Elsie and Ida tell Vera that it's too risky to make the bags. Deirdre returns home and she is pleased when Ken suggests a family outing to see Aladdin. Ken applies for the job of Deputy Director of Social Services. Mike finds out about Sammy Patel visiting the girls. He accuses them of making more bags and sacks them. The girls maintain their innocence and tell him that Sammy was offering £150 a week. Phyllis reads Chalkie's bank book and discovers he's got £300 saved. She is upset when he eats Elsie's dinner rather than hers. Eddie names the bin wagon Rosie and hopes to drive it full-time. Ken pulls out of the pantomime as he's working. Deirdre is disappointed. Mike sends for Sammy and tells him that he'll supply five hundred bags a week for £1.75 each. Mike invites Deirdre out for a meal - she agrees.
