Martin smuggles Len's tool bag out of the Yard so he can do plumbing jobs behind Rita's back to keep the company going. Bet's picture is on the front page of the Gazette along with the bin boycott story. She worries when the article quotes her as criticising Annie. Betty begs Eddie to take the rubbish away as Annie is away but the binmen still refuse to touch it. Ken can't bear to see Albert depressed over no longer having his medal and buys it back for him. Albert is annoyed but accepts it back in remembrance of his dead friends. Len is adamant that marriage is not a partnership, there has to be a boss - the man. Bob Atkinson offers the Yard some work and asks Rita out for a drink to discuss the contract. The Brewery sees the paper and demand to see Annie. Nellie Harvey phones Annie and tells her about the article. Annie phones Betty and says she's coming home, blaming the staff for betraying her to the gutter press. Bet panics.
