In the spa, Kyle is treating Georgia to a breakfast of champagne, oysters and strawberries – but he's mildly put out that she's brought a wedding magazine into the hot tub with them. He suggests they think about something else for a change, such as where they'll live after they're married. Georgia's been putting off that conversation after the controversy over No 24 with Gem, but now she decides she wants to get a place for just her and Kyle, figuring Gem still won't want to live with them. Kyle is thrilled, and they agree to start house- hunting today. No prizes for guessing where they'll look first…
Gem is just printing out Kate's draft email to Kyle, when she's interrupted by Toadie and Sonya coming in with Nell. Sonya explains she needs to check her blog, as her online friend Sleepless was up all night with her baby, and she wants to help. Georgia comes in, enthusing about what a perfect day it is – and starts singing about how amazing Kyle is. Georgia and Gem were scheduled to go dress- shopping, but Georgia asks if they can take a rain- check, saying she has ‘stuff' to do with Kyle. The girls agree to meet for lunch instead. Gem slips the printed email into her handbag.
Erinsborough High School
Seeing Gem alone in the classroom, Bailey goes in to ask her if she found anything in Kate's emails about her. Gem tells him she did, but not to worry about it – her job is safe, as long as they're smart and Bailey does what she says. Seeing Kate waiting outside the room, Gem tells Bailey to go back to class, and he leaves.
Kate comes in, and tells Gem that Bailey's parents are concerned about his crush on her.
GEM: I've got it sorted.
KATE: Really? Because it didn't look like it just then.
GEM: Since when is this your business?
Kate says she knows they're not friends, but warns Gem as a colleague that teachers are always blamed in these scenarios – she's ‘seen it happen at this school' (but declines to mention about her own pupil- kissing antics). She suggests Gem should have a third party present when talking to Bailey, as a precaution.
GEM: It's not necessary. And I'm not the one who has anything to hide here. If you don't mind, I've got work to do.
Kate stomps off, and Gem gives her an evil look as she leaves.
Sheila organises the troops – namely, Chris and Toadie – as plans for the surprise engagement party progress. She also informs them about Kyle and Georgia's decision to move in together.
TOADIE: Thank god she's finally moving out… I hope he's not moving into ours?
Kyle and Georgia come across the road and – surprise, surprise – Kyle reveals he's spoken to Ajay, and that he's agreed to lease No 24 to them, starting straight away.
KYLE: What with all these other people who keep pulling out of renting here, he's kind of desperate for a tenant.
Georgia's over the moon, and instantly agrees.
Erinsborough High School
Susan looks as if she's feeling a little out of sorts, when Gem turns up to see her. Gem claims that Bailey's been asking her a lot of unnecessary questions about homework, and has decided Susan's right about him having a crush on her. Gem says she doesn't think she should be talking to Bailey without a third party present.
GEM: I wanted to tell you in case people saw us talking and got the wrong idea.
By which, of course, she means, ‘in case Kate blabbed'. Susan suggests they bring Matt and Lauren in for a counselling session, but Gem's against that idea as it would be ‘very traumatic' for Bailey. Susan asks if she can suggest another approach, and Gem says she can.
Georgia and Kyle are making a list of furnishings for their new house when Gem comes in to meet Georgia for lunch. Georgia explains they've been house- hunting, and tells Gem they've decided to move into No 24, just the two of them. Georgia asks if Gem minds, but she insists not – she's ‘really happy' for them. Georgia decides to shout her lunch, and goes to get some menus. This gives Gem the perfect opportunity to remind viewers what she has in her bag, by pulling out the email printout, then pushing it back in again.
Erinsborough High School
In her office, Susan informs Bailey that he's going to be moved to a different biology class.
BAILEY: But that means someone other than Miss Reeves will teach me.
Well- spotted, Bailey. He demands to know if someone's said something, but Susan just says she thinks he's been distracted in Gem's class, and needs a fresh start. Bailey's not happy, but when Susan mentions the prospect of getting his parents involved, he grudgingly agrees. Once he's left, Susan wipes her brown, and again looks as if she's feeling out of sorts.
In the corridor, Bailey catches up with Gem, and asks if she's heard about him being moved.
GEM: You should be in class.
BAILEY: Yeah, with my new biology teacher who isn't you.
GEM: I can't talk about this.
BAILEY: Look, do you think they know about the email?
BAILEY: Well, what if she suspects…?
GEM: We haven't done anything wrong.
BAILEY: Yes we have. I hate…
GEM: No, we haven't. We haven't done anything wrong. Just keep calm, and everything will settle down.
BAILEY: When can we see each other next?
GEM: I'm not sure. I've just had really bad news.
BAILEY: Well if you need someone to talk to, I'm a really good listener.
GEM: No. I'll see you later.
Gem walks off, leaving Bailey looking sad.
Penthouse du Paul
Kate is writing Kyle a card for his engagement (as opposed to Kyle and Georgia!) when Kyle himself arrives in the lift. He's come to tell her that she and Georgia are moving into No 24 tomorrow, but that he's paying until the end of the month at No 26 so they have time to find someone else. Kate tells him she's not sure when she'll be back in Ramsay Street, as she's enjoyed living with Paul. Kyle tells her that he, Chris and Sheila have missed her.
KYLE: Kate, I know things haven't always been easy between us. But it's been great sharing a house with you. And I know you're one of Georgia's best mates, but you're one of my best mates too. I hope it stays that way.
KATE: Yeah, so do I.
Kyle leaves again, and Kate writes ‘and Georgia' in the card! She looks sad.
Georgia is appalled when Gem flounces in in a frilly and rather scant bridesmaid's dress, which she's bought without checking with Georgia. Georgia hasn't bought her wedding dress yet and doesn't know if Gem's dress will match, saying she should have asked her first.
GEM: It's not all about you, Georgia!
GEORGIA: It is my wedding. And that is completely inappropriate! You're gonna have to take it back.
Gem stomps out, and Georgia shakes her head in disbelief.
Later, Georgia expresses said disbelief to Sonya (and Nell), comparing Gem to Pippa Middleton in the bride- upstaging stakes!
SONYA: Okay, well to give Pippa her due, I doubt she would have worn a bridesmaid's dress without Kate's approval.
But Sonya's attempts to defuse the situation don't go down well with Georgia – because lest anyone forget, She Is The Bride. However, Sonya reminds Georgia that Gem is sensitive about weddings, because of her fiancé leaving her. Georgia then feels guilty, figuring that she's probably upset Gem by moving in with Kyle, as well as vetoing her dress. Sonya says that equally, Georgia shouldn't have to tiptoe around Gem; this is her day, and she's sure Gem will apologise.
Georgia takes a phone call from Kyle, who needs to see her right away.
Kyle carries Georgia over the threshold and into No 24, where he's lovingly covered the floor in candles.
In the garden, preparations for the party are in full swing, with Brad, Kate, Sheila, Toadie and Sonya already in attendance. Sonya has brought a present for the bride- and- groom- to- be – a rewrapped ice- cream maker, that someone bought her and Toadie for their wedding! She can't remember who it was, but says they never use it so they might as well pass it on!
Kyle presents Georgia with a present in the form of an antique teapot, which belonged to his great gran. He says he knows they don't have a lot of money, but that he'll always provide for them.
KYLE: And as long as we've got each other, we've got everything. For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish from this day forward, till death do us part.
Georgia kisses him.
GEORGIA: I love you, husband- to- be.
KYLE: I love you, wife- to- be.
GEORGIA: You know, this house only needs one more thing to be perfect.
GEORGIA: A little christening?
They start getting intimate.
In the garden, Gem asks after a folder Toadie has prepared; he explains it's full of congratulation emails from friends and relatives who couldn't make the party. Gem's ears prick up, as Sheila prepares to call the happy couple to get them to come over.
No 24 / No 26
Kyle and Georgia seem like they're about half way to TITTNL, when Chris and Sheila ring them simultaneously. Sheila tells Kyle that Bossy's kennel is on fire (!) and that he needs to come home right away!
Minutes later, Georgia and Kyle rush into the back yard, to find Bossy not on fire after all – and to be greeted with a shout of ‘surprise' from all the RSRs. Everyone starts hugging, and Georgia apologises to Gem for their fall- out earlier. Gem admits she was out of order, and says she hates fighting with her.
GEORGIA: No, I should have been more thoughtful. I know what you've been through.
GEM: No – you're lovely, and wonderful, and people should treat you better.
They hug. Meanwhile, Chris notices that Kate is looking glum, and goes over to talk to her. She says she'll be fine, but is looking sadly at Kyle and Georgia embracing.
While everyone else is otherwise engaged, Gem creeps over to the table where Toadie's folder of emails is, and slips the printout of Kate's draft email to Kyle into the folder too.
Later in the evening, everyone gathers in the house for present- giving. Georgia and Kyle open their ice- cream maker from Sonya, but Sheila spots it and reveals that she was the one who gave it to Sonya and Toadie in the first place! Sonya pretends that they use theirs so much, they bought a duplicate for Kyle and Georgia, but Sheila obviously doesn't believe her.
Toadie decides it's time for speeches, and Kyle tells all the guests how much it means to them to have all their friends here to celebrate their engagement. Despite some heckling from some extras hailing from Franga, Kyle concludes his speech by telling Georgia how much he loves her. It's then Georgia's turn to speak, and she tells everyone how much she loves living in Erinsborough – calling Kate ‘the best friend she could ever want' and Kyle ‘her soulmate'. Gem watches coldly.
GEORGIA: Ramsay Street is the most brilliant street in the world, and I never want to leave. Ever.
Toadie passes them the emails from those who couldn't make it – the first, of course, being from Honga! Kyle reads this, followed by Georgia reading an email from Toadie's mum Angie.
GEORGIA: And the next one is from… Kate Ramsay?
Kate looks confused.
GEORGIA (reading): Dear Kyle – you must know what this email's about. You are not here, so I can't talk to you, but we have to forget that that night between us ever happened…
Everyone starts laughing, thinking it's a joke – except Kate, who looks gradually more horrified.
GEORGIA (reading): It was a mistake. We shouldn't have done it, and we both know that. I never wanted to hurt Georgia, and I know you don't either – that's why we have to keep it to ourselves… No- one needs to know…
Georgia's now looking pretty horrified too. As is Kyle, and everyone else.
