Paige is swimming when Lou arrives. He reminds her that she's got a shift at Harold's, but she can't be bothered with that - she's going to a party.
PAIGE: I can't let my uni mates down.
LOU: But you can let your mum down.
Imogen tells her mum that it was her fault Tyler's kilt fell, and Tyler says he doesn't do stunts.
TYLER: I was being Irish.
TYLER: Yeah, that.
Terese promises to talk to Tom on behalf of Tyler, who accidentally loses his kilt - again. She gets annoyed and tells him the ban still stands.

Xanthe is murdering the euphonium. (Did you know that euphonium means "well- sounding"? Well, it doesn't when she plays it.) Piper arrives, and the two agree that they need money. Sheila arrives with Toadie, and Xanthe asks her for a raise.
SHEILA: Of course. Let's go and pick some notes off the money tree.
Sheila tells the girls to do something productive. Xanthe reminds her they are broke.
Imogen is defending Tyler to Daniel, who asks why she's getting worked up about it. She says that Tyler is her friend. He tells her she's over- invested and she retorts that he's always at work.
IMOGEN: Today was supposed to be our day.
She isn't impressed when he tells her that Terese had offered him time off, but that he had refused.

Toadie and Sheila are talking about the Citizen of the Year. She asks him to nominate her.
SHEILA: I am the queen of gay rights in Erinsborough after all.
He agrees to nominate her, if she will nominate him. Obviously the CotY has to live in Ramsay Street.
Xanthe has found a video of Tyler flashing the Waterhole. Piper says it would have been a non- event. Lou arrives, looking for someone to do a shift at Harold's. Xanthe isn't that keen, and asks Piper for her opinion.
PIPER: I think if we're getting paid, it's a no- brainer.
Aaron gets the answering machine. He leaves a message, telling Nate he hated hearing third- hand that he was back in Aus.
AARON: I don't know if we're still together or... if I should wait. I want to wait, but I can't do it for ever.
Xanthe and Piper are working. Lou tells Lauren that it makes sense to take on another casual, since he's leaving and Paige is at uni. She agrees, but says they don't need two people. Sheila overhears, and tells Xanthe to smile. Xanthe promptly drops two plates, which Piper rushes to clear up.

Tyler is playing with a remote control boat and some plastic ducks! He's pretty laid back about his ban, saying he can go to Off Air. She says she's not giving up. He asks what's up with her, then asks when the last time they ... you know... TTEOLARCW™. She says it's been ages.
TYLER: The physical stuff, it's important.
IMOGEN: Yeah, I never realised how much.
Tyler advises her to talk to Daniel, but she says she can't.
Harold's - outside
Kyle asks Aaron if he's contacted Nate, saying he knows how Aaron feels, since it happened with him and Georgia.
KYLE: Time went by it was harder to get in touch with her. Then I found out she'd met someone else.
KYLE: But every situation is different.
Aaron says that it's obvious they are over, or Nate would have called. Kyle says it's good timing that Tom has a crush on him.
Paige saunters up, saying she's putting in an appearance for the rest of her shift. Lou says they've filled it. She says it didn't need to be filled. Well technically it did, Paige, because you weren't there. Lou tells her she can't study, work and play. She snaps at him, saying she's doing her best and she thought it was enough.
Lou tells Lauren that Paige had a go at him. Lauren asks him what he did, because clearly it couldn't be Paige's fault. She tells him that Paige is very sensitive, and she and Brad will look after her while he's away.
Piper asks Xanthe if she's OK with them both going for the job, and they agree that whoever misses out won't be annoyed. Sonya calls Xanthe over, and tells her there's a hair in her food. Xanthe's tried this one before...
XANTHE: Aren't you like the mayor now? You shouldn't be trying to scam food from people.
Piper tells Sonya they'll get her a new meal, and tells Xanthe that the mayor is not going to pull a fast one. Lauren reminds Xanthe that she told her to tie her hair back in the kitchen.
Imogen drags Tyler to the table where Daniel and Terese are sitting. She claims that there has been an act of racism, because they have discrimated against a national dress code. Tyler apologises to Terese and promises not to go commando again. She says he can come back.
TERESE: But no more skirts.
TYLER: It's a kilt.
Imogen wants to continue her legal argument, but Tyler takes her out as Daniel frowns.
Sheila asks Lauren how Xanthe is doing, and Lauren says she's offering the job to Piper. Sheila tells her Xanthe is struggling and offers to subsidise her and pay for all the breakages. Lauren sighs.
(later) Lauren offers the job to Xanthe. She and Piper are both surprised, but conclude that it must have been because of Xanthe's personality.

Lou is on the phone when Paige arrives. She says she doesn't know why she snapped, which I guess is the nearest you get to an apology. Lou says he doesn't want to leave on bad terms, and she says they're good and they hug. She tells him she's not doing very well. She's trying to be a new person, but she doesn't know what she's doing.
PAIGE: I got so used to leaning on Mark. And it's just... it's hard not having him by my side.
Lou says he's proud of her for taking on change. He tells her that no- one expects her to be strong, and she has to let her feelings out or they'll break her.
Xanthe is excited about her new job. Sheila hopes she won't spend all her wages on clothes, but Xanthe reckons that's the whole point of a job. She goes to get more salt. As Kyle comments she's accident prone, there's a sound of smashing plates from the kitchen.
Tyler tells Imogen to talk to Daniel, who has just finished work. He asks her why things are weird, and she tells him he's put his job ahead of her again.
IMOGEN: I just feel like we're really disconnected.
He suggests they go back to hers and watch Anne of Green Gables... which is not really what she had in mind.
Piper comments to her mum that Xanthe probably wanted the job more than she did. Terese asks if she's OK, adding that Brodie is coming to town. Apparently neither Josh nor Brad are going to be happy.
Imogen opens the door to Tyler, who dressed in his kilt. They kiss passionately.
Imogen wakes up, and finds that she's on the sofa with Daniel.
- Brad says something is unexpected, and he's tempted
- Paul tells Daniel it's karma
- Imogen tells Paige she had a dream about Tyler
- Tyler and Imogen in the garage
