Extended Summary

The Fletcher family are having their breakfast. Sally is excited about Christmas.

Martin is angry with Lance for giving away all of their money that was left of the A$500,000 they won.

Sally comes in and asks what they’re doing. Lance explains to her that he wasn’t happy with all the money so he gave it away to charity instead.

Frank takes Bobby out for a ride to where he grew up. A lot of footage is shown when Frank is very young and he lived in a very poor place and he was being beaten up by kids. He took Bobby down there to see where he grew up to show her why a real marriage is so important to him and that’s mainly the reason why he argued with her. They see a couple with a kid. The woman was in Frank’s class when he was young (emotional music plays)

Stacey has managed to get a recording deal for Lance and Martin due to the song “Santa never stops in Summer Bay”. They’re very surprised!

Stacey is angry with Frank as he took a day off work without asking!

Frank and Bobby tell Tom and Pippa that they will try to find their real parents to ask them to come to their wedding. Bobby and Frank say they feel like they don’t really know who they are. They tell Tom and Pippa that they are the ones they care about, but they want to find their real parents to find out about their past. Tom does not think it is a good idea that they should try to find their real parents.

Ola Carlsson, 1999
