Mike confides to Mark that he wants to stay active so that Linda won't see him as an invalid and thus leave him. Ken is given a job as a columnist on the Gazette. Curly realises how dangerous Emma's job is after seeing her in action with the burglars. He asks her to consider changing her job but she refuses. Gary plucks up the courage to ask Paula out for dinner. The paper pays for them to go to a posh restaurant. They enjoy each other's company, with her telling him that she really likes him. Mark and Linda acknowledge their love for each other. She breaks down when he tells her that he has to leave because he loves her too much. Tyrone stuns Maria by admitting he's a virgin and saying that he wants to wait until he's married before having sex.
