- Dylan is interviewed at the police station
- Janelle tells Kim he needs to be there for the kids
- Stu telling Paul thy have to consider that Izzy is the target
Janae is on hold on the phone, and Janelle is watching out the window for Kim. She hopes he hasn't done a runner, but Janae says they don't need him anyway. Janelle just thought he might stick around a bit longer this time...
Toadie wants to hear Stingray and Dylan's story again - it is good practice for the prosecution. Silent Bob, the random extra policeman, brings the phone in to Stingray. Turns out it is Stingray's 18th, and Janelle and Janae have rung with birthday wishes. Including this one...
*puts on singing voice*
"It's a special day for Scotty, another year's gone by. And coz he's old and ugly, we're gonna make him cry! How many? 18!!!"
Dylan dishes out the birthday punches on behalf of the other Timmins'. Janelle tells Stingray they love him and he'll be out of there soon. She gets all emotional, and Janae wishes him a final happy birthday before hanging up. Silent Bob takes the phone away as Toadie presents Stingray with a rum and raisin cupcake with a candle in it - they laugh that his first legal 'drink' was made by Harold.
STINGRAY: You can't get anymore Ramsay Street than that!
Paul and Elle are sitting with Izzy, and Paul says that this being a family man thing is 'bloody hard work!' Ned looks on from outside the door, as Elle and Izzy tell Paul they need him there. They'll pull through this if they stick together.
Lou gets off the phone from Lil's relatives in WA and tells Harold that Svetlanka is under sedation - she's not coping with the news. Luka is holding up with the support of his parents. Lou says that Svetty won't be coming to the memorial; she hasn't left her bed, but Harold hasn't even thought about it yet. He supposes he should stop clinging onto hope and get on with it. Lou recommends they remember the good times and get on with the business of living. It's what David, Lil and Serena would have wanted. Harold reflects that after everything they have been through this year, now they are all together forever.
Toadie tells the boys that the jury like stories, and if theirs don't match the prosecution there is reasonable doubt right there, which is good. Dylan is over all the legal talk, and says it is all beating around the bush - he wants to know what will happen, worst case scenario. Toadie tries to avoid the question, saying if they create reasonable doubt he should be able to get one or both of them off...but Dylan wants to know what they are looking at. Toadie gives in. They are facing a ten year stretch...each.
Janae and Janelle are finishing dinner as Kim turns up - turns out he's got himself a job as a jackhammer technician, cash in hand. He keeps $20 of the money and gives the rest to Janelle, who takes it but continues on her rant. Nothing Kim can do is good enough - he went to buy Scott a birthday present but Janelle says he has one every year, why has he never bothered before? She accuses Kim of giving up hope on the boys already, but Kim says he is just being realistic. Janelle snarls at him to put his money toward a QC instead, that's what the boys really need. Kim says he'll see her in court tomorrow.
Elle and Paul come out of the room (which is guarded by two police-persons), and are greeted by Ned. He offers to look after Elle for Paul at his house for a while, until things calm down. Paul goes all protective-father on him, firing the twenty questions and putting him under suspicion for pretty much everything. Ned is all 'dude...why would I want to hurt you?' Paul realises the Wiggles skivvy stress is affecting his head, and agrees to leave Elle with Ned, just as long as Ned remembers Elle is the most precious thing in his life.
Janae brings Kim out a plate of dinner. She goes to leave but he tells her to stay for a bit. He'll eat while she fills him in on the news.
Dylan is worried about Stingray (who is asleep on the chairs) - he doesn't think he can survive in prison. Toadie says he will do is best to get the both off, but if he's honest, it's a long shot. Dylan says while they are being honest, the good wishes he passed on from Sky earlier, were they real? Toadie admits he was just trying to keep their spirits up. Dylan says Toadie looks tired, and he says he hasn't had a good nights' sleep in ages. He can't stop thinking about Connor. Dylan looks troubled.
Janae wants to know why Kim didn't just take his parent's money and let them live on easy street. Kim explains it wasn't that simple - if he took the money knowing how his parents felt about Janelle, he would feel like he was being dishonourable to her. Janae still doesn't know why he didn't hang around when they were kids. Kim says that he wasn't good enough for Janelle. He thought it would be less disruptive for them if he wasn't there. Janae thinks that's laughable, considering everything they went through at school - people thought they were trash. Kim says he hated school too - it's rough on everyone, but Janae thinks it would have been easy on him because he went to a posh school. Kim says that doesn't mean he had it easy. He had to find his own way in life, and so should Janae - catch her own wave. Janae tells him to spare her the hippy-trip - they need money to get Dylan and Scotty out of jail, but she guesses they'll have to sort it out o their own - again.
Stingray wakes up and wants to know what's going on. Dylan tells him Toadie's gone for a leak, and to go back to sleep. Stingray says Dylan looks like he could do with a sleep himself. Dylan says secrets have a way of catching up with you...Connor? Stingray asks. Dylan tells Stinger about Toadie, and how he doesn't know what to do - Connor has his reasons for running, but Stingray doesn't think Connor's mates should have to suffer anymore - look what he did to Sky...
Toadie comes back and Dylan says he has something to tell him, on two conditions - it doesn't leave the room, and he won't get mad. Toadie says just to tell him, and so Dylan blurts it out - Connor's alive.
Toadie disobeys condition #2, and flies of the handle. What Connor and Dylan have done is stupid and selfish - Toadie doesn't care how much Connor just wanted to disappear - he had to tell his Mum he was dead! Dylan says Connor is a good bloke, but Toadie already knows that.
DYLAN: He saved my life out there in the bush! He's been through hell!
TOADIE: What? And I haven't? I'll see you in court.
Ned and Elle set up the inflatable mattress, as Ned laments that Connors room is free, but they don't really want to use it. Elle understands, but she still thinks she should take the couch and he should have the mattress. Ned says he is fine (despite the fact that he is squished up like a big ... squished up thing...). Ned goes to answer the door - it's Harold who has come with details of the Bishop's memorial. Toadie comes home and Harold invites him too. Toad says he wouldn't miss it for the world, and takes a wad of money out of the draw. He says that they were saving it for Connor's memorial, but he would rather the Salvo's had it instead. Toadie invites Harold to stay for a cuppa, and he goes into the kitchen. Looking up at the ceiling, he tells Connor to 'stop being an idiot, and just come home!'
Paul hop skips and jumps through the waiting area, as he has spied Izzy's 24-hour-police-guarded-door is now a non-24-hour-police-guarded-door. He's all 'argh blah unprofessional argh blah we're left alone' but Izzy is calm about it. Speak of the devil, the police arrive back at the door with coffee. 'Nice of you to join us' shouts Paul, and they just nod and smile. How we love our random extras. Izzy says they are allowed to get a coffee, but Paul doesn't care - while they went to get their caffeine fix, he and Izzy were in danger! Izzy promises him they are going to make it through this - everything is ok.
Ned and Elle are sleeping on the blow up mattress top-to-toe. Only Elle can't sleep, so she starts tickling Ned's head with her toes. He mutters something about sheepdogs, before waking up properly.
NED: Can't sleep?
ELLE: Nope, any idea? (sits up)
NED: Try going through the numbers of your favourite footy players. Usually works for me. (rolls over and goes back to sleep)
ELLE: *sighs and looks suitably disgruntled*
Harold and Lou unload flowers for the memorial service, while Janelle brings a packed lunch out to Kim, in her dressing gown and slippers.
KIM: Lookin' good!
JANELLE: Oh turn it up! I'm wearin' a cheap dressing gown I've had for 14 years...and if you look closely enough you'll see some of Bree's baby vomit on it!
KIM: Still gorgeous from were I'm standing...
Janelle says the lunch is just leftovers, nothing to get excited about. Kim still thinks it was nice of her. She reminds him of the time of the court case, and he says he'll be there. Janelle says the boys need him today...in fact they all do. He promises he will be there, and Janae watches happily from the bushes.
Stingray jokes about how good they've scrubbed up for a couple of crims. Dylan wants him to talk serious fro a second. He wants to take the wrap for everything so Stingray gets off. Stingray thinks he is crazy, but Dylan says he isn't joking - he has to get up there and lie - blame it all on him...or they both go to jail.
