Is it all over before it's even started?
The day of Ted's funeral has arrives and Eileen assures George that with Tim driving the hearse, it will go like clockwork. But when Steve finds out that Eileen asked Tim to drive the hearse rather then him, he's put out. So George agrees to give Steve and Tim a practise run at driving the hearse to see who’s best.
After a hair-raising ride with Steve at the wheel, a shaken George asserts it’s Tim’s turn. Having got the funeral gig, Tim performs a victory dance, but when Eileen reminds him it’s a serious job, Tim and Steve take the mickey, aware that she fancies George.
With Ted’s coffin centre stage in the living room, Gail confides in Audrey that she just wants Ted to have a fitting send off and hopes Eileen doesn’t mess things up. And as Tim readies himself to drive the hearse, Steve enjoys winding him up.
All jittery, Tim announces he can’t go through with it and hurries away, leaving Eileen to leap in the hearse herself! Assuring George that she knows what she's doing, does she really?
After the debacle of Street Cars ruining the funeral, Eileen is left devastated after George tells her that she publicly humiliated him and he wants nothing more to do with her.
In the cafe, apologising to George for messing up the funeral, Eileen assures him it was entirely unintentional. But when Gail calls in and drags George off to the library to do some further genealogy research, Eileen takes the mickey out of Gail and her family tree and George reaches his limit and orders the pair to shut up.
