At the Websters’, Sally is wondering how much wine they should get for her birthday part, to which only decent, middle-class folk like Ben’s parents are invited. She wants to get enough so that they don’t think they’re stingy but not so much that they think they’re drunks.
“What do you think, Kevin?”
“Molly’s boobs…I mean…sure, whatever.”
At the garage, a posh lady arrives with slashed tires on her SUV. A distracted Kevin, who’s watching Tyrone and Molly canoodle on the doorstep, tells her to come back at 2:00pm. Forced by fate to throw herself upon the mercy of the working classes, she leaves in a huff.
When Tyrone leaves for a bit, Molly comes over to see Kevin when he gets the brilliant idea to take off in the posh lady’s SUV. They arrive under a bridge and quickly go straight to making out. Unseemly but I guess it’s roomier than a Chevette.
Back in the garage, the posh lady has returned for her car, as she needed to get some papers. Ty thinks Kevin is probably taking it for a test drive. She is not best pleased when Ty is unable to get him on the mobile.
Things heat up quickly, although Molly gets a mild disappointment when she confuses a stick shift with something else. Before it can go too far, they are interrupted by a cop.
They head back to the garage and Kevin boots Molly out a block from their street.
When he gets back, the posh lady calls him and Ty stupid so he angrily tells her to take her flash car and get lost. Frustrated much, Kevin?
Later, he goes to the shop to see Molly and apologize. He suggests a night in a hotel. It’s only his wife’s birthday so really, nothing planned. She tells if they do this, there’s no going back.
“I don’t want to go back,” he says. Because being a likeable character gets you nowhere, apparently.
And this happened:
- Ted gave David a pep talk about being broken hearted as it happened to him once back before he was gay.
- Jason didn’t get the mortgage as he doesn’t have a 25% down payment, and is a builder with occasional lulls in employment and whose mortgage partner works in a candy shop. Joe suggests they go in the Rovers to see if they can figure something out. Because Joe, who owes thousands to a loan shark and once lived in his van, is really good with money.
- Maria’s got the post-partum going on so Tony is now taking care of wee man while Maria sleeps. He will also be going to a workshop to learn how to breastfeed. You keep thinking, ‘Wow what a nice guy’ but then you remember he murdered wee man’s dad.
- Graeme got Joe his pills but it’s a one-off.
- Pam got Molly to respond to Bill’s Lonely Hearts ad. Hilarity is sure to ensue. This, by the way, is also the plot to “The Pina Colada Song.”
