Cassie wakes up at Michelle's after a wild house party where a food fight occurred. She realises from the calendar on the fridge that Michelle's mum is due to return home that day. When Cassie tries to warn a sleeping Michelle, Michelle subconsciously tells Cassie that she is "crazy" and that she "never eats anything". Cassie leaves and meets Michelle's mum and her new husband, Malcolm, outside. While Michelle's mum, Anna, tells Cassie she is looking better, Malcolm asks if she is on hunger strike. Anna then enters the house and is horrified by the mess, prompting a hasty evacuation from most of the remaining party-goers. Cassie gets onto a bus and finds the word "eat!" on a post-it note stuck to her back. At home, she lies to her sexually-stimulated parents about having had breakfast, and informs them that it is her last clinic day. She is then picked up by the clinic taxi driver, Allan, with whom she seems to have a close relationship. He promises not to tell that she has put weights in her underwear so she can fool the clinic into thinking she is eating. At the clinic, Cassie is discharged by Abigail's psychiatrist mother, Dr. Stock, and sent to her final group therapy. At group therapy, fellow patient Madison Twatter tells the group about a student named Sid Jenkins who got drugs on credit terms from him and never paid him back (the events of the previous episode). He is furious, and tells the group that he has Sid's student card.
In college, Cassie runs into Sid at the canteen, and they talk. She reveals to him how she is able to get away with hiding the fact that she is not eating, but he is not impressed with it, and protests. When she states that "no-one cares," he responds "I care." Tony turns up and immediately starts berating Sid for his laziness and dirtiness. Cassie, wanting to defend Sid, deliberately nudges a tray in order to spill Sid's Coca-Cola on Tony's trousers, making it look as though he's wet himself, which angers him enough to attack fellow student Posh Kenneth. Before he leaves, Cassie warns Sid about Mad and mentions he has his student card. Tony goes to the staff changing room to dry his trousers, and inadvertently runs into a naked Angie, who has just been showering. Sid turns up to mention that Mad Twatter knows where he is, and Chris arrives, laughing at Tony's fight with Kenneth, only to panic and drag them out when he sees Angie is there. Sid tells his friends and Angie about Mad having his student ID card, but no one seems able to help him. As Sid continues to worry about Mad, who gets a teaching position at the college, Cassie continues to get text messages saying "eat!". When these texts seem to coincide with Sid using his phone, she assumes he is sending the texts. When she confronts him over it, he denies it, and tells her that she has no messages on her phone.
Scared and confused, Cassie calls Allan. She tells him someone keeps telling her to eat, and he implies she is imagining the texts because she is mentally sending them to herself, because she wants to eat. Cassie gives in and eats a burger.
