He tells Julie to invite Peter to the party, so she can keep out of everyone's hair!
Maria is changing the bed and cleaning Danny's room a bit. Shane helps her to fold clothes. Shane says that things see a bit tense between Maria and Max. He says he remembers the last time Max and Maria split up, but he was just a kid then.
SHANE: Do you still love Dad, Mum?
MARIA: Yes. The question is, does he believe it?
Paul comes down to the bank to make a withdrawal. He bumps into Peter and tells him about the party at the Ramsay House.

Jim meets Anna by the lake. She's asked him to meet her to talk about their relationship. She says that she can't cope - things have happened so quickly and caused a rift between Max and Maria. She's also worried about Julie.

JIM: You love me, don't you?
JIM: Then we're doing the right thing.

She tells Maria she was going to tell Jim she was going back to Queensland, but then he gave her an engagement ring. Maria admires the ring and says that Jim is a wonderful man and they are perfect for each other. But Anna says she owes a lot to Gino. Maria says she can't marry Gino out of gratitude, like she did Max.
Mrs Armitage comes round to see Helen. Helen is not very pleased to see her. She bangs on about her husband then tells Helen that she's heard some gossip. She tells Helen she understand what drink does to a person.

Scott reads the letter - it's from Kim. Apparently she's fine. He shows the letter to Paul. Paul says that now Scott can stop worrying.

Helen has come home from Mrs Crowley's. She has a brooch she wants to give to Anna. She says she feels sorry that Anna has to put up with Julie, Lucy and Max. Helen says she could throttle Julie. She says that Julie has made the house her own and doesn't want another woman in the house. Helen says she has no worries about another woman replacing Anne - Anne would have hated Jim to be lonely. They head off to join the party.
Ramsays - engagement party
Max is explaining to Carol that the street was named after his grandfather.
Helen gives Anna the brooch - it's a cameo one. Anna is very pleased.
JULIE:(shouting) You can't give her that! That was my mother's!
