Jim guides Madeleine to the sofa and sits her down. Just then Helen, Todd and Katie come in and Jim quickly sends Todd and Katie to bed. Madeleine explains to Jim, Helen and Scott that she went to the milk bar, and Conrad must have followed her. She claims that Conrad started to rough her up. Jim says he'll call the police, and Madeleine reluctantly agrees. Helen suggests that Madeleine comes back and stays the night with them after seeing the police.
Paul and Gail's House
Bronwyn and Henry are hanging out. Bronwyn tells Henry that she's decided to go back to school. Henry doesn't seem too excited at this though.
Harold is on the phone to Madge because it's his birthday. He says he hasn't had any cards yet, but he thinks Scott and Kerry might be planning a surprise.
Scott comes in and starts getting himself some cereal. Kerry comes out in her dressing gown. Harold looks at them both expectantly. Kerry says she's got something for him, and gives him a Save the Whales poster for the Coffee Shop. Harold is disappointed. He stalks off to work.
Katie is waiting for the newspaper to come because they are printing the photos for the funniest photo competition today. She and Todd go off to school.
Madeleine comes out in her dressing gown and says that she's feeling better. Apparently Conrad had a cast-iron alibi for last night, so the police can't do anything. Madeleine says that maybe Conrad hired someone to rough her up. Jim looks confused and says that Madeleine told him that it was Conrad in person. Madeleine says it could have been anyone since she was terrified at the time. Jim and Helen look privately worried.
The Coffee Shop
Hilary has come in to fill in for Mrs Chubb while she's away. She immediately starts taking over the running of the Coffee Shop(!) Harold is reading the Erinsborough News and pouting about his birthday. Hilary takes the paper off him and sees a photo in the paper of herself and Mrs Chubb doing aerobics. Harold looks over her shoulder and laughs. Hilary looks most put out. She then gets upset and says she'll be the laughing stock of Erinsborough. She tells Harold that he'll have to run the Coffee Shop by himself.
Madeleine asks Helen is Jim will be home for lunch and says she'll be back in time to make him some sandwiches.
Hilary comes in and shows them the funny photo. Helen and Scott laugh but Hilary is angry - she wants Katie to be punished. Helen said that the children meant no harm but Hilary is unmoved. Helen tells Hilary that she'll speak to Katie, but she has to leave now because she's going out. Hilary says that's not good enough!
The Coffee Shop
Henry is telling Harold about Bronwyn's plan to go back to school - he says he's happy with Bronwyn the way she is. A bloke comes in to order a vegetable pie, but there's none left because of Hilary walking out. Henry laughs and says he's seen the photo of her in the paper. Harold hints to Henry about his birthday but Henry doesn't know what he's talking about.
Jim is just saying that he's not too keen on shop-bought sandwiches when Madeleine brings out some shop-bought sandwiches(!) She also gives him a very expensive antique watch as a token of her gratitute. Jim says he can't accept such an expensive gift and gives it back to her. Madeleine says that her father had a similar one that was taken off him when he went into prison. Madeleine says she admires Jim as much as she did her father. But Jim is resolute.
Harold is telling Kerry that he's had a rotten day. Kerry suggests he take Sky for a nice long walk, and not to come back for half an hour so he can wind down. Harold suddenly looks suspicious and smiles thinking Kerry has organised a surprise party.
Jim is telling Helen about the watch. Helen thinks she's playing on the situation with Conrad and Jim agrees. Scott tells Jim that he thinks Madeleine has got her eye on him. Jim says he'd been hoping it was his imagination. Helen suddenly does the maths about towels slipping, night visits and expensive presents. Jim looks even more worried!
Hilary barges in with Todd and Katie in tow. Jim tells them to apologise and they do so. Hilary wants them both punished but Jim says they're good kids and they have apologised. Hilary says maybe Todd and Katie would be better off back with their parents but Jim tells her firmly that it's none of her business. (Go Jim!) Hilary says they shouldn't be surprised if she's doesn't come round to the Robinsons much anymore. When Hilary has gone, Scott comments sarcastically that that will be a real shame(!)
Paul and Gail's house
Henry is explaining to Bronwyn that he feels threatened by her going back to school - he doesn't want her to change. He says education turns normal people into intellectual bigheads(!) But Bronwyn promises that she's not going to change - she'll come home after night class and curl up with him and Kangaman(!)
Harold is back from his walk with Sky and opens the door expecting a surprise party, but the house is empty. He thinks everyone has forgotten, but then Kerry comes out with a cake. She says she's been waiting for them to be alone so they can talk. She tells Harold that despite them not seeing eye-to-eye on everything, she really does love him. Harold blows out the candle. He says he doesn't need to make a wish - all his wishes came true when his daughter told him she loved him (aww)
Paul and Gail's house
Henry has remembered about Harold's birthday and is just going over to see him. Bronwyn suggests that he his bath first. At that moment, water starts coming through the ceiling - Henry has left the bath running for too long!
