The Kennedy's are having breakfast. Libby is getting ready for Uni. Susan observes that Bill is in a good mood. It's all down to a brainwave he's had - the timber he destroyed while making the bed head can be used for coffee tables, and he'll use the money to buy new timber for the bed head. Susan is impressed, but Karl is cautious, mentioning the time it will take. But Bill rejects his input.
Sarah's last exam is this morning and she feels sick. Peter reassures her. Joel appears and is filled in on Peter's change of plans. Joel hopes he'll be able to find someone for his weekend - so far there's been no takers. Sarah rushes off.

Libby and Susan were unaware about the change in plans. Karl sits down and Susan tells him he could have been more supportive about Bill's table idea. Karl rejects her observation that he was a 'bucket of cold water' and, refusing to listen to her, goes off in a huff to eat breakfast in their bedroom.
Peter tells Joel that MSF are fine about him staying. Joel has his little black book and is checking his 'chick list' for potential weekend dates. Even his dentist is in it! As Peter goes to leave Joel offers him and Sarah the weekend - he doesn't want it to go to waste and there seems little chance he's going to find someone to share it with. 'You crazy kids enjoy it' Joel tells him, and Peter thanks him.
Drew and Lou are walking. Lou asks about Drew's romance with Libby - Drew wonders if he's deluded. They are good friends but that's it. Lou knows Drew won't be content with that. Drew brings up Lauren - her baby is due any day and Lou is planning to head up to see her. Madge appears with a palm tree - she's been looking for Lou. She's been given a whole jungle of palms, and not just the one as she asked. Lou asks what he should do with them and Madge retorts that he can shove them up his jumper for all she cares.
Bill is working when Karl appears. Karl apologises for that morning - it's Bill's business and he should be able to run it how he wants. Karl says he feels partly responsible for the accident with the timber - he could lend Bill the money for the timber. Bill says Karl doesn't get it and he wants to do it his way. Karl tries again, attempting to order a coffee table but Bill's having none of it. Karl leaves, saying he was only trying to help.
Peter talks to Libby about MSF, and Libby arranges to do an article about him, promising not to make a big hero out of him. He asks her round to dinner with him and Sarah, just as Sarah arrives.

Sarah agrees, saying it would be best if it was just him and Libby one on one.
Outside Lou's Place
The path to the pub is lined by Madge's discarded palm trees and Madge finds it amusing, to Lou's annoyance. Libby appears and Joel arrives, wearing one of Toadie's bright Hawaiian shirts, and asking Libby if she's heard any weird gossip about him. He thinks Geri been telling people he's a dud date and Libby thinks that'd be something Geri would do. Lou looks at Joel's shirt and has a brain wave - Lou's Tropicana Lounge - silly little drinks with umbrellas in them. He tells Joel to go inside and swap shirts with Steve the barman.
Peter tells Sarah about the trip - he's booked the cabin for that evening. Drew comes in and Sarah introduces them. Drew tells Sarah about Oakey - things haven't changed with Libby but Sarah on the other hand...at least one of them is in luck. After Sarah and Peter leave, Libby appears and Drew says he thought she was avoiding him. She tells his it wasn't him she was avoiding. Drew wonders if it might be time for her to get over her problem with Sarah but she says she doesn't have a problem.
Susan talks to Madge and Karl comes in. He fills Susan in on his visit to Bill's workshop and asks if he is overbearing. Susan says he is - it doesn't bother her, but it does bother Bill. He has to stand back and exercise some self-control.
Libby tells Joel that Geri is the one spreading the rumours and most of the girls she spoke to believe them. He asks what they are. Libby fights to keep the smile off her face - they are bad, 'bad bad'. She whispers it to him and Joel, shocked, can't believe it.
Blue Gum Mountains
Peter and Sarah arrive at the cabin to a hamper of goodies. There's a waterbed - Sarah suggests they should check it out. Peter suggests they maybe do some exploring first and Sarah agrees.
Joel wonders what Geri means by saying 'he's not the man he thinks he is'. It's a lie - he's as much a man as any man and Libby knows that. She is bemused by this, asking how should she know? He asks for the numbers of all the girls she spoke to so he can put them straight, but she says a journalist never reveals her sources. Drew comes in with a big parcel for Libby from his mother: inside is a framed cutting from the newspaper with a photo of Libby and Drew, a fruit cake, a necklace she left and Drew's winners sash from the rodeo. She tries to give it to him but he wants her to keep it, a momento from the trip. Joel returns - he tried to phone Geri but got no answer. Libby fills Drew in on the rumour. Drew finds it amusing but Joel gives him a look and he tells him that it was 'below the belt' while trying not to laugh.
Blue Gum Mountains
At a lake, Peter suggests they go for a swim but Sarah has no bathers. Peter goes in regardless.
Susan is singing and ignoring Karl as he rants about an automated pay-by-phone system. When she says he wasn't listening he goes through it all again. Bill comes in to get some food - he still has work to do.
BILL: I'm starvin'
SUSAN: Oh, Billy, what is that - is that a rule? You put on overalls and you start dropping your 'G's.
BILL: Oh, 'starving'
SUSAN: Thank you.

Blue Gum Mountains
