She says he often beats her and her mother and her mum blames her for making him lose his temper. Albert discovers that her dad, Jim Schofield, is one of the workmen digging up the Street. Jed looks for somewhere to live. Susan lets Albert take her home when he promises to make sure her dad doesn't hit her again. Jerry fears the basins were stolen and asks Ena if Jed is trustworthy.

Elsie warns him to be miles away when Len gets back, for his own safety. Albert faces Jim in the Street. He bravely stands his ground against his younger adversary, calling him a bully.
