Number 26
The teens are looking online at rental properties for Dec and Didge but they're all dumps. There's also the slight problem that Dec and Didge are broke. Donna moons over another letter that “Ringo” has written her. Changing the subject, Ringo points out the nicest dump to Dec and Didge and lets them know there's an inspection that afternoon. Didge has an obstetrician appointment, but Donna offers to take her (dragging Ringo along for the ride) so Declan can go house hunting.
Charlie's Bar
Rebecca's staring morosely at the front page of the paper when Detective Skinner sidles up for a chat. He knows Rebecca is withholding information from him and suggests she let the police tap her phone lines for the next time Paul rings, but Rebecca tells him to go to hell.
Ramsay House
Katie, Harry and Sophie are on their way to the swimming pool when a swarm of paparazzi bombard them. Susan just happens to be passing at the time and ushers the Ramsay kids back into the house, giving one particularly fierce journo, Jennifer, a piece of her mind.
Erinsborough News
Susan tells Elle off for her front-page article - it practically implied that Paul was going to come after the Ramsay kids next. Rebecca also arrives to vent at Elle.
ELLE: Please, join in. You can abuse me in two-part harmony.
Lucas stands up for Elle, but when Rebecca and Susan leave Elle realises that he was only doing it because he loves her (and not because he thinks she did the right thing). Picking up the phone, Elle rings Katie and begs her not to hang up.
Number 26
Didge argues with Declan on the phone - she doesn't want him to do the graveyard shift no matter how good the money is. Donna arrives with some trinkets from Paul's garage to furnish their new digs, including a very dusty pillow and a lava lamp. Steve drops by to see Miranda and Donna accidentally lets slip that Didge wants to move out. Steve's shocked and doesn't see how they're going to afford it, but Didge snits that he's bailing on them anyway so it shouldn't bother him.
Charlie's Bar
Declan arrives just after Steve has informed Rebecca about the moving out plans. Rebecca tries to put her foot down, but Declan reminds her that he's 18 and can do what he likes. Declan and Steve then get into an argument about who can provide Didge with more security and stability. The boys leave but Rebecca isn't alone for long before Skinner arrives with a warrant to tap her phone lines.
Harold's Store
The Ramsay kids have agreed to meet with Elle - but that still doesn't mean they trust her. Katie's mobile rings and Elle correctly guesses that it's the DHS when Katie won't answer it. Elle goes up to the counter to get the kids some drinks, but is distracted when Rebecca finds her and asks her to pass a message on to Paul not to ring her (on the off chance Paul contacts her). Elle's distracted further when someone rings her with a lead on Paul's whereabouts. Feeling abandoned, the Ramsay kids leave. Rebecca urges Elle to go after them.
Ramsay House
Elle brings around some groceries for the kids. Katie asks if Elle really hates her dad, and Elle replies that he's not a good person. Harry gruffly takes the shopping bags and Katie gives Elle a polite nod before closing the door. Elle starts to leave but doesn't get very far before the paparazzi hound her. The photographers have a field day when Sophie sneaks out to have a look and Elle quickly ushers her back inside. There's talk of story exclusivity, which plants an idea in Elle's head.
Erinsborough Gym
Steve has a heart-to-heart with Didge, reminding her that he'll always love her no matter where he is. He understands why she and Dec want to have their own home and wants to support them. If Miranda agrees to sell the clinic, he'll use the money to pay for a bond on a house and help them with the rent. Didge knows the deal is bittersweet and feels conflicted. They have a hug.
Harold's Store
Ringo wants to know where Sunny gets all of her ideas from for her letters, but Sunny evasively says she reads a lot. Zeke finds them and gets touchy when he realises Sunny penned another letter - he was supposed to read them first. Sunny's mortified that Zeke knows but doesn't understand why he's so angry. Zeke makes out that he's worried about Donna and threatens to spill the beans if she gets another letter.
Ramsay House
Katie keeps Harry and Sophie distracted while she talks over a deal with Elle and Lucas. Elle wants to give her the $15,000 cheque she wrote the other day as payment for exclusivity to Erinsborough News. Katie ums and ahs about it, not knowing if she can trust Elle. Elle agrees that she can't, but what other choice does she have with the DHS breathing down her back?
Harold's Store
Elle's on the phone with a contractor, making sure all the other papers know the Erinsborough News “owns” the Ramsay kids. Susan sees Lucas cropping a pic of the kids on his laptop and is outraged they're going to exploit them in the media. But Elle reveals that she only pretended to conduct an interview with Katie so she would take the money. Now Elle has all the rights and the kids won't be hounded by journos anymore. Susan is impressed.
Number 28
Ringo, Zeke and Sunny are still bickering when they walk in the door, but are stunned to see Donna standing casually in the kitchen.
ZEKE: How did you get in here?
DONNA: Laundry window. I needed peanut butter to make my milkshake.
Sunny giggles, but goes off to her room when Zeke glares at her. Ringo and Donna leave for Didge's appointment. Zeke tries to get into the hallway but realises Sunny has blocked his way. She won't let him through until he tells her why he's being so weird. Zeke admits that he doesn't understand how she can write about love but not talk about it. Sunny pretends that she doesn't feel that way about anyone and says she'll stop writing the letters.
Medical Clinic
Didge, Donna and Ringo take a seat but Ringo is severely freaked out by all the pregnancy posters around the room with diagrams of babies coming out of wombs. He asks if he can wait in the car but Donna won't let him - she'll be lonely when Didge goes in to see the doctor. Didge gets a photo text from Dec, showing her one of the rooms in the house. It's pretty crappy. Ringo's stomach churns when he lays eyes on another poster.
DONNA: What is wrong with you?
RINGO: (muttering) Do they have to have posters of women's bits everywhere?
DONNA: It's an obstetricians!
RINGO: It's a nightmare.
(Donna and Didge smirk and decide to have some fun)
DONNA: (pointing to a poster) Oh, Didge, is that a, um...
DIDGE: Oh yeah, I think that's what happens when you're fully dilated.
DONNA: Hmm. Look at that.
Ringo averts his eyes and tries not to lose his lunch.
Number 26
Declan is glumly flicking through the rest of the photos he took on his phone when Didge arrives home. They each pretend that they like the house, even though it's a hole. Declan says the estate agent took a shine to him and that the house is theirs if they want it, but they eventually admit the house is gross and decide that moving out can wait.
Charlie's Bar
Skinner and two plain clothed officers wait with Rebecca while she works. The phone rings and the mood is tense. Rebecca answers, her face falling when she realises it's Paul, but she quickly lets him know that he's being traced and hangs up. Skinner is not impressed.
Police Station
Toadie arrives for a one-scene appearance just as Rebecca is being lead into an interview room. He argues with Skinner that he has no right to arrest Rebecca over what happened today, but Skinner replies that Rebecca took off with Paul right after the incident with Jill Ramsay and is therefore an accessory to the crime.
