Donna mispronouncing Saffron's surname and feeling like and idiot.
Lucas denying he's cracking onto Steph then telling Elle to have a fantastic life when she ignores him.
Saffron ripping off Donna's fashion idea.
Elle wanting to know where Donna was all night.
Despite Donna pleading her case, Elle doesn't believe that a) she met Saffron Jankievicz and b) that Saffron used one of her ideas in her fashion show. Donna wants to go back and confront Saffron but Elle orders her to bed and they'll discuss it further in the morning. She makes a final plea but Elle's had enough of her lying.
DONNA: When you're gone, you won't have to put up with my lying any more and I won't have to put up with you always judging me and you know what? I cannot wait.
Number 22 (next day)
Elle is forced to eat her words after she's read the morning paper with Saffron's fashion show featured on the front page. Donna's relived Elle now believes her although is miffed at getting her grounding extended by another week. Elle then says that she wants to come with her to confront Saffron but before they do, Donna apologises for the crack she made and adds that she doesn't want Elle to leave. This in turn has Elle doubting whether she wants to leave or not because she has some issues to sort out first.
DONNA: The only issue is if you want to go or not and it sounds like me like not.
Robin shouts Harry to a coffee and likewise Sunny too after Harry does the intros.
Lucas decides its time to go back to work when he spots Donna and Elle entering the store. “Well at least one of my staff is talking to me” Elle tells Steph after she went over to where Elle is standing. Steph pleads for more staff to get through the backlog at the garage but Elle replies that they can't afford it so Steph comes up with another suggestion – hiring an apprentice. Elle concedes to that suggestion if the figures are favourable and Steph departs.
Elle now tells Donna that they can't go to see Saffron just now and suggests she heads home, which she does but drags Sunny on the way out.
Elle comes by to tell Steph and Lucas that she's made a decision about hiring an apprentice… they can have one but they can't pay for one.
LUCAS: So you want them to work for free?
LUCAS: And what sucker is going to do that?
Lucas is stunned and Steph tries not to laugh in front of the boss before asking if she is serious.
ELLE: Well why wouldn't I be?
LUCAS: Couple of reasons. One you know nothing about cars, two (throwing a rag at Elle which she jumps back trying to avoid) you're allergic to dirt.
Elle tries to say she be useful by talking calls, filing and cleaning up the mess. She adds that it will be good for her to learn about the business from the ground up… and that she'll get used to the dirt too!

Donna hasn't gone home but is trying to get Sunny into helping her confront Saffron but they can't get past the security guard.
Elle is standing around like a spare part. Eventually she asks for them to give her work to do, so Lucas tells her to put some air into a tyre and they stand back and amuse themselves as she tries to do as requested.
Susan is covering the bar for Rebecca and she talks Harry into helping move some boxes once he's finished the OJ he orders. Robin arrives at his back and volunteers to help Harry in return for hanging out with him and Sunny later.
Commercial break later and Elle is surprised to see Susan at the bar when she enters. Susan is a bit mystified with Elle's new appearance (blue overalls) and can see right through Elle when she tries to explain why she is working at the garage.
SUSAN: You want him back.
ELLE: Yes, I want him back.
Steph is most impressed with the tidying up that Elle has done. In return, she asks to be shown how to do a grease and oil change but Steph has to pick Charlie up so Lucas volunteers to show her instead.

Elle calls to say she can't go with Donna today, that they'll go tomorrow instead but Donna tells her that she is at the venue just now with Sunny. Surprisingly Elle is calm about it and indeed when Donna tells her that they couldn't get in, she encourages her to keep trying “otherwise you'll live to regret it.”
Lucas now has the tools needed to do the grease and oil change, so he and Elle slide underneath a car on those boards mechanics use.
Susan wants to know why Robin helped move the boxes. Harry explains that he volunteered and that Robin is driving him crazy hanging around like a bad smell and wanting to hang out with his mates too.
HARRY: The guy's a weirdo.
Susan doesn't think so, instead replying that he's just lonely and reminds Harry what its like to be an outsider but Harry still isn't changing his opinion of Robin.
Toadie is all full of the joys over his date with Sonya as he tells Steph about it and is surprised she doesn't appear pleased for him. Steph explains that because he is a big softie, she doesn't want to see him have his heart broken in the first five minutes.
TOADIE: How did you get to be so smart at all this stuff?
STEPH: I'm only smart for other people not myself. That's not how it works unfortunately.
TOADIE: Yes, how is old what's his face?
STEPH: Fine. Its fine, just mates is fine.
(Toadie looks at her)
STEPH: Fine thank you very much, we're psychoanalysing you here not me.
TOADIE: Well what's left to tell? I'm a big softie that races into things too quickly. You got it in one.
STEPH: So what are you going to do about it?
TOADIE: Join the Foreign Legion?
Steph suggests that he could always just try to get to know a little bit about her but Toadie still thinks that the Foreign Legion would be easier before the two of them share a hug.
Elle is just about finished working on the car but accidentally spills coolant onto the floor. As she is about to clean it up, Lucas asks her if this apprentice stuff is just another game for her to get him to quit. She totally denies this especially as it will involve having a years worth of manicures for her nails to recover!
LUCAS: So what then?
ELLE: I'm not doing this to get rid of you. I want to get you back. I'm not going to New York because I want us to be together.
He thinks that she is joking with him because things are never that easy with her, adding that he's just got through one round and doesn't know if he can take another. Elle is surprised by the use of ‘round', so he explains that it refers to the casino stunt and the newspaper expose. The two of them then start trading insults at each other until Lucas asks why she wants them to get back together.
ELLE: I wouldn't, not in a million years.
Ah the classic line because two seconds after she's said it, they are pashing…seriously pashing!

Donna and Sunny's patience is rewarded when Saffron arrives in a limo. She tries to talk to her about using her skelt idea but Saffron still insists it was her idea, so Donna takes a chance and asks her for work experience.
DONNA: I got a million other design ideas as good as the skelt, I could be really good for your company.
SAFFRON: I'm not a hardware chain, I don't do work experience.
DONNA: Well then you need to make an exception.
SAFFRON: Are you always this pushy?
SAFFRON: Me too, it will get you a long way in this industry. I'll give you a one week creative observer ship…Impress me.
Robin and Sunny chat about her exchange and how she's fitting into Erinsborough.
Donna springs the still pashing couple when she arrives and tells them about her news. They congratulate her but Donna knows that there is something up with them, which Elle denies.
DONNA: Come on, even I know that isn't a fan belt… and you have pash rash.
ELLE: Okay, so maybe we had a moment.
DONNA: A moment?
ELLE: Alright, a few moments.
ELLE: And you are not allowed to tell anyone about this.
DONNA: Am I allowed to say that this is so totally awesome?
ELLE: (pause) Yes you are.
Susan decides to have a chat with Robin following her one with Harry earlier. Subtly she tries to talk to him and when he says that he can sometimes be full on, she tells him that it's perhaps better to go slowly to let the friendship develop. Robin pulls out the ‘I've stuffed it all up' card then departs after saying that he'll chill out.
Robin climbs into Sunny's unoccupied bedroom through an open window. He comes across a photo of Sunny and Zeke and rips it in half, discarding the part with Zeke in it.
