Scott returned in February 1986, he was initially thought to have been found dead but it was someone else who had stolen Scott's wallet. 17 year old Scott settled back into life in Ramsay Street and went back to Erinsborough High. In April 1986 he saw a young girl trying to climb in through a window at No 24 Ramsay Street. Scott saw her and accosted her, he pulled her back. She then smacked him on the cheek. Madge Mitchell came round and was surprised to see her daughter Charlene Mitchell. Charlene was simply trying to get into her uncle Max Ramsay's house. Scott was still at school and a bond formed between him and Charlene. One time in May 1986 Scott wanted to take things to the next level so Charlene asked Clive Gibbons for a prescription for the pill but Clive was not practising at the time. Also, Clive did not know Scott was the said boyfriend of Charlene. Scott sneakily asked his brother Paul for a key to Lassiters Hotel and said he wanted to study quietly. Mike Young and Nikki Dennison told Scott's dad Jim that he had gone to Lassiters and taken Charlene with him. While on the hotel bed, Charlene admitted that she was not a virgin and she had a previous boyfriend. Scott stormed out. He later admitted he went to a hotel room but nothing happened.

Scott and Charlene wanted this big romance but were always being scrutinised by Scott's father Jim Robinson and Charlene's mother Madge Mitchell. In July 1986 Scott, Mike and Clive went to Manly, Sydney. Charlene followed them after another row with her mother. In December 1986, Scott was involved in a car accident and he thought he would never walk again but he made a full recovery. In June 1987, after dating for over a year, Scott proposed to Charlene. They had the wedding of the year in July 1987. They then went on honeymoon.

Cracks begun to appear in their marriage soon after when Jane Harris helped him retake his HSC exams. They even kiss and Charlene disowns Scott but Jane talks her round. Soon after, Charlene takes driving lessons from Steve Fisher and he makes advances towards her. In July 1988, Charlene goes to Brisbane to start her apprenticeship and her and Scott are apart quite a lot as he is in Erinsborough and she in Brisbane. He goes to visit her a lot. In May 1989, Scott befriends Poppy Skouros when they meet while studying. She makes advances towards him but he backs off. She has a row with her parents and Harold and Madge catch her cuddling. Madge says she is going to phone Charlene but they talk her round. Poppy then leaves for Greece. Scott decides there is nothing left for him in Erinsborough now, and wants to join Charlene up in Brisbane so he decides to move to Brisbane for good.
