Recap
Rebecca telling Matt that she wants to study law.
Nicola bringing the Parkers a cake, and offering to make them tea; Steve declining.
Didge telling Declan that she's ready to sleep with him.
Number 26
Didge and Declan are making out on the couch, and Didge tells Declan that she doesn't want to be like Riley – always running away because she's afraid of feeling things. She tells Declan she missed him because she loves him so much – oh, and they have the house to themselves. Declan is quite gobsmacked, and asks Bridget if she has any contraception, except he asks her in that Neighbours way which goes: “do you have any?”
Anyway, it doesn't matter, because Declan ‘has some' at home, and he's going to get it. Right now.
Bridget sits back on the couch looking anything but ready.
The Footie Game
It's the final (but not the Grand Final) and Steve is stressed because Declan hasn't arrived. Fitzy offers to play, but Steve wants him to protect his shoulder should they get into the Grand Final. Steve looks around in panic and spies...Zeke.
Cut straight to later where Zeke is walking out of the building in a footie outfit, looking a little lankier than the other footie guys.
STEVE: You were born to wear it.
ZEKE: I was born to calculate pi to the nth degree.
Steve tells Zeke he's in a forward position, and if he keeps his eye on the ball it will all be fine. Zeke repeats that it will all, be, fine. Yes indeedy.
Rebecca cheers the boys on, and Miranda assures Donna that Rebecca will have lost her voice by half time.
Nurse Jodie Smith is also there, cheering on Anson's Corner. Looks like she's as bogan as Rebecca when it comes to watching – or screaming at – the footie.
JODIE: Come on Anson's Corner, YOU CAN DO IT!!
Rebecca is rather indignant that another woman is yelling from the sidelines, and not for her team.
REBECCA: Ew. Here we go. COME ON ERINSBOROUGH!!!
JODIE: GO THE BULL ANTS!!
REBECCA: COME ON THE DINGOOEEEEES!!
JODIE: (To Bec) You haven't got a hope in hell. Your forwards are gutless and your ruck's a girl.
REBECCA: ...
DONNA: COME ON, RINGO! GRIND NUMBER 16 INTO THE GROUND!
JODIE: That's my brother...HE GETS YOU INTO TROUBLE BRAYDON, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO!
REBECCA: (Annoyed and very serious) KILL HIM.
Rebecca will not be outdone. No, siree.
Number 26
Declan returns, and apologises for being late, but he ran into Carmella. It's all awkward for a bit. And then Declan picks up Bridget and carries her into the bedroom.
Number 30
Toadie asks Nicola why she's sick, and she tells him she had a needlestick injury at work; she won't know for a couple of weeks about whether or not she's HIV positive. Toadie is shocked, and Nicola says she'd understand if Toadie didn't want her staying here. Toadie refutes that – if she's not a risk to Callum then he's not worried.
Nicola is touched that everyone has been so great, and Toadie reassures her that if she needs anything, he's there for her.
Number 26
Didge and Declan are laying on the couch, Didge clothed, Declan without a top. Seriously, you're not worried that your parents are about to walk in??! Why do teenage kids always make it so obvious by getting half naked in the lounge?! Declan thinks that Bridget is really quiet, and she admits that she expected to feel different.
DECLAN: We were nervous, I'm sure we'll get better at it.
DIDGE: No, not that. I just expected to feel differently, and I don't.
DECLAN: You're not having second thoughts, are you?
DIDGE: No. No way, are you?
DECLAN: No, no way.
Didge tells him he can catch the last half of the footie if he wants, but he says he's not going anywhere...ever! They snuggle up, but Bridget still doesn't look very happy.
The Footie Field
The game is in full swing, and it's Anson's Corner 36, Erinsborough 26. Steve and Dan are frustrated at the game, and Rebecca has started yelling again. Toadie and Nicola arrive with Callum. The game really isn't looking good, and Zeke gets smashed, but manages to get up again.
Jodie spies Nicola and then starts talking to her friend about her.
REBECCA: Too high up, too high.
JODIE: It's a physical contact game. You lot should know about that.
TOADIE: Oh, boo to you!
Miranda approaches Jodie, and defends Nicola, telling Jodie that if she's got something to say, she should say it – or keep her head in.
Number 26
Declan and Didge hear Lou outside with Mickey and run to the bedroom. Unfortunately, Mickey sees them. Bridget tries to explain to Mickey that he can't tell anyone Declan was here, as they'll be angry that he missed the football.
MICKEY: How much?
DIDGE: What?
MICKEY: How much not to tell?
DIDGE: I'm not going to pay you, Mickey.
MICKEY: Then I'll tell.
DIDGE: No! Mickey! That's blackmail. That's very, very naughty.
The Dingoes' Den
Steve encourages the guys at half time with a pep talk. Rebecca has oranges. They cheer the team on, and Zeke asks Rebecca to get Karl here, because he might need medical assistance later.
REBECCA: Oh, rubbish, you're my hero. Come here.
She gives him a big wet kiss.
Steve and Miranda are pleased to see Mickey, who's back with Lou from Perth.
The Footie Game
Back to the game where it's 75 all, and Rebecca and Jodie are still hurling insults and each other, and words to the players. Jodie's brother Braydon knocks Zeke down.
REBECCA: Your brother is such a thug!
JODIE: Well at least he showed up!
Zeke gets a free kick, and Ty reassures him that there's no pressure. But then the siren goes to indicate the end of the game, so now it's all to play for.
TY: Okay, so now maybe there's a bit of pressure.
Zeke takes his time, with people calling out from the stands. He kicks aaaaannnnnddd.....GOAL! Or whatever they call it in Australia.
The crowd go crazy!
REBECCA: Oh! Goodness me! Bad luck, Braydon.
JODIE: Oh! Oh, blow it out ya bum.
REBECCA: Oh! EXCUSE me?!
JODIE: Yeah. You HEARD me.
REBECCA: (pointing at Callum) There are children present, missy.
CALLUM: Blow it out your bum.
REBECCA: (horrified) You see what you've done there?
JODIE: I couldn't care less.
REBECCA: Oh my goodness. You clearly have NO standards.
JODIE: Standards? I'm not the one hanging out with family girl over there.
MIRANDA: Hey.
NICOLA: Hey.
REBECCA: Right. That's it.
Rebecca approaches Jodie and lays into her. Jodie gives as good as she gets, and it takes Matt the policeman to break it up.
MATT: You'll do anything to get arrested by me, won't you?
Matt sees Donna in the crowd, and she legs it.
Charlie's
The team return with Zeke, and Dan and Lucas pay each other non-compliments about their own caring, sharing natures. Declan turns up, and tells Steve he had to work something out with Bridget. Miranda seems to take the story for what it is, despite Declan acting rather suspicious, and she invites him to dinner.
RINGO: Your mum had to be dragged off some lady by the cops.
REBECCA: (laughing it off) Oh, no...pfff...I was provoked.
Mickey tells them he saw Didge and Declan earlier, but no more. Rebecca offers to give Declan an apple pie to take to the Parkers, and when Ringo and Declan go to get a drink, Rebecca and Miranda share a look.
Ringo and Declan sit with Donna, but Matt comes in. Donna tells Ringo to kiss her, which he does, and Matt comes over, pulling Ringo off her.
MATT: Calm down.
RINGO: Who do you think you are?
MATT: I'm Donna's dad. Who are you?
Oops.
Cut to moments later and Matt is telling his daughter that he wants to talk to her later. Donna leaves, and Rebecca approaches Matt, telling him that she's not an aggressive person.
MATT: Well, I'm afraid to say that she's taken out a restraining order.
REBECCA: Oh. (thinks) Oh! Oh, that's a joke! That's a police joke!
Rebecca giggles as if it's the funniest thing she's ever heard, all coy and flirty.
Steve brings drinks over to Randa, Mickey and Lou. Miranda asks Mick what he wants for dinner – his choice. Seriously, when will everyone stop pandering to this annoying kid?? Mickey wants ice cream, so Lou tells him it has to have three veggies.
Mickey goes over to Declan, and asks for ten dollars, which Declan finally gives into. Grrrrr.
Callum runs from the bar to a table with Toadie and Nicola, and says that people at the bar said Nicola was sick. Toadie tells Callum not to believe them, but Nicola suggests that she and Callum go grab a pizza, and she'll tell him about it on the way.
Number 30
Nicola explains why she's taking medication, and how it makes her sick. Callum asks her if she's worried, and she says no. She tells him he's an amazing young man, and they share a hug. Dan comes home, and Callum runs off, telling Fitzy he has a big surprise. He comes back with Bob and forces Dan to smell him. Dan does, and has no allergic reaction.
Callum then throws Bob's blanket at Dan, who immediately sneezes because it has down feathers in it. Dan runs off.
Callum and Nicola high five!
Number 26
The Parkers are cooking dinner, and Didge is a little distracted. There's a knock at the door, and Bridget runs to answer it, throwing herself at Declan who's arrived with apple pie. Dec's worried that everyone's going to guess, and her kissing him isn't going to help. Mickey sees them kissing, and Declan tells Bridget about the ten bucks he gave him earlier.
In the kitchen, Miranda asks everyone to sit down, and thanks Declan for the pie.
Didge and Declan play footie under the table, but Steve comes over, demanding to know what Declan has been playing at.
DEC: What?
STEVE: We rely on you, mate, and you let us down. Missing your own game like that.
Declan apologises. Steve wants to know where he is.
Charlie's
Matt and Rebecca are talking about Donna, and Rebecca thinks she's lots of fun. Rebecca comments that Matt and Donna looking nothing alike, and Matt agrees that she takes after her mother. He checks his watch – it's one hour since he told Donna he wanted to see her, so off he goes.
Across the car, Ringo and Donna are talking when Matt comes over to chat. Ringo leaves to play pool with Zeke, who wants to know what's going on with Donna.
At the table, Matt tells Donna that her mum wants her to go and visit. Donna is pleased that she hasn't seen her mother in ages, and when her father goes to the bathroom, she takes his keys – and Ringo – and runs out the bar.
Car Park
In the car park, Donna unlocks her dad's car and gets in with Ringo, switching the radio on. She switches on the engine and Ringo realises it's a cop car. She hits the accelerator, and the car shrieks out the car park...
