Lori Lee, Jack's girlfriend, arrives at the Scully's
Lou doesn't want Rosie to visit him in hospital
Jack comes home to find Lori there and Joe isn't too happy about it
Joe and Lyn are trying to get to the bottom of why Jack didn't tell them he quit soccer and has been living in New Zealand for 6 months. Lyn doesn't understand how Jack has been living in New Zealand as she has been speaking to him on the phone in England. However, Jack confesses he was calling from Auckland not England. Jack explains that he was dumped from the football team because of an injury and that he feels like a failure. They discuss Jack's plans for the future and he says he has some ideas, and then Lori blurts out that her dad has made arrangements for Jack to work with him in Auckland. Unsurprisingly Joe and Lyn do not seem very amused by this.
Karl is cooking something sizzling, when Susan comes over all horny and starts to undress him in the middle of the dining room. At this very moment Libby, Ben and Steph enter! There are embarrassed faces all round and Libby and Steph make a hasty exit. Susan then pulls Karl by his tie to the bedroom…
Lori, Jack, Lyn and Joe continue to discuss Jack's future in the kitchen. He explains that the job in Auckland with Lori's father is a trainee manager job, to which Joe responds that he didn't see Jack as the office type. Jack explains it will help him earn money so that he can save for a house. Lyn doesn't seem too keen, but puts on a brave face saying that New Zealand is a lot closer than England. Joe and Jack head off for a father-son chat over a drink at the pub. Lori stays to help Lyn in the kitchen.
Max is visiting Lou in hospital. They discuss business and how the pub is coping without Lou. Max then asks if Rosie can visit, but Lou says he's had enough visitors for a while, obviously not wanting to see Rosie.
Max comes out of Lou's room into the corridor where we see Rosie waiting. She then storms in to Lou's room, tells him he's a “stubborn old sod”, throws some oranges down at his bed and leaves.
Summer and Libby are trying to help Steph decide what to wear for the Mother-daughter parade. She is just getting changed when she gets her top caught up with her bra, and then amongst all the commotion Max and Rosie arrive home! Libby manages to cover Steph's modesty, and we see Max is staring with a massive grin on his face Rosie drags him into the kitchen and Libby and Steph fall about laughing.
Lyn and Lori are cooking. Lyn asks Lori if she was disappointed that Jack decided to give up football, but Lori says it's Jack she loves not his job. Lyn discusses how she never pictured Jack in an office job, but Lori thinks he'll be fine. Lori finds out from Lyn that Jack doesn't like mushrooms, but Lori says she has served them up to Jack and he hasn't complained.
Joe and Jack are discussing Lori in the pub. Jack says he is grateful for Lori's parents offering him the job as he doesn't have any skills other than kicking a ball into a net. Joe suggests coaching, but Jack is concerned about what the pay would be like. Jack then confesses he's lost everything he ever dreamed of, but continues to look on the positive side towards the job he has been offered. Joe tells him to take some time to think it through properly.
Karl and Susan are eating spaghetti together in their dressing gowns. Susan tells him he is a man of many talents. Lyn knocks at the door and disturbs them. She wants to borrow some cream, but Susan says she thinks they have used it all up (making gestures at Karl towards the direction of the bedroom). Lyn doesn't twig what Karl and Susan have been up to. Lyn starts discussing Lori with Susan, expressing her concerns about her, but realising Susan isn't really interested she leaves.
Summer is deciding how Steph's hair and make-up should be done for the parade. Max thanks Steph for what she is doing with Summer. Libby and Summer start to apply eye-shadow to Steph when Max comes in with a camcorder and starts recording everything. Libby then asks Summer where the make-up is from, to which Summer exclaims they were her mother's. Everyone including Max seems a little shocked by this revelation.
Lou is eating one of Rosie's oranges as Karl comes in and tells him that there is good news, as all his blood sugar levels have remained normal. Karl tells him his Kidney function may be returning to normal with little permanent damage and that he may be able to go home as early as tomorrow.
Libby has come round for dinner with Steph and Lyn. She starts complaining about it being too much at home with all her mum and dad's raunchy antics. Lori, Jack and Joe join them at the table for dinner. Steph asks how long Jack will be around for this time. Lori says the guy Jack is replacing at work is leaving at the end of the month, so he will be needed in a few weeks. Lyn apologises for the mushrooms in the dinner, but Jack says he likes them now.
Max, Summer and Rosie are watching the video he made of Steph being made-up earlier. They talk about how beautiful she looked and Max says they should do something for her to say ‘thank you'. Max ponders over what to get for her, and considers amongst other things getting a book, although Summer suggested her take her out for dinner. When Max leaves, Summer tells Rosie that she can tell her dad likes Steph.
Karl is reading Libby's journal on the computer screen to Susan, in which she has written some nice things about Drew. Libby comes home, and Susan suggests she could have it published, but Libby doesn't think so. She is writing about Drew for Ben's sake, rather than for others to read it. They suggest making the spare room into an office for her so she can write in peace.
It is the next morning. Summer and Steph are getting ready to go to the fashion parade. Lyn and Joe come out ready to go. They are going early to the parade so that Jack and Lori have time alone to talk. They are concerned Jack is getting cold feet about the trainee manager job. Summer is anxious to get going.
Lou arrives home with Karl. Rosie goes over to welcome him home and gives him some magazines. He thanks her, but she then leaves.
Jack expresses his concerns about the job with Lori, saying he doesn't think it's very ‘him'. Lori continues to be overly enthusiastic about the job, saying he'll feel better about it when he gets home to New Zealand. Jack tells her New Zealand is not his home. He says he still wants to be with her, but he wants to stick around in Erinsborough a bit longer with his family, to give himself time to think.
The mother-daughter fashion parade is taking place. Summer and Steph make last minute preparations before it is there turn to go onto the parade. Once on the catwalk a smiling Max can't take his eyes off Steph…
