At the motel David signs some cheques and Meg asks him to sign a few more because they are never sure when he is going to be at the motel.  David says he is only at the Coach House, not outer Mongolia.

Ron Brownlow asks Arthur if he could lend him some money.  Arthur asks Ron if he was with Iris Scott last night, and says yes.  Arthur tells him that he should have more consideration for his parents, he has been brought up with certain standards.  Arthur says Iris is doing this to get back at them .  Ron tells Arthur that he hasn't considered his feelings, and this is not a casual thing for him or Iris.  He says all he is asking for is a bit of tolerance.  Kath tells Arthur that they have to make some sort of compromise or they will lose Rone.

James Corbett joins Barbara Hunter in the sitting room and she asks him why he moved out of the Coach House.  James tells her that it was upsetting David but Barbara says that's nonsense, David likes him.  She tells him that he is one of her dearest friends, but James says that's not the reason she wanted him here.  He says she wants him as a witness to back her up.  James Corbett tells Barbara that the break up of a marriage she wrote about in her book is not imagination, it's happening to her.  "You drew from life.  I'm not saying it's his fault or your fault," says James. 
Barbara tells James Corbett that David is going through a diffcult time.  James tells her that marrying David Hunter was the worst thing she ever did.  "It's going to take time to get you out of it.  But don't worry, we will," says James.  "No," says Barbara.  James tells her that he felt the hostility between her and David.  He says David has to be the dominant partner and they are incompatable.  Barbara tells James that she just wants to finish this book and not discuss her private life.
