Both Adrian and maria go through the separate therapy and report at the clinic bathroom at night to compare notes. Gunther sneaks in the bathroom to take the notes back and has already been doing some photo. There's a scene where at his apartment Gunther is doing a fashion model assignment and his wife comes in and gets real jealous and the models laugh at her as they leave, when she tries to drink Gunther cognac when she's up set in a chemical bottle where he keeps it,he's a cognac addict,she drinks film processing fluid instead.Later Hans shows Adrian hows he's trying to cure an alcoholic by allowing him to drink as much as he can.

The real French analysis comes in and that's when Horbinger and Hans smells a rat.So they start to check every body and they get suspicious of Elmo and Hoven so they put them in one single room to force them to sleep together. They are trapped until Gunther comes back in the other window. They jump on him for telling it to early. Both maria and Elmo sleeps separately in the same room. Paul Horbinger goes to the news paper to talk to the head about this. It turns out that Christl was his old sweetheart.They talk it over and she decides not to be sneaky.Paul and Moser let Adrian report openly about the clinic. It seems that many of the patients were cured . Annie hate animals now.Maria finds out that Margit wasn't Adrians girl friend at all. now she and Adrian can be together now.
