- My name is Victoria Winters. The strands of fear seem to bind Collinwood to much of the outside world—fear I don't quite understand—fear that reaches down to others and holds them in its grip—a grip that draws more and more tightly every minute.
Roger hides and eavesdrops on the discussion between Burke and Sam, during which Sam again attempts to get out of the deal (after he tries postponing it with a lie about having a headache). Burke again persists. Bill tells Liz that Burke's been inquiring into the Collins family business. Bill is worried that Liz will be destroyed by Burke. He asks for authority to do whatever it takes to stop young Devlin. Ned Calder gets back to Liz; Bill is pleased that the old business manager (of 15 years) might come back because he's the perfect man to stop Burke. Burke catches Sam after posing for awhile, then gets a call from Malloy. He dashes off and Roger emerges, saying he could kill Evans. Roger offers the painter a $6.000 bribe. Bill offers to help Burke clear his name if he stays away from Carolyn, Liz, and David. Roger again threatens Sam and learns about the letter. Malloy shows up at Sam's.
Memorable quotes Edit
Burke (while Roger is hiding): You're not hiding a lady love in the bedroom, are you Sam?
Sam: Questions don't mean a thing. The only points of value are answers, and I didn't give him any.
