Episode Summary

EDIT
Can't Take a Joke
AIRED:
Maggie is on a private visit to the panel beater's shop when her attention is drawn to a small car sitting on top of a pile of pallets. The car belongs to Molly, the sole female employee of the shop. She is strenuously complaining about the actions of her colleagues. While the Heelers persuade the boys to return the vehicle to its owner, Maggie and Dash believe Molly has been the victim of systematic victimisation. With Tom's consent they return to the shop to warn off the foreman and his mates, but their pleas fall on deaf ears. They are soon back at the shop in answer to a fire alarm only to find a soaked Molly who has set off the sprinkler system after being locked in the changing rooms. It seems someone has stolen the boss's keys to shut her in, but were they just intending to keep Molly trapped or were they keeping her on ice for other, more sinister reasons? A description from the locksmith leads the Heelers to a young apprentice in the shop. When questioned by the Heelers, the boy not only admits doing the deed, but seems proud of it. Meanwhile, the foreman's brother has returned to town from Queensland. To Adam's chagrin, he turns out to be Stacey's old boyfriend and wastes no time renewing his acquaintance. Stacey decides to try and save her marriage by playing the two males off against one another. Adam is irritated when he discovers the two have been to the movies together and retaliates by stopping the ex-boyfriend in his car and doing a thorough roadworthy test. This backfires when the ex-boyfriend complains and lands Adam in hot water with the Boss. There is more trouble at the panel beater's when some spray paint equipment is sabotaged, seriously injuring one of the workers. The person who mixes the paint and had the greatest opportunity to sabotage turns out to be the male apprentice. However, when PJ goes to interview him, he discovers he has absconded from the scene—guilty behaviour indeed! The young man's despair has driven him to desperate measures, but Maggie talks him out of doing something drastic. The Heelers must now determine whether he is the culprit or just another victim. Adam and Dash are out on patrol when he sees the ex-boyfriend's car parked outside the Imperial Hotel. Adam, hotheadedly rushes inside where he discovers Stacey in a highly compromising situation. He resists the temptation to resolve the matter with his fists, but on the way out, Adam spots the apprentice drinking with his mates. The Heelers have already spoken to the boy and Adam doesn't know this. An ugly confrontation ensues, ending with a major injury and Adam's career in tatters.moreless
