Down The Well
Paige is sleeping in Tyler's arms (getting his obligatory shirtless scene out the way for this episode). They've clearly 'taken things to the next level'... inside an old well. Ew! She checks her phone then panics, waking Tyler up. She tells him it's 9:08 and they're going to miss the drop. She shouts at him to hurry, before grabbing the bag of cash and climbing out of the well.
Georgia apologises again to Sonya and Toadie for what happened, but they say it's fine. Karl says even if Nell did have a second dose of paracetemol, she would probably be okay, possibly experiencing some vomiting. Sonya is glad she came in when she did. Toadie asks if they need to stay overnight as Nell only had a mild reaction to the bee sting, but Karl would like to keep her in overnight for observation. Karl says that Nell would be likely to suffer a similar or worse reaction if she were stung again, so she should try and stay away from bees from now on.
As Karl leaves the ward, Georgia follows. She asks Karl what course of action he plans on taking, if he plans to report her. He says he isn't sure yet.
Paige and Tyler walk in, explaining that they have missed out on the chance to offload the cash so have left it at the garage. Paige says this 'life of crime' thing is not her scene. He flirtatiously offers to keep her company if she's feeling nervous. She says they need a good sleep and a clear head to work out what they're going to do about Michelle, she doesn't want Michelle to think they're stuffing her around. Tyler says they'll just re-arrange the drop. Paige says she's going to go home and get an early night. Tyler leans in to kiss her but she backs away before saying goodnight and leaving.
It's the following morning. Nate explains to Susan that he didn't have a goodnight sleep, he's been thinking about what Sheila said the other day about being a coward regarding dating.
SUSAN: I think you'll know instinctively when the time is right, and until then it's not for anyone to judge. Certainly not Sheila.
NATE: Thanks. For the coffee and the chat.
SUSAN: Any time.
Number 26 Back Yard
Sheila is watering the plants with a hose when Susan arrives to talk about her calling Nate a coward for not moving on from Chris. Sheila says Nate gave as good as he got, and a few home truths never hurt anyone.
SUSAN: Nate isn't as tough as he seems. Chris was his first serious relationship, it was the first time he let his guard down and he really opened up to someone.
SHEILA: But that's why he needs to get back on the horse, because as they say, practice makes perfect.
SUSAN: You need to tread more gently with him.
SHEILA: He needs a good kick up the bum. If he doesn't get out there now, all the good guys will be taken.
SUSAN: He will start dating again, when he's ready. In the meantime, Sheila, you've just got to stop interfering. Okay.
As Susan leaves, Sheila points her hose at Susan, tempted to spray her for a moment before deciding not to.
Kyle rushes over and says good morning to Karl.
KARL: Okay, I think I know why you're standing here awkwardly in front of me, so why don't you get it off your chest?
Kyle says Georgia is beating herself up over what happened and asks if he's going to report it, but Karl says he has to follow protocol and it doesn't mean there will be major repercussions for Georgia anyway. Kyle thinks Georgia's reputation would suffer again and so will her confidence. Kyle says Georgia doesn't need this right now, along with the stress of her mother getting sick, organising her cancer treatment, and everything that went on with Nick. Karl says he'll factor it all in when he makes a decision.
Tyler tells Nate that he usually wants to bail after he hooks up with a girl, but he isn't like that with Paige, he wants to hang out with her even more. Nate questions what he means, as he thought he and Paige have been together for a while. Tyler covers by saying it's been casual until now.
NATE: Wow, you must be evolving.
Paige tells Lauren that she's been holding back, after letting her guard down too soon with Mark, she can't let that happen again. Lauren says if she's having these thoughts and fears then it could be getting serious.
Tyler tells Nate that Paige is awesome and he really likes her. Nate laughs, he's getting a sense of déją vu as that's exactly what he said about Imogen a few weeks ago.
Paige says Tyler has been dating different girls since he got here, and she's got to be careful. Lauren doesn't want her to be so careful that she cheats herself out of being happy. She deserves to be happy, and deserves to have everything she ever wanted.
Tyler knows that there is something between him and Paige. There must have been something between Nate and Chris when they started out. Tyler loves that rush you get with a new relationship. Nate realises he misses that rush too. Tyler realises he's really into Paige.
Georgia tells Toadie that her dad is finding it difficult to find someone to look after the farm while he and her mum are in Germany. Georgia asks how Nell is doing. Toadie says she's fine, watching the Wiggles. Georgia offers to watch her, asking Toadie if he trusts her. Toadie calls her an idiot, of course he trusts her. He understands she's got a lot going on with her mum and that's why she almost made that mistake last night. He and Sonya have already put it behind them. Toadie suggests she take some time off to focus on her mum, on getting her to Germany and getting her better.
TOADIE: When someone is sick you just have to do whatever it takes. Your dad's not that good in a crisis, I think you know that, otherwise you wouldn't be this stressed out. Take some time off.
Georgia thanks Toadie and hugs him.
TOADIE (with a silly voice): Don't trust me. You're an idiot!
GEORGIA: You're an idiot!
GEORGIA (laughing): Urgh!
Sheila assures Nate that she and Susan are both coming from the same place, they want him to be happy. She says Susan was right, she was a bit insensitive and it isn't easy moving on from your first love. Nate says that actually Sheila gave him the push he really needed, and after his chat with Tyler he wants to feel that rush when you date someone new again. Sheila spots a handsome, well dressed guy at the bar and points him out to Nate.
SHEILA: And even though I do say so myself, I consider my gaydar spot on.
Sheila says Nate has a break due, and she will make it an extended one. Nate psychs himself up and goes over to talk to the guy, asking to play him at a game of pool. The guy agrees, and introduces himself as Alistair.
Karl invites Georgia in. Georgia tells Karl he should report the incident. It is the right thing to do and she should never have suggested that he do otherwise. Karl was leaning towards that decision. Georgia says she's already told the hospital that she's going to take some leave, Karl thinks that'll appease the powers that be. Georgia says she needs to ensure everything is in place for her mum to get to Germany.
Georgia talks to Kyle about Germany. Her dad isn't coping with the idea of travelling to Germany, she thinks he's not finding anyone to look after the farm because he's scared about going to a foreign country and all of the uncertainty. Their relationship suffered when Rhonda was diagnosed the first time. Georgia thinks she should go to Germany in her dad's place. She understands the medical side of things too, especially after working with Nick. She's already asked the hospital and they're okay with it. Georgia can't focus on her work right now, she needs to focus on her mum. Kyle hugs Georgia and says he supports her, but he'll miss her. Georgia tells Kyle she doesn't want to go without him, and asks him to go to Germany with her.
Nate tells Sheila that things are going well with Alistair. He goes back to play pool, when Susan joins Sheila. Sheila says that Susan owes her an apology, and asks her to have a look at Nate.
SUSAN: Yeah, he's chatting to a customer, that's generally what he does during a shift.
SHEILA: It's a prospective date. And all he needed was a little nudge from me.
Alistair asks Nate about the two old birds checking them out, wondering if it's over 50s singles day. Nate explains they're trying to be encouraging to him. Alistair wonders what he's talking about. Nate nervously asks if he would want to go out sometime. Alistair looks surprised at the offer, just as a group of Alistair's friends enter and head to the bar. Alistair laughs and asks if Nate's serious.
ALISTAIR: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
NATE: I just haven't been in the game for a while and misread the signs.
ALISTAIR: The signs, there were no signs!
NATE: I'm hearing you, it's all good.
ALISTAIR: All good, you reckon? Get lost before I belt you!
Alistair's friends have gathered around Nate, who backs away and goes behind the bar. Sheila asks if everything is okay, but Nate says he just wants to get back to work. Sheila gets a phone call from Kyle.
SHEILA: Got some time for your gran now, I thought with this Beautification project you'd... sorry, you're doing what now?
Kyle is now at the bar, with a beer in hand, and assures Sheila she supports Georgia. Sheila asks if he's thought this thing through, have they thought about the business? They're both going to be away for a long time with no money coming in. Kyle says Rhonda is sick, but Sheila thinks she doesn't need both of them and he worked so hard to get this Beautification job.
SHEILA: And what about Bossy? And what about me?
KYLE: And what about Rhonda? And Georgia? She's my wife, she needs me. It's the right thing to do.
Kyle walks off. Meanwhile Susan catches Nate and asks how the date went. Nate explains that Sheila's gaydar is off, he must be out of practice. He should try to remember not to ask out straight men on a date again. Susan is pleased he had a go but he thinks he humiliated himself. Meanwhile Alistair and his mates laugh loudly.
Tyler greets Paige and wants to update her on the Michelle situation. Michelle's annoyed but she didn't lose it with him. She'll let them know when she plans to collect it. Paige asks to talk about last night. She tells Tyler that she really likes him and she thinks he's a really nice guy. He says he likes her too. Paige then explains that she still has feelings for his brother. Tyler is visibly hurt by this but laughs it off and says he's cool with them being mates. Paige says last night was fun though. Tyler makes an excuse to go back to work and leaves.
Alistair and his mates are being very loud, while Kyle, Sheila and Nate complain about the noise. Sheila doesn't know why she thought Alistair would be good enough for Nate, he needs to pull his head in. Nate offers to handle it and heads over to talk to Alistair. Nate warns Alistair to keep the noise down. Alistair asks if Nate has it in for him since he turned him down. Nate says he's disturbing the other patrons who are trying to have a good time. While they chat, one of Alistair's friends starts recording the conversation on his phone.
ALISTAIR: Well I was trying to have a good time too until some loser tried to crack on to me. Why don't you get the hell out of my face?
Nate tries to escort Alistair out, when Alistair pushes Nate away. Nate takes the pool cue out of Alistair's hands.
ALISTAIR: You're messed up. Tell me some bull about serving in East Timor? As if they'd let a guy like you into the army.
SHEILA: That's enough. You heard him, it's time to leave!
ALISTAIR: I was just trying to play a game of pool and this guy keeps harassing me!
SHEILA: You have been making a nuisance of yourself for the last hour so get out!
ALISTAIR: Yeah well I'll finish my game first.
SHEILA: This is not a negotiation.
SHEILA: Don't you whatever me! I have had a gut-full of your type. Selfish, ignorant, entitled, disrespectful, lazy little so and so! I bet your mother ironed those chinos and I bet she still buys your underpants, doesn't she?! You need to learn to respect those who represent our country, who defend our country! You know nothing about honour, you mindless little twerp! GET OUT!
Alistair and his friends leave.
Tyler arrives and asks to speak to Paige for a minute. Lauren lets Paige go for a chat, so they go into the kitchen. Tyler tells Paige that some of the money is missing. Paige wonders if someone took it from the well. Paige panics. Michelle is expecting $50,000 and they're $6000 short.
- Georgia tells Kyle that he isn't going to Germany with her.
- Daniel and Amber are left alone, Amber wonders why Daniel makes it sound like a bad thing.
- Kyle tells Sheila that she's 'gone viral.' She's pleased before Kyle tells her that it isn't good.
- Paige and Tyler go down the well again. She says someone else went down the well and stole the money.
