Mr Kingham asks Daphne awkwardly what she's doing there. Lorraine is angry and wants to know what Daphne was doing in her and Des's bedroom. Mr Kingham tells them that Daphne worked for the firm.
DAPHNE: Yes. That was before the sexual harassment act.
Lorraine still wants to know what Daphne is doing there, so Daphne tells her that she was the stripper at last night's bucks party. Lorraine storms out, followed by her father.
Mrs Kingham tells Daphne that she knows what her husband is like, and has quite a different opinion about Des than either her husband or her daughter.
MRS.KINGHAM: Des, Lorraine doesn't know how lucky she was.
She kisses Des on the cheek.
Helen and Julie are looking out of the window, spying on the Kinghams leaving. Julie wants to go over to comfort Des(!) but Paul and Jim tell her to leave it.
Des is sitting in the wrecked living room looking gutted. Daphne is just leaving but when she sees how sad Des is she offers to make him a coffee. She sends Des off to have a shower.
Paul comes in and says he didn't recognise Daphne with her clothes on(!) He is looking a bit rough too.
Paul goes into Des's wrecked bedroom and tells him how sorry he is about Lorraine dumping him. Paul says he'll ring round and tell some people - including Des's mother if he wants. But Des says if Paul calls Eileen it'll be the last call her ever makes(!)
Daphne brings in the coffee and Paul gratefully starts to drink it. He starts to ring round while Daphne looks round the wrecked room.
Paul gets through to a bloke called Gary to tell him that the wedding is off. He laughs, so Paul puts the phone down.
Des comes back looking even more depressed - someone turned off the hot water!
Later at Des'
Des is lying on his bed gutted. Paul says that Lorraine wasn't good enough for Des anyway(!) Anyway, Paul has heard that Lorraine only got engaged to Des to spite her old man. Des is concerned at what his mates will say.
Suddenly Des realises that the honeymoon is still booked, so Paul goes off to ring the travel agent.
Maria comes in to see Helen and Jim - they tell her what happened with the wedding. Maria said at one time they were expecting Des to marry Julie. But Helen says Julie and Des were only ever just good friends.
Des has to pay $800 to cancel the honeymoon. He's fed up - he's stuck with this bill as well as the cost of the house and the furniture. Paul suggests that Des goes on the honeymoon on his own - at least he'd have a holiday!
Shane comes up and commiserates with Des about the wedding. Shane is interested to hear that Daphne is in the house.
Shane comes in and tells Daphne she was supposed to come and watch him train this morning, but she says she didn't think he was serious. Daphne continues to vacuum, but agrees to come and watch Shane train sometime. Shane says that he really is an Olympic hope if he trains hard enough.
Scott comes in and wants to know why the wedding was cancelled. They explain, but Jim is more interested in why Scott has been out all night.
Jim takes Scott into the living room and says he can talk to him - there's no trouble Scott could be in that Jim wouldn't help him get out of. Then Jim asks Scott if it's a girl(!) Scott admits he likes a girl from school.
Danny is hoovering (must be an epidemic!) when Julie comes in. Julie has come to get some more jamjars from Maria. Julie starts telling them that she's glad Des's wedding is off. But Danny reads between the lines and realises that Julie was jealous of Lorraine.
When Julie has gone, Danny muses about marriage. He says he knows Maria walked out on Max once. But Maria says she just went on holiday and Max didn't want to go. This is clearly a lie though.
Shane is helping Daphne to put the furniture back. They admire their handiwork.
DAPHNE: I'd love to live in a place like this!
They chat about Lorraine and her father and Daphne tells Shane that Lorraine's father is a nasty piece of work. They talk about stripping and Daphne says she never gets involved with customers. Shane looks downcast.
Later at Des's
Jim and Paul have come to commiserate with Des again. Max comes in and laughs at Des a bit about the wedding.
Jim is trying to work out Des's accounts now that he's only got one income. Max suggests that he gets some lodgers in.
Daphne is just leaving and Des thanks her. Max makes lewd comments and suddenly Daphne realises that Max is Shane's father.
Daphne is a bit cross - she says Max reminds her of her own father. Shane says he wants to see Daphne again, and she says she wants to see him again too!
Helen is sketching a plant when Julie comes in. She says Lorraine has called her to ask what Des is up to and wanting details about the stripper who stayed there overnight(!) Helen explains that Daphne only came back this morning to get her watch.
Julie says that she might go over and see Des. Helen asks her point-blank if she wants Des back. Julie says she doesn't, so Helen tells her in that case, she should keep out of it all.
Danny is listening to his walkman while Shane prepares to go out on a date with Daphne. Shane asks Danny if he's still having nightmares. Shane leaves on his date, but Max isn't too happy about Shane getting involved with a stripper. He tells Maria that Daphne is the wrong type.
When Max has gone, Danny wants to know what girl is the right type! He thinks Daphne is OK - you wouldn't pick her for a stripper. Danny demonstrates to Maria what happens during a strip (bursting out of a cake etc!) but stops when Max comes back.
Shane and Daphne are having dinner. He says he'll bring her some roses from a garden he works on - the owner likes him and spoils him rotten.
Shane tries to get some details from Daphne - all he's got so far is that she likes roses and was brought up in New Zealand - she only came to Australia five years ago. Daphne asks how Des is doing. She says he shouldn't have rushed into marriage - now he's in debt too. Daphne is interested to hear that Des might be getting lodgers in. She says she might ask him about a room. Shane looks a bit doubtful, but then says it's fantastic - she'd only be two doors down from his house.
Jim goes to lock up and go to bed. Helen tells him off for being in a rut - always doing the same thing every night. He should get out and do some stuff. Jim tells her to practise what she preaches!
