She cannot figure it out at first. She even resorts to shaking the machine when a coin gets stuck. She shakes the machine and it then works. Pippa confesses about when Danny asked her to help him kill himself. Tom is quite angry with Danny. Tom suggests to Danny that he comes back with them to Summer Bay.
