- Brennan brother #3, Aaron, shows up as an exotic dancer at The Waterhole, much to Paul's fury
- Kyle loses his temper with Amy when she deliberately disobeys his instructions at work
- Karl tells Amber, Josh and Daniel that the baby looks likely to have a serious case of CDH
- Josh agrees to sell unapproved supplements for Forrest to earn more money for the baby
Imogen finds Josh walking home with a box, which he admits contains more supplements, so he can up his sales. She's suspicious, as he still has loads left from his ‘starter kit' that he hasn't sold – but he tells her it's for the baby, as he promised Amber he'd look after her financially. Imogen tells Josh it's not his responsibility alone, and that he doesn't need to sell this stuff. But he tells her to leave it.
Amy has come in to work on the weekend in order to help Kyle take a delivery. Kyle is yawning, and admits that his late- night calls to Georgia in Germany are taking their toll on him.
KYLE: If there's one thing my wife's good at it's keeping me up all night.
KYLE: Oh, no, no, no, that's not how it sounds. I didn't mean that.
Since the delivery is late, Amy suggests Kyle give the supplier a call, which he does – and is told the delivery's booked for 2.30, not 9.30. Sensing Kyle's tiredness is affecting his ability to do his job, Amy offers to fill in for him today, pointing out that their line of work can be dangerous on a lack of sleep.
Kyle insists he's fine, and sends Amy home until 2.30. She asks if it's okay to bring Jimmy with her then as the childminder was only booked for the morning, and he confirms it is, apologising for his mix- up with the times.
Daniel tells Paul how he's worried sick about the baby and its likely CDH. Paul reminds him that Chris and Lucy's baby was okay, despite their scare, but Daniel points out that this is a very different condition.
PAUL: You need to stay positive.
DANIEL: I can't. I'm scared, Paul. I'm really scared.
PAUL: That's only because you haven't got all the facts yet. The unknown is always scary.
DANIEL: That's exactly what Mum said.
Paul reminds Daniel he's here for him, and Daniel goes off for a skate to clear his head. Sheila comes over to talk to Paul.
PAUL: Oh, whatever it is, I'm not in the mood.
Sheila shows him a receipt for the red hot bingo night – even with the charity money deducted, the bar still made a killing from drinks sales. Paul's mildly impressed, but says he doesn't want a repeat event. He reveals that a complaint was made to the council about Aaron's exotic dance, and that the complainant threatened to make a noise on The Waterhole social media page if they did it again.
PAUL: Your viral rant gave this place enough bad publicity; I do not want any more.
He tells her no more red hot bingo, unless she wants to be out of a job.
SHEILA: Huh! We'll see about that!
Sheila rushes up to Karl, who's riding his bike through the car park, and accuses him or Susan of being the prudish complainant as payback for ruining their bingo night at Off Air. But Karl claims he was with Paul at the time the complaint came through, so says he can't have had anything to do with it. He rides off, wishing Sheila luck in finding the real culprit.
Meanwhile, Josh is trying to sell some ‘top- of- the- line' unapproved peptides to a sceptical customer (Conrad Leveson), and with some heavy persuasion, makes the sale. Kyle overhears the part about the pills providing an ‘energy boost' and, still flagging, asks Josh for some of the same once Conrad has gone.
Whether it's a pang of conscience or fear of being caught out, Josh tries to talk Kyle into going for the cheaper, legit supplements – but Kyle insists he needs something fast- working, so wants the more powerful ones. Josh manages to talk him round, and charges him $40 for the approved pills. He looks worried as Kyle goes on his way.
Sonya, Jimmy and Nell watch with amusement as Amy and Toadie play some kind of dance- mat computer game. Paul arrives, and the others make themselves scarce while he talks to Amy. They discuss Daniel's bad news about the baby, and Paul suggests they all go to lunch together as a family to try and cheer him up.
Amy doesn't seem keen, saying she was going to spend some time with Jimmy before work this afternoon. But Paul begs her to bring Jimmy along to lunch, ‘for Daniel'. She grudgingly agrees.
Imogen has bought Josh a milkshake to apologise for upsetting him this morning. Amber is doing a shift at Harold's, and tells Josh she's got an appointment with the specialist Dr Corey, who Karl recommended. Josh asks about the fees; Amber says it's expensive, and Josh immediately offers to take care of it, saying he's made some big sales today, including to Kyle. He adds that his new product is making bigger returns. Imogen looks suspicious.

Paul is instructing a battalion of Lassiter's waiting staff about the length of breaks between lunch courses. Daniel is already present, and Amy and Jimmy soon arrive. Jimmy takes an immediate interest in Paul's telescope, and starts explaining to Paul about refraction, which impresses him.
In the back yard, Sheila is pestering Toadie about who might have put in a complaint about her red hot bingo event.
SHEILA: Susan is my chief suspect, but I have a couple of other ideas. Like Imogen – she can be a real killjoy.
TOADIE: No, no. She'd have said something.
SHEILA: If not her, then Lou.
TOADIE: He's not even in the state!
SHEILA: Oh, that wouldn't stop him. You know what a low- life, conniving…
Toadie interrupts her, asking whether the complaint was by mail or phone call. Sheila says it was an email, so Toadie advises her to fill out a Freedom of Information application to find out who it was. Sheila wants his help.
TOADIE: Clearly you're unaware of how much I charge.
SHEILA: Well, I thought a few beers and some nuts might just do it.
TOADIE: … I'll get my laptop.
Imogen pulls up in Hermione the car, and asks Kyle if she can buy some fertiliser. She claims it's so she can grow some organic veggies, but Kyle says he's all out of the sort she needs. He advises that she should try Sonya's Nursery.
Imogen keeps Kyle chatting, and it soon becomes clear that she's trying to dig for information about the pills Josh sold him. Kyle says he took two, but that they ‘suck' – they don't seem to have made him any less tired.
KYLE: I knew I should've went for the other ones.
IMOGEN: What other ones?
KYLE: Well, when I saw Josh, he was talking up these other supplements to some guy. Yeah, they sounded awesome.
IMOGEN: So what happened?
KYLE: He talked me out of it, and he said they were only for bodybuilders.
Kyle shows Imogen the pills Josh did give him, then gets back to work, while a worried- looking Imogen leaves.

Daniel, Jimmy and Amy are seated around the lunch table, when Jimmy unveils a fake spider – and rushes over to put it in Paul's place on the table. Paul nearly jumps out of his skin when he sees it.
PAUL: Spiders are one of my fears in life. Right up there with Sheila on a bad day.
Daniel laments that they should have recorded the prank, but Amy explains that Jimmy dropped his iPad in the bath recently, so couldn't have recorded it anyway.
JIMMY: Thanks for telling the whole world, Mum (!)
Paul offers to buy Jimmy a new iPad, but Amy says Jimmy has to wait until Christmas for new presents. Amy has to get back to work, but Paul suggests Jimmy stay with him for the afternoon. Amy seems unsure, and asks Daniel if he'll be here – but Daniel has to head off to work too. Amy agrees for Jimmy to stay with Paul anyway, and tells him to be good.
Sheila confronts Karl again, telling him that the email complaint could have been sent long before he went to see Paul, so he no longer has an alibi. Karl says he has better things to do with his time, but Sheila tells him the email came from an address which references The Right Prescription!
KARL: I've got thousands of fans – could've been any one of them.
SHEILA: Thousands? What world are you living in? Look, I am onto you. And it's time you dropped the act and told me exactly why you did it!
Karl caves and admits it was him, but says he has a good reason – accusing Sheila of objectifying men by allowing such dancing to take place.
KARL: Why didn't you use a female entertainer?
SHEILA: Well, because it…
KARL: Because it would've been offensive, that's why.
SHEILA: Offensive, no! It was just a bit of fun.
KARL: Okay, you answer me this, then. How is humankind going to progress if we continue to treat people like sexual objects?
KARL: I'll answer that question for you – we can't progress. Now when you took on that homophobe you were making a stand against injustice, and that's what I'm trying to do here.
SHEILA: Fine. No more naked man- flesh.
KARL: Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are helping to make this world a better place.
Sheila sighs and walks off. As she goes, Karl grins mischievously.
Amy and Kyle are waiting for the delivery guy again. Amy's looking at her phone for messages from Jimmy, as she's worried about him being left with Paul. But she just tells Kyle he's with ‘another babysitter' – and Kyle tells her she can always bring Jimmy along to work next time.
Kyle goes off to take a call, and Sonya randomly pulls up with some fresh juice for everyone. She expresses surprise when Amy admits she left Jimmy with Paul, and Amy admits she's worried.
AMY: I don't really know Paul that well. And what I do know – it's not good.
SONYA: No, look, Paul's fine. I mean, he's a little bit Doctor Evil at times, but on the whole he's harmless.
AMY: Doctor Evil?
SONYA: Yes, I'm joking. I'm joking. Kind of. Yeah, but really, there's nothing to stress about. I promise.
Sonya offers to drop by the penthouse and pick Jimmy up, to put Amy's mind at ease. Amy says that would be great, so Sonya goes off to do it.

Paul and Jimmy are playing chess. Paul expresses his discomfort at being called Grandad, and asks if they could think of an alternative name.
JIMMY: Like what?
PAUL: Oh, I dunno – something less pipe- and- sippers? A bit cooler?
JIMMY: I'll have to think about it.
Jimmy puts Paul in check.
JIMMY: That's why the queen's my favourite. She can move any way she wants, as far as she wants.
PAUL: She's a tough lady alright – gets the job done, doesn't she?
JIMMY: Like my mum.
PAUL: Did she teach you to play chess, then?
JIMMY: Yeah, but we don't play anymore. I took some of the pieces to school for show- and- tell, and lost them. So now we don't have a full set.
Paul says Jimmy can come and play chess with him whenever he wants. Jimmy puts Paul in checkmate, and they decide to go out, while discussing footie. Jimmy has come up with an alternative to Grandad – G- Dad – and Paul seems to like it.
Sheila marches in uninvited and accosts Karl again.
SHEILA: You slimebag!
KARL: I knew I should've locked that door.
She thrusts a flyer for Off Air in his face.
SHEILA: Ladies' night at Off Air – male topless waiters!
KARL: Yes, it's Daniel's idea. I tried to talk him out of it.
SHEILA: No, no, no. This has got you written all over it. Don't you dare try to drag Daniel into this.
KARL: Sheila, you know my views on objectification.
SHEILA: Oh, sure! Standing against injustice – blah- blah- blah. That was just a load of old A- grade Karl Kennedy rubbish, wasn't it?
KARL: Come on, there's nothing wrong with a little bit of healthy competition.
SHEILA: Oh, is that right?!
KARL: Yes! What are you getting so worked up about?
SHEILA: Because you're playing dirty! And if that's how you want to go about this, well know this – I am the dirtiest player of all!
KARL: What exactly are you saying?
SHEILA: The last time someone challenged me to a battle like this, I stopped at nothing, Kennedy. Nothing. I threw myself from a very high wheelchair onto concrete, and then I recruited thousands of nasty little rodents.
SHEILA: Ask Paige! She'll tell you who came off worst when Harold's tried to poach my business!
KARL: You know, I'm not in the least bit intimidated!
SHEILA: Oh- ho, you will be!
Sheila walks out, leaving Karl looking bewildered.
Josh and Imogen are sitting outside Harold's when Josh gets a work call, and has to go to take it. While he's gone, Imogen can't resist looking in his supplements box which he's left on the table. Beneath the top compartment of legitimate supplements, she finds the other pills in a separate compartment – but before she can examine them closely, Amber comes over and challenges her.
Imogen admits she's worried that something is wrong with Josh's new job, but Amber starts getting annoyed, reminding her that the company checked out when Mark did some digging.
AMBER: We are going through one of the scariest times of our lives right now, and we could really use some support. So if you could just lay off your brother and trust him, that would be great.
Sonya and Jimmy are in the house when Amy gets home, and is none too pleased to find Jimmy amidst a swathe of expensive presents from Paul – including an iPad, a footie shirt and cap, and a bike helmet.
SONYA: Kids need to be spoiled every now and then, don't they?
JIMMY: Yes, we do. Paul's the best grandad ever. I'm so happy we decided to stay here.
Jimmy hugs Amy, and she looks worried.

Amy marches in, with all Paul's presents to Jimmy in bags. Paul starts enthusing about the great time he and Jimmy had, but Amy tells him that he deliberately went against her wishes by buying Jimmy the iPad.
PAUL: Oh, come on, that was an early Christmas present.
AMY: You were undermining me.
PAUL: No, I wasn't.
AMY: I don't wanna hear it! You know, leaving Jimmy with you was a mistake. And it's one that I'm not gonna be making ever again, so you can take those back.
Amy throws the bags down, and walks out.
