Viv goes to talk to Bob and witnesses him talking to his son. Seeing how happy Bob looks she comes up with a plan. Later on, Viv tells Bob that she would like to give him the chance to be a good father. Bob isn't sure what she means but then she tells him that she wants them to have a baby. Bob is dumbstruck and explains that it can't happen because he's had the snip. Viv wants him to have it reversed and is gutted when Bob refuses.
