- Aaron suggests Josh use another mobile so that Amber can text ‘Phoebe.'
- Terese tells Paul about Josh giving her a lecture about how bad she is treating Brad.
- Amber sees Brad and Lauren flirting with each other.
- Terese arrives drunk at the dress rehearsal for the concert, knocking over some music stands.

Josh gets a text from Amber. ‘Glucose test tomorrow. Hope I don't faint!' He texts back as Phoebe, saying ‘Good luck! You'll be fine.' He hears Terese and Brad arguing as they walk into the back garden. Terese is begging Brad to have a proper conversation. Brad says that wasn't the time or the place, and he accuses her of being drunk and embarrassing him in front of his students. As they continue, the music gets louder and their voices fade out, while Josh looks miserable listening to the argument. They continue to shout at each other, until Brad leaves to take the bin out. Terese angrily throws her umbrella on the ground and heads inside, where she realises Josh was listening to them. She then carries on inside without saying a word.
Number 22 (Next Morning)
After an aerial shot of the street, we're back in Number 22 as Terese folds up the sheets from the sofa. Josh asks if she slept here last night and wonders where Brad is. She says he's gone for a run. Josh wonders how she's feeling, he won't lecture her but he's here to listen. Terese says she feels terrible, she went to the concert to support Brad and have a proper conversation, but she misjudged the situation and made a mess of things. Josh says she can fix this if she said all this to Brad, but Terese says it isn't an easy conversation to have and she has a busy day ahead. Josh gets a text from Amber, who wrote: ‘Fasting since midnight, so hungry!!!' Josh reads the text, asking his mum if she has no time for difficult conversations.
Brad is out on his morning jog and after a short montage has ended up by Lassiters Lake. Lauren is taking out the rubbish and spots Brad, hiding behind a corner to watch him while he stretches. She smiles longingly at him before he continues jogging.
Kyle and Mark are preparing to visit Toadie in hospital. Kyle says Toadie will be relieved to not be stuck between his wife and his mum as they go ten rounds. They meet Sheila.
KYLE: Hey, where are you off to?
SHEILA: Well it just so happens that I'm going to a Museum of Contemporary Art today.
KYLE: Since when do you like contemporary art?
SHEILA (to Mark): I'm going with your father.
MARK: Since when does he like contemporary art?
SHEILA: The point is we enjoy each other's company and I thought it would be a nice way to spend the day, is that alright with you two?
They grumble as they get into the car. Paige passes and asks Mark to say hi to Toadie for her. As Kyle and Mark drive off, Paige walks past the Willis bin and sees a log sculpture (which looks pretty horrible to me, but then again I'm not a fan of contemporary art either.) As Brad returns from his jog, Paige asks him if it's his. Brad says it is just junk and heads inside. Paige looks at the log and then takes it with her.
Toadie tells Mark and Kyle that they should have seen Sonya's face when Angie turned up, it looked like she just wanted to scream. Toadie knows they're behaving around him but at home it will be a different story, Kyle says Amy will keep them in line.
TOADIE: Has mum crossed paths with Sheila yet?
MARK: I haven't heard any reports of major disturbances across the radio. Maybe because she's too preoccupied flirting with my dad.
Toadie imagines if they got married, Sheila would be Mark's step mum and Kyle would be Mark's step- nephew. Mark asks Kyle to call him ‘Uncle Mark.' Kyle asks Mark if it is a good idea for their parents to see each other, and wonders if Russell is in it for real. Mark doesn't know, they don't really talk about that stuff. Toadie says they're grown- ups and they should just let things play out but Kyle doesn't want to see Sheila get hurt. Kyle asks Mark to have a chat to Russell to check he's on the level.
Terese scrolls through her phone, tempted to call Brad but decides not to. Mark enters and sits down with Russell at another table. He asks how things are going with Sheila, Russell tells him he's taking her to a Contemporary Art gallery but notes that it isn't his sort of thing. Mark tells his dad that Sheila is his friend's gran, and a friend of his, and he wonders if Russell sees it as a long term thing. Russell hadn't thought about it. Mark says Sheila really likes Russell and she's quite soft hearted, so if Russell doesn't think it will last he should end it before it goes too deep. Mark leaves as Sheila arrives to ask Russell if he's ready, excitedly planning their date. Russell apologises to Sheila, something unexpected has come up and he has to cancel.
Angie is in the kitchen, listening in while Amy and Kyle are talking about some designs he has made for the ramp they're installing in the house. Angie chips in and asks if Kyle has heard from Georgia. Kyle hasn't heard from her for a few days, she's probably busy with her mum. Kyle and Amy go back to talking about work, paying each other compliments, when Angie rushes in with a dustbuster and starts vacuuming the sofa, forcing them to stand up and get out of the way. Angie thinks the place could do with a really good clean, insinuating that Amy hasn't been cleaning the place well enough. As Angie vacuums under the cushion, she finds a letter (it'll be one of the ‘secrets' that Jimmy dropped down the sofa.) Angie puts the letter with the mail on the counter and continues cleaning.
Amber leaves a message on ‘Phoebe's' phone. She's at the hospital, waiting for the results of this test and she is bored out of her brain. She's wondering if ‘she' wants to come and visit.
Josh listens to the message. Meanwhile, Brad arrives at the counter, where Lauren shows Brad the sculpture that he thought was junk. Paige says she took it from the rubbish. Lauren tells him how great a piece of art it is and wants to display it in the store. She's surprised to learn that Brad is the one who made it. Lauren tells Brad to take some pride in his work, and she's heard from Karl about the amazing thing he did with Ben in getting him to take part in the concert. Lauren tells Brad he's good at telling his students to put themselves out there, but he should follow his own advice. Brad smiles, while Josh watches gloomily from the other side of the room.
Angie visits Toadie, while he is on the phone to Callum. Toadie hangs up, and Angie tells Toadie how things are going at home. Toadie is surprised to hear that Toadie and Amy are building a ramp for #30, saying this wheelchair thing is only short term. Angie notes that Amy and Kyle seem to be enjoying working together.
TOADIE: Alright, what's that tone of voice for?
ANGIE: What tone of voice?
TOADIE: That tone that says ‘I've got some juicy gossip that I highly disapprove of but I can't wait to share it!'
ANGIE: Have you seen the way they look at each other? Laughing, smiling, fluttering their eyelashes?
TOADIE: Alright, first of all Kyle's eyelashes are about a metre long anyway, he can't help but flutter them.
ANGIE: Look there's something going on between those two and I'm rarely wrong about those sorts of things.
Toadie says she is this time, and so is Sonya, explaining that Sonya jumped to the same conclusion. Maybe she and Sonya aren't too different. Angie calls that rubbish, they're chalk and cheese. Toadie assures Angie that nothing is going on between Kyle and Amy. Angie says she's going to call his Auntie Rhonda to see how she's doing, and while she's at it, she might just prod Georgia to ring her husband. Toadie tells Angie not to interfere.
Kyle and Amy drink to celebrate a job well done, bathroom rails are in and the ramp is almost done, it should be finished by tomorrow. Angie comes in, bellowing for Kyle. She tells him there's brilliant news, Rhonda's in remission! Kyle hugs Angie excitedly. Angie says this means Georgia is coming home, they're flying back next week! Kyle hugs Angie again, and Amy says she's happy for him and can't wait to meet Georgia. Kyle wonders why Georgia didn't call to tell him. Angie says she was rushed off her feet, but she's standing by the phone to hear from him right now. Kyle thanks Amy for the day and rushes off to call Georgia. Angie asks Amy if she saw the way that Kyle lit up like that. Angie rushes off to tell Toadie. Amy thinks about the news and the smile on her face slowly fades.
Terese is working, while Sheila walks past. Sheila asks Terese if she's ever shared something wonderful with someone and then it feels like it's falling apart. Terese says she guesses so. Sheila thanks her then walks off sadly. Josh arrives and asks Terese if she's had a chance to smooth things over with Brad, he's probably at lunch right now. Terese says she'll see him later, but Josh encourages her to go now. He wishes her luck as she heads off.
Number 22 Back Yard
Brad meets Terese, having gotten her text. He tells her he's got to get back to his class (did he just leave them unattended to go home and see his wife?) Terese has been thinking about last night and realises now that she owes Brad a huge apology. She meant well but she handled it badly and she's sorry. Brad appreciates it, and asks what she wanted to say to him last night. She is sorry she hasn't been as supportive as she should have been lately and they're just failing to connect somehow. She thinks it is her fault but he admits they could both be trying harder. She wants to go back to the way things were, and wonders what happened to the loving couple they used to be, she wants them back. She asks him to forgive her. He gives her a hug. Terese tells Brad she loves him, but Brad doesn't say it back to her.
Number 26 Back Yard
Russell visits Sheila who is doing some weeding. Russell apologises about earlier, he was confused. He hadn't thought about where their relationship was heading and then he panicked temporarily. Since he split with his wife, romance hasn't been on his agenda, so he apologises for being a bit rusty. Sheila says she doesn't know what she's doing either. Russell can't offer her big romantic promises for the future, but he wants to give it a try and see where they end up. Sheila thinks that is really good, and they kiss.
A nurse shows Josh to the room that Amber is waiting in. Josh goes in and tells Amber he thought he'd keep her company. Amber says she's feeling a little lonely, and feels a bit woozy after they took her blood. Josh offers to get Amber a tea and leaves the room. Amber takes out her phone and writes a text to ‘Phoebe' which reads ‘Guess who came to visit me in hosp?' She sends the text, just as Josh's phone goes off. Amber notices the coincidence and keeps texting: ‘Josh! So nice of him' but when she sends this one, Josh's phone goes off again. Amber goes over to Josh's chair and takes his phone out of his jacket, and sees the texts she just sent ‘Phoebe.' Amber looks shocked.
