- Jim and Anna declare their love for each other.
- Danny and Shane are pleased that Anna is staying.
- Lucy tells Helen that Anna stole her ring!
Robinsons, the following morning
Helen tells Jim that she found her ring in with Lucy's secret treasures. Jim demands an apology from Julie. Julie says she never actually said that Anna had stolen the ring, but Jim tells her not to split hairs! Jim tells her off for mixing Lucy up.
Paul suggests a professional counsellor for Lucy, saying she has a psychological problem. Jim says that's rubbish - they can cope as a family.
The Ramsays and Anna are having breakfast. Anna is rather subdued about the dinner the night before. Danny tell Max that he'll meet him at the pool at lunchtime. Maria tells Max off for being so short with Danny.
Helen tells Paul that Jim is a bit upset at the moment. Julie is off to work, but Helen says she wants a word with Julie first.
Helen tells Julie that she's making everyone thoroughly miserable.
JULIE: I just want what's best for him.
HELEN: How dare you presume what's best for him?!
Helen tells Julie that Jim wants to marry Anna, so she'd better get used to Anna.
Anna tells Jim that their families are difficult - including Max. Max has done a lot for her family - he even taught her father to speak English. Anna says that Max has a very good heart, despite his gruff exterior. Apparently when Anna and Maria's father was killed, Max worked two job so he could give them both an education and a home. Anna's husband Gino has been a similar man - that's why she's with him.
Jim tells Anna he loves her. And he wants to marry her. (Seems a bit quick to me!)
Max is bossing Danny about at the pool. He tells Shane that Danny isn't listening to him. Max turns his back and Shane talks to Danny instead. Max turns back just as Danny does a very good dive. Max grudgingly admits that Danny's dive was alright.
Max tells Danny to meet him back at the pool after school.
Daphne and Father Barry are having a chat. She tells him that she and Shane have cooled off. Paul comes in to ask Father Barry about Kim. He's seen her and she's surviving - just - but she still hasn't contacted Scott. Daphne is just off out on a date.
Paul asks Father Barry how he met Daphne. He says Paul had better ask Daphne!
Paul tells Father Barry about the trouble at home with Julie and Lucy. He says it's all Julie's fault - for some reason she's dead against the romance and will destroy it if she can.
Daphne comes to Julie's counter. She tells her she wants to open an account. Julie says Daphne can talk to someone else(!) Des gives Daphne a form to fill in. Then he tells Julie off for bigotry - her job is to give service with a smile, or find another job.
Anna says she loves Jim, but she's worried about the family. Helen tell Anna to marry Jim - being fond of Gino is not enough. Helen says there's things she'd like to do too, and would be happy to have Anna take over the reigns. Max apparently thinks that Anna should do the right thing by Gino though. Helen says Anna's happiness is more important that Max's opinion.
Max is called out on a job and tells Maria he might not be back to meet Danny at the pool. Max says it was hard not seeing Shane up there. Maria thinks it's a good way for Max and Danny to get closer.
Anna comes in at that moment and Max glowers a bit. She goes off out for a walk. When she's gone, Max says that Anna should think through what she's doing with Jim. He doesn't think she's cope with the Robinson household. Maria tells Max that Anna doesn't love Gino.
MARIA: You want her to marry him out of gratitude?
MAX: Maybe you could tell her what that's like.
Max has not turned up and Danny is concerned. Just then, Maria arrives to give them the message that Max has had to go to work. Shane says he'll train Danny today.
Danny climbs up to the top diving board (yikes, vertigo!). Maria thinks Danny is only diving for Max, but Shane says Danny is doing it for himself.
Des and Daphne are having some port before bed. They've had a nice night out. Des tries to get her to stay up, but she's tired and heads off to bed, blowing him a kiss.
Later at Des's
Daphne can't sleep and Des comes out to see how she is. They drink milk together. Daphne asks Des why he took her out to dinner. Des says she's good company, and she's a nice girl, and he likes her. Des flirts with Daphne a bit. Daphne says she likes Des very much, but a landlord-tenant thing wouldn't work. She tells him to lock his bedroom door, though, in case she changes her mind(!)
Max has waited up for Jim and Anna. He tells them straight that he thinks they're making a mistake. He thinks Anna should go back to Queensland ASAP. He says four kids is too much for Anna to take on, especially when two of them hate her guts. Also, they hardly know each other - and Anna has led a sheltered life. Jim gets angry and tells Max to mind his own business. Max says that Anna is like a daughter to him, and she should go back to her uncomplicated life.
Maria comes out to find out what's going on.
JIM: Just butt out of our lives, Max. Whether you or any of my family like it or not, Anna and I are going to be married!
