- Andrew and Summer fighting with one another
- Harold seeing Sonya and Troy kissing
- Sonya telling Harold it's none of his business
Harold and Toadie are putting up decorations for Lyn and Summer's farewell party tomorrow. Harold wants to tell Toadie about the kiss he witnessed between Sonya and Troy, but they're interrupted by a door knock. Harold's delighted to see that Carolyn has made a surprise visit to Erinsborough and they share a smooch, disturbing Toadie along the way. Carolyn quickly wraps Toadie in a hug and says she's happy to meet him.
Number 26/Number 22
Summer's packing up a few stray belongings when she finds the zombie badge Andrew bought her. Chris calls in to film her on his camera but stops when he realises she's upset about Andrew.
Paul tries to snap Andrew out of his funky mood by suggesting they have a DVD night, but the first DVD Andrew picks out is a zombie flick.
Number 30 - Next Morning
Lyn tells Summer she should be outside enjoying herself with her friends but Summer doesn't appear to be in a very sociable mood. Carolyn pops in to drop off a box of tea and greets Summer and Lyn, who have no idea who this random chirpy lady is. Tash and Chris find Summer and tell her not to stress about Andrew, but Summer pretends that she doesn't care. They drag her outside to try and make her have some fun.
Number 30 Backyard
Chris films the party while Summer and Tash have a chat by the pool.
TASH: Kangaroo Flat? What is that, some apartment for Skippy?
SUMMER: It's a name, Tash, and that's not even where we're living.
Chris pretends that he's going to dunk Tash in the pool so she runs away shrieking - or more like totters away in her wedges and outfit more appropriate for a nightclub. Lyn and Susan are sharing a cuppa (courtesy of Carolyn) on some lounge chairs and having a chat about Harold and his missus. Susan smiles and says she's going to miss having someone to gossip with, but Lyn says she prefers to call it “human interest”. Back by the pool, Chris and Tash are surprised to learn that Summer hasn't watched her going away DVD yet and therefore hasn't seen Andrew's message.
Harold and Carolyn team up together to speak with Troy, who is somewhat bewildered by their interrogation, most of all because it's none of their business. Harold promises Toadie didn't send him, but he just wants to know what Troy's intentions are with Sonya. Troy says he just wants to get to know his son, but Harold replies that he doesn't believe him. Carolyn makes matters worse by asking Troy how much it would take to get him to leave town, but Troy just looks at her like she's crazy. Harold doesn't look too happy with this turn of events either.
Tash has confiscated the camera off Chris so she can watch Andrew's video in peace, but Toadie's also in the lounge room and won't leave, despite Tash's hints.
TASH: We could do with some more guacamole. Summer loves guacamole. Could be the last time she has it.
TOADIE: I'm pretty sure that they've got avocados in Bendigo.
Luckily for Tash, Toadie gets a phone call from Troy and leaves the room anyway. Tash sits down and finds Andrew's video on the camera (after fawning over her own video first). The background music drowns out Andrew's voice, but by the look on Tash's face you know that he's pouring his heart out.
Paul's reading the paper and Andrew's moping on the couch beside him when Tash bursts in the front door and asks Andrew what the hell he's doing.
PAUL: I don't suppose there's any chance of hoping this is going to be quick? (Tash glares at him) OK, well just let me know when The Bold and The Beautiful is finished.
When Paul heads upstairs, Tash says she saw Andrew's DVD message and thinks he's an idiot for not speaking to Summer. Andrew doesn't think there's any point and he's said all he needs to say, but Tash replies that Summer hasn't watched the DVD yet and won't know how he truly feels until she's in Bendigo and it's too late.
TASH: You would never have made a message like that for me when we were together.
TASH: No, it's fine, I get it. You love her, Andrew, and she loves you. Is this really the way you're going to let it end?
First Commercial Break
Harold's worried that he could have handled things better with Troy, but Carolyn says Troy will get over it. Toadie finds them and angrily says that Troy called him and said they were trying to bribe him. Harold replies that it's not what it sounds like and that he was only trying to look out for Toadie. Frustrated, Toadie says that Troy now has ammo up his sleeve if things turn nasty in the future with Callum's guardianship. Not to mention the drama of it all if Sonya finds out. He tells Harold to stay out of his business from now on.
Carolyn isn't happy with the way Toadie left things with Harold and tells him as much. She reminds him that Harold dropped everything when Toadie called for help and that he takes Harold for granted. Toadie protests that he doesn't, just as Harold finds them arguing. Harold knows Toadie's telling the truth, and admits that he and Carolyn shouldn't have approached Troy. The guys apologise to one another and hug things out.
Number 30 Backyard
Chris tries to get Summer to dance or play some SingStar but she's not up for it. Lyn brings over some food for the teens and asks Summer for a quiet word. Lyn wants to check and see if Sum's OK. She knows it'll be sad for Summer to leave her mates, but it's important they make a fresh start in Bendigo as a family. Summer says she understands but the smile falls from her face when Lyn walks away.
Harold shows Carolyn the Ramsay Street book he made before he left, including many photos of Toadie in his mullet days. Carolyn can see how much Erinsborough means to Harold, and how people here are like family, so she suggests they get married while they're in town. Harold's stunned by her impulsiveness but also quite chuffed with the idea.
Second Commercial Break
Chris and Tash ask Summer if there's anything left to load into the car but she's only got two small bags to go. Chris remarks on how strange it is to see the house empty and Summer says she's going to miss having her friends around. Chris thanks her for everything she did to support him, and Tash makes Summer promise she'll keep the fringe, “It kind of works for you”. Summer knows this is Tash- code for ‘I'll miss you' and gives her a hug, saying she'll miss the “big drama queen” too. Chris and Tash head outside and Summer takes a moment to look around her house one last time.
Ramsay Street/Number 22
Chris helps Lyn and Charlie finish packing the car and Lyn gives Chris a hug, saying that he's been a great friend to Summer. Chris thanks Lyn for being so supportive when he came out. In #22 Paul asks Andrew if he ended up going to Summer's party but Andrew grumpily says no.
Summer joins her family and helps to buckle Charlie into the car. Susan finds Lyn and teases her about trying to sneak away without saying goodbye. Paul watches them hug and tells Andrew he actually might miss Lyn once she's gone, “Still, I suppose somebody else will step up to annoy me won't they!”.
With perfect timing, Charlie announces that he has to go to the toilet just as Summer's finished buckling him in. Susan laughs and says she'll take him. Summer stares sadly over at #22 while Chris hugs her. Andrew gets up and looks out the front window. Susan brings Charlie back from the loo and gives Summer a cuddle while Lyn bundles her grandson into the car. Chris gives Summer one last hug before she tearfully climbs into the car.
Lyn says she'll miss Susan, but Susan replies that she'll call her every day. Summer just wants to get going so she can put herself out of her misery. Susan and Chris wave them goodbye - just as Andrew bolts out of his house with a determined look on his face.
Third Commercial Break
Andrew tears down the driveway and chases Lyn's car, yelling out Summer's name. Summer hears him and orders her Nan to stop the car and pull over. Summer leaps out just as Andrew says that he loves her. Summer beams and says she loves him too and they start to kiss. Lyn watches as Andrew tells Summer they can try and make the long distance thing work and then go to uni together when they finish school, but Summer doesn't want to wait that long.
LYN: This is really terrific, kids, but we've got a long trip ahead of us. Come on, in the car.
SUMMER: No Nan, I'm not leaving him. Not now. I'm not going.
Lyn looks incredulous but Andrew breaks out into a huge grin and kisses Summer again. May 25th - the day the Summer and Andrew angsty saga finally flippin' died.
(Tomorrow on Neighbours)
LIBBY: My goals short term, medium term, long term.
MICHAEL: Great well I'll look at them later. I thought we might just have a chat first. Why do you want to be a school principal? What do you hope to get out of it?
(Libby vents her frustrations to Lucas)
LIBBY: On what planet did I ever think it was a good idea to get mentoring from that idiot?
LUCAS: So you're just going to give up?
(Lyn tries to talk some sense into Summer)
LYN: This is ridiculous!
SUMMER: I can't leave.
LYN: Because of some boy saying he loves you?
SUMMER: He's not just some boy, you know how much he means to me.
(Paul doesn't think the reunion is a good idea either)
PAUL: That girl is moving to Bendigo with her family.
ANDREW: No she's not, OK? We've made up our mind.
(Summer might have a fight on her hands)
LYN: Does she really think I'm going to let her stay?
