School playground
Didge organises things with Declan, Donna and Rachel to get the schoolwork she is missing covered. She looks rather lost in the school playground alone as the others head into class when the bell rings.
Number 26
Miranda is trying to line up another school for Didge and Steve says that if anyone should move it should be Justin. Didge makes it clear that she doesn't want to move and that she hasn't been expelled for violent behaviour but because she is pregnant and the Principal was just looking for an excuse to get rid of her.
Tanya has organised a photoshoot for Ty but he isn't exactly very enthusiastic about it and is glad when Rachel arrives to watch to call for a break. After chatting to Rachel, he suggests to Tanya that they go for a different look and she decide to go half-naked Ty covered in lots of baby oil... I don't think that is quite the look he wanted!
Toadie chats with the Parkers over Didge's exclusion and he agrees to chat with the Principal. Steve calls the school and a meeting is arranged for that afternoon but Didge isn't exactly happy because she's not getting to the meeting (at Toadie's suggestion).
Paul runs into Didge as she is leaving the bar and gives her the chance to use the paper to tell her side of the story but she turns his offer down although he leaves it on the table.
Lassiter's Complex
Rachel is showing Donna the pics of Ty from the photoshoot while they wait for Didge. Didge arrives and she tells them about the follow up photos and the girls can see why Rachel isn't enthralled about what happened.
Nathan puts Declan through his paces, an extra tough one, because he missed training yesterday and tells it to him straight - miss another one and he needed bother coming back again.
Number 24
Didge is bemoaning at not being involved in the talks to get her back to school but Declan is worried about what Nathan said to him to pay much attention to what she is saying. She has a dig at him for not paying attention but he spells it out to her that if he makes it into an AFL club he can provide for the 3 of them rather than having to drop out of school and flip burgers for a living.
DECLAN: Come on Didge. You complain about adults running your life but can you imagine what it would be like if we can't support ourselves? They'd be all over us.
Andrew is surprised to see a lawyer accompanying the Parkers (well Steve) for their chat. Toadie suggests a better punishment (a suspension) but Andrew isn't budging despite Libby trying to side with Didge.
Toadie tries to trick Andrew into saying he expelled Didge because she is pregnant but he's quickly onto the ball and doesn't fall for the trap, reiterating that Didge is expelled for attacking Justin.
Number 26
Didge isn't happy to hear the news that Andrew isn't relenting, and because he is maintaining that the expulsion was for violence, they can't go down the road of the equal rights commission. Toadie suggests that if they get public support, it may force Andrew into a u-turn but Miranda warns that if they go down that route who knows what may happen and that Didge may get gossiped about.
DIDGE: You're worried that your daughter's going to look like some sort of slapper with no morals.
Didge apologises for what she said after Miranda explains that isn't what she meant but rather she has enough on her plate already and doesn't need any more stress.
MIRANDA: Look I know you are angry and so am I but if enrolling in another school lets you concentrate on being healthy then I think it might be for the best.
Didge finds Paul and agrees that he can put her story in the paper although she lies by saying that she has her parents consent when he asks.
The General Store
While they wait for their order, Callum comes up with a brainwave on how to reunite Toadie and Kelly - he gets into her flat and plays her favourite song (he thinks that he'll reunite them from an idea obtained whilst watching a RomCom film). Toadie rejects that suggestion because he doesn't know her favourite song.
Meanwhile, Didge has told the girls about what she has done and Rachel warns her that she did wrong telling Paul her story after what he did to her and Angus' story.
Tanya spots that Ty's been rubbing his wrist and throws him a bottle of pills to take but he turns them down, although she leaves them with him just in case. She also hints that Ty should dump Rachel because she may detract his attention from the job in hand.
Miranda tells Steve that they need to keep a professional head on while they carry out their cleaning duties despite what Andrew has done to their daughter. They overhear Libby trying to persuade Andrew in the only classroom but his mind isn't for changing, saying that Bridget "is a magnet for trouble." He also makes it clear to Libby that since she is head of the senior school she needs to support his decisions too. Miranda decides that she's heard enough, and storms into the classroom, dumping the contents of a smelly bin over Andrew's head before about turning and leaving while Libby tries her best to stifle her laughter.
Number 26
Didge tells Declan that she is still excluded and that she has gone to the papers to tell her story. He is surprised that she did it without consulting him and puts a different slant on it - that clubs may not be willing to take him on due to the bad publicity. "We're cactus" he cries into a cushion when Didge makes it clear that they can't stop Paul running with story. She has a dig at him for giving her stick; she'll get enough of that from elsewhere for being a teenage mum.
DECLAN: It's not what I think; it's what everyone else thinks.
DIDGE: Exactly.
DIDGE: Hey this baby is ours because we love each other not because we made a mistake. Am I right?
They are in the kissing and make up stage when the Steve and Miranda arrive home, still talking about what she did. Didge notices the smell and enquires about it.
MIRANDA: A bin spilt. I spilt it.
STEVE: Yes all over your Principal.
Everyone has a laugh over it and Miranda cheers Steve up by saying that they don't need to look for new jobs either because the books at the surgery are looking better.
While they head off to shower, Didge asks Declan not to say anything about her interview with Paul.
Number 32
Rachel comments that Ty is sounding good as he plays his guitar. They end up having a mini-domestic when Rachel spots the pills that Tanya gave Ty even though he tells her that he hasn't taken any.
Callum's new idea is for Toadie to re-enact Pretty Woman (rolling up with flowers) but Toadie reminds him that Dan tried that and Libby didn't talk to him for a week.
At another table, Rachel presents a bemused Tanya by returning the tablets she left for Ty, making it clear that Ty didn't want them. Tanya spells it out to the childish Rachel that Ty is on for the big time and she isn't welcome.
The General Store
Paul picks up a copy of the paper and we see the headline - Knocked up and kicked out with a photo underneath of Didge at the school. He looks impressed but Andrew literally chokes on the coffee he's just taken a mouthful of when he sees the headlines. "He's spewing" remarks Toadie to Libby as they watch from the sidelines and she can barely contain the glee on her face.
Oh no, Steve and Miranda walk into the store rather happy and Libby quietly remarks to Toadie that they obviously haven't seen the paper given their happy faces. Libby shows them the paper when they sit at her table and are rather shocked to read Didge's story on the front page.
Paul comes over and Parkers are unimpressed at him not saying anything but he thought Didge had their support to do the article.
STEVE: That's rubbish, she wouldn't do that.
PAUL: (sarcastically) No, no, perhaps not, she is 16 and pregnant... perhaps she doesn't need your okay on absolutely everything.
Steve then tries to punch Paul's lights out and Toadie is quick to restrain him, but not quick enough to prevent Andrew haven taken a photo of what happened on his mobile phone.
