- Hayley urges Phoebe to finish her homework before she goes to Home Farm, and reminds her to remember the jacket she left there at the weekend. Phoebe is anxious to point out that it wasn’t Kate’s fault she left it. She tells Hayley about the email from Nolly which upset Kate.

- Kate’s rudeness knows no bounds. Jennifer asks whether she’s changed the anti-virus settings on her laptop; Kate denies it, then launches into a tirade against Hayley. When Jennifer tries to make Kate see reason, Kate turns on her too.
