Rick again asks Tony Moran to come in on the business deal, and Tony says he wants a written guarantee from Harry Zimmerman.
Rick says that would take ages, so Tony declines the offer. "Some people were born with a silver spoon in their
mouth, with you I think it was an I.O.U." says Tony. "What am I going to do?" asks Rick. "Well, you've got a choice.
You either stick it out, or cut and run," advises Tony.

says and hands David a cheque. "It's only £50," she adds. "Kate, I can't accept this," says David. "You
don't have to pay it back," he adds and tears the cheque up. "David that was silly," says Kate, raising her voice.
"Kate. I am not having you pay back that money. So just forget it," says David. "But someone has to," says
Kate, loudly. At that moment Meg comes into the office and hears their raised voices. "Oh I'm sorry," she says
and makes to leave. "No please Meg. My husband has left the country with £3000 that belongs to David," Kate explains.
"There's no need to involve Meg," says David. "I intend to pay that money back and if I have to have more money I'll
find another job," says Kate. "That's rediculous," says David. "It would be a great help if you agreed," says
