Kim runs away. Scott runs away too, to look for her!
Scott finds Kim at the ruined castle. They hug.

Ramsays - Danny's room
Maria brings Danni a hot drink and asks how he's sleeping these days. She wants to know if his sudden illness has anything to do with the business at school(!) She says that it was a silly joke to play. Danny goes on to say that Max doesn't like him - he's always bawling him out, yet is nice to Shane. Maria says that Shane doesn't fight for the last word like Danny does.
Maria makes Danny go off to school.
Scott and Kim are putting together a shopping list. Scott wants to ring Jim to let him know they're OK - he won't say where they are. Kim is glad that Scott gets on with his parents - hers are so old-fashioned.
Mrs Taylor comes round for a little rant. But Jim isn't there, he's had to go to the office. Helen says that if Scott's with Kim, he'll take care of her. Helen says that Scott is level-headed and mature, but Mrs Taylor scoffs at that.
Scott rings at that moment and Mrs Taylor shouts that she wants to know where her daughter is. Scott hangs up.
Scott and Kim are cooking some sausages on an open fire. Scott tells Kim that she'll have to go back home - they can't survive on their own. Kim says that she can't go back - her mother has watched her like a hawk all her life. Also she called Kim a liar and threatened to take her to a doctor.
Later at the ruined monastery
Kim has calmed down a bit now and Scott gives her a hot dog. He still wants Kim to go back to her parents, but since she won't, he'll stick with her.
Max sees Danni approaching on his bike and waves him down. He shouts at Danny for not going to school. He says Danny he'd better go and face the music.
A man on the television is talking about the runaway statistics for Australia - 25,000 a year. Then he holds up a photo of Kim and starts interviewing Kim's mother. Kim's mother says she'll search day and night until she finds her. She describes Kim as a sweet and innocent girl. The Robinsons watch gravely.
Helen says that Mrs Taylor is being very hypocritical. Paul says that Scott needn't end up in a squat. Helen agrees - Scott will come home. Jim muses that noone cares about runaways these days.
Scott is telling Kim that she has to face up to things. He suggests that she comes back with him to the Robinson house. But Kim tells him that the police are probably after Scott about the accusations against him. Scott says he only ran away so he could look after Kim. He lies down and tries to go to sleep.
Kim starts to cry, so Scott gets up and comforts her. They curl up together and fall asleep.
Julie has heard about Scott and Kim in the papers, but Helen has convinced her not to come home from holiday(!)
Just then, Max and Danny come round. Max apologises to Jim for the situation with the tape. Max makes Danny apologise too, and he does so, very sincerely. When Danny has gone, Max tells Jim that Danny mentioned an old monastery this morning. Jim asks Paul if he knows of an old monastery. Paul looks thoughtful.
Jim drives up in his car and quietly makes his was into the monastery. He calls out to Scott. Scott calls back and Jim hugs him in relief. He tells Jim that Kim won't go back, and he can't leave Kim. Jim says they're in all the papers so they can't go on the run. Jim says that everyone makes mistakes, including Kim's parents. Jim tells Scott about the runaway statistics - 25,000 a year. All kids who have ruined their lives - he doesn't want that to happen to Scott and Kim. Jim says that Kim's parents have been too strict with her, but they do love her. Jim asks Scott if he can talk to Kim too.
But Kim has overheard their conversation and done a runner.
Jim and Scott search all over the monastery for Kim, but they can't find her. They head off home.
Julie has arrived home early. Helen is surprised to see her, but Julie says she belongs there with the family.
Just then, Scott and Jim come in and Julie hugs Scott. Helen is nearly crying with relief. Jim sends Scott off for a bath. Then he heads over to the Taylor house to tell them what's happened.
