In Sally’s kitchen, Molly is criticizing Sally for taking a wage from the garage. Sally points out that she does the books, and other stuff. Molly says that takes only a couple of hours every now and then. (FYI Molly…no, it sucks and it takes hours.) Molly thinks it’s unfair to Tyrone. Kevin chimes in then, saying Tyrone is a proper partner. And that the running of the business will be changed to reflect that.
It is Easter weekend, and also Darryl’s birthday. Dev and Tara have gotten Darryl what looks like a fairly posh watch, which Tara saved up for weeks to buy. Haaaaaaaaa ha ha ha. Bwaaaaaa ha ha ha ha….hee. Hee. Amber promises Darryl his gift “later.”
In the Barlow’s backyard, Peter is telling Simon that he built the rabbit hutch. Emily wanders by, offering Simon some chocolate Easter eggs. She invites them to a pet blessing and Easter egg hunt Sunday at the Church.
David sort of sneaks up on Tina outside the Kabin. He confesses that Martin doesn’t want much to do with him, as Martin has his new family now. Nor does Gail want much to do with him (Guess that Oedipal obsession is kinda going over his head, but whatev). In fact, David figures, the only hope, future and companion he needs or wants is Tina. Tina’s like, don’t go there. She says if David cares about her, he should leave her alone. David slams back into the house, all nasty and crappy after Tina blew him off. He mouths off at Joe and then apologizes.
Peter wants to know from Ken where he can get a bunk-bed. Ken offers to look online. Peter says he wants a good one. “Oh,” says Ken, “in that case I won’t look under kids-beds-deathtraps.com.” LOL Kenneth made a cyber-funny. Peter also wonders if Ken will babysit so Peter can go apologize to Michelle for being an edgy, bitchy, narky date.
Peter is standing outside Maria’s / Michelle’s with one of those over-the-top-smashing bouquets of flowers that are not-from-Dev’s, and some chocolates. There is no answer.
Jason is in the Rovers’, soliciting support for the half-marathon he is running, so the Weatherfield hospital can expand it’s car-park. He tries to recruit Luke Strong. Or obtain sponsorship. Julie, who was sitting with Eileen and Pauline, spies Jason at the bar and whisks over to get drinks. Eileen starts probing Pauline again about the P.E. Teacher that Eileen believes knocked Pauline up. Pauline doesn’t want to talk about it.
Tina can’t support the half-marathon. She’s skint. Jason hits up Gary to run. David comes into the Rovers just then, and Tina tells him to go kick off, which I thought was a tad rude. David goes on to say he’s sorry, and that if there is any way back for them, he will do whatever it takes. He leaves, and Gary calls him a poncey loser or something similar.
Jason hits up Kevin for sponsorship. Kev is a bit miffed he’s not asked to run. Kevin doesn’t get why Tyrone was asked to run when Ty looks like a danish and Kev is fit.
Julie says she’ll sponsor Jason, but this involves feeling his legs and pinching his tush to see how fast he can probably run. Eileen watches this with some amusement, but Pauline looks horrified and huffs off.
David goes into the Kebab Shop, reporting to Amber and Darryl that “Mission Macintyre” is progressing nicely.
At the Platt’s, Joe is telling Tina what Gary needs to do for the rest of the day. She takes his keys, and assures Joe that nothing will EVER go anywhere with David. Tina goes outside to meet Gary and can’t get the van doors open because they’re stuck. They pop open and she falls backward into Gary’s arms as David watches from across the street.
Luke and Michelle are at the bar, having a drink and a chat. Michelle has DVD night lined up with Maria. Peter comes in, and is twitchy and nasty, saying Michelle’s a fast mover, as he assumes she’s picked up Luke. He says that he’d bought her some flowers to say sorry, but they’re now in the bin. Don’t know what that says, she can work it out. Michelle can barely follow this rant.
Peter goes on to say he thought Michelle would understand, with Simon in the hospital and everything. And the shop will be finished soon and her job is still waiting, that is, if she still wants it. And storms out.
He goes back to the Barlows and is fingering the whiskey decanter when Ken comes in. Peter reports that Michelle is sniffing around the bloke from the factory. Peter figures that Ken is lucky to have Deirdre. And wonders when he will find his Deirdre. While Ken wonders where he can park Deirdre.
