Angus asking Rachel to move in.
Karl telling Rachel he thought she had more sense when hearing of her plans.
Rachel waving bye to Karl & Susan.
Lucas kissing Libby telling her he'll see her soon.
Toadie telling Dan to stop doing the love sick puppy routine with Libby and to go get her.
A startled Dan wakes up after dreaming of Lucas pashing Libby.
Lib gets a text from Lucas asking if he can pick her up now. Just at that moment some random teacher comes by and Libby feigns to her that she isn't feeling good and that she may need to go home and asks the random teacher to let Helen Carr know that they may need a relief teacher. Lib then leaves to go and text Lucas but before she can do so, Dan appears and kisses her and we're not talking about a quick peck on the cheek either! ohmy.gif However Libby doesn't like what he did and slaps his face before hurriedly leaving!
School playground (and a new side at that!)
Dan catches up with the furious Libby and she makes it clear that he's missed the boat especially after keeping her dangling on. He then spots the waiting Lucas and again tells her that she can't trust him.
LIBBY: Dan, you are too late.
Lib heads to the waiting Lucas and kisses him and from afar Donna is recording their movements on her mobile phone and remarks to Zeke that she'd skive school too if her boyfriend looked like that.
Donna is showing off the footage she took of Libby & Lucas to Didge but Zeke tells her off for doing so. She puts it down to not having anyone to love but Didge tells her that Josh does.
When Didge asks Zeke where Rachel is, he tells the two of them about Rachel moving in with sleazebucket aka Angus. Dan comes along and asks them to pass a message onto Rachel for when she does arrive at school – he wants to see her.
Helen Carr appears and sends the kids off to their classroom before telling Dan he wants a word with him and top of the agenda is Libby Kennedy!
Lucas' plan for Libby was to take her for a lakeside picnic. He enquires as to what Dan wanted but she replies “nothing important” before making it clear talking about a work-colleague is off the agenda. Changing subjects, Libby talks to him about his bike and bites his head off when he encourages her to take a ride on his bike so he turns on the charm and to tell her why they are there – to have a romantic picnic.
Dan arrives for his summons with Helen to hear her good news – she's been offered a job at Western Girls Grammar and wants to recommend him to be the acting head of the senior school. Dan is happy stunned at the news and Helen asks if he can work with Libby on a professional level since he would be her boss.
DAN: I'm not sure I could work with her on any level.
Helen is stunned at this and reminds him of what he'd be turning down and he agrees to think about it and get back to her.
The kids are waiting in the classroom when Dan arrives and he starts to dish out their essays as Rachel arrives late because she'd slept in. Rachel is furious when she gets her essay back because it hasn't been marked and Dan makes it explicitly clear why he hasn't marked it. He has to cut off talking to her because Donna is using her mobile phone (and ignoring an earlier warning to turn it off) and when he takes it off her, can see what she was sending – pictures of Libby & Lucas.
Lucas is tempting Libby with food (a strawberry?) to get her to smile and to get back on the topic of his motorbike. He tries to figure out why she is anti-bikes and eventually Libby tells him about her bike accident with Steph and all that entailed. They soon give up on the conversation though, resuming their normal activity – pashing.
Zeke tries to talk to his sister about their essays and casually asks how her first night with Angus went and if she managed to any studying. Rachel takes exception to this and reminds him that moving in with Angus isn't why her grades are slipping even if Zeke thinks it's a fair comment and his parting shot is that she used to be her own person until Angus came along.
Rachel catches up with Dan to talk about her essay that didn't get marked. She agrees why he didn't mark it and they talk a bit about her current situation before he gives her (and the rest of the class) another shot at re-doing the essay but its to be handed in tomorrow.
Eastside Dingoes Football & Sporting Club
Angus arrives to hand in his CV into the manager for a counter job but instead meets Ty who is filling in. He points out to Angus that school kids make use of the facilities and did he know that? Angus then decides that he doesn't need the job after all and throws the CV in the bin before leaving.
Rachel arrives home to a depressed looking Angus and asks him about how the job at the gym went. He tells her that he didn't go for it and he'll get another one although Rachel does wonder where they'll get money from since her account is empty. The two of them end up having a domestic over her friendship with Ty because Rachel plans on heading to Libby's to do her essay as her laptop battery is flat and there is no electricity at the flat. Eventually he explains that Ty was at the gym and that's why he didn't go for the job but does tell her to go (and get the essay done).
Rachel arrives looking for Libby but Ty explains that she isn't there and offers to let her into the house. She ends up not entering though after he sheepishly doesn't answer her questioning about him not making things easy at the gym for Angus.
RACHEL: Look whether you like it or not, Angus and I are together and if you are really my friend you'll accept that.
Rachel finds a home at #24 to do her essay even telling Didge to lecture her about her screwed up life if she wishes but Didge decides not to do any lecturing, which Didge sincerely thanks her for.
The General Store
Angus tries to buy some provisions but his card is rejected and just as he is about to tell Sienna to put the things back, Paul enters and hands his card over to pay for them. Naturally Angus wants to know who is bailing him out although when he finds out exactly who Paul is and what he owns (the paper) he isn't exactly enthralled. Paul turns on the charm and offers Angus (for a considerable fee) a chance to tell his side of the story.
Paul gets a call from Angus as Toadie and Dan come into the bar. Dan tells him that is the last time he takes his advice but Toadie points out that he told him to go after Libby not publicly pash her.
DAN: Well it was worth a try.
TOADIE: You know for a smart bloke you really are a moron sometimes. (Pause) So where is she now?
DAN: She skipped school with that…
TOADIE: Oh that bloke. No wonder you hate him so much.
Relaxing, Lib remarks to Lucas that she hasn't talked about the bike accident for so long now and thought she'd blocked it out of her mind. Lucas then mentions that he hasn't talked about the accident he was involved in either.
Dan tells Toadie that (Lucas) always wants what he has and adds that he used to ride motorbikes.
TOADIE: You are a man of mystery.
Lucas explains that he's ridden bikes since he was 6. He was good at it too along with his brother and his dad encouraged competition between the bothers, which he used to measure himself against.
LUCAS: I just didn't know how much he hated me.
Dan recalls the time that he caught is brother with his first girlfriend the night before their first race against each other.
DAN: And how's this – the minute I caught them he just lost interest in her. He was just using her to get to at me and the next day we had to race each other.
Lucas continues by adding that by the time they got to the final lap there was just the two of them left and it was neck and neck and the brother wouldn't let him pass. They went into a corner and he had a chance to get through.
LIBBY: What happened?
LUCAS: He swerved into me… not to stop me passing… to knock me off. My bike hit the ripple, I came off, flipped a couple of times. That's all I remember.
LIBBY: You could have been killed. How does he live with himself?
LUCAS: I don't know… denial.
LIBBY: Do you still see him?
LUCAS: Yes sometimes.
LIBBY: You know what; I am a firm believer in everybody having their day. Your day will come.
LUCAS: (leaning in to pash Libby) It already has.
“That's why he is here, do to it again,” Dan tells Toadie but Toadie wonders how he knows he'll still be as obsessive.
DAN: It's my brother.
The penny drops and Toadie knows who Libby is off with.
MVO: 6.30 tomorrow Libby will discover that the man she thinks is the perfect catch isn't so perfect after all.
TOADIE: (to Dan) Tell me, is Libby in danger?
MVO: This is the episode of Neighbours that you don't want to miss. 6.30 tomorrow.
