Harold says that Madge mustn't jump to conclusions - he's totally innocent. He says Madge has to trust him that he's innocent - he doesn't know who the letters are from.
MADGE: Betty...Betty...I know! Betty Pearce from the church cake stall.
HAROLD: She's seventy-two years old!
MADGE: Isn't that every man's fantasy? To be seduced by an older woman?
Harold protests that he doesn't know who this Betty is. But suddenly Madge starts laughing and she says that she does. She claims Betty is blonde and beautiful but then leaves Harold to stew(!)
Scott and Jane talk about Charene - he's looking forward to getting back to Brisbane. He's still upset about Paul and Gail's situation, and also Mike's engagement. He thinks Mike is doing it out of guilt and will ruin his whole life in the process. He told Mike this so now they've fallen out. He asks Jane to talk to him, but she isn't keen. Scott convinces her to have a try, though.
Paul and Gail have both come in to work. They work together on a couple of business problems. Gail says that they always work well together in business.
Harold begs Madge to tell him who Betty is. She says it's Betty Bristow - an old school chum of Madge's. Apparently she was the prettiest girl in the school. The night they spent together was a night in a school hall with about thirty other people. Apparently Madge bumped into her mother while she was in Brisbane and spent an hour talking on the phone to Betty. Madge says she's going to try to visit soon. Harold is delighted to have the mystery solved. Scott says he's disappointed - he was hoping to find a skeleton in Harold's closet(!)
Mike opens the door to Jane. Jenny isn't there - she's at the hospital. Jane tells Mike that they're old friends and she cares about him - she asks him if he's thought about what he's doing to Jenny. She doesn't think it's fair to give Jenny the impression that he loves her. She's been through a terrible experience and is in an emotional whirl. Mike is cross and tells Jane to accept his decision, or stop being his friend.
Gail wants to have the office redecorated - she thinks the decor is uninspiring. Paul says there are more important things to think about. Paul says he's thinking about changing the company name but Gail says that's up to him.
Mike and Todd are playing football. Todd kicks the ball really hard and it goes over the house into the garden of No.30. Hilary sees it as it rolls past.
Madge has rung Betty and she's coming to stay very soon - in fact, she's on her way already(!)
Jane comes in and tells Scott that she's had no luck with Mike. Jane suggests talking to Jenny, but Madge says it's best that they keep out of it.
Garden of No.30
Hilary is cross about the ball and threatens to confiscate it. But then she gives it back to him and gets on with tipping some seeds into a saucer - she's trying to retrieve her caged birds that were let out of the aviary. One of them is stuck in the guttering. Todd says that even if she does attract them to the seed, she won't be able to catch them. Todd says he has a better way - a foolproof way.
Jane is writing a letter for Charlene for Scott to take back to Brisbane with him. Harold shows Scott a picture of Betty in the yearbook. They giggle like schoolboys. Madge and Harold start reminsicing about school.
There's a knock at the door and a woman throws her arms around Harold and kisses him. Then she hugs Madge - it's Betty! Scott looks on in disbelief and tells Harold that Betty hasn't gone to seed at all!
Garden of No.30
Todd has set up a trap with a box to catch the birds. Mike thinks it will work, but Hilary is less sure. Hilary suggests that Todd climb up and get the bird out of the guttering instead.
Madge is making a cup of tea for Betty. Scott is still packing. Betty tells Harold that he's matured nicely(!) and says that she knew he and Madge would get together one day. Harold invites Betty to stay with them rather than go to a hotel. But Betty says she's used to having her own pad.
Scott gets a phonecall from Sandra Lloyd from the Erinsborough News. After the call, he tells Madge and Harold that Sandra has got a series of articles for him to do, so he's going to stay on in Erinsborough for a while!
Gail is still frosty with Paul for brushing of her redecoration idea. Paul says she can redecorate once they can afford it. Jane tells them both to calm down. Her opinion is that the place could stand some redecoration but she agrees that money is tight. She suggests doing the redecoration cheaply, by asking Henry to do it. Paul says that would be OK, but Gail is not impressed!
Garden of No.30
Hilary climbs up to the guttering to retrieve her bird. But the ladder slips and Hilary takes a nasty fall from the height of the roof.
