Annie discovers the brewery is holding a 'Perfect Landlady' competition. Dave tells Val to keep out of his business. Maggie tells Lilian that if Dave were to die, Elsie would get the lot. The OAPs win their fight and the clubhouse is saved. Lillian agrees on more money from Dave each week, and no divorce. Annie drives the customers mad with niceness. Elsie refuses to pick up again with Dave. Ray asks a delighted Annie if they can nominate her for the competition.
