Susan telling Karl that she doesn't want him to give up on his dream of volunteering abroad.
Karl asks Susan if she'd come with him.
Susan says she can't go abroad it's not that simple. She has a career, kids, friends etc. Susan says she does want the same as him she thinks what she does in Erinsborough counts. Also they should make the most of the time they have as a family. But she doesn't want to stand in Karl's way if that's where he thinks his life is headed.

Portia is still flirting with Lou. Lou talks to Portia about team training. He says everyone has to turn up if they miss more than one practice, they will miss a game. Lou says that then only the keen players will remain, making the team stronger. Portia isn't too pleased with this idea.
The exam starts. Lance looks really rough.
The Coffee Shop
Portia comes in. Madge says, Tea, Coffee, Arsenic? Portia says she's offering Madge the hand of friendship. Madge says she's worried about the other hand behind her back with a knife! Portia tells Madge that if she stands against Portia for coach, she will split the team. Portia tells Madge that if Madge wins the team will suffer because Madge doesn't have much experience. Portia says her and Madge go together well. Madge says, Yeah, like oil and water!. Portia suggests they become co-coaches. Portia says Lou must be left out! She tells Madge to think about it.
The gang are having a post-mortem of the exam. Lance still looks really rough.
The Coffee Shop

Outside the Coffee Shop
Karl tells Susan he's been thinking about what they talked about. He says he is happy as he is, but feels that he could do more. He says it's not what he does, it's what he doesn't do. He says his work has become so mechanical and routine he could make a difference if he did the volunteer programme. But Karl says that instead of going abroad, he's decided to help the community in Erinsborough instead. He's going to ask Harold about helping at the Salvos. Susan thinks it's a wonderful idea.
Anne is still stressed out about the exams. Bill has an idea.

Bill is writing furiously. Lance's vision is blurred. The invigilator asks him if he's OK just before Lance collapses.
