Avis Tenneson shows Faye an advert for a flat. They visit the flat together, meet the landlady Mrs Fazakarly, and
decide to take the flat.
Shughie McFee tells David Hunter about his night out. "If I'm not with you today Mr Hunter, you must excuse me.
I didn't get much sleep last night," says Shughie. "Yes, hymn singing does take it out of you doesn't it," laughs David.
"Oh he told you them," says Shughie, looking suspiciously at Sandy. "I wish others wouldn't poke and pry into my business.
There's not much privacy here is there, especially with people like you around," says Shughie, glaring at Sandy and storming
out. "Well, that's put me in my place,"says Sandy. "Serves you right...you shouldn't gossip," says David, grinning.
Faye goes to the flat alone where she meets the landlady's son Sonny Fazakarly. As Faye tries to go up the stairs
Sonny blocks her way, grabs her by the arms and kisses her. Faye slaps him and runs off. She finds Avis at
the motel and tells her that they can't take the flat.
Later that day Avis sees the landlady, Mrs Fazakarly, and tells her that her and Faye have changed their mind
about the flat. "I was expecting you to come here after what your friend did to my Sonny. Making passes at him
like that. If you think you're getting your money back then you're mistaken. That thirty pounds is mine and I'm
keeping it," she says. Avis leaves without bothering to argue.
