they send Avis Tenneson to the Jason Hotel because she is unhappy at the motel now that Bill Warren has left.
Lia tells David about moving into the same lodging house as John Farnham. David advises against it, saying that
Farnham has already hurt one girl and he doesn't want to see her get hurt. "I must obey you," says Lia. "Obey
me?" asks David. "Because of what I owe you," says Lia. "You don't owe me anything. Lia, you're an adult.
I'm only asking you to think twice," says David.
Lia see's John Farnham later and tells him that she has changed her mind about moving into the lodging house. John
asks her why she changed her mind. "David told me it wasn't a good idea," says Lia. "David? But why should
he object. Or is it me he objects to," says John Farnham. "David has been so kind to me. There is no
way I could repay his kindness. Is that too much to ask?" says Lia.

John Farnham meets David in reception. "Is this a social visit?" asks David. "No, I want to talk to you,"
answers John. They go through to the office. "I think you know what I've come about. I understand Lia's
decision about the lodging house was a result of your advice," says John. "Well yes. But she made up her own mind.
I merely advised her," says David. "Why did you give her that advice?" asks John. "I didn't want Lia to get
involved," says David. "Oh so you disapprove of me?" asks John. "Let's just say I think your involvements
are far too casual," says Favid. "But how do you know? Oh Faye," says John. "Yes Faye. I don't
want the same thing to happen to Lia," says David.
Bill Warren finds Faye in the office and asks her where Avis is. "She's gone where you won't be able to hurt her,"
Benny finds Josie Welch in the farm kitchen working and listening to music on the radio. She grabs him and
makes him dance with her.
John Farnham finds Faye in the office and asks her for a particular letter. "I keep running into people who don't
like me, like David Hunter and Lia," he says. "Lia? But I thought you and her were..." begins Faye. "Yes
so did I. But I never expected bitterness from you," says John. "What? I don't know what you're talking
about," says Faye. "Yes you do. You told David Hunter that I treated you badly," says John. "I never," says
Faye. "Only you could and would. And now you've succeeded in wrecking things for me and Lia," says John.
"I never went to David Hunter and poured my heart out to him," says Faye, angrily. David comes into the office at that
moment and hears the end of the conversation.
David sends Faye out of the office on an errand. "If you want to accuse my secretary then do it in your own
time. You've no right to accuse Faye of something before you know the truth. She did not come to me and tell me
about you and her," says David. "Then how did you know?" asks John. "It was obvious to all. I don't
like the way you treated Faye. I don't like your involvement with Lia. I disapprove of it and I disapprove
of you," shouts David.
