Pete tries to talk to Jake about the bullying, but Jake tells him to "chill". Jake later reveals that someone has taken his mobile phone.

Angela visits. Her boyfriend has ended their relationship. She tells Jake all about her sadness. Later, Sue asks her to stay for dinner.

Pete tells Sue that he has been questioned by a journalist, but insists that he only said "no comment". He also tells her than one of his friends has given up work and gone on a trip around the world. He suggests that would be something they think about doing. Sue does not seem to like the idea,

Veronica hassles Sue about a printer, that she wants Sue to procure. When Sue finds out that the printer is for personal use, she resigns.
