Paul desperately tries to get hold of Kate when Karl comes round to complain about the noise aka Sophie playing her guitar! He appeases Karl by offering him some wine… and Karl is easily bought, suggesting they have white instead of red!
Kyle comes round to re- negotiate the deal Callum wants to makes from the flyers – he feels that he work coming in doesn't warrant paying the high charge Callum wants and gives him a take it or leave it deal.
Karl scoffs at the wine they've been having… $75 a bottle! Paul miserably tries to make small talk but again, Karl sees right through him.
KARL: You need my advice!
PAUL: For this bottle of wine it better be good!
Toadie is surprised to see Callum still up when he finally gets home from work and finds out about Sophie trashing the toilet and thus there is no school tomorrow. Callum finally heads to bed and Susan decides on an early night too. Sonya tries to tempt Toadie into some baby making but he turns down her advances because he's still got work to do on his presentation for his new boss.
Karl makes sure he's getting the most of the $75 wine before dishing out the advice to Paul.
KARL: I think you've done everything you can.
PAUL: Please don't tell me I wasted my best bottle of pinot grigio on that piece of wisdom!
Karl does expand a bit, telling Paul that teenage girls do go off the rails but usually find their way back and further adds that he's just got to be there for her.
PAUL: Oh right. I should have known better than to ask a pacifist for advice.
KARL: Well take it or leave it but if you force the issue with Sophie it will only make it worse. Just let her make her choices and be there to make sure she's safe.
The pair then sigh heavily as Sophie starts up again.
Simmons and Colbert (next day)
Toadie prepares for the meeting and Charlotte comes in to double check before going to fetch the clients in. Just as Toadie is launching into his presentation, his computer suddenly announces that its baby making time!!! Oops and I don't know who is more embarrassed – Toadie or the clients! Charlotte looks furious at him as he disconnects the computer from the monitor.
Toadie and Charlotte say goodbye to the clients and he again apologises to her. She is still furious at him and thinks they've lost the client, so hands him a pile of documents/client information to get some new ones!
Simmons and Colbert/Sonya's nursery
Toad calls Sonya to tell her about the alarm going off. She's bemused as it wasn't due to go off for another 3 days but he's still not happy and wants the programme removed from his laptop. He also lets her know that he will be late home too.
Callum picks up his newspapers for the delivery and offers Kyle one last chance to get his flyers in and at the old rate too but Kyle isn't interesting. “I'll tell Paul,” Callum threatens but Kyle reminds him that he's got more to lose if Sonya finds out!
Callum cycles into Ramsay Street and heads straight for #22. Kyle has a mini freak- out and heads over from where he's loading his Ute at #26.
Callum enters the house and asks if Sophie is up and gives him permission to go up to her room and see her. As he's about to head up, Kyle enters and Callum quickly says he didn't and thankfully twigs over what was being implied!
Paul takes Kyle into the kitchen area, to offer him some work at Lassiters… but wonders if he's got the time to do so after his recent advertising campaign and shows Kyle the fliers!
Paul explains how he discovered their deception and gloats that nothing gets by him! Callum grasses on who was behind it and then Paul hands Kyle an invoice for his advertising I.e. what he really should have paid if it had been done officially! “I can't afford this,” Kyle pleads before heading off to go earn some money to pay the invoice. Paul then does an Alan Sugar and tells Callum ‘he's fired'! This ‘apprentice' is happy to be fired though!
A despondent Callum comes home, “upset” at losing his job. Susan is all sympathetic towards him as Callum does his best Logie winning performance and offers to talk to Paul… until she finds out what really happened courtesy of Sonya giving her son a telling off! Callum thinks he's now got all the time in the world to play his online game until Sonya puts a spanner in the work…
…he's now working for her at the nursery!
SONYA: This is your new part time job!
Jade drops by for a chat with her sister and can sense something's up. She correctly guesses its baby making related and Sonya tells her about the alarm going off early on Toadie's computer. Sonya goes to get her diary, to show why it shouldn't have gone off, notices that the computer programme was actually correct – its baby making time now!
Simmons and Colbert/Sonya's nursery
Toadie and Charlotte are discussing work when Sonya calls to say its baby making time now, the programme was right! She wants him to come home now to maximise their window of opportunity but Toadie puts work first and says he'll see her tonight.
The call ends and Jade has a suggestion – if Toadie can't come to her she could go to her and volunteers to stay and look after the nursery with Cal's help.
Simmons and Colbert
Toadie is working away when he gets a visit from “a client” I.e. Sonya dressed up extremely posh unlike how she normally looks.
SONYA: (seductively) We have an appointment Mr Rebecchi.
TOADIE: (flustered) Ah Sonya…
SONYA: I hope you're not cancelling on me, I've had this meeting booked for weeks.
Toadie can guess what she wants to “talk” about and suggests this isn't the right place, and puts the kybosh on her suggestion of visiting his office after he says its open plan.
SONYA: Is your boss around?
TOADIE: No… she's in a meeting with clients.
SONYA: Look like we'll be having our meeting right here!
Sonya then makes her way into the boardroom and removes her jacket and makes herself seductively more appealing, which Toadie can't resist any longer. She then hurriedly clears the table and just as they are about to “negotiate further” Charlotte walks into the room! Oops again!!!
Tomorrow on Neighbours
