Michael and Danni are studying together. Danni tells him how hard it is to make friends. She tells that it must be even harder for people who have cancer or epilepsy.

Cheryl and Lou are hugging, but just then there's a knock at the door. They arrange to meet in half an hour "wearing something sexy" (yuk!)
Cheryl exits through the back door and Lou opens the door to Doug. He moans about the female members of the family giving him a hard time and asks if Lou will have a quiet beer with him and watch the cricket. Doug decides to go and invite his building mates round for a boys' night at his place. Lou can see it's important to Doug so he reluctantly decides to give up his night with Cheryl.
Michael pops round looking for odd jobs to earn cash fast. Pam asks him suspiciouly why he needs the money and he explains about the CD player.
Lou is explaining to Cheryl that he has to hang out with Doug tonight. She's got champagne on ice and says they'll just have to make the most of the next hour. They're just getting sexy when Danni comes in. Lou hides behind a curtain(!)
Danni sees the champagne and the candles so Cheryl quickly gives her some money and sends her off. But Danni decides to go for a shower before going out. When she's gone, Lou make a sharp exit!

Rick and Cody are watching a movie. Rick is still interrogating Cody about Michael. He then starts sewing some buttons on his shirt.
Debbie is looking for her CD player. Michael tells her that he's off to the movies with Danni. Debbie doesn't think it's a good idea as Cody might be jealous.
Cody moans that the movie is very slushy. Rick keeps looking at her romantically so she decides to leave.
Doug is just waving off his friends. Pam moans that Doug and his mates were very loud. Doug says that he's fed up of being treated like a lodger and having to fit in with anything Pam, Cody or Gaby are doing. None of them take him seriously. He brings up the letter and Cody and Pam look rather guilty.
DOUG: Why don't you tell the whole world your Dad's a loser? Seems to be the general opinion of me these days.
He goes off to Brad's room to sleep alone.
Michael and Danni are back from the movies. When Danni has gone off to change, Cheryl tells Michael that Danni is very happy since she's been hanging out with Michael. Michael says that they're not an item, but Cheryl says Danni thinks otherwise.
Front of No.22 (the following morning)
Danni drops her bag and some insulin falls out. Rick does the maths and realises that Danni is diabetic. She tells him to keep it secret. He tells her off for pretending to be a junkie.
Cody and Pam are making Doug a massive fry- up. Cody apologises for writing the letter and says she didn't mean to hurt him. Pam assures him that things are going to be different from now on. Doug does not look convinced, but eventually comes round and forgives them.
Rick pops round to call Cody for school. Pam tells Doug quietly that they should have an early night tonight (yuk!)
Lou tells Doug in confidence that he's seeing Cheryl again. Doug is pleased for him. Lou explains that they're trying to keep it from the kids, so Doug gives Lou his house keys and says the house will be empty all day(!)
DOUG: Go on, enjoy yourself!
LOU: mate, you are a lifesaver!
Michael tells Danni that he's walking to school with Cody and she can join them if she likes. Danni looks rather put- out.
No.28 (Cody's room)
