Steph ignores Flick.
Ron has an angina attack.
Flick tells Toadie 'what goes on the tour, stays on the tour' She won't give him any juicy gossip about Tad, she tells him that he is doing well in San Francisco.
Harold rushes in and hardly has time to ask how Tad is, he tells Flick and Toadie, that he is rushed off his feet with two jobs, he says that he will be toasting beer and pulling sandwiches next, in a comedic way that only Harold could pull off.
Drew expresses his concern for his father's health, he thinks that he has had a heart attack. Ron tells him not to worry that it's only angina and he has medication for it, he looks to Libby to back him up in reassuring Drew that it's nothing to worry about. Doctor's daughter Libby assures her husband that it is not as serious as a heart attack, but she doesn't seem to have such a care free manner about her as Ron himself does.
Drew is upset that his father kept his illness from his family. Ron fobs him off telling him that getting into a cross examination would not be good for his health.
Toadie follows Flick out of the Coffee Shop to see if she is OK, she has been given the silent treatment from Steph. Flick tells Toadie that she can only blame herself for what happened.
Toadie offers to find Flick a big stick, so that she can beat herself up properly, he tells her that it was a mistake.
Flick appreciates his concern, and is sorry that Toadie has to be caught in the middle, but she thinks it will take a long time for her and Steph to clear things up. Toadie again reassures her that she has a lot of guts, and she should give herself a break. Hmmm Floadie??? Was that a ship opportunity missed?
Chloe Lambert is obviously stressed out whilst on the phone. She mentions that she wants some staff who can show a bit of initiative. Toadie uses the opportunity to mention that Flick is back in Erinsborough. Chloe admits that she was an excellent worker (when she aimed to show up on time) however she doubts that Flick would be interested in coming back to Lassiters after everything that she has been through.
Drew is still struggling to come to terms with Ron's illness, and the fact that he failed to tell him about it. Libby tells him that it is hard to tell someone that you are close to that you are unwell, especially family. Libby senses that Drew is angry about the fact that his father has angina. Drew denies this, but Libby knowing him all too well that perhaps the real reason that he is angry is because he has always seen his father as tough, and now he is not.
There is a look on Drew's face to suggest that this could be true. Libby tells Drew that angina is a very manageable condition, that it's not the end of the world, she suggests that Drew talks to Karl when they return to Erinsborough to set his mind at rest.
They are then left with the problem of the business, they both wonder if Ron is up to the undertaking of his Stud business.
The next morning Drew expresses his concerns to his father. He asks if he is sure that he is up to running a business. Ron impatiently tells him that he is 'fine' and casually mentions that he has his sons with him to take on the business with him, he tells him that it's a knee jerk reaction to his illness, and that this is his dream. I guess that it is a good way to guilt trip Drew into accepting a role in the business, further impounded when Ron tells him that breeding is the only thing that he ever wanted to do. He asks Drew if it is too late.
Flick bumps into Chole Lambert. At first she feels awkward, but Chloe is welcoming and friendly. She tells her that Marc is holed up in England, and that she wishes he would stop running away from his mistakes, she tells her that she has always marked Flick as someone with courage, She apologises to Flick for what she has had to go through, especially as it was mostly Marc's fault.
She asks Flick if she is looking for a job, as there is one available at Lassiters, Flick says that she doesn't think that it would be such a good idea. Chloe tells her to think about it.
Toadie is bemoaning the fact that there is a distinct lack of choice on the menu. Lou tells him it's a new trend in dining, but Toadie tells him it's more like a cheap gimmick. Lou admits that he bought the Lamb cheap, but he intends to shift it when Henry 'the lettuce' Morgan and his family have 30 people for dinner there that evening. He is distraught to hear from that Toadie that Henry's whole family are card carrying vegetarians and will not be too impressed with Lamb. When Toadie sees Harold working there, and realises that Lou is in dire straits financially and doesn't hesitate to order the Lamb surprise. When he asks what Lou intends to do about the group of 30 vegetarian's arriving for dinner, Lou with a devious look on his face tells Toadie that he has thought of 'plan B'
Ron is telling Libby that Oakie is a very special place, and that the country gets in your blood. He is trying to sell it to Libby as he is obviously keen for Libby and Drew to move to Oakie.
RON: Lib tell me honestly, can you see yourself moving up here?
LIBBY: I love the city too much, the people and the buzz.
RON: The smog.
LIBBY: The shopping .
RON: The noise.
LIBBY: I was born in the country Ron, but we left it as a family, and I for one have never looked back. Erinsborough has been my home for years now, I grew up there, I work there, I went to school there.
RON: But the country is in your blood Lib, you can leave it behind for as long as you like, but sooner or later it calls you back.
LIBBY: Well I haven't heard it lately.
LIBBY: I like my life, I haven't felt the need to change it.
RON: You know having you and Drew up here would mean so much, I mean Rose she is not as young as she used to be, and after what happened to me yesterday need I say anymore?
LIBBY: Yeah, I understand, but apart from you and the rest of Drew's family, what connection would I have up here?
RON: Isn't that enough?
Libby is certainly putting thought into things, there is a fair amount of pressure on herself and Drew from Ron surrounding the business venture and them moving to Oakie.
Flick is giving Harold his souvenir from America, it's 'kitsch' but they laugh about it. Harold asks Flick if she would be interested in a job at the Coffee Shop. Flick says that she will need to think about it. Steph and Stu come in and Steph accusingly asks Flick while she is there, perhaps sensing the tension Harold makes his excuses and leaves. Steph tells Flick that she is wrapping people around her little finger, and Flick asks Stu to give them a minute alone.
STEPH: If this is another one of your big apology routines Flick, you can forget it.
FLICK: I've apologised enough already.
STEPH: So what do you want then, a fight?
FLICK: Stephanie, I don't want to fight you, I want you to listen.
STEPH: If you don't mind, I would really like to eat my lunch in peace and quiet OK?
FLICK: No, not before you hear me out. While I have to live with what I've done for the rest of my life, I'm not going to let it ruin my life. OK I've been selfish and stupid, and I feel more guilty than you will ever know, but you being bitchy to me is not going to make you happy.
STEPH: So what do you want from me then? You want to start swapping make up secrets again? Polishing our toe nails together?
FLICK: No. What you said to Harold was unfair, the way that you put the pressure on Stuart and Toadie is unfair. Stop dragging other people into your conflicts, and get on with your life. Oh and another thing this is my home too, and I miss living here, so get used to seeing me around.
A defiant Flick turns around and leaves, as Steph with a look of disgust on her face watches her leave.
Harold tells (a not entirely surprised Lou) that Henry Morgan's wife has placed an all vegetarian catering order for his 60th party, and he will have to pull out from working at the pub for a couple of days. Lou tells Harold that it's fine. With a smirk on his face as he does nothing to stop poor Harold apologising for the fact that he will be left short.
As Stu tries to make small talk, Steph turns the conversation back to Flick, by asking Stu if he thinks that Flick is right, the way in which he avoids the issue suggests that he does.
STU: I think she has a point
STEPH: What am I supposed to do then forget everything that has happened between us?
STU: No Course not
STEPH: The very least she could do is keep some distance between us.
STU: Are you aware how many times a day you talk about Flick?
STEPH: I didn't know I needed to keep count.
STU: Well you should, cos it's pretty much your chief topic of conversation al day every day.
STEPH: I knew you would be on her side
STU: Come on I'm just trying to help
STEPH: Always everyone's mate aren't you Stu. Never want to make an enemy, never want to do the wrong thing by anyone.
STU: What are you getting at?
STEPH: Well here you are telling me that I am the one obsessed with Flick, you know you do your fair share of talking about her too.
STU: Come on Steph
STEPH: Just admit it Stu you're still in love with her, aren't you.
Stu says nothing, but he is definitely thoughtful.
Flick is there to tell Chloe that she wants to accept the offer of the job at Lassiters. She wants to get her life back on track, and she thinks that Lassiters is the place to do that. Chloe seems happy to have Felicity back on board.
Perhaps to convince himself that he is not still in love with Flick, Stu calls someone called Amanda and arranges a date, they arrange something for that afternoon, but somehow Stu does not look all that enthusiastic when he hangs up. Is he still hung up on Flick?
A huge house somewhere in Oakie
Ron takes Drew and Libby to see a house that he tells them he is thinking of buying. They both say that it is lovely, Ron tells them all they have to do is say the word and it is theirs, if they want it he will buy it for them, as a manager's residence. Drew and Libby do look ever so slightly tempted at the prospect of such a great house for free.
