- Callum telling Lou he's cursed.
- Susan telling the Ramsay kids the street was named after their family.
- Libby showing photos of Billy and Anne's twins.
- Zeke getting mad at Sunny for writing more letters.
- Donna realising that Ringo didn't write the letters.
- Sunny telling Donna she wrote the letters.
- Donna kissing Sunny and Sunny freaking out.
Donna sits with a cloud of gloom over her head. She asks Lucas if he's ever stolen a kiss. He thinks they're the most thrilling kind, but that's not what Donna means.
DONNA: Like, say two people have been circling around each other for and then just before they do it, you get in there first?
LUCAS: Oo, yeah I did exactly that to my brother once.
DONNA: And he forgave you right?
LUCAS: Yeah….spent a long time trying to kill me first though.
DONNA: I should leave the country. I've ruined everything.
The Ramsay House
Mr School Counsellor and Harry are playing basketball. Obviously Harry wants to know when he's going to get the lecture about moving to Ramsay Street. Dan tells him that the Salvos are paying for the house and good people live in the street (*ahem*Paul*ahem*) what's not to like?
Miranda notices Lou has been in the wars. Callum reminds them about Witch Wilma, the Ex with the Hex. I only mention this triviality because it's a good line and a big lump of awkwardness named Steve is hovering awkwardly in the background. He wants to know if Miranda has signed the papers for the clinic.
MIRANDA: I'm not signing. I'm not giving up on us that easily.
STEVE: Miranda, come on, we talked about this.
MIRANDA: No Steve, you talked about it. I don't think it's a good idea.
STEVE: You've got no right to stand in the way.
MIRANDA: I'm still your wife! We'll talk about this later.
Steph comes in, has some banter with Dan and locates Libby to ask if she's had a chance to speak to Dan. Libby does her “I'm not going to be able to lie about this” face.
Steph wants to speak to Dan but Libby busts in and Steph quickly lies that she was there to see her and invite her to a night in front of the TV. Libby has a date to play cluedo with Ben so it looks like Steph will just have to play poker with the boys instead. Steph leaves and Libby chases her, knowing she was going to say something to Dan. Steph doesn't think Lib is coping after seeing Billy and Anne's twins and says she should speak to Dan. Libby maintains that she can manage and forbids Steph to say anything.
Donna swings by before school, but she's already missed Zeke and Sunny. She asks Susan how Zeke was and wants to know if he was acting weirdly or muttering Donna's name. Susan wonders if there's something going on she should know about but Donna bolts.
Susan tries to engage Karl in conversation about odd teenage behaviour but he is too preoccupied with pathology containers and a video camera.
KARL: Some of our neighbours maintain that their dogs don't do their business on my lawn. DNA profiling will prove them big fat liars
SUSAN: You're gonna DNA dog poo?
KARL: Hmm! And I'm going to film the incident and put it on the web. Name and shame!
SUSAN: You're a pathetic man Karl.
He nods and happily continues with his little project. It's good to have a hobby.
Donna looks troubled and isn't too keen to bump into Zeke, who says she has something that belongs to him. A KISSSSSSSSSS!! She gives his calculator back and tells him she knows about the letters. She asks how Sunny is, but he's waiting for her to speak to him since she was the one who broke her word. Donna tells him to stick to his guns! He's about to walk off when she stops him.
DONNA: Zeke, this is wrong. You and Sunny are perfect together, I'm the screw up.
ZEKE: You didn't do anything wrong.
DONNA: Yes I did.
ZEKE: You didn't make her write those letters.
DONNA: You're not carrying any concealed weapons are you?
Zeke just wants Donna to get to the point, but they're interrupted by a RandomDan moment and Donna chickens out, but tells Zeke to talk to Sunny.
Later, it's play rehersal time – scene 28, the kissing scene! Also, conveniently if they adjust the tone Sunny and Zeke's lines ring close to home. As Zeke leans in to kiss Sunny she stops him.
SUNNY: You're not the first…
ZEKE: But I thought you said…
SUNNY: I know. Someone else got in first.
DAN: All right, can we just go back to the script please.
ZEKE: You kissed someone else?
SUNNY: No, they kissed me.
ZEKE: Who kissed you?
DAN: Guys, there's a place for improvising, and there's a place for sticking to the script. Now…
DONNA: It was me! I stole Sunny's first kiss. I'm sorry, it didn't mean anything. It's not like I was trying to get with her or something. I was just excited because of the letters and that someone would want to write them and…
Dan puts his head in his hands as the rest of the class, scandalised, wolf whistle and start gossiping. Zeke rounds on Sunny for letting it happen. She argues that she didn't “let” it happen, but she's glad because she can't ever think how it could have been him!
The Ramsay House
Kate and Harry lead Sophie, blindfolded, outside for a surprise – a new bike! And there's a more unwelcome surprise – Susan. She had a call from the Salvation Army who need an answer about the house today. Kate say they're fine there. She'll get a part time job and they'll make it work. She can look after her brother and sister. Susan reminds her that she can call any time and leaves.
Libby tells Steph that Dan wants kids more than anything and she's just frustrated she can't give them to him. Steph asks what it would take, and Libby reminds her it's impossible. Steph asks again. A miracle. Steph looks like she's formulating a plan, but says no more and tells her that they're going out to hustle some marks.
Steve finds Miranda struggling to prune a bush so lets Jake off the lead to give her a hand. Next door, Karl is lurking behind a bush, spying on Jake who makes a beeline for the Kennedys' lawn. Agent Kennedy gets his video camera out.
Steve and Miranda discuss Bridget and Steve says he misses her. Miranda thinks he'll miss her a lot more when he's in Oakey. She hands him the signed papers she's been wheeling around in her barrow.
MIRANDA: I didn't want to because it means the end of us as a family.
STEVE: The four of us will always be a family.
MIRANDA: Ever think this would be us?
The poignant mood, such as it is between the Parkers, is broken by Karl continuing operation canine business. The battery on his camera dies, just as Jake is ready to …. I can't believe I have to type this. I'll let you guess! Anyway, Lou comes over to see what Karl is up to and, well, puts his foot in it. Lou immediately tries to wipe the mess off his shoe but Karl wrestles with him so he can get a sample.
KARL: I need to know where this came from!
LOU: I know where it came from.
Susan hurries outside to tell Karl that one of the Ramsay children is injured and needs their help.
The Ramsay House
Sophie has fallen off her bike and Karl checks her over. She's bumped her head and hurt her ankle but he thinks she'll be ok. He'd like her to go to hospital though, just to make sure she's not broken her ankle. Katie and Harry don't want to go to hospital in case human services get involved.
KARL: Well, Sophie needs medical supervision.
SUSAN: You're not roistered on today.
KARL: Yeah, but I've actually got a bit on…
SUSAN: Collecting samples?!
Karl bandages Sophie's ankle while Zeke and Harry try to kill each other on the Nintendo. Hmm, a tactful game to play with someone whose mother has just died. Sunny takes the control from Harry and well and truly kills Zeke, which makes her feel better. Lou and Callum come in and smell cake.
LOU: Karl, will you tell this young clown I am not cursed.
CALLUM: You were cursed by a certified cursed stone given to you by a certified witch. You're cursed baby.
SOPHIE: So, did this curse come with a feather or dirt? It's important.
Susan introduces Lou to the Ramsays and they go to cut some cake. The Ramsays watch the happy neighbourly gang surround the cake joking around. Aaaah, they're being sucked in….!
The boys are getting ready for poker night and waiting for Steph, but Steph has brought a partner in crime.
LUCAS: Captain Cuddles, you are so under the thumb!
DAN: So what are we playing?
LIBBY: Poker. Texas hold'em. You guys aren't playing for match sticks are you?
Later on Donna comes home in a foul mood. Lucas tries to cheer her up but fails and Steve jokes that Lucas has a real way with kids and will make a great dad one day. Lucas asks how Steve's IQ test went – he's been building a cot for the baby. Lucas and Steve twitter on blithely about babies as Libby's face changes to her “I can't have babies and I'm sad” expression. She makes her excuses to leave and Steph follows her. Dan shakes his head at the guys.
Libby sobs to Steph that Dan wants a baby and she can't give him one as Dan comes in and tells her that people can't always get what they want. Steph thinks maybe there is a way.
STEPH: Ok, Lib, if you can't carry a baby. Maybe I can carry it for you. I'll be your surrogate guys. I'll have your baby.
