Having been rejected by Sam, JP makes it his mission to win her back by signing up himself and some of the other housemates to take part in a medical drugs trial which he knows she will be attending.

A guilt ridden Kingsley thinks this might be a secure place to come clean to Josie about having two-timed her, but he has failed to take into account his raging hypochondria.

Meanwhile Howard finds himself involved in a dispute with a fellow student over an obscure library book which leads to him being challenged to a fight.

In the quiet of the house, Oregon is rehearsing a play she's written... but when Vod returns home early, she discovers that Oregon has not had to look far for inspiration.
