Archie Gibbs and Bill Warren have a drink at Bill and Avis's flat and they discuss the tricky situation they are in.  Bill says he broke the licensing laws and he has got the motel involved.  He tells Archie that he will have to tell the police that he bought the scotch from somewhere else.  "Don't you understand.  It's not only my job that's at stake, but the motel's reputation," says Bill.  "If I say it was a slip of the tongue then your motel will be out of trouble but what about me?" asks Archie.  Bill says if Avis finds out that he is in trouble with the police she will kill him. 
Avis arrives home at that moment and asks Archie what he is doing here.  "Just came in for a cup of tea," says Archie.  Avis looks at the tins of beer on the table.  "Tea?" she asks.  "Yes.  We couldn't find any tea so we had to make do with pale ale," says Bill.  Archie leaves and Avis demands an explanation.  "What were the two of you arguing about when I came in?" she asks.  Bill makes up some story about Archie teaching him how to tickle trout.  Avis tells Bill that Mr Hunter wants to see him tomorrow morning.  "Does he?" asks Bill.  "He was asking if Archie Gibbs was a friend of yours.  What does he want Bill?" asks Avis.  "Well you see I was asking Mr Gibbs to teach me how to tickle trout because I can show Mr Hunter.  Because it's Mr Hunter who wants to know how to tickle trout," says Bill.  Avis says she got the impression it was something serious.
The following morning Avis reminds Bill about his appointment with Mr Hunter.  Bill's hand begins to shake violently, and he tells Avis that he thinks he's coming down with the flu.  Avis tells him to stay in bed and she'll get the doctor, but Bill says he'll be alright.  He asks Avis to ask Archie Gibbs to come and see him.
