We open with David pulling out of the house and past a young ginger guy as he jumps into Joe’s van.
“Move!” he yells at Joe, showing him the £7000 he was owed (because everyone keeps cash like that lying around). Joe sees the ginger guy coming out of the house with a menacing look on his face and they high tail it out of there.
Back in Weatherfield, Joe tells David that he was stupid to bully that money out of the Windarses as word will get round what kind of workers they are. David tells him that he didn’t want him to go broke and that he’s good for his mum. Joe hands David some of the cash and tells him to go have a night out with Tina.
Afterward, David is recounting, with some embellishment, his tale to Graeme. Meanwhile, Graeme has an elaborate plan for falling in love with local supermodel Agness Deyn involving doing free gardening for her mum.
This is Agness, posing with food she has no intention of eating:
Anyway, David gets round to mentioning the name of the cheapskates: Windass. Graeme goes white.
“They’re bad banditos, senor!”
He explains that while Eddie, the dad with the phony disability, wasn’t so bad, it was his son Gary and Uncle Len that are the bad ‘uns.
And bad ‘uns they are as Gary and Len are driving around town looking for David, even though Len gives Gary a hard time when he learns that the guy who terrorized him was a teenager.
Anyway, they see Joe, who is busy offering Gail a trip on the Cornish Riviera. So much for that £7000 being all accounted for. They hold back on doing anything, reckoning there are too many witnesses.
“He’s laughing now but he won’t have much to laugh about when we’ve finish with him,” Len says, adding, “Because in that, I’m implying the threat of violence, possibly to the point of murder, but without explicitly stating my intentions. The point is that what I have planned for him will be sufficient to spoil his good spirits.”

Dan Mason mad a classy exit when he dumped Kelly, accusing her of being a freeloader, and then took off on vacation promising never to come back. As he left, Kelly threw her white boot at the car.
The reason Kelly is a freeloader is because Tony didn’t give her the $150 he promised so she couldn’t pay the last installment on her vacation, as well just not paying his workers.
