Recap
Jack's car crash, Mac taking his mobile while the paramedics get Jack.
Mac telling Stu she's been letting personal stuff get in the way of her job.
Serena attempting to break up with Stingray, who says the pills are making him normal.
Bishop house
Serena is talking on the phone with someone, and says that her parents will kill her if they found out she met this person. Lil and Sky come in from the backyard, having been hanging washing. Sky overhears some of the conversation, and asks Serena who it was when she finishes. Serena tries (and fails miserably) to tell her it's no one. She tells her to drop it, and Stingray, who has come to visit, has overheard this last bit. Sky invites him in.
Pub
Stu and Mac talk over lunch. Mac wants to cook him dinner to make up for the way he's been treated lately. No strings attached. “This isn't gonna land me in some rural outpost chasing cow-tippers, is it?” he asks. Mac laughs and asks him “do you guys from Oakey really do that?”
Bishop house
Sky, Serena and Stingray sit on the couch in silence. Lil comes in with the vacuum and Sky gets up and offers to help, leaving Stingray and Serena alone. Stingray comments that it's not the same for them anymore, and Serena is too nervous around him. Serena starts to protest, but he tells her she doesn't have to pretend, and he should be lucky to have gone out with her for the time he did. The discussion ends with Harold and David coming in, arguing about Darcy's day-release and other things. When they leave the room, Stingray decides to leave. With remarkable timing, Lil and Sky finish vacuuming and Sky comes back to the lounge room. She notices Stingray leave and asks Serena what happened. Serena tells her it just wasn't working, no matter how hard she tried. Sky says she still has faith for the two of them, and a plan. In fact, she's waiting for a phone call that's guaranteed to get the old Stingray back, with or without Serena's help.

Kennedy house
Sky drops in to see Stingray. She has some good news for him: Ziggy Delroy of Channel 44's “Nut Off” is coming to Ramsay Street, Stingray's favourite show on the network. He corrects her: “Making Mansions” is. Sky explains to him that “Nut Off” is coming to Ramsay Street because Sky sent Ziggy a tape of Stingray mucking around and he loved it. He wants to film him for the show. Stingray unenthusiastically agrees that it will be awesome, then goes back to reading a book.
Number 30
Stu tells Mac that her dinner wasn't a bad effort, given the weird kitchen that the House of Trouser has.
MAC: What type of person doesn't have a grater? Seriously.
STU: Come on, we don't grate often.
MAC: Or a rolling pin?
STU: You really don't want to know why we had to get rid of that.
Mac comments on the good coffee, which was actually a present from Rocco before everything went pear-shaped (“we probably shouldn't be drinking it.”).
Stu asks if Mac has anything planned for tomorrow, then makes a suggestion: more coffee, then hit the clubs. “A bit of dancing never hurt anyone.” Mac tells her she's not going dancing, in fact, she better leave. She gets up, but Stu stops her and asks what's going on.
Number 30
Mac tells him that the accident “that Scully guy” had scared the hell out of her, because she's been there. She used to go clubbing all the time, and she pushed herself too far. Stu asks about her mood swings and weird behaviour at work. Mac tells him she was confused about her feelings for him. Mac again goes to leave, but the two of them kiss at the door. Stu stops and explains that she's feeling vulnerable and he's feeling confused. They agree to stop mucking around, but Stu wants a couple days to think about it.
Outside Bishop house
Serena is talking on her mobile to the mysterious person again. She agrees to meet later. Lil asks her if she'd like to go shopping with her, but Serena tells her she has homework. Suddenly a white van with a novelty horn pulls up. It's the Nut Off team. “Well you wouldn't get that in Eden Hills,” Dave comments. A midget gets out of the van. Harold asks if they can help him. “You aren't that crazy nut I'm looking for,” the guy (presumably Ziggy) says.
“I could be,” says Harold.
Sky and Stingray come out of their respective houses. Ziggy wants Stingray to come with him and the crew to do some taping. Sky convinces him to go, and she goes with him. As Sky gets in the van, Lil tells her to stay in mobile contact. As the van drives off, Harold and David are speechless and Serena has a thoughtful look on her face.
Some building
Stingray is given a skateboard, and when the crew has set up, Ziggy tells him to “nut off”. Stingray just stands there holding a hand in front of his face to shield it from a bright studio light. Sky tells him to go for a skate and see what happens. Stingray gets of the board and lamely pushes it down the corridor. Ziggy wants to know what's going on; he rocked in the video. Stingray tells him he's building up steam, and Sky goes on to say that he does it all the time to warm up. Ziggy tells the crew to “chill, you can't rush genius”.
Lassiter's complex
Dave arrives for work, goes to park, and backs into a parked car. He gets out to inspect the damage, and some passers-by notice, so he decides he better leave a note.
Park
Serena sits on a bench waiting. At last, we find out who she's meeting: her grandmother, Svetlanka. She tells Serena it means so much that she met her, to hear her out. But first, a small gift. It turns out to be an expensive bracelet.
Pub
Dave and another guy head to the same table, so they agree to share it. David introduces himself and the man introduces himself as Trent Webster. Trent comments that he just went out to his car and found a dent in it, and a note on the windscreen from “the mongrel who hit me”. He reads it out. “Sorry about the bump. Would offer to pay, but things are a bit tight. Hope not too expensive to fix.”
Changing the subject, David asks what he's doing in Erinsborough. Trent explains that he's a financial planner, and has some contract work. They find out they both have daughters around the same age. Trent remarks that with teenage girls, the clothing allowance gets bigger and the clothes get smaller. When asked what David does, he says he works in a law office. Trent interprets this as, David is a lawyer. David is about to correct him, to tell him he's a secretary, but changes his mind. Trent asks if he could help him out with this note, he'd love to get his hands on the bloke who wrote it. David tells him that it's a bit hard without a name, and asks if there were witnesses. Trent says there wasn't. “Pity,” says Dave.
Ramsay Street
The Nut Off van returns. Sky tries to defend Stingray, telling Ziggy that he was just feeling off-colour today. Ziggy interrupts and says that Stingray's a nice guy, but he's not “Nut-Off” material. He doesn't believe that it was the same guy in the video Sky sent him. Sky assures him it's the same person. Ziggy tells her that he's lost his edge. After they leave, Stingray goes into the house, and Sky follows.
Pub
Lil and Harold sneak up behind Dave and scare him. They decided to surprise him for lunch. Trent is still there and David introduces them. Trent decides to go over to the bar so they have some room, but Lil and Harold insist that he stays. Trent comments that as a corporate lawyer, David must work hard. Lil is about to set him straight, but decides to play along. However, Harold ruins it by passing on a message from Toadie, who wants him to type up his notes for a meeting, order a lovely cake for morning tea, and pick up his dry-cleaning. Trent comments that his boss is on his back all the time too.
Park
Serena and Svetlanka have a picnic lunch. They get into conversation about school, boyfriends, etc. Svetlanka notices that Serena is nervous about being seen with her. Serena admits she is a little. She says she doesn't like lying to her parents. Svetlanka tells her she's here to make things right with Lil and David. Serena tells her Lil's still pretty mad at her. Svetlanka says that's why she needs the help of Serena.
Pub
Mac comes to the pub, and sees Stu playing pool. They agree to play a game together.
Park
Svetlanka asks Serena to talk to Lil about her, telling her that she's sorry for what she did. Serena tells her she should. Svetlanka says that Lil keeps hanging up on her. Svetlanka tells her she's changed, and if Serena spends some time with her, she'll see for herself.
Bishop house
Harold, David and Lil come home, Harold and David arguing again. This time it's about Harold not knowing about his little white lie in the pub. While they argue, Serena plays with the bracelet on her wrist. She misses her chance to tell Lil when David goes out the back and she follows.
Kennedy house
Stingray is watching TV, and Sky demands his attention by walking in front of it. “Why don't you fight for anything anymore? Like the old you, the you we loved.” Picking up the bottle of pills, she continues, “I don't even recon you've got ADHD. I reckon someone made a big mistake. And you'd rather hide behind these than face the world as yourself. What's the matter, Stingray? Haven't got the guts to be an individual?” Stingray just stares at her. Sky throws the pills at him and says “if you're not gonna try, then neither am I.” And she starts to leave. Stingray stops her. Sky asks him to tell her what's wrong. Stingray tells her he doesn't know who he is, and he's scared that if he goes off the pills he'll end up doing something stupid again. He hates the pills, but he's scared he'll hurt someone the next time he does do something dumb.
