Angela is sitting in the hall at the boarding house when Fiona
and Jill get home. Angela asks if she can stay for the night as
she's left home. Fiona shows Angela to a room, then tells Jill
that they couldn't leave her to roam the streets. She adds that
Angela can't have many friends. Jill says she'll help Angela look
for a place tomorrow. Fiona says Angela needs support.
On the 'phone to Gordon, Patricia reads him the note, and complains
that she doesn't get any help handling Angela. Wayne walks in
and tells his mother that she doesn't have to wait up! Patricia
says Angela has left home and she's concerned, but Wayne just
laughs. Patricia says Angela is confused, but Wayne says he's
had a very nice night, with a very nice lady and couldn't care
less about Angela.
Angela thanks Fiona for letting her stay. Fiona says, "Any
friend of Jill's is a friend of mine." Angela says she couldn't
think of anywhere else to go. Fiona asks if Angela's family know
where she is. Angela says they don't, and Fiona suggests Angela
call them in the morning. Angela makes it clear that she doesn't
want to, and says her family don't care about her anyway.
Patricia gets up in the middle of the night, and pours herself
a drink. She re-reads Angela's note - particularly a part that
says '...the last thing I want is to end up like you.' The next
morning, Gordon says Patricia is over-reacting. Patricia comments
to her husband that his attitude to Angela has changed. Gordon
admits he used to put Angela on a pedestal. Patricia tells Gordon
to consider what Angela has been through recently - the engagement
to Simon and the 'relationship' with John - but Gordon says it
is time Angela fended for herself.
Jill and Angela go apartment-hunting, but Angela can't see anything
good enough for her for under $100 per week. She says she'd like
somewhere comfortable like the boarding house. Jill talks her
into having another look, but without success, and Jill later
tells Fiona that Angela is up-and-down like a yoyo. Fiona says
Angela should stay with her for a while. Angela then
walks in with 'Plan C'. Jill says she got the kitten after it
just wandered in.
Wayne is with Jackie Ingleton on the beach. She is rubbing his
chest, and she says she's glad they met. Wayne says he has a call
to make about a business dinner that night. He goes to a telephone
box and rings Jill, who gives him an unfriendly reception. Wayne
tells Jill he wants to see her and will be round at 6:30pm. He
then hangs up and tells Jackie that he couldn't get out of the
Jill goes and asks Fiona what to do. She says she wants to see
Wayne, even if it's to dump yesterday's leftovers on him. Fiona
says she'll keep Angela out of the way. Jill says Angela hates
Wayne, to which Fiona replies that if Angela saw her brother there,
she'd probably run off again.
At Beryl's parents' place, Susan plays badminton with Beryl's
father, Bob. Beryl watches them, then goes inside and tells her
mother that Susan and her Pop are having a good time. Beryl says
the two of them will head home in a few days. As she plays badminton,
Susan suddenly catches sight of her wedding ring on her finger,
and she realises she's enjoying herself. Suddenly overcome with
guilt, she says to Bob, "Sometimes I forget - not for long,
Susan goes for a walk. Bob tells Beryl that he can't help feeling
sorry for Bill, as well as Susan. Beryl's mother, Aileen, says
Bill got what was coming to him. While walking in the woods, Susan
suddenly hears a gunshot, and sees the shooter picking up a dead
rabbit. She suddenly has a flashback to when Bill killed the rabbit
on their camping trip, and, upset, starts running home, chased
by the concerned shooter. Susan runs past Beryl, who sees her
daughter is distraught. Inside, Susan is crying. She says she's
OK, and is just being silly. She then says she's as bad as Mrs.
Todd. She relates to Beryl the story of her and Bill's camping
trip, and about how John 'phoned on her wedding day to say Bill
was the real murderer. She admits she knew that Bill could have
killed Sam Selmar if he was mad enough, but she couldn't say anything.
Beryl tells Susan that she doesn't hold her accusing John against
her. Susan says she's glad she and Bill had a couple of weeks
together, adding, "I love him so much, mum."
Gordon tells Wayne to be careful of Brian Ingleton, saying he's
been involved in a few shonky deals. Patricia tells Gordon that
they haven't exactly been a raging success as parents. Gordon
suggests he and Patricia go out for dinner, but Patricia's not
in the mood.
Wayne calls at Jill's. She says she should slam the door in
his face, but Wayne says he had a lousy night last night, too.
Jill tells Wayne that Angela is staying at the boarding house.
Wayne says his sister would freak if she knew he was there, and
then adds, "What she doesn't know won't hurt her." Wayne
and Jill kiss.
Over dinner at Dural, Patricia tells Gordon that they didn't
do too badly at Woombai over those few days. The atmosphere between
them is friendly.
Fiona has been teaching Angela to cook. Angela says she hasn't
done any cooking since school, when she and her friends used to
get guys to eat the food - she says they would eat anything, so
much did they like her. Angela thanks Fiona again for letting
her stay, saying she must have appeared to be a spoilt brat when
she first turned up looking for John. Fiona suggests they make
pudding, but she's run out of eggs. Angela offers to go to Jill's
to get some but, knowing Wayne is there, Fiona persuades her to
go to the shops instead.
Wayne and Jill have been making use of Jill's bed again, and
Wayne tickles Jill so that she laughs quite loudly. Angela is
passing Jill's door, and knocks on it, still hoping to avoid a
trip to the shops. Jill tries to stop Wayne answering the door,
but she fails. Angela sees the two of them half-naked and rushes
off. Jill tells Wayne to go home, and she then chases after Angela.
Still in Jill's room, Wayne closes the door and dials a number
on the 'phone. He calls Jackie, tells her that the dinner finished
early, and says he'll pick her up in half an hour. He then sits
on the bed and smiles, looking very pleased with himself...
