- Colin arrives at Dorothy's with a bottle of French champagne
- Christina receives a bunch of flowers and the card reads, "You've been warned. Next time it'll be a wreath."
Glen and Lucy are having breakfast. Lucy wants to do something this afternoon, but Glen is working at the Waterhole. He doesn't want to go out tonight either. He makes a sharp exit, looking uncomfortable.
Toby is just leaving for school, but Joe calls him back to have a talk to him. He tells him he doesn't want him hanging around with Ben - he's trouble. He says it's time that Toby takes responsibility for his actions. He's got a pot plant for the twins to say sorry.
Cody tells Melissa that she should really break the news to Josh about the move to America soon.
MELISSA: Do you think he'll be really, really upset?
CODY:(nods) Totally destroyed.
Just then, Josh and Todd rush in, in high spirits. Cody drags Todd off so Melissa can talk to Josh. She can't get the words out though because Josh tells her that Melissa can come with him and his family on a little holiday to get over the accident - maybe to Tasmania. Melissa says her olds have made other plans, but she'll talk to them.
Doug comes in.
CODY: I remember you, you're my Dad, right?!
Doug asks if they know about an explosion at the science lab and they all jump guiltily.
DOUG: I hope you're as innocent as you're trying to look. She [Dorothy] wants you in her office first thing. Good luck!
Helen and Dorothy are having a cup of tea. Helen's leg is still troubling her and it's mad at the Robinson house. Dorothy tells Helen that Colin stayed over, but Helen shouldn't get the wrong idea. She let him stay the night because he drank too much champagne.
DOROTHY: He slept in Ryan's room all night.
HELEN: I believe you.
DOROTHY: After all that man has put me through, it'll take more than a bottle of champagne to get our relationship started again.
Helen and Dorothy are walking along and chatting about the explosion at the school. Helen mentions that Jim once tried to distill alcohol too. In the background, Toby staggers across the street with a large pot plant.
Joe knocks on the door and the policeman answers. He explains that Toby has brought the girls a pot plant. He tells them about the flowers and the threatening note and Joe is shocked. The policeman implies that it was Joe or Toby that delivered them.
POLICEMAN: Now listen, both of you. Just keep away from the twins for now, right? They don't need any hassles. And remember, I'm keeping an eye on everything that goes on around here? Clear?
They hand the plant to the policeman and head off.
Outside Dorothy's Office
Cody, Melissa, Todd and Josh are anticipating their execution at Dorothy's hands. Dorothy comes along and shows them in. She wants to know who was responsible, especially as Josh is quite scientific.
DOROTHY: Now, who in your class would have the inclination and ability to build their own still?
JOSH: I can't think of anyone.
She sends them off to class, warning them to let her know if they find out anything at all.
DOROTHY: If I find out you're keeping anything from me, then heaven help you.
They all troop out.
Outside the Waterhole
Lucy has brought Glen a sandwich for his lunch. He tells her she shouldn't be hanging around - the pub is licensed. He thinks she should hang out with guys in her class instead of him.
Doug drops by as Joe is watching a gardening show on TV. Doug asks Joe how business is going and asks if he knows anyone who needs any building doing. He tells him rather desperately that he could push his customers for extra jobs. Joe says he'll keep his eyes peeled.
Outside the Coffee Shop
Josh tells Cody and Todd that they have to sit tight about the explosion - Dorothy and the rest have no evidence. Melissa comes up and says that Dorothy wants to see them in her office right now.
Outside the Waterhole
Lucy is trying to get Glen to do something with her at the weekend, but Helen comes up and tells Lucy she shouldn't be on licensed premises. She makes Lucy promise not to go there in future.
Dorothy asks if any of them have heard anything since this morning. They say they haven't. Dorothy is very suspicious, but can't get them to break. She says she'll have to punish the whole of Year 11 instead. All priviledges will be cancelled as of now, including the cancelling of the end of term dance and one hour extra homework each evening. She asks them to pass the message on to their classmates(!)
Outside, Josh suggests a mass suicide(!)
CODY: If we own up, we get suspended, maybe worse. If we don't own up, the whole of Year 11 gets to hate our guts!
Helen is on the phone to Christina, seeing how Caroline is (they told her she was ill as a cover story for why she isn't at work!). Lucy tells Helen she should be resting and takes Glen's washed clothes off her.
Lucy barges into Glen's room while he's changing. He isn't happy.
LUCY: Where are you going?
LUCY: Where to?
GLEN: None of your damned business, just leave me alone!
Melissa has come to confess to Dorothy that she caused the explosion. Dorothy is very doubtful, but Melissa says she was just trying to impress Josh, because he is into science.
DOROTHY: Are you aware how serious this is? It'll have to go on your school report.
MELISSA: Well, it's my fault, I have to wear it.
DOROTHY: In that case, I have no other option that to accept your admission of guilt.
The Year 11 privileges will be restored, and Dorothy will see Melissa's parents. Dorothy still doesn't look entirely convinced, though.
Glen and Joe are having a beer. Joe observes that Glen looks a bit worried and he admits that it's a bit crowded at the Robinsons.
JOE: Want to get something off your chest?
JOE: Come on, mate.
GLEN: I don't know if I can handle living there anymore, mate.
JOE: I thought everything was hunky-dory in the Robinson house?
GLEN: It is, it's great, it's...it's Lucy.
JOE: She's a good girl, eh?
GLEN: Yeah...the only trouble is, I think she's fallen for me, if you know what I mean.
JOE: Oh, she'll get over that mate, it's just a phase. Unless...oh, you're not saying? Oh, that's tough mate, but you'd better get out of that quick-smart.
GLEN: Yeah, well I told her to back off.
JOE:(serious) Yeah, well, that's right. You just imagine it. Now I tell you what, you listen to me, you listen to me because I'm fair dinkum - you'd better watch it around Jim. Cos if he hears you talking like this, he'll tear you limb-from-limb.
Cody, Josh and Todd are incredulous that Melissa has confessed to the explosion, but Melissa says it doesn't matter.
MELISSA: Think of it as a going-away present from me to you.
Cody drags Todd off.
MELISSA: You know I really care about you, don't you?
JOSH: Yeah...and I really care about you and...
MELISSA: Ssh. Just listen. There's something I've been trying to tell you for ages, but I kept putting it off. Dad's got a job in the States and we're all going over there to live. So I'm...leaving Erinsborough.
Glen comes in to find Lucy in the living room, in an empty house.
GLEN: I needed some space.
LUCY: Me too. It's a bummer isn't it?
He looks at her.
GLEN: What is?
LUCY: Look, I liked you before I even knew we were related. And I'm scared, Glen.
GLEN: But there's nothing going on, so what's the problem?
LUCY: Isn't there? The least you could do is be honest with me. You can't handle it because you really like me.
GLEN: Now, that's not true.
LUCY: Isn't it? Well?
GLEN: All I know is, it's not right.
LUCY: And all I know is, I love you. What are we going to do?
