- Sarah realising she's been scammed by the people who robbed No. 30.
- Sarah sighing to Toadie that she feels like she's being punished for everything that happened with Karl.
Hannah and Lance are having breakfast on the day of the 40- Hour Foxtrot. Amy arrives and asks Lance in surprise if he's still eating. Lance points out that it *is* breakfast- time! Amy shows off the dress she's going to wear. Ruth comments that she still thinks forty hours is a bit much. Anne comes in and tells Amy that there are still some things they've got to organise. Amy, however, assures her that everything will be fine – she's even moved the venue to the Public Hall. She and Lance head out, leaving Anne to sigh to her mother that *she* did all the work and then Amy took over.
Hannah has turned up at the car yard, where she tells Lou that she really did try to stop Denny; she was told to hang around with her, but she won't be hanging round with her ever again. She pleads for her job back. Lou, however, replies that, under normal circumstances, maybe, but with him going away next week, he'd rather not take the risk. Hannah walks out – to find Denny waiting for her. She growls at Hannah that if Hannah dobbed her in, she'll pay.
Joel tells Billy that he needs some help taking the sponsorship advertising over to the community centre. He and Joel head out as Philip comes in and tells Susan that he rang Karl: he's happy to come along to the foxtrot and treat blisters and anything else that might arise. He asks Susan if she's sure it's not a problem. She insists that it's fine, although the expression on her face suggests otherwise.
Anne asks Hannah, Denny and Zoe to sweep the floor. Denny mutters that she didn't come there to sweep floors. Amy joins Lance on the stage and asks him to fix up the sign. Lance asks if she's going to help, but Amy tells him that she has to check her outfit. She suddenly realises that she's forgotten her shoes. Joel and Billy come in with sponsorship signs. Anne asks Joel if he has a partner, and he replies that it's Penny from the sports store where he works. Mark joins Hannah and comments that the place looks really good.
Madge and Harold serve Karen and Toadie and ask if they're taking part in the Forty- Hour Foxtrot. Karen replies that she tried, but Toadie wouldn't be in it. Madge then asks how Sarah is, and Toadie replies that she's not good. Madge tells him that a regular of hers had her bag snatched in the same place. Harold comments that he heard they're putting on more surveillance teams, but it's a disgrace that women can't walk down the street in safety. Toadie remarks to Karen that the guy seems too confident, striking in the same place all the time. Karen suddenly declares that she's got the most devious and cunning plan to catch the thief!
Anne is telling everyone that she and Philip need to collect the sponsorship forms. Amy comes in suddenly, all dressed up in a professional- looking dress. Anne comments to Billy that she looks like something out of ‘Strictly Ballroom'! Harold hands Anne a cassette tape. Anne asks if that's all there is, as the dance lasts forty hours. Harold tells her that it's a 90- minute tape and insists that those songs have stood the test of forty years!
Sometime later, Karl and Ruth come in and Susan says a hesitant hello to her husband. Anne tells Susan that they're ready to start. Susan takes the stage and tells everyone that it's great to see them all there. She thanks Amy and Anne for organising the event, and she then warns people not to overdo it. She hands the stage over to Karl, for some safety warnings.
Penny comes in and joins Joel. He tells her she looks great. Penny smiles that she's not looking too bad himself!
Denny joins Hannah and mutters:
DENNY: This is looking like wow… really exciting.
Hannah retorts that she doesn't know why she bothered to come. Denny takes out a can of spray paint and says she thought she might liven things up a bit. She suddenly sprays the right arm of Hannah's top, grinning nastily that she's improving her look: she needs all the help she can get.
It's nearly 4pm and Susan tells everyone that she'll hand over to Amy to give them a list of dos and don'ts. Anne mutters to Billy that she made up that list and Amy just takes over; she's sick of it.
Mark comes in and tells Hannah that she looks great. Hannah retorts that she doesn't *feel* it.
Amy finishes addressing the crowd and Anne mutters to her:
ANNE: Thanks for reading my speech.
The clock reaches 4pm, Susan turns on the music and the dancing begins.
Karen is putting make- up on Toadie, and she smiles that this is really working. He has his hair down and she tells him that the lipstick looks so good on him! She puts a hat on his head! Toadie sighs that he can't go through with this. Karen points out that he wanted to be a decoy. Toadie retorts that he doesn't want to look like a drag act! Karen grins that she's got to get a photo of this!
Denny tells Hannah bitchily that she looks right at home – in Dagsville. Anne comments to Billy that Amy is making a complete idiot of herself. Amy grins at them that this is the best fun! Anne warns Billy that there's no way she can let Amy win!
Karen brings her car to a halt near the bus stop and tells Toadie to get out. Toadie refuses! Karen tells him that if the thief's around, he should be walking down the street like Sarah was. Toadie points out that Sarah was waiting, not walking. He reluctantly gets out of the car; he's wearing a dress and tights! He makes his way to the bus stop, where he sits down. He suddenly spots Lou approaching in his car! Lou stops and warns ‘the woman' sitting at the bus stop that it's an unsafe area – there have been a few bag snatches there lately. He suddenly realises it's Toadie, though, and he bursts out laughing and blows him a kiss!
Susan turns the music off and calls a ten- minute break. Lance complains to Amy that he's getting all itchy because of the sweat. Amy warns him not to think about dropping out. Mark has given up as a result of blisters on his feet, and Karl says they'd better call his mum. Hannah says she's going to go to the bathroom.
Outside the Public Hall
Karl joins Susan in the dark outside and sighs. He comments that there's a lot of large blisters in there. Susan nods that it's lucky he's there. Karl remarks that, blisters aside, it's going very well. He then asks Susan if she'd fancy a dance herself. Susan, however, says she doesn't think it's a very good idea: she's got to keep an eye on things and he's got the walking wounded to look after. She suddenly notices graffiti on the nearby wall and sighs in frustration that she doesn't *believe* these kids.
Madge sighs at Harold that if she hears ‘Cheek to Cheek' one more time, she's going to throw up! Harold, however, says he thinks it's wonderful, dancing with the woman he loves and hearing all those old songs.
Penny suddenly winces and sits down at the side of the hall. She tells Joel that she'll have to pull out.
Outside the Public Hall
Penny tells Joel that she'll see him at work when she can walk again.
Susan calls another ten- minute break and asks Anne and Amy if she can see them outside.
Outside the Public Hall
Zoe is telling Hannah that Penny has gone, so Joel's on his own! Hannah just mutters that he's all hers.
Susan comes out of the building, with Amy and Anne, and shows them the graffiti. Amy comments that it can't be anyone from inside, as they've all been dancing. Susan asks if they should call a longer break and find out who got to the bottom of it. Ruth suggests they shorten the hours of the dance, as so many people are dropping out. Anne, however, says they don't want to cut the money they raise – but she suggests that she and Amy can do some quiet snooping around. Amy frowns that she and Lance are still competing, leaving Anne to mutter that *she'll* ask around, then.
Zoe grabs Joel and asks if he'll be her partner. He agrees!
Everyone heads back inside, except Hannah, who stares at the graffiti.
Billy and Anne are checking people's jackets and find a can of spray paint in one of them. They hand it to Susan and she asks whose jacket it is. Philip is there and sighs that it's Hannah's. He tells her reluctantly to do what she has to do. Susan turns off the music again and, taking the stage, asks Hannah to come forward. Hannah stands up from where she's sitting, looking puzzled.
