Hugh gets a running start to his day when a FIFO worker named Jazz goes on a meth-fuelled psychotic break outside the hospital, and ends up chopping off part of his penis. And that's not the only thing thrown his way — Aoife, tells him she loves him… and gives him 24 hours to say it back.

Meanwhile, Meryl prepares to unveil her latest contribution to this town — a large statue of a wine bottle and grapes, with an unfortunate resemblance to something else. Gossip soon spreads throughout the town, as Meryl's work becomes famous for entirely the wrong reasons.

Back at the hospital, Hugh discovers a cancer trial that's having positive results, and he pulls a few strings to get Joey admitted. But while on a trip to the mines, he and Penny get diverted and end up having to stay overnight in a small farm house. While there, Penny and Hugh have a bonding moment — that is, until she finds out that Hugh's been sleeping with her best nurse. Hugh denies that he'll leave Aoife broken-hearted, but on his return, a serious conversation between the two ends their relationship for good.
