Daniel talks to Boyd about being a 'stud muffin'.
Flick and Stuart are caught in the storm.
Karl tells Lou he may need dialysis.
It's pouring with rain and thundering. Stuart's weak and in pain and Flick's having to push him to keep going.
Karl and Susan have had breakfast and they make inane small-talk about the newspaper. Eventually they laugh at themselves and Karl says he must go and get ready. But instead, they get very close until he grabs at her and they end up on the kitchen table-making cereal fly all over the place! Dahl gets excited too.
In the Coffee ShopDaniel pushes Boyd to give details about what he's done with Heather and suggests nothing happened since he won't talk about it. They want him to call Heather over to their table when she comes in, but instead he goes over to sit with her and doesn't want to take her to their table.
Joe gets in panting from his run and tells Lyn he's sore when he jumps because she's trying to give him a shoulder massage . She suggests they have a special dinner and when he seems cool, says she wanted it to be a 'special night.' He claims to be tired, but she thinks something's wrong, things aren't the same. He heads off to the shower not wanting to talk about it or agree to talk soon, so she looks really worried as he rushes off.
Heather and Boyd talk in the coffee shop-she's criticising a show that 'exploits people, because she thinks that's wrong. He's so distracted by Daniel watching and gesturing from behind her she asks if they should sit with 'his friends' but he is not at all keen. She's due to go to his school for a netball game that afternoon so she can spend lunchtime with him and meet his friends.
Lou tells Lyn the technical details of his conditions and medications. She says he's lucky to have Karl and then fishes to see if Rosie has been in. He tells her Lauren and Lolly have rung and Libby has brought Ben in, but when Lyn asks directly if he wants Rosie to call, he says no. He says bitterly he won't 'give an official pardon, tell her everything's all right' and won't see her.
Flick is still trying to lead Stuart who's in pain, still in torrential rain through difficult wooded country. He says he can't go any further and she wants to go for help. He doesn't want her to go alone and risk getting lost but has to give in and sits against a tree, shivering like anything.
Susan asks Lyn whether she heard from Flick and they decide the silence must mean they're having a really good time. Susan orders such a big meal that Lyn jumps to the right conclusion and as they giggle about it, she insists she hear all about it before the men arrive.
Stuart is very wet and his vision starts to blur. His head slumps.
Daniel wants Boyd to introduce him to Heather as she might 'have a friend' for him. Boyd pretends he doesn't know whether she'll be coming for the netball, but she turns up just then. To Boyd's embarrassment, Daniel tells her he's heard a lot about her. Heather isn't very impressed.
Lyn's laughing at something Susan has told her and says 'You're kidding! Whose idea was that?
Susan: I know, you wouldn't think it would you!
When Joe and Karl arrive it's obvious the women are privately giggling about something then as they go to get drinks they catch Susan and Lyn ogling them as they walk away.
Karl: Ever get the feeling you're being talked about?
Joe: Live in a house with four women-nothing's sacred.
Daniel asks Heather what she and Boyd get up to. As she heads off, Boyd asks why he's doing it as it feels like he's butting in. Daniel replies that it's just a bit of fun.
Flick gets back to Stuart as she has found a shelter with food and blankets. It's stopped raining, but she has to force Stuart up to go with her.
Lou's on the phone to Lauren, insisting she mustn't spend a fortune to come down to see him. Karl says it's natural for a daughter to be concerned and he'd have thought he might need the support. His levels are now normal, but they have to wait for his kidney functions to be back to normal before he can go home.
Heather tackles Boyd because someone from Erinsborough High has just called her 'easy'. He denies saying anything, but she replies that she knows what boys are like-any excuse to boast, so she wants to know what he has said about her. Boyd's late into class after agreeing to meet her later to discuss it.
Flick helps Stuart to get to the shelter and lights a fire, as he's shivering and still not able to move his arms properly to undo his jacket. He says he feels very weird, like nothing matters except her. She suggests he's suffering from hypothermia and starts to cook beans, but he seems to be asleep/delirious.
Serving him in the Coffee Shop, Susan asks Karl if they'll have an early dinner. He wants to know about plans for later on and she thinks she'll 'improvise'.
Karl: Oh yeah-I just hope I can keep up with all this improvisation!
Susan: I think you're doing really well.
Susan: I'm not scaring you am I? It's just that I think that what's happening between us is just so spectacular, don't you think?
Joe and Lyn come in just as she's kissing him. Lyn wants a cake for a 'quiet dinner at home'. To the women's horror, Joe invites Karl and Susan to join them for their special lamb dinner and Karl agrees. The wives talk them out of that idea pretty quickly.
Boyd and Heather go into the Coffee Shop, with Boyd telling her girls say things because they're jealous. She points one of them, Tanya, out to him. Daniel comes in and talks about them 'getting so serious'. Heather wants to know what Boyd has said and goes off telling him not to call her--- 'Loser!'.
Flick is trying to get Stuart warm by rubbing him-something she read about in one of Toadie's First Aid manuals. He jokes about being glad there's no phone as he'd miss out on all this but she reminds him it's serious because he could get pneumonia. He just answers that if he's going to die he can't think of a better way to go.
