- Mark's dad talks about burying his mum
- Danni collapses, presumably into a diabetic coma, outside a nightclub. The police, thinking she's drunk, take her off in the back of their car.
- Michael frantically looks for Danni. He finds her bracelet on the floor.
- Helen reports that Michael isn't in his room.
Outside the nightclub
Michael is asking around about Danni. One guy remembers her, but hasn't seen her. Then he says maybe the police caught up with her.
Cheryl is ranting about Julie and Lou is calming her down. He takes he off to bed.
Michael rings and Brett answers it. He tells Michael that he and Danni should get home fast. Michael says Danni has gone missing and may be sick - he wants to tell Cheryl. Brett says he'll tell Cheryl.
Brett breaks the news and Cheryl hits the roof. Lou says it'll be fine - Danni has a medi- alert bracelet (but of course, she has dropped it)
The police bring in another girl and put her in a cell with Danni. Danni is unconscious, but the police think that she's sleeping.
Gaby pops round. Annalise is packing to go to Mark's parents place for the funeral. Gaby offers to drive her - she likes driving at night, and it will give her a chance to "think a few things through". Annalise gratefully accepts.
Mark's parents' place
Mark's dad (Dave) is playing his guitar. Mark sits down with him and they talk about his mum.
MARK: Dad...about the funeral. Is it OK to bury her here? Have you got permission from the authorities?
DAVE: Sally always loved that spot. She used to sit down there, listen to the creek.
DAVE: Where I bury my lady is no concern of theirs. They'd just interfere.
MARK: And what if they don't approve?
DAVE: It's not up to them. The Earth is free.
MARK: Not in their minds. There's regulations, Dad. Forms to fill out, permission to apply for. If you don't do it, I will.
DAVE: No, son. We agreed from the beginning not to let the establishment get us. All our ceremonies were private ones.
MARK: Are you saying you and mum were never married?! Officially?
DAVE: We always told you you were love children. Didn't you believe us?
Mark doesn't know what to think.
Cheryl is sorting through some drawers for something to do while worrying about Danni. Cheryl is frantic - Danni hasn't been taking her insulin and drinking would only exacerbate it. Lou agrees to get help.
Julie is up in the night making hot chocolate and Phil comes out too. They're very worried about Michael. Julie rants a bit about Cheryl and her children.
Just then, there's a knock at the door and it's Lou. He tells them that Michael has rung and Danni isn't with him. Julie says Danni has probably run off with another guy, but Lou tells her firmly that Danni could be lying in a diabetic coma somewhere.
LOU: She could die!
Danni still hasn't stirred and her cellmate eventually tried to wake her. She doesn't stir and she starts to shake Danni. She stirs a little.
CELLMATE: Oh, well. Not my problem.
Cheryl is on the phone to the hospitals to see if Danni has been admitted. She asks them to call her if Danni is brought in.
Annalise and Gaby are chatting. They talk about Mark, and also about Kris. Gaby does like Kris, but she's not sure she wants to move in with him.
Michael arrives - it's now .0am. He asks them if Danni is on the list of people who've been brought in tonight.
MICHAEL: Look, Danni is a diabetic, she could be sick. She could be in a coma.
POLICEMAN: I'll go and check with the duty sergeant.
Mark's parents' place (Dawn)
Gaby and Annalise have arrived. Annalise hugs Mark and they talk a bit about his Dad and the burial. Mark is worried that his mum will have to be exhumed and moved at some point if he doesn't get permission. He asks Annalise to keep his Dad occupied while he goes and sorts things out.
The policeman opens Danni's cell and lets Michael in. Danni is apparently barely breathing. Michael urges the police man to call an ambulance.
Gaby has arrived back and has come into work. Kris comes in.
GABY: I've made a decision.
KRIS: About us living together?
GABY: Mm- hm.
GABY: Well, it's really no great strain living with mum and dad, but I need to be independent. I think we should start looking for a house.
KRIS: For real, you mean it?!
He hugs her.
KRIS: This is just the best news, I couldn't be happier!
KRIS: There is a but.
GABY: Separate rooms, OK? At least for a while until after the baby, anyway. It's still really early in our relationship, Kris, and I'd prefer to keep things just as they are between us for now.
KRIS: Sure, I can deal with that.
He looks a bit disappointed though. They go on to talk about renting a house and look through the newspaper.
KRIS: This is all going to work out...fine!
GABY: I hope so. But, we're going to take it really slowly, OK?
KRIS: Whatever you say.
Brett is getting ready for school when Cheryl and Lou come in. Danni has been admitted to hospital and is now stable, but she's staying in today while they run some tests.
Cheryl says she's heading off to work, despite Lou's protestations that she's bee up all night.
Kris is making a house appointment for 11am.
GABY: It couldn't be that easy, could it?
KRIS: *Everything* is going to be easy for us.
Cheryl comes in to look at the personnel files, as she needs a new bar manager. Cheryl tells her about the events of the previous night. As she's telling Gaby, Gaby is reading a bill for the photography. She shows it to Cheryl - the full amount has been charged to Lassiter's, when it was supposed to be split four ways.
CHERYL: I hope he's not using his friendship with you to rip us off.
Gaby looks worried.
Michael arrives back in a foul mood and pushes a few bins over.
Phil and Julie are having breakfast when Michael comes in.
PHIL: I think you owe us an explanation, don't you?
MICHAEL: Couldn't it wait, I'm so tired, let's just...
JULIE: No! We have had a dreadful night thanks to you, Michael! You disobeyed us, went out drinking, risked Danni's life! And caused all sorts of trouble with her mother.
PHIL: We've tried to be patient with you Michael, we've tried to make allowances, help you re- adjust, but this! This is the last straw.
Cheryl is having trouble finding a new bar manager.
Just then, Kris comes in, so Cheryl makes herself scarce.
Kris tells Gaby that he's bought a cot/change table for the baby. Gaby just shows him the bill for the photography. She called the other companies - Kris has multiplied by four, not divided, and charged all four companies the same price.
KRIS: Gaby, I can explain...
GABY: Well, don't bother! You thought that because of our relationship, I'd let it slip on through.
GABY: Kris, you told me I could depend on you, that I wouldn't regret my decision to live with you. And I already do!
