- Bree breaking up with Zeke
- Sky facing the wrath of Krystal
- Mary learning info about Krystal
With the melodic sounds of “Piglet… Piiiiglet” echoing down the hall, Sky jumps up in alarm when Krystal enters her cell. Shoving Sky out of the way, Krystal snatches Sky's framed pic of Kerry and makes her revengeful intentions known. Sky demands her photo back, but Krystal only sneers and rips it out of the frame.
KRYSTAL: You're going to wish you and your brat had never been born, Sky.
The two then engage in a very staged shoving matching, resulting in Sky getting her prison moxie on all, “You want a fight, biatch? Bring it on!” And then Krystal's all, “Oh yeah? I've already brought it, fool!” But before things get too heated in their G-rated way, Mary arrives to break them up and politely introduce herself to Krystal. Scoffing at the old woman, Krystal screws up Kerry's picture and chucks it on the ground.
KRYSTAL: Later, Piglet.
As Krystal and her cronies leave, Sky wonders what on earth to do next. Smoothing out the photo, Mary tells Sky not worry; she's got it sorted.
Picking up Kerry for babysitting duties, Janelle comments on how quiet it is in the store. Harold and Lou let her know that it's their grand re-opening after Terrence's death.
Harold delivers some Berry Blizzard milkshakes to Bree, Zeke and Ringo. Bree asks him if Kerry's leukaemia results are in yet, but Harold hasn't heard. “I just pray they're all clear.” Zeke can't understand why Bree didn't tell him the news, but Bree gets weirded out when he tries to comfortingly take her hand. Noticing Bree's awkwardness, Rachel and Lolly intervene from a nearby table, hinting at the boys to leave so they can have a girls' night in. As Zeke and Ringo head out, Rachel checks if Bree's okay, but Bree is confused. She has no idea how to act around Zeke now.
BREE: What if there's nowhere for us to go? What if we're nothing?
Ringo can't figure out why the girls were acting so strangely last night. Zeke informs him that he and Bree are no longer together and now Bree's all weirded out whenever she's around him. Ringo didn't think that Bree was that upset, but Zeke just scoffs at him.
ZEKE: Get a clue, girls never say what they're actually thinking!
RINGO: So how are we supposed to know what they want?
ZEKE: Beats me.
Ringo then picks up a magazine and reads the cover with a chuckle, “Hottie or nottie? Ten ways to tell if he's the one”. Eyes lighting up, Zeke thinks they've found the answer to their girl dramas. The quiz will tell them what women want! Or alternatively, they could just call Mel Gibson…
Lolly and Rachel bring Ned a bucket of water while he sweeps up, then join Bree for a chat while she does the books for Janae. Speak of the devil, Janae ambles in and trips over the bucket, immediately blaming Ned for his incompetence. Lolly and Rachel are about to pipe up when Ned covers for them and cops Janae's yelling. Concerned, Ned wonders if recently concussed Janae should really be up and about, but Janae snits that she's fine. The girls wonder why Ned's copping so much flak. Bree replies that Ned might not be as nice as they think.
Mary strolls in for a lovely chat with Krystal, but Krystal couldn't care less about Mary's concerns for Sky. Or Mary for that matter. Spying Kerry's dirty bonnet shoved under the bed, Mary's face turns dark as Krystal continues to taunt her.
MARY: (eerily calm) Please don't make me angry.
KRYSTAL: Or what? You'll whack me with your walking stick?
Ever so slowly taking Krystal's hand in her own, the inmate gets the shock of her life when Mary pulls some WWF moves on her and pins her arm behind her back.
MARY: I really wish you had seen things my way. But it seems that I'm going to have to convince you.
Bree and Ned voice their concerns about Janae getting back into her training so soon after her head injury. Janae mocks Ned's worry, but is probably very glad he's around when she suddenly becomes dizzy and he rushes in to catch her. Whisking her up in his arms all Superman-like, Ned carts her off to the hospital.
Ringo (wearing a pore-strip on his nose) is trying to include Zeke in the ‘choose him or lose him' quiz from the mag, but Zeke is suddenly opposed to the idea.
ZEKE: (ripping the strip off Ringo's nose) You've turned over to the dark side!
RINGO: Ouch. I'm trying to fight the seven signs of aging here.
Baby. Those things don't even work! Ringo asks Zeke to quiz him and Zeke thinks they should both have a stab at it.
RINGO: Maybe that's not such a great idea.
ZEKE: What? You saying I'm a dud boyfriend?
RINGO: (sincere) No, I think you're a great boyfriend.
Things then get very ‘duuuuude… awkward' between them and they inch away from one another on the couch. Covering, Ringo explains that Zeke was recently dumped therefore he shouldn't take part. But Zeke thinks that Ringo's just afraid of a little competition. Let the quizzing begin!
Janae and Ned have joined Bree for lunch after their hospital visit, where the verdict was no competitive sparring for at least a week. Janae says she'll play along on one condition: Ned helps her train on the sly in the meantime. Janelle (with Kerry) walks in smirking her face off and informs Janae that she's just spoken to Libby on the phone: the garage is officially theirs! Janae's stoked and promptly orders slave Ned back to work.
JANELLE: Timmins and cars, eh?
BREE: From the back seat to under the bonnet!
JANAE: Oh ha, ha.
Ned watches the girls' happiness with a pleased grin.
Zeke reads out a perfect result, which Ringo smugly assumes is his, but is quickly shut down when he finds out it's Zeke's.
ZEKE: Here's yours. ‘Girlfriend, you've got no taste in men. Zero, zilch, nada. Lose this Neanderthal; he's an emotional abyss'.
RINGO: I don't understand.
ZEKE: An abyss. It's a bottomless pit of…
But Ringo actually doesn't understand how he scored so horribly when he's the one with the girlfriend and Zeke was the one who was dumped. Immediately regretful, Ringo apologises and tells Zeke that he should ask Lolly out. That way, if Bree thinks Zeke has moved on, she won't feel so weird about hanging out. Zeke fails miserably at convincing Ringo he's not interested, and then wonders why he's taking advice from Mr Emotional Abyss 2007 anyway. Taking this to heart, Ringo thinks he needs to find a new angle in his relationship with Rach.
General Store – Kitchen
Lou isn't coping very well with the lack of customers.
LOU: Maybe we should revamp the menu. What about ‘homicide hummus'?
(Harold's not impressed)
LOU: ‘Deadly date pud, it'll kill your diet'!
Harold wants Lou to quit it; he wouldn't be acting the fool if Sky were around to hear. Harold also wonders why Lou hasn't visited her since he delivered the care package last week. Lou admits that he wouldn't know what to say to her, but Harold feels it's important Lou keeps treating Sky normally.
Sky's sad about not being with Kerry when she gets her leukaemia results today. Cheering up her cellie, Mary presents Sky with Kerry's newly-washed fluffy bonnet. Sky's chuffed and wonders how Mary got it. Doe-eyed, Mary explains that Krystal must have had an accident and was being carted off on a trolley, so Mary nipped in and reclaimed the hat. Unable to contain her delight, Sky wonders how she can thank Mary. Suppressing her urge to shout ‘GIVE ME YOUR BABY! I LOVE BABYZ!' Mary tells her it was nothing.
MARY: What goes around comes around.
On cue, Krystal is wheeled by the door on her stretcher, clutching her arm and writhing in agony from the Mary-fu.
SKY: Oh my God, she looks like she's in a lot of pain.
MARY: Yeah she does, doesn't she…
Rowena Wallace not blinking = freaking me out. Scary Mary indeed.
Relenting on her earlier stance, Janae tells Ned she'll take it easy on the heavy boxing for a while. But it's for her mum's peace of mind, not his. She's still gonna train, however. Ned wants Janae to clear it with her mum first before he helps her; he doesn't want to be in Janelle's bad books again. Getting a surprise, Ned smiles when Janae actually listens to him and goes to seek out Janelle.
Janae arrives just as Harold is on the phone to Kerry's doctor getting her results. Harold, Janelle, Janae, Bree and Lou then squee with glee when they discover that Kerry's in remission. Nearly poking himself in the eye with the phone antenna, Harold happily goes off to get ready to see Sky. Janae tries to ask her mum about boxing but earns a swift ‘no' in return. Janelle wants her nowhere near the sport, “You are not boxing, end of story.” Janae is well bovvered.
Number 24 Pool
Rachel and Lolly vow to be nice to Zeke all day so he doesn't mope around. Lolly jumps in the water to muck around with him while Ringo brings some drinks out to Rachel. Trying out his new SNAG-persona, Ringo tells Rach that he's endeavouring to help Zeke become more emotionally available. Pleased with this new, sensitive change in her boyfriend's personality, Rachel gives Ringo a smooch while Ringo and Zeke swap thumbs-up. Lou brings around some snacks (mmm… homicide hummus) from the GS and Ringo brings out his feminine side a little more.
Arm in a sling, Krystal cagily eyes Mary and offers Sky a deal: “I'll stay out of your way, you stay out of mine”. Warily accepting this, Sky offers out her hand for Krystal to shake but gets shunned. Queen of manners, Mary thinks it would be a lovely gesture for Krystal to reciprocate, giving her the freaky unblinky-Bill eyes. Krystal quickly shakes Sky's hand then storms out of the cell.
Following Krystal out, Mary promises to keep her distance if Krystal keeps on being a good girl, which includes continuing to be nice to Sky. Krystal's about to get all rude and snarky when Mary clutches her bruised arm.
MARY: I would hate for you to have another accident. Because the next time you could be seriously hurt.
Oh, I think it's Krystal Klear now… Yes! I have been waiting all summary to get that dorky line out!
Sparring with Janae, Ned thinks it's great that Janelle was so understanding about the boxing. Uh, not so much, Noodles. Just then, Janelle angrily appears and tells Janae off for defying her wishes. Falling on his sword again, Ned insists it was his fault, copping a few pushes in the chest from Janelle for his efforts. Coming to his rescue, Janae tells her mum the truth. She knows Janelle's been through a lot and is just worried about her, but Janae's been through the wringer too.
JANAE: I lost a brother and a husband in the same month, okay?
JANELLE: I'm just scared, Janae. I don't want to see you get hurt again.
JANAE: I won't. Boxing… I don't know. It makes me feel better, stronger. I love it.
NED: She's got the passion, Janelle. She could be a champion.
JANAE: Mum I've never felt this way about anything.
Seeing how much it means to her daughter, Janelle concedes defeat and warningly tells Ned he better keep an eye out for Janae.
Mary asks Sky if she's filled in the forms to bring Kerry in, but Sky still isn't sure about putting her baby in so much danger. Mary assures Sky that she'll be fine with Mary in her corner – they're a team! She'll totally teach Sky some Mary-fu! Sky notices her family approaching and Mary quickly makes an excuse to scurry off, lest Harold recognize her.
Sky scoops Kerry up in her arms and celebrates her remission with Harold and Janelle. She then lets them know that she's decided to bring Kerry into prison with her. Janelle's pleased but Harold can't hide his concern about all the danger lurking about.
Speaking of, Mary and her unblinking eyes peer out at them from behind a tree. Staring at Kerry, a small smile forms on Mary's face. Uh-oh.
