When Fiona Gallagher's bag is stolen on a night out in Manchester, a man called Steve comes to her rescue and he accompanies her back to her home in Chatsworth, an inner city council estate. The pair begin to get close, until they are interrupted by the police bringing in her passed out alcoholic father, Frank. Meanwhile, Lip makes some discoveries regarding his brother Ian's sexuality and secret relationship with local shopkeeper Kash. Karen's father leaves home after catching her in a compromising position.
Did You Know?
[it's the early hours of the morning and Frank has turned the radio up full blast
Do you know what time it is?
Yeah, sorry Kev - it's Frank.
[Kev barges in
What have I told you?
Oh, here we go - neighbours of Satan.
The day you pay rent like some of us, Frank, you can play whatever shit you want, but until then if you're pumping it this time of night you play stuff that we like.
