Number 30 (Toadie's bedroom)
Steph is annoyed at Lucas playing games with Sonya (and them) as they get ready for bed. Toadie is making up a bed on the floor only to be caught by Callum when he enters the room unannounced. After reminding Callum that he needs to knock before entering, they fob him off by saying Toadie has a cold hence why he isn't in the bed with Steph. Callum believes the story and departs. When alone, Steph tries to talk to Toadie about how he is feeling after Sonya's visit but she can sense he doesn't want to talk about it, even when she tells him that he is amazing.
Number 24 (next day)
It's pandemonium at #24, as the Ramsay's try to get on with having breakfast/doing chores whilst Declan feeds Indy. He isn't proving to be the best housemate though as he didn't do the dishes the night before meaning there is no clean ones for breakfast. Sophie decides to escape to Harold's for breakfast with Harry right behind her leaving Kate annoyed at the state the house is in. Declan can sense she's getting annoyed at them but she reassures him that isn't the case.
Andrew continues with the apologies by shouting Harry a coffee when he comes into the store although he does warn Andrew that he still intends to pursue Summer.
Meanwhile at the other side of the store, Callum enlists Sophie's help in getting something for Toadie's cold, although she is curious why since it's only a cold. “He's in a bad mood which means I get in trouble” he explains to her and she suggests asking Karl who has just walked into the store with Susan.
Karl is puzzled with Toadie's sudden cold since he was fine yesterday before leaving the kids to it as he is off to play golf with Susan.
Susan now slags off Karl's new golf clothes – a diamond patterned tank top with matching poloshirt – as they make their way to their golf buggy. Karl tries to goad Susan but she's holding strong… and takes off in the buggy towards the 1st tee, forcing Karl to jog there.
As they pick their clubs for teeing off, Karl is very confident of winning so Susan suggests a wager – if he loses he's got to give her his glasses and if she loses, then the blue box will come out to play (he was miffed she didn't bring the box out last night). As if to seal the deal, she points her bum at him when she bends down to place her tee in the grass.
KARL: My beloved, you have a bet.
Steph is lying on the bed watching the baby scan when Toadie enters. He mentions that they will probably have to ditch the DVD, which Steph agrees with given how close they came to being discovered yesterday plus the fact that the date is on the scan too (as well as the cover which Toadie pulls out of the DVD case to destroy) which is another reason it can't be kept.
Callum (and Sophie) again enter the room unannounced with a bottle of OJ to help aid Toadie's recovery. Steph leaves them to it to put on the kettle and Callum is suspicious, so Toadie says that Steph is upset because she wanted to watch a kooky DVD.
SOPHIE: You guys were fighting over a DVD?
TOADIE: Yeah it was bad kooky not good kooky.
Callum wants to know what it was called and Toadie replies “something about an alien” before putting the DVD away into his top drawer.
Toadie shoos them out of the bedroom to play footy since his cold is now all better (Callum asked about it) but a few seconds later Callum sneaks back in alone. He retrieves the DVD (that doesn't have the hospital cover on it anymore), takes the disc out and puts it in his cargo pants pocket.
And as we head into the first commercial break, today's trip down memory lane is a picture of Brad Willis and Beth Brennan from 1993.
Callum is explaining to Sophie his rationale behind taking the DVD (so it will make them happy if they aren't arguing) as they enter the store. They try to chat to Harry about what makes couples happy but he dismisses them and instead gets involve in a war of words with Andrew (about who will win Summer's heart).
Declan enters the store to apologise to Kate in advance for not doing the dishes (he promised he'd do them before heading to work) but she seems fine about it and replies back that she will do them when she gets home from work.
Callum now approaches Kate to ask what would make her happy.
KATE: One night, when I could come home and the house would be clean, I didn't have to cook, it would be quiet.
CALLUM: What would you do?
KATE: (surprised at his reply) I would have a bath, relax and watch my favourite movie.
He asks about which movie she'd watch and Kate replies ‘Officer and a Gentleman' – the perfect romance DVD.
Callum does a bit of DVD swapping – swapping Kate's copy of ‘An Officer and a Gentleman' with Steph's DVD of the baby scan although Sophie thinks there is probably another reason why they are fighting.
Harry and Andrew have entered the house and inject into their conversation that couples need shared interests too although Andrew points out that didn't work with Renee. Andrew says its chemistry – “no chemistry and it will never work”. This “help” seems to confuse the kids more than providing a solution as they head off to #30!
The K's are down to the last hole and Karl is oh so trying to put Susan off her putt but she succeeds despite him. It's now down to the final putt to see if Karl can tie the match but he misses and behind his back Susan does a silent happy dance!
SUSAN: That was the sweetest victory ever.
Susan now has possession of Karl's glasses and is debating on what to do with them… including whether to bury them in concrete or borrow the big blender from Kate! Karl isn't biting and it's getting on Susan's nerves and she has a sudden thought that he let her win, which he flatly denies.
Declan isn't amused when he comes home to find Sophie, Harry and Andrew playing on the PlayStation, with the place still like a tip and they ignoring his calls for help with the shopping (he had Indy in his other arm). He isn't exactly thrilled to see Andrew their either and when he makes to leave, Harry puts his foot down so Declan orders Andrew into helping them all tidy the house up.
Toadie is surprised to find a bunch of flowers, OJ and comfort food lying on the bed. Steph denies it was her then they both twig that it was Callum and Sophie who were responsible. He then panics and wonders what else they did in the bedroom, immediately going to where he placed the DVD of the baby scan. Initially he breathes a sigh of relief when he sees that the DVD is there until he opens the case and realises that the disc has been swapped.
Commercial break later and Callum is being grilled in the kitchen (not literally!) by Toadie and Steph. He pleads that he is innocent but eventually admits that it was him and explains that since Steph moved in they are always fighting and wanted to make things better. Toad tries to explain that arguing does not mean they are unhappy but Callum points out that they don't look happy either! “Don't you and Sophie argue” Toadie asks but Callum replies that they aren't boyfriend/girlfriend.
CALLUM: What's on it?
TOADIE: It doesn't matter what's on it mate, we just need it back. We need it back now.
Kate arrives home from work happy to see the house spotlessly clean, that dinner is on the go and that they (she and Declan) have the house to themselves too. Declan is about to say what dessert is but before he can get the words out, she quickly says they can watch a DVD… and guess which one she wants to watch?! Yes, it's ‘An officer and a gentleman'!
Kate is just about to put the DVD into the player when they get a visitor – Toadie bringing back the real DVD and he quickly gets hold of their DVD (but doesn't go into details over why they have each other's discs) before departing as quickly as he arrived.
Still feeling like Karl let her win; Susan brings out the blue box but he is quick to keep it on the counter when she goes to put it away again. He finally comes clean and confesses to allowing her to win which annoys her immensely.
SUSAN: I knew it and I know why too.
KARL: You do?!
SUSAN: I've been trying to work out why someone as competitive and stubborn as you would throw the game like that.
KARL: Maybe I was being nice.
SUSAN: No! You realise that those glasses make you look stupid but you wouldn't admit it, so you made the bet.
Karl tries to say that is ridiculous but gives up and admits that she was right. She then suggests a compromise – he can destroy the glasses himself!
KARL: No, no, we'll sell them on eBay, get something for them.
SUSAN: (seriously deadpan) They got to go Karl for the sake of mankind.
She then heads over to the liquidiser and lifting the lid off, urges him to do it now. Reluctantly he heads over and drops the glasses into it before Susan replaces the lid and switches the liquidiser on. While she has a happy smile on her face, Karl grimaces as he watches his glasses whiz around the machine.
Susan then heads over to where the famous blue box is sitting and teasingly lifts the lid off saying “what do we have in here.” Karl now doesn't look upset!
Steph and Toadie are lying on the bed watching the baby scan DVD again. They now decide that they need to keep it and to safely keep it, Toadie puts it into the dustiest book in his bookcase - one he hasn't opened since he left high school (Poetry for secondary students).
TOADIE: It's all going to be okay Steph. I promise.
And we all know in Neighbours language, that means it isn't going to be!
Kate wants to watch ‘An officer and a gentleman' again for the 3rd time when the DVD finishes. Declan tries to tempt her into a pash session instead but she breaks it off and admits to him that she feels things are getting a bit out of control, then agreeing with him that its going too fast.
Declan then realises that he didn't give Kate a chance to object to him moving in and after an awkward few seconds, announces that he is going to move out… now!
Andrew creeps downstairs when he hears someone in the house but thankfully before he goes to smash a vase over Declan's head, the light is switched on revealing exactly who is in the house. Rebecca appears too wondering why he didn't put the light on earlier but a cry from the pram says why he didn't do that. She then sends Andrew off to bed, telling him that she'll handle things and he trudges back off to bed.
REBECCA: What's going on, what are you doing here?
Declan doesn't answer her question, instead asking if he can stay the night. “What happened?” she asks.
