Recap
Ruth telling Susan that she and Phil can remain civil to one another for one meeting.
Sarah telling Ben Karl thinks she should become a nursing aid.
Billy gets his assignment back; Susan asking Lisa if she marked Billy's essay
The Coffee Shop
Phil says hello to Ruth. Phil remarks on the fact that Ruth is moving. He asks why and is relieved that she doesn't say it's because they broke up – but because she wants to be closer to her family. Phil turns to go and Ruth says she'll seem him later at the PTA meeting – which he'd forgotten about.
Erinsborough High
Lisa is trying to defend herself to Susan saying that it's impossible to read every essay in minute detail. Susan says Billy and his classmates had commented on how they felt she wasn't looking at their work. Susan says she was also suspicious when she saw that their grades were consistence in the mark register, which is very unusual. Lisa admits that she hasn't been going through them very thoroughly and Susan gets mad saying doesn't it matter to her that her students are improving but she's just too lazy to notice. Lisa promises to go through the essays more thoroughly in future, but that's not good enough for Susan who wants all her assignments of the last 6 months on her desk so she can go through them individually.
Number 30
Sarah asks Ben on his opinion on what she'd wearing because she wants the people at the Open Day to accept her onto the course and she wants to make the right impression. She asks Ben to come with her and he accepts – on one condition, that she isn't negative.
Erinsborough High
Susan thinks they should get Nick Travis in so he can go through with Lisa about the assessments. Lisa was hoping to stop it being spread around the school but Susan thinks she should be lucky it's not going around the education department. Susan says she has to realise how unethical her behaviour has been.
LISA: Well let's face it, it's never been crash hot has it? Ever since I started I've been stuffing up. From being too friendly to letting the kids get away with too much to being incapable of doing my job properly. Why don't you just tell me I'm a failure as a teacher.
SUSAN: I will if you keep up that childish behaviour.
Susan puts her head in her hands and says she doesn't know how to help Lisa get a grasp on what teaching is. Lisa says it doesn't matter – she's quitting.
The Coffee Shop
Billy and Anne are talking about Lisa. Billy doesn't think he should have been so harsh in his paragraphs about Lisa – now she'll mark him down even further. Anne doesn't think she'll dare.
Amy and Cara tell Lance what they want and he goes to order. Cara asks about Lance – apparently he's a good kisser. Amy says she's training him, he's only a 6/10 at the moment, he's not had much practice.
Anne is giving Amy evils – but she isn't too worried because soon Lance and her will have moved and Amy won't be there. Billy doesn't want Anne to go – he mentions to PTA meeting and suggests ringing everyone except Phil and Ruth and telling them it's cancelled.
The Open Day
Sarah is really nervous. Ben tells her if she give sup now she won't forgive herself.
Erinsborough High
Amy and Lance agree to go out later. Cara, behind them, asks if she's giving him kissing practice and she likes his score. Lance is annoyed that Amy has to share everything with her friends and she goes to kiss him in front of her friends but he declines.
In the classroom Billy and Anne are talking. Billy has a free now so he's going to get to work on their plan. He tells Anne to see if she can find out about Lisa in her lesson with Susan next. Anne tells him not to worry – it's Lisa who is in trouble and not him. Susan walks in and Billy makes a hasty exit. Lance sits with Anne. Lance asks Anne if Toadie bothers her because he's best friends with Billy. Anne teases him about Amy's friends finding out he's ‘daggy'. Susan, whilst writing on the board, says she can hear muttering.
Number 30
Sarah doesn't know why she was so worried – the Open Day went really well and the woman she talked to was very optimistic about her even though she lacks any skills. Ben says that's rubbish and she has to stop putting herself down.
Lisa walks in and drops everything on the bench. She announces she quit to a surprised Ben and Sarah.
Erinsborough High
Anne is making a phone call saying that the PTA meeting has been postponed. Anne wonders if Billy is going to her place after school but he isn't as Susan wants to see him at home. Anne wishes him good luck. Billy points out that Susan looked very angry earlier and so perhaps there's more going on than they think. Anne offers to go with him for moral support.
Number 32
Lance and Amy are trying to arrange a move but Amy says her friends are coming. Lance isn't impressed. Ruth comes in and says she hasn't got time to make dinner because she's late for the PTA. When Lance says they were going to eat out she makes him stay home and make macaroni cheese and salad – she doesn't want him eating rubbish. Amy offers to unpack the groceries and Ruth goes to get ready. Lance doesn't understand – he thought Amy wanted to go out. But Amy thinks it's always good to have parents on their side.
Number 28
Susan has told Billy that Lisa resigned because all her work had to be reviewed and she obviously didn't want others to find out about it. Billy feels guilty and wants to go and apologise to her – he only wanted his work marked properly. Susan thinks he should stay away from Lisa and she was the one in the wrong, although his method was questionable – it was cruel and thoughtless.
Erinsborough High
There's no PTA meeting and Ruth is rather mad at Anne. Phil tells her not to be - if it weren't Anne then it would have been Hannah and she shouldn't be so hard on Anne. Ruth wishes she could be more forgiving like Phil, but Phil points out that's not what she put on her list. They decide to go ahead with the meeting regardless. Phil thinks it'll be good because it'll help Ruth calm down before she goes back to Anne but Ruth says she'll still be at boiling point when she gets home.
Number 32
Amy and Lance are cooking macaroni cheese but they get distracted by kissing and what-not. Billy and Anne interrupt and tell Lance about their PTA plan. Lance thinks Ruth is going to go mad, but Anne thinks it's worth it if they get to stay. Amy didn't know and so Lance explains it's not a sure thing yet. She says she wants him to stay.
Number 30
Lisa is on the phone to her mum saying that she doesn't think she's suited to teaching. Meanwhile Sarah answers the door and it's Susan. When Lisa sees Susan she says she has to go and the two talk. Susan asks Lisa to hear her out – but Lisa says she isn't going to change her mind.
Erinsborough High
Phil points out that Ruth wouldn't have thought about moving if they hadn't have split up. Ruth thinks it would be good for the kids to be near their grandparents and the only downside is that she'll be moving he kids halfway through a school year. Phil asks if she's talked to them about it. Ruth has a bit of a rant about how she wasn't in the right frame of mind originally but she will talk to them both. They both laugh and remark on how much PTA work they haven't done.
Outside number 30
Lance has come to see Ben who's working on the car. Ben asks what's up with Lance who explains he's found the perfect girlfriend but now he's leaving Erinsborough. Ben wishes he could help, and Lance replies that he's come up with the idea of the century…
Number 32
Billy and Anne are washing up. They talk about Amy and Lance and how he's changed to fit in. Ruth comes in and Billy attempts to depart. Anne explains that she thought that if she got Ruth and Phil together then they'd work things out and they would have to move. Anne apologises, but she was desperate. Ruth said she'll be pleased to know Ruth and Phil talked but they're still leaving. Lance walks in.
LANCE: I'm not. I'm staying here.
Ruth says that, no arguments, they're all going to live nearer her parents.
LANCE: I'm not arguing, I'm telling you. I've spoken to Ben about it and I'm staying with my brother.
