Steve tiling the ladies’ washroom in Tuesday’s episode was funny. I wasn’t the only one to think so, I would guess, based on the production team’s decision to use it as the still prior to the commercial break. It is rare that shots taken from the actual episode are used instead of one of the stock shots of the street or pub.
If Steve had let common sense overrule emotion, he might have looked at Tony repairing the loo as only right. Tony owns half the pub. He makes no contribution to its operation at all. I hope he is not getting half the returns from it. But as his share of the workload, and as penance for his fraud, having him do repair work for free makes sense. But doing that repair work means his presence in the bar and Steve, with cause, does not want to see him near the place.
