Er, no! My mum'll definitely know we ain't going to the cinema, you dressed like that!
She's hoping Tyler'll see what he's missing out on.
Won't do him any harm. He's relieved not to be a dad.
Speaks for itself what he thinks about our future, eh?
-He's a typical bloke. Forget about him.
-No - wait.
-Have you actually spoken to him properly?
-I don't want to.
It's about tonight - girlfriends!
Well, my mum and dad don't trust me so I might as well prove 'em right, eh? Woooo!
Listen - we're not going to get wasted, are we,
like wake up in a wheelie bin somewhere, are we?
Whitney! I am in control.
-Right, how much have we got?
I'm... I'm banking on my smile.
Whit. Why have you been avoiding me all weekend, babe?
I thought we was cool now?
Anyway - I want to take you out tonight, treat ya.
So give me a call when you get this, yeah? Bye.
Change is as good as a rest.
Come Thursday, we get to see your mum as often as we can.
Morgan, he seems really excited about moving, isn't he?
You going to make your mum really proud tomorrow, love? Yeah?
Pass your maths test with flying colours?
That's all Mum's got to think about inside. What if I let her down?
Oh, poor little thing.
-She really doesn't want to go, does she?
-It's not about that.
Anyway, I thought I told you to get rid of that.
Ooh, someone hasn't taken their evening primrose!
The last thing that this family needs is anything remotely dodgy.
I've got a buyer. And what this family needs is cash right now.
-Stick with "The Provider", Carol.
-Then there'll be no problem
keeping this house on when we've gone to Suffolk, then.
You really haven't thought this through, have you?
Going to seem empty, just me and you rattling round.
-Well, I'll leave it to you to tell the kids why you're deserting them.
-Other way round, Carol.
Tiff! It's going to be all right, darling...
Must be cosy, moving back with your family?
Total adrenaline rush. Waking up with matching socks to put on.
-Nice...hair, Mr Branning.
-See you later.
What you doing?
I'm looking for cash, cos I need some nail varnish remover.
Anything to get off my face.
I am sorry about last week, darling.
I've been listening to that CD you bought me. It's awful, innit?
Can't believe how bad my taste in music was when I was a teenager,
thought I was a right old rebel. Smoking, and going after bad boys.
Didn't care about anyone else.
'Cept your dad.
I suppose rebelling sort of took my mind off just how poorly he was.
But you know I'm not poorly.
-And I'm not rebelling.
And that's why instead of getting on your case,
I should've just told you that I'm really proud of you,
for giving up the drink.
Cos I am.
You got a cuddle for me?
Just a little one?
D'you know what - when I was your age I'd met your dad and I was pregnant with you,
can you believe that? Eh?
And that's when it hit me.
It's like this feeling you get where...
I would rather be hit by a train than see my little girl in distress.
And so that's why I'm a nag.
One day you'll know.
-Not too soon, I hope.
Here. You take this for the cinema tonight,
cos you deserve a really nice night out.
Where you going, dressed like that? I mean - looking so nice.
Bit overdressed for King's Cross.
Oh, if only that course he's paying for taught manners, eh?
You didn't say where you were going.
The caff. If we're going to get married, hun, someone's got to look after our assets.
Right, it's a bank holiday. I suggest you use the time wisely.
Well, I'm starting a crammer course today,
so you can step away from the crockery.
-I thought that was tomorrow.
-No, Dad. It's today and it'll need paying for.
-Yeah, I just thought...
-You've been on my case enough!
-Here you are.
-It's a double session.
I note this gentleman has been in my restaurant for 15 minutes
and still hasn't ordered any food.
Erm...is it halal?
Mate, it's not even chicken. More like pigeon.
-D'you want a cup of McTea?
Tam, I've been scraping the fat off the kitchen floor for an hour now.
You said you were going to deal with Mr Halitosis from the cash and carry
but you're here again. You two joined at the hip or something?
-I'll be there in ten minutes.
-You'd better be.
I'm living the "married and working together" dream.
-Afia - we're going out on a girly one tonight.
Well, the restaurant's quite busy but you know, I'm sure I...
-So, sorry if we all come crashing in begging you for biryani!
So what can I get madam?
Er...no, I'm not eating. Thanks.
Fats, listen - I'm really sorry, I wouldn't usually do this but...
I'll pay you straight back, I promise.
Hey. Youth club's up the road.
FAT BOY LAUGHS
Look, look. See, tonight I've got a gig, all right?
These fingers have got a date with the decks.
And I'm getting paid. So listen, you hold this, all right,
-and no rush in paying me back.
You are a true friend.
-You part of the wallpaper here, Tam?
-I love the ambience.
-I'll see you later.
-All right, babe.
It's nice of Masood, isn't it, to help you out?
-How many kids at school have got a private tutor? Eh?
-Got a tummy ache.
She's a bit stressed about Bianca.
Oh...well, that's OK, I've got stuff to do.
Just a shame, because Joey looks like he could do with a few treats.
And the only way he's going to earn them
is if Tiffany can count them, do a few sums with them...
That's emotional blackmail.
So what are you getting out of all this?
A warm glow inside.
-D'you want to do your lesson on the go, get some fresh air? Is that all right with you, Carol?
-Can Joey come?
-No, I think Joey'd better stay here, sweetheart.
Get used to its environment.
I mean, it's going to be a big upheaval moving all the way to Suffolk.
That's how they go stray.
You should think about leaving Joey at home.
Maybe Shenice could look after him.
She's going to need the company, what with her best friend going away.
That was out of order.
Well, I'm not the one ripping her out of the school she's excelling in, am I?
-She's university material, that one.
-She'll be fine. It's not for ever.
Oh, no, just long enough for her to mess up her chances.
She'll be the misfit in that new school.
All her old mates moved on when she comes home. Mmm?
Look. I don't know if it's your hormones, or
if it's that time of the month that's stressing you out, but...
if you need cheering up, d'you fancy going out for something to eat later?
You're acting like nothing's happened.
I'm sorry, have I missed something here?
-I thought you didn't want to be pregnant.
-I don't. I don't. Not yet.
-So you do?
-There it is again, you're terrified.
-Who wouldn't be?
A baby... A baby is not the point, Tyler.
But I thought we said it would let us concentrate on each other.
-Yeah, but for how long?
I'm sorry, I must have left my crystal ball indoors.
Let's go out tonight. Talk about it,
whatever crime it is you think I've committed.
No, I'm going out tonight. With the girls. Larging it up West.
What does "Nah" mean?!
Yeah, this is her daughter... Is she OK?
Right. Well, you tell my mum to ask someone who gives a damn to bring her
a clean nightie and a pair of knickers.
Every time the phone goes I think, this is it -
this is where I get the phone call to tell me she's gone under a tube
or choked on her own vomit.
-She still in hospital?
I'm sick of caring. And then I get sick of the guilt for saying I don't care.
She ain't got no-one else though, has she?
Whisky - courtesy of your fit Uncle Derek.
Ah - no, no, no. I'm saving myself for later.
I'll have a couple but that is it, girls.
I'll tell you when that's it, believe me.
Got a tube to catch, Tyler.
-You look nice.
-Ah, bless him! No, talk to him.
I'm sorry I didn't listen to whatever it was you was trying to tell me earlier.
-And...I'm sorry about these. Naff.com.
listen, can we talk about this tomorrow or something, yeah?
What, you freezing me out cos I didn't jump through hoops at the thought of being a dad at 22?
No. I just fancy a night out, Tyler.
None of this pregnancy scare's changed how I feel.
Well, that's just it, ain't it, eh? That's just it. Nothing's changed.
What - you want us to move up a level?
You want a five-a-side football team
in babies before you've reached your 20s?
Don't. OK? Don't make me out to be desperate.
Well, don't make me out to be a part-timer who's not interested
soon as things get a bit difficult.
It couldn't be further from the truth.
You think I couldn't handle a baby coming between us?
What about the other person in the way? Miss Insecurity.
Make sure you buy her a few drinks tonight.
D'you know what? Maybe some time apart will do us good.
Mmm. Well, if I'm not good enough for you,
you go trawl a few flash bars up West tonight.
Find yourself a real bad guy.
Give you something proper to moan to your girlfriends about.
-What did he say?
-Too much, far too much.
-Well, come on then.
Okey-dokey, that is me, Mr Pops!
Shower, shave, gel in the hair, plus a little aftershave,
smell good for the ladies - then I'm going to seduce them
with my big massive beats and my pair of sub-woofers!
Oh, Arthur. You do remember you're down for the late shift this evening?
-I was never down, bruv. All right, Mr Top Of The Pops?
Yeah. Well, sorry. There's been a change.
What you talking about, man? I got plans!
Hey, I would move heaven and earth to accommodate you, Arthur - but what can we do, huh?
I mean...neither of us want you to lose your job now, do we?
Oh, cheer up, faceache!
I was just looking forward to all three of us going out.
Well, she's blown us out for her boyfriend.
-What kind of a mate is she?
-It's rocked her. Him not being supportive.
Oh, come on, Lauren!
What? It's not like you're an alkie, are you?
It's not like you're screaming for a drink every time you wake up.
It's your parents putting a label on you.
We are going to make tonight count. We're going to have a laugh.
-Few more of them, and you won't miss Whitney.
-She has had it tough, you know.
-Haven't we all?
Least I'm doing something about it.
I'm going to get through my exams,
and then Dad and that stripper ain't going to see me for dust.
And what about me?
Yeah, well, you can come and visit me at uni.
Think of them hot boys. Going to be like a party that lasts three years!
What, so I just watch you make a life for yourself? Oh, brilliant.
But I don't really want to smell of my dad's fish and chips for ever.
-And you need to go back to college.
-I cannot afford three years of debt.
I can't even afford to top up my phone, Lucy.
Well, see past the debt.
A degree. Chain of businesses
all over the country. Voila!
-Don't get left behind.
Lauren...your art work is lovely.
-Yeah. Stick with it. Anything's possible.
Well, maybe you could sponsor me, Lady Sugar.
Yeah, I'll buy everything you paint.
"It's a Branning original, you know."
"A Branning original"?!
-No, I like it!
I can see it now.
-So why you flouncing off, trying to make me jealous?
-I'm not now, am I?
Just be straight with me.
What am I to you?
Am I just something to pass the time,
until you find a girl you really want to settle down with?
D'you know, in that moment...
In that moment waiting for the test result to show...
Yeah, I was scared. I WAS scared, but...
And I had butterflies.
I did, I was thinking about our future and...
..growing a little family together,
and we were happy.
Typical. I spend the whole weekend fretting about you and me
and you spend it on your team.
And I tell you what, Tyler, if you're not in it for the...
Whose is this?
Who else d'you know supports Orient?
You bought that?
-Felt a bit silly wearing it to the match, so I binned it.
It don't matter now, does it?
-Why didn't you show me?
Because the test was negative.
I didn't want you to actually think I was up for having a baby.
we would have made it work, wouldn't we?
I'm a nightmare.
Tell me about it.
What have I got to do to get you to trust me, eh?
Erm...not make a baby?
I could be persuaded into not making a baby.
Now that she hasn't got cancer to worry about, I am filling the gap.
Oi. We are not talking about this.
I'm not banging on about my wicked stepmother-to-be, am I?
Who...is rinsing my dad through.
And me and Peter ain't going to get anything.
Oh! You have not spoken about Peter in ages.
We fell out.
Well, you have got a gang of mates now. Back where you belong.
you might be floating around at the moment, but - your family loves you.
And your dad loves you. So does Bobby.
The only person I have to rely on is myself.
Look what you got - you got a mum, a dad, sister, auntie, uncle, nan...
Yes. And it all falls apart without the mum bit.
Least you're not in the dead mums club.
-Now, you shut up. She's OK now.
Until they tell her that it's come back,
-and they can't treat it this time. Then what?
-It's not going to happen.
And if it does - which it won't...
you'll get through it. I did.
I am so sorry!
That is horrible. That is a terrible thing of me to do.
I am talking about MY mum, when your mum...
Hey. It's all right.
You've got me, you know.
I got your back.
I got yours.
My Tamwar had it in him to go to Oxbridge.
-Do you want naan with that?
-Yeah. Well, I wanted to travel the world.
What I'm saying is, if he would just put his big brains
towards trying to make this place more successful...
It's not rocket science why McStinkies across the road is doing so well.
-You pile high, you sell cheap, exploitation of labour...
-Yeah, I know.
-It's terrible, isn't it?
-Terrible? It's terrific!
And that's exactly what I want the two of you to be doing.
I want you to put "busy" back into business.
Don't think I haven't noticed you two have lost a bit of your sparkle?
Just get these lunchtime "All you can eat" buffets up and running,
and then you can buy some precious time to spend together.
I am now.
Danny boy! Go on, bruv!
Oi! Where are you going?
Well, Dan here is taking me to a club opening!
It's a one-off, yeah?
Uncle Derek persuading me that you can stay up this late.
-I know what you're up to.
-Posh takeaways and DVDs...
They miss their mum. I just wanted to put a smile on their little faces.
I know. And I'm really grateful.
It's what they need, you know. Family rallying around 'em.
Just like you do?
What you talking about? Got my brothers.
Me uprooting everyone. You know, it isn't an easy decision.
But I'm sticking with it, Derek.
Exams, part-time jobs, mates - just doesn't compare to a mother's love.
Or a father's.
It's never too late with your own kids, you know.
-Lauren! Get out.
-Lucy, it's a free ride to the club! Come on.
-She's well up for it.
-Lauren, I'm getting you out.
-Lucy, get in!
Just stop it!
Lauren? Come on!
Let her go!
Dan, drop her out, mate.
My bag was in that car! Well done, Lucy! My handbag!
At least it's not your brains you left behind all over the windscreen!
No - you knew that you did not stand a chance with him, right?
So you just ruined it, just like you do with everyone's boyfriends.
-Eyeing up Fat Boy.
You tried to sleep with Tyler!
You're jealous, Lucy. Every inch of ya, jealous!
What is wrong with you?
You - you do not have any real mates.
You are lonely, and you are spiteful,
and even your own twin has ditched you!
You know what? You know nothing!
-Yeah? Well, I know YOU, Lucy!
And I hope you have a good night. And how you going to pay for the taxi fare home?
-What, you going to sleep with Dan's mates?
Where to, miss?
I'm really sorry I've been having a go at you lately.
It's just pressure, innit?
You know, what with Mum.
Lucy playing up. Wedding to organise.
I just want you to know that... I DO trust you.
OK? And what I said the other day with Lucy...
That wasn't fair, OK? She's knuckling down, doing all her revision,
you're putting in the hours at the caff, and...
I just want you to know, I really appreciate it. And I DO trust you.
It's like earlier, when I saw you in the street talking to Phil...
I didn't go mad about it or anything. Really didn't bother me -
-I didn't even know what you were talking about.
So...seeing as we're, er, all good...
SHE GASPS Ian!
D'you think it would be unlucky...?
Want to see what these bad boys can do?
-You really like 'em?
Let's go upstairs.
What about the washing-up?
-What about me?
Ian, I've been really lonely today.
-It'll be all right, I'll make sure...
-Have you still got my mum's words ringing in your ears?
Seriously? Cos she's still in my ears too. How I'm useless,
I'm no good, I'm getting on a bit...
You know, Ian - I need you to make me feel beautiful.
What is the point, Ian, eh? Of all this expensive stuff?
An expensive honeymoon? Without the honey?
Lauren, this is about respect, you calling me back.
I just want to know that you're OK.
I'm not checking up on you, just... Just call me.
No, no, Whit, Whit, no! I'm sorry, I'm sorry!
Why didn't you lock the door?
You're all right, it's OK.
Let's get that graze seen to.
Look... Where am I?
-How did I get here?
-You're in Walford General.
Let's get that cleaned up and call your mum, eh?
Uh... What? Eh, no, I'm OK.
Just...where's my phone and my bag?
I don't think you came in with anything.
-Look, I've just came on my shift.
-Where is she?
-We'll find out, this way.
-What's your mum's number?
-No, no! I'm fine!
If we could up the pace, it'd be really helpful.
Now, what's that contact...number?
Excuse me, where's Lauren? My friend. She was just here.
What-a gwan, Snooze Dog? Why you so's tired?
Wasn't on the decks last night so you wasn't doing no dutty wine.
-No what? Dutty wine?
-The dance where girls nearly break their neck
-and their weave goes flying?
-No, I don't know what that is.
No, we're relaunching
so Mum made me go and pick up a load of buffet equipment.
Relaunching? Since when?
Since McKlunky's took all our business.
Mum's pushing it, Afia's not so sure,
-and I'm pretty sure everything's about to exp...
-There you go. That's why I'm here.
-Look at this.
-Look. At. This.
-A lot of anger...
Preeti Rubab, "young entrepreneur of the year."
Says here, "Up-and-coming restaurateur
"has been backed by Prince Charles
"as the bright hope for the British culinary industry,"
blah, blah, blah, blah, and look, Tam. There are pictures!
Preeti with Alan Sugar!
Preeti with Richard Branson! Preeti with Tulisa! Why with Tulisa?
That doesn't even make sense! It doesn't make sense!
Preeti sure some steam's about to come out of her ears, bruv.
Why do you care about Preeya Rushab or whatever?
She's just some kid from school.
Preeti Rubab is the devil incarnate.
-She's Satan, if Satan were boring, talentless and...
Afia, we get the point. Breathe.
Afs, why you sweating her? You got your own sick little restaurant
-round the corner.
-We do need a relaunch.
-But we need to think bigger.
Bigger than the buffet equipment? That took me hours to put together.
We need to think branding,
advertising, marketing - global scale.
Know what you guys need? A theme. All the best restaurants have a theme.
Indian food is kind of the theme.
No, no. Fats is right.
We need something that will separate us from the competition
-like music, costume, lights, art.
-I've got some spray cans at home.
-She said "art".
-We could totally use that. Let's go!
Ah, Mr Moon, just the man.
I need a favour. Possibly some heavy lifting.
-Sorry, Afia, I promised...
-I'm talking big payment.
A month's worth of free curries.
-Don't worry about the tea, Marie.
Did I miss out on a good one, then?
You all right?
-Can I come to yours?
-Yeah, course you can. Come on.
Didn't know you were a cook.
Arborio, Kalijira - what happened to just rice?
What are you using it for?
Ben and Jay. They ain't had a decent meal in a while.
-Yeah. Not for a while.
Look, I'd go for that one
and a jar of curry sauce. That'll sort them out.
Yeah, I think so.
You all right?
Ah, you must have that size zero genetics
-because if that's what you're eating...
-These are for the kids
-to keep them occupied on a long journey.
-Going anywhere nice?
Yeah, I'm going to Suffolk, moving to be near to Bianca.
You what? The munchkins as well?
Yeah. We're all going. Thursday.
-That'll be nice. She'd have you nearby.
-See you later.
Ray going to be all right with that?
He's only just got here and Morgan's off already.
Um, he does have other reasons to be in this Square apart from Morgan.
Ah. Princess Kim. How could I forget?
Yes, thank you. And Princess Kim
would like a bottle of your finest champagne, please.
-Why? What you celebrating?
You know, I have a beautiful, fit man in my bed
who I'm going to surprise with breakfast.
Ah. Ain't he got no work?
Work? Look, he don't want to be sweating out in a kitchen
when he could be working this off at home.
Thank you very much.
He ain't going nowhere.
Hey, don't get home too early, yeah?
So you're on Tiff's Kittens stall on the market
and you're selling me three of these at £10 each
so how much do I owe you?
Well, it's ginger
so I think it's worth a lot more than £10.
Ah, you drive a hard bargain, Butcher. How much?
Three at 15
and you can have a tabby for five cos they're not as cute.
Ah, I see. You're rising the stakes, throwing in a sweetener.
A business lady already, are you?
-We do trade a lot of stickers in the playground.
-OK. So that's...
three times 15 plus five.
Genius! Listen, keep pretending you're stacking those coins
and you're going to ace that test today. Go on and get ready.
Come on, Joey. There you go. See your mouse?
Lauren, where are you?
I know we argued last night,
but we can get over it. You were drunk, I get it.
I thought we were going to come back together,
work out what we were going to say to the parents.
I don't want to go to yours in case you're not there, but...
I just want to know you're safe, all right?
I don't even know if you've got your phone, but...
I'm really worried about you.
So you can't remember anything?
We were at this bar, and we were drinking and laughing
and there were some cute boys there.
-And then, nothing.
-You blacked out?
The next thing I know, I was at the hospital.
You were at the hospital?
This is serious, OK?
-I don't want to think about it.
I went to her house and she didn't answer the door.
So...maybe she's asleep.
-Or maybe something's happened.
I don't get it. Why would she just leave you like that?
Are you sure you didn't fall out?
This is too much.
Maybe you're right. I should just tell them.
Think it's best that it comes from you.
-What do you mean?
-All you need is for them to bump into Lucy.
She wouldn't say anything.
Are you sure?
She's my mate.
I've been calling her all night.
Yeah, me too. No answer.
I don't know why they'd do this. Everything was fine.
-She said they were going to the cinema.
-I got the same story.
I'm going to call Max.
He needs to be here.
I don't even want to think about what might have happened.
She's not here, is she?
Max, get here, now.
Oh, look. Look what I bought us to keep us company.
Bit early for that, babe.
Never too early, my love. Never too early.
-Plus, I thought you might need cheering up.
Babe, I am fine.
-I am better than fine...
Down, boy. Down, boy.
I thought that Morgan thing would get to you,
-but you seem all right...
-Morgan thing? What Morgan thing?
You know. The move to... was it Sussex? Wessex?
Oh... You don't know.
She said she was staying at yours!
-That was the plan.
-Lucy, where were you?
-It doesn't matter, I'm here now.
-Well, Lauren's not!
-Where is Lauren?
-I think she's fine.
-That wasn't the question.
-I don't know where she is now.
-Where did you see her last?
-I can't say.
-She'd get mad.
-I had to take her to hospital.
-To hospital? Why? What happened?
She hit her head.
-Is she OK?
-Is she all right? How'd she do that?
-She fell out of a car
-but I think she's fine.
-What you talking about? Whose car?
-What were you doing?
-We'll go to the hospital.
-I looked everywhere. She'd left.
-We've got to start somewhere!
You could do it like The Jungle Book, yeah.
-And then all the waiters can dress like Mowgli.
What about Bollywood?
Yes! Like glamorous and glittering...
And too expensive...
Oh, all right, then.
What about Cowboys and Indians?
Wrong type of Indians, Fat Boy.
But it could be so funny, Tam. Tongue in cheek.
There's something in that.
-We could dress this place up like a saloon.
I could be Pocahontas, you could be Woody.
-I've got some old stuff at the Emporium.
-Have you lost your mind?
I'm being creative, Tam!
Maybe you should just go.
And let you turn this place into some freaky theme park ride?
If you're not going to help - yeah.
Why didn't you call us?
-Because I don't know where my bag is.
-Hospitals do have phones.
What? What have you told them?
-And what's all this, Lauren, about you falling out of a car?
What's he talking about?
You don't remember?
-What, was she drunk?
-No! You are making this up
-Cos there was no cars there. There weren't!
-Why would I make it up?
-Why would you come round here and tell on me?
IAN: Lucy, let's go home. Let them sort this out.
-I'm not going until she understands.
-You're not coming here again.
-What does that mean?
I don't want Lucy having any more to do with Lauren.
-Dad, leave it! Lauren, I only came here...
-To stab me in the back!
-I can't take this.
-No. You're staying. We're going to talk.
You all right? Thought you might have missed me.
And this. You left it in my car.
-Oh. Thank you.
-Yeah, lovely. Thanks. Get lost.
-Dad! What are you doing?
-Lauren, get back inside.
-Do you want to go somewhere?
-Don't do this!
You do not have a say in what I do anymore. We are done.
-Well, I do. Get back inside.
Dad, get off me! All of you, just leave me alone!
Urgh! What's that smell?
-Yeah, your lunch.
What's up? Never seen a biryani before?
-Wish you'd said. Said I'd meet Abi.
-You can see her tomorrow, can't you?
-I promised her.
-She ain't going to disappear, is she?
All right, go.
-I was going to go with them, and all.
-No, you ain't.
-How come he can go, but I can't?
-Cos I said so.
Now, I've cooked this thing. You're going to eat it.
KNOCK AT DOOR
-Oh, Ray. I was just trying to get hold of you.
Well, it sounds a little bit drastic.
I've just found him and now you want to take him away?
-It's only for a few months.
-How many months?
-Look, when are you guys coming back?
-I don't know. It's not forever,
-but Morgan needs to be able to see his mum.
-And what about his dad?
I'm on my way out. Why not come over tomorrow and we'll talk properly?
No, listen, Carol...
No, tomorrow. All right? Come and see Morgan tomorrow.
-What's he doing?
-He's just measuring.
-He's been measuring the whole day, bruv.
You know what?
I'm not sure...
What? You can't badmind me like that!
He did this all for free, for you.
And for you!
I just think it detracts from the rest of the decoration.
Well, it's too big.
Hey, all right, listen, listen.
you need to stop hating, all right, and start appreciating.
Or what is it, cos you didn't get the credit?
-What is that?
-I didn't realise you were coming here.
-We're just in the middle of...
-What are you...?
Tamwar, is that meant to be you with the...?
Well, see, this is Tamwar, all right.
And this is him dressed as Woody the cowboy, you see?
Over here we have Afia and she's dressed as an Indian. Pocohontas.
-And this is round the river bend. See?
-Fats, leave this to me, yeah?
It's like the River Thames, know what I mean?
ASKS A QUESTION IN URDU
We're just working on a theme
for the restaurant, the new lunch buffet?
something more exciting, original, Cowboys and Indians,
basically reinventing the curry for the lunch break!
Hey Mrs M, all right, this is serious, it'll blow up.
We'll be like the Jay Sean of takeout, yeah.
One minute we're some down-and-out joint, the next,
-we're rebranded and we've gone global.
-Enough, Fat Boy. Enough.
-This place? It's a mess.
-I just wanted to freshen it up
in my own way, put my stamp on it.
The idea was to create a new lunchtime buffet,
all-you-can-eat thing. Just a new menu!
You rename a bhaji, you spice up a samosa.
Afia, you don't... What is this?
Look, we're in the middle of something. It's a work in progress.
-Look, both of you - this is my restaurant...
-Whoa. Mine as well.
What, so you didn't agree to any of this?
I just think we should play it safer and stick to what we know works.
But what we know hasn't been working.
-Our business has always been successful.
-Within certain limits...
If you want to make a success of a business partnership, or a marriage,
then you have to compromise. So I suggest the two of you
go away somewhere and sort this out together. And Fatty Boy!
-Take those things down before Kamil sees them.
I do not want my little one to have nightmares. Now!
Miss Butcher. So you passed?
-Best marks in the year.
And I won this.
But I think you should have it.
Really? Well, thank you. I shall put it with my secret collection
but just don't tell Zainab.
So, I guess I'm kind of like your knight in shining armour?
Oh right, and that was your trusty steed? You stalled like three times.
I pulled out some serious getaway driving for you!
You were just trying to dodge the red light like Ryan Gosling.
No, but thank you.
Because you did save me.
From a whole lot of guilt trips and arguing.
you can forget all about that now.
Bet you need it.
Yeah, three bedrooms and a spare room if you can manage it.
And all the rest is sorted out?
Lovely. Right, speak to you later.
Uncle Derek, I passed my test! I got the best marks in the year!
Oh, did you, sweetheart?
You clever little sausage, I knew you could do it.
Why you so happy?
-Yeah? What about?
I've found you a house, better than that last place you had.
Well, can we afford it?
Go on, then, what's the catch?
I've done enough favours over the years that are due a repayment.
I've got this mate, he's found you a house
better than that shoebox you got before
and the only catch is that...
you can't move in for a month or so.
-Nice try, Derek.
I'm grateful for the house, all right? But we're still going.
I just thought that Lucy would've stood by me, you know?
She didn't seem all that to me.
Just, we've known each other for so long.
Really, it's like we're sisters.
We can talk about anything, seriously.
Yeah, you talk too much.
-Nah. Come here.
-Stop it! Please.
-Thought that's what you wanted?
-No. No! I...I don't know.
-That's why we came here. Isn't it?
-Just get off me!
-Because I don't like it.
Yeah, you do.
-Where do you think you're going?
-Can you just leave me alone?
What you doing?
Oh, it's for Whit. She wants a bit of privacy, you know.
Can I have a word, Whit? Privately?
The lock? Tyler's idea.
Oh, and what could he possibly want that for, I wonder.
Carol, it's not like that.
You're going to think I'm stupid.
Well, you know what? If you don't tell me, I'll assume the worst.
Well, if I'm going to stay here, which I want to...
-Are you sure about that?
-Yes, I am.
-But it's just going to be me and Derek, ain't it?
So I want my own space.
You've got your own space. You've got more space than you've ever had.
He walked in on me earlier. It was really embarrassing.
I'm sure he didn't mean it. He was probably as embarrassed as you.
I don't want him looking at me, even if it is accidental.
Look, Derek cares about all of us, hugely.
Don't be afraid of him, Whit. You can trust him.
He just wants what's best for all of us, I promise.
Why don't you go and get your mum to do that for you?
I mean, she seems to control everything else.
Or what about Fat Boy?
You seem to like everything he does.
OK. Fat Boy tried to help you, and you were ungrateful.
And the reason I went to Mum is cos she's the only one you listen to.
Yeah, well, she's pretty hard to ignore.
Yeah, like you. Cos when you get an idea in your head,
it's like a train no-one can stop.
You should've spoken to me, Tam.
-I'm not like her.
-I tried, Afia. What do you want me to do?
I'm stuck between you two.
-Isn't it obvious what I want you to do?
Let you turn our restaurant into a gaudy theme park ride
-cos you're jealous of your school friend?
-Tam, that's not...
What? Am I wrong?
Is it wrong just to want a tiny bit more?
More of what?
It doesn't matter.
I'll draw up the new menus tonight.
That nonsense from earlier still bothering you?
I didn't do anything wrong, Dad.
I really did try to look after her.
Maybe you can't.
But she needs me.
Lucy, it's not your job, OK.
And we don't need Lauren's problems. Not right now.
But without me...
She'll be fine, all right?
Maybe Lauren needs to work this one out for herself.
Hey, listen to me, OK?
You don't need Lauren either.
You've got everything in front of you, Lucy.
Your whole life, all the plans.
Everything we talked about.
You don't need Lauren dragging you down, OK?
-'I'm not checking up on you, just...'
'Lauren, I'm starting to really worry here...'
'Lauren, it's Dad. Dunno what you're playing at, but you need to...'
-'Lauren, where are you?
'I know we argued last night
'but we can get over it. You were drunk, I get it.
'I thought we were going to come back together,
'you know, work out what we were going to say to the parents.
'I don't want to go to yours in case you're not there, but...
'I just want to know you're safe, all right?
'I don't even know if you've got your phone, but...
'I'm really worried about you.'
Large white wine, please, Trace. In fact, make it two.
Eh? I thought you were doing a full body work-out something?
I didn't even bust a sweat.
-It was just going so well
-and then I ruined it.
-What'd you say?
I told him about Morgan leaving.
He's been miserable all afternoon.
Well, you know, for once, you did the right thing.
Yeah, well, I should be in bed with my man right now,
not in the pub with my sister. No offence.
And I know what you're going to say...
BOTH: It's not all about Princess Kim.
Think about what he's going through. Losing the son he's just found.
-Yeah well, if I'm not enough...
-He is a good man.
And if you ruin this because you can't open up to what he needs,
then you deserve everything you get.
And you'll end up like that.
Um, Ray? You want to go home for that back rub now?
I promised to return the favour?
Look, I'm sorry. I really thought you knew.
I should've done. Why didn't you tell me straight away?
I thought they'd have told you already. I didn't know.
It's a shame though, innit?
I mean, would have been nice to have had him here, you know.
So you can get to know him properly.
So, what, you would've looked after him?
Yeah. Yeah, of course...
-That's good to know.
I am sorry. I got it wrong.
-Are you drunk?
-I got your message.
I hadn't even realised what happened.
I didn't think, I just spoke.
-You've been drinking, again!
Look, I am fine, I'm fine.
Can we just stop arguing and just make up, please?
What, so you can feel better about yourself?
-So you can do it all over again?
-Lucy, we had fun, didn't we?
No, we didn't. I didn't.
The things you said to me...
-that I'm jealous.
-Yeah, well, I can't remember them, can I?
Can we just pretend it never happened, please?
No, I thought we could.
I thought we could just let it lie.
I stayed with you after you were horrible to me.
I cared for you.
You just spat it back in my face and told everyone I was making it up.
OK, well, why don't we just go inside and we can talk about it?
we could go out, we could just go out?
You don't get it, do you?
I don't want to talk about it anymore.
You're on your own.
Lucy, I don't have anywhere else to go, do I?
I can't go home. Not with my mum and dad.
Well, you said it earlier.
No! Can you just wait, Lucy, please!
-You all set?
-I put all my special stuff in here.
Good girl. Have you been to see Shenice yet?
-Well, you should.
Do you want me to come with you? OK.
-All right, mate?
-What d'you think?
-Mm, lovely. Matches your eyes.
It's for Joey.
-Tiffany's little kitten.
-I got all the kids presents. Look. Look.
Don't you think you're overdoing it a little bit?
They're just presents.
You wanna watch where you're going, little lady.
I'm gonna make some tea.
D'you want some?
Have you spoken to Lucy?
Not yet. Later, probably.
Anything else you want?
How is she?
What're we meant to do?
Happy Birthday, Dad!
What? Aren't we gonna celebrate?
Uh, no. Sorry, babe. I don't think so. Not now.
But I was really looking forward to doing...
Great. That is just great.
The hits keep on coming.
DOOR SLAMS SHUT
This is for you.
I love it!
Joey's gonna be the best dressed kitten in Suffolk.
Yeah, Lowestoft won't know what's hit it.
And this is for you.
Look at that, eh?
And the next time I see you, you can show me
all the tricks you've learned, eh?
I got this for Liam.
You can give it to him when Ricky brings him up to...
-It was only gathering dust in a drawer
and I thought, it's good to keep it in the family.
Are you sure?
Yeah. Besides, don't want him forgetting who I am, do we?
I'll put the kettle on.
OK, gather round everyone, please.
Now, you don't know how many favours I've called in to get these done,
and there are no spares, so I expect no spillages.
I've also contacted the Gazette, they're sending a journalist,
they're sending a photographer...
And I'm sure we're all very grateful.
When everybody arrives, I'm gonna say a few words,
welcoming everyone and introducing them to the new look.
Then there's the music and we unveil the new menu, so point them
in the direction of the buffet and, yeah, sit back and enjoy.
Right, back to work. The clock's ticking...
-What's happening with the lights?
Yeah, I'm on it. I'm on it. I'm going.
-You need to speak to your mum.
This is my restaurant.
-It's our restaurant.
And someone needs to remind her. Again.
OK, I'll help Fat Boy with the lights.
But what about...
He can't really do it on his own, so...
The stock car?
Yeah, Mitchell Mayhem. It'll be great.
Me, you, Jay, working in the Arches, like before.
Oh come on, Dad.
I mean, I thought this might help you, or us, get over things.
Shirley, you mean.
We get the stock car thing up and running again.
And well, you enjoyed it the first time. I remember.
D'you also remember whose idea it was in the first place?
So next time you have a bright idea, keep it to yourself, will ya?
Couldn't we just...
Oi, we're just moving away for a bit. Not leaving you.
No-one'll forget who you are.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Yes, you do.
You know, when I was stuck away for all those years,
I knew there'd be things that I'd...
I'd never get the chance to do, you know. Family.
And that was all right.
That was the life I led and I was OK with that.
And then I come home,
and there was you and the kids.
I thought, you know what? I might just get that chance.
And I got it, you know, I got it up here...
and that's when I realised how much I really...
Ah, forget it.
Caring makes you weak.
You really believe that?
Gran! Come and look what I can do! >
He's really excited, ain't he?
It's just one big adventure for him.
It's lucky his dad was so understanding, innit?
Yeah, I don't know what I'd've done if Ray'd kicked off, you know,
and Morgan wanted to stay with him.
You'd have to leave him behind, wouldn't you?
What, and split up the family more? No, I wouldn't do that.
I know I'm flipping chicken today, bruv, but trust me,
-I'm gonna be managing that place one day.
And I've got plans man, all right? I've got vision.
I've got the 20-20, while Nico's only wearing bifocals.
Are you two actually gonna do some work?
I need you inside once you've finished gossiping.
-Hey, hey, listen. Is everything OK between you two?
It's just that I'm picking up a bit of a vibe.
There's no vibe. It's fine.
It's all about Lauren, all the time.
And it's like there's this thing, and we all know it is,
but no-one's saying anything. D'you know what I mean?
I've got a pretty good idea.
And now it's Dad's birthday and we're not doing anything.
There must be something you can do.
We all just need a laugh.
Why don't you bring them here?
Tam, you're relaunching this place, aren't you?
Yeah, one night only. And you get a complimentary beer.
And it's featuring a floorshow all right of my own unique mix
and blend of bhangra and hip-hop.
I like to call it... I like to call it...
Bhop. See what I mean? See what I mean?
It's clever, innit.
-There you go.
-Oh, I dunno.
A night out with Lauren, after all she's done this week?
-I don't think so.
-Listen, it'll be a laugh, won't it?
You didn't see Mum and Dad just now. I'll never convince them.
All right, then we'll both convince them.
And what this book needs, I think, is some pictures, don't you?
So, now tap the book with the magic wand.
Well, say the magic words then!
Hocus pocus. And hey presto!
Look, it's got pictures now.
You know who'd like this trick, don't you? Your dad.
Yeah, I think he'd love these tricks.
Perhaps you can learn some of them
-and then you can put a show on for him.
It's a shame you're having to go away, innit?
Think of all the fun you could have together if you stayed.
I've heard he's a really good footballer.
Kick-abouts in the park.
Movies, popcorn, staying up late.
Sounds like fun, don't it?
Right. One more trick, right?
Tap the book with the magic wand.
And say the magic words.
Hocus pocus. And hey presto!
Now they're all colour. Look, eh?
I suppose the magic show'll have to wait, eh?
I said I'd take Tiff round to say goodbye to Shenice.
-Oh, well, I could do that for you if you wanted.
Yeah. You finish your packing.
Oh, all right. Cheers. Thanks. Tiff!
The Argee Bhajee?
It's an all-you-can-eat buffet.
And a complimentary beer.
I don't know.
Plus all the poppadoms you can eat.
What d'you think?
Oh, come on. It'll be fun.
It's not like we're doing anything else for Dad's birthday.
-Maybe, I don't know.
-You should do something together.
You know, celebrating birthdays and that. It's important, innit?
It's what families do.
I'll try and sort out a baby-sitter.
Hello? Hi, Ritchie.
Um, I've got to baby-sit for Tanya tonight.
Which means I'm probably not going to be here when you all go.
-I would, only...
It's money, innit?
Yeah, I know.
I don't want you to think that I don't...
I'd never think that.
Just look after them for me.
I did you a card.
And I got you this. At night, I'll look at the moon,
and I'll think you'll be doing the same thing.
And it'll be like we're right next to each other...
Even though we won't be.
But it'll be like it.
-Carol's very grateful.
For you folding like that.
Letting her take Morgan without putting up a fight.
What, she said that?
Pretty much, yeah.
-Look, I didn't fold.
-Just a figure of speech.
No-one folded, all right?
-Probably got to tell yourself that, ain't you?
Well, rolling over like that, you know.
Letting her take your son without
so much as raising a finger to stop her.
Most fathers, they'd put up at least a bit of a fight.
I mean, I know if that was my son, I'd do everything I could.
But then, that's me.
Alfie? Half an hour personal time, yeah?
Yeah, yeah, no worries.
Alfie. Same again.
Ritchie just called.
The CPS have been in touch.
And you're off the hook.
-They're dropping the charges?
-They reckon there's no case to answer.
Which is their way of saying they've got nothing.
This is gonna tear Marsden up.
With any luck.
Right, well, let's celebrate. Just the three of us.
Get a movie, get some chips. You haven't got to do anything.
-I'll sort it all out.
You think Marsden'll walk away?
If she's got any sense.
What if she comes back?
And does what?
I've only just found my boy, yeah?
You come up with this plan, no warning, no nothing.
-You go on upstairs, sweetheart.
-Is something wrong?
No, everything's just fine. Scoot. Scoot.
You can't just march in here.
You didn't even ask me, you just went right ahead and did it.
Yeah, which I've got every right to do.
-Anyway, you're not taking him away.
-I thought this was sorted.
-You thought wrong, then, didn't you?
-You've just changed your mind?
-He's my boy, all right?
You can't take him away from me.
And how are you gonna stop me, huh?
Carol. Carol, please.
I've only just...
I mean, me and him, we've got so much time to make up...
He's my son. You can't take him away from me.
He won't have to change schools, or leave his friends...
He's got a point...
He'll be safe.
I'll look after him.
Has anybody asked Morgan?
He's a smart kid, you know. Maybe he should have a say in this?
No, Derek. That's not a good idea.
No, I think it'll be all right. It'll be fine.
-I'll go and get him, shall I?
I don't want to put him on the spot like that.
-It ain't fair.
It's OK. Take him.
No, we should ask him.
What, and make him choose between his gran and me?
How's that gonna make him feel?
I'm sorry, I probably shouldn't've come.
Ray. Look, stay if you want to.
And say goodbye properly.
I'm proud and delighted to welcome you
to the relaunch of the Argee Bhajee,
the premier establishment in this local area
offering traditional and contemporary Asian cuisine
to the highest standards of, um...
to the highest standard of...
We are very excited about our new and varied menu.
We're introducing a new lunchtime buffet every day which will be...
Amazing. So, without further ado, I'm pleased to announce
that the Argee Bhajee is now open for business!
Yes, yes, welcome to the Argee Bhajee. Inside the ride.
OK, now let me direct you to the buffet cart, all right?
We have got your tikkas, we've got your kormas,
we've got your jalfrezis.
Say the magic words.
And look! The pages are in colour.
OK. I think, if you try this...
Wow, how did you do that?
That would be telling.
Can you do magic?
Your dad's got a few tricks up his sleeve.
Just not enough.
You got enough there?
Well, it's the first round, innit? I'm pacing myself.
You could've got a bit more on there really.
Yeah, look what I got. Rice. Then korma. Biriyani. Chicken tandoori.
Wall of samosas to stop the bhajees falling off.
Topped off with a bit of poppadom.
You've really thought about this, haven't you?
It's like a science problem.
He ain't got naan bread though, has he?
You realise you could use that brain power to speak French or something?
But then I wouldn't be able to do this...
KNOCK ON DOOR
House-proud, too. Who'd've thought?
I got the address from Derek.
I want to hit the road as quick as possible.
Tiff! We're going. Joey's in the car, darling.
Now, the minute you're settled, you give me a ring, OK?
I want to hear about all the great things you'll be doing.
You be a good boy, OK?
When you get back, I'll be right here.
-You gonna look after your nana for your uncle Derek?
-Are you gonna be good?
Love ya. Love ya. All right, go on, get into the car.
Go on, go on. Go on.
It won't be for long.
-Anything you need...
Don't start, all right?
Yeah, they've just left. They're on their way.
Good. Now I want to know every detail, OK?
I want a full report, every couple of days.
I want to know who goes in that house,
I want to know who they're talking to.
I want to know everything, OK? Don't you let me down.
You know, I could have you for harassment.
-What? You don't think I can make it stick?
I'd certainly like to see you try.
Must've hurt, when you heard they'd dropped the case.
Win some, lose some.
It's all pretty stupid really, innit?
This whole vendetta thing. The boss know you're here, wasting your time?
I don't care.
D'you know what I think?
I think you need to stop using me,
in the hope that it'll make you look good.
What's the matter? Not hitting your targets? Clear-up rate dropping?
Brighter, better kids coming up behind you?
Nail Phil Mitchell and it'll all go away, won't it?
Only, you can't.
I don't think so.
So, how was it the other night?
-You went out.
Did you have a good time?
Yeah. Yeah, it was good.
Must be nice to get out.
-I haven't been out in ages.
You know, with this place and everything. You're lucky.
Quite a speech.
Afia or Mum?
Well, they've both got a well-developed sense of leadership.
You mean, once one of them's decided something's gonna happen,
nobody else gets a look-in?
Welcome to my world.
You not eating?
I'm not hungry.
You know, if you ever want to talk...
you know that you can.
Yeah, and I will. When there's something to talk about.
No secrets, Lauren.
Not between you and me. Not after everything that's happened.
I think I will go and get some food, actually.
You're right, of course.
There are always younger, brighter things, coming up on the inside.
For you, too.
-Well, I ain't worried.
-Good for you.
Because I know plenty who would be, in your shoes.
Hard men, like you. Fingers in all sorts of pies.
Bit of an empire. Respect. And just that little bit of fear.
That's how it works, isn't it?
Then one day you wake up and there's a little bit less respect.
A little less fear.
I don't know what you're talking about.
You're over the hill. Everyone knows it.
They can smell it on you.
You've got quite an imagination, you, ain't you?
How's that empire looking now?
Not quite the big man you used to be, are you?
I think it's time for you to go.
Your empire's getting smaller and you're getting weaker.
And here at home? Look at you. You're all alone.
Shirley's gone, can't bear to be anywhere near you.
Jay'll be out of here the first chance he gets.
Well, you read the report. He's a train wreck.
Your own boy, and he's willing to take the stand
-and testify against you.
-He didn't though, did he?
How badly do you think he wants to hurt you?
You think that's magically gone away?
You, a rival, your own son.
Something's gonna give.
I don't need you to make me look good.
I just need you to keep doing what you're doing.
You're getting old, Phil. You're losing your grip.
Someone's gonna make a mistake. You, or someone close to you.
They always do. Maybe they already have.
D'you know what they say?
Commit a crime, you can overlook 100 things,
if you can think of just five, you're a criminal mastermind.
Somewhere, Phil, there'll be something,
because you're not that smart.
And I'm gonna find it, and when I do,
I'm gonna take the Mitchells apart, one by one.
It went well.
-I think Fat Boy was a real star.
Maybe? I think he proved tonight he's more than just talk.
I think he proved tonight that's all he is.
-Well, you two should be very proud of yourselves.
-We are. Aren't we?
I've breathed new life into this place.
Yes. Well, you both have.
Look at all these people. We're back on the map.
And now you two are set up. For life.
Are you OK?
Yeah, it's been just what we needed.
Good save, Abs.
Happy birthday, Dad.
Well, we certainly all know what you're made of, don't we?
You know what the saddest thing is?
Sadder than that thing you call a spine?
-Look, mate, I'm warning you.
-You're warning me? Yeah?
You know, what's really pathetic is you could have had him.
All you had to do was ask.
I'd done all the heavy lifting, all you had to do was show up
and stand strong but, oh no, you couldn't even do that.
What d'you mean?
First hint things were gonna get a little bit nasty, and you crumble...
Hold on, hold on. Did you speak to Morgan?
Did you know what he was gonna say?
Why would you do that?
Why set me up, if you already knew...
You wanted him to stay, didn't you...
-Now, now, now.
-So what is it?
You reckoned if Morgan didn't go then none of them would?
Is that it? What's wrong? You scared of being alone again?
I'm warning you.
Yeah, we certainly know what you're made of.
Ray, barrel needs changing.
What are you looking at? Who are you, anyway? Oi, you!
-Come back here!
-Oi, come back!
I know who you are. You're the filth, aren't ya?
-Yes you are.
You've been watching me all day. Following me. I've seen you.
-You been taking little notes, have you?
You wanna be careful who you let in your pub.
-You shouldn't be serving grasses.
-Who are you? You've been watching me all day. Who are you?
I'm your daughter.
We can't just go.
Be on a ferry to France in two hours.
We drive all night...
And how's that going to look?
This time tomorrow, you'll be lying by a pool with Grant pouring beers.
Dad, we're off the hook. Do you want to look sus?
-I ain't coming.
-Well, you ain't staying here.
Come on, Dad. Portugal?
Oi! What's with all the bags?
We are going to Grant's.
I'm staying right here.
Huh. The amount of numbers you girls keep in your phones.
I'm a bit late.
You ain't finished your tea and toast.
Yeah, good morning.
I've got a delivery for you, but the address is a bit smudged.
Look, if I could undo what I did...
If I could make it not happen, then...
Jay, we've just got to stick together.
-I ain't leaving Abi.
-It won't be for long.
He'll want to stay there, you've seen what he's like.
All for one and one for all.
This ain't a game! I covered up for you.
I lied for you!
Jay, I know that. And I won't ever forget that. I won't ever.
I've done my bit. You're on your own now, all right?
Jay, Dad needs his brother.
I need mine.
SHE KNOCKS ON DOOR
Shirley, Phil is leaving.
Are you just going to let him go?
Me and you, Soho tonight? What do you think?
Yeah, we'll see.
We'll see? Oh, come on, babe, I need a change of scene.
After all, I have given up my day off to sit on your stall
It is not tat! It helps pay the rent!
And I spent last night picking up poppadoms
off the Argee Bhajee floor. I need a bit of fun.
OK, OK, we'll go!
-I'm going to ask him what his problem is.
It's your house! You shouldn't feel uncomfortable.
If that lock didn't make a difference, then...
Listen, I just... I don't like being alone with him.
I'll sort it.
You don't have to.
I want to.
I'll sort it.
Say goodbye to Walford.
-This is a joke.
I'll be at Abi's.
I went through her phone, found, "Work",
so I phoned it up. Got an address.
Alf, Alf. Bring her home to me, mate.
She's my daughter.
Not now, Tyler.
I thought, maybe I could get you a...
I said not now, Tyler!
-Yeah, but you...
Just go and talk to her for me.
Derek, listen, I'm not being rude, but after yesterday,
don't you think she should hear it from the horse's mouth?
You ain't leaving.
Just a bit of boy time.
-That was a lot of bags.
-Dad wants us to go and see Grant.
And what about you, what do you want?
I want to make Dad happy.
I'm worried about Shirley, Ben. Look, no-one's seen her for days.
She ain't answering her phone, she's not opening her door. Nothing.
She'll be all right, Rox.
Ben, she's just lost her best friend, yeah.
Just cos Phil dumped on her don't mean you have to as well.
Look, I've told her now we'll have her.
So much for a night out.
-Yasmin's teething. It's not fair on Amira.
-Every time she rings...
We are Yasmin's dads, Christian.
Rox, you fancy a night in Soho? Stop your best mate going crazy?
You know life ain't all partying.
So, you're working at the Vic, then. And moved in with Alfie, too.
Babe, I hope you know what you're doing.
It's just a roof and a job, OK?
Come on, bit of disco therapy with me? What do you reckon?
I can't. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. It's just a bad day.
OK. See ya.
I'll see you soon.
Come on, you, let's go.
To a gay bar?
It's got to be better than helping Masood plan homework for Tiff.
I could do with a night out.
Project Afia. You're on.
There you go, darling. You all right?
You distract her, you're out.
You know I said I wanted to be a nurse?
-I've changed my mind again.
I think a vet would be, like, so much better.
Well, you'd be brilliant.
Do you think so?
..why are you with me?
I'm not beautiful!
You could have anyone you wanted.
Why do you want someone like me?
I just... I just do.
You've got dreams. Hopes.
I'm just going to ruin them for you.
Jay, has, um, has something happened?
I saw you and Phil earlier.
She ain't coping, all right? You and Jay ain't coping.
-We are coping!
-I know you. And I know Phil.
And I ain't having this family fall apart.
You should have thought of that before you moved out.
Shirl, it's Ben.
-Only be for a few months.
-Few weeks. Fats don't mind, do you?
What? Whitney moving in? No mate, it's cool.
Not moving in. Just staying over. A lot.
No, no. It's cool. I mean, it's your house.
-See? Fats don't mind.
-Well, I do, all right?
Do you remember the first time we had girls staying?
Yes, that's because you were playing buy one get one free.
What about Lauren? That was a great idea, weren't it?
Sick in the bath. Mess everywhere.
Ty, Ty. Listen to your brother. I mean, give him a break.
-He's clearly not on it.
-All right, then, just a few days.
I said no.
You can stay here.
Tyler's on it.
Seriously, if Derek's creeping you out, then...
Can Whitney stay?
-No. No, we ain't got the room.
-It'd only be for a little while.
No, sorry, Whitney. I don't want Lauren getting distracted.
Uncle Derek stares at her, Dad.
-Do me a favour.
-It's OK, Lauren. It's OK.
Tyler's on it. Thanks.
-He's, um, he's just sitting there.
Cos I told him, don't disturb you.
No, no, no, not like that. It's just...
I think Phil's bullying him. This morning...
-I ain't got time for this now.
-I thought you could talk to him?
Talk to him? That sounds like me, don't it?
You're a guy. I thought it would...
You and your sister. Just one thing after the other today, ain't it?
Cos it's you.
Shirl, it was all cleared out.
Yeah, and I put it back. It wasn't right.
You don't think that's a little bit weird?
It wasn't right.
Takes you back, doesn't it?
Do you not think maybe you should...
Don't tell me to move on, Roxy, because I can't.
Just five minutes.
Please. I said no.
Look, five minutes won't hurt.
I said no!
Please. I'm your dad.
You all right, Jay?
So, you having a good day?
-I'm in the way, ain't I?
You're not in the way.
Same as ever.
Look, Abi thinks me and you should have a little chat. Don't look over.
Which is probably what you want as much as I do.
She thinks you've got things on your mind.
Now I know 17-year-old boys' minds
and you probably want to tell me them thoughts
as much as I want to hear 'em.
But you love Abi and I love Abi, right.
So what we're going to do is stand up like we're still having this chat,
like we're going to go and finish this conversation somewhere else.
I tell you what, we'll go to my car. You can take me for a spin.
Then you'll be one step closer to passing your test and getting a car
that I'm never going to let you take my daughter for a ride in.
Yeah? We got a deal?
Go on, then.
It's Phil. He's packing the car, he's freaking him out.
Well, everybody leaves. Even Andrew's gone back to Southend.
-Phil ain't my business.
-Shirl, he can't do this to people!
He can't do this to Jay and Ben, to all of us.
He ain't doing nothing to me. We're finished.
Do you know something? You two are as tragic as each other!
-Come on, let's leave it.
-I don't even know why you split...
No, you don't, Roxy, so stay out of it.
But he's got to live there. And he can't deal with this.
I told you, I'm all right.
-You're his cousin, you deal with it.
-Just ask him to stay.
He can go to Timbuktu for all I care.
Can we just go now, please?
Shirl, just do this one thing, yeah?
Look at you. You're a mess. And I get it, I really, really do.
But right now, Phil needs you as much as you need him.
Shirl, do it for Ben.
I don't remember Ben needing me a little while back.
I don't remember Ben arguing with his dad, begging him to let me stay.
This is all your fault in the first place.
The letters, the court case. Putting him inside.
If it wasn't for poor little Ben, Phil wouldn't even be like this.
-Shirley, this is not fair.
-Wanted to be a man, did ya?
Prove to him that you're his equal? Go on, then, big man. Go and do it.
You're on your own.
Does that need salt?
Anything with a tomato always needs a little pinch of salt.
..you left this.
You know, my dad, your grandad...
he used to tell me,
"Never say you're sorry, son.
"Keep your head up and never look back."
But I am, Alice.
I'm so, so sorry.
And I'm very glad that you came to see me.
I wish I hadn't bothered.
I suppose your mum's told you some pretty bad things about me.
She said nothing. Nothing good, nothing bad.
She said whatever she thought about you was none of my business.
You were my dad and one day, I could make my own mind up about you.
Well, that was very wise of her.
Well, I've made my mind up and I don't like you.
-But you don't even know me.
-I know enough.
-So she did...
Joey always said you was a waste of good air.
Yeah, well he always did have a mouth on him, Joey.
Said you was up yourself. Quick-tempered.
Thought you was all that.
Well, maybe I should be proud of him for speaking his mind.
She never said it to my face, but I could tell she hated you.
Two kids, did a runner.
Not a penny. Not a word.
She never to my face but...
I guess just in case you came back.
Is she well?
You know where she is. Same place she's always been.
Same place I've been my whole life.
..I've done some very bad things. Been in prison.
Joey told me.
And I should feel sorry.
But the thing I'm most sorry about is not being a part of your life.
Not seeing you as a baby.
Not seeing you growing up.
Maybe this is our chance. My chance.
To put things right.
Is that why you came to find me?
Yeah. Yeah, maybe it is.
Except you didn't come to find me, did you?
You came to find Joey.
I was always the other one.
The one who doesn't exist.
No, no, no, Alice. No.
Last night, all I kept thinking about was my little girl coming...
coming to see me.
After everything, after all this time,
Well, I wish I hadn't bothered.
I've got work.
Is this Marsden? Is this why you're running away?
There's got to be something wrong with the fuel pump.
I know she came to see you. What did she say?
The trouble is, you never know which one it is.
Phil, I'm worried about you. Come on, I'm worried about Shirley.
Not my problem.
She's holed up in that flat over there.
She's put all Heather's stuff back. It's like a shrine. It's weird.
-I don't care.
-Yes, you do.
You love her. I know you love her.
OK, what about Jay? What about Ben?
What's he done to deserve this?
You don't know what you're talking about.
-He's done nothing.
-Rox, just leave him.
You're his dad. He's terrified.
Listen, I ain't taking parenting lessons off of you.
Running to Portugal, chucking Shirley out. What's happened?
-What has happened? You're destroying him.
-Oh, am I?
-Is that right?
-Just leave him, Roxy.
-I'm destroying you?
-Let's find the fuse.
-Roxy wants to know what's happened.
Phil, he doesn't need this.
Butter wouldn't melt in little Ben's mouth, would it?
-Dad, that's enough.
-Ben, who sent me them letters...
-He's a boy.
-Ben, who tried to have me sent down...
He's lost someone that he loves, Phil. Look at him!
Get in there. Get in there and in ten minutes, we're gone, OK?
-Aunty Peggy would get this out of you.
-Don't talk about my mother.
That's why you're going to Grant's, isn't it?
Don't bring my mum into this.
-That's why you're going to Grant instead of going...
-Just shut up!
Shut up! Go! Just go!
Come and see me again, eh?
Alice? Alice, come and see me next week.
Look, you've got family you've never even met.
You've got uncles, you'll like your uncles.
You've got a lovely aunt, more somewhere.
And you've got cousins, kids your own age. I know they want to meet you.
-They know nothing about me.
-Yeah, but I want you to meet them.
Please, Alice, look, I'm trying here.
One day, you scare the life out of me and now you won't leave me alone.
You're my family.
You're my daughter.
And I want to get to know you.
And I want you to know who I am.
Who's that, then?
I'm a good man who's done some bad things.
I'm a man who likes a laugh.
I'm a man who believes that manners are important.
I'm a man who'd rather eat pie and mash over a burger, any day,
but always order a burger over a pizza.
I'm a man who just wants the chance to get to know his daughter.
I don't want him living there, though, do I?
He ain't coming back to mine. Uncle Jack can have him.
No, no, no. Stop with the or.
Derek? Sorry, girls, no room at the inn.
I don't want Tyler talking to him
cos I kind of like his face the way it is.
Oh, well, I'll just have to do it myself.
You sure you don't mind me staying in?
No. No, it's fine. You sure you don't mind me going?
Well, there's no point us both missing out.
I'll stay if you want me to.
No, you go. Have fun.
I won't be late.
Don't wake me up.
-Yeah, me, too.
I love you.
You didn't tell her, did you?
Once we get out of here, it'll all be all right.
Somebody took out the fuel pump relay.
Rule number one, there is no such thing as too much.
Looks like we've got company.
Didn't say you were going out.
I thought he knew.
I thought... a change of scene might be nice.
I thought that Rahul can look after the pensioners
and I could spend some time with my hard-working wife.
You don't have to.
I want to, Afia, OK? We can celebrate last night's success.
And I can say sorry for ignoring you. Well, not ignoring you.
But, you know.
-It's all right, babe. The more the merrier.
Yes, yes, brothers. Are we going to paint this town red?
Or pink? Or is it lilac?
Um, mauve? Purple?
60 to 90 beats per minute.
-Dual Carriageway speed limit?
-Is that with or without a caravan?
A milk float. With a trailer.
HAMMERING ON DOOR
So which one of us would be the girl, then?
You've lost me.
With the four of us going to the club...
You know, when they look at us,
how are they supposed to know which one of us is the girl?
Isn't that the point? There is no girl.
-Er, I'm the girl, yeah?
-All right, well not the girl, then.
Like, who's the catcher and, like, who's the pitcher?
I don't know. I just want to know.
-I know what you're playing at. Think I wouldn't find out, eh?
-Just calm down.
-What, the relay fall out by itself, did it?
I want you home now. Home. Now. Come on.
-What's he doing here?
-Come on, Phil, you're in my house.
-Dad, come on.
-You've got ten seconds.
-Oi, out. Come on.
-I ain't coming.
-Come on, Phil, just get out.
-I'm not coming.
-Just leave him alone, Phil.
-I am not running to Portugal!
-You heard him, didn't you?
-Jay. You and me, yeah?
-No. I'm not coming.
-Don't matter what he's done.
-He ain't coming. Get out.
-It's got nothing to do with you.
-It's my house.
-Jay, you're my brother, yeah?
DOOR SLAMS SHUT
Whit, is that your bag? You ain't moving out are you?
No, it's mine.
I'm moving in.
-Oh, does Bianca or Carol know about this?
-I'll let them know.
-Gone five minutes and you've moved your boyfriend in.
Well, you ain't my dad, are you?
Are you sure about this?
Never been surer.
Dad! Hold on!
Thank you very much, cheers.
Hey. She needed Rusks. I needed hot chocolate.
You forget something?
Thought you needed fun?
I do. So the sooner we get this little one to sleep...
So why's he being like that?
Well, he's just a bully, isn't he?
What does he think you've done?
Jay? Come on, just tell me.
I just can't go back there.
You go upstairs for the loo only, OK?
He couldn't get away fast enough, could he?
Dad, you haven't got to do this.
Should've thought of that before. You've driven him away, ain't you?
Driven him away, driven all of them away. Poor, poor little Ben.
Mummy died, step-mummy hurt him. Do you know what?
-You make me sick.
-Please, Dad, don't.
You know what I think sometimes?
Sometimes, I wish that you'd died in that crash with Kathy.
Cos it might have been better for all of us. Especially you.
Cos you've done this, Ben. You've done this.
All of this is you. And do you know why?
Do you know why, eh? Because of me.
Me. Look what I've made you into. Look what I've done.
