She tells Billy that she is finding it difficult lying to her mom and Ben. Billy tells her that she is doing this for Ben. Billy is finding it difficult to say a sorry to Zoe as she is still angry. Jane tells him that he should call her to the party. Just then the bell rings; it is Rita1 Jane panics as Rita is not supposed to know that Kate isn’t home. Well, Billy goes into the bathroom with Jane’s laptop and plays a sound file with a woman’s voice humming.

Rita tells Jane that she was there to check on her as she had promised Ben. She leaves telling Jane to let Kate know that she had come. At school, Billy talks to Zoe and tells her that she is the best thing that he has happened to him since the time he was out of detention.

Billy and Jane check the guest list for their party and it is only three. It appears that Harper is throwing a party as well and that is where all are going.

He tells her that he has been spending the nights at Jane’s house for over a week. Zoe doesn’t like that.

She wants to know what he tells his mom when he isn’t home and he says that he says the same thing that he has been telling her for years: I am sleeping over at Jane’s. Zoe tells him that it is unfair that she doesn’t get to be with Nick on stage acting but he can sleepover at Jane’s. She storms out of the class. Billy tells Jane about what happened and he cannot explain why Zoe thinks this way as he doesn’t know the way girls think. Jane decides to get to the bottom of this.

She tells him that she can’t come as she is having this party. Eli wants to stop by and Jane is reluctant. She can’t let him attend as he would find out that Jane is in high school and that she lied at work. Eli feels that he has done something wrong because of which Jane doesn’t want him to go to her party.

The three go to tell Gray about Jeremy’s call. Gray tells Jane to go to London. Billy is upset that Jane is not going to be at the party Jane tells him that she is going to miss the party but there is nothing much that she can do about it.
