Kevin sees Fizz waving John off. She tells him that he is going to check up on the school disco for this evening. Kevin mentions he is buying Fizz’s Christmas present. Yeah, right.
John and Sophie are at the side of the road – making out like teenagers. Wait. Sophie is a teenager. They start to make out and a tow truck pulls up behind them. He starts freaking out that it is Kevin. Sophie turns around to see that it wasn’t her father. He is relieved. She laughs and they continue smooching.
John drops off Rosie off several streets away – she demands to be let out in front of her house. John mentions that a lot of people will get hurt if they are discovered. Really?! Rosie mentions that they can see more of each over the Christmas holidays. She gets out of the car in a bad mood and he demands a kiss. She is about to kiss him when she claims it is too risky and marches off smiling to herself.
Lauren appears once the last box has been moved into the house. Violet holds out her hand and Jamie hands over the fiver. Jamie tells her Lauren she can help with the painting tomorrow – and she confirms that interior design is her thing. She will do a colour scheme which does not scream hormonal. Ouch.
Ryan (Sorry no actual male Bratz dolls, yet)
Ryan demands that he wants to go off to his competition, but Michelle thinks it is a good idea that he stay in – with the lurker around. Steve then tells Liz that Michelle needs some time off. Steve’s solution is to take Amy to Jim’s for a few hours.
Steve picks up Amy and announces that Jim can look after her for a few hours. Liz’s face looks blank and she really doesn’t know how to react to this.
Later on, Ryan returns with Michelle and Steve. He seems very pleased with himself. Apparently, he has done well in the video game competition qualifiers. Michelle cannot believe she is bragging about a son who is a computer geek. Ryan tells her it will be a lot better when the money starts rolling in from the competitions. Steve convinces Michelle that Ryan should return to school. And perhaps the stalker was scared off. He offers StreetCars to provide security to and from school.
We meet Sarah and David snipping at each other in the Salon. How does any work actually get done? Sarah is furious that David gets a new life in Italy and Audrey points out to her that he will actually be out of her hair, (get it?) She complains that he should not be rewarded for his terrible behaviour. I do see her point.
Sarah is nagging Jason over at the yard about working on a Saturday – and that David won’t be working weekends in Milan. Sarah remains upset that they have not been offered the opportunity given the responsibility they have shown. (You mean locking up Bethany in her cage in the attic?)
Stephen walks into the Salon looking for Audrey. David responds in Italian that she is out, and in English suggests the Rovers. David goes across the street to the pub to fetch her. Sarah uses the time along to speak to Stephen. She asks him if he if he is a gambler sending David to Milan. She offers some advice – not let him near money, good looking women or computers – but he just smiles and thanks her for the tips. Personally if I were him – I would be curious and want to know more.
In the pub, David meets Mel and her mate Abi, who is a policewoman. Abi shoots down David’s attempt to pick her up. The next scene – Dan tries to do the same thing. She tells Mel that, “He will keep, as he is with his father in the pub”.
As usual, at the Platt household – David and Sarah are fighting. Sarah tells him he should not pack his suitcase just yet as Stephen will come to his senses and she will make sure that she will be the one to tell him. David doesn’t believe it and tells her that she is just jealous. He replies, that she couldn’t say anything that could change Stephen’s mind at this point. David then puts down Sarah about her horrible marriage and her dreary life. And how he is has ambition and wants success. Sarah replies he better watch his back.
