03x07 - Happy Families

Post by bunniefuu »

You have a minute, sweetheart?

Uh, I'm in the bath, dad. Can it wait?

I was thinking it might be nice
for us to have a picnic later.

All of us.

You and me, and Kim, and...


Have you mentioned this to Kim yet, dad?

Why does she have to come
to the beach with us?

Well, I think the more the merrier.

- Don't you?
- No.

Anyway, I haven't got anything to wear.

I know you'll have fun, once you got there.

Wouldn't she, Cleo?

Maybe we should go to the mountains
sfor a picnic, instead. Just...

- Just, you know, for something different.
- Well...

I really like this bikini.

If we were all to go down the beach,
you'd need a new swimsuit

I really love it.

Why don't you go down after breakfast?
See if they've got one your size?

Okay. Thanks, dad.

I'm starving.
Let's get something to eat.

- What you got?
- You first.

Great. That should get
us half a fruit salad.

For eggs on toast. Minus the eggs.

Stack of pancakes without the stack.

I think it's time we got a job.

Who's he?

His name's Zane.


He's a moron.

Looks okay to me.

- Hey.
- Hey.

We're just going for a swim.

Aren't we doing the staff interviews today?

No, not for an hour and a half.

What if you're not back?

ы. We're looking for someone
to wait tables, not a rocket scientist.

She still trying to make time with you?

Just being friendly.

Gonna do some more training?

No. I'm done.

I'll catch you later, then.

Hope you like sushi.

You don't have to go to so much trouble.

That's no trouble at all.

Oh, we have this all
the time, don't we, dear?

Oh yeah, breakfast, lunch and dinner, dad.

Sandwiches would be fine. Truly.

If you insist.


Oh, that looks super, sweetheart.

Wow. New bathers. I like them.

Maybe I should get a pair, too.

I think they only come in smaller sizes.

I forgot to mention I've booked
surf skis for everyone.

- Sounds great.
- I don't know about that.

Have you ever tried it?

Paddling isn't my thing.

We'd all love to give it a go, Sam.

Can't wait.

That was so cool.

Ahh, sure makes the change.

There's so much to do at the cafe
these days. I'm so stressed out.

You need more help.

Ah, that's why I'm interviewing
for new staff this morning.

How do you know you've
picked the right person?

% reason, % instinct.

That's scientific, huh?

Well, I've got to see
them almost every day.

What sort of experience
are you looking for?

Not much. Why?

I mean, I'd be interested in trying out.


- Yeah?
- Yeah.

What are you doing here?

Lining up for the job.

Hey, no dropping the queue.


Sorry to barge in.
I'm here about the job interview.


Come right in.

My girlfriend's taking care
of the interviews.

Ah, no problem.

Hey, um. I've seen you somewhere before.


- I wonder where?
- In my dreams.

Was I being nice?

Well, yeah.

I'll just wait outside, then.

I want to thank you all for
coming, but I have some bad news.

The position has been filled.

We've been waiting an hour.

Who are you, anyway?

Who do you think I might be?

Not the manageress.
I know what she looks like.

And do you know what the assistant
manageress looks like?

This sucks.

Please feel free to leave your CVs,
for any future openings.


Why don't you come in for
a swim? It's amazing.

Ah, no, thank you. I'm fine.

- I won't take no for an answer.
- I said... no, thank you.

Sorry, I'm just, I'm really happy here.

Are you sure you're all right?

Is there something wrong, or...?

No, I'm having heaps of fun,
everything's great.

I'm really happy.

Good to hear.

Well, we'll leave you to it, then.

Have fun, sweetheart.

Where's everyone else?

They got impatient and went home.

You're the only one?

- What experience have you had?
- Only good ones.

Not so good for my old bosses, though.

Why not?

Because they missed me when I was gone.

Well, you see, the thing is, I was
supposed to wait for Rikki.

Oh, Cool. I've got other job
interviews I've got to make, anyway.

Office work.

Hey, you know what?

Why don't you just start?
I'm sure it'll be fine.

I'm sure it will.

Stop playing hard to please.

Dad's not gonna get us both gifts.

I don't want any gifts, Kim,
and neither should you.

So stop acting like a little brat.


What's wrong with you?

That's all right.

Cleo, if something's bothering you.

You know what?
You're right the water looks great.



So this is where you got to.

We were worried.

I'm sorry.

I don't understand what's going on.

I can explain.

Actually, I can't.

If this behavior was coming
from Kim, I'd be expecting it.

- It's not like you.
- I'm sorry, dad.

You think I'm trying to bring Sam
in as a replacement for your mom.

No not at all.

- I like Sam, I do.
- Well, then what is it?

You can tell me.

I was just in a bad mood.

I don't think I believe that.

I just want you to talk to me.

Should be good, us working together.

Yeah, I'll just go tell Zane.

And then we'll just see
If there's a uniform that fits.

What are you doing here?

Rikki, right? I'm Sophie.

Zane told me all about you
when he gave you the job.

That's great. Congratulations.

Zane. Office. Now.

- What?
- Urgent meeting.

Hi. We've met before.

Yeah, I remember.

Can't stand around talking.
I've got work to do.

So explain it anytime you like.

Were you mad because of Sophie?

I was meant to do the hiring.

You told me to handle it.

Yeah, if I was late. I'm not.

She was the only one that
waited around. All the others left.

They left? Why?

Ahh, let me think.

I have no idea.

So you thought you'd just hire her anyway.

I thought that she might
leave, too. That we'd miss out.

- But what's your problem, anyway?
- Bella was interested in the job as well.

Right, yeah, your friend.


- Am I stressing people out here?
- Nah it's cool.

I do want this job,
but causing grief is not my thing.

- Rikki's cool.
- No, I'm not.

I think I understand how
you must be feeling, Rikki.

But I've got a suggestion
if you're interested.


I could work today on a trial
basis, you don't have to pay me.

If you prefer someone else's
work, no hard feelings.

I'm good with that.


As long as Bella gets a trial, too.

Ready to order?

Do I look like I'm ready to order?

I'm not sure. How do you
look when you're ready?

Well, isn't it your job
to know when I'm ready?

- Maybe I should come back.
- Aw, now I'm feeling pressured.

Ordering food is a big decision.

This is where all my nutrients come from.

So, are you going to tell me what you want?

Or would you like me to decide for you?

Pineapple and watermelon smoothie.

I like a man who knows what he wants.


She's effective.


Hey, where's my drink?
I could die of thirst over here.

It's coming.

Here you go. Enjoy.

- What's wrong?
- It's hot.

What? There must be some sort of mistake.

Not off to a good start.

Yeah and you made it.

I'm so sorry.
I just used what was there.

Don't worry. I'm onto it.

I don't know how that happened.

Cleo, you are gonna love this.

You have got to take out my new jeans.

Dad bought 'em for me yesterday.

And there's shoes and...

And this ring.

Congratulations, Kim.

You are so jealous.

I don't see dad buying you anything.

I don't want him to buy me anything.

At least I'm not using bribery.

If he wants to have a girlfriend,
that's the price he has to pay.

Aw, and did I mention this
really awesome jacket he got me?

- I'm not impressed.
- Who asked you to be?

Now I'm the mature one.

The sky's the limit.

What if dad really cares about Sam?

- Does that bother you at all?
- Earth to dumb dumb.

There is no way she's
going to stick around.

She's young and got all
this future ahead of her.

- What's dad got to offer?
- Plenty.

He's old and he's got baggage.

He's not that old.

And he's handsome,
and he's caring, and he's funny.

He's got nose hair.

Kim, what if dad's really
serious about her?

I mean, eventually you're going to have to
get used to having another woman in the house.

No. No way. Never going to happen.


What are you girls talking about?

Is it what I think it is?

- No.
- Mm-hmm.

Well, yeah, a little bit.

I understand.

Why are you doing this, Kim?

Duh. Because I really need a new phone.

- Hey.
- Hey.

What are you doing?

Just fixing up the desk for Sophie.

I thought she'd finished school.

Aw, she needs it for a business course.

She can't afford a new one,
on top of her fees and everything.

Business course. Impressive.

Yeah. She's gonna be a real
mover and shaker one day.

Yeah, I believe that.

She can rub people up
the wrong way sometimes.

But she's got a heart of gold,
once you get to know her.

You really like your sister, don't you?

I owe her a lot.

Do you feel like a walk on the beach?

I've gotta finish this.


I'll see you around, then.

Okay. See ya.

Oh, maybe I'm not so cool
about Sam after all.

So don't you want your
dad to have a girlfriend?

I thought I did.

I mean, they're great together
and everything, but I...

Do you not like her?

It's not that.

Another person in my life is another
person that I have to hide from.

Hi, guys.

Are you still worried about the cafe?

I know that Sophie needs
a job, and she's really good...

Give it to her, she needs
it more than I do.

- Are you sure?
- Yeah, don't worry about it.

I will happily stick to singing.

Well, that makes things a lot simpler.

But you know, there's something
that's just not right about her.

She's really pushy.

That reminds me of someone we
know. Maybe someone in this pool.

Sam, look, I really want to apologize
for how I behaved yesterday at the beach.

Thanks, Cleo.

Your dad and I have
decided to cool it for a bit.

You're not breaking up, are you?

Well, uh...

Maybe things have been
happening a bit fast.

But you're still going to see
each other, though, aren't you?

I don't know.

I think your dad's really special.

But I don't want to jeopardize
what you guys have here.

Hey. Check this out.

- What?
- Straight from the employment agency.

Y'know, maybe you're right. Maybe we
need to interview more people for the job.

So, the first one's at ten.

What's wrong with Sophie?

- Sophie? I thought you were...
- I want to give her the job.

She's good.

Whatever you want. Sophie stays.

Dad, it's time we talked.

What's done is done.

Maybe you're right.
Sam and I wouldn't have worked out.

Dad, that is not what I think at all.

This all started at the beach
when I was rude to Sam.

But it had nothing to do with you and her.

What did it have to do with, then?

Nothing serious.

Look, I can't explain.

That's not good enough, Cleo.

Dad, if I could tell you...

It's boy trouble, isn't it?

No. Lewis and I are fine.

Go and find Sam.

Someone like her doesn't
come along every day.

- We should be about minutes.
- All under control.

Hi. Congratulations on the job.

Yeah. What do you want?

Well, you know that I'm
a friend of your brother's.

So? Do you want to order, or not?

Well, I was just hoping
that we could be friends.

We don't have anything in common.

Yeah, but it might be nice for Will.

Let me worry about him.
You just stay out of our way.

- Look, if I've done something, I'm...
- Excuse me. I'm busy.

Dad, we're watching.

Guys... I've got some big news.

Sam and I are engaged.

Wow. Oh, that's wonderful
news. Congratulations.

Thanks, Cleo. And that means a lot.

You're the one who gave me
the courage to pop the question.

This is all your fault.

I think she's a lot
happier than she sounds.

I don't want to talk.

I don't blame you for being scared.

- I'm not scared.
- Well, I am. A bit.

But we've gotta think
about dad's needs as well.

And what about me?

When does anybody think about me?

You put this whole marriage
idea thing into his head.

Can I come in?

Are you girls okay?

Yeah, I'm okay. Sorry about before.

Ah, that's all right, sweetheart.

I know it's a bit of a surprise.

I'll leave you to it.

Do you think we could talk
about my new phone tomorrow?

We'll see.

Tell you what.

I'll have a chat with Sam about it.

No promises.

Chat with Sam about it?

The nightmare begins.

- My sister the waitress.
- I kind of like it.

Thought you had bigger plans.

There's still other plans.
This is just the beginning.

- Everything cool?
- Everything's perfect.

That's what we like to hear.

Why are you all alone?

Sometimes I prefer it that way.

I thought you would have been
over there chatting up Will.

What's up?
Everything's all right, isn't it?

Yeah. Yeah, everything's fine.
