BABY CRYING

FOOTSTEPS COMING UPSTAIRS

0:01:070:01:09

Quiet as the grave in here. Where's me welcoming committee?

0:01:140:01:18

Jean? What's happened?

0:01:190:01:21

Right. I'm off.

0:01:280:01:29

All right, sweetheart. Do you fancy a film tonight?

0:01:290:01:32

-I thought you had plans.

-They got cancelled.

0:01:320:01:35

Sorry, Dad, I told Lauren I'd go to hers. But we can go tomorrow?

0:01:350:01:38

-Yeah, all right.

-Bye.

-See you later.

DOOR SLAMS

DOORBELL AND LAUGHTER

0:01:440:01:47

-Tanya?

-LAUGHTER CONTINUES, BELL RINGS

0:01:470:01:50

-Tanya still here?

-Yep. Follow the racket.

0:01:530:01:56

What's the matter with you? You got the hump?

0:01:580:02:00

Refill?

0:02:110:02:12

-Jack?

-Sorry, what?

0:02:120:02:16

-You OK?

-Yeah, just trying to get in touch with my daughter.

0:02:160:02:20

Ain't spoken to her for a while.

0:02:220:02:24

-You want some more tea?

-Yeah. Go on.

0:02:240:02:28

I did mention it to you last week.

0:02:340:02:36

You need to get the stronger cream from the chemist

0:02:360:02:38

and if it doesn't work then take her to see the doctor.

0:02:380:02:41

Do you have to write it down? It's only a bit of nappy rash.

0:02:410:02:44

I have to write everything down for the changeover.

0:02:440:02:47

Someone else will be taking over as of tomorrow.

0:02:470:02:50

Eh? But we don't want no-one new.

0:02:500:02:51

Don't worry, the new case worker will have all my notes,

0:02:510:02:54

there'll be no disruption.

0:02:540:02:57

-And there's nothing else troubling you?

-No. I'm just a bit tired.

0:02:570:03:00

All right. Well, good luck with everything.

0:03:010:03:05

-And make sure you get that cream.

-Yes, I will.

0:03:050:03:08

-Thanks, Graham.

-Thanks.

0:03:100:03:12

See you.

0:03:120:03:14

Brilliant.

0:03:170:03:18

That's all we need, isn't it? Someone new sticking their oar in.

0:03:180:03:21

Who cares? Social workers change all the time. They're all useless.

0:03:210:03:24

I've got to go or Janine's going to go mental again.

0:03:240:03:26

All right, well, I'll pick up the cream.

0:03:260:03:28

-I've got to go see Jay anyway.

-Er, no, Lo.

0:03:280:03:30

I don't care what he said, I can't just stop seeing him.

0:03:300:03:32

Forget it. He's right, OK? It's too risky.

0:03:320:03:35

-But, Pops...

-I'll see you later.

0:03:350:03:37

Great.

0:03:390:03:41

-I bet Alan Sugar eats breakfast.

-When I'm making his money, then I'll stop for breakfast.

0:03:410:03:45

You can at least have this.

0:03:450:03:46

No time. The cleaning stock's arrived, I've got to sign for it.

0:03:460:03:49

-Five minutes is not going to hurt.

-This deal is going to set us up, it's three grand profit.

0:03:490:03:53

Mm. Nice wedding fund.

0:03:530:03:54

And this is just the beginning, I promise.

0:03:540:03:56

KNOCKING

0:04:080:04:10

-What are you two doing? You know it's nearly half nine.

-Come in.

0:04:200:04:24

-BABY CRYING

-You're good with kids. Can you sort her out for me?

0:04:240:04:26

-What's wrong with her?

-I don't know.

0:04:260:04:29

-Where's Janine?

-Gone away.

0:04:290:04:31

-Where?

-It don't matter.

0:04:310:04:33

Well, when's she coming back?

0:04:330:04:34

Can you just go upstairs, please, Billy?

0:04:340:04:36

What, she's just left Scarlett?

0:04:360:04:38

-Why's she gone away?

-Attention. It's an attention thing. Women do it, Bill.

0:04:400:04:45

And when she comes back - which she will -

0:04:450:04:47

I want everything under control.

0:04:470:04:49

So that means I look after the firm and you take care of the child.

0:04:490:04:52

But... but Michael! Michael, I'm not a babysitter.

0:04:530:04:56

And no-one needs to know about Janine. That's really important.

0:04:560:05:00

-Yeah? Shtoom.

-OK.

0:05:000:05:02

BABY CRYING

0:05:040:05:06

Michael, hi. I'm looking for Janine. There's no-one at the office.

0:05:090:05:13

-Janine's not around.

-OK. Right. When will she be back?

0:05:130:05:17

Later.

0:05:170:05:18

Who in their right mind would leave an expensive wedding dress outside the charity shop?

0:05:210:05:28

Someone who didn't want to get married?

0:05:280:05:30

Don't look at me, I got rid of mine weeks ago.

0:05:300:05:32

If you two are going into town, drop it into the dry cleaners for me, eh?

0:05:320:05:37

What's wrong with the laundrette?

0:05:370:05:38

I don't trust the laundrette. Not since Dot's left.

0:05:380:05:42

It's nice. It's got to be worth at least two hundred quid.

0:05:420:05:45

If Max pulled his finger out, you could use it.

0:05:460:05:49

-Haven't you set a date yet?

-He's still working it out.

0:05:490:05:54

We're not asking him to choose the lottery numbers.

0:05:540:05:57

Mum, just give it a rest, yeah?

0:05:570:06:00

He's been in a right mood since last night.

0:06:000:06:02

I think it's just work stressing him out, you know. I don't want to push it.

0:06:020:06:05

Hi, Billy. I've got a parcel here for Janine.

0:06:170:06:19

-She ain't here.

-I tried the office but it's shut.

0:06:190:06:22

Yeah. Michael's over there now. But Janine ain't.

0:06:220:06:24

-BABY CRYING

-Oh, has she left you with Scarlett?

0:06:240:06:27

No, no, Michael has.

0:06:270:06:29

Well, there was no one else to, you know...

0:06:290:06:32

Look, Mas, I shouldn't really be saying anything. I'll just go check on her.

0:06:320:06:35

-Has something happened?

-No, no.

0:06:350:06:38

No, no, no, everything's fine. Everything's normal.

0:06:380:06:40

-She'll be back soon.

-Mm.

-Not that she's gone anywhere. Exactly.

0:06:400:06:45

OK. Erm... maybe you can sign for it?

0:06:460:06:51

Yeah, yeah.

0:06:510:06:53

Oh, yeah, you see? I think I could pull that off.

0:06:550:06:57

No, you need a more '80s vibe.

0:06:570:06:59

Big old shoulder pads, nice long train...

0:06:590:07:01

-Bridesmaids in peach...

-Oh no, peach ain't my colour.

0:07:010:07:04

Excuse me, who said you're a bridesmaid?

0:07:040:07:06

By the time you two get married we'll be best mates.

0:07:060:07:08

Living in a retirement home.

0:07:080:07:11

DOOR SLAMS

0:07:110:07:13

Hello, love. You all right?

0:07:170:07:19

Er, just... I was looking for my phone. You ain't seen...?

0:07:190:07:22

It's in the kitchen. Yeah. It's in the kitchen.

0:07:220:07:24

Someone dumped it at the charity shop, babe.

0:07:320:07:34

We were just... Just mucking about and that.

0:07:340:07:38

-I'd better make a move.

-All right.

-Cos I'm meeting Jack in the Vic.

0:07:390:07:43

-So...

-Yeah.

-See you later.

0:07:430:07:45

Bye.

0:07:450:07:47

And she left the baby behind?

0:07:530:07:55

I don't know if she's definitely gone - Billy wasn't talking much sense.

0:07:550:07:58

-TEXT ALERT

-Tamwar. Your phone.

0:07:580:08:01

You know it wouldn't surprise me if she had.

0:08:010:08:03

Those two feed off drama like oxygen.

0:08:030:08:05

Maybe I've got it wrong. Billy was being a bit evasive, that's all.

0:08:050:08:08

-TEXT ALERT

-Tamwar!

0:08:080:08:11

-Zainab. Do not read his messages.

-He won't see. Sh!

0:08:130:08:16

Tamwar, you'd better get down here right now!

0:08:190:08:22

Yeah, I'm fully aware that Mrs Butcher is handling it

0:08:220:08:24

but I'm a partner in the company, you see, so I can sign the documents and I'm taking over.

0:08:240:08:29

No, Mrs Butcher isn't here, she's away on business.

0:08:320:08:35

I haven't spoken to her today, no.

0:08:370:08:39

Well, why don't you ring your boss and then give me a ring back, yeah?

0:08:410:08:45

This... This is not how you run a business, Tamwar.

0:09:030:09:06

I'm just a bit behind, that's all.

0:09:060:09:08

A bit? Let's see - when was the last time you filed anything properly?

0:09:080:09:12

Huh? Would it be...

0:09:120:09:15

Yeah - July!

0:09:150:09:17

-Afia had a system. I've got to work out my own.

-When? Christmas?

0:09:170:09:20

I told you I don't want to do this any more...

0:09:200:09:23

Why don't we go to the cafe and let Tamwar sort this out?

0:09:230:09:25

If you want to go to university then we need to save for it.

0:09:250:09:28

And while we are saving for it, you need to be on top of the business.

0:09:280:09:31

I'll fix it. Just don't go on about it.

0:09:310:09:34

A nice, soothing herbal tea, that's what you need. Come on.

0:09:340:09:38

And don't think I won't be checking up on you.

0:09:400:09:43

-So when was this?

-Last night.

0:09:490:09:51

Jean reckons they've gone on some second honeymoon or something.

0:09:510:09:54

-It's a bit sudden, ain't it?

-What, they didn't say where?

0:09:540:09:57

Nah, man.

0:09:570:09:58

Yes but you're not running the pub, Mo Harris. I am.

0:10:040:10:08

Alfie's message was perfectly clear.

0:10:080:10:11

You know, I haven't just resigned from the flower stall and done all this for nothing.

0:10:110:10:14

I'll go back to Fat Elvis, then shall I?

0:10:150:10:18

If I weren't here you'd still be spinning on the spot in your pyjamas.

0:10:180:10:22

I told you, I am serving, you're helping Ray in the kitchen. Now go.

0:10:220:10:28

The power's gone to your head, Jean.

0:10:280:10:30

-All right, mate.

-Hello, guys.

0:10:330:10:34

-I'll have a pint, please, and...?

-A half.

0:10:340:10:37

-I'll just have a lemonade please.

-All right, no worries.

0:10:370:10:40

-I haven't got any cash, have you?

-Fats, it's on the house, ain't it?

0:10:400:10:45

-Is it? Oh, thanks, Fatboy.

-Nice one, mate, cheers.

0:10:450:10:47

-Er...

-Love you!

0:10:470:10:48

Mine's a vodka and tonic.

0:10:510:10:53

If Kat can go swanning off on some romantic getaway, I deserve a bit of fun too.

0:10:530:10:57

Be sitting there.

0:10:570:10:59

Sorry, Jack. I'm going to have to shoot.

0:11:100:11:12

-Aren't we going through the paperwork?

-Later.

0:11:120:11:14

Max, come on...

0:11:140:11:15

I just wish he'd follow your example, you know?

0:11:300:11:32

Take business seriously. Make a go of things. Make them successful.

0:11:320:11:35

You heard the rumour? Apparently Janine's disappeared.

0:11:400:11:44

-What?

-There's no rumour. You're only just starting it.

0:11:440:11:47

You're the one who said that she wasn't even there to sign for the parcel.

0:11:470:11:50

-And Billy was acting all suspicious.

-Evasive, I said - evasive.

0:11:500:11:53

I said at the wedding they would not last past Christmas.

0:11:530:11:56

And why leave the baby with that man?

0:11:570:12:00

I mean, you might as well leave a baby with Darth Vader.

0:12:000:12:03

All right? You got the paperwork for the flat then, yeah?

0:12:030:12:07

Erm, it's at home. I didn't know if you and Janine still wanted it.

0:12:070:12:10

Yeah, yeah we do. We do. That was just a blip.

0:12:100:12:12

-I want to finalise it today, yeah?

-OK.

0:12:120:12:15

-Well, I can meet you at the house in a few hours.

-Yeah. Yeah.

0:12:150:12:18

Two?

0:12:180:12:20

Good.

0:12:200:12:21

God, his eyes give me the creeps. I bet baby Scarlett cries every time that leans over the cot.

0:12:270:12:32

I've got to go.

0:12:320:12:34

Look, we can't keep avoiding each other, this is mental.

0:12:450:12:47

-It's not mental, it's sensible.

-But I don't do sensible.

0:12:470:12:52

I'm doing you a favour.

0:12:540:12:56

Hey, hey, hey! No more freeness, man!

0:13:010:13:03

You can talk! I've seen you sneaking drinks over to your mates.

0:13:030:13:07

This is for the bloke round the corner.

0:13:070:13:09

Oi, Mo. I need some help in the kitchen, man.

0:13:090:13:12

-I told you to help Ray.

-I can't be everything to everyone, Jean.

0:13:120:13:16

All right. No problem.

0:13:180:13:19

Yeah. I'll see you around, yeah?

0:13:190:13:22

Why are French and Saunders behind the bar?

0:13:230:13:26

Kat and Alfie have gone away. Holiday or something.

0:13:260:13:30

Alfie didn't say anything about that last night.

0:13:300:13:32

Hello, Michael.

0:13:350:13:36

-Michael...

-All right?

-I just heard about Janine going.

0:13:410:13:45

Sorry, I didn't realise...

0:13:450:13:47

If you need a hand with Scarlett, me and Christian can help.

0:13:470:13:49

-Janine's gone?

-No, she's not gone.

0:13:490:13:51

She's just gone down south for a few days.

0:13:510:13:53

I bet that's one of them euphemisms, innit?

0:13:530:13:55

Where you got her buried, Michael? Under the gym?

0:13:550:13:58

Very droll, Derek. Well done.

0:13:580:14:00

Thought it sounded a bit drastic. Let me get you one.

0:14:000:14:05

Er... Look, I know you weren't too keen

0:14:050:14:09

but Janine agreed to buy those cleaning products.

0:14:090:14:12

-She shook on thirteen K.

-Did she now?

0:14:120:14:16

Yeah. They're ready for you, at my lock-up.

0:14:160:14:20

And, the thing is, I said I'd pay the supplier today.

0:14:200:14:24

-OK. I'll write a cheque, I'll bring it over later.

-Thank you.

0:14:240:14:29

That's great. Well, catch you later then, yeah?

0:14:290:14:33

I didn't have time to get that special cream but Michael's got loads of it, look.

0:14:360:14:40

You won't let me see Jay but you don't mind me using nicked bum cream?

0:14:400:14:43

It's not nicked, it's borrowed. Get her on the changing table.

0:14:430:14:47

So why are you looking after Scarlett, anyway?

0:14:480:14:50

Because Michael's useless and Janine's done a runner.

0:14:500:14:53

-What, she just left the baby?

-Yep.

0:14:530:14:54

-But you don't do that if you're a mum, you don't just leave your baby.

-Janine does.

0:14:540:14:59

Poor little thing. Where is she?

0:14:590:15:01

Asleep upstairs.

0:15:010:15:03

I saw Jay earlier. He wouldn't even talk to me.

0:15:040:15:07

Well, that's good.

0:15:070:15:09

How is that good? The social worker could already see I was miserable.

0:15:090:15:12

-This new one's going to think I ain't coping.

-But we are coping, Lo.

0:15:120:15:16

But Jay staying away ain't helping anyone, is it? Especially me.

0:15:160:15:20

This is last week's takings.

0:15:280:15:30

-Oh!

-£206?

0:15:300:15:33

Minus £206.

0:15:330:15:35

-Did you count these?

-I counted everything.

0:15:380:15:40

How is this possible? After everything we've put into this place, how is this possible?

0:15:430:15:47

He had a slow week, that's all.

0:15:470:15:48

It would help if you took the business seriously. Like your brother.

0:15:500:15:53

What's Syed got to do with this?

0:15:530:15:55

Do you not want the Argee Bhajee to be a success?

0:15:550:15:57

-Think about everything we've put into this place.

-I will fix it.

0:15:570:16:01

-We need to have a family meeting,

-Mum, Mum, I said I'll fix it.

0:16:010:16:03

Get off my back.

0:16:030:16:05

Is it hot in here or what? I'm boiling.

0:16:160:16:18

-Is it true? About Janine?

-Nah.

0:16:210:16:23

She's got a business. And a baby. And me.

0:16:230:16:25

-How is Scarlett?

-She's fine.

0:16:260:16:29

-Where is she now?

-I said she's fine.

0:16:290:16:31

I knew this would happen. One of you had to destroy the other.

0:16:310:16:35

-One of you had to win.

-She ain't won nothing.

0:16:350:16:39

We're a partnership.

0:16:390:16:41

And you're both going to look out for each other, right?

0:16:490:16:51

And no arguing and definitely no nicking each other's boyfriends.

0:16:510:16:55

-Yeah?

-DOOR CLOSING

0:16:550:16:56

Pops, you said you'd be five minutes. If Michael'd walked in he would have killed me. Yeah!

0:16:580:17:02

-What are you doing here?

-Billy thinks we should have a chat.

0:17:040:17:07

Er - you didn't ring those up.

0:17:140:17:17

-Sorry, what?

-On the till. You didn't put them through.

0:17:170:17:19

Yes, I did. You're stressed Jean, sit down.

0:17:190:17:23

-Has she been handing out free drinks?

-Um...

0:17:240:17:27

You have. Mo Harris, how dare you!

0:17:270:17:30

I'm not the only one. That lot have had at least two rounds.

0:17:300:17:33

This stops right now.

0:17:350:17:37

Right.

0:17:390:17:41

Just a bit of an announcement, please, everybody. Thank you.

0:17:430:17:47

Just to say, the Queen Vic is not a charity.

0:17:470:17:52

If any of our staff have mistakenly served you without charge today,

0:17:520:17:56

then you have to leave before you pay...

0:17:560:17:59

I mean, pay before you leave the premises.

0:17:590:18:02

And if you don't pay before you leave the premises...

0:18:030:18:06

um, then you're barred.

0:18:060:18:08

-Barred?

-Yes. So pay up or...

0:18:080:18:12

Erm... Get out of my pub!

0:18:120:18:14

No, I mean it.

0:18:170:18:19

Nice one, Mo.

0:18:210:18:22

If the Social see me hanging around and realise who I am then...

0:18:270:18:31

Well, yeah, we'll be careful, won't we?

0:18:310:18:33

I'm not going to beg but things would be a lot better if you were around.

0:18:330:18:36

-You've got Billy, ain't you?

-And we all know what he's like in a crisis, don't we, eh?

0:18:360:18:41

Why are you staring at me like that?

0:18:450:18:48

-Like what?

-All... soft.

0:18:480:18:50

For the first few days you couldn't even hold her. Look at you now. All mumsy.

0:18:520:18:57

Well, I ain't got a choice, have I?

0:18:570:19:01

-She's lucky to have you, you know.

-Yeah. Britain's Best Mum.

0:19:010:19:04

Sitting in someone else's house, on tag, using nicked bum cream.

0:19:040:19:07

-Let me put her dummy in?

-Now who's all mumsy, eh?

0:19:100:19:14

Shut up.

0:19:140:19:16

Dum-dum?

0:19:170:19:19

Ahhh...!

0:19:200:19:22

Come on, Jay. You know you miss us. Eh?

0:19:250:19:28

And you're not going to survive the next few months without mates.

0:19:280:19:31

So is it true what they're saying? About Janine?

0:19:350:19:40

No. It's gossip.

0:19:410:19:44

She'll be back. Butcher's Joints'll be booming. You'll see.

0:19:460:19:53

Very good. Right.

0:19:530:19:55

Yeah. So, I'll get my solicitor to sign the bank transfer

0:19:560:20:00

and do the completion papers.

0:20:000:20:02

-He'll ring you this afternoon, yeah? To confirm.

-Mm-hm.

0:20:020:20:06

Shall we shake? All right then.

0:20:070:20:09

Job done.

0:20:090:20:10

Yes. all right, Poppy. Don't worry about it. I won't be long. OK. Bye. Bye.

0:20:100:20:16

How'd you get on with the dress?

0:20:160:20:18

-Oh, yes. You can pick it up Monday. And it cost sixty quid.

-Sixty?

0:20:180:20:22

You get a nice box with it, don't you?

0:20:220:20:25

-DOOR OPENING

-Oh, well, that's all right then.

-Babe, you in?

0:20:250:20:29

Hello, darling. We're in here.

0:20:290:20:31

You all right?

0:20:350:20:37

-What's that?

-For you.

0:20:370:20:40

It's a calendar.

0:20:450:20:47

-Yep.

-It's a calendar with cats on.

0:20:470:20:50

Yeah, sorry it's a bit battered.

0:20:500:20:53

It was the last one in the shop. Been in there all year.

0:20:530:20:56

Why are you buying me a calendar?

0:20:560:20:57

Christmas eve? What about it?

0:21:070:21:09

It's a good day for a wedding.

0:21:090:21:11

SHE GASPS

0:21:110:21:12

-That's a turn-up for the books.

-You know me, Cora. Full of surprises.

0:21:160:21:21

-Michael, hi. Come in.

-Cheers.

0:21:260:21:29

Listen, thank you so much for sorting all this out.

0:21:310:21:34

You know, when I heard about Janine going...

0:21:340:21:38

-Well, you know...

-Yeah.

0:21:380:21:41

So... do you have the cheque?

0:21:430:21:45

Yeah. Yeah.

0:21:450:21:48

Oh, right, yeah.

0:21:500:21:52

That's for you.

0:22:010:22:03

You think I'd do a deal with a no-mark like you,

0:22:040:22:07

somebody who makes deals behind my back?

0:22:070:22:10

Blabs about my private business?

0:22:100:22:12

Listen, I'm sorry about that. It's just, when...

0:22:120:22:14

-When I found out about Janine going, I didn't know what to think.

-Yeah, yeah. You're an idiot.

0:22:140:22:18

Michael, you can't go back on the deal.

0:22:210:22:23

Janine shook on it.

0:22:230:22:24

You're not quite cut out for this entrepreneurial stuff, are you?

0:22:240:22:28

-What?

-All this tatty tourist gear knocking about

0:22:280:22:31

and a cheap shed-load of bleach. Dodgy cleaning products.

0:22:310:22:34

It's hardly the start of an empire, Syed.

0:22:340:22:36

That's the difference between me and you.

0:22:390:22:41

Cos while you were sitting around, waiting, doing nish, I was out making moves.

0:22:410:22:48

I bought a flat, just like that.

0:22:480:22:50

But you? You're like a desperate little puppy dog.

0:22:500:22:55

And desperation stinks.

0:22:550:22:57

Michael, I need that money, I told the suppliers I'd pay them today.

0:22:570:23:02

We had a deal! I had a deal.

0:23:020:23:05

Not with me you didn't.

0:23:050:23:08

Excuse me.

0:23:080:23:10

-Why do I have to do it?

-Because. You've got them big sad eyes, ain't you?

0:23:170:23:23

-Fatboy?

-Mmm? Yes, darling?

0:23:230:23:27

We don't have enough cash.

0:23:270:23:29

So I was wondering, could we pay you half now, and then half later?

0:23:290:23:33

You don't have to do that, sweetheart.

0:23:330:23:35

-But we don't have enough cash.

-It's been sorted. Your dad paid.

0:23:350:23:38

Cheers, Uncle Derek.

0:23:380:23:40

He's really thoughtful sometimes.

0:23:430:23:45

Yeah. He ain't got no-one else to spoil, has he?

0:23:450:23:48

TV PLAYS, DOOR OPENS

0:23:520:23:55

-All right?

-Where's Scarlett?

0:23:570:23:59

I got the magic touch, ain't I?

0:24:010:24:04

Any word from Janine? It ain't like her to disappear.

0:24:040:24:08

She ain't answering her phone, either.

0:24:080:24:10

Scare tactics, Bill. Don't be duped by it.

0:24:120:24:16

-Better head down to the office, yeah? Man those phones.

-Of course.

0:24:170:24:21

-Cheers for this.

-No worries.

0:24:210:24:23

She'll be back.

0:24:320:24:34

There must be something we can do. I mean, you can take it back, right?

0:24:370:24:41

Look, I'll even slip you fifty for the hassle.

0:24:410:24:43

It ain't going back. Where do you think it came from at this price?

0:24:430:24:47

But I can't afford to pay you.

0:24:470:24:50

You've got till Friday.

0:24:510:24:53

Just give me... Yeah, just let me know.

0:24:590:25:01

Let me know what your thoughts are. Cheers.

0:25:010:25:04

KNOCKING AT THE DOOR

0:25:040:25:06

Sorry, I tried calling.

0:25:130:25:15

I've been sourcing more properties. What's up?

0:25:150:25:17

It's past half five and you said your solicitor would be in touch.

0:25:170:25:21

-He's not called?

-No. I just want to make sure there's not a problem.

0:25:210:25:26

Yeah. Come in. Go through. I'll give him a ring now.

0:25:260:25:29

-Michael Moon?

-No. Billy. Billy Mitchell.

0:25:390:25:43

You're an employee of Butcher's Joints?

0:25:430:25:46

I'm Executive Director Of Operations. Why? Who's asking?

0:25:460:25:50

No, I'm not in the office.

0:25:570:25:58

I'm not in front of a computer, so just tell me, please.

0:25:580:26:01

-Is everything OK?

-Yeah, yeah fine.

0:26:010:26:03

-SCARLETT CRIES

-Just... Can you give her a cuddle?

0:26:030:26:07

-Me?

-Yeah. Brilliant. Two seconds.

0:26:070:26:09

Yeah?

0:26:090:26:10

What was that?

0:26:110:26:13

Oh. OK. How much? How much has she transferred?

0:26:150:26:18

What's left?

0:26:220:26:25

Right, you've got to freeze everything! Now, please.

0:26:250:26:30

-Just everything.

-BANGING AT THE DOOR

0:26:300:26:32

Michael, Michael, come to the office.

0:26:340:26:36

No, of course, it wasn't me! Don't be stupid.

0:26:360:26:38

-Michael, you've got to come!

-Billy, shut up!

0:26:380:26:40

-Which accounts?

-She's upset, she wants her dad.

0:26:400:26:43

-She's upset.

-Michael, you need to read this! Michael!

0:26:430:26:48

There he is. There's Daddy.

0:26:590:27:01

-Hey.

-Tell you what, once we get this little one to bed,

0:27:010:27:04

me and you are going to celebrate.

0:27:040:27:06

Your deal!

0:27:080:27:09

It might cut into your three grand profit but I didn't think you'd mind.

0:27:090:27:12

I'll cook us something special. Make a night of it.

0:27:120:27:15

-There's no need to make a fuss.

-I want to.

0:27:150:27:18

We want to. Cos we're proud of you.

0:27:180:27:20

-Hey! Watch where you're going.

-Get out of my way.

0:27:200:27:23

Hey! Oi, you. You can't do this.

0:27:240:27:27

Michael. I tried to stop them. But they got this letter from Janine.

0:27:270:27:30

What are we going to do?

0:27:330:27:35

She can't do this to me.

0:27:350:27:37

Nobody does THIS to me.

0:27:370:27:43

Who is it?

0:27:430:27:46

Hey!

0:27:460:27:47

Pops!

0:27:470:27:48

Oh, Lo!

0:27:480:27:50

Pops, pass us the nappies.

0:27:550:27:56

Oh... Watch Lexi, I'll go get more.

0:27:590:28:02

Hello!

0:28:020:28:03

Lo, you can't leave her like this. She'll catch her death.

0:28:030:28:06

I won't be long.

0:28:060:28:07

And then...

0:28:280:28:29

we're done! Let's have a look at you.

0:28:290:28:33

Oh, look at you. That's lovely, isn't it?

0:28:350:28:38

DOORBELL RINGS

0:28:380:28:39

Come here. Come here. What's your mum forgot now, eh?

0:28:390:28:43

Shall we go and see? Let's go and see what she's forgotten.

0:28:430:28:47

Come on then. There we are.

0:28:470:28:49

Mr Mitchell?

0:28:530:28:54

I'm Trish Barnes, Lexi's new social worker.

0:28:540:28:57

-Oh, right.

-And this must be little Lexi?

-Yes.

0:28:570:28:59

I've done this for you.

0:29:140:29:15

It is a checklist,

0:29:150:29:17

to help you keep on top of everything at the restaurant.

0:29:170:29:20

After yesterday I think it's important, don't you?

0:29:220:29:25

So you've mentioned, several times.

0:29:250:29:27

I don't mean to nag, Tamwar...

0:29:270:29:29

You're succeeding anyway.

0:29:290:29:31

Right, that's me off to the gym.

0:29:310:29:33

-Thanks for looking after Yas for me.

-My pleasure.

0:29:330:29:35

-Did Sy tell you about the deal he closed?

-What?

-See ya.

0:29:350:29:38

You see! Your brother...

0:29:380:29:40

Oh. Comparisons to my more successful older brother,

0:29:400:29:43

that's bound to be great motivation.

0:29:430:29:46

I'm just saying he's got drive, he's got get up and go.

0:29:460:29:49

Where are you going?

0:29:490:29:50

Getting up and going.

0:29:500:29:51

She'll be back soon.

0:30:160:30:19

She just popped out to get some... some nappies.

0:30:190:30:22

Sorry I took so long, I met Jay.

0:30:270:30:30

Hi, Lola. I'm Lexi's new Social Worker.

0:30:300:30:32

And you're Jay...?

0:30:320:30:34

Er... Brown.

0:30:360:30:37

-I believe you've been attending the mother and baby group?

-Yeah.

0:30:400:30:46

-Have you found it helpful?

-Oh, yeah. She loves it.

0:30:460:30:48

-Don't you, Lo?

-Yeah, it's all right.

0:30:480:30:51

OK.

0:30:510:30:52

Why don't we put Lexi in a proper nappy,

0:30:520:30:54

and then I'll have look at her.

0:30:540:30:56

OK.

0:30:560:30:58

I hope that's a clean towel.

0:31:000:31:02

(What was I supposed to do?)

0:31:020:31:04

You know how important stable employment is, in Lola's situation?

0:31:110:31:16

Very?

0:31:160:31:17

Exactly.

0:31:170:31:19

So, I was concerned to see the Butcher's Joints office

0:31:190:31:21

boarded up this morning.

0:31:210:31:23

Oh, no, no. That's just the property company.

0:31:230:31:26

The cleaning business is doing really well.

0:31:260:31:28

Well, people always need cleaners, don't they?

0:31:300:31:33

They certainly do.

0:31:330:31:35

Morning.

0:31:420:31:43

Can you believe this?

0:31:430:31:44

She's signed over all the properties to a management agency.

0:31:440:31:48

How about this? Listen.

0:31:480:31:50

"Miss Butcher has requested that you desist

0:31:500:31:51

"from any dealings on her behalf, or claims to represent her interest in any way".

0:31:510:31:55

Desist? I should desist? I'm the one that should desist?

0:31:550:31:57

She should desist.

0:31:570:31:58

Listen. She can't just have vanished, all right.

0:31:580:32:01

You must be able to get hold of her somehow.

0:32:010:32:03

I've tried, Jack. I've tried.

0:32:030:32:05

Sorry, I've got to do this, cos it calms her down.

0:32:050:32:07

That's it, darling.

0:32:070:32:09

How did this happen? How did we get here, Jack?

0:32:090:32:12

Made a pig's ear out of everything.

0:32:120:32:14

Yeah, well speak for yourself, mate.

0:32:140:32:16

No, no, I'm speaking for us, Jack, I'm speaking for me and you.

0:32:160:32:18

Two lonely, old, poor deluded fools. Failures.

0:32:180:32:22

Oi, my life is fine, thank you.

0:32:220:32:24

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-You're having a laugh, aren't you? Two failed marriages,

0:32:240:32:27

-you've got a wife in prison....

-That's why she's called my ex-wife.

0:32:270:32:30

You've got loads of kids everywhere, you hardly ever see any of them.

0:32:300:32:33

-It's hardly The Waltons.

-Yeah well, when you put it like that,

0:32:330:32:35

course it's going to sound bad, isn't it?

0:32:350:32:37

When was the last time you had a relationship? Go on?

0:32:370:32:40

I do all right, don't I?

0:32:400:32:41

I know with one night stands you've got a big strike rate.

0:32:410:32:43

Fair play. But I'm talking about the other stuff, yeah?

0:32:430:32:46

Like a bird whose surname you know.

0:32:460:32:49

What's that got to do with anything?

0:32:490:32:51

That's got everything to do with it, Jack. Everything to do with it.

0:32:510:32:53

It's about living off takeaway food, and one-night stands, it's...

0:32:530:32:58

There's got to be more to life than this, Jack.

0:32:580:33:00

Look at the bag, Jack. You work it out. Snap.

0:33:000:33:04

What did you tell her your real name for?

0:33:140:33:16

Well, she asked me. What could I do?

0:33:160:33:18

Lie. Cos now it's on Lola's file, that she's hanging about with you

0:33:180:33:21

while you're on bail.

0:33:210:33:22

Hang on, how could they even know about the case?

0:33:220:33:24

His name hasn't been in no paper.

0:33:240:33:25

Oh, what, you don't think old bill and Social Services

0:33:250:33:28

are in each other's ears, swapping stories?

0:33:280:33:30

Yesterday you're all, "Oh, everything's all right, Jay,"

0:33:300:33:32

"come on over." Make your mind up.

0:33:320:33:34

I just don't think it's very clever telling them your real name.

0:33:340:33:37

And lying about us having jobs was, yeah?

0:33:370:33:39

I told you, I'm sorting that out.

0:33:390:33:41

And how you going to do that exactly? Hmm?

0:33:410:33:45

Now, what about that?

0:33:460:33:48

No, I'll pass on that, thanks.

0:33:480:33:50

See, that's your trouble, Jack,

0:33:500:33:52

you never recognise class when you see it.

0:33:520:33:54

All right, I didn't think this sort of tat was your game.

0:33:540:33:57

Quality always sells. I've done most of it already.

0:33:570:34:00

-Yeah and what about the rest of it?

-I'll think of something.

0:34:000:34:03

Here, what about Joey? He's got a face for sales.

0:34:040:34:08

Yeah, I can't see him using it for my benefit though.

0:34:080:34:10

Oh, right. So, you're just going to give up on him, are you?

0:34:100:34:13

Come on, we've all made mistakes,

0:34:130:34:14

it's about putting them right, isn't it?

0:34:140:34:16

Look, we're too alike, me and him. It isn't going to work.

0:34:160:34:19

If you're that alike, you should know what buttons to press then,

0:34:190:34:21

shouldn't you?

0:34:210:34:23

This is new.

0:34:260:34:28

Yeah, it's just temporary.

0:34:280:34:30

Christian said you'd sold everything in some big deal.

0:34:300:34:32

I got some more.

0:34:340:34:35

I figured I might be able to make some extra selling it here.

0:34:350:34:38

-I wish Tamwar had your business sense.

-Tamwar's fine.

0:34:380:34:41

No, he's too laid-back.

0:34:410:34:42

He lets everything get on top of him. Especially since Afia left.

0:34:420:34:46

Listen, he's been struggling with the restaurant, OK?

0:34:460:34:49

He needs a hand, Syed, someone that he can trust...

0:34:490:34:52

Just give me a minute.

0:34:520:34:54

Look, Mum, I can't talk right now, OK. Just...

0:34:550:34:58

I've got to work.

0:34:580:35:00

OK. Sorry.

0:35:000:35:01

Oi. If I hear the word "wedding" one more time, I swear I will...

0:35:070:35:12

I think it's romantic, you know, Max and Tanya all loved up.

0:35:120:35:14

-HE HUMS ENDLESS LOVE

-All right, Fats.

0:35:140:35:19

Seriously. Shut up! Fats!

0:35:190:35:21

For you.

0:35:250:35:26

A key?

0:35:260:35:28

See, sharp as a tack, this one.

0:35:280:35:29

Yeah, but the question is, a key to where? Go on, ask me.

0:35:290:35:33

To the Emporium.

0:35:340:35:36

Where you and I will soon be setting up business together.

0:35:360:35:39

Hold tight. Don't Anthony and Tyler own it?

0:35:390:35:41

-Not any more they don't.

-So, what, they sold it to you?

0:35:410:35:43

No. They didn't sell it to me. I won it.

0:35:430:35:45

Four of spades.

0:35:450:35:47

Wait, Anthony gambled the Emporium?

0:35:470:35:49

-Yeah, I know, silly boy.

-Does Tyler know about this?

0:35:490:35:52

-You'll have to ask him that, won't you?

-He's going to be gutted.

0:35:520:35:54

Now, you think about what kind of business you fancy, all right?

0:35:540:35:58

First of all there's some gear in there that needs to be cleared out.

0:35:580:36:01

Got me?

0:36:010:36:03

Erm... I'll be back in two minutes, yeah?

0:36:050:36:07

What are you going to do, then?

0:36:120:36:14

Anthony. Where you at, man?

0:36:170:36:20

You need to give me a call when you get this, yeah?

0:36:200:36:23

Michael. Michael, about Butcher's Joints...

0:36:260:36:29

There is no Butcher's Joints, Bill. It's over. It's finished, closed.

0:36:290:36:32

-What about all the properties?

-Handed over to a management company or something.

0:36:320:36:35

-Can we stop and talk about this?

-No, we have to keep moving.

0:36:350:36:38

-Why do we have to keep moving?

-Laps of the Square. The baby likes laps of the Square.

0:36:380:36:42

-But what about the cleaning business?

-No idea.

0:36:420:36:44

You know what a good little earner that is, be a shame to let it go.

0:36:440:36:47

And all the hard work's done, isn't it? Customers are already there.

0:36:470:36:50

I could ask them, see if they want to stay with us.

0:36:500:36:52

No. Tell them we're under new management, but it's business as usual.

0:36:520:36:57

See what they say.

0:36:570:36:58

And what about the cleaners? Are we keeping them on?

0:36:580:37:00

I don't know, I don't know. You want to manage it, you manage it.

0:37:000:37:04

"Manager".

0:37:040:37:06

"Managing Director". Yeah.

0:37:080:37:11

HE KNOCKS

0:37:170:37:18

Starting early, even for you, Jack.

0:37:180:37:20

Yeah, well don't worry, I've got a strict no alcohol before midday rule.

0:37:200:37:23

That is impressive.

0:37:230:37:24

Yeah, I'm all about restraint, me.

0:37:240:37:26

So I've seen. So if you're not here for a drink...?

0:37:260:37:30

Well, I was just seeing if you're free tonight.

0:37:300:37:32

-That depends what's on offer?

-Dinner. I'll cook.

0:37:320:37:35

Sounds like you're trying to lure me back to your place again.

0:37:350:37:37

-Is it working?

-I can't see you in the kitchen.

0:37:370:37:40

Had you down more as a bedroom man.

0:37:400:37:42

See, don't knock what's on offer, until you've tasted it.

0:37:420:37:45

I take it we're still talking about the food?

0:37:450:37:48

-Is that a yes, then?

-Dinner at your place does sound lovely.

0:37:480:37:51

-Great.

-But I've got Denny. So I'll have to take a rain check.

0:37:510:37:54

Sorry.

0:37:540:37:55

They called and said Janice was closing down,

0:37:570:38:00

and that she gave them our details.

0:38:000:38:02

-We're not closing down.

-I haven't seen Janice.

0:38:020:38:04

Me and Michael are running it now.

0:38:040:38:06

Well, this new lot, they're cheaper.

0:38:060:38:08

OK. I'll drop your rate by 20%.

0:38:080:38:11

A lot cheaper.

0:38:110:38:12

I'll give you a free extra hour every week.

0:38:120:38:15

And they work hard.

0:38:150:38:17

You know, I've been following them from room to room

0:38:170:38:20

and they haven't stopped going.

0:38:200:38:22

They sweat. Such hard workers.

0:38:220:38:25

SHE SQUEALS

0:38:260:38:30

You can take off your top if it's too hot, yeah?

0:38:300:38:32

"Such hard workers."

0:38:370:38:39

No offence, Billy, but he can reach parts that you just can't.

0:38:390:38:42

He hasn't said anything about Janine's other customers, has he?

0:38:420:38:47

No. But if Mr Buff is calling round them as well

0:38:470:38:49

you've got problems, mate.

0:38:490:38:51

Excuse me.

0:38:520:38:54

Coo-ee!

0:38:540:38:56

Maybe they just up and left?

0:39:150:39:17

No way, man. They wouldn't do that. Not without saying anything, anyway.

0:39:170:39:21

No, no, no, they wouldn't do that.

0:39:210:39:23

-Well, are they together?

-I don't know.

0:39:230:39:25

Maybe they're just never coming back then.

0:39:280:39:30

What's Tyler got to keep him here anyway?

0:39:300:39:32

Whitney!

0:39:320:39:34

Yes, because boys never run off and leave their girlfriends behind.

0:39:340:39:37

I tell you what, all right, let's phone Whitney, shall we, OK,

0:39:370:39:40

cos she will definitely know the story.

0:39:400:39:42

Yeah, OK, Fats, what if she doesn't?

0:39:420:39:44

Isn't she in Suffolk with Carol and the kids?

0:39:440:39:46

You're just going to unload all of this on her?

0:39:460:39:48

-No.

-Exactly. Come on.

0:39:510:39:54

What do you think?

0:40:030:40:05

Yeah, yeah, it's all right, when you get rid of all the rubbish.

0:40:050:40:09

First thing we need to do is we need to christen this place, eh?

0:40:090:40:12

What, with, like, a party?

0:40:120:40:15

Why not? A bit of music and a bit of beer.

0:40:150:40:18

I reckon it'll be perfect round here.

0:40:180:40:19

-PHONE BEEPS

-Yeah. OK. Fats, what do you reckon, a party?

0:40:190:40:24

You can DJ.

0:40:240:40:25

ENGAGED TONE

0:40:270:40:29

Hey, you don't fancy lunch, do you?

0:40:330:40:36

Now, I thought you said you'd be too busy making money to lunch.

0:40:360:40:39

Well, all work and no play.

0:40:400:40:41

Now you're speaking my language. Where do you fancy?

0:40:410:40:45

I thought we could eat here.

0:40:450:40:47

-In the gym?

-I've been out in the noise and hassle all day.

0:40:470:40:50

It'd be nice to just get away somewhere quiet.

0:40:500:40:52

I think we can do a bit better than this.

0:40:520:40:54

Well, I'll only have to lug this stuff with me.

0:40:540:40:57

Let's just stay here.

0:40:570:40:59

All right. You go and get some food. and I'll get showered.

0:40:590:41:03

Can't you get it? I've been on my feet all morning.

0:41:030:41:06

OK.

0:41:070:41:08

No, no, Mrs Holden, that is a mistake.

0:41:110:41:14

We have definitely not closed down. We're absolutely still going....

0:41:140:41:18

Look, before you decide, OK,

0:41:190:41:21

maybe you'd like to hear about reduced prices...

0:41:210:41:24

Thank you, Tracey.

0:41:340:41:36

No, no. Come on, let me get that.

0:41:360:41:38

The answer's no.

0:41:390:41:40

You haven't even heard what I've got to say yet.

0:41:420:41:44

Come on, it's only a tiny little favour.

0:41:440:41:46

It would have to be, if you're trying to buy me with the price of a mineral water.

0:41:460:41:49

Trace, throw in a bag of nuts, will you, please.

0:41:490:41:52

-Just a bit of baby-sitting, that's all.

-Oh, yeah,

0:41:520:41:54

-cos I don't spend enough time around kids, do I?

-You do this for me,

0:41:540:41:57

I'll baby-sit for Oscar anytime you and Max want to go out.

0:41:570:42:00

-Don't need it, got Abs for that.

-Oh, come on, please.

0:42:000:42:02

It's just a couple of hours. Please?

0:42:020:42:05

Oh, all right then. But only for Amy, not for you.

0:42:050:42:08

And only because her cousins love spending time with her.

0:42:080:42:10

-Oh, yeah. It's not Amy.

-Who is it then?

0:42:100:42:13

-Er... Dennis Rickman.

-No! No way.

-Why not?

0:42:130:42:17

Because I quite like Sharon, you know,

0:42:170:42:19

and this will end in tears, won't it?

0:42:190:42:21

-Yeah? Says who?

-Says your track record, that's who.

0:42:210:42:26

Why don't we stop worrying about Sharon Rickman

0:42:260:42:28

and start thinking about me?

0:42:280:42:30

Lonely single father, yeah? Seeking meaningful relationship.

0:42:300:42:34

Good sense of humour. Sensitive.

0:42:350:42:38

Oh, now you see, you had me. You had me till you said "sensitive".

0:42:380:42:42

I wouldn't ask you if it wasn't important.

0:42:420:42:44

I've got a confession to make.

0:42:480:42:50

What, you won the lottery and didn't tell me?

0:42:500:42:52

I wish.

0:42:520:42:55

I didn't just want to meet you for lunch.

0:42:550:42:56

I wanted to talk to you about something.

0:42:560:42:59

Go on.

0:42:590:43:00

I thought we could set a date for the wedding.

0:43:030:43:05

Maybe...autumn.

0:43:050:43:07

And you know why I prefer autumn to spring?

0:43:090:43:13

It's sooner.

0:43:130:43:14

Sy, your face, you'd think I'd asked you for a kidney.

0:43:160:43:19

-How much is this going to cost?

-I thought we agreed,

0:43:190:43:21

-the money you made yesterday would cover it.

-I don't know what the rush is.

0:43:210:43:25

Rush? We've been talking about this for 18 months.

0:43:250:43:29

I'm not asking you to elope, just...

0:43:300:43:33

set a date.

0:43:330:43:34

And then there's Mum. We've only just got her on side.

0:43:340:43:38

I don't want to push it now.

0:43:380:43:39

We live next door to your mum, with her grandchild,

0:43:390:43:42

I hardly think us marrying is going to faze her at all.

0:43:420:43:45

I want to take things slowly, for her sake. OK?

0:43:450:43:49

OK.

0:43:510:43:53

You see the thing is, when you're in business, like I am,

0:43:540:43:58

well, sometimes you have to make difficult decisions.

0:43:580:44:01

And this is really difficult for me right now.

0:44:010:44:04

But, you see, the thing is, there isn't enough work to go around...

0:44:040:44:07

The moment it picks up, you'll be the first people I'll call...

0:44:070:44:11

You've got my word on that, I promise you.

0:44:110:44:13

Billy!

0:44:130:44:14

I've been thinking, we local businesses should stick together, yeah?

0:44:160:44:19

-You can have back your cleaning contract.

-What happened to your old workers then?

0:44:190:44:23

Well, how was I supposed to know they had a "look and no touch" policy?

0:44:230:44:26

OK. I wasn't expecting a grand parade,

0:44:280:44:30

but a little bit of positivity would be nice.

0:44:300:44:32

We've lost all our other customers as well.

0:44:320:44:34

So? Go get them back. Fight for your business.

0:44:340:44:37

Listen, "Don't give up, keep on trying,

0:44:370:44:40

"You're going to make it, I ain't lying".

0:44:400:44:42

You know who said that?

0:44:420:44:44

Bruno Mars.

0:44:440:44:45

You don't become a successful businesswoman like myself

0:44:450:44:48

without listening to a little Bruno.

0:44:480:44:50

-Catch you later.

-Yeah, see you.

0:44:500:44:53

OK, that's great. Thanks.

0:44:560:44:57

You're here so often, I'm going to have to get you a loyalty card.

0:45:000:45:03

-Yeah, well, I've solved your problem.

-Didn't know I had one.

0:45:030:45:05

Yeah, I've got a baby-sitter sorted for tonight.

0:45:050:45:08

Tanya is going to look after Dennis.

0:45:080:45:09

Dennis is not a "problem", to be sorted.

0:45:090:45:12

Yeah, well, I didn't mean it like that.

0:45:120:45:14

Come on, I thought you'd be happy. Tanya knows him.

0:45:140:45:16

I decide who minds my son, OK?

0:45:160:45:18

Now, if you don't mind, I've got work to do.

0:45:180:45:20

All right, I'm sorry. I got it wrong.

0:45:320:45:35

Not my place to book a baby-sitter.

0:45:350:45:38

I've still got all this.

0:45:420:45:44

Why don't you just come over early, bring Dennis.

0:45:460:45:49

I'll cook for the three of us.

0:45:490:45:50

Eat up. Go home. No strings.

0:45:500:45:53

OK.

0:45:540:45:55

Kamil?

0:46:020:46:03

Kamil?

0:46:030:46:05

Kamil, this is very, very naughty!

0:46:090:46:11

You come here right now and help me.

0:46:120:46:14

I am very sick and tired of cleaning up after everybody in this family...

0:46:140:46:19

How much is the bleach?

0:46:410:46:42

I take it you have a licence for this stall.

0:46:430:46:46

Can you mind Scarlett for me?

0:46:500:46:51

I can't today, no.

0:46:510:46:53

I have to see my brief, I'll only be a couple of hours. Please?

0:46:530:46:55

Sorry.

0:46:550:46:57

What's that, no takeaway? Who is she?

0:46:570:46:59

She's no-one you'd know.

0:46:590:47:02

Discretion. They like that, don't they? The birds.

0:47:020:47:06

Take my advice.

0:47:060:47:08

Whoever she is - don't marry her.

0:47:080:47:11

What do we even know about this Buff company?

0:47:150:47:17

-I mean, they could be cowboys.

-Very good-looking cowboys.

0:47:170:47:20

Look, I could wear a little T-shirt and tight shorts,

0:47:200:47:22

-if that's what you want, Shar?

-Oh, Billy!

0:47:220:47:24

I'm going to have that image in my head all day now.

0:47:240:47:26

-Come on, you know me.

-Well, that's not really a selling point, is it?

0:47:260:47:29

We've always done a good job for you here. And we're cheaper.

0:47:290:47:32

And I guarantee I will personally clean this place, top to bottom.

0:47:320:47:36

I want to see it sparkle.

0:47:380:47:40

-What, now?

-Yes, now. That's if you want the job?

0:47:400:47:44

Fats, where's your laptop?

0:47:490:47:51

Just doesn't feel right partying here.

0:47:510:47:53

Come on, Fats, it's just a drink and a laugh.

0:47:530:47:56

I know, but it's like dancing on their grave a little bit, innit?

0:47:560:48:00

Fats, if Tyler and Anthony were here,

0:48:000:48:02

they'd be the first ones up for a party.

0:48:020:48:03

But that's exactly my point, all right, they're not here.

0:48:030:48:06

Yes. Yes, because they're probably somewhere sunny, sitting by a pool.

0:48:060:48:10

Right? Yes? Having a laugh at us.

0:48:100:48:13

Sitting with sexy girls in their bikinis.

0:48:150:48:17

Yeah, with cocktails and some music.

0:48:170:48:20

And boom, boom, boom, boom, yeah!

0:48:200:48:24

Yeah! So, laptop, Fats?

0:48:240:48:27

-It's what they'd want, isn't?

-Yes.

0:48:270:48:28

All right then. I'll be back in a minute.

0:48:280:48:30

How much longer?

0:48:330:48:34

Half hour tops.

0:48:340:48:36

I can't wait that long, I have to be somewhere.

0:48:360:48:38

Phil given you the night off, has he?

0:48:380:48:40

I haven't seen him in ages. Anyway, I'm my own boss.

0:48:400:48:43

Well, don't worry. I'll let myself out when I'm finished.

0:48:430:48:46

OK. Oh, and Billy, you've got the contract back.

0:48:460:48:48

Yes!

0:48:480:48:49

Oh, and the stock, it's electronically monitored, OK?

0:48:490:48:52

Yeah, no worries.

PHONE RINGS

0:48:540:48:56

Hello?

0:48:560:48:58

Yes, yes, this is Butcher's cleaners.

0:48:580:49:00

Sure, we could do that. Yeah.

0:49:020:49:04

Could you just give me a sec and I'll get a pen

0:49:040:49:05

and take down your details?

0:49:050:49:07

Yes, go on...

0:49:110:49:12

Nice one.

0:49:130:49:14

Hey, hey, hey, come on, man,

0:49:140:49:16

I don't think Derek is going to like us smashing up his stuff like this.

0:49:160:49:19

Let me worry about him, all right?

0:49:190:49:20

It's your turn.

0:49:210:49:23

Oh, there's none left!

0:49:240:49:26

Go on.

0:49:270:49:28

DOOR BUZZER

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:49:550:49:57

Denny was having such a good time with Ian,

0:49:590:50:01

-I didn't have the heart to drag him away.

-Oh, right. Come in.

0:50:010:50:05

-Hope you're not too disappointed?

-I'll get over it.

0:50:050:50:08

You can take that home to him later if you want.

0:50:110:50:13

You'll be popular.

0:50:130:50:15

Do you want a drink?

0:50:150:50:16

Yeah. Try stopping me.

0:50:160:50:18

This feels like an ambush.

0:50:330:50:35

I found this today.

0:50:350:50:36

I can't believe he's letting things get to this stage. Final demand.

0:50:380:50:42

I told you he needs help at the restaurant.

0:50:420:50:45

Mum, this is dated June, I'm sure he's paid it by now.

0:50:450:50:49

Have you spoken to him?

0:50:490:50:50

No, he won't listen to me, that's why I thought I'd talk to you first.

0:50:500:50:54

Syed, I know this is a big favour to ask you

0:50:560:50:58

but now that you've completed that deal of yours,

0:50:580:51:01

you must have some time.

0:51:010:51:03

Please? You could help out.

0:51:030:51:05

Come on, spread some of that business magic around.

0:51:050:51:08

Look, Mum...

0:51:100:51:12

I've got some other things on too.

0:51:120:51:14

So, you can do them and help out at the restaurant.

0:51:140:51:16

Please, Syed? Your brother needs you.

0:51:160:51:19

Just for a short while.

0:51:230:51:25

Absolutely. Just until the restaurant gets back on its feet.

0:51:250:51:29

Also, Christian tells me

0:51:310:51:35

that you've been thinking of setting a date for the wedding.

0:51:350:51:40

Autumn, right?

0:51:400:51:42

I think it's wonderful.

0:51:430:51:45

Right. Better get started then.

0:51:460:51:49

Finally get Sy to spend some of that cash he's made.

0:51:490:51:52

We should do it right, though, yeah?

0:51:520:51:54

-Have a proper celebration to announce your engagement.

-Yeah.

0:51:540:51:57

We could have a family dinner tomorrow night, at our house.

0:51:570:52:00

But don't say a word to anyone.

0:52:000:52:02

-He lost it in a card game?

-That's what Derek said.

0:52:040:52:07

-Did you not think to ring me?

-Course I did, I only found out today.

0:52:070:52:10

Plus, we thought you was by the beach with some sun and some cocktails...

0:52:100:52:13

-You think this is funny?

-No!

-I've been working every hour

0:52:130:52:15

under the sun with the old man for nothing, my brother's missing

0:52:150:52:18

-and I've lost my business?

-We was worried about you.

0:52:180:52:20

-You looked really worried when I walked in on the party.

-It wasn't a party...

0:52:200:52:24

Fats, thanks for the support.

0:52:240:52:26

-I can't believe you cooked all that yourself.

-Mmm.

0:52:270:52:30

You can check the bin for takeaway cartons, if you don't believe me.

0:52:300:52:33

Already did. And to think I had you down as a one-trick pony.

0:52:330:52:35

-But it's a good trick though, isn't it.

-I didn't say that.

0:52:350:52:38

Well, I haven't had any complaints so far.

0:52:380:52:40

Oh, is that your way of saying I'm one of many?

0:52:400:52:42

Nah, that's not what I said.

0:52:420:52:44

But you haven't exactly been saving yourself for the right woman.

0:52:440:52:47

Yeah, well, there's been a lot of wrong 'uns, if that's what you mean.

0:52:470:52:50

Yeah, one-night stands. Married women...

0:52:500:52:55

I don't need a full disclosure, do I?

0:52:550:52:58

Just saying, don't say I haven't warned you, that's all.

0:52:580:53:00

That sounds ominous...and exciting.

0:53:000:53:03

Let's just...let's just take it slow.

0:53:120:53:14

Not quite the reaction I had last time I was here.

0:53:140:53:17

Yeah well, that was before.

0:53:170:53:19

Before what?

0:53:190:53:20

Before I liked you.

0:53:210:53:23

It'd be good to do it right this time.

0:53:230:53:26

Yeah, it would.

0:53:260:53:27

-Just promise me one thing.

-What's that?

0:53:270:53:30

You don't take it too slowly.

0:53:300:53:32

So, I told the cleaners that Janine had passed on all our customers

0:53:340:53:37

to another company. That's why I had to let them go.

0:53:370:53:41

I explained to them that, you know, in business

0:53:410:53:43

there's going to be casualties.

0:53:430:53:44

The fat has to be trimmed. I think they understood.

0:53:440:53:48

You would've been proud of me, the way I managed it.

0:53:480:53:51

So...the good news, Billy?

0:53:530:53:56

The good news is I have got us three new customers.

0:53:560:54:00

-That many?

-Yeah, yeah. It just shows, don't it?

0:54:010:54:04

We can build this business up.

0:54:040:54:06

Oh. You and me, together?

0:54:060:54:07

Yeah. Yeah, I mean obviously

0:54:070:54:10

we're going to have to get our hands a bit dirty first.

0:54:100:54:12

-Oh, split the cleaning shifts, you mean?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:54:120:54:15

I thought I could do the R&R, you could do the B&B.

0:54:150:54:18

The B&B, with all its bedrooms and bathrooms?

0:54:180:54:21

I don't mind doing the B&B if you like.

0:54:210:54:23

Why are we out here?

0:54:260:54:27

It's a business, Billy.

0:54:270:54:29

And in business, there's got to be casualties...

0:54:290:54:33

I think I have to trim the fat. Sorry.

0:54:330:54:37

Obviously, I can turn my hand to most things, you know, around the home.

0:55:180:55:23

So, if something does come in, you'll let me know, yeah?

0:55:250:55:28

Yeah.

0:55:280:55:30

Course you will. I won't hold my breath.

0:55:300:55:33

Look, Pops, you'll find something. We both will.

0:55:330:55:36

I had something, though.

0:55:360:55:38

I got the R&R and the B&B back from that other outfit,

0:55:380:55:41

I got another new client. I would've got loads more, too, if Michael had let me.

0:55:410:55:45

-HE SIGHS

-Don't worry.

0:55:450:55:48

Like you said, I'll find something.

0:55:480:55:53

Someone's scrubbed up this morning. Is that tie silk?

0:56:060:56:09

Yeah. It all is.

0:56:090:56:12

If you've got it, flaunt it!

0:56:120:56:14

It ain't like you've got anything better to do!

0:56:200:56:23

-DOORBELL RINGS

-Get out the bath and get the door!

0:56:230:56:26

Yeah. Yeah, and bring Abi if she ain't at school, yeah?

0:56:260:56:30

I'll explain later, just meet me there in half-hour.

0:56:300:56:33

-DOORBELL RINGS

-All right, bye-bye.

0:56:330:56:36

Pops, you need to shape up! I'm a full-on working woman now!

0:56:380:56:42

Yes, Lola, motherhood certainly is a full-time job.

0:56:440:56:47

I suppose you want to come in.

0:56:470:56:49

I've been making a few notes, I thought we could go through them.

0:56:530:56:57

But if you've something more important to do...

0:56:580:57:00

Course not.

0:57:000:57:02

These are some of the issues I've identified so far,

0:57:020:57:06

the things we need to chat about.

0:57:060:57:09

-Are you serious?

-Yeah. It's a serious amount of money.

0:57:100:57:14

One-and-a-half grand your old man owes Janine, with interest.

0:57:140:57:18

And that'll make all the difference, will it? And then you'll buy the flat?

0:57:180:57:22

No, no. I'm not interested in that any more.

0:57:220:57:25

So, I've lost all that money I paid the solicitor?

0:57:250:57:28

Yeah. But deals fall through all the time! The world isn't a perfect place.

0:57:280:57:34

Tell me about it!

0:57:370:57:39

PHONE BEEPS

0:57:430:57:46

Lucy, let me clarify.

0:57:560:57:59

You're down on your money, so that makes me down on mine.

0:57:590:58:02

Down? I-I was counting on that sale!

0:58:020:58:06

Fine. All right. I'll just talk to your dad about it, yeah?

0:58:060:58:10

No. I already told Janine, I don't want him bothered.

0:58:100:58:14

So, you don't want to pay the money and you don't want Ian bothered?

0:58:140:58:18

Well... I can't pay it all. Not straightaway.

0:58:180:58:21

But I could do some each week.

0:58:210:58:24

Maybe 50 quid?

0:58:240:58:26

Ah, Tyler man! What's going on...?

0:58:310:58:33

MUSIC REVERBS FROM OUTSIDE

0:58:390:58:41

-Oh, hello!

-Hiya.

0:59:040:59:06

Well?

0:59:060:59:08

-Well, what?

-Details...!

-You've spoken to Jack.

-Yeah.

0:59:080:59:12

Didn't get much out of him. Just that you managed to go on your date.

0:59:120:59:15

So tell me about it! Where? When?

0:59:150:59:18

How did it go?

0:59:180:59:20

Hello?

0:59:200:59:23

Hello?

0:59:230:59:24

-Sharon?

-Er, yeah. Sorry, Tanya. I'll catch you later, OK?

0:59:260:59:31

-A dinner party?

-Mm! And this is what we will need.

0:59:320:59:36

-This is what was so urgent?

-Mm-hm.

0:59:360:59:39

-How many people are we feeding?

-Oh, just the family!

0:59:390:59:42

AJ can't make it, he's visiting some friend or something, so it's just everyone else.

0:59:430:59:48

Oh, and Christian.

0:59:480:59:50

-What's the special occasion?

-Why, has someone said there is one?

0:59:500:59:53

No. It's just that you seem to be going to an awful lot of trouble.

0:59:530:59:56

Nonsense!

0:59:560:59:58

KNOCK AT DOOR

1:00:011:00:03

I was going to ask how you are.

1:00:121:00:15

I really don't need to, do I?

1:00:151:00:17

I thought you were just taking time out. Licking your wounds.

1:00:201:00:24

I would never have left you alone if I thought you were going to get into this sort of state.

1:00:261:00:30

Look, why don't I put the kettle on, get some food on the go,

1:00:301:00:33

-then maybe we can start sorting through this lot?

-I'm fine.

1:00:331:00:36

Look in the mirror, Phil.

1:00:361:00:39

OK, so you're just going to stew in here, are you?

1:00:391:00:42

Drink your way through that, let this all pile up around you, turn into some sort of hermit?

1:00:421:00:48

-I never asked you to come over, did I?

-You called me, just now.

1:00:481:00:51

-Wrong number.

-Oh, come on, Phil, this is me!

1:00:511:00:56

Close the door on your way out, will ya?

1:00:581:01:01

You really did a number on him, didn't you?

1:01:081:01:10

No-one forced your brother to do what he did.

1:01:101:01:14

-And that poker game was his idea.

-Some game.

1:01:141:01:17

And raising the stakes was his idea, too.

1:01:171:01:21

OK, it was a hard lesson to learn, but he learnt it.

1:01:211:01:24

And so should you.

1:01:241:01:26

Don't play with the big boys, Tyler.

1:01:261:01:30

Because you'll lose.

1:01:301:01:32

I could take this off you, but what's the point?

1:01:391:01:43

You'll only go out and get some more.

1:01:431:01:46

If you're going to do this, no-one's going to stop you, are they?

1:01:461:01:49

Well, wouldn't be the first time you've shut everyone out, would it?

1:01:491:01:53

If something...

1:01:551:01:58

-If something happened to Dennis...

-What?

1:01:581:02:00

Something bad, but it was down to you...

1:02:001:02:03

Don't say that.

1:02:031:02:05

..you wouldn't want to go on, would you?

1:02:051:02:09

Look, what happened to Ben,

1:02:121:02:15

it's awful, I know it is, but he is still here.

1:02:151:02:19

And how long's he going to last in a place like that?

1:02:211:02:25

Maybe he'll surprise you. He is still your son.

1:02:251:02:29

-Meaning?

-Meaning, have a little faith.

1:02:291:02:32

Well, why not?

1:02:321:02:34

Because I ain't stupid, and because I don't believe in fairy stories.

1:02:341:02:38

Yeah, and you don't have a crystal ball, neither.

1:02:381:02:41

You can't know how this is going to work out, Phil!

1:02:411:02:44

You've got to hold onto something. Dad always held onto the Vic.

1:02:451:02:50

And someone needs to do that right now. You do know Kat and Alfie have just taken off?

1:02:501:02:55

You know, whenever things got bad,

1:02:571:02:59

whatever he did, wherever he was,

1:02:591:03:02

he always thought, if he could just get back there he could start again.

1:03:021:03:07

And look what happened when he did.

1:03:071:03:10

That could've happened anywhere.

1:03:101:03:13

-It didn't do him a lot of good, did it?

-It's not to do with the Vic.

1:03:131:03:17

Or maybe...he just got it wrong.

1:03:171:03:20

Maybe you got it wrong.

1:03:201:03:23

No, you haven't got Ben,

1:03:241:03:27

and, no, you haven't got Shirley or Jay,

1:03:271:03:30

but you've still got the Vic and you've still got the Arches and the club,

1:03:301:03:34

and it's not the same, I know, but it's something Phil, it's a start.

1:03:341:03:39

Even if you don't care about yourself, you have to think about Ben!

1:03:391:03:43

You've got to hold onto that, for his sake.

1:03:431:03:45

I mean, it's something for him. Something for his future.

1:03:451:03:49

I do understand, you know.

1:03:501:03:53

I mean, how many times have I been down there?

1:03:541:03:57

Thinking, "Just leave me alone, let me give up!"

1:03:571:04:01

You've got to take charge, Phil.

1:04:011:04:04

Get a grip.

1:04:041:04:06

Now, you do that...

1:04:061:04:08

..or you do this.

1:04:091:04:12

I made my choice,

1:04:121:04:14

you make yours.

1:04:141:04:17

Lucy!

1:04:361:04:38

What was that all about?

1:04:411:04:43

You and Count Dracula?

1:04:431:04:46

Just business.

1:04:461:04:47

You're not doing business with Michael?

1:04:471:04:50

No, I'm not. That's the trouble.

1:04:501:04:52

He's interested in the flat.

1:04:521:04:55

What, renting it?

1:04:551:04:56

Buying it.

1:04:561:04:58

-What do you want to sell it for?

-I don't want to sell anything! I just ain't got much choice.

1:04:581:05:03

-Half-hour, you said!

-Sorry, that gobby social worker turned up again.

1:05:131:05:17

-Problem?

-Same rubbish as yesterday.

1:05:171:05:20

-Tell her that, did you?

-Yeah. Now she's upping my visits because of my "attitude problem".

1:05:201:05:23

I mean, I'm trying, ain't I? Why can't they get off my back?

1:05:231:05:26

And that's what this is all about, our new business.

1:05:261:05:29

-What new business?

-I can get cash in my hand, right, and I can buy things for Lexi...

1:05:291:05:33

-Lola, what new business?

-Pops got two clients yesterday, and one new one without even trying.

1:05:331:05:38

We go in even cheaper, we can get it all back.

1:05:381:05:41

-And all the names and numbers are in Janine's old office.

-Which is all boarded up.

1:05:411:05:45

Ah...

1:05:451:05:47

All right, Marie? Two teas, please.

1:05:481:05:51

-Do you want an iced finger, Jack?

-Yeah, I'll have an iced finger.

1:05:511:05:54

Two iced fingers - my treat.

1:05:541:05:56

-You're a bit chipper, ain't you?

-Yeah, I'm flogging the car, ain't I?

1:05:561:06:00

Just need to go to the office and get the paperwork. Abi's got Scarlett, so...

1:06:001:06:04

-Hang on. What, the office that's locked?

-Yeah!

1:06:041:06:07

But not for long, Jack. Not for long.

1:06:071:06:10

It's not just about me any more, Jack. It's about me and Scarlett.

1:06:101:06:13

I've got to start thinking about her interests, as well, you know?

1:06:131:06:17

So, have you decided?

1:06:211:06:24

-Decided what?

-The Emporium - what are you going to do with it!

1:06:241:06:28

-Already done it.

-Oh. Sounds interesting.

1:06:281:06:31

-No point letting the grass grow, eh?

-That's always been my motto.

1:06:311:06:34

Had a great party in there last night.

1:06:341:06:37

-That's it? A party?

-Mm.

1:06:371:06:40

I thought we were going to go into business together.

1:06:401:06:43

That's it.

1:06:441:06:47

MUSICAL RINGTONE

1:06:471:06:49

Anthony?

1:06:521:06:54

TOOLS RATTLE UNDERFOOT

1:07:021:07:04

-There's a word for this, you know?

-Yeah, enterprise.

1:07:341:07:36

No, thieving!

1:07:361:07:38

Shut up and get it open, will you? Go on.

1:07:381:07:41

Yes, I know!

1:07:411:07:44

-Look, could you give me a minute? Dad, this really isn't a good time.

-Two minutes.

-Yeah, OK.

1:07:441:07:48

OK!

1:07:481:07:50

Yeah, sorry, there was just a bit of a misunderstanding. I'm sorting it with the bank today.

1:07:521:07:58

I said, didn't I?

1:07:581:08:01

Yes, Friday!

1:08:011:08:02

No, look, there'll be no more delays!

1:08:021:08:05

Dad...

1:08:051:08:07

What can I do for you?

1:08:071:08:10

Is there something you want to talk to me about?

1:08:101:08:12

-How do you mean?

-You tell me!

1:08:121:08:15

Sorry, Dad, I don't know what -

1:08:151:08:17

This dinner party that your mum's putting on!

1:08:171:08:20

She keeps telling me it's nothing special, but you know the signs as well as I do.

1:08:201:08:24

She won't answer a question, she keeps changing the subject...

1:08:241:08:27

It's a sure sign she's up to something!

1:08:271:08:30

I guess she wants to make the announcement herself, that's all.

1:08:301:08:33

What announcement?

1:08:331:08:35

Lucy!

1:08:381:08:40

I didn't... I didn't know things were that bad.

1:08:431:08:47

Things are fine, don't worry.

1:08:471:08:49

I had a breakdown, OK, not a lobotomy.

1:08:491:08:52

All that with Michael, it wasn't just about the flat, was it?

1:08:521:08:56

I'll sort it.

1:08:561:08:57

It was the money I borrowed from Janine.

1:08:571:09:00

-I'll sort that, too.

-Right, so it was about that, too!

1:09:001:09:03

-How?

-I just will, OK?

1:09:031:09:06

-HE SIGHS

-No, Lucy, I will, OK?

1:09:061:09:08

I borrowed the money, OK? I got us into this mess. I will get us out of this mess.

1:09:081:09:13

You got a secret stash somewhere?

1:09:131:09:17

We've got that. I'm sure people will be queuing up to buy it!

1:09:191:09:23

You've changed your tune.

1:09:231:09:26

Well, like I said, it's... it's my mess.

1:09:261:09:30

I'll get it sorted.

1:09:301:09:32

-Bingo!

-I bet there's dozens of names on there.

1:09:521:09:55

-I told you we'd clean up.

-Hilarious! What are we going to do, call every one?

-The local ones, yeah.

1:09:551:10:00

I hope you've got plenty of credit on your mobile, then.

1:10:001:10:02

Who said anything about using mobiles?

1:10:021:10:06

-DIALLING TONE

-Still connected!

1:10:061:10:09

GLASS SHATTERS

1:10:091:10:12

-Can you hear something?

-Yeah. Cash! And lots and lots of it,

1:10:121:10:16

-flowing in...

-BANGING

1:10:161:10:18

You all right, Ty?

1:11:141:11:17

Er...

1:11:171:11:18

You been looking for Anthony? Because he just rang.

1:11:181:11:23

I've been trying him all morning.

1:11:231:11:25

I mean, he said that he screwed up and, erm,

1:11:251:11:28

that he was sorry... and that he couldn't face you, bruv.

1:11:281:11:33

What was he thinking of?

1:11:331:11:35

Why would he play that stupid game, Fats? And with Derek?

1:11:351:11:38

-He was trying to impress Alice.

-What, by taking on her old man?

1:11:381:11:41

It was probably all Derek's idea.

1:11:411:11:42

You should've heard him, mate, after he cleaned your brother out.

1:11:421:11:46

He's going to me, "Look what I've got for you, Joe,

1:11:461:11:49

"a brand-new business, we can run this together."

1:11:491:11:52

You know, somebody should really teach him a lesson.

1:11:521:11:57

How about you and me?

1:11:571:11:59

We've both got grudges against him, ain't we?

1:11:591:12:03

-You'd do anything to put him down.

-Exactly.

1:12:031:12:06

So, is that what it was, then? You was playing a game and my brother got caught in the middle?

1:12:061:12:11

No, no, no, I told him not to do it, mate!

1:12:111:12:13

He pulled out them keys, not me, Tyler.

1:12:131:12:16

I told him not to go there.

1:12:161:12:18

I thought you lot had closed down.

1:12:461:12:49

-Do we look like we've shut up shop?

-Michael said you had.

1:12:491:12:53

Oh, he's just the boss, what does he know, eh? Nothing!

1:12:531:12:56

With a bit of luck, eh?

1:12:561:12:57

And for one day only, we're offering all local businesses a special, deep clean.

1:12:571:13:03

-Deep clean?

-And for special rates.

1:13:041:13:07

For cash only, obviously.

1:13:071:13:10

-So, what do you say?

-We can start right away.

1:13:101:13:13

Get the charity shop nice and spick and span, in time for my community service tomorrow.

1:13:131:13:17

What I say is simple.

1:13:171:13:19

This stinks to high heaven.

1:13:191:13:22

But as long as my shop doesn't in, say, an hour,

1:13:221:13:27

I don't give a monkey's.

1:13:271:13:29

Lovely! Go on, Jay.

1:13:291:13:31

So, that's what it was all about, you getting your hands on the Emporium?

1:13:361:13:41

"Branning and Son"...

1:13:411:13:43

And what's that got to do with you?

1:13:431:13:46

Nothing. And that's the way I want it to stay.

1:13:461:13:49

So just tell your son that, will you, please?

1:13:491:13:52

I'm not getting dragged into no stupid games, Derek.

1:13:521:13:54

He wants to get at you, and he ain't doing it through me.

1:13:541:13:58

So if you'd all like to raise your glasses, I would like to propose a toast.

1:14:021:14:07

It was meant to be a surprise toast, but never mind.

1:14:071:14:10

To Syed and Christian

1:14:101:14:12

and to your partnership.

1:14:121:14:15

-Actually, we've got a date.

-Oh?

1:14:181:14:20

Yeah. October 16th.

1:14:201:14:23

-Registrar had a window.

-Oh, that's wonderful!

1:14:231:14:27

And I would like to propose a second toast, to Syed and Tamwar,

1:14:271:14:31

who are now business partners.

1:14:311:14:33

-What?

-Syed's coming in on the restaurant.

1:14:331:14:36

Sorry, since when?

1:14:361:14:37

-We discussed it yesterday.

-I thought you knew.

1:14:371:14:40

Isn't it a great idea?

1:14:401:14:42

And he's coming in because?

1:14:421:14:45

Because I'm making such a mess of things, I suppose?

1:14:461:14:48

-It's not just that.

-Meaning it is!

-No...

1:14:481:14:51

I just think it's a good idea. It feels right.

1:14:511:14:55

-That I'm getting things so wrong?

-I don't think your mum meant that.

1:14:551:14:58

Having all the family together.

1:14:581:15:00

I-I thought you'd be happy!

1:15:001:15:03

You're always complaining that you're not cut out for business, unlike your brother.

1:15:031:15:07

-You don't think you're taking on too much, though?

-How do you mean?

1:15:071:15:10

Well, you seemed a bit... stressed earlier.

1:15:101:15:12

-Really?

-Yeah.

1:15:121:15:13

-I was chasing up a few leads, that's all.

-Already?!

1:15:131:15:16

-So long as you're sure...

-Of course he's sure, Masood!

1:15:161:15:20

Otherwise, why would he say it?

1:15:201:15:23

Masood!

1:15:231:15:25

Yeah. Ahem. Syed and Tamwar.

1:15:251:15:29

Syed and Tamwar.

1:15:291:15:31

You taking early retirement?

1:15:411:15:43

Just seen the sign up on your stall.

1:15:431:15:45

You and me both.

1:15:451:15:47

Meaning?

1:15:471:15:49

Well, the Arches is pretty much always closed and no-one's seen you in the Vic for weeks.

1:15:491:15:54

-You calling it a day, as well?

-Just having a bit of time out.

1:15:541:15:57

Join the club.

1:15:571:15:59

That, er...

1:16:021:16:04

..stall was your old man's, wasn't it?

1:16:051:16:08

And his dad's.

1:16:081:16:10

Times change.

1:16:121:16:14

-I don't know, maybe it's karma.

-What?

1:16:141:16:18

-Losing the stall. Maybe I deserve it.

-For?

1:16:201:16:24

Letting people down.

1:16:241:16:27

-Messing up. Not taking my chances.

-PHIL SIGHS

1:16:271:16:31

-Ring any bells?

-No.

1:16:311:16:33

Because I'm not you.

1:16:331:16:36

Maybe there's more to it than that.

1:16:371:16:40

Maybe getting rid of the stall, it's...

1:16:401:16:43

..like I'm clearing everything away.

1:16:431:16:47

Maybe I should've done that with everything else. Just got it out there right from the start.

1:16:471:16:52

Everything. I mean, you, Ben...

1:16:521:16:56

You love it, don't you?

1:16:561:16:58

-What?

-Playing the victim. There's nothing better, is there?

1:16:581:17:02

-What're you talking about?

-Listen to yourself. Look at yourself. You want to get a grip!

1:17:021:17:07

What?

1:17:111:17:12

-Lola?

-Mm?

1:17:181:17:21

-Lo?

-Ssh, Pops, please.

1:17:211:17:26

SHE GROANS

1:17:271:17:29

I've got aches where I ain't even got any muscles.

1:17:291:17:31

Lexi's been as good as gold.

1:17:311:17:35

-Where did all this come from?

-Knocked over that supermarket up on the High Street.

-What?!

1:17:351:17:39

I bought it.

1:17:391:17:41

-How? This is the expensive gear, this is.

-I put Abi on the game.

1:17:411:17:46

Lola?

1:17:461:17:47

Chill, Pops, it's all legit!

1:17:471:17:50

Well, ish...

1:17:501:17:52

Basically, we've been doing some cleaning up at the charity shop.

1:17:521:17:56

Special offer - deep clean, one day only, cash in hand.

1:17:561:17:59

-That lot should sort Lexi out for a bit, don't you?

-Sort her out for a lifetime.

1:17:591:18:04

Least I won't have to nick any off Scarlett.

1:18:041:18:06

And it actually might keep that social worker off our back.

1:18:061:18:09

But it weren't just nappy cream she was going on about, you know.

1:18:091:18:14

It's a start, innit?

1:18:141:18:16

Oh, yeah, course it is!

1:18:161:18:19

Course it is.

1:18:191:18:21

Yep, yeah, it's all there -

1:18:211:18:24

log book, MOT, service record.

1:18:241:18:28

You'll like her, mate, she's lovely. You won't be disappointed.

1:18:281:18:31

-Cheers, then.

-Come on!

1:18:311:18:33

-I've got to see this geezer.

-Well, I hope he ain't too far away!

1:18:331:18:37

You want to have a look what's happening outside. Come on.

1:18:371:18:40

Come on!

1:18:401:18:42

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

1:18:471:18:50

That's my car!

1:18:511:18:54

That's my car, Jack.

1:19:001:19:02

Or was it Janine's?

1:19:021:19:06

-Is this the gear from your travels, then?

-What's it to you?

1:19:341:19:38

Maybe I could help you shift it.

1:19:381:19:40

Set you up on a stall? Move this in no time.

1:19:401:19:44

-And why would you do that?

-My way of making amends?

-Yeah, right!

1:19:441:19:49

All right, maybe I can shift some of my stuff at the same time.

1:19:491:19:51

We've got more in common than you think, me and you.

1:19:511:19:54

Not so I've noticed.

1:19:541:19:56

It's like you said yourself, someone's playing games with us.

1:19:561:20:01

-I told you, I don't play games.

-And neither do I.

1:20:011:20:04

This is business.

1:20:041:20:06

Me and you, straight down the middle.

1:20:061:20:10

Heya.

1:20:131:20:15

Going downhill fast, isn't he?

1:20:171:20:20

Look, maybe I came on a bit strong earlier on...

1:20:321:20:37

Oh, Phil, don't do this!

1:20:371:20:40

You don't give up, do you?

1:20:401:20:43

-What are you doing?

-Returning the favour.

1:20:461:20:50

-All right then, drink? Seal the deal?

-Yeah!

1:20:501:20:54

You go. I'll be in in a bit.

1:20:541:20:56

What are you doing?

1:21:021:21:04

It's your dad's stall, right? Like it was his dad's, and his, too.

1:21:041:21:08

Look, this really wasn't my idea.

1:21:081:21:10

-You just need the money, right?

-The flat sale fell through.

1:21:101:21:13

I'll find you a buyer. Well, a tenant at least.

1:21:131:21:16

Keep this stall in the family, where it belongs. And keep your old man working on it.

1:21:161:21:20

You say goodbye to this, you might as well say goodbye to him.

1:21:201:21:24

-Never knew you cared.

-Well, he's feeble enough as it is.

1:21:241:21:27

God knows what'd happen to him if this went.

1:21:271:21:30

-You're all heart, aren't you?

-Great big softy!

1:21:301:21:35

Thank you.

1:21:361:21:38

BACKGROUND CHATTER

1:21:411:21:44

-Oi!

-Yeah? Hey, hey! Erm...

1:21:451:21:49

-Fill the optics with these.

-What?

1:21:491:21:52

And put the prices up. I had to paid retail for 'em.

1:21:521:21:55

Fiver a shot, or more if the punters are out of it.

1:21:551:21:58

If you sign that,

1:21:591:22:01

I will break your fingers one by one.

1:22:011:22:04

-Then I'll turn that stall into firewood.

-Hey!

1:22:041:22:07

And one word out of you, just one,

1:22:071:22:10

and you'll be spitting out your teeth.

1:22:101:22:13

Yeah, g-got it! F-Fiver a shot. And more if the punter's out of it.

1:22:141:22:19

-And put some music on, will ya?

-Yes.

1:22:191:22:21

-This gaff's like a morgue!

-OK.

1:22:211:22:24

What's happening?

1:22:241:22:25

Phil's back.

1:22:251:22:27

MUSIC: "Club Foot" by Kasabian

1:22:271:22:42

Christian?

1:22:401:22:42

MOBILE RINGS

1:22:501:22:54

I am a woman of taste, Christian.

1:23:001:23:02

Everybody knows that if it was left to you

1:23:021:23:04

-my son would be wearing a pink cowboy hat.

-You really don't...

1:23:041:23:06

-What?

-Zainab, we really want you to be involved,

1:23:061:23:10

but you're going to have to learn to respect our...

1:23:101:23:13

No, no, no, this is my son's big day.

1:23:131:23:15

What is needed is a hands-on approach.

1:23:151:23:18

Zee Interfering? Never(!)

1:23:181:23:19

When you stop treating this place like a hostel

1:23:191:23:22

then perhaps somebody might ask your opinion.

1:23:221:23:24

Until then, munh bandh rakhna, please!

1:23:241:23:27

It's not every day that your son has a partnership ceremony.

1:23:271:23:30

A marriage ceremony.

1:23:301:23:32

-Doesn't matter what you call it, it's hardly going to last with this family's track record.

-Tamwar!

1:23:321:23:36

-Tam!

-Where is the prodigal son anyway?

1:23:361:23:38

He's meant to be here saving the family business,

1:23:381:23:40

seeing as I'm incapable of doing it alone.

1:23:401:23:42

No, no, no, no, there's no problem.

1:23:471:23:49

Just give me till the end of today. You'll get your money.

1:23:501:23:54

Don't suppose you've got a spare ten grand, have you?

1:23:591:24:02

Bounce!

1:24:021:24:04

-You're not thinking this through.

-Will you stop going on?

-I'm being serious.

-So am I.

1:24:061:24:10

You're going to stay at Honey's for a couple of weeks

1:24:101:24:12

cos she's got a new job and you got to look after the kids, big deal, I get it, Pops.

1:24:121:24:15

Why you acting like such an old nag?

1:24:151:24:17

Because now they've upped the level of contact, ain't they?

1:24:171:24:21

You'll have visits from the social worker, family support officer, health visitor...

1:24:211:24:24

Yeah, and I'll invite them all round to the party while you're away.

1:24:241:24:27

This ain't a joke.

1:24:271:24:29

Right, I'm going to do my last day of community service, all right?

1:24:291:24:32

Well, let me look after Lexi, yeah?

1:24:321:24:34

Nah, you're all right, Cora'll have her. See ya.

1:24:341:24:37

See ya.

1:24:371:24:39

Oh c'mon, you're going to be working all weekend.

1:24:391:24:41

You've already wasted one night on a bloke.

1:24:411:24:43

Me and Denny are going to watch a DVD tonight.

1:24:431:24:45

Right, you're going to stay in and watch Spongebob? On a Friday night?

1:24:451:24:49

-Something wrong with that?

-Oh no, course not. If you're six.

1:24:491:24:52

Get Ian to look after him.

1:24:521:24:54

No. He's had him once already this week, Tan.

1:24:541:24:56

Right, so he knows what he's doing. Give us a chance to talk about a certain wedding that's coming up.

1:24:561:25:00

Not sure I'm the right person to ask.

1:25:001:25:03

Couple of glasses of wine, you know, some adult company,

1:25:031:25:06

nice, sophisticated night out.

1:25:061:25:09

Sophisticated? At the Vic?

1:25:091:25:11

All right, time to go and beautify the residents of E20.

1:25:121:25:15

OK.

1:25:151:25:17

If you change your mind, call me.

1:25:191:25:22

See ya.

1:25:221:25:23

This is ridiculous.

1:25:281:25:30

Keep 'em closed. Patience, and all will be revealed.

1:25:301:25:32

-Didn't they tell you in school not to walk off with strange men?

-Yes, thank you, Phillip(!)

1:25:321:25:36

Stand there and...open them.

1:25:371:25:41

-Del...

-Uh!

-Derek, you're a diamond.

1:25:441:25:49

-How'd you sort with the market so quickly?

-Where there's a will, and there most certainly was, young man,

1:25:491:25:54

there's a way.

1:25:541:25:55

All you've got to do is go to work and earn us some money. Oh, and don't forget...

1:25:551:25:59

..there's special deals for the special customers.

1:26:021:26:06

Now...partner?

1:26:081:26:12

Ha-ha!

1:26:121:26:14

There! You see, he likes this one better. Don't you, AJ?

1:26:141:26:19

There is a difference between liking and choking!

1:26:191:26:21

Ah, Syed, will you please tell this man

1:26:211:26:25

that I have catered more functions than he's had hangovers.

1:26:251:26:28

Help me, please!

1:26:281:26:30

-Nice of you to show up.

-I had some things to sort out, Tam.

1:26:301:26:33

Like a decent venue?

1:26:331:26:35

Do I have to remind everyone that there are only 25 days left

1:26:351:26:38

till the 16th October?

1:26:381:26:40

What's wrong with the registry office? It's all sorted!

1:26:401:26:42

Registry... That is so dreary! Don't you want your day to be perfect, Christian?

1:26:421:26:46

-Yes.

-Good.

-Only the best!

1:26:461:26:50

OK, right, you - you take the children into the other room, OK?

1:26:501:26:53

Because we've got a lot to get through.

1:26:531:26:55

Zee, baby-sitting really ain't my thing.

1:26:551:26:57

While Mas is having his school meetings you promised you would pull your weight.

1:26:571:27:01

Can you not do one thing to help this family out?

1:27:011:27:03

Why don't we take the kids round mine?

1:27:031:27:04

Look, we're only going to get in your way.

1:27:041:27:07

You both know what you're doing. You don't need my help.

1:27:071:27:09

I'll come back for lunch, then you and me can talk shop, Tambo?

1:27:091:27:13

No, cos I've got to go and pick up some after dinner mints.

1:27:131:27:16

Well, I'll get them on the way round to mine.

1:27:161:27:18

Right, I'll see you at the flat, AJ.

1:27:181:27:20

You'll be all right with the kids for a bit, won't you?

1:27:201:27:22

Um...

1:27:251:27:27

I tell you what, why don't I help get her things together?

1:27:271:27:30

Come on.

1:27:301:27:31

After dinner mints. He's proving to be quite a help(!)

1:27:311:27:34

Your brother is going to help get our business out of the mess

1:27:341:27:37

that you and Afia have left it in.

1:27:371:27:39

It wouldn't hurt you to show him a little bit of gratitude!

1:27:391:27:41

Hey, watch where you're going, young lady!

1:27:451:27:48

All right?

1:27:561:27:58

What's that for?

1:27:581:27:59

Turning up.

1:27:591:28:01

That's what mates do, ain't it?

1:28:011:28:03

Yeah, best mates.

1:28:031:28:05

Try it again. Please.

1:28:121:28:14

Look...

1:28:141:28:15

I know they say that third time's a charm and everything,

1:28:151:28:18

but I don't think it applies to when your card declines.

1:28:181:28:21

There must be some mistake.

1:28:211:28:22

What, Christian been having too many Margaritas down the R&R?

1:28:221:28:27

Look, Sy, I understand, I live with Kim.

1:28:281:28:32

-It's like trying to manage the Greek economy.

-Can I pay you later?

1:28:321:28:35

Now can you imagine if I asked your mum to pay on tick...?

1:28:351:28:38

Oh, Sy!

1:28:381:28:40

Your infamous customer service still working its magic, I see!

1:28:401:28:44

-There's a girly night in the Vic later.

-I'm busy.

1:28:441:28:46

Reading Fifty Shades Of Grey is not busy.

1:28:461:28:49

Well, who's going then?

1:28:491:28:51

Me, the Chippendales, couple of the West Ham first team.

1:28:511:28:54

Who do you think?

1:28:541:28:55

-Well, it's just that I...

-Just that I will see you there.

1:28:551:28:58

But I, no...

1:28:581:29:00

Speak to him. You know him better than...

1:29:021:29:05

You all right, Mr Mitchell?

1:29:051:29:08

What?

1:29:081:29:10

Well, you know, it's heavy that you're back, yeah?

1:29:101:29:13

But the thing is, this place has been proper quiet since you've been gone.

1:29:131:29:17

And, you know, there ain't no party like a Phil man party,

1:29:171:29:19

so we were wondering...

1:29:191:29:21

Just spit it out, will ya?

1:29:211:29:23

-If you would be keeping us on?

-Yeah.

-Now you're back.

-Right.

1:29:231:29:26

-The two of us.

-Well, that depends.

-On what?

1:29:261:29:29

On whether you continue to get on my nerves all day.

1:29:291:29:34

Yeah, OK.

1:29:401:29:42

She's in my shop, not yours.

1:29:431:29:46

If she wants to bring the baby in, she can.

1:29:461:29:49

And as it was me who delivered the baby,

1:29:491:29:53

I'm pretty sure I'm capable of looking after it.

1:29:531:29:57

It's just not really protocol, Ms Cross.

1:29:571:30:02

Lola, she's here to work.

1:30:021:30:03

She doesn't need distractions.

1:30:031:30:06

You know what you can do with your protocol, don't you?

1:30:061:30:08

Daughters need to be around their mothers.

1:30:091:30:12

Why don't you run along, before you really...get on my nerves?

1:30:141:30:19

That told her.

1:30:231:30:25

I hope you two are going to work as hard as you did yesterday.

1:30:251:30:28

Bet you're glad you came, innit. This is well fun.

1:30:301:30:33

Ain't that bad.

1:30:331:30:35

I promise I'll make it up to you, right, when Pops has gone.

1:30:351:30:38

No, I mean have a party, you idiot.

1:30:381:30:42

Having a free house is going to be sick.

1:30:421:30:45

Why, what did you think I meant?

1:30:451:30:47

You're here to work, not mess around.

1:30:511:30:54

Cow.

1:30:561:30:58

It's all right, you'll be free in a couple of hours.

1:30:581:31:01

Yeah, I understand.

1:31:051:31:07

No, I got your number off the internet.

1:31:091:31:11

Listen, I'm not cold calling.

1:31:111:31:14

I've got a lot of cleaning products at very reasonable...

1:31:151:31:19

MOBILE RINGS

1:31:311:31:36

Uncle AJ?

1:31:361:31:37

Yeah, I'll be there in a...

1:31:371:31:40

What do you mean, an emergency?

1:31:411:31:43

Abs, you can't get me out of work and then just not say anything.

1:31:451:31:48

Well, you told me not to say his name, so I'm not.

1:31:481:31:50

Oh, not this again!

1:31:501:31:52

Well, I saw him with Lola, Mum.

1:31:521:31:53

And?

1:31:531:31:55

It looked like... like they were together.

1:31:551:31:58

Well, darling, if he's moving on, then maybe you should too.

1:31:581:32:03

I knew you'd be like this.

1:32:031:32:05

Like what? I just want the best for you, darling.

1:32:051:32:08

You know that. The boy is up on charges.

1:32:081:32:11

I thought you were meant to be innocent until proven guilty in this country?

1:32:111:32:14

Don't start.

1:32:141:32:16

It's just Lola. We were meant to be mates, the three of us.

1:32:161:32:20

Darling, I know you're hurting right now. I do.

1:32:221:32:25

But there will be other boys. I promise you.

1:32:251:32:27

Trust me, there will be other boys

1:32:271:32:31

who don't come with a prison sentence hanging round their neck.

1:32:311:32:33

Shh. I just got them to sleep in Yas's room.

1:32:371:32:42

Toddlers really ain't my thing.

1:32:421:32:45

Uncle AJ, I only left you for...

1:32:451:32:47

An age, actually.

1:32:471:32:49

I had an errand to run.

1:32:491:32:51

Well, they're quiet now. I fancy some Loose Women.

1:32:511:32:55

On the telly. I meant on the... Urgh!

1:32:561:32:59

No, no! You can help me by tidying this place up.

1:32:591:33:02

HE GROANS

1:33:021:33:04

MOBILE RINGS

1:33:041:33:07

Yeah, hello?

1:33:071:33:11

All right, well, what do you reckon to this one?

1:33:111:33:13

-Nah.

-No? What about now?

1:33:131:33:19

Yeah? Hang on, hang on.

1:33:191:33:22

Cowboy!

1:33:221:33:25

Hello, sweetheart, what are you doing here?

1:33:291:33:32

Just thought I'd come and give you a hand.

1:33:321:33:34

Don't need any more hands at the moment, darling.

1:33:341:33:38

Just need to watch what the little tea leaves are doing with them.

1:33:381:33:41

You all right, Abi?

1:33:411:33:44

Yeah, great, you? I didn't know you'd be here with Lola today.

1:33:441:33:51

I don't think your mum would be too happy...

1:33:531:33:55

Oh, Nan, it's not...

1:33:551:33:57

Then again, my mother wouldn't have been too happy with the boys I hung about with.

1:33:571:34:01

All right?

1:34:081:34:09

-Yeah.

-I just wanted to say, I'm really happy for you.

1:34:091:34:12

-Well, both of you.

-Will you give us a hand with these?

1:34:121:34:15

It's just Jay's had a really tough time lately,

1:34:151:34:17

so it's really good he's got someone to speak to.

1:34:171:34:20

He needs a girlfriend.

1:34:201:34:21

What girlfriend?

1:34:211:34:23

I've made a start, but cleaning really isn't my forte.

1:34:321:34:35

You all right?

1:34:351:34:37

Yeah, it's nothing.

1:34:371:34:41

Don't bluff a bluffer, mate.

1:34:411:34:43

It's just, I had a business deal with Michael...

1:34:461:34:49

What, as in, shop boarded up Michael?

1:34:491:34:51

Yeah. That's the one.

1:34:511:34:53

Tricky. Very tricky. What you going to do?

1:34:531:34:55

Unless you've found a small fortune down the back of the sofa, not a lot.

1:34:551:35:00

Sy, I ain't the guy to give financial advice.

1:35:001:35:03

But where I'm from, if you're losing big,

1:35:031:35:05

double down and grit your teeth.

1:35:051:35:08

Either that or just try and stay out of his way.

1:35:081:35:11

No point worrying! Eh?

1:35:121:35:14

BABY CRIES

1:35:141:35:18

Thank you.

1:35:181:35:20

Yeah, it's Syed Masood. I don't have your money.

1:35:321:35:35

And I won't be able to get it by today.

1:35:351:35:38

So, why don't you stop calling me and I'll give you a call

1:35:381:35:40

by the beginning of next week and let you know when I'll have it for you.

1:35:401:35:44

I'm not even joking,

1:35:461:35:47

if I have to spend another minute with your mum

1:35:471:35:50

there's not going to be a wedding, there's going to be a funeral.

1:35:501:35:54

-Will you just listen?

-Well, I saw you kiss.

1:35:561:35:59

-What, outside? That was nothing.

-You don't have to lie to me.

1:35:591:36:02

Maybe you two can sort this out somewhere else?

1:36:021:36:05

Lola, will you please tell her there's nothing going on?

1:36:051:36:08

Look, Abs, I was just having a laugh. I was just trying to wind you up,

1:36:081:36:12

I didn't mean to upset you, all right?

1:36:121:36:15

But just sometimes, it's like, it would be nice

1:36:151:36:17

if we could hang out without you two going all Romeo and Juliet on me.

1:36:171:36:20

Oh! I could have done this quicker myself.

1:36:221:36:26

Well, six hands are better than one. So we'll get this done in no time.

1:36:261:36:31

You seen Lexi's tiger? She won't settle.

1:36:311:36:34

Ain't it with her?

1:36:341:36:36

No. Never mind.

1:36:361:36:38

I'll have to put some brandy in her bottle instead.

1:36:381:36:41

-What?

-Joking.

-Brandy, but...?

1:36:411:36:44

You want to sort these out then?

1:36:451:36:48

Mum, I love you and I know you're only trying to help

1:37:021:37:05

but this is mine and Christian's wedding.

1:37:051:37:07

So you need to listen to what we want.

1:37:071:37:09

But I know what you want.

1:37:091:37:11

Yeah, and so does Christian.

1:37:111:37:13

So if I leave you two to it,

1:37:151:37:17

please, maybe, you can try not to end up killing each other?

1:37:171:37:21

I thought I'd get some as well, just in case.

1:37:281:37:30

-Tam, I'm sorry.

-The restaurant isn't making a profit

1:37:301:37:33

but I've got to somehow find three months' mortgage arrears.

1:37:331:37:36

-And you can't even remember to pick up some after dinner mints.

-You haven't paid the mortgage?

1:37:361:37:40

-You've more important things to do than help me.

-You're my brother. Nothing's more important.

1:37:401:37:43

Well, act like it then.

1:37:431:37:45

-You drive a hard bargain, Mr Trueman.

-Yeah, man.

1:37:471:37:51

-Hey, Patrick.

-Billy, Billy, what do you think about that?

1:37:511:37:54

Yeah, yeah, it's nice.

1:37:541:37:56

Listen, any chance of you popping round ours later?

1:37:561:37:59

-I need to ask you something, yeah?

-Yeah, all right.

1:37:591:38:01

All right, Ty? How we doing then?

1:38:011:38:04

Bosh!

1:38:041:38:05

Look at that! I'm impressed.

1:38:051:38:07

Tell you what, why don't we go out for a ruby tonight? My treat.

1:38:071:38:11

With Whit away I'm not really feeling like a big night out.

1:38:111:38:13

Nonsense, got to celebrate our new business venture, haven't we?

1:38:131:38:16

You know what they say about business partners? As close to family as you can get.

1:38:161:38:21

Well done, son, I'm proud of you.

1:38:211:38:23

-Enjoying being his monkey then, are we?

-Keep your mouth shut, mate.

1:38:281:38:32

Got you wrapped right round his little finger.

1:38:321:38:35

You know this is all just some game to him, Tyler.

1:38:351:38:37

Look, bruv, I'm just trying to earn a living.

1:38:371:38:39

Whatever it is you got going on with Derek...

1:38:391:38:42

When I first met you, I thought you might have something about you.

1:38:421:38:45

Do you know that? But you're just another lapdog, ain't you?

1:38:451:38:48

-What?

-Another mug.

1:38:481:38:50

Just like that half-wit brother of yours.

1:38:501:38:53

Nice shot.

1:39:001:39:02

I'll let you have that one for free, eh.

1:39:041:39:06

See you later.

1:39:081:39:09

-So how do you feel?

-What?

1:39:141:39:16

Now you've paid your debt to society!

1:39:161:39:18

Just means I get to spend some more time with you two dumbos, don't it?

1:39:181:39:22

The gang's back together.

1:39:221:39:24

-Abs...

-Yeah?

1:39:241:39:26

Don't ever call us a gang again.

1:39:261:39:28

That is literally the uncoolest thing you have ever said.

1:39:281:39:30

Where you going?

1:39:331:39:35

Need to put some fun back into this place!

1:39:351:39:38

You're here?

1:39:421:39:44

Come and have a look at this.

1:39:441:39:46

How did you...?

1:39:511:39:52

Well, I managed to speak to some of our suppliers,

1:39:521:39:55

put on a bit of the old Masood charm.

1:39:551:39:58

Delayed payments to the big ones for a bit.

1:39:581:40:00

You know, couple of grand here, couple of grand there.

1:40:001:40:03

They know we're good for it next month.

1:40:031:40:05

And with the money I've saved, we can cover the restaurant.

1:40:051:40:09

I can't believe...

1:40:101:40:12

Well, it's all there in the business accounts ready to hand over.

1:40:121:40:15

Nine grand. Mortgage covered.

1:40:151:40:18

That degree in economics does come in handy every now and again.

1:40:201:40:23

I don't know what to say.

1:40:251:40:27

Well, why didn't you tell me you were in trouble?

1:40:271:40:30

That's what families are for.

1:40:321:40:34

I've been an idiot to you, OK.

1:40:361:40:39

It's not your fault we're in this mess.

1:40:391:40:43

So if there's anything I can do to make it up...

1:40:431:40:46

Well, there is one thing.

1:40:461:40:49

Be my best man.

1:40:491:40:52

You didn't get to do it for Darren,

1:40:521:40:55

well, I'm asking you to do it for me.

1:40:551:40:57

I hope you're hungry, little man?

1:41:001:41:01

We don't need no-one when we've got popcorn and a DVD, do we?

1:41:011:41:04

Hi, Ian, it's me. I couldn't ask the biggest favour, could I?

1:41:261:41:30

That'll give 'em something to remember us by, won't it?

1:41:391:41:41

Wonder if it'll last longer than the four of us.

1:41:411:41:43

No, course not. We're the future of the Square, aren't we?

1:41:431:41:46

I mean, look at Abi, she is a proper Dot Branning in the making.

1:41:461:41:50

Well, if I'm Dot then you're Kat Moon.

1:41:501:41:52

Oh, yeah! "Cor, come on Alfie, give us a kiss.

1:41:521:41:55

"Give us a kiss, Alfie."

1:41:551:41:57

MOBILE RINGS

1:41:591:42:01

Hello?

1:42:011:42:03

Pops, calm down, calm down, I've got ages till my curfew time.

1:42:031:42:07

All right, all right. All right, I'll be home in a minute.

1:42:071:42:09

-No, Jeanie, you got to snap it out.

-Snap it out.

1:42:121:42:15

That's it. One more time.

1:42:151:42:16

It's no good. I'll never make a superstar DJ.

1:42:161:42:19

You know, if I wanted to keep my job,

1:42:191:42:22

I'd do a bit more than stand around like a pair of lemons.

1:42:221:42:25

Now, you, start topping up the spirits.

1:42:251:42:27

And, you, take that over there

1:42:271:42:28

before them two start ripping down the wallpaper.

1:42:281:42:31

I'm going to! Straight off!

1:42:311:42:33

This is just what I needed. A bottle of wine with a good mate.

1:42:331:42:36

Yeah, amen to that. Bit of solace on a Friday night.

1:42:361:42:39

And how are my two favourite ladies?

1:42:391:42:41

Oh, hello. Now we were just discussing

1:42:411:42:44

whether or not you were ready to commit to a single mother, yeah.

1:42:441:42:47

Take on the responsibility of a child. Maybe children.

1:42:471:42:51

Pay the bills. Put food on the table.

1:42:511:42:53

Keep that bed warm, Fats, you know, through those cold winter nights.

1:42:531:42:57

Uh, just, uh...

1:42:571:42:59

-You are a bad woman, Tanya Cross.

-Bad? I haven't even started yet.

1:42:591:43:03

Let me introduce you to the girly night turbo charger.

1:43:031:43:07

-What are you doing here?

-Night out, ain't it?

1:43:071:43:10

-Mr Fats.

-Yes, Kimmy?

1:43:101:43:12

-A round of your finest Sambucas, please.

-Good times.

1:43:121:43:17

Well, that was a good day's work, weren't it?

1:43:191:43:21

-There you go, gents.

-Thank you, Syed.

1:43:211:43:24

I think our little arrangement could turn out to be quite lucrative.

1:43:241:43:28

All right, what's with the face?

1:43:291:43:31

It just doesn't feel the same without Anthony.

1:43:331:43:36

This was something we was meant to be doing together, know what I mean?

1:43:361:43:40

Look, this is going to sound harsh,

1:43:401:43:43

but sometimes that's how it's got to sound.

1:43:431:43:45

He's done this before, ain't he?

1:43:471:43:49

-How d'you know?

-He's a punter, Ty.

1:43:491:43:52

And it doesn't matter if it comes between love and money,

1:43:521:43:54

he'll always let you down.

1:43:541:43:55

Now, I like Anthony. He's a good lad.

1:43:551:43:59

But he brought this on himself. No-one else. Least of all you.

1:44:001:44:05

We've got a special offer on the house wine tonight.

1:44:091:44:11

Buy one bottle, get one half price.

1:44:111:44:13

Well, seeing we're celebrating I think we'll go for that, don't you?

1:44:131:44:17

Yes, mate. Yes, we will.

1:44:171:44:19

Promotion's working already. Told you.

1:44:211:44:24

We'll get out this mess.

1:44:241:44:25

You took your time, didn't you?

1:44:371:44:38

We're here now, aren't we? Just chill. Chill.

1:44:381:44:42

What are they doing here?

1:44:441:44:45

We needed to talk about who's going to look after you while I'm away.

1:44:451:44:49

-I said I'll be all right.

-What are you going to live off, eh? How you going to cope on your own?

1:44:491:44:53

-I said...

-Calm down, young lady.

1:44:531:44:55

We just want what's best for you, all right?

1:44:551:44:58

Have you had some kind of accident?

1:44:581:44:59

Well, it weren't Lexi, must have been one of you.

1:44:591:45:03

-Is that paint?

-What about it?

1:45:031:45:06

Have you any idea the chemicals that has in it?

1:45:061:45:09

We were only having a laugh.

1:45:091:45:11

That stuff could aggravate all kinds of skin conditions.

1:45:111:45:14

You think Lexi's welfare is just a laugh?

1:45:141:45:17

She wasn't saying that and you know it.

1:45:171:45:19

Can we just concentrate on what we're talking about here?

1:45:191:45:22

-Lo', we've been talking, yeah?

-Oh, thanks for waiting(!)

1:45:241:45:27

Just shut up for a minute, will you?

1:45:271:45:29

While I'm away, Patrick is going to be your responsible adult.

1:45:291:45:33

That means he's moving in here with you and Lexi.

1:45:341:45:37

Can we please stop talking about children?

1:45:391:45:42

This is meant to be a night out.

1:45:421:45:43

I better be going anyway.

1:45:431:45:44

Eh? It's early yet.

1:45:441:45:46

We haven't even got the dirt on Walford's most eligible boxing club owner yet!

1:45:461:45:49

Rather keep me food down, if you don't mind. But you know, feel free.

1:45:491:45:53

Please! All she's had is Patrick's long johns and that book keeping her going these last few months.

1:45:531:45:58

-Come on, spill.

-All right.

-Yeah?

1:45:581:46:00

He's nice.

1:46:001:46:02

Nice?

1:46:021:46:04

Nice ain't really rocking the boat though, is it?

1:46:041:46:07

-No. We want nasty.

-Exactly.

-It weren't that long ago you were knocking him off yourself, Tan!

1:46:071:46:11

Surely your memory ain't that short, is it?

1:46:111:46:13

I need the little girls' room.

1:46:171:46:18

-Yes.

-Denise?

-Yeah.

1:46:181:46:20

So if you have any problems, you've got my number, Lola.

1:46:221:46:26

Thank you.

1:46:261:46:29

I can't believe you called her behind my back.

1:46:321:46:35

Young lady, everybody needs a bit of help sometimes, you know.

1:46:351:46:38

Now listen, Lo.

1:46:421:46:44

While I'm away Patrick's in charge, so you do whatever he says.

1:46:441:46:47

You hear me?

1:46:471:46:48

-Right, I reckon that's me.

-What you talking about?

1:46:501:46:54

We still got half a bottle of wine to knock out here.

1:46:541:46:56

I've got to give Whitney a ring and I want to get a good night's kip.

1:46:561:46:59

-Early start on the stall tomorrow.

-Ah, the modern work ethic. I respect that.

1:46:591:47:03

-Cheers for the ruby.

-Don't mention it.

1:47:031:47:05

Oh, and Tyler?

1:47:071:47:09

To the future, son.

1:47:091:47:12

Good evening, sir. Would you like a takeaway or sit in?

1:47:161:47:20

Takeaway. Definitely takeaway.

1:47:201:47:23

-Do you think she's angry?

-Which one?

-Tanya!

1:47:271:47:31

Well, considering you just put your size nines in...

1:47:311:47:33

Are you two going to stay there all night?

1:47:331:47:37

No. I'm sorry about that. It's her. I didn't know stupid was contagious.

1:47:371:47:42

It's all right. We've just been comparing notes, ain't we?

1:47:421:47:44

You know, I might have had a few drinks,

1:47:441:47:47

but you're all right, you.

1:47:471:47:48

-My round, is it?

-Yes, it is.

1:47:481:47:52

Phil? Mr Mitchell, we just wondered if you'd made up your mind yet?

1:47:521:47:56

About the jobs?

1:47:561:47:57

You look like you're enjoying yourself.

1:47:571:48:00

So do you. Glad to see you took my advice.

1:48:001:48:03

What you gawping at? Serve her, it's a pub, ain't it?

1:48:041:48:06

Yeah, course, Phillipo, man... Er, Mr Mitchell.

1:48:061:48:10

-More wine?

-And you, make yourself useful

1:48:101:48:13

and go and collect some empties or something.

1:48:131:48:15

You work for me now, not some pushover like Alfie.

1:48:151:48:20

I'm not joking, you could do with an early night.

1:48:241:48:27

Seriously, Tambo. There's only these few customers left.

1:48:271:48:30

I just feel weird leaving you on your own.

1:48:301:48:32

I'll be fine. Go and tell Mum the good news.

1:48:321:48:34

-If you're sure?

-Course I am.

1:48:341:48:36

Syed, you know I...

1:48:371:48:39

Me too. Go!

1:48:391:48:42

Quite the man to find, aren't you, Mr Masood?

1:48:501:48:53

I got your message. Now, where's my money?

1:48:531:48:56

Well?

1:48:591:49:00

Yes, that is beautiful.

1:49:001:49:03

-I know.

-And no stupid cowboy hats.

1:49:031:49:06

No, no stupid cowboy hats.

1:49:061:49:08

You know, maybe us working together like this

1:49:101:49:14

wasn't such a bad idea after all.

1:49:141:49:16

You're wearing that.

1:49:181:49:20

I am not wearing that! She's naked! Look at that.

1:49:201:49:23

Is Sy with you? I wanted to show him something.

1:49:231:49:26

-No, he's just finishing up.

-My little worker bee.

1:49:261:49:29

But I do have some news. He asked me to be his best man.

1:49:291:49:33

Come here, you. Mwah! I can't think of anybody better.

1:49:351:49:39

See. It's all going to work out.

1:49:411:49:44

Our family is finally moving on.

1:49:441:49:47

Tamwar Masood?

1:50:141:50:15

Is there a problem?

1:50:151:50:18

None whatsoever.

1:50:191:50:21
