Previously on Neighbours
- Ed humiliates Tash in class: he says she pretended to be interested him just so that he'd work on the app.
- Sonya tells Toadie she wants to get a doula, and she picks Alex. Toadie does not look that thrilled about it.
Alex is explaining his role in the birth, which is non- medical support. They need a plan if anything goes wrong, which Sonya thinks they won't need. Alex asks if they want to go through the birth plan but Toadie is unenthusastic about the whole process. Sonya thinks it sounds perfect and puts her hands over Alex's, while Toadie watches her.
Tash offers fresh coasters to Summer and Chris and says the job is boring. She can't quit though, because she's broke. Summer retorts that she shouldn't have the shoes. Andrew comes in and reads a quote off the blog. "For this dynamic duo's unique new app, we are betting that the probability of success will be high." Andrew is thrilled with this publicity, until Summer asks how many copies they've sold. "About 8," he admits. He tries to reassure Tash that it's going to be a huge success and tells Chris to look for a new car for him.
Paul asks Andrew if he's made his first million, and Andrew says that sales are slow. Paul says that online ventures are risky. There are lots of apps out there and a review "on a nerd's website" might not be enough. He had to do more.
Alex asks if there's anything else they want to do in the rest of the session. Toadie shrugs, and Alex suggests giving tips on massage. Sonya is enthusastic. Alex shows her and Toadie what to do, and places his hands over Toadie's for guidance.
ALEX: You're probably feeling some warmth in your hands...
TOADIE: Mainly in the back of them.
Toadie continues with the massage under Alex's instructions. Callum enters and tells them that they are "officially weird".
Alex introduces himself and explains his role, and hopes Callum will feel part of the process. Callum is dubious.
Andrew walks up, and Chris jokingly wonders if he's having trouble deciding which supercar to choose. Andrew says that things aren't working out with he app, which he is surprised about. His phone rings and, looking a bit overwhelmed, he asks the caller to send the details in an email so he can discuss them with Tash. He explains to Chris that some gaming consortium wants to buy the rights for 25 grand. Chris is amazed and Andrew says Tash is going to be blown away. He walks off looking pleased with himself.
Alex is talking to Callum and Cal picks up that the role of big brother means doing more chores. Alex says that it's like playing midfield in football - you don't score the goals, but you're still important. Callum says that he'll go along with it because Sonya's his mum. Toadie agrees that they're all good.
Andrew comes in and asks Tash how much she loves him, because he's just made her $12,500 from the sale of the app. He explains it's not from individual sales, it's a casino. She asks about Ed, but Andrew says that he's been bought out. Tash says she needs to think about it. Andrew says he told them that they would be on board. Tash says he should have spoken to her first. She points out that if they are offering that straight off, it's probably worth a lot more. (Clever girl.) She tells him to leave while she thinks about it.
Ed is getting a coffee and Tash approaches him nervously. Ed is off- hand with her. Tash asks him what he thinks about selling "our app" to some casinos. Ed points out that he was bought out, so he's not involved. Tash wants to get him a cut, but Ed says he didn't do it for the money. Tash wants to make the right decision. Ed points out that the casinos either want to bury it, or worse, increase their profits.
Andrew wants to know why Tash would talk to Ed about it. He says she shouldn't let guilt control business decisions. She says it's her choice. Since he can't sell without her agreement, she won't agree. Andrew sighs, and looks frustrated.
Alex and Sonya are arranging an appointment. Alex gets a phone call, and Sonya goes over to Toadie and says it's good Callum likes him. Toadie tries to look pleased so Sonya suggests he takes Alex out for a drink so that he can feel more relaxed around him. Toadie asks Alex (blaming the idea on Sonya) and Alex immediately agrees, since he has a couple of hours free.
Andrew walks up to where Ed is working. He tells Ed that Tash had pulled out of the sale of the app because of what Ed had said to her. Ed said he doubted it, because Tash wasn't interested in his opinions. But Andrew said she'd turned down a lot of money. The app was his idea and he did all the leg work, but thanks to Ed, Tash has a conscience! Ed looks pleased as Andrew walks off.
Alex and Toadie make stilted conversation. Then Toadie asks if anything has happened between him and any of his clients. Alex says that most of them are in a relationship. Toadie wonders what would happen if a gorgeous client threw herself at him. Alex says it's not an issue.
ALEX: I'm not going to be hitting on any mothers. Or their husbands.
Toadie looks relieved as Alex then says he likes to keep his private and professional lives separate.
Toadie and Alex are playing darts, and Toadie asks why Alex didn't say anything. He says he didn't think it was relevant to the way he did his job. Besides, some people reacted negatively. Toadie agrees. Sonya arrives and is pleased to find the two men getting on so well. Sonya takes Toadie aside and asks why the change of heart. He says he just had to get to know him, and he agrees that Alex is the best man for the job. Toadie goes off to buy a round while Alex and Sonya are sitting at a table. Sonya asks Alex how he managed to win Toadie round, as she didn't think he'd manage it. Alex explains that Toadie had been worried that something might happen between him and Sonya, but if he was gay, he wouldn't be a threat. When Sonya asks, Alex tells her he isn't gay, but that some men tend to find it easier to cope when he is working with their partner.
SONYA: Especially when they're kind of attractive.
Alex said that Toadie had made his own assumptions, and Sonya says she won't tell.
Ed turns up and says he didn't mean to be so full- on. He tells Tash he heard their casino deal failed. She says she turned it down, and he says he thought that was a cool thing to do. Tash says she's trying not to think about the 12,500 she turned down. But she agrees with Ed about the casinos, and says thanks for letting her run it past him. "Any time," he says. She says she has some maths to discuss, so Ed says she only wants him for his brain. "Not just your brain," she replies. She tells Ed that when he asked her how she felt about him, she didn't know how to answer, but maybe they should go on a date. Ed looks shocked (in a good way) and promises to text her. Summer comes into the loungeroom and asks Tash who was there, and she says no- one.
Andrew and Paul are having a drink and he tells Paul about the casino offer. Paul is impressed, but Andrew says he is turning it down. Paul asks if he is holding out for a better offer, but Andrew says it's because Tash won't agree. Paul tells Andrew that he needs to take control of the decision making: Tash obviously isn't thinking straight, and she will be happy when she gets the cheque. Paul leaves and Andrew gets a text from a Dale Madden: the casinos have doubled their offer to $50,000.
Andrew meets Chris and Summer, and they discuss the sale. Summer wonders if they could make more money in individual sales, but Chris thinks not. Andrew says he's still thinking about it. He walks a few yards then he rings Dale and says he wants to set up a meeting the following morning.
