Anne Powell goes to Bob's rented house and tells him that she is here to collect some of her things.
Mr Booth brings Shughie some bagpipes and Shughie says he will play them at the New Year's Eve party.
Bob Powell unwraps a parcel containing some books and pours himself a drink, which he knocks over.  He picks up an LP record and tries to get it out of its sleeve.  Impatiently he throws it to the floor.  He phones the motel but gets a wrong number.  He tries again and this time gets through to David Hunter.  Bob asks him to come over and join him for a drink but David tells him that he has already refused one invitation that evening because he has a lot of work to do.  Bob slams the phone down.
In the motel reception everyone is enjoying the New Year's Eve party.  Shughie McFee makes his entrance playing his bagpipes and wearing his kilt.  His playing is surprisingly good and Mr Booth thinks that he has underestimated him, until he goes into the kitchen.  There he finds a cassette tape recorder, so he switches it off.  Shughie is left standing blowing into his bagpipes with no sound coming out.
