- Mark talks to Katarina bout fundraising
- Annalise is not happy about Katarina flirting with Mark. Julie says she might try to get rid of Annalise(!)
- Julie buys some dodgy comics off a dodgy bloke.
- Doug is publicly shamed over his role in selling off the historial Kia- Ora house
- The police ask Julie to take part in a honeypot operation to trap the dodgy comic bloke (Rohan Fitt)
- Hannah and Jesse apprehend an arsonist at the Kia- Ora house
Doug comes in from checking out the Kia- Ora house. He says he wishes the house had burnt as it would have solved a lot of problems(!)
Cody comes in and Doug stalks off to the pub.
Julie wants to do the honeypot. Phil thinks it's a really bad idea and Michael says he's sure the comics aren't that bad(!)
A public service announcement regarding censorship follows from him(!)
Phil eventually interjects and says it doesn't matter what the philosophy is, supplying the comics are against the law.
Mark, Katarina, Sassy, Debbie and Danni are discussing the wheelchair basketball fundraiser.
SASSY: It'll be great. Once our lot get used to the wheelchairs, we'll walk it in.
They all laugh, including Katarina.
SASSY: OK, we'll wheel it in(!)
The game is going to be tomorrow, so they'd better get practising!
When they've gone, Mark makes Katarina a cup of coffee.
Another police woman detective has turned up to talk to Julie. Phil says he's not happy about Julie putting herself in danger. She assures him there will be plain clothed officers in the shop and a couple outside.
JULIE: I'm sorry, darling, but we're involved. We have to do something about it.
Cody and Debbie are talking to the lady from the council. Unfortunately the council meeting agenda for tonight is long and they may not get around to discussing the Kia- Ora house.
When she's gone, Debbie and Cody wonder how they can show the council how special the house is. Cody gets an idea (Oh no! the last one didn't end well!)
Julie is ranting to Phil about Michael's attitude to censorship (he's against it). Phil thinks Michael has a point, but violence and pornography is a bit much in a comic.
Just then the phone rings and it's Rohan Fitt himself! Julie tells him that she's sold all the comics and she'd like some more. He says he'll bring some more in - he'll be there in about an hour.
She picks up the phone to ring the police.
PHIL: I still don't think this is a good idea.
JULIE: Philip, I've committed myself to it, I want to see it through.
PHIL: What if something goes wrong?!
JULIE: I'll take that chance.
Mark is listening to classical music when Cody pops round with a plan to save the Kia- Ora house. She needs to borrow Mark's video camera.
The police woman is going through the finer points of the sting with Julie. Phil is very agitated so Julie send him off to get some takeaway coffees.
POLICE WOMAN: Everything is under control, Mr Martin, there's no need to worry.
Outside the Coffee Shop
Danni and Sassy are having a break from the wheelchair basketball practice. They talk about a band that's playing - Honey Pigs. They are playing at a local place called the Geiger Counter. Danni really wants to go and Sassy says she should get Mark to take her. Embarrassed, Danni says that Mark is just a neighbour but Annalise has already got her hackles up!
Thankfully they are interrupted by Phil ordering 3 takeaway coffees from Annalise.
Kia- Ora House
The council lady is making a video of the Kia- Ora house with Cody and Debbie. She says she can show the video at the meeting.
Debbie heads off to the newsagency while Cody stays to film an extra part to the video.
Julie sees Rohan Fitt coming and quickly gets behind the counter. The police woman is posing as a customer in the shop. He saunters in. Julie greets him and tells him she wants to double her order.
ROHAN FITT: You are careful who you offer them to?
JULIE: Should I be?
ROHAN FITT: Yeah...there are certain people that aren't too keen on...you've just got to watch.
JULIE: Oh, I will! There's good profit in those comics.
ROHAN FITT: A lady after my own heart. I'll grab them out of the car. Won't be a minute.
He heads off.
The police woman smiles at Julie.
Kia- Ora House
Cody has added a part to the video about what amazing work Doug Willis has done in restoring the house. The council lady thinks the council will be impressed, and Doug deserves a chance to finish it.
Rohan Fitt has arrived back with more comics. He puts them on counter and Julie opens the till and pays him in cash. Just then, Debbie comes in.
DEBBIE: Hey mum! Sorry, I got caught up with Cody at the house. (She looks at the comics) What are you doing? I thought you were never going to buy that trash again!
JULIE: Be quiet, Debbie, this has got nothing to do with you.
DEBBIE: Yeah, but I thought you called the police.
Rohan realises the police woman is on to him and runs from the shop.
Phil is walking along with three takeaway coffees when Rohan crashes into him. Phil reacts quickly and holds him while the police catch up and arrest him. They take him away.
JULIE:(rushing up) Philip, are you all right?
PHIL: Yeah, no problems.
POLICE WOMAN: Thank you Mr Martin, that was great stuff.
DEBBIE: Dad, you're a hero!
Annalise is looking through recipes for the shop. Mark offers to give her a couple of his own.
Danni pops round to pick something up and Annalise isn't pleased to see her. She quickly sends her off. Cody then arrives to give Mark his video camera back and kisses Mark on the cheek. Annalise's face is like thunder!
MARK: What's with you?!
ANNALISE: Has every woman in Erinsborough got the hots for you?!
She is very jealous, but Mark assures Annalise that she is the only woman for him.
Julie and Debbie are recounting the "Phil the hero" story to Michael.
DEBBIE: To think I nearly blew it!
JULIE: I nearly died when you walked in and started carrying on about the comics!
They laugh and Michael starts going on about censorship again(!)
DEBBIE: Anyway, I think Dad should get a medal or something!
JULIE: So do I! Hero of the Year!
PHIL: Oh, come on, I didn't really do anything.
DEBBIE: Oh, Dad, it was terrific! Harrison Ford couldn't have done it any better.
The phone rings and Julie answers it. Mark wants Michael to go over and see him.
JULIE: So, what does the hero feel like eating for dinner?
PHIL: I don't know, what do heroes eat?!
JULIE: Iron bars.
DEBBIE: And steel plates.
PHIL: Think I might skip dinner...and lunch...and breakfast(!)
Michael and Mark chat about the Honey Pigs band. Mark needs his help. Danni has got a crush on him, and he wants to put her off. Therefore, he would like Michael to take Danni to see the band and Mark will pay for the tickets.
MICHAEL: I'd better warn you not, Danni is over any interest she had in me.
MARK: Michael, my man. I'm sure you can overcome that, huh?!
MICHAEL: You've got the tickets already, you *were* sure of yourself.
MARK: I knew you'd say yes.
MICHAEL: I think you're wasting your time.
Michael takes the tickets.
MARK: Thank you!
The police woman comes round with champagne to celebrate the success of the sting. She thanks them profusely for helping them today.
POLICE WOMAN: You, Mr Martin, well, you were marvellous. I thought I should let you know I've nominated you for a bravery award.
(Actually, Julie was a lot braver, I thought!)
They drink a toast to Phil. (Er, why doesn't Julie get a look in?!)
Cody comes in. There's a letter from Brad. Pam is having a hot flush and has got a fan going full blast.
Cody tells her that she's got something to cheer Doug up with.
PAM: What have you been up to?!
Michael pops round.
MICHAEL: I hear you're a Honey Pigs fan.
DANNI: Am I, what!
MICHAEL: So, how do you feel about going to one of their concerts with me?
DANNI: I'd go with anyone!
DANNI: Sorry, I didn't mean it that way. I can't afford the tickets.
MICHAEL: I've already got them, won't cost you a cent.
DANNI:(pleased) Really? But why me? You know, after everything...
MICHAEL: Look, I'll level with you. Mark gave me the tickets on the condition that I take *you*.
DANNI: Mark...why would he do that?
MICHAEL: Because Annalise thinks that you're hot for him. And, he wants to keep her sweet so if you're hanging out with me...
DANNI: Hmmm...she's really worried, huh?
MICHAEL: They're sixty bucks' worth. But, I mean, if you don't want to go...
DANNI: No, no! I want to. They're my favourite band and if Mark wants to pay, why not let him!
MICHAEL: Yeah, why not!
Cody is telling Pam about the video of the Kia- Ora houes that is going to the council. She says that she's trying to make it up to Doug too - if they can convince the council to buy it, they might employ Doug to finish the restoration work.
Just then, Doug comes in, still looking very down.
DOUG:(to Cody) I don't want to talk to you, not a word!
PAM: Oh, Doug, don't be so harsh...
DOUG: Harsh?! After what she did to me!
CODY: Dad, I know you're angry about losing...
DOUG: That's not half of it!
PAM: What do you mean?
DOUG: When I went to work this afternoon, the boss called me in. He saw my interview on telly. He reckons I'm not the right image to be a salesman for the company.
PAM: They didn't sack you?
DOUG: Yeah. They sacked me. Thanks to you and your interference, I'm out of a job! I hope you're happy.
