-What do you think you're doing?
-It's not how it looks.
-You should see the state in there!
-She threatened to kill our family!
You didn't mean it, did you, Mum?
Up you come. Come on. No bones broken.
-Maybe a big dry cleaning bill.
-Look at Dad, straight in there.
Let's go before he clocks us.
-Honestly, we didn't want this. She attacked Jack!
-Come on, Jodie.
-That's our home, Darren.
Come on, Jodie. Come and help your mum.
Let's get you away from here.
All right, it's all right.
Take a seat.
There you go.
Sorry it's not a glass one, but you didn't give me much notice.
-You got yourself a new prince already, Mum.
-She'll be all right.
-Just needs somewhere where you can get your breath back.
-There's the office at the car lot.
Maybe somewhere with a bathroom, so she can get cleaned up.
There's the B&B. I mean, it ain't no palace, but...
Perfect! Would you do me the honour?
Can you pack Mum some things? A change of clothes and her wash bag.
-What, you want me to go back in there?!
You did what you had to do.
That woman has lost everything. No matter what you think of her, none of this was her fault.
I've come to get a few things for Vanessa to change into.
Well, if I do it I'm bound to get it wrong, you know...being a bloke.
That's been there all day.
Well, we need a room.
Yeah. Have mine.
It's got towels in it. It's clean. Go on, just have a lie down.
Thank you. Both of you, you've been so kind.
It's the least we could do.
She'll be OK.
Imagine treating her like that.
Yeah, you don't know though, do you? Maybe she did threaten the kids.
-What was all that shouting outside?
-Didn't hear anything.
-Ryan! D'you want your cuppa up there or you coming down?
-Anyone would think you wanted someone to hear!
-What are you doing in my house?
-It's not your house.
Greg sold it cos you had an affair.
-Yep. Speak later.
She can't tell us what to do!
Don't even think of trying to tell me off after what you've done. You don't have the moral authority.
I got as much as I could. Few outfits. Change of underwear.
-What? Carol packed it! It's not like I went through her drawers.
You let Carol touch my things?
Go and lie down, Mum.
-I went back in that house of horrors for you and all you do is moan!
-How am I supposed to get all this upstairs!?
-Do it yourself!
I have to figure out where to live and how to pay for this wedding.
Got all your things, Mum. We can get you all done up now.
They'd never have done this if Max had been here.
He'd have killed 'em, he'd have stopped it.
He's not coming back, is he?
That's why they did it!
He's not coming back!
Don't think I didn't see you sneak in this afternoon.
That's one day's wages docked.
Maybe two if I don't cheer up.
Yeah, all right, but what do you reckon - Tanya or Vanessa?
You was all over her like a cheap suit just now!
Eddie, can I have a word?
Look, I'm sorry that you had to see that.
Michael? Do us a favour, go and see how Vanessa is.
Bit worried about her.
Why shouldn't me and Ryan be together? There aren't any kids involved.
-There are - YOU'RE a kid.
Even the law which, let's face it, is pretty down on anything fun,
-even the law says I can have sex!
Have you heard what's going on out there?
-Jack's chucked Vanessa out on the street!
-To move US in!
-I never asked him to do that.
Maybe Uncle Jack thought something needed doing before we end up on the street!
RAINIE: It's finished! Come see, quick!
-My greatest work!
-Now that is what I call a housewarming gift.
-This is all your fault, Mum.
I just need to get some air.
-Not now, Fiona.
Sorry, I didn't see you there.
Too many women in your life obviously!
I hope you don't think I'm weird popping in like this,
but it was so lovely meeting you and Bobby
at the swings yesterday. You mentioned the business
and I was passing... Oh, look at me rabbiting on!
It's fine, I don't mind at all, Rebecca. It's lovely to see you again.
-Maybe we should put off the wedding.
-Has your mum said anything?
No, but how's she going to stand there and watch us get married now?
And we can't even afford it anyway. Where are we sleeping tonight?
Don't even think about it.
-What does he want?!
-How should I know?
-Then why's he calling?
I cancelled the call, right. Leave it!
Look, you don't need him, Jode!
I'm going to find us somewhere!
How're you getting on? My room no good?
Plug socket was too far away from the mirror.
Honestly, how do you do your hair in the mornings?
You don't have to put on a brave face for me, you know.
I'll be out of your way soon.
You found somewhere, yeah?
Why did you tell me,
-about the bedsit?
-You needed to know.
What do you care what I need?
You've got a lovely dad there.
Made me wonder if I got you wrong.
Well, that depends what you thought of me in the first place.
I certainly didn't think you were one to fish for compliments.
Maybe I have low self-esteem issues.
-I think you wouldn't do what Max has done.
-Oh, I dunno.
I've kicked a few out in my time.
Yeah, but I bet you made it clear.
You didn't hide behind...
love and promises.
I bet those women knew exactly what they were getting.
..and it was never a place to stay.
drop the keys off at the gym when you're done, yeah?
Not that my patients are a trusted source of news,
but I hear things have been eventful.
Is that what you wanted to talk about?
Have you managed to book an appointment yet?
I've been trying...
Let's do it together. If we call them now, they'll see you by the end of the week.
By the end of the week?
I thought there'd be a waiting list, that's all you hear about.
With the abnormal cells we found, they'll want to perform a colposcopy and a biopsy as soon as possible.
Have you told anyone, your family?
-None of their business.
-Tanya, you need support.
-I'm fine. I'm fine.
You came here presumably because you wanted someone to talk to.
I don't know why I came.
If you want advice...
go back to your family. Tell them.
Let them help you.
The fat fryer's on the blink and I'm turning away customers. I haven't got have time for this.
I've been using the flat for storage. It's not in a fit state.
-I don't care, I just need a place!
-You can't afford the rent!
-Word travels fast. I've still got a job!
-That car lot won't survive without Max.
How long will Jodie work for Tanya? I need a better guarantor than that.
-I've got Vanessa!
-Are you OK, love?
I just need to find a place for me and my fiancee or she'll run off back to her dad!
Oh, you poor thing!
Yeah. Look, I tell you what, I'll try and get the stuff moved out later on and you go in it.
It won't be pretty or anything but it's a start, innit?
-You sure about that, Ian?
I'm not going to let you down, I'm good for the money.
Give us a call later, yeah.
He's a good lad. Just needs a helping hand.
You're so lovely, aren't you?
Forgive me saying this, but your wife...
she must have been a wonderful woman.
-what'd your mum say about us?
-You looking for the seal of approval?
I don't think you're quite what she had in mind for her little girl.
What you talking about? That's not what I mean. Will she tell Whitney?
-The way you're carrying on, she won't have to.
-Lauren, have I got the biggest surprise in the world ever.
We're going to Ayia Napa! I booked the tickets this morning!
Is that all I get? You know what, that's cool.
Cos Fat Boy would probably chew my arm off for it.
Babe, what's the matter?!
'Get some air, did you?'
I've put Rainie to bed. She's going to feel it tonight.
..cos I'm only going to say this once. You're a Cross.
Whatever's going on in your head,
you get up in the morning, put a smile on your face
and help your family.
Time's when I looked after you and your sister.
I was in so much pain my hand shook.
Are you sure you want to talk about parenting skills?
Listen! And listen good.
You've lost this house.
Everything's falling away from you like litter
in the wind. Your little games...
your little affairs... Park 'em!
Put a smile on your face
and get your family back together. Now!
-Have you seen Jodie?
-Only I can't get hold of her and she's been...
Shouldn't you be selling cars or something?
-You honestly expect to marry my daughter, you'll have to man up.
-Actually, I found us a pad.
I mean, it's not all signed off yet, but... it's the flat behind the chippy.
-A chippy flat?
At least I found us a place. I said I would and I did.
Aren't you the hero?
Oh, you won't be needing to stay with us, then? Take it you've found somewhere?
Look, you can tell Jodie I've sorted a place...
and you can tell her it's not much, but it's ours.
We can move in later.
Sleep well tonight.
-Really? Three days docked?
-Do you know,
I got home and I thought who the hell are you to make me feel bad about my family?
-You know nothing about what went on inside that house!
-We've got a live one.
-Do I look like the sort of person you want to have a laugh at?
..you look amazing!
Sorry for what happened today, darling. I let things get on top of me.
-Now, we need to take control of this...situation.
-I know you've got this wedding planned, but...
-Want me to put it off?
Let's just see what this flat's like that Darren's found.
-Darren's found us a place?
-I was stupid going for Max.
-Followed my heart. Woman of my age.
-But that's the point, isn't it?
Men are money, Jo-Jo.
You find one who can support you, then see if you can put up with his disgusting habits.
Don't be sad, my angel, we'll get through this.
Darren's a good man, Mum.
He'll do for now, but we need to set our sights higher.
I'm not going to end up with nothing.
Not while I can still pull off a Gucci dress.
'Yes, it is I...'
nominee torch bearer for the Olympic Games!
-Where there is darkness, I shall bring light!
-Not now, Fats.
-Hush your gums, man, I'm an Olympian here.
Oh...sorry. Sorry, babes. You can congratulate me later, yeah?
All right easy, easy! Easy, goodness!
They're just screw ups. One day me, Abi and Oscar will be gone and they'll still be sneaking around,
getting back together, breaking up, ad vominatum.
Oh, not another one. We're busy, mate, I'm sorry.
-I've decided we got off on the wrong foot.
-Such a loser.
-I was thinking more lovable rogue than loser.
-Sorry, what do you want?
-Same as everyone.
Contract with Man United, someone to invent chocolate that you can eat forever without getting fat...
and her phone number.
KNOCK AT DOOR
-I was just passing, I thought I'd pop in.
-I'm not feeling very well -
-sore throat, glands are up and everything...
-Well, you need someone to look after you!
No, I'm not a good patient.
I get very short tempered and grumpy.
I can handle that. You men are all the same when you're ill.
You sit in front of the telly eating crisps!
-What you need is a hot toddy and some vitamin C.
-Honestly, I'll be fine.
It's really nice of you to drop round, but I'll call you another day.
# ..Living it up while I'm going down
# Love in an elevator... #
-KNOCK AT DOOR
-I told you, I'm not well!
Oh, sorry, I didn't realise.
Rebecca! Hold on, hold on!
Rebecca, please just wait there! Sorry.
Sorry, I thought you were...
Nevermind. Main thing is you're here.
And you look lovely.
-Have I got this wrong?
-No. Not if you normally dress like that for dinner!
When you said we should make the most of the evening,
I thought you meant we'd clear out your flat...
for that poor boy today.
Is that not what you meant?
-I went to Ibiza once. Didn't care much for it.
-You went to Ibiza and you didn't have a laugh?
-Give me an afternoon on Camber Sands and a stick of rock any day!
-Are you actually about 40?
It is nice there though, ain't it? LAUREN SCOFFS
Went there when I was younger.
-We'll just jack Ayia Napa in, then?
-She's cheered up.
See my effect? Lovable rogue.
-Give us your phone number.
-Oh, just give it to him, Whitney, please.
What do you want?
The girls and Oscar are homeless, no-one knows where Max is, Tanya's off on one...
and in the middle of all of that
-Vanessa decides to destroy Jack's house.
-She sounds brilliant.
-I don't even know why I'm bothering.
Carol, don't go. Look...
Maybe I've been too judgemental.
Times I've given these two a good hiding.
Like when Anthony swapped your Atmos clock for a BMX! It weren't even a proper BMX,
-it was one of them German ones, a Sprick or something.
-I remember that! 1946 that clock was!
-I only had it a week.
-He actually thought you'd be pleased!
-And it was pink...
Yeah, I gave you what for.
Course I didn't throw them out on the street.
It just got out of hand.
..I had you up on a pedestal.
It was a shock, seeing you do something like that.
-Is anybody else about to die of embarrassment?
-You had me on a pedestal?
So high you'd need a parachute to get down.
That's it. Definitely dying of embarrassment!
-Well, maybe it's best I'm not on it any more. I'm just your normal...
But you're MY normal middle-aged harridan.
I'm not your anything, d'you remember?
Please, Lauren. Will you come home please and help me tidy up?
-I know you might think it doesn't matter, what with Greg selling the place to Janine,
-but I won't have my house looking like a dump.
-Bit late for keeping up appearances.
Was that all?
I made a mistake, all right.
Come home. I'll make it up to you and Abs, I promise I will.
You want to tidy up that house, be my guest.
But I was thinking of staying at Whitney's tonight.
I know I haven't been there for you this last day or so...
You can back date that to the first time you and dad starting lying to us.
-When was that, the first time you lied?
I just want to know the date when my pathetic mother started lying to her kids!
Oh, off you go. You're getting good at that!
-You shouldn't talk to your mum like that.
-Sorry, who are you again?
-He's right, Lauren.
Don't look at me like that because I know that you love your mum.
She knows that she's done wrong and she needs you...properly.
What are you doing here?
You scrub up well.
I'm locking up.
It's my third good deed of the day. I must be on the turn.
-So Eddie's not around, then?
No, he's down the boozer with his sons
trying to impress his new lady friend.
But then again, you already know that, didn't you?
You still need a place to live.
Let's have a drink.
-Tyler's secret stash.
-I don't want to drink with you!
You don't have to like me.
This is a good single malt.
So, I take it...
you are looking for a new cosy household
to sleep your way into?
You have no idea about me and my life.
Everyone knew why you were with Max - pretty low rent sugar daddy.
I left money to be with him!
And all along Tanya,
just dying to get rid of me.
You know behind all that..."family",
all that talk of love...
they hate each other.
They're just handcuffed together
by genes, by heritage.
They'd kill to be free of it
and they hated me because I was.
Well, you certainly are now. Just walk away.
That's exactly what I'm going to. I wanted to thank your dad first.
Oh, please! You think my family are any different from Max's?
-Eddie's a liar, and he keeps secrets, like everybody else.
-You're just jealous because he's loved.
That's a fair comment actually.
I am jealous. I'm jealous because I'm the outsider in my own family!
And I don't get jokes about pink BMXs and Atmos clocks!
-You've lost me.
-I'm jealous because I can't forgive him.
I can't forgive him for what he did.
Anthony and Tyler, they have a laugh about it.
And I can never be a part of that because I...can't...forgive.
What's he done that's so bad?
He destroyed my mother.
You want a roof over your head...
..take my dad's.
I'll pay you for it.
Well, that certainly beats dinner in a nice restaurant, doesn't it?
Don't moan. I've got most of the money.
Here we go...
I can get the rest tomorrow, I just can't get it all out in one go.
-Oh, Ian, you are a beautiful man!
Jode, I've got us a flat!
Oh, Darren, I love you!
You did that.
-There you go, what do you think?
Dad's just texted he's OK! He just needs some space for a bit.
Well, that's good, isn't it?
at least he's not dead.
So what now, then?
Well, I thought maybe you two could choose a DVD and I could bust open the hot chocolate.
-Girls night in, what do you think?
-How do we know you'll be here when we get back?
I'll never leave you.
Yeah, I thought you had this morning.
I moved back to Walford just to be with you.
Had to see your dad and that woman every day, just to be near you.
That's how much you mean to me.
So you still love him, then?
he's your dad.
I'll love him for that alone for the rest of his life.
Go on, darling, go and choose a DVD. Make it a good one.
Hello. I'd like to make an appointment, please, at the clinic.
You expect me to hurt him after what he did for me today?
I came here to thank him, not destroy him.
What choice have you got?
Where are you going to live again?
Look at you...
..you're on your uppers, girl.
Wrong side of 40...
..got no money...
..got no job.
I'm offering you security.
You move in with my dad...
you get money...
..you get a place to stay
and as a nice little bit of icing on your cake,
you get to turf Carol Jackson out on her ear, huh?
Just like she did to you.
What if I'm not as bitter as you?
No, you like the sound of that.
You've got hungry eyes.
Break his heart.
It's there for the taking.
And I'll see you right.
