Dylan meeting Carmella.
Stu telling Sgt Douglas he is entitled to a job in the police force.
Connor getting jealous about Carmella's gifts.
Dylan going off at the guy who cut him off on the road, and gets out of the car with the steering wheel lock.
Dylan approaches the other car after the guy has left. He is about to do some damage to it when he hears a dog barking in the back. He investigates and find that there are several dogs there, including Bob!
Stu is now a desk sergeant, taking phone calls. At the moment he is taking a call form someone asking about rubbish collection. He tells them that it's a council issue, and refers them to Councillor David Bishop.
Dylan opens up the back of the van and frees the dogs, then picks up Bob to take him home.
Stu gets a call from an irate Mr Finch, who claims someone has released all his dogs. Sindi pays Stu a little visit, and watches on proud as he transfers the call to someone else. She has just quietly crept in and standing behind him, but he can guess that it's her, because “you smell a lot better than any copper”. While he takes more calls, Sindi stands there, looking very pleased.
Susan asks Stingray how well he thinks Dylan is settling in. Stingray says “not bad”, and tells her about the incident in school when he just took off after Paul's class. Dylan comes home and Stingray asks what happened to him, what with Robinson's class and not giving him and Serena a lift home after school. Dylan apologises and says he forgot. Stingray continues to press him for information about not giving his presentation, because he saw that Dylan had ideas. Dylan says he just didn't think they were any good. This turns into another Timmins brothers argument, and Dylan storms out. Stingray turns to Susan. “See what I mean?”
Bob curls up in his basket. Carmella is going through her fan mail. Sindi comes in and apologises for being late. Carmella asks about Stu. Sindi says he's amazing, and he can work a computer keyboard much quicker than she can. She's amazed at his strength of character. Carmella reads out one of her anonymous letters.
I think that you are the most amazing woman ever. You're smart and fashionable, not to mention gorgeous.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm never more happy than when I'm near you.”
Sindi says it's a bit lame. Carmella suspects that Connor wrote it. “He writes bad poetry,” Sindi says. Carmella says that he's trying to make a point, because she had a go at him before about not getting jealous. “Sometimes I wonder if there's not something in all those old Irish jokes,” Carmella says. The two of them exchange Irish jokes, and Connor comes in. He contributes his own, then says he's heard them all before. Carmella reads more of the letter:
“Roses are red
Daffodils are yellow
Wherever you go
I'm sure to follow”
Carmella accuses him of writing it, which Connor denies. He says it sounds nothing like him. The girls start to think it's a little bit bizarre, and Carmella says that the writer goes on about the clothes she wears. Connor suggests calling the cops.
While Max works, Harold stands there talking about going into business with Lou. Max tells him one thing he's learned is to be very weary when Lou approaches you with an offer. Harold mentions more upcoming tango lessons, and says to Lou, “I suppose we'll be seeing your two left feet on the dance floor?” He starts dancing and accidentally spills a drink all over the counter. Max says that he has been making progress in the dancing. “You suddenly developed a sense of rhythm or something?” Harold teases. Max starts quietly counting backwards from ten. “What are you counting for?” Harold asks. Max ignores him and keeps counting.
Connor tells Stu about the letter, and says that the cops were next to useless. Stu says that until a crime is committed they can't do anything. Stu says that the typical fan is harmless. They like writing letters because they are too shy to approach the person. Stu says it wouldn't hurt to stay alert, and maybe Carmella shouldn't go out on her own in public for the time being. Connor asks if any of these letter-writers ever get out of hand. Stu says they'll be okay if they follow his advice.
Susan, Sindi, Stu, Stingray and Dylan are eating dinner. Susan is telling Dylan that starting a new school can be hard, especially when starting VCE. Dylan says that it's been okay. Susan tells him that it's still early in the year, so if he was thinking of changing subjects, now would be a good time. Dylan says he's fine, and Susan mentions the economics class. Dylan again tells her there's no problems, and asks if they can talk about something else. Stu mentions his little incident at work with horrible Mr Finch, the dog catcher. While the adults laugh and joke about it, Stingray looks across at Dylan, who has trouble meeting his gaze. After a while, Susan notices that Stingray is quiet, when she thought he would love a stunt like that. Stingray says it's a good one, he just thinks it's been done before.
Later on, Dylan is outside sitting on the front of his car with music playing from the car's stereo. Stingray follows him out. He tells Dylan there's a lot of puppies out there wagging their tails because of him. He says he knows that he did it. He then reminds Dylan that he got caught for doing the exact same thing in Colac, twice, and that if he gets caught again he'll be straight back in juvie. Dylan defends his actions, by saying he saved a lot of people from being fined by the council, and that they put dogs down if no one claims them. He then goes on to say that if people have money, they can buy their way out of anything, and mentions as an example Paul Robinson. Stingray points out that he couldn't buy his way out of doing time. He then asks Dylan if this is about the idea he had in class, and eventually gets him to tell him about it: a farm for homeless kids where they could make money by selling fruit and vegies. Stingray tells him it's a good idea, the only problem would be getting the cash to start it. He suggests getting some big company to sponsor it. Dylan tells him to forget it. Stingray tells him he knows what it's like to be an outsider, always getting picked on. He knows that they'll always be the poor cousins, not having what everyone else has, but he's proud of it. Dylan says that's crud. Stingray tells him that they have to work harder, but that makes them stronger, and in a way, better. “I should probably listen to you more often,” Dylan says. “You're the smart one.” Stingray is touched; that's the first time he's ever said that. He asks Dylan if he wants to hang out at Toadie's, which he declines, until Stingray tells him that Toadie won't be there, Carmella will be.
Max is trying to work, which is made a little more difficult by a strange muffled blowing noise. It's Harold cleaning out the mouthpiece of his tuba. Harold apologises, then Max says it's his fault, and tells him he has a problem with anger. Harold tells him he never thought that, and Max tells him that he sometimes really loses it. Harold commends him for realising he has a problem, and recommends some support groups. Max says he isn't keen on the group thing. Harold suggests a one-on-one meeting, and says he could see Lyn about it.
Dylan is talking to Carmella about fashion. He read that moccasins are coming back in, just like ugg boots. Carmella says that's correct, but uggies are old news. Connor tries to get them to leave, saying that he isn't sure when Toadie will be back, but Stingray says they're happy to wait. Dylan comments on how good Carmella's perfume is, then Connor asks them to leave.
Max, Boyd, Sky and Summer have a soccer game in the street. They really get into it, then Boyd pushes Max, who trips on the curb and falls on the grass. While Boyd kicks a goal, Summer helps her father up. “You know, Dad, they say it's a very humbling experience when a father finds out his kids are stronger than him.” Max says the sooner he starts anger management, the better. Boyd checks the time, then says he has to get to work. Sky says she's starting to like the idea of Boyd going to the gym. Max says he should start himself so he can keep up. “Look out, Dad!” Summer shouts from off-screen. The ball bounces off Max's head and hits Sky who starts laughing.
Steiger comes in and says Stu's doing well. Stu asks about the outstanding warrants they have. Steiger says they are still out and about. Stu says he has an idea to get them, but it is a bit out there.
Connor is again talking about the “stalker”, and thinks it might be Dylan. He's just come into town, and he has a dodgy background, a dodgy brother and a dodgy mother. And he was hanging around last night like a bad smell. He says the letter sounds like something Dylan could write. And he mentioned Carmella's perfume. He says that Dylan is his prime suspect, and if he makes one mistake he's going back inside where he belongs.
Harold is talking on his mobile to someone, saying he'll think about it. He finishes and tells Max that Svetlanka has invited him away for the weekend. The only problem is David and Lil are against the idea of him and Svetlanka being together, and Serena is completely opposed too. Max asks what the problem is and Harold tells him there's a few skeletons in the closet. Max tells him he should feel free to spend his time how he wants, but Harold doesn't want to create more family tension.
Stu is on the phone to someone, telling them that they have won first prize, a brand new jet-ski, and to claim the prize he needs to meet them at the Erinsborough Community Hall by 5 o'clock this afternoon. He gets off the phone, and Steiger is amazed the guy actually bought it. A group of officers, including Steiger and Stu, get ready to head down to the hall. Steiger tells Stu he'll be amazed at the stupidity of the typical crook. Sindi comes in and Stu and Steiger invite her down to watch.
Sindi and Stu sit at a table to watch. Sindi tells Stu what's happening. “And now he's being handcuffed. He doesn't look too happy about it.” Steiger thanks Harold and Max for their cooperation. Sindi tells Stu it was a great idea. “I told you watching The Simpsons would pay off,” he says. Sindi tells him he deserves a promotion or another medal. “Hasn't this guy got enough medals?” Steiger says. He then says that she's right, and Stu deserves to be congratulated. He offers the two of them a lift home on his way back to the station, but Stu says they'd prefer to walk.
Connor is on his way to see Dylan, despite Carmella's attempts to stop him. Susan tells Carmella she looked great on the magazine cover. Meanwhile Connor has found Dylan working on his car, and tells him to stop harassing Carmella. Dylan says he doesn't like Connor's attitude. Connor tells him to stop harassing Carmella, and no more letters, and he'll forget it ever happened.
Sindi and Stu are on their way home. Stu says he's surprised he still likes to be outside even though he can't see. Sindi says seeing isn't everything. He can hear the birds, smell the flowers. Suddenly two masked guys come running up to them. They punch up Stu a bit then run off.
