Sindi almost catching Darcy and Penny kissing.
Harold offering Valda a bed and Tad overhearing.
Rosie and her grandkids thank Lou for their meal before he goes to serve since they are shorthanded. Rosie asks the Boyd how his first day at school went and he replies saying it was okay and that he made a couple of friends but Summer comes to his rescue when Rosie starts to ask more questions. “I owe you one Sum,” replies Boyd and Sum has her price – milkshakes for a week!

Valda offers to cook a meal as a thank you for letting her stay and while he is looking for an excuse, Penny comes to his rescue by dropping some cutlery in the kitchen. Penny is all apologetic but he sends her home and volunteers to sort it out, so avoiding getting home to Valda.
Penny suggests to Darcy that they go out for a drink but he is very reluctant until she says she will pay then he can't agree quick enough!
Just when Boyd thought he'd got away with it, Libby fills Rosie in at the bar on what he was up to. She adds that perhaps it has shown her that she isn't up to being a teacher.
Valda gives the dogs their food and tells them that they may need to find her if they are looking for her because she is dressed in (for her age) some revealing nightwear and Harold is not impressed when she heads into his bedroom! She tries the old adage of saying she got the rooms mixed up, which Harold clearly doesn't believe. Lou arrives home and wants to know what is going on (they are in the livingroom now) and Harold explains to him that Valda got the wrong room and tries to get Lou off the sent that he enjoyed it or that anything untoward happened before going back into his room…alone!
Ramsay Street (next day)
Sum gives Boyd the guided tour of who lives in which house in Ramsay Street and what they have been up to from the Marc/Steph non-wedding to Karl's dodgy stomach. Boyd gets off his bike when he reaches Libby's house to apologise to her and gives her some flowers.

Penny's day isn't getting any better when she drops Karl's bacon & eggs into his lap. Harold sends her off into the kitchen out of harms way while he brings Rosie her drink.
HAROLD: Oh dear, she's a nice girl, hearts in the right place I know but I don't think hospitality is her thing but the customers seem to like her.
Rosie changes track slightly onto Valda and he isn't exactly enthralled about talking about her either, so Rosie volunteers to have a quiet word with her, which he is ever so relived about.
Boyd walks into the locker area to a round of applause from the kids gathered but he is brought down to earth when he spots Rosie at the school. She is round to talk to Susan about what happened even though Boyd assures her it is sorted.
In the classroom, Susan wonders if Boyd is really ready for the accelerated learning programme and Rosie assures her he is, the marks say so. Susan responds by asking if he is emotionally ready and Rosie asks for time before he is judged, especially given his home circumstances (mother dead, father not at home). Rosie tries to turn it around by saying that if there had been a qualified teacher in the classroom then things may not have escalated, but Susan isn't falling for that, and Rosie apologises for suggesting it. At the end of the meeting, Boyd is allowed to continue on the programme.
The Coffee Shop
Harold is still looking for excuses to get out of having a meal with Valda but he isn't succeeding and she goes off to get more supplies.
In the kitchen, Penny is trying to get Darcy from distracting her from the prep work. Harold enters the kitchen to see how she is going and Darcy leaves.
Susan wraps up the meeting with Rosie and heads into another room, leaving her to see herself out. Boyd spots her and tries to do a runner but she stops him and tells him that she was chatting to Susan and mentions that she thinks he is having trouble fitting in with the older kids but he doesn't think so and reiterates that he is happy to be at Erinsborough High School and doesn't want to go back to Year 9.
Rosie is doing her good deed for Harold but Valda isn't exactly thrilled to see her especially as she is dolling herself up for her meal with Harold. Valda tries to get rid of Rosie but she isn't having it and bluntly tells her that the only thing Harold is available for is friendship, nothing more. “Perhaps he hasn't met the right woman,” is Valda's reply and Rosie's parting shot is that if she continues this romantic pursuit of Harold then she'll just end up looking foolish since Harold is most definitely *not* interested and besides, she isn't his type!
Connor tries to attract Michelle's attention while Susan talks to the class about their assignment and he listens on intently while Michelle reads out what she has done for it.
The Coffee Shop
With Darcy's help, Penny has finished the prep of the food and rewards him by causing him to cut his finger!
Following Rosie's chat, Valda comes to ask Harold if Lou is free for dinner, which makes Harold cheer up no end! He doesn't know if Lou is free but suggests she pay a visit to the pub before casually mentioning if she's talked to Rosie recently. She confirms that she has and is thankful for Rosie putting her straight and promises to say no more on the subject, nudge-nudge, wink-wink!
The Coffee Shop
Penny patches Darcy up and he tries to get out of them kissing but she isn't taking no for an answer and kisses him!
Harold is cleaning the house and Valda can't help dishing out the compliments and he is totally oblivious as to what she is going on about. Lou arrives home and shows off the photos of Darcy from the calendar photoshoot and Valda heads into the kitchen to carry on with the meal. Quietly, Harold tells him that he is thankful for Rosie's chat to Valda and the peace he is now getting.
Valda thanks Rosie for their chat and for preventing her from making a fool of herself. She also suggests that Rosie takes some of her own advice over Lou so that she too doesn't end up making a fool of herself, if Lou isn't in the market for a new relationship!
