Yeah, well, if you could just...
I know that, yeah, but what I was trying to say is...
Well... I'm just saying if anybody did see her can they give us...
-They hang up?
Yeah. Oh, well, don't matter.
We'll just go round and see them later. Put them on the list.
I've got to go. Aleks is going to kill me!
You do know people will understand if you open up a little bit later.
Or if you didn't want to go.
You know, you could just go get something to eat.
Have a sleep.
No, I've got to open up.
Don't carry on without me though. It's not safe.
Yeah, I won't.
-He's going to see them.
-It'll be fine.
-What if he sees you selling them?
-He won't. I'm going to be subtle.
Shouldn't you be at the caff?
It's your last day. You don't want to be late.
-I'm not late.
-Just in case.
-All right, I'll stop, OK?
Here, look. Take some for Martin. He could probably use it himself.
That's a great idea.
What is the matter, Sonia?
Nothing! I'm just sorry I didn't see him this morning, that's all.
You've forgotten, haven't you?
It's our anniversary today.
-Oh, it ain't, is it?
-Yes, it is, yeah!
I'm sorry! I didn't know.
So you've sorted all the stuff with you and Tina, then?
-Don't start banging on about that again, please.
-Dot ain't said nothing, though?
-We're not talking about that any more!
-I just want to make sure that Dot didn't say nothing.
If Dot had said something I would have told you, wouldn't I?
All right, fine. I won't mention it again, then.
Well, don't be late. You don't want Aleks being suspicious.
He'd be more suspicious if I wasn't late. I'll tell you.
Right, I'll see you.
All right. Don't get nicked.
What? Don't say that Sonia, you'll jinx me.
Say, "I promise you won't."
Say, "I promise you won't!"
I promise you won't.
Thank you. Happy anniversary!
Babe, I'm tired, don't.
You work so hard. I ain't seen you all weekend.
Right, I'm going to make you breakfast.
-Won't you be late for work?
Sonia's last day today?
So you do listen to me!
-Going to miss her?
-Oh, morning, again!
Do you just never see your daughter, then?
Sorry, she's tired.
Going to have a shower.
Oh, right, no breakfast?
I need to shower. Unless anyone wants to get in there first?
-No, you're all right. I'll have a shower at home.
OK, good. Save on the water bill you don't pay.
I'm really sorry. She's working flat out.
We love this big, old-fashioned romance.
Thanks for sticking up for me.
You are more than capable of fighting your own battles.
Anyway, you are here a lot.
I don't understand, it's not a criticism.
You are. Roxy!
What exam is it today?
So, what were you and Peter doing this early?
I told you. We were just talking about Lucy.
Worry about your exam, not me.
Yeah, but you guys are up to something.
You've been together all weekend.
I'm just... I'm trying to be there for him, Abi.
He's lost his sister.
Yeah, and you're my sister. We shouldn't have secrets.
Look how many Lucy had.
We are so late.
MOBILE PHONE RINGS
That's the delivery.
You need to get organised.
Yeah, yeah, the back entrance off the...
What, you're there now?
No, but you're early, I thought...
Look, hang on a minute.
No. I've got to get to the Arches...
Look, please? I can't let it go, we'll have nothing in tonight.
Right, I'm coming now. Don't go anywhere.
I can't find my shoes.
Sorry, what is finding the cabbie going to do?
The cab driver will have seen whether Jake was drunk or not.
When he was drunk he could barely stand up.
How was he meant to have killed someone?
Sorry, Lauren, I don't understand why you suddenly think
that Jake didn't do it.
You were the one who called the police on him in the first place!
And should I remind you that her blood is all over his flat?
Remember what he put you through, Lauren. He's not right in the head.
Yeah, I know. I know he's not.
I don't know, for some reason I just don't think he did it.
I could see it.
I could see it when I saw his face. It was like...
Oh, no, you didn't go to the prison?
Yes, I did.
And now I don't think he did it.
What? Lauren, where are you going?
-I'm going to find the driver.
-On your own?
Yeah, Peter's at work and he's exhausted, as well.
No, you said that's how Peter got hurt.
You... Lauren, this is dangerous!
I don't care. I feel like owe it to Lucy.
You can never get any privacy in this flat, can you?
-Ah, you all right?
At some point, could you tell your girlfriend to be on time?
-Yes, as always.
-Want a hand, then?
-Yeah. I don't mind.
-Oh, that would be amazing.
If you could just keep an eye on that bacon, you're a life saver.
I suppose you don't have to worry
about fry ups any more though, do you?
-Your last day.
-Oh, you know.
I would like to say I'm going to miss it, but...
Won't miss Tina?
Oh, yeah, course.
But you two can stay friends.
No, I mean... She told me. At the weekend.
We're all grown-ups, aren't we?
Sorry... Told you what?
About your kiss.
It's good, it don't streak. It's...
What was that?
You are like a ray of sunshine when you come to visit me, Aleks.
You have a licence for clothes not cosmetics.
Yes. It's a fashion statement.
Look, we are here to complete the whole look.
-The things you women do to make men sleep with you.
Why else would you turn yourself orange? Road safety?
You're a right charmer today, ain't you, eh?
Can you actually read this?
No. It's in Arabic.
Who sold you this rubbish?
Someone you don't know. Go and give a bottle to Roxy.
Listen, lady, you don't get funny with me.
I want this rubbish off my market. Now.
Do you want me to cover for you?
What's all this I hear about you and Lauren looking for a cab driver?
My sister deserves some justice.
So that's why you're standing here selling bananas, is it?
We're going to carry on after work.
Meanwhile, my beautiful 20-year-old granddaughter
is striding around London alone
asking if anyone has murdered your beautiful 20-year-old sister.
She's waiting for me.
No, she's not. She's gone on her own.
Listen, you're grieving. She is, and all.
But this "search" of yours is just something both of you
have set up to occupy yourselves and it's dangerous...
If Jake didn't do it then we need...
Neither of you are in any state to handle this.
You've lost your sister, Lauren's lost her friend, her and Jake...
It's nothing to do with her and Jake.
Do you think it was justice when they took Jake away?
Do you think you're going to feel better if they find him guilty?
There's no justice in a world that lets a young girl
go out one night and never come back.
And anything you do ain't going to make it better.
So it doesn't matter if he's innocent or not?
I'm not saying that.
I'm just saying it's not your job to find out.
Leave it to the police.
Lauren could get hurt. Look what happened to you.
It's not safe.
Make her stop. Please, Peter.
Listen. Seriously, all right?
It didn't mean anything. I'm married.
These things happen.
Tina would never mean to hurt you.
I know you're allowed to be upset but...
I'm glad I'm allowed.
Hey, what did you do?
Sprint ahead of me whilst I was in the shower? Idiot.
And what you doing back there? That is out of bounds, isn't it?
I was helping Sonia out.
I'm a life saver.
What am I going to do? It's your last day!
How am I going to cope!
I'm going home.
Yeah, go and get some sleep, you.
Actually, can I have that breakfast now?
Yeah, course you can. It's free for life savers.
Go sit down and I'll bring you something over.
Right, go on, what did he get you?
-Martin. Your anniversary?
Ten years, he better have done something special.
Dennis...I'll give you ten seconds!
You can stop smirking and all.
Just doing my community duty. Shouldn't he be in school by now?
I took Janet hours ago.
Mind you, it took me ages to get there.
Things we do for our kids, eh?
Not my kid, though, is he?
You pretend, but I know you love it.
-Being a dad again.
-School runs with hysterical mums? No, thanks.
I might complain, but I love it, really.
Am I you?
No, but, you know, we're like dads united, ain't we?
Just jog on, Billy, please? Quickly.
Say you're right, say Jake didn't do it.
Then, you're not looking for a witness.
The killer's still out there.
We should just leave it to the police. Call me, please, Lauren.
Oh, come on, Aleks, it's a bit of fake tan,
it's hardly going to kill anyone, is it?
You know my mum's ill, I'm just trying to make a bit...
-Is this all you have?
MOBILE PHONE BEEPS
It's hardly worth my time then, is it?
What do you mean?
If this is all you have.
All right, let's call it 50, then.
Sorry, I'm not with you.
-Your end what?
-I could report you.
I could report you now, as well.
All right. I'm not inhuman.
Good. Off you go, then.
Money. Money, money, money.
Well, I haven't got any money to give you yet, have I?
A small advance. Little show of trust.
That no-one's going to report anyone. Come on.
Yeah. Except for I find out that Dean is quite disgusting.
The smell that comes out of his room...
I'll tell you what, if I weren't gay already, I would be by now.
Do you see much of Tosh?
No, she was working all weekend, Son.
Can't have you two starving to death, can we, eh?
Oh, don't worry about us, just two teas please.
What do you mean two teas? You promised me some bacon.
I've got to get back to work, love.
All right, fine.
Oh, do her a bacon sandwich as well.
Right, it's going to have to be change, I'm afraid.
I'm checking that.
I think that's what keeps me coming in here, you know?
The customer service.
There you go, there's your teas. Thank you.
Was that on you?
No, that was on Beale.
See you later.
I need to tell you something.
If it's that you and Martin are getting a divorce,
-I'm not surprised.
Oh, my God, I'm sorry!
Of course it's not that.
No, no, no! I'm off my nut.
No, it's, um...
Oh, bacon sandwich!
Go on, go on, I'm listening, Son.
Have you told Tosh about me and you?
Me and you?
About, you know, our...
No. Are you mad?
She said you had.
About us kissing?
Well, I didn't tell her.
Are you sure?
You're going to have to explain.
I'm sorry... Tina!
KNOCKS ON DOOR
And you know, the most annoying thing is
I can't even get mad about it.
You can do what you want.
He's hanging out with his ex-girlfriend.
-Yeah, from years ago, though.
Look at Billy last week, him and Honey,
they've been finished for years.
Do you know something, Jay? Does she still like him?
Has Abi said something to you, or what?
No. I'm just saying.
It's his ex, you're allowed to be a little bit worried.
I'm so glad I spoke to you about this.
Listen to me.
His sister has just been murdered.
So he's bound to be a bit messed up.
And he's going to want to be around people who was close to her.
And there's nothing you can do about it.
Thanks, Jay. Thanks a lot.
There you go, babe.
I got you bacon.
-Did Denny get off to school all right?
-He was late.
You're his mother, it's your job to get him to school on time.
Yeah, well, you're my partner, it's your job to help me.
They are useless!
Listen, we need to sort something out about...
I need to make a phone call.
-Phil, please. Can we talk about this later?
Look, Pete. Pete?
I've just been with Lola.
Well, she's a bit upset.
She didn't want to bring anything up with you,
all right, so don't say I told you.
Why's she upset?
Well, you've been hanging round with Lauren.
And it's not in her head, Abi said so, as well.
Yeah, well, there's nothing going on between us.
I'm not saying there is. Just saying how she feels.
It hurts to see someone you care about hurt.
There's nothing I can do about that.
You can stop shutting her out.
She just wants to help you, cos she loves you.
But, look, it's in your hands now, mate, all right?
-Blokes don't use this stuff.
-Yes, they do!
Are you that out of touch that you don't put the telly on no more?
Yeah, I put the telly on
and it's only blokes on the telly that use this stuff.
You won't get anyone round here doing it.
-Well, you'd be surprised.
-Yeah? Like who?
Buy some and I'll tell you.
Phil, do you want to buy some tan?
No, I mean for Sharon, obviously.
-See, it is for girls!
No, no, you're all right.
You're all right, B.
This is your last chance, Lauren, pick up.
You're making me do something I don't want to do.
I've been waiting for you to explain,
but I suppose for you to explain
you'd have to tell me the truth, first.
Might have listened, then.
How did you find out?
I heard Sonia and her sister talking about it last week.
-In the Vic toilets.
Does it actually matter?
Look, Tosh, it was just a kiss, OK? Just one kiss.
She was upset, I was a bit drunk.
It was just the most stupidest thing ever to do.
-We just got confused.
I'm going to go out tonight and I'm going to get really confused.
Who knows who I might end up with.
-Just get out.
No, babe, please. Come on, we need to talk about this.
Go and talk to Sonia.
Do you know what I wanted?
What I been working up the nerve to tell you?
I want a family, family of our own.
Have a baby together.
Show them all what we can be together.
Doesn't matter now, I suppose.
I think I owe you an apology.
For this morning. Many things.
Is this the apology?
That's the first part.
Then I thought we might go to Beales for dinner later.
I won't even make us split the bill.
Look, I'm sorry. I should have stuck up for you.
I mean, my girlfriend can stay at my flat as long as she wants
without being interrogated by grumpy lesbians.
Girlfriend, is it?
What do you want to call it?
We can call it whatever you want.
Turn around. Come on.
I also got Amy one, though that one might be plastic.
You're so smooth.
Hang on, maybe this is plastic.
Oi, get off!
Look, if I am your girlfriend...
So you are my girlfriend?
I said IF I'm your girlfriend.
So in this hypothetical world of yours, am I forgiven?
I'm going to go upstairs.
Lauren thinks that Jake didn't do it.
Well, since when?
It's fair enough, I suppose.
I wouldn't want to think one of my exes was a murderer.
-I've got some right dodgy ones.
-It's nothing to do with that.
The night Lucy and Jake came back, they got a mini cab.
Lauren wants to find the driver.
She thinks that Jake was drunk,
and that the driver can tell the police that.
All right, and what difference is that going to make?
Well, if Jake was drunk then maybe he couldn't have done it.
Now I can't get hold of her.
She's out looking all over London for this driver on her own.
I told her to wait for me, but she went anyway.
Right, and why has she got this in her head all of a sudden?
She went to see him.
When was this?
Right, thanks a lot.
You just going to let her wander off and go to the prison on her own?
Forget about that. I got this for asking too many questions.
That's why I'm here.
I didn't know who else to ask.
Shouldn't you be at work?
Yeah. It's hard to leave.
Yeah, you're right.
Yeah, all right. Goodbye.
-I'll see you.
So, you haven't seen her?
I told you, darling, I've already asked.
Where you been?!
Oh, Lauren, you're all right!
What do you think you're doing, running off on your own like that?
What a stupid thing to do.
You told her, then?
I have been worried sick.
I'm sorry, you know...
I was on the tube, I've only just seen your messages.
Do you not understand how worried we were?
Do you not understand how dangerous this is?
Yeah, I do, Nan, but I don't care.
I'm not doing this for me, am I?
I've been calling you all morning.
What you doing here?
-He told me.
-Told you what?
About you going round pretending you're a detective.
He's right. I told you to wait for me. But you didn't.
It's up to the police now.
-So, why you doing this?
-I don't know.
Maybe I'm trying to get some justice for my dead best friend, Dad?
No, why are you putting yourself in danger. For what?
Oh, right, is this about a crush you had when you was a teenager?
Don't you think there's better ways of getting someone's attention?
Yeah, cos I only do anything if I'm going to get sex at the end of it.
Oh, no, sorry. Wait, Dad, that's you!
-All right, Lauren, all right.
Whatever you choose to think about me, all right?
-You are still my daughter.
-Choose to think?
I have been trying to choose to think
that you are anything other than some grimy midlife crisis for years.
But, honestly, you continue to prove me right.
-Yeah? Is that right? Let's go.
-Where you taking her?
I'm taking her home.
-Five minutes with you and she thinks she's a vigilante.
-Let go of her.
Right, so you think that's a good idea, do you?
No, course I don't.
-No? All right, well, let's sort it out.
-I am here, you know?
-But she's coming back to my place.
I'm not going anywhere.
What about, just for once, we don't wash our dirty linen in public?
Look, you can go if you want, you know?
Well, you can go. I'm not going to be upset or anything.
What are you talking about?
I don't know what went on, but if you want to go back,
-then it's fine.
Sure about that?
No. It's nothing to do with me, she's got her family.
Yeah, but she's your friend, isn't she?
Yeah, but you're my girlfriend. OK?
Look, I know I said this before,
but if you want me to do anything,
say anything, or just
leave you alone, then...
No. Just be you.
You've got a family already. You don't need me.
Don't do this. Don't leave.
Me? I'm not leaving.
Oh, please. I do need you.
You just need someone. Me, Sonia...doesn't matter.
It was a mistake! A kiss.
You care about a kiss? Really?
You're going throw away everything that we've got together
for one stupid mistake?
I love you.
Isn't that all that matters?
I love you so much.
You are all that matters to me.
I'm going to take that bag back inside now.
It's not me that kissed someone else.
It's not me who's throwing us away.
You did that already.
I'm just trying to find out what's happened to my friend, Dad.
To my best friend. I need to know.
I know you don't care, cos you were just sleeping with her.
You're going to get hurt, Lauren.
What are you putting yourself in danger for? For him?
No. Someone must have seen them, Dad.
Someone must have seen whether he was drunk,
and I'm not going to stop until I find them.
Lucy's killer could still be out there
while Jake's in prison because of me.
-He did it, Lauren.
-You don't know that, Dad!
Yes, I do know, all right? Cos I saw him.
I saw the pair of them, on Good Friday.
-The police have got it right.
You want a witness, all right, Lauren? You've got one.
Sorry, Lauren, how much clearer can I make it?
Why haven't you told the police this?
And why are you just coming out with this now?
What does it even prove anyway, Dad? What, just cos you saw them...
-Well, it proves that he weren't drunk.
All right, I saw him getting out the cab and he was sober.
What's happening in here?
I'm not having you bullying her.
Oh, leave it out, Cora.
Tell them what you just told me. Go on.
He just said that he saw Jake and Lucy together the night she died.
Why didn't you tell the police?
Well, cos it don't change anything, does it?
-They've already got him.
-So why are you telling us now then?
Cos I don't want her getting killed!
The police need to know everything, all right?
So you - you're going to call them now, or I will.
Er, no, you won't!
It's been weeks.
If Dad comes forward now, how bad will that look?
Tell me what happened. Tell me everything. Now.
He just did. He just said that he saw them.
Yeah, well, I don't believe him, all right?
Why has he waited this long?
Sorry, why are you talking to him like that?
What exactly do you think he's done?
I don't know.
Just...tell me what happened.
I'll tell you what happened. I was revising all night.
Dad took Tramp out for five minutes, that's it!
No time to murder anyone.
-I didn't say that, did I?
-Then what are you saying?
Max, you should go.
-Don't you dare.
You do that, Lauren, and I will never speak to you again.
I will never forgive you.
He is our dad - you can't!
I'm sorry about the kiss.
'You should have just given it to the police. Call me.
'Please, Lauren, come home.'
You should be at your exam.
I want to know what you're going to do.
Just go to your exam, Abi.
I dunno. I think she went back to the Vic.
Why would Jake say that he...
He was drunk, if he wasn't?
I-I don't know.
Except it's the only reason that you think he didn't do it.
I mean, how well do you really know him?
Can't you cover my shift?
Yeah. What's the big deal? Where's Tina gone anyway?
Are you worrying about tonight?
Oh, no, course not. That's fine.
-Where you going?
Are you joking me?
I think you can do a bit better than that, can't you, after ten years.
-We just don't want to make a fuss.
-Er, yeah, you do.
-Look, Martin thought...
-Martin thought what?
Well, Mum is looking after Rebecca, so it'll be nice to be close, that's all.
Right, you're coming to mine - I'll do your hair and make-up, give him something to think about.
After ten years, he wouldn't notice
if I turned up in my pyjamas and a mask.
Well, he is going to notice. So trust me.
Don't tell Mick. I'm cooking Tosh dinner.
Oh, what's she done to deserve that?
And, more to the point, what have YOU done to deserve that?
Don't be soft, Dad, I fell over.
I'm not the soft one.
Look, I tripped, all right? Was genuinely an accident.
I've had enough experience of all that to know the excuses.
Ashamed of myself for it but still...
She ain't done nothing.
-No, she never does, does she?
Do you know what? Believe what you want, all right?
We ain't got nothing to hide. We're going to go out tonight.
We're going to Beales, all right?
Wouldn't want her handiwork to go to waste.
She should be quite proud of that one.
Heard all about yours earlier.
Your son-in-law kicking off?
Ex-son-in-law. Spare me that, please.
Tracey, get her another one of those.
-All right, Sonia.
You still covering for your mum then?
-Yeah. Last day today, though.
-Could I have a white coffee to take away, please?
-Course you can.
Something to keep me awake.
So how's your mum doing then?
Good news, yeah - the tumour's shrunk.
-Oh, that's wonderful!
-It's a start.
-Well, give her my love, yeah?
-Yeah, course I will.
I heard about David.
I think Mum just realised that David
was never going to be cut out for family life.
Well, that's an understatement.
Had to bite my tongue every day with that man.
But then you can't expect people to be something they're not, can you?
I mean, I don't expect Martin to write me a poem.
I'm sure you wouldn't expect Phil to run about in a pinny, would you?
Sorry, I didn't mean...
No, no, I'm just picturing Phil the househusband.
He couldn't even get Denny to school on time this morning.
It's pretty impressive that he got him to school at all, isn't it?
You might have a point there.
I want us to fix this properly, yeah?
Like the grown-up you want me to be.
So I got this plan. I'm taking us out to dinner.
Just to Beales, yeah? Cos, I don't know...cash.
But come, yeah?
If we still mean anything to each other...
Well, if I still do to you...
Just come, Tosh, yeah? Please.
I'm off out on a job.
For landing Denny on you.
Look, you know how much the bar means to me,
but maybe I'm letting it take over a little.
All right, I am.
So what are you doing tonight?
I was going to get Johnny to cover and I thought we could go out.
Well, how about I cook, then? Hm?
Denny's going to see a mate after school,
so we could spend time together.
-That sound good?
-Don't sound bad.
-What time do you want me home?
-In time for dinner.
You should cut them out like a cancer.
Otherwise they'll rot the whole lot of you.
Your daughter married to Max Branning,
you'd be saying the same thing.
So you're going to throw him to the wolves, are you?
Can't do much with the police around.
Don't let other people interfere with family.
Much more satisfying to do it yourself.
I've just seen my daughter.
It was an accident.
Hazardous place, yours, from what I hear.
So this is your solution?
Skip work and spend the whole day drinking in a pub?
I'm going to...
I'm going to tell the police.
Yes, I'm just going to tell them what dad said he saw.
Because I'm sick of all of the lies.
Peter and Ian, they...
They need answers, and how are they going to get that
if everyone just keeps thinking of themselves before Lucy?
Your dad's left it a bit late to tell anyone about this.
-Police might think...
-It doesn't matter what they think, does it?
You know, they should know the truth, shouldn't they?
Even if it lands him in a cell next to Jake?
Now, I'm not defending your dad, darling,
but you girls don't need to go through that again.
Leave it to the police, Lauren.
It's their job.
Why did Dad not tell them?
Why does your dad do anything?
LAUREN SIGHS What do I do?
You just go on grieving for your friend.
Leave Jake, your dad and the police out of it.
That's my responsibility now.
Ain't you got a job to go to?
Go on, darling, off you go.
Get me another one.
No, that's next week.
Yeah, well, look in the diary.
Yeah, on the computer.
I'm not talking you through how to open a diary on the computer.
No, I'm at home.
This is my night off.
I deserve it.
Don't overdo it!
What? It's better to have too much than too little.
Oh, yeah? Who told you that?
Trust me, Sonia, you're going to look beautiful.
Feel like it's a first date.
Oh, really? That's nice.
Mm. Feel nervous.
Yeah, lucky you, after all these years.
Please don't start.
All right. I won't say nothing. Close your eyes.
Ten years married.
Everything you've been through.
You'll get through this.
I just can't remember the last time we just had a night out, you know?
I'm sure that's all you need.
I hope it's not awkward.
Sonia, he's your husband!
I know, I just hope that I find things to say.
Finding things to say has never been a problem in this family, has it, eh?
-You know what I think?
I think you're going to have a really nice time.
So why are we here so early?
So we can spend the most time together.
It's happy hour, isn't it?
-Nothing of the sort.
-So it's happy hour?
Here we go.
Oh, look, it's the grumpy lesbian from this morning.
What is this? A double date.
What are you doing here?
Get back to your flat - I'm wining and dining my lady.
-He's only joking.
No, I'm not!
Shut up! Tosh, Tosh! Oi! He doesn't mean it.
Er, I'll be back in a minute, yeah?
Yeah, this is her...
What, he's saying that he saw her?
Well...can you give me his number, please?
Well, your key still works, then.
Er, yeah. Sorry.
Oh, no, don't be sorry.
No, you can sneak in and tidy up any time you like.
Well, I just needed something to do.
I might actually take Tramp for a walk.
How'd your exam go?
I couldn't really concentrate.
No, it's not your fault.
Listen, thanks for earlier, anyway. What you said, with Lauren.
Yeah, well, we've been through enough, haven't we?
-Abs, why don't you just come home.
No, Dad, just leave it.
Please. You ain't still angry with me, are you?
-You still love your old dad, don't you?
-Of course I love you.
You know I'm sorry, Abs. For everything.
Yeah, I've heard that before.
Please, don't... Don't shut me out.
I've lost your mum, I've lost Oscar.
Lauren - she won't talk to me.
Look, Dad, I don't want to upset you...
Everything that's happened and I've got to see you over at Cora's.
Please, Abs, all right? I really...
I really feel like I just need you back at home.
You've told us everything, haven't you?
Yeah, course I have. I prom...
And there's nothing else?
Oh, hi. Welcome back. You're lucky we didn't wreck the place,
-being all on our own in here.
Expecting best service tonight, young lady.
Well, I'm sorry, I am on my own -
Fatboy's uncle's had a fall or something,
so he's looking after him.
And, obviously, nobody wants to bother Ian.
We've even got Billy doing shifts in here on Friday.
So, yeah, I am trying my best. I'm sorry.
Was it worth it?
Look, we can go somewhere else, yeah?
I don't mind.
Is here all right for you?
Actually, I'd prefer somewhere a little bit more quiet. It's my anniversary.
Oh. Er, yeah, OK. What about over there?
They won't be able to eavesdrop on our scintillating conversation now.
Want me to spell it to you.
Words to learn.
Why don't you shut up? You're so full of yourself.
Oh, don't do this, babe.
Please, talk to me.
Ah, good timing - got you well trained.
-Same to you.
Er, cancel that, will you, please?
So, get your order sorted out?
No. Tell me about your day.
Just tell me who it is, yeah?
Well, I told him to call if there was a problem, so I...
Well, go on then.
Do you mind?
-Well, can you give them another date or something?
Hang on, Johnny. SHE TUTS
Right, go on.
Well, how many's it...?
OK. OK, I'm coming.
No. No, no, no. I'm coming now.
I'm so sorry, babe. What can I do?
What is it?
Someone wants a big booking, a 21st or something.
And he can't handle that?
I'm the manager, it's my job.
-What about dinner?
-Look, I won't be long. I promise.
Oi, look at Roxy.
I ain't even joking.
I SWEAR she's the wrong colour!
So Ronnie grabs the bloke, right,
and I grabbed, like, you know the big water spray behind the bar?
So I've gone to spray...
Are you listening to my story?
Why are you looking at me funny? Is something wrong?
Are you all right? You look flushed.
Oh, I had a sunbed this morning.
-Well, it was fake tan.
Oh, no, does it look odd?
-D'you know what?
-I want to do something.
I want to get you very, very drunk.
-You can try.
-It's good, isn't it?
You, er, ready to order anything yet?
No, I'm... I'm still waiting.
Oh. I think there was a, um... A delay on the tubes and stuff.
Was there? He was coming on the tube.
-Oh, well, that'll be it, then, won't it?
Actually I'll get a beer, please?
-Yeah, for when he gets here.
Why are you still looking at me funny?
-No, I'm not.
-Something's wrong, isn't there?
-There is something wrong, isn't there?
I'm going to go to the bathroom.
No, listen, it's the light...
I'm going to go to the bathroom.
I better get some more wine...
What if Lauren goes to the police
and tells them that you saw Jake that night and didn't say anything,
and then they find this?
-Yeah, well, Abs, they won't.
-You don't know that!
And you were sleeping with her, so how do you think that'll look?
Listen, Lauren ain't going to go to the police.
I don't want to take any chances, Dad.
I don't want you going back to prison.
Actually, make that two bottles
and send one over there to those grumpy people,
make them cheer up.
Is everything all right with Roxy?
It's just it looks like there's something wrong with her face.
Do you serve food, or give your opinions on other people's girlfriends?
Well, when they look like they've been trapped in a bag of Doritos, I do.
You mind how you talk about her.
D'you think this is funny? Hm?
Why didn't you say something?
It was unfortunate. Never mind, sit down.
Sit down?! Do you know, this is from the stall.
From Bianca's stall in the market.
And I thought you were supposed to stop stuff like that being sold?
I tried to stop you!
I saw the bottle - I chucked it away.
Well, I put it on this morning.
Are you saying this is not what you were going for?
Oh, go and jump in the river, you arrogant prat!
Oi, and you - you tell your sister she better watch herself, yeah?!
Roxy, you look fine.
You might be starting a new trend.
You're not funny!
Listen, Roxy. Listen.
You are beautiful. You look beautiful, always.
No fake tan's ever going to stop that, come on.
Sit down and let's have dinner together, OK?
(I'm really embarrassed.)
Now I'm kind of embarrassed, too.
So let's take that bottle to go.
Cos I'm going to scrub that tan off you in the bathtub.
Keep the change. Thank you, thank you.
Look, I know it's none of my business but, um...
I-I really hate what I've done to you.
You know, both of you.
You know, when it happened, I lunged at her. She was drunk.
She tried to stop me.
I just thought it was important that you knew, that was all.
Kind of you to take the time to explain that.
Tina, I'm sorry.
She was mad anyway.
-You know how she found out, don't you?
Overheard you and your gobby sister shouting about it in the toilets.
The Vic, last week.
I'm beginning to think you've made this Martin up.
The tube was delayed.
He's stood you up.
Oh, and you looked really happy over there, didn't you?
You were bouncing about.
She ain't said a word to you all night.
-Look, you can tell me to shut up if you like, but...
Don't be silly, I was dancing in the shower. You know me.
Look, forget Martin, all right?
Let's you and me... Let's go out for a drink.
What about Tosh?
Give her time to calm down.
-I thought you wanted to make it work?
Oh, and going for a drink with me is really going to help, is it?
Well, I ain't going to tell her.
I dunno, I get scared.
Every time something's going really well,
I always do something to mess it up.
then you've got to stop doing that, haven't you?
How I am going to make it up to her?
Well, you tell her it ain't going to happen again.
And you tell her the kiss meant nothing.
Then you show her - you show her how much she means to you.
Next one's on you.
No, I've got to get back.
Phil, I'm back.
You know David robbed me blind on this place.
So where did she hit her head?
Er, on the corner there and then she was lying down there.
It was weeks ago, Abs. It's probably all gone by now.
Dad, the slightest bit of blood and they'll find it.
Pass me the bleach.
Upstairs playing a game with Tiff. How did it go?
Roxy was in Beales tonight. She's gone bright orange.
Ah, no, you shouldn't be laughing about it -
she's blaming you and your fake tan.
Don't worry, I'll deal with her. How'd it go tonight?
Back a bit early, aren't you?
You know, it's all your fault. You're such a loudmouth.
Tosh overheard us last week.
-What? What are you talking about?
-In the Vic.
When you kept going on about what's happened between me and Tina.
-She heard us?
-Yeah. Heard you. Yeah.
Well, I'm really sorry.
She was at the restaurant tonight with Tina.
I've never been so embarrassed.
She didn't tell Martin, did she?
No. No, he, um...
His tube was delayed.
Well, was he late then?
I'm really sorry.
What you should be sorry about is shouting your mouth off
-about my private business in pub toilets.
I'm going to go and get Rebecca.
-Do you want to have a little chat about it?
-Has he not phoned you or nothing?
His phone's dead. I'm sure we'll sort it out when I get in.
You don't deserve this.
It's just a rough patch, innit?
Rebecca, come on!
I DO want the same things you do.
Like us together for ever.
Like a family.
Like a-a baby.
Don't mess around, Tina, not with this.
I'm not. I love you.
Why you saying this now?
Because I love you.
And I want you to know how much.
And I want to do what makes you happy.
And you want a family, don't you?
We could have one. Our own one.
Is this really what you want?
I just said, I want what you want.
You're just going to change your mind,
you always do, it's just cos we had a fight.
No, I won't! We're together - I live here.
I-I want the same thing.
You shouldn't have wound me up.
Can I speak to someone dealing with the Lucy Beale murder case, please?
I've got some new information for them.
We just want to ask your dad to confirm his movements
-on Good Friday.
-I thought he'd already given a statement.
He has but we're following up on some new information
that we've just had come through.
Oh, right, well he won't be long...
Where were you?
I was here with Dad, I was revising.
-And you were in all night?
What about your dad?
Yes. Apart from maybe five minutes, when he took the dog out.
-And what time was that?
-I'm not sure.
Were you watching the TV, maybe listening to the radio?
Come on, you must have some idea of the time?
DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES
Mr Branning, DS Bryant. Just wanted to have a quick word.
-Yeah, of course.
-If you wouldn't mind....
Thank you, Abi, you've been very helpful.
-You all right, Abs?
What have you said to her? She looks upset.
We're just asking everyone to confirm their movements
the night Lucy Beale died.
Ready to go to the hearing?
I thought you'd tidied up.
What are you doing?
I can't remember if Lucy said the white shirt with this suit
or the blue one.
Well, I think the blue looks good as well. You all right?
I can't remember.
I'm forgetting things that she said and she liked.
I think she said the blue looks good with that suit.
I think she thought the white was too traditional.
Yeah, whereas the blue had a certain "retro credibility" about it.
-That was it.
Good. It's not just me then.
Don't worry, you don't need make-up. I've got an old ski mask somewhere.
What is the world coming to when you can't trust tanning products
sold by Bianca Butcher on her dodgy market stall, eh?
I'll see you later.
The new information that we've had suggested you saw Lucy Beale
returning home with Jake Stone that night. Is this correct?
Well, yeah. Yeah, it is correct.
Why didn't you mention it in your statement?
Cos I didn't think it was important at the time.
You had your man, I didn't think I needed to get involved.
Plus my daughter - she's got a history with Jake.
Yeah, well, that's not really good enough, is it?
Right, OK, it was stupid and I'm sorry.
Was Abi still awake when you got home?
What is this? You know all this, don't you?
-We're just trying to...
-Just cos I made a mistake, don't mean you
can question my daughter behind my back. Do you understand me?
She's getting headaches and she's got exams coming up.
Abi's your alibi, and if you'd told us
everything from the start then we wouldn't need to speak to her.
It's Mr Stone's hearing today
and this kind of information is essential for us to build our case.
Did it look like Jake had been drinking?
I don't know. No, I wouldn't say for sure.
I mean, the geezer's an alcoholic anyway,
so he can probably handle his drink. So no. No, I wouldn't swear to it.
What about Lucy?
Well, I think she looked fine. She looked great.
Right. You're going to have to come back down to the station
and re-issue your statement saying that you saw Lucy returning
with Mr Stone on the night that she died.
Right, and what about Abi?
No. No, she doesn't have to come in at this stage.
You can come in and make your statement
whenever it's convenient, but the sooner the better.
What do you want me to do? I warned you.
-Oi! I want a word with you!
-You win some, lose some.
-Thanks, that makes me feel better.
Bianca, look at me, I'm orange.
-No, it's more like a natural glow.
-I'll natural glow you in a minute.
-Have you read the instructions?
-I want my money back.
-There's no refunds.
-I want my money back.
Let's all calm down and talk about this like grown-ups, OK?
You said you would sort this out.
And I will. Please let me deal with it, OK?
Give me her money back.
You can take it out of your cut.
Give me her money back or I'm calling Trading Standards.
Thank you. And get rid of the rest of this stuff, yeah?
-I've had it.
-Cup of tea?
Look, Phil, I'm sorry about leaving you in the lurch yesterday.
But you can't be angry with me for worrying about our business.
Well, if you can't cope...
I can cope, I just thought you'd support me more.
I bankrolled you, didn't I?
But if you don't want me around the place.
-Of course I do.
-Well, it don't feel like it.
I was hoping you'd come in today.
We're having trouble with the lighting rig.
I think a fuse has gone.
Well, you know how to change a fuse, don't you?
You're very beautiful when you're angry.
-Is that the best you can do?
-No, the rest will come later.
I'm going to cook for you - a special Latvian dinner, remember?
No, no, no, I'm never leaving the house again.
Come on, we're going to have the place for ourselves,
-I want to spoil you.
-Ronnie's working and I can't leave Amy.
Hey, I'm going to take care of it. Trust me.
It's going to be special.
Well, it better be.
Getting angry with the police isn't going to help.
You need to apologise.
Abs, they can't just barge in here and start asking you questions.
Dad, they're only doing their job
and then you kick off like someone who can't control their temper.
I bet you can't wait for university, get away from all this.
I'd go today if I could.
Do you know how much a two-bedroom flat with a garden around here is?
Who wants a two-bedroom flat with a garden?
Us, we can't start a family living in a rented flat with Aleks.
We need our own space.
We could always keep the baby in the bottom drawer.
Knew you were a natural. Is that where you kept Zsa Zsa?
No, she was in the top drawer.
Bottom drawer was princess clothing only, we had matching outfits.
We'd go around pretending to be the Queen's Russian nieces.
Got a few funny looks when we signed on at the social.
I can't wait to have an excuse to play all those kids' games.
Of course, I used to want to be the prince.
Did you just say you like playing with kids?
That's great, cos I need a baby sitter tonight.
-Yeah, we're going out tonight.
I thought you might do it out of the kindness of your heart.
-£10 an hour.
It's a deal. I'll take it off next month's rent, yeah?
-I thought we were going out tonight?
This is the perfect chance to get a little practice looking after a kid.
-Abi's in bits...
-It wasn't me.
-She should be revising.
-I didn't do anything.
-Right, so who called the police?!
Yeah, I should have known it would be you, Cora.
Nothing to hide, have you, Max?
You've always got to get involved, haven't you?
Absolutely, when it concerns my grandchildren.
I don't know what you're hiding, but keep the girls out of it.
There you go, as usual you ain't got a clue what you're talking about.
Out. Get out. Come on, out.
Lucky for you I kept your sudden interest
in cleaning the car lot to myself.
Cora, that isn't what it looked like...
I don't want to know. Keep the girls out of your mess.
Here, B, Mo says she can help you out with the fake tan.
-I spoke to Fat Elvis, he'll take the lot.
-50 quid! I might as well give it away.
-Well, that would work too.
-Oh, stop it, Mo!
You're all heart, aren't you, eh?
Here, you're the one who put her on to the stuff in the first place.
Shut up, you dopey cow. What's the matter with you?
-It's all right. Here you are, I got it.
Thank you. Oh, thank you.
You should see my passport photo, it's like a wanted poster.
-It's all right, I'll get that.
-No, it's all right, I've got it here.
-Honestly, I insist. And a cup of tea as well, please.
I'm sorry I got a bit narked earlier.
I get a bit overprotective about my girls sometimes.
That's the trouble with being a single parent. Lovely, cheers.
Actually, do you mind if I join you?
Oh, look, if it isn't Laurel and Hardy.
-Or is it Grumpy and Dopey?
-So says the Wicked Witch of the West.
Shouldn't you be at the Albert having cocktails and canapes?
No, I don't get paid enough to drink at the Albert.
Yeah, we thought we'd slum it in here with you instead.
You love it here, it's like a home from home.
That's two great women you've let slip through your fingers.
You've always had too much to say for a barmaid, you know that.
Lauren's just as bright,
but Abi's always been the one to put the work in.
She's like her mum like that, I suppose,
she knows what she wants and is willing to graft to make it happen.
So Lauren takes after you then?
For her sake, I hope not.
What about you? You got kids?
No. It's not really on the cards at the moment.
Right. Don't mean to be too personal.
No, no, it's fine.
Well, my fiance and I, we're in the middle of splitting up.
It's fine. We just don't really want the same things any more.
Were you together long?
Wow, that's a long time.
It's been over for a while,
we just don't know how to move on. Excuse me.
I need to go.
You won't forget that statement, when you're next passing, will you?
It was nice talking to you, Mr Branning.
So, are you looking forward to tonight?
-I just thought it'd be fun.
Do you know what?
It isn't just one big party having a kid, you know.
It's really hard, I made a right hash of it with Zsa Zsa.
You're just saying that, I bet you were great.
No. No, there were days
when I would have done anything to stop her crying.
Sometimes you just want to walk away but you can't because it's a kid.
You know, and you've got to worry about someone else
and you've got responsibilities. And it's really hard.
And that is after the nine months of hell.
My ankles swelled up,
I was sick, you wouldn't believe the amount of tinned sardines I ate...
Oi, you know me, I love all that stuff.
We're going to be a great team.
You worry about being fun-loving, wacky mum,
and I'll be boring, practical mum.
You've had your go at being pregnant, now it's my turn.
What do you say?
Hi, it's Aleks. I need to see you.
When you get this message please call me back.
I promise it'll be worth your while.
So the punters could mix their own cocktails, like a masterclass
or something, they'll be paying for all the ingredients.
I think that's great.
I didn't think you were coming in?
Oh, well, I had five minutes.
Well, we're just having a meeting,
trying to come up with a few ideas to boost mid-week.
Right, well I've been thinking about that as it happens
and I've got an idea.
How about a business networking evening?
Introduce like minded businesspeople who might want to
help each other.
Actually, yeah, that's a really good idea.
It's a great idea, it's just the sort of clientele we're after.
I know a few people who'd come along, some of my motor traders,
couple of scrap metal merchants, they all like a drink.
Well, why don't you leave it to us to sort out the invites.
All right then. You still want me to take a look at this lighting rig?
Yeah, might as well.
I'll give you a hand.
Are you sure you're going to be all right?
Yeah. Yeah, yeah, of course,
we've been looking forward to this all day, haven't we?
It's not orange, OK? It's a natural glow.
It's looking really good now.
Amy, you going to be a good girl for Mummy, yes?
-OK, my number's on the side.
-Don't worry. See you later.
All right, see you later.
Just us, eh? Good. What shall we do?
Go to the park?
Oh, it's getting a little bit chilly.
Well, we could stay inside and play, build a camp?
-With all the sharp edges?
-Let's make cakes.
I don't think so, that kitchen's a death trap.
I tell you what, why don't you sit here and watch telly
and I'm going to make your tea, all right?
Don't sit too close, it's bad for your eyes.
Now what shall we do?
We always knew that Jake was going to plead not guilty.
If he had any decency he wouldn't put us through this.
Every bit of Lucy's life is going to get pawed over in that court.
You don't have to go. Lots of people don't.
I want to see him pay for what he did.
So you don't think there's going to be any problems?
We're confident of getting the right result.
I'm going to get changed.
"Confident of getting the right result"? What does that mean?
-Well I checked the wiring. It was just a fuse.
-I reckon you was right, what you said this morning.
Yeah, well, I've missed working in a bar.
And I should be at these meetings.
So, from now on, I'm going to get more involved with the Albert.
Salad and fish fingers.
That's the fish, I took the batter off.
That's the best bit.
It's really bad for you. My mum always said...
Actually, I'm going to pop out, won't be long.
-Just popping out.
Thought I might get us a bottle of wine.
And when I get back we can pretend we're in one of them teen movies.
Don't, those movies always end with some geezer in a hockey mask
killing the baby sitter.
Right, Amy, ice cream and cake for tea, yeah?
How much, tenner? Good lad, good lad.
-Make sure you get his money.
-I've put in.
-Yeah, I know you've put in, don't I?
-You all right?
Oh, you all right? Thought you were studying?
No, I needed a break.
Come on, the more the merrier. Let's have it.
You going to have a tenner on Croatia?
It's the World Cup kick-off.
Right, well, I was hoping to get you alone.
That sounds great, babe. But it's the opening game, innit?
Oh, right, you're all right then.
Checkmate there, Jay. Only one thing for it now, pal.
-Save my seat.
-Yeah, see you in a minute.
You've eaten all the nuts, you dopey cow. There's none left.
Get another packet then.
What's wrong, babe?
-You all right?
-My tummy hurts.
Everyone was so against Dad, I just said it.
I said he was with me all night and now I've lied to the police.
But he was only gone for ten minutes.
Well, I was asleep most of the time, so I don't actually know how
long he was gone for.
You don't think...?
Jay, my dad is a lot of things but he's not a murderer.
I just don't want him to go back to prison.
Then you've done the right thing.
Yeah, but what if they find out that I've lied?
They'll think Dad has something to hide. Or that I do.
All right. Yep. OK, OK, OK, I'm coming.
And we have piradzini. The best bread in the world.
Krejums. Very hard to get, that goes with the soup.
And that's parsley. From England, I think.
I've never seen you so happy.
You should get everything from the Polish schlep.
Sklep, darling, sklep.
But it's not the food that makes me happy.
It's you, baby.
To Roxy, my girlfriend, stunning in any colour.
Emma wouldn't go into much detail
-but someone saw Lucy with Jake on Good Friday.
She wouldn't say, but it's good news. Someone saw them.
Maybe someone made a mistake.
No, we're the ones who made the mistake. And Phil.
It looks like it was Jake.
Well, let's hope it goes smoothly then.
Wait, do you know something?
It was my dad. He said that he saw Lucy
and Jake getting out of a cab on that night.
He said that Jake looked sober.
Why haven't you told me this before?
Because I've only just found out, Peter.
Where are you going?
Max! Open the door.
You saw Lucy with Jake the night she died?!
-Right, you told him that, did you?
-Why didn't you say anything?
Cos it isn't that straightforward.
-What are you hiding, Max?
-What's he talking about?
-Calm down, Peter.
All of a sudden he's a witness?
-This is not helping anybody.
-But he knows something.
Max is cooperating with the investigation.
What else are you keeping secret from us?
-I'm not hiding anything.
-Peter, do yourself a favour and go home.
-What do you know, Max?
What are you hiding? Just stop lying.
-I've got to stand there and take this?
-Max, step away, please.
I will step away. Get him out of my house.
-I'm not finished with you yet.
-Come on, Peter.
-I need to know.
The last thing your dad needs is you fighting with everyone, all right?
How do you know what the best thing for my dad is?! You don't care.
-Of course I do.
-It's just a job to you! This is my life!
Lucy was my sister! I'm going to talk to my dad.
You all right?
You're welcome to stay if you want. You know, cup of tea.
-No. Look, I've got to go.
White and no sugar.
That's a funny way to take whisky.
-Right, take a seat.
Sorry about the mess.
You know, Peter shouldn't have spoken to you like that.
He's a young man who's lost his sister.
-Honestly, I've had far worse.
I've been called pretty much every name under the sun,
I've been physically shoved out of a house,
and, oh, I've had a pint chucked in my face once.
Those are the bad days.
So what are the good days?
It's weird - you know, meeting people when they're going
through the most painful time of their lives - you know,
looking into their eyes, seeing that fear but not flinching.
I mean, if I can do that, I can do anything.
-Does that make sense?
Yeah. Not sure I could do it.
I wonder how long I'll be able to.
It's just this case - I just -
I don't feel like I'm doing them any good.
You know, it's getting to me more than usual.
Well, you know, young girl like Lucy, it's bound to.
You know the night I took Ian to see her body at the morgue,
when I got home I just couldn't stop crying.
I'm sorry, I should not be off-loading this. Not to you.
What? Public Enemy Number One, you mean?
No, of course not.
It's all right. It's the truth, innit?
I thought I could handle that.
Well, people have got short memories.
Once Jake is convicted, things will return to normal. Slowly.
No, no, no.
See, there she is, DC Summerhayes - you've clicked straight back in.
At the end of the day, I'm the police, I'm an outsider,
I'm the temporary friend.
Yeah, sounds lonely.
Erm, maybe I will have that whisky.
I'm so sorry, it was all my fault.
We had tea and then we were playing a game.
We were just running around too much.
Have you been drinking?
-I had one.
Were you drinking in front... PHONE BEEPS
-We were just playing a game.
Look, why don't you go back and finish your dinner?
Yeah, we can put Amy to bed.
No, no, we're not going to leave Amy here.
Listen, you stay here, I'll be back in five minutes.
I'm so sorry.
It's fine. Really, it is fine. Isn't it, Amy?
Can we play another game?
No. No, I think we're going to go to bed now.
-So sorry we've ruined your night.
-No, you haven't. Honestly, look...
Will you just do me a favour
-and look after her for a couple of minutes?
I'm so sorry I left you.
Don't worry. You know, you can't work in a pub
and not get used to people chucking up, can you?
What's this about you having a drink?
You're not going to believe this, I suddenly had a wobble.
I could hear myself sounding exactly like my mum.
You've got nothing to worry about, yeah? We're a team, remember.
As long as you promise never to take
the batter off the fish fingers again.
And I promise no more...no more kissing other girls, yeah?
-That's a deal. I love you.
-I love you.
Please can you read me a story?
I tell you what, how about Tosh tells you a story about this
really big fire and a very brave lady who saved everyone?
I really like your sister.
I want to show you how serious I am about Roxy, I've been saving.
All your money back. Every pound you paid me.
And you think this means you're not guilty?
You got a clear conscience?
I don't want your money, and I don't want you anywhere near my sister.
Can I ask you a question?
Why did you get involved with Lucy?
-Sorry, I've over-stepped...
-No, no, it's not that. It's...
It's just I don't really have an answer.
I wanted to feel alive.
I wanted to feel something.
Say it out loud, it sounds pathetic.
It's what we all want.
I have to go.
You don't have to.
Please don't go.
Lauren thinks Max could be lying...
Yeah? Course she does. It's how the whole family operates.
Did he see Lucy? I mean, was Jake hammered? Wasn't he?
We've got to find out if Max is telling the truth.
Peter, I am back at the restaurant, OK? Denise is coming home.
She'll walk through that door, take one look at this place
and get on the first plane back out of here. Do me a favour,
-get yourself a bin bag and help?
-But if Max is lying
-we need to find out if...
-Peter! Will you please stop banging on!
Nothing is going to bring Lucy back. There is nothing we can do but wait.
If Max, for once in his perverted life, is telling the truth,
and IF Jake develops a conscience and changes his plea,
then we'll know. And Emma will phone me.
Get yourself a bin bag.
I'll just stop "banging on".
What? What, have I got a bogey or something?
Is there something dodgy going on at the gym?
-Why would you ask that?
-I dunno. Drugs, steroids...
Amy, come down here. Your cereal's going mushy.
You were home gone midnight. You seeing Charlie Cotton again?
It's called running your own business, Roxy. All right?
I was at work, went straight home. Home, straight back to work again.
I haven't got time to be meeting up with men.
You HAVE got a bogey.
Amy! Get your shoes on. I'm going to take you to school.
It's when there's more than one fork, that's what freaks me out.
You're going to be fine, all right?
This time next year, you'll probably be managing the place.
Year after that you might be somewhere posh, like the Ritz. Head waiter, eh?
You know, the first time I went out for an Indian,
I drank from the water bowl and ate the lemon.
Pops, look, you're not going be running the place on your own.
You ain't cooking the burgers.
-And guess what? One fork at a time. It's easy!
Right. I am gonna be late.
No, you're gonna be great.
Yeah. I am, aren't I?
-Look, you know I always appreciate your advice.
-Let him walk.
Denny! I bet your PE bag's still at school.
You've advertised this make-your-own-cocktail thing
at the Albert next week, online.
-You've got no idea who's going to turn up.
Get your security sorted out.
Couple of bruisers straight from the boxing gym?
-Look, you want me to back off, just say.
-No. No, I don't. Thank you.
Bye. Denny, if I have to take you to school in the car
there'll be no pocket money.
Oh! You cannot have veggie burgers without onions,
-that's a golden rule.
-Is it? Noted.
-I'm more front of house, though, Mas. Thanks.
Even Zainab couldn't fault my veggie burgers,
WHEN she let me in the kitchen.
-Waiter-in-waiting and all that.
-Tell you, one thing I do not miss
about her is her going on and on in my ear
like a parrot with a problem.
-It's my trial, Mas. Ian's back today.
-Oh, is he?
Oh, good. Good...
Right, well, yeah. Go on, off you go, then.
Restaurants do not run themselves, Billy. It's...
It's about the teamwork.
-You can't come in. We ain't even open yet.
-I'm hiding. Friday the 13th. Seriously unlucky.
Ugh! Is that morning breath or has something died in your mouth?
Yeah, why not?
No. No, Amy's fine now, cheers.
Like her mother, doesn't know when she's had
too much of a good thing.
Want me to check the bathroom?
No. Can't imagine they'd be there. Just eat your breakfast, yeah?
I'm on lates. Tina's gone to get croissants.
All right. Look, if you don't mind, that'd be great.
Ronnie's going to kill me if I've lost them. It's the...
Blah, blah, blah...
Have you lost your keys in my sock drawer?
I've seen the signs, I've been here before.
And if you... If you are sleeping with my sister,
you have the guts to tell me now, all right?
Because this, this... was only ever casual.
I am not even into you.
-I am not sleeping with your sister.
-You snuck off last night!
You snuck off and you met up with her.
All right? I saw you.
I saw your little package.
What was it, a present?
MOBILE PHONE RINGS
How would I even have time for another woman?
I work every chance.
You know, rich people say money doesn't matter.
They're wrong. It does matter...
It wasn't a present. It was payment. Open it. Open it!
You're working for Ronnie.
She was paying me to date you.
I haven't run that fast since I was in the Olympics.
Denise is back today...
But Ian never said anything about setting up. You know, cooking.
When I left him he was tidying the living room
and polishing his pained look.
But I can't get hold of him, Pete, and I can't get in there.
I'll get changed and I'll come over.
-Yeah. We both will.
Couple of hours.
Can you take charge, Bill?
Yeah, I can.
I can take charge.
Sorry, I just...
So I thought you said talking to this cabbie was a bad idea.
Yeah, I thought tracking him down was.
But I didn't know you had his number.
Why haven't you called him?
Because that cabbie knows.
And no matter how scared you are of the answers,
we should know. I should know.
But... You know, you've got to get back on the stall.
And you ain't had breakfast yet. And you're too intense anyway.
Why don't you just get something to eat, and...
I'll go talk to him on my own.
So, to prove she ain't scared, right,
of all this "superstitious rubbish" on Friday the 13th...
she walks out straight under the ladder,
-trips over the black cat...
-Yeah, cos you better watch that today for starters.
..falls smack, Mas, right on her artery,
right in the middle of the broken mirror.
So your school friend died?
She had some very nasty grazes.
You cannot hide from a date, Teen.
Tosh ain't my date, Shirley, she's my life partner.
I am such an idiot.
It's all right. Don't worry about it.
No, Max. Last night...
I don't know what you think I'm like, but..
I don't do that sort of thing. All right? I never have.
I can't believe I fell asleep.
You know, this morning I nearly walked straight into Peter Beale.
Do you have any idea how serious it would have been
if he'd seen me leaving your house at that time?
It's not just my job on the line. I mean, what if Abi had come home?
How would you have explained that to her?
OK. All right. I know.
We forget about it, all right? It never happened.
It's fine. Yeah, I understand.
Listen, don't feel bad about it.
It's my fault.
bit of a trademark of mine.
It was just nice talking to someone who didn't judge me, that's all.
I probably would have told Abi that I really liked you.
It's fine. We'll forget it.
-I am so embarrassed.
Coming out to your mum
and her taking you down the doctor's for medication -
Being forced to go on a date with your neighbour's son -
that's quite embarrassing.
And not just because I could see over the top of his head.
Not being allowed to go to your sister's wedding
unless you bring a bloke and wear a dress...
-But it's all right with your mum now?
Tina's my family now.
Dozy airhead. Takes three hours to buy two croissants.
Argues the toss, stands me up.
Gets round Girlie Shirley and starts acting like she's 13.
Yeah, but she's kind.
And I can't see over the top of her head, so...
She's my choice. She chooses me.
Everyone else can do one.
Excuse me. What are you doing here?
What do YOU want?
-I kind of like...
-What do you want?
You came back.
Well, I said I would, didn't I?
Yeah, I... I knew you would.
-I missed you.
I'll...go put the kettle on.
What was the weather like? Did you have a good time?
If you'd called I'd have come and picked you up from the airport.
I... I was going to tidy the kitchen. Just...
Oh, look, let me unpack and I'll...
I found this.
Lucy made it when she was a little girl.
For Father's Day.
It's OK, you know?
It's all going to be OK.
Don't lie. OK, whatever words you say right now, do not lie.
I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to hurt you. I was trying to make you happy.
-You can't buy me happy.
-But you were, weren't you?
-You don't think I could get a date with Aleks by myself?
-I think you always...
No, I think you make bad choices, Roxy.
They're MY choices! Do you understand that? My choices!
You don't get to decide who I go out with.
You don't get to decide what I wear
and you don't get to decide what time my daughter goes to bed.
-Amy needs a routine on a school night!
Back off! I can't breathe, Ronnie!
You know what? You, you have not chilled out since New Year's,
Am I that gross, that you've got to pay a bloke to sleep with me?
You're amazing, Roxy.
Anyone who is lucky enough to get close to you is gonna respect you.
I am not gonna have some man come in to our family and hurt you again.
You're my little sister!
-Look at him.
He had to have a glass of water and a sit down.
-So Johnny looked dodgy, didn't he?
-He looks like a choir boy.
I mean, do we need to talk, Phil?
I don't know. Do we?
Are you sure you can handle this cocktail night, Sharon?
-Just you and a choir boy?
-It won't just be me and Johnny.
Then get rid.
You're the one who said you was gonna give them a call.
-But I didn't call them.
-No, because you were busy.
So I called them for you. Do you want me to be the sort of bloke
who don't look out for you?
You're the one who said security would be a good idea.
Yeah, well, it IS a good idea.
Well, then, call it a present. From me.
HE CLEARS THROAT
(You are my eyes and ears.)
All right, Ian.
-She wants to have a baby?
-No, WE want to have a baby.
-No, you don't.
-Yes, I do.
No, Tosh has told you that you do.
-I have got an own mind, Shirley.
-Why is she hiding in here?
Cos we were looking after Amy last night.
Tosh had a wobbly and went all Health and Safety on me.
So I just... I needed a breather, just a little breather,
just to know that if it happens again, I can cope.
-And do you know what? I can.
-You know what will happen, don't you?
You'll end up holding the baby again. That baby.
-This is how this is all going to turn out, ain't it?
And another thing, Tina, another downer,
you don't like kids.
No... I had Zsa Zsa and I couldn't cope.
You know, a kid with a kid. And I was on my own.
This is different. This is me and Tosh.
It'll bring us together, it's bonding.
-I'm gonna get it right the second time, aren't I?
-Yeah, exactly. Thank you, Mas.
You see, and the other minor detail, Shirley,
is that my relationship, it's got naff-all to do with you. Kisses.
You see, I think you can make your own luck.
Mas. Mas. Brilliant. Brilliant...
Listen, Ian's having a baby over there.
Well, not an actual baby.
Anyway, I've got to wash up and we haven't got a temporary chef,
so I said, "Mas can do veggie." He said, "Mas can do veggie?"
I said, "Yeah," and he said, "Get him over here, then,
-"he can do some veggie burgers." He'll pay you!
-Ian wants me to do a shift?
Yeah. You'd be saving my neck and all,
cos I'm more of a deep-fat fryer. Oh, and Mas.
Free chips on me for a week, yeah?
Teamwork, Mas. It's what it's all about.
See? Friday the 13th, means nothing.
There's a few dregs in there. You can probably get a small glass out of it.
-Are you throwing a tantrum?
-You know what,
I wouldn't want you to think you haven't had full payment,
what with just being a poor little Latvian boy.
I was trying to give her the money back.
-Did your sister tell you that?
-Whatever, Aleks. I haven't got time for lies, all right?
Oi, I wanted croissants for my breakfast, not my dinner!
There was not one thing I said throughout the whole affair...
-..that I did not mean!
Affair?! I'm sorry, you seem to be mistaking a cash transaction
for something anybody ever cared about, all right?
And for the record, No, it was not worth it.
And if I was going to pay for a bloke, let me tell you something.
I would pay for a younger bloke.
One that hasn't got stupid floppy girl hair,
and one who has got a little bit more about him.
If you know what I mean. And I think you know what I mean, Aleks.
You listen to me. I am not a liar.
I said I like you because I mean it. You're funny.
You are a mad woman in tart clothes.
You are more than enough woman for any man.
More than a handful, if you know what I'm saying.
Are you calling me fat?
I'm saying I'm surprised to have fallen in love with someone
whose skirt shows her bottom.
Go on, then, snog her!
I am ashamed for taking your sister's money.
You know, I thought, "A couple of dates, why not?
"It's nothing serious, anyway. There's no harm."
There IS harm, I know.
I honestly am sorry for what I've done.
Yeah, you're right.
Saying sorry isn't enough.
I am stupid.
You're so beautiful. You deserve much better.
Well, I hope the next man who falls in love with you
will treat you right.
I told you, I can't. I don't remember.
You do my job, you see a lot of English people fall out of cab.
Well, maybe you're not the person I'm looking for, then.
I won't talk to police.
My papers are being updated.
People in your country make conclusion. Scapegoats.
I'm just trying to find out what happened to my mate.
She was alive.
Pretty girl. Sad eyes.
My cab stop in George Street. Stupid man she is with,
he is so drunk he fall out of cab on floor.
Can't stand. Can't walk. Can't talk.
Pretty girl ask me help him inside. I have work.
I say no. I say she should leave him.
Let him sleep in gutter. Teach him bad lesson.
I drive away.
Next week, I see her face in paper. Pretty picture.
It say she has been murdered.
Do you remember anything else?
I mean, there's more money in it for you.
Let me drive you home, we will talk.
I will see what else I can remember.
-Is that what you said to her?
-Who is this?
-"Pretty girl, talk to me"? Is that what it was, was it?
-Well, what? How do you know it wasn't him?
Do you really think he'd be backing up Jake's story if it was him
that did it?
He said Jake was so drunk he couldn't even get himself
out of a gutter.
He can't have killed Lucy.
OK. So then why is Max lying?
What dad wants their daughter chasing around random cabbies?
I know him. All right?
He said what he said to protect me.
He'll just say that he lied to protect me.
You know, maybe he did, I don't know.
We just need to work it all out, Peter.
But we need to watch my dad.
Both of us, from now on. Every single move.
-And we can't trust anyone, all right?
Why don't you stay and wait here? I can be back in my lunch break.
Oh, yeah? That gonna cost me extra?
Maybe, maybe not.
Let me tell you something.
If you ever take payment from my sister again,
I will string you up.
That sounds very interesting.
-OK, OK, OK, I promise! Sweetheart. I promise.
-I'm sorry. I need to take this.
-It's fine. It's fine. Go on.
I'll see you later.
Yeah, see you.
-HE TALKS IN LATVIAN
Daddy, Mummy says you come home now?
