Elle has brought home some travel brochures for Lucas as she reckons they could use a holiday.
Dan is still watching the CCTV footage from Grease Monkeys on his computer looking at a still of Johnno outside the garage. He prints out the picture and dials a number on his phone.
Lucas tells Elle they can't go on holiday now with everything going on for them. ‘Going on with Steph?' Elle wonders. Lucas insists that it's not just Steph, the whole business is affected. The phone rings but Lucas can't find his phone so the call goes to voicemail.
Dan leaves a message on Lucas's voicemail for him to call back.
Lucas wants to call Dan back, but Elle thinks it can wait and gives Lucas a kiss. If she can't take him away on a holiday they can at least get up to something now and they head upstairs to the bedroom.
Libby brings the dinner plates for her and Dan, but he can't stay. He says Lucas just called him about something urgent so he needs to head out.
Elle and Lucas are getting down and dirty when they hear a knock on the door. Lucas wants to ignore it but Elle says it could be Donna who's lost her keys. The front door isn't locked though and it doesn't take long for Dan to enter off his own accord and make his way up to Elle's bedroom. Lucas opens the door to the bedroom and tells his brother to rack off ‘unless it's life or death'. When Dan insists it's important that they talk now Lucas gives in.
Downstairs Dan shows Lucas the picture of Johnno at the garage. It was taken just after Lucas had brought the Parkers' car back from the test drive. Dan has a theory that Johnno thought that the car was Lucas's and that's why he sabotaged it. Lucas wants to know where Dan got the picture from and Dan offers to show his brother the whole tape from the Grease Monkeys camera. Elle comes down the stairs and wants to know what's going on. The boys make up an excuse that they are going out for a beer so that they can have some privacy.
Lucas doesn't think that the video footage is convincing enough as you can only see Johnno duck down behind the car but you don't see him actually doing anything. Dan can't believe this and insists that deep down Lucas knows it was Johnno who did it. He wants to take the tape to the cops and show them everything. Lucas accepts at first then changes his mind. Dan says Lucas will need to explain to the police how he knows Johnno and if they can't show evidence to back up Steph's memory then she'll lose everything she's got. Lucas says he's then responsible for Bridget's death. Dan says that it's not Lucas's fault, it was Johnno who sabotaged the car. Lucas doesn't believe it.
Libby leaves a message on Dan's phone then returns to the board game she's playing with Callum and Ben. Callum wants to know when Toadie and Dan will get home as it's not as fun when they're not there. He's so bored he makes his excuses and heads off to his room. On the way there they hear a knock on the door and Callum volunteers to answer it. It's Kate and Sophie stopping by to invite Callum to the movie marathon they have planned for the evening. Libby gives her approval so Callum goes to his room to get his things. They talk about how Callum has been a little grumpy recently and how Sophie makes him happier.
KATE: I think he's got a little bit of a C-R-U-S-H.
BEN: No way! Girls are gross!
The girls laugh at him.
The Fitzgerald brothers arrive home and as they get out of the car on the driveway to no. 22 they're in the middle of an argument. Lucas doesn't want to talk about the gambling and Johnno anymore, but Dan won't let him drop it that easily. Lucas says he knows Elle will leave him if she finds out about his secret life. Dan replies that they need to tell Steph and Toadie and then they can let Toadie deal with the police. Lucas agrees to tell them on the condition that he can tell Elle himself first.
Libby is half-asleep on the sofa when Dan comes back home. She asks if Lucas is in trouble in some way but Dan doesn't answer.
Elle's reading in bed while waiting for Lucas. When he comes in she asks him to let her in on what's going on but he says it's nothing. Dan is just having some problems.
Libby asks Dan if he wants to talk about what's going on, but he says no. Lucas has just got some things he needs to work through.
Elle wants to know what problems Dan has got going on and Lucas says it's to do with Libby.
Dan says this isn't the time for him to talk about what's going on. Libby understands that sometimes we have to keep secrets for other people and says she trusts Dan.
Lucas has got into bed next to Elle and asks her to trust him when he says that what's going on isn't a big thing. Elle thinks it must have been given how Dan came storming in earlier, but Lucas says his brother is just a drama queen.
The Ramsays and Callum are all nearly asleep on the sofa with Callum snuggled up with Kate and Sophie on Harry's lap. As they get up from the sofa to get ready for bed Callum watches Kate prepare a bed on the floor for him. He sees her with a bright light shining around her for a second before everything goes back to normal. Callum asks if Kate can make him another cup of chocolate and she agrees.
Lucas is out on his bike driving on an empty country road.
Lucas is sitting on his own immersed in thoughts. Elle finds him and says he should have woken her up so she could have come with him. She tells him she's sure that everything with the garage will work out okay and that they'll find whoever tampered with the car. Dan and Ben enters just as Elle is leaving. While Ben gets himself and Dan a drink Dan asks Lucas when they can tell Toadie and Steph what's going on. Dan realises that Lucas still hasn't told Elle and gives his brother until that same afternoon to fill her in. If Lucas hasn't told Toadie by then Dan will.
Kate is in proper housewife mode and is ironing and preparing breakfast at the same time. She spots a tear in Callum's school shirt and promises to fix it for him later on. Callum is very impressed. The others enter the kitchen to have breakfast and Callum is the only one who appreciates Kate's special home-made muesli.
Lucas is watching the CCTV footage of Johnno tampering with the car again when Elle comes in. She's not sure what to expect as Lucas just told her to come over as they needed to talk. He is about to tell her the full story, but chickens out and says he wants to go on that holiday together after all. There's no work going on for him at the garage anyway and Elle's not doing anything exciting at the paper at the moment so why not. Lucas says he can just write an affidavit about Steph for the court and he and Elle can fly out the next day. Elle wants to know what brought all of this on and Lucas says it's just taken him a while to get his head around things. Elle is very excited and says she'll call the travel agent now to sort out the tickets to Europe.
Everyone's waiting to head over to school but before they leave Kate wants to show off Callum's, sorry Babyface Jones, new wrestling costume. Callum walks out in the bright blue costume with a big BFJ logo on the front and matching jacket and facemask. He's very proud of it and Ben's very impressed, but Sophie is not amused. Ben even wants his own costume and Kate says she could make him one after school as she has lots of spare material from making Callum's costume. Jealous Sophie heads back to her room leaving a confused Kate behind. Harry tells his sister that Sophie's upset because Kate is stealing her boyfriend.
Elle is waiting for her coffee when Libby comes in. She politely asks how things are going with Lucas and Elle says he's fine. Elle asks how Libby and Dan are going and they are fine too. Libby notices the travel brochures Elle's holding in her hands and Elle says she and Lucas are heading off to Europe that same evening. Libby says Lucas can't go away now when the garage is in trouble in case the police find something concrete regarding the whole issue with Steph and the Parkers' car. Elle doesn't think there's a problem as Lucas will write an affidavit to the court about what a good mechanic Steph is and so on, but Libby thinks that the least he could do is stick around to be a friend to Steph. Libby takes off and saying it's no wonder Dan didn't tell her about what was going on the night before.
Erinsborough High School
Dan's doing some marking in one of the classrooms when Libby storms in asking why he didn't tell her about Lucas. Dan misunderstands and thinks Lucas has confessed to Elle about the accident, but Libby's talking about the trip to Europe. This is news to Dan and he takes off without letting Libby in on what's really going on.
Lucas is hanging up a ‘closed for business' sign at the garage when Dan pulls up in his car. Lucas is ready to leave and Dan comments on how Lucas never was able to stick by anything. This doesn't make Lucas change his mind as if someone as well liked as Steph can be turned on by everyone then how will anyone like a gambling addict like himself. He tells Dan about the affidavit and a burnt copy of the video footage he's prepared for the court and says Johnno will tell the truth as soon as the police arrest him anyway. Dan begs his brother not to leave but Lucas isn't listening and drives off.
Lucas and Elle are ready to depart for the airport. Elle says she ran into Libby at the general store earlier and she wasn't very happy about them going away. Lucas says he's given the affidavit to Dan to hand in after they've left for the trip. Elle wants to know why Lucas can't hand it in himself before they go away and comments that Lucas doesn't seem as excited about the trip as he was earlier.
LUCAS: Elle, you know I love you, right?
LUCAS: Which is why I couldn't tell you about last night, the real reason Dan came around. He found some security footage from Grease Monkeys which shows the front of the garage.
LUCAS: And it shows a guy hanging around the Parkers' car. A guy we believe tampered with it.
ELLE: Why haven't you told me this?
LUCAS: Because this guy saw me drive up in the car. He thought it was my car. He was trying to hurt me.
ELLE: Why? What have you done?
LUCAS: Because I owe him money. Gambling debts. Bridget died because of me.
