What?

0:00:280:00:30

What do you mean?

0:00:340:00:35

What do you think she meant?

0:00:360:00:38

Nah.

0:00:410:00:44

No...

0:00:440:00:46

No, you're making it up.

0:00:460:00:47

Did he make you say this?

0:00:500:00:52

You really are desperate, aren't you?

0:00:520:00:54

It's true, Ben.

0:00:540:00:55

I was raped.

0:00:580:00:59

No.

0:01:010:01:02

No, you...

0:01:050:01:06

It was a long time ago, darling.

0:01:060:01:08

Luke's dad?

0:01:120:01:14

He got banged up for it,

0:01:140:01:15

which is why you can't have anything more to do

0:01:150:01:16

with that scumbag of a son of his.

0:01:160:01:18

-DOOR OPENS

-Ain't even your chips, Abi.

0:01:180:01:19

-Paid for 'em!

-Yeah.

0:01:190:01:22

All right?

0:01:220:01:23

Oh, sorry, I didn't realise we had company.

0:01:230:01:25

-Some chips here if you want them.

-He's OK. Erm...

0:01:250:01:28

He's just had a bit of a shock, that's all.

0:01:280:01:31

Why, what's happened?

0:01:310:01:32

Just, er... Just leave us alone, will you?

0:01:340:01:36

You all right?

0:01:380:01:40

Jay.

0:01:400:01:42

-Come on.

-He can't order us about in our own house.

0:01:420:01:44

-Listen, I ain't going to tell you again, all right?

-Phil...

0:01:440:01:47

Look, why don't you come home with me, OK? I...

0:01:490:01:52

I can explain.

0:01:530:01:54

I'm going to kill him!

0:01:570:01:59

Ben! Ben!

0:01:590:02:02

Kill who?

0:02:020:02:03

DOOR SLAMS

0:02:030:02:04

She lunged at me.

0:02:060:02:08

It weren't like that.

0:02:080:02:09

You didn't give me much choice, did you?

0:02:090:02:11

I pushed her away, end of. I wanted to tell you weeks ago.

0:02:110:02:14

Weeks?

0:02:140:02:15

How long has this been going on for?

0:02:150:02:17

Nothing's going on.

0:02:170:02:19

Except Bex here is...

0:02:190:02:21

I don't know, maybe she's jealous of us. I did wonder.

0:02:210:02:24

I thought she'd got over this fixation, but clearly not.

0:02:240:02:28

I thought she was going to try something tonight.

0:02:280:02:30

What?! No, no, Mum... I swear, I...

0:02:300:02:33

Why did you wait till your mum left, then?

0:02:330:02:35

See?

0:02:360:02:38

It doesn't matter why she came back.

0:02:380:02:41

You're her teacher. You're supposed to look after her.

0:02:410:02:45

Yeah, and that's exactly why we all need to sit down

0:02:450:02:47

and talk through this rationally.

0:02:470:02:49

Has he touched you?

0:02:520:02:54

She's a kid. I...

0:02:540:02:56

You kissed my daughter! You had inappropriate relations!

0:02:560:02:58

Yes, against my will.

0:02:580:03:00

-You kissed me back!

-That's not true!

0:03:000:03:01

-Get out my house.

-I wouldn't! What do you think I am?

0:03:010:03:03

I don't know. I really don't.

0:03:030:03:05

An hour ago, I thought you were the first half-decent bloke

0:03:050:03:09

-I'd met in years.

-Oh, come on!

0:03:090:03:10

But now I don't know what you are. A sex offender?

0:03:100:03:13

God! None of this is my fault!

0:03:130:03:15

-Did you kiss her back?

-Bex, look what you've done!

0:03:180:03:20

Mum!

0:03:200:03:21

Did you?

0:03:240:03:25

Is that why you were seeing me?

0:03:300:03:32

God, let go...

0:03:320:03:35

Did...you...kiss...her...back?

0:03:350:03:42

Get out of my house before I break your neck.

0:03:470:03:51

Now!

0:03:510:03:52

-No!

-Get in there!

0:03:580:04:01

You can't keep me here!

0:04:010:04:03

-Oh, Ben, for God's sake!

-I want to do something!

0:04:030:04:05

Well, you don't even know where he lives, do you?

0:04:050:04:07

I'll find him!

0:04:070:04:09

And do what, exactly? Eh? You fancy another stretch inside, do you?

0:04:090:04:12

He raped my mum!

0:04:120:04:14

The cat is out the bag now.

0:04:160:04:18

You want me to let it go? Forget about it?

0:04:180:04:22

Is that what you've done, is it, Dad?

0:04:220:04:24

Why didn't you tell me?

0:04:240:04:25

Listen, we're telling you now, Ben.

0:04:250:04:27

I hadn't seen you since you was nine years old.

0:04:270:04:29

How's a mother supposed to tell her little boy something like that?

0:04:290:04:32

HE could've said something.

0:04:320:04:33

Yeah, and telling you that when you were a kid,

0:04:330:04:35

I can see that's really going to help, innit?

0:04:350:04:37

I had a right to know!

0:04:370:04:39

Oi, oi, will you lot keep it down? I've just got Louie to sleep.

0:04:390:04:42

Sorry, Ian. We'll be quiet.

0:04:420:04:44

I bet YOU know all about it, don't you?

0:04:440:04:46

Know what?

0:04:460:04:48

Willmott-Brown. Ring any bells?

0:04:480:04:51

Luke is his son.

0:04:510:04:54

Your Luke?

0:04:560:04:57

-I found out when I went to see him.

-What, his son?

0:04:570:05:00

Good to know I'm not the only one in the dark.

0:05:000:05:02

Look, it happened nearly 30 years ago.

0:05:020:05:04

Not for me, Mum.

0:05:060:05:08

It's happening here, now!

0:05:080:05:11

I am sorry, but this ain't about you.

0:05:110:05:14

And if Luke weren't here, you still wouldn't know,

0:05:140:05:16

because it happened to me, and I decide who knows and who doesn't,

0:05:160:05:20

and I will deal with it how I want. You got that?

0:05:200:05:24

That'll be £5.60, please.

0:05:380:05:40

Get the next one ready.

0:05:400:05:42

Happy days, eh?

0:05:420:05:45

Not bad, eh?

0:05:450:05:46

See, the dough's coming in now from that crowd fundraising, innit?

0:05:460:05:49

Still got nearly 40 grand to go.

0:05:490:05:51

Linda, what about my safari supper idea?

0:05:510:05:54

OK, listen - starter at one person's house, yeah?

0:05:540:05:57

-Move along to another person's house for a main...

-Oh, yeah!

0:05:570:06:00

What, so you traipse across the Square for a bit of munch?

0:06:000:06:02

Yeah, and everyone has to buy a ticket.

0:06:020:06:05

Couple of grand a head, you said?

0:06:050:06:07

Well, they will be biting your hands off, won't they?

0:06:070:06:09

-Well...

-Have to think outside the box, Jack.

0:06:090:06:11

-It's not just about money, is it?

-No.

0:06:110:06:13

Exactly, think of the publicity, yeah?

0:06:130:06:15

We could call up the Gazette, get a photographer along.

0:06:150:06:17

Sell a couple dozen tickets, be good exposure, won't it,

0:06:170:06:20

for the online crowd thing?

0:06:200:06:23

Exactly, Billy.

0:06:230:06:24

And we could all come back to the Vic,

0:06:240:06:26

have our picture taken for the paper.

0:06:260:06:28

Service?

0:06:280:06:29

I think it's a brilliant idea, Honey.

0:06:290:06:31

I'm going to get on to it first thing.

0:06:310:06:32

Another double in there, please.

0:06:320:06:34

You ain't paid for the last two yet, mate.

0:06:340:06:37

In your own time.

0:06:400:06:41

-I've left my wallet, mate.

-Can't give you nothing for originality,

0:06:410:06:44

pal, do you know what I mean?

0:06:440:06:46

Leave it with me, I'll get it for him.

0:06:460:06:49

Go on, stick it in the old jar, the change.

0:06:490:06:51

Oh, good man, Jack. Yes, Bill?

0:06:510:06:53

I'll have a bottle for me, please.

0:06:530:06:54

Babe, what do you want? Vodka and tonic, yeah?

0:06:540:06:56

No, I've got to have a clear head, Billy.

0:06:560:06:58

I've got a safari supper to organise.

0:06:580:07:00

You thought you was on a promise!

0:07:000:07:02

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Think you need to sit down, mate.

0:07:020:07:05

What's the point?

0:07:050:07:07

-Well, you don't want to injure yourself, do you?

-So?

0:07:070:07:09

Oi, mate, what's your problem?

0:07:090:07:12

I've been stitched up.

0:07:120:07:14

Hmm.

0:07:160:07:17

You can tell me.

0:07:230:07:24

Whatever it is.

0:07:250:07:27

You know, you haven't got to be embarrassed. I want to help you.

0:07:270:07:31

Mum...

0:07:310:07:32

I know it's hard.

0:07:320:07:34

I'm a sap.

0:07:430:07:45

Is that right?

0:07:450:07:46

Those idiots that get into teaching for the holidays and the pensions -

0:07:480:07:51

that's not me. Nah.

0:07:510:07:53

I actually wanted to make a difference, you know?

0:07:540:07:57

-But the vultures are always ready to pounce on you, aren't they?

-Mmm.

0:07:580:08:02

Something goes wrong, the claws are out, it's all over.

0:08:020:08:06

It was only a kiss.

0:08:070:08:09

Nothing else.

0:08:090:08:10

Well, there's nothing ONLY about it, darling.

0:08:100:08:13

I need to know the facts.

0:08:130:08:14

Why?

0:08:160:08:17

You're not going to report him, are you?

0:08:180:08:20

No, Mum, you can't, because everyone will find out,

0:08:200:08:23

and then they'll start posting stuff online...

0:08:230:08:25

Look, I can't let him get away with this, all right?

0:08:250:08:27

-Please, I am begging you...

-What if the next girl...?

0:08:270:08:31

-What if she's a bit younger?

-You know he's not like that.

0:08:310:08:33

What if she's a little bit more in love with him, mmm?

0:08:330:08:35

-And it goes further than a kiss?

-I thought you wanted to help me.

0:08:350:08:38

I do.

0:08:380:08:40

Then, please... Please, just don't say anything.

0:08:400:08:43

SONIA SIGHS

0:08:460:08:48

OK.

0:08:480:08:50

But I need you to tell me exactly what happened.

0:08:500:08:53

So, what did you do? Muck up on your marking?

0:08:560:08:59

She wouldn't leave me alone.

0:09:010:09:03

He weren't like other teachers.

0:09:080:09:10

He was like one of us.

0:09:110:09:12

I don't like to get too familiar, you know?

0:09:130:09:16

There's a line, and you do not cross it.

0:09:160:09:19

He started to help me with my music...

0:09:200:09:23

and he was so kind, and...

0:09:230:09:25

And I just started to really like him.

0:09:280:09:31

I knew she'd had a hard time.

0:09:320:09:34

I was trying to be nice.

0:09:340:09:36

That'll teach me.

0:09:370:09:39

And then I wasn't thinking...

0:09:430:09:46

and I just kissed him.

0:09:460:09:47

Oh, love...

0:09:580:09:59

It's going to take him a while to get his head round this.

0:10:080:10:11

I know I'm struggling with it.

0:10:110:10:13

Well, when you do, maybe you can give me some tips.

0:10:130:10:15

Never goes away.

0:10:170:10:18

Wherever I am, whatever I do, it's always there.

0:10:200:10:24

Him.

0:10:240:10:25

Did you see his face? The way he looked at me?

0:10:270:10:30

Like everything's different.

0:10:300:10:31

Look, Ben's just trying to make sense of it all.

0:10:310:10:33

No, it's the same look your father gave me.

0:10:330:10:35

Flicker in the eye. I saw it.

0:10:350:10:37

He thinks I was shutting him out,

0:10:390:10:41

but I just wanted to keep it away from him.

0:10:410:10:43

For my sake, not his.

0:10:430:10:45

I just wanted one person who didn't see me as a...

0:10:460:10:50

-A victim.

-Hey!

0:10:500:10:51

Don't you use that word, OK?

0:10:520:10:54

You're a survivor.

0:10:550:10:56

All right.

0:11:000:11:02

IAN SIGHS

0:11:020:11:04

Do you think that... Luke knew what happened?

0:11:040:11:06

He knows exactly what his father did.

0:11:070:11:10

All right, then, why...?

0:11:100:11:11

It's twisted, innit?

0:11:140:11:16

Like father, like son.

0:11:160:11:17

Ben is so into him.

0:11:190:11:21

Was.

0:11:220:11:24

Past tense. I mean, he won't have anything to do with him now.

0:11:240:11:27

Luke. It's me.

0:11:400:11:42

I need to talk to you.

0:11:450:11:46

I mean it.

0:11:470:11:48

It's important.

0:11:500:11:51

-JACK:

-Sonia!

-BANGING AT DOOR

0:11:550:11:58

Sonia!

0:11:580:12:00

Son, open the door, will you?

0:12:010:12:03

All right, keep your flaming wig on.

0:12:030:12:05

All right, darling?

0:12:090:12:10

He reckons he's left his wallet here.

0:12:130:12:15

FOOTSTEPS ON STAIRS

0:12:160:12:19

You all right, Bex?

0:12:220:12:23

He can't be here.

0:12:260:12:28

Well, he's a bit half cut, but, you know, do us a favour,

0:12:290:12:31

-give him a bit of slack.

-Please let me explain, Sonia...

0:12:310:12:33

There's nothing to explain.

0:12:330:12:35

You stuck your tongue down my daughter's throat.

0:12:350:12:37

-Do what?

-Yeah.

0:12:390:12:42

Oi, you talking about Bex?

0:12:420:12:44

What's he done to you?

0:12:450:12:47

Please, Uncle Jack, don't make it any worse.

0:12:470:12:48

What, you telling me I just bought drinks for this nonce?

0:12:480:12:51

One kiss, one lousy kiss. I did nothing wrong.

0:12:510:12:53

What part of this don't you understand?

0:12:530:12:55

You're supposed to be the adult here.

0:12:550:12:56

Yeah, and you've kept sniffing round her.

0:12:560:12:58

I know, and I would've done the right thing,

0:12:580:13:00

but I didn't want to ruin what we had.

0:13:000:13:03

-You called the police?

-No, not yet.

0:13:030:13:04

Oh, no, you don't.

0:13:060:13:08

They're my keys, what am I meant to...?

0:13:080:13:10

Yeah, well, as of now, you don't live there.

0:13:100:13:12

All right? You're evicted.

0:13:120:13:14

Get out.

0:13:140:13:15

Get out!

0:13:150:13:17

DOOR SLAMS

0:13:170:13:18

Sonia!

0:13:190:13:21

Sonia, please!

0:13:220:13:25

Sonia!

0:13:250:13:26

Sonia, please!

0:13:280:13:29

Sonia!

0:13:310:13:33

Just hear me out. I can't walk away.

0:13:430:13:47

There's been a misunderstanding.

0:13:480:13:50

We can be happy.

0:13:520:13:53

Just... Just give us a chance.

0:13:550:13:57

I will do anything, whatever you want.

0:13:570:13:59

-We've got a connection. You know we do.

-No.

0:14:020:14:05

-No, we don't.

-You're lying.

0:14:050:14:07

Please, just don't ever show your face round here again.

0:14:090:14:12

I love you.

0:14:150:14:16

Just go.

0:14:210:14:22

DOOR SLAMS

0:14:470:14:48

Should I check the boot?

0:15:140:15:15

I take it you didn't find him last night, then?

0:15:190:15:22

What else was I supposed to do, eh,

0:15:240:15:26

with you mooning all over his son like that?

0:15:260:15:29

You needed to know the truth.

0:15:300:15:32

You couldn't wait to tell me.

0:15:320:15:34

He's using you.

0:15:350:15:37

You think Luke's a bad 'un.

0:15:410:15:44

Cos of what...

0:15:440:15:45

Cos of what his dad did, right?

0:15:460:15:48

But what if he ain't?

0:15:490:15:52

See, the Luke I know, he's...

0:15:520:15:54

smart, funny.

0:15:540:15:57

I've got to judge him on who he is, right? Cos, otherwise...

0:15:570:16:02

What if people judge you on YOUR dad?

0:16:050:16:08

Eh? What if Luke judged me on what you've done?

0:16:080:16:11

He knows.

0:16:140:16:16

So you keep saying.

0:16:160:16:17

Why should I believe you, Dad?

0:16:190:16:20

See, no-one's exactly been honest with me lately, have they?

0:16:220:16:26

Shaki! It's half past!

0:16:360:16:39

What's going on? What's the big emergency?

0:16:390:16:41

-I need you to taste something.

-Ah.

0:16:410:16:44

My special recipe, seeing as Hope's coming home today.

0:16:440:16:48

Mum...

0:16:480:16:50

-No...

-Well, you know, I've got all this time,

0:16:500:16:53

and Martin and Stacey don't want to be bothered cooking, do they?

0:16:530:16:55

So you think all this is going to bring Stacey round, mmm?

0:16:550:16:58

It's called a gesture, Kushy.

0:16:580:17:01

How else am I supposed to say sorry?

0:17:010:17:04

And when she throws it all back in your face...?

0:17:040:17:06

Shaki, will you please get a move on?

0:17:080:17:12

"I work in retail management for a large organisation,

0:17:120:17:16

"and have over 50 subordinates answerable to me..."

0:17:160:17:19

KIM LAUGHS

0:17:190:17:21

"Subordinates"? You know he's talking about you. It's a market!

0:17:210:17:25

Oh, hey, Muscleman007, what's your secret?

0:17:250:17:29

KIM LAUGHS

0:17:290:17:30

Have you been stalking me?

0:17:300:17:31

How are you getting hits with this?

0:17:310:17:34

Think I should change it?

0:17:340:17:36

No, not if you are as successful as you say you are...

0:17:360:17:39

Mr Lover Lover.

0:17:390:17:41

KIM LAUGHS

0:17:410:17:43

Ah, I knew it! Have you even got one nudge?

0:17:430:17:47

It's early days.

0:17:480:17:49

Watch him.

0:17:490:17:51

"Early days"!

0:17:510:17:53

-LINDA:

-Kim, you fancy yourself as a bit of a cook, don't you?

0:17:530:17:56

Well, I have been known to rustle up some cordon bleu in my time.

0:17:560:18:01

-Gordon who?

-Yeah, Kim's a dab hand.

0:18:010:18:03

Pierce film, high power, two minutes.

0:18:030:18:05

The microwave is a beautiful thing.

0:18:050:18:07

How do you feel about hosting a safari supper?

0:18:070:18:10

PHONE RINGS

0:18:230:18:26

I was thinking that, maybe with your Persian connection,

0:18:380:18:40

you might be able to come up with something a bit exotic.

0:18:400:18:43

And when am I supposed to do this?

0:18:430:18:45

We were thinking one night this week.

0:18:450:18:48

Well, it's a bit short notice, innit?

0:18:480:18:49

I know, I know, but the problem is that time is against us.

0:18:490:18:52

How many people are we talking?

0:18:580:19:00

Well, we haven't actually sold any tickets yet,

0:19:000:19:02

but the more the merrier.

0:19:020:19:03

-Well, this place isn't exactly a mansion.

-It's perfect!

0:19:030:19:07

-I'll think of something.

-You will?

-Yeah.

-Oh, fantastic!

0:19:070:19:10

Now, I'm really sorry, Linda, but there's something I need to do.

0:19:100:19:13

Yes, yes, of course. Thank you so much, Carmel.

0:19:130:19:15

-That's all right.

-I really, really appreciate it!

0:19:150:19:17

-All right, bye, then.

-Bye!

0:19:170:19:19

Say hello to your new home, sweetheart!

0:19:210:19:24

Oh, it's gorgeous!

0:19:270:19:29

Yeah? Lily sort of did most of it, to be fair,

0:19:290:19:33

but I know you didn't want a fuss, so...

0:19:330:19:34

-Oh, I love it!

-Look at that, look.

-Oh!

0:19:340:19:38

Where's Arthur?

0:19:380:19:40

I just left him with Whitney till after lunch, you know,

0:19:400:19:43

-just to give us a bit of time.

-Yeah.

0:19:430:19:45

Oh, we didn't get many cards.

0:19:460:19:48

Nah, I think it's just people were just...scared, you know?

0:19:490:19:52

Just...in case.

0:19:520:19:53

-Yeah. But who needs cards, anyway?

-Yeah.

0:19:550:19:57

From now on, it's just me, you, and the kids that count.

0:19:570:20:00

That's right.

0:20:000:20:01

DOORBELL RINGS

0:20:010:20:03

-Oh, whoever that is, tell them to come back later.

-Yeah.

0:20:030:20:06

Come back later, go away.

0:20:060:20:08

-You all right?

-How's Hope?

0:20:100:20:12

Great, yeah. Thing is, Carmel, we've only just got back...

0:20:120:20:15

Oh, no, no, no, yeah, course. Erm... I'm not stopping.

0:20:150:20:18

I just... I wanted to give you this.

0:20:190:20:21

Last thing you want to be doing is cooking today,

0:20:210:20:24

and Stacey needs to keep her strength up.

0:20:240:20:26

It's a lasagne.

0:20:270:20:28

Yeah, of course.

0:20:280:20:29

40 minutes at 140, and... Bob's your uncle.

0:20:290:20:33

Right, thanks.

0:20:330:20:35

Erm, maybe I could... pop back later some time,

0:20:350:20:39

and say hello to mummy and baby?

0:20:390:20:41

Yeah, er...

0:20:410:20:43

Maybe.

0:20:430:20:45

OK. Yeah.

0:20:460:20:48

-All right, thanks.

-Thanks.

0:20:480:20:50

She's making the effort.

0:21:010:21:02

-Muscleman!

-I know. 007!

0:21:050:21:07

Muscleman! Muscleman! Look, look at his face!

0:21:070:21:09

Smouldering... There he is! Hello, Muscleman 007!

0:21:090:21:12

-All right, all right, guys. Calm down.

-Shaken, not stirred!

0:21:120:21:15

Donna, I thought you were supposed to be helping me.

0:21:150:21:17

-You have GOT to change that name.

-To what?

0:21:170:21:20

-Your porn star name.

-Oh, yeah!

-Yeah!

0:21:200:21:23

OK, so, take the name of your favourite pet...

0:21:230:21:25

Wellard.

0:21:270:21:28

-Oh!

-Wellard? OK, OK, move on, move on.

0:21:280:21:32

All right, the name of your favourite superhero?

0:21:320:21:35

Hong Kong Phooey.

0:21:360:21:38

Yeah, if you're happy with

0:21:380:21:40

the vaguely racist overtones of that, then that's fine.

0:21:400:21:43

OK, so let me set this up, OK?

0:21:430:21:45

I bet you 50 quid that I will get you more nudges in one day

0:21:450:21:49

than you will get in one month.

0:21:490:21:51

Ooh!

0:21:510:21:53

20.

0:21:530:21:55

OK, deal.

0:21:550:21:56

-Deal.

-Yes!

0:21:560:21:59

OK, Muscleman!

0:21:590:22:00

I'm serving up, Stace!

0:22:030:22:04

Martin, I can't get this new phone to connect to the Wi-Fi.

0:22:080:22:11

What am I doing wrong?

0:22:110:22:13

Don't know, I'll have a look at it after lunch.

0:22:130:22:15

I don't know about you, but I'm starving.

0:22:150:22:17

What are we having?

0:22:170:22:18

Ooh...

0:22:200:22:21

Look, just close your eyes, and pretend I made it, yeah?

0:22:270:22:30

Unless you actually want me to make you something.

0:22:300:22:32

Now, come on, sit yourself down, and do as you're told.

0:22:330:22:36

Ho-ho!

0:22:390:22:41

Thought you were meant to be at drama club.

0:22:520:22:54

Yeah, I was. It was cancelled.

0:22:540:22:55

-Yeah?

-Yeah, Mr Pryce was a no-show today.

0:22:550:22:58

Really? I heard his flat was back up for rent again.

0:22:580:23:02

What? He's moved out?

0:23:020:23:04

Well, maybe him and Sonia have got plans.

0:23:040:23:05

-DOOR OPENS, CLOSES

-Are you sure?

0:23:050:23:08

-Bag, and feet!

-I was just going to...

0:23:080:23:10

-Phil...

-I'll be upstairs.

0:23:100:23:13

Look, don't take it out on her.

0:23:130:23:14

Look, do you think it might help if I went and had a word with Ben?

0:23:180:23:21

He'll do the right thing. You know he will.

0:23:220:23:25

MARTIN CHUCKLES

0:23:320:23:34

Go on, admit it.

0:23:340:23:35

Admit what?

0:23:350:23:37

That was gorgeous.

0:23:370:23:38

So?

0:23:400:23:41

So, don't you think you've punished her enough?

0:23:420:23:45

I mean, yeah, she probably should've come and spoke to us before

0:23:450:23:48

going to the social, but she's only worried about Arthur, weren't she?

0:23:480:23:51

Right...

0:23:530:23:54

That, I think, has done it.

0:23:540:23:58

-Ah, thanks.

-Mmm.

0:23:580:24:00

Who should I send my first message to?

0:24:000:24:03

Well...

0:24:030:24:05

What?

0:24:060:24:08

Now's as good a time as any, innit?

0:24:080:24:09

So, who's coming to this dinner, then?

0:24:130:24:16

I don't even know.

0:24:180:24:20

Linda caught me on the hop, and I said yes

0:24:200:24:22

before I realised what I was actually letting myself in for.

0:24:220:24:26

I could do without this.

0:24:270:24:28

Oh, Mum.

0:24:290:24:31

MESSAGE TONE

0:24:310:24:33

-Unknown number.

-Mmm?

0:24:380:24:40

"Thank you for the lasagne. It was delicious.

0:24:440:24:47

"Come and meet Hope. Arthur will be here in a bit.

0:24:480:24:53

"He'd love to see you. Stacey."

0:24:530:24:57

Oh!

0:24:590:25:00

Never been so in demand.

0:25:130:25:15

You OK?

0:25:190:25:20

Arthur, you going to say hello to your little sister?

0:25:250:25:28

Yeah?

0:25:280:25:30

Look, she is so sweet!

0:25:300:25:32

She is, isn't she?

0:25:340:25:35

She feeding all right?

0:25:350:25:37

Yeah, like a suction pump.

0:25:370:25:40

Are you a little gannet? Yes!

0:25:400:25:43

Oh, they're so precious, aren't they?

0:25:440:25:46

Tell me about it.

0:25:460:25:47

I can't tell you how much this means to me, Stace.

0:25:490:25:52

Well, let's not go over it all again, yeah?

0:25:520:25:55

Yeah.

0:25:550:25:56

Bex, will you hurry up and get over here?

0:26:000:26:03

Come and see your sister.

0:26:030:26:04

Thought I'd start having a clean-up.

0:26:120:26:13

Dot would have a fit if she saw the state of it in here.

0:26:130:26:16

He wasn't in school today.

0:26:160:26:18

No, I know.

0:26:200:26:22

He called me.

0:26:220:26:25

When? What did he say?

0:26:250:26:27

Nothing much. Just that he's left, and he won't be coming back.

0:26:290:26:33

Right.

0:26:370:26:38

Right, I see.

0:26:390:26:40

You're going to miss him, aren't you?

0:26:450:26:47

Not really.

0:26:490:26:51

Are you?

0:26:560:26:57

Me? Nah.

0:26:570:26:59

Tough as old boots, me.

0:27:010:27:03

Come here.

0:27:060:27:08

I know, love.

0:27:120:27:13

You knew about it?!

0:27:160:27:18

My dad went to prison. Of course I knew.

0:27:230:27:26

When I met you, I had no idea you were Kathy's son.

0:27:260:27:28

-No?

-I swear.

0:27:280:27:30

On my mother's grave.

0:27:310:27:33

Besides...

0:27:350:27:37

what our parents got up to is nothing to do with us.

0:27:370:27:39

They weren't "getting up to" anything.

0:27:410:27:44

He raped her!

0:27:450:27:47

Is...

0:27:500:27:52

Is any of this real?

0:27:520:27:53

-Is this just a way of getting back at my mum?

-No.

0:27:540:27:57

-We can get past this.

-How?

0:27:580:28:01

Last night, when I found out,

0:28:010:28:03

I wanted to kill your dad with my bare hands.

0:28:030:28:06

If he was stood in front of me now, Luke...

0:28:060:28:08

He could be.

0:28:080:28:09

If you like.

0:28:110:28:12

He wants to meet you.

0:28:140:28:15
