The following day Douglas Brady asks the receptionist to make up his bill, and he tells David and Barbara Hunter that he is leaving tomorrow.  David asks him to come into the office.  Douglas tells David and Barbara that his and Lisa Walter's engagement is off, and he will be going to South Africa alone.

Sid Hooper gives Mavis a present, some glass dishes.  Ken Sands corners Sid and says he has seen those dishes before.  "One free with every five gallons," says Ken Sands.
Mavis Hooper tells Joe MacDonald that she doesn't know what happened to his sandwishes this morning.  Joe says it's alright, he came back to the house to fetch them.  "That's when I saw...." he says.  Mavis guesses that he saw the birthday card.  Joe admits that he did, and he tells her that Sid was really upset about forgetting.
