Chris is watching TV when his phone rings.
Aidan is making a call, waiting for Chris to answer.
Kyle asks Chris something, but he doesn't respond. He rejects Aidan's call.
Aidan looks despondent. Georgia bounces in, but spots that Aidan isn't happy. She enquires about his ankle.
Kyle asks Chris if he's sure. He says he can't keep sticking around. Kyle suggests giving Aidan time. Chris says there's no point.
CHRIS: He won't change. He can't.
Aidan tells Georgia that Chris wants space - he would. Georgia says that Chris is different, and suggests that he should be romantic and show Chris he still wants them to be romantic.
Ajay has a quick bit of toast and grabs a folder. Rani's made him some lunch. Priya hands him an envelope, and at that precise moment, she gets a call from Paul. She explains it as being about the School Board, but Ajay looks contemptuous and doesn't want to hear it.
Rani is shopping. Sonya, Callum and Nell come in. Rani thinks Nell is cute.
CALLUM: Nell got all the looks in the family.
Cal asks Rani how she's doing. She replies that it would be easier without Priya being at home. He invites her to come over, but she declines. He's concerned.
Simmons and Colbert
Ajay and Toadie discuss the clients for the day. Toadie tries to persuade Ajay not to take a particular client - it's a divorce case where the client had an affair. Ajay appreciates the thought, but says it's not a problem.
Callum is cradling Nell when there's a knock at the door. He puts her down, messes his hair and throws talcum powder on his T- shirt, before answering the door to Rani. He tells he needed her to come over to help him with Nell, because Sonya's got to rest and Toadie's at work. Baby Nell is looking remarkably contented. Still, Rani lifts her out of the crib and Callum smirks.
Chris is eating cereal and Aidan arrives. He admits he should have told Chris about Nate, but he really didn't think it was important, because it was work stuff. He assures Chris that he can be more open. Chris doesn't think anything will change.
AIDAN: I know that you need more than an apology and I still want to be with you. Move in with me?
Aidan puts a set of keys by Chris's bowl. He leaves and Chris stares after him.
Simmons and Colbert
Ajay shakes hands with his client: Tony Corvus. He tells Ajay not to get divorced - it brings out the worst in people. Ajay says his wife's demands are pretty standard: 50% of his savings, investments and the house. He agrees that his wife can stay in the house, because he can move in with his girlfriend - his "hot secretary". He shows Ajay a picture on his phone. Ajay frowns and pushes on with the investments.
Chris is on the couch again. Kyle comes in and Chris tells him what Aidan said. Kyle asks what he's going to do. Chris doesn't know: he had hoped they were going to live together at some point. He asks Kyle was it easier when he lived with Jade. Kyle said it sometimes made things harder. Chris looks undecided and toys with the keys.
Rani is putting Nell's socks on. She tells Callum how to pick her up. Callum picks her up awkwardly and acts grateful. Rani offers to stay until Sonya wakes up.
Simmons and Colbert
Troy's wife Sheree has arrived, but Ajay explains they can't start until her lawyer arrives. However, the lawyer has sent a text apologising for being late. Tony accuses Sheree of doing it to get back at him - she's already getting the house and the 4x4. She asks what she was supposed to do - he was having an affair. He says she should accept it - it happens all the time. Ajay winces and starts packing up his stuff as the couple continue to argue. Tony then notices that Ajay is leaving and asks if they are waiting for Sheree's lawyer.
AJAY: You can wait for whoever you like. I'm not interested in working for trash like you.
Tony looks stunned as Ajay walks out, wishing Sheree good luck as he leaves.
Priya opens the door to Charlotte. She tells Priya that Ajay walked out on a client, and Priya is surprised because Ajay is normally very professional. Charlotte agrees: she can't work out why he'd walk out on this divorce case... Priya interrupts and tells her that she and Ajay have been having a few marriage problems.
Rani comes across the video of the Ramsay Street documentary.
CALLUM: There's a bunch of people on it who used to live on the street.
Nell is crying and he picks her up. Rani scowls, realising that Callum didn't need her help. He explains that he wanted to take her mind off what was happening. He apologises for lying, but it seemed to work for a while. Sonya gets up, and invites her to stay for chocolate biscuits. Rani agrees to stay and she and Callum go to watch the video.
Ajay comes in, looking stressed. Priya dashes in from a bedroom, saying that she talked to Charlotte and she was worried. He fobs her off, but she babbles on.
PRIYA: My mistakes: I know it's affected you at work: I hate that.
Ajay ignores her. She goes to her room. He calls Charlotte and arranges to meet.
Aidan is sitting at a table and Chris over to join him. Chris puts the keys on the table and says he can't move in. Aidan wants him to reconsider but Chris is determined. Aidan says sharing his place is a start towards being more open. He's trying to change. Chris says he can't.
CHRIS: I love you Aidan, but I can't do this any more.
Charlotte marches up to where Ajay is sitting and asks how he could be so unprofessional. He says he can't represent someone who makes his skin crawl. She retorts that he'll represent anyone the firm tells him to. Ajay says nothing, so she says she spoke to Priya. He asks if Priya said she had an affair with Paul. Charlotte is taken aback, and promises to represent Tony if he takes on other clients. Ajay says he's not coming back, he's resigning to spend more time with Rani. She points out that he needs a job. He agrees, but not one where he has to work 24/7. He gets up to leave, leaving Charlotte looking stunned.
