- Aaron and Nate get off on the wrong foot by critiquing one another's careers
- Sheila warns Karl that in a battle for business, she is the dirtiest player of all
- Relations between Paul and Amy thaw after he helps Jimmy with his science project
- Imogen tells Amber that she and Daniel are so good together because they're able to talk
- But Daniel and Amber sadly decide to call time on their relationship nonetheless
Amber is telling Imogen that her relationship with Daniel is over, as it wasn't working anymore; things hadn't really been right between them since Daniel found out that Amber slept with Josh. Imogen is worried that Amber might be having feelings for Josh now she knows he's the dad, but Amber denies this, saying it's all about her and Daniel.
AMBER: We were so caught up in the idea of being in love, instead of actually being in love.
IMOGEN: I can't believe this. You guys said you were soulmates; I thought you could get through anything.
AMBER: Yeah, I know. It just got too hard. It's like we were trying to put a band- aid on something that needed to be amputated.
IMOGEN: So that's it? You're just gonna give up?
AMBER: Yeah. We have to.
Daniel stares sombrely into the water.
Outside the main entrance, Kyle and Amy are planting flowers as part of the beautification project. Amy gets started, while Kyle goes to make a call. Paul turns up, talking to Terese on his mobile about the new Lassiter's logo, which has still not been finalised by the sounds of it. While he's talking, Paul bumps into Amy, then quickly cuts short his conversation with Terese.
Paul explains to Amy that he's at the hospital for meetings, and asks what she's doing here. She explains, and things are still a little awkward between them. Paul asks how Jimmy went with his science project; she says he got an A, and that his bridge was chosen for display.
AMY: But he was convinced he couldn't have done it without your help; so the least I can do is shout you a coffee. You know, to say thank you.
She tells Paul to text her when he's ready for a break, and he says he will.
Sheila is about to leave Nate on his own as she goes off for a dentist's appointment.
SHEILA: I'm sorry to leave you in the lurch, love; but my dentist is very popular with ladies of a certain age. So I just needed to grab this appointment before the others swooped in.
Nate promises to handle things in the meantime. Sheila tells him that, as it's bingo night, she needs him to get Aaron to sign a permanent contract for his exotic dancing routine.
NATE: Oh, you can't be serious?
SHEILA: Why not? He was fabulous entertainment, and he's very easy on the eye!
NATE: Yeah, but don't you think it's lowering the tone?
SHEILA: It's called Red Hot Bingo. We need razzle- dazzle! Besides, I think Karl might want to poach him. So you get his name on that contract ASAP. Wish me luck with Dr Dreamboat! I don't mean Karl.
Sheila bustles off for her dentist's appointment.
Meanwhile, Josh and Amber are discussing visa arrangements for their trip to the States they hope to arrange for the baby's operation. Amber seems slightly peeved to learn that Josh has already called the doctors to ask them for Amber's medical records for the lawyers, but she insists she's just tired – and agrees that the sooner they sort all this out, the better.
Kyle and Amy are planting daisies. Kyle explains they're Georgia's favourite flower, and he wanted to give her something to smile about when she next walks into work. He admits he's missing her while she's in Munich, but just has to put up with it for now.
While they're talking, Amy takes off her outer shirt, and Gav, another workman with a team of contractors, starts wolf- whistling in her direction. Kyle remarks that he's a joker, and Amy puts the shirt back on.
Daniel is lying on the grass with his eyes closed. Imogen approaches, and without opening his eyes he knows it's her; he says he had a hunch she'd be looking for him once she found out about the break- up. He asks after Amber; Imogen says she's okay, but worried about Daniel.
DANIEL: I'm okay. To be honest, it didn't come as a shock.
DANIEL: We were trying to salvage what we had. But deep down, I knew it wasn't working for a while. I'm fine. You should get off to the gym, or wherever you were heading.
IMOGEN: I didn't really wanna go anyway.
She lies down next to him on the grass, and holds his hand.
Nate tersely approaches Aaron with the contract Sheila wanted him to sign.
NATE: Sheila wants you to sign this.
AARON: Well, nice to see you too (!) How's your day?
NATE: Just autograph it there, and I'll be out of your hair, okay?
Nate explains that it's an exclusivity contract for the bingo nights.
NATE: For some reason, Sheila wants you to do your little routine.
AARON: Hey, there's nothing little about my show.
NATE: Oh, I'm sorry (!) Your big, pointless, demeaning male revue. Is that more accurate?
AARON: What is your problem?! Are you jealous of me?
NATE: Why would I be jealous of someone who takes their clothes off for a living?
AARON: Mate, there's way more to it than that, you know.
NATE: Oh, that's right (!) Wriggling around with five- dollar notes sticking out of your pants must take some level of skill.
AARON: You are something else, you know that?
He begins to walk away; Nate says he's joking, but Aaron points out that it's not the first time he's insulted him.
AARON: You can tell Sheila to find someone else. I've got better things to do than to put up with people like you.
Daniel and Imogen are still lying on the grass. He says his relationship hadn't felt the same since he found out about Amber's night with Josh – something inside him felt broken, and he couldn't push past it. Then with the baby, and the disagreement over treatments, it all became too much.
DANIEL: I guess Rain was right.
DANIEL: Before she left, she said that Amber and I wouldn't last. That we were holding onto something that wasn't real. But I didn't want to believe her. I was convinced that Amber was The One™.
Imogen asks him if he's sure this isn't just a blip; but he says it won't ever work, and is definitely over.
IMOGEN: Does it feel weird saying that?
DANIEL: Yeah, kind of. But it's also kind of a relief.
IMOGEN: So, what now?
DANIEL: I have absolutely no idea.
He says he should collect his stuff from the Turners', and asks if Imogen would mind coming with him, as he doesn't want to face them on his own. Imogen says of course; she'll do anything he needs.
Gav's wolf- whistling has now progressed to sexist remarks, as he calls for Amy to take her shirt off again. As Amy presents Paul with his coffee, he overhears and is appalled, shouting at the guy not to talk to his daughter like that. But Amy tells Paul not to start anything, saying she's heard a lot worse.
PAUL: And it doesn't bother you?!
AMY: Yeah, it used to.
PAUL: So why put up with it?
AMY: Because it's called money and a job. Come on – no- one will hire me if I get cranky every time someone whistles in my direction.
PAUL: So this happens to you a lot, does it?
AMY: Yeah! More times than you've counted your money.
The conversation turns awkward, and Amy says she has to get back to work. Paul was under the impression that they would be taking a break together, but Amy says she said she'd buy him a coffee, not that they'd drink it together. She heads back to work, leaving Paul looking angrily at Gav the workman.
Daniel is sitting on the boot of his car outside No 32, absently flicking strings on his mini- guitar. Imogen brings out the ‘eco- pillow' which she bought him, telling him not to forget it. He remarks that his whole life fits in the back of the car, but Imogen points out that he's never been one for material possessions. He thanks her for her help moving out.
Daniel says he's going to call Karl and ask him to look after Off Air for a couple of days. Imogen's sure Karl will enjoy the power- trip.
IMOGEN: I know things are really hard right now. But it's gonna be okay. You're the only person on the planet that can make a positive out of any situation. This break- up won't be any different.
DANIEL: I'm sure you're right.
Sheila comes back from the dentist, but can't speak – she mimes to Nate that she has lockjaw! She writes on the bingo team board he's set up to ask him whether he got Aaron to sign the contract. Nate explains that the negotiations didn't go down so well, as he offended Aaron – and now he might be performing at Off Air tonight. Sheila writes ‘FIX IT' on the whiteboard and flings the pen at Nate!
Meanwhile, Josh and Amber are talking about whether Josh's suspended sentence will affect their chances of going to the States. He's hoping they'll give them special consideration, and says he has to submit various documents to the visa lawyers so they can pursue it.
Imogen shows up; and while Amber's in the bathroom, she accuses Josh of ‘swooping in already'. However, it soon becomes apparent that Amber hasn't even told Josh about the break- up with Daniel, and Imogen breaks the news.
Shortly afterwards, Imogen has gone and Amber comes back from the bathroom. He asks why she didn't say anything about the break- up; she says she just didn't want to go through it all again or make things harder between them. When Josh says it makes things easier for him and Amber, she gets annoyed.
AMBER: Josh, I don't want to get back with you!
AMBER: Sorry, that came out really harsh.
JOSH: No, it's fine.
AMBER: I just want to be single. I'm happy to co- parent, but that's it. Are you sure you're okay with that?
JOSH: Yeah, course I am.
He smiles at her.
Nate calls round to see Aaron, begging him to change his mind about signing the contract, as Sheila's annoyed that Nate stuffed things up. But Aaron says saying ‘please' isn't enough to get him to sign, after the way Nate insulted him – then pointedly tells him he'd better start getting ready for his big ladies' night gig at Off Air!
NATE: Alright, okay. You're a really, really good dancer. Everyone thinks so.
AARON: Really? Thank you. How about my body?
NATE: It's… good.
AARON: Just good?
NATE: It's hot. It's a very… hot body.
AARON: Would you say that I am the best- looking Brennan brother?
NATE: Yep, sure. Now, can you please sign this?
AARON: Would you say that being a performer is a worthy, legitimate career choice?
NATE: Yep, okay. Entertaining people is a very worthy job. Not as much as being a soldier (!), but not everyone can do it, and you do it really well. So please, can you fill that out?
AARON: See, that wasn't so torturous, was it?
He agrees to sign on one condition – that from hereon, he deals only with Sheila. Nate agrees, and Aaron signs.
Paul approaches Kyle while Amy's off getting afternoon tea, and complains to him about Gav whistling at Amy earlier. Kyle admits he did it earlier too, but that Amy didn't seem to mind. But Paul says that Kyle should do something about it as her employer, and orders him to go and sort it!
KYLE: Oh, talk about double- standards!
PAUL: Excuse me?
KYLE: You didn't seem to have a problem with a bit of harassment when you and Nick made a bet about my wife!
Paul apologises for the bet about Georgia, admitting it was wrong – but says it's also wrong to stand by and let Gav make Amy feel uncomfortable. Kyle promises to sort it out.
Sheila is serving Josh at the bar, but can't speak to tell him the price – so eventually just gives him the drinks on the house! Nate and Aaron come in with the signed contract, which cheers her up immensely. Nate explains to Aaron about Sheila's lockjaw.
AARON: So if you can't talk, who's gonna host bingo?
Sheila points at Nate.
NATE: Whoa, no no no no!
SHEILA: Mm- mm- mm- mm- mm- mm!
NATE: No, Sheila, no way!
But Sheila makes it clear through hand gestures that Nate and Aaron are to pair up for the bingo, and that there is to be no more discussion!
Meanwhile, Josh and Amber are still going over paperwork, when Amber thinks she feels the baby kicking. She grabs Josh's hand and puts it to her belly. Josh says he can feel it too.
JOSH: That's amazing!
Daniel has brought his car round to the Complex, and walks purposefully towards The Well™. Opening the hatch – which unbelievably, still isn't locked – he flashes back to the wedding day, and him and Imogen heading down the well to find Agnes Robinson's pearl ring; and later, him putting it on Amber's finger.
Back in the present, Daniel pulls the very same ring from his pocket and throws back down the shaft into the darkness.
Outside the hospital, Kyle works purposely towards the sexist workman, Gav, and hands him a six- pack of beers – then gently asks him if he wouldn't mind toning down his behaviour towards Amy. Gav is surprisingly receptive, saying he only meant it as a compliment and that he'll stop if it means having a few beers. They shake on it.
However, Paul has seen the whole exchange, and is outraged that Kyle has bought Gav off. Afterwards he confronts Kyle, reminding him that he works for the council and therefore, effectively for Paul. He announces he's making a ‘captain's call' and tells Kyle he's fired!

- Tyler asks Mark to confirm that if he goes along with the sting, he won't go to jail
- Amy and Kyle are now both unemployed following Paul's decision to fire Kyle
- Amy tells Paul that his plan has backfired on all of them
