It was weird. They just... It's crazy.
It's nice, though.
-Got to have a bit of attention once in a while, ain't you?
Let's go and have a cup of tea.
-And you actually spoke to Qadim?
-Yes. I wasn't exactly well received.
But we talked things through. And I'd expect Amira to be in touch very soon.
Oh, come on, that's great, isn't it?
What have I missed?
Yusef went to see Qadim for us.
-And it sounds like he might have actually got somewhere.
-Which is great, isn't it?
Yes, that's great.
Right, well, I'd better get back to work.
I read that if you stand at the bottom of a well and look up, yeah,
-you can actually see the stars, even in daylight.
-We should try it.
-We need to find a well first, don't we, bruv.
You know, sometimes I wonder if you two actually sprung from my loins.
-Did our father actually just talk about his loins?
-I think he did.
-All right, ladies?
-Mind if I join you?
-Pull up a chair. Join the celebration.
-Tyler's been confirmed as the missing link, has he?
Actually, we're celebrating ripping off little old ladies.
-Oi, oi? Keep your voice down, will you?
What you been up to?
Let's just say a little bit of gold landed in our lap,
-courtesy of Dot's new lodger.
-Right, there we go. Three specials.
Oh, and the same for Michael.
Yes, sir. Food to your liking, sir?
Between you and me, I don't come here for the food.
-Oh, is that right?
-Yes. I've got a bit of a thing for one of the staff.
-Shame. Marie's already spoken for.
You got owned! Sorry.
Shut up and eat your lunch,
otherwise I'll start talking about my loins again.
Right, here you go. Take that, and, yeah, I'm sure you'll be very happy.
All right, drive safe. Take care.
I thought I told you not to interfere in my family business.
I'm sorry, I thought it was great news.
If I acted out of turn, I apologise.
And I didn't want you to find out like that.
-Didn't want me to find out at all!
-I know you don't like it.
Nor do I. But if Syed and Christian want to get married, there's nothing you can do.
Syed's happiness is all that matters.
So I would very much appreciate it if you would stay out of matters that don't concern you.
Are you sure you're entitled to such a long dinner break on your first day?
Oh, yes, Dr Khan is very, very easy going.
Well, don't you go taking advantage of his good nature. Remember, you're only temporary.
-You've changed your tune.
-I may not be happy about you working there, but we need every penny we can get.
I wish I could help more. I've got nothing left to sell.
Let me buy you lunch, ladies.
-How charming of you.
-It can't be easy, living off a pension.
Still, at least you got the money from Dad. Keep you going for a bit.
200 quid? You've got to be joking, haven't you?
Oh, I heard they were worth a lot more than that.
But I don't know. I mean, I don't get involved in Dad's business. Beginner.
-What you doing down?
-What's it look like? Working.
-Yeah, I know, but you're supposed to be...
-No fuss, Alfie.
The barrel needs changing and we need some more mixers, OK?
Yes, love, what can I get you?
A pint, please.
Do you think Dr Khan will be all right
with you using your work computer for your personal purposes?
Yes. It'll be fine.
There's my candlesticks.
I think we should pay Mr Moon a little visit.
-Going somewhere, Mrs Cotton?
-No, just seeing these ladies out.
I think we're better off without her.
One smile and her legs turn to jelly.
Oh, Dr Khan, I replied to that drinks invitation you had for tomorrow afternoon.
I thought I told you not to bother.
I'm sorry, I must have misunderstood.
And I put you down for a plus one
in case you wanted to take someone along.
Why would you go to Yusef for help?
I didn't. He went to see Qadim off his own bat.
That's what he does! He ingratiates himself.
He worms his way in.
Makes people indebted to him.
-Why didn't you come to me? I'm still your father.
-I know. I'm sorry.
Amira was like a daughter to me.
I'm no happier about Yusef getting involved than you are.
But if it gets results, then that's all that matters.
-Oh, looks like trouble.
-Fiver on the old biddies.
Good afternoon, ladies, what can I do for you?
You can cut the flannel for a start.
You know why we're here. Your boy ripped me off.
-I gave you a good...
-I'm talking to the organ grinder, not the monkey.
What my friend means is that there has been a little misunderstanding.
The little misunderstanding being you ripped me off.
There's obviously been a misunderstanding. We're a reputable business.
We checked the price on the Internet.
Those candlesticks are worth a grand.
So if you know what's good for you, you'll give me what you owe me.
And don't think I'm scared of Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dumber there.
There's no need for that sort of talking, Cora.
I'm sure that Mr Moon here will rectify his mistake.
Well, you've put me in a very difficult position, ladies.
I'd like to help, I really would. But, as they say... "Buyer Beware".
You'd better beware unless you put this right.
I tell you what, I'll give you 200 quid extra...
as a gesture of goodwill.
I want what I'm owed.
Now, that's my final offer.
Take it or leave it.
-They're worth a lot more.
-Maybe they are. If I can find a buyer.
But I'd say that 500 is a fair price.
-Pleasure doing business with you, ladies.
-You are a highly disreputable man.
Don't think you've heard the last of this.
Oh, come on, Cora, it's over now.
Let us not stoop to their level.
I think that worked out quite well, considering.
I don't know what site they're looking at,
but those candlesticks are worth eight grand a pair!
All right, ladies?
-Ripped off any old biddies lately?
-You just missed the fireworks.
Yeah, Dot and her pit bull wanted more cash. Blasted Internet.
"You are a highly disreputable man."
-What happened then?
-He sent them packing, didn't he?
Yeah, and a few quid in their pocket to keep them quiet.
Yeah, so we can all sleep easy now.
Such a bleeding heart.
With the money we make from that sale,
we'll be able to pay off our creditors.
So, yeah, I'll sleep very well, thank you.
I didn't know we had any creditors!
Just one of life's little realities that I protect you from.
Come on, Tyler, let's load up.
Be good to have some extra cash floating around next week.
Michael, honestly, do you really think he's up to it?
Golden Boy? Yeah, course.
Don't tell anyone, but just to make sure, I've set him up with a right mug.
Anyone with a bit of extra cash, a bit of insider knowledge will make a killing.
Don't tell anyone, though. Keep it between us.
And Yusef has no right getting involved.
I agree, OK. And I made sure that he understood that.
And you haven't heard anything from Amira?
But if I did, if she were to get in contact, then...
..think there's a hope that there might be some kind of reconciliation?
I think that ship has sailed, Zee.
Yeah. Of course.
But you know, I don't want to see Syed getting hurt again.
What are you saying?
If Amira were to make contact, then is it the right thing to do to pass on her details to Syed?
Well, yes. Of course. If that's what Syed wants.
-And we want to make Syed happy, right?
And then there's Amira. I mean, she's the innocent party in all of this.
She should be free to move on with her life, shouldn't she?
Yeah. Just ignore me. I'm sorry, I don't know what I was thinking.
..there's so much going on and it came as such a shock to me, you know.
I could go and see Qadim if you like.
Save you having to go through all of this.
I can cope.
So it's 1900, silver, with a 15-jewel escapement movement.
-You know your stuff.
-It was Harry's pride and joy.
He used to bang on about it.
The movement's knackered, though.
That was Harry all over.
-I reckon it's worth a few hundred to the right buyer.
-So that's where I come in.
I thought with your contacts...
All right. Well, leave it with me. I'll see if I can get it working.
I'm sure we can come a mutually beneficial arrangement.
Ooh. I like the sound of that.
Tell you what, why don't you let me take you for a drink and we can discuss terms.
What would Carol say about that?
Well, I wasn't planning on inviting her.
Come on, it's just a drink.
-Or do you have to get Carol's permission to go out for a drink with a pal these days?
Maybe another time.
-And I'll let you know about the watch.
-I've got no more clients, so I'm going to head off.
-Everything all right?
-Yeah, yeah. Great.
-Yeah, great. Great. Great.
You are all right with me being here?
Yeah, yeah, course. Yeah, whatever Jack says, goes.
I dunno, just maybe...
Just try and fit in a bit.
Don't worry, love, I'll turn the camp dial down to a ten.
-See you later.
Ray. Hello, mate. Michael Moon.
Yeah, not bad, not bad. I need ring girls for next Tuesday.
Actually, Ray, can I call you back?
Something's come up.
Shut the door.
That does not look like the face of someone with good news.
Your father is one tough nut to crack.
That's not news I want to hear. Maybe I should find someone who's up to it.
I'm up to the job. It just might take a little longer than I thought.
-We don't have time.
-You can't rush it!
Look, I need Carol to dump him next week.
You need to up your game, lady.
..to be precise. Otherwise you don't get paid.
Oh, and Jodie, she gets married in a dress from a boot sale.
I don't like Mondays.
So you need to get back out there, don't you?
And do what I'm paying you to do.
Oh, and I'll be docking you for that watch an' all.
Hey, here he is.
-Looking good, champ. Looking good.
-Show us your guns.
-Thought I'd get some training in.
-Yeah, good man.
-Got to get in shape for the big day, right?
-Yeah, you're going to walk it.
-Yeah, we've got like four days left.
-You will be brilliant.
You sure I'm ready for this?
-The other geezer don't stand a chance, Ty.
-Come on, get in the game. Get in the game.
Excuse me, I've got to take this.
'Dr Kahn, your next patient is here.'
Send them through.
-All right, what you doing here?
-Getting my tickets for Tuesday.
-All set for the big day?
Yep, the other bloke don't stand a chance.
-How come your name's not on here?
-Weren't important enough to make a billing.
-It's only my second fight, innit?
-Dad wouldn't approve. Thinks I'm too hot-headed to be good.
-But Michael thinks otherwise?
Yeah. Yeah, he's been great.
He's fast-tracking my training. Pushing me and all that.
He said after I win this one, we can get some proper fights.
Like, licensed and that.
-You won't say anything to Dad, will you?
No. Course not.
-He has enough problems with his business and all that.
-You're a dark horse, ain't you?
-I shouldn't have said anything.
-Don't worry, your secret's safe. And congratulations.
-Congratulations? What are we celebrating?
-None of your business.
No, it's all right. Don't expect you to keep secrets from Alfie. Me and Sy, getting hitched.
Shut up! That's great news! It needs announcing.
Ladies and gentlemen... Ow. What do you do that for?
-It's supposed to be a secret.
-Sorry, mate, schtum.
No, it's just we've got to get a few things sorted, you know. Like Sy's divorce.
-Just a minor problem then(!)
-Yeah, I'm sure you'll sort it out.
You know, love conquers all. If you want to take a break and put your feet up...
I'd make sure I checked the paperwork if I were you.
Alfie tried to pull the "I'm divorced" stroke on me when we got married.
-Well, I was, technically, a little bit married, I suppose.
He got a fake registrar. Fake snow.
In fact, everything was fake.
No, no, sweetheart, not everything was fake.
You know, I should even probably get my ring checked over, make sure that's not fake and all.
KNOCK ON DOOR
-I wanted to apologise for earlier.
-There's really no need.
And also to hold out an olive branch.
I was wondering if you'd like to accompany me to a function tomorrow afternoon?
It's a tedious medical drinks thing and I'm committed to a "plus one"
and you'd be saving me from having to take my septuagenarian receptionist.
That sounds very interesting.
Why don't we go into the kitchen and we can discuss it over a cup of tea.
She called earlier.
I'm sorry. This is all my fault.
I was thinking of destroying it.
I suppose you think I'm awful.
I suppose you think that Masood's right, as well.
That I should tell Syed about this.
-Masood knows about this?
-Not that Amira got in contact, no.
So what are you going to do?
Er...I agree with Masood, you know, it's the right thing to do.
Syed is our son, after all.
He deserves to be happy, but...
..if I tell him...
then the wedding...
that could go ahead.
Then don't tell him.
-Maybe I was wrong for interfering. Maybe you were right.
Maybe this is what's best for Syed.
And if you believe it's the right thing to do for your family, then...
-And you wouldn't tell anyone?
-No-one need ever know.
I could probably do a deal on the catering. I've got a great idea,
how about I get two of those plastic bridegrooms and stick them on the cake?
Which part of "no fuss" do you not understand?
I know, but sometimes, people say one thing when they really mean another, don't they?
You know, Alfie, that is really sweet of you.
Once everything is sorted out, you'll be the first to know.
-See? Master of knowing what people are thinking.
-Is that right?
-It's a gift.
So what am I thinking?
-I don't know, I've used up all my powers for the day.
-What a surprise.
No, OK, I can do this.
OK. Make your mind go blank. That was quick.
Get on with it!
All right. You're thinking... Oh, I can't say that, you saucy mare,
not in public. What's the matter with you?
What am I really thinking? Concentrate really hard.
OK, all right.
You're thinking your husband is the best husband in the whole wide world.
See, I told you he was a fake.
No, I tell you what, I'm getting...
Ooh, all the powers are coming back to me all of a sudden...
I know what you're thinking.
You're thinking your husband is an inconsiderate fool, who's always putting his foot in it.
Even though he doesn't mean to.
And it ain't enough he knows he's really hurt you.
But deep down... he knows you'll forgive him.
Because you know how much he loves you.
And that you love him, too.
Looks like Nan's got competition after all!
Skiving off early?
I wish. Just off to get more stock.
Oh. Busy day?
Well, the motors are flying out. And the commission flying in.
How you getting on with your half of the cash?
Yep, it's all in hand.
-It's good to see you working so hard, Darren.
-Can't let Jodie down, can we?
No, we can't. So you do whatever it takes, right?
Well, within reason, obviously.
-Well, I'll catch you later.
I was just going to call you.
See if you wanted to go out for dinner later.
Oh, right, spend some of your ill-gotten gains?
Yeah, I've just had a interesting chat with Dot.
It's just business. It's nothing personal.
They're pensioners, Eddie.
And I'm a businessman.
-I need the proceeds of that sale to keep this place afloat.
-So that justifies what you did?
-We all have to make a living.
-Off the misfortune of others?
If needs be.
Right, well that gentleman act didn't last very long, did it?
Or is that just reserved for getting women in the back row of the cinema?
-I threw some extra cash at them, didn't I?
-Oh, right, well that is very big of you(!)
Look, it's all done and dusted. Just let me take you out for dinner.
-Do you seriously think I want to profit from your blood money?
-Now you're just overreacting.
Excuse me? I've just found out that the man I'm seeing is no better than a common thief.
-Watch what you're saying.
-If you pull any more stunts like that round here, you want to watch your back.
Oi. What you doing?
Painting the Sistine Chapel. What does it look like?
Listen, I want to thank you for letting it go the other night. I messed up.
You're a bigger person than me and I thank you for that,
cos I know that me and you, we'll get through this together.
You're still sleeping on the sofa.
What? No, hold on. But I thought...
-You thought what?
-Well, the way we were in the bar earlier.
Having a laugh and a joke. With Christian. Me and you.
-It's like the old magic, ain't it?
-It's called pretending, Alfie.
Pretending everything's all right.
-Kat, please. Oh...
-And that's exactly what we're going to do.
Pretend everything's all right.
Give the punters what they want.
The Kat and Alfie show.
So, come on, the next performance is about to start.
Everything going to plan?
Well, that depends. On what the plan is.
Unlicensed fights? Classy.
I suppose it's a coincidence this fight happens on the day you want Carol to dump Eddie.
Who are you - Miss Marple?
I do not want to get involved in anything illegal.
So you draw the line at the immoral, do you?
What do you call goading your brother into a fight he's not ready for?
Tyler can look after himself.
I've heard about these unlicensed fights. Less red tape. Less rules.
He could get seriously hurt.
Is that what you want?
For Tyler to get hurt?
Oh, you're sick.
What the hell are you playing at?
-Do you know what? Get someone else to play your games.
It's funny how dates stick...
..in the mind, don't you think?
I'll give you an example.
6th of July, 1989. My driving test.
I passed, first time.
10th of May, 1980.
West Ham won the cup. Trevor Brooking, header...
..as I recall.
13th of September...
The day my "beloved" dad killed my mother.
While Eddie was out getting hammered, my mum...
..was at home, eating sleeping pills.
Oh, she killed herself.
HE MAY AS WELL HAVE POURED THE PILLS DOWN HER NECK!
SHE DID IT BECAUSE OF HIM! BECAUSE OF HIM!
BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS! BECAUSE OF THE MAN HE IS!
BECAUSE OF THE EVIL PIECE OF SCUM...
..that he is.
13th of September.
Yeah. Clever girl.
And that's quite good, innit? It's quite fitting.
33 years of pain...
..about to come crashing home in one beautiful moment.
And you don't care who gets hurt in the process?
All that matters is that he suffers...
Oh, he suffers like I've suffered.
And if you...
..don't want to break Jodie's heart...
..then you'll do your bit.
