Fred is furious to discover that Annie had an invite to the Graffiti Club. When a cleaner doesn't turn up at the club, Hilda steps in, although she's worn out from her other jobs. The auctioneers clear No.9 of Chalkie's furniture - including the Duckworths'. Vera is horrified and fights the men for her furniture. Hilda tries on a fur coat left in the cloakroom. The estate agent is called to sort out the hassle over No.9. He makes Jack take the Duckworths' furniture out of the house. Vera tries to make off with some of Chalkie's furniture but Jack lets her down. Ivy refuses to let them store the stuff at No.5. When Vera pleads with him, Mike lets her store the furniture in the loading bay. Brian works late at the garage. He tells Gail that he's had enough and is going to sell up.
