Arthur Brownlow goes to the motel and asks Tish Hope if he could speak to Doris Luke.  Tish tells him that they are very busy but she will fetch Doris.  Shortly after, Doris Luke comes into reception and Arthur thanks her for not saying anything to Kath and Glenda.  He says he would like to have a longer talk with her and asks her if she could come to his house after she has finished work.  He says Kath and Glenda will be out.  Suddenly there is a scream from the kitchen.
The phone rings in the office where David and Meg are working.  "If that's Shughie McFee again, I've changed my name and left the country," Meg tells David.  David laughs and picks up the phone.  "Is it serious?" he asks, and Meg looks at him anxiously.  David explains to Meg that Shughie McFee has tipped a saucepan full of hot water over himself.
Lloyd Munro returns to the cottage and finds Barbara Brady in a thoughtful mood.  He asks her if it is anything to do with John Farnham.  "John's very persistant.  And I suppose I should be flattered," says Barbara.  "Is it David Hunter then?" asks Lloyd.  Barbara looks at him.  "Hit a nerve have I?" asks Lloyd.  "David isn't persistant," says Barbara.
