Len and Stan both have hangovers after the party. Without forewarning Len, Jerry takes on ex-Borstal boy Ray Langton to look after the office while they're working on the Brewery contract. Len doesn't trust him. Dennis reads a self-help book and feels he's reached a crossroads in his life. Elsie thinks he's just being daft and kicks him out of his bed. Jerry is annoyed at Len's constant drinking at the brewery on their free samples. Brewery workers Joss Lightfoot and Ronnie Wigg have a dig at Jerry because he won't drink whilst working. Ena beats Jed at a darts match with a drink as the prize. Hilda accuses Jim Mount of leading Stan into too much drinking. Egged on by Ronnie, Jerry takes a punch at him and gets annoyed at Len for letting the job get behind. Dennis likes Jed's idea of holding auctions, but realises they'll need premises. Elsie throws Dennis's books out of the window. Ray asks Lucille out - she is taken by him. Jim reminds Stan that when drunk at the party he offered him a room at No.13. Stan thinks it's a good idea. Minnie thinks Dennis needs a psychiatrist and does the job herself. A stunned Hilda is introduced by Stan to her new lodger.
