Joel and Bernie have a stilted conversation about fathers being proud of their sons. Lou comes over to show off his octopus, until Bernie points out it only has 7 legs. Joel is aumsed, but Lou tries to bluff his way out of it, by saying that he knew that.
Drew is surprised by Ron's arrival at the hospital. Drew fills him in on Libby'/s condition before he leaves to call Rose to let her know he arrived safely. Tess comes along and Drew tells her that Libby's doing better. She just mutters “that's great” leaving Drew confused.

Toadie finds Tess sat on the back seat in a daze. He says he was sorry to hear the news. Tess says everyone will hate him, but he never meant this, he was the best person she knew, he just had this one fault.
Dee tells Karl and Susan Libby's results show that she will be fine. They excitedly hug each other before going into to see Libby. Susan hugs her and Karl punches the air with relief.
THE COFFEE SHOP
Joel talks to Ron Kirk about his own father and suggests they all get together. Drew comes off the phone and tells them that Libby is awake, and he happily tells Harold, and says that she'll recover quickly. As he phones Rose, he thanks his dad for being there for him.
Karl and Susan come home and sort through the mail. He discovers a letter from the medical board asking him to appear. Susan notes they haven't told him he's been cleared. Karl says if it was good news they'd have put it in writing.
Lou tells Madge and Harold he's been ripped off over the ‘Septopi' and they're greatly amused. Lou tells them he gave the salesman an earful “Who does he think he's talking to? I know a scammer when I see one”.
Tess is gardening. Toadie comes over with some flowers, She thanks him and says it was a nice thought. He asks if there's anything he can do to help
TESS: it's as if nothing has happened, everyon keeps doing their thing. People keep going to work, kids keep going to school, you keep worrying about your study. The world hasn't changed at all, and I'm supposed to be organising the funeral.
Joel is stressing about Bernie being late. Dee is trying to calm him down. Joel feels he's been palmed off – again. He talks about Drew's relationship with his father and obviously feels jealous.

DREW (smiling): I'll have to think about it.
Bernie arrives and wants to take Joel out, but Joel says he doesn't have time now. Bernie is in a hurry too and wants to leave. Joel stops him and asks him to sit down. He tells Bernie that he doesn't think things are right between them.
