A jealous Phyllis feels Emily is taking advantage of Percy and is luring him into her clutches. Mavis tells paperboy Wayne Pickles she's sick of having to do his round and sacks him. She gives Jason Stubbs his job. Phyllis tells Percy that Emily is only after his body and tells him he should move in with her instead. Percy tells her she's cracked. Don brings his mother and daughter Margaret Bell to meet Ivy. Ivy is alarmed to find Mrs Brennan so argumentative and such a hypochondriac. Jason starts his paper round. He returns with a bloody nose, saying he tripped over. Mavis realises Wayne has hit him. Percy moves his things into No.3.
