Rae is not happy. Elderly Mrs Dewhurst across the road has accused her of being a Peeping Tom whilst a conversation with her friends in the pub exposes her as a virgin. A visit to Tix at the psychiatric ward is also depressing. However Archie asks her on a date and they are soon kissing. A second date is planned but Archie fails to show and when Rae goes after him he admits that he is gay and hoped that kissing a girl would make him straight. He is scared to come out so Rae decides the best way for them both to save face is for her to claim that she dumped him. Afterwards she goes to see Tix, this time the visit being more positive.

Did You Know?
When Rae's mother discovers that Rae has been buying sex-related items and claimed they are for her, a flashback is shown of Rae buying a pack of condoms over the counter of a local Newsagent's. Again, she claims they are "for my mum!" Above the shop assistant's head from behind is a notice reading "It is illegal to sell tobacco products to anyone under the age of 18". In 1996, the year in which the series is based, the minimum age of purchase for tobacco products in the United Kingdom was in fact 16. The minimum age of purchase in the country was not raised until October 2007 (England, Wales and Scotland) and September 2008 (Northern Ireland), some 11-12 years after the episode and overall series was based.
