Rebecca tells Elle that Paul has given Laura a hotel room as he thinks she might be in danger. Elle wonders why Paul never told her this. Elle picks up the local newspaper and sees the headline ‘confession' along with a picture of the burning Lassiter's and a small picture of Gus. Over on the other side of the store Susan, Karl, Miranda and Steve are in disbelief of the news story. A worried Elle and Rebecca watch them gossip.
Pepper is handing out some finger food to Rosie and Adam who clearly aren't enjoying how cold the food is. Adam comments that he's invited Sophie whom Rosie sarcastically says will be nice. Pepper says that she's invited Riley in an attempt for him to meet everybody. Pepper explains to Rosie that Riley is Ned's nephew who is a really nice guy who goes running. Plus, he offered to cook them all dinner. There's a knock on the door. Pepper expects it to be Riley but its Sophie instead. Sophie walks in ignoring an uncomfortable Pepper. Adam decides to go and get everyone some drinks while Rosie decides to pop the finer food back in the oven. Pepper forces a quick smile towards Sophie.
The General Store
Rebecca is trying to comfort Elle about the newspaper report. She confirms that the article doesn't name any names and hopefully it will stay that way. Elle and Rebecca try to think of how the newspaper got this information before they're interrupted by Declan. Rebecca tells Declan to get himself some dinner at the Store while she and Elle continue their catch-up. Declan walks over to talk to Bridget and Rachel who are enjoying a milkshake. They give him the silent treatment which prompts Declan to call Didge a ‘chicken' for not going on a joy ride with him.
Karl and Susan are debating who the anonymous confession is from. Karl thinks it may have been Robert Robinson but Susan says that the fire was way before his time. Susan explains to Miranda and Steve that Robert is Paul's son and that he was a little troubled. More like stark raving mad! Lou calls over to the foursome so they turn around to find that Elle was listening to their every word.
A furious Elle walks in and throws a newspaper at Riley and asks what the hell it is. She thinks that he helped write the story to impress his boss. Riley insists that he didn't write it and doesn't know anything about it. Elle accidentally lets it slip that the anonymous person written about in the paper, is her father, Paul. Riley is shocked but Elle protests his innocence. She explains his confession on him having brain surgery and demands that Riley keep this to himself. Elle decides that she's going to go and see Brad, the newspaper editor and Riley decides to go with her.
Brad is having something to eat at Charlie's when Elle and Riley rush in. Elle slams the newspaper down into his food and asks if he remembers her. She hassles him to drop the story or he'll be dealing with her lawyers. He claims that she has no grounds and that he's done nothing wrong. He sees Riley and asks for his opinion on the story. He says that he thinks that it's all seems a bit sloppy, printing unsubstantiated rumours. Brad is adamant that the rumours are true as he's heard it himself from the cops. He says that he won't print Paul's name as there is no new evidence. If there is any new evidence he will be naming names, as it's the public right to know.
Rachel is trying to convince Bridget to let her give her a make over. Didge however, doesn't like the idea so frantically runs around in panic. She pleads for Rachel to stop chasing her otherwise she'll tackle her. Rachel stops and tells her that they had a deal. Rachel did the rock climbing if Didge had a makeover. A peeved Bridget gives in and tells her to be quick.
Over in the No. 26 kitchen Riley is attempting to clam Elle down by saying that unless there is fresh new evidence, which probably won't turn up, Paul won't be revealed as the anonymous confessor. Elle is still obdurate that her father is innocent so Riley thinks they should try and bury the story once and for all. At the moment though, they should just relax. Riley comments that he's been invited to a dinner party at No.30 which he invites Elle to. He remembers that he said he'd cook for the party which surprises Elle. It seems that his Mum taught him how to cook so that he wouldn't starve at university. He shows her his Pasta Bake which he describes in some Italian gibberish. Elle think that she probably shouldn't go as Oliver is friends with the No. 30 gang and so they probably don't like her.
It seems Elle has changed her mind about the party so she apologizes for crashing as she's passed a plate of food. Oliver walks in with a bottle of wine and notices Elle at the table - he doesn't seem impressed. Riley introduces himself to Ollie while Pepper exclaims how great it is that Riley has cooked.
PEPPER: Riley cooked. How's that for making friends and influencing people?
Riley says his Italian gibberish again which Rosie translates as ‘Chicken in the toilet'. Riley insists that it will taste better than it sounds. After a prompt from Pepper, Riley reveals that he's currently single.
PEPPER: (High pitched) Oh! Did you hear that Sophie?
An uncomfortable Sophie smiles.
ROSIE: Subtle, Pep.
Pepper delightfully explains that there are three single men present at the table, one of which is rich. Sophie really is spoilt for choice! Elle changes the subject and comments on how nice the plates are. Rosie tells her that they don't have the complete set as Ringo broke some and Carmella threw one at the wall. She's not sure why though. Typical Carmella if you ask me! They begin to talk about share houses and how they shouldn't buy anything nice if you are living in shared accommodation.
ROSIE: Because . . .
FRAZER: Because you know your flat mates are just gonna trash ‘em.
ROSIE: You're finishing my sentences now?
The tension between Rosie and Frazer is broken when Sophie explains that she was once called out to domestic in a shared house. She begins to explain that there was fight over whose turn it was to do the dishes before Pepper interrupts by laughing and asking if anyone else wants another drink. Without even being asked, Pepper fills up Sophie's glass. Riley, accompanied by Elle, decides to go and get the dessert from his place. Oliver puts on a sullen face as he watches Riley and Elle go towards the door.
PEPPER: Uh! This is so much fun. Cheers!
Bridget describes her makeover as ‘good' which pleases Rachel who thinks that Didge is naturally hot. Riley walks in alongside Elle and laughs wondering what the hell is going on. An embarrassed Didge walks to her room while Elle gives Riley a nudge of disapproval.
Miranda, Steve, Karl and Susan have brought up some drinks and go to sit down. Karl and Susan are doing the usual banter talking about golf. Karl gleefully confirms that he ‘trashed the pants off her' prompting a ‘blah blah blah' response from Susan. The foursome laugh.
STEVE: If we played golf darling, I could thrash the pants off you.
MIRANDA: Well, we don't need to play golf to do that, do we darling?
Lou comes along and asks if he can join them. Susan says that they were just talking about him. Miranda tells Lou that Karl and Susan were talking about their golf obsession.
KARL: No, I have an obsession with golf. Susan has more of a recurring nightmare.
LOU: So the tips are working then?
A shocked Susan tells Lou that they had an exclusive arrangement but Lou insists that he gives them both different advice about gold, as Karl paid for his.
KARL: You give her tips for free?!
LOU: She needs them more than you.
SUSAN: Excuse moi.
Karl asks Lou for word so they go off for a chat. Susan welcomes Rebecca who has just arrived through the door. Susan offers Rebecca to come and sit down with them but Rebecca says that she's looking for Declan. Susan and the gang say that they haven't seen him. Rebecca makes a quick glance to Paul on the other side of the bar before making her way out.
Elle wonders if they should be going back to the party but Riley wants to wait for Didge to apologize to her. Right on cue, Didge walks in and tells Riley to ‘get lost'. He says he's sorry and that it was a shock as he's never seen her like that before. He's never seen her made up like a girl.
BRIDGET: I am a girl, dingus.
She storms off while Elle attempts to tell her that she thought she looked really nice.
Declan is surprised that Bridget has decided to go on a ride with him. She just wants to get out of this hole so Declan promises to take her somewhere that is totally devoid of hole. Bridget takes charge and snatches the keys off of him exclaiming that she is the one who'll be doing the driving. Before you can say ‘No Didge! Don't do it!' the car is zooming out onto the road. Full speed ahead!
Sophie is finishing off her story about Adam dancing whilst on duty. Frazer seems particularly amused by the story. A bored Oliver asks what Riley does with his ‘little self'. Riley replies that he's just started a cadetship at the Erinsborough News. Ollie thinks that he pretty much must be a ‘copy boy' which Riley reluctantly agrees with. Oliver remarks that he once thought about buying a couple of news paper companies but he decided to stick with hotels. Rosie leaves the dinner table, wanting to get some fresh air so Frazer follows her, sensing that she is a little annoyed. Pepper decides to fill her glass up with more wine while asking Sophie to tell another one of her hilarious police stories. Meanwhile, Elle has got a solution to her and Riley's problem, so they leave.
Over in the newly revamped kitchen, Frazer has begun to realize just how hurt Rosie was when he called her ‘cold and calculating'. Frazer says that it was only a throw away joke. He says that she's calculating when she needs to be but never cold. She goes to sit down and explains that his comments about her made her feel like that wasn't loving or maternal enough. He comforts her, the way a husband should, by telling her that she's loving and that's the reason why he wants to have children with her.
FRAZER: Rosie, as well as being absolutely amazing at your job you are warm and loving and loveable. And one day when we're both ready you're going to make the best Mum ever.
Declan and Bridget are raving about the car ride. Declan however, senses that something must be up with Didge for her to do such a crazy thing. She says it's nothing so they both decide to keep the joy ride a secret. Paul stops them both and asks what they're doing. Declan doesn't want to speak to him but Paul insists that he's still concerned about him even though he has broken up with Rebecca. Bridget and Declan walk away. Paul watches them leave and sees Declan look back at him.
The remaining gang are discussing about how it's such a cop cliché that Sophie stops off at the bakery to buy doughnuts whilst on duty. Rosie returns to the table and tells everyone that Frazer has gone to the store to buy some butter. Sophie seems concerned and wonders if Rosie should have gone after him as they don't want to sleep on an argument.
PEPPER: Wow, marriage advice. Tell me Sophie, is there anything you can't do?
Adam is annoyed about Pepper's hostility and sarcasm towards Sophie so asks what it's about. Pepper exclaims that maybe Adam should ask Sophie what it's about! Sophie, avoiding a confrontation decides to leave.
PEPPER: We've run out of doughnuts anyway so, Umm.
Sophie leaves along with Ollie.
ADAM: (To Pep) Have you completely lost your mind?
Elle finishes talking to the senior sergeant after which Riley expresses his concern that Brad won't like the story as it reads too much as a retraction. Elle assures him that it's just a great development on a previous story. Elle pretends to be Brad as Riley puts his story across. It's revealed that he is going to tell Brad that it's common for someone to confess to crimes they didn't commit. The real Brad over hears the conversation and says that it's a page five story at best. Brad comments on Elle's excellent journalism skills and asks her to give Riley some tips.
Adam and Pepper are arguing over whether or not Pepper attacked Sophie in front of everyone. He thinks that she humiliated Sophie and embarrassed herself and he wants to know what it's all about. Pepper thinks that Sophie is ‘totally and utterly' in love with him but Adam assures her that she's only his partner. It's clear that Pepper doesn't believe him. He wants to talk about it in the morning as he can't talk to her like this. He storms off to bed and advises her to drink lots of water. Pepper goes to sit down and claims that she will never drink again. Rosie asks what's wrong and Pepper says that she thinks it's because she doesn't know how to be close to Adam without having sex. It's driving her crazy! She can't tell him that she was bullied by Sophie at school because then he won't want to be Sophie's partner anymore and he'll end up loosing his whole career. Rosie assures her that she's has more much more to offer him than the physical side of things.
The General Store
Harold is just closing up when Rebecca comes in and asks if it's OK if she just gets a few things. She comments that she's so sick of hotel food which shocks Harold as he didn't know her and Paul had broken up. Rebecca says that he's only just managed to see Paul's flaws and now she realizes that he has more flaws than most other people. Harold however, thinks that we're all cut from the same cloth.
REBECCA: Oh, really? What skeletons are lurking in the Harold Bishop closet then?
Harold doesn't quite know how to react so tells her that he'll explain everything when they get to know each other a little bit more. Harold thinks that it's the way we move on from our mistakes and the person someone intends to become that's important. Harold's comment has clearly made Rebecca think about things.
