Recap
Max is done for drunk driving. He's also hurt his arm.

Shane is picking Max up from his bedsit to go to the hospital for a checkup. He berates Max for drink driving, wondering what's going to happen to the business now.
Ramsays
Nick has called round to see Maria to explain what happened last night. He explains that they had a few too many drinks and Nick insisted on Max driving his car. He braked suddenly and hit the sterring wheel. But the car is undamaged.
Nick asks Maria to make him a cup of coffee.
Mrs Forbes's Farm
A man from the bank is round to talk to Mrs Forbes about the farm, saying she can't manage it on her own. Mrs Forbes says she doesn't want to sell the farm, but says that she'll have to - she can't manage it on her own.
She tells the man from the bank to prepare the papers.
Robinsons
Paul is trying to study while Julie wanders around doing housework. They bicker about Greg and Des and the situation at the bank. Julie says that Greg is a better man than Paul or Des(!)
Julie starts ranting about Scott being missing.
Mrs Forbes's kitchen
A Mrs Anne Hammond comes round to see Mrs Forbes. She's quite surprised not to be met with a shotgun(!) She's come from Social Welfare - she wants to make sure Mrs Forbes is looked after when she leaves the farm. Mrs Forbes says she's not leaving - she has her two nephews working with her.
Max's bedsit
Max and Shane are back from the hospital. He helps Max take off his shoes. Shane says he'd better sort out his diary - decide what jobs they can and can't do.
Later at Max's bedsit
Maria has come to visit. Max invites her in. She asks Max how his arm is and looks around at the dingy room. Maria asks Max if he can manage on his own and he tells her he can. There's an awkward silence and Max offers Maria a cup of tea.
Maria tells Max there's no word of Danny yet.
Mrs Forbes's kitchen
Mrs Hammond is asking Scott and Danny which side of the family they're from. She says Mrs Forbes will be going in to care. Mrs Forbes guesses that Scott and Danny aren't really family. She says that Mrs Forbes' pension will pay for the care place. She says she'll be in touch in a few days.
When she's gone, Mrs Forbes says Scott and Danny had better go home. They should swallow their pride and call their family. Scott realises that she's right - he's going to call his dad. Danny isn't keen saying his Dad will belt the living daylights out of them. He says he's not going back to cop it for something he didn't do.
Nick's car
Nick has given Paul a test drive of his car. Paul is impressed with it. Nick says Paul should decide what he wants in life and then go for it. Paul says he'd better finished Uni first. Nick says Paul isn't really happy at Uni - if he's not really into it, he should leave. Paul says he quite likes social work. Nick says Paul has to make up his mind what he wants - and if he wants to think big, Nick can help to set him on his way.
Mrs Forbes' Farm
Scott and Danny are clearing up some mess and putting it in the back of the ute.
Max's bedsit
Maria doesn't see how Shane can help Max run the business. Max says that Shane will just do the driving for him.
Maria heads off and Max bids her goodbye. He looks a bit sad.
MARIA: If there's anything you want, you know where we are.
Mrs Forbes's kitchen
Mrs Forbes is servicing her shotgun(!) She says she knows Scott and Danny aren't brothers. Also she doesn't think that their families were rough on them. Now it's time for them decide where they go from here - the farm is finished.
A Pub
Paul tells Nick that he'll have to talk things over with Jim first. Nick tells Paul you can get so wrapped up in your own little world you forget what's out there. If Paul wants a career in the airline business, Nick will get him an interview. From then on, it's up to him.
Paul says it's a big decision.
Des's
Julie comes round to see Daphne. She tells Daphne off for telling Des what she said to her about bank business. Daphne tells Julie angrily that she goes round spreading insults about Daphne so she can't expect Daphne not to do anything about them. Julie is furious.
Just then Paul comes in and tells Julie off. She storms off.
Paul tell Daphne that he's thinking of going for an interview for a airline steward's job. Daphne is surprised and asks Paul what Jim would think.
Mrs Forbes's kitchen
Danny tells Scott that he's moving on. Scott says they can't run forever. Mrs Forbes tells them that whatever trouble they're in, they can put things right. Mrs Forbes says everyone does things they regret. She says having Scott and Danny around has been like a new lease of life, but now it's all over. She gives Danny and penknife and Scott a watch to remember her by - they were her husband's most treasured possessions. They accept in shock. She tells them to get a move on - now Social Welfare knows where they are, they'll be round to pick them off. She herself is going into care.
MRS FORBES: Goodbye, Danny. Goodbye, Scott. If I'd have had a couple of sons, I'd have liked them to be like you boys.
When Mrs Forbes has gone, Danny and Scott sit quietly looking at the penknife and watch. But then they hear a gunshot from the other room.
DANNY: Mrs Forbes! Mrs Forbes!
