Gail forces herself to keep quiet about George Hepworth's pass. Shirley Armitage discovers that Mike's Japanese business adviser runs a takeaway. Ivy realises that Mike's been having them on about Japanese working practises. She leads the girls into playing Mike at his own game. Emily is thrilled that the fundraising raised £326.47. Mike is put out when the girls call him "honourable boss" and bow to him. Billy tells Emily that he's in trouble and needs to borrow £6,000; to pay his debts and buy into a wine bar. He asks her to loan him the money. Audrey goes shopping for her wedding outfit. Ivy and the girls keep bowing to Mike - he tells them they look ridiculous. Emily tells Deirdre about Billy asking her for money. She doesn't know what to do. Vera gets the girls to make an effigy of Mike so they can take their frustrations out on it, Japanese style. Brian doesn't understand why Gail is short with Audrey and refuses to go out with her and George. Deirdre asks Billy to leave Emily out of his affairs. He advises her not to stop Emily; for her own good.
