The next day, Tiffany wanders into Whitney's room singing happy birthday but she's confused to find Bianca sat on the bed. In the café, Janine tells Pat where Whitney is and just as Whitney wakes from her slumber, Pat and Ricky are looming over her. Whitney maintains that Ryan's gone to find her real mother Debra so they can be a family again. On her reluctant return home to Pat's, Bianca hugs Whitney, insisting that they're a proper family and they're there to support her. Later, Whitney's upset when Tiffany hands over her birthday present. After a chat about Tiffany, Ryan arrives at the house and reveals that he's been unable to find their mum.
Meanwhile, Janine offers to work for Ian in return for dinner. Archie, however, isn't pleased with her behaviour towards Ian and insists that a softly-softly approach may be more apt. Later, Archie tells Janine that he's been obsessed with her since they met. With that, he promptly produces a diamond ring and asks for her hand in marriage. A shocked Janine is cautious of his motives, while Archie states that he's totally serious about her. Later, Ian turns up at her flat and mentions that he knows she's working with Archie. Janine, however, dismisses his suggestions. Three bottles of wine later, Ian's still muttering about Jane and talk soon turns to the bedroom department.
Elsewhere, Bradley visits his mother Rachel in hospital; Jean tries to coax Stacey home with the news that Bradley's returned from Canada; Max confirms to Rachel that he's cashed her cheque but she reveals that she's stopped it from being cashed; Jean asks Bradley to go with her to collect Stacey from the psychiatric hospital; Max realises that he's been tricked but Rachel refuses to listen to his lies; Syd's not happy when she hears about Bradley's plans to collect from the hospital; and on returning home, Max finds County Court bailiffs Tyler and co. divvying up the family's possessions and they explain that they'll return on Friday to collect them if they don't receive payment.
