- Darren tells Libby that he is leaving Erinsborough for good.
- Hannah, Lance and Anne race to stop Phil and Ruth's wedding, only to realise they aren't getting married and are just guests at their friend's wedding.
Anne tells Billy and Caitlin the embarrassing story about interrupting Ruth's friend's wedding. They find it hilarious. Anne says the other guests didn't find it that bad, in fact the Bride's mum said it was the most fun she'd had at a wedding in ages. They hear a car horn, and Anne says it's for her. She and Lance have to wash the car, vacuum the house and mow the lawns. It's her mum's payback. Billy says he'll see her in the morning when they walk to school together but Anne says she can't as she has an extra art class before school. Billy's angry as he had to beg to get out of training in order to walk to school with Anne on his first day back. Anne apologises and says they can see each other at school.
Karl returns from golfing and asks Libby how things went with Darren. Libby says it's off with Darren. She doesn't seem sure that it's the right thing, she can't stop loving Darren just like that, but it doesn't matter as Darren is leaving anyway. Karl doesn't think Libby sounds pleased about it, she says she's just shocked. She says it's the right thing to do for both of them.
Number 24 Back Yard
Paul is cleaning the pool, while Madge naps. Harold brings by a cup of tea and gets Madge up. She says she doesn't want to sit up or have a cup of tea, she'd just like five minutes of peace. Harold apologises and leaves. Paul tells Madge that Harold's only trying to help. He and Harold will miss Madge when she goes to Queensland. Madge apologises for all this, she's just finding it difficult at the moment. Harold returns to ask what they'd like for dinner and Madge apologises to him, and tells them both that when she returns she'll be in tip top condition.
MADGE: Now if you'd still like to help you can get that book from the side of my bed and read to me aloud.
Darren tells Lou that he and Libby have called it quits for good and he's decided to leave Erinsborough. He doesn't want to leave Lou and Lolly but he needs to make a clean break. Lou looks shocked.
Number 24 Back Yard
Harold reads Madge and Paul her book. Madge sits grinning, trying not to laugh while Harold looks incredibly uncomfortable.
HAROLD: She took in the sheen of sweat on his… on his naked shoulders. As he turned towards her, the back of his hand brushed against her… I think we might skip the next bit, it's a bit boring, ay?
MADGE: Don't you skip one single word!
HAROLD: I just don't think it's appropriate Madge.
MADGE: Harold, just read!
HAROLD: Oh very well. His hand brushed against her… horse…
MADGE: What?! Horse?
HAROLD: …which ached at his fleeting touch. His eyes usually so hard and arrogant now softened with longing and… urgh… as Celeste felt those cruel lips on her, a molten volcano of desire gathered deep in her… in her um…
MADGE: In her horse!?
Madge asks why Harold won't read what's on the page, but he refuses to read pornography in front of Paul. Madge says that's rubbish, it's good harmless fun. He leaves to make the dinner and tells her he'll put the book someplace safe for her to read it when she's better. Madge groans and says she'll need to get some audio books. Paul says he's going to the library and offers to get Madge something really hot. Madge says that isn't a good idea, she should choose. Paul tells Madge to come with her, it'll be good for her to get out of the house. She agrees, as long as they don't tell Harold as he'll only worry.
Karl prepares dinner, while Billy is on the phone, talking about Simon being angry at him for chopping and changing the training times. Libby lets Anne in, and they joke with Anne about her starting her own business as a wedding crasher. Libby heads out, while Karl goes into the other room. Anne tells Billy that she called her art teacher and managed to change the class to the afternoon, but Billy says it's too late as he's already arranged to go to training.
ANNE: Go to training, just thanks for making me feel so bad, that's all.
BILLY: How was I supposed to know you'd cancel your art class? You know I can't keep rearranging my life every five minutes just because you keep changing your mind.
ANNE: No, hey, don't worry about it. It's the last time I cancel my plans for you.
BILLY: You stuffed it up!
Anne leaves, as Karl pops his head back into the room. Billy asks him ‘what's the use?'
Libby tells Sarah about Darren leaving. She explains they'd always be bumping into each other if he stuck around so he's taking himself out of the picture.
LIBBY: Still, Ramsay Street without Darren.
SARAH: Yeah I know what you mean, he's become a very attractive part of the landscape. (Libby looks shocked and Sarah bursts out laughing.) Look at you, you lose it in a second. (Libby laughs)
Darren arrives and Sarah offers him a drink, explaining that she's heard he's leaving. She says they were just saying how the street won't be the same without him.
LIBBY: Sarah, weren't you just going home?
Sarah says she was and leaves. Libby asks Darren to come for dinner tomorrow night so they can have a proper goodbye, it's really important to her that they stay friends. He agrees.
Harold walks down the street to see Holly in his garden. He's annoyed as he planted seeds there, but as he approaches, his allergies kick in and he starts to sneeze. Lou arrives and offers to help get Holly out of Harold's garden, apparently she's been in Lou's garden too, trying to bury bones. Lou leads Holly away and says he'll have a word to Phil about it. They say hi to Caitlin and Billy as they head out to training.
Caitlin asks if Billy and Anne sorted things out but they haven't. Billy thinks all they do these days is fight and he gets the feeling that his first day back at school will just be one long hassle.
Karl arrives and greets Sarah. Sarah says Ruth called to say she can't make the golf, which means that Karl won't have a partner with him to win the Lassiter's Cup. The rules say that you have to be partnered with someone from his place of work. Harold arrives just as Karl goes into his office. Harold wanted to check the roster. Sarah was going to cover his shift as Harold thought he was needed at the Coffee Shop but as he isn't needed he offers to take the shift. Sarah tells him she's happy to do the shift, and tells him about Ruth pulling out of the golf tournament, Harold looks thoughtful.
Billy and Caitlin leave the swimming pool. Caitlin says that was the toughest training session they've had in months, and notes that they'll be late for school. Billy isn't looking forward to today after his fight with Anne. Caitlin has an idea, saying that if any guy did this for her then she'd be his slave for a month.
Erinsborough High School
Anne takes a note and a rose out of her locker. The note says ‘After school head straight to the park and follow the flowers for a nice surprise xxx.' As she reads it she spots Billy peeking out from a classroom. He quickly goes back inside the classroom and gives Caitlin the thumbs up.
Darren returns some of Libby's things to her, a shirt and some CDs. He tries to give her back a hot water bottle, but she says she doesn't want it, which is why she left it at his place. They playfully squabble about it, and she begrudgingly accepts it, laughing. They check the plans for dinner for tonight. Darren says he should be cooking her dinner after everything he put her through, but Libby doesn't want to go over that as it's their last dinner together, telling him to forget all that stuff.
Harold is practising his golf swing in the park, meanwhile Anne follows the flowers that Billy has left in the park, picking them up as she goes. Billy is sitting on a picnic rug, waiting for her. Harold searches for his golf ball and finds some of the roses, picking them up and following them. Anne continues to follow the trail, meanwhile Harold continues picking them up, before he and Anne bump into each other. He tells her that he found them and is thinking of giving them as a gift to Madge. He points out where he found them, as Anne explains they were a trail meant for her. Harold gives them over to a disappointed Anne. She slowly walks along, meanwhile Billy sits waiting with his picnic.
Paul leads Madge down the driveway, but Madge thinks this is ridiculous and she'll look like a fool, she's worried everyone will be staring at her. Paul says he'll look after her.
PAUL: You trust me, don't you?
MADGE: I trust you, I trust you. Don't drop me down a pothole!
PAUL: Don't be silly.
MADGE: What did Helen Keller do without you?
The Coffee Shop
Caitlin and Drew reach for the same napkin at the same time, making small talk before he goes to a table. Billy arrives, carrying his picnic basket, looking glum. He says Anne didn't turn up and he waited ages.
BILLY: You know that's the last time I go out of my way to make up with her. I felt like a big enough doofus laying out all those flowers.
Caitlin thinks there will be an explanation and takes Billy to see Anne so they can hear her side of the story.
Paul leads Madge along a path, as Madge asks to sit down, she's exhausted. They sit down on a bench, as Paul spots some kids from school approaching. Paul says he wants to check the park out and asks if she'll be okay for a few minutes. Madge says that's okay as he sneaks off. Paul rushes over to them and asks how they're doing, lying that he's here on his own. They invite him off to a game of cricket and he agrees. They walk, passing behind Madge. Paul looks over to her for a moment before rushing to catch up with his friends.
Karl tells Sarah that he's solved his golfing problem, suggesting Sarah be his golfing partner.
SARAH: I don't know a thing about golf!
KARL: Ah, inexperience. The true prerequisite for the Karl Kennedy school of golf!
He pulls her to her feet and leads her into his office, while she protests, suggesting he partner with Harold instead. Karl ignores that suggestion and gives her a golf club, trying to explain how she should hold it. He puts his arms around her for a second, about to guide her hands but then stops himself and takes a step back. She gets confused by all the golf terms he is using, and holds the club incorrectly. He looks at her grip and lies that it's pretty good, but Sarah doesn't look happy.
Billy and Caitlin arrive at Anne's house, Billy complains that this is a mistake and he expects Anne is in a mood. Caitlin says he won't know until he speaks with her. They knock again but no one answers. Billy is about to walk away when the door opens and Anne rushes to Billy kissing him.
ANNE: You're the sweetest, most romantic, most gorgeous guy I've ever met. Thank you for the flowers they were beautiful.
Anne explains to Billy that Harold took the flowers which meant she couldn't find him, she looked for him everywhere. They kiss again, heading inside while Caitlin heads off.
Paul is playing cricket with his friends, but says he remembered he has to be somewhere. He rushes to the bench where Madge was sitting and finds another woman sitting there instead. He gives her Madge's description, but the woman hasn't seen her. Paul says he's in big trouble.
