Rita asks Mavis to get her cabaret clothes out of the house behind Len's back. Mavis refuses to get involved. Eddie asks Stan if he can use the house whilst Hilda is away to court Lorna Ferguson - Stan agrees. Gail can't cope on her own as Mrs Bolton is too slow. Jim Sedgewick helps out and tells her that she'll have to work Sunday as well. She protests but he threatens to sack her if she doesn't. Rita returns home for her dresses. Fred tells Len he's seen her and Len returns home in time to catch her. He assumes she's back to stay and gloats. She tells him that she's only come for her things and leaves. Ralph Lancaster escorts Rita to a cabaret engagement. Len loans Elsie money. Lorna encourages Eddie to think of his future. He realises he wants to settle down. Len tells Elsie that Rita has left him. Stan barges into No.13 and interrupts Eddie and Lorna. Ralph offers a flat to Rita. She knows there's strings attached.
