Stan thinks David is under the thumb. Hilda is under the mistaken impression that Irma is pregnant. Irma thinks Stan will make a mess of the the ice cream business, upsetting Hilda. Ena and Len enjoy themselves by playing up to each other while all the time Len enjoys her meals. Wally complains that Ruth is treating them like children and refuses to go to the Over 60's Club‏‎. Irma apologises to Hilda. She tries to get more unregistered tick but David almost catches them. Stan plans to do his milk-round in the mornings and sell ice cream in the afternoons. The menfolk are amused when Stan tells them he plans to ask David to buy into his business. Annie is insulted when Ruth asks her to join the Over 60's Club‏‎ and tells her she's only just passed fifty. Wally starts to organise a boycott of the club conning Ernie Mills, Dave Smith's clerk, into joining him. Irma has Stan and Hilda round for tea, annoying David. They gossip about Elliston's Raincoat Factory being revamped and changed to plastic welding. David points out that the shop sells ice creams and Stan will be going into competition with him. Stan and Hilda dismiss his concerns. He's annoyed that Stan assumes he's going into business with him and for helping himself to shop cigarettes. Annie complains to Ena about Ruth who has trouble getting interest for the community centre and realises that people are starting to work against her. David tackles Irma about not writing down Hilda's shopping in the tick book. They row and she tells him that she's going to get a job away from the shop.
