When Lola heads to The Vic to collect the money for some cleaning she did, Alfie insists on paying her extra. However, an argument breaks out when Phil interferes by ordering Alfie not to. Lola loses her temper by branding Phil a bully for the way he treated Jay. Phil fires back by declaring that he doesn't need to take advice from someone who doesn't even know who the father of her child is.
