- Andrew and Summer kiss, Summer thinks it was fun and spontaneous, but Andrew says he doesn't want to over think it, leaving Summer a bit baffled.
- Tash and Ed play Viking roleplaying. Ed likes that she'll go the extra mile.
- Andrew, Ed and Tash go into business together.
- Kyle decides to tell Jade about the kiss.
- Kate tells Jade first.
- Jade screams at Kyle to get out.
As Kyle leaves Number 26, Kate rushes to him to apologise because Jade ran off before she could explain.
KYLE: What have you done? What was this, some kind of revenge? You knew I was going to tell her so what, you get in first, stuff me over?
KATE: No, of course not!
KYLE: Then why? Why the hell would you do that?
KATE: I was trying to fix things
KYLE: What, by going behind my back? How do you think that was going to look? Any chance I had of getting Jade to understand is gone.
KATE: No I thought if Jade knew that this was my fault she would go easier on you. I was trying to take the blame.
KYLE: Yeah well your little plan backfired. Cos all she told me to do was to get out. Don't even think about going in there. You've done enough already.
Kyle drives off angrily.
Summer and Chris are at the tables outside Harold's. Chris is pacing around, telling Summer what to write in her dating column about honestly being the best policy. Summer's not listening though, she's too busy checking her phone. Even when Chris tells her she's not listening to him, she still doesn't react. Instead, she asks Chris if she should read anything into Andrew posting a link to her skatepark article on facebook. Chris says that this is what Andrew does, he networks. Summer thanks Chris and they go back to the dating column, Chris says that honesty is the best policy. He brings up how things didn't work out between him and Aidan, he needed to be honest with him and he still couldn't do it and he pushed him too far (poor Chris looks really sad). At that moment Summer gets a text, she smiles and says it's from Andrew, the text reads 'Great Article.'
Ed and Tash are on the computer. Vanessa approaches.
VANESSA: How are the coffees?
TASH: They're uh...
VANESSA: Ruined, I know! You might not realise this but I spent the last 5 years learning how to make the perfect espresso so you two had better have a good reason for why you're letting them go cold.
They're busy making an anti-gambling app for phones, Vanessa says the two of them are quite cute together but Tash says that it's just business. Vanessa says since the app is meant to help people, she'll get them fresh coffees but they'd better drink them. Ed shows Vanessa a flier for 'Comic Swap Meet 2012.'
TASH: Does it look like I belong at a comic swap?
ED: That's what you said about LARPing and look how much fun you had.
TASH: That was different. I got to hit nerds over the head with a sword.
ED: Okay... but it's gonna be amazing!
TASH: We don't have time for a nerd fest. We need to get this app finished and on the market. So go over there and get those coffees before Vanessa loses it again.
While Ed is gone, she grabs the flier and turns it upside down.
Chris arrives with Lucas's coffee, apologising that it took a while as he ended up helping Summer with something. Andrew arrives and invites him to drinks tonight to celebrate how well the app is going. Lucas thinks the anti-gambling app sounds like a good idea, but Chris won't be able to go out celebrating if he doesn't get back to work. Andrew has to get back to work too, and he gives Chris a pat on the bum as he leaves (saucy!) Chris asks if Andrew's inviting Summer, and asks if there's anything more to him linking Summer's article on facebook. Andrew says it's just networking and what happened between him and Summer was a one off.
Karl is making lunch as Summer returns. Karl asks how work was, Summer says fine but she's still got a stupid 'Dear Sally' letter to do. Karl shows her the flowers that were sent to her. Karl says there's no name on the card, and the delivery guy was 'as useful as a sponge in a flood.' All the card says is 'Congrats,' Karl assumes it's for Summer's awards, but Summer says that was days ago (and therefore everyone must have forgotten about it.) Summer thinks it's because there's been a big response to her skatepark article today (rather big headed of you Summer.) She starts to assume they're from Andrew, and puts the flowers in her room. She decides to go for a walk, and stop by the library. When she leaves, Karl gets a phonecall from Lyn, who was the one who sent the flowers.
Jade is putting all of Kyle's stuff in a black bun bag, and photos of him and her together. She takes the photo frame of the two of them (that Kyle made for her last Christmas) and looks off into the distance thoughtfully.
Kyle is talking business with Keith (the guy who would only do business with him if he was in a couple). Jade rushes over, and says that if Kyle wanted to explain, he should start talking now. Kyle feels awkward talking about it in front of Keith. She asks why he kissed Kate, Keith tells her it's none of her business what Kyle gets up to with his missus. Jade is horrified to learn that he pretended that Kate was his girlfriend for business (Keith seems horrified too.) Jade asks how long it's been going on, Kyle says it was one kiss. Keith decides to storm off, as does Jade. Kyle follows Jade
KYLE: Jade look, everything with Troy was getting intense. And I didn't know what was going on between you two, and you wouldn't talk about it
JADE: So what, this is my fault?
KYLE: No, it's mine. But it felt like you were pushing me away and I tried to talk to you about it but
JADE: But? But what, but Kate's lips got in the way?
KYLE: No. Look I was excited about getting this contract. She was there when it should have been you. I got caught up and I kissed her, that's all.
JADE: You kissed her!
KYLE: But it didn't mean anything
JADE: That means everything!
KYLE: Look, tell me what to do...
JADE: You knew more than anyone how hard it was for me to trust you. You knew how scared I was. And you know what Kate kept saying that it was all her fault but now it turns out that you kissed her! You know everyone thinks that you're this straight up guy but it turns out you're just like the rest of them.
Jade walks off.
Tash and Ed are pleased their work is done.
ED: World domination is assured, high five! (Tash gives Ed a look)
VANESSA: World domination is gonna have to wait until someone pays for all those coffees
TASH: I thought since you approved so much about what you're doing, they'd be free
VANESSA: I haven't forgotten your little cupcake experiment. Why don't you put in the odds of me giving you free coffees in your app and see what it says.
Ed offers to pay for the coffees but Tash says they'll split it. Vanessa leaves, and Tash tells Ed that Vanessa drives her nuts. Ed asks what the cupcake experiment was. Tash says that Vanessa doesn't like competition when it comes to cooking, intentionally loudly so Vanessa can hear. Ed follows this up with this wonderful chat up line.
ED: Well since we've already consumed our caffeine quota for the day, I don't suppose you'd like to try for the alcoholic equivalent?
Tash says sure, and reminds him to pay Vanessa. As Ed goes to the bar, Tash gets out her phone and starts texting.
Andrew receives a text from Tash reading 'Drinks now. Bring everyone!' Andrew replies 'On My Way.' Summer arrives and asks how Andrew is. She says thanks for what Andrew said, saying it was really sweet. Andrew says okay but he's not really sure what she means. He says her story was really great and he thought she should know. He tells her he's heading to Charlie's if she wants to come, she'd love to.
Summer and Andrew enter, Summer sees a table and is about to head there when she realises Andrew has walked in the other direction, joining Tash and Ed. Andrew greets Ed, offering him a handshake, and Ed introduces himself to Summer, but Ed's already heard about her as 'the journalist who always thinks she's right.' Chris joins them apologising that he's late, some of us have to work.
Andrew asks if the app is finished, Ed says its not even close, listing the programming languages that need to be written as Summer, Andrew and Chris look blankly. Andrew says he'll get drinks with Ed so that he can update him, in English. Chris wonders how Coco can be a language. Summer asks him why everyone is here, she thought Andrew wanted to spend time with her and now he's speaking business at the bar. Summer says Andrew sent her flowers earlier, Chris has no clue.
Jade has left all of Kyle's stuff in the living room. Kyle enters and sees it all lying there. He apologises to Jade, he hopes that if they give it time they could work it out. Jade tells him to take his stuff and get out. Kyle starts collecting his stuff and is about to head to his room when Jade tells him he can't stay here anymore, Rhys will pick up anything that he can't carry.
KYLE: This is my house too. You can't just kick me out.
JADE: This isn't a discussion.
KYLE: It was one stupid kiss
JADE: With the girl who had a crush on you for years.
KYLE: You are such a hypocrite.
JADE: Excuse me
KYLE: You sleep with Mal Kennedy and that's okay and I do this and I'm out on my ear
JADE: It is not the same. We were not together
KYLE: You knew how I felt about you.
JADE: We weren't together, Kyle, I didn't cheat on you.
Kyle's about to head off, when Jade says he's forgetting something, indicating to Bossy who's on the sofa. Kyle says she's her dog, but Jade never wanted her in the first place. Kyle calls Bossy over, who leaves the house with him.
Kate serves Andrew some drinks. She checks her phone, scrolling through her contacts from Jade to Kyle, but decides to call neither of them.
Chris, Ed and Andrew are laughing about Tash going LARPing, but Tash wants to talk about something else. She wants a game of pool, Ed leaps to his feet looking forward to it, but Tash tells Ed he should get them more drinks, and drags Andrew up to the pool table. Summer and Ed feel rejected by this. Ed goes to get drinks, while Chris tells Summer that Andrew isn't avoiding her. At the bar, the music montage begins, Ed looks over to Tash and Andrew who are playfully hitting each other. Tash looks over to Ed who quickly looks down at the bar, after a moment, Tash goes back to playing pool with Andrew, while Summer also looks on. Meanwhile, Kate looks at her phone.
It's night time, Kyle takes his stuff into the office at Dial-A-Kyle. He lies down hugging Bossy, feeling terrible.
Jade gets up and goes to the fridge. She sits down in the sofa in the living room and starts crying.
Tash and Andrew are mucking about, while Summer and Ed sit at the table at the other end of the bar both watching, moping. Chris asks Ed if he has a favourite app, because he likes one called 'Hold The Button.' Ed says that was voted one of the ten dumbest apps of all time, Chris is hurt by this. Ed realises what he's said and says he didn't mean to say he was dumb. Ed leaves, while Tash looks over and watches him go. Summer gets fed up with this and walks over, taking the pool cue out of Andrew's hands so she can speak to him.
SUMMER: What's with all these mixed signals?
ANDREW: What signals?
SUMMER: The texts, linking my article, the flowers, the invite to Charlie's and then you completely ignore me the whole night and spend it all over her.
TASH: Hello, I'm right here!
SUMMER: You know what I can't really work out, is that whether you're deliberately trying to confuse me or can't help cracking on to the first thing that moves.
ANDREW: That's enough! I have no idea what you're talking about right now.
SUMMER: Come on Andrew, you sent me flowers and then you invite me to Charlie's
ANDREW: I didn't send you flowers.
Summer says he said he did at his house, but Andrew insists he didn't send her flowers. Summer leaves.
Karl is reading when Summer comes home, upset. Karl asks what happened. She starts ranting about Andrew giving her mixed signals, spending the whole night flirting with Tash and then lying to her that the flowers weren't from him. Karl says the flowers were from Lyn, she made a mistake online and forgot to sign her name. Summer realises her mistake, and can't believe what she's done. Karl decides to get an early night and leaves Summer reeling from her mistake.
