Outside the Water Hole
Charlene runs into a even chirpier than usual Henry and notices that he looks a little funny so checks for a cold or temperature. Henry tells her that he's in love with Bronwyn and insists that it really is true love for them. Charlene isn't surprised that he was all over Bronwyn the minute he saw her and thinks the relationship is hopeless and they probably have absolutely nothing in common. Henry insists that they have, she likes plants and he's a gardener. Before Charlene can retaliate she realises that she has to go as she's going flat hunting.
Gail is giving a man some letters, asking him if he could give it in to the hotel reception and telling him not to open them as they're very confidential.

Gail goes to find the list on Jane's desk while telling Charlene that Jane has taken a few days off of work.
Bronwyn is walking up the street along with Jamie in his pram. Henry sees her and ducks into his car to get a kangaroo mask. He jumps out at Bronwyn and Jamie, which makes Bronwyn scared and Jamie cry. Despite Henry's best efforts to impress her with 'Kanga man' Bronwyn is more concerned about Jamie crying. Henry apologises and asks if she wants to see his collection of 'Kanga man' comics. A polite Bronwyn decides to invite him in.
Lucy arrives through the front door with her bags while everyone comes rushing in to greet her. Beverly looks particularly funny when she runs from the kitchen with her arms open wide looking like an airplane.

Henry is reading Kanga man when Bronwyn start talking about the days she used to live in the country when she used to have 'tons' of kanga man comics. After Bronwyn asks Henry if he really is interested in comics Henry insists that he is as they're antiques, so why wouldn't he be interested although he's surprised that Bronwyn, who is a girl, likes them. Henry says that he is an honest, mature and sincere person which makes Bronwyn laugh. Henry decided to keep Bronwyn company while she does some house chores.
Des comes in and asks why Gail is sitting where Paul is meant to be so Gail explains that she and Paul have swapped jobs for a little while. Des says that he really needs Paul to sign the papers she has but Gail tells him that she'll do it as she's taken over all of Paul's responsibilities. Des asks where Jane is leading Gail to let him know that she knows everything that's happened so she's let Jane take a couple of days off of work. Gail tells him not to worry as she's sure that Jane will get over it. Before Des can carry on, Helen interrupts leading Des to leave. Helen invites Gail and Paul over for dinner tonight to welcome Lucy back. Gail wonders if maybe it'll be too much for poor old Helen as she'll be cooking for so many but Helen insists that she's 'superwoman'. Gail asks Helen for a favour, to temp while Jane is away. Helen happily agrees, as now she'll be able to get out of the house for a while.

Henry and Bronwyn are getting on like a house on fire, laughing and playing with Jamie together. He goes to read her palm, explaining about the love life line, the life line etc. He tells her that she's going to have a long and healthy life as well as encounter so romance, very soon.

Jim explains to Helen that he's worried about Lucy having a boyfriend at such a young age. Helen tells him not worry as kids always have a boyfriend or girlfriend at their age. Jim asks Helen if she'll be able to take Lucy to the dentist before her term starts back up again. Helen says she can't as she's filling in for Jane at Lassiters. Jim asks how she's going to cope doing the house work as well as filling in for Jane. Helen says that she loves being a part of the family, but she can't be doing everything around the house. She wants to be a part of the world rather than running errands all the time.
Des and Mike's
Bronwyn is upset about Henry reading her palm as she doesn't want to have a house, a husband or children yet as she's just arrived. She doesn't want Henry to tie her down to which Henry says that she'll be able to have a life of her own. Bronwyn explains that she needs to feed Jamie now so maybe he should go.

Henry doesn't reply, instead he explains that he has something important to do so he'll see everyone later.
Henry comes storming in and demands to know why the other gardener gets paid more than him. It seems as though Henry got the wrong pay cheque. Gail explains that it's company policy to pay workers who have been at the company longer.
HENRY: So I'll have to put up or shut up?
The phone rings, it's another worker wanting to ask about her pay. When Gail gets off the phone Henry threatens to go to the union which upsets Gail as he thought that they were friends.
HENRY: Oh so that's company policy too, friends get paid less?
The phone rings again. It's another employer asking about his pay rate. Henry goes to leave.
HENRY: It looks like all the salary letters got mixed up. I wish you luck, Gail. You're going to need it.
