Summary/Images by: Sayaka/Karen (Katie)
- Scott and Danny think they're both going to be convicted.
- Helen tells Jim straight that he'd better stop wallowing in self-pity or he'll wake up and find his children are strangers.
Scott and Paul's bedroom
Paul offers Father Barry his help. Father Barry says that it's a huge commitment - and he's got a tough job in mind for Paul. It's Mrs Brown - she's well on her way to becoming a full-scale alcoholic. Father Barry needs help to keep the family together. Paul isn't sure - she's laying charges against Scott. But eventually he agrees.
Just then Scott comes in. When Father Barry has gone, Scott says he was listening outside - he thought Paul was on his side. Paul says he is, but that Mrs Brown needs help.
When Paul has gone, Danny climbs in through the window. He tells Scott that the lawyer told Max that Danny should plead guilty. He doesn't want to though. But he says that Scott is probably going to be off the hook. Scott isn't sure though - if their own fathers won't believe them, why should the magistrate?
Jim tells Helen that she's right - he's been wallowing lately. Helen says that she did go overboard a bit. Jim says that'll it will take him quite a long time to get over Anna, but he won't make the family suffer any more.
Danny's bedroom
Danny climbs back in through his window and finds Max waiting for him. He yells at Danny. He says he's been next-door but Max doesn't believe him. Maria tries to calm Max down. Danny yells that he and Scott are on their own - neither Max or Jim are supporting them. Max is so angry he goes to hit Danny but Maria and Shane stop him.
DANNY: I hope they lock me up and throw away the key! Because anything would be better than this dump!
Jim asks Lucy about her fancy-dress party. Lucy says she's not going. Jim says she can understand that - fancy dress parties always scared him. But once he was there it was fine. Lucy says that Jim didn't go school with Janette Riley the creep. She says that Janette has been picking on her, saying Lucy is going to look stupid. Jim says that if Lucy goes and looks great, that'll be one on the nose for Janette Riley.
Just then Father Barry calls round. Jim asks him about finding a costume for Lucy that no-one will laugh at. Helen has some ideas but Lucy says she's out of date! Lucy asks what Jim went as. He says he went as a tramp!
Father Barry and Paul head off.
Jim tells Lucy that she can't let the Janette Rileys of this world run things. Lucy quite likes the idea of a tramp.
Scott and Paul's room
Jim tells Scott that he's been giving Scott a hard time over the business with Mrs Brown - he apologises for talking to Scott like he's guilty. But he'll support him from now on. Scott asks Jim to talk to Max on Danny's behalf.
Number 30
Father Barry has brought Paul round to see Mrs Brown. She isn't pleased to see Paul but eventually relents. The house is a bit of a mess and she says he husband is asleep. Father Barry wants her husband to be part of the discussion. Mrs Brown starts to cry and says her husband didn't come home last night. She cries that she wants him back. Father Barry says that Mrs Brown has to make the first step - her drinking is the main reason for their separation. Father Barry explains that Mrs Brown is an alcoholic and they can't help her until she asks for it.
Mrs Brown asks why Paul is even there when she is charging Scott. Paul says that he's willing to help and he only lives down the road. Mrs Brown insists that she isn't an alcoholic.
FATHER BARRY: Until you can accept it, we can't help you.
He and Paul leave. Paul tells her he's just a phonecall away.
When they've gone, she takes a bottle out of the cupboard and starts to empty it into the sink. But then she pours some into a glass and drinks it.
Lucy is dressed up as a tramp and agrees to go to the fancy dress party. Jim admires her costume.
In the kitchen, Paul and Father Barry are having a cup of juice. Paul says that he always thought drunks were dirty old men in gutters - not housewives and teenagers. He says that in this case Father Barry should get someone else, because he doesn't like Mrs Brown. Father Barry says it doesn't matter - this work is about being bigger than your own petty likes and dislikes. He tells Paul to think about it.
Ramsay Street
Jim and Max are having a stroll. Max says that Danny's word isn't good enough for him. He tells Jim that Danny has been sneaking out at night to meet Scott.
Garden Fence between the Robinsons and the Ramsays
Scott and Danny are chatting about their situation. Danny is not optimistic that Jim will talk Max round.
Maria says that Danny should not be talking to Scott. Danny is upset that Max doesn't believe his story. He says that if Danny could be put away without Max looking bad, he'd do it.
Mrs Brown rings Paul up. She's crying and says she needs to talk to someone.
Danny's bedroom
Danny looks at his diving trophy. He drops it into the bin. Then he gets a bag from his cupboard and starts packing it.
Lucy is back from that party and has won second prize!
Jim is talking to Scott in the kitchen. He is telling him off for meeting Danny secretly. He says that he doesn't believe Scott's non-involvement any more.
Number 30
Mrs Brown tells Paul that her husband has been to the house and he took the children away with him. She was out cold in the bedroom at the time. She's asking Paul for help with her alcoholism, so she can get them all back. Paul says it won't be easy and it won't happen overnight, but he can arrange for her to see someone.
Mrs Brown asks Paul to take her to the police station first. She tells him that she had a phonecall today. She didn't lose her purse when she was robbed - she lost it in a bar that afternoon. She just didn't remember. If she was wrong about the purse, she might have been wrong about Danny Ramsay. She wants to tell the police that. Paul thanks her.
Lucy's room
Lucy is worried that Jim and Scott are yelling at each other again. Helen tells her not to worry and get some sleep. Lucy hugs Helen and bids her goodnight.
Scott's room
Danny comes in through the window - he's come to get the $2 Scott owes him because he's running away. Scott says Danny was right about parents - Jim isn't supporting him any more.
SCOTT: Will you wait for me in the park? I'm coming with you.
