- Toadie discovers that he got a tattoo on his bucks' night
- Rhys gets a letter from his father, but isn't interested
- Scotty comes on to Chris
- Georgia tells Chris and Kyle that Scotty proposed
Kyle grumbles that Scotty is a scumbag - proposing to cover his tracks. Chris says they should definitely tell Georgia, but Kyle replies that it will look like they are trying to spoil things. Chris says they can't let her marry someone who's already looking for a bit on the side.
Georgia shows Sonya her engagement ring. Sonya is not over- enthusiastic and points out they have just got back together. Georgia says they've been together seven years and being apart only showed how much they love each other.
Chris says she's going to get hurt - which Kyle agrees he doesn't want - and Chris says they have to tell her. Kyle says it should be Chris, because Georgia would think he - Kyle - was making it up. Chris says he thought nothing happened. Kyle says nothing did, but even so, it should be Chris who tells her. He unenthusiastically leaves for work with Scotty. Chris is equally pleased about things.
CHRIS: Great. Thanks. You've been a real rock!
Georgia asks Sonya to be pleased for her, and Sonya says she's thrilled and congratulates her. They go off to look at Sonya's bridal magazines.
Over on the sofa, Scotty comments to Toadie that the next buck's party will be his. Toadie admits to being surprised, but Scotty says he's had it planned for a while, and he's not going to let Georgia get away again. He asks about Toadie's buck's night and Toadie shows him his tattoo. Callum wanders in and comments that it's massive. Toadie says he had noticed. Scotty asks who did it, and Toadie says he's going to find out.
Paul's evil lair - Lassiters
Kate is checking out the model of the new apartments. Paul has told her and Sophie that they are all moving into the penthouse apartments. Kate thinks it's amazing, but Sophie is underwhelmed. Paul says it will be a good move for them as a family.
Toadie comes in looking for Kyle. Rhys says he's at work. Toadie shows him his tattoo, which Rhys says is "low- rent". Toadie thinks that Kyle, as chief idiot, was responsible, and asks Rhys if it can be removed. Rhys says it can, for a lazy few grand, and it will need several sittings.
TOADIE: What do you think I should do?
RHYS: My medical opinion is, live with it.
TOADIE: Well, thanks for your advice, doctor.
RHYS: A pleasure as always, Toad.
Meanwhile Chris has answered the phone:it's Rhys dad. He tells Rhys he wants to visit, but Rhys says he can't guarantee to be in.
Rani is looking through the information about the penthouse, while Sophie plays guitar.
RANI: This is pretty cool. Who wouldn't want to live in a penthouse?
SOPHIE: Me, that's who.
Rani comes across a leaflet for "The NSW Conservatorium of Music". Sophie tells her that it's an amazing place that gets all the best teachers, which she could never go to. Rani says it sounds perfect, except that she would miss her. Sophie tells her not to worry, because Paul will never let her go. Rani says there's not harm in applying. She gets an application form on her form and fills in Sophie's name. They work through the form and get to the part about parents / guardians. Sophie says she can't tell Paul.
RANI: This is an amazing opportunity, and I wouldn't be a very good friend if I let you ignore it because Paul's a control freak.
She tells Sophie if she wants to do this, she has to be prepared to fight for it.
Kyle arrives at work and finds Scotty eating the lunch Georgia had made him. Kyle says he must be feeling pleased with himself. Scotty says he was nervous about proposing. Kyle says Chris said he went round. Scotty says they watched the cricket: it was a close game. Kyle says that Chris didn't mention that. Scotty scowls and asks Kyle if he minds him leaving for a little while: he wants to see Georgia before she leaves work. Kyle says she's got a big heart and Scotty says it's why he's marrying her. Kyle frowns.
Chris is putting stuff in the bin, and Scotty sneaks up behind him and grabs him. Chris tells him he's an idiot. Scotty asks what the problem is, and tells him to lighten up.
CHRIS: Why don't you man up and tell your girlfriend, no, sorry, your *fiancée* the truth.
Scotty remembers having a beer and pizza, but has conveniently "forgotten" that he cracked on to Chris and says he would never do anything to hurt Georgia. Chris says she deserves to know what she's getting herself into. Scotty asks who she's going to believe, him or Chris.
SCOTTY: If you had any sense, you'd keep your mouth shut, princess.
Toadie is making a phonecall, as Paul, Sophie and Kate come out of the hotel. Sophie tells Paul about the Conservatorium. Kate asks Sophie how long she's been thinking about it, and Sophie says a while. Kate says they'll support her, and asks Paul for confirmation. Paul agrees: after all, it's her dream. Sophie says it's expensive, but Kate says they'll sort it out. Sophie is thrilled.
Kyle comes up to Toadie, and Toadie confronts him about the turtle. Kyle denies all knowledge. After the karaoke bar, he says the rest of the night is a blur.
KYLE: I do love a good turtle though. (He goes off laughing.)
TOADIE: (concerned) Did we go to karaoke?
Chris tells Rhys he has another call from his dad, but Rhys says he's not in. Chris takes a message, which Rhys isn't interested in reading. Chris presumes he's not calling back. Rhys says it's not his business, but no. Chris says it wouldn't hurt to hear him out. Rhys tells Chris that his dad wanted nothing to do with him when his mum got sick. Chris says he had issues with his dad too. Rhys says it's nothing like that. A real father doesn't walk out on his family. Chris points out they have the same DNA, which is obviously a sore point and Rhys shouts that he doesn't need reminding. Chris says he'll have to face him one day, so why not now.
Toadie arrives home and tells Sonya he hasn't found out who was responsible for the tattoo. Even the man at the tattoo shop couldn't read the signature. Sonya is upbeat: they've now had three bits of bad luck (the invitations, Toadie's back, and the tattoo) so that's it now, because troubles come in threes.
TOADIE: What about Karl singing?
Sonya changes the subject to their honeymoon in the Whitsundays. Sea, sun, sand. Turtles!
Meanwhile, Scotty tells Georgia that Kyle is acting weird, picking on everything he does. He thinks it's probably because of the engagement. Georgia says it doesn't sound like Kyle, and he's got no reason to be anything but happy. Scotty says that Kyle "kind of" implied he's not good enough for her. Georgia is annoyed, and says she has to go to work…
…but at Dial- a- Kyle, she marches up to Kyle and asks why he's giving Scotty a hard time. She says she's marrying Scotty whatever he thinks happened between them. He says that's not what's going on, and he needs to tell her something. She says it's irrelevant.
Elaine tells Rhys she won't see his dad because she knows how much he hurt Rhys, and she hates him. However, she expects that Rhys will see him. Rhys assures her he won't, but she says he could sell ice to Eskimos. Then she gives Rhys all the letters he had written to his dad when he was young, which his dad had returned unread.
ELAINE: He chose to miss out on you.
Rhys is sitting in the kitchen when Chris comes home. Chris doesn't see him at first and is startled when he turns and sees him. Chris asks if he is OK, and Rhys apologises for snapping at him. Chris asks if he wants to talk about it, though is not surprised when he turns him down. Chris goes off to bed. Rhys opens a letter and starts to read. At first he smiles, then he looks sad.
Sophie is playing her guitar, while Paul and Kate are in the kitchen. Kate is surprised he's dealing with it so will, as he's normally so protective. Paul says they don't know if she will get in, but he hopes for her sake she does. Kate says he can't handle the thought of her leaving. Paul asks if she can, and Kate says it's Sophie's dream. Paul says that at 15, she'll have a different dream next week. Kate says she's got her heart set on this course, but Paul reckons there are probably plenty of good courses in Melbourne.
