Susan telling Libby she tried to pick up Tom.
Lil knocking back Allan's proposition.
Izzy propositioning Karl.
Izzy is pouring her heart out to Karl, saying that she really wants to be with him after she realised that he was being genuine and not like other guys who think she's a bit of fun on the side. She tells him that she didn't mean to say that he was too old for her as she was just ‘trying to drive him away'. Karl looks a bit skeptical but then starts to kiss her.
Rocco has come to visit Lou to try and offer him a deal on a horse. Lou knocks him back, telling him he knows all about his plans to do a switcheroo. Rocco denies knowing what he's referring to, but recalls a similar scam that Lou was involved in of which he made a lot of money from – not that he'd tip off the authorities. Lou refuses a bit more gently saying that money is short at the moment.
Stu walks up and quietly asks Lou what Rocco wanted to which Lou replies nothing at all.
The doors open and Susan, Libby and Ben walk in. They greet them enthusiastically, Stu telling Ben he looks more and more like his dad each day.
Susan notices Tom eating alone and walks up to him. She pulls out “An Affair to Remember” one of her favourite classics to which Tom agrees. She calls Libby over and introduces them telling Lib that she and Tom both love old movies. Susan invites Tom over to watch the movie at her house tonight – Tom agrees while Libby looks a bit amused.
David, having just come back from a run is greeted by an enthusiastic Lil. She tells him that she's been cooking all day for her man. Harold gives them an eye roll from the couch. David wonders what special day it is but Lil assures him that she just wants to fuss over her husband. Again, Harold shakes his head, in one can only imagine as disgust at their lovely dovey antics. Lil tells David that she's not going to her self defence class because it's become boring and besides, she's decided to do some yielding. ‘Yield away' says David as they start to get cozy in the kitchen, with Harold again from the couch shaking his head.
Marching into the office, Stu demands to know if the business with Rocco before had to do with Toadie's disappearance. He tells Lou that he's got contacts with the police if he wants to protection. Telling him he's just a trainee in nappies, Lou defiantly tells Stu that it had nothing to do with Toadie and that he should just leave it.
Tom has just gone to pay for his and Susan's coffee with Libby starts to tease her about Tom.
LIBBY: So, my mother and the handsome priest?
Susan however says it's just a friendship and she is enjoying her new single life. Seeing Sindi walking in, she invites her over to their table though Libby's a bit reluctant. Susan fusses that she is having a rough time. Lou offers Libby and Sindi some complementary cheesecake for although Sindi is a bit wary.
SINDI: Um, cheesecake is seventeen points.
Libby encourages her to eat some as Tom and Susan leave for their movie, taking Ben with her. Once alone, Sindi demonstrates her skill at tact.
SINDI: So. Susan was telling me that you had to go to Adelaide because you slept with a student! How did that come about?
David sneaks up and taps Harold on the shoulder who is peering out the windows looking for any signs of Gus. Lil tells that she ought to ring her mother and have her put a curse on Gus to ‘sort him out'. Harold is worried that this will affect their chances at the ‘Best Street Competition' as rumours and all sort of things can start. David agrees and says what about the holes that Harvey dug in the Scully's front as well! Lil thought that David had covered those holes up, but he's still worried that one of the judges might see. He's noticed that she has not spent much time with the girls but Lil says she wants to spend time with her favourite man. Once again, Harold from the couch gives them a shake of his head as he hears David saying that they can save some of the dessert ‘for later on'.
Sindi and Libby, now set with their delicious looking cheesecake and fruity drink, discuss Toadie's mysterious disappearance. Libby says that Toadie wouldn't just leave a text message or email to break up, that he would talk to Sindi face to face but Sindi is just skeptical that he ever loved her in the first place. Libby tells her that from Susan told her, he did but Sindi wanting to change the subject notes how yummy the cheesecake is.
Izzy, lying in Karl's arms on the bed talk that they wish it could be like ‘this all the time'.
IZZY: I can't believe how safe I feel in your arms.
KARL: I'm very glad
IZZY: You are a good man.
KARL: Mmm. I'm a wonderful man.
Izzy says she should probably go, but Karl thinks he can convince her to stay and starts to kiss her.
Susan is having a good cry at the end of ‘An Affair to Remember' as Libby and Sindi walk back in. Libby's amused at Susan's tears with Susan replying that they just don't make these classic movies any more. Sindi pipes up that she loves to cry at movies. Tom declines Susan's offer for coffee as he should go and get ready for tomorrow as he's planning something different. Susan wonders what it is, however Tom refuses to answer saying it has to be fresh for the congregation tomorrow. Susan, even more intrigued wonders what it is and says that she will to go to church tomorrow.
SUSAN: You know it's so nice to have a friend like Tom who doesn't have an agenda. I can just relax, I can be myself, I don't have to worry about any stupid misunderstandings!
Izzy wearing one of Karl's shirt walks in and pushes him out of the kitchen telling him that she'll make it breakfast. They start to play fight as to see who can butter the toast the best. Izzy reckons that she can do it with one hand tied behind her back, so Karl dares her. They soon get into mini wrestling match with jam ending up on Karl's nose as a result. This moves on to kissage which Izzy stops, saying that she doesn't deserve him but Karl reassures her.
“Today I want to speak about the world we live in. Try and understand its imperfections. Just because we follow our faith does that mean we're always right? I have to be honest with you. I've been told at times that times I can be emotional and unpropitious But when I see a girl who is pregnant, unmarried and frightened, my heart goes out to her and I want to make sure that it never happens again.”
Flash to a shot of Izzy looking forlorn as Karl comes in and notes that she's unusually quiet. The doorbell rings and despite Karl telling ‘Ninety-Nine that it's the Chief' we see that Libby is on the other side of the door. Walking in, Izzy quickly retreats into the bedroom with Libby telling Karl that they should speak right now.
Walking out, Tom is telling Susan he is disappointed he did not make much of an impact. Susan tells him that basically saying the church isn't always right will take some time. Tom tells Susan that they can maybe grab another DVD again. Walking away, Susan tips down her sunglasses and looks after him, to which Tom also does he walks away.
Izzy leaves and then Libby starts to rip into Karl. Telling him that she lied to him, that he told her that nothing was going on and never would be! Karl says that things have changed as he never believed anything would happen either. Libby says that it's even worse and did she just ‘click her fingers and you came running?' He tells her that they have feelings for one another that they want to explore. Libby can't understand that he's hurting the whole family over something so stupid.
LIBBY: You're a middle-aged man. Going weak kneed over some pretty young thing. If you can ever call her that. I'd call her mutton dressed up as lamb.
Tearfully, she tells him that when Drew died, she looked up to Karl as Ben's role model, but now, while Susan is acting with dignity she is just ashamed of him.
Susan having just come home notices that Libby is home early. Upset, Libby recalls to her that Izzy was over Karl's place…having stayed the night. Visibly upset, Susan tries to tell Lib that he's a single man now and that he's still her dad but Libby can't handle the fact he lied to her. She also can't understand why Susan is okay with this – isn't she angry? Of course Susan is angry but she can't be angry forever and what else can she do? Libby apologises for being so angry with her when she's really mad with Karl. She thought that due to their past history that they would eventually get together again. Susan thinks that the time though, will allow her to do some of her own things though she doesn't know what yet. Libby just wants them to get back together and really thought they would.
Izzy apologises for before. Karl tells her that it's just difficult for the change – especially with somebody so much younger. He wants to know that any relationship between himself and Izzy will be for the long haul, that there will be no secrets between one another as there is so much as stake. He says that while Mal and Libby know, Billy doesn't yet and he wants to personally tell him himself. However because he lives up in Queensland he'll be leaving that night to go visit him for a week. He thinks the time apart will let them think things through and confirm their feelings towards one another.
Looking down at her wedding band, Susan I guess has a revelation. She slips it off and places it in a jewellery box on the telephone table.
