Len agrees to work on the maisonettes. Jenny threatens to leave unless Elsie is nicer to her. David tells the Gazette about his Australia plans in an attempt to interest people in the shop. Emily tells Val that she wants Miklos and wants to marry him but he doesn't want roots. David is horrified when he reads the report in the paper. Miklos tells Val it is because he cares for Emily that he can't pursue her - he knows he'll hurt her. The story on David says that "Young people want more out of life that this town can offer; a vista of dirty back streets, railway arches and the eternal dingy local pub. According to a close family friend, Mr and Mrs Barlow feel that the one man grocer's shop in this day and age is a complete anachronism." David realises Albert has been on to the paper. Lucille rows with Emily for taking the day off work and is told to shut up by her. Val protects Albert from David. Albert tells her that he got £2 for giving the paper the story. Dennis asks Elsie to try to get on better with Jenny. Lucille discovers that Miklos has been transferred to Newcastle.

Miss Nugent: "Always responsible, always guaranteed to do the right thing. Good old Miss Nugent, everybody's muggins. We can rely on her. Oh, they all did it. Mr Swindley. Mr Papagopolous. Father. I tell you, I'm sick of it. Sick to death of being a...a blasted human crutch."
