Curly is nervous about going on a date with Emma as he hasn't dated in years. Steve advises Leanne to forget all about Jez being involved with Tony's death as she shouldn't get involved. Fred is appalled to learn Ashley has eaten veggie sausages and determines to stop the rot. Vinny is hostile towards Duggie, annoyed that Natalie prefers his company. Duggie suggests his attitude is alienating her. Vinny tells Natalie he's sick of her giving him the cold shoulder. She accuses him of trying too hard to make their relationship work. She is annoyed when he refuses to drop the fact she slept with Colin. She refuses to apologise any more and tells him there's nothing left to say between them. Sally and Danny set their shop up. Vik tells Steve he can come into the business if he comes up with the money immediately. Emma tries to put Curly at ease as they eat together and chat over their life histories. After Maxine asks him to stand up for her, Ashley warns Fred not to keep on at her over her beliefs and in defiance tells him he is going to be a vegetarian too. Steve asks Jez for an £8,000 loan, saying he'll pay him back quickly. Jez assures him there'll be no rush for the repayment and hands over the money.
