  • Judy is stunned at meeting Lori and asks how she found her. Lori explains that her adoptive parents, the Youngs,were afraid that Judy was going to try and contact her during her escape so they told Lori everything. Judy asks her to return the next day after she's had a chance to compose herself. Michelle is entertaining the women with her story of leaving Jim in her dust, when Judy walks in. Bea and Doreen want to know all about her visitor (assuming it was a professional do-gooder) but the Jude is evasive. Judy then runs into Erica in the hall and asks her if she may have a special visit the next day. Erica wants to know specfically why and Judy refuses to be specific so Erica just walks away. Discovering that Terry was the supervising officer at the meeting, Erica asks him why Judy should need another visit. Terry informs her that the visitor was Judy's daughter. Jim asks Meg if she can recommend anyone from Legal Aid to help Michelle. Erica tells Judy that she may have her special visit. When Lori comes the next day for her visit she encounters Jim who knows nothing of it. She tells him who she is and Jim asks her if she's sure she means Judy Bryant. He verifies the meeting with Erica and then, looking pretty amused, he escorts Lori to the garden. Lori asks Judy why she gave her up for adoption but Judy is vague. Judy does tell her that she got herself put into prison to protect a "friend". Lori finds that very touching. While they are talking, Tony Morton from Legal Aid arrives to see Michelle. Jim then tells Lori that her time is up. When she asks if she can return the next day, Jim says that that's impossible and that she'll have to wait til the next week. Lori is concerned because she didn't bring much money, but she promises her Mum that she won't leave without seeing her again. Michelle meets with Tony, who tells her that her prospects are grim. No one can locate this "old lady" who saw her training in the park. Michelle then asks Jim if he can arrange for Henry to visit her. Hazel has seen Judy in the garden with Lori and promptly tells Bea and the other about Judy's pretty visitor. When Judy comes into the dining room, everyone starts making naughty innuendoes. Judy gets very upset and storms out. Doreen goes and apologizes. Judy tells Doreen that Lori is her old friend, Pauline's, daughter. Lori walks into a jewelry store, puts several expensive rings on her fingers, smiles and darts out. She allows herself to be easily caught. At breakfast, Judy is shocked when Vera escorts Lori into the room. Vera asks Judy if Lori is a friend - "That wouldn't be surprising, they all end up in here." In the laundry, Judy screams at a trembling extra and throws sheets at her. Bea calms her down and Judy runs after Jim to ask if she can testify at Lori's hearing. Jim says that Lori has already left for it. Henry visits Michelle who complains about her inability to properly train (Though she makes sure to flash Jim a quick smile for his help) Henry asks if he could come into Wentworth to train her. Jim doubts it as it would surely be viewed as preferential treatment. Henry then volunteers to give Keep-Fit classes for the women. Jim thinks this is a good idea. Meg visits Erica who rambles on about her mother until Meg silences her with a dinner invitation. Jim and Henry then enter to present the Keep-Fit program. Erica glady agrees. Judy has herself transfered to the garden and immediately tries to climb the fence (Though she can't lift herself very high). As Vera and Terry drag her inside she goes on about testifying for Lori. Erica understands Judy's panic and, much to Vera's horror, merely has Judy confined to her cell. Judy then asks if Lori can share with her. Much to Vera's continued horror, Erica agrees. Jim tells the women about the Keep-fit program and tells them they could do with one. Bea is not interested. When Jim leaves, Michelle tells Bea the class is merely a way of allowing her to talk to her coach in private. Bea agrees to go along with it. Vera tells Doreen that she's being moved back in with Smith. As Doreen collects her things, Vera tells her that Judy is making way for her pretty young friend. Doreen asks Judy if this is true. Judy says it is, but not the way she thinks. Doreen is deeply hurt and runs out. Lori returns having received a deferred sentence pending a parole officer's report. Judy tells Lori not to tell the other women she is her daughter. Lori doesn't understand why, but Judy is adamant (She thinks the women will hate her for willingly giving up her child). Vera asks Meg for dinner, but Meg says she's already invited Erica over. She then invites Vera and Terry as well. The Keep-Fit class begins in the garden. Michelle gets Henry aside and tell him to find the old lady. He says he's been trying. Michelle says he doesn't understand - she wants him to find any old lady and pay her to lie. Henry is reluctant to commit perjury. Michelle says that she's innocent, and she'll do anything - legal or otherwise - to prove it.
