Joe, Lyn, Steph, StuartJoe's massaging Lyn's feet and they talk about having a professional massage the following week.
Steph arrives home from the firebreak session with Stuart, who's been given some time off. She's calling him her hero, so tells them how he saved her from the big drum.
Lyn wonders, as they go out again, 'what's going on there'.
Stuart throws stones at the window to wake Steph and persuade her to take a sickie to go fishing with him. He's borrowed Toadie's car and tells her to just get in, start taking risks and this might stop her falling for guys who do that for a living. She's taken aback, but gets in when he's really assertive.
They don't catch fish and Steph can't relax because she might get sprung. They see Summer and realize she must be truanting too.
They talk to her, not believing any of her reasons for being there. She points out that Steph's wagging too so they decide to keep one another's secrets. She finally admits it's to avoid a spelling test, so Stuart gives her an impromptu test on the names of things they can see in the park.
Michelle, Tahnee, Connor
Michelle says she can't go to see a film with Connor as she'll be spending time with Tahnee, feeling sorry for her because her mother's so ill. He admits he's been feeling neglected and she agrees to go.
Tahnee meets Connor and Michelle when they're on the way to the cinema and she tells a sob story, then manoeuvres it so that they and Nina go to see a German film-subtitled, of course. Tahnee checks that that's OK with Connor.
The following day, Tahnee asks Michelle, Connor how they liked the film. Nina speaks sensibly about the film and Tahnee continues to be rude to her. When she asks him again, Connor wins the point by saying he likes foreign films because they use mainly visual means to tell the story, with little dependence on the dialogue.
Michelle gives Tahnee some lavender water as a gift for her mother. She won't answer Connor's question about her mother's illness and he looks a bit suspicious.
At the Coffee Shop, Tahnee's on her mobile insisting her mother do something on her way home. She goes out quickly when Lyn, Nina, Michelle and Rosie come in. They're talking keenly about the choir Rosie's organizing. Tahnee's scathing about it when she comes in and screws up the paper.
Michelle asks Connor if there's something wrong between him and Tahnee. He's so unsympathetic to the story of her mother, she becomes angry and goes off. Joe asks what's going on and when Connor tells him he thinks Tahnee's bad news, Joe says he wants to know what it's all about as in that case he doesn't like the idea of her spending time with his daughter.
At 26, Lyn says she has decided to go to the choir. Joe and Michelle try to discourage her, as Harold did, though Connor doesn't realize at first and pushes her to join. When Joe and Michelle make a hasty retreat, she asks him to listen to her and say what he really thinks.
Rosie's very cool with Lou, who says he's never cheated on a raffle and he doesn't lie. But he does apologise for neglecting her recently and they end up friends again.
Lou has ordered lots of food at the Coffee Shop to support Harold. Rosie arrives and admits she heard some of the congregation saying that they think the Coffee Shop is the source of the food poisoning. Lou wants to go somewhere else to tell her something.
Lou has obviously told Rosie about the food poisoning and mentions that the pub fridges weren't cleaned out properly after the blackout. Rosie pushes him to tell Harold, as she's sure he'll forgive him when he realizes how much stress he was under at the time because of his financial problems.
Lou practises telling Harold about the food poisoning source, but doesn't get a chance.Harold isn't very pleased when Rosie arrives saying that Lyn is coming to choir after all.They're all very pleased with Summer, who says she did very well in her test.
Nina turns up at choir practice, insistent she just wants to help behind the scenes. Harold tries to dissuade Rosie from hearing Lyn on her own, but fails. Lyn sings-out of tune and constantly changing key.
Rosie's embarrassed and wonders how to tell her. As they're trying to find words to use to Lyn, they hear a girl's voice singing 'Amazing Grace'. Rosie's pleased that her star singer has arrived. It's Tahnee. As she sings, everyone listens and we see that Nina's very happily mouthing the words and smiling.....
