Previously on Neighbours
- Toadie is increasingly convinced that his wedding to Sonya is cursed, as things continue to go wrong
- Chris thinks Scotty was cracking onto him at the camp- out, much to Kyle's amusement
- Mason welcomes Robbo to Erinsborough, to Bailey's concern. But Robbo secretly meets with Amber too…
Robbo kisses Amber. She wants to know why he's changed his mind about ending their relationship; he says he was trying to do right by her, but realised he was wrong. He asks her to forgive him, and it seems she already has. She asks if Mason knows Robbo's in town; Robbo admits he hasn't seen him since the break- in in Mount Isa. Amber thinks he should tell Mason he's here, and tell him about their relationship too – but Robbo doesn't want to talk about that yet, and they go back to kissing.
Matt and Bailey are washing up. Mason comes in in his new Lassiter's get- up; Kate says that he looks hot, and no wonder, because he suddenly bears an uncanny resemblance to her beloved ex, Declan II. But she swiftly claims that she just meant he was sweating! Matt wants to know how Mason is going to juggle waitering, TAFE and the garage; Mason says he'll work it out, but doesn't tell Matt the real reason he's taking on a second job. Lauren comes in, and tactfully tries to ascertain why Kate is randomly in her house – does she have a session with Amber? Kate thought she did, but Amber hasn't shown up. Lauren suggests Kate try ringing Amber's mobile.
Robbo and Amber continue to play tonsil- hockey, when Amber's phone rings. She ignores it, and asks Robbo if he's leaving soon. He says he's here to stay, and she's over the moon. She insists they ought to tell Mason, but Robbo wants to hold off – claiming he doesn't want Mason to have to keep it secret, and Amber's parents would flip if they knew who she was dating. Robbo promises he'll get a job and a place to live, and become the sort of person her family would approve of – and then they can reveal their relationship. Amber tells Robbo she loves him; he notices her necklace and says he wondered if she'd kept it. She wants to be able to wear it in front of everyone. He kisses it, then kisses Amber again.
Amber comes to see Kate, and apologises for being late for their session, saying she was catching up with a friend. Kate starts rambling on about school stuff, but quickly notices Amber is distracted. Kate asks if Amber's friend is anyone she knows; and Amber admits her boyfriend is here, but that she wants to give him time to settle before she tells her family. Predictably, Kate doesn't think keeping secrets is a good idea, but Amber asks her not to tell Matt and Lauren. Amber insists her boyfriend loves her and that they'll only keep it secret for a while longer. She begs Kate not to tell, but Kate doesn't answer.
Toadie is stressing about his buck's party – he's convinced something will go wrong.
SONYA: Just please relax! This is supposed to be fun, remember?
TOADIE: I have had enough buck's parties for three lifetimes, and fun doesn't even describe it.
Sonya jokingly points out that at least Connor and his superglue aren't on the scene, but Toadie doesn't see why he should have to endure another buck's party when he had one a few weeks ago. Sonya insists he go and enjoy it. She isn't having a hen party as she has to stay and look after Nell – however, Toadie's envious, and tells her that if two bad things happen tonight, he'll be coming home, as bad things always come in threes. Sonya practically pushes him out of the door.
Toadie reluctantly joins Karl, Kyle, Lucas and Scotty for the buck's night. They joke about having booked exotic dancers, and Toadie tries to leave, but they sit him back down again and convince him to have a beer. He still looks terrified as they raise a toast.
Sonya enjoys her peaceful night in – until Vanessa, Georgia, Kate and (inexplicably) Lauren all show up, all shrieking and dressed in pink. Vanessa has also brought cupcakes, which is a surprise, and Kate has some horrific bunny ears. They pop open the champagne.
Toadie is feeling a bit better with some beer down him, and drunkenly expresses his excitement about his future with Sonya, Cal and Nell. It's all going well until a bloke in a cowboy hat comes in, who introduces himself as ‘Party Marty' and promises Toadie a night he won't forget. Turns out the guys have booked a bus for their evening of adventure, and that Marty is the designated driver. Scotty says he might give it a miss, and Toadie thinks so too – but the others all push Toadie towards the door and a night of debauchery, leaving Scotty to his own devices.
Chris is home alone, enjoying watching the cricket, having apparently been snubbed as regards Toadie's buck's night. He's just contemplating takeaway, when Scotty turns up at the door with a four- pack of beers!
CHRIS: What, you left the buck's party to check up on me?
SCOTTY: Thought you might be lonely. And thirsty. Which in case you didn't know is a very unhealthy combination.
Before Chris can object, Scotty makes himself at home and peruses the pizza menu. Chris politely tries to tell Scotty he was going to have a quiet night of cricket- watching, but Scotty is oblivious and says it sounds like a great plan. Scotty reaches for the phone to dial for pizza, pointedly resting a hand on Chris's leg as he does so. Chris looks uncomfortable.
The girls talk about past weddings, imagined and real. Lauren says her entire extended family was at her wedding, while Georgia says if any of her relatives didn't turn up to her wedding, she'd kill them. She then apologises to Sonya for being insensitive, but Sonya says Toadie, Cal and Nell are her family now. Sonya asks if Georgia would marry Scotty, and she says they've spoken about it in the past – but they've only just got back together. Attention shifts to Kate, but she denies having her eye on anyone at the moment, saying she's really happy to be single. They put on some music and start dancing stupidly.
Mason gives Robbo the first installment of the money he owes him, and says he'll get the rest to him when he's got it. Robbo smiles and says he trusts Mason – and that he's in no rush to leave Erinsborough anyway. Mason rather unsubtly suggests Robbo could always head home, and Mason could put the money in his account when he has it – but Robbo quickly clocks that Mason's trying to get rid of him, and says as much. Mason denies it, and says he's stoked that Robbo's here. He admits, however, that Bailey is twitchy about Robbo being around. Robbo says Mason should set his brother straight, but confirms he and Mason are still ‘cool'. Mason goes to buy Robbo a beer, and looks worried.
Chris and Scotty watch the cricket, and seem to be getting on okay – until Scotty grabs Chris's leg for the second time.
CHRIS: Scotty, stop. You've got a girlfriend.
CHRIS: Well I'm not wrong, am I? I mean, aren't you and Georgia supposed to be madly in love?
SCOTTY: Come on. No- one'll have to know.
Scotty grabs Chris by the shirt, but Chris leaps up.
CHRIS: Well, I'll know! I can't do that to Georgia, and I can't believe that you could!
SCOTTY: You're making too much of this.
CHRIS: I think you should leave.
SCOTTY: Come on, don't be like that.
Scotty starts pulling up Chris's shirt.
CHRIS: I'm not being like anything. I don't want this to happen, so it's not going…
Scotty grabs Chris by the neck and moves in for a kiss.
CHRIS: Get out. Now!
Robbo is sitting in his car outside the Bric- a- Brac Shop, when Bailey comes out of Grease Monkeys. Robbo gets out of the car and accosts him. Bailey makes it clear he has nothing to say to him, but Robbo demands to know what's happened to the $10,000 Bailey has stashed away. Bailey says Robbo will get his cash, but he'll have to wait as they don't have it – so tells him to leave. Robbo says he's not going anywhere, and gets back into his car.
Toadie is asleep on the sofa, snoring. Sonya walks in and shouts at him to wake him up, which she finds hilarious. Sonya tells him about her surprise hen party, but Toadie's more worried about why his leg is so sore! Lifting the blanket he's been sleeping under, he finds a very large and painful tattoo of a turtle on his leg! Sonya is highly amused, and pokes Toadie's leg. He doubles over in agony, and realises it's permanent. Sonya cackles and walks off into the other room.
Kyle is also doing some sofa- snoring. He is wearing a cowboy hat. Chris comes in and wakes him up; Kyle can't remember anything about the night before. Chris quickly tells Kyle about Scotty turning up, and coming onto him again.
KYLE: Here we go. I know it might be hard for you to believe that some guys don't have the hots for you, mate, but it's true.
CHRIS: He put his hand on my leg. He tried to kiss me. He said no- one has to know.
KYLE: … For real?
CHRIS: For real.
KYLE: What are you going to tell Georgia?
CHRIS: I have no idea! Would she even believe me?
KYLE: We can't keep it from her.
CHRIS: Yeah, I know that. But how do I tell her?
Chris and Kyle wander across the road to see Georgia. Chris is worried Georgia will blame him, or freak out, but Kyle just tells him to stand his ground; Chris can't let Georgia keep going out with Scotty while he's ‘hitting on dudes'. Just then, Scotty and Georgia pull up in his pick- up, and say hello. Chris asks for a word with Georgia in private, but Scotty interjects; they have something to tell them first. Georgia lifts her hand to reveal an engagement ring – Scotty has just asked her to marry him! Chris and Kyle are gobsmacked as Scotty brazenly extracts hugs from each of them!
