Bill tells Jenny that she hates her new job at the factory, and the hours are causing a strain on her well-being. Ben catches the flu. Bill has to watch the next-door neighbours Leonard and Nora Grimes' elderly dog, Rufus, who suffers from flatulence. When Rufus becomes sick with digestive problems the Porters must decide whether to euthanise him or let him live in pain. Bill gives Ben some of Rufus' aspirins but in the night he starts feeling worse and vomits. Ben is upset that Bill had Rufus euthanised and asks if she would do the same to him. David has become fascinated by death, especially after seeing a report on TV about a fire in the High Street which has killed some people. He wants to watch as their bodies are being brought out, but Bill refuses to let him. In the middle of the night, David buries his teddy bear in a shoe-box coffin in the back garden.
