Gail returns to work to find Alma has cut down on quantity and put the prices up. Gail thinks it's ridiculous to charge 40p for a cup of tea. Don suggests that Ivy gives up her job to look after the children but she likes work too much. Stella Rigby asks Alec why he's saying Bet and Paul had an affair. She tells him that Bet's too old for Paul. Alec tells her that he found them together in the pub after midnight. Stella refuses to leave before she's seen Bet. Audrey is annoyed that Ivy offered Gail financial help and warns her off. Stella calls Bet a bitch for breaking the Licenced Victuallers rule of sleeping with husbands. She asks her to keep Paul's name out of the divorce courts. Alma tells Gail that she is no longer to make management decisions. Don's taxi passenger Harry Slinger can't afford his £40 fare so he leaves his greyhound Lucky as security. Don brings the dog home to Ivy's fury. Bet breaks down over Alec's tactics.
