Gail is off to the Rovers and tells David if she needs anything to call her. He sarcastically mentions he will call her if he tops himself. When the door closes behind her Sarah replies to his comment “Poor little David. A failure in everything. Can’t even top himself without screwing it up!”
Sarah begins to put the next stage of into action and sighs to Stephen alone in the kitchen. She says she is angry with David for letting Stephen down. Sarah mentions how she is back to square one looking for a new place to live with Bethany and Jason. There is no comment from Stephen.
Vern and Dev are at the Rovers discussing the ‘entertainment’ for Liz’s hen night. Apparently a stripper “Commando Sam” (That is funny on so many levels) will be the entertainment for the evening. Jim overhears the conversation replies, “That is thing with Elizabeth so it was. She could never resist a man in uniform.” (Jim was in the army…)
All the men are shooed away from the Rovers by Liz. All of the sudden, a man with dreadlocks, sunglasses and camouflage fatigues starts dancing around the pub. Each take turn having a lap dance. Personally, I think he was wearing too much. Remember Tony the stripper from the garage? They should have called him….
Maria and Carla
Everyone is sitting around for the hen do to start. Blanche discusses her favourite man. Betty mentions Eamonn Holmes. Liz tells Vernon was the best kisser ever. Carla pops in and says that her Tony was the best. Maria says that no one can beat her Liam. (Can I find out) When Carla replies: “Oh please. He’s not ‘that’ good!” All eyes turn to Carla.
Maria looks at Carla across the bar, their eyes meet but Carla turns away. I don’t think she realized what she just admits to everyone. Michelle confronts Carla but she admits to her it was before Paul and after his his death.
Blanche in her usual comical fashion says to Maria: “Your boyfriend puts it about a bit then?. Our Deidre used to be a bit like that but now she has the sex life of a nun.” She is hilarious!!
Maria confronts Carla in the ladies’ and wants to know all the details. She tells Maria the same thing she told Michelle. Carla says she is not having an affair and that it hasn’t/won’t happen again. She tells her, “I could never be the other woman. I’ve got too much self respect.”
At the flat, Liam is surprised to see Maria so early and asks what is wrong.
She confronts Liam and asks about the kiss and if Carla fancies him. He is taken aback and realizes what is happening… He tells her that he has never asked about all her other kisses and it is not a big deal. He was in a ‘bad place’ and it happened out of the blue. He apologizes and says that he can’t stand her. She looks at him and asks him if he wants another lager.
Back at the pub…. Fiz gets a phone call from John at the Rovers during Liz’s party. She tells him that he really didn’t have to call from his mum’s. The line falls dead. Fiz asks Sally if she has missed anything. Sally tells her that Carla has revealed that she kissed Liam. Sally adds: “Can you imagine if you caught your John kissing someone else?” Fiz smiled: “I’m just grateful I am with someone who is familiar the word faithful.”
Rosie gets ready for her weekend away with John. She tells her mum that she is sorry they had to cancel her birthday meal in order for her to have a sleepover with her mates. Sally tells her that she will re-book her birthday meal at another restaurant.
Later on in the hotel, Rosie dressed in a black lace nightie sits on the bed with John. He tells her, “ “If I was wearing my glasses now they’d be steaming up!” She sees that she is getting a gift from him and sees that it is a book. ‘Shoot All The Blue Jays You Want If You Can Hit ‘Em But Remember To Kill A Mockingbird Is A Sin.”
He tells her it was the best book he had ever read. She looks thrilled.
She looks at him and says – “John? Just kiss me!”
