You're kind. You're thoughtful.
Wherever you go, you bring laughter.
You're beautiful, like the rarest orchid.
I've waited too long to do this. So, will you?
Will I what, though?
No, Cherry, no!
Cherry, no, Cherry!
Here we go.
Have a good day installing the wireless or whatever it is that you're doing.
Yeah, I'll get us a takeaway.
You know how to spoil a girl.
-See you later.
-Who's here for lunch?
Me, after my shift.
You back at the Icon today?
I've got to get some cash somehow.
-What about you, Immie? Isn't it about time you got a summer job?
-I suppose so.
-That's if you can fit it in with your community payback.
I suppose that's the sort of thing
-you'll have to sort out in the interview. Bit tricky.
Shall we leave it?
It's not going to be like this all summer, is it?
I'm so very sorry.
Have a think about your options.
Talk it through.
Yes, we will.
Well at least talk to me, Tom!
-It doesn't matter what you say.
No! I've made my mind up. You know I'm right.
Everything all right?
-I'm just tired of keeping the peace.
Rob just won't let it go. He keeps sniping at Immie.
She's keeping her head down.
I know it's going to kick off all over again
and I don't think I can stand it.
He'll calm down. You just need to give him some time.
I just want us to get back to normal.
If you could ever call us that.
Cherry's right. It's bound to take time.
Yeah, I'd better get on.
Gin and tonic, please.
-Oh, you know.
Well, you've come to the right place.
I'm beginning to think I have.
Nice young man pouring me a large drink.
-Ice and lemon?
Let's push the boat out, shall we?
-And sail away somewhere nice.
You can steer and I'll sunbathe on the deck.
I'm not raising my voice!
But can someone tell me why it has taken until now...?
No. No, no, no, listen to me.
Why it's taken until now to tell me that the heat will affect the strings?
No-one mentioned that before.
Don't put me on hold.
Hello, mate! Daniel sent me. I'm here to save the day.
Have you got anything to eat?
Mate, just tell me what you want me to do. I'm here to help.
Help put on the old ball and chain!
Daniel say's he's sorry he couldn't make it
but one of his patients died this morning.
The string quartet can't play.
The humidity in the greenhouse puts their instruments out of tune.
-Yeah. The wood expands.
They've got a trumpet.
Or a xylophonist.
Great. Why don't we just send in the clowns?!
This is getting ridiculous! We're way behind schedule!
We should have picked up the table and chairs by now.
-Mate, it's not the end of the world.
That's OK, then!
Do you have any idea what I'm trying to achieve here?
This is supposed to be the best day my life
and I'm trying to make it perfect.
Daniel? Jimmi's having a freak-out.
No, I'm not having a freak out.
The musicians won't play.
Is that someone crying...?
Oh, yeah, sorry, mate. Bye.
I'm not having a freak-out.
He says you should sing.
-If I could sing, that's what I'd do.
-I don't know.
Her favourite song.
-No, it would need rehearsing.
-Mate, be spontaneous.
Spontaneous isn't going to work! It's going to need rehearsing to get it right.
Jimmi! Chill! Serenade her. She'll love it. It'll be romantic.
I could hire a keyboard player.
Right, OK. Phone the agency.
-Hire a keyboard player.
-I'll do it.
Right. Let's go.
Karen, I was thinking about what you were saying about Rob and Imogen.
I know it's none of my business,
but have you ever considered family therapy?
-Are you serious?
I've a colleague I can recommend.
I don't think so.
It's CBT. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
-It's basically about changing attitudes...
..trying out new ways of thinking.
We're not that sort of family.
It's very down to earth.
More practical than you'd think. Some people find it really helpful.
I don't know, Elaine.
I'll leave it with you.
-So, what got you behind a bar?
You're a student?
-So this is just a port in a storm.
-Yeah. I'm doing Law.
You must be clever. HE LAUGHS
Don't know about that.
Anyway, in the meantime, I need to earn some cash.
I've got a proposition for you.
I've got some things that need moving round the garden. Too heavy for me.
Lend me a hand after your shift and I'll give you £50.
-Sounds a bit easy. What's the catch?
My husband is away and I need a bit of muscle.
Yeah, OK. Deal.
OK, see you later.
Can I help you?
-We've booked the tropical gardens for tonight.
-Booked it for?
A private party, just the two of us.
Oh, no, no, me and my fiancee.
He's going to propose.
So, if you'll excuse us.
Just a moment...
I'm Bob Millard, head gardener.
Let me tell you something. My plants are very sensitive.
Something the marketing manager seems incapable of grasping.
You won't even notice we're there.
-We're just going to put up a few fairy lights. Cook a little bit of food.
Just a small grill for the lobster.
Not in my greenhouse you don't.
It'll throw the temperatures all over the shop.
-But your events manager said...
-No cooking in there, end of story.
OK, we can work round that.
Don't worry. Your plants will be at the top of our agenda.
50 quid, that's why.
Mmm! Good luck with that. Cougar time. Nice.
-Have you got your lucky pants on?
-Just because you haven't got a job.
-And you have - as a gigolo!
I was thinking that we could go for family therapy.
Elaine thought it would really help. She can recommend someone.
Why can't Elaine do it?
I don't know.
At least we know her.
Yes, I can ask.
What about you, Jack?
You'd need to be there.
It's not like my marriage has been in trouble.
Or I've been out on the rob.
-I've done nothing wrong. So what's it got to do with me?
It's family therapy! The clue is in the title.
We would all need to be there.
Anyway, if I can't get you to do it,
how am I going to get your dad to agree?
OK, here's the plan.
No cooking. We'll have lobster salad.
-Think that'll work?
-Cherry like salad?
That's what I'm going to do. OK.
Plenty of time.
Hi! You came!
Hope you're ready to do some humping!
You can start with these pots.
OK. I'll see you later! Bye.
A friend of mine from nursing college. She's doing some fundraising for a children's ward.
She wants me to help her do some collecting after work.
Sounds like fun.
Last time we took over the town centre dressed as vegetables.
My cabbage suit got stuck in the library door.
-It was boiling in there.
-Oh! Boiled cabbage.
Yeah, that was me.
What you were talking about earlier.
-To be honest, I think we need something.
-I'll get you the details.
-I was wondering, could you do it?
-I don't think that's a good idea.
We try and avoid working with people we know. To stay objective.
You see, Jack and Immie would rather, and I know Rob...
It has to be right for him, or he's not going to listen.
I think he's more likely to say "yes", if it's you.
Please. We need help.
Maybe let Rob think it was his idea?
Reverse psychology, never fails.
-Are you sure you know what you're doing, getting hitched?
-I can't wait.
Cos if you don't mind me saying, you seem a little tense.
You've got to understand. Cherry's been dreaming about this day since she was three years old.
No pressure, then.
Why the office didn't issue you with keys...
Do they think I've got nothing better to do?
If you ask me, there should be a standardised lock on all these greenhouses.
You are not, under any circumstances,
to leave this door open.
Here, please. This'll give you muscles!
Not that you need them.
-Are all your family as healthy as you?
-My sister's got good stamina.
She can watch MTV for eight hours without a break.
My dad's quite fit, I suppose. For his age.
So if you could...
..just move this.
Where would you like them?
Over there, perhaps.
It's a self portrait. Not really.
-Over here, then?
Well, that's it. If you could just sweep up a bit.
Then come to the kitchen, I'll give you a nice cold beer while I sort your money out.
As long as you're here by 1900 hours, it'll be fine.
1900 hours? We're not invading Normandy.
Can I ask you a question?
How would you like it, it's the middle of winter,
you're sleeping in your house with the heating turned up,
you're all warm and cosy
-and I come and open all the windows?
-I get the point!
-No need to get narky.
We get it. Door closed.
Jimmi, chill, man.
Let's get the table sorted.
Oh, great! Blue!
Warm, isn't it?
Right. Let's get the workman a beer.
Thank you so much for helping me.
I couldn't have managed without you.
Your husband. Is he away on business or something?
He's... Yes, that's right.
He's... Gone away.
No, he's left me.
There's something I want to show you before you go.
Not too close. Then we'll go for a rehearsal.
Well, if it makes no difference to me, why are you telling me?
-Fine. I'll see you later.
-The caterer's taking something to another job. First I've heard of it.
-As long as they're here before Cherry gets here. What time's she coming?
-I've got to phone her.
-You haven't asked her yet?!
-Yeah, I know.
So how are you going to get her here without suspecting?
What do you think?
Actually, my sister's an artist.
50. And, Jack, I won't beat about the bush.
I've got another proposition for you.
It's what I usually pay.
For a model. It's the going rate.
You can even keep your pants on if you want.
-Hey, it's me.
-'I know it is. Everything all right?'
I wondered if you wanted to go to a concert?
I thought we were getting a takeaway.
-'At the horticultural gardens.'
-What sort of concert?
-Are you winding me up!
Yes, you are! I know when you are!
-I can hear it in your voice. What are you up to?
-I'm not... OK, that was a wind up.
What's really going on is a talk about plants.
Seriously, it's going to be really interesting. It's by a famous plant...person!
And there's going to be a... demonstration.
Being eaten. It should be really interesting.
It starts at 7.30, could you meet me by the gates?
I'm helping Sarah do some fundraising after work.
-'OK! I'll be there.'
Boxer shorts, perfect.
Yes, I was thinking...
There's just one more thing...
-we need to do before you go.
-What are you doing?!
-Oh, come on. I'll pay you.
-This is such a bad idea.
# When I fall in love
# It will be forever
# Or I'll never fall in...love...
# In a restless world like this is
# Love is ended... #
What are you doing? I thought you said you knew this?
Are you trying to make me look stupid? Oh, yeah, take a break.
Kev? What are...?
Sorry, mate. Plug it back in, it'll chill out again in no time.
It'll be fine.
I was going to ask you. Have you got the ring?
Of course I have.
Let's have a look then!
-What the bloomin' heck's going on?
-I said no lights on the trees.
I beg your pardon. How dare you? You come in here,
lording it around in my greenhouse, parading about.
Who do you think you are?
I've paid ridiculous amounts to come in here today
-so get out! Leave us be.
-I'm going nowhere, mate. This is my greenhouse.
-What's the matter with him?
-He's just a bit stressed out.
You know, important evening.
But, yeah, no lights on the trees. Door closed at all times. OK, mate?
-What's this? Bribery?
OK. Let's not panic.
You've just lost the ring!
It's not what you think.
You have to let me explain.
I came round to move stuff in the garden.
This is the most hurtful thing you could ever do. Today of all days.
Tom, lots of men suffer with this.
It's nothing to be ashamed of.
You're making it sound like I can't do it in front of him!
No! He's not impotent!
Tom and I found out we can't have children today.
Tom can't be a father. We've had some tests.
That's right. We found out Tom wasn't a man after all
and I thought "It's OK. She can still love you like this."
And I come back here to find her with her hands all over some kid!
After the years we've been together?
After all these years and you walk out on me!
-How does that make me feel?
-That's your excuse for this?
Tom. You have to believe me! I did it for you!
How do you work that out?
I wanted to get pregnant!
-So that you'd stay with me!
Are you actually mad?
Tom, I panicked!
I know it sounds a crazy idea, but I thought if I got pregnant,
you might believe the doctors were wrong.
We could have a baby and we could love it and you'd think it was yours.
I saw him and I saw his eyes and hair were the same colour,
and I thought if I could make myself do it,
even though my stomach turned at the thought...
I know how gutted you were when the doctor talked about a donor.
I just wanted to make everything right for you.
I don't want to lose you.
You mean everything to me.
I've been so stupid.
We do need to talk about donors. I'm so sorry.
But not just some nobody pulled off the street. We need to do it properly.
Excuse me, a "nobody?"
Actually, I think I would have made a very good donor.
KEYBOARD PLAYS "When I Fall In Love"
KEYBOARDIST MAKES A MISTAKE
Oh! That's it. Pack your keyboard up and go home, I've had enough.
Telford Gardens? You've got the wrong address!
What, are you completely incompetent, or what?
No, forget it!
The caterer has gone to the wrong address.
-That's is, pack it all up. Call it off.
-You're joking? I'm covered in slime!
-It's not about you!
You're right, it's not about me.
It's not about some lost caterer either, or singing, or any of that.
It's about you telling Cherry you want to be with her!
You and her forever.
Do you want to walk away from that?
-No, so sit yourself down.
Give me ten minutes to sort everything out, and chill out. OK?
'And the worst thing was,'
I didn't even get my money.
Oi! Serves you right.
She was paying you for sex!
What, is prostitution your new money-spinner?
Better than going on the rob!
Quiet! Just remember what I said.
Leave this to me, all right?
Oh, thanks, love.
Did you have a good day?
Mmm. I could have done without two hours of paperwork, but apart from that, yeah.
-How about you?
-Yes, actually. It was very interesting.
-I was talking to Elaine today.
And she had a very interesting idea, I thought.
About getting us all talking.
As a family.
It's a CBT thing, family therapy that Elaine mentioned.
What it is... It's about talking,
and this is the important thing, Rob, about listening.
Courtesy of the local off-licence. I've booked you into Vallonchini's, the best restaurant in town.
You propose here, you drink a toast to your future wife, then off to a nice restaurant.
'Hi, just to say I'm finishing off here. Then I'll be on my way.'
Cherry, the talk's been cancelled, apparently.
-So why don't you just carry on?
-'Are you sure?'
-Yeah. I'll see you at home. Bye.
-See you later. Love you!
So it comes from us, really.
Realising what the problems are, talking it all through, properly.
What do you think?
It's got to be worth a try.
You would at least agree with that?
I think I'll have my dinner in front of the television.
Rob, it's got to be worth a go!
What, and let one of your poncy doctor friends mess about with my family?
Not in a million years!
Maybe it wasn't such a good idea anyway.
It's a good idea, Jack.
And he's going to come round to it, whether he likes it or not!
-Thanks for coming.
-Not here. I've got my reputation to consider.
-I knew there was something going on.
-What do you mean?
All this "Let's go for a walk in the country and pick daisies" schtick. Come on.
-Heston, what are you doing here?
-Home visit. Duty calls. Had to...
get some temporary transport.
