Doug tells David that Kevin needs a good belting. David tells
his father that he should have learnt something in twenty years
about interfering - he adds that Doug nearly ruined his
life by keeping him and Patricia apart. David goes into Kevin's
room and tells his son that Doug is off his trolley. Kevin says
he and Lynn were just mucking around. David tells his father that
he owes Kevin an apology, but Doug won't apologise, and he tells
his son that if he's not careful, Kevin and Susan will end up
like John. After further argument, Doug says he's leaving. Beryl
tries to persuade him to stay, and she tells him that he upset
David by bringing up the subject of Patricia. Doug tells Beryl
that David will have to apologise to him; he leaves the house
as David sits and watches tennis on television.
Bill and Susan check into their honeymoon hotel. They are staying
in a very plush room, and Bill says they'll get their money's
Angela returns home from a game of tennis. Patricia and Gordon
are getting ready to go to a social gathering, and as Angela goes
upstairs to prepare to join them, Patricia tells her husband that
her daughter is looking more cheerful. When Angela comes back
downstairs, Gordon tells her she doesn't have to come if she doesn't
want to (he says he'll sort it out with Patricia) but Angela decides
she does want to go.
At the boarding house, Fiona tells Jill that she hasn't told
"Scott" about the baby he's supposed to be fathering
and adds that he seems to be losing interest in Angela anyway.
Fiona states that if she's any judge, there won't be any more
contact from Ms. Hamilton because she's too proud.
After the party, Angela is tired, but she says she enjoyed herself.
Patricia tells Gordon the night was perfect and Angela had a good
time - she is particuarly pleased that her daughter spent all
her time with Simon Armstrong. Patricia says she and Gordon should
throw a party and invite Simon and his mother as guests. She tells
her husband that she'd like to see Angela and Simon get together,
but Gordon says Angela was just acting at the party and she's
not really interested in Simon.
Beryl tells David that he should talk to Kevin because he's
hurting about John. She says the kids need their father, but David
retorts that his son didn't look like he wanted to talk, so he'd
Jill wakes up "Scott" with breakfast in bed. She reminds
him that it's his last day of freedom before he starts the job
Fiona has lined up for him as a brickie's labourer, so he suggests
they go to the beach. While there, John tries to find out a bit
about Jill, asking her how long she has lodged at Fiona's. But
Jill just says, "A while," and makes it clear that she
doesn't want to talk.
Angela is on her way out when she is stopped by Patricia, who
wants to show her the guest list she's drawn up for the party.
Angela's not really interested, though. Gordon tells Patricia
he thinks Angela is going to Manly - and this is indeed the case.
She pulls up at the beach in her car and gets out. She watches
"Scott" toweling himself and starts walking towards
him, when all-of-a-sudden, Jill runs towards him with two ice
creams. Angela stops in her tracks and goes to turn back, but
she is suddenly spotted by John who chases after her. Angela tells
"Scott" she knows all about the baby. "Scott"
denies it, but Angela says Fiona told her. John is annoyed and
tells Jill that Fiona had no right to lie. Jill tells "Scott"
that Fiona did him a favour. They get back to the boarding house,
and John goes into Fiona's room to await her return.
Angela goes back to Dural and tells her parents what happened.
Patricia wants to know what exactly is going on, as she has been
left in the dark. Gordon tells her, "Later," and he
escorts his daughter to his office, where Angela tells him that
she just wanted to sort things out with "Scott". Angela
tells her father it's alright for him to tell Patricia what's
Bill and Susan are in bed with the television on but the sound
turned down. Bill doesn't want to watch TV, and flicks round the
channels to see if there's anything else on. On one channel, he
suddenly sees himself from when he abused the reporter who turned
up at the Palmer house on the day of the wedding. Horrified, he
quickly turns the set off before Susan notices.
Kevin asks Beryl about David and Doug, saying, "There's
more to it, isn't there?" He wants to know why he can't be
told about John's real mum. Beryl says there are some things that
David just cannot talk about. Later, Beryl tells her husband that
Kevin's been asking questions again and adds that they should
have told the kids when they were younger. Beryl says John was
entitled to the truth about his mother, and adds that if David
keeps ignoring Kevin's questions, they might lose him, too.
Patricia tries to have a heart-to-heart with Angela, and apologises
for being insensitive earlier. She tells her daughter that she
could see what was going to happen with "Scott" because
she has lived a lot longer than her daughter, and knows what it's
like to fall in love with someone totally wrong for you.
At the boarding house, John confronts Fiona and says he'll ring
Angela and tell her the pregnancy is a lie. He's very angry that
Fiona lied to Angela, and says he's going to tell her he loves
her. Fiona says he can't do that as there's something he doesn't
know. She tells John that she's done everything to avoid it, but
she's got to tell the truth - John can't go on with the liaison,
because Angela Hamilton is his sister...
