Darcy taking the polygraph test
Max telling Boyd Kayla is doing the right thing
Darcy informing Izzy he remembers everything…
Darcy's Hospital Room
Izzy tells Darcy he has got it all wrong…ahh, then why my dear do you look so guilty? Flashback to Darcy slipping and falling down the stairs – he may not have been pushed, but she did plant the jewellery on him. Izzy exclaims she was desperate and never meant to hurt him. Doesn't however is not buying this but Izzy shoots that no one is going to believe him anyway. He thinks for a moment…yes, perhaps about the attempted murder but not about the baby… Ahh! But Izzy lost the baby AND destroyed all of the records.
So, Darcy has nothing…well no. Thankfully, every medical detail is also electronically kept on a number of different hard drives in the hospital.
DARCY: It's sitting there like a little time bomb. Tick tick tick tick.
Izzy realises she's stuck and Darcy lets his demands loose. His number one priority is to get out of jail, but seeing as that'll only happen if Izzy confesses…he wants money. Though, he's not quite sure how much yet and grinning, dismisses her. He'll be in touch.
House of Trouser
Susan knows Darcy is no angel but pleads with Toadie to take Darcy's case on. He is surprised to see how supportive she is and she sighs, after all blood is thicker than water. Besides, she feels a little responsible for what Darcy did – what if he robbed Isabel on her behalf to punish Karl?
TOADIE: If he wanted to show you that he loved you, wouldn't buying dinner be simpler?
Besides all of Darcy's fault, she still believes there is good in him. She tells him about Darcy passing the polygraph test with flying colours – he genuinely does not remember committing the crime. This sparks some interest in Toadie…should a man be sent to jail for a crime he did not remember?
A pretty tune tinkers away, as Max and Steph come into the house. They head into the kitchen and it is Summer playing away. They exclaim she is really good!
MAX: Gee, I thought we had Mozart in the house!
Summer is reluctant about her playing, but Kayla too insists she's really good. It even took her mind off her sore back. Max and Steph are concerned, but Kayla insists she's okay. They don't have to fuss, it's not really right for her to stay here anyway…Steph insists it's fine and she's glad Kayla is staying. Boyd comes and gives her a CD.
BOYD: Here we are, finally finished.
KAYLA: Oh did you include Robbie Williams?
BOYD: Yes, even though I can't stand him.
KAYLA: Oh it's only that one song that I like.
He burnt her a CD to play during the delivery as she'll need it to keep her going. This spurs some talk about the imminent birth, they're all so excited!
House of Trouser
TOADIE: The thing is, I wanna do it. Then again, I don't really. I don't know, what do you do when you get yourself in a situation like this.
(Connor comes in)
CONNOR: Who you talking to?
(Toadie points to a spider near the ceiling)
(Connor immediately backs away from the wall)
Yorik is a good listener dammit, hehe. Toadie airs his woes about whether to defend Darcy or not…it is such a dream job, he can almost overlook the fact that, well it's Darcy. Connor agrees, it's his dream job he should go for it! A dream job is a dream job. Of course, he was just setting himself up to talk about the bikini shop – a venture he is willing to stand by, no matter the obstacles. There is silence and Toadie suddenly grabs the books. He's in shock – it is in thousands of dollars in debt! Connor insists they can still sell off all the stock they've got left and pleads with Toadie to let him make a go of it. He tries to make him see it's always been a dream of his, ever since he was a little boy to run a bikini shop and even gets down on his knees.
Susan laughs, while Toadie tells her about Connor's begging for the bikini shop. She can't believe he allowed him to run the shop! Toadie stipulated Connor's got one month to turn the business around or he can kiss it goodbye. Anyway, they are here to talk about Darcy. Izzy, who is conveniently cleaning tables behind them uses her spy skills to listen into their conversation.
Tim doesn't want to take the case on…but naturally, Toadie has decided to take it on regardless. He thinks it's absolutely fascinating – he can probably get Darcy a non-custodial sentence while making a splash for himself too! Yes, that's the only reason he's taking the case on. Susan just wishes Darcy would get his memory, serve his time and get on with his life. Toadie doesn't think it matters, Darcy will always get into trouble…and next time, he can charge him double.
Darcy's Hospital Room
Darcy is sleeping when Izzy comes silently comes in.
DARCY: You gonna smother me with a pillow this time?
She came here to tell him some information.
DARCY: You forget. I was in prison with psychopaths like you. Cunning, immoral…heartless.
Ahem. Izzy came to say how she overheard Toadie tell Susan he'd defend Darcy – he can even get a non-custodial sentence! Darcy wonders why on earth Izzy is here? She just thought he'd want to know about the no-jail thing…but Darcy understands. And no, she is wrong. Just because he will stay out of jail doesn't mean he won't want any compensation. Izzy cries out what harm has been done? Well…SHE PUT HIM INTO A COMA! Ruined his life! That's what. She reasoning, what if she paid for the medical bills?
DARCY: Don't even try to negotiate with me. I tell what you to do.
Izzy starts to come a little undone and tells Darcy she may just come honest with Karl! Haha! Yeah she could…but Darcy ponders if Karl could ever forgive months and months of lies or grieving over a baby that wasn't his? Or what about Izzy's family?
DARCY: I think my silence is worth gold, don't you agree?
The Hoylands eat their breakfast and Boyd wants to get Kayla, but Steph insists she rest. Summer is so excited and can't wait for the baby and she will also be able to stop lying about keeping Kayla here. She hates lying but Boyd grins that she is so good at it. Has she told them about the school talent quest? Max and Steph are surprised but Summer didn't want to do it as she felt stupid. She is playing the piece they heard yesterday, as Bree put her name down and she can't drop out now. Kayla suddenly comes in…yes, she's in labour. Her water broke and she's sorry it's all over the bed! Aww, bless her.
Bounce Bikini Shop
Toadie and Connor open up the store and Connor exclaims he can't wait until the bikinis are on real women. Toadie just can't wait until the cash register is flowing with money…he is serious, Connor needs to get his butt into gear. Connor agrees he will! He'd been up all night trying to think of ways to get business booming and before you know it, there'll be beach bunnies bounding into that door. They both glance towards the door…and in walks an old man. They both agree, he needs a once piece.
Kayla gets off the phone and tells them the hospital said she should wait, as she's only in the early stages of labour. Steph is still concerned, but Max agrees. First babies usually take a long time. Nevertheless, Steph needs to do something and goes to get Lyn. Even though Max has seen it all before…she needs someone who has been through it, and knows how Kayla is feeling. Kayla has another contraction and Boyd takes her hand, while she tries breathing through it. Summer is still worried, what if Kayla has the baby right here, right now? There will be no way they'll be able to hide the baby from the department…Boyd snaps, and tells Summer to stop thinking about getting caught and start to think about Kayla - she is the one who has the most to lose. Summer apologies, but Kayla says it's fine. She'll go the hospital and it'll be all alright…
Bounce Bikini Shop
Bounce isn't well, bouncing. Connor drums his fingers on the cash register and fiddles around with the shop. He gets a look at the tropical theme display and gets an idea…he makes a sign which says:
“Fancy a tropical holiday?
BUY A BIKINI to win!”
Connor places the sign in the shop window and low and behold, two girls just happen to be there. They come on in and start trying bikinis on. Soon Connor has the store, er, bouncing with customers. He even picks up a few phone numbers.
Max is obviously nervous, as he tries to fold up a blanket. Lyn comes out and tells Max the contractions are now 4 minutes apart. He nods, he'll go call the cab…but is informed that Steph is already doing that. Lyn starts folding up the blanket (hehe) and reprimands Max for waiting so long. Kayla should have gone to the hospital when her water broke but Max did not want Kayla to be alone!
LYN: You just like playing with fire do you?
MAX: Are you kidding! You snuck around and had an affair with my father.
LYN: (lowers her voice) It was not like that!
MAX: Oh really? And after I asked you not to…
Boyd and Summer run in and Max informs them that the cab is coming. Cab?! Boyd wants them to drive Kayla there, but Max says they can't. There may be people from the Department there…Boyd doesn't think it will hurt though, afterall the have kept Kayla here for 5 days! Max understands, he is concerned about Kayla too but the baby is too important to all of them to jeopardise the adoption.
The cab has arrived and they all help Kayla off. They promise to see her soon, well officially next time. Boyd and Kayla hug…Steph goes to hug Kayla once more and Boyd tells Max he needs to go. Just to the door! He can't let Kayla go just like this. Max doesn't think it's such a good idea…but Steph agrees. They can't leave Kayla like this. Max also agrees and gets Boyd to promise he will only go to the door.
Izzy answers the phone; it is Darcy. He demands she come see him.
Meanwhile, over at Toadie's table…he is surprised to see Connor here. Should he not be at the shop? Ahh, he could be yes…but he's already sold $2000 worth of stock! He figures at each bikini at $80 and selling 25 of those…Toadie wants to know what happened. Connor just gave them an incentive, say a tropical holiday and they'd came running! Toadie asks who is paying for that but Connor hadn't figured that out yet. It's not that illegal as with all the money he's making he can afford to buy the tropical holiday AND bring one of the ladies with him. Yes, Toadmiester, he's scored numbers from 3 very hot ladeez.
Darcy's Hospital Room
Darcy happily eats his fruit salad, when Izzy arrives.
DARCY: Not happy Isabel?
Darcy's quite happy though. As she said, Toadie will represent him in jail. Izzy sighs, why did he not just do this over the phone?
DARCY: I think blackmail is done better in person don't you? It's more intimate that way.
His price is….$50 000. Izzy protests, so he raises it to $60 000. You'd think she'd learn her lesson, but no, she keeps going so he raises it to $70 000. And don't think he won't keep going Isabel.
DARCY: Just get me the damn money Isabel. And now, get out of my sight.
Poor Kayla, she has just finished having another contraction…in the corridor. Boyd is not impressed they haven't taken her in yet, but Kayla says it should not be much longer. Boyd sadly tells Kayla he should go…but Kayla doesn't want him to. She's scared.
KAYLA: Stay with me please. Be there.
BOYD: For the birth?
KAYLA: I've got no one else. And I trust you.
BOYD: It could stuff everything up.
KAYLA: They don't have to know who you are. Please.
