Outside The Coffee Shop
Mrs Mangel tells Harold ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers' has just been released, and asks if he would like to watch it with her tonight. Harold says he can't make tonight as he has too many ‘Dear Georgette' letters to get through. He says it's a great pity about the video and starts singing a song from the musical! Mrs Mangel compares Harold to Howard Keel from the film and comments that in those days men were real men and didn't have to hide behind a secret identity. Harold asks her not to question his masculinity but as he walks off she informs him the ‘bow' on is apron is loose.
Jim and Scott arrive and Jim tells Jim the subject off Ross is closed. Mrs Mangel asks Jim if she can be of any help!
The Coffee Shop
Jim arrives and Des and Harold tell him they are sorry to hear about the fire. Des tells Jim he will sort out some bank statements for him if it will help him with insurance claim. As Jim is leaving Rob arrives, he asks him to come by the house tonight so they can have a chat. Rob tells Harold he has paid back the money he lost last year and lectures Harold on the dangers of gambling.
Scott is telling Paul what happened with Jeff. He's sure Jeff is just too scared to speak up. Paul agrees with Scott that Ross is crook and says if he were doing the deal for the good of the company he would have told Jim. Paul says they need evidence.
Paul: I don't know about you Scotty but no one's going to swipe my inheritance without a good fight.
Jim and Rob are having a beer. Jim tells him about the problems at the garage and asks if he knows of anyone who could do the job, Rob offers to do a few days work to help Charlene clear the backlog. Paul and Des arrive with the bank statements for Jim. Des points out that the bank account has been rapidly decreasing; all they have left is $2.48.
Harold is going through the ‘Dear Georgette' letters and offers Mrs Mangel a read. She reads the letter out loud much to Harold's annoyance. The letter is a follow up to a previous problem and as a result of Harold's advice a man has lost his job! Mrs Mangel says she hates to tell Harold that she told him so but….she told him so.
Des leaves and Jim puts the money situation down to bad bookkeeping. Paul tells him all the withdrawals have been in cash and wants to know what Jim is going to do about it. Jim says he doesn't want to do anything until they know all the facts. Ross arrives and Jim tells him they need to talk.
Charlene and Scott spot Ross' car and realise he must be seeing Jim. They make their way to the house and as they pass Ross' car they spot the door is unlocked. They decide to break into the briefcase and get the evidence they need.
Jim is chucking all kinds of questions at Ross and he has an answer for everything. Jim wants to know what has happened to all the money.
Charlene wants to know what happens if they get busted. Scott is sure they'll get Henrys old cell! They get the briefcase out but they can't undo it.
Ross tells Jim he has two sets of figures; the ones Jim has seen and ones he has at home. Paul speaks up and is fed up of Ross lies. Scott and Charlene enter holding the red diary. They hand it over to Jim.
Jim has all the evidence and Ross confesses, saying being ‘pegged' by two kids is very humiliating. Ross says he and his wife have been living beyond their means for years. He's been conducting deals for years and was sure it would all pay off in the end but it didn't. He admits he got someone to torch the engineer works.
Harold arrives and tells Mrs Mangel he has resigned from the Erinsborough News. He is no longer ‘Georgette'. Mrs Mangel is shocked and wonders what Madge will say when she learns the extra income will no longer be coming in. She tells Harold he should break the news to Madge before she hears in from someone else. When he leaves she picks up a copy of the paper and heads to the telephone.
Ross is apologising and asking Jim for forgiveness. Jim pities him and says he is a shadow of the man he thought he knew. Jim goes to call the police but Ross begs him not too, only Jim and his family know the truth and f he calls the police he won't see a penny of the insurance money.
