Heather wants Boyd to go with her to the school formal.
Libby tells Karl and Susan she's been offered a teaching job in the country.
Joe tells Karl he wants to know the sex of the baby.
Summer is teaching Boyd to dance at No. 32. Boyd sits down and says it's really lame and no girl's worth all that trouble. Summer encourages him to get up again and tells him not to be discouraged, but to let the music take over. Max comes in the house and watches without them knowing. Boyd tells Summer, "It's so tragic." Summer explains to him that if he really likes Heather, he has to do stupid things to please her, because that's the price of love. Max watches and smiles at Summer's wisdom.
At the Scully's Harold presents Lyn with a present for the baby: a toy saxaphone. Lyn tells Harold he shouldn't have. Then she looks at Joe and says, "Imagine the noise the baby can make with this?" Joe looks at Harold and says, "Lynnie's right Harold. You shouldn't have. You really shouldn't have." Harold laughs and asks Lyn if she knows what the sex of the baby is. Joe tells him they decided not to. Lyn says to Joe, "Speak for yourself." Joe looks suprised and asks if she's been to see Karl. Lyn insists she hasn't, that she just has a feeling about it. She explains to Harold how she has a feeling it's a boy because boys sit higher up than girls during pregnancy. While Lyn's explaining to Harold, Joe smiles secretly to himself because he knows the baby isn't a boy. Lyn says how she's had a lot of practice and she should know all the signs by now. Joe tells her she shouldn't make up her mind about it too soon. Lyn tells him that ofcourse she isn't certain, but she's glad he painted the nursery blue. Joe is smiling, then he suddenly looks very worried.
Libby discusses her country job Karl and Susan at the pub. Karl says it will be good for her, while Susan starts telling her how awful her experiences teaching in the country were. Libby tells Susan that she doesn't have any choice because she needs experience. Valda comes out and tells every one they have finished with the Japanese food and are now doing a week of food from Greece. Valda then gets two plates out of a box and smashes them on the floor. Lou rushes out and asks what's going on. Valda explains she's just adding a little colour by doing a bit of Greek tradition. Lou tells her that if she had researched more she would know that people in Greece use specially made plates, not the ones they serve food on. He then tells her to clean up the mess and to not subject his customers to further trauma.
At No. 32, Summer is teaching Boyd "the macarena", with help from the macarena music. Max walk in and starts dancing too, which causes Boyd to sit down again. Max tells Summer about a dance he knows, "the smurf" but he can't remember how it all goes. Summer turns off the music and says she has a friend who probably knows that dance, so she goes off to ring her up. Boyd tells Max he wants to do his homework. Max smiles and tells him he can see he's really not enjoying it. Boyd tells him he just thinks the formal is a bit daggy, and he's only going because Heather wants him to. Max says he can imagine why she does, because it's not often people are able to get dressed up. Boyd still doesn't look convinced. Max tells him how beautiful and radiant his mum looked at their formal and how his heart stopped for a whole minute when he saw her in her dress. Max promises Boyd the formal will be worth it, especially for the after party.
At the pub, Susan goes off for a minute and Libby tells Karl she can see Susan's still upset about her going to the country. Karl tells her it's just because Susan will miss her. He tells that she should seize the opportunity and go, because she's had a dreadful year and needs something good to happen. Libby tells him it won't be forever. Karl tells he knows it won't be, but he's going to miss her and Ben like crazy.
Joe, Max and Boyd play football outside in Ramsay Street. Summer asks Joe if he knows when Steph is getting back. He tells her he's not sure. Karl comes out and the football flies near him. He makes an attempt to catch it even though his hands are full. He tells them if his hands were free he would have put them all to shame. Joe asks Karl if he wants to come on a jog. Karl tells him maybe some other time because he's getting ready for his first football game. Joe says he'll come along and asks Max as well who agrees to come. Karl looks a bit worried like he doesn't want them to come and tells them it's not that important, but they still want to come. Lyn comes out and asks Karl to come over because she wants to ask him something. When he comes up she asks him if she can have a checkup that day. Karl tells her he's got some free time coming up, so she can come over to the surgery.
At the surgery, after the tests, Karl tells Lyn everything is normal. Lyn says she's glad to hear that. Then she tells Karl she thinks that the baby is a boy. She asks him if he thinks that's true that mothers instinctively know the sex of their babies. Karl says that he thinks that in some cases it is. Lyn asks if he thinks she's right in this case. "What do you mean?" Karl asks. Lyn starts to beg Karl, and says she knows her and Joe agreed not to find out, but she just can't stand it anymore.
At the Scully's, Joe comes in from just hanging up the washing. Lyn tells him she's making some food for the football game. Joe thanks her and says it will be great for half-time. Lyn changes the subject and tells Joe that maybe the should repaint the nursery with something more neutral. Joe looks suspicious and asks her why the change of heart. She tells him that there's no reason. Joe asks her if she knows something for sure. She tells him she doesn't because they had an agreement.
At Karl's football game. Susan is still sad about Libby going. Libby promises she won't be gone very long and she'll be fine. Susan tells her she knows it will be allright, but she is just going to miss her. Harold comes over and sits down with Joe and the Hoylands to watch the game. Karl suddenly grabs the football and starts running. Everyone starts to cheer him on, but he is knocked down and loses the football. Everyone looks worried that he could be hurt, but he's fine and continues the game.
At the Scully's, Valda is making some food and looks a bit down, which Lyn notices. She asks Valda what's wrong. She tells Lyn that Andreas has postponed his visit again. Lyn tells her she thinks Andreas is thinking up a suprise at that very moment. Lyn looks slightly in pain and Valda asks what's wrong. She tells Valda her backs just a bit sore. Valda looks suprised and says that usually the backpain stops after the first three months. She continues in saying, "There is worse to come isn't there? Before you know it you won't be able to get a decent night's sleep because you're too big." Then she looks a bit nervous, and says, "Some said."
At Karl's football game, Summer begs Boyd to continue in helping he with the paper round because of the girl who bullied her. Boyd agrees, but says he'll only do it for a bit longer. Joe and Max comment on how Karl is staying clear of everything, especially the ball. Susan comes up and tells them she doesn't see them out there giving it a go and it's harder than an occasional jog to the fridge or just coaching a game. Karl suddenly leaps out towards the ball and grabs it, everyone starts cheering for him. Karl, still holding the football, dodges all the other players and kicks the ball into the goal. Everyone starts cheering excitedly. Harold and Max are so excited they hug each other, while Susan hugs Joe, but he simply pats her on the back.
At the Scully's, Lyn finally tells Valda the baby is a girl. Valda is pleased and asks if Joe's happy about it. Lyn tells her she hasn't actually told him yet. Valda looks suprised. Lyn tells her how she realizes it wasn't a boy because she wasn't getting the same cravings as with Jack. Lyn smiles at Valda and asks her if she regrets not having any children. Valda tells her it's water under the bridge now, and she does have her dogs. Lyn tells her she has got Andreas as well. Valda tells her that she's right and sometimes your plans don't work out and you just need to get on with your life. "Here's to the new baby girl." says Valda with a smile.
At the pub, Karl tells everyone about his victory in the football game. Lou tells him he wish he was there to see it. Summer laughs and tells Karl he should tell Lou about when the ball went out of bounds and hit an old lady. Karl stops smiling and says that she wasn't hurt. Susan laughs and says that the old lady wasn't hurt, that she just fell over because she was so happy that the ball was kicked by the most handsome player on the team. Lou starts laughing. Susan says, "He might be the oldest player on the team, but he has the best legs." Karl starts to look a bit proud.
At the Scully's, Lyn says she's glad Karl had a good game. She tells Valda and Joe how Karl was nervous that morning and forgot to warm up his stethescope. Joe tells Lyn that she never told him she was going to see Karl. Lyn tells him to stop fussing that it was just a routine checkup and all the tests were fine. Joe starts to walk out, then he comes back and asks Lyn and Valda what's going on. Lyn tells him she went to find out the baby's sex. Joe tells her that they had an agreement and it was supposed to be a suprise. Lyn says she's sorry but she couldn't stand it anymore. Joe asks Lyn what example this will set her (the baby) when she grows up. Then Lyn realizes Joe went to Karl as well, because she hadn't told him it was a girl yet. Lyn and Joe both start laughing and happily hug each other.
