Susan and Lyn have got coffees and sit down at the nearest table. Susan asks how Lyn's week has been, which it's been on the Erinsborough gossip circle. Everybody knows what's going on, and helps out of need be. Susan isn't too sure if she likes the sound of that... She hopes Steph and Libby make up, it seems like Steph is a good friend to both Libby and Drew. Lyn assures her that even though they have had their ups and downs, they've always pulled through. Susan wants to know how Lyn's going, but Lyn doesn't have enough time to worry about her with all of Steph's problems, and Michelle's dramas but she wouldn't swap it for the world. Lyn thinks it's now Susan's turn, joking around about Susan starting the fan club for Dr Karl and The Right Prescription. In fact it's the opposite, she's asked him for a divorce. She can't go on being in limbo, wishing and hoping for something that might never happen and Karl can't either. Lyn thinks she should think about it but Susan has done nothing but think about it. Lyn's mobile phone rings, she presumes there are more dramas at home. In fact it's Michelle with good news, Connor's back. She wanted to make sure Connor can stay with them, and Lyn says if it's what he wants.
Steph's messing around with Connor, she can't believe he didn't bring back any apples. She leaves them too it, and Connor gets straight down to business. He's sorry for lying, he should've trusted her. Michelle agrees, and says there is nothing that would stop the way she feels about him. Together they can get through anything. They tells each other they love them and hug. Awww!
Stuey's doing sit ups in the lounge room. Toadie wanders in and asks Stu if it's just him or is it getting crowded in there. Stu's stuff seems to be spreading around like a bad disease or its breeding. Toadie asks if Stu can put it somewhere and Stu shoots back where, there's no space in his room. Toadie's sure Stu never had that much stuff before he left. Stu says it's amazing how much stuff you accumulate after being in the army. Toadie thinks its lucky Stu didn't spend too much time in the army or they would be sharing the lounge room with a tank. Bob comes running in and jumps all over Stu, preventing him from doing his sit ups. They have a bit of a love fest, of Stu talking doggie "aww you're such a good doggie" talk to him and Toadie gets a bit jealous, asking him to tell him how much he loves him. Bob replies with an angry bark, and he stays with Stu. Stu laughs at stroppy Bob and Toadie will remember that the next time Bob wants a treat. Bobby continues angrily barking at the Toad.
Steph's handing over the motorbike to the police. Lyn turns up asking if everything's alright and Steph just explains what she's doing. St. Douglas asks for the receipt, which Steph has, and Steph explains she didn't buy the bike it just turned up one day. Paid in cash and put in her name. St. Douglas asks if Steph knows who sent it, she doesn't really know but she thinks it was Mitch. She though the St. might need it for evidence or something. They'll take it down to the station and also St. Douglas needs to ask Steph a few questions. Steph asks if she wants to go inside but she thinks it would be best if they went to the station. Lyn asks St. Douglas how long it would take and she makes a plan to put the dinner on and then come pick Steph up later. Now Joe turns up wanting to know what's going on, so Steph explains it to him. Joe offers to go with her but Steph declines, saying it will be alright. She leaves in the police car and on the way into the house Lyn tells Joe not to say anything stupid to Connor. Michelle's forgiven him so they should too.
Michelle and Connor are making out on the sofa (hello!) when Lyn and Joe walk in on them. Connor immediately stands and receives a hug from Lyn. She wants to know how a lamb roast sounds and Connor thinks it sounds great. Lyn asks Michelle to come help and Connor offers to help too but Joe holds him back, wanting to have a word with him. The sit down, Connor saying he knows that Joe is probably a bit upset with him. He promises that he will never do that to Michelle again. Joe guesses that the fact Connor can't read or write is the reason behind Connor saying he wasn't good enough for Michelle. But what matters in life is not the problems we have, but they way we overcome them, and he hopes that Connor's learnt that doing a runner isn't the best solution. Connor acknowledges that he's been giving them the run around lately, and that he would understand if Joe doesn't want him to live there anymore but Joe thinks that would be a bit stupid, catching Connor by surprise. But as long as Connor is living under the same roof as Joe he knows what they are getting up too. He's not there to critisise Connor, he's here to help him which Connor appreciates.
Stu sneaks up behind Drew who's trying to pick a bottle of wine, saying that one particular wine is best. Drew asks sarcastically if he learnt wine appreciation in the army but Stu was just born with it. He then gives a random fact about red wine, that you don't have to rush home and put it in the fridge. He asks if Drew wants a beer and Drew can only make it a quick one. They go over to play darts, Stu telling Drew about how he had to get up at five in the morning. Drew asks how the hospital's going and Stu replies that it's busy, a couple of the wards are getting renovations so his wards are full. He has double the patients and they're all winging because they all have to wait. Some random girl is listening in on this conversation and smiles when Stu says that some of the patients are cute, she smiles and asks if he's kidding. Stu wants to know what about and she says he's too young to be a doctor. Stu's about to tell her he's not a doctor but Drew interrupts telling her he's a medical student, doing work experience at the local hospital. She's always had a thing for doctors and Drew says he's such a gentleman he just bought you a beer, pointing to where they're beers had arrive. Drew makes a quick exit leaving random girl to ask if Stu gets to say big words like some I've never heard of so I will not try and spell them!
St. Douglas leads Steph into the interview room and proceeds with the typical questions like name and address. Steph does what she's told then asks if this is necessary, she didn't expect it to be so formal. St. Douglas says what she is questioning her about then tells Steph her rights which Steph understands and just wants to get on with the interview. St. Douglas asks Steph to say her full nature of her relationship with Mitch for the tape. Steph says in a clear voice that she went out for him for a few months the year before, and that she has not seen him since. St. Douglas then asks why she was seen kissing him at the Moco offices at the time of the robbery.
Susan's visiting Drew, saying she's sure he and Libby will work it out. He hopes they do, he hates fighting with Lib especially about all this. They both agree, but they would go about it in different ways. Libby should've spoken to Steph first. Susan has come to realise that she can be impulsive and very protective of Ben. And that's why Drew loves her! Drew says it's weird because he has no one to talk too about it, because he used to go to Susan and Karl for advice because they were experts. Susan laughs and says experts on fighting but no, Drew meant they could put things into perspective. Susan and Karl had been through it all; they've been a great team. Susan thinks if this is Drew's not so subtle way of saying what a great marriage she had and that she shouldn't get a divorce, he needs a change in tactics. They go over to the couch, Drew saying she did have a great marriage but Susan points out the past tense. Drew asks about the flashes of memory, doesn't that give Susan hope of all her memories returning. A few seconds of memory are not something to build a life on, that she can't just sit around waiting and hoping. Drew has one last ditch attempt, telling her this also affects the kids but she says she can't be responsible for everyone else's feelings. She's battling with her own. Drew wants her to do him a favour, get some legal advice. Maybe go see Toadie but she has no idea who he is! Drew offers to go get him now because he's only across the road but Susan will talk to Libby first and then she'll think about it.
Stu's going along with the lie, telling random girl, Sophie, he's not sure what he wants to specialize in yet. He orders two more beer and says the others tell him that cosmetic surgery is where the money is but he would rather do something more for the society, maybe become a surgeon and work in emergency. Sophie asks if he knows anything about skin, because she has a mole on her back, and she asks him if it's bad. He compliments her shoulder and she means seriously, because she's really worried about it. Oh you're in a hole now Stuey! He suggests that maybe she should go see a real doctor, because he was only having a lend of her. He works at the hospital but he's a food server's assistant. She calls him a jerk and storms out. Toadie has arrived to see this little performance and asks Stu what his secret with women is and has a good old laugh. Stu explains what he did and Toadie continues to have a laugh, saying the only thing he helps with is tapioca and rice pudding that's hardly saving lives. Stu reckons he would've struck out anyway when she had realised he was living in a broom cupboard. Toadie has no idea what Stu is going on about, Joel spent many years in there quite happily. Anyway, Toadie wants to know if Stu's back on the horse again, over Flick and ready to move on. Stu doesn't look too sure, but he says maybe. Toadie thinks that if it is well he should try something besides "Hi I'm Stuart and I'm a doctor!" that maybe he should try "Hi I'm Stuart and I'm a rocket scientist!" or "Hi I'm Stuart and I'm an astronaut!" Stu shakes his head and ignores him while Toadie continues with different pick up lines, like Stu being the prince of Persia.
Joe's sitting at the dining room table reading the paper when Connor walks in asking what's the news. Joe can't imagine what it would be like to not be able to read the paper or a book or road signs. Ah Connor says road signs are easy, red means stop and green means go. Joe asks how he was able to keep it quiet for so long and Connor rpelies he bluffed, plus he had a good memory. Joe remembers that Connor was an usher at Steph's wedding but he had memorized the seating arrangements, he had gotten Michelle to test him. And when he had helped Joe on the site that was bluff and he had gotten Tad to help him. But he would never have put anyone on the site in danger. Also Connor has had to scam to get meals, somewhere to stay or say he forget his glasses. Joe then remembers Mal Kennedy's backpack but that was an honest mistake, his bag looked the same as Connor's. Connor now realises that lies catch up with you though. And the worst lies he told were the ones to himself that there would be no problem not being able to read or write. But it's all changing starting today.
St. Douglas comments to Steph that Mitch isn't the only unsavory character she's had a relationship with. Woody, that she visited him in prison and her family permitted him to have day visits at their house which allowed him to commit more crimes. Steph says he was under pressure, but she isn't defending his actions. She joined him in the witness protection program but... she doesn't finish what she was going to say. She's telling them everything only because she has nothing to hide. A policeman knocks at the door so St. Douglas suspends the interview, telling Steph to sit tight because they aren't finished.
St. Douglas goes out of the room to see Lyn asking how she can help her. Lyn's just here to pick up Steph but she's still helping in the police's inquiries. Lyn wants to talk to Steph but she isn't allowed, Steph's being formally interviewed. The St. suggests it might be best if Lyn just go home and wait. Lyn sees Steph in the interview room and Steph spots her, calling out to her. But the door is closed so they can't talk.
Toadie says to Stu that he can't have Toadie's room. Bob runs in and over to Stu, and Toadie wants to know what is going on. He and Bob used to me best mates but Stu thinks times have changed, and they have more in common than Toadie and Bob. They're both single, fun loving guys that both live in a kennel. Stu pretends to hear Bob say that he loves Stu more than Toadie and that he wants to go for a walk. Toadie runs off to answer the door to Susan. There is the tiniest of Stu and Susan 'moment' with her smiling at Stu and Bob leaving (drat!) and the first thing she wants to know is why people call him Toadie. Toadie offers for her to sit, because there is a whole family behind this story and starts rambling off all the different fish names.
Connor's taking the garbage bag out of the bin and asks Joe if there is anything else. Connor thinks he might clean the bin out too. Joe wants him to just relax and Michelle thinks he's just glad that Joe's given him a second chance. Joe didn't like to see the run around he gave Michelle. Michelle tells Joe it was his tape that helped convince Connor to come back and now he's being really good to him. Joe likes him, that's why. But she must remember, a family's interests come first. Joe can see he means a lot to her, and as long as he plays it straight with them he'll be treated like one of the family.
Steph's starting to get frustrated, and who could blame her. She tells St. Douglas she had called her about the bike, she has co-operated with all of the police's inquiries and why would she do that if she was involved. The St. asks why Steph left her job, Steph answers that it was they moved her into an area she didn't like. St. Douglas says it must've been enough for her to take it back. They have interviewed Steph's boss, Patrick Connorly, and she had asked to be re-instated two days before the hold up. He also told them that she didn't press the alarm or contact police. Steph explains that she was in a state of shock. St. Douglas then tells Steph that the motorbike was paid for in cash by a young man. She wants to know what the go is, does Mitch owe her for anything else. Steph of course says he doesn't and the St. asks if she would like to make a change to her previous statement. She doesn't want to, everything she has told them is the truth. St. Douglas tells her she leaves her no other choice but to charge Steph with the robbery at Moco and reads her rights.
Michelle and Connor walk out into the lounge room, discussing the possibility of Connor learning to read and write from Libby. She's helping Boyd so why not get her to help him. Connor doesn't want to look like an idiot in front of Boyd and Michelle tells him he's not stupid. He knows, but he would just feel weird. Michelle then offers to tutor him herself. Connor thinks she might regret it but he finally agrees. He asks when they can start, so she gets up to get some books.
Joe answers the phone to a frantic Lyn informing him that the police are charging Steph with robbery. Lyn then runs over to St. Douglas who's taking Steph to the holding cell, asking when she can take her home. Joe asks what's going on and she replies that she doesn't know, they seem to be arresting her. She asks Joe to come down there now. He hangs up and Michelle asks what's going on. He tells her that Steph has been arrested. The family stand there in shock.
Susan's explaining that Drew had suggested that she go talk to Toadie, that he'd be able to advise me. He doesn't know what to say, and she says she gets that reaction a lot. Just to speak to her as a professional and tell her what she's supposed to do but he can't. He isn't fully qualified yet. But even if he was, he doesn't think he could because of personal interest. They are like parents to him so he couldn't get involved. Susan understands. Toadie says Drew was right in her seeking legal advice, and gets her a list of some reputable law firms that specialize in family law. He will also write down a list of questions to ask. She appreciates any help he can give her, she wants to show Karl that she's serious.
Holding Cell - Night
Steph is sitting on her bed with her head on her arms, until she decides looking at the roof would be more interesting.
