Lou tells Drew that he reckons the Hancocks can afford to pay their bill at the garage as they're able to fund an overseas trip.
Joel tells Dee that he didn't like the way Darcy was treating her, and moves to kiss her.
It's the morning after and Joel and Dee start off by ignoring each other. Dee tells Joel of how some guy in America had got his tongue stuck to the ice on his car whilst he was trying to blow into the keyhole to defrost it. Joel jumps to the conclusion that all American's are stupid, though Dee doesn't agree at it soon turns into a petty argument. Toadie arrives with a collection of bagels for breakfast and asks what their plans are for the day. They both simultaneously spiel off a different list and Dee makes an exit.
Evan is grabbing some more supplies with the kids for their helicopter ride! Lou arrives and Evan pays him the next installment for the garage. He thanks Lou for being able to do them in installments, as it really helps. Emily tells Lou about the helicopter ride they are going on, she gives Lou one of the melting chocolate biscuits that she made.
Joel arrives back from his run to find Dee recording some tracks to CD for the car. She notices that he's limping and offers to look at his knee, but he declines. He asks how it's going, so she tells him she's got two more tracks left. He didn't mean the CD. She tells him the more she thinks about it the harder it's getting, he tells her that it does get better, but he hasn't read about it yes. She asks him to tell her when he's read that chapter. They have a meaningful look, but Joel excuses himself to go and stretch.
Lou asks Toadie how Dee is coping. He says she's doing OK, but wonders how Darcy is. Lou tells him he hasn't seen Darcy in a while and is surprised by his actions, he was a good bloke who rescued Lolly and helped him through his pain killer addiction. Toadie points out that he's also a lying, deceitful person. He worries about Tess as she doesn't have many friends for support.
Leo and Emily arrive back all excited from the helicopter flight. Leo raves on about how he took control, and Emily runs around the room madly doing a helicopter impression. Evan comes through with some lunch for them all and Leo comments that when he's a chess champion he's going to buy himself a helicopter. Evan points out that it's not a well paid career, but Leo talks about the associates he will be able to make from it, like with removal companies! Evan tells him it's not that easy and that in order to earn high money he needs to be professional which means to learn from his mistakes. Leo is unable to grasp the concept that loosing a match is good.
Lou tells Drew of the helicopter joy flight that Evan had booked for the morning, and wonders how he can afford to spend approximately $80 on a ten minute flight, when he can't pay the garage bill. Dee apologises to Drew that she can't use the bathroom as it's filthy, and heads over to Grease Monkeys. Drew and Lou realise that neither of them cleaned it last week, but Lou recons it's because she's still hung up on Darcy.
JOEL: I've done something.
TOADIEL: Joel, this could be one of those moments, where an extended vocabulary could really be an asset!
Toadie manages to ascertain that it's to do with love and by the expression on Joel's face, it could be related to the moment he had with Dee earlier in the day.
Drew and Lou argue over the cleaning of the garage. Drew tells him they either both muck in or hire a cleaner to do the lot.
LOU: I hate you when you're assertive.
Joel and Toadie end up arguing over Joel's relationship, with Dee. Toadie tells him to get a grip as he's only just got over world war one and doesn't want round two quite yet. Joel leaves, and the lady at the bar inquires as to whether the advice Toadie giver out is free or part of the service.
Dee is busy cleaning the lounge when she comes across a card on the dresser. She opens it and it reads 'yours forever, Darcy'. She sits down and looks at it for a while, before ripping it in half and trying to stop herself from crying.
The lady at the bar starts talking to Toadie, she tells him that she thinks he's a good judge of character, and asks her to judge the guy sitting at the table on the other side of the bar (Drew). He asks her to go first, so she recons he's a tradie, who is married, but with a few marital problems at the moment, and a dark secret. Toadie calls out to Drew, and asks how Lib is. He replies she's fine so the lady congratulates Toadie on winning. She introduces herself as Sheena's mother Rhonda. As she pays her bill, she mentions that she's going to cut a tree stump in her garden, but Toadie tells her that his shift finishes soon and offers his service. She takes it as she gets on very well with Cancerian men, like Toadie!
Dee is reading the card which she'd previously ripped up, complete and intact. Joel walks in and sits next to her, he opens the card and tells her she's better off without him. She agrees, but comments that it's funny how you keep onto things. He starts tucking her hair behind her ear, but she tells him that they are just friends. They agree they need to talk. Joel suggests they take the moment.
Lou and Drew are donned with protective mask and gloves, as they get the cleaning chemicals out of the box. Drew thought that the idea of paying for a cleaner would persuade him around, but Lou claims it was the thought of customers suing for hepatitis C. Drew picks up one of the bottles and starts reading the label.
DREW: Don't mix with other chemicals, only use in ventilated areas, and avoid skin contact. That doesn't leave you with much hope, does it!
LOU: My mother used to use, white vinegar, bicarb of soda and lemon juice.
Drew points out that his mother probably used to clean on a weekly cycle, where as for them it's about every three years. Lou is to do the sink, while Drew takes the 'dunny'. They prepare for a Scottish battle against the germs!
Toadie realises that the only way the stump is going to move is by sheer brute strength. Rhona rubs his arm, telling him he's got a lot of that. She reveals that she and Sheena share many secrets, and that there is nothing for him to be shy about. She leaves him to tackle the stump.
Dee and Joel are both pacing around the room finishing off each others sentences! They agree that they took it as a moment of passion, without thinking and with Joel still dating Flick there is no way that anything could or should happen between them. However they both admit to still having feelings for one another. They agree to remain friends, and hug, though it is a little more lingering than a friendship hug, and Joel makes a subdued exit.
Drew and Lou celebrate the cleaning of the bathroom with a drink. Drew pulls a key out of his pocket, which they found behind the cistern. They wonder where it came from as neither of them put it there, and they are unable to recognise the style of key. Drew has to leave to see Lib, but as he leaves, Evan arrives. He asks Lou for a bottle of his finest red. Lou points out that it'll be £90, so Evan asks for something in the $30 range. Realising he's left his wallet behind, he asks for it to be put on tab, but Lou refuses, telling him to shop elsewhere. He tells him he's fed up of their family spending when they're giving him a discount on the car. Evan informs him that the holiday brochures were for Emily's school project, Leo won the helicopter flight, and Maggie's shopping spree was for Law books. He tells Lou to stuff the wine and leaves.
Rhona watches from a distance as Toadie struggles to dig the tree root out. She comes over and offers him a drink. She talks to him for a while about Sheena's ex- friend who was handy with a chainsaw. Toadie claims he's not very good with tools, but Rhona notices that he's worked up a sweat and quite tense. She offers him a Shiatsu, a massage technique she learnt at the school of life. He tries to get out of it, but she tells him to stay still, and starts massaging his shoulders and head.
