Such a pretty face.

0:00:500:00:52

Thank you for doing this.

0:00:520:00:53

I mean, we could have done it a bit later, but once he's up...

0:00:530:00:56

that's it. He's very full-on.

0:00:560:00:58

Well, couldn't Josh look after him?

0:00:590:01:01

Yeah. Yeah, course he could. It's just...

0:01:010:01:04

They love hanging out together.

0:01:040:01:05

But we've got...

0:01:050:01:07

got to get all the packing done, get it all in the car and...

0:01:070:01:11

He's my son.

0:01:110:01:13

A lot of changes in his little life.

0:01:130:01:15

Yeah...

0:01:150:01:17

You sure Scotland's the right move?

0:01:170:01:20

Everybody else is gone, Whit.

0:01:210:01:23

I'm still here.

0:01:230:01:25

I know.

0:01:250:01:28

I just...

0:01:280:01:29

I want...

0:01:290:01:31

I want my dad to stay away and today to be over...

0:01:310:01:34

There'll always be a part of me that belongs in Walford, but...

0:01:380:01:40

..right now, I really,

0:01:420:01:43

really badly, I need to move on.

0:01:430:01:45

BABY CRIES, DOOR SLAMS

0:01:450:01:47

-Oh, that's him now.

-It's all right, mate. I'm back.

0:01:470:01:50

Hey. Listen, babes, you take that bath.

0:01:500:01:52

Relax. Do what you need to do.

0:01:520:01:54

I'm going to take him down the playground,

0:01:540:01:56

tire him out for 20 minutes before the funeral, yeah?

0:01:560:01:58

Come here.

0:01:580:02:00

Right, look what I've got for you, mate.

0:02:000:02:03

I do love him.

0:02:180:02:20

Like how you loved Peter?

0:02:200:02:22

Whitney, he's...he's really, really nice.

0:02:220:02:24

He's organised.

0:02:240:02:26

He's so reliable.

0:02:260:02:27

And bores you.

0:02:270:02:28

And bosses you about.

0:02:280:02:30

And acts like your big brother.

0:02:300:02:32

-No!

-Yes.

0:02:320:02:34

Lauren, I can tell. You've got this..."can't breathe" thing!

0:02:340:02:37

SHE SIGHS

0:02:370:02:39

Whitney... Stop. OK? Stop.

0:02:390:02:41

Do we really need to do this today?

0:02:420:02:43

Yes.

0:02:430:02:44

Yes, if you're going today.

0:02:460:02:49

Because Skype is not the same.

0:02:490:02:51

Lauren, it's Scotland.

0:02:520:02:53

That is a hell of a long way to go

0:02:550:02:57

to find out that you are stuck with someone

0:02:570:03:00

I know you ain't sure about.

0:03:000:03:02

I am sure about him, OK?

0:03:030:03:05

-Cos I'm a recovering alcoholic.

-What?

0:03:050:03:08

I have a son. I'm not working.

0:03:080:03:10

What am I actually supposed to do?

0:03:100:03:12

What, live in the house of Grandad Beale for the rest of my life?

0:03:120:03:15

-You know Ian would give anything to have you stay.

-I know he would.

0:03:150:03:18

Course he would, bless him,

0:03:180:03:20

but I can't because I hate this house.

0:03:200:03:23

I hate it.

0:03:230:03:24

It's like living in an actual grave.

0:03:250:03:28

Everywhere I look, each corner has a bad memory, right back to Lucy.

0:03:290:03:34

I really need to go.

0:03:360:03:37

OK? I do.

0:03:380:03:39

Anyway, how long do you think I'd actually last on my own?

0:03:420:03:45

You're not serious?

0:03:450:03:47

Lauren, you're beautiful.

0:03:470:03:49

You are an intelligent, smart woman, OK?

0:03:510:03:53

And I thought we wouldn't do this unless we were 100% sure.

0:03:550:03:58

Oh, OK. Mm-hm. So...

0:03:590:04:03

you and Halfway...

0:04:030:04:05

Don't you dare try and make this about me, all right?

0:04:050:04:07

This is about you.

0:04:070:04:09

Forget him. He's gone.

0:04:090:04:10

I ain't got no intention of keeping in touch with him.

0:04:100:04:14

Look...

0:04:140:04:16

..I'm not saying it won't be scary, trying to make your own way...

0:04:170:04:22

But you'd last.

0:04:230:04:24

Well, I do love him.

0:04:280:04:30

Louie loves him.

0:04:300:04:32

OK.

0:04:350:04:36

Ain't that how you ended up with Steven?

0:04:440:04:46

I am saying, one day,

0:04:500:04:52

given the circumstances,

0:04:520:04:55

I will mind the chip shop,

0:04:550:04:56

-overlook the fact that you play dirty.

-You what?

0:04:560:05:00

Listen, it wasn't me sneaking out samosas in the first place.

0:05:000:05:03

Normal hostilities will resume first thing tomorrow.

0:05:030:05:06

Too right they will. And the bet is still on.

0:05:060:05:08

Too right it is. And this time, I will lock up my chilli sauce.

0:05:080:05:11

Masood...

0:05:110:05:13

Thank you.

0:05:130:05:14

Don't use your feminine wiles on me, Kathy Beale.

0:05:140:05:17

Donna.

0:05:180:05:19

I ain't going.

0:05:190:05:21

I can't stand funerals.

0:05:210:05:23

No! OK?

0:05:250:05:27

I've got to work my stall.

0:05:270:05:29

That is just wrong, Donna.

0:05:290:05:32

Step up, will ya?

0:05:320:05:33

You are the best friend Abi had round here.

0:05:330:05:36

You know what?

0:05:360:05:38

I bet Jonah and all that lot from the vet's don't even turn up.

0:05:380:05:41

Me, you and Jay are the best friends my cousin had.

0:05:410:05:44

I can't...

0:05:440:05:46

It's just really sad.

0:05:470:05:49

So much of her life, she was playing a grown-up,

0:05:500:05:55

waiting for her future to happen.

0:05:550:05:57

If she'd've known it was going to be this short, she wouldn't have

0:05:580:06:01

wasted her time cleaning the bog or having early nights.

0:06:010:06:06

I mean, how many parties did she go to, let alone have?

0:06:080:06:12

This is the first time Abi

0:06:120:06:15

has ever been properly the centre of attention.

0:06:150:06:18

Then we make it count, Don.

0:06:240:06:26

Ow! Oh, for goodness' sake!

0:06:310:06:34

Even though Halfway's finally left us, he's still causing accidents.

0:06:350:06:39

I'm just checking how much bread we've got.

0:06:390:06:41

I nearly tripped over and broke my neck.

0:06:410:06:43

-All right, I'll call him.

-I'll call him.

0:06:430:06:45

-I didn't think you liked Halfway.

-Oh...

0:06:450:06:48

The ol' Valentine card.

0:06:480:06:49

No, I don't like him. Go on, what's his number?

0:06:490:06:51

All right, here you are.

0:06:510:06:53

PHONE RINGS IN ROOM

0:06:570:06:59

He really is a div, that boy.

0:06:590:07:02

Now, you sure you're all right with the sandwiches?

0:07:020:07:04

Cos Kathy'll sort the hot stuff when we get back.

0:07:040:07:06

-Do you know that Max is banned from the funeral?

-Oh, don't.

0:07:060:07:09

Even hearing the word "funeral" makes me well up.

0:07:090:07:11

I know... So sad.

0:07:110:07:14

She was just so young.

0:07:140:07:16

It's heartbreaking. It just goes to show,

0:07:160:07:18

you've got to grab every chance of happiness you get.

0:07:180:07:22

Erm, what is Halfway's regiment? Do you know?

0:07:220:07:25

Bedford or...

0:07:250:07:26

..Berkshire or...

0:07:270:07:29

No, it's Buckinghamshire, weren't it?

0:07:290:07:31

-I don't know.

-Mick!

0:07:310:07:33

All right, er... See ya later.

0:07:330:07:35

DOOR SLAMS

0:07:560:07:58

How dare you show your face here?!

0:09:160:09:19

You're barred from this funeral, you understand?!

0:09:190:09:22

Her mother made it perfectly clear.

0:09:220:09:25

You want to know how many tranquilizers it took to get

0:09:250:09:29

her in that car?!

0:09:290:09:31

You've caused enough damage to last a lifetime.

0:09:340:09:38

Her whole life.

0:09:380:09:40

It should be you in that coffin.

0:09:410:09:44

Yeah, I know.

0:09:460:09:47

Today's not about me, is it?

0:09:570:09:58

And you...

0:10:010:10:02

..you're just as bad as he is.

0:10:030:10:05

Can we just not?! Please!

0:10:050:10:09

Not today!

0:10:090:10:10

Pants, old train tickets,

0:10:280:10:31

a lot of chocolate.

0:10:310:10:32

Password locked.

0:10:340:10:35

Ah!

0:10:370:10:39

Who in this family actually knows, like, actual useful facts and that?

0:10:390:10:43

Johnny, all right?

0:10:460:10:48

Right, listen - Whitney is completely smitten with Halfway.

0:10:480:10:53

Yeah, I know!

0:10:530:10:54

What is his regiment?

0:10:540:10:56

And that's 100% biodegradable, yeah?

0:10:580:11:00

OK. Thank you. Bye.

0:11:020:11:05

You sure? I thought we were broke.

0:11:050:11:07

"We"?

0:11:070:11:09

It's not much, but it was a good idea.

0:11:090:11:12

Don't flatter yourself.

0:11:130:11:14

It's the first one you've had since I've known ya.

0:11:140:11:18

HE EXHALES

0:11:180:11:19

I'm not snapping, OK? It's just friendly banter.

0:11:190:11:23

Come on. We can still make it.

0:11:270:11:30

OK.

0:11:310:11:32

Come on, darling.

0:11:320:11:33

Come on, now.

0:11:340:11:36

What are people going to think...

0:11:370:11:39

if you can't even be there for your own daughter's funeral?

0:11:390:11:42

Mum?

0:11:420:11:43

Nan, why don't you go?

0:11:500:11:51

I'll bring her in.

0:11:510:11:53

-WEAKLY:

-No.

0:12:010:12:03

SHE BREATHES HEAVILY

0:12:030:12:05

His name is Callum Highway.

0:12:120:12:14

Well, they call him Halfway.

0:12:140:12:16

No, no, no, sorry, I just said to the lady on the phone.

0:12:170:12:22

He's not family, no.

0:12:220:12:23

He's an old family friend.

0:12:230:12:25

Well, that's... Yeah.

0:12:260:12:28

Because he's left his stuff here. That's why...

0:12:280:12:30

Can't you just put me through to him for two minutes?

0:12:330:12:35

Please?

0:12:360:12:37

OK, thanks.

0:12:390:12:40

They don't put civilian calls through to the barracks

0:12:420:12:46

and they won't give out any details of any army tours.

0:12:460:12:49

Do you think he's gone abroad already?

0:12:490:12:52

Well, I'll never find out.

0:12:520:12:54

I guess that's it.

0:12:550:12:56

Abi used to make us leave the landing light on

0:12:580:13:00

when you two were small. Do you remember?

0:13:000:13:03

They've put her in a box all on her own.

0:13:030:13:05

It'll be all black in there, Lauren.

0:13:060:13:09

My little baby girl.

0:13:120:13:13

I just want everything how it was.

0:13:150:13:18

Mum, do you think maybe we could...

0:13:200:13:23

..we could try and get out the car?

0:13:240:13:26

-Yeah.

-Yeah?

0:13:280:13:30

Yeah.

0:13:300:13:31

I can't make my legs move.

0:13:410:13:43

I can't...

0:13:440:13:45

-SHE HYPERVENTILATES

-OK, OK, it's OK, Mum.

0:13:450:13:47

I'm sorry!

0:13:470:13:49

I'm so sorry.

0:13:490:13:50

Look at the state of me!

0:13:510:13:53

I'm sorry...

0:13:540:13:55

I didn't save her.

0:14:020:14:04

Mum...

0:14:050:14:06

I didn't save her!

0:14:070:14:09

And now, every time I try and go to sleep...

0:14:090:14:11

..eyes wide open and all I can see, all I can see, is you and Abi

0:14:130:14:18

falling off that roof and I'm just standing there doing nothing.

0:14:180:14:21

I'm just standing there watching my babies fall and I...

0:14:210:14:24

SHE SOBS

0:14:270:14:30

And you kids are everything.

0:14:320:14:34

Yeah?

0:14:380:14:39

You're the best thing that ever happened to me.

0:14:390:14:41

The best thing I ever did.

0:14:410:14:43

My beautiful, blonde girl.

0:14:460:14:48

What kind of mother...

0:14:510:14:53

What kind of useless, worthless, useless mother...?

0:14:530:14:56

Even now, even this one, final thing and I'm letting her down.

0:14:560:14:59

-I can't...

-Mum, you've got to stop doing this to yourself.

0:14:590:15:02

I'm scared.

0:15:020:15:03

I'm scared. What if I'm in there and I...

0:15:030:15:07

What if I pass out or I throw up

0:15:070:15:09

or something and I ruin it for her?

0:15:090:15:11

I'll ruin her.

0:15:120:15:14

I can't.

0:15:180:15:20

I can't say goodbye to her.

0:15:220:15:24

SOMBRE ORGAN MUSIC

0:15:280:15:31

The damage your brother has done.

0:15:350:15:38

We could go back to the Square

0:15:380:15:40

and find he'd torched it or run off with my great-granddaughter.

0:15:400:15:44

What would Max run off with his granddaughter for, Cora?

0:15:440:15:47

Just to punish someone, probably.

0:15:470:15:49

If she was well enough to leave the hospital, she'd be here,

0:15:500:15:53

wouldn't she? Her mum's funeral.

0:15:530:15:56

You can't ban Max from his own daughter's funeral

0:15:560:15:59

and expect to get away with it.

0:15:590:16:01

Do me a favour, Cora.

0:16:010:16:03

Listen to me, Jack.

0:16:030:16:05

This is the man who tried to kill Ian Beale.

0:16:050:16:07

Flatten Walford.

0:16:090:16:11

He's sick, Jack.

0:16:110:16:12

He's got mental health problems.

0:16:140:16:16

You know what? You need to button it, Cora, all right?

0:16:160:16:18

You don't know what you're talking about. He won't do anything stupid.

0:16:180:16:22

Max will be fine.

0:16:220:16:23

Oh, yeah?

0:16:250:16:26

You want to bet on that?

0:16:260:16:28

I wish I'd known...how long Abi would get, you know?

0:16:320:16:35

I wasted so much time.

0:16:380:16:40

Fighting with your father. Pointless.

0:16:430:16:45

All caught up and...

0:16:470:16:48

I wish I'd had the courage to work out what I wanted, you know,

0:16:520:16:57

and not just been swept along by some...

0:16:570:17:00

the wrong man.

0:17:000:17:02

Learn.

0:17:100:17:11

All my mistakes.

0:17:120:17:14

Mum, stay here.

0:17:310:17:32

No.

0:17:330:17:35

No, I just...

0:17:350:17:36

I'm going to try...

0:17:360:17:39

I'll get my breath...

0:17:390:17:40

Mum, stay here.

0:17:400:17:43

Abi knew how much you loved her.

0:17:480:17:50

She loved you, too.

0:17:510:17:53

Mum.

0:17:570:17:58

We are here to remember the life of Abigail Branning,

0:18:030:18:09

precious mother, cherished daughter...

0:18:090:18:13

-WHISPERS:

-Sorry. Can we just...?

0:18:130:18:15

-..granddaughter...

-So sorry.

0:18:150:18:17

..and sister.

0:18:170:18:18

Let us all rise and say the Lord's Prayer.

0:18:190:18:23

ALL: Our Father, who art in heaven...

0:18:280:18:32

..hallowed be Thy name.

0:18:340:18:35

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done,

0:18:370:18:42

on Earth as it is in Heaven.

0:18:420:18:45

Give us, this day, our daily bread...

0:18:450:18:48

Excuse me.

0:18:480:18:49

Where's the baby? Where's Baby Branning?

0:18:490:18:51

Look, you don't understand, all right?

0:18:510:18:53

It's been a very difficult day. My brother's...

0:18:530:18:55

Mr Branning, no-one can leave the premises without going through a...

0:18:550:18:58

Yeah, we've all just...

0:18:580:19:00

How can you just lose a baby?

0:19:000:19:02

I can assure you we haven't lost Baby Branning.

0:19:020:19:03

Where is she, then?!

0:19:030:19:05

You all right, Jack?

0:19:070:19:08

Listen, I'm sorry.

0:19:100:19:13

-What you doing here?

-You all right?

0:19:130:19:15

Yeah, yeah, I've just been registering her name.

0:19:150:19:19

It's extenuating circumstances

0:19:190:19:20

cos we've passed the official cut-off point.

0:19:200:19:23

Is it done?

0:19:230:19:25

Can't be far off.

0:19:260:19:27

Here, do you want a cuddle? Come on.

0:19:290:19:31

Come on darlin'. Shh.

0:19:310:19:32

There you go...

0:19:320:19:34

-WHISPERS:

-Hello. Hello.

0:19:340:19:37

Shh, shh, shh.

0:19:370:19:39

Max?

0:19:390:19:40

Births, deaths, marriages...

0:19:400:19:43

Every pretty big event ends in sandwiches and bowl of crisps.

0:19:430:19:47

Do you know what? Every time I'm in that kitchen,

0:19:470:19:50

I just expect Abi to be standing there in the doorway.

0:19:500:19:53

Teen.

0:19:590:20:00

Ah! Well, if it ain't the main man himself.

0:20:020:20:04

All right?

0:20:050:20:06

You all right?

0:20:070:20:09

I forgot my bag.

0:20:090:20:11

Have ya?

0:20:110:20:12

Oh, that bag.

0:20:150:20:17

Pleasure.

0:20:170:20:18

Thanks.

0:20:180:20:19

Anyway...

0:20:240:20:26

Sorry for bothering.

0:20:260:20:27

-Go after him!

-Huh?

0:20:350:20:36

Go after him!

0:20:360:20:38

And this time make it count, all right?

0:20:380:20:40

Otherwise you ain't coming back in.

0:20:400:20:42

Oh, apron! SHE CHUCKLES

0:20:420:20:44

There's no rush.

0:20:560:20:58

You know, I'm not rushing you. Take as long as you like.

0:20:580:21:01

Providing we're around Liverpool by rush hour,

0:21:020:21:04

then should be pretty smooth sailing.

0:21:040:21:06

Then it's just me, you and little Lou-Lou, isn't it?

0:21:060:21:09

Louie.

0:21:090:21:11

Start again.

0:21:110:21:12

Whole rest of our lives.

0:21:130:21:15

You all right, little monster? Let's go get you some crisps.

0:21:180:21:21

Why don't you take five minutes and meet us by the car?

0:21:210:21:24

Come on, matey.

0:21:240:21:25

So, I was, erm... I was wondering...

0:21:300:21:33

..do soldiers still get to write letters and that? Or is it...?

0:21:340:21:37

-Er, text, e-mail, Skype.

-Oh.

0:21:370:21:40

Well, you could e-mail me if you like.

0:21:420:21:43

Can I e-mail ya?

0:21:450:21:47

Well, I'd like you to.

0:21:470:21:48

Mick, look.

0:21:540:21:55

Oi-oi! Don't drop her, will ya?

0:21:570:21:59

I left my bag behind on purpose.

0:22:010:22:03

Well, I'm guessing that this means that he is actually...

0:22:090:22:14

"perfect"?

0:22:140:22:16

THEY GIGGLE

0:22:160:22:17

Five minutes, all right?

0:22:350:22:36

Cheers, Jay.

0:22:370:22:38

While I draw breath, you cannot die

0:23:260:23:28

You're locked in my heart

0:23:310:23:33

You're there in my dreams

0:23:350:23:37

Whenever I close my eyes

0:23:390:23:41

You're wrapped in my love

0:23:420:23:44

You're held in my soul

0:23:460:23:47

You're warm in the memory

0:23:470:23:48

Alive only yesterday

0:23:500:23:51

Whenever I close my eyes

0:23:510:23:53

With my final breath

0:23:550:23:58

I will follow behind, I swear

0:23:580:24:00

I will find the place

0:24:040:24:05

Wait for me there

0:24:080:24:09

Wait for me then

0:24:120:24:13

And the sun will shine

0:24:130:24:15

And the stars will blaze

0:24:150:24:16

I will reach for your hand

0:24:210:24:22

I miss your face

0:24:290:24:30

I'll see your face

0:24:320:24:33

We'll both be free

0:24:360:24:37

Forever embrace

0:24:370:24:39

When at last I close my eyes.

0:24:400:24:42

HE EXHALES

0:25:110:25:14

I'm sorry, Abi.

0:25:150:25:17

I'm sorry, Lauren.

0:25:470:25:48

Dad, I need to leave.

0:25:540:25:56

I know.

0:25:560:25:57

Lauren, life's short.

0:25:590:26:01

Just be happy.

0:26:030:26:04

Live your life for the both of ya.
