Karl tells Jemima that her offer is very generous, but the rest of their lives could be a long time. She assures them that there are no strings and they should be enjoying life at their age. She wants to buy two properties at Paul's development - one for herself and one for Karl and Susan. She asks them to think about it.
JEMIMA: I want the future to be extraordinary for ALL of us!
Gary and Xanthe are talking about Amy. Xanthe doesn't understand why Gary is interested in Amy now. He explains that when he first knew her, she was Kyle's boyfriend and a room- mate at No.26.
XANTHE: Now you're close friends, it's suddenly different?
GARY: We've been hanging out a lot lately and we always have a rippin' time...I finally see how perfect she is. 'Course, I never realised till Doctor Rob came on the scene...I even encouraged her to go out with him.
XANTHE: Maybe you should just...keep some distance.
GARY: No. She'd take it personally.
XANTHE: Well, you could just...come clean about how you feel.
GARY: If I come clean about my feelings, it will ruin our friendship and it's better if I just stay quiet. I'll...get over it soon enough.
He does not look convinced.
Sonya is trying to get Nell ready for their flight to the USA to see Jade and Callum.
Piper comes round to get a file which Toadie has left there. Piper also needs some tea for the office supplies. Sonya has gone into the bedroom to pack by now so she shouts through to Piper to take the box in the kitchen. She picks up the box of "Full Salute" tea and heads off.
Susan and Karl are discussing Jemima's offer. She is worried that Jemima will end up "owning them" but Karl says her offer does has merits and he doesn't think they should just dismiss it out of hand. His perspective has changed a little after his DVT. Life truly is short. Susan looks thoughtful.
KARL: With this offer of Jemima's we could truly live the life we want. I do think it's a once in a lifetime offer.
Toadie and Piper are working and drinking tea. Suddenly Toadie realises that the tea has caused a reaction(!) Piper asks him for a file, but he can't get up (ew)
PIPER: Are you alright?
TOADIE: Something's just come up(!)
He gets on the phone to Sonya and tells her what's happened with the tea.
SONYA: Did it work?
TOADIE: Big time(!)
SONYA: Well, you should come home, then!
TOADIE: I can't walk past Piper looking like this, I'll be up for workplace harassment!
SONYA: OK...maybe I'll give the kids to Dipi and Shane and I'll come and help you, alright?
TOADIE: OK, alright. And hurry, please! Oh, God, it's getting worse!
Business is going well at The Retreat and Amy congratulates Gary. She hugs him. Xanthe comes over and tells Gary that the Uni fees are due...she'll need the money by Friday as the Uni want the money up front. Gary thinks this seems rather unlikely considering Xanthe hasn't even got the grades yet, and so does everyone watching, but OK.
When Xanthe has gone, Gary tells Amy that he can't disappoint Xanthe. She suggests that Gary rings Steph and asks her to fast- track his promotion.
Jemima is off to have another look at the Robinson Height site with Paul. Just then, Jemima's daughter rings and they have a terse conversation about her monthly allowance. Susan thinks it's a shame that they only see Jemima's money.
Sheila is testing Xanthe on her schoolwork when Gary comes in. He's off to see the bank manager because Steph has just given him a permanent work contract and a pay rise. He assures Xanthe that everything will be fine.
Toadie is giving Piper dictation when Sonya rushes in with a large plant. She gives them to Toadie to hold so he can get out of the office, but Piper says that they need to finish their work. Toadie sits back down in despair.
Jemima tells Paul that she's already decided to buy one of his houses, and possibly the one next door for Karl and Susan. She suggests that she and Paul have a drink together. He invites her back to the Penthouse.
Gary is talking to the Bank Manager who has apparently approved his loan. However, it will take two weeks to come through. The shortest time is five days to clear.
Susan and Bea are talking about Jemima and her family. Bea says that she heard Jemima's grandson Jasper talking the other day, and she didn't think he was after cash.
Toadie and Piper are just finishing up their dictation when Sonya comes back. She has called Cassius and organised a lunch for them to thank them both for helping them out. Piper protests that she has lots of work to do, but Toadie just tells her to go.
When Piper and Cassius have gone, Sonya and Toadie get down to business(!)
Gary is desperately trying to think where he can get the money from for Xanthe. He suggests taking it from The Retreat until the loan comes through, but Amy thinks that's a terrible idea.
Jemima and Paul are taking about Jemima's family. Paul advises her not to give up on her family. Jemima thinks Karl and Susan are a second chance at family.
Toadie and Sonya are heading off to the airport in a taxi. They asks Susan and Karl to keep an eye on Piper and Cassius while they're away, just so they don't liquidate their businesses(!)
When Karl and Susan have gone, Toadie asks Sonya if she's packed the Full Salute tea(!)
They drive off, and Susan tells Karl that they're lucky to have good relationships with their kids. She tells Karl that Jasper is actually only four years old (Bea told her). Susan thinks Jemima is using her money as a barrier. She thinks she and Karl should say no to Jemima's offer.
Piper and Cassius are talking after lunch and Piper is getting a bit randy (having also drunk the Full Salute tea). Cassius tells her about the effect of Full Salute and Piper is horrified - she drank three cups!
CASSIUS: You don't have to worry, because I know you're not ready to go there.
PIPER: Yeah, I know, but still, that doesn't mean I can't fool around a bit...
CASSIUS: That sounds good to me.
They head off.
Gary rings Xanthe and tells her that he's got the bank loan. She's very excited. So excited, in fact, that Gary can't tell her the truth. He says that the money will be in his account by the end of the day.
He ends the call, then opens the cupboard with the "hot" $100,000 in it. He takes the money out and looks conflicted.
