Live Action Role Play (LARP) venue
Tash has come to find Ed to talk to him about the coding. He is dressed as a Viking and tells her there wasn't code in the 11th century(!) He tells her to address him as Eric. She rolls her eyes and says the game is stupid. He says she'll have to join in before they talk!
Ed tells Tash that she'll have to dress up. She reluctantly agrees, but there isn't a lot of girl stuff. Tash finally picks an outfit, but Ed says she'll have to earn it. He gives her a rubber sword.
Chris and Summer meet up for lunch. He suggests she come to the garage this afternoon to talk about the problem page. Lucas has given Chris lots of inspiration with it, as he's been out with a different girl every night this week!
Susan comes over to see Summer with a little bunch of flowers, but before she can get to her, Paul interrupts with a huge bunch of flowers - Summer has apparently won a journalism award. Summer is delighted and a man starts taking photos of Paul and Summer. Zoe pushes Susan out of the way.
Susan tells Summer how proud she is. Summer thanks Susan for nominating her. She's confused that Paul was so enthusiastic though.
Zoe says they'll get the footage of Paul up on the website.
Susan tells Summer that Paul wants to be editor of the paper again, so he's hired Zoe to improve his image.
Paul think he'll be back as editor by next week(!) Zoe warns him not to rush things.
Susan thinks Paul's image may be beyond repair.
Tash is now in costume and looking a bit out of her comfort zone! They are about to start a battle reenactment, and everyone draws their fake weapons. The two armies rush towards each other, screaming, and battle commences!
Karl comes in and sees all the flowers. They explain that Summer has achieved an award. Karl suggests that Summer invites them over for a celebration tonight - he'll be out, so they can have the place to themselves. Summer isn't sure her friends will be interested, but Susan tells her to take the rest of the afternoon off to organise it.
Chris comes in and Summer tells him she's thinking of having a little dinner tonight to celebrate the award. Chris says he'll come, but he'll have to work a bit late. Summer says she's already texted Tash.
CHRIS: What about Andrew?
SUMMER: What about him?
SUMMER: I don't know, might be a bit too much.
CHRIS: It's a dinner with friends!
SUMMER: We're only *just* friends again. Might be a bit too much.
CHRIS: Well, I reckon you're over- thinking it a bit. You have to take this step at some stage. Look, I'll try to get there on time, OK, you probably won't even have to talk to each other. Or you can just talk to each other through me. I'm pretty good at that.
SUMMER: Tell you what. The next time I win something, I'll invite him.
Andrew pops around to congratulate Summer on her award - he found out from Paul. Paul is even putting it up on the website for Summer.
SUMMER: Wow. I didn't know it was that big of a deal.
ANDREW: It's a very big deal. You should be very proud of yourself.
SUMMER: I am, thanks.
ANDREW: Good. Alright, well, I'll let you put your shopping away.
SUMMER: Oh, yeah, it's just, um...it's just stuff for a dinner...I'm having a dinner, just like a celebratory thing for the award.
ANDREW: Ah, good.
SUMMER: Um, do you want to stay?
ANDREW: Hey, no, itt's alright, you don't have to invite me. Anyway, you probably don't even have enough.
SUMMER: No, there's plenty, Chris isn't coming till later and I haven't even heard back from Tash yet, so...
ANDREW: I think she's with her Maths buddy at the moment.
SUMMER: Oh, well, that explains why she's not texting me back! Anyway, it's low- key.
ANDREW: Alright, sure, sounds good.
She looks rather awkward as she takes the shopping into the kitchen.
Summer is trying to decipher the recipe. Andrew offers to help peel things, but Summer says there's nothing to peel. He then suggests diplomatically that they just get some takeaway(!)
SUMMER: I am *not* a bad cook.
ANDREW: Do you remember Chris's cupcakes?
SUMMER: He was in hospital, and he probably shouldn't have been eating solids, anyway!
ANDREW: They were just barely solid(!)
ANDREW: Tash's soup?
SUMMER: That was Tash.
ANDREW: Ah, you helped her make it, and I think you might have helped her make it just a little bit too much.
SUMMER: I think you're getting me and your other friends mixed up. And have you forgotten who helped you cook for all those backpackers?
SUMMER: Oh, they had more than toast!
ANDREW: It was toast, and you set the smoke alarm off four times in one morning.
SUMMER:(laughs) Well, there was something wrong with the toaster, or the smoke alarm.
Andrew suggests her can peel the ginger. He gets up and joins her in the kitchen.
Tash has stopped fighting for a rest and asks Ed when half time is. He tells her there's no half time - this is a proper battle - if she gets hit with a sword three times, she's out. Tash suddenly gets hit with a sword twice! Ed tells her to get fighting! Tash holds her sword above her head and runs into battle, screaming a battle cry!
Susan is working in the Coffee Shop when Karl comes in. Apparently Ajay cancelled their jam session, so he's off to the hospital. Karl tells Susan that Summer's video is on the Erinsborough News website. She is surprised he's even on the Internet(!)
SUSAN: Welcome to the 21st century, Karl!
Susan is shocked to see the video of Paul and Summer online and says he couldn't care less about Summer's award. Karl thinks he won't be the only one impressed by Paul.
Tash is well into the LARPing and fells the only other girl with her sword. Ed is still alive, and, covered by Tash, manages to grab the enemy flag. They shriek in delight and hug each other, Ed swinging Tash around. After the excitement has died down (and Tash is genuinely excited) she remembers herself and looks a bit embarrassed. Ed tells her it's the first time he's claimed the flag himself. A bloke is taking photos of the action, but Tash doesn't notice him. The rest of the LARP team leap up shouting in victory and swing Tash round.
Tash has changed back into her normal clothes and picks up Summer's text from her phone. "Small dinner for a small win @ mine"
Ed comes over and thanks Tash for covering him on the last stage before he grabbed the flag.
ED: Pretty smart.
TASH: You're only just realising that now?
ED: No. (awkwardly) I was just saying.
TASH: Anyway, I um, I guess I'll see you later.
ED: Oh, hey, er, I thought you wanted to talk, about probability and stuff.
TASH: Oh, right. Um, maybe at Uni?
ED: Yeah, um, it's just some of the guys are going out for drinks. You know, to celebrate the win. If you wanted to come down...I mean, you don't have to. It's just drinks.
TASH:(looking genuinely a bit regretful) I can't, I have plans.
ED: Oh, no, of course. I knew you'd be busy. You know what, you should have this!
He holds up the trophy (a horn on a piece of wood)
TASH: I can't take your trophy!
ED: Why not? I mean, we wouldn't have won it without you. You can stick it in your cupboard if it doesn't go with your stuff.
TASH: Thanks. See you.
She walks away, and Ed starts packing up his stuff. But Tash does look back at Ed packing his stuff with half a smile, despite herself.
It's full moon (again) and Susan sees Paul and Zoe in the Coffee Shop. She tells Paul that she knows he's trying to make himself look good.
SUSAN: There's only one reason you edited the footage the way you did. You want your old job back.
PAUL: Don't be ridiculous!
SUSAN: The flowers, the public display of affection, you don't do that sort of thing unless you want something!
PAUL: Let me get this straight. You're saying that I've got a burning desire to edit the newspaper that I'm still owner of?
SUSAN: Editorial control is very different to ownership.
PAUL: Ownership *is* control, Susan. Did it ever occur to you that raising my public profile actually makes good business sense as an owner?
SUSAN: So you're saying you're happy with the job I'm doing as editor.
PAUL: Apart from you doing your damnedest to turn it into a bleeding- heart broadsheet, yes. See, I don't *want* to edit the newspaper. I actually have better things to do with my life. Like going to the theatre.
He takes Zoe off.
Chris, Summer and Andrew are sitting down to dinner.
CHRIS: Wow. You do know that it's not too late to order takeaway?
SUMMER: Oi! You were the one that started all this rubbish about me not being able to cook. So you're going to eat it, and you're going to enjoy it!
CHRIS: Yeah, well, I also said you were one of my favourite people.
SUMMER: Third favourite.
ANDREW: Excuse me, you never actually clarified who was third and who was fourth.
SUMMER: I'm taking what I can get here!
The door opens and Tash rushes in, apologising for being late saying she got caught up with "the geeks". Andrew asks her if she sorted things out with Ed. She evasively tells him it's all good.
Andrew stands up to make a little speech.
ANDREW: Summer is one of the strongest people I know.
SUMMER: Andrew, you don't have to do this.
ANDREW: And the most stubborn. Come on, this year hasn't exactly been easy on any of us.
CHRIS: Aw, it's been pretty cruisy for Tash(!)
ANDREW: But, I think Summer's done it the hardest.
(Hmm, yes, Tash's father revealing her mother died because he was getting it on with her sister, then leaving and selling the house out from under Tash was a breeze)
ANDREW: We've all had each other's backs at Uni, but Summer's pretty much just done it by herself. What you've been through the past year, most people would have just given up. But not you. You came out stronger, and hey, look at you now, right. To Summer!
They all clink glasses.
SUMMER: Thanks, guys.
TASH: Probably would have gone a bit less corny. It's only a local media prize.
CHRIS: And you've won so many of them, haven't you?!
But Summer is clearly touched by Andrew's words.
Everyone is finishing up their meal and the atmosphere is good - all laughing and joking. Chris suggests they go out and get a drink, but Summer wants to stay in. Andrew says he's got a big day tomorrow, so he's not going out either.
TASH: Well, I guess it's just me and Chris then, like usual!
They head off, and Andrew and Summer start cleaning up the dishes.
ANDREW: I might just head off too.
SUMMER: Oh, Ok.
ANDREW: Yeah. It was a good night.
SUMMER: Yeah, it was. Thanks for peeling the ginger. And not telling them you peeled the ginger.
ANDREW: Thank you very much for the invite. I'm really glad I said yes.
SUMMER: Me, too.
A "moment" has come between them, and Summer stands on tiptoe and kisses him quickly on the mouth. Then they start kissing passionately. Suddenly Summer pulls away.
SUMMER: I think...Andrew, what are we doing?
They just start kissing again. And Summer drags him away towards her bedroom, still kissing.
Monday on Neighbours
CHRIS: How did it even happen?!
ANDREW: A boy and a girl...
CHRIS: You know what I'm talking about!
- Summer tells Susan what happened, but says her friends don't know.
- Summer sees Andrew in Charlie's.
TASH: Oh my God, you guys hooked up!!
SUMMER:(VO) You know, I think this might be the start of us getting back on track.
(Troy lying in hospital)
TOADIE:(to Sonya) He is laid up in bed, there is nothing that he can do. And you should be trying to relax.
(Sonya and Susan peep through the shutters of No.28)
Callum tells Jade that if they're not scared of Troy, he's stuffed - so they win.
- Troy wakes up and whispers, "Callum".
TOADIE:(VO) Troy's awake.
Troy rips out his IV and gets out of bed.
TROY:(VO) He's *my* son!
