Peter has the shakes and is desperate for a drink. Jim offers him one if he can obtain some chocolate biscuits for him. Michael plans a picnic for Gail. Kirk's next plan to propose to Beth is a romantic meal at No. 5 with Craig helping to prepare the meal, despite the fact he obtained an 'F' grade in food technology. Deirdre is exhausted. Ken is worried about her and Tracy suggests she needs a holiday. David laughs as Michael arrives in his ice cream van to take Gail out, complete with posh picnic as suggested by Eileen. Sophie suggests to Jenna that she stop stressing about Lloyd and Andrea and live her own life. Unable to obtain biscuits, Peter steals Eugene's wine gums. As Gail gives Michael directions to reverse his van, his foot slips on the accelerator and he knocks her over. As Eileen watches on happily, Gail is driven to hospital. Jim refuses the wine gums but gives Peter the drink anyway. Jenna overhears Andrea talking to Neil on the phone about the fresh start she needs. Simon agrees to visit his dad on Monday. Leanne suggests to Ken that he and Deirdre need a break. He agrees. Jenna and Andrea reach a rapport. Jenna tells Lloyd that she's decided to leave and do something with her life. Beth is delighted at the meal complete with cans of lager and toilet roll for serviettes. Eugene finds his sweets missing and Peter drunk. He warns him that he doesn't want to be indebted to Jim. Jenna tells Sophie she's thinking of doing voluntary work overseas and says her goodbyes. Kirk serves Beth paella but she chokes on the meal. She checks the recipe and sees that instead of 1/2 teaspoon of spices he has put in 12. She storms at him that he's useless and the moment to propose is lost again. Gail's twisted ankle is bandaged. David arrives at hospital to pick her up and gleefully points out to Michael that he's passed his curfew and is late home with his tag. Gail worries that he'll be sent back to prison.
