Rita wants a dishwasher but Len refuses to let her have one as he says they can't afford it. Deirdre tries to sort out her Social Security entitlements. Alf helps her. She finds she can only claim £24.70 a week. She tells Len she'd like to start again at the yard, part-time. Hilda paints the skirting boards and finds by mistake that she can copy abstract art. Rita is amazed that Len is taking Deirdre back on at the yard when he has no money. Gail waits outside The Roxy for Brian but he doesn't turn up. Dave Barnes finds Karen at No.1 and rows with her for continuing to have lessons. Ken realises Dave himself can't read and is frightened that Karen will find out. Rita tells Len that she'll walk out if he employs Deirdre.
