Harold's dating agency contact, Michelle tells Lyn she's going to New York. Kev finds Angie's note
Toadie and Kev are in the pub. Kev tells Toadie to get another beer, but Toadie says he has no money. Kev says neither does he, any more.
Max and Summer are home after a movie. She tries to convince him that she enjoyed it and he tries to make conversation about the popcorn, but she's just quietly distracted. He suggests they'll go and see something different every week. As he walks away, he throws a stuffed toy at her, making a squealing noise. She 'rolls her eyes' and goes back to reading her magazine.
In the morning, Susan meets Libby in the Coffee Shop, saying she hadn't heard her leave early. She mentions that she's going in to the Uni library and 'meet Peter for coffee'. She sees that Libby's negative about the idea and insists he's just a friend, but admits she doesn't have coffee with other friends.
Libby goes on to say that Karl's probably hoping that they'll move in together when he gets back. She replies that at the moment she hopes more than anything that she and Karl will live happily ever after. At the moment they're just rediscovering each other and it's wonderful, but she doesn't know what will happen next. Libby suggests that if they both feel the same way, she should move back in, but Susan reiterates that it has to be one step at a time for her, as that's all she knows.
Steph calls on Max to say that her friend has a pony club week at the Lassiter's complex and she thought Summer might like to go. He takes offence at first and says he's been doing this father thing for a long time-she just replies that she thought he'd like to know in advance and mentions that he might need to book, so he softens and thanks her. He's still a bit distant so she asks him not to let the fact that he doesn't like her make Summer miss out on something she'd enjoy. He says they've had differences but it doesn't mean he doesn't like her, but she doesn't seem convinced, saying world peace doesn't depend on it anyway.
Harold and Isadora Gunn are preparing to make a video for the dating agency. He's very nervous, especially when she suggests he take the glasses off. He can't even find the direction to look in until she waves, so the glasses go back on. He has a lot of trouble holding the identification card up ad when she asks him for his proudest moment is completely stumped, just continues to bumble around.
Libby talks to Steph about Susan and the professor, saying it's obvious he like her. She admits that she thought it was nice until he 'started to hone in' on her mother. Steph feels he might want to be friends says it doesn't mean something's going to happen-but Libby thinks she must know something might happen and may be wondering what it's like to see someone else.
STEPH: Men and women can just be friends - look at me and Drew. I never stopped loving Drew. I have to tell you this now because it's been eating at me ever since the funeral.
LIBBY: No, it's OK.
STEPH: No, I have to say it. But Drew-he was only ever just my friend, you know? And it was always that way because he loved you, not me. And it wouldn't have made any difference what I said or did.
LIBBY: You don't have to say this.
STEPH: I think you knew how I felt, deep down - we all knew. I tried so hard to make myself stop but it just never went away completely.
LIBBY: Hey, I understand-I was married to the guy - he's just lovable.
STEPH: I'm sorry.
LIBBY: There's no need to be. You're such a good person. That's why I knew, that no matter what, you would never do anything to hurt me and Drew.
STEPH: Well, he never gave me the chance.
LIBBY: Well even if he did, you wouldn't have taken it. I know you, that's why we're still friends.
STEPH: I just wish I had said this years ago, you've just made me feel so much better.
LIBBY: Yeah, that's why you're the only one who really understands how I'm feeling right now-who knows how big this hole in my chest is. So you have to promise that you will help make sure that we never forget him - all those little things, all those little moments.
They hug as Steph promises.
Toadie greets Kev, who's shuffling into the room with 'You look like hell'. Kev insists he wants to go back to bed, won't eat and doesn't even want a cup of tea. Angie's voice is heard telling him to do as he's told and get back in. He points out she has a nerve returning after what she did, but she replies he did it too. He answers that he came back-so did she. He taunts her with 'it's too late, so she retaliates by saying that she came back to see her son, not him and as he turns to go away, Toadie lifts him bodily and puts him back to face her. He says that he's not going through it again and they are to talk to one another, be honest for a change NOW!
Harold's now working from a script and is unbelievably stilted, so doesn't want to go on. 'Dora's' not impressed either but persuades him to give it one more try. This time it's an 'action' version with Harold talking his tuba (to her amusement- 'There's nothing like the old oompah oompah to get you started') and lifting it to reveal vegetables so he can go on to talk about food, especially his 'turnip surprise'.
Toadie mediates between his parents, asking Kev why he came back.
'Oh well, maybe I missed her'.
She says she was hurt that he only romanced her so he could get the money. When she hesitates to answer why she came back, Kev suggests she couldn't spend the money without her. She roars 'Not spend it-I spent the lot and enjoyed every minute of it!'
Kev starts to call her names, but Toadie takes him to outside and shows him an enormous camping-bus vehicle.
Susan meets Libby again and each apologises for the previous encounter. Libby feels she as out of order and Susan says she should have realised that Libby's been through the mill and now she's thought about it, she did want to find out what it was like to go out with another man. She found out he was nice, but a bit boring, not a patch on her dad and not as good looking.
Libby apologises for pushing them together, but Susan replies that it's OK, she's remembering more and more things every day and feeling more and more like Libby's mum. Just then Ben vomits a little and as Libby cleans it up she sees blood in it so Susan calms her and suggests they go to the hospital.
Kev says it's all right but not what he'd have bought, to which Angie says it's Ok, she can travel around Australia on her own. It's what they always talked about doing, before they stopped talking and started yelling.
ANGIE: Well, what do you say, you old coot?
KEV: Well that depends.
ANGIE: On what?
KEV: On who gets to drive.
Big hug, happy Toadie.
Steph is at the Pony Club when she spots Summer on her own and looking a bit down. She goes to talk to her and asks if she wants to help with the grooming. It doesn't sound as though Max is planning to take her.
Libby is very anxious because of the wait. Martin Cook comes out and reassures her they'll be seen soon.
Steph has Summer walking round on a pony. They're obviously enjoying themselves when Max comes down the steps and sees them from the distance. He looks apprehensive at first then smiles and leaves without them seeing him.
At home, Rosie tells him she doesn't understand why he's so worried and he needs to look at why he has a problem with Steph. Steph and Summer clearly like one another and he should think about why Summer's drawn to a friendship with an older woman, having lost her mother. He should just let the friendship develop.
Susan and Libby come out with Martin Cook who has cleared Ben. The blood was from a cut. Libby apologises for being so short-fused. Libby's very upset still, because of her reaction.LIBBY: I can't do this on my own, Mum. You know, Drew was always so good at this stuff; he always stayed calm. I don't want to do this without him, Mum, I need him.
SUSAN: I know, I know. It will get easier, Lib, I promise.
LIBBY: I don't want it to get easier-I want him. I miss him so much. I don't want to do this alone, Mum.
SUSAN: Oh Lib, I promise you, no matter what happens, I will always be here for you. You will never ever be alone.
Screen freezes on them smiling at one another, Ben on Susan's knee.
