There's a knock at the door and Rick answers it to Helen. Helen gives Gaby some documents from Rosemary - amongst other things she's interested in resurrecting the Face of Lassiter's promotion. She also thinks Gaby should hire a personal assistant.

No.28, the following morning
Gaby has lost her briefcase. Cody is very ratty as Zac has cried all night.
Brett is writing a play about Lata and Vikram. Danni grabs it and teases him.
Gaby is already sorting out suppliers with a kitchen hand and she hasn't got her coat off yet. Zac starts crying and she suggests the kitchen hand comes back later. As she's tending to Zac, the phone rings.
Danni tells Cody about Brett's play. Rick comes over and tells them that Debbie is coming home today and maybe they should have a party. Danni wonders if Debbie is going to be "different" and won't want to see them.
Phil thinks Holly the dog is feeling neglected since Painter the horse came on the scene. Julie tells Hannah to sort Holly out.
Julie, Helen and Hannah head off, leaving Phil to be a house husband for the day.
When they've gone, Rick comes in through the back door and says he wants to plan a party for Debbie.
Danni is giving out flyers for her business. Brett rolls his eyes at her. Cody looks at the flyer and says she thinks Danni might get into trouble.
Packo comes over and says she might be interested in Danni's "taking the blame" service as she (Packo) is quite good at getting into trouble!
There's a queue of people waiting in the outer office. In the inner office, Gaby is trying to soothe Zac and use the computer at the same time.
Rick comes in to ask about his job and Gaby says she'll get back to him. She promises he won't be left stranded and there's work for him as the Face of Lassiter's too.
To James Bond-style music, Phil is doing the laundry and making impressive looking sticky buns. Unfortunately the laundry comes out pink and Holly eats the buns!
Later, in the garden, Phil comes to hang out the pink washing. Holly is sick in the basket of laundry(!)
Pam and Doug pop in to see how Gaby is getting on. She tells them she's having a crazy day. Doug and Pam take Zac off to give her a break.
Helen pops in to see how Gaby is getting on. She tells her that Rosemary has suggested Rick for the PA job. Gaby is dubious. Helen explains that Gaby gets on well with Rick, he knows Lassiter's and has management experience from The Waterhole. Also, he can start straightaway. Gaby starts coming round to the idea and eventually agrees. She goes off to apologise to the interviewees waiting in the lobby.
Rick, Cody, Danni and Phil are decorating the living room for Debbie's party. Phil is telling them about his disastrous day(!) He insists that he's on top of things though!
Danni heads off just as Hannah arrives. She bangs on about Painter and Phil tells her she should give Holly some attention, and not leave it all to Julie and Helen.
PHIL: Holly is *your* dog and she doesn't understand what's happening. I want you to spend as much attention on her as you do on Painter.
The phone rings and it's Annalise with a message for Rick. He's needed at The Waterhole as sick cover. He's disappointed to miss the party for Debbie, but heads off.
Packo asks Danni to write an assignment for her. She signs Danni's "contract".
Julie and Debbie arrive home.
DEBBIE: The one thing I don't want is a *fuss*. I just want to come back to Ramsay Street and have everything back to normal, you know?
JULIE: Don't worry, darling, it will be.
DEBBIE: I mean, what happened to me happens to lots of people, I'm not a freak or anything.
JULIE: Of course you're not! Look, we'll have a nice quiet homecoming tonight with the family. And that'll be that.
DEBBIE: Thanks, Mum.
Cody is keeping watch through the window and tells everyone to hide because they're coming.
Debbie and Julie come in. Debbie is confused to see balloons etc.
DEBBIE: What's all this?!
PHIL: (running out) Surprise!
Danni, Hannah, Cody and Brett all jump out too, yelling "Surprise!"
DEBBIE:(angrily, to Julie) You told me it was just the family!
JULIE: I had no idea, Debbie!
PHIL: It's just a little surprise...
Their faces are starting to fall.
DEBBIE: I didn't want this! Can't everyone just leave me alone!
She dashes out of the house, upset.
