To appease Annie's concern, Candy rigs a rope to a treebranch across the river when they wade in the refreshing water of a stream with a strong current. But the current is still too strong, and they are swept away once the branch breaks off. Luckily Mr. Brighton and his farmhand discover and rescue the girls while they are hunting. At the impressive Brighton hunting lodge they get dry, rich clothes, are welcomed to a barbeque and invited to ride the horse. Annie behaves well in front of these friendly strangers, while Candy is her cheeky self. During the horseriding, Annie suggests Candy they could ask Mr. Brighton to adopt them both so they can stay together forever. The idea of leaving Pony's Home angers Candy. The two girls fight and argue and Candy runs off back to Pony's Home, where she comes upon Sister Mary searching for little John who has disappeared during Annie's and Candy's absence. Candy discovers him sleeping up in the big Pony tree where he waited to be the first to see Annie and Candy return from their outing.

The generous Mr. Brighton visits Pony's Home to build a barbeque in their garden, so that all the orphans can enjoy shish-kebabs.

Although Mr. Brighton spent little time with Candy he warmed to her lively, generous nature and hopes to convince his wife Jane in adopting her during a visit to the orphanage. Annie who listens at the door when Miss Pony reveals Mr. Brighton's wishes to Candy has her worst fears come true. But Candy makes sure she will not be separated from Annie: when Mr. Brighton introduces Candy to his wife during his next visit, Candy pretends she wets her bed every night. Miss Pony try to reason with Mrs. Brighton, but she refuses to consider adopting a girl that either wets her bed or tells lies. Meanwhile the quiet and polite Annie has caught Mrs. Brighton's eye, and the Brightons choose to adopt her. Unlike Candy, Annie wants a family over staying with Candy. Feeling betrayed, Candy runs off at night, in the rain, but Annie searches her and apologizes for having been envious of Candy. Still she asks Candy's permission to go and live with the Brightons. Realizing that it would make Annie truly happy, she gives her blessing and will take care of Annie's pet raccoon Klint, since Mrs. Brighton does not like animals. Eventually the day comes that Mrs. Brighton comes to fetch Annie neatly dressed in new clothes - and warned not to pet the dirty raccoon - back to the Brighton estate in the carriage, and the two girls have to wave goodbye at each other.

Night and day, Candy dreams of being reunited with Annie and harasses the mailman Matthew daily to check his bag for a letter from Annie.

The arrival of Candy's letter in reply prompts Mrs. Brighton to tell Annie that, though people know she was adopted, she does not people to ever find out she lived at Pony's Home. And so, Annie writes her last letter to Candy telling her that she must break all contact with Pony's Home. Distraught, Candy runs off into the hills and forest. A young man dressed in a kilt and blowing bagpipes finds her in the forest. The handsome "prince" plays a song for her and makes her smile. He tells her she is prettier when she smiles than when she cries. When the wind takes Annie's last letter, Candy runs after it, but when she returns the blond prince has vanished. The pendant with a small bell that he dropped by accident is the sole evidence she has that he exists. Back at at Pony's Home, she is as flabbergasted by the car parked there: the hood carries the same sign as the prince's pendant. A representative of the Leagan family from Lakewood has come to inform Miss Pony that the Leagans are interested in adopting Candy as a playmate for their daughter.

The second incident at the Leagan residence involves the servant girl Dorothy whom Candy tries to defend. Because Dorothy is afraid of the repercussions if she backs up Candy's version, Candy is forced to beg for forgiveness on her knees. While the children are cruel, and Mrs. Leagan prejudiced, Mr. Leagan is more neutral and convinced that Candy is exactly the type of friend his children need.

Candy attempts to leave him in the forest and binds him to a tree to keep him from following her, but cannot find it in her heart to leave him. Instead, Candy hides Klint in the barn. But she throws all caution in the wind after receiving a letter from Pony's Home and runs to the barn to share the letter. Dressed to ride, Neil and Eliza witness Klint following Candy out of the stables. They pester her to the brink of tears, first by taking away her letters, then her prince's pendant after she dropped as she reached for the letter. They blackmail her into choosing between the pendant or Klint. Candy is able to retrieve the pendant from Neil before running off, her course set for Pony's Home . . . if not for seeing her prince in a red coat appearing at some grand rose gates.

Remembering Mrs. Leagan telling her she still has a lot to learn before being accepted as a true Leagan, she resolves to become elegant. Then she will be worthy to befriend her prince. When Mrs. Leagan and her children return from their outing, Mr. Leagan notices Candy is not amongst them. After an argument with Mrs. Leagan, Mr. Leagan preoccupies himself with Candy and asks her about the bread. Candy takes him to the stables to introduce him to Klint and procures his consent for Klint to live in the stables and garden. While Mr. Leagan is away on business, Candy exercises night and day with a book on her head to walk as elegant as Mrs. Leagan. She makes such headway that even Mrs. Leagan is compelled to take notice and yet puts Candy's efforts down: mimicking elegance like a monkey does not make her elegant. Meanwhile, Eliza points out that Candy constantly seeks out the company of the servants and refuses to be Eliza's playmate. And so Mrs. Leagan decides to downgrade Candy to a servant. When Candy overhears Eliza telling the news to Neil, Candy wanders, distressed, to the gates of the Ardlay estate that are always closed, in the hope to meet her prince. She decides to explore for another possible entrance and discovers two more, all closed. When she pulls the chain of the third portal, a flood gate, she ends up having to rescue a young man.

However, Archi's driving and the car are not in the best shape. After several blowtires, they land with the car in the pond, and Alistear suggests a shortcut through the forest. Hopping from tree to tree, Stear discovers that Candy is even a bigger adept at it than he is. Back home much earlier than Neil and Eliza expected, Candy overhears the servants talking about the old Ardley matron who will take her residence in the Ardley estate near the Leagan home and the ball to welcome her.

Anthony notices her dirty and bruised hands, but she tries to keep the truth secret to him. Meanwhile, Stear almost hits little orphan John in a car accident and drops him off at the Leagans.

Surprisingly, Mrs. Leagan wants Candy to continue the charade: Sister Mary came to visit Candy (in search of John). After Klint leads John into the stable and reveals Candy's secret, Candy makes him promise to keep her secret for her. But Sister Mary does not need John to know the truth: Candy's hands reveal all. In a private conversation with Candy the next day, Sister Mary confesses she wanted to take Candy back home with her originally, but after meeting the Cornwell brothers who took John aside, she thinks Candy has all she needs to be truly happy: friends. They say goodbye and part. Candy realizes Anthony must have made the same conclusions once he had seen her hands, and she fears he will avoid her from now on.

When Candy saves Annie from an awkward scene with Klint seeking her attention, Mrs. Brighton recognizes her and requests a private audience with Candy. She explains that if Annie's origin became public knowledge it could mean social exclusion for Annie, and she begs Candy to keep Annie's secret. The unhappy and timid Annie is not interested in playing with Eliza or Neil. Neil and Eliza press the frightened Annie into horseriding and after Annie mounts Cleopatra with Candy's help, Neil frightens the horse into a panicking gallop with a broken spur he found in the stables. Annie calls for Candy's rescue, and after a long persuit Candy manages to ride alongside, grab the reins and halt Cleopatra. Finally alone, Annie admits to Candy that she is unhappy and cannot forget everything and everyone that ever made her happy, though she tries to forget because it hurts. But Neil and Eliza made Mrs. Brighton and their mother believe Candy caused the incident. Candy attacks Neil over his lies and exhorts a promise from him to never hurt Annie again. Yet Eliza perverts the situation in such a way that either Annie or Candy will have to confess the truth. Mrs. Brighton stops Annie in time from speaking up and suggests they all should forget the nasty incident. An apology from Candy will suffice. To prevent being thrown out of the house and never see Anthony again, Candy apologizes with a curtsy. After Annie leaves with her mother, the old gardener finds Candy crying in her barn. He apologizes for his failure to intercede, but he feared the loss of his job if he had spoken up and reveal the true culprit. Candy explains she mourns the loss of her best friend, not Neil's lies.

Anthony cannot believe Candy stole his roses, but Stear suspects the temptation may have been too great. Full of good intentions, Alistear suggests Candy to apologize to Anthony. Suspecting foul play, Candy confronts Neil at his late breakfast and discovers thorn scratches on Neil's hand. Even Mrs. Leagan is hard-pressed to deny Neil's culpability, until Neil explains them as the result of playing with Sylvia, the family cat. And when Neil notices Annie's ribbon he accuses Candy of having stolen that too. Candy appeals for Anthony's audience, but Stear delivers the mortifying message that Anthony does not want to see her. Devestated now that everybody believes the worst of her, Candy wants to return to Pony's Home with Archi's rowboat and dozes off. Meanwhile, Archi himself found a witness who saw Neil leave the Leagan estate the night before, and the three young men trick Neil into confessing. They start a search party for the now missing Candy and discover the boat is missing, while Candy wakes to the awful realization the river changed into rapid water leading to a huge waterfall. Helplessly she goes over, but luckily the vagabond Albert saves her from drowning and directs her to write him a note in a bottle if she should ever require his assistance in the future before disappearing. Fearing the worst, the three Ardley boys gallop for the waterfall. When she acts happy-go-lucky about her perilous adventure, Anthony slaps her for needlessly endangering herself: does she not realize how much she made them worry? She points out they all shunned her for being a thief.

She writes him a letter, puts it into a bottle, throws it in the river and follows it from the bank, reasoning it will lead her to Albert. But she loses her way in the dark. Luckily, Albert finds her in the morning and takes her to his home, a large but ruined estate of the Ardley family, which he shares with several forest animals. Candy wants to live with Albert, but he prefers to live by himself. It would be better for her to return to the Leagans: some practical lessons in life need to be learned.

Her return to Pony's Home is a pleasant surprise, but when Candy wants to climb the big tree on the hill a rope barrier and a sign keep her off. Their neighbour, Mr. Cartwright, sold the tree to the excentric Mr. Flannigan from Washington. He wants the tree all to himself, because he believes the comfortable tree with great view would surrender the best business ideas. Candy leads the orphans into an insurgency where they all climb the tree and the farm animals charge against the workers preparing the cutting and transportation of Father Tree. Old Mr. Flannigan surprises Candy with his excellent climbing skills. At a stalemate in the treetop, the two negotiate their options. Candy arguments the outlook from the tree is the most beautiful from the Pony hilltop and that it might die on the moving trip. Agreeing with those points, Mr. Flannigan is willing to let the tree remain, if he can move his home: Candy has to choose between either Pony's Home or Pony's Tree remaining. Pondering the matter at the base of the tree, she gets the idea to make it appear as if the tree is dying by painting all the leaves yellow. The ruse almost works, but for the rain that washes all the paint off.

Candy says she chooses to stay here and will refuse to go to Mexico, but Dorothy reminds her that her honor demands that she indeed goes to Mexico.

28 January 1977 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
As they trek through the canyons, Mr. Garcia turns out to be a cold-hearted man and a brute. He has no qualms in hitting Candy and is unwilling to spare any water for Klint or Candy's rose. If Candy wants to keep the roses and raccoon, she will have to share her own ration of water with them. But water is sparse, as the drought-wasted cornfield of the destitute Walters shows. The Walters are to work the same fields in Mexico alongside Candy because of a debt they could not repay to Mr. Garcia. A rainshower is an invitation to halt the tilt cart, gather the fresh downpour as well as shower in it. If only it had rained earlier for the Walters. The pastures they pass become greener and Candy admires the cowboys driving cattle. When Candy returns the wayward calf she captured to the cowboys, Mr. Walter intervenes as Mr. Garcia beats Candy for it. If they had kept the calf, they could have been hanged as cattle thiefs. When Mrs. Walter's baby Jimmy does not stop crying, Candy searches the cowboy camp and asks them for milk to placate the baby's hunger. Jimmy develops a dangerous fever, however, and yet Mr. Garcia refuses to turn back to the nearest town. While Mr. Garcia inspects the bridals, Candy races off with his tilt cart to the town. The doctor can save the baby, but declares Jimmy will die if they continue their journey into Mexico. To prevent the Walters from being split up, Candy sells her Sweet Candy. She uses the proceeds to emancipate the family from their debt and puts them on the train. She herself returns with the tilt cart to the inebriated Mr. Garcia in the desert. When he asks her why she did not escape, Candy explains she had the impression he needs her help too.

Mr. Garcia immediately goes on his way, not even caring about laborers anymore: Candy might render him a lot of money if he sells her to the child traffickers, certainly her cooking skills will be valuable. Not knowing Mr. Garcia's plan, Candy teaches him how to say grace over the dinner she prepared for him and gives him her crucifix. While they sleep, bandits enter their nightcamp.

Admittedly, Mr. George looked like a kind person to Candy, but then again, Mr. Garcia looked mean and yet turned out to be a good man. First appearances may deceive, and they clearly deceive the servants and hotel guests. Eventually, Sam locks her up in the cellar to prevent any more escape attempts. Meanwhile Mr. Garcia arrived at the Ardley estate, interrupting a dance to Eliza's chagrine, and brings the sad news of Candy's abduction. Realizing they cannot afford Pony's Home learning of this, the great-aunt wants Candy saved at all cost. Anthony and the Cornwell brothers set off in Alistear's car, while Candy is being transported eastward to New Orleans. During a sightseeing tour, Sam mentions the Missisipi as a river where people can take a boat towards the Atlantic and Europe. Fearing the worst, Candy escapes once more, this time succesfully hiding in a cartload of hay. Meanwhile, Anthony, Archi and Stear meet Sam who describes Candy to them in his search for her. Candy boards a freight train when she sees Sam's car, unaware that her three friends commandeered it. But the train stops and when Candy is discovered, she runs into a forest. She collapses from exhaustion to wake the next day to the scent of roses - the Ardley rose gates - and into Anthony's arms. Right then Mr. George arrives in Mr. William's car with a letter from Mr. William Ardley who declares Candy as his foster daughter per the request of the three young men who wrote him to adopt her.

18 February 1977 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Ecstatic that she has a family at long last, Candy wakes in seventh heaven of her grand room with a view of the rose garden that Anthony cultivated and a closet full of dresses given by great-aunt Elroy. Perhaps the severe looking woman may not be as bad as she feared. Neil and Eliza still try to persist in their lies and accusations, not even realizing they embarrass great-aunt. Anthony and the Cornwell brothers remind Neil that Candy lives with the Ardleys now as a member of the family, and corner Neil into confessing the truth after all. But the matron leaves to prepare Candy's ball before hearing it. Next, they make Neil beg on his knees for forgiveness, but Candy stops them: without their deception, she would not have been sent to Mexico and Grandfather William would not have adopted her to save her. In the rose garden, Anthony asks Candy about the hilltop prince after she accidentally drops his pendant that confirms the prince must be an Ardley. Anthony envies that another stole Candy's heart first. He also believes Candy only likes him because he looks like her prince. Candy boldly declares she does not care who the prince is, and that she likes Anthony for being Anthony. Later, when the three young men fetch Candy in order to accompany her to the festive dinner table, they are stupified by her beautiful appearance in the green dress that matches her eyes. Stear teases Anthony for having his mouth open, while Anthony thinks that Candy reminds him of his dead mother. When Candy deftly repels Eliza and Neil's antics to make her appear without manners, she becomes so ladylike in Anthony's eyes that he starts to daydream about marriage. Meanwhile, Candy hopes to free her friend Dorothy from servitude and introduce her to great-aunt, but Dorothy explains she volunteered to serve Candy at the Ardley estate because it makes her happy; that happiness is something that each person has to build for oneself.

Next, he tries his luck at the Ardleys, accusing Anthony of being a coward and womanizer. When Candy defends Anthony, Tom takes it as a personal insult and thinks her a snob. Fretting over it, Candy cannot find sleep until Anthony arrives back home. Early the next morning, Anthony meets Tom in the forest to own up for his mistakes. They hold a fist fight that ends at stalemate when both are exchausted and agree to be friends.

Upon delivery, they learn Anthony plans to participate in a rodeo in Tom's village. Stear suggests his latest invention might carry Candy's reply back.

Having learned Anthony's plans, great-aunt Elroy charges Candy with the mission to visit and dissuade Anthony. If she fails she will be held responsible if Anthony gets injured during the rodeo. After Tom puts the risk of injury in perspective, Candy mostly fears that Anthony will never really be able to embrace life under great-aunt's wing. As they discuss the several rodeo contests, including lasso-throwing contest, Candy has the idea to recruit Archi and Stear into joining along with the argument that if they all join the rodeo then great-aunt cannot be angry with Anthony alone. But Great-aunt Elroy sabotages the plans after talking with the organizer who denies them entry into the competitions. But when, per Candy's suggestion - Tom spreads the rumor in town that the Ardleys are cowards and the rodeo becomes a matter of family honor, great-aunt Elroy relents and even cheers on Anthony from her carriage as he attempts to remain in the saddle while bronco-busting and beats Tom.

Instead of wishing for what she supposes will never happen, Candy sends her invitation to Albert. Her next outing to the hill in search of Terry, is as unsuccessful except for Terry's red coat. Trying to keep up with Candy, Eliza stumbles into a pitfall that Neil had meant for Terry. Terry jumps out of his tree to help pull Eliza out of the pit.

How he came to be captured so often is proven by the bag he leaves in plain sight when one of the sailors comes to inspect the mooring for the cargo. Cookie manages to grab his duffel bag before the man notices, but instead drops an apple. Luckily for the two fifteen-year-olds, the sailor thinks little of it. Captain Nieven is not fooled, though, and orders a search, just when Cookie ventures out in search for food.

Cookie attempts to convince Captain Nieven in at least allowing Candy to continue the journey. But when the captain remains with his decision, Cookie abuses him enough to earn himself a spanking. When they cross the other ship, Candy and Cookie have to board the lifeboat and are rowed towards the other. One of the sailors, Viva, disagrees with Captain Nieven's decisions and his partner mentions a friend on the other ship who could help Candy and Cookie. Meanwhile, Captain Nieven receives a telegram containing a storm warning and he halts the mission. During the storm, everybody is in a frenzy to secure the crates, but one of the mooring snaps and several crates fall on top off Cookie who breaks his leg. While Candy tends to Cookie's broken leg, the crew dredges the water that seaped in via a breech in the cargo hold. Cookie fears his leg sustained nerve damage and that he will be a cripple for the rest of his life. After giving medical aid to another wounded sailor, Candy prepares a hearty soup for the crew and brings the last remainder to Cookie, who escaped his cabin to throw himself overboard: he believes he can never become the sailor he always wanted to be and has no reason to live anymore. Candy holds on to Cookie to dear life, almost being dragged overboard, until the captain pulls both back on board and slaps Cookie. He sermons that true sailors do not run away from difficulty, because there is nowhere to run to and others depend on you. While Candy reflects on Terry having a passion for theater, Cookie for the sea, and she simply plods on her road of life to show everyone how strong she is, Viva runs in her cabin to alert her of their upcoming arrival at the US.

As the old man complains about such a chattery nurse with crazy ideas, Candy starts to insist on her relation with him. But when it turns out that her patient is William McGregor who hates the Ardleys, the two soon have a fight with Candy defending the Ardleys, which causes chest pains with McGregor. Because of Candy's unproffesional conduct, Merry Jane gives the responsibility back to Franny and sends Candy off to the park to catch some sun the following day. There she meets an old woman who talks of the time she was in the hospital for half a year: she treated the staff badly, because she felt alone, and yet she would prefer to be ill in the hospital again, because of the kind nurses. Candy starts to realize that William McGregor may be such a grouch for similar reasons. Forgetting all about sunbathing, Candy runs back to the school to ask Merry Jane whether she can tend to Mr. McGregor again.

But Franny reminds her about their homework and informs her of an upcoming war in Europe, including England, that will require nurses in large quantities. Worried for Annie's safety, Candy realizes that she has noone to talk to. Thinking that may be the key, Candy attempts to open up to Mr. McGregor. But it only repulses hm more. Headmistress Merry Jane directs Candy to her office for a commendation of all the hard work that she has done and gives her several letters from her friends at Saint Paul's Academy. Stear tells her how he lost interest in inventions after her disappearance and that Archi did not change clothes for five days. Archi wishes her well, commending her on her choice of profession, and complains about the rules getting stricter by the day.

Meanwhile, Annie is frightened of the preparation for the possible upcoming war with Germany. She wants to return to America. Mr. McGregor's turn for the worse demands Candy's attention. And while he endures crisis after crisis, the old grouch keeps calling for Miena. Candy thinks it might ease Mr. McGregor's anxieties while battling his crisis, and request to go in search for this Miena at his home.

More, Miena climbs in the carriage on her own accord and is unwilling to getback down, to the coachman's despair. It turns out that Mr. McGregor was driven to the hospital in that particular carriage. Seeing her opportunity, Candy asks the driver to carry them to the hospital. Once there, Candy takes over from Franny again and accepts with patience Franny's reproof of her being so irresponsible to chase after relatives that cannot be found. Once Franny is out of the way, Candy smuggles Miena into Mr. McGregor's room. But Miena's barking alerts Merry Jane and Dr. Frank. Luckily, Candy managed to hide Miena right on time under the bed. Once the coast is clear again, Candy softly wakes Mr. McGregor who makes a speedy recovery after seeing, petting and talking to Miena. Before long, Candy can take Mr. McGregor for a tour in the garden to admire the trees blooming with blossoms. He is happy, feeling well enough to return back home, and now regards Candy as a friend.

Her mind only partly at the tasks at hand, Candy does her nickname "clumsy" honor. Merry Jane's advice is not as cold as that of Franny, but she does tell Candy that a nurse cannot let the loss of one patient affect her work: some patients die, others go back home, and Candy needs to find a way to deal and internalize it. In the case of Mr. McGregor, it was known beforehand that he could never cure from his illness. But Merry Jane understands that this was the first patient Candy lost, and she sends Candy back to Pony's Home. Before leaving for Pony's Home though, Candy decides to take a detour to Mr. McGregor's house. At arrival, she discovers that Miena attacked the overseer who was dividing Mr. McGregor's possessions, and that they are hunting after Miena to shoot her for posing a danger to them. Candy tries to explain that Miena only is doing her task - protecting her master's property - but to no avail. However, Candy knows something the others don't: the secret lake where Mr. McGregor used to take Miena fishing with him. Indeed, there she encounters Miena and before anybody can do her harm, she leaves with the dog to take her to Pony's Home.

Having her sentimental reverie interjected into while writing a letter explaining the upcoming trip to Chicago sets the stage for Candy to realize the tempestuous labyrinth within Franny whose mastery of the covert academic and administrative aspects of being a nurse is a poor substitute for the overt social aspect that comes naturally to Candy who is at a loss for how to help Franny. The next morning finds that the other three nurses are anxious about what they will encounter at Saint Joanna Hospital and it does not help matters that Candy's happy-go-lucky attitude has drawn Franny's ire on multiple occasions.

While Merry Jane watches from afar, Candy has it demonstrated through resolving the messy aftermath of Franny forcing her hand that medical treatment is a collaborative exercise for the patient that requires both tactfulness and honesty. Impressed by the architecture but disgusted with the cold bureaucratic ambiance, Candy cries foul after seeing how Saint Joanna Hospital deals with minor emergencies before leading Franny in taking matters into their own hands.

14 April 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
The euphoric morning concluding Candy and Annie's nocturnal slumber abruptly sours upon Annie's discovery of the rope ladder having been taken away and thus marooning the girls in the tree house -- a problem easily conquered thanks to Alistear's foresight. While Neil and Eliza fume at their prank backfiring, the Cromwell brothers have brunch with the girls and decide to spend Candy's last day of vacation at the lake only to find that the Adley Grand-Aunt has decided upon the same idea. Archibald's gallows humor regarding Alistear's invention gives way to the four adolescents enjoying themselves at the lake and deciding to end the day with a party. Eliza accosts the quartet with the volition of their presence at a dinner party of her design -- a dinner party the Cromwell brothers suspect is another of Neil and Eliza's pranks. Never having backed down from a challenge, Candy agrees to attend the party and leads Annie through a lesson in emotional integrity. One of the guests, the military physician Michael, agrees with the Cromwell brothers' casual attire and thinks well of Candy as a practice nurse. Thanks to Alistear and Michael's collaborative intercession during her dangerous descent down the tower with Annie's suitcase, Candy ultimately defeats Neil's treachery and returns to Saint Joanna Hospital with an even more formidable resolve to become a consummate nurse.
78 Terry's melody
"Terī no merodī" (テリーのメロディー)
28 April 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Candy has barely entered the building after her inverse-Rapunzel adventure before she encounters a frenzied hen convention instigated by a bus having collided with several cars. Unfortunately for Candy, the casualties in surgery or otherwise taken care of does very little to quell Franny's perspective of Candy as an aristocrat who thinks of being a nurse as a hobby. Franny prosecutes an adversarial divergent concourse with Candy over how to have best spent the two days of down time and delivers a searing »Grow up and get serious, Candy!!!« admonition before resuming her studies. Candy soon finds that Franny's reproof along with Natalie and Judy collaboratively freezing her out the next morning only serves as the preamble for the political obstacle course she has to successfully prosecute if she wants to go see Terry in action. While Candy resolves her anguish over her first attempt being foiled and computes her next move, it becomes apparent that the starstruck Terry is prosecuting his own battles during the train ride to Chicago. The inattentive Candy and Terry making clumsy mistakes on their respective jobs obfuscates Eliza's retaliatory subterfuge during her search for Terry who is disgusted at the hypocrisy of »charity shows« whose tickets are priced out of the plebeian's reach as he explains to Susanna the prologue behind the harmonica. The deus ex machina comes when Candy is forced to intercede for a patient against her will only to discover that Natalie is willing to prosecute the shift interchange because of her disgust for Eliza's attempt to buy her cooperative goodwill.
79 The shadow under the spotlight
"Chūmoku o abite kage" (注目を浴びて影)
5 May 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
The office politics that Candy has had to prosecute for the nocturnal outing to even be possible are the least of Candy's worries during the mad dash to Elmore Theatre who has zero tolerance for stragglers. Even with Terry's passive recalcitrance inhibiting the schedule in his disgust at the upper-level spectator booths going unused, Candy's troubles take on another dimension when the Adley Grand-Aunt's frostily repulses her from sitting with Annie and the Cromwell brothers -- the latter attempting to intercede on Candy's behalf. Disgusted with being the subject of Adley family politics, Candy races off alone to search around for an alternate observation perspective. While watching him in action, Candy sentimentally reflects upon her collaborative prologue with Terry and decides to catch up on old times with him after the show. Between the austere »Halt your advance and be on your way!!!« repulsion from a stage hand and the frenzied hen convention as Terry egresses the Theatre, Candy soon finds that approaching Terry is easier said than done. Her demeanor as damaged and shaken up as her evening gown, Candy walks the streets alone in defeat. The deus ex machina is the handkerchief that Terry had used in London to aid Candy who left it behind in her haste after seeing him in action from the upper-level booths; after putting two and two together, Terry races off in search of Candy.
80 A moment of reunion
"Saikai no shunkan" (再会の瞬間)
12 May 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
While Susanna tries to wrap her mind around the rationale behind Terry's affinity for Candy, Terry berates himself for his earlier error as he desperately searches for Candy. It is not long before Terry encounters Annie and the Cromwell brothers who are also searching for Candy where it is explained that Candy is a practice nurse at Saint Joanna Hospital whose architecture has glaring parallels to Saint Paul Academy. Terry has it demonstrated that Candy has indeed wasted no time in making her mark when Franny arrives to discover Natalie prosecuting Candy's shift before attempting to frostily repel Terry from awaiting Candy's return only to discover that he gives as good as he gets. While Terry reflects on his collaborative prologue with her in London and laments the disadvantages of his young age, Candy begins to realize the folly and futility of continuing to aimlessly wander the streets alone before deciding to search around for the hotel Terry is residing in. It is during this search that Candy and Susanna encounter each other for the first time as respectful rivals -- the latter acknowledging her feelings for Terry while the former leaves behind a commendation for the excellent exhibition before returning to the Hospital to find that her nocturnal odyssey has placed Franny and Natalie in an awkward position that nearly jeopardizes her employment. The deus ex machina sees its roots in an altruistic coachman that is well-versed in the route Terry's train will avail out of town so that Candy can catch one final glimpse of Terry.
81 Faceless Terrius
"-Gao no nai Terrius" (顔のないTerrius)
19 May 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Upon returning to Saint Joanna Hospital, Candy quickly finds that not being able to see Terry for a long time is the least of her worries as Dr. Bobson angrily orders her out of class for her tardy arrival before being frostily repulsed from volunteering her assistance with a patient who has fallen from a moving train. Upon having the patient described to her, Candy concludes that it has to have been Terry that fell from the train and races to the operating room only to have Natalie hefted unto her along with Franny barking administrative orders along with a blistering reproof. Just as Candy's inquisitive entreaties of Terry are starting to bear fruit, Eliza arrives to explain that she will be taking responsibility for Terry since his troupe did not come to see about him. Candy quickly finds that her perversion of Eliza's rejoinder is the preamble of Eliza's coercive subterfuge -- the scope of which Natalie and Judy are having demonstrated upon them. Alistear's arrival at the Hospital the next morning prompts Candy to set the ball rolling to investigate the matter while Eliza continues to throw her weight around: the »Terry« in the Hospital is actually Charlie Sanders hiding in plain sight after having broken out of prison to join the army. Candy tries to dissuade Charlie from his deception unaware that Eliza is fuming over her confrontation with Franny and has decided upon her next counterstrike after learning the truth: Candy's departure from Chicago for Eliza's silence. Candy again tries to reason with Charlie only to ultimately find that Eliza has forced her hand; the police take Charlie into custody while Candy herself finds her future in jeopardy for aiding and abetting a fugitive thanks to Eliza.

26 May 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Things rapidly go from bad to worse as Charlie's accusations of Candy of betraying him make a huge hullabaloo while the police transport him back to prison . . . or at least they would have if not for Dr. Bobson's timely intercession which Candy capitalizes upon to begin her redemption. Unfortunately for Candy, Charlie's epiphany that Candy herself is an ally that has a couple of devious adversaries does nothing to quell his frustration at the whole situation of his uncertain future while Eliza confirms her subterfuge and appends an additional element -- Charlie's medical bill whose default will unleash the Adley family's wrath upon Pony's Home. After demonstrating that destructive repulsion attempts are ineffective alongside Dr. Bobson, Candy rushes to intercede for a patient that has made an income engine of synthesizing artificial flowers and decides to try her hand only to find that it is of much greater difficulty than initially meets the eye. Charlie confronting Candy during one of her failed attempts makes very apparent his guilt over Candy's imperiled future and that the synthesis of artificial flowers is a significant element of his prologue. His suspicions confirmed by Neil's arrival the next morning to exacerbate Eliza's earlier subterfuge and Candy trying to play it down drives Charlie to take vengeance on Candy's behalf after concluding that he has nothing left to lose. Candy and Charlie finally being honest with each other inspires the deus ex machina of Terry sending a check to resolve Charlie's medical bill along with an exposition of Terry's recent venture along with his collaborative prologue with Charlie who has been taken back to jail.
83 The ghost who played cards
"Kādo o pureigōsuto" (カードをプレイゴースト)
2 June 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
After having her professional future jeopardized because of Charlie's subterfuge and hysterics, one would think that Candy would have smooth sailing from that point on now that Charlie is back in custody. Candy is writing a letter back to Pony's Home while prosecuting the night shift when she encounters a little boy named Tony Charles whose volition of her is a seemingly innocous game of poker to help pass the time only to have it demonstrated after several hands that Tony is a consummate card shark when it comes to poker. Left with a debt of 15 cents and a lot of questions, Candy begins searching around the Internal Medicine Department for information about Tony the next morning only to find that the only Tony that has been documented has been deceased for a month along with an admonition for greater vigilance from Franny who has detected her recent passtime. Unwlling to accept that he is a ghost that thinks nothing of forcing her to offer her employment as a gambling stake, Candy confronts Tony with the data she has learned that day and insists upon the truth which she has explained to her when Tony leaps to the tree and then the fence as if he has a long history of such acrobatics. Unfortunately, Candy's newfound data about Tony as an interloper is not enough to stave off the »Shape up and act your age!!!« admonition for her investigation efforts. Shocked to find that Candy is not as sweet as her name suggests during his third visit because of the foregoing aftermath, Tony confesses his prologue that confirms the data Candy already has but is forced to take shelter when Dr. Bobson shows up with the volition for Candy's company. Tony's true objective is acquiring expensive medicine for his infirm mother to avoid a stay in the hospital . . . a noble volition if not for the political aftermath it causes Candy and that the stolen medicine becomes dangerous with doses in excess of a half-gram. The deus ex machina lies in a security guard whose insight that helps quickly locate Tony's mother so that she gets the care she needs after having her stomach pumped along with Dr. Bobson's necessity-driven professional philosophy regarding medical care.

A panicking Judy rushes in on Candy and Franny prosecuting routine administrative commerce with the news that Saint Joanna Hospital has been ordered to contribute some nurses to the front line before Franny frostily explains that nothing definite has been decided yet before departing. Making a note to later take up the issue with Franny, Candy is charged an aesthetic stewardship of a former nurse named Marsha that lost a leg in the war and is upset that there are more soldiers that need the very medical attention she is having done unto her; reflecting upon the expository concourse later that night, Candy has difficulty sleeping unaware that the same can be said of Franny. The next morning, Candy races off to class to compensate for having overslept only to encounter Merry Jane whose reproof for running in the halls gives way to explicit orders for a nurse to be sent to France. Candy reflects upon Marsha's prologue from being on the battlefield along with the history she has built up with everybody important to her and decides to volunteer; just as Candy announces her decision, Merry Jane has decided upon Franny to leave for France in two days. Candy volunteers to interchange night shifts to give Franny time to resolve things with her family and friends -- something that Franny either does not understand or detect any utility for. Candy decides to have a heart-to-heart with Franny whose nuclear family of origin is a dysfunctional liability that will not mourn her if she is killed in action. The ultimate deus ex machina is that Franny begins to understand Candy's »meddling« as genuine concern for her safety while Candy realizes that Franny frostily repulsing her sympathy is an admonition that there is a point at which keeping one's family near and dear to the heart becomes counterproductive; despite Franny being too proud to embrace Candy as a friend, it becomes apparent that Franny and Candy have a cohesive professional relationship that will help them to become consummate nurses.

30 June 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Candy lying awake at night unnerved at the proximity of the War as she reflects upon her collaborative prologue with Franny gives way to having it demonstrated that she is not the only one frightened for Franny's safety. Candy recalls the previous divergent concourse she prosecuted with Franny about her family prior to her departure and decides that it is wrong of Franny to not give her family the choice to be anxious for her safety; a brief database query later, Candy sets course for Franny's home. Alistear has been left the odd man out and is driving around to kill time when he encounters Candy; upon having the situation of the necessary travel distance being not at all insignificant explained to him, Alistear offers to transport Candy only for the car to malfunction. The car now ready to go, Candy has it explained that Patricia has written Alistear with the volition of nostalgic convergent concourse with her; after another layover, Alistear and Candy arrive in Franny's hometown just in time to have demonstrated for them the wild antics of Franny's brother and Governor Hamilton's inebriated shenanigans landing him in hot water with Governess Hamilton whose anguish about Franny deciding things on her own is greatly amplified when a newly-arrived care package explains Franny's war nurse deployment. Candy quickly capitalizes on the care package to refute Governess Hamilton's imputes of Franny's heartlessness. Governess Hamilton ultimately comes to understand the significance of her daughter's actions while Candy walks away with insight about Franny's nuclear family; unfortunately, Candy's intercession for Franny does little to prepare her for Albert being among the first war casualties she personally has to care for.

After finally rousing herself from her bewilderment, Candy races off after Albert only to have the tame skunk Poope flung her way and for Dr. Leonard to explain that Albert will be housed in an unpleasant ward of the Hospital because of the suspicions of being a spy. Candy cries foul as she tries to explain her prologue with Albert which contains none of the data that helps to resolve the administrative logistics nor the political tempest caused by Charlie Sanders as evidenced by Judy and Natalie enjoining Candy's neutrality in the matter; a layover to deposit Poope later, Candy has it explained to her that Albert is collateral damage from a train in Italy being bombed when he was trying to protect Poope. Because of the limited data about Albert, Judy suspects that Albert is a spy and again enjoins Candy for her neutrality who angrily shrugs it off as she sets to her duties only to find that Albert has quickly become St. Joanna Hospital community discourse as a pariah and that there is little anybody can do unless Albert wakes up. The ambiance lightens a bit when the Cromwell brothers lead Annie through pretending to be patients in order to deliver Patricia for a visit -- that is, if their subterfuge is not first extinguished by the other nurses. Patricia's remarks about the quiescence that is America and its vast contrast of war-torn Europe get Alistear to think about offering himself for military service when Candy breaks down crying as she explains Albert's plight. Unfortunately, Alistear fuming about the injustice of the whole situation while Archibald offers his future assistance along with Annie and Patricia yields no straightforward solutions other than playing things from ear; galvanized by this conviction, Candy gathers some clean linen along with some sustenance and walks into an astonishing deus ex machina -- a wide awake but perplexed Albert that has not repudiated both Poope and her on the spot.
87 Two people's trial
"2-Nin no saiban" (2 人の裁判)
14 July 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Albert regaining consciousness enough to refrain from repulsing her compassion on the spot is cold comfort to Candy who is left with little choice but to play things by ear -- a choice that attracts Dr. Leonard's attention. While Dr. Leonard is computing how to broach the issue, Candy finds Albert hard at work trying to recall his prologue with Poope squeaking encouragement and wonders if Terry could help jog Albert's memory as she recalls the prologue the two built in London. The situational logistics thereof are easier contemplated than conducted when Terry has explained to him that there will be an audition for »Romeo and Juliet«. Susanna is galvanized at the prospect of playing Juliet with Terry as Romeo oblivious to that epilogue's high-precision nature as Terry races off to verify Susanna's advisory with thoughts of entertaining Candy while playing Romeo. Candy's euphoria at learning of this volition is tempered by having to navigate the office politics necessary for a leave of absence -- easier said than done considering Dr. Leonard's caustic reproof of Candy's subterfuge in defiance of the rules. Reeling from Dr. Leonard's »Pass the test -- or else!!!« admonition, the aggrieved Candy fiercely sets to her studies only to find that Albert has fallen into melancholy from her absence. Be it the nurse qualification or the prominent Romeo role, Candy and Terry ultimately find that they have no choice but to exert their utmost effort without regard to the ensuing epilogue.

Candy exerts her utmost effort to do her job amid the ambiance of the nurse qualification test as she acknowledges her anxiety for both Terry's professional future along with her own. Meanwhile in New York, Terry is elated that he has secured the Romeo role with Susanna as Juliet but is shocked to learn that his mother Eleanor Baker has sat in on the audition and possibly polluted the politics. Terry inquiring the director about this prospect is the preamble for having it explained that there is no potential for any subterfuge in showbiz and that an actor's career expires when his talent does. While Terry reiterates his resolve for a professional career that rivals his mother's, Candy's elation at Terry attaining the Romeo role is enhanced by having it explained that all the students of the Merry Jane Nursing School have successfully conquered the nurse qualification test including Franny, as an unexpected bonus, Merry Jane has even arrived to personally award the competency certificates to Candy along with Natalie, Judy, and Eleanor with the admonition that their real professional journey begins in earnest from that point forward. While Merry Jane reads Candy the riot act for her conduct and enjoins the best of her as Pony's Home is celebrating the milestone, Alistear has decided to congratulate Candy by conscripting her into the maiden test flight of a biplane of his own design. Candy naturally panics into running away but to no avail as Alistear is not taking no for an answer; while the test flight starts off well, Alistear's biplane is not immune to malfunctioning at the most inopportune moment as is usually the case with Alistear's other inventions. Candy's aerial adventure ultimately does very little to prepare her for a big surprise when she returns to St. Joanna's Hospital -- Albert gone without a trace.

Things look up when Candy remembers Albert's affinity for natural areas and sets course for the city park where she finds Albert reflecting on his recent prologue after the clouds clear from the moon. After she finishes her »Do not ever repeat this!!!« tantrum, Candy explains her prologue with Albert who is grateful for her help and postpones his journey upon remembering how he felt when near Candy who finds that housing Albert is easier said than done thanks to Dr. Leonard's conversion of the ward into a storage room. Candy ultimately learns that the rehabilitation a patient undergoes is far more about the resolute perseverance of the patient rather than where he is housed.

Candy gets a smoky demonstration of very mercenary capitalism as she is refused yet again while searching for a place to house Albert so that he can concentrate on getting his memory back. After being harshly refused by Mr. Thomas who appears to be a sympathetic and reasonable landlord, Candy recalls how Albert used to sleep outside and suggests spending the night in the park -- the folly thereof demonstrated when a pair of hoodlums accosts for money. Albert deftly repels the hoodlums while Candy recalls his intercession for Terry back in London and unsuccessfully tries to coach him through recalling Terry. The hoodlums driven into a panicked retreat, Candy has explained to her the Cromwell brothers' intercession on her behalf with Mr. Thomas. Albert having a residence is cold comfort to Dr. Leonard becoming suspicious of Candy's decision to reside with Albert as a house nurse; even with Dr. Leonard in the dark, the cohabitation proves to have many complex logistics -- one of which takes the form of a jealous Susanna Marlowe deciding to keep from Terry a letter Candy wrote explaining the whole situation with Albert. Unfortunately for Candy, Susanna's conscience eventually winning out and Terry not being hostile to the cohabitation ultimately does very little to compensate for Dr. Leonard bringing things to a head with the dangerous opportunity he gives her.

Dr. Leonard quickly detects Candy's subsequent subterfuge and is none too pleased with the attempt; fortunately, Candy sees her deus ex machina in the charge nurse rushing in with the news of Catherine's battlefield demise and makes a hasty retreat to the nurse's station where she finds reinforcements for her subsequent attempt. Now back on the Hospital payrolls and her diurnal workload reconfigured, Candy decides to surprise Albert with the good news -- or would have if he were not nowhere to be seen. While prowling the streets in search of Albert, Candy intercedes for Neil against a trio of street thugs who is not exactly appreciative but has been given pause to reflect on his conduct. While Susanna realizes her love for Terry, Candy ultimately finds that the irony of the situation is that she had only to await Albert's return home from work.

Alistear's car noisily malfunctioning in front of the Hospital sets the stage for Candy to unsuccessfully object Alistear's enlistment and decide upon availing shock therapy to help Albert regain his memory; several practical jokes on Candy's part along with a disruptive train accident simulation on Alistear's part later, Candy has it explained that Alistear wishes Albert's assistance in convincing Elroy to support his enlistment. Patricia weeps as the situation continues to deteriorate and is hardly thrilled about going on a picnic with everybody; still, even with the van malfunctioning and Alistear's invention malfunctioning, the ultimate irony is that it is this very picnic that becomes the deus ex machina for Candy learning the prologue of her landlord along with Alistear finally understanding how Patricia feels and Albert continuing to recover.

Along with discovering the next morning that Marsha is also a custodian at the Hospital, Candy is shocked at Marsha's aristocratic childhood prologue and how Marsha plans to play Cupid with both Candy and Terry. Unfortunately, as per Murphy's Law, Marsha's plan ends up with Patricia on a train that has broken down in Pittsburgh and Marsha at the point where she no longer has the choice about how to live her life.

Now guilty for what he is forcing Candy to do, Gilbert tries to stop her and only succeeds when the conductor exhorts medical assistance on behalf of an infirm child named Carrie.

It seems that Karen is quite upset that Susanna is a far better politician than actress -- and that Candy has done her job as confidante a bit too well as Karen has decided to detain Candy until the conclusion of the New York show.

After yielding her seat on the train and playing the music box to placate a baby, Candy goes off alone into the vestibule to reflect upon her recent break-up with Terry before her fever becomes too much for her to stay conscious. Candy recovers herself somewhat only to find that her near-successful contraction of pneumonia stands shoulder to shoulder with Alistear's enlistment in the army whose possibly fatal aspects have Patricia beside herself in anguish; if that is not enough, Grand-Aunt Elroy arrives to visit unto Candy her anxiety for Alistear's safety as she charges Candy eternal exile from the Adley family estate and calls a family meeting upon the Leagan siblings' return. The irony in this is that while he gets right to the heart of the matter when he remarks that Candy would not have been happy with Terry abandoning Susanna, Albert ultimately ends up adding to her anguish when he wanders into the path of a hit-and-run motorist.
101 A thread of subtle recollections
"Bimyō na omoide no sureddo" (微妙な思い出のスレッド)
27 October 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Upon being awakened by a hysterical neighbor with the news that Albert has been hit by a car, Candy rushes over to Happy Clinic where she is dismayed to find that Albert is being cared for in a rather substandard medical facility administrated by the carefree but knowledgeable Dr. Martin who does not think that Albert's non-cranial injuries are very serious; while asleep, Albert recalls the details of the train accident that took his memory away. While Albert recognizes Candy right away as he offers his sweater to help resolve her bad cold as he accompanies her home, Candy's psychological needs to help her get over Terry are not as straightforward; still, Candy is not shy about obfuscating her worries through a heavy workload that even a stern taskmaster like Dr. Leonard cannot ignore as he wonders what has come over Candy. Archibald paying a lunchtime visit with Annie and Patricia to deliver a letter from Alistear of military life being more demanding than he expected sets the stage for stumbling upon the heart of the matter with Terry much to Candy's anguish; the ultimate irony is that Dr. Leonard has somehow reasoned that Candy could use an opportunity to broaden her horizons away from St. Joanna's Hospital -- if Candy heeds Albert's counsel to keep her head in the game.
102 The cross on Pony's Hill
"Ponī no oka no jūjika" (ポニーの丘の十字架)
3 November 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
While riding en route to the Graytown construction site, the train is forced into a quarter-hour layover because of Tom guiding his bovine herd back to his farm on the other side of the tracks; Mina's slobbery greeting gives way to Tom's earnest but unsuccessful injunction against going to Graytown because of the criminals and difficult conditions there. Frightened for Candy's safety, Tom explains that Sister Pony is in a bad way as he takes Candy to get a horse so she can ride to Pony's Home; Candy cresting Pony's Hill and seeing Pony's Home quickly gives way to encountering a wooden cross with Sister Pony's name on it. Upon Sister Lane explaining the cross as a coping mechanism on the part of an orphan named Bob, Candy composing her own rave review becomes the preamble for learning Bob's prologue of illiteracy along with Tom's deception; after some computation, Candy wields Bob's iconoclastic coping mechanism to her advantage with a commission to construct a signboard for the Graytown Clinic. Sisters Pony and Lane are frightened for Candy's safety while in Graytown but ultimately realize that a ship is not built to sit in the harbor.
103 A long and life-risking journey
"To seimei o kiken ni sarasu nagai tabi" (と生命を危険にさらす長い旅)
10 November 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
In spite of the Pony's Home community injunction against traveling to Graytown, the divide between Candy's personal safety and her professional career of humanitarian service at Pony's Home does nothing to change the necessity or nature of the situation in Graytown. Candy sets off once again towards Graytown only to find that Kurin has stowed away and that there is an elderly gentleman called Kurin that explains the necessity of Candy moving toward the front of the train if she wishes passage to Graytown. It is not long before Candy and Kurin find that the journey to Graytown stands shoulder-to-shoulder with their previous adventures when they discover a wanted criminal on the train and no conductor to help them; if that was not enough, the stationmaster inadvertently endangers Candy's life by taking her into an active blasting zone administrated by a foreman that cares more for the equipment than his workers and has similar contempt for nurses. The ultimate silver lining in the hostile welcome Candy gets is the »wanted criminal« Dr. Kerry taking Candy under her wing to capitalize upon the deus ex machina of a worker being injured in a blasting accident.
104 A clinic that doesn't need angels
"Tenshi o hitsuyō to shi nai shinryō-sho" (天使を必要としない診療所)
17 November 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Even after a successful surgery, Candy finds that there is much in Graytown that raises some red flags such as the men automatically assuming that accidents are always fatal and that a doctor is always fed much better than a nurse; while the foreman fumes at his persecution being thwarted as he computes his next move, Candy discovers that Dr. Kerry has a prologue of her own involving her brother Arthur being declared a criminal for challenging an unjust termination. Even though Arthur has not broken any laws, Dr. Kerry wants to explain to him that being a fugitive will only aggravate the problem that quickly ends up taking a back seat to finding that all the workers have decided to avail themselves of the TLC that Candy has somehow been known for the next morning. Unfortunately for the prankster workers, Candy has learned how to detect this kind of subterfuge; perverting the workers' practical joke to their detriment with the help of the foreman gives way to Candy's euphoric account of her adventures in Graytown so far. While Dr. Kerry being galvanized into rushing to the rescue by Archibald and Annie's encounter with Arthur in Chicago during their home commute is not exactly according to the Foreman's plan, it ultimately isolates Candy into an ambush in the tunnels where she is captured.
105 A kind fugitive
"Shurui tōbō-sha" (種類逃亡者)
24 November 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
In spite of the overwhelmingly dystopian epilogue of her continued recalcitrance, Candy obdurately refuses to capitulate to the Foreman's departure demands; while the complacent Foreman divides his energies between gouging himself and gloating about his victory, Kurin somehow senses something amiss with Candy whose emancipation ignites a frenzied chase sequence -- the zenith of which is the Foreman's dog McKinley cornering Candy. Even with Arthur's intercession abating the Foreman's vendetta with her for the moment, Candy promises to not blow the whistle on him oblivious to the fact that she may soon have the choice taken away from her if Eliza has things her way. In an absolute twist of irony, McKinley falling ill forces the Foreman to eat humble pie as he entreats Candy a medical intercession for McKinley -- the wages thereof a hearty breakfast for both Candy and Arthur the next morning compliments of the very grateful Foreman. While the medical intercession to catalyze McKinley's recovery has helped him to fit in at the Graytown construction site, Arthur ultimately cannot extinguish the declaration of a fugitive murderer nor the fate of souring the professional and personal fortunes of any good Samaritan that tries to help him -- especially Candy who is an authentic philanthropist with devious enemies.
106 Yet another murderer
"Shika shi,-betsu no satsujin" (しかし、別の殺人)
1 December 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
While still having a ways to go, McKinley has no qualms about repaying Arthur's medical intercession on his behalf by alerting him to the presence of his injured sister -- an emergency that the Foreman and the other workers are eager to assist in resolving. While the workers compute a perspective of Dr. Kerry's true gender before Kurin growls a »Keep that sexism in the barn, boys!!!« admonition, Arthur is shocked to have explained to him that a pair of tithingmen is on its way to capture him; if that is not enough, the Foreman is enraged at this data being kept from him and orders Arthur's capture much to Dr. Kerry's anguish. The deus ex machina that ironically works in Arthur's favor is that Graytown is a dead end; neither the tithingmen nor Arthur can go anywhere unless the tunnel is finished -- a task completed in record time. Arthur and Dr. Kerry's successful escape from being arrested for their criminal conduct obfuscates the ultimate irony of Arthur not being the only fugitive in Graytown who accidentally killed somebody; the cook Margot killed an inebriate while trying to protect her daughter Belle.
107 A special menu for one hundred people
"100-Nin no tame no tokubetsu menyū" (100人のための特別メニュー)
8 December 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
While Candy tries to compile compassionate counsel for her, Belle is distraught at Margot being arrested for protecting her as a baby; if that is not enough, Graytown is left without a cook even if Belle does her best to put on a brave face. Meanwhile back in Chicago, Eliza is shocked to find that the joke is on her when her subterfuge has backfired on her as she finds herself facing a very upset Archibald; unfortunately for Belle, Eliza facing the music does nothing to change the fact that she cannot stay in Graytown with no guardian to take responsibility for her. In spite of her best efforts in this arena, Candy's inability to do both Margot's job and hers even with Belle helping her quickly extinguishes any prospect of productive recalcitrance against the Foreman charging transportation of Belle into the city to find a foster family for her along with a replacement cook; the next morning, Candy divides her energies between grappling with her conscience and keeping a happy face for Belle who thinks that she is going to Margot. The train out of Graytown being behind schedule ultimately becomes the ironic deus ex machina for Candy to follow her conscience in taking Belle back home and solving the problem of feeding the workers when Annie and Archibald offer their assistance undaunted by the large number of people to be fed; even with the workers feasting happily on the fruits of their labor, Belle is not as easily appeased as she sneaks away.
108 Sounds of joy roar in the valley
"Yorokobi no gōon no tani no oto" (喜びの轟音の谷の音)
15 December 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
A session of clumsy trial and error with the train controls quickly gives way to the train driving the terrified Belle on a wild chase through the construction site until Candy counsels Belle through safely bringing the runaway train to a halt; while Annie feels guilty about living the good life while Candy is working, Eliza is none too pleased to have explained Annie and Archibald's subterfuge as she initiates her counterstrike. Annie is shocked at being ordered back to Chicago with Archibald whose immediate detection of it as Eliza's treachery does little to prepare Candy for the dangerous opportunity the Foreman gives her: Alaska or the unemployment line. The return of the exhausted but exonerated Margot ignites the ultimate deus ex machina of Belle being able to stay in Graytown and Archibald's constructive office politics on Candy's behalf; as an unexpected bonus, Candy is asked to do the honors of blasting out the final wall before being thrown a farewell party where she is given amended transfer orders complete with a week's vacation.
109 The tears of the little cowboy
"Chīsana kaubōi no namida" (小さなカウボーイの涙)
22 December 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
After the adventure in Graytown, one would think that Candy would have a nice relaxing vacation at Pony's Home prior to her return commute back to Chicago as Sisters Pony and Lane explain Candy the fruits of an exercise to illustrate future ambitions exhorted of the kids; unfortunately as is usually the case, drama proves to be an inseparable traveling companion to Candy wherever she goes. Governor Cartwright approaches Pony's Home with the news that Jimmy has taken a fancy to being a soldier that has left a lot of the chores on the farm undone in favor of leading the other orphans through games of trench warfare not unlike that being done in Europe during World War I; while Candy turns her steps to confront him, Jimmy decides to demonstrate his prowess with handling a rifle but ends up instigating a cattle stampede that ignites the epiphany within Jimmy that he has been making sport of a serious phenomenon that kills people if properly utilized. Unfortunately for Jimmy, extreme guilt is not enough to inspire any clemency from Candy who finds that Jimmy's ignorance is a far more difficult repair job than the property damage of the stampede; an obdurate »Do not toy with me!!!« slap across the chops later, Candy explains the bruised Jimmy the data he lacks about warfare's brutal aftermath along with that of all the cattle injured from the stampede.
110 The troublesome love
"Yakkai na ai" (厄介な愛)
29 December 1978 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Upon arriving back home in Chicago, Candy is overjoyed at the prospect of seeing Albert and her co-workers at Saint Joanna Hospital where she hopes to hit the ground running the next morning such as Neil driving recklessly through town prior to causing a scene when he wrecks the car. Candy's good Samaritan intercession throws Neil off guard and raises some questions about his long-standing »vendetta« with Candy who ends up the grudge of a cranky bulldog that chases her all over the place. In an attempt to resolve his conflicted feelings, Neil tries to court Candy on her job the next morning not realizing that the endeavor being repulsed is the repercussion of his childhood persecution; unfortunately for Candy, Eliza is frightened of losing her partner-in-crime and cares nothing that Candy has nothing to do with why Neil feels the way he does as she tries to compute an apparatus for wrecking Candy's micro-economy. Capitalizing upon Grandfather William's ill health and reasoning that Candy's legal status as an Adley family citizen will expire when Grandfather William does, Eliza first tries to play matchmaker for Neil before exhorting Governess Leagan's assistance to ultimately threaten the Hospital's micro-economy which will throw everybody out of work unless Dr. Leonard unjustly purges Candy from the payrolls -- an action that will obliterate Candy's micro-economy since no other hospital will employ her because she has such vindictive and bloodthirsty adversaries.
111 The memories come back
"Kioku ga modotte kuru" (記憶が戻ってくる)
5 January 1979 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
As the shock begins to subside, it becomes apparent that Dr. Leonard is not acting of his own volition as he gets right to the heart of the matter: Candy's dysfunctional relationship with the Leagan family. Albert collapsing at work from the shock of fully recouping his lost memories at long last, Candy lashing out at Neil while computing what to do next, Neil finally seeing the light as to the monsters Eliza and Governess Leagan have become . . . none of this is any preparation for things to come to a head when Dr. Martin somehow figures out the truth prior to an anxious lion lashing out at Albert. Candy's employment problems a thing of the past, Candy is shocked when Neil waylays her with the news of Terry abandoning his acting career that ultimately gives way to Albert accompanying Candy to a picnic lunch after having acquired a better-suited job; as an additional unexpected bonus, Candy also acquires an opportunity to see Terry again.
112 Their own love
"Jibun no ai" (自分の愛)
12 January 1979 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Candy's excitement at the prospect of again seeing Terry turns to disgust as she finds that isolating her in the lakeside villa is by Neil's intentional design as an attempt to »win« her love to avoid an arranged marriage. As has been demonstrated in the past, Candy repulses Neil's overture as she bellows him his childhood persecution of her in an explosive tirade that causes Neil to hold her prisoner in the villa thinking that he holds all the cards; a harrowing plunge to the lake later, Candy defeats Neil's coercion as she swims away to make her way back home when she encounters Albert en route complete with motor transportation along with a change of clothes and a compassionate ear. Albert's internal worries and Dr. Martin teasing Candy the next morning quickly gives way to an elderly couple with some disturbing observations that inspire a »not quite adding up« sensation that compels Candy to investigate the Animal Institute where the workers have no idea who Albert is; Candy continuing to compute this data as she works obfuscates the real truth: Albert being a secret agent of the Grandchester family. The ultimate zenith of this subterfuge is when Albert is shocked to find Terry in a saloon where he has been drowning away in alcohol his anguish of having broken up with Candy; several »Get a grip on yourself right now!!!« cranial jolts later, Albert demonstrates Terry the fruits of Candy's optimistic perseverance that inspires Terry to return to the theater.
113 A man leaves
"Otoko wa ha" (男は葉)
19 January 1979 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
As Candy sleeps after a particular harrowing day at work, Albert computes how to interpret the complete recovery of his memories and concludes that he must take responsibility for himself instead of continuing to rely on Candy's goodwill; in spite of a small mistake on Poope's part, Albert successfully steals away in the middle of the night with Poope after leaving behind a letter relaying his gratitude for everything she has done. Candy's feverish but fruitless search for Albert obfuscates the fact that the adversarial divergent concourse in the Leagan family over whether Candy should be forced to marry Neil or completely driven from the Chicago macro-economy like what Governess Leagan and Eliza are after has never been more prominent. A chance encounter with Patricia puts things into perspective when a letter from Alistear describes his newfound enlightenment about war along with how a fellow soldier died in his arms. As per the available data and Patricia's fears, Alistear being slain during an aerial dogfight ultimately inflames the Adley family politics of hating Candy who is mourning Alistear alongside Annie and Archibald; in an attempt to honor Alistear, Patricia boards a southbound train to her parents in Florida with her grandmother Marsha.
114 The day to meet the Uncle
"Hi ga ankuru o mitasu tame ni" (日がアンクルを満たすために)
26 January 1979 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Sitting alone in her now-empty apartment, Candy reflects upon the injustice of the circumstances as she grapples for some kind of satisfactory perspective when she comes upon an advertisement in the newspaper about how the elusive Grandfather William is interested in coming above-ground. While Candy reflects on the adventures that she has had as an Adley family citizen since her adoption along with the fact that she has never met her benefactor, Governess Leagan's searing reproof of her son's poor judgment in choosing to marry »that girl« becomes the forum for Eliza to define the contemporary social mechanics that govern the aristocrats; unfortunately for Neil, Candy seems to have sensed this dynamic when she repulses yet another overture for her hand in marriage. Bristling at Candy successfully defeating every act of subterfuge she could muster and that she has attracted Neil's attention away from her as her partner-in-crime, Eliza appeals to her family government to make Candy's marriage to Neil a direct order from Grandfather William. Candy's personal perspective of Grandfather William's behavior toward her over the years proves to be the ultimate skeleton key to accurately illuminate this as yet another of Eliza's traps on Neil's behalf; a couple of car rides and a handful of sympathetic allies later, Candy finds herself in Lakewood with her mysterious benefactor Grandfather William who she hopes will see the light of his folly.
115 The flowers bloom on Pony's Hill
"Ponī no oka ni hana ga saku" (ポニーの丘に花が咲く)
2 February 1979 {{{FirstEngAirDate}}}
Candy is thunderstruck to have it demonstrated that her benefactor »Grandfather« William Albert Adley has been hiding in plain sight before her the whole time back from when she was in anguish over Annie being adopted away from Pony's Home. Albert explains Candy his prologue of the purgatory of Albert being too young for the desperately-needed role of the Adley family heir which led to the dexterous application of the principle »Deceive your allies to fool your adversaries« while Candy recalls her white-water misadventure attempt to return to Pony's Home that landed her right into Albert's arms for the first time. It seems that Alistear, Archibald, and Anthony did not want to put all their eggs in one basket by leaving it up to the Grand-Aunt whether Candy is treated as a person or a pariah in the Adley family; as an added bonus, Albert notes how closely Candy resembles Anthony's mother as the two prosecute a father-daughter concourse that is an effective digest of the entire series. Candy's arranged marriage annulled and the »prince on the hilltop« mystery solved, Albert enthralls the kids with his Scottish attire and his bagpipes while Candy leads Archibald and Annie in a race to Pony's Home where a banquet has been prepared that ultimately demonstrates the lesson that the best way to honor the loved ones that have died or are otherwise unavailable is by leading a productive and ethical life.
