Forced to leave Sonya’s birthday party early, Toadie struggles to focus on his work. Realising his job with Simmons and Colbert is on shaky ground, Toadie promises to find a way to stop Paul standing in the way of the development. Worried that Sonya will lose her nursery if can't save his job, Toadie jumps on Malcom's idea to find another area for the centre's car park. But then he's faced with a whole new dilemma. Meanwhile, Chris avoids making a decision about his future, by focusing on helping Andrew find the car he promised Erik.

Andrew refuses to give up, promising Erik he can pick up his car from the garage that afternoon despite not having yet found one. Can he turn his fortunes around?

Despite being torn about his solution, Toadie is disappointed when Sonya doesn’t support him. Although he makes it clear he doesn’t have any other choice, Sonya pleads with him to find one, not wanting to drag their friends even further into this. Out of options, Toadie does his best to satisfy everyone by ensuring Lucas, Lou, Kyle and the other businesses will receive the best possible offers. Touched by his efforts to keep everyone happy, Sonya promises her support. Nervous Tash practices what to say to her aunt; however, fearing rejection, she can’t bring herself to actually do it. Chris manages to convince her to take the plunge, but when she’s reminded this could damage her relationship with her father, Tash has second thoughts. Eventually realising she’ll never know about her mother if she doesn’t, Tash arranges to meet her aunt – but will her plan backfire? Seeing Sonya’s concern that she and Toadie are becoming social pariahs, Jade encourages her to stop worrying about everyone else and focus on herself. Sonya does so, and when Callum offers his blessing to her plans for expanding the family, she questions why she’s waiting. Confident they’ll soon be able to focus on themselves, Sonya puts the offer to Toadie. But with everything he has on his plate right now, will he agree?
