Lucille is excited at his potential good fortune but Harry insists she goes to school. Val offers a free hair-do to Ena as a birthday present.

Laurie arrives and thinks the Booths are an auditioning act. He gives Dennis a questionnaire to fill out about their acts. An excited Walter tells Dennis he's going to London to make a recording. Myra admits to Val that she struggles on her housekeeping. Ena changes her mind about moving when she hears that the new harmonium has been delivered.
