- Mark saying he can't concentrate on the case and on Kate - but he chooses Kate
- Kate teasing Sophie about being grown up and suddenly interested in boys
- Toadie telling Jade she has no right to tell him how to raise Callum
- Jade telling Toadie he is not Callum's dad
- Sonya telling Jade that Toadie is Callum's dad and she has to be OK with that
Sonya goes back into the house profusely apologising for Jade, but Toadie is pretty angry.
TOADIE: Just because she wears lycra all the time it doesn't make her an expert on parenting.
Wait, what? Um, OK. Anyway, Sonya tries to say that Jade was trying to help but Toadie doesn't think that insulting his parenting was all that helpful. Their conversation turns into voice- over as we see Jade doing sit- ups to work off her frustration. Back to No. 30, Sonya thinks that the whole parenting thing is new for everyone, they'll sometimes get it wrong but Toadie doesn't think Sonya does - and she assures him that she definitely does. Callum strolls out wanting to know if everything is cool and it is. He wants another glass of orange juice though which Toadie vetoes because Cal's already had one glass and that's his quota.
CALLUM: Quota's are for losers.
We cut back to Jade who is now doing step- ups to work off the energy while voice- over Sonya says that Jade is outside feeling embarrassed, although she looks anything but that. Toadie thinks she should be embarrassed and Sonya apologises for Jade again.
Lucas and Sophie are playing Guitar Hero and Lucas obviously is not any good at it. He claims the guitar is broken but Sophie laughs at him and he says that she knew full well that he wasn't any good at the game when he moved in. Sophie knows, that's why she voted for Kyle to be their housemate! Kate storms out ranting about her conditioner being empty and Lucas quickly slithers off. Kate is annoyed that Sophie is using her conditioner instead of Sophie using her own but Sophie has a pretty good reason: Kate's stuff is better. Lucas pipes with a tip for Soph - the most important thing about nicking stuff is not to take the last drop. Kate's still ranting about Sophie using her things (hairdryer, hairband...although Soph clarifies that it was HER hairband), and I find it all sort of strangely territorial because if I had a little sister I wouldn't begrudge her using my hairdryer, but whatever.
Brennan arrives to whisk Kate off to her date and where they're going is a "secret". Sophie looks like she feels a little left out by everything and Lucas mock- pouts at her rather hilariously.
Toadie hobbles out stating that Jade is still avoiding him but Sonya thinks it would be best to give her some space. Sonya is still apologising for Jade but Toadie tells her that she shouldn't be apologising because she's not in the wrong, Jade is. Cal walks out wanting to go kick his footy around but apparently that's not a good idea as Jade is outside. Sonya suggests that go check out what Sophie's up to while Toadie goes to pay the Kennedy's a visit to see how they're going after Donna's departure. Toadie wants Sonya to make sure she doesn't let Jade walk all over her.
Callum has now taken Lucas' place with the guitar and he sets a new record, declaring "I rock!". Lucas laughs that he's not exactly a gracious winner and Callum dances around to further prove his point. Lucas goes to wash his socks and jocks while Sophie is off with the fairies. She suddenly walks back her room saying she'll be back in a sec.
A park with loud chirping birds
Brennan and Kate are lying on a picnic blanket being all schmoopy with strawberry feeding included. That chat about Donna's farewell and Kate says that she misses her already. Mark makes her feel better about it by kissing her and it helps, so he keeps kissing her to make her feel even better.
Sophie is nowhere to be seen and Callum is getting bored on the sofa strapped to his guitar. Soph finally makes an appearance but goes straight to her mobile to call Kate. Kate is still at the park and glances at her phone and rejects the call thinking Sophie wants to borrow something of hers and Mark quickly pulls her back down for more pashing. Bad sistering AND guardianing, 101. Sophie leaves a message on Kate's voicemail telling her to come home because something has happened while Callum creeps up on Sophie like a ninja but Sophie refuses to tell him what's wrong and quickly shoos him out of the house.
Number 30 Poolside
Sonya walks over to Jade holding a pile of things. Firstly, there's her police record. Secondly, there's Toadies adoption records, and lastly, there's Harold's Ramsay Street Book. Sonya wants Jade to know why she's glad that Toadie is raising Cal since she herself had such a messy past. She tells Jade where the stuff goes when she's finished looking at them.
Sophie walks in asking Lou whether he's seen Kate but he hasn't. He goes off to take a call from Susan who presumably wants to put an order in for dinner and while he walks off, Sophie walks towards the shelves and it's clear what the poor girl's problem is as she looks indecisively at the range of feminine hygiene (which is really one of things that looks like there's way too many to choose from at first but later as one gets pickier, it seems like there's totally not enough). Lou finishes up his call and Sophie pretends that she was looking for a toothbrush and she grabs one and goes to pay. She opens up her wallet and realises she only has $5 which won't be enough to buy pads/tampons/other and the toothbrush as well but she pays with it anyway.
Jade is sitting on the couch flipping through the Ramsay Street Book full of pictures of mullet- Toad. She picks up Toad's references and reads off of it how wonderful Toadie is and smiles to herself before saying:
JADE: Still doesn't explain the mullet.
She then picks up Sonya's police files (where her address is listed as 5 Leslie Street, Balaclava for anyone who's interested) but quickly goes to put everything away when she hears Lucas entering the house. She drops Sonya's files but quickly kicks them under the couch, but Lucas still sees her suspiciously shoving things in the drawer and he goes to pick it up, wondering why she's snooping at Toadie's adoption records.
Lucas is annoyed because mates don't go through other mates' stuff, but Jade is annoyed because mates should knock before going into other mates' houses! She assures him that she was looking at the Ramsay Street Book that Sonya gave her and the adoption papers must have gotten mixed up in it. Toadie/Sonya/Callum return home and Callum is talking about Sophie going all weird on him after he won at guitar hero. Lucas and Jade stand there looking at them with hilarious expressions on their faces that say "nothing is going on" but in such an exaggerated way that you know something has to be going on. Especially Lucas. Sonya apologises to Toadie which he accepts and Jade offers to make dinner. Sonya is grateful but it suddenly turns into fear when Jade confesses that Lucas saw her with the file, and it's coupled with a freaky sound effect like in the movies when the serial killer walks into the room and is creeping up behind you.
Number 30 Backyard
Sonya is freaking out that Lucas saw her files but Jade tells her they're under the couch. Sonya's not too thrilled at the prospect of Lucas being suspicious but Jade doesn't think it matters what Lucas thinks. Sonya disagrees - she'll deal with retrieving the files from under the couch and demands that Jade deals with suspicious Lucas.
Lucas is drinking coffee and admiring a motorcycle in a magazine. Jade looks at him from a distance and just as she's about to walk over, Sophie runs up still on the search for Kate. Sophie wants to ask Jade for her help but Jade is glancing over at Lucas who gets up to leave his table. Jade tries to get his attention and tells poor Sophie to wait a second but Lucas doesn't want to talk to Jade at all. Jade turns her attention back to Sophie however the distraction has made Sophie chicken out so she walks away to find a way to sort it out herself....
....which is to steal it. She walks up and puts a pack of Kotex in her bag (the constant close- ups almost look like blatant product placement but considering there's a variety of all the brands, it doesn't seem likely...). Lou, however, has seen her and thinks it's a dare of some sort but she can't respond and he sighs, saying he thought she'd be the last kid who he'd have to worry about with this sort of thing. He asks to see what she's taken but she runs out of the store where Kate and Mark happen to be going to get coffees.
Kate wants to know what's wrong and Brennan senses that he should make himself scarce so he offers to buy the coffees. Lou walks up to them and tells Kate that Sophie was shoplifting. Soph is forced to admit the truth.
SOPHIE: Look, I got my period, that's what. You told me I couldn't borrow your stuff without asking, but you wouldn't answer your phone and I couldn't find you anywhere. I didn't have enough money after I bought the stupid blue toothbrush, what else was I supposed to do? Look, I only stole five bucks. You'll have to wait until I get my pocket money.
Whoa, "period"?! No G- rated euphemism? And wow, how awkward for the young thing. Kate looks suitably ashamed and Lou looks like he feels all sorts of terrible.
Kate calls herself a horrible sister but Brennan says she's a great sister and Sophie knows that. Brennan leaves because Kate thinks she had better deal with the problem herself, but before leaving he wants Kate to give Sophie his love and jokes that if she shoplifts again he'll arrest her! After he's gone, Soph walks out and Kate gives her a hug and apologises for not being there. Sophie tells her it's not her fault and she does so much for her already but it's just that she freaked out even though she knew it was coming. Kate hugs her again and Sophie takes up Kate's suggestion of a sundae at Harolds which is weird because I probably wouldn't want to see Lou again for months after blurting that out but that's just me.
Jade is seeking out Lucas again and he finally stops to talk to her. She tries to convince him that she was checking Toadie out because she doesn't know what kind of guy he is and the adoption papers were just what she happened to find. Lucas is still peeved that she was going through other people's belongings but she insists that she was merely looking out for Sonya and he can believe her or not, it's up to him.
Kate and Sophie walk in for their sundae and Lou teases Sophie that she doesn't need to nick off with it this time as the sundae is on him! Toadie hobbles in with Callum who walks in complaining about Jade's dinner plans while simultaneously giving Sophie a dirty look. Sophie goes over to challenge Callum to another round of guitar hero (passing the message "through" Toadie although Callum is there, but ignoring her) as a way of making up which works. Cal gets up to get a drink and Lucas takes his place.
Lucas takes Toad outside and has a quiet chat to him about Jade. Lucas thinks Toadie knows about her snooping but Toad's only talking about the parenting issue. Either way, Lucas lets Toadie know that Jade was looking through his adoption files and that he doesn't trust her.
Jade is relaxed because she doesn't think Lucas will say anything but Sonya's not so sure. Toadie walks in and immediately launches into a tirade about Jade going through his things which is unacceptable. He demands that she packs her bags and leaves.

- Lou telling Callum that Lucas is asset- rich, cash- poor
- Brennan having a serious discussion with Lucas about mechanics getting in trouble
- Lucas trying to ask his friend for more dodgy jobs

- Sonya asking Lucas where he got the money and why he's lying
