Didge's application to find her birth parents being turned down.
Number 26
Steve catches the end of a telephone conversation that Miranda is having, begging the caller to stay away and not contact them any more, and passes it off as a pushy survey when he asks who called. He then reminds her that they are going to the ultrasound and sends her off to change as the now arrived Didge, Declan and Rebecca argue over what the sex of the baby is going to be.
The arguing continues as they wait for their appointment with Declan so sure they are having a boy because he's been communicating with tadpole. Steve joins in the fun too but Miranda has a right face on her and tells them to ask the doctor to confirm it, and in unison Didge and Declan say "no".
Dr Newton arrives (she is covering for Dr Olenski) and asks if they've tracked down her medical history yet, they haven't, so they all head into the room although Miranda is very hesitant about going in.
Inside the room, Peggy carries out the ultrasound and everyone (bar Miranda) is mesmerised by what they are seeing onscreen. Its good news about bubs too - everything is as it should be.
DECLAN: That's our kid.
DIDGE: I know!
Peggy asks if they want to know the sex of the baby but they both reject her offer, instead wanting it to be a surprise.
Steph catches Lucas looking at photos of Elle on his laptop and doesn't believe him when he tries so say they for work nor that there is no Elle and him. She then tests him about his prospects with any of the punters that are currently in the bar and he tells her about someone he's had his eye on, so she bets him to try and get her phone number.
LUCAS: I bet you I can, what's at stake?
STEPH: Oh you know, a bit of public humiliation of the karaoke kind.
LUCAS: Yeah, sounds fair.
They pretend to spit on their hands and shake.
Number 26
Everyone bar Miranda (who is in the kitchen) is watching the DVD of the ultrasound but Steve and Rebecca finally bail to head to work and plan to discuss names on the way.
REBECCA: Oh yes I've always loved Cletus for a boy.
STEVE: Clinton
REBECCA: Or what about Claris if it's a girl.
Declan and Didge yell at them to leave and Miranda tries to put the kybosh on them watching the DVD again by opening the curtains when she finally comes through from the kitchen. They resume watching it when she gets ready to leave and in the kitchen, she overhears them hoping that they don't turn out to be hard core parents!
As they watch the DVD, Declan remarks that he wouldn't mind if they had a girl as long as she turned out like her and Didge wonders if her birth mum saw something like this, why did she give her away.
Ramsay Street
Callum is doing his very best to scare Ben by talking about the horror film Friday the thirteenth.
BEN: Why's it so scary then?
CALLUM: Okay so, there's these evil sprits and they do really nasty stuff.
BEN: That's Halloween.
CALLUM: Scouts honour, Dib Dib Dob Dob. Ask Toad.
BEN: (getting worried) What sort of nasty stuff?
CALLUM: If you made your bed today, those evil sprits, they go into your room and take your guts and turn them into mush.
BEN: (seriously worried) Shut up. I've already made my bed.
CALLUM: Then you're a goner, unless...
BEN: What?
CALLUM: Ok it's pretty crazy and you can't tell a soul about it otherwise it won't work.
BEN: What is it?
CALLUM: Ok, you know how you normally eat with a knife and fork?
Number 30
Harold is round for a meal and he's so pleased to have been invited now he can taste his food again. Libby and Dan start joking about it being Friday the 13th and Ben sits there worried. Harold asks them to name one bad thing that has happened on a Friday the 13th and Dan rattles off a few things. Libby tells everyone to eat their food (spag bol by the looks of it) and Ben picks the spaghetti up with his hands and begins to eat.
LIBBY: Benjamin Ian Kirk, what has gotten into you?!
BEN: I didn't want the evil spirit's to get me.
LIBBY: Sweetheart, where's this coming from?
BEN: Cal said that Toadie said scary things are going to happen to me 'cos I made my bed today, and I didn't know that I wasn't supposed to.
HAROLD: Oh dear.
BEN: And now my guts are going to turn to mush because I told you.
DAN: Mate you know what we do when someone does something to us that we don't like?
BEN: Turn the other cheek?
DAN: Get even.
Number 26
Miranda interrupts Didge watching the DVD to say that she couldn't love her any more than she already does. She then however admits that she isn't happy about Didge meeting her birth mother and angrily tells her that it's about time she let the whole thing go.
Lucas is working his charm on the mystery woman as Steph watches on and just as she is about to had over her phone number to him, Steph interrupts and pretends that she is his fiancée!
STEPH: (when Lucas starts to protest) Babe really, if I didn't adore you so much this whole picking up strangers thing would really hurt.
Despite Lucas wanting mystery woman to stay, she decides its best she leaves.
STEPH: (grinning) You didn't get her number did you?
LUCAS: I was just about to.
STEPH: Justa doesn't cut it, it was a bet, you lost.
LUCAS: No you cheated.
STEPH: (dragging Lucas to the stage) Never said I couldn't make it more challenging.
LUCAS: There is no way.
STEPH: Hit the stage baby, the crowd's waiting!
Ramsay Street
Toadie is practicing (and failing) at knot tying so he decides to play scary by shining his touch under his chin but Callum asks him to stop because he's never been in a tent in the dark before.
Suddenly some noises are heard outside and Toadie ask Callum to go outside and look but he quickly asks if he is crazy before reminding him that he is he adult, so he can do it. However, before he can go outside, what is outside, bursts into their tent and scares the living daylights out of Callum and less so Toadie. Turns out that its just Dan and Ben with masks on, out for revenge after what Callum did earlier. Toadie however is pleased at Callum pulling a prank while Ben is happy to be even.
Lucas is taking his punishment like a man and is singing (badly) his heart out however as the camera pans to the bar, we see that its just about deserted bar Steph, the barman and some random extra but even he decides to leave! Thankfully the pain, sorry singing stops, and Steph comments about him emptying the bar and that he gave Kate Bush a run for his money!
Steph heads to the bar to buy him a drink and somehow the mystery woman appears and Lucas tells her that Steph isn't his girlfriend. "Yes I'd worked that out" she replies before finally putting her number into his hand and before leaving gives him some advice - don't give up the day job!
Its Lucas' turn to gloat now because he's won the bet and we have to listen, sorry suffer, Steph singing again! Although she hasn't improved any since she sung at Rosie's hen night she thankfully isn't as bad as Lucas was and actually has a crowd watching her.
Once she finishes, Lucas rubs salt into her wounds - mystery woman was giving him her number because she needs photographs taken for her company! He adds that he couldn't do the pick up thing and instead traded war stories with mystery woman who'd also broken up with someone. Steph is proved right through when he confesses to not being over Elle so she asks for his phone (to delete Elle's texts) and for him to delete all the photo's of Elle to put him back on the road to recovery but when they are going through the photo's to delete, Steph find a picture of a boy in one of them that looks like Zeke.
Didge is having a bad day at work (she dropped a load of towels) and as the newly arrived Rebecca goes to help, Didge leaves and heads into a changing room. Rebecca follows her and Didge explains what is wrong with her - she isn't happy at Miranda flipping out over her wanting to continue looking for her birth mother, so she tries to explain that Miranda is just trying to protect her. She also tries to explain to Didge what its like for the birth mother too, citing her own experience and when Didge mentions that her birth mother doesn't want to meet her, Rebecca gives her the number of a PI that she can hire to track the woman down.
Harold's Store
Miranda is annoyed to hear the advice Rebecca gave to Didge about tracking down her birth mother when they meet in the store.
REBECCA: Listen Miranda, you're her mother, you raised her, nothing's going to change that, but she needs your support.
Miranda doesn't think so, replying that Didge needs her protection because the birth mother is bad news. Rebecca wants to know why she thinks that. Miranda begins to reply about women offloading their children but when she sees the hurt in Rebecca's face and realising what she's said and to whom, quickly apologises instead.
REBECCA: There are many, many, different reasons, why mothers give up their children okay. (Miranda nods) I'm just wondering why your so against Bridget finding hers.
Number 30
Harold comes by with some flowers for Libby and to have a chat. After chatting a bit about how Lou is taking the news of what Harold has done with his house, Harold asks Libby when she is going to give up the silly feud between her and Steph. "When she apologises" is Libby's reply so Harold dishes out some advice to her - lifelong friends are so hard to find.
HAROLD: Isn't it worth someone swallowing ones pride to keep a friendship like that don't you think?
LIBBY: (after a pause) I will if you will.
Number 26
Miranda is still in a mood when Steve arrives home because Didge isn't giving up. She also tells him that Didge was so angry when she left and he replies that Didge should be getting angry at the woman who gave her up.
Rebecca catches Didge as she works, to ask that she doesn't go ahead with the PI because she let her own experience cloud her judgement and going behind Miranda's back was wrong although she adds that she didn't tell Miranda everything. Didge isn't pleased at Rebecca talking to her mum as she'd freak if she knew the whole truth and thinks its unfair when Rebecca tells her that Miranda is only trying to protect her. "Just promise me you won't rush into anything" Rebecca asks but Didge tells her its too late - she's already made contact with the PI and isn't going to call him off.
DIDGE: That women gave me away and I want to find out why.
Rebecca nods in agreement as we head into the final commercial break.
Number 26
Steve tries to reassure Miranda that she made the right decision but she confesses to him her secret - she was the one that said no to Didge's birth mother contacting her.
STEVE: (shocked) What?
MIRANDA: I paid her to stay away.
