Jerry is confused over the baby and doesn't know how to behave towards Sheila. Annie tries to find out how much Lucille earns with the intention of giving her financial advice. At the factory, Bet Lynch grows annoyed at Lucille's speed. Annie is horrified to discover from Hilda that Lucille earns £13, 10 a week. David promises tickets for the World Cup match between Brazil and Bulgaria in Liverpool on 12th July when pressed by the menfolk. Sheila tells Jerry her baby is Neil's. Lucille tries to make out she only earns £9 a week but Annie sees through the deception. The Walkers make her agree to put some money aside each week. Ken's film society grows in numbers as the residents gather for a showing. He leaves Dennis in charge of the second film but Ena, Minnie and Annie walk out when he shows a nudist film by mistake - the others ask for the showing to continue and the menfolk rush round to watch the film when they hear of it. Sheila doesn't know where she stands with Jerry when he confesses that he can't accept that she had a baby by Neil.
