Episode Summary

Being Happy is Being Who You Are
James feels the need to do something more worthwhile with his life, and gets time off work to sort himself out. He makes friends with Gene, a worker with the homeless, and Gene encourages James to give up all his possessions and help others. James throws away everything (much to Bazza's surprise), then helps Gene clear out his upmarket apartment. But when Gene turns on James, binding and gagging him, James realises too late that he's been set up. Gene has just used him to help burgle an innocent person's home. Matthew is approached by Dallas, a client who wants to sue Tess for cutting his hair too short. Matthew takes the opportunity to see Tess again, and they spar over the case. However, when Tess counter-sues for harassment, Dallas confesses to Matthew that he gets sexual pleasure from the hair cutting. Matthew admits defeat, but by then the case has become a vehicle for Matthew and Tess to air their differences. Tina hints to Tess that there's more to Matthew's story, so Tess asks him is there's something else she should know about him? Matthew lies and says that he 'flipped out' for a while but he's better now - will she give him another chance? Tess says yes. Lindy has been short-listed for the job in Toronto, but still hasn't told William about it. In the meantime, he is asked to be a sperm donor by a nurse, and finds himself thinking more about the positives of fatherhood. When they are interviewed for a women's magazine, Lindy's dismissal of any future plans together hurts William. He says he has everything he wants here and now, but Lindy wants to keep her options open.moreless
