Josie Russell: Irene?
Irene Roberts: Eh?
Josie Russell: Could you get Tasha to sit down and talk to me, please?
[Irene scoffs]
Josie Russell: I just want her to realise that this whole resort thing isn't personal, it's just a job.
Irene Roberts: Yeah, well I'm sorry, but I can't help you.
Josie Russell: You can't or you won't?
Irene Roberts: Both. You know, even if I wanted to, which I don't, there's no way Tasha's going to listen to anything you have to say.

One of the best TV shows ever made!
21 November 2000 | by (Skellefteå, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Home and Away is definitely my favorite TV show. There are not many shows made that compares to this one. It´s a great show with interesting storylines, good actors and a good script. There is not much more to add, really...

Home and Away is definitely the best Australian show ever made, and even counting shows from all countries, it´s still one of the very best. I can definitely recommend you all to watch this.

Since I live in Scandinavia, we are a couple of years behind Australia in the airings so I haven´t seen the last couple of years of the Australian productions, plus that the stations here skipped a number of episodes in the beginning, but the 600 or so episodes that I have seen has been great!
