So despite the fact that her mother is battling breast cancer, Rosie thinks that it’s not at all inappropriate to have a boob job. She says that Alfie (the vodka shots guy) thinks it would be good for her “career” and will even lend her the money to do it. This enrages Kevin even more – to the point where Sophie has to get between them. He storms out.
Sally will just have to eat her chicken stew on her own.
And am I the only one who wants Alfie to be this guy:
So Kevin heads off the Rovers where he agrees to get bladdered with Tyrone and Eddie. However, when Kevin is not looking, Eddie notices that the bikini girl being used to advertise bar nuts is Rosie herself. She’s scantily clad on the poster behind the bar, covered only by a generous helping of Ned’s Nuts. So Eddie buys the lot and he and Ty get a good look at her. When Kevin discovers this, he roughs up Eddie pretty hard.
“Ooh,” Eddie winces. “He got me nipple!”
Meanwhile at home, Rosie is telling Sophie how she plans to use her looks to get what she wants in life and how she loves walking into a club and being noticed.
“Like a bunch of old pervs looking at ya?” Sophie asks.
“No, I want better than that.”
Oh, Rosie. The best you’re going to do is find yourself admired by representatives from the firm of Date Rape, Cokington, Cheeseball, and Jag (thank you, 30 Rock!).
When Kevin gets back home, he shows the poster to Rosie who complains, “I don’t even like peanuts.”
There is more arguing and Rosie storms off but Sophie has the good sense to throw out the poster before Sally sees it.
Steve and Kelly are Engaged to Tequila
As Steve and Kelly come back from their bike ride, a curiously morose Becky puts on “The Green, Green Grass of Home” by Tom Jones. Michelle notes she didn’t know she was a Tom Jones fan.
“I’m not,” she says.
It gets a little frosty so Steve and Kelly head upstairs to split a bottle of tequila but they succeed in only getting drunk. Steve tells Kelly that even though she’s a top girl, he’s still in love with Becky.
When she leaves, she plants one on Steve’s cheek so that when Becky comes upstairs, she’ll assume the worst. She does but doesn’t appear to care as they only succeed in rowing some more.
Outside, she holds that black garbage she came home with earlier and looks at some jewelry before tossing it away as she begins to cry.
Joe Is Engaged to Cement Shoes
Joe slinks back to Gail’s where he finally explains that he owes money to loan sharks.
That’s the long and short of it but the scene did contain the line of the night when David offered to put the kettle on for Audrey:
“Oh, forget the kettle, love! See if Gail has any wine.”
And This Happened
George is still pressuring Peter to let him pay to send Simon to private school.
