-Er, do you have a clean hanky?
-Mike, stop fussing.
-You never fussed over me when I started.
But it was just a different level of fussing
for work experience versus... a full-time job.
Now, you know you can take a break if you are feeling tired.
Get Faith to show you where the loos are... And if you...
Hey - don't you look smart in your uniform.
-Good luck for today, yeah.
If anything goes wrong, you know you can call me.
See you later, OK?
Make us proud.
All right? Bye.
Can I interest you in our premium membership?
-How's it going?
I've had the tour and I know where the loos are.
Frank, what you doing here?
I'm loving the new look.
Frank! Get off! Frank, get of him!
Break it up, you lot! Where do you think you are?
-What are you doing?
And, you two, you're fired!
Forty. Five. Minutes!
-That has to be some kind of world record -
under an hour to lose your job!
Faith was really into this work experience.
You've ruined it for her.
Yeah, well, I tried...
Why on Earth would you hit Liam? What were you thinking?
He just got...
Do you have any idea how hard it is to find work around here?
The amount of time and effort I put in with
the Council Employment Officer, to get you seen for that job.
Yeah, well... I bet they only hired me cos they had to.
-What are you talking about?
-I'm in care. And I've got cerebral palsy.
That must have ticked all the boxes.
Did Shani da Silva strike you as the kind of person who'd give
any job to any anybody, just to fill a quota?
How's it going to look on my Personal Statement for uni?
Two weeks' work experience, then I get fired.
Surely the manager must know you're not someone who'd start a fight.
Maybe you can go back when he's calmed down?
So, it is true? I thought Tyler was winding me up.
What did you do to get fired?
She tried to stop a fight between Frank and Liam.
-Frank's not violent.
If he hit this Liam, then he must have done something to deserve it.
No-one deserves to get hit.
I'd be hiding too,
if I'd had such an epic fail on my first day at work.
If you didn't care about that job, fine...
I did care!
How could you let it spill over onto Faith?
How am I going to fix it?
You need to fix it for Mike, too.
He's acting like it was him you punched, not the plumber's mate.
I am such a total idiot.
It was seeing Liam so pleased to see me,
when he'd been ignoring me for months.
I just lost it.
Only weak people fight with their fists.
Strong people fight with words.
I can't believe you'd have the nerve to show up.
I've just been subjected to a 20-minute rant
from the leisure centre manager about you and your friend.
She was trying to stop me fighting.
I'm really, really sorry about what happened.
And so you should be.
Can you ask the manager to take Faith back?
Not in the mood he's in.
And she's not the only one who lost out.
The man you attacked was on a work placement.
He got sacked too.
# Today is going to be the day that they're going to throw it back to you
# By now you should've somehow realised what you gotta do
# I don't believe that anybody Feels the way I do
# About you now... #
All right, I should've kept in contact a bit more.
You didn't keep in touch at all!
I was busy. No need to hit me for it, though, was there?
I thought we were mates.
What's with all the gear?
I've been sleeping in the back of the plumber's van - until you got me evicted.
What about Jack?
Didn't work out, did it?
What did you do?
Nothing! He was just on my case all the time.
-Doing my course work. Making sure I had a work placement.
Treating me like a kid. Look, I'm nearly 18.
-Should be up to me what I want to do with my life, not him.
Tell me about it.
Can I stay at yours for a few nights until I get myself straight?
I'll have to ask Mike.
-I thought you had your own place?
-So you did get all my messages!
I'm sorry. I just got caught up with stuff.
So, how come you're still with Mike? What happened to the flat?
Didn't work out.
All right, girls? What's going on?
You really landed one on him.
-You all right?
-How's it going?
You two made up, then?
Yeah. Good as new.
I'm not surprised Shani won't speak up for Faith.
How could she trust anyone from here, after what you did?
Well done for going to apologise, though.
And I can't believe that you got Liam sacked.
I've said I'm sorry to him, too.
I should hope so.
Can he stay here for a while?
Don't tell me Jack's thrown him out for losing his job?
No, he left before that.
So... You expect me to pick up the pieces?
He's here, isn't he?
Go and get him.
You're being a bit harsh.
I feel so bad for Faith. Me, too.
But I reckon this Shani woman could've done more to get
Faith her job back, you know?
If Shani could have done something to help Faith, she'd have already done it.
I didn't realise you knew Shani that well.
Oh, yes? Like her, do we?
She's very good at her job.
Guys! Right, I've got it. What about a catastrophe risk manager?
If you knew how to do that,
you'd still be working at the leisure centre.
Oooh... Wildlife conservation?
Sorry, you've got to be 18.
Don't suppose you want to be a cleaning lady?
Want to tell me what happened with Jack?
He was doing my head in.
Funny, that's just what he said about you.
When did you speak to him?
About a month ago. He came in to take a witness
statement off Johnny about a mugging.
So, can I stay?
Yes. On one condition - you give Jack a ring
and let him know you're here.
And it's only for this weekend.
There's no spare rooms, you'll have to kip on Frank's floor.
Don't worry, be just like old times.
Go and put them on the table.
Hello, little man, you've got big!
-Good to see you.
-And you. Loving the hair.
I went to see the Council Employment Officer.
Ooh! I bet that made her day.
I tried to get your job back.
Don't worry. I'll sort myself out, thanks.
You're the last person I'd rely on for anything.
How's about we go door-to-door selling pizza again?
Would that cheer you up?
We're too old for that.
We're never too old for a scam, Frank.
I'm in enough trouble for one day.
Faith's an intelligent girl. She'll find another work placement.
And it's not just her,
Look, he'll come round, you'll see. Tell him, May-Li.
Yeah... It still might be an idea to keep a low profile for a few days.
I don't want a low profile, I want to make it right.
Why don't you buy him a box of chocolates and some flowers?
That's not going to work.
It might, if you threw Shani da Silva into the mix.
Sorry, is it just me?
I get how that's good for Mike, but how's it going to help Faith?
Cos then Shani gets to know her...
-Sees how nice she is...
-Feels bad about what happened.
And gets the leisure centre manager to give her the job back.
-Yay... It was just me, then.
Thank you, Kaz. Anyone else?
What are you doing?
Making me look cute.
You'll be so cute, she can't refuse.
-I want to go.
-You're not cute.
I'm telling Mike.
And then go over to her desk, smile and hand it to her.
What if she won't take it?
I'd make her... Give it here.
Harry's doing it.
I want to help.
You're here, that's help enough.
What can I do for you?
It's an invitation.
Ooh! A very sparkly one.
It's to come to lunch.
Don't tell her. Let her read it.
It's very kind of you but I'm afraid I can't come.
Please, Shani. We're making a special meal and...
I'm just trying to say sorry.
I've already accepted your apology. And this wouldn't be appropriate.
Mike'll be there.
Even if Mike's there.
Right, come on, guys.
I don't know why Mike fancies you - you're mean!
Harry, I should have given her the invitation...
-No, you shouldn't.
Well, that's sorted.
One, two, three, go.
# 12 tiny hours, the clock is ticking.
# 12 tiny hours, the clock is ticking. 12... #
I don't want to sing any more.
You weren't really singing in the first place, Mo.
Maybe Shani won't need entertaining as long as the food is all right.
And she wouldn't be coming, if it wasn't for me.
How's the song going, guys?
-We're getting there.
Right, guys, I'm off. See you, everyone.
Have you spoken to Jack yet?
Yeah. Yeah, I left him a voice mail.
Good lad, well done.
You look fancy. Where are you going?
You haven't rung Jack, have you?
There's no point. He won't talk to me.
-How do I know why he don't want to talk to me?
Are you managing her?
I used to. Before she dumped me.
I don't want to talk about it. It's still quite painful, yeah?
The dumping? Or the managing?
# 12 tiny hour Earth... #
Like you wouldn't believe.
Have you written any more?
You should put an album together.
I don't have a singer, remember?
You don't need her. Do it yourself.
You having a laugh?
Studios cost a fortune, don't they?
How did you pay for this?
You know, I used my O'Donovan magic, didn't I?
# The clock is ticking
# We're travelling to the moon and back... #
# ..The 12 tiny hour Earth... #
If he sent you to broker a peace treaty, tell him
nothing doing until he's apologised.
He doesn't know I'm here.
So, why did he move out?
What's he told you?
Enough to know he hasn't told me everything.
Did he tell you about Poppy?
I heard the CD.
I'm guessing he never told you how he paid for the studio?
Did you see the story in the papers,
about that footballer, David Mason, getting nicked for drink-driving?
It was me who spotted him.
And Liam was in the car when I called it in.
-So, apart from the officers who turned up to breathalyse him,
we were the only people who knew about it.
And, suddenly, it's all over the tabloids.
Well, it could have been one of the officers
or someone at the police station.
Yeah? How'd they get pictures from the back-seat of my car?
I don't how the song's going to turn out.
I know why you left Jack's.
-How do you think?
You had no right going there!
"I worked a bit of O'Donovan magic"?
I was desperate. Look, I wanted things TO work between me
and Poppy, I needed the money and...
Dropped Jack right in it, and then ran away.
I couldn't face him.
Do you think I don't know how that feels?
-Why are you being so hard on me?
-Cos you're not trying to fix it.
I don't know how!
But you're a rotten coward and a rotten brother, and a rotten friend.
That's rich, coming from the person who got me fired
and made me homeless.
It's not about me, you loser!
How come you're allowed to fail, Frank? And I'm not.
Oh, wait, that's cos you've got it easy - cos you've got Mike
and the Social Services to back you up.
That is the only thing you know how to do properly - run away!
11.55 - waiters to the garden,
welcome party to the front door.
And don't forget...
Take Sian through the side gate.
So Mike doesn't see her.
Back door. Back door.
Yeah. Thanks for letting me stay.
Wait! Is everything OK with Jack?
Yeah, better than ever.
Ah, sweet. See you.
Everyone's been helping. Even Bailey.
-You've done nothing.
-Why should I?
Because a friend messed up and he's trying to apologise.
To Mike, not me.
This is all for you. Frank's trying to get your job back.
What about the song?
If that's Sian, do what you're supposed to do. I'll sort him out.
If Frank sent you out here to try and stop me, forget it.
After everyone's hard work, rehearsing your song?
They can sing it without me.
Come on, you'd only have to stay another hour.
-I can't. I'm sorry.
-You're not though, are you?
I get why Frank's so angry at you. You're always letting people down.
-Look, don't even go there.
-No, I will!
Did you think why someone as kind and generous as Frank
might have punched you?
-He was homeless and sleeping rough.
Someone like you could help but you were too busy helping yourself.
Right, come on, then. This way.
Ready for lunch?
Why are you dragging me all the way out here?
All this is Mo's handiwork...
-What's Sian doing here?
-She's having lunch with you.
If I'd known you were coming. I'd have got dressed up,
Harry and Floss invited me. They were, erm...
Strawberries are ready!
Have we got any salad dressings?
Right, well... I don't care.
What about the song?
Forget the song.
Right, guys, Let's get this show on the road!
Come on, guys, hold the plates straight, yeah?
Look at that.
It's a hedgehog, that takes me back, I tell you.
-You can't eat all that!
Do you want to help us?
Where will we all sit?
Let's have a picnic.
I'm Faith, by the way.
Oh, hello. Nice to meet you.
That was heavenly. I have committed a sin of gluttony.
That was spectacular. I may never eat again.
That's a shame, I was going ask you out for dinner.
I told you he liked you!
I'd love to go out for dinner, just so long as, please, not tonight.
Anyway, good to meet you.
I've got a couple of work placement ideas for you.
-Shall we talk on Monday?
-Yeah. Thank you.
-We have to take her.
You done good.
You going to push me off, or help me in?
Well, I am trying to decide.
Look, I've come to say sorry.
I never knew you were sleeping rough.
I should have been there for you.
I just can't understand why you wouldn't want to see my new flat.
Want to know the truth?
It'd make a change.
It sounded like you were doing so well.
And that sounds lame, but...
I was waiting to get in touch, till I had something to impress you.
-Not very exciting, is it, trainee plumber?
Liam. I'm your best friend.
The one person that you don't have to impress.
You're such a big girl, Frankie!
# I'm the kind of guy...
# Who always does what I like... #
It's getting there.
I started it yesterday, had a bit of time on my hands.
And his song says it all. So, what do you think?
I think it's a great idea.
So do I.
This is going to sound crazy, but you getting the sack, Frank,
it's been a good thing.
May-Li's right. You've stopped thinking like a kid.
Thanks for letting me try out my song.
It just come to me after...after my best mate
told me how much of a plank I'd been - in all different ways.
Anyway, it's called Tailights.
# You know I'm the guy
# Who always does right
# Push me in the corner
# I'll be ready for the fight
# When you wind me up
# You know I'll explode
# Cos I'm the kind of guy
# Who always knows
# You know I'm the kind of guy
# Who's always so proud
# Talking to my brother
# I don't mean to be so loud
# When you wind me up
# You know I'll explode
# Cos I'm the kind of guy
# Who always knows. #
You set me up.
Somebody had to.
Jack, I don't know what to say.
Your song said it all.
Liam wrote that.
Guess it's my turn to apologise.
I'm sorry I didn't take your music seriously.
That's all right.
Meet my new manager.
I'm going to be a singer-songwriter.
After I get my NVQ in plumbing.
And once I get my degree in Business Studies.
And you'll both live happily ever after!
There's always one.
It's a date, not a meeting with your bank manager.
Have you got a clean hanky?
Ask if you don't understand anything on the menu...
And get the waiter to show you where the loos are.
I'm really moving out this time.
Yeah... And you'll be grand.
Ever since Grandad died...
You've... You've been like family - thank you.
Hey... Man hug?
Don't be late home.
