Sarah mugged by a man on roller blades as she stands at a bus stop.
Drew wanders up to the bus stop to find Sarah sitting there, holding her shoulder. She tells him that some guy on roller blades just grabbed her bag. Drew tells her that they have to go to the police station.
Harold goes to answer the ringing ‘phone, but it then stops. He sighs at Madge that every time it rings, he thinks it must be Paul. He adds that young Hannah must be missing him. He then asks Madge if she thinks Hannah is guilty over this graffiti incident, but Madge says she believes her when she says it was that Denny girl. Harold comments that he heard from the Salvation Army that that girl can be quite a handful. Madge remarks that asking Hannah to have a good influence on her was asking a lot. The ‘phone rings again. Madge answers and then tells Harold that it's the Salvos: they seem to be in a panic about something.
Drew is trying to talk Libby out of coming out with him and Shelley tonight. Libby grins at him that he doesn't want her getting too chummy with his ex- girlfriend! She then asks him what he's got against this Ray guy. Drew replies that he's a moron – especially with a few drinks in him. Libby shrugs that she's looking forward to meeting him. Drew suggests they get their stories straight this time! Libby then asks him if he can stay and look at her video about car enthusiasts.
Sarah walks into the Coffee Shop, telling Madge that Toadie told her to ring work and take the day off. Madge asks if Toadie's still seeing that girlfriend of his, but Sarah says she thinks they've broken up at the moment. Madge then sighs that there seems to have been a spate of these daylight thefts. Sarah nods that the police reckon there have been five so far, but it all happens so quickly that no one gets a good look. Changing the subject, she asks where Harold is. Madge explains that he had to rush down to the Salvos': one of their soup kitchens burnt down.
Toadie opens the front door to find Karen standing on the step. Looking surprised, he tells her that he misses her. Karen glares at him and snaps that every time she turns on the radio, there he is telling the whole world how much he loves her; it's cringe- making and it's got to stop. Toadie tells her that he's so sorry about the fake ‘phone call thing – he knows it was a stupid idea; he wanted to show her that he was cool in a crisis like Greg was. Karen retorts that she doesn't *want* him to be like Greg, just like she didn't want him to look like Nick; she just wants him to be himself.
Harold arrives back at the Coffee Shop and tells Madge that he's offered the use of their kitchen to the Salvos. Madge asks him in horror how he could, but Harold points out that it's the Salvation Army: he couldn't say no.
Libby bumps into Shelley in the bar. She's holding her video camera and Shelley asks her what she's doing. Libby explains about her film about cars, but adds that Drew wasn't impressed, so she's trying to find someone with an obsession about *anything*! Shelley asks her if she'd be interested in weddings! Libby asks her if she'd do it. Shelley sits down at a table and starts talking into the camera with enthusiasm about everything she's organising! When she's done, Libby grins that that's excellent! Shelley comments that maybe she and Drew will get hit with the wedding obsession soon – there'll be a hell of a lot of jealous girls in Oakey if Libby lands him. Libby just nods warily.
Madge tells Harold in agitation that there's no room to make the lunch orders in the kitchen. A guy walks in – Geoff – and asks Harold if his lunch is ready yet. Harold smiles at him and tells him to take a seat and Madge will make him a coffee. Madge glares at him. Harold promises her that the soup kitchen will be back on its feet tomorrow. At that moment, a load of plates fall onto the kitchen floor and smash.
Sarah arrives home and asks Toadie if there were any calls. Toadie tells her that Karen came round. The ‘phone starts ringing and Sarah answers. After a few seconds, she smiles that that's wonderful. She hangs up and tells Toadie that that was the police: they've found her bag – most of the money is gone, but everything else is there. Toadie offers her a lift to the station.
Drew is asking Toadie when they found out. Toadie shrugs that he took Sarah down to the police station just before. Drew comments that Toadie doesn't look too pleased about it. Toadie sighs that he has girl problems. Drew tells him to join the club, and he explains about Libby being his fake girlfriend.
Shelley has turned up at No. 28 and she tells Libby that this is really good of her. Libby serves some lunch and smiles that she gets to meet the bridegroom tonight. She asks if he's anything like Drew, but Shelley replies that she wouldn't even have *thought* of marrying him if Drew had still been around. She adds that Ray came along and was very persistent and they make a great couple; it's just strange how things work out sometimes. Libby remarks that it sounds like they've got it all worked out! Shelley then invites her and Drew to come up for the wedding. Libby replies hesitantly that it sounds wonderful – as long as they can get off work and she doesn't have any exams. Shelley proposes a toast to love and friendship.
Harold joins Madge in the kitchen and thanks her for her patience. Madge, however, snaps that she's going to be late for her meeting, and she's got a queue of customers still waiting for her orders. Harold starts to say there are lots of needy people out there, but Madge warns him not to preach at her.
Outside No. 22
Karen is playing with Lolly, the radio playing. Toadie creeps up and turns it off. He then makes a live announcement:
TOADIE: We interrupt this broadcast for a newsflash. I have a message of great importance for the most beautiful woman in the world. I know I've blown things with her, but I just have to tell her that she's broken my heart, and I'm the saddest guy in the world. And at the risk of boring my listeners, I love Karen Oldman and I always will.
Karen smiles at him that he can be a real dag! – but at least he's not broadcasting it to the whole of Erinsborough this time. Toadie asks if he's forgiven. Karen tells him that she'll forgiven him if he stops being so jealous and insecure. They kiss.
Sarah arrives home to find the house has been burgled and the lounge room trashed.
Toadie arrives home with Karen and Lolly to find the lounge room empty apart from a few small items. He calls to Sarah, who emerges from the kitchen. They exclaim that everything has gone. Karen comments that they must have had a truck. Sarah tells the others that when she went down to the police station to get her bag, they hadn't even rung her; the thief was trying to get her out of the house so he could get in. Toadie goes to call the police.
Libby comments to Drew that Ray and Shelley are late. Drew retorts that Shelley is probably having to track him down; he's probably off his face. At that moment, though, Shelley and Ray walk in and Drew comments to Ray that it's been a long time. Looking surprised at how clean- cut and sober Ray is, he then remarks to him that he wouldn't have recognised him. Shelley introduces Libby to Ray and he tells her that he's heard a lot about her.
Madge walks into the Coffee Shop and Harold tells her that the soup kitchen is fully operational again, so the Salvos won't be there tomorrow. Madge apologises to him for being angry before. She heads into the kitchen to find Geoff mopping the floor. He thanks her for putting up with them all.
Ray is telling a story about being in the bush. When he's done, Libby comments to Shelley that she thinks it's their turn for drinks. The two of them head to the bar, leaving Drew to ask Ray if he really hasn't touched a drop for twelve months. Ray replies that it's thanks to Shelley: he was a real no- hoper, but she changed that. He adds that she's the best thing that happened to him: Drew went away, leaving the field clear for *him*. He then comments that Libby's a nice girl and he asks Drew if he's popped the question. Drew replies hesitantly that he hasn't. Libby and Shelley return and Shelley asks Libby how long it'll be before they'll be drinking to her and Drew and *their* wedding!
Toadie serves Sarah spaghetti bolognese. He comments that there's no TV, so should be sing?! Sarah declines the offer! She then comments that this has probably been the worst day of her life. Toadie growls that he'd love to grab that guy's neck; he's not getting away with it. Sarah points out that the police are handling it. She then sighs:
SARAH: I feel like I'm being punished for everything that happened with Karl.
TOADIE: That's stupid! Of course you're not.
SARAH: Well, maybe I'm jinxed or something, then. I just get the feeling like nothing is ever going to go right for me again.
