Summary/Images by: Sophie/ShadowDan
Steph taking advice from Valda on how to salvage her relationship.
Oliver convincing Mia that they can work together.
Toadie telling Steph he knows she was thinking about leaving him.
Ramsay Street
Toadie asks Libby what happened in Shepparton.
Number 28
Inside, Toadie accuses Libby of lying to him. He asks if Steph was going to leave him and Libby won't give a straight answer - she was thinking about lots of things but Toadie isn't having it. Libby admits that she thought at one point that Steph's feelings weren't as strong as they should be, but she changed her mind. Libby tries to convince Toadie that Steph loves him, but the whole wedding thing scares her. He thinks that's a sign she isn't sure how she feels and tries to storm out.
LIBBY: Where are you going?
TOADIE: I don't know.
LIBBY: Could you pile on the melodrama a little bit thicker?
TOADIE: Well away from you and Steph for a start, how's that, eh?
LIBBY: Clearly you have to vent it to someone and since I'm the closest thing you have to a big sister it may as well be me, but don't you look at me like that. You are damn well not going anywhere.
Oliver and Mia are lying on the bed not wearing a lot of clothes. Go figure. Mia's a bit wary of going public with their relationship and wants to enjoy being together without Carmella and Marco going. Oliver agrees to keep it a secret, as long as he gets to see her. They kiss.
Number 28
Libby's made Toad a hot chocolate and sat him down for a good old chat. He thinks it's his fault for pushing Steph into marriage, being an "all or nothing guy", as Libby puts it, has got him into this mess. He's worried about Charlie and what everyone at the wedding thought, but Libby reassures him that they're his family and friends and Charlie's too young to understand properly. Libby tells him to give himself a break. He said he's been thinking that since they've had the perfect love once, maybe it's greedy to want it again, but Libby thinks that for all their sufferings they're even more entitled to it than most. She picks up the TV guide and decides they're going to watch Romeo and Juliet to see some really troubled lovers, but Toadie would rather watch Die Hard 2.
Number 32
Steph's in a panic because Bob's gone missing and worried about Toadie. Libby tells her that Toadie knows she was having doubts in Shepparton. Steph doesn't know what to do, she misses him, but Libby suggests cutting him loose so that they can both get on with their lives.
Rebecca is surprised to see Rosie in so early and suggests she takes it easy after yesterday's dizzy spell, but she insists it's fine. Rosie makes her agree not to fuss just because she's pregnant. Rebecca thinks she looks exhausted and offers to go get her a sandwich or a cup of tea or something. Rosie says she'll get it herself, she needs the air and then promptly collapses to the tuneful backing of something fragile smashing. Eek. Rebecca can't get any response from her and grabs the phone.
Outside Number 30
Frazer's frantically talking to Rebecca on the phone and jumping in the car to get to Rosie as fast as he can. He promises to be careful which one thinks may be slightly ominous. Aha! Right on cue, the missing Bob appears and decides to position himself under the wheels of Frazer's taxi. Ouch. Bridget and Steve shout to stop and Frazer jumps out to see a squealing dog looking forlorn under his car. Bridget is angry at him for not looking. Frazer says he'll pay for everything, but he has to go. Steve isn't impressed that he won't even wait to get him out from under the car, but clearly Fraze is a man on a mission.
Frazer dashes in and asks Rebecca where and how Rosie is. Rebecca says it's ok, it's just a faint, but he can't go in there yet because the paramedics are with her. Carmella appears and Frazer tells her that apparently she's ok. The paramedic comes out and tells Frazer his wife should be fine but she ought to see a doctor and go home to bed (presumably not simultaneously, I don't think gigolo's part of Karl's extensive job description). Carmella insists that she be the one to talk some sense into Rosie, so goes into see her instead of Frazer.
Ooh, it's Marco and Mia, the charismatic, alliterative siblings. Mia's hurt because Marco didn't trust her judgement. Marco sort of apologises for not being more sensitive, but refuses to fully apologise for looking out for her. She thinks he's just interfering but he reminds her of her stirring with his ex-wife, which makes them even. He tells her that Carmella took the news about his infertility well. She thinks that's good news for her and Oliver, but he doesn't want him to know and is shocked that she's still thinking of seeing him. She says she's not.
Erinsborough Vetinary Clinic
Steve is preparing to get to work on Bob. Bridget asks what his chances are and Steve says it's touch and go because he's an old dog. Toadie comes in and is told that Bob's just been given an anaesthetic. Steve explains the situation.
TOADIE: Just, whatever it takes, please, just save him, Steve.
STEVE: I'll do my best, mate.
Rosie's Office
ROSIE: Do you know how many women are pregnant in Australia at any one time? Over two hundred thousand. Imagine if they all took to their beds.
CARMELLA: We'd have an amazing unemployment rate.
Carmella's powers of persuasion are working well. Rosie doesn't intend to spend the next seven months (whoah, is it me or do pregnancies move fast in Erinsborough?) "belly-gazing", it will drive her mad because she likes her life ordered. Carmella informs her that an ordered life and a baby is an oxymoron and only achievable with a nanny, a chef and two nursery maids. Carmella thinks it's about her pride, wanting to do everything better than everyone else - including pregnancy and motherhood - and urges her just to be human for once. Rosie points to her fainting as a sign she's human, but she's fine now. Carmella reminds her of when Rosie told her what a good mother she was. She says she wasn't doing anything special, she'd just had a wake-up call and realised that nothing mattered more in the world than Chloe.
CARMELLA: Motherhood is about concentrating on what is important, just letting go of everything else. And I know that's a challenge for someone like you ...
ROSIE: So no more biscuits then?
CARMELLA: Come on, who really needs to be here, Rosie? It's not worth the effort or the risk.
Rosie admits she's exhausted and asks if it gets better. Carmella tells her it does for a while in the second trimester. Frazer appears to take Rosie home, but they have to stop by the vets and he admits the Bob fiasco.
The Vet's
Bridget's still ranting about Frazer's behaviour which is distracting Steve. The damage is pretty bad.
In the reception, Toadie is thanking Miranda and paying her for the wedding preparations. She refuses to take it, even though she and Steve are going through a tight time, which Toadie well knows. Miranda wishes she could help him and Toad admits he's scared. Steph comes through the door and they find it hard to even look at one another.
The Vet's
Steph apologises profusely for Bob getting out, but Toadie doesn't respond.
Marco arrives with Chloe for Oliver and is surprised to see the mess the room is in. Marco tells him although he won't change his mind about him and Mia, he wants to keep things civil. Oliver thinks Marco's being overprotective but Marco thinks it's none of his business.
The Vet's
Steph thinks it's best that she goes but Miranda thinks she should stay to hear if it's good news.
In the surgery, Steve is relaying what does indeed seem to be good news. Toadie hugs him. Frazer and Rosie arrive to the greeting of a tirade of abuse from Bridget. Frazer apologises to Toadie and tells Bridget that he couldn't stay. Toadie finds it hard to believe that there was something more important. Rosie takes it upon herself to get Frazer out of this mess and tells them all that she collapsed which leads to the announcement that she's pregnant. She assures Toadie that they'll manage work, but he's not worried about that and the mood goes from one of chastisement to congratulation. Bridget apologises and Rosie leaves. Frazer asks after Bob. As Rosie goes back into reception Steph and Miranda congratulate her, having heard the news. She feels terrible because of the timing with everything that's happening between Steph and Toadie but Steph tells her just to enjoy every moment. Frazer is still apologising but Toadie tells him not to worry about it - Bob shouldn't have been let out anyway. Steph looks sheepish.
Carmella comes in and Rebecca asks after Rosie, who Carmella says is fine. Rebecca tells her she hadn't known for long but she guessed from the signs - she too once ate a packet of biscuits in one sitting. Carmella asks her to keep an eye on Rosie and Rebecca says she'll try, but she's a very stubborn woman. Rebecca asks how Toadie took the news and Carm says he was happy for them, it's not like she wants out of the partnership. Rebecca thinks Toadie's going to throw himself into work now. They agree that it's going to be great for Chloe to have a cousin so near her age, although Rebecca suggests that Rosie might be raining on her parade. Marco comes in and tells Carmella he civilly dropped Chloe off at Oliver's. Rebecca's had a fax through with a list of councillors who voted to remove 24-hour security from the building where the dance party was held - and Steph was one of them.
Number 32
Steph comes home and hugs Harvey, who she tells Toadie will be coming home soon. She stares at the photo of them together and shuffles a random pack of Tarot cards, drawing the "High Priestess". She looks surprised but acceptant and grabs the phone. She rings Lyn and tells her she's made a decision and for the first time in her life, she's sure it's the right one.
The Vet's
Bob has to be kept another night for observation. Steve and Miranda leave Toadie to have some quality time with Bob. Steph comes in and asks how Bob's doing. Toadie says he's holding up and apologises for ignoring her earlier. Steph tells him that in Shepparton Libby asked her if she loved him as a friend or as a lover, and she couldn't answer because she wasn't sure but she hopes that with time and space, she can be.
TOADIE: You're going away.
