Even the unfortunate rape incident was due to his trying to make her happy. He tells her to go & get ready so that they go out & cool off at a dinner.

He tells her that people get married for all kinds of reasons & make an effort to make the marriage work.

Mummy, mummy, we must hurry up…

Phillip is still not bothered. He wants to for once be known as Phillip Ade-Williams & not Fred Ade-Williams’ son. He tells Sheila to go home & talk to her husband. Sheila flared up & called him a coward & a spoilt brat. The only time his stubbornness is needed for common good, he is shying away from responsibility. He tells her to leave.

I will tell Fred that while he suffered, his wife & son shared the same bed!
