It's all right, baby. Nearly done.

0:00:290:00:31

Ow!

0:00:390:00:41

Why don't you pick on some other mug?

0:00:410:00:44

60 quid?! Are you joking?

0:00:440:00:46

That's not what they said when I booked. I'll be having words.

0:00:460:00:50

Come on, Ollie.

0:00:500:00:52

It woke me up at five.

0:00:560:00:58

Good job an' all, now there's two more leaks.

0:00:580:01:01

I thought the ceiling was going to cave in.

0:01:010:01:02

There's still time. Forecast reckons there's more on the way.

0:01:020:01:06

Don't. That'd be just our luck if they're right for once.

0:01:060:01:08

Right, get rid of this lot, lively.

0:01:080:01:10

What? Dad, I'm sure you've done a good job up there but...

0:01:100:01:13

Your mother's downstairs.

0:01:130:01:14

-Why?

-I don't know, do I? I don't know.

0:01:140:01:17

Leave off. Right, I-I-I-I... I'll just keep her out of here...

0:01:170:01:22

L? You're back.

0:01:220:01:24

-Hello.

-I missed you.

0:01:250:01:28

-Yeah, I missed you.

-Nothing's happened, has it?

0:01:280:01:31

No, no. Not my end anyway. I had a phone call, never mind who.

0:01:310:01:36

They were worried you're finding it hard without Shirley and Trace.

0:01:360:01:39

Look, I'm not sure what I can do. I have to be back at Mum's for the evening rush but...

0:01:390:01:42

Coffee first, all right? I reckon it's the only thing holding me together.

0:01:420:01:45

Babe, you look knackered. Why don't you get yourself in there and get your trotters up?

0:01:450:01:48

I'll whack the kettle on, and I'll get some toys for the boy.

0:01:480:01:51

No, babe...

0:01:510:01:52

And by "sorted", you mean what? That you've phoned a roofer?

0:02:120:02:15

No, no. What it is, all it needs is a hammer, bit of felt.

0:02:150:02:18

Boom, boom, boom, just...

0:02:180:02:19

Have you seen the weather?! And you can barely hang a picture straight!

0:02:190:02:22

-It's not a big job, Mum.

-A monkey could do that.

0:02:220:02:24

-Why's the door downstairs still not fixed?

-I don't want to pay a geezer an arm and a leg...

0:02:240:02:27

-Johnny, go look after your brother.

-Mick! There's electrics. You bodge it, and water gets in...

0:02:270:02:31

Haven't I got enough on my plate without you getting electrocuted?

0:02:310:02:34

Or worse! I mean, seriously.

0:02:340:02:36

Shirley's just saved us ten grand and you're worried about shelling out a few hundred quid?

0:02:360:02:40

You're right, I know, I'm a melt. You know, I'll have a ring round.

0:02:400:02:42

Whit, couldn't put the kettle on could you, babe, please?

0:02:420:02:45

Hang on. Why are you here anyway?

0:02:450:02:47

You two ain't had a row?

0:02:470:02:49

Where's Lee? Is he at the flat?

0:02:490:02:51

L, you wading in ain't going to help, is it?

0:02:510:02:52

If you think I'm going back to Mum's with them two not talking...

0:02:520:02:55

The truth is Linda, we didn't want to tell you, all right?

0:02:550:02:58

You've had a lot to deal with and there's nothing you could have done.

0:02:580:03:01

Yeah, they've had to give up the flat.

0:03:010:03:03

Jack, he put the rent up. I know it's a liberty.

0:03:030:03:06

So Lee's home?! That's great.

0:03:060:03:07

Oh, it's not great but...

0:03:070:03:09

Lee? Where is he? He can't have gone to work already.

0:03:090:03:12

-Lee!

-L. L. He's not here.

0:03:120:03:15

He's gone.

0:03:150:03:16

Stop making excuses.

0:03:210:03:23

It's wet. I could slip.

0:03:230:03:24

Just as well you got yourself a pair of canoes there, isn't it?

0:03:240:03:28

Oh, yeah, she's got a migraine.

0:03:290:03:32

No, hopefully she'll be back tomorrow.

0:03:320:03:35

Yeah. All right. Yeah, I'll tell her. All right. Thanks.

0:03:350:03:39

Why didn't you just tell the truth?

0:03:390:03:41

Because it ain't happening, Stace.

0:03:410:03:43

It's the law, end of.

0:03:430:03:44

If she leaves school before the end of June, I'm going to get done.

0:03:440:03:47

-Well...

-None of this hippy dippy stuff.

0:03:470:03:48

That's how we got here in the first place. She's going back tomorrow if I have to drag her.

0:03:480:03:52

Shaki, I want you home straight away. No hanging about.

0:03:520:03:55

I hope you're pleased with yourself.

0:03:550:03:57

-Ignore him.

-Mum, remember.

0:03:570:03:59

And you can clear them boxes. They're blocking the path.

0:04:000:04:05

Now.

0:04:050:04:06

Unless you want a fine.

0:04:060:04:07

Dad, nice deep breaths, yeah?

0:04:150:04:17

In through the nose, out through the mouth.

0:04:170:04:19

-It's these shoes, they need breaking in.

-Sure.

0:04:190:04:22

You finished already?

0:04:220:04:24

We've literally just started.

0:04:240:04:26

Right, anyway. You have to walk before you can run.

0:04:260:04:29

So, nice and brisk. Keep your arms pumping.

0:04:290:04:31

Go, go, go!

0:04:330:04:35

It's your lucky day.

0:04:350:04:37

Since I ain't got to go to work, you can take me out for lunch.

0:04:370:04:40

I'm really sorry. I said I'd do extra shifts at the restaurant.

0:04:400:04:43

Oi! Those arms!

0:04:430:04:45

-So I'll see you later, yeah?

-Yeah.

0:04:450:04:47

Hiya. I got your message about Louie. Day off, eh?

0:04:490:04:52

Bit last minute, weren't it?

0:04:520:04:54

Well, everybody else is at some team bonding session.

0:04:540:04:57

I only found out about it last night. There was me thinking I was part of the team.

0:04:570:05:01

Well, that is my idea of hell, playing stupid games in a muddy field.

0:05:010:05:05

Well, at least you get to spend the day with your boys.

0:05:050:05:07

Steven's got work but...me and you will have some fun, won't we?

0:05:070:05:11

Why don't you go and help your dad out?

0:05:120:05:14

While Jack's in Paris, visiting Penny with Matthew.

0:05:140:05:17

He's making a right meal out of looking after the other two.

0:05:170:05:20

Did he not say?

0:05:200:05:22

No.

0:05:230:05:24

I don't want you to get all wound up, OK?

0:05:250:05:28

He's happy, and he's got a cushty little job by the sound of it...

0:05:280:05:31

He should be here, right, where we can keep an eye on him.

0:05:310:05:34

Well, he's a grown man, ain't he, so...

0:05:340:05:35

With a history of depression. I mean, what were you thinking?!

0:05:350:05:38

Are you seriously telling me he just woke up one morning,

0:05:380:05:41

and decided to leave?

0:05:410:05:42

I know you're hiding something.

0:05:440:05:45

On my life, L - Beanbag rung,

0:05:450:05:46

and offered him a job on a security firm...

0:05:460:05:49

Are you going to lie to me and all?

0:05:490:05:51

Why didn't you go with him? You're his wife.

0:05:510:05:53

We had a few problems....

0:05:530:05:55

You cheated on him? Is that it?!

0:05:550:05:57

-What? No!

-Linda, don't...

0:05:570:05:58

Well, it wouldn't be the first time.

0:05:580:06:00

It weren't down to her.

0:06:000:06:01

Well, something's going on. Because I know my boy, he wouldn't just take off.

0:06:010:06:04

You think...? You've got no idea.

0:06:040:06:07

Look, he left her. It happens. OK? Everything was rosy...

0:06:070:06:10

Oh, read between the lines, Mick! OK. First the baby.

0:06:100:06:15

Then a big wedding. All stress, all triggers.

0:06:150:06:18

I've been away five minutes, I get back to this.

0:06:180:06:20

The place is literally falling down. Family's in pieces.

0:06:200:06:23

What must he be going through?!

0:06:230:06:25

The one time I need you, Mick. I mean, really need you.

0:06:250:06:29

That poor boy. Where's the phone?

0:06:290:06:30

Oh, your boy, your poor boy. You need to open your eyes, love!

0:06:300:06:33

-Whit, hold up...

-No, she needs to know!

0:06:330:06:35

If he is mad, it ain't in the way you think.

0:06:350:06:39

Cos how mad do you have to be to rob your own family?

0:06:390:06:41

-What?

-Yeah, to plan it, to stand there,

0:06:410:06:43

pretend you don't know nothing when they could've killed Ollie.

0:06:430:06:46

Now Shirl, she's in prison.

0:06:460:06:47

And we've been working like dogs trying to pay off his debts.

0:06:470:06:52

And he's well out of it so, yeah, keep going on about your poor boy.

0:06:520:06:56

I don't know how much more of this I can take.

0:07:050:07:07

The front of that man.

0:07:070:07:09

If anyone is going to speak to my son like that...

0:07:090:07:11

-Maybe you should ease off Shaki a bit and all.

-Eh?

0:07:110:07:14

You made your point, Mum, and he feels awful.

0:07:140:07:17

Poor kid, he's been holed up in his room.

0:07:170:07:19

-I know, yes, he brought this on himself but...

-Oh, yeah.

0:07:190:07:23

But with you in one ear and Martin harassing him, how's he...?

0:07:230:07:27

Harassing?! Oh, do me a favour, Kush.

0:07:270:07:30

Most blokes I know would've given him more than a couple of dirty looks.

0:07:300:07:32

And you know Bex is refusing to go back to school?

0:07:320:07:35

Yeah, she says she's leaving. So Martin is out of his mind

0:07:350:07:38

with worry, so will you just back off, the pair of you?

0:07:380:07:41

Two coffees.

0:07:420:07:43

Talk to me.

0:07:520:07:54

I know it sounds bad.

0:07:580:08:01

What am I talking about? It is bad.

0:08:010:08:04

-I know it is.

-Where's Ollie?

0:08:040:08:06

He's with Johnny, he's sweet.

0:08:070:08:09

I didn't want to believe it either but it is the brutal truth.

0:08:090:08:11

I was there, Mick. It's in my head, clear as day.

0:08:110:08:16

He was as shocked as anyone.

0:08:160:08:18

I mean, who told you?

0:08:180:08:19

It was from the horse's mouth.

0:08:220:08:25

I'm sorry.

0:08:250:08:27

And I will never, ever be able to get my head around this.

0:08:290:08:32

But he told me it wasn't meant to go down like that.

0:08:340:08:37

Like, who brings a feather duster to rob an East London boozer?

0:08:390:08:44

But he knew.

0:08:440:08:46

He set it up.

0:08:460:08:48

And he covered for 'em.

0:08:480:08:49

So you're telling me he stood there while they

0:08:490:08:52

attacked Johnny and his little brother? No, no...

0:08:520:08:54

I know you don't want to entertain the idea...

0:08:540:08:56

They must've forced him!

0:08:560:08:57

They were animals. They must've threatened him.

0:08:570:09:00

Nothing else makes sense. Why would he do that?

0:09:000:09:02

Money, it was money! OK? It was money.

0:09:020:09:05

Cos he was lying through his teeth about his job.

0:09:050:09:07

He wasn't an executive. He was a skivvy at a call centre.

0:09:070:09:10

But yet he still wants to give it the big man, and spend money like there's no tomorrow.

0:09:100:09:14

Because of her.

0:09:140:09:16

He'd have been perfectly happy staying at home but, oh, no.

0:09:160:09:18

No, no. She wanted some fancy flat, with new this, new that.

0:09:180:09:21

I said it was too much. I said it'd tip him over the edge...

0:09:210:09:23

Stop! Just stop it. OK? Stop it.

0:09:230:09:27

Because without her and Johnny, I'd have gone under.

0:09:270:09:29

You don't know what it's been like.

0:09:290:09:31

It has been a 'mare.

0:09:310:09:33

And after what he did to her, because...

0:09:340:09:37

Not only is he a thief,

0:09:390:09:42

and a liar...

0:09:420:09:43

..he's also a wife-beater.

0:09:440:09:46

Yeah, my son.

0:09:470:09:49

And I didn't want to have to tell you that.

0:09:510:09:55

And I've been wracking my brains to try and dress it up.

0:09:550:09:59

But I can't.

0:09:590:10:00

Because he done that, L.

0:10:010:10:03

Why do you think I didn't pay the fine? I couldn't.

0:10:050:10:10

-But you said that Shirl...

-Because I'm a liar, an' all.

0:10:120:10:15

He was running up debts all over the gaff and...

0:10:160:10:19

It was, like, payday loans, credit cards.

0:10:190:10:22

I had to sort something out cos he was going to do something stupid

0:10:220:10:25

or he was going to end up in a ditch.

0:10:250:10:27

And we've got nothing.

0:10:300:10:31

Nothing.

0:10:320:10:34

So I can't pay to mend the roof, I can't pay the fines.

0:10:360:10:39

I can't even pay that poxy cab that just had you over.

0:10:410:10:44

But you said there was loads, even after bringing Mum.

0:10:460:10:50

What happened to no secrets?

0:10:540:10:56

You all right, mate? You fancy anything? No?

0:11:080:11:11

Just going to ignore me. Lovely.

0:11:110:11:13

I ain't made of glass, Mick.

0:11:250:11:27

Yeah, I know.

0:11:270:11:28

This is huge. How could you not tell me? I'm his mother. You're my husband.

0:11:280:11:32

Yeah, I let you down. You already said.

0:11:320:11:34

I don't want to argue with you. You're bang on.

0:11:340:11:38

-You went away for five minutes...

-I didn't mean that.

0:11:380:11:40

What was I supposed to think? I was worried. Upset.

0:11:400:11:44

If you'd been straight with me from the start...

0:11:440:11:46

How could I? How could I?

0:11:460:11:47

Your mum was on her last legs. Do you think I wanted to lie to you?

0:11:470:11:51

Do you think I wanted to drive myself mad trying to sort out this nightmare?

0:11:510:11:54

Cos if anyone else had done this to you, or my family,

0:11:540:11:57

I would've killed 'em.

0:11:570:11:59

I would've killed 'em, L.

0:11:590:12:00

We're broke.

0:12:020:12:04

We're broke.

0:12:060:12:07

All right!

0:12:070:12:08

It's not great, obviously, but...

0:12:100:12:12

Bricks and mortar. We've been skint before. Worse than this. Remember?

0:12:120:12:18

With three babies, relying on my mum for a roof over our heads.

0:12:180:12:20

You're just not listening to me...

0:12:200:12:22

Do you think I'm not angry?

0:12:220:12:24

Do you think I don't want to kill him right now?!

0:12:240:12:26

I mean, what did I do?

0:12:260:12:28

Was it something from when he was little?

0:12:280:12:29

-Because I tried to teach him right from wrong.

-I know, babe...

0:12:290:12:32

Maybe I was too soft or too strict or, erm...

0:12:320:12:35

Well, he didn't get as much attention as the other two.

0:12:350:12:37

Nancy had her epilepsy and Johnny had such a rough start.

0:12:370:12:39

Now you're just looking for excuses that don't exist.

0:12:390:12:42

He made a decision...

0:12:420:12:43

No, something made him. OK?

0:12:430:12:45

Because even as a kid, he couldn't lie to me.

0:12:450:12:47

He never so much as snuck a few extra pick 'n' mix,

0:12:470:12:49

and now you're telling me...

0:12:490:12:51

Maybe it was Afghanistan.

0:12:540:12:56

Dean then.

0:12:590:13:01

Don't look at me like that. All right? You know how much he struggled.

0:13:020:13:05

Yeah, we all did.

0:13:050:13:06

If you're looking for someone to blame...

0:13:110:13:14

I tried talking to him. I tried to get into his nut.

0:13:160:13:19

I really tried, it's just that...

0:13:210:13:24

Everything he said just...

0:13:240:13:26

..didn't justify, like...

0:13:270:13:28

The only thing I could hold on to, the only thing that made any sense,

0:13:320:13:37

was that in some mad, twisted way, he was just doing what I taught him.

0:13:370:13:42

I know that sounds pony...

0:13:440:13:45

..but, like, I drilled it into him what it is to be a man, you know.

0:13:470:13:50

What men do - we provide.

0:13:510:13:54

And somehow...

0:13:570:13:59

it went in...

0:13:590:14:01

but he just didn't understand.

0:14:010:14:03

Look at me, I've done exactly the same thing.

0:14:040:14:09

I've kept things from you, and I've tried to be the man,

0:14:110:14:16

and sort everything out.

0:14:160:14:18

But I just couldn't do it, L. I couldn't do it.

0:14:180:14:21

It's OK.

0:14:240:14:26

All right, we'll sort it out. Somehow.

0:14:260:14:30

Together, as a family.

0:14:310:14:33

No matter what he's done, he's still our boy.

0:14:350:14:39

He should be here with us.

0:14:390:14:41

No. I, I... I can't have him around me.

0:14:410:14:44

Not at the moment. You know, like...

0:14:460:14:48

In time.

0:14:490:14:50

He's better off where he is. He's got a mate.

0:14:510:14:54

He's got rules, he's got regulations.

0:14:540:14:57

It's like he's back in the army.

0:14:570:14:59

You should give him a ring, though.

0:15:010:15:03

Cos...he'll be really pleased to hear from you.

0:15:030:15:08

He'll be relieved.

0:15:100:15:11

I just...

0:15:140:15:16

I just need to know that we're OK.

0:15:180:15:20

I need to hear it.

0:15:200:15:21

Because things have been so bad,

0:15:230:15:26

I need to hear it from you, L.

0:15:260:15:28

I miss you, Mick.

0:15:350:15:36

I miss you, baby.

0:15:380:15:39

There's not a day goes by that I don't need you by my side.

0:15:400:15:44

Mum's doing my head in.

0:15:440:15:46

I know she can't help it, and I'm horrible for getting annoyed,

0:15:460:15:50

and if it's bad for me, it's worse for her, I know that.

0:15:500:15:54

She's on at me 24/7, I can't do nothing right.

0:15:540:15:57

Ollie, the pub. Now this.

0:15:570:15:59

Sometimes I just want to scream.

0:16:010:16:03

No. You're great, baby.

0:16:030:16:05

You're great.

0:16:060:16:08

Remember, I've seen you in action.

0:16:080:16:10

With Stan, you know.

0:16:100:16:11

But I had you then, holding me together.

0:16:110:16:13

I can't do this without you. I just can't.

0:16:150:16:18

Dad's not here. He's...

0:16:320:16:33

No, it's not him I've come to see, actually. Can I just...?

0:16:330:16:36

Thank you.

0:16:360:16:38

-OK. Uh, I know this is a little bit weird.

-What...?

0:16:380:16:42

And before you say, he didn't send me.

0:16:420:16:44

If he knew I was here...

0:16:440:16:45

I'm worried about you, Bex.

0:16:470:16:50

All right? All this, it's partly my fault,

0:16:500:16:54

cos none of it would have happened if I'd made Shaks just delete those pictures straight off.

0:16:540:16:58

He's as upset about all this as you are.

0:16:580:17:00

Is everyone calling him a tramp? No.

0:17:000:17:02

No, because he is the big man, isn't he?

0:17:020:17:05

All right. You're right. And it's not fair.

0:17:050:17:08

It's not. But you cannot jeopardise your future.

0:17:080:17:12

-If you don't take your GCSEs...

-I'll get an apprenticeship.

0:17:130:17:15

There's going to be competition, isn't there? You'll be up against

0:17:150:17:18

kids that have got an A in this, an A-star in that.

0:17:180:17:21

You've only got a couple of months left.

0:17:210:17:22

You have no idea what it's like. Everyone laughing, talking.

0:17:220:17:26

I have nobody.

0:17:260:17:28

You think Shaks doesn't feel it?

0:17:280:17:30

He's been holed up in his room all weekend.

0:17:300:17:33

He wouldn't even answer his phone.

0:17:330:17:35

You cannot let this affect your whole life, Bex.

0:17:370:17:43

You've just got to face it head on, all right?

0:17:430:17:47

Cos in a few weeks' time they'll all be on to the next big drama.

0:17:470:17:51

Everything's going to be all right.

0:17:570:17:59

Course it is.

0:17:590:18:00

Really.

0:18:020:18:04

I'm going to sort it, Mick.

0:18:040:18:05

Look at us.

0:18:070:18:09

You can't carry on like this, and I certainly can't.

0:18:090:18:12

Your mum needs you.

0:18:130:18:15

She doesn't want anyone else looking after her.

0:18:160:18:19

Neither do you.

0:18:190:18:20

You can't always have what you want.

0:18:230:18:26

If I had a penny for every time she'd said that to me.

0:18:260:18:29

All right, what do you want to do now then?

0:18:370:18:39

And don't say Night Garden,

0:18:390:18:40

because I've had enough Igglepiggle to last me a lifetime.

0:18:400:18:44

You all right, Lauren?

0:18:440:18:45

Eh, what's that?

0:18:480:18:50

Remember your grandad?

0:18:500:18:52

Doubtful.

0:18:520:18:53

See you.

0:18:540:18:55

What about Mr Tumble, eh?

0:18:550:18:58

At least he uses proper words.

0:18:580:19:00

I said I'd help Max with the kids later.

0:19:040:19:07

I hope he's paying you.

0:19:070:19:08

How much longer are you going to go on like this?

0:19:080:19:11

Just give her time, Martin.

0:19:110:19:13

The more you keep pushing, the more she'll dig her heels in.

0:19:130:19:15

You know what it's like.

0:19:150:19:17

Bex...

0:19:170:19:18

I've got band practice tonight.

0:19:180:19:20

I told the school you had a migraine.

0:19:200:19:23

-There you go, son.

-Cheers, Mick.

0:19:300:19:33

You heard from your brother?

0:19:330:19:35

Uh, yeah, he's doing all right, I think.

0:19:350:19:37

I'm not expecting miracles.

0:19:370:19:38

No, course.

0:19:380:19:40

The fact that man even makes it out of bed every day, you know.

0:19:400:19:43

My old woman's only down the road and I've been struggling.

0:19:430:19:46

You're a patient man, Mick.

0:19:460:19:48

I know a mum's a mum but... priorities and all that.

0:19:480:19:51

So you'll send someone out to assess her?

0:19:550:19:58

It's not that I don't want to look after her.

0:19:580:20:00

I do, it's just...

0:20:000:20:02

I've got a toddler and, well, we've had a few problems at home so...

0:20:020:20:07

Right.

0:20:090:20:10

Yeah, course.

0:20:120:20:13

Right, thank you. Thanks.

0:20:130:20:15

They say it's a dog's life, don't they, girl?

0:20:210:20:25

What I wouldn't give to swap with you.

0:20:250:20:27

Sorry, I didn't realise...

0:20:310:20:33

No, no, it's all right. He's fast asleep. Come in.

0:20:330:20:36

Anyway, I think I owe you an apology.

0:20:380:20:42

-I shouldn't have said all that...

-On behalf of my son,

0:20:450:20:48

if nothing else.

0:20:480:20:49

-To say I'm ashamed is...

-It's not down to you, is it?

0:20:500:20:53

I'm not going to make excuses for him.

0:20:530:20:56

After what he's done to you,

0:20:570:20:59

I'm sure you don't feel very charitable but...

0:20:590:21:02

You do know he's not a bad person.

0:21:020:21:04

I don't want to talk about him, Linda.

0:21:040:21:06

I do think he's happier down there, though.

0:21:080:21:11

Look, I know it's weird me being here.

0:21:130:21:15

If you want me to go...

0:21:170:21:18

Oh, no, no. Don't be silly.

0:21:180:21:20

Mick...

0:21:220:21:24

Mick says you've been his rock.

0:21:240:21:26

Even after the accident, most people would have gone to pieces.

0:21:270:21:32

Besides, it's going to take all of us to get this place back on track.

0:21:320:21:36

I can't do much before Tracey gets back but Shirl's left a big hole,

0:21:360:21:41

and it's time I came home.

0:21:410:21:45

Mum's going to be upset, of course she is, but I don't know when she's going to be back on her feet.

0:21:460:21:51

If ever.

0:21:510:21:52

I can't sacrifice everyone else.

0:21:520:21:55

You're putting her in a home?

0:21:550:21:57

I think she could manage with carers. It'll mean moving.

0:21:590:22:04

Sheltered accommodation maybe.

0:22:040:22:06

She'll have to give up the pub and the flat that comes with it.

0:22:070:22:12

I don't want to.

0:22:120:22:14

If I could tear myself in half...

0:22:140:22:16

This place is in serious trouble, Whit.

0:22:190:22:22

We're getting on top of it though. I know it's tight, but,

0:22:220:22:26

quiz nights - they're bringing more money in, you know.

0:22:260:22:30

I've got a few ideas.

0:22:300:22:32

It's not your responsibility.

0:22:320:22:34

I'm grateful but I can't do everything.

0:22:340:22:37

And Mum'll probably be better off anyway.

0:22:370:22:40

And what about Mick? He already feels like he's let everyone down.

0:22:400:22:44

He needs me.

0:22:440:22:45

You're at the end of the phone.

0:22:450:22:48

How do you think he'd feel if you added Elaine to the list?

0:22:480:22:51

Stace, that's just stupid.

0:22:570:22:58

So you've told her then?

0:22:580:23:00

You've asked her round and asked to see Louie?

0:23:000:23:02

Max, how do you expect her to feel?

0:23:020:23:04

You've barely said two words since you came out the nick.

0:23:040:23:06

What you talking about? I had 'em all round here after New Year.

0:23:060:23:09

Now you're looking after someone else's kids.

0:23:090:23:10

I'm helping Jack out, ain't I? It's not a competition.

0:23:100:23:14

But she don't see it like that.

0:23:140:23:16

You should have gone round there, or at least called her.

0:23:160:23:19

-If you ain't forgiven her then...

-Jack is just going through a rough time, ain't he?

0:23:190:23:22

-Just got me tied up.

-I know.

0:23:220:23:24

But if you want a relationship with her and your grandson,

0:23:240:23:26

then just tell her that's all it is.

0:23:260:23:28

Thank goodness there's one of you I don't have to worry about.

0:23:390:23:42

You will have to look after yourself though.

0:23:420:23:45

It's going to be hectic with just the three of you.

0:23:450:23:47

You've got to eat properly. Promise me.

0:23:470:23:50

You can't do your course work if you're half-starved. You are keeping up with it, aren't you?

0:23:500:23:54

We've stocked up on oven chips and ketchup.

0:23:540:23:56

-That's two of my five a day, right?

-No!

0:23:560:23:58

-Kidding. Just concentrate on getting Gran better, OK?

-OK.

0:23:580:24:01

Are you sure you're OK with this?

0:24:110:24:13

Yeah, it's like Johnny said...

0:24:130:24:15

Hey, I thought we said no more lies.

0:24:150:24:17

I miss you.

0:24:190:24:21

It won't be for much longer, I'm sure.

0:24:230:24:25

And if it all gets too much then just...pick up the phone.

0:24:270:24:30

Same.

0:24:310:24:33

Go, your mother needs you.

0:24:330:24:36

-I love you.

-I love you.

0:24:380:24:39

I'll see you later.

0:24:510:24:52

Dad, what do you want me to do about...?

0:25:020:25:04

I'm sorry for the...

0:25:100:25:11

I'm sorry.

0:25:130:25:14

It's all right, Dad, I got the message.

0:25:180:25:20

Lauren, don't be like that. I'm only helping Jack out.

0:25:200:25:23

You think I want to be over there with two screaming kids? Got to be joking.

0:25:230:25:26

Well, why didn't you let me know then?

0:25:260:25:28

Cos it's over the road. No big deal, is it?

0:25:280:25:30

I think it's more than that, Dad.

0:25:300:25:32

What you talking about?

0:25:320:25:33

I know, all right? I know that you think that I betrayed you.

0:25:350:25:39

Lauren, where has this come from?

0:25:420:25:44

All right, yeah, if you want the truth, then, yeah, I expected more from you.

0:25:470:25:50

Lauren, what do you want me to say? I ended up in prison.

0:25:520:25:57

It was horrible, and it changed me.

0:25:570:25:59

And on top of everything else, I had to get my head round the fact

0:26:000:26:02

I'd lost you and a grandchild I hadn't even met yet.

0:26:020:26:05

-I'm sorry...

-Look, I just don't see the benefit of us

0:26:080:26:10

keeping looking back.

0:26:100:26:12

Lauren, if we want things to go back to how they were, we've just got to give it time.

0:26:130:26:17

You do want them to though, don't you?

0:26:180:26:20

Course I do.

0:26:220:26:23

Come here.

0:26:250:26:26

-OK?

-Mm-hmm.

0:26:290:26:30

Mick?

0:26:330:26:34

Mick.

0:26:470:26:48

Just go back downstairs. I won't be long, yeah?

0:26:490:26:52

I'm angry! All right? I'm angry.

0:26:550:26:57

I'm angry and I know I shouldn't be angry.

0:26:570:26:59

She saw the mess I was in, and she just left me.

0:26:590:27:02

No, she didn't want to, OK? She had to.

0:27:020:27:04

You can't expect her just to abandon Elaine.

0:27:060:27:08

She's ill, she needs her.

0:27:080:27:09

What about me, Whit?

0:27:090:27:10

What about what I need?

0:27:120:27:13

Just leave me alone, leave me alone. Please leave me alone.

0:27:150:27:18

It won't be forever, OK? She's only at the end of the phone.

0:27:180:27:21

We're all here for you.

0:27:230:27:25

HE SCREAMS

0:27:420:27:44
