I said I'd let you know about tonight - well, it's fine.
I'll catch you later.
You're not getting serious with her, are you?
It's early days.
Nicole, we love you so much.
Don't listen to him, Nic, he's messing with your head.
You're not leaving.
She's gonnae grass!
So what's next?
It's a surprise.
I made you some tea an' toast.
'Fraid it's the last of the bread.
Careful, the mug's hot.
Look at the state of me.
Don't worry. I'll get you some clothes.
I need somethin' sweet. Have you seen the chocolates I bought you?
I finished them last night when you fell asleep. Sorry.
Gonnae stop apologising?
Tell you what, I'm feeling rough.
Think I'll get a wash and waken mysel' up a bit.
If Stevie phones, I'll give you a shout.
One, two, three, four!
This bike is heavy, Calum!
Right, here we go.
Right, let's get you sorted.
Mummy's got a lot of things to do today.
Hey, you two.
Hi. He won't go anywhere without that bike.
Just as well I got him this.
You shouldn't have.
You're going to look so cool.
That's the kind professionals wear!
What d'you say to Dan?
You never know, one day, he might wear the yellow jersey.
Doubt it. His grandpa's already bought him his first football top.
I was talking about Le Tour de France.
Och, I've went and left my purse in the house.
Can you keep an eye on him? I'll be back in a sec.
So, what do you reckon?
Is it going to fit? Let's have a look.
How's the wee one?
Growing out his clothes as fast as I can buy them.
He's at that age.
What age - the older they get, the more expensive things are?
-No smoothie for Cal this morning?
-I bought him some bananas.
Trying to get him to eat real fruit for a change.
Good luck with that. Cannae stand the stuff myself.
Unless it's fermented first.
Oh, here, your magazine's in.
D'you know, I've kind of gone off it.
I'll maybe pop in later, see if there's another one I fancy.
C'mon, Cal. You've got to wear it.
You can see he's keen(!)
Unless he wears it, don't let him on his bike.
Why don't you get on yours, eh?
You'd better go.
See you later. You look after Mummy today.
Any more orders?
Give him a break. He's fond of Cal.
-Likes bossing him about, anyway.
-It's called taking an interest.
Anyway, I was wondering, what you up to later?
I'm open to offers.
Dan got me and Cal tickets to go and see a magic show, but he's working, so...
-You're asking me?
-Kinda looks that way, doesn't it?
Aye. How much were these tickets?
They're complimentary. One of Dan's patients.
Just let me know what time you want the taxi. See you later, wee man.
We'll get you at the arcade.
Eh? Going to the magic show with Grandpa Lenny?
Yes! Right, come on, let's get you on this bike.
-Morning, Molly. Seen Michael?
-He's with Leyla.
They'll be going over the files for the Wellman Clinic today.
I mind when it was sick folk that went to the doctor's!
Morning. Give me a second to get organised and I'll be with you.
I can take care of things today.
I'm not leaving you with it all.
It's OK, Dan. Michael'll manage himself.
Just take the day off.
OK. If you feel you've got things covered.
Give me a call if you need any help.
-You off today?
-Aye, Jimmy's on a back shift. So he's taking me shoe shopping.
One of my great joys in life(!)
Could do wi' a pair yourself.
No' this week. Seen Cal's nursery bill? You'd think he was at uni.
I'd watch him more often, darlin', but I'm never away from that bar.
-You a bit short the now?
-I'm all right, Ma.
-You can always leave your digs money till next week.
-It's all right.
That was quick. What about the clinic?
According to Michael, it's all under control.
How's he bearing up?
-Hard to tell. He's burying his head in his work.
Must be torture, just no' knowing where your wee lassie is.
And some folk think they've got problems?
Raymond's helping Murray wi' his mid life crisis! Boys' day out, more like!
Wonder why they never asked you?
-Just by luck, I guess!
-See youse later.
-See you later.
At least it means I can go to the show with you and Cal.
-Unless you've sold my ticket.
-Don't be daft.
But the thing is, I've gone and asked Lenny.
You're off the hook.
Dan doesn't need to work, so I don't need to drag you along.
Or we could get another ticket.
Forget it. Make believe's more up your street.
I'm going to drop my bag home, I'll just say goodbye to Cal.
Hey, I cannae get movin' in there for Cal and his bike.
Listen, could youse keep an eye on him,
and I'll come and pick him up from nursery?
Again? It's no' a creche, Kel.
Course we can. Leave him with me.
I'll look after him. Where are you going?
Just to sign on.
Sign on what?
-The rock and roll. What planet's this guy from?
I've been signing on since before I started here.
-Quite right, darlin'! You get as much off them as you can.
-Don't look at me like that.
I've got bills needing paid.
You cannae rely on someone who's still paying for his missus and her mortgage.
I'm not relying on anybody. I'll get some more work soon.
-Just look after your grandson till I get back.
I'll look after him.
Cal's my son's boy! Not Doctor bleedin' Dan's!
I feel the same way about him as Jimmy does about Madonna.
Do people find it hard to get their heads round that?
Least he is a doctor.
Could be worse, she could've hooked up with some toerag.
That I could deal with. But this guy?
Giving her a hard time for signing on.
-Shall we go and have a ride on the bike?
There we go, Cal.
See, it's all about balance.
The secret is to keep moving.
Right. And remember to use the brakes.
Still no luck wi' the hat, eh?
Must have inherited my sense of style.
Say goodbye to your grandad, Cal, let's get you to nursery.
Don't drive a wedge between me and the boy, you'll regret it.
Is violence your default position?
I lost his father, I ain't losing him.
I'm not doing this in front of Cal.
He's my flesh and blood.
As far as he's concerned, life's a free ride.
-I don't think giving people what they want, when they want, is right.
-Says he who abandoned his family.
What do you know about my family?
Nothing. Just don't confuse it with mine.
What've we got here, Cal?
Watch, son. He'll make you declare it.
Look what we found in Grandad's ear. Maybe that's why he can't hear.
Me and Kelly-Marie are together, Lenny. Get used to it.
Don't push your luck, son.
Come on, Cal.
MUSIC: "Bossa Nova" by Shivaree
# Well, I think I hate you
# Isn't this fun
# You're gonna shoot
# And I, darling, loaded the gun
# I think I'm done
# What train did you step off of anyway?
# I really don't care
# I'm the luckiest girl... #
Y'ever tried kit?
No. And I wouldn't!
You need to relax.
Not that way. Never!
Never say never.
Wish Stevie could phone me, my stupid battery's been dead for days.
C'mon, cheer up. Stevie wouldnae want you being all sad an' that.
I just want to hear his voice.
You will. He'll call, but he's gotta be careful.
If he gets caught with a mobile phone, he's in big trouble.
When will he be able to use it?
Best time's when he's dubbed up.
Locked in his cell.
No wonder the bold-boy fell for you.
You're beautiful, know that?
I don't feel very beautiful.
You're right into him, eh?
Don't sweat it.
It's up to me to take care of you till he's out.
# I'll stand hard like a tree
# Yeah, you make me sick
# You red razor nick, get your hot hands off of me... #
Charlie! What're you doing down there?
Something bad's happened.
The cellar's flooded.
Skint. I need to get hold of some dough.
Wish I could help you, but I think I've got about 20p.
That'll no' get us far.
Nice watch. Must be worth a few quid.
No' fancy pawning it, no?
Just for a coupla days, till I get my giro.
My dad got me it for Christmas.
Thought you hated him?
I do! But still...
Nae sweat, sweetheart.
I'll think of somethin' else.
I'm sorry, Cammy.
What did I say about apologisin'?
FRONT DOOR CLOSES
Angie, is that you?
No' much. I got your call.
I wanted you to meet Nicole,
Stevie's bird. Angie's a very good mate of mine.
-You're just in time
-to keep Nicole company while I nip out for a bit.
-Where you going?
Just taking a walk up town.
Gonnae put the kettle on for Angie while I have a wee word with her?
Where have you been?
I've been busy. Have you got cash for me?
Listen, Cammy... it's dead out there, the now.
See, you better not be lying to me.
I'd never do that, I swear, I...
Shut up an' listen. Whatever happens, she stays indoors, right?
-Cos her coupon's all over the papers, that's why!
-Thought she was Stevie's bird?
-Leave the thinking to me, right?
-What are you playin' at?
-I've got plans for her.
What kinda plans?
-And she knows this?
-That's where you come in.
-It'll not change anything between us, I promise.
I said no!
Listen, it's just you and me. You know that, don't you?
It better be.
She'll bring in a nice few quid, then you'll get your cut.
Do not mess me about on this, or I swear...
And that's another promise.
-D'you take sugar, Angie?
Be good, you two.
There's nothing better than shopping for shoes.
What is it about women and shoes?
Listen, I could maybe nip in for a pint while you hit the shops.
-MOBILE PHONE RINGS
What is it now? Never a minute's peace!
OK, OK, I'm coming.
Oh, aye. Trouble at mill?
The pub cellar's flooded!
That's the day ruined, eh? Never rains but it pours.
Don't act smart, doesnae suit you.
Raymond should be dealing with his own crisis, no' helping Murray with his.
And that Charlie's no' got the brains he was born with.
-It's maybe not his fault.
-It's always his fault, you're too soft.
Aye, well, that comes from hanging about with you and Lenny.
Uh-huh. Right, OK.
Well, that'll need to do. See you when you get here.
-Don't tell me. The plumber's on another job the now.
Same old story. He'll get here when he can.
-Could you look after things here for me?
-It's my day off!
I know. I would, but I've got a meeting I need to be at.
-On you go.
-No, on you go!
-What about they two?
-You really need to ask?
-Look, the bar's all right. But I'm scared to put the power on in the cellar.
-On you go.
-Mind, my meter's running.
Right, you go down and check the fuse-boxes, eh?
I'm no' an electrician.
Once the pumps are working, we can open. You might get a pint!
-I could have a look, right enough.
-Send Annie up and tell her to give me a hand.
Hey. Seen Dan?
Think he was taking Cal back to nursery.
Look, about before, I'm sorry if I came across like an idiot.
Forget it. You're a businessman, not a babysitter.
I think Lenny'd take that job. He thinks the sun rises an' sets on that boy of yours.
Sometimes I feel like a referee between him and Dan.
Lenny likes to take over.
Lenny? A control freak? No(!)
I just wish he'd let go a bit.
He's lost the rest of his family.
You never know, maybe he's frightened.
It's not as crazy as it sounds.
He is human.
Now I feel guilty.
I said he couldnae come to the show cos Dan's coming.
Och, I wouldnae worry about it. He's not missing much.
He's made that many folk disappear, he could join the Magic Circle.
-Can I help you?
-Actually, I'm looking for Kelly-Marie Adams.
Nice place. Good location. Plenty passing trade?
Not bad, aye.
-You work here, is that right?
-Who wants to know?
I take it you're the owner.
Let's try again. Who wants to know?
Lana Devlin. I'm a benefit fraud investigator.
You're from the Dole?
Call it what you like, Miss Adams.
But I've reason to believe you may have been submitting false claims.
What? Want your skirt back?
You know, I don't know where you got your info, but there's been some mistake.
We received word advising us that you work here while signing on for unemployment benefit.
-Somebody called you this morning?
-Some curtain twitcher wi' nothing better to do.
I need to ask you a few questions, but first, I must caution you that anything you say will be taken down
-and may be used in evidence.
-She's got nothing to say.
-That's not for you to decide.
-My solicitor'll deal with this.
-It's up to Miss Adams whether she wishes legal representation.
-Yeah, well, she does.
Your interruptions could be construed as obstruction, Mr...
Mr will do fine for now.
I should advise, if you choose to co-operate at this stage, the court tend to take
-a more lenient view.
-The court?! But I'm only...
Confession's good for the soul, but you don't have one.
Very well. Her benefits will be stopped
until a full investigation has been carried out.
I require you to attend for formal interview this afternoon.
That's not giving her much notice.
Should you fail to attend, I'll apply for a warrant.
Benefit fraud is a serious crime.
What kinda lowlife's gonnae do that, eh? An' to a single mother?
Listen, stop worrying. Everything's gonnae be all right.
What am I gonnae say to Dan?
Never mind him. It's you an' Cal that matter.
Suppose I'd better go an' tell my ma', before someone else does.
Bad news travels at the speed of light here.
Chin up. My brief's the best in the business.
I'll come and get you once I've talked to him OK?
-Thanks, Lenny. I appreciate it.
I'm taking care of this.
Hamish. It's Lenny.
Yeah, we need to meet.
I don't care! It's a family matter.
OK, just clear your diary an' call me, OK?
-You'd need Noah's ark down there.
-So we cannae open the pub yet?
Be tomorrow before any spark goes near that fuse box.
-When's the plumber coming with that pump?
-How should I know?!
-It's a sore point.
-Thought Kelly-Marie'd be here. Wonder what's keeping her.
-Be a queue at the broo.
I had no idea she was struggling.
A single mum struggling? In this day and age? Who'd have thought?
-Thought you and Kelly were taking Cal out today?
-So did I.
-Sorry I'm late.
-We can talk later.
Tell me what's wrong.
-Somebody stuck me into the social.
Can you hear yourselves?
Lenny told me not to say anything till I've spoken to his lawyer.
Great, so now you're going to get dragged through the courts.
-They want to interview me this afternoon.
-Interrogate, more like!
-'Least Lenny was fast on his feet.
-That man came out his mammy running.
-Might have known he'd be involved.
-He's only trying to help.
-I would've helped if you'd asked.
Well, it's a bit late for that now!
-You'd think this was my fault the way you're going on!
-Am I embarrassing you?
-I bet this wouldn't have happened to Katie.
-For goodness sake.
-I'm sorry I'm not up to your usual standard.
-I didn't say that!
-It's a wonder you can bear to be seen with me.
-My lawyer'll come and get you about half one.
Don't thank me yet, not until I find out who stuck you in.
We're late for the show now. Can we calm down and talk?
-I need to get Cal from nursery.
-I'll get him.
He can play on the puggies with his grandad.
Better check with Dan here first, cos Cal's not 18 yet!
How long you known Cammy?
Not long. You?
We go way, way back.
I never knew my da', and then when my ma' OD'd, I got put into care.
Cammy's always been there for me.
I got moved about a lot. Then when I hit 16,
I got left to stand on my own two feet.
But if you didn't have any family, what did you do?
Soon as I could, I started signing on,
moved into a hostel an' that's when I met Cammy.
He's a couple of years older than me,
so I suppose I sorta feel safe with him about.
That's how I feel with Stevie.
I met him once, he was dead nice.
-Aye, Cammy introduced us at a party.
You guys pretty serious?
Yeah, we were saving up to get our own place.
Wee joint account and everything?
I kept telling him we should get one of them,
-but he was just keeping the money at his flat.
-Where was that?
The Tall Ship in Shieldinch, you know it?
-He lived above there.
-DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES
Hey-hey! Look what I've got, ladies!
-Stevie phoned me when I was out.
I should've been there. How is he?
Did he mention me?
You kidding? He's missing you hunners.
-Really, he said that? Honest?
-Cross my heart.
Any other messages?
He loves you an' cannae wait till he gets out,
so youse can be together.
I love him, too. When can we go visit him?
Soon, sweetheart. Soon.
-Anyway, he told me to arrange something.
Wants me to get a few folk together for a bit of a party.
Thought it might cheer you up.
Sounds like a brilliant idea.
I managed to get hold of this.
You cannae call it designer, but there's some no' bad clobber there.
-Where d'you get it?
What am I thinking?
Angie...have you got something she can wear?
Course. Think I've got some stuff in my bag over there.
-Thanks. Can't wait to get out of this.
So that's why you wanted me to bring my stuff over?
Go and give her a hand.
You think I'm behaving like a stuck-up snob.
Sorry, was I meant to disagree?
-It's only because I care.
-Then why keep saying, "I told you so?"
Sort out your own life before preaching to me.
-You were asking for trouble and you know it.
-This is where you tell me honesty's the best policy?
-In my book, loyalty comes first.
-Hooray for Grandad Lenny.
-At least he doesn't lecture me, and he's already phoned a lawyer.
-He doesn't do favours for nothing.
-He's probably worried he'd get caught for employing you.
When Lenny says he cares, he proves it. He knows what commitment means!
Don't take too long, mate, and make sure you bring some gear.
-I've something better than cash, but it's first come, first served.
Right, I'll see you soon.
-She looks amazin'.
-I look like a tart.
If you've got it, flaunt it.
-I'm falling out it. It's too short.
-There's no such thing.
I don't understand why dressing like a slapper's going to make Stevie happy?
You look brilliant. Stevie's proud of you,
an' I don't blame him. Eh, Angie?
Course. She's a natural.
What were you saying about having something better than cash?
Just having a laugh wi' the boys.
Take a swig and chill out.
-Could be a coincidence.
-When you hear hooves, you look for horses.
Right, that's me away.
What were you two whispering about?
-If we wanted folk to know that, we wouldnae be whisperin'.
-Just this carry on, wi' your grand-daughter.
Yon's diabolical. An' her tryin' to make ends meet.
It's gettin' so you cannae earn a crust, so it is.
-What gets me is someone went out their way to put her name in.
-Could've been anybody.
Who round here's ever had a pull for working on the side?
True. No' as if she's the only one trying to make a bit extra.
Aye, you get some old folks trying to pad out their benefits,
with doing some cleaning or whatever comes their way. I'm just sayin', why Kelly-Marie?
An' why today?
You think that somebody's got it in for the lassie?
Or they could be trying to manipulate her. Make sure she doesn't embarrass them,
due to their position.
-I'm saying nothing.
Could be a random grass.
But as far as I'm concerned, there's not too many suspects.
Does he mean the doctor?
Sounds like it.
So did you actually hear Lenny say it was him?
No' exactly, but, well, that's what I took him to mean.
Now we're gettin' somewhere.
He cannae stand Dan. That's why he's always bad mouthin' him!
You'd blame Lenny for the Boer war. Remember, Dan's from the other side of the tracks.
What you gettin' at?
He's used to goin' out with birds wi' money,
no' single mums that draw the dole and work on the side.
You trying to say that Kelly-Marie's not good enough for him?
-That Cal couldnae be a doctor one day?
-Don't put words in my mouth.
-I'm only saying what Lenny said!
-Am I interrupting something?
-Don't be daft.
-No, we were just discussing what Lenny was saying.
-About Dan grassing you to the dole.
-He'd never do that.
-I'm trying to help, but if you don't want to face facts...
-Come on, Kel, wake up.
He already bosses Cal about like he's his own son.
-Is that what's bothering you?
-He's my grandson, Ewan's boy. You're settling for second best.
Don't be daft.
Anyway, even if you were right,
-why would Dan want to get me into trouble?
-Because he wants you to be dependant on him.
You're saying he stuck me into the social so I'd turn to him?
That's how it stacks up to me.
He's looking for a ready-made family - you're it.
Trust me on this, Kelly.
Some men, they can be very controlling.
He's not like that. I'm sure of it.
But I'll be keeping my eye on the good doctor till I'm sure.
Wish they'd get a move on.
You look good.
Mind you, you would look good in a bin bag.
-What're you doing?
-You not know? Me an' Stevie share an' share alike.
HE SCOFFS Get a grip! I was kiddin' on.
You really think I'd lay a finger on my best mate's bird? Do you?
Nobody else will while I'm taking care of you.
Still, wouldnae hurt if you flirted a bit.
-Got friendly wi' a few of the boys.
-What d'you mean?
Thing is, Nicole, I need to score. I've got to get some gear off them.
So what am I meant to do?
Chat them up. Act like they're maybe in wi' a chance.
You mean make it look like I'm going to sleep with them?
Just offer them the promised land, that's all.
No way! I've got a boyfriend!
Come on, Nicole, for me, eh?
Her name's Lara Devlin. That's her there.
-I should be coming as well.
-We've been over this. They won't allow it.
-You could be called as a witness in the case.
-There better no' be any case.
I want this straightened out today.
There's my statement and my books for the business.
-Be careful. The ink's still wet.
Look after her, Hamish.
-You know how much her and the wee man mean to me.
-Hold the fort for us whilst I take him over to see Kelly-Marie.
Let's go meet your client.
-Good luck with that mob.
-Nae problem with Hamish here.
What are you acting so worried for?
It's not like you're facing a firing squad.
I've been looking for you. About earlier, can we talk?
..you met my lawyer?
Ah, the damsel in distress. Good to see you again.
You let Hamish handle everything. Unless he tells you otherwise.
-Right, time to go. I'll walk you out.
-Not now, Dan!
-What was that about?
-Better talking to her.
Yeah. That was going well. Spit it out, Gabe.
Thing is, people have got it in their heads that you dobbed her into the social.
That's ridiculous. You think I'm capable of that?
-You bet the Christmas Club money.
-I paid it back.
You said capable, Dan. Anyway, it's not me you should be asking.
The person I should be asking is about to be interviewed for fraud!
Now that's the kind of attitude that does you no favours.
You believe this rubbish, don't you?
So why come across as Mr Judgemental, then?
-I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't!
-This isn't about you!
It's starting to feel like it!
The great Daniello. One phone call and your dole money disappears.
I hear someone's starting to spread rumours about me.
-Better be careful, eh? Might be wearing a wire.
-Think this is funny?
No, I don't find grasses funny.
'Specially when it involves my family.
-Why don't you leave while you're still in one piece?
-Beat me up if you think it'll achieve anything.
-Might keep your mouth shut.
-I've proved I can do that already.
Where the hell've they got to?
You know that lot, they'll probably no' get here till the pub's shut.
I cannae wait that long. I'm getting strung out as it is.
Well, the cupboard's bare, in't it? We're all brassic.
Hey, Nicole, what about that money Stevie and you stashed?
Stevie and Nicole saved some cash before Stevie got nicked.
How come you didn't mention this earlier?
I didn't think about it. I just wanted to forget the place.
Where is it?
-He planked it in a flat above some pub.
The Tall Ship, in Shieldinch. But it's too late to get it now.
Aye, aye, you're right.
Never mind. Somethin'll turn up.
-I'm gonnae nip out, see what's taking the boys so long.
-About time we got this party started.
-What if Stevie phones you?
Don't worry, I'll tell him you still love him.
You two sit tight, till I get back. Angie...
..take care of her.
Hey, how was the magician?
Molly said you were going.
-She say anything else?
-Not that I was listening to.
No. Just wondered if Michael needed a hand.
He wouldn't thank you for it.
Sorry I was slow on the uptake. Next time, hit me with a hammer.
Mr Wilson, see you in six months.
-I said I could handle things here.
-I was at a loose end.
Don't suppose you've heard anything?
Still, they say no news is good news. You can get away too, love.
-Don't be silly.
-Seriously. I can deal with it.
I'll finish this filing off first.
-How does he hold it together?
-He has his own way of coping.
Can't be easy for you either.
It's like walking a tight-rope.
It's hard for an outsider to fit into any family, especially a close one. But...
maybe you understand that.
If I didn't, I'm beginning to. Any advice?
In the end, you've got to pick your side and show your commitment.
Not just talk about it.
That's the second time I've heard that word today.
I suppose it comes down to how much you want to be with someone.
Yeah, I suppose it does.
-You sure you don't want a drink?
-No, no, thanks.
You said you ran away, but you never said why.
-It was nothing.
-Nobody leaves home for nothin'.
-Must've mattered to make you do a runner.
My stepmum and my uncle were... I don't want to talk about it.
I think I can guess.
Cammy should've left his phone. Stevie could phone any minute.
Doubt it. He's probably dubbed up by now.
Cammy said that was the best time.
You've heard them wrong.
Stevie cannae phone till rec, even then he'll need cards.
-No, I don't mean the prison phone, I mean his mobile.
Yeah, Cammy smuggled one in, so he could get messages to me.
Dunno how. He's no been near the nick since Stevie got sentenced.
He told me that Stevie wanted me to stay with him.
That's why I'm here.
D'you think Cammy's lying to me?
No, course not.
Then why say he got Stevie a phone?
He'll be tryin' to get him one, but doesn't want you to worry.
You can trust Cammy. He knows the position you're in.
That's why he wants to take care of you.
Y'know, same way he does with me.
He thinks we could have a good thing goin' here...
-Let me go!
Let me go! I don't want to be here!
You're goin' nowhere!
-I'll tell him, I know he's lying.
If he finds out you told me there was no mobile, he'll..
He'll what? Kick the crap out of me? Blacken my eyes?
I'm used to wearing sunglasses in winter.
I only came here, because I wanted to be with Stevie.
Please, Angie. Please!
No, I can't, Cammy'd go crazy.
Cammy lied to me, why shouldn't he lie to you?
-What are you on about?
-Suppose I do stay,
how long will it be, before they want the "young bird",
the one that's not been round the block an' back?
Cammy wants me here cos you're past it.
Shut your mouth, ya wee cow!
Think about it. How long will you last with me here?
A month? Two?
I said, go!
What about you? Are you gonnae go?
Does it matter? Anywhere but here!
Cammy looks after me.
MUSIC: "I'll Be Your Mirror" by The Velvet Underground
-Thanks for today. I owe you.
-Double time should cover it. Be less than what he's charging.
Can it get any worse? Where's Charlie?
He'll be back in a minute. He's just putting some barrels back in the cellar.
Here he comes. The creature from the black lagoon.
-Why am I getting it in the neck?
-Cos you go about in a daze.
You wouldnae know if it was New Year, New York or New City Road.
In silence, as usual.
He sent me home. Seems he can manage things by himself.
He just closes up and shuts everyone else out.
He's been like that since we were kids.
If we got sent to our room for playing up,
he'd be lying on the bed, starin' at the ceiling,
I'd be bangin' on the door, trying to get out.
So, nothing's changed much.
He's still putting on his business as usual face. Even to me.
Only because he's scared people will find out how he's really feeling.
Would that be so bad?
It'd be a mortal sin to our Mick. You know he needs to be in control.
It's his way of keeping on top of things, but when he cracks...
he cracks big time.
I really don't know what to say to him.
There's nothing you can say.
You just need to let him cope with it in his own way.
Hey, come here.
We shouldn't be doing this.
I can't. Not here. Not now.
Nothing's changed between us.
It's not us that I'm worried about.
We're both betraying him.
You think I like lying to my own brother?
We're still doing it though, aren't we?
So what do you want to do, stop?
-Forget about being together.
-I'm not saying that.
Then what are you saying?
Michael's going through hell. I just...
-I don't want this to add to...
Another hoax call.
'Hello? Who is this?'
That's twice that's happened.
Forget about it. It'll just be kids, messing about.
What if it's not? Suppose someone knows what we're...
Nobody knows anything.
Every time the phone rings I think it might be Nicole.
Look you've got to stop beating yourself up about it.
It's not like we drove her out. At least, you and me didn't.
Your saying Michael did?
No. But he can be pretty strict with her.
She's his daughter. He loves her.
Maybe she felt she couldn't breathe.
You can't honestly be blaming Michael for her leaving?
I'm not blaming anyone.
But he hides his feelings, that's why folk think that he doesn't have any.
How can you say that?
Because it's true and you know it, or else me and you wouldn't be here.
Good afternoon, Mister?
Johnston. Hamish Johnston. And this is my client, Miss Adams.
My colleague, Mr Chase. He'll be sitting in on the interview.
Sit down, we'll get started.
So you say Mr Murdoch accepts your client helps out
in his amusement arcade, albeit on a part-time basis?
That's correct, yes.
Due to information received, and after checking our records,
we believe she's currently claiming full unemployment benefit.
Is that also correct?
Yes. Yes, that's right.
In fact, if I'm not mistaken, you signed on this morning.
Yes, that's right too.
You're aware it's an offence to claim that benefit whilst working?
Only, of course, if she is.
She admits to signing on and Mr Murdoch says she works for him.
No. He said she helps out.
If I can just make this matter clear, my client is the mother
of Mr Murdoch's grandson and she covers for him occasionally.
So she's not a member of staff?
You mean he pays her in cash?
That would be illegal, wouldn't it?
Then you're saying she's eligible for work?
As you'll know, the way things are at present work-wise...
You do realise it's an offence to give false information?
Mr Murdoch's evidence is all here in this statement.
I've also got a copy of the company accounts.
Feel free to look them over, but you'll find no record
of my client ever receiving any payment at all.
So, unless you've got anything further?
-They couldn't prove I was working. Thanks, Lenny.
I don't know what I'd have done with out you.
No problem, but if I was you, I'd maybe body swerve the brew for a while.
-My sentiments exactly.
-Don't worry. I'll not be going back there.
It's more hassle than it's worth.
-Right, I think we could all do with a drink.
-I'll get them.
-Not for me thanks, I'm driving.
-Get him a water.
With your statement, it was a walk in the park.
Mind you, I'd keep my eyes open.
Somebody around here's been telling tales.
It doesn't make sense.
The damsel's got to be in distress, before she can be rescued.
Machiavelli could take notes.
MUSIC: "Star Witness" by Neko Case
You've both done a great job today. Eileen better be grateful.
-Right, we better open this bar up.
-But we can't switch the pumps on.
We've got enough spirits and bottled beer.
In fact, I think we all deserve a drink.
You're only an orange juice by the way. What do you fancy?
A wee gin and bitter lemon.
Don't scream, understand? SHE WHIMPERS
-Where's the money?
-Stevie's cash! Where is it?!
Don't mess me about.
He did leave some money, but it was put in the bank.
-If you're lying to me...
-I wouldn't. I swear!
-Where's the safe?
-We haven't got one.
I'm warning you. Don't think I'll not use this.
T-T-There's a strong-box in the bar.
-This better not be a waste of my time.
-I wouldn't do that.
Good, cos you'd be amazed what I'd do for a couple of quid.
The two of us are goin' for a wee walk. Ladies first.
I thought Eileen would've been down by now.
Don't worry. She'll no' be long, now we're finished.
We'd better bank last night's takings.
Do as he says.
All right. How did you get on?
-Thanks to Lenny, they're not taking things any further.
Look, we need to talk.
Do you not think you've done enough talking for the one day?
Come on, let's get a drink.
Don't think about following me, right?
Get away from the door!
Let him go. He'll no' be hard to find.
He knows Stevie!
You all right?
-Just get after him!
THEY ALL TALK AT ONCE
-Call an ambulance.
-No, no ambulance.
When I need to rig a jury I'll ask your advice,
-but this is my field and you're going to hospital.
-Is he OK?
He'll be fine, if he behaves himself.
Look, I'm sorry, about before.
I got myself into a mess and took it out on you.
Forget it. I was an idiot.
No, you weren't. I shouldn't have said what I did.
No. You were right.
I need to start thinking about the future.
I'm going to speak my lawyer,
tell him to go ahead with the divorce.
I need to put the past in the past.
Concentrate on the now.
-I've lost him.
-There's always next time.
He could be anywhere.
Scum soon floats to the top again.
Maybe, but if she got involved with somebody like him...
God knows what could happen to her.
MUSIC: "At Last" by Etta James
# At last
# My love has come along
# My lonely days are over
# And life is like a song
# Ooh, yeah, yeah
# At last
# The skies above are blue
# My heart was wrapped up in clover
# The night I looked at you
# I found a dream
# That I could speak to
# A dream that I can call my own
# I found a thrill
# To rest my cheek to
# A thrill that I have never known... #
Didn't take you long to find a new mate, did it?
Let's hope she doesn't let you down the way she did Nicole.
Know what your problem is? You've got a big mouth.
I'm not doing time for you and that wee bitch.
Junkie boyfriends and going on the pill?
I was helping her make her own choices.
Well done, Leyla.
Not only is it my fault that she's gone, now you're telling me that I don't care.
Well, it's not as if she's yours.
