Vera Downend tells David Hunter and Meg that her and Diane will not be staying at the motel, and David asks her to give him their new address.  "You've already got it.  It's Max Lorimer's place," Vera tells him.  "I thought it was all over between Vera and Max," says David, puzzled.

David and Sandy relax in the sitting room and David says everyone must be talking about him and Toni Ross.  "Gossip bounces off the walls in this place.  Just because I took Toni to dinner once they've already got us engaged, married and sueing for divorce," laughs David.  "They must be talking about you and Lynne too," says David.  Sandy says he would rather not talk about it. 
Seamus Flynn invites himself to dinner at Carney's home but Benny tells him that there is not enough for him.  Seamus tells Benny to go and get some more food from the shops.
