Wendy tries to help Ken find a job. Martin jumps onto the train with Gail and argues with her about the abortion. Gail accuses Martin of trying to force her to do what he wants. He says he'll go to the clinic with her if he has to but has enough of her attitude and gets off at Broad Green. Deirdre is relieved when Ken tells her the fight wasn't about her. She doesn't like her marriage problems being made public and asks him to stay away from the Street unless he's picking up Tracy. Ken is hurt but agrees. Kevin makes up with Sally with chocolates.
