- Sophie returns from rehab, on crutches. She says she's moving better because they worked her pretty hard.
- Andrew is diagnosed with epilepsy.
- Aidan secretly gives Andrew a blood test at the hospital, using the name Ben Anderson for his files.
- Vanessa can't go through with the wedding to Lucas.
- She finds the vows that Lucas wrote, expressing that he loves her.
Vanessa zombie walks into the living room in the middle of the night. As if we hadn't just seen it in the recap, we see another flashback of Vanessa reading Lucas's vows. She puts a blanket over her shoulders and returns to her bed.
Sophie is without crutches finally (yet another miracle recovery! A faultless track record for Neighbours) Karl and Georgia say she'll still need to come back for regular rehab. Georgia asks what she'll do with her first day of freedom. Kate suggests she come to book club with her, as they are reading ‘The Hunger Games.' Sophie declines.
Paul has been texting Priya, they say they need to see each other, and suggests meeting up at the hotel. Sophie walks in and spins around for Paul to show off. Paul leaps up and hugs Sophie, thrilled she doesn't need the crutches anymore. Sophie asks Paul for a job, she wants to have a part time job and be more independent. Paul refuses to let her get one as she needs to focus on her schoolwork right now. Sophie walks out without explaining to Paul where she's going.
Karl says to Georgia that they're missing some of Sophie's progress notes. Georgia left it on the main desk and forgot to put it in Sophie's file. Karl tells Georgia that missing records are a waste of time and dangerous for patients. He tells Georgia to come through to his office.
Georgia nervously walks in and takes a seat. Karl says she is leaving a trail of paper work errors and it is becoming a pattern of behaviour for her. He has seen patients receive incorrect treatment due to missing information in files. She needs to work harder on her paper work. He decides not to write it up as an official warning. To remind her to not make mistakes in the future, he gives her a pile of incomplete files and tells her to find out the missing information from them. Georgia thanks him and leaves.
Georgia crosses the hall into another room and starts crying when Aidan walks passed. Georgia tells him that she's been given a warning and she needs to review all these files. Aidan says it's okay, they've all been in trouble with Dr Kennedy before. She apologises for crying but she freaks out when she's in trouble. Aidan goes to get her a cup of tea.
Sonya is cleaning and finds a pair of shiny boxer shorts. Horrified, she throws them across the room. Vanessa arrives with cake for the book club. Vanessa tells Sonya that she found Lucas's wedding vows. Sonya suggests it must have been part of the act, but Vanessa says they sounded real and it explains why he's been the way he's been. Vanessa says it makes things complicated; she falls to pieces every time she thinks about or sees Rhys, so why is she suddenly thinking about Lucas? Vanessa goes to tears when she thinks about all the support that Lucas has giving her, but he's not the one she wants to be with, at least she doesn't think so. She starts to tell Sonya about watching TV with Lucas last night, and starting to get a feeling of what things might be like if she and Lucas were together... when Susan walks in and interrupts them. She's brought biscuits.
Georgia finds Ben Anderson's file, and sees Aidan signed off on it. She brings Aidan over and shows him the file. Aidan lies that Ben Anderson was an Irish backpacker. He says he already got into trouble for this one for not following protocol. He asks what she's going to do with it, but she says she can't do much except hope Mr Anderson got back safely and is taking his meds.
Georgia is reading through Ben Anderson's file again and sees the notes on treatment for epilepsy. She rushes over to the filing cabinet and takes out Andrew Robinson's file, and sees that the treatment notes are identical.
Paul drops his car off with Lucas.
LUCAS: Slumming it, are we?
PAUL: I tried all the good ones, couldn't get in. Not at short notice.
LUCAS: It's going to be expensive.
PAUL: Well there's a surprise.
As Paul leaves the car with Lucas, he sees Sophie is working across the road at Grease Monkeys. Paul tells her that she can't work there, but Sophie tells him how working there will improve her time management skills, help build a CV and work ethic, and teach her financial responsibility. She gets back to work, while Lucas walks over.
LUCAS: Must be in the blood.
LUCAS: Getting your own way.
Paul leaves angrily while Lucas laughs.
Aidan invites Georgia to a gig that he and Chris are going to at the weekend. She agrees to go but asks him about Ben Anderson's file, saying that she thinks it is Andrew Robinson's results and he used a false name. Aidan tells Georgia that Andrew was self medicating and he had to get him in for some tests to try and help him. He begs Georgia not to tell anyone, saying there's no point in getting him into trouble.
Sonya, Kate, Vanessa and Susan are discussing ‘The Hunger Games'. As usual, the book relates to what the characters are going through, with Vanessa relating with the main character's choice between two men. Sonya says the main character should go for the guy that cares for her and looks after her, as that is real love.
Vanessa walks over to Lucas who is sitting outside, having a break from the gardening. Lucas says that he's finished work as all that is left is Paul's car and that can wait a couple of days. Vanessa asks if someone came to the door last night, she swears she could hear voices. Lucas says Rhys came passed, wanting to talk, but he thought it was best to send him home as she was asleep. Vanessa says it was a good call.
Sophie returns from work with a burger.
PAUL: Is that your pay, is it?
PAUL: Some might say punishment
SOPHIE: Hey they're nice people, Dennis the manager says I pick up things really quickly.
PAUL: Like salmonella
Paul says if she's determined to work she should work somewhere decent. He offers her a job at Lassiter's, offering to pay her more than she earns at Grease Monkeys. After negotiating her pay with Paul, they strike a deal.
Georgia gets a text from Aidan about the time for the gig. Karl checks on how Georgia is getting on with the files. Karl tells her how important these records are, any missing information could mean the difference between life and death.
Georgia hands Karl the files, taking Ben Anderson's file away with her. After a moment she walks back into Karl's office and shows him Ben Anderson and Andrew Robinson's files, telling him they are the same person and this is how Andrew managed to go so long without treatment. Georgia explains that Aidan was just trying to help Andrew. Karl thanks Georgia and tells her to leave.
