- Naomi sees Toadie and Sonya kissing
Sonya and Toadie are chatting about the previous evening, Toadie rueing that he didn't get a selfie. Naomi sees them kissing and looks sad.
Naomi orders a coffee and exchanges a few words with Chris. He admits he was thrown at her confession, and says they are still friends. She tells him that she had real feelings for Toadie, and now it's embarrassing when she sees him. Chris says she needs to move on.
CHRIS: Meaningless fling?
NAOMI: Has that actually ever worked for you?
CHRIS: No, not even slightly. But you do live with the hottest guy in Erinsborough so you could at least enjoy the view.
Lucy walks in and Daniel and Lauren greet her. Daniel asks her how things are in New York, and she says that's enough about her. She asks about Paul, and Daniel says he's seeing Karl.
Karl asks Paul about the last few days. He says the medication isn't working, and Karl says it takes time.
PAUL: Every day is the same. I mean, things don't get any brighter.
Karl says he's already taking steps to pull himself back.
Kyle tells Georgia, who has just arrived, that the anti- venom has worked and Bossy is resting. Georgia asks if he wants to talk about last night and Kyle says it was stressful. He adds that the vet bill is big. Georgia looks upset.
Mark (who surprisingly enough is not shirtless) comes into the lounge room. He sees a mouse.
NAOMI: Oh yeah, Snoop.
MARK: Snoop? That thing has a name?
NAOMI: Yeah, Snoop Mouse. Oh, he's been around for ages.
NAOMI: Well, it's no biggie. He's harmless.
MARK: He's vermin! I can't believe you invited him in.
NAOMI: I didn't invite him in. He is very good at cleaning up my biscuit crumbs though.
He's horrified, and insists they break out the cleaning products straightaway.
Lucy comments that it's good that Paul's getting counselling. Daniel advises her not to mention it. She says she wishes she'd come over for the funeral but she was caught up. She's sure Paul will get through this.
LUCY: Not even a rhino could knock him down.
She asks him how he likes Erinsborough and he tells her he's met a girl.
Georgia is complaining to Sheila about Kyle calling her stupid. Sheila says he shouldn't have said that. Georgia says that Kyle doesn't seem to think there's a problem.
SHEILA: The best thing you can do is forgive him and move on, because that's what couples do.
Lucy hugs Paul, and offers to take him out to lunch. Paul says he's busy and walks into another room. Lucy comments that Paul is like a different person, and asks if there's anything she can do. Karl tells her to be supportive, and not to be impatient with him.
Mark is busy scrubbing the floor, while Naomi is not so busy flicking a duster here and there. He tells her to change so she can help properly.
NAOMI: I didn't realise it was casual Thursday. I didn't get the memo.
He comments that he doesn't want to get bleach on his good clothes. She suggests he could lose the singlet… and the trackies.
Kyle brings Bossy in, and Chris and Sheila are pleased to see her. Georgia looks sulky. Kyle puts his arm around her, and she strops off into the kitchen.
Naomi announces that the kitchen is all done. She says that after all that hard work, she wants to lie down. Mark says maybe it's the chemicals.
MARK: Well, it could be the chemicals. I love the smell, but sometimes they're overpowering.
NAOMI: Well, something's overpowering, but it's not the chemicals.
She suggests cleaning out the bedrooms, starting with hers. He agrees, then she starts undoing her top. He says he's flattered, but he's not interested.
By Lassiter's Lake
Naomi is sitting on a bench among the trees. Toadie sees her and goes to see what's wrong. She tells him that his being there is making it worse, then she says she's embarrassed.
NAOMI: I just threw myself at a guy who has no feelings for me either. How original is that?
He asks her what's wrong with being single. She tells him to go, as she's not going to drown herself in the lake. He says it would be difficult, as it's not that deep. Actually, it doesn't need to be deep.
Kyle notices that Georgia is quiet and tells her everything is fine. She says it isn't, because he called her stupid. He says he was stressed, and he apologises, which she doesn't accept.
KYLE: Look, I was worried about Bossy!
GEORGIA: And that makes it OK for you to lash out at me and five minutes later act like nothing's wrong?
He says she should know when he doesn't mean something, and she retorts that he should know when he's gone too far. She goes off in a sulk.
Mark sees the mouse and does a flying leap and catches it. Naomi arrives home and sees him on the floor. He says he's caught the mouse.
NAOMI: Don't hurt him. Don't hurt him!
MARK: I think it's me who's hurt.
NAOMI: What have you done?
MARK: I don't know. I think I broke a rib.
NAOMI: Well, as long as Snoop's all right.
Mark takes him out into the garden (possibly). Naomi apologises for what happened earlier. He says it's fine, but insists no more crumbs. She says she *will* get over Toadie.
Kyle is talking over the Georgia situation with Sonya, while Nell watches. She says that he's been able to express his thoughts, and although he didn't mean to hurt Georgia, her feelings aren't invalid.
Lauren is chatting to Lucy, who doesn't want to talk about New York. She claims it's jet- leg making her snappy. She drops her bag and a pregnancy test falls out.
Kyle apologises to Georgia for hurting her. He promises to listen when she needs to be heard, like she does for him. (She does??) She promises to talk about it when she's on the verge of tears, rather than expecting him to notice. He's pleased because blokes aren't the smartest. They kiss. Bossy whines - she's in the Boss- mobile, a basket on wheels, which means that they can take her for walks.
Paul is not keen on the idea of eating out, but Daniel insists, and says it was Lucy's idea. Paul says she never visits without an agenda and the two of them start to argue.
PAUL: Well, why don't you just do me a favour and fly back to New York?!
LUCY: Why don't you do everyone a favour and snap the hell out of it?!
Paul looks shocked.
