Connor thinking about Serena.
Paul kicking Lou out.
Sindi suggesting the boys combine their bucks and her hen's nights.
Connor and Toadie come in and tell Stuart the plan for the buck's night and the "highlight" of the night is at 9pm with a performance by an exotic dancer, which Stuart is looking forward to immensely almost as much as Connor and Toadie and they "celebrate" when Sindi comes home asking what they are up to. Thinking quickly, Toadie says they're practicing for wresting!

Lou is moaning to Harold about Paul chucking him out even though he was the only one in the street who stood up for Paul when everyone was turning against him. Max comes in and mentions that Izzy has gone AWOL just as they've got a busy day lined up. Lou mentions that it isn't the first time she's done this and Harold adds that Izzy has a lot on her plate at the moment but Max just wishes she'd sort it out in her own time.
Serena asks David for his advice on which type of bikinis to get for the shop when Lil leaves saying she'll be late home before leaving after kissing David goodbye. Serena tells her dad that Ramsay Street is going to be hell until Paul "crawls up and dies!" David reminds Serena that it is a free world and Paul can live where he likes and that this family is strong.
Sindi is excited at the prospect of getting married and asks him if he is disappointed at not having a lively bucks night. Stuart tells her he prefers what is being organised - a few quiet beers with the boys, very low key. Sindi however grabs the piece of paper from his back pocket that Toadie gave him earlier with all the details on it. He tries to say it is his wish list but once Sindi reads it, she gets upset and says he lied to her and why. He puts the blame firmly onto Connor and Toadie saying they twisted his arm but Sindi doesn't quite believe him.

Toadie is running over the nitty-gritty details of the buck's night but Connor is wistfully looking at Serena and Toadie eventually notices why he's not been paying attention.
TOADIE: Right. Well it must be the school uniform 'cos I'm sure the conversation isn't that scintillating.
Connor now tries to feign his innocence, but Toadie is onto him. Serena comes over on the pretence of asking if she is working that day before leaving after he confirms when she is working.
TOADIE: She's seventeen going on twelve. What are you going to do, sip milkshakes with her and help her with her homework?
Connor tries to say there is nothing going on between him and Serena, when Toadie spots Lucy coming into TGS and reminds him what sort of person he should be going after, including the fact she is old enough to vote! Toadie then suggests that he asks Lucy out and he says he will but stalls on the asking front.
Stuart is pleading with Sindi telling her that a bucks night is tradition and she reminds him so is stuffing a turkey but to hire an exotic dancer is "just plain offensive". Stuart asks if that isn't a bit hypocritical given she used to be one then adds that he is doing it for the boys. Sindi then pipes up and tells him to marry them instead! Stuart asks her why she is so against it and she says that she's seen what goes on at these nights but Stuart pleads his and his friend's innocence and firmly tells her that he'll make them behave. Sindi relents but tells him that she is still concerned.

Sindi catches up with Connor and Toadie and lays down the law to them - no strippers but they plead their case and blame Stuart.
SINDI: Right. Well. If you children insist on getting your kicks out of nuddy runs or tying Stuart to a telephone booth or any other forms of public humiliation so be it. But there will be no dancers, there will be no strippers, there will be no titillation of any kind.
Connor sarcastically says that maybe they should cancel the whole thing but Toadie goes on the offensive by asking her how she could deny Stuart his last right of passage as a single man. Sindi then relents as long as there is nothing inappropriate or they will regret it for the rest of their lives!
Paul arrives to teach and Serena accosts him telling him he isn't welcome here or in Ramsay Street given what he has done. She adds that they were fine before he came along and will be when he leaves, preferably soon! Paul firmly tells her that even though she has personal problems, if she speaks to him rudely again, she'll be on detentions forever more. He also tells her that he has ties with Ramsay Street that go back over 30 years and he is going to make amends for what he has done. Serena isn't happy, even though Paul says that she must be now her parents are reunited. She reminds him that they wouldn't have been apart in the first place if it weren't for him! Paul again firmly tells her he isn't budging and to get used to it.
Toadie has done the books and tells Connor that him and his girlfriend have turned the business around and it is now running in the black and the business can stay open. They eventually get round to talking about the bucks night and Connor is scared he gets the same treatment as Yorick from Sindi if they hire a stripper. Toadie has a plan though; convincing Sindi there is no exotic dancer! As they're celebrating Toadie's plan, two customers leave the shop as Serena comes to start her shift and she gives them short shrift! Connor goes to give her comforting words her as she gets ready for work and Toadie asks if he should leave them alone! Connor reaffirms that they are only work colleagues and Toadie gives him some useful advice - look but don't touch!
Lou is having trouble getting somewhere to stay but isn't giving up hope yet. Harold tells him to book a room at Lassiters just in case but Lou rejects that as it means giving Paul his money. Harold comes up with another suggestion - his garage once he's cleared the junk out of it first. Lou says he'll be fine but Harold mentioning camp beds has given Lou an idea - joining Doug and Phil on their fishing trip. Harold thinks it is a great idea and they discuss the arrangements for when Lou is away. Max comes over to see if they want menu's and Lou comments that he looks tired. Max still can't get hold of Izzy and comments that she'll come back when she thinks everyone's anger has turned into sympathy.
Serena is having a bad day at work and Connor tries to cheer her up although she isn't impressed with his attempts. Noticing someone coming into the shop, she tells Connor that they shoplifted last week and Connor says they won't be this week. He goes over and talks to her and when Serena says she wants to call the police he tells her that he has a plan.

As David goes to put something aside for their dinner, Lil spots Paul standing at the counter. She tells him that she is working things out with David and there is nothing he can do to disrupt that. Paul plays it cool and she tells him that only some of his lies have come out and it is only a matter of time before the rest come out too. He then tells her that she still has feelings for him and that he still loves her. Lil is having none of it and David comes back and tells him to clear off too and adds that they don't want his business either. When Paul leaves, Lil apologies for what Paul said and David accepts it until they hug and we see the look on his face.
Connor decides it is time to confront the customer and stops her from leaving and tells her that she is the 1000th customer and she gets a free bikini as a prize. The customer just wants to get out of the shop and so rejects his offer but he insists and wants a photo of the winner too - for promotional reasons. Serena takes her bag as Connor snaps away and notices a stolen bikini in the bag. They let her leave after retaining the bikini and tell her that the police will probably be paying her a visit soon. Connor tells Serena to go home and he'll lock up and as she leaves, he looks wistfully at her.
Serena is daydreaming (wonder who about ) when Lil tries to ask her questions about dinner. After getting little response, she asks her who he is that is filling her head. Eventually she says there is someone but doesn't say a name but he is older. Lil isn't happy at this fact given what happened in the past but Serena says she doesn't think anything will happen anyway and admits it is a crush. Lil tells her that she isn't angry, she just wants her to be careful. Serena suddenly says "like you were" before adding that he isn't married! Lil says that although she deserved those comments they aren't helpful. Serena sarcastically says she isn't out of her depth and adds that Lil would be the last person she'd go to for romantic advice!
Toadie comes off the phone and confirms that he has cancelled the exotic dancer. He says that they will now just be going out for a quiet drink and for entertainment they will go to the roller disco instead! The boys head out and Sindi picks up the phone and his the redial button to see who Toadie to and isn't impressed to hear the talking clock!
The buck's night is in progress with Connor recording it. Stuart is worried about having too much beer in advance of going to the roller rink when Connor and Toadie let them in on their secret - they ain't going to the roller rink and that their original plans are still on.
Paul comes home to a dark house and as he turns the light on the place is all smashed up with "YOU ARE SCUM! GET OUT!" written on the wall.
