-DAISY CRIES

-No, we don't hit.

DAISY SCREAMS

0:00:340:00:36

KNOCKING AT FRONT DOOR

0:00:360:00:39

There, there. There, baby. I'm not going away.

0:00:390:00:43

I love you. We all love you.

0:00:450:00:47

-SCREAMING CONTINUES

-There, there.

0:00:480:00:50

Sorry to disturb you.

0:00:510:00:53

I hope you don't think I'm some interfering old busybody, but...

0:00:530:00:56

-is it a bad time?

-It's all right...

0:00:560:00:59

Just say what you've come to say.

0:00:590:01:01

Well, it was just... It's just the...

0:01:010:01:03

Is that going to stay like that?

0:01:050:01:07

When I was living here, Masood wouldn't let me change anything.

0:01:070:01:10

-It was just something to amuse the child.

-Oh, I see.

0:01:100:01:12

She's going to her new family today.

0:01:120:01:15

There, there, it's all right.

0:01:150:01:17

-I'll take care of it once she's gone.

-Oh, right. Thank you.

0:01:180:01:23

-We all love you.

-Bet you'll appreciate the peace and quiet, though, eh?

-I love you.

0:01:230:01:26

-Arshad loves you.

-I'll... I'll run along, leave you to it.

0:01:260:01:31

No, we don't spit.

0:01:340:01:36

No, no, Daisy! No spitting!

0:01:370:01:42

Current account, £1,743.17.

0:01:420:01:45

-Might last us a month if we're lucky.

-Meaning?

0:01:450:01:48

Meaning, I'm going to have to get myself some work.

0:01:480:01:51

And in between doing that, see about finding you a new school.

0:01:510:01:54

-Yeah, well, I'm 16 soon.

-Not till November you're not.

0:01:540:01:57

You're not going to make my mistake

0:01:570:01:58

and leave school with no qualifications.

0:01:580:02:00

-HE SIGHS

-It's not up for debate, Hunter.

0:02:000:02:03

Right, I'm going to get some business cards printed,

0:02:050:02:08

and while I'm gone, this place has not been touched since we arrived.

0:02:080:02:13

I want it spotless by the time I get back.

0:02:130:02:17

HE KNOCKS ON FRONT DOOR

0:02:260:02:28

Can I come in?

0:02:300:02:31

-Easy!

-Right, one pair of jeans,

0:02:380:02:42

cheap coat,

0:02:420:02:44

five-pack of underpants,

0:02:440:02:47

ditto socks, and T-shirt.

0:02:470:02:49

-You owe me 44 quid.

-Thanks.

0:02:490:02:52

-Oh, and I bumped into Honey outside.

-What did she say?

0:02:520:02:54

Not a lot, she just asked me to pass this on.

0:02:540:02:58

Listen, Billy, what I said yesterday.

0:02:580:03:00

-Last night was a one-off, OK?

-What happened to family?

-DOORBELL

0:03:000:03:04

Well, I'd imagine that Honey's asking herself the very same question.

0:03:040:03:07

FRONT DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES

0:03:090:03:13

SHE SIGHS

0:03:230:03:25

-So where's, where's the little man?

-I told you last night.

0:03:250:03:28

-They stayed at Kush's.

-Oh, yeah.

0:03:280:03:31

How was five-a-sides? Did you win?

0:03:310:03:34

-No, I didn't go.

-Why?

0:03:340:03:36

Why do you think? YOU didn't go out, then?

0:03:360:03:39

Well, no, it's a bit hard with a four-month-old.

0:03:410:03:43

All right. Let's just drop it, shall we?

0:03:430:03:47

-How's Max coping?

-What, you mean the "ginger ferret"?

0:03:490:03:53

-All right...

-The ginger ferret that's just lost his daughter?

0:03:530:03:55

Yeah, you've made your point.

0:03:550:03:57

Is that the only reason you've come round here,

0:03:570:04:00

cos you're worried about Max?

0:04:000:04:01

No, I just thought we could come to, like, a regular arrangement

0:04:010:04:04

-with the kids.

-Go on.

0:04:040:04:07

Well, you have them in the week and I'll have

0:04:080:04:10

them Friday night to Monday morning.

0:04:100:04:12

-What, so I do all the donkey work while you have all the fun?

-No!

0:04:120:04:15

What am I supposed to do with myself all weekend?

0:04:150:04:17

Well, I thought you'd be pleased. You get Friday and Saturday night to do what you want.

0:04:170:04:21

-What's that supposed to mean?

-I am thinking of you!

0:04:210:04:23

-No, you ain't, you're doing that!

-Can't we even have a proper conversation any more?

0:04:230:04:27

-Oh, I guess that's my fault an' all?

-Do you know what, forget it!

0:04:270:04:29

-Am I having the kids tonight or not?

-I'll see.

0:04:290:04:32

No, that's not good enough, Stace. I need a yes or a no, now!

0:04:320:04:35

I'll text you.

0:04:350:04:37

-"I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down!"

-SHE LAUGHS

0:04:420:04:45

-How are we doing?

-We're fine now, aren't we, darling?

0:04:470:04:52

There've been a few tears, but it's over now.

0:04:520:04:54

We've had a long chat, haven't we?

0:04:540:04:57

And I've been explaining to her that it's not as

0:04:570:04:59

-though she's never going to see us again.

-No!

0:04:590:05:02

There'll be birthdays and visits and all sorts.

0:05:020:05:06

Of course there will be.

0:05:060:05:08

-How could you think that we'd never see you again?

-HE SCOFFS

0:05:080:05:11

We love you, darling, forever!

0:05:110:05:14

Now we've got to think about packing your clothes, your shoes, your toys.

0:05:140:05:19

You're going to help, aren't you?

0:05:190:05:22

So you run along upstairs and start sorting,

0:05:220:05:25

and I'll be with you in two ticks.

0:05:250:05:27

HE SIGHS

0:05:340:05:37

How are you?

0:05:370:05:38

SHE SOBS

0:05:440:05:46

Come here, meri jaan.

0:05:510:05:53

We'll be strong.

0:05:570:05:59

Like we've been strong before.

0:06:000:06:02

-We will be strong again.

-Yes.

0:06:040:06:06

-What was you thinking?

-I wasn't thinking.

0:06:090:06:12

That's the whole point.

0:06:120:06:14

And you knew about this?

0:06:140:06:16

Well, I'm not saying that I approved, but I was trying to help her out.

0:06:160:06:20

-You don't even like geezers.

-So I'm flexible...

0:06:200:06:23

Even if you did, of all the geezers to choose.

0:06:230:06:26

-Billy Mitchell?!

-I didn't "choose" him! It just happened.

0:06:260:06:28

What are you going to say to them kids who've lost their dad?

0:06:280:06:31

-Oh, don't!

-I don't think she's gone to the police.

0:06:310:06:33

We'd have heard something by now.

0:06:330:06:35

Right, here's what you're going to do. You're going to go to the

0:06:360:06:40

Minute Mart, you're going to go and see Honey.

0:06:400:06:42

You're going to get on your knees and you're going to beg.

0:06:420:06:45

Mick's right, Tina.

0:06:450:06:48

You're going to tell her it was your fault, that he didn't want to,

0:06:480:06:51

-but you pushed him into it.

-But that's not true!

0:06:510:06:54

Do you think those kids are going to care whether you did or you

0:06:540:06:57

didn't? They want their dad back.

0:06:570:06:58

You've got to take responsibility, Teen.

0:07:000:07:02

They want seven grand by this time next week or they're taking us

0:07:040:07:07

to court.

0:07:070:07:08

So can you transfer some money into my account and I'll sort it?

0:07:080:07:13

I'm doing you a favour here, Phil - it's your club, too!

0:07:130:07:16

Yeah, well, if I had the money, I'd do it!

0:07:170:07:20

Fine! Fine, deal with it yourself!

0:07:200:07:23

God, he drives me mad sometimes.

0:07:250:07:27

Know what you should do?

0:07:270:07:29

-Enlighten me, Billy.

-Reopen it.

0:07:290:07:32

The R&R? At my age, with an 11-year-old?

0:07:320:07:35

I'd be dead within the week.

0:07:350:07:37

Not if you had someone to manage it for you.

0:07:370:07:40

-You are joking.

-No, I'm not.

0:07:400:07:43

-I've run a business the last three years.

-From which you've just been fired.

0:07:430:07:46

-Yes, but...

-..for gross irresponsibility.

0:07:460:07:48

I don't think so, Billy.

0:07:480:07:51

Go and work on your marriage.

0:07:510:07:53

So I'll find her at home, will I? Cheers.

0:07:570:08:00

Well, if it isn't the home-wrecker.

0:08:020:08:05

I hope you're feeling really pleased with yourself.

0:08:060:08:09

Viktoria's already here.

0:08:110:08:14

She's helping Her Ladyship get ready.

0:08:140:08:16

They won't be a moment. Come through.

0:08:160:08:18

-How is she?

-Her Royal Gorgeousness.

0:08:200:08:23

Ah, not so gorgeous this morning.

0:08:230:08:27

-We had a bit of a wobble.

-Oh, yes?

0:08:270:08:30

Took me half an hour to calm her down.

0:08:300:08:33

We had a taste of that the other night.

0:08:330:08:35

-What was it about?

-So much disruption in her young life.

0:08:350:08:39

I mean, three placements before she even came to us,

0:08:390:08:42

and now they're moving her on again.

0:08:420:08:44

-Of course she's going to be upset.

-We understand.

-I hope you do.

0:08:440:08:48

We had a long talk last night.

0:08:490:08:50

We've done nothing but talk.

0:08:520:08:54

We're determined to give her the best life we possibly can.

0:08:550:08:58

We have so much love to give her.

0:08:580:09:00

You're going to need it.

0:09:000:09:02

I mean, when she breaks her toys, you'll still love her.

0:09:020:09:04

-When she spits at you...

-Like she spat at me this morning...

0:09:040:09:07

..you'll still love her.

0:09:070:09:09

When she bangs her head against the wall and screams,

0:09:090:09:11

-you'll still love her.

-We get it.

-Do you?

0:09:110:09:14

When she lies, when she steals, when she calls you names,

0:09:140:09:17

-you'll still love her.

-We're under no illusions.

0:09:170:09:20

-The hardest thing you've ever done.

-We appreciate that. We do.

0:09:200:09:23

And the most rewarding.

0:09:230:09:25

Mariam, are you doing your usual?

0:09:270:09:29

-Here she is!

-Wow, look at you! LAUGHTER

0:09:300:09:35

-Hello, Daisy?

-Would Sasha like to say hello?

0:09:350:09:39

-LAUGHTER

-I wonder if Sasha and Daisy

0:09:390:09:45

would like a piece of cake.

0:09:450:09:47

-Piece of cake, yeah?

-Yes, Mariam's bringing it through.

0:09:470:09:51

SHE SOBS

0:09:560:09:58

-So are you having the kids tonight or not?

-"She'll see."

0:10:080:10:10

-What does that mean?

-Exactly.

0:10:100:10:13

Did you get back in touch with that lawyer? Good.

0:10:150:10:18

Well, she carries on like this, I'm going to have to.

0:10:180:10:20

But only as a last resort, yeah?

0:10:200:10:22

I've only got so much patience, 'Chelle. I ain't a saint.

0:10:220:10:25

She mucks me about just one more time...

0:10:250:10:27

What?

0:10:270:10:29

-Say, "Gorgonzola".

-Gorgonzola!

-LAUGHTER

0:10:310:10:36

Now, this will be printed up...

0:10:360:10:38

Along with all the children we've taken care of,

0:10:380:10:40

so that we never forget them.

0:10:400:10:42

-Well, as if we're ever likely to forget.

-LAUGHTER

0:10:420:10:45

-This is for you to keep.

-Oh, wow.

0:10:450:10:47

-Look, Ash...

-Fantastic.

0:10:500:10:52

Oh, before you get too involved in that, we have a little

0:10:550:10:59

present for Daisy.

0:10:590:11:00

Most important, so close your eyes.

0:11:000:11:03

Here it is.

0:11:050:11:07

Open your eyes.

0:11:070:11:09

Now, this may look like an ordinary stone, but it's actually a...

0:11:110:11:16

This is a magic stone.

0:11:160:11:18

Just like the one over there.

0:11:200:11:23

You see, every evening, Arshad and I put our hands

0:11:230:11:26

on that stone and pour all our love into it,

0:11:260:11:29

so that it goes out to all the children we've taken care of.

0:11:290:11:33

It's beautiful. What do we say, Daisy?

0:11:330:11:36

-Thank you.

-We will keep that very safe.

0:11:360:11:40

-Can you feel the magic, Daisy?

-Right! Who's for cake?

0:11:400:11:45

-Me, me, me, me!

-Yeah!

-LAUGHTER

0:11:450:11:48

So I said to myself,

0:11:480:11:50

"There's no point sitting around feeling sorry for myself.

0:11:500:11:52

"Get on with something useful."

0:11:520:11:54

Yeah? So anything related to a certain ex-undertaker goes in there.

0:11:540:11:58

Black Lace, Greatest Hits. I mean, obviously his.

0:12:000:12:03

Can I offer you a cup of something?

0:12:060:12:08

-Honey...

-What?

0:12:080:12:10

-I'm worried about you.

-Why? Why?

0:12:110:12:15

I mean, this is that fresh start everyone always talks about.

0:12:150:12:18

I'm absolutely fine.

0:12:180:12:20

-Maybe I will have that cup of tea.

-Sure. Yeah.

0:12:200:12:23

Actually, Carmel, you don't know anything about CD players, do you? Cos Billy said he'd fix this one,

0:12:230:12:27

and obviously he's left it like this, and I can't bear not listening to music.

0:12:270:12:31

Now, let me make you that cup of tea.

0:12:310:12:33

-Oh, I don't know what I've done with the kettle. There it is.

-SHE CLEARS HER THROAT

0:12:330:12:37

So, you're a consultant?

0:12:370:12:39

I'm looking for new clients all over East London.

0:12:390:12:41

20 years' experience in all aspects of the licensing trade.

0:12:410:12:45

I can really help you grow your business.

0:12:450:12:47

Mel? Not, um...

0:12:470:12:51

not the Mel that was with, what's the name, um...Steve?

0:12:510:12:57

Maybe.

0:12:570:12:59

Married to Ian Beale an' all, weren't you?

0:12:590:13:01

Yeah, for about 20 minutes, yeah.

0:13:010:13:03

Why? Who've you been talking to?

0:13:030:13:04

No, you stand behind this bar for long enough,

0:13:040:13:07

-you get to hear all the stories.

-Not ALL, I hope.

0:13:070:13:09

I'll be straight with you - we've had managing consultants coming

0:13:120:13:14

out of our earholes this past year, so I'm not that keen.

0:13:140:13:18

-Not all management consultants are the same.

-This is true.

0:13:180:13:22

I tell you what I'll do, I'll keep hold of this.

0:13:220:13:25

-I'll have a little think up and I'll get back to you.

-Thank you.

0:13:250:13:27

-And you are?

-Mick. Mick Carter.

0:13:270:13:30

It's nice to meet you, Mick. No doubt I'll see you around,

0:13:300:13:33

-as they say.

-Pleasure.

0:13:330:13:35

-What?

-You know.

-No, I don't know.

0:13:410:13:43

Just saying.

0:13:430:13:44

SHE LAUGHS

0:13:440:13:46

-You all right, Mel?

-Hi.

0:13:480:13:50

Have a business card.

0:13:500:13:52

Ooh, Get you.

0:13:520:13:54

Seriously, if you do know anyone who's in the trade who might

0:13:540:13:56

-need my expertise...

-Well, funny you should say that.

0:13:560:13:59

-I was just about to call you, actually.

-Oh, yeah?

0:13:590:14:02

Yeah. Follow me.

0:14:020:14:04

So, if I was to completely redecorate in here,

0:14:050:14:08

what colour would you choose?

0:14:080:14:11

I mean, I'm thinking something bright, something bold,

0:14:110:14:14

something different.

0:14:140:14:15

-I mean, what do you think, Carmel?

-Honey?

-What?

0:14:150:14:17

-Billy's lost his job.

-So?

0:14:190:14:21

So the flat comes with the job.

0:14:220:14:25

Why are you trying to spoil things for me?

0:14:280:14:30

I'm thinking yellow, you know?

0:14:320:14:34

Yeah, something, something that says sunshine.

0:14:340:14:37

Yeah, like a brand-new day.

0:14:370:14:39

-Sounds great.

-Perfect, yeah.

0:14:390:14:42

Now, I've...I've done my best with this.

0:14:420:14:45

Why don't you plug it in and see if it works?

0:14:450:14:47

-Oh, thank you.

Ignore it.

0:14:510:14:53

Let me.

0:14:570:14:59

Hello?

0:15:000:15:02

-'Who's that?'

-It's Carmel.

0:15:020:15:05

She doesn't want to speak to you, Billy.

0:15:050:15:08

-'I just want five minutes.'

-She says no.

0:15:080:15:11

'Please, I'm begging.'

0:15:110:15:12

Wait there, I'll come down.

0:15:140:15:16

I'll get rid of him.

0:15:170:15:19

-I'm going to have to go.

-Yeah, sure.

0:15:190:15:21

-I'm meant to be at work.

-Of course. Thank you.

0:15:210:15:24

You've been lovely.

0:15:240:15:25

Stay strong, Honey.

0:15:270:15:28

It's just been sitting here, doing nothing since Christmas before last.

0:15:340:15:37

Phil was supposed to be selling it, only of course he hasn't.

0:15:370:15:40

And today I learn there's a stack of business rates he's been

0:15:400:15:44

-shoving in a drawer somewhere.

-Why the name change?

0:15:440:15:48

It's a long story.

0:15:480:15:50

Thing is, I took a look at the old accounts this morning.

0:15:500:15:53

Now, two years ago, this place was clearing well over five grand

0:15:540:15:56

a week, and that was before the hipsters turned up.

0:15:560:16:00

-So, what? You're going to reopen it?

-No. You are.

0:16:000:16:03

-Absolutely not.

-You owe me. And Phil.

0:16:040:16:08

Well, I thought you were looking for work.

0:16:100:16:12

I just want to talk to her. Please!

0:16:140:16:16

Well, she doesn't want to talk to you! Why would she?

0:16:160:16:19

You have no-one to blame but yourself, Billy.

0:16:190:16:21

Now leave her alone!

0:16:210:16:24

I can almost smell his aftershave.

0:16:300:16:33

Well, it's your decision. I ain't going to beg you.

0:16:330:16:35

I just thought, seeing as you're familiar with the place...

0:16:350:16:38

-What did Phil say?

-Leave Phil to me.

0:16:380:16:41

Course, it'll take a lot of work to get it back into shape,

0:16:440:16:47

and we'll probably need to take out a loan,

0:16:470:16:50

but I reckon we could have it up and running in a month,

0:16:500:16:52

if you're prepared to put the work in.

0:16:520:16:55

What? You're not telling me you believe in ghosts!

0:16:550:16:58

I'm sorry, Sharon, but it feels like a bit of a backward step.

0:16:580:17:03

I'm surprised at you, Mel.

0:17:030:17:06

Letting a man dictate your life to you from beyond the grave.

0:17:060:17:09

Thought you had more balls than that.

0:17:090:17:11

Never mind.

0:17:110:17:13

You coming or not?

0:17:140:17:17

Mariam hates goodbyes.

0:17:250:17:27

-Well, she always cries.

-Of course.

0:17:270:17:30

It can upset the children.

0:17:300:17:32

Now, you be a good girl for Ashley and Dan, won't you?

0:17:340:17:38

And I'll see you very soon, hmm?

HE CHUCKLES

0:17:410:17:44

Right, well, do I get a cuddle? Aah.

0:17:440:17:47

Right, then.

0:17:550:17:57

Oh, sit in the back.

0:17:590:18:01

Yes, of course.

0:18:020:18:04

-Thank you so much.

-Huh?

-HE LAUGHS

0:18:050:18:09

Feel free to use the magic stone yourself.

0:18:110:18:14

You'll almost certainly find you need it.

0:18:140:18:16

Of course.

0:18:160:18:18

And thank you again.

0:18:180:18:20

-So...

-Indeed.

0:18:240:18:28

How are you feeling?

0:18:440:18:45

-I work with a lot of foster carers. Do you know how good you are?

-THEY LAUGH

0:18:490:18:53

And you too, of course.

0:18:550:18:57

Till next time.

0:18:570:18:59

If there is a next time.

I love you, babe. I love you so much.

-Martin! Martin, you've got to come!

-Well give us a sec, 'Chelle.

-No, now, it's Stacey!

0:20:310:20:34

-Why? What's going on?

-She's taking the kids.

0:20:340:20:36

Shrimpy, watch my stall!

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

0:20:380:20:40

What the hell are you doing?!

0:20:400:20:42

-I'm taking the kids to Brighton.

-Again?!

-Yes, again.

0:20:420:20:46

-Well, I'm having them tonight.

-Well, I did text you.

0:20:460:20:48

-I didn't get a text.

-Ain't my fault.

-You can't do this, Stace!

0:20:480:20:52

Not without consulting me! And where's Lily anyway?

0:20:520:20:54

-We're picking her up from school on the way.

-No, you ain't going anywhere, mate, all right?

0:20:540:20:57

You're staying here. 'Chelle, sort him out with a fiver or something?

0:20:570:21:00

No. Don't listen to him. First stop, Walford Primary, second stop London Bridge, please.

0:21:000:21:03

Stace, I'm not going to let you do this.

0:21:030:21:05

Oh, Martin! What are you going to do? What, you're going to hit me?

0:21:050:21:08

Well, go on, then - in front of all these people. Go on.

0:21:080:21:10

I tell you what, let's call the lawyers, shall we?

0:21:100:21:13

-Let's actually get them involved, see what they say!

-Oi! Stop this, now!

-Who are you?

0:21:130:21:16

Do you have the first idea what you're doing to those children?

0:21:160:21:19

Hey, look, we're sorting this out, mate, all right? So back off.

0:21:190:21:22

No, I will not back off.

0:21:220:21:24

-Not when there are children involved.

-They're just babies.

-Just babies?!

0:21:240:21:28

I've spent my whole life fixing the damage done by the likes of you.

0:21:280:21:33

The shouting, the threats,

0:21:330:21:35

the violence. You really think that isn't going in?

0:21:350:21:38

OK, meri jaan, you've made your point, now calm down.

0:21:380:21:41

No, I will not calm down! Not when there's child abuse!

0:21:410:21:45

-No, I'm not.

-Oh, get real!

-Their brains are like sponges.

0:21:450:21:49

They absorb everything.

0:21:490:21:51

You want them to grow up just like you?

0:21:510:21:53

You should be ashamed of yourselves!

0:21:530:21:55

-Maybe we should all take five minutes?

-OK Arshad, let's go home.

0:21:550:21:58

Not until I know those children are safe.

0:21:580:22:02

You need to take a long, hard look at yourselves, the both of you.

0:22:020:22:06

Children need to be protected, to be loved.

0:22:060:22:09

That's your job!

0:22:090:22:12

That's your most important job!

0:22:120:22:15

They can't look after themselves, can they? They're not tough like you. They're fragile souls.

0:22:150:22:20

Yeah, you're right. I'm sorry. Sorry.

0:22:200:22:25

-Fine. You have them.

-And where are you going?

0:22:250:22:27

Someone's got to pick Lily up from school.

0:22:270:22:29

Hey!

0:22:340:22:35

Daddy's here now, all right?

0:22:350:22:38

Look, I don't need this, Hunter.

0:22:380:22:40

-What happened to facing up to the past?

-Will you pack it in?

0:22:400:22:42

You were going on this morning about how poor we are.

0:22:420:22:44

We... I said, will you stop?!

0:22:440:22:46

"Well, thanks for tidying the house, Hunter. You've done a great job.

0:22:540:22:59

-"Appreciate it."

-What? Oh, yeah.

0:22:590:23:03

So you have.

0:23:030:23:05

Thank you.

0:23:050:23:07

Look, if staying here's going to do this to you, there's still always

0:23:080:23:13

Portugal.

0:23:130:23:15

Seriously.

0:23:160:23:18

I wouldn't mind.

0:23:180:23:19

If that's what you want.

You know what? Sharon's right.

0:23:270:23:31

About what?

0:23:310:23:33

I'm not going to let that man run my life from beyond the grave.

0:23:330:23:36

-Mum?

-No, I've had it with him.

0:23:370:23:41

He's not going to hurt me any more.

0:23:410:23:43

Hello, Sharon, it's me.

0:23:460:23:48

I will take you up on your offer after all.

0:23:480:23:51

Was I wrong, meri jaan, to make that scene?

0:23:570:24:00

You know, sometimes I...

0:24:030:24:06

I just want to go away and live somewhere in a cave and forget all

0:24:060:24:11

about this wicked world.

I wasn't prepared to argue, not after this afternoon.

-Oh, yeah?

-Yeah.

0:25:070:25:09

Well, apparently Stacey's not picking her phone up

0:25:090:25:11

-and she's worried, right? Well, that's no big deal cos that's just typical Jean.

-So, what, then?

0:25:110:25:16

-So I decided to tell her why Stacey weren't going down to Brighton tonight and why.

-And?

0:25:160:25:19

She didn't have a clue what I was talking about.
