Amy, Ricky, come on, get a move on. Holiday Club.
You've got face painting today, ain't you?
I was thinking...
..of taking Auntie Ronnie's card to the grave today, is that OK?
Go and get your brother ready. We don't want to be late, do we?
How long's this Preston planning on staying?
I had to wait 20 minutes to get in the bathroom.
He's our guest. Where's your manners?
-She fancies him.
-Nah, she's got better taste.
-Want him for yourself, do you?
I can't put up with Jay snoring much longer. We need separate rooms.
-Everyone got enough breakfast?
Well, we were just wondering...
How long's this Preston planning on staying?
Don't know what Mum'd think. She's always telling me, "This ain't a hotel."
No need to mention him to your mum. He's just staying a couple of days.
Yeah? What's it worth?
-Do you want some tea, Preston?
See you, Ben.
So, I'm meeting my mates Alexandra and Madison later.
We could show you round Walford, if you like.
Preston's coming taking Dennis to Holiday Club with me.
-I don't need taking.
-Oh, you know. Just saying.
If you want to hang out with someone your own age.
A few days... Rest of our lives.
-I need lunch money.
-I thought it was in with the price.
Snacks, then. Mum would never let me go into the world skint.
Go and put your shoes on.
I've left him untold messages. He still ain't getting back to me.
I want him to take responsibility.
Not just scuttle off without a word.
Lee will get in touch when he's ready.
Did you...? Did you get any kip?
Thank you for letting me stay the last couple of nights. Um...
-Just don't want to be in the flat on my own.
-Don't be silly.
It's what family's for.
Take the day off. Put your feet up.
We'll let you know if we hear anything, all right?
-How's she doing?
-Don't worry about that.
Just what's the damage on these leaks being fixed?
Bloke said he can do the roof, but we'll need builders for the rest.
Mother, give me your bins.
He's having a bubble, ain't he?
I'll sort it out myself.
Mick... The French night went down a storm,
and me and Johnny, we're on to the Polish thing,
-aren't we, Johnny?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-We're on to it.
I'm going to do a Polish playlist.
And I'll sort out the menus.
And... Oh, the Polish supermarket on Turpin Road.
-They might be able to help.
-I'll go down there later.
What's Lee playing at, Dad?
Johnny, the boy needs to sort his nut out.
And he will. Don't worry.
-Where's Matthew, then?
-Next door with the kids.
I'll try to sort out some old toys for him, you know, that my Nick had.
That's if I get through with all that washing.
I want to apologise.
Apologise? What for?
Well, you know, pushing you to sort out Ronnie's things.
I shouldn't have done it.
You've got to do it in your own time. It was wrong of me.
-I'll go and get the kids ready.
"My bounty is as endless as the sea.
"My love as deep..."
Day and night. It never stops. It's not even what I'd call music.
Yeah, well, I am a council employee
and I would like this recorded as an official complaint.
Thanks, yeah. Oh, and while we're at it,
when exactly are you emptying the bins?
W... PHONE HUNG UP
They'd better do something about those students at number 18 this time,
before I throw a brick through the window.
SINGING ON TABLET
What are you watching?
-Bex, she wrote this song and now it's gone viral.
In a good way, Mum.
# Every single time
# Cos all I got this Christmas... #
At least someone knows what a tune is.
-Kushy needs you on the stall today.
I thought you said I could have the week off after my mocks.
To do what?
Lounge around on the sofa like those wastrel students?
Us Kazemis live in the real world.
-Yeah, but, Mum!
But nothing. Your brother needs you. Shift yourself.
No, you should see how many hits she's had.
Your daughter is talented.
She takes after me, don't she?
Chelle! You heard this?
-Bex's song... Breaking the internet.
-You'll have to play it for me sometime.
-I'll DM you the link.
Oh, this is Preston. One of Mark's friends.
Oh, right. Hello, mate. I'm Martin, Chelle's brother.
-This is my wife, Stacey.
These are my daughters - Lily and Bex.
She'll probably heading over to your side of the pond any day now,
looking for fame and fortune.
I'd love to hear your song sometime.
I've got a shift over at Kathy's. I'll be finished about lunchtime.
You could pop in?
-About the Valentine's card.
Oh, no, no, it's fine. I'm over it. Come on, Dennis.
-Yeah, she's still got the hump with me, hasn't she?
Why don't you get Luke to watch the stall and go and apologise properly?
We should've changed suppliers months ago.
I mean, incrementally, all the savings you've made, I mean...
-they add up.
-Mm. It's all in the detail.
Ah. Mum's doing good in the caff.
Valentine's Night at the restaurant, that turned a tidy profit.
And, Tina, she can hardly keep up with these lunchtime deliveries.
Good. You've got time to go for this health check, then.
It's just routine. Like an MOT.
-Why don't you give them a call?
Look, Ian, it is important that we look after our health.
We are heading towards our fifties. It's like... It's like...
There's nothing wrong with me, OK?
I've got to go to the chippy. I'll pop back in a little while
and I'll take that round to Dot's, OK?
In the meantime, if you feel like making me any more savings,
-be my guest.
DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES
# Every single time... #
Who's Bex think she is? Alessia Cara?
-Yeah, I know. Proper tragic, ain't it?
-It is a joke!
What's he doing here?
I was going to ask you the same thing.
I gave him the rest of the week off.
I caught him pining over some song Bex has posted online.
He's been watching it all morning. He'll be useless to me now.
We need to keep him busy, though. He's still not over it.
-You couldn't have a word, could you?
It's bloke stuff. He'll listen to you.
I'm not here on vacation.
-Look at this place.
-I came here to be with you.
-Which is wonderful.
-It's like I said.
I'm still getting my head around you turning up.
-I thought you'd be happy.
Oh, Preston! This isn't even my house.
We can get a house.
You have to understand.
I haven't got back on my feet yet...
after what happened in Florida.
-We broke some stupid rule.
-No, I broke the law.
It cost me my job, my family. I could have been prosecuted.
But you weren't.
I've walked away from school, my family, to make this happen.
Everything's going to be different here.
How can I prove it to you?
Do the washing-up.
Done. Anything else?
Why don't I cook dinner tonight?
-Yeah! Something from back home.
Flo-ribbean. Just let me help.
Everything's going to be OK.
Anyone for bagels?!
-Martin! You scared the living daylights out of me.
Just thought it was about time me and you had a proper catch-up.
I'll...leave you guys to it.
-Where are you going?
-Just going to look around.
I got your message. What was it? Did you need a deposit?
Maybe we should do this down the office.
No, no, just tell me how much.
You don't think you might've forgotten something on the order?
-No. Why? Is there a problem?
-What's this about?
It's my job, in times of grief,
to make sure that the client knows exactly what it is they're ordering.
Billy, I wrote it all down, all right?
All you've got to do is follow the instructions.
Roxy made a few mistakes in her life, Jack. Who hasn't?
But you can't just leave her cold in the ground
with nothing to mark the spot, like...as if she never existed.
-She killed my wife.
-Misadventure, the coroner said.
Yeah, well, I know what really happened.
Yeah? Well, I ain't doing it.
-You ain't got no choice.
Roxy made hers - choosing that muck over her own daughter.
-What goes on that headstone is mine.
-Oi, oi, oi!
What do you think you're doing? Just get off him.
You ready to talk?
He just said he doesn't love me any more.
You've got licence to eat the whole thing.
Make yourself pig-sick.
Then... We're done with the wallowing.
You can't let some waste of space bloke,
even if he is my brother, bring you down like this.
You're stronger than that.
I know you are.
Johnny, I'm not strong.
Wow, this... This is how people get picked up, ain't it?
-SINGING ON PHONE
-If you've still got feelings...
But if you... But if you do, then...
it doesn't matter what your homey, Keegan, says, does it?
Wait, my what?!
How do you know that Bex hasn't still got feelings for you?
Cos we're not talking.
Man up! Break the ice. One of you has to.
And then that way, you will know one way or the other, won't you?
I told you. Stuff this important has to be done face-to-face.
What's Travis doing here?
It was a stupid idea.
And I should've known that you'd be raw, not being with Tim.
Go on, have your bagel.
-See? I told you.
There is nothing better than a proper East End salt beef bagel.
Look, Chelle, I'm sorry...
you know, for not being there sooner.
-Things must've been difficult.
-Mm. You don't know the half of it.
Do you think it's got anything to do with the age difference?
-You and Tim.
I mean, he always did seem like an "older" old guy.
If he always had the upper hand...
Which is why I reckon is why me and Sonia broke up.
I was always on the back foot. Not very good in relationships.
And you need to be equal.
-That how you and Stacey are?
I mean, it's not always easy, you know, with money and kids, but...
we're heading in the same direction, you know, want the same things.
fancy the pants off her.
I can really see our future together, you know?
Clear as day.
I just come over to see how you are,
you're having an argument in the street.
-What's Billy done?
-I ain't putting Roxy's name on the headstone.
What are you talking about? You can't expect him to bury his cousin in an unmarked grave.
I ain't honouring her memory, not after what she did.
He's not asking you to put it in gold lettering, is he?
Look, I knew Roxy was to blame for this, all right? I knew it.
If I'd acted on my instincts from the off,
then maybe none of this would've happened.
Maybe Ronnie would still be here.
You heard what the coroner said, all right? It was an accident.
Max, Ronnie was my soul mate, all right?
It took me this long to find it out.
And now she's gone...
..I just don't know what to do.
Listen, I still go and visit Bradley's grave sometimes.
Have a chat with him.
Don't know if it helps.
Jack, honestly, mate, if things get on top,
just go out, have a couple of jars, just let off some steam.
JACK PUFFS OUT
I'm there for you.
It's taken me 20 minutes to get that boy off.
Bouncing off the walls, he was.
Oh, I was telling him all about the loaves and the fishes
and he wants me to read his Peppa Piggies.
Talking about fish...
Are you hungry, Dave? Are you?
Yes, well, I've got some nice salmon for you.
Some of the good stuff, not them cheap cuts from the Minute Mart.
IAN: Dot! Are you in there?
It's on the latch.
All right, Dot?
Any chance of a cheeky little service wash,
get some of these stains out for us?
Put it with the rest.
Oh, blimey! Are you going into competition with Mr Papadopoulos?
-No, it's Kim's.
Her Pearl, she's covered everything with felt tip.
-What, all that's Kim's?
-No, no, no. One of them's Michelle's.
She's ever so particular about her shirts.
I blame America. They're ever so keen on starch.
All right, then.
Same payment as last time?
I'll get the plates. Here we go.
HE SPEAKS POLISH
-You're going to have to speak English.
-Oh, I assumed.
It's the hair.
Do you mind? I'm a natural blonde.
-How do you say "pulling your leg" in Polish?
HE SPEAKS POLISH
I'm glad you said it.
I'm Shirley Carter.
Me and my family, we run the Queen Vic pub
on the corner of Albert Square.
We're doing a Polish theme night next week
and I'm looking for some ideas for a menu.
Is your grub any good?
If you've got a strong stomach.
I'm Konrad, the owner.
-Awesome track by the way.
-Oh, thank you.
-Oh! Come over. You all right?
Preston, this is my friend from school - Travis.
This is Preston, visiting all the way from Florida.
Ah, the swing state.
Don't blame me. I'm too young to vote.
-You don't have to go.
-No, I mean it. Your track is sweet.
I'm sure if you tried, you could talk him round.
Dot, wouldn't you rather just sit down and relax now?
You know the saying - the devil finds work for idle hands.
Yeah, but you've spent your entire life
surrounded by other people's dirty washing.
Ah, but you can't put a price on a well-ironed shirt.
You've finished your bun.
Here, have a cherry Bakewell.
No. No, Dot, I-I shouldn't.
I'm trying to cut down on the cakes.
You're skin and bone.
Pff... I don't think Jane would say that, but...
She's trying to get me to go for a health check.
Oh, there's no harm in going for a check-up.
Why? Do you think there's something wrong with me?
No, no! I just meant, don't let pride stand in the way.
I mean, look at me.
I spent months putting off going to see about my eye,
and then I had my injections.
-Yeah, and you're getting better.
-Well, they ain't getting any worse.
It's just my...
-my dad wasn't much older than me when he died.
I always think of you as a boy.
Yeah, and I hate to admit it, Dot, but I'm getting older.
Oh, don't tell me.
But you know what they say - with age comes wisdom.
So put it to good use.
I mean, little Louie, he needs a grandfather, doesn't he?
Oh, that's Jane. I'd better be getting back.
Well, take a tart with you. You can have it later.
All right. I'll see you tomorrow for the washing.
I'll get some Eccles cakes...
as a reward for going to see the doctor.
I will see you tomorrow, Dot.
Oh, no. He's off again.
Matthew's running circles round Dot.
Ricky's really excited about his face painting.
I mean, hopefully he don't choose a ladybird again.
Remember what happened the last time?
The bathroom went crimson.
I mean, you freaked out. You thought one of the kids had had an accident.
"Is as boundless as the sea
"My love as deep
"The more I give to thee."
Do you remember when I tried to impress you?
Yeah! You belted me when you found out it was off a tea towel.
I miss you, Ron.
I've got a few Polish pop songs in here. Like, traditional stuff.
Now Panit's forgiven us,
he's going to get us some Polish beer at cost, so...
Well, Konrad's going to sort out the menus and bring the food over.
And he said he's going to get some of his customers to come as well.
-It's his name.
-I know, all right!
-You seem to be getting quite a bit out of Konrad.
I'm done with older men, if that's what you're thinking.
I'm going to take a leaf out of Michelle's book.
I heard about your stint with the young student the other night.
-Life in the old dog yet, eh?
I thought I gave you the day off.
Yeah, yeah, you did, but I'd rather work, if that's OK.
I'm going to go see the flat later, an' all.
You're welcome here as long as you like, you know that.
-I need to.
Do you want me to come with you?
No, you're all right. I've got to face this on my own, ain't I?
She's just putting on a brave face.
Lee will call when he's ready.
-And what if I've pushed him too far? What if he's...?
What if he's done something stupid?
He's been all over the gaff, you know. He's...
I found this card, this Samaritans card, after the robbery.
-He's been having these thoughts.
-What kind of thoughts?
Linda doesn't know about it, all right?
You don't pack a bag if you're going to go top yourself.
How about me and you take Lady Di for a walk later, eh?
Get some fresh air.
I saw your song online.
It was really good.
Guy don't know what he's missing.
I understand how mad you must be.
The thing is, Bex...
Bieber's always a crowd-pleaser...
Didn't know you had company.
You were saying?
Oh! Lucky I heard you say the password this morning.
They let me pick them up.
Go on, up you go. Lily, ten minutes, all right,
and then we've got to pick Arthur up.
So sorry. I lost track of time.
Just when you think you're on top of everything.
A massive 40ft wave
comes and crashes down on you out of nowhere.
Look, I was totally out of order earlier with Billy.
He's upset because I don't want to put Roxy's name on the headstone.
You know she had coke in her system.
It was... It was still an accident.
Yeah, but if Roxy hadn't have been so off her head,
maybe Ronnie would have stood a chance.
Who are you trying to punish by not putting her name on the headstone?
Roxy ain't going to notice.
You're just punishing the people that she's left behind,
like Billy and Amy.
Well, the less she knows about her, the better.
That's her mum! Course she's going to think about her.
-Yeah, well, not if I can help it.
Suppose I could've done the same with Lily.
Ryan's hardly been a...a model father.
But he's still her dad.
Even though he's not around, I ain't going to bad mouth him,
because I love her.
I know it's hard,
but you have to try and be the bigger person.
Amy's just a little girl. She's...
She's lost her mum. Ain't that enough?
Maybe being angry with Roxy is distracting you
from what you really need to do.
-You know, you can't move on until...
-Maybe I don't want to move on.
If you'd have said to me seven years ago
that I would...I would find someone else and be happy...
I'd have laughed.
I'd have probably screamed in your face!
Look. Here I am.
I've been thinking.
You know, you're right about that health check.
-There's absolutely no point in you going.
-I made an appointment.
We all pay our taxes,
and if you don't need the services on offer,
then why not leave them for people that...?
Dot got in my ear, and if it keeps you two off my back...
-After all I've paid out in taxes over the years,
if anyone's entitled to a free health check, it's me.
They keep me on my toes.
Any time you want them looking after, you only have to ask.
Well, I might take you up on that,
so I can make a start, you know, going through Ronnie's things.
Dad, did you take Mummy's card?
Not yet, darling, but I promise you I will.
Come on, let's go.
Off you go.
-See you later.
-Go on, then.
Have you finished that there salmon?
Otherwise it's going to go off.
Oh, no. You ain't got down there, have you?
Where are you? Where are you?
-Is dinner ready yet?
-No, not yet.
Go upstairs, wash your hands.
I had to borrow some money from your purse earlier.
I thought you were cooking for everyone!
I wanted to do something special for us.
Help me clean this place up. They'll be home soon.
Oh, tell them to eat out. Tell them we need some space.
Why don't you just tell them who I really am?
I can't do anything right. I don't think you even want me here.
Can you help me put this on?
Where do you get it?
Upstairs. It's Mummy's.
Will it fit?
I don't know. Do you want to have a look?
-Go on, then.
-Mummy said Auntie Ronnie stole it.
Can I keep it?
Course you can, darling.
Looks beautiful on you.
KNOCK ON DOOR
-Hello, you! You ready for Holiday Club?
Wow! Look at that! Is it new?
Come on, then. Let's take that off so you don't lose it.
Go on, then. Go and get your stuff.
I really appreciate you taking them. I'll pick them up later, yeah?
-Are you sure you're going to remember?
I can drop Matthew to Dot's, if you want, on the way with this lot.
No, no, no, I'll do it, I'll do it.
Listen, thanks. Really appreciate your help.
Oh, don't be silly. It's fine, honestly.
Ricky! Come on, Stacey's here.
Here you go, love.
-Oh, you look nice.
Come on, you're going to be late.
Are you just going to stand there?
You look gorgeous.
I've been going over
what they're going to be asking at this interview.
What if they ask me why I l...?
You'll be fine. You're an amazing teacher, that's all they'll see.
You're really set on staying in London, aren't you?
-Course I am.
-It's growing on me, too.
I've got to go.
Did you have to book it now?
Look, we can go and grab a coffee.
It's better to get there early than late, isn't it?
-What, to sit and stare at a wall?
You know what waiting times are like.
Oh, good luck with your interview.
-You'll nail it.
-I hope so.
-You're at the hospital today, aren't you?
Much, much later. Someone's eager.
-Well, good luck to you, too.
-Right, you ready?
-I reckon we should set up outside a Tube station today.
Well, I was watching this video last night,
and this guitarist, he was busking outside different Tube stations
every day for about a week.
-Loads of people were stopping and listening.
-Yeah, sounds good.
Yeah, he's had loads of views on his SoundCloud, too.
So, have you done your art homework yet?
-No, but I started on a new track.
Yeah, done about eight bars.
-Play it for me, then.
-When we get there!
She moved on quick.
We've run out of vodka. Can you, uh,
grab a couple of bottles, please?
Um... Have you heard from Lee yet?
Thought we might've done by now.
Well, he will ring at some point. He has to.
Do you think I should ring Linda? Maybe he's rung Linda.
What if he hasn't? You don't want to upset her.
Why's he turned his back on everyone?
We're his family.
Maybe he just needs some space.
To think things through.
Don't we all?
I'll grab the vodka. You deal with the glasses, please.
Come on out, Dave.
I've got a nice bowl of tuna for you.
It's all mashed up, so you won't have to chew.
You've been in there all night.
It ain't right for a cat to be interfering with the plumbing.
I had this once with my Nick.
Locked himself in a cupboard.
I sat there for ages, trying to coax him out.
In the end, his father, my Charlie,
he had to bribe him out with a toy gun.
I often wonder if...
that's what started all the problems.
If you don't come out, I'll confiscate your toy mouse.
SHE TUTS SOFTLY
I'm doing a dance mashup
so the kids have got something decent to boogie to
when they do the musical chairs.
None of this "round and round the garden" rubbish.
-Yeah, I've heard about your parties.
Yeah. Are you getting another bouncy castle again, are you?
No, Kath, my love. That's so last year.
They chucked out the students at number 18 this morning.
Woke Patrick up at 7.30, throwing their boxes out in the front.
Oh! He was so vexed!
-I'll see you later, yeah?
-Yeah, see you.
Are we going to go shops or just sit here and stare at our phones all day?
Louise, can I talk to you for a minute?
We're not going anywhere. Might as well spit it out.
Is something going on with Bex and Travis?
-Well, I saw them this morning.
-You're winding me up.
Thought she was supposed to be your mate.
-She's taking you for a mug.
-Right under your nose.
Kim was just saying
that the students have been chucked out of number 18.
You want to see if you can get a viewing.
It's going to be expensive, though, innit?
Yeah, but we can afford it.
Yeah, it's convincing them we can, that's the hard bit.
Well, look, if there's any hassle with references and that,
I can always be your guarantor,
and I can help out a bit with the deposit, if you like.
-That's really nice, Mum, but we don't need a leg-up.
It's not a leg-up. It's a loan.
You can pay me back 50 quid a month.
All right. Well, thanks for calling. I appreciate it.
Who was that?
-Sorry, I weren't listening or nothing.
-No, it's all right.
Look, if it was Lee, you'd be the first person I'd tell.
I can't believe he ain't rung you yet.
He ain't text me. It's going straight to voicemail now.
He's probably switched it off.
-Have you left a message?
-Maybe you should leave a message.
-Well, I've tried.
Every time I try and talk to him...
I just want to make sure he's all right.
You don't have to deal with this on your own.
You know that, don't you?
-Well, how'd it go?
-OK, I think.
Not cracking the champagne open just yet. I'm taking nothing for granted.
It's OK if I do, though?
You are such an idiot!
-Still worth celebrating, though?
They were really nice people.
Fingers crossed for now, though, eh?
All the things we said in America about having a future...
It'll happen, I know it.
And you're practising the steps a little more regularly now?
Just two or three at a time, but I am doing it.
With your support?
Yeah, most of the time. Um...
I try and step back once she's up and she's confident.
And the improvement in your hand function is fantastic.
-She's been so determined.
-You must be very proud.
There's no getting away from how much you have surpassed expectations.
Moving forward, we're now at the stage
where we'll be withdrawing the physiotherapy side of the treatment.
Don't worry, we're not throwing you out into the wilderness.
You've got your exercise programme at home, obviously,
and there's ongoing treatment detailed in here.
Alternative physio providers if you require it.
That we'll have to pay for, you mean?
Please...take encouragement from the fact
that we've reached this stage, both of you.
And don't forget we'll see you for a review in six months' time,
just to make sure everything's still going well.
You're making progress, Jane.
-I won't be now, though, will I?
-There's no reason why not.
She needs that physio. You can't just stop it.
It's OK, love. We knew it was coming. Just...
Just not now, that's all.
My hands are a little tied, I'm afraid.
But I'm here to help arrange the next steps,
so please don't feel unsupported.
How can we not feel unsupported when you just abandon her like this?
Just leave it, love.
-I'm here to pay the deposit for the headstone.
Listen, Jack, um...
What I said about the headstone and Roxy, I...
I didn't mean to interfere, mate.
We all say things we don't mean.
Especially when we lost someone close.
And you're right.
We should add "beloved mother and sister"
under Roxy's name on the headstone, next to Ron's, what do you think?
Yeah, I think that sounds good.
It's what Ron would've wanted.
Thought I could trust her.
Want to know something?
Me and her reckon Bex has been trying to get with Travis for ages.
Yeah. Seen the way she's been looking at him?
So why didn't you say anything?
-We were going to mention it today.
-Not going to lie.
-You need to cut her dead.
-What, just like that?
You don't go after your mate's man.
-Well, would you do it?
-There you go, then.
She needs telling.
I'm deleting her from the group chat so she knows something's wrong.
'Please leave your message after the tone.'
Do me a favour.
Just call someone.
Just to let us know you're OK, yeah?
Oh! Here you are.
Check this out.
-Do you like it?
It's just that Pearl's been asking after my necklace,
so now she can say she's got one like her Auntie D.
-Do you think party poppers are dangerous?
For toddlers? Yeah.
I'll just give them to the adults, then.
You know, give the party a bit of an atmosphere.
What do you think? Yeah?
Now, come on.
Come on, Dave.
Where are you? Dave?
Dave, come on.
I've lost my head.
What have they done that for?
-Only cos I've made so much progress.
-So it's good news?
-She still needs it, though. It's ridiculous.
-Oh, Ian, please.
You know, it would've been great to carry on...
till I can actually walk again.
Yeah, and we WILL carry on. JANE SIGHS
The doctor says it's a positive thing that I've come this far,
and I know enough exercises to carry things on here, don't I?
Yeah, and what else did the doctor say, right?
-You've made a massive improvement.
-And we need to keep the momentum going.
-I can do that myself.
Well, they have given you some numbers of some private clinics.
They're stupidly expensive, though.
And you have just bought this wheelchair.
Look, I don't care, all right? I'll give them a ring.
HE SNIFFS DEEPLY
BANGING ON DOOR
Didn't think you were the type.
Stop pretending you don't know what I mean.
-You knew I liked him.
-What are you on about?
We've been busking together. It's just music.
Alex and Mads have said something, haven't they?
They're my mates and they've got my back, that's all.
No, they haven't. They are stirring things because they hate me.
And... And, anyway, why would I move in on Travis
when I still like Shaki?
Now, we'll have a little music, shall we?
# How much is that doggy...? #
I don't think we want that!
MUSIC BLARES Oh!
MUSIC STOPS Oh!
PHONE RINGS Oh, dear!
Oh. Oh, it's you, Ian.
Yes, I've done them, I've done them.
Yeah, you can come now, if you want.
All right, then.
See you in a minute. Bye.
Oh, come on, Dave.
-Hey! Come back to bed.
-I've missed a call from the agency.
-Call them back.
-INDISTINCT VOICE ON PHONE
Hi, yeah, I've got a missed call from you. It's Michelle.
Yeah, yeah, that's right.
OK, OK, I see.
Look, do you mind if I ask why?
If Shaki saw us and thought we were flirting, then he's an idiot.
And I can't believe you'd think that of me.
I didn't know what to think.
Travis keeps going on about you, anyway.
Yeah, he just wants the catfish thing to blow over.
Oh, it has, though.
Maybe you should make a move, then.
Oh, you reckon?
About the card, too.
Forget about it.
It's done now.
Come here! Oh! Love you!
-Now, be careful, Ian.
-He's a very nervous thing.
You see, it comes of being brought up on the streets.
-Can you see him?
-No, not down there.
-Are you sure?
Well, have a look inside. You might have missed him.
Give it a twizzle.
All right, well, I hope he's not in here.
-Right, there's nothing.
Oh, dear, I hate these new-fangled things, all them knobs.
Yeah, well, it's called technology, Dot.
Yes, well, can technology get a beetroot stain out of a silk blouse?
Which reminds me... How did Jane get on at the physiotherapist?
I'm really, really sorry, but I think your Dave has done a runner.
Must've been weeks since they cleaned it in there.
It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
You've got to expect some mess with a bunch of students, ain't you?
They need to get an odd-job man in to fix a few things.
Well, it's nothing we can't handle, eh?
No, it's not your responsibility. The landlord should sort it.
It's decent. I like it.
-Oh, it's a dump, Ben.
-You ain't going to be living here, Mum.
-No, but I'm putting up the money to help, ain't I?
-Yeah, and so I'm entitled to my opinion.
-All right, fine.
It'll look nice once it's cleaned up.
Oh... Maybe you should look for another place.
Well, there ain't another place.
Not round here, anyway.
-Oh, I don't know.
-Oh, come on, Mum. It's fine.
It's better than fine. Look, we've got space.
-Yeah, no queueing for the bog.
When can we move in?
-There you go, Dot. Look at that. Good as new.
-Oh, thank you.
And I put an extra sugar in it for you.
Sugar? I never touch it. It's poison.
That poor little Dave.
He'll have been eaten by foxes by now.
Well, look, he survived this long.
It's terribly cold out there.
He could get a chill on his chest.
I'm partial to that.
Cats are fickle creatures, aren't they? He's...
He's probably found someone else's bed to sleep in.
I should never have taken him in the first place.
I mean, I've got enough on my plate without another mouth to feed.
Maybe it's for the best, then.
It ain't healthy for a human to get attached to an animal.
I mean, look at Ethel with her little Willy.
She was heartbroken when she lost him.
And then there's the vet's bills. And the fleas.
No, I think perhaps you're right, Ian.
It's a blessing in disguise.
-Come on in.
Look what we found outside.
Oh! Oh, you naughty boy.
He was eating chicken out of Kim's bin.
Well, I might've known she'd have a hand in it.
Now, you, you can go straight to your basket
and you can think long and hard about your behaviour.
-Do you hear me?
-Give him here, Dot.
-I'll take him to the kitchen for you.
-Come on, you.
How are you getting on with...?
-Yeah, it's all done.
I was just thinking, Marie at the caff, she's after a cat.
-Do you want me to have a word with her?
-Oh, there's no need, no.
I mean, I know he's a pest, but... Oh, I wouldn't burden her with him.
-Dave's lucky to have you, Dot.
-We all are.
-Come on, we'd better go.
-Come on, you two.
-I'm taking my washing, Dot. See you later.
You can apply for another job.
-Like it's that simple.
-Yeah, you're a good teacher.
I'm not a good teacher. Stop telling me I'm a good teacher.
-But there's loads of other jobs.
-Well, like what?
-Pulling pints in the pub?
-You'll get something.
You're not listening.
They checked my references. They know everything.
You don't see it, do you? This is my career and it's over.
But I'm here for you. SHE SIGHS
We can fix this, together, can't we?
-I love you, remember.
-You think you love me.
But you don't really.
OK, don't patronise me.
You know how my family feel about us.
I've risked everything to come be here with you.
Yeah, well, we've both taken risks. Mine just blew up in my face.
There's still time for you to turn it around,
find someone your own age.
-I don't want someone my own age. I want you.
-But you're a child!
Things will change once I get fixed up properly.
I had to lend you money for your dinner yesterday.
You need to learn to stand on your own two feet,
think about your future, not mine.
-But you are my future.
No, no, I'm not.
Well, you can't just chuck me away when it doesn't suit you any more.
I need to sort you out a flight.
You have to go home, Preston.
-What are you going to do about Shaks, then?
I just feel like too much has gone on.
So... What are you going to say to Travis?
I reckon I should just wait until he says something.
Do you think he will?
He might, if I drop a hint in some way.
All right! Well, just don't make it obvious.
Don't take this the wrong way,
but I think you need to get over Shaks.
It's been too long. You need to move on.
What do you think about Preston?
-There you go, darling. Enjoy.
Hello, L. Yeah, you all right, babe?
Yeah, no, everything's sweet.
Whit, can you get this phone, please, babe?
-PHONE CONTINUES TO RING
-Yeah, no, what it is...
Look, I'll call you later. I'll call you back, all right? Just...
I need to see you.
