Storyline

Whilst Mary and Bobbo find it tough going looking after his unruly children, Ruth,calling herself Lily Latimer,becomes a care assistant at the home where Mary's mother lives. Having befriended co-worker,lesbian Nurse Hopkins, Ruth soon gains the down-to-earth Mrs. Fisher's trust,learning that she regards Mary as being 'from the gutter'. Soon Ruth has stage-managed the old lady's discharge into the unwilling care of her daughter,whose work suffers from her unwanted new family. Meanwhile Ruth and Nurse Hopkins break into Bobbo's office and,using their joint account,transfer all his money into Ruth's bank balance. With the money they will set up an employment agency for women which will liberate them from love. Written by don @ minifie-1
