Mrs Mangel tells Madge that Henry is not welcome in Ramsay Street following his release from prison. Madge tells Mrs Mangel that if there ever is a plan for a gangland killing in Erinsborough she will be the first to know! Charlene leaps to the wrong conclusion when she sees Scott with Sue Parker. Helen and Rosemary are reconciled after Helen's affair with Rosemary's fiancé Gerard.
Charlene is showing Henry around Erinsborough. Daphne asks Henry how long he expects to be in Ramsay Street and he tells her that he hopes to be a permanent fixture. She asks what Madge thinks of that and Charlene says that she is rapt. On hearing this Daphne officially welcomes Henry to Ramsay Street. They talk about “an old dragon” called Mrs Mangel and Henry tells Daphne that he remembers the Robinson's but there seems to be some sort of feud with the Mitchells. He does not know why he is not even allowed to say G'day to Scott. Daphne explains that there are a lot of people who are not too happy with Scott. Smiling, Henry cheekily thought it was ‘Lennie being jealous'. Talk turns to Sue Parker until Daphne realises that Scott is sat outside when he knows that she has banned him. She storms out to find him.
Outside the Coffee Shop
Sue Parker tells Scott that if he is no longer going out with Charlene he can go out with whoever he likes. Scott tells her that there is no “Us”. He was walking past the Coffee Shop and she had stopped him. Daphne sees them and tells Scott to clear off as he is not welcome. Sue defends him so Daphne tells her she can clear off too if she does not like it. Sue catches up with Scott and tells him that he should be grateful he has her as he has no one else. He snaps that he wants to be left alone as he walks home. Eileen Clark approaches. Scott wishes her g'day. With her nose in the air she ignores him. Eileen rants at Daphne that she does not want any more malicious stories as they nearly destroyed Daphne's marriage. Eileen tells Daphne that she is very fond of her and they hug. Daphne says that the Mitchell family rift is almost healed too with Henry and Charlene in the Coffee Shop. Eileen is dumfounded that Daphne would leave Henry alone…unattended…in the shop…With, ”he probably has his hands in the till right now” she barges past two customers in the Shop doorway.
The Coffee Shop
Charlene is at the open till behind the counter having just taken the money from the customers that Eileen had barged past. Eileen yells to Charlene to get away from the till accusing Henry of putting her up to this. She slams the till shut. Charlene explains to Daphne that the customers wanted to pay their bill and as she was not around Charlene had stepped in to help. Daphne thanks her. Trying to diffuse the situation Henry asks to be introduced.
DAPHNE: This is my rather outspoken mother-in-law, Eileen Clark.
Henry says that he is delighted to meet her but Eileen retorts that she cannot forgive the agony that his mother has been going through over him. Eileen does not believe Henry when he announces he has turned over a new leaf. Charlene chides her for pre-judging him. Clearly embarrassed, Daphne hurries Eileen out of the shop. Henry realises that he will have to get used to get used to reactions like that as he is now marked for life. Charlene apologises to Daphne before comparing Eileen with Mrs Mangel. Daphne warns that Henry will face more of that when he starts looking for work.
Rosemary and Helen emerge smiling from the inner office. Paul is clearly relieved. They warn him that it will take time to heal but they are getting there. Rosemary apologises for giving Paul a hard time and for bringing her emotional problems to work. She congratulates him for the hard work he had done which would have made the sale of Lassiter's Australian division relatively easy. Paul nervously fingers his collar. He admits that it would hurt to see it go to someone else. They go to make a call to finalise a deal.
Madge, Henry and Charlene are angry at Henry's treatment. Madge talks of a vindictive old cow. Charlene asks how someone like that can have such a great son. Madge pauses, confused as no one knows “her children”. They realise that Charlene had been talking about Eileen Clark while Madge was ranting about Mrs Mangel. Henry asks Madge if “two old gossips” were going to get her down. As Shane comes in Henry asks him if he can take him out and introduce him to the local talent. Shane says that he has plans and he would not let any girl he knows near him. Henry goes to unpack but Shane aggressively tells Henry to keep his gear to his side of the room. Henry tells them that in prison if you didn't keep your gear out of sight it would be nicked. With Henry out of the room both Madge and Charlene tell Shane to give his family some support as half the neighbours are suspicious of Henry. Shane reminds them that ever since they were kids Henry had walked off with everything of his that he took a fancy to.
Rosemary comes off the phone to tell Paul and Helen that everything is settled. Jack is going to see his solicitors straight away and she is going to fly over there to sign the contract. There is a small detail to be finalised: Jack has asked invited Lucy over to stay with Bradley as he has been missing her. Helen is not happy that Lucy seems to be being used as a pawn in Rosemary's business deals. Rosemary reassures them that it was not a condition of the sale and that Lucy could travel over there with her for a wonderful experience. Helen cautiously suggests that it will need a lot of hard talking to Jim as he will not like the thought of her travelling half way around the world.
Scott is trying to sketch Lucy but she insists on cuddling a wriggling Bouncer. She wants him in the picture but a frustrated Scott explains that he is trying to draw people, not animals. The doorbell rings and Lucy answers the door to find it is Sue Parker. She walks straight in and sits next to Scott admiring his portrait of Lucy and ignoring his protests that he is really busy. She suggests that he draws her. Flustered, he announces that he is not into drawing people… animals are his thing and Lucy pushed her way into that drawing. (Lucy sticks her tongue out at him). Scott tells Sue he would love to stop and chat but he has too much to do. She suggests that he might like to listen to her new album but he refuses telling her that they cannot be friends because she has done too many lousy things. No one is talking to him anymore. Sue protests that things are different now that they have left school. Scott suggests that she talks to Mike but she replies that she always preferred Scott to Mike. She almost begs him to give her a chance to show how much she likes him. Scott is flustered muttering about his hassles as he pulls open the front door suggesting that she comes back “some other time”. As she leaves she hands him the album saying that he can give it back next time they meet. Lucy tells Scott that he was a soft touch and that he should just have told her to Rack off. Scott shouts at her.
Charlene bumps into Sue as she is leaving and demands to know what she is doing. Sue points out that although the street is named after the Ramsays it does not mean they own it. Charlene teases her about reporting suspicious characters to the Neighbourhood Watch so Sue retaliates with a quip about having an ex-crim for a brother. She torments Charlene by telling her that she has just been to see Scott and has lent him an album “not that it is any of your business now that he has dropped you.” Charlene corrects her saying that she broke up with him. Seizing on this Sue triumphantly tells Charlene that she won't mind if she goes out with him then! Charlene says that Scott would not go out with Sue as he has more sense but she smiles as she replies that he has got enough sense to be glad that he has broken up with Charlene.
Henry sees Shane reading a gardening magazine and tells him that he sees himself as more of an entrepreneurial type. Without looking up Shane calls him a bludger- never having to do an honest days work in his life. Henry asks him to lighten up as he is upsetting Madge but Shane mumbles that Henry has been upsetting her from the day that he was born. Charlene storms in muttering about Scott and Sue. Henry is baffled as to why she cares if she broke up with Scott over the newspaper stories. Charlene denies that she is still keen on him saying that she just does not like seeing him make a fool of himself. Henry gently suggests that she goes over and makes it up with Scott but Charlene grumbled that Sue can have him and storms off in a strop.
Helen advises Paul that there is a Derek Morris to see him, but Paul has never heard of him. Derek is from a business magazine and wants to feature the Daniels Corporation in the first issue. Rosemary and Helen leave the office and Rosemary asks if she can move back to the Robinson's house.
Daphne and Eileen struggle in with bags of groceries to prepare for the meal that Daphne promised Madge and Harold. Eileen says that she feels sorry for Henry but warns Daphne not to invite him but she needs to think about Desmond's reputation. Daphne has not heard one word of the rant as she is reading a letter. She passes it over to Eileen. It is from Lorraine King explaining to Daphne that Des has handed her financial affairs over to another bank official. Lorraine feels that it was silly of her to have sworn him to secrecy in the first place. She never meant to hurt either Des or Daphne. It was also silly of her not to realise what a great guy Des is and that her loss is Daphne's gain. She ends by wishing them all the best for the future.
Helen and Rosemary agree not to say a word to Lucy before they speak to Jim but before they can take the bags into the kitchen Lucy rushes in repeatedly yelling “I'm going to France”. It turns out that Bradley had telephoned Lucy and promised to teach Lucy to speak French. Helen warns Lucy not to get too excited as Jim has not yet agreed. Lucy is convinced he will as it is educational. She tells Helen that she will need new clothes as all the women are "chick". Helen corrects her pronunciation and tells her that her clothes are fine.
Derek and Paul have just spoken about Paul's rise from airline steward to heading up the Australian end of the Daniels Corporation. They move on to ‘the man behind the executive' Derek mentions that Paul's marriage began and virtually finished while at the airline. Paul sternly says that his marriage is not part of the article. Derek asks if Terri's suicide was quite recent. Paul tries to stop the interview but Derek persists that he believes that Paul's refusal to visit Terri in prison is what lead her to commit suicide. Paul corrects him that the information is not for the public record and wants to know who told him. Derek refuses to name his sources and tells Paul that the suicide will form part of the article. He was giving Paul a chance to tell his side of the story.
DEREK: Under the circumstances it is going to look pretty damning to your business associates…
