Tony Newall makes Ron Sykes, Brian's boss, knock £50 off his bill as Brian used the car. Ron is furious as Tony involved the police, thinking the car had been stolen. He sacks Brian on the spot. Gail breaks down when Brian tells her that he's been fired. The Swains' door sticks more and more but Arnold still refuses to pay the bill so Len still refuses to mend it. Annie returns from visiting Joan. Fred tries to draw her attention from the sideboard. Emily arranges for Len to repair the door, saying that she'll pay him as she can't stand it going on any longer. Martin's ear goes septic so he takes the earring out. Ivy can't believe that Brian has lost his job and blames Audrey. She plans to see Ron about getting his job back.
