Miranda admits to Ned that she can't bear to look at Libby knowing the truth about Darren.
Rachel asks Angus if they can go on a proper date together, but he points out that it's too risky.
Carmella is delighted at being able to hold Chloe in her arms at last. The others watch on.
Karl is on the phone to Susan telling her of Carmella's joy at meeting her daughter. He likens his day to his first day of medicine. Susan isn't having such a good day with Libby still about, determined to look after her mother. Karl however is called away to an emergency.
A gentleman has been rushed in suffering from renal failure after a kidney transplant a few months back. As Karl organises a room for him, the camera pans back and we see that it is Declan and Oliver's dad, Richard.
As Oliver is taking a photo of Carmella holding Chloe, Frazer and Ringo arrive. Ringo is shocked and amazed by Chloe, and joins everyone in just staring at the newborn. Frazer teases Oliver for his efforts, but Oliver would rather commend Carmella for what she went through. Sadly the doctor arrives and it's time for Chloe to return to the incubator. Carmella can't bear to be parted from her daughter.
Karl comes to see Richard, but he already knows that his body is rejecting the donor kidneys and that his only option left now is dialysis, as he is unable to qualify for a second donor. Karl asks for him to give him a chance to be the doctor. Richard knows that he hasn't got left, and thanks Karl as a doctor for being able to give him the extra lease of life. He realises though that he will soon die. Karl admires his bravery and informs him they'll up the pain relief medication. He asks if there is anyone he'd like them to contact, but Richard informs him there is no one.
Rebecca and Declan arrive to find Rosie, Frazer, Ringo, Oliver, Valda, Toadie and Steph already in Carmella's room. It's just a little overcrowded! Rebecca has come to visit the new mum and gives her a hug. A rather flustered and concerned Rosie, suggests they clear out to give Carmella some space. Frazer invites them all to a party at their place for a barbeque lunch, in honour of Chloe. Carmella thanks them all on her and Chloe's behalf and asks that they have a good time for them.
As they head out, Rosie sits down on a chair outside. Frazer asks if he should call the barbie off, but it's not that. Rosie admits that she's just struggling with the sudden change in emotion, from being all concerned about Chloe the day before to being overly happy that morning. Frazer informs her it's okay to cry, but Rosie gets up and walks off asking for a moment alone.
Mickey and Didge have finished helping to feed the animals but Mickey wants to stay a bit longer. Janae takes the opportunity to ask Ned if Miranda is okay, as she's been ignoring her. Ned reckons it's probably the house issue, but eventually admits that she doesn't like keeping secrets from Libby.
Out in reception, Miranda is not impressed to realise that Steve hasn't been keeping on top of the business accounts. Steve can't see the big deal; some clients take longer to pay than others. Miranda was counting on it to secure the house deal; she was hoping to use the business account to prove to the bank that they can take out another loan.
As Rosie watches over Chloe from the corridor window, the doctor suggests she goes in. Dr. Olenski explains that like coma patients, premature babies benefit from being spoken to by those that love them. Rosie eventually finds the courage to go in. Leaning over the cot, she starts telling Chloe how strong Carmella has been through it; slowly shedding a tear.
Frazer arrives and stands by the door. He watches on as Rosie tells Chloe that she doesn't think she could ever go through pregnancy like Carmella; it scares her too much.
Garden of Number 30
As the party gets underway, Valda asks Daniel while he's still single. Toadie jokes that he and Steph could date, but Valda reminds him that they're engaged.
Bridget is confident that her parents will get the loan. Steve too reckons the practice is going well, it's just not written down on paper yet! Libby, Ben and Rachel arrive, but Rachel doesn't want to talk to Didge, so goes to find Rosie. Didge also makes her escape.
Ben runs off to meet Mickey. Libby follows him, and starts to make conversation with Ned and Janae, but the mention of Darren makes it awkward.
Karl asks the nurse to up Richard's pain medication, but Richard would rather it went to someone who deserves it more. Karl asks him to let him be the doctor, which causes Richard to reveal he is a teacher. Karl tells him of Susan and how she misses the classroom too because of her illness. Richard admits that nurturing young minds is very rewarding. Karl wonders if there is someone at school who he could contact for him; but Richard reminds him that he wants to do this alone.
Garden of Number 30
Steph teases Libby about the fact that Darren has gone back to Shep on his own. She admits that she doesn't want her friend to go. Libby admits that it's hard with Susan suffering in the heat and Karl back at work, but Steph promises to help out.
Declan comments to Didge that Josh isn't at the party, so she points out that they only had short notice and she didn't have time to invite him. Declan makes a quick escape, back to the barbie.
Daniel, who is randomly sitting with Didge and Rachel at the table, comments that school will be starting back soon. Rachel doesn't look so pleased; and becomes even less so, when Fitzy reveals that Angus is planning to return to a permanent position.
Frazer calls Fitzy over to 'man' the barbeque, much to Steph's disgust.
Didge takes the opportunity to ask Rachel what she and Angus will do now, but doesn't get a reply as Rachel has scarped.
Mickey and Ben have brought a huge plate of food over for Susan from the barbeque. She jokes that she'll need a shovel to get through everything they've brought. Mickey mentions that he hates it when he's ill and has to miss out on things, which leads Susan to mention that she was able to open the jar that morning. Ben reckons it's good sign; she must be getting better.
Ben suggests that they watch a film with her favourite actor, Cary Grant in. Susan thinks the gesture is sweet, but they'll end up missing the rest of the party. Mickey doesn't mind, but the boys perk up when Susan suggests they share the food between them.
Ned watches Libby and Steph joke about. He admits to Miranda that he doesn't like lying either but he doesn't want to hurt Libby just to clear his own conscience.
Oliver arrives, and Toadie suggests they start the speech. Oliver asks Rosie to make one instead. Gathering everyone's attention, she thanks them for coming. She admits it's been a big learning curve for herself, watching her sister go through the birth. She realises it's at a time like this when friends are important; especially as she can't see herself starting a family.
Frazer joins her and raises his beer 'to Chloe'.
The ladies have ended up doing the clearing while the men have relocated to the lounge. Miranda admits that she quite likes it, even if it is old fashioned. Talking with Janae, Libby admits she doesn't really want to break up Ben and Mickey's friendship, but she feels it's important for her to return with Darren to Shepparton. Janae heads back outside.
Frazer bumps into Rosie and tries to talk to her about what happened before at the hospital but doesn't get a chance as Fitzy arrives commenting on the house. He admits he's looking for a new place to rent, and Rosie points out that they do have a spare room since Pepper left. Frazer tells him they'll have a chat and get back to him, for which Fitzy is grateful. With Fitzy heading into the lounge, Frazer tries to talk to Rosie again, but it's too late as she's slipped back to the kitchen.
Fitzy and Frazer head back through and Steve asks Fitzy how the footie season is shaping up. He reveals that he's slowly pulling a team together, and Steph suggests that Toadie should join as a fullback. Didge would rather not talk about the footie, but Steve reckons she'll be back playing pretty soon. Fitzy tells her that he already has her picked for the dingoes, and she can join them fully in a few months time when her fitness is back.
Sadly, he has to head off. He reveals he's going to Angus' place to pick up lesson plans. Realising that that is probably where Rachel is, Didge jumps and asks Fitzy to give her some training ideas to get her fitness back, but Steve suggests that she pesters him another time for them.
Libby wanders in announcing that the dishes are done, which is a shame, as Toadie was just about to go and help! Janae appears looking for Ned, Steph takes the opportunity to invite her and Ned for dinner at their place, with several others, including Libby and Darren.
Didge is trying to get hold of Rachel to warn her that Fitzy is on his way over to Angus'. Declan follows her out and asks to talk, but Didge heads down the street, ignoring him.
Hospital - Erinsborough Hospital
Karl brings Richard some magazines to read. He apologises for snapping at him earlier, but feels that life makes some decisions for them, including when to leave the world. Karl respects his decision, but is still keen to make contact with someone for him.
Out at the nurse's station, Karl reaches for the donor book, and tries to find out who donated Richard a kidney. Rebecca and Oliver head past to go see Carmella again. Before Karl has a chance to link the two of them with Richard, the nurse calls him away to an emergency.
Angus explains to Rachel that going back to Erinsborough High is a great job opportunity for him, especially as it will be his first proper job. Rachel is too worried that they won't be able to date anymore. He suggests they have the meal that he's cooked for her, but she's not really hungry.
Turns out lunch, wasn't the only surprise; he's also giving her his leather bracelet, the one she likes so much. Her phone rings, it's Bridget, for the fifth time. Like all the other times she hangs up. Setting her phone to silent, she returns to Angus, and he puts the bracelet on her. She comments that it's like a little piece of him going with her, wherever she goes.
With lunch over, the subject returns to teaching. Rachel can't work out how she's going to see him every day and not be able to do anything. Angus reckons they'll just have to get used to it, and suggests they don't kiss as it will make it worse. Besides, they've just been sprung with a knock at the door.
