David tells Barbara that he wants to check something and excuses himself. He wanders across reception. Jill
tells Barbara that it's time something nice happened to David. "I'm very happy for you both," she tells Barbara.
David joins Meg at the reception desk. "I remember something about a booking. Did they ever ..." he

Tish Hope is on duty at the reception desk when she looks up and see's Chris Hunter walking into the motel. Tish
asks him if he wants her to let his father know that he is here, or does he want to surprise him. "You'd better tell
him. I think he's got quite a few surprises in store," says Chris.
Tish goes to find David Hunter whilst Chris waits in reception. David comes out from the kitchen and goes over
to Chris, smiling. "Chris. It's good to see you," he says, walking towards his son with his hand extended
to shake Chris's hand. Chris keeps both hands in his pockets. "What's the matter?" asks David. "You stand
there and ask what's the matter. I want to talk to you right away. You've got a hell of a lot to answer for,"
David and Chris go into the office. Chris says his mother wanted to die because of him. ""Mum said you were
having a ding dong with someone called Barbara," says Chris. "It's the most important thing that's happened to me,"
says David. "For how long?" asks Chris. "For good," answers David. There is a knock at the door and Barbara
comes in, but on seeing David with Chris she says she'll come back later. David tells her to come in. "I'd like
you to meet my son," says David. "Hello Chris," says Barbara. Chris doesn't answer. "We're getting
married," says David. "When?" asks Chris. "In the summer," replies David. "Congratulations," says Chris
David tells Chris that he and Barbara are going to the West Indies tomorrow. "Have a good time," says Chris and
walks out. "Good looking boy, your son," says Barbara. ""With a bit of encouragment I could grow to hate
him," she says, and David stares at her.
Jill asks Adam if he is seriously considering marrying Miranda Pollard just to secure a business deal. Adam says
it's the biggest business deal of his life and he can't just dismiss it. Jill says surely it can't be that important.

says she is fond of him, and doesn't want to see him make a fool of himself. "It's nothing to me really," she says,
but Diane is not convinced.
Chris tells David that Rosemary wants to see him, but David says he doesn't think it's a good idea.
Tish Hope tells David that a woman in one of the chalets has been complaining about the linen in her chalet. She
says what they need is a housekeeper to take care of things like that. David says if she thinks so they'll advertise
Barbara Brady joins David in the office and tells him off for working when he should be taking things easy. David
tells her that he has had a row with Chris. He tells Barbara that Chris thinks Rosemary tried to kill herself because
of him. "You told him the turht didn't you?" asks Barbara. David looks down and Barbara tells him that it's time
he stopped protecting Chris.
David tells Barbara that he is going to have to cancel their holiday for the time being. "Because of Chris?" asks
Barbara. David says Chris is his son and he can't leave right now. "I think you're backing out," says Barbara,
turning her back on David. David walks up to her. "April the 9th," he says. Barbara turns to face him.
"It is open. I've checked. Will an easter wedding suit you?" asks David. Barbara hugs him. "So April
the 9th it is then," says David.
Barbara tells David that if he won't tell Chris what really happened then why aren't they going on holiday. David
says he will tell Chris but he has to find the right moment. David says Chris needs him more than he realises.
"You're a good father," says Barbara. "Chris wouldn't agree with you," says David. "he's an ungrateful son," says
Sandy tells Jill that Chris Hunter has arrived at the motel and he dodn't give a date of departure. "Chris and
Rosemary. You know if David's not careful he's going to lose his future, chasing after his past," says Jill.
Sandy goes into the office where David is working. Sandy advances towards the desk on his crutches and David gets
up from behind the desk to help him. Sandy sits in the chair and hands his crutches to David, who stands looking uncomfortable.
David asks him if he has any advice for him. "Like take it easy," says David, with irony. Sandy tells David that
he might think about Barbara, she is worried about him. "She needs a holiday," Sandy tells him. "She'll get one,
in four weeks, after the wedding," says David. "You've set the date then?" asks Sandy."Yes, didn't Barbara tells you?"
asks David. "No, it must have slipped her mind," says Sandy, pointedly.
