At the Ramsays:
Tom reads the note again and says Scott must be behind this. It's the motel room incident all over again. He thinks Scott has gone off the rails because of the example he's been set by Jim carrying on with Zoe. Madge panicks that anything could be happening. Shane comes home and tries to calm things but they run out to the Robinson's to confront Jim.
At the Robinsons:
Jim is praising Nikki and the way she's gone home to look after her mum. He remarks that some kids turn out really well and Helen answers “including yours”. He smiles smugly, blissfully unaware of the Ramsay Hurricane blowing it's way across the street. He walks to the living room as Tom bursts through the back door demanding to know the address of the motel where Scott is staying. Jim asks what's going on and they tell him about Charlene. Helen points out that Charlene might not come back if she doesn't want to. Tom insists he'll drag her back if he has to. Madge admits that Charlene's note said she's run away and it might not be easy getting her to come back. She wants to ask the boys to talk her into coming back. Helen agrees and suggests they give Scott a ring. Tom refuses to leave until he sees Jim make the call.
At the Ramsays:
Shane tells Paul he spoke to the guys who let him down at work. Turns out they were offered more money to work for another company - a subsidiary of one of Lewis Fleming's companies. He warns Paul again that Debra is bad news and says Paul should check it out himself if he doesn't believe him. Paul doesn't need to check it out. He believes the word of a mate, and gives Shane his job back. He says he'll know by this time tomorrow if Debra's messing him about - he's set a trap.
At Clive's:
Clive is still obsessed with Daphne's wedding. Zoe tells him she's going back to work on Monday, she's sick of sitting at home bored.
At the Robinsons:
Jim finally gets through to Scott and tells him about Charlene. Scott is shocked and wants to know what's happened. Tom and Madge chip in as Jim tries to explain and insist that he doesn't lay a finger on Charlene. He protests that he's not stupid - and besides, Charlene's probably going to her old man's. Madge takes the phone and tells him she left a note saying she was going to Scott. Jim takes the phone back and asks him to act responsibly. He agrees, then hangs up. Tom is even more incensed that he hung up, but Jim assures him he will act responsibly.
Next morning, in Manly:
Scott comes up with a signal for the room - if a thong's on the door, then the other one doesn't go in. (I hope this is a case of lost in translation here and a thong means a shoe, not knickers…) The door goes and Charlene bursts in to a less than enthusiastic reception from Scott, who's worried he'll get in trouble off her folks, and Mike, who thinks she was silly coming up on her own. She protests that she's not on her own, she's got the two of them (Think I'd take my chances on my own, they've turned into dumb and dumber!) Scott thinks she should stay the day and go back tonight but gives in when she says she won't stay if she's not wanted, she has other places she can go - but makes her promise to ring her mum. She reluctantly agrees, but flatly refuses to go back.
At the Ramsays:
Madge is cooking to feed an army to take her mind off Charlene. She tells Danny about the drama last night. He points out that Charlene's over 16 and will be fine with Scott. Tom reckons they should jump in a car and drag her back by the hair - if they don't the next thing they know she'll be pregnant. Just the thing to say to calm Madge down. Danny points out that Scott's sharing with Mike, he can chaperone. This has a better effect on Madge, who agrees that he is a sensible boy (or was until Cassie came along).
In Manly:
Charlene has told Mike and Scott about Nikki and Mike is depressed. Scott reminds him about Cassie and Charlene is keen for all the juicy details, until she remembers Nikki's meant to be her best mate and she and Mike only just broke up…
At the Robinsons:
Jim is hoping that Scott handles the Charlene situation okay. Helen says they have to trust him. Shane interrupts to tell Helen that Paul's given him his old job back, and this means they'll need to re-arrange his driving shifts. Helen is delighted he has his old job back and agrees they'll discuss the driving later on.
In Manly:
Charlene is worried that Scott and Mike will be training all the time. Mike points out that that's why they're there - this isn't a holiday. Besides, she's not meant to be in their room and they don't want the coach to be suspicious. They discuss money and agree they'll have to pool their meals because Charlene has no money. Cassie pops up from behind a bush, shouting to Mike that she's been looking everywhere for him. They introduce her to Charlene who appears to take an instant dislike - maybe not surprising when Cassie points out that Lenny is a boy's name.
At the beach:
Mike and Cassie chase each other along the beach while Scott asks Charlene what she's got against Cassie, he thinks she's okay. Charlene reckons he fancies her himself. He protests and she says she can't stand phoney's - and Cassie's as fake as they come. Cassie and Mike run up and ask if they want to go for a drive. Charlene points out that Scott and Mike have training - this isn't a holiday (Where have I heard that before Mike?). Cassie and Mike won't be swayed and Scott agrees to cover for Mike.
At the office:
Zoe returns to work and finds a contract on her desk (that Paul has cunningly planted there seconds earlier) She chides Paul that he shouldn't leave things like this hanging around, it could cost them a lot of money in the wrong hands, passing his test with flying colours.
At the Ramsays:
Madge is disgusted with Tom who is eating tomato sauce on fried tomatoes. Tom is still harping on about going to Manly and forcing Charlene to come home. Madge has now realised it won't do any good and points out that the only time Tom volunteers to get involved with anything is when he knows he can get into a brawl. The phone rings and she answers it to Charlene who insists she is staying in Manly for a full week, then hangs up as Madge starts to lecture.
Back in Manly:
Cassie welcomes Mike to her humble little home, where a not so humble little man is setting up a dodgy photo shoot in her living room. She introduces him to Mike as a sleazy stunning photographer who has a key to her flat so he can set up while she's not there. Mike doesn't mind waiting while she does a quick photoshoot does he? Nope. He takes a seat as Cassie goes off to get changed, perching on a foot stool like a little boy. Cassie returns to the room in her dressing gown and Mike's eyes almost drop onto the floor when she whips this off ready to flash her bits at the stunning photographer.
