Cheech and Rocco: Restauranteurs
Molly and Tyrone are doing the dishes and try to get Paul to do a bit cleaning but he brushes them off and heads off to the restaurant.
At the restaurant, Leanne is preparing for another day of business when two shady looking characters come in, holding a copy of the restaurant review she received the other day. They want to have a little lunch, and perhaps meet the chef but she tells them they’re not open yet and could they please come back later. They ask if they could order a bottle of the most expensive wine on the menu and wait for the place to open.
Paul arrives and sees the men, recognises them, panics, and goes back home without them seeing him. They wait for some longer and when it’s clear he’s not showing up, they tell Leanne what’s up: they’re the guys he stole from at the last restaurant he worked out, and there were a few indiscretions as well. When he does arrive, they tell her, they are going to take back the money he owes them. Otherwise, Leanne can just tell them where Paul lives. She refuses and threatens to call the police. They advise against it, saying it will be bad for business and she’d lose her top chef.
Meanwhile at the Duckworth’s, Paul comes home and tells Molly and Tyrone he wasn’t supposed to work after all and offers to clean the house. Leanne calls to warn him that he’s going to have visitors shortly. He panics and tells Tyrone to hold them off while he bolts out through the back alley.
Tyrone answers the door to the two goons, asking after Paul. He claims not to have heard any “Paul” and tries to shut the door but Rocco plays the old “stick the foot in the doorway” trick favoured by salesmen and religious sollicitors. Becky passes by and asks Ty if he’s ok. They tell Ty they want their £500 back but aren’t bothered about the wife.
The men go back to the restaurant, threaten Leanne, take her float (about £200), a case of good wine, and the good knives. Leanne is too intimidated to do anything and now, she won’t be able to open her restaurant.
Later, Paul owns up to Molly and Tyrone and tries to get them not to tell Jack and Vera. He also cracks a joke about sleeping with a man’s wife when Molly slaps him -hard- and says there are going to be a few changes around here.
Funniest Line of the Night
Again it belongs to Blanche. Jason and Sarah come in to the café to ask for porridge. Becky says it’s really Roy who does that with his special pan that nobody else is allowed to use.
“I can do a porridge in the microwave,” says Blanche. “That’ll do for a Platt.”
Anyway, Eileen just heard from her son Todd, who is coming to the wedding. This is suprising given his history with Sarah but he’s even going to Jason’s stag party.
Also, Eileen bought herself a fancy new outfit. Turns out Gail got the same one a few weeks ago.
