Debbie tells Bill that he can't expect her to run a house and gets CSE's as well. Mavis decides to turn Derek down as she isn't sure that she loves him. Billy gives Fred the afternoon off to look for work and discovers he's gone to the races. Bill feels guilty about the way he has heaped burdens on Debbie.
