Well, who's lying?
You and my dad.
You slept with him. What about Mum?
Are you going to tell her, or should I?
-What do you want from me, Frankie?
-I haven't decided yet.
Eileen's selling our flat.
As if we didn't have enough problems.
How was I to know you were in business with a human trafficker?
Rick dug us out of a hole.
-So what's so special about my aunt?
-You're her niece.
-She's going to stay with Lenny.
Where is she?
That's from the guy at the bar.
Madonna, gonnae hurry up? It's freezing out here.
Our teacher says the light's better out here for more mature subjects.
Aw, is that me done?
I'm so going to win this competition. Is there anyone else?
I've already got Bob.
Did you get Kim?
But it's a family tree.
Aye, and you're family now.
Come on, if I'm getting my photo took, you're not dodging it.
Och, I don't know.
Go on. Could be a certain somebody's first family picture.
Come on, people, I haven't got all day.
Ma, any news on this place yet?
Are they going to a closing date?
I hope not.
I don't know, the mortgage guy hasn't got back to me yet.
We're in here, Ma!
Right, I need to finish getting ready for work.
Once I've got these photos on, it'll be nearly be all done.
Can you check it, Mummy?
Oh, aye, course, darling.
That's fine. It's great.
Eh, he's your cousin...
Distant, very distant, twice removed.
In fact, he's dead, so he doesn't really matter.
-Right, time for school!
No buts, it's time to get ready!
Granny's not got all day.
Second cousin? There's photos of him all over the place.
She's not daft!
Shame on you, Scarlett O'Hara!
Aye, aye, I've got to get to my work.
The lassie deserves to know!
This hasn't got anything to do with you.
-It's none of your business.
-None of my business?
I am the head of this family, I'll have you know.
Just drop it, Ma. It's not your concern.
Check all the hostels, refuges, safe houses...
I don't care if you checked them last week. Check them again.
They might be moving Faith around, trying to keep us guessing,
keep us off the scent...
I've got a couple of places I need to check myself this morning...
Don't worry, we'll find her. One way or the other.
Whatever it takes.
I can't believe you let me fall asleep on that guy's couch.
It was so manky.
You're the one that was snogging his face off him all night.
Yeah, until he puked and passed out.
VIP night at the Candle Room tonight? No geeks allowed.
I can't. I'm skint.
What if I get us on the guest list?
Mm-mm. I've got to study.
You should try it sometime!
You can't hold your booze. It's nothing to be ashamed of.
I can hold it better than you.
Fighting talk. Shame that's all it is.
-The guest list, you said?
-That's my girl.
How you going to swing that?
You forget how persuasive I can be.
Gimme five minutes, I'll walk you to work.
-There's no need for that.
-Rick might have gone to ground,
but anyone out there could be working for him.
You think I'm going to get taken out by the lollipop lady?
I don't need a baby-sitter.
I was thinking more like a bodyguard.
Like Kevin Costner, but better looking.
Fine. But can we please just dispense with the security detail?
Not yet. I want eyes on you at all times.
It's Frankie. Apparently there's a tablet she's got her eye on.
Oh, and she sent an e-mail with a link.
Wasn't that handy?
Is she joking?
She found out about me and Greig.
And now she's holding it over me, threatening to tell her mum.
Wanting you to buy her things?
But I'm done.
If I can take on a scumbag like Rick, I can handle
a jumped-up teenager.
I don't know, I think she'd give Rick a run for his money.
I'll get it.
How much did I put away last night?
Too much, by the look of it.
I feel heavy rough.
You need to detox.
I need more kip, is what I need.
I mean it - your hangovers are getting worse,
and you're not getting any younger.
It's your body's way of saying you need to rein it in.
Tell you what my body's saying.
Come to Daddy. Full Scottish.
-What you having?
-Three raw eggs. Gently whisked...
That's for me?! No way.
Best thing for the morning after...
Not a chance, pure gives me the boak.
Why don't you go home, sleep it off for a couple of hours,
go back to bed?
I need to work.
Bob can do without you for a bit.
I'll be fine.
Once I demolish this bad boy, I'll be right as rain.
Aye, well, I think mortgage advisers
SHOULD be working first thing in the morning.
I can appreciate what you're saying.
I've got another brother!
I'll call you back.
You just couldn't help yourself, could you?!
-It just slipped out.
-How could you not tell me this?
-Madonna, I can explain.
-For ten whole years.
This isn't the time or the place. We'll talk about it later.
You need to get to school, young lady.
How am I meant to win the prize now? I can't hand it in if it's wrong!
-Course you can! Nobody's going to know.
I want my tree to be right!
I've got to go and fix this.
Thanks for nothing.
Mind the shop.
Look, I know I should've told you the truth.
Why didn't you?
-I want to meet him.
-You cannae, darling.
-I don't know where Stevie is.
-How do you not know? You're his mum.
Can we talk about this after? You're going to be late for school.
I've got to do my family tree again and put Stevie on it!
I need a picture of him.
There's plenty at the flat - you can have one of them.
-The man with the dark hair?
You said he was my cousin.
Aye, that was a wee white lie.
Is that why everybody leaves?
-Cos you're a liar?
-Are you going to let me go too?
Of course not, darlin'.
Look, if you're not going to school,
I'll need to get your gran to come and watch you, all right?
Since when did you become such a lightweight?
I cannae even remember drinking that much last night.
Losing your touch, mate.
How come Kim never came out?
In case she's, you know...
Aye. She had a quiet night looking at flats online.
-We're going to see one this afternoon...
If you're fit enough to keep an eye on this place for a bit?
Aye, no bother.
You told your mum yet? About moving out?
Totally bottled it, man.
She's pure stressed about what's happening with her place.
I just need to wait for the right time.
-Sorry, mate. I don't know what happened there.
Your hangover's what happened.
No, it's my wrist.
It feels pure weird. It's like...
pins and needles or something.
Here, grip it!
Maybe we need to try something... lighter?
Right, take it, come on!
Probably just overuse, from lifting all they jars last night.
Let me see it.
It's moving all right.
Ahh! What the...?!
It's responding to heat. It's probably just hungover.
Can you get a hangover on your wrist?
You can get a hangover anywhere, mate.
That's her back at the flat.
Least you can do is watch her for me.
This is your fault, opening your big gob!
I've got enough on my plate the now...
You can't blame this on me.
If you hadn't told her she had another big brother,
she wouldn't want to meet him, would she?
Would it be such a bad thing if she did?
A druggie and a dealer?
What kind of mammy would I be exposing her to that?!
Maybe he's cleaned up his act.
He's not been in touch for years, Ma.
Aye, because you put him in the jail.
I done it for his own good. He understood that.
Where's the harm in trying to find him?
You always did think the sun shone out his backside, didn't you?
"Oh, my first grandwean. My lovely wee boy."
So you're just going to write him off, are you?
He's the one that cut me off, by the way.
I'd be careful if I was you, Scarlett.
You've not got that much family left to lose.
-You'll end up on your own.
-And you're mother of the year?
-I never said that.
-What about your weans?
It's no' about me.
Where's our Andrew? Oor Bernie, oor Angie?
-Couldn't get far enough away from you.
Big Patrick, the other side of the world.
Even Big Bob would rather live somewhere else...
I know what it feels like to lose touch with your weans.
It's the sorest thing...
There is not a day goes by that I don't regret it.
Don't make the same mistakes that I did!
What are they saying?
They were just asking me about my statement.
How I found out about the brothel, has there been any reprisal?
And what did you tell them?
Don't worry, I kept all our dirty little secrets.
-I've got to go and see Faith.
Is that wise? With the cops sniffing about?
They just gave me some bad news.
It's about one of the girls from the brothel.
She needs to know.
What are you doing here?
Are you on your own?
OK, OK, come on up.
You're going to have to make yourself scarce.
Why? Is everything OK?
Somebody's on their way up and, well, they've been known to ask
the odd question or two. Just for a bit.
What's happening here, then?
I've had it with Scarlett. I'm coming to live with you.
Is Bob here?
Em, no, he went back to the flat to meet you.
I must've got my wires crossed. Stupid. Thanks.
Aye, a little bit bad, aye. It's been worse.
Hell mend you for lashing it last night.
I know, I'll never learn, eh?
Here, can you get a hangover in your wrist?
Your wrist? Specifically?
Aye, like pins and needles.
Not that I've ever heard or read about.
Can I take a look?
Can you feel that? Any pain?
No, no pain. It feels fuzzy.
Did you hurt it somehow? Maybe trap a nerve?
And your head - is it sore a lot?
It didn't used to be.
Look, I'm sure it's fine, but it's probably worth
getting one of the doctors at the surgery to check it out.
Just to be on the safe side.
If you say so.
Take it easy, OK?
Madonna, what were you thinking? Running away like that?
Cos you lied.
Darlin', come on, let's just go home.
We'll talk about this, all right?
-I'm not coming home.
I want to meet Stevie!
I've tried to find him but I cannae!
I bet Uncle Lenny could.
-Uncle Lenny's a busy guy. Come on.
-Couldn't you, Uncle Lenny?
It's not really any of my business, darling.
Please? I want to meet my big brother.
If anyone can find him, it's you.
I'll tell you what. I'll see what I can do.
Right. Home. Pronto. Go and get your stuff.
-I'm not coming home until he finds him.
-You can't make me.
-Aye, I can.
Just leave her the now, eh?
What else would I be doing?
Just pretend to look for him for a bit
and then send her home, all right?
You sure you want to do this now?
I have to. She's got a right to know.
-Is everything all right?
Frankie mentioned that you want to speak to me about something,
and I might not like it.
I don't know what she's talking about.
She must be confused, or she's winding you up.
Well, knowing her, it's probably the latter.
-I'm late for court, I'll see you later.
She's holding herself hostage.
Aye, right. What's the ransom?
A meeting with Stevie. She's asked Lenny to find him.
Well, if anybody can, Lenny can.
Aye, well, we'll see.
Just as well - you could be rattling around this place
on your own before too long.
Looks like Bob is moving out.
Apparently, they found something in the brothel
that led them to Kristina.
They tracked her down to Manchester.
They think that she was being married off to some guy down there.
And then they took her to the detention centre.
To deport her.
She didn't want to go home. That's why she did it.
That's why she killed herself.
When the paramedics found her, it was already too late.
I'm so sorry, Faith.
I should have never have come to you.
You were right to come to me.
That wound could have killed her.
And now it was all for nothing.
She's in Amber's room, watching a DVD.
-Have you done anything about Stevie yet?
You asked me not to.
Aye. OK. Gonnae find him for me?
-Will you make up your mind, woman?
Don't shoosh me in my own house!
Lenny, gonnae just... please, find him for me?
-I don't want involved in your domestics.
-He's my son.
I've lost Jimmy and Kelly.
-I've got nobody left because of you.
-My heart's bleeding(!)
I've lost too many weans, Lenny.
Wouldn't you want to see Ewan again if you had the chance?
Look, please find him, if not for me, for Madonna?
She's desperate to know him.
-Right, fine. Now give me peace, will you?
I need to go out. You look after the place, eh?
I can't. I need to get to the club.
Correct me if I'm wrong here - am I not doing youse a favour,
-looking after your fiancee's pet project?
-Wasn't me that asked you.
I wonder why.
I've got eyes on the house anyway.
Just try and make sure it's secure if you leave.
Hey, Stevie, it's me. We need to meet up.
KNOCK ON DOOR
All right, boss?
We're all on schedule for Monday's delivery.
-Thursday's looking sweet for the next one.
I'm not really here on business.
Well, you're not normally one for a social call.
So what's going on?
Your mammy wants to see you.
Got an event lined up for the end of the month which should be
-a nice wee earner for us.
I stopped having a mother a long time ago.
-That's not the way she sees it.
-I'm no' caring how she sees it.
Do me a favour. Drop the wounded wee boy act for a second.
Lenny, we had a deal.
I work for you so long as my family don't know nothing about me.
I'm not asking you to bare your soul. Just show your face.
What's it to you? Since when did you care what my ma wants?
I'm not doing it for her.
I'm doing it for your wee sister.
No. You know Scarlett had another wean?
-Ach, with Jimmy Mullen.
That wean - she's now ten-year-old and she's got a gob on her.
Just like her big brother.
She's a good kid. She wants to see you.
Have you gone soft?
Her da's in the jail. I said I would find you.
Aye, well, tell her you tried.
Not good enough. See, I like to keep my promises.
It's not a request.
Why would my ma ask you to find me?
Maybe she thinks you still move in the same circles.
Doesn't think I'm a reformed character, then?
-Wouldn't be wrong, would she?
I was never going to be a lawyer or a doctor, was I?
Come on, some of us are destined for greater things.
You know the address.
I'm sorry, boss. I'd do anything for you, you know that.
You saved my life when I got out the jail.
I owe you. But I earn my keep.
I cannae go back there. Not even for you.
The girl who died... it's not your fault.
She killed herself. She took her own life.
You did what you thought was best at the time.
-You were trying to protect them.
-If I'd just left things alone...
You can't think like that. What's done is done.
We did this, OK? Both of us.
If I hadn't got involved myself, if you hadn't brought Rick here...
-You're blaming me for this?
-I'm blaming both of us.
I need to get to the surgery.
-What the hell...?
-Whoa, whoa. Easy. Easy.
-I don't want any trouble.
Look, I'm sorry about last week. I was desperate.
-I went too far.
-I need to know where Faith is.
-How should I know?
-What about Annie?
-Don't you dare say her name!
Does she know where Faith is? Look, I need to make things right.
She's out her mind with worry. She thinks you've killed the girl.
That's not the way I operate.
I'll be sure to put her mind at rest. Now get out.
-Oh, and Rick...
You ever come near me, my fiancee or my home again,
and you're a dead man.
-Where am I going?
-On a big adventure.
Is it dodgy?
-You wanted to meet your big brother, didn't you?
Uncle Lenny's fixed it.
All right, all right, jump in the back
and you do what Pete tells you, OK?
-You've got the address?
Stay with her, watch her like a hawk. You understand?
Sure thing, boss.
I think that should be fine, yeah.
I'm going to call you back.
That's my gran's name.
-What is this?
-I'm Madonna. I'm your sister.
A wee delivery from Lenny Murdoch.
He said to remind you no-one turns him down.
I'll be right out there.
Were you in jail?
Well, it's nice to meet you too.
I was, yeah.
Do you know my dad, then? Jimmy Mullen.
No, 'fraid not, doll.
Are you rich?
Pretty fancy office.
I do all right.
What's your job?
Sounds posh. What's it like?
What do you think it's like?
Hmm - having nice clothes and an Xbox.
You like Xbox?
Never had one. Everybody in my class has one.
Or a Playstation, or a Wii.
But not you?
Mum says next Christmas.
But she said that last year an' all.
So what you after? Money?
No. I need your photo, for my family tree.
The one I've got the now is ancient.
Sorry, pal, no photos.
So, you just going to sit there?
Waiting... till you give me my photo.
Well, you're going to be waiting a long time.
I'm in no hurry.
So, youse are moving out?
Nothing's been decided yet.
But you're thinking about it?
-How? You're perfectly welcome at mine.
Both of youse, as long as you want,
and the wean, when it comes, if you're...
-We know that, but...
-It's not about that, Ma.
We don't even know if you're still going to be in that place
-in a few weeks.
-But I've been trying to sort all that stuff out.
You've been trying to sort it for a while.
Get a mortgage and make an offer.
Is it me? Is it something I've done?
It's just about stability, Ma. We need to plan for the future.
Oh, right, so youse are looking out for your future, is that it?
Right. What about me and Madonna? What about our future?
You'll find somewhere, and we'll help. But me and Kim,
we need our own place.
I'll still be at the garage, just along the road...
And I'll be at the health centre. And we'll visit. All the time.
Visit. Aye, right. See youse later.
Could have gone better.
This magazine's mince. You should buy quality.
And you would know, would you?
Molly says you've to always buy quality. As long as it's cheap.
Does she live nearby?
She's got some mouth on her, by the way.
That sounds about right. What about Bob?
Is he still kicking around?
Is he married?
Don't even get me started.
What about him and Deek, are they still attached at the hip?
And has Bob still got the garage?
If you're so interested, how come you never visit?
I'm just making conversation.
You should visit.
Mum would like it. And Gran.
-What about you?
-If I let you take my photo, will you stop bugging me and go home?
Right. One photo. That's your lot.
You have been hanging about with Lenny too much.
Hey! I can't use that.
One photo. That was the deal. We shook on it, mind?
Right, come on, beat it, short stuff. I've got work to do.
Can I use the bathroom?
It's right down there.
-Come back here when you're done, OK?
She's just gone to the loo, and she'll be right back with you.
Sorry, pal, I'm off the clock. Boss's orders.
He's very strict about stuff like that.
What am I going to do with her?
Take her back to Shieldinch.
You can't leave her here.
Make sure she gets home safe.
Has it changed a lot?
Yes and no.
That's my mum's shop.
I would never have guessed.
You not coming?
This is as far as I go, pal.
Here. Why don't you start saving up for that games console?
And slip that in my gran's purse.
Make sure she doesn't see you. Can you do that, yeah?
Good girl. Scram.
Bit of advice...
Get out of that flat as soon as you're old enough.
It was nice meeting you.
My number, in case you need someone to annoy.
Oh, it is you!
Come here. Come here till I get a right look at you, son.
-Are you all right, Gran?
-Oh, my boy. My boy.
All right, Gran.
What did you do that for?
Disappearing out my life. Where have you been?
Too busy to keep in touch with your old granny?
After all the time I came to visit you in the jail.
Of course I'm grateful, I just had stuff going on once I got out.
You're looking well. Are you well?
I thought you were pan bread.
Back at you!
I'm sorry, Gran. I just had stuff to sort out.
Well, as long as you're healthy, and staying out of trouble.
C'mon up and see Scarlett.
She'll not believe it when she sees you.
Aww, are you still not ready?
Come on, buy me a drink.
Gran, look, I'm not really up for...
I'm not caring.
You are my first grandwean and I'm going to be showing you off.
So, come on, move it.
-KNOCK AT DOOR
You ordered that tablet yet?
This is getting really old now, Frankie.
That stunt you pulled with Lorna earlier... Nice try.
If you're going to tell your mum,
why don't you just tell her and leave me alone?
Let her see just what kind of a selfish,
manipulative cow her precious big sister is?
I'd be doing her a favour.
Or you'd be ruining her life.
You and Dad already did that. She just doesn't know it yet.
This is blackmail.
No, it's... making the most of a bad situation.
So you get me that tablet, and anything else that takes my fancy...
including putting my name down for the VIP event
at the Candle Room tonight.
Me plus one.
All right, and the other one's for Jules, is it?
Yeah, sure why not?
Barely. And your fiance owns the place. I'm sure you can...
I have had enough of this, Frankie. Seriously.
Well, I suppose me and Lorna will have to have
a little bit of mother-daughter bonding time.
Can't say that I won't spill the beans.
You won't have to.
Not if I spill them first.
You finished with these?
This is my first grandson, Stevie.
Nice to meet you.
Son, I think we should give Scarlett a call, and get her down here.
Look, it's time to put this family back together.
Let's face it. None of us are whiter than white.
Right. I need to get back to the office, Gran.
She's been through an awful lot in the past couple of years, son.
It would make her day to see you.
It was great to see YOU, Gran.
The landlady's put her flat on the market.
She could be living on the streets.
She deserves a wee bit of happiness.
Oh, stay and see your brother.
Look, I need to get back to work. I'll call you, yeah?
All right, Gran? You here on your own?
Aye, I am.
It's probably for the best.
I should really be cramming tonight,
instead of blagging my way into the Candle Room.
Oh, it's not over yet. No way.
I don't care what that hag says.
We're going to that VIP night.
Can I have a single malt, please? And whatever the ladies are having.
Oh, no, thanks, we're...
Vodka tonic, please. And an orange juice for this one.
You're making quite the habit of this.
What can I say? I'm a gentleman.
You're going to have to let me make it up to you sometime.
Aye? What about tonight?
I couldn't help overhearing you're going to the Candle Room.
I'll see you there.
Not if she can't get tickets, you won't.
I might be able to help you with that.
Just make sure the funds are ready.
I'll be back for the pick-up.
Anyway, I'll see you in about five minutes.
Quite a stunt you pulled with the kid.
Don't ever walk away from me again.
I would hate to have to force you to learn some manners.
We had a deal.
Do you know how many guys want into high-end distribution?
But you need me. My family can't know.
-Any of it.
-I'm not going to tell them.
I can do without the earache from your ma.
-She hasn't changed, then, eh?
-Worse by the day.
-You sticking about?
-No, heading off the now.
Aw, listen, what do you know about Scarlett's flat being sold?
I can't tell you how happy I was to get your voicemail.
A bottle of wine and a gossip with my sister is exactly
what I need after the day I've had.
Yeah, me too.
Did you ever sort out that confusion with Frankie?
Uh, no. Well, yeah.
That's what I wanted to talk to you about.
A few weeks ago, Frankie...
I thought you were at physio this afternoon?
No, my appointment was cancelled.
Show them, Daddy, show them.
Show us what?
Go on, then, pass me my crutch, please.
-Oh, thank you.
-There you go.
-Quick, quick, the other one.
-Oh. That's amazing.
I'm not finished yet.
Oh, it's amazing! Isn't this amazing?
-Listen, I'll leave you to enjoy this moment. Congratulations.
What was it you wanted to tell me?
Och, it's nothing. It's just...
you know my best friend Sam from London,
she was expecting to be my bridesmaid.
I just thought I would ask.
Eh, no way. Sorry, Sam, but that's my gig.
No, you're right. I'll tell her the position's already taken.
Too right. Your wee sister's doing it. Sam can back off.
I'll make sure she gets that message.
-Good. I'd better get in and make a fuss.
-Yeah, yeah. Go.
You two look cosy.
Oh, and don't forget about the tablet.
He's not picking up.
Maybe he's gone to the Pop-Up to see Cassie.
Aye, maybe. Just weird he never said he was shutting the garage.
Argh! Shut them, shut them.
Angus! What's happening?
Aw, I don't know.
So, I just wanted to let you know
that I've spoke to the mortgage adviser guy,
and I've put a note of interest in.
So, that's all good, isn't it?
And I was just wondering if you want to come round for dinner tonight.
You and Kim. She's a big part of the family, now, isn't she?
Anyway, I'll see you both later. All right, Bubba. Bye.
Where did you get this?
Have you seen him?!
He gave me money. 40 quid.
He must be really rich.
What did he say to you?
He said that I've to save up for my games console.
And that I've to get out of here as soon as I'm old enough.
He said that?
I didn't get a proper photo, though.
Because he made a stupid face.
Right. Why don't I go and visit him,
and then I'll get a better one for you?
Why don't you get your coat and I'll drop you off at Caitlin's house?
Oh, and remember when you take the photo, to use the flash.
Aye, I promise, darling.
I don't know what happened.
I was at the garage and my arm went funny again.
My head was bursting...
He's just getting old. Happens to the best of us, mate.
-Can you get him some water, please?
If you really think this is a hangover,
I'll leave you to sleep it off.
If not, we should call Annie.
OK, send her through.
You look good.
You look old.
Receptionist said there was a Scarlett MULLEN to see me.
Finally dropped that scumbag's name, eh?
Aye, I remarried.
I heard. Congratulations.
Well, we're not together any more.
Somebody else you drove away?
Stevie, I'm not here to fight with you.
Then what are you here for?
Madonna told me what you said.
About leaving me as soon as she was old enough...
Just a wee bit of brotherly advice.
That wean is the only thing I've done right as a mother.
Please don't turn her against me.
I'm sure you'll manage that all by yourself in time.
Stevie, you had no right to say that to her.
I'm just looking out for my wee sister.
She's not your wee sister.
She's just a wean you met a couple of hours ago,
who happens to have the same mother as you.
A mother you've decided to cut out of your life.
You don't know anything about her.
She's pure and good and innocent,
and I'll not have you poison her against me.
Aye, she is a wee angel, now...
..but what happens if she falls in
with the wrong crowd, makes bad choices?
You going to get her banged up, as well?
Stevie, I did that to protect you.
Ten years, you took from me.
Ten years? That wasn't your sentence.
It was by the time I got out.
I lost my twenties because of you.
I thought you said you understood.
That time, in the van, when McCabe brought me to see you...
you said everything was right.
I was naive and stupid, and so were you.
You think those people couldn't get to me inside?
They got to me. Time and time again.
What do you mean, got to you?
Use your imagination!
McCabe said he'd look after you.
And he did. But then he got killed.
And things changed.
I will never apologise for sending you to the jail.
If I hadnae, you'd still be a junkie,
or some gangster's wee sidekick, or... worse.
Look at everything you've got here.
I did this, not you.
I made something of myself,
in spite of everything that you took from me.
I did what I had to do.
I was trying to protect you, Stevie,
because I'm your mother and I loved you...
..and I still do, and I always will.
But wee Madonna, she's all I've got left and I just can't...
Please don't take her away from me, Stevie.
Please! She's all I've got left.
Any weakness down either side of the body?
Aye, on and off. On my left side.
I keep dropping things.
I'm just clumsy, though.
A bit, aye. Mostly mornings.
Am I pregnant?
And how often are these headaches?
It's nothing, though, right?
Look, I don't want to alarm you, but I'm going to call you a cab
and it's going to take you to the A&E at St Mungo's.
You're not sending me to hospital?
I'd like to get you checked out sooner rather than later.
Check what out?
You'll be referred to neurology.
Neurology? Is that like brains and stuff?
It might not come to anything,
but I want to make sure we've covered all the bases, OK?
At least I can stop worrying
about not being able to hold my bevvy any more.
Will I tell Bob and Kim they can come back in?
How's the patient?
Embarrassed, but otherwise fine.
Just need to cut down on the nights out.
Right, I'll leave you to it, OK?
Do you want us to stick about until Cassie gets back?
Eh, no, you're fine.
I'm probably just going to crash out here for a bit.
All right, well, if you change your mind,
give me a phone, right?
You're sure you're OK?
Right as rain.
Did you talk to Stevie?
No, darlin'. He wasn't there.
I told you to bring your fake ID.
What was I supposed to do?
There's no point in us both missing out...
He's here. Got to go.
You made it, then? Where's your friend?
Underage. They didn't let her in.
That's a shame.
You tipped them off.
Three's a crowd, as they say.
That's quite a bold move.
No, I'd say just bold enough.
And if I asked you to come back to my place?
Would that be too bold?
I don't go home with blokes I don't know.
Even if they've got a roof terrace with a Jacuzzi?
You proper fancy yourself, don't you?
Have you ever drunk champagne in a rooftop Jacuzzi at night?
I suppose I could make an exception.
So much for standing up to Frankie.
She can just have the tablet.
I don't have the energy to fight any more.
You've changed your tune.
What's wrong with you? Why are you nipping at me?
Maybe I don't like getting blamed for some girl killing herself.
Are you still in a huff about that? Grow up.
Me grow up?
I'm not the one putting lives at risk for some crusade.
What is it you're trying to prove?
I was trying to protect a vulnerable woman.
Because it was the right thing to do...
and it's my job.
There's a limit to how far you should go.
Your job is to take her blood pressure and write a prescription.
There's more to my job than writing prescriptions. A lot more.
Because it makes you feel better about yourself?
If you save this girl, you can pretend we're not the people we are?
My decision to become a doctor vastly predates you.
I'm fine with the choices I've made. Are you?
Even though you're working with a man
who just sells women like commodities?
I mean, it's not surprising, though, given your history...
Your penchant for prostitutes, escorts...
That's a low blow.
You didn't care what Rick was doing.
What if that was Jessica that was being sold for sex?
Don't bring my daughter into this.
Is that why you don't talk to her any more?
Can you not look her in the eye?
I need to get out of here before I say something I regret.
Did I touch a nerve there?
You will do anything, anything to get money and power and status.
But that's what I am, right? A trophy.
You have got me SO WRONG here.
Is it love?
Or is it just some desperate need to be king of the castle?
You turned a blind eye to what Rick was doing, to serve your ego.
I didn't know to what extent. You want to talk about ego?
You're the one with the God complex.
You're so arrogant and so proud,
you thought you could take on Rick and win.
You can't even handle your own niece.
You love to show how much better you are than people.
-Is that why you became a doctor?
So obsessed with power and status, you based your career on it.
Don't presume to know what drives me.
I know fine well. We're the same, me and you.
You love all the things I do.
We are not the same.
Why else become a doctor? Come on. Admit it.
There's no shame in it.
-Just drop it, Alex, OK?
-Why? Because I'm right?
It's not about helping people or saving lives.
-It's about control.
-It's about feeling smug and superior to the little people.
It's about arrogance and ego and pride.
It's about your best friend dying
and not being able to keep her alive.
OK? My best friend died in my arms because I didn't know what to do.
I didn't have the skill or the knowledge to save her.
When was this?
We were at school.
We were only 12 years old.
I swore to myself then,
that I would never put myself in that position again.
That I would never be helpless or powerless.
That's why I had to save Faith.
That's why I went after Rick...
..and that's why I became a doctor.
I'm sorry. I didn't know.
-Well, now you do.
Just for the record...
I am not with you because of status.
I'm with you because I love you. More than anything.
You should've gone to that butcher on Dumbarton Road.
I mean, this looks a bit dry.
Well, don't eat it if you don't want it.
So, did the lawyer say if there was any other notes of interest?
-What? She doesn't know what a note of interest is.
Don't bet on it.
He says there's not been any other enquiries, keep everything crossed.
-I'll get it.
Oh, my boy! Oh! Come here. Oh!
It's my big brother.
All right, mate?
Looking good, wee man.
This is a surprise! What you doing here?
-You owe me a photo!
I know, that's how I came.
Cannae have you missing the best branch, can we?
-You all right, Ma?
-I'm all right now.
Room for one more?
Always room, son.
-Sorry, just a sec.
Hi. Yeah. Thanks for calling me back.
Listen, I want to push the button on 9 Montego Street.
Can we make the offer before close of play?
Make sure they know I'm a cash buyer.
I'm willing to pay whatever it takes to get my hands on this place.
Make it happen.
Sorry about that.
Eh, this is Kim, my girlfriend.
-Stevie. Nice to meet you.
HE BLOWS A RASPBERRY
I cannae believe this, son.
I wouldn't ask, but I'm dying. I'm not asking for smack.
Same difference. Both carry a prison sentence.
-Have you been to jail, aye?
Do you want to go?
I'm a big boy, Ma.
I can look after myself.
Alasdair Quinn is paying your rent. Why?!
-He's grooming you.
-Don't be ridiculous.
-Well, what's with all the secrecy, then?
-It says you get your results today.
-Doesn't matter. I'm not going.
-What the hell you playing at?
-I take it that means you haven't told her.
-I don't want to worry her.
-What's the big deal?
You said it was nothing.
Scarlett's lies come back to haunt her when Madonna's efforts to make a family tree bring to light a big brother she never knew she had. Will Scarlett reconnect or push her long-lost son away?
Annie is determined not to let Frankie's blackmail dictate her life, but will she be able to tell the ones she loves that she hurt them?
Angus is unable to face up to his fears when he starts presenting worrying symptoms.
