Tracy worries that her school trip to France might be in jeopardy as Deirdre is in financial trouble. Ivy annoys Alf by sending Mavis to Bettabuy for parsnips as they don't have any in stock. Jack worries that the insurance company will send an assessor to view No.9. Deirdre goes to the job centre and discovers that she hasn't got any skills and will have to re-train. She contacts an old Council friend, Clive Wallace, but he can only offer her a cleaning job. Audrey gives Ivy the runaround at the shop. Deirdre gets a job interview for telephone sales. Jack peels all the paper off the dry walls. Phil offers to pay for Tracy's school trip but Deirdre doesn't let him. Mavis feeds Derek "parsnip surprise". Jacks tells Vera that he's peeled the paper off the other walls to make the damage look worse than it is and be able to get the entire house decorated on the insurance. Vera is delighted with the idea and starts pulling the paper off herself.
