As Lindsey finds out Freddie didn't turn up for the appointment, Kim goes back to the Roscoes' and changes the note on the chalk boardback to 1pm. Lindsey's furious with Freddie and says she doesn’t know why they're together. He storms out and bumps into Mercedes, who's feeling sorry for herself about being pregnant and man-less. They go to The Loft and comfort each other but, when drunk Freddie makes a move on her, Mercedes slaps him!
