Ruth bumps into Margaret and berates her for being an unloving mother to Martin; but, even Margaret, like Louisa, is concerned that Martin seems withdrawn and unwell. He attends the school prize giving, but his curt manner ends with him stomping off, and Louisa, running after him, is hit by a car and hospitalized. Visiting her, Martin is concerned that she may have an embolism, but is shocked when she announces she wants to take James for a break with her mother Eleanor in Spain. Military policemen visit Port Wenn, looking for Mike, an Army deserter. He is prepared for a life on the run, but Martin persuades him that things will go better for him if he gives himself up.

But it isn't your pilfering and your petty meanness that I care about. It's the damage that you can still inflict on Martin.
Well, I don't have to stay here to listen to this.
Go home, Margaret.

I am Martin's mother. I have every right to be here. You've never had children. You can't possibly understand what you're talking about.
Don't forget your grandson!
