- Imogen is doing work experience with Lauren, while Amber does hers with Terese
- Gemma rudely insults Josie in class
- Gemma defends herself to Susan, and says that Josie is exaggerating.
- Susan tells Kate that she has to take Gemmas word on the matter, but Kate thinks shes lying.
- Georgia is angry at Kate for making stuff up about her cousin, and tells her since she hates Gemma so much she probably doesnt need to see her either.
Kyle tries to reassure Kate after her argument with Georgia. Perhaps Georgia misunderstood what Kate was saying. He tells Kate that theyll sort this out, as theyre too good mates not to. Georgia arrives and invites Kyle to go to the movies with her and Gem tonight. When she sees Kate there, Georgia refuses to enter, and tells Kyle shell wait for him outside. Kate runs after Georgia, telling her this is silly. Sheila observes this and asks Kyle what shes missed.
Kate catches up with Georgia in the driveway, asking why shes behaving like this as she thought they were friends. Georgia says that Gem is her family and she doesnt want to take sides. Kate doesnt have a problem with Gem personally, but she does have a problem with Gems conduct at school. Georgia says Gem would never deliberately hurt someone, suggesting that Kate made this up because she feels threatened by her. Georgia refuses to consider that Kate could be telling the truth, and tells Kate that if she can't keep her opinions about her cousin to herself then they have nothing else to talk about.
As Georgia walks away, Sheila joins Kate, having been filled in by Kyle. She suggests that she give Georgia space, and be sensitive. Family is family, and she should imagine how shed react if someone had a go about Harry or Sophie. If Kate wants to stay friends with Georgia then she should let her find out the truth about her cousin by herself.
Terese is impressed when she sees Imogen serving a customer at Harolds, and commends her good customer service. Imogen says shes enjoying working at Harolds, and talks about how fun it is working for Lauren, and how everyone loves Lauren for making them all feel welcome. Imogen continues to share Laurens great cooking tips, while Terese looks like shes sucking a lemon. Lauren walks by with a delivery which shes taking to Lassiters. She praises Imogens good work and Terese thanks her, but looks very jealous.
Lauren brings the delivery and sees Amber working behind the desk at Lassiters. Amber raves on about how great a mentor Terese is, and Lauren is clearly jealous. Amber sees the sandwiches that Lauren made, calling them cute, and tells her to take them through to the conference centre as Amber has to do some things for Terese.
Lauren looks at a website on how to create a 5 Year Plan. Matt is looking at the photo that Bailey took of him for the Dads of Erinsborough competition, asking Lauren if she gets the feeling that it is staring at you, and wonders if he should take it down. Amber returns, and Lauren excitedly tells her about the website. Amber tells Lauren that shes going to hang out with Josh and will check it out later. After Amber leaves, Matt asks Lauren what is going on. Lauren says that Amber thinks Terese is amazing.
LAUREN: Which clearly means she sees me as some mumsy doormat.
MATT: Compared to Terese, I'm mumsy. Its true, you know shes like half robot under those frocks.
Number 22 Back Yard
Terese is attempting to cook, when Brad arrives, surprised shes home from work. Terese tells Brad about how much Imogen is enjoying her work experience, and how Lauren is teaching her how to bake. Brad helps Terese switch the barbeque on, which makes Terese admit that shes feeling a little inadequate compared to Lauren. Shes worried that Imogens missed the womanly motherly things because shes been so focused with work. Brad admits they missed things with Imogen before but theyre on top of it now. Terese is a great mother, who cares if she can bake or not.
Matt tells Lauren that shes successful in her own way, she runs her own business. As Matt looks at Baileys photo of him, Lauren has an idea of something that she meant to finish a while ago that and she bets its something that Terese can't do.
Later Matt sits for a portrait as Lauren sketches him. Since they lost the old portrait of the house, this is the one she wants to replace it with.
Georgia, Gem and Kyle return from the cinema. Gem is cynical about the romcom they watched, but Georgia loved it. As Georgia leaves, Kyle asks what is with Gem, he thought all chicks were into romcoms. Georgia worries that the movie brought up bad memories about her ex- fiancé leaving her after her accident. Georgia feels bad that this triggered something. Kyle invites Georgia over to his to give Gem some space, but Georgia doesnt want to go over there, she wants to stay with Gem.
Matt and Brad are exercising (as its the only way that real men talk, according to Neighbours). They discuss how Lauren and Terese have a bee in their bonnets about what the girls said during work experience. They discuss what they should do to sort this out, Matt has an idea.
Imogen and Amber chat about their work experience. Amber is pleased to have worked out that its not what she wants to do with her life. Josh sits down and invites Amber to go with him for an interview tomorrow, he could use the moral support. Imogen rolls her eyes as Josh and Amber start kissing. They invite Imogen out to the cinema with her, but she can't as she has homework. Amber tells her to get a life, and suggests they set her up with one of Joshs swimming buddies. Imogen says she wouldnt date a swimmer if she paid her. Amber suggests asking Mason if he knows anyone, Imogen gets defensive and tells her not to set her up.
They both get a text message from their dads, asking them to call them. They think something weird is going on.
Kyle sits with Bossy, watching a movie. Kate leaves her room, and wipes away tears from her eyes. Kyle notices shes upset and tells her that Georgia will come around. Kate says its okay, theres nothing anyone can do.
Georgia apologises to Gem for the romcom, Gem says its fine. Georgia asks Gem about her lovelife, if theres anyone she likes, but Gem says there hasnt been anyone. Kyle comes round, and asks Gem to give him and Georgia a chance to chat about Kate. Gem leaves to check her emails, but hides around the corner eavesdropping on the conversation. Kyle tells Georgia that Kate is really upset and tells her this is getting out of hand. He asks Georgia to go and see Kate. Gem intentionally pours wine over her own shirt, and comes back into the room, laughing about what a klutz she is. Georgia laughs and goes to get Gem a top.
Gem drops the smile, and ask Kyle if Kate sent him over to talk to Georgia. Kyle denies that, but Gem thinks that he and Kate must be pretty close. Kyle says theyre just friends, Gem questions this, but then puts on a fake laugh and says shes just kidding, she knows that Georgias his girlfriend.
Amber finds Lauren looking at the portrait she did of Matt. Amber asks if Matt ever found the old sketch, or found out what was on the back of it, and he didnt. Amber says the new portrait is amazing. Lauren is happy with it and puts on the wall. Amber tells her that if Lauren drew landscapes she bets people would buy them. Lauren is suspicious of Ambers compliments, and realises that Matt has told her to be nice to her. Amber says shes sorry she upset Lauren in the first place. Just because she thinks Terese is great doesnt mean Lauren isnt awesome too. Amber says that Imogen has been raving about her, and she even had to tell Imogen to shut up as she was making her nauceous. Lauren smiles and says shes glad Imogens enjoying herself.
Imogen brings Terese a coffee. Terese wonders if she should be worried. Imogen says that Brad sent her out to talk to her because she upset her. Terese admits she was thrown by what Imogen said. Imogen says that just because she thinks Lauren is cool doesnt mean she wants Terese to be like her. Imogen says she likes Terese just the way she is.
Brad and Matt are pleased that their plan worked, and ask each other what they offered the girls to be nice to their mums. Brad offered Imogen two driving lessons at the weekend, but admits he was planning on doing that anyway. Matt agreed to take Amber shopping. They toast to their happy wives and happy lives.
Kyle returns home and bumps into Kate whos just come out from the shower wearing only a towel. She apologises as she thought she was home alone. She says Kyle just missed Chris who has gone out to another club. She asks if he thinks Chris is okay, the clubbing thing isnt like him. Kyle shrugs it off, saying its his life. Kyle says that he doesnt want to get involved in this issue between her and Georgia. Kate wonders where this is coming from, as she didnt ask him to take sides. Kyle tells Kate that Gem wondered why he was so worried. Kate says hes allowed to have his own friends, but Kyle says he doesnt want to get in the middle of this.
Bric- A- Brac Shop Exterior
Matt finds Sheila searching through a box outside the Bric- A- Brac shop. Matt says hi, as Sheila shows Matt some artwork, it happens to be Laurens portrait of the house at Mount Isa. Matt looks at the house on the front, while Sheila looks at the portrait of Brad on the back. Sheila notes how its such a good likeness, and the short hair looks very good. Matt turns it over and sees the portrait of Brad on the back.
