Scene: Rovers Return.
Camera films Steve MacDonald walking in (having sold the pub and deciding to travel).
Barmaid: “Alrite Steve, been a while.”
Steve: “Alrite Carla. What you doin’ workin’ behind there?”
Carla: “There’s been some very big changes since you were last here.”
Steve: “I can see” (Looking around the bar, Tina’s name is now on the Door.)
Enter Ken & Deidre Barlow
Ken: “Hello Steve, how are you. When did you get back?”
Steve: “well, I just back an I wish I never leave”
Deidre: “Where’d you go?”
Steve: ”I was there for 2 weeks, so how come I never tell now. Yes, I’d stay an’ be a tourist but i can’t take the gunplay – after living in Moss Side it wouldn’t make me happy”
Still stood at the bar, Ken looks around with an arch of his eyebrow.
Ken: “So you’ve seen the changes.”
Steve: “VERY INTERESTING – “What noise does a snake make Alfie?””
Alfie is stood at the bar. Looking like a young George Best, he slowly finishes his Guinness and turns to Ken.
