Storyline

Vic and Eileen Needham have a violent row, and she makes a complaint against him for destroying some of her family heirloom. She also files for divorce. And that is just the beginning. Particularly with Eileen's solicitor Sylvia Swinton on the war path. Wars have been more peaceful than that. Stan Bickle pays Aunt Peggy a visit. He brings along his daughter Josie. The two women do not get along very well. Especially not after Josie begins to make passes at David and threatens Aunt Peggys influence on him. Written by Carsten Pedersen

Goofs

When Joe Mason suggests that Vic Needham could appeal the judge's ruling, Sergeant Miller says, "With these charges pending, not a chance. Not even if he had a solicitor half as sharp as his wife's." It doesn't make sense to say "half as sharp." He probably meant to say, "twice as sharp as his wife's." See more »
