- Michael and Phil are bonding.
- Danni asks Mark if she can work in the kitchen again.
- Julie sees a couple ballroom dancing and looks interested.
- Annalise has a makeover.
Phil is looking back over his video while Julie ballroom dances solo around the room. She tells Phil she's put their name down for ballroom dancing - in an hour!
Phil looks horrified.
PHIL: But I can't do that stuff, I tried it when I was a kid, it was a massacre! They gave the girl steel- capped boots(!)
Julie insists that everything will be fine.
JULIE: Darling, you're one of life's achievers.
PHIL: And you're one of life's flatterers, don't think I don't know it!
She drags Phil reluctantly around the room.
PHIL: Alright, but I will not be responsible for any foot surgery(!)
Annalise is pondering what rhymes with 'orange'. Mark says it's well- known that nothing rhymes with it in the English language.
Mark is doing a menu for a Turkish cultural group.
Annalise is writing a love poem and struggling for a rhyme. Mark says that not all poems have to rhyme.
Danni pops in and tells Mark that she wants to treat Cheryl - if he would help her with the cooking. Maybe tonight as everyone is out. Mark agrees.
Annalise comes back into the room and Danni looks in surprise at her new poet's clothes.
Cheryl tells Gaby that Parkside Pacific are planning a heavy promotion. Gaby already knows about it and says they have a huge campaign planned. She plans to match them and is interviewing for a marketing person on Monday.
Mark has just about finished cooking and Danni is trying to engage him in conversation about his life in Paris. She flirts with him, but he is oblivious(!)
Rick comes in and Mark says he can help Danni out! Danni is not pleased.
Julie is dancing well with the instructor. Then Julie 'dances' with Phil and he's not very good (although enthusiastic)
At the end of the session, Phil has enjoyed himself and the instructor tells them all to practise!
Annalise has decided to get into free- form (non- rhyming) poetry. She has written a poem:
Is she stupid or is she a tramp?
When she bats her eyes at the man I love.
I think she's stupid cos she's only a kid.
But she's better watch herself or I'll run her over with the car and leave a skid.
Mark tells her to stop being jealous - Danni is just a kid. Annalise assures Mark that she trusts him.
Annalise asks Mark where the video they made is. Mark realises in shock that the tape is still in the camera that he lent to Phil!
Cody, Rick, Gaby, Phil and Julie are about the watch the seal video.
Phil rewinds the tape and plays it. The sexy stuff start and they all look at in shock.
JULIE: Perhaps we should turn it off.
RICK: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, this is just getting interesting!
There's a frantic knock at the door and it's Mark. On the video is Mark and Annalise being silly in fancy dress (we all thought it was a sexy one, but no!)
Cheryl is impressed with Danni's effort with the dinner.
CHERYL: What's the catch?
CHERYL: What's all this going to cost me?
Danni explains that she's been a pain lately and just wants to make it up to Cheryl.
Cheryl starts saying how amazing Mark is - and how he has a girlfriend he loves(!)
DANNI: Annalise is an airhead! Mark is so smart, they don't go together at all!
Cheryl tells her to smile and walk away.
CHERYL: I've got a gorgeous little girl. Who's the greatest kid in the world, and she'll get her own men in her own good time.
DANNI: Gee, thanks, Mum(!)
Annalise is embarrassed about the home movie. But she says she'll channel the emotion into a poem. In fact, she wrote a poem while Mark was over at No.26.
My video is a photo of my soul as well as my video.
Why won't interfering people leave it alone?
She asks Mark what he thinks and he says he likes it, although it's a little on the short side.
She tells him off for not encouraging her or giving her constructive criticism. Mark sighs.
Gaby is doing breathing exercises and Cheryl joins her. There are three applicants coming in today.
CHERYL: There are those out there who would not take us seriously, you know. Two pregnant women running Lassiter's.
GABY: Who knows?! Maybe one of the other applicants is pregnant too.
One of the applicants is watching them from the outer office looking amused.
Rick and Cody are looking at their results. Rick seems to have failed everything except Japanese, although Cody has aced it.
Rick despairs, not knowing what he's going to tell him parents.
RICK: If I'm not back in an hour, drag the river(!)
Gaby and Cheryl are finishing up an interview with a bloke called Chris. They are impressed with him.
Cheryl observes that Gaby is very cynical about men.
Rick is despairing about his marks while Annalise bangs on about poetry and creating an atmosphere in the Coffee Shop for a poetry gathering.
Suddenly Rick gets an idea and rushes off.
Rick comes in to see Cheryl. He tells her he wants to train in the hotel industry, full time. Cheryl says if he's serious about going to TAFE and pulling his weight. Rick assures her that he will. Cheryl agrees as long as his parents are OK with it (and they speak to Cheryl directly, not Rick's version of the conversation!)
Cody comes in and offer to tutor Rick so he can pass his final exams. He tells her he's got another plan and rushes off.
Rick comes to talk to Sally. She already knows about his results and is quite shocked by them.
RICK: Can we just be straight for a minute. You and me, the big problem, what is it?
SALLY: We've been through this, and there is no 'you and me'
RICK: This is the last time I'll hassle you, please! Look, what do you think the big problem is, why *can't* we be together?!
SALLY: The problem's an ethical one, you're a student and I'm your teacher, there can't be anything between us.
RICK: OK, if that wasn't the case, *could* things go further?
SALLY: What's the use of speculating, Rick?
RICK: Look, I just want to know. You do like me, don't you? I mean, as a person. Just give me an honest answer.
SALLY: Sure I do, but it's not relevant.
RICK: Yes, see! It is! There is something there and we both know it.
SALLY: I can't continue this converation any further.
She gets up to leave.
RICK: Sally, you're no longer my teacher, so there's no problem.
SALLY: What are you talking about?
RICK: School. I'm quitting. Today.
SALLY: You can't be serious.
RICK: It'll solve everything. From tomorrow morning, you're not longer my teacher. So there's no reason we can't be together.
