Kevin Banks receives a phone call in response to his advertisement.  Glenda arrives home and gives Kevin 70 to pay for the van.  She tells him that she doesn't want them owing any money.  Kevin tells Glenda that a Mr Tomlinson phoned and he might have a job for him turning an old fire station into a restaurant.  "That'll be a big job," says Glenda.  "If he gives it to me I'll do it," says Kevin.  "Doesn't it make you shake inside though?" asks Glenda.  "Yeah, a bit.  Not nerves.  Excitement.  It's what I want," says Kevin.
Diane Hunter goes into the motel office and finds it empty.  Gilbert Latham comes in and tells her that he has taken over the recording studio in the basement and is going to convert it into a photographic studio.  He tells her that he has to get everything ready for tonight.  Diane tells him that she isn't wearing that silly costume again.  Gilbert tells her that he has arranged it with Miranda Pollard and he can't back down now.
David Hunter arrives home and kisses Barbara.  Barbara hands him a package and David asks what he has done to deserve this.  He opens the package and finds a cashmir jumper.  He takes his jacket off and tries it on.  He asks Barbara if she is happy.  Barbara tells David that Adam told her that the rift between him and Meg was getting wider.  David says maybe, but it will pass.
