|Matt and Lucy's goats go wandering
all over a neighbour's concrete driveway. Harry's
mom sends a load of kids books for the hospital
children's ward. Unfortunately, she also
inadvertently sends some Queensland cockroaches
in the package and they get into the hospital.
Frank arrives with a box of souvenirs from
Shirley...Shirl will be with her mother for
another couple of weeks. He's decided to retire
on accumulated leave. Cliff Sutton tries to pull
the wool over Tom's eyes about his missing
driver's license but Frank knows that Cliff's
brother "borrowed" the license. Lucy is
34 weeks pregnant and discovers that the baby is
breach. She doesn't want a caesarian so they
search for other options. Greg Foster sets up a
train display in the club for the Burrigan-Sydney
Rail Links Centennary celebrations. His wife,
Angela, is not happy with his obsession. Harry
gets a defect notice for his car. Angela finds
out accidentally that Greg has been to see Harry
about getting a vasectomy...he doesn't want kids
because of his own bad childhood. She goes after
the train setup with a cricket bat and hits Greg
in the head with it when she spins around. Tom
has to take her in to the police station. While
there, he talks to her about her marriage. Greg
tries to talk Harry into performing the vasectomy
right away and when he won't, Greg goes to
Burrigan and has it done. Unfortunately, Angela
is already pregnant. She and Greg make up when he
finds out. Kate suggests acupuncture to help turn
Lucy's baby around without surgical intervention.
and it works. Tom is willing to move back to
Sydney for Allison but finds out that she has
already moved in with her married ex-boss, Tony
Gillespie (whom she had an affair with earlier).
Darcy is upset when Kate gets a letter from Luke
and she doesn't. Frank decides not to retire.
Rupert, a man whose many cats have died one by
one, tries to get Matt to do an autopsy -- he
thinks they've been poisoned. He's a little odd.
Frank goes out to his caravan to talk to him and
gets his foot caught in a spring-loaded trap.
Rupert thinks Frank's the one responsible for
killing his cats and won't free him. Hugo takes
Darcy to go swimming at the water hole (to cheer
her up) and Darcy gets bitten on the foot by a
stone fish. Tom and Matt go out to Rupert's place
to give Rupert a new cat to look after and find
Frank. Rupert is hospitalized for psychological
testing. Rosemary invites Terence to dinner, to
repay him for having hurt his nose previously.
They enjoy themselves immensely, in spite of the
fact that Harry and Kate crash the dinner.
