Ali and Sue are threatened with a sue over the cooker. Ali grows stressed at the realisation of how much money he will lose out on from not being able to drive his cab for potentially weeks. Saeed and Naima are invited into the café where Saeed tells Ali he crashed into his car. Ali is furious at Saeed, until Naima steps in and confesses she was driving. Saeed begs Ali to not go to the insurance company as Naima is not on the insurance, instead agreeing to pay Ali for all the fees he loses out on as well as fees to fix the car.
