a meeting which he has to go to. Stan phones Jill and tells her that he has to go to a meeting but that Anthony is on
his way to the house.
David discusses the restaurant takings with Meg and says it isn't paying its way. He points out that Max Lorimer
is costing them more than anyone else.
Kate Hamilton arrives home and finds the flowers that Toni Ross bought her in a bucket on the floor. Kate asks Lucy
if she was rude to Toni and Lucy says she doesn't like Toni Ross coming to the cottage. "She only came as an excuse
to get into David's good books. Everyone knows how fond you are of David," says Lucy. "Lucy, there is nothing
between David and me and there never will be. Toni is a very nice person and I don't want her upset. Do you hear,"
says Kate. "Yes but..." begins Lucy. "The subject is closed," says Kate firmly.
Anthony arrives at Chimney's and Jill tells him that Stan has had to go to an important business meeting with B.J. Thornton,

Meg says she is sorry but she has to give him a month's notice.
Jill tells Anthony that she can't bring herself to sleep in the same room as Stan and she is sleeping in the spare
room, using the sleeping pills as an excuse. "He knows. I know he does. He's just waiting for me to tell
him. Perhaps that's the answer; perhaps he should be told," says Jill. Anthony tells her that wouldn't be a good
idea. Stan arrives home.
Max Lorimer buys Jane Smith, Diane Parker and Vera Downend a drink and tells them that he is leaving. He says he

she doesn't want to buy the boat and that she is glad to be living on dry land.

for the job has just phoned to turn down the job because he has been offered more money elsewhere.
Anthony Mortimer leaves Chimney's after having dinner with Stan and Jill. Once he has gone Stan asks Jill how long
she is going to sleep in the spare room.
Meg Mortimer comes out of the kitchen looking ill and Jane Smith notices.
