Terry still refuses to bring Emily in and goes for a job at the meat market, telling Curly that he wants to sell everything. Bet turns on her charm to get Alec to give her a turn on discount. Mike gives Terry advice, telling him that he's cheating himself by not having proper books. Alec is impressed when Bet flirts with him. He agrees to take her on a tour of his circuit so she can see his acts. Terry tells Curly that he doesn't mind if they do their own books; he's confident that Curly can fiddle then. They agree to start the partnership again. Curly pays for the van repairs. Alf gets sick of being involved in the Tilsleys' divorce row. He advises Gail to get herself a solicitor. Bet is impressed by Alec's artistes but tells him that she's only interested in cheap turns. He refuses. She decides to show him that she can do things herself and plans an open-mike night as it doesn't cost anything.
