She insists in breaking off a carnation from the flower arrangement for Scott and knocks over the vase. He goes off to check that Lilian hasn’t returned to their suite with the idea that he and Brenda will spend the night there. Whilst he is gone, Roy finds her in reception and guesses why she is there. He tries to persuade her to go home and suggests that Scott isn’t seriously interested in her. They quarrel and she tells him to leave her alone and get on with his own boring little life.
