After the nasty car crash, it’s Tyrone to first awake. He sees a bleeding and unconscious Molly and goes to search for his mobile. It would appear that Molly had cushioned Tyrone’s fall in the crash, if things weren’t bad enough. Tyrone races into the country road looking for his phone and manages to flag down a car and the driver phones for rescue. Meanwhile, Molly awakens and calls for Tyrone who returns to tell her help’s on it’s way. Molly fades back into unconsciousness as Tyrone begs her to stay awake. Kevin, parked not to far away, hears sirens and follows the ambulance. The fire trucks arrive and start to get Molly out of the vehicle as Kevin drives up and runs to the scene. He’s stopped by the police who holds him back but Kev yells to Ty, who is surprised to see him there. As they’re trying to get Molly out of the car basically using the jaws of life she worries about whether or not her baby is okay. Molly’s out and Ty runs to her side as she’s swaddled in rescue foam to be taken to the hospital. Kev tells them he’ll follow the ambulance in the truck. Molly seems shocked to see Kevin there. Kevin couldn’t look more troubled, as he even sheds a tear as the ambulance drives away with Tyrone, Molly and her baby inside. Was he shedding a tear for Molly or what could be his baby?
In the hospital, Molly explains to the doctor what happened. Tyrone goes to get himself checked out while Molly is examined by an orthopaedic surgeon. Kevin finds Tyrone and asks about Molly but they won’t tell him anything or let him see her. Tyrone is worried that something might happen to the baby and Kevin does nothing to console him. He asks Kevin how he got to the crash so quickly and Kev admits that he was looking for him since he knew the brakes weren’t good on that car. Tyrone loses it since his wife and baby were in danger because Kev hadn’t fixed the brakes. Tyrone points out that Kev’s been acting weird for days now and he should never have trusted him. Finally! Saved by the doctor, as Tyrone can see Molly now and answer his questions. The doctor tells him they’re not 100% certain everything is okay with Molly and the baby yet – they’ll just have to be patient and keep their fingers crossed. Always a good medical treatment – the old finger cross.
At the Streetcars office, Lloyd is wittering on the phone about ketchup stinking the cabs up when Cheryl walks in and up to the docket. He notices her there and drops all. Cheryl apologizes him to him for the way she acted towards him at her club. She asks if she can put his number in her phone since it’s about time she had the number of a decent bloke. By decent bloke, does she mean the man who currently has a woman living with him under the pretence that they’re an item? Cheryl wonders if Lloyd judges her for her occupation, but Lloyd does nothing of the sort telling her he could have been a stripper. Puh-lease. As soon as Lloyd and Cheryl get close Theresa pops her head in for a look about. Lloyd introduces Theresa as “Theresa” and she adds “my girrrrrlfriend.” Awkward moment ensues. Cheryl might want to retract her earlier statement about Lloyd being a decent bloke right about now. Cheryl hears the first cab come in and gets out of that office like a bat out of hell. When she leaves, Theresa immediately knows that Cheryl’s a slapper and wonders if she’s off to meet her pimp. Of course Theresa would be able to spot that. Theresa asks Lloyd to buy her some cans and she’ll take him places he’s never dreamed of. Nope, more like the stuff nightmares are made of I’d say judging by the look on Lloyd’s face.
Sophie’s dressed in her Rosie-Attire and goes to Dev’s to buy a load of crisps with a bad attitude, as per usual these days. Sunita sees that one of the packets is an old favourite and suggest that her and Sophie share it – on the house. During their junk food nosh, Sophie asks Sunita if she can remember the first time she kissed someone she really liked. Sunita says she was five and the boy, Barry Johnson, stuck out his tongue and pulled her hair. She then asks Sunita how she knows if she’s in love. Sunita has no idea. Sophie wants to know what will make it better. Once again, Sunita has no clue. Sunita tells her that if this first “boy” doesn’t like her, another one probably does. Sophie tells her there is – Lee. Sophie thinks she’s just alright and she might have ruined it with him last time. Sunita tells her that if it’s right, then it’s feels right.

- Sophie’s rotten little “poor me” attitude as of late. Moody teenager or what?
- Sunita quick to call Dev’s shop HER shop. She just moved right on in there, didn’t she?
