Airing on ITV1

Devastated that Ashley does not reciprocate her love, Laurel tells Nicola she doesn’t want to clean the vicarage anymore. Later, Laurel is pleased when she gets a phone call from a job agency about a position in Finland as an au pair for a young couple. Nicola is stunned when she hears the news. She tries to persuade her not to go but realises her mind is made up. Ashley visits Laurel and tells her that he hopes they can still be friends regardless of everything that has happened.

Laurel tells him that’s not going to be possible because she’s moving to Finland. Ashley is shocked but tells her not to go without saying goodbye. As he leaves he gives Laurel a kiss on the cheek and realises just how upset he is at the thought of losing her.

From YTV EMMERDALE Friday 13 February 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Debbie (CHARLEY WEBB) is in trouble again for fighting on the school bus. Donna (VERITY RUSHWORTH) tries to restrain her.

With nowhere to turn, distraught Debbie goes to the church, she finds fifty pence in her pocket and puts it into the collection box before sitting down in a pew. When Ethan arrives and sees her with the collection box he immediately presumes Debbie was trying to steal from it. The accusation upsets Debbie and she throws the box on the floor and runs out of the church. Later Ethan goes round to the Dingles to try and apologise for the misunderstanding.

Elsewhere in the village, guilty Andy goes to see Daz in the care home. He invites him to the wedding but is concerned when his half brother makes weak excuses.

ITV.COM Fighting Back Friday 13.02.04
Debbie doesn't want to go to school and be bullied again, but Lisa persuades her she needs to make something of herself, and also asks Donna to keep an eye on her. It's just as well as Donna needs to stand up for her almost as soon as they're on the bus. Debbie is suspended for two weeks for attacking one of the bullies, and the fight breaks out again on the journey home. Debbie is thrown off the bus, and rather go home drifts into the church, putting her refunded bus fare in the collection box. Ethan spots her holding the wooden box for comfort and reacts badly, thinking she was going to steal it. She storms off but he realises his mistake and comes round later to apologise.
Andy heads to Manchester to see Daz in his care home. Daz doesn't give his brother an easy time, and when Daz invites him to the wedding asks if Katie has agreed. He says he'll think about it, but pool is more important right now. Andy gets back to find that Viv has decorated the hall in lurid shiny balloons as a wedding present. When he later brings Katie to show her the horror, all Viv's knots have undone - the ghastly balloons are now out of reach in the roof!
Laurel's determined to move on and after taking a mysterious phonecall she pointedly tells Nicola she won't work at the vicarage, which sets Ashley looking for her. In the Woolpack he tells Chas he's tried imagining life with Laurel but couldn't. He eventually tracks her down to explain himself, only to be told she's accepted a job as an au pair in Finland and feels a weight has been lifted off her. He tearfully tells her that people will miss her more than she can know and hopes they'll always be friends. She says that's not enough and Ashley has to walk home wondering what he's done.
