Flick has found a place to stay, Libby and Drew's old place.
Boyd is as happy as a pig in poo and would hate to go back to year 9.
Steph gives Marc his ring back and says never come back.
Marc says the sooner a hayseed like you from Oakey realizes that they are not going to get a girl like Flick the better, Stuart hits Marc and Joe runs out to break them apart.
Lou says he knows they are angry, but there is no need to turn his pub into a boxing ring. Stuart says he is sorry, but Lou says that will not bring the patrons back and will not make up for a quiet evening at home, before asking how Stuarts hand is and where he hit Marc. Stu says the side of the face, Lou warns he will find more ways of getting back.
Libby says they should go and say hello, Drew says he is ok, she says Stuart is just helping a friend the same as they are helping Steph. He says that his energy would be better used helping Steph not fighting Stuart.
Libby asks how Stu is, he says had better days. Lou says he is trying to talk sense into him, Libby asks if Stu wants to join them but he says he cannot as he has to go.
Libby asks what that was all about, Lou says he is a decent bloke just needs to learn how to control his emotions.
Flick is home, Marc is there to see her but she doesn't want to see him as she has just got home from work is tired and smells of hamburger grease, he has nowhere else to go and just wants a cup of coffee which she agrees to.
Rosie says show me a 14 year old boy who doesn't play up a bit, she could show him a number but Boyd is stopping other kids from learning. Rosie says that if he is returned to year 9 he will feel punished and make him stop trying all together and a bored child would be more destructive. Susan says an over worked child he might stop, Susan is trying to pick the best for Boyd. Rosie doesn't think it is best as she knows him and knows he needs to be set boundaries. But Susan says he is at an age when they expect kids to work alone, Rosie says Boyd is more mature than the boy she sees at school, Susan says the Boyd she sees at school is the boy she has to deal with. Rosie asks if he will talk to her as he is waiting outside.
Marc says he came from nowhere, Flick says it doesn't sound like Stuart and he must of done something, he says he just has a chip on his shoulder and is a country bogun and asks how her job is going. Flick says she is learning to make mega bronco bull burgers and chocolate mudshake, and offers him some pasta for dinner which he agrees to.
Boyd says he just got carried away I am not always like that, he is very sorry and he enjoys some of the work, Susan says just like life you just put up with it, and she appreciates his honesty and he is smart enough to do the accelerated learning project just he is not mature enough yet. He says he was sorry, but she says sorry after the event is too late, she needed to see him demonstrate his commitment working properly acting maturely. He can complete the term in year 10 but will have to complete the year in year 9, she is sorry. She says all kids know when another kid is faking they may play along for awhile but get bored and he should drop the tough guy act.
Drew says they need coffee and juice, when there is a knock at the door.
It is the pest man, before saying hello to a gorgeous little girl who Drew and Libby say is called Ben. Libby asks if they are going to use toxic chemicals which the pest guy says they tried using lemonade but failed, she says to take Ben out and put anything he is likely to suck on in a plastic bag to Drew. The pest guy says he will take a couple of hours. He makes a joke about his dad and asks for some coffee and leaves to get his stuff.
He asks Libby if he needs a key, before asking if Drew is the house husband which Libby says in her dreams.
Flick asks Stuart why he hit Marc and he should not interfere with her life and he should stay away from Marc and her.
Lou says to sell the lot, he cannot be sentimental as he needs the money.
Drew arrives and asks about the pest man Gordons son, Lou thinks that as Gordon is a pro he would have taught Nick well and why Gordon couldn't come, Drew says a golf tournament and has to go.
Rosie is there with Summer.
Kids are taking the Mikey out of Boyd, as he gets up to leave he meets Libby who says he has a good book. He says he only got it because of the title, she says a good a reason as any and she hopes he enjoys it.
Outside No 22
Rosie asks if Drew is having his picnic, he says pest control so they have been forced out of the house. Lou says when the house doesn't fall down round his ears he will be thankful for his forward planning, Emily asks if she can stay and mind Ben, Drew says ok and they are going down the park soon. As Rosie and Lou leave they say they will be back in an hour.
Summer asks Drew how babies are made, before adding she already knew and just wanted to see how he would react.
Libby says she was surprised why he was there at the same time as some noisy kids and was not trying to be the leader of the pack, he was reading crime and punishment, when she said something to him about it he tried to play it down and Susan has to give him points for trying. She adds that he reminds her of Toadie, and maybe he will turn out as brainy. Susan says he needs guidance at least Toadie matured and studied, Libby adds not until the end of year 10, he spent more time in detention than he did in class and she shouldn't write him off before volunteering to help.
Stuart arrives and says she had her say and he wants his, at least he is not making a scene in the shop to embarrass her so she lets him in.
He is sick of the way she can say anything to anyone and not care about their feelings, she says and hitting someone is caring about their feelings, and she doesn't need him fighting her battles for her. Stuart says when she was in Sydney she called him for help and she can forget about help now that idiot can have you.
Drew asks Summer to pick up the bag of stale bread for the ducks, as Drew needs to go to the car he asks her to keep an eye on Ben but he leaves something behind so Summer takes it to him letting the door shut behind her. Drew runs to get the door but it shuts leaving Ben locked indoors.
Drew runs around to meet Mick who has started spraying the house, luckily Summer managed to get though the toilet window to grab Ben. Drew takes them both off to see Karl as a precaution.
Rosie says she is making a huge commitment, Libby says it was her idea and mum took over from there. Libby says it would have to be a regular thing twice a week, Rosie doesn't know what to think, Lou says it is a great idea and to call him old fashioned but he thinks kids get too much say in things. Everyone else says he is old fashioned and laugh. Susan thinks Boyd should be included in the decision making process.
Boyd arrives and is called over by Lou and Rosie, Susan says she is happy for him to continue in the accelerated learning programme for another month as a trial, if he has a mentor. He agrees as he has little choice. Libby says at least they both like the Russians. He said he is only reading it because he heard there were some dirty bits in it before agreeing to the idea.
Marc is there with some stuff but Flick is not so keen as she doesn't want charity. He says don't be ungrateful and send them back, she says she should he says she won't unless she prefers Stuarts company then he will step aside.
Drew says Ben is ok, Susan asks if Summer is feeling fine which she is, Susan and Libby both compliment Summer on being so brave. Drew says they will get some blood tests done.
Rosie and Lou arrive, Drew says Summer has been a hero as a police car drives past.
They are there to see Stuart and want to take him down to the station to ask some questions about an assault, Marc Lamberts father wants him charged with assault.
Flick has made Marc cheese on toast, as they start to eat she says good luck. Marc toasts here to us then, Flick feels down as a down and out, she appreciates the positive spin he is putting on but as far as she can see things could not be any worse, he says at least they have each other.
