Harold and Sky bickering over looking after Kerry.
Paul telling Pepper she has the hots for him
Rosie and Carmella finding out from a letter that Rocco is dying.
Carmella is in shock at the news about her dad but Rosie thinks it is a con by him for them to do his dirty work and reminds Carmella about the curse her mum tried to put on her if she didn't marry Johnny. The sisters start bickering about their parents, completely ignoring Frazer's request for them to stop. Finally Carmella issues an ultimatum – stop telling her what to do and don't call her stupid! Carmella storms out and Frazer thinks it would be a good idea to have “the talk” with Rosie but she is too annoyed to listen to him and heads out the back door.
No. 30 garden
Rosie starts hanging up the washing and Frazer eventually follows her and runs into Ringo and asks how “the talk” went. When he indicates there was no talk, Ringo starts making chicken noises at him but Frazer isn't in the mood and sends him off to school.
Frazer approaches Rosie and teases her for taking her frustration out on the washing and offers her an ear but Rosie doesn't want to bore him with his family issues, which Frazer uses as a subtle way to talk about his family. He starts by saying he got nothing from his family and so left but has no regrets and adds it is okay for her not to have her father in her life if she doesn't want it.
Dylan is relaying Elle's gossip about Will having 6 nipples to Sky while they play with Kerry. She thinks it is strange that nobody saw it since he was always going around topless and decides she has to see them but it then dawns on her that he isn't around anymore but Dylan comes up with an alternative – it is hereditary and his brother is always hanging around!
Their chat is interrupted by Harold entering to take Kerry away to a Baby Mozart class despite Dylan saying he took the day off work to spend time with his daughter and Sky especially. Sky isn't amused either and Dylan's sarcastic comment is wasted on Harold as he departs with Kerry.
DYLAN: And I thought mum was supposed to be the overbearing parent in the family.
Sky points out to him that she has her hands full we see into the kitchen that Janelle is rather occupied with Steiger acting all lovey-dovey with him. Dylan is not impressed!
In the kitchen we find out that Janelle has been feeding Steiger cheese & bacon balls! He asks her to lay off the lovey-dovey names when they are in public. “Oh you'll cope, they're part of who I am,” says Janelle and turns on the puppy-dog eyes to back this up. Steiger asks if they should be completely honest about who they are.
JANELLE: Well love means not having to pretend…unless it's something hideously embarrassing like wearing ladies clothing.
Steiger stalls for an answer and Janelle goes straight into panic mode and accuses him of wearing ladies knickers! He quickly assures her it is nothing like that and asks her to give him a couple of hours and he'll show her everything. Ooh mysterious!
Oliver is round again and he gives Carmella advice on what to do about her dad when she asks his advice. He says he'd have loved to have said goodbye to his parents and adds for her to do it for herself, not for Rosie. She replies that he doesn't know her dad and that Rosie will think she is weak. Oliver remarks that he thinks Rosie is the weak one by trying to avoid the tough stuff.
Pepper calls round to pick up the cheque for the Blogszene and enquires if Paul's chat up lines has ever worked when he tries to schmooze her, since it is a real turn off these days! “Thanks for the update” replies Paul as he writes the cheque.
PAUL: How about we seal the deal with a kiss eh? One good turn deserves another.
PEPPER: If it will prove how unattractive I am to you, bring it on!
Before she can catch her breath he kisses her…and we're not talking about a peck on the cheek but a full blow pash!
PEPPER: (breaking the kiss off) See, not attracted. Thanks for the donation!
Pepper then heads out of the house and from the look on her face as she closes the door, she seemed to have liked what happened!
No. 26 driveway
Steiger undoes Janelle's blindfold to show her what his secret was – he's into model trains!
JANELLE: This is your deep dark secret?
She goes all quiet on him and he thinks she is embarrassed by him but Janelle quickly reassures him she isn't as Dylan and Sky arrive.
DYLAN: (excited) How cool is this?
SKY: (not excited) It's a toy train.
Janelle quickly corrects her by saying it is a model train and Dylan asks Steiger to have a shot and is turned down due to them being vintage but he eventually relents and earns a kiss from Janelle.
Dylan is having real fun playing with the train set even earning a scowl from Steiger for misusing the whistle! Seems like Steiger isn't the only model train enthusiast but Ringo and Frazer too and they head over! “Oh I miss my trains,” says Frazer as he arrives in the driveway and seems pleased when Ringo volunteers to go and get them. The boys depart so Frazer can escort his brother back to school and Steiger takes the opportunity to invite Janelle to the club meeting that is on that very afternoon! Janelle is looking for an excuse not to go but Sky blows her babysitting one out of the water and Dylan cooking dinner but Steiger then remembers that it is being held at Lassiter's and so can't come due to the intervention order.
Ringo arrives at school and starts eyeing up Pepper's rear when she has her back to him but his attention is forced back into focus when she comes over to talk to him about the Blogzene.
Frazer tells Oliver that getting Carmella to go see her dad was a good move. Sky and Dylan enter and having seen Oliver sitting chatting to Frazer, start talking about making Janelle's bust and how Frazer isn't suitable but Oliver might be! Dylan starts feeling the poor guy up so he can see how many nipples he has. Thankfully Oliver treats it like a joke and Sky eventually explains what she is up to so she too can have a feel. Harold enters the bar but doesn't like what he sees so does a 180 with the pram and departs.
On the way out of the bar, Dylan tells Sky he felt one…but it might have been a mole! Back with the guys and Oliver announces “that was seriously weird!” before he and Frazer have a ding-dong over parents but he gets the last word by saying that his parents are dead.
Ooh been a while since we've been here! Rosie locks her car and runs into Carmella as they head towards the main gate both are trying to make the other see their perspective but neither concedes their position. As they near the gate, they walk in holding each other's hand.
Steiger is in his element at the model train swap meet and Paul ribs him about his train uniform he has on but Steiger has the last laugh – a subtle dig at Paul by saying building relationships with your kids stops them turning out wrong! 1-0 to the sergeant!
PAUL: Yes, yes, you're just a regular font of wisdom aren't you?
STEIGER: You know, maybe if you shared something with your kids they wouldn't have turned out the way they did – one in the prison for the criminally insane the other one living with Janelle because she can't stand you. Apparently you've got more somewhere but who knows where they are.
2-0 to the sergeant! Paul walks off in a huff and doesn't recognise Janelle (who is also dressed like Steiger) when he bumps into her. Janelle however has arrived too late, all the models are being packed away but tells him that they can think of something else to amuse themselves…starting with a kiss!
Carmella comments to Rosie that Rocco looks terrible as he makes his way out to see them and no cheesy Italian music either! He dishes out the compliments to her while Rosie scowls at him. Rocco wants to talk small talk about her job with Toadie but she gets straight to the point by asking him if it is true. Carmella finishes off the sentence by adding “are you going to die?”
ROCCO: Some day my angel. Some day we shall all die.
ROSIE: Mmm but not before the end of the week.
Rosie decides she's done and drags Carmella up so they can leave but Rocco asks them to stay and listen to him. He says he isn't dying but has something else to tell them…a matter of life or death!
Steiger gently chastises Janelle for coming down to Lassiter's just to wind Paul up and Janelle asks if she is going to get a personal frisking for it! Ooh er! They start to kiss just as Pepper enters closely followed by Paul. He causes her to jump out of her skin when he comes up behind her, like you were going to kiss someone, and she hastily exits the bar.
Paul interrupts the kissing couple to remind her she is breaking the court order and Steiger jumps in to remind Paul it only applies at his home or place of work so to back off. 3-0 to the sergeant!
JANELLE: Way to go schmooze baby!
In the office Frazer is recovering from knowing who Oliver really is, well which family he belongs to, and wondering why Will was slumming it working in a bar in Erinsborough.
Oliver fills us in with some other details too – he signed everything over to Will and since he's disappeared off the face of the earth, the guy who kept pestering Will (Alan Napier), stands to get the lot. Frazer urges him to fight and do what is brother wasn't doing.
Rocco explains the problem – his brother Ray because he is blaming Carmella for ruining Teresa's life and costing him a granddaughter and wants them to pay. Carmella apologises, which Rocco accepts, and adds that Ray is set to ruin him… “Ruin us”.
ROSIE: Right, well, thanks for the history lesson.
Rocco explains that is why he needs their help. Rosie asks how can they bankroll his business given she is only an article clerk and Carmella a hospital orderly. She starts laughing when Rocco tells them there is money buried but soon stops when she hears the amount - $200,000 (or about £80k in Sterling) – and that it is buried near a tree in the park they played in as kids!
ROCCO: If you can't manage I'll understand.
ROSIE: First you lie to us about dying and then you drag us into some family feud and now you are asking us to dig up dirty money.
Rocco quietly says it isn't dirty money but Rosie has had enough and says she'll see him in 5-7 years before dragging a reluctant Carmella away.
Harold lifts Kerry out of her car seat and carefully puts her into her pram while over at No. 26 Steiger is back playing with his model train set listening to Frazer reminisces about his one. Ringo leaves them to invite Pepper to join them, when he spots her standing in the street, but she turns him down.
Back with Harold and his back goes when he takes something out of the back of the car but that isn't the only thing that goes, the pram takes off down the driveway with Kerry in it! Ringo reacts quickly to Harold's cry and stops the pram before it can tip over. Harold praises him even though he is in major pain with his back and after checking to see who is around, asks if they can just keep it between themselves to save worrying anyone and Ringo readily agrees.
SKY: What's a six letter word for sour?
LOL nice one Dylan but Sky thinks the correct answer is grumpy, and given Harold's behaviour of late it is really another name for him!
Dylan comments on how good Stinger has been lately and thinks it is due to Rachel. He then describes what happened last week with the high he got from the dress but Sky does nothing to correct it.
Harold and Kerry enter and Sky is not happy because they were supposed to meet at 2.30 but Harold says he was at TSB and saw the fun they were happening and decided to take Kerry for a drive instead. Dylan is questioning him about taking off without letting them know and Harold says he thought it would be for the best. This doesn't go down well with Kerry's parents and Sky wants them to have it out, reminding her grandfather that they aren't kids but Kerry's parents and they decide not him. Harold is not amused!
Pepper moans at Frazer about not doing anything with her dad anymore but he reminds her that she was the one who wanted to put some distance between her parents. “You're supposed to be helping,” Pepper tells him and Frazer says she should give him a break because he is a great guy…when he doesn't have a crossbow in his hand!
Ringo interrupts to show his brother something and from the comments they are making, Pepper assumes they are talking about a female until Frazer shows her the bit of paper and we see they have been drooling over a train! Pepper joins in the drooling of the train because it is an extremely rare one and the 3 of them head into the livingroom to bid for it and taking their place in the kitchen via the corridor is the Cammeniti sisters.
They are at loggerheads again – Carmella wants to help Rocco but Rosie says he needs henchmen! Carmella wants to know why and Rosie gives it to her straight.
ROSIE: He doesn't care about us; he just wants us to do the dirty work. I won't and neither will you. As of today, our relationship with Rocco Cammeniti is over.
Carmella arrives in the bar and runs into Paul and bluntly says she wants a word.
PAUL: If you play your cards right you can have a whole sentence!
CARMELLA: Stay out of my personal life.
A puzzled Paul wants to know what she is going on about and turns out she is annoyed about him telling Rosie about the Barnes' fortune and issues him with a “stay away from Rosie” threat too.
Paul seems to take it in his stride as she heads over to the waiting Oliver who has bemused her by ordering champers. She smiles when Oliver explains he's told Alan he is going to fight for the family business. He asks how it went with her dad and Carmella explains that she feels like she's spent her whole life being treated like a Barbie doll due to him fussing over her but only taking Rosie seriously.
CARMELLA: It's about time I proved I'm more than just a pretty face.
