Babe, what happened to you?
I was getting worried about you.
Sorry, I got held up.
Oscar had an accident.
What sort of accident? Is he all right?
Yeah, sorry, he's fine, he's fine. He just fell over. Mum was with him.
-I just had to go to the doctor's, pick him up, that's all.
Right, well, I've boxed everything up.
-Do you want that drink?
You sure you're all right?
Yes, I'm fine. It's just doctors, innit? You know what I'm like.
You're not still upset because of the other day, are you?
You know, going back to your mum's?
-You're just stressed, aren't you? You're bound to be.
Finish your drink. Let's get it over with.
Like having your tooth pulled?
Babe, I'm as scared as you are, I am.
I feel sick.
But we don't have a choice, do we?
We're doing the right thing.
After tonight, we're all going to be together.
What if it's not that simple?
-What do you mean?
-What if things happen?
What do you mean? What things?
Things. Just things.
You know, things happen in life, don't they? People get sick.
They die. They get hit by a car.
Babe, I know this is difficult, but nothing's going to happen.
This is what we want, innit? You and me together again.
You're never going to look at me the way my mum used to look at my dad?
Not a shred of love in her eyes?
Course I ain't.
Babe, it's going to be fine.
It's not going to be fine. It's never going to be fine. I think maybe,
I think maybe this whole thing's a mistake.
What do you mean a mistake? What are you talking about?
-Tan, listen to me...
-Listen, we'll go over there,
we'll do the right thing in the right way, all right? We'll sit everyone down,
and explain how sorry we are. We never meant for it to happen, but we couldn't help it.
We love each other.
-And then, babe, we'll just deal with what happens. Together.
Babe, what do you mean no?
I don't want this any more. I don't want this.
I've changed my mind.
ROMANTIC MUSIC PLAYS
Hello? Er, no, she's not.
-Girls, have you seen your mum?
No, no, no. No they haven't.
Yeah, I'll pass it on. OK, bye. Bye.
-Who was that?
-Greg. Now go on, scoot, scoot!
Your dad will be back in a minute and I don't want anything to distract from the romance.
Go on, get out.
If you walk out that door, I'll go back now and I'll tell Vanessa everything.
I'll tell her it's over. I'll tell her I've been with you all this time.
You do what you want, Max.
What, and you think Greg's going to like that?
You think he's going to want you after that?
I'm not going to be with Greg.
-Babe, what are you talking about?
-I'm going to, um...
I'm going to go back and I'm going to tell Greg that I made a mistake.
We should never have got married. That we should be apart.
Yeah, then why can't we be together?
Listen... Listen, if I were you, I would just go back to Vanessa and forget about all of this.
I don't want Vanessa, babe. I want you.
Tan, please don't walk out that door.
Where have you been?
-I've been worried sick about you.
-Sorry, I got held up.
Come on. Look, I've packed for the pair of us.
I'm not sure which one of these are wrong.
Sure you're going to fit into them, darling?
Mum, could you just give me and Greg a minute, please? Alone. We need to talk.
Come on, Oscar.
FRONT DOOR OPENS
There you are.
-I was getting this close to getting really hacked off with you.
-It looks lovely.
-I try my best.
Right, come on let's take your jacket off.
Let's pretend you weren't late, like everything's perfect.
Hiya, Daddo. Did you want to speak to us?
Uh, yeah, I did, yeah. Can we do it in a minute?
I won't be long, all right? I promise.
All right, well, sit down. I'll serve.
Tada! Here we are.
Oh, ignore that lot. Me and Jodie got a bit carried away.
Just a bit of fun really. OK. Max?
-Bit of wine?
Yeah, that'd be great, but listen to me...
No buts, Max. I don't want any worries or negative thoughts.
I just want us to spend one hour together.
You know, really together. Bit of romance.
Right, well, tuck in.
Tell you the truth, babe, I'm not really hungry.
What you doing? Max?
What is it? What's wrong?
You're starting to really worry me now.
-What's happened? Tell me.
Please, I just...I don't think I can do this any more.
-This, all right.
Just this...carry on, you know. Just you and me. Just...
..just everything, you know, the whole...
the whole marriage thing.
What are you saying? Max?
Babe, I'm sorry.
I am. I'm really, really sorry, V.
I just don't love you.
It's us. You and me.
I've been having a really good think and I just...
wonder if we need a little time.
-A little time apart.
-Yeah, time alone. You and me.
-Just to think things through.
You've completely lost me.
We need to spend...
time apart to think about you and me?
You're lovely, you're a lovely woman, but you're just not for me.
I thought you wanted us to be together.
Married. I don't understand.
There is nothing to understand, V.
So, what you just... fell out of love with me?
I know it sounds horrible, but that's, you know, that's what's happened.
What and there's no-one else involved?
No. Like who?
-I don't know, you tell me.
-V, don't do this, please.
-There's no-one else involved.
I swear on Oscar's life, all right? I ain't been near anyone.
This does not make sense.
So you're just chucking me out for nothing, eh? Things aren't that bad.
I've just had enough, all right?
I should have said something before, but I didn't.
-You've had enough of what?
-What do you want me to say, V?
All of it!
Your mad cleaning! Your stupid wedding plans!
Your perfume! I just don't want any of it any more! Do you understand?!
It's over, V, all right? Accept it.
Right, so what am I supposed to do, eh?
-Just grab my daughter and slink off into the night?
-No, course you ain't.
Oh, right. You're going then, are you? Huh? I didn't think so.
-Can you just listen to me...
-No, you listen to me! I'm not going to take this!
-You cannot do this! NO! NO!
-Can you just calm down?!
-I know there's someone else involved! Who is it?! You tell me!
-Tell me her name!
-Dad, what's going on?
Babe, it's nothing for you to worry about. Can you just go back in the kitchen?
-He's breaking up with me! Your wonderful father is breaking up with me!
-V, don't do this, all right?!
Tell us her name. Go on. You want to be the big man, huh?
-You want to be honest? Tell us her name. Tell all of us.
It's nothing for you to worry about. Go back in the kitchen.
-Is this what I think?
-It's nothing to do with what you think it is.
-Whoa, whoa, what did you just say?
-She didn't say nothing!
-Dad, you promised!
-Promised? Promised what?
Lauren, I swear to you. Just get back in the kitchen.
-He's been seeing Mum. He's been sleeping with Mum. For months.
For months and months and he promised it was over. He promised.
V, I can explain, I can explain all of this.
-You and Tanya?
-It's not what it sounds like.
I love her, V.
We've got a lot to talk about, I can tell that,
-but that's why this holiday's come at the perfect time.
-Look, that's the taxi. Say goodbye to Oscar
and let's get out of here.
Listen, we can do our talking on the way there,
on the plane, in the hotel, in the sea if you really want.
Going somewhere are you? Holiday for two?
Sure you don't want to pack my fiance while you're at it?
You dirty little slag! You think you can get away with that, do you?!
You think you can sleep with my man and I won't take you in hand?!
-I hate you! I hate you!
-What do you think you're doing?!
-Get off her!
-I'm going to kill her!
-What's going on?!
-Has she not told you?
She's been sleeping with her ex.
With my fiance! For months and months they've been at it behind our backs, behind your back,
and tonight, he just dumped me, like I was a piece of trash,
-like I was nothing.
-Is this true?
-Tan! Well, is it true? You and him?
-Yes, her and him!
If you've been wondering why she's been a bit knackered in the bedroom, now you know.
Vanessa get out. Just get out!
What are you looking at skank?
Shut your mouth. Get her out of here.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
You all right, Oscar?
Hello. How you doing? You all right?
I think you'd better go.
Look, Tanya ain't to blame for this.
All right, I started it. I pushed her into it, all right, Greg.
Leave my house. Now.
I think you should go.
-I'll see you soon, OK?
-It's all right, darling. Come on.
She don't want to talk to you. Max!
If you know what's good for you, you will keep away.
-Do you mind Jodie, please?
-I don't think Mum's in the mood.
-Just get out will you? The pair of you.
Go to the Vic and order me a double vodka.
I'll be there in two minutes.
You say what you gotta say then get out.
Greg, where you going? No wait, Greg, please...
I'm going away.
On holiday. On my own.
-But, Greg, we should just talk things through, shouldn't we?
What's there to talk about?
You don't want me.
What's left to discuss?
Well, I don't know, just how you're feeling? Are you going to be OK?
OK? Well, no, I'm not.
-But I will be.
-Greg, I'm sorry.
Say goodbye to Oscar for me.
-Don't you want to do that yourself?
-No. You can explain.
Oh, please, Greg, at least say goodbye to Oscar. Please.
He loves you. I mean, you're...
you're like a dad to him.
Like ain't quite enough.
What have you done, Mum?
I mean, what were you thinking?
I just... I don't want to talk about this right now.
You lied to me.
You promised on your life. On your life, Mum. Don't you remember?
-Yeah, I do remember.
-And you don't feel bad about that?!
I feel sick about that now, Lauren!
Then why did you do it?
Was it, was it Dad again?
What, wouldn't he leave you alone? What was it?!
I can't talk... I'm really sorry, I can't talk about this.
Mum, please don't cry. Mum.
I'm so sorry, girls. I'm so sorry!
And I've let you down. I'm not fit to be a mother. I don't...
You deserve more, and I'm sorry.
No, Mum, don't say that. That's not even true.
I'm sorry, but it is.
OK, come on.
You need to go. You need to go home.
And I will talk to you tomorrow, all right? I promise I'll explain everything, I will.
It's going to be all right.
It is, babies. It's going to be fine.
As long as we stick together, yeah? Just like before.
And I promise you, I promise you,
I will never let you down again.
Come on, go home now.
It's fine. Go on.
It's going to be all right, Mum.
We're going to help you.
We're going to sort it out, OK?
Pleased with yourself?
Why am I always the one that gets left out? The last to know?
Yes, I know. And you're right,
but we gotta stop thinking about ourselves and think about Mum.
Mum? She's been lying to us.
Because he made her, Abi. He made her.
What are we going to do?
I know exactly what we're going to do.
Lauren. Lauren, what are you doing? Lauren?!
I just want you to remember, when I next step out of line.
What you did here, tonight, to Greg.
Who you don't even like. Look at you on your high horse.
Ever since our wedding day, you've been hinting he weren't right.
And I was spot on, wasn't I?
I know you, girl. I know what goes on up here and down there.
I know what makes you tick.
Oh, you know what makes me tick, do you?
You know me so well, don't you, Mum.
Well, go on then, tell me. Tell me what's going on right now?
In here, eh? What am I feeling now?
You can lash out all you like.
But you've done this. You.
You've done it to yourself and that little boy out there.
Whatever you may think of me, I never cheated on your father.
How do we know, Mum? You were never there, were you?
Always out, weren't you? Night after night, getting off your head!
We were there.
Left to pick up the pieces. It was me sat by his bed every night.
There to wipe the sweat off his face at three in the morning.
His last days, Mum. That was me.
Me. Where were you?!
The only time you ever spent at home, you couldn't even look him in the eye.
-You felt so much pity for him, you were so disgusted by him.
-I loved him.
You didn't love him.
Not in the end, Mum. You were disgusted by him.
You pitied him. That's what your love turned into.
I saw it, Mum.
I saw it.
And I will never forget.
I will never forget the look in that poor man's eye, withering away,
knowing that the love of his life just felt nothing but pity for him.
You don't know what you're talking about. You were just a kid.
I was 13 years old and I knew! I knew, and you knew I knew!
And that is why you can't wait to jump on my back
the minute I set a foot out of line!
You can tell any story you like, but this, all of this, it's down to you!
-V, where are you going? You can't just walk out.
-What, you want me to stay?
You want to make it up to me, hm?
No, I didn't think so.
You all right, girls?
-It's a mess.
It's a mess, it's all my fault.
Yeah, we know.
I don't want you blaming your mum.
We're were going to come back. We were going to talk about it calmly.
We were going to sort it all out, in a mature, responsible way.
Well, you did a good job of that, didn't you?
Greg's gone and Mum's in tears.
I'm going to go and talk to her, work it out.
The most important thing through all of this is that me and your mum, we love each other.
Look, I know this is horrible, I know it is. But it's gonna be worth it in the end,
because we'll all be together again, how we used to be...
-..before it all went wrong.
-Before you made it go wrong.
Well, yeah, yeah, before I made it go wrong.
Just like you're doing now.
-No, babe, this is different now.
-That's not what Mum said.
She didn't know what she thought. She was scared, but now all this has happened.
She doesn't want to know, Dad! And neither do we
And what's this?
It's a bag with your stuff in.
Clothes, shaving stuff.
There's some money. Anything we could find. It's all in there.
And where am I supposed to go?
Away from here. Away from the Square.
-What, just like that?
Yes. We don't want you!
We don't want you near us, near our mum, near our brother.
Because you ain't a proper dad.
You just hurt people.
You hurt us since we were little girls and we ain't going to take it any more. Are we?
Are we, Abi?
She's right. We don't want to know you any more, Dad.
We'd like you to just go, please.
Please, just for a bit.
Far away, so we can't even see you, so we can just forget about you.
Look, I'm going to talk to your Mum.
It's...it's going to be all right.
Don't forget your bag.
Can you just take it?
You think you can get rid of me? I'm going to stick around, whether you like it or not.
You messed up your life, girl, and I'm going to help you put it back together. Now dry your eyes.
You've got a kid out there needs looking after.
Oi, Max. Max, I don't think you should be here, do you?
-Everyone's well upset.
-I know, I just...
I just need to talk to her.
Come back tomorrow.
Cora, I can't do that, babe.
I need to talk to her now, please.
Don't upset her any more than she is already.
You can talk to her, and then you can go.
You shouldn't be here, Max. I mean it. You need to go.
What do you mean go. Go where?
Home. Just go home. Talk to the girls.
Well, seems like you've already done that.
-I'll set 'em straight tomorrow.
-No, I don't want you to.
This is all down to me. I know,
because I wouldn't give up on you, would I? I still can't.
-I love you, Tanya.
-I love you. I love you completely, totally, with everything.
Babe, look, you just got scared, didn't you? I dealt with it badly, I know, but we're here now.
Greg knows, Vanessa knows, so there's nothing to stop us, is there?
Babe, there's nothing to stop us being together, is there? Tell me.
-It's too late.
-What does that mean? Too late? What does that mean?
-Babe, what changed between this morning and now?
-I just can't.
So is that it? Are we over, yeah?
There's no chance?
The girls gave me that bag.
Told me to go.
They don't want me to be part of their lives.
I mean, is that right? Is that what you want? Do you want me to go?
No. I mean, you live here, this is your home.
You've got the kids here, business, family...
You're the only one that matters. Do you want me to stay?
-Well, stay for them.
-They don't want me to stay, do they?
Tanya, you tell me, you tell me that you don't love me.
And I swear, I swear I'll walk out the door and I won't come back.
Tell me. Go on. If you don't, then I'm going to stay.
And you and me, we're going to be together.
Just tell me, Tan, please? Tell me one way or the other, please.
I don't love you.
And you mean that?
I don't love you.
I'll go and... I won't bother you again.
