- Lucas winning the title of Blokes Club president
- Natasha telling her dad she likes people like the Robinsons
- Lyn and Lou not realising they're each other's dates
- Harry and Summer sending Lyn and Lou on fake dates
- Summer kissing Harry and Andrew seeing them
The sun is shining, the birds are singing and Harry is practically walking on air. He stops to pick up a dropped toy for a baby and gives it back to the mother with a grin. Life is good.
Meanwhile, Andrew is pummelling the crap out of a punching bag. Lucas is concerned and offers to hold the bag steady for him, but Andrew doesn't answer.
Harry practically skips up to Declan, Donna and Lou to let them know what a beautiful day it is. They're kind of weirded out by his whistling and eagerness to clear up dirty dishes, until he tells Declan and Donna that Summer kissed him, and then they're stoked.
Punch, punch, punch.
Donna and Declan wonder if Harry and Summer are “together”, but Harry's not sure. Summer kind of ran off before they could talk about anything. The D's are concerned.
HARRY: No, not like that. She was cool. Not ‘cool' cool but happy cool, y'know?
DONNA: You should still probably talk to her.
HARRY: Is that how it works?
DECLAN: She's right. Trust me, I've been there.
DONNA: Just tell her what you want and find out how she feels.
Harry looks kind of nervous all of a sudden.
Summer is having the same conversation with Steph, who is quite chuffed with the news. Summer says that Harry is sweet and lovely, and she didn't know she felt about him that way until, “Wham!”
Harry is flicking through photos on his phone. There's one of he, Summer and Andrew and then one of Summer by herself. He smiles at it.
Steph says that these things can happen with the most unexpected people. “Like you and Toadie,” Summer says. Steph's all, “... Yeah” and changes the subject, asking Summer how the kiss happened.
SUMMER: It was so nice, Steph. He was telling about his ideal first date, and I don't know, I just saw myself there with him. And it was just so perfect and I just had this feeling it was me he was talking about so I just kissed him!
They have a giggle together. Steph says Harry's a great guy and Summer agrees, “He makes me feel special.”
In the world of emoticons, Harry is colon capital D.
Summer brings up Toadie again and the fact that he and Steph were best friends before they were together. But Steph's like, ‘forget about us, this is about you' and tells Summer to follow her heart.
PUNCH, PUNCH, PUNCH!
Blokes Club HQ
Declan, Zeke and Lou are dismayed to learn from Lucas that his mate who loaned him the shed took nearly all his furniture back after he broke up with his girlfriend. All they've been left with is a busted old couch and a fridge. As club president, Lucas decides they should consult with treasurer Karl and get some “el cheapo” furniture, but Zeke reveals that Karl has invested it somewhere. Lou offers to find some good deals of the ‘fell off the back of a truck variety', but is turned down. They eventually settle on the idea of going through everyone's hard rubbish to find some old gems.
DECLAN: Shoes on the couch, now that's my sort of club.
LOU: A place where men can be men! Ha ha! I'm done with boring vegan women.
Lucas, Zeke and Declan are all, “... OK?” and quickly head out.
Later the three boys return with one rickety old chair to discover Lou sitting amongst a big pile of old furniture and scraps. He called in a favour from a mate with a truck. Lou reveals that all the junky scrap is actually worth a bit of moolah - and since he found it, he should be in charge of the money. The boys don't think this is fair, so Lou concedes that if they can find more sellable junk than him, then they can be in charge.
ZEKE: (to Lucas) Do you know how to drive a truck?
Lucas just shrugs like, ‘How hard can it be?'
Lucas and Zeke duck out the back to pick up some old junk of Lyn's, while Natasha tries to entice Andrew to hang out with her but he gives her the flick in favour of his homework. Lucas can't believe Andrew's doing homework either but soon finds out that Andrew is avoiding Summer and Harry.
LUCAS: It's early days, don't worry about it.
ANDREW: It looked pretty clear to me.
LUCAS: Nothing's clear with chicks. Do you really like her?
LUCAS: Then tell her.
Harry has set up the keyboard and is all cute and flustered trying to explain to Summer that he wrote a song for her. He plays the tune, faltering at first because of his nerves, but soldiers on and earns a look of adoration from Summer.
SUMMER: That was beautiful.
HARRY: I know it was short but I thought we could finish it together.
SUMMER: No one's ever done anything like that for me before. Thank you.
She leans in to kiss him when there's a knock at the door. It's Andrew, offering to take her out on a date to an Empire Of The Sun gig. He says he finds it hard to talk about “stuff” aka feelings, but he really likes her. Summer's absolutely flummoxed and Andrew realises that Harry's in the house. ASH = awkward situations, hooray!
First Commercial Break
Harry is pouring drinks in the kitchen, giving Summer and Andrew space to talk. Summer says she appreciates the sentiment, and she has fun with Andrew, but she can't have DandM's with him like she does with Harry: “He gets me”. Summer says she doesn't want their friendships to suffer because of this, so Andrew puts on a light and breezy ‘everything is cool' facade and says he's happy for them. Summer gives him a grateful hug but Andrew kind of shirks away and quickly heads out, hiding his disappointment. Harry says that Summer could have gone with Andrew, he'd hate for her to have to choose.
HARRY: Andrew's a cool guy and if you wanted to be with him I'd understand.
HARRY: And I don't want things to change between us. I don't want things to be weird because I really like you and I don't want to lose one of my best friends.
SUMMER: I know.
HARRY: I'm not like Andrew. I don't have these cars and these concert tickets, it's just me.
SUMMER: (smiling sweetly) I know. And that's what I want. Harry you're the one I want to be with.
She leans forward and kisses him.
Nothing cures a broken heart more than putting the moves on the new neighbour girl and taking her out on a date as sloppy seconds! Not that Natasha knows this, mind you. She's too busy lapping up the luxuries. Natasha quickly runs off to get changed and Andrew makes a face like, ‘All well, this will have to do'.
Lucas, Zeke and Declan are moaning about the lack of good rubbish around when Donna joins them for a drink. She's just been to a fabric sale and got a heap of bargains. The boys aren't all that enthused until Lucas gets a bright idea and asks Donna what her furniture reupholstering skills are like.
Andrew and Natasha return from the gig with Natasha declaring it the “best night ever”. She says he's not like any other guy she's been out with.
ANDREW: There's only one Andrew Robinson.
NATASHA: And there's only one Natasha Williams.
ANDREW: Lucky us.
Oh God, they think they're Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl. Andrew leans in and they share a kiss before he heads to the bar for coffees. Lucas approaches him looking unimpressed.
LUCAS: Make you feel better? Not cool, mate. Not cool.
Andrew practically bashes down the door until Harry answers, chiding him for almost waking the girls up. Andrew angrily asks where Harry gets off acting like Mr Nice Guy when deep down he was scheming all along.
ANDREW: It was a fair game between mates and you burnt me.
HARRY: It was never a fair game, not against you.
ANDREW: So you admit to it then?
HARRY: Well you never thought I was any real competition.
ANDREW: That's not true.
HARRY: Don't give me that! You did everything you could to be with Summer and it didn't work out. That's why you're dark, because after all that she still chose me.
ANDREW: You're full of it.
HARRY: And you're a sore loser. I'm with Summer now so deal with it.
He stalks back to his room leaving Andrew fuming in the kitchen. Go Harry!
Second Commercial Break
Natasha hears meowing outside the front door and discovers Cat on the doorstep. She nearly leaves it out there until she checks the collar and realises it belongs to the Robinsons. Natasha picks Cat up and decides to return her home in the morning.
Ramsay Street - Next Morning
Steph's collecting the paper when she sees Summer out the front of #24 waiting to walk to school with Harry. Steph gives Summer a happy hug and tells her to have fun. Summer sees Andrew walk down his driveway and heads over to make sure he's OK. She's surprised when Natasha follows him down the driveway and holds his hand - even more so when she finds out where the concert tickets went. Harry appears and ASH turns to NASH - never- ending awkward situation, hooray! Andrew's like, “We cool?” and smarmily says that Summer wants them all to be friends. Harry throws out a sarcastic, “Always” before taking Summer's bag and walking off hand- in- hand with her. It's Natasha's turn to be surprised.
NATASHA: I didn't think a girl like Summer would end up with a doofus like Harry.
ANDREW: I gave him a bit of a hand. We made it a competition between us to see who could win Summer.
NATASHA: So what am I, second prize?
ANDREW: No, I only did it to help him. To give him the confidence he needed to win her.
NATASHA: Looks like it worked.
Lucas, Declan and Zeke are happy that they made $350 from the retro shop for the junky furniture Donna fixed up for them. The price is soon slashed when Donna takes her share for time and materials, so they're left with $150. Donna leaves to go and see her dad just as Lou arrives to splash his cash around. He's delighted to learn that he's won the junk battle and starts pondering on what to spend the money on.
LOU: There is a nice banana lounge I've had my eye on for a while. Maybe some tropical plants too... Oh! Have you seen those inflatable palm trees? They're massive. They light up too.
The other blokes are mortified and ask for a compromise - Lou can have the banana lounge but the rest of the money is to be spent on what everyone else wants. If he wants to be part of the club, thems the rules.
LUCAS: You could always go back to your vegan women...
Lou's face drops and he leaves most of the money on the table for the boys.
Andrew and Natasha bump into Harry and Summer yet again. Summer goes to the counter to order while Andrew stops to have a chat with Harry. He apologises for his toolish behaviour last night - he was just surprised Harry and Summer got together - but good for him. Harry's happy his cousin has decided to accept things. Oh, Harry...
Meanwhile, Natasha is all OTT nice to Summer, telling her what a sweet guy Harry is before ‘casually' bringing up the fact that Harry “won”.
SUMMER: Won what?
NATASHA: You're too funny. Pretending you didn't know about the little competition they had over you.
SUMMER: Natasha there was no competition.
NATASHA: It must be a big ego boost two guys fighting over you. Lucky I came along when I did and distracted Andrew; it made it easier for Harry to win.
SUMMER: No you have no idea what you're talking about. Harry would never do that to me.
NATASHA: Well that's not what Andrew said. Maybe you should ask Harry.
Summer stares at the boys.
Third Commercial Break
Andrew is telling Chris that “Ramsay and Hoyland are the new Posh and Becks” when Summer returns with drinks looking very serious. The boys head off with Natasha leaving Summer and Harry to chat.
SUMMER: I'm going to ask you a question and I want you to tell me the truth. Did you and Andrew have a competition over me?
HARRY: (squirming) ... Yeah. But let me explain, OK...
SUMMER: (angry and upset) No. I thought you were a nice guy but you're just as bad as Andrew.
HARRY: Summer please just...
SUMMER: No, I can't believe you would do this to me. You're not the winner, you're both losers.
She walks out on Harry.
(Tomorrow on Neighbours)
SUMMER: You and Harry deserve each other.
ANDREW: Blame me, hate me, I don't care. But he deserves better than that. You and he should be together.
(Ringo and Naomi are chatting)
RINGO: ... Unless there's some deep, dark secret.
NAOMI: What's with the twenty questions today?
RINGO: I guess I'll catch you later then.
NAOMI: Yes, you will.
(Naomi sends Ringo a text of her in a spa wearing a bikini - Zeke sees it)
RINGO: Oi! She wants me to come to her place for a spa.
ZEKE: Well what are you doing here? Go!
(Ringo heads to Naomi's but she starts ‘drowning' in the water)
