Bet refuses to work on her day off. Annie tells Fred that he'll have to cope on his own. Blanche writes to Deirdre offering the family a holiday. Ken tells Deirdre he hasn't got the time. Annie persuades Bet to work, telling her that she doesn't have to talk to Fred. The customers leave the pub because of the icy atmosphere. Deirdre feels bored with Ken and, telling him she's seeing a girlfriend, calls on Mike. He tells her that she needs him as he's not reliable or steady. She feels frightened of her feelings for him. Annie summons Betty, Bet and Fred and tells them if they don't cheer up, she'll sack them all. To get away from Mike for a bit, Deirdre decides to visit Blanche.
