2004: Brief return to Walford[]

The day before the twenty-fifth anniversary of Jimmy Harris' death in April 2004, Pat plans to meet up with Stan. At the same time Stan also tells his sister Mo and Charlie Slater to meet him, as he had just been released from prison for murder. However he instead gets a bus to meet Pat, and they agree to plant a rose tree on the anniversary of Jimmy Harris' death. Stan Brings up Mo, but Pat specifically tells him not to invite Mo as she didn't tell Pat that her brother had died. Stan then visits Mo and Charlie, and he tells her about Pat's plan to visit Jimmy's grave, since Mo also had similar plans. On their way to Jimmy's grave, they stop off at the church where Jimmy and Mo got married and reminisce about the wedding. Stan tries to break into the now-derelict church, to see if he can sell anything from there, however Charlie stops him. When they get there, Stan finds his lost lucky charm, which Jimmy gave to him - however Pat reveals that Jimmy got it from a Christmas cracker. After Pat says a speech, they all go to have a drink and have a toast to Jimmy. Stan realises that he's lost his lucky charm again, so he and Charlie go to find it again. He then reveals that it wasn't Jimmy who gave it to him, but instead Tony Cattani. The cemetery gardener finds it and gives it back to Stan, and Charlie talks about how Stan could settle down with the family. They find their way back to Mo and Pat, and Stan accidentally causes an argument between them after mentioning Tony. He then leaves after a conversation with Charlie.
