- Stingray's film is watched
- Bree is glad Zeke is back
- Katya tells Susan she is going to have a BIG say in the kids' lives
The Number 30 boys return from a big night out, as Katya drives up the street in a convertible sports car.
CONNOR: Catch-a Kinski if you can!
TOADIE: Wouldn't mind...thought it was bad form having a crack at her Dad's funeral...
Katya greets the boys, and they check her out as she heads into Susan's. But here is Susie now! She and Zeke are off to Zeke's appointment with the specialist, but Katya was hoping she could take him. Susan has it all under control, but Katya bribes Zeke into going with her in the flashy car. Susan wishes him good luck as they drive off.
The boys walk into their spotless house, and...wait a sec. Number 30? Spotless? Something *earth shattering* is going down! Stu wants to see if anything has been stolen, obviously someone has been in the house, but Connor doesn't think he'll fine 'break, enter and tidy up' on the state list of offences. Toadie and Stu scream as Toad finds a huge bra on the couch. Enter Angie Rebecchi, stage right. Connor and Stu make a pretty hasty exit. Angie has been spending too much time with Kev and Stoney, and has come to spend some quality time with her little Toad. But she's going to be frank - his life is going nowhere, and he needs to find a girlfriend, like, yesterday. She's come to straighten his life out from the ground up...and she ain't goin' nowhere till the job's done!
A SilentNurse leads Zeke away, as Max hands something to the receptionist, for Dr Olenski from Steph. Karl bumps into him and he tells him it was Steph's birth-plan. Karl asks how she is, and Max says she is good - feeling a lot more relaxed than he is! As the date is getting closer, he's starting to think that Steph putting off the chemo was the right thing to do... Who gets ye olde feeling them words he will liveth to regreteth...? Max wants to know if Karl agrees... Karl wriggles out of that one by answering that Steph's positive attitude, coupled with Max's support will make all the difference. Max leaves, and Katya gets up to talk to Karl.
She comments that it is easier to deal with the patients rather than their spouses. Karl agrees it sometimes is, yes. Katya goes on to say that you can be totally honest with the ones who are sick. Karl agrees that that is the promise he made to good old Hippocrates. Katya says it must be tough when he has a personal stake in the family...she doesn't know if she could be as strong as him...
Bree is sorry she missed Zeke, but Rachel doesn't think she should care; Zeke's an A-grade wierdo. Susan says he needs support right now, not name-calling. Rachel replies that it's good Katya is around then, more support. Susan agrees, but Rachel probes, asking why Susan still wants Katya around, when she drives her crazy - she knows she has a problem with her, so why doesn't she...Stinger burst through the door, like a great, big, bouncing...Stingray. He's just got a call from the film school guy - he wants him to come in for an interview! Susan hugs him, as he tells Bree that he saw the film and thinks he has Eisenstein's gift for montage, whatever that means! He hugs Rachel and they twirl around in a dizzy happy whirl of bunnies and rainbows.
Angie is supervising the boys cleaning - she can't believe Toadie worked his butt off to become a lawyer, but is so lazy in his own home! Toadie prefers to think of it as 'creative chaos'.
ANGIE: It's filth, that's the only word for it! There are holes in the walls, burn marks in the carpet, a fridge full of antique food, and the dunny hasn't been cleaned since the Bomber's won a premiership!
TOADIE: Is this leading somewhere?
Angie sobs that she thought she had brought Toadie up to have a bit of pride, and respect. That's the one thing she wanted as a mother.
CONNOR: Angie, it's not your fault he's a slob!
Angie sobs that she's failed as a mother, and she's let Toadie down. He doesn't need her so...Toadie says he does need her, and Stu says they all need their Mum's!
Zeke comes out of his appointment, and gives Katya a thumbs up. She tells him that she knows the world is a scary place, but he ahs to separate her from that - she's his sister, and if he wants to talk to her, it can be their little secret. Zeke looks around.
ZEKE: Susan's next...she's gonna die too!
Wow, everybody give Matty Werkmeister a clap for his first line in like, two months. I'd forgotten what his voice sounded like.
Bree is interrogating Rachel about what is going on between her and Stinger. Rachel insists that they are just good friends. Bree wants to know what they are going to do today, and Rachel pulls out a bag. On seeing the contents, Bree says she's pretty sure whatever she plans to do with it is illegal, and they could get into trouble. Rachel says she will find someone else to have fun with then.
Katya tells Zeke Susan has a cold, she isn't going anywhere! She knows Alex and Fran hid their illnesses, but Susan isn't doing the same. She understands he can't trust the rest of the world, but she is different - she would never lie to him or tell a secret he had told her. He can always trust her.
Rachel is trying to find the perfect spot for her plan, while Bree tries to talk her out of it - this is what Dylan did before he ended up in Juvie! Rachel just wants to be grown up, but Bree comments graffiti isn't a sign of maturity. Rachel thinks she has found the perfect wall, but Bree says why don't they go toooo.....the train station! Uh huh, that train station - they have BIG brick wall. Less witnesses too.
Karl has brought Susan over some cold and flu tablets - Katya mentioned she wasn't well. He says he thought she would be taking Zeke to his appointment, and Susan replies she did too...she thinks Karl might be right, maybe Katya *is* trying to drive a wedge between her and Rachel and Zeke. Karl is sure things will improve with time, but leaves as Zeke and Katya arrive home. Susan asks Katya how Zeke went, did she speak to the specialist? Did Zeke speak at all? Katya says she didn't talk to the doctor, but yes, Zeke spoke. She knows, because he spoke to her...
Angie quizzes Connor and Stu about Toadies love life - she thinks he should be Bachelor of the Year; she can't work out why he is still single! The boys say he is happy, but that's not good enough for Angie. Toadie gets off the phone from Stoney - he and his wife have decided not to have kids. Now he knows the reason behind Angie's visit, she can leave! Angie doesn't think it is so wrong to want to be a grandma! (Connor and Stu exit stage left) Angie wants to feel needed and useful. Toadie says he still needs her, and she starts gushing on about what a great dad he'll make one day.
Cattier is being catty, and won't tell Susan what Zeke said, because 'I'm the only person he trusts right now, and I don't see how breaking my promise to him will help.' Susan says it isn't that black and white - they all need to work together to help him. This is just game playing - she is Zeke's legal guardian and she needs to know what is going on his life if she is going to help him.
KATYA: I told you. He spoke a few words, but they were between him and me. I'm not going to become another adult that Zeke can't trust!
Rachel tells Bree this isn't the way to the train station, but this wall will do fine anyway. Max spots them and asks what they are doing, and what's with the spray can? Bree says she was going to do an ad for Dyl Dogs. Max asks if they were going to graffiti. Rachel says it was all her idea, but Bree insists it was pure Timmins. Rachel says Bree is just sticking up for her. Before Max's head spins off with confusion, he leads the girls off to speak to their respective guardians.
Katya tells Susan Max just handed Rachel over to her - they were going to vandalize the wall at Lassiter's. Katya goes off on one about Bree being a bad influence, but Rachel insists it was her idea - Bree was against it from the start! Rachel goes outside to let Susan and Katya talk, and Katya says she best Susan is thrilled about this. Susan says of course she isn't, but Rachel needs a bit of room to make mistakes. Katya asks if that is what Alex would have wanted...
Susan says this all has to stop - point scoring against each other is doing nothing when they both want what is best for the kids. Suse admits she felt side-lined when she found out Zeke had talked. Katya admits that she enjoyed having one over her, but she did mean what she said about keeping Zeke's confidence. And maybe she was happy when Rach got busted, because she would have a chance to yell at Susan... They laugh and Susan offers to buy her dinner so they can have a proper talk. Katya agrees.
Stinger is telling Rachel all about the film school. He met the Dean, and he was awesome, but Stinger has to do one more test before he has a chance to get in - he has to make a story with a beginning, middle and an end, all in 9 photos. He has no idea what to do, but he'll think of something. Rachel assures him she is there to help. Angie storms in with Bree, looking for Janelle. She tells Scott Max caught Bree and Rachel with spray paint. Rachel says it was her idea, and Angie replies that there isn't a person alive who would believe that! Rachel yells that it is true! Angie says to keep right away from the Timmins kids, they are no good. But what chance did they have with parents like Janelle and Kim. Come to think of it, the delinquent Timminsessesses are probably the reason her boys don't want to have kids!
With the help of a flash card, Zeke thanks Bree for getting Rachel out of trouble. Stingray suddenly has an idea when he riffles through the flash cards - he will use them for his story - each card is an expression!
Katya and Susan are eating dinner, and Susan says she can see a lot of Alex in Katya. She says she thinks the reason Alex was so secretive about his illness was that he wanted to protect them all. Katya asks what made him tell, and Susan says he didn't have much choice in the end. Katya asks if his symptoms got worse, and Susan says she just thinks he knew it would come out sooner or later - it was only a matter of time. Katya is reminded that Karl was Alex's GP, and says it must have been hard for him to keep the secret. Susan says she thinks he struggled, yes.
KATYA: Karl told you, didn't he? He broke his Hippocratic Oath and told you!
