him to keep calm. Joe says he's got nothing to be calm about
- Steph hasn't got a boyfriend so the test must belong to
Lori or Michelle. Karl doesn't think it would be Lori as he
had recently talked to her in the surgery, but can't say anymore
about it due to patient confidentiality. Joe is furious and
thinks that Michelle's pregnancy must have something to do
with his bad parenting. Karl apologises to Joe, saying that
Michelle will have him and Darcy if needed, and goes to his
room to get ready.

is at Number 32 collecting a jumper she has left there. When
she gets up to leave, Boyd presents her with a street sign
of 'Heather St.', before admitting that he was busted for
trying to steal the real one and so had it made Max's friend

tells Harold she gave the other $500 to her other son who
is out of work, saying she would not have done it if she knew

begins with a reading from the bible, and passes on to Susan
who begins her vows. After only a few words, she stops, and
it appears she has forgotten, however she continues with a
new set of vows: "Karl, you are my love. I can't imagine
a future without you. I want to live with you, to have children
with you, to grow old with you. I can't imagine not being
with you. And I make this vow in front of everyone here today
that I will love you forever." Teary, Karl tells the
others that they were their original wedding vows. Susan asks
him if he remembers his, he does so as if it were yesterday:
"Susan, I adore you with a love that knows no bounds.
You are the sun, I am the moon. You are the words, I am the
tune." The couple exchange rings and kiss in the applause
of their guests.
has just finished making a speech and thanks everyone for
his or her support over the months. She then asks her "second
husband" Karl to throw the bridal bouquet and garter.
He does so, and Max and Steph catch them, much to the pleasure
of everyone else, and the pair joins Susan and Karl for the
first dance. Summer comments to Boyd how good a couple they
make, and Boyd agrees that he's glad that Susan and Karl are

Steph and Max.
alone, is asked by Karl and Susan what is wrong, and tells
them that "I just miss him," recalling Drew's recent
passing. Karl invites her to dance, and Susan briefly talks
and Steph are talking, and realise that almost all of their
friends and family are getting some sort of perverse pleasure
in guessing whether or not they'll become an item. They agree
that ignoring it doesn't seem to be working, so agree to go
out on a date. Through the window behind them, Summer takes
a picture of the two, while over at the Scully table Joe drags
Michelle and Connor outside.
goes over to talk to Darcy, sitting alone at a table, commenting
that it isn't like him to be a 'wallflower', and he tells
her that he and Chloe have split up. He says that she knew
he would one day want kids and she wouldn't be able to give
him that, saying she was right. He adds that he had that chance
once-staring behind Susan, she looks behind her and realises
he Is talking about Dee, who is with Toadie. Karl arrives
on the scene with a bottle of champagne and tells Susan that
he left an iron on at home so he has to rush home. She tells
him he's being ridiculous, but when he says he's "left
something on", she quickly catches on and rushes after
him. Toadie comes inside and introduces the guests to Nina
Tucker, who begins to sing.
outside the reception, Michelle tells Joe that she isn't pregnant,
but Joe tells her not to lie as Karl says the tests are accurate.
She continues, along with Connor, to plead her case to Joe
and he asks about her morning sickness, but it turns out that
she had eaten too much of Connor's chocolate cake. Lyn comes
out and asks what's going on, and Michelle tells her that
Joe has some crazy idea that she is pregnant. Joe says to
Michelle that someone in the house took the pregnancy test
and it wasn't him, which brings Lyn to say it was her -- she
was going to tell them before, and they're going to have a
baby, leaving Joe and Michelle shocked!
Lyn's pregnancy was not the scripted cliffhanger to this episode,
but was rethought after the decision was taken to shift the
orginal ending, Sarah's phonecall to the Kennedys, forward
to the following episode, 4156, the 2003 Premiere. In Australia,
a special montage set of credits was used at the end of this
episode. Featuring Nina singing 4 Your Love, while
various couples appeared on the screen in slow motion - Karl
and Susan, Steph and Max, Michelle and Connor, Toadie and
Dee, Heather and Boyd, and Joe and Lyn. In the UK, the same
set of credits was used although reduced to a shorter amount
of time, losing some of the shots.
