It's the day of the wedding and Gail and Richard start getting ready. Rosie tells Sally to get a proper job after Sally tells the girls that she has to work that morning. Karen wants to buy a designer bookshelf. Steve jokes that she needs some books to put on it first. Sally and Kevin decide to go to the wedding together. Richard tells Nick to report the mugging so he can make a claim on his insurance. Nick tells Sarah that it was girls who mugged him. Geena puts down Shelley's management of the Rovers. Maria arrives at No.8 to help with the hair for the wedding. After Roger Hinde makes a comment about David's attitude, David pays him back by stealing Gail's wedding ring from Roger's pocket. Richard is told that the wedding cars are not coming because his cheque bounced. However, Archie saves the day when he organises four limos for them. Karen finds out that a bail hostel is being built next to her new flat block. Les takes Norris to the Commonwealth Games but they break down en route.

Notable dialogueEdit

Norris Cole: "I thought the opening ceremony couldn't be surpassed but the first day of competition....? When the mighty athlete hurled the hammer there was a hush, a hush of respect all over the stadium then, as the metal thudded into the ground.... why, it was as if the heavens themselves had opened, such was the mighty roar! I never realised a woman could throw something that heavy that far."
Rita Sullivan: "You'd be surprised what we can throw if we're irritated enough, Norris."
