Mrs Armitage has to visit her brother so she leaves Lucy Armitage with sister Shirley and Curly. With Shirley at work all day Curly has to entertain her. Bet spends all her time spoiling Rover and delighting in watching Alec feel uncomfortable with it. Shirley doesn't like the idea of having Lucy around, feeling she'll take Curly for a mug. Mavis applies for a new job as head of distribution at a stationery firm to prove she's worth something and isn't Rita's doormat.
