Say no to the Murdochs!
-No to the Murdochs!
We wouldn't want a gas leak, say, the whole place up in flames?
Don't you worry, darlin', I'll get you out, OK?
You hear me? You just stay calm.
-Has somebody threatened you?
Because we could use that.
I'M the one being used - by him to make money
and by you to get back at Lenny.
Give this place a chance, you might be happy here one day.
I'm beginning to think that we won't be happy anywhere.
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.
You were acting like he didn't exist.
That was a mistake. I won't be making it again.
Stella's having a really hard time right now
and I'm just trying to be there for her, as a pal.
So, what, you were just going to ignore me all night?
You either look forward or you look back.
It's your choice, mate.
That'd be good, yeah. Tomorrow sounds great, yeah.
OK. It'll surely be all right on this side.
-Sorry, yeah, bye.
-Down a wee bit and to the left.
-Your other left.
Yep, I think that's perfect.
What do you think?
I think someone's having a laugh. Get it down.
-Why should I?
-Because I told you to.
I work for Angel.
Not for much longer.
See, that's typical.
You people think you can ride roughshod over this community.
Doctor, I hope we can rely on your support?
Officially, I'm staying neutral, I think.
That's a sensible decision.
I didn't ask for your opinion.
Oh, but you've got it anyway.
I'm just here to use the gym.
Don't let me keep you.
She'll come round to our way of thinking. They all will.
And, then, it'll just be your wee unholy trinity
against the rest of us.
Actually, Eileen, I'd take those odds any day of the week.
Even with baby sister back behind bars?
Oh, I think you'll find that's quite a fluid ongoing situation.
It's OK, it's OK. Don't let them think they got to you.
Come on, stand up.
Was it Donald?
Oh, he came to say hi, stupid grin on his face
to let me know he knew I was here.
Mostly, they just left me stewing in the cell.
-I can't do cells, Dad. I can't.
Hey, hey, hey. OK, OK.
I just need to get home.
Come on, get a move on, will you?
I know you're paid by the hour, but come on!
POUNDING MUSIC BLARES
Don't thank me yet.
The fridge is on the blink, so the milk might be off.
No, it's no'.
What? Am I supposed to live in this dump?
We had a nice place for once!
I know. I know you did.
And the noise last night - I didn't get any sleep at all.
None of us did.
I'm going to the library.
Sorry, doll, are we disturbing you?
Well, it's pointless anyway, I screwed up yesterday,
so the rest of my exams won't mean anything.
You just keep doing your best. You never know.
Well, I'll need some bus fare.
Oh, of course.
What about your dinner?
I'll grab some crisps.
Here. Look, get yourself something proper to eat, eh?
I'll need it.
You see what it's like?
How is she meant to keep her mind on studying?
I know. I'm going to go and see Eileen.
Oh, aye, cos she's played a blinder so far.
El, I stood up to the Murdochs and look where it's got us!
Finally starting to get the stink of that place off me.
-12 hours, Dad.
-Small-minded, petty people trying to mess with us,
-that's all it is.
-They might have been messing with you,
but it was me that had to get locked up.
And I've been locked up enough for one lifetime.
I'm not going back to jail.
I'm not gonnae let that happen.
That witch Eileen! This is all down to her.
-She'll pay for it.
-Oh, good. You might get to go to jail, too.
-You saying I should let it go?
-Well, what are you gonnae do?
Eileen is a respected public figure. Our name is mud round here.
Our name's Murdoch, I'm not even sure who you're supposed to be.
I'm the guy who keeps things ticking over
while you get yourself locked up - again.
Yeah, cos money's all you care about.
It's kind of important - lawyers don't work for free.
All right, boys and girls, play nice or I'll crack your heads together.
You can't go after Eileen.
What then? Forget about it?
You need to hang fire, take a breath - we all do.
Oh, for God's sake!
No... No, he could be right.
-We can play this smarter,
get people on our side.
Since when has anyone ever been on our side?
First time for everything.
Eileen thinks she's the political animal,
but we might need an election manifesto of our own.
Hey! Don't worry, she'll get what's coming to her.
For now, no more trouble -
not until we're good and ready to start it.
-The usual, darling?
-Oh, how was the work-out?
Oh, joy unconfined, obviously.
Tell me something, honestly.
Am I overdoing it with the cheeky chappie bit?
I mean, I don't want to sound like Del Boy
flogging hooky gear out a suitcase.
I think you're doing an all right job.
Well, that's set my mind at rest, hasn't it(?)
You do know that I'm joking, don't you?
Yeah. No, I mean...
You'll do better after a coffee.
I see Eileen's been in here, too.
Yeah, but I won't be putting them up, though.
Alex won't be too happy, will he?
Well, there's one up in the gym.
Yeah, but I don't have the same sway with him that Angel does, do I?
Is that still...ongoing?
You never know with Alex.
There's always some woman after him, isn't there?
You know what, forget about sounding like a cheeky chappie,
you sound like an old woman.
Should we make this decaf today?
Maybe what I really need... I mean, what WE really need
is a break.
What, like a holiday?
A long weekend. I hear Bruges is nice.
-I'm not sure.
-Come on! Waffles, cloudy beer - what's not to like?
No, I mean, about a break.
Just three or four days. It'd be a change of scene.
-It might do us good.
AJ, Doc, how's it going?
-James - roll and sausage with red sauce, yes?
(That's me getting everyone's usual now.
(Maybe it IS time for a break.)
I thought you were staying neutral?
-Then, why are you looking at me like
something you just stepped in?
Maybe cos I don't enjoy the way you look at me.
What's your objection?
Just the way you look at every other woman with a pulse.
It's not the same, not with you.
I'd find that easier to believe
if it wasn't for all the flirting outside the gym.
That wasn't for your benefit.
What do you mean?
I have to put on a show for the locals.
I've an image to maintain.
Smug, cocky git?
I give the people what they want.
-Well, I don't want it.
-I know. I...
That's why I'm different when it's just the two of us.
It's not just the two of us, though, is it?
No, I suppose not.
No. So whether you're being slick or sincere,
it doesn't really matter.
It matters - your opinion of me, how you think about me, it matters.
Not if we can avoid each other.
-Good luck with that.
-Oh, back to being smug?
No, I just mean this place is practically a village.
Our paths are gonnae cross, Annie.
And if they do, then we just keep on walking in the opposite direction.
I'll show you. It's easy.
This is only gonnae work if you play your part.
It was all a misunderstanding.
One word for it.
I shouldn't have lost control, but I knew women like that in prison
and if you didn't stand up to them, they'd walk all over you.
Yes, well, she is quite confrontational.
Not like your dear old daddy, of course. He's a pussy cat.
I'm not speaking for him.
I just want to get my life back on track.
And that business with Caitlin and the rats, I mean...
Oh, I mean, that's enough to make anybody's skin crawl.
Is it sorted now?
I've ordered the most extensive treatment possible -
the last thing I want is for the whole neighbourhood to get infested
just because someone couldn't clean their house properly.
Murdoch Enterprises are happy
to have your place checked out, too, at our expense.
Well, better safe than sorry.
I'll give them a call - I just want to put everyone's minds at rest.
Well, that's very much appreciated, dear.
All this business with Caitlin and the vermin, I forgot the real reason
I came in here - Chrome's having a bit of a makeover
and we wondered if we could donate some stuff -
glasses, mirrors, bar stools, even.
Oh, how kind!
Well, this was the first place I thought of, obviously -
dear old Malcolm.
Not bad, considering your family seems to be at war
with the rest of the community.
-It'll blow over.
-It had better.
Look, Lenny, I can't tell you how to run your affairs...
-..but it's my duty to warn you about stress levels.
I mean, you've seen what can happen.
Look, my...workload, well, that's going to be changing.
Amber and Alex, they're gonnae be taking on a lot more.
I don't know much about your daughter,
but Alex doesn't seem to be the quiet-life type.
What makes you say that?
Ach, I know the boy's private life is all over the place,
but he's got a good business head.
He's gonnae make my life a lot easier.
Good. Good, because that's all that matters from my point of view.
Seriously, you've nothing to be concerned about.
RETCHING FROM BATHROOM
Kelly Marie, is that you being sick again?
It must be a virus, Ma. I'm fine.
-I've been thinking...
-Have you, aye?
Do you know what the problem was with the open mic night?
Aye, it was a money-making exercise that didnae make any money.
I was speaking more rhetorically, but...
No, the problem was it was in the Oyster.
It's not big enough, not cool enough. We need somewhere bigger.
An urban performance space.
Looks like a shed to me.
That's the point. It IS a shed, until we reclaim it.
I'm going for the hipster market.
That sounds right up your street(!)
What they save on razor blades goes right into my pocket.
I could get Robbie to set up a beard-trimming area.
Oh, aye, cos that's just what you want on a night out, isn't it?
-How are youse?
Aye, well, he's raining on my parade, so business as usual.
What are you two ladies up to?
Just goin' on a wee walk, then I've got a doctor's appointment later on.
Do you want me to come with you?
HE SNIGGERS Naw...
I didnae mean into the surgery.
I meant I could take wee Hope for a walk in the fresh air.
-Have you got time?
-Aye, of course.
Take him and his negativity out my road for a wee while.
Who would be more amenable, then?
Just get me a name, OK?
I'll deal with the rest.
-KNOCK AT DOOR
Eh, got a visitor for you.
-Get rid of them, will you?
-I don't think they'll take no for an answer.
-Oh, hiya, pal! What are youse up to, eh?
We've got football practice.
-I play in goals.
-Aye, I bet nothing gets by you, eh?
Right, troops, let's go.
Don't want to be late, eh, or the coach'll put you in the wee team.
How many of them's involved?
Couple of dozen?
It's a shame the council have cut their funding,
so it'll be shut down soon.
Here, you make sure you get you
and your big cousin a cone after, OK?
OK! Bye, Grandad.
I don't care what my mum says, your granda's all right.
I sometimes think that this should be fitted
with flashing lights. Sirens, even.
Would that not alarm the patients?
-Some patients need alarming.
-Ah. Cholesterol levels.
I'm not going to blind you with science,
but the medical term is "through the roof".
The good news is that we can get it back on track.
Now, I can give you a prescription for something,
but you have to do your part.
Now, watch your diet.
Cut way, way back on anything fried, anything processed, any cheeses.
I do have a weakness for a nice ripe brie.
I'm not unreasonable.
-You can have a sliver.
Now, go - sin no more.
I bet if I were to ask your husband,
he would say that you're not entirely without sin yourself.
What's this got to do with my husband?
He's revamped the Oyster menu.
Brie and cranberry on sourdough.
Yes. Yes, of course.
What was it Oscar Wilde said? "I can resist anything except temptation."
You can give me a lift.
What? I mean, where?
The club. I promised the charity shop a load of old tat.
You're following my advice on the charm offensive.
Yes, and it's exhausting.
Oooft! Hand-delivering lunches?
That's you making life difficult for yourself.
No, no, no, it's only for very special customers.
Aye, I suppose I did slip Stevie the odd roll and sausage.
-There you are, Annie, look, special delivery.
Let me guess - brie and cranberry on sourdough?
How did you know?
I'm a doctor. I know everything.
If I carry on like this,
the weekend away will have to be at a health spa.
-You going away, aye?
-Er, it's not settled yet.
-Well, I don't know if I can get the time off.
I'm sorry, I just need to check with Alex first.
So, then check. Stella, do you want to come through?
Enjoy your sandwich.
I will. I will, thanks.
All right, mate?
Hey, on baby-sitting duties?
Aye, Stella's got an appointment.
Oh, good, good.
Oh, not good. Och, sorry!
I'm all over the place, Bob.
-I'm really worried about Caitlin.
She's got herself in a right state.
-Is the new place that...
Hey, you, it's fine!
I shouldnae have stopped moving. Sorry, pal!
Well, you can walk with us.
I'm just going to go back to my work.
Honestly, you shoot one gangster...
This place. I was stupid thinking I could just take over.
I mean, even if the council did grant the licensing,
the police would overrule. Donald would love it.
Aye, there was a reason Lenny put Kelly in here in the first place.
She should be done for crimes against good taste.
Well, I'm glad you've faced up to reality.
The reality is we need a front -
someone who can do as they're told and stay out of my way.
We're dealing with real money.
A property portfolio is just the beginning.
You could take a nice salary there
without ever having to lift a finger.
Why overcomplicate matters here?
I know we never grew up together,
but sometimes I know exactly what you were like when you were six.
Adorable, you mean?
Carry these to the car for me, there's a good boy.
I have some good news for you.
I haven't had much of that in doctors' surgeries.
I'm happy to be the exception.
It's from the hospital.
They're bringing forward the date of your reconstruction.
You should've been contacted by them.
It probably went to my old address.
Well, make sure you give them your new address.
I would hate for you to miss an appointment.
No, definitely, man. But... Wait is this tomorrow?
No, no, no. That's your first consultation.
The procedure is scheduled for next month.
Are you all right?
This is amazing.
It really is.
Sorry. I know that was a wee bit weird.
No, no, it's fine, really.
I'll give you another one, then!
You know where we went wrong? The agitators.
The professional activists.
Uh-huh. This is supposed to be about a family,
not Occupy Shieldinch.
You know, I think I'll have a soda and lime this time.
Thought I might practise what I preach for once.
I'll get that, Ellie, and a whisky for me.
I don't have your level of willpower, obviously.
Plenty of brass neck, though, showing your face in here.
Well, I know I'm always guaranteed a warm welcome.
You can't have a drink with me.
You're the GP, you've been very good to my poorly father,
I'm just showing my appreciation.
It looks innocent unless you start acting weird.
Do you think anyone in this pub, or in this neighbourhood,
associates your name with the word "innocent"?
Well, I think you've got enough
of the veneer of respectability for the both of us.
Not when you're standing next to me.
You worried about guilt by association?
Guilt full stop.
You know, things are full-on for me just now...
Yeah, your poorly father mentioned something.
And yet I've been distracted all day.
I can't stop thinking about you, Annie.
You can't have a drink with me.
Why no'? Nobody knows there's anything going on between us.
-What's the problem, then?
Why? You worried I might kiss you again?
Right this second?
Tell you what, Ellie, just forget about that drink.
I've got stuff to do.
And that's your £3 change there.
Aha! One rule for you and one rule for everybody else, is it?
Well, there she is putting the fear of God into poor Alasdair
over a cheese sandwich, but she's allowed to get on the bevvy
-whenever she fancies.
-Shocking, isn't it?
I might even pick up 40 fags while I'm here.
Just ignore her, Doctor.
It's all right, I'm getting used to it.
It's one of the perks of living so close to the surgery.
But you wouldnae think of moving away, would you?
Now, see, she's worried. You should've kept your big gob shut!
I'm not going anywhere.
The thing is, Doctor, see, I was ill a few years ago with cancer.
The fact that Dr Brodie knew me
and knew my family, it probably saved my life.
Wow! I've got a lot to live up to.
Aye, well, you've done a no' bad job.
Folk trust someone they see out and about.
Even if I am buying bevvy?
-ESPECIALLY if you're buying bevvy. See you.
So, you succumbed to temptation, then?
Are you actively stalking me?
No, but I did tell you before, it's kind of a village round here.
Yes, it is.
It's a community and I'm a respected member of it.
How's it going for you on that front?
-I'm working on it.
-You've got a way to go, if you don't mind my saying.
I can handle anything you throw at me, Annie.
Don't let me test your theory with this bottle.
You need a drink to get through
another cosy evening at home with your husband?
Shut your mouth.
You don't know anything about my life.
I know you're still standing in front of me.
I thought the plan was to walk off in the opposite direction.
I'm trying to make you understand.
I understand totally.
No, you don't!
You're married. You're well thought of.
Me, I'm pretty much despised by everyone around here.
OK, then maybe you do.
You don't despise me.
See? That's another thing -
we can be completely honest with each other.
-Oh, come on!
-I'm being serious.
I've been a liar my whole life, but with you?
Not for one second.
Look, I need to go, this is getting us nowhere.
Well, what will?
What will stop it?
The way we feel?
Do we just need to act on it?
Wait, I see, this has been you building up to you saying, what,
that we should get it out of our systems?
No, that's not it at all.
Maybe you can sneak me into the Oyster after it's closed.
I've heard that's a favourite little love nest of yours.
I think we can do better than that.
There is...no "we".
Ah, here he is - the guv'nor, the big cheese, the head honcho.
Is there any lasagne left?
Oh, there is and, let me tell you, it is delish.
You're the boss. Serge, do you mind?
-You're not really picking up on the ego massaging, are you?
-I need some time off.
Next weekend. Or the weekend after that, if that makes life easier.
I'm sure we can sort something out.
The wife wants to whisk me away and who am I to argue?
Just the Saturday to Sunday?
Depends on flights, but Friday to Monday, probably.
That's another story.
Serge can handle it.
Oh, can he? Maybe I should give him the job full-time.
-Look, nothing's been booked yet, so...
So, we'll just wait a while, yeah?
Uh-huh. Is that ready?
Aye, we have been, it's quieter now.
I just wondered if I could have a quick word.
I'm way ahead of you.
I've started putting out feelers to my pals in the council
and if we get them onside,
then they can make life hell for the Murdochs, believe me.
Well, don't sound too enthusiastic!
I just want you to remember
this is about getting Caitlin and the kids home,
not being a stone in Lenny's shoe.
I know. I know.
I won't lose sight of that again, I promise.
I just want to show her how much everybody cares
and when the council sees that, they'll have to do something.
Cheers for the dinner, Ma.
Listen, did I see you pushin' Stella's wean about the day?
Aye, nae doubt. Stella had an appointment.
You're too nice. That's your trouble.
Listen, have you seen your sister lately?
No, no, just being a wee mother hen, you know?
I like to keep an eye on youse all.
Ma, what is it?
That day, after she got back from the hospital,
her and Gabriel seemed a wee bit, you know, close.
He really helped her, didn't he?
Aye, that's right. Why?
No, no, nothing.
I just suppose I always thought they might get it together or something.
Still, it's good she's recovered, isn't it?
Aye. Right, Ma, I better go. See you soon.
All right. You stick to motors. Keep away from those prams.
There's some lasagne, if anybody wants some.
Literally scraps from your table? No, thanks.
Right, where are we with this Team McLean guff?
The old dears won't be taking to the streets, if that's what you mean.
Patrick's a bit chippy, but I can shut him up
and AJ'll do as he's told.
But you've still got the pub and the shop to deal with,
unless you think Jimmy can take Scarlett in hand, obviously. HE LAUGHS
Yeah, this is a laugh a minute, but there's still Donald, still Eileen.
Donald I'm dealing with. The Iron Lady - she'll have to wait.
She nearly put me back behind bars, Dad.
I thought you'd want her head on a silver platter.
Metaphorically speaking, obviously.
Right, let's go for a wee drink, eh?
Show there's no hard feelings.
-Nah, I'm no' in the mood for the pub.
-It's no' an invitation.
That was sensational.
Tres bien, as they say in the parts of Belgium where they speak French.
Sorry, I don't have a clue about Flemish.
Relax, no-one does.
I know you're disappointed about us not getting away,
so I thought I'd bring a bit of Bruges here.
Oh, don't worry about it.
I did try.
-I asked Alex for time off, but no dice.
Did he say why?
Honey, he does own the place.
He doesn't need to explain anything to little old me.
No. No, I suppose not.
We will go. Some other time?
Yeah. Some other time.
I'm such an idiot.
I've got stuff I need to read for tomorrow
and it's only on my PC back at the office.
-You going to be away all night?
I'll transfer the files over to my laptop. Shouldn't take long.
Good, because there's a Belgian chocolate surprise still to come.
-What's the surprise?
-It is not Belgian.
Hurry back, ma cherie amour.
I will. I can't believe I was so stupid.
She's up to something.
Don't let her get to you.
Bit late for that, kid.
I need to be somewhere.
If I go, are you two gonnae turn this place into the Wild West?
They're lucky. I've left my six shooter in my other jacket.
In any other family, that'd be a joke.
Up to something, eh?
She'll let it slip.
How do you know that?
I know her. She won't be able to help herself.
As long as we can get her and Donald off my back.
-Can I get you a drink?
-Take your coat?
-This won't take long.
The thing... You know, what...
What I've come to say.
Why are you smiling?
Because you look so determined, like "I'll show him."
Annie, I didn't expect a "I need to see you" text.
I didn't expect you round my place.
Oh, I'm sending you mixed messages, am I?
I don't know what the hell to think.
Well, then let me make this absolutely clear.
You do not get to mess with my life.
-What do you mean?
-Telling my husband he can't even take any time off.
I mean, of all the low, petty, cheap...
That was a cheap shot
and I'm sorry and I'll apologise to him, too, next chance I get.
I didn't do it to mess with you.
I was jealous.
At the thought of me going away with the man
I've been married to for 20-odd years?
I'm jealous at the thought of you being with anyone but me.
I need to go.
It's not something I've got any control over.
Oh, please, you love it!
Your life is one big melodrama and you are the leading man.
What does that make you?
A foolish woman who thinks that she can change you, of course.
You don't want to change me.
I don't want you at all.
Well, I hope you're more convincing when you lie to your husband.
Let go of me.
Whatever you say.
I need to go.
You said that already.
# I've got chills
# They're multiplying
# And I'm losing control
# Cos the power you're supplying
# Is electrifying
# You'd better shape up
# Cos you need a man
# And my heart is set on you
# You'd better shape up
# You'd better understand
# To my heart, I must be true... #
Tell you what, why don't you keep the change?
Well, do you want me to tell you where you can stick it?
You might want to think about finding a pub
where the folk both sides of the bar don't hate your guts.
You see, that's the thing about popularity -
it ebbs and flows, y'know what I mean?
Do you mind if I shift a few of these?
-It's to save the football team.
-No, of course, on you go.
Put me down for 50 quid's worth.
Don't be too impressed, Drew, he's trying to buy respect
and that never pays off.
My grandson plays for the team. So does Jimmy's wee one.
Yeah, and my son, too - it's a great cause.
Put me down for 50 as well.
It's just a pity that your pals on the council
couldnae find the funding for them,
instead of the boy here having to go round with the begging bowl.
You know what they say - if they're no' bent, they're no use to you.
Someone expanding their property empire
would want to stay in their good books, though.
-Planning permission and all that.
-Seems like sound advice.
You don't know that world the way I do,
-so it's only fair I share my expertise.
What did she say?
More than she knows.
POUNDING MUSIC BLARES, SIREN WAILS
HE TAKES SHALLOW BREATHS
Couple of local neds wanting trouble. I gave them the slip.
How many's a couple?
-They never got anywhere near me, don't worry.
Are you bleeding?
Mum, he's bleeding.
Oh, my God!
One of 'em must have chucked a bottle, but it missed.
I must've got a splinter when it hit the wall.
It could've taken your eye out.
Aye, but it didnae!
I hate it here.
We all do, Ruby.
# There's a heart on the line
# And it rests with your eyes
# Please don't fade and please don't cry
# Cos it's all white lies
# Take a chance
# Watch it fall
# Grab too much
# And lose it all
# Now, I've lost my disguise... #
Honey, are you crying?
I mean, that was...
I've been married since university.
And God knows how many women you've slept with.
It wasn't like that with any of them.
Look, we just had to get it out of our systems
and now we can move on.
Just like that?
Let's not pretend this is some grand romance.
OK, what shall we pretend it is?
We're both adults.
Do I get a kiss goodnight?
You can get a kiss goodbye.
NATURE DOCUMENTARY PLAYS ON TELEVISION
DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES
Hey! Sorry I took so long.
Did you send the file?
Actually, I just did it there... so...
Well, at least that means you can relax for the night.
I'm just going to go and run a bath.
Have you... You lost a button off your blouse, there?
What? Oh, yeah.
There was like a, you know, a loose thread, so I should've fixed it.
Stitch in time and all that.
And all that.
Er, can you sit down for a minute?
-Don't look so scared.
I just want to speak to you.
I'm going to speak to Alex.
I saw the site that you were on.
-I mean, they look amazing, some of them.
So, I thought I'd set Alex straight.
Really, don't. You know, we can go another time.
I'm just going to speak to him, man to man.
AJ, just let it go.
I might not even be able to get a locum anyway, so...
-We can go at the end of the year.
Let's get a four-poster bed.
-Cliche, right, but... could be fun.
Look, I'd better take that bath, I don't want it to get too late.
Why don't you sit down and let me run your bath,
and you can look at the shortlist that I made?
OK, cool. Thanks.
And just to show you that I'm a romantic soul,
I'll even look out that inflatable neck pillow.
What happened to the vase?
And the picture?
Have you been trashing the place?
Maybe it was something I just needed to get out my system.
So, now you're just... sitting there?
Why, did I miss all the excitement?
Looks like Eileen's gonnae try and use the council
-to mess us about.
Is that all you've got to say?
What do you want from me?
-You can act like you give a damn.
-Yeah, but right now I really don't.
Man up, big brother - it was you who told us to play it cool.
Maybe I was wrong.
Maybe we should just let all hell break loose
and see what happens, eh?
# She makes me smile
# She thinks the way I think
# That girl makes me wanna be better
# Took her down Bleecker Street
# Saw she drank the way I drink
# I kissed the sky
# To send the blue a letter
# That girl makes me wanna be a better man
# Yeah, and should she see fit
# Gonna treat her like a real man can
# She's fearless, she's free
# Oh, she is a real live wire
# And that girl
# She's got me feeling so much better
# Oh, you trade all the money in the world
# Just to see this girl's smile
# All the while
# She'll make you feel so much better... #
You back for more?
-You really are a glutton for punishment, aren't you?
I've been thinking.
Oh, good, cos we've been holding our breath.
We should keep things simple. Throw money at the problem.
Eileen will no' be bought off.
Everyone else will. We just need to find their price.
Such a cynic.
You need to keep your head down.
You get Chrome to keep you busy.
You don't get to decide that.
Yes, I do. And no fronts. No third parties.
My record's clean - so I'll get the licence, but you can run it.
Your name above the door.
Afraid so, although I'm considering changing my name to Murdoch,
if that makes you feel better about the whole thing.
Changing your name?
Aren't you a bit old for that?
It's my father's name.
If that's all right with you?
Yeah. Fine, son.
Hello, Eileen Donachie?
Hello. Thanks for getting back to me.
No, today's not out of the question.
I know how busy you are,
so really it's what suits your schedule.
What time's your appointment?
We've got plenty more of them.
Fine. You put another one up
and there'll be a "For Sale" sign next to it five minutes later.
-Whoa! Easy tiger.
-You need to control your staff.
I didn't think it was that big a deal.
-Well, you know now.
Who rattled your cage?
Morning, Doc. You're fairly putting the hours in, eh?
I don't know where you get the energy from.
I like to stay in shape.
-Well, it's working. You look amazing.
-AJ's a lucky guy.
Angel, I'm sure Dr Jandhu isnae working so hard
just to please her husband.
You'd be surprised. I can be quite old-fashioned sometimes.
-See you later.
Thanks, boys, I owe you big-time.
Gonnae stop it? It's no' a problem.
Well, we were gonnae plan my next big event,
but obviously that can wait.
I just didn't want the wean wriggling about
when I was talking to the surgeon about getting my reconstruction.
-On you go, then.
-Not a problem.
-Nae bother at all.
Everything you need is in the bag,
-in the bottom of the pram, all right?
Right, see you later. Bye!
Listen, I wouldnae usually ask,
it's just Eileen's got this councillor coming to meet Caitlin.
-Just go, seriously.
-See you later.
Gie the wee barra a spanner?
I know. I didn't expect him to be there, either.
Look, I'll call you back, eh?
Thanks for coming over so quick.
Summoned by the mighty Lenny Murdoch, what choice did I have?
I didnae just ask you here to pass the time of day.
We're changing the name, but, aye. I'm gonnae buy you out.
No, you're not.
It's a generous offer. Very generous offer.
I'm no' interested.
I'll boost it by five grand, OK? Just as a goodwill gesture.
Lenny, that's my place.
Aye, but it's like football managers, isn't it?
You've taken the club as far as you can.
It's maybe time to give somebody else a go.
What if I say no?
A large chunk of cash goes into Cal's trust fund.
I might have to review that arrangement.
-You'd use Cal?
-It'll be better for him in the long run, Kelly-Marie.
Really. I've checked the books.
Even before the Kennedys, the business wasn't exactly booming.
Well, no, but...
Let's no' kid ourselves on.
Right, well... I'll need to speak to a lawyer.
-Oh, and let's keep the wee bonus to ourselves, eh?
No point telling the taxman about it.
-Right. Well, I've got things to do, so...
Am I interrupting?
No, no, we're done here.
Blood really is thicker than water, eh?
Looks that way.
No. No trouble at all.
Here, mate, I was thinking of something... Bob - Hope.
Bob - Hope.
Bob Hope! Do you get it?
Aye, and Bing sings but Walt disnae.
What's wrong with you?
I'm trying to sort this venue thing out.
Aye, your first million's the hardest.
I'd settle for half of that in cash, but...
What you gonnae buy once you've made your fortune?
Air freshener for a start.
Eurgh! We need to change her.
-It's a piece of cake.
That doesnae smell like cake.
Right, here, you hold her while I get the bag.
-Aye, but be quick.
-You got her?
Aw, that's bowfing, man!
I've got wipes, hold on. Come here.
-Don't worry, Doctor.
-I'm on a scone run for the ladies.
But I, myself, am on a superfood smoothie.
-Made it myself.
-Good for you, Alasdair.
-It had better be.
Hi, Stella, yes.
That's me just back from the thing, the appointment.
-Oh, of course!
-Aye, it went really well.
The consultant was lovely and that, he pure chilled me out, so...
Good. Good. Excellent.
Sorry, I shouldn't be ambushing you in the middle of the street.
No, no. It's not ambushing.
Well, I'll let you go, anyway.
I'm just feeling really good about it.
I'm really pleased for you, genuinely.
-Cheers. See you later.
-How did your workout go this morning?
-Stay away from me.
-I hate myself.
That's a bit melodramatic.
I just failed to pay attention to one of my patients,
cos I couldn't stop looking at you.
I am very easy on the eye.
That's not what I meant.
OK, but you left something at my place. Something personal.
-I don't think I did.
wait until someone else notices it's missing.
Oh, what little game is this we're playing?
None. I'll bring it to you, but we need to be alone.
To talk. Nothing else.
Nothing. I promise, Annie.
Right, come down to the health centre
at the end of the day. No-one should be there.
I spoke to the councillor. He's coming over today.
It's really good of you. Doing all this.
Well, he can't work miracles, but he will take a personal interest.
Talk to the right people, maybe call in a favour.
Thank you so much.
-We need to show him
that the community's rallying round you 100%
and that the Murdochs are no better than slum landlords.
If everyone shows that they're on our side, well...
Exactly. United we stand.
-Oh, right. This.
It's not particularly expensive or anything.
No, not especially.
Well, you've got it back now, anyway.
Thanks. Was there anything else?
You tell me.
You know how I feel.
No, I don't.
I still regret what happened.
I'd thought about it before, me and you. How it would be.
It wasn't what I expected.
Well, I'm sorry to disappoint.
What was it, then?
How it made me feel.
How you made me feel.
If that was supposed to be something just to get out of our system,
it never worked...
-Annie, you still around?
Oh, my God!
Sorry, there was no-one at reception.
-I was just about to leave.
I thought we could grab a drink.
Yeah, yeah, great idea. I could really do with one.
Are you not going to put the alarm on?
Er, no. I mean, it's not working.
-You need to get that fixed.
-I will, I will. Come on.
Wow, you really need a drink, don't you?
Found this in my pocket.
Thanks. I've been looking for that.
Nae bother. What's wrong?
Nothing. It's just been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.
It's caught up with me.
It's bound to.
I'm just being daft.
Away you go and get your drink. You've earned it.
See today? Today was a total pleasure.
Aye, I love the bones of her, don't I?
Stop it, you, you'll set me off.
'Amber's dangerous, Craig.
'Are you sure there's nothing else we can do?'
OK, thanks for letting me know. Bye.
-Thanks for noticing after all these years.
So, what's this? A wee celebration?
I'm just out having a quiet drink with my daughter.
I'd ask you to join us,
but you've got a look on your face that'd turn milk sour.
How did you do it? Threats?
Or just good old-fashioned bribery?
-Don't act the innocent, Amber, it doesn't suit you.
Well, now you're just being nasty.
She should be back in prison.
So, how did you get the police to back off?
That's the justice system, isn't it? It's a law unto itself.
You got to somebody. You always do.
Either you or your wee pet polis will need to prove that,
or you need to watch what you're saying.
How did you manage that?
Guy I know at the golf club.
Since when do you play golf?
He just knew I could swing a club if necessary.
I think I might get another drink.
No' the now. We're gonnae be role models.
What are that pair up to now?
I don't know. But I don't like it.
All right, sweetheart? There you are.
You have got to be kidding me.
You think this changes things?
I don't know. Ask your boy.
Here's one for Ruby, too.
-She doesnae want it.
Cos not everyone gets bought so easy!
-Take it easy, eh?
-Can you no' see what they're doing?
The kids need kit.
And what about my kids?
Have you all forgotten about them?
You make me sick.
Wind your neck in, you!
Don't tell me what to do!
I think your man from the council's here.
Good luck with telling him how everybody hates us.
Our work here is done.
I think you might be right.
You missed all the excitement.
Doesn't look good, that. Disturbance in a pub.
Not good for property values either.
We need to get the licensing committee to look into that.
My friend Cassie, she's seen you around
and she'd really like to meet you.
I'm not here cos I want a date. I'm here cos I want a husband.
I'm finished allowing you to mess me about.
You know, however far my enemies are prepared to go,
I'm always prepared to go that one step further.
Can you not search the cab office?
The man has murdered somebody!
-I'm sorry, but I'm done.
-But will you help me look for Brian?
From now on, if you've got a problem
that requires the police, don't call me.
You're going nowhere.
You don't really need to give me another excuse to shoot you.
