- Declan and Toadie coming up with the evidence against Paul.
- Toadie telling Declan to call Diana Marshall (Paul's boss) and Declan making the call.
Rebecca arrives home from holiday in time for Indy's first birthday and to hear about Donna's engagement. Paul has even made her a fancy welcome home brekkie too although he may not be so happy if he knew about the text message Declan has just received from Diana Marshall – Investigation underway. Confidential. Diana Marshall. He deletes the text then heads out to get the supplies for Indy's party, refusing Paul's offer of Lassiters supplying it.
Declan brings Toadie up to speed about the text he got from Diana.
Paul is telling Rebecca about the $100k investment into PirateNet from an “old Lassiters client” and she is thrilled to hear about the money. She wants to call him and say thanks but Paul quickly says that he wants to remain anonymous.
Declan confirms that the DVD has been destroyed and Toadie wants him to keep digging in case there is anything else that could incriminate anyone else… including Rebecca.
“What a perfect homecoming” Rebecca tells Paul as she is so happy and relieved to hear about the money.
Callum is telling Sophie about the best wedding pressie ever – a pizza maker as Lyn hands Steph a couple of packs of thank you cards, so she can thank people for their pressies. Lyn moves away and Kate spots the cards in Steph's hands and remarks that she's organised. Steph replies that she thought Lyn would find a new project now the wedding is over and Kate lets slip about Terry liking Lyn. Steph starts to put 2+2 together and between them, they arrange for Terry to help Lyn in the store as Kate can't pull a double shift and there is nobody else left to cover.
Kate tries to talk to Declan about Terry liking Lyn but he's rather pre- occupied about Indy's party and moans to her about Paul wanting to splash the Lassiters cash to make everyone one big happy family.
After opening some letters that have been wrongly delivered to #22, its Kate's turn to moan to him – that is another month money has been taken out of their trust fund account only to be replaced a couple of days later. “How much?” he asks and she replies “a lot.”
Lyn is rushed off her feet and even her son- in- law can't get priority service! He moans to Steph when he sits down and suggests she help but Steph has a rue smile and comments that help is on its way and two seconds later, Terry walks in the door. He chats briefly with Sophie (to see how Kate is) before Steph stands up to greet him and in the background Lyn mutters “that's all I need.”
As Lyn delivers Steph's order, Steph announces to her that she's got some help for her – Terry but Lyn points out that she hasn't got time to train anyone and apologises to Terry for wasting his time.
LYN: I'll be fine.
TOADIE: No, no you won't be, I'm fading away here.
CALLUM: And we ordered our milkshakes in like 2005.
Lyn apologises and rushes off into the kitchen. Terry announces that he makes a killer milkshake and after getting the flavours Sophie and Callum want, heads off to make them along with Toadie's ham and cheese toastie.
And FF in time and Terry is delivering orders to the customers although Lyn isn't pleased about him spending more time in the kitchen than serving! However maybe that is a good thing as he's proving to be a bit of a disaster in the store (knocking over a cup cake stand when going to wipe up a spill) that finally call's time on his “help”, with Lyn telling him that Charlie would be better! “I was only trying to help,” Terry offers before handing back his apron and leaving the store.
SOPHIE: That was really mean.
CALLUM: He was right, that was a killer milkshake.
STEPH: He was doing you a favour mum.
Kate is still struggling with the concept of Paul hosting a 1 year olds birthday party as she and Declan make their way through the complex. She has to remind him too that Paul does care about him and Indy when he starts moaning that it's all show from Paul.
Number 22/Lassiters Complex
Paul takes the mickey out of Rebecca wanting everything colour co- ordinated as they return from shopping laden down with bags. Donna thoroughly approves though and tells Declan about it when he calls. The call then takes a serious nature when she realises that Indy is chocking because she's got something in her mouth and on the other end of the line Declan begins to freak out.
And as we head into the first commercial break, today's trip down memory land is to 2000 when Tess (Dee and Steph) went horse riding in 2000 (episode 3637 in the archive if you want to read more).
Declan and Kate rush into the hospital wanting information. Paul explains she was chocking on a marshmallow (Donna opened a packet of them that Rebecca brought home) she found on the floor. Declan is beside himself (and furious at Donna and Ringo who were babysitting Indy) but Jodie reassures him that she is fine and leads him to where she is and through the glass he can she is lying in a bed calm as anything unlike her dad!
Lyn is bemoaning her bad day at the store as Steph helps her re- stock the cup cakes Terry knocked onto the floor. Steph confesses that she called Terry in in the hope they'd get on well together and so Lyn would leave her and Toadie alone, explaining that they need some space. Lyn twigs that Steph still thinks she's interfering and admits it's because Sonya knows but Steph is quick to reply that Sonya won't do or say anything.
STEPH: If you really want to help me, go out with Terry.
STEPH: Go on, it will do you good.
LYN: If you really want to help me put this in the kitchen (hands Steph the cup cake box). All I need is something to eat.
And when Steph goes to put the box in the kitchen, she finds a round of sandwiches made by Terry for Lyn to eat.
A very glum Terry is sharing a bench with Sophie, Callum and Charlie, joining in reluctantly with the Callum's lame joke.
SOPHIE: That was pretty bad.
CHARLIE: That is rubbish.
CALLUM: Everyone's a critic. What do you think Terry?
(Terry isn't paying attention)
TERRY: (suddenly paying attention) Oh, hilarious.
Steph and Lyn exit the store and Steph announces to the kids its time to go home, leaving Lyn to chat with Terry.
Lyn begins by thanking him for the sandwich then apologising to him for what happened in the store. He's still rather down in the dumps but cheers up when Lyn says that she'll go on a date with him… on condition he stops suddenly appearing at things she will be at. He agrees to her condition… because after 1 date she'll be chasing him!
LYN: (struggling for words) Right.
Declan sits with Indy as everyone else stands outside. A paediatrician comes into the room (Paul paid her fee) to reassure him that Indy is fine and she leaves to get the paperwork completed so he can take his daughter home.
Paul then enters the room, glad to see his granddaughter is fine, although Declan isn't appreciative of Paul's help, forcibly telling him that he doesn't want Paul's money or anything to do with him.
Donna apologises to Declan when he exits Indy's room and he confirms that she's fine and can go home. He apologises for yelling at Donna and Ringo and thanks them for helping at the house but Ringo points out that it was all down to Paul – he pulled the marshmallow out of her mouth and got her breathing again. Donna adds that it was Paul who drove them to the hospital too when the ambulance was delayed.
REBECCA: You should have seen him in action darling, he saved her life.
Declan is back in Indy's room, telling her that they will always remember her 1st birthday! Rebecca joins him and hopes they don't have to go through anything similar to this in the future.
REBECCA: Welcome to parenting.
They then contemplate the future with what Indy can do (and what Declan won't let her do!) before she asks if something happened between him and Paul when she was away but he plays down that anything is wrong.
Kate remarks to Declan that the trust fund money is back in the account, which he is happy to hear. He tells her that Paul's made a follow up appointment with the paediatrician and Kate points out to him that Paul loves Indy just as much as everyone else does.
Toadie drops by to chat with Declan and Kate heads upstairs to bath Indy. He hands over to Declan everything he has on Paul contract wise for him to give to Diana Marshall.
TOADIE: Paul cannot cover this up.
Declan wonders if she'll go to the police and Toadie replies that it's a possibility, adding that embezzlement usually carries a jail sentence and given everything, Paul could be away for a long time! Toadie decides to leave the folder with the info in Declan's hands, saying that it's up to him what he does with it before leaving.
Declan apologises to Paul for going off on one with him earlier on but he's cool with it as he's been in Declan's shoes too.
PAUL: You, India, you're my family and I would do anything to protect you. You just remember that alright.
Paul and Rebecca head upstairs to child- proof things and Declan goes to his bag containing the folder Toadie gave him obviously debating what to do.
Number 22 (next day)
Declan hands Paul the folder Toadie brought round the night before, announcing that he's giving Paul a lifeline – he wants Paul to explain and fix it. Paul tries to explain that nothing is ever clean cut and juggling capital between entities is standard business practice.
DECLAN: This is illegal Paul and you've involved my mum.
PAUL: You know what; I shifted money to PirateNet for Rebecca. Yes, her business is going under because you lost her biggest client. You know what, in 6 months time PirateNet will be back on its feet and I will return the money.
DECLAN: So what happens then when something else goes wrong huh? How much trouble will my mum be in then?
DECLAN: If you won't sort this out, I'm taking it to the police.
PAUL: Really?! You see the money's in her account. Yes you and I both know she is innocent but do you think the fraud squad is going to see it that way? Eh!
PAUL: That is why I kept you both in the dark in the first place. Oh yes, if I go down your mother is going to come with me.
