Ivy tells Don that she has a message for Emily from Ernest. He warns her not to bother Emily with it. Mike visits Jackie before Ralph Dobson can get to her. He advises her to run the factory until it's a seller's market. She agrees, thinking Peter would want her to make a go of it. Tracy worries that she'll never see Ken if he moves to Kent. Mavis feels threatened by the bikers and decides to enroll in a self-defence class. Percy tells Jim that people are complaining about his scrapyard. Jim tells him to get them to take their complaints to him directly. Mike tells Dobson that Jackie plans to run the factory on her own. Ralph is concerned about her lack of business experience and thinks she'll run it into the ground. Mike persuades him to stand up to her. Tracy threatens to live with Ken when she's sixteen. Deirdre doubts Ken will really leave and accuses him of trying to drive a wedge between her and Tracy. Emily is angry when Ivy tells her that Ernie is trying to get in touch. She tells Ivy that she's behaving stupidly. After failing to get Jackie to change her mind about selling, Ralph tells her that she's out of her depth and refuses to help; he walks out.

Notable dialogueEdit

Emily Bishop (to Ivy Brennan): "I dare say you mean well. But good intentions don't justify stupidity. In my opinion you're deluding yourself in a very silly way. Now that's your own affair, but I must insist you do not include me... or Ernest... in your delusions."
