Bobby is washing the paint off the car when Celia arrives on her bike and is outraged. Bobby doesn’t think Fisher is ready for company yet but Celia says she is family.

Martin and Greta are nursing hangovers when Marilyn returns to the mobile home with a postcard from Lance. She is missing him like mad and has bought a card for him. She wants to try and write a poem.

Fisher has received another abusive phone call as Celia enters the house. She thinks he should take action against the vandals as they are real criminals unlike Fisher who is a victim of circumstance. She shows Fisher the paper and asks if there’s anything else she can do. Bobby hands her the car washing sponge!

Steven complains to Tom about Fisher at Summer Bay; what will happen to Viv when he goes to jail? Viv returns from staying with her friend Sue last night and Steven breaks the news to her. Viv wonders how Fisher could have kept it to himself for so long. She worries that she will be sent away. She goes home and tells Fisher he’s a bigger hypocrite than her father. Steven tells Tom he doesn’t want to be pen pals with Viv; it will be the same as when Sandra Barlow was sent away. There’s got to be something he can do.
