Moley sits in her car, where she must have been all night. She looks around nervously and calls Steve on the mobile which Steve ignores because...
...Steve is waking up next to Kelly with a look that suggests he just remembered the previous evening's events. Steve looks at the camera and says, "That's right. I tapped that!" Well, no. That did not happen. It is actually awkward for both.
Kelly reminds him that she's not in the habit of falling into the beds of random men (pity) but Steve gallantly offers her tea and finds her bra underneath the covers.
At the office, Lloyd wonders where Moley disappeared to. She says she picked up a woman claiming to be fleeing an abusive partner. Lloyd warns her about picking up street fares. Not only are they illegal but she could get hurt or worse if she ever picks up the wrong person. (Legal note - Streetcars is a mini-cab firm and is not allowed to pick up street fares, only pre-arranged fares. Only black cabs can do that.)
On her way the door, out Kelly asks Steve if he could also find her self-respect, that would be grand. The coast is clear and Kelly exits.
On her way, she runs into Norris who somehow missed this salacious bit of gossip. He notes that she's getting an early start to the day. She tells him that the old saying about the early bird catching the worm is true and all.
Later at the office, Steve's story is that he got stuck on an airport run. Lloyd puts two and two together and figures he and Moley have been making up on company time. Steve gives a half-hearted denial.
Later in the street Steve meets up with Kelly to set things right about last night. He explains to her that if it weren't for Moley, he'd consider it but...
Kelly cuts him off. What they did was a dumb thing thanks to alcohol, end of story, she tells him. She says she's upset because of Lloyd and realises that it's him that she wants.
Anyone else think this is a shame as these two would make a great pair? Mind you, it would break Steve's strict rule about exclusively dating lunatics.
Later in the office, Steve sees Moley, also looking knackered (Eileen describes the atmosphere like "Dawn of the Dead.") and presents her with flowers. She says that it's all her fault, really but Steve says that no, it's his fault and that he's been lazy.
As they walk in the street, she tells Steve her story about helping the abused woman. Steve says that's just like her never to put her own needs before anyone else's. Wha? Since when? Oh it's irony because just then, Moley sees the screaming headline in the Weatherfield Gazette:
No, wait. That was the Sun's headline when Pope Benedict XVI took over at the Vatican. What she really saw was:
Roy Rogers and Trigger
Keith runs into Norris to tell him Charlie is discussing the roof situation with the landlord. He's doubtful the landlord will pay anything saying something about getting muck from a horse. Wha?
Chez Tracey and Charlie, Tracey is desperate to know what the deal was that he made with the landlord. Charlie is saying nowt but confirms that all will be revealed by the end of the episode.
Keith later finds "Roy Rogers and Trigger" actually fixing his roof. He goes to gloat about it, the goes off to the Rover's for more gloating. Jason wonders why he's being referred to as that guy from Only Fools and Horses when Charlie explains that Trigger is a horse. He's also remaining mum about his talk with the landlord but he's extra smirky today.
Charlie meets up with Keith in the Rover's and tells him that things went very well indeed between him and the landlord. In fact, he adds, as he buys everyone a drink, he would have paid a little bit more.
Keith is confused. Charlie explains, showing the paperwork: He's bought Number 6 and will be Keith's landlord. But not for very long. He's giving Keith two months notice as of now to get out as he plans to make it a home just for him and Tracey. And that baby.
Tracey is delighted. Deirdre is all ...wha?
