Ken plans to decorate No.1 himself, Deirdre doesn't think that he's capable. Len goes to the Social Services about fostering. Jim's wife Alma Sedgewick tries to cope at the cafe single-handedly. Eunice thinks that Annie's reference might have put the brewery off. Social Worker Don Worthington interviews the Faircloughs at No.9. The Vicar at St. Mary's refuses to marry Ken and Deirdre as she's divorced. John Ridley tells Fred that he was turned down as the Gees are unsuitable. The Faircloughs fill in fostering forms. Annie interviews Frank Pritchard, the prospective new potman. Elsie asks Alma for a job at the cafe. Alma agrees to take her on - as her assistant, and for less money than before. Annie arranges with Pritchard to move in as soon as the Gees leave. The Gees are forced to tell her about their rejection. Annie tells them that she'll get to the bottom of the matter with the brewery.
