Cameron is wheeled into hospital on a trolley by Karl and some random medics, closely followed by Max and Katya. Karl says that Cameron's pulse and respiration are down and also there's possible spinal damage and internal haemorraging.
Paul and Elle run in looking for Robert.
KARL: He's critical. We don't know if he's going to make it through.
Toadie is playing with Charlie while Steph is mashing up some food for him. Steph is somewhat surprised to see Toadie enjoying playing with a baby! Toadie asks Steph if she talked to Max about Katya. She tells him about what happened at the pub (Katya ringing in the middle of their conversation). Toadie says that Max hasn't done anything wrong, but Steph says it won't hurt Max to stew over it a bit longer! Toadie is really surprised to hear that Max turn down the football tickets - he says that he, Steph and Charlie should go instead!
Carmella and Izzy are chatting amiably about Izzy's past loves and conquests. Toadie comes in to get a few things to go to the footie.
Carmella tells Izzy that Toadie put a webcam in the No.30 bathroom. Just then, Toadie asks them if they've got any binoculars. Izzy and Carmella laugh to themselves and agree that Toadie is a perve! Toadie comes back looking for a "long trenchcoat" and their incredulity stretches further.
TOADIE: It's going to be a bit cold out there tonight!
IZZY: Um...Toad...I think there a law against that sort of thing!
TOADIE: I'm going to the footy! Dirty minds, the both of you!
Carmella tells Izzy that it's good to be back in Erinsborough again, just hanging out.
IZZY: Yeah, it's really good to have you back. Do you want to know something? You're the best friend I've ever had. I just wish I'd got to know you a bit sooner.
Paul is pacing while Max, Katya and Elle just sit there silently. Paul tells Elle that they have to think positively. Elle thinks a lot of people would be pleased if RObert didn't make it through, but Paul says Robert's still his son and he wants him to live.
The police arrive to talk to Max and Katya. They go into a private room.
Carmella thanks Izzy for the dinner, but she has to go now: duty calls, at the soup kitchen, then her rounds at the hospital. Izzy tells Carmella that she thought the whole nun thing was about praying and making people feel guilty - she didn't realise it was so hands-on. Izzy suggests that she comes with Carmella on her rounds. Carmells is surprised, but agrees.
The police are interviewing Max and Katya strictly informally.
STEIGER: Mr Hoyland, how did you come to be at the crime scene. Well?
Paul is ranting that Robert was allowed to escape from a maximum security prison. There is no news yet on the condition of the patient. The nurse gives Paul a bag with the patient's things in it.
Max has told the police that he came to the crime scene because he was coming to help Katya.
STEIGER: How did you come to hit the victim with your car?
MAX: I saw him, he was chasing Katya. I panicked, I don't know, I swerved the car.
MAX: No! It was reflex. I was scared for Katya.
Elle wants to ring Cameron to tell him what's happened, but Paul says he'd be halfway to Tasmania by now.
MAX: I didn't set out to hurt anyone.
KATYA: That's true, it was an accident.
STEIGER: Be that as it may, the accident occurred because you took the law into your own hands, right?
MAX: Oh, please. The guy had just escaped from prison, the first thing he does is hunt down Katya. I was trying to protect my friend from who knows what!
STEIGER. Wait a minute. Escaped from prison? Look I'm sorry I think you both need to be made aware of something here.
Elle calls Cameron and the phone in Paul's bag of "patient's things" rings.
Paul realises that Cameron is the patient. He gets up and staggers to the door of Cameron's room.
PAUL: Oh God no! No!
Later at the hospital
Paul has calmed down a bit now and has sorted out what's happened - apparently Robert didn't escape after all, he was just hiding to stir up the prison guards.
Karl comes out and tries to talk to Paul.
PAUL:(sobbing) I don't want to hear any excuses, Karl, I do not want to hear that you're doing the best you can, I just want you to save...I already know that it's Cameron in there, OK, so just bloody well save my son!
KARL: Paul, you're going to have to keep your emotions in check for Cameron's sake. And that goes for Elle as well. I'll let you know as soon as there's a change.
Elle tells Paul that it's all her fault - it's karma payback for her disgusting lies: they brought it on themselves, this is their punishment.
Apparently Izzy abandoned the soup kitchen and is now spraying perfume on herself.
IZZY: It's just that some of them really stink. Don't they know how to wash themselves?
CARMELLA:(amused) Mmm, I know! Why don't they have soap in their solid gold bathtubs.
IZZY: Just because you choose to live on the street, it doesn't mean you can't make an effort!
CARMELLA: No-one chooses to live on the streets.
Carmella explains that living on the streets could happen to anyone - it just takes a few poor life decisions. Izzy takes this in and suddenly changes her mind - she goes to have a look if there's any stock at the Scarlet Bar they can spare. Carmella reminds her - no booze!
Paul and Elle are bent over Cameron's bed. He wakes up at that moment and doesn't know what's happened. Paul tells him he's going to be fine. They talk to him, and he can't remember they were fighting.
CAMERON: Elle, can you give me and Dad a minute, please.
PAUL: Oh, you had us worried there for a minute mate. In a few days you'll be back to your best, though.
CAMERON: I can't feel my legs, Dad. I can't feel them at all.
Paul tries to keep his emotions in check.
Izzy and Carmella drive up, having been to the soup kitchen. Izzy has taken the street people some soap(!)
CARMELLA: Mmmm I love that new car smell.
IZZY: (thinks) It's yours. The car. I'm donating it to you. You can keep it, you can sell it for the convent.
Carmella asks Izzy what's going on. Izzy says it's about time she started doing good things. She says that life's too short - it just took her a long time to realise it. Carmella says she has to keep the car and not go over the top. They head off to the hospital on Carmella's rounds.
Carmella and Izzy chance across Elle and she tells them what's happened.
Paul storms in and demands of Steiger whether he's arrested Max. He tries to give Steiger money to arrest Max! Steiger says he'll overlook Paul's behaviour this time - he has a child of his own. Paul says that Max ran Cameron down deliberately - and that Max was jealous because he saw Cameron talking to "his lover".
Steph, Toadie and Charlie are back from the football. Steph calls out to Max, but of course he isn't there. She finds a note in the kitchen from Izzy and laughs - it's from Izzy saying she's out doing the rounds with Sister Mary Catherine!
Steph is cross that Max isn't there, nor at the Scarlet Bar. Toadie says he could be at any number of places, doing innocent things.
Steph is banging on the door and Toadie is trying to reason with her. He says that Steph should just trust Max - he loves her.
STEPH: I think I hurt my hand!
Paul is picking up his money resignedly. He sits in a chair and sobs. Izzy comes in to see him and they hug, then they kiss. Paul tries to make more of the kiss, but Izzy pushes him off. Paul says it's the only thing Izzy is good for. She leaves in disgust.
Steph is changing Charlie's nappy, much to Toadie's disgust.
The door opens and it's Max. Katya is with him. Toadie offers to walk Katya home.
STEPH: What the hell's going on?
Cameron's room at the hospital
Carmella is attending to Cameron.
CARMELLA: How are you feeling?
CAMERON: Promise me something. If I don't get through this...
CARMELLA: Come on.
CAMERON: No, please, listen, Sister. Find that baby, OK. Make things right.
Steph is incredulous at what's happened. Max looks shellshocked and says his mind is just a blur - he made a choice and swerved the car. Steph starts to cry and says that Max wasn't to know - he thought it was Robert and he acted to save Katya's life.
MAX: You know I love you, don't you, Steph?
STEPH: Of course I do.
MAX: I don't know what I'd do without you.
Steph has come to tell Toadie what's happened, but Katya has already filled him in. Steph is shocked to the core and starts to cry.
STEPH: Why would he see her again, Toadie when he knew it made me scared? You know, now why is it his problem that she gets a letter from Robert? And then to go and run a man down for her, why would he do that?
TOADIE: I don't know.
STEPH: Why would he do that if he wasn't in love with her?
TOADIE: Come here.
They hug and Steph sobs.
Paul knocks madly on the door until Max answers. Max is shocked to see him. He asks if Cameron is OK. Paul says they don't know if Cameron will live or die - or he may never walk again.
PAUL: There's one thing that you can be sure of, though. If he does die - so do you.
