It’s a lazy Sunday and Tyrone is doing a fry-up for the Duckworths, who insist he add an extra sausage for St. Paul, patron of grandchildren everywhere. Paul arrives with a copy of Lancashire Life for Vera and offers to take everyone out for pints in the Rovers later.
Jack insists on paying and goes to the Charles and Diana Memorial Cookie Tin to find a little cash. He finds £200 missing and asks Vera if she took. She denies (it was Paul, of course), as does everyone else. Paul assures them that he’s sure it’ll turn up.
Later, when they are preparing to leave, Paul reminds his grandparents that he’s still treating them at the pub. As they leave, Paul quickly returns the money he took to the Charles and Diana Memorial Cookie Tin.
Later in the Rovers, Tyrone and Molly talk about the missing money. Tyrone doesn’t think Jack is losing his faculties and is sure Paul took. Later he goes back to the Duckworths to search the tin himself, when, of course, Jack and Paul walk in on him. Jack finds the missing money in the tin and now everyone is convinced Tyrone is a crook.
That’s Not How You Report Your VAT
Liam is spending his lazy Sunday doing his VAT receipts (it’s like GST and we all love GST, don’t we?) at the office with the help of Rosie. And by help, Rosie means sitting on his desk and shoving her boobs in Liam’s face.
Liam is staying clear of this trouble and gets Rosie to go help while working at another desk. Later, he just sends her home, rebuffing her offers of overtime.
He later joins Maria for a pint. That’s when he finds out Tony Gordon had a drink with Carla and gave her a lift home (they had a chat – clearly, he’s interested. She’s standoff-ish.). Liam fumes about his brother not being dead four months but Maria points out that she can’t mourn forever.
ROY AND HAYLEY
Hayley suggests to Roy that they go away for a bit to talk things over. Roy thinks the trouble between them can’t be solved with a change of scenery. He also wonders if his episode yesterday was a nervous breakdown. He doesn’t think the trip is a good idea.
Hayley later suggests she go away by herself, if he won’t go with her. Roy suddenly remembers that the 30 right-of-return on his new tent is almost up so they should use it anyway, to test it out, BECAUSE ROY CROPPER HAS ASPERGER’S.
So plans are made for a little camping excursion (in October) and Becky is going to run the café with the only person Hayley could find at short notice: Blanche. Comedy hijinks are scheduled to ensue.

Cilla is making her new fancyman/employer a breakfast in remembrance of their time in America, that traditional Yankee classic: pancakes and chicken wings. The hell? Anyhow, she didn’t have maple syrup so she put HP Sauce on it instead and she didn’t cook the chicken wings.
He complains and gives her some of his dead wife’s bling and tells her that there’s a lot more to come.
Oh, and there was some bit about Michelle and Steve trying to cook a fry-up together in privacy but were unable to. It was all quite pointless, really. But there it is. It happened.
