Anne comes in and introduces herself to Joel's mum. She says, "So you're the girl who was involved in Joel's accident." Anne looks a bit put-out.
Joel's mum says Anne might have done Joel a favour - she reckons he was wasting his time trying to make a career out of athletics. She thinks Joel should go to university and get his degree. Susan disagrees - he has to do the triathlon while he's young, he can study later. There is a bit of an atmosphere in the room. Susan and Anne leave.

Phil tells Harold that he reckons Gary will contest the will - he's dodgy.
Bill is putting the finishing touches to the dinner for him and Anne. He answers the door to her. They are very tactile with each other. Anne compliments him on the dinner he has prepared.
Susan is making a toast, "To the Thunderbird! May she end up on a scrapheap which is where the old bomb deserves to be"(!). Karl looks pained. He says the car was a wonder in its time! Karl tells Susan that it's too expensive to have the house repainted. He also says it'll be chaos with paint pots and sheets everywhere. Susan says it will only take 3 days, and also - she won't be there. She is going on a principal's development course for two weeks. Karl gets cross with her and tells her that she planned them to coincide, despite her protests. Susan says if the paint fumes get too much for him he could go outside or he could just chill out in the fumes!

It goes all over Anne and in retaliation she shakes the bottle at him - it goes everywhere. Bill takes off his drenched shirt and chases Anne around the living room. They falls on some conveniently-placed cushions and start kissing. At that moment Susan comes in and see Bill shirtless on top of Anne!
