Harry walking in on Summer getting changed at the gym.
Summer leaving her phone on ‘microphone' in the changing rooms.
Andrew and Harry discussing how to get girls (specifically, Summer), and Summer's phone recording their conversation.
Summer's on her laptop listening to the conversation she recorded between the boys, when Lyn walks in. She has a ‘#1 teacher' mug for Libby's first day back and is going to pop across the road to give it to her. Summer listens to the recording again: “the manual's a fraud.”
Karl is making toast but neither Libby nor Zeke are hungry. Lucas comes past to wish Libby good luck for the day, but Libby's not too worried – she has a lot of patience with kids.
KARL: (trying to make her eat toast) Easy to lose your patience when you're hungry.
Zeke tells Lucas he's doing his first day of community service at the garden nursery. Isn't that where Lance used to work?! Lyn pops over with the mug, saying it's from Steph...when she sees Lucas. Embarrassed, she explains that Steph has taken Charlie out. Libby likes the mug.
Libby is setting up her laptop in the office when Summer walks in, up to mischief. Seeing Libby, she makes an excuse that she saw some West Warratah kids at the bike sheds picking a fight. Libby goes off to sort it out, and Summer goes back into the office, sits at the computer, and prints out a list of student contact information...
Cut to later where Sum sits in the corridor, messaging the recording of “the manual's a fraud” to all the boys at school. Andrew walks in with Harry, as some of the boys are listening on their phones. One of the kids walks over, demanding his money back for the manual. He plays Andrew and Harry the message, and Andrew pretends that he doesn't know who it is speaking. The guy demands his money back.
Zeke is walking up to the nursery with Toadie, who is assuring his mate that the people doing community service are not hardened criminals, but people who've made mistakes. Toadie leaves, and Zeke joins up with the community service group.
The group leader gives them a speech – this is a chance for them to work hard and give something back, not something to brag about. Suddenly, Mia arrives. Zeke is shocked.
Cut to later, where Zeke and Mia are wheelbarrowing stuff. Zeke admits he's not angry with her, and Mia tells him she got caught, too, and she's sorry for leaving him. She tells him the other kids went to juvie and jail. The group leader tells them to stop talking, so Mia says she'd better do as she's told.
ZEKE: Since when do you care about that?
Mia looks quiet, and walks off. Zeke is concerned, and follows her to wheelbarrow some more mulch.
Andrew sits on the classroom floor when Harry comes in, reminding him that all the kids want their money back. Andrew tells his cousin that he's give the money from the manuals to his dad; he can't ask for it back, not now. Andrew and Harry ponder who it is sending the message, and Andrew declares his intention to get even.
Summer, overhearing, walks in.
SUMMER: Should I be scared?
ANDREW: What? ...you?!
SUMMER: How does it feel to have your private stuff made public?
ANDREW: Inconvenient. Why would you ruin a perfectly good scam?
SUMMER: Well someone had to teach you a lesson. That manual you wrote was a sexist piece of junk.
Summer accuses him of not stopping the footage of him and Donna getting out – and Andrew doesn't deny it.
Mia joins Zeke on a break, and he asks again why she cares about the rules, and she admits that now her mates are in jail it's different. Also, her grandpa was so upset about it, he got really sick. It made her re- think.
ZEKE: I can relate to that.
Mia says she still wants to stop animals get hurt, but needs to find a better way. She's heard Zeke on PirateNet, too – she likes hearing his voice. He invites her on the show to talk about her cause, especially as the listeners would love it. They go to kiss, but then Mia pulls back: she's no good for him. Zeke's gutted.
Zeke is chasing Mia into the store, wanting to know what's going on. She says they shouldn't get into a relationship again, especially because of his family who hate her guts. Susan dobbed her into the cops! Zeke admits that it might be weird, but the Ks are reasonable people, and Mia needs to give them a chance. Lyn comes over, wondering if everything's alright, and recognises Mia. She starts to tell Zeke how upset Karl and Susan would be, and Mia walks off.
Harry catches Summer in the corridor, wondering how much of their conversation she heard. She says all of it, but she knows that Harry is the good guy. Harry admirably defends his cousin, explaining that Andrew was trying to pay his dad back, but Summer's not buying it.
Across the corridor, Karl arrives in his grandma glasses, to give Libby some fruit salad for lunch. Embarrassed, she ushers him into the classroom.
LIBBY: You only have to wear them when you're reading. (Sincerely) They are SO embarrassing.
KARL: Well the students don't think so. I got compliments.
LIBBY: (Pitying) They're mocking you.
KARL: I heard what I heard. And I heard “ger- oovy.”
Karl asks after Libby's day, and so far it's been alright. Thank goodness for that, then.
Andrew tells Harry that he just has to stay out of everyone's way until the end of the day, then it'll all die down. And...perhaps it would have. Except that Summer has copied the manual and is handing it out to everyone at the store. Toadie has a copy.
Andrew looks over to the counter. Summer smiles and waves sweetly.
Toadie offers a critique of the manual, and says it's not about wooing a girl, it's all about chemistry. Lyn joins in on the debate: chemistry just like Toadie and Steph. Boys from Erinsborough High walk in – and they're here for Andrew. Toadie can't believe the boys bought the manuals for $20! They want their money back, and Andrew tries to defend himself. The boys are upset that they'll never get girlfriends, so Andrew turns it back on Summer, who quickly turns it all back on Andrew. Harry gets up, knocks the boys over, and he, Andrew and Summer scarper across Lassiter's, chased by the Erinsborough High Loser gang.
TOADIE: Reminds me of my school days.
LYN: Being chased?
LYN: Or doing the chasing...
Andrew, Harry and Summer run into the classroom, and Summer locks the door. Andrew locks the other door. Harry locks the...no, he doesn't, because they've removed the third one. Anyway, the doors are locked, and the other boys are trying to get in.
ANDREW: That should hold them for a while.
HARRY: Then what?
ANDREW: Do I have to think of everything?
SUMMER: Well you're the reason why we're here.
ANDREW: You're the one that went around doing voicemails and handing out copies.
LOSER BOY: Get out here you wuss!
SUMMER: And you're the one who wrote it in the first place cos you had to pay your dad back for your dodgy dance party.
ANDREW: Who told you about that?
HARRY: Let's not sweat about the details...
LOSER BOY: OPEN UP ROBINSON! IT'S YOUR FAULT I'M SINGLE!
Libby comes over, demanding to know what's going on. She sends the boys away and asks the kids to open the door, which they do on the threat of their parents being called. She walks in – and Andrew locks the door again!
LIBBY: I'm not in the mood for this. Start talking.
Cut to later, where Libby still hasn't gotten to the bottom of anything, but knows the manual has been written and sold. Andrew wrote it, Harry sold it, and Summer exposed it. Libby realises what happened earlier.
LIBBY: There were no kids from West Warratah. You told me a lie to get into my office to use my computer.
ANDREW: Nice one.
Libby puts them all on weekend detention before dismissing them.
The three kids walk in – where Zeke is sitting at the breakfast bar which has changed angle. Odd. They are complaining about the weekend detention, and Summer leaves the boys to it. Lucas approaches Zeke, who is staring blankly, and asks him what's going on. Lyn comes over and, nosily listening in, tells Zeke to stay away from Mia.
ZEKE: Thanks, Lyn, but when I want your advice I'll ask for it.
LYN: Yeah, alright. Just trying to help.
Lucas wonders what's with Mia, and Zeke says that she's worried what Karl and Susan will think of her. Even though she dumped him, he still likes her – so Lucas encourages him to get Karl and Susan to change their minds.
Zeke is cooking curry when Karl comes home, excited about the nice smells from the kitchen. Zeke says that an old girlfriend is coming for dinner.
KARL: Bree Timmins?
ZEKE: Ah, no.
ZEKE: A little bit more recent.
KARL: Don't...don't tell me Sunny's back in town?!
There's a knock at the door and Karl, in his grandma glasses, opens it. It's Mia, with flowers and a ‘hi Doctor Kennedy'. Karl rudely refuses to let Mia in, and she leaves, upset. Zeke is furious, but Karl is furious....er. He tells Zeke he's going his son a favour because Mia's nothing but trouble. Zeke storms out, leaving Karl with the flowers.
Zeke catches up with Mia at Charlie's. He kisses her. He doesn't care what Karl thinks – he wants to see her, and nothing will stop him. She agrees, and whilst Zeke buys drinks to celebrate (and gets some congratulations from Lucas) Mia makes a phone call.
MIA: Hello, it's Mia Zannis. I'm in.
Whatever she's in, she doesn't look very happy about it. Maybe she should get out.
FVO: Steph had an affair with her best friend's husband.
Shot of Steph crying on the sofa.
MVO: This is the confrontation she's been dreading.
Shot of Steph and Libby at the coffee shop.
LIBBY: I know you better than anyone! I know there is something wrong, and I know you're not telling me! Why?!
FVO: Neighbours, weeknights, on Ten.
