Steve and Karen bump into each other - neither knows what to say. Independently they admit to their friends they still love each other. It is Roy and Hayley's fourth wedding anniversary. He buys her a bracelet with tulips on it and she buys him driving lessons which Roy secretly dreads. Bev thinks Fred fancies her and is worried he might propose. Peter tells Shelley that Dev thinks Tracy is good in bed but not marriage material. Shelley is worried as she knows Tracy is expecting Dev to propose. Todd insists on talking to Gail. At first Gail refuses to listen but gradually Todd wins her round. Gail invites him for tea. Sarah is delighted when Gail apologises for flying off the handle. She says they can still see each other but they must do plenty of revision. Tony Stewart and Jason chat in the Rovers about Jason's new job. Bev holds forth at the bar about the different types of men and how you can categorise them by their drinks. Maria scowls at her in the background. Bev bets she can get the next man to walk into the pub to kiss her. It's Roy! Jason has a huge row with Eileen - he calls her a whore and she slaps him. He accuses Eileen of never giving Tony a chance. He makes her admit that Tony did once propose to her. Eileen tries to make Jason see what a lousy father Tony would have been. Jason gets his things and storms out. Eileen breaks down - she's worried that she's lost her son to Tony.
