Sam arrives at work only to start the day by reversing into Ric’s car – She’s got other things on her mind.

Chrissie’s car won’t start. She phones Owen and asks if he can take her to her appointment. She says it doesn’t matter if he can’t – He probably has a lot to do – He does but he tells her it’s alright, it’s nothing that can’t wait.
Ric presents Jess with two tickets for the theatre. Jess tells Ric she’s pulled out of college and that she’s going to be a model. Ric tells her he wants back the £3000 he gave her for a computer and course books – She says she can’t because she didn’t spend the money on those things in the first place – She used it to have breast enhancement.
Chrissie tells Owen not to wait for her – But he does anyway. She tells him what they found.
Gail decides to see her baby – She gives him a name – Joshua.
