Steph and Libby wind Geri up.
Geri walks out of the pub and bumps into Drew. She lays into him about the joke. He denies all knowledge but Geri doesn't believe him. She trips over some stuff outside the salon. Toadie helps her pick some stuff up she's dropped out of her back, but she's not very grateful.
Toadie walks into the Salon and explains that he's had a late night, because he had to entertain Barry and then he went out. Billy is keen to get on with the work, but Toadie wants to get something to eat.
Drew tells Libby and Steph off for playing a joke on someone he likes and not at least telling him about it. Steph and Libby still think she needed bringing down a peg or two. Drew points out that she's dating Libby's boss, and if she's really as manipulative as they say, she could be in trouble. Drew walks off and Steph tells Libby that Drew is annoyingly smug. Initially she thought he was cute, but now she doesn't think she could put up with that.
Toadie isn't doing any work, and it's getting on Bill's nerves. He mentions how he met a girl whil he was out last night and he might give her a call when he gets a break. The he says how he saw Tad and Paul mucking around and it reminds him of when they where young and mucking around
TOADIE: Tad's the smart one, coming up with all the bright ideas getting them into trouble, and into fun, and Paul, well he's the, um….
BILL: what, the dumb one?
TOADIE: Don't be so hard on yourself there buddy, I was going to say the good looking one.
Amy comes in and Toadie seeks her advice about when he should call the girl he met. She says sooner rather than later as he doesn't want to be alone fo the big night. Amy says Bill should get together with Anne, but he's not interested. Amy says she's looking for Anne, and Toadie says she's probably trying to escape from Amy's mother. Amy is shocked and asks Toadie to ‘elaborate, like right now'.
Steph and Libby get all philosophical about the end of the millennium and where they are heading. Steph urges Libby to join her on a bike trip around Australia, leaving Drew in Erinsborough to build up his business. Drew comes over and says that Libby's Editor is on the phone. She thinks he's joking and has a go at him that he isn't believable, but he just repeats that he's on the phone. She leaves and Steph says to Drew that he hates the prank they played. Drew says that Lib's spontaneity is what he lvoes about her.
Amy complains to Anne about what she's been saying about her mother. Anne says that Billy and Toadie have got it all out of proportion, she just needs a break from her now and again. She says that Amy even hates her mother sometimes. Amy says she's allowed to have a love/hate relationship with her “with the emphasis on the love” but they took Anne in and gave her shelter from ‘that freak Fanto' and she doesn't like the way she repays them. Anne asks Amy if she's alright but Amy accuses her of trying to change the subject.
Libby comes in to a frosty reception from Geri. She pulls her aside and tells her that her and Steph were only joking. Geri says she honestly thought ‘that bikey chick' was paying Drew way too much attention, and her idea of humour is sick.
Amy and Anne row about Josie. Anne is saying she finds her ‘interest in art a little full on'. Amy decides to have a go at Ruth, saying she finds her ‘Mary Poppins' act a little full on. Anne tells Amy to leave, and Amy says she thought she knew Anne, but maybe she's wrong.
The owner of the Salon is on the phone checking with Bill how the work's going. When he gets off the phone Bill argues with Toadie about how little work he's doing. Steph comes to have a look around, so Bill heads outside to do some work there. She swaps a bit of chat with Toadie about what work he's not doing, and she decides to leave him to it. Toadie says before he goes that he's got a problem she might be able to help him with.
Libby comes out of a meeting with the editor and tells Geri that he has demanded she re-write the whole article. They row about whether Geri had word with him, as he seemed to prefer Geri's writing style. Geri reminds her that she got fired when Libby was going out with Mike and the shoe is now on the other foot.
Toadie is now talking to Drew about the girl he met in the club. He asks them if they want to go for a break. Bill shoots them a look, so Toadie decides to stay. Drew says he has to get going, and leaves. Toadie has a dig at Bill for being bossy. Toadie's attitude is still slack, pushing a tile into place with his foot.
Steph comes running in and begs Drew to fix her brakes. Drew thinks she's playing a practical joke again, and says he can't be sucked in that way. She says she's serious, but Drew reminds her of the boy who cried wolf, and leaves. She screams and goes running after him.
Bill comes looking for a saw, passing Anne quickly. She makes him stop and tell her what's going on. He gripes about not getting much work done. She thinks it's because of Toadie's broken heart, but he thinks it's because Toadie always used to be the leader when the were kids, so he thinks he can boss him around. He leaves and Amy comes by, wanting to sort things out with Anne. They make up and Anne asks Amy if she's OK. Amy puts it down to the festive season, too many parties, not enough hours in the day. Anne asks her if she's going to the millennium party. She says she is. Anne thinks Lance has something special planned for the two of them.
Drew tells Steph off for ‘riding the clutch'. She says the van was on it's way out anyway, and she has a job to get done. Drew tells her to get some spare parts from her place, but she doesn't want her boss finding out so he agrees to order from their supplier. Libby comes along and complains about having to rewrite the article because Geri had words with her editor. Drew jumps to Geri's defence, saying she wouldn't do that. Steph and Libby agree they hate it when a girl bats her eyelids at a bloke and all rational thought goes out the window. Steph says Geri needs to lighten up and take a joke.
Toadie is complaining about working late when the girl from the club calls. He agrees to meet her in an hour and goes to leave. Bill says he has to call her back and make it later or he's fired.
Libby asks Drew if he's annoyed with her. He says he doesn't understand why her and Steph are being cruel to Geri. He says she's not going out of her way to hurt her. Libby says that Geri lives to make her life hell. Drew says they should just get on with her lives. Libby says that she finds Drew's chivalry and never losing his temper annoying. He says he has got a temper, she's just being childish. They go over to the couch and start playfighting
Toadie is working quickly. Bill orders him to slow down, he wants the job done properly. Toadie steps on a tile and it breaks, and he tells Bill to take it out of his wages. Bill says he should have worked on his own for all the help he's been. Toadie goes to leave and Bill calls him a jerk under his breath. Toadie challenges him and he says that he's been treating his work as if it doesn't matter, because it's not as important as a lawyer in the making. Bill says mate or no mate, he's fired.
