Tyler turns up after a long night. A bad tempered Michelle walks up.
MICHELLE: Where is my car?
Terese is not very hungry. She admits that Brad was right: she was prepared to let Nick go. He says she is a caring sister. He suggests they both take a day off.
BRAD: You need… WE need this. Let's take some time together, reconnect without any stresses or distractions. Who knows? We might like it.
Amber approaches Josh and asks if he's seen Bailey - he hasn't. Danni walks over with two coffees. Amber's not impressed that they are meeting. Josh tells Danni about Bailey.
AMBER: “Oh”. Is that all you've got to say? If it wasn't for you, he wouldn't be this messed up.
Michelle tells Tyler that the car was definitely dropped off and that Tyler had better find it. She gets a phone call, and Tyler goes outside. Imogen comes to talk to him. He's very short with her. She's just about to leave when Michelle comes out. He introduces her as a “sort of “ friend. Imogen says he can see whoever he likes.
A road somewhere
Bailey is asleep in the car, so Paige has found someone else to shout at. She challenges him about stealing cars.
BAILEY: It's not stealing, it's borrowing.
I don't know about Australia, but in England and Wales, I believe it would be “taking without consent”. Anyway, Paige shouts a bit more and off they go.
(ETA: Actually, I Googled it, and in Australia, they define it as theft irrespective of your intention.)
Lauren gets a call from Lou telling her about Bailey. She sees Brad and Terese having a picnic and sharing a tender moment. Terese sees her and calls over to her, but Lauren walks off.
TERESE: Did she just blank me.
Bailey claims he was going to return the car, but Lou is furious, and reminds him he's already got charges pending. Paige goes to take care of the car and Lou sends Bailey to get cleaned up.
In a phone box opposite the garage, Paige calls the police and reports the stolen car. She refuses to give her name. After she has finished, Tyler makes a call to Joey, asking him about the delivery and what Michelle is going to do.
Terese comes in to ask Lauren if she saw them earlier. Lauren explains that they looked so intimate, and she's lost that intimacy especially in a time of crisis. Terese hugs her.
Bailey apologises for what he's done. Lou says he's let the family down, and Bailey says he knows - he was running from the sadness.
BAILEY: I wanted to get caught. I wanted that. Because at least then, Gramps, there would be something else, something other than this heavy, horrible feeling that's constantly reminding me.
He hands Lou a letter, which arrived the previous day.
Terese tells Brad what Lauren said. She says she couldn't cope without him and he says it will never happen. She comments that something good has come out of what's happened recently.
TERESE: I now know how important family is. The family that we've made. You and the kids. I don't ever want to be without you Brad.
BRAD: Me either.
Josh and Danni are chatting. He encourages her by saying that he knows what it's like to make a stuff- up. She asks him if he wants to talk.
DANNI: You listened to me whinge. The least I could do is listen to you.
Imogen is looking at pictures of Tyler's night out with Kyle, Georgia and Nate. Paige asks if she's OK.
IMOGEN: I'm glad he's not upset, but does he have to be this not- upset?!
She tells Paige that Tyler has already moved on, and he clearly did not want to talk to her this morning. He came up with some excuse about a car being stolen from the garage, rather than telling her straight. Paige has a thought.
Michelle tells Tyler he has to find $8000 by next week. He says it's not fair as he didn't steal it. Paige arrives and tells him that Bailey took it. Michelle is inside and is listening to the conversation. Tyler asks where the car is, and Paige says the police are going to pick it up. Michelle walks out.
MICHELLE: I'm the owner of the car that your Bailey stole. You'd better hope the cops haven't picked it up yet, because I want it back now.
I think the word “owner” is used somewhat inaccurately there. Paige looks worried.
Lou tells Bailey that he's thinking of moving to Brisbane and he invites Bailey to come with him. He's already spoken to Kathy.
BAILEY: No, I can't leave Mum.
LOU: Mate, you can't stay here and give her grief either.
Bailey agrees, and Lou says he'll speak to Lauren. Bailey weeps.
Danni and Josh are talking about Nick. Josh says it hasn't been easy recently, and he says he's had a nice morning. They kiss.
Amber asks why Danni, and Josh says it wasn't planned. He says she's really nice, and Amber asks if he knows what she did.
JOSH: We all make mistakes.
AMBER: We don't all make mistakes that massive.
Josh asks about what happened on her wedding night, which Amber says is completely different. Amber challenges him about whether he's seeing Danni to get back at her, and asks if it's going to happen again. He says she has no right to ask him, and it's none of her business.
Paige tells Michelle that the cops already have the car. She tells Michelle to go and claim it and begs her not to say that it was Bailey who took it. Michelle tells her that she can't do that, because the car was stolen for her.
MICHELLE: The fact is, I'm down one car. So you pinheads can give me all the excuses you like about brothers and mistakes and police. I don't care. Within a week, you two are going to get me that 8 grand for that car or you will be paying a very different price.
PAIGE: That's impossible. We can't come up with 8 grand in a week.
MICHELLE: Well in that case, you'll have to steal me another car. I like red ones.
