Frank rows with Ken for not telling him he'd given up his job. He refuses to let Dennis get him a job. Ken tells him he's not prepared to listen to him calling him 'idle' anymore and he'd do any job to pay his way. Minnie buys a see-through nightie from Swindley. Word spreads that Ken asked Dennis for a job - Elsie is amused. Returning from an Adam Faith concert Christine meets Ken at the station coffee room. He tells her he's leaving for London but she makes him realise that he's running away from himself and he returns home.
