No 30 - Living room: Bib and Bob watch Toadie and Dee lying on the sofa as Dee asks why Bib is still there and not with Sarah.

Erinsborough Medical Centre - Waiting room/Darcy's office: Next morning, Toadie joins Dee as she arrives for work, pleading with her to spend some more time together.

No 26 - Kitchen: Lyn and Michelle are looking at Taj’s set drawings for the play, deciding that they need to be better. They agree that it would be worth asking Joe for help, just as he enters with laundry. They show Joe the plans, pretending to be impressed to coax him into looking, and Joe belittles the designs. He starts to suggest alternatives before seeing through their plan and retreating. He leaves to finish the housework, while Lyn mutters to Michelle that she is not giving up.

No 24 - Kitchen: Harold tells Ruby to take Rosie’s advice and go to stay with her family. She insists that they would not be able to forgive her, and Harold tells her that the more they go on like this, the worse it will get for the pair of them; he is doing this because he cares. He dials the phone and gives it to her as Derek picks up. Ruby asks if she can visit for a while, tearfully saying that she needs his help.

Erinsborough Medical Centre - Waiting room: Darcy is printing a fax with Darren’s details on it when he hears Dee and Toadie return.

No 24 - Kitchen: Ruby says to Derek that she will be leaving that afternoon and thanks Harold for his help.

She explains that she will be ready to come back once the addiction has gone and will then feel worthy of hearing him say it.

Rosie and Lou bid Ruby goodbye, and Lou praises Rosie for putting the past behind her as the car pulls away.

The Coffee Shop: Connor tells Michelle that he is looking forward to getting back to work when Joe returns as boss, before they head out. Harold arrives, explaining to Rosie and Lou that Ruby got away safely. Rosie tells Harold that she is standing in for a sick waitress, and both she and Lou tell Harold to take a rest. He thanks them both for their help, and Lou jokes that he now owes them both a coffee.

No 26 - Living room: Joe tells Connor that he can stay on as site manger for the next few weeks so that Joe can do paperwork at home and take care of housework.
