Wayne arrives at Jill's with a bottle of wine and a load of takeaway
food! He tells Jill that if she won't come to dinner,
then dinner must come to her! The two of them
enjoy the food, but Jill says she still thinks Wayne's a rat -
but a nice rat! Wayne wants the two of them to go out somewhere
so he can get to know Jill better. He agrees that if Jill still
doesn't like him at the end of the evening, he'll leave her alone.
Jill tells Wayne that she still can't forgive him for dobbing
John in, but she agrees to go for the night out.
John is trying to make a 'phone call, but is interrupted by
Fiona, much to his annoyance, as he wants to be left alone. Fiona
tells John that he's being a pain in the neck, and isn't considering
any else's problems - especially Susan's. Fiona tells John not
to expect any sympathy from her for him doing Patricia's dirty
work. John 'phones Patricia and tells her that he told Angela
to go away, adding that Angela was upset, but she went, and is
on her way home. Patricia says she's very grateful for what John's
done, but John isn't interested, and hangs up abruptly.
Wayne and Jill get back to the boarding house, having had a
good time. Jill asks Wayne if he's trying to get her with 'Plan
A', the laid-back approach. She then asks, "What's Plan B?"
Wayne says, "I stay the night!" to which Jill replies,
At Dural, Patricia tells Wayne that Angela still hasn't 'phoned.
Wayne says Angela is either getting it off with John or she's
been given the brush-off, and she's not likely to call about either.
Patricia comments that Wayne isn't doing much about his future,
but Wayne says he'll wait until Gordon gets back from Woombai.
Next day, Wayne turns up at Jill's with a kitten, saying it's
Plan C! - and that is exactly what Jill decides to call her new
pet! Wayne says he has another cat to show her, which turns out
to be a catamaran at the beach. As Wayne and Jill are getting
on board the boat, another craft sails up to them with some girls
on board who obviously know Wayne. One of them drops her sunglasses
in the sea, and appeals to Wayne to get them for her but he just
gives her the brush-off. Wayne tells Jill to leave her worries
Bill is incarcerated at HM Prison, Pentridge. Susan goes to
see him, and he says he's OK. He then tells his wife not to come
and see him anymore, and says he wants her to get a divorce. He
then asks his wife to leave. Susan goes to Beryl's and cries herself
to sleep. Beryl tells Nora what has happened, and Nora says she'll
go and see her son and sort things out. Nora apologises to Beryl
for hurting John, but Beryl says she doesn't blame Mrs. Todd.
Nora says Bill loves Susan, and doesn't realise what he's doing
John is trying to write a letter to the newspaper, complaining
about an article calling Bill a maniac. John tells Kevin that
Bill is just in prison because of his rotten temper. Kevin, who
knew the article was going to be published, says he doesn't agree
with the content, but does agree to help John with his letter.
At the prison, Nora tells Bill that he's not being fair, and
informs him of her plans to move in with Susan. Bill says he could
get put away for 15 years, and Susan will get used to the divorce
plans. Bill tells Nora that if she moves in, she'll tie Susan
down and stop her meeting someone new. Bill says he's made up
his mind and doesn't want to see Susan again - he loves her, but
it's the only way he can be fair to her.
Nora tells Susan that Bill's right - he wants his wife to live
her own life and not wait for him. Susan says she doesn't understand,
but Nora says, "You will." Beryl tells Susan that Bill
probably thinks he's doing the right thing and Susan can't force
him. Kevin finishes the letter and John signs it. He then suggests
that he and his brother go to the park to bowl some overs.
Fiona is in the kitchen and Kevin tells her they're going out.
The 'phone rings and Fiona answers. It's Patricia, wanting to
speak to John, but Fiona tells her he's gone out. She then says
John hasn't seen Angela, as he sent her packing, just as Patricia
asked. John, who is looking for a stamp, hears the end of the
conversation, but Fiona says it was a call for Beryl. Fiona then
tells John that she's going home. John tries to persuade her to
stay so he can talk to her, but Fiona says John should talk to
his father. John says he can't talk to David about Angela and
Patricia, and he tells Fiona that he'll miss her. Fiona says her
potplants are missing her! John says he'll visit Fiona,
to which she replies, "I'll kill you if you don't!"
When Jill and Wayne get back from the beach, Jill thinks she
looks terrible, as she has a burnt nose. Wayne kisses it better,
but his lips end up meeting Jill's lips. The kitten is asleep
on Jill's bed, but Wayne moves it because the bed is needed for
Fiona gets back to Sydney. In Jill's room, Wayne is half naked
and Jill is also wearing very little. Jill tells Wayne that she
enjoyed last night. Fiona knocks on Jill's door and Jill says
she'll be out shortly. Wayne offers to sneak out the back. Jill
shows Fiona the kitten, saying it's a stray who wandered in. She
says it's a very long story as to why the animal is called "Plan
Beryl is at Susan's when John 'phones to tell her that Bill
wants to see him. Beryl tells Susan that she should move back
into her old room with her family, but Susan doesn't want to.
Beryl suggests the two of them go away for a few days instead,
to see Susan's Nan and Pop. Beryl says Susan will have a nervous
breakdown if she doesn't get away, and she tells her that she
has to leave Bill.
At the prison, Bill apologises to John, saying he loved Susan
so much, that he didn't want to spoil it. Bill says he thought
the police would find out John was innocent and free him. John
says he was angry at Bill once, but now he just thinks Bill is
unlucky. He agrees that Bill is doing the right thing by Susan.
Bill says he wants to stay mates with John. John tells Bill he
forgives him. Bill says it's a pity they can't shake hands. John
puts his hand up against the glass separating the two of them.
From the other side, Bill places his hand on the glass against
John's. It's the closest the two of them can get.
