Ken is horrified at the state of No.11 when he arrives back home. An angry Rita refuses to give Mavis any money. Ken shows Douglas Marsh the house. Marsh offers him £30 to keep quiet but Ken makes him see that the boys have to be sorted out. Edna Gee celebrates her fortieth birthday. Ena helps clean up No.11 for Ken, roping Ivy, Edna, Tricia and Gail into the task. The lads consider running away after Mr Marsh tries to lay into them with a belt but is stopped by an appalled Ken. Jerry tells Rita that she's cruel, bullying and ungrateful. The Tilsleys and the Gees go out. Edna isn't pleased when her husband Fred flirts with Ivy. Rita has enough of everyone getting at her and decides to leave the area. The lads seek refuge for the night away from their father in the warehouse storeroom where Kevin Marsh leaves a cigarette burning.

- Four years before the introduction of Peter Dudley as Bert Tilsley in Episode 1881 (29th January 1979) as the husband of Ivy, this episode and several others at this time speaks of "Jack" as being her husband and the character appears in this episode and the next played by Bert Gaunt. The change of the character and actor was made in the late 1970s as fellow factory worker Vera Duckworth constantly spoke of her husband also being called Jack in the interim.
