Jill receives a call from Stan who is in Hamburg and he tells her that he is going to be in Hamburg for a while longer.  Jill tells their au pair Ingrid.  "Perhaps you'll find someone to make the waiting easier, like Mr Mortimer," says Ingrid.  "Oh don't say such stupid things," shouts Jill.  "I am sorry.  I did not mean it," says Ingrid.
Vera tells Diane that things just happened between her and Max Lorimer.  "Well that's pretty cheap.  And the worst thing is that this all went on behind my back," says Diane.  "I've got three things to say to you.  One, good luck, and the other two, goodnight and goodbye," shouts Diane and tries to open the door.  The door jams, and Vera opens it for her.  "There you are madame," says Vera.  "Get knotted," says Diane and storms out, slamming the door.
