Susan asks if Darcy and Chloe are an item.
Angie's suspicious of Kev, who's checking out family birthdates.
Chloe asks Darcy to stay with her.
Lyn isn't pregnant
Lyn talks of her disappointment but feels they have time. Joe seems a bit less positive and to her disappointment takes his lunch back out to the garage.
Karl shows the hotel brochure to Joe, who's obviously feeling down. He talks about builders never having conferences in places like that, says Karl's children are proud of him. He's been clearing out the garage, looking at some of the music he liked when he was young and is sad because his kids don't see him as someone who was once like them but find him an embarrassment. He seems to think he's achieved nothing, despite Karl's reassurance.
Lyn speaks to Jack on the phone, but when Joe goes to talk, it's cut short. They're worried that he 'seems pretty up' and that's unusual as he normally has a bit of a grumble.
They discuss the fact that Joe's noticed Jack hasn't played for a while or been mentioned. He says he hasn't asked Jack about that or his ankle injury as he feels he shouldn't get at him because he hasn't had a bit of a win, but they both seem worried.
Karl's happy that he has a place at an international medical conference on the Gold Coast. He wants Susan to go with him. She's not too certain about it but agrees.
Susan seems relaxed when Karl comes in to the Coffee Shop all dressed up to go to Cookie's talk, but becomes nervous and avoids a meeting to discuss the trip. She talks to Lyn about it, telling her she wants to go but isn't sure she's ready to 'take the next step'. She definitely wants to take it some time, but not yet. Lyn feels she should give it a chance as this time away's the perfect opportunity.
Karl tells Susan excitedly that Cookie was so friendly and approachable and mentions he's almost sad about going away to the conference. He adds that he's happy to be going with her, which gives her a chance to tell him she's not going because she's not ready. He takes it very well and gently says that it's Ok, he can wait as he knows it is going to work out. They hug, as she tells him she's really going to miss him and will be waiting when he comes back. He replies that it's all he needs to know.
Chloe and Darcy are getting ready for bed and meet in the passageway outside a bathroom. They've just said goodnight when they hear noises from one of the rooms as though someone is breaking in.
Darcy goes to investigate and they see a young woman who turns out to be Chloe's daughter Jordan. The two women obviously aren't thrilled to see one another-Chloe's cross that Jordan turned up suddenly and is rude to Darcy and Jordan feels she's not welcome even though she came out of consideration for her mother. The following day Chloe mentions Jordan's always been confrontational and refuses Darcy's suggestion that he should keep his distance from now on.
Jordan is rude to Darcy again, so Chloe tells him she's leaving already, meaning she'll be alone in the house again. She wants him to stay until she's confident about living on her own again. He agrees to move in straight away.
Kev is talking to someone on the phone.
'No, it has to be at that time……it's 30 Ramsay Street Erinsborough. And just tell me once more, how much was it? OK thanks, see you then'.
Toadie brings the newspaper in to his mother, saying he borrowed it because theirs has mysteriously gone missing-'burnt up in the heat of passion?' Angie looks at the Lucky Numbers and almost chokes. She gesticulates to Toadie and they dance around the room cheering.
Angie looks frantically for the ticket the first she's lost in 30 years of stuffing it down her cleavage for safe keeping, while Kev doesn't let on. She yells at him because the ticket got lost because he 'carried on all of a sudden like Rudolph Valentino, with your fancy caviar and stuff and….that's how it got lost.'
She goes on to make a bitter speech about $350,000 after waiting for years, being ignored, being treated like a slave without a kind word or touch and storms out. Toadie's shaken and tries to tell Kev she doesn't mean it, but he looks very sad and angry and just repeats 'She does, she sure does.'
Toadie and Angie discuss the fact that she's sure lost the ticket. She talks of looking forward to the day she wouldn't have to scrimp and save, until he takes her hand for support. Meanwhile, Kev's obviously waiting for someone near the front door, constantly looking at his watch.
Cookie is just finishing his speech, which has impressed Darcy and Karl, who clearly wants an introduction to him. He invites them both to lunch, but when they get to the pub, where Angie and Toadie are talking about his time in the garage and the times Toadie and his father spent in the 'shed' together. Toadie puts his foot in it immediately by asking 'How's the snoozefest' so that Karl has to introduce Cookie as the speaker. Angie goes on to rave about her son the DJ, a Rebecchi being paid to talk and generally embarrass everyone. Cookie actually listens to Toadie's ' interesting take on families' sometimes and seems quite relaxed, unlike Karl, Darcy and Toadie, but when Angie suggests they all sit together, despite the fact she's already had lunch and mentions a 'knee problem', Karl looks stricken and Toadie says they have to go. She doesn't want to go shopping now there's no money, but when she starts 'Can I tell you boys a story….' Toadie virtually drags her out, while she yells 'I should have married a doctor'. Cookie seems amused and comments that she's an interesting lady, but Karl and Darcy look stricken, until Karl explains it all away by saying 'She's not from around here.'
Later, Kev's in the kitchen looking at a big case full of $100 notes. He leaves a note and darts out of the house when he hears Toadie and Angie come in. She's been talking about being grateful to have her health and other blessings, until she finds the note
'Dear Ange, I always knew my numbers would come up. See you in Rio.'
