Max embarrasses Summer by telling her to clean off the makeup.
Rosie sees the Jelly Drops.
Summer takes a photo of Boyd and Heather
Boyd and Heather are near the lake. He seems nervous and suggests a film, but she asks him to sit down, saying it's the perfect place to be alone together.
Libbyand Susan tell Lou they will have the rest of their stuff out of his house by the end of that day. His cough is bad and Karl insists he needs to come and see him the next day.'You're sick, I'm a doctor-it's a match made in Heaven.'
Just as they're leaving, Rosie comes in and agrees he must go to see Karl, so he replies really snappily.
Max cleans the rest of Summer's makeup off and apologises for being so cranky, saying he was disappointed because they had seemed to be getting somewhere. She replies that he'd said that he'd treat her more as a grown up, but hadn't. He talks about the difference between being grown up and adult and says some things you have to wait to grow into. He wants to know where Boyd is.
Boyd is still at the lake with Heather. He's nervous about kissing her until she says she has never kissed anyone before. He's obviously relieved and kisses her-she says it was fantastic.
Ruby[b] asks [b]Harold if he remembers when they first met. It turns out that years before she went to the Salvos for counselling and he was the one helped her. He answers that this explains why it felt as though he'd known her for ages. They see Heather and Boyd kissing 'Young love, eh.'
Maxarrives at the pub to see Lou handing out complimentary Jelly Drops outside. He tells him he should see a doctor as he looks like 'death barely warmed up'. Lou insists there's no need. Rosie arrives and crossly points out that there are children passing all the time, but the potential argument stops when she remarks that he looks shocking and she's going to make an appointment for him with Karl.
Harold and Ruby are just passing, so Harold introduces the two women to one another. He tells Rosie that Ruby's involved in a large number of community projects, so they have a lot in common. After a couple of polite remarks there's an awkward silence which Harold breaks by saying they must move on.
Max catches Boyd just getting in and quizzes him about his story of going to the lake to feed the fish. He tells him his responsibility was to look after Summer and he's let them both down. He grounds him until further notice.
At 28, Libby and Susan have finished unpacking. Karl's prepared dinner, but Libby wants to go to the pub to meet Steph and asks them to look after Ben for her. As she leaves, she looks back at them in the kitchen together and giggles happily.
Max tells Lou to go home as he's so sick, but Lou stubbornly refuses. Exasperated, Max says he's been dealing with children all day. In the bar, he talks to Steph while she waits for Libby to arrive. She raises the question of Summer and reassures him that things like the make-up are stages all little girls go through, so he was right to put his foot down, but needn't panic about it. She says that the best thing her parents did was to allow her some freedom, while she still knew where her boundaries lay. He admits he probably hasn't listened enough to Summer and Steph suggests it would be good if he could be Summer's friend as well as her dad. He says 'Message received'.
Harold and Ruby say goodnight in the street after he's given her a delicious dinner. She's going on a camp for foster kids for two weeks and when he says he'll really miss her, she asks him to come too. Rosie's just across the road and is obviously upset at seeing Harold and Ruby getting along so well. Harold says he'll think about the camp.
Karl and Susan have had dinner. He tells her she continues to amaze him for the way she's dealt with everything. She reciprocates, saying he and Libby have had more to deal with because of Drew as well. They agree they're two very admirable people. She talks about his patience, which he says was sometimes just appearance, as there were times when he didn't feel too patient. When she asks him how he coped with the frustration.......'well without--for so long, you know', he answers that it has been hard but it was a matter of priorities, that there were far more important things between him and her.
She admits to feeling nervous still, but he reassures her that his 'amazing patience will not wear thin'.
At the Scullys', Rosie talks to Lyn of her feelings about Ruby and Harold. Lyn replies that it's obvious her feelings for Harold run deep and that's nothing to be ashamed of. But how does she feel about Lou? She really must tell him that she's not prepared for things to continue the way they are.
Boyd and Summer are home alone, with Boyd talking to Heather on the phne. Another call comes through-from Max, checking up on them both. Boyd asks if it's OK if they eat some of the 'jelly treats' he bought them. Boyd says Summer already has one, but Max answers that he has to get it off her quickly as it's alcoholic. Max goes home to check on 'another Summer crisis' and is teased by Steph as he leaves.
She and Libby have been laughing over their situation-two grown up women 'living at home with the olds', Steph's parents trying for another baby, Libbys' 'dating' again as if it's for the first time. Libby's not sure whether they should laugh or cry.
Steph reminds Max to be firm but fair and when he replies 'Yes, Counsellor', Libby points out that it's a first-Max taking advice from Steph.
The following morning, Karl and Libby get up to find Susan has prepared a big breakfast. She and Libby are nervous about going to school, although it's only to observe at this stage. Susan's particularly worried about how they'll react to her.
Max asks Summer why Bob is still there. Summer answers that Stuart has given him to her, although, as Max points out, it's Toadie's dog. Max apologises to Summer, saying he was too hard on her. A chat with Steph has shown him he needs to listen to her more, find out what she likes, what she's up to. He gives her a lip-gloss she's allowed to wear, so she's thrilled and suggests he has more chats with Steph.
Harold's just opening the Coffee Shop when Ruby arrives. He tells her he's decided he will go on the camp.
Near 'Bad Hair Day', Rosie tells Lyn she's going over to talk to Lou, but it's because he asked her to. When she gets there, he says she was right about the Jelly Drops, but he was so stubborn it took a near-disaster to get the point across and they won't be selling them any more. He goes on to say she's a very perceptive woman and very tolerant--he doesn't know how she puts up with him, but he's very glad she does.
