Caleb giving Summer a friendship ring and promising he'll come back.
Serena meeting her grandmother.
Stingray telling Sky he won't go off the pills, because he's scared he'll do something really stupid.
Sky tells Stingray he has to be himself, or he'll go mental. Stingray argues that being himself is what causes him to do stupid things. Sky points out that everyone makes mistakes, but Stingray is quick to say that only he loses babies. Sky tells him he's not sick; he doesn't need pills. Stingray says that 9 out of 10 quacks say he is.
“What would they know?” Sky asks.
“How to make me normal,” he answers.
“Do they know how to make you happy?”
“Normal's enough, OK?”
Steph tells Jack there's a bed at number 32 with his name on it. Jack says he'd rather just go home. Steph tells him he's not going straight home from hospital to an empty house, he's staying with the Hoylands, at least for a night. Jack reluctantly agrees and thanks her.
Sky continues to convince Stingray to go off the medication. She points out that he was happy before going on the pills. “Maybe. In between stuff-ups,” he says. Sky firmly states that he doesn't need the pills. Stingray says that Susan will never take him seriously. “Do you want to go on like you're living half a life?” Sky asks. She suggests he goes off the pills without telling Susan, and see how he goes.
Steph and Jack reminisce about their childhood. Apparently Joe (in this scene, Jack imitates his voice) would tell Jack that a couple years in the army will teach Jack some respect. Then Lyn (voiced by Steph) would tell him he could never send her boy off to the army. They'll cut his hair. More seriously again, Steph suggests that Jack calls Toadie to see what he should expect in court.
Jack says he can't deal with it right now. He doesn't want to call Toadie; he'll reckon he deserved it. Steph tells him he won't do that, he's their friend. The discussion ends when Summer comes in with a present for Jack: a nice block of Cadbury's Fruit and Nut chocolate. Summer asks about Jack coming back to coach the girls' soccer team. Jack tells her he won't be fit to coach for a while. Summer tells him he'll be fine in a couple of weeks. Then she goes on about Caleb.
Summer and Steph return home. Steph is telling her that they'll just have to let Jack make up his own mind about coaching soccer. Max comes in and shoves a phone bill into Summer's hands. A $600 phone bill. “So?” says Summer. “I'm not the only one who uses the phone.
“Sky does not live in Queensland, Queensland, Queensland,” says Max, pointing out each Queensland phone call on the bill.
“I can't help where Caleb lives,” says Summer.
“I can't help spitting my dummy when I see this bill,” Max replies.
Summer suggests getting Caleb to pay it. Max refuses, and tells her that in this house, they watch what they spend and live within their means.
There's a knock at the door, and coincidentally, it's Caleb.
A short while later, the four of them are looking at honeymoon photos, from when Max and Boyd posed with the guys at the pool. Caleb calls Steph “Mrs Hoyland”, and Steph asks him to call her Steph. Caleb then asks if he can call Max, Max, but Max says “Mr Hoyland” will be fine. Max asks Caleb if his dad's waiting outside, and Caleb explains that he's working, and he's booked a go-kart place for the day, all to himself. He asks Max if it's alright if Summer can go with him. He says Max can come too, and Max says he will. Summer goes off to her room to get ready, and Caleb starts to follow. Max asks if he'd like a drink and steers him towards the kitchen, away from Summer's room.
Summer excitedly enters the building with Caleb. Max comments it's a bit sad and flat with no other kids. Summer assures him they'll make plenty of noise. Mr Wilson arrives and introduces himself to Max. He tells Caleb and Summer to go off and have fun, which they do. Mr Wilson tells Max he's thinking about starting a franchise of the place back in Queensland. Summer overhears them talking. Mr Wilson tells Max he was hoping they could use this as a chance to have a chat. Max says he was too.
Summer and Caleb race around the track. Summer stays in front for most of it. They stop and watch the fathers talk. Summer bets Max is laying down the law. Caleb says she doesn't know, and a minute later, Max and Caleb's dad pick up helmets to join in. The lovebirds race off again.
Sky jumps around on the lounges, the kitchen bench, and other furniture. Stingray isn't interested, and looks through a magazine. Harold pops around for a visit. He has a surprise for Stingray: the beans that he planted with Harold many months ago. Sky congratulates him.
Jack has come home with Steph and is looking through some DVDs that she rented for him: 28 Days, When A Man Loves A Woman. He comments that he didn't know the video store had a rehab section. Max and Summer return and Jack thanks Max for letting him stay. Steph asks Max how he went with Caleb's dad. Max said he went alright, and when asked if he had his words with him, Max says “sort of”. He admits that the guy seemed alright. Steph laughs and tells him he got snowed. Max is hiding something behind his back, which turns out to be a box of Cuban cigars. Steph laughs at what little it took to win him over. Summer comes in and wants to watch the movies Steph rented, but Steph tells her they're all MA rated. Steph, Max and Summer leave to give Jack some space.
Svetlanka asks Serena if she mentioned her to her parents. Serena explains that she didn't have a chance, they were too busy arguing about money problems. Serena promises she will tell her parents about Svetlanka, but it just wasn't a good time before. Svetlanka tells her they'll just have to bide their time before reconciling with Lil and David. She asks Serena to keep their visits a secret just a bit longer.
Caleb drops around again. Summer introduces him to Jack. They talk about Jack's brief soccer career for a bit, then Jack asks if Steph and Max are back yet. Summer says no, and Jack tells her he'll just duck home to get a jumper. Summer tells him she'll get him another blanket if he's cold, and Jack says he'll just get a jumper. Summer tells him she could get one of Max's. Jack notices something strange and asks if there's a reason he can't go home. Summer tells him that Steph said she has to call her if Jack left the house at all. Jack sits back down in the lounge room and comments that he thought he was babysitting Summer, not the other way around.
Stingray tells Sky he's been thinking about it all afternoon, and he's decided he should just tell Suse that he's decided to go off the medication. Sky tells him that Susan will support him, and that she's glad to have the old Stingray back in action. Serena comes in, to speak to Sky. Stingray goes out the back. She makes Sky promise not to tell anyone what she's about to say, then tells her of her visits with Svetlanka. Sky says she can't believe she's making Serena do her dirty work.
Serena tells her that she feels sorry for her, because she's so lonely. Sky warns her to be careful; from what she's seen of her she's a manipulative old snake. She also points out that it shouldn't be her job to resolve Svetlanka and Lil's relationship.
Max and Steph have a short argument outside the house about Jack, and Max says that if he steps out of line he's out. He doesn't want Jack doing drugs around the kids. They go inside, and Max tells Caleb his dad just pulled up outside. Caleb promises they'll see each other again soon, and that he'll call Summer because she's not allowed to. Max goes out with Caleb and Summer so he can say goodbye to Caleb's dad. Steph asks if Jack wants anything. Jack brings up the issue of being babysat by Summer. He tells her that he can't blame Steph; he hasn't given her much reason to trust him. Steph tells him that everyone's allowed one stupid mistake before they're 25, hers was Marc Lambert. Jack tells her that if keeping tabs on him means he'll earn back Steph's trust, then so be it.
During dinner, David asks Serena to pass the salt. Using the opportunity, Serena mentions that Svetlanka would ban him from using the salt. She'd say it was fine the way it is. David says she's not here, so he can eat how he likes. Serena tells Lil that she misses her grandmother, and maybe she could see her sometimes. Lil asks them not to discuss it, and David says that she's got a lot of making up to do before she's welcome at the house again. Serena asks “what if she's sorry?” Lil tells her that she really hurt her, and she doesn't want to go through it again.
Jack watches TV, wrapped in a blanket and bouncing his foot up and down impatiently. He gives up on the TV and turns it off. He pulls out a scrap of paper and picks up his phone to dial a number. When the person picks up, he asks if it's cool if he can come and see him. He ends the call, then checks his wallet. He's down to $5.
Serena has been dragged out of bed to let Stingray in, who was throwing rocks at her window to wake her up. He tells Serena “I'm going to be me again. Put the sting back in the ray. I'm not gonna take the medication anymore. I want my life back.” Serena is happy for him, and Stingray tells her he wants to give their relationship a go again. Serena tells him she just has a lot of things on her mind right now. Stingray says he has no idea what's going on now, when only a few weeks ago, everything in her life involved him. Serena tells him she still thinks of him as a really good friend.
Jack's about to sneak out. He checks to see if anyone's around, then picks up Steph's wallet and starts taking out money. He sees his reflection in a framed picture on the wall. He takes a good look at himself, then breaks down crying. Steph hears him and comes out to comfort him.
