Despite Diane and Pollard's best efforts, Val still can't understand why Joanie may have been overwhelmed by last night's 'ambush'. Andy tries to make Amy see that Pollard was trying to help, but she is not so sure, especially when Val tells that her the holiday to Turkey is booked - and they leave tomorrow. Trying to cheer her up, Val and Amy go shopping, but Pollard accuses her of encouraging Amy's attachment to Kyle when they return with an expensive coat for him. Amy feels put in her place as Joanie refuses to accept the coat for Kyle. This is all too much for Amy, and she warns Eric that he'll lose her if he makes her choose between him and Kyle.
