Recap

- Rebecca appalled over Paul's ‘I'll give you $ if I cheat' contract
- Elle telling Rebecca it's Paul's weird way of showing love
- Declan suggesting a baby shower/engagement party combo
- Didge freaking out when Donna put a veil on her head
Charlie's Bar
Miranda and Steve pack up the presents while Rebecca leaves a worried message on Declan's voicemail. But Declan makes a quick appearance to grab his car keys and then leave in an angry huff. Steve is about to go after him when Paul offers to do the honours.
Lassiter's Carpark
Paul tries to reassure Declan that Didge is just young and scared and that he should give her some leeway, but Declan isn't up for taking his advice.
PAUL: I'm learning the value of patience and maybe it'll help you too.
DECLAN: Go to hell, Paul.
He jumps in his car and drives off.
Number 22
Lucas is doing the ‘type slowly with two fingers' thing while Googling for different banks, which irritates Elle to no end. She tricks him into thinking he's got a spider down his shirt and does the search herself while he crazily strips off the in the background. The plan works - she immediately finds Metwealth Bank, whose logo matches the one on the key.
Charlie's Bar
Rebecca leaves another worried message on Declan's phone then thanks Paul for trying to talk some sense into her son. Spying the contract under his arm, she snatches it away and is stunned to learn that Paul's upped the payout to a million dollars. Paul says the amount doesn't matter because he's never going to cheat on her again. Rebecca rips up the contract - she believes him. Silly woman.
Number 22
Donna tries to tempt Didge into a smile with triple chocolate surprise mousse cake, but she only caves when Donna does the ‘here comes the aeroplane' trick. Donna doesn't get why Didge is so anti-marriage, but Didge doesn't dig the whole “patriarchal, women as possessions thing”. She never wanted to get married, she aimed to be a vet then a doctor. That's it. Donna's gobsmacked and comes up with a plan to change her mind.
Number 28
Donna hassles Sunny to come and play cupid with her, but Sunny is quite frosty because of the whole Donna kissing Zeke thing (not that she cares of course). But when Donna explains that they were just rehearsing for the play and there's no chemistry between them, Sunny sunbeams a smile and agrees to Donna's scheme (but, like, she's so totally not into Zeke or anything).
Bridal Boutique
Donna and Sunny have dragged Didge into her own personal hell.
DONNA: I used to love these shops! I would spend whole days in here when I was a kid. But it doesn't matter that I'm never going to get married because you are, and you can be like my avatar in Second Life.
DIDGE: If I'm going to be your avatar couldn't you have at least given me some weapons? A force-field or something?
Didge starts to leave but the girls persuade her to try on a few dresses. Sunny sighs that at least Didge's marriage isn't arranged. The girls are stunned, but Sunny quickly says she meant people in India - duh. The shop lady asks them if they need help and Donna lies and says the wedding dress is for her (wanting to cover for Didge in case she was embarrassed about her pregnancy). But Didge isn't ashamed - just annoyed - and wants to leave. Donna manages to convince her to stay and “release that inner-bride”.
Bridal Boutique
Donna and Sunny emerge from the changing rooms decked out in wedding gowns and admire themselves in the mirror. Didge takes a bit of convincing to join them, and with due cause. The poor thing looks like the wedding cake with all the trills and frills on her frock.
SUNNY: You look... Really angry and uncomfortable.
Didge says she feels it. They're never going to find anything that fits.
Number 26
Ringo and Zeke are waiting to talk with Declan after he gets home from a jog. Zeke figured he was either at the gym or out Woop Woop (“We were this close to going to that wombat's grave”). Ringo notices Declan limping and he admits he kicked his car.
Bridal Boutique
Sunny dreamily looks at herself in the mirror while Donna exclaims that they should do this every weekend. The girls then realise Sunny's on another planet and cheekily wonder who she's thinking about. Sunny protests that it's no one: who would be interested in her?
Number 26
Zeke and Ringo tell Declan he's lucky he's even got a girlfriend - even if she is acting a bit psycho at the moment.
DECLAN: You guys are really sad.
ZEKE: I guess that's why we share a bedroom.
Awkward pause. Declan says he could always talk to Sunny. Zeke glares.
Bridal Boutique
Sunny and Donna think Didge is being slightly whingey, but Didge is like, “Hello! 7 months pregnant here!” The kindly shop lady approaches and apologises for eavesdropping, but couldn't help hearing Didge's plight and confesses that she was in the same boat at her wedding. She thinks she'll be able to find something perfect for Didge.
Number 26
Declan knew Didge was freaked out by the whole wedding thing but kind of thought she'd just come around to the idea.
ZEKE: Why is it such a big deal?
DECLAN: I don't know.
ZEKE: Well if you don't know then how is she meant to know?
Charlie's Bar
Paul shows Rebecca some property fliers of expensive houses and asks where she'd prefer to live, but Rebecca tells him that he doesn't have to buy her a house to show his commitment. She just wants him.
Metwealth Bank
Elle is trying to gain access to the safety deposit boxes but is having no luck with the stroppy bank teller (Adrian). When Lucas walks in, however, Adrian takes a shine to him so Elle pretends Lucas is her brother. Drooling, Adrian gives them the password (Elle should teach him the pretend spider trick).
Bridal Boutique
Didge has a lovely new dress on, which fits her like a glove (who's having a baby glove). She looks in the mirror and admits she feels beautiful. Donna takes some snaps of her on her phone and brags about how gorgeous she‘ll be standing next to Declan at the altar. Breaking into a smile, Didge says she'll take it.
Metwealth Bank
They're in an actual bank, which is very impressive. Well done location scouts. Adrian takes them into a special room out the back and leaves them alone to open the box (giving Lucas a little wave before he goes). Elle opens the box and discovers the will of Helen Daniels. Their curiosity is piqued even more.
Harold's Store
Donna and Sunny are drinking milkshakes when Donna notices Sunny give Zeke a coy look (who is at the counter with Ringo). Donna gets a knowing smirk on her face and waits till the boys leave to be all, “OMG YOU LIKE ZEKE! WEEEE!” Sunny protests and Donna asks if it's her first crush, but Sunny admits that she liked someone back home. It didn't end so well.
DONNA: What happened?
SUNNY: Well he had a bet on with his friends. They called it a “dog fight” or something?
DONNA: Oh...
SUNNY: And I tried to kiss him and he won.
DONNA: (appalled) How could anyone do that to you?
SUNNY: It wouldn't have happened to my sister.
Feeling vulnerable, Sunny forces a smile and changes the subject so Donna won't ask anymore questions.
Number 26
Didge shows her mum and dad the photos of her in the wedding dress. They say she's beautiful but wonder if she's having anymore second thoughts - they just want her to be happy. Didge says this is what she wants. Smiling, Miranda says they should go shoe shopping and Steve writes her out a cheque for the dress deposit (did he enter a love contract with Paul too? Where is this money coming from?). The Parkers wax lyrical about their own wedding day before Steve heads out. Didge asks her mum if she ever thought she'd get a divorce, but Miranda says that Didge and Declan are completely different.
Number 26
Didge is looking at a photo of her parents in happier times when Declan finds her.
DECLAN: I think I've been a jerk.
DIDGE: That's better than a psycho. That's what I've been.
DECLAN: You're not a psycho... OK, maybe you are a psycho, but you're my psycho.
Declan tells her that the reason he's so eager to get married is because he didn't have a dad growing up and just wanted to show Tadpole that it had two parents that loved it. Didge understands but reminds him that marriage didn't help her parents in the end. Declan says they'll try to make things work. Relenting, Didge replies that they'll get married if he wants it so much, but is deflated when he says no.
DECLAN: We'll compromise. Maybe after Tadpole's born and everything calms down, OK?
DIDGE: Declan...
DECLAN: No, that's compromise Didge. And we're going to have to do plenty of that from now on.
He gives her a kiss on the head and walks out leaving her quite despondent.
