It's little Tommy's birthday and Des takes him to McDonalds for
his burger and fries and guess who he sees working in McDonalds?
Steph! His wife (or is it ex-wife, can't remember). She is pregnant!
At first she thinks Tommy is Des' son and they exchange pleasantries
before Des leaves. Steph slips a napkin to Des which has her telephone
number on it. Jack and Vera hold a birthday party for Tommy in
Des' back garden, and Des sneaks in to the house to ring Stephanie
and invites her over to his house. He waits in for her the following
evening but she doesn't arrive. Maxine calls by to see Des and
they end up going to the Rovers together for a drink, and then
the episode ended when they went back to Des' house for a "coffee"
and you saw them both going upstairs together.......
Jack and Vera are thinking of buying Des' house. When Mavis finds
out who her next door neighbours could be, she isn't happy at
all, espcially when Des tells her that Vera has been measuring
the walls for stone cladding!
Don and Josie are having a hard time together. Don is set on winning
back the house from Nick, convinced that Ivy didn't leave the
house to him for selfish reasons only. Josie can't take any more
of Don wanting to get even with Ivy when their own relationship
is more important to her. Don takes Nicky to a football match
and they seem to be getting on quite well until they come back
to the house and argue, Nicky walks out, taking with him all of
his belongings which Don had packed into a box for him.
The builders are still working at Emily's house and Percy is more
than happy living with Curly, who in turn appreciates the home
cooked food and company that Percy provides. Percy: "Some
people round here call me an old fogey" Curly: "Yes,
and some call me a young fogey so we're suited to each other".
Percy decides that Curly needs a girlfriend and goes to Firman's
Freezers to chat up one of the sales assistants with a view to
inviting her round to Curly's house for a meal. Unfortunately
the poor girl thinks that Percy is a dirty old man and reports
him to Curly. The girl also makes a comment about the calendar
that Curly has on his wall, it's stuck at Miss February (which
is Raquel's picture) when it's now September, and she calls Racquel
a bimbo. When Curly tells her that the bimbo used to be his fiancee,
the girl (sorry, can't remember her name) is most upset and calls
round to Curly's house later that evening to apologise to him.
He takes her for a drink in the Rovers, where she tells him that
she likes stargazing and is in awe when he tells her that he has
a telescope in his loft.
Jim has his vasectomy.
Leo Firman asks Racquel out on a date but she turns him down,
as she thinks it may be a little bit insensitive to Curly if she
goes out with his boss.
As you may know, Coronation Street is now sponsored by a pet food
manufacturer, Pedigree Chum. It appears that the sponsorship started
this week as there was a dog in the opening credits and Betty
Turpin now has a cat called Marmaduke. Betty takes Marmaduke to
the vets and when she gets back to her house, she has been burgled.
She calls Billy Williams who helps her and offers to stay overnight
to be with her as she is still very nervous.
