No.30 – Lounge: Pepper is watching TV, as Adam is asleep resting his head in her lap. He wakes suddenly and Pepper reassures him he was just dreaming. She realises he’s had more of a nightmare than a dream as she susses he was thinking about his former police partner. Pepper associates the stirring up of all the bad memories is due to his wish to rejoin the force and is willing to rethink moving to Italy rather than cause him any pain for him. Adam assures her he will be fine. Pepper suggests he get counselling but he tells her he has worked out he’ll just get a desk job to avoid any pressure.

No.28 – Kitchen / Dining Table: Karl is drying up the dishes from dinner and tells the family he wants to visit Tom the following day. Susan thinks it is a good idea and asks if the kids want to join them but Zeke declines. He is still furious with them for putting Tom into the home and sure Tom never wanted to go there.

Tim Collins & Associates - office: Stonie is on the phone to his mother Angie, lying that he is calling her from the roadhouse. When she asks about Chantelle he tells her he has to go and hangs up. It’s the right decision too as Tim, Toadie and their client Ian Morecombe arrive. Stonie makes a sharp exit and Tim guides a limping Ian to a chair and brings over a pair of crutches to Ian’s side. Ian assures him the sprained ankle isn’t that bad but Tim reminds him the broken step he tripped on could have easily hurt an old lady or child and he should sue. Ian is happy just to be compensated for a days loss of earnings and the step being repaired but Tim thinks they could sue for $A50, 000! Ian isn’t so sure as the amount seems a lot but Tim advises big businesses need to be accountable when they do wrong. Tim dismisses Toadie’s comment about it being a local business rather than big business and Ian decides to sign the contract for them to represent him. As he leaves Tim hands him the crutches reminding him he needs to use them to show just how severe his injury was to the judge. After Ian leaves, Stonie comes back in the room calling them ‘Dodgy & Dodgier’.

His brother is not being a thief.

Erinsborough Police Station: Snr. Const. Sophie Cooper walks out of the station with Adam and they joke how close either of them got to being shot.

The General Store: Elle vaguely attempts to deny knowing Rebecca but then confesses she does by telling him how scared Rebecca is of him.
