Paul spilling the beans to Izzy as he knows the little baby secret…
Stu telling Sindi he can get his eyes fixed! … for $50,000
Dylan telling his new dad, Paul he won't do anything against his family – ever
What does Dylan want? … He wants it all! To be someone and he needs money to do that. Paul gives him some envelopes to deliver, and to those people only! No mistakes can be made. Paul also hands him some serious moolah – he needs some new threads to look the part.
Izzy hands Karl some travel magazines for him and is about to go … but he notices she's distracted. She admits that the bar thing is making her crazy – items haven't arrived, chairs that have aren't theirs … the builder didn't show up this morning … and she's being treated quite the fool by Paul, the egomaniac. Karl thinks Izzy should play him for all he's worth “get what you can out of him” (pity Karl doesn't know exactly what Izzy has been up to with him) … see what makes him tick. He'll scare the living daylights out of the builder (he was a former patient) for her too.
Sindi's SO proud of Stu, as she finishes ironing his shirt. “Every penny helps” … obviously not her sister there but of course they're implying every bit of cash helps. She suggests hitting the parents for cash … but Stu doesn't feel comfortable with that idea. Sindi slyly asks about … but before she can finish, Stu puts his foot down that she WON'T be going back to stripping.
Mr Toadfish comes in to grab his keys and Sindi immediately pounces on him, teasing he looks fairly casual for a client-meeting. Stu however can sense Toadie's lying ‘cause his voice is vibrating at a higher frequency … however “Nancy Drew and Daredevil” couldn't be more wrong! Unfortunately, Eva comes on in (she was sick of waiting in the car for so long) but Toadie quickly gets them both out of there. “Tell me, what'd she look like?” Stu quips as soon as they leave.
Stingray has made himself a hefty looking sandwich (piccalilli, ham, mustard, cheese, peanut butter and syrup…on wholemeal) and offers some to Sindi. “It's tempting…but no.” He notices that “her nappy could do with a changing” and she just says it's a whole $50 000 kinda thing. Besides, he should really start on the dishes before he gets back to school or else Susan won't be happy. Stinger says they're her dishes too and anyway, he's got a cast which can't get wet. She'll put a plastic bag over it – but then you can't do that to the environment – Sindi says she'll recycle it.
Changing his tactics, Stinger insists they flip for it and they do…and Sindi loses. He laughs and she's shocked he shafted her! She wants in too!
Dylan waltzes in, with some nice new threads on (think expensive black suit) which gets some attention. Sindi especially, who fawns over the stitching and lining. Dylan suavely replies he's working for the best now, so needs to look it. Stinger is very impressed and they leave for school … Dylan not bothering to change his clothes. They leave and Sindi just stares at the coin, pondering…
Outside Number 28
Stingray teases him about his clothes, but Dylan replies he's got some business to take care or. Wolf whistle and Janelle walks on over – she's impressed with how Dylan looks and compliments him so. Then realises the last time he was this scrubbed up was in court…her demeanour changes and she wants to know what he's done now. He's done nothing, but she won't have a bar of it. Dylan simply looks at her and gets into the car. “You're spiggin, poison” are Stingray's last words to her.
Erinsborough Police Station
Stu's a working the telephone when he receives this very strange burgularly call… by a Miss Sindi Watts. The “mystery” caller described the “brute” as 6 foot tall, straw coloured hair, muscly shoulders and the tightest glutes she'd ever felt… Stu's all “what you talking about lady?” until Dahl squawks, blowing her cover. Stu tells the mysterious woman it's an offence to prank call the police station, but Sindi replies she won't mind being arrested by him. He's gotta answer some other calls – and will put her on hold… “You can hold me as long as you like,” giggles Sindi.
Paul senses Izzy's presence (much like our Stu) and enquires as to why she's there. Izzy slyly walks up to him, she's sorry about not taking up his offer last night. Paul thought things were cooled down and what's wrong…Karl's still not taking her back? Forget about Karl, he's got nothing to do with this.
PAUL: What's this? Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer?
IZZY: Well that would make you enemy number one.
PAUL: God I like your mind, it's more twisted than a pretzel.
She wants him to shut up and take her somewhere really interesting…before he can say anything else, puts a finger to his lips. Fade out to commercials with suggestive music.
Erinsborough Community Hall
Eva demonstrates Toadie some new crowd pleasing wrestling moves…with the ketchup bottle and salt shaker. He tries to ask if she wants to hang out which of course she does, idiot. Janelle abruptly interrupts their moment – she wants to know if Dylan is in trouble? What's he been up too? Toadie has no idea and hints that they want to be left alone. Janelle does get the picture and makes some comments and faces … but still doesn't leave. She says to him it's nice he's picking up someone with curves – she should see the stick insects he usually gets! He immediately apologies to Eva, but she's not offended at all. She likes not being a stick insect.
Cut to Janelle and she's trying to pay, but her credit card won't work. Stingray sees the commotion, and hands over some money to pay for Janelle's lunch. He wants to have a word ... he and Dylan are trying to make something of their lives, but having her isn't helping. Stingray tells her he's given her second chances when no one else would – but she's just selfish and mean. She should just go back to Colac.
Erinsborough Police Station
Stu's having a bit of trouble on the phoneline…he accidentally keeps pressing the wrong buttons and it just gets worse and worse until someone has to take over. Meanwhile, Sindi is about to surprise him with a picnic lunch, but sees how upset Stu has gotten. Poor Stuey.
Toadie and Eva laze around, gazing up at the sky making pictures out of the clouds. Aww. She and Toadie fight for the last bit of chocolate – she wins by pinning his arm around his back.
EVA: I'm a school teacher mate, I do the lessons around here. And I'm taking you to school.
Poor Toadie, then again, never get in between a girl and her chocolate!
Lassiters' Hotel Room
Izzy finishes getting changed and while Paul is in the shower – turns into spy!Izzy mode (think the writers have been watching Alias) by making copies of the files with a camera. Meanwhile, Paul calls out he needs some help scrubbing his back, but Izzy's gotta go back to work. She's about to leave – when Paul runs out wet and naked … except for being … Clad. In. A. Towel. …
Sindi's worried Stu isn't fine and he isn't really. He's very upset what could have happened if they didn't manage to trace the call. He sighs, he just cannot do this anymore. He can't live like “this” anymore. Sindi comforts him, they'll get through this, together and everything will be okay.
STU: (sadly, while caressing her face) I wish I could see your face. You're all I've got.
They talk about their favourite wrestlers of all time – hers is The Rock. Toadie laughs and can't believe it “He's the Manchester United of wrestling!” Toadie himself prefers the old school wrestlers and name a few. But ultimately, he adores Andrea the Giant. She laughs at him for his taste and they begin to play wrestle. Wham! Pow! CABOOM! Food goes everywhere and they roll around, tussling with each other. He pins her down, but she quickly gets one on him, flipping over. “Now I'm back on top where I like it.” She then lays a kiss on him, much to Toadie's surprise. Awww.
Izzy thanks Karl for scaring the builder into working! He's just glad she's in better spirits … this leads Izzy to say it shows how much she needs him, and how she can be good for him too … he doesn't want her to take this the wrong way…but he really doesn't think it will work now. He needs to be on his own, taking things easy for awhile. Izzy understands…though she doesn't look it.
Outside Number 28
Walking home from school, Stinger spots these two wicked BMXs parked in the driveway (complete with balloons wrapped around them). Janelle jumps out – surprising him. She remembers how the boys wanted them at Christmas a long time ago…but their dad ended up spending the money himself. She insists they're not stolen, she just put it on her plastic fantastic. Nothing is too good, it's just money. They see Dylan and wave him over, but he just walks past. Stingray tries to get him to say thanks, but he blows up – his suit cost more than those bikes, today he had more money than Janelle ever has.
DYLAN: I don't want or need anything form ya – I hate you.
Janelle looks crestfallen…but she knows she's had it coming.
Stu sleeps soundly on the couch, while Sindi sadly watches him. Hesitant, she finally calls someone up … is that offer of work still available? Yes, she's sure she can do it tonight … she just needs the address. Writing it down, she grabs the bit of paper and just looks at sleeping Stu.
