Karl and Susan share a kiss
Pulling apart their hug, Karl and Susan both admit they are nervous. Karl reaffirms that he loves her, but she is worried about how fast it is going. He assures her that there is no rush and that the evening has been perfect. They resume their hug.
Libby wonders if it's safe to return home, and Steph jokes how it's awkward to walk in on your parents.
LYN: Oh Steph, you can't even think of your parents as people can you!?
Steph helps Libby with the pram as Joe arrives home. Lyn is eager to give him a hug, and he admits he's not quite up for 'that'. Lyn play- slaps her husband and informs him that Flick will be moving back home; Steph's idea.
JOE: Ah, I'd better grab a shower when I can then eh. Our girl's coming home.
Out on the front step, Libby listens out for her parents.
LIBBY (to Ben): Don't ever spy on me like this.
Heading inside she coughs as she enters the living room. It is safe though as she finds her parents curled up together on the sofa. Karl declares it is time for him to head home, and reminds his daughter to come and see him if her cough gets any worse. Susan thanks Karl for their lovely evening and suggests that they keep up their tradition of a meal. He suggests next week, but Susan would prefer sometime sooner. Karl heads off leaving mother and daughter alone.
Libby notices how pleased her mother looks, and Susan admits she's not about to argue.
SUSAN: What do I look like?
LIBBY: Like the cat that got the cream.
Angie is moaning about Kevin, but Toadie suggests his mother give his dad a break. Angie continues to go on about how she's got three lovely sons, but a husband who is either at work; asleep; or tinkering about on an old car. Kev meanwhile just ignores his wife as he sits at the kitchen table, cutting his toenails. Angie feels like she's left running the show on her own. Toadie decides to take advantage of his mother's moaning by taking notes for his radio show.
Susan is cheerful as she starts work, and Harold remembers she is about to head off to uni. Opening the post, he is thrilled to open a letter inviting him to the local Help a Friend charity. Libby pops by to see Susan before they head off to uni.
Rosie is overwhelmed by the response from her congregation about the news that she is staying on. Lou is also very pleased with her decision and suggests that maybe they look at moving in with one another.
LOU: I can offer maturity and certainty.
Rosie is touched, but can't accept his offer, as the archbishop wouldn't allow it. Lou is disappointed, but understands.

Toadie has started his radio show for the day and is using his parents as his topic of conversation. He asks listeners to ring in with stories about parents and advice on how to cope with them. Libby and Susan arrive, trying to remain conspicuous, but fail as Toadie makes a call out to them on the radio. Mother and daughter agree to adopt a united front as they start their uni course.
Harold is tuned into Toadie's radio show, but Joe isn't so impressed, believing that Toadie needs to be introduced to some decent music, namely Status Quo. Steph drags her father away as Angie and Kev arrive. Angie is amused to hear her son recalling the events of the previous evening, but Kev is less than impressed. Harold turns the radio off.

Susan and Libby compare timetables as Toadie continues on the radio. Looking up, he notices his parents watching him, so invites them in to join his show. Big Kev is less than impressed at his son's show, however Angie is quick to back Toadie up and the two are soon arguing once more, over which of them is the more boring. Toadie sees the opportunity to share this on the radio and switches the volume from the music to his bickering parents.
Joe wants to make sure that Steph is okay with Flick moving back in, but Steph reassures her father that it's time to look forward and she knows the family is important to him. He's pleased to know his daughters will all be home once more.
Rosie thanks Harold for the petition, but he won't stop to talk. She meets Lyn and apologises again for the singing remark. The two agree to get together again for a chat.
Karl is trying to persuade Lou to reconcile with Harold, but Lou claims he is too busy with financial worries and doesn't have the time. Changing the subject he asks after Susan. Karl is pleased to report that things are going well, and he feels lucky that he's getting the rare chance to 'woo his wife' again. Karl mentions that even through the tragedy of Drew's death, people have learned to value what they have. Lou goes quiet insisting that for him a silver lining would be to see far less of Harold.

Kev and Angie are now sat down speaking properly on the radio. Kev is insistent that Angie spends too much money, but she just teases Kev with her next lottery ticket. Toadie takes the opportunity to wrap up the show, thanking his parents for their contribution.
KEV: See ya dudes
ANGIE: Bye Australia!
Out in the foyer, Susan is thrilled that she was able to remember some of the materials of the lecture. A young man approaches Libby, asking if they could go for coffee sometime as he doesn't know anyone yet. Libby is quick to snap 'no', but soon regrets it and tries to explain she is married, but it is too late, as he walks off.
Steph admits she's not sure how she'll forgive Flick, but she knows it's a mistake for Flick not to be at home. Joe is grateful for her honesty, and reminds her that whatever happens family will always be important.
Rosie returns from the fundraising meeting, and informs Lou that she is partnered with Harold, but Lou isn't impressed.
Karl is hearing stories of Susan's day at uni. She recalls how another student asked her for directions to the ATM, even though she had no idea what he meant. She admits it will take a while to get used to the 21st Century, but feels the best way to do so is to get out there and be a part of it. Karl goes to have a look at her course documents, but is upset to see divorce papers lying beneath her text book.
Rosie and Lyn are having a catch up, and Rosie shares her concerns about Lou, contemplating if it would've been easier to have left. Lyn is glad that she is sticking around though, as it will be good for her family. Rosie agrees, but is concerned as to how she will repair the friendship between Lou and Harold.

Meanwhile, the two men finally confront one another. They're both very angry, each accusing the other of twisting words and Harold tells Lou there have been plenty of times when Lou hurt him and didn't apologise at all.
Lou accuses Harold of marrying Madge to spite him and tells Harold he loved Madge just as much as he did but had to stay silent all those years, watching them living a happily married life. He insists he cares for Rosie just as much as Harold does and Harold has to accept that he is not the right man for her.
