Deb was pondering the impending series finale of the Bananas, and what it should entail. She wrote this fantastic synopsis--
Episode 153: The Wedding Episode
The episode begins
with B2 receiving an unexpected job offer in Paris. Although B2 is initially
excited that his career is finally taking off, he brought down to earth with a
thud when B1 refuses to go with him. The two bananas have a fight and B2 storms
off vowing never to speak to B1 again.
Meanwhile, Morgan is finally
realising that Amy is more than just a good friend to him. He tries to talk
with her about it but she misunderstands him and instead reveals that she has a
crush on Charlie. Morgan decides not to say anymore and leaves without telling
Amy how he really feels.

when he collapses while driving Lulu to a dance lesson. Lulu is seriously
injured and both characters are rushed to the hospital. Amy is shopping in
Rat's store when Rat gets a call from the hospital to say that one of the
teddies has been seriously injured in a car crash and is asking for Amy. Amy,
not knowing if the victim is Morgan or Lulu, rushes to the hospital. On the
way, she realises her true feelings are not for Charlie but for Morgan. Will
she make it in time to tell him how she really feels?
Morgan also hears
about the crash and rushes to the hospital. Both teddies, desperate to see if
the other will survive, find each other outside the door to Lulu's room.
Suddenly realizing they both feel the same way, Morgan proposes and Amy
accepts. Lulu is overjoyed to see both her friends and, upon hearing the
wonderful news of their engagement, makes an immediate miraculous recovery so
that she can start planning the wedding.
Both B1 and B2 are invited to
the wedding but concern is mounting about the seating arrangement given that the
two bananas are no longer on speaking terms. Pedro tries to intervene and sort
it out but both bananas are adamant that the other banana has no idea how they
are thinking. B2's plane leaves for Paris the day after the wedding. Will
there be a chance for them to make up before B2 leaves forever?
of the wedding is fraught with hilarious mix-ups. Morgan gets lost and then
stuck in a tree. Charlie invents a bear-retrieval machine that can save Morgan
but it needs two people to operate it. No one is brave enough to man the
experimental machine until..... the bananas both realize that they've been
thinking the same thing. It's Groom-bear rescuing time!
to rescue Morgan reminds the Bananas of all the good times they've had together
solving problems. B2 asks B1 to forgive him for applying for the job without
talking it over with him first. B1 admits that he was jealous of B2's success
and that this had clouded his judgment. He encourages B2 to take the job and
pursue his dreams. The Bananas are friends again...just in time for everyone to
go to the wedding!
Morgan and Amy's wedding is beautiful and all of
Cuddlestown is there to see it. Afterwards, at the reception, B1 and B2 give a
hilarious speech recounting all of the great moments of Cuddlestown history. At
the end, B1 announces that he's decided he's going to Paris too! B2 can't do
The next day, all of Cuddlestown turns out to wave the
Bananas goodbye. Although they are leaving for good, they know Cuddlestown is
more than just a location - it's a destination in your heart. Awwwwwh. As the
plane takes off, the camera pans back to the crowd waving goodbye. What's
that? At the back? Could that be Charlie with his arm around Lulu?! Well, who
Thanks Deb for that golden nugget of potential Australian television goodness! Actually, I can now reveal to you the real ending, though you musn't speak of this to anyone. Put it in the vault. It's really quite simple really, but it may knock clean off your proverbial socks. Ready for it?
There is no B2.
There never has been a B2. B2 is the Tyler Durden of Cuddlestown, a mere figment of the deranged mind of B1. Do you think it's easy growing up as a lone piece of talking fruit who refuses to get out of his jarmies each day? Consider the ridicule. No, to survive the harsh badlands of C-town, B1 invented a friend. A very close friend. when ever in a scrape, he could defer to his alter ego. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? And funnily enough, he always was.
Anyway, I know you will have myriad questions. But I've already said too much. You will have to keep watching. And brace yourself for the Biggest. Climax. In. Australian. Television. History.
