Ringo saving Naomi when she collapsed.
Naomi looking at Ringo's Uni ID.
Donna and Ringo are on their hands and knees scouring the floor for his ID tag…
…But it isn't there because Naomi has it and she types his name into her iPhone to do a search.
Ringo and Donna are still looking for the ID.
Naomi looks at the results of her search and discovers that Ringo's enrolled at Eden University. She also sees he has a Facebook page too.
Ringo thanks Donna for helping try and find his ID and hopes he'll see her at the Uni sports day. Donna replies that she'd like to have a drink with him there but he vetoes that as he is working.
Naomi looks through Ringo's Facebook profile and discovers that he is single.
Kate and Donna gossip about Ringo as they head up the street but the cut the chat off when they hear a noise and make their way over to #28 where Zeke is putting Susan through her paces… because she's in training (Zeke's suggestion) for the three- legged race at the Uni sports day!
The two of them start bantering about the training and Donna goes all serious on them, telling them that they shouldn't be embarrassed and are lucky they've got someone to race with before walking off.
Kate runs after her and gets the story – she thought when Ringo mentioned the sports day he was going for her. “But he's not and that's fine” she then adds although Kate doubts her. “It has to be, doesn't it?” she adds before walking off again.
Ringo is getting his stuff ready (he's the St. John's first aider) for the sports day when he spots Naomi walking by. The two of them catch up and it looks like he is rather smitten. When she moves away (to the other side of the common room), he gets ribbed by Declan but he then encourages him to go and talk to her before he begins his first aid duties.
Uni sports day in aid of the Starlight Foundation
The sports day is in full swing with everyone having fun… including Karl who is somehow recording everything on his camcorder as they make their way to where registration is taking place for the three- legged race.
They run into Donna (who is feeling a bit lonely) and enquire if she is entering the race but when she replies that she has nobody to run with, they leave her and head to the tent.
Declan and Kate spot her and head over. They bring her up to speed about the mystery lady she's spotted with Ringo (Naomi) and Kate persuades her not to leave… because she's spotted Nick arriving and who is after a partner for the three- legged race.
The contestants are now lined up waiting for the off – Nick and Donna, Kate and Declan, Susan and Zeke and a few extras to make the numbers up.
DECLAN: Hey Kinski, you're going to eat my dust.
ZEKE: Show some respect, you're talking to Susan as well.
DECLAN: Sorry Susan.
SUSAN: Stuff it Napier, you're doing down!
DECLAN, ZEKE, KATE: Ooh.
The starter sounds the horn and everyone sprints away with Donna and Nick taking an early lead until they take a tumble. Susan and Zeke are now in the lead and Nick decides to give Donna a piggy- back to the finishing line and it's a close call between the 3 Ramsay Street pairs as to who wins the race.
Ringo patches Donna up after her fall (she's a grazed knee and a sprained wrist). Nick thanks him for taking care of Donna but he was glad to help out and in the background, Naomi watches on and doesn't look that happy!
Susan and Zeke are gloating about their win at the post- drinks celebration at the bar with Kate and Declan. Nick and Donna are there sharing a drink too but slightly apart from the others.
Meanwhile at the bar, Ringo gets a text from Naomi wanting to meet him and he heads out of the bar.
As he headed out, he passed some guy who makes a beeline towards Donna and introduces himself – Nicholas McKay – the other daddy candidate!
And as we head into the first commercial break, today's trip down memory lane is to 1993 when Stephen Gottlieb and Phoebe Bright got married (episode 1833 in the archive if you want to read more).
Break over and Donna explains to Nick why Nicholas is there but she is having explaining things so Nicholas butts in.
NICHOLAS: I think what Donna's trying to say is that you're not the only Nick who her mum had a flight with.
NICK: It wasn't a fling.
Donna takes Nick aside to explain more to him about the diary mentioning two Nicks and that she wrote to the pair of them. “But when I met you, I was so sure it was you,” she adds plus it ties in too with Cass telling him that she was pregnant.
NICK: It could have been this guy's fault.
DONNA: I am no- one's fault.
Nick immediately apologises and Donna explains more that Nicholas was Cass' Uni lecturer. He asks if that is why she asked for the DNA test.
DONNA: I just want to find my dad and I want it so badly for him to be you.
NICK: I wanted that too.
He then sends her over to talk to Nicholas but asks that she is careful.
Its gossip time for Declan, Kate and Zeke over a bottle of coke as they put the worlds to right about Ringo and his new lady friend (and that is the end of Ringo and Donna) as well as the two Nicks!
As he is passing, Andrew overhears Donna's name being mentioned and stops to enquire, so Kate fills him in on it being over with Ringo and that daddy 2 has rocked up. “She's really confused,” Kate adds and he volunteers his services if they need it before walking off.
Nicholas tells Donna about seeing the video she posted online and that he sent her a few messages too. He also adds that he didn't follow any of them up as he had to go overseas on business and he then turns the conversation around to talk to her about her shrug business.
He then enquires about Cass and Donna explains that they don't see much of each other because Cass isn't good at keeping in contact. “She hasn't changed then,” he replies then goes on to fill Donna in that he ditched her when Cass told him she was pregnant. “You're not the only one who ran when Cass got pregnant,” she sadly replies but he tries to say it was them not her.
Karl is still playing with his camcorder (this time recording Susan's hair!) and discovers Naomi in their livingroom. She explains to them who she is and that Ringo is getting changed. They continue with the intro's (the K's to her) before making small talk although Naomi seems rather evasive in her answers when Susan is talking to her about Uni.
To her relief, Ringo returns and as they are about to leave, Karl pulls him back for a little chat – he's not too happy about Ringo dating his first patient although he claims they aren't dating, just hanging out. Just ask it looks like Karl is about to give Ringo a refresher course on boundaries, Naomi comes looking for him (he asked her to wait for him outside) as they need to leave for the Uni trivia night.
Zeke is very much looking forward to the quiz starting as he chats away with Declan and Kate.
Ringo and Naomi arrive at and she wants to know what Karl was chatting to him about and he reluctantly tells her. She brings up about him treating Donna when they used to be together although he is a bit puzzled how she knows that. He replies that it's cool for treating Donna because they aren't together, so she comes up with a compromise – hang out and see what comes of it.
Andrew observes Nicholas from the other side of the bar as he pays the bill before he returns to chat more with Donna (she's interested in his PR background). Nicholas announces that its time for him to leave but before he does, Andrew comes over and introduces himself. He asks what Nicholas' line is (PR) but that's as far as the chat goes before Nicholas leaves after reminding Donna about their dinner date (Lanzini's and he's paying).
Once he leaves, Donna wants to know why Andrew interrupted them and he tells her his theory – Nicholas isn't an international businessman and has the evidence to back it up – he paid with a debit card.
Andrew surfing the net looking for more proof about Nicholas and points out to Donna other pieces of evidence that make him suspicious – although he had his Blackberry out he never received a call and his watch is a fake. To confirm his theory, he checks out the FIDO website (it's run by the securities commission) as it will show if he is dodgy and right enough when Andrew runs the search it reveals that Nicholas McKay was convicted of fraud in 2007.
Donna shows Nicholas the evidence about his conviction and wants to know why. “I needed the money” is his simple reply but she was after a bit more, like why he lied to her. Wanting to impress his daughter is his explanation but Donna makes it clear that isn't what she is after – she “wants a real one, one with guts.” Nicholas asks if that means he isn't good enough for her just like Cass thought but Donna reminds him that it was he who left Cass.
NICHOLAS: Whatever else happened in the past, you're still my daughter.
DONNA: I'm not your daughter.
NICHOLAS: Too late for that.
Final commercial break over and Zeke answers the door to Donna – she is after Karl because she wants to cancel the DNA test! He points out that the results are due any day but Donna replies that he can do what he likes; she just doesn't want to know the result.
