It's Steve's thirtieth birthday and he insists he doesn't want to celebrate it. Karen's unimpressed when he opens a card which reads "Happy Birthday Daddy, Lots Of Love Amy xxx". He throws it in the bin. Steve's amused when he sees the posters of himself as a baby around the cab office. Sally apologises for overstepping the mark at the garage and suggests to Kevin they go out for a meal. Kevin's pleased. Rita realises she's forgotten to enclose Sally's garage flyers in with the papers so pays David £10 to deliver them by hand. David shoves them in a bin. Audrey's delighted to see her picture in the Gazette. Betty, Blanche and Emily are appalled that the council is spending £45,000 on a fountain and vow to do something about it. Les tells Cilla in no uncertain terms that he doesn't want her any more, she must get out of the house and that he's back with Janice. Cilla turns on the charm but Les isn't taken in. Karen prepares Steve's birthday surprise consisting of oysters, champagne and smoked salmon. When he doesn't show up she storms round to the Rovers and is incensed to find him drinking with Liz, Dev and Patrick. Kevin's hoping for a romantic evening and is furious when he gets called out to Eccles on a breakdown and Sally insists the business must come first. Les, Kirk, Janice and Leanne let themselves into No.5 and carry an unsuspecting Cilla in her chair, out on to the street and dump her there. Cilla's fuming, especially when a smiling Rita walks past and says "Goodnight, Cilla".
