Audrey finds out that it is too late to pull out of the election. She decides to back Curly's campaign to try and ensure that she doesn't win herself. Desmond Worthing, the other candidate is furious. She hands out Curly's leaflets telling everyone to vote for him. Steve turns up in the pub, goes down on one knee and proposes to Karen in front of the Underworld girls. Gail and Martin are worried about David. They decide that Martin will take David away for the half-term holiday. Ashley produces a sperm sample at home and he and Maxine rush it to the hospital. Karen and the girls decide to double or quits - two days' pay, if she can get Steve to actually marry her within a week. The election takes place and Curly wins. The Returning Officer reads out "Watts, Norman Arthur, Independent - 1,915". Karen tells Steve about the new bet. Steve agrees that they will get married.
