Update- Friday, November 9, 2007- If You Don't Have Anything Nice to Say...
The episode could be summarised as: Michelle is bitchy about Tracy. Steve is bitchy about Sunny. Sean is bitchy to Sunny. Cilla is bitchy about Fiz. Eileen and Sarah are bitchy about Jason. Jason, Gail and Sarah are bitchy about Eileen. Norris is bitchy about Rita. The Connors are bitchy about each other. The end.
But, here are the gorey details:
The Grimshaws and Platts Bitch
Jason is panicked looking for Holly. He goes to Sarah's, just as Sarah is complaining about his inability to take care of Holly. When he tells Sarah and Gail that Holly has disappeared, they go with him to his house, and tell him to phone 999. As he is dialling the number, Eileen strolls in, with Holly in her arms. Gail and Sarah are annoyed that she left without a note. She justifies herself by saying that Jason should have not fallen asleep with Holly there. Really, that is just silly. Holly was in her stroller and nothing could happen to her. Eileen is, as Steve said, getting revenge. Gail and Sarah leave, annoyed. Jason too is annoyed, but Eileen is not apologetic, and gives him a lecture about taking care of his daughter.
Later, Jason tells Violet what Eileen did and Violet is unimpressed. Again, Eileen says that Jason has to become more responsible, and that she did the right thing. After she leaves, Violet says to Jason that he must have been petrified but he says no, he was hoping that something had happened to Holly.
In the evening, when Eileen has gone off to the Rover's, Jason phones Social Services, and wants to report a neglected child. He gives Holly's name, and his own address. It appears Eileen's little revenge plot will bite her in the butt.
Cilla's Bitchiness (A.KA. Cilla's Natural State)
Cilla complains about the colour Less is painting the door, though she picked out the colour herself. Chesney comes in for a some telly, and a pizza.
Later, Fiz comes by looking for Chesney. Cilla says that Chesney is not there. When Fiz leaves, Chesney emerges from his hiding place. Oh Chesney, bought off with a cheese and tomato pizza.
After Chesney finishes the pizza, he goes back to Fiz', and reluctantly eats the good meal she has made for him.
Michelle and Steve Bitch
Steve runs into Tracy and suddenly is sweet on her, asking her out. Tracy falls for it.
Meanwhile, Michelle decides she wants to give Sunny an extra-special night in.
Later, at the Rover's, Steve and Michelle spend their time taking swipes at Sunny and Tracy, respectively. Michelle is more successful in her nastiness, but then, Tracy is an easier target. After much catiness, Michelle asks Sean if he can cover for her. He agrees, but tells her to tell Sunny that the only person Sean would do this for is Sunny. Michelle is puzzled, but agrees. Sunny pretends to be puzzled. They leave arm in arm.
Steve and Tracy stay behind at the Rover's, and Tracy realizes that Steve may not be genuine in his professed affection for her. She asks him if he is trying to make Michelle jealous. He denies it. She suggests going out on the town, and he reluctantly agrees.
Michelle and Sunny are back at her flat, kissing, when Michelle decides to talk about Tracy. Perhaps Sunny is not all that clever, as he doesn't clue in that maybe Michelle is jealous. Michelle puts everyone out of her mind, and they continue to kiss.
Norris is annoyed at Rita for drinking so much, and even more irate when Doreen breezes into the Rover's and gets him to get drinks for she and Rita.
Carla and Paul bitch at each other
