Do you remember the door?
The trouble that we had with it.
And that joiner,
wouldn't stop moaning.
"Couldn't you have got over your door?!"
We built this.
Kill me now.
That's helpful, Johnny.
-Where do you want this, Mum?
We're not sorting anything till this place is clean.
Hey, good job. It's come up well, that.
What do you think of my handiwork?
Yeah, it's OK.
I always knew I'd make a good scrubber.
KNOCK AT DOOR
Hiya! I'm next door.
-Oh. Michelle and Gary.
Hiya. Oh, I hope you don't mind me coming in the back way.
There's a gap in the fence.
Storm, ages ago.
The others never minded.
No, it is fine.
Well, I've just come to say welcome.
I can't even find a decent socket.
Oh, they are all the same, aren't they?
Sockets for phones and God knows what.
I've got one - Callum.
Are you a pain in the bum for your mum?
No, Johnny's a good kid.
I'm a lucky mum. Use that one, son.
So, where did you come from?
Oh, not far.
Just off Marlborough Road.
Oh, I don't know it.
Hard work, moving in.
Yeah. This place was in a right state.
Oh, the others, they weren't well.
Lovely, lovely people, but not well.
Anyway, there's me rabbiting on!
I just came to see if you need a hand.
No, no, we are fine, aren't we, Gary?
Yeah, yeah, I think it's all in hand, but, thanks...
-Well, I'll be going, then!
-Yeah. Lovely to meet you.
-If you need anything...
-Yeah, we will.
Aw, cute, Mum.
-A new friend?
Couldn't find the corkscrew.
Oh. That'll do nicely.
I think we've done a good job.
Hey, whoa, come on.
-Don't be getting upset.
Come on, it's not forever.
You don't know that.
Yes, I do. We've done it once.
And failed - and ended up back here, back where we started.
Worse than where we started.
We were unlucky.
We're all together - there are worse things.
Oh, we said we weren't going to say that.
-It doesn't help.
-I'm trying to be positive.
For having a go before.
I thought you were asleep.
If that's the worst it gets on a day like today,
I think we are doing OK, kid.
MUFFLED CHATTER AND LAUGHTER
MUSIC BLARES: Chelsea Dagger by The Fratellis
-What are you doing?
I saw the weather and I couldn't not have a party.
-Oh, you're all right.
-Oh, come on, Michelle.
-I've got washing.
-Oh, forget that.
You look like you haven't stopped since you moved in.
Have a break.
Michelle. Johnny's here.
-Here you are.
I've got to go. The barbecue.
Yeah, carry on, don't mind me.
I'll be back as soon as.
Need a hand, Mum?
I THINK I can handle it.
Here, give that to the new woman from next door.
Where is she?
Get in there and show your mother those shapes you were throwing!
Yeah, it was.
Look, Michelle, the fence...
I'm really, really embarrassed.
I honestly really meant to do something about it.
It's one of those things where you just know it needs doing
but you get used to it. So, here - if it's any more...
Oh, no, we weren't expecting that.
Michelle, it was really good of Gary to do it.
I'll be really upset if you don't take it.
-And thank Gary once again for me -
and if it's any more, please, do let me know.
Oh, no, this'll be more than enough.
-So she was OK?
-I was worried...
-She was fine.
-It's too much.
-I know, I told her, but she wouldn't listen.
You should take a tenner around.
I don't think she'd like that.
I think we might need it anyway.
I went in today. They're playing silly beggars.
-Oh, they can -
and they are.
It's the bank, it's their money.
They want a breakdown of all our outgoings.
-Do you remember Steve?
-He's offered me some work.
-Well, that's great. Doing what?
Courier work, out on the road.
-Look, we need to get some money in.
-I've told him I'll do it.
I can still work at getting the business back on its feet.
We both can. It's needs must.
Better put it in your purse.
Oh! No, you don't want that stuff.
Try that instead.
Oh, right. Thanks.
So, how are things? In the house?
-Are you settled in?
Yeah, yeah, I think we have.
-Right, I'll see you.
CARD MACHINE BEEPS
The card's been declined.
I'm sorry, I'm going to have to put some stuff back.
Here y'are, I can sub you.
-How much do you need?
-20... 23, I think.
-Is that going to leave you short?
You'll pay me back.
Yeah, I will, of course.
Do you need a lift?
This is very nice.
Oh, it's going back on Thursday.
I'm just praying we've got enough petrol to get us home.
I've been getting by on fumes.
Oh, well, don't worry.
I don't mind pushing.
-I'm not joking.
-And neither am I.
It was a combination of things in the end.
A bit of a downturn, a couple of customers who went bust.
The bank had been tricky.
They used to roll out the red carpet for us at one time -
and now we have to write down everything that we spend.
We used to live...
-LAUGHS: It was even nicer inside.
-That looks gorgeous.
Yeah, I look back now, not too long ago,
the amount that I used to spend.
I used to have this saying - no point cutting corners.
I spent a fortune - and Gary, he just let me do whatever I wanted.
Even when everything all went wrong,
he still never said anything.
He seems decent.
I mean, he didn't even care about the house, really.
I mean, he liked it, but Gary, he could...
..he could live in a tent.
That's why he's OK here.
Oh, thanks a lot!
Sorry, I... I didn't mean it like that.
No, no, I knew you never.
You would have had to drag me out of that place.
They nearly did!
Oh, he's OK.
He's like me.
In the old house, he used to have his mates over all the time,
you couldn't move for tripping over a teenager.
Probably because we had the room, I suppose.
Sorry, I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging.
Oh, no, you don't.
Since we've been here, he hasn't had anyone over.
I just hope that in time, once the dust settles,
-that everything will go back to normal.
Hey, thanks for the money.
I've been there, Michelle.
You seem to be handling it well, under the circumstances.
Under the circumstances?
Gosh, what am I saying?
My head's all over the place.
I started doing this silver service thing last year.
It's still hard, but it's helped out massively.
What, at, like, functions and things?
Yeah, that sort of thing.
Really? I have always wondered - do they pay good money?
It's good enough.
Mm. A woman in uniform, very nice.
-Callum from next door came round.
He's got some new game, thought Johnny might want to try it out.
He didn't need to be asked twice.
I'll see you.
See you, love.
Hmm! Looks good.
Honestly, Tina, I could cry.
Were they expensive?
It's time to start clearing plates now, ladies.
You want to get yourself a pair of these babies.
Eight quid off the market, and they're like a dream.
The tips were good.
Yeah. I didn't realise it would be so much.
We pool them.
Well, they like to flash the cash.
Well, they did last night.
Tina said that the agency liked me,
so hopefully there'll be more work on the cards.
I think being reliable, turning up, is a big thing to them.
With it being casual work.
If they like the look of you...
I'll have to get going.
I'll get it.
-Is Michelle in?
-I'll see you later.
-Yeah, he's fine.
Hey, let me get that money that I owe you before I forget.
-Oh, you don't have to worry about that now.
-No, I do. Wait there.
It's all there.
Well, I trust you.
I know where you live.
Hey, it feels good to pay off a debt for once.
I had a phone call this morning about a last-minute thing tonight.
-Do you fancy it?
-I put a word in when they said they were short of people.
-I appreciate it.
-Not a problem.
It's been a good night.
Yeah. Here, and it is about to get a whole lot better.
That flashy fella on table 18, he bought a whole bottle of gin,
didn't get to the bottom on it.
Lightweight! I thought we could give him a hand.
Here you are, have some.
Ohh! Gosh, that is strong.
Yeah, but it's the good stuff.
Callum bought me that for Crimbo a few years back.
He got it engraved for me.
"To the best mum ever."
Every do I've been to ever since, I've never had to buy a drink.
Here, have some more.
What's it like to be rich?
Oh, come on, what's it like?
We weren't rich.
That is what rich people always say.
Well, most of the time, you still worry about the same stuff.
Kids, are they happy?
What are you going to cook for tea?
But in all honesty, it's better than being poor.
There was this one time we went on the trip of a lifetime.
-Well, actually, there was a few of those.
-We went to Dubai, California, Los Angeles.
We had cars to take us from door-to-door.
It was fantastic.
Now I'm worrying about whether we're going to have
a roof over our heads tomorrow.
Is there any food in the fridge?
I made a massive fuss about so much stuff
that just really didn't matter.
We had this limo.
It was too cold, the thermostat had broken,
so I kicked off at the guy like it was all his fault.
I sulked for ages. TINA CHUCKLES
I told him I was going to complain to the travel agents.
Gary, he said it didn't matter.
I said he had ruined the start of our holiday.
It didn't matter.
Wow, I haven't done this since...
I don't know, a long time.
Who needs Botox?
I feel 20 years younger sipping gin on the bus with me mate.
They kept us late. It was just one of those nights.
Have you been drinking, love?
-I can smell it.
-Have you been to the pub?
-I haven't been to the pub.
Tina's got one of those hip flasks.
-We had some gin.
-You've been drinking gin?
After we finished. On the bus.
Drinking gin on the bus.
Well, when you say it like that, it doesn't sound great.
No, it doesn't.
MUSIC: Through The Night by Ren Harvieu
I tried that dress on once.
I bet it looked better on you.
Hey, you'll never guess what.
-Last night, I got a £50 tip.
Tina said not to put it in the kitty, that no-one else would.
I wasn't sure, but...
..she said I'd be mad to.
That's a lot of money.
He looked like he could afford it.
-Out the way.
-Are you behind me?
-I want that spinny thing.
I don't know where you are.
This is the next course now. This is four-wheel drive.
-See you in a bit, Mum.
At least I've got the four-wheel drive cars...
I don't want you to go.
-I don't want you to go to work.
-I don't know why.
-Well, we need the money.
-We don't need anything that much.
I knew I shouldn't have told you about that tip.
This hasn't got anything to do with the tip.
-It is about the tip.
-No, it isn't!
Someone gave me £50 because I did a professional job,
they had a good evening.
You know more than anyone how it works, Gary.
You flash the cash, tip the waitress, bid on the auction.
I've seen you do it enough times.
My wife shouldn't have to do all this.
Are you kidding me?
-Coming out with that?
-Well, can you blame me?
You're a gorgeous woman.
-So every time you tipped a waitress is cos you fancied her?
-So you don't trust me?
-I totally trust you.
-Then what is the difference?
The difference is that it's you.
Look, if they want to have their little power trip,
throw away stupid amounts of money, just like you used to,
then I am happy to take it.
Sorry, can you just give us a sec?
I can't help the way that I feel.
Not wanting you to wait on.
Nobody wants to do it, Gary.
Everyone wants to be the one sitting down having a nice time.
-Don't do it, then.
What, 50 quid?
We're in a great big hole.
It's like throwing a stone in a great big black hole.
Don't go. Please.
I'm not feeling very well.
It's just... It's come on really quick.
OK, well, I'll let them know.
She knows you're not ill.
It's not that I don't like her.
Tina's great, but...
Tina's great, but what?
MUSIC: Call You Home by Kelvin Jones
Michelle, give me a call when you get this message.
Dad, she's doing her best.
You shouldn't be listening.
In this house?!
Well, I hope you sort things.
Yeah, so do I.
I'm really sorry, Michelle.
I was wrong to say that you shouldn't go.
It's my job.
Yeah, yeah, I know it is,
and what you're doing, it's helping massively.
I've no right to say this now, but I'm proud of you.
This whole thing, it could've...
It should have killed us.
Oh, there's time yet.
Look, it's been a long day.
If we could afford a doghouse, you'd be in it.
There's some talk of going on somewhere after work tonight.
One of the girls' 50th, I think.
-I'm not sure.
-Oh, come on, it'll be a laugh!
I'm trying to save money.
Oh, look, wherever they're planning on going,
it's not going to break the bank, is it?
Don't feel sorry for him!
He sat there with it all on show
while she's serving him his roast potatoes.
He knew exactly what he was doing -
and his wife was sat next to him
pretending like she hadn't seen anything happen!
I can't believe she served him rotten chicken!
-Did he not notice?
-He was drunk!
Oh... So she got away with it?
This waitress, it was you, right?
I never said that.
-It was you.
-Waitress's honour, I cannot confirm nor deny.
You are bad.
I never said it were me!
It was you. It was so you.
-I just want to say...
-I am having a really good night.
-A very good night.
I really like you.
I really like you.
Good! That is very good.
What's on today?
Terrine - pork, I think.
Lamb, fondant potatoes, green beans.
Oh, and chocolate something for pudding.
-Are you ready for a busy night?
Oh, I was born ready, boss.
Well, it's some fundraising event, an all-women do.
I can't remember which charity it's in aid of.
Well, I hope they're not big eaters, cos I am starving.
Oh, me too!
-I thought it was you.
What are you doing here?
What are YOU doing here?
Well, I saw you out there.
You really... You shouldn't be in the kitchen.
Sorry, I... I just wanted to say hello.
I don't want to get you into trouble.
No, God, it's fine.
I'm... I'm the boss.
It's your company?
-Well, that's brilliant.
It's so good to see you back on your feet again after what happened.
Well, you know. We must get together.
-Where's the pinot?
-Oh, out the back.
I'm surprised you'd employ her!
Well, you've got to take what the agency send you.
-Where do they find them?
-I don't know.
Must be a factory where they build chavs.
So, the boys, we should get them together,
they've not seen each other in ages.
Are you still at the same address?
Sorry, look, I've really got to get on.
I know you must be busy.
I'll be in touch.
Tina, are you OK?
-You've been crying.
I'm absolutely fine.
You heard what she... What I said.
-I didn't mean to...
I've upset you. I'm sorry.
It's late, Michelle.
Hey, I was watching that.
-No, you wasn't.
You can't kid a kidder.
What's the matter, Michelle?
-Has she said something?
-No, she wouldn't.
You made a mistake.
You said you're sorry.
I can't forgive myself.
You can't torture yourself.
Well, I can't help feeling bad.
Everyone makes mistakes.
Even you. You're one of the nicest people I know.
One of the nicest people?!
Not one of the nicest people, THE nicest person.
Tina knows what you're like.
You'll be OK.
It'll be OK.
I'm going to go up.
I'll be up in a minute.
What time are you going to be home?
..128 deliveries' time.
Oh, good luck with that.
I'll get it.
-Is Michelle home?
-Er, yeah, come in.
-How are you?
-Yeah, I'm very well, thank you.
-Michelle, look who I found.
I mean, I knew you'd moved, but you never said where.
I don't usually look this much of a mess.
At least, I don't think I do.
It's taken me ages to track you down.
-Yeah - Jane gave me your address.
Her Harry and your Johnny are friends.
Yeah, they are. I don't think they've seen each other for a while.
-Where is Johnny?
-Probably with Callum.
The boy next door.
He is a nice lad.
I really hope you don't mind me just turning up like this.
No, it's fine.
You must tell Gary that all the boys are really missing him.
It must be hard for him. I saw the uniform.
Oh, no, that's just a temporary thing.
Yeah, we're getting the business back on track.
Yeah, it should all be back to normal soon.
Well, that's great - and you've got the catering company.
Yeah, well, we're not really concentrating on that at the moment.
-But you're doing well?
Well, it's like I say to the children,
the cream will always rise to the top.
You and Gary don't belong in a place like this.
Sorry, you must be wondering why I'm here.
There is a do coming up.
You should come. Cheer yourself up.
I put it in here somewhere...
It's at the golf club.
It's all in a good cause for the old folk.
Can we still call them that these days?!
There'll be loads of people there that you know.
What do you think?
Jackie, why are you here?
Well, I wanted to invite you to the do.
Sorry, I should have said, why are you here now?
You just disappeared, Michelle.
Like you fell off the edge of the world.
Everything was very different for us.
Some people found it hard.
I think people understood, Michelle.
This could happen to anybody - you were just very unlucky.
Yeah, we were. Very unlucky.
Look, everybody knew that it couldn't have been anything
that you or Gary had done.
I mean, nobody in their right minds would believe that, Michelle.
It was just all bad circumstances coming together at the wrong time.
That's what I said - and I really want you to believe
that this could have happened to any one of us.
But it happened to me, and it happened to Johnny and Gary.
I thought you'd appreciate it.
I'd have appreciated it when the business was going under,
when we had to sell the house.
You know the thing about failure?
It's not contagious,
but I'd have never have known that the way the phone calls,
the invitations, just about everything,
went stone-cold quiet the minute that what happened...happened!
The other night when I saw you...
..I was a waitress.
I am a waitress.
Yeah, I was worried about telling people that.
It's not my company...
..and the other waitress, she lives next door.
Her name's Tina. She's a lovely woman, very kind.
She got me the job.
So, thanks for your invitation.
We're busy that night.
I can understand it, Michelle.
I know that things are still raw,
but there will be another one sooner or later, when you're ready.
Yeah. We'll be busy then, as well.
Michelle, I don't want any hassle.
Just listen, please.
I have lost so much over these last few months, and...
..I just...I need to tell you.
..need to say that I have never regretted anything
as much as I regret losing your trust.
Your friendship has been...
..has helped me.
Honestly, everything that I have been through
has been easier because of you.
A job when I really needed one.
I thought you...
I didn't think that we would be friends...
..and I was horrible...
..and I know I don't deserve to have you as a friend...
..after what I said, but I just want to say that...
..you are an amazing person, Tina...
..and I was lucky to have you as a friend.
That's all I have to say.
MUSIC: To Be Without You by Ryan Adams
Are those bags more tired than me?
Affluent Gary and Michelle are forced to downsize when their business goes bust, but Michelle struggles to settle and is reluctant to make friends with new neighbour Tina.
