- Jim comes to the bank to have a word with Phil. Phil tells him that he's not sleeping with Julie.
- Scott agrees to take Wendy out. She kisses him.
- Paul takes Terry out. Shane comes in with another girl and Terry is upset.
Terry wants to leave, so Paul calls for the bill. She debates walking over there right now, but Paul says that there may be an explanation. They leave.
As they're leaving, a man comes in and approaches Shane. He gives him the minutes from this morning's meeting and thanks him for looking after his friend. Shane leaves and the man sits down with the woman.
Terry is ranting and Paul is trying to calm her down, saying Shane may have an explanation.
Just then, Shane comes in and Terry asks him straight out who the woman was. Paul explains that they saw him at the restaurant with a girl. Shane says he wasn't going out with her, but Terry says he's a liar. Shane is very upset and storms off, saying he's glad he found out what Terry was like before she got her hooks in.
Terry tells Paul that she never wants to see Shane again! Paul looks quite pleased(!)
They sit down on the sofa and Paul asks Terry out to dinner again. She agrees.
Shane comes in and finds the place in a total mess. Just then Max comes back. Shane puts the kettle on for them while Max eats some fish and chips. He tells Max about his "blue" with Terry.
Shane tells Max that the bedsit is a mess. He sees some drink bottles in the bin and looks worried. Max asks after Maria. Shane asks Max if he'll come home - he still loves Maria and the divorce stuff is ridiculous. Max says they all just have to get used to the idea. Shane heads off back to work. He looks back on his father eating his fish and chips in a hovel of a place rather sadly.
Robinsons, the following morning
Julie is running late for the back. She's still in a mood with Jim for going to see Phil. Jim insists that Phil has a wife and two children - it's not a good idea.
Paul comes in in an excellent mood and tells Helen and Jim that he's taking Terry out again tonight. They are a bit confused because they thought Shane was going out with Terry. Paul explains about the other girl.
Daphne is grilling Des for the details of the Shane/Terry tiff. Des thinks it's off. He suspects Daphne of still having a soft spot for Shane. Terry comes out and says Daphne is welcome to Shane - she's going out with Paul Robinson tonight.
Maria is doing the washing while Shane and Danny eat their breakfast. Daphne comes over and Shane barely looks up. She invites him over for Beef Stroganoff tonight. He accepts her invitation and Daphne looks very pleased.
Wendy comes out and Danny makes her a coffee. Danny tells Maria that he's taking Wendy out tomorrow.
In the living room, Danny brings Wendy her coffee. He asks her if they can go out for pizza tomorrow instead of to the restaurant. Wendy admits that she's done something awful - she's agreed to go out with Scott, but it was only because he was looking miserable. She claims that Scott said that he and Danny often swap girlfriends(!) Danny isn't impressed but lets her off the hook.
Garden of the Ramsays
Helen and Maria are talking about Shane and Terry's breakup. Maria explains that the girl Shane was with was the niece of one of his bosses. Maria is shocked to hear that Terry is going out with Paul now. Helen says that Paul is not the sort to steal his friend's girlfriend, but Maria isn't convinced. They agree that Paul and Shane are old enough to make their own mistakes though.
Jim is ranting about Julie and Phil again. Helen says that Julie has the right to make her own mistakes. Jim doesn't know what to do, but Helen advises him to just sit this one out.
Paul is dressed up for his date in what are apparently trendy clothes(!) He asks Jim if he can borrow the car and Jim gives him the keys.
Des is dressed up - he's going on a date, but he won't tell Daphne who she is.
Paul comes in to pick up Terry. He's surprised to see that the table is set.
Des is looking for a newspaper but Daphne has tidied it up. She starts looking for it, but thinks that she's thrown it out. He says that any newspaper will do. Daphne is suspicious, but Des isn't giving anything away!
Shane comes in and makes himself at home. Des tells Daphne to clear away the dead bodies before he gets home(!)
In the living room, Shane and Paul are chatting awkwardly. Paul says he's taking Terry out to the movies. Shane says that was quick work(!) but he doesn't care - he doesn't want a woman that flies off the handle and doesn't give him a chance to explain himself.
Terry comes out and Daphne drags Shane off to help her prepare dinner. Terry looks a bit shaken at Shane's presence, but she and Paul head off.
When they've gone, Shane looks a bit distant. He explains to Daphne that Maria wants a divorce, and Max's living arrangements are shocking. Daphne suggests that they forget about it for the evening and enjoy themselves. Shane says that Daphne is a very good mate. Daphne isn't very impressed at being called a "mate"(!)
DAPHNE: I'm never going to get my way with you, am I.
SHANE: I wouldn't say that!
Des is sitting at the bar and accidentally sets fire to his newspaper. He extinguishes it and cringes in embarrassment. He's clearly waiting for a blind date. A nice blonde woman comes in, but walks passed him. Des sits back down with his singed newspaper(!) A very fat woman comes in and Des hides behind his newspaper. To his relief, she walks past.
Daphne and Shane are saying goodnight. She asks if she's going to get a good night kiss, so Shane kisses her. Des is just coming home and coughs to announce his arrival. He walks past and into the house! Shane kisses Daphne again, and says they'll have to get together again soon. Daphne looks chuffed.
Daphne comes in and Des asks her for the details. Daphne asks how Des's date went. He says that she was very nice.
DES: Why are you so interested in me when Prince Charming has just swept you off your feet...again!
Des says that the newspaper has a jinx on it(!)
Shane comes in to find that Maria is still up, unable to sleep. Shane says that Maria should sort things out with Max. Maria says she tried, but Max always blames her. She knows she made a mistake, but Max had an affair first. Shane says no-one cares how he and Danny feel. Maria says it's too late - she has to go on with the divorce. Shane says that Maria is tearing Max apart. Maria says that if Shane continues in this vein he'll have to choose - her or his father.
