Serena and Sky talking about finding what out Stingray's tattoo says.
Stingray catching Boyd checking out his butt while getting changed, and getting the wrong idea.
Stingray getting dacked and Serena finding out the tattoo says “Shazza”.
Lou getting sentenced to 3 years in prison.
Lou is getting escorted out of the courthouse by two police officers. Just as he's about to get in the police car, Toadie, Sindi, David and Harold come running up and assure him that they'll do everything they can to get him out. Lou is taken away without a word.
Lou is taken to a guard at a desk. The guard tells him to empty his pockets, watch and jewellery into a container, which he does while the guard fills out some paperwork. He is given a uniform and told to change into it. Lou is taken aback when he realises he has to get changed in front of the guy. The guard gives him a “strict rules” lecture, and Lou gives in and gets changed.
Toadie is wondering what he did wrong. Sindi and Harold assure him that he didn't and nobody else could have represented him better. Toadie says that the next step is to lodge an appeal, but doesn't know what grounds to set it on. David and Sindi suggest petitions and letters to the editor. Harold says Lou is a fighter, he'll tough it out until he can leave.
Montage – Kennedy and Bishop houses
Serena sits down in the dining area of the Bishop house with what appears to be homework, but opens her exercise book to a page where she as written “Shazza” all over it in different ways.
Stingray, in the Kennedy house kitchen, takes out a bottle of bleach and puts some on a cloth.
Serena continues to write the word “Shazza”.
Stingray pulls down his pants.
Serena is turning the page all around, trying to make it make sense.
Boyd comes into the house and sees Stingray applying the bleach to his tattoo. “What the hell are you doing, mate?” he asks. “Nothing,” Stingray replies.
Sky walks over to Serena and asks what she's doing. “Nothing,” Serena answers. Sky looks at Serena's page and realises: “Stingray's bum tatt!” Serena explains that she's seeing if it could spell something different, like back to front or upside down. Sky looks at it and says “Oh, no, it still says Shazza”. Serena wonders what it is. Is it short for Sharon or Shannon? Sky is impressed with Stingray: “a bum-tatt is a statement. I don't really know what he's trying to say, but he's definitely putting it out there.” Serena says that what it says is that Shazza is the most important thing in his life. He never told her about Shazza, and he said that Serena is his first and only girlfriend.
Boyd tells Stingray he's insane. He asks how long it's been there. A couple years, he says. Boyd says it probably won't come off now, but Stingray says he hasn't tried bleach before.
More theories about the bum-tatt – maybe it's someone from a TV show or movie, maybe a school teacher. Maybe it IS his ex-girlfriend – Shazza from Colac, a skanky chick with red hair and an allergy that forces her to live in a bubble.
Boyd continues trying to get information from Stingray about the bum-tatt. Stingray won't say anything, and continues trying to get the tattoo off. Boyd tells him the only to remove it is with laser treatment, but doesn't know where to go for that. Maybe a plastic surgeon, and it hurts a lot. Boyd suggests distracting her with romantic gestures enough so she'll forget about it. “You're a genius!” Stingray says. “But I'll need your help.”
Sky tells Serena to stop obsessing. Lil comes in with groceries and comments that she bumped into the priest from her church. Sky comments that Lil hasn't been to church for months. Lil said she didn't know what to say to him so she invited him over for dinner. Serena says that David's going to freak. Lil says that everyone will have to grin and bare it. Lil said that she felt trapped. She even volunteered herself for some church activities. She tells Serena she'll have to help with the cooking, to Serena's annoyance.
Lou is taken to his new cell, his arms loaded with bed clothes. The guard refuses to tell him who his cellmate is. Lou asks if he knows Rocco, and the guard again refuses to give any information, the word “rules” coming up again. He tells Lou his cellmate is assisting in the infirmary and won't be back til morning, so Lou can spend some time alone finding his bearings. He leaves Lou alone in his cell.
Sindi is coming home and is about to open the door when she hears Stingray and Boyd engaging in an unusual conversation.
BOYD: Are you sure you want to do this?
STINGRAY: Yeah, mate, I'm positive.
BOYD: Alright, drop 'em. Bend over, brace yourself.
STINGRAY: Stop it! It tickles!
BOYD: Yeah, right-o, Elmo, stop your whinging!
STINGRAY: I'm not whinging. I'm just saying, it tickles.
BOYD: Well do you want me to stop?
STINGRAY: No, don't stop. Just… press harder… Yeah, that's better…
BOYD: Ohh, yeahhh!
Both boys laugh.
Sindi decides she can't take anymore of what she's hearing, and opens the door, announcing her entrance with a couple of loud, fake, warning coughs.
Boyd and Stingray both suddenly stand up, Stingray pulls up his pants.
“Okay,” Sindi says. “What is going on here?”
The guard comes back and gives Lou his schedule, and asks Lou if he's on any medication, or has any reason why he's not fit enough for the duties he has to do. Lou says of course he's fit enough, he owns a car yard, and should be there right now. A bell rings, and the guard tells him it's the dinner gong, and Lou's down for first sitting in the dinner hall. Lou says he isn't hungry but the guard forces him to go, this is his new life, he has to get used to it.
Stingray has again dropped his pants, and is explaining to Sindi what was going on. He asked Boyd to write Serena's name on his butt, so that “as soon as Serena sees what's on THIS cheek, she'll forget about what's on this cheek.” Sindi says that it's not a real tattoo. Stingray says that it's permanent texta, won't rub off, so anyone will think it's a real tattoo. And it'll do until he can get it done for real. Sindi doesn't think it's a good idea. “If you get a tattoo for every girl you go out with, you'll run out of skin before you're 25.”
“I'd have run out last year,” Stingray says. Sindi tells him he should tell Serena who the mysterious Shazza really is.
Serena comes around and demands to know who Shazza is, it's driving her crazy. She wants to know why she's so important that he wanted her name plastered on her butt for the rest of his life.
“Glad you mentioned that, “ Stingray says. “Because…” He shows her his new “tattoo”.
SERENA: That wasn't there this morning.
STINGRAY: Uh, fresh off the press.
SERENA: Doesn't it take a week to heal, you're meant to wear a bandage?
STINGRAY: It's Friday night, let's go see a movie!
SERENA: Stingray, that's texta, how stupid do you think I am?
STINGRAY: It was a trial run, just to see if you liked the style. (Begins to drop pants) Do you like the style?
He runs out the house after Serena, pants around his ankles.
Harold plans to try and call Lou. He's not sure if prisoners are allowed to take phone calls, but he's going to try. David, meanwhile, is unimpressed that Lil invited Father Popovich to dinner. She also tells him that to cover for not going to church, she made a little white lie, hinting that she and David are having marriage problems. Lil says they can be entirely her fault if he wants. David eventually accepts things, asking “how do you get yourself into these situations?”
Harold and Max have no luck calling Lou. Sky enters the scene, and Max asks Sky if she and Serena want to be ushers at the wedding (of course, this was Lyn's idea). Sky says she thinks it would be cool. Serena and Stingray enter the house, still arguing. Serena says she wants to know who Shazza is. “I told you,” Stingray says, “That's all over!” Still having not done up his pants, he accidentally drops them and trips over. David is able to see his butt. “That's it! That's the bum!” he yells as Stingray leaves. “That was the bum that's been mooning me! That's the bum!”
David comes to complain to Susan about Stingray's mooning. Unfortunately, Susan isn't in, so he tells Sindi.
DAVID: He's been mooning me regularly now for weeks.
DAVID: It's very upsetting and – you do know what mooning is, don't you?
DAVID: It involves exposing your bottom at passers-by. I know, it's very upsetting. He does it from behind the bushes when I'm driving to and from work. I haven't actually caught him yet.
SINDI: How do you know it's Stingray.
DAVID: He's got very distinctive marks on one cheek. Actually, on both cheeks now.
STINGRAY (who was lying on the lounge, playing a Game Boy and listening in): Nah, the other one came off with turps. Hi, Dave.
DAVID: You! Do you know how insulting it is to have that shoved in my face every day?
SINDI: He's not gonna do it again. I'm make sure. You won't, will you Stingray?
STINGRAY: Nah, no fun now being busted!
David threatens to call the police if he does it again. “I bet you used to do it when you were a kid, Dave,” Stingray says. Sindi comes to the rescue, telling Stingray that David is upset. While her back is to David, she gestures that he should apologise, which he does.
Toadie is pulling an all-nighter, trying to find grounds for an appeal for Lou.
Lou lies in bed, staring at the ceiling.
Toadie sits on the couch with a coffee, still reading a law book.
Lou, still in bed.
Toadie, onto another book.
Lou looks at the photos above the other bed, trying to get an idea of what he's like. The light above him suddenly goes out.
Toadie jumps up excitedly after reading something in his book.
In the morning, Toadie has fallen asleep at the desk, and wakes up when a few books fall off the edge and make a noise.
Toadie tells Lou his plan for getting an appeal and getting him out on bail. He also talks about what the rest of the street is doing about it. Lou blames Toadie, telling him that none of what everyone is doing now would be necessary if he'd done his job in the first place. Lou starts getting more upset, screaming to get him out of there. The guard takes him away.
Coffee Shop (outside)
Harold sees David at one of the tables, organising a large pile of clipboards and petitions. Harold is impressed. David assures Harold that prisons are pretty civilised now, but Harold doesn't buy it. He picks up one of the petitions and takes it over to some people and asks them to sign it.
Max takes a petition for the pub. He asks Harold about someone to make a wedding cake and Harold gives him the details. Max hesitantly accepts when Harold asks if he wants a coffee and Harold can't work out what's wrong with the coffee. People were drinking it faster than he could make it, drinking it by the litre. Boyd asks if he can hurry up and try on his suit, he wants to meet Stingray at 10 to skateboard. “I hope you're not indulging in any of his other disgusting habits,” David says. Confused, Boyd shakes his head. Max tells Harold he better go, he'll get the coffee later. “No you won't,” Harold says, “you'll have it now, and you'll enjoy it.”
Stingray is still depressed about how things are with Serena, and he consoles himself with fish fingers. Sindi tells him not to give up, and encourages him to come clean about Shazza. She says that Serena has been completely honest with him, and she's not happy to learn that he hasn't been. Stingray insists that he can't tell the truth. Sindi suggests maybe he could tell her, and then the two of them can plan how to tell Serena. Stingray won't tell her. Sindi warns him that the more he hides it, the worse Serena will think it is.
Toadie is on the phone, trying to arrange an appeal hearing for Lou. Sindi comes over and Toadie tells her how things went that morning with Lou. Toadie feels like he's failed. Sindi assures him that they'll get him out of there.
Lou returns to his cell with some reading material. His cellmate is back. “G'day,” he says to Lou. Lou returns the greeting. The man sits up and Lou finally learns who it is. “Howdy, neighbour,” says Darcy Tyler with a laugh.
