Titre original : Terry's Melody
Candy hopes to reason with Franny that she is serious about becoming a nurse, and that she is not as much an Ardley as Franny supposes, to no avail. Franny remains prejudiced, and the other three shun her. But then Alistear and Annie visit her to tell her that Terry will be on the stage in Chicago the following night. Alas, that same night, Candy has to do her first night shift. The head nurse refuses to alter the night shift, and eventually Candy resigns to the fact that she will not see Terry, finding herself unable to leave the patients uncared for. Unbeknownst to her, Eliza has tried to bribe Nathalie to make sure Candy cannot go to the play. Nathalie is so disgusted about it that she volunteers to take Candy's shift, even though she admits to not liking Candy very much. The starstruck Terry is fighting his own emotional battles during the train ride to Chicago when it passes the station to the road that leads to Pony's Home that he once visited. Terry also refuses to appear during rehearsal, disgusted at the hypocrisy of "charity shows" whose tickets are priced out of the common man's reach.
