Jim Robinson: They're just a couple of kids. It's an insane idea!
Scott Robinson: [having had enough of Jim's resistance] There's is just no way to please you is there, whatever I do. Well, too bad. Charlene and I are getting married, whether you like it or not.
Jim: Don't be ridiculous, Scott!
Scott: [brushes off concerns to calm] You're not gonna change your mind -
Jim: All right, all right, go ahead and do it, but don't expect me to be at the wedding! [goes to dining room]


[Sonya and Toadie visit Callum's room as he suddenly revives]
Callum Jones: [visualizes the woman in his dream and sees its really Sonya] Mum? It's her, I remember.
Jarrod "Toadfish/Toadie" Rebecchi: No it's Sonya.
Callum: No..
Toadie: No you had an operation.
Callum: No..
Toadie: Sonya, can you...
Sonya Mitchell: [looking at Callum] I'm so sorry, baby. [to Toadie as he looked back and forth at them] I'm his mother, Toad.


[with Callum gaining consciousness and revealing that Sonya is his mother, she tries to explain herself to Toadie at Harold's Store]
Sonya Mitchell: So I saw Callum's name on the guide dog registry eh, I couldn't believe it. I just had to see if it was the same. And then there you were. He was so charming and funny. You made it hard to stay away. I love you. Both of you. and I kept thinking, that you know I can do this. We can be a family and I can make up for what I did.
Jarrod "Toadfish/Toadie" Rebecchi: By lying to him?
Sonya: Would it have made him happy to know who I was? I know how much I hurt him. When he told me he wanted to find me to tell me how much he hated me... I never wanted him to look at me like that.
Toadie: Then you shouldn't have done what you did.
Sonya: I know, I know but please if this, I just need you to understand I know it's gonna take time. Please, Toadie.
Toadie: [calmly] I need to look after my son... and that means protecting him.
Sonya: Jarrod...
Toadie: I'm going to stay with him at the hospital tonight, but when I get back tomorrow, I want you gone.
Sonya: [shellshocked] Don't do this.
Toadie: Pack your bags and get out of the house. I never want to see you again.

Jim Robinson: Twenty-five years and you still haven't learned.
Paul: Oh God am I... am I?
Jim: No, you're not dead.
Paul: What the... Dad, how are you here? You know I am huh, [exasperated] It's so good to see you dad. I missed you so much.
Jim: I tried to teach you right from wrong son, but no, you always had a mind of your own.
Paul: Oh Dad I know it looks bad.
Jim: You killed a man once before.
Paul: I was sick, Dad, I had a brain tumor.
Jim: And what's your excuse this time? Tossing your enemies into the bush? Covering your tracks?
Paul: I didn't do this for me, Dad, I did this for my own son, Leo. That's right you never met him, or his brother David. They're good kids. Really good kids. Oh and Amy, she's back in my life too.
Jim: And these are the doubts you wanted set for them? How long before you drive them away? Cameron is dead, Robert's in jail, and Amy and Andrew on the other side of the world. How many wives have you had?

Paul: [sees bauble image fade] Dad? Dad, don't go!
