Cody thinks they would have to do it thoroughly.
Lou surprises Cheryl with some flowers.
CHERYL: You're a tryer, I'll give you that.
LOU: When I set my mind to something I don't give up. That's what makes me a terrific salesman.
Cheryl is determined not to be swayed. Lou wants an explanation as she was chasing him when he wasn't interested in marriage. For her first marriage, she was very young, everyone was doubtful about the marriage. Everything went well. Lou points out that would convince her she should marry again.

Cheryl is lying down fanning herself on the sofa. She's trying to lower her blood pressure! The other keys were in her handbag which was also in her car which makes Lou laugh. Cheryl can't see the funny side but Lou can't help laughing!
LOU: I'd loved to have been there when the copper caught you breaking into your own car.
The copper managed to get in very quickly. Cheryl is refusing to let Brett drive her in the future! She can't cope with this stress whilst she is pregnant as she doesn't want to risk losing the baby!
