No, Mrs Jessop doesn't live here any more.

0:00:240:00:28

I'm her sister. Yeah, she's... She's moved on.

0:00:280:00:31

Am I happy with my internet?!

0:00:330:00:34

PHONE VIBRATES

0:00:340:00:37

Alfie, do you want to dress Tommy?

0:00:480:00:50

Still think you've lost the plot.

0:01:010:01:03

-No, my mate rang this morning. He was practically giving them away.

-Christmas trees? In November?

0:01:030:01:07

Shut up, you donkey! Alfie Moon is setting a trend.

0:01:070:01:10

Those Santas flew off the shelves so quick,

0:01:100:01:12

-I thought Rudolph would get a speeding ticket.

-Alfie, it's still November.

0:01:120:01:16

What you talking about? It's never too early for Christmas. Come on!

0:01:160:01:20

They're trees. They ain't got legs. Let's get a move on.

0:01:200:01:23

Well, if it's not Janine, then who's doing it?

0:01:230:01:27

-What about Dancer and Prancer?

-What, Syed and Christian?

0:01:270:01:30

I don't think it's their style. They'd do it in song.

0:01:300:01:32

Phil.

0:01:320:01:34

Phil!

0:01:360:01:37

-She's got a man in her room.

-Oh, no, that's her wireless.

0:01:430:01:46

-They were banging the headboard.

-There's no cause for vulgarity, Cora.

0:01:460:01:50

And it ain't the first time. She's pulled the vicar!

0:01:500:01:53

The Vicar? The Vicar's not for pulling.

0:01:530:01:57

We're talking your sister.

0:01:570:01:59

Me half-sister.

0:01:590:02:00

DOORBELL RINGS The Vicar. In my back bedroom?

0:02:000:02:05

Bit of cheap lippy, couple of G and Ts.

0:02:050:02:08

She wouldn't.

0:02:080:02:09

DOORBELL RINGS Would she?

0:02:090:02:11

Mrs Cross. Mrs Branning.

0:02:160:02:18

I am never drinking vodka again.

0:02:270:02:29

You said that last week, didn't you? There you go, darling.

0:02:290:02:32

-Do you want me to take you this morning?

-No, I'll be fine.

0:02:320:02:36

You seen my essay?

0:02:360:02:37

You're going to want some more of that?

0:02:370:02:40

-I'll get it myself then.

-Dunno who Shirley thinks she is.

0:02:400:02:43

-You took your time.

-She looks at me like I'm dirt.

0:02:430:02:45

-Have YOU seen my essay for English?

-I only said hello.

-I left it in here.

0:02:450:02:49

I still want those shoes, you know?

0:02:490:02:51

All right, I'm going back to bed.

0:02:510:02:54

Could you take Oscar in for me?

0:02:540:02:55

-Sorry. Busy.

-Please, look I want to get in early, I've...

-Look, I got your milk, didn't I?

0:02:550:03:00

-I can't do everything round here.

-Thanks a lot(!)

0:03:000:03:03

Abi! That's for Oscar!

0:03:060:03:07

Wasn't me. I'm invisible.

0:03:070:03:09

-More tea, Vicar?

-I wanted to have a little word with Rose.

0:03:170:03:20

Rose? She's out.

0:03:200:03:22

Said she'd give me a hand again with next month's church social.

0:03:220:03:25

Oh, she went out early. Very early.

0:03:250:03:29

Exercise, you see.

0:03:290:03:30

She loves her exercise. Can't get enough.

0:03:300:03:33

And, between you and me, I've got two tickets for next week at the Hackney Empire.

0:03:330:03:38

Oh, how lovely. Well, I'll tell her that you called.

0:03:380:03:40

-That'll be her now.

-Cora.

-Rose!

-Just a second.

0:03:400:03:45

Get your face down here. You've got a visitor!

0:03:450:03:48

And bring your friend!

0:03:480:03:50

Ah, didn't know there was a party going on.

0:03:500:03:53

Morning.

0:03:580:04:00

Er...

0:04:030:04:04

See you, bye.

0:04:060:04:07

-Lola!

-I've got fryers to clean.

0:04:180:04:21

Right, you want me to put that in a note to your teacher?

0:04:210:04:24

Look, I've had a letter from your school. You've been bunking off.

0:04:240:04:27

-Everyone gets them. They won't do anything.

-I could get a fine.

-It's a good job I'm working then.

0:04:270:04:32

What if they involve the social, eh? Do you want to go back to that home?

0:04:320:04:36

-Look, all right, Pops. Just chillax, all right? See you later.

-Lo...

0:04:360:04:39

-KNOCK ON DOOR

-So, this is where she keeps you locked up then, is it?

0:04:470:04:51

Do you want something?

0:04:510:04:53

I've been doing a bit of digging.

0:04:530:04:56

The bloke who died in the fire.

0:04:560:04:58

Borrowed Lauren's laptop, spent half the night on the internet.

0:04:580:05:02

-I can deal with it.

-Don't worry, I cleared all my search history and everything.

0:05:020:05:07

-Been a proper little Columbo. Not that Columbo had a laptop.

-Yeah, I said I can deal with it.

0:05:070:05:11

And there's nothing. His only relatives are long dead.

0:05:110:05:15

So whoever's sniffing round, it's nothing to do with him.

0:05:150:05:18

It's not about revenge or anything. So, it's going to be OK.

0:05:180:05:21

You think this is over, eh? You don't know nothing.

0:05:210:05:23

-I'm trying to help you here.

-Yeah, well, I don't need it, all right.

0:05:230:05:27

-You confided in me, remember? You chose to tell me.

-Yeah. And that was a mistake.

0:05:270:05:32

Come on, Phil.

0:05:320:05:34

You can go now.

0:05:350:05:36

I said...you can go.

0:05:380:05:41

-He nicked them two weeks early!

-What do you want him to do?

0:05:460:05:49

-Stick them in the ground and hope they grow again?

-I should open up.

0:05:490:05:52

-We're all in this together. It's only morning.

-No-one buys trees in November.

0:05:520:05:55

-They'll be inside a vacuum by Christmas.

-Shut up, you big girl!

0:05:550:05:59

What are you, a half-Moon? Sliver of the Moon? Moon by night? Come on!

0:05:590:06:02

Oh, hello, Patrick. You ain't been home, have you? You was wearing that last night.

0:06:020:06:07

-A gentleman never divulges.

-Oh, gentleman my elbow!

0:06:070:06:10

-Can't go wrong with a bacon roll.

-Patrick's getting his strength back.

-Oh, yeah?

0:06:110:06:15

-Spot of the extracurriculars, eh?

-Come on. A man's business is his business, all right?

0:06:150:06:20

You're just jealous that he's getting some.

0:06:200:06:22

Christmas trees in November?

0:06:260:06:27

See? I told you Alfie, didn't I?

0:06:270:06:31

You said the same about the Dutch Santas.

0:06:310:06:33

It's all about the branding.

0:06:330:06:35

I've told you, no story, no swans.

0:06:350:06:40

But I have been known to do a nice fried hack.

0:06:400:06:43

I hope Janine don't like her kneecaps.

0:06:430:06:46

Black coffee. Strong, please. Hello. You all right?

0:06:470:06:51

Have you still got that flu?

0:06:510:06:53

Er, yeah. Well, it's been a busy morning.

0:06:530:06:56

-You look rough, Tan. Are you sleeping all right?

-Bet you're not.

-Shh!

0:06:560:07:01

Why do we have to keep it so secret?

0:07:010:07:03

I want to shout it from the rooftops.

0:07:030:07:05

Except Zainab would be pushing you off them.

0:07:050:07:08

You know, for the first time in ages,

0:07:080:07:10

-I think I could be really happy.

-Two sugars.

0:07:100:07:12

-Not for me, Shirley.

-It wasn't a question.

0:07:120:07:15

Er...

0:07:150:07:16

Tanya.

0:07:160:07:18

I'd better make a move.

0:07:190:07:21

-I thought you were busy.

-I am.

0:07:220:07:26

What about your coffee?

0:07:260:07:29

Coffee, two sugars.

0:07:290:07:31

-I wanted a sandwich.

-Yeah, and I've made you a coffee.

0:07:310:07:33

-Someone's got her face on upside down.

-Why don't you crawl back down the drain that you come out of?

0:07:330:07:38

Must be hard. Phil getting all those photos and stuff.

0:07:380:07:42

Cheese and tomato, please.

0:07:450:07:47

Yeah, Jane'll serve you. Here, Jane, congratulations. You've just passed the interview.

0:07:470:07:52

Oi.

0:07:530:07:55

Oi!

0:07:550:07:58

I'm talking to you.

0:07:580:07:59

You think you're the only one with his secrets?

0:07:590:08:02

You going to pay for that coffee?

0:08:020:08:04

You don't even know what those photos are about, do ya?

0:08:060:08:09

What's she on about?

0:08:140:08:16

Those photos and the crank calls.

0:08:160:08:19

They're all part of the same game.

0:08:190:08:22

Yeah, well, maybe they're just kids.

0:08:220:08:24

Your dad thinks there's someone out to get him.

0:08:240:08:27

There's always someone out to get him.

0:08:270:08:29

It's different this time, Ben.

0:08:290:08:31

Why? Who do you reckon it is?

0:08:310:08:34

I don't know. But I will find out.

0:08:340:08:38

-There we go.

-Non-drop guaranteed?

0:08:400:08:42

Oi, oi, oi, 110% guaranteed, cupcake, thank you!

0:08:420:08:46

You know what, I reckon if I take one off you, I can turn a nice little profit.

0:08:460:08:50

-Oooh!

-Come on, even Alfie ain't doing that!

-Oi, you, shtoom.

0:08:500:08:55

-Well, you'd better watch and learn then.

-See? Watch and learn.

0:08:550:08:58

-All right, Rose, darling?

-Hiya. Patrick.

-Rose.

0:08:580:09:03

You are so busted!

0:09:030:09:05

She just wouldn't stay away from me, man.

0:09:050:09:07

You randy old goat, you.

0:09:070:09:09

Can't we just raise the tone a little bit, yeah?

0:09:090:09:12

Oh, someone's been a dirty stop-out.

0:09:120:09:14

-A tenner says I can get more than I'm paying for it.

-Thank you, done.

0:09:180:09:21

Come on, muscles, help the lady. Come on, chop chop, good lad.

0:09:210:09:25

-Come on, biceps will help you.

-All right, all right.

0:09:270:09:30

Good boy.

0:09:300:09:32

Nice?

0:09:320:09:34

-You all right?

-Yeah, why shouldn't I be?

0:09:340:09:36

Well, the last time I saw you...

0:09:360:09:38

I was drunk. Don't know where my head is half the time.

0:09:380:09:41

Kat? Look, I don't mean to pry...

0:09:450:09:48

but last night you said you'd ruined everything.

0:09:480:09:51

And I'm guessing that you weren't talking about the dinner.

0:09:510:09:54

The other week. Me and this bloke. It was only one night.

0:09:550:10:01

In fact it wasn't even a night.

0:10:010:10:03

Why?

0:10:030:10:05

I don't know why. There's never a why.

0:10:050:10:07

What, you're not happy?

0:10:080:10:10

Just, give me something good and I mess it up.

0:10:100:10:13

Look, you ain't messed nothing up, yeah?

0:10:140:10:16

You've got a roof over your head,

0:10:160:10:18

little tiger man here, eating his way through your fridge.

0:10:180:10:22

-You scared Alfie's going to find out?

-He knows. I told him.

0:10:260:10:30

And he ain't kicked you out?

0:10:300:10:32

Mate, the few men I've had, they'd have kicked me to the kerb, long time.

0:10:330:10:37

Well, Alfie ain't like that.

0:10:370:10:39

Cos he gets it. He understands.

0:10:390:10:42

You are a lucky lady.

0:10:420:10:43

He's dealing with it.

0:10:430:10:44

And if I do it again, he'll deal with that and all.

0:10:440:10:47

And I will do it again. Cos that's what I do.

0:10:470:10:49

I'll just rip his heart out, again and again.

0:10:490:10:51

-No, but you won't though.

-But I will though. And he knows it, but he just won't say it.

0:10:510:10:55

You want me to slap that dumb face of yours? He loves you.

0:10:550:10:59

Yeah, I know. But it makes no difference.

0:10:590:11:01

Oh, don't talk rubbish.

0:11:010:11:02

A leopard never changes its spots.

0:11:020:11:05

Everyone deserves a second chance.

0:11:120:11:15

I've had a second chance.

0:11:150:11:17

Well, third then, whatever. Listen, you've got a good man.

0:11:170:11:21

And he loves you.

0:11:210:11:23

So stop all of this moaning and self-pity

0:11:230:11:25

and put on your lip gloss and get on with loving him back.

0:11:250:11:28

She's not given you my hours?

0:11:310:11:34

I think she's giving me her own hours.

0:11:340:11:36

Don't get me wrong, it's nice to have you back.

0:11:360:11:39

-you know, what with Bianca and Ricky away.

-Don't worry, Carol.

0:11:390:11:42

She took one look at that frying pan and threw in the towel.

0:11:420:11:45

Well, the apron.

0:11:450:11:46

Oi, you, here.

0:11:490:11:51

I wondered when you'd show your face.

0:11:530:11:55

-Auntie Carol.

-I thought you were going to stop drinking.

0:11:550:11:59

Just having a laugh.

0:11:590:12:00

Are you still worried about her, Lauren?

0:12:000:12:03

Oi, oi.

0:12:090:12:10

-All right? Thank you.

-That's all right.

0:12:100:12:14

Ain't you going to stay and help me decorate it?

0:12:140:12:17

What you going to hang on it? Chips? You all right, Bill?

0:12:170:12:21

All right?

0:12:210:12:22

-Enjoy your tree.

-Thank you.

0:12:240:12:27

What?

0:12:300:12:31

Don't you think he's a bit old?

0:12:310:12:33

Ew, Pops, he was just dropping off the tree.

0:12:330:12:35

Bit hot in here for one of them, ain't it?

0:12:350:12:38

-Thought you were going to go to school.

-Well, I took a shift here. We can't all have breaks, you know.

0:12:380:12:44

-You're a bright girl, Lola.

-I hate school, you know that.

0:12:450:12:48

I just don't want you wasting your life on boys and rubbish jobs.

0:12:480:12:51

-This ain't a rubbish job.

-I'm supposed to be bringing you up properly.

0:12:510:12:55

I don't need bringing up.

0:12:550:12:56

I just...

0:12:560:12:58

I just think you could do so much better for yourself.

0:12:580:13:01

PHONE RINGS

0:13:070:13:09

Hello? Hello?!

0:13:090:13:11

Same crank again.

0:13:130:13:15

Fifth time today.

0:13:150:13:16

I know who's doing it. All of it.

0:13:160:13:19

Oh, hello.

0:13:240:13:27

I just saw Lauren.

0:13:270:13:29

-Rainie?!

-It makes sense?

-No, it don't.

0:13:310:13:33

If she thinks she's got something over you, she might think she can have you.

0:13:330:13:37

-Stop being paranoid. It ain't Rainie.

-How does she know about the photos?

0:13:370:13:40

It ain't Rainie.

0:13:400:13:41

-If it ain't her doing it, how come she knows everything about it?

-Because I told her!

0:13:410:13:46

Told her what?

0:13:460:13:47

What did you tell her, Phil?

0:13:490:13:51

You were out of control.

0:13:510:13:53

No, I wasn't.

0:13:530:13:54

-You were off your heads, both of you!

-Oh, don't be ridiculous, Carol.

0:13:540:13:58

She can't even remember what she got up to. Does she do that often?

0:13:580:14:01

-Er, well, no. I don't think so.

-She needs a better role model than that, Tanya.

0:14:010:14:05

-Look, Carol, we were just having a bit of fun, that's all.

-Yeah? Well, she doesn't look that happy now.

0:14:050:14:10

Has she said something to you?

0:14:100:14:12

Why? What is it you think she might've said?

0:14:150:14:18

Nothing, I just... Look, Carol, no offence,

0:14:200:14:22

-but you sticking your nose in, it's not really...

-I'm just worried about her drinking.

0:14:220:14:26

Well, she's not Billie! She's...

0:14:260:14:28

I'm so sorry.

0:14:310:14:33

I'm not on a mission. I am just worried about you. All of you.

0:14:350:14:38

-Well, I don't know why.

-Because you're family.

0:14:380:14:41

And you look exhausted.

0:14:410:14:43

It's just that Oscar's not sleeping well.

0:14:430:14:46

I've been there. I know what it's like. Bringing up kids on your own.

0:14:460:14:49

-I'm sorry, I'm just a bit busy...

-Doing everything yourself. You know, your sister up and down.

0:14:490:14:54

And I know... I know you're missing Max.

0:14:540:14:56

There's something else, though, isn't there?

0:15:030:15:05

Everything OK?

0:15:110:15:12

Yeah.

0:15:140:15:15

Er, yeah, Carol was just...just going, so... Thanks for popping in.

0:15:150:15:20

I know where you are.

0:15:220:15:23

-See ya.

-See ya.

0:15:270:15:29

What?

0:15:330:15:35

What?

0:15:360:15:38

It wasn't meant to happen. It was an accident!

0:15:410:15:44

Yeah, so you keep saying.

0:15:440:15:46

I didn't know that he was in there, did I?

0:15:460:15:50

Yeah, well, it ain't any of my business.

0:15:500:15:53

The insurance scam, the fire.

0:15:530:15:54

What, do you think I don't know who you are?

0:15:540:15:57

What you're capable of doing?

0:15:570:15:59

Do you think you could do anything that would shock me?

0:15:590:16:03

So why you giving me daggers then?

0:16:030:16:05

Because you told her.

0:16:050:16:06

You told that little crackhead and not me.

0:16:080:16:11

And you know what? You didn't even have to. She already knew.

0:16:120:16:16

That's why she's doing all this. Mess with your head.

0:16:160:16:20

Get straight in there.

0:16:200:16:22

Come on, you lucky people, get your Christmas trees.

0:16:240:16:27

Hello, how are you, my friend? Fancy a Christmas tree?

0:16:270:16:30

-You buy the trunk and we'll throw in the needles.

-It's a bit early.

-That's why they're guaranteed.

0:16:300:16:35

-Make a statement. Buy a couple, yeah?

-You can't beat a guarantee.

0:16:350:16:38

If it don't last, chop it up and have it as a manger.

0:16:380:16:40

One for the church, one for home. Special offer today - two trees for the price of one. Vicars only.

0:16:400:16:46

-Oi! 30 minutes.

-What?

0:16:460:16:48

30 minutes, I've been vacuuming. They're all in the batter.

0:16:480:16:51

That ain't really, are they?

0:16:510:16:53

-110% guaranteed.

-Yes, yeah.

-I think that means I get my money back.

0:16:530:16:57

Yeah, all right, all right. Here you are, quick.

0:16:570:16:59

You're killing me here, sweetheart.

0:16:590:17:01

-And 10%.

-You're killing me here!

-And my compensation.

-Compensation? For what?

0:17:010:17:05

-Do you want me to tell the whole market these are dodgy?

-OK, all right, thank you, Lola. Thank you.

0:17:050:17:11

Someone could have choked on one of those needles.

0:17:110:17:13

Oh, and my bet?

0:17:130:17:15

Thank you.

0:17:200:17:21

Boys.

0:17:210:17:23

Thank you, Billy. Brilliant.

0:17:270:17:31

110%

0:17:330:17:34

-He was totally humiliated!

-I didn't know he'd be here, did I?

0:17:340:17:37

-Where have you been hiding?

-I've been cleaning!

0:17:370:17:40

A man of God and you're parading your fancy man in front of him.

0:17:400:17:43

-He's not my fancy man.

-Hit and run merchant.

0:17:430:17:45

That poor man, comes all the way out of his way to see you

0:17:460:17:50

and you cast him aside like a pair of old socks.

0:17:500:17:53

I didn't cast him aside.

0:17:530:17:55

Oh, you was letting him down gently, was you?

0:17:550:17:57

I wasn't really seeing him, was I?

0:17:570:17:59

Under my roof!

0:17:590:18:02

Come on, she's a tramp.

0:18:020:18:03

-Cora Cross, wash your mouth out.

-I'm on your side!

0:18:030:18:06

This is my house. If anybody is going to question my sister's morality, it is me.

0:18:060:18:11

The Vicar is a respectable man.

0:18:110:18:13

You're just jealous.

0:18:130:18:15

How dare you!

0:18:150:18:16

I saw you dancing around him with your nightie on.

0:18:160:18:20

-I wasn't born yesterday.

-Take that back. I am a married woman.

0:18:200:18:24

She'll be after Jim an' all, if you're not careful!

0:18:240:18:27

Don't laugh at me. This is my own house!

0:18:270:18:30

Don't laugh at me in my own house!

0:18:300:18:33

Thought we could have a little chat.

0:18:420:18:44

Oh, look, they're all going to do this. What's the point?

0:18:450:18:48

-I don't know why I bother, really.

-Come on, they're only trees.

0:18:480:18:51

-We can sell them as firewood or something.

-Christmas logs.

0:18:510:18:54

Say they're from Lapland. Perfect for sleighs. Touched by elves.

0:18:540:18:59

Alfie, this is about the trees, innit?

0:19:000:19:03

Right lads. Think modern. Think style. Think Gok Wan. Think zhooshy.

0:19:040:19:09

Get some silver paint. We are going to spray these babies! Come on, boys, chop chop. Let's go.

0:19:090:19:13

I thought you would've known by now?

0:19:150:19:17

-You really are threatened, aren't you?

-Look, when I say stay away...

-You think I still want him?

0:19:170:19:21

I was bored. I was just winding you up.

0:19:210:19:23

I'm not going to tell anyone, am I? He was the one who chose to tell me.

0:19:230:19:27

The photos. The calls. They stop now.

0:19:270:19:30

It ain't me!

0:19:300:19:32

-The threats. The game's over, OK?

-Get your dirty hands off her.

0:19:320:19:35

You've got it so wrong, Shirl!

0:19:350:19:37

-I mean it. Five seconds and I'm calling the police.

-This is between me and her.

0:19:370:19:40

-I haven't a clue what's gone on...

-Just a misunderstanding.

0:19:400:19:43

..but this is my house and I've got a three year old here

0:19:430:19:46

-so find yourself another playground to fight in.

-I ain't going.

0:19:460:19:49

-You sure about that?

-This is nothing to do with you.

-If it's about my daughters...

0:19:490:19:54

then it's about me.

0:19:540:19:55

Just get out.

0:19:580:20:01

Never could fight your own battles, could you?

0:20:010:20:04

Nan!

0:20:060:20:07

Oh, look, five against one. Some people might say that's cheating.

0:20:070:20:12

-What's she doing here?

-She's just going.

-I ain't going anywhere.

-Now, this is my house. Mine!

0:20:120:20:17

That's my sister and my family. And YOU are a bully. And I don't do bullies.

0:20:170:20:22

Never have, never will. So if you think for a second - just one second -

0:20:220:20:26

that you can come barging in here and threaten any of us, throwing your weight around,

0:20:260:20:31

and playing your stupid little games, then you can think again.

0:20:310:20:34

Cos, believe me, right now, you do not want to push me.

0:20:340:20:37

This...

0:20:430:20:45

ends now. OK?

0:20:450:20:48

Thank you.

0:21:030:21:04

Put the kettle on, shall I?

0:21:060:21:08

She's chucked you out then?

0:21:080:21:11

You've got a week, Mum. And then you're gone.

0:21:130:21:16

-Fancy throwing her out like that.

-That woman was born in a sewer.

0:21:230:21:27

But it's me you're mad at. It's me that you're jealous of.

0:21:270:21:31

-I told you, I'm no such thing.

-I've seen the way you look at him.

0:21:310:21:34

Rose Elizabeth, you are a lady of easy virtue.

0:21:340:21:37

Do not tar the rest of us with your mucky brush.

0:21:370:21:40

If you can't forgive me for being happier than you,

0:21:400:21:44

I've only got one choice to make.

0:21:440:21:46

I've got to leave.

0:21:460:21:48

You know where the door is.

0:21:480:21:50

There you go. Cheers, darling.

0:21:520:21:55

-You all right? You been busy?

-You know me, darling. Busy busy.

0:21:560:22:01

-Ain't hardly seen you all day.

-That's why I'm back here now, make up for it.

0:22:010:22:05

You look fantastic. Kim, my little pumpkin,

0:22:050:22:07

can I get you something to tickle this with? And while I'm tickling you,

0:22:070:22:10

how do you fancy buying an exclusive silver Christmas tree?

0:22:100:22:13

-That was clever, that was.

-I was just having a laugh.

0:22:140:22:17

No, I mean it, though. You're a clever girl.

0:22:170:22:20

Bit more school, you know, you could go places.

0:22:220:22:24

You're just scared cos the teacher told you off.

0:22:240:22:27

I'm just trying to do the right thing.

0:22:270:22:30

I don't want to risk losing you again.

0:22:300:22:33

All right, I'll go back.

0:22:330:22:35

You mean that?

0:22:350:22:36

Trust me. I'm a good girl.

0:22:360:22:40

You are.

0:22:420:22:44

You got the purple one?

0:22:550:22:57

-It's just here.

-Oh, OK.

0:22:570:23:00

This one doesn't work.

0:23:000:23:01

Use that blue. There you go, try that one again.

0:23:010:23:05

Yes, it does.

0:23:050:23:06

-What had you done to her then?

-It was...

0:23:060:23:10

..silly.

0:23:110:23:13

So why did Grandma Dot throw you out?

0:23:270:23:30

Long story, darling.

0:23:300:23:32

-DOORBELL RINGS

-I'll get it.

0:23:320:23:35

Shirley told me. You know, about the calls.

0:23:530:23:57

And the photos and all that other stuff.

0:23:570:23:59

It's... It's nothing to worry about, all right?

0:23:590:24:03

-She said you think someone's out to get you.

-No-one's going to get anyone.

0:24:030:24:07

It ain't about... well, last week, is it?

0:24:080:24:12

Ben, it ain't about you, all right?

0:24:120:24:15

-And I'm sorting it.

-It's sorted.

0:24:150:24:17

Anything else?

0:24:200:24:21

No.

0:24:220:24:23

What have you done?

0:24:290:24:30

-That little skank ain't going to bother us again.

-I told you not to involved.

-We just had a little chat.

0:24:300:24:35

Too much time's passed. There's no witness, no evidence.

0:24:350:24:38

No-one's going to get us, Phil.

0:24:400:24:42

You and me...we're invincible.

0:24:430:24:46

It's over.

0:24:470:24:49

-RECORDING OF PHIL'S VOICE:

-'Do you seriously think I'm going to risk that again?'

0:24:580:25:02

-'You gave them to Kevin.'

-'Yeah, and look how he ended up.

0:25:020:25:05

'No more stolen cars, no more cut-and-shuts.

0:25:050:25:07

'What do you want to do? Get somebody else killed?

0:25:070:25:10

RECORDING PLAYS OVER AND OVER

0:25:100:25:13

-They called this afternoon.

-This isn't a good time.

0:25:160:25:21

-Nan and me thought we'd put some dinner on.

-Yeah, great. In a while, yeah?

0:25:220:25:26

-She's doing really great. Isn't she?

-I'm just checking in.

0:25:270:25:32

Why don't you give us five minutes?

0:25:340:25:37

-This is my decision.

-I don't think you understand.

-I understand everything.

0:25:430:25:47

-Go back to the hospital.

-What gives you the right to push everyone around?

0:25:470:25:50

You haven't been to a single radiotherapy or chemo session for the last two weeks.

0:25:500:25:55

Why, Tanya? Why have you stopped your treatment?

0:25:550:25:59

I'm still moving out.

0:26:040:26:07

Good.

0:26:070:26:08

Oh, don't forget your make-up.

0:26:110:26:14

It's all over the bathroom.

0:26:140:26:16

Oh, I thought I couldn't have those shoes cos you were skint?

0:26:280:26:30

That's it, there.

0:26:300:26:31

Lovely, innit, eh? All of us here together.

0:26:320:26:35

You do know it's November?

0:26:350:26:37

And it's SO tacky.

0:26:370:26:38

-You hate tacky.

-No, it's lovely.

0:26:380:26:40

You going to put lights on the front of the house as well?

0:26:400:26:43

Yep, all over it. Reindeer on the roof.

0:26:430:26:46

One of them great, big blow-up snowmen. The works.

0:26:460:26:48

When's it going to be back on?

0:26:510:26:53

You know what, I'll find someone else to pick Amy up.

0:26:530:26:56

-Jack, I'll have her.

-No.

0:26:560:26:58

No, we set up ground rules.

0:26:580:27:00

I'll take her to the park. She'll love it.

0:27:000:27:02

No, I'll find someone else. Responsible.

0:27:020:27:06

Yes, that's it. That's it. There's another one in there, too.

0:27:100:27:13

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:27:130:27:14

I'll get it.

0:27:140:27:16

-Abs, I said there's one under the stairs...

-I've got school.

0:27:160:27:19

It's not like it's Christmas tomorrow.

0:27:190:27:21

You know what daughters are like. Hormones.

0:27:300:27:33

I've arranged you an urgent appointment this afternoon.

0:27:330:27:36

-Right, well I'm busy this afternoon.

-Tanya...

0:27:360:27:39

I had to call in a favour.

0:27:390:27:41

So uncall it.

0:27:410:27:43

I'll ring 'em later.

0:27:440:27:46

Twice in two days?

0:27:520:27:54

Yeah, Dr Khan was just wondering if I had any work at the salon for Afia, that's all.

0:27:540:27:59

So he's out looking for work for his daughter

0:27:590:28:01

when he should be at the surgery?

0:28:010:28:04

No wonder the NHS is in such a state.

0:28:050:28:08

Come on, it'll only be an hour. The playgroup's got a power cut.

0:28:120:28:16

-I'm working! And I'm going out.

-You won't know she's here.

0:28:160:28:19

-Why not get her yourself?

-I'll tell them you'll be there in two minutes.

-Jack!

0:28:190:28:22

All right, Abs?

0:28:220:28:24

What do you want?

0:28:240:28:26

-Did you bring any cash with you?

-I'm meant to be at school.

0:28:260:28:29

Whose is...? Is that...?

0:28:330:28:35

Lola, are you pregnant?!

0:28:350:28:37

Abi, I'll need you to look after Amy for me in a few minutes, yeah?

0:28:370:28:40

No, I'm meant to be at school!

0:28:400:28:43

You better have brought some cash with you,

0:28:430:28:46

because I am starving.

0:28:460:28:47

Today's a three.

0:28:550:28:57

If this is about me and Alfie, we're fine.

0:29:190:29:22

We're just getting stressed out about Christmas, that's all.

0:29:260:29:30

You don't have to work, you know. Go back to bed if you want.

0:29:320:29:36

No.

0:29:370:29:38

Today, I'll beat it.

0:29:400:29:43

I'll be OK.

0:29:430:29:44

Not going in today?

0:29:540:29:56

The salon can run itself.

0:29:560:29:58

Did Doctor Khan really come round about his daughter?

0:29:580:30:01

-Yeah.

-Only you look like Death warmed up.

0:30:010:30:04

Well, I'm just tired, Mum, that's all.

0:30:040:30:08

You keep wiping them plates, you'll wipe the print off.

0:30:080:30:11

Put the cloth down.

0:30:110:30:12

Mum, honestly. I'm fine!

0:30:120:30:14

This "flu" of yours.

0:30:160:30:18

Well, there's been a lot going round, hasn't there?

0:30:180:30:20

Only it ain't flu, though, is it?

0:30:200:30:23

What, are you a doctor now, or...?

0:30:230:30:25

How much did you have to drink last night?

0:30:250:30:28

-That's none of your business, Mum!

-Come on, I've seen it all before with Rainie.

0:30:280:30:32

I know a drink problem when I see one.

0:30:320:30:35

Hello! Pot? Kettle?

0:30:350:30:36

Thought about where you're going to live yet?

0:30:380:30:40

-Right, change the subject.

-I said a week. Now it's six days.

0:30:400:30:43

-Nobody said it was easy, being on your own.

-I'm not joking.

0:30:430:30:46

Don't take it out on me. I'm trying.

0:30:460:30:49

You've got until the end of the week. Then you're gone.

0:30:490:30:52

Max, Greg, me.

0:30:520:30:55

You keep pushing everyone away, Tanya,

0:30:550:30:58

and one day there's going to be no-one left to push.

0:30:580:31:01

I don't have any extra hours, Rose.

0:31:070:31:09

Just another morning a week, Dr Khan?

0:31:090:31:12

-My little face, to brighten up your day?

-I'm sorry.

0:31:120:31:14

You see, I'm thinking of getting my own place,

0:31:140:31:17

-and London is so expensive.

-Rose, the work's not there.

0:31:170:31:20

And you're sure you're OK?

0:31:280:31:30

Scabs, it's just a baby.

0:31:300:31:32

-Coffee to take away?

-Yeah, yeah, please.

0:31:340:31:36

Um, he's going to find out.

0:31:400:31:43

Yeah, he can find out when I've finished my drink.

0:31:430:31:46

Hello, my baby.

0:31:480:31:51

How are you? Hello.

0:31:510:31:54

Auntie Carol said Uncle Jack said that...

0:31:540:31:56

She's my daughter, Abi.

0:31:560:31:58

Yeah. But if he finds out, then...

0:31:580:32:00

I'm not going to tell him, am I?

0:32:000:32:02

She IS her mum.

0:32:030:32:05

Come here, baby. Come to Mummy.

0:32:120:32:15

Oh, hello.

0:32:150:32:16

It's funny, I don't remember school looking like this.

0:32:190:32:22

Starts late today.

0:32:220:32:23

Staff training.

0:32:230:32:25

Lo, you promised me.

0:32:270:32:29

Yeah, and I'm going to go.

0:32:290:32:31

Bye, then.

0:32:320:32:34

All right.

0:32:340:32:35

Cheers, love.

0:32:460:32:48

How am I supposed to serve meals?

0:32:480:32:50

Lister said there was too many on the pavement.

0:32:500:32:52

He doesn't have to fight through a forest with a Sausage Surprise!

0:32:520:32:56

We're here to help you, aren't we? Me and Alfie. Together.

0:32:560:32:59

Yeah, see? Jean, why don't you go and have a lie down, yeah? Go on.

0:32:590:33:02

Why does everybody want me to lie down?

0:33:020:33:05

I don't want to lie down. If I wanted to lie down, I'd go and lie down

0:33:050:33:08

but I don't want to lie down because I'm trying to do a job

0:33:080:33:11

and I'd be able to do my job if I didn't have half of Epping Forest in the way!

0:33:110:33:15

We've run out of milk. I'm going to the shop.

0:33:150:33:18

-Jean, get me a scratchcard, will you?

-That is NOT in my job description.

0:33:180:33:21

Is it too early for a vodka?

0:33:210:33:23

No! It's never too early for a vodka.

0:33:230:33:27

You better get me one, while you're at it.

0:33:270:33:29

Of course! Why don't I get everyone a scratchcard?

0:33:290:33:32

Scratchcards!

0:33:320:33:33

Scratchcard, Alfie?

0:33:330:33:35

Scratchcard, Kat? I could put some mash potato on the top.

0:33:350:33:37

Little bit of gravy?

0:33:370:33:39

They're white, Alfie. I find that very, very scary.

0:33:390:33:42

ROXY LAUGHS

0:33:490:33:51

Look, I think maybe you should just...

0:33:530:33:55

OK, all right, OK, I'm going.

0:33:570:33:59

Oi, hand her over.

0:34:040:34:07

-Jack...

-Auntie Carol just asked me to help out.

0:34:070:34:10

I said, give her back. Come here.

0:34:100:34:13

All right?

0:34:130:34:14

What were you thinking?

0:34:140:34:17

-It's not Abi's fault.

-Yeah?

0:34:170:34:19

-I ask you to do one thing.

-She's just helping me out, OK?

0:34:190:34:21

-She can't stop who comes into the cafe.

-One little thing.

0:34:210:34:24

Come on, darling, I think that playgroup's open again now.

0:34:240:34:28

-Say bye.

-Bye.

-Bye, Daddy.

0:34:280:34:31

-Don't blame Abi. It was me, OK?

-Get out of my sight.

-She's my daughter!

0:34:320:34:36

Yeah? You should've noticed months ago.

0:34:360:34:38

-You've got no right to stop me seeing her.

-Yeah?

0:34:380:34:40

I'll see you in court.

0:34:400:34:42

That's right. Passing her round anyone that'll have her?

0:34:420:34:44

Cos that's really being responsible, isn't it?

0:34:440:34:48

You happy now?

0:34:500:34:52

-She was trying to help YOU!

-Yeah? I really trusted you, Abi.

0:34:520:34:55

You've let me down, ain't ya?

0:34:550:34:57

Abi!

0:35:020:35:03

But it says you've got vacancies at the B&B.

0:35:090:35:12

I forgot to flip it round, honey, sorry.

0:35:120:35:14

-Is anybody working?

-Dee's sick today, sugar lump. So you got me instead.

0:35:140:35:17

You shouldn't advertise if you've got no vacancies.

0:35:170:35:20

Oh, what, you and your sister fallen out? Me and Denise? All the time.

0:35:200:35:23

Could I pay for this milk, please? I have customers.

0:35:230:35:26

Yes, my love, you can.

0:35:260:35:27

All right.

0:35:270:35:29

That's it, Delia?

0:35:290:35:31

A scratchcard for Mo.

0:35:310:35:34

And a scratchcard for Mrs Cross.

0:35:340:35:35

I just needed some space.

0:35:350:35:37

How about one for you as well, Jean?

0:35:370:35:39

-I've got the lucky touch, lucky fingers.

-OK, OK!

0:35:390:35:42

OK, that's three pounds for the scratchcards. Thank you.

0:35:420:35:47

So, all this because of you and Pops?

0:35:470:35:50

Dot doesn't approve of pensioner jiggy?

0:35:500:35:53

Just one room for a couple of nights.

0:35:530:35:56

I can do you a scratchcard.

0:35:570:35:59

Oh, look, do you remember when you brought these home from playgroup?

0:36:030:36:07

Well, you probably don't.

0:36:070:36:08

There was more glitter on your face than there was on the cones.

0:36:080:36:12

What was Nan asking you?

0:36:120:36:13

She thinks I've got a drink problem.

0:36:130:36:15

Maybe...

0:36:160:36:17

Maybe you should tell her.

0:36:190:36:21

What, and have her tell half the Square?

0:36:210:36:23

But if she thinks that something's wrong...

0:36:230:36:25

No, Lauren, I don't need her. I've got you, haven't I?

0:36:250:36:30

Do you still speak to Siobhan?

0:36:370:36:39

Siobhan?

0:36:390:36:41

Yeah, Siobhan, she's doing well. Really well, yeah. She's going to go travelling.

0:36:410:36:45

We should do that when you finish.

0:36:450:36:47

Yeah. What like, Thelma and Louise? We just get in a car and go.

0:36:470:36:50

See, I knew we'd beat this.

0:36:500:36:53

My mum, the fighter. Yeah.

0:36:530:36:56

Yeah, it's going well. Really well.

0:36:560:36:58

Yeah, life's good, innit?

0:36:580:37:00

Oh, look.

0:37:010:37:02

Is there no school today?

0:37:170:37:19

Look, what I said... I'm sorry.

0:37:240:37:27

All right? It's just me and Roxy. It's hard.

0:37:270:37:30

It's not always to do with you, you know?

0:37:300:37:33

Yeah, well, I shouldn't have snapped at you.

0:37:330:37:36

You're a good kid, Abi.

0:37:360:37:37

It's all one big mess.

0:37:390:37:41

Mum's acting weird and she won't say what's wrong

0:37:420:37:45

and she thinks that I don't know but I know something's up, I'm not stupid.

0:37:450:37:49

Jay's always busy and Lauren...

0:37:500:37:53

all she does is go out drinking.

0:37:530:37:55

And Nan's been chucked out by Grandma Dot but Mum don't want her round

0:37:570:38:02

and Auntie Rainie's in some sort of trouble with Shirley, and Dad...

0:38:020:38:07

Dad's just disappeared.

0:38:070:38:09

And I'm just in the middle of it.

0:38:110:38:14

Invisible.

0:38:140:38:16

Abs, sweetheart.

0:38:160:38:19

My whole family.

0:38:200:38:21

Everything's falling apart.

0:38:220:38:24

Come here. Come here.

0:38:270:38:29

It's all right.

0:38:320:38:34

Jean, sweetheart, do us another couple of shepherd's pies?

0:38:380:38:41

Just a bit more shepherd this time, all right?

0:38:410:38:44

Hello? Jean?

0:38:440:38:47

I've won £8,000.

0:38:480:38:50

What?

0:38:510:38:52

-Carol put you up to this, did she?

-Tanya...

-Or was it my mum?

0:39:000:39:04

-No, I just saw Abi.

-Oh, Abi. Great(!)

0:39:040:39:06

She's worried you're not coping.

0:39:060:39:08

Sorry, Max leaves and nobody worries.

0:39:080:39:12

Nobody bothers to help. Nobody says anything.

0:39:120:39:14

-Yeah well, that's not true.

-I get drunk ONE night

0:39:140:39:17

and you're all running about like I'm some sort of charity case.

0:39:170:39:20

-Look, I know this must be hard for you.

-Do you?

0:39:200:39:22

Do you, Jack?

0:39:220:39:24

Why, cos I'm bringing up three kids on my own?

0:39:240:39:27

At least I still see my kids. All of them.

0:39:270:39:29

This isn't about me, is it?

0:39:290:39:31

Yeah, it's always about you.

0:39:310:39:33

What were you thinking, taking Roxy's kid off her?

0:39:330:39:35

What's Ronnie got to say about this?

0:39:350:39:37

You stopping her own sister from seeing her daughter.

0:39:370:39:40

-Have you got any idea what that feels like, Jack?

-Yeah.

0:39:400:39:43

Terrified you'll never see your kids again?

0:39:430:39:45

-You want to drop it?

-You've just remembered you've got a daughter!

0:39:450:39:48

All those months, "Oh, my baby's dead."

0:39:480:39:50

All along you had a little girl, did you think about her? Did you bother? No.

0:39:500:39:54

Yeah, well, that ain't fair, is it?

0:39:540:39:56

-What about the rest of your kids, eh?

-Tan, what's going on? This ain't you.

0:39:560:39:59

-Your other kids fled the country - that'll go down well in court(!)

-What's going on?

0:39:590:40:03

Your wife's banged up for child snatching.

0:40:030:40:06

-Oi, calm down.

-I'd make the most of my time with Amy.

0:40:060:40:08

Another court hearing coming up. Get ready to say goodbye.

0:40:080:40:12

-That's none of your business!

-No?

0:40:120:40:14

Well, my business seems to be everyone else's business round here.

0:40:140:40:17

It seems fair it works both ways.

0:40:170:40:19

Shall I spell this out in words of one syllable for you?

0:40:190:40:22

Make it easy for you, shall I?

0:40:220:40:24

I. Am. Fine!

0:40:240:40:26

Tell you what, Jean, if anyone deserves it, darling...

0:40:320:40:35

It's me. She ain't the one who's homeless, is she?

0:40:350:40:38

Cora, can we let it go, sweetheart? You want some bubbles, yeah?

0:40:380:40:41

-Bubbles?

-If I hadn't asked for one, you'd've won nothing!

0:40:410:40:44

Well, actually it was more Kim...

0:40:440:40:45

-Mo, bubbles, darlin'?

-I'd have shared it!

-Right(!)

0:40:450:40:48

-No, you wouldn't!

-Maybe I should share it.

0:40:480:40:50

-You ain't sharing nothing.

-No, keep it. Or you'll have us to answer to.

0:40:500:40:53

-Whose side are you on?

-She bought it.

-She won the money.

0:40:530:40:56

-End of story.

-Thank you.

0:40:560:40:58

-You had no right!

-She's 15.

-I remember. I was there.

-She's worried about you.

0:41:030:41:07

-No she's not. She's only worried about herself.

-Mum!

0:41:070:41:10

The world revolves around you.

0:41:100:41:12

Let me and your mum have a word...

0:41:120:41:14

I suppose she's tried to scab some money off you?

0:41:140:41:16

Get you to buy her shoes cos her cow of a mum won't pay.

0:41:160:41:19

-I didn't ask him for anything.

-You want those shoes, Abi?

0:41:190:41:21

Ask your dad to pay maintenance. You'd have to find him first.

0:41:210:41:24

-Tanya, come on.

-In fact, you want them so much,

0:41:240:41:27

why not get Jay to nick you some? The way you're heading, that's next on the list.

0:41:270:41:31

I hate you!

0:41:310:41:32

PHONE RINGS

0:41:330:41:35

DOOR SLAMS

0:41:350:41:37

You're fine, are you?

0:41:370:41:38

Shouldn't you be in court or something?

0:41:380:41:41

Tan, it's all right to admit you're missing Max.

0:41:410:41:44

You know, no matter what they done, love don't go away, does it?

0:41:440:41:48

You know, Ronnie won't see me.

0:41:480:41:50

I spent the whole morning with the solicitor trying to find a way to make her.

0:41:520:41:56

So, you're not the only one who's hurting.

0:41:560:41:59

Come here.

0:41:590:42:02

Phone for you.

0:42:020:42:03

Please just go, Jack.

0:42:040:42:05

-They won't say who they are.

-I'm not in.

-They're insistent.

0:42:050:42:08

Look, I'm here for you.

0:42:080:42:10

DOOR SLAMS

0:42:120:42:13

You heard her.

0:42:130:42:15

See ya.

0:42:230:42:24

Oi.

0:42:300:42:31

So this is double maths, is it?

0:42:320:42:33

I took an extra shift. I thought you'd be happy.

0:42:330:42:36

-Come on, we've been through this.

-Yeah, personal responsibility, blah, blah, blah.

0:42:360:42:40

Do you want me to let Ian down?

0:42:400:42:41

Want to work in a place like this your whole life?

0:42:410:42:44

No, and I ain't going back to school.

0:42:440:42:45

-How will you afford your rent?

-I'll get my own place and a load of benefits.

0:42:450:42:49

"Get your own place." Yeah, right.

0:42:490:42:51

No. They'll give me what I want.

0:42:510:42:53

I'm going to have a baby.

0:42:530:42:55

Yeah, course you are(!)

0:42:550:42:56

Swear down.

0:42:560:42:57

I'm pregnant.

0:42:570:42:59

Hey, Miss Fox, no flies on you, are there, sweetheart?

0:43:040:43:08

"Kimberley Fox, you're hired."

0:43:080:43:09

-It's a bit random, but...

-You knocking my lucky touch?

0:43:090:43:12

-Don't knock it till you try it.

-You don't know where he's been.

0:43:120:43:15

-Half the Square knows where HE'S been.

-And half the Square will never forget!

0:43:150:43:19

Do me a favour! Hey, Alfie, I called the Gazette.

0:43:190:43:22

-Shut up!

-Yeah, bit of free publicity.

0:43:220:43:24

Thank you very much. Yeah.

0:43:240:43:27

Oh, hello, my love, fancy a scratchcard?

0:43:270:43:29

Auntie Kim has got the lucky touch. Come, let me show you. Come on.

0:43:290:43:34

Rose?

0:43:370:43:39

Rose, what's the matter?

0:43:390:43:40

SHE SOBS

0:43:410:43:43

-Lola, will you listen to yourself?

-I'm keeping it!

0:43:440:43:47

-You haven't thought this through!

-I've never had anything of my own.

0:43:470:43:50

-Well, I'll buy you a goldfish then!

-You think I'm joking, don't you?

0:43:500:43:54

Come here.

0:43:540:43:56

It's a baby, Lola!

0:43:560:43:58

-A baby!

-Yeah, I know.

0:43:580:44:00

-I'll get a flat and then I'm just...

-No, no.

0:44:000:44:02

Wait, you're not going to get a flat.

0:44:020:44:04

They don't just give people flats any more.

0:44:040:44:06

-Yes, they do. Two girls from my home did it.

-This is not a game!

0:44:060:44:09

Didn't say it was, did I?

0:44:090:44:11

And it's not even about the money, the flat or anything like that.

0:44:110:44:15

You're 15 and you're pregnant!

0:44:150:44:17

And how old was you when you had my dad, eh?

0:44:170:44:20

What, you wish you never had him?

0:44:200:44:23

No. Of course I don't.

0:44:230:44:26

Wish you never gave him up?

0:44:260:44:28

-So whose is it?

-Mine.

0:44:310:44:34

-Who's the dad?

-I don't know.

-You must know.

0:44:340:44:36

-It doesn't matter.

-Is it Tyler? I seen him hanging round you yesterday.

0:44:360:44:39

Could be anyone's.

0:44:390:44:41

I'm your grandad!

0:44:410:44:44

Yeah.

0:44:440:44:45

You're going to be a great-grandad soon.

0:44:450:44:48

She's your sister.

0:44:520:44:53

My half-sister.

0:44:530:44:55

Your half-sister.

0:44:550:44:57

You know, we all say things we don't mean.

0:44:570:44:59

You know, I've got three brothers, two sisters.

0:44:590:45:02

We always row about something, fall out. It's what families do.

0:45:020:45:05

You don't know Rose.

0:45:050:45:07

She's always been the same.

0:45:080:45:10

These last few weeks, all I've done is prop people up.

0:45:110:45:14

I didn't come to you.

0:45:150:45:16

-No, I'm not saying that, Dot. We're not so different, you know?

-What?

0:45:160:45:20

-We're always there for other people, picking up the pieces.

-Oh.

0:45:200:45:24

And sometimes that gets lonely.

0:45:240:45:26

You know, sometimes... we want someone there for us.

0:45:260:45:29

Is that what you think?

0:45:290:45:31

You know, when I came back...

0:45:310:45:33

I hoped that, you know, Eddie would still be here.

0:45:330:45:36

-And you think that is how I feel about the vicar?

-No.

0:45:360:45:39

I don't. I meant Rose, all right?

0:45:390:45:42

Dad's in the home. You're lonely.

0:45:420:45:44

And right now, you need your sister.

0:45:440:45:46

You ready?

0:45:540:45:55

That stunt you pulled yesterday...

0:45:560:45:59

-Yeah, well, you did sell me a dodgy tree!

-Got to say...

0:45:590:46:03

I admire your style.

0:46:030:46:04

I can see it now - "Head Chef Wins Perfect Meal Ticket."

0:46:040:46:07

-He's trying to take my photograph!

-"Shopkeeper's Lucky Touch."

0:46:070:46:10

This is my moment!

0:46:100:46:12

Oi! I want a word with you.

0:46:120:46:14

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-What are you doing?

0:46:140:46:16

Will you just let me have my moment!

0:46:160:46:19

I never get to have a moment!

0:46:190:46:21

Not a whole one!

0:46:210:46:22

-Come with me.

-Alfie, Kim, please!

0:46:220:46:25

CAMERA CLICKS

0:46:290:46:31

You got her pregnant!

0:46:310:46:32

-Pops!

-I got no-one pregnant!

0:46:320:46:34

What, you think I'd go near a kid like her?

0:46:340:46:36

-I ain't a kid!

-She's 15!

0:46:360:46:38

-Exactly, you ought to be ashamed of yourself!

-Listen, back off, old man.

0:46:380:46:42

Why did you tell him I got you pregnant?

0:46:420:46:44

-I didn't. He's got the wrong idea.

-Don't cover for him.

0:46:440:46:47

I ain't covering for no-one!

0:46:470:46:48

It ain't Tyler.

0:46:480:46:50

You really pregnant?

0:46:530:46:55

You happy now?

0:46:550:46:56

Yeah. Yeah, I couldn't be happier(!)

0:46:560:46:58

One day I think you're taking your life seriously,

0:46:580:47:01

the next, you're throwing it all away.

0:47:010:47:03

Mummy's a long time on the phone, ain't she?

0:47:030:47:06

Tanya?

0:47:060:47:08

Mrs Jessop?

0:47:190:47:21

Come in.

0:47:210:47:22

Rose?

0:47:260:47:28

I'm very sorry I embarrassed you.

0:47:320:47:35

With the vicar.

0:47:350:47:36

And Patrick.

0:47:360:47:38

-And?

-And I'm willing...

0:47:400:47:44

to forget all those horrible things you said to me.

0:47:440:47:49

Things I said?

0:47:490:47:51

I forgive you.

0:47:560:47:58

Good.

0:48:020:48:03

Well, I wouldn't like to part on bad terms, so...

0:48:060:48:11

you will give my love to Andrew, won't you?

0:48:110:48:14

Dot, we agreed!

0:48:140:48:16

I never agreed nothing, Carol.

0:48:160:48:18

I'm too busy to be lonely.

0:48:180:48:20

And in my humble opinion...

0:48:200:48:23

siblings are too much like hard work.

0:48:230:48:26

Even half-siblings.

0:48:260:48:28

You can collect the rest of your stuff tomorrow.

0:48:280:48:32

Come on, Rose.

0:48:330:48:36

Barrel's gone.

0:48:490:48:50

-Alfie...

-Huh?

0:48:500:48:52

I love you, you muppet.

0:48:520:48:53

Today...

0:49:010:49:03

Today is a nine.

0:49:030:49:05

No, actually, it's a nine and a half!

0:49:050:49:08

I know you think I'm throwing my life away, but I ain't.

0:49:240:49:27

Every time I think I'm doing right by you,

0:49:270:49:31

every time I think we're getting there...

0:49:310:49:33

You are doing right by me.

0:49:330:49:34

No, I'm not.

0:49:340:49:36

Lo, you're 15, you've stopped going to school.

0:49:360:49:40

You're pregnant. And you don't even know who the father is.

0:49:400:49:43

So? It doesn't matter.

0:49:430:49:44

-Yes, it does matter.

-Well, the baby don't need a dad.

0:49:440:49:47

It's got you.

0:49:480:49:50

Oh, hello.

0:49:560:49:57

Yeah, I let myself in.

0:49:570:49:59

Rose is in the front room. Dot's thrown her out.

0:49:590:50:02

You all right?

0:50:020:50:03

-No, I just had a run-in.

-Having a day of it, aren't you?

0:50:030:50:07

With Tanya.

0:50:070:50:08

You too?

0:50:080:50:10

I've never seen her like that before, she was crazy.

0:50:100:50:14

I mean, you got Abi worried.

0:50:150:50:17

Lauren's a mess. There's something not quite right here.

0:50:170:50:20

I tried to help her, she told me where to stick it.

0:50:200:50:22

-You know, Dot's right. It's too much like hard work.

-I'm serious, Carol.

0:50:220:50:27

I think we need to get hold of Max, tell him what's going on.

0:50:270:50:30

Yeah, and how are we going to do that? We don't even know where he is.

0:50:300:50:33

You know, don't you?

0:50:350:50:37

After all this time?

0:50:370:50:38

Look, he made me promise.

0:50:380:50:40

Why? Where is he?

0:50:400:50:41

Jack, where is he?

0:50:410:50:44

He's with Derek.

0:50:450:50:47

Just come inside and talk about it.

0:50:500:50:54

Don't give up the fight!

0:50:540:50:56

It's my decision.

0:50:560:50:57

Of course it is, but...

0:50:570:50:59

And can stop ringing my house, stop calling my doctor.

0:50:590:51:02

You're scared, I understand that.

0:51:020:51:04

Do you?

0:51:040:51:06

What do you understand? What exactly do you understand?

0:51:060:51:09

Cancer is a disease we can treat.

0:51:090:51:12

Right, like you treated my father?

0:51:120:51:15

I don't know your father.

0:51:150:51:16

Pumped him full of chemicals, like a load of dry cleaning.

0:51:160:51:19

It did him the world of good(!)

0:51:190:51:21

Or like you helped Siobhan.

0:51:210:51:22

I can only talk about your case.

0:51:220:51:24

That's all I am to you, isn't it?

0:51:240:51:26

Just another case.

0:51:260:51:28

Fighting this thing like it's some sort of noisy neighbour.

0:51:290:51:34

But it's not, is it? It's in...

0:51:340:51:37

It's in me. It's part of me.

0:51:370:51:40

-So how am I supposed to fight that?

-Just...

0:51:400:51:42

Let's talk in my office.

0:51:420:51:44

-Now, we've been trying to get hold of you for two weeks.

-No.

0:51:440:51:48

-You missed a number of sessions.

-There's no point.

0:51:480:51:50

There's no point. You can't do anything.

0:51:500:51:53

I'm not having any more treatment. I've had enough. My treatment's over.

0:51:530:51:56

I'm not sure you fully understand.

0:51:560:51:59

It's my decision.

0:51:590:52:01

You should respect it.

0:52:010:52:03

In stopping your treatment, there is a strong chance that you've made your prognosis worse.

0:52:030:52:08

There is even a possibility that the cancer could have already progressed.

0:52:080:52:13

Are you sure this is what you want?

0:52:130:52:15

Of course it isn't what I want. None of this is what I want.

0:52:160:52:20

Without treatment, you're highly likely to get worse.

0:52:200:52:23

And in my experience, there is a strong probability you may die.

0:52:230:52:28

It could be a year.

0:52:280:52:30

It could even be less.

0:52:300:52:31

You think I don't know that?

0:52:310:52:33

"You've got to fight this."

0:52:370:52:39

"Be brave."

0:52:390:52:40

"You can win."

0:52:400:52:42

Well, I'm not brave.

0:52:450:52:47

And I'm not strong.

0:52:480:52:50

And don't... Don't tell me to pull myself together, cos...

0:52:520:52:55

there's nothing left to pull.

0:52:550:52:57

I'm out of fight.

0:52:590:53:01

I've got no strength left.

0:53:010:53:03

I'm the one that's going through this, right?

0:53:040:53:06

I'm the one that this is happening to. Not you. Not anyone else.

0:53:060:53:11

So this is my choice, it's my life.

0:53:110:53:14

And I'm going to live what's left of it in whatever way I choose.

0:53:150:53:19

Are you sure she's related to Grandma Dot?

0:53:490:53:52

-KNOCKING

-Mum?

0:54:010:54:03

Yes, love?

0:54:030:54:05

You want to hurry up? There's other people in this family, you know!

0:54:050:54:08

No, I know, I won't be long.

0:54:080:54:10

Are you all right in there?

0:54:100:54:11

Yes. Course I am.

0:54:120:54:14

Rose Elizabeth Beauchamp?

0:54:440:54:47

It's got...character.

0:54:520:54:55

It's hideous. That's not a Christmas tree, it's a fire hazard.

0:54:550:54:58

-At least she's making an effort.

-Bathroom's free.

0:54:580:55:01

Mum, what are you doing?

0:55:030:55:05

Getting rid of this eyesore. What was you thinking, Tanya?

0:55:050:55:08

-Nothing wrong with making an effort, is there?

-That's what I said.

0:55:080:55:12

This is you making an effort?

0:55:120:55:13

I was worried it might be another example of you behaving... erratically.

0:55:130:55:17

-What do you mean, "erratically"?

-Sleeping all hours. Drinking too much.

0:55:170:55:21

Letting your kids run wild.

0:55:210:55:23

You're lecturing me?

0:55:230:55:25

I'm worried about you.

0:55:260:55:28

Well, I'm fine. My kids are fine.

0:55:300:55:32

The only thing "running wild" around here, Mum,

0:55:320:55:35

is your imagination, and the thing you should be worried about is finding somewhere to live.

0:55:350:55:42

Abi, what are you doing?

0:55:420:55:44

-Looking for money.

-For lunch. Yes. Right. How much do you need?

0:55:440:55:48

-20 quid.

-Are you still going on about those shoes?

0:55:480:55:50

Yeah, the sale ends today.

0:55:500:55:52

-I told you, no.

-Yeah, I got the message. See?

0:55:520:55:55

Do you think you're going to find 20 quid down the back of the sofa?

0:55:550:55:59

I would've borrowed it off Lauren except I don't know where she is. She didn't come home last night.

0:55:590:56:03

-I thought you knew?

-Well, as long as she's not running wild.

0:56:030:56:07

All right, Pops?

0:56:180:56:21

Nice threads.

0:56:210:56:23

You ain't got a tenner I could borrow, have you?

0:56:230:56:26

What for?

0:56:260:56:28

Er...lunch. I'm eating for two now, ain't I?

0:56:280:56:30

Lo, sorry. Skint. So's the kitty, before you ask.

0:56:300:56:34

Okey doke.

0:56:340:56:36

Lo...

0:56:360:56:37

Listen.

0:56:390:56:41

I want you to know that I'm here for you if you want to talk,

0:56:410:56:46

-you know, to...support you and that.

-Pops, I ain't telling you who the baby's father is.

0:56:460:56:51

-Why not?

-Cos it's none of your business. Besides, you'd only do something stupid like beat him up.

0:56:510:56:56

I swear I'm not going to beat anyone up.

0:56:560:56:58

Look, it doesn't matter. Cos I don't know who the baby's father is.

0:56:580:57:01

-I don't believe you.

-You're calling me a liar?

0:57:010:57:04

-How can you not know who the father is?

-So much for supporting me, eh?

0:57:040:57:09

Lola.

0:57:090:57:10

-Just leave it.

-Lo!

0:57:100:57:11

What do you think you're doing?

0:57:140:57:16

I'm showing you the evidence.

0:57:160:57:18

-Evidence of what?

-The injury I have suffered doing the job that your cleaner, Rose, was supposed to do.

0:57:180:57:24

-This isn't going to help.

-Dot's your sister. She needs you.

0:57:290:57:33

I can think of a few things that Dot needs.

0:57:330:57:37

-I'm not one of them.

-Well, we'll see.

0:57:370:57:39

Oh, good. I hoped it was you.

0:57:390:57:41

One moment.

0:57:410:57:42

What did I tell you?

0:57:420:57:44

If I've missed anything, I'll be sure to send it on to your forwarding address.

0:57:480:57:52

Goodbye.

0:57:520:57:53

You were saying?

0:57:560:57:57

Thanks, Whit. No, she hasn't seen her since nine o'clock last night.

0:57:590:58:02

She thinks she went clubbing with Anthony and Tyler.

0:58:020:58:05

-Clubbing? Well, that's a relief.

-Just going straight to voice mail.

0:58:050:58:09

Why didn't you tell us about this earlier?

0:58:090:58:11

It's not like it's the first time. She's doing it to get attention. And it's working. As usual.

0:58:110:58:16

She's got a point there.

0:58:160:58:18

PHONE RINGS

0:58:180:58:19

Lauren?!

0:58:190:58:21

How many times do I have to tell you, will you just stop calling me?

0:58:210:58:25

Just double glazing.

0:58:270:58:29

Mum? Calm down, yeah. Lauren'll...

0:58:290:58:31

-What are you still doing here? You should be at school.

-I wanted...

0:58:310:58:35

Abi, for goodness' sake!

0:58:350:58:37

If you want those shoes badly enough then you just find a way! Use your initiative for once in your life.

0:58:370:58:43

Abi...

0:58:440:58:45

0:58:450:58:47

0:58:490:58:50

Hello?

0:58:500:58:53

Yeah.

0:58:530:58:54

OK, yeah, yeah.

0:58:540:58:57

What?

0:58:570:58:59

No, no.

0:58:590:59:00

That was Gaynor.

0:59:020:59:04

You're wanted at work.

0:59:040:59:06

I'm not going anywhere till I find my daughter.

0:59:060:59:08

Yes, you are. You're going to work to earn a living. I'll take Oscar to nursery. Rainie'll look for Lauren.

0:59:080:59:14

-Right?

-Of course.

0:59:140:59:15

-But I...

-No buts.

0:59:150:59:17

We're your family.

0:59:170:59:19

And we're going to help you whether you like it or not.

0:59:190:59:23

You need to get a grip, Tanya.

0:59:230:59:26

I'm not letting them run wild.

0:59:260:59:28

I don't why know you've come back here persisting, Carol.

0:59:300:59:33

I'm late for the launderette as it is.

0:59:330:59:35

I've said my piece and that is it.

0:59:350:59:37

-That's not like you, Dot. One word when a sermon will do.

-Ladies...

0:59:370:59:41

I've found that in this case actions speak louder than words.

0:59:410:59:44

I can see that. Packing me up and out of your life that quickly.

0:59:440:59:49

Enough! Listen to the pair of you!

0:59:490:59:51

You've found each other again and now you're going to throw it all away? Over what?

0:59:510:59:56

-Not what. Who.

-What d'you mean, who?

0:59:560:59:58

Oh, come on, Dot. You know it's all about Charlie. Always has been and always will be.

0:59:581:00:02

It's not about Charlie. It's about me trusting ya.

1:00:021:00:06

-Dot, Rose is your sister.

-I had a half-sister.

1:00:061:00:09

I know you disapprove of me, Dot.

1:00:091:00:11

But that doesn't change the fact that I'm still your sister.

1:00:111:00:14

I knew my half-sister as Rose Elizabeth Taylor.

1:00:141:00:17

Then she erroneously became Rose Cotton, having bigamously married my husband Charlie Cotton

1:00:171:00:24

while I was still his wife.

1:00:241:00:28

My sister did not have a passport, or so she told me.

1:00:281:00:31

And my sister's name was never "Rose Beauchamp."

1:00:311:00:37

So who this woman is, I ain't got the foggiest idea.

1:00:371:00:42

-You've been through my things?

-I've come up with more than I bargained for.

1:00:421:00:46

It's not what you think.

1:00:461:00:47

No, Rose. With you, it never is.

1:00:471:00:51

Rose?

1:00:521:00:54

Just wait!

1:00:541:00:55

Look, make sure she takes all her belongings with her.

1:00:551:00:58

I've got to go now.

1:00:581:00:59

A measly 20 quid, and she reckons she's skint.

1:01:021:01:04

-Maybe she is.

-Yeah, except for when she's getting bladdered with Lauren down the Vic.

1:01:041:01:09

While she barely has time for me. Why're you defending her, anyway?

1:01:091:01:12

I'm not. I'm just trying to see her side of things.

1:01:121:01:15

Don't.

1:01:151:01:17

All right.

1:01:171:01:18

-Well?

-Well, what?

1:01:201:01:23

-Have you got 20 quid or not?

-Did you ask?

1:01:231:01:25

-What do you think I've been doing for ten minutes?

-Complaining!

1:01:251:01:28

-Read between the lines, Jay.

-Actually, d'you know what, I'm skint as well.

1:01:281:01:33

You could have told me that ten minutes ago.

1:01:331:01:36

-What am I supposed to do now?

-I don't know. You heard your mum. Go and improvise.

1:01:361:01:42

You all right?

1:01:431:01:45

Yeah. No. I've got something of yours.

1:01:451:01:49

Ten quid? You can keep that.

1:01:491:01:51

Thanks, but no.

1:01:511:01:53

-Uncle Jack.

-All right? Does your mum know you're not at school?

1:01:531:01:57

-Cup of tea, please.

-All right, sexy. How's it going?

-Late for work. How are you?

1:02:011:02:05

Preggers. Give us a bit of toast.

1:02:051:02:08

Rose ain't here, I'm afraid. Didn't she show up for work?

1:02:101:02:13

Nah. First day and all. S'posed to be cleaning Ian's place.

1:02:131:02:17

Now Mandy's gone and chipped a nail scrubbing out a sink, she's started screaming blue murder.

1:02:171:02:22

-Talking about law suits. Oh, dear.

-Drink?

1:02:221:02:25

-Eh? Nah, I shouldn't.

-You look like you could use it.

-Go on, then.

1:02:251:02:29

Come on, Bill. What's the problem?

1:02:291:02:32

Is it that obvious?

1:02:321:02:34

-Frankly, you look like Eeyore without his Prozac.

-Cheers.

1:02:341:02:39

Is it work?

1:02:391:02:41

Janine?

1:02:421:02:43

No. It's...family troubles.

1:02:431:02:47

Lola? What's she done now?

1:02:471:02:50

I'm going to be a great-grandfather, Pat.

1:02:501:02:52

Oh, my God.

1:02:531:02:55

Anthony!

1:02:591:03:00

Anthony!

1:03:001:03:02

Carol? You seen Lauren?

1:03:061:03:08

Not since last night. Why? She not come home?

1:03:081:03:11

Nah, she ain't answering her phone neither.

1:03:111:03:13

-I'll let you know if I hear anything.

-Ta.

1:03:131:03:16

Tyler! Tyler!

1:03:161:03:19

-I'll need a receipt.

-Yeah, I heard you the first time.

1:03:191:03:22

-If Billy thinks I'm paying...

-Lauren. It's me.

1:03:221:03:24

-Give me a call me as soon as you get this.

-Should you not be focussing?

1:03:241:03:28

-It's called multi-tasking.

-You all right?

1:03:281:03:30

-Yes. Why wouldn't I be?

-I just saw Abi. She didn't look happy.

1:03:301:03:34

-She's a 15-year-old girl, Jack. She's never happy.

-About that multi-tasking...

1:03:341:03:37

All right, Tanya?

1:03:371:03:38

-The next person that asks me that...

-I heard Lauren's missing.

1:03:381:03:41

She's not "missing". She just hasn't come back yet. OK? If you don't mind...

1:03:411:03:45

She's multi-tasking... Ow!

-Er...

-Sorry.

Look what you've done! You've maimed me!

1:03:561:03:59

Can you come back, you mad bint!

1:03:591:04:01

Oh, I can't believe it!

1:04:051:04:07

Thing is, I'm trying to be grown-up about the whole thing,

1:04:071:04:11

but every time I think about it... Every time I think about some bloke being with my Lola, I want to...

1:04:111:04:17

Go round there and shout the odds?

1:04:171:04:19

I want to rip his scrawny little head off.

1:04:191:04:23

But I know that that's wrong and I've gotta rise above it.

1:04:231:04:27

That's good of you, Billy.

1:04:271:04:29

Maybe you could do it.

1:04:291:04:31

-I think my days of ripping heads off are long gone.

-No, I didn't mean...

1:04:311:04:34

I meant, maybe you could talk to Lola.

1:04:341:04:37

You know, woman to woman. About the responsibilities of having a baby.

1:04:371:04:42

That's a good one.

1:04:421:04:43

You're serious, ain't ya?

1:04:451:04:47

Me and Lola don't exactly get on. I don't think she'd want to hear it from me.

1:04:471:04:53

Now Julie's gone... Lola's got it into her head that this is all going to be easy.

1:04:531:04:58

That she can live it large off single mother's benefits.

1:04:581:05:03

She's not even 16, Pat.

1:05:031:05:05

You want me to explain that there are people that can help?

1:05:071:05:11

That there's no shame in asking for help.

1:05:111:05:14

I just think it'll be better coming from a woman.

1:05:141:05:16

It always is, Billy. It always is.

1:05:161:05:19

I knew I could count on you. Thanks, Pat.

1:05:191:05:23

Er... Oh!

1:05:251:05:28

You want to worry about something? Worry about that.

1:05:341:05:38

It was at Tyler's. Anthony heard her say she lost it. They thought it must be at the club.

1:05:381:05:43

The club they left without her. Why?

1:05:431:05:45

She stayed.

1:05:451:05:47

Alone?

1:05:471:05:49

No.

1:05:491:05:51

-Right. So, we don't know where my daughter is, who she's with or if she's all right.

-It could be worse.

1:05:531:05:58

-Really? How?

-A police car's just pulled up.

1:05:581:06:00

Is it Lauren? Is she OK?

1:06:071:06:09

-Who's Lauren?

-Lauren Branning. My daughter.

1:06:091:06:11

She told us her name was Abigail.

1:06:111:06:13

What do you know?

1:06:141:06:16

It got worse.

1:06:161:06:18

Abi now? And Lauren missing as well?

1:06:211:06:24

You gotta do something, Jack.

1:06:541:06:56

Not Tyler.

1:06:561:06:57

Although I'm beginning to wish I was...

1:06:581:07:02

-Tyler?

-No.

-I give up, then.

1:07:171:07:21

-You ain't got 20 quid, have you?

-Oh, were we playing for money?

1:07:211:07:24

No. I could just use 20 quid.

1:07:241:07:25

Seeing as you asked straight out and no messing about.

1:07:251:07:29

Thank you.

1:07:291:07:31

Who else knows, then? I cannot wait to see Ben's face.

1:07:311:07:34

Whatever.

1:07:341:07:35

Come on, then. Who's the father?

1:07:351:07:38

No idea.

1:07:391:07:42

All right, Bill.

1:07:421:07:44

Jay.

1:07:441:07:45

Lo, you got a minute?

1:07:451:07:47

Depends. What's in it for me?

There's no rush, is there?

1:08:021:08:04

Sorry, what?

1:08:041:08:06

There's no rush. Have some lunch or...whatever.

1:08:061:08:09

Thanks, but no.

1:08:091:08:12

Have you seen my bag?

1:08:131:08:15

My phone?

1:08:251:08:27

You lost it. Last night.

1:08:271:08:29

Remember?

1:08:291:08:30

Think it's probably best if I just get out of here.

1:08:321:08:35

You don't know where "here" is, do you?

1:08:351:08:38

Outta control.

1:08:381:08:40

I'm not out of control.

1:08:401:08:43

What's my name?

1:08:431:08:44

Can you just call me a cab, please?

1:08:491:08:51

What are you doing here?

1:09:021:09:04

Don't worry, Dot. I'm here to wash. Not to talk.

1:09:041:09:07

That'll make a change.

1:09:071:09:09

What's cooking?

1:09:131:09:15

A baby. In your belly, apparently.

1:09:151:09:18

Yeah, what's that got to do with you?

1:09:181:09:20

Billy asked me to talk to you, woman to woman.

1:09:211:09:25

OK, then.

1:09:251:09:26

Talk.

1:09:281:09:30

D'you want a drink?

1:09:301:09:32

-Pat!

-It's all right. It's all right. No. I shouldn't really.

1:09:321:09:36

But you'd like one?

1:09:361:09:37

Well, yeah. If I weren't pregnant.

1:09:371:09:40

So you do know you gotta make sacrifices?

1:09:411:09:44

Yeah, of course.

1:09:441:09:45

Good. Cos giving up drink is the easiest of 'em.

1:09:451:09:48

Having a baby is one big sacrifice after another.

1:09:491:09:53

It's the single biggest responsibility you will ever undertake.

1:09:531:09:59

The hardest, most painful,

1:09:591:10:00

most unrelenting thing you'll ever face in your life.

1:10:001:10:03

-And that's just the next nine months.

-Pat.

1:10:031:10:06

So you gotta be sure about this.

1:10:061:10:09

If you're not, there are options.

1:10:101:10:14

There are doctors who can help.

1:10:151:10:17

On the NHS, so it's clean and safe, not like it was in my day.

1:10:171:10:21

Pat!

1:10:211:10:22

What, are you saying you want me to have an abortion?

1:10:261:10:28

Er... I just wanted you to know that there are people that can help.

1:10:301:10:36

You're crazy.

1:10:361:10:39

And you're well out of order.

1:10:391:10:40

Lola... Lo!

1:10:401:10:41

What was that about?

1:10:441:10:46

I thought you wanted her to know that there were people that could help. Doctors she could see and that...

1:10:461:10:51

Ante-natal doctors! Not abortionists!

1:10:511:10:54

Thank you so much, Officer. Once again, I can't apologise enough. Sorry.

1:10:591:11:03

It's all right, Abs.

1:11:131:11:16

What have you got to say for yourself?

1:11:171:11:20

Go easy on her, Tan.

1:11:201:11:21

Stay out of this. Well?

1:11:211:11:23

Sorry.

1:11:231:11:25

You're sorry? For what? What part? The shoplifting?

1:11:251:11:29

The criminal damage?

1:11:291:11:31

Don't forget the bit about fleeing a crime scene.

1:11:311:11:34

All for a pair of shoes, Abi. What were you thinking?!

1:11:341:11:37

-I wanted a pair of shoes.

-Don't get smart.

1:11:371:11:39

This is the second time the police have brought you home! What did you think you were doing?

1:11:391:11:44

-What you told me to do.

-What?

1:11:441:11:46

-I was showing some initiative. D'you remember?

-Don't you put this on me.

1:11:461:11:49

No. We wouldn't want that, would we?

1:11:491:11:51

-Right, that's enough.

-Good!

1:11:511:11:53

Where do think you're going? What is going on with you?

1:11:531:11:56

Me? Mum, you want to take a look in the mirror,

1:11:561:11:59

because I'm not the one with the problem!

1:11:591:12:01

So, go after her.

Some customer's claiming that you maimed 'em.

1:12:361:12:40

That'll be because of the shaking, no doubt.

1:12:401:12:43

Tan, where you going?

1:12:481:12:49

-You proud of yourself?

-Abi's right. Tanya does need to look into the mirror some time.

1:12:521:12:57

And I...

1:12:571:13:00

need a cigarette.

1:13:001:13:02

I'm out of fags.

1:13:061:13:08

That's Abi's bag!

1:13:081:13:10

She's shoplifting, defying authority. Stands to reason she's smoking.

1:14:001:14:02

Yes. I'm pregnant.

1:14:021:14:04

Right. How?

1:14:041:14:05

Pretty sure the normal way.

1:14:051:14:07

-Are you going to keep it?

-Yeah.

1:14:171:14:20

Ben, look. What we did, I don't even think it really counts.

1:14:201:14:23

And you ain't the only guy I've been with, you know.

1:14:231:14:27

Yes, you're off the hook.

1:14:271:14:29

Right. Catch you in a bit.

1:14:291:14:32

Sorry.

1:14:331:14:35

Oh, no. Now what've I done?

1:14:421:14:45

Too much soap powder. An extra rinse'll clear it.

1:14:451:14:49

I could use your help.

1:14:511:14:53

-I can show you if you like.

-Thank you.

In Liverpool.

1:15:061:15:09

I might have known.

1:15:091:15:12

It wasn't a good relationship, Dot. It was...

1:15:121:15:15

Adulterous?

1:15:161:15:18

Violent.

1:15:191:15:20

He hurt me, Dot.

Don't.

I don't know. Not really. I've gotta go for Abi. Will you just go home and wait there for your mum?

1:16:131:16:19

Why? Where is she?

Not sure. She said she needs to be somewhere. Come on.

No.

He's been spending a lot of time with her lately, hasn't he?

1:16:441:16:48

She won't leave him alone.

1:16:481:16:50

-He doesn't seem to mind, from what I can see.

-What do you mean?

1:16:501:16:54

Seen 'em earlier on, laughing and messing about together.

1:16:541:16:58

He even give her 20 quid.

1:16:581:17:00

Jay doesn't have 20 quid to give anyone, let alone Lola.

1:17:001:17:03

Well, you can change your name but you can't change your nature.

-Ah, that's taken care of.

Well, I've always maintained you go north of Watford at your peril.

1:17:411:17:45

Probably better that you stay around here.

Just to be on the safe side.

1:17:481:17:50

You told Ben, then.

1:17:551:17:57

Should've seen his face.

Yeah, I did.

1:18:001:18:02

Yes! Why does everyone keep asking me that?

When you put it that way...

What's this, then?

1:18:101:18:12

It's what I got with the money you give me.

1:19:161:19:19

I can't see her.

1:19:191:19:22

Lauren?

1:19:221:19:24

You OK?

1:19:241:19:26

Yeah, I'm fine. It's my mum I'm worried about.

1:19:261:19:29

-She's meant to be here.

-Yeah, she is.

1:19:291:19:31

Good. So where is she?

1:19:311:19:32

-I don't know. I thought she'd...

-She's not here?

1:19:321:19:35

I can say that she's not.

1:19:351:19:37

So she's finished her treatment, then?

1:19:371:19:39

I think you should talk to your mum.

1:19:391:19:42

That's why I'm here. She's got an appointment, ain't she?

1:19:421:19:45

What, she ain't showed up?

1:19:481:19:51

Has my mum been missing appointments?

1:19:511:19:55

-Has she been having any treatment at all?

-You really need to talk to your mum.

1:19:571:20:01

About time.

1:20:041:20:06

-Mum...

-Abi, darling, I'm so sorry about before.

1:20:081:20:12

It's not you. It's me and Jay... We broke up.

1:20:121:20:15

Did you, darling, why? What's happened?

1:20:151:20:18

-Where's Lauren? Didn't she find you?

-Lauren's back? Is she all right?

1:20:181:20:23

Yeah, she's all right.

1:20:231:20:24

You just don't care!

1:20:241:20:26

Abi, I do, darling! Of course! What happened?

1:20:261:20:29

It might have something to do with this. I found it in her bag.

1:20:291:20:33

You're pregnant?

1:20:331:20:34

-No, it's not...

-Abi, how could you? How could you? You stupid, stupid little girl!

1:20:341:20:39

Tanya! What is wrong with you?

1:20:391:20:41

-What do you mean? This isn't about me!

-Families fall apart from the top down.

1:20:411:20:45

Nothing's falling apart, Mum.

1:20:451:20:47

How can you say that?

1:20:471:20:49

-You've not been yourself.

-Not you an' all?

1:20:491:20:51

All of us.

1:20:511:20:53

You want to know what's wrong? You want to know what's wrong?

1:20:551:20:59

I'll tell you what's wrong. You! All of you is what is wrong.

1:20:591:21:03

I have got a toddler to look after alone, a business to run alone,

1:21:031:21:07

and I've got a husband who hates my guts, and an ex-husband who's nowhere to be found.

1:21:071:21:12

And I've had... I've got this flu thing.

1:21:121:21:14

And what help have I had from my family, eh?

1:21:141:21:17

What support?

1:21:171:21:19

I've got a leech for a mother, whose welcome has run out, by the way.

1:21:191:21:23

And a crack-smoking self-obsessed sister.

1:21:231:21:26

And, worst of all, I've got this spiteful, spoilt brat of a daughter,

1:21:261:21:29

-who's not only a criminal, she's a tart too!

-It takes one to know one!

1:21:291:21:32

Enough!

1:21:321:21:35

Dad, it's not what you think. I'm not pregnant.

1:21:421:21:46

So, what's this? Hmm?

1:21:471:21:50

-What is that, a stick of rock?

-It's nothing to do with me.

1:21:501:21:53

What are you doing here, Max?

1:21:531:21:56

I had a call.

1:21:561:21:58

From Jack.

1:22:001:22:02

Worried, he was. About this family, about what's going on.

1:22:031:22:06

-Nothing's going on.

-Seems that way, yeah(!)

1:22:061:22:09

-Dad...

-Shut up, will ya, Abi? I don't want to hear another word from you.

1:22:091:22:13

Look at the state of you.

1:22:161:22:19

You let yourself go, ain't you?

1:22:201:22:23

Jack's told me. Getting drunk in the Vic. Letting your kids run wild.

1:22:231:22:27

Where's Oscar? Is he shooting up in the playground, is he?

1:22:271:22:30

-I'd like you to leave now.

-And what about this, Tanya?

1:22:301:22:32

-You just going to forget about this?

-It's not mine.

-Yeah? So whose is it?

1:22:321:22:36

A mate's. She gave it to me,

1:22:361:22:39

asked me to hide it. I'm covering for her.

1:22:391:22:41

-I smell a porky.

-Who is this mate?

1:22:411:22:43

Just tell me Abi, or I'll go out buy another one and make you do it right here.

1:22:441:22:48

Lola. Lola Pearce. She's pregnant and Jay's the father.

1:22:501:22:53

-So it's got nothing to do with you, has it?

-No!

1:22:531:22:57

No, nothing. So you can go out and get another test,

1:22:571:23:00

another ten, and I'll prove it.

1:23:001:23:02

-Yeah, well I might just do that.

-Yeah. Yeah, why don't you, Mum?

1:23:021:23:05

Because then everything will be all right, won't it?

1:23:051:23:08

You won't be a total bitch to live with, a total misery,

1:23:081:23:11

taking everything out on me. Always disappearing, lying, treating me like dirt.

1:23:111:23:15

That is enough.

1:23:151:23:18

-I think we're all sorted here, Max.

-Sorted?!

1:23:181:23:22

Sorted? I couldn't be less sorted!

1:23:221:23:24

She got nicked.

1:23:241:23:26

Shoplifting.

1:23:261:23:29

Great. What, is that true?

1:23:311:23:34

I only did it cos she pushed me.

1:23:341:23:35

You don't understand what it's been like, Dad, since you left. It's been horrible.

1:23:351:23:39

Sorry, Abi, but you asked me to go. What, you forgot?

1:23:391:23:42

-I was upset, it was a shock.

-Especially to Vanessa.

1:23:441:23:49

-Yeah, where is Vanessa?

-She don't live here any more. She's moved on.

1:23:541:23:58

-What about Lauren? Where's Lauren?

-Out.

1:24:031:24:06

I don't know what you think you're doing coming back here, Max,

1:24:081:24:11

but you're not wanted, right? You're not needed.

1:24:111:24:14

So, whatever Jack's told you, it was an exaggeration,

1:24:141:24:17

he's got it all wrong, cos everything is in hand, so why don't you just crawl off

1:24:171:24:21

back to wherever you came from? I think that would be best.

1:24:211:24:24

I'm sorry to intrude. But the door was open.

1:24:241:24:28

And I found this little tyke

1:24:281:24:30

-earwigging in the hallway, didn't I, eh?

-Hello, mate. All right?

1:24:301:24:34

Ladies.

1:24:341:24:36

Lovely to see you all again.

1:24:361:24:38

What's he doing here?

1:24:391:24:41

Always the charmer, eh? Your wife, Max?

1:24:411:24:44

Or should I say ex-wife?

1:24:441:24:47

How are you, Tanya?

1:24:471:24:49

You're looking peaky.

1:24:491:24:51

Cora...

1:24:511:24:53

We met at the wedding. Derek.

1:24:531:24:54

I'm Max's older brother. Glad to see the years have been so kind.

1:24:541:24:58

That's what 40-a-day does for you.

1:24:581:25:01

40-a-day. I like that one, I'll use that.

1:25:011:25:04

Good.

1:25:041:25:06

And Lorraine,

1:25:061:25:08

now, you haven't changed a bit.

1:25:081:25:10

Yeah, right. Last time I saw you, Derek, I was 17.

1:25:111:25:15

Skinny little legs. I remember you very well.

1:25:171:25:20

And you...

1:25:231:25:25

now, you must be Abi.

1:25:251:25:27

Ain't she the spit of our mum, eh, Max?

1:25:291:25:30

Ain't she the spit?

1:25:301:25:32

You're beautiful, darling. Beautiful.

1:25:321:25:35

I'm your uncle Derek, by the way.

1:25:351:25:38

Your dad's been staying with me for a bit.

1:25:381:25:41

Abi, can you take Oscar upstairs?

1:25:411:25:44

Well.

1:25:491:25:51

Ain't this nice, eh? Together again after all these years, the family.

1:25:511:25:55

You ain't my family.

1:25:551:25:56

That's true. That's very true.

1:25:561:25:58

I'm getting ahead of myself.

1:25:581:26:00

That's my trouble, me. Always shooting off at the mouth.

1:26:001:26:03

Never know when to keep this shut.

1:26:031:26:06

Like I said, I don't want to intrude.

1:26:101:26:12

Just wanted to see how you're doing. You all right?

1:26:121:26:14

Yeah, I'm fine, yeah.

1:26:141:26:16

-Just having a little chat.

-Course, yeah, course.

1:26:161:26:19

Only, er, we got a certain little lady in the car.

1:26:191:26:22

She ain't the most patient girl in the world.

1:26:221:26:25

So, when you're ready. No rush. In your own time.

1:26:251:26:27

Ladies, it's been an absolute pleasure.

1:26:291:26:32

Lorraine. I'll see myself out.

1:26:321:26:35

That your new bit, Max?

1:26:441:26:46

She's blonde.

1:26:481:26:50

Kind of. Sitting there, bold as brass.

1:26:501:26:52

Well, that's Max for you.

1:26:521:26:54

Always had a thing for a blonde. Ain't you, Max? You and blondes.

1:26:541:26:59

-You got a thing for 'em.

-Yeah.

1:26:591:27:02

Yeah, well...used to.

1:27:031:27:05

-Well, how long's he going to be?

-I dunno, do I?

1:27:101:27:12

I'm not a mind reader.

1:27:121:27:14

-I think I'm just going to nip over and see me brother Jack.

-Can I come too?

1:27:141:27:18

Nah. You stay there.

1:27:181:27:19

Put the radio on. Listen to a tune, eh?

1:27:191:27:22

Pat! Hello, love.

1:27:451:27:47

Don't run away.

1:27:521:27:54

Oh, look, clumsy.

1:27:541:27:56

Ain't you going to say hello?

1:27:581:28:01

Ain't so often you see a face from the past, is it?

1:28:011:28:03

-All I want to do is speak to Lauren, so where is she?

-I don't know.

1:28:061:28:10

She's a teenager, Max.

1:28:101:28:12

I never know where she is, she treats this place like a hotel.

1:28:121:28:15

-Call her then, on her mobile.

-She left it here.

1:28:151:28:18

Phone her mate then, phone Whitney.

1:28:181:28:19

-She's not at Whit's.

-When's the last time you saw her?

-Yesterday.

1:28:191:28:23

-Yesterday.

-I saw her earlier, actually.

-See?

1:28:231:28:26

See? You think we need you to come back here and rescue us.

1:28:261:28:29

Well, we don't. I've told you to get out because I don't want you in my life.

1:28:291:28:33

You want to see the kids, fine, you do that,

1:28:331:28:35

but you wait on the street and you do not come through that door again.

1:28:351:28:38

-That door?

-Yes, that door.

-Door of my house?

1:28:381:28:42

What, my front door? The house that I live in?

1:28:421:28:46

-Not any more.

-Babe, I ain't going anywhere

1:28:461:28:49

until I've seen Lauren and know what's going on,

1:28:491:28:51

and that my kids are safe and happy.

1:28:511:28:53

And if they ain't, Tan,

1:28:531:28:56

if I think you ain't doing a proper job,

1:28:561:28:58

I'm going to take this big, fat wad of fifties

1:29:001:29:04

and I'm going to put it in the hand of the best brief I can find.

1:29:041:29:06

Derek knows a few, as you can imagine.

1:29:061:29:09

And I'm going to take my kids and we'll live somewhere nice.

1:29:091:29:12

Nice house. Big garden.

1:29:121:29:15

Fresh air.

1:29:151:29:17

Good school. And you, Tan, can come visit at weekends.

1:29:171:29:21

If I let you. Do you understand?

1:29:211:29:23

Get out. Just get out.

1:29:231:29:26

Cora, stick the kettle on, will you? Got a bit of a thirst, here.

1:29:261:29:29

-Max, I'm telling you.

-What you telling me?

1:29:291:29:32

What you going to do?

1:29:321:29:34

You going to hit me, are you? Go on.

1:29:341:29:37

You going to bury me alive?

1:29:391:29:41

This family, this family, they ain't got a clue what a psycho you are.

1:29:431:29:47

Everyone thinks you're a perfect housewife. Tanya, mother of three.

1:29:491:29:52

Well, you ain't.

1:29:521:29:54

You ain't at all.

1:29:541:29:56

You're a mess.

1:29:561:29:58

-And a hypocrite.

-Just go.

1:29:591:30:01

Cora, babe. I don't see that kettle on.

1:30:011:30:03

Get out or I'm calling my stepson down. He's a mechanic,

1:30:131:30:16

and he'll kick you into kingdom come if you don't get out in five seconds.

1:30:161:30:19

Hit me with his spanner, will he? I've had worse.

1:30:191:30:22

Ricky! Ricky, come down here!

1:30:221:30:25

Don't look like he's in.

1:30:271:30:29

I'll call the police. I'll call 'em right now...

1:30:291:30:31

No, you won't.

1:30:311:30:33

You know how I feel about the old bill, Pat.

1:30:351:30:37

They bring me out in a rash, and you wouldn't do that to an old mate, would you?

1:30:371:30:41

Hmm?

1:30:411:30:43

-Dad, I think maybe you should go and wait outside.

-Oh, do you?

1:30:431:30:46

So, one minute it's, "Hello Dad, I missed you,"

1:30:481:30:51

next minute, it's, "I think you should go and wait outside."

1:30:511:30:55

You're worse than her. You and your sister.

1:30:551:30:57

-Dad...

-Don't "Dad" me.

1:30:571:30:59

I ain't heard that word for three months.

1:30:591:31:01

It's been a relief.

1:31:011:31:03

Tan, I ain't going to move from here till I've seen Lauren.

1:31:131:31:17

What do you want? I ain't got no money.

1:31:231:31:26

Well, I can see that.

1:31:261:31:28

Otherwise you wouldn't be wearing this tat, would you? What's that?

1:31:281:31:32

'Bout half a quid down the market, is it? Hmm?

1:31:321:31:35

-What do you want?

-Nothing.

1:31:351:31:38

I don't want nothing. I just happened to be in the area,

1:31:381:31:41

saw you and thought it'd be nice to catch up.

1:31:411:31:44

Catch up? Me and you? Like that's going to happen.

1:31:441:31:47

You know, Pat, as the years go by,

1:31:471:31:50

old enemies take on a different hue,

1:31:501:31:53

d'ya know what I mean?

1:31:531:31:55

They begin to seem more like...

1:31:551:31:56

What's the word?

1:31:561:31:58

Old friends, old muckers.

1:31:591:32:02

See, loads of my mates are gone now.

1:32:031:32:05

Dead and buried.

1:32:051:32:08

Not many people left from the old days, is there?

1:32:081:32:11

Maybe if you'd been nicer to people, to your family.

1:32:111:32:14

Well, as you know, I've been away. Courtesy of Her Majesty.

1:32:151:32:19

Ten years does something to a man, Pat.

1:32:191:32:22

You'd be surprised.

1:32:221:32:24

You'd be surprised what I'm like now.

1:32:241:32:27

Why, I'm like a little angel now.

1:32:271:32:29

I've even got a pair of wings under this jacket. D'you want to see 'em?

1:32:291:32:33

You don't scare me.

1:32:331:32:35

Then why are you trembling?

1:32:381:32:41

Is that...? Oh, look!

1:32:481:32:50

Ain't she lovely?

1:32:501:32:53

Bianca, all grown up.

1:32:531:32:55

Carol's little girl, eh?

1:32:551:32:57

And David's.

1:32:571:32:59

-Carol's and David's.

-Old David?

1:33:001:33:03

He around too, is he?

1:33:031:33:05

Now, I'd like to see him.

1:33:061:33:09

I think I still owe him something, as far as I can remember.

1:33:091:33:13

I'd like to pay him back.

1:33:131:33:16

He... He don't live here. In fact, I don't see him any more.

1:33:171:33:22

Oh... Lost touch?

1:33:221:33:23

That's sad when that happens.

1:33:231:33:25

Well, if you do hear from him, you send him my regards, eh?

1:33:261:33:30

Tell him I haven't forgotten.

1:33:301:33:32

Tell him I'm a man who likes to pay his debts.

1:33:321:33:37

Who's this, eh? Is this the mechanic?

1:33:371:33:40

Derek.

1:33:481:33:49

-You got some explaining to do.

-What's he doing here?

1:33:521:33:54

He's just leaving. Now where were you?

1:33:541:33:57

-Maybe we should go upstairs.

-No. I want to know where you were, right now.

1:33:571:34:00

OK, well, I've been at the hospital, Mum.

1:34:001:34:03

-Yeah, that's right. I went looking for you.

-Lauren...

1:34:031:34:06

-But you weren't there.

-That's enough.

1:34:061:34:09

-What's she talking about?

-Nothing. I've had this flu,

1:34:091:34:11

and we thought it was something, but it wasn't,

1:34:111:34:14

and I've just been a little run down, I've let things go a little.

1:34:141:34:18

Is that it? That all you're going to say?

1:34:181:34:20

That's all I've got to say and so have you.

1:34:201:34:22

I've just been under the weather, that's all.

1:34:221:34:25

How can you go on lying? You're lying to them, you're lying to me.

1:34:251:34:28

-Lauren...

-Don't you care?

1:34:281:34:31

-Don't you even care what happens to you?

-I'm warning you.

1:34:311:34:34

Will you keep your mouth shut?

1:34:341:34:35

No, I can't. I just... I can't.

1:34:351:34:39

I warned you. I warned you!

1:34:421:34:44

Just get out.

1:34:451:34:47

Go on, get out. Get out of my house.

1:34:471:34:50

I don't want to see your face any more,

1:34:501:34:52

I don't want you anywhere near me.

1:34:521:34:53

-You, get here. Get upstairs.

-Leave her alone!

-No.

-Get off...

1:34:551:34:58

Tanya!

1:34:581:35:00

-You need to calm down.

-Don't you get involved.

1:35:001:35:03

In fact, all of you, get out. Abi, take her.

1:35:031:35:05

Take your Nan, and get out, get out, get out!

1:35:051:35:08

She's got cancer!

1:35:081:35:10

Mum's got cancer.

1:35:121:35:14

She's had it for months.

1:35:171:35:20

She's really, really sick.

1:35:201:35:22

1:35:271:35:29

Turn that music down.

MOBILE PHONE RINGS

1:35:351:35:37

What's got into you?

1:35:391:35:40

-Where'd Derek go?

-To see your brother.

1:35:401:35:44

Oi, don't just leave me here.

1:35:471:35:50

It's been a long time.

1:35:531:35:55

A long time since...

1:35:551:35:57

Well, since I've seen all of you.

1:35:581:36:01

I did try to keep in touch, from time to time. Wrote letters.

1:36:011:36:04

I even called. But you know what?

1:36:041:36:07

-I got no reply.

-Well, maybe it was my message to you, Derek.

1:36:071:36:09

Keep your nose out of my life.

1:36:091:36:11

You're still not hacked off about your wedding, are ya?

1:36:111:36:14

About your fella?

1:36:141:36:15

I thought he was long gone, from what I heard.

1:36:151:36:18

Yeah, see, Max has been filling me in on your love life.

1:36:181:36:21

Let me see, what did he tell me?

1:36:211:36:22

The last one was a pensioner,

1:36:221:36:24

the one before that a kid, teenager...

1:36:241:36:27

Black boy. Mind you, you always liked a bit of that.

1:36:271:36:29

The only reason I'm not kicking you out is Max. I need him to be here.

1:36:291:36:33

Only for a visit. Not to stay. See, Carol, he's with me now.

1:36:331:36:37

My compadre, yeah.

1:36:371:36:40

When I got out, things had changed. Weren't the same any more.

1:36:401:36:44

No respect.

1:36:441:36:45

Streets crawling with Lithuanians. Thought they were the boys.

1:36:451:36:48

Top dogs. But we showed 'em a thing or two, me and Max.

1:36:481:36:51

-Me and my brother.

-What have you done?

-Nothing.

1:36:511:36:54

Trying to earn a crust, like we all have to. Ain't that right, Pat? Tell me, what you charging now?

1:36:541:36:59

Not that I'm interested, I'm just curious. Is it in-calls or out-calls?

1:36:591:37:03

Or you just back on the streets?

1:37:031:37:06

-You think you're so clever, don't you?

-No.

1:37:061:37:08

No, I don't. But I will not be judged by ex-whores

1:37:081:37:12

and slappers who've had a bag of kids

1:37:121:37:14

by a bunch of different fathers.

1:37:141:37:16

I been away a long time, yeah.

1:37:181:37:21

But I've changed.

1:37:211:37:23

I'm a reformed character. Turned a new leaf over.

1:37:231:37:27

And all I want, all I would appreciate,

1:37:271:37:30

is a little bit of support, a little bit of loyalty,

1:37:301:37:32

from my own flesh and blood. Is that too much to ask, is it? Eh?

1:37:321:37:36

A little loyalty from my nearest and dearest when I'm down on my luck.

1:37:361:37:40

Is that too much to ask from my baby sister after all these years?

1:37:401:37:44

Yes.

1:37:451:37:46

-It's not as bad as what Lauren says.

-She's got cancer.

1:37:491:37:53

-Cervical cancer.

-How do you know?

1:37:531:37:56

She told me. She told me two months ago.

1:37:561:38:00

Two months?!

1:38:001:38:01

I didn't want you to worry, darling. I didn't want any of you worrying.

1:38:011:38:06

Could...could you die?

1:38:061:38:08

No. No, of course not. I'm OK.

1:38:081:38:10

I'm really OK.

1:38:111:38:13

-You got cancer, you ain't OK.

-It's in hand. I'm having treatment.

1:38:131:38:16

No, you're not. I been to the hospital, Mum. I know.

1:38:161:38:22

Know what?

1:38:221:38:24

She's stopped.

1:38:241:38:26

She was having chemo and radiotherapy, but she's just stopped.

1:38:261:38:29

-She's not even trying to get better.

-Is this true?

-Not exactly, no.

1:38:291:38:32

-They just told me, Mum.

-You had no right.

1:38:321:38:35

-You had no right going there.

-You lied to me.

1:38:351:38:38

It's none of your business what I do and what I don't.

1:38:381:38:42

I might be your mum, Lauren, but I am my own person.

1:38:421:38:44

-I've got a right to make my own decisions.

-OK. To what?

1:38:441:38:47

-Stop the treatment? The only thing keeping you alive?

-It doesn't always work.

1:38:471:38:51

You think things are really simple, but it's not. It doesn't always work.

1:38:511:38:55

Course it does. That's why they give it. It worked for that Siobhan,

1:38:551:38:59

-your mate. She's been on it for months.

-Siobhan's dead, Lauren.

1:38:591:39:02

She's dead. I went to go and have my chemo, she'd died of pneumonia.

1:39:021:39:06

That's what it did for her.

1:39:061:39:08

Why didn't you tell me?

1:39:101:39:12

I thought you and me, we got close. I thought you trusted me.

1:39:121:39:16

-I thought I was looking after you.

-Why? I told you not to.

1:39:161:39:20

I told you I didn't want that. The only thing I wanted,

1:39:221:39:26

the one thing I wanted was for you to keep your mouth shut,

1:39:261:39:29

but you couldn't, could you?

1:39:291:39:31

No, you had to go blabbing to all and sundry. Well done, Lauren(!)

1:39:311:39:34

-That's enough.

-Mum, what are you doing?

1:39:341:39:37

NONE of you, none of you understand.

1:39:371:39:41

She is worried about you. She is worried sick! Can you not see that?

1:39:411:39:45

No-one asked her to.

1:39:451:39:47

She is your daughter. I am your daughter.

1:39:471:39:50

Do we not have a right to be worried about you?

1:39:501:39:53

Do you think so little of us? Well, of me?

1:39:541:39:58

-Do you not trust me at all?

-It's not a matter of trust, Abi. It's not. It's...

1:40:011:40:05

I know what it's like to be the one that knows, right?

1:40:091:40:11

I know what it's like to be the kid worrying about the parent.

1:40:111:40:15

Believe me, darling, it is not very nice.

1:40:151:40:19

It's not very pretty. Well, you're going to find that out, now that she's told you.

1:40:191:40:23

-You're wrong. You're wrong.

-I'm not.

1:40:231:40:26

-Abi...

-I'm going to check on Lauren.

1:40:261:40:29

I don't know. Coming back... I don't know.

1:40:361:40:39

-Maybe they're better off without me.

-What, your kids are better off without their dad?

1:40:401:40:45

They sent me away, didn't they? They don't want me here.

1:40:451:40:49

They weren't singing and dancing to see me.

1:40:491:40:52

I know it's upsetting, but you got to toughen up, mate. They need you.

1:40:521:40:55

-Then I'll send for 'em.

-Where you going?

1:40:571:41:00

Manchester.

1:41:001:41:02

-Manchester?

-That's right. This is just a stop-over.

1:41:051:41:08

-Bit of luck, sis, you won't have to see me for another ten years.

-What about Max?

-Him too.

1:41:081:41:12

What is it they said in that old film, Pat?

1:41:121:41:14

-You should come up and see us some time.

-Wait, Derek.

1:41:141:41:17

Can't. Things to do, people to see.

1:41:171:41:19

-But Max needs to stay here, his kids are here.

-That right?

-Yes.

1:41:191:41:23

You know you really disappoint me, Carol, you really do.

1:41:231:41:26

Just like you did years ago.

1:41:261:41:28

if you'd have only listened to your big brother,

1:41:281:41:31

you'd be in a palace now.

1:41:311:41:32

Me round, Sunday lunch, carving. We could've been so close.

1:41:321:41:38

Disappointing, Carol. Very disappointing.

1:41:381:41:40

-And if you hadn't stuck your nose in, I might...

-Old times!

1:41:401:41:43

It is fun to talk 'em over, isn't it? Eh?

1:41:431:41:47

-Pat, it's been charming as always.

-Leave Max alone.

1:41:471:41:50

I can't.

1:41:531:41:54

He's my little brother, and he's in need.

1:41:541:41:58

You'd rather they'd have known for months, eh?

1:42:071:42:09

Worried sick about their mum, like me and Rai was as kids?

1:42:091:42:12

-Is that what you wanted?

-Least we didn't lie to you.

1:42:121:42:16

No, you shoved it in our faces, didn't you? Couldn't cope, so you dumped it on us.

1:42:161:42:19

You don't lie to your kids, your mum... You don't think I had a right to know?

1:42:191:42:23

What for?

1:42:231:42:25

Oh, would that have got you to move out? Is that what it would have taken?

1:42:261:42:30

-Cos I'm damn sure you wouldn't have stuck around to help.

-How d'you know?

1:42:301:42:33

Never even give me the chance. Me or Rainie.

1:42:331:42:36

-She's right, Tan.

-Oh, right.

1:42:361:42:37

Yeah, of course, Miss Self-obsessed here,

1:42:371:42:39

-she'd have been a lot of use(!)

-You're my sister. If you're ill, I've got a right to know.

1:42:391:42:44

What for, Rai? What? So you could help out round the house, like you do?

1:42:441:42:48

-Help with the children and money?

-You've never even given me a chance.

1:42:481:42:52

Not once. Even when Dad was ill, you never let me have a look in.

1:42:521:42:55

Wanted a look in, did you? Nursing a dying man? You'd have loved that(!)

1:42:551:42:58

A dying man? Your dad. Dying of cancer under your nose

1:42:581:43:02

and yet you are still stupid enough to stop your treatment.

1:43:021:43:06

It didn't do him any good, did it?

1:43:061:43:09

You've got three kids. You got responsibilities.

1:43:091:43:13

You don't get it, do you, Mum?

1:43:131:43:15

There is no perfect cure to cancer, all right?

1:43:151:43:18

You could do the radiotherapy,

1:43:181:43:20

you could do the chemotherapy, right? And it can still kill you.

1:43:201:43:23

You can think it's gone. And then bam -

1:43:231:43:26

it was just hiding and you're dead within a week.

1:43:261:43:28

Like my mate. Like Dad.

1:43:281:43:29

-He had a good innings, didn't suffer. Why do you harp on about it?

-Because I was there.

1:43:291:43:35

Every night, right till the end.

1:43:351:43:39

This ain't about him.

1:43:431:43:45

It's about you.

1:43:451:43:46

You don't know, Mum.

1:43:491:43:51

I do.

1:43:511:43:53

You don't know what it was like. How bad it got.

1:43:541:43:57

Week after week.

1:43:571:43:59

He had it quick in the end.

1:43:591:44:01

-He had a peaceful death.

-Peaceful?!

1:44:031:44:05

One minute he was there, next minute he was gone.

1:44:071:44:10

Why do you have to go on and on

1:44:101:44:14

about such a terrible thing?

1:44:141:44:16

Because he didn't just go, Mum.

1:44:171:44:20

What? What do you mean?

1:44:201:44:23

You wouldn't understand.

1:44:261:44:28

Try me. I might surprise you!

1:44:281:44:31

-I doubt that very much.

-Try me!

1:44:311:44:34

Dad...

1:44:381:44:40

Dad didn't just slip away.

1:44:441:44:47

He was in agony.

1:44:491:44:50

He was in pain from the minute he opened his eyes

1:44:501:44:53

to the minute he went to sleep.

1:44:531:44:54

In the end, the drugs...

1:44:541:44:56

-even the drugs couldn't stop it.

-So, what you saying?

1:44:561:44:59

So...

1:45:041:45:06

I had to help him. I HAD to help him.

1:45:091:45:12

Help him what?

1:45:121:45:13

I had to help him die.

1:45:191:45:21

What?

1:45:231:45:25

I killed him. I helped him. I helped him.

1:45:261:45:30

I helped my own father to die.

1:45:301:45:33

There, you wanted the truth and now you know,

1:45:361:45:38

now you know everything.

1:45:381:45:40

And now I'm going to pay for it.

1:45:401:45:41

I'm going to pay for what I done and I'll die like he did,

1:45:411:45:44

but there'll be no-one to help me.

1:45:441:45:46

I'm going to have to do it all by myself.

1:45:461:45:48

Tanya. Tanya...

1:45:481:45:50

Tell her that's not true. Listen...

1:45:521:45:55

Tell her you just said that to hurt her. Tanya.

1:45:571:46:02

It's true,

1:46:021:46:05

it's true. I'm sorry.

1:46:051:46:08

I'm...

1:46:081:46:09

Tan? Tanya?

1:46:091:46:12

Tanya!

1:46:121:46:14

What you going to do? Where you going?

1:46:141:46:17

Mum, do something!

1:46:181:46:21

Mum?

1:46:231:46:25

Mum, what're you doing in there?

1:46:301:46:32

Mum?

1:46:361:46:38

-Let's go and talk to Tanya.

-There he is.

1:46:401:46:45

-Where you been?

-Ciggies.

1:46:471:46:49

Jack.

1:46:511:46:52

Bruv.

1:46:521:46:54

Still keeping in trim, I see.

1:46:541:46:56

Don't need to. Got the genes, didn't I?

1:46:561:46:59

-Ponce.

-Plonker.

1:46:591:47:01

-You want to take me on, do you?

-Any time.

1:47:011:47:03

You big wuss, I'd knock you out any day of the week.

1:47:031:47:06

Jackie boy, Jackie boy, lovely to see you.

1:47:071:47:10

And you, mate.

1:47:101:47:12

Oi-oi, here she comes, look. Face like thunder.

1:47:121:47:15

What do you reckon, sis?

1:47:151:47:17

-The Branning brothers, back together after all these years.

-Beautiful(!)

1:47:171:47:21

-You all right?

-Yeah, yeah. I'm all right.

1:47:211:47:22

-You spoken to Tanya?

-Tried, yeah. Got a door in my face. Don't need that.

1:47:221:47:26

Oi, let's go to the pub, talk it through.

1:47:261:47:28

-Love to, Jack, but we got to scoot, ain't we, Max?

-Yeah.

-You can't leave.

1:47:281:47:32

Beautiful car. Bird. Open road. What's to stop us, eh?

1:47:321:47:35

-What about Tanya and the kids? Max?

-Hop in, Max.

1:47:351:47:39

-I'll call you.

-Max!

-Derek, let's go.

1:47:391:47:43

Oi!

1:47:431:47:44

-She ain't answering!

-Mum?

1:47:471:47:50

Go and get your dad.

1:47:501:47:52

Dad, Dad!

1:47:551:47:57

Dad! Dad!

1:47:571:48:00

-What, Lauren? What's wrong?

-It's Mum. You've got to come now, Dad.

1:48:031:48:07

I can't. Sorry. She don't want me around. Let's go.

1:48:071:48:10

She's got cancer.

1:48:101:48:13

She's got cancer, Dad.

1:48:131:48:14

She's had it for months and she's stopped having treatment.

1:48:141:48:18

Please.

1:48:181:48:20

Please. Please don't go, Dad.

1:48:201:48:22

I need your help.

1:48:241:48:26

Max, Max.

1:48:331:48:35

-Well, ain't he coming now?

-Course he's coming!

1:48:381:48:41

Jack, can I have a word?

1:48:451:48:48

Er, not now, Dot. We got a bit of family crisis on our hands.

1:48:481:48:52

She's upstairs. In the bathroom.

1:48:531:48:56

Go up.

1:48:561:48:58

Don't just stand there.

1:48:581:49:01

Do you really think this is a good idea?

1:49:081:49:11

Tan, it's me, it's Max.

1:49:171:49:18

Tan, can you open the door, please?

1:49:201:49:23

If you don't open this door, I'll kick it down. I mean it. Tan!

1:49:261:49:31

-Tan. Tan, what have you done?

-Get off me!

-Babe, have you taken these?

1:49:401:49:45

-Have you taken these?

-Why can't you just leave me alone? Get off me!

1:49:451:49:48

Make yourself sick. Make yourself sick!

1:49:481:49:50

-I haven't swallowed them!

-Dad!

1:49:501:49:51

It's all in hand. Just go downstairs, please.

1:49:551:49:58

What's happening? What did he say?

1:50:021:50:05

-He... He just told me to come down.

-Let's all go and sit in here.

1:50:051:50:11

Yeah, come on, Carol's right.

1:50:111:50:12

I thought everything was fine. Tanya, she's always been, you know, so capable. Such a good mother.

1:50:151:50:21

-Yeah, did for my mother, that.

-What?

1:50:211:50:23

-(MOUTHS) Cancer.

-Oh.

-She was a smoker too.

1:50:231:50:27

-Oh, I'm Derek, by the way.

-Derek who?

-Derek Branning.

1:50:271:50:31

You must be Jim's eldest boy. How do you do? Let me introduce myself.

1:50:311:50:35

My name is Dorothy.

1:50:351:50:36

-I'm your stepmother.

-Well, I'm charmed.

-Thank you.

1:50:361:50:40

Oh, allow me.

1:50:431:50:44

Oh, thank you.

1:50:461:50:48

Lauren says you're sick.

1:50:491:50:51

Says you got cancer.

1:50:541:50:56

-I don't wish to talk about it.

-Is she right? Is it true?

1:50:561:51:00

-What do you care?

-Have you got?

-Yes. I'm riddled with it.

1:51:001:51:03

-I'm serious.

-So am I. So am I.

1:51:031:51:06

It's like a little monster inside me. Just growing and spreading.

1:51:081:51:12

Yeah, but you been to the doctor, ain't you?

1:51:121:51:15

You been to hospital? Cos Lauren said you've been having treatment.

1:51:151:51:18

-What do you want from me?

-Lauren's crying her eyes out, begging me to come sort you out.

1:51:201:51:24

-Look at you. You're a mess!

-You're helping, are you?

1:51:241:51:29

This ain't you, Tan. I just want...

1:51:291:51:33

-..want you to...

-What?

1:51:331:51:35

For me to be well? Cos I'm not. I'm not well.

1:51:351:51:37

I've got cancer.

1:51:371:51:39

Just like my dad. There you go, I said it.

1:51:391:51:41

There you go, I've got cancer. Cancer. Cancer. You happy now?

1:51:411:51:44

I've accepted it. I am sick. Well done. Job done.

1:51:441:51:47

You got through to me.

1:51:471:51:48

-What type?

-Cervical. Cervical cancer.

1:51:541:51:57

They can sort that one out, can't they?

1:51:571:51:59

Just cos they've got doctors and hospitals and drugs and things don't mean they can cure it.

1:52:011:52:06

Just cos you see a doctor or get on a list, it doesn't guarantee anything.

1:52:071:52:11

-Has it advanced?

-Not getting any better.

1:52:131:52:17

Then how come you ain't getting treatment?!

1:52:181:52:21

-Because I decided against it.

-Why would you do that?

1:52:211:52:24

I just did. End of interrogation. End of conversation.

1:52:241:52:27

-Where you going?

-Why won't you leave me alone?! Who are you, anyway?

1:52:271:52:30

You're not my husband.

1:52:301:52:33

You're nothing. You are just someone who used to be in my life.

1:52:331:52:37

-And I'd like you to leave now.

-Where are you going, Tan?

1:52:371:52:40

Away from you, is that all right?

1:52:401:52:42

SHE PANTS

1:52:451:52:47

Why can't you just leave me alone? Why won't you just go away?

1:52:521:52:56

So how long you had it?

1:52:581:52:59

I don't know. A few months.

1:53:021:53:04

-A few months?

-Yes, about that.

1:53:061:53:09

-What, so you knew before I left?

-Um, no, I don't think so.

1:53:121:53:16

Is that it? What? You knew and you didn't say anything?

1:53:161:53:20

What would you have done, Max? What?

1:53:201:53:22

Stuck around? Is that it? Been a good and loyal friend?

1:53:221:53:25

Is that why you just changed your mind about us? That night?

1:53:251:53:28

-Is that why you told me it was over?

-No.

1:53:281:53:30

-You said you'd been at the doctor's with Oscar.

-I don't want to talk about this.

-Is that what happened?

1:53:321:53:37

What, so you found out then you just broke it off with me?

1:53:391:53:42

What difference does it make?

1:53:461:53:48

Why didn't you just tell me?

1:54:001:54:02

Cos I didn't want you around.

1:54:041:54:07

I didn't want to break up with Greg, and move in with you and have you lumbered with a dying woman.

1:54:121:54:16

-You've got a disease. Don't mean you're dying.

-Sick, all right. A sick woman, a sick woman.

1:54:161:54:21

I been around it, Max. I've seen what's it like.

1:54:211:54:24

A disease doesn't just destroy the body,

1:54:261:54:29

it rots a marriage as well.

1:54:291:54:31

It takes all that love and it turns it into politeness and resentment.

1:54:311:54:39

I've seen it. I've seen it with my mum and dad.

1:54:391:54:42

So you think I would have just run off and abandoned you?

1:54:431:54:46

No. I think you would have stuck it out. But I would have known, Max.

1:54:461:54:50

I'd have seen it in your eyes, that look. You'd have smiled at me, have driven me to the hospital,

1:54:501:54:55

and inside you'd have been going, "What have I done?

1:54:551:54:57

"One minute I'm romping round the bedroom with my ex,

1:54:571:55:00

"the next I'm lumbered with this diseased old cow." And then...

1:55:001:55:05

Then you'd have started looking around, wouldn't you?

1:55:051:55:08

Thinking about someone else.

1:55:081:55:10

You wouldn't have wanted me.

1:55:101:55:12

I was willing to throw everything up in the air again, take a risk.

1:55:141:55:19

All I wanted was to be with you.

1:55:191:55:21

Even if you'd ended up with an invalid on your hands?

1:55:241:55:27

-You wouldn't have been disgusted?

-Of course I wouldn't.

1:55:271:55:31

It takes months, a year, sometimes longer to go through treatment.

1:55:411:55:47

There's chemo, radiotherapy, and there are side effects.

1:55:491:55:53

I mean, you get to look like this.

1:55:531:55:58

You get to be scared and weepy,

1:55:581:56:02

and there's this horrible regime of drugs and you feel sick, you look sick, and exhausted,

1:56:021:56:09

and it's on your mind the whole time.

1:56:091:56:12

Even if you forget it, just for a minute, it's there, waiting to come back at you.

1:56:141:56:18

You go to bed at night, you're not thinking, "Oh, what shall I wear,

1:56:201:56:24

"That nice negligee that gets hubby excited?"

1:56:241:56:26

You're in your big thick pyjamas.

1:56:271:56:30

D'you want that?

1:56:311:56:33

D'you think you could love that?

1:56:341:56:36

Yeah.

1:56:381:56:39

You know, at least I would've liked to have been given a chance.

1:56:421:56:46

That's a chance I couldn't take, Max.

1:56:481:56:51

You're not a tender man, Max, you're not. You're not kind.

1:56:581:57:01

You're not the type of person that's like...

1:57:031:57:06

That's kind and patient and loving and who'd just be there

1:57:061:57:10

-with nothing but love in his heart. You're not.

-I've changed, ain't I?

1:57:101:57:14

-Everything that's happened, it's changed me.

-Yeah, right.

1:57:141:57:17

Three kids together. You don't think that means anything to me?

1:57:171:57:23

You don't think you should have taken a risk? Given me a chance?

1:57:231:57:26

No.

1:57:261:57:27

-You don't want to be vulnerable? It's selfish.

-Selfish?

1:57:281:57:31

You got three kids and people that love you.

1:57:311:57:33

Don't you think you should let them help?

1:57:331:57:36

And burden them, burden them all? No! What good would that do?

1:57:361:57:40

Who's that going to help, Max? Not them.

1:57:401:57:43

I know how it feels. I know what it does to you. And I won't have that for my kids.

1:57:431:57:49

I don't want that for anyone I love.

1:57:511:57:53

So you do love me?

1:57:581:58:00

This isn't about you, Max. This is about what happened to me. My dad.

1:58:031:58:08

This is what I...

1:58:081:58:10

-It's about what I did.

-You were Florence Nightingale. You did your best.

1:58:101:58:13

Babe, him dying weren't your fault.

1:58:151:58:19

What, you think it was?

1:58:191:58:21

She knows.

1:58:241:58:26

She knows what I did, don't you? She's going to make me pay for it.

1:58:281:58:32

Cora, please... just tell me what she's talking about?

1:58:341:58:38

I killed my dad. I helped him to die.

1:58:431:58:47

Max, I'd like a moment alone with my daughter. If you don't mind?

1:58:511:58:55

Yeah, I don't know. I don't know, Cora.

1:59:001:59:01

-I don't think that's a very good idea.

-Go on.

1:59:011:59:04

Nothing bad's going to happen. I promise.

1:59:061:59:08

Ain't you even going to look at me?

1:59:191:59:21

Is she OK?

1:59:301:59:31

Yeah.

1:59:331:59:34

-Yeah, I don't know, Lauren. Yeah, I think she is, yeah.

-Should we go up?

1:59:351:59:41

Don't go up, Abi, she's talking to your nan.

1:59:411:59:43

I'm glad you're back.

1:59:461:59:47

Are you?

1:59:531:59:54

Abi?

1:59:581:59:59

Girls, I'm sorry. Come here. Come here. Come on. I love ya.

2:00:022:00:06

-Why would you have done that?

-Cos he was in pain, Mum. He wanted me to.

2:00:102:00:16

-He asked me to.

-He would never have done that. Not William.

2:00:162:00:19

I knew him inside out. He was my husband.

2:00:192:00:23

-Did you really know him that well, Mum? In the end?

-I was there.

2:00:242:00:28

-I was around. You keep telling me I wasn't but I was.

-You weren't there, Mum.

2:00:282:00:32

You were out, you were working, you were out down the club.

2:00:322:00:36

Someone had to bring the money in. He wasn't going to, was he?

2:00:362:00:39

We had to eat. I had to put food on the table.

2:00:392:00:45

-And a bet on the horses.

-I never did that once your dad was ill!

2:00:452:00:51

-We used to find the stubs in the bin, Mum.

-Once or twice, maybe.

2:00:512:00:56

You don't criticise me. Not after what you've done.

2:00:562:01:00

So what? I was still a young woman

2:01:022:01:05

with a sick husband and a couple of kids.

2:01:052:01:07

I was scared out of my mind. A couple of drinks. The odd punt.

2:01:082:01:14

It got me through.

2:01:142:01:15

He didn't blame you.

2:01:182:01:19

He didn't.

2:01:212:01:23

My dad, he was the sweetest, kindest man that ever lived.

2:01:252:01:30

Used to make me feel like the most precious thing.

2:01:322:01:36

When he was dying I tried to make him feel the same. But it didn't work.

2:01:362:01:41

Being ill, Mum, it's hard.

2:01:442:01:46

It's gruelling, it's painful, and it's there all day, all night.

2:01:482:01:54

That's what I learnt.

2:01:552:01:57

Them long nights.

2:01:592:02:00

That's where I learnt what life was really about, Mum. By his bedside.

2:02:022:02:06

So you topped your father, then you lied to everyone when you got ill. That what you learnt?

2:02:062:02:13

I didn't "top" him, Mum!

2:02:142:02:17

Then what did you do? Tell me. I think I've got a right to know.

2:02:172:02:21

You were out.

2:02:262:02:28

He'd done this little drawing for you, you know, like he used to,

2:02:282:02:32

of the view from his window, on a little card.

2:02:322:02:35

Then he put it on the windowsill and I seen it and picked it up and looked at it and...

2:02:362:02:42

He'd written in it...

2:02:452:02:46

He'd written, "Thanks for being such a lovely wife."

2:02:492:02:53

And that's when he asked me to do it. He asked me to help him end it.

2:03:002:03:05

Put him out of his misery.

2:03:052:03:06

-And you just said yes?

-Of course not.

2:03:082:03:11

I fought with him and I begged him.

2:03:132:03:15

But he was just so sweet.

2:03:172:03:20

Cos he wasn't scared or angry. He was just...

2:03:202:03:25

..wrung dry, Mum.

2:03:282:03:31

So I got on the bed and we had a cuddle and, um...

2:03:352:03:39

He just held me like he used to when I was little.

2:03:392:03:43

But I could feel him, Mum. I could feel his arms and his ribs.

2:03:452:03:49

He was stick thin, weren't he?

2:03:492:03:51

He weren't like a man, it was...

2:03:542:03:57

There was hardly nothing left of him.

2:03:572:04:00

And I remember he put his arm round me

2:04:002:04:02

and I could see this vein in his wrist, just pulsing.

2:04:022:04:08

This bluey green vein and his white skin. It was just...

2:04:092:04:13

..like it was almost too much effort to pump the blood round.

2:04:152:04:19

Then I looked in his face and he didn't look scared.

2:04:242:04:28

Just had these kind eyes.

2:04:302:04:32

And I said I'd do it. I said I'd help him.

2:04:332:04:37

So I, uh... I put a pillow under his head,

2:04:432:04:48

and I made sure he was comfy and...

2:04:482:04:49

I gave him a little kiss on the cheek.

2:04:522:04:54

Then I gave him the drugs.

2:04:552:04:58

I did.

2:04:582:04:59

Way more than he should have had.

2:05:012:05:03

And, uh...

2:05:162:05:17

It was like nothing had happened.

2:05:182:05:22

I remember the lights.

2:05:242:05:26

I could see the lights from the flats opposite, just glittering.

2:05:272:05:32

And I sat there for hours, just holding his hand.

2:05:332:05:36

Then I fell asleep and...

2:05:422:05:45

..when I woke up, he'd gone.

2:05:472:05:49

What happened to the card?

2:05:532:05:55

I suddenly feel very old.

2:06:372:06:40

Very, very old.

2:06:422:06:43

I'm sorry, Mum.

2:06:472:06:49

No. No, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for being who I am.

2:06:492:06:55

Must've been a terrible burden for you, having me as a mother.

2:06:562:07:01

-He loved you. Right till the end.

-And I loved him in my own way.

2:07:032:07:10

I never loved anyone like I loved him.

2:07:102:07:14

And he DID love me.

2:07:182:07:20

He loved me for exactly who I was.

2:07:232:07:27

Never any criticism.

2:07:302:07:32

You couldn't make him up, your Dad.

2:07:342:07:36

He never said a cruel word.

2:07:392:07:41

Look at you.

2:07:462:07:49

A mother and a wife. With all this.

2:07:492:07:54

Look what you've become.

2:07:562:07:57

-Even lumbered with me, you're still a success.

-I'm not a success, Mum.

2:07:572:08:03

Course you are. Three kids. A man who loves you.

2:08:032:08:06

No, there's no man. I messed that up years ago.

2:08:062:08:10

Make no mistake. Max loves you.

2:08:102:08:13

He loves you right down to his fingernails.

2:08:132:08:17

For all his faults, he's the one for you.

2:08:172:08:19

And if you want, he'll be there for you.

2:08:192:08:22

Look, what we talked about, you don't mention it to anyone.

2:08:262:08:30

Put this away.

2:08:342:08:36

For safekeeping. I might like to look at it now and again.

2:08:362:08:39

I'll handle Rainie.

2:08:442:08:46

Where are you going, Mum?

2:08:482:08:50

Downstairs.

2:08:502:08:51

Come on, get up.

2:08:512:08:52

Straighten up.

2:08:552:08:57

Chin up.

2:08:582:09:00

Look at you.

2:09:022:09:04

Look at you.

2:09:092:09:10

Look how beautiful you are.

2:09:122:09:14

Your got your dad's eyes, girl.

2:09:152:09:17

He would've been proud of you.

2:09:182:09:20

He would.

2:09:202:09:22

As long as you do one thing.

2:09:222:09:23

What's that?

2:09:232:09:25

You fight this.

2:09:252:09:28

You go back to the hospital.

2:09:282:09:30

For your kids.

2:09:302:09:31

For me.

2:09:312:09:32

For yourself.

2:09:322:09:34

Will you do that?

2:09:342:09:37

Yeah, she's going to do that, Cora.

2:09:372:09:39

I'm going to make sure of it.

2:09:422:09:44

Listen to this man.

2:09:442:09:46

He knows what he's talking about.

2:09:462:09:48

Me and him.

2:09:482:09:50

We ain't leaving you for a minute, not till you're well,

2:09:502:09:55

up and about, giving us orders, telling me where to bin me fags.

2:09:552:10:00

Understand?

2:10:012:10:03

I ain't going to lose you an' all.

2:10:062:10:08

Don't let me down, Max.

2:10:142:10:15

I'm relying on you.

2:10:152:10:17

Well?

2:10:252:10:27

The girl needs to rest. We can talk to her tomorrow.

2:10:272:10:31

What about what she said?

2:10:312:10:33

You don't mention that to anyone. You hear me? It never happened.

2:10:332:10:37

But...

2:10:372:10:38

Shhh. I need a cigarette.

2:10:382:10:41

Nothing like a crisis to bring a family together, eh?

2:10:522:10:55

Yeah.

2:10:552:10:57

You know, I often think about our dalliance at Tanya's wedding.

2:10:592:11:04

How sweet that was.

2:11:042:11:06

I don't remember.

2:11:082:11:09

About time.

2:11:282:11:29

Right, now, take this.

2:11:322:11:34

Now, there's a bus station round the corner.

2:11:352:11:39

Go back to Leyton.

2:11:392:11:41

I thought we were going to Manchester.

2:11:412:11:43

Well, you thought wrong, didn't ya? Go on, on your way.

2:11:432:11:47

Move!

2:11:472:11:49

Derek.

2:11:512:11:53

What you doing? You going?

2:11:532:11:56

No. What gave you that idea?

2:11:562:11:58

I ain't going nowhere. Not till Max is sorted.

2:11:582:12:01

I got a responsibility, as the eldest.

2:12:012:12:03

Now we have gotta pull together and get our boy through this.

2:12:052:12:08

All together. Like a proper family.

2:12:082:12:10

The Brannings, together again at last, eh?

2:12:112:12:14

Yes? Yes? Come here.

2:12:142:12:17

It'll be like old times.

2:12:172:12:19

You OK?

2:12:272:12:28

What I said about my dad...

2:12:312:12:33

Nah, it'll keep.

2:12:342:12:36

We'll talk about it tomorrow.

2:12:362:12:38

-Tomorrow?

-Yeah. Or the day after that.

2:12:382:12:41

-What d'you mean?

-Well, it's like Cora says. I'm sticking around.

2:12:412:12:45

And you, madam, you're going to go back to the hospital.

2:12:472:12:51

We're going to get you well.

2:12:522:12:54

What about your friend? The blonde?

2:12:582:13:01

That's not my friend.

2:13:032:13:04

It's Derek's.

2:13:042:13:06

I ain't been near another woman.

2:13:082:13:11

Don't feel sorry for me, Max.

2:13:112:13:13

I don't.

2:13:152:13:17

I love you, Tanya.

2:13:272:13:28

I do, I love you.

2:13:312:13:32

Just like I always have.

2:13:322:13:34

If you'd told me, I never would have gone away.

2:13:352:13:38

I would have stuck by your side every minute of the day.

2:13:402:13:44

Out of duty?

2:13:442:13:46

Out of love.

2:13:462:13:47

You are as beautiful to me now as you ever have been.

2:13:552:13:59

-What, you don't you believe me?

-No.

2:14:032:14:05

I'm just so tired.

2:14:082:14:10

Well, lie down.

2:14:132:14:15

Go on. Just lie down.

2:14:172:14:19

What are you doing?

2:14:372:14:40

I'm lying down.

2:14:402:14:42

In my bed.

2:14:442:14:45

Next to my wife.

2:14:472:14:49

-I'm not your wife, though.

-Well, you are in here.

2:14:522:14:55

You never stopped being my wife.

2:14:572:14:59

Not for a minute.

2:14:592:15:00

Feels right, don't it?

2:15:052:15:07

Just you and me.

2:15:082:15:10

Why don't you lean on me?

2:15:132:15:16

Go on, lean on me. Go on. It's not that difficult.

2:15:162:15:19

How does that feel?

2:15:272:15:29

It's all right.

2:15:302:15:32

It's nice.

2:15:342:15:36

Feels good, don't it?

2:15:372:15:40

Feels good.

2:15:402:15:41

I ain't leaving you, ever.

2:15:442:15:46

Do you understand?

2:15:482:15:50

Even if you ask me to.

2:15:502:15:52

Then I won't ask.

2:15:552:15:58

What's that?

2:16:192:16:21

It's my wedding ring.

2:16:212:16:23

Never could bring myself to throw it away.

2:16:232:16:26

Don't look bad, does it?

2:16:292:16:31

Looks perfect.

2:16:332:16:34

Go to sleep, Tan.

2:16:382:16:39

I'm going to hold you all night.

2:16:412:16:44

Everything's going to be all right.

2:16:442:16:47

Is it?

2:16:482:16:50

Yeah, course.
