Victor and Mavis return from the Lake District. Mavis is glad to be back. Chalkie packs and Phyllis tries to stop him leaving. Alf refuses to attend the disco protest meeting. Anti-discoer, Mrs Harper's son, Neil, throws a brick through Mike's office window. Mike decides to attend the protest meeting to see what he's up against. Mavis suffers as the skin on her ankle is rubbed away. She tells Victor that she found the holiday too much of an assault course. He is disappointed with her attitude. Chalkie refuses to let Phyllis join in his farewell party. She thinks that Alice Kirby will take him for all his money and bump him. Stan and Eddie get drunk - they agree that the idea of a disco is awful as the noise will be too much. Thinking no cars will park in the Street if it had yellow lines, they paint some in the Street with orange paint.
