- Debbie tells her tutor that she doesn't want to go to group therapy tomorrow.
- Gaby gives birth
- Danni's singing career is in doubt
- Brett offers to show Lata around
Danni is ranting to Brett that her stardom is going to consist of dancing and miming to a song. She's says maybe miming isn't the worst thing and Brett is appalled.
Mark has popped round to see Shannon/Zachary. Gaby explains about the change of name.
MARK: What's wrong with Shannon?
GABY: Dad registered his name yesterday. It seems he and Lou have decided that Ramsay Street isn't big enough for two Shannons! So they've decreed we have to start using their middle names. Only neither Cheryl or I had chosen middle names, had we?
MARK: Oo- oh. Tell me the worst.
MARK: Zachary? Zac. I could live with that name.
Rosemary tells Helen that the job offer at Lassiter's is a serious one and it need only be one day a week.
HELEN: Are you asking me to spy for you?
ROSEMARY: Oh, Mum, you make it sound so much more exciting...
HELEN: Darling, I'm no Mata Hari! I can't go round sneaking looking into people's desks and handbags, it isn't exactly my style! You see, it's my conscience.
Rosemary explains that she can trust Helen's judgment - so is she in or not? Helen reluctantly agrees.
ROSEMARY: Thank you, 007!
They shake hands.
Danni pops round looking for Mark, but only Annalise is there. She tells her the "pop star" story instead. Annalise says the actual singer isn't going to get a shot at it, so Danni might as well.
Brett asks Phil how Debbie is getting on at the clinic.
Lata comes in looking for Vikram but he isn't there. Brett follows her out of the shop and suggests he gives her a tour of the area. She readily agrees.
Debbie is chatting to another patient. He suggests that they could go to a movie. Debbie agrees and he drags her off to miss the group therapy.
Mark and Gaby come in with Zac and Phil, Helen and Marlene coo over him.
HELEN: Hello, Gaby, how are you feeling?
GABY: Almost guilty I feel so good!
MARLENE: You look incredibly well, quite nauseating, really!
GABY: Well, I'll try and look more drawn and haggard next time I see you!
MARLENE: Wait until you have three or four of these little monsters, you won't have to try!
Mark heads off and Helen invites Gaby to join her for lunch.
When Helen and Marlene have gone, Gaby asks Phil how he feels about Rosemary buying in to Lassiter's. He is unconcerned. Gaby isn't sure how flexible Rosemary is because she'd like to take a bit more maternity leave. Phil says he can't hold the fort forever, he needs to get back to the Newsagency full time.
Brett is introducing Lata to a raspberry drink. He also lets her taste a Vegemite sandwich which she likes less. She also tries a lamington and an Anzac biscuit.
She comments that she has a very different diet in India. She also explains that her aunt and uncle had a restaurant that she helped out in.
Danni and Mark are talking about the pop star issue. He uses a bit of reverse psychology on her.
Helen and Gaby are having lunch. Gaby wonders if she should ask Rosemary for an extra week maternity leave. Helen explains that Rosemary has employed her as a consultant and Gaby is surprised.
Helen heads off to meet Debbie at the clinic.
When she's gone, Annalise comes over and admires Zac. She tells Gaby that she's got a present for Zac and will bring it over this evening.
Phil and Helen have turned up and nobody can find Debbie. Another patient explains that Debbie wasn't in group therapy today.
Brett is giving Lata a tour of the complex. She tells him that Australia is so much less crowded that India.
BRETT: So, do you think you're going to like Erinsborough?
LATA: Yes, I do. Very much.
BRETT: Yeah, so do I.
He looks a bit smitten with her. She heads off home.
Danni is on the phone to Artie saying that she can't take up his offer. Brett is pleased and tells her she's done the right thing.
Brett tells Danni that Lata is an orphan and was brought up by her brother, Vikram. Danni says they'll soon be helping to bring up Louise(!)
BRETT: What a horrible thought.
DANNI: Poor us.
BRETT: Poor kid!
Clinic car park
Debbie arrives back. Phil tells her they've been worried about her but she is unconcerned and seems very happy.
PHIL: Deb, you're here for a reason, there's no point if you don't go to group therapy.
DEBBIE: Oh, I didn't want to. It gets a bit boring sometimes.
PHIL: So, what did you do instead?
DEBBIE: I went to the movies with Kim!
Helen points out that Debbie is relaxed and happy and it's nice for her to have a friend. Debbie assures Phil that she's been to lots of therapy, she just didn't fancy it today.
DEBBIE: If you get your knickers in a knot like this *you'll* have to come in for some therapy!
HELEN: Oh, that might not be such a bad idea!
Annalise has got Zac a poetry book for when he's older. Also she's bought some cream for Gaby.
They talk about Rosemary. Annalise says she thinks Rosemary is a good boss - tough, but fair. Annalise doesn't think she'll want to give Gaby more maternity leave, though.
Debbie introduces Helen and Phil to Kim. Phil's surprised to see that Kim is male.
PHIL: Guys, this isn't funny, going out on dates when you should be in group sessions, it's not on.
DEBBIE: It's not a date, we're just mates.
KIM: It's alright, Mr Martin, we're like, good for each other.
PHIL: Yeah, well...
They get up to leave and Phil hugs Debbie goodbye.
Gaby has popped over to see Rosemary.
GABY: Actually, it's about Zac in a way...
Before she can continue, Phil and Helen come in, talking about Debbie and Kim.
PHIL: Did you like that boy?
HELEN: Yes, I did!
Helen assures Rosemary that Debbie is getting better and they chat a bit. They eventually notice they have interrupted Gaby, so go off to the kitchen for a cup of tea.
GABY: Now, I hate to impose, I know I said I'd only need four weeks maternity leave...but with Zac arriving late it's kind of thrown my schedule.
ROSEMARY: Oh, so the point being?
GABY: Well, I need to take those extra couple of weeks leave. Is that OK with you?
ROSEMARY: Oh, right. Um...well, look, this wasn't something I was going to get into right now...but I suppose you might as well know. You can have the extra leave, that's OK. And that's got nothing to do with my decision that...I think it's only fair for you to know, that when your contract expires in six months time, well, I wasn't planning on renewing it, Gaby.
Gaby looks shocked.
