It would be good if I didn't have to go to work.
-No, thanks, I don't have the time.
-Not for you.
That's why you're so cheerful.
-You should be on your way to work. You don't get any lie-ins for half term any more, y'know.
-Yes, I know.
I just wanna see what you look like. Come here.
What you going to do next? Lick your hankie, wipe me face?
Right. Looking mean.
It's my hard stare, innit?
-See ya later, pops. Knock 'em dead.
-I will. I'll see you later.
See you later.
-What's the matter? Can't take it? Getting old?
Where you off to, then? Going to stalk Syed?
Dunno what I'm doing, Rox.
All I know is I'm sick of the lies and sick of worrying about him...
-But you love him.
That never changes.
I wish it did...
-And fix your hair, it looks a mess.
-All right, thank you.
-This should really be a happy time, shouldn't it?
-Life's never that simple.
Fact is, Sy, you've got a daughter.
-I've got a niece. You're a dad!
I'll get it.
Yeah, I know that, Tambo.
Yeah, and dads fix things, Sy, they don't sit around feeling sorry for themselves.
Dad's going to fix this family, is he? Even though his wife and son are somewhere in Pakistan
-and no-one has any idea when they'll be back?
-I will fix my family, yeah.
-Sorry, Dad. I didn't mean...
-And wherever Kamil is, I know his mother's looking after him.
-So I try not to worry.
-I'll get you some tea.
-I wasn't having a go.
-I know! Why don't we have lunch?
We don't have to be at the restaurant till later in the afternoon. I'll call Amira.
Stop. I just...I can't do this.
Of course you can, with me by your side.
-Please, let's just get out of here, OK?
-You need to calm down.
Take deep breaths. Here, swallow these.
-I need some water.
-No, you don't. Take it.
To be so afraid of facing my own children.
It's Masood we should be concerned about, not the children.
I wish we'd never come back.
The sooner we face everyone, the sooner we can finish
with all of this and then we can start our new life in Pakistan.
-That's Amira! Syed's wife.
-What would she be doing in Walford?
Don't be silly.
-No, that is her. I'm sure.
I'll take you to the cafe. You need a drink to calm down.
We don't want your family to see you like this.
You'd think someone would be here by now.
Too early. They'll be here, don't you worry.
And that's your amazing business brain clicking into action, is it?
"Don't you worry". What are you wearing?
New shirt and tie.
From his granddaughter. It's nice, innit?
-Where are you going?
I'm going to make it happen, Billy.
Because that is what successful business people do.
What if they all start turning up?
Oh... Use your initiative.
You look like a happy fella.
I've loved Pat all my life...
From afar, of course.
Can't quite believe it's finally happened for me.
Nice to see a fella find his soulmate.
-All we need to do now is fix you up with the woman of your dreams.
-No, no, I've done with all that.
Just give me my rum, music, and I'm a happy man.
-Bit of sunshine'd be nice, though, eh?
-That too, yes, man. Sunshine.
Blue sky, and a gentle breeze down my back...
You know, I might book a trip to the Caribbean.
You won the lottery?
-Did a bit of business. Commission.
-What kind of business?
You own property, right? If you ever need money quick, you come to me and I'll see you right.
How can you manage that?
I pass all your details to the right person.
Then, when the deal goes through, I'm in for some nice commission.
-I'm splitting this one down the middle with Pat, of course.
-What kind of deal is this?
Personal loan. All above board and honest. No questions asked.
Another coffee, please.
What about yours?
I've something to do at the surgery.
You're not going to leave me, are you?
-You all right?
Yes. Thank you. Just tired, you know.
-Well, it's a long journey, isn't it?
You see? Everyone knows your business, and no-one's going to make it easy for you.
-What, you think that was a...
-A criticism, yes.
What else? You sit tight. Don't move.
I won't be long.
No, no, Pat.
I'm coming round straight away.
I'm just letting Daddy know we're here.
What do you think you're doing here?
We're trying to sort things out, me and Syed.
But there is no you and Syed.
But I'm texting him right now.
Why didn't you return my solicitor's phone calls?
It was very kind of you, but really it's something me and Syed can sort out.
Let me explain. They don't want you here.
But... Syed and I are taking, he's met Yasmin.
You really don't know how miserable your life will be, or hers,
if you don't take my advice.
Good. So our business is done.
You only took them days off cos Dr Khan wasn't here.
It was my right! I was owed it.
I told you not to bring them files home but you never listen.
It's so busy at the surgery all the time. The telephone's going...
Oh, why did Dr Khan have to come home today?
-You're like the foolish virgin, you are, you ain't got no oil in your lamp.
-Oh, very Christian.
You just stand there, don't worry about helping me, will you?
Did I say I wouldn't help you?
Now, you get them into piles and we'll take 'em over the surgery
and I shall file 'em and I shall bring order to chaos.
Come on, chop-chop, faster.
I'm not that bothered, it's just you did say you'd come.
-I said I'd try.
-OK. Fine. No big deal. It's up to you.
-I'm due in town anyway.
-Yeah, good. Great. Off you go.
Hang on, I'm sorry. What can I do? If I could I would.
Anyway, I've got clients waiting. I've got deals to be done...
-I won't need it.
-There you go.
To celebrate your umpteenth engagement.
Who knows, registry office might finally give me a discount, I might even get it right this time.
-Whoa! Do you mind?
-No. Billy, what are all these losers doing here?
I used me initiative, didn't I? Get the place buzzing.
-Yeah, because Ian's really likely to buy a penthouse, isn't he?
Ian...I was wondering if you've done our rent contract?
You haven't moved into his fleapit, have you? He'll have done you over the second he saw you.
I can't do that!
Please can I have your attention?
My idiot caretaker seems to have made a bit of an idiot mistake.
He ain't a caretaker.
If you could please get your snout out of the trough,
and leave. Thank you.
Everyone's laughing at you.
Tragic, eh? You're the local joke, you are.
Well, not quite as funny as your old granddad in a disgusting shirt
and a 50p tie.
Um, Pat, yesterday you were talking about some financial advisor.
Tell me about it now, man.
There's nothing to tell. I had a problem, now I haven't.
And the answer to this problem. It was Norman, wasn't it?
Well, Pat, tell me you didn't fall for it.
Tell me you didn't take out a loan against this house.
My son, Simon, needed money.
-I knew it!
-But it's a good deal. They're not loan sharks.
He told me, for every idiot he introduces to this scam he makes a whole heap of money!
Which he's splitting with me. It's not a scam. And I'm not an idiot.
But an instant loan, no questions asked? Come on, it's got to be fishy.
-You don't know that.
-Pat, listen to me - all these instant loan places,
as soon as you miss a payment, as soon as you default, they cash in.
I bet you took his word for it and signed on the dotted line.
There you go again, mistaking me for some a gullible old fool.
He's nearly asleep.
Be a shame to wake him.
Are you ready?
Remember, you have me.
I'll look after you.
I'm sure Kamil won't mind if his little niece shares this.
So you're back, finally.
-Why didn't you phone?
-We tried to.
-Phone lines aren't always reliable.
-And we tried to call.
-We tried both your mobiles every day.
-I'd lost mine...
-Sorry, time just sped by,
reception was terrible, you know how it is.
We were really worried about you. Are you OK? Where's Kamil?
He's sleeping. I'll take him up to his room shortly.
We thought you'd, like, fallen off the edge of the world or something.
-I'm so sorry.
-You don't have to apologise, Zainab.
You know your mother wasn't well, she needed a break.
Well, how is everyone?
Everything all right?
We've got loads to tell you.
OK, well, tell me.
Have you needed me?
Is everyone well?
Amira had a baby.
I'm a dad.
You've got a granddaughter.
So much for a private enterprise.
Not one single, solitary, solvent...
Thank you. So that's your entire input for the day, is it?
-It's not my fault your contacts didn't come.
Did you actually send the invitations out, Billy?
What's going on?
-I don't get it.
-It's nothing to do with me.
But it's obviously working.
Hiya. Come through.
Lovely to see you. Hi, come in.
Morton Holdings. Show time, Billy! Smile.
Me, a grandmother!
I can't believe it.
Oh, Yusef, isn't it amazing?
She really is lovely, Mum.
I can't wait to see her. So, when can I see her?
Amira's bringing her over for lunch. So, not long now.
-How was the holiday.
-Oh, who cares?
A holiday is a holiday. Where's my grandchild?
Have a look under you bed, Tiff, I dunno where it is...
You and Norman can have your tea after everyone else, give you some peace and quiet.
-I dunno what we're doing yet.
-You're not going out again, are you?
You're s'posed to be taking things easy.
What's the matter, Pat? You all right?
Nothing. Just leave me alone.
Sometimes you just want your own company.
That's a nice thought when you've just met a new fella.
OK, all right.
Tell you what, that Norman needs a medal
if he's going to take you on.
All right, Tam.
-Stop apologising, will ya?
-No. I mean, yeah.
They're just... They're just in case... Um...
Yasmin. You can say her name, you know. I'm not going to turn into the Hulk.
Right. Yeah, it's just a family meal.
-Dinner. Well, it's lunch. So I just got some cake.
-And she's not seen Yasmin yet.
So we're all excited to see her with...
-I better get back.
this might sound like a stupid question, but...
Syed is...all right?
He's happy. Yeah. I think he wishes you were there.
J for James.
Comes after I for Incompetence.
I do know my alphabet, thank you, Dot.
And here is Jones. That comes after...
Oh, my word.
-These test results have been lying here for two weeks.
You never did nothing with them.
Give them to me.
The locum never even saw them.
-Dr Khan'll see it tomorrow.
-It's too late.
Oh, he's a lovely man. He's a member of my church.
His funeral is tomorrow.
Battery was down again.
Maybe you should get a new one.
It'd help if I plugged it in sometime.
So, good night with Roxy?
-Hard work having fun.
-She seems to manage it.
Yeah. She does.
Sy, you've got a daughter.
I can't begin to imagine what that feels like.
I saw Tam earlier and...
..he seems so happy.
You know, all the family together.
Got me thinking, that must be a part of what you're feeling right now.
I know I've treated you really badly.
I'm not going to ruin what you've got.
I'm not going to keep trying to make you choose.
I miss you.
I'm taking a step back.
you go and spend the day with your little girl.
And then you come home to me.
You see these people on TV and think "I wouldn't fall for that."
-But I did, didn't I? With a little help from my friend.
All you have to do is keep up the re-payments. It'll be fine.
And if I miss one, I've had it.
They don't care about my repayments.
They're going to get their money back by selling this house!
You needed cash for your son. I was trying to help.
Some help! You're just like Frank, aren't you? Just like him!
-No, no, Pat.
-Except he wasn't a well-meaning moron.
At least some of his schemes stood a chance of success.
-This one, forget it!
-I'll bring your share of the commission. That'll make you feel better.
Write a cheque and post it.
I'll give you my share.
Please, Pat, don't do this to me, please.
-You know how I feel about you.
-But this isn't about YOU, is it?
I don't care if it's one-sided.
I don't mind if you don't feel the same way.
I'm sorry, but I mind.
Please. Please, Pat.
You're weak, and I don't need a weak man.
I never want to see your face again.
That's the sunset on Karachi beach...
How do you feel about Amira now?
-Are you getting on?
She's a good mother.
Almost as good as mine.
SHE CLEARS THROAT
And how does Amira feel about me now?
How should she feel? What do you mean?
What if she's realised I knew about you and Christian but still let you marry?
Mum. I'm not going to tell her that.
Has she forgiven you?
As much as she can. It's Christian she can't forgive. She won't have anything to do with him.
MOBILE PHONE BEEPS
That's a shame.
Dad, it's a happy occasion, yeah?
What, forget about all the worries of the last two weeks?
< Dad's here.
How are you?
Um, he's fine.
He's sleeping in the bed. You can go see him if you...
-When he wakes up.
I'm sorry that I... took him without saying anything.
Well...I knew you'd be back.
Someone had to step in and look after Zainab.
I was worried about her.
Well, you look much better now.
I feel much better. Thank you.
< Time to meet Miss Yasmin Masood!
-Time to see your grandma, little one...
Oh, my Yasmin.
What a jewel.
And she's so beautiful, Mas.
Yeah, I know.
Oh, come here.
You should be in there celebrating.
After all, your daughter is Yasmin's aunty.
You should be there, part of our family's great happiness.
Thank you. I will.
Or is it too painful for you to see me and my family together?
some ties that we have...
Zainab and I, that...
that can never be broken.
Bonds so strong
that they'll last forever.
Yasmin's just the latest,
maybe even the strongest, do you think?
There you go.
The kids are all having their dinner.
I'm really sorry, you know. You two were really good together.
-Yes, it does. Come on, you can tell me.
-Nothing to tell.
No fool like an old fool.
-'It's a little yellowish, I'd have said,
'which does influence bidders. That might deter a few people...'
I'll just see them to the taxi, Yusef.
Oh, my jacket. I'll just be a second.
Here we are.
A wonderful day for the family.
I hope you didn't mind me not taking your advice.
Please. It was wrong advice.
I thought the family were going to be hostile
but as it turned out, they were fine.
So...let's agree to forget our earlier conversation.
-I'm very glad. For you and for Yasmin.
And as my daughter is Yasmin's aunty,
I hope you'll both come to see me as a sort of step uncle.
I'm sure we will.
-That was a nice day, and a pleasant girl.
I don't think she picked up on your family's tensions.
Tensions? I thought everyone was very kind.
Yes, they put on a good show for Amira.
Apart from Masood, who was struggling to mask his anger.
Now then, we should plan another get-together. Tell the family about Karachi.
-The sooner the better. Let them get used to the idea, start planning.
I'm sorry, I...
I can't possibly go to Karachi. Not now.
I have a grandchild.
Everything has changed.
She can come out and visit us.
Well, no. It's made me realise that...
Afia, God-willing, soon will also have a baby.
She can bring it up in Pakistan.
I'm offering a fresh start, for all of us.
Yes, but it's not all of us, is it?
I mean...what about Masood?
He's the Dhadaaji.
It was a lovely dream, Yusef, but...
I'm very sorry. I can't.
THEY TALK AND LAUGH QUIETLY
It's sort of grown up, isn't it, having our own place?
Yeah. Grown up.
What is it Roxy calls us? Girls about town.
Ladies... I've just been into the flat.
-In our flat?
-You're not allowed to do that.
-Yeah, check everything's all right. I got to tell you, the bathroom looks fantastic.
-Oh, thanks, Ian.
Amazing what a bit of TLC'll do.
Definitely worth an extra tenner.
-On the rent.
BOTH: You can't!
You were the ones that reminded me about the contract.
You are still getting a bargain.
Hey there, sexy.
-How did you get on?
-Oh, you have no idea how well it went.
-The weirdest thing happened.
By God, Michael, you're a genius!
..a weird freakshow?
MOBILE PHONE BEEPS So good...
Jack, I got to go and be a mummy.
See you soon, sweetie.
See you, darling. Ta-ta.
There you go.
And what is that?
It's the invoice.
The bags, the mouse pads, the pens. Cost money, don't they?
Two sad, single men. Both out in the cold, eh?
Syed playing happy families, back with his baby and his wife.
All of a bit sudden for me, this instant family.
I wonder why she's come back now, after a year?
-Because she wants Yasmin to know her father.
-Sure we'd all like that.
When you're a doctor you see so much
of the bleak side of humanity.
The exploitation and the deceit.
And why would she lie,
now that there's DNA testing to remove any doubt?
-There is no doubt. Syed's the father.
