She tells him they have to go out and runs out the house.

Charlie's: Rebecca is phoning Dec and leaving messages on his answering machine which seems like the umpteenth time. Paul is beside her and he has the contract under his arm.

Dec thinks his friends are sad and suggests that they could always talk to Sunny if they're that desperate.

Bridal Store: Sunny thinks that Didge is just whingeing, Didge said she has a lot to whinge about as she's "7 months pregnant with hormones that are driving me insane!" Donna tells her that any girl would kill to be in her shoes. Didge announces that she's tired and wants to go home at which stage the receptionist comes over again and tells Didge that she was also pregnant at her wedding. Didge seems to be able to relate and understand this and accepts the receptionists offer of help to find a wedding dress.

No 26 - Living room: Dec admits to Zeke and Ringo he knew that Didge was freaked out about the wedding but admits he thought she'd give in. Dec admits the wedding is a big deal but doesn't know why it is.

Didge is worried they can't work things out, Dec says they can only try.
