I could get used to this. Coffee in bed.
Babe, maybe we should start thinking about telling people.
It's still early days.
Don't you want people to know?
Yeah. I just don't want to jinx things.
BIANCA: Liam, your breakfast!
Tiff, will you get Liam?
-I'll get it.
-Excuse me. Bowl.
-The walking bus is here.
-The kids ready?
Yeah, more or less. Tiff, get ready. Morgan, can you get your shoes!
Thanks, Ray, I'm going to see my probation officer.
How's Liam doing?
He hasn't been out the house much since he got out the hospital.
I don't know what to do.
Listen, you know you can't force the kid into anything.
He's got to find his own way through this.
It's the only way he's going to move on.
I know, but I just want to stop worrying about him,
and things to be back to normal.
-What's happening, Liam?
-What you doing?
Thought I'd take 'em.
Is she going to move back in?
So you're staying here?
And...you don't mind me staying?
Aw, what happened here? Did Daddy miss your mouth?
I don't suppose I'll be doing this for much longer.
Can I just clarify a few things?
Janine's back, unfortunately for everybody.
But that doesn't mean that anything has changed.
You don't have to move out, Tyler.
And you, you've been there for Scarlett
when she patently hasn't and if anything, I need you more than ever.
Bye. See you tonight.
So what happens when Janine wants to see Scarlett?
We don't let her.
Billy, I'm back. I've tried you at home. We need to talk.
Call me when you get this.
Has she gone?
Liam, will you just text me when you've dropped them off? Yeah?
It's good that he wants to do it, means he's trying to deal with it.
Come on, Liam!
-Ray, will you go with him?
-How's that going to help?
Please? It'll help me. What if they're still out there?
Please, Ray, he won't even have to know you're there.
-Just keep your eye on him. Yeah?
-All right, Luce.
-Just about, yeah.
Oi, why're you limping?
I thought it was the marathon you're training for, not the Paralympics.
The marathon was yesterday.
Yeah. Four hours 39. Thanks.
He looked really exhausted when he finished.
Look, Joey, I'm really sorry.
It was just, my mum had me doing stuff at home.
I can't believe I missed that.
Really? I can. Can I have a coffee, please, Lucy? Thanks.
All right. Aw, you texting Jay?
I was trying to find something to do for Dad's birthday.
I just thought it would be nice to do something different
but Lauren didn't think Dad would be bothered. So...
Yeah, well, your dad's got a lot on at the moment.
Anyway, it's not his birthday for a while, is it?
Why don't you leave it, see how it goes?
And you know, you don't have to hide stuff like that from me,
he is your dad.
I'll see you later.
There you go.
Sorry, no, I don't do mopping.
But you do if you want head office to let you stay on.
That's £1.30, please.
She's missed a bit.
So you not teaching today then?
Lucky you. Nice, lazy day off.
Not really, I've still got loads of marking to do.
Oh, Tyler, Tyler! Just the man.
Yeah, I doubt it.
The boards outside my office, they need taking down.
I'll make it worth your while.
Michael, he is a great dad.
OK? And Scarlett, that little girl adores him.
You're not getting her back.
I've been leaving you messages. I'm back.
Well, forgive me if I don't hang out the banners.
Oh, come on. Can I take you for breakfast?
OK then, maybe lunch?
You don't just walk out on your family, Janine.
You left me and Lola high and dry. No word, no job, and no money.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, that's exactly what I want to talk to you about.
You getting your old job back.
You're too late.
So you're going to try and get pregnant for real.
And that's your get out of jail card?
He wants to go public with it.
Well, you better tell him the truth before it's too late.
Believe me, I know.
Have you seen how happy he is?
And he'll be really ecstatic when he finds out the truth.
Then I better make sure I deliver the truth he wants to hear.
Hey, here's my little man. You ready to spend the day with Daddy?
-I'll pick him up at lunch time.
Whenever you're ready, sweetheart. Come on, let's go!
-Say, "Hi, Roxy."
Look, I don't need a baby-sitter.
Come on, man, it's not like that, just...
Look, she's a mum, they worry, it's what they do.
Look, how about you helping me at the gym? Hmm?
I need to tidy up some stuff, there's a few quid in it for you.
Maybe we could have a little work-out.
Hey, it's got to be better than staying in that house all day.
Pops said if you came back round
I should just slam the door in your face.
So why didn't you?
Because I wanted to look you in the eye
when I told you what a horrible, selfish cow you are.
I've brought peace offerings.
This for Billy, well, for both of you really.
And a little something for Lexi.
Lexi? You being serious?
You know, if it's the wrong size I can always...
We had no jobs, we didn't have any money.
No nothing cos of you, Janine.
I'm sorry. That is why I've brought the envelope.
-I told Billy...
-She got taken off me. Lexi.
She got taken off me by Social Services
and now she lives round Phil's.
-Phil? Hang on, I don't understand.
-You know what, Janine, just get out.
No, I'm sorry. Look, I really didn't know.
And if you had? You'd have come back and made everything all right?
I don't know if I'd have been able to come back
and make everything all right but...
If I'd have known... No child should be kept from their mother.
I'm really sorry.
Tell Billy that I want to put things right.
Please? Tell him to come and see me.
I thought, I've got a while before I start work, go and see my man.
I thought I'd be on a nine-month ban, you being pregnant.
KNOCK ON DOOR
All right, Abs? Shouldn't you be at sixth form?
Uh, yeah. It's a study day.
I was talking to Mum and Lauren about your birthday.
Oh, right. That's a few weeks off yet.
-The big four-four.
-Yeah, all right.
Yeah, I was thinking we could do something,
just me and you, Lauren and Oscar.
Uh, yeah. Can we talk about it nearer the time, Abi?
Maybe we could all go for dinner.
To be honest, Abs, I can't see past next week so...
We'll sort something out.
But it's your birthday.
Yeah, but we aren't booking a cruise, are we?
Go see a movie or something.
I don't know why I'm bothering because Lauren doesn't want to know.
Abs, can we just see how things go?
Why's everyone being so weird about making plans?
Cos there's things, Abs. Just...stuff.
Kirsty. She's pregnant.
When you're done, if you fancy it, we could have a little work-out.
Do you even know it's yours?
Of course it's his.
Babe, can I just speak to her for a minute, please?
I said, when I was ready.
Can you just go?
Abs, we weren't going to say anything
till things were a bit more settled.
I know, I know it's come out of the blue.
But we'll be all right, won't we?
You'll always be my little girl, you know that, don't you?
And what will her little girl be?
Me, Lauren and Oscar, we're finished with now, are we?
Mum. You can't do this to her. You can't.
-When she finds out, she's...
-She already knows.
No, she doesn't.
Yes, she does. Lauren found out.
I've already spoke with your mum. She's OK.
I promise you, everything is going to be OK.
I am, I'm sorry...I'm sorry I didn't say anything sooner.
But this, this don't change things between us.
It already has.
And then he huffed and he puffed...
-I thought the yellow sock was Goldilocks?
-I think she got eaten by the wolf.
There isn't a wolf in Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
-There is now.
-Thank you, Tommy.
-Why are you huffing and puffing?
-Will you stop?!
-He's huffing and puffing
because he knows those socks came straight out the laundry basket.
-Thank you, Tommy.
-You are a good dad.
-Yeah, he is.
Now we are going to need to get a temporary office
until this one is up and running again.
I was thinking we could use the one at R&R.
You'll have to ask Sharon.
Sharon? I can do what I like, it's none of her business.
It is now. Phil gave her a slice.
Listen, when you popped round mine before, upsetting Lola,
you forgot this.
No, that's yours, I want you to keep it.
I don't want it.
There's plenty more where that came from.
That's your answer, is it, eh?
Wave some money about and make everything all right?
-I'm not for sale, Janine.
Oh, come on! This is stupid.
I didn't know about Lexi. I'm sorry...
I'm sorry! Oh, come back.
Just keep your balance, all right? That's it, just nice and easy.
All right, just put a bit more weight behind it.
Yeah, from your shoulders.
That's it, step into it. There you go.
Good. Good. That's it.
Whoa, whoa! OK, OK!
Calm down. Liam, calm down. Calm down, buddy!
I tell you what, your brother is growing up far too quick,
I've had to buy him a whole new wardrobe, nothing fits...
Why didn't you tell me about the baby?
Did Lauren tell you?
Your dad? He told you they were having it?
What does it matter who told me? You should have.
I don't know which is worse, the fact that Dad is having
a baby with that woman or everyone lying to me.
No, nobody's been lying to you.
Your dad loves you very much, we both do.
And he was probably just trying to wait for the right time.
Why are you being so OK about this?
Why...why didn't I see you being upset? I-I don't understand.
What can I do, Abs? He's with her now.
They can do what they like.
But he's our dad.
And he still loves you.
It's not right.
-He will love you, Abi...
-He's our dad, we are his family!
You stand there long enough, Janine,
and people'll think you're looking for work.
Oh, I'm sorry, am I on your patch?
Saved me knocking.
Hi! Hi! It's me, Mummy.
Hang on a minute, I don't feel very comfortable with this.
Is it all right if I just check with Michael first?
She's my daughter, I think I'm allowed to take her out.
Alice, take the child back inside, please.
First Kat and now Alice. Got yourself a proper little harem.
You can't just take Scarlett whenever you feel like it.
She's my daughter, Michael. I can do whatever I like.
You could have, once, but you chose to abandon her, as I recall.
What sort of mother does that?
THEY JEER Walford's local hero.
All right, lads. It's a gym, not a playground.
How you feeling, buddy?
Go get cleaned up.
-Ow! Alfie, be careful!
-Oh, my brave little soldier.
You don't need to go to hospital.
Next time, get your fingers quickly out the till
otherwise I'll chop 'em all off. You'll be fine!
Look who it is. Janine!
Kat said you and her weren't together and now I see why.
Oh, well done, you obviously got the edited version?
Oi, don't explain yourself to her.
It's true and, to be honest, I'm really not interested.
What I am interested in, however, is brandy.
Keep the change.
You back for good?
For good, for bad... Who knows?
Here you go.
SHE SIGHS AND MUTTERS
Oi, oi, I'll do the till, I'll do the till.
Step away from the till.
If I'd known Masood was going to stick his oar in,
I never would have said anything.
Yeah, well, no harm done. Steve can't have said anything.
And this Annette, is she all right?
Thinks she's a bit Miss High and Mighty but she's all right.
Ah, look, it's from Ray. "Top day. Home soon."
It's just different.
I don't want different, Jay. I want things the way they were.
I know, Abs, but it don't always work like that, does it?
Things change. I mean, look at us. We're really close, aren't we?
You tell me everything and I love being there for you
but it's not always been like that, has it?
And your mum, she probably thinks you don't tell her things any more.
You're not her little girl any more. Because you're not.
You're growing up.
And Kirsty having your dad's kid...
That's just something different as well.
It's not going to go away.
So you've got to decide,
do you fight it, or do you just let it be?
Janine. We've said all there is to say.
He's not letting me see her.
I know I've messed up.
It doesn't mean that I'm not a good mum.
But you did leave her.
And it's the biggest regret of my life.
And there isn't a second goes by that I don't miss my baby.
So why didn't you come back for her then?
Because he was there. And he twists everything. I know...
SHE CLEARS THROAT
..I'm hard work, I know that.
But if I'd have come back before, then he would've just turned
everything round and I would never have got my baby back.
Like you, Lola, that is all I want.
We're mums, and we want our babies back.
I can't do it on my own.
I can't, Billy. I need you.
I'm sorry. I shouldn't have come.
I just didn't know what else to do.
Back on the booze already.
No. Well, yeah. Replacing lost fluids, aren't I?
Joey. I'm sorry. There was stuff going on at home.
When isn't there with your family?
Look, I'm really sorry, what can I do to make it up to you?
I dunno, Lauren. Maybe, you know, be there yesterday?
Kirsty, I had to tell her.
Oi, skiver. Back to work, are you?
I thought we agreed, not yet.
She was bound to find out sooner or later.
I'm surprised Lauren hadn't told her already.
So that's Lauren, Abi... Who else knows?
-What? You told her?
She's fine with it. It's family, isn't it?
Oh, I see. So what does that make me? Am I family?
-Am I a Branning?
-Of course you are.
Course you are.
You, me and the bump.
-Is he behaving himself?
-Yeah, always does when he comes here.
That's cos you stuff him full of chocolate.
Why don't you stay for a drink?
He's in front of the telly with Amy watching. What is it?
Ice Age 74 or whatever it is.
She was in earlier.
Really? Well, don't feel you have to ban her on my account.
So. Large Scotch.
He's in the Vic.
Hey, what you done, robbed a bank or something?
-No, no, I've got a new job, haven't I?
He means old job.
No, no, there's more to it than that, more things to do,
I'm Executive Director of Operations.
Congratulations, sounds important.
Yeah, it is, it is. So, I was wondering, to celebrate,
whether you'd like to join me for a drink?
Nah, I got to get back to work.
Thanks, Billy, I'd love a drink.
Just had a word with Kat to see if it's OK
if Tommy stays with Amy and watches the DVD till the end.
Yeah. I think Amy would love that.
And by the way, in future, you don't have to ask.
You know, you could always put that on silent.
So, what, you going to be a regular at the gym now?
I don't know whose face it was you were pounding on that bag but...
You know it's always here if you want it. Right?
I need to go home.
Speak to your mum. Tell her about your day.
Don't start, please.
He's my dad and your baby is going to be my brother
or sister, whatever, so, um...congratulations.
Sorry...can I just have your attention for a second?
Kirsty, what you doing, babe? You don't have to do this.
Me and Max...
We're having a baby!
How about that, eh? Well done. Congratulations. Nice one.
Cheers, Alfie, cheers.
I don't know what she had for breakfast,
but every time she leant over it was like...
It was like little wafts, like the food recycling bin.
-No, stop it! Too much information!
-Here he is. You all right?
-Ray said you had a nice day.
See, all you needed was to get out and get a bit a fresh air.
-We just had lunch, you want some?
-No, I'm fine.
Right, well, there's plenty if you want it.
And then this fella walks in, like, maybe her husband or I dunno
if it was just someone...
So, what, you already knew, did you?
Lauren, why didn't you tell me, eh?
That's far more important than some stupid race, innit?
Honestly, babe, I mean it.
Know what I was thinking? Maybe, just maybe, that could be us.
Whoa, no, steady, Peroxide. No, that isn't going to happen.
No, listen, I don't, I don't mean it like that.
What I'm trying to say, I'm just, I'm low on the old soldiers.
So? It only takes one.
I know it only takes one, but he needs his mates behind him
to cheer him on.
OK. Well, it's worth a try, isn't it? Isn't it?
Michael, you've saved me a stamp.
I refuse to be drawn into any of your games,
there's nothing you can do.
Well, we'll see about that, shall we?
I'm going to go for sole residency.
It's all laid out in here for you, nice and clear.
I'm going to get Scarlett.
See you tomorrow morning, Billy, don't you be late.
Liam? I'm going back to the stall now.
Why don't you come and get some fresh air?
Come on, leave them for five minutes. Masood won't mind.
Come on. You coming or what?
Get your coat.
No-one thinks that, Tan.
Yeah, Max and Kirsty deserve each other.
Why don't I come round later, yeah, and we can have a girlie night in?
I've tried Jack, I've tried Dennis.
I give up. What is the new password?
And... And these are my very special samosas.
One bite of these...
-Don't mind if I do!
-Not so fast.
He can't keep his eyes off you. You could do worse.
-Let's face it, you have.
-Why don't you get back to the stall?
All right, Liam. How's the science going?
-Yeah. Stephen Hawking better watch out...
There's no fresh air in here, come on, outside and help me.
For someone with a 19% share in this business,
you've certainly been busy.
We should go for lunch. Catch up on what's been going on.
Maybe I can relieve you of some of this burden.
Simpsons? You've ordered from Simpsons?
-I told 'em we'd never do business with them again.
-I got a discount.
And you've cancelled the order for the mixers. We're on the last crate.
If you'd looked at the computer you'd have realised that.
If somebody hadn't changed the password...
I can't have any Tom, Dick or Harry looking at my files, can I?
I'm sure you've got nothing to hide.
Where are the accounts anyway?
I thought we did them at the end of each month?
We do. March has been a busier month than usual.
I was going to do 'em later today.
Great. When do you think they'll be ready?
-Shouldn't take me longer than an hour.
Well, tell them I'm busy. OK.
My executive director.
Can't get the staff.
Well, don't feel you have to stay, Janine.
I'll be back in two hours for those accounts.
I'm telling you, that Fargo's has gone to the dogs.
-I went last night with Denise.
No, really, the menu is an absolute joke.
Walford is crying out for a decent restaurant.
And you're going to open it!
No, I thought we already talked about this.
-What time you got to be there?
Look, it's just a poxy letter.
There's no way they'll hand Scarlett over to her. All right?
You got nothing to worry about.
I never worry.
-See you later.
-See you later.
Yes. These are my special samosas.
Right. Can you get them out the way, please?
-I made them for you. Try one.
-I really think you should try one.
-You saying I don't know my own mind?
-Cos it wouldn't be the first time you've decided you know
what's best for me, would it?
You need some mixers.
I'll tell Alfie to bring some over from the Vic.
No. That's not the point.
Our name'll be mud if we mess about suppliers
and bottom of the list when we need a favour.
I just wish I'd done them accounts yesterday.
Why did she have to come back today?
I've got to pick Denny up...
I'll pick him up.
-Yeah. And I'll have a word with Janine while I'm out.
-Tell her to back off.
-Don't you dare.
If she thinks I've come running to you, she'll never take me seriously.
I can handle it.
Bet you ain't sorted your colours, have you?
-Don't be. That's what I'm here for.
I usually leave that all to Mum.
Wants her space, I suppose.
Look, I'm sorry about that.
Don't be, I'm not.
Fancy a game?
I can't. I mean, I dunno...
I can take a hint.
No! I swear down. The Arches is madness today...
You know what?
Maybe I need my space.
Will you just hold them for a sec?
Can I go home now?
You've only just got here. You all right being out here?
No. People actually think I like these rank clothes.
-There she is. Go on then.
And take Jessie J with you.
# To fly-y-y-y. #
Shut up, Tiff, will you?
I'm singing. I don't need you to walk with me.
I ain't no loser, loser.
Where'd you get that?
None of your business.
If Mum finds out you've nicked it, she's going to go mental.
Yeah but I...
That's mine. Get off.
That's why it's got a name on it and it ain't yours, yeah?
They said they'd get you one if you wanted.
Who gave you this, Tiff?
I'm not messing around. You need to tell me now!
No, I don't.
Tiff, come back here now! Tiff!
And you say that your wife has made no attempt to contact you
or see her daughter until last week?
No. Seven months. Seven months, she hasn't been in contact.
She hasn't telephoned. No contact whatsoever.
She's shown no interest in speaking to me or seeing the child.
It's abnormal behaviour.
Um, can you think of any reasons why she stayed away?
Well...how long you got? You know.
It seems pretty straightforward to me.
You know, it's mad mother abandons child, father gets custody.
Residency cases are rarely that straightforward, Mr Moon.
I mean, your wife does have rights.
After the way she's behaved? Rights?
Yes. She's Scarlett's mother.
Denise agrees. I could really make something of this place.
No. I think Bobby was right the first time.
I've always found it's useful to have something to look forward to,
you know, after you've had a blip in life.
A project to focus on.
A few cardboard boxes and that'll feel just like home.
Only I thought you were over this whole Stig Of The Dump routine?
So the rumours are true? You're back.
And look, the whole of Walford's out to welcome you...not.
Don't deny it, Beale. I'm all your Christmases come at once!
Ignore her. You can achieve anything you want to.
You just have to follow your heart.
Jean! You got a minute?
What have I done?
Look, just tell me who gave it to you and then you can have it back.
Promise? You got to say it.
Stop shouting! I don't know her name. I don't!
So what, you haven't seen her about, no?
Nice people don't steal stuff and hang around outside school gates!
I like her.
She ain't bad. She don't see them boys no more.
The ones that mugged Tamwar.
You said I could have it back!
It's me. You need to come home.
Tiff, just get off!
It's what I advise all my clients.
Mediation is the best way to ensure that both parties get contact
with the child and have a satisfactory relationship.
Do you know what the best two words in child residency cases are?
You'd be surprised. It often works.
And what it means is you can come to an agreement about joint residence
without the expense of going to court.
Joint residence? I don't want joint residency.
I don't want my daughter anywhere near her.
I want my day in court. I want her judged.
Well, obviously you have that right.
But I'd strongly urge against it because it will be very expensive.
I mean, we're talking anything from a few thousand to 20 plus.
I mean, you know, the sky's the limit.
And it's not just the financial cost.
It's an emotional drain.
A court case like that - it could drag on for years.
I'll get the money.
You need to think about this, Mr Moon.
I have. Yes. It's very good.
Thank you, Mr Pike, for your expertise and your advice.
Hi. Where's Denny?
I just dropped him off at Tanya's.
She said he could stay for dinner, an' all, if you like?
Right. Where do you want me?
Yes. Or, your angel of mercy,
here to help out in your hour of need.
Um, Phil said you needed help with the accounts?
I'm perfectly capable of doing the accounts.
But you could do with an extra pair of hands.
You said you was up against it.
Alfie says I'm a whizz at doing the books.
Won't be a minute.
So, Janine's not the only one who doesn't think I'm up to the job.
Listen, you got half an hour to do the paperwork,
stock the shelves and sort out your contracts.
You really want me to send her back to the Vic?
HE CLEARS THROAT
It would help if you could spell, I suppose.
HE LAUGHS WEAKLY
Back to the drawing board.
Jack, can you call me? This is getting boring now.
You don't happen to know if there's damp, dry rot or mould or anything
on the adjoining wall with the Emporium, do you?
No. Why, you going to rent that place?
Looks like someone's beat you to it.
This is up for rent, though, if you're interested.
What, a zoo full of thugs on steroids?
Do I look like Phil Mitchell?
You think I was going to let Janine get one over on you?
I appreciate it. Jean is officially a godsend.
Nearly forgot. One of them teachers collared me.
Oh, right. The school trip.
Natural History Museum.
You've paid for it?
They said it was overdue. Dennis was getting a bit upset, so...
He's desperate to see the dinosaurs.
Jack told him all about 'em.
-Oi, oi, come on.
No, I keep letting him down.
Give yourself a break, will you?
We're on our own now. I'm all he's got.
Sharon, you're not on your own.
I mean it. You need anything,
you come to me, all right?
Sharon. Fonts. Any preference?
-No, no, I'm easy.
It's stolen, but she ain't done the stealing.
Tiff, come down here now!
I reckon it was Ali gave it to her.
Waited outside the school gates or something.
Who's Ali when he's at home?
She's a girl. She hangs round with Kane.
No, Liam. It's not them.
What would they want with Tiff?
They ain't gone, Mum.
Yes. They have, darling.
They've been texting me.
Don't read 'em all, though.
Why didn't you say something?
I didn't want you to worry.
Collateral, yeah, yeah.
And what would be the interest on that?
I've just chased some thieving toerag all the way up
Turpin Road with an armful of halter necks he nicked off the stall.
Bianca left the stall without telling you?
She got a phone call and scarpered.
She's all right, ain't she?
I'll find out in a minute.
Uh, I made a mistake on the board and I just had to come back.
It was niggling away.
The samosas didn't work
and I thought I might have a slice of that.
A really big one.
You can say that again.
Look, I'm sorry, Carol.
I shouldn't have waded in with my size nines. Tens, actually.
Nine and a half with slippers cos they stretch but...
I absolutely should not have interfered with you and Steve.
At least we agree on something.
Look, if I made anything difficult between you and Bianca...
No, no, no, you didn't. You didn't. It was something and nothing, OK?
And I know you were just trying to be helpful
but let me fight my own battles in future. Yeah?
So we have a future?
Well, we might do.
Maybe we could go out for a drink?
A drink? You and me?
Michael, just tell me what they said.
And don't lie to me.
Nothing. Everything's under control.
Right. That's that done.
Thanks. I thought you'd be back at the Arches by now?
Yeah. I'm fine, really.
I was talking to Dennis on the way home.
Do you still think it's a good idea you two living at Jack's?
It's what he wants.
I mean, I'm rattling round my house. There's plenty of room.
It don't make sense, does it?
You've only just got rid of us, you want us to move back in?
Yeah, I do.
Dot would have a field day.
"Jack's just gone and there she is shacking up with a new bloke."
Jack was a new bloke.
Anyway, who cares what anybody else thinks?
You know, it's about what you want.
That's what matters, Sharon.
You'll be all right.
Will I? I'm not so sure.
Course you will.
-Sharon, don't... Don't walk away.
-I can't, Phil.
-Not again. Please.
What you so scared of, eh? Tell me.
Jean. All done?
Didn't take long, did it?
Come on then.
Are you sure they didn't hurt you, Tiff?
She said I had nice hair.
Yeah, you have.
Is she in trouble?
No. Course not.
Why don't you two go and get some crisps?
Why didn't you say nothing, Liam?
You know you can tell me anything.
Kat said you'd disappeared. Bianca?
Mum, could you do me a favour
and just keep Tiff and Morgan out the way for me?
Just do it, yeah?
You all right, kids?
So what we going to do?
Call the Old Bill.
How many more do you reckon?
How many more chances do you think we're going to get?
Not too early, am I?
-No, perfect timing.
I've also e-mailed the accounts
-to you and sorted out the supplier mix up.
-There's not a lot you can teach me about running a bar.
I do have a few ideas of my own, though.
I thought we should target a more upscale market.
Why don't we go next door and bounce a few ideas around?
No time like the present.
It'll have to be some other time. I want to look at these -
make sure there are no mistakes.
Look, Phil, please.
You're the best friend I've got round here.
I don't want anything to spoil that.
We're not friends, Sharon.
We never have been and we never will be
because we both want more than that.
Which is why it goes pear-shaped.
Yeah, and have you ever asked yourself why? Eh?
Well, I'll tell you.
Because there's always been someone there to stick their oar in,
you know, to muck things up.
Now they're all gone.
So Jack's out the picture,
you think I'll jump straight into bed with you?
Come on, Sharon, this ain't about a quickie.
This ain't about trying to get you into bed.
I told you, I want you to move in with me.
Play happy families?
Ain't that what you want? Because that's...that's what I want.
Sharon, I love you.
I love you.
And we ain't going to get another chance like this.
I need you to tell me.
Do you want to make a go of this
or don't you?
Do you recognise anyone in these pictures, Tiffany?
And she's the one that gave you the MP3 player?
Come on, Tiff.
How long have they been sending you them texts, Liam?
I dunno. A week, maybe.
I didn't think they were going to go anywhere near Tiff.
You've done the right thing letting us know, Liam.
What about school? How can I send her back there,
knowing that they'll be waiting for her?
We've informed the head teacher. They'll have staff outside.
Plus we've got a couple of specials
that can be around there at home time.
Kane and his mates have been intimidating a witness.
When we find them, they'll be arrested.
What if I weren't here?
None of this would be happening. They know where we live.
Yeah, and there'll be Old Bill crawling all over the shop.
-Yeah, well, they won't be there all the time.
-Liam, don't worry.
What if I went and stayed with my dad?
Is that still an option?
I'm here to offer you first refusal on my share in the boxing gym.
That place is dead, bruv. No-one won't even go in there.
We have an exclusive clientele.
So why don't I draw up some figures for you,
show you the paperwork, you can mull it over?
How about you don't bother, yeah?
And you can sling your hook an' all.
Go on, go.
Liam, you haven't done anything wrong.
You're not the one who should be thinking about moving away.
This is my fault. This is all my fault and
it's only going to get worse.
Liam, we are going to pursue the people that did this to you.
Don't forget you can call us on the phone we gave you, any time.
See? You'll be safer here than you would at your dad's.
I think I'm going to leave you to discuss this.
I'll see you out.
As soon as we have any information, I'll be in touch.
You closed up the wash-house early then?
You can collect your laundry tomorrow.
-I know, but it's you I wanted to see.
Look, I wanted to say I'm sorry.
I mean, this beef between you and Mum, it's down to me, innit?
I mean, I shouldn't have pushed her.
And it's not even really beef, it's just...things.
It was dinner.
Mum don't like to be told.
She likes to do things in her own time.
Let me guess.
She don't want you to see me any more.
No, no, she's cool with that, Nan.
She's not that bad underneath all that fire.
So I'm stuck with you then?
Now we got that nonsense out the way, we got business.
I can't neglect my skills no more.
That's what I'm talking about.
You can't do this. You can't take Scarlett. It's not fair.
No court will allow it.
You sell nylon jeggings at the market
and suddenly you're qualified to give me legal advice.
He loves the bones of that kid.
I am her mother.
And you of all people should know what it's like to be
separated from your child.
You walked out on your daughter.
I did what was best.
Right. Well, do it now and let Michael keep her
because she doesn't even know you.
The sooner I get her away from him, the better.
You won't get her.
So, what, do you think I can't look after you, Liam?
I've been keeping you out of trouble since you were born.
Unlike your father.
Kane won't find me there.
At least this way he'll leave you lot alone.
Liam, Kane is a vicious thug but he ain't stupid.
He sets one foot in Walford and the police'll be on him like a rash.
No-one is going to hurt my kids.
Not while I'm still breathing, all right?
Maybe he should go.
I said no, Mum.
Liam belongs here with us.
This family sticks together, right? No matter what!
Is Liam leaving?
-We don't want him to.
-Course not. Come here.
Liam's staying right here. Ain't you, Liam?
Oh, Ian. You haven't seen, the Emporium's already been rented out.
Yeah, I had noticed.
Well, one set back. I'm sure there'll be many more.
Jean, Jean, I'm fine about it. In fact, I couldn't be happier.
No! You? You've rented the Emporium!
Shhh! Keep it quiet, all right? I haven't told Denise yet.
So you found the money for the deposit, then!
Um, it's all in hand.
I mean, I've got to dot the I's, cross the Ts and all that.
You need to get a new brief
cos this Norman Pike is talking rubbish.
Don't matter how many courts we go to.
Go to every one in the country. She'll still win.
Don't give up on this. You gotta fight it!
How? With what?
You're a smart bloke.
You'll think of something.
I'll see you later.
KNOCK ON DOOR
You wanted an answer?
You're looking good.
No, Liam. We're going to win this.
That pathetic gang are going to see, ain't they?
We're doing the right thing being positive. Getting back out there.
What, do they reckon that we were going to hide under
the bed for the rest of our lives, eh?
Is that who you are? No, Liam.
Cos we've got Old Bill driving past this house every five minutes.
-Cos you spoke out.
-I can't find my school shoes.
You showed the police them texts. That's who you are, Liam.
That's what swung this.
Even them thick little losers know that the Old Bill can
trace their mobile phones.
Renzo ain't thick. Look, I'm just saying, you know?
that if Renzo's the best you can do for a mate,
you must be one lonely, miserable kid.
I hate school.
Course you do. It's an hour out your life.
It's good innit, eh?
That your Head Of Year wants to catch up.
Look, it's good you can't be bothered. I can't be bothered.
It's normal, ain't it, eh?
It's about time this family got back to normal.
Come on, get your shoes on.
Otherwise I'll have to hold your hand all the way up to the gate.
No, you're not.
If you don't get them shoes on in five seconds,
I am going to make you give me
a kiss goodbye in the staff car park,
even though I am coming with you.
You're not normal.
I am normal. And you're normal. And enough's enough, ain't it?
One thing I DO know is,
you're never too big for one of Mummy's kisses!
Mwah, mwah, mmmmwah!
SMASHING AND SCREAMING
-You all right, darling?
Look, just stop this! Where are you?! Leave me alone! That's enough!
I can't take this any more! It's my family you're messing with now!
-Look I can't take it any more.
Now where are ya?! No, Mum, I can't take it!
Can you not do that, please?
She doesn't like strangers kissing her.
What's this, Michael? Point scoring?
I'm not a stranger, am I, sweetheart?
She doesn't like strangers kissing her.
Really? Thank you so much.
It's a really awful colour that on you, pink.
It brings out that skin thing you've got.
Isn't she lovely?
You don't mean that.
If you had your hair cut, you'd look like all the other boys.
Hey. You're going to love it here. We're going to be happy and settled.
It's lovely, isn't it? Come on, baby. I know you.
I liked Jack too, but...
Look. Give it your best shot, OK?
And don't forget to hold Uncle Phil's hand
when you cross the road, yeah?
There you go.
No. There must be something else. There must me some other way.
Mum, Dad. Courts, they're just years behind here, you know.
What they consistently fail to realise is it's not
the gender that's important.
It doesn't matter. It's what the parent does, you see, Alice, yeah?
I warned Janine.
Oh, right, yeah. Thank you very much.
Maybe I've got an allergy. Poppy's giving me a facial.
She doesn't listen? That's the thing, you see.
She doesn't retain the information
and that is why she made her own daughter cry.
Dad's allergic to chocolate.
Hello. Can you prioritise, please? What you doing?
There's nothing wrong with your face.
It's a perfectly clean, bearable face.
It's me, I'm the one that's been doing all the graft, 24/7.
-Except for when it's me and my bearable face.
Duly noted. So why then is everything stacked against us?
Why is everyone siding with her?
It can't happen.
Every week, regular as clockwork, even if
it means I go without a little something like a bubble bath,
I always put a little bit of money aside for little Lily.
That's amazing. It's wise.
-No, Jean, you're an example to people.
No, I'm being serious.
If more people took your approach, then we wouldn't be dealing with
this double dip recession and trying to bail out Greece!
I'm hardly Chancellor Of The Exchequer.
It's only a little bottle of bubble bath.
But those little bottles of bubble bath add up, don't they?
Yeah. See, now the estate agent I was talking to about an extension
on my down-payment as a long-term investment,
he didn't get it.
And he didn't get it because he hasn't got YOUR business acumen.
No, he was all... Insists, deposit £3,400, 6:00pm tonight.
Otherwise I lose the lease on the Emporium and my dream restaurant.
-And that'd be a crime, wouldn't it?
-Well, everyone has to have a dream.
Can I get you another tea? Coffee? Bacon sarnie?
Oh, no, I shouldn't be here. I've got a 12 dozen ploughman's platters to plate up.
Jean, it's not often you find someone that you can
share your dream with.
LAUGHING AND GIGGLING
HE CUTS THE CALL OFF
Who is that?
It was no-one.
-Who pays you?
-Because who do you work for?
So why are you carting Sharon's stuff over to Phil's?
Because she's moving in there.
Because Phil asked me to and I'm family.
All right, because sometimes I'm a bit of a muppet. I'll work through my lunch break, OK?!
Yes, you WILL work through your lunch break.
-At an affordable price.
Excellent, well done. If you want responsibility, Billy,
then you HAVE got to earn it.
If we all did things out of the kindness of our hearts,
what sort of a world would this be, huh?
-This is Janine's house.
-Yeah, yeah. Janine'll fix it(!)
Up the rent and then claim on then insurance.
And then when it's a bullet through the door
and not a brick through the window, what then, Bianca?!
Well someone's got to drag you back to the real world.
All this Pollyanna positive rubbish.
-Well, thank you, mother, I AM glad you're here(!)
Because you've got to ask yourself who's going to be paying next?!
I didn't even have time to put that kettle down! Did you see your daughter's face?!
They'll be long gone! They'll have chucked the brick and run.
A parting shot. That's what the Old Bill said. Well, as good as. It's not rubbish!
I am the one who just took your kids to school, lady!
I'm the one who spent ten minutes explaining to Mrs Dryden
why Morgan wouldn't hang up his book bag in the cloakroom
-until I'd checked it out.
-Well, thank you. You're a wonderful woman.
-And you're passing on your paranoia very nicely.
-Will you shut up and listen!
I don't think you've got a clue what you're actually doing here!
You DO have other kids!
And Ricky is Liam's Dad!
No! Asking Ricky to step up does not make you a failure!
-Oh, my God.
-Listen, Bianca, letting Liam choose to go away doesn't
mean that he will never come back.
Ricky left us! He had sex with Mandy and he walked out!
-I'm not talking about you two.
-And somehow, because he don't care
what's going on, then it's my fault?!
Don't you think that hurts Liam enough?!
-Let alone trying to chuck him out of his own house.
-We're not chucking him out!
Liam has been more of a man to this family than Ricky.
At least he's stood by me, Mum. Ain't he?
At least he's tried. I mean they...
They've nearly took him once already, all right?
I am NOT going to let THEM drive my son away.
They'll have to shoot me first before they ever hurt him again.
I don't know what I'm doing.
But I do know we do NOT give in to bullies.
Vicious little gangsters might be more appropriate.
And what about the next kid that the gang target?
They ain't all got useless daddies to run to.
We've got to stand our ground!
And we have got to get on with our lives!
And I really need you on my side, Mum.
I'm always on your side, you idiot. Come here.
TV IS ON
BIANCA: Yeah, all right. Thank you.
Liam, that was your Head Of Year on the phone. He's rescheduled.
Do you fancy helping me down the caff?
-Either that or flogging ladies leggings.
-We got a big hole in the kitchen.
So someone's got to wait here for the window guy to show up.
-I'm meeting him over the market.
-You can't stay here on your own, Liam.
I've already told Mum. The gang ain't stupid.
And you heard what the Old Bill said, right, parting shot?
And if word gets out that you've got an open house, you're going
-to come back to it empty.
-All right, well, I'll stay then.
-Look, no! I'm not a kid, all right?
I've already got the Old Bill outside baby-sitting me,
my own hot-line.
I can manage here for half an hour on my own.
No offence, but can you two just back off, yeah?
HE MUTES THE TV
Babe, don't be like that.
One of us has got to put bread on the table, ain't they?
-HOOVER STARTS IN THE CORRIDOR
-And earplugs in the ear holes.
Seriously, please, can you start thinking about eating more?
You could tell Tanya was pregnant with Oscar after about two weeks just by looking at her.
Fine. I ain't got a shift until tonight.
You can take me out for lunch and force-feed me.
-Sorry, I can't do lunch.
-Is it HER, is it?!
The earth mother.
Don't have to sneak off into a corner to get
hassled by your ex-Mrs, Max!
Babe, it ain't Tanya, all right? I've got a delivery over the car lot.
I've got people waiting for me. See you later.
HOOVERING CONTINUES OUTSIDE
I'm just waiting for the start of the next part of my life - something new, exciting.
Entrepreneur, OK? Entrepreneur. It's in my DNA.
Yes, well, Ian, mental health issues don't just fly away.
And stress can make the whole thing a whole lot worse,
I mean, believe me.
I know. I do. And I'm stronger now and with YOU, OK,
with you to guide me, to be there by my side...
I have been known to strike a very hard bargain with the bread man.
I am made for more than this.
I shouldn't be just covering for Marie when she has a hangover or when Carol has her latest crisis.
I should have people doing my washing up of my crockery for me, shouldn't I?!
I mean, I want to make Lucy proud and with you...
With you there as my financial...
Backer. AND events manager.
Because I know, Jean. I know it's you who REALLY runs that pub.
So what do you say?
Low. Very, very low.
Bribing me with your flattery and a bacon roll.
Little Lily needs those savings. And I haven't gone without bubble bath
just to fund some pie in the sky, pie shop on the Square!
Praising me as if you like me?!
I say no, Ian Beale, I say no!
-Janine may have all the money.
-Enough of that.
-I know her business is up and running and looking successful already.
-That's enough now, please.
-But, Michael, running off with Scarlett, leaving the country, that's insane.
-No, it isn't.
Insane would be climbing the tower of Big Ben specifically
with my knickers on over my trousers and waving a big daddy banner.
Insane is allowing that hopeless, selfish,
profoundly un-maternal woman to...
-Yeah, that's it. Toddlers.
See you later.
JEAN SIGHS HEAVILY AND SOBS
I've just got a bad feeling.
SHE LAUGHS You sound like Jean. You been reading your horoscope?
-We got a brick through the window.
This morning. Just sitting there. Glass everywhere.
Tiff and Morgan were there as well. I mean, what have they ever done?
-I didn't know! Bianca never told me!
-She thinks it's fine.
And the police reckon they've got it all under control but, you know,
Liam is back there on his own. and something's not right.
-It'll be OK.
-D'you know what, I'm going to go and check on him.
Cos if something happens, I'd never forgive myself.
Can you stay and look after the cafe for a couple of minutes?
Carol, stop worrying. He'll be all right.
-Has he got his phone?
If he needs you, he'll call you.
HOUSE PHONE RINGS
MOBILE AND HOUSE PHONES RING TOGETHER
KNOCK ON DOOR
-No, no, no.
Oh, it's dead!
-Thanks a lot.
-See you later.
He's just a horrible little man.
No, no. No, no. It's just I can't decide on a pickle.
And I really need to decide on a pickle for my ploughman's,
because there's people relying on me and it's important!
Have you forgotten that I've got previous in horrible little men?!
No. No, I've not forgotten.
-It's just, why do people have to keep playing games?
-Why can't they just be nice?!
It's like Michael Moon all over again with knobs on.
I told you, the word NICE to Beale means doormat!
Nice to arrogant, horrible little men like Ian is something
they wipe their feet with. You can't get back at them.
You can't beat them for being selfish, it's not worth it.
You remember, Jean, what goes around comes around.
PHIL: Anyone serving here or what?!
No! I'm busy! So bog off!
Good morning, sir. May I take your name, please?
Deirdre. Well, welcome to Butcher's Joints, Deirdre.
If you'd just like to take a seat over there next to Darth Vader.
No, I think I'll see her now.
Well, Ms Butcher will see you as soon as her schedule allows.
-Nah, I think I'll see her now, Billy.
MUSIC PLAYS THROUGH HEADPHONES
Look, stop! Stop!
I've already done this.
You're in. I did try you earlier.
-Are you all right?
-Yeah. Yeah. I'm good.
Um, we done this punctuation sheet last week.
Did. We DID the punctuation. And you're right. We did.
So, have to find something more challenging for you.
-I'll see what I can find.
-No, you're all right.
No. We have to build on this.
I tell you what, we could fit in a quick lesson.
I mean, I could pop over to the house, get a textbook
-if you've got time?
-If you want.
Don't worry. I saw you earlier.
You know, in the Square, with the brick and...
Seriously, you're doing good. Don't lose your nerve.
It takes guts to stand up to intimidation.
-Mind you, your private body guards
are probably helping sending out the message.
Don't worry. They know YOU ain't in the gang.
You're too old.
Yes. I've been waiting. It's a kitchen window.
EMERGENCY glass replacement, it says in the paper. No, it's fine.
It's fine. Don't suppose a little while longer's going to make any difference.
HE SCRAPES CAR ALONG THE TABLE
What do you want?
HE SCRAPES CAR ALONG THE TABLE
Whoa, whoa, whoa! I just want a word, blud.
See, the crew, yeah - well, Renzo, he thought, just...
Me and you...
A word between brothers.
You can give us that, yeah?
-Kirsty, just let me explain.
-No. No. I won't.
-Well, can I at least tell you what I was doing up there?
-No. Once a liar. Always a liar!
I propose we come to some sort of arrangement that's mutually beneficial.
And I hold all the cards.
Took you to a while to realise,
and I thought you were quite an intelligent man, Michael.
It's a point of principle and protocol. I mean, I'm on a tight deadline.
-And I think you'll find I was actually here first.
-"I was actually here first".
That's not very professional, is it? Haven't you got a toilet to go clean?
Oi, I am more professional than you're professional, Darth Vader.
Why don't you come to Toddlers with us?
Um, I've actually got a business meeting...
-Yeah, yeah, right, right. I get it, it's a big ask.
-It's outside your comfort zone, so...
Billy. You're in charge.
What, "in charge" in charge?
Yes, I said, you're in charge.
That's what she said. I'm in charge.
I don't just have him here for decoration, you know.
She don't just have me here for decorating, does she?
Impress me, Mr Vader.
All right, yeah. I went to talk to Tanya.
Maybe I should have told you. But there's a reason.
You know what? I ain't doing this. I can talk to whoever I want.
And you - you should trust me. You're having our baby.
You sure about that?
"Our", Max? It's ours?
How exactly do you think that's going to work?
You creeping off to the earth mother every time she calls!
She didn't call.
And you ain't doing it? Oh, you and me both.
..make up your mind.
You've just saved me a job.
All got a bit out of hand, didn't it, bruv?
But look, we don't need no more grief. Outside interfering.
None of us. And that mum of yours...
Wait! No, no, no. I'm not trying to mug her off or anything. It's just...
They don't get it, do they?
Ain't been there.
You do, don't you?
Loyalty... between brothers.
I know you understand.
We got to get this thing sorted.
Ain't we, yeah?
Come on, bruv, take a seat, man.
I ain't going to do anything.
If I was, I would have done it before.
Put the kettle on or something.
(IRISH ACCENT) "Manners don't cost a thing in this world."
Something my mum used to say.
So what, you really think you're going to be the first brother
to walk back across the estate, who's had a knife in his gut?
Be straight, will you, bruv?
My little cousin's got bigger scars than that. It's just...
It's just how it is. Brothers fight. And we move on.
Tighter...than we was before.
I don't understand what you want off me.
Yeah, you do.
Why is my dad never here when I actually need him?
Cos he's a fella. Does your dad do your accounts?
You're not that desperate.
He's all right. I've just seen him. He's smiling, he's fine.
-I thought you was looking out for the window bloke.
-Smiling. Know what that is?
When the corner of your mouth goes up.
You really want to have a party about that?
What, a surprise one?
Well, not exactly a party.
But when Jay clocks off, that's 150 hours of community service done and finished.
Yeah, OK. I'm up for it. I'm a bit skint at the minute,
but as long as Jay don't mind sharing my lemonade.
-Yes, it's a new start, ain't it? For Jay.
Got to start making an effort.
So I go down there.
Go down to the police station.
And I withdraw my statement.
..you ain't a grass no more,
and I swear down, bruv, I will spread it in the ends.
It's as simple as that.
Keeps you busy.
Great grandchildren keep you young.
Yeah, you do. You look well. I'll see you again. Bye bye.
You would make a rubbish detective, you know that?
Clip-clopping around in your high heels.
I heard you coming a mile off.
You should be wearing slippers...
..which you might as well put on, now you're home.
Babe, I had to go and see Tanya, didn't I?
It's just going to hit her hard. Us setting up home opposite her front door.
This morning, it was the letting agent on the phone.
Babe, I've had it in mind for months to do this.
Hello? I just thought I'd welcome you to your new...
You all right? What's the problem?
Problems? I never said anything about problems.
Urgent. You said it was urgent.
Yeah. It is urgent.
I wanted to see you in your convict gear one last time.
And then I wanted you to take it off... Yeah, the water's warm.
No one's in.
Yeah. Sounds great.
Yeah. OK. Excellent.
Oh. So I'll meet you in the Vic in 20 minutes, yeah?
OK. Don't be late.
# The wheels on the bus go round and round
# Round and round
# Round and round
# The wheels on the bus go round and round
# All day long
# The horn on the bus goes beep beep beep
# Beep beep beep
# Beep beep beep
# The horn on the bus goes beep beep beep
# All day long
# The wipers on the bus go swish swish swish
# Swish swish swish... #
We could do with a proper bed.
Bed? What you talking about?
You're so demanding.
Man at your age, you need all the exercise you can get.
Microwave, bigger fridge.
Curtains need changing.
And, um...I want a decent-sized flat screen.
There's a sale on the high street.
-I'll just call in before my shift.
-Nah, nah, nah.
Nah, that's it. You got the flat now. You ain't going out.
Barefoot and pregnant, that's you now.
-Yeah, it's hard being on your own.
-I can't remember the last time I had five minutes to myself.
I need an exact time. Yes, exact.
Because...because I've had an hole in my window.
I've been waiting all morning.
Well, you better do, otherwise I'm just going to go somewhere else.
Yeah, that was the only reason I stayed..
That and the free childcare. And because...
Tommy loves his dad, and I don't want to screw that up and all.
Yeah, well, one screw-up at a time, yeah?
Do you have to pay tax if you're skint?
Who's looking after your stall?
That's because Alfie ain't selfish. There's a big difference.
He's not an idiot that don't think things through.
-Oh, he is.
-Cos with Ricky, it's out of sight, out of mind.
He didn't come and visit me once when I was in prison. Not once.
What does that say to our kids, eh?
I'm going to make Liam a sandwich.
B, all parents let their kids down.
No, not if you don't give them the chance, they don't.
Just tell them it was a fight that got out of hand.
And the knife?
It was mine. I started it.
You know I've had Renzo actually trying to fight me
just to give you another chance.
Don't worry, he's all right.
Well, he will be.
So the police'll have to let Little Chris off.
No statement, no proof, no crime. You - back with the crew.
Our name up there. No...
No real harm done.
You can make it up to Little Chris.
We'll find you a little something.
You should know me by now, bruv. I'm on this t'ing.
I've got eyes and ears everywhere out there, yeah?
Ready to help you get to the station "safe".
You ain't stupid, are you?
Are you stupid?
The crew are going to be waiting for you, right?
Waiting for you to step up, yeah?
I ain't going to hold your hand, blud.
Someone's got to wait in for that little sister of yours.
Someone's got to "explain" to your mum exactly how it goes from now.
No. My house is like a prison.
-Little Chris knows all about...
-He stabbed me!
-You. You ain't my brother. And I ain't doing it.
-Here he is.
Well done, Jay.
Always been the same, Renzo.
No, no, no!
Oi! Get off! Get off me!
You do exactly what I say! Do you understand!
-Just get off me!
I will kill you before you ever touch any of my kids again!
Do you hear me? I will kill you!
You come near my family ever again or hurt my kids and I will kill you!
Do you understand me? Do you understand me?
He's had that coming for a long time.
HE BREATHES HEAVILY
Yeah. Police, please.
No, I loved it... It was brilliant, actually.
Seeing you singing the beep beep song,
waving your little arms about making absolutely no sense.
It's very entertaining.
-And who'd have thought? I didn't drop her on her head once,
or flush her down the loo or get myself all confused and try
and breast-feed the wrong baby.
What is next?
Indoor play-area this afternoon. And tomorrow.
And Toddler Gym on Monday.
She doesn't like her shoes put on in the buggy.
I am her mother, Michael. Get used to it, please.
So then it's swimming on Tuesday and sign and mime on Wednesday.
Oh, shush, shush, shush!
Scarly really doesn't like having her shoes put on in the buggy.
Thank you. So much.
And it's Scar-LETT. LETT.
Really not that difficult to say her full name, is it?
Now I've got an appointment over in Epping.
If you just inbox me her itinerary.
I am presuming the hired help can switch on a computer?
OK. Well, this obviously isn't working.
So I think that we should come to...
some sort of agreement.
That's a good idea.
Great looming pink pizza on my left.
Nasty. No wonder our daughter cries so much.
Least she's not stuck living on top of your father and Cruella.
I'll get it.
Thanks. Just a lemonade, please.
-Trace, can I get one lemonade?
-Actually, you know what. Can you stick a double vodka in there?
I'm proud of you.
Are you? How proud?
I like it. I like it very much.
Now, it was only by showing you the competition that
I could properly persuade you of the merits of my idea, OK?
Now take this ploughman's platter. Limp, lame - and where's the pickle?
Walford is crying out for a contemporary eating space
that's firmly rooted in the history of the area.
Crying buckets, mate. And look - where is my pickle?
It takes intelligent thinking, Billy, you know.
A small cash injection - rich, rich rewards.
Now obviously you've got the business acumen to see that.
Janine's going to thank you.
All right, deal.
-And when Janine comes out of her meeting, you can
see if she'll deal with you as well.
Cos I am 50% certain that Janine will say yes.
POLICE RADIO CRACKLES
Liam says all he wants is some nuggets.
If Liam wants to go away, or...
You know, something for him. An holiday, or whatever.
Don't mean he's never coming back, does it?
Liam loves his dad.
He loves his mum and his dad.
Yeah, like most kids out there.
Shut up and I'll tell you.
Do you not think you've had enough now, yeah?
Ooh! Who are you, eh? My father?
I thought you were broke.
This was meant to be your celebration.
It's all right, I don't care.
Cos if you are, You better hurry along.
Crack on with this one. Eh? The minute you get a chance.
The minute my back is turned, you'll be going on another little jogging date.
You do know, Abi?
Dad's, um...Dad's got a flat now, with Kirsty?
He's a very good "jogger", ain't he, Lucy?
See, that's what I mean.
I don't even know why I'm saying that because you already know, don't you?
Go on, why don't you - why don't you show this lot your six pack?
Go on. Go on, show them.
Lauren, just get off me, all right?
Yeah. Nice one, mate. Painting fences and all that.
-Bet you're glad it's done with, aren't you?
No, listen - listen, right. Heather Trott is all forgot, eh?
I actually hate you.
Lauren, you said you weren't drinking.
No. I'm not.
Lucy must have... Lucy spiked my lemonade.
-She must have put something in it.
-Lauren, you said - you promised me, Lauren,
that you would not have a drink.
Yeah, I know, but...
It's just a beer at lunchtime.
What, it's hardly going to kill me, is it, Joey?
Yeah. You know what, Lauren? That's it now. We're done now, Lauren. I've had enough.
I can't do this any more.
That's it. It's over.
Do you think he's changed? Be any different?
Well, you can only hope so.
But I think your dad wants to see you even more than you want to see him.
Whatever. I can get a train by myself.
Well, look, I can't find my trainers.
It's just a holiday, Mum.
I don't have to stay.
Just...see how it goes.
And you and Nan...
You're safe now.
You know where we are, anyway.
Well, I'll always be here, won't I?
Come here, darling. Take care.
-He don't need it any more. He's grown out of it.
