Sue rings Scott and pretends to give him an appointment with someone famous in the music industry - Molly Meldrum.
Scott tells Jim excitedly about the appointment with Molly Meldrum. Jim tells him not to get over-excited - it's only a few weeks until his HSC. Scott says lots of people make millions from singing - like the Beatles(!)
Scott runs off to tell Mike. Jim tells Lucy he hopes Scott isn't in for a big disappointment.
The Coffee Shop
Daphne is surprised to see Des in the Coffee Shop. She accuses him of checking up on her and he admits he wanted to see how she was on her first week back. Des asks her to take a break this afternoon so they can spend some quality time together.
Coffee Shop Kitchen
Scott and Mike are telling Clive excitedly about the interview with Molly Meldrum. Clive advises them on their interview technique - he says they have to sell themselves. He suggests making a demo tape, but Mike says there isn't time. Clive says he'll borrow some equipment from his friend and they can record the song tonight! Scott and Mike are very pleased.
Scott and Mike are sitting bored while Clive fiddles with the equipment. They record a trial version with Mike on the keyboard and Scott on the guitar. Clive suggests adding drums - he plays along with them on his drum-kit very enthusiastically(!)
The phone rings and Clive pretends to be an answerphone and then puts the phone down(!)
Clive says he's going to be Scott and Mike's personal manager! They start recording Take 2.
The Coffee Shop
Daphne is on the phone to Eileen and trying not to laugh. Des comes in and Daphne tells him through giggles that Eileen has been telling them that she wants then to start a family - when the wind blows north it's a boy and from the south it's a girl. Des says he doesn't care which way the wind is blowing as long as the baby's healthy. Daphne tells him that Mike is out for the evening, so suggests they go home to spend a "quiet evening together"!
Clive, Mike and Scott are still recording and Scott and Mike are looking dejected - they think something's missing. Scott suggests some backing vocals, but doesn't want to ask Charlene because they are fighting. Clive tells him to ask her nicely.
At that moment there's a banging on the door and it's Mrs Mangel. She says she's been trying to phone Clive but kept getting the answerphone! She tells Clive off for the racket they've been making, but Clive says she's witnessing the birth of genius(!) Mrs Mangel says that her hearing is delicate and her wishes must be respected. She tells Clive to stop the noise.
Scott comes round to see Charlene. She not all that happy to see him, but Scott apologises for arguing with her. Charlene apologises too and says that the song sounds good. Scott asks Charlene if she'll do the backing vocals. Charlene thinks that's the only reason he came round to see her, but Scott says they do want her. Charlene asks him how much he'll pay her(!). Scott tells her off for being obstructive, just because she didn't get into the cheer squad. Charlene apologises and agrees to do the backing vocals.
Des and Daphne arrive home to the sound of music from Clive's. Mrs Mangel intercepts them and tells them that the music is a disgrace and wants to know what they're going to do about it. Scott and Charlene walk by at that moment and Des calls to them that the song sounds great(!) He tells Mrs Mangel that they're not doing any harm, but if they're still going at 9pm he'll tell them to stop then. Mrs Mangel is not impressed and says she'll deal with the situation herself.
Des and Daphne go up to the house. As they walk up the path, Des puts one finger up to test the wind direction!
The guys are now recording Take 12 and Charlene is giving them advice on the tempo of the song. Clive agrees to tone the drums down a bit.
Jim and Lucy are reading, but the sound of the music is coming through clearly from next-door! Lucy pulls cotton wool out of her ears and sits to talk to Jim. Jim explains that Paul is not very pleased with him and Helen at the moment. Lucy says she loves it in Ramsay Street.
LUCY: I hope I can stay here forever. Ruth too.
Lucy tells Jim pointedly that Ruth is nice and wants to know what Jim thinks of her! She says she thinks Jim should have a special friend like her and Bradley. Jim explains that sometimes people are hurt when something happens to special friends and it makes them reluctant to find another special friend.
Mrs Mangel storms in through the back door at that point and demands that he do something about the music!
LUCY: Everyone's a critic!
Mrs Mangel says he'd better stop the music now before hippies and groupies start hanging around the street. Jim says that he doesn't need Mrs Mangel to tell him his responsibilities as a parent, so she storms out.
Lucy says maybe she should lend Mrs Mangel her cotton wool!
The song is sounding pretty good now. Jim comes in and tells them that people are complaining about the noise, and also Scott has homework to do. Clive says that one more take ought to do it and Jim agrees. They start to record Take 25!
Des and Daphne are watching an old movie. Daphne asks if he's ready for bed, but Des says he's waiting to see the weather report, so he knows which way the wind's blowing(!)
The phone rings and it's Eileen. Also Mike comes in. He tells Daphne that he's going to bed early so they'll be ready for the meeting with Molly Meldrum in the morning.
DES: (in the background) A herbalist?!
Mike goes off to bed. When Des gets off the phone, he and Daphne head off to bed too.
Outside Molly Meldrum's house
Scott tells Clive and Charlene that he and Mike want to see Molly Meldrum on their own. Charlene is not pleased and Clive says they're making a big mistake(!)
Inside Molly Meldrum's house
Molly is listening to music. His secretary tells him that some guys are coming to clean the pool. Scott and Mike ring the doorbell at that moment, so thinking they are the pool-cleaning guys she tells them to come round the back.
Scott and Mike appear at the backdoor and tell the secretary that they've come for their appointment. Scott and Mike are aghast to hear that they know nothing about the appointment. Molly Meldrum says they are really busy and says that someone must have been pulling their leg.
