Matilda’s preparations for her big HSC trial exam are interrupted when Emma turns up with news that she may be pregnant by Reuben’s mate Bondy. Emma’s pregnancy test turns out positive and the pair leave it in the kitchen bin before going off to school.
When Ric discovers the positive test, he jumps to the conclusion that Matilda is pregnant. Meanwhile, during the exam, when Matilda realises that distraught Emma hasn’t written anything, she swaps Emma’s exam paper for her completed paper and quickly finishes Emma’s test herself, hoping Fisher hasn’t noticed.
