He's had two serious buyers – Suzanne and another guy who has come out as an unsavoury character.

Whacker takes the $200 off Joe. Joe walks over to Eddie who's just given out all the money he owes to people. He's made a $45 profit. So he thinks anyway, unit Paul wants his payment - $60.

Clarrie asks Beverly where she's from, and she says she's Jim's wife, from number 26. Clarrie looks surprised – he didn't know! He asks her not to say anything to Helen about this.
Harold is trying to spy on the man he thinks is the buyer for Des's half of the shop. Gemma comes in very happily, telling Eddie that if you don't smile your mouth heals up – he laughs. Harold goes over to see the man and asks him if he can pass on a message to Des. The man says he's got lots of time – he's on a low at the moment. He starts talking about the potential for the shop – it could be expanded outside and move the back wall back. Harold says he's not interested.
Joe's brought home some sort of gym equipment, where you end up being upside down – Tby thinks it's brilliant but Joe doesn't look too keen!

Clarrie has come round to see an unenthusiastic Helen. Clarrie explains that he's worried about Ryan – who's working too hard. For this reason, Clarrie told him to throw a party but obviously he wants to keep an eye on it so would it be OK if he came over Saturday night, just to keep an eye on things without being in the way. Helen tries to protest but gives in and says OK. Clarrie flatters her, calling her an angel.
Outside the Coffee Shop

GEMMA: We both go to “that public school”.
Gemma takes Ryan's order and walks off, bumping into Matt on her way. He's got an estimate for the repairs and they can save $100. She kisses Matt on the cheek, thanking him. Ryan looks on from his table. He invites Annabel and Roland to his party, asking Annabel to be his date, just loud enough for Gemma to hear.
