Gus ordering Boyd to sit and eat dinner then Boyd walking out.
Gus is severely ticked off that Boyd ruined the nice dinner. Izzy points out that no one asked him to do this. Summer asks if she can be excused twice but each time Gus tells her to finish her dinner – finally Izzy tells her she can go. Gus replies that he's just being a good mate and wonders if he should cancel his 2 day trip to the Yarra Valley to go and find some wines for the pub, as Max can't go but Izzy says they'll be fine. Staring intently at Izzy, Gus tells her he heard about the lift incident. He's thoroughly disgusted about her and ‘that old lecher' and tells her that he acts so weird because he's just jealous. Izzy reassures him that he's her guy.
Karl has come by to collect some odd bits and pieces, so that Scott can make use of the spare room. He picks up some old textbooks as he and Susan remissness about the old days. Karl says it's a great thing what Susan is doing for Scott, Susan agrees telling him about the heartbreaking message that Scott left for Toadie a few days ago. Karl mentions that Scott also asked him for drugs, but if anyone can help Scott, Susan can.
Susan and Lil are discussing Scott staying with Susan – Lil wonders how she can sleep at night with him running around. Susan thinks Lil is being too hard on him, that hitting Serena was an accident and that her experience has taught that Scott does deserve a second chance. Suddenly Lil spots a seemingly young, attractive mystery man and encourages Susan to say hello to him.
LIL: You know what they say about supermarkets, they're meant to be the best pickup joints in the world!
Susan is very, very wary of the idea.
LIL: Go on! What have you got to lose?
SUSAN: Oh you know. My dignity. My self respect!
LIL: Well you can get those back in the car park.
Max, looking very sickly and tired, meets Summer in foyer – telling her to visit him soon. She meets Gus in the kitchen, telling him that she's going to go visit Declan. Unfortunately, Gus tells her that Max told her that she has to do her homework. Summer tries to tell him that she just saw Max, but Gus just says that's what he was told and he's sorry but he'll be around to make it fun. Sarcastically, Summer goes “Whoopee!” and walks out.
Lou, about to buy some tomatoes looks at the price tag ($7.99 k/g) and places them back down. We then see Harold coming in, thoroughly enjoying what seems to be a ‘girlie magazine'.
HAROLD: Oooh. That is spectacular.
Seeing Lou, he quickly puts it in his basket. Lou tells Harold that he's found a prospective buyer for his house, some sort of Investment Group and all his fingers are crossed.
Cut to Lil and Susan, when they once again see the Mystery Man again. Leaving Susan behind, she walks up to him and asks if he can get a bread stick that's on a high shelf – while checking out his profile. She tells Susan that he's definitely buying for one, and that there's no wedding ring, so he's fair game!
Stumbling into the kitchen, Max asks Gus if he's called Karl as it's not getting any better. Gus says he has but he's always gotten an answering machine, but volunteers to call him now. He picks up the phone, but it's quite clear that he's punching in another number – telling Max that it's the answering machine. Max goes back to bed but tells Gus when he gets through, to fit him into any available appointment.
Mystery Man has dropped an apple out of his basket and Lil tells Susan that this is her chance. To shut her up, Susan approaches him, picking up his lost apple. Susan cautiously approaches Mystery Man, stuttering a bit about the now, bruised apple. She finally comes out and asks if he would like to have a coffee with her sometime, but he says that he can't. Feeling the fool, she goes back to Lil, telling him he said no.
SUSAN: Oh of course he said no! And he probably thinks I'm some sort of raving sex maniac!
David is cleaning up Shadow's (he's dubbed her ‘Peewee') mess with paper towelling as Lil comes home with the groceries. They both wonder where Serena is and David says she'd better not be with Scott. Changing her tune, ‘Lil says that they're just kids and Susan has told her that Scott isn't too bad. David's convinced that Scott is just a potential thug, but Lil argues that Susan has had loads of experience with kids and to just leave it. She tells David that she's going to another self-defence class tonight. He's not too happy about it and asks he she wants a lift there, but Lil says that the girls usually use the walk to warm themselves up.
Asking how Izzy how Max is, Karl says to call him anytime if they need it. They soon start bickering toward one another, obviously still tense about the lift incident.
IZZY: Anything else to go with the sandwich?
KARL: That depends. Is it poisoned?
IZZY: Not unless Harry is trying to bump you off. You know my life's to full to bother with petty revenge.
IZZY: Give it a rest.
KARL: Hey hey manners, I'm a customer.
IZZY: If you want something, then order it.
KARL: Well you know, I might have a piece of the tart.
(Izzy turns around)
IZZY: Which one?
KARL: The sour one making the sandwiches.
IZZY: You are so pathetic.
KARL: Not quite as pathetic as you. Trying to get at me by upsetting my daughter.
IZZY: Oh Karl I don‘t know what's going on in your head, but I'm with Gus.
KARL: You know, they say the truth is revealed under pressure. Veritas Inextrimas. Like when you're stuck in a lift?
IZZY: That'll be five dollars, thanks.
KARL: You know Izzy you wanted me, as much as I wanted you. There's no point in denying that.
IZZY: Can I get you anything Susan?
KARL: Ha ha, good on you.
(Karl turns around to reveal that it is indeed Susan)
SUSAN: No thanks. There's nothing here I want.
Erinsborough High - Self Defence Class
Susan is taking out all her aggression on the punching bag, and consequently Const. Allan Steiger who's holding it. “You pig!” and other extremities are being shouted out, ending with a good “I hate you, I HATE YOU!” The girls in the class cheer her on. Steiger gets Lil to show her what she can do, but she doesn't quite match up to the calibre of Susan. He mentions that there is a technique using the guy's leverage that he can show and due to popular demand by the other woman (and some egging on by Susan) he prepares to show Lil what this technique is.
Gus is yelling at the football on radio like a crazy person, when Summer walks in to get a drink. She tries to go and see Max again, but Gus tells her that he's asleep and to go and do her homework first. Izzy then comes in, also asking how Max is – Gus tells her that sleep seems to be doing a good job.
Erinsborough High - Self Defence Class
David is walking through the halls, muttering excuses to himself as to why he's come to spy on Lil. He hears a loud cheer and walks into the Self Defence Class room, telling them that he's looking for his wife…as he notices that Lil has Steiger pinned to the floor.
Lil accuses David of spying and consequently embarrassing her in front of the class.
DAVID: I wasn't spying, I was just being a dutiful husband.
LIL: A dutiful stickybeak!
Lil then realises that David is indeed jealous, but points out that Allan is not her type at all, though he's physically fit – he is not David. She then demonstrates how she pinned him to the ground, at the same time as Harold walks in and apologies for the bad timing. He tells them that he's running late for the St Joseph's Fete – a fundraiser restore their roof. David wonders if Harold gave that all up, but Harold says no such thing, he tells them to come.
St Joseph's Church Fete
There is a total fete atmosphere – fairyfloss, cakes, popcorn, merry-go-round – and we hear Harold in the background calling the spinning wheel. Susan and Lyn go buy some raffle tickets off Harold and then notice Lou next to him. He tries to sell them a set of steak knives…except there are only 3 in a packet. Walking away, they laugh about ‘Lil's adventure in the self defence class, but Susan thinks it serves her right for what she did to her with the Mystery Man.
Gus and Izzy are just about to go the Church Fete when Gus calls for Summer to come in. Izzy obviously was looking forward to spending some alone time with Gus, but he shrugs it off. Summer walks in and seems pretty pleased about not being confined to her room.
St Joseph's Church Fete
Lou excitedly tells Harold has just received news that the Investment Group are going to let Lou stay in his house until they take over it – rent free! Finishing up buying some jam, Susan and Lyn end up in viewpoint of one of those cutout boards – where you stick your face in the hole and you take a photo. Susan suddenly points out “the clown!” ala. Mystery Man to Lyn, but Lyn exclaims that it's Dennis! Or Tom – Joe's brother she should say. Tom steps up from behind the cutout and reveals that he is wearing priest's collar – Susan stammers and runs away even though Lyn wants to introduce them.
Elsewhere, Gus is about to go and leave on his trip to the Yarra Valley. He kisses Izzy goodbye and asks to say goodbye to Summer for him and wizzes away on his motorbike.
Max, looking so much worse stumbles into the foyer calling for Gus or Izzy…but soon collapses unconscious onto the floor bringing the coat and shoe rack with him.
