Gail tells Brian she knew when they married again that it would never work. Brian tells her to get out if she wants to go; he's not letting her take Nicky away from him - she's a rotten mother and a hard, selfish bitch. Sandra apologises to Ken for rowing with him. The authorities say Jason can't be left on his own. Brian leaves a disco with a girl. She is bothered by youths, he tries to help her and is stabbed. They run off before Brian dies on the ground.

Notable dialogueEdit

Gail Tilsley: "It was nothing to do with him. It was to do with me... marrying too young, growing up afterwards. Realising there was never enough between us to spend the rest of our lives together".
Brian Tilsley: "It's too good for me, right? Eh? Too smart for me, too ambitious. All that rubbish about you wanting to start your own business."
Gail Tilsley: "Why was it rubbish? What was wrong with me having my own identity? You couldn't cope with that could you? You're like summat out of the dark ages. A woman should know her place, she's all right in the bedroom, in the kitchen and that's it."


Gail Tilsley: "All I wanted was a home, husband and kids. I knew what I didn't want... I didn't want to end up like me mam, dragging up a family on her own. And now look at me."
