Robbie D kissing Nina at a press shoot.
Susan confessing to Lyn that she cannot be godmother to the baby.
Susan comes into the salon and asks Lyn if she can have a fringe trim-only if she can be fitted in of course. Susan looks pretty nervous. Lyn replies coldly it shouldn't be a problem and asks her to take a seat. She sits in the hairdressing chair and reminds Lyn that she can pass her to another hairdresser if she likes. Lyn takes out her hair and says that the sooner they start the sooner they can leave. Susan looks hurt, but then recovers and says that she may need the full treatment for her hair- full trim, wash, treatment, everything. Lyn looks bewildered.
Nina and her agent Melody are having dinner in the pub. She pleads to Melody to recover the pictures of Robbie D and her kissing before they get printed, because Jack didn't know that she would be attending. Melody shrugs and says it's money in the bank, and if Jack didn't know... that's her own fault. She then lectures Nina about how much she wanted a profile and how many teenagers would give an arm to be on the receiving end with Robbie D, but Nina interrupts admitting it is not the profile she wants and will not pretend to be an item with Robbie.
Boyd is washing cars with the hose, and is pretending to be a cop. One of Lou's customers interrupts him and asks if it is ok to pick up her car. He offers to get her the keys, but lays eyes on a red mustang in the garage.
Valda notices Joe in the pub and heads back to the storeroom. Lou notices and tells her that it is his pub, not Joe's. He also reminds her that Erinsborough is her home, so she shouldn't feel as though she needs to hide. Valda smiles at Lou and approaches Joe. She asks how he and Lyn are doing. Joe looks a bit shocked, but admits that Lyn isn't too good. He asks Valda how she's doing, and she looks pleased he is taking an interest.
Summer shows Steph the cake she made for her best friend Lisa, but she also confesses that it is a test to see whether she can resist. Max then comes in with the shirt he bought for Steph's reunion. When he says to her that he is looking forward to her reunion, she laughs and kisses him implying he's a bad liar and that he would rather stick pins in his eyes. Max smiles and gives her a hug.
Jack and Nina are at the coffee shop, and he tells her not to apologize. She sighs, Melody has been booking heaps of interviews for her, and now the venues are getting bigger. Jack then asks how the day went with her and her mother. Nina looks confused for a moment, but then she says that it was fine and changes the subject.
Lyn is brushing Susan's hair, looking like she rather do anything else. Susan randomly mentions that her mother used to bush her hair like this, and that she must have the same touch. Lyn begins to cry, and she jumps out of the chair and gives Lyn a hug. Susan asks what's wrong, and Lyn looks at her- admitting she needs a friend. Susan looks shocked, but then continues to hug Lyn.
Joe is reading the paper when Jack comes home and asks where Lyn is. Joe begins to look worried and offers to ring the salon, but Jack advises him against it saying that clients are probably holding her up. Jack then reminds Joe that the garage needs cleaning, and he needs to do it. The conversation turns to music and they end up debating about whether Joe really has old fashion tastes.
Lyn tells Susan the truth about Valda, leaving Susan astonished. Lyn begins to sound bitter with Valda, but Susan reminds her that she was only young when she had Lyn, so maybe it wasn't Valda's choice to make. Lyn quickly glares at Susan, so Susan continues that it doesn't excuse Valda for what she did, but she has to remember that Lyn wasn't completely given away. Lyn shakes her head, Valda has had over 40 years to say something, but now it's to late. Lyn smiles and says that she missed having Susan around. Susan grins and says she feels that way too.
Max is leaving to pick up Steph to take her to the reunion. Valda asks how Steph is but Max interrupts her saying that he will not get involved, and the problem she has is between her and the Scully's. Lou pulls him aside and asks if that was necessary, but Max reminds him that his loyalty lies with Steph and no one else.
Summer looks at her cake, trying not to eat it. She accidentally gets cream on her, and she licks it off. That leads to picking some marshmallows off the cake. In the end she gives in and cuts herself a slice.
Boyd takes the keys to the mustang and begins to look at it. He heads for the driver's door and sits in the front, pretending to drive. He then puts the keys in the ignition and starts the car up. The mustang stalls giving him a hell of a fright.
Max walks into the kitchen finding Summer alone with a half-eaten cake. She runs past him yelling she is going to be sick.
Lyn and Susan are back at the Kennedy place, and Lyn says that it is great to have someone to talk to again. Karl then comes home with some Chinese food, and notices Lyn sitting there. Karl greets her and looks at Susan who's smiling. She informs him that the 'cat fight' is over, thanks him for dinner, and asks him to get changed. He takes the hint and makes himself scarce, and Lyn says that she better be going. She considers asking Susan to keep it a secret about Valda, but then changes her mind saying that there is no point in creating another secret.
Steph and Max are getting ready for the reunion. Steph asks Summer if she is feeling better. Summer hangs her head and says that she must accept god's punishment, for she has sinned. Max groans and looks like he's going to bang his head against a brick wall when Boyd comes home. Steph feels the tension, and says that it's a nice shirt Boyd's wearing, and asks if it's new. Max looks at him and says that he has never seen it before, and Boyd just shrugs and admits it's easy to shoplift- as long as you know where the cameras are. Max asks him if they can talk about it later, but Summer interrupts saying Boyd has a job at the garage, and isn't shoplifting. Max sighs, and asks Boyd why didn't he just say so. Boyd shrugs again and replies why didn't you ask?
Harold is practicing his commercial in front of Valda and Lou and they both look like they will fall asleep at any moment.
When Lyn heads back to the Scully's, Joe admits he was worried and tried calling the salon- but no one answered. Lyn seems in a much better mood about everything, especially about making up with Susan- and apologizes about everything that has happened. When Joe suggest that she is ready to talk to Valda again she says it's not coming to that, and excuses herself so she can have a lie down.
Harold has gained a lot more confidence with his ad, and has certainly spiced it up. 'The coffee shop is enough to... make your hair curl. Valda and Lou are laughing, and Lou admits that late night TV wont know what hit it.
Summer is on the phone to Lisa telling her that she failed the famine. Lisa must have asked about whether she is still collecting, because Summer said she would- because it's for charity. Boyd says that he is going out, and heads for the door. Summer quickly ends her conversation with Lisa and asks Boyd where he is going. He tells her to mind her own business and Summer reminds him that Max will be upset if he finds out he's left her alone again. Boyd looks at her, shrugs, and tells her that he won't find out. He leaves, and Summer stands in the doorway and sighs.
Boyd goes to the garage with a torch. He finds the keys for the red mustang and sits in the driver's seat. He looks at the keys and begins to look guilty.
