Rae and Chloe fall out when Chloe admits she is secretly dating their P.E. teacher Stephen Carrisford. There is further disharmony when Chop and Finn invite Rae to a rock concert but not Chloe. In fact they regard Rae as one of the lads, rather than a girl, which disheartens her and, after an encounter with the Green Lane gang of bullies, she starts self-harming again. Rae admits to Dr Gill her envy of Chloe after which she is again picked on by the Green Lane gang but rescued by Finn, for whom she realises she is falling. However, on the day of the concert, she stays behind to console Chloe, who has been dumped by Carrisford. They share a pleasant girls' afternoon at Chloe's house and Rae is about to confess all about her mental illness but is upset when Carrisford phones and Chloe rushes to see him.

Did You Know?
Rae and Clo are sat in Clo's bedroom listening to the Knebworth concert on the radio. A live version of Ocean Colour Scene's The Riverboat Song is heard. While the Oasis concert was broadcast live on Radio One, it was not the Saturday night concert Rae passed on going to, but the Sunday night concert, and none of the support acts were played, Jo Whiley introduced the concert at 9pm.

Rae is tipping out the contents of a box of personal items. One of these items is a plastic Compact Disk case. The CD is that of the Boyzone song 'No Matter What'. The single was in fact released in the United Kingdom in August 1998, exactly two years after the episode was set. See more
