Summary/Images by: Shona/Karen (Katie)
- The Wiggles gate crash Tad and Paul's party
- Lou pleads with the judge not to take Lolly from him
Lou walks outside, looking distressed, as sombre music plays and stops to support himself against one of the pillars.
Number 24
Flick has a good idea of how to clean the place up - get the partygoers to compete against each other to see how much garbage they pick up (the winner gets a prize - one of Paul's pressies!). Flick takes the Wiggles over to see Emily.
Lou arrives, asking for Harold. Tad asks if everything's okay.
Number 32
Emily is *bored* and Matt isn't doing much to help matters. Then the Wiggles come by and save the day! They start to sing that potato song again. Matt and Flick join in and do a good job of pretending they're enjoying it.
Number 22
Lolly is packing her things into a box. Lou tells the telephone chipmunk Karl not to come over as he wants to spend time with Lolly. Tad appears - Lolly answers the door to him even though Lou tells her not to. He asks how it went and Lou says it's nothing major. Tad spots Lolly packing and asks if Lolly would like to come over to number 32 to see the Wiggles again but Lou thinks she's seen them enough today. Tad leaves and Lou tells Lolly to hurry.
A Good Hair Day
Lyn is cutting Joe's hair. He and Flick have an argument about mullets. Flick is going to take the job at the salon even though she has bigger plans than just hairdressing. She can start tomorrow but leave the attitude at the door.
Lyn answers the phone to Dee, who's sounding a bit low. Lyn asks how she is and she says she has a cold. Lyn hopes the treatment will cheer her up - she'll see her tomorrow.
Number 24
Tad and Paul try to get a horrible mark out the wall. Harold bursts in, only caring about Lou and not the mess in the house. Tad tells him about Lolly packing away her stuff. Harold rushes out.
Number 22
The front door is unlocked but the house is deserted. Harold is disappointed to find stuff gone. He spots the yellow pages, lying open beside the phone, and redials the last number. He hangs up.
HAROLD: Oh Lou - what have you done?
Somewhere in the bush
Lou and Lolly have a picnic by the car. Lou says they have a long way to go - they're on a special adventure and he pretends they are a crime-fighting duo who have an invisible spray!
Number 24
Harold wonders what Lou was thinking. Joe and Lyn come round and Harold tells them that Lou's run off. Joe thinks "good on him", which Lyn scolds him for - what kind of life could they have? They realise that it won't look good for Lou on appeal if he's found out. Harold plans to go and bring him home before the handover tomorrow. Lyn will look after the shop and Joe, with his wide knowledge of the roads in the area, will accompany Harold.
Lou's Place
Matt looks over the pictures he took of the Wiggles - Flick thinks they're brilliant. Tad and Paul come in and thank her for leaving them with the mess (the competition didn't work as Paul was offering his membership to the Britney Spears' fanclub as top prize).
Flick and Paul go to play pool and Matt asks Tad how things are going between him and Flick. He thinks they're better off as friends as she's more interested in her career. He can tell Matt's interested and tells him not to go there - it messes with your head.
Flick wonders if she could get a job here in addition to the salon - there's a comp where a barmaid could win a scuba diving trip. Flick suggests Matt go in for it but he's the wrong gender, obviously, and can't dive.
The Coffee Shop
Lynnie is working away, outside, when Flick spots her. Lyn reluctantly tells her about Lou and Lolly, making it clear she can't tell anyone. Joe calls - they haven't found them yet.
Somewhere in the bush
Joe isn't sure they can do this alone - maybe they should think about calling the cops. Lou stressed, on roads like these, is not a good thing. Harold realises that Joe thinks that something's happened to him. Joe says he doesn't know and that's the point - they just don't know.
The next morning Lou tells Lolly not to go outside and gives her a row when he realises she's turned his mobile phone on. He then apologises - they'll still have a big adventure.
A Good Hair Day
Dee is having her hair done. Tad and Paul come in and they don't have any news. Tad thinks maybe it's for the best - at least Lou's got his daughter.
Flick is freaked out about the state of a customer's scalp and she's *not* touching her. Lyn tells her that she has to get used to it. Flick says it's horrible and, as it happens, she's on her break anyway. She wanders off and Lyn sighs.
Lolly hears a noise and wants to open the curtain but Lou tells her not to, making up an excuse about her invisible spray not working anymore. Lou peers out to see some people getting out their car, clearly holidaymakers.
Lou's Place
Tad and Paul have a very loud argument and Matt comes over, telling them to take it outside! Everyone claps. Matt is obviously practicing for the barmaid comp. Tad thinks Matt should have come in much earlier than that. Matt looks at the other things he has to practise. Tad thinks the fact his application got accepted was down to pure novelty value.
Flick asks Matt round after he's finished. Matt happily agrees, only for his dreams of romance to be shot down in flames: she was only testing him for the comp. Tad notices that Flick's keen for Matt to win - she's just helping out a friend. Matt drops his tray of drinks.
Lou and Lolly chuck about a ball outside as Harold and Joe pull up. Lou spots them and tells Lolly to go inside. He tells them that it's not going to work. Joe says he doesn't blame him but is this the best way? Lou thinks that, as she's his daughter, he can do as he pleases. Harold says he can't - not anymore. He believes Lou and Lolly should be together but Lou has to do it legally. Joe asks him to come home - no one has to know this ever happened. If he keeps going down this road he could lose Lolly for good. Lou asks how can he let them take her - she won't be able to trust anyone if Lou lets them take her away.
LOU: I can't do it to her. I can't do it to me. Just leave us alone.
He goes inside his caravan.
A Good Hair Day
Dee isn't herself and Lyn asks if anything's wrong. Dee says she had a death in the family recently and Lyn passes on her condolences. She didn't realise how close they were until she lost them. Lyn rambles on about unsaid things etc and thinks she might have needed Darcy's support. But Dee is glad Darcy wasn't around - he did her more harm than good. She wants to move on but still feels a bit stuck. Lyn thinks she will move on, eventually. Dee wants her to cancel the trim and give her a change - a big one.
Caravan Site
Joe talks to Lolly about the horses.
Harold and Lou talk in the caravan - Harold wants Lou to think again but Lou's done enough thinking. What kind of law takes a man's child from him? He has no choice but to break it. Harold says they do have a choice: if Lou doesn't go back now he'll spend every moment looking over his shoulder.
LOU: At least I'll have Louise.
