The next morning, Stuart is standing at the train station with Martin Brooks, who tells him he had a good time last night, "except for the spitting. I suppose you got lucky." Stuart looks at him with annoyance, prompting a quick change of subject. "Good clubs, though. It must be marvellous doing that all the time," Martin comments. "Do you think?" Stuart asks sarcastically. "Should be good tonight," Martin says, and Stuart ignores him, asking what time his train leaves. "Oh, I'll call and cancel," Martin replies. "I'll tell Ann I've got to work." Stuart then proceeds to go off, perhaps a bit more angrily than a man who's still not out of the closet to his parents should be allowed to. "Cancel. Go out, get pissed, get shagged. Then you can do it again. Then you can do it again. Get shagged every night of your life. Forget your wife, forget your kids. Just don't be a tourist. You either do it or you don't," he says, spitting the words out. "So what's it gonna be -- stayin' or goin'?" Martin looks as embarrassed as he should, and says that his train is at half past. Stuart walks away, throwing a disgusted glance behind him. Ah, Stuart as Social Moralizer -- I didn't think I'd live to see everything, you know.
Nathan is walking through the park with Donna, who is telling him how everybody at school is talking about him never being home and always being dropped off at school, instead of walking there like he used to. "Brilliant!" Nathan says, obviously delighted to be the centre of attention. Luckily, Donna is there to put him back in his place, telling him that if the school finds out, Education Welfare will be on his case. "It happened to Billy Valentine," she says. "They put him in [foster] care. He disappeared; he went to Cardiff and he had real problems." "I've got real problems!" Nathan replies indignantly. Donna laughs. "Oh, like what? Like your mother's been going through your things? Big deal!" she says dismissively. "She knew everything! She's been spying!" Nathan cries. "So? She's your mother -- it's her job," Donna tells him. Nathan says it's like his mother thinks he's sick, and that if he goes home, he'll get better. Donna points out to him that his mother has never said that, which she hasn't, and this viewer, for one, doesn't believe that that's what she thinks, either. But, wait! Here comes the drama, courtesy of Nathan, as per usual: "Donna, you don't know her! You don't know anything! 'Cos you're straight, right. You're part of the system, right. You're part of the facist, heterosexual orthodoxy!" he shouts, stalking off. "I'm black, and I'm a girl. Try that for a week," Donna retorts, smirking. Does Donna rule this show, or what? It's a close race between her and Lisa, but she's definitely a winner.
