Amy telling Lance she still wants to continue playing the aeroplane game.
Karl is making himself presentable for the interview with the journalist and Susan and Libby are ribbing him about it. Libby is unsure why Karl picked that particular magazine and offers to stay with him during the interview but Karl assures her they'll be fine. The journalist (Sophie) arrives for the interview and Libby leaves.
Lance asks why Amy still wants to continue with the aeroplane when with the money she's already got she's paid her debts off, which was the original aim of her plan. Amy tells him that it is too good and assures him that nothing can go wrong. Lance says it is gambling, and she's getting a taste of it. Without thinking, Amy replies that she'd be stupid to gamble, which of course upsets Lance and he storms out of the pub.
The interview is in progress and is going very nicely and well. Sophie calls and end to the interview and much to Karl's surprise tells him that it might not use it since there is nothing new and gossipy, so Karl asks what else she'd like to know. Sophie starts by asking him how he managed to get lost in the first place, which then turns into asking questions about the Kennedy marriage. Karl asks to see a copy of the article before it is printed but Sophie tells him it won't be possible due to print deadlines and assures him he's got nothing to worry about before leaving.
Susan runs into Harold taking the rubbish out on the way to see Madge. Due to the strike and the bins not being emptied, Harold's bin is full, so he sneakily puts his rubbish into the Martin's bin and as he's doing so he finds a bag full of used scratchcards.
Susan is over trying to get Madge to sign up for the self-defence class. She is keen, but after getting another silent phonecall she tells Susan to count her in. Susan leaves and Harold comes back in and shows her the bag of scratchcards.
Drew is moaning to Libby that the garage should have money invested in it and wonders how it manages to survive. Libby replies that people will travel to get a decent mechanic and subtly changes the subject by showing Drew a flier for cheap airfares to Europe and Asia. Drew knocks back her idea and says he's got bills to pay.
The Coffee Shop
Tad and Paul discuss who's been sending the mystery letters to Paul. Tad thinks whoever is sending them needs therapy for sending them in the first place! Hannah comes in and wants to join them but Paul says no because Tad and he are talking. This sends Hannah off on one and she tells Paul to stick their friendship.
Paul has obviously told Madge what happened with Hannah in TCS and she urges him to make peace with Hannah before she leaves for Darwin or he will regret it.
Harold pops round on the pretence of returning a book, as Hannah storms home, subtly trying to ask how the family are. Lance arrives home and Harold invites him over to No. 24 for a chat and a cup of tea before leaving. Once Harold leaves, Lance wants to chat to Phil about the aeroplane game.
The self-defence class is underway. Madge is reluctant to join in, so Hannah is the guinea pig being thrown to the ground.
Phil and Lance are talking about the aeroplane game. Phil reminds him that it is illegal and wants to know if he is involved. Lance says no, as he doesn't have that sort of money, although he has seen it work out through a friend of a friend. Phil is even more relieved when Lance lies and says that neither he nor Amy are involved.
The class ends and Madge eventually joins in. She must have been paying attention whilst hiding in the corner as she pulls off the move impeccably.
Madge is thanking Susan for inviting her to the class as she fells much better already. Hannah leaves them, as they are heading into No. 28 for coffee. Unfortunately as she's talking to them whilst walking backwards she runs straight into Paul, so she puts into practice what she's learnt at the self-defence class into use and floors Paul.
Hannah and Paul enter with Paul still feeling sorry for himself after Hannah flooring him. He apologises to her for his behaviour and they have a clear the air talk before kissing each other.
Lance has came round to see Harold about their “chat”. Harold shows him the scratchcards and how he accidentally found them. This makes Lance irate and before storming out, he tells Harold that Phil and Ruth know about the scratchcards. Madge enters and tells Harold he got what he deserved but Harold thinks that because of the way Lance reacted, he's got unresolved problems and Madge adds that he isn't the only one.
Lance tells Phil what happed with Harold the previous night. Phil wants to know again if Lance and Amy have money invested in the aeroplane game as he is going to make sure it is closed down permanently by contacting the Department of Fair Trading & Business affairs. Lance looks worried.
Paul has received another mystery letter but Tad isn't interested and instead shows him a copy of the video he has acquired (The zombie death squad) and suggests they watch it tonight when Harold and Madge are out. Hannah gets invited too since she's kissed and made up with Paul, but she turns them down.
The Coffee Shop
Lance comes in and tells Amy what Phil is planning to do. She tells him to relax as she's only invested $3500 instead of the full $7000 she got the last time, and says that by the time the Dept. acts and finds them she will have made her money. Lance then tells her that the Dept. know exactly who to contact. Amy now panics and tells him to go get her money back for her since she has to go work.
Susan interrupts Tess' class to tell them she knows about the illegal copying scam. She urges anyone with tapes to hand them into her or face the consequences. Paul and Tad look worried.
