The residents hear of Elsie's moonlight flit. Fred sets about selling the Rover as he can't afford to run it. The Tilsleys persuade Ivy to have a night out at bingo. Fred is upset when no one wants to buy the Rover. Brian offers him £60 for scrap. The insurance on the Rover is worth more than the car. Hilda arranges to take a photograph of the offending pavement to take to the Town Hall. Ken agrees to run a piece on Stan's toe. At bingo, Ivy runs into newly-widowed Arthur Whittaker. Hilda refuses to allow Stan out of the house until she gets compensation. Ivy wins £20 at bingo. Arthur walks her home so she isn't mugged. Jack agrees to "steal" the Rover so Fred can claim on the insurance. Jack's cut will be 25% of the £600. Fred agrees.
