- Sonya tries to talk Jade into giving Kyle another chance, but she sees him talking to Kate at the yard
- Tash says she doesn't want to sell the app to the casinos, and Paul tells Andrew to take control of the decision- making
A curiously behatted Andrew calls around to see Tash, to ask her for the technical paperwork relating to the Odds On app. He tells her he wants to put a blurb on the website to help increase sales. While Tash searches for the papers, Summer tells Andrew she's sure the app sales will pick up after all, she's bought it and now she's nagging all her colleagues to do the same! Tash fetches the paperwork for Andrew and he leaves.
Jade takes a call from Charlotte: the gym that wanted to franchise her singles boot camp has just signed the contracts. She refrains from telling a nearby Kyle the news, and instead tells Rhys and Vanessa who are walking past. When Jade leaves, Rhys and Vanessa relay the news to Kyle, who seems genuinely pleased about it.
Kyle follows Rhys and Vanessa inside and suggests they should throw Jade a house party to celebrate the boot camp deal. Rhys is dismissive but Vanessa thinks it's a great idea. Kyle promises to do all the work if Rhys takes the credit for it, so Jade can relax without having to feel awkward that Kyle was involved. Rhys agrees, provided that Kyle cleans up afterwards.
Andrew meets with the representative of the casinos, Dale Madden. The man says they're impressed with Odds On, and Andrew explains a little about how it works. He starts to flounder on the more difficult questions, and says that's Tash's side of the business. Madden seems relieved he's not a tech guy either and suggests they cut to the chase. He tells Andrew he's surprised he and Tash haven't already snapped up the casinos' offer. The casinos want to move quickly on the app as it's the first of its kind, so are prepared to pay over the odds. Madden tells Andrew that few first- time app developers are offered $50,000 for their products. Andrew says they should talk contracts.
Kyle phones all Jade's regular boot camp customers to invite them to the party, and starts putting up sports- themed banners and decorations. Rhys and Vanessa arrive with some cupcakes she's made, and are told by Kyle they need to change into gym gear as it's a costume party. Kyle asks Vanessa if she could ice the cupcakes to look like basketballs.
Andrew confirms with Dale Madden that the proposed contract is for a full buyout, meaning Andrew and Tash will have no control over the app after it is signed. Andrew agrees to the terms, but Madden tells him he needs signed authorisation from Tash before they can go ahead. Andrew promises to get it before Madden leaves for Sydney at 6pm.
Vanessa, Rhys, Chris and load of boot- campers are dressed in sports gear, waiting for Jade to walk through the door. When Jade comes in she's thrilled, but a little surprised when Rhys says he organised it. A boot- camper called Heath arrives, and congratulates Jade on her business success. While she's in the kitchen, Kyle creeps out of the house, keen not to be seen.
Jade tucks into a basketball cake, but when she finds photos of herself stuck to the wall, she looks at Rhys suspiciously. Rhys is busy laying into Chris for his choice of music, and abruptly refuses when Chris asks him to bring him a life- size manga collectible back from Japan! Jade asks Rhys how he got everyone to the party, and he claims he found her client book and charmed them all into attending.
Kyle is doing some gardening work when Tash approaches, asking him why he's not at Jade's party. Tash says he should be there, as he helped Jade start up the boot camp business, but he says he's busy, and she walks on.
Jade confronts Rhys she doesn't believe he's responsible for the party, as there's no way he could have got the photos of her, and he and Vanessa have told her different stories about whose idea the cupcakes were. Rhys finally admits he's not responsible for any of it, and tells her she shouldn't have to ask who is. The truth slowly dawns on her.
Tash gets a text from Ed as she walks into the house, telling her he hopes she's ready for their date. She gets a shock when she turns round and sees Andrew on the sofa Summer let him in. He tells Tash the casinos have doubled their offer to $50,000. She's clearly tempted, but sticks to her guns and tells Andrew she doesn't want to sell out.
ANDREW: It's $50,000. People are going to gamble, no matter what we do.
TASH: No, it's still wrong!
ANDREW: What's wrong is that you're going to turn down this amount of money!
TASH: Andrew, we didn't make the app to help casinos.
Realising the allure of the money won't work, he tells her how good it could be for her career, to say she created and sold a professional app at such a young age. But she insists she won't sell, and heads off to get ready for work.
Andrew has a beer by himself. Summer comes over, and tries to cheer him up by saying the app is generating a positive online response since she tweeted about it earlier. Strangely, this doesn't fill him with new hope, but Summer tells him things will pick up if he perseveres. Tash comes in to start her shift, and Kate reminds her to sign the roster. As Andrew watches her sign, he has an idea
Later, Tash goes to clear a table outside, and Kate leaves the bar unsupervised. While she's busy with customers, Andrew dashes over and takes a photo of Tash's signature from the roster with his phone! When Kate spots him behind the bar, he pretends he's fetching a cloth to wipe the table, and makes a quick exit.
Andrew gets to the hotel just in time to catch Madden before he leaves for Sydney, presenting him with the signed contract bearing both his and Tash's signatures! Madden says he hopes Tash is as happy as they are, and Andrew tells him she's booking a holiday as they speak. Madden shakes his hand, says they'll be in touch about the payment, and leaves while Andrew deletes the incriminating photograph of Tash's signature from his phone.
As Jade tells Vanessa a sentimental story about how Kyle gave her a trophy after she beat him in a race once, Heath puts on a copy of the promotional video that Kate and Chris filmed, back when Kate and Jade were friends. Chris tries to stop him playing it, but it's too late: Jade sees it and wanders off into the kitchen, upset.
Later on, people begin to leave the party, including Heath. But before he leaves he asks Jade if she wants to come out for a drink with him later on. He says that he was sorry to hear she split up with Kyle, but that he enjoys her company and figured that now she's single, they could hook up. She doesn't seem very keen, but Heath tells her to call him if she decides she'd like to go out with him.
Having observed Heath asking Jade out, Vanessa asks her whether she's really over Kyle. Jade decides it's too soon for her to see anyone else, and begins typing a text to Heath to that effect. But she accidentally sends it to Kyle instead!
Kyle sits alone, looking glum until he gets the text Jade meant for Heath. "Sorry but not ready to move on from Kyle. Just thought you should know."
