Lyn warns Steph not to tell Dan it's his baby; Steph says it's the right thing to do.
Steph calls Dan and gets his voicemail.
Lucas tells Steph in front of Libby that Dan has asked that she stop calling him.
Toadie tells Declan that Paul can't cover up the embezzlement and fraud.
Paul hires a private investigator and listens in on Toadie's phonecalls.
Rebecca thinks that Diana's trying to set her up.
Rebecca tells Diana that the Kram gig can't continue with only one bouncer, but everyone tells Rebecca she has to go ahead now as everyone's arrived to watch them.
Rebecca cancels the gig whilst all the guests are yelling for Kram to come onstage. Rebecca's worried there's going to be a riot, but I'd image that the Charlie's bar extras are just thrilled to have a speaking part.
Paul is listening to Toadie's phone conversations but it's nothing interesting. Kate walks in and tells Paul that there's trouble at Charlie's.
Paul comes over to try and help Rebecca, announcing that Kram will play after all. The extras cheer (that's another line, and more money, surely?). Kate has put out a Facebook alert and got some guys who are security for her dance troupe.
Steph and Libby are on the sofa, and Lib is handing over baby magazines to her friend to help her through the last months of her pregnancy. She knows what men are like and recalls Dan finding out that she was pregnant...
Lib decides to leave, and Steph says she's off to her mum's for dinner. Toadie comes home just as Libby leaves, and Steph tells him how Libby is being so kind, and that she mentioned Dan. Steph admits that she feels she should tell Dan it's his only chance to have a child.
Well, it's all kicking off at Charlie's, and it looks like it might be the 70s again with that hair. Let's hope that the extras are really fans of Kram, otherwise they turned up for an acting job and were deafened in the process.
Diana appears and is surprised that Rebecca managed to find a solution. Rebecca shows off that she's managed to cover her costs five times over by raising the drink prices; Diana is impressed. She tells Paul that he married a good businesswoman, but it's a shame he doesn't deserve her.
Paul walks away and joins Rebecca at the till, wondering what happened.
REBECCA: Oh, Diana used my security for a convention.
PAUL: Ah, right.
REBECCA: She offered to help eventually but I turned her down.
PAUL: Yup. Well, Diana's help always comes with a catch.
Paul does the quotation marks finger waggle for help' but someone should tell him that you're supposed to do that as you say the word, not three seconds after it.
Rebecca thinks that the jury's out on Diana she can't work out if her attitude is all about business, or if she's trying to get at Paul.
Over at Lyn's Toadie is taking Charlie home to bed whilst Steph and Lyn chat. Steph tells her mum that she feels like a coward for not telling him about the baby. Lyn thinks Steph should give herself a break, and says she'll ring Kate to cover at the store tomorrow so they can go for lunch tomorrow. Steph loves the idea, but Libby bursts in wondering what her bestie's doing tomorrow as they have to go through her checklist of things for the baby.
Steph isn't sure and might have plans, but Lib steamrollers it and says she'll be over after the gym.
Rebecca presents Paul with an enormous plate of sandwiches and chips. He bemoans the circulation numbers of the Erinsborough News, but Rebecca reminds him that they're both managing their businesses the best they can. Diana comes in, ordering a long black. Rebecca goes to get it, and Paul tells Diana to stop getting to him through his wife.
DIANA: She's smart, she's engaging. Her only flaw she married you.
She now tells Paul that she's hired Jarrod Rebecchi as her lawyer. Perhaps Paul's worried that his former lawyer will break a confidence and tell her all his secrets...Paul refutes that.
DIANA: Well, then you've got nothing to worry about.
Declan and Kate are taking India for a walk to the lake and ask Paul if he wants to join them; he doesn't, as he's got more interesting things to do like speak with Toadie. Paul wonders why Toadie's working at a weekend for Diana, and as they chat, Declan sits by the lake and watches them.
PAUL: I suppose I can trust you to uphold client confidentiality?
TOADIE: (grinning cheekily) Diana's a bit of a pain in the rear, is she?
He raises his eyebrows and gets in his car.
Libby has organised Steph's baby checklist with a RAG status, and Steph is impressed. Toadie returns home.
LIBBY: Operation Baby Checklist! Enter if you have something constructive to add.
TOADIE: Oh, I'm all out of constructive. I have some meetings to get to and forgot some files.
Libby also produces some essential oils for Steph to be pampered, and says she'll make some camomile tea. At that point, Lyn hobbles in, bent over. She holds her back. Lyn tells Steph that she went to the gym she signed up as a member. Libby goes to make tea.
LYN: I went to the gym to talk her out of bothering you today.
STEPH: Well, that obviously worked. I've been smothered with gifts and herbal teas.
Ben and Charlie appear with a baby chair rocker that Libby and Lyn are going to put together.
Cut to later and the chair rocker is done. It even plays music like a bad mobile phone. Wow, that's going to be really, really annoying. Plus, it also vibrates. Well, that's...useful. Lyn thinks she needs a chair like that. Okaaaaay.
Libby goes on and on about how lovely this is for Toadie it's his first baby which makes it really special. She remembers what Drew was like when she was expecting Ben blah, blah, blah... Plus, she wishes Ben could have known his dad.
Cue Steph's awkward face.
Diana is talking to Toadie, but it sounds more like an interview. Toadie suggests it sounds like she's trying to find out about Paul, but he's not at liberty to discuss any previous clients.
TOADIE: Diana, why don't you tell me? What's this all about and why are you here, and why are you so interested in Paul?
DIANA: The bottom line is that Paul works for Lassiter's, he's an employee, and if there's anything I should know about his personal or business practices, I'd like to know.
TOADIE: I'm sorry, I can't help you any further.
DIANA: Well, thank you, Jarrod, for your time. I'll be in touch with you about the job.
She leaves, annoyed.
Paul walks out of the Erinsborough News offices, wondering how his meeting went. Toadie won't tell Paul anything about his conversation, so Paul threatens to take Toadie down with him, if he goes down for embezzlement. Toadie reminds Paul that he has nothing on him.
PAUL: So you think that makes you safe?
TOADIE: Yeah, I do. You say you're gonna bring me down? With what? Go home. You should spend some time with your family.
Paul is left unsettled.
Kate and Declan sit at a table, having enjoyed their morning. India sits cutely in a highchair, although it's not very high. Rebeccaca brings their lunch over but Declan rushes off to see Toadie at the bar, wondering about his conversation with Paul earlier. Toadie assures Declan that Rebecca is not going to get hurt.
Rebecca shoos Declan back to his daughter and his date, and Dec tells Kate that he had to ask Toadie about a work thing. She presses him, and he talks about food, completely ignoring the question.
Libby calls for Ben because they're going home, and Ben wants Charlie to come over. Libby agrees, then says she'll pick up Callum, too, so that Steph can have some time to relax she looks tired. Lib and the boys leave, with Charlie doing some adorable faces and swinging an imaginary cricket bat.
Lyn tells her daughter that she does look tired, and offers to run her a bath so she can get an early night. But as Lyn talks, Steph stops her. She reminds her mum that when Lyn learnt that Valda was her real mother, she was really hurt. (Yay! Valda mention!) Lyn knows where this is going...
STEPH: I have to tell Dan.
LYN: Well, you don't...
STEPH: I'm, no! I won't raise a child, with him not knowing who his father is. And if you can't count on your mother to tell you the truth, who can you count on?
Cut to later out the back at number 30. Steph has got Dan's voicemail again. She leaves a message begging Dan to call her. She stands on the balcony with Lyn who suggests writing a letter to him.
STEPH: What am I supposed to say? Dear Dan, I'm sorry to hear about your accident, and by the way, you're having a baby.
Lyn suggests getting on a plane, then.
Cut to later and Steph is trying to write a letter to Dan. About ten attempts have already ended up as screwed up paper balls. Seriously, who actually does that??! Who wastes GOOD, cream writing paper ten times over? Practice in a note pad first. Or, if you have to waste the paper, wouldn't you tear it up and bin it or recycle it?? Who actually screws up paper like that and leaves it on the table in a pile? No- one, that's who.
Toadie comes home and Steph explains that she has to take this risk. Toadie gets is, but suggests she use his phone, so then Dan might answer. Well, that's better than wasting a whole tree on one letter, isn't it? Steph agrees.
Paul is at home listening in on Toadie's calls again. He hears him ordering a pizza, then the next call checking up on it, which annoys him and he rips off the headphones!
Steph's on the phone and it's ringing. She puts it down in a panic before Toadie makes her call again. Dan answers, and Steph begs him not to put the phone down again, it's really important.
Paul sits down again to hear the beginning of Steph's conversation with Dan. He hears Steph telling Dan that he's the father.
Steph and Toadie are on the sofa; she feels so much better, and Toadie tells her that everything's going to be okay.
Paul is gleefully listening in Steph says that everyone thinks the baby belongs to Toadie, and she'd like to keep it that way.
