Storyline

Molly sits down with her animals to prepare them for their impending move. The death of one of the hospital's elderly residents requires Frank to look for a new home for her dog. After failing to interest Brendan, he gives the dog to Vicky to look after for a few days, but the dog soon finds its way back to the hospital. Tracy Power, a young girl struggling in school and faced with the additional pressures associated with being the child of a teacher, turns to alcohol for relief. Terence and Simon pressure Councillor Muldoon to hire a new Matron but succeed only in firing up Shirley who demands to known why Muldoon has revoked the council's tender for the hospital's new geriatric wing. Muldoon soon finds himself in hospital with peritonitis after collapsing in the clinic. A moving party is held at the Jones' farm, the event is marked by a short speech from Frank and a disturbing drunken display by young Tracy Power.
