Raquel gets a job demonstrating microwave popcorn and asks Jack to make up an excuse for her to tell Alec. Andy gets tired of Steve moaning about subbing him and asks Curly for a part-time job at Bettabuy. Vera worries that seeing Jack in the hearse was a premonition of his death.

Jack tells Alec that Raquel can't work as she has back trouble. Bet thinks Raquel is useless and should be sacked. Jim finds out from Curly that Andy's student grant might not be as much as he hopes. Ted tells Rita he doesn't intend to work again after he retires. Vera realises that Jack was driving the hearse when Ivy tells her that Don has a second job pallbearing and is furious that he denied her seeing him. She determines to find his earnings and spend them. Liz doesn't want Andy to have to work and asks Bet for her job back. Bet is glad to have an excuse to get rid of Raquel and says there'll be no problem. Vera finds Jack's money in his pigeon coop and goes on a shopping spree with it. Discovering what she's done, Jack "confesses" to Vera that he got a job to help with Terry to make up for being a terrible father. Vera believes him and feels awful, promising to repay the money. Raquel short-changes Reg. Alec doesn't discipline her as Reg overlooks it when she flirts with him.
