Sophie suggests that Harry could get "discovered" and whisked off to America.
The building site owner tells Toadie that he doesn't know who he's working for.
Paul offers Toadie a job working for him.
Donna passes her driving test.
Steph worries how they'll pay for the big wedding Lyn wants for them.
Sonya and Toadie meet up for a coffee.
Outside the Coffee Shop
Sonya has forgotten her jacket and comes back to get it. Toadie tells her he's really happy that they're friends again - as long as her boyfriend David doesn't mind. When Sonya has gone, Paul comes over. He offers him a job as his legal counsel, paid with a retainer. Toadie tells Paul that they're morally incompatible, but Paul shows him a large cheque, saying it's a "signing- up bonus". Toadie looks tempted for a second, especially when Paul says it would be handy money for paying for the wedding, but Toadie tells him he's not selling out - at least not today.
Sophie is on the phone to someone, telling them that Harry will "be there".
Harry comes in and tells Sophie he's off to cover Lyn's shift at Harold's Store. He asks Sophie why she's smiling, but she says there's no reason. When Harry has gone, Sophie looks down at a letter - with an "Austraian National Basketball Academy" letterhead.
Paul is stunned to hear that Donna got 97% on her driving test! Donna asks if she can drive the Audi! She says that Kate will be driving next, and Rebecca and Paul look rather concerned that Declan is going to be teaching her(!)
Declan is teaching Kate to drive with a cushion for a steering wheel! Kate says they'd be better off in a real car. Sophie asks Kate to fix the washing machine, and while she's out of the room, Sophie shows Declan the basketball letter. It's a tryout for Harry at basketball in Melbourne - today! She doesn't know how to tell Harry - if he gets in, he has to go to live in Sydney. Declan offers to go with Sophie to break the news to Harry.
Declan and Sophie are waiting anxiously for Harry to read the letter. He's not mad - in fact he's pleased with Sophie for entering her. Declan offers to cover his shift at Harold's while Harry goes to the tryout. Harry agrees - but he doesn't feel confident about getting in. He asks them not to tell Kate yet.
Lyn, Susan, Donna, Rebecca, Libby and Steph are having a meeting about Steph's wedding. Everyone has got a job and Rebecca comments that Lyn really is going "all out". Rebecca offers the use of Charlie's for the reception. Then Lyn gives Steph a big cheque and says that the wedding is on her. Steph says she can't accept it and everyone looks uncomfortable.
Donna suggests that they should just text the wedding invitations rather than bother getting any printed! Meanwhile, Steph and Lyn are hissing at each other in the hallway, with Steph trying to give Lyn back her cheque. Lyn admits that she's taken out a loan and Steph snorts in exasperation.
Toadie comes in and Steph shows him the cheque. He blinks in shock but says that Lyn does have a point - they have to make it look "real". Steph says there's "real" and then there's a 3 course meal in Lanzini's for 120 guests! Toadie says they'll have to reach a compromise somehow.
Toadie bumps into Sonya at Charlie's - she is buying elderflower cordial which is apparently hard to get elsewhere. He tells her that he's got a potential new job but he's not sure about the new client - he's not all that moral. Sonya says that Toadie is strong and moral, so he might be able to keep the client on the straight and narrow. Toadie looks thoughtful.
Paul comes over unbidden with a contract for Toadie. Toadie says if he accepts, he has to do things his own way. Paul agrees.

Lyn is on the phone to Lanzini's when Toadie and Steph come around. They give her back her cheque and Toadie tells them that he's going pay for the wedding - he's got a new client. Steph and Lyn are both surprised.
TOADIE:(giving Lyn back her cheque) We will have a big wedding. Just paid for by us.
Susan and Libby are chatting about how over the top Lyn is going with the wedding. Libby says she's really quite glad that Karl is so tight! (Although as I recall, Libby and Drew had a HUGE wedding!)
SUSAN: It's just not how I'd imagined Steph and Toadie's wedding.
LIBBY: A year ago, I couldn't even imagine them together!
Sophie comes in with Harry's basketball kit - he's just off to the tryouts. Kate and Declan come in as he's leaving and Declan covers for him, saying Harry has got practice.
Harry is interviewed, interspersed with footage of him playing basketball.
INTERVIEWER: Firstly, what do you get out of it?
HARRY: I love playing.
INTERVIEWER: Everyone loves playing. What does it give you?
HARRY: Well...when I'm not playing, everything's kind of messy. Always just behind things. It's not like that when I'm on court.
INTERVIEWER: It's obvious your skills are up there...
HARRY: It's more than that. When I'm on the court I know what's happening, everything's clear.
INTERVIEWER: A place in the Academy would mean you'd have to leave home. Do you think you're ready for that?
HARRY:(hesitates) Living away from home wouldn't be a problem. Sounds like an amazing opportunity.
INTERVIEWER: It is.
HARRY: And I'm really glad you're giving me the chance.
INTERVIEWER: Tell me a little about yourself, outside of basketball.
HARRY: Uh...I play piano...I spend a lot of my time playing or listening to music...I take photos, read comic books...apart from that I just hang out with my friends, hang out with my sisters...they drive me mental, but they're pretty cool.
INTERVIEWER: Sounds like things are pretty good in Erinsborough.
HARRY: They are.
INTERVIEWER: And you're ready to give all that up when you join us.
HARRY: You said...when?!
Sophie hugs Harry and Declan is chuffed too. Apparently Harry was the best they saw! He's going to have a think about it before he tells Kate.
Kate comes into the room and looks at them suspiciously. Declan distracts her by offering her a driving lesson.
Steph tells Lyn she's sorry - she knows Lyn was just trying to help, and she really does appreciate the way Lyn has stood by them.
LYN: I just wanted you to...I just wanted something good to come out of this.
Susan comes in as Steph is leaving. She looks at Lyn and decides to put the kettle on.
LYN: I had it all planned, you know, the perfect day...the perfect marriage... (to herself) ...they couldn't help but live happily ever after!
Lyn tells Susan that Toadie is going to pay for the wedding as he has a big new client. She doesn't look too happy though.
Kate and Declan are back from the driving lesson and Donna is amazed that their relationship is still intact(!)
Harry and Sophie are making dinner.
SOPHIE: We're having lasagne!
HARRY:(in a French accent) Oh yes, we uh...we take from ze microwave...and we put eet in ze oven...and zhen, uh...bon appetit, uh?!
DONNA: Wow, you guys have gone all out!
Declan goes to help Sophie with the dinner while Harry sits down with Kate in the living room.
KATE: When you think about how far we've come since we moved here, and how hard it was to get started...but we're doing OK now, our little team!
Harry, Sophie and Declan exchange looks.
Toadie is reading Paul's contract when Paul comes over. Toadie says he'll sign as long as all business is done ethically. Also, noone should know Toadie is working for Paul, including Rebecca. Toadie signs the contract, but Lyn in in the background and sees them shaking hands on the deal. She look horrified.
When Paul has gone, Lyn goes over to confront Toadie. He admits that Steph doesn't know about the deal with Paul and swears Lyn to secrecy. She tells Toadie he's sold his soul.
Tomorrow on Neighbours
LYN: You are dragging him into one of your dodgy schemes!
PAUL: The only thing dodgy is your ridiculous accusations.
MICHAEL:(showing Lucas an advert) Thought you might be interested. It's teaching the kids motor mechanics.
MICHAEL:(to Lucas outside the interview) There's been another applicant...
STEPH: Sorry, I'm not late am I? It was a bit of a rush getting here...
PAUL: We're having a bit of a meet and greet.
DECLAN: What do I do?
PAUL: Well, I'd like you to run it.
ANDREW:(to Natasha) I'm not letting errand- boy run anything.
DECLAN:(to Andrew) Did someone put you in charge while I was out of the room?!
PAUL:(angrily) because the whole world revolves around Declan Napier and his *stupid* temper!
DECLAN:(leaping to his feet and tearing off his Lassiter's jacket) Right, that's it!
