Fiz is furious with Kirk when she finds out he didn't write her a poem at all but merely recited some song lyrics to her. Kirk's distraught saying he meant every word. Ashley's concern at Claire's state of mind grows as she refuses to discuss her mother's illness and continually stonewalls him. Under pressure from Steve, Sean, Betty and Violet, Liz gives Michelle her job back. As Michelle plucks up the courage to ask Steve out she overhears him talking to Liz. Liz describes her as a single parent looking for a meal ticket. Michelle's hurt. Fiz calms down and admits she does want to be with Kirk after all. She asks Kirk if he'll teach her to drive and he willingly agrees. Liam reminds Frankie she agreed to a date with him when she was drunk. Craig's amazed when David tells him how he intends to continue skiving off school next term even though he's been in so much trouble. Thinking Steve's not interested in her, Michelle makes it clear she overheard his conversation with Liz and then goes home upset. Steve's gutted realising she's got entirely the wrong impression.
