Georgia can't believe that someone would trash Harold's.
AMBER: And I can't believe Paige left the door open letting these idiots in, and Mum still hasn't fired her.
The cops think it was kids, and there's not much prospect of catching them. Meanwhile Amber says she has to worry about Josh and Imogen's driving tests, and she's going to test them on the road rules. Georgia wishes them good luck.
Libby and Ben come in. Libby says it's nice that her parents want her to stay, but she doesn't like being treated as a child. Ben comments that it sucks. She laughs, saying he *is* a child.
LIBBY: It's just a little bit spook at my age.
Ben asks if they will still be leaving. Libby says she's loved running her old school, but finding out her parents felt sorry for her has change things.
BEN: Not the part about you liking it here.
LIBBY: No, I guess not.
Libby asks him what he wants to do, as they're a team and they should both be happy. She says that she has happy memories, and it's a good community with good people. Ben agrees that they should stay.
Sheila finds Naomi looking at dresses online. It turns out that she is trying to sell some, which she claims is to pay off her debt to Paul. However, no- one has made a bid yet. Sheila reminds her that Paul had agreed to gradual payments. Georgia arrives and Kyle tells her that he's been speaking to an online furniture company who really liked his car bed range and wants to sell them. Naomi comes in and is less than thrilled to hear that Georgia's ring is a Canning family heirloom.
Libby tells her parents they were out of line, and they apologise. Karl says he realises it may not be the best thing for both of them. Libby says that she's talked to Ben, and that if he's happy to be here, she's prepared to consider staying longer. Karl frowns, then asks Ben if he's sure. He says he is.
Josh and Amber have been in the pool, with Amber testing Josh. Imogen comes and screams at him to get dressed because otherwise they'll be late. Amber and Josh agree that Amber shouldn't go because she'll stress Josh out. She gets a text from Daniel wanting to hang out.
Amber and Daniel flirt and start taking photos of each other, observed by Sheila and a gnome.
Ben is playing something melancholy on the guitar. Karl asks him why he didn't tell his mum the truth. Ben says that she obviously wants to stay. Karl says that Libby would be devastated to hear that Ben was sacrificing his happiness for hers. Karl promises not to say anything, but encourages Ben to talk to Libby about it. He says he can't, so Karl suggests there may be other possibilities.
KARL: Surely there's a solution that makes you both happy.
Amber tells Daniel she feels sorry for her dad feeling that he couldn't talk about his dad being an alcoholic. She apologises for talking too much, and Daniel apologises for questioning her, saying she's probably already talked about it with Josh. She looks uncomfortable, and says no. Daniel says they're even because he was "blabbing" about Paul the other day. GnomeCam™ is watching as Daniel says she looks really cool, and they nearly kiss.
Naomi asks about Georgia's ring, and why Kyle got it and not her. Sheila points out they weren't even on speaking terms, then explains that she'd given up on the idea of Naomi ever getting married.
SHEILA: I promise you, you will get first dibs on whatever piece of jewellery is left by whoever dies next.
NAOMI: Great, sensational! Shall we knock someone off the perch soon, then?
Amber gets a text saying that Imogen and Josh have passed their tests. Daniel asks if she wishes she was there, and she says she makes Josh nervous. Daniel asks what they are doing.
DANIEL: We said we wouldn't hang out anymore, but we do anyway and we both know that we nearly kissed before. You have a boyfriend and he's a really nice guy. This is wrong.
AMBER: You think I don't know that?
Amber says that this is all she thinks about, and it's driving her crazy. Daniel leaves to go to the darkroom.
Libby says that she and Ben have had a great chat, and Ben says that everywhere he looks, he thinks of his dad. Ben says he wants to change his name to Ben Kirk, which Karl and Susan are very pleased with. Libby and Ben are going to Oakey, to help Ben get to know his dad more.
BEN: And if I get to know him more, then maybe I won't feel like I miss him so much.
Libby says that after Oakey, they'll go back to Ballarat, because that's their home.
Josh and Imogen are pleased with themselves for passing their tests. Imogen goes to get off to buy coffees, and Amber tries to talk about Matt's dad, but Josh isn't really interested. He invites her for her a drive, but she claims she has an assignment she looks fed up.
Libby is packing, and Susan apologises again. Libby says she's enjoyed being back and Susan says she's given a lot to the school as a valued teaching professional, which Libby appreciates. Libby says she'd never swap Susan and they hug.
Imogen is sending a photo of her driving licence to some bloke that she's not that interested in (how random) and asks Amber why she's not out with Josh. Sheila wanders over, and comments that she thought Amber had an assignment, otherwise she didn't think Amber would have missed the chance to go for a first drive with Josh... Sheila puts a menu card with Daniel's picture on the table. Amber looks uncomfortable
Ben and Libby are leaving. Ben gives Susan a story he has written: "The Space Father Left". He says it was either that, or "The Principal Who Chucked A Sickie".
SUSAN: Hey, hey! I did not fake anything!
LIBBY: (laughs) You keep saying that.
Outside the Bric- a- brac shop
Sheila tells Naomi that she was obviously letting off steam during their Self- Defence class, and Naomi says she has been feeling stressed. She goes off to take a call, and Josh drives up. Sheila suggests to him that he might like to take Amber for a romantic dinner, and not to take her for granted. He says he'll take note.
Meanwhile Naomi is talking to Lee (aka FakeStalker™ ) and asking him for another day to pay the $5000.
Daniel is in the darkroom when Amber comes in. He tells her he's been trying to avoid her, but she says she can't stop thinking about what they were talking about.
AMBER: I want to break up with Josh so I can be with you.
