Harold tells Lou that he's entitled to his happiness, but he has his own happiness to think of as well. It'll take him some time to come to terms with the fact that Lou and Rosie are a couple and Lou has wooed her behind his back. Harold's upset that he had to find out about it from Summer.
Lou tells Harold that he is being stubborn and insulting.
When Lou has left, the phone rings, and it's someone ringing about Harold's television. He takes a number down to call them back.
The house is full of Valda's luggage - even more has arrived from the train station! Karl starts t move it into her room.
Valda comes home at that point and Karl offers her a drink. Valda thanks Susan for taking her in from the family crisis. She starts ranting about Mark jilting Steph. Apparently Steph has locked herself in her room and Flick has gone missing. Valda wishes that there was more she could do. Valda downs her drink and Karl pours her another one! Valda reckons Marc's family has no breeding(!)
Karl and Susan start to hint to Valda that she should think about going home, but Valda says she's needed in Ramsay Street!

Stu goes a bit quiet.
Someone has rung claiming Tad has bought a television on hire purchase - Harold insists there's been a mistake. He says they'd better return his property or he'll have them charged with theft.
Valda has come in and starts flattering Harold. She introduces herself and shakes hands, then starts ordering a lot of cakes(!)
Stu thinks Drew is being a bit heavy on Flick. Drew says Flick brought it all on herself. Drew says Stu could bother to spare a thought for Steph - she's the one who's been wronged.
Valda comes back with enough cakes for the whole street. She sings Harold's praises saying he's a gentleman and a hunk(!) Valda says Karl is a hunk too(!)
Susan thinks it's a bit late for afternoon tea, so Valda says they can have them after dinner. She wants to take them out to dinner.
Lou is trying to get people to do karaoke but none of them are keen - even when he throws in a free beer. Valda, Karl and Susan come in and introduce Valda to Lou. Valda orders them some dry martinis and Lou starts to shake them up. Valda says you can tell the standard of a bar fromt he way they serve martinis! Valda likes Lou's style and tells Susan that Lou is a bit of a babe(!)

Toadie comes in stroking Bob and Stu covers saying it was a mate from Oakie on the phone.
Stu asks Drew if he can take a couple of days off. Drew is suspicious that Stu has found out where Flick is, and says Stu ought to tell Joe and Lyn if he does know. Stu gets all defensive and claims that his mate from Oakie is coming down for a few days. Drew says if Stu is taking time off to help Flick, he hasn't got a job to come back to.
Lou is still trying to get people to do karaoke. Susan, Karl and Valda are just finishing their meal. Valda decides to stay at the pub to see the karaoke competition. Valda gets up and starts encouraging the punters.
Toadie comes in, followed by Harold who's come to make peace with Lou.
Lou thrusts the microphone into Toadie's hand but he insists he can't sing. Harold volunteers instead, as long as there's something old and gentle in the karaoke box.
Darcy has finished sorting Penny's bandage out and tells her to come back any time if she needs further help. As she leaves, Susan and Karl come in to find out why the light is on. Karl tells Darcy that he shouldn't be using the surgery to treat patients after hours. Darcy insists there is no improper relationship going on.
Before he goes, Karl asks after Tess. Darcy is confused, but Karl explains that Penny and Tess are very good friends. Darcy looks shocked.
Darcy comes into the Coffee Shop and sees Penny there. He tells her he's realised that he might have seen her with Tess before. He wants to know what Penny is up to. Penny says she isn't up to anything - she just enjoys his company. Darcy says it's weird and stalks out.
Harold is just finishing a rendition of...er...something, might have been "My Way"! Valda suggests another number and Harold is in such a good mood he agrees. He starts singing Yellow Rose of Texas in a duet with Valda. The punters are enjoying their performance and everyone starts joining in with the singing.
Susan comments that it's very quiet without Valda(!) Karl says that Valda is a nice lady, but hopes she won't want to stay too long(!) Dahl is squawking his head off. As Karl takes her outside to put her in a cage, there's a snake on the floor.
Susan notices the snake.
Toadie comes in holding the phone and says Susan has found Stu's snake. Stu wants Toadie to go over and get the snake, but he refuses. Toadie guesses that Stu is off to see Flick.
TOADIE: This is none of your business, you should just stay out of it.
STU: She needs me. And I'm not going to let her down.
Poor Susan is still on the phone yelling down it about the snake!
