With the deadline looming to pay his daughter Xanthe’s university fees, Gary Canning is stressed-out as he still hasn’t been able to raise the extra money he needs to send Xanthe off to study medicine.
After discovering a bank loan will take about two weeks to sort out, desperate Gary realises he may only be left with one option – to “borrow” the money from the bag of stolen cash he has been secretly hiding following his dodgy dealings with prison inmate Jeremy Sluggett earlier in the year. Will Gary swipe the $100,000 he needs for Xanthe’s uni fees and hope criminal Jeremy never finds out?
Meanwhile, Karl and Susan Kennedy are in disagreement over his sister Jemima Davies-Smythe’s offer to set them up financially for the rest of their lives.

Elsewhere, legal eagle Toadie Rebecchi unexpectedly finds himself in a frisky mood at work, unaware neighbour Dipi Rebecchi’s special aphrodisiac tea has found its way into the office cupboard! Can Toadie’s wife Sonya help him out with his problem?
