- Steph walking out on Toadie after reading his screenplay
- Ringo trying to get back in Donna's good books
- Donna kissing Kyle to prove a point to Sunny
- Ringo daring Sunny and Zeke to pash in the cupboard
- Sunny and Zeke having a squashy, awkward time in there
Sunny and Zeke are still smushed together in the cupboard with only Zeke's mobile phone for light. Sunny complains about truth or dare but Zeke assures her spin the bottle is worse - he had to kiss Declan once.
ZEKE: A kiss isn't that much of a big deal.
SUNNY: (muttering) Maybe not to you.
Backtracking, Zeke says he didn't mean with her, but Sunny goes on the offensive and asks if she's not pretty or blonde enough for him. Zeke gives up and falls silent.
Outside The Broom Cupboard
The teens are hovering near the door, straining to hear something. Didge wants to let them out, but Ringo cheekily reminds her it hasn't been 10 minutes yet.
Sunny tells Zeke off for letting the light go out but it‘s because the battery is on low. Fed up, Sunny grumpily pushes past him as best she can and tries to get out - but the door is locked. They bash on the door and ask to be let out, but Ringo doesn't comply. They're stuck.
Outside The Broom Cupboard
Donna unhappily claims that Ringo's just punishing Sunny because she stuck up for her earlier. Ringo retorts that he wasn't the one putting on public pashfests, and compares her to Cass. Donna calls him a selfish, self-centered jerk but we don't get to hear more because Dan, Rebecca and the newly-arrived Karl interrupt them. All the teens quickly disperse. Dan takes a call from Toadie while Rebecca shows Karl around the rest of the camp ground (not hearing Zeke call out from the cupboard).
Toadie's leaving another apology message on Steph's phone when Tim Collins smarmily sidles up to him.
TOADIE: (on the phone) I know I'm the lowest form of life that's ever crawled on this planet...
TIM: Hellooooo Jarrod.
TOADIE: Then again, maybe not.
They trade insults for a while until Tim informs Toadie he's being sued for defamation - courtesy of Steph. Toadie's gobsmacked.
As it turns out, though, Greg is the one who set it up with Tim when he was chatting to him about his divorce. Steph's outraged and angrily tells Greg that he has no right trying to take over her life. Greg says he didn't like seeing her so upset but Steph snits that she can look after herself.
STEPH: You're jealous of my friendship with Toadie, aren't you? That's why you're interfering.
GREG: What kind of friend writes a play like that?
STEPH: Well I'm sure you wouldn't have gone to a lawyer if it was Libby that wrote it.
GREG: I did what I did for you.
STEPH: I don't believe you.
Didge is dismayed to see Donna with all her bags packed, ready to leave. Donna refuses to look Didge in the eye because she can't handle her “please don't let me down face”.
DONNA: I can't have fun, not with Mingo around.
Bwah. I'm going to adopt that. Didge soon wins her over and convinces her to stay - for Didge because it‘s her last hurrah before the baby, and for herself so she can prove she has more dignity than Ringo (and her mum). They hug then quickly rush off to let Zeke and Sunny out of the cupboard.
Sunny complains of pins and needles, whining that it has to be more than 10 minutes by now. She starts banging and screaming at the door, bursting Zeke's eardrums in the process. Sunny begs Zeke to phone Dan, but wouldn't you know it, his battery dies right there and then.
Outside The Cupboard
Didge and Donna race around the corner of the hall, only to bump into Karl. He asks them if they've seen Zeke and Sunny but they feign ignorance. Karl walks upstairs towards the cupboard and Donna quietly wonders what they're going to do now. Didge orders her to distract Karl somehow - she'll go get help from the guys.
Didge interrupts the boys' board game fun to ask them for assistance, letting them know Donna's distracting Karl. Kyle makes a snide remark about Donna, which irks Ringo (as he‘s still smarting after Kyle‘s impromptu snog with her). But then Ringo's evil twin, Mingo, comes out to play and he bags Donna out for kissing anyone and everyone. Didge calls him a jerk and Ringo begs her not to tell Donna what he said.
DIDGE: Why should I protect you when you say things like that?
RINGO: Because if you tell her I'll never have a chance to get back with her.
DIDGE: I don't think you deserve one.
Zeke's now using his iPod for light, but it's low on battery life as well. That's what you get for having ‘I've Never Been To Cuba' on repeat, Ezekiel. Sunny rues the day she ever accepted Ringo's dare and calls herself a stupid, ugly klutz with braces that everyone hates. But Zeke says that she's beautiful, causing Sunny to hide away a shy little smile.
Toadie's on the phone to Dan while packing a suitcase of clothes, promising that he's on his way right now. Steph stops by to let him know that Greg was the one who got Tim involved - she had no idea about it. Toadie's quite frustrated that it all boiled down to Greg's jealousy. Steph admits that she was shocked when she read the play, but only because she didn't know that's how Toadie really felt about their relationship.
TOADIE: I was exaggerating.
STEPH: Yeah but was there just a little bit of truth to it? Is that what you really thought, that I led you on? That I pitied you? That's not what happened.
TOADIE: That's how it felt.
Steph then notices a shirt in the washing basket she bought for Toadie when they were dating and reminisces. They share a fond moment and Steph apologises - as does Toad, then they hug. All is right in the world again.
Zeke tries to engage Sunny in a game of I Spy, but Sunny's not up for it. Especially since the iPod is now iDead. Scrounging around in her pocket, Sunny takes out a rubber ducky keyring that is also a mini-torch. Cute. She expects Zeke will think she's a big ‘ol nerd, but Zeke admits he was the biggest geek around not all that long ago.
ZEKE: I'll let you in on something. If you stop thinking that you're uncool, then so will everyone around you. And just for the record, I think you're pretty cool.
They lean in and are just about to kiss when Donna and Didge open the door, causing them to jump apart. The girls apologise as Sunny and Zeke try to adjust their eyes to the bright light. Donna wonders if they had the worst time ever, but Zeke and Sunny share a sly little grin like, “Ahh, not really...”
Steph rips up the defamation papers and throws them at Greg. He can't believe she's letting Toadie get away with humiliating her, but Steph retorts that it's none of his business. You can see the jealousy seep through his pores when Steph reminds him that she and Toadie go way back.
GREG: You really care what he thinks about you, don't you?
STEPH: Yeah of course I do.
GREG: More than what I think?
STEPH: (affronted) Do you want me to choose?
GREG: Looks like you already have.
Steph's angrily cleaning up Charlie's toys and ignoring Greg, making sure to smash and crash everything around.
GREG: You know, this is the noisiest silent treatment I've ever been given.
Steph doesn't understand what his problem is with Toadie being her friend. Greg wonders how comfy she'd be if he suddenly wanted to hang out with Veronica (Pfft, like she'd even speak to you). Steph admits she'd feel a tad uneasy about it, but she sure as hell wouldn't stop him from seeing her. Greg says he doesn't want to stop her either, admitting that it's pretty impressive that she can still be mates with Toadie after all they've been through. He promises to stop fighting her battles for her as long as she puts herself first for a change. Steph forgives him. Great.
Zeke catches up with Sunny and the girls while they're walking.
DONNA: Imagine if we'd totally forgotten about you guys! It would have been like the people in the Andes who had to draw straws to see who they were going to eat first.
Declan takes Didge aside for a chat to make sure she hasn't told Donna what Ringo said about her. Didge still wants to out him, but Declan knows Ringo didn't mean it - it was just a heat of the moment thing. Dan and Rebecca walk over to them.
DECLAN: Fitzy I'm sorry but this camp is a real fizzer.
REBECCA: Ain't that the truth.
DAN: Bec! Ay!
Paul suddenly drives up the dusty road much to Rebecca's surprise. She walks over and discovers that he's booked a swish hotel room nearby and wants to whisk her away for some pampering. Rebecca's extremely tempted but doesn't want to abandon Dan and Karl “with the undead“. But then a light bulb goes off. Grinning, she orders Paul to get out of the car and follow her.
Toadie runs into Tim and gloats about the defamation being dropped. Tim snits that it doesn't alter the fact that his ex-fiancée hates him, but Toadie begs to differ.
TOADIE: If she hated me she wouldn't have dropped the case. She was looking out for me. (He has a moment of clarity) In fact, if she hated me, she wouldn't have helped me get Callum and then get him back because I sent him away. She wouldn't play poker with me, she wouldn't drink beer and eat pizza with me. She wouldn't let me anywhere near Charlie. In fact, that woman is the best friend a bloke could ever ask for.
He practically skips out, a man on a mission.
Toadie has brought over a pizza for Steph and Greg to enjoy, but Greg's out so Steph invites Toad to eat it with her instead. They sit down on the couch and Toadie asks if she wants to workshop a new ending to the play with him. Steph thinks that's an ace idea. They start to banter about whose name will go on the credits first then have a rock-paper-scissors dual over it. Greg, of course, watches them laugh and carry on from the hallway. Pouting like a 5-year-old he walks out again.
Dan and Karl are walking around the site when they suddenly spy a thicket of bushes thrashing about. Karl thinks it's teens up to no good, but Dan guesses it's a wombat and starts to wallop the tree with a big stick! Rebecca springs up looking very dishevelled and lamely says that she lost an earring. All the teens stare at her - Declan's mortified. His embarrassment grows when Paul swiftly leaps up beside her. Dan's appalled as she's supposed to be setting a good example for the kids. Karl also looks displeased, but that's such a pot calling the kettle black moment. At least they weren't nude, Karl. Dan thinks it's time to go home.
KARL: I think you're being too hasty. We could play some music, I've got my guitar.
DAN: Oh God help us.
Dan announces to everyone that they're heading back to Erinsborough and is met with cheers of approval. Kyle tries to get a ‘Looks like we're going home!' high-five from Declan but is ignored. He then tries to crack onto Donna, but she tells him she's sooo not interested and it meant nothing.
KYLE: Yeah Ringo told me. Doesn't it always?
RINGO: Shut it, Kyle.
KYLE: He said you use guys all the time, which is fine by me.
DONNA: (gutted) You said that?
Ringo looks extremely guilty and Didge quietly confirms it's true. Filled with rage, Donna storms over and pushes Ringo the ground (I was hoping for a punch).
DONNA: Don't you ever speak to me again.
