- Susan inviting Summer to live with them
- Karl being surprised at Susan's offer
- Tash feeling left out by Andrew and Summer
- Chris telling Tash off for meddling in his business
- Tash lying to Michael about being at Chris', when she was actually going out with a fake ID
Tash tries to sneak into the house but hides when she hears her father. Mike is on the phone asking someone to fix the amenities at the school, and as he walks into the lounge room, Tash sneaks into her room. She quickly emerges after having changed into a robe and a turban to look like she's just had a shower, lying that she had to come home from Chris' because she forgot her shampoo.
MICHAEL: You look tired, when did you get to bed?
NATASHA: Um, Chris' family has this thing for cheap mattresses.
Natasha gives a big sigh of relief when Michael leaves and smiles when she gets a message from Ivan: “Had a gr8 nite. C u again?”
Susan is writing out a shopping list for dinner when Karl walks out into the kitchen in a cranky mood. He has just had a cold shower and the milk is all gone. He whinges about not having a better system in the mornings because of the amount of people in the house and Summer looks awkward at having overheard the complaint when she walks out.
Tash is untagging herself from the pictures of her and Ivan on Facebook when Chris walks in for breakfast and sits at another table. Natasha gets up to pay for his order.
NATASHA: Hey Chris! I paid for your coffee and slice.
CHRIS: What do you want, a parade?
Tash apologises for meddling in his stuff but he doesn't really want to talk about it. Chris looks like he's not ready to forgive and forget but Natasha manages to get him to agree not to talk about what happened “last night”.
Summer complains to Andrew that she feels like she's intruding at number 28 but he thinks it sounds as though Karl is being uptight. Spotting Susan, he wants to go over to have a word because he doesn't think that the Kennedys should invite Summer only to make her feel like she's intruder. Summer stops him and approaches Susan herself. Summer apologises for being in the way while Susan apologises on Karl's behalf for being grumpy and not adjusting. Suse tells Sum that it'll just take some time and Susan will sort it out.
Erinsborough High – Classroom
Summer is still worrying about Karl but Andrew wants her to take each day as it comes, Tash says hi and they both completely ignore her, and Chris doesn't look up when she looks over to him. She sits down feeling lonely until she gets another text from Ivan: “Come to Uni bar 4 drinks this arvo”.
Erinsborough High – Outside Michael's office
Tash stands at the doorway of Michael's office when the door is opened by Mike. She makes a sick face and blames it on food poisoning the night before so Mike agrees to take her home.
Erinsborough High – Hallway
Andrew and Chris are talking about Natasha not minding her own business when Michael walks past and asks about Chris and his family and whether they've been hit by food poisoning, much to his confusion. He then recalls Natasha's words that morning regarding not talking about “last night”.
CHRIS: Tash was supposed to come over last night, but I blew her off.
ANDREW: And she didn't tell her dad that. You're the alibi. You've been had, mate.
Chris lets himself in and assures Tash that he didn't tell Michael, but he is annoyed at not being told he was an alibi! He wants to know what's going on but Tash sticks to her story about being sick. She confesses that she snuck out, but lies about where she was.
NATASHA: So, I snuck out to the kebab shop on Ansons Corner.
CHRIS: That place is gross.
Natasha bolts to the bathroom in a show of sickness so Chris lets himself out. After he leaves, Tash calls Ivan to let him know that she's on her way to the Uni.
Susan has bought shanks for dinner and Karl is making a sandwich.
KARL: I thought we were having pasta.
SUSAN: We did discuss this earlier.
KARL: Must have been while I was having a cold shower.
As Susan gets bread out to make herself a sandwich, Karl pointedly puts the butter back in the fridge, knowing that Susan is about to use it. He does the same for the ham, but when he tries for the cheese, Susan snatches it off him.
KARL (innocently): You only had to ask.
Susan shoots him a death stare.
Paul stops Susan on the way back to the newspaper and she apologises for taking a long lunch – but Paul only wanted to ask what stories she has lined up. Susie is planning on doing a story on a charity which gets a grimace from Paul.
SUSAN: Oh what, too heart- warming for you?
PAUL: No no no no, people go for that sort of stuff. It's just, haven't really had a real story for ages.
SUSAN: Hmm, you want a bit of death and destruction.
PAUL: Yeah, something along those lines.
Andrew approaches them wanting to talk to Susan and not to his father.
PAUL (to Susan): You – 5 minutes, otherwise I'm gonna give your pay to one of those do- gooder charities of yours.
SUSAN: Always the philanthropist.
Andrew tells Susan about Summer's worries but she assures him that Summer is not causing any trouble. Andrew insists that Sum is worried about it nonetheless so Susan promises that she'll sort it out.
Erinsborough High/Eden University
Chris triumphantly declares that Andrew was wrong about Tash and she was really sick, but he's a little less sure when Andrew asks whether he actually saw Tash throwing up. Meanwhile, the scenes cut to Eden University where Ivan introduces Tash to his friend Bethany. Ivan and Tash then get up to kiss and dance randomly in the middle of the day.
When Ivan has gone to get drinks, Bethany and Tash get talking. Bethany is surprised that Tash is supposedly 20 because Ivan tends to go for the young ones. Tash lies through her teeth that she works as a talent scout and books them for fashion shows and magazine editorials.
BETHANY: So do you get to, like, eliminate the ugly girls like they do on TV?
NATASHA: (laughs) No, it's not really like that.
They gush about how they're addicted to modelling shows on TV.
Karl arrives home and the mood is still frosty. Susan breaks the ice by telling Karl that Summer wants to move out, which surprises him. Karl finally tells Susan his problem: he doesn't have a problem with Summer per se; he just wished that Susan had consulted him first because having another teenager is a big responsibility. Susan realises how much it has bothered him so she apologises and they hug, and all seems well.
Later, Sum arrives home with milk since she finished off the last of it with her midnight cereal craving. Karl apologises for that morning and Sum thanks him while letting him know that she already sorted it out with Susan. She lets slip that Susan mentioned Karl had “issues”, leaving Karl looking rather annoyed.
They're ready for another round of drinks and Bethany insists that it's Natasha's turn to shout. She goes to the bar and orders lemonade and beer and after scrutinising her ID, the bartender hands it back without fuss. However, Bethany and crept up behind her and sees that her ID belongs to Sarah – somebody who Bethany knows. Ivan walks up to them wanting to know what's going on.
Tash confesses her age and starts to leave, thinking that Ivan doesn't want to see her anymore. He isn't concerned about her age, however – he's after someone who is fun and looking for a good time. Tash smiles and confirms that she is fun and also likes a good time.
ANDREW: So I was doing some research online, and your new boyfriend is 28. What was he dropping off to you before on the street?
(Natasha shows Andrew her new fake ID)
NATASHA: He was giving me this. He knows I'm 17 and he doesn't care.
(Mark sees his car window broken)
MARK: What the? Bloody kids.
(Lucas holds up a brick with the word “RAT” on it)
LUCAS: Kids who think you're a rat.
(Paul to Toadie at Charlie's)
PAUL: There's been whispers about people getting into things they shouldn't. Mark Brennan's name keeps cropping up.
(Mark walks into the police station)
RANDOM COP: You rat!
PAUL (V.O): I think the very thought of corruption in the force sickens him. And now, this fine young detective has a lot of enemies.
(Mark confronts Paul)
MARK: You print one single word of this and so help me, you'll regret it.
PAUL: It is one hell of a front page.
