Alex realises he has a chance to win Nicola over with concert tickets for her favourite band, Boyz-AZ-1. He just has to dig them out of his kitchen bin where Sam threw them out that morning. But when he gets held back in detention by Norris, he knows it'll be a race against time to recover the tickets before the bins are collected.

Sure enough, by the time he gets home, he sees the garbage truck driving away from his house. He chases it to the tip where he's forced to dig through a pile of filthy rubbish bags in search of the tickets. When he shows up at the concert hall hours later, completely dishevelled and minus the tickets, Nicola is furious and Alex knows he's lost any chance he had of impressing her.

But lucky for him, he gets the chance to try again when his loop year comes around. This time, he grabs the tickets before Sam throws them out but then she reclaims them to sell online. Thwarted again, Alex remembers the ticket scalper he saw last time and raids his piggy-bank to pay the $200, only to discover he's been ripped off and has ended up with tickets for an old concert. But just when Alex decides he's ruined any chance he had with Nicola, she does something unexpected. Could he still be in with a shot?
