Lou kisses Madge passionately as Harold looks on. When Lou finally lets go of Madge she shows him over to Harold. Lou asks 'Jelly Belly Bishop' if he remembers him. Harold does and asks Madge if this is the man she was with in Brisbane. When she says yes Harold walks out.
Madge: Harold Bishop sometimes I could murder you!
Charlene emerges from her room and Lou turns on the charm. He has presents for everyone and wants to meet the boys.
Gail and Paul are having dinner with Jim and Beverly. Paul and Gail need a backer for part of the Udigawa deal. They are running a competition to see which of them finds a backer first. Paul's curious to see what talents bring in the business; his brilliance or Gail's good looks. The conversation turns to kids and Jim makes it clear once more that there will be no more mini Robinsons.
Charlene is enthusiastic as Lou dishes out the presents but Henry is slightly wary. Madge is upset about Harold and runs out to talk to him. Lou makes a snide comment about Harold and Charlene agrees with him saying that Harold doesn't deserve Madge.
Harold is as furious as......well as furious as Harold gets. Madge tries to explain things to Harold and tells him she didn't know Lou was coming to stay. She tells him Lou is in Erinsborough on business. Harold is keen not to relive the schoolyard scraps and wants Madge to avoid Lou. She refuses and tells Harold he needs to let bygones be bygones.
Lou leaves and tells Madge he's staying at Lassiters. Lou plants a kiss on Madge's lips leaving Charlene, Henry and Scott speechless. Charlene thinks Harold is on the way out. Henry thinks there's something about Lou, which is not quite right - he reminds him of someone he never trusted.
Beverly comments that Paul and Gail look very happy and asks Jim how he feels about becoming a Grandfather should the IVF be successful. He tells her it will take some getting used to. Beverly asks if he could get used to being a father again. She has been thinking about having a baby but Jim says she wouldn't be able to drag herself away from the surgery long enough to have a baby.
Harold and Madge are arguing about Lou. She is still refusing to cut her ties with Lou.
Jim is meeting Paul for a game of squash. Beverly tells Jim she's changed her mind about having a family, she does want a baby and the sooner the better.
Charlene is telling Tony about Madge and Harold. She is sure Lou is good enough for Madge and plans to do something about it.
Jim tells Beverly he doesn't want to raise a family again. He is surprised she's changed her mind given that they decided not to have kids when they married. He tells her to wait, as within a few years she'll probably be a Grandmother. Beverly's not convinced she can wait that long.
Tony is practising for the dance competition. Lou calls the garage and invites Charlene to lunch. They arrange to meet at The Coffee Shop. When Charlene hangs up she realises she made a mistake by agreeing to meet Lou at Harold's workplace.
The Coffee Shop
Paul asks Jim what he's going to do about Beverly. Jim says he's not backing down. Paul says this sort of thing can break up a relationship and says Jim should think about it.
Lou arrives and stirs up Harold. Harold asks him to leave but Paul steps in and says Lou is a guest at Lassiters. Harold reluctantly serves Lou whilst Lou and Paul talk business.
Henry and Scott are overrun with gardening jobs. Henry wants half an hour off to buy some concert tickets. Scott doesn't have much choice in the matter.
Lou wants to advertise his company 'Carpenters Cars' at Lassiters. Paul isn't sure but says he'll think about it. Gail and Madge arrive and Paul introduces Lou to Gail. Lou tells Paul that he, Madge and Harold went to school together and says there is no love lost between he and Harold. Lou tells Paul and Gail that Madge Ramsay is the woman he is going to marry.
