- Lucy stumbles across Terry's tape and plays it.
- Julie hugs Jim goodbye.
- Phil tells Julie that he's very lucky to have found her.
- Helen tells Jim that she might not be around very much from now on.
Eileen storms in, furious after her talk with Helen. She proceeds to take it out on the whole family.
DANNY: Mrs Daniels must have ticked her off.
MAX: Oh, great! About time someone did that, interfering old goat!
Max, Danny and Shane sit down for breakfast. Danny tells them that he has some news - he's applied for a job at the bank. Max and Shane think it's terrific, and Max isn't upset about Danny leaving school, as long as it's what he wants.
Douglas and Helen are saying goodnight with a kiss. When he's gone, Jim admits that running the house on his own was harder than he imagined, but he thinks it'll be fine. Helen has reservations about adjusting to married life again.
JIM: All that matters is your happiness.
HELEN: Yes, I know. And all I want is to spend the rest of my life with Douglas.
Danny comes in to see if he's got the job, but Des says it's not finalised yet. He tells Danny to come back at lunch time. Sarah thinks Danny is too cocky.
Garden of the Ramsays
Shane is doing a spot of gardening when Danny comes out to throw his school books in the bin(!)
Harry is regaling Shane with kung fu stories. Then he starts teaching Daphne the basics of self-defence. She learns it a little too well and ends up slapping Harry for real!
Danny comes in and takes his coat off. Des is forced to tell him that someone else has got the job - Alex Baxter. Danny is gutted and demands an explanation. Apparently Alex got equal top marks with Danny and the manager went with him - Alex had better school reports.
Daphne has got Harry in a headlock(!) Shane observes that Daphne seems very keen to learn self-defence. He asks her if she wants to go out tonight and Harry immediately invites himself along.
Danny is retrieving his school book from the bin. He tells Shane what happened.
Eileen is taking *ages* to make Max's lunch. Danny comes in to tell Max what's happened about the job at the bank. Max is sympathetic and tells Danny that he gave it a real good go. Eileen sticks her beak in and reckons that Danny isn't responsible for such a job anyway and Max immediately sets on her.
MAX: Now listen! I'm sick of you sticking your beak in where it's not wanted, just butt out!
EILEEN: I beg your pardon?
MAX: You heard. Now either you keep your nose out of this family's personal affairs or you can get out of the house altogether.
EILEEN: Right. I will. I resign. As of this moment, I resign.
Helen is looking forward to moving into the cottage. They're off to the bank to open a joint account.
Sarah is showing Alex Baxter the basics of the job. He seems very keen.
At the counter, Eileen is telling George that she's resigned from the Ramsays.
Danny and Shane are struggling to wash up. Danny offers to help Max this afternoon.
Sarah is fed up of Alex Baxter telling her that procedures could be done a different way.
At a counter, Helen and Douglas tell Des that they're engaged. He is delighted. Des is surprised that they want to open a joint account, but Helen explains about the cottage.
Danny is reluctant about going to the bank with Max. He's upset that he didn't get the job, but Max encourages him not to give up.
Sarah and Alex are arguing hammer and tongs. Alex starts saying that he didn't *have* to take this job, he had other options. He ends up resigning. Just then, Danny comes in.
DES: Well...welcome to Pacific Bank, Danny. It's great to have you aboard, mate!
Danny is chuffed and shakes his hand.
Daphne, Shane and Harry are just heading out for their night out when Eileen arrives looking for Des.
Harry is talking to the manager of the Coffee Shop about his time in Las Vegas. The end up deciding to have a game of poker. He gets Shane and Daphne to look after the shop while they play.
Des comes in and Eileen promptly sets upon him. She starts ranting that she's been forced to resign from the job at the Ramsays. Des calmly heads off to the movies and leaves Eileen there.
The Coffee Shop manager (Wally) and Harry are playing poker while Shane looks on wearing a pinny(!) Daphne moans at him that she's run off her feet, but Harry just deals another hand.
It's late now, and Harry is losing quite big. He reckons he's OK though - he's got $50,000 stashed away from his winnings in Vegas. Finally Harry says he'll put up his $50,000 against a half-share in the Coffee Shop. Daphne and Shane are horrified and tell Wally not to do it.
HARRY: Time's up, Wal. One hand for the big stakes. Are you in, or are you out?
WALLY: Cut for deal.
