The For Sale sign's going up today.
I can't believe you're making us homeless on her 18th.
Let us stay until I find somewhere else around here.
What if I give you six months, then we can take it from there?
You never got the house.
I'm really sorry.
I would rather burn the place down than sell it to him.
Whether you like it or not, I'm here.
I'm not going anywhere.
I get it. Don't commit, don't get hurt.
But others might.
That's not bad.
That your idea of respectable?
Looks a bit "where there's blame, there's a claim".
Can it, the two of yous!
It's true what they say, you can't buy class.
They also say you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.
Oh, now I've heard everything -
someone like you quoting Barack Obama.
Ah well, I like his views on gun control.
How's your political career going these days?
I still have connections. Council. Courts. Police.
Oh, still pally with wee Craig, are you?
Her and DI Donald go way back, if you get my drift.
Eugh, there's a mental image I could live without.
I keep forgetting you know each other!
He was your arresting officer when you got sent down, wasn't he?
Doesn't make him Sherlock - I basically confessed.
Still, you were his "collar" - is that the expression?
Yeah, well, we thought we might as well throw the guy a bone.
Done wonders for his self-esteem. He was bullied as a child, I think.
Is that the ginger thing, aye?
And now you're the bullies - throwing your weight around,
trying to kick people out their homes.
You know, you're just annoyed cos we beat you to that deal.
No, I'm annoyed because I despise the lot of you, and everything you stand for.
That's nice(!) Did you want something specific or are you just passing?
We're very busy.
Busy doing what?
That, literally, is none of your business.
Mm, no, I'm a concerned citizen.
And with a convicted criminal in the neighbourhood,
I should really be seeking reassurance from our local constabulary.
You don't need to worry about Amber. She is fully rehabilitated.
That's right. I'm living proof the system works.
Good, good, because under the terms of your release,
it wouldn't take much for "the system" to bang you up again.
Good use of your time, is this, harassing my daughter?
I've had worse starts to the day.
Someone should spike her HRT medication.
Don't let her get to you.
Yeah, you're fine, darling. Just ignore her.
I'm going to pick up some breakfast.
Can't build empires on empty stomachs, can we?
Mum, where's the red paint?
I don't know, doll. Has your brother got it?
Away upstairs and ask him.
Is there any chance of a bit of quiet?
Just you concentrate on your studies, hen. I've got all this sorted.
Oh, really? The Murdochs own this place now.
Doesn't mean they own us. I was talking to one of my fellow activists about it...
Nose ring girl, or dreadlocks guy?
Dreads. This is social cleansing.
They can't just chuck us out, not if we dig our heels in.
I don't want to dig my heels in. Not now. Not this week.
I just...want to concentrate.
I know you do, doll.
Just you focus on passing that exam and getting into uni.
I'll deal with Lenny Murdoch!
I bet she's on the phone to him already.
So what? Let her whisper all the sweet nothings she wants.
She's right, though - it won't take much to get me on breach of licence.
And I'm not going to spend another minute of my life behind bars.
I won't let that happen, OK? I swear.
We've nothing to hide.
Dad, I'm not being funny, but you've always got something to hide.
Maybe, aye, OK, but you'll not be getting involved, OK?
You're going nowhere near anything dodgy.
OK. Between the taxi firm and the club,
you've more than enough to keep you occupied.
I don't want to be "occupied". I want to be challenged.
I need to prove myself.
Yeah, well, leave the challenges to me and Alex, eh?
Well, if I can't be trusted with anything serious... That's not what I said.
Why don't you buy me a little clothes shop again?
Let the girl play dress up.
Amber, there will be more than enough work to go around.
Then give me some. Real work.
Give me one of these.
We're building a portfolio of 25 houses.
Well, one less won't make any difference, will it...
Extra shot in there. Should put a spring in your step.
My step's just fine, but I appreciate the thought.
Morning. I can come back if you're too busy?
No. Alex is good to go.
Pastries...to die for.
All right, don't give us that nanny state stuff, just cos you're on a diet!
I am not on a diet!
Eating healthily is not "on a diet".
Avoiding cakes for breakfast is not "on a diet".
All right. I didn't mean to imply that you needed...
Do you know what, I'm going to shut up now.
Listen, I'll get the door for you. Two seconds, Annie...
Psst! Are you alone?
Are. You. Alone?
Who did you think was going to be here?
Oh! You hooked up last night!
I thought I heard you talking to someone when you came in.
Did we wake you? I'm sorry.
No, no, you're fine.
Some of us don't need as much beauty sleep as others.
And from the looks of the bags under your eyes,
you didn't get much last night.
Sleep, that is.
Looks like you might need this more than me.
Ugh, thank you!
So he was hot?
God, yeah. Although in a couple of months,
I'm gonna be like Julia Roberts in "Eat, Pray, Love".
Going to travel the world, learn things about myself I never knew existed.
Well... What was his name?
What was his name?
Whatever it was, we both knew it was nothing more than a hook up, so...
OK, well, it's never happened to me personally, obviously -
but I have always thought you might be left feeling a bit...
..used. You know, when you wake up and they've legged it.
Right now, I'm happy to use and be used.
Fair enough. I wish for things to be so simple.
What was his name?
You're such an awesome big brother.
What are you after?
Oh, I think I've got everything I want. Pretty much.
Am I missing something?
Thriving cab business, club almost ready for relaunch,
a property portfolio...
A lot can happen when a guy nips out for a coffee, eh?
You're not going to spit the dummy out, are you? You've probably had enough of that already.
And it is only one house.
Oh, I'm gonna go to Chrome later.
Time to crack the whip, you can be on chauffeur duty.
Amber, gie it a by, will you?
I'm only teasing. He likes it.
Yeah? Well, it's getting on my nerves.
He knows the property game.
I learn fast.
You'd learn faster if you kept your mouth shut and your ears open. Can it, the two of yous, all right?
I'm beginning to have second thoughts already!
I can do this.
Yeah? Prove it!
Sort this McLean thing. Get that house cleared and turning a profit.
PDQ. You do that... You're in on it all.
White Dee and her brood? Piece of cake.
I have brought you a couple of potential customers.
Have they ever done any sort of fitness training before?
Never judge a book by its cover, dear boy -
Hamish there was Scottish Coal Carrying Champion four years running. 1966 till 1970.
There's a couple of people wanting to talk to you about becoming clients.
Well, you can deal with it.
I'm a personal trainer.
Or are you just not good at dealing with stuff?
OK, no bother.
So, two new clients?
Dear lad, do you think I'd be stalking you for just two clients?
No, no, no! This lady and gentleman represent the Divine Interventions.
A leisure club for over 65s. They have over 300 members.
And all potential clients.
And growing fast.
Now, all I ask for in return as a finder's fee is free access to
all your facilities and the odd complimentary protein shake?
Why not just pay for a membership and save yourself the trouble?
This is serious money. Serious.
I've been frugal.
I'd no idea.
To be honest with you, neither did I.
Remind me never to play Monopoly with you!
I'm mainly a Cluedo man.
Is this all clean?
A couple of trips to the laundry, but aye.
Legit cash bankrolling Murdoch Enterprises -
every penny from now on, legit too.
That's what I want.
Good. I do know the odd tax loophole...
OK, then, let's not be unreasonable, eh?
Right, we done?
How much say does Amber get in all this?
Working with these kind of numbers?
Amber's got her wee doll's house to play with.
She'll be happy with that.
You run all the major deals by me, apart from that, get on with it.
What are you two plotting now?
Oh, the joy of business planning, cash-flowing - all the good stuff.
It's a minefield.
Well, it's obviously man's work, so I'll just run along.
Do you think she heard us?
How can you be so sure?
Cos she'd be wearing our family jewels as earrings.
My favourite client, how are you?
I was in a meeting, I didn't get your message.
No, no, no - we do not settle.
I'll call you back.
Have we met?
I think I would have remembered.
Me too, only for very different reasons.
Nice place. Are you one of the enterprising Murdochs?
Why, do you have an amazing, once in a lifetime, can't fail,
investment opportunity for me?
Oh, I'm not a salesman, I'm a lawyer.
I'm not sure if that's one rung up or down.
I take my job very seriously. The law is a vocation, really.
Well, let me leave you to follow your calling.
Yeah, I'm sure we'll bump into each other again soon.
Hey. What you doing here?
Eh... I've got an interview with the landlady, Eileen Donachie.
No way! For the new manager's job?
I knew she was seeing someone, I never knew it was you! That's amazing!
I thought you were running some swanky cocktail bar up the West End?
I was but, erm, Bruce and I split up, so...
Oh, Gary, I'm sorry.
No, no, it's cool. It was my decision.
And it gave me a chance to sort of re-evaluate what I'm doing
with my life, you know?
Well, what brings you here?
It's for Jenny. It's such a crucial time for a kid her age.
She needs to be focusing on her future, her needs.
I'll do the rest.
Assuming I can get the job, of course.
You'll get it! You're more than qualified. Jenny'll be thrilled.
I hope so.
Eileen's running a wee bit late. So she needs to push the interview back by an hour.
Oh, thank God. It'll give me a chance to shift this hangover.
Don't suppose I could grab a coconut water?
In here?! You kidding? I can do you a tap water?
Big night last night?
It wasn't supposed to be, but...
..I met a guy and...
You woke up in somebody else's bed! You don't waste any time!
So much for a new leaf. I'm supposed to be here for my daughter.
Give yourself a break! So you going to see him again?
No, not at all. He's cute.
But I've just got one man out my life.
And I really do want to give Jenny my full attention, you know?
Well. His loss, whoever he is.
I know, I know I can't just...
Craig, I am not asking you to harass anybody,
but this is Lenny Murdoch we're talking about here,
his entire life could count as "evidence of criminal activity".
How did you get on?
So he's on our side then, DI Donald?
Well, he can't over-commit but basically, yes.
Did you want something or...?
There's a guy here to see you.
He wouldn't give his full name.
Eileen's always just called me Dev. How are you, councillor?
All the better for seeing you! Now he IS allowed to over-commit!
You're going to help my sister?
Any way I can. Friend of the People, Enemy of the State.
What are you doing here?
The door was open.
Mum, please, can you just talk this through...
There's nothing to talk about. Get her out my house.
I'm sorry, your house?
You said you'd be reasonable.
I'm not the one brandishing a hammer.
I'm not the one just out of prison for shooting a guy dead.
Oh, Miss McLean,
that was a long time ago under a very unique set of circumstances.
I came to give you this. It's a notice to quit.
Nothing we weren't expecting, darlin'.
Textbook landlord intimidation tactics.
It's all part of the process and conforms to all legal requirements.
We've still got rights.
Yes, you do. And that's why we're giving you four weeks to find somewhere else.
We don't want to find somewhere else!
How is my daughter meant to study for the uni on a park bench?
My kids are NOT going onto the streets again!
I'm sorry. Really, I am.
But this was purely a business decision.
We believe that we could refurbish this place
and attract tenants prepared to pay considerably more than you're able.
Gentrification, they call it.
Pricing salt of the earth folk out of anywhere decent.
Consider this notice served.
Get her out of here.
Mum.... GET HER OUT!
I can find my own way, thanks.
Aye, all the way back to Daddy. Tell him we're not budging.
Guys, guys, you need to secure that properly.
Hammer some tacks into the windowsill.
Hello again, my inquisitive friend.
It's nice of you to think of me like that
but I'm afraid, for now, we can't actually be friends.
Aw, say it ain't so.
Wouldn't be in my client's best interests
and I am all about my client's best interests.
Who the hell are you?
I'm your champion, Miss McLean.
I'm your legal advisor. Eileen Donachie sent me.
"Yes to community". I like that. Hashtagtastic.
You working? I'm on my dinner break.
Not any more you're not. You can't talk to me like that.
Take me to Chrome, or your dinner break is gonna go on indefinitely.
Hi, I'm looking for Eileen Donachie. She's just over there.
Hi. Gary Trenton. Nice to meet you.
Eileen Donachie. Likewise.
I'm afraid today's kind of run away with me a wee bit,
I'm helping a family with a housing crisis.
Basically me against the forces of darkness.
Sounds like you've got a lot on.
I do, yeah. So maybe we can reschedule?
We could, or you could let me do a trial shift.
Show you what I can do and free you up to fight the good fight.
Well... I've got over a decade's experience running everything from local pubs
to high-end cocktail bars all over the country.
I've read your CV. That's why you're here.
So...let me put my money where my mouth is.
I guarantee you won't regret it.
Sink or swim? OK. You're on.
We're trending in Glasgow, Amber.
I know they say there's no such thing as bad publicity but...
It'll blow over. Let me know if you need a hand.
I'm doing everything by the book - what can you offer that I can't?
Caitlin does have a wee thing for me.
Wow. She is only human.
Only just. No, I think I'll keep everything above board.
Feel better for that?
Loads. You should try it.
Unless you're too much of a control freak, obviously.
Quick. Turn around. We need to go. What are you doing?
It's him. We need to go.
Him who? Him, from last night.
Very nice. Move it.
Why? Don't be stupid.
What are you doing here? So this is your local?
After you. What are you doing here?
Trial shift as bar manager.
Listen, I wanted to say sorry for skipping out on you this morning.
I'm not normally that guy.
Don't worry about it. I'm glad you'd gone.
I totally am that guy. I would have done the same.
It's not as if we're dating or anything.
It was just a hook-up.
I'm going travelling soon, so...
Well, like I say, I wouldn't normally disappear,
but I didn't want to be late for my interview.
If I'd known it was literally across the road...
You didn't notice the pub when we got out of the taxi last night?
Well, in my defence, it was dark, I was drunk, and...
I had other things on my mind.
Aren't you going to introduce me?
This is Angel Delaney. Angel Delaney, this is, um...
This is... Gary. Gary. This is Gary.
Nice to meet you. And you. What can I get you? Orange and cranberry, please.
Virgin Mary. I'll bring them over.
I'm so sorry about her. She's my flatmate.
And she never misses a chance to try and embarrass me. It's fine.
I couldn't remember your name either.
Hey, I brought you your lunch.
You're a life saver.
I've literally nothing better to do.
Well, without you I'd be starving. I thought you were coming home.
I had to give Her Royal Highness a lift.
What Amber wants Amber gets.
I'm getting treated like a servant and I'm sick of it.
Sick to the back teeth. Don't let her get to you, Jimmy.
She's not worth it, none of them are.
We're stuck with them, eh? At their beck and call. Yeah...
Where were you taking her?
Doesn't matter. Did you get my crisps?
Jimmy, just tell me.
I just dropped her in town.
Where in town?
What was she doing there?
I don't know, she's been going back and forth.
Oh, has she now?
Kelly, don't rock the boat, all right? It's my boat!
Don't you think it's a bit weird?
Him getting a job so close to where you live?
What do you mean?
Think about it.
You guys spend one night together,
and the next day he's getting a job in your local...
It's all a bit Single White Female.
Do you think?
Massive coincidence or a stalker's ploy to be near his prey?
Do you want another?
No, I need to get back to work. See you at home.
Just for me, thanks. She's gone to work.
That's one thing I won't miss when I'm travelling around the States.
How long are you away for? At least a year. Maybe more.
It's my journey of self discovery.
"I wanna go someplace where I can marvel at something."
Ah, so this is your Eat Pray Love moment.
Terrible film. See, I much preferred her in Mystic Pizza. Me too!
So, um... When did you get your interview for here?
Just this morning.
I figured working across the road from you meant I could be closer.
Relax. Shut up! I'm joking. I phoned about the job last week.
was just a weird coincidence. My daughter lives nearby.
I want to be in her life more. Same again?
Don't suppose you could whip me up one of those virgin cocktails?
What is going on?
Bit of a revamp.
You can just un-vamp.
I'm not sure that's practical, really.
I don't care. I want everything back the way it was.
Sorry, did Alex not run this by you? No, he didn't.
Do you guys need a moment or...?
You were only supposed to be sorting out the mess your mum left,
nothing else. Don't worry, I'm on that too.
Don't worry? You've trashed my club.
Eggs and omelettes, Kel - we're going for a whole new look, new name, everything.
What? Changing the name?
I think there's a shortlist of three if you want to give any input?
On whose say so? The majority shareholder, naturally.
Lenny's looking to go a bit more up-market.
And he didn't think to tell me?
I don't think anyone meant to offend you.
Don't patronise me, Amber. I know this is just you asking
Daddy for a new plaything, talk about being spoiled.
We want to take things in a different direction.
The feeling was that didn't necessarily reflect your taste.
You calling me a Ned?
I'm going to go and speak to Lenny.
You enjoyed every second.
Don't judge me, I haven't had much fun today.
Have you got a minute?
You gonna tell me why you've been avoiding me all week?
I just wanted to tell you that I spoke to the people
that Alasdair brought in.
So, no then?
I really think you should talk to them. What's this?
Potentially 300 new clients.
They don't like the big, impersonal gyms,
they just want company when they come here and they trust Alasdair.
He's in contact with their leisure group.
I don't know what's bothering you,
but I just thought you might have wanted to deal with this yourself.
You're serious? You don't know what's bothering me?
Do guys have, like, a bit of their brain missing or something?
Is that it? Is that all you've got to say?
What do you want me to say? I want to know...
..last week, we...
You know what, never mind.
Maybe I'm over-thinking it.
I better get back to work.
Thanks for this. I'll speak to Alasdair.
See if we can work something out.
Aye, we've got loads of followers - People's Fightback.
What is it you think you're doing, sweetheart?
Right, and where's the cab going?
Oh, you're hilarious...
A boy wanting a taxi to go to a brighter tomorrow.
So, it's not just the numpties and the wee lassie outside?
The numpties are the least of it.
It's the no-shows, the fake calls.
Hello, Amber Cabs.
Same to you, pal.
And the website's down. We've not made a penny this morning.
This is all down to that lawyer.
Dev somebody or other, fancies himself as the "people's champion."
Can you not have a quiet word?
I'm trying to get out of the "quiet word" business, Jimmy.
Phone Alex, tell him to get back here.
Alex is busy.
He's doing up Chrome - or whatever you decide to call it now.
This is not a good time, Kel. It never is.
I backed off when you were sick and look where that got me.
I'm having my club nicked from under me.
You need to talk to your kids.
That sounds very much like you telling me what to do. Someone's got to.
Not now, is that all right?!
Kelly, we are up against it. Let's not fall out, all right?
Let me tell you a couple of things about those kids of yours.
It wasn't that long ago that Alex wished you dead.
I mean, literally said it out loud.
And Amber, she's not spoke to you for five years,
suddenly she's back and you're eating out of her hand?
Mark my words, they are gonna play you - you, Lenny Murdoch -
for a right sucker too.
Congratulations - lovely family.
You finished? No. Not by a long chalk.
Lenny, she doesn't mean any offence.
Since the baby, she doesn't know what she's been saying.
Sounds to me like she did. Look...
Shut up, Jimmy, OK, just get Alex. This madness stops now.
Eileen, her bark's worse than her bite, but only just.
Alpha female, total ball-buster.
Keep her on side, you should be fine.
Good to know. Her stepmother, Liz Hamilton. Older lady.
She's a bit full of herself, but she's actually pretty harmless.
She lives with Molly O'Hara. Now you'll hear her before you see her.
About this high, octogenarian.
Always after a freebie, usually up to no good.
They work together in the charity shop on the corner. Right.
Dr Jandhu. Annie.
Suffers from resting bitch face but she's actually a really good laugh.
Likes her red wine by the bottle.
Might be a wee bit of a problem there, but who am I to judge?
She's married to AJ, he works in the Oyster down the street.
Former banker, tried to set up his own pie business.
I mean, pies? Really? Epic fail.
He's punching above his weight with that one.
I mean, if you ask me, they're totally mismatched. Which I didn't.
Here, I'm trying to help you settle in here.
And I appreciate it. Carry on.
She's got the shop across the road.
Yes. Wide as the Clyde with a mouth to match,
but you totally want her on your side in a fight.
Her husband Jimmy, completely hen-pecked.
Likes a dram. Works in the cab office.
Got it. Which leads me on to Lenny Murdoch.
Owns Amber Cabs and a bunch of other stuff.
He used to own this place.
More of a thug in a suit than a gangster, but stay out his road.
And his son, Alex...dodgy as.
Just don't trust either of them.
Bad boys not your type?
Bad boys I can handle. Crooked psychos, no' so much.
Sounds like the only nice guy around is leaving town.
No, there's Patrick and Bob and Angus. They're good guys.
Patrick bats for our team and you'd be forgiven for thinking Bob
and Angus do too cos they're always joined at the hip,
but they're just besties.
Ellie you know. She's a gem.
Her sister, on the other hand...
Don't even get me started. What a horror show!
She's loud, she's lazy, she's bigoted.
She made up a bunch of stuff about my pal Patrick
because he helped her son out.
He could have ended up on the sex offender's list.
She's a right piece of work.
Three kids to three different guys.
How anybody could procreate with that one is beyond me.
Do yourself a favour and just steer clear.
What you two gossiping about?
Robbie here is giving me the lowdown on the great and good around here.
Oh, well, you're in for a treat.
So I believe.
It's a great wee part of Glasgow. Full of life and characters.
You'll love it.
Well, how did it go?
You want to grab this one with both hands, Eileen. He's a keeper.
Ellie? Mm, I reckon I can put up with him.
Well, can't argue with that. The job's yours if you want it.
CAITLIN: Say no to gentrification!
Say no to social cleansing!
Say no the Murdochs!
No to the Murdochs!
No, no, no!
No to the Murdochs.
Say no to gentrification!
Say no to social cleansing!
Say no to the Murdochs!
No to the Murdochs!
You know this guy?
Not as well as he'd like.
Yeah, you keep making little jokes,
then everyone might forget this is your mess.
Wow, are you really going to take one for the team?
No' going to come to that - I know what I'm doing.
Truce. Come on, Caitlin, let's talk about this.
That's what my lawyer's for.
Why don't I take care of the legal side of things
and you two can have your chat?
Cool by me.
What do you say, Caitlin?
Really? Placards? Banner?
How is this even your fight?
I pick my own battles, thanks.
Just so long as the TV cameras show up.
TV? Very last century.
Social media's more my thing.
Why don't I tell you all about this over a drink?
Yeah, I'm all for keeping things civilised.
All I want is to work this out.
Those eyes - I bet you can talk a woman into anything.
I do OK.
Better than OK, I reckon.
Well, I'm single right now.
So am I.
This is like a romcom with us on opposing sides.
So, how do we get to the happy ending?
I've got nothing against folk trying to make a few quid.
You're a businessman, Lenny's a businessman, I respect that.
Your sister's crazy but that's another story.
All I want is for you to comply with our requests.
Requests? More like a demand. More like a threat.
We're looking for a return on our investment.
It's an investment to you, but it's my life.
I know you feel connected to the community but...
I'm going to be honest with you right now
because I think you respect that in your women.
I do care about the community and gentrification
and all that stuff...
..but the most important thing is my kids,
and they're happy here.
I know it would be a wrench, moving. It would be a nightmare.
That girl's entire future's going to hell
if she doesnae pass her biology higher tomorrow.
You think I want all this?
We can help you. With what?
offer some level of compensation for any distress caused.
I'm not talking a vast amount - 500 cash.
Did Amber no' make that clear?
No. No, she never mentioned it.
See? All this could easily have been avoided.
But I'm no' here to be bought off.
Not at the first sight of a fat wallet, anyway.
We're in the big leagues now - punitive damages.
You are being very badly advised.
We'll see, won't we?
Can I have a minute?
I've got an appointment.
It won't take long.
Angel's Geriatric Gym.
It's got nice a ring to it.
You wanted me for something?
We have to end to this.
Fine by me.
But the only way we can actually do that is talk about what happened.
I really do have an appointment.
You kissed me, Patrick.
And I kissed you back.
I'm sorry. It should never have happened.
Are you saying that because we work together or because you regret it?
You're my boss. I crossed the line.
For future reference, if you kiss someone you work with,
the healthy, mature way to deal with it is to talk about it,
not ignore it or pretend it never happened.
I didn't mean to upset you.
I'm just not good at this.
At what? Talking.
So you just bury your head in the sand, hope it'll all go away.
Well, in this case, it has.
Let's just put the kiss behind us and move on.
You can go.
What are you doing here?
What's going on?
Oh, you know, Mum's starting a war with the local crime boss.
As you do.
Can I help?
Can you stop time so I can actually prepare for the biggest
exam of my life tomorrow?
Mum's on a suicide mission.
I need to keep an eye on her.
I can do that.
You and I both know she won't listen to you.
Thank you, though.
You don't have to do everything on your own, Jen.
Did you stop by for a specific reason, or...?
It's just... I need to get back to my books.
Sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt.
So, I didn't want to get your hopes up,
but you are looking at the new manager of the Tall Ship.
Jen. Did you hear me?
What? Yeah. Tall Ship.
We can spend more time together.
I can help take the pressure off you with your mum and the kids...
Look around, Dad. This is my life.
How are you going to fix this,
or the next mad thing Mum gets us involved in?
Honestly, the best thing you can do for me right now
is just to leave me alone and let me study while I still can.
I'll come and see you when my exams are over, yeah?
The megaphone was a nice touch.
Were you renting it to Caitlin by the hour?
This isn't a game. We're deadly serious.
We're going to keep going. Until?
Until we get you for something major.
Emotional trauma, psychological torture, wider community issues.
How much did that suit cost?
I make a living. But I make it for the right reasons.
You really think you can win this, don't you? I do.
Or at least get you worried enough to make a deal.
Do I look worried?
Actually, you look sensational.
You're going to have to do better than that.
I'm happy to negotiate whenever you're ready.
I need to know precisely what's going to be on the table.
You maybe just want to make sure
that you're no' under the table, mate.
That sounded like a communication which could constitute
a threat of violence to the person in Contravention of section
50A Criminal Law Consolidation (Scotland) Act 1995.
It was advice.
Sorry, do I know you?
This is my dad, Lenny Murdoch.
Pleased to meet you.
Don't pretend you don't know who I am.
I tell you what if you don't -
you ask around this place about me,
then maybe you'll think about reappraising your tactics.
And if I don't?
I don't really deal in hypothetical situations,
so I'll just dangle you from that bridge once we come to it.
Another threat. Banter. Just banter, mate.
Come on, we're going.
Can I finish my drink at least? No.
So, he's Jenny's dad? Mm-hmm.
Here, you know what this means, don't you?
You're in a sex chain with my sister.
Oh, my God.
Nae offence but...
Och, it was a long time ago. I'm no' sure it even counts.
Do you ever get the feeling you've left things too late?
My credit card charges would tell me that yes, I do, all the time.
I just thought my daughter would be happier that I got the job.
You're here now. That's all that matters.
Now, come on.
This isn't the face of a man who's just got a new job.
You should be celebrating.
Let me buy you a drink when you finish here tonight.
I'm not looking for a relationship. Neither am I.
Doesn't mean to say we can't have a bit of fun.
I should probably just finish my shift and head home. But thanks.
I'll see you around, yeah? Yep.
Cracking day all round, eh?
One for the family album.
It just got out of hand.
She's digging her heels in now.
So we buy her off.
I tried that already. It was a "matter of principle".
Why don't we send a couple of guys with baseball bats round?
See how her principles hold out then.
The sort of money we are dealing with now
we do not jeopardise with baseball bats. I'm joking.
It's not an option.
Because of you, darling.
I mean, we don't want to see you sent back to jail.
No, of course not.
You had to get involved, didn't you? Now look where we are.
What do you want me to say? Nothing. Not one word.
So I'm just sidelined now.
I think it's for the best,
considering what you were about to offer that sleazy lawyer. What?
What do you take me for?
You're out your depth, you're panicking.
Leads to more mistakes.
It's on us now. Oh, aye, cos you've really covered yourself in glory.
What is it with you?
Is Caitlin McClean the only woman you cannae smooth talk round here?
I say we just put it to one side. No way. Lenny...
This is the key.
If we don't push this through we look weak.
How are you going to go for the bigger deals
when people think you're a pushover?
Aye, you're right. It is the key.
I thought it was just a wee doll's house for me to play with.
No, darling, it was a test.
It was a test you failed.
MUSIC: How Deep Is Your Love by Calvin Harris Disciples
Turns out sitting around thinking about my failures as a father
wasn't a great way to spend an evening.
Just wondering if that offer's still open.
Come on, everyone. Up you get.
Yesterday was the first day of the battle,
but today the war has just started.
When I saw Alex's face, I saw fear.
But I saw something else - I saw vulnerability.
But more than anything, I saw victory!
If we all stand together, there's nothing they can do about it.
Nothing. Come on, sing with me, comrades.
# We shall not, we shall not be moved! #
Can we have breakfast first? No.
# We shall not, we shall not be moved!
# We shall... # Come on!
# We shall not be moved! #
There's rats. Rats! There's rats!
Mum, they're more scared of us than we are of them.
No, everybody get out the house, there's rats!
Hurry up, hurry up, close the door, close the door.
Oh! What's going on?
Rats, rats in there!
Caitlin, is everything all right?
I can't have this. My exam's in like an hour.
You're no' going back in there. You're no'! What?
We'll sort something out. You two. I want pest control, now.
Emergency call out.
Pest control, what do you mean?
There's rats. Rats! And none of your funny business.
You're still the landlord, it's your responsibility.
You don't need to tell me about responsibility.
The last thing I want is for the whole neighbourhood to get infested.
Ugh. Let's go check it out.
Do you no' believe me? Oh, I believe you. 100%.
It's too late. I can't cope with this madness. I can't.
Come with us and get your stuff if you like. It'll be all right.
Shout if you see anything, Jenny.
Going to tell me how you did it?
Hey, shhh, shhh.
Don't be scared.
Is this a witch's familiar thing, animals doing your bidding?
There's nothing supernatural going on.
Although maybe I am psychic.
I mean, I knew she wouldn't like rats,
but that was properly phobic.
You must be so proud.
We'll get pest control in,
seal the place off for a few days while they work.
Maybe even a week.
Meanwhile the campaign loses all momentum.
Sadly, yes. People are fickle.
What if we don't catch our little visitors? What if they breed?
I bought two males. We're safe.
You're good. You are very good.
Jen? You'd better grab clothes for everyone.
Keep them coming.
I think the vodka shock theory has been discredited recently.
What can I tell you? It works for me.
Maybe make that your last.
Don't you start.
You've got the kids to think about.
That's all I ever think about!
It's all right for you and your cushy job and your independence.
Every waking minute of my life is about they kids.
I mean, where the hell are we supposed to sleep the night?
All right? Can I have a beer, please, mate?
Stick that on my tab, Gary.
You don't have a tab.
And no, you're not starting one.
Sorry about the commotion at ours.
See, you're a nice guy. He's a nice guy.
Such a good neighbour.
As a good neighbour, I don't suppose there's any room at your bit?
For you? For me and my poor weans. Just for the night.
I... Er... See, the thing is...
You wouldnae even know we were there.
We've only got the one spare room and Angus has got
some mates staying the night.
It's been planned for ages.
Is that right?
What's their names? What?
These pals of Angus's, what're they called?
Paul and George.
Ringo as well? The whole of the fab four?
You're at it.
Leave the guy alone, Caitlin.
I'm sorry, but we've just no' got any room.
I take it back, you're no' a good neighbour.
Away to your wee love nest, half pint.
Wind your neck in, Caitlin.
I would be better if I didn't have the image of Gary
and Caitlin in my head thanks to you! (Sorry.)
How was the exam?
Awful. Just awful.
Oh, darling, I'm so sorry.
Lots of people feel like that after their exams.
You might have done better than you think.
Aye, it's true. I didn't even finish it! Nowhere near.
My mind just went blank.
You've been having a hard time recently. Anyone can see that.
Hey, there's always things we can do,
like a letter from your doctor explaining the situation.
And backing from your councillor regarding your housing crisis.
Is that possible?
Yeah, of course.
See? They know.
They'll tell them how the Murdochs have made our lives a misery.
Caitlin, let's go.
Big mistake. Big mistake, leaving the premises.
I don't do rats! You know what she looks like now?
Responsible landlord clearing up after scummy tenants. Scummy?
I'm saying how it looks, not how it is.
Don't be so oversensitive. The kid's exam thing might be good news.
What did you say?
That's pest control in now. They leave poison down for a week.
We all want to be sure, don't we?
Of course you won't be expecting any rent from my client
while the disruption is taking place.
In fact, I think as long as the dispute continues,
you won't be getting a single penny.
And when you think how slow the courts move...
Well, it could be a year or more until all this is resolved.
A year? Is that what you want?
I'll follow my lawyer's advice.
I've had it with you people.
Rich coming from a psycho jailbird.
You better watch this psycho jailbird
doesn't arrange any more surprises.
Yeah, our furry friends are one thing,
but you wouldn't want a gas leak, say.
The whole place up in flames.
Cos you know what people would say -
dodgy cow probably trying to fiddle the meter or something.
And those poor weans.
This is a nice surprise.
I didn't come here to listen to cheesy lines.
It sort of begs the question, why are you here?
I came here to tell you what I think of you.
I've got a pretty good idea about that.
I'm beginning to get a sense of the real you.
You're happy to persecute families, ruin lives, and for what?
To make a killing?
Their lives were a mess before I ever set eyes on them.
You're not making it any better.
That's no' my job. It's no' yours either.
I'm taking an interest in the people of my community.
Or are you just looking for an excuse to see me again?
I came here to see your father. Yeah? Yeah.
Everyone knows that he's got the final say, the real power.
As you can see, he's not here. Pity.
Just run along home to your husband, there's a good girl.
Leave my husband out of this.
The last time you were with me, it was you that left him out.
I mean, you were acting like he didn't exist, really.
That was a mistake.
I won't be making it again.
Look, I'm sorry if I offended your sensibilities
for the downtrodden masses. Don't treat me like an idiot.
I think we both know how you want me to treat you, Annie.
I don't feel too good.
We'll get a press release out. No.
People like the Murdochs, they hate publicity.
I said no. I don't want to make enemies out of them.
I wanted my kids to be happy and safe and now they're no'.
Caitlin, the rats'll be gone soon.
It's no' the rats I'm scared of.
What do you mean?
Has somebody threatened you?
No. Because we could use that.
I'm the one being used!
By him to make money and by you to get at Lenny.
No-one cares about me or my family.
That's not true.
Now, about this threat...
Enough. No more.
I'm going. I'll go to the council.
They'll find us a place, they'll have to.
Actually, that's not a bad shout -
if it's a dump it looks better in court.
All this hardship - heartbreaking, really.
Ach, I'm away. The campaign still needs you.
Listen, mate, this isnae a campaign. This is my life!
I'm sorry you feel like that.
You'll get over it though, eh?
Don't just stand there, go after her. OK.
I know, I know, I'm sorry,
but this might be really worth your while.
Listen, sorry I've spoiled your agenda.
I don't have an agenda. Everybody has an agenda.
It's just a matter of working out what it is.
So what's yours?
I like to turn a buck.
Oh, the legitimate businessman shtick? Very good.
You know, in days gone by I might've given you
a wee bit of alternative therapy for that. But now?
I've been doing a bit of digging on you.
I've got nothing to hide.
I've got some friends in the City Chambers that have
interesting stories about a certain South Side selection campaign.
Something about questionable expense claims too, right?
Why don't you just toddle off and find yourself an ambulance to chase?
What's going on? Amber!
Don't you worry, darling. I'll get you out, OK?
You hear me? You just stay calm.
You hear me?
A lawyer, she'll need a lawyer.
This was your doing, wasn't it?
Well, you know I'm a concerned citizen.
What, your copper-top-copper help you set it up, did he?
Miss McLean was too scared to make a statement
so as her councillor I made sure I notified the proper authorities.
We're doing no good here. Let's go.
This isn't over.
You got to somebody. You always do.
Either you or your wee pet polis will need to prove that.
Watch what you're saying.
Eileen thinks she's the political animal.
We might need an election manifesto of our own.
But she told us to just play it cool.
Maybe we should let all hell break loose and see what happens.
Nobody knows there's anything going on between us. There isn't.
Are you worried I kiss you again?
Right here, right this second.
I need to go. You said that already.
