Summary/Images by: Emily/Graham
- Karl informs Paul his house has been broken into.
- Libby attacks Elle about the article in the paper.
- Declan and Bridget decide on a name for their daughter - India.
- Toadie warns Libby against going to court.
- Toadie relents and agrees to represent Libby.
- Toadie loses his patience in a meeting with the hospital.
- Libby fires Toadie from her case.
Lucas is keen to set up a Neighbourhood Watch given the incident at the Kennedys, but Toadie's mind is elsewhere. He's frustrated that he let the Kennedys down, and now they'll have no option but to go to court, which means more time, more money and more heartache. Lucas points out he's a great lawyer, so he'll find a way, but Toadie highlights a flaw; they fired him. He feels he's blown it.
Number 26
Little India is crying her lungs out, and Declan and Bridget are running out of ideas.
DECLAN: Maybe we should ask the parentals?
BRIDGET: We are the parentals!
In the kitchen, Rebecca, Miranda and Steve are getting used to their granddaughters name. Hearing the cries continue, Miranda wonders if they should go and lend a hand. The three agree that they don't want to look as though they are pushing Dec and Didge and agree to leave them be to keep trying, though if it hasn't stopped in five minutes, they'll go through and help.
Back in the bedroom, Bridget has lifted India from her cot and is trying to comfort her crying daughter. Declan suggests they go through the checklist once more; her nappy is fine, her temperature is fine, and Didge has just fed her so it's none of the above. The new parents are left rather lost and confused, unable to comfort their daughter.
In the kitchen, Paul wanders in, wondering what all the racket is about. Paul reveals to Rebecca that he's found two spare weeks in his schedule.
REBECCA: (excited, to Paul) Does this mean we can finally get married?
STEVE: (sarcastic) Great.
Rebecca is delighted, and is looking forward to the celebration.
PAUL: Someone (India) clearly isn't celebrating.
STEVE/MIRANDA/REBECCA (in unison): She'll be fine!
Harold's Store
Sophie is bored waiting for Kate to finish her shift. Paul appears on the phone but manages to overhear Kate telling Soph that money is tight for them. Kate apologises for his wait, but congratulates Paul on the wedding. Soph overhears Paul mentioning the cost of the wedding, and takes the opportunity to ask him if he's going to move to a mansion when he's married. Paul laughs, and tells Soph that they'll be staying in Ramsay Street.
Number 30
Callum is training Rocky, but Toadie snipes instructions at him. Rocky ends up having an accident on the carpet, causing Toadie to get angry. Callum heads outside with Rocky but not before pointing out Toadie's been in a bad mood all afternoon and he shouldn't take it out on him.
Toadie tries to ring Libby, but reaches her answer phone. He leaves a message asking for her to talk to him.
Lassiter's Complex
Declan and Bridget are onto tactic #117, taking India for a walk to try and settle her. Declan wonders if it's time to ask for help, but Bridget still feels she should be able to do it herself. Stopping by a table, Bridget sends Declan off to get her a hot chocolate.
DECLAN: I'll go to Charlie's - family discount!
Harold's Store
Harry arrives back, just as Kate's shift finishes. Lou and Harry start talking music, when Paul arrives to collect his picnic. Seeing the Ramsay kids, Paul mentions their mum's inheritance
PAUL: Well it's up to you, but there is a sum of money you are all entitled to.
HARRY: What makes you think we'd want anything from you?
Paul says he'll leave the offer open;;he pulls Harry's watch out of his pocket, and returns it to the lad, before heading off.
Lassiter's Complex
Bridget is not having much luck, calming young India down, as Paul wanders past.
PAUL: She still going?
DIDGE: Yep, lungs of steel.
PAUL: Poor you.
Harry has also wandered out, but Lou chases after him, asking to drop of a delivery for him. Harry takes the opportunity to ask Lou about Paul.
LOU: Paul Robinson? Is he evil incarnate; can he be trusted? Paul Robinson is heartless, ruthless, dishonest, smarmy, sneaky, self possessed; although I have seen touches of a human being now and again, but I think that's Rebecca's influence.
Harry mentions the offer Paul made to him and his sisters.
LOU: Take the money and run son. Make sure there are no strings attached.
Lassiter's Park
Harry has come to the lake to talk to his mum. Looking at his watch, he asks his mother what he should do.
Wandering back towards the complex, past a cheerful Paul and Rebecca (who are enjoying their picnic) he runs into Kate. Kate is keen to talk to Harry about the money, but he is still holding his grudge, and hates the idea of Paul 'buying them off'.
HARRY: Mum would still be alive if it wasn't for him.
KATE: He's just trying to help us out.
HARRY: He thinks money can make up for what he did to mum.
KATE: If he really was trying to buy us off why would he have gone to all that trouble to find your watch?
Rebecca and Paul, hear the arguing. Paul stands up to go over to them. Kate shows Harry the necklace Paul gave her that belonged to Ann.
KATE: He's looking out for us.
HARRY: I'm not going to be conned by a few presents.
KATE: Mum would have wanted us to take that money.
HARRY: Well mum's not here.
He walks off. Paul approaches Kate, asking after Harry. He doesn't want to cause any trouble, but Kate suggests it might be easier if he keeps his distance for a while.
Number 24
Kate interrupts Harry Potter and Sophie's game of Quidditch to have a family meeting.
SOPHIE: Meetings are boring.
Too right Sophie! Kate emphasises to her siblings that it is important. Harry doesn't believe their mum would've taken the money, but Kate highlights that if she had time to think about it, she'd realise it was her right.
KATE: Mum always said she wanted the best for us, and she wanted us to have more choices than she had.
Harry stands by his argument that the Robinson's gave their mum up as a baby. Sophie cuts in, asking her siblings to stop fighting. Asking if taking the money would mean Kate would have to work less, Sophie sees it as a good thing.
SOPHIE: You could go to uni like mum wanted, and I won't be home alone so much.
Putting it to a vote Kate and Sophie vote Yes, whilst Harry votes No. Kate declares decision made and she will accept the offer, but Harry still isn't happy.
Harold's Store
Steve is impressed with Lucas' Neighbourhood Watch idea. Lou points out that Harold used to run it in his time, so maybe it is time to start it up again. Callum is also keen to join in and help out with a street patrol. Realising that Toadie isn't being sociable, Lucas and Steve head over to sort him out.
Lucas jokes that moping about isn't going to help Toadie win the case.
TOADIE: What I need is a miracle, mate.
LUCAS: Well they're pretty hard to come by.
Lucas suggests he come up with a plan. Toadie isn't sure how he can, given that he hasn't seen Libby or Dan all day.
LUCAS: You're a lawyer. Prepare an argument that neither Libby nor Dan can refuse.
Steve highlights all Toadie's good points as a lawyer, the Chris Knight case, and the numerous occasions he's represented Paul, even when he's pleaded guilty. Lou throws in his tuppence worth too.
LOU: An honest lawyer, what is the world coming to?
CALLUM: Yeah, you're awesome.
LUCAS: So what are you going to do; sit here and sulk, or get up and kick some hospital backside?
It would seem Toadie has quite a strong support group, and has been left little choice but to fight the hospital. Getting up he heads off with Rocky, leaving the boys to celebrate their success.
Number 26
India is still crying her little lungs out, much to the distress of her new parents. Declan decides it's time for time out, leaving Bridget to hold the fort.
BRIDGET (to India): We love that you are feisty, but we could really do with some downtime.
Miranda finally appears at the door to see what's going on. Bridget maintains that she is fine, so when Steve appears, Miranda suggests they both leave her too it.
Out in the kitchen, Steve recons it's time to offer help, but Miranda doesn't wish to interfere.
MIRANDA: I don't want to suffocate her like I did when she was pregnant.
Miranda isn't sure about looking after a newborn herself, but Steve doesn't see it as an issue.
Harold's Store
Prepared with laptop and a coffee, Toadie starts to plan his case to propose to Libby and Dan.
Later, Callum meets with Lucas and Lou to prepare tactics for the street patrol. Lucas isn't so sure he should be taking it so seriously, but Callum is all prepared with his wrestling moves to take down the burglars. Lou points out that they'll mainly be there as a deterrent, disappointing the young chap.
Toadie returns to meet up with them, with his statements and case all prepared to face Libby, Dan, Susan and the hospital board. He informs Lucas that he has filed an application to challenge the hospital system. Next step is to get Libby and Dan back onside!
Number 24
Bridget is beginning to lose her patience with India. Miranda arrives, so Declan takes it as his cue for another break. Bridget apologises to her mum for all the noise; it's driving her mad. Miranda reminds Didge that this is what babies do - cry!
Miranda reassures Didge that she is doing fine, and that she's a fantastic mother, even if she doesn't feel like it. She asks that she gives her a turn at being grandmother for a while, and Bridget agrees to take a break. With Didge out the room, India soon calms to Miranda's soothing voice.
Charlie's Bar
Rebecca and Paul are looking through holiday brochures, planning their honeymoon destination. Paul wonders if they should just elope and get married on one of the wonderful beaches, but it would seem Rebecca is quite keen to have her family present on the day.
Kate and Soph arrive to talk to Paul.
SOPHIE: Thanks Mr Robinson, we'd like our mum's money.
Surprised by the bluntness of her sister, Kate quickly apologises, but Paul doesn't mind. He agrees to set them up a trust fund; that they'll be able to draw on for school and university expenses.
SOPHIE: Are we rich?
PAUL: No, but it'll help with your education.
Kate thanks Paul, and they head off to leave the happy couple in peace. Touched by her fiancée's kindness, Rebecca declares she can't wait to marry him.
Number 24
With the house to himself, Harry takes the advantage to blast his music. Too busy playing drums on pots and pans with the traditional wooden spoon, he isn't able to hear Steve at the door. Steve asks if he can keep the noise down (ala Joe and Tad circa 2001) as they've got the baby next door. Harry apologises; he didn't realise how loud he was playing.
Kate and Sophie arrive back, so Steve heads off. Kate informs Harry that the money is theirs, but get no response, so they leave him be. Angry, Harry swipes the countertop clear and crashes his head into his hands.
Ramsay Street
Callum has completed another lap of the street, so Lou suggests he does another. Lucas comes to join them, and suggests they post some leaflets though the doors, but Lou is more interested in the bargains in the paper. Lucas doesn't feel that Lou is taking it seriously, and is about to head off until they hear a crash over at the Kennedys. Talk about good timing!
Number 28
Having climbed in the back window (a sign of good security!), Lucas lets Lou in through the front door. No one appears to be home, but the 'burglar' hasn't left. Giving whoever it is five seconds to come out, Harry appears from behind the sofa. Lucas warns him not to go anywhere.
