The proposition leads to the first disagreement in 20 years between Sister Julienne, who sees the potential to generate income, and Dr Turner, who opposes private healthcare on principle.

"Shelagh feels caught in the middle of their conflict, while Trixie is delighted by the opportunity of working at the new clinic.

"Sister Monica Joan's crisis of faith continues to trouble her, a baby is born with no legs below the knees, and Lucille helps Cyril find the perfect accommodation that will benefit him and the Church."
