First thing in the morning, Albert is grumpier than usual with the milkman and Stan. Ray is depressed about the contract while Len is more upbeat. They resolve not to tell Emily what they're up to. Ernie tells Ena his plans to do up the Camera Shop while a troubled Emily watches on. Emily confesses the full story to Ena and that she faces eviction when Willie Piggott cancels the lease when he discovers he's not won the conract. Alan asks for Cyril's help to appeal the driving fine he's been given. Cyril is not pleased when Stan asks for his help in detecting who shopped him in. Albert rails that he was born too soon to enjoy the affluent society. Len and Ray enjoy telling Piggott that Roscoe & Pitts got the student hostel contract, much to Emily's relief. A scared Hilda tells Stan that she knows nothing about who shopped him. Emily thinks providence stopped Piggott but Ena has her own suspicions. Stan decides to show contempt to his enemies, making Hilda relieved. Albert is furious with Betty when she takes his unfinished drink away and he refuses a replacement from Len. Ena discovers from Len and Ray that they sold Roscoe & Pitts their cheap material so that he could undercut them, saving the shop and its flat and getting one up on Piggott. She thanks them for saving her from being homeless and buys them a drink. Albert complains to Cyril when his allotment is vandalised. Cyril gets sick of everyone having a go at him because he's a policeman. He considers leaving now that he's served his twenty-five years. Ray winds up Elsie about her and Alan though Alan himself has hopes in that direction. Albert gets in supplies and shuts his front door on society.
