Toadie won't give Tad alcohol for his camping trip.
Libby can't give up her principles over the fight with the Chronicle.
Woody leaves Witness Protection.
The Scullys talk about Woody. Joe and Lyn are full of a thousand questions about him for Steph. She assures them that she and Woody have some plans worked out and all they need is a few weeks to get them sorted. Joe thinks that's too long – news that Woody's staying with them is going to travel fast.
Lyn asks whether she knows where they'll go – how will they know that she's safe? She promises to work things out.
Joe gets up and asks about her job. She's going to tell them she's leaving and she has some savings put by. Does he need to be so negative? She knows it'll be hard but she's doing it anyway and, to help, she's going to sell her bike to get more cash. Lyn, knowing how much Steph loves the bike, is shocked. Steph, still happy about Woody, tells them they're going to be late for work. Lyn and Joe exchange worried looks.
Libby and Drew's Flat
Drew asks his wife whether she just wants to take the money and run but Libby wouldn't be able to look at herself in the mirror. She needs to do this and is so glad she has Drew to support her. They tear up the settlement agreement.
Steph finishes a call to Moco, telling them she's leaving. There's a knock at the door and she rushes to get it but it's only Toadie. He says a big law firm have offered him a place for him to do his articles and he might even get a summer job out of it! He notices she's distracted – is he boring her? Tad thinks he's become to straight and establishment. She thinks he might be boring compared to Tad and this has him worried. He decides to go and she wishes him luck.
While Maggie respects Libby being so dedicated to her principles, she hopes she knows what she's getting into. It could take years. Maggie's tired, having been up all night doing a case study. Libby thinks she's doing too much but Maggie thinks the same could be said for her. But Libby won't be put off – she's still going through with it.
The Coffee Shop
Lyn and Joe talk about remortgaging the house to help with Steph's finances – one less thing they have to worry about in relation to their eldest. Joe says he'll make sure she's alright – she's his daughter, after all.
At another table, Kusan are laughing, looking at houses for Libby and Drew. Susan's looking for the worst house in the best street rather than the best house in a bad street. This money has come at a great time. Karl asks Joe to keep an eye out for renovators' dream home for Libby and Drew.
JOE (grumbling): Money. It all comes down to money.
Drew appears and Karl and Susan show him some houses but he says there's something they should know…
Steph's doing her sums. There's a knock at the door and this time it's Woody! She pulls him in and gives him a big hug.
Tad's plan to get strangers to buy them alcohol flopped. If Tad was 18 he'd do it for other people. Paul thinks he's stupid enough. He wants to know what the big deal is about it. Tad thinks he's dead boring but Paul says to ask his dad – he wasn't having fun when he was drinking.
Woody and Steph are looking at their finances and it's not good. Steph wonders how they're going to manage until they find jobs. Woody thinks it'll be easy to find work. She asks who they turn to if they get into trouble. Woody says he wouldn't have suggested it if he didn't know how to make it work – they can start afresh in any number of places, together. Steph smiles, repeating ‘Together'.
Toadie appears and breaks the news to Maggie and Libby that he's being headhunted. He offers his help then leaves, promising to drop in to gloat when he returns. Libby asks Maggie if she's jealous: she just wishes she had less scruples.
LIBBY: Tell me about it.
Woody doesn't want to talk details – they'll work themselves out, but Steph does. She wants to know what his solid plan is. He says he'll know by tonight. She wants to know what he's waiting for – “for you to trust me”. He tells her to leave it to him – he's not that hopeless at organising - promising her it will all be worked out. But she needs something more solid –
Joe bursts through the front door with Lyn. Lyn gives him a hug. Joe announces that they've restructured the mortgage in order to give them a wee leg up: a loan of $10 000 to get them started. Steph is truly shocked.
Libby and Drew's Flat
Karl and Susan are over for dinner. Karl thinks they should consider their decision a bit more. Principles are ok in practice, but maybe not in theory. Libby thinks that, if you believe something, it shouldn't matter what you have to go through. Susan also thinks they could do with the settlement money and Karl thought it was fair. But Libby points out that they didn't see the agreement: Karl suggests they sleep on it. Libby says she can't – the contract has been destroyed and they've started proceedings.
Toadie the big hotshot lawyer is back. He wants to be successful and it doesn't mean he can't do good along the way. Maggie isn't criticising him: she just happens to be making a different choice. She thinks this is a fantastic start for him but tells him not to forget her when he's rolling in the cash.
Toadie is glad that Tad is happy for him – at least someone is. Tad was wondering if he'd changed his mind about the grog. Toadie is still saying no and Tad wants to know if they teach ‘Nerd' in Law nowadays. Ha ha…Toadie tells him about the consequences if he were caught – he'd lose his job for starters. Tad comes up with a nice rebuttal but Toadie won't be swayed. Tad spots some grog by the side. You can hear the wheels of his mind turning…
Woody helps Lyn with the dishes. They talk about Lava Lamps and Woody says if they ever want to get rid of it…it then dawns on them that Woody and Steph wouldn't be contactable to take it. Lyn knows that he loves Steph, but…
WOODY: You wish I didn't exist, right?
LYN: Can you blame me?
WOODY: No. Can you blame me?
Woody really appreciates them being so good to him. Lyn says Steph is so precious to them: she is to Woody too.
Libby and Drew's Flat
Karl agrees to defend Libby's right to sue. Toadie appears and Kusan have to leave as the bus for the school trip leaves early in the morning. Libby goes to bed. Toadie tells Drew about Tad wanting him to get alcohol for him. He wants to know who else he's tried to con.
Steph sits down opposite her father. She tells him she can't take the money but Joe isn't taking it back, so it's settled. Steph can't bear the fact that her actions are now affecting them financially on top of everything else. But Joe can't bear the fact that Steph might go without when he and Lyn can help.
Tad comes in and shows Paul the stolen grog – he ‘borrowed' it from Toadie's. Tad might not go to bed at all before the trip – they only have six hours before they have to leave. Paul goes off to ‘do some stuff' and Tad puts the bottle of whisky into his backpack.
Steph is sitting up, alone, in the dark. The door opens and Woody comes in and creeps about. Steph turns on the lamp to let him know she's there. He says he couldn't sleep. She thought they'd found him. He's sorry but he didn't want to wake her.
STEPH: What's going on, Woody?
