- Cody thinks a lot of things have happened to Hannah that can't be explained.
- Drew reveals to Gaby that he and Cody are married.
- Andrew tells Debbie that he's gay.
Cody isn't looking forward to Pam arriving home this afternoon (she's going to freak about Drew)
CODY: Beam me up, Scotty!
Gaby thinks the main thing is that Cody is sorting it out by getting a divorce. She can even keep her Green Card if she visits the US once a year.
Cody still thinks Drew is up to something - he didn't need to come all the way to Australia to ask her for a divorce.
Coffee Shop (Kitchen)
Dave is showing Annalise some recipes for shampoo etc that belonged to Mark's mum. They chat, and Dave says he's ready to sell up so that he can go and see Australia again.
Mark comes in saying it's very busy up front. They both roll their eyes at him.
Annalise asks Dave for the ingredients for the chutney and he reluctantly tells her (she needs it for the label if they are going to sell the chutney). He reels of a list of ingredients...
DAVE: And some herbs.
ANNALISE: What herbs?
DAVE:(cagily) Mixed herbs.
ANNALISE: What mixed herbs?
DAVE: Just herbs, a bit of this, a bit of that. Herbs, mixed herbs. That'll do, nobody'll complain about that.
ANNALISE: Oh, yeah, I suppose not.
She heads back out to the shop.
Helen and Phil are telling Cody that all of Hannah's premonitions are coincidences. While sÃ©ances might be fun for Cody and friends, they're worried that Hannah will take it too seriously.
PHIL: I know you didn't set out to upset her, but she *is* upset. I'd appreciate your co- operation in letting the subject drop.
PHIL: Thank you.
Mark is very stressed while Annalise is laid back. Apparently Rick needs help at the bar in the Waterhole, so Annalise heads off.
Dave comes out to get the labels for the chutney. He laughs to see that Annalise has done poems. He's surprised to hear that Annalise writes poems, and would like to read more of them.
Phil is back from the school run. They chat about Hannah's "supernatural power".
HELEN: You don't honestly believe there's anything to this poltergeist nonsense, do you?
Helen looks at him.
PHIL: No, of course now. There are perfectly logical explanations for everything that's happened. (Pause) I'm just not sure what they are just yet(!)
He wonders whether Hannah should see psychiatrist, but Helen says it's just a phase on Hannah's part.
Debbie tells Cody that Macca is gay.
DEBBIE: Can you imagine how confusing it must be for him, though? He feels that way, but he's still attracted to me. It must be hell for the poor guy.
DEBBIE: It's no wonder he pushed me away. But, I can be patient.
CODY: Deb, he's gay! He's not interested, you're the wrong gender, so just forget about him.
DEBBIE: Do you know what the most powerful force in the Universe is?
DEBBIE: No, love. Love can change anything.
The shop is quiet now. Dave is playing his guitar when Annalise comes back. She is amazed to hear him singing one of her poems (Mark gave him some old ones) Dave tells her he thinks her poems are really terrific and he'd like to show them to a friend of his who's a publisher. She is skeptical, but Dave gets straight on the phone to his mate!
Cody calls by to see Macca.
CODY: What's the big idea letting Debbie suffer like that?
MACCA: Not the Deb grief again!
CODY: Well, what did you let her get so involved for?
MACCA: I never encouraged it, Cody. You know that. Friendship, yes. Anything else was totally in her imagination.
Cody just looks at him.
MACCA: She's obviously told you.
CODY: Yes. It doesn't matter to me.
CODY: Why didn't you tell her earlier?
MACCA: Because it was none of her business. I wasn't leading her on and my personal life's private.
CODY: It's more like a secret. Haven't you come out yet?
MACCA: I'm not ashamed of who I am, OK? I just don't feel the need to shout it from the rooftops. I love this job and I wouldn't do anything to joepardise it.
CODY: So, tough luck, Debbie?
MACCA: Problem solved.
CODY: You wish.
Helen has got a surprise for Hannah - she's bought her some dancing gear, including ballet shoes.
Over a musical montage, Hannah tries on her new stuff and gives Helen a twirl of her tutu.
Hannah is showing Phil her new dance stuff. He shows her his new worm composter, for turning scraps into fertiliser. She's amazed to see all the worms.
Debbie is looking at a photo of Macca.
DEBBIE:(quietly) I love you.
Hannah is chattering on about ballet and Debbie throws her out of the room.
Dave introduces Elliot Patterson, his publisher friend.
ELLIOT: My goodness. I didn't expect to meet someone like you in the cultural wastelands of suburbia.
ANNALISE: Er...thank you.
Elliot goes on to tell her he's very impressed with her poetry. They're only a small publisher, but they want to read more of Annalise's poems.
DAVE:(to Annalise) I know he sounds full of it, but he really does know his stuff.
Annalise laughs nervously.
DAVE: This is just the start of bigger and better things, believe me.
Gaby wants Phil to help out at the office while she's on maternity leave - just four weeks.
PHIL: That's all the maternity leave you're taking?
PHIL: You think it's long enough?
GABY: Philip, I'm having a baby, not major surgery!
PHIL: Yeah, I know, but...
GABY: Four weeks will be stacks! A week off before the birth, three weeks afterwards. Then I'll get back on deck.
Phil laughs, derisively.
PHIL: We'll see(!)
GABY: Women are taking control of their lives, and if that makes you men a little uncomfortable, then I'm sorry, but you're going to have to get used to it. Four weeks. Do we have a deal?
PHIL:(resignedly) Yes, OK.
GABY:(excitedly) Oh, yes!
PHIL: But I think you're in for *big* surprise!
Elliot is overcome with emotion after reading Annalise's poems.
ELLIOT: Remarkable. The verse is fresh, the style, at times, is naive, but also witty. And eclectic.
ELLIOT: One no sooner feels on familiar ground with the words when you pull the rug from under us with a ??? that I'd boldly describe as haiku- esque.
ANNALISE: I do?!
ELLIOT: Breathtakingly so.
DAVE: I think he likes them.
ANNALISE: Well, you know, this is amazing, I thought all this was rubbish. I was going to throw it out!
ELLIOT: That would be a crime against literature. Um...this one. "Deep in the cup, soaked in the heat, yet all too soon I'm squeezed on the spoon. I dangle, I dangle, and into the bin. Is a drug called caffeine really a sin? Compacted and pulped, the future is ill. Used and forgot, I'm merely landfill" It's moving in its simplicity. What inspired that?
ANNALISE: Oh, my job. That's why it's called 'Tea- bag'.
ELLIOT: It's so much more...it's about life, it's about love, it's the human condition.
ANNALISE: It is?
DAVE: So, Elliot, what do you reckon? Worth publishing?
ELLIOT: There are some rough edges that need to be polished. But with the right guiding hand, and I humbly offer my services in that regard, I think we'll produce explicit gems. More than enough for an anthology, anyway.
ANNALISE: What, a book?
ELLIOT: A book.
Phil tells Helen that he's filling in for Gaby's four week maternity leave. She laughs at Gaby's optimism.
Helen tells Hannah to go and change out of her tutu because they're about to start cooking. She reluctantly stomps off to change.
Just after she's gone, a glass Hannah set down spookily moves of its own accord and falls to the floor.
PHIL: I didn't touch it. I didn't go near it!
Hannah accidentally knocks over Debbie's picture of Andrew. Debbie takes great offence and sets upon Hannah physically. Phil charges in and tells them off.
No.26 (Living Room)
Annalise pops round to see Helen and tell her about the publisher. She was wondering if Helen would design a cover for the book. Annalise ponders that she needs a title for her anthology first.
Cody and Gaby are making dinner and chatting about Pam's return.
Just then, a biker knocks the door. He asks whether Pam is back yet, but it seems he's got ahead of her. It's Sam Kratz!
