Xanthe is outside, and takes a deep breath as she waits for Ben to answer the door. He does.
BEN: Alright. I thought we were meeting at Lassiter's?
XANTHE: Is that what you're wearing?
BEN: Well, yeah - why?
XANTHE: You're meeting Angus Young.
BEN: I don't think he'll care.
XANTHE: You are *so* lucky you know me!
Xanthe barges in to find Ben a better outfit!
XANTHE: Bedroom this way?
He watches her, bemused, as she makes a beeline for his room...

The living room is strewn with Ben's clothes, as Xanthe appears to be thoroughly absorbed in watching him change outfits! He pulls on a T- shirt.
BEN: What about this one?
XANTHE: Ugh, no. Next!
BEN: There is no next! You've gone through my whole closet!
XANTHE: Oh. Well in that case, perfect! Oh, my god, I love it.

She leaps up and starts playing with his hair!
XANTHE: You've got something on your hair, I'll fix that for you...

Xanthe is still taking her sweet time ‘fixing’ Ben’s hair!
BEN: So, umm, how are we getting into Lassiter’s?
XANTHE: I’m gonna go pick up a catering box.
BEN: That easy, huh?
XANTHE: Yeah. We might have to go through the back, but…
Ben steps back.
BEN: Xanthe?
XANTHE: What?
BEN: Is this legit?
She grabs him by the shoulders.
XANTHE: Relax! You just have to trust in the process!

No 28
Xanthe is looking at a CD case belonging to Ben.
XANTHE: Wow, this is very ancient…
BEN: Oh, I know – but it’s special. You know, it was my dad’s.
Xanthe looks surprised.
BEN: Do you reckon Angus will sign it for me?
XANTHE: Yeah, definitely!
But Xanthe looks guilty, as Ben’s phone rings.
BEN: Hang on, it’s Grandma…

Xanthe listens in while Ben talks quietly to Susan on the phone nearby.
BEN: Yes, I’ll stay away from Xanthe. Not really my type. Bit of an airhead anyway… Alright. Catch you soon, Gran. Bye...
Xanthe looks hurt as Ben approaches.
BEN: Right, are we heading off?
XANTHE: Actually, I need to go to Harold’s.
BEN: Yeah, I’ll come with.
XANTHE: No, I will meet you at the hotel.
She pushes past him coldly and makes for the front door. Ben looks surprised.

Lassiter’s Lake
Ben and Xanthe are talking by the water.
BEN: I’m sorry about what I said before. I didn’t mean it.
XANTHE: Whatevs. Let’s go.
But Ben can tell that Xanthe is still upset.
BEN: I’m not going anywhere. Not until you accept my apology.
Xanthe softens.
XANTHE: What about Angus?
BEN: I don’t care.
Ben smiles at Xanthe.
XANTHE: Apology accepted.
She takes his hand and he grins as she drags him away.

We now jump to after the explosion at Lassiter’s. Having left the building unscathed, Xanthe and Ben are in the garden at No 26. Xanthe’s looking sad. Ben sits down next to her.
XANTHE: Did you hear about Josh and Doug?
BEN: Yeah.
XANTHE: The Willises are never gonna be able to see them again. It’s so unfair.
Seeing she’s upset, Ben puts an arm around her, and she rests her head on his shoulder.

Xanthe and Ben are still sitting in the garden.
XANTHE: I’m tired.
BEN: Yeah, me too.
XANTHE: Are you still angry ‘cause I lied about Angus?
(She’s referring to Angus Young, the AC/DC guitarist whom she’d falsely promised Ben she’d set up a meeting with.)
BEN: Seems stupid to be upset about that now. After everything that’s happened.
He takes her hand and holds it.

No 26
Another day. Ben finds Xanthe in the garden, where she’s playing her euphonium.
BEN: Hey, you’re playing! That’s a good sign.
She stops abruptly when she realises he’s there, seemingly embarrassed.
XANTHE: Doesn’t make me feel any better, though.
BEN: I’m the same.
XANTHE: Mum always said there’s nothing that can’t be cured by shopping!
BEN: We really shouldn’t spend the money. But I suppose there’s no harm in window- shopping.
XANTHE: Let’s go!

Power Street
Xanthe is at the bus stop, applying her makeup while listening to music through headphones. She puts her makeup back into a bumbag at her waist, which we see is also stuffed with $50 notes!
She dances along to the music in her ears, blissfully unaware that Ben is approaching. He grins and laughs as he walks towards her.

Power Street
At the bus stop, Ben is teasing Xanthe, mimicking a phone with his hand.
BEN (on the ‘phone’): Okay, sure.
He pretends to hang up.
BEN: Well, the nineties called. They want their bumbag back.
XANTHE: Erm, the nineties are totally in right now. Isn’t that why you dressed your hair like a Backstreet Boy?
Ben rearranges his hair in alarm.
XANTHE: Now you look like Biebs, circle 2009.
BEN: I think you mean ‘circa’. What have you got in there, anyway?
XANTHE: Just hairbrushes...

The City™
Xanthe and Ben are walking down a busy laneway.
XANTHE: You know what would make this day even better?
BEN: Xanthe, no.
XANTHE: But that guitar was live. And it’s not every day that you have five Gs lying around.
BEN: I’m banning you from saying ‘five’ and ‘Gs’ from now on.
XANTHE: Whatever.
Xanthe rushes towards a clothes shop window, gesticulating excitedly to Ben.
XANTHE: Oh my god, that top!
Ben rolls his eyes as she squeals with delight.

The City™
Xanthe and Ben are in a clothes shop. Xanthe emerges from the fitting room in a new top.
XANTHE: You like?
BEN: Nope. Hate it.
XANTHE: …
BEN: I’m joking!
XANTHE: Ben!
She punches him playfully. We then cut to Ben trying on a ridiculous yellow jacket and sunglasses, as Xanthe films him.
XANTHE: No!
BEN: Come on. It’s fantastic!
We next cut to Ben pulling a boot off Xanthe’s leg.
XANTHE: Harder!
An unimpressed shopkeeper emerges.
SHOPKEEPER: Is everything okay here?
XANTHE: Yeah, fine.
BEN: All good!

The City™ - clothes shop
Ben is idly twirling a bracelet in his hands, when Xanthe appears from within the fitting room.
XANTHE: Ben?
BEN: Yeah?
XANTHE: Can you help me for a second?
In the fitting booth, he helps her fasten a necklace at the back, and afterwards there seems to be an almost- moment between them.
XANTHE: Thanks! That could have been real awkward.
BEN: … Yeah. I’ll wait outside.
XANTHE: Yes. Mm- hm.
She closes the curtain as he leaves.

The City™ - clothes shop
Xanthe watches jealously through some shelves, as the shopkeeper talks to Ben!
SHOPKEEPER: Hey, are you going to Flinders Festival this weekend?
BEN: Uh, I dunno. The line- up looks pretty good, though.
SHOPKEEPER: Yeah! Might see you there…
Xanthe interrupts.
XANTHE: Actually, no, you won’t, because we’re studying this weekend together for a *high school* assignment! Yep, come on Ben – let’s go.
Xanthe shoos Ben out of the shop. But she’s no longer wearing her bumbag…

The City™ - outside Flinders Street Station
Ben and Xanthe are walking along. Xanthe presumably hasn’t noticed that her bumbag is missing.
XANTHE: That shop assistant was trying to crack onto you.
BEN: Was she?!
XANTHE: Yes, it was very obvious!
Ben laughs.
XANTHE: And she’s, like, twice your age – what a cougar!
BEN: Oh well, I’m not interested anyway. Do you want to walk by the Yarra on the way home?
XANTHE: It’s like a two- hour detour.
BEN: I know.
He’s got a look in his eye.

The City™ - Southbank
Ben and Xanthe sit down on a bench by the riverside.
XANTHE: I’ve had a really good day today.
BEN: Yeah, me too.
They smile at one another. Ben appears to be moving in to kiss her, but they’re interrupted by a loud screeching noise from a passing boat, and they both laugh. Xanthe suddenly has a realisation.
XANTHE: Oh my god, Ben – my bag is gone!
TO BE CONTINUED

The City™ - Southgate Footbridge
Ben and Xanthe walk across the bridge, discussing her missing bumbag.
XANTHE: This is bad – this is really, really bad.
BEN: Take it as a sign from the universe – bumbags should have never come back into fashion.
Xanthe stops dead, and they argue in the middle of the bridge.
XANTHE: Are you seriously making a joke right now?!
BEN: it’s a few hairbrushes – calm down!
XANTHE: No, you don’t understand – it’s more than that, okay? All the money was in that bag, Ben – all five Gs.
BEN: Are you kidding?!
TO BE CONTINUED

Episode: 19
Release date: 21/04/16
The City™ - clothes shop
Xanthe and Ben have returned to the clothes shop, where the shopkeeper puts Xanthe’s bumbag on the counter.
SHOPKEEPER: Is this it?
XANTHE: Yes – oh, my goodness, thank you so much.
SHOPKEEPER: Hang on, I’ve just got to check your ID – make sure it’s actually yours.
She’s about to open the bumbag.
XANTHE: Erm, you can’t do that. That is illegal.
SHOPKEEPER: Not in this store.
XANTHE: Fine. Then I’ll go and tell the cops that you were flirting with a high school student. Mm- hm – yeah, that’s right, cradlesnatcher!
Xanthe grabs the bumbag and marches out. Ben smiles and waves sheepishly at the shopkeeper, before following Xanthe out of the shop.

The City™
An annoyed- looking Ben marches down a busy street, Xanthe following with her bumbag.
XANTHE: Are we still gonna walk along the Yarra?
BEN: I wanna go home.
She touches his shoulder.
XANTHE: Ben – I wasn’t gonna spend any of the money.
BEN: Then what did you bring it for, hmm?
XANTHE: …
BEN: Exactly. This is why I can’t hang out with you. I always end up in trouble.
Xanthe sighs as Ben keeps walking.
