Harold rings the council to report a taco seller who's been stealing all his customers.
Matt pops round to see Joe and sample Joe's home brew! Matt is settling in quite well at No.28 and he's getting on much better with Jim now they're only working together and not living together.
Kerry is getting some tree seedlings ready for planting. Matt tells Kerry that there's been some trouble in the National Park with trail bikes and offers to show Kerry the damage they've caused.
KERRY: Are you coming, Joe?
JOE: Oh, I promised Mother Superior that I'd put up some shelves.
MATT: You two talking again?
JOE: Oh, it's the old Mangel charm, mate. Eating out of my hand!
Joe doesn't think Dorothy is such a bad old stick after all. Matt and Kerry head off to the National Park.
Sharon is telling Eddie that he can't keep doing the taco stall - Harold will go mental.
Harold comes in ranting about the mobile taco stall. Eddie keeps a low profile and doesn't say anything.
HAROLD: Catering is a cut-throat business and this fellow doesn't have a licence. They put the weapon in my hand and I am going to terminate them!
Eddie goes off to make them all a nice cup of tea!
Joe and Dorothy are discussing the job and Dorothy warns him that some of the ornaments are quite valuable. She also tells him that one of the ornaments is cursed - if the chain around its neck is broken, bad things will happen to the perpetrator. Joe says he doesn't believe in curses, but Dorothy tells him seriously that it's no joke.
Kerry and Matt have arrives and are promptly approached by a warden who accuses them of dumping rubbish. They tells him that they're planting trees and the bloke says it's a lost job - the kids will just knock them down again. He says that no-one cares and the police won't help. He offers to show them the damage.
Eddie is feeling very guilty and is forced to confess to his "crime". He tells them how grateful he is to them for taking him in. But he is the "parasite" mobile taco seller.
Eddie explains that he had no idea that it would affect the Coffee Shop takings so dramatically. He does intend to travel, but he doesn't have any money at the moment. His partner in London has done a runner and left him with all the debts - he had to sell the cafe to pay them off. He's still got a few debts left though.
EDDIE: It's just I needed work and cooking's what I do best.
Sharon suggests that he gets a licence and moves to another suburb. But Eddie doesn't think he'll get a licence now that the council are involved.
The warden is showing Kerry the erosion at the park. She says that something has to be done and she'll be the one to do it. The warden laugh derisively and says that he doubts she'll be able to do anything. Kerry says she has something in mind - she'll go and have a talk to them and appeal to their better natures. The warden, whose name is Lester, doesn't think that'll do any good.
KERRY: Can I give you my phone number?
LESTER: Reckon I'm too old for you, love!
They laugh. Lester agrees to call Kerry what the trail-bikers are in the area next time.
Harold is still ticked off with Eddie and is ranting to Madge about him. He says they have to decide what to do. Madge suggests that Harold takes Eddie on and puts him on the payroll at the Coffee Shop - at least then Eddie could be an asset, not a rival. Harold won't consider it.
Lochie is playing with the African ornaments and Joe warns her to beware of the curse. As she plays, the chain comes off the ornament and she looks horrified. Joe picks up the ornament and thinks he's broken it himself. He decides to take the ornament home to solder the chain back on.
Harold has been looking at Eddie's mobile stand and seems to be coming around to the idea of taking Eddie on. Madge says it's a great idea for football matches, and for spreading the word about the Coffee Shop.
EDDIE: Two heads are better than one, Harold. We don't have to compete, we could amalgamate. We'd be partners!
Harold doesn't want to agree to a partnership with Eddie's record, but he offers to buy the mobile cart and then employ Eddie to run it. Eddie isn't sure but eventually agrees. Harold will get on to the council for a proper permit for the mobile stand.
Lochy asks Dorothy about evil spirits. Dorothy says that she was just teasing Joe - there's no such thing as evil spirits or curses.
DOROTHY: Some people belive in curses so strongly that they make bad things happen to them. But it's all in their minds.
Kerry is telling Joe about the kids in the park. He warns her to watch her step - some of the kids can be tough little nuts. Joe shows Kerry Dorothy's ornament. She knows about the curse and warns Joe playfully about African magic. He laughs, then falls over a toy. Then he falls over his toolbox and hits his head. He looks at the ornament in terror.
