Summary/Images by: Sayaka
Toadie moaning to Joel that he never has meaningful relationships.
Steph tells Lyn that she's not interested in Toadie - she only wants to be friends.
A bloke tries to chat up Dione, then Joel introduces him as his father, Bernie!
The Pub
Bernie, Toadie and Joel are having a laugh while Dione sits uncomfortably. Joel introduces his dad to Lou and Bernie goes off to buy a round of drinks.
Libby isn't sure what counselling is really supposed to achieve and Drew says at least she knows she's a fighter(!) Libby is furious about the photo of Harold appearing in the Erinsborough News and says that Harold is within his rights to sue. Drew suggests she quits but Libby says that someone has to jump up and down about ethics.
Some presents have arrived. Drew knocks one to the floor and there is a loud breaking noise(!)
The Pub
Dione is trying to get away, but Joel won't hear of it. Bernie comes back and Joel tells them that he works in the Marine Institute. Joel suggests that they all go back to No.30 so he can show his dad where he lives. Dione excuses herself saying that she's tired, but Joel and Dione persuade her to come back to No.30.
Libby and Drew have got the card out of the present and find it's from Auntie Minnie - it's probably a family heirloom. Libby is worried she is on a roll - she already destroyed the family quilt! They decide to look for some glue!
Joel introduces Lance to Bernie as the "sensible one"(!) Lance tells them he's off to Darwin for a few weeks, so Bernie can stay over if he wants. When the boys go into the kitchen, Bernie apologises to Dione and says he wasn't really trying to chat her up.
Drew and Libby come to the door looking for glue but Lance says they've only got pate(!)
The Coffee Shop
Dione and Toadie have escaped from No.30 and Dione admits that there's something wrong and she doesn't know what to do about it.
Bernie is the life and soul of the party which now includes Libby, Drew and Lou. Bernie says that Joel's mum couldn't come, she's tied up in work. He says it's good to have a break from each other anyway. He advises Libby and Drew that they should conduct their marriage like that!
The Coffee Shop
Dione has told Toadie what happened with Bernie, but she can't tell Joel because he'd freak. Toadie says Bernie was probably just being friendly - he's from the country(!)
The Garage
Drew is working on a car when Libby comes in. Toadie is also there wearing overalls. Libby has not had much luck with the glue.
Steph comes in on her bike, much to Toadie's discomfort. She asks Libby if she's still on for their ride next week and she says she can't wait to get away for a few days. Steph says it'll be her final fling as a single woman!
Toadie makes a sharp exit with Libby. Drew asks Steph what's going on with her and Toadie. She tells him that she thinks it's unrequited love. Drew smiles and says he can see why - Steph is attractive and fun. Steph looks embarrassed but smiles a bit.
Toadie comes in in a bad mood. Joel asks him what's going on and Toadie says he's fallen for Steph. Joel laughs and says it's been obvious for a couple of weeks. Joel doesn't think Toadie should tell her, their friendship is more important. Toadie says his feelings make friendship impossible.
Bernie comes round and invites Joel out for a run. He goes off to change.
Drew and Libby are trying to glue back together the broken object (it's a vase) but it is not at all successful. Libby says they'll just have to find another vase - she'll have a look on the internet. Drew doesn't think they can afford it, or that they can get it there before the wedding. Libby realises he's right.
Lassiter's Lake
Joel and Bernie are running.
Toadie comes round to see Steph. She invites him into the kitchen where he proceeds to tell her that he's been unfocussed lately because he's got a lot of study on. Therefore he won't be able to hang around with her as much anymore. Steph accepts this readily saying study is important. He leaves looking despairing.
Joel, Dione and Bernie are eating dinner when GuttedToadie comes in and goes straight to his room. Bernie says he's met an old schoolfriend and is going to go and stay with them next week. When Bernie has gone into the kitchen, Dione says Bernie will miss Joel's award ceremony. However, Joel has picked up on the fact that Dione doesn't like Bernie.
When Bernie comes back, Joel reminds him about the awards ceremony and he says of course he'll be there. Joel is pleased.
Libby tells the counsellor that they've worked a lot of stuff out so they won't need to come back again after today. Drew tells the counsellor about the vase.
The Coffee Shop
Dione asks Joel about his parents separation when they were kids. Joel says they worked things out eventually. He thinks there might have been another woman.
Bernie comes in and makes chit chat with Lou. Dione looks thoughtful, and not in a good way.
Libby and Drew are arguing about the joint bank account again, and also Libby says she doesn't want to change her name. They start laughing about it though. The counsellor advises them to come clean with the vase and consider compromise from time to time. The counsellor thinks they're starting out a bit volatile, but they may argue happily for the next 60 years. But the counsellor alos says that they keep giving her reasons they shouldn't get married. She tells them to think seriously whether marriage is what they really want.
