Jerry stops Len and Ray fighting. He makes Len see that Ray is a good plumber and they need one. He tells Len that he and Ray are very alike. In response, Len refuses to sack Stan. Dennis looks forward to his £100 commission. The residents think it's unnatural that Les Clegg is never in the Rovers. Shirley Walton feels threatened by Lucille being around. She tells Ray she'll kill her if he goes near her. Dennis is horrified when he only gets £25 wages for the month. Elsie begins to look for a job; she doesn't want to use Steve's money. Elsie discovers a bundle of £5's in Dennis' pocket. The site workers down tools when Stan arrives to work on the maisonettes.
