-Hi.

-Hey.

0:00:270:00:29

How comes you're getting all done up?

0:00:340:00:36

Night out with Beanbag and his wife.

0:00:360:00:39

Oh, yeah. Oh, no, I should have rung!

0:00:390:00:42

I'm sorry, they can't make it any more.

0:00:420:00:45

Why?

0:00:450:00:47

Yeah, he's got this new job in Dover and he's got to get up early.

0:00:470:00:50

-Dover? What's he doing down there?

-Security.

0:00:500:00:53

It's probably for the best anyway - we don't want to blow the entire budget on Beanbag, do we?

0:00:530:00:58

-Abs...

-I've come to get my stuff.

-Abs.

0:01:060:01:08

I'm really sorry, I was out of order.

0:01:100:01:13

I should never, ever have spoke to you like that.

0:01:130:01:16

I was just trying to do a good job and you made me feel...

0:01:160:01:20

small.

0:01:200:01:21

I know, I know.

0:01:210:01:23

And hand on heart, I've got nothing but respect for you, because

0:01:230:01:26

dealing with Babe - that's not easy, that takes heart and spirit.

0:01:260:01:29

And I know you're going to do wonderful things in

0:01:290:01:32

that kitchen, all right? All right, Mum?

0:01:320:01:34

Right.

0:01:340:01:36

You crack on.

0:01:360:01:38

Just seen a smashed TV outside that student house,

0:01:380:01:40

they're pumping out the tunes already.

0:01:400:01:42

Two parties in two nights, that's going some.

0:01:420:01:45

-It's the same party.

-Think I picked the wrong uni.

0:01:450:01:47

Oi, I'm not paying for you to get a degree in getting off your nut.

0:01:470:01:50

Do we have to keep Abi on the pay roll?

0:01:500:01:52

Yeah, that's the spirit. She's a team player, that one.

0:01:520:01:54

-Do you need me to work the bar tonight?

-No, you've got that essay to write.

0:01:540:01:57

-Yeah, but I thought...

-No, no, no, it's all right - me and your nan have got it covered.

0:01:570:02:01

Cool - I'm going to do some work in the cafe, then.

0:02:010:02:04

Hi.

0:02:190:02:21

No, it's Whitney, it's Whitney. Lee asked me to call.

0:02:210:02:24

Yeah. Yeah, and I heard about you being

0:02:250:02:28

a lightweight, which ain't like you, is it?

0:02:280:02:30

No, I know, I know.

0:02:310:02:33

But it is a new job, so you should celebrate.

0:02:330:02:36

Oh, don't be boring, come on, it's a few drinks.

0:02:390:02:41

If you're lucky, I'll buy you some chips. On us, obviously.

0:02:410:02:45

Great, great, all right, well, I'll see you both in a bit.

0:02:490:02:52

All right. Bye.

0:02:520:02:54

Guess what?

0:03:050:03:07

Beanbag just called - he said he can make it and he's going

0:03:070:03:10

to meet us at the Vic in a bit.

0:03:100:03:12

You answered my phone?

0:03:120:03:13

Yeah, I didn't think you'd mind.

0:03:130:03:15

We can't really afford it.

0:03:150:03:17

Yes, we can - with the money that Bianca gave me.

0:03:170:03:19

Why are you so keen on going anyway?

0:03:190:03:21

Because, Lee, please, it's a night out and we deserve a laugh, don't we?

0:03:210:03:25

Yeah?

0:03:270:03:29

-You still not found them yet?

-Listen, it doesn't matter.

0:03:300:03:32

It doesn't matter about the rings,

0:03:320:03:34

it's not important. It's what it meant to me.

0:03:340:03:36

OK.

0:03:360:03:38

-Get ready, yeah?

-OK.

0:03:380:03:40

No, that's what I'm saying - them bins still ain't gone.

0:03:430:03:46

And have you heard these students here next door?

0:03:460:03:49

Yeah? Well, they're partying all hours.

0:03:510:03:54

It ain't right, you know, cos this is a family area.

0:03:540:03:57

Oh, in writing? Or should I send a carrier pigeon?

0:03:580:04:02

Yes, I am being sarcastic!

0:04:030:04:06

Fine, I'll send you an e-mail. Come on.

0:04:060:04:08

KIM LAUGHS

0:04:080:04:10

KIM CONTINUES TO LAUGH

0:04:120:04:14

What's this?

0:04:160:04:17

And...breathe.

0:04:200:04:24

-You look like you could do with a drink.

-Ohh!

0:04:240:04:27

Yeah, that'd be nice,

0:04:270:04:29

but I've got my new book from Jorgen and I can't get left behind.

0:04:290:04:32

Oh, please. I need help doing Pearl's birthday.

0:04:320:04:36

-Who's got Pearl?

-Patrick.

0:04:360:04:38

Oh, right, so you was counting on me to say yes?

0:04:380:04:41

Well, yeah. You're Pearl's aunt.

0:04:410:04:44

Come on.

0:04:440:04:46

Go on, then.

0:04:470:04:49

Yeah, just the one, but... gimme give me a second, right?

0:04:490:04:51

OK.

0:04:510:04:53

That's ridiculous!

0:04:530:04:55

Hello? Anyone home?

0:05:010:05:03

Louise? Denny?

0:05:050:05:07

I've bought some pizza - do you want some?

0:05:090:05:12

MUFFLED MUSIC FROM PARTY

0:05:210:05:25

HE PANTS

0:06:000:06:03

You all right? Did you push yourself?

0:06:030:06:05

Yeah, I really needed it.

0:06:050:06:07

Listen, Jack...

0:06:070:06:08

Jack.

0:06:080:06:10

What, you let her in here?

0:06:100:06:11

-Yeah, cos Amy saw her, I didn't want to make a scene, did I?

-Well I'll be happy to.

0:06:110:06:14

You can throw me out again, but do you really want to deal with the consequences?

0:06:140:06:18

-Deal with the consequences?

-Jack, come here.

-You are unbelievable.

-Come here.

0:06:180:06:22

Just calm down, all right?

0:06:220:06:23

Just hear her out, for Matthew's sake.

0:06:230:06:27

Just make her think you're listening.

0:06:270:06:29

JACK SIGHS

0:06:290:06:30

-Mate, I can't even look at her.

-Listen, listen, all right,

0:06:300:06:33

if you get angry with her, she's going to win.

0:06:330:06:35

Just be smarter than that.

0:06:350:06:37

I'll put the kids to bed. Just hear her out, all right?

0:06:400:06:44

GIRL SINGING AND PLAYING GUITAR

0:06:530:06:58

SINGING CONTINUES

0:07:110:07:14

# I won't go down with this ship

0:07:170:07:21

# And I won't put my hands up... #

0:07:210:07:26

What are you doing?

0:07:260:07:27

Sorry, sorry, I didn't want to interrupt you.

0:07:270:07:30

Sounded lovely.

0:07:300:07:31

Yeah, right(!)

0:07:310:07:32

No, no, really. It's great. Wish I had a voice like that.

0:07:320:07:37

So, go on - let's hear it again.

0:07:370:07:39

SHE STARTS PLAYING AGAIN

0:07:420:07:45

-Here they are.

-Hey.

0:07:450:07:48

The beautiful couple.

0:07:480:07:49

-And me and all.

-Come here.

0:07:490:07:51

-Good to see you.

-Yeah, and you.

0:07:510:07:54

Here you are, I've got you a pint.

0:07:540:07:56

-So, congratulations on your new job.

-Oh, cheers.

0:07:560:07:59

So, go on, then, tell us more. What's it all about?

0:07:590:08:02

Sorry, mate. Security job down in Dover. Sweet money.

0:08:040:08:08

Eight-hour shifts. Food and accommodation up front.

0:08:080:08:11

-Wow - that sounds good, don't it, Lee?

-Yeah.

0:08:110:08:14

So, what, do you need experience for that?

0:08:140:08:17

Nah, ex-Army - they lap it up.

0:08:170:08:19

Oh, really?

0:08:190:08:20

OK, so, for the guest list, I'm thinking 20 on the shortlist

0:08:210:08:27

and five on the reserves.

0:08:270:08:28

Wow, so, what, me and Patrick are going to make that cut, then?

0:08:280:08:31

-Course. Pearl's always going on about her Auntie Dee.

-Aww.

0:08:310:08:35

Even though we haven't seen you for the last few days.

0:08:350:08:38

-Has it been that long?

-What, been busy?

0:08:380:08:40

Well, yeah.

0:08:400:08:41

Yesterday, I spent nearly two hours on the phone,

0:08:410:08:44

being put through to, like, a million different departments.

0:08:440:08:47

Honestly, I thought I was going mad - it was like this sort of Kafkaesque nightmare.

0:08:470:08:51

Kaf who?

0:08:510:08:53

Sorry. Get me!

0:08:530:08:56

Jorgen would be impressed. Kafka - he's like this...

0:08:560:08:59

His characters are seriously trippy...

0:08:590:09:02

Shall we get back to Pearl's guest list, yeah?

0:09:040:09:07

Er, Mother?

0:09:070:09:09

Fag break.

0:09:090:09:11

'So?'

0:09:110:09:12

I appreciate emotions were running high,

0:09:120:09:15

and I hold my hands up - getting Amy's ears pierced

0:09:150:09:18

without talking to you first was thoughtless.

0:09:180:09:20

But my intentions were good.

0:09:200:09:23

I don't want her looking up to her mother as a role model.

0:09:230:09:25

OK, but Jack, what you have to understand is that little girls do idolise their mothers.

0:09:250:09:30

And now that Roxy's gone, her presence is even more powerful.

0:09:300:09:33

Which is why I have to be extra careful.

0:09:330:09:37

Amy is a sponge, all right? She picks up on everything.

0:09:370:09:39

Agreed. I only want what's best for her.

0:09:390:09:42

What? You don't believe me?

0:09:440:09:46

Why are you really here, Glenda?

0:09:470:09:49

-Trying to talk sense into you.

-No, I mean in here, in our lives?

0:09:490:09:53

I'm their grandmother.

0:09:530:09:54

That's never mattered before, why does it matter now?

0:09:540:09:57

-I would have thought that was perfectly obvious.

-If you were a normal mum.

0:09:570:10:01

-But we both know you've never been that.

-Excuse me?

0:10:010:10:04

Do I have to spell it out to you?

0:10:040:10:06

You kissed me.

0:10:060:10:07

What?

0:10:070:10:08

You heard.

0:10:080:10:10

On the cheek! When you were lying down with your daughter!

0:10:100:10:13

You're everywhere I turn, all right?

0:10:130:10:15

Flicking your hair, making eyes, you're just like Roxy.

0:10:150:10:18

Do you think I wouldn't have noticed, eh?

0:10:180:10:20

What, one night I'd just invite you into my bed?

0:10:200:10:23

Ask the kids to start calling you Mummy?

0:10:230:10:25

Stop it!

0:10:250:10:26

You should be in bed.

0:10:260:10:28

I can't sleep. I can hear you from upstairs!

0:10:280:10:31

Sorry, I was just in with the boys.

0:10:310:10:33

Right, come on, let's go back to bed.

0:10:330:10:34

Is this because of the earrings?

0:10:340:10:35

Darling, go upstairs with Uncle Max. I'll be up there in a minute.

0:10:350:10:38

I want Granny to tuck me in.

0:10:380:10:40

-No!

-I hate you!

0:10:400:10:41

Are you sure you know what's best for that girl?

0:10:450:10:48

I hate it how Valentine's Day makes you feel like a right loser, unless you're all loved up.

0:10:520:10:57

You're not alone. Hardly any bookings at the Vic.

0:10:570:10:59

-Really? Apparently, Beale's is full.

-Poor Dad.

0:10:590:11:03

-Hello.

-All right.

0:11:030:11:04

"Modern perspectives on contractual obligation".

0:11:060:11:10

What's that all about?

0:11:100:11:12

It's about the fact we increasingly make verbal contracts - not everything's written down.

0:11:120:11:16

I do know what verbal means.

0:11:160:11:18

So I'm exploring the impact of that on the validity of written contracts, in my dissertation.

0:11:180:11:22

Right, so, if you work for a family business,

0:11:220:11:26

then it's all down to trust on what set hours you do.

0:11:260:11:29

Yeah, yeah, exactly.

0:11:290:11:32

You're smart.

0:11:320:11:33

Look, your dad won't ask you, but he needs you.

0:11:330:11:36

We're packed over there and we're drowning.

0:11:360:11:38

I've got a deadline.

0:11:380:11:40

Well, do an all-nighter - that's what students do!

0:11:400:11:43

Good boy.

0:11:460:11:48

Shirley - just the woman.

0:11:490:11:50

Listen, Tina's been telling me about Mick's fine. I feel terrible.

0:11:500:11:55

It's not your fault.

0:11:550:11:56

No, but even so... Look, I might have thought of a way to help.

0:11:560:12:02

# I'm waiting up in bed for you... #

0:12:040:12:10

Oh! That was wicked!

0:12:110:12:14

Is that a word any more?

0:12:140:12:16

Yeah. Yeah, wicked's still wicked, I guess.

0:12:160:12:19

So, I saw you yesterday, looking a bit lonesome.

0:12:200:12:24

Not sure what "lonesome" is.

0:12:250:12:28

Sounds like something you'd say in the Wild West.

0:12:280:12:30

All right - looking a bit like a Billy no-mates!

0:12:300:12:35

Everything all right?

0:12:350:12:37

Me and Lou fell out.

0:12:370:12:38

How come?

0:12:380:12:40

Because of Shaki.

0:12:400:12:42

-She jealous?

-No.

0:12:420:12:45

No, but she makes me choose between them and then I get stuck

0:12:450:12:49

in the middle and now neither of them are talking to me.

0:12:490:12:53

Why, what happened?

0:12:530:12:55

Something that I'm not proud of, so please don't ask me,

0:12:560:13:01

I don't think I could say it out loud.

0:13:010:13:03

OK. Fair enough.

0:13:030:13:05

I'm sure it can't be that bad.

0:13:060:13:08

It is. It's a nightmare and I'm not waking up.

0:13:080:13:11

I know that's how it feels when emotions run away with you,

0:13:110:13:13

but I promise you, in a couple of months, you'll look back at this

0:13:130:13:17

and you won't even remember what you were so upset about.

0:13:170:13:21

We all make mistakes and we all do things we're not proud of,

0:13:210:13:24

but you'll learn.

0:13:240:13:25

You'll carry on, you'll make a few more.

0:13:270:13:30

That seems to be how life goes.

0:13:300:13:32

Why are you so cool and Dad is just so...

0:13:340:13:38

What?

0:13:380:13:40

Dad-like.

0:13:400:13:41

Come on - talking of my brother, he'll be worried.

0:13:410:13:45

-Let's get you home. It's freezing!

-I know.

0:13:450:13:48

Right, I've finished a draft on my abstract, so I can help out.

0:13:480:13:51

Really?

0:13:510:13:53

And Kathy's offered to do us some dinners at the cafe - cost price.

0:13:530:13:55

And Ian's all right about that, is he?

0:13:550:13:57

I doubt it. But who cares? She feels bad about the fine.

0:13:570:14:00

Touch!

0:14:000:14:02

Do you want another one?

0:14:040:14:05

Mm, I probably shouldn't.

0:14:050:14:06

That's a yes, then.

0:14:060:14:08

Go on, Lee, get them in. I started a tab.

0:14:080:14:10

All right.

0:14:100:14:11

So, this security firm - it sounds all right.

0:14:130:14:18

But it must get a bit boring sometimes,

0:14:180:14:20

when you've got to work with some old bloke.

0:14:200:14:22

Well...

0:14:220:14:24

It'd be good to have a mate there, wouldn't it?

0:14:240:14:26

I thought Lee had a job?

0:14:260:14:29

Yeah, yeah, he does, but he hates it, you know,

0:14:290:14:33

he's stuck behind a computer all day.

0:14:330:14:35

And I suppose, when you've had a taste of the army life -

0:14:350:14:38

all the banter and that - it's hard, innit, going into a normal job?

0:14:380:14:42

Yeah, I guess so.

0:14:420:14:44

So, put a word in, will you?

0:14:450:14:49

What's in it for me?

0:14:500:14:53

A warm glow?

0:14:530:14:55

HE CHUCKLES

0:14:550:14:59

Go on, then, you've twisted my arm.

0:14:590:15:01

Thank you. That's brilliant.

0:15:010:15:03

Don't say to Lee that I said nothing.

0:15:030:15:05

Don't want him thinking he's been hen-pecked, do we?

0:15:050:15:08

Ta, mate.

0:15:100:15:11

I want a karaoke machine. That's what I want.

0:15:110:15:14

No, seriously.

0:15:160:15:17

After last year's bouncy castle, people expect a party.

0:15:170:15:21

Kim, Pearl is turning two.

0:15:210:15:22

She's hardly going to be there belting out Whitney!

0:15:220:15:25

I'll sing it. It'll be cute.

0:15:250:15:27

You know, when Libby and Chelsea were that age,

0:15:270:15:29

we just had a few sandwiches and a hedgehog cake.

0:15:290:15:31

So, what you saying? You think she's spoilt, then? Yeah?

0:15:310:15:35

Course not, no. She's gorgeous.

0:15:350:15:38

And I know you adore her, but it doesn't mean that you have

0:15:380:15:40

to take out a second mortgage to prove it.

0:15:400:15:43

I'm going to the ladies.

0:15:450:15:47

I want you to know that whatever you've been telling yourself -

0:15:490:15:52

I don't see you that way, Jack.

0:15:520:15:54

The only reason I'm here is because

0:15:540:15:56

I'm worried sick about Amy and Matthew.

0:15:560:15:59

Hell, I'm even worried about Ricky.

0:15:590:16:01

One minute they've got two parents and an auntie,

0:16:010:16:04

and the next, a father who keeps seeing ghosts wherever he turns.

0:16:040:16:09

You really want to be involved in these kids' lives?

0:16:090:16:12

More than anything.

0:16:120:16:14

OK.

0:16:160:16:17

Then, great.

0:16:180:16:20

You take them.

0:16:210:16:23

Amy and Matthew. You have them.

0:16:230:16:25

-Jack, I...

-No listen, I'm run off my feet.

0:16:250:16:28

And you're worried sick.

0:16:280:16:30

All right, this could be your chance to really step up.

0:16:300:16:33

OK, Jack, I can see what you're doing here.

0:16:330:16:35

Calling my bluff - very, very clever...

0:16:350:16:37

This is what you wanted, innit?

0:16:370:16:39

Getting up with them every single day.

0:16:390:16:41

Getting them dressed, ready for school.

0:16:410:16:44

Ferrying them about.

0:16:440:16:45

Getting up with them in the night.

0:16:460:16:48

Taking days off work when they're sick.

0:16:500:16:52

Telling them you love them,

0:16:540:16:55

even though they just told you they hate you.

0:16:550:16:58

Look, I never said... I just meant that I want...

0:16:580:17:02

What? Don't you want to do it?

0:17:020:17:04

Not on my own.

0:17:040:17:05

What, you want to be able to pick and choose what suits you?

0:17:050:17:08

Well, I'm not their mother, am I?

0:17:080:17:10

No, you're not.

0:17:100:17:13

So, stop pretending.

0:17:130:17:16

Have you heard of M? She's this Scandinavian electronic pop artist.

0:17:210:17:25

She's really good, I think you might like her...

0:17:250:17:27

-I'll have a listen.

-I wondered where you'd got to.

0:17:270:17:30

Fish and chips on a Friday - legend.

0:17:300:17:33

Someone's got to keep up the old traditions.

0:17:330:17:35

Your daughter's just been educating me on her music.

0:17:350:17:38

Oh, right. Been teaching her about the Beatles, have you?

0:17:380:17:41

Ha, ha!

0:17:410:17:42

Well, we both like The Smiths - we think they're wicked.

0:17:420:17:45

-You joining us?

-I've eaten with Lily.

0:17:470:17:49

But I'm sure I could force a few down.

0:17:490:17:52

Yeah - roll me in.

0:17:520:17:54

KNOCK AT DOOR Reckon that'll be for Bex.

0:17:540:17:57

Go on, then.

0:17:590:18:00

What have we got here, then?

0:18:040:18:06

Er, Michelle text. Said I could come round.

0:18:130:18:16

Right, you better come in, then.

0:18:160:18:19

What are you boys talking about?

0:18:260:18:28

Oh, nothing much.

0:18:280:18:30

Oh, yeah - Lee, mate, I was thinking...

0:18:320:18:36

-you'd be a great fit down in Dover.

-Eh?

0:18:360:18:39

Well, you know, if you wanted a change of scene.

0:18:390:18:42

I could always see if there's some positions available.

0:18:420:18:46

Really?

0:18:460:18:47

Wow, that sounds great, doesn't it?

0:18:470:18:49

But it's in Dover - you wouldn't want me gone that much, would you?

0:18:490:18:53

Well, I'd be all right, if it meant that you were happy.

0:18:530:18:57

Well, all right, yeah, cheers, mate, I'll have a think about it.

0:18:570:19:00

I never thought you were cut out for city life, anyway.

0:19:000:19:03

HE CHUCKLES

0:19:030:19:06

Oi! I didn't ask you back here to skive.

0:19:080:19:11

-Anti-Valentines?

-What's this?

0:19:150:19:18

Something Tina said earlier.

0:19:180:19:20

Valentine's is all right if you're loved up,

0:19:200:19:22

-but let's face it, there's plenty of people round here who aren't.

-So?

0:19:220:19:25

So, we target them. Make them feel included.

0:19:250:19:28

No love songs, no candles and definitely no kissing.

0:19:280:19:33

Just a pub full of single people who want to feel normal.

0:19:330:19:36

Genius.

0:19:360:19:37

Those uni fees didn't go to waste after all.

0:19:370:19:40

Listen, the pub's quietened down - why don't you go and do

0:19:400:19:43

one of your abstracts or whatever it is you do?

0:19:430:19:47

Right, that's it - it's time for me to head.

0:19:470:19:50

What? We haven't even decided on the catering yet.

0:19:500:19:53

Kim, sorry, but you've got everything sorted. You don't need me.

0:19:530:19:57

Right, I see.

0:19:580:20:00

I'll be there with a present and a smile. What more do you need?

0:20:000:20:03

Nothing. Nothing at all.

0:20:030:20:06

Enjoy your book.

0:20:060:20:08

Yeah, you're right, I've never really been a maternal person.

0:20:110:20:15

It doesn't come naturally to me, not like other women.

0:20:160:20:20

The only way I've ever known how to be with people

0:20:220:20:25

is to turn it on, make them like me.

0:20:250:20:30

Want me.

0:20:300:20:31

Even with little Amy.

0:20:330:20:35

I don't even know I'm doing it sometimes.

0:20:360:20:39

Pathetic, isn't it?

0:20:400:20:42

It's just, we've become so close.

0:20:480:20:51

Can I visit sometimes?

0:21:000:21:02

Look, Glenda...

0:21:050:21:07

..admitting this now - probably the most unselfish act of your life.

0:21:080:21:12

You're a good man, Jack.

0:21:250:21:27

The kids are lucky to have you.

0:21:310:21:33

Take care of yourself.

0:21:370:21:38

You off?

0:21:450:21:47

Don't think I haven't noticed.

0:21:500:21:52

What do you mean?

0:21:520:21:54

You're the one pulling the strings around here.

0:21:540:21:57

You don't fool me.

0:21:570:21:59

And when Jack's out of this fog, he'll see it too.

0:22:000:22:03

Goodnight, Glenda.

0:22:060:22:07

I want to pay the tab.

0:22:160:22:18

You paying Beanbag's and all?

0:22:180:22:20

Yeah. It's been worth it.

0:22:200:22:22

I managed to get Lee a job - hopefully.

0:22:220:22:24

See that boy, he don't deserve you.

0:22:250:22:27

She must be pretty desperate to get you out the house, mate.

0:22:290:22:33

How do you mean?

0:22:330:22:35

All this - been practically licking my jacksy all night.

0:22:360:22:40

I mean, not that I'm complaining.

0:22:400:22:42

Have I put my foot in it?

0:22:440:22:46

She was the one who suggested I have a word with my boss, you know?

0:22:470:22:50

She also rang me up and practically begged me to come out tonight.

0:22:500:22:54

Think she fancies me, mate.

0:22:540:22:56

HE CHUCKLES

0:22:560:22:58

Thank you, Patrick. I really appreciate it.

0:22:590:23:02

Hey, how did it go?

0:23:020:23:03

Fine.

0:23:030:23:05

Kim?

0:23:050:23:06

It's nothing, Patrick. Please, just go home, yeah?

0:23:060:23:10

Yeah.

0:23:100:23:11

She here?

0:23:150:23:17

Yeah.

0:23:170:23:18

What you doing here?

0:23:190:23:21

I thought you had a book to read about being on the phone to the council?

0:23:210:23:24

-Kim, what is all this about?

-Nothing.

0:23:240:23:26

I'm fine.

0:23:270:23:29

I don't know why both of you are making eyes at each other.

0:23:300:23:33

I'm fine.

0:23:330:23:34

OK, how about I go and put the kettle on and you can tell me

0:23:380:23:42

what this is really about?

0:23:420:23:43

Night, losers. Thanks for the booze-up.

0:23:490:23:53

That's our pleasure, ain't it, Lee?

0:23:530:23:56

Don't forget to put that word in.

0:23:560:23:58

-All right. Mwah!

-Bye!

0:23:580:24:00

All right, mate - get home safe, yeah?

0:24:000:24:02

That was fun, weren't it?

0:24:020:24:04

What?

0:24:040:24:06

If you call an evening being humiliated by your wife

0:24:060:24:09

in front of your mate "fun", then, yeah,

0:24:090:24:10

I had the time of my life, thanks.

0:24:100:24:12

'What is it, Kim?'

0:24:140:24:15

Is it because you think I don't care about Pearl enough

0:24:160:24:20

to buy her a gold plated pony?

0:24:200:24:22

-You think I'm that shallow?

-Sometimes.

0:24:230:24:26

Course I don't.

0:24:270:24:29

But you do!

0:24:290:24:30

You think I'm shallow and vain and a total nightmare, like Mum.

0:24:300:24:36

Sorry, Emerald.

0:24:360:24:38

You're nothing like her.

0:24:380:24:39

Course I am. I'm related to her, remember.

0:24:390:24:42

You're the one that got off scot-free.

0:24:420:24:44

What's that supposed to mean?

0:24:440:24:46

I should be happy that I'm an orphan?

0:24:460:24:47

Well, it can't be bad news, is it?

0:24:470:24:49

Finding out that you don't share genes with that woman...

0:24:490:24:52

with me.

0:24:520:24:53

Is that what you think?

0:24:530:24:55

Look, I don't blame you, Dee.

0:24:580:25:00

You know, me and you have always been like chalk and cheese.

0:25:020:25:06

It used to be funny.

0:25:060:25:08

But now it makes a whole lot of sense.

0:25:080:25:11

What does that mean?

0:25:110:25:12

Well, look at us.

0:25:120:25:14

You're clever, skinny, beautiful.

0:25:140:25:18

Me? I'm ditzy, not so skinny...

0:25:180:25:22

I'm gorgeous, but I would never be in your league.

0:25:220:25:25

Oh, come on, Kim...

0:25:250:25:27

But it's true. We have nothing in common.

0:25:270:25:30

Apart from the fact that, you know, we're both gobby, stubborn,

0:25:300:25:34

and do you want to know what else?

0:25:340:25:36

What?

0:25:360:25:38

We are both loyal.

0:25:380:25:40

And that is something that Emerald doesn't even know the meaning of.

0:25:400:25:43

Not to mention, we are both kind of beautiful.

0:25:430:25:47

Listen, we might not share the same DNA.

0:25:470:25:51

That don't mean that we ain't sisters.

0:25:510:25:53

We grew up together and, you know, you're my girl.

0:25:530:25:58

My life might be changing, but you...

0:25:580:26:01

..you are my anchor.

0:26:030:26:05

And you ain't going to get rid of me that easily.

0:26:050:26:08

So, if you insist,

0:26:080:26:12

I will dress up as Elsa

0:26:120:26:14

and perform Frozen at Pearl's birthday.

0:26:140:26:17

I'm sorry, I'll think you'll find that that is my gig.

0:26:170:26:21

-Oh.

-You can be the other one.

0:26:210:26:23

-What's the other one?

-The other sister. Anna.

0:26:230:26:25

Yeah, but, ain't that the one with no superpowers?

0:26:250:26:27

Yeah. Problem?

0:26:270:26:29

Let it go!

0:26:300:26:31

DENISE LAUGHS

0:26:330:26:34

Kim!

0:26:360:26:38

I really don't get what the big deal is, Lee.

0:26:380:26:41

Yeah, OK, OK, I did say some things to Beanbag

0:26:410:26:44

about you wanting to change jobs, but so what?

0:26:440:26:48

I said them things cos I thought he might be able to help you.

0:26:480:26:51

Only cos you were practically sat on his lap with your tongue hanging out.

0:26:510:26:54

It wouldn't surprise me if you had just stuck it down his throat.

0:26:540:26:57

How dare you!

0:26:570:26:58

-You were flirting.

-And?

-Don't deny it.

0:26:580:27:00

And? So what? It was only a bit, it was harmless.

0:27:000:27:03

Oh, right. So is that how you accidentally lost your rings, is it?

0:27:030:27:05

So you could go to the bar and do a harmless bit of flirting

0:27:050:27:08

-and pretend it's for your charity case husband?

-Why are you being like that?

0:27:080:27:11

You're being ridiculous, Lee. You know I would never do anything like that to you.

0:27:110:27:14

-I love you and I'm with you.

-Yeah, well, you've got a funny way of showing it.

0:27:140:27:18

I would never, ever, take off my ring.

0:27:180:27:21

You're hiding something.

0:27:250:27:27

I know you are.

0:27:270:27:28

Yeah. OK, fine, fine.

0:27:280:27:32

I didn't lose the rings.

0:27:320:27:34

I pawned them.

0:27:340:27:36

-You did what?

-Yeah.

0:27:360:27:38

The money that I said came from Bianca - well, it didn't.

0:27:380:27:40

It didn't. OK?

0:27:400:27:42

You've been lying to me?

0:27:420:27:44

Well, that's a bit rich coming from you, don't you think?

0:27:440:27:47

Look, Lee, just stop. I was...

0:27:490:27:53

I thought you deserved a night out.

0:27:530:27:55

I thought it might get you in the right frame of mind.

0:27:550:27:58

I didn't know how else to get the cash, OK?

0:27:580:28:01

Can we just drop it now? Please?

0:28:020:28:05

Everything worked out, didn't it?

0:28:050:28:08

And you know, when you do get your new job and money starts

0:28:080:28:10

coming in, I will buy those rings back.

0:28:100:28:13

-How could you do this to me?

-Do what?

0:28:130:28:16

I'm a grown man, Whit!

0:28:160:28:18

Well, then start acting like one, then, Lee!

0:28:180:28:21

Cos seriously - I can't do this any more. I can't.

0:28:210:28:24

I put up with more than most women, right?

0:28:240:28:27

So, can you imagine your mum doing what I've done tonight?

0:28:270:28:31

No, you can't, can you?

0:28:310:28:33

Cos you know what - your dad, your dad is a fighter. And you know that.

0:28:330:28:36

And you know that when he gets knocked down,

0:28:360:28:38

-he picks himself straight back up again.

-Shut up.

0:28:380:28:41

And do you know what I wouldn't give for you to be just a little bit more like him?

0:28:410:28:45

-I said shut up!

-But you won't and you never will be,

0:28:450:28:47

because you mope around, feeling sorry for yourself, don't you?

0:28:470:28:50

And you leave it all down to me. Down to me to pick up the pieces.

0:28:500:28:53

And yeah, your dad did speak to me tonight.

0:28:530:28:55

He did say something.

0:28:550:28:56

He said that you don't deserve me.

0:28:560:28:58

And do you know what? I am beginning to think he's right.

0:28:580:29:02

SHE SOBS

0:29:100:29:12

So, it's been the week from hell,

0:29:150:29:18

but do you know what? It's going to be all right.

0:29:180:29:22

Cos when it comes on top, I've got you little mob wrapped round me.

0:29:220:29:27

To the Carters.

0:29:270:29:28

-ALL:

-The Carters.

0:29:280:29:30

Whit? Whit, please, forgive me.

0:29:320:29:35

Whit, please, forgive me, I...

0:29:370:29:40

I didn't mean to.

0:29:400:29:41

Whit, please, talk to me.

0:29:430:29:45

Whit, say something.

0:29:470:29:48

Please?

0:29:500:29:51

Whit, please...

0:29:530:29:55
