and Jill are taking Sarah Jane to America. "I'm taking Jill with me for one reason, and it's selfish. I love her,"

Sharon tells Stan that Ferguson's want to make an appointment to see him. Stan tells her that the acting manager
will have to sort that out. Sharon asks Stan if he has considered Jim for the job as acting manager and Stan tells her
that he has already written to Dudley Scrivens so it is out of his hands now.
At the cottage Rick Hamilton takes Kate around the waist but she breaks free. She says they have been separated
for too long.
Stan shows Ingrid Larson a letter from his solicitors saying that it isn't a good idea for them both to be living in
the same house. Ingrid says she will move out if he wants her to, but Stan says it isn't worth it now because he will
be in Germany for three months.
Lucy arrives back at the cottage and asks her mother what she and her father did last night. Kate says they talked.

let one evening reminiscing make any difference.
Sandy tells Lynne that her parents are coming to the motel for a few days and he might be able to persuade them that
he isn't such a dead loss after all.
At Chimney's Stan Harvey opens his heart to Ingrid Larson. He says he never wanted a posh house. "It
was what Jill wanted, so I had it," he says. "You still love her don't you," says Ingrid. Stan kisses her.
"See how easy it is. If you love her, tell her," says Ingrid.
