When good-doer Matt Reilly gets put up in court, the town tries to keep him out of gaol. Laura and Sergeant Gray suspect something is going on and race to uncover it. Bob sets out to impress some Federal Parliamentarians while Jack arrives in town for Rupert's birthday. Laura, sick and tired of Angus' feelings, asks him for a sign when she does something wrong in court. After the truth about Matt is revealed, the town come together to stop the law from interfering with Jack and Rupert's time together. The local pool tournament winners end up being them, beating Bob and Craig - the entire town (sans Meredith and Laura) run down the street in their underwear as a defeat dance. Bob's chance at Federal Parliament goes down the drain.
