asks David. "What? Oh your pen. You said something about leaving your pen here," says Meg and begins to
search the desk again. David holds up his pen. "I've got it," he says. Meg looks at him. "I'm being
blackmailed," she says. "I see," says David, calmly. Meg stares at him. "Well you don't seem too concerned
yourself," he adds. Meg tells him that Ethel Wisbey is blackmailing her and David asks why. "I can't tell you.

"I don't believe it," says David, after Meg has told him about Philip Warner Blyth and Ethel Wisbey's attempts to blackmail
her. "I told you you wouldn't," says Meg. "I don't mean I don't believe you. But I'm not the one you
have to convince," says David. "What?" asks Meg. "I'm not married to you," says David. Meg assures David
that it was all very innocent.

old phrase. 'I didn't think the gun was loaded.' This time Mrs Mortimer, the gun is loaded," says Miss Wisbey.
P.C. Frank Tyler asks Jackie Barrett out to dinner and she accepts. Diane arrives back at the flat after Frank

think you will," says Simone.
