Summary/Images by: Tracy C/Karen (Katie)
Drew telling Susan that he and Libby need to work out things by themselves without her interfering.
Joe telling Pat he looked up to him when he was a little kid.
Tad telling Elly the only thing on offer is them being friends.
Lou is surprised to see Drew into work already and just about snaps Lou's head off when he mentions the club. Drew accidentally knocks his mug of coffee onto the floor and curses himself for doing so.
Outside Grease Monkey's, Elly and Michelle follow Tad and try to engage him in conversation but he ignores them.
The Coffee Shop
Lou catches Karl reading the paper and they talk about the search for Elly's father and Lou offers to help him with any contacts he can provide. Lou stops their chat when he spots Rosie and talks to her about the money they raised from the fate and agree to meet later to talk bingo! Once she leaves to eat outside, Lou has a smile on him as big as the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
No. 26
Lyn asks Joe if he is okay and he confirms he's never been better before she leaves. Pat comes out of the bedrooms as he didn't want to talk in front of Lyn and Joe says he doesn't keep secrets from his wife. Pat tries to talk about how hard it was raising his family compared to how easy Joe has it now. Joe doesn't quite think so and Pat reminds Joe that he was only 17 when he became a father and that his father used to hit him. Joe replies that he didn't know that. Pat asks if apologising would do anything and Joe replies that it would be a start. Pat tries to start saying that he could change it if he could but stops mid-sentence and instead says what's done is done.
The Coffee Shop
Michelle is trying to get Tad to go out with Elly and says that Elly is a real fun girl but he replies that she is an idiot especially for the way they were following him. She says that was her idea, which Tad doesn't believe. He also adds that Elly needs to grow up and learn how a relationship does work before he'd be interested.
Rosie comes back in looking for Harold and wants Lou to confirm that Harold is a fundraiser too. Lou tries to play it down and that he is the one who is really into business and hence can help her better and he *really* doesn't mind helping out.
Drew's carelessness nearly costs him when he places a towel round his neck before leaning into an engine that is running. Lou approaches the garage in time to see the towel get sucked into the moving mechanism.
Commercial break over, Drew tries to play down the seriousness of what might have happened but Lou says he isn't in any fit state to be working and orders him home before something really does happen.
Ramsay Street
Elly approaches Tad as he comes home from Uni. He tries to rush away from her saying he has assignments to do. Elly decides to be upfront and that she'd like him to get to know the real her but he isn't sure she is being honest or not but she tells him that she is. Tad however replies that although he does like her, them isn't an option before heading inside.
Lassiter's Complex
Lou has obviously told Karl & Susan about Drew's near-miss at the garage and they try to work out what to do about it. Karl suggests making the loan look like a business deal and the lightbulbs have gone off in Lou's head and he tells him that he's going to make their son-in-law a deal that only a raving lunatic would turn down!
They then run into Michelle and ask how the ban is going and you'd think she'd just swallowed a textbook as she reels off a perfect reply before dropping in that they won't need to worry about Elly soon...because she'll be going out with Tad! Once Michelle leaves, Karl tells Susan she owes him $5.
Drew & Libby's place
As Drew bonds with is son, Lou arrives but is round with a peace offering (beer!) and isn't round to have a go like Drew initially concludes. While Drew cradles a grizzly Ben, Lou tells him about his proposal - he is going to put 30% of his share of the garage into trust for Ben and that Drew can have the profits from the 30% too so he no longer has to work at the nightclub. Drew isn't exactly jumping for joy and thinks it is charity but Lou is doing a fine job trying to convince him otherwise.
No. 26
Michelle gives Pat a farewell present of a new hat and he thanks her for it. Lyn apologises for Steph and Flick not being there and Joe tells his dad he'll give him a lift to the station and Pat jokes with him if that is to make sure he really is leaving.
The Coffee Shop
Lou runs into Rosie again and she invites him to join her for a movie night. Rosie wants to invite Harold to their musicals movie marathon too but Lou is trying hard for that not to happen, even saying that Harold doesn't like musicals. All is going well until Tad arrives and spots one of the films and announces that it is Harold's favourite and he has a copy of it at home too!
No. 28
Tad is round setting up the hi-fi but really it is a subtle ploy for Susan to talk to him about Elly. She tells him that Elly is keen on him and Tad plays dumb and even goes so far as saying he wouldn't be interested either because she is too young and has a lot of stuff to sort out too.
Lou's Place
Drew enters after escaping from home because he couldn't sleep and enquires with Karl if Lou has mentioned his business proposal to him. Karl replies that he has and Drew explains he wants to turn it down as he wants to prove to his son that he can handle things by himself but after thinking that he wants to see his son's firsts, tells Lou that he accepts his offer.
No. 26
Joe arrives home and announces that Pat has left, even staying at the station to make sure the train left with him on it. Michelle wants to know if something happened as she's sensed a funny atmosphere between them and Joe explains they sorted some things out that should have been sorted out a long time ago. Michelle wants to know what it was, so Joe tells her his parents got married really young (mum 16, dad 17) and that things were tough which resulted in Pat taking his frustrations out on him, Mick and her Nana. (Notice that there is no mention of the 'other' brother - Dennis Tom Scully!) Michelle asks if Pat hit him and the silence confirms that he did, and she says that is terrible. Lyn tries to explain that Pat didn't know any other way to be a father. Joe tells Michelle that it is between them and Pat and not to let it affect her relationship with her grandfather. "No...of course not," replies Michelle before she goes and hugs her dad and as she heads off to her room, asks Joe if they can go and see a movie later on in the week which he agrees to.
Lyn says well done to Joe for the way he dealt it and asks if feels better having everything out in the open. Joe replies that it won't take away what happened, adding that it has helped that Pat acknowledged what happened, so he no longer thinks it was his fault.
No. 28
Tad comes round to tell Elly that the kissing, teasing, flirting, game-playing she has tried isn't working and is indeed a turn-off for him but Elly isn't listening and indeed, pressurises him into admitting whether he likes her or not. "A bit," replies Tad before confessing he really meant yes. Elly replies that if he is being honest then he'll kiss her! Tad tells her she should go into law...before leaning in and pashing her! However, Tad spots a photo of the family and in particular; Susan and breaks off the kiss and tells Elly he has to go...and meet some mates. Elly looks like she wants to kill him as he leaves the house.
