Stan and Jill see David in reception and David asks them how there meal was.  Stan says he doesn't know because he didn't have any as he is on a diet.  "From where I'm standing you look as if you could do with some jogging yourself," Stan tells David.  He asks David if he would like to come jogging with him and Denis.  He shows David some brochures on exercise machines.  At that moment Vera Downend comes into reception and asks David if he could go to the office to attend to some paper work.  David and Vera leave reception together.
David and Vera go into the office and David puts the papers which need signing onto Kate Hamilton's desk.  "I thought you wanted to do them now," says Vera.  "Vera.  Have you ever been saved by a bell?" asks David.  "Yes," answers Vera.  "Well, just now.  You were the bell.  Stan is on a keep fit kick and he wanted me to join him in some jogging," says David, and Vera giggles.
Muriel Baines tells Jim that the hospital rang and they want him to go into hospital tomorrow.
Mr Chaudri arrives at the motel to pick Meena up and meets Sharon Metcalfe again.  He invites her to have dinner at their home but Sharon tells him that she was going to have dinner with Denis Harper on that day.  "Well why not bring him along too," says Mr Chaudri.
Stan goes to the motel office where he chats with Sandy.  Stan asks where everyone is and Sandy tells him that David and Kate are moving into the cottage today.  "Yes, that's a cosy little set-up," says Stan.  Sandy says it's all quite decent and David just wants someone to cook and do the housework.

Jim Baines goes into hospital.
David asks Max Lorimer if he thinks Lorelei Masefield will write an article on the motel and Max says probably not thanks to Winnie Plumtree.  "Let sleeping dogs lie," says David.  "Yes, especially if they're bitches like this one," says Max.
Lucy Hamilton prepares for her french lesson woth Richard Lord.  He arrives and Lucy suggests they work in the garden as it's such a lovely day, but Richard Lord says no because there are too many distractions.  He tells Lucy that he has been reading some of her essays and her writing is very mature.  "Perhaps that's why I prefer more mature company," says Lucy.  Lucy puts on some french music.  "All the sixth formers call me Richard so why don't you call me Richard", suggests Richard.  "Okay Richard," says Lucy.
