Doing renovations this weekend, so just the highlights, sorry readers.
Claire wonders if Steve and Michelle might want to buy their house.
Audrey seems less than keen on David returning to work at the salon.
Mel is curious/suspicious where Teresa is getting all her money lately.
Steve and Lloyd discuss the joys of fatherhood.
Lloyd broaches the subject of Finlay being his son with Teresa, and is willing to help out, but wants to make it ‘official’ with a DNA test. Teresa tells Lloyd that this would mean going to the courts, which likely means a judge would make Lloyd pay eight years of retroactive child support. Lloyd seems a bit scared by this prospect, and agrees to keep ‘it’ between him and Teresa, before he hands over some more cash so Teresa can buy herelf some booze – I mean buy Finlay some new trainers.
Steve stops in at the bookies to gloat over his win at darts. The conversation touches again on Steve parking his cabs somewhere else besides in front of the turf accountants. Norris walks by with his newspaper trolley/umbrella contraption and scratches the side of Steve’s cab, before he scurries away. Steve sees the scratch and accuses Dan of the damage, while Norris lurks in the background not admitting his wrong doing. Harry and Lloyd both express doubt about who scratched the car. A while later Dan comes in the pub and orders some pork scratchings from Steve, who tells Dan that he won’t be laughing when Steve sends him the bill to paint his car. Harry casts doubt on Dan’s innocence when he brings up the time they clamped one of Steve’s cabs.
Becky gets increasingly touchy feely with Jason, who is getting increasingly uncomfortable with the current state of affairs.
Roy and Eileen discuss Jason and Becky and seem to agree that it is a mostly good thing.
Jason and Bill stop in at the cafe for some food and Becky hangs off Jason like a cheap suit. Norris comes in with the newspaper delivery, and has words with Jason and Bill about how they are carrying on with women in Weatherfield while they both have wives living in Europe. Jason silence in the defence of Becky speaks volumes.
Jason tells Becky that he wants a night in – to sleep – and just looks scared when Becky says goodbye with ‘See you lover.’
Roy counsels patience for Becky, and tells her how Eileen likes her.
Eileen and Jason have a chat about Becky on the sofa, and Eileen tells him to let her down gently now or pay for it later.
