Mate, that was Premiership.

-Even your Steven would have struggled out there.

-Too right.

FANS CHANTS FOR STEVIE ECHO

0:03:060:03:10

ANGUISHED GROAN

0:03:130:03:14

Dad, is that Stevie Farrow's brother?

0:03:210:03:24

QUESTION ECHOES

0:03:240:03:27

RHYTHMIC CLAPPING

0:03:270:03:30

Early doors, was it?

0:03:460:03:48

-Usually midnight before the boxers come in.

-Your lucky day.

0:03:480:03:51

-Ow! You trying to sew it up or cut it off?!

-Don't tempt me!

0:03:580:04:02

-Have you done this before?

-We are trained, you know.

0:04:020:04:05

-So were the SS.

-Be a brave little soldier and let me do my job.

0:04:050:04:08

Thought you were supposed to be a caring profession?

0:04:080:04:11

When you've patched up one drunk, you've patched them all.

0:04:110:04:14

I'm not drunk. SHE SNIFFS

0:04:140:04:16

-Of course you're not.

-I had a few beers with the game.

0:04:170:04:20

This cut itself, then, did it?

0:04:200:04:22

Phone number so soon? You don't hang around, love.

0:04:310:04:34

Clean and dry, 10 days.

0:04:340:04:37

Make an appointment.

0:04:370:04:39

In your own time...

0:04:440:04:45

Service with a smile.

0:04:500:04:52

DIALOGUE MUTED

0:05:010:05:03

COINS CLATTER

0:05:030:05:05

Bit early for you, isn't it?

0:06:080:06:10

Miss the step again?

0:06:120:06:14

-Mum, can you...?

-You need to sort yourself out, David.

0:06:140:06:18

-Look at the state of you.

-I can't do it myself.

0:06:180:06:21

-When are you going to get a job?

-Mum!

0:06:210:06:23

I'm sick of running round after you.

0:06:230:06:26

Please!

0:06:260:06:29

Do it yourself.

0:06:290:06:30

Didn't they have anything?

0:06:490:06:51

Yeah, if I was a brainless idiot who wanted to bore myself to death.

0:06:510:06:55

Don't they have a job centre for gifted people?

0:06:560:06:58

Well, who'd want to spend 12 hours a day with their hand down a bog,

0:06:580:07:02

-or stood on a conveyor belt labelling boxes?

-Someone with bills to pay?

0:07:020:07:05

It's soul-destroying, seeing the best they've got to offer and the peanuts they pay.

0:07:050:07:10

-Where are you going?

-To put me hand down the bog.

0:07:100:07:12

Ours is the only one in our street don't clean itself!

0:07:120:07:15

MAN: Oi, Steve!

0:07:350:07:36

Let you back in, then?

0:07:480:07:50

Family privilege, Kayce. Still waiting for the ring?

0:07:500:07:53

-Steven buys me jewellery all the time.

-Not the piece that matters.

0:07:530:07:56

I don't need a rock to prove that he loves me.

0:07:560:07:58

Rings aren't about love, darling,

0:07:580:08:01

they're about bagging that big cheque when he leaves you.

0:08:010:08:03

Says the relationship expert.

0:08:030:08:05

Come to think of it,

0:08:050:08:06

when was the last time you actually went out with anyone?

0:08:060:08:09

-I'm very choosy.

-You mean the girls are.

0:08:090:08:13

-I prefer women with brains.

-Careful, Dave.

0:08:130:08:16

If I walk away, you'll be on your own. Take a look around.

0:08:160:08:22

There's not one girl in here that'd even look at you.

0:08:230:08:26

Sure, all the girls love a bad lad.

0:08:260:08:28

Tell you what they don't like?

0:08:280:08:31

A loser.

0:08:310:08:32

-Flatterer!

-Move over, Dave.

0:08:320:08:35

The big boys'll be in soon.

0:08:350:08:37

That was a sitter, Bro. I'd have nailed it, no problem.

0:08:480:08:51

-You're rubbish.

-Should have been ten more, shouldn't it?

0:08:510:08:54

I could hear Robbie from the stands when I missed that header.

0:08:540:08:57

Why do they call them stands when everyone's sat down?

0:08:570:08:59

-Go on, then, what's the story?

-He was probably drunk.

0:09:010:09:04

-Footy, you know the score.

-Yeah, right.

-There, were you?

0:09:040:09:07

I'd put my house on bevvies being involved.

0:09:070:09:09

-You mean Ste's house.

-At least he's got one.

0:09:090:09:11

Where are you living, Dave?

0:09:110:09:13

-Kaycee!

-Mummy still washing your underpants?

0:09:130:09:15

Well, I haven't got a cash cow to milk when it suits me, have I?

0:09:150:09:19

-Haven't you?

-Just keep it down you two, yeah?

0:09:190:09:23

Remember where you are.

0:09:230:09:24

Go and get yourself another beer, Dave. It's free.

0:09:240:09:27

Don't mind if I do, Kayce.

0:09:270:09:30

Same again, Dave?

0:09:300:09:32

-Me? Winding him up?

-It's just our Dave, isn't it?

0:09:340:09:37

I'm trying. But you know what he's like,

0:09:370:09:39

and you're always sticking up for him! Why?

0:09:390:09:42

Hiya, mate. Yeah, come on. Want a picture? Is this your dad here?

0:09:450:09:49

-STEVE:

-What's your name?

0:09:490:09:51

Do you play footy? Good lad!

0:09:510:09:53

I think you've had enough, Bro.

0:10:140:10:17

-Me? I'm just relaxing, Ste.

-Yeah, relaxed as a newt.

0:10:170:10:19

-Can we go? Table's booked.

-Yeah.

0:10:190:10:21

-Great, I'm starving.

-You are joking!

0:10:210:10:25

-They don't let drunks in.

-Oh, yeah, I forgot, it's Wags only.

0:10:250:10:29

-No, it's grown-ups.

-Give it a rest you two, eh?

0:10:290:10:33

Come on Ste, I've had nothing all day.

0:10:330:10:35

Ring Childline.

0:10:350:10:37

Time to get you home, Bruv.

0:10:380:10:40

I'm coming with you.

0:10:400:10:42

Cab, kettle, bed, yeah? Seriously...

0:10:430:10:47

Come on.

0:11:120:11:13

HE RETCHES

0:11:130:11:14

Oh, you pig!

0:11:140:11:16

Mum, I don't suppose you could...?

0:11:490:11:51

Last time, honest. The stitches are coming out today.

0:11:530:11:57

You still not talking to me?

0:11:570:11:59

Be gentle, I'm very sensitive.

0:12:260:12:29

Well, mind you don't faint, we've just had the floor cleaned.

0:12:290:12:32

-Any problems?

-Apart from our goalie being out for the semi?

0:12:320:12:35

With the hand.

0:12:350:12:38

Apart from not being able to use it?

0:12:380:12:40

-Shoelaces are undone.

-Are they?

0:12:400:12:41

-Not got a girlfriend to do them up for you?

-Situation vacant.

0:12:410:12:44

Hard to believe, isn't it?

0:12:440:12:46

-On account of you being a divvy?

-Nah, too many candidates.

0:12:460:12:49

Someone only a mother could love.

0:12:490:12:50

-She's not talking to me.

-Cos you're a divvy.

-You're really funny.

0:12:500:12:54

-You remind me of me.

-I'm not funny at all, then.

0:12:540:12:56

Listen, about the last time I was here...

0:13:050:13:07

Sorry?

0:13:070:13:09

Made me feel like an idiot.

0:13:090:13:11

You don't need me for that.

0:13:110:13:13

Deserved it, though, I must have looked a state.

0:13:130:13:16

You reckon?

0:13:160:13:17

He's gone now anyway. Different fella here now.

0:13:170:13:21

That's what they all say.

0:13:210:13:23

And I binned that aftershave you didn't like.

0:13:230:13:25

Gone back to the pound shop.

0:13:250:13:27

-No more fighting, then?

-Nah, that score's settled.

0:13:270:13:30

How do you know he won't come after you?

0:13:310:13:33

The other fella?

0:13:330:13:35

Because he's embarrassed about it,

0:13:350:13:37

lashing out at nothing,

0:13:370:13:40

hurting people,

0:13:400:13:42

hurting himself, and he's thinking, "Come on, sunshine,

0:13:420:13:46

"stop being a muppet,

0:13:460:13:47

"especially in front of really good-looking women,

0:13:470:13:51

"start acting your age for once."

0:13:510:13:53

HISS Ow!

0:13:530:13:54

Sorry, thought I was going to throw up, there.

0:13:540:13:57

Congratulations!

0:14:010:14:03

You are officially discharged.

0:14:030:14:05

A phone number this time, surely?

0:14:150:14:17

Ohh, I said the website people were coming again today, didn't I? Told you to keep out of the way.

0:14:360:14:42

What is it this time, "Stevie Farrow's Top Ten Chocolate Bars"?

0:14:420:14:46

Dave!

0:14:490:14:51

What? I want to watch.

0:14:510:14:54

Action!

0:15:040:15:06

We always knew Steven was special,

0:15:100:15:13

-from the day he was born.

-A star came up from the East...

0:15:130:15:17

-We didn't have very much...

-Just a stable, and some straw.

0:15:170:15:20

All he'd ever ask for at Christmas, was a new ball.

0:15:200:15:23

And an apple and an orange.

0:15:230:15:25

Though it was hard, you know, when his dad died,

0:15:250:15:28

but he just battled through, made him more determined.

0:15:280:15:32

Have you got that Hovis music off the telly?

0:15:320:15:35

I always knew he'd make it.

0:15:350:15:37

She's psychic, me mum.

0:15:370:15:38

And he could have gone anywhere after the big clubs came in for him.

0:15:380:15:43

-Barcelona, Milan...

-Scunthorpe, Accrington Stanley...

0:15:430:15:46

But he wanted to come back here,

0:15:460:15:50

-close to his mum...

-Bring his washing home!

0:15:500:15:54

Success has not spoiled him.

0:15:540:15:56

-Still tight...

-He just likes being with his old mates...

0:15:560:16:00

Cos they don't mind the cross dressing...

0:16:000:16:02

Cut!

0:16:020:16:04

What?

0:16:070:16:08

What are you doing back here?

0:16:250:16:27

-Complications.

-What complications?

0:16:270:16:29

Must have been that superbug. What's it called?

0:16:290:16:31

-I think you'll find this is stalking.

-I've got good news.

0:16:310:16:34

Learned to tie your own shoelaces?

0:16:340:16:35

You've been chosen at random, from thousands of nurses, to go on a date with me.

0:16:350:16:39

-You said it was good news?

-Chance of a lifetime, one night only.

0:16:390:16:41

-And it's part of your hypocritical oath to accept.

-I'm washing my hair.

0:16:410:16:44

-Every night for the next century.

-Best restaurant in town.

0:16:440:16:47

-In my opinion...

-Sorry, I'm allergic.

0:16:470:16:49

-To what?

-Divvies.

0:16:490:16:51

-There are women who'd kill for an offer like this, you know.

-All doing life, yeah.

0:16:510:16:55

Look, maybe I'm insane to be turning down a fella as perfect as you, and maybe I'll wake up one day

0:16:550:17:02

and realise I made the biggest mistake of my life, but, just so there's no misunderstanding,

0:17:020:17:07

I'll say it very slowly.

0:17:070:17:09

I wouldn't go out with you if you were the last... man... on... earth.

0:17:090:17:17

Comprende?

0:17:170:17:19

Mashed, it was, like a hamburger.

0:17:230:17:26

Imagine putting your leg in a blender and flicking the switch for 10 seconds.

0:17:260:17:30

Well, that's what it looked like.

0:17:300:17:31

-What do you fancy?

-Something vegetarian!

0:17:330:17:36

Play it again, Sam.

0:17:430:17:45

Actually, he never said that.

0:17:470:17:49

You what? Humphrey GoKart? Course he did.

0:17:490:17:52

No, it's just "Play it". And, anyway, it's Ilsa who says it first.

0:17:520:17:58

"Play it once, Sam.

0:17:580:18:00

Play 'As Time Goes By'."

0:18:000:18:02

-That was brilliant.

-I'm on earlies.

0:18:050:18:07

I suppose you've got the day off?

0:18:110:18:13

Yeah, wasn't sure what we'd be doing tonight so...

0:18:130:18:17

No! I wasn't assuming we'd...

0:18:200:18:22

I just didn't know where we'd end up.

0:18:220:18:25

Clubbing or something...

0:18:250:18:26

So where do you work, anyway?

0:18:280:18:31

I'm, er, "resting" right now.

0:18:310:18:34

Kept busy with our Ste, though.

0:18:340:18:36

Full-time job looking out for him, everyone wants a piece.

0:18:360:18:40

Sure you don't want any more?

0:18:400:18:42

Doesn't look like there's much left.

0:18:420:18:44

-You sure you've had enough?

-Have you?

0:19:010:19:06

-Can we have the bill please, mate?

-We're going Dutch.

0:19:060:19:09

No way. It's my shout.

0:19:090:19:11

I'm earning, you're not.

0:19:110:19:13

If anything, I should be the one paying. I'd feel better.

0:19:130:19:16

And I'd feel crap.

0:19:160:19:18

-Thanks, mate.

-Thanks.

0:19:200:19:22

Modern women, eh?

0:19:250:19:27

Er, that's 45 each.

0:19:310:19:33

What have I got?

0:19:440:19:45

-I've only got 42.

-It's fine.

0:19:450:19:48

Still time for a nightcap somewhere.

0:19:560:19:58

-I think you've had enough.

-We only had the one bottle. What?

0:19:580:20:04

You had three large vodkas before I even got there. I saw the bill?

0:20:040:20:10

They must have added them, the sneaky little...

0:20:100:20:15

First date nerves, what can I say?

0:20:150:20:17

You sure about that?

0:20:170:20:19

-Just here, please.

-What's the damage?

0:20:230:20:26

It's not about the money, Dave.

0:20:260:20:29

Am I going to see you again, or what?

0:20:300:20:34

Idiot.

0:20:340:20:37

Four days in a row you've sat down with me. Fell out with your mates?

0:20:510:20:56

Trying to stay out the pub, mum.

0:20:560:20:59

-What's her name?

-PHONE RINGS

0:20:590:21:00

Hello.

0:21:000:21:02

Hope you like the venue.

0:21:080:21:10

I feel a bit overdressed.

0:21:100:21:13

We could go somewhere different, somewhere...without a bar.

0:21:140:21:19

We can sit in the car if you like?

0:21:210:21:23

-It's warmer.

-No, I'm fine, honest.

0:21:230:21:26

I like the cold.

0:21:260:21:28

-I'm just glad you called.

-I nearly didn't.

0:21:280:21:31

You still narked about them drinks?

0:21:310:21:33

What, being on a date with a guy who needs to be half cut to get through the evening with me?

0:21:330:21:37

I told you, I was nervous.

0:21:370:21:39

-I know the signs.

-What signs?

0:21:390:21:40

-That wasn't nerves, that was habit.

-I had a few drinks, so what?

-I know what I'm talking about.

0:21:400:21:45

So do I. Look, if you think I've got a problem, then so has everyone else I know.

0:21:450:21:49

-Just because you're a nurse, you think...

-My dad's an alcoholic!

0:21:490:21:55

I'm sorry.

0:21:550:21:57

-Look, Dave, I just need you to be honest with me.

-A gorgeous girl agrees to go out with me.

0:22:010:22:06

What fella wouldn't need a few snifters to calm himself down?

0:22:060:22:09

-You hid it.

-I wasn't hiding anything, you saw the bill.

0:22:090:22:13

I didn't know I had to declare every sip.

0:22:130:22:15

Ruth, I promise you,

0:22:170:22:19

I don't have a problem.

0:22:190:22:22

I just needed to ask,

0:22:270:22:30

I needed to be sure.

0:22:300:22:32

You don't know what it's like, living with it.

0:22:320:22:35

No, I don't.

0:22:350:22:37

But I'm not your dad.

0:22:370:22:38

People who drink, they're good at lying,

0:22:460:22:48

-you never know what the truth is.

-Hold your horses, we've only been out once.

0:22:480:22:51

Look, I really like you,

0:22:510:22:54

but I'd rather walk away now before I start feeling...

0:22:540:22:57

I really like you too.

0:23:000:23:02

Just give us a chance, eh?

0:23:060:23:08

I've never told anyone about him before.

0:23:170:23:20

I hate secrets,

0:23:200:23:22

but he's mine.

0:23:230:23:25

You've still got him, though.

0:23:270:23:30

What use he is.

0:23:300:23:32

You ever talk to him?

0:23:330:23:35

You should.

0:23:390:23:41

Before it's too late!

0:23:440:23:46

Can I have a suck on your flake?

0:23:550:23:56

I can't believe you just did that.

0:24:020:24:04

I deserve a kiss for that.

0:24:040:24:06

You've got it on my nose now!

0:24:140:24:16

# Time after time I think Oh, Lord, what's the use?

0:24:160:24:21

# Time after time I think It's just no good

0:24:210:24:25

# Sooner or later in life The things you love, you lose

0:24:250:24:30

# But you've got the love I need To see me through

0:24:300:24:34

# You got the love

0:24:340:24:36

# You got the love

0:24:360:24:38

# You got the love

0:24:380:24:40

# You got the love

0:24:430:24:45

# You got the love

0:24:450:24:47

# You got the love

0:24:470:24:51

# You got the love

0:24:510:24:54

# You got the love

0:24:540:24:55

# You got the love

0:24:550:25:00

# You got the love

0:25:000:25:02

# You got the love

0:25:020:25:04

# You got the love

0:25:040:25:09

# Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh... #

0:25:090:25:15

-Do we have to go?

-I thought you wanted to take a look at this girl?

0:25:160:25:20

-Yeah, and her blind dog.

-Be nice, babe.

0:25:200:25:23

But he's always making a show of us. Remember the last time?

0:25:230:25:26

Yeah but you don't exactly help, do you?

0:25:260:25:28

-You always know exactly what buttons to press.

-Oh, so it's my fault?

0:25:280:25:31

No, I'm saying you enjoy winding him up.

0:25:310:25:33

-Sometimes it's the only way to get through the night. I don't mean it.

-He reckons you enjoy it.

0:25:330:25:38

Well, I don't. But I'm not going to sit there and take it, am I?

0:25:380:25:41

You should be sticking up for me more. If you loved me...

0:25:410:25:43

Look, let's just try and have a nice evening.

0:25:430:25:45

We don't want this Ruth girl thinking she's walked into the Addams family.

0:25:450:25:48

Well then promise you'll keep him in line.

0:25:480:25:51

-And when he starts...

-He'll be fine.

0:25:510:25:54

-Steven!

-OK, OK, I promise.

0:25:540:25:57

I could get used to this.

0:26:280:26:29

Don't get used to it.

0:26:410:26:42

So you been here before, Ruth?

0:26:440:26:46

I'm always working,

0:26:460:26:48

don't really get out much.

0:26:480:26:50

-Shouldn't you be on lemonade or something?

-One won't harm him.

0:26:500:26:54

-He knows when to stop.

-Game's not for five days, kid.

0:26:540:26:57

And besides, it's the final!

0:26:570:27:00

-Deserves one drink at least!

-I'm dead proud of you, baby.

0:27:000:27:04

You know what? Took us so long, I thought it'd never happen.

0:27:040:27:07

-You're going to come, aren't you?

-She can't make it.

0:27:070:27:10

I don't really know anything about football, sorry.

0:27:100:27:14

You don't have to. But it'll be a great night.

0:27:140:27:17

Think of all the free champagne.

0:27:170:27:19

That works for Dave.

0:27:190:27:21

-Yeah, I might.

-I thought you said you didn't like football?

0:27:210:27:25

Lady's prerogative to change her mind, mate, innit?

0:27:250:27:28

Cheers.

0:27:310:27:32

-You eating that, or playing a tune on it?

-It tastes funny.

0:27:430:27:46

It's just a bunch of leaves.

0:27:460:27:49

You've hardly touched it.

0:27:490:27:51

You're such a fussy eater.

0:27:520:27:54

I'm not!

0:27:540:27:55

Always counting the calories.

0:27:550:27:58

-I eat.

-So do I. Like a horse.

0:27:580:28:02

Nothing wrong with a healthy appetite!

0:28:020:28:04

And you look great on it.

0:28:040:28:06

Mine's all right, too. Thanks for asking.

0:28:090:28:13

So the man says,

0:28:260:28:28

"But when the doctor did it, he had both hands on my shoulders."

0:28:280:28:32

SHE LAUGHS

0:28:320:28:35

You must have heard that one.

0:28:350:28:37

I could tell you worse.

0:28:370:28:39

-Yeah?

-Mmm-hmm.

0:28:390:28:42

You want to watch this one, kid.

0:28:420:28:44

-You know what they say about nurses...

-No, what do they say?

0:28:440:28:47

-Relax, Dave, he's joking.

-I'm perfectly relaxed.

0:28:470:28:49

-Will be in a minute.

-What's up, Kaycee? Not centre of attention for once?

0:28:500:28:53

-Hey!

-That's your problem, isn't it?

0:28:530:28:56

-They love each other really.

-Pass the vinegar.

0:28:560:28:58

-Get it yourself.

-Best mates.

0:28:580:29:01

To Dave, for finding someone daft enough to go out with him.

0:29:130:29:16

Thanks!

0:29:160:29:17

Look after her, mate, before she realises what a big mistake she's made.

0:29:170:29:21

I intend to.

0:29:210:29:23

Where did you two meet? Police cell?

0:29:260:29:29

Kebab shop?

0:29:290:29:31

At work, actually,

0:29:310:29:33

-in casualty.

-Figures.

-What?

0:29:330:29:36

I said it figures!

0:29:360:29:39

Kaycee!

0:29:390:29:40

And remind us, what first attracted you to the millionaire Steven Farrow?

0:29:400:29:44

-Bro!

-I didn't even know who he was, actually.

0:29:440:29:46

-Oh, you are joking!

-Dave!

0:29:460:29:49

Remember what we said?

0:29:490:29:51

Just wind your gob in, kid, yeah?

0:29:520:29:55

I'm sorry about this, they're being like kids.

0:29:550:29:58

Makes a nice change to have another adult to talk to.

0:29:580:30:01

-So go on then, how many?

-I don't know!

0:30:060:30:08

-See that, Kaycee?

-You're a nurse!

-Just because I'm a nurse doesn't mean I'd know.

0:30:080:30:12

-Who's more likely to know than a nurse?

-An osteopath?

0:30:120:30:15

-Chiropractor?

-Here we go.

0:30:150:30:17

-I've never needed to know how many bones there are in the body.

-They're drawn to each other.

0:30:170:30:21

Seriously? That's a disgrace. I'm never coming to your hospital.

0:30:210:30:24

-I hope you don't have to.

-You and me, Kaycee. We've got to work harder.

0:30:240:30:28

-Somebody help me.

-What time is it? I'm not used to being out this late.

0:30:280:30:32

-Virtue has its own reward.

-You all right, kid?

0:30:320:30:34

Garcon! Mooro vino, muchos gracias.

0:30:340:30:39

-The night is young, David(!)

-Sitting next to you, love, it's never-ending.

0:30:390:30:43

-I don't think we need another bottle.

-Shall we just get some coffees?

0:30:430:30:46

Only if it's Irish.

0:30:460:30:48

-Actually, I'm quite tired...

-Yo! I said over here, mate!

0:30:480:30:52

-Stop shouting!

-For God's sake!

-Quiet!

0:30:520:30:55

Mr Farrow, please, I must ask you to keep the noise down. The other diners...

0:30:550:31:00

-You're being quite aggressive.

-Yeah, we're sorry.

0:31:000:31:03

-Don't apologise for me!

-Dave!

0:31:030:31:05

You want to know why it's aggressive? Because the service is crap!

0:31:050:31:08

-You deaf or what?

-You have had enough!

0:31:080:31:10

-Oh, you talking to me now, are you?

-I think we should go.

0:31:100:31:13

-I think you've got quite a catch there, Ruth.

-Kaycee!

0:31:130:31:17

Remember our promise?

0:31:170:31:18

I'm sorry, sir, I'm going to have to ask you to leave.

0:31:190:31:22

-I know, mate, we're done.

-I'm not!

-Just put everything on my tab, yeah?

0:31:220:31:26

I'm paying for this.

0:31:260:31:27

-Come on!

-I said I'm paying!

-It's sorted, all right?

-What with?

0:31:270:31:31

What the hell do you think you're playing at!? Get outside!

0:31:310:31:35

What is your problem?

0:31:490:31:50

What is wrong with you two! For God's sake!

0:31:540:31:57

Us two? You mean you two!

0:31:570:32:00

Last chance.

0:32:010:32:02

All right then! You!

0:32:020:32:03

YOU'RE the problem! Remembering which girl you're with.

0:32:030:32:07

-What are you on?

-Oh, come off it, you couldn't keep your hands off her.

0:32:080:32:13

What am I? A piece of meat?

0:32:130:32:15

-Are you joking?

-Taxi!

0:32:150:32:18

And you? You must have seen me coming. You planned this all along, haven't you?

0:32:180:32:23

-Just leave her alone, Dave.

-Leave them both alone, babe.

0:32:230:32:25

Weren't interested at first, were you? An idiot to sew up and ship off. You said so yourself!

0:32:250:32:30

And that's where I should have left it!

0:32:300:32:32

So why stick around, eh? As if I didn't know.

0:32:320:32:34

Step forward, Golden Boy!

0:32:340:32:36

Because I actually thought we could have had something.

0:32:360:32:39

Oh, I know what you thought you could have had!

0:32:390:32:41

-Let her go!

-Get your hands off me!

-Another one bites the dust.

0:32:440:32:47

-Oh, you really want it, don't you?

-Don't even think about it!

0:32:470:32:51

Look, just make sure she gets home all right, babe.

0:32:540:32:57

I'm not a babysitter, Steven.

0:32:570:32:58

Just do it, Kace! I'm not in the mood!

0:32:580:33:00

There's a good little girl.

0:33:000:33:02

So this is how it's going to be, is it?

0:33:050:33:07

Forever.

0:33:070:33:10

When it comes down to it...

0:33:100:33:12

..you will always pick him.

0:33:130:33:15

-You happy now?

-Get lost, will you?

0:33:230:33:24

I'm not going anywhere until you tell me what this is about.

0:33:240:33:27

What was it, eh? Couldn't bear the fact that someone liked me more than you?

0:33:270:33:31

This isn't about Ruth. You've been like this for years.

0:33:310:33:34

-Oh, cos you know what it's like to be me, don't you?

-I'm bored of you.

0:33:340:33:37

We all are. You're not a kid any more. we can't keep tiptoeing around you like some five-year-old.

0:33:370:33:42

What would you know? You're never there!

0:33:420:33:44

Too busy swanning about with your famous mates to care about anything else!

0:33:440:33:48

You know nothing!

0:33:480:33:50

I know enough.

0:33:500:33:52

I lost him too.

0:33:520:33:54

You think this is about Dad?

0:33:540:33:57

You're not the only one who misses him. Every day...

0:33:570:34:00

Get the violin!

0:34:000:34:02

That's why you drink, isn't it? Less painful.

0:34:020:34:04

-Oh, you really are clueless.

-Just look in the mirror, Dave!

0:34:040:34:07

You can't go on like this!

0:34:070:34:09

You think because you can kick a ball about and you've got a bit of wedge that you're better than me?

0:34:090:34:14

Well, you're nowhere close!

0:34:140:34:15

Just get over yourself!

0:34:150:34:17

Dishing orders out like the big "I am". You're not the boss of me!

0:34:170:34:20

Someone needs to be, cos you're doing a rubbish job on your own.

0:34:200:34:23

-If my dad could see you now...

-Don't you dare!

0:34:230:34:25

-He'd be ashamed.

-I'm warning you!

-He'd be turning in his grave!

0:34:250:34:28

CRACK

0:34:300:34:32

Steve?

0:34:400:34:41

Bro?

0:34:460:34:47

PHONE RINGS

0:34:470:34:51

Hello?

0:34:580:35:01

I'm not being a messenger. You talk to him.

0:35:010:35:04

Please, for me.

0:35:060:35:08

'I'm only speaking to you cos Mam asked me to.

0:35:140:35:18

'It's the last time I'm ever going to do it.

0:35:180:35:20

'Impacted double fracture.

0:35:210:35:24

'Eight weeks plaster, three months out.

0:35:240:35:27

'No final for me...mate.

0:35:270:35:29

'You made sure of that.

0:35:300:35:33

'Don't ever speak to me again.'

0:35:330:35:34

I'm...

0:35:340:35:36

Ruth! I know! I know!

0:35:460:35:48

Wait, listen! Please!

0:35:480:35:50

You heard what I did to our Steven?

0:35:500:35:52

I broke his arm! Me! I did that!

0:35:520:35:54

I don't know how it happened.

0:35:540:35:56

OK, yeah, I do know how it happened, I know exactly how it happened.

0:35:560:35:59

You were right about everything.

0:35:590:36:01

I've been stupid, I know that. I didn't want to lose you, Ruth.

0:36:010:36:05

I want to tell you something. It's important. I've not had a drink since that night, not one.

0:36:050:36:10

If I can get through that, I can get through anything, Ruth.

0:36:100:36:13

-Ruth?

-Get your hands off me!

0:36:130:36:15

Take one.

0:36:250:36:28

Yeah, um, Steven's fully fit again now,

0:36:280:36:31

and we're all really thrilled that he's been made the new captain of England.

0:36:310:36:37

I can't remember it being any other way, really. He's always been a bit of a star.

0:36:370:36:41

I remember at school, all the teachers would say,

0:36:410:36:45

"well, if you're half as good as your Steven, you'll do OK."

0:36:450:36:48

But it wasn't about being good, it was about not being Steven.

0:36:480:36:52

It got to the point where I didn't really care how I did at anything.

0:36:570:37:00

I know they didn't mean it, but I never felt like I was David Farrow.

0:37:040:37:10

I didn't know who that person was.

I was Steven Farrow's brother.

0:37:140:37:17

That was my identity.

0:37:170:37:20

SFB.

0:37:200:37:22

I should have had them initials sewn in my shirt.

0:37:220:37:25

With the girls, as well.

0:37:280:37:30

They'd ask me my name and I'd tell them, and just like the teachers they'd say "Steven's brother?"

0:37:300:37:35

And if I said "yeah", their faces would light up, already plotting.

0:37:350:37:39

But if I said "no",

0:37:390:37:40

they'd look straight past me,

0:37:400:37:43

like I was nothing, not even worth a smile.

0:37:430:37:45

I was cleverer than our Ste,

0:37:480:37:50

but clever isn't sexy, is it?

0:37:500:37:53

'It was something that was mine,

0:37:570:37:59

'something Steven had nothing to do with, something I was better at than him.

0:37:590:38:04

'Drinking made me forget who I was.

0:38:040:38:07

'That's what it does. There's nothing profound about it.

0:38:070:38:10

'It's very, very simple.

0:38:100:38:13

'When I drank, I wasn't afraid any more, and I'd spent my whole life being afraid.

0:38:150:38:21

'Afraid of failure, afraid of letting people down...

0:38:210:38:25

'..afraid of the whole journey.

0:38:280:38:30

'I felt angry.'

0:38:320:38:34

I'm sorry about last night.

0:38:340:38:36

'I don't know what at...'

0:38:360:38:37

Please talk to me.

0:38:370:38:39

'but it was better than not feeling anything at all.

0:38:390:38:42

'So I embraced it,

0:38:420:38:43

'made friends with it.

0:38:430:38:46

'Some friend.

0:38:460:38:48

'Drink makes you selfish, cruel...

0:38:480:38:53

'and I just couldn't see that the only things I really needed were right in front of me.'

0:38:540:38:58

You must be very proud of Steven.

0:39:060:39:08

Oh, yes, I am.

0:39:080:39:11

But I'll tell you something, I'm even more proud of you.

0:39:110:39:15

Come on, son.

0:39:180:39:19

'I said I was clever...

0:39:260:39:28

'..but not clever enough to work that one out.

0:39:300:39:32

'I've broken a lot of things, and some of them will take longer to mend than others.

0:39:340:39:39

'Some may never be fixed at all.

0:39:410:39:43

'But I'll never stop trying.

0:39:490:39:51

'That's a promise.'

0:39:550:39:57

# And I've been there before

0:39:590:40:02

# But that life's a bore

0:40:020:40:05

# So full of the superficial

0:40:050:40:10

# Some people want it all

0:40:100:40:13

# But I don't want nothing at all

0:40:130:40:16

# If it ain't you, baby

0:40:160:40:19

# If I ain't got you, baby

0:40:190:40:22

# Some people want diamond rings

0:40:220:40:25

# Some just want everything

0:40:250:40:28

# But everything means nothing

0:40:280:40:31

# If I ain't got you

0:40:310:40:34

# Yeah

0:40:340:40:36

# Some people search for fountains... #

A&E nurse Ruth sees something in him, but whether Dave will be able to put aside his demons for long enough to give their relationship a chance is another matter. Will Steven and Ruth be able to help Dave before he presses the self-destruct button - or will he take them down with him?
