Audrey arrives at Gail's house with her suitcase. Les Boden has thrown her out and she has nowhere to stay and she has given up her job. Gail lets her stay on the sofa. Deirdre panics when Tracy disappears. Ken and Alf search for her. Alf finds her locked in the bathroom. Tracy doesn't like it in there and starts to cry. Albert's old pal from the Somme, Monty Shawcross, visits him. Deirdre reads to Tracy through the keyhole. Alf gets a ladder up to the bathroom window but is too high up for Tracy to pass the key to him. Albert is jealous as Monty is marching with their old regiment to the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday. Audrey swears she's never going to get herself in trouble with men again. Tracy lets herself out of the bathroom after Alf has spent an hour trying to climb through the window. Jim Sedgewick decides that he doesn't want a pregnant waitress and tells Gail it's time she left the cafe.
