Kim quitting his job after telling Paul what he thinks of him.
Paul telling Harold he felt fear during his panic attack.
Elle hinting to Ned she should get the female lead part in the play since she already knows the role.
Ned and Elle are leaving to head to the audition. Elle is ever so keen and Ned is hinting that she should keep her feet on the ground as there may be more experienced people there but she is having none of it. Paul comes out and they turn down a lift to TCH and he walks carefully down the drive to check the coast is clear. As the Ned/Elle chat was going on, Harold has come out of his house, got into his car and reversed it down the driveway into the street.
The coast clear, so Paul heads to go into the car as Harold sits in the car with the engine running in the middle of the street. Harold suddenly hits the accelerator and goes full speed towards Paul and just as Paul is having a hairy canary, Harold slams on the breaks stopping extremely close to where Paul is standing. Realising what has just occurred, Harold quickly gets out of the car and profusely apologises to a stunned Paul saying that his foot slipped. Right! A shocked and stunned Paul accepts Harold reasoning but half collapses as he is about to leave for a meeting, so Harold gently guides him home.
Paul has recovered remarkably quickly as they head inside and Harold apologises to Izzy for what happened (his foot slipped) as Paul heads upstairs. Harold also tells Izzy that this is the second panic attack Paul has had, which irks Izzy off as she didn't know about the first one. He suggests that Paul perhaps didn't say anything because it might harm his normal self-confidence appearance.
The Community Hall
Elle is doing some last minute rehearsing with Ned but the look on Stinger and Sky's face (Stinger is recording it on his camcorder) as they watch suggests she isn't going to get a call from Andrew Lloyd-Webber soon especially after she accidentally knees Ned in the tender regions! Being polite, Ned tells her to keep fresh for the audition but she decides to do some individual work instead as Ned joins Sky and Stinger. He asks how can he politely tell her she is rubbish but Stinger instead does a spiel for his movie. Ned discovers that Sky has done dancing before (at Grease Monkey's) so he ropes her in to help Elle before Gino arrives. Elle is ever so pleased but Sky has her work cut out given they've only an hour before Gino arrives.
The General Store
Dylan thanks Stu for his role in getting the pair of them out of jail. They talk about what how Dylan is going to double the money Paul gave him and Stu reminds him he needs a permit to be a vendor and no he won't tell Dylan when they are due to visit so he can avoid buying one. Dylan leaves and Stu heads to the counter to pay for their drinks. Harold puzzles Stu when he goes off on one about temptation being put in front of Dylan and telling Stu to keep up the good fight.
The Community Hall
Sky is giving Elle instructions but she still having trouble getting it right. Sky drags Ned to where Stinger is still filming as Elle gets in some more practice. Ned tries to make excuses on Elle's behalf but Sky suggests that he tells Elle she is rubbish instead. They sit and watch as Ned goes back to Elle and are stunned to see Elle hug and kiss him after he talks to her.
STINGER (in a Chinese style accent): Man who dance with turkey often turn chicken.
Paul is making the excuse to someone on the phone that he couldn't come due to car trouble as he spots something on his CCTV monitor. Paul changes camera options and notices someone is heading in the back door. He starts to panic again as Izzy comes in with the washing. Paul then goes off on one over Izzy going outside and not telling him, so he forbids her to go outside without prior warning as we head into the commercial break.
Commercial break over, Izzy talks to Paul about his panic attacks and why he hadn't told her and suggests Karl could refer him to someone. Paul dismisses it instantly given it is Karl and says that 'they' have won given the way he is now living. Izzy tells him to get off the loser talk because he is staying and facing up to whoever is doing this to him. Paul thinks she is right and tells her that the police will soon catch whoever is doing it and the three of them still have each other but as they hug his face tells a different story.
Dylan is having a hard time finding someone willing to buy his mood rings even when he reduces his price form $2 to 50 cents. Stu approaches him and asks to see his vendors permit and Dylan tells him that he is giving up, so won't need one. Stu cheers him up though by buying four of them, giving Dylan is first $2.
The Community Hall
Dylan is trying to flog his mood rings to the performers but still isn't getting anywhere as Stinger and his trusty camera head over for a chat. Sky spots the rings and says she loves them as they spot Elle strutting away badly on stage. Dylan decides it is time for that old adage - it's cruel to be kind - "whoever is telling you you can dance is lying" and follows it up with a "you stink!" Elle tries to deny this, so Dylan asks for everyone in the hall to back them but everyone remains silent, so he apologises for telling her that the truth hurts since no-one else is having the guts to admit it even when put under the spot. As you can imagine Elle doesn't like what she's just heard and runs of the stage and out of the hall upset.
Dylan is now trying to make his fortune via the stock exchange (looking at share prices in the paper) as Stinger gives him a hard time for what he did to Elle. Sky comes off the phone and tells the guys that Gino wants her to be in the show. Dylan and Stinger burst out laughing as we head into the next commercial break.
Ned is trying to tell Elle why he kept quiet about her dancing and suggests going out for drinks as a way of apologising. Given she is Paul's daughter, Elle wants cocktails and they invite Paul to go with him. He turns down their offer and goes to give them some money to have a drink on him but they turn down the money and leave.
Izzy is telling Stu about how Paul is living in fear of his life. Stu says the investigation is top priority and Harold walks past just as Izzy is telling Stu that Paul will have a heart attack if things continue like they are. Izzy then warns Stu that she will sue the police if anything happens to Paul.
As Izzy reaches the bar, Harold asks if there is trouble, and she mentions that nobody seems to appreciate the seriousness of it all. Harold tries to reassure her that everyone is doing their best and she isn't exactly pleased to see Ned and Elle come into the bar. Izzy wants to go home and check on Paul since Ned and Elle don't seem to realise the seriousness of it all but Harold reminds her that there is nobody available to lock up. Izzy comes up with an alternative plan - asking Harold to check on Paul, which of course he is only too pleased to do.
Dylan and Stinger reminisce about Sky's dancing in Grease Monkey's as she tells them that she isn't going to appear in the play even if Gino says he'll cancel it if she doesn't agree. Dylan answers Sky's phone and discovers it is Gino and he tells him that Sky still says no before hanging up. Stinger appears to her better nature so Ned can be happy as Gino phones back again and hearing him in tears gets to her heart strings because she agrees to consider it...if Elle gets a role in the play too. Not sure if Gino has agreed or not because he's crying even louder apparently.
Harold raps on the door and Paul starts to get panicky again as he can't see anyone. As we head into another commercial break, it looks like Paul is suffering from a panic attack as Harold comes back into view.
Izzy is worried she hasn't heard anything and at a table Ned comes off the phone with news for Elle from Gino - she's got a part in the play...as the old gump tree which has an extremely small number of lines! Elle isn't exactly jumping for joy but Ned says that part is at the centre of the whole story.
Scarlet Bar/No. 22
Back at the bar, Izzy phones home, which makes Paul jump and he gets even more nervy as the knocking on the door continues. Paul doesn't know which one to answer and shouts out "who is it." He really freaks out as we hear the back door squeak open...and extremely cheery Harold marches in as Paul starts gasping for breath. Harold (ignoring Paul) is rabbitting on and after cancelling the ringing phone, he heads through the living room to open the front door (to let the air in), opens the curtains and turns off the CCTV monitor. Paul is really losing it now and as he continues to gasp for breath, he clutches at his chest as he collapses backwards onto the chair.
HAROLD: Oh Paul. Dear oh dear.
