Ben and Sarah argue about Caitlin staying at Number 30.
Anne is offered permanent modelling work.
Billy looks through photos of male models Anne will be working with.
Susan asks Karl if he's dead set against her taking the Wangaratta job.
Later Susan tells Karl that if she gets the job she'll take it.
Anne comes in and asks Sarah if she's seen Billy – she has something important to tell him. She then asks Sarah about modelling and fills her in about being an in-house model for Teen Girl. She has to go this afternoon to be briefed on it. Billy thinks Teen Girl is pretty dumb though (boys would think that). Sarah says modelling can be pretty tough on relationships. Anne says it's not a big thing and she isn't thinking about a career. Sarah wishes her good luck.
Karl says he just wishes Susan could think a bit more about it: Susan retorts she's done nothing but think about it. She might not even get it, but Karl reminds her that she might. He wants to know if she's thought about everything it entails – the move etc. He admits he doesn't want to leave Erinsborough and he knows it sounds selfish, but he has an investment and a commitment to all the patients. Susan brings up the agreement they made – she would put her career on hold to bring up the family and now it's time for her to pursue it! She didn't complain when he wanted to move to the country and she didn't when they moved to Erinsborough, which he didn't even discuss with her! She did it all because she knew it's what he needed. Then Sarah buzzes through on the intercom and announces a patient's arrival. Karl says they'll discuss it later and Susan angrily says they certainly will.
Caitlin moves in, with lots of her stuff. Ben tries to persuade her to go and enrol in school – she's missed enough. But she's more concerned about training and goes to do that, ignoring his request for her to move her stuff beforehand.
The patient comes out and Karl finds that Sarah kept him waiting while he and Susan had their ‘discussion'. He tells her that the patient has priority and she shouldn't do that again. When she says about their conversation he says it was nothing bad and asks for the next file. Sarah tells him if he ever needs to talk she's here – he listened to her about Matt after all. Karl nods.
Darren is optimistic about his partnership. Susan comes in, wishing she could come into the house without a child of her's pashing on the couch. Darren has to leave anyway. Susan apologises once he's left – she has some decisions to make and Karl isn't being helpful. Libby suggests they talk over a cuppa. Susan tells her about the promise about their careers. She tells Libby she's going to apply for the job, which is the problem. Libby says she can see her father's point. Susan says that she's had to leave places she's loved for him, and they might not be there that long. Is it too much to ask for 2 years when she's given them 20?

A nervous Anne is called in to see the editor, noticing that the girl who came out is on the cover of the current issue. The editor tells her to relax. The theme of the article she'll be in is ‘Are you a fashion tragedy?', and the editor thinks it's just great. Anne rolls her eyes.
Billy asks Anne how her meeting went, joking around about it and Anne tells him to cut it out. Caitlin and Mandi ask her about it – any exotic jetsetting? She says it was just a briefing, and they continue to bombard her with questions. Billy tells them they should be getting back in the pool, and Caitlin agrees that they shouldn't be seen slacking off. Billy asks Anne what really happened.
Karl comes home to Libby studying at the table. They talk about Wangaratta, and Libby says Susan was upset about it. However she, Billy and Karl all don't want to move. How will he convince her? Karl says she, Toadie and Billy should make themselves scarce tonight. Susan arrives home and Karl is being extra nice, offering to order in takeaway and helping her to the sofa. She says none of what he's doing is wrong, as long as he doesn't think takeaway will make any difference to a certain job application.
Ben feels old when he puts his name in the ‘Parent or Guardian' box in Caitlin's school enrolment form. He asks Sarah whether or not she'll back him up with Caitlin but she tells him that although she is okay with her living here she won't be playing a part in discipline. She will leave that until when she has kids. Caitlin returns and goes straight for the fridge, saying she's going to head for the shower. Ben reminds her that she promised to move all her stuff when she returned from training and she says she'll do it after her shower.
Karl and Susan are stuffed full of takeaway. Karl recalls their nights in college where they had lots of takeaway. Susan says he's gone to a lot of trouble to keep her from going – it'll be financial ruin at this rate with all his bribing the kids. Karl says he wasn't going to bring it up but Susan says they have to talk about it sometime. Karl tells her the kids don't want to go. Susan thinks Billy could come, as there are plenty of country colleges, but Karl says maybe he won't. Karl reminds her she misses Mal terribly and not that long ago she wanted a baby. But Susan knows her kids are going to leave some day and when they do go she wants a career, not nothing. Karl asks what about his career, then says they should just leave it until it's definite. ‘Let's hope I don't get the job', says Susan. Karl says no; he wants her to be fulfilled, professionally and personally.

Caitlin and friend return, talking about Billy's unhappiness about the male model. Caitlin plans to veg out in her room and Ben asks if she notices anything different. She observes that her stuff is away and casually says thanks. Then when she gets to her room she demands to know why he trashed it. Ben says it was disgusting in the house – if she'd done something about it, he wouldn't have done it. He's taken on their parents' authority and she has to listen to him. Caitlin retorts that she can do what she wants and he can't stop her!
