George and Slyvia McClusky tell Jane Smith that they are going to stay at the motel.  George McClusky asks Jane if he is correct in saying that Stan Harvey is married to Mrs Mortimer's daughter, and Jane says he is.  "What are you up to?" asks Slyvia McClusky.  "Just following a hunch," says George.  "You might be wrong," says Slyvia.  "Not this time.  All the pointers are right," says George.

Vicky Lambert tells Sandy that she is Betty Lambert's daughter.  Sandy remembers meeting Betty Lambert when she was a guest at the motel, and tells Vicky that him and her mother talked about a lot of different things.  "And you bought her one drink, then another, and another, then told her what to do with her life.  It wasn't Hunter, it was you," says Vicky.  As a result of Sandy's advice, Betty Lambert left her husband, and  Vicky Lambert now blames Sandy for causing the break up of her parents marriage. 
Bill Warren returns home and he and Avis decide to  leave the motel.

David Hunter sits alone in his flat looking at photos of Rosemary and Chris and also photos of Kelly.  David tells Sandy that he wants some excitement.  He asks Carney what he does to take his mind off things and Carney says he has the occasional drink.  David says if you drink whilst you're with a crowd of people then you feel great, but if you drink alone then you only get depressed.
Benny and Ed Lawton have a row and Benny runs away from the farm.  He goes to stay with Carney.
Vicky Lambert has a drink with David in the sitting room and she tells him that Sandy won't let her pay her bill.  She says she can pay David without Sandy knowing, but David says he couldn't do that.  "Whose side are you on?" asks Vicky.  "I'm on your side, and I'm on Sandy's side.  And the more I'm on Sandy's side, the more I'm on your side.  So if I let you down I'll let Sandy down.  So if I help you I'll have to tell Sandy what I've done," says David.  "I should never have let you have that drink," says Vicky.
