When the blast went off, it was my kids I was thinking about.

0:00:210:00:24

-You need to stay with me until you're well enough.

-Welcome home.

0:00:240:00:26

You're a two-faced, spoiled cow.

0:00:260:00:28

It's Dad. He's super grumpy and he won't let me do anything for him.

0:00:280:00:31

Please will you come and look after my daddy?

0:00:310:00:34

I just wanted to let you all know that my dad died earlier today.

0:00:340:00:37

I haven't had a drink in months.

0:00:370:00:40

You don't care, for us, yourself. Never have done.

0:00:400:00:42

I won't have Ruby watching her stagger about here every

0:00:420:00:44

night of the week. The first sniff of a drink, she's gone.

0:00:440:00:47

You can call me whatever you like.

0:00:500:00:52

Lush, alkie, booze hound.

0:00:520:00:58

It's been 12 weeks and four days since my last drink.

0:01:000:01:04

But before the drinking got out of control, I could burn up a room.

0:01:060:01:11

I was fit and funny and sexy... only no-one remembers that.

0:01:130:01:18

That woman's gone now. And I need tomorrow to be a great day.

0:01:210:01:28

A new start and a new job.

0:01:280:01:31

You all go on about one day at a time.

0:01:320:01:35

And that's what I've been doing, trying,

0:01:350:01:42

but I need tomorrow to be a good day.

0:01:420:01:45

Because if it's not, well, I don't want to even think what I'll do.

FOOTSTEPS ON STAIRS

0:02:110:02:12

Nan - what are you doing?

0:02:150:02:16

I am dancing with my gorgeous grandwean.

0:02:160:02:20

You're all wet.

0:02:220:02:23

No, Ruby - I am on fire!

0:02:230:02:26

Right, I better get a shift on.

0:02:310:02:33

OK.

0:02:330:02:34

Erm, where you off to?

0:02:360:02:38

Job interview.

0:02:390:02:41

Aw, Nan! That's brilliant!

0:02:410:02:42

I'm sure to be a shoo-in for it. Ha!

0:02:420:02:45

Sure to be a shoo-in,

0:02:450:02:46

that sounds really weird when you say it out loud.

0:02:460:02:48

Tell your mum and your Auntie Ellie I'm away to the medical

0:02:480:02:51

centre for the interview.

0:02:510:02:53

Nurse McLean is back in town.

0:02:530:02:55

Right, wish me luck.

0:03:120:03:14

Good luck, Nan.

0:03:140:03:16

I feel sick.

0:03:240:03:26

STUTTER BEGINS TO COME BACK: I'm so...nervous.

0:03:260:03:28

Oh, no. What if I can't...?

0:03:280:03:30

Oh, Bob, I can't even speak! It's a waste of...

0:03:320:03:36

time.

0:03:360:03:38

-You need to calm down. Deep breaths.

-I can't breathe!

0:03:380:03:40

You'll be fine.

0:03:400:03:41

It's not going to...work, Bob.

0:03:410:03:43

-You'll be great!

-Stop it.

0:03:430:03:45

Look, you're amazing. They'd be mad not to take you on.

0:03:450:03:48

-Bob, I...

-Just give yourself a chance.

0:03:480:03:51

Aw, love's wee dream.

0:03:530:03:55

Good luck - not that you'll need it, but. Right?

0:03:570:04:00

Money.

0:04:160:04:17

That's what you asked for.

0:04:180:04:20

-I know.

-So what's the problem?

0:04:200:04:23

Wow, 18 years old!

0:04:260:04:30

Who would have thought somebody so young and attractive as

0:04:300:04:33

me would have a daughter so old?

0:04:330:04:34

Feels like only a week ago you had me running around as Catwoman

0:04:340:04:37

while you were Batgirl.

0:04:370:04:39

Batman.

0:04:390:04:40

Yeah, time flies when you're shipped off to Hogwarts.

0:04:400:04:44

Mine now, Frankie.

0:04:450:04:46

-Right, well, I hope you kept the receipt for it.

-Shut up!

0:04:460:04:50

Hey! Language.

0:04:500:04:52

I made it for you at school.

0:04:540:04:56

D'ye like it?

0:04:560:04:57

No. I love it.

0:04:570:04:59

-(You're the best.

-(And you're the best of the best.)

0:05:000:05:03

Hey, let's have a party!

0:05:060:05:07

No, I told you, no.

0:05:080:05:10

Please!

0:05:100:05:11

No. It's tacky.

0:05:110:05:12

It's your 18th.

0:05:120:05:14

Come on, I promise, it won't be anything too OTT,

0:05:140:05:16

just a few nibbles, and some disco lights...

0:05:160:05:20

No offence, but dancing round a bowl of onion rings with you and

0:05:200:05:23

Auntie Annie sounds like social Kryptonite.

0:05:230:05:26

Hey! Well, you clearly haven't seen my dance moves.

0:05:260:05:29

I can vouch for your mother, she definitely has some dance moves.

0:05:290:05:32

Come on. There'll be cocktails.

0:05:320:05:34

And we can invite a few of your school friends.

0:05:340:05:38

We can text Jules.

0:05:380:05:39

No. It's a dumb idea.

0:05:390:05:42

I know. Why don't we have a father and daughter day?

0:05:450:05:49

You serious?

0:05:490:05:50

Yeah, course I am.

0:05:500:05:52

We could go to the cinema? Or the pub.

0:05:520:05:54

We should go to the pub.

0:05:540:05:56

Frankie, your dad can barely manage the bathroom...

0:05:560:05:59

He's right here. He can speak for himself.

0:05:590:06:01

I was thinking more of a... indoorsy-type day?

0:06:040:06:07

Oh.

0:06:070:06:08

We could lie on the couch.

0:06:080:06:10

Binge-watch a box set.

0:06:100:06:12

Order your favourite takeaway.

0:06:120:06:13

Eat our body weight in chocolate.

0:06:130:06:15

Yay!

0:06:150:06:16

Stay in all day? Great.

0:06:160:06:18

Frankie, we're trying.

0:06:200:06:22

That's good of you. Trying.

0:06:220:06:24

Well, I'll let Annie know that you're up.

0:06:280:06:31

She's doing her best. We both are.

0:06:340:06:37

Well, you've missed my last three birthdays.

0:06:380:06:40

So there's really no point in trying to make this one memorable, is there?

0:06:400:06:43

Frankie. Frankie, get back in here.

0:06:430:06:46

DOOR SLAMS

0:06:460:06:47

-SHE SIGHS

-Women!

0:06:470:06:49

I'll get back to you at the end of the day, all right?

0:06:560:06:59

Maggie, can you just give me two minutes, please?

0:06:590:07:01

Aye, nae worries. I hope you've no' set the bar too high now, wee yin.

0:07:010:07:05

She was asking me questions and I was just sat there looking like...

0:07:050:07:08

Kermit the frog? That's a shame. You'll get used to it.

0:07:080:07:11

Give it a few years,

0:07:110:07:13

you'll be in and out of these interviews like gallus Alice.

0:07:130:07:16

Last of the morning - Maggie.

0:07:160:07:17

Keep the best till last, eh?

0:07:170:07:19

That's what I always do with the strawberry creams.

0:07:190:07:21

Good luck.

0:07:240:07:25

Who needs luck when you've got the face and hands of the Angel Gabriel?

0:07:250:07:29

Where's Alasdair got to?

0:07:370:07:39

I thought we could maybe go for a wee drink at lunchtime today for the...

0:07:420:07:47

On a weekday? Away with yourself.

0:07:470:07:50

I just thought it might be nice to mark...

0:07:500:07:54

How's Hinge and Bracket getting on today?

0:07:540:07:58

Any more of your cheek, Murdoch, and I'll have you across my knee.

0:07:580:08:01

Oh, there's a disturbing thought for this time in the morning.

0:08:010:08:04

By the way, Amber was looking for you, did you see her?

0:08:040:08:08

Unless she was levitating outside our kitchen window whilst we

0:08:080:08:13

were eating our boiled eggs, it's highly unlikely.

0:08:130:08:17

What Molly is trying to say is, no, I haven't seen her.

0:08:170:08:19

But you can tell her I'll be in the shop all day.

0:08:190:08:22

All right.

0:08:220:08:24

Unless you change your mind and we could have that drink?

0:08:260:08:30

Unless you get a shift on,

0:08:300:08:32

we're not going to get anything done.

0:08:320:08:34

You've interviewed well.

0:08:410:08:43

Thanks.

0:08:430:08:44

-Only...

-Only what?

0:08:440:08:46

You were struck off the register.

0:08:460:08:49

I was told after five years I could apply for restoration.

0:08:490:08:52

Yeah, well, you'll be assigned a new case officer and then your

0:08:520:08:56

case will be heard in front of the restoration panel.

0:08:560:08:58

I've been there before.

0:08:580:08:59

Strangers that barely know me playing judge, jury and executioner.

0:08:590:09:04

They'll ask you what you've been doing since you've been struck off.

0:09:060:09:09

Great.

0:09:090:09:10

And how do you feel about the incidents that led to your

0:09:100:09:13

name being removed from the list?

0:09:130:09:15

Absolutely fabulous.

0:09:150:09:16

And can you be sure that something similar won't happen again?

0:09:160:09:19

Spit it out, Doctor, what are you really talking about here?

0:09:190:09:22

Well, you have to demonstrate your commitment to sobriety, long-term.

0:09:230:09:29

I was, no, I AM a brilliant nurse.

0:09:290:09:32

No, I know, and I can see that from your files,

0:09:320:09:34

-but you were struck off for being under the influence of...

-NO. I was struck off for being caught.

0:09:340:09:40

All these years working, in and out of surgeries, and hospitals,

0:09:410:09:44

and I'd watch you doctors coming in absolutely reeking of drink.

0:09:440:09:49

That's not true.

0:09:490:09:51

What about you, Doctor?

0:09:510:09:53

You're in that Tall Ship every other night knocking back the vino.

0:09:530:09:56

Have you taken a breathalyser to see if you're "competent"?

0:09:560:10:00

-Are you implying that I'm...?

-No, no, I'm just saying.

0:10:000:10:02

It only takes one mistake, turning up for work when you

0:10:020:10:06

should've really phoned in sick, and then everything is taken away.

0:10:060:10:10

Have you got weans, Doctor?

0:10:130:10:15

Yes.

0:10:150:10:16

Well, then you should know how hard it was for

0:10:160:10:19

me to get my qualifications.

0:10:190:10:21

I was poring over textbooks for years,

0:10:220:10:26

with one of my kids at my chest, taking double shifts and

0:10:260:10:30

overtime, unpaid, so that the bosses would like me,

0:10:300:10:34

nursing strangers rather than my own two, and then one night, one stupid

0:10:340:10:40

night, I have one drink too many - and everything's just written off.

0:10:400:10:45

That's not true, is it, Maggie? It was more than just one night.

0:10:450:10:49

So am I getting this job or not?

0:10:520:10:54

That's what I thought.

0:10:570:10:59

You might as well put that in the bin.

0:10:590:11:01

-Maggie! Please.

-Aw, just save your breath!

0:11:010:11:03

Oh, look out, Nurse Jackie's on the warpath.

0:11:120:11:16

Doctor, fetch the laughing gas.

0:11:160:11:18

What's that supposed to mean?

0:11:180:11:20

It was a joke.

0:11:200:11:21

-You calling me a joke?

-No! I was...

0:11:210:11:23

Because the only clown I see around here is standing in front of me.

0:11:230:11:26

Maggie! I was trying to...

0:11:260:11:28

You keep your paws to yourself, Peter Galloway.

0:11:280:11:31

Maggie. Don't get your engine all fired up, not in your condition.

0:11:310:11:35

And what condition is that?

0:11:350:11:37

You don't want to be getting all het up,

0:11:370:11:39

might make you want to have a D-R-I-N-K.

0:11:390:11:42

The only thing I want right now is a J-O-B. You understand?

0:11:430:11:48

So, unless you have any idea of how or where I get one,

0:11:480:11:51

I would move out my way.

0:11:510:11:52

Amber Cabs!

0:11:590:12:00

I could speak to Lenny. Put in a good word.

0:12:000:12:02

They're always looking for drivers, you being a woman might help,

0:12:020:12:05

you know?

0:12:050:12:06

And what about a woman with two drink-driving convictions?

0:12:060:12:11

Do you think he'd go for that?

0:12:110:12:13

No. Didn't think so.

0:12:130:12:15

Caitlin. You better get yourself down here, right now.

0:12:330:12:36

That's nice.

0:12:390:12:41

Bin.

0:12:410:12:43

But it's still got the tag on it!

0:12:430:12:45

You could spit peas through it. Cheap tat.

0:12:450:12:48

But that's what we sell - second-hand tat.

0:12:480:12:51

How dare you!

0:12:510:12:54

This is a quality establishment, I won't have you speaking about it

0:12:540:12:58

as though it was some kind of stupid wee junk shop.

0:12:580:13:01

And how dare you?

0:13:010:13:02

I wouldn't be seen in a stupid wee junk shop.

0:13:020:13:05

Might I suggest a few sips of tea to help calm you lovely ladies?

0:13:050:13:09

And might I suggest keeping your snout in your own back yard?

0:13:090:13:13

Oh, the menopause is really taking its toll this morning, isn't it?

0:13:130:13:20

There's no milk in that.

0:13:210:13:22

No, we've run out. I meant to get some.

0:13:220:13:24

But you didn't. Never mind, I'll go and get it.

0:13:240:13:28

It's gorgeous!

0:13:390:13:41

It must've cost you a fortune.

0:13:410:13:42

Yeah, it'll be cheesy beenos for the rest of the year now.

0:13:420:13:45

-It's lovely.

-And it's just my taste. You know me so well.

0:13:450:13:49

Right, are you ready?

0:13:490:13:51

Ready for what?

0:13:510:13:53

For a day of fun with the birthday girl.

0:13:530:13:55

Go on. Go and get ready.

0:13:550:13:56

Day of fun?

0:13:580:14:00

Yeah. Well, I've managed to negotiate three tours of Syria.

0:14:000:14:03

I think I can manage an all-day breakfast down the Oyster.

0:14:030:14:05

Do you think that's a good idea, Greig?

0:14:050:14:07

No offence, Annie, but I don't think you're the right person to be

0:14:070:14:10

giving out parental advice.

0:14:100:14:12

Thanks for that, it was actually medical advice I was giving you.

0:14:120:14:14

OK, look, if we're going to go out and have

0:14:140:14:16

a fun day, I need some time to get Katie ready.

0:14:160:14:19

No, I just thought it'd be me and Frankie.

0:14:190:14:21

Oh.

0:14:230:14:25

It's just, I think I need this.

0:14:250:14:28

I've missed out on too much.

0:14:280:14:29

A little bit of father and daughter time will...

0:14:290:14:32

Push Lorna further out the picture. Yeah, it will.

0:14:320:14:34

That's not what's going on here.

0:14:340:14:36

Have you not seen the way she looks at me?

0:14:360:14:38

She hates me.

0:14:380:14:39

Look, she doesn't hate you.

0:14:390:14:41

She's a teenager. She hates everyone.

0:14:410:14:43

She's just not happy at the minute, and she listens to me.

0:14:430:14:46

Yeah, when you're there.

0:14:460:14:47

I think we both know why there's no party - because there's nobody to invite.

0:14:490:14:53

Let me just take her out, talk to her and find out what's up with her.

0:14:530:14:56

Fine. But you better have her back for tea-time

0:14:560:14:58

because I've got Robbie coming over for a cocktail masterclass.

0:14:580:15:01

You're not the only one with surprises up your sleeve.

0:15:010:15:04

DOORBELL RINGS

0:15:040:15:06

We expecting anyone?

0:15:060:15:07

See, if you keep scowling like that you're going to end up needing Botox.

0:15:120:15:16

OK. One Alex Murdoch, ready for duty.

0:15:160:15:19

Duty? What's going on?

0:15:190:15:22

Right, we ready? See you later.

0:15:230:15:27

-You couldn't help yourself, could you?

-Go easy on her.

0:15:290:15:31

This is me going easy.

0:15:310:15:33

I'm surprised you're willing to lose your licence, serving her this early in the day.

0:15:330:15:36

Sorry, what's this all about?

0:15:360:15:38

I think my lassies have just come over to congratulate

0:15:380:15:41

me on my new job.

0:15:410:15:42

Your what?

0:15:420:15:44

-You're working here?

-No.

0:15:440:15:46

I'm a new art installation - Woman With A Bottle of Furniture Polish.

0:15:460:15:50

What do you think?

0:15:500:15:52

I thought you were cutting back on staff.

0:15:520:15:54

To keep my job I had to jump over obstacles like I was on The Krypton Factor.

0:15:540:15:57

You're getting off the point a bit, Caitlin.

0:15:570:15:59

You couldnae be a cleaner!

0:15:590:16:00

You should've seen the state of her skirting boards before I moved into that house!

0:16:000:16:04

What's that supposed to mean?

0:16:040:16:06

I'll just let you get on with it, shall I?

0:16:060:16:08

What happened with the surgery?

0:16:120:16:14

Appears that second chances don't apply to the medical profession.

0:16:140:16:17

Mum, are you sure you're ready for this? Working in a pub?

0:16:190:16:21

Ellie, if I wanted a drink, I could get it like that.

0:16:210:16:24

Here's no different from anywhere else.

0:16:240:16:26

No. No way.

0:16:260:16:28

She's got a point, Caitlin.

0:16:280:16:31

Lassies, this is not up for discussion.

0:16:310:16:33

Now, if you don't mind, I have a lavvie that's not seen

0:16:330:16:37

the remarkable shine effect of the McLean Elbow Grease System.

0:16:370:16:40

-Mummy?

-What?

0:16:420:16:44

I'm really proud of you. We both are.

0:16:440:16:46

-Eh, Caitlin?

-So long as she doesn't start tipping her mouth under the optics, aye.

0:16:470:16:51

I'm delighted.

0:16:510:16:52

What? I'm just being honest.

0:16:540:16:56

Heaven forbid that you try and be supportive.

0:16:560:17:00

You can't help yourself, can you? All she wants is our support.

0:17:000:17:03

No, Ellie. All she wants is a drink.

0:17:030:17:04

Well, it's safe to say we've helped her there.

0:17:040:17:07

I'm wasting my time here.

0:17:070:17:08

Where you going?

0:17:080:17:09

To bury my head in some books. You can look after her for a change.

0:17:090:17:12

DOOR OPENS

0:17:140:17:15

Oh, you shouldn't have bothered, hen.

0:17:170:17:19

But for future reference, I prefer white roses.

0:17:190:17:23

They're for Liz.

0:17:230:17:24

It's not her birthday, is it?

0:17:240:17:26

Ladies of our age don't have birthdays, Alasdair.

0:17:260:17:29

We have anniversaries of our 40th birthday. No - it's not her...

0:17:290:17:33

Can you take them for her?

0:17:330:17:35

Oh, no.

0:17:390:17:40

I just wanted to let her know I was thinking of her.

0:17:400:17:43

What is it?

0:17:430:17:45

It's been a year - since we buried Malcolm.

0:17:450:17:49

You'd have thought you would have remembered that, Alasdair.

0:17:500:17:53

-I'll be sure to get them to her.

-Thanks.

0:17:550:17:58

What are you doing?

0:18:010:18:03

Putting these in water.

0:18:030:18:04

Mind you, they'd last longer if we had some lemonade to add to the vase.

0:18:040:18:08

Never mind that, Monty Don, we have other things to be getting on with.

0:18:080:18:14

Like what?

0:18:140:18:15

I could get used to this.

0:18:210:18:23

Well, if it's going to become a regular thing, you better start cutting back on the pies, mate.

0:18:230:18:26

Aye, all right.

0:18:260:18:28

Give us a smile?

0:18:280:18:29

AJ, you sound like the meercat advert.

0:18:370:18:39

That ees what I'm ehming fur.

0:18:390:18:41

Did you do all this?

0:18:430:18:44

It's only once that you turn 18, eh?

0:18:440:18:46

Cheers, AJ.

# Happy birthday to you

0:18:530:18:54

# Happy birthday to you... #

0:18:540:18:56

Blow out your candle.

0:18:560:18:57

If this is too much for you, you just need to say.

0:19:020:19:04

It's all right, I've got my minder with me.

0:19:040:19:08

CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS

0:19:080:19:09

Sit down.

0:19:170:19:18

-Do you want anything?

-No.

0:19:180:19:20

Coffee? Tea? Me?

0:19:200:19:22

Oh, no, are you at it again?

0:19:240:19:26

-What?

-Have you taken your medication?

0:19:260:19:29

Course I have.

0:19:290:19:30

Well, what are you doing, then?

0:19:300:19:31

It's my turn.

0:19:330:19:34

Sorry.

0:19:340:19:36

Hey, hey. What's the matter?

0:19:360:19:38

I don't know. I feel stupid.

0:19:390:19:42

Aw, darlin'.

0:19:420:19:44

Gonnae take that off? You look like Mrs Doubtfire.

0:19:440:19:47

And the gloves.

0:19:490:19:51

Anything else?

0:19:520:19:54

No.

0:19:540:19:56

Come here.

0:19:570:19:58

You were right. She was in the pub.

0:20:020:20:04

I shouldn't have phoned you.

0:20:060:20:08

But when I saw her going in, I didn't know what to do.

0:20:080:20:11

She's not drunk, it's worse.

0:20:110:20:13

Worse?

0:20:130:20:14

She's working there.

0:20:140:20:16

Well, how's that worse? Surely, it's a good sign.

0:20:160:20:18

No, Pete. Getting a job in a pub.

0:20:180:20:20

She's surrounding herself with temptation.

0:20:200:20:23

She'll slip up one day and drink that place dry.

0:20:230:20:26

Make a clown of herself.

0:20:260:20:28

-She might not.

-She will, you know she will. She cannae help herself.

0:20:280:20:32

Look, Maggie and me are not exactly bosom buddies.

0:20:320:20:35

But even I can see she's trying to sort her life out.

0:20:350:20:40

You're not getting this. I've seen this before.

0:20:400:20:44

She'll say she's fine,

0:20:440:20:45

she's got her new job, and she'll think she's coping all right.

0:20:450:20:48

And then it'll get too much for her. And the worst part is the hope.

0:20:480:20:52

The hope that she's actually all right, it kills me.

0:20:520:20:56

Because no matter how much I want everything to be all right,

0:20:560:20:59

I know she's going to hit that bottle again.

0:20:590:21:01

How many chances have you given me?

0:21:030:21:06

Too many.

0:21:060:21:08

Do you not think that maybe she deserves the same?

0:21:090:21:12

What's Ellie saying to all this?

0:21:140:21:16

The usual. "Gie ma maw a chance."

0:21:160:21:18

-I've told her she can deal with it for a change.

-Good.

0:21:180:21:22

She tells lies for her.

0:21:220:21:23

She doesn't mean to.

0:21:240:21:26

Aye, she does. But I don't blame her.

0:21:260:21:30

I used to do the same myself.

0:21:300:21:31

But I'm finished with that.

0:21:310:21:33

I mean, one foot wrong, one drink,

0:21:330:21:35

I'm putting her out. I mean it.

0:21:350:21:37

You hosting a Come Dine With Me or something?

0:21:400:21:44

Wee lunch with Ellie to celebrate my new job at the Tall Ship.

0:21:440:21:47

Oh, here, I've got the very thing.

0:21:470:21:48

Cut-doon price. Ten quid. And it's none of your rubbish, neither.

0:21:510:21:54

Nothing says celebration like a wee bottle of bubbles.

0:21:540:21:56

Och, I'm not even sure if Ellie likes that stuff.

0:21:560:21:58

Are you kidding me? If it's fizzing, you're winning.

0:21:580:22:01

It's a wee bit early in the day for it.

0:22:010:22:03

Early for what? Enjoying yourself with your lassies?

0:22:030:22:05

See, if my Kelly-Marie was here, I'd be flipping that closed sign,

0:22:050:22:08

we'd be rattling through a crate of that right now.

0:22:080:22:11

Aye, you never appreciate how long you've got your weans around you, do you?

0:22:110:22:14

Aye. I missed the bones of mine when I was in Spain.

0:22:140:22:17

All the more reason to spoil them rotten the now, eh?

0:22:170:22:20

What do you say? Cheeky wee bottle?

0:22:200:22:22

-Maybe another time.

-Suit yourself.

0:22:230:22:26

Right... Oh.

0:22:260:22:28

So, she looks down at me, with this exam paper in her hand,

0:22:310:22:34

which was a total joke to begin with, and she says to me,

0:22:340:22:37

"Francesca. Do you know what this is?"

0:22:370:22:40

That's scarily good.

0:22:400:22:42

I know. "Francesca, do you know what this is?"

0:22:420:22:44

And I say, "Your hand?"

0:22:440:22:46

And she says, "No, Francesca, this is your future.

0:22:460:22:50

"And do you know what your future looks like?"

0:22:500:22:53

And I say, "Sweaty and covered in liver spots?"

0:22:530:22:56

Exactly. Thank you. It is funny.

0:22:560:22:58

No, that is funny.

0:22:580:23:00

Yet Mum threw a total whitey when they phoned her up to tell her.

0:23:000:23:03

Yeah, but she's your mum, she worries about you.

0:23:030:23:05

No, she worries how she looks.

0:23:050:23:07

Frankie, that's not the way...

0:23:070:23:09

-I've been trying to phone you all morning.

-Why?

0:23:090:23:11

You made it perfectly clear that - what was the phrase? -

0:23:110:23:14

you don't want to be within a hundred feet of

0:23:140:23:16

me else you'll rip your nails down my face.

0:23:160:23:18

I never chose to be your lab partner but if we're both to pass I

0:23:180:23:21

need you to send me your results.

0:23:210:23:23

There. Sent. Bye.

0:23:260:23:30

Why didn't you send it last night when you were supposed to?

0:23:300:23:33

Because I was busy. Like I am now.

0:23:330:23:36

Bye.

0:23:370:23:38

So, anyway, I was standing there like a...

0:23:410:23:43

Why did you just do that?

0:23:430:23:45

Do what?

0:23:450:23:46

Speak to her like that.

0:23:460:23:48

You sit here with me and you're funny, you're smart...

0:23:490:23:53

..you're a kind girl, Frankie.

0:23:540:23:56

Why don't you let people like Jules see who you really are?

0:23:560:23:59

Or your mum, for that matter?

0:23:590:24:01

-I do.

-No, you don't.

0:24:010:24:03

Maybe... you're the only one I like.

0:24:040:24:07

I'm being serious, Frankie. I just don't get what the issue is.

0:24:070:24:11

Right, what's next?

0:24:110:24:12

We could phone a taxi - go into town, there's that new film on at

0:24:120:24:16

the Imax.

0:24:160:24:17

Yeah, well, look, I'm not quite so sure that town is a good idea.

0:24:170:24:21

It's just your mum and Ellie, they've got me on such

0:24:210:24:24

a short leash as it is.

0:24:240:24:26

Anyway, I don't know about you, but I think it is time

0:24:260:24:30

that you had your first alcoholic drink.

0:24:300:24:32

What do you reckon?

0:24:320:24:34

I reckon it's not my first.

0:24:340:24:36

I reckon you shouldn't let your mother hear you say that.

0:24:360:24:38

I know what I want to do.

0:24:380:24:39

All right, slow down, come on...

0:24:390:24:42

Something, something...

0:24:450:24:48

DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES

0:24:540:24:55

Is that you, Ellie?

0:24:550:24:57

Just me, Nan, need to get my travelcard.

0:25:010:25:04

Stay for lunch with your Auntie Ellie and I.

0:25:040:25:06

What is it?

0:25:060:25:07

I've always been a dab hand at a la carte.

0:25:120:25:15

I think I'll just go to the chippie.

0:25:150:25:17

Oh, you cheeky!

0:25:170:25:18

Nan, something's spilled all over...

0:25:240:25:27

Uch, it's all right, I'll get it!

0:25:270:25:29

Uch, you put the bottle in the wrong way.

0:25:320:25:35

I... I come here occasionally...

0:26:070:26:12

I find it a spot that helps me to contemplate.

0:26:130:26:16

It's a good spot to die of hypothermia.

0:26:180:26:21

I'm not in the mood today, Molly.

0:26:220:26:25

You've had me and Alasdair worried sick.

0:26:250:26:28

Out for a pint of milk, never to return.

0:26:280:26:30

Mind you, my Brian was the same, of course, he was always at the pub.

0:26:310:26:36

You're like ice.

0:26:390:26:41

I don't care.

0:26:410:26:42

But you should care. Malcolm would.

0:26:420:26:46

You remembered?

0:26:500:26:52

Of course I dinnae.

0:26:520:26:53

If I remembered every time Tom, Dick or Harry passed away,

0:26:550:26:59

I'd never have my funeral frock off.

0:26:590:27:01

Aye, but he wasn't just any old Tom, Dick or Harry.

0:27:030:27:06

I know!

0:27:060:27:08

Come on. Let's get you...

0:27:090:27:12

Listen, I said I wasn't in the mood to work today.

0:27:120:27:16

Work? Who said anything about going back to work?

0:27:160:27:20

No, you're all right, thanks.

0:27:290:27:31

I'm not eating an ice lolly in this weather.

0:27:310:27:33

I like it. Do you remember when we went to Skye?

0:27:330:27:37

How could I forget?

0:27:390:27:40

It was as cold as a brass monkey's...

0:27:400:27:42

You and me sat on the beach and ate...

0:27:420:27:45

Ice lollies. Yeah, I remember.

0:27:460:27:49

Mum complaining it was too cold. As always.

0:27:500:27:54

She sat in the teashop, left us to it.

0:27:540:27:56

That's not exactly how it was, Frankie.

0:27:570:28:00

You wanted to go and play down on the sand.

0:28:000:28:02

She couldn't manage with the pram so she let us go down instead.

0:28:020:28:05

What about when we visited Gran in Ballymena? All she did was whinge.

0:28:050:28:10

She was just out of hospital with your sister.

0:28:100:28:12

She'd just had a C section.

0:28:120:28:14

She was in a lot of pain.

0:28:140:28:15

-Frankie, you seem to be painting your mother as some sort of...

-Do you love her?

0:28:170:28:20

Course I do.

0:28:230:28:24

Why?

0:28:240:28:25

Frankie, what's this all about?

0:28:280:28:31

I'm just trying to figure out why you keep leaving.

0:28:310:28:34

I didn't leave, I was fighting for my...

0:28:350:28:38

Your country, right. Not for us, though, eh, Dad?

0:28:380:28:41

Oh, I don't blame you, don't worry.

0:28:440:28:47

I can hardly bear to be in the same house as her, either.

0:28:470:28:50

-Frankie, have a seat. Come on...

-Come on, time for my birthday drink.

0:28:520:28:57

Hold up.

0:29:010:29:03

I'm not blowing my own trumpet, but Delia would kill to cook with me.

0:29:120:29:15

It's nice.

0:29:150:29:17

Don't patronise me, Ellie.

0:29:180:29:20

If you don't like it, I'd rather you be honest and say.

0:29:200:29:23

I do. It's fine.

0:29:230:29:24

Fine?

0:29:240:29:26

It's lovely. Delicious.

0:29:260:29:28

Told you.

0:29:280:29:30

So... How was your first day?

0:29:340:29:35

Good, actually.

0:29:350:29:37

Suzie wants me to go back over after lunch,

0:29:370:29:39

and have a wee chat about my trial.

0:29:390:29:41

I'm telling you, you will not get a cleaner toilet than...

0:29:420:29:46

What is it, wee yin?

0:29:470:29:49

Nothing.

0:29:490:29:50

Mum, we've never spoken about what happened in Spain.

0:29:530:29:55

What about it?

0:29:570:29:58

When you were working in the pub.

0:29:580:30:00

We both agreed that we wouldn't mention that wee blip.

0:30:000:30:03

It was more than a blip, Mum, eh? You know that.

0:30:030:30:06

This was supposed to be my fresh start. No judgment. Your words.

0:30:060:30:11

Or was that just all rubbish,

0:30:110:30:13

said to make me give up my life over there?

0:30:130:30:15

No, of course not.

0:30:150:30:17

You've always looked out for me. And I'm thankful for it.

0:30:170:30:20

-You know that, don't you?

-Uh-huh.

0:30:200:30:22

You do believe I can quit the drink, don't you?

0:30:320:30:36

Aye, course I do.

0:30:360:30:38

Good girl.

0:30:390:30:40

Right. I better get over before Rula Lenska takes an Annie Laurie.

0:30:400:30:45

Coming through.

0:30:520:30:55

Oh, easy.

0:30:550:30:56

Ooh. You want to watch where you're going?

0:31:000:31:03

-Sorry.

-Slow down, Frankie.

0:31:030:31:05

Does it not bother you?

0:31:140:31:16

-What?

-Them, all staring.

0:31:180:31:21

Since when have we been bothered by a wee bit of attention?

0:31:220:31:25

It happens to Katie all the time and now you.

0:31:250:31:27

Yeah. And do you hear her complaining about it?

0:31:270:31:29

No, but I hate it.

0:31:290:31:30

Anyway, I can tell what they're saying.

0:31:320:31:34

What?

0:31:340:31:36

They taught me how to lip-read in the Army.

0:31:360:31:37

-Shut up.

-They did.

0:31:370:31:39

See the big fella over there at the bar, he's saying,

0:31:390:31:43

"What's such a hot buck of a man doing with such a sour-faced Sue?"

0:31:430:31:47

Do you want this drink or not?

0:31:510:31:52

I'll go.

0:31:520:31:53

No, no. No, I've waited 18 years to buy my girl a drink.

0:31:530:31:58

This one's on me. What do you fancy?

0:31:580:32:01

Gin and fresh orange.

0:32:010:32:03

Gin? That never ends well.

0:32:030:32:05

Sorry.

0:32:140:32:15

Ellie, will you do us a wee favour - go to the bar and get us

0:32:160:32:19

a couple of drinks?

0:32:190:32:21

-Get us a gin and orange and a pint, please?

-I'm in a hurry.

0:32:210:32:23

-And anyway, you shouldn't be drinking on your medication.

-It's only one pint.

0:32:230:32:27

It's one pint too many.

0:32:270:32:28

Please.

0:32:280:32:29

OK. But you didn't get it from me.

0:32:320:32:34

It'll be our little secret.

0:32:340:32:36

There's been a lot of those today.

0:32:360:32:38

I thought we were going for a drink?

0:32:410:32:42

We are.

0:32:420:32:43

So, why are we here, then?

0:32:430:32:45

Because I wanted you to see something.

0:32:450:32:48

It was Alasdair's idea. Declare it a national holiday.

0:32:540:32:58

Malcolm Memorial Day.

0:32:580:33:01

Aw, he would love that.

0:33:010:33:03

Aye. It felt right.

0:33:030:33:05

Malcolm always did like a wee swally in the Ship.

0:33:060:33:09

Where's my mum?

0:33:150:33:16

She's in the cellar.

0:33:160:33:17

Listen, she can't work here.

0:33:190:33:21

-Why not?

-It's the wrong place, she's not right for it.

0:33:210:33:25

I see what's going on here.

0:33:250:33:26

You're ashamed that she's a cleaner.

0:33:260:33:29

No, no, it's not that.

0:33:290:33:30

Of course it is, and quite frankly the condescension is

0:33:300:33:35

stomach churning.

0:33:350:33:36

Your mother is a very...

0:33:360:33:38

She's an alcoholic.

0:33:380:33:39

And I think she's drinking again.

0:33:400:33:42

And you think she'd do that by choosing to work in a pub?

0:33:420:33:45

How can she ever be expected to improve when you are all

0:33:450:33:49

planning for her to fail?

0:33:490:33:51

Because she's done it before! In Spain.

0:33:510:33:55

Working in a pub.

0:33:550:33:56

Oh.

0:33:560:33:57

She used to send me messages, you know.

0:33:590:34:02

"Two weeks and not a drop, aren't I doing well, wee yin?"

0:34:020:34:05

Eight weeks. 15. 26. 31 weeks. Same message.

0:34:060:34:12

And then, I get the call, at Christmas.

0:34:120:34:14

When I got to the hospital out there...

0:34:160:34:19

I could tell just by looking at her.

0:34:190:34:21

All those texts - lies. She hadn't stopped.

0:34:220:34:27

She'd just got better at hiding it.

0:34:270:34:30

The doctors reckoned she was half a bottle away from drinking herself to death.

0:34:300:34:33

Caitlin never mentioned this.

0:34:340:34:35

I never told Caitlin.

0:34:350:34:37

She has the right to know.

0:34:370:34:39

I've had this two or three times to deal with.

0:34:390:34:42

Caitlin's been dealing with this her whole life.

0:34:420:34:44

You can't expect Maggie to sit in the house all day doing nothing.

0:34:440:34:48

Boredom's what drives people to drink.

0:34:480:34:51

Inactivity. With a job, she has purpose.

0:34:510:34:55

No. She's got access.

0:34:550:34:58

I'll keep an eye on her, Ellie.

0:34:580:35:00

It won't be enough. Look, I could smell drink in the house today.

0:35:000:35:02

You should try trusting her. I do.

0:35:050:35:08

To Malcolm.

0:35:170:35:18

-Malcolm.

-Malcolm.

0:35:190:35:21

Oh, ho, ho, ho. That'll put hairs on your chest.

0:35:230:35:28

Are you all right, Dad?

0:35:360:35:38

Aye, I'm all right.

0:35:380:35:40

What?

0:35:410:35:42

Nothing, it's just... I never really thought about the...you know.

0:35:430:35:48

What?

0:35:480:35:50

The toilet.

0:35:500:35:51

Oh. Right. Do you want me to go and get Ellie?

0:35:510:35:54

No, no, I'll be fine, we'll finish these and then we'll head on, yeah?

0:35:540:36:00

Are you sure you're all right, drinking that? A full pint?

0:36:000:36:03

Glad you find it funny.

0:36:030:36:04

TEXT ALERT

0:36:040:36:06

What's up?

0:36:100:36:11

It's Jules! She's at the close.

0:36:110:36:14

Well, if she wants a fight, she can have one.

0:36:140:36:16

What? Frankie...hold on a second. Frankie!

0:36:160:36:21

Frankie!

0:36:240:36:25

-Excuse me, mate? Will you give us a wee hand, please?

-Aye, no problem.

0:36:290:36:32

Take that.

0:36:320:36:34

Go on, yep, yep.

0:36:380:36:39

Cheers.

0:36:400:36:42

-That's you.

-Yep.

0:36:430:36:44

Come on, then, boss. Put me out my misery.

0:36:480:36:51

Same time tomorrow?

0:36:510:36:52

Same time tomorrow.

0:36:520:36:54

You know, I don't care what the rest of them around here say about

0:36:540:36:57

you, as far as I'm concerned, you are a diamond of a doll.

0:36:570:37:01

What do they say? Oh, never mind. And here.

0:37:040:37:09

What's that for?

0:37:100:37:12

-For today. Go buy yourself something nice with it.

-Aw, thanks.

0:37:120:37:17

-Right, come on, then.

-That e-mail was blank.

0:37:400:37:42

I won't do your work for you, Frankie.

0:37:420:37:43

Are you still going on about this boring science test?

0:37:430:37:46

-You said you would.

-You said we were mates and look how that worked out.

0:37:460:37:49

Because you slept with Drew!

0:37:490:37:50

I did you a favour!

0:37:500:37:52

No, Frankie, you filmed it.

0:37:520:37:53

It was the only way I knew you'd believe me.

0:37:530:37:56

Drew was using you and you were too doe-eyed and loved up to see it.

0:37:560:37:59

-Don't you care about failing?

-No, not really.

0:37:590:38:01

We can't all be Little Miss Perfect with top grades.

0:38:010:38:04

Guess you're going to have to tell Mumsy and Dadsy that

0:38:040:38:07

you're a let-down like the rest of us.

0:38:070:38:09

It's nice to see so many people have turned up for Malcolm, eh?

0:38:110:38:13

And for Liz.

0:38:130:38:15

Cash up front?

0:38:150:38:16

The auld witch wouldn't sub me last week when I asked.

0:38:160:38:19

I better go, right.

0:38:190:38:21

You should try and get on the boss's good side.

0:38:210:38:23

And not calling her a witch might be a good start, too.

0:38:230:38:26

Maggie. A word, please.

0:38:290:38:31

-I was just going to...

-Now.

0:38:310:38:33

You don't know anything about me or my family.

0:38:380:38:41

Perfect? There's nothing perfect about my life.

0:38:410:38:44

You think you've got it hard because Mummy and you don't see eye to eye?

0:38:440:38:47

Big deal! At least you've got a mum and a dad.

0:38:470:38:50

Aw. Do you need a little tissue there, Jules?

0:38:500:38:53

You have no idea what it's like for me.

0:38:530:38:56

-You and Drew were the only two things I thought I could count on.

-That was stupid of you, wasn't it?

0:38:560:39:00

You ruin everything, Frankie. Me and Drew. Me and you.

0:39:000:39:03

Your dad came home for Christmas and what did you do?

0:39:030:39:05

Push him away, and look how that turned out.

0:39:050:39:07

-He's like that because of you.

-Hoi, you two.

0:39:070:39:11

Thanks, mate. Quit it, I said that is enough!

0:39:110:39:16

See, if I could, I would bang the pair of your thick skulls together.

0:39:160:39:20

Francesca Louise, as God is my witness, I would have dragged you up

0:39:200:39:24

them stairs by the scruff of your neck and straight into your room.

0:39:240:39:28

But lucky for you, I can't. Well, can I?

0:39:280:39:31

Can I?

0:39:320:39:33

I won't beat about the bush, there was a presentation bottle of malt

0:39:410:39:45

whisky given to me by the brewers, as a thank you, worth almost £200.

0:39:450:39:51

Oh, I saw it. It's on the living room table.

0:39:510:39:53

The box is there, but the bottle has gone.

0:39:550:39:57

So, you thought you'd ask Shieldinch's resident drunk

0:39:570:40:00

if she'd half-inched it?

0:40:000:40:02

I'm only trying to ascertain...

0:40:020:40:04

Ascertain?

0:40:040:40:05

Listen to the Queen of Sheba.

0:40:050:40:06

Mouth filled up with the Oxford Dictionary.

0:40:060:40:08

Yet not an ounce of sense in her heid. Are you calling me...?

0:40:080:40:11

She might be a drunk but my mother's no thief.

0:40:110:40:13

That's for sure.

0:40:130:40:15

Then you won't mind my searching your bag?

0:40:150:40:17

You're not searching nothing. I...

0:40:170:40:19

Search away. She's nothing to hide.

0:40:190:40:21

Nothing indeed.

0:40:330:40:34

I didn't put that there!

0:40:340:40:36

Aye, right.

0:40:360:40:37

I swear.

0:40:370:40:38

Save it.

0:40:380:40:39

You've got this wrong.

0:40:410:40:42

I doubt it.

0:40:430:40:44

Frankie - have you done the work for the assessment?

0:40:470:40:49

Dad, I don't see how this is...

0:40:490:40:50

A simple yes or no, please?

0:40:500:40:53

Yes.

0:40:530:40:54

Right, well, then, e-mail it to her.

0:40:540:40:56

Now!

0:40:580:40:59

Is that it sent?

0:41:070:41:08

Why do you keep playing these stupid games, Frankie?

0:41:080:41:11

And as for you, you're just as bad as each other.

0:41:110:41:15

Sorry. I was upset.

0:41:150:41:17

Fortunately for you, I'm a very forgiving man. It's in my nature.

0:41:170:41:22

I can't help it.

0:41:220:41:23

I accept your apology, but you're going to do me a favour.

0:41:230:41:26

-OK?

-OK.

0:41:260:41:27

Good. Tonight, our house at seven o'clock,

0:41:270:41:31

-we're having a few people round for some birthday cocktails.

-Wha...?

0:41:310:41:34

As far as I can see it, Frankie could do with a friend

0:41:350:41:38

and so could you.

0:41:380:41:39

Now go on, get out of my sight until tonight.

0:41:400:41:42

You...

0:41:460:41:47

Not a word, Frankie, please. Not a word.

0:41:470:41:51

Someone put that bottle in my bag.

0:41:510:41:53

No, Mum. You've been found out.

0:41:530:41:56

And now you're chucked out.

0:41:580:42:01

All these dramatics over one bottle of whisky that I didn't even take!

0:42:010:42:05

Well, fine. I'll go.

0:42:050:42:07

I know where I'm not wanted.

0:42:080:42:09

Did you ever think for one minute why I do drink, Caitlin?

0:42:120:42:15

Have you ever given it any thought, what drove me to it?

0:42:150:42:20

Please don't do this, big yin.

0:42:240:42:26

I need you.

0:42:280:42:29

I cannae do this on my own.

0:42:300:42:32

We'll get through this. You can't deny that you haven't missed me.

0:42:360:42:41

You moving to Spain was the best thing that ever happened to

0:42:450:42:48

this family.

0:42:480:42:49

I told myself you were dead.

0:42:500:42:52

Drank yourself to oblivion.

0:42:520:42:54

Cos that way I could sleep easier at night.

0:42:550:42:57

Well, you'll not have to pretend any more, will you?

0:43:060:43:08

Alex is on his way.

0:43:240:43:25

Dad? Dad?

0:43:280:43:31

Will you speak to me? Please?

0:43:330:43:35

I just wanted to go for a quiet drink, that was all - but you

0:43:350:43:38

couldn't do it, could you? You had to create all this carnage.

0:43:380:43:42

All you had to do was send that stuff to Jules but you

0:43:420:43:44

-deliberately didn't, just to wind her up.

-Dad, it's...

-It's just what?

0:43:440:43:47

It's fun. It's a laugh.

0:43:490:43:51

It's not fun. It's vindictive, Frankie.

0:43:510:43:53

I thought me and your mother brought you up to be better than that.

0:43:550:43:58

She didn't bring me up at all.

0:43:580:43:59

She shipped me off to boarding school in the middle of nowhere and forgot about me.

0:43:590:44:03

Have you any idea how expensive boarding school is?

0:44:030:44:06

You got it paid for you! I was like a freebie.

0:44:060:44:10

A work perk. Yay. No Frankie cluttering up the house.

0:44:100:44:13

I chose to stay in the Army for you, to give you a head start,

0:44:130:44:17

-to give you the opportunities that I never had.

-Yeah.

0:44:170:44:20

And she was only too quick to pack my case and shove

0:44:200:44:22

me out the door while she ran off skipping, law books in hand.

0:44:220:44:25

Your mother's an intelligent woman,

0:44:250:44:27

you just want her to throw it all down the drain?

0:44:270:44:30

She was happy to for Katie.

0:44:300:44:31

Frankie, that was different. She had her qualifications by then.

0:44:310:44:36

I just thought that it would be easier - not easier,

0:44:370:44:40

that it would be better for us all if you went to boarding school.

0:44:400:44:44

It was your idea?

0:44:440:44:46

We were practically babies ourselves.

0:44:460:44:48

I didn't want us to mess you up.

0:44:480:44:50

Well, that didn't happen, did it?

0:44:500:44:52

Frankie, me and your mother, we love you.

0:44:540:44:58

Yeah, you just don't like me.

0:44:580:45:00

That's not true.

0:45:000:45:02

Look, I was forever running away and hope that your mother would

0:45:050:45:09

clear up the mess that I left behind.

0:45:090:45:11

Maybe we're not that different after all?

0:45:120:45:16

Like father like daughter.

0:45:160:45:17

Let's just try and see if we can get through this, yeah?

0:45:190:45:22

Come here.

0:45:240:45:26

Now, if Alex doesn't hurry up,

0:45:330:45:35

I'm going to be flooding this close soon.

0:45:350:45:37

Suzie! Suzie, please, please.

0:45:490:45:52

I know how it looks.

0:45:540:45:55

But I swear on my lassies' life I didn't take that bottle.

0:45:550:45:59

So, how did it end up in your bag?

0:45:590:46:01

Someone put it there. I don't know.

0:46:020:46:04

You can do better than that.

0:46:050:46:07

I know how it sounds, but I didn't...

0:46:070:46:09

Margaret. You need help!

0:46:090:46:12

I don't need help. I need a chance.

0:46:120:46:15

I need someone to believe me!

0:46:150:46:17

Yes, well, I'm afraid you've already had that from me.

0:46:170:46:23

All right there, Maggie May?

0:46:380:46:39

Aye, I'm fine.

0:46:390:46:41

I'm just checking to see if the mascara's actually waterproof.

0:46:410:46:43

What do you think, Sherlock?

0:46:430:46:46

A fight with Caitlin?

0:46:460:46:47

Do you think I'm going to really jump you for your out-of-date booze?

0:46:490:46:53

It's not out of...

0:46:530:46:54

Typical.

0:46:560:46:58

Do you want a wee cup of tea, Maggie?

0:47:000:47:03

One cup. I might just stretch to a wee chocolate biscuit.

0:47:030:47:07

Fine.

0:47:090:47:10

Just don't give me any of that herbal crap.

0:47:120:47:14

OK.

0:47:140:47:16

You all right?

0:47:260:47:28

Aye... No...

0:47:280:47:31

Do you think it's OK to do a bad thing even if it's for

0:47:310:47:33

the right reasons?

0:47:330:47:35

Why? Have you been cooking meth over at number 13?

0:47:350:47:38

Look, if you're doing something that you know is bad then there's

0:47:380:47:41

never a right reason for it.

0:47:410:47:43

Unless you mean that time me and Pete slashed Alex's tyres.

0:47:430:47:46

Cos that was a good thing for a good reason.

0:47:460:47:48

What've I done?

0:47:480:47:50

Well, I'll not know unless you tell me.

0:47:500:47:52

I didn't think it through. I just - I'm sure if I just...

0:47:520:47:57

AJ, what if you're the one that's done the bad thing?

0:47:570:47:59

How'd you make it better?

0:47:590:48:01

Say sorry.

0:48:010:48:02

Or, in my case, say nothing and hope that Alex doesn't find out.

0:48:020:48:05

Better get back to work, eh?

0:48:050:48:06

No, I need to go.

0:48:060:48:07

-Can it not wait?

-I can't. I need to sort something.

0:48:090:48:11

Sorry.

0:48:110:48:12

My mate says it's a shame you hadn't fastened up your zip,

0:48:150:48:19

wee man.

0:48:190:48:20

You were always a daft sod.

0:48:200:48:22

Do you want a refill?

0:48:220:48:25

No, I'm fine.

0:48:250:48:26

So, are you going to the meetings, then?

0:48:260:48:29

That's my business.

0:48:290:48:31

See, in the hospital, I liked all that. The talking.

0:48:330:48:37

Hospital? Don't you mean the loonie bin?

0:48:370:48:40

This is nice, isn't it?

0:48:430:48:45

What? Tea? Aye, who'd have thunk it?

0:48:450:48:50

No. Us. Not fighting.

0:48:500:48:54

You know, Caitlin said she would rather I was dead.

0:48:560:49:01

I'll have a word with her.

0:49:040:49:06

And I put in a good word for you at Amber Cabs, desk job.

0:49:060:49:09

Stop being nice tae me, Pete. You'll get me going again.

0:49:090:49:14

You've got a lot going for you, Maggie.

0:49:140:49:16

You're still a fine-looking woman.

0:49:170:49:19

Oh. Oh, now I see what this is all about.

0:49:210:49:27

You get me round here playing at the pal.

0:49:270:49:29

And all the time you're playing me.

0:49:290:49:31

No. You've got it wrong.

0:49:310:49:33

Paws off.

0:49:330:49:35

Maggie. Don't be like that.

0:49:350:49:37

You've got the wrong end of the stick.

0:49:370:49:39

Aye, right! Course you're going to fire in.

0:49:390:49:41

I've got a pulse.

0:49:410:49:42

No... Maggie! No, Maggie.

0:49:420:49:45

I'm not... I'm not gonnae fire into you. I'm not!

0:49:450:49:48

DOOR SLAMS

0:49:480:49:49

I can't believe how many people have shown up.

0:49:550:49:58

He was a very well-liked man, Liz.

0:49:580:50:01

-And you're a good friend, Molly.

-I know.

0:50:020:50:06

-There's one behind the bar for you, Liz. God rest him.

-Thank you, dear.

0:50:070:50:11

Suzie, where's my mum?

0:50:140:50:15

Stealing I can cope with, almost understand, but the lying.

0:50:150:50:20

No.

0:50:200:50:21

The whisky, you found it, didn't you, in her bag?

0:50:210:50:25

How did you know it was in her bag?

0:50:250:50:26

Ellie, what have you done?

0:50:290:50:30

You and Caitlin were pretending everything was OK,

0:50:300:50:32

and it wasn't, so I... I...

0:50:320:50:34

What did you do?

0:50:340:50:36

Oh, you idiot!

0:50:370:50:39

I was only trying to help.

0:50:390:50:40

And anyway, you know the truth now so, no damage done, eh?

0:50:400:50:44

I saw her only ten minutes ago out in the street with a suitcase.

0:50:440:50:50

Oh!

0:50:500:50:53

Thanks very much, darling. You call back now.

0:50:530:50:55

-STUTTERING:

-Bottle of vodka, please?

0:51:000:51:03

-What size?

-The big one. A litre.

0:51:030:51:05

-Anything else? Champagne's still going cheap.

-No.

0:51:050:51:08

All right.

0:51:100:51:12

That's 16.50, doll.

0:51:130:51:16

Thanking you.

0:51:160:51:17

50 change, darling. Thanks.

0:51:220:51:24

-Where's Mum?

-Out.

0:52:120:52:14

Out where?

0:52:140:52:16

I told you, first sign she was back on the booze, out.

0:52:160:52:19

What is it?

0:52:190:52:20

It wasn't her, it was me.

0:52:220:52:24

I thought Suzie would just sack her and she'd find a job somewhere else.

0:52:240:52:27

So she never stole?

0:52:270:52:28

-Why would you do that?

-Well, somebody had to do something!

0:52:300:52:33

Dry your eyes. Move. Now! Come on!

0:52:330:52:37

Scarlett, have you seen my mum?

0:53:090:53:11

She was here, I don't know, about 20 minutes ago.

0:53:110:53:13

What'd she buy?

0:53:130:53:14

Well, she didn't buy the champagne anyway. It was a pure bargain.

0:53:140:53:17

-Thank God.

-She bought a bottle of voddy, but.

0:53:170:53:19

-Thanks.

-Mum...

-Come on!

0:53:190:53:23

What's the point?

0:53:240:53:25

If you start greeting, I'm going to slap you. Move!

0:53:250:53:28

Have you seen my ma?

0:53:360:53:38

Aye. She didn't look happy.

0:53:390:53:42

Pete, come on, we need to find her.

0:53:420:53:43

Think, is there anywhere she would go?

0:53:430:53:46

If she needed a drink she'd...

0:53:460:53:47

She's got the drink, all she needs now is a place to drink it!

0:53:470:53:50

-Maybe it's not a drink she's needing.

-Of course it is.

0:53:500:53:53

Open your eyes, you might find her.

0:53:530:53:56

Wait, Pete...

0:53:560:53:58

I've been sober for 12 weeks and five days.

0:54:050:54:10

And, today...

0:54:130:54:14

..today...

0:54:160:54:18

I needed this.

0:54:180:54:20

I've had this bottle for the last half-hour.

0:54:230:54:26

I haven't drank it...yet.

0:54:280:54:31

But I know if I do, for a few minutes I'll feel happy.

0:54:330:54:38

But it'll not last.

0:54:410:54:42

I'm 54 years old and I'm sad and pathetic...

0:54:450:54:51

..and I'm a terrible mother and I'm...

0:54:520:54:55

I'm lonely.

0:54:570:54:59

And I'm a failure...

0:55:010:55:04

at everything.

0:55:040:55:06

Except today.

0:55:080:55:10

With this I managed to...

0:55:120:55:16

Well, I didn't drink this, and I could've, but I didn't.

0:55:180:55:22

So, today, there was something I didn't fail at.

0:55:240:55:28

'And that's a start...

0:55:310:55:33

'..because if I can manage to get through today...

0:55:340:55:38

'..and still not drink...

0:55:400:55:41

'..then maybe I'll get through another day sober.

0:55:430:55:47

'Maybe I'll get to 12 weeks and six days.

0:55:490:55:53

'And then...

0:55:540:55:55

'Well, wouldn't it be something...

0:55:580:56:00

'..if I didn't have to count any more?'

0:56:010:56:03

'And I really think that this time I can do it.

0:56:070:56:11

'For my lassies, you know?

0:56:130:56:14

'Because I need to do right by them.'

0:56:160:56:18

Come on.

0:56:190:56:21

Mum, I put that whisky in your bag. I'm really sorry.

0:56:210:56:26

-I didn't mean it.

-It's OK.

0:56:260:56:29

I didn't want it happening again.

0:56:310:56:34

I'm sorry.

0:56:340:56:35

Don't go jumping to conclusions.

0:56:400:56:41

You don't know anything about this girl.

0:56:410:56:43

I know what I saw, Alex.

0:56:430:56:44

I run a nightclub, not a refuge.

0:56:440:56:46

If I interfere, do you know the grief that could bring us?

0:56:460:56:48

It would be a big loss of income to me if you're going to be a killjoy.

0:56:480:56:51

It would appear I am a single woman again.

0:56:510:56:53

Have a celebration. Invite some fellow divorcees.

0:56:530:56:56

Taking you back, that's my sister's biggest mistake.

0:56:560:56:59

What's going on?

0:56:590:57:00

I heard her, she was, like, really in his face.

0:57:000:57:02

What have you been saying to Greig behind my back?

0:57:020:57:04
