Toadie apologizing to Stuart, who forgives him - Jack telling Edwina that it is over
As the bell rings, Jack and Taj pick up their books and leave, and Edwina is the main topic. Jack is expressing his opinion of her, saying that she is not right for him, and doesn't seem the trustworthy type. Taj gets a bit fired up at this, and tells him that she is smart, good looking and crazy about soccer. He also informs Jack that he doesn't pick Taj's dates anyway- and if he didn't know better, Jack was jealous. Taj leaves Jack to go meet Edwina at the coffee shop.
Libby is at the apartment when Stu rushes in. She points out that he is late, and he quickly apologizes. Stu rushes into the kitchen and asks Lib how she likes her coffee. She points out that she likes drinking things without mould growing on them, and Stuart then apologizes for not cleaning things up earlier. Libby tells him that she'll do it now, otherwise Ben will get sick- and that he owes her one. While Lib is cleaning, Stu is making instant coffee with water from the tap, but Libby then begins to talk about bills. She says that she needs $50 from Stu so it covers all the connection fees, etc. He asks her if he can pay it to her next Tuesday, however Lib pleads to him not to force her into the bill Nazi, because she needs it sooner. He excuses himself so he can check up on Steph at the garage, and Libby looks quite frustrated.
Nina and Boyd are arguing about an assignment when he notices Sky waiting outside his classroom. He excuses himself to go to the bathroom, and asks what she is doing there. Sky shows Boyd the note she wrote to Candice, saying sorry I stood you up but something extremely important came up, however I would like to see you again. Please go to go to Lassiter's at 7:00pm wearing a red rose. She asks where her pigeonhole and he tells her, waiting for Sky to put the not in. Sky laughs and tells him that he's going to do it, because it will look less conspicuous. Boyd has second thoughts, but agrees. Boyd then asks how the blue suit dude knows where she works… and she scribbles on a PS, explaining that he recognized her in an article in the paper about the school. Boyd and Sky grin at each other, and Sky insists to meet at 12 at the fruit mart to meet blue suit dude.
Sky and Boyd meet at the fruit mart, when she tells Boyd that he comes here everyday at midday to buy a piece of fruit- and today was apple day. Boyd laughs and says that Sky was strange for asking the check-out chicks. She smiles and insists that they watch their customers and learn the strangest things. They reach 'blue-suit's' car and attach the note. Boyd offers to get something to eat, and she insists that he is paying.
Harold is asking Edwina to taste test a new product 'tomato surprise' Edwina insists that it is a bit cheesy and the salsa is too hot, but then Jack interrupts her. He reminds her that she has been ignoring him, and that she should leave Taj alone. Edwina tells him that Taj is a nice person, and that it was a pity she didn't know him sooner- then she would have saved herself a lot of trouble. Taj turns up, and she goes to greet him, leaving Jack speechless.
Sky and Boyd are walking through the school, and she tells him that she better be kept updated about the Candice/blue suit scenario, as it will be the only laugh she gets one going back to WA. Boyd then suggest that they book a table at Lassiter's, to that they can keep an eye on them. Sky looks pleased and agrees with him. He tells her that he has had a good day with her, and she quickly agrees. Boyd heads back to class, and Sky smiles to herself.
Taj, Jack, Nina and Edwina are sitting round a table at the coffee shop. Nina breaks the awkward silence, and asks if they all want to go bowling sometime. They all agree, and Edwina and Taj go to get the orders. Jack asks Nina if she is crazy, but she reminds him how bad she feels for sniping at Edwina like that. She then realizes that Jack keeps changing his mind about Edwina and asks what's the story? One minute he wants her to be nice, and then he's telling her not to get involved with her. Jack just shrugs and says 'fine, we'll go bowling.'
Sky tastes Harold's cooking. She tells him that they are great, except it is a little bit cheesy. He curiously asks about the salsa, but she tells him that it is too mild. He shrugs and says that he cannot please everyone, and asks Sky to come up with a name. She suggests 'snack attack' but Harold disagrees. She insists that if he is targeting her age, he needs to talk the language. Sky suggests Monster Munchie T and they both laugh, however Harold then sighs and says to her that she laughs like her mother. Sky looks pleased, and Harold then asks her for a special meal tomorrow night before she goes back. She looks at her feet and confesses that she has plans with Boyd. Harold's face falls, but she tells him that they can have lunch during the day at the coffee shop. Harold looks pleased.
Taj and Edwina are talking about past relationships. Taj tells her that he got into something he couldn't handle and they both got hurt. Edwina just says to him that she has made a lot of mistakes recently. Taj looks surprised and informs her that she doesn't look like the foolish type. She smiles at him and thanks him. He then asks her if them meeting now is a foolish move, because he would like to continue. She smiles at him and says that she likes meeting him, and so far so good.
Connor and Toadie are telling Stu about the items they sold on the internet. Connor tells him that he got $10 for the boxer shorts, and that Toadie got $5 for his toothbrush. Stu looks amazed, and Toadie comes up with the idea to model the boxer shorts to hook people in. Connor agrees with him, and that there also needs to be a story behind the boxer shorts. He then suggests that his boxers helped him to win the lottery, but everyone else disagrees. Stu then raises his head and says that his shorts help him with the lottery, and Toadie laughs and says that it is a great idea. Connor looks shocked and says that Stu stole his idea. They all laugh.
Sky and Harold are watching a movie. Harold is asking questions about the movie, and Sky is politely answering them. She tells him that they don't have to watch this movie, she's seen it four times already. Harold says that he doesn't mind- but she then apologizes for making plans without asking him first. He tells her that is fine… it's just he had second thoughts whether they did connect. Sky insists that of course they did, and she even caught him saying 'gross' a few times! Harold sighs and says the he will miss her, and Sky informs him that she will miss him too, and that next time she will come back and stay longer. She smiles at him and says that when he relaxes he is actually kind of- Harold interrupts with 'hip' but she grins and tells him that he is cool. Harold chuckles and says that he is cool without his afro. Sky looks confused, but amused.
The blokes are watching sport and Libby is on the couch. She asks anyone if they want some tea- but they're too busy watching the match. She insists that she'll go, because it is getting too 'blokie' but they ask to stay and be an honorary bloke. Lib laughs and tells them she'll be right. Stu asks if she wants a life- but insists that it is a short walk.
Jack and Nina have finished watching a movie and Nina tells him that she has to go. He looks surprised at her leaving so early, but she tells him that she has stacks to do. She asks him to try and dig up something on Edwina, because she wants Taj to be happy- and there is just a gut feeling inside her not to trust her. Jack looks awkward.
Toadie asks Stu to try and sell something. Stu suggests unwashed socks. Connor tells him to make up a story to go along with the socks, and he come up with socks that went through a three week marathon. There is a knock at the door and Connor goes to answer it, while Stu and Toadie think of a good story. Connor comes back with a box containing Dee and Toadie's wedding photos. Toadie looks pensive, and Connor asks if he wants them to go. Stu places his hand on his shoulder and says that they are here for him.
Jack is on his mobile and a huffy Edwina notices Jack's number and asks what he wants. He tells her to keep away from Taj. Edwina laughs and asks him 'what gives you the right to choose who she talks to.' Jack tells her that he is worried about Taj, but most of all about Nina finding out. Edwina rolls her eyes and realizes that is why he wants her to go away- to save his own hide. She smiles sweetly into the phone, and says that if he is worried about Nina, to tell her himself, so she won't find out from him.
Stu and Connor are watching Toadie go through the wedding album. He points to a picture fondly and tells them that Dee would have loved that picture. Stu reminds him that it was an amazing day, and Toadie smiles fondly.
