Martin points out to Nick that he thinks everything around him is boring. Martin suggests to Gail that they think again about Canada as it might give Nick the excitement he needs. Sally looks after the factory all day and lays into Tricia when she turns up late, accusing her of trying it on whilst Mike's away. Norris tells Alf that the council and Square Dealers have decided that he is the man to head Weatherfield's Millennium. Alf is stunned and thrilled. Tricia is furious when Sally refuses to let her do overtime at time-and-a-half as she was late in. Sally is pleased to see the girls starting to treat her like the boss. Martin tells Stephen they'd like to go to Canada as they want to interest Nick and stop him running away again. Carol Palmer brings a framed photograph of Jeff for Becky. Rather than keeping it by her bed, Becky puts it on top of the TV in the lounge. Claire tells Des that Jeff wouldn't have wanted to be on top of the TV as he always told her that if he died she should enjoy her life. Stephen arranges for the Platts to go to Canada but tells them that they'll have to leave within the week.
