Och aye the noo!
Tell Mick I got a right good deal on the bunting
for the Supper Club tonight.
I got red tartan, I got lions...
Linda threw him such a party.
Should hope so. He's only 40 the once.
Quiet in here.
Run off my feet earlier. Died down now.
The caff's heaving.
-Kathy's coffees are going down a storm.
I'd best not keep you, then.
Yeah. Anyway I'll be back later tonight, all right?
Love a bit of Gay Gordons, me.
And spread the word, don't forget. I want to get this place buzzing.
-Do Mick proud.
-See you later.
Hey, Denise, you should be resting, man.
-I'm not an invalid.
-It's only been a few days.
Yeah. Yeah, it's fine. It's just...you know, it's the milk.
Oh. Would expressing help?
No, the midwife said that that just prolongs things.
Don't worry about me, darling.
Everything will get back to normal soon, yeah?
I was going to bring them up to you.
You'll be down the hospital best part of tomorrow.
You need to rest.
Do nothing but these days.
It's Tony's funeral this afternoon, isn't it?
His poor family.
Look, Michelle told Ben that we were seeing the consultant.
He doesn't know about Denise.
You don't have any regrets, do you?
Seriously, Bex. I don't care what it took.
I'm just so relieved I don't have to look at Keegan's zitty face
across that lab ever again...
Oi oi, you'll be seeing her at school all day, won't you?
(Hang on, Bex.) Dad, this is important.
Anyway, I can't make it tonight...
Nah, I've got drama club...
Yeah, I know, I totally can't wait...
Cool guys and not stupid kids.
In answer to your question...
No regrets whatsoever.
I don't pay you to sweep up, I pay you to cook.
Rat droppings. They're everywhere.
Don't worry about it. I've been on to the council.
More importantly, how was your birthday?
-Yeah, yeah. It was bang on.
It was bang on.
You'll never guess who showed up. My Nancy and Tam.
All the way from Italy.
How are they?
They're good, yeah, yeah.
They've got a bit of graft, you know, got somewhere to live.
They not calling in here?
Nah, nah they had to shoot off double early.
Bet you didn't want to let Nancy go.
No. No, didn't want to leave any of 'em, to be honest with you.
Elaine no better then?
It's going to be a long haul.
Fingers crossed the doctors give Linda a break
so she can get herself home.
In the meantime, you've still got family here don't forget.
I really appreciate you holding the fort, you know.
You've been a real diamond.
I meant Lee.
He did come back from Watford, I assume.
Yeah, course he did.
He's got his high-flying career to get back to, ain't he?
He does want to make amends, you know.
Are you feeling all right?
I thought you liked this new posh stuff.
It's all right.
It was wicked seeing Nance and Tam again, weren't it?
-Nancy sounds like she's doing amazing.
And I'm not, I suppose.
Didn't say that, did I?
Anyway. Your dad had a good time, didn't he?
He didn't say a single word.
you've still got a lot of making up to do, Lee.
I've already said to him
that I'm going to pay back every penny, all right?
How you going to do that?
I weren't going to say nothing,
but I got a job interview after work today.
Commission again, yeah.
Yeah, but it's a much better basic than what I'm on now.
I'm trying, all right?
Yeah, I know.
Thank you, Vincent.
Um, I didn't really know what was appropriate...
Thank you. It's really thoughtful of you.
Yeah, they're lovely. I'll get a vase.
So, um...how are you doing?
Yeah, she's, um...
She's taken Pearl on a play date.
Yeah, I think she just needed to get away from Emerald
-if you want me to be honest.
A month's a long time.
I mean, she's driving us insane,
just running round the house half naked.
-Chat, chat, chat...
-Not to me, she ain't.
I think she just needed more time.
Must be catching.
I respect you, Denise.
It's your kid.
You know what you're doing.
But when Kim gets something in her head...
you know what she's like.
She's her sister.
And she should be here supporting her.
No matter what she thinks.
She doesn't know that you're here, does she?
-I-I-I'd better be going.
-I thought after last week that was it, you know?
The worst is over.
But I'm not going to be allowed to forget, am I?
I should go and check with Billy.
Make sure everything's all right for Thursday.
You'll need to take Ronnie's dress, don't forget.
It was good of Dot to look after Matthew this morning.
-And she's offered to bring her cat over tonight.
The kids love playing with it.
Tormenting it, more like.
Yeah, well, helps keep their minds off things.
Out, out, out, out! Shoo!
What is it?
Overflowing bins I can just about cope with, but vermin?!
Should be used to them by now. It's London.
Get a grip.
Donna, these are super-size, I swear.
They'll be camping out at the launderette now it's closed.
Yeah, lovely. Five-star hotel, right next to our shop.
I'll give Mr Papadopoulos a call.
Right. Spuds done.
I'll need more than that.
Why? We don't want to waste 'em.
There might not be many punters after Italian night.
Yeah, well. I'm back at the helm now.
Johnny hadn't a scooby.
Johnny did his best.
And it ain't like you've never messed up plenty, is it?
Right. That's the red lions up outside, so we're all set.
Apart from the neeps.
No, I think I'll leave the grub to the experts.
Oh, yeah, don't overdo it. Not at your age.
Linda would love tonight, wouldn't she?
Yeah. She'll be back soon enough, don't you worry,
ordering everyone around.
Post for you both of you on the side.
Not red 'uns, are they?
It's Lee's fault, ain't it? He's got you in debt.
Look, as long as we keep the show on the road,
everything's going to be all right.
-Yes. OK. So tatties, neeps...
How are you doing?
You all right?
I take it you've heard.
I can't pretend that I wasn't surprised.
-If you've come to talk me round...
Look, if Phil's the reason you're doing this, I would never tell him.
Sharon overheard when we were talking in the lavs at the Vic.
They've come up the hospital...
They agree with the adoption.
What, are you saying that Sharon pushed him into this?
I don't think so.
Look, Phil is...
He's really vulnerable at the moment.
-He would never give up his son.
-Well, he has.
There's no going back now.
Shirl, I can't think about Phil right now.
Can you imagine what it'd have been like for me
if Phil would have taken him?
I do get it, Denise.
When I was having Mick...
..I thought about doing the same thing...
..but my family waded in.
I didn't have to make that call.
I'm thinking about the baby, you know, as much as me.
Takes a lot of guts.
That means a lot, coming from you.
-Well, there's plenty out there that will be judge and jury.
Anyway, thank you for coming round, Shirl, you know, it was...
starting to feel pretty lonely around here.
Good music, good grub. What's not to like?
I dunno. All that diddly dee stuff does my head in.
Go on, give it a try. It'll be a laugh.
Oi, check with me before you pin stuff up there.
You're not trying to put it up again, are you?
Tina didn't think you'd mind now.
Given how popular you are.
Tina, you know I'm trying to build up the evening trade.
It's completely different. We ain't a pub.
Yeah, but we serve food.
The coffee and cake is a big draw.
Bit of healthy competition won't hurt. Unless you're...
Do me a favour.
Your last la-di-da "Supper Club" was a total disaster.
That was down to Johnny. I'm in charge now.
And I've got very big plans.
You sure Michelle is all right with you nicking her frog bag?
She can't need it. She left it on the back of the kitchen door.
I'll give it back to her when I see her.
Tell you what, it is good to have her back properly though, ain't it?
Do you want L plates on the back of that?
Tell me about it.
Here, you going to the funeral?
I'm not sure.
They're having the wake in the Vic. I might be needed over there.
We've had our differences...
Yeah. And some.
Still, no-one deserves what she'll be going through.
See you later.
That is decaf, ain't it? Otherwise I'll be buzzing all night.
Yeah. Some cake? We've got a new range.
Ooh... Well, I can't say no to a bit of lemon drizzle.
Have you been to see Denise yet?
I've gone to text her that many times.
Text her? She's just across the Square, she's in a right state.
I just don't know what to say, Shirl.
You don't have to say nothing. Just listen.
I think back to my boys.
I could never hand 'em over to some stranger.
Denise has been a good friend to you.
Look, Carmel, you don't have to agree with your mates.
You just need to be there for them.
Sir Andy Murray, get hold of that.
You don't think it's a bit OTT?
No, my L said you can never have enough razzle dazzle.
She would know.
Whit, I really appreciate you grafting on your day off.
Well, it's the least I can do after everything you've done for us.
No, for Lee. He's the one that should be showing gratitude.
He is trying.
Yeah, so everyone keeps telling me.
He's got himself a job interview after work.
Hello, darling! We was just talking about you.
Yeah, yeah, I'm gutted.
Yeah, no, we'll be all right, we'll cope, L.
We'll cope, we'll be fine. It's just, em...
All right. Give him a big kiss from me, all right?
I'll speak to you later. Bye.
Elaine's being moved to rehab.
So Linda won't be coming home, not even for a couple of days.
What does that mean? How long's she going to be away for?
Ollie was sobbing his heart out,
so she's going to call me later after lock up.
Maybe it's a good thing in a way.
There's nothing good about this.
No, what I mean is, you don't want Linda worrying
about bills and that, do you?
If we all knuckle down and work really hard,
it could all be sorted by the time she comes home.
It's just, um...
It's just really hard without her.
I was beginning to think there must be a cross on the door.
Sorry, I would've come sooner, but...
I've been rushed off my feet.
You're here now.
I can't stop.
I promised Shaki a burger.
He'll be waiting.
Just came to...check how you were.
It's bound to take time...
I know what you're thinking, Carmel.
I should've confided in you more.
No, not at all.
It's your business.
You're my best friend, I...
No. Denise, it's...it's fine.
You had a decision to make and you made it, so...
Sounds like you don't approve.
Look, I really can't talk about this now.
Shaki will be waiting.
-We'll talk about it another time.
You've gotta come next time, Bex. It's such a laugh.
Oh, my days. You know Travis?
Travis. The fit one. He's in your art class, ain't he?
Yeah. He's coming over. So I've gotta go. OK. Bye. Bye.
VENDING MACHINE WHIRS
Do you want some?
No, you're all right.
What do you think?
For the Burns Supper at the Vic tonight.
It looks great.
Why don't we all go for a drink?
Yeah, might do you some good to get out.
What, and have everyone in the Vic pointing the finger?
Oh, come on, nobody's going to do that.
Carmel couldn't get out of here quick enough.
My own mother and sister can't even face me.
It's been a bit of a shock, but everyone will soon accept it.
It was my decision.
-It's got nothing to do with anyone else.
I just meant that it's not an everyday thing, is it?
We all need some time to get used to the idea.
Look, I know that you've both done your best to help me
and I appreciate that.
But you tell me straight,
do you, hand on heart, support what I've done?
But you were the one who said I was wasting my life having the baby.
-No, no, no, what's done is done.
There's no point in falling out over this.
When you first found out I was pregnant.
-I didn't mean...this.
Libby, I think you should come with me.
-Just give your mum some space.
-Yeah, that's a good idea.
Oh, Babe, I'm really sorry, I'll be over in bit.
Emin's been held up.
As long as you are coming.
With no Linda, Mick needs all hands on deck.
Yeah, of course.
Sorry about Kathy earlier.
Oh, jealousy's a terrible thing.
I'm so sorry. I'll get a cloth.
-Don't worry about it.
-Such a clumsy clot.
Let me at least clear it up, eh?
No, it's fine.
Anyway you've got to get back to the Vic, ain't you?
If you're sure.
Listen, Babe, forget Kathy.
I think it's brilliant what you're doing for Mick.
I wouldn't drink the coffee, if I were you.
He likes us.
Yes. Yes, he does.
Come here, Dave. My turn.
That's what I call him.
Yeah, Dave's good.
We can't call him Ethel if he's a boy.
Oh, no, I suppose not.
But why on earth Dave?
Glenda said Auntie Ronnie and Amy's mum
had a hamster called Dave.
Yeah. They did.
Roxy named him after Ronnie's first boyfriend to wind her up.
Can we call him Dave?
Oh, please, Grandma Dot?
as you've asked so nicely...
yes, you can call him Dave.
Well, why not?
Least I can do to make 'em happy.
Poor little mites.
Have you heard from Charlie?
No, I won't now. I suppose he won't be at the funeral.
Well, Jack says his sisters can't make it.
Oh, well, just be you and me then.
You've been a godsend to Jack.
I found a visitor outside.
It's your Uncle Danny.
What are you doing here?
Got compassionate leave. Thought you might want some help.
You all right, Donna. Welcome to Shupper Club.
Oi, Whit, you didn't tell me The Crankies were in.
Can I tempt you with a traditional Burns Supper?
Sheeps lungs and mash? I don't think so.
-I like you your hair, Donna.
-Thanks. Fancied a change.
Rusty Nail? I mixed it myself with the best Scotch in the house.
Now you're talking.
Here, Mick, what time you Addressing the Haggis?
Well, it's not a proper Burns Night unless you Address the Haggis.
If Linda was here there'd be pipers, Highland flingers, the lot.
Yeah, well, technically, it ain't Burns Night
till next Wednesday, is it, so...?
That's it, Whit. This is a Scottish-themed night.
We're having a little nod to the Burns thing.
Ian can do the Address.
He's got Scottish ancestry. Go on, look it up on your phone.
Oh, well great. Thanks.
I'm sure there's a wee dram in it for you, eh?
Definitely. Of course there is. No. Sorted, yeah, yeah.
Pint, please, Shirl.
-You had a tough day?
-Oh, no worse than usual.
Nan. Thank you for coming.
What are you having?
-You get it.
Well, maybe the dad weren't interested.
She brought those girls up pretty much on her own.
You'd think she'd know better at her age.
I mean, she is nearly 50.
If you're slagging my mum off, don't.
We weren't, love.
We were just genuinely concerned about how she's coping.
Well, she could use a little empathy.
Denise, she took me into her confidence,
but I had no influence at all.
I mean, you know how headstrong your daughter is.
I've rung social services.
I'd have to drag Denise through the courts to stop this.
No, we should respect her decision.
Even if she's making a mistake?
I'm just so upset she's denied me the chance of a little grandson.
You may not have a grandson, but you still have a daughter.
And right now she needs you more than she would admit.
She was always wilful, Denise.
I do want to help her.
I don't know how.
We just need to support her through this.
Oh, families are complicated, aren't they?
I'm not getting any younger.
Sometimes I feel like time's running out.
So, what, you are going to see her, then?
I'll call by, yeah.
Tina, I'm so sorry. Emin has been stuck on the Tube.
-He should be here any minute though.
-It's fine, it's fine.
What is it - coffee, love? I'll bring it over.
What is it?
I think Babe's done something to the coffee machine.
But I've no idea what.
Oh, that vindictive cow!
Yeah, look, I've checked it
and I can't find anything wrong with the beans or the machine.
Have you tried drinking it?
It tasted weird, I think.
What has she done?!
Poor devil! see him owre his trash,
As feckless as a wither'd rash,
His spindle shank, a guid whip-lash,
His nieve a nit;
Thro' bloody flood or field to dash,
O how unfit!
Do you need a hand?
No, got it covered, ta.
You must be cream crackered anyway.
Come on, then. Tell me how your interview went?
Well, they didn't like me from the off,
so I didn't stand a chance. Weren't really me anyway.
I'll get something else.
And I'll make sure it's better pay,
and that way I can pay you back sooner.
Gie her a Haggis!
Give it up for Mr McBeale!
What have you done?!
Nice to see loyalty's alive and kicking.
Hold up, what's going on?
-You won't mind drinking this, then.
Babe's done something to the coffee.
Drink it. Or I swear, I'll force this down you.
Hold on, Mum. What's she supposed to have done?
Just tell us what's in it, Babe.
- In our coffee? - Tina's drunk some.
-I think I'm going to puke.
-Is this for real?
Have you totally gone off your trolley?
Kathy and our very own traitor here,
are deliberately trying to wreck our trade.
- I should be calling the police. - Too right.
No, no, there's no need for that.
It's some sort of mistake, all right?
You don't expect us to pay for this now, do you?
No, no. Er...
Scotch on the house, for everyone!
Can I have some water, please? And a bucket.
Chelsea sends her love.
I suppose she's totally cool with all this.
She ain't here. You are.
this whole thing, you know, it's been way harder than I expected.
Darling, you know I didn't mean what I said.
I did think you'd be wasting your life with another kid.
I shouldn't have said it.
I'd already made up my mind before then.
Why didn't you say?
Maybe because I thought you'd try and talk me out of it.
I'd got used to the idea of a baby.
Your little brother.
I'm so sorry.
Auntie Kim may never get it.
But Nan's coming around.
And I am not going anywhere.
That means the world to me.
You know that?
Oi. Come here!
What is going on in that swede of yours?
I swear, Mick.
That Kathy's out to finish us.
What are you talking about? You're doing that all on your tod!
I only ever do my best for this family.
Oh, your best? Is that what you call it?
You seriously need help, Babe. Tina's in a right state.
I've had to pay 'em all back for their grub.
You know what a state we're in!
-You don't know what Kathy said.
-I don't care!
All right, Mick, just go upstairs, yeah?
We'll sort things out down here.
Yeah, you're tired, emotional.
Missing your Linda.
I'm telling you now...
-I'm telling you, one more thing,
just one more thing, and you will never set foot in this pub again.
Do you understand me?!
Tensions remain high for the Fox family following recent events.
Things go from bad to worse for Mick.
