- Aaron is annoyed with Nate because he's been fired from the Waterhole after the two of them kissed. He says he'll go somewhere his talent is appreciated.
- Josh shows Aaron some dancing moves
- Jimmy tells Kyle that he blackmailed Sheila
- Amy tells Sheila that they didn't press Jimmy for details
- Jimmy tells Paul that Sheila has the hots for him
Naomi comments that it went well. She has to go and see Terese about a reference. Paul tells her to see Sheila out, but she tells him not to be ridiculous. He looks nervous as he remembers them being locked in the cool- room, and her saying that a new romance mends a broken heart. He dashes out of the room.
Susan arrives home, having taken the afternoon off. She wishes Karl a happy birthday - 21! He wistfully wonders if he was ever 21. She has a quiet celebration in mind.
SUSAN: A nice dinner, a little bit of us time. I'll have you feeling 21 again!
Karl tells her that he saw Brad, who has "feelings". She asks if he means for Lauren. He says he can't say - and that secrets are important in a marriage - but she insists that it's about Brad and Terese.
SUSAN: I know from Terese that Lauren's an issue. I told her she was being paranoid, that she needed to have a bit of faith in Brad.
She asks if Terese has something to worry about. Karl's silence is not comforting.
Tyler asks his brothers and Nate to Karl's party, saying the more the merrier, in a low- key kind of way. Aaron says he has other plans.
Susan is shocked that Karl appears to condone Brad's behaviour. Karl explains that Brad's situation is complicated. She says it's simple: he's married. Karl says Lauren and Brad have history and share a daughter. She points out that so do he and Izzy, and says this is the perfect way to excuse what he did.
SUSAN: You of all people should know that once you've had a "moment" you've already crossed a line.
KARL: I was not saying that…
Tyler, Mark and Nate arrive with pizzas and beer. They notice that they've interrupted something, but Karl tries to cover.
Shirtless Josh tries out his dance moves in front of a mirror. Naomi comes to pick up her reference. She asks Josh what he's doing, and he's embarrassed.
Sheila chases after Paul to ask him about replacing the bingo night with something else. He says he hasn't got time to discuss it, and tells her to asks Terese. She won't take no for an answer, so he agrees.
SHEILA: Now that we've resolved things, I knew that you'd have time for your very favourite bar manager.
Sheila has a few suggestions, like strip poker, pin the tail on the bachelor… Paul tells her to stop.
PAUL: Sheila, there is nothing between us, and there is never likely to be. OK?
SHEILA: Course not, but I don't know why you think that… Jimmy told you.
She leaves the bar, embarrassed.
She comes back and tells Paul that it was a fleeting thing. After the night in the cool room, she thought that if she'd been younger and things had been different, she might have pursued him. She tells him that she things that he and Naomi are good for each other, and she wants Naomi to be happy.
Josh explains how he was hoping to make money from dancing.
NAOMI: I'm sorry, if you just performed what I saw for the ladies, you'd have to pay them.
JOSH: Awesome! So I'm some second rate Chippendale.
Naomi tells him he needs to know how to use his body - she knows he's good with his hips. She agrees to help him.
The boys (including Karl) start playing a ball game. Susan isn't impressed.
Josh is dancing and Naomi tells him he's much better. He hopes Aaron will give him another chance.
Karl suggests to Susan that he could ask the boys to leave. She tells him to carry on playing as he's clearly enjoying himself. He throws a ball, and when he celebrates scoring, he kicks over his present. There is a sound of breaking glass. Susan leaves and Karl opens the present, which is a signed Daddy Cool record. Tyler says cheerfully that he'll be on the couch.
Naomi tells Paul that Terese gave her a glowing reference and Paul says the job is in the bag. Sheila offers them more coffee and politely asks Paul if he'd like some cake. He replies just as politely. Naomi asks them what's wrong as they are being nice to each other. So Paul says her coffee was like dishwater and she tells him to go Harold's. Sheila winks at Paul, and Naomi is happy to see normality restored!
Josh has arranged to meet Aaron, and he gives a demo of his new moves. Aaron says that some of the moves were a bit "girly", but he's impressed by Josh's commitment.
AARON: And your dance has improved by about 1000%.
AARON: It wouldn't be hard, considering where you started.
JOSH: Thanks for rubbing it in.
Anyway, he's in, so now he needs some moves, some clothes - and they need a name. They brainstorm and come up with The Heat.
Karl appears with a white flag. He apologises for letting things get out of control, and for what he said about the situation with Brad, assuring her he didn't tell Brad to consider infidelity. Susan apologises for taking it personally.
SUSAN: Maybe we should stay out of other people's marriage crises. It just seems to bring out bad memories.
Aaron and Josh are practising when Nate, Mark and Tyler arrive with warm beer and cold pizzas. Josh tells them that he and Aaron were just hanging out, while Tyler admits that they misinterpreted what "low- key" meant.
Paul leaves and Sheila comments that Naomi is glowing and she's found the perfect match - and he's not married. Naomi says it's been a long time. Then she asks her mother about dating. She says she was happy with her husband and anyone else would be a disappointment.
SHEILA: Besides, the last thing I need is an albatross of a man hanging around my neck.
Sheila assures Naomi she's happy, but her smile fades after Naomi has left.
Karl is sweeping up the glass. He tells Susan the record is the perfect gift. She says she'd forgotten how full on it was having two boys under the same roof.
SUSAN: Maybe I'm just too old for all this testosterone.
KARL: You and me both.
Karl says that Tyler will probably move out soon, and Nate's not that bad. Susan offers him his "other present". There's a knock at the door. It's more testosterone, specifically Ben…

- Ben tells Karl and Susan they don't know anything
- Lauren tells Brad they can't keep pretending
