- Danny is taken to hospital with a drug overdose.
- Scott feels responsible for Danny being in hospital.
- Max and Jim trap the drug dealer.
- Danny and Scott agree to talk more in future.
- Maria gets a call - they wants $500 for damages to the party hall.
Shane says that he thinks that a bit steep - and anyway, they're broke. She tells Shane not to tell Max - it's up to Maria to sort it out. She'll have to ask them how much time they have to pay.
When Maria has gone, Shane tells Danny about the $500. He is shocked. Shane tells him not to worry. Danny is more worried about what Max will say, but Shane says they won't tell him.
Max is on the phone to Scott asking what he can get Danny for his birthday. Scott suggests some tapes and Max writes the titles down.
Danny is sitting inthe kitchen, depressed. He berates himself for causing trouble. Shane says that they might make a movie about Danny one day - "The Curse of Danny Ramsay Strikes Again!"
Shane says it's best that he keeps his spirits up for Maria - everyone makes mistakes and they've survived worse than this before.
Party Hall Office
Maria thinks that $500 is a reasonable estimate considering the damage. Maria asks if she can pay in installments. But the committee is clear - if she can't pay within one week, they'll have to take legal action.
Max comes in and is very pleasant to Danny. He gives him his present, wrapped in a plastic bag. Danny is very pleased and says that the tapes are terrific. He thanks Max.
Des comes round looking for Shane. He asks Max to come and have a look at his plumbing. Max readily agrees and Des is quite surprised(!)
When Des has gone, Danny reminds Max that Daphne, the stripper, will be over at Des's. Max says that he's not really such a heavy as Danny reckons, and anyway, he can't afford to turn work down.
Daphne is shocked to hear that Max Ramsay is coming around. The parrot is squawking in the background.
Just then, Daphne's grandfather, Harry, arrives with a different woman that the one he left with(!) Des and Daphne are speechless. She explains that she's a topless waitress at a bar in town(!)
Harry stings Des to pay for his girlfriend's taxi again!
As she is leaving, Max arrives. Daphne tells her grandfather not to overdo things or he might have a heart-attack(!)
Des tells Daphne to get rid of her grandfather - it's too expensive to keep him. But he relents and says he can stay on.
Danny and Scott are having a sandwich and talking about the $500. Danny tells Scott about Max being nice to him.
Terri comes in looking for Max. Danny gives her the message that she's to load up the van.
TERRI: What sort of mood is he in, I'm a bit late?
DANNY: Great! I don't know what's up with him!
Max has finished fixing Des's pipes. Daphne tells her grandfather that he's not to get money from Des any more. He starts waxing lyrical about how generous Des and Daphne are then makes a sharp exit with his parrot. Daphne rolls her eyes.
Outside the Ramsays
Terri is loading up the van and Shane comes over for a chat. Max comes up and asks Terri if she can manage on her own today - he wants to stick around the house for a bit.
SHANE: Some work mate you've got there Dad!
MAX: Yeah, not bad, for a woman.
Danny is pacing again, worried about the $500. Max comes in and Danny asks if he can have a talk to Max. He asks him to lend him $500. He explains about the party damages. Max nearly gets mad but holds himself back. He says Danny should have told him earlier.
Shane comes in and tells Danny he should have kept his big mouth shut. Max storms off.
Des wants to know if Daphne has spoken to Harry. She says it was a bit difficult. Des doesn't believe any of Harry's tripe - he says it's a helpless old man act. Daphne sits Des down. She tells him that one day soon he'll be old himself, and he should have a bit of compassion. Des tells Daphne that she's too soft and easy to manipulative.
DAPHNE: When I met you first, Des, I thought, here is a man you can trust. Solid, dependable human being,someone who cares about others. And I really admired that in you.
DAPHNE: Nuh. But you're a really nice guy.
She says that her grandfather is a bit of a problem, but asks Des not to let it get him down. He smiles.
Maria has come to visit Max. He tells her he's been to see Danny and he knows about the $500 damage. Maria says she didn't want to tell Max in case he took it out on Danny. Max and Danny have got on so well last night.
Max rants and says Danny draws trouble like a magnet and they never had this trouble with Shane. Maria puts her hand on Max's arm and thanks him for being so kind to Danny last night.
Danny is telling Scott that Max hasn't changed at all. Scott says that Danny should have told Max about the hall straight off.
Outside the Ramsays
Shane is putting some suitcases in the back of a van. He says it's time to get on with his life.
Max and Maria are coming up the stairs. She asks him to be reasonable and talk normally to Danny. Max says he's willing to listen to how Danny is going to come up with $500!
There doesn't seem to be anyone in the house. Max sees that Shane's cups have gone and says they've been robbed. He's about to call the police when Shane comes in and says he's sold his cups. He gives Maria the $500 to pay for the hall.
Max is very angry and shouts at Shane. Shane shouts back that they were his cups to sell, not Max's. Maria cries and says Shane didn't need to do it. Shane says he didn't only do it for the money. He wants to put that part of his life behind him - it's over, it's finished. He wants to get on with the rest of his life now.
Max says that he doesn't understand Shane any more and walks out the back way. Shane says Max will just have to live with it.
Garden of the Ramsays
Danny sees Max in the garden. He tells Danny off for Shane selling his trophies but Danny doesn't know what he's talking about.
Max sees the diving pictures in the bin in the back garden. There's one of him and Shane together. He looks at it sadly.
