Susan starts work at the factory, annoying Emily by sharing her office. She manages to win back a cancelled order by smoothing over an over-zealous manager. Ken holds the raffle and gets Alf to pull the winning card. The winner is someone who is always having exotic holidays. Emily lets two waterboard men into No.3 to check her water pressure. Mike gets Emily to agree to sharing her office, saying that if she doesn't he'll have to sack one of them. Curly entertains Lois Fairhurst to a meal at No.3. He discovers that the waterboard men were bogus and have stolen his new £480 telescope. Emily is furious at herself for being taken in.
