Mavis is annoyed that the parsnips didn't arouse Derek. She needs to know that he finds her sexually attractive. Tracy wants Deirdre to marry Phil so they'll be rich. Ivy tells Alf that it would be a good idea to open evenings. Deirdre gets the telesales job, selling fitted kitchens. She feels useless after a morning of people putting the phone down and making improper suggestions. She discovers that Ingram's are looking for a sales rep.
