I forgot to tell everyone - I never realised this was from the second best british sitcom of the 21st century and spent years just thinking it was atease patter. That's why I often said "you've just imagined" and ditched the rest of it, I didn't realise I was mangling an Office quote.  

 

It's been utterly ruined for me now and I'll never use it again.

What percentage of your tv watching is based on seeing a glimpse of a few tasties

 

Not that much really! For example I'm probably going to watch Friday Night Shites over Gossip Girl, and I'm sure the latter has more tidies.

In the finale double episode, Winnie decides to take a job for the summer of 1973 as a lifeguard at a resort. Kevin, anxious to experience a taste of adult life, plans a cross-country trip with his friends. Kevin's dad, Jack, vehemently objects to Kevin's plan and ultimately Kevin abandons his planned trip. Kevin returns to his job at his father's furniture factory and telephones Winnie, who by all accounts is distant and seems to be enjoying her time away from Kevin. Eventually, Kevin and his father have a huge fight and Kevin announces that he is leaving, reasoning that he needs to "find himself." Kevin hops in his car and heads to the resort where Winnie is working, hopeful that she can secure him a job and they can spend the rest of the summer together. 

Much to Kevin's chagrin, Winnie does not appear too pleased with Kevin's arrival and maintains her distance. Kevin is finally able to secure a job at the resort's restaurant and resides in the bus boys' dorm. Feeling confused and frustrated over Winnie's behavior, Kevin searches out other activities to occupy his time. Kevin decides to play poker with the resort's in-house band members. Kevin wins big and goes searching for Winnie, anxious to share the tale of his good fortune. When Kevin finds her, Winnie is engaged in a passionate kiss with a male lifeguard. 

The next day, Kevin confronts Winnie about her actions, and they have a huge fight. The fallout with Winnie leads Kevin to play another round of poker with the band. This time Kevin ends up losing everything, including his car. Desperate, Kevin confronts Winnie and her new beau at the restaurant and ends up punching him in the face. Kevin then leaves the resort on foot. 

On a desolate stretch of highway, Kevin decides to begin hitchhiking. He finally gets picked up by an elderly couple and much to his surprise he finds Winnie in the backseat. Winnie was fired over the fight Kevin instigated at the resort. Kevin and Winnie begin to argue and the elderly couple get fed up and decides to drop them both off. A flash rain storm begins and Kevin and Winnie search for shelter. They find a barn and discuss how much things are changing and the prospects for the future. At first Winnie tells Kevin that she doesn't see them ending up together but quickly recants, telling Kevin "I don't want it to end." Kevin and Winnie share a passionate kiss and spend the night together. It is implied, and generally believed by fans of the show, that they make love for the first time during this moment, but it wasn't confirmed by the narrator.  

They soon find their way back to their hometown and arrive hand-in-hand to a 4th of July Parade. During this parade, Kevin (Daniel Stern) describes the fate of the show's main characters. Kevin made up with his father, returned to work, graduated high school in 1974 and then left for college. Paul studies law at Harvard. Karen gives birth to a son in September 1973. Kevin's mother becomes a businesswoman and board chairman. Kevin's father dies two years later, and Wayne takes over his father's furniture business. Winnie studies art history in Paris while Kevin stays in the United States. Winnie and Kevin end up writing each other "once a week" for the next eight years. In the final epilogue, Kevin mentions how he is there, along with his wife and child, to greet Winnie when she returned to the United States in 1982. 

The final sounds, voice-over and dialogue of the episode and series is that of Kevin (Daniel Stern) providing concluding narration with the sound of children playing in the background. A young boy (Stern's real life son) can be heard asking his dad to come out and play during a break in the final narration. Kevin's (Daniel Stern) narrative responds, "I'll be right there" as the episode closes.
