Lou's Place - Night
Lou and Rosie have come into his office to talk privately about her transfer. He didn't know that the 'big news' was going to be the transfer and that the bishop seemed to think you would be pleased. Lou realises that the bishop is a sly old goat, he knew that Lou would pass on what he said to Rosie to butter her up. Rosie isn't so sure, and starts saying positive things about where she has to go but she still doesn't want to go there. Lou asks if she will fight it but she doesn't know, she has no say in the matter.
Dee's looking in the mirror looking at her nose when there is a knock at the door. She looks through the window to see Max and Boyd so she grabs some tape to put or her nose and then goes to answer it. Max and Boyd have come over to see how she is and to bring her some flowers. She says they're lovely she just wishes she could smell them. She explains to them why she can't smell, and that it has it's advantages at times. Max is sorry to hear this and offers to help is there is anything... she assures him all she needs to do is rest. He gets the hint so he and Boyd leave.
Michelle comes in and sits across from Tahnee, and apologises for what she said. She hopes that her grandpa will be okay. She apologises again but Tahnee doesn't blame Michelle for what she thought, most of her exfriends would've thought the same thing. Michelle asks what Tahnee is going to write for her report because she spend most of the day with her grandfather. Tahnee doesn't thin Michelle really gives a damn but she does and besides, their stories have to match. Tahnee doesn't really care about it so Michelle lets it all slide off her shoulders, inviting her over so they can do the report together. Tahnee doesn't know... you would think she would know.
Outside the Coffee Shop Chloe Lambert is having an Asthma attack. Luckily Darcy is on the scene and gives her an Asthma inhaler. When she is feeling better so wants to check her out but she's already late for a meeting. He insists that she be checked out so she finally agrees to see a doctor the next day. After exchanging names she runs off to her meeting. She stops herself and walks.
Tahnee arrives, asking if Michelle still wants to do this. She does so Tahnee comes inside. Michelle asks if she wants to read through her notes, Tahnee says she will and hands over her report. Michelle asks out of the blue how could Tahnee do what she did, if she was a real friend she wouldn't do those things. Tahnee asks if she wants the truth. Of course she does! Well when Tahnee for saw Conner she thought "That's mine, I want that." She couldn't believe he was with Michelle when she found out and tried every trick in the book to get him to notice her. She tried putting Michelle off Conner, she tried putting him off her. She tried getting Michelle's sympathy and his but in the end she decided that if she couldn't have Conner she would make sure Michelle damn well couldn't either. Looking back she realises that her and Conner could've been the best friends she ever had. Tahnee's not asking Michelle to forgive her because she wouldn't forgive herself. She leaves, saying she won't bother with the report.
Dee, who is looking fine without her nose taped, has ordered some take away from Harry. She asks if he isn't working in the pub today and he answers that he isn't now that Max is there. Dee admits she felt very guilty buying wine from him, apparently all of the street did. Between Harold and Dee he suspects that the fact he didn't like to sell alcohol is the reason why Lou doesn't want him to help. Guess who's walked in? Max, ordering a coffee. He greets Dee and does a double take and the missing tape from her nose and that her nose looks almost back to normal. She explains that she's leaving it out in the air, her doctor recommended it might be best for her to leave the bandage off for a while. Of course all the damage is internal so it will take a while before she gets her sense of smell. Max says he's sorry again, she tells him it could happen to anybody... especially those who play cricket around a tiny cul de sac. She leaves Max to puzzle over that one.
Rosie's explaining to Boyd that they will be able to see her on school holidays. She asks where Summer is and Boyd tells her that she's in her room, crying. Rosie tells him that it's okay to be upset when Max walks in, asking if when you lose your sense of smell you lose your sense of taste. He rummages around the desk drawer and calls to Boyd that he thinks someone's been pulling their leg. Rosie finally tells him that she has been transferred. Max takes it pretty well, and asks if Summer knows. Rosie informs him that she does and she isn't too happy... she sees that Max isn't either and tells him to cheer up.
Chloe comes in, wanting to speak with Darcy. He asks how's she's feeling and she's fine, just thanking him. He didn't think that rushing back to work was such a good idea. She assures him that she can look after herself but he doesn't think she can, not after what he witnessed earlier. There isn't many people she would let get away with that comment, but she will. They say goodbye but before Chloe leaves she turns back to Darcy and ask if he's currently unattached. Jeeze that's a bit forward don't you think? He laughs and says that yes he is. All she says to that is good and walks off. Odd. Very odd.
Harold's making dinner, talking to Lou about how he saw Libby in the street earlier. Lou thinks she better start thinking about the future but Harold reckons she's just living one day at a time at the moment. Harold asks how Lou is after hearing about Rosie's transfer, when he doesn't answer Harold apologises thinking he must've been devastated. Lou wasn't happy about it but it might not be so bad. He thinks he's come up with a solution. Once he's sold the pub and sorted out what to do with the garage there's nothing to stop him moving with her. Harold looks a bit upset by this. Lou goes on to say that without Drew he thinks it would be best to sell up the garage, and that Libby would agree.
Boyd's going for a ride on his scooter leaving Max and Rosie to fold the washing and talk about the fact Summer is staying in her room. She's going to miss them all, and asks if Max is alright. He is, things will be haywire for a while but they'll adapt. Rosie feels as though they've connected and that she would understand if he is disappointed. He admits that it's been wonderful having her around. She doesn't want to go but Max thinks that's irrelevant, she's going to go anyway.
In this everlasting night Michelle is chatting away to her friends when Tahnee walks in and up to the counter. Michelle excuses herself and joins her, asking if she wants to come sit with her. Tahnee thinks she has to be kidding, it's obvious Michelle's mates don't want her there. Michelle goes back to her table and Tahenne picks up her take away and leaves as Darcy orders himself something while his little stalker follows. Phewph! Chloe and Darcy talk about work, walking over to a table nearby. Now they talk about their social lives, Chloe's in non existent and Darcy's is pretty much the same at the moment. He asks why she wants to know. She just... wants to know. Also she wanted to tell him she has made an appointment to see her doctor the next day. Now she offers him tickets to The Graduate with a friend. I think she means her - oh boy. He'd really like to but after the spot of trouble he's been in lately he would probably have to go alone. She thinks her husband wouldn't be interested so she would have to go alone too... now she finally gets her point out by asking if he wants to join forces. He says that would leave him with a spare ticket and she rips it up. Err.
Dee's on the phone telling Toadie on the other end of the line about her little guilt trip on Max and that she feels bad about it... but she deserves a bit of fun. Tomorrow she's going to let Max off the hook. Someone knocks at the door so she gets off the phone and answers it. It's Max, giving her some chocolates and a gourmet foods voucher. She can't accept it but Max insists she does, that she has been through enough pain because of his carelessness. And if she was a really unforgiving neighbour she would've really made him suffer. She goes to tell him... but... she can't and thanks him. Max thinks she's sounding better already, less stuffy. He leaves Dee to feel guilty as.
Lou and Rosie are having some wine on Harry's couch. Rosie thinks Lou's plan is a great idea and it gives her something to look forward too. They go in for the old person's kiss (ewwy) and Rosie says there is only one thing; his thoughts on the living arrangements. Lou's heard that the people up there live an alternative lifestyle so they won't turn heads but Rosie tells him the clergy look down on that. Harold sneaks in and starts listening in as they talk about what they are looking forward too. Lou and Rosie toast to their new life and Harold doesn't look happy at all.
Dee's come over! She's come to thank him for the gourmet meal but she can't accept it. Max insists she can, he'd feel better if she took it. She said it's not that bad but Max keeps it up, saying it's a peace offering. She backs down and goes back home.
Harold, Lou and Rosie are cooking dinner in this everlasting night. Is it ever going to be day? Lou needs some pineapple, he doesn't want Harold's tinned rubbish so he's going to the shop. Now that Harold and Rosie are alone Harry wants to speak his mind. She's an invaluable asset to the community and if she left it would leave a gaping hole. The community can't and won't let her go. Knows that's like an emotional guilt trip but it's true. He is going to do everything in his power to fight the archbishop's decision.
