Heather tells Boyd the kiss was fantastic.
Lou and Rosie talk
Rosie says she's been thinking about their disagreements and although Lou's very positive and ready to discuss things, starts to tell him only to be cut off again by another of his coughing fits. Karl arrives to return the keys from Libby and asks Rosie as his 'better half' to insist Lou comes to see him.
Daniel boasts to the other boys about chatting up girls and asks Boyd if he wants lessons on girls for when he's older. Boyd says he's doing Ok and replies to Daniel's teasing about 'imaginary girlfriends' by just smiling.
Miss Buckley shows Susan and Libby round and introduces them to Daniel, who's a problem student. He plans to get revenge on Susan, the 'brain-damaged ex-Principal' by having some fun.
Karl greets Dee, saying she was lucky to observe Cookie's operation. He feels he's a typical surgeon, self-promoting, but very skilled.Cookie gives her the keys to the beach house, so she thanks him profusely. Dee notices that a nurse who's observing them looks very disapproving.
Boyd has told Daniel about Heather. He knows her and is impressed.Susan and Libby are introduced to the class. When Susan apologises for not remembering their names, Daniel points out she owes him $50.
Lyn meets Lou when he's on the way to see Karl. Lyn is very sympathetic because she thinks Rosie has told him-he responds with thoughts about his illness, so they have a complicated conversation where each thinks the other's talking about something else.
Daniel's being a smart aleck and making worse and worse remarks to Susan as she sits at the back of the class to observe the lesson. The teacher challenges him and Susan catches him out, making him look foolish.
Lyn asks Rosie how she is and says that Lou's coping-just taking medication. She feels he's being very good about it, but Rosie then admits that she 'wimped out' of telling him, so Lyn realises that wa why he was looking a bit bewildered when she was insisting on giving him sympathy. She thinks he may now have a good idea what's going on.
Cookie compliments Dee on her perfume. As she goes to pass him, she trips and he catches her. The observing nurse comes out and tells Dee 'that's the oldest one in the book'.
Daniel pushes Boyd to tell them about Heather. He insists he probably hasn't even kissed her-and wants him to prove their relationship by giving more detail.
Miss Buckley and Susan go for a drink and discuss how the day went. She tells Susan she shut Daniel up conclusively and Susan replies that it just came out-it seemed natural. The teacher says she has no doubt she'll be an excellent teacher again.
Karl checks out his patient, who's been successfully operated on by Cookie. Cookie asks Dee if she wants to observe another operation. He has already arranged for her to be freed from other duties.
Rosie tells Lou she's sorry and wants him to be happy. He asks her to say what she feels rather than drag it out, as they are both adults. She tells him she understands his feelings for her and they're destined to be good friends, but not for marriage. He accepts it well, saying it's better to be friends with her than not.
When Susan, Libby and the teacher go back into class, there's a big sign on the board referring to Boyd as a 'love god' and 'stud muffin'. Daniel says 'Boyd will tell them all about it'.
Dee asks some questions that impress Cookie. Karl is doing tests which Lou thinks are unnecessary, because he's had the cough for so long. Lou tells him it's not the best day on record for him.
[Karen Buckley] talks to Daniel about getting more work done then asks Susan and Libby how the day has gone. Libby has realised how much work teachers have to do but Susan feels she's really going to enjoy teaching English.
Libby overhears the other boys congratulating Boyd on his exploits with Heather. She talks to him about his 'blabbing'-he says he still gets treated differently because he's a year younger than they are. She asks him what's most important-his relationship with Heather or his newfound friendship with 'Dan the Man'.
Lyn talks to Jack on the phone. He's obviously moved and she's been having trouble getting an address out of him.
Rosie arrives and the two women discuss Lou and the way he took the news.
Meanwhile, Lou has told Karl and is feeling low about the whole thing because he thinks he may be too old to be loved. 'This morning I had a cold, by lunchtime I'd got a broken heart.' Karl says at least he 'won the fair maid, if only for a short time'.
When Susan and Libby get home, Libby comments that Lou looks really bad. When Susan says she never felt he and Rosie were suited and seems a bit negative towards Lou, Libby and Karl both stick up for him, saying what a good friend he can be.
Cookie's very happy about the operation which has gone well. He wants to get some notes from a seminar room, where he invites Dee for coffee. She refuses, but he pressures her, saying there are no objects for her to 'trip over' but he suggests she's still being coy. She says she hasn't been playing a game, but he won't believe her and says that now 'the chase' is over.
