Terri warns Libby to stay out of the way.
Steph tells Marc that Joe liked him.
Marc and Steph are smooching on the couch when his phone starts to ring. He decides to leave it as it's probably work trying to get hold of him, but Steph jokes with him if he doesn't answer it then he may not keep his job, and won't be able to keep up the lifestyle that she's got used to. He sits up and promptly asks her to marry him. She agrees.
Libby and Drew's
Drew arrives back much to Libby's relief. She tells him that she wants to move as the lady upstairs has been freaking her out. She tells Drew she saw her on her phone talking about drugs, so she followed her, but she told her to stay out the way. She explains to him that it was the way that she spoke to her that scared her the most. Drew agrees to phone work and pull a sickie that evening.
Steph excitedly tells Lyn and Joe about Marc's proposal and her agreement. Joe isn't so sure on the idea but Lyn is thrilled by it. She tells them to keep it hush as Pat and Flick come through. Realising something's up, Pat questions the three of them, but Steph tells Flick that she's going to be able to meet her boyfriend tomorrow as she's lined up a job interview at Lassiter's. Joe has disappeared by this point, and Pat finds himself left out of a girly gossip, as he gets no response for an offer of a cup of tea.
It would appear that Karl is off in his own little world, rubbing his finger nails past one another, and has requested nothing but carrots, broccoli and distilled water for his dinner. He explains to Susan that he's carrying out a medical experiment and will be able to tell her what it's about after. She starts to ask him about Ellie and whether work experience will be a good idea for her, but Karl isn't listening.
SUSAN: It's like talking to a brick wall!
KARL: Sorry, we got a problem with a brick wall?
Susan starts to get frustrated with him, and tells him to stop rubbing his nails together. He gives her an annoyed glare before turning around and continuing.
Pat is telling the girls some stories about their grandmother. Joe is annoyed that he's doing so despite the fact he hardly spoke to her. Lyn encourages him to talk to Pat about it, but the phone rings. It's Mick, who tells Joe he's got a few days work for him up in Bendigo. He tells Pat he'll drop him home on the way. Pat isn't too impressed.
Terri is in her living room with many phones and pieces of paper around her. There is a knock on the door and she quickly hides everything away before going to answer. It's Drew, wondering why she was rude to Libby earlier. Terri admits that it's odd the way they invited her to dinner, then cancelled at the last minute, and then Libby was tail-gaiting her right round the city the other day. Drew jokes that it's Lib's habit as a journalist, but Terri isn't impressed.
TERRI: I have one piece of advice for you Drew. Butt out!
Joe is trying to help Flick prepare for her interview but she keeps coming back with silly answers, mainly revolving around earning money to go and buy clothes. Joe isn't impressed.
FLICK: Dad, they either like me or they don't. I can't do anything about that.
JOE: It's tough out there darlin', you need an edge.
Flick recons her personality will be enough, but Joe tells her it's serious and asks her another question. She refuses to answer, tells him she loves him, and wanders off, joking about not meeting any boys who would distract her on the way. Pat wander in and comments on Joe's style of parenting, mentioning that he's not tough enough. Joe bites back telling him that if he wants parenting advice he won't be coming to him. Pat tells him he would've never let him talk to him like that when he was younger.
JOE: Na, from memory you never let us talk!
Flick is buying a coffee, but it would appear that she has no money on her. She asks if Harold's around, but she's just missed her. Marc wander in and buys a drink. He tells the cashier to cover Flick's coffee too. She thanks him, and asks him his name, clearly interested in him. He tells her not to worry and that his name doesn't matter, before walking off.
Lyn and Pat sit and natter about Joe. He tells her that he never spoke much as a kid, and Lyn agrees that he's not one to show his emotions. Pat recons that he just hasn't spent enough time with him, and comments that it's been nice to stay with her. She heads through to the kitchen, and he spots her purse over on the side board. He slowly goes and stands next to it.
Karl is making himself a concoction of syrups for breakfast, but Susan doesn't understand why he can't just have a normal breakfast, and offer him some croissants. He tells her it's only for three more days. She wonders what they'll be called as grandparents; would he prefer Pop or Gramps. Karl doesn't like the idea and recons he'll be called Karl. Susan realises that he doesn't like the idea of changing to become a grandparent and starts teasing him. He starts his nail rubbing thingy, which annoys her back.
Lyn catches up with Flick who is going through the list of questions that Joe gave her to help prepare for the interview. Lyn mentions that Joe isn't his usual self, and things between him and Pat aren't all as sweet as they seem, but it's from way back and she comments that they can sort themselves out. Lyn asks Flick if she's still sworn off men, but Flick tells her she saw this gorgeous guy earlier. Libby arrives with Ben and asks Jane for a bucket of coffee! Flick heads off, leaving Libby and Lyn to natter about Ben's sleeping habits. Libby agrees with the idea of controlled crying, but mentions how Drew isn't so keen on the idea.
Flick arrives to hear Pat on the phone to a mate talking about where he's going to look to find somewhere else to stay. Flick tells him he doesn't need to look anywhere else as they love having him to stay, but Pat isn't so sure.
Drew and Libby's Flat
Libby is cradling Ben as there's a bang on the door. A man rushes in demanding 'it', but won't listen to Libby as she tells him she hasn't got 'it'. Terri appears and tells the man to get upstairs as it's her he's after. She apologises to Libby and heads upstairs after the guy.
Flick is practicing the list of questions that Joe gave her, but doesn't seem to understand why she'd need to know the capital of Finland or the ingredients to a cosmopolitan. Joe tells her she never knows what they're going to ask. Flick mentions that Pat no longer has a place to stay as they knocked down his old accommodation block, but between Flick and Lyn, Joe agrees he can stay longer. Flick and Pat head off to Lassiter's, leaving Lyn and Joe to talk. Joe isn't happy about his father staying longer and tells Lyn she doesn't understand. Lyn tells him she doesn't understand because he's never told her. Joe refuses to back down on his side, but Lyn recons it's probably a good idea that he stays longer, as it'll give them a chance to talk. She reminds him, he's the only father he's got.
Drew and Libby's Flat
Libby is packing to go and stay with her parents. Drew isn't convinced, but Libby explains how the guy was a friend of Terri's and clearly after drugs. Drew calls the police, telling Libby she'll have to talk to them.
Pat arrives back with Harvey to an empty house. He spots Lyn's purse and picks it up. Harvey starts to bark and Joe walks in, spotting him with Lyn's purse. He accuses Pat of taking money, but Pat claims he was putting $50 in to cover his board and lodgings as Lyn wouldn't accept it before. Lyn arrives and checks her purse to find an extra $50. Lyn tells Joe to return the money to his father and apologise, but Joe refuses.
Flick bumps into Marc as she arrives. She comments that they should stop meeting, and it leads him to find out that she doesn't have a boyfriend. She goes to give him the money for the coffee, but he tells her to give it to someone who needs it. She thanks him, and explains that she has a job interview in a bit. He wishes her luck.
FLICK: Ah, it's nothing a trained monkey couldn't do!
He wishes her luck and exits the pub, leaving her standing, gazing in the direction of the doors.
