I want you out of my flat now.
I should never have lied about my state of health for the sake of
keeping a roof over my head.
'They're only conditional offers.'
I need to get As in Higher physics and my Advanced Higher biology.
-How was it?
-I didn't even finish it.
Nowhere near, my mind just went blank.
Me, him and Callum are going to get as far away from you as possible.
You'll never see your grandson again.
He's got to go. Go to the hospital, take him a long drive, get it done.
Jimmy will keep you safe. You go and you don't look back.
'Kelly-Marie, she's my kid. What else could I do?'
-You know what I have to do now, don't you?
-I do, aye.
Madonna, will you just put your shoes on?!
-We're going to be late!
-I want Daddy!
-Aye, well, he's no' here!
-When's he coming back?
Soon. I promise!
He'll be back home and we'll all be together.
-Here, pal. I'll help you wi' these.
-I can do it myself!
They're all right. I know they are.
Oh, do you? That's a week now and nothing, no' even
a text to let us know if they're no' lying dead in a ditch somewhere.
It's Jimmy's way of keeping us safe.
-If we don't know anything, Lenny will leave us alone.
-Or maybe he's caught up with them.
-You cannae think like that.
Cannae stop thinking like that!
I don't think she's been sleeping.
Aye, well, I cannae blame her.
At least Lenny's been keeping his distance.
I found this on the doorstep.
Should we tell her?
-How long were you waiting out there for?
-Oh, not long.
You're lucky we have a delivery today, otherwise you would
have been waiting for hours.
So, how can I help you?
I was wondering if you might be looking for any bar staff.
-How old are you?
Well, I work in a cafe part-time, but I need to make more money.
Here's my CV.
Why can't anyone take a compliment in this country?
Sorry, it's just...
-So, are you going to university?
No, I don't. What's the story?
I was going to go, to study medicine, but...
I mean, you say my grades are good,
but I actually didn't get what I needed.
Are you OK?
Sorry. It's all just...
It's fine. Um...
So is it a done deal, or is there still a chance?
It's pretty remote. People would have to pull out.
First of all, it ain't over till it's over, you hear?
And then come back here in a couple of weeks and we'll see what's what.
OK, thank you.
Mr Adams? You are Bob Adams, aren't you?
-Let's just calm down a minute.
-Look, tell Lenny we got his message.
-I don't work for Lenny.
Trying to scare us isnae going to work. We don't know anything.
I don't work for Lenny, I work for Jimmy.
-I'm a lawyer.
-You've talked to him?
-My name's Stephen.
-You're right to be cautious, Mr Adams.
Jimmy asked me to thank you again for that bottle of whisky
you got him for his birthday last year.
Ten-year-old island malt, wasn't it?
So where is he then?
Well, that, I don't know. All I can tell you is he's fine.
And what about Kelly-Marie and Callum?
Safe and well, but, again, that's all the information I have.
Jimmy needs cash, but access to his bank account is problematic.
He doesn't want to leave a paper trail.
-You think I'm going to gie you money?
-Not your own.
The fuse box in the kitchen,
up high on the right, there's some cash in a blue plastic bag,
-rainy day money Jimmy set aside.
Does Jimmy even understand what's going on here?
The kind of danger he's put us in?!
Yes, which is why it's vitally important
you don't tell anyone about this.
Even your mother.
If Lenny Murdoch became aware that Jimmy had made contact,
it would not only endanger Jimmy, it would put you
and your family squarely in the firing line.
You tell Jimmy he needs to come back here
and sort this out for himself, all right?
Morning! Pot of tea here, if you fancy it.
-Did you no' hear me up?
No, sorry, I was out like a light. If I'd known...
I just cannae stop thinking about them.
If there's anything I can do, anything at all...
I don't think I can manage the shop today.
Cannae be doing with folk asking about Kelly-Marie and Cal.
Oh, that's absolutely fine.
I can manage. Now...
Would you like something to eat? Maybe some toast and jam?
No, I'm fine.
You need to keep your strength up.
For what? It's no' as if there's anything I can do to help them.
I'm nae use to anybody.
Whatever life throws at us, we endure, we keep moving.
If anyone's taught me that, it's you, dear.
Right, you drink that up, I'll make a fresh pot before I go.
Is that you, Jenny?
Hi. How did you get on?
Oh, that well?
-Your dad's here.
Look, I've been doing a wee bit of research
about your situation with uni and everything.
Turns out there's these medical foundation courses you can go on,
for folk like you, who have only just missed out or don't have
quite the right subjects or whatever.
They're super-competitive. All the places have gone already.
But with the grades you've got,
there's loads of sciencey courses you could on.
I wrote some of them down.
You're upset, you're disappointed, I get it.
But you still have a real chance to do something with your life.
-Where are you going?
Hello? Yes, that's right.
Can you say that again, please?
Are you sure?
Well, I have...
KNOCK ON WINDOW
I'm going to ask you a question. I'd appreciate an honest answer.
-Where are they?
-I don't know.
I should tell you that lying right now, it's not a good idea.
It's the truth.
Are you trying to tell me that you've no' heard fae them?
Naw! I mean...I havenae.
Do you know what Jimmy done to me?
Well, betrayal doesn't even cover it. You know?
He took away my only grandson.
Now, how would you expect somebody like me
to react to something like that?
-I don't know.
I don't like taking my anger out on...innocent bystanders, OK?
I'm not saying it never happens, nobody's perfect,
but I like to generally get the person that's responsible.
So what you're telling me here right now is that's what you are,
an innocent bystander?
Aye, I suppose.
If that's a lie, then you're responsible.
And believe you me,
this is something you really don't want to be responsible for.
You know, I'd bet if something was to happen to you or your mother,
Jimmy would come running.
Look, I don't know what you want me to do.
I don't know where he is.
Before I lose my patience and do something to grab his attention.
He says he's no' heard fae them.
-You think he's telling the truth?
-Jimmy's no' daft.
The less they know, the better, as far as he's concerned.
Keep an eye on him anyway.
Ma, are you in?
Hello? Who's in there?
It's only me, Ma.
What are you doing here?
Eh... I cannae find my phone.
-Where did you leave it?
-Och, it's probably at the garage.
What's happened? Is it Jimmy?
-Look, if it's bad news, I need to hear it.
-I've got a right to know!
-Nothing's happened, there's no news.
Right, wait a minute.
-Don't gie me it, son! What is it?
Cash he had hidden away.
-He needs it.
He got in touch through a lawyer.
-Aye. He's fine. So is Kelly-Marie and Cal.
But you cannae tell anybody.
Thank the lord.
I don't know where they are, but they're all right.
Are you sure they're safe?
Sure as I can be. But Lenny doesnae know where they are.
How do you know that?
I talked to him. Well, he talked to me.
But you cannae let on that you know anything, do you understand?
Ma, do you hear me?
If Lenny gets wind of this, we're in real bother.
I think so. I don't know.
-It doesn't matter.
No. I need to go.
Stay where you are!
I just got offered a place at Leeds.
I was their first reserve.
They really liked my interview.
Hang on, this is to study medicine, isn't it?
Jenny, that's fantastic. Congratulations! Hoo-hoo!
Is it too early for champagne?
It is, isn't it? Maybe it's not.
-I don't know if I'm going to go.
Well, I mean, for starters, Leeds is in England.
Are you sure you don't want to switch to geography?
Cos you just blew my mind there.
It means tuition fees.
Oh, come on, you can get loans to cover all of that.
And you'll pay that back no bother once you're a doctor.
What's your mum saying?
-I haven't told her.
I need to think this through,
and I don't want her to feel guilty if I can't afford to go.
-Aw, come on, there must be a way.
But just don't tell anyone for now, please. Don't tell my dad.
-Promise me you'll keep this to yourself.
OK, fine, but just so you understand...
giving up on this without a fight is a mistake.
And not just a wee "drop your phone down the lavvy" kind of mistake.
Like a big, humongous,
look back in 20 years' time and hate yourself kind of thing.
Where is it, then?
You need to gie Jimmy a message.
The only thing I need to give Jimmy is his money.
Tell him he needs to get back here or somebody's going to get hurt.
-Lenny's no' messing about.
-What does he know?
Aye, but he's talking about killing somebody to make Jimmy come back.
Can you no' just phone him the now?
That's not how it works.
I'll pass on the message.
So, the money?
Yeah, I was just going to call you back...
Right... So no-one else knows about this?
-You told her?!
She came home when I was getting the money.
For the love of...
Did I no' make it clear that no-one was to know about this?
Look, it wasnae my fault. I did my best.
She knows to keep it to herself, all right?
She'd better. For all our sakes.
What does he need it for - the money?
What do you think?
To get as far fae here as possible.
-What do you want?
-I came by earlier, but you weren't open.
-I was worried.
-Aye, sure you were(!)
-How are you bearing up?
Really? You look terrible, have you not been sleeping?
I suppose it must be hard managing on your own.
You know, if you ever need any help with Madonna...
Oh, aye, cos you're right at the top of my baby-sitting list(!)
Just above the Wicked Witch of the West and the Big Bad Wolf.
All I'm saying is, I'd happily pick her up from school one day.
Is that meant to be a threat?
What? Oh, you really are in a state, aren't you?
The thoughts that must be going through your head.
Your husband, your daughter and your grandson...
To lose them all at once...
you'd never come back from that.
Time for you to leave.
No great loss as far as the rest of the world's concerned, let's be honest.
You're only here cos you don't know where they are.
Cos my Jimmy's got the better of all of yous.
-Oh, you know that for a fact?
-It's obvious, in't it?
-I suppose it must be if you knew where he was hiding.
-Well, I don't.
But you know something?
I know if you don't get out this shop right now,
I'm going to stick this broom... Oh, hiya, darlin'.
Remember what I said.
Only too happy to help.
Are you checking me out?
If you're wanting your motor fixed, I'm all booked up the now.
Really? I'm sure you can fit me in.
I'd make it worth your while.
I just had a lovely chat with your mum.
She tells me Jimmy's safe and well.
No, she never.
I'm pretty sure that's what she said... Maybe I misheard her.
Aye, aye, you must have.
Because no-one's heard from him?
HE SIGHS That's right.
Well, that's a relief, I must say,
cos my dad doesn't take well to being lied to.
Take care now.
-What did you say to her?
You should have heard her but, saying it wouldn't be a great loss if they were all dead.
Ma! What did you say to her?
..I didnae know.
-Are you sure that's all you said?
-Then why did she...?
-Why did she what?
-He's onto us.
-Look, just go home, all right?
-Are you sure?
Aye. Lock the door and stay there.
Please, for me.
Fine, whatever you say.
-Right, I'll come and see you in a bit.
Stephen, it's Bob.
Did you pass the message on to Jimmy?
I need to know what he says. So, phone me back, right?
Ahhh, a treasure trove! Thank you.
-Can I talk to you about something?
-Aye, of course you can.
-What is it?
-The thing is...
Right, I've got 25 quid here, but that's me till I get paid...
-What's going on?
-Eh, we were just...
Are those bills?
It's fine. There's just a couple came in at the same time.
I've got some money saved up...
We've got it under control, so don't you worry, all right?
So, anyway, what did you want to talk about?
Nothing. Doesn't matter.
It must have been something.
..sorry for being stroppy when Dad was round.
You call that being stroppy? Oh, come here. Come here.
Aww! I know how disappointed you are,
but it'll all work out, just you wait.
MUSIC: Moonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller
Patrick, what are you up to?
I need to talk to you about something.
Well, here would be better.
Aye, I'm at the garage.
Right, cheers, mate.
BANGING ON DOOR
-Come on, open up! We need to talk.
Look, you can open it up or I'll bust it open. It's up to you.
BOB TAKES A DEEP BREATH
I asked you a question earlier. Do you remember what it was?
I don't know where he is. I really don't!
You know something, you're a better liar than I gave you credit for.
But your judgment...shocking.
Now, tell me - where Jimmy's hiding?
-Aye, what are you going to do about it?
-Did you forget that bit?
What? What is it?
-Is this switched on?
You did press the record button, didn't you?
-I don't know what you're talking about.
Some secret agent you'd make. Double O Numpty.
You're way out of your depth, son.
So far out it, you're drifting out to sea.
-Please... I don't know where he is.
-You sure about that?
-Look, don't, I'm begging you!
Look, I'm no' wanting any trouble.
Yeah? Well, just turn around and walk away.
It's no' going to happen.
You... You've got till six o'clock this evening to tell me
where Jimmy's hiding, or your next family gathering
is going to be a funeral.
Look...it's me he's got a problem with.
Aye, right! That's me marked.
Look, this really isnae what I need the now.
I'm sorry, mate. I didn't mean to get you involved.
Aye, well, we're family. I'm already involved.
-This is pretty heavy.
-It's going to be all right.
-Once Jimmy hears what Lenny's been saying...
Do you think he's going to give himself up?
He's no' going to let his family get hurt, is he?
This is Jimmy we're talking about.
-How come we haven't we heard anything?
-I don't know.
I've been trying to get hold of his lawyer, but...
Look, can you keep an eye on this place for a bit?
Where are you going?
And, eh, you might want to keep these doors locked.
Is that you, darlin'?
Oh, Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
-I need tae speak to him.
-You cannae go in there!
-Just let us in.
It's all right. It's fine. Close the door.
-What did he say?
-How did you find me?
What did Jimmy say when you passed on the message about Lenny?
-He didn't say anything.
The only message I passed on to Mr Mullen was about me
withdrawing my services.
-What are you talking about?
-I sent him his money.
So he didnae get the message?
I asked you to do one thing and not tell anyone that Jimmy
had made contact, and you couldn't even do that.
At that point, the level of risk became...unacceptable.
-Where is he?
-I don't know, and I don't want to know.
Look, if I don't tell Lenny where Jimmy is by six o'clock,
-What? Run you out of town?
-Do you think this is funny?
I think this is dangerous, very dangerous.
But thankfully no longer my problem.
Please, look, please gonnae just talk to him.
Sorry, not going to happen. You need to leave.
-Not until you speak to him.
or I'm calling the police.
You can relax, Molly isn't in today.
Is everything all right?
-Och, I had a little tumble.
-Let me catch my breath.
-My dear Liz...
I...I was going to go home, but...
..I think I must have twisted my ankle.
-And you banged your head?
-I feel so silly.
-We need to get you into a hospital.
-Oh, no, no, no!
Just a little rest and I'll be right as rain.
At the very least, you need to be seen by a doctor.
-So, what happened?
I'm so embarrassed...
I was dancing, if you can believe it.
Somebody brought in an old record that I used to love.
Dancing? Honestly, you might at least have waited for me!
I'm sorry about earlier on.
Don't be. I didn't mean to put more pressure on you.
The thing is, uni's not for everyone, is it?
-You didn't go, and you did all right.
-I know, but...
And the thing is, I like working. I like being useful.
That'll stand you in good stead whatever you do.
So I was thinking... maybe I could work HERE, for you.
-You want to be a barmaid?
-To begin with.
I thought maybe you could train me up in all the rest of it.
How to be a manager.
Why not? You don't think I could do it?
-No, it's not...
Well, there's so much more you could be doing.
Well, who knows where it could lead?
-What's all this? Do I sense some big exciting news...?
Nothing, it doesn't matter.
Jenny's after a job here, if you can believe that.
Well, she's not getting mine!
-I need to go. Bye!
-See you later.
What just happened here?
I thought you said she was after a job.
It's not my place to say!
Since when has that ever stopped you?
OK, right, Jenny's going to hate me for telling you this,
but I'm going to take one for the team, because that's the right thing
to do and that's just the kind of guy that I am...
-She's been offered a place at Leeds doing medicine.
-Somebody dropped out, she was the first reserve.
-When did this happen?
She says she's not going, she's worried about the money.
She made me promise not to say anything.
Could you maybe have bumped into it without noticing?
Oh, aye - and knocked it haufway across the room?
Or maybe it's one o' they poltergeists, you know what I mean, playing tricks on us or something!
-All right, all right.
-No, it's not all right, Bubba!
-Somebody was in here, in this flat.
-Well, I did say to lock the door.
-Well, I did!
-What if I'd disturbed them?
What if wee Madonna was here?
-Lenny must have sent them.
What are you getting at me for?
I'd have been safer at the shop,
surrounded by witnesses, that's what!
We need to get out of here, all of us... Right now.
Is there something you're no' telling me?
Lenny's gave us until six o'clock to tell him where Jimmy is.
-I'll need to get her fae school.
You're staying right here with me.
Patrick can pick her up and then come get us.
Get packing, just what you can carry.
Now, your arm is going to need X-raying, and your leg, OK?
-I'll call an ambulance.
-No, no, please...
Did you lose consciousness when you fell?
Perhaps, but very briefly.
-Well, you may be concussed.
-Better safe than sorry.
Fine. I'll go, but not in an ambulance.
I don't care how you get there, as long as you don't walk.
Well, I don't think there's much chance of that!
Do you think you could make it to a taxi?
-Yes...with some help.
-Right, I'll go get you one.
It goes without saying, I shall be coming with you.
Oh, but what about the shop? I don't want to bother Molly.
She's got more than enough to contend with just now.
I don't think the world will stop spinning
if the shop is closed for a few hours, do you?
-I said just what you can carry.
-I've got Madonna in the car. Youse ready?
Here, I'll take that.
Come on, we need to go.
-Where is she? Where is Madonna?!
-I've got this, all right?
I'm sure I've got some here, somewhere... Oh, nothing.
Wait a minute...what's this? There you go. That's for you.
Thought she might need a wee bit of spending money.
I heard you were going on holiday.
-Patrick's going to take you home, pal, right?
Cos he is, look, there he's coming.
-Right, Madonna you come with me.
-But I don't want to go home.
-Ma's waiting on you.
-And thank you.
-You're welcome, sweetheart.
I wouldn't go planning any more holidays.
Unless you want some company.
I don't think we should even get into that just now.
We just need to tell her how proud we are of her.
-What's going on?
-Why don't you have a seat?
What were you thinking not telling us?
It's such great news.
Please, just...stop it.
-I'm not going.
-You're worried about the money?
-You'll be fine.
-£9,000 a year just for the fees.
-And it's a five-year course.
-OK, well, that's...
£45,000... plus my living expenses.
Even if I get bursaries,
I could be 70 grand in debt by the time I finish.
-But you get loans, don't you?
-That you have to pay back.
That really is a lot of money.
It's too much, especially when I could be earning, helping,
contributing with the bills around here.
Hey, the last thing you should be doing is worrying about me.
I do worry.
Could you wait a year and try again in Scotland?
-Just let it go.
I know you thought I'd be this big success you could boast about,
but it's just not going to happen!
Thanks a million!
I'm sorry, but what was I supposed to do?
You could have chosen to keep your promise.
You could have chosen to be my friend!
Jenny, come back!
-Is she OK?
-I don't know.
"I say let the world go to hell, but I should always get my tea!"
So what did the doctor say then?
That I have to stay in overnight.
A precaution they call it.
More like a nonsense! It's a waste of a bed.
-I'm sure they know best.
One night's not the end of the world.
Yes, but what if it's not just one night?
Supposing it's just the start?
It happens, you know, eventually.
They take you in and that's it.
All those times with Malcolm and then...
one day he didn't come home.
Shall I see if they've got something to help take your mind off things?
A newspaper, a board game perhaps.
I'm not in the mood for Ludo!
Or I could call Molly.
If you're going to be in for the night, you'll need stuff from home.
Night clothes and such. Molly would be more...
qualified to collect them.
I told you, I don't want her bothered,
or anyone else for that matter!
So what's this about?
I heard about the offer, the place at Leeds.
-Word gets around.
-She absolutely has to take it.
It's not as simple as all that.
-I want to help, financially.
I might not be able to cover all the fees,
but I think I could manage half.
-Who do you think you are?
We're not a charity case!
That's not what this is.
-What's going on?
-She's here about her guilty conscience.
She's got mixed up with those Murdochs
and now she's trying to make up for it.
Are you forgetting who got and your family back in this house when...?
When what? When your boyfriend chucked us out?
-No, I'm not forgetting anything.
I would just want to help you out with your fees or living expenses.
-I can't believe this.
-I've told her you're not a charity case.
You cannot let this opportunity pass you by.
Even if you try again next year, there's no guarantee.
-I think you should go.
You heard her.
The offer stands.
You just want to wave a magic wand and make everything all right.
I mean, can you imagine being in that kind of debt at that age just when you're starting out?
No, but then again, I can never imagine myself being a doctor.
I'm just imagining you as a doctor.
My bedside manner is second to none.
You won't hear any arguments from me.
I know the money makes it seem like a big gamble,
but if anybody can pull it off, it's Jenny.
-She's special, isn't she?
-You know she is.
So maybe don't focus on the problems.
Think of how many people would give their back teeth for this.
Give her a push.
Right... 14 down.
Ten letters, no less!
An arctic grass. E-blank-I-O-blank.
-You went behind my back!
Right, you. Offski!
-If I could just...
-Your services are no longer required.
Away you go, sling your hook, beat it.
Liz, I wish you a speedy recovery.
-What were you thinking?
Not calling me?
Look, we stick to the plan and we get the hell out of here.
-He's gonnae be watching us.
-But if Jimmy can dae it, so can we.
-Jimmy caught him by surprise.
-Aye, I know.
Look, it's too late for that, all right?!
Are we going on holiday or not?
-Is Daddy coming?
-Go and play in your room for a bit.
It's all right, it's all right, pal. On you go.
So, what, we just hang about here until we run out of time?
-Youse need to go.
-But you just said...
-Just go to the pictures or something the now.
-Are you aff yer heid?
After everything that's happened, you want us to sit and watch a film?
You'll be safe there.
Bubba, I don't understand.
It's half-two the now.
If you don't hear from me by five,
if I don't get it sorted, don't come back.
-Bob, what are you talking about?
-Sorted? How can this get sorted?
-You just need to trust me.
-And wait for my phone call.
-Where you going?
-Get moving and keep your phones on.
Ellie. Wait, I want to say sorry.
-Everything. All of it.
-What, just like that?
-You need to know that...
you're an amazing person, Ellie, and the last thing I wanted to do was...
-Bob, what's wrong?
What are you up to?
Don't judge me, I didnae get in till half-three.
Has there been any news about Jimmy or...?
Hey, you all right?
You're a good pal, you know that? The best.
Aye, well... you're not so bad yourself.
I'm sorry I've not been around lately. It's been crazy at work.
-See if you had tae dae something that might...
If you had tae, if you didnae have a choice...
Bob, you're going to have to start finishing your sentences.
Look, just take care of yourself, all right?
Hi, can I have a taxi, please?
Picking up from Central station. Clark.
Aye, as soon as you can, please. Cheers, mate.
Patrick, it's Angus.
There's something up with Bob.
He's just being really weird, I don't know.
Talking about something he had to do,
like he'd never see me again.
SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYS
Lenny. It's Bob...
Bob! You in there?
You want to watch you don't cut yourself with that, wee man.
This ends now.
-What's gonnae happen? You gonnae kill me?
Aye? I don't think you want to do that.
-Do I no', naw?
-Aw, no, cos I don't think you can do it. Can you?
Come on! Come on then!
YOU shouldnae be here.
Bob, listen to me.
If Jimmy was here...
Aye but he's no' here, is he? I'm protecting this family!
-Put it down!
-Get aff me, Patrick!
-I mean it!
-Get out! Move!
Patrick! What do you think you're doing?
Stopping you from making a stupid mistake.
-We've got to get out of here.
-I'm no' running.
You think Lenny's just going to let this go?
I'm sick of being scared of that guy!
I'm sick of my family being scared of him as well!
If we run now, then it'll never be over!
Aye, right, but going at him head-on,
it's never going to work out.
This is Lenny Murdoch we're talking about.
You've got to be smarter than that.
You don't get it, do you? There's just nae time!
So we go, we regroup, and we think about it.
How many times...? I'm no' running!
Well, what about the lawyer?
He said it's not his problem.
-But what if I make it his problem?
-How do you mean?
Bob! Where you going?!
You need to calm down.
You need to phone Jimmy!
I thought I was clear. I've severed all ties with Jimmy Mullen.
I couldn't contact him even if I...
-Dae it the now!
-Let's be sensible about this,
and I won't tell the police what you just did to my door.
You've got two choices, pal.
Help me, or I tell Lenny Murdoch that you're working for Jimmy.
-Hang on a minute!
-Get Jimmy on the phone,
send a smoke signal, carrier pigeon, whatever you need to do,
but you do it right now or I'm going straight to Lenny,
and believe you me, all the polis in the world won't save you then.
(That's 500 for travel and then the accommodation....)
-What are you doing?
-Sit down, would you?
There's no two ways about it.
It's a lot of money, even with Doctor Do-gooder chipping in.
But you only have to pay the loans back
when you're earning good money and, even then,
it's not like you'll go hungry.
It's going to take a while, but you'll manage,
and it's got to be worth it.
It's not even about that.
Are you worried about me and the family?
We've been through this. You cannae let us hold you back. We'll cope.
-But what if I can't cope?
Being so far away from everyone, not having any friends? The whole thing.
If you can cope with our family, you can cope with anything.
You'll be making new friends as soon as you get there,
friends you'll have for the rest of your life.
Everyone's expecting so much from me.
I know, but you're strong, Jenny, stronger than you know.
It's OK to be scared. It's normal, it's healthy.
The biggest and best opportunities never make you feel like
you've won a raffle, they make you feel sick.
-He actually went for you?
-So what now?
I was thinking, maybe we sit down with some tea and biscuits,
come to a peaceful resolution.
You carrying on like a thug
while we're trying to develop legitimate business interests?
Yeah, I'd say that's a problem. Reputation is everything.
Yeah, you cross me, you get done in.
That's my reputation - it's not going to change any time soon.
KNOCKING AT DOOR
-Let him in.
-I want no part of this.
-Open the door.
You can go.
You know, of all the people who've ever come at me with a weapon,
do you know how many are still alive?
Just the one, and it might not be for long.
You know, you should have went to the pictures with your mammy.
There's something you need to see.
We had a wee chat about the old days,
and I wrote down what he said.
Names and dates.
He said they should all be pretty familiar to you. Memorable.
If the polis were to do a wee bit of digging, I reckon what
they'd find would put you away for the rest of your life.
Anything happens to Jimmy or me,
or the rest of my family, a copy of that list goes to the polis.
Now, all things considered,
I really don't think you should be pointing a gun at me right now.
Catch you later.
-I can't take your money.
But I really want to help you.
I'd rather just take out loans like everyone else.
Is this about Alex? Of course it's about him.
-He kicked us out of our home!
-Jenny, Jenny, wait.
You're still thinking about going?
I don't know.
Well, I have this doctor friend, who studied and taught at Leeds.
He's Glasgow-based now but I could put you in touch.
It might help to get the lay of the land.
The way it's all come about, only just scraping in...
What about it?
Do you really think I've got what it takes?
there's going to be kids there who've had advantages that
you could only ever have dreamed about having - private schools,
private tutors, doctors for parents... And guess what?
They only JUST did better than you in their exams.
What you have achieved is 100% you.
When you're there, on an even playing field,
you're going to blow them away.
You really think so?
Without a shadow of a doubt.
Molly, as if you didn't have enough to worry about already.
-I didn't want to make a fuss.
-Why not? I love a fuss.
Truth to tell, the older I get, the less I relish trips to hospital.
Who relishes going to hospitals?
All the sick people, gowns that open up the back,
ten-year-old doctors talking to you
-as though you're not the full shilling.
You know, whenever I used to see an ambulance going by,
I used to imagine all kinds of things that might have
happened to the people inside, accidents and so on.
Whatever lights your candle.
Nowadays, I just think,
"Oh, that'll be another old person like me."
-Oh, you're an awful misery guts!
I think I liked you better when you were down in the dumps.
Well, I think I liked you better when you weren't.
I'm sorry, I think it's just...
not being able to walk properly, it makes me feel...
You've only sprained your ankle, you've not broken your neck.
You'll be up on your feet in no time.
You're right, I know. I know...
Och, we'll be fine.
'Course we will.
A doctor in our family, eh? Who'd have thought it?
-I've got a long way to go yet.
-You'll get there.
You know, see when I was your age, I nearly went to study nursing.
-I bottled it.
Maybe it's not too late.
Finally! I've been waiting all day for this.
Excuse me! EXCUSE ME!
Right, right! Settle down.
(Oh, my God! You are so embarrassing.)
Maybe you could find a uni that's even further away,
like on Mars or something.
To my brilliant wee girl... Naw, to a brilliant young woman -
the first in our family to go to uni. To Jenny!
-I'm so proud of you...
-I really am.
Come here, you!
-She'll be all right.
-And so will you.
What you talking about?
It's not easy letting her go.
You've done well to hide it.
And to the woman who raised her.
Aye, they should be here any minute.
That's them now, hold on.
It's over, it's really over?
-Aw, son! Thank you so much.
And somebody wants to speak to you.
(Is it Jimmy?)
Jimmy? Oh, I'm so glad you're safe.
You want to speak to your daddy? Come on. Aye, she's here!
-Never doubted you for a minute.
Right, I'm gonnae leave youse to it. I need to go and see somebody.
So, youse back on?
I think so.
-See you in a bit.
HE RINGS DOORBELL
'Please leave a message after the tone. '
Hiya, it's me. I just wanted to, eh...
I could really be doing with seeing you or...
just talking to you would be good.
Without corroboration, we won't be able to proceed any further.
What's the point? Why would I make other people relive what he put them through?
You cannae let this Anderson destroy you.
I should never have got into this with you. It's not fair.
-They were trying to force a carer on me.
-We need help.
'I can't do it on my own.'
-There's a singer-songwriter called Vader.
-Why would I be jealous of him? He thinks he's God's gift.
So you won't have a problem if I go out with him.
We both know that that electricity did not go off on its own.
Why are you behaving like such a spoilt jealous brat?
Why are you behaving like a groupie slut?
I'm gonnae tear you a new one. Come here!
