As Liz and Lloyd watch reality TV, Steve declares he’s off to see Becky to make her see sense. This marginally impresses Liz who asks Lloyd if he would ever fight for her.
“Hrmrphrmr,” he declares with affection. He’s more animated later when a friend calls to offer a last minute jaunt to Ibiza which, we assume, will not include Liz.
At the café, Steve doesn’t have much luck talking to Becky so he asks her to meet him at that Chinese restaurant she mentioned once.
She’s reluctant but Hayley asks her where she sees herself in five years, living in the spare room or settled down with a good man like Steve. She admits that she wouldn’t mind getting her mouth around those Schweddy prawn balls. Say, where did we see Becky four years ago? It was the first time we saw her. She was in the cop shop, getting arrested for shoplifting. I’d say she’s done alright so far.
Anyway, Steve’s in the restaurant waiting for Becky to turn up when Lloyd and Liz show up because sometimes Corrie is a bit of a sit-com.
Soon enough, Becky shows up and doesn’t see Liz and Lloyd right away as they’re in the loo (not together, I assume). She orders whiskey and cider and Steve tells her that he’s packed a bag for her as he wants to leave for the Maldives tonight. She considers it and then sees Liz and Lloyd. “Oh,” she says. “Batman brought Robin. And Wonder Woman too!”
Well that’s gone and put Becky in a mood as she decides to 1) order the most expensive thing on the menu (lobster and soft-shelled crab), 2) get in a row with Liz, 3) throw the soft-shelled crab at Liz’s breasts, 4) get in a fight with Liz, and 5) get thrown out of the restaurant.
Steve, who’s gotten into a fight of his own with Lloyd over some ungentlemanly things he said about Becky, tries to run after her but he has to stay and pay the bill.
When he gets back to the Rovers, he finds Becky outside and she says the trip to the Maldives can’t be a honeymoon as they’re not yet married. But it’s a funny moon, just like the one out tonight. Soon enough all is well between them and Hayley arrives in the Woody and carts them off to the airport and their romantic vacation.
