Bert is upset as Ivy falls out with Vera over the driver's job. Hilda forces Stan to go for the driving job by threatening to withhold his food. John worries about his mother's operation. Eddie starts breeding rabbits. Ivy and Vera row over who deserves the driving job. Mike interviews Bert, Jack and Stan. Hilda refuses to let Eddie breed rabbits to be eaten. John's mother's operation goes well. Mike gives the driver's job to Bernard Clough, Ida's son. He tells Ivy that Bert didn't get the job as they'd have wanted to take their holidays together. He didn't give Stan the job as a favour to him and if he gave the job to Jack, he'd get even less work out of Vera. Rita is upset that Mrs Spencer will soon be out of hospital.
