So Lucas has officially inherited more than $700,000 from his late father. Wow-ee. And how is he spending it? By paying Chris $22 an hour at the garage, shouting everyone at Charlie’s drinks and, sigh, gambling it away. Some random chick suddenly took an interest in him after his drink splurge, and somehow managed to get him gambling on the races, after some sexual innuendo (“So, you’re good with your hands?”). Bit risque for 6:30, that’s for sure. I love how Charlie’s gets transformed into something different every episode. It’s a restaurant one minute, wedding reception the next, pub after that, and tonight it was an automatic TAB. Awesome. So Chris is hanging around because it’s their lunch break, then when he asks if they’re going back to the garage, Lucas snaps and tells him to get lost. And now he feels guilty. Aww. But instead of apologising, what does he do? Rings his old bookie to place the biggest bet possible. Tut tut.
Summer has automatically jumped from her already-unbelievable job at the newspaper to another unbelieveable career path at Pirate Net. How does she get these jobs? Give me one at least. Anyway, Summer’s ‘Hoyland Report’ (I cringed when she said it) was a way of getting her actual opinion on the community garden across. But just as she’s about to say it, Andrew rings (how did she know this was what he would ask her?) and tells Summer to not raise the issue again. She agrees, because it was actually his fault she got sacked, and starts crapping on about some skate park. And she got no callers. Suck.
Andrew was actually on a driving lesson with Paul – and the only reason he was doing it was to keep him and Summer apart. Ha! Paul says that she’s having too much an influence on Andrew – yeah, like Paul can talk.
