Harold is upset with what he said to Lou and the boys say that he'll get over it. Harold says he's going to sort it regardless of what it takes.
Joe smells something nice cooking as he comes home. Lyn says it is a casserole and when he tries to sample it he's told not to as there won't be enough - she is taking some over to Flick. Joe says she should just provide some for the whole of No. 30! Lyn then says that perhaps they could invite Flick & Joel over for food instead but he grunts as he leaves and Steph comes in. Lyn asks where she has been and Steph replies that she went to see Libby but she wasn't in. She notices that Steph is a bit down and asks how she is and Steph says she is fine but then goes to tell her something but changes her mind.
Harold calls in wanting to talk to Lou and Lou wonders why he's there. Harold apologises to him and says that he appreciates all he has done for him and wants to know if they still are friends. Lou says yes and says realises he was crowding him but thought he'd like the company and Harold says he was and invites him round for coffee when he's finished. Lou turns it down so Harold says dinner tomorrow then and Lou says he'll think about it.
Maggie is sending her family off and Lou leaves for work after exchanging pleasantries with Harold. Karl stops to ask Paul if he's ready for the game tomorrow night (he is). Paul gloatingly says to Tad that he'll have to play if the Dingo's want to win.

Tess and Darcy are talking about Dione's likes and dislikes and she mentions Dione is dying for him to ask her out to a new restaurant in Eden Hills. Darcy leaves to book it and runs into Karl and Susan. He tells them he won't be able to make dinner as he's going out with Dione. Karl wishes he'd pay for his share of the surgery computer instead of taking Dione out for a meal. Susan is annoyed at him turning them down so late in the day as the food is half-cooked, so Karl suggests they invite Libby and Drew over instead. Susan says he just wants to sticky-beak but he replies that he hates to see good food to got waste!
Maggie and Evan lament about the 6th anniversary of their daughter's death, thinking it would get easier as time goes by. They thought Leo handled it very well think something has changed and Evan mentions that his talk with Dione about what happened to Lolly helped.
Looks like Harold can't get enough of the pub as he's back again - this time to talk to Lou about Forrest First. He's now interested and wants Lou to arrange a meeting with the representative, which Lou eventually agrees to make. Harold also asks if their trip to the vintage car exhibition is still on and with the mood Lou is in, he tells Harold it is off because he was never really interested before leaving Harold to serve some customers.

The Coffee Shop
Darcy is trying to buy some shares when Karl comes in and quickly ends his call quickly leaves as Drew comes in. Karl invites him and Libby round for food but Drew turns him down saying they've already made plans. Karl says they haven't seen much of Libby recently and Drew replies that she's been busy lately before doing a Darcy and leaving very quickly.
The boys are practicing a footy move and Dean asks Leo to repeat the move with his red team, as Evan appears to observe. Leo's red team repeat the move but Dean knocks Leo deliberately out of the way at the end of it. He shouts at Leo to get to his feet, as he doesn't like wimps in his class. Dean suddenly notices Evan watching and quickly starts laughing saying he was kidding before helping Leo up.
Leo has told Susan what happened at the oval and she is surprised and thinks he misunderstood what Dean did, so he repeats them and thinks they were done deliberately. Susan tries to justify Dean's actions saying they were playing footy but Evan still thinks he bullied Leo. She says the kids like the firmness of Dean and thinks Evan misconstrues the relationship between parent and teacher. Susan also thinks Evan is being over-protective but he doesn't think this and wants Susan to take some action, so begrudgingly she agrees to talk to Dean.
EVAN: That will be a start. Susan, I've been teaching for nearly 20 years. Take my word for it, over protective or not I do know a bully when I see one.
Steph is on the phone telling someone she loves them, when she hears Lyn & Joe arrive home with the shopping and quickly changes the tone of the call and mentions Stanno's name. Joe is unpacking the food and notices that some of the things are Flick's favourites but doesn't say anything and leaves her to it. She notices Steph looks happier and Steph tells her she's been invited to Stanno's housewarming next weekend. Lyn asks if there is something she should know, as she doesn't normally get very excited at going away to Stanno's but Steph replies that there is nothing going on between her and Stanno.
Dean denies to Susan that he is a bully, as he loves his job and the kids he teaches too much. Susan says that Evan saw him do it deliberately, so he says that Evan is mistaken and he's just being protective towards his son and that he doesn't understand how he works and his relationship with the kids. She asks him if he called Leo a sook, he did, and following Susan's exasperated sigh, he says it was a joke. Susan tells him that some kids are more sensitive than others and he says she should really mean some fathers, then goes on to say that Evan is a fine bloke and teacher but his style is different to his. They talk about people getting the wrong end of the stick, like Susan had with Jess Fielding, and Susan agrees to leave it there for now and she'll speak to Leo again. Before he leaves (to let Leo in) he thanks her for listening to his side of the story.
Evan wants to know what Leo talked to Susan about but he won't say. Leo tries to suggest it was an accident and goes to do his homework. Maggie can't believe Leo changing his mind and Evan says kids are just too scared to talk about it. Evan is annoyed at Susan's stance and Maggie suggests that he has to listen to both sides of the story and suggests they take a break at her mothers to get away from it all.
Tad is trying to sort out his music when Harold announces supper is ready. He tells them that Lou knocked back his offer of supper and there is plenty to eat.
Drew & Libby's Place
Karl comes round to ask Drew to the footy game Paul is playing in tomorrow and he agrees to go. He asks where Libby is since they had plans and Drew says that they changed. Karl doesn't like what he's heard and asks what is going on. Drew says there is nothing going on but Karl doesn't believe him, especially given the mess of the place, and eventually he says that she is at Tom's. This surprises Karl and he asks if there is a problem, and Drew says yes - Libby is pregnant.
