I've made you some toast.
I'm popping over to Ian's before work. Enjoy your day off.
-Thought you said he seemed better.
-Yeah, he did.
Well, then, don't fuss.
-You're meeting a wine supplier this morning, right?
Well, take Ian. Hide your concern with a bit of business.
You know, if I didn't know you better, I'd say you care.
Good job you do, then, ain't it?
-See you later, babe.
-See you later.
So, what are you doing today, then?
I dunno. Park, the usual.
-Who's that, then?
Why are you sitting there grinning like an idiot?
She's asked me out for a drink later.
You know, I knew I was getting the signs.
All that hanging around longer, sending more texts. And look...
look. Not one kiss, but two. Two!
Yeah, well, two kisses don't mean nothing, Pops.
No offence, Lo, but you really wouldn't understand.
I just don't think you should read too much into it, that's all.
I know Honey. Something's changed.
Play my cards right and you never know.
Listen, you wouldn't mind looking after the kids for a bit, would you?
-I might treat myself to a new shirt.
-No! Pops, I need to...
-I'll take that as a yes, then, shall I?
-Won't be long.
What are you doing, up and ready? Where are you going?
Off for a spa day and then afternoon tea at the Ritz.
You're not going to work, are you?
-So, just pretend like nothing's happened?
-No, of course not.
But I'm too old for full-blown heartbreak, Bianca.
David's gone and it was my decision.
Well, wish I could just brush it under the carpet.
-I'm just getting on with things.
-You can see what a mess the kids are.
I've been trying to phone him. You know there's no answer?
I'm sorry. I know it's hard on all of you.
But I've done the right thing, I know I have.
It was an international ring tone, so who knows where he is now?
Well, that don't really make no difference, does it?
Right. Let's get some light in, shall we?
Yeah, I was... I was going to have a tidy up in a bit.
You know it's next Thursday, don't you?
Jake's plea hearing.
I don't know if I can face it.
Sit there and watch him deny it.
You don't have to go, do you?
Yeah, I do. I have to, don't I?
If not for me, for Lucy. It's just doing my head in.
You need to get out, Ian.
I've got a tasting with a wine merchant...
-and as you know your wines, I thought you might...
-He murders my daughter,
he dumps her on the common. All I'm asking is that he admits it,
that he has the decency to tell me why he did it.
I deserve that, don't I?
If it's any good, you might want to get some for Beales.
Come on. Come with me. It'll be a laugh.
I don't mean a laugh.
Oh, Ian, I...
I wish I could say something to help.
It's too late for that, Sharon.
You're joking, right?
Yeah, yeah. Laters. I promise.
You know, I thought living with two girls would be a dream.
How wrong was I?
Not only are you a lesbian, but you are a messy lesbian.
Well, look at this place!
No wonder we can't find anyone to move in with us.
Yeah, no-one's viewed the place. It's hardly our fault.
-This is a rubbish dump.
-Look, the fact that people think
someone was murdered here is probably a bit more worrying
-than a few dirty dishes.
-No, no, no, no, no. The landlord wouldn't be able
to rent this room if that was true.
If we can't find anyone soon, I'll raise your rent.
Oh, Patrick, could I grab Denise's number?
I've just been at Ian's and he's not doing too good.
I think he needs her.
And so does Chelsea. I mean, she's not too well.
I'm sure Denise would phone him.
They're talking. Excuse me, dear. Bye.
We really can't stretch to any more.
-We'll have to move out.
-It'll be fine.
Knew I shouldn't have spent all that money on that dress I bought for the work ball.
-Maybe I should take it back.
-You're joking, right? It's tomorrow.
-I've got time.
-Look, if your lot win Team of the Year Award,
you can't collect it looking like a tramp, can you?
We'll sort it. All right? I promise.
Billy! Step away from the shirt.
Right. So, Aleks wants to take me out for a meal tonight.
-I'm wondering if you would babysit.
-I can't, Rox, because, you see,
I am going out with Honey.
-Out, out? As in a date?
Get in, Billy boy! Where are you taking her?
Dunno. Couple of drinks in the Vic, I suppose.
Followed by a romantic home-cooked meal for two, yeah?
You've got to make her feel special.
You've got to wine her and dine her.
You've got to show her what she's been missing.
Don't worry, I'll ask Lola to look after Amy.
You, Billy, you need to get buying some candles, don't you?
-Yeah. I'll see you later.
DOOR SLAMS Phil?
-Have you seen my phone?
-'..into the first corner...'
How was Ian?
Well, Jake's plea hearing's been set for next Thursday.
He's a mess.
That's understandable, isn't it?
If only he'd have the guts to come clean, not put Ian through all this.
That's never going to happen, is it?
You know, if I went to see him...
and told him what his lies were doing to Ian...
I mean, he's a dad, Phil.
-I just want to help him.
-Just leave Jake be.
He'll get a longer sentence when they find him guilty.
I mean, if you want to help Ian, fine. But don't waste your time
on that lying scum. He's never going to give you what you want.
-See you later.
-See you later.
Hello. I'd like to arrange a visit with Jake Stone, please.
-What's the matter?
-I bought Mick a gorgeous - and I mean gorgeous -
pink jumper and guess who's gone and nicked it?
That's right. Your selfish idiot of a dad.
Stretched the hell out of it.
And let's face it, pink is definitely not his colour.
Crusty old lobster is what he looks like.
-Yeah, well, she didn't think about how we might feel about him going, did she?
-Bianca, give her a break.
-She can't stay with him for you and the kids.
-It's not just that, Sonia. She's ill.
He was amazing at looking after her.
I've got work, the kids. I can't look after her like that.
And how are we going to make the rent now he's gone?
I hate to hassle but Mr Shirov's on my back about late payments
and he's starting this new fine system.
Tamwar, just tell him to fine me. I ain't got no money, all right?
Yeah, OK. Well, not now. But you'll have to pay by Friday.
Can't afford to sit about chatting. Bills aren't going to take care
of themselves, despite what Mum might think.
-Why can't you do the bottling up?
-Cos I did it yesterday.
Oh, yeah, for the first time in ages.
-Have you two heard yourselves recently?
-Why don't you do one?
Oh, no, you can't, can you? Cos you're tagged.
Have they given you a special certificate or something
to say you're the oldest pensioner with an ASBO?
Tried to call you. Boiler's on the blink.
"Hello, Grandad. How are you feeling? Can I buy you a pint?"
It's not midday yet.
You as well! Where did this midday rule come from?
-You all right, Dean?
-Yeah. Have you got a number I can call?
'Course he's got a number. He's lived there for decades.
-I do you a favour and this is how you repay me.
-There's no hot water.
I don't want you ringing the council, telling them I'm subletting.
-Fantastic. I'll fix it myself.
-Now, just a minute.
We've got business to discuss.
That salon ain't going to open himself.
Hi. Be with you in a minute, darling.
There you go. Thank you.
-You're really overdoing it, you know?
-How long have you had that on your face?
-That cold sore.
Did you want a drink?
Have you got any mouth ulcers? Is your nausea any worse?
-I'm all right.
-I've just spoken to Bianca out there.
She's angry, I know she is. David's her dad.
It's not just about him, Mum. She's worried
-about money, you, the kids.
-Yeah, we'll manage. We'll muddle through.
We always have done.
You look really tired. I'm coming over tonight
to cook you dinner, all right? No arguments.
All right. As long as it's not fish.
I'm off that at the moment.
Wine rep's been outside the Albert for ages.
Sharon got a day off, has she?
Hey, Phil. Phil. Phil.
What do you reckon?
-Don't be daft. For my date...
with Honey. She's asked me out.
-Probably wants to ask you a favour.
-Hey, hey. Phil, people do get back together, you know?
-I mean, look at you and Sharon.
-With the greatest respect, Billy,
please don't compare yourselves to me and Sharon.
Well, watch this space, that's all I'm saying.
Hard at work?
So, I've managed to blag some weekend work.
Get us some extra cash.
I'll ask Mick, but I'm not sure there's any spare shifts going.
If you know of anyone that needs a room, will you let us know?
-We ain't fussy.
-Er, we're a bit fussy.
Dean? That's a great idea.
-Can he afford it?
-It's worth asking.
-Babe, I'm not sure.
-Got any other suggestions?
At least he ain't a random. I told you I'd fix this.
Oh, look at you. You're like the cat who got the cream.
Go on. Spill, then.
Got a date with the ex, ain't I?
The very hot, ex-model ex.
Yeah, I was wondering what you might be able to do for me, as it happens.
You know, bit of VIP treatment, table service, that sort of thing.
I was thinking, when she arrives, maybe you could bring over
a couple of glasses of champagne and a selection of nipples. Nibbles!
Smoked salmon or caviar?
-Course we will.
Right. Better get back to being a dad again for a bit
before my, you know, date.
Er, where are the keys to the car?
I'm picking up a dozen cases of red from the tasting this morning.
I thought I told you not to go and see Jake.
-What, do you think he's going to change his story and confess?
-It's worth a shot.
-Phil, Ian's my friend, I want to do what I can.
Well, maybe, but it's better than sitting around doing nothing.
But I'm coming with you.
So, you know how I've always said
that YOU are one of my favourite people?
-What do you want, Rox?
-Please will you babysit Amy tonight?
Aleks wants to take me out.
I'm sorry. I can't. I'm out with Peter and I can't let him down
-OK. Who's got Lexi?
No, he hasn't. Pops has got a hot date with Honey.
Oh, that's really nice, isn't it? One text from her and I'm dumped.
-That's really nice to see where his loyalties lie, eh?
-Hold on a minute. It's not like that.
He couldn't wipe the smile off his face, bless him.
-Yeah, that's cos she's stringing him along.
-Maybe she is interested.
No, she ain't, Roxy, all right? She just wants him sniffing round her
-cos of her ego.
-Listen to me. Listen to me.
I know they might not be the most obvious couple,
but she made him really happy and I have told him to go for it.
Yes, I have. Flowers, dinner, the lot.
What?! What is wrong with you? Everyone deserves
a bit of romance in their lives.
-Do I spy the little green-eyed monster?
Good. OK? Because she made him happy.
But he's happy now.
Lola, doesn't he deserve the chance to have what you and Peter have?
Yeah, but I just don't want her hurting him, that's all.
-Well, you need somewhere to live and we need a flatmate.
-£500 a month, plus one month's deposit.
-Oh, I've got the deposit covered.
450 and I might consider it.
Like you're going to get a better offer.
I'll see what I can do, all right?
But don't take too long or we'll find someone else.
Beggars can't be choosers.
I don't mean to sound ungrateful,
but why exactly are you here?
-Place looks like a bomb's hit it.
-Looks normal to me.
I need everything to look just right.
Oh, yeah? And why's that then?
Because Honey's going to come back after the pub.
-Bit of home cooked food, wine, candles...
-I thought you could.
-No, I can't.
-Oh, come on, Lo. Please!
I'm out with Peter, all right?
And anyway, it'll save you from looking like a complete fool,
-What's your problem?
Honey is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.
-She's kind, she's honest.
-Oh, she's just so perfect in every way,
isn't she, eh?
It's not difficult to see who's in and who's out.
-I know what she's going to do. She's going to worm her way
right back in and it's going to be, "Bye-bye, Lola."
What are you talking about?!
You and Lexi are everything to me.
You ain't going anywhere.
And even if you wanted to leave, I wouldn't let you.
-Anyway, I'd better get cooking. You'd better get begging.
For Roxy to babysit, right?
You're a dad.
At least have the decency to put Ian out of his misery.
I can't, because I didn't do it.
People like you turn my stomach.
You ain't even the guts to own up, have you?
I'm not admitting to something I didn't do.
So what, the Old Bill just plucked you out of thin air, did they?
Well, as far as I'm concerned, yeah.
You want to think yourself lucky you're locked up in here,
because if you weren't...
I don't even want to look at him.
Did she turn you down? Was that it?
So why were you with her?
I went to meet Lauren but she wasn't there.
And Lucy was?
I'd had a few drinks. Too many.
But I remember she was nice to me.
Then we got a taxi back to the Square.
The next thing I remember was waking up in my bed
with the worst hangover.
They found her blood in your flat.
I don't know how or why.
But all I know is it was nothing to do with me.
You obviously haven't heard the latest then?
The police said she definitely wasn't killed in my flat.
You have ten minutes to get ready.
Table's booked for seven but I want to have a couple of drinks first.
All right, 15.
OK. The thing is, I promised...
What is the thing? The thing isn't good, is it?
The thing is never good.
I owe them like a million favours, and they both really need to go out.
Who? What are you talking about?
I'm sorry, Aleks, OK? You just go out though.
I'm perfectly aware that a night in with four screaming kids is
not exactly appealing!
I'm not a violent drunk, I never have been.
Yeah, I get angry sometimes, but...
Yeah, you get angry, lash out...
Angry with myself, not with other people.
I had no reason to be angry with Lucy.
I barely even knew the girl.
Being an alcoholic makes you selfish,
it doesn't make you a bad person.
It makes you do bad things.
Yeah? How would you know?
You ever murdered anyone you barely even know?
I'm the one asking the questions.
I could hardly stand up, let alone kill someone.
I'm just an easy target.
Who's going to trust an alky with a patchy memory, eh?
Throw in a bit of forensic and bang!
Job done as far as they're concerned.
As far as everyone's concerned.
Come on, she was hardly Miss Popular!
I thought you said you didn't know her?
and I won't confess to something I didn't do.
Have you any idea how hard it is knowing that my little girl
thinks I'm a murderer?
That everyone out there's calling me scum for something I didn't do?
You want to help Ian, then believe me...
Whoever did this is still out there.
This is a waste of time.
I didn't do it.
Should you be working?
Not you as well. Just tired, Ian.
I heard about David.
Nice of him to say goodbye, wasn't it?
I don't think he was in a goodbye kind of mood.
Despite what everybody else thinks, it was the right decision.
For you, not him.
You were the only normal relationship he's ever had.
All the others, they've been affairs or conquests
or sordid thrills. I mean you, you were...
I was safe?
It might have been real.
That doesn't make it right.
We might not have been that close as half brothers,
but I think I'm going to miss having him around.
Well, I won't miss all the drama that comes with him.
You're not fooling me, Carol.
These floodgates are staying firmly shut, otherwise you'll all drown.
How about I finish up and you go home. Yeah?
Aw, bless him! He looks terrified.
Not so full of himself now, is he?
That shirt! What was he thinking?
-He said Honey was a model.
-Yeah, right! Hand model, maybe.
Sit down. Saved us a seat.
You need some more stock in there.
I do know how to cook a shepherd's pie, Mum.
You all right, sis? Lovely and peaceful in here.
Kids are upstairs.
I've just boiled the kettle. Make us a tea?
-Mum, do you want a mint one?
I've bought a lovely hot chocolate pudding for later if you fancy it.
Bit pricey, ain't it?
Don't want to splash the cash too much now Dad's gone.
..how was your day?
Rubbish. Donna is destroying the stall.
I mean, I am going to miss him,
but I will miss his contributions as well.
I mean he was keeping us afloat, wasn't he really?
By hook or by crook.
Your perfect dad was only interested in helping himself. OK?
He's taken all his money out of Max's business over the weekend.
So you want to take your rose-tinted glasses off.
Maybe he wasn't perfect, but he made you happy, didn't he?
Not in reality.
What's that supposed to mean?
We always survived on this kind of unreal level.
He wanted to whisk me off to a desert island, but that's not me.
This is me. Here, in a messy kitchen with a house full of family.
Oh, do me a favour!
It was too romantic, was it, for you now? I've really heard it all!
No, you haven't. And you won't.
Because it's my life and my feelings
and you don't have to agree or understand.
I was just kind of hoping for some support.
We've got no money coming in,
Tiff's biting her nails again,
Morgan's up four times a night, and to be honest, Mum,
you won't even talk to me about your operation.
We're going to cope, all right? We'll miss David, but we'll be all right.
I'm just really worried about you.
You're looking really tired.
I'll stop work. I'll rest. I'll stop being so stubborn. I'll...
..give myself every chance I can.
I can cover the shifts.
You can't. Not all of them!
Yes, I can, and I will.
We've said from the beginning that we're in this together.
Yeah? The three of us. And we are.
It's going to be all right. You know that?
-So much nicer in here these days, ain't it?
Getting well posh round here, you know.
Rent's going through the roof.
That's London for you.
We'll be talking about the weather next!
Here we are.
Wow! Table service and everything!
They don't do this for everyone, you know.
-It's a one-off.
Anyway, listen, I've knocked together a bit of a curry
-if you fancy coming back after we've had this?
Denise, it's all fine. Oh, hang on.
Double shot of rum.
Yes, my dear.
I just wanted to find out how you and the girls are doing.
A spa? Hey, that's very relaxing.
Yeah, why not?
Nah, nah, nah. Ian's fine. No news here, I'm afraid.
Turns out I can't fix boilers.
-You've definitely got hot water?
Oi! Aleks, problem solved. Meet our new flatmate - my nephew, Dean.
You don't have kids, do you?
Can you pay the deposit and first month's rent?
Yeah, it's all sorted. Just going to nip to the bog.
Excitement just goes straight to my bladder!
You're either mad or you don't know your aunt.
Don't worry pal, I'm not sticking around for too long.
You sure you're all right to pay the deposit?
Yeah. Just don't let him know.
I just wanted to be able to tell Ian it was all over.
Well, you did your best, didn't you?
The way Jake sat there, all indignant. Lying through his teeth.
Don't tell me you believed him?
-But if he didn't do it...
-I don't know.
I know Ian wants answers
but I'm pretty sure this ain't the one he wants.
Come on, Sharon, you was about to say something?
Forget it, it's not worth sharing.
Let me be the judge of that, yeah?
I overheard Cindy talking to Ian.
She said she wouldn't tell the police
that Ian lied about his alibi the night Lucy was murdered.
This is really lovely, thank you.
You've got it all now, Billy, haven't you?
This is a really nice place you've got.
And you've got a good job, people that respect you.
Yeah. Nearly got it all.
I'm glad you suggested going for a drink.
It makes a change, don't it, for the bloke not to have to do the asking?
Me and you...
..there's always been something there, hasn't there?
It never completely went away.
I never stopped loving you.
And now I know it's...
-..obvious you never stopped loving me.
-Billy, stop it! What are you doing?
I didn't think for one second that you and me...
That's not why I'm here!
-You asked me out for a drink!
Auntie Caroline said I needed to speak to you in person.
Speak to me about what?
He's been spotted by an agency.
A modelling agency.
Billy, it's a great opportunity, and the money's really good too.
Yeah, but... so?
The thing is...
it's in Canada.
For a year.
We're going to be moving out there on Friday.
No, I think he's still in bed.
Do you want me to get him to call you back?
OK. See ya.
-Who was that?
-That was Sharon. Have you eaten?
I've just got out of the shower!
Right. I'm going to pop to the shop, get you some stuff.
Shouldn't you be on the stall?
I'll get something, OK? I will.
I'm also going to stick my head into the businesses.
Show my face.
-Are they still asleep?
I'll wake them up in a bit.
-Make the most of my last day with them.
-You know what?
-I can't believe Honey's just stabbed you in the back like this.
Had me fooled all right.
Pops, listen, I've been thinking about it, right?
She cannot take them to Canada for a year, all right?
-She just can't. You're their dad and you've got rights.
-And she's their mum and she's got rights too.
-Yeah, I know.
-But it don't mean you have to give up without a fight, does it?
-Lola, it's a done deal.
She's taking them to Canada whether I like it or not.
Ian has lied to the police.
We don't know that. Cindy's a trouble maker.
Well, why would she make it up, eh? And what about Jake?
I mean, you seriously think he's a murderer? I don't.
So, what are you saying? Ian is?
Well, we both know he's capable of telling a few porkies.
Why lie about this, eh? What's he trying to hide?
He's my friend, Phil. All I want to do is support him.
I thought you were doing the same. MOBILE BEEPS
Curtis can't make his shift tonight. Flu.
-How am I meant to get cover at this short notice?
-Sharon, I think...
No. I am done talking about this, Phil.
-That mattress is a joke.
Preferred your grandad's sofa, did you?
Rota. Cooking, cleaning...
Are you winding me up?
Without some sense of order, there's nothing to separate us from the animals.
Oh, and the one who finishes the milk should buy the next, yeah?
And try not to spend so long in the shower in the morning.
Some of us have jobs to go to.
He ain't that bad, really.
-What about this one?
-Babe, you look great in it but...
-it's not quite right for tonight, is it?
-Charity ball at work.
-Tosh's station's up for team of the year.
Ooh! What do you get if you win, a shiny new hose?
What else you got?
It's not fancy dress!
-Oh, I give up then!
Sorry. It's just...there's going to be loads of bigwigs there
and all my mates from the station.
-I just want it to be perfect.
-Yeah, I know.
It will, all right? I promise.
Look what I got you two.
Oh, come on. I know it's not much, but Daddy's got to work today.
-KNOCK AT DOOR
-We're not open yet!
(Listen, get down.
(Sh. I want you to play sleeping bunnies.
(The quietest one gets a mega chip butty, eh?
-All right, Ian?
-You don't have to be here, mate.
-Just checking everything's OK.
-Yeah. Everything's fine.
I'm sorry, mate. It's my last day with them
and I didn't want to leave them with Lola.
The thing is, Honey's taking them to Canada to live.
I don't know when I'm going to see them again.
Billy, take the rest of the day off, all right? Full pay.
I'll get someone in to cover.
You'll never get this time with them again, all right?
-Don't waste it.
-I won't. Thanks, Ian.
Sorry, what were you saying?
-Can I stand in for Curtis?
-Are you sure? What about your exams?
Ain't got any more till the end of the week and I could really use a break from revision.
Well, I'll need you in a bit earlier, get everything set up.
-I've done it before, Sharon.
-I know. All the same, I'm trusting you with a lot of responsibility.
-Yeah, I know.
-How was Ian?
Get your things together and we'll go to the park, yeah?
Billy boy! Ooh, look at the bags under your eyes.
Somebody got some action last night. You see? I told you!
-Honey wasn't interested, Rox.
-What?! What do you mean?
-I thought she was...
-Yeah, I know what you thought.
Thanks to your "go for it, Billy" cheerleading,
I acted like a right muppet and she knocked me back.
That ain't the worst of it either.
She wants to take my kids to live in Canada.
I'm going to stop her.
I'm never going to get this time with them again, am I?
OK. Well, let me help you. Yeah?
-No, thanks, Rox.
Come on. Get ready. We're going to the park.
Er, your mum...
she said I could borrow this so...
Yeah, right(!) That one's her favourite. You got a death wish?
What are you doing?
-Nancy's got to see this.
You've got it on backwards.
Oh, I knew it. This is going to be a disaster!
Calm down. What's the drama?
She's got this fancy-smanshy work do to go to
and she's expecting me to look all sophisticated.
But where am supposed to find a cocktail dress from in Walford?
And I'm going to need, like, really high heels,
proper high heels, like I haven't worn in years.
They're probably going to cripple me or something.
And I'm going to need, like, proper accessories to bling up and...
Calm down. Just breathe.
No, you don't understand. It's all her work mates.
It's the first time I'm going to be meeting them
and I just want to make a really good impression.
Look, I've got a bit of time before work. I'll help you find something.
Like my own personal fairy godfather?
I mean, how're we going to raise this much?
Perhaps if I have a couple of good days on the stall,
-it might be all right.
-I just wish I could help, me and Martin,
but with mortgage repayments and Rebecca's stuff for school...
-Couldn't you ask for an advance on your wages in here?
-I don't like to ask Ian, not with what's going on.
Let's talk about this later, yeah? I've got a shift at the hospital.
Yeah, look, don't tell Mum. We don't need worry her, yeah?
Ian! Ian, wait.
How are you feeling?
Bit better. I'm sorry about yesterday.
Came as a bit of a shock, finding out about Jake's hearing.
You've every right.
Just cos I feel this bad doesn't mean I have to inflict it on everybody else.
Sharon, I'm sorry. You're a good friend, you don't deserve that.
I'm glad to see you looking brighter.
-You ask him?
-He's making progress. Last thing he needs is me dragging him down.
So, you're just going to pretend everything's all right, yeah?
Here we go.
Funny, I don't remember you being a red wine girl.
Well, it's not like we've ever been bosom bunnies.
So, how's things? They all right?
I'm not stupid, Roxy. I know why you brought me here.
Billy told you.
Look, Honey, I'm sure you've got the best of intentions, OK?
But taking your kids halfway round the world...
have you thought about what that's going to do to Billy?
-It wasn't an easy decision, but this is a great opportunity for William and Janet.
Yeah. How many kids of their age get to see the world?
Well, I'm sure it's going to be no hardship for you, is it?
Hanging out in another country, living off your kid's earnings.
I've been doing really well, thank you.
Better than I ever did with Billy.
I'm sorry. That was really mean of me. I'm sorry, OK?
I'm just trying to remind you that your kids have got a dad
and a really good one.
Billy doesn't deserve this.
I will never deny Billy contact with the kids and he knows that.
Yeah, but isn't being in Canada the same thing?
I know what it's like, OK?
Amy, her dad, he left Walford a while ago. She misses him so much.
Nothing I can do or say can make that any better.
So if you think you're doing your kids a favour, you're wrong, Honey,
cos whatever kind of experience they'll be getting, it ain't a patch on having Billy around.
That'd look nice on you.
It's a bit tarty. Have you got anything that's a bit more proper?
Yeah, but it wouldn't suit you, would it?
Here, Auntie Tina. Have a look at this one.
Oh, that would look gorgeous on you.
I'll knock off 10% for you.
Here, look, I could give you a discount on this one.
Look at the stitching on that.
That ain't going to fall apart after one wear.
None of your Chinese sweatshop stuff here.
What do you reckon? Yeah, go on, then.
-Yeah? Get us a bag.
-There's nothing dodgy about my gear.
I've seen better stuff in the pound shop than you sell on this stall.
Well, you'd know. You get most of your wardrobe there, don't you?
Here comes Lio Messi, steaming up the pitch!
They think it's all over. It is now!
-That was so offside!
-Oh, as if you know what offside means.
Well, I'm going to have to call the ref then. Referee! Ref!
Jay, I've packed some sandwiches for the kids. You couldn't...?
Right, who wants a sandwich, then?
-Are you OK?
I just texted Honey. Told her to come and pick the kids up
-a bit earlier.
-What?! What have you done that for?
Give me more time to talk her round.
I've been thinking, right? She doesn't have to take the kids away
if I can prove to her that I can provide for them.
So, I'm going to ask Ian for extra hours
and if I can persuade her to get a place round here, well,
I'll be able to look after the kids more, won't I?
Save her shelling out on childcare. Simple.
That's more like it. That's my Pops.
We didn't think we'd get Lexi back, did we?
It worked out all right in the end though, didn't it?
Yeah. It did.
Save some room and then we can get some ice cream after.
Now, I know you said you were feeling better,
but I bet you haven't had a decent meal in days.
-Sharon, I really...
I'm looking after you, like I promised I would.
Now, are you just going to stand there
or are you going to help me peel the veg? Come on.
Oh, it's great, babe. Can't wait to see it on.
Johnny helped me choose it.
Are you getting your hair done as well?
-What's wrong with it?
I just want you to look your best when you meet everyone, that's all.
-Do you need me to talk you through them all again?
-No, I've got it.
Dave, that's your boss. Firm but fair, yeah?
He don't know about you hosing Shirley down, so we've got to keep quiet about that.
Joe, he's the one who got stuck up the ladder. Top bloke.
Mark. Don't tell me.
-Is he the one with the really big...?
-No, that's Jase.
I've got to go. Said I was only popping out for a sandwich.
See you later.
Your hair looks fine to me.
A few split ends, but nothing a quick tidy up wouldn't fix.
Shame I ain't related to any uber-talented hairdressers, isn't it?
Dunno how I ain't give her a slap. Nothing but trouble since she got here.
-You're rising to it, B. Shouldn't let her get to you, darling.
-I know, but things have been a bit tough
since my dad's gone. I can't really afford to lose any more sales.
No, I know how you feel. Me and Kat have got to watch the pennies,
what with the twins arriving soon and all that.
Listen, keep it shtoom. There's a mate of mine,
got a shipment of knock offs. Huge mark up, easy money.
Now, I know I said me and Kat are going to go legit,
but the way things are at the moment, I'm still...
I'm really tempted, you know?
Fancy going halves?
-It was nice.
All right, I'll be honest - the potatoes could've done with
-another couple of minutes and...
The salmon was...overcooked for me.
Some things never change, do they?
Well, somebody needs to look after you while Denise is away.
You know, it was...
It was good to see Cindy at the funeral.
Is she planning to visit again soon?
Cindy can't replace Lucy.
Oh, I never meant that, Ian.
It's not your fault Lucy's gone, is it?
It's not yours either.
How could it be?
She was my little girl. I didn't keep her safe, did I?
You did what you could.
No, I didn't.
Not when you think about it. I mean...
..she'd step out of line, I'd tell her to stop.
But I never really stood up to her.
stuff, other stuff you don't know about.
So, tell me.
-All right, Pete?
-How's the old man doing?
Yeah, a bit better.
Hopefully lunch with Sharon will keep him that way.
It's been good to have her around more.
-She's in there now?
Lucy was always so strong...
so in control.
Maybe too much sometimes.
I loved her like any dad would, but I mean...
there were times when I didn't like her much.
I'm sure most parents have thoughts like that.
They just don't admit it.
Maybe there was a few too many.
The night she died...
I let her down.
Ian, we've known each other all our lives.
You can tell me anything.
You asked him yet?
-Asked me what?
-Why you lied to us.
We know you weren't at the restaurant
the night Lucy was murdered.
It's really grown-up.
I was going for sophisticated, but that'll do.
It's brilliant. It looks well professional.
Cough up. That'd set you back loads in Hoxton.
I'm skint, Dean. Can I owe you?
Babe, I'm joking!
Right, I'd better go get this on.
If it don't fit me, Tosh is going to kill me.
Don't spare your feelings, does she?
She likes the direct approach.
So long as you're OK with that.
-Are you scared of strong women?
-No, I quite like a strong woman.
-But there's a difference between strong and bullying.
-Yeah, well, I can hold my own.
I thought I might get warmed up by popping in on Johnny at The Albert.
-Thought that place was only open in the evening?
-It is. Except for family.
Fancy a cheeky one?
Cindy must be mistaken. I was at the restaurant all night.
You told him about Jake?
We went to visit him in prison.
-You went to see that animal?
-To persuade him to confess,
make the situation easier on everyone.
Except he insists he didn't do it.
There's a surprise(!) He's been pleading his innocence all along.
The thing is, I believe him.
What about the police? What about the evidence?
It's circumstantial. There's nothing concrete.
I'm pretty good at sniffing out liars and I know Jake's no saint,
but the thing is, I think he's telling the truth about this.
Do you think that?
With that and what Cindy said, you can see why we're worried,
can't you? The thing is, Ian, you didn't just lie to the old bill,
you lied to us and why do that, eh? We're on your side.
And this is your way of showing it, is it?
-This is your way of looking out for me? What was that lunch? Some form of entrapment?
What do you want me to do? Confess?
To say, "Yeah, I murdered my own daughter"?
Nobody's saying that. But something might've happened, an accident...
That is what we think,
-but Cindy, Ian...
-Cindy is lying!
She never stops.
It's probably her way of getting back at me
for sending her home, nothing more.
So, you was at that restaurant all night, Ian? Yeah?
Because if Jake convinces the old bill that it wasn't him,
they're going to start asking questions. They're going to start asking you questions.
-If they've got any doubts...
I was at the restaurant.
The last time I saw Lucy alive...
she was stood there.
She was upset with me, OK? I'd said the wrong thing again
and she stormed out.
The next time I saw her, she was lying dead on the mortuary slab.
And I've got no idea how she got there.
But knowing I wasn't there for her,
knowing that she died hating me...
..is going to haunt me for the rest of my life.
So, anything you or the police accuse me of is nothing
to the thoughts going round and round in my head.
I was her dad...
..and I wasn't there when she needed me most.
I'm sorry, Ian.
We want to get to the truth as much as you do.
Your word is good enough for me. For both of us.
Any of that lunch going begging?
We should go.
Oh, look at you!
You'd better make mine a large one. I need to steady my nerves.
These are for the customers later, but you can have a beer each.
Dunno why you're so worried. It's not like you want to make friends with these people.
No, but I don't want them looking down their noses at me either.
They save lives everyday. I change coffee filters and butter baps.
If you get stuck, just ask a load of questions.
He's right. People love talking about themselves.
-What time you got to be there anyway?
-I've got plenty of time yet.
Rumour has it, you're mixing free drinks for a select few.
He forced it out of me.
Sorry, family only.
Oh, come on, Sharon's not even here, is she?
If she turns up, I will square it with her, OK?
She's practically family now anyway.
All right. One drink.
Great. We'll have one of those. Bring them over when you're ready.
-Do you want to sit down?
So, what's happening with Billy's ex?
-Do you think she's going to change her mind?
-I dunno. Honestly?
-I hope so.
-It's a great chance for the kids.
-Surely she wants the best for them, no?
-Kids need a dad.
Hey, it's all right. Chill out.
Amy's got a dad. I'm not looking for another.
You don't need to panic.
-Billy, I don't...
Look, I was talking to Roxy earlier.
She reminded me of a few things,
just how much Janet and William love you, how much you love them.
Billy, I would hate for anything to get in the way of that.
I am so glad you feel that way.
They're not going to lose out by staying here.
-I've already had loads of ideas how I'm going to make much more money...
We're going to Canada.
-But you said...
-I've already turned our lives upside down
by giving up our house and taking them out of school.
A year might seem like a long time but, you know, it's going to fly by.
For you, maybe.
Look, I know how hard it will be for you to say goodbye so...
I thought I'd help by suggesting that you had them until we leave on Friday.
Look, here's some of their stuff that I've brought.
I'm staying with friends, so I'll go, get the rest of their stuff,
-bring it back in a bit.
-Honey, wait. Wait.
I'm begging you.
If you ever felt anything for me...
..don't do this.
I'll be back in a bit.
-Oh, you are beautiful, don't you think?
She looks way more beautiful than Tina.
-What a waste.
-You've seen Tina?
I think she was in The Albert with Dean.
Looks like she's getting in the mood to party.
-You all right?
-Thought you was at work?
-They've sent me home. I fell asleep at my nurses' station.
-Things will get easier.
-You don't get it.
I've been late a few times as well. They've called a meeting with my line manager and HR tomorrow.
I could lose my job.
Look, I'm going to cover Mum's shifts to pay that bill.
But after that, I need to quit the caff, focus on the hospital.
I'm sorry. If there was anything I could do...
It's all right. Something will turn up.
Alfie, that shipment you was talking about, I want to go halves.
I've been thinking about it, sweetheart,
and I can't risk it, not with Kat and her suspended sentence.
-You wouldn't have to be involved.
-But I would be involved, just by me introducing you to Roger.
Listen, B, just forget I mentioned it, all right?
You keep doing that, he's going to notice.
Nah, he's made a gallon of the stuff.
-How are them beers going down?
So, if you're dreading tonight so much, why are you going?
Cos it means a lot to Tosh.
Besides, I ain't dreading it, I just think it'll be really boring.
Tosh gets really blokey when she's with her workmates.
I can hear her on the phone. She's like,
"You fancy a couple of jars and a game of arrows after the shift?
"We got well creamed by Spurs at the weekend. I was really gutted.
"Oi, Teen, get us a beer whilst you're up, love!"
I just know I'm going to get stuck with some really dull wife
while she's off talking DIY and fantasy football leagues.
She don't even like football.
Oh, hello, Tosh, babes. I'm only joking.
Who moved the floor?
How'd she get so drunk?
It'll be perfect, eh?
I don't suppose it occurred to either of you to stop her getting so drunk?
She's a grown woman. She can do what she likes.
-Why have you been ignoring my calls?
-Like you need to ask.
I'm going to the bar, see how Johnny's getting on.
I'm on your side. Ian's and all.
He was just starting to get himself together
and then you barge in, all guns blazing, as usual.
-You weren't getting anywhere, so I did it for you.
-No, you did it
for yourself. And at what cost, Phil?
-Ian was in bits.
-Yeah, well, then he needs to toughen up, doesn't he?
If Jake gets out of prison, he's going to have to answer more questions than he did today.
I mean, maybe I was a bit heavy-handed,
but I don't regret telling him about Jake
cos you know as well as I do, Jake's no murderer.
Maybe he isn't, but neither is Ian.
He's a grieving father and he didn't deserve what you did to him earlier.
There you go.
-Right. I've got to go pack up the stall. But I'll be back in a bit with the takings.
Are you sure you're OK?
I just had a wobble, all right?
We were talking about Lucy and...
..it doesn't get any easier.
Hi. It's me.
Yeah, I need to see you. It's...
It's about Good Friday.
Door was open so I...
You ain't taking them, Hon.
Yeah, well, that's not going to stop us, is it?
Come on, put it down.
Billy, stop being so stupid!
Who's stupid now, eh?
You KNOW how important tonight is to me!
I was just having a few drinks...
No, you're completely wasted!
-Give me the other passport.
-You can't take them now, can you?
-I can get other ones.
-No, you won't! Cos I won't let you!
Will you keep your voice down? I don't want our kids hearing us row!
You're not taking them, Hon. You're not stealing my kids.
You see them every other Saturday and now you're the father of the year?
-I love my kids!
-Yeah, when you remember they exist.
Oh, that's rich, ain't it? Coming from you!
Sorry, weren't you the one who wanted to give Janet away
because she wasn't perfect?
What sort of a mother does that make you?!
You will never see my kids again!
-Yes, I will!
-Get off me!
-You're not taking them!
-They're my kids!
And I wish they weren't! I wish I'd never met you!
Look, I know...
I know I'm not the best dad,
but I'm not the worst.
I'll see them more.
It's like I was trying to say. I'll be there more...
It's the best thing for them. For me.
And what about me?
You used to say that I was...
I was the best thing that ever happened to you.
If that's true and you meant it, then why are you doing this?
Don't do it!
CHILDREN'S VOICES, MUFFLED THROUGH WALL
You know, when you left me,
you said that you would never stop me seeing my kids.
-You said that.
-And I've not! But things change.
-Yeah, I've had to change, Billy!
Six years of being a single parent with no real help from you!
I've given you money, when I've had it!
And I've never said a bad word against you as a dad, ever.
I've just thought, "Oh, well, that's just Billy."
-That's not fair!
-It's true, though.
-This is a chance for William.
-And what about Janet?
Hmm? Taking her out of school when she's doing so well. What about her?
-She'll be fine.
-Honey, you don't know that!
You could be setting her back years!
-Sometimes in life, you have to take a chance, OK?
What if there was something else, a different chance?
-Like me. Like you and me.
-Oh, Billy, please, not again...
No, no. Listen to me, Honey, listen.
I'm sorry I tried to kiss you last night - that was out of order.
But the truth of it is...
..I've never stopped loving you, I never...
You said yourself, you know.
I've got a nice flat, I've got a job...
I'm doing well. I'm back on my feet.
Honey, Janet and William...
they do not need to go to Canada.
What they do need is a dad.
A mum and a dad...
Honey, think about it.
We could be a family again.
-All right. I haven't finished counting yet.
Look, leave that, I'll do it for you.
Do you want to eat something?
Well, I'm covering the chippie tonight, so
I just thought I'd eat something there.
It never goes away, does it?
I'll do that for you. You'd best get going.
We were good together, weren't we, Hon? We was a great team.
And I've not met anyone who came close to you
and you haven't got a bloke, have you?
Well, there you go, then!
Perfect! We could be a proper family, the kids'll love it...
-You've not thought about it.
-I don't need to.
We're not the same people. It wouldn't work.
It'd be weird at first.
But you did love me, Hon, didn't you?
It's not just about love, is it? You broke my trust.
-But I've changed.
-No, Billy. All right?
I better go and get Janet an emergency passport
and I've got loads to sort out. So I'll see you tomorrow, yeah?
I'm not doing this to hurt you, Billy.
Come here. It's all right, don't cry.
Please don't cry!
-You all right, darling?
-Listen, I really need that gear...
B, listen, sweetheart. What have I told you?
It's too risky and I don't want to be involved.
You don't have to get involved. Listen, I'm desperate. Please.
You didn't get it from me, all right?
His number's there and his name's Roger.
-Promise you didn't get it from me.
-Yeah, I promise.
-Say I promise.
-I promise. You're a life-saver.
-Don't tell my mum.
-No, course I won't!
Oh, hello, Alfie.
All right, sweetheart. You feeling any better?
-Well, some days are better than others.
-Good, good, OK.
-Well, I'll see you around, then, yeah? Bye, see ya, B.
-What does he want?
-Nothing, just passing on a message from Kat.
What you said to my dad...
Listen... Forget it, I shouldn't have had a go at him,
but if Jake gets found innocent, then what?
Innocent? What do you mean?
-He hasn't told you, has he?
-Who's saying he's not guilty?
-It don't matter.
-Yeah, it does matter!
Me and Sharon, we... We went to see Jake in prison.
He reckons the Old Bill don't think that Lucy was killed in his flat now.
What do you think?
I don't think he did it.
I tried telling your old man that, but he wouldn't listen.
I'm sorry, Peter, you know, but I know what guilty men look like
and I honestly believe that Jake's innocent.
I've waited for this all day, I have. Can't wait - no kids,
no Kat moaning about her swollen ankles.
We'll have a nice pint and at a stretch, how about this?
Some pork scratchings... You all right, Cinders?
Got a good view, have you?
Eh, come on, let's all stare at the vomit-pebbled lesbian?
No, sweetheart, I was only just going to...
First time I've worn a dress in months. My girlfriend pukes on it!
That's women for you, eh?
Can we have some service here, please?
Gone downhill since the last landlord!
-Do you think she's all right?
-She's all right...
-Cos she don't look all right...
-I'm all right, me, 100%.
Never better. No, you go on, get your drinks in, yeah,
-don't bother offering to buy me one!
-Well, do you want one?
Yeah, yeah, all right, then. Yeah, yeah, just the one, eh?
Oh, who's that? Is that your favourite, is it?
He's good, ain't he?
You two play together nicely, yeah?
At least she knows you're not all right with it.
Burning that passport, I mean, that really shows you care.
Oh, it doesn't, it was stupid, I weren't thinking.
Just pushed her away even more now.
She's never going to change her mind.
Pops, you can't give up!
She said I don't show enough interest in them.
-Oh, well, that's a load of rubbish, ain't it?
I'm a useless dad. Like I'm useless at everything else.
And I tell you something, I don't blame her, either.
Because if I was Honey, I'd want to get them kids away from me.
-Why are you being like this for?
-Look, it's only a year.
Only a year? Pops, I can't go a day without seeing Lexi.
That's different, isn't it?
Look at them.
You're their dad and they love you.
You're a great grandad and you're an even better dad!
Pops, you can't let them go. You can't.
Come on, now, how about we get some chips or something?
Yeah. Where's Lexi?
Oh, she's round Roxy's, she's going to give her her dinner and that.
Right then, kids... Who wants some chips?
She might change her mind, you know.
Oh, hello! Honey, isn't it?
Linda, from the Vic. I bought the bubbly over.
-Yeah, I never forget a face, me.
I've just been traipsing round the shops.
Was heading to the caff - I'm gasping. Do you fancy joining me?
-Come on. Let's get you a nice cup of tea, eh?
I've never seen Pops cry before, you know. It really got to me.
I mean, I know he doesn't see the kids that much now anyway,
but if she takes them to Canada, he's never going to see them
and he can't afford a flight there, can he?
Do you know what? I hate her!
Honey is so selfish, isn't she?
-Peter... Peter... Are you even listening to me?
Well, it don't look like it. Pops is really upset, you know.
Yeah, I know. I feel bad for him, but I've got problems of my own.
Look, just, why don't you take that back before they get cold?
Every other year I've spent the ball sat with the lads,
pretending to flirt with them to get them in trouble with their missus.
This was the first work do she'd agreed to come to.
So I could show her off, be proud of her.
She KNEW how important tonight was to me.
That's why she's done this.
She's gone and got completely off her face just to stop me going.
-Well, it hasn't worked, has it?
-You're still here, ain't ya?
Because I chose not to go. Not because of her.
You've got plenty of time - don't let us stop you.
No, no, no, she wanted to go with Tina.
-You did, didn't you? Arm in arm.
She's a kid. Acts like she's 19 and she's 40!
She kicks against me cos I'm the sensible one.
One of us has got to keep our feet on the ground.
-I remember when I was with Nikki...
-Tell you something, shall I?
-Can we stop you, do you reckon?
All my mates are settling down, having kids.
I want that too.
I want to get serious, start a family,
but I know she feels like she's ticked that box.
I can't even bring it up.
I can't even tell her what I really want in life,
cos I know she'll panic, run away.
I love her,
but, you know, I'm left thinking if it's not going anywhere,
if we don't want the same things... then what's the point?
You two don't know how lucky you are.
How do you mean?
Lo! I was going to go and see Billy. How is he?
How do you think, Jay?
I'm sorry, I didn't mean to take it out on you.
He's really upset and there's nothing I can do about it.
Do you know what? I don't know why she's doing this to him!
Why don't we make a special night for Billy?
Get some beers in and dessert...?
Do you know what? I reckon that's just what he needs.
Make yourself useful...
Yeah, that's right.
Yeah, I'd like to arrange to visit someone on remand.
I don't know how you've done it, bringing them up on your own.
If I hadn't had my Mick to help me, I'd have gone insane.
Sorry, you don't have to talk.
It's really hard.
My dad used to help, but he died a few years ago.
I've put my life on hold, my career...
And I know a lot of mums do that and I'm not complaining.
But Janet, you know, she needs a lot of looking after.
And I don't ever get a break.
Billy doesn't understand that.
You know, he picks the kids up, takes them to the pictures
or the park and it's like, "Oh, here's Daddy, hurrah for Daddy!"
That's not real life, is it?
He doesn't have to cope day in, day out.
Crying in the street and blurting all this out!
-Bet you regret stopping now.
-Course I don't!
Do you think I'm doing the wrong thing,
taking the kids away from Billy?
No, no, you've got to do what's right for the kids.
I don't really know Billy. How long were you together?
Three years. I couldn't trust him in the end.
There's no relationship if there's no trust.
You haven't mentioned love. I mean, you did marry him.
Yeah, yeah. I loved him.
But you don't any more?
Part of me always will.
You know, Billy's a really good bloke
and I know when he's with the kids, he's a really good dad.
But that's not enough.
I need this. We all do, me and the kids.
It's a new start,
something exciting to look forward to.
I know how that feels.
Working in my mum's pub for 20 years.
Getting the Vic was like getting out of prison. Suddenly I was set free.
Not that being at my mum's place was like being in prison...
You get sick of the same four walls, don't you?
The Vic was the new start for our family.
Since we've got it we've really pulled together.
I've never been this happy in my life.
Like you say, sometimes you all need a fresh start.
-These doughnuts, they'll do, won't they?
-You pleased with yourself?
He's at home crying cos of you! Do you know that?
-Lola, I know how this must look.
-No, I know how it looks.
It looks like you're ripping his heart out, Honey.
-It isn't easy for me, you know...
-Yes, it is!
What, flying your kid thousands of miles away to become a model?
-She's looking out for her kids!
-No, she's not. She's selfish.
Ain't you, Honey? You're a selfish cow!
-Yeah, you've said your bit.
-Jay, it's not as simple as...
Honey, I haven't got anything to say to you, all right?
They're just angry. I wouldn't take it to heart.
He hardly gives me any money, you know.
It's a Christmas present or a birthday present and that is it.
He does try, he does try...
But my kids deserve better and I'm not going to lose this opportunity
just because of his feelings. I can't.
Yes, she was my sister. But I want to see him!
I heard you'd shut up.
I can't visit Jake cos I'm related to Lucy.
-Why would you want to go and visit him?
-Why do you think?
-You've spoken to Phil, haven't you?
-Yes, and why didn't you tell me?
If there's any doubt that Jake is guilty,
don't you think I've got a right to know?
Jake killed Lucy.
Suppose he didn't.
Suppose the killer is still out there.
What if they're just walking about?
What if they live around here, what if they're coming in here?
Jake is guilty, Peter. All right? He is!
Why? Why would he kill her?
This is Jake, the man who you helped when he had nothing.
Why would he attack Lucy?
Why would he leave her on the common?
-Have you not thought about this?
-Of course I have.
It'll all come out at the trial.
I can't wait that long. I need this.
Is there not anything that we can do?
That's what we've been left with, OK? That's all we've got.
Don't you want to ask him? Don't you want to see him for yourself?
Just look into his eyes?
Leave him to rot.
-Have you spoken to Sonia?
-Did you know she's got a disciplinary at the hospital?
I'm not made of glass! Why didn't you tell me?
No, I just thought it'd be best not to worry about that.
Why not? That's all I do these days is worry.
Make a change to worry about something else.
She thinks she's going to lose her job over me.
Don't be silly. It's not because of you.
Because she's so exhausted from covering my shifts!
Has she even told them I've got cancer?
I don't know.
Have you thought about how we'll cope if she can't cover my shifts?
Yes, I have thought about it and I'm on top of it.
Yeah, course you have. Sorry. You're doing a great job.
I'm... I'm proud of you.
Listen, darlin', it's me again. Have you told them that I'm ill?
Well, why not?
It's a hospital trust, they're not going to give you the sack
because you're helping your sick mother out...
Hello? Is that Roger?
Yeah, Alfie Moon gave me your number.
Yeah, that's right. He said you might have a bit of gear for me to sell.
Alfie Moon's getting mullered by a girl...
Shut up. It's the puke on her dress that's putting me off.
-That's what it is.
-Oh, excuses, excuses...
Listen, Tosh, tell me to mind my own business if you want,
but you know, about you having a kid and all of that...
What do you have to do? Is it like a turkey baster or something?
-What, you volunteering?
-Oh, can you imagine that?
That's a conversation I'd love to have with Kat,
-can you imagine that one, eh?
-We'll go to a clinic or something.
That's if I ever get Tina to agree to it.
Yeah, but if she didn't,
it's the kind of thing you can do on your own, isn't it?
I mean, that's the wonderful thing about being a woman, you see,
when it comes to having kids you got the head start on us fellas. I know that.
Nah, I wouldn't want a family without Tina being a part of it.
Like, I didn't even want to go to the ball without her!
Tonight was meant to be our night!
I suppose she did make an effort.
Might have guessed she'd mess it up.
She shouldn't be allowed out on her own.
Terry, take the darts off her.
-Oi, it's my turn!
-No, no, no.
Come on now, listen, I want you to go and get yourself cleaned up
and go and sort things out.
-It's cos I'm beating you!
it's not cos you're beating me... I went easy cos you're a lovely lady.
Go and find Tina and tell her that you love her. Go on.
-Yeah, go on, clear off. Get out, you're boring us.
Didn't get us a drink in at all...
Not one drink you got for us, Tosh.
-Next time I'm going to slaughter you both.
-Oh, listen to her!
She's got the swagger, ain't she, eh?
Right, come on, me and you, 501. You go first. Here we go.
I gave this to your mum when we got married.
I put it on her finger
and I told her I'd love her for ever.
Then when she took you two away...
..she took it off her finger and she gave it back to me.
But I kept it.
There's been times when I've really, really struggled for money,
but I've never sold it.
Cos of what it means to me.
..I'd like to give this to you.
Would you like it?
-What I'll do...
I'll get your mum to put it away somewhere safe for you, yeah?
And then when you get a little bit older...
..you can put it on your finger...
..and you can think of Daddy
and how much he loves you. Yeah?
-This is great, ain't it?
Come here. Come here.
-The three of us together.
-Can we go to Mum's for tea?
We can do whatever you want.
I wish we could stay with you.
-Yeah, I'd like that too.
She'll come back from the ball and she won't say a word.
Well, she needs to let you off the lead sometimes.
It's not like that.
Are you sure? Cos from where I'm standing
it looks like she doesn't let you have any fun!
She sucks it out of you like a vampire.
Aw, no, don't say that!
She's just got it in her head how I should be.
How we should be.
Well, that's why I like being single.
Well, I like how she is, all right? I like feeling needed.
Yeah, well, don't worry about her.
Let her go and get SS on somebody else.
You, me and tequila. This is the future.
He's just popped out.
I saw Phil - he said you went to see Jake.
Do you think he's innocent, too?
Well, the police think he's guilty.
Oh, the police. That's great...
I mean, they never arrest the wrong person, do they?
I mean, it's not like you ever turn on the news
and see that they've arrested the wrong person.
I can't sleep. Just tell me that he did it.
Tell me that you're 100% sure that he's guilty.
The cab that took Jake and Lucy that night.
-I'm going to find the driver.
Well, he'd have seen the two of them together.
So, if they had a row or something, he would have heard it.
-He'd know how drunk Jake was.
-Leave it to the police, Peter.
The police? The police? They haven't found him.
I'm going to take these flyers out and I'm going to find him.
Peter, I really don't think you should...
If it was me that was dead, Lucy would be tearing down walls,
trying to find out who did it.
I owe this to her.
I ruined your night.
It's OK. I phoned, said I was sick.
-You probably didn't miss much.
I'm really sorry, Tosh.
I did want to go to the ball, and I know how much it meant to you.
I just... I got really nervous. That's why I had some drinks.
-And I probably shouldn't have...
-It's all right.
And I'm really sorry about your dress.
You looked so fit in it.
You must think I'm a right mess.
I never think that.
I just think it's a shame.
I was looking forward to showing you off.
I wouldn't have fitted in anyway.
You'd fit in anywhere.
Should I make us some coffee?
I'll have a cup of tea, if you're putting the kettle on.
Do you mind if we have some time alone?
I pay rent here, too. And technically, it's a communal area.
I want to be alone with my girlfriend.
Oh, sorry, I forgot it's all about what you want.
-You're right, Tina, she really is needy.
-I never meant it as a bad thing...
-I'm not needy!
You're the one with the umbilical cord still attached to your family!
-This has nothing to do with them!
I thought everything had everything to do with them!
You can go and sleep with them tonight. You ain't sleeping with me.
You don't deserve someone that constantly brings you down like that.
I deserve better than you, Tosh!
I'm sorry you've been stuck with me.
Don't be silly!
I just wish there was something I could say that would help.
You have helped. Just talking to someone's helped.
Oh, good, everything will work out. You'll see. It always does.
Don't forget, you're their mum. No-one knows them like you do.
If you think this modelling is the best thing for William,
then you've got to do it.
Billy will come round.
He ain't got much of a choice, has he?
No, I don't know. Suppose I've got a decision to make, haven't I?
You've already made the decision, haven't you?
Guys! We've got chips!
Oh, no! Janet? William?
Oh, Billy, what have you done?
Where are we going?
We're going on our holidays.
-You'd like that, wouldn't you?
-Is this it?
-We've been ringing him all night.
It goes straight to answerphone.
-What time you expecting Honey?
But, Phil, he ain't coming back, he's desperate, I know he ain't.
I'll have him home lunchtime, the latest.
He'll be halfway across the country by now.
Billy? He gets a nosebleed going south of the river.
No, he won't have gone far.
Stay here, let us know if the muppet comes back. Come on, Jay.
-Yeah, well, I gotta drop Lexi to...
Don't worry, all right?
Right, back in.
Go on, back in.
You can't have breakfast in bed unless you're in bed, can you, so...
Is that your idea of an apology?
Oh, don't be like this. I'm sorry, all right?
Yeah? I was well out of order.
I shouldn't have said what I did.
We won, you know.
Last night, at the ball.
Team of the year.
All that work and I wasn't even there.
I don't know why I'm surprised.
I'm usually at the back of the queue, but...
at the risk of sounding needy,
it would have been nice if once, just once,
you could have done something to make me feel special.
Hello, lover boy.
So, look what I got.
I don't think I'd get into them.
Listen, Ronnie is taking Amy out later.
So you better brace yourself.
How much do I owe you?
Ah, don't worry about it. I was coming this way anyway.
Peter, it's got nothing to do with me,
but why were you hanging round those unlicensed cabbies?
It was nothing. I was just handing these out.
Yeah, but Jake's inside, ain't he?
Police still haven't found the driver. It's evidence.
Well, like I say, it's nothing to do with me,
but steer clear of those people.
Cos I've heard horror stories.
Peter! You've got two minutes. Normally you'd be on warning
-but I'm not inhuman. Get over there, open up.
What do you mean, you're sick?
Listen, I know you're having a hard time
but I will not have an empty pitch on my market! Peter!
Give him a break, mate, eh?
Can we go inside?
Peter, I'm sorry.
About my dad and Lucy. I didn't know.
No, it's not your fault.
Doesn't stop me from feeling bad, though, does it?
I know he's done some bad things in his time,
but this is probably the worst.
Listen, I need your help.
Can we go into your nan's?
It's perfect, innit?
Like the picture Sharon had of the original but, you know, bit more modern?
The old and the new. It's beautiful, baby.
The crowning glory.
You blind? She's a moose.
And you're a disgrace. Puking in the street.
There better not be a repeat performance this afternoon.
No, my Tina's going to be on her best behaviour.
-What with the unveiling and all that.
-I'm never drinking again.
-Here's the bill.
-What's the matter with her?
Think she's had murders with Tosh.
Oh, good, you two split up?
What are you doing now?
We want to create an air of mystery, don't we?
Linda, it's a pub sign, not the flamin' Mona Lisa.
Might as well be, cos it's cost a monkey.
Well, quality don't come cheap, Mick.
Don't look that special to me.
Well it wouldn't to you.
It's about what it represents.
Ooh, woo-hoo, we've got history(!)
Won't have a future, you keep spending.
That's why we're having the unveiling, ain't it?
To get everyone talking. I want this gaff rammo.
So yous two can make yourself busy and go and get the word out.
All right, I'll take the market,
you take the launderette and the caff.
I'll do more than that.
That thing's going to speak volumes.
A monkey, baby? A monkey.
Come on, Pops, answer the phone!
Are you serious?
I tried to see him myself but the prison wouldn't let me.
Well, he's not going to see me, is he?
As far as he's concerned, I put him in there.
I know it's a long shot.
-And I know you don't want to go but...
-Jake's guilty, Peter.
Phil went to see him.
He reckons the police are sure now that Lucy wasn't killed in the flat.
Who said that?
Yeah, but why would he lie?
They're not going to let him out if it's not true.
Yeah well, listen...
He doesn't operate like normal people, Peter.
If it's not him, that means that Lucy's killer's still out there.
Just walking around.
You know him better than anyone, Lauren.
You can suss him out.
Find out if he's lying.
I didn't know he was a murderer, did I?
And he is Peter. I'm sure.
Then prove it.
I need to be sure.
Is this a wind up?
No, it's the least you can do.
It's your fault I'm in this mess in the first place.
What'd you go telling her I said she was needy for?
Slipped out, I thought I was doing you a favour.
Can I get a bacon sandwich, please?
It ain't funny, Dean.
I know you don't rate her but I love her, OK?
And she needs to see that.
Buy her some flowers, or a pair of football boots.
If these are the kind of lengths you have to go to,
-"needy" doesn't even start to cover...
right now I need you, yeah.
Please. She's in there right now. It'll just take five minutes.
Well she obviously wants to talk to Pops, don't she?
No, no, no, no, I can't keep her here all day.
Well, what if she notices the kids' stuff's gone or something?
And that's the best you can come up with, is it?
Lola, I'm thinking about putting William's stuff together, you know,
-while I'm waiting, if that's all right?
Lola, I know you're angry with me and I totally understand why, OK?
But I'm not doing this to hurt Billy.
-I'm just trying to...
-Look, let's just forget all that, shall we?
It's in the past now, we're good.
Do you want to come with me? I've got a surprise.
Come on, come on! It's a good surprise. Get your handbag! Woo!
Don't tell me.
You've come to apologise.
I would need to have done something wrong for that.
Think you've done Tina a favour, do you?
Yeah, I'm not stupid.
You don't like me.
You want to split us up. What is it, genetic?
This need to interfere.
I'm nothing to do with that family.
I mean, it looks like a Carter,
acts like one.
And just for the record, no. No, I don't like you.
From what I hear you're a bully.
Your aunt gives as good as she gets, believe you me.
Anyway, if you're nothing to do with them, what do you care?
I said what I said.
Don't take it out on Tina.
Get in there, then.
And I'll take it out on you.
Call me old-fashioned.
Well, I hope it helps. I mean, the oncologist has signed it.
But it only explains why I can't work, but it might help.
Thanks, Mum, all right. And look, don't worry too much.
They're not going to sack me, are they?
Under the circumstances.
-Well, look, you let us know when it's all over, yeah?
-Listen, good luck, darlin'. You'll be fine.
Come on, then, let's go.
Coffee to go, please.
Hi. The lady I want to see. Listen, have you spoken to Roger?
He's delivering at three. Kat will be back from visiting Stacey by then.
But we agreed we keep Kat out of this.
I'll just tell her I'm doing something with my mum.
-Do you mind if I swing by later? It's just I don't trust the bloke.
-Oh, no, it's good.
I'll see you later, yeah?
All right. Thanks, darlin'.
Do yourself a favour and bin it. We're square now, yeah?
Come over the Vic later, though, yeah? It will be fun, I promise.
I've got plans, sorry.
Just ignore it.
Roxy?! It's Lola. I've brought Honey like you said.
OK, Sal, thanks. Just call me if he does, yeah? Cheers.
Maybe we should just tell Honey.
Maybe we should cut out the middleman and go to the Old Bill ourselves.
No, we'll have a drive round.
How long do you reckon Lola can hold her off?
Where's the Jag?
Have you seen my mum?
Yes, she told me. How did you get on?
I've been ever so worried.
Yeah, I got a warning. I've just got to be on my best behaviour.
-Oh, so you didn't lose your job, then.
But I dunno how Mum's going to cope, for money.
Ask and it shall be given unto you.
All right, George, that's wicked. All right, see ya later.
You know you're all in my prayers
and I've put Carol on the prayer list.
They got the vomit out of your girlfriend's dress.
I'm not sure she is any more.
Bet Martin is relieved.
Why, what's happened?
I didn't tell him, Dot.
You can't keep secrets from your husband.
I didn't want to worry him. And you know, it's all sorted, isn't it?
Here you are, Dot, thanks.
You doing anything later? New sign's going up at the Vic.
You know what Linda's like. Any excuse for a party. Come along, yeah?
Don't you two get too comfy.
Taxi'll be here in a minute.
Will Mummy be there?
-Uncle Garry lives on a boat.
-That's exciting, isn't it?
KNOCK ON DOOR I'll get the door.
No, you go and get your stuff, baby.
Just coming, mate.
Tracker on the Jag, you numpty.
-You all right, kids?
You ready to come home?
Thanks for seeing me.
What do you want, Lauren?
Where are you going?
You feeling bad?
I thought this might give me some kind of satisfaction but...
I haven't done anything.
-I just told the police what you....
No, Lauren. You never "just" do anything.
You twisted things like you always do.
Then you went shooting your mouth off to the police.
And now, you've been talking to Phil.
I'm not here to apologise.
Why haven't they let you go, eh?
If they really think that you're innocent.
Why are you here, then, if you think I did it?
I'm here for Peter.
What a good, brave friend you are,
confronting the ice-cold killer.
But then, we both know that's rubbish, don't we, Lauren?
I don't know anything any more, Jake.
I certainly don't know you.
But if the police think you're guilty...
You look me in the eyes.
And you tell me that you believe I did it.
I don't know what I did to you that was so bad.
Do you know what? I'm going to kill Billy.
Why couldn't he just do something sensible
like climb up Big Ben dressed as Spider-Man?
You could have called.
I did call. Ain't my fault you didn't answer.
I didn't know what else to do, did I?
Do you think Honey's going to suspect something?
Hello? We're talking about Honey here, not Miss Marple.
Pick up your tea, come on.
Here we go. Tea's up.
So this is a nice surprise, Honey.
I thought you were expecting me.
Yeah. Well, I say surprise, I mean...
Here, take that and move up.
We were expecting you, just not yet.
How come you're so early?
I need to talk to Billy.
Who do you think you are, Ronnie Biggs?
-I mean, we tracked you down in what, four hours?
-Three and a half.
And that's with 45 minutes stuck on the M25.
Yeah, well, you got lucky.
-Cos ten more and you wouldn't have had a clue.
So, where was Daddy taking you, eh?
Uncle Garry's boat.
Priceless. You can't even swim.
Laugh all you want. I'm not coming back.
So you've got everything sorted out, have you? Fake IDs, new schools?
She's not taking my kids, Phil.
All right? I've tried to reason with her.
It's a year, Billy.
And what if she decides to stay, eh?
Meets a fella,
decides that that's where she wants to live, eh?
When am I going to see them then, eh? Once, twice a year?
Well, it's better that than nothing at all, ain't it?
Billy, she's at Roxy's now, yeah?
You leave it much longer, she'll be straight onto the Old Bill.
And you want to get done for kidnapping do you, eh?
Come on, mate. Look. Just have a look.
If you've got something to hide, mate, you can talk to the police.
I'm taking your reg.
-There ya go.
-It's all there, though, innit?
-Not charged us over the top, has he?
-Pay-off far outweighs the risk. As long as you don't get caught.
It's good gear, though, innit?
I mean, he said it's guaranteed to get the ladies hooked.
Have you brought drugs into this house?
Mum, it's fake tan!
Look, here you go.
You can have a bit!
Remember what we said, kids, yeah? Last night's our little secret.
Yeah, cos we don't want Mummy getting jealous, do we?
You're doing the right thing, Billy.
So I tell him, "Look, buddy, you're wasting not only my time..."
Aleks, I agree with you, I mean, that's so interesting.
Roxy, this has been lovely, but I really need to go and get Billy.
No, no, just wait here!
Why don't you have another cup of tea?
Look, we arranged three o'clock, OK?
My flight leaves in four hours and I've got a huge amount to sort out.
-Are you packed? Yes. All you've got to do is jump in a taxi.
-OK, listen. I've been thinking.
What if Janet stayed with Billy?
It'd be a lot for him to take on.
And he'll have to re-enrol her at school.
Then there's all the other stuff.
There's her swimming, her speech and language, ballet...
So you want to leave Janet here - that's why you came round early?
Well, if he agrees. I mean, he's right.
It's not fair to uproot her.
And I'll miss her, I'll miss her terribly...
I don't know.
Maybe this is too complicated.
No, it's not! I'm here to help, ain't I?
Roxy's here, we're all here.
Yes, yes. Honey, Billy's going to be here any minute!
-Are you trying to keep me away from him for some reason?
Here you are. I'll get it.
Listen, I think it's very noble what you're doing, honestly.
Be nice. She's talking about letting Janet stay, all right?
Where have you two been? I've missed you.
We went to that soft play place.
Yeah, then we went and got a burger.
Hon, Lola says you wanted to talk to me.
I've been thinking about what you've been saying, Billy.
Well, how would you feel about Janet staying?
Daddy wanted us to live on a boat.
You looking for your phone?
What have you done with it?
Get yourself to the Vic.
You spent all night hanging round dodgy clubs,
taking down registrations?
What were you thinking?
Never mind that, OK.
Did he see you?
Well, what did he say?
What do you think he said? He said he didn't do it.
Lauren, if you've changed your mind...
I don't know.
I honestly don't know, Peter.
I'm not saying that I think Jake's innocent, but...
But you're not sure, are you? He could be?
There are some things that don't quite add up, yeah.
Where are you going?
I've got to get back out there.
I've got to find that driver.
Are you mad? Can you just sit down, please, Peter?
Look at yourself. You've got to stop this.
I will, when I'm convinced they've found the right man.
What else can I do for Lucy now?
I can't just give up.
All right. Well, you can't go out on your own.
I'll come with you.
-I think it's time, Mick, don't you?
-Yeah, all right, yeah.
Hello, again. You all right?
Look, I'm really sorry I haven't told you what's been going on.
The bosses have hauled me in...
-Where's my phone?
-You'll get it. You'll get it all right.
-After the fireworks.
Right, ladies and gentlemen.
First of all, thank you very much for turning out.
Now, I want you in the pub, not outside,
so I'm going to keep this very brief and very lively.
This is a traditional boozer.
And we're very proud of it.
And what better way of recognising that
that to have the greatest symbol of heritage and of endurance
above that door?
So, please, raise your glasses to the Queen Vic.
The Queen Vic!
Go on, love. Do the honours.
The Queen Victoria!
Easy girl, easy.
Special enough for you?
Before you start, I'm sorry, all right?
After all the trouble lying's caused us, Billy, honestly.
I was stupid.
I shouldn't have done it.
I shouldn't have burnt the passport,
and I shouldn't have had a go at you.
Look, I know you're upset.
When they were born
I promised myself
that I'd be all the things that my old man wasn't.
Nothing out of the ordinary.
I'd protect them, play with them,
I don't know, just be there.
And I was.
And I was the happiest I've ever been.
I ain't... Sorry, I'm not blaming you, I'm not.
It was my own fault.
But it broke my heart.
I suppose all this brings it all back.
I'm not going out of my way to hurt you, Billy.
You know, if they'd offered us this contract in London,
-I would have taken it.
I don't see them enough as it is.
I'm being selfish, I know.
No, that's what you think I'm being.
You're a brilliant mum.
It's a brilliant opportunity.
-And you're a brilliant Dad, Billy.
-And a good man.
OK, you nearly did a really stupid thing just then...
..but in the end you put them first.
That's what matters, isn't it?
Go on, then. Give me my phone.
I really am sorry.
For being a cow or nicking this?
You're right. I'm a total screw up. And I don't deserve you.
But I do really love you.
I'll put you first from now on. I promise.
Do you really think I'm needy?
No! Dean just got the wrong end of the stick.
Oh, you mean he was stirring?
Look, if you've got something to say, just say it, yeah?
Don't go behind my back.
If I can't trust you...
What? Even if it's for, like, a really good reason?
Lads? What are you doing here?
Couldn't let you miss out completely, could I?
I don't know how you can be so calm.
What do you want him to do?
Call a Beefeater and get her sent to the Tower?
You're all right with it, are you?
My beautiful sign...vandalised.
Oh, shut up, it'll come off, won't it?
Look, she's brought the punters in, hasn't she?
All hail Queen Tosh - that's what I say.
Yes, lads, what can I get you?
So, you're off then?
-Aleks? Hi. Yeah.
-I'm glad I caught you.
I had this thing lying about.
Thought maybe it might be of some use.
Yeah, it's a bit old and scratched but it works.
You'll be able to call Janet every day.
Are you sure, mate? That's very decent of you.
Really, I can't...
Laimigu celu, as we say in Latvian. Have a safe trip.
All right, then, sweetie.
Now, you be a good girl for Daddy, OK?
And I'll see you very soon, all right? Give us a kiss.
Are you sure you're OK about this?
I know this is what I wanted, but...
You'll be fine.
Listen, I know we've had our ups and downs Billy but...
you've never made Janet feel anything other than perfect.
That's cos you are, aren't you?
She's our little girl.
Do you know how special that makes you, Billy Mitchell?
I'm glad I had my babies with you.
Yeah, I'll just...
Stay with Mummy.
See you later, alligator.
Love you, boy.
You be good, yeah?
-Text me me as soon as you land?
Where to, love? Gatwick?
Yeah, and you.
Bye, bye, Mummy.
Bye, Mummy, bye.
Right, then, princess.
Now, what's it going to be?
Brussels sprouts or ice cream?
Start as we mean to go on, eh?
Going to give your dad a cuddle?
Come on. There we go.
I was a bit surprised when your mother said. I mean...
from a drug dealer.
I know, Dot. My own mother, eh?
Mind you, you have been in prison.
You meet a lot of funny people in there, you know.
As I know to my cost.
Yeah, well, thanks for reminding me about that.
-You really think you're going to sell that stuff?
-Yeah, why not?
It's hardly the season for fake tan.
Who's going to buy it when the sun's blazing around outside?
-It's hardly your area of speciality though, is it, Dot?
-No, thank you.
What do you keep staring at?
You look like you could do with a bit of colour -
fancy buying a bit of fake tan?
No, thanks. I don't do orange.
That's an interesting sign out there, innit?
That's not the word I'd use for it.
-Excuse me. Excuse me.
What's the matter with her? How many's she had?
I thought you said you didn't fancy that Tina.
I don't. I've told you that, OK?
So what was it then? A one-off snog, was it?
I've seen the way you were looking at her and her girlfriend, Sonia.
I am not stupid. Has something else happened?
It's been really a horrible day.
I've been worried about the tribunal, money, Mummy.
Listen, about that. You know, I can explain to you...
No need. I ain't deaf.
And I ain't stupid neither.
I am deeply disappointed in you, Sonia.
You don't have to tell me how hard marriage is.
Look, it was a mistake. It didn't mean anything.
That makes it all the worse.
You're prepared to throw away your marriage,
a good husband, a lovely little daughter,
what we had too much trouble with - you was lucky to get her back.
Course, that's none of my business.
Oh, come on, Dot, you heard her. Don't say nothing.
Your mother -
she's got enough on her plate.
What? I didn't know she was in there, did I?
She ain't going to say nothing.
Well, let's hope she doesn't, eh?
I dunno why I thought I could trust you.
Oh, come on, Son, don't be like that.
