Nina telling Taj that it's over. Karl admitting to Lori that she may never walk again
A doctor is pushing Lori's foot and is asking if she can feel it. She tells him she can't. The doctor then asks Lori if she can try to lift her foot up. Lori tries to concentrate and is unsuccessful. Jack sees how frustrated and upset Lori is and tells the doctor to take a break.
Lyn and Joe are walking up the corridor towards Lori's room when they hear her exclaim 'Just let the man do his job will you Jack!' They rush to see what's going on, and Joe pulls Jack aside while Lyn comforts Lori. Jack is angry about the doctor pushing Lori so hard, and upsetting her. Joe tells him not to worry so much, but Jack interrupts saying first he had to be there for her and now to back off a bit; what should he do? Joe suggests he needs to go back to school, have a break from all this.
Steph and Lib are in the coffee shop, with Steph fuming about how Max never said anything about how he feels about her. She shakes her head and says that getting feelings from Max Hoyland is as bad as trying to chisel a bag of frozen peas out of a frozen freezer. Lib just laughs, but then becomes serious asking about Alex. Steph sighs and tells her that it's not fair leaving with Alex when she is still not over Max and that she will have to back out.
Nina sees Taj and calls out to him. He ignores her so she catches up to him. She asks if he has seen Lori. Taj shakes his head. Nina then asks about Taj getting her messages. Taj glares at Nina and reminds her what he said when they broke up. Nina sighed and once again tells him that she still wants friendship. Taj storms off telling her that there will be no friendship. Taj walks into his class and Libby asks him how he is. Taj looks at her and tells her that he is fine… simple.
Jack asks Lori if she wants the window open. Lori shakes her head then admits to Jack that the last few days he has been great, but he needs to go back to school. He cannot spend all his time around Lori or else he will fall behind, if not fail. Jack looks pensive but changes the subject, asking if she has told her parents. Lori admits she hasn't but there is no point worrying them, because she is going to get better soon.
Karl, Lyn and Joe are talking about Lori's progress. Lyn is worried by the way Lori is so upbeat, and thinks that she is in denial. Karl tells Lyn not to worry, Lori's attitude is quite positive at the moment, and that's what she needs at the moment.
Steph and Alex are in the middle of a picnic. Steph comes right out saying she can't come on the trip, because there is a man in her life; and even though it didn't work out, she is still not over him. Alex is disappointed, and asks if it is anyone he knows but Steph quickly denies saying he is a total stranger. She apologizes and suggest to go with his friend Kenny. Alex reminds her that Kenny has already left, and that they were supposed to meet up in Cairns. He re-assures her saying it is better he find out now, but seems very put out.
Libby is lecturing the class about journalism, when the bell rings. She asks if Taj can stay back a moment.
Nina sees Jack at school and asks how Lori is, while giving him notes for Lori to catch up on. Jack thanks her and tells her that Lori wants to see her. Nina smiles but then tells him that they need to talk. Jack interrupts saying it's over, but Nina tells him that she understands nothing will happen with Lori in the state she is, but she still cares about Jack. A lot.
Lib asks Taj if the is worried about Lori. Taj just looks at the ground before grumbling 'yeah' He apologizes for not taking notes, but Libby just smiles and tells him he can catch up another time. She asks him again if he is ok, and he says yes and leaves.
Jack approches Taj and tells him that Lori wants to see him, but he has no idea why she would want to. Taj walks off and Lib just watches them.
In the coffee shop Karl asks Lyn and Joe if she is looking forward to the ultrasound. Lyn gasps and tells Karl that she has almost forgotten. He smiles and asks if they want to know the sex of the baby. Joe says yes at the same time Lyn says no. They look at each other and state why they do/don't want to know. Lyn believes it is more traditional and for the surprise, but Joe thinks it is easier to think of a name.
Lib comes into the coffee shop then and tells Karl that she may not get the position after all. She had just come from a chat with the 'barking ham' and that hasn't helped her chances. Karl tells her not to give up yet, as she has the interview this afternoon. They leave and we get another shot of Joe and Lyn arguing.
Taj knocks on Lori's door with flowers in his hand. She smiles and tells him that she was hoping he'd come. Lora asks Taj how he is going, and Taj just tells her that he is fine. She then asks about Nina but he just cuts her off telling her that it is over. Lori then beckons Taj to come closer, and reminds him what happened was not his fault. They were mucking around, and it was a total accident. Taj shakes his head saying that he shouldn't have been chasing her but Lori interrupts saying that if anything she shouldn't have been running. She then finishes the conversation telling him not to go on a guilt trip because that is not what either of them need right now. Taj says 'ok'.
Steph is leaving the garage, when Alex visits her. He asks again if she want's to go on the trip again, but just as friends. Steph tells him the timing's all wrong, and it won't work. Alex just asks her to think about it, and to get back to him tonight. He leaves Steph looking pensive.
Lyn and Joe are doing the ultrasound and are looking at images of the baby. The nurse tells them that the baby is in perfect health and they both beam. She then asks if they want to know the sex of the baby, and Joe says no. Lyn looks at him and smiles.
Libby is filling in for a substitute, and gives the class a case study to do. Taj is seated next to Jack, but after a few seconds of sitting there Taj walks out. Lib calls out after him. Jack just sits there.
The ball goes. Lib approaches Jack and asks him if it is fair cutting Taj out like that. Jack tells her that it was his fault, but Lib shakes her head and says it was no one's fault… it was an accident. There is no one to blame.
Alex is serving at the pub when Steph walks in claiming she had made her decision. Alex leans in and is overjoyed when She tells him that she would love to come. However there are conditions:
1. No cheesy music
2. She gets to control the first 500km of the trip… but Alex beats her down to 300km
3. The begin as friends and at the end of the trip they are still friends.
Karl is looking after Ben once Libby leaves for her interview. She twirls around and asks how she looks. Karl looks at her proudly, and tells her she looks so beautiful, she is sure to be a hit. Lib grins and Karl wishes her good luck as Lib leaves.
Lori is talking to Jack about Taj when Jack tells her to leave Taj out of things, as he can look after himself. Nina arrives to visit with some chocolates. Lori is thrilled because she can still eat chocolate, something they haven't stopped her from doing. Lori tells Jack that she wants to be alone with Nina because they need to have a 'girly' chat. Jack leaves and Nina nervously sits down. Lori takes a deep breath and tells her that she wants an honest answer… and it is about Jack. Nina looks guilty and uncomfortable.
