Don books a coach for the Blackpool trip. Alf tells Audrey he doesn't want her to go on the trip with Malcolm Reid. She refuses to be ordered around and refuses to listen. Malcolm tells Audrey she's wasted with Alf; life should be exciting for her. Percy contacts old friend Arnold Swift and talks him into going on the trip and he tells him there's an attractive widow woman going who's his sort. Alf gets annoyed when Malcolm hints that Audrey's life is a drudge. He decides to go on the trip but it's fully booked.
