- Des's mother arrives for a surprise visit. She likes Daphne very much.
- Max offers to coach Danny again but Danny is fed up of Max yelling at him and doesn't want to.
- Julie tells Eileen that Daphne is a stripper. Eileen sits down in shock.
Eileen is sorting through her many pills(!) for something to calm her nerves. Des is trying not to laugh. Eileen goes on at Des for leaving Perth, but Des says he wanted his own life.
Eileen has called Des home from the bank to tell him that she's heard something horrifying. She says that "that female" who is sharing the house is a...
DES: Oh, Daphne you mean? She's a stripper.
Des says that's it's Daphne's livelihood, but she's a decent, respectable girl.
DES: Besides, she's very good at it.
EILEEN: You've seen her doing it?!
Des says he's twenty-eight years old and seeing a woman's body is not an entirely new experience to him! Eileen says it's a good thing she's there - to put a stop to Des's moral decadence(!)
Danny is having a snack which seems bigger than a main meal(!) Maria wants Danny to have another go with Max and the training. Danny says he can't handle it. But Maria says that Max has changed his expectations now. Danny is quite adamant that he won't train though.
Scott comes round and he and Danny go out.
Outside the Ramsays
Scott tells Danny that he's got some news - it's a letter from Kim. She wants to meet SCott and it sounds pretty urgent.
Mrs Brown comes over for a word with Eileen who is doing the garden. Eileen asks Carol what she knows about the "female" who is living with Des. Carold says she doesn't know what Des and Daphne's personal arrangements are, but that Daphne takes her clothes off in public for men. Carol says she wouldn't be under the same roof as "that woman". Carol says that everyone locally is up in arms about Daphne, saying that it brings the street into disrepute. Carol says that they are taking steps though. Eileen says she's very pleased that she's talked with Carol.
EILEEN: I can see I'm going to have to do something about this myself.
Shane and Danny are hanging out. Danny is upset about the training situation - he's still adamant he doesn't want to do it again. Shane says he's had an idea. Unlike most brothers, he and Danny get along. He says that they should go into business together.
DANNY: Business? What sort of business?
SHANE: Shut the door and I'll tell you what I mean.
Ramsays - kitchen
Maria is asking Max to be gentle with Danny and not to push him. Shane and Danny are just going out. Max demands to know where they're going, but on Maria's look he changes his question to asking what time they'll be back. They say around ten.
MAX: Bet it's closer to eleven!
Eileen sneaks up on Des and starts measuring him with her measuring tape. She wants to make a jumper.
Daphne comes in and Eileen promptly retires to her room.
Des tells Daphne that now she knows why Des left Perth. Daphne berates Des for not putting his mother in her place.
DAPHNE: You have no idea what I've put up with today. Sly innuendos, a constant stream of rude remarks. I don't care if she is your mother, Des, I'm not putting up with much more.
Scott tells Helen and Jim that he's going out for a bit and he'll be back at about nine. He finds a note under the door - and shows it to Helen. The note isn't very nice.
HELEN: Who would say such horrible things about Daphne?
JIM: Someone with a dirty mind.
The note calls Daphne a slut and other names. Helen looks worried.
A bonfire is burning outside when Scott approaches an old house. It's very dingy and there are rough types hanging around.
Des is watching football when there's a knock at the door. It's Julie. She tells Des that Eileen has invited her around. Eileen greets her happily while Des scowls in the background. Eileen fusses over Julie. Des pointedly sits in the chair, rather than on the sofa with Julie as Eileen requests.
Eileen is clearly trying to match Julie and Des up. Des gets up in exasperation and goes for a walk.
Scott is waiting for Kim to come. But she doesn't so he gets up and walks away.
Daphne is walking home with Paul. They are laughing and joking. When they get back home, Daphne sees that graffiti has been daubed on the garage. Daphne is very upset and says that she's not a prostitute, just a stripper.
It's already ten o'clock and Scott is late home - Jim is not pleased. He rings Maria to see if Danny knows where he is.
Max tells Jim on the phone that Danny and Shane have gone out and he hasn't seen Scott.
Jim and Max are suspicious about what the boys are up to. They think they're up to no good.
Jim is ringing around Scott's friends. But just then Scott comes in. Jim wants to know where he's been. He shows Jim the letter from Kim. Jim is shocked at the place Scott has been to - it's full of prostitutes and junkies.
Scott tells them that Kim didn't show - the place is awful and he's really scared for Kim.
Danny and Shane come in to find the house in darkness. Max and Maria come out and demand an explanation. Shane says that he and Danny have just been for a walk. They head off to bed. Max is not pleased.
Robinsons, the following morning
Julie is telling the Robinsons about Eileen. Helen shows Paul the note they got about Daphne. Paul is appalled and tells them that Des's garage was graffitied too.
Des is exasperated with Eileen cooking too much food and going on about Julie. He warns her not to matchmake - he's definitely not interested in Julie.
EILEEN: She's interested in you.
DES: Well, that's her problem!
Des says that Julie is wasting her time holding a torch for him.
Eileen tells Des that she's had her house in Perth leased so she can stay with Des.
EILEEN: You're going to have your mother around for a long, long time. What do you think of that?!
