Paul says there must be some kind of mistake and Sonja asks if she means that little to him. Paul asks how sure she is that he's the father and Sonja slaps him. She tells Paul he will pay for turning his back on them.
Number 28 (real timeline)
SUSAN: How did Sonya end up with a Russian accent?
PAUL: I didn't stand there chatting about her whole backstory!
Karl asks if he and Susan were there and Paul says that's what he wanted to find out. He wanted Karl to run a paternity test.
Hospital (alternate timeline)
Paul calls out to a nurse, asking if Doctor Kennedy is here. The nurse turns around and Paul is surprised to see it's Stingray!
STINGRAY: I'm a fully legit nurse… help the needy… reap the benefits. [Paul looks disturbed] Not in a weird way! They pay me!
Stingray tells Paul there was a Dr. Kennedy but he gave up medicine to become a musician!
PAUL: What a hufter, eh?
STINGRAY: Hey, that is no way to speak about my ex- colleague! I don't care how much money you've got. How dare you?
Stingray gets a pain in his head.
PAUL: You might want to get that looked at!
STINGRAY: Hey, who's the medical professional here?
Paul goes back to Ramsay Street (accompanied by some background music from the late 1990s) but finds it has a "much better" name in this reality!
Paul finds a heavily drinking Susan inside a messy house. The old piano has reappeared, along with Lou's dark green leather couch from 1999, and the fireplace from No.32 when it used to have a living room! Paul asks Susan if he can have a word with her husband.
SUSAN: His latest book isn't selling well. That's five in a row!
PAUL: He's writing romance novels again?
SUSAN: He never stopped.
That's because Susan's husband is now Philip Martin! Philip appears, surprising Paul and all of us as it's been 12 years since we last saw him. Paul glances at the painting over the fireplace and sees Mal, Libby and Billy have been supplanted by Michael, Debbie and Hannah Martin! Paul asks how long they've been married and Susan says it's a couple more years until the big silver anniversary. Phil asks what Paul thought of his latest manuscript but it's obvious Paul hasn't read it. They hear an electric guitar outside and Susan groans; not today of all days.
Phil, Susan and Paul come out of the house as aged rocker Karl sings to Susan.
KARL (singing… badly): It might seem like old news. I have got those lovesick blues. 'Cause I lost my only muse, my one and only Suse!
Susan bitterly tells Karl for the hundredth time that she's not interested; she's moved on and is happily married. Karl taunts Philip about his books not appearing in the best sellers.
PHILIP: You know, I should stick that guitar up your…!
Paul tries to hold Philip back, and Karl runs towards his limo. He tells Susan he's got a gig at Chez Chez tonight if she can catch it! Susan gives him the middle finger!
Number 28 (real timeline)
Susan wonders if Paul has got another brain tumour!
KARL: As if you'd leave me for pursuing a career in music.
SUSAN: Shall I make some tea?!
KARL: Hey, it doesn't bother you that much does it?
SUSAN: No, not any more. I think I've got my encroaching deafness to thank for that!
KARL: But I mean how far- fetched can you get? I mean, Phil Martin!
SUSAN: How do you mean?
KARL: Well you never had a thing for him… did you?
SUSAN: Well, Phil was a kind, lovely man; just the perfect neighbour.
KARL: That wasn't a "no"!
Paul gets into Karl's limo to ask him about doing a paternity test on the quiet but Karl says he doesn't do the medicine thing any more. Sheila knocks on the window and asks Karl to autograph a CD. She tells him he's wonderful and she'll see him at the gig tonight. Karl tells Paul if he finds 'the one' to take care of them. Paul asks what if you screw up so badly that 'the one' will never forgive you.
KARL: OK, OK, if you suspect they know the truth… [Paul looks blank] from my last album? Distract them in the love booth!
Paul looks disturbed and gets out of the limo. Karl throws a tantrum about nobody listening to his new music.
Paul and Terese are in bed together.
TERESE: Wow! What was that?
PAUL: A little something I like to call the 'Limber Ladybird'!
Terese tells Paul there's something different about him but she can't put his finger on it.
TERESE: Hey, what happened to your leg?
PAUL: It's always been like that.
Paul asks Terese if she fancies taking a look at their financials later which Terese thinks is absolutely hilarious and snorts as she laughs. She has to go and get a pedicure.
Miss Polly Café
Paul comes in and orders his usual from Amy who sounds even more Kiwi than usual, and is unimpressed to learn his usual is a vegan salad! David is working in the kitchen. He sounds even more Kiwi than Amy and is wearing sunglasses and Cleveland Cavaliers basketball gear. I'm as confused as Paul at this point.
AMY: It is so good working with family.
PAUL: Yeah. No, I think it's really great that you're helping out your brother.
AMY: In- law.
Leo appears, wearing a dog collar, and kisses Amy. Paul is horrified to discover Amy and Leo are married! Jimmy doesn't exist. Paul leaves as there's something he needs to put right.
Rob watches as Paul attempts to teleport. Suddenly, someone puts a bag over Paul's head.
