- Lucy wants to try for a baby as soon as possible
- Chris doesn't feel ready

- Erin has disappeared and stolen all of Marks valuables
Toadie and Sonya break the news to Cat that Erin's not going to come. Cat says she's going to head home, but Toadie offers for her to stay with him and Sonya. She eventually agrees and goes to tell her foster parents.
A group of female customers are checking out a barman who attempts to do a trick with a glass but smashes it. Georgia suggests to Sheila that its time for her to go back to work, but she explains that she has to keep him on to attract the female clientele as Off Air is stealing all of their other customers. Andres the barman (who Sheila calls Andre) arrives with the wrong order and Sheila tells Georgia that his English isn't very good - all he can say is okay!
SHEILA: I am feeling really good today; let me tell you nothing will bring me down!
(Lou enters with Lauren)
LOU: Ello, ello, ello! Happy days, I'm back in town!
SHEILA: Except maybe that.
Lucy and Chris are watching a birthing video, which Chris is struggling to deal with! Lucy is overcome with emotion when the baby is born, and as they both fawn over the new-born Paul warns them not to get ahead of themselves.
Cat's foster parents are fine with her staying the night at No. 30, and Cat and Toadie sit down to watch the football. Sonya looks at a photo of her, Toadie and Callum on the fridge and looks uncomfortable as she watches Toadie and Cat together.
Lou is catching up on the news of Sheila's heart attack and suggests she slows down, much to her disapproval. Andres brings them a bottle of wine that they didn't order; Lauren is besotted with Andres looks and Sheila explains again that he's their secret weapon against Off Air.
LAUREN: You're not the only ones feeling the pinch, were feeling it at Harold's too.
SHEILA: Yes, well that's why we've had to launch Operation Eye-candy!
Lauren notes that the plan seems to be working as The Waterhole is packed.
Paul berates Lucy for using her smartphone at the table, so she explains that she's working out her doctor's appointments for Chris. Paul asks if she's organised a contract yet, but Lucy shrugs off the idea saying that they're friends.
LUCY: Were talking about a baby here, not a company merger!
She explains that getting a contract would be illegal in Australia anyway, but Paul questions that she's only known Chris a year.
LUCY: What exactly do you thinks going to happen?
PAUL: I don't know Lucy, I don't have a crystal ball and that's exactly my point! Everybody might be on the same page at the moment, but it might not always be like that. No, you have to make sure that you and your baby are protected for the future.
The next morning, Sonya tells Karl that she doesn't know how they can move on from what Erin's done.
SONYA: Erin was so close to getting what she wanted!
KARL: Was it what she wanted, or what you wanted for her?
Karl explains that it's a classic case of self-sabotage, and Sonya should understand that. Sonya says she doesn't know where Erin could be, and Karl asks her to think what she would have done in the same situation.
The Bric-o-Brac Store
Sonya immediately finds Erin walking out of the antiques shop and desperately pleads with her to try and get back on the programme. She tells her to go and get back Marks stuff that she's clearly sold. Erin says that its way too much for her and that Cat deserves a proper mother.
ERIN: I'm doing this for Cat! Can't you see I can barely look after myself!
SONYA: Erin, please!
ERIN: Just give it up already, you don't owe me anything, you don't need to save me.
SONYA: I'm not doing that because of-
ERIN: Yes you are. You know what, I know I made your life hell and I'm letting you off the hook. Sonya, I'm not you, and I never will be. Cat is so much better off without me.
Bailey and Lou are eating together and he tells Lou about Lauren and Matt buying the house. Lou is certain that they can't afford it, and he points out there's only one customer aside from them. He tells Bailey about the Connecting Hands café that he's helping to run in Cambodia and explains that its success didn't happen overnight.
Paul gives Chris the number of his lawyer and suggests he gets a contract written up with Lucy. Paul says that hell foot the bill, and Chris is left stunned. Meanwhile, Karl sneaks up on Lou and catches him taking photos of the bar to keep an eye on the competition. Karl also says he needs to speak to Lou about E.M. Williams but Lou says he's too busy with his espionage.
Chris tells Nate that he's worried Lucy doesn't trust him now she's calling in a lawyer. Nate suggests it's a good idea and that she's looking after their interests. He explains that Chris now has the opportunity to voice all of his opinions about his rights as a father, but Chris can't understand why Paul had to be the messenger.
Toadie and Cat are bonding on the sofa. Sonya comes back and explains that she found Erin, and that she's not in a good place. Cat thanks Sonya for her help, but has given up on Erin and bursts into tears as Toadie comforts her.
Sheila can't understand why it's so quiet, and can't find Andres. Elsewhere, Chris asks Lucy about the contract but Lucy denies all knowledge of it and explains that it must have been Paul's doing. Chris says that he's actually come around to the idea of a contract, and subsequently discover they have a lot to negotiate on.
Lou is showing Andres how to work the coffee machine whilst Bailey is doubtful about his language ability! Andres is introduced to Lauren, and Lou explains his plan to her. Suddenly Sheila bursts in to confront Lou about stealing her barman:
SHEILA: You, my little chorizo, are rostered on at The Waterhole today!
Lou and Sheila bicker about him stealing Andres who points out that that they've all been pronouncing his name wrong.
LOU: Is that supposed to have me quivering in my boots?
SHEILA: I don't care what happens in your boots, but Ill tell you one thing this means war!
Toadie offers Cat a lift to the station and they both offer her support and help anytime. After Cat has left, Sonya breaks down and says that she just wanted Erin and Cat to be together, but she really doesn't think they ever will be.
Chris and Lucy discuss the terms of the contract, and they disagree about sending the child to private school. Nate brings up the question of if Lucy meets someone else, and what if they couldn't deal with the idea of Chris as a parent. Both are left silent and realise they have a lot more thinking to do.
