Sharon asks Bronwyn what her plan to get Henry back is. Bronwyn asks Sharon for her advice. Sharon says to cook him a meal, but Bronwyn says last time she did that it went horribly wrong. But she does have an idea - she says Henry likes something even better than food - girls and romance. She says she'll put on a sexy outfit and come on strong!
Penny comes to say goodbye to Des because she'll be leaving shortly. Des says he's sorry she's burnt her bridges by resigning. He asks her if she'd consider having dinner at his place so he can talk to her properly - he can't talk to her at the bank. Penny is a bit reluctant, but finally agrees.
Paul and Gail come in to talk to Des about the loan and Penny leaves. Paul is very stressed out about the loan. Des says he's not sure he can help - the application has already been before the loan board. Paul says maybe they could resubmit the application with only an 80% mortgage on the house. It won't be enough money, but it will bring them to within a whisker of what they need. Des says that the fact that he's re-applying could go against him in itself, but he's willing to give it a go.
Joe is helping Toby put a toy aeroplane together and chatting amicably. Toby asks Joe if Katie can come over later and Joe agrees.
Nolene comes to the door and Joe shows her into the living room. Nolene says she wants Toby home because school starts next week. Joe says Toby is perfectly content at Erinsborough, but Nolene wants TOby home with her. They start to argue and Toby overhears from the kitchen. Joe says that Toby is not going back. Nolene says she'll go to court to get custody if she has to. Joe tells her to try it - possession is nine-tenths of the law. Toby cries quietly in the kitchen.
Bronwyn is wearing the sexy dress (unfortunately ruined with an enormous brown belt!!) and approaches Henry who is putting some tools into the back of the car. He notices the dress, but doesn't say anything. Bronwyn tells him that she knows he didn't write the letter but Henry is still cross at being falsely accused. Bronwyn says she'll make it up to him and she'll do anything. Henry tells her to give him a hand getting a couple of bags of manure into the back of the car(!) Bronwyn wants to talk, but Henry says he's a busy man and drives off!
The Coffee Shop
Nolene comes in crying and tells Mrs Chubb that Joe is keeping Toby from her. She asks Mrs Chubb if she's still going to be able to help her. But Mrs Chubb tells her about the cannabis plant - now her word won't carry much weight with the police.
Nolene thinks a bit and has an idea. She says possession might be nine-tenths of the law, but two can play at that game.
Des has cooked a meal for Penny and has lit a candle while they eat. Des tells her that he's really sorry about her quitting her job, but Penny thinks it's for the best. She also tells him that she's split up with Gordon. Now she's going to take life as it comes - now she's free to do anything she wants. Des says that Daphne was the one with all the plans for them and things get a bit awkward between them.
Toby and Katie are washing up and Toby tells her that he might be going back to his mum's. When Katie goes home, Joe sits Toby down for a bit of a chat. Joe says Toby should tell them what he really wants and gently asks him if he wants to stay with his dad or go back with his mum. Toby says he doesn't mind being with his mum as long as he could come back to see Joe sometimes. But he definitely doesn't want to live with his mum's boyfriend Ted. Finally he says that he's like to stay in Erinsborough.
Bronwyn, still in the sexy dress (with horrible brown belt), approaches the front door with a picnic basket. Henry sees her approach through the window and grins. He plays his guitar loudly as Bronwyn knocks. Finally he stops and answers the door to her with a very serious look on his face. Bronwyn says she knows Madge and Harold are out, so she's brought him some food - all his favourites things. Bronwyn starts to say that maybe they could share but Henry interrupts and says she's a bit late - he's just called for pizza. He shuts the door in her face and carries on playing the guitar. Bronwyn calls through the door that she'll leave the food in case he's hungry later.
When Bronwyn has departed, Henry opens the door with a mischievous look on his face and retrieves the picnic basket. He bites into a chicken leg and laughs.
Des tells Penny that they've got something good together and it seems a shame to let that go. He was hoping for another chance at their relationship. Penny says she'd like that very much, but thinks he's still too close to Daphne's memory. Des insists he wants to start fresh. Penny asks him to put a photo of Daphne away because it makes her feel like an intruder. Des goes to put it away but can't do it. Penny tells him not to torture himself - she knew it would end like this. She says goodbye.
Des's, the following morning
Bronwyn and Sharon are messing about and Des is in a bad mood going off to work. Bronwyn says maybe she should give up with Henry, since "sexy" and "food" didn't work. But then she has another idea - she'll give Henry a laugh. She says it's the way to his heart!
Back garden of the Mangels
Joe is just popping out to the shops leaving Katie and Toby to play. Mrs Chubb calls over to Toby and Katie and offers them a swim in her pool. They happily go to put their costumes on.
Paul is anxious about the loan and very stressed out. Des informs him that Penny resigned over his loan but Paul couldn't care less. Des says he'll ring him about the loan.
Henry is on the phone to a customer when there's a knock at the door.
Bronwyn leaps in, dressed as a kangaroo and leaps around the living room. Henry appreciates this and says he'll forgive her - he can't stay on bad terms with Kanga-man. They kiss and agree not to fight anymore.
Back garden of No.30
Mrs Chubb has called Nolene. But she is having second thoughts - what Nolene is doing is tantamount to kidnapping. Nolene gets Toby out of the pool and leads him off, still dressed in his swimming costume.
