Joel tells Amy that if she mentions any problems he might have with his knee, she won't get the room at the house. Amy says she doesn't care, he's got to see that he's not going to be able to compete in any triathlon because his knee is so bad.
Joel tries to tell her that he's fine and there's nothing wrong with him, he walks away and Amy follows. He's even finding it hard to walk and Amy says it's obvious there's something seriously wrong. He calls her an airhead and storms off. Amy sees Libby at the pub and asks her to talk to him, although she still can't get over the airhead remark!
Amy sees Ruth later and talks to her about how worried she is about Joel. She tells her all about what happened at the pool... and the airhead remark! They also talk about Megan as Lance is at a techno concert with her, Amy makes it clear she dislikes her!
Drew asks Geri out for a drink after work when he finishes working on her car. Later at the pub, Lou asks Drew to go back to the garage and open up for ten minutes as someone's dropping something off, Drew says he can't because he's meeting someone. Lou realises it must be Geri! He tells him he thinks a bit insensitive for Drew to bring Geri to the pub as Libby's working there, but Drew says she's made her feelings clear. Lou also mentions Joel and the fact that Geri was going out with him, Drew says it's not even anything serious, they're just having a drink. Lou heads off to the garage. When he returns, he is soaked all over - he tells Drew that it's all his fault! The roller door that he'd been on at him to fix jammed and when he was lying on the floor to fix it a great big water truck went past!
Harold watches the training video and prepares for his new job as lollipop man.
Libby goes to see Joel at Number 30, he realises she must have been talking to Amy. He tells her that it's all in Amy's imagination, there's nothing wrong with his knee. Libby tells him she believes him but Joel invites her to the pub for a game of pool to prove that there's really nothing wrong with it at all. Libby sits down and finds an ice pack tucked down the edge of the sofa. Libby and Joel meet Drew at the pub and Joel challenges Drew to a game of pool. In the middle of the game, Joel bumps his knee into the side of the table and has to sit out, obviously in a lot of pain. Geri turns up and makes Libby rather uncomfortable, Joel tells Drew he's okay with it though. He later tells Libby that he wishes Drew had told him that he was going out with Geri. Joel and Libby get back to Number 30 and she tells him that despite the fact she found the ice pack, she's sure that there's nothing wrong with his knee as he seemed to be getting along okay earlier. Geri and Drew seem to be getting along fine at the pub, but Lou talks to him when she's gone and says he'd better be careful as soon enough he'll be under her spell!
Ruth sees Joel at Number 30 and sees him limping, she tells him that the excessive exercise is causing his knee to swell up and there's nothing she can do for it - he should be on crutches. She tells him that she's not going to treat him anymore if he won't take her advice - if he keeps pushing his knee, he won't have a knee.
Drew sees Libby the next day and says it was a fun night, Libby tells him they should make it a regular thing and really rub Joel's nose in it. Drew tells her the only reason Joel was crabby was because he banged his knee, he was fine about the Geri situation beforehand. He tells her it's probably more about how she feels. She says she doesn't know what that means, he tells her to give it some thought.
