Lou comes round to check the bathroom tiles. He comments that Toadie looks a bit down. Toadie says he's trying to get up the courage to call Sheena and tell her that it's over. Matt thinks Toadie is making a big mistake - there's nothing wrong with having a relationship that's just for fun. But Lou thinks both parties have to be interested in each other or it's just not worth it. Toadie despairs at these conflicting opinions!

He says he wants to find out all the facts first before he involves Karl. Darcy plays down the ramifications of the sale saying it won't make any difference to him and Karl - they'll still work at the surgery, but they won't have as much paperwork to do. Tess reasons that Karl wouldn't argue with any of that - it sounds like a good deal. So Darcy tells her that he's worried that Karl might veto it because he doesn't like change. He insists that the deal is highly confidential and Tess agrees not to say anything - as long as Darcy doesn't tell her any more lies.

Tess says she feels guilty for lying to Karl, but Darcy reassures her that it was only a white lie. Tess still can't understand why Darcy hasn't told Karl about his plan to sell the surgery, but Darcy says that he wants to close any loopholes in the deal first so Karl doesn't say no.
