Josh is revealed as a stripper at Helen's hen night.
Joe and Jim are trying to organise Michael's bucks night.
JIM: What about we organise a darts night?
JOE: Darts? Mate, this is the poor bloke's bucks night!
Joe starts going through possibilities like getting Michael drunk and putting him on a train to Brisbane(!)
JIM: Joe - a) Michael isn't the type to get full b) if we do that, Helen will kill me and c) she'll come after you and kill you!
They are both stumped.
Lucy and Josh come in. Lucy is laughing her head off and tells Glen all about Josh being the stripper at the hen night. Glen is actually quite impressed but then Jim comes in and is rather less impressed(!) He tells Josh that he has to quit the job immediately and sends them all off to bed.
Number 22, the following morning
Paul is pleased to see that his house is all in one piece after the hen party. Christina is still sulking about the Lassiter's Girl thing and refuses to make Paul any breakfast.
Jim is inviting Doug to Michael's bucks night. He agrees, but tells Jim that he has to go to Bahgee to sort Brad out. He lies at first saying it's nothing serious, but finally admits that Brad is in jail on a drugs charge. Jim is horrified - the penalty for drugs offences are huge in Bahgee. Doug asks Jim not to tell anyone, and also asks him to keep Pam's spirits up while he's away.
Paul is having breakfast in the Coffee Shop, but it doesn't look very appetising(!) Joe is still covering for Harold and invites Paul to the bucks night. He asks Paul to think up some ideas for the bucks party.
Lucy comes in and tells Paul that she wants to be friends again - the stuff with Glen is in the past now. He agrees and gives her a hug.
Josh comes over to see Dorothy.
DOROTHY: Ah, it's Gypsy Rose Lee!
Josh asks Dorothy to smooth things over with Jim so he can keep his job - maybe Dorothy can make Jim see reason.
DOROTHY: Reason? Now listen to me, Spartacus, I absolutely agree with Jim!
Dorothy thinks stripping is pretty unhealthy for a 17 year old boy, especially one of her students. Josh points out that Dorothy was the one who booked him in the first place!
DOROTHY: I've set a very bad example, Josh. I may give myself a hundred lines!
Josh decides he doesn't want a lift to school after all and slinks off, fed up.
DOROTHY: Don't be late for class or I'll confiscate your G-string!
Doug and Jim are having a sandwich and talking about the trip to Bahgee and Harold's heart attack. They can't believe that it happened to Harold as a vegetarian and a non-drinker. They muse that if it could happen to Harold, it can happen to anybody. The phone rings and it's the Erinsborough News accusing Brad of being a drug-trafficker! Doug is not impressed and slams the phone down. Then the phone rings again and it's the passport office. His and Pam's passports have finally come through.
Dorothy is having a cappuccino which having been made by Joe does not look very tempting(!) Caroline and Christina are also at a table chatting about the Lassiter's Girl promotion - Christina is still determined to by the Lassiter's Girl. She asks Joe to do her a favour.
Lucy wants to come to Michael's bucks party. Jim arrives home with some beer and Josh tells him he's quit his job - at least he's made enough money for the computer software he wanted though. Lucy tells them she's got a part-time job too, but won't tell them what it is.
Paul answers the phone to Joe pretending to be a French bloke. He says he's a photographer and wants to take photos of Christina, especially now she's pregnant(!)
The bucks party has started and Jim is trying to get rid of Lucy - women aren't allowed at bucks nights! Michael finally arrives and thanks Jim for organising the party. Joe suddenly gets an idea and pulls Jim into the kitchen.
JOE: Jim, I've got a beauty this time!
JIM: We're not going to shave off his eyebrows!
JOE: No! It's even better...!
Caroline tells Christina that Paul was impressed by the phonecall and she reckons Christina will definitely be the next Lassiter's Girl! Paul comes in and tells her about the French photographer. Christina pretends to by surprised(!) Paul says she can't be the Lassiter's Girl because she would be lowering herself from her international career(!)
Joe is telling Michael wild stories about "Helen's tattoo" just to wind him up(!) Doug tells Jim that he's just heard he has a flight to Bahgee, so he heads off to pack.
JOE: Have you let her back in the cocktail lounge?
PAUL: No, she's still banned for another couple of years. I know it seems tough, her being my own grandmother and all, but you start letting one person strip in the cocktail lounge, you have to let them all, haven't you!
JIM: Starkers! Sad, really.
Caroline is taking some test photos of Christina who is dressed in a nice red dress. Lucy comes round and tells them she's made up with Paul, and also that he gave her a job.
LUCY: You are looking at the new Lassiter's girl!
Michael tells Jim in the kitchen that the guys pranks have made him realise how little he knows Helen.
JIM: Well, as long as you love her that's all that matters.
MICHAEL: That's not enough. I don't want any more shocks in my life. I appreciate how you've invited me here tonight. But I'm afraid I can't go through with this wedding.
