JJ is in love. Lara Lloyd is sweet perfection and he's smitten. But JJ thinks she's way out of his league and lacks the courage to ask her out.
Thomas tells him he should make a move, and if he doesn't, he will. So JJ plucks up the courage...
With the date from hell behind them, JJ's concerned Lara will run a mile when she learns he's the way he is. Plus there's an ex boyfriend who's still in love with her who will always be on the scene.
But it's JJ's friends and family who are really messing things up. His confidante is an escaped Cookie, his mum and his psychiatrist Doctor Felly are concerned about his new attitude, and Emily's worried that Lara will break his heart, and tells him so.
Everything conspires to mess up JJ's pursuit of Lara, so JJ realises he's got to do this all by himself. And that's what he does. Almost all by himself anyway
