You all ready for your big day?
Yeah. Bring it on.
No, Morgan. You put the polish on first.
You're moving the dust from one bit of the table to the other.
-That Hoover's not sucking up, I don't think.
-What are you doing?
-We're tidying up for Mum.
Didn't I tell you? Sonia's bringing her back this morning.
No, you didn't. And why didn't anyone wake me up?
-You said you were going to see Lily this morning.
-Not till later.
-She won't want a big fuss, anyway.
-No, don't put it there.
-It's your stuff, Morgan!
Oh, look, will you two just stop it, please?
What did I do to have such noisy kids?
-Oh, yeah - you're a quiet one.
-Yeah, well, it must be genetic. Shut up!
It's all fairly routine.
We've lodged your appeal, and I'll read out statements
-from your psychiatric and probation reports that support our argument.
-What are my chances?
The Crown will have their own statement, and presiding will be a panel of three appeal judges.
But we have definitely got a case.
Tell them that I'm a good person, Mark.
And what happened back then... that wasn't me.
That's what we've built our entire appeal upon.
Your bipolar disorder has to be taken into consideration.
It's my daughter's first day at school tomorrow.
If the appeal's a success, you'll be home in time to pick her up.
I have to be. It's as simple as that.
Here, what about "Leo" for Ernie?
-The twins - I want proper names for them.
-What about Tiger and Leo?
-What about Wallace and Gromit?
-You're so funny.
-I'm here all week.
-Look, I'm serious.
If Stacey gets out tomorrow, I want her to meet our sons, not a pair of muppets.
There you go - you just said it - Muppets. Bert and Ernie.
Do you know what... You're so razor sharp, you're lethal.
C'mere, give me a big kiss... Oh, look who's here.
Oh, look at you in your super-smart uniform!
-I'll get it.
Stand up here. Let's have a proper look.
Ain't that lovely. That's a bit big, isn't it, that skirt?
It's Auntie Whitney!
-Auntie Whitney's here - you going to show her, yeah?
Well, look at you! You're all ready for big school now!
-She looks really grown-up, doesn't she?
-Get a photo.
Big smile, ready! Oh, look at that - proper little angel.
Got you a gift.
Wow... Let's see what you got, then.
It's got your name on it!
Thank you, Auntie Whitney.
-Go and show Tommy. Go on.
-Oh, good girl - lovely.
Look, don't say anything,
but Stacey's appeal's been scheduled for this morning.
We only found out Friday.
Yeah. If they say yes, she'll be out tomorrow!!
-I know. And if she is released, we're going to throw her a welcome home party.
-It's family only, so you're invited, obviously.
Of course you are. You've been really helping out with Lily.
With any luck, you won't have to do it any more.
Can I take Lily out? Would you mind? It'd give you and Alfie a bit of space.
Yeah, of course. I'll get that uniform off her.
All right, Cindy.
Here we are.
Oh, look at her!
She's a beautiful lickle baby!
Oh, Teej, have a look.
We would have come to the hospital to see you
but Sharon said it might be a little bit too much.
-Well, it was all a bit overwhelming.
-Yeah. Well, we're here now, so...
-Well, maybe we should get them settled before we swamp them?
Come on, let's get you inside.
See you. Cheers, Phil...
-Well, you heard him - let's go.
-I don't think he meant...
-Let's just go in, son.
L, it's me again.
Um - just ringing to let you know that Johnny
and Nancy are on their way over with the extra clothes you wanted.
send my love to your mum.
Just...just give us a call, I miss you.
We've had a delivery.
Frozen ostrich burgers.
It's a mistake, right?
You're mad, ain't you?
They're going to be the star of the show at this barbecue on Friday. Linda called it on.
We're seriously going ahead with this barbecue?
Yeah, course. We need to get the punters back on side, don't we?
On my life, all the top gaffs,
they're whacking some sort of zoo animal in between two buns.
-According to Linda, anyway.
-Linda's not here, Mick.
She will be.
And if we're not on it by the time she gets back,
it'll be me on that barbecue - with an apple hanging out of my bottle.
All right, girls?
Oh. What happened to your plumbing course today?
-We're kind of short-staffed today, so I took the day off.
-Where are you off to?
Come on, then, let's go.
Right, I got all the basics in,
but we should write a list of what we'll need now you're back.
Yeah, well, TJ will give you a hand with that, won't you?
Have you thought of a name yet?
She's just given birth, Terry.
I've thought of a couple.
I was thinking maybe Lucy...but...
Well, now TJ's here and you're back -
you can put your heads together and come up with something.
-I think she's hungry.
-Yeah, she needs a bit of privacy, OK.
-Course. We'll go in the kitchen. Come on...
-Dad - we're in the way.
Yeah, look. It's too many people too soon, that's all.
People? We ain't people, love, we're family.
Ian's put us in charge while he's away, so do one, yeah?
Come on. We'll come back later.
When there's less people.
Go on, then.
I remember my first day at proper school.
My dad was so proud of me.
He took a photo and he put it in the cab of his lorry for years.
What happened to him?
He died in a car crash.
And your mum?
Don't ask - she's what you call a lost cause.
You know, your family could not be more different to mine.
You're so lucky.
Yeah. I suppose so.
More to worry about, though, sometimes.
You hoping your brother sees that?
Have you heard back from him since your message?
Not yet. But I sent him my number, so...
You can talk to me, Whit, you know that. What's the matter?
It's Lily's mum - she might come out of prison tomorrow.
That's a good thing, ain't it?
Why does everyone keep saying that? She's messed up, Lee.
She's got issues.
Well, I gathered she weren't in prison for nothing.
As long as she loves the kid.
I dunno. I mean, is that enough?
Yeah, all right, my mum must have loved me once.
Didn't stop her from being a complete nightmare, did it?
I don't want her to end up being screwed up like me.
Well, I think you're lovely.
Can we play Frisbee?
Yes, course we can - but we've got to go back to yours quick.
Yeah, I've got to get back to the Vic, anyway.
You got a strong bond, now, you and the little 'un.
Means whatever happens to her mum, she's got her auntie there for her - always.
I'd never let anything happen to her.
So stop worrying and enjoy her.
-Oh, hello, Charlie.
-You all right, Gran?
I've just nipped out from the launderette because I want to buy
some of them special tea bags - you know - green ones, for Carol.
Very good for your health. I think I might try some...
-It's fine - I'll get it.
Only I want to pop in on her, after my shift,
cos Bianca says that she's coming home from Sonia's today.
Right, well, give her my best, yeah?
Oh, hello, Denise.
Good morning, Dot.
How are you bearing up?
Oh, with having a lucky escape?
I'm fine, thank you for asking.
Come on, Gran, I'll walk you back to work.
It's all right, Helen, I'll...
You all right? I just heard what Mrs Branning said.
It can't be easy for you, Denise - no matter what you say -
everyone knowing your business.
Oh, let the gossips have their day. I'm bulletproof, me.
At least Ian managed to disappear until the dust settles - you're the victim.
Yeah, well - I've had a few bruises, but I'll survive.
If there's anything I can do...
Actually, I've got a few things to sort out over at the house if you can cover for me?
The vandals have really turned that place over.
-I'll come and help. I'm only on till lunch.
-No, really, it's fine.
There's not a lot left to do, and it's good to be busy.
You all right, Tamwar?
She's putting on a brave face, but she must be mortified!
-Wouldn't you be?
-I wouldn't go anywhere near Ian in the first place.
Good job you've got that "bad man" radar then.
Imagine everyone knowing your fiance's a kerb crawler, though?
All those wagging tongues...
She's my friend, yeah? And I'm worried about her.
Everything on her plate, and she's got to look after Patrick and clean up the house.
I just wish she'd let me help.
Yeah, it's a shame she's not got any family around here any more.
So, should we go to the park?
-And should we get ice cream?
There we go - take your pick. Fast or super-fast?
-Super-fast it is!
-DOORBELL RINGS What ice cream should we get?
-I'll get it.
-Any chance of a cuppa?
He needs to wind his neck in. Who does he think he is, anyway?
I mean, you're the flipping father!
-You need to get in there, you need to mark your territory...
-I'm not a dog, am I?
-I gotta get back to my cab. We're going to go back there lunchtime.
No, no, no... Lunchtime we're going to go back in there
and show them who the daddy is, cos I'm not having Phil Mitchell set the rules.
I don't believe this! We wasn't expecting you till tomorrow - if at all!
-I didn't want to get my hopes up!
-It all happened so quick!
They granted my appeal, and then said that I could go today.
-I nearly ran here, Kat.
-So, this is it? You're home now?
Lily, you've got so big! I almost didn't recognise you!
I haven't changed, have I? I'm still the same old Mummy.
Yeah, course she is. Lily... It's lovely, ain't it, eh?
-She's getting some cheap stock for the stall.
-Things are a bit tight.
This one's going to do a bit of a booze run so we can have a party tomorrow.
Well, should I go out now and get something to celebrate?
-No, no, don't worry, this is great.
-You going to go to Mummy?
Why don't you stay in Nan's room while she's away
and we'll just get a blow-up bed for Lily's room.
Yeah, just for a few nights,
-then me and Lil will find somewhere else.
-No! We want you here, don't we, Alfie?
-In the vicinity...
-You just said you was strapped.
-I don't want to be a burden.
-I don't want to go away.
What, me and you together?
Look, that was B. I said I'd cover for her on the stall when Carol got home.
-Look, I'll be as quick as I can, and when I come back we'll catch up properly, yeah?
Alfie, do me a favour... Shove that lot in the washing machine.
Oh, hold on, I got to change some nappies first. Excuse me.
I'm sorry, Stacey - we've spent a lot of time together.
Lily, go to your mummy, darling, don't be silly.
It's all right, it's all right - she's just overwhelmed.
Yeah, her mum's not well,
so Linda's gone to stay with her whilst she's off her feet.
Well, tell her I was asking after her, yeah?
I hated seeing her upset.
Nah, it's all water under the... listen, you know L.
Well, I hope he's right.
Well, he's an idiot for getting involved in the first place.
None of this would have happened if he'd have kept his nose out of it.
Shirl. That was Nance.
Mum said she don't want to talk about it
but she ain't planning on coming back with them tomorrow.
Mum says Nan needs her but Nancy says as far as she can see,
-Do you think we should tell Dad?
GLASS BREAKS AND MICK GROWLS
Go upstairs and take a break.
Lee can help me manage down here.
They're in here somewhere. I picked them up on the way home.
Oh, here we are. Jelly sweets!
-Um, not any more.
She got sick at the funfair, she ate too many.
-Didn't you, remember?
I'd better go if Carol's back.
I don't want you to.
-Well, I've got to.
-Ta-da! Meet the lads.
Alfie, I'm so sorry - I need to get some fresh air.
Looks like I've walked into a parallel universe!
We thought we'd tidy up for you. And Liam took the kids to the Science Museum,
-so you can have the place to yourself for a bit.
-Who says I want to be by myself?
-Three kids and the end of the holidays? Trust me!
-Go on, go and put your feet up.
So how's she been since the last time I came round?
Physically? Tired but good. She's healing really well.
But emotionally, I don't really know. She seems quite withdrawn.
Well, she's bound to be like that, ain't she, eh?
I'm just glad it's all over - are you?
-Cup of tea?
-Deano? What are you doing here?
-I could ask you the same thing. I heard you were banged up.
-Yeah, well I'm out now.
Can I get a tea, please?
-So why the long face?
-What's it got to do with you?
-Just that when I got out, I didn't stop celebrating for like a month.
-Yeah, well, I'm not you, am I?
Oh, and Stace...
Just "Dean". Not so much of the "Deano" any more.
I like to think I've matured as a person.
A little bit like yourself.
-KNOCK ON DOOR
Peter said I could come up. I'll go if you want.
No. Stay. If you like...
I didn't get a proper look at it before.
It's not an "it", it's a "her".
It's all right. I did the same thing at first.
I thought you said we was having a boy.
Yeah, well. Couldn't even get that right, could we?
-Liam knows how to get box sets. If I can...
-I don't want box sets.
Right, that is you all unpacked, Mum, OK?
For God's sake, I can unpack my own stuff!
Why don't you just leave me to it - yeah?
Go on, you must have other things you need to be getting on with.
I don't need mollycoddling.
All right, well, call me if you need me.
Yes, darling. And thank you so much for looking after me, OK.
And thank Rebecca for lending me her room. OK, see you later.
Go on, that stall won't run by itself.
You disinfected that?
Nah, it's just a scratch.
Don't tell Linda, though.
She's always telling me to swerve the breakables.
You're all right. Your secret's safe with me.
Looks worse then it is.
Bet it stings, though.
Well, it's my own stupid fault.
My own stupid, selfish fault.
What am I going to do, Shirl?
What if she's left me?
There you are.
Alfie said you'd ran off. What's wrong?
I just thought that I could pick up where I left off.
-So what's changed?
I suppose life just goes on, don't it?
You've only just got back.
I wish we'd known - we wanted to make a fuss!
Lily looked at me like I was a stranger, Kat.
-She was shocked.
-She looked quite comfortable with Whitney.
Whitney's just helping, Stace.
I know, I know - you don't even need to say it -
I'm pathetic for even thinking it! It's just...it hurt.
I wanted to cry but that would have just made everything worse -
so I just bottled it instead.
Kids smell fear, you know.
That's what it is, Kat - it's fear.
I was so excited this morning, I couldn't wait to come home and...
I'm scared, Kat.
So how do you feel?
Knackered, mainly, but, I dunno, like...someone else.
My dad keeps telling me how I should feel - "as a parent".
But I don't know how to.
Me neither. She's only been here three days.
Here - you hold her. It might help.
Ah, look at you two - the proud mum and dad.
-Careful, mate - she's a baby, not an Xbox!
Yeah, I know, Look, I'm sorry - I can't do this.
Kat's with her - seems it was all a bit too much.
Yeah. Lily thinks it's her fault for being too shy.
Nah, course it ain't.
Nah, just needs a bit of space, that's all.
A bit of space? She's had space for the last five months.
It's a bit more complicated than that, Whitney.
You know prison - messes with your head, don't it?
Yeah. So does being dumped by your mum.
Is that my mummy?
It's your daddy.
You sure you don't want one?
I've been living off caffeine.
The twins don't give me any sleep.
I bet having another kid to look after was exactly what you needed.
Will you leave it out?
Enough with the self pity!
She's been lost without you. She's only just started smiling again.
I don't want her to be unhappy...
Then get over yourself and face the facts.
You've just come out of prison - which is amazing.
You've got a beautiful little girl who just happens to be
knocked sideways because she didn't know her mummy was coming home.
So what? She's four.
The more you pile on the pressure,
the more you're going to push her away.
What she needs is consistency and your unconditional love.
And it might take a bit of time for her to get used to having you back.
But time is something you have now. And that's brilliant.
You're the grown-up, Stace.
Be strong, yeah - for Lily.
I was just tidying myself up to come and see you!
Yeah, I fancied just getting out.
Bianca's sent the kids away for the day and...
It's just a bit too quiet for me.
Are you all right? Oh, come here.
I just wish Ian was here, whatever they're all saying about him.
I hate what he's done to Denise, and our family.
What, he just runs off, leaving us to deal with all the looks
and the comments. You know, as if we haven't been through enough...
It'll be fine, yeah, he'll come back...
..it'll blow over and we'll be all right.
Besides, you got me.
You're my little sister. Not going to let you down, am I?
Listen, your client's moved. Take a short lunch break - thank you, thank you.
Yeah, no problem. All right, mate. Bye.
-Hey. We're fully booked, unless you want to make an appointment.
-Actually, I was just hoping for a quick word.
-Like I said, I'm pretty busy.
It's about Denise. I'm worried about her, but if you haven't got time...
No, what's happened? What's wrong?
So it's your post-operative checkup what you're worried about?
It's the third appointment they've given me. I cancelled the other two.
-I couldn't face it.
But you've got to.
I mean, Sonia's a trained nurse, didn't she explain to you...
-I lied to her.
I told her that they'd cancelled it.
It's just that if it's not all clear...
We'll have to start all over again.
Only this time I've got less to play with.
You don't want to be scared of dying.
I mean, it's the living what's difficult -
trying to live a life that you're proud of.
We've all done things we're ashamed of, Dot.
Look, you mustn't be worried about when your time comes.
And I'm sure it ain't going to be for ages yet.
I mean, your father would tell you how proud he is of you.
Oh, if only he could speak...
I'm so sorry.
I don't know what's upset me.
I mean, it's not...
What have you said?
-What have you told her?!
-You haven't told her about Nick?
-Of course I haven't. We agreed!
I must apologise. It comes over you when you least expect it.
Actually, I'm going to have to go, Dot.
Please, don't mind me...
No, no, it's not you, Dot. It's all right, I'll see you later.
-Look, don't go...
That tight enough?
Hi... I was just taking her to the park.
I'm sorry, Mummy.
What are you sorry for, sweetheart?
Don't be sorry!
Mummy's sorry for ever going away.
Here, Lily - why don't we show Mummy
what you look like in your new school uniform?
You know, there's really no need.
We'll be the judge of that.
Yeah, well... It's just with Patrick asleep...
-So, we'll be quiet.
And if there's no more cleaning left to do,
then at least we'll make you some lunch or something.
I just... Well, I can't seem to... make any headway.
Aw, you look lovely!
I'm going to be the proudest mum at that school gate.
-I'll make some lunch, yeah?
-I'll do it if you want.
-I'm going to head off now.
Oh, all right. Well, thanks for all your help, Whitney.
-Kat says that you've been brilliant.
What about my daddy?
I might have said that she - could maybe see her daddy.
-Kat - will you...?
Lily, do you want to help me make some sandwiches? Come on, then.
Stacey, I'm sorry, I didn't think you were coming back.
-Course I was coming back!
-She's got a right to know who her dad is.
That's not for you to decide!
Oh, Stace, we've spent loads of time together
-since you've been banged up - she's my niece.
-She's my daughter.
-Some mum you turned out to be.
She's spent most of her life on the run - then you finally get nicked.
And we know you've got problems...
-Wait, Stacey, I'm just trying to protect her...
-I said get out, and don't come anywhere near my daughter ever again!
-Stacey, that's not fair.
No, what's not fair is you whispering things to a four-year-old
about a bloke that she knows nothing about.
So do as you're told and get out of this house before I smack you one.
-There you are, Tel.
Dad, I've seen the baby and I've held it, OK?
Yeah, and now we're taking her a little teddy.
-I don't want to go back.
-What? Course you do.
You know it's rude to stare, right?
You want to see rude? Just keep going, yeah?
Just saying. I've read about people that stalk their exes.
Oh, I didn't know you could read!
How do you spell "naff off and mind your own business"?
Is that for the baby?
-Yeah. We're going over there now.
-No, we're not.
He's just got a cob on, cos Phil Mitchell's giving it the big 'un.
-That's not it.
-What is he anyway? He's not even related.
What is he - Cindy's mum's ex-boyfriend's...
Stop it, Dad - you don't listen!
-I can't handle it!
-Don't you want some say in your kid's future?
Why, when we're not even going to be here?
What? You been too busy banging on about being a grandad
you forgot to tell her we're moving to Milton Keynes?
-TJ, come here!
Maybe I come on a bit strong.
No. Whitney needed to be told. Lily's your daughter.
The sooner me and Lily get our own place, we can get back into some sort of routine.
ALFIE SIGHS This is a nightmare.
Just as Ernie goes to sleep, Bert wakes up. I might take him for a walk.
Well, me and Lily'll take him. We'll go down the letting agents, get started on that flat hunting.
-Give you two a breather.
-That's kind of you - thanks, Stace.
Kat, come on. The important thing is Stacey's out now, all right?
Well, I can see why she wants her own space,
it's probably quieter in Her Majesty's than here.
-Just look around, we're busting at the seams here.
now we've got her back, I don't want to let her go.
Hey! Come on, like I said - Stacey's out,
-this is all good news. All right?
-Course it is. We're on the up!
You're upping sticks an' moving to Milton Keynes?!
Don't you think I'm owed some kind of explanation?
No, I don't. It's got nothing to do with you.
Yes, it's got nothing to do with you.
Shut up, you, this is a private argument.
What's Milton Keynes got that Walford hasn't?
Opportunities. And a seriously neat grid road system,
all joined together with roundabouts.
And my sister, Val.
Who I'm quite close to, actually. Talk to her a lot on the phone.
-Course, you'd know that if you paid any attention to MY life.
We're setting up a cab company.
-Kept that a bit quiet.
-Nah, I didn't, really. Been talking about it for a while.
You know, Val got made redundant. Got a bit of cash.
I need to get on with my life, cos you want me to.
What did you expect?
Shut your mouth, Yates,
or I'll cut your brakes.
Such class! And you wonder why he's running for the hills(?)
So now you know.
I'm going to find TJ.
Lily's the only real family I've got round here.
And if I can't see her any more, I've got no-one.
What, and Kat didn't stick up for you?
I messaged Ryan. To meet me in Walford Park later.
He's all I've got.
Well, you've got me. You've got Bianca.
Bianca's not even my real family, is she?
Her and Sonia are so caught up in this Carol thing.
They're like a team, and I'm not part of it.
Yeah, when times are tough families close ranks.
And that's why I need to see mine.
Oh, babe... Look, I'd come with you, but I can't.
I took the day off here so I can help Dad out.
And family's more important?
B... Can I talk to you?
Whit, would you mind looking after the stall for a couple of minutes?
It's just Terry, he's moving to Milton Keynes.
I mean - I'm not bothered. Cows and roundabouts? He's welcome to it.
But I just thought perhaps I could...you know...
I don't want to lose her, Carol. Not now.
It's being part of a family, being part of a...
a warm, kind, decent family. It's something I've never had before.
That's right. Cos Dot is a very warm, kind human being.
And she's been really good to me. And here I am, keeping a secret...
-It's for her own good.
-..for somebody I barely even know.
Carol, I AM her grandson.
All right? Come on, you know you can trust me.
I hardly even know you.
If there's anything
that I can do to prove that to you, just say.
That handrail's up in the bathroom. Tell him to go easy on it.
Patrick's got a cup of tea, some biscuits,
the racing's on. He couldn't be happier.
Why don't I pop out and get you some shopping, eh?
Between you, me and Dean we'll soon have this place turned around.
You mustn't... You mustn't do this. Collapse into yourself.
You've done nothing wrong.
It's Ian they're all talking about, he's the one they're judging.
You've got support. Me, Dean - we're here for you.
You're not alone.
-Yeah. You all right?
-Bert's asleep in the pram. Lily's watching him.
I think she likes playing big sister.
Yeah, see, a proper family, you see that, Stace?
Alfie, I don't want to overstay our welcome.
As soon as I get a job and we find somewhere to live, then...
Oi, madam. Come and sit down.
No. Not till we decide what we're going to call 'em.
I thought they were called Bert and Ernie?
Yeah, until we get proper names.
-They are proper names, they're traditional, ain't they?
-Yeah, I think it suits 'em.
-Bert and Ernie...
-Yeah... See, works for me.
Yeah, I suppose I'm sort of getting used to it.
There we go! Albert and Ernest it is, then.
Right, come on, we'll go and register 'em.
-What's the rush?
-Well, get down there, sign all the paperwork, like a proper family.
We ARE a proper family. A little bit of paper ain't going to make any difference, is it?
-Mummy? When's Whitney going to take me to the park?
Listen, I'm going to pick Tommy up and I'll take Lily with me, yeah?
-Soon as I come back, we're going to the registry office, right?
-Lily, come on. Get your coat on!
Don't go all guilty on me, I can read you like a book.
The er...barrel's done, so you might want to give the pump a go.
How about you and me get out of here for a bit?
Stuffy old pub.
I can't. Cos we're short-staffed, ain't we, so...
Lee... You can manage for a couple of hours, can't you?
Yeah, well, I took the day off to help you out, didn't I, so...
you might as well take advantage of it.
Yeah, maybe I could do with some fresh air.
Sorry for running out.
I'm no good with babies.
Don't know what to do with 'em.
Like I do(?)
Bet you wish you'd never got with me now.
Yeah, well, Justin Bieber had stuff on.
-It's well weird.
It's not like I'm going to be here anyway.
To Milton Keynes.
Escaping! Lucky you.
It's my dad's work, not because of...
If you want me to stay...
I don't want to marry you, TJ.
Happy ever after, I don't believe in all that.
You should go.
Have a life.
Have you thought about what you're going to call her yet?
Well, she's got a loud voice, like, really loud, so...
I was thinking maybe Beth? After Beth Ditto.
I could try holding her again.
Patrick's the only one that's ever really been there for me.
Feels like he's been taken away.
Kim's gone, Ian's humiliated me...
Yeah, but we're here.
Shabnam's right. Any time.
Night or day.
Sorry? Night out with the lads and Denise calls,
you're going to come running? Seriously?
Yeah, if she needs me.
Listen, I am really grateful. To both of you.
No, darling, it's all right. I'll go.
What's YOUR problem?
I just don't think you should be making promises you can't keep.
Good. Because I'm not.
-You wouldn't even have known anything was wrong if I hadn't told you.
-Denise is my stepmum.
She knows I'm here if she needs me.
Right. Anything else you need doing?
No, it's OK. You go. And thank you.
Any time. Day or night.
-From now on, I want you thinking and concentrating purely on the future.
I'll pop in every now and then, but
-we'll have you back on your feet in no time.
Oh. Stacey. When'd you get out?
Today. I won my appeal. Erm...is Whitney in?
No, I've just seen her rushing off somewhere.
I really need to apologise to her about something.
-Why, what's happened?
-Nothing, I just need to find her so that I can talk to her and sort it out.
Well, why don't you try over the Vic?
-You know, that Mick Carter's son Lee, he might know something.
-All right. Thanks.
Beth, eh? I like it.
She's got your nose, ain't she, TJ, eh? Definitely a Spraggan.
Cindy knows...we're moving.
Ah. Yeah, well...we ain't going to leave you high and dry, you know that?
-Going to provide for you both, send you money and...
-I wasn't asking.
No, no, no, it's just - you know, we accept our responsibilities.
Don't we, TJ?
Er, well - I better go. Peter'll be worrying.
Yeah, sure. And...you know, any time you need anything -
anything - you just...
It's nice to see you and Beth bonding, innit?
That baby's as much yours as it is hers, you know that, don't ya?
I don't care what Phil Mitchell says.
Anyway, where you been? Been looking for you everywhere.
I just needed a walk.
I should have seen this coming, shouldn't I?
You don't want to go to Milton Keynes, you want to stay here, of course.
-No, I don't want to stay here...
-Look, Milton Keynes has got opportunities.
-You know, we can have a fresh start, can't we? And we can come back and visit.
You don't get it. You don't get any of it. I don't want this.
-Any of it. I don't want to be a dad.
I don't want to be one of them people with no lives,
-pushing round some...
-It's a bit late for that now.
-I can't do it!
-Well, you shouldn't have had unprotected sex!
I don't want a baby and I can't do it. You just don't listen.
-Whoa, whoa, whoa...
-No! Dad, you never listen to me!
-OK, all right...
-Come on, come on, come on. Come here.
-It's going to be all right. OK?
It's going to be fine, we're going to work it out, I promise ya.
Hello. I'm looking for Lee Carter.
You found him. Who wants to know?
I'm Stacey. I'm Lily's mum.
Me and Whitney had words, and...
Yeah, you proper upset her.
I know, that's why I wanted to find her, so that I could apologise.
-Lily means the world to Whitney.
-I know, that's why I want to find her so I can tell her I'm sorry.
I just lost my temper. But I would never stop Whitney seeing Lily - I wouldn't do that.
Right, well, she's gone to Walford Park to meet her brother,
she felt that she needed some support.
What - from a bloke who's on the run?
Do you remember Viccy Park?
You and Kevin got me out me nut on this stuff. How old was I?
-No! I was about 13.
Just remember the park keeper going insane over his marigolds.
Yeah, well, you were watering 'em with your little willy at the time, weren't ya?
Oi, oi! Less of the "little".
Oh, it's Lee.
Just leave it, Mick.
Look, he survived Afghanistan.
He can survive a couple of hours in the Vic.
Linda'll come round, she just needs some time.
Just thought it'd be a little white lie.
You know, and it'd all blow over. It just...
just got worse and worse.
She's at her mum's, necking the Chardonnay,
calling you all the names under the sun.
She's going to get it out of her system, and then...
..then she'll come home.
You think so?
I know so.
So, you can sit here beating yourself up,
or you can put all that energy
into making this barbecue a big success.
And then when Linda comes home...
all this stuff with Ian, it'll be last week's chip paper.
Maybe you're right.
I know I am.
You should listen to me more often.
We've got Stacey's drinks to organise, Ernie's just dumped toxic waste in his clean nappy.
We've no time to register their names.
I want that piece of paper, to make us a proper family.
Bert and Ernie. I'm not changing my mind.
No, I'm not talking... No, I'm not talking about that.
It's not only births they do at the registry office. I just thought...
I just thought, while we were there, you know...
Are you saying what I think you're saying?
I've probably got sick in my hair!
Oi, Kat Moon. You are, and always will be...
# The most beautiful girl in the world. #
-Oh, yeah, yeah - in here!
-Hey! Hello, darling. Ooh, careful.
And you, darling, come here. Mwah!
Thought the house was quiet! THEY LAUGH
Liam took us to the Science Museum.
Did he? Ooh, preparation for big school, eh?
-Big week this week, Tiff!
Yeah! New shoes. New bag. Everything.
You know what?
It doesn't seem two minutes since you were at primary school.
Do you want to come and check out my new uniform?
Yeah, I will do in a minute.
But your mum wants you to get everything together - you two.
-Books and bags and stuff, all right? I'll be up in a minute.
-See you in a sec.
It's nice of you to look after them.
Yeah, there must've been 1,000 kids there. It was a nightmare.
Oh, I'm really proud of you, helping me out, you know,
covering my shifts at the caff.
Well, it's easy compared to what you've been through.
When do you get the results?
You know, like, the final ones. To see if...
See if it was all worth it?
Well, whatever happens, you know I'll always be here for you.
D'you know, at the start of this, you were still a young boy.
Somewhere down the line, you've turned into a young man.
Yeah, what they put in that water, eh?
Yeah! Tiffany starting big school...
Yeah. Did you hear Cindy had her baby?
Well, you know, you're all growing up.
That's TJ's life over with.
I tell you, Nan, I ain't ever making that mistake.
All some people want is a family, Liam.
It doesn't matter how old you are.
You coming, then?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll be up in a minute!
Yeah, well, I reckon
you should be able to choose who you're related to.
-You all right?
You come to have another go at me, have you?
I shouldn't have said what I said.
I wouldn't stop you seeing Lily.
How'd you know I was here?
I asked Lee.
Look, Whitney, I'm sorry, I shouldn't have kicked off like that.
And I will tell Lily all about Ryan but...
in time. In my time.
It's just cos I know...
..what it's like to not have your parents around.
I'm back now.
And I know that I've got a lot of making up to do with Lily and...
..maybe you're right, maybe I ain't up to it...
She's not going to want to know me no more.
What, you think I ain't going to need your help?
I'm going to need you on speed dial.
If you'll forgive me?
Well, Ryan's not even turned up.
My own flesh and blood and he's not even bothered about me.
You can't have really believed
that he was just going to risk everything and come?
Ryan's not stupid.
What if he was seen?
Look, Lily's just got one parent back. She just needs to enjoy that.
And, you know, get used to having me around again.
And then, maybe, we can think about her meeting Ryan.
Just cos he ain't turned up, it don't mean he don't care.
That's exactly what it feels like.
It's like everyone else has got someone and I haven't.
I ain't got no-one.
Well, that Lee seemed keen.
And you've got Bianca.
Nah, she's too wrapped up in herself.
Yeah, but she'll be there for you if you ever need anything.
Just like Kat is with me.
You've got good people who care about you right here.
That's what's important.
Not whether you're related or not.
It's been ages since I've seen this much sky.
It's funny, you dream about it, and then when you get it...
it can all just be a bit too much.
Do you want me to walk you back?
Yeah, all right. Lil!
Line 'em up, son.
Shirl, you were right. Thank you. I feel better already.
Mum came back. You just missed her.
I didn't know where you were. I did try calling.
What she come back for?
Some more clothes.
I'm so sorry, Mick.
No, you weren't to know, was you?
Er...I better go and, um, start cleaning down that barbecue.
You know, make sure it's all ready.
This food's still frozen.
You didn't think they were going to just marry us there and then, did you?
I didn't think we'd have to wait 15 days.
That's in case I change my mind.
Oh, listen to you!
There's not much, is there?
Be all right, we'll get mullered on Mo's cheap Hungarian wine.
When we do get married, it's going to be the biggest,
the boldest, the brightest,
the wildest wedding Walford has ever seen.
-On a boat on the Thames.
-Yeah, great idea, let's do it!
I mean, we'll all wear rubber rings and go for a swim.
Oh, she's here. Ta-da!
-That's if you're up for it?
-Yeah, come on!
Ah, that's lovely.
-That's all right.
You know that I've been looking for flats?
Yeah, and you've found one, yeah?
Well, no, I was going to ask if it was all right
if me and Lily stayed here for a bit? Just till I find my feet.
Course it is. You can stay here as long as you like.
-Can't she, Alfie?
-I didn't want to assume...
Don't be silly.
-Want a glass of wine, yeah?
Yeah. Come on, Lily, you want a biscuit? Here we go...
I need the bottle opener, Alfie!
I'll go and get it for you. Right, that's it.
Dot's watching "Flog it!"
No, no, no, don't disturb her.
I was just thinking about what you said.
About me trusting you.
Yeah. Of course you can.
Can I, though, Charlie?
I mean, how do I know?
You say you're Dot's grandson...
Yeah, well, I'd feel better if I knew for sure.
What do you want me to do?
-The DNA test.
-The DNA test(!)
It's no big deal. I checked it all out on the internet.
It just takes 24 hours to get the results back.
And then we'll all know where we stand, won't we?
I was just coming to see you.
Why'd you walk out? I've been ringing you.
-Why'd you grass me up?
-Well, Stacey wanted to apologise.
-Do you want me to trust you or what?
-Yeah, you can.
I've been proper worried about you.
Look, maybe you don't need anyone to worry about you.
No, I do.
Well, then, let me.
Yeah, I mean, I know it ain't always going to be easy but I can take it.
I'm here for you, 100%.
So he's rubbing and rubbing, right?
I'm laying there, in pain,
but I couldn't tell him he's rubbing the wrong leg!
DOORBELL RINGS It's all right, I'll get it.
So what did you miss most, Stace, while you was away?
Apart from the vodka cocktails, of course?
This. All of it.
It's really lovely to have you back.
How you fixed for baby-sitting the next few months?
Here we go. The more the merrier!
All right, Whit?
Whit, look - little bubbies!
Oh, and thanks for helping me out earlier.
Sorry that we got off on the wrong foot.
-Oldest and the best-looking of the Carter family.
-Let's start from scratch, eh?
I do like a cocktail sausage.
-Did you get me one?
-No. Sorry, babe.
I can't imagine what it must be like...
..being locked away from all the people you care about.
Makes you grateful for what you've got, don't it?
Well, I would be!
ALFIE: Hey, listen! Tel's in the house, everybody!
Here he is! Ha-ha!
-You want a beer?
-Yeah, got any cold ones?
Oh! Typical you! Out the way.
can I have a word with you?
Thought we should clear the air.
Well, you should've said something.
Well, it's not like you're going to come with me, is it?
What, to Milton Keynes?
I can't, my mum's just come home anyway.
Yeah. How is she?
Yeah, she's looking good. But we've still got a way to go.
family comes first, don't it?
What's that supposed to mean?
It means you put your family first.
Is that why you're going, then?
I never said that.
Why you trying to turn this round on me now and blame me?
Do you know he's moving to Milton Keynes, Alf?
It's a bit sudden, I know.
But why let friendship and a tight-knit community
stand in the way of personal ambition, eh, Tel?
Right, er...let's get this party started, shall we?
Milton Keynes?! Kept that one to yourself.
Yeah, I'm sorry, mate.
I-I was going to tell you but, like she said...
it's all come out of the blue, I'm sorry.
No, it's all right. What will I do without my partner in crime?
-Well, I'm only up the motorway...
-It's only Milton Keynes.
Let's have a beer for the road.
Tell you what, let's have five or six.
-Let's get on it, yeah? Come on.
-Look, mate. I hate to do this,
but I'm not in the mood for...
-All right, all right.
-I'm really sorry.
-No, don't be silly.
-Catch you later, mate.
-Speak to you later.
-You all right?
It's nothing to do with me, is it?
Thanks very much, mate. Cheers, thank you.
So is this just it, then?
Are you trying to make out I'm selfish,
-just cos I want to stay and look after my own mum?
-I never said that!
You should put your family first, we all should.
That's why I'm moving away.
Well, what about me?
Oh, Bianca, I can't hang around for ever.
I thought we were all right. I thought we were happy.
No, you were happy.
I just went along with our little "arrangement"
cos it made you happy.
All I ever want to do is make you happy.
Cos I love you.
Look, if you can't commit to me...
then that's fine.
But it's time we all moved on, eh?
I've got a spare 20 minutes.
-Where's the corkscrew?
Oh, you don't need to worry about that, Stace.
Naughty Alfie - it says rent ain't been paid.
Right, yeah. Cos, listen...
Mo was supposed to sort that out.
We didn't want Kat worrying, so just put it away, yeah?
For six MONTHS?!
Alfie, they're going to evict us.
That should do it. Don't want to dig it in, you know.
If we got the 12.44, we'll be there in time for a coffee. What do you think?
-I wish I had a new uniform that fit me.
-Well, it does now. There you go.
-I wouldn't let Rebecca go to school with that make-up.
-You're going to knock 'em out.
-Yeah, cos school's for finding a boyfriend!
-Why do you keep having a go?
-I don't like the boys my age anyway. They're losers.
-What do you mean, your age?
Right, what are we going to do, then? About this bus?
-What's the matter with your car?
-How many times have I got to tell you? It's in the garage.
-Is Nan going to be OK?
-Of course she is, darling.
-What if the cancer's still there?
-Well, it won't be, will it?
How did you not know about this?
Cos Mo said she'd sorted it.
And you trusted her?
They're both still sleeping.
We're behind on the rent
and we're being evicted in four weeks.
From last Monday.
-Aw, thank you.
Can't you start at our school for a week before you move?
Dad says there's no point
and anyway we're going to see our mum for a few days.
So you get a whole week more holiday than me! That's so unfair.
Be boring with just my brother to hang out with.
Promise you won't make a new best friend and forget about me.
I won't. I swear.
Promise you won't forget about me?
Where's your dad, Rose?
Come on, then. Get a move on.
Seriously, don't worry about it. We'll work something out.
Just need to raise enough cash to put down a deposit. Be fine.
Be better if we split up. We're never going to find a place big enough for all of us.
-We've only just got you back.
-Hold on. No, no. Stacey's right, though. Gives us a better chance.
I'll have to go back on the stall. You can stay here and look after the twins.
What are you talking about? You missed out on Tommy and Zoe. You're not going to go through that again.
I'll do it.
-Not like I ain't got any experience.
Yeah, I'm happy to do that. Just put all the money in one pot, we'll sort it out from there.
Girls, girls. I got us into this mess - I'm going to get us out.
I'm going to go work on the stall.
You're a qualified hair thingy - whatever you do -
so you can get a proper...
-Dean's gaff! Yeah?
Yeah, Shirley's son. He's got some trendy hairdresser's up on Turpin Road.
He's a hairdresser?
-Lovely. That's sorted, then.
-What about Aleks?
Darling, don't worry about Aleks. OK?
This time next week, we're going to have another party to burn that letter.
It'll all be good.
Hey. You'll be late.
-I'm not going to school.
I'm coming with you.
Listen, darling, you've been such a support to me
and I can't tell you what that's meant
but if you really want to help me today, you'll go to school.
It's just one day.
It's your final year, Liam. And every day matters.
Promise me you'll go and concentrate?
As long as you promise to text me straight after.
Liam, what are you still doing here?
I'm going, I'm going.
Oh, there's too many women in this house!
I'm going to be SO late! I've got to go.
-Good luck for today.
-So meet you at the bus stop at half past one, yeah?
-No, you two don't have to bother coming. No, I'll just be in and out.
-I took the morning off especially.
That's good. Treat yourself to some "you" time.
Tummy ache? What sort of tummy ache?
Can I stay at home today?
Is this because of school?
It's normal to be a bit scared at first.
But I promise you, Lil, by the end of the day you'll be having
so much fun, you won't want to come home.
Will you be there when I get back?
Mummy's going to pick you up. I told you, didn't I?
I'm never going anywhere ever again.
And Mummy's going to get a job, so me and you,
we don't have to worry about anything.
What are you doing here?
How'd you get out?
Dug a tunnel under the wall.
Well, no-one told me.
Why would they?
-Max, we're running a bit late.
-Can I take you for a drink later?
Have a catch up - just as mates.
I'm spending the evening with Lil. Sorry. Come on.
Right, I've read through the instructions.
It looks quite straightforward, you just have to put
a swab inside your mouth and then put it in a sealed envelope.
-You had any food or drink?
All right, Carol? How are you? The operation go all right?
Yeah, fine, thanks.
Right, well, let's do it now.
-Hang on a second.
Apparently one in five of these grandparent DNA tests comes
Plus that's expensive - you can't afford that.
So you're refusing to do it?
I'm not refusing to do it. I'm just saying what's the point,
if it's not going to prove my relationship to Dot either way?
Always got an answer, haven't you? Always so reasonable.
-Right, look, if you're dead set on it I'll do it and I'll pay.
Because I'm not lying
and if it means you keep the other secret, then it's worth it.
-How are you going to get the sample from Dot?
All right, well, I'll get it later.
No, no, no, I'll do that. Thank you.
You might need me to let you in then, unless you're planning a cat burglary?
Tell you what - you wearing that, you'll break a million hearts, you'll look gorgeous in that.
Promise you. Seriously, you will.
Alfie, is this going to be a regular thing - me and you working together?
Cos if it is, I think we need to lay down a few ground rules.
I mean, I'm not saying you're not good at what you do but to
be honest, the banter is a little bit old-school, know what I mean?
I mean, me and Kat, we've got more of a relaxed approach -
we let 'em look, try on, then - bosh.
That's the first sign of madness.
Talking to yourself.
Alfie! If you lose me my pitch, I will lose you something else.
Ah, sweetheart - that won't happen. Let me make it up to you.
Want a cup of tea and a sticky bun? Won't be long.
Last night meant something, you told me you loved me.
Yeah. But you didn't say it back, did you?
So I thought it was a goodbye.
And the other thing is, I've got TJ back on track now.
-So I might as well just go.
-My mum's getting her results today.
Right, is that Dot's toothbrush?
Oh, hello, Carol.
-I thought you were at work, Dot?
I was. I popped out to get a pint of milk
and realised I'd left my purse at home.
Is that my toothbrush?
-She was with Charlie?
Don't you think that's weird?
She's spent the morning with someone she hardly knows rather than her own daughter.
-Well, he is easy on the eye.
-Not everything's a joke, you know.
Oh, you sound like Tosh.
Yeah, well. Maybe she's got a point sometimes.
So, you came round here to use my bathroom, did you?
Look, as I said before, Dot, our house, it's like a mad house.
But that don't explain why you've got hold of my toothbrush.
You ain't been using it, have you?
Let's just tell her the truth.
Well, that would be nice.
-Carol's doing a DNA test.
-You. I just need to be sure, Dot.
That I'm really your grandson.
We were talking about it last night and it makes sense.
-So you think I'm silly, do you?
-Er...it was my idea.
Oh, don't make excuses for her, Charlie.
So you think I'm so stupid I can't judge character?
No, of course not.
But sometimes, you want things to be true so much that...
it blinds you to what is actually going on.
And you'd know all about that, would you?
Look. It's human, it's natural. You know, we all get lonely.
Things aren't clear, we can't always see things.
I ain't the one what can't see, Carol.
Do you think it's a coincidence that this happens to be the day
that you get your results?
You know what, don't be ridiculous. I mean, it's nothing to do with that.
-And anyway, I'm completely fine with that.
Give me that here.
OK, well, let's do it properly.
OK, you're going to have to rub it inside your cheek.
Couple of times, really hard.
I really don't want this to be bad news, Dot.
It won't be.
And I hope it ain't for you, either.
Aleks! Aleks! Can I have a word, please?
I love you English! Always so eloquent.
It's about Kat's pitch.
What is it?
Well, you know, she's busy looking after the twins and it's a lot
for Bianca to handle on her own, so I thought, maybe, I could step in...
-Listen, Aleks, I know we've had our differences, OK,
but listen, man to man, please - just cut me a bit of slack.
OK? I promise to work hard, please just be fair, yeah?
I remember being very fair to you. And what happened?
-Oh, yeah - you blew it.
-No, no, no! I left you a voice mail!
Aleks, you need me on this market, OK?
Cos I'm a rare breed round here - I am proper East End.
You mean, unlike me? Well, here's the news - a Latvian is in charge!
Is that right? It's people like you that are tearing the heart out of this area.
You know what you are - nothing but a selfish scumbag who
cheats on his family and swaggers round like he's king of the world.
Well, let me tell you something, sunshine, all right? This ain't your country.
-So why don't you just go home!
-What did you say?
You heard what I said! You heard what I said!
-Whoa, whoa, whoa! Slow down.
Bit strong, ain't it? Not like you, Alf.
Aleks! I didn't mean a word of that. I am so sorry.
Just, heat of the moment. I didn't mean anything by it.
I'm sorry. I didn't mean it.
Oh. Hello again.
Hello. It's Karen, isn't it?
Yeah. Course. Sorry. How are you?
I don't know. That's why I'm here.
Sorry, I'm just sick of everybody asking me that question.
I'm in the chapel all afternoon, if you want me to not ask you again!
Be nice to catch up.
Do you think she'll mind that we're here?
I don't care if she does. She needs us.
Why? Do you think it's still there?
Have fun at the party.
And if he doesn't like your hair, he's an idiot.
All right, Dean...o.
Look at you, you dark horse.
Come in, have a look, if you like.
What do you reckon?
Not bad for a goofy teenager.
So listen, the funny thing is -
you're looking at the best colourist in London.
And I can cut and all, so...
I'm giving you the chance to use my skills.
You're looking for a job?
I work hard and I'm good with customers.
Seriously! I know that it's hard to believe
but I have finally got my gob under control.
I'll even do a trial for free.
Tell you what, I've got a customer coming in five for a colour.
Let's give it a go.
Yeah. Yeah. That's me.
Come on, then.
I just want to be there for 'em, you know?
Step up, be reliable, solid. Be the bloke she wants.
-Mick, you know what I'm talking about, don't you?
-I hear you, Alf. I hear you.
Listen, I've got a china
who goes bandy for old bangers like yours.
-We are talking about my Capri, aren't we?
He could give you a naughty little price for it.
How do you know she's even for sale?
Just saying, my L, she wouldn't stand for a motor like that, not with three kids.
-Where is Linda?
-Oh, she's at the mother-in-law's. She's sick and that, so...
Good to give the old ear holes a rest once in a while.
Although I dunno how I'm going to run a barbecue and a pub at the same time.
But enough about my drama, so I'll give that mug...
sorry, mate of mine...a call, yeah?
The scars seem to be healing nicely. Any tenderness?
Just a little bit in my right armpit.
That's normal. Painkillers should help.
It's important you take enough to make the exercises comfortable.
-Take your time.
-You all right, Mum?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm coming.
-What's the verdict, then, Doctor? Have you got it all out or what?
No. It's fine. It's natural that you'd be anxious.
The good news is that we have removed all of the cancer.
The breast contained two separate cancers,
and they had shrunk considerably as a result of the chemotherapy.
Sorry...but what does that mean?
It means it's gone...right?
I don't believe this.
Can you just say that...that bit again, please?
-So...no more chemo?
Only one of your lymph nodes tested positive for cancer
so we're happy that we've removed it all.
And as your cancer wasn't sensitive to hormones
there's no need for any further treatment.
Do I have to come back for check-ups?
You'll need to come in for an annual check up,
and do you have an appointment for the breast prosthesis clinic?
Yeah, they'll give you some silicone boobs to put in your bra.
-Just to make it look a bit...
We'll come, eh? We can have some! Sorry, I am only joking.
We can have a laugh, can't we?
I mean, we can say what we want now, can't we?!
The cancer's gone.
You've beat this.
-Are you happy?
If you just come over here, Nadine'll take care of you.
-Really good work.
-So I will keep you in mind.
-Yeah, I've just taken on Lola Pearce,
so there are no jobs going at the moment.
-Are you serious?
-But as soon as one comes up, I'll give you an interview.
An interview? I thought we were mates.
We are mates, but I'm running a business here, Stace.
No! No, don't "Stace" me, all right?
Just cos you've landed on your feet for five minutes,
it doesn't mean you're better than me. You might have a poncey salon,
but to me you're still Dean with the O.
-There's me thinking you'd lost your mouth.
Yeah, well, I told you, didn't I?
That was Carol.
-Her check-up was all right.
-Good. That's good news.
Charlie, you know I trust you, don't you?
But if there's anything you want to tell me...
you know, anything at all, I'd be happy to listen.
-They're coming, they're coming, they're coming, they're coming.
-I'm so excited.
-Is that for me?
-Yeah, it wasn't expensive.
I'm the luckiest nan in the world.
-Right, come on, you lot, shall we get stuck in?
-Looks lovely, doesn't it, eh?
-Right, who's having what?
How's that? Been waiting for this all day.
I told you I'd come, didn't I?
You're the prettiest mummy on the gates.
-Will you be there tomorrow?
-Yeah, and the day after that.
-And the day after that?
Yes! Every day.
-Thanks for coming over.
Kat's asleep and I just got to pop out.
Oh, yeah, course, it's no problem.
My friend Kara's got a cat called Billy
and it's got a patch on his eye like a pirate.
Well, that's really cool, ain't it?
It's nice for Lily to have her Auntie Whit so close.
-Thanks, Terry, they're lovely.
-Nah, it's nothing.
-Just glad you got the good news.
-Hedging your bets, were you?
-Why don't you stay and have a drink?
-No, I can't, thanks.
-Yes, you can.
-No, I've got more packing to do.
-Milton Keynes, eh?
-We'll be really sad to see you go, won't we, Mum?
-You got family there?
-Terry's a bit busy now. You've got to go.
Do you want me to see you out?
No, I'll see myself out. Thanks. I'll see you later.
Yeah, see you, Terry.
He is such a nice man.
What a sweet thing to do, don't you think, Mum?
-Do you fancy him or something, Sonia?
-Do me a favour.
Right, what do you want to do? We can watch a DVD. We could go over The Vic to celebrate?
-I don't know.
-You think I made a mistake, letting him go?
-I ain't said nothing!
Didn't have to, it's the way you said that. It's as if you've been talking about it behind my back.
The thing is with you, you don't appreciate what you got until you've driven it away.
-Now today is about Mummy, so...
-I'm just feeling a bit tired actually.
-So hanging on to something you hate's the way to go, is it, Sonia?
-What's the point?
-Nothing I say's going to change what you do, is it?
-Is that right?
-Yeah, cos you're scared.
-Oh, I'm scared?
-Cos you're just going to carry on trudging backwards and forwards to work,
sitting on the sofa, watching telly while Martin's out there doing exactly what he likes.
-And you're doing exactly the same, but in this house.
-Least my way's honest.
-Lying to yourself's honest?
-Shut up, will you?! The both of you!
-See what you've done now?
What do you mean, what I've done?
I've worked here before, so I know the ropes and I'm reliable.
And, before you say anything, I know you probably think
I've got a screw loose after last time,
but I will be the best barmaid you've ever had.
See, the thing is, Stace, this is like a family-run business
and we've got a pretty big one of them, so I'm a little bit snookered, do you know what I mean?
I'll clean. Anything.
The old woman does that when she's here. I'm sorry.
Anything comes up,
I promise you'll be the first to know, all right, babe?
All right, thanks.
You all right, Stace?
-What're you doing?
-Trying to find a job,
but it turns out that no-one wants to employ an ex-jailbird.
But I'm willing to work really hard and get my head down,
I've just got to convince someone to give me a chance.
Well, you just have.
I need someone to come and work with me at the car lot.
You're offering me a job?
Stace, I hope you ain't this slow with the customers.
Hang on a minute, I haven't said yes yet.
You ain't said no, either, have you?
Didn't make your million then?
I wanted to make it so right for you, Kat, I really did, so badly.
Then let me go to work.
We need more than my benefits to keep our heads above water.
Alfie, I don't mind, honestly,
just as long as you're here for the boys.
I've been selfish, haven't I, little man? Yeah?
You know what this is, Ernie, though?
This is a classic 1983 Ford Capri.
And when you and your brother are about 17 years of age,
I'm going to teach you how to drive one of these.
Yeah, you'll be doing wheel spins
and tearing it all up around Albert Square, eh?
Smell that? That's the smell of proper leather, that is.
Yeah. Sadly, though, it's got to go to a new home.
It's all right. We don't need it.
Got a visitor.
Erm, I got your text.
Look, I just wanted to say, in person,
that I just think it's really brilliant news about your mum.
-It's just flippin' brilliant.
I know. Funny thing is, we had a row when we came home.
Well, me and B did, anyway.
I'm so fed up of doing the right thing all the time,
do you know that?
I'm fed up of being sensible Sonia, the doormat.
I'm just fed up, Tina.
-I'm really sorry for snapping at you earlier.
I miss you.
I miss you, too.
-Can we be friends again? Like, proper friends?
But you'd better not have given up on being sensible completely,
cos I need someone to keep me in check.
And what's Tosh going to say?
-She ain't here, is she?
Oh, excuse me, sorry, Chris... Have you seen Chris?
-He's the vicar. Only I've looked in the chapel and he's...
You looking for me?
Not really, I was here earlier and I left my jacket, and so...
Which was really stupid, so I had to come back.
And I just thought that I'd...
-Was it bad news?
No, no, it's great news.
The cancer's gone, so, yeah...
everyone's really chuffed. You know, we're all...
It's all right.
Come on, why don't you have a seat?
I know, it doesn't make sense, does it?
I just feel so...
I'm supposed to have beaten it, won the battle.
So how come it doesn't mean anything to me?
I've... The cancer's gone...and what have I got?
Two ugly scars where my breasts used to be and...
..an empty diary.
-You're not alone, you know, Carol.
-Oh, right, Him, Her.
No. I meant there are plenty of others who feel like you
after they've finished their treatment.
You know, it knocks you for six
and you're just supposed to pick up where you left off?
Sorry, it doesn't happen like that.
Do you know? The awful thing is that when he said it was over,
that my treatment was finished,
I didn't have to come back...
..I felt disappointed.
And there was... There's nothing left to fight, what is there? What's left?
How selfish is that when my children have been there for me?
And my grandchildren...
Stop feeling guilty, Carol. You're allowed to say these things.
-To feel them.
-Am I? Do you not want to check with God first?
Yeah, I instant messaged him earlier.
You know, for someone who claims to be a dyed-in-the-wool atheist
you mention the big guy quite a lot.
You don't have to open it, use it as a doorstop if you like,
but if you ever feel like giving it a read,
even if it's just to confirm what you already know, then it's yours.
You all right?
Listen, I'm not saying that I've thought this through or anything,
or even it's the right thing...
..but what if...?
-What if it was? I mean, imagine that.
Well, cos the point is, I have been listening to you...
and I've been taking on everything that you've been saying,
and it's not often that anyone will ever hear me say this,
-You do need to put your family first,
and I need to do the same with mine. I mean, what's the alternative?
I'll be 80 years old, sat on the sofa in my slippers,
gossiping to my sister all night?
I've already told you, I can't stay round here.
That's not what I'm saying.
I love you, don't I?
And I want your family to...to be our family.
And I want us all to move to Milton Keynes together.
What else am I supposed to do?
I need the money, don't I, if me and Lily are going to live.
I don't like it. I don't trust him.
Oh, Kat, that was years ago. What, people can't change?
He was knocking off Lucy Beale, you know. Just before she died.
Right. Sign's up. You watch - there'll be a queue for that beauty. You wait and see.
-I'm having a shower.
-Hold on, Kat - what are you doing?
Bianca just called. She wants me on the stall all day.
I thought it was just the afternoon. I've got things I need to do.
You think I want to be working? One of us has to, or we're going to be homeless.
Yes, I know. But once we sell the Capri it'll all be sweet. OK?
Did you get a chance to do me that reference?
-So I can start applying for jobs in Bolton.
-Yeah, I'll do it this morning.
-Well, we'll be off soon.
Do you mind if I drink this first?
There's quite a lot of stuff here. We'll have to go through it.
-Old baby clothes of Lexi's.
-I thought we could give some to Beth.
Is that a problem?
Don't forget my reference.
Wouldn't dream of it.
You don't have to keep checking up on me.
I just thought I'd pop round before work and have a cup of tea with you.
Look, come on, Tiff, we've got to get going.
Come on, I'll walk you to the bus. And you, Whit. Let's all go together.
Look, Nan, this just came for you.
You hate walking to the bus.
No, I don't.
Can't I even walk my own family to the bus now?
What is she like?
-See you later.
There's something definitely going on there.
Right, if you untangle this lot,
and then whack it out the front.
-Got that barbecue this afternoon, ain't we?
-Oh, we're still doing that, then?
Yeah, why wouldn't we be?
I thought it was... more Linda's thing.
Well, don't matter whose idea it was, does it?
As long as it gets the punters in.
-Once you've done that, I've got a list of jobs for you.
-I've got to go to work.
-Can't you get Tosh to do it?
She's on a double. Have you not got three kids?
-What, all of them?
Didn't you hear what I just said? What time do you finish?
I don't know. Some time this afternoon.
Have fun with that bunting.
-All right, Teen.
-Mick. Your mate still interested in the motor?
Might want to get round here sharpish,
-I've put the sign up and that thing will fly out the door.
-Sure you want to sell it?
Ain't got much choice, have I?
Anyway, got a big day ahead.
Jobcentre, flog the car,
get back here to stop you burning the burgers.
-Catch you later, Mick.
-See you later.
All right, Tel...
-Oh, he's gone to get some sweets.
-Keep your eye on these for me?
What does she mean, keep your eye on these?
Uh...just get in the cab, please?
-We're going to be late for school.
-Your mum's signed you off sick,
-so you ain't gotta worry about that.
I promise your mum will explain. Can you just get in the cab?
Please? You an' all, Whit, come on.
Where are we going?
-To the zoo.
-Yeah. It's going to be amazing. Newborn baby elephant.
-Everything. So come on. Jump in.
-All right! Yes!
There's no baby elephant, is there?
Bianca will explain on the way. Can you please just get in the cab?
BABY CRYING ON MONITOR
She won't go down?
No, I was just about to go back up.
Well, no, your midwife'll be here in a bit to see you,
so get some earplugs in and have a lie down while you can, eh?
The baby whisperer. He'll get her off, don't worry about that.
Right, what do you want me to do?
-Um, there's dishes.
-I'll start with that.
Oh, right - that box is full of baby clothes,
so when you've had a rest, have a look through it, yeah?
Come on. Upstairs. Earplugs.
We'll bring her in if she needs you, OK?
So Peter just shafts Lola but that means nothing to Phil.
He's giving away Lexi's clothes. And he still ain't done that reference.
Do you think maybe he's dragging his feet on the reference
cos he's going to miss you?
-Don't be stupid.
-And maybe you're overreacting just a little bit
because you're going to miss him too?
So what if I am? He's a miserable old git.
I want to knock him out most of the time but...
..since Dad, no-one's ever really been there for me. So yeah.
I might miss him. But there's no reason for him to be an idiot about it, is there?
What's she doing here?
-Thank you. Is your dad enjoying his trip?
Yeah. I guess.
At last. She's a determined one, that one.
I won't take up too much time.
I was just in the area and I wanted to apologise in person
for the confusion last week about the man on the bus.
-It's all right.
-No, it's not.
Look, I know how difficult and emotional this whole process is for you,
without us making it harder.
But we have had another development and this time we're more certain.
What do you mean, more certain?
That's unfortunately all I can say at the moment.
I'm sorry, but I'm sure you understand.
OK. Thank you.
I'll see you soon.
Sounds like good news.
Ooh, look at it.
Come on then, out you get.
Why are we in Milton Keynes?
I thought we was going to the zoo.
-To be honest, me and Terry are back together.
We've been stuck in the car with you for two hours.
All your little looks. We did notice. We're not stupid.
About time too.
And so you want to move here, do you?
He's moving here, you're back together, you've brought us
here to look at this house. Am I right?
-Agent says it's free from next week, so we can move in when we like.
-Just look at the house.
-What's the point? We're not moving.
Look, we're here now. Just have a look at the house.
Oh, listen to that purring like a kitten.
This is the 1983 classic -
may I emphasise the word "classic" - Ford Capri.
The car we promised ourselves back in the glory days.
-Or so they used to say...
-What do you want for it?
Three and a half grand.
Seriously, I do love this motor but now I've got three kids,
I've got to find something a bit sensible.
Yeah, yeah. OK... look, I'll give you a ring, yeah?
Well, listen, Tony, I was hoping we could sort this out today.
Tell you what. I'll knock £500 off.
Call it 3K, and you can drive it away right now.
I've got to talk to the wife. Yeah?
OK, listen, a friend of Mick's is a friend of mine -
I'm robbing myself here, but two-and a-half K and it's all yours...
Listen, look... I said, you know, I'll give you a call.
Yeah. All right.
Tony, you've got the number. Just give me a shout.
Not a problem, all right.
Alfie. He's crying again.
Darling, I've got one more job.
I can't. I've got things to do.
Just take Tommy to daycare. I'll look after the twins.
It'll be fine.
All right - don't want to buy a classic Capri, do you?
So, how'd you go?
Would I get my own room?
-Would I be the boss of it?
Which one's Nan's room?
Nanny would probably be staying in London.
It's a lovely house though, innit, eh? Big. Loads of space.
So when did you want to move?
I dunno. We'd have to speak to your school
and then talk to Nan...
I'll see you inside.
Come on. Come and sit down.
I know this is fast.
It's a lot to take in.
It's a big move. I do understand that.
Look, lay back.
When was the last time you done that in London, eh?
Laid on the grass. Have to be a park, wouldn't it?
Footballs being kicked in your head, dog poo...
cyclists, and them horrible stinky barbecues.
This would all be ours.
Could I paint my room pink?
Course you can.
Then I think I could get used to it.
You are such a good girl. And you?
I love you so much.
Right, you two - go on, go up to Terry and check out that loft.
-There's a loft?
We ain't moving.
Mr Moon. Sorry to keep you waiting.
Not a problem. Thanks for seeing me.
Let's have a look, shall we?
When did she say those results were arriving?
You was the one what spoke to her, as I far as I recall.
Carol, hi, come in.
All right, Dot.
"Most likely relationship is grandparent/grandchild".
Right. Well, I'll leave you to it, then.
Are you all right, Carol?
Yeah. No, I'm fine.
So what was all that talk about, about having your family around you?
Don't you mean that no more?
Well, you would have your family around you, Whit. But they would just be round here.
What about Lee, and Lily?
B, you can't say lie on the grass and forget about everyone and everything.
No...it's not that far, Whit.
Look, your nan being ill...
it's just made me realise you don't get many chances to make things better.
This is our chance.
Our chance to just get away from something that's just...
It's just hard.
Just a chance to make a better life.
And if we don't take it,
I'm not sure we're going to get it again.
So is this...
..is Terry what you really want?
-So why did you break up with him, then?
-Because I was terrified.
Terrified of taking a risk with another bloke?
Terrified of getting hurt?
I just couldn't face that again.
But I do trust him.
I didn't think I'd trust anyone again after Tony.
This is moving on.
Do you know how important that is?
Ricky's moved on,
and I want to do that with Terry.
And having someone that's good to me, like he is...
..well, you know what that means.
Look, I understand if you don't want to come. But I think...
no, I know, I KNOW this is the best thing for our family.
Well, maybe I can give it a go.
But if I hate it, I'm going back to London.
All right. Whit?
Thank you so much.
Thank you so much!
Hey, shh-shh, be a good boy...
sorry about this.
-Thank you. Here you go.
There's a good boy. Here you go.
So, how we looking?
Not great, Mr Moon.
Based on these figures, it's difficult
to approve you for a loan of this size.
That's OK. We can cut it down.
We can cut down the size, that doesn't. We can talk about it, yeah?
I don't think we'll be able to approve you for a loan of any size.
It would be what we call an unacceptable risk.
I don't understand. What does that mean?
It means that, looking at your account,
we don't think you'll be able to repay.
See, there must be some confusion about me filling in the form.
You see, my wife, she works on a stall in the market.
So she deals with cash.
-And that's probably why it didn't show up on the computer.
-I'm sorry, Mr Moon.
I get a fair bit coming in, from time to time.
We're just going through a rough patch at the moment, you know.
Ask any of my mates. If I get loans, I always pay back my debts.
Listen, Ernie, please just give me a break here! Be a good boy.
Daddy's here, Daddy's here...
Listen, I'm not looking for a hand-out,
I'm just looking for some help.
OK. We're about to get evicted.
And work is really hard to come by.
I know how hard it can be.
Really? Somehow I don't think so.
Look at you, sitting here. You've got a job.
Money in your pocket, you've got a home,
kids with a roof over their head.
I've got nothing right now!
Because I am worthless.
What am I supposed to do, eh?
What am I supposed to do?
Please. I'm just looking for some help.
Please help me, yeah?
Please help me.
Hey. Ain't you got work to get through?
Just came back to grab the paperwork for that Corsa. How's Beth?
-Yeah. Great little sleeper once you get her down.
That's good. Did I see the police go in while you were there?
-Have they got something, or...?
-Well, cos I want to see them catch him.
-The sooner the better.
-They've got a lead on the bloke on the bus apparently.
I don't know what, but something's happening.
Good. Hope they catch him.
-Linda ordered them.
-Mick don't actually think she's going to turn up, does he?
Well, this barbecue thing's her idea.
-Yeah, but...does he?
-I'll see you out there.
It's just a job?
Yeah. What else would it be?
Stace. It was a long time ago.
Were you seeing Lucy Beale?
Before she died. Were you seeing her?
Well, what do you want me to say? Yeah, I was.
-It was a mistake, Stace. We all make 'em.
-Not over and over again, Max.
Yes, all right, I get it. I'm the one who's got to live with it, so yeah, I get it.
If you don't want the job, fair enough. Don't take it.
Just trying to give you a chance, that's all.
If you don't want to give me one, you wouldn't be the only one round here.
When can I start?
I'll see you Monday.
-Why don't we just go tonight? What are we waiting for?
-Well, we can't.
-Well, because I haven't packed. Because we have nowhere to stay.
I want to have dinner with Dad before we go.
Jay, there's a million reasons. I don't understand why all of a sudden you're so keen?
Because I just want us to get away, start our new life as quick as possible.
That's really sweet.
Well, I suppose we could go up for the weekend, you know, check it out.
See, that sounds perfect.
-I love you.
-And I love you.
There you go. Cheers, darling.
There's Mummy. Daddy'll do a sharp right.
How have they been?
Yeah. All right. Ernie's a bit grizzly, but no change there.
-They've done some good poos.
You been to the bank?
Yes, I have been to the bank...
and I have managed to secure a loan.
-Not a big one. Enough to tide us over,
just to put a down payment for a month on a flat, you know.
-How did you manage it?
-Kat, our finances are very impressive.
-No. Come on.
-All right, I did the usual - you know, bended knee,
-shed a few tears, you know what I'm like.
-The old Alfie Moon magic.
-There you go.
Why didn't you tell me you were trying for it?
Well, I was going to tell you, it was going to be a surprise,
-but I didn't know you'd find the toy.
-It's brilliant. It's a relief, ain't it?
Not to worry about money for once.
Tell me about it. It's a huge relief.
-To be honest I had my doubts.
I thought selling the car was the only idea you had.
But you've really pulled it out of the bag.
Go on, go and celebrate. The twins can stay here.
-No, no, no, I'm fine.
-Go have a few beers at Mick's barbecue. If I need you, I'll call you. Go on.
See you later.
I love you.
Why wouldn't you?
-Cheers. I'm not going to stay for long, all right?
-All right. It's pretty clear why you're here.
-Yeah. Don't worry. I'll keep your secret.
-Carol. I came to see if you were OK.
Oh...yeah, I am. Thanks.
Anything I can do to help?
No. No, thanks, I've got plenty of people around.
-Cos that's all that matters, isn't it?
He gives it all that this morning about helping us, and look, he's useless.
-Oi, wind your neck in!
-Coming from a geezer who can't light a fire?
Just wait. Be patient, be patient.
Did you get all that sorted this morning?
Yeah. Yeah, yeah...
Tony's going to buy your Capri, is he?
Yeah. He will. He loved it.
There you go. Look at that, look.
Everything he touches. Look.
Oh, hello, Teen. Thanks for your help today. You've been amazing.
I've been working all day. I'm exhausted.
-From working in a caff?
-Here, look, someone with a proper job.
Someone who saves lives. Don't hear her moaning, do you? Proper little hero.
She spends most of her shift sitting there playing cards.
Er, not today. Big shout. Some bloke burnt his house down.
-What? On purpose?
-Yeah. Insurance, innit.
-Did he get away with it?
-I dunno. It only happened this morning!
But in general though. Do they get away with it?
Yeah, I suppose some scumbags do, yeah.
Here's your reference.
Don't open it now. Don't want you getting a big head.
-Thanks a lot.
-Sorry it took so long.
Nah, don't be silly. Listen, thanks again.
-I appreciate it.
-Put it somewhere safe.
-I will. We're just going to nip back quick. All right?
If people only knew what a softy you really are...
-But they'll never find out, will they?
-No. They never will.
See! I told you he loves you.
Yeah. All right... Anyway, come on, we'd best get going.
Well, aren't you going to do something nice for him?
-Well, to thank him for the reference.
And then we'll go, yeah?
Right. Come on, then.
-You all right, Max?
-So Stacey took the job?
That's great. I appreciate you looking after her.
-That's all right. It's no big deal.
-Well, it is to her. And to us.
Well, my pleasure.
Oh, Max, one more thing.
You touch her, you even think about touching her, I'll cut it off.
-What have they got to eat out there?
-Burgers, I think.
-Where've you all been?
-We're moving there!
Tiff. Why don't you go upstairs with Whitney?
Yeah? And Morgan, you go as well.
Yeah, come on.
Well, I was going to say something but...you know what,
we just thought it'd be best if we had a fresh start.
Bit more space, good schools. We've found a house.
Uh, wait a minute. Who's we?
Me and Terry.
You're actually serious about this?
Yes. I am. Yeah. We are.
Milton Keynes? Of all the stupid ideas you've had,
-Do you know what, Sonia, I've just walked in here
and told you something nice.
For once. And I've got a bloke that I actually love...
-You dumped him!
-We've found a brilliant house.
The kids are really excited, they're on board, so everything's perfect. But for once!
No, you cannot stand me to be happy, can you, Sonia?
Mum had cancer. You can't just move away.
HAD cancer, Sonia. Had. It's gone now. She's fine. OK.
All right. I'm still here.
And what do you think about all this?
Not my decision, is it? She can do what she wants.
Do you know, this is typical of you.
As long as you get what you want.
Just an idea, Phil. If you need someone.
I've looked after the pub, so looking after the caff will be a walk in the park.
-Yeah. We're all right for staff at the moment, thanks.
-Ian, a few weeks ago, said there might be something.
-Yeah? Well, there ain't.
-Get involved with that mustard.
-Got to have a bit of mustard.
-Course you have.
-Little bit of tom.
-Get that down you.
-Moon. All right, son?
-This is a blinding day, innit?
It's one of those days where you have a few ideas
-and it all comes together.
-You think something like this just comes together?
-It's one of those days for me. Ten out of ten.
See you over there.
I can take it from here.
Why don't you go get yourself a pint?
Here. For helping me with the barbecue.
Mick, Mick, I'm not a charity case.
I did this cos you're my mate, I had fun.
All right, till you sell the Capri? Just something to tide you over.
-Mick, Mick, stop, stop. I don't need your money. Or your beer. All right?
-Listen, I'm sorry, all right?
-I lied to her.
I lied to her, I told her that I'd got a loan from the bank.
-Because, Mick, for once, for once,
I wanted to be the bloke that made things better.
All right? But I could see it in her eyes.
She wanted to go straight back to work after giving birth
because she didn't think I had it in me to take care of my family.
-And you know something? She's right.
-Listen, there's other banks.
What're you talking about?
You know as well as I do they'll all say the same thing.
Got nowhere to live, no money, you know...
I can't even sell this car right now.
I'm all out of options.
Tickets. For Bolton-Watford. Next year. At Bolton.
We're heading off for the weekend so thought I'd get this sorted before I left.
You want me to go all the way to Bolton to watch 'em play Watford?
Well, you don't have to. It was just an idea.
Nah, it's a good idea. Why not.
-But don't expect me to sing their songs, yeah.
Listen to him. A massive northern bloke in a T-shirt wants him to sing, he'll sing.
All right, well, thanks anyway, yeah?
Right. Best get going. Got to get to Euston.
-Have a nice time.
-Yeah. See ya later.
-See you later.
We've just got a few questions to ask you. At the station.
