It’s Joey and Alice’s mum’s birthday. Derek offers to drive them to visit her after the R&R youth disco. Derek reminds Joey about a trip to Southend. Joey admits he remembers Derek’s Triumph Stag and hints he’d love to drive one. Joey then tips off the police about a stolen car. Joey’ plan’s thwarted when Derek presents him with a toy car. Later, Derek confronts Joey; if Joey can’t fill his head with anything but hating him he’ll end up a disturbed, lonely little man.

After talking to Lauren, Lucy insists to Joey she’s coming with him to meet his mum. When that backfires, she changes tack, claiming she doesn’t want commitment. Lauren warns Joey not to mess Lucy about; Joey assures her he’s not like that.

He persuades Syed to discuss his problems and advises him to tell his family the truth. Instead, Syed tells Zainab Tamwar’s tried hard but the debt’s worse than he thought. Zainab insists she’s going to give Syed £6,000 - the nest egg she’s built up for Kamil and Tamwar.
