After declining Jasmine’s (Sam Frost) invitation to move in together, Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) has left her upset and bewildered. After walking away from the conversation without providing an explanation the next day, his only argument was that he needed to be there for Felicity (Jacqui Purvis), which Jasmine found difficult to accept. He’s not moving far away; he’s simply moving to a house a few blocks away!
The two eventually resolve to draw a line under it and go on, but the matter remains painful. Cash, Jasmine, and Felicity establish a bonding unit after the neighborhood is rocked by the news of a death. Felicity is stuck for anything to do, so she spends extra time with the couple – but in doing so, she oversteps her welcome by bringing up the moving in’ subject once more.
Cash pulls Felicity aside and tells her she needs to stay out of it because he and Jasmine are plainly uncomfortable talking about it. Felicity, on the other hand, has some words for her brother, claiming that the protective behavior is suffocating her. Cash, having been given fuel for thought, decides to put his apprehension of moving in with Jasmine aside and go for it.
He intends to make his change of heart known by making a spectacular romantic gesture. In the Diner, he approaches Irene (Lynne McGranger) and requests a key to the house. Irene is overjoyed – he and Jasmine have finally decided to move in together? No, Cash says they haven’t talked about it since he put an end to the plan. He intends to move in quietly and surprise her!
Cash is perplexed when Irene refuses to give him a key. Irene, on the other hand, makes it obvious that he cannot simply move in without her approval. She isn’t in the habit of giving up her house keys to just anyone who asks! When Felicity hears about Cash’s plan, she agrees with Irene – far from being a romantic notion, his proposal sounds downright intrusive…
