Alf has a dizzy turn at the thought of selling No.11 and goes to the doctor. Vera starts work at Bettabuy under Curly's management. Doctor Crawford advises Alf to go on a diet and tells him buying a new flat will do him good as he could walk to work. Alan is forced to take a labouring job at the building site. Vera gets into trouble at work when she breaks the store detective's cover. Curly has to get Vera to tone down her make-up. She turns on him for siding with Renee Dodds, the store detective, against her. Rita decides to hibernate at home. Alf accuses Dawn of pushing Audrey into buying a flat. She flees after he gives her a mouthful. Rita is horrified to see Alan working on the building site opposite her house.
