- Susan announces she is staying
- Sky watches Dylan playing with Oscar
- Darcy blackmailing Izzy
Izzy hands over a wad of money to Darcy, but he's not pleased - it is only $5000, not the $70 000 he expected. Izzy says she can't get that much money - she would have to mortgage her share of the Bar. Darcy doesn't see the problem, asking who he should call first. Izzy panics, and says she needs more time. Darcy gives her a deadline - 4pm that afternoon. Don't be late...now GET OUT! Mwahahaha!
Izzy rushes out of the room, and almost crashes into Karl. Karl can't understand why she keeps putting herself through seeing Darcy, he's the one that did something wrong - he's the one that should suffer! Izzy agrees, but she has to rush off, leaving Karl to sigh and look mopey.
Dylan is still playing with OverallCladOzzie, when Sky comes into the yard. Dylan asks how much time he has till the police come and take him away, but Sky says he doesn't need to run...unless he's afraid of chicks! She produces a doll - Enid.
SKY: Meet Enid, the most powerful...she's decided to save you...
DYLAN: What about the cops?
SKY: Well, they've got more important things to do. But Dylan, I'm not letting you off the hook, ok? Not yet. I don't even know if I'm going to tell them. But...I do want what's best for you, and that's because...I care about you.
DYLAN: Yeah! Same!
SKY: Dylan, I need you to care about the people I love. That's so important to me. And you need to understand that...So. Can I join in?
DYLAN: Well, whaddaya reckon Ozzie? Can Sky play? Well, just remember that G.I.Joe and Spiderman haven't seen a woman in a while, so Enid mightn't be all that safe...
SKY: I'm pretty sure Enid will handle whatever you dish her...besides...I think she likes you.
Sky makes Enid kiss Spiderman and Dylan grins. Ahh new love...
That high-pitched tin-whistle music sta....oh hell. Wrestling. Ah it's ok...sort of... Toadie and Connor are filming their last show before Myles comes back. They wrap it up, but not before getting in a shameless plug for Bounce. As they turn the camera off, Connor says he had better get back to the shop, but Toadie thinks he's been working to hard and needs a break (code for: I wanna cop a perve, so you can stay home). Connor says he is fine, but Toadie insists - he wants to sell bikinis to sultry sun-goddesses and their womanly forms! Connor tells him they are all old and wrinkly, and besides, Tim called and he needs Toadie for a conference call. Toadie reluctantly says he is going, but Connor points out he is still in his Lawman get up. Toadie puts a suit jacket over his snazzy uni-tard and leaves. Noice.
Karl and Susan bump into each other in the hall - Susan has come to see Darcy. Susan asks how he is, and Karl says he is getting stronger by the hour. He tells Susan he was glad to hear she had decided to stay, and asks if there is any particular reason why. She says no - just the forces working against her - y'know how it is. Darcy is listening to Susan and Karl's conversation, with a happy little smile on his dial. Karl tells Susan she would have been missed if she went, and she points out that that is no reason to stay, but Karl still says the place wouldn't have been the same without her. They part and Susan goes into see Darcy, who is still happy.
DARCY: You and Karl - still in love, huh?
SUSAN: Don't be ridiculous!
DARCY: You two are going to get back together again.
Susan says Izzy and Karl are very much a couple, and good luck to 'em! But Darcy is adamant - Isabelle Hoyland is just a temporary thing...trust him!
Dylan has put Oscar to bed, and settles down with Sky on the lounge. He is all set for a good ol' fashion game of Tonsil Hockey, but Sky doesn't want to be jumped on. They agree that heir relationship is now 'a happening thing' even though Dylan still can't believe that she would want to be with the guy who trashed her house. Sky says she knows that underneath his tough guy act, there is someone she wants to get to know better...BUT...he has to get his act together - no more blow ups, she's sick of the agro, and he has to make it up to Harold, Lil, Dave... and she means it. She knows he doesn't deliberately lose it, but he can try and control it. He asks her to be patient with him - he can't become a superhero overnight, but he will really, really try. Sky finally lets him kiss her.
Karl tells Darcy he is getting somewhere, neurologically, and he could regain full memory. Darcy asks if Karl ever regrets leaving Susan. Karl replies that it's none of his business - but Darcy thinks it is, seeing as Susan is family. Karl says Susan is far too trusting, especially where family is concerned. But he 'doesn't share her delusions' - he doesn't trust Darcy and never will. Darcy says that Karl's problem is he trusts the wrong people - then asks after Izzy. Karl leaves in a huff. But Darcy didn't even tell him to get out!
Toadie has busted Connor - there was no meeting, and as for all the customers being old - well, if they are old, I'll eat my sombrero. Connor tries to tell Toadie that the reason he didn't want him at the shop was because he has a fetish for bikini's...but Toadie thinks it what is *in* the bikini's he is more interested in. Toadie and Connor set a challenge - to see who can serve/assist the most chicky babes.
Sky wants to know what's on the agenda for the day. Dylan says he is going to go and see Paul, but beyond that he's all hers. Sky can't understand why Dylan still needs to see Paul - he saved his life - he paid his dues. Dylan says he still feels responsible. Sky asks what about the promise he just made, but Dylan tells her not to pull that 'she's right and he has to fall into line' routine - he's not Boyd; Sky says she isn't trying to make him into Boyd - she wants him to be the best version of himself. Dylan says he will stick to his promise, but ditching Paul wasn't a part of it. Sky apologises, and admires his ability to commit - and she says he should go and see Paul. Dylan is proud that he survived their 'first domestic' without losing it. Sky says she knew they were good for each other.
Izzy is abusing someone on the phone when Karl comes in and asks who it was. Izzy says it was just a supplier, no big deal. Karl points out that she hasn't been herself today, and asks what is going on with her and Darcy.
IZZY: Ok, you got me - it's a bizarre spin off of the Stockholm Syndrome - we've fallen in luuuurve.
Karl says he doesn't want Iz to visit Darcy anymore. He knows she wants closure, but Darcy's comments about misplaced trust have freaked him out and now he just can't trust anyone! Look at the shifty eyes! Izzy says they should lock him up and throw away the key. Karl asks if he is threatening her, and Izzy says he is just being paranoid - Darcy doesn't like her, because he blames her for Karl's break up with Susan. Karl repeats that he doesn't want her visiting him anymore - it's misguided and she's had her closure!
Dylan comes in to see Paul, and is greeted with a nice polite GET OUT! Dylan isn't fazed, and asks how Paul is feeling. Paul just wants him to get out. Dylan points out he hasn't eaten lunch - he needs to keep his strength up! Paul knocks the sandwich out of Dylan's hand and tells him to...altogether now...GET OUT of his face! Dylan says well if he doesn't like salad, he'll get him something else.
PAUL: As soon as I'm up and out of this place, I'm going to make you regret that you ever signed that form...
DYLAN: That's the spirit! Up and out of this place! It's the first time I've heard you say those words!
Paul pulls a face, but Dylan tells him that he knows if he was the one dying, Paul would have done the same. Before Paul has a chance to yell GET OUT! Dylan tells him he will be back soon, and leaves.
Connor is having great success in advising the girls on their bikini choices, while Toadie is having some...err...perspiration issues. More than issues. He's sweating like a pig. A girl calls out for help from the change rooms, and Toadie rushes off to her, leaving Connor to deal with some more customers. The girl asks Toadie to do up the clasp on the bikini, but his hands are so sweaty he is having trouble. Connor, on the other hand, blows away his customers with his knowledge of bikinis and what will suit them. Back at the change rooms, Toadie can't get the clasp done up, and the girl opts to try something else. Connor tells him just to go home, but Toadie says he is just a bit hot - he'll be right in a minute!
Izzy slams a cheque for $65 000 in front of Darcy, and says she hopes he chokes on it. Darcy says that it isn't good enough - despite her protests that she had to move heaven and earth to get the money, Darcy points out she has missed the deadline by four...no - five minutes. He informs her the deal is off, although he still gets to keep the money. But there is an extra penalty - $200 a week for the rest of his life, and he gets to spend time with her whenever, wherever he likes...quality time, if you catch the drift
Everyone is freezing to death thanks to the solution Toadie has come up with for his sweating problem - get every fan he can get his hands on, and turn them on full force! Connor points out they are losing customers, because it is so cold!
CONNOR: You may have stopped yourself sweating like a Christmas Ham, but you've also stopped sales, and turned this place into an igloo!
Their last two customers walk out, complaining they can't bear to try their bikinis on because they have lost feeling in their feet. Connor tells Toadie he had a sweating problem on his first day to. He then goes on to explain about hormones and what happens when little boys see little girls...but we won't go there...Connor tells Toadie he just has to find something to focus on - something to visualize - to take his attention away from the girls and their bodies. Toadie still wants more help, but Connor says it is an individual thing - he can't tell Toadie what his visual is...that would be because Connors image is Toadie in a hot black and red bikini, complete with a snazzy cowboy hat and a necklace. Toadie. In. A. Bikini. Carly predicted this would happen. Oh. Dear. Lord.
Sky is absentmindedly picking petals off a daisy, when Susan asks 'does he love you?' (you know - he loves me, he loves me not??) Sky replies that she was a million miles away, as Dylan drives up. Sky hurries over to him Dylan asks how this works, and Sky says he could ask her out tonight or something...Dylan suggests the drive-in, and Sky says she'll go get the equipment.
DYLAN: Oooh kinky!
SKY: Yeah - I meant the cushions!
Sky tells him that this is a thankyou kiss, and kisses him as Susan watches from across the street, smiling the cheesy smile of someone watching new love blossom. Dylan spots Suse and points out that they are in public. Sky says she doesn't care, before kissing him again and hurrying off. Dylan happy dances over to Suse, who tells him it's a long time since she has seen someone so happy.
DYLAN: What, me you mean?
SUSAN: Both of you.
Dylan happy dances some more.
Izzy bursts in to Paul's room, and ever-so-non-gracefully shakes, pokes, and prods him awake. She plonks herself down on the bed, and starts telling Paul - at a hundred miles an hour - about Darcy and his blackmail.
PAUL: What the hell are you talking about?
IZZY: Darcy! Darcy Tyler - I can't keep giving him what he wants - I can't!
PAUL: Aaaaaah, blackmail, 'eh? I would've thought that was familiar territory for you, Izzy...
IZZY: Oh dear...poor, poor Izzy!
Izzy tells him it's never going to end while he's still around. Paul asks if she wants him taken care of.
PAUL: Yes you do, otherwise you wouldn't be here in the first place! You know I've got the contacts and you want to use them!
IZZY: Ok, I want Darcy Tyler removed!
