At Maria’s, the mom-to-be would like just be a mom already. She tells Tony that she heard from Eileen that it was long walk that brought her Todd on. Tony replies that was probably an old wives tale and there’s nothing to it and there is no irony inherent in this statement. Eileen is neither old nor a wife. Tony, continuing his new “office casual” look goes off to the office.
There, he finds that Janice had, prior to her being fired from the PA job, scheduled a meeting with some client on Monday. He gets angry with Luke, saying that his meetings had to be cancelled until after the baby was born.
“Yeah, I can see paternity leave,” says Luke. “But I’m flashing back to that episode of the Office when Jim explained that Michael will be related to Jan’s baby through delusion. Besides, we need you for this meeting.”
They also argue a bit about bringing Rosie in as an investor and the wisdom thereof.
“She’s got lots of things going for her,” Luke protests.
“Dude you are using her to pay the VAT,” Tony replies.
Then Rosie comes in and pretty much confirms their suspicions. She announces to the factory girls that she is now their boss and expects to be called “Miss Webster” from now on. “Ms” has yet to catch on in Weatherfield. The girls grumble while Sally smugs.
That’s about all Tony can take so he decides to take the day off and take Maria for that walk. In what looks like Wales.
As they walk along the beach, Tony quotes from the Walrus and The Carpenter. Maria says it was sad how they tricked the oysters.
“They were hungry,” Tony explains. “They did what they had to do. Some things you can never undo.”
“That sounds like something someone says when it sounds like they’re referring to one thing, but really, are referring to another thing!”
They talk some more about Carla and things and Tony goes chasing after Ozzy.
Suddenly, Maria grips her belly and falls to her knees. The baby is coming!
“MARIA!” Tony cries as he goes running toward her.
Hot Buttered Love
Kevin’s clandestine phone call to Molly is interrupted by Sally who reminds him of Ben’s swim meet. He begs off, claiming extra work at the garage. She also tells him that he needs to see Molly about some missing invoices.
Later at the garage, Kevin is being told by Sally about Rosie’s shares in Underworld but Kevin just can’t make himself care. She tells him they’ll be home by 9:00pm as they’ll likely go out for pizza afterward.
Ty offers Kevin to come over to his place for his tea.
“I’m sure Molly would love to dish something up for you. There is no irony inherent in this statement whatsoever!”
“What? I don’t want to sleep with her! I mean, no, thanks though.”
Later he goes to Dev’s shop to see Molly, and patiently waits for Dev and Umed to get to the Costco. When they leave Molly locks the door. They start flirting by the butter as Molly lists the different varieties they offer: salted, unsalted, half-salted, whipped, cultured, clarified, Ghee, I Can’t Believe It’s Not…
Then they kiss, briefly, as Umed and Dev are once again banging on the door. Kevin gets her to make plans to see him later.
Steve doesn’t like Becky texting Slug/Neil as they’ve “done stuff”.
Liz is pulling pints at Andy’s pub in Spain. Steve declares that to be cheating on your own pub. Lloyd hopes that’s all she’s cheating on.
Eileen does the walk of shame back to her place, and lets Sean and Jason know that her big night with Jesse didn’t go as planned when his parents came hom early from Bingo as his mum forgot her favourite bingo dabber.
Sean is trying to lose weight but can’t stop eating bacon.
Jason and Tina are still dating, if you call a take-out on Jason’s couch “dating.” Jason is also afraid of cows. At least it’s not sheep, like Gaz on Two Pints of Lager. Bleating fleecy bastards.
David sends flowers to Tina, but with no card so Tina thinks they’re from Jason. He has a cunning plan, m’lord.
