Someone's starting early.
-You sleep well, Vanessa?
-Yeah, thank you.
Don't drink out...
Morning, Dad. You're up early.
Where were you last night?
Got a B&B near Craig's.
Thanks for the gift.
What exactly is it that you know?
It's not what I know.
It's what you know.
You've obviously been going through my stuff so I take it this is about the money.
-I was confused at first, I thought you were broke.
-I can explain.
But then I realised,
in the early hours in that pokey room, I don't trust you.
So why would I believe your excuses?
And if...you knew that...
..Michael had given me that money to leave you?
If you saw proof of that...
..what would you think then?
Wouldn't think of it to look at her, would you?
-Good morning, love of my life.
Come and sit down.
I got proper coffee on the table brewing away there,
and I've got a Moon special breakfast.
Beautiful. Fit for a queen, come on.
A queen that had to sleep in Peter Beale's old single bed
while Jean is snoring through paper thin walls.
At least you weren't stuck round Fat Elvis's sandwiched between him and Mo!
Kat come on, it's just a hiccup,
it won't even make the autobiography, will it?
Glad to see you two are keeping your spirits up.
Hey, morning guys, something special here for you.
My way of saying thank you.
With my bacon and my eggs?
He doesn't change does he, eh? Come and sit down, mate.
Thanks for last night.
It's fine. Don't mention it. It is just the one night though, isn't it?
Well, it might take Phil a couple of days to...
No, you're going round there today
and you say whatever needs to be said to get our home back.
Vanessa and I have a few things we need to discuss.
-I'd be grateful for a bit of space.
What you rushing for?
Sorry, I'm just really late.
Just chill out a minute, and, you know... Wow!
OK, so I was coming to give you this
but if you treat the pickneys like you treat breakfast
-maybe it's a bad idea!
-What is it?
It's a kids group down at the nursery.
Just thought you might be able to get a bit of work experience or something, you know.
Don't think they're going to be interested in me.
Hey, that's Tyler talking now, all right. I want to hear Whitney, yeah?
You should be saying, "Fats, I'm going to bust down that nursery door,
"teach those little pups, you get me?"
Right? Come on!
-Was that an impression of me?
I didn't want to show you. I didn't want to hurt you but...he's poison.
You set this up.
I knew I'd need it one day.
I want the truth and I want it right now.
You leave anything out and I find out later, we're over.
Tell me now and we've got a chance.
I filmed it because...
..he hates you so much that he paid me...
..to split up you and Carol and to break your heart.
I didn't know you then and I was desperate.
I had Jodie's wedding to pay for, I had nowhere to live.
You took money?
I want you out of here right now.
D'you think it was a coincidence
that fight took place on the anniversary of Maggie's death?
Watch your tongue.
Listen, you think what you will of me
but you've got to know what he's like.
He planned it all,
he even put a psychopath in the ring with your son.
He wanted Tyler hurt, Eddie.
Yeah, that's mine.
Most people use butter.
Not me, not got time.
-He's gone para.
Slept in the Vic last night, make sure no-one tried to take it back.
So long as he's out of my way he can stay there.
Jay, have a word with him, please?
After yesterday? You having a laugh ain't ya?
He's your dad, Ben!
Look, at lunchtime why don't you come down the gym.
Lola and Abi are having self defence lessons. Should be hilarious.
See ya later.
Come on, hurry up will you. Look lively.
Phil, can I have a word please...?
I need a favour.
After what you did to my sister?
How is Carol?
You don't owe me anything but maybe you can help me out.
I need to know about Tyler's fight.
I need to know who decided on that night in particular.
And if you're late again Micky's going to hear about it, all right?
Listen, you can't run this place, the R&R, the Cafe and the Arches,
you've only got one pair of hands, and it make sense for me and Kat to be here.
There's plenty of managers about and with less lip.
-And I don't know how you manage to sleep in that bed?
-You slept in our bed?
Doesn't matter. Me and Kat, we're like a institution.
People come here, they come for the theatre.
Yeah, my chat, his awful shirts.
What they going to come to you for, a black eye and a botched MOT?
No, seriously, Phil, thing is, this is our home.
It's where Tommy was born.
-We want him to grow up here. Please.
-About time. Look lively.
It's a state in there.
-Where did you find him?
-I didn't find him. Michael found him.
I didn't like the look. He had history.
What kind of history?
Jack, this isn't about you.
Well, I ain't got anything to hide, I said he was bad news.
He had previous.
Some bloke he knocked out didn't get back up.
And Michael knew that?
He was the only fighter we could get for that night.
Why not change the night, you know? If he'd killed someone...
Michael took control and I let him. It was his brother.
He knew what was best.
He wanted that night, that fighter.
Who was I to argue? It was his brother, right?
He slept in our bed!
KNOCK ON DOOR
Hey! Thought we could get busy with the fizzy before we go.
-Translation: have a glass of wine.
-I'll get changed.
You're not ready yet, hurry up!
She thinks she's going to bag herself a businessman.
With a yacht and a pet puma with a Diamante collar!
If you find him, introduce him to Kat. She could do with an indecent proposal!
Do you like life?
Kat, you wearing that? It looks lovely, it does. All set?
-Right, have a large one.
Come on, me first.
He was just so...cool. I mean he was actually cool.
Did it not say anything about that on that website you checked?
Oh! Dirty stop out's arrived!
Got a bit of business to see about, Dad.
Reckon I could take the jag to have a shufty?
Don't think the van will cut it really.
-Sure? This is Anthony!
There's a big chance he'll lose it.
-Promise me you'll look out for each other?
You watch each other's back.
Hi. Can I help you?
I'm here about the play group. I'm probably not qualified or anything.
Do you do work experience, or...
Well, we do if we find the right people. Are you interested in becoming a nursery nurse?
Yeah! I love kids. Sometimes I think they get me more than adults.
And I can't be a market girl all my life can I?
OK, well take a seat. I hope you like tea because I'm an addict!
Let's get a move on, we should have been open an hour ago.
Oh! I thought so.
We've only just opened!
No-one's coming in here after yesterday, Phil.
Look, I know how much this pub means to you and your family
but it's time to move on.
I ain't selling.
Nobody else is going to pay you this much for an empty pub.
I found some money in Vanessa's things...a lot of money.
I told you.
I told you she wasn't broke!
I just can't believe I was taken in by her.
So you use the weight of your attacker to put them on the floor.
You all right?
All right, come on then, Abs, you're going to take me down...
-Oh, no, it's OK.
-I let you off yesterday, today it's compulsory.
-Jay, what you doing here?
-Just here to support my girl!
-So what's he doing here?
Maybe he's come for a few lessons too!
That's great. One more. Thank you.
You wait years to get invited and they have it at the community centre.
Got a new roof to celebrate the re-opening. All lovely.
No, that's rubbish, it's Gordon Bags' way of telling Kris Jennings
he's not going to be missed. Now please behave!
There you go, girls. Get that down your neck.
Excuse me. One's just pulled, old chap(!)
You go, old boy(!)
Go on, darling.
Hello, and what do you do?
Right. Let's make the most of this, all right?
You take the left, I'll take the right.
Meet in the middle with a new pub and friends in high places.
Speak when you're spoken to. If you have to, hold your breath.
Gordon, how are you doing?
Beale. Have you met my lovely wife, Tuscany?
No, but I've always wanted to go there. No, not like that.
Still qualify as a local businessman, do you?
Haven't lost the chippy to another careless marriage?
Nice cake. Look at that. Bet even you could spell that right!
I'd imagined it for so many years.
The moment the boys met Craig.
What did she say when you confronted her with the envelope?
The envelope? What could she say?
I mean, it was right there.
In my own bedroom.
Unbelievable. Unbelievable, the arrogance.
And you thought we were having an affair.
Well, I knew something was going on between the two of you.
Yeah. Well, there was. I was trying to get rid of her.
because I wanted her gone before you found out.
It's a horrible feeling, being lied to all this time.
Makes you feel unstable,
Like you can't count on the ground beneath your feet any more.
Precisely why you need your family around you.
People you can trust.
And I can trust you?
Yeah. I'm your first born son.
You must visit us at our hotel sometime.
Oi. You need to get down to McKlunky's, yeah?
Get some chilli sauce because these are arid. Totally arid.
I'm particular about my chicken.
We loved the Queen Vic, only problem is it's a full-on job, 24/7.
I'm a bit bored of being the community agony aunt!
I don't want to hear about your in-grown toenail!
I'd be walking down the street,
complete strangers come up and go "Alfie, can we have some advice on our relationship?"
And I'd only popped out for a savaloy and chips.
-Just needed some space. Have you met my wife?
-Have you met my husband?
Ian, no-one gets on the committee without Bags' say so.
Kris, look, you can put a good word in with Bags for me, can't you?
Think of it as the outgoing member, helping the next generation.
I didn't resign from the committee, Ian.
Bags decided it was time I left and frankly, I can do without him as an enemy.
You known Ian long have you?
-Yeah. We go way back.
-Sure. We do too, actually.
Really? Guess you must be kind of forgettable.
Well, it must be hard to remember all the faces you've ever flashed yourself at.
-See. Nothing to it.
-If you say so.
-Come on, you.
-Let me have a go at him.
-It's not a fight.
-She says, have a go at me?
-Aw, is little Benny scared?
-All right, come on then.
-We got a fight on our hands!
-Listen you two, minimal contact.
Oh, my days, that was so easy!
You're easier than Scabs!
-I said minimal contact!
-Ben, what are you doing?
-You all right?
-You all right, Lo?
See you later. Take care. Bye.
-Why you looking so miserable?
-Why you looking so smug?
I didn't snap the axle and I didn't bend a fender.
I just went, did a bit of business and left.
-Come on, what's up?
She won't answer my calls.
I didn't know you two were in the business of calling each other.
What is a boy of mine doing hanging round a girl who sells herself to men?
Dad. She doesn't any more.
And it weren't like that.
-She's a good person she was...
-None of them are good! None of them.
What's up with you all of a sudden, you hormonal or something?
You two was both wrong about her, all right? I'm telling you that's not how it went down.
-How would you know?
-Dad, if Ty says she's not like that...
..then she's not like that.
..I might go for a walk.
Dad? Dad, you just got here. Dad?
-What is up with him?
-I don't know.
Yesterday he was asking me to keep an eye on Vanessa and Michael.
It was weird.
Go and talk to her.
If she's not going to answer your calls...
..don't let me and Dad mess it up for you, all right?
Come upstairs. I know a nice little broom cupboard with a lock on it.
Whatever he's paying you, I'll pay double.
He's not paying me.
In love are you? With Beale?
Do me a favour!
-What's going on?
-I never thought you'd bring the reputation of this establishment into disrepute.
Fancy bringing a stripper in here.
Stripper? What's that, Mother Theresa?
My wife has never sold herself for money.
-I beg your pardon?
-Listen, hold on a second, maybe you've got her mistaken for someone else?
Or maybe someone should ask him how he knows.
I won't have my integrity questioned by a cheap tart.
You know what, Gordon, I really wanted a place on this committee.
For many reasons, it'd improve my business, it would probably improve
my standing in the community, and I'm sure it would make me richer.
-No, no, I really want to do this.
Oh, I would, guess what?
I'm going to do it twice!
OK. Let's have it!
-You will never sit on this committee, Beale!
OK, I'll add on another ten grand just to end the dullness!
I ain't selling.
You need to think of yourself as a brand.
Like a pasta sauce that's poisoned everybody.
You don't change the name and no-one will ever buy it again.
-Shut up, will ya?
-Toxic's the word they use, isn't it?
Mitchell is a toxic brand. You need to accept that.
I don't want your money!
This stops now.
-Get off me!
-Kat and Alfie, they've lost their jobs, their livelihoods!
-I didn't ask them to get involved! Get off me.
-Tell your father!
-You don't know what he's like.
-Patrick, what you doing?
You going to spend the rest of your life lying? Regardless of who gets hurt?
-Oi! What you doing with my boy, eh?!
-Dad we was just talking!
-Were you having a go at him again?
-No, no, no!
-You want to see how far this goes?
Spend the rest of your life eating through a straw?
Dad, please, please, please! DAD!
You've got this all wrong. I think you better talk to your son.
He's got something to say to you.
What's he mean? You've got something to say to me?
How am I supposed to know?
-Whit! Wait up!
-I've got nothing to say to you.
I'm sorry I didn't get it right.
I've never had to deal with anything like this before. There isn't exactly a handbook.
Well, other people that I actually care about seem to manage.
-Good for them!
-Listen, I've just been up the nursery, applied for work experience, all right?
I don't need people like you dragging me down when I got things going on.
-What you going to do there?
-Kung Fu, what do you think?
Just a bit of nursery work, nothing special.
You'll be great at that. You got a calm way about you, bet the kids love you.
-I just want to give you something and then I'll go, I promise.
Honestly, the quickest way of getting rid of me right now is to just take it.
-Your dad gave you that, it's for family.
Feels right, you having it.
Where are you going?
I don't want the money.
I hate it.
I can't forgive myself for what I've done to you.
All right, psycho?
Abi's acting like I put Lola on the floor myself.
Just had a right go at me.
What's the matter with you?
When I took that money from Michael I'd hit rock bottom. Really, I had.
When that happens your thinking changes,
it becomes simpler.
You're like an animal. You just protect what you love at all costs.
When I heard him talking I felt sick.
All the thing's he's done.
I nearly lost Tyler. My Tyler.
What are you going to do?
Well, he needs to think you're out on your ear.
So you carry on packing.
Am I going somewhere?
-A nice little holiday, away from all this.
-What about Michael?
Sad part about this is that I think he cares now.
He's finally got it.
What family is.
Me, the boys,
a home of his own for the first time in his life.
When we take it all away from him...
..it's going to finish him.
