Albert heads to the West End for "a bit of a spend up". We see him in a Tailors, the dentist (for a new set of choppers) and rather surprisingly a beauty salon. The results are there to see as a "Dapper Albert" returns home unrecognisable to Harold "Cor Blimey ole Reilly Dad what have they done to you" Disappointed at Harold's annoyed response the old man heads "back up town" for a couple of days.
Five days later we find Harold living on his own in disarray. Albert returns with his friend Madge played by a young June Whitfield who makes a stunning entrance to Harold's disgust. Harold smells a scam and on hearing Madge's pet name for his father is "Albie" responds with "I could think of a more apt name".
