Big Dick is encouraged to leave the pub by girlfriend Gina so her lover Fred can come round and ‘fix the coffee machine’. Later on Fred and Big Dick go for a drive and Fred is disturbed by Big Dick’s impassioned speech about how much he loves Gina and what he would do if anything were to disrupt that.
Meanwhile, Simpkins and Candi are celebrating Jeff King Day (Jeff King apparently founded Newtown in 2006). Candi is feeling upset by Eliza’s impregnation by Reg and Simpkins counsels her to follow her heart and do something for herself. Candi decides she is going to remodel Coventry on Newtown, like a modern day Jeff King.
Reg and Pablo are blissfully bonding, they have moved in together, as in love as they are, and move their relationship on to the physical…several times. But their paradise comes to an end when Eliza appears at the door and eventually tells Reg he is the father of her unborn twins. Pablo is not impressed and leaves them to it. Reg cannot handle the shock and makes a run for it.
