Maxine breaks down in the salon and confesses to Audrey about sleeping with Matt. Audrey tells her not to throw everything away over a drunken fling by telling Ashley. Sunita asks Duggie out for a drink but he tells her that he's seeing someone else - Shelley. Dev takes Deirdre to the optician and buys her a pair of designer-framed specs to replace the ones he broke. Peter tells Steve about the money but Steve is blasé about the whole thing. Sam asks Ken which film he should take Toyah to see and Ken recommends "Being John Malkovich". Dev surprises Geena by moving all her stuff into his flat. Geena is delighted. Duggie cooks Shelley a meal. She has a lovely time until he tries to kiss her. She is shocked and pushes him away telling him that as far as she is concerned they're just mates. She beats a retreat. Duggie can't believe it.
