- Cheryl suggests training Rick as a bartender
- Len gives Helen an affectionate pat as he leaves
- Cheryl grounds Danni and Brett for life!
- Gaby has entered Mark in Miss Erinsborough
Danni tells Sassy on the phone that she's grounded for life and complains to Brett (who is bored and surrounded by paper planes) about Cheryl ruining her life. Sassy has asked her to practise with the Dribblers basketball team tomorrow. Brett warns her not to go and suggests asking the Willises if she can borrow Brad's old basketball hoop so the "Droolers" can come and practise here.
Gaby tries to convince an unwilling Mark to enter Miss Erinsborough. He'll be taking a stand against sexism. He doesn't want girls like Annalise degrading themselves in front of drooling old men, does he? Rick comes in and Mark is glad of the distraction, telling Gaby that Rick is moving in. Gaby says she could throw Rick out of the pub as he's under age but Rick says not only is he 18 but he now works here since Cheryl has just given him a job. Gaby won't let Mark get away; if he wimps out of the beauty contest she'll never respect his views again.
Doug tells Danni to help herself to the basketball hoop and any other junk of Brad's in the garage! Gaby arrives home. Cheryl has given her some of the other applications for the Lassiters manager's job so she can see what she's up against. She doesn't think she stands a chance. She gets a phone call from Sally who was her flatmate in Japan and is back in the country. They arrange to meet tomorrow.
Helen has got more of the job applications to look at and Debbie asks if it wouldn't be easier to just give the job to Gaby. Helen says it's not her decision. She gets a phone call from Len who has a surprise planned for her tomorrow.
DEBBIE: Gran, you're a deviant!
DEBBIE: Planning hot dates with that old rogue.
HELEN: Oh, not you as well.
DEBBIE: Sorry Gran, but he is gross!
HELEN: I will think you to keep your opinions to yourself, young lady. I shall see Len Mangel when and whenever I like, and I don't need this family's permission. Is that clear?
Brett finds Rick packing his clothes and asks what he's doing.
RICK: Oh no, your tidy streak must be infectious! I mean, for some strange reason I'm putting all my clothes into suitcases and filing all my books away into boxes! I mean that's really bizarre.
BRETT: You're moving!
RICK: Very good, Brett! How did you work that one out?
BRETT: You don't have to do that.
RICK: Yeah, you're right. I mean, you could pack everything for me and it would all be colour coded and alphabetical wouldn't it?
Brett apologises for accusing Rick of killing Jeffrey and asks him not to leave because of him. Rick says there are no hard feelings but he's looking forward to moving into a no adult zone. He tells Brett to feel free to come over and asks him if he wants to help him pack. Brett starts neatly folding Rick's clothes.
Doug is looking at the applications and is impressed but Gaby doesn't want to hear it. Doug says her old personal assistant job would still be available but Gaby doesn't want to take a backwards step. Mark arrives and tells Gaby he's decided to enter the competition.
GABY: You are now looking at the new Miss Erinsborough charity queen!
DOUG (confused): Queen?
Number 24 (next day)
Brett and Rick are exhausted from carrying Rick's bed across the road and Brett finds a pair of Rick's pants (along with various bits of rubbish) where the bed used to be.
Len passes Danni and her friends playing basketball.
Len arrives in a suit and boater and Helen feels underdressed. Len tells her he has an outfit for her in the car; she can get changed while he sets up the game… croquet! He invites Debbie to join them so Debbie makes a quick exit to play basketball outside.
Rick brings more stuff over and finds Brett hiding from the girls outside.
BRETT: Are you OK?
RICK: Why wouldn't I be? Oh, the Warratah girls! Yeah, rough as guts, eh?!
Brett doesn't want to go back out but Rick asks what Debbie would think about him being a wimp. Brett opens the door and one of the girls calls out for him to come and show them his hot bod. Rick pushes him out the door.
MARK: What is all the noise out here?
RICK: Oh, just some women going crazy over any male in sight.
MARK: Well how come you're not out there?
RICK: Oh puh- lease! Have you seen them? Ugh… bush pigs!
MARK: Rick, it's about time you realise there's more to women than just their physical appearance, mate.
RICK: Yeah, yeah, I know that.
MARK: And sexism isn't a joke and you'd wanna get with that if you're going to live around here.
RICK: Yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely right. It's time we put a stop to it.
MARK: Exactly, and that's why I've decided to enter the Miss Erinsborough charity quest. Wouldn't you like to see me walking around half- naked?
RICK: No! No… no thanks!
Rick rather overenthusiastically claims it's great that Mark's going to highlight the sexism of chicks running around in bikinis to see who has the best body, while a girlie calendar is hanging out of his bag on the coffee table! Mark decides Annalise shouldn't get away with it either and takes down her man calendar.
Gaby is teasing Annalise about the hot new contender in the competition when Sally arrives. She is going to be teaching Japanese. Gaby offers her a cut price rate on a suite at Lassiters.
Number 24 driveway
Debbie gets knocked over playing basketball. Doug is passing and claims it's a foul but the mouthy girls aren't interested in his advice and tell him to nick off.
Number 26 back yard
Doug is retuning a strimmer and finds Len and Helen dressed up and sipping champagne. He asks if anyone can join in but Len says they're fine thank you very much!
Number 24 back yard
The girls are lying on the grass after their game and Debbie complains about them not playing according to the rule book. Packo asks Danni if all her friends are this straight. Brett tries to get Debbie's attention but the girls all hear and start harassing him again. Brett tells Debbie they need a business meeting.
Helen and Len compliment each other on their croquet skills. Len wants to make a date to play it at the cricket club. He has to get going and tells Helen to keep the dress. He gives her a kiss on the cheek.
Annalise has a go at Mark for taking her posters down. Mark says he doesn't want to look at half- naked men all the time, and Rick (ironically wearing only a towel) feels the same. Rick leaves them to argue between themselves. Mark tells Annalise she's too into personal appearances and announces he's entering the contest.
ANNALISE: What? But you can't, you're a man!
Annalise looks confused.
Sassy tells Brett he'll never sell the seed cards and Sassy tells him he's sexy when he's angry. Debbie is annoyed and tells Sassy they're trying to get some work done. Gaby and Sally arrive (for no apparent reason) and Rick clearly takes a liking to Sally. Gaby asks them what they think about the merger.
GABY: I didn't think you knew. Warratah Tech is merging with Erinsborough High. All you guys are going to be going to the same school!
Sassy grins at Brett who looks horrified.
