LUCAS: Do you know what makes it worse. That it was you
MICHAEL: I didn't know what to say.
LUCAS: You could have been honest. It was easier to spit on two years of friendship like it was nothing
MICHAEL: I love her!

Tash thinks it's weird that Michael and Emilia are going to have a meal together, as usually it's just Michael and Tash together.

EMILIA: You do know, I'm never going to take him away from you. Yeah?
Sonya is worrying about Toadie taking his fertility sample in to the doctor, asking him to make sure he keeps it at the right temperature and doesn't drop it etc. Karl comes over to speak to them about this, reminding them the sample has to be in at the doctor's in under 2 hours. Just as Toadie's about to get going, he gets a phone call telling him has to drop a file into work.

Michael feels guilty about all the people they've hurt - Lucas, Tash, Helena.
EMILIA: At least we're being honest with each other about how we feel. We're not pretending that these feelings aren't important. Maybe we should have done that from the start. Anyway, the main difference is that we've got each other. We're not running away from that.
Simmons and Colbert Law Firm
Toadie leaves the file with Charlotte, but she asks him to stay as she needs someone to go through it with her. She asks if Toadie has somewhere more important to be - he says not if she needs to talk it through (well this makes no sense - he could have easily said he was busy)

LUCAS: You must all be having a good laugh, you, your dad, your auntie
TASH: Lucas, it's not like that
LUCAS: Your family's sick, you know that. Your precious aunt is a two- faced tramp. Your dad is even worse. Not happy unless he's stealing somebody else's woman. First Rebecca, then Emilia. Once wasn't good enough for him?
TASH: Don't you dare talk about my dad like that
LUCAS: Truth hurts
CHRIS: Hey, Lucas...
TASH: Don't come in here and badmouth my family
LUCAS: You're gutless scum, the pair of you
TASH: And you're a pathetic bitter old man, who's upset because he didn't get the girl. They belong together Lucas, get over it!
Lucas storms off

AIDAN: You're not his dad
CHRIS: He needs someone looking out for him
AIDAN: Fine, but just don't let him use you as a punching bag. Find a different way for him to get it off his chest, or just stay out of his way.

KARL: No you don't, I'm a doctor I can sign on your behalf
TOADIE and SONYA: What?
TOADIE: Why didn't you say that before?
KARL: Because you two were too busy arguing. Now I'll put this into the lab, go and shift the car!
TOADIE: It's okay, it's all going to be okay
SONYA: Yes the sample made it
TOADIE: Let's never speak of this again.

EMILIA: Michael and I, we have a connection
LUCAS: What are you saying, that you wanted him the whole time you were with me?
EMILIA: Michael's and my history, it goes back years, long before I knew you
LUCAS: So what, your sister dies and you get over it by hooking up with her husband. That's sick!
EMILIA: I love him Lucas, I always have!
