Lou confessing to the police.
Izzy firing Sky.
Tom saying to Lyn that he knew she had feelings for him.
Lyn says that she might have had a crush on him but that was all. Tom says he doesn't want to judge, he just wants to clear the air. They agree that it's embarrassing to talk about, but Tom thinks it's affecting the way Lyn acts around him. “Or is it that those feelings never quite went away?” Lyn doesn't say anything.
Boyd is telling Sky all about what happened with Gus and Max, and how Max will be out of hospital the next day. Harold thinks he might invite Izzy over when she gets home from work so that she doesn't have to stay at home by herself. Sky looks unimpressed and lies to Harold about Izzy already having plans. Boyd looks at the sketchpad Sky is drawing, “Is that who I think it is?”
Tom and Lyn are chatting in the lounge room now, looking more comfortable around each other. Lyn tells Tom that going out with Joe didn't stop her feelings for Tom, but after a while she knew that Joe was her world, “him and the kids.” She has to ask though, “Was it just my imagination, or was I just a little bit special to you too?” “You were special to all us Scully boys,” he smiles and then gives an honest answer. “I was in love with you.” Lyn looks bashful and wonders if he joined the priesthood because of that, but he says it was something he'd been contemplating for a while before it. He jokes with her that she can “drop the devout Christian act” now.
Jack walks in with a poster that is amusing him greatly. It reads ‘30-year-old mutton dressed as lamb' with a cartoon picture of Izzy underneath it. Izzy isn't impressed and snatches it off him to throw away. Jack chides her about the news going around about her and Karl, “No wonder you didn't want to get serious with me, you'd prefer a middle-aged man.” Izzy's annoyed. “The reason why we never got together was because you were already in a torrid affair with yourself.” Lyn comes in and starts to say something to Izzy about Max but Izzy snaps at her and walks off.
Jack tells Tom that Lyn has roped him into helping with the working bee at the high school. Lyn rushes in and starts to nag Jack about something, getting a fright when she sees Tom there. He offers his help to clean up the school.
Sky storms in to collect some of her things. Harold comes in to show Izzy a poster he found of a cartoon girl on a bike that reads, ‘Don't get taken for a ride, this chick's over the hill'. “Is that that Farrah Fawcett person?” he asks, just as Izzy rips it up. She goes off at Sky, ranting about how she needs to be treated with respect and how Harold needs to choose between herself and Sky. Harold is thoroughly confused and doesn't understand why Izzy is talking about people being fired. “Is there something I should know?” he asks all befuddled. Izzy gets frustrated and goes on her break, calling Sky a spoilt brat.

Harold has got the gist of things now and he's not too impressed with what Sky did. She says that he never really sees what goes on. He insists that he does and wants Sky to apologise to Izzy and nicely ask for her job back. Sky looks very annoyed.
Susan and her teacher friend are cleaning while the friend goes on about how there are no good men left in the world.
Tom, Lyn and Jack walk in. Jack makes himself busy when he sees a cute girl in one of the classrooms. Lyn is about to start introducing Tom when he asks her not to introduce him as ‘Father', he just wants to be a lay person today. Lyn is hesitant at first but then agrees.
Susan's teacher friend checks Tom out and asks if he's single when Susan says she knows him. Susan looks ready to have some fun with the situation, “… Yeah!”

Harold calls himself the “one degree of separation” between Sky and Izzy and says that like it or not, they're going to have to learn to get along. He asks Izzy to give Sky her job back, but Sky should realise that she's on a trial. Izzy agrees, on one condition, that Sky takes back the “lie” about her age. She shows Sky her licence, which must now say that she's 26. Sky leaves to see Boyd.
Harold mentions to Izzy that he's heard the rumours going around about her and Karl, but Izzy sets him straight and says that they share feelings for one another. She senses his slight discomfort and says that she'd hoped “Harry” would have accepted, and supported her in this. “Karl's one of the most decent men I've ever met. And deep down I'm a decent person too.” Harold is compassionate “Ahh, no one is arguing with that.” He says that everyone with a good heart deserves happiness, “and you're certainly one of those.”
Sky and Boyd are “cleaning” a blackboard while chatting. Sky's telling him how she's going to get an Art grant to get some money so she doesn't have to put up with Izzy anymore.
Three girls come up to Jack and start fawning over him, saying that they watch him on Making Mansions and that they don't think he's a himbo. Jack's loving it.
Susan's teacher friend comes over to Tom and starts chatting to him. She asks what line of business he's in and he says he's a kind of counselor. Lyn and Susan watch on in the background in amusement.
Lou has just been in a meeting with detectives for two hours. He tells Connor that they were “kind” enough to tell him what the punishment might be. “Eighteen months to five years,” he says morosely.
Jack and Lyn have a bit of a family tiff (obviously some Lori issues are still there) but it turns into a jokey kind of mood and Lyn starts up a paper fight in the corridor which makes everyone join in… Except for Sky and Boyd who watch on in bewilderment in the classroom. “Okay, if I act like that at their age tell me to drown myself,” laughs Sky.
Lyn comes into the classroom just in time to hear Susan's teacher friend say, “Now that man can put his shoes under my bed any day!” Lyn quickly informs her that Tom's a priest much to her horror.
Susan, Tom, Lyn, Oscar and Jack are over having coffee after a hard day's work. When Lyn asks, Susan tells them that Toadie's been transferred to Erinsborough hospital and that he's still unconscious.
Lyn and Jack leave with Oscar, but Tom offers to stay behind to help Susan clean up. Susan thanks him for his advice about Jezebel Isabelle and that she feels she's got some dignity back now. He goes to leave but Susan says they could crack open a bottle of wine if he wanted. He seems pleased with this idea.
Connor asks Lou if there have been any buyers for number thirty. He says that the same people who bought his house are interested. Connor tries to cheer him up by showing him a flier for the ‘Best Brew in Victoria' competition. He thinks his brew would win in a cinch. It works. Lou looks happier and says they'll have to think of a very good strategy to win.
Tom and Susan are chatting about the priesthood and Susan says it must be lonely, “It's just, not being allowed to have any sort of physical relationship, I mean that just doesn't seem natural to me…” She gets quite embarrassed and apologises, but he likes that he has a friend who can be so blunt with him. “From now on if the conversation goes off limits, then lets blow the whistle, have a laugh about it, and move on!” She laughs, “Fair enough!”
Jack is about to go out when he sees Lyn asleep on the couch. The TV being turned off wakes her up. She's bit concerned that he's going out so late when he's got work in the morning, but she's also concerned that Tom's still at Susan's. Not that she was staying up to check or anything… but she thinks Jack should go over and see if anything's wrong. Jack doesn't think so and says he's just being social and getting to know people. “It's nice… um, he's making new friends… and… mmm,” Lyn mutters to herself oh so convincingly.
Tom is talking to Susan about how you have to make a sacrifice to be there for people all the time, even when you hang up the collar, “provided you make that sacrifice gladly”. Susan starts to say that if he is feeling unfulfilled in his role, he should be allowed the choice to “step out of that bind”. This has struck a raw nerve with Tom and he says that you don't dedicate yourself lightly to God, “that's the whole point”. He starts to ramble that his decision to go into the seminary was a life long commitment and he didn't mean to give out the wrong impression. Susan tries to back track what she said but Tom leaves politely, saying that he had a nice time talking. When he leaves, Susan wonders what she said to make him run like that.
