Tony Moran arrives at the motel and David asks him if he knows Rick Hamilton well.  "He's offered me a deal.  Can you see any reason why I shouldn't go in for it?" asks David.  "Yes, a million," says Tony.  "In what way has this got anything to do with Kate?" asks Tony.  "If it wasn't for Kate I wouldn't be considering it," replies David.  David asks Tony what he would do and Tony says he would give it a try.

As soon as Mr Whelp is out of sight, Diane rushes into the kitchen and emerges with a bucket and broom.  She is just about to rush out to the chalets when mr Black comes into reception and asks her where Mr Whelp is.  Diane tells him that he had to go out suddenly.  Mr Black sits down in his usual place in reception. 
Diane phones through to Meg who is still in the office with David.  As the phone buzzes David reaches for it, but Meg picks it up before he does.  "Your bill is ready as requested sir," says Diane.  "Ok Diane.  I'll be there right away," says Meg and is about to leave but David puts a hand on her shoulder.  "Oh no you don't.  You're going to make that phone call...now," he says.   
A few minutes Meg joins Diane in reception.  "Have you heard Mrs Mortimer.  Mr Warner Blyth has been seen in the cafeteria," says Diane loudly.  Mr Black looks up.  "Yes, well hand me that key will you, and the bill next to it," says Meg.  Diane hands them to Meg, watched closely by Mr Black.  Meg walks away.  "Mrs Mortimer, where will you be if you're wanted?" asks Diane.  "In the cafeteria," answers Meg, and leaves reception.
Mr Black rushes up to the reception desk.  "Alright.  What was that key for?" he asks Diane.  "Well that's just it you see.  That was to the swimming pool changing rooms.  They're closed," says Diane.  "Thanks," says Mr Black and rushes out.
