Scene 1:  George Anderson lets the doctor in, calling him Russo.
          Dr. Rossi corrects him.  [In episode 3, Catherine Marie Peyton 
          Harrington calls him Rosey.  He makes fun of his own name 
          in episode 439 when calling on Marsha Russell.]  George tells 
          Dr. Rossi that he had carried Julie upstairs, that he 
          couldn't just leave her on the floor.  Rossi tells him that 
          he shouldn't have moved Julie.  Betty comes in and is 
          introduced to Dr. Rossi.  Rossi goes upstairs.  Betty 
          noticed Rossi's car outside and George tells her that Julie 
          will be okay.  He downplays the extent of Julie's injuries.  
          Betty tells her father that Rodney broke off with her.  
          George tells Betty, she's much too good for Rodney.  

          Dr. Rossi comes down the stairs and tells George that he 
          has given Julie a sedagive and that George should bring her 
          to his office tomorrow.  George introduces Rossi to his 
          daughter, Betty.  [They are already acquainted.]  George 
          complains about all the bad luck that he has had lately.  
          Rossi is annoyed and points out that it was Julie, not 
          George, who fell down the stairs. 
Scene 2:  In the Book Gallery, Constance is endeavoring to make a 
          sale to Catherine Peyton Harrington.  George Anderson comes 
          in whistling and looking for something funny to give 
          to Julie.  Constance angers George by trying to sell him a 
          novel.  He eventually purchases a book entitled 
          "Sophisticates". George complains to Catherine that Rodney 
          dumped his daughter, Betty. Catherine doesn't seem at all 
          disturbed by this news and is rather catty to George, as is 
          her custom. 
Scene 3:  In his office, in the Peyton Professional Building, above 
          the Peyton Place Clarion, Dr. Rossi is talking with Julie 
          Anderson.  [The Peyton Professional Building provides the 
          outside entrance to the Clarion newspaper office and the 
          professional offices upstairs.]  He shows Julie an x-ray of 
          her hands.  [This seems to be a inconsistency because there 
          is no indication of an x-ray machine in his office and he 
          hasn't checked in with the hospital yet.]  They talk about 
          Betty.  Rossi asks Julie if she thinks that George needs 
          help.  She tells him that George is angry.  Rossi assures 
          Julie that he wants to help the Anderson family in any way 
          he can. 
Scene 4:  George is waiting outside on the street as Julie leaves the 
          Peyton Professional Building.  George gives Julie the 
          "Sophisticates" book that he just bought for her 
          from Constance. 

Scene 5:  Still in his office, Dr. Rossi talks to Laura Brooks, the 
          widow of Dr. Donald Brooks, the doctor he replaced, and who 
          is now working as his secretary.  

          Rossi opens a letter from Dr. Carl Landau and reads: 
               Michael, what are you doing in a provincial 
               outpost like that Peyton Place? 

          Rossi makes a reference to the perversity of computer punch 
Scene 6:  Allison rushes down the street and runs into Dr. Rossi 
          coming out of the Peyton Professional Building.  Allison 
          excuses herself.  They chat briefly. 
Scene 7:  Dr. Rossi goes into the Book Gallery, ostensibly to get 
          some post cards.  He is really there to talk with 
          Constance.  He asks her why she came to his office, to 
          talk.  Constance is rather evasive.  Rossi tells her he 
          doesn't want her to try to shut him out of her life. 
Scene 8:  In her upstairs bedroom, lying on her back in bed, with her 
          long blond hair flowing, Allison is listening to a 
          long-play (LP) album of "Romeo and Juliet," and reading as 
          the telephone rings.  She runs downstairs to the livingroom 
          to answer it.  [Back in those days, most middle-class 
          families had only one telephone.  Her friend, Abby Chapman, 
          has called to talk about Rodney Harrington.  [Only 
          Allison's side of the conversation is shown and heard.]  
          Allison says she's going on a second date with Rodney, 
          probably to the Shoreline Cafe teen hangout.  Constance 
          comes in the front door so Allison ends the call. 
Scene 9:  Leslie Harrington comes home to the mansion as Rodney is 
          preparing for his date with Allison.  Upstairs, they 
          discuss the other evening when Rodney went up to Leslie's 
          office and saw Leslie kissing Julie, Betty Anderson's 
          mother.  Rodney asks Leslie, "Why did you have to pick on 
          the mother of the girl I was going out with."  Rodney 
          informs Leslie that Betty's father, George Anderson, has 
          just driven up.  

          Leslie goes downstairs.  Norman asks Rodney what is 
          bothering him.  Rodney tells Norman that George has come 
          over to talk to their father, that George is back from a 
          sales trip.  Norman tells Rodney that he overheard about 
          Leslie kissing Julie. 
          In the livingroom, Leslie wants to talk about business, but 
          George wants to talk about his daughter, Betty, and his 
          wife, Julie.  They talk about the old school days and about 
          Julie's accident, that she fell down the stairs.  George 
          asks Leslie to put off the Detroit-Cleveland sales trip for 
          a few days.  George tells Leslie that he would like to take 
          Julie with him on the trip.  Leslie says that he needs 
          Julie in the office.  George says, "I need her, too, 
          Leslie."  Leslie says that he will think it over. 
          From their upstairs window, Rodney and Norman have observed 
          George Anderson and their father. 
Preview:  In their bedroom in the mansion, Rodney and Norman talk 
          about Allison. At the Shoreline Cafe teen hangout, Norman 
          asks Allison if he can do anything to help. 
          RH:  You tell me about Allison Mackenzie.  I'll tell you, 
               Norm.  She's a girl.  She's a very healthy good 
               looking American small town girl.  You put her on a 
               pedestal, Norm. 
          NH:  And you're going to take her down?
          NH:  Can I do something?
          AM:  No.  Just leave me alone.

Dr. Carl Landau-only mentioned.
