Episode Summary

Episode Eighteen
Brains pushes Marty hard for the Cross Country, making him wear gum boots and a tire tied round his waist. Vinnie tells Tam he is fine if she wants to talk to another guy but he doesn't want her cheating on him. Trevor apologises to Carol and tells her he thinks she's fantastic, she forgives him. Mr Boyd asks Brains if he can help with Marty's training, Brains reluctantly agrees, but he seems to be a help to Marty. Mick tells Tam he has written some poems for the show but he is too embarrassed to show anyone, he says he'll show her if she agrees to meet up with him, she agrees. Steve spots Harry driving through town and tries to follow but bangs into Mr Boyd and loses him. Marty puts everything into his training and all the gang help to keep his spirits up, even Mr Boyd. At the sports day Marty is stunned to see his dad has turned up, when Marty falls at the starting line Mr Summers has a go about him infuriating Brains. It seems Mick's poetry is nothing more than a set up between him and Miranda as Tam is sitting on a hill with Mick listening to his pathetic poem, when Miranda collars Vinnie at the refreshment stand, telling him Tam is cheating on him, she then shows Vinnie Tam and Mick sitting together, Mick spots them and hugs Tam for listening to his poem, Vinnie thinks Tam is cheating with Mick and is hurt, there plan has worked. Steve manages to crack the numbers Vinnie got from the yard and rushes to the sports day to tell Tam. Vinnie beats Mick up who is secretly thrilled and says he really fancies Tam and she likes him. It looks like Marty is about to win his race, as he heads for the finish line in the lead, only he daydreams what it would be like to win and believes he already has, the adoration he gets and most importantly his fathers acceptance, when he is brought back to reality he comes third when two other runners pass him he looks at the stand and his dad has gone. At home Mr Summers tells Marty the effort he put in was what counted and he proudly puts Marty's little trophy with the rest, telling him he is proud of him. Vinnie turns up at the youth centre with his arm round Miranda, saying he is going ice skating, Tam is speechless. While Steve watches out at the docks he sees Ellis and Spider.moreless
