Frank is hurt at the thought they'll move away. Ena and Martha gossip about how lonely he'll be. Minnie doesn't like her house anymore after the death of her mother and wants to move into No.5, partially because it has an indoor toilet. Swindley promises to ask the landlord for her. Val thinks they should stay with Frank but Ken refuses to remain in No.3. They think about buying No.9 as Val could start a hairdressing business in the front room. Sheila and Doreen get excited at the thought of Len's new lad, thinking he must be tall, dark and handsome. They are initially disappointed when they see Jerry in his cycling shorts.
