Ringo and Ashley toasting each other, for having a good time.
Ringo trying to make friends with Declan again.
Zeke telling Ringo they're not friends – he just wants Karl and Susan off his back.
Susan demanding that Ringo come home; Ringo putting the phone down on her.
Ringo pashing Ashley – and her father, Nathan, storming out the house to separate them.
Nathan Black's House
Outside, Nathan pushes Ringo away from his property, and tells him to keep away from his daughter.
Charlie's
Rebecca asks Lucas how Libby and Dan are, and Lucas tells her that Libby's avoiding the issue. Declan doesn't blame her – he doesn't know how he'd feel if anything happened to his baby. Rebecca thinks that's a really beautiful thing to say! Ringo comes in to chat to Declan, but Dec's not interested. Ringo tells his ‘mate' what happened, but Dec reiterates that he's busy and ignores him.
Ramsay Street
A Hazmat van pulls up, ominously. Men in yellow suits jump out with Geiger Counters and a loudspeaker and yell at the residents of number 32 to leave the house. Bec, Declan, Steph and Charlie come out the house and demand to know what's going on; they are told that it's being quarantined due to unsafe radiation.
Steph flips out, but Becca realises that something's not right...and Callum pokes his head up from the garden, laughing and laughing. Toadie, Ty and Steve take the hoods off their yellow suits, and Steph realises that she's been well and truly had.
Number 30
Libby and Dan come into the lounge to chat with Ben. They sit him on the sofa and tell him that they need to talk to him about Grace.
LIBBY: Your baby sister won't be coming home.
BEN: Where's she gonna live?
DAN: Mate, when your mum was sick, Grace was sick, too. She didn't make it, Ben.
BEN: Because of me?
LIBBY: What? Why would you say that?
BEN: Because I wanted a brother instead.
LIBBY: Sweetheart...no...this has absolutely nothing to do with you, okay? This was not your fault.
Ben wonders if his mum's okay, and she replies that she is. Ben and Libby share a big hug, and Lib promises her son that everything will be alright. Ben rushes off – he has to go to band practice.
Number 26
Over at the Parkers', Ben, Callum, Charlie and Mickey are playing a song REALLY badly. So badly that I want to scream at the television. Ty tries to get them to play less loudly, and Callum is going on and on and on about the prank he pulled earlier that morning.
Ty reminds them that they need to focus a little more if they want to play in the Easter concert. He suggests they take a break.
Ty leaves to answer his phone, when Ben has an idea – they all do. They want to do something to Ty's song book as an April Fools day prank. Cal and Mickey keep watch as Ben glues the pages of the book together; he thinks it's the best prank, like, ever.
Ty returns and tries to open his book so they can start rehearsing again, but the book won't open. The kids delightedly tell him it was an April Fools joke, and Cal suggests suggests that it doesn't matter, because surely Ty has back ups on his computer...right?? Wrong. He doesn't. Ty is furious, and the kids tell him it was Ben's idea.
Charlie's
Steve and Toadie delight in the April Fools prank they managed to pull off, when Toadie gets a phonecall from the Australian tax office. They have selected his business for a full tax audit and want to start tomorrow. Toadie is horrified – until he realises that it's Declan on the phone in the back office, with Rebecca and Steph listening in!
Harold's Store
Ringo sits alone having coffee when Ashley comes in, all sweetness and light, wanting to see her new boyfriend. Ringo reminds her that her dad could finish his career, so it's over, whether she likes it or not. Ashley doesn't want to take no for an answer, so makes it clear that if Ringo turns her down, she will tell her dad that he pushed her into a relationship.
Ringo says he won't be blackmailed, but Ashley is going ahead anyway. She strops off, stroppily.
Number 28
Ringo admits to Susan that he's stuffed up, and she tells him that he doesn't need to be someone else to be liked. She reminds him that having a new career doesn't mean that he has to leave his old life behind.
RINGO: I'm sorry about the whole pretending the phone was cutting out, too.
SUSAN: Yeah, well...I do that to Karl all the time, but don't you ever try it again, okay?
Zeke comes home, and Susan announces that she's off to an interview about the exchange student. Ringo wonders what exchange student Susan's talking about, and Zeke tells him that if he were here more often, he'd know. Zeke accuses Ringo of choosing footie over his mates, and makes it clear that he's not interested in being friends anymore.
Number 30
Over at Toadie's, Lib and Dan are apologising to Ty for his song book incident. Ty makes it clear that he doesn't care about the book itself, it's the songs that matter. Dan tells Ty that they told Ben about Grace today, so he may be a bit upset and that's what caused him to behave badly.
Ty leaves, and Dan apologises again. Ben comes home and Libby and Daniel tell him that he's in trouble. They explain that being upset doesn't make this sort of thing okay. Ben explains: he wanted his mum to laugh because she's been so sad, and he thought a prank would work. Libby forgets being angry at him (and so he gets off scot-free), and gives him a cuddle.
Charlie's
Steve is at a table having a drink. Cass comes in.
CASS: Hey, Stevie! Mind if I join you?
STEVE: Is this some kind of April Fools gag, or...
CASS: What?
STEVE: You sitting here with me.
CASS: Oh, no. I'm not hitting on you. Trust me, there's just nowhere else to sit.
Steve apologises, and explains that he's expecting payback for a prank he played earlier. Rebecca, Steph and Declan are still trying to work out a way to get back at Toadie, and Lucas joins them. He gives them some advice: hit Toadie where it hurts. And then Declan has it: Toad didn't pay for breakfast this morning because he's a cheapskate...
A plan is forming!
Number 30
Libby sits alone on the sofa. Dan joins her, and she admits she realises that they're never going to have another baby. Dan agrees that he doesn't know how they go about accepting that, other than sticking together, just him and her. They share a hug and Libby cries.
Ramsay Street
In the front garden of number 28, Susan and Ben are doing some gardening next to the arbour. Ben explains that he wanted to plant a cactus, and Susan reminds him that this is a special thing for his mum, so they couldn't get a cactus this time!
Dan brings Lib around to the garden. He and Ben chose a rose plant for the garden – they're calling it the Grace Rose. Susan asks her daughter if she wants to plant it. They all help to plant it, and share a family hug.
Charlie's
Libby hands Ty a new song book, and tells him that the kids chipped in their pocket money. Ben has more – Lib managed to separate the pages and copied and traced the original songs from it. They managed to salvage almost everything.
Across the bar, Rebecca scurries in, and she's been to the joke shop. She shows Declan and Steph what she bought – some face lottery scratchie tickets. Steph reminds her that Toadie had better hurry in as April Fools is officially over in half an hour...
Declan says that Toadie will be in as he called him to ask him to come and pay for his breakfast from that morning. Rebecca points out that they have to remember to give Toadie ticket number 1 – that's very important. Ticket NUMBER ONE!
Rebecca is flicking through the scratchies when Cass comes up and wants to buy one. Rebecca says they're not for sale, but Cass persists. With nothing to lose, Rebecca allows her to buy two (making sure that she keeps ticket number one separately).
Cut to moments later and Toadie is purchasing two scratchie tickets, and Rebecca is looking very pleased with herself. Susan, Zeke, Ben, Lib and Dan come in for a meal, and invite Ringo to join them in their family lunch...but Ringo spies Nathan coming into the bar and decides to leave, pronto. But...too late! He's been seen, and Nathan announces that Ringo has been pressurising Ashley, and he's so not happy about it; Ringo can kiss his career goodbye.
Declan and Zeke get involved – Ringo would never behave like that over a girl. Ashley's the one who's been hassling him – Ringo told them all about it. Susan tells Ashley she's happy to go to the police who will get to the truth, so she might as well tell the truth here. Under Susan's hard stare, Ashley mutters something about football always coming first and walks out, her dad following her.
Ringo thanks Dec and Zeke, but they leave his side as quickly as they joined it.
Cut to moments later where Bec, Steph and Dec are watching Toadie scratch his scratchie tickets, waiting for the moment of freak out when he thinks he's won $20,000. Watching over his shoulder – neither ticket has any winning numbers on it...
Rebecca snatches it, and shouts that she doesn't understand! The winning ticket was number 1! Toadie realises it was a prank and finds it hilarious that it failed! Steph finds the piece of paper that came with the tickets and tells Rebecca that it wasn't ticket number 1 that was the winner, it was ticket number 7. Rebecca is gutted – she feels like an idiot. She hunts for ticket number 7, and can't find it, until a moment of horror comes upon her...
Cass.
Ramsay Street
Rebecca and Steph arrive to find Cass with a large van. It's delivering a huge plasma screen, and she has bags of shopping from boutiques in her car, too. She's dead excited.
CASS: What's with the faces?
REBECCA: It was a joke ticket. It was an April Fools day gag meant for Toadie.
Steph nods in agreement.
CASS: What, you set me up?
REBECCA: No! No, the prank was meant for Toadie.
CASS: I'm a single mother! With three kids! And now I'm maxed to the eyeballs! Enjoy your joke while you can. Because you're going to pay for this one way or the other.
