- Lou is very angry with Cheryl and doesn't want to talk about her affair.
- Jeff tells Libby to do the story on the Starks, or to find another career.
Karl is wearing many clothes and is trying to get Susan to play strip poker(!)
Libby comes in and tells them about Jeff wanting her to get "the dirt" on Lou and Cheryl. She's decided not to do it, but is sad that she's not cut out for journalism. Susan tells her that she can keep her integrity, but Libby says it's all about selling newspapers.
Toadie and Billy are discussing the burglar. Billy winds Toadie up, saying the burglar could still be in the house(!) Hannah comes in and scares them(!) She's come to ask them for advice on buying a skateboard and shows them a catalogue. They say they'll do it for a commission(!) Hannah is not pleased.
Cheryl struggles out of the houes with Lolly in a pushchair. It's raining heavily as she heads out, looking sadly back at the house.
Lassiter's the following morning
Lou is sweeping the outside of the pub when Cheryl comes along. She tells him she's moved into Marlene's. He's not very happy about it. He suggests they work alternative days so they don't have to see each other. She tells him that she wants them to live and work together again.
CHERYL: You just can't stop loving me just like that, I'm still the same person!
LOU: That's just it, Cheryl. I don't think you are.
CHERYL: I *am* and if you just give me time, you'll see that! You just can't throw everything away, we've got so much to lose!
Lou just going into the pub without another word.
Hannah gives Casper his new skateboard. He looks it over and says it's pretty good. She tells him she got one for herself as well. Hannah asks him for a couple of lessons. He goes to leave, although Helen makes him say a grudging 'thanks' before he does.
Danni and Marlene are discussing Cheryl. Danni thinks that Marlene should try to understand Cheryl a bit. Just then, Cheryl comes in. Marlene tells Cheryl that she needs to put all her energy into saving her relationship - she should keep trying to talk to Lou.
MARLENE: It's not just your future that's at stake, you know. It's Louise's as well.
CHERYL: I'm aware of that, Mum.
MARLENE: That child had a lovely, happy life until *you* went off and...in your own selfish way.
Cheryl looks upset and walks out.
Helen assures Hannah that Casper loved the skateboard and points out that he has trouble expressing his emotions. Hannah says maybe she should show him she's normal and laid- back, like a guy.
Libby is writing a letter to Jeff telling him why she can't do the Lou and Cheryl story. Susan and Karl have a look and say that it's good.
Billy, Toadie and Casper are sitting at a table looking at a catalogue of ghetto- blasters. They chat, and intimate that Casper is gay because he doesn't like talking to girls(!) He says that he does like Hannah, he just doesn't know how to talk to girls.
TOADIE: Oh, mate, you are so lucky that you've met us. We are going to change your life and teach you everything we know about women(!)
Two minutes later, Toadie and Billy have told Casper all they know about women(!) Casper asks if they know so much, where are their girlfriends?!(!)
Casper sees Hannah and asks if he can walk back to school with her. He apologises for not thanking her properly for the board and assures her that the board is amazing. He says he'll give her a skateboard lesson after school today.
Toadie and Billy are talking about how to get girls to their party. Someone is watching them from a behind a bush.
Casper and Hannah are skateboarding. Hannah falls off, but hasn't hurt herself. Casper encourages her, but just then they are interrupted by a security guard, shouting at them to "clear off".
Lou is having a quiet sit down when Cheryl comes round. He lets her in, saying there is something he wants to talk to her about.
LOU: Louise. I'd like to have some papers drawn up regarding access.
CHERYL: She's your daughter, you can see her whenever you want to see her. Come and visit her, play with her...
LOU: No. I want to see Louise, not you. We'll work different shifts at the pub, and whoever's not working takes her.
CHERYL: If that's what you want.
LOU: That's all I have to say.
CHERYL: I haven't said my piece yet. Lou, you can't seriously be thinking about throwing away the years we've had together. What we had was wonderful, just think back to the way that it used to be. Now, isn't that worth fighting for?
LOU: You threw in the towel when you slept with another man.
CHERYL: If only I could go back and change things, I would. I know I've hurt you. I'll do anything that I can to make it up to you.
LOU: You can't. I can never forget what happened.
CHERYL: Yes, but...it happened under the most bizarre circumstances, it's not like I'm having an affair. Can't you forgive?
LOU: Why did you do it, Cheryl?
CHERYL: I don't know.
LOU: You don't know?!
CHERYL: I had feelings for him. I thought I did at the time. But they weren't the feelings that I have for you. It was you that I was thinking about every single minute of every day.
LOU: Somehow that makes it worse. Now, would you please leave, I think I've heard enough.
CHERYL: But you haven't heard everything, and if you're prepared to listen, then I'll tell you the full story.
Casper and Hannah are getting on better now and talking about more skateboarding lessons in the future. Helen suggests that they write a letter to the council to provide more places for skateboarders.
Toadie and Billy are making a list of girls to invite to the house party. Toadie is very over- confident about his prowess with women. They have 20 girls on the list so far. Toadie grudgingly agrees that they can invite some guys, but only ugly ones(!)
Just then, a brick is thrown through the window.
