But will he be able to go through with his latest career change?
When Billy comes to Phil to ask for a job, he tells him that he's not best pleased with his comments and sticks up for Jay.
As his anger gets the better of him, Billy tells the kids about Jay and Honey. After suggesting to the kids that they all talk in the evening about her and Jay, Honey is upset when Billy sulks and shows up late - and tells him to get his things and leave.
Seeing Jay able to buy the kids new trainers, Billy later tells Lola that he's determined to get a new job and is pleased when he gets a trial shift at the call centre.
However, things don't go to plan and he desperately turns to Vinny, to ask about dealing drugs. Initially surprised, Vinny agrees to help him. And as he gives Billy a drugs package, Billy assures him that he knows what he's doing.
