Kevin Banks goes to John Latchford's chalet and finds Elaine Winter's there alone. She tells Kevin to come
in and that John won't be long. Elaine Winter's offers Kevin coffee and asks if she can help. Kevin tells her
it's about what was discussed last night, the job. He tells her that he discussed it with his wife and they decided
that maybe he had been a bit hasty in his decision, so he thought he could discuss it further with Mr Latchford.
John Latchford arrives in the chalet, and asks Kevin what he can do for him. "Well the thing is, I've had second
thoughts. About what was said last night, you know, about the job," says Kevin. "Really? You, or Glenda?"
asks John Latchford. Kevin looks at him, puzzled. "we had a bit of a chat," says Kevin. "Yes. Bit
of a one-sided affair if I know our Glenda," says John Latchford. Kevin tells John that he has come to apologise and
ask if the offer is still open. "Not many applicants since last night," says John. "In that case, I'd like to
give it a try," says Kevin. John Latchford shakes Kevin's hand.

Jill Chance tells David and Barbara that it would be interesting to know what sort of offer Major International
Hotel s would make for the motel. Barbara says for all they know they could be potential millionaires. David says
it's all academic as they're not selling. Miranda Pollard joins them in the office and thet tell her that they were
just imagining what it would be like to be millionaires.
Miranda tells them that being a millionaire isn't all it's cracked up to be. She tells them that she received a
telex from her father in the Bahamas and he said they have had nothing but tropical storms. David asks her what J. Henry
wanted because he is sure her father didn't send her a telex just to tell her about the weather. Miranda tells them
that J. Henry was responding to a copy of the takeover proposal from Major International Hotels. "He wants us to
accept their offer," she says. "Does he now," smiles David.
David asks Miranda what J. Henry's reasons for accepting the offer are. "He reckons there will never be a better
opportunity. He knows some of the top people at Major International Hotels personally," says Miranda. "I bet he
does," says Barbara. "They can be trusted implicitly," says Miranda. Miranda says J. Henry wants to know what
their intentions are. "No problem," says Jill. "We don't sell, under any circumstances. I've made it quite
clear where my vote lies," she says.
Sid Hooper asks Pete Maguire what Harry means by wanting him to stand guard over him. Pete says he's been a naughty
boy, and Sid says he did hear something. Harry Maguire joins them and asks if everything is alright. "Fine sir,"
replies Pete. "Now don't you ...!" shouts Harry Maguire. Harry Maguire tells Sid Hooper that he has spoken to
Mr Chance and he says there is no problem about him taking time off. Harry tells Sid that he is leaving now. "I'm
not letting you out of my sight Peter," says Harry.
David Hunter goes to the nursing home and asks to see Sarah Alexander. Doctor Armstrong asks David if she could
talk to him. Doctor Armstrong tells David that Mrs Alexander has rejected her baby, and she suspects that she hears
voices. David asks the doctor what is being done for Sarah and the doctor tells him that she has been prescribed drugs,
psychotherapy and they may use ECT. She assures David that the condition will pass.
The nurse shows David into Sarah Alexander's room. "Hello Sarah," says David. "I told them I didn't
want to see you. She said it would be a good idea," says Sarah. David tells Sarah that they must talk about the
baby. "Listen," says Sarah, gazing into mid-air. "I'll do whatever you say of course," she says. "Sara,"
says David, anxiously. "The baby screams all the time. You should hear it, David. Screaming, on and on.
I can't stop it!" says Sarah, her voice rising. "I shouldn't have let you talk me into it. I shouldn't have had
the baby!" says Sarah. "Don't say that," says David.
"What?" asks Sarah, again staring at something only she can see. "You see that tree over there," she says, staring
out of the window. "Yes," replies David. "I don't want anything to do with the baby. I'd like to leave it
over there, under that tree, and let the leaves fall and cover it. Wouldn't that be nice," says Sarah. "If you
don't want the baby..." says David. "I told them over and over. I told Christine. You've met my psychiatrist
haven't you," says Sarah. David says he has and Sarah says they're quite reassuring. "I've told them to put it
out for adoption," says Sarah. "If that's what you want, why not let Barbara and me adopt him," says David. "It
screams all the time, I told you. What would you want with a screaming... " says Sarah.
David tells Sarah that she would know the baby would be safe and happy and that's important. "I don't know what's
important anymore," says Sarah. "Will you think about it?" asks David. "Don't make any decisions yet. No
one will force you to do anything you don't want to do," says David. "Yes, I'll think about it," says Sarah. David
tells Sarah that he must go, but he will come and see her again if she likes. He asks her if she needs anything.
Sarah looks at David. "Our child David. I don't want it," says Sarah. David turns to leave, then turns back
again. He holds out the box of chocolates he had brought for Sarah. Sarah takes the gift. "I'll be alright.
Don't worry David. It's something to get through. I'll be alright," says Sarah.
Miranda Pollard stops Paul Ross in the reception area and asks him if he could think of any reason why J. Henry would
want to see the motel to a huge consortium who want to take them over. Paul tells her that knowing her father
there is probaly a whole host of reasons. Miranda says J. Henry says it would be best for them in the long run.
Paul tells Miranda that if J. Henry says that what he really means is that it would be best for him.
Jill Chance asks David and Barbara if they think they've done enough to put J. Henry Pollard off. The telephone
rings and Jill answers it. She tells David that it is Doctor Wilcox for him. David takes the phone. "Hello
David. It's about what you were asking me. Well I had a word with my colleague at the nursing home. You
do understand I'm unable to pass on any specific information," says James Wilcox. "Why not?" asks David. Doctor
Wilcox tells David that he must know that a doctor can't pass on any information on a patient to a third party," says
James Wilcox. James Wilcox tells David that he shouldn't force a woman in Sarah's condition to make any sort of decision.
