Storyline

A single father isn't satisfied with Terence's diagnosis of his daughter's illness. Frank and Rosemary unknowingly trade barbs against one another in their anonymous letters to the editor in the Burrigan Examiner. After Polly Dalton's grandmother is initially suspected, the girl's father is found to be the one giving his daughter the medications that are making her ill. Frank and Rosemary reluctantly team up for a bowles tournament. At Frank's suggestion, Luke uses the "wounded soldier maneuver" to illicit Steve's sympathy. Rosemary's raffle prize, her new "XL Auto", finally arrives but is far from what she had been anticipating, none the less, she names her Simone.
