A goodbye would've been nice.
-How's my favourite prostitute?
How's my least favourite person?
So, today, Vanessa,
you and Eddie, yeah?
Or Jodie gets the message for real.
I thought it was all right.
Last night. I mean, better than all right.
-I'll call you.
-You don't have a phone, Eddie.
I'll call you.
Don't you think you should do some more research on him? I mean, study a video, look for his weaknesses,
-find out something about him?
-Boom! That, brother, is all I need.
So, you definitely going to win then?
-Dad didn't raise a loser, did he.
-See you later.
-See you later, mate.
Peter? You're not usually up this early.
You're going to have to speak up, sounds like you're underwater.
What d'you think?
You going swimming?
-Peter, I'll call you back, yeah.
tell me I've still got it.
-To the day.
-Minutes or years, it don't get easier.
Don't bring it up much, though.
You weren't around much.
Thought we could meet for a drink.
-Make a toast.
Let's do it now.
To death and suicide.
-You be all right, holding up these numbers? You good at maths?
What comes after...three?
If you need a hand with that, I'm good at maths.
And I bet I know exactly what figures you've got in mind.
Oi! Seriously, wouldn't go there.
Listen, thinking about having a little bet on Ty.
You can't pass up a sure thing, can ya?
There's no such thing as a sure thing, Anthony. Believe me.
This Artie bloke I'm fighting, what's he like?
Why, you worried?
-Anthony does the worrying, not me.
-He needs to relax, you'll walk it.
To be honest, I just want to know who to send the flowers to.
-That's fighting talk.
-Hey, pervs, you might be looking at the booty, but the booty ain't looking back. Ha!
-You just turn up and do what you do best.
You're right, I don't have a phone.
It's an anniversary.
Oh. Happy anniversary.
Happy? That's the last thing it is.
Sorry, I didn't mean to put my foot in it.
I can talk to you, right?
-You should know that by now.
My first wife, Maggie,
committed suicide 33 years ago today.
Found her at 9pm.
I know that because I could hear the clock striking.
Nine little chimes.
I should go. Tyler probably needs me.
This is a hug.
Where you hold on tight to someone, as tight as you can.
You can squeeze me back, I won't bite.
I wanted someone to do this to me when Billie died.
What happened with my wife was years ago.
Eddie, all you had to do was say.
No, not yet.
Don't vomit, but Jodie seems to think that her bridesmaids will look great in this.
-I think you'll look great in it.
-It's the colour of toilet paper.
-Faith? What you doing here?
-Got a little message for you.
This here is your annulment papers.
Know what annulment means, Fats?
It means you're no longer, like, hunk of the month.
Your band of gold. Won't be needing that now.
Right, OK, who are you?
Me? You are asking me who I am? Well, drink it in, sister!
I am Faith Olubunmni.
Wait, Mercy's sister?
Don't mention that name in my presence!
-So I can sell it.
-You can't do that.
Uh-oh, Bambi's giving me evils.
You're going to get more than evils if you carry on.
Fats, tell her to back down before I put her down.
-You and whose army?
-Hey, hey, come on, ladies.
What you looking so sad at? Should be jumping round the room, being shot of that loser.
Hey, that's enough, all right. I won't have none of that.
Run along, sister. Take your hair with you.
Yeah, and Fatboy's busy right now cos he's with me.
-Yes, you are.
Hey, hey, hey, that's my lunch!
When you get done with ugly, come find me.
She's lovely - we should so be friends with her.
So what you got in store for me, then?
Such a goof sometimes, Fats.
-HE MUMBLES NONSENSICALLY
We're going on holiday? Great!
Hardly a holiday. I called Peter back.
Him and Lucy have been in a car accident. They've been hurt,
-they're both pretty shook up.
-Send them a blanket each.
-I need to go down there, OK?
I need to look after them. I'm leaving as soon as I pick Bobby up from school.
-You'll have to wait, I've got the boxing.
-You're not coming.
What? Oh, you were just going to run off and leave me!
I won't be long.
Well, best you leave me the keys.
-No, I don't think so.
-I ain't sleeping on a bench.
-I like my house.
-What d'you think I'm going to do? Burn it down?
You hadn't even thought about me, had you?
My kids need me!
Tell you what - you go.
Just run off without a word. I'll do the same, all right?
Nice meeting you again and all that but, bye.
What you looking at?
Fancy your chances, do you?
No, they're doing up Number 3.
I'm just waiting to see who turns up.
Friend or foe.
Hold up, somebody's here.
-Got your message. What is it?
I was wondering if I could borrow 50 quid.
-Is that it?
There's 60 there. Keep it.
-Long as you spend it on something nice.
I'm going away for a little bit, just wanted to buy some clothes.
Just saw Ian packing his car. Tell me it ain't with him.
Behave. No, it's Eddie.
Yeah. That's what couples do.
-Just don't come back married, will you?
-Don't want to be best man, then?
It ain't going to happen.
What on earth are you doing here?
What d'you think I'm doing? I'm moving in.
-I can't find your dad.
-I've looked everywhere.
-Maybe I should ring Jodie, have a word.
-I'm not what you think I am.
-Oh, yes, you are.
You can go away now.
About the fight...
Tyler's definitely - I mean, definitely - going to win?
-Yeah. Cast iron.
-That's it, I'm backing Ty, then.
Good boy. Licence to print money, that is.
Creditors are chasing Dad, it'd help us out a lot.
He'd love you for that.
Definitely. You'd be his golden boy.
-Are these silk?
-Like me, smooth as.
They're going to need a special hand-wash.
You coming tonight?
Get you a ringside seat.
Dunno. Never been to a boxing match before.
Anyway, not sure I can turn up on my own.
It's not like I've got anyone to go with.
You must have someone. Everyone's got someone.
Not sure I'm most blokes' cup of tea.
Heather. Let me tell you something, and I want you to always remember this.
There is not a single woman on this planet who doesn't have something beautiful about them.
And there it is. The smile.
-That big, lovely smile.
-Stop it, I'll ruin your shorts if I'm not careful.
Look, Jay, it's the dead man walking.
-You going to win tonight? Going to put him on his back?
-Course I am.
-Phil reckons you're not a proper fighter.
-Says you won't last a minute.
-You tell him he can step in the ring after,
-then we'll see who lasts longest, eh?
-You do know who my dad is, right?
-What time does it start?
-9pm on the dot.
-If you're going, I'll come with you.
Thing is, Hev, me and Ben, we was going to do the man thing. No babes allowed.
You two want to get in, you take my good friend here. You got that?
You all right, bob-a-job?
There you go, make sure you don't spill it.
-Thought you'd be long gone by now.
Getting my stuff.
There's always the B & B.
How am I going to pay for that?
-I'll lend you the money.
-Knowing you, there'll be interest.
I want a stick of rock bringing back.
I'll see you when I see you.
Oi, Munchkin! Give us a kiss.
Make sure your dad drives carefully. Don't want you all in plaster.
-Carol's my sister.
Just you remember that. Any trouble from you and I'll come looking.
Seriously, people have come looking for me before
and it never turns out well.
You're a hard man to find.
Been sorting things out. Travel arrangements.
I must've been a good girl the other night after all. Where we going?
Sorry, all the seats are taken.
This about Tyler?
-Only I didn't mean to upset you.
-No, no, I'm over that.
Listen, ever since...you know.
-I can't stop thinking about you!
You're gorgeous, right. Lovely.
Any man's dream. But not mine.
But I want to be.
I'm with someone else.
And she doesn't know. Not really.
In fact, neither did I, until now.
But when you came on to me...
she was all I could think about.
And for someone like you to make an offer like that
and I don't respond, it can only mean one thing.
I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said anything.
There's no need to be sorry.
Come on, you got to come to the fight tonight.
I hate boxing, Fats. It's barbaric.
Yeah, but as a favour to me, man. As a favour to ME. Whit won't turn up if you don't.
You saw how she defended me earlier, innit?
-Yeah, so did I.
-Yeah, yeah, but when Whit done it, it meant something, yeah?
She's hot, and she's on it.
Trust me, I know these things.
All you've got to do is get down to the boxing fight tonight
and the Louisville Lip will do the rest.
Hey, just stand back and watch and learn, yeah?
You see me? You see me? Aha!
How am I looking?
-Better than I ever did.
-Reckon I'd have beaten you, then?
-I would've lasted about five seconds.
You're looking like a world champ.
Should've taught me an' all, Dad, you'd have had two world champs.
Remember, keep your hands high.
Don't worry, I'm fast.
-I know, it's important, though, to protect that pretty face.
Keep it tucked in, elbows down, fists up, cos if he don't go for your face,
he's going to go for the body.
Yeah. Keep moving. Don't stop.
Not for a second. Remember,
everything comes off the jab.
Anthony reckons I should've looked up on my opponent.
What'd you say that for?
Sorry, I was just thinking out loud.
Tell you what, Ant, why don't you go worry about something else?
Like whether you should wear short socks, or long socks. Stuff you can handle.
Now, if it comes to it -
and it won't - but if it does and you go down...
-Dad, I'm not doing that.
-It's just a Plan B.
-In case he gets lucky.
but everybody need a Plan B. Trust me.
Much better. Good boy. Through the shoulder.
Keep moving, keep moving. Keep covered.
Tell me I ain't seeing things. Only your dad and Vanessa were all cosied up earlier.
-The man can't help himself.
-Something's going on with them?
-Does it matter? They're of legal age.
-Oi! 'Course it matters.
-Do we have to go?
-There's nothing else to do.
What's she doing here?
Come on, we're all going to the fight.
No, you won't. I heard you making plans.
-You're coming home with me.
-Must be your bedtime, Faith.
Hey, Gran, you sit down and I'll get you a drink.
You're not going to any fight.
So we'll stay here and you and me can do some major bonding time!
Faith, you want to live with me, you will do as you are told. Home.
-(I'll be there.)
-No, you won't!
Who cares - you won't have it on long.
That is my plan.
And again. And again.
Right, come on, boys. Let's come together. Family moment.
What we have here is a memory in the making.
A moment when us Moons stand together and show the world,
through Tyler, what we're made of.
Yeah, this is us, this is who we are,
so we'll all be in that ring with you, Ty.
Oh, I... Erm...
It's all right. I know.
I won't let you all down, I promise.
For the family.
-ALL: The Moons.
Have it, mate, yeah?
Michael. Now, we have another reason to remember this day.
We need to move on. Both of us. It's time.
Just like that?
Trust me. We need it.
MUSIC OVER PA: "PARANOID" BY BLACK SABBATH
# Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
# Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal... #
I didn't do anything, couldn't bring myself to.
You did enough.
What's that mean?
I washed Tyler's shorts.
FAITH: So she falls asleep, right,
and I tiptoe out like the cattest cat burglar.
-You like blood then, Heather?
-Yeah, and teeth.
-Stop it, you two.
-Vanessa, we've been through all this.
It's not about that. Eddie, please.
MUSIC OVER PA: "THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN" BY THIN LIZZY
CHEERING AND WHISTLING
Admit it. You just wanted to see me in my shorts, didn't ya?
# Haven't changed haven't much to say
# But, man I still think them cats are crazy
# They were asking if you were around
# How you was where you could be found
# I told him you were livin' downtown
# Drivin' all the old men crazy... #
That's Artie Stiller! I told you I wasn't having you fixing the fights!
-You must be - the geezer's an animal. You want to see Tyler get beaten to a pulp?
The boy needs a wake-up call.
-Where's the doctor?
-The doctor I asked you to book!
Must've forgot in all this the excitement.
What you playing at?
He needs a lesson taught to him. All three of them do.
I'm going to get Yusef, and if this fight starts before I get back,
you'll be the one needing a doctor.
She'll grow on you, you know. Faith, I mean. She means well.
Yeah, all right. Mercy's told me some stories, Fats.
That is not someone you want to hang around with.
-You worried about me?
Yeah. You're my best mate, ain't ya?
You're my best male friend and I need to look after you.
HE LAUGHS NERVOUSLY
Kiss for luck?
-Mind on the job!
-This one's for you, Whit!
Right, now, keep moving, keep dancing.
He's big, so wear him out, then go in for the kill.
-I love you.
-I love you, too.
# The boys are back in town The boys are back in town
# The boys are back in town The boys are back in town... #
-Fight's this way!
-Ain't a fight, it's a massacre.
-Tyler that good, is he?
-Do yourself a favour. Go home, forget about Eddie Moon.
-What are you talking about?
I hate to be blunt, but I'm in a hurry.
He's over there with somebody else. Vanessa.
-He is, he's with her. I hate to say it,
but I did warn you.
Mm-mm! That guy's a monster.
Do you think it's fair? Look at the size of him?
-This is an underground fight. Fair doesn't come into it!
-Told you. Barbaric!
Yeah, yeah, drink it in, boys!
Eddie? You seen the size of that bloke?
It's OK. It's going to be OK.
Right, lads. Good, clean fight, nothing below the belt. Good luck.
Whack him one for me!
Go on, muller him!
-I thought you said it was barbaric?
-Yeah, I just want it to finish quickly.
Go on, Ty!
You've got some savage friends.
Yeah, you tell me about it. Friends.
Keep moving! Concentrate!
-..three four, five...
-Get up! Get up!
He's not very good, is he? Anyone would think he'd want to get hit!
What you staring at her for? I'm here.
Well, I was.
REFEREE: Break! Break! Break!
I thought you said he'd win?
Sorry about that, I really thought he would.
You don't understand.
I didn't bet on Tyler. I bet on Artie!
-When d'you go away?
-Straight after this.
Make sure you do.
Stay down, Tyler, stay down.
Plan B, son. Plan B!
Tell him not to get up.
What d'you think I'm doing?!
Come on, can you even box?
Michael, get him out of there. Stop the fight!
-Lauren, I can't bear it.
-Come on, we're leaving.
-No way, Hev!
-It's horrible. Look at his lovely face. Come on!
Come on, Hev!
Ref! Stop the fight!
What are you doing? Come on! Stop it!
Stop the fight!
Harry, call it off, call it off!
Oi, Harry, get him down, you can't go in there.
-That's my boy!
-You can't go in there!
That's my boy!
One, two, three, four,
five, six, seven,
Ant, did you see that?
Did you see that? That's my boy! That's my boy, that is!
Dad, listen to me.
I am so sorry.
-It's all gone.
-All the money. I bet it.
I was going to make us rich.
I'm so sorry.
That was for you, Whit.
