Episode Summary

Episode 3
It's safe to say that London hasn't lived up to English teacher Nic's expectations. After disaster struck in his new flat, he has found himself living with a fellow teacher and his rather interesting family. Nic is getting in alot of TV viewing! But just when Nic thought his life had truly hit rock bottom, he finds himself being blackmailed by a student with whom he had a one-night stand. Meanwhile, Jeremy - still reeling from the discovery that Ned is not his son - heads back to Australia from London to have it out with his ex-wife, Lydia. As for lovely Lizzie, she's still haunted by the tragic boating accident in Thailand.moreless

  • This just keeps on getting better.

    After lasts weeks episode I thought that this week woudn't be so good but I was wrong, it was even better! Now I do believe that this is such a great Aussie show and I am puzzeled to why they only made 6 episodes for now, even if they do come out with another 20 next year. I am loving all of the storylines based on Nic, Ned and Tamsin but I really hate Callum's storylines. Not because he is homosexual but I find his storylines dull. Lizzie's ghost of Jim is really creeping me out and the parents storylines haven't got me too interested. This just keeps getting better every week!moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Mr. Allenby: You know, Lizzie, to this day I remember your description of a sunset over the Hindukush. It made me excited about travel.
      Lizzie: That's before I went there. I got held up at gunpoint at the Hindukush and a monkey stole my sunglasses.

    • Lizzie: Mind you, there is nothing too exotic about being trampled to death by a hippo. I mean, chances are very, very remote. Much more likely to get dysentry or bilharziosis.

    • Lydia: Oh, I am not a control freak. I simply want people to do precisely what I want, exactly when I ask it.

    • Bob: You know, generations of poofs who fought for the right to see Mamma Mia! twenty-three times.

    • Ned: There is a reason, I just found out that my dad is not really my dad.
      Man: Really, you're adopted?
      Ned: No, I'm not adopted. It just turns out that my uncle is my real dad. Please I don't want anyone knowing.
      Man: Oh crist no, no. You just forget you ever told me.

    • Lizzie: Just when I start to think, maybe I can survive sharing a flat with you, you open your mouth, there you are.

    • Ned: What are the odds, do you think, of your uncle, turning out to be your father?
      Nic: Seriously?
      Ned: Ye...
      Nic: When did you find out?
      Ned: The other day.
      Nic: Shit!

    • Jeremy: Don't you dare tell me what is important. Who is his father?
      Lydia: James...
      Jeremy: James who? I know hundred of James's. Pause Not my brother James...

    • Lizzie: Someone can't just die right in front of my and that be all there is.
