Chris is irritated at Mike because he hasn't written or called for two weeks and when she meets him she forces Kate to come with her. Kate meets an old friend, Lachlan McGregor, and he convince her to come with him when he visits his grandfather, Angus, at the pioneers' home. Angus pretends not to recognize Lachlan to find out if he is helping his mother to sell the farm. Angus and his friend "Young" Bill escape from the pioneers' home and start walking to Coopers Crossing. They trick the flying doctors to pick them up and give them a lift and on the way back Angus keeps on calling Geoff for Kates' boyfriend. Lachlans' mother is planning on selling the farm to George Baxter but Lachlan wants to keep the farm and run it with Angus. Geoff and Chris declare Angus to be completely sane and capable of managing his own business and therefor Lachlans' mother can't sell the farm.
