Poster Children for Family Values
When, Sophie tells Sally and Kevin that Rosie didn’t come home last night, Sally is pleased as it likely means she spent the night with Luke. This is great because Sally thinks he’s a great catch who will improve Rosie’s financial and social standings while Kevin thinks he’s Martin Platt 2.0. And, as we find out, Rosie did in fact sleep with Luke as we find them together at Luke’s place
When Rosie gets home Kevin tries to confront her but she deflects him, calling him her stalker. When asked if she spent the night with Luke, Sally interjects that it’s none of their business. She says she has a business meeting with him later to discuss buying shares in Underworld. Kevin says that he’s just after her money but she counters that it wasn’t her money he was after last night. Um, yeah, it’s your money he’s after.
Kevin says “It’s wrong to have an affair with your boss.” Yes, isn’t it, Sally?
Kevin asks Sally if it’s shares she’s buying or a place in Luke’s bed. But Sally smirks to herself, admiring her daughter’s ambition.
At the factory, Sally engages Luke in what is likely the most uncomfortable conversation he’s ever had at work by asking him if his night with her daughter would lead to a relationship.
“Well, I didn’t intend for last night to end as it did,” he says.
“Are you happy that it did?” Sally asks, adding, “Did my daughter satisfy you in the ways that you preferred, in a such a way as would lead to a longer term thing?”
Then, Rosie comes in for her Big Important Business meeting with Luke. The factory girls start giving her a hard time over her absences but she tells them that the only way she’s coming back to Underworld is as their boss. They push Sally for details but she’s sworn to secrecy.
Afterward, Kevin meets Luke in the street and growls in his face.
At the Dobbs’ Molly is still mad at Tyrone over his behaviour re- Connie. She also goes out for a run and on the way back, waves to Kevin, who pointedly ignores her. Back at her place, she apologizes to Jack for Ty’s being a div and hopes that Jack doesn’t move out.
Tyrone continues to warn Jack about Connie.
“She’s using you!” he says.
“For what? Me flamin’ body! Grow up, son!” Jack retorts.
Later when Molly asks Kevin, who’s been short with just about everyone today, about why he didn’t show for their run, he claimed a bad back. Sally arrives long enough to try to intimidate Molly with her knowledge of abbreviations.
Kevin is still short-tempered with Molly and when she continues to press him on the issue, he admits that he cannot stop thinking about her. He says when they go running and he just wants to jump her bones. Oh, Kevin with smooth talk like that how can any lady resist? Molly slaps him and tells him to stay away from her. But was she smiling to herself as she left the garage?
Steve finds out that Slug has been stopping by to see Becky. When Becky goes to town, he asks Hayley what she knows about him.
“Slug! He’s evil! She needs to stay away from him!” You’ll recall the last time he came to town, the Morris Minor got taken for a joyride.
When Steve confronts Becky with his suspicion that she went to see him, she throws a bag at him and tells him she went to town to get his birthday present.
