- Michael is back to take Danni to the Ball
- Everyone is dancing in the Ball. Cody and Sassy get into a scrag fight, followed by their partners!
- Doug tells Cody that her dress was made by her great- grandmother for Pam.
- Brett kisses Debbie.
- Lou finds thousands of dollars under the house.
Brett thinks the money must be Sam's but they have no idea how the money got there. Lou says he'd better have a word with Sam - there have been some weird goings- on since Sam turned up. He decides to take the money inside for safe keeping. Danni and Michael start dreaming about what they could do with $6,000!
DANNI: Do you still have to go back?
DANNI: OK, it'll only be for a couple of weeks. I won't spend any of the money until you're back, I promise(!)
They hug, but Michael's face is sombre.
Gaby has been sewing in her room. She tells Pam that she's got a great room in the birthing centre and the whole family can stay if they want to!
PAM: You still haven't been through all the nesting rituals yet.
GABY: Nesting rituals?
PAM: Mmm. You'll be cleaning out the cupboards and renovating the nursery and scrubbing the floors...
GABY: Mum, I might be pregnant, but I'm not demented!
Cody comes in.
CODY: Sure about that?!
Cody reports that Doug is still grumbling and wants Pam to go and visit him. Pam says she'd planned to seek out the video of the Deb Ball this morning and Cody suddenly looks worried! She offers to go and get it from Phil's before Pam has a chance to get it herself!
Gaby is a bit sad about being away from work.
GABY: It's like I'm giving up one baby for another, really.
Cody is showing Debbie some CDs from the US that Drew send her.
CODY: He still writes, he wants to be friends.
DEBBIE: He does'nt deserve a friend like you.
CODY: Oh, yeah, good friend I am, I really helped *you* out(!)
CODY: Oh, you know your eating and stuff. I knew you were torturing yourself and I just stood by and watched it happen, I should have known...
DEBBIE: Oh, look, no- one else did, how could you?
CODY: When you were paranoid about your weight, and I just made fun of you. I feel really awful about that.
DEBBIE: Yeah, well, that makes two of us. Some of the things I've done, the way I've treated you guys...
CODY: Yeah, but you weren't yourself. We know that now.
DEBBIE: Yeah. Well, at least it's out in the open. Might help me to deal with this thing. I don't know.
CODY: Yeah, it will. And I'll be there for you this time.
Michael Danni and Brett are hanging out. Danni strums her guitar and moans that the strings are worn out. Michael says she could boil them to put life back into them.
Just then, they heard a screech of tyres outside and see a VW Beetle pull up. It turns out to be Sam, still with Squirrel(!)
Sam literally falls out of Squirrel's car.
SQUIRREL: Thanks for a top night!
They apparently slept in the car so Sam has put his back out! (Last of the ravers!) Squirrel screeches off while Danni, Michael and Brett call Sam a "stud"! Sam strops into the house.
Brett and Danni come in, still teasing Sam. Lou shows Sam the money and Sam looks a bit shifty. Lou asks him if he knows who it belongs to - if he doesn't, he'll have to involve the police.
Michael and Debbie are hanging out, listening to some of Cody's CDs.
MICHAEL: So, are you going to miss everyone, from school?
DEBBIE: Come on, it's only the start of the holidays!
MICHAEL: You know what I mean, when you go into the clinic.
DEBBIE: That makes me sound like a mental case. Yeah, I suppose I will. It'll be good to get away. I can't hack it at the moment.
MICHAEL: What, you're getting hassled? The other kids, or Julie?
DEBBIE: Everyone. They watch me all the time. You know, whenever there's food around, it's like they're counting every mouthful. But I guess the clinic will help me deal with that.
MICHAEL: Well, I'm glad you're going, it can only make you better. So, give it a chance, OK?
DEBBIE: I wish you'd been here, you know, when I was going through it.
MICHAEL: Yeah, I know.
DEBBIE: So...what's it like out Bush?
MICHAEL: Oh, Deb, it is unreal. There's heaps of work to do, but it's what I *like* doing, you know?
He gushes about building techniques and how it's the best thing he's ever done.
DEBBIE: You've been about ten times happier since you've been back!
MICHAEL: That's why I've decided to stay on.
DEBBIE: Yeah? You can do that?
MICHEAL: Absolutely, well, the school is going to accept me, and I can probably get some part- time job working on this old homestead. It's like my life is finally working out.
DEBBIE: What about your love life? You haven't told Danni, have you? Michael!
MICHAEL: I know. I'm going to. Somehow.
SAM: Look, can we talk about this later when I'm a little bit more together?
LOU: Look, mate, it's not *hard*. Do you know about this money or don't you?!
SAM: What makes you think that I *do*?
LOU: Well, for starters, the look on your face when you saw it.
DANNI: We were pretty freaked out ourselves.
SAM: Yeah...oh, now I know.
SAM: Where I've seen that bag. It's my Nan's.
LOU: Your grandmother's?
SAM: Yeah. Silly old duck likes to keep all her dosh stashed away. Doesn't trust banks, you see. I remember her telling me she was going to send it over here. Now, look, I'm sorry about this guys...
LOU: *All* this belongs to your granny?!
SAM: I keep telling her it's not safe, but when did she ever listen to me? I'll take care of it now.
He starts putting the money back into the bag.
BRETT: Hang on. This doesn't quite add up.
LOU: No, it doesn't. Are you saying this was amongst all your junk your mate Simmo stored somewhere else?
LOU: Wherever. And that it accidentally returned with my stuff that was accidentally taken away in the first place...
BRETT: ...to Kalgoorlie.
LOU: And then mysteriously arrived via a totally unrelated delivery from your Nanny...and was dumped under my house.
SAM: ...I'm sorry, what was the question?
LOU:(exasperated) Mate, is that your money or isn't it?!
SAM: No! I mean, yes. It's my nan's, I told you.
They just look at him.
SAM: She's a very strange lady, when you meet her you'll know what I mean, OK?
Gaby is trying to mend the dress before Pam sees it. Cody tells her she's a total lifesaver.
Just then, there's a knock at the door. Cody answers it to Brett. He asks if he can hang out with them for a while as he's hiding from Lou.
Just then, there's a knock at the door again and Lou shouts through that he's looking for Brett.
BRETT: Oh, no.
CODY: What have you done?
BRETT: Well, nothing, yet. He wants me to help move all Mum's furniture.
GABY: You lazy thing!
Cody rats Brett out by opening the door to Lou!
Sam is on the phone telling someone that he doesn't want anything to do with the money. He tells them to get rid of the stuff and quick.
Danni has overheard some of this conversation and tells Sam she wants the full story. He insists that it's not dodgy.
SAM: A friend of Nan's had an electrical shop that went bust. Nan bought all the stuff, that's what she does: buys and sells things.
He asks her not to ask any more questions - it's best that she doesn't know.
Gaby has done a great job on the dress. They decide to pack it up in tissue. Cody realises she's forgotten to get the video off Debbie.
Sam is trying to watch TV using a coat hanger as an aerial. Lou moans at Sam and Danni for not helping with the move. He's surprised to hear she boiled the strings of her guitar - that applies to nylon strings, not metals ones(!)
She mutters to herself about buying new ones.
Pam looks at the dress and says it looks great. She takes the video out of her bag, explaining that Phil gave it to her at the newsagency(!) Cody tries to put her off but Pam is dying to watch it.
Sam and Brett are fed up of moving stuff, and suggest they could rig up a pulley system between the two houses(!) Danni obliviously walks past to buy some guitar strings(!)
Danni has borrowed $50 from the stashed money to buy the guitar strings. She says she'll just pay it back out of her next pay cheque(!) Michael tries to tell her about him staying on at the Bush school, but doesn't manage it.
Cody has managed to distract Pam while she fast forwards past the scrag fight(!)
Sam and Brett have got the pulley system up, but they are trying it out using Jeffrey the rat, much to Brett's distress. Michael and Danni are mocking them from a distance.
Pam is surprised that the Deb Ball video was so short(!) but compliments Cody on how gorgeous she looked.
Lou is setting up the TV in No.22. He finally gets it on and the evening news is on. There's an article about a music store in Erinsborough where a suspect $50 note was discovered today. The police are appealing to the public for more information. Danni looks worried.
