Whitney's usually down by now. Do you think she's all right?
Yeah, she's fine. She's been fine all weekend.
Yeah, I know, that's what worries me.
Finding out Tony's dead must have shaken her up, despite everything.
Can I have soldiers?
Just drop it, Mum, yeah?
Liam, make yourself useful and finish off that toast, will ya?
-Oh, Tiff, you look pretty!
Alice has been chucking up all night.
She says it's something she's ate.
Have we got a bucket?
Why would I know such things?
That does mean though, that Janine is without childcare today.
Oh, and there's your chance to swoop in and save the day(!)
Don't worry about Alice, will you?
What? My thoughts are with her at this difficult time.
After everything she's done for you, you don't even care about her!
Why this Florence Nightingale thing? You're trying to distract yourself,
aren't you, from Alfie's impending engagement do?
She's good. She's given me a whole list of instructions, obviously.
Baby, I miss you too. Yeah.
No, I'm minding the stall for Pete today,
so how 'bout I come over and see you first, huh?
You're my little snuggle-bunny too, baby. Yeah, you are.
Babe, I got to go.
That was just Pops.
I hope so, we need to talk if it was your dentist.
Mas! What's going on, man?
-How you been? How was Pakistan, man?
Yeah, really good. Why aren't you dressed?
Well, it's because... I'm kind of... Tamwar didn't tell you, no?
Fat Boy needed somewhere to stay for a while
so I said he could crash here.
Yeah, but it's not for free, I'm paying rent!
And, you know, if you don't want me here, then I can leave.
You can stay!
You are the man, Mr Mashy!
Does that make me your new snuggle-bunny?
Get off me, man! Get off. Hey!
Come here. Oh... What's all that?
Oh, management want me to come down harder
on the market traders who don't pay rent.
I'm implementing a new initiative.
Maybe something in black and white
will make them take me more seriously.
Bobby said this one suits my colouring.
-Yeah, he's right, it does.
Excuse me, you can clear up, please, Liam.
-Why am I YOUR slave today?
-Oh, I'll help.
No, you relax. You've hardly stopped these last couple of days.
Yeah, look, s'all right. I don't mind.
I don't need to relax.
Why don't I make a spag bol for us tonight? I'll cook.
-You don't have to.
-You sure, Whit?
-Yes! I'm fine!
-Great, I'll get all the stuff in, shall I?
-Can Bobby come?
-No, you are banned from seeing him.
-Has she said anything to you about Tony at all?
-No. Why would she?
-Oi, look who's back!
Hey. I thought you weren't getting in until tonight?
Oh, well, I decided to get an earlier flight.
I was missing...home.
Why don't you come round for the evening?
Definitely - the more the merrier.
If he's coming, Bobby should be allowed!
No, he's not! OK?
Right, see you later.
See you later. You all right, Mas? Did you have a nice time.
-Yeah, it was great.
INDISTINCT CHATTER IN BACKGROUND
-Now are you sure you can remember everything?
Yes. Fat Boy's manning the stall all day so I can be here.
Don't worry, get off to your meeting.
Look, I know it might look easy, OK?
But there's more to running a chippy than meets the eye!
Yeah all right, when I have a cod crisis I'll give you a call.
You know, you could always ask Lucy to give me a hand,
she knows the ropes.
I think she'll be happier knocking around the house watching TV,
-now that she's a lady of leisure.
-I don't think she sees it that way.
Hey, Luce, when you get this, can you drop my wallet
round to the chippy? I left it at home.
'You could be charging far more for the properties'
in Newbury Park, you know?
Yeah, maybe. I'll have to go through these properly
if Alice ever arrives to look after Scarlet.
It's really unlike her to be late.
That's cos she's sick. Food poisoning, apparently.
But if it's a bug, you don't want her near Scarlet.
Great(!) Well, thank you for letting me know.
You're welcome. It's really nice seeing you again, Daniel.
So, let me take her out for lunch.
-Well, what's the catch?
-There is no catch.
I get to spend two hours with my daughter, you get to work.
It's a beautiful thing.
OK. Two hours, tops.
Hey. You feeling better?
Thanks. Sorry about the other day though.
That's all right. I'm glad you're all recovered -
some of the bugs this lot pass round can be really nasty.
Yeah. I've got loads of great ideas for stuff the kids can do though.
I thought the more creative ones could do
some street art on these big sheets of paper we got last week.
Yeah, that's a brilliant idea.
Look, see if you can get Frankie involved.
He was a bit quiet on Friday. Work your magic.
Leave it to me.
-We just ain't got it right now
but you know you'll get it in the end.
Yeah. I'm doing you a favour by letting you set up at all.
So you've been formally warned of the consequences
of paying your rent late. You've got 24 hours to comply.
'Ere, Fats, do you get one of these if you're late
when you're meeting him for a drink(?)
So this whole warning thing ain't going down so good, no?
It's going swimmingly, Fats(!)
Listen. PHONE RINGS
Hello. Hey, baby!
Yeah, I know, I know. Pete asked me to get to the stall a bit earlier.
Yeah, I know, I know. But, look, let me make it up to you, innit?
How about I come over to yours tonight, no Masoods in our hair
or anything like that. It'll just be, you know, you, me and Mrs B.
What? Really? How late's she going to be?
Yeah. OK. Wicked. Are you going to wear the little...
All right, baby, I'll phone you back in a minute. Yeah?
Hey, hey, hey, Winston, Winston, come on...
Oh, here she is. About time.
I've had a nightmare weekend, as it happens.
Fine, be like that!
You usually love stuff like this.
Has someone here upset you?
Someone at home?
You know, Tiff and Morgan they fall out loads
but they always make up in the end.
You haven't got any brothers and sisters, have you?
Mum says I'm going to have one soon and EVERYTHING will be different.
Your mum's having a baby?
She said she won't have as much time for me and I'll have to help.
-And what did you say?
-That I don't want to.
Frankie, you might change your mind when the baby comes.
And anyway, you'll have someone to do things like this with.
But what if I don't WANT to?
The thing is Frankie...
..your mum's going to have this baby whether you're happy or not.
So you can be mean to her and make things harder...
..or you can be nice and do what she asks you to do.
And I bet you, you will be even more important than you already are.
Look at me, Tiff and Morgan.
Look how we get on and they're loads younger than me.
But Mum hates me now!
She doesn't hate you.
If you say sorry, I bet she'll forgive you.
No matter how hard things seem...
..you've got to stay positive, you've got to make the best of it.
Oh... You all right?
Listen, Kat, I was going to talk to you about, you know...
About the engagement party?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-Old news, already heard.
OK, that's good. And you're not, you know?
Engaged people have engagement parties. I'll survive.
I suppose Roxy's pulling out all the stops?
Tell me about it.
I might have to sell one of my kidneys to pay for it though!
Listen, you're not normally this early. Do you need change?
-Nah, I've come to see Kirsty just for a chat.
-It's her day off, so...
Better get back to your fiancee,
before she tries to hire out the Olympic Stadium as a party venue.
-See you later.
-Yeah. Take care.
It's going to be like two more minutes, guys, sorry.
Do you want a free pickled egg while you wait?
I couldn't find your wallet, sorry. Is it just you?
Yeah. Dad didn't get any cover, did he?
Typical. Well, it'll calm down in an hour or so.
So good luck.
Is there any chance you could give me a hand, could you?
You know I can't.
It's not about Dad, it's about helping me, innit?
He's out all day, he won't even know.
Go on, if you do it, I'll put on this stupid thing.
-What do you think?
OK, deal. But you have to wear that all day.
-Frankie! Frankie, wait!
-Hey, hold up will you, mate?
Where you going, eh? You a friend of Whitney's, are you?
-She's my best friend!
right, is she now?
Listen, mate, you don't want to be going running off like that,
-Frankie, what are you doing out here?
I was going to say sorry to my mum, like you said.
But I didn't mean right now, did I?
You don't ever, ever run off like that again! Do you hear me?
Listen, go back inside.
Talk to your mum later when she picks you up, OK?
-Is he all right?
he's fine now. Do you mind if I take my break?
Yeah, go on. See you in a bit.
Thanks for that.
That's all right. Are you OK, yeah?
Hey. Hi. Did you have a nice time?
We did. We fed the ducks, didn't we?
And then, unfortunately,
we bumped into one of those mums from Scarlet's play group.
She was most unhappy that she wasn't invited to Scarlet's party.
Oh... Yeah, well, thank you for reminding me(!)
I told her you wanted a low-key, no fuss type deal.
Right. I've just got to get on...
I guess they just want to meet you, that's all.
Sadly, Michael, I'm just not into baby yoga and organic baking.
Just the way it is.
Yeah. Neither are they though. You'd be surprised.
Scarlet just likes playing with their kids.
We might be able to pick up where we left off
as soon as Scarlet has a nap.
Or we could do it over a drink after work,
if Michael doesn't mind baby-sitting again?
That's very thoughtful of you, Daniel. What a good idea.
In fact I might take her to that -
It's a classical music for babies concert.
That's settled then.
You could come, I could introduce you.
You could meet them all, 45 minutes. Relatively painless.
Well, we wouldn't want little Scarlet to miss out, would we?
Great. Half five then. I'll see you there. Sorry, Daniel.
How could I stay angry with you, Michael(?)
-Kat, seen Tyler?
-Went off with Fat Boy somewhere.
-Is she ever(?)
-Oh, you've had a row?
-Why, what's she been saying?
-You all right, Whit?
-Yeah. Do you want lunch today?
-I'd love to.
But she's in a bit of a mood, so it's probably not the best thing.
If you've got anything to say, say it to my face, yeah?
Don't start with me, Kat!
You think you're the only one with problems,
but you're not, all right!
What you done this time? You decked someone else?
-You think you're so perfect, don't you?
-(I'm going to go.)
Don't go just because of her! What is your problem today?
You - amongst other things!
OK, all right, yeah. Thank you.
-Ian's going to give us a discount.
-That's brilliant, well done.
-Hooray. Great news. Wonderful. Deep joy(!)
Oh, Michael, what is it with women and occasions?
Everything's got to be done on a grand scale, eh?
Kathleen was never like that.
Always a woman of frugal pleasures, I found.
Yeah, except when it came to arguing. Listen, do me a favour.
Listen, I think Roxy's bridezilla routine is getting to her.
Will you keep an eye on her for me?
No, I don't need to. She'll be cool.
She's got bounce-back ability.
Yeah, we know that's all a front, don't we?
There you go, mate.
-This place rakes it in.
Thought it might be struggling, with McKlunky's doing all those deals.
Yeah, well, a good chippy's all about reputation.
And we have more loyal customers than them.
You know, if you spoke to him, I'm sure he'd ask you back.
You know what he's like, he is all about business.
Besides, there is more to life than VAT returns
and battered haddock.
Shut up, you love it!
No, I don't.
-Yes, you do.
Looks like someone's missed this place.
I knew you'd be back.
She's just a bit touchy! I've got to get to the restaurant.
You do realise you'd have nothing if it wasn't for her.
Your businesses, they would have gone under.
Bobby, he'd be in care if she didn't look after him
and this is how you repay her?
You're going to lose her, Dad, if you don't stop being such a prat.
You're home early.
So are you.
Not needed on the stall then, I gather?
I didn't want to leave Alice alone in her sick bed.
How selfless of you.
Nothing to do with the recently engaged couple from across the way?
I wouldn't want to think my mention of their party
would set you off on one of your...
I'm fine, Michael.
Have a drink with me. We can celebrate being FINE together, yeah?
-YOU about Scarlet...
..and me about Alfie.
This is nice.
..your daddy is dragging us to some awful baby music "experience".
Do you think we need to take our earplugs, eh?
You all right, Whit?
Yeah, it's the onions. They're making me...
Here, let me do it. I'm immune.
So, you had a good day?
Is everyone out still?
Er, yeah, mum's gone to the Vic first to meet Mas
and Liam's took the kids to see a film.
Do you think we should tell Tiff and Morgan about Tony?
-Well, cos, you know, they've got a right to know.
He was a really big part of their lives once.
Ages ago! They don't ask about him, Whit, so why bother?
Yeah, but just cos they don't ask about him,
don't mean they don't think about him. Morgan was...
Whit, I don't want them talking about him, yeah?
I'm sorry, I didn't...
Yeah, all right, just leave it, Whit, yeah?
-You all right?
Why don't you two go out for the night?
You don't want to be stuck in here.
Whatever Whit wants.
What about dinner?
Well, I can do the spag.
It won't be as good as yours, obviously,
but I'm sure the kids will hoover it up.
I'll get out of your hair, then.
Lovely as this has been...
I bet she makes it really big, this party.
It won't just be a few quiet drinks,
she's going to rub my nose right in it.
Why are you letting her get to you like this?
Oh, go, if you're going to go.
So Fats gives him these under-ripe bananas, yeah?
And this geezer, he just kicks right off.
What's up with you?
Nothing. Nothing, it's just a bit weird being in here, innit?
Had a really hard day at work today, an' all.
This kid, he went walkabout...
Oi, garcon! Refill, please.
Do I look like the waiter. I'm the head chef!
And you don't get your staff discount any more.
Does he think he's running The Ritz?!
Maybe we should have gone for a kebab.
I just wanted to treat you.
I'm sorry. Sorry, you was... you was saying?
Yeah, this kid... I might've messed up.
But you know when something's wrong and you think you can fix it?
It's never as simple as that though, is it?
Well, it weren't simple with me and Tony.
Yeah, well, that's, um... that's different.
I thought going to that prison would solve everything but...
..now I know he's dead, I think it's made everything more confusing.
I've got so many questions in my head
and I know they'll never get answered.
What's "canard" when it's at home?
We ain't in France - this should be in English.
I keep wondering, "Why me?"
-Come on, don't do this to yourself.
-Well, I need to know.
Maybe you was unlucky.
"Poulet". That's cheese, innit?
He said I was special. He said he chose me!
-Blokes will say anything to get what they want.
-Is that what you do?
Do not compare me to that geezer, Whitney!
Why are you so obsessed with this anyway?
He's dead - he's gone. Just be happy!
I am! I am.
But I can't wipe everything that he said to me out of my head, you know?
It meant a lot to me at the time. I was young, I didn't know any better.
This ain't normal.
Maybe you shouldn't be working with kids, you're too messed up!
I'm not saying it's your fault...
That's very big of you(!)
Do you know what, Tyler?
If I'm so messed up, you won't want to marry me, will you?
Has he paid?
Oi, you ain't paid for those drinks!
You know what?
I should have barred everyone connected with that family!
You spoken to Lucy yet?
Right, bro, I'm off to go get some sweet, sweet lovin' from my lady.
Come on, bro, it's not that bad, man.
And that's one of the cleaner ones.
So you don't really want to know what happened to the others.
You know, tomorrow's another day. You know, the traders'll come around.
No. No, they won't cos I'm a joke.
So, anyway go, Poppy'll be wondering where you are.
You know what, me and Pops, we can do another night, all right?
She's cool. Anyway, she knows how we roll - mates before dates, OK?
Hey! How's my favourite snuggle-bunny?
Get off me, man. Get off that!
Turn that frown upside down!
I will turn you upside down. Don't...
So, you'll come over now, yeah?
That's Kirsty, she's going to come over.
Didn't hear my phone go.
Maybe it was on silent.
It's good, cos you'll have company,
I have a thing with Janine, so I need to...
Yeah, go on. Run along.
You've got a fake relationship to save!
You need to lose this self pity thing, Kathleen.
-Something like that, yeah.
You don't seem to be fasting. Are you not observing Ramadan this year?
All right, look, you're your own man. I'm not going to judge,
I'm not preaching...
But you're disappointed?
I'm not disappointed.
You know, you think you're the first person to lose faith?
Oh, come on, you'll find it.
Yeah, down the back of the sofa.
You see, the thing about faith is, Tamwar,
you can't just magic it out of thin air.
You have to follow your own path, write your own A-Z, as it were.
No-one uses A-Zs any more, OK? It's called a satnav.
-Stop it, Tam.
Why don't you come inside, I've got this DVD.
It's not an action flick like AJ likes them -
it's full of geeks, I promise.
POP MUSIC PLAYS
You all right? Do you want to talk about it?
Sorry. I'm miles away.
You looked like you had your hands full earlier, with that little kid.
Tyler's right. I shouldn't be working in a place like that.
What, he said that, did he?
I think he's wrong.
Yeah, of course I do.
I see you with little Tiff and Morgan all the time.
You're a natural.
Like that little kid today. You're his best mate, remember?
He did run off. Anything could've happened.
Yeah, but it didn't, did it, eh?
Do you want another drink or what?
You looking after me?
Looking after you is Tyler's job, innit?
Me and Tyler are history.
W-Whoa, what are you doing?
Look, I'm not going to get in between you and Tyler again.
I just told you, I'm a free agent.
Skip work, make an excuse...
It's now or never...
Yeah. Yeah, I'll...
You know what, Whitney, you should get yourself home,
before you do something you regret.
Look, babe, wait, wait, wait... Whit, look...
Look, it ain't that I don't want to, is it?
I'm not some naive kid, all right? Not any more.
-I know what I'm doing.
-Yeah, I know.
Let's go back to your place.
-Well, I'll see you then.
-See you then. Take care.
I know, I know, I know. Sorry, I got waylaid.
I'll be there next week, yeah?
Believe it or not, I am capable of
a little bit of parental-bonding without you.
Dull as most of their conversation is.
Some of them were actually OK. I managed to arrange
a play date with Angela and her darling little daughter!
You'd have been very proud.
You all right, Whit?
Did you have a nice time with Tyler last night?
There is no me and Ty.
That's a bit over the top, innit?
So what did you do? Spend the whole night rowing or something?
I weren't even with him.
Tyler, you seen Bianca?
Yeah, she was around before.
I said I'd mind the stall for five.
You call this minding my stall? Cheers.
Oh, Luce, Luce...
Have you got anything planned for this afternoon?
What's it to you?
-Thought you could help Marie out in the cafe?
Well, it's Carol's day off and I've got to be at the restaurant.
And I thought you could run it like you used to.
I promise, I won't interfere or nothing.
Come on, it's not like you've got anything else planned, is it?
What are you grinning at?
Joey?! What do you mean?
It just happened.
It just happened? So what, was you drunk or something?
No, I wasn't drunk, all right. I knew what I was doing.
-You don't even seem bothered, Whit.
-I thought you loved Ty.
You're supposed to be saving up for a wedding.
Yeah. Flowers and confetti. Me dressed in white. What a joke.
-What are you talking about now?
-What's done is done, innit?
I might as well tell him.
Whit, just come back down here.
Just leave it for a minute.
So much clutter. I don't need half this stuff.
You all right, Ollie? Here, Jean, Jean, Jean. Ollie's here.
Oh, Ollie. What a nice surprise.
I know you're usually supposed to bring flowers but...
Here's a nice bit of rhubarb instead.
Oh, that's...that's lovely.
Thank you. I'll...I'll make a crumble.
-Oh, here you are. Let me...
-No, no, got them.
-I hope the old swingball didn't put you off or anything.
Well, I haven't seen you up the allotment all week.
No, don't be silly. That was the best fun I've had for ages.
Good. Up for it again then?
Yeah. No, you're all right. I tell you what,
-why don't I take you out for a nice meal tonight instead?
It'll be a surprise.
Yes. Thank you. That would be lovely.
Great. Pick you up about 6.00?
Take care, Ollie, mate. All the best.
Hey, Jean! He's a little bit keen, isn't he.
Too close for comfort.
SINGING: # Love is in the air, everywhere I look around...
Stop it, Alfie.
# Love is in the air, every sight and every sound... #
Alfie, I mean it! What if he'd seen these?
What are you talking about, you silly cow?
He doesn't know. I like him, Alfie.
I don't want to scare him off.
No, I know.
So what happened, Whit?
I mean, was it a one-off?
There's nothing going on, is there, between you and Joey?
No, of course not.
So, why did you do it then?
Listen, you do know if you tell Tyler,
there'll be no going back, don't you, eh?
Why did he have to send that letter?
Tony's dead, Whit!
All that matters now is you and Tyler.
Don't throw that away because of one stupid mistake.
I slept with Joey. I can't pretend that never happened.
Yes, you can. You can. And that is exactly what you are going to do.
Trust me, Whitney. We've been here before, remember.
The kiss with Joey.
I told you not to tell Tyler then but you just ignored me.
-This is different.
-I was right then and I'm right now.
Tyler worships the ground that you walk on.
This is a chance for you, Whit, to build something good together.
To make something of your life.
Look at me, running around all the time trying to sort
everything on my own.
It's hard, Whit. I don't want that for you.
What about Joey?
I'll talk to him. It'll be all right.
ALICE: Have you heard any more about the salon?
I'm trying not to think about it, to be honest.
-I might be out of a job soon.
-I'm sure it won't come to that.
-I'll get it.
FATS: Hello, Alice. All right, babe?
Hello, baby, how is my favourite popsicle, huh? Come here.
So. Nice night with Tamwar?
Look, about last night, all right.
I mean, firstly, you know Tamwar was really down.
And...and secondly, you know I'm going to make it up to you, right?
So look, whatever you fancy, yeah? Pub? Club?
Restaurant of your choice? Whatever you feel, my sweet?
You know what, I really fancy a quiet night in, you know.
Pizza. DVD and that.
Yeah? OK. Well that sounds good.
That sounds like a great Wednesday evening.
Wednesday? What about tonight?
Erm, tonight I'm cooking for the boys.
-You know, Tam, AJ and Mas.
Yeah, you know, I got to pull my weight, babe.
You're all heart, Fats.
Yeah, so listen, I can see that you're eating...
You two are doing the...so I'm going to check you later.
Can I say, you are looking so hot like fire in that dress.
Oh, my goodness!
What if Joey don't listen?
He will. I'll sort it. I promise.
Right, I got to go. I left Peter watching the stall.
Everything sorted then? She cheats on him, lies about it, and they live happily ever after?
So what's she meant to do?
Tell him she slept with Joey and screw her life up?
I don't know. Maybe she's not as happy with Tyler as you think.
-Of course she is.
-What makes you so sure?
-He's a nice boy.
He's a decent bloke and he treats her right.
-What have you got against Tyler?
-Nothing. I like Tyler.
But maybe you should give her some breathing space.
Let her make up her own mind.
No, her head's a mess. You've seen what she's like since...
Since when? Since Tony resurfaced.
-I've got to go.
-And what about your head?
Remember you're picking the kids up later.
You've got to let go of the past as well.
Wrapping Whitney up in cotton wool isn't going to deal with it.
I just want her to forgive me.
Yeah well, give it time, darling. A lot of time.
Peter reckons I should beg and grovel.
No, no, don't do that, Ian. Not a good look on any man, is it.
I didn't mean to hurt her like this.
I mean, that girl means the world to me.
I couldn't be prouder of her after everything she's done for me.
But I needed to regain control of my life.
I just think you should tell her that, you know.
Straight from the heart. It can't get any worse, can it, Ian?
Oi. I'm supposed to be at the wholesalers, you know.
Kat, not now, I'm not in the mood, all right.
Do you think you're the only one with problems?
The whole world don't revolve around you, Bianca Butcher.
Oi, cloth ears, can you hear me?
Shut your mouth, all right!
Where are you going now? I'm serious! Are you having a laugh?!
Bianca, how's Whitney?
Yeah, she's fine.
Why is she...why is she so hung up on this scumbag Tony?
After what he'd done to her, she should be glad he's dead.
Listen, Ty, try to be a bit more understanding, yeah?
Whit needs you right now.
Joey. So, what was she - Whitney?
Another one of your little conquests, was she?
Look, I don't know what she's told you, all right,
but Whitney came on to me.
I'm not interested in that. You know she's still with Tyler?
I'm not having you messing it up.
Tyler's the best thing that's happened to her.
-She told me they weren't together.
Why would she say they weren't?
It don't matter about that. I'm just worried Tyler's going to find out.
I'm not going to tell him, am I?
So you won't say nothing? Can I have your word, please?
-Can you swear to me, please, Joey.
-Yeah, fine, you've got my word.
Hey. I just wondered if you'd thought any more about the offer
I made you last week?
-I've seen Joey. He said he won't say nothing.
He swore to me, Whit. I believe him.
I told you, you've got nothing to worry about.
I'll see you after.
Come on, you lot. Who wants to play a game?
Will you give me a break! I'm not even supposed to be here.
Again, that's not really the point.
You are here and you still haven't paid.
Bianca, if you can't be bothered, just say so.
Sorry, Kat, I had a bit of a bad morning, actually.
Right. This is meant to be a partnership.
-Well, I'm here now.
-I'm sick and tired of carrying you.
I dread coming in and having to look at your miserable mug every day.
-Do you know that?
-And you think I enjoy listening to your flannel?
-I put up with it because I have to.
-Can I get the pitch fee?
The worst thing I ever done was listening to you.
"Let's set up on the market. Let's make a killing. Blah, blah, blah."
We aren't exactly rolling in it. We can hardly break even.
-Pay me tomorrow.
-If that's the way we feel, why are we here?
I don't know, I ask myself that question every day.
Right, let's pack it in then, yeah?
What are you doing?
We're done! For good. So you can go whistle for your money.
The Jungle Book.
Planet Of The Apes. Um...
Yes. Brilliant. Well done. Your turn.
Here, Peroxide! Rox, we've got a delivery down here, darling.
You all right? Heard the latest news?
-Our Jean has got herself another date.
No...Brad Pitt. You're a bit early, aren't you?
Yeah, I've had a massive row with B, and the business is finished.
I hear you got another date. It's getting serious then?
-Oh, I doubt it.
I don't want to build my hopes up, that's all.
Where's this come from?
It's obvious, isn't it? He's a respectable copper.
I'm hardly a law-abiding citizen.
What if he asks me about my past and if I've got any family?
I go, well yes, actually, I've got a son who's gone AWOL
and who knows what trouble he's in, and my youngest, Stacey,
is on the run for murder, taking my grandchild with her.
And then there's everything else.
I mean, how do you tell someone, I really, really like you,
but just so you know, sometimes I feel so low
that nothing or no-one can get me out of it.
But not to worry, cos other times I feel like swinging from chandeliers.
-Actually, she has got a point.
-Shut up, Alfie.
-No. That's not what I meant.
-Jean, you've got to stop this,
and get all this rubbish out of your head.
Listen, Jean, Kat's right. Your date last week went well, yes?
-There you go.
Yes, but I really think that I need to lay all my cards on the table.
Or at least one of them.
-Just do what you think is right. You deserve to be happy.
Yes, yes, yes, I hope this is what I think it is.
What you got?
I got that and I got that.
What's she like? I'd have got that half price down the market.
Still tight as ever, eh, Alfie.
So, the usual?
-Yeah. Large one, please.
I just want you to know how sorry I am.
KIDS CONTINUE TO PLAY GAME
No. I can't talk about it. Not here.
Meet me for a drink later.
Ah, and I thought romance was dead.
Look, a couple of drinks. That's all I'm asking.
You've got a good catch there.
So, the business with the stall.
-You and B are still mates though, yeah?
It's not your problem, anyway. You've got a party to organise.
Happy Hour? 7.00 till 8.00.
-Our engagement party. Tomorrow night.
Or how about we just put a couple of crates behind the bar
and when it's gone, it's gone?
I'm promising to love you for all eternity.
OK, all right, happy hour it is then.
-Come on, come and look.
Should be a good party, that.
Before you ask, I will be your plus-one tomorrow.
How did you know I was going to ask?
You just don't seem the type to give up.
ALFIE AND ROXY LAUGH
I heard Fat Boy's moved in.
Listen, Tamwar, don't take this the wrong way or anything,
but I think maybe you should give Poppy and Fat Boy some space.
Sorry, this is the one place that I can come
and not get hassled by the market traders, and then you just
walked in here and you told me to give Fat Boy and Poppy some space.
I think you should just maybe trust me on this one.
If you care about Fat Boy as your friend,
just think about what I've said, that's all.
-What do you fancy? Red or white?
-You ought to get your eyes checked.
-You might need glasses.
Yes, you're probably right.
-Bottle of house red, please.
-Certainly. I'll get somebody to come
and take your food order in a moment. Jean, how are you?
Yes. You? Fine.
Try not to break anything.
-Eh? What was all that about?
No later than usual. Why?
I saw you leaving Joey's. Talk about surprises.
Lucy, it was a mistake, OK. You won't say nothing, will you?
I really don't need this hanging over me right now.
I really thought you were better than this.
And I just hope Tyler knows who he's marrying.
Yeah, of course I can meet you.
No, no, course it's not a problem.
All right, I'll see you there in a bit. Oh, Lucy...
Thanks for calling.
She wants to meet me for a drink.
-Good. That's a start, innit.
-I hope I don't say the wrong thing.
Hey! Darling, you'll be fine. It's from the heart, remember.
Best thing I did was take on that allotment.
Gives me the chance to get back to basics. Chill out.
They say that gardening's good for your health, don't they?
Well, it stands to reason, don't it. Keeps you fit. Supple.
Not just physical health...but, um...
Well, I read somewhere that it's good for all sorts of things like
stress and mental wellbeing.
You don't agree?
No, no, it's not that.
It's just that, the bloke who had the allotment before you,
last year, his wife left him. Took it badly. Went a bit loopy.
Ended up being carted off to the funny farm.
Didn't do so much for his mental wellbeing, did it?
DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES
What's going on, son?
Do you know what, this recipe looks a little bit complicated.
I don't even know what half of these things are.
I mean, what is molass-ee-i?
Do I look like Gordon Ramsay?
(LAUGHING) No, no, all right.
You know what, why don't we go down to McKlunky's, get a few bits.
You know, on me, man.
Or you could go and see Poppy.
See if she fancies doing anything. It's been two nights.
She might think you're losing interest.
I mean... Why, has she said something?
So wait...hold tight, hold tight a minute. So what?
You are actually giving me relationship advice? Oh, my life!
-You winding me up, or what?
-I'm just telling you as a mate.
You know you said you were good at reading people.
Well, there's something you don't know about me.
Well, I should hope so, it's only our second date.
It's something that I have to live with from one day to the next.
And I completely and honestly understand
if you want to run a mile.
Well, go on. Try me.
W-w-well, the thing is...
I broke the law. In this restaurant. There were three of us.
We came back after hours.
What, breaking and entering?
No, I had a key. We're not thieves.
Not that I want to sugar-coat anything.
But some things got broken.
That's the owner. Ian Beale.
And they...we...wanted to teach him a lesson, I suppose.
He can be a conniving bully. But that's no excuse.
I let it happen and I shouldn't have.
You know, I think I best be going.
Just a second. Does Ian know you were involved?
Oh, yes. I told him. I felt terrible.
And did he press charges?
No. Luckily not.
You know I have to take you in, don't you?
Not really. Only joking.
He didn't press charges, so forget about it.
You don't think badly of me?
Well, maybe just a little bit.
Excuse me. There you go.
A complimentary drink, on the house.
Jean, would you like to do some shifts in the restaurant again?
Are you trying to be funny?
Let's just say I'm in a good mood, yeah?
I thought we could try and put the past behind us.
And you're a really good chef. Have a think about it.
Did that just happen?
-Maybe he's not as angry as you think.
-After all I did?
Listen, you are a gentle, warm-hearted, woman.
And I wouldn't be anywhere else in the world right now.
SHE SIGHS HAPPILY
SHE CLEARS THROAT
I just spoke to Poppy. Fat Boy's going round with pizza.
-You said something, didn't you?
Yeah. But it stopped me from having to go to McKlunky's.
-Do you mind if I join you?
-Free country, yeah.
TYLER: Maybe we could get away. Nothing expensive.
Just a couple of days in a B&B or something.
-Might do you good.
Out of sight, out of mind then, yeah?
Look, he can't hurt you no more, Whit. That's all that matters.
-Here we go.
-Well, it feels like you're not even trying.
You all right?
Ty, get us a lemonade, will you, please.
-I think I'm going to end it.
-It'll be a whole lot easier.
Don't be silly. After everything we talked about?
Ty is the best thing in your life.
Look, just listen to me, I'm begging you.
This isn't about today or tomorrow. This is about the rest of your life.
I don't want you throwing it away just on a whim, all right? Don't.
Falling for me already?
What if I am?
I'm glad you came round.
-All this petty bickering is getting us nowhere.
Just hear me out, OK?
I know you think I've been mean and selfish.
Try...heartless, self-centred, greedy.
OK, you've made your point.
Lucy, I know I didn't go about things the right way, all right?
And from the bottom of my heart, I am truly sorry.
I also want you to know that I love you to bits.
I've got nothing but respect for what you did, OK?
I'm really lucky, I've got an amazing, brilliant daughter.
I mean, without you I would've lost everything.
You kept this family together
and for that, I'll be grateful for the rest of my life.
Doesn't undo what you did.
I know, but I'm trying. I mean, what do you want me to do?
Beg for forgiveness?
I'll get down on me knees and beg if you want.
What do you want?
Oh, she hasn't told you? Well, it's exciting.
Lucy's coming to work for me. I'll go and get the drinks in, shall I?
I really feel like this might be a champagne moment.
You can't be serious?
-No, I've got to get back. My mum's got the kids. Thanks.
So are you going to be all right now, yeah?
Oh, yeah. We'll be fine. Go on. Go and see the kids.
All right. Hang in there, yeah? See you later.
-See you later.
-See you later, Ty.
Look, I can't stand seeing you like this.
Just tell me what to do.
Well then, maybe you need to get help, OK.
See someone who's qualified.
-What, like a shrink?
-I'll come with you.
-And hold my hand?
Look, I'm trying here. You're not giving me a lot back.
This isn't something most geezers have to deal with, is it?
Poor Tyler, how does he cope?
-Obviously, I didn't mean it like that.
-You don't get it, do you?
Where are you...?
I'm sorry, all right, I'm sorry.
It's just...I'm not sure I know how to deal with this any more.
-Well, then, don't.
-Well, don't. Nobody's stopping you.
-Why are you saying that?
Because you don't need this.
And I don't...I don't need this on top of everything. The guilt.
Just reminds me of how disgusting I am.
What are you talking about?
I slept with Joey last night.
I couldn't stand lying to him.
You should've thought about that before you slept with someone else!
He'd have found out.
You don't know that. Joey would have kept quiet...
I couldn't lie!
I really don't deserve him.
I think that's up to him to decide, don't you?
I don't deserve anyone.
Do you love Tyler, Whit?
Do you want him?
Well, then get your war paint on.
Get him round here and fight for him.
Right, talk about broadcasting it then!
What? No, me and Ollie. Broadcasting?
I'm talking about the way you're smiling now, it's fine.
This for your party? It's going to look lovely.
Yeah, yeah. Go on up.
It's like father, like son, ain't it? Joey and Derek.
Oh, stop right there. No. Tyler, this is very different.
-How is it different?
-Because you and Whit...
No, my fiancee SLEEPING with someone else?
OK, I get it, I get it.
Now, if this is the first time this has happened -
you've got to ask yourself "Is she going to do it again?"
-And it's that simple?
-Yes, it is that simple...
< Then you find out why she did it in the first place, all right?
< Listen Tyler, if this is a one-off...
< Then there's hope.
< You can forgive her, if - and I mean if - it's a one-off.
< You know, if you love her...
I mean, really love her.
Then you swallow your pride...
..and you try and make it work.
Come on, darling Here he is. Here's Daddy.
Tommy! What have I got? What have I got?
Yeah. You're a good boy. What have I got in my pocket?
Have I got some sweets? Yeah, where's my kiss?
All right? What, you working here now?
Yeah. Bit of management. Bit of business development.
Well, I only came in for the R&R keys.
I've locked mine in downstairs.
Will you tell Janine I've got a delivery, yeah?
Morning? I think you're in my seat.
Oh, I was - Joey was just...
Right, first thing I want to do is go over the property portfolio.
I was thinking last night, and I came up with some ideas.
You see, when I ran my businesses...
Yeah, all in good time. If you could just - I hate filing!
See you later.
I know, I know, all a little bit over the top, ain't it?
Oh, it's going to look lovely in here.
Thank you, Kat.
I just said to Tracey, I'm looking forward to it.
I am. I've got the day off now the stall's closed.
So I'm going to go home and get ready for it.
It's a shame about you and Bianca.
Yeah, I wish you two would just...
That's life, Jean. Every cloud and all that.
Listen, Kat - about tonight. You know, you don't have to come.
Oh, I want to.
I've got a date.
Thanks for coming.
Do you want tea?
I wanted to marry you.
Well, we still can.
You're the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Better than anything. You know that.
This is how you show it?
Was it a one-off?
Yeah, course it was.
And will it happen again?
No, it won't happen again.
Never. Ever. I promise.
I love you, Tyler.
I love you.
And you've got to...
So, WHY did you do it?
If I knew why...
..then I'd tell you.
But I don't.
So I can't.
HE LOUDLY INHALES AND EXHALES
DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES
With regards to the other day...
When you were late.
I had to go and see Kat.
Your other baby mother. How lovely(!)
Alfie was concerned about her, so you know, I figured it was the right thing to do.
Right, so you demand five minutes of my time
-because poor little Alfie was concerned about poor little Kat?
-No, you're not listening.
I'm telling you that was the reason I was tardy.
So I'm... apologising.
Can we look at some of my ideas soon?
Ooh, I was just about to call you over.
Oh good, well, I was thinking about the restaurant and...
Hold that thought.
Was there anything else, Michael?
There was, yeah. I thought we could, er...
Me and you?
No. The three of us. Like a family, you know.
Like a little, broken family?
Like grown ups. Like adults.
You wanted five minutes, Michael. Your time's up.
HE CLEARS THROAT
No playscheme today?
..could you call me?
-I'm not sure my phone's working properly.
I don't want to miss any calls. If there are any calls.
Not that there will be, probably, but you know, if there were.
From anyone. Ollie, for instance.
Has something happened?
Jean Slater, you little minx!
I think I scared him off.
What did you do to him?
No, no - not like that!
Did you... You didn't tell him? About...?
No, no, no, no what I mean is that when you...
sleep with someone...
..everything changes, doesn't it?
III was talking about me. I didn't mean you...oh!
Play it cool.
He'll phone you.
Hello, Ollie! It's Jean.
I just wanted to leave a message, really. Say "hello".
She just doesn't understand.
Have you tried telling her?
Well, what about your father?
He thinks I'm "Punching way beneath my weight."
That's not very nice, is it?
We just want somewhere we can be together.
Tell me you haven't forgotten what that feels like?
-Ugh, not my brother!
Don't think I even thought about boys at their age.
Right, now your placement's over - we should talk about a proper job.
Talk to me, Whitney.
It's nothing. I'm fine.
Do you want to tell me about that nothing?
I can't come here any more.
Look, let's go in my office?
CLOCK TICKS LOUDLY
I told Tyler.
Whit, I wouldn't have said anything.
I've messed up.
I've really messed up everything.
That's just what I do, innit. So...
Er, three coffees to go.
Sorry? Didn't quite hear that?
Three coffees to go.
So, she's got you doing her skivvying, has she?
I offered to get them.
I bet she didn't even say "please."
Can I just get the coffees?
And a receipt.
Drinking alone. You're slipping.
Huh. Except I ain't, am I?
Think your luck's in.
I ain't that desperate.
I'm meeting Kat.
What? At her ex's engagement. Hmmm. Classy.
Being silly, aren't I?
But that's what love does to you. Not that this is love.
But it could be. One day.
I really like him.
You deserve it.
Do I? Yeah, you're right.
He'll think I'm a stalker.
He's a guy.
And guys play games. Ignore him.
He'll come running.
Someone on a promise?
Looking very handsome.
You don't scrub up too bad yourself.
Oi, no, you don't.
It's not going to clear itself up.
Then you're going to have to find a cloth.
You know, I looked up to you.
I thought I was going to be your apprentice.
-I thought you actually cared about my ideas.
-I said to you all in good time.
You want someone to fetch your coffee you're going to have to find someone else, cos I quit.
Lucy, I have been at the bottom, all right?
And, fetching coffee is actually quite nice.
I just want to learn.
Telling your boss where to go on her first day of work.
Well, some people would think that that was reckless.
I kind of like it.
She's cheated on me. You've been there. You know how it works.
Yeah, but I ain't been where Whit's been.
Look, she makes out as if everything's all right, but it ain't.
I dunno what's going on in Whit's head.
I do know she's hurting.
KAT LAUGHS LOUDLY
Look, she said she tried to talk to you but you walked out the door.
I dunno what she wants from me.
Then ask her. Listen, Ty, you're the only boy that's never walked all over her,
but at the same time you don't let her get away with nothing. You keep her feet on the ground
and that is exactly what she needs right now.
Going for it a bit, aren't we?
I'm on a date.
With a gorgeous, sexy, hot man.
Thought you was with me.
SHE LAUGHS LOUDLY
On the house, yeah, Essex?
All right, mate?
Joey - stop!
That's enough. Oi, you!
-He started it.
And I ain't finished it.
You heard the man. Out.
That's enough! That does not happen in my pub. Understand, Tyler?
Stop. Stop. All right? You're bigger than this. No more.
Whitney. Everybody, there's nothing to see. We're having a party, OK?
This ain't about Joey.
You can't just fight your way out of this.
Come home. I'll clean you up.
Why don't you two just go home and I'll get Tiff.
Take her out for a bit, yeah?
Tiff ain't there.
What? Didn't you bring her home from playscheme!
Morgan's gone to a sleepover.
-I ain't been at playscheme.
-What do you mean...?
All right, look, you two just go. I'll go and get her.
Patrick - you haven't seen Ollie, have you? Runner bean man.
Talks a lot.
No, no, no, he hasn't been here all day.
No? Oh. Never mind. Not a problem.
Not a problem. At all.
Is there something between the both of you?
SHE CHUCKLES Yeah. Maybe. I don't know.
There was a something between us.
Then there was a something more.
Now I don't know if there's a something at all.
Have you tried his house, then? Hmm?
Oh, of course. His house.
Where is his house?
I just wanted to have a word about Whitney.
Yeah, she was meant to bring Tiff home with her...
Look, I offered her a job and she said she didn't want it.
I'm really worried about her.
Yeah, that'll just be boy stuff. She'll be in tomorrow.
Has somebody else took Tiffany home?
Tiffany's not been at the playscheme.
She said money was a bit tight.
What, and you didn't think to tell me that?
I thought you told her to tell me!
Plus Whitney didn't say anything about her not being in.
Like I said. She's been distracted. I'm worried about her.
All right. I've got to go and find Tiffany.
It's nearly six o'clock! We are going to get in so much trouble!
One more level?
One more level.
Patrick! Well, why didn't you phone me earlier?
Oh, are they? Right, well, keep them there, yeah?
Yeah. OK, bye.
You haven't seen Bobby, have you?
Well, he's not welcome at mine, is he?
He ain't going to be with Tiff.
You should to keep a better eye on your kids, Ian.
I think the phrase is "pot kettle".
I had so many things I wanted to say to him.
I told you. I'm listening.
Things I've probably wanted to say to him for years.
About how he made me feel then.
How he made me feel now.
You know, I think about him all the time.
Some days I hardly think of nothing else.
Can't we just go and watch the telly?
And I hated him.
But he got me.
Like no-one else, he just got me.
Just cuddle up on the sofa?
And then I get that letter, having him say he loved me again...
Look, Whit. I've tried. I have REALLY tried.
And I just don't get it.
I don't understand why you still talk about it.
Why you still feel all this stuff.
Every time I think about you two, it makes me feel sick!
I don't get it either.
But it's me, isn't it?
It's part of me.
If you don't get that...
..if you can't get that...
..I'm just going to carry on hurting you.
You and me...
..we've got to end.
I love you, Whit.
I love you too.
Patrick said we could...
Well, Patrick is not your mum, is he? I thought someone had...
Patrick, get him home to Ian now.
And if you ever see these two together again, you tell me.
Get home! Don't you ever do anything like that ever again.
Do you hear me?
You win some, you lose some.
Plenty more fish in the sea.
-It's about time someone made an honest woman of you!
-I'll pay you later. For taking her off my hands.
but I should be paying you for the privilege!
-Excuse me, hello, he doesn't actually own me.
And for your engagement present - I'll let you off a month's rent, yeah.
-Ah, thanks Phil!
Happy engagement. What a lovely couple you make.
Though, quite why anyone wants to...
-Yeah, all right. Thank you, Michael.
-- Thank you, Michael.
But, well done, anyway.
Janine and Daniel.
Twice in one day.
Your little girlfriend seems quite taken.
Oh. We laughed and laughed. How grown up.
Thought I'd trade in the old model for a new one.
Trading up, more like.
The old one's got too much mileage on it now.
-Oh Kat, will you keep it down?
-She's having fun.
Yes, you should try it.
-I'm having an amazing time.
Got your ring yet?
We're doing it later.
I bet it's gorgeous.
Alfie never holds back when it comes to buying big sparklers.
Oh, Kat we don't want to keep you from your new boyfriend, do we?
-No hurry. She's got me all night.
-He loves splashing the cash...
-You don't want to let another one slip away, do you.
-..just to show his love.
-Yeah, that will do nicely...
-I'm dealing with it, Alfie.
No, listen, there's nothing to deal with, right.
You sort of know when things aren't feeling right.
I mean, it was fun. You know, whilst it lasted.
I got your message.
Did you? It was nothing.
Just being silly.
Just need a wee.
Your message was lovely.
Just like last night, eh?
I've been at my daughter's all day, smiling my head off.
Oh, you were at your daughter's!
She accused me of being on drugs!
Why would she do that?
Let's put it this way -
last night you made an old man very happy.
You're not old!
Maybe not. But I AM very happy.
Love hurts, don't it?
Get in and go straight up to your room.
You're having no dinner.
She won't let me see Bobby. Tell her to let me!
If Bianca says she don't want you to...
You get to see who you want to. It ain't fair.
I thought I told you to go straight upstairs.
-Whitney thinks you're wrong.
-Whitney ain't too clever when it comes to relationships!
-I never said nothing!
-Go upstairs, brush your teeth. And run yourself a bath.
-I will not say it again, Tiffany!
You have broke that boy's heart, you know that?
Your sister goes missing and you didn't even notice!
You've chucked in the chance of a proper job. What is it with you, Whitney?
Everything good in your life, you just...
TV IN BACKGROUND
Want a hand?
No, it's fine, it's fine.
Listen, you know this is Roxy's night.
Kat, I know that you were hoping...
Well, I'm not, am I?
Come on. You know, finding the eyelash
to make a wish...
I was winding you up! I'm here with someone else.
I told you, you're not the only one who can move on.
OK, good, well, I hope you know what you're doing, all right.
Why? You jealous?
This is your big engagement party, with the woman that you're
happy to marry, and you're jealous because I'm here with another man!
No, it's cos you're playing with fire.
He's going to get inside your head and drag you down
and I just don't want to see you go there again, OK.
You was jealous the other week, and you're jealous tonight.
You just can't stand to see me with someone else.
No. I know you, all right, Kat.
I told you, didn't I?
You will never love her the way you love me.
Take your filthy hands off me. This is what you do, isn't it?
This is what you always do.
You drag on the leopard print, put on the pulling earrings...
How dare you!
Pull anything that's wearing trousers - what, to make yourself feel better, Kat.
You know what you are, sweetheart? You're beyond help, darling. You're a lost cause. And you...
you will never, ever change. You understand me?
Kat, that's... Kat, please...
Everybody, if I could have your attention please, for one moment. Thank you.
Pass me a bucket, someone, will you...
Now listen, I know I've gone off-piste slightly
and this is not the one you chose but, erm...
-I love it.
I love it.
Roxanne Mitchell. Will you marry me?
You don't even need to ask.
Here we go, everybody. Everyone - to my gorgeous fiancee!
ALL: To Roxy and Alfie!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Yeah, and make sure you rinse your hair properly!
I tell you what,
if that kid every tries to pull a stunt like that again...
Whit, what are you doing?
Where do you think you're going, Whit?
I'm going out that door and I'm not coming back.
Don't be silly, there's really no need for that.
-Just come in, sit down and put your bag down.
I'm not mucking about, Whit.
-I got Tiff upstairs in a right state.
-And why's that?
-It's nothing to do with me, I can tell you that.
-What are you saying?
I'm not saying nothing. I'm keeping my lips sealed from now on.
I don't want to talk to you. I don't want to look at you. I want to go out that door...
You're not going anywhere until we have talked this through.
-What you doing?
-Just sit down.
-Give me my bag.
What are you going to do? What, are you going to pop over to Lucy?
Or pop over and see Joey, are you? Or just sulk for a half hour?
-You don't think I'll go?
-I think you're being a brat.
-I don't need my bag.
Let's just stop this. Let's just stop, all right?
-I'm sorry if I've snapped at you.
-You snapped at me?
-You think that is what this is about?
-I don't know, Whit. I don't know.
I haven't got the faintest idea what is going on in your head
-cos you won't tell me!
-Because I want out.
I want out, OK, I want out.
-I don't want nothing to do with you, all of it. Everything.
Because I can't stand it.
I can't stand being around people who've got no idea.
No idea about what?
Do I have to spell it out to you?
All right, Whit, you know I understand.
Yeah, but do you? Do you really?
Yes, I do, because I was here too, remember?
Yeah, you were here. You were here, but where were you?
You were downstairs, you were watching telly,
you were making tea, you were snoring in your bed...
while Tony came in.
He came into my room and he paid me his little visits.
Listen to me, listen.
He is gone now, all right? He's gone.
We have dealt with that and you are better now.
Oh, I'm better? I'm better, am I? Look at me, do I look better to you?
He's dead, all right, Whit? He's dead.
He's just a horrible little pervert that has gone and topped himself
and good riddance, all right - that's what I say.
You don't understand. See? You never understand.
That is not true, Whitney.
Look at you, you can hardly look at me.
-Every time I mention his name, you look down at the floor.
-All right, I do.
-I do, cos I find this really difficult.
Yeah, you're guilty. You know you are, you know this is your fault.
-I didn't bring him here, did I? You brought him here
-and you let this happen to me.
-That is NOT right. I had no idea...
You're meant to be able to come home,
shut the front door behind you and feel safe.
Now, I ain't felt that.
I ain't felt that, not since I was 12 years old.
Whitney, this is not my fault, OK? I didn't know.
Whitney, please, please...
Please don't let him do this to us.
He's dead, he's gone - it's over.
You don't understand, you don't.
Tony understood me though.
He knew everything about me, he knew exactly what I liked.
I didn't have to pretend with him.
What are you talking about?
You don't understand, you don't.
I'm messed up, I'm messed up, I'm a horrible person.
I shouldn't even be around normal people.
I shouldn't be around anyone.
Tiffany, go up to your room.
-Go to your room, now.
He can't handle it, can he?
Me getting attention from another bloke.
Cos he knows what they're getting.
What he's missing out on.
-Is that right?
Hard act to follow, me.
-You ain't exactly shy.
-Never have been.
Do you like the way I look? Hm?
Do you think I'm desirable?
What about my lipstick?
Do you think it's too much?
And my earrings? Do you like them? Do you think I look nice in them?
I ain't looking at your earrings.
Well, go on.
What you waiting for?
This isn't exactly my style.
Some...side alley by a pub.
No, it's tacky.
-Maybe you should go home?
Why do you say that?
Cos I'm trash?
Sleep it off.
I'll buy you a coffee in the morning.
What's wrong with me?
What you walking away for?
-I'm not letting you go, Whit.
I am NOT letting you go anywhere.
What you going to do, eh? Just leave Tiff in the house on her own?
You've left that door wide open.
That about just sums you up though, doesn't it, eh?
Leaving the door wide open for anyone to walk in.
-Just leave me alone, OK.
I don't need you.
I don't need anyone.
-She's gone, ain't she? She's gone, she's leaving.
She just won't listen to me.
What, you had a row?
It's Tony, he's dead - he's killed himself.
But she just can't cope.
And I can't cope. She's leaving and I've lost her!
Well, go after her.
I can't, because I've left Tiff in there on her own.
You go and be with Tiff... and I'll find Whit, yeah?
-Will you bring her back?
Will you promise you'll bring her back
-and just don't take no for an answer?
-OK, I will.
Kat, you don't understand.
You don't understand what she's capable of, all right?
After Tony, there was this horrible bloke called Rob
and he just made her... He made her do things.
Look, I'm going to get her. I promise, yeah?
INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS AND MUSIC
You see that? Some yob's just thrown beer all over my window.
Mindless thuggery, that's the curse of today.
Have you seen Whitney?
I tell you what, she is the sort of person I'm talking about.
I had to sack her from Scarlett's - she's totally hopeless.
-What should I expect with a mother like Bianca?
-Have you seen her?
-Yeah, she sloped past a little while ago.
-Which way did she go?
And you sent Kat after her?
I've got Tiff upstairs, what was I supposed to do?
-Just leave her on her own?
-You deal with Tiff, I'll go after Whitney.
That's just going to make things worse.
How's it going to make things worse? She's run off.
-She's not going to listen to you, is she?
And she'll listen to Kat?
I wouldn't trust Kat Slater to save my life.
-What you doing?
What's it got to do with you?
Look, I just seen your mum.
Yeah? She send you after me, did she?
No, listen, she's upset, yeah?
But she's looking after Tiff.
She's in a right state.
There's no need to be. I can take care of myself.
How? You've got no money, no clothes, where you going to stay?
-Something will turn up.
-No, you're coming home with me.
-Kat, get your hands off me, all right?
-I'm not messing about here.
-You got a problem, darling?
-She's fine. Come on.
No, I have got a problem actually. You got room for a little one?
-Yeah, sure. Hop in.
-Hang on, what are you doing?
I'm going to find a bed for the night.
No, come on!
We'll take care of her, won't we, lads? We're going to a party.
Oh, they're going to a party - I love parties.
I'm a proper party girl.
You're not coming to a party, you're coming home with me.
-Get in, love.
-Go on, budge over.
-She don't want to go with you.
Oh, do me a favour. Come here.
-Get off me, Kat.
-Who do you think you are?
-What's your name, love?
-Me? I'm Whitney.
-I just think that's a lovely name.
-Let me buy you a drink? We'll get better acquainted.
-Mate, what about the party?
All right, mine's a vodka - a double. I'll get us a table.
MUSIC: "I'm Your Man" by Wham!
Whitney, what are you doing?
Will you just leave me alone?
Come with me, yeah?
I'll be right back.
Vodka - ice, slice of lime.
-You can't just drag me in here, Kat.
-Just shut up and listen to me, yeah?
-You ain't got no right.
-I'm your mum's mate.
She ain't my mum and you ain't even mates any more.
You're still going to listen to me. Excuse me, love, do you mind?
-That bloke, he's only after one thing.
-Oh, really? Thank God you're here to educate me.
-And his mates.
They ain't all like that, Kat.
You was offering it to him on a plate, I heard you.
-You heard what you wanted to hear.
-I heard you and he heard you.
Do you know what? I don't care.
Blokes like me, I can't help that.
Don't tell me you ain't ever been there.
It don't matter what I've done.
Why? List too long, is it?
Yeah, it is, actually, and I ain't proud of it.
I feel sick when I think of the things that I've done
-and the people I've hurt.
-You ain't me.
No, I ain't you...
but we ain't so different, Whit.
Take a look.
I know you're hurting, but so is Bianca.
What do you know about Bianca? What do you know about me?
-I know what happened, she told me about Tony dying.
He didn't... He didn't just die - he killed himself, so...
And I'm not hurting - I'm glad, actually.
I don't care, I'm free now.
Anyway, I got a drink waiting for me.
You want to think about what you're going to do with that freedom, Whit.
-You think no-one understands you, no-one cares?
-Oh, they care.
They care all right, but they just don't know,
they don't know what goes on in my head.
-They don't understand me at all.
-Oh, yeah, why's that?
-Because it happened to me.
That don't mean nothing. That don't mean we're the same.
No-one's the "same".
-I don't want to talk about it, Kat.
-I think you need to talk about it.
I thought you said no-one understood you.
Yeah, no-one in my family, and you ain't my family.
You don't have nothing to do with me, Kat.
I know what it's like to be a little girl.
To think like a little girl. Big dreams.
Having fun with your mates. Growing up.
And then a man...
A grown man comes in your room.
And you're so sleepy, you don't know who it is
and then he shuts the door, he sits on your bed.
And he's stroking your hair and he's telling you that you're sweet...
and you're pretty and you're special.
And even though...
you're so scared and you feel sick
and you're totally paralysed, you think...
is this normal?
Do I deserve this?
And then your childhood is snatched away in an instant.
You think no-one understands you, eh?
I know what it's like, Whit, and so do you.
And it doesn't end there.
Even when he's dead and he's disappeared.
He's still got you, he's there for life.
It just messes everything up.
Just spoils everything.
My whole adult life has been spoilt by it.
Look at me. Whitney, look at me!
I'm dragging a bloke down an alleyway because I'm damaged.
A quick fix, yeah?
But you stay broken.
It's broken me, Whit.
But it doesn't have to break you.
I do not want you to go through this as well.
Oh, your hair's still wet.
I'm really sorry I was horrible to you.
That was wrong, will you forgive me?
Oh, you're so lovely.
-Then why do you hate me?
I don't hate you, I love you. I love you so much.
Do you hate Whitney?
No, I don't hate Whitney.
Then why are you so angry with her?
Is it cos of Tony?
Cos Tony's dead?
Is that why you're sad?
Let's go down and make a hot chocolate, yeah?
How does that sound?
Come on, come back with me. Come back home and talk to Bianca.
-I can't. I can't.
Kat, if she knew what was inside my head, it would break her heart.
She knows, believe me.
Whether you tell her or not, she knows exactly how you feel.
All you've got to do is look into your eyes.
Look at me.
You saying you can't see it?
VOICE BREAKING: Yeah, I can.
Come on, don't cry.
Kat, I don't know what to do.
I don't know...
I don't know what's wrong with me.
You know when he died...
You'd think I'd be pleased...
but I wasn't.
I just felt this emptiness inside. Empty and he was gone.
-And all the time, I just thought...
I thought I loved him.
I thought I loved him.
And when he died...
..I think I suddenly remembered what that was like.
-It wasn't true.
-I know, I know it wasn't.
But it felt true at the time.
He stole my childhood, Kat.
He stole it - I'm never going to get that back, am I?
I should hate him.
I know I should. But I can't, and I don't.
Maybe if I could see him one more time.
What would you say to him? How would that make it better?
I'd ask him. Say...
"Why did you do that to me?"
And what do you think he'd say? He'd only lie to you.
He'd say it's because he loves you and you're special.
And he'd say not to breathe a word because it's "our little secret".
He might have explained.
How could he?
Whitney, he was sick.
He won't admit it.
Harry, yeah, he wouldn't admit it. He made me think it was my fault.
And that's what Tony would do to you.
Kat, he was on his own.
He was all on his own and he was so sad.
Don't you dare feel sorry for him.
How could he have done a thing like that?
None of this is your fault.
What if I'd have seen him? I could've put it behind me.
Well, put it behind you now.
Yeah, both of us - let's both put it behind us now.
What, just like that?
No, not just like that.
But look, look where we are.
We're in some grotty toilet in a pub,
talking about two horrible men.
Two weak men who were so sick they took advantage of a child.
Now, I don't know about you,
but I'm not going to let them ruin my life any more.
I am sick of hating myself
and feeling dirty with this dirty little secret.
No, I'm not having it any more.
You know what Alfie said to me?
He said I was "beyond help" and I'm a "lost cause".
And he's right.
Look at me.
Go out on the pull.
Wearing a tight, low-cut dress.
And you see these earrings, right?
I don't know why, but if I've got a bloke in sight,
and I'm on the pull, I go out in these. I don't know why.
They were my mum's, she left them to me.
And do you know who bought them for her?
Paid for them with his own money.
Wrapped them up with his fat hands...
and gave them to her.
Wishing her happy birthday and giving her a peck on the cheek.
Then looking over at me and giving me a little wink.
She had no idea.
She thought the world of Harry.
I tried to tell her once.
But she didn't believe me and she called me a liar.
So I stayed quiet for years.
I was worried that she'd be disappointed...
..and she'd hate me.
But if only I'd tried harder
and MADE her believe me.
She was my mum and she's gone now...
..and I could never tell her what he did to me...
and how he made me feel.
But you should tell Bianca.
She loves you so much, she deserves that at least -
just be honest with her.
GIRLS CHATTER INDISTINCTLY
I've got to go.
Look, I can't force you to come back, yeah? It's up to you.
If you need a friend...
I need a friend.
Someone who understands you.
I'm here if you need me, all right?
MUSIC: "Gimme Me All Your Lovin'" by ZZ Top
Who's that for?
Whitney, she likes hot chocolate too.
Tony used to make it for her at bedtime.
That's nice of him.
Are there lots of men like Tony?
Not lots, no.
How do you know which ones are like him?
It's REALLY, really...
difficult to tell.
How do you know who's nice and who isn't?
You've just got to be really, really careful.
Careful who you trust.
Are you careful?
Is that why you ain't got a boyfriend no more?
Is Whitney coming back?
I would never, ever let anything bad happen to you.
Sorry, I forgot my key.
-Did you find her?
I looked in the R&R, the caff, the Vic.
-I even went to Ian's and asked Lucy.
Nothing. Listen, don't worry about it.
When she calms down, I'm sure she'll come back.
Yeah, yeah, I'm just being silly. Come on then, you - upstairs.
I'm going to read you a story.
Something you like, it don't matter how long it is, come on.
You all right?
We was down the pub having a chat. It was nice.
Come on, Tiff, I'll take you upstairs, darling.
-We made some hot chocolate - it's in the kitchen.
You sure you're all right?
VOICE BREAKING: No.
I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.
You don't have to be sorry.
It's not your fault, it's my fault.
I don't blame you, I didn't mean it. It's just something I said.
-It's all right.
I should've known.
You've got to say what you think, anyway.
You can't bottle it all up.
I'm glad, I'm glad he's gone.
Just sometimes, it just comes back to me
and I get a bit sad and I can't pretend it never happened.
Well, you don't have to pretend no more.
Cos you're here now and you're home and you're safe.
You can say anything to me.
I'm your mum.
There's nothing you can say or think that could ever shock me.
I just have to be a little bit braver.
I think we both do.
I better go.
That's all right.
Kat? I'll see you in the morning then, yeah? At the stall?
Yeah, why not?
-From now on,
I want you to come through that door,
close it behind you, and know that you are safe.
That no-one is ever, ever going to get you.
Or ever hurt you again. Do you hear me?
Do you think you can ever feel like that again?
Yeah, yeah, I think I can.
I'll be back in a minute.
I will, I'll be back in a minute.
I... I just wanted to say...
-..if you ever want anyone to talk to, I am around.
And them earrings...
I think you should dump 'em.
I don't think they're very you.
I'll see you.
I'll see you.
