A motorbike comes down the toad and a bloke lifts his visor.
Kim's rented room
Scot brings Kim some money to buy food. She tells him she really appreciates it. He tries to tell her she has to make some decisions. She says she's scared. Scott says he's worried about her and if she's going to have the baby, she can't just rely on Scott. Kim says Josie is coming over again later - she's hoping Josie can help her.
Outside Kim's block
The dodgy bloke on the motorbike enters the building.
Kim's rented room
Kim opens the door thinking it's Scott come back. The dodgy bloke turns out to be Brad. She doesn't want to let him in, but he talks her round. He tells her she should come back with him, but Kim wants to work things out for herself. Apparently Josie told Brad where Kim was. Kim isn't pleased. Brad says he was a bit out of line before, but he's got it all worked out now. He says Kim can have the baby if she wants to. He tells her to trust him and come back with him to the squat. She doesn't want to. Brad says she can check with Josie first.
Later at Kim's rented room
Josie comes round and Kim shouts at her for giving Brad her address. Josie says it was the best thing for her - Brad won't do anything to hurt her. Apparently he's going to sort out all their problems. Kim doesn't trust him because he lost his cool before.
Josie says the plan is that she has the baby - and then sells it! Josie is going along with this for her own pregnancy! Josie says it's the only way to go - people out there want kids and they don't(!)
An office in the city
Daphne is at work when her employer, Mr Evan s comes in. He touches her on the bum, much to her chagrin. He wants to know if Daphne is still working in the stripping industry. Daphne tells him to mind his own business - she can do what she likes outside working hours. Mr Evans threatens to tell the Managing Director. He says he'll take her out to dinner if she's not working. Daphne insists her relationship with him must be strictly business. Mr Evans says maybe another night, and implies that he'll sack Daphne if she doesn't have dinner with him.
Kim's rented room
Kim is explaining the selling babies racket to Scott. Kim has come round to the idea for herself(!) Scott is appalled, and is even more appalled to hear that Brad knows where Kim is.
SCOTT: I can't believe you can't see how wrong this all is.
Scott offers to leave school and get a job to help her, but Kim says there's no point them ruining both their lives.
Des's house is like a tip since Daphne has taken a full-time job. Julie says that most women can manage a full-time job and keep things clean as well. She starts cleaning up.
Daphne is just coming in and has heard what Julie said. She isn't pleased and storms off to her room.
Des is amazed - he's never seen Daphne angry before.
Julie asks Des if he'll come to a dinner next month with her, but he's engrossed in thought about Daphne!
JULIE: I don't know what you're getting so concerned about. She's just your tenant. Isn't she?!
Julie says that the gossip in the bank is that Des and Daphne are on together. Des tells Julie that most nights, Daphne whips off all her clothes and they make mad, passionate love on the kitchen floor. He says that he thinks Daphne was upset because she thought Julie wouldn't join them(!)
JULIE: That's sick.
She storms off, forgetting about the dinner date!
Jim is brooding about the situation with Shane. Helen tells him not to worry - Shane will be back. He goes on to muse that things have been quiet lately - especially Scott. Jim says he'll have a chat to him.
Julie comes in, moaning about Daphne.
Daphne is doing the dishes and moaning about Julie. She's also moaning about her boss.
DAPHNE: It all comes down to the age-old problem - sex.
DES: Oh. Well if it's not being too personal, could you be more specific?
DAPHNE: Oh, what's the point Des. You can't help.
Des looks a bit disappointed(!)
Daphne says that maybe she gives out a sex vibe(!) Des is appalled to hear about the situation with Mr Evans and tells Daphne to stand up to him - she'd be covered under the law. He says next time he says anything, Daphne should tell him she's calling a solicitor. Daphne thinks that Des has got a point.
Danny is trying to hang a net curtain when Max comes in and surprises him. Everyone is out, so Max gives him a hand.
They chat about Shane again. Danny wonders if Shane might be at the campsite they were at after Shane's accident. Max suggests Danny makes them a cup of coffee.
Shane has been swimming in the river. He comes back in his swimming tunks and bumps into a couple of girls. They offer him some breakfast, but Shane has eaten already. He decides to go off to the shops, and offers to get some groceries for the girls as well.
Scott is sitting at the kitchen table, deep in thought. Jim wants to know what's on his mind lately. He knows that Scott has been borrowing money, but that's not the point - the old Scott seems to have disappeared.
Jim says that the last time they had a conversation like this, Scott was worried about Kim. He says if Scott needs any help or advice, he only has to ask.
Shane has brought back a ton of groceries for the girls(!). They offer him some lunch in return. Over lunch, they chat about their lives - the girls left their jobs and took off to see Australia. They're going to make money by fruit-picking and stuff. Shane says it sounds great. The girls say he can join them if he wants - it would be good to have a man with them. Shane isn't sure though.
Just then, Max comes up. He asks Shane if they can have a bit of a talk.
By the river
Max talks to Shane about Danny's paternity - he knows he heard about it from Jim. But Max hasn't really come to talk about that - he's come to talk about Maria. Max still cares about Maria and he doesn't want Shane to blame Maria. Max has come to tell Shane the full story - it's not just Maria's fault.
