Scott asks Paul to take him and Mike out in the new car. Clive and Sam meet up with Susan and he gives her an engagement ring. Neither of them notice the pram roll away down the hill, and it goes straight into the path of Scottís car. He swerves to avoid it, and the car flips overÖ

Susan is happy to find that Sam is ok, but Clive rushes over to the car. He tells Susan that itís Paul, Scott and Mike, and to take Sam and call an ambulance. He tries to help, and both Mike and Paul seem to be a little bruised but fine. Paul is shocked as he realises that Scott in unconscious. Clive asks Paul and Mike if they can feel any pain in their backs or necks, and when they say that they canít, he helps them to get out. Clive gets in the car to check on Scott, and says that heís breathing, but only just. Paul barges in and says that theyíve got to get Scott out as quickly as possible, but Clive says that they donít know how badly heís injured, and have to wait for the ambulance.
