- Declan telling Kate he's the best person he knows.
- Declan announcing that Kate is his girlfriend.
- Declan whisking Kate off to a fancy restaurant.
- Kate feeling things are moving too fast.
- Libby turning into Baywatch style super- coach!
- Ben deciding he wants to dance instead of play footy.
- Lucas telling Libby Ben will get picked on for dancing.
- Ben angry with Libby.
Libby has gone from useless coach to expert coach to retired coach in a 24 hour period and is trying to convince Lucas to take the training session tomorrow so she can talk to Ben who won't dance. Lucas thinks Ben has come to his senses but agrees to help Libby out.
Donna clocks Declan checking Kate out and announces to the store in a completely unsubtled Donna- esque manner that he thinks she's hot. Declan reminds Donna how Kate feels about that sort of stuff so Donna goes to make amends. Kate tells her that she's not experienced in all this stuff like she is and doesn't know the rules etc.
KATE: I just don't know how to be a good girlfriend.
DONNA: Hello! You're already doing it. Well...not "doing it" doing it, I didn't mean that...
Donna apologises for having opened her loud mouth but tells Kate that she has to accept that Declan is totally into her and that she's as hot as he is. She doesn't accept how gorgeous she is.
KATE: That's because gorgeous is for girls like you. I'm just Kate.
Libby and Ben arrive just as Lucas is setting the team off on a warm up run. The talk didn't go well, Ben maintains that he just wants to play soccer. Libby overhears Callum teasing Ben about dancing.
Libby follows Toadie, Callum and Sophie into the house and tells him that someone has put Ben off dancing. Toadie busts some moves and says it wasn't him. Callum shouts from the kitchen and Toadie realises that Libby thinks he is the culprit. They call the kids into the living room.
LIBBY: Look, Ben hasn't been dobbing but someone has put him off dancing.
CALLUM: Yess!!! SOPHIE: It wasn't me.
LIBBY: Callum? Did you say anything?
CALLUM: I'm not going to answer any more questions until I talk to my lawyer.
TOADIE: Your lawyer says answer the questions.
Callum admits that he did make a few jokes but they he was just mucking around like mates do and Ben was ok with it. Libby is no further forward.
Donna has lost her enthusiasm for junk mail as all she really wants is a letter from one of her potential fathers. Declan assures her that they'll make contact, it's just early days. Donna changes the subject to Declan and Kate and tells him that he's being such a boy for believing Kate is fine when she says she is. Donna thinks Kate missed the stage in life when she realised she was hot. Eh? She's only 18 for crying out loud. Most people have to wait until they're battling middle- aged spread and wearing drab colours when suddenly Gok Wan bounces into their lives and fondles their breasts! Declan decides he no longer wants to be part of the conversation and Donna decides Kate needs lessons.
Donna needs to borrow Kate's house for a party - not an Andrew type party, but just a girls group thing. Kate tells her she doesn't need some form of therapy after their talk earlier.
DONNA: Not therapy. Just a safe, informative afternoon with some gal pals.
KATE: Who else?
Donna spins around and spies Susan so she invites her over and asks her to tell Rebecca. Kate eventually relents and hands her the door keys telling her not to plan anything weird.
Rebecca is surprised to find herself at a lingerie party. Susan says she thought Paul needed a push in the romance direction, but Rebecca is more worried about Kate. Donna admits Kate doesn't know but thinks that she needs to find her inner hottie and some confidence. Donna discourages the party organiser from displaying thigh high red leather boots and Kate is more of a novice and girly girl. Rebecca takes the boots and suggests that they'd suit Susan and her Blue Box. Susan thinks Karl might like them and Donna tries not to vomit. Oo, and there's a matching basque too.
Kate comes in and wants to know what is going on.

Donna explains that she just wants to help Kate get in touch with her sensual self. Kate freaks out that Declan has said something but Donna reassures her that he's perfectly happy with her the way she is. Kate is surprised and then wonders why Donna is doing all this then. She explains that it's not about Declan, it's about Kate.
DONNA: Embracing your inner hottie shouldn't be done for anyone but yourself. I found out the hard way and there's nothing to be scared of.
KATE: I'm not scared...
Kate is concerned that she might not have a sensual side. Donna and Susan are adamant that she will if she just gives it a go.
Rebecca pops home for her purse and Declan tells her he thinks Kate is freaking out again and wants to go and talk to her. Rebecca dissuades him as there's secret women's business going on, but reminds him that Kate loves him. Declan wonders how men and women ever work things out - it's like they're entirely different species.
Lucas and Ben arrive back from a bike ride to find Libby watching "Centre Stage". Ben is interested to see some tough guy on a Harley until he realises it's a ploy by his mum to get him to reconsider dancing. Libby tries to explain that like any other sport you've got to be really fit to dance. Ben says that dancing is for girls, Lucas said so last night. Uh, oops. Ben walks off and Libby demands to know what Lucas' problem is with men dancing.
LUCAS: It's just not something that blokes do.
LIBBY: Have you just crawled out of a cave or something? Dancers are amazing athletes.
LUCAS: Yeah! ... in tights...
LIBBY: They don't all wear tights! Did Gene Kelly wear tights?
LUCAS: I'm just trying to save him from some public humiliation.
LIBBY: Yeah, and enforcing some pretty negative stereotypes while you're at it! You work for a female mechanic. What's the difference?
LUCAS: I don't wear tights?
Ben and Lucas are being manly and knocking knuckles and mowing grass when Libby pulls up in the street with someone to introduce to them. JD is an old pupil of hers and a dancer. Ben reminds his mother that he likes to play soccer, but does agree that JD looks pretty fit.
LIBBY: (to Lucas) Fitter than you macho man.
Lucas sees where Libby is going with this and asks whether they're meant to arm wrestle or tame lions. Libby was thinking push ups. Ben thinks Uncle Lucas can beat the dancer and dashes off to find Callum and Sophie to watch. Lucas thinks Libby is being childish. Dancer dude looks like he's starting to feel a bit uncomfortable.
Later on, dancer dude is definitely out push uping Lucas. Eventually Lucas collapses in a heap with a bit of teasing from Libby and Toadie. Ben gets angry at them for making Uncle Lucas look stupid. He shouts that he doesn't want to dance and storms off.
Remember how only a few months ago Lucas couldn't walk....?
Libby, Lucas and JD find Ben at the lake throwing stones. Libby explains that she's apologised to Lucas. JD says that 50 odd push ups is still pretty awesome, he's just had more training, that's all. He tells Ben that his mum wouldn't let him go to dance classes so he pretended to be going to footy training instead.
BEN: Did kids hassle you at school?
JD: Yeah, but it was ok because I was doing what I wanted. Now dancing is way cooler than when I was at school. If you want we can go back and try out some routines.
Lucas tells Ben to do what he wants and Ben agrees to trying some routines.
Rebecca is having no trouble spending Paul's money, but Kate still can't find anything she likes. It's all too revealing. Duh, it's underwear! Donna picks out a silky not too revealing nightie thing and Kate reluctantly agrees to try it on.
Susan is ready with her kinky boots and struts out of the bedroom looking like one hot mama swishing her feather bower. Unfortunately she swishes a bit too vigorously and wobbles over!
Karl puts a bag of peas on Susan's wrist and tells her she could have left the boots on. He is highly entertained and suggests that he should be present at the next party just in case of medical emergencies and even goes as far as offering to pay for the boots.
Ben runs into the house all excited by dancing once more and asks if he can sign up for classes. Libby is delighted.
Rebecca returns with news that Susan only sprained her wrist. Donna says that the party was a stupid idea but Kate disagrees. She comes out of the bedroom wearing the nightie and tentatively suggests that she may have found her "inner sensual self". Donna is overjoyed, but Kate says she could never afford to buy it. The party organiser says that the host is meant to get a free gift and she tells Kate to keep it as she looks so beautiful.
Declan comes in and the women shriek at him. Donna pleads with Kate to believe that she didn't ask him to come over and keeps saying she's sorry. Declan isn't sorry, but Kate runs off to her room. Rebecca, Donna and the party organiser leave. Declan is confused.
After the break, Kate is still in her room while Declan apologises and tries to explain why he's there. Kate comes out and says it's ok and kisses him. He asks if she's sure and she is. He is too so they both make their way to the boudoir of newly found inner hottie. Oo la la!
- Kate and Declan get sensual and steamy.
- Donna gets a letter from a potential Dad.
- Will Donna meet her dad?
