Rose's widowed sister, the vivacious Vera, arrives from England to stay, much to the Coyne children's delight, but Michael is wary and rightly so -- as Vera encourages Emma's romance with Andrew, and also gets drunk whilst working at his bar. Attracted to Dreyfuss, she asks him to lunch with the family after Rose has told her she finds him intellectually stimulating. Rose also ends up kissing him and, unaware of this, Vera returns to London. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


Vera Curtis: If Captain Dreyfuss walked in wearing only a brocade dressing gown and flung himself on the bed, you'd talk to him about literature?
Rose Coyne: Don't tease. I know I can't have that one bit of him and still say I love Michael, I know that. I'm a fool, not an idiot. But if you take it away from me, if you take away the chance that, in a different universe in a different set of circumstances, we could have swapped souls. "Always stay with me, take any shape..." Oh, I used to remember every word of this.
