Just time for a brief outline today, life has gotten in the way again…
Sal wants Kev to turf the Peacocks and their two young children. Kev and Ashley try to behave like adults while the two harpies bitch at each other. Claire has a new plan to ‘do up the house’ with the money they just got, although Ashley seems less than enthralled by the idea – or at staying at his mother-in-law for the next while. The two men share a civilized pint later at The Rovers.
Marcus is thinking about taking a ‘sickie’ but ends up quitting his job. The new plan is for he and Sean to find a more affordable place of their own while Marcus retrains with Sean footing the bill. No doubt this will all end badly.
Becky and Jason are sniffing around each other again, and after she brings him a sauasge butty they end up snogging in the street. Of course Roy wanders by at the exact moment their lips are locked.
Vern and Norris meet up in the street and commiserate over the ‘ruthless selfishness of women’ although they are talking about different women.
Harry overhears the gossip in The Kabin regarding Liz and Vern.
Norris give Rita a hard time about researching apartments in Spain. Rita tells him to get bent and breaks into song:
Senorita Rita, you’ll love her when you meeta.
Girls don’t come much sweeta, then Senorita Rita.
No one would complain, if they made her Queen of Spain. Ole!
You have to love Rita.
Liz and Michelle talk about the break up. Liz knows she did the right thing, but admits she feels a bit guilty. Liz (thankfully) takes down the disturbing wedding photo from the wall in the back room.
Vern comes by to sort out some banking matters. Liz tries to give back her ring but Vern insists she keep it, maybe she could make some ear rings out of it or something. Liz announces she might go to Jersey to visit a friend, and ends up putting Michelle in charge of the pub. (pretty soon no one will be working there any more)
Harry and Clarissa squabble about their divorce in the street. Service as usual. Harry extends his sympathies to Vern, before he makes his way into the pub to ask Liz out for drinks. Liz makes a comment about dancing on Vern’s grave, before giving Harry an earful about how ill timed his approach was.
