Fred is exhausted as he is getting no sleep because of Eve's snoring. Eileen is thrilled with her Christmas bonus from Steve. Tyrone is unsure whether to continue clocking cars, but is persuaded by Karl Harper offering him an extra £20 per car. Maxine has a scan and Ashley gets really excited thinking he can see limbs already. Fred lies to Eve that she has stopped snoring. Janice tells Les that she and Dennis are moving to Sheffield at New Year and Les is very down about it. Sam strips at the Underworld Christmas party, much to Toyah's disapproval. Roy and Hayley decide to do Christmas dinners at the café. Vik agrees to do business with Karl Harper without discussing it with Steve. Charlie and Matt decide only to spend £5 on each other's presents and donate the rest to Roy and Hayley's Christmas dinners at the café. They also agree to help out. The factory girls start arguing about the prowess of their men and drag them all out of the pub to compare muscles. Steve doesn't seem to mind, but Vik refuses and is mobbed. Terry returns to the Street and into the Duckworths' house through the back door while Fiz and Tyrone are upstairs.
