Jenny tells Susan she's broken up with Karl.
Stingray winning the film competition.
Susan declaring her love for Karl.
Karl and Susan kiss once, twice. Karl notices that her feet are bleeding and she confesses that she forgot to put shoes on; she was in bed, asleep, and she woke up and just *had* to see him and trod on something on the way – she didn't even notice.
Karl – bless him – suggests he get his medical kit and take a look at them, but Susan reminds him of what's really important here:
SUSAN: Karl! Karl, I'm here. I'm here. And I'm saying out loud what I haven't dared think. I love you. I still love you.
They kiss again.
Rachel turns up and Scott's thrilled – everyone else is asleep! She hands him flowers – his award for doing so well on his film. Aw!
RACHEL: I was dying to rush to the stage and smother you with kisses for winning that prize.
Rachel suggests they dance together, but Scott would rather kiss – until Oscar's cries and Lyn's voice disturb them, and a tired Lyn wanders out the bedroom with her son. Rachel leaps behind the sofa. Lyn tells Oscar they'll get some milk, and she thinks that Ned has been been giving him too many sweets and fizzy drinks. She asks why Scott's up and he says he's all wired from his film win…so he's watching Parliament Question Time.
Lyn goes to get Oscar some milk, and Oscar goes behind the sofa and stares at Rachel.
Harold returns home, and finds Mishka and Lou just heading out at two in the morning. They have a box with them, ad Harold realises that it's the “illegal liquor I expressly asked you not to bring into this house.” Lou tries to explain that they were taking it out of the house, but Harold's having none of it – the minute he turns his back Lou's up to his old tricks.
Harold refuses to have his house turned into a sly grog shop, and tells Lou and Mishka they're no longer welcome in his house.
Translated: “May diarrhoea strike you down.”
Lou looks like he's in agreement with Mishka and Harold looks put out.
Susan's lying across Karl on his bed, and he asks how her foot is.
SUSAN: I have feet?
She's so happy she doesn't care about her feet.
Karl tells her that he has a medical obligation for a doctor to assist when he's capable of it.
SUSAN: Well, I wouldn't want to see you locked up. Mind you, a year ago – sure, throw away the key.
KARL: I owe these feet a lot. They brought you back to me.
SUSAN: Well, my head said no, my heart said I'm terrified, but my feet said yes, yes, yes, YES! OW!
KARL: Sorry. I have to disinfect this.
SUSAN: It was alright before, but now you've made it hurt.
KARL: Free medical attention and you're whinging?!
They kiss and smile, and she can't stop stroking his face. Susan asks Karl what they do now, when they leave the room; Karl wants to barricade the door and never leave. Susan really wants to know – what will they tell people? Karl doesn't know – what are they supposed to do – start a clandestine affair?
Then Susan bites her lip a little and they agree to take this one step at a time, see how it goes with the two of them before they go public.
KARL: Like I'm gonna say no…
They fall back onto the bed together, him leaning over to kiss her.
Dylan is also awake now, and Scotty tells him to get rid of Lyn and Oscar – Rachel's behind the sofa and needs to get out! Lyn comes out the kitchen with her little boy, and apologises for waking up Dyl, too. The microwave dings, and Lyn goes to get Oscar's milk; Rachel legs it out the house, Stingray with her, and Dylan calls out, asking where his brother's going. That was so mean!
Lyn wants to know why Scotty's going out – he needs to close the door because it's freezing. Stingray comes back in and is annoyed at his brother for ruining the moment for him, and then Dylan finds a shoe belonging to Rachel. They fight for it, and LackOfSleepLyn™ comes in, cross and annoyed.
LYN: Stop it! Will you stop…it! Oscar will think it's playtime, just calm down, everybody, just CALM DOWN! What are you fighting for anyway?
DYL: It's just the TV…to watch Parliament.
(Oscar runs to the TV)
LYN: Oscar, Oscar don't, Oscar…just cos they carry on like a pack of galahs, doesn't mean you have to, okay? Just….nice and quiet, thanks very much, or just…GO TO BED! The lot of ya! Right. Right.
Harold is still cross with Lou and Mishka, and Sky can't believe they haven't worked it out, yet. She tells her grandad that they've given her unconditional support, and helped her through the hardest two weeks of her life. She sits Harold down, and tells him that she's pregnant.
Cut to later. Harold is sitting in shock, although he says part of him should have seen this coming.
HAROLD: As if you'd have listened. Anything I've ever said about virtue or honour or plain human decency is laughed at, just like the rantings of some old fuddy duddy.
SKY: I made a mistake, and I *know* that.
HAROLD: Well, yes! And now you've got to live with the consequences. But before that, it was just all fun, eh? You are a bright girl. You had a wonderful future, now that's all gone because of your sheer stupidity.
LOU: Harold, this isn't helping.
HAROLD: Lou, how many times do I have to tell you I do *not* need your help to deal with my family? You and your *friend* are not welcome in this house. (To Sky) I pity you, girl. But I will not make excuses for you. You have made a mess of your life and you have only got one person to blame.
Susan creeps home at 3am, and hears Rachel in the house, screaming. Realising someone's awake, she takes off Karl's trainers and throws them in a bush. She goes into the house and pretends to be surprised to see Rachel still up. Rachel *is* surprised to see Susan.
Suse asks why Rachel is up – she heard a noise outside, and was worried that there was something wrong with Chop, and she stepped in a prickle, and is now trying to sort her foot out. Susan would usually pick up on this sort of lie, but with a little secret of her own, she doesn't see it, and has to tell her step-daughter that she had a really bad headache and went to the store to get some aspirin. Rachel quickly makes her excuses and goes to bed. Susan is relieved but looks stunned that she was so nearly caught.
Dylan tells Stingray that his relationship with Rachel is bad news. Scott defends his relationship with Rachel – he loves her, and Susan wouldn't understand if she found out. Dylan apologises and says that Sky going to the doctor's is getting to him. Scott thought he would be relieved – is he ready to be a dad, yet?
Dylan thinks that no-one else can really help with the big stuff. Elle's been great, though, listening, and giving him space.
Lou and Mishka offer Sky a home with them, when they find somewhere to live. Harold is standing in the background, listening. Sky says she doesn't blame her granddad – she's let him down, and he must think she's dirt.
Harold interrupts – he'd like a word with Sky alone.
He sits with her on the sofa and apologises for his behaviour. Sky says it's okay – she was expecting it, anyway. But this upsets Harold – he doesn't want his granddaughter to be afraid of him, not the way Kerry was when she found out she was pregnant with Sky. He says that it took her years to pluck up the courage to tell him she'd had a child out of wedlock. He doesn't want to be seen as a tyrant in his own family.
Sky knows he doesn't approve, and it's a shock to him. But Harold says he shouldn't claim to be an authority. They tell each other that they love each other, and Sky tells him that Dylan's the father, and he knows, although she doesn't really know what he thinks of becoming a dad. She also doesn't know what she thinks of becoming a mother.
HAROLD: All I can do is repeat what I've said. I love you. You have my support and you have my respect.
Ramsay Street, Number 28, Number 26
Susan is picking Karl's trainers out the bush, and packing them into a rubbish bag. Rachel is returning from Stingray's with her forgotten shoe. Rachel hides the shoe; Susan sees Rachel and clutches the bag. There are some awkward hellos. Rachel tells Susan she went for a walk. Susan tells Rachel she has some rubbish for the bin. Twice.
They both look as guilty as hell.
Cut to outside number 26 where Stingray and Dylan leave the house, Stingray with his bike. Dylan tells him he's going to see Sky and how she is. He doesn't know if he'll make things better or harder for her, though.
Sky sees Dylan coming up the drive and answers the door to him. He asks how she's been, and he apologises for not being around – it was wrong of him. He tells her that he knows she's been through a lot, but she tells him she's still pregnant. He can't believe that she didn't tell him this earlier – he only found out because he came round. She tells him that he hasn't been around to be able to tell him. Dylan thinks that's just an excuse.
Sky tells him that it's her body, and that this has been a really difficult time for her. He counters that with the fact that this is his child.
SKY: Whilst it's growing inside me, it's *my* child.
He tells her that if she wants to shut him out, that's fine – she's on her own.
Dylan storms into the house and tells Scott that Sky gets a kick from pushing him around. He tells his brother that he thought Sky was recovering at home, but she's done a total turnabout and is still pregnant. Scott can't believe it – she cancelled the appointment.
He suddenly looks thoughtful.
The Scarlet Bar / The Kennedy House
Karl comes into the bar, and tells Lou what a wonderful day it is.
LOU: Karl, are you back on the sauce again?
Karl tells Lou that the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day! He also tells him that it takes 43 muscles to frown and only 17 to smile.
His phone rings – it's Susan.
KARL: Hello there, Mrs Kinski. I hope you're well, I'm talking to our colleague Lou Carpenter about what a beautiful day it is.
SUSAN: Yes. It is unseasonably bright and sunny.
LOU: Whatever you're getting, I want some.
Karl tells Susan he needs to curb his enthusiasm, he's getting suspicious. Plus, he's cancelled his patients today, keep himself free in case ‘something came up.' Susan tells him she's on school holidays, ‘free of fancy and loose of foot.'
KARL: My place?
SUSAN: Too far.
KARL: Your place?
SUSAN: Are you trying to be funny?
KARL: Actually, do you remember our forbidden spot, October 97?
SUSAN: In the middle of the *day*?
KARL: What's the matter, are you chicken?
SUSAN: I'll meet you there in five.
Karl looks gleeful and runs out the bar.
Middle of Lassiters Park / Greenery / some open space
Stingray tells Sky that he's tried to keep his distance, but he needs to know – is the child his?? Sky tells him no – the dates don't fit, Dylan's the only one. Scott tells her it's freaking him out that she's pregnant. She agrees – she's terrified and feeling sick, but she's fine.
Sky tells him that Harold will stand by her, no matter what she decides, but Dylan might not speak to her again. Scott says he will – he just needs time. Sky asks if she's being selfish by seeing this as her journey and not including Dylan; Stingray says she has to do what's right for her.
Sky thinks maybe it would be better if it was Scott's baby – they can at least talk. He says he'll take her for a coffee – but she can't have coffee, so she'll have a chai tea latte instead.
They walk off and the camera pans up – to reveal a half-dressed Karl and Susan peering out of some bushes.
SUSAN: Pregnant! Did you know?!
SUSAN AND KARL: Oh!
Dylan and Oscar are playing pirates, and Lyn and Scott come in. Lyn tells them lunch is ready, but they continue to play. Lyn thanks Dylan for playing with her son, at which point:
OSCAR: Only me! It's only Ingo! It's only me! It's only me!
TOO cute!!! Lyn comments that with a child, most of it is heart, the rest is just detail. Dylan comments to his brother that it's easy when you can give them back…
Number 24 where dinner's ready – and so is Sky
Harold has made a meal for Lou and Mishka, and apologises. Lou says that they will get their own place, sooner or later. Harold realised that after Sky's news, he doesn't want to drive good friends away.
Sky comes home at that point and has some news – she's ready to be a mother. Harold looks just delighted and cuddles her.
