ITV.COM Marlon in a corner Thursday 27.11.03
Katie and Robert are at it again
Andy spends the morning confounding Katie's attempts to get back close to him again. He'll only stay in bed for breakfast, and is considering moving their wedding to fit with the best deals for a whitewater rafting holiday he has his eye on. She doesn't fare much better with Robert, who infuriates her by wolf-whistling at her in public. Not that a sneaky snog doesn't sort that one out...
Relations between Siobhan and Paul hit a new low. Ronnie feels uncomfortable when asked to lie for him, and Paul leaves the Woolpack, Syd in tow, rather than talk to her. Ronnie seems primarily concerned with Siobhan's feelings.
Nicola and Simon
Simon catches Nicola in the cafe, saying she owes him a drink in the Woolpack after he carried all her fliers. Nicola interprets this as being asked out on a date, but Simon is one step ahead and leaves her scrabbling for money to buy his round, to the amusement of Bob and Emily. When she tries to tell Simon that it's really not a date, he laughs back at her, claiming that he never thought it was and that she's not his type. Flinging herself into the toilets she removes her tie and adjust her cleavage to try and get some interest. When Simon looks like he might accept her offer of coffee, she asks if he's become her type. He simply replies he's not that choosy and disappears into the night.
Marlon is blackmailed by Charity
Katie and Robert meet up after the pub and agree that despite all their feelings, Robert is Andy's best man and they must be honourable. However, both of them still want the other to be the one who 'lost out', so things are far from settled.

Charity has threatened to tell Tricia about the baby unless Marlon helps with her legal fees, so the following morning, he raids the Dingle pot for £50, and only just gets away with it. He takes the money to Charity, who's unimpressed by the amount. She reminds him not to worry about Zak, but about keeping HER sweet. She demands more money urgently. Marlon finally collars Diane in the cafe and asks for an advance.
Jack persuades Katie to take Victoria shopping
Katie discovers that Danny has started organising a barbeque without telling her. Another social function with Robert - just what she doesn't want, or does she? Still, she's going up to see her dad the next day. Andy says he'll miss her, but agrees that it means he won't have to see her dad at Xmas. Katie ends up saddled with helping Victoria choose her bridesmaid's dress from the catalogues, but she only wants one for grownups. Jack knows of an ideal one in Hotten, but he's too busy to take her, so Robert volunteers to drive. Robert deliberately wastes time till they are alone, and the two of them end up kissing again instead.
Sam, Zak and Lisa at the Dingle court against Marlon
Syd has a tipoff for a horse so Zak Dingle goes back to get some money to put on it, only to find the pot empty after Marlon's raid. The Dingles bitterly gather round the radio and hear the dead-cert win, and Sam comes up with a plan to find out who's been stealing the money.

The Dingles catch Marlon as he puts the money back out of his wage advance. His protestations that he was borrowing go unheeded and a Dingle Court unanimously finds him guilty. He is banished from the Dingle house and thrown in the mud. Just as Tricia arrives, wanting to see everyone. How will he explain it?
