Paul is at an airport bar where he happens to bump into Courtney, who is wearing a hat and sunglasses. He explains that he's been to visit his brother in Brisbane and now he's on his way to New York. They get talking and Paul light- heartedly says he could do with one of Courtney's "special treatments" after his return flight. She takes great offence, but Paul doesn't know what she's talking about. He asks her to tell him the whole story.
Over a coffee, Courtney explains that she told Terese to "get stuffed", jumped in a taxi and came to the airport - to get as far away from Erinsborough as possible. She's therefore going to Heron Island.
Paul is writing a number on the back of a business card and explains to Courtney that it's for a defamation lawyer. He advises her to concentrate on herself for now, though.
COURTNEY: You're not as bad as my dad said you were.
PAUL: Is that possible?
COURTNEY: No. But...why don't I buy you a drink to say thank you?
PAUL: Isn't there somewhere else you'd rather be?
COURTNEY: Yes, Heron Island. But...my flight doesn't leave for a couple of hours.
They decide to keep each other company.
