Libby and Drew's
After settling Ben down, Susan tries to help Libby, but Libby can't bring herself to do anything. Karl carries in the rest of the bags and tries to encourage Libby to come over the road and stay with him for a few nights, so she isn't alone. Libby isn't responding and just stands in the doorway numb. She hears Ben cry and heads silently upstairs.
Steph arrives back from Oakey as Connor is heading out to walk Harvey. He offers to do something for her, but she kindly declines and he heads out. Flick is surprised to see her as Lyn and Joe have gone to collect her, but she caught a lift with Libby. Flick offers to cook her some breakfast for which Steph is grateful. Steph sits at the kitchen table, almost in tears; Flick doesn't know what to say.
Nina is still playing as Connor arrives. He asks her to play for him, but she refuses, and takes Harvey back outside. She asks what he was up to and explains that he was taking the dog for a walk. He tries to talk about her piano playing but she changes the subject back to Michelle.
Flick pops over to ask Stuart about Steph as she's still not talking. Stuart says it's part of loosing one of their best mates. Flick understands, and asks if he possibly sent her anything, as she received a bracelet and hopes it isn't from Marc. He informs her he didn't and is sorry that he can't help, so she decides to head off. As she leaves a friend of Stuart's arrives, he hands back the bracelet to Flick as she heads out.
Libby's minus Drew
Karl and Susan discuss how they could help Libby; Susan offers to pick up some supplies. Karl is still quite keen for her to come and stay with him, but Susan points out she probably wants to be around things that remind her of Drew. Karl thanks her for being there for both Libby and himself; Susan isn't sure how she's helped. Libby arrives and thanks them for their help, but wishes to be alone.
Nina explains how her favourite composer wrote a virtuoso for just a small orchestra and is only a couple of years older than her. Connor wants to hear more about it but has to go and walk Harvey. He tells her not to be ashamed of her talent for music.
Amanda spots Flick in the shop and starts talking about Stuart. She explains that it's good that he's got his friends around him at a time like this and talks about some film reference, from which I haven't seen. Flick hasn't seen the film either, and confirms that she and Stu are just friends. Amanda explains that she spotted Stu in the Men of Erinsborough calendar and hopes that they will become more than just friends. At that moment Stu arrives; he explains how he's just had to break the news about Drew to the first of many customers at the garage. Amanda informs him that Flick is going to come and see the movie with them that evening.
Libby slowly comes downstairs and notices the travel sac on the bottom step, complete with the name label that Drew had written. She sits on the stairs and leans her head into the bag.
Flick pops over to talk to Stuart, she explains how she didn't really agree to the film that evening, but will try and come if she can. Stu will try to persuade Dee and Toadie into coming. He asks her to listen to a bit of a letter his brother sent him about Drew:
''...so to get the neighbours back we threw eggs on their air-conditioner to stink their house out. Drew was laughing so hard, he couldn't even pick an egg up. Mrs Har...someone's head came out of the window and one of the eggs I threw hit her straight in the head. Drew took all the blame; never even threw a single egg.''
STUART: That's Drew for you. He always does the right thing by you; he tells you when you've been an idiot and he never holds it against you. He's your mate and that's that.
Flick wonders about going to visit Libby, but knows they need some space. Stuart seems adamant that he is going to care for Libby and Ben and make sure they are never in need of anything.
Connor joins Nina and jokes that he may not be visiting Harold in the Coffee Shop much longer as soon he'll be reading his own cook books. He points out that being afraid of letting people know who you really are is being your own worst enemy. Nina knows what he's trying to do and tells him it's impossible with her family background as she'll never be able to compete against her mother; who she recons is an excellent singer. Connor tries to persuade her to let an audience decide who's best and Nina agrees to think about it.
Both Flick and Stuart have arrived to early to meet the others and neither seems particularly keen about going to watch the film. Stuart recons Amanda means well, but Flick isn't sure that Toadie will see it that way. Flick wonders just how much Stuart likes about Amanda and he comments that she's a nice girl. He asks if she's said anything to Steph about the bracelet yet, but Flick isn't sure what to say. She may donate it to Rosie's charity auction; but that may bring someone else bad luck. As they are both feeling a bit down, Stuart decides they may as well start the party on their own.
Steph is trying to get some food together, but Libby tells her to stop; she's not hungry. Steph goes to sit with Libby who is still sitting by the travel bag on the base of the stairs.
STEPH: When I thought Woody had died, everyone was trying to do the right thing and say the right thing, but then they'd just go back to their own lives like nothing had changed, and I really hated that. Everyone just kept expecting me to get back on my feet, and do all those stupid little things you're supposed to do, like eat. Then bit by bit, I was back doing all those stupid little things like everyone else, but when I look back at it, I really think that's what dragged me through each day; it became something to hold on to. 'Cause I know without Drew it feels like you've got nothing to hold on to.
Susan arrives with some shopping bags, but decides to leave them by the front door and leaves them to it.
Stuart and Flick are mucking around with the dartboard trying to talk in a multitude of languages/accents. Stuart attempts Mexican, followed by Flick attempting Japanese and Stuart's Swedish. As they muck around, Amanda arrives, so they decide to quit the darts and go for a round of beers instead. Amanda jokes that Flick should order in Welsh, but Flick laughs off the suggestion.
Susan pops over to see Steph. Steph admits that she too was close to Drew and didn't get a chance to say thank you or goodbye. Susan tells Steph she could see that when they were at the hospital in Oakey. They talk about the earlier incident and Susan admits she didn't mind leaving them as she wouldn't know what to say or how to be a mum to Libby. Steph tells her that if it had been her husband who had just died she wouldn't have the strength to be as polite as Libby is being and that her mum would be there to help her through it and just put up with the screaming. Susan seems grateful for the advice.
Flick tells Amanda of the time when she ran off to Sydney and Stu her 'knight in shining armour' came to rescue her. Stuart claims it wasn't that bigger deal, but Amanda gets the impression they are quite loyal friends. They decide to go for another round of drinks, and Flick suggests Amanda orders it in German. Flick advises her to ask for 'drei lager bitter', but it just gets Flick and Stu joking about if the barman would know if they were after lager or bitter. Watching the two of them laugh, Amanda leaves.
Karl is trying to tidy up the clothes laid out on the sofa, but Libby tells him to stop. He's still keen for her to come home, but she insists that she is home; in her home, with her baby. She tells him he can't make her do anything, and he admits he can't, so sits on the sofa with her and they sit in silence.
