Meanwhile, Lucy and Lauren have an unsuccessful meeting with the bank, and things get worse when Max refuses to give them a loan. Soon afterwards, though, Lucy reveals that she persuaded Max to change his mind. Lauren is delighted until she discovers that Jake has designed their new website. She quits in protest and Lucy confesses that she lied, but she promises that there will be no further involvement from Jake. Lucy also vows that there will be no more secrets between them, but can she stick to that?
Elsewhere, Ian gets caught up in a moment with Jane and kisses her, leaving her furious. As she leaves, Jane crashes into Max. Jane soon tracks Max down again to make peace with him, but he also misinterprets her friendship. When Dot finds Jane upset at the launderette, she gives her some advice and this prompts Jane to make a decision.
Also today, Ronnie hastily agrees to a birthday party for Roxy at The Vic, as Roxy is upset that she hasn't arranged anything special. Ronnie then makes a suspicious phone call. Later, Roxy gets friendly with Aleks at the party.
Finally, Tina's behaviour annoys Tosh when she puts the party before her, while Johnny appears to have jumped ship from The Vic when he lands a job at Sharon's bar.
