Matt continues that he knows it seems drastic... John snaps that
there's no way he's doing that to his sister. Matt tells him that
he understands how he feels, and he knows it's morally wrong,
but Angela needs help and John is the only one who can give it.
John snaps that that doesn't say much for Matt, but Matt replies
that Angela needs something, and it's up to him to see she has
that jolt. John asks what Matt will do if Angela's memory doesn't
come back. Matt tells him that if he and Angela make physical
contact, her memory will come back. John looks at Matt
in horror and then says he's not doing it. He storms off.
Outside, John bumps into Angela and Rosie, who are on the verandah,
and he then walks off. Angela immediately asks Rosie what's going
on, but Rosie replies that she can't say anything. Angela asks
why, if John doesn't want to know her, he came there.
Rosie repeats that she can't say anything. At that moment, Matt
comes out and realises Angela has been trying to get information
out of Rosie. He asks to have a talk with Angela inside, and,
as he heads back in, says, "Good girl, Rosie."
In the living room, Matt tells Angela that he's had a chat to
John, and he has a few problems. Angela says she could tell.
Matt explains to her that she and John had problems in their marriage,
and Angela needs to try to relate to him physically.
Angela asks how. Matt replies that he's taking Fiona to the pictures
this evening, and that will leave her and John together. Angela
tells Matt that she wants to remember so much what she and John
meant to each other.
Stephen is at Toorak, and Patricia remarks that it would have
been more simple to 'phone. Stephen replies that he did
try ringing her, but her 'phone has been disconnected. Patricia's
face drops, and she goes to check it. The line is dead. She then
tells Stephen that it's probably a technical fault, but Stephen
replies that he spoke to the operator. Patricia snaps that she
doesn't see why it's any of his business. Stephen replies that
he knows Patricia is used to having money, but if she feels at
a disadvantage with him, then she shouldn't worry about it - he's
been broke too. He continues that people who've had money always
seem to get it back somehow; he was left a fortune,
and he blew it really quickly, but he realised he enjoyed it,
and he made damn sure he soon got back on top - and he enjoys
being wealthy. Patricia smiles at him, and when Stephen then suggests
lunch, she agrees.
In the kitchen at The Terrace, Doug remarks that it's a funny
thing about the other suicide note mentioned in Adam's letter;
where did it get to? Peter says he doesn't know, and Kevin warns
his grandfather that it's not a good idea to talk about it. Rob
comes in and suggests Doug might like to get back to see David.
Doug agrees, adding that he'd better go and start packing, as
he's heading back up-north tomorrow. Kevin asks Peter whether
he wants to come back as well, but he replies that he won't be
the best of company; seeing David would take him too close to
the whole thing. He sadly says his dad must have been at rock
bottom; he wishes he could have seen that.
Outside at Woombai, John tells Rosie that it would be better
if he leaves, and he asks her to go inside and get Fiona to come
out so that he can say goodbye. Realising that he doesn't want
to see Angela, Rosie replies that the girl isn't inside; she's
been out looking for him all day. She adds that it's
a terrible business, and John agrees.
Inside, Fiona tells John that it's not a very good idea: if he
goes, he'll be running away. John asks Fiona if she knows what's
going on, and Fiona explains that Matt had a chat to her. John
says the whole thing is sick. Fiona replies that she
reacted in the same way when she first heard, but Matt has a very
good track record, and she trusts his judgement. John appears
to waver, and says he doesn't know... Fiona points out that it
is for Angela. John tells her that she doesn't
know what's been going on in his head. Fiona says she knows that,
and she realises it would be the hardest decision ever - but he
has to trust Matt - and if not him, trust her.
Outside, Matt climbs down from a horse, which is taken away by
a stablehand. Fiona and John come over to him and John tells him
that he'll go along with his idea - but he threatens Matt that
if it goes wrong, he'll never let him forget it.
Patricia and Stephen arrive back at Toorak, and Patricia thanks
Stephen for lunch, adding that it was nice to go to a restaurant
where the waiters know your name. She then thanks him for a lovely
afternoon, and Stephen replies, "Thankyou."
Patricia asks him when he's flying out, and he'll replies that
it'll be tonight - he's staying in Dural. Patricia says she meant
when is he flying to London, and Stephen tells her that it'll
be in a few days, after Gordon and Barbara's wedding. He adds
that he wishes he didn't have to go now, having met Patricia...
Patricia asks if he's always so direct with women, but Stephen
says he isn't. He then continues that he's never been so immediately
attracted to someone - Patricia is beautiful, quick-witted, strong-willed
and a good challenge. Patricia remarks that he sure is one of
the smoothest men she's ever met. Stephen thanks Patricia again
and goes. Patricia stands there, smiling.
Doug, Kevin and Rob arrive back at the Palmers' to find the house
empty. As they pile in, Beryl comes out of the bedroom, quickly
adjusting her dress! When David emerges a few seconds later, Doug
asks him if he was having a snooze! David asks how Peter is, and
Doug admits that he put his foot in it with him. Rob explains
that Peter is feeling bad about his father's suicide. David then
asks how Tony is going at the coffee shop. Doug looks uncomfortable,
and explains about how Tony turned up late. David asks whether
Doug knocked Tony back, and Doug admits that he did. David snaps
that it's hard for Tony. He starts getting his things
together to go out, causing Doug to remark that David only just
got there. David says he's got to go, to offer
Tony the job again. Rob, Kevin and Doug go into the kitchen, leaving
Beryl to ask David why he's going after a kid he barely knows.
David replies that he wants to stop him doing anything stupid.
He adds that he wouldn't go if it wasn't important.
Sometime later, David's car pulls in at the side of a road and
David gets out. He approaches Tony, who's hanging around with
two of his mates. Tony introduces David to his mates, and David
tells Tony that he called to see him: if he still wants the job,
it's his. Tony's mates immediately start making fun of him for
wanting a job, and Tony hurriedly replies that he really just
dropped in at the coffee shop to see Beryl and thank her for the
stuff she brought in for him. Realising he's put his foot in it,
David asks for a word with Tony, who asks him if he's got something
on. David says he might have. The two of them walk over to David's
car, and Tony tells David he's glad he got off. David comments
that it's a shame Tony couldn't say that in front of his mates.
He then continues that the offer of the job still applies. He
gives Tony the Palmers' address and tells him to drop round for
a meal. He then tells him to keep his nose clean, and Tony thanks
him for coming round.
At Toorak, Patricia is looking at the note that has accompanied
a second bunch of flowers. This time, the note says, 'Expect to
get these every day. Stephen Morrell.'. Patricia smiles, happily.
The 'phone suddenly starts ringing, and Patricia looks at it in
surprise. She tentatively answers it and Stephen comes on and
asks if the flowers have arrived yet. Patricia asks him how he
got through, and he replies that he got her 'phone fixed up so
that he can ring her from London. He adds that he'll see her in
a few weeks.
Angela and John are having dinner at Woombai, and Angela remarks
that Rosie is a good cook. She then offers John some more vegetables
before remarking that it's funny how they've ben left by themselves.
John bitterly says, "You reckon?" The tension in the
air is palpable as Angela tells John that she looked for him today.
John explains that he was in town. Angela asks why, and John replies
that he had things to do. He then asks Angela if she went for
a ride, and she says she did, and it was good. She then says it
seems funny, knowing who John is and feeling tongue-tied. John
David, Rob, Doug, Kevin and Beryl are all in the kitchen at the
Palmers', but Rob and Kevin quickly head out, Rob saying goodbye
to Doug as he does so. Doug also then starts to head off to continue
his packing. As he's about to leave the room, David tells him
that he'll give him a lift in the morning, but Doug replies that
it's not necessary. David then apologises for snapping at his
father earlier. Doug indignantly says he didn't know how much
Tony needed the job, and the two men shake hands. Doug says he'll
be ready to leave at 7am, and he leaves the room. Alone with David,
Beryl tells him that she's glad he said that. David explains that
he was in a cell with Tony for three weeks, and they got to be
friends; he'd have gone round the bend if it hadn't been for Tony.
He continues that Tony is a great kid who hasn't had a decent
go - he feels responsible for him; he doesn't know why, but he
wants to give him a second chance.
John and Angela are now sitting on the settee, and Angela says
she's getting better every day. She tells John about how she saw
a tractor earlier, and recalled a memory of the same tractor from
when she was ten. John says that's good. Angela continues that
it's so awkward, not remembering things - she wants to prove to
John that what she felt for Paul doesn't mean a thing now - she
loves him. John sighs and tells Angela that she could
be feeling something she felt a long time ago. He moves closer
to her and asks her if she remembers riding a horse across a paddock
and falling off. Angela says she doesn't really. John explains
that he came to see her in hospital and he met her mother; he
then came to her house and they found they had a kind of bond.
Angela says she wishes she could remember. John tells her that
they then found out something. Angela asks what. John replies
that they found out they loved each other - but in a completely
different way. Angela tell him that she doesn't understand. John
replies that they loved each other because they didn't understand...
He kisses her on the cheek. Angela then moves and kisses John
on the lips. John murmurs, "Oh, Angie..." Angie has
a look of horror upon her face, though, as realisation starts
to dawn. She says, "Oh my god... John." She
stands up and runs out, leaving John looking worried.
