It's Valentine's Day and love is in the air. Emma receives a card for the first time ever and resolves to find out who sent it to her - believing the next obvious step to be marriage.

Despite never having had a driving lesson in her life, Brenda is determined to pass her driving test. But on her first attempt she manages to write off Tony's old car, and agrees to take lessons from Tim.

Jenny tells Brenda that Tim has sent her a suggestive Valentine's card and she's pretty sure he's going to propose.
