Stephen introduces Jenny to Caroline and explains that she's
staying there for a few days - for a holiday. Caroline muses,
"Pleased to meet you." Jenny tells her, "Same here."
She then asks "How do you know Stephen?" and Caroline
smiles, "I'm his ex-wife. Hasn't he told you about me?"
Stephen stands there, looking sheepish. Jenny stutters that she
knew about Patricia... Caroline tells her, "We go
back a lot further than Patricia..." Walking over
to Stephen, she adds, "Don't we..." and she
gives him a kiss. Jenny looks at him. Caroline tells Stephen,
"I'm so glad you're back." In the lounge room, Gary
asks Barbara, who's staring out into the hallway, "Trouble?"
Barbara mutters, "I hope not." Stephen, Caroline and
Jenny come into the room, Caroline asking Stephen as they do so
if he had a nice trip down from Woombai. Stephen replies that
he did, and Caroline suggests, "It must have been nice to
have some company..." Stephen agrees that it was.
Caroline then tells Barbara, "I've just met your
house guest." Barbara smiles, "Oh good..." Turning
to Jenny, Caroline asks her, "And how do you know
Stephen?" Jenny explains that her property is right next
to Woombai - it's hard to miss people in small country towns.
Caroline comments that it's a bit different from Sydney,
but Jenny retorts, "Not really - you still meet all types."
Caroline asks if it isn't hard for a lady to run a property, and
Jenny replies that it was at first, but you get used to it - and
Stephen has been a big help. Caroline smiles, "I'm sure
he has..." At that moment, Gordon comes into the room and
says to Gary, "Wayne? Get over last night?" Gary replies
that his head is a bit better this morning, and Gordon tells him
that he was sensible not to drive. He then turns to Caroline and
asks her how she is. She replies that she's fine. She then goes
on that, when she heard that Stephen was back, she decided to
collar him for another business lesson. Turning to Stephen, she
adds, "That's alright with you, isn't it?" Stephen protests,
"Well, actually, we were planning to--" Caroline interrupts
him, though, and says, "Good, we'll pick up where we left
off last time." Looking at Jenny, she tells her, "I
do hope that Stephen hasn't promised to show you around or anything,
but if he doesn't fill me in a bit more about how the company's
run, I'm not going to be much use in helping to run it."
Gary offers, "I'll show you the ropes, if you like.
No need to tie Stephen here." Gordon, though, points out,
"I doubt you'd be a very good teacher, the way your memory
is," and Gary mutters, "I suppose not." Caroline
suggests to Stephen that it might be the best idea if they go
back to the apartment - there are less interruptions there. Looking
at Jenny, she adds, "I'm sorry to take him away." Jenny
muses, "If Stephen's happy to go..." Stephen
tells her that he'll see her tonight - they'll have dinner together.
Caroline pointedly tells her, "Nice to have met you, Jenny.
Enjoy your holiday..." With that, Stephen grabs her arm and
snaps, "Come on..." They head off, leaving Jenny standing
there, looking upset.
Andy opens the door of his bedsit. Helena is standing outside,
and he tells her to come in. He adds that lunch is just about
ready - a traditional Australian meal! Helena smiles that, one
day, she'll cook him a proper Greek meal - that's if
she gets the chance; if she has to marry Nikos, she won't
even be able to look at another man, let alone cook a
meal for him. As Andy sits down, he tells Helena that he tried
to think how he could help her, but he couldn't come up with anything.
He suggests that maybe Fiona will, but Helena dubiously
points out that Fiona is Eddie's friend - she won't go
against his wishes; and anyway, Eddie wants the wedding.
Andy asks her if she's met Nikos, and Helena replies,
"Yes, twice - but he's not a good person. I cannot talk to
him like I can talk to you." Looking slightly nervous at
that, Andy says he'll serve up, and he goes to the stove and brings
back two pies and a bottle of sauce! He places one pie in front
of each of them and then adds that they'll also be having lamingtons.
Helena queries, "Lamingtons? I have heard of these."
Andy laughs, "All lies - they taste great!" He opens
the bottle of tomato sauce and pours it all over his pie. He then
tells Helena that, when they've finished eating, they'll have
a talk to Fiona - he thinks she'll help her even if she is
a friend of Eddie's. He bites into his pie as Helena looks at
the food dubiously!
As Stephen and Caroline walk into the Morrell apartment, Stephen
snaps at his ex-wife that he supposes she did manage
to get him away for the afternoon, but she was hardly subtle
about it. Caroline retorts that she wanted to be with
him, but Stephen tells her that there was no need to put Jenny
down like that. Caroline insists that she never meant anything
derogatory, but Stephen snaps that Blind Freddie could have seen
what she was doing; he wasn't impressed. Caroline growls, "What
about me? I was hardly impressed by the fact
that you brought a girlfriend back with you." Stephen
goes to the bar and starts pouring a drink as he retorts, "She
is just a friend." Caroline muses, "Really?
So you've never slept with her?" Stephen turns to face her
sharply and tells her, "There was never any commitment between
us." Caroline points out, "The woman's in love
with you." Stephen murmurs that he knows. Caroline points
out, "Then you shouldn't have brought her to Sydney."
Stephen asks, "What about you and Mark? I suppose that's
different?" Caroline retorts that she didn't invite
Mark - he turned up; she thought she and Stephen had
something going, so she got rid of him. She then goes on that
she did see Jenny kissing him, and she asks him if he'd
rather she just accepted it. She puts her arms round him and tells
him, "I missed you. Are you sure a relationship with me is
what you want?" Stephen whispers, "Yes," and Caroline
gives him a hug. Stephen looks worried, though.
At Beryl's, Heather and David wander into the lounge room, and
Heather asks how Beryl is. David replies that she's not good -
the doctor's with her now. He adds that she's on sedatives; it's
the only thing that's going to calm her down. Heather tells him
that he looks like he could do with some rest himself,
and she offers to sit with Beryl for a while, if he wants to take
a break. David, though, assures her that he'll be alright. He
adds that Beryl just won't believe that the baby at the home isn't
Robert. Heather asks if there's any chance she could be right,
but David replies, "No way." He adds that he doesn't
want to admit that Robert is dead, either, but it's the only thing
that could have happened; the thing is, trying to convince
Beryl. Heather tells him, "I was in town the other
day when a baby in a pram started crying. She was convinced it
was Robert as soon as she heard it." David muses, "The
other night, when she was positive she heard a baby crying outside...
Oh, what a mess. I hope she gets over it." Heather says sadly,
"So do I."
Barbara, Jenny and Gary are sitting in the lounge room at Dural.
Jenny is saying to Barbara that she didn't know Stephen and Caroline
were staying together. Barbara explains hesitantly, "Um,
yes, at their daughter, Amanda's, place." Gary chips in,
"Mind you, I think Caroline's more than happy with
the arrangement. Barbara glares at him. Jenny goes on, "Stephen
and Caroline are divorced, but this morning she acted like she
owned him. Is there something I should know?" Looking
uncomfortable, Barbara replies, "I'm sure Stephen will tell
you if he feels he has to." Gary smiles, "If he
doesn't, Caroline certainly will!" Looking annoyed,
Barbara suggests to Jenny that she go and put on some walking
shoes and she'll show her around the garden. Jenny accepts this
offer and heads off to change. When she's gone, Barbara snaps
at Gary, "And just what the hell do you think you're playing
at?" Gary insists 'innocently', "Nothing," but
Barbara tells him curtly, "Jenny is in love with Stephen
and the last thing she needs is you prattling on about Caroline."
Gary snaps, "I didn't know. What sort of game is
Stephen playing?" Barbara retorts, "Don't ask
me. All I know is he should never have brought Jenny
down here in the first place." Gary suggests that maybe he
still feels something for her, to which Barbara retorts, "Then
he's going to have to make up his mind - and if he's
not going to tell Jenny, then maybe I will." She
stands up and adds, "And you, you just watch what you say
in the future." Gary replies that he will. Barbara heads
out to the hallway. Gary closes the lounge room doors behind her,
goes to the 'phone on the bar and dials. Dennis answers and Gary
tells him that it's him. Dennis retorts that it's about time he
rang. Gary mutters that he's sorry - he hasn't had the chance.
He lights a cigarette as Dennis asks him if anything came of the
house they tried to knock over. Gary, though, assures him that
they're in the clear. Dennis mutters that it's just as well. He
then points out that he thought Gary said they wouldn't be disturbed,
but Gary asks, "How was I to know she'd come back?"
Dennis asks what they do now, adding that it's a bit risky to
try again, isn't it? Gary tells him that they're not going
to. He adds that there should be something in the mail for Dennis
soon - he's just sold a property that this Wayne character owned;
it was worth a mint. Dennis exclaims, "You beauty!
Get out of there and we'll take a holiday!" Gary, though,
tells him to hang on - it's going to take a few weeks for the
money to come through. Dennis replies, "When you get it,
we'll take off then - there's no point staying any longer than
we have to." Gary, though, asks, "Why not? Longer I
stay, the more we make. Besides, I've met a lovely lady - and
she's loaded." Dennis warns, "Mate... you don't want
to take too many risks." Gary, though, insists, "I can
handle it. The ex-husband looks like being a bit of a worry, but
I can throw a spanner in the works there. There's no way I'm going
to miss my chance with the lovely Caroline..."
Jill sits down in Fiona's flat, with Fiona, Andy and Helena and
laughs that Helena is still alive, so lunch couldn't have been
too bad! Helena smiles that the lamingtons were very
nice! Fiona, looking bemused, asks how the rest of it was, and
Helena smiles, "It was, um..." Andy explains, "Pies
and sauce." Fiona exclaims, "Oh, Andy!" Andy explains
indignantly that it was a typical Australian meal! Jill sympathises
with Helena, "You poor thing! Would you like to come shopping?
It might help you forget!" Helena, though, shrugs and replies
that the lunch was not that bad - it was good of Andy to make
it for her. She then adds that she'd love to go shopping, and
so Jill says she'll get Fee, adding that she's a lot better now
and the fresh air will do her good. She leaves the room. When
she's gone, Andy tells Fiona that there's something he'd like
to talk to her about. Helena quickly says she thinks she'll go
and help Jill, and she stands up. Looking surprised, Fiona watches
her go. She then asks Andy what's wrong with the girl, and Andy
explains that that's what he wants to talk to her about: there's
no way Helena should have to marry Nikos. Fiona stares at him
and then tells him, "Look, I am against pre-arranged marriages
myself, but we're not in any position to judge. It's part of Helena's
culture." Andy points out, "She's only met
the guy twice, and she doesn't even like him; it would
be a disaster..." Fiona tells him that she knows
how he feels, but if they try and meddle, it's only going to make
things worse. Andy insists that they can't just ignore it. He
goes on that Fiona said Eddie is a decent man and he knows Helena's
father; can't she just explain to him? - maybe he'll
be able to do something about it? Fiona, though, says she doubts
it. She goes on, "Andy, I know how you feel. You like Helena
don't you?" Andy agrees, "Yeah, so?" Fiona asks
him, "Are you sure you're not just getting involved because
you're attracted to the girl?" Andy retorts that that's not
the point: Helena is going to be unhappy if the wedding goes through,
and he doesn't want to see her unhappy. He asks if they
can't just ring Eddie and see what he has to say. Fiona sighs
and gives in, "Alright - but I do all the talking,
OK? The way you're feeling, you're liable to open your
mouth and say the wrong thing!"
Heather pours some tea for her and David in the lounge room at
Beryl's. As she does so, Beryl and a doctor walk into the room,
and Heather offers Beryl a cuppa. Beryl, though, declines. She
then tells David, "Doctor Brent has just taken a blood sample
from me. Would you mind letting him do the same to you?"
David, looking puzzled, asks why. Beryl explains, "Because
it's one way of proving that the baby at the Children's Home is
Robert." The doctor tells David that he thinks it would be
a good idea if he did take the test, and he suggests
that they go in the kitchen. The two men head in there, and David
closes the doors behind him. When the two of them are alone, David
says, "Doc, our baby's dead. The last thing I want
is to give Beryl something to cling to." The doctor replies,
"I agree, but there's every chance that the blood test will
prove that the baby at the Home couldn't be yours."
David asks, "What if the test does match? It still doesn't
prove anything." The doctor replies, "I know - it would
only indicate the possibility that it could be your child."
David asks if Beryl knows that, adding that it sounded
to him like she thought it would prove something. The
doctor, though, replies that she wouldn't listen when he tried
to explain. He opens up his case and David suggests that they
get started. He adds that, with any luck, the test will prove
negative and force Beryl to accept that the baby's not theirs.
Stephen is on the 'phone at the Morrell apartment, talking to
Jenny. He tells her that he'll see her tonight and then hangs
up. As soon as he does so, Caroline asks him why he didn't tell
Jenny that he was going to break-up with her and get it over and
done with. Stephen explains that he'd rather do it in person -
he thinks she deserves that much. Caroline taunts, "You couldn't
do it, could you?" Stephen retorts, "Not over the 'phone,
no," but Caroline suggests, "Maybe you didn't mean
what you said about wanting our relationship to work?" Stephen
snaps, "Oh, stop it, Caroline," but Caroline persists,
"Why? If you were serious about us getting together again,
you would hardly be worried about the feelings of some hick from--"
Stephen suddenly interrupts and snaps, "I said stop it."
Caroline breaks off and says more quietly that she's sorry; she
didn't mean that. Stephen, though, tells her, "I think you
did." He then goes on, "Woombai is part of
my life, Caroline. I couldn't live anywhere else - but you don't
have the slightest intention of coming to stay there, do you?
You think we'll live 'happily ever after' in Sydney." Caroline
insists, "No, if you prefer it, we'll live in the country,"
but Stephen asks, "How long will it last? A month? Six weeks,
maybe?" Caroline pleads, "At least give me a chance,"
but Stephen points out bitterly, "I gave Patricia
a chance. I still haven't quite forgiven myself for that."
He heads towards the front door and Caroline asks him where he's
going. Stephen just mutters, "Out. I need time to think."
Caroline looks worried.
In the lounge room at Dural, Barbara tells Jenny gently that
she thinks there's something she should know. Jenny looks at her,
and Barbara explains, "Stephen went back to Woombai to break
it off between you - because of the way he feels about Caroline."
Jenny sighs heavily and, looking upset, says, "I guessed
how Caroline felt, but it never even entered my head
that Stephen felt the same - although this morning, the
way he let her walk all over him..." Barbara says gently
that she's so sorry. Jenny insists that she'll be alright; plenty
more fish in the sea. She then cries, "I hate fish...
I feel so stupid. I thought that this could be a really
special weekend for us - sort of a honeymoon." Barbara insists
that it's not stupid; she understands. Jenny goes on,
"I feel a fool, but that's not what hurts most. I'm going
to miss him." Barbara asks her what she's going
to do, and Jenny cries, "Go home - there's not much point
staying here." She then adds, "Barbara, would
you tell Stephen that you've told me how he feels? It'll save
us both some embarrassment - and, er, thanks for everything."
With that, she gives Barbara a hug and heads out to the hallway.
As she does so, Gary emerges from the study and asks what's wrong:
Stephen? Jenny explains that she's going back to Woombai, and
she tells 'Wayne' that it was nice to meet him, Gary, though,
quickly says, "I don't think you should leave. Stephen deserves
better than Caroline - she'll make life hell
for him." Jenny cries that it's his choice, but Gary points
out that she still loves Stephen, doesn't she? Jenny
cries, "Course I still love him," and so Gary tells
her, "Then stay and fight. Stephen might feel something for
Caroline now, but she's wrong for him - they
proved that when they split up the first time. If he
gets involved with her again, he'll be making the biggest mistake
of his life. At least think about staying." Jenny
cries that she'll think about it, and she runs off upstairs, leaving
Gary looking annoyed.
Eddie is at Fiona's flat, and as she lets him in, she thanks
him for coming round. Eddie asks her what her worry is, and Fiona
tells him that it's a little hard to explain. He sits down next
to Andy, and Fiona goes on, "Um... Helena doesn't want to
go through with the wedding. She's told Andy and Jill that she
just doesn't love Nikos." Eddie, looking annoyed, points
out curtly, "I told you what the situation was, Fiona. You
were supposed to look after her." Fiona insists that she
has been. Andy interjects, "It's not a question
of looking after her. All the girl wants--" He breaks off
as Fiona warns, "Andy..." She then turns back to Eddie
and continues, "I don't know why her father's sent her out
here on her own, anyway. A young, attractive girl in a new country...
she's bound to want to live a bit... meet new people." Eddie
growls that he should never have let her out of his sight; he'll
just have to take her back. He stands up, but Andy does likewise
and snaps, "You don't listen, do you? Helena doesn't
want to marry Nikos." Eddie glares at him and retorts, "It's
got nothing to do with you, son. It's what both families want
- this wedding's been planned for ten years." Andy
snaps, "Yeah, that's right up your alley, isn't it? What
difference does it make if a girl is sold for money or family
relations?" Fiona warns again, "Andy..." but Andy
goes on angrily, "No. If he had any sort of conscience, he'd
be trying to get her out of it, not pushing her into it."
With that, he storms out. Fiona sighs, "Oh dear, I'm so sorry.
I was afraid that might happen." Eddie accuses, "That
boy's in love with her." Fiona laughs, "Oh no, they're
just good pals," but Eddie mutters, "I don't think so."
Jill - pushing Fee in her buggy - and Helena walk round the corner
of the corridor at the boarding house, Helena asking Jill as they
do so if Andy will like her new clothes. Jill smiles that she's
sure he will, and she suggests that Helena go and show him. The
girl knocks on Andy's door, while Jill heads back to Fiona's.
Andy opens the door and invites Helena in. She immediately asks
him if he likes her new clothes, adding that Jill bought them
for her. Andy says bluntly that they look great. Helena stares
at him in surprise, and he explains, "Eddie's next door with
Fiona. I tried to talk to--" Helena interrupts and, looking
fearful, asks what Eddie said. Andy tells her, "He
wants to take you back to his place." Helena retorts,
"No. I will not marry Nikos and I will not stay with Eddie.
Nikos will be very angry when he finds out, but I cannot marry
a man I do not love." Andy walks over to her, puts his hands
on her shoulders and, staring into her eyes, says, "Good
for you. And I will help in any way I can." Helena stares
back at him.
Jill emerges from her room in Fiona's flat and tells Fiona and
Eddie - who are both sitting on the couch, looking worried - that
she almost wishes Fee didn't have to grow up - she was much easier
to carry a few weeks ago! Fiona doesn't respond to this, instead
asking if Helena said how long she was going to be with Andy.
Jill replies, "Nope - a few minutes, I suppose." Eddie
growls, "She shouldn't be with him at all."
Andy and Helena emerge from Andy's bedsit and stand in the corridor.
Helena says to Andy that she really doesn't think she's as brave
as she sounds - her hands are shaking. Andy smiles that he
thinks she's very brave. With that, he puts his arm round
her and they head off along the corridor, walking towards the
front door. The door to Fiona's flat suddenly opens and she and
Eddie come out. Fiona stares at the young couple and exclaims
in surprise, "Andy!" He and Helena turn round in shock.
A few moments later, Andy and Helena are heading into Fiona's,
followed by Fiona and Eddie. Fiona snaps at Andy that she thought
he had more sense, but Andy retorts indignantly that
nothing happened. Eddie snaps at him that he shouldn't have been
anywhere near the girl, but Andy growls that he had his
arm around her, that's all. He adds, "Anyway, it's our
business, not yours." Eddie yells, "The girl's my responsibility,"
but Andy yells back, "She's over 18." Fiona interrupts
and cries at him, "Now wait a minute. Helena has been brought
up in an entirely different culture. She'll only get hurt if this
goes on. She is engaged to Nikos." Andy snaps, "That's
all I keep on hearing. 'Nikos, Nikos...' What about Helena?"
Fiona insists that she's thinking of Helena. Helena cries,
"I would like to make my own decisions, Mrs. Thompson."
Eddie turns to the girl and says to her, "You know what your
father wants, don't you?" Helena nods. Eddie goes on, "Then
do it. You don't stop respecting him just because he's
not here." Helena retorts, "I do respect him,
but that doesn't mean I have to marry Nikos. I love Andy."
Fiona sighs in disbelief and Eddie asks her, "Now
do you still think Helena should stay here?" Fiona suggests
to Helena that maybe it would be best if she went. Helena cries
that she thought Fiona was her friend, and Fiona replies
that she is, but she just doesn't want to see her hurt,
and with Andy living across the hall... Andy snaps, "Thanks
a lot." Eddie suddenly grabs Helena's arm and goes to push
her out. Helena struggles to get away, and Andy tries to intervene,
but Fiona pulls him back and tells him that it's best to let her
go. She adds that she knows it's unfortunate, but it is the better
Gary is sitting smoking in the lounge room at Dural when he hears
footsteps in the hallway, and he quickly stubs out the cigarette.
Jenny comes in and, looking relieved, Gary says, "Oh, it's
you. What have you decided?" Jenny tells him, "Maybe
you were right about Caroline." Gary, looking relieved, assures
her, "Believe me, I am." Jenny goes on, "I'll
fight." Gary smiles, "Good on you. As soon as Stephen
gets back, you should have a long talk with him." Jenny points
out that he's at Amanda's, so she might as well get it over with
- and besides, she wants to talk to him and Caroline together.
Gary, though, quickly snaps, "Don't be stupid - Caroline
won't let you get a word in edgewise once she knows why you're
there." Jenny retorts, "No, the three of us should sort
this out. I know Caroline's a bit hard to take, but she has a
right to hear what I'm going to say." She heads off to call
a cab, leaving Gary looking annoyed as he sips from a can of beer.
It's nighttime, and David hangs up the 'phone at Beryl's. Beryl
comes out of the kitchen and asks if that was Dr. Brent. David
nods. Beryl goes on, "The tests were positive, weren't
they?" David admits, "Yeah." Beryl excitedly says,
"I knew it - I'll ring Diane and tell her we're coming to
get Robert." She picks up the telephone receiver, but David
grabs it from her and tells her, "The tests don't prove a
thing. There's millions of people out there
with the same blood group as ours. The kid could be anyone's."
Beryl stares at him and he continues, "You ask the doctor.
He tried to tell you, but you just didn't want to listen."
Beryl says quietly, "I'll ring Diane now," but David
retorts, "There's no point, is there?" Beryl cries,
"David, why don't you want me to get him back?" David
tells her, "'Cos he's not ours. Robert's dead."
Beryl cries, "Why won't anyone listen to me?"
David replies, "We're trying to help you, Beryl."
Beryl looks upset.
Jenny has arrived at the Morrell apartment, but Caroline tells
her that Stephen isn't there at the moment. Jenny asks Caroline
if she minds if she waits, and Caroline muses that she supposes
not. She then asks Jenny what she wanted to talk about. Jenny
explains, "I know what's been going on between you and Stephen.
Barbara told me." The two women go and sit down,
Caroline saying as they do so, "Oh. What do you mean to do
about it?" Jenny, though, says she'd rather talk about it
when Stephen gets there. Caroline asks, "Why? We've got to
pass the time somehow." Jenny stares at her and
then says, "If Stephen decides that he wants you more than
me, I'll leave without any trouble." Caroline, looking surprised,
says, "You came here to make Stephen choose?"
Jenny nods, and Caroline sniggers! Jenny tells her, "You're
very sure of yourself. I'm not sure Stephen's that certain
he wants you." Caroline, though, retorts, "Oh,
he's certain enough. Besides, you're hardly what I'd call competition
- the only reason he didn't give you your marching orders was
because you were so damn pushy about coming to Sydney. So why
don't you just travel off back to Woombai and save everyone
a lot of trouble?" Jenny glares at her and retorts, "Wayne
was right: you are wrong for Stephen."
Caroline queries, "Wayne?" Jenny goes on, "I had
every intention of just bowing out gracefully, but he convinced
me that you'd only make Stephen unhappy and, well, it's painfully
obvious he knew what he was talking about." Caroline stands
up again and suggests curtly, "Leave, Jenny. You'll save
yourself an awful lot of embarrassment when Stephen gets back."
Neither of them is aware that Stephen has just arrived and is
standing outside the front door and can hear the conversation.
Jenny tells Caroline, "I don't think so. I can make him realise
how much happier he'd be with me." Caroline retorts, "You
couldn't make him happy if you tried. I'm sure I could
do a better job than you." Stephen opens the front
door, but at that moment, Caroline turns and heads towards the
bar, so she doesn't notice him come in - and Jenny already has
her back to the door. Caroline goes on, "You've been out
in the sun too long, Jenny. Either that or you've been working
with cows too much." She pours herself a drink and continues,
"You'd make excellent breeding stock, but that's all - and
that's hardly the type that Stephen's interested in."
Stephen suddenly says, "Caroline." Caroline turns and
looks at him in shock. She quickly says, "Oh, I hope you
don't think that I--" She breaks off as Stephen snaps, "Oh
shut up. I came back to apologise for bringing Jenny to Sydney.
It's ironic, isn't it? It's the best thing I could have
done - otherwise I might never have found out what you're really
like." Caroline insists, "Look, she started it all -
she came in here, flinging abuse left, right and centre--"
Stephen interrupts and demands curtly, "Tell Amanda to pack
the rest of my things and send them to the Hamiltons'." With
that, he puts his hand gently on Jenny's shoulder and tells her
to come on. They head out, leaving Caroline standing there, looking
annoyed. She throws her glass furiously at the closing door.
