- Connor's letter from Harold
- Elle tells Sky she is ok with her and Ned kissing in the play but warns her: Hands to herself!
- Paul forbids Izzy to leave the house without permission
Paul acts like a scared hermit, and Izzy and Elle discuss his hermit-like ways. They are worried about him, and think maybe he should talk to someone. Ned asks if there is anyway he can help, but Paul overhears and flies off the handle. He doesn't want ANY of their help.
Stingray films as Dylan congratulates Sky for getting into Art School. In random news, Stinger has a peg on his ear. Sky is flat out because Connor has phoned in sick - apparently Toadie battered him! She just doesn't have time to talk. Dylan asks quickly about suppliers for bread for his hot dog cart, but then bids Sky farewell, telling her he'll see her at rehearsals. Sky's all Woah Horsey! Rewind! That quickly evolves into Lame Excuses Ahoy, and she eventually talks Dylan out of it. As he and Stingray leave, Lou arrives home from panto comes in, home from visiting Lolly.
STINGRAY: Hey! You're back!
LOU: Hey sunshine, you keeping outta trouble?
STINGRAY: (proudly) I stole a turtle! Does that count?
LOU: Nnnnah, don't think so.
Sky greets Lou, who wants to know where 'old Jelly Belly' is. Sky says he's gone to Tassie to visit some old friends. But he's really weird - like... REALLY...
Elle applies some lip gloss, while asking Ned about what he is doing. He's installing sensor lights in the yard, they were on special and he thought Paul might like them. He doesn't know though, he can't seem to win a trick lately! Elle says not to worry, no one can. Ned promises to protect her. Paul watches from inside and contemplates turning the hose on them. Izzy comes down (quite bizarre, as I am watching Nat perform with the Rogue Traders in Canberra at the same time hehe!) and offers to post off Paul's letters for him. Paul won't take a bar of it, he'll do it himself.
Outside, Ned is sneezing. And let me just say, Dan O'Connor is the worst fake sneezer in the world. Anyway, sneezing, yes. Turns out young Neddikins is allergic to Pineapple. As Ned achoo's away, Paul hobbles down the driveway, shivering and shaking away in fright. He pushes Ned and Elle away, saying he doesn't need their help. Izzy comes rushing out, and walks Paul back inside.
Sky has finished explaining to Lou about Harold and why he has gone to Tassie. Lou can't believe the stuff she has told him, wishing he'd known so he could have come back to help out. Sky says he has been quoting the Bible, and fire and brimstone chapters too. He hasn't even called to tell anyone he's ok. Lou thinks it is all very strange. Sky says before he left he was also spending heaps of time with Paul. Curiouser and curiouser thinks Louis. "Jelly belly, what *are* you up to?" asks Louis.
Dylan is fiddling with the hot dog stand, and Stingray is filming. Dylan manipulates him into helping him work. Oh, and Stingray has a peg on his ear. He wants to know what Dyl reckons Lynnie is going to say about the mess, but Dylan kicks him off the helping-team. Stingray goes back to filming - will the Hot Dog Cart bring Dylan true happiness?? Dylan says it will even if it kills him - this is the start of an empire. In a few years, no one will want a hot dog, they'll ask for a Dyl Dog!
DYLAN: Paul Robinson started out with nothing but a dream right here in this very house, and look at him now!!
STINGRAY: Yeah...plastic leg, and someone's tryin' to shoot him...
DYLAN: No, he'll bounce back, alright! And Dyl Dogs'll be proud to follow in his footsteps...well, footstep...well, proud to...copy him...
They pick up the cart. The wheel falls off. Maybe Stingray should have donated his peg. *shrug* Which is still on his ear, just in case you were wondering.
Izzy wraps a tea towel around her head and singsongs to Paul about lunch. He's not hungry. Maybe the sight of Mamma Maria over there has turned him off food. Who knows? Izzy thinks his lack of appetite is another great reason to see a doctor. Paul thinks this is laughable, preferring to talk about Neddikins swift gear change from being crazy about Izzy, to being Elle's live in lover. Izzy rolls her eyes and goes to answer the door.
PAUL: Is that a torch in your pocket Ned, or are you just pleased to see me?
IZZY: Very funny.
It's Dylan at the door. He's come to ask permission to flog his merchant...I mean, sell his goods at Lassiters. Paul says just do, don't ask - hasn't he learnt anything? He tells him just to go away. Izzy says Dyl caught him at a bad time, and this is his idea of tough love - he thinks the world of Dylan, really!
Oh. Dear. Lord. Here we go again. Sky and Ned do their little dance while Ned sing-songs away, concluding it with a peck on Sky's forehead. Elle wants to know what that was - he's supposed to kiss her like her lover, not her father!
ELLE: If you're worried about going at it in front of me, don't be - I'm a big girl, I'll handle it!
STINGRAY: Yeah! Go the pash!
ELLE: Thanks, Stingray.
Elle tells them to do it again with feeling. Stingray yells for them to go the tongue samba!! That peg on his ear is affecting his brain. Ned and Sky repeat their corny lines, and lean in for the pash...and they pash....and pash....Elle begins to look a little uncomfortable. As they break apart, everyone claps, and Stinger congratulates them on their good acting...
Stinger asks for Lou's take on happiness, and he tells him how it isn't about materialistic things as he once thought, but about family and friends. Lou wants to know how many people Stingray has interviewed. I just want to know why that peg hasn't cut off the circulation to his brain yet. Lou asks...has he talked to Harold? Stinger says he did but it was a bit weird...he wouldn't be able to use it. Lou asks if he can take a look.
Elle quizzes Ned and Sky about the kiss, they claim it was just acting and they felt nothing, but Elle points out a lot of actors do run off with their co-stars...Sky says that's just unprofessional. Elle asks Ned to go and try on his costume. As he leaves, Elle tells Sky again how unfazed she is by them kissing onstage. However, knowing how passionate Ned is, her lips must be a little dry. She insists Sky borrows her lip balm.
SKY: Mmm, Pineapple! I loooove Pineapple!
Lou has come over to offer his best wishes to Paul, after hearing what happened, but Paul is lying down. Izzy is a bit overwhelmed by the support - the well-wishers haven't exactly been knocking down the door. If it wasn't for Harold...Oh yes indeed young Isabelle. Izzy says he is sorely missed at the moment. Lou wonders if there was anything that made him leave. Izzy admits she accused him of trying to kill Paul. Lou wants to hear more. Izzy lists her reasons, and then Paul comes down the stairs, presuming Lou has come to gloat. He says when he finds out who attacked him, they'll wish they were never born. Lou asks Izzy if Paul feels the same about Harold, and Izzy says he never did. She doesn't either, now. When she confronted him, Harry melted down, and it was awful. How could Harry do anything like that?
Sky and Ned are going through another kissing scene, as Elle watches from behind her sewing machine. As Sky kisses Ned, he begins to sneeze. Well, have strange little convulsions involving his nose, anyway. Sky blesses him, as he glares at Elle. 'Pineapple?' Elle gives him the 'who, me?' face.
On the doorstep, Ned tells Elle she's sexy when she's jealous, but Elle insists she isn't jealous...as long as Sky keeps wearing her lip-gloss hehe! They come inside, and see Izzy moping on the couch. Elle goes up to see her Dad, and Ned asks Iz if she's alright. Izzy gets upset as she says she wants to help Paul, but she doesn't know what to do anymore. Ned puts an arm around her, just as Paul comes down the stairs. 'What the hell is going on here?'
Dylan tells Sky about how lifeless Paul is, and then asks how rehearsals went. Stingray puts in his 2 cents worth, and Dylan realises he was there. He says his camera got him in, and Dyl asks how Sky is at being Nedskies girlfriend. Sky says there are no sparks.
STINGRAY: Looked like a few sparks from where I was sitting!
SKY: Acting! It's called ACTING!!!
STINGRAY: See, I thought it was called TONSIL TENNIS!!!
Stinger says he got it all on tape, and Dylan wants to see, although Sky says it is just pretend, and a waste of time. Stingray puts the video on, right at the kiss...
STINGRAY: And they're kissing....kissing....still kissing...oh, and they're up for air!!
DYLAN: Urgh, I'm gonna kill him!
SKY: Dylan, I told you...
DYLAN: If that's acting then it deserves a fricken Logie!
Oh and Stinger, Lynnie called, she wants her clothes peg back. Thanks dude.
Izzy is protesting to Paul that Ned was just being a friend, and that's all! Paul says he knows what he saw. Izzy says he thinks he knows but he doesn't know, he's wrong! Izzy gives up and Elle says maybe she can talk to him. Iz suggests she leaves it till the morning, and they both head off to bed. Paul's eye is caught by something on Big Brother Cam #1...someone walks up the driveway with a torch, and suddenly, all the house lights go out. Paul watches the 'intruder' come towards the front door, and yells out who is there. Ned comes in and says it is just him, and flicks the fuse box. The lights come back on, and Ned says he was testing out the new lights and tripped a fuse. Elle and Izzy, who have come back down the stairs, laugh, but Paul says no - he wanted to get him on his own so he could finish him off, didn't he? He says that he's used Elle to get close to him, so he could kill him...because he's still in love with Izzy. Elle, Iz, and Ned think he's lost it. Paul picks up the phone and calls the police. Ned leaves, Elle in tow, after yelling 'how could you?' at her Dad. Izzy takes the phone, and switches it off.
PAUL: I know what I saw...
Izzy flaps her arms in despair, Lynnie-style.
Lou leaves a message on Harold's phone, asking him to give him a call. As he hangs up, he spots something in a cupboard. It's a bible, wrapped up in Harold's Salvo's jacket. Lou opens the bible at a page which is marked with David's letter. There are highlighted passages, including "Whoever kills any man, shall surely be put to death" and "Whoever kills a man shall be put to death." Lou turns the Bible sideways - there, in Harold's handwriting, it reads 'God's will be done'...
