Georgina Moran joins Richard Lord in the motel reception, and she tells him that the police are going to re-open the
inquiry into her fathers death. Richard tells her that they expected that. Georgina Moran tells Richard that she
thinks Kate Hamilton is innocent, and now she feels mean and vicious. Richard Lord tells Georgina Moran that he will
tell her something but she must keep the information to herself. He says he can prove that Kate Hamilton didn't
use the company car the night of Tony Moran's death because he was in the car, and he wasn't alone. He says he had a
woman with him and she is willing to come forward.
Ashley Lamont joins Reg and Sharon Metcalfe at Sharon's flat. Ashley pours a glass of wine for his father
and one for himself. Sharon calls from the kitchen and asks what she has done not to deserve a glass of wine.
Ashley Lamont takes a glass and the bottle of wine into the kitchen and pours her a glass. Sharon asks Ashley if
he will do her a favour. "Be nice to him," she says, nodding towards the living room where Reg is sitting. Sharon
kisses Ashley. "What's that?" asks Sharon, drawing away from Ashley. "What?" asks Ashley. "That," says Sharon,
pulling open Ashley's jacket. She takes out a miniture tape recorder from Ashley's inside pocket. Ashley Lamont
shrugs and tells Sharon that it's a new toy he has been experimenting with. "It's swtiched on," says Sharon.
When Reg Lamont has left the flat and Ashley and Sharon are alone, she asks him what he is up to. Ashley tells
her that they have been given the recorders, and says he was playing around with it at the station and must have forgotten
to switch it off. Sharon tells him that in that case he doesn't need the tape. "Rub it off then," says Sharon,
but Ashley says no. "What the hell are you up to?" asks Sharon.

way you feel, you've got them," says Sid Hooper.
The next day Benny finds Sharon Metcalfe in the garage office, and asks her to sign something for Sid. Sharon asks
Benny why Si can't come to her himself, and asks him if it's because of this business they are setting up. Benny tells
Sharon that Sid said that if the idea is good for the garage then it is good for them. Sharon tells Benny that she is
only asking him to think carefully.
Glenda Banks goes to the motel to see Paul Ross about getting her job back, but Paul says he is sorry but she can't come
and go as she pleases, and there is no place for her here. Glenda meets Jill Harvey on her way out. "Hello Glenda.
Have you been trying to get your job back?" asks Jill. "He won't even listen," says Glenda. Jill tells Glenda

used to seeing Richard Lord and Georgina Moran together.
David Hunter comes into the office as Paul Ross leaves. David asks Kate if Paul Ross was bothering her and Kate
says she thinks Paul is in love. "What?" asks David. "With Georgina Moran," says Kate. She says she feels
sorry for Paul because last night he had to serve dinner to the object of his affection whilst she was cruelly enjoying the
attention of another man. "At least he knows where the object of his affection is," says David.
Iris Scott asks Glenda if the motel are looking for any waitresses, and Glenda says Mrs Harvey did mention that they
needed someone in the cafeteria, and behind the bar. Iris asks Glenda who she would need to speak to about a job and
Glenda tells her Shughie McFee. Iris puts her coat on and Glenda says she was lucky to get her old job back. She

Diane Hunter comes into the office carrying a tray with David's lunch. "Not having a proper meal again?" asks Jill.
"Quite proper thank you," says David. Diane puts the tray down on the desk and asks David if Mrs Hunter will be dining
in here or in the restaurant. David tells her that Mrs Hunter won't be coming back tonight. "Oh," says Diane.
"When will she be coming back?" asks Diane. "No set days," replies David. "Days?" asks Diane. "Why, is she
taking..." says Diane, and Jill interupts her, saying that she is trying to persuade David to take Iris Scott on. "Good
luck," says Diane and leaves the office.
David tells Jill that he thought it was generally understood that Barbara wasn't away just for tonight. Jill says
Diane is just concerned, and David says he doesn't want to be the object of concern to anyone except his wife. Jill
asks David if Barbara has phoned him and David says no. Jill says she thought Barbara would have phoned him when she
got to London. "Either I'm going to have this supper..." says David, pointing to the tray. ..."Or this conversation.
The two don't go together. And of the two I would prefer the supper," says David.

Barbara asks if David tried to phone her and Jill says she isn't in a position to keep watch on him, but when she last
saw David he was in a great state of suffering. Barbara says she isn't interested in men who enjoy their suffering.
Jill tells Barbara to put David out of his misery, and says she has made her point.
Barbara tells Jill that she doesn't know how to do what she knows she must do. She says she has got to keep tabs
on David without him knowing it. Jill says she will need a place to stay near the motel where she can keep an eye
on David, and she will need someone to spy on David. Barbara laughs. "Are you suggesting we hire Paul Ross?" asks
Barbara. Jill says why hire Paul Ross when she has got the best spy here. "Me," says Jill.
Reg Lamont goes to the garage office and asks Sid Hooper if he has an ordinance survey map of the area. Sid
gives him a map and Reg Lamont studies it. He tells Sid that a Mr Sadler would like his car serviced and he lives in
a placw which is very difficult to find. Reg asks Joe MacDonald if he could find the house and Joe tells him that Mr
Sadler usually brings his car into the garage. "Ah but not anymore," says Reg. He tells Sid and Joe that they
are going out to fetch the car and bring it back to the garage to be serviced at no extra charge. He puts some leaflets
on the desk and asks Sid to get those to Sharon. He leaves the office.
Sid Hooper looks at the leaflets and tells Joe and Benny that these are leaflets to advertise their new service.
Sid Hooper says this has really ruined their chances of making the business work for them. Joe reminds them that they
have already given in their notice.
