-I don't want your money.
I'll never rely on you for anything again.
-I don't think that's fair to Jimmy or you.
-Whose side are you on?
I'm thinking what's best for you and Madonna.
-I want a divorce!
-You... you don't mean that.
I'm telling you, we're finished.
for me to let you go. Once and for all.
What's Annie's second name?
Sobacz, isn't it?
-I said half eight.
-I know, but...
It's a quarter past nine.
-It's just, Raymond opened a new single malt last night and...
-You were drinking whisky?
-That's why you weren't here to pick up our daughter?
-I'd had a hard day. I wasn't feeling too great.
-Well, I got your lawyer's letter, we started chatting...
-I had to change an appointment for you!
I'm sorry. But I can still take Madonna,
-give you a wee break.
-You better get a solicitor and get things moving.
-No hurry, is there?
-Think I'm going to change my mind?
-I can still take her to the pictures this afternoon.
-Are you going to talk to a lawyer?
-No, cos I don't think that...
-Then you cannae see her.
-Oh, hi, Dad.
-How's things goin'?
-Fine, you know, the usual.
-I haven't seen you much lately.
-Well, we do live in the same flat.
-Yeah, I know, but... listen, fancy going out for breakfast?
-Is everything OK?
-Yeah, of course...
-I just thought me and you,
-couple of tattie scones, fried eggs, sunny side up.
-I do fancy a tattie scone.
-Right, you ready to go?
-Yeah, why not?
-Tattie scones, eh? Very nice, what happened to the early start at work?
-Oh, yeah. I've got a whole load
-of new stock to sort out.
-It can wait.
-Not really, it's cluttering up the shop
-and it needs sorted. Maybe another time.
Sorry, Dad. See you later.
Here, so I was thinking, I'm quite often talking to hotels about buying our soap, right?
But what else do hotels need? Taxis.
-So I thought I could help you out with a bit of promotion.
-Thanks, but no thanks.
I could be like an ambassador for the company.
-You cannae be an ambassador, you're an embarrassment.
Scarlett... it's me.
I just wanted to say I'm sorry. Can you let me in, please?
-TURNS UP THE VOLUME
TURNS UP THE VOLUME EVEN HIGHER
Oh, my wee darling.
-Give me a cuddle.
How did you get in?!
-Your mum gave me her keys.
-Scarlett, come on...
-You've no right being in here.
-I pressed the bell. I could hear you were in...
You don't live here now. How difficult is that
-I do understand, but...
I just want to see Madonna. I've got the day off.
-I want to take her to the pictures.
-You don't get to come in here. You're not part of this household.
-It's OK, sweetheart.
They're only pretending.
-I'll bring her right back.
None of your business!
Look, about earlier on... I'm sorry, but this isn't fair.
There you go. That's the last of them.
-Thanks. you really didn't have to do that, you know.
-The exercise won't do me any harm.
-Usually, they bring them in, but with me opening up late...
-Really, it's no trouble.
Here you go. You said espresso, yeah?
-I did, thank you.
-And on the house, obviously.
Well, now that I know that, it tastes all the better.
-Sandy, this is my sister, Eileen.
-Nice to meet you, Eileen.
-You too. I don't think I've seen you around here before, have I?
-No, you wouldn't have.
So you're just passing through, or..?
Well, I might be staying around for a while, have to wait and see.
-I'm just being friendly.
Actually, I'm looking for some properties...
investment opportunities. It's terribly boring.
That's not boring at all. In fact, if you need any advice, I'm very much au fait
-with the local property market.
-Really? I will bear that in mind,
but unfortunately, I need to be going.
-Well, if you need any help, I can always be found over at the Tall Ship.
-That's the pub.
-I live in the flat above.
-Actually, I was going to pop over there later.
-So perhaps I'll see you there.
-Gina, thank you for the coffee.
"I'm very much au fait with the local property market".
Zinnie. This place is filthy. Hey!
-Yeah, I know, but it wasn't my fault.
-Because of your long commute?
-No, I had to wait for the postman.
-I was expecting a parcel. Shoes, from Italy!
-Right, listen to me...
Look, I'm really sorry, honestly, it won't happen again.
This bar is still in a state from last night. Were you hoping some fairies would sort it out?
-I'll get right on it. Promise.
You know where the cloths are, don't you?
Look Raymond, I need to come back.
-I need to to work.
I've put blood, sweat and tears into this pub, buckets of them,
so it's not fair I should lose my place cos I got sick. In fact, there's probably a law against it.
To be honest, if you're sure you're ready, I'd really like to have you back on board.
I'm 100% ready and I'll take as many shifts as you can give me.
-I've got a lot on this afternoon, so I don't suppose...
-I'll be here.
-I appreciate that.
So who's going to watch Madonna?
I'll work it out.
I forgot, right enough. She's busy, eh?
Please, just let me take her out.
-So when do I get to see her?
-Me and Tattie are going into town.
Madonna loves the town. Take her with you.
Look, I heard Jimmy saying he wanted to take her to the pictures.
-Just let him. I don't want to get involved in this.
-You're my brother. You are involved.
Whose side are you on?
MUSIC PLAYS ON RECORD PLAYER
-TURNS DOWN VOLUME
Nothing, nothing... I was just thinking, seeing as we stole
your name to use for the taxi firm, maybe you should have one of these.
-Just so you don't sue us or anything.
-"Amber cabs gold card".
I had it made up specially. It means you never have to pay for one of our cabs,
-and when you phone for one, you go to the front of the queue, day or night.
If it's raining and some old woman's standing in it, our driver'll go past her
and pick you up instead. OK, I'll draw the line at old women.
-Thanks very much, Dad. You didn't need to go to the trouble.
-So, how about you let me buy you lunch?
OK. right, I'll be as quick as I can.
-You can take her to the pictures this afternoon.
Seriously? You must be pretty desperate to ask me, eh?
Are you gonnae do it or not?
So this is your idea of letting me have some time with my daughter?
-Why are you being like this?
-I'm not being like anything.
-I just think we should come to some arrangement.
-Look, all I'm asking for is a couple of weeks.
Just to see if we can try and get along.
And if you still want a divorce after that, I'll not fight it.
Fine. Two weeks. But no coming round the house without my permission.
Fine. And I'll try and help out as much as I can with Madonna,
but I want some quality time with her, I want to
take her out a couple of times a week, maybe to the park or something,
-and I want a full day at the weekend.
-Are you blackmailing me?
Come round this afternoon, half one. And don't be late this time.
I'll be there.
What is it?
this is needing paid and...
-I thought I could manage it.
-It's all right, I've got it covered.
I'm sorry sir, but I'm not a magician.
Half an hour is the quickest I can manage. If you'd booked...
I appreciate that. Oh, could you hold on a minute?
-Jimmy, I know it's your day off...
-No way. I just came for my shifts...
It's an airport run.
I just... I can't.
It's that big tipper fae round the corner, McGurn.
He needs somebody right away.
All right... tell him I'll be five minutes.
Mr McGurn? Thank you for holding on.
It turns out I do have magical powers after all.
-Orange juice, please.
-Just help yourself.
Well, it's not like you're a paying customer, is it?
OK, I was totally kidding, obviously.
Thank you. I don't think Raymond's going to be very happy when he sees you haven't cleaned this bar.
Look, I'm not being funny, but you don't actually have any, you know, authority here, do you?
That doesn't matter.
It kind of does.
-It was a joke!
What's the problem?
Her attitude and the state of this bar.
-Unbelievable. Consider this a formal warning.
-Get it cleaned.
Quiet today, which has been quite handy, but yeah, not bad.
-How are you getting on?
So is everything OK?
Yeah, why wouldn't it be?
Nothing, it's just... I just thought maybe...
Here, listen, you know that old woman Molly,
-Scarlett's witch of a maw?
She was nipping my head the other day, like she nips my head
-every day, and then it dawned on me, who she reminds me of.
Mrs Burns. Mind, she stayed across the road when you were wee?
Mad Mrs Burns! She was a total nightmare.
That was about the same time I took you to...
MOBILE PHONE RINGS
I'm having lunch with my dad.
In the Tall Ship.
OK. I'll see you soon.
Fraser. He's just round the corner, he's going to come and join us.
Sorry, I had a puncture on the way back from the airport, I was on a run.
-And I've lost my mobile.
-I know your game.
-Late twice in one day?
-This time it really couldn't be helped.
-You thought you'd rub my nose in it,
-show how you're calling the shots?
-I had a puncture!
-And I've had enough!
-I'm ten minutes late, ten!
-The deal's off.
-Look, it was good money, money that we need.
There is no WE any more, Jimmy. Get that through your thick head!
Open this door! I want to see Madonna.
You'll only see her when judge says you can!
-I've got rights!
-Not any more.
-Open this door.
-You better open this door, or I'll kick it in, I swear!
You're scaring Madonna!
-Hi. You eaten?
-I'm not interrupting anything, am I?
-No, we were just talking
-about an old neighbour of ours when I was wee.
Here, look what my dad gave me. Free taxis whenever I want.
-Wow! So do I get to use it too?
-Yeah. Why not?
-That's really generous.
-So tell us about this old neighbour then.
-You wouldn't be interested.
-But I am.
She was a wee bit like Molly, but worse,
-and she always had it in for me. But dad always backed me up.
-Cos you were his little princess?
I suppose so. You did spoil me a little bit though, didn't you?
-Fathers are allowed to spoil their daughters.
-And what about your mum? Did she spoil you too?
-Listen, babes, I wasn't thinking. I didn't mean to, um...
How long does it take to get a sandwich in here?
-You know what, I need to get back to the shop.
-No, no, no. I'll have a word.
It's cool, but... thanks anyway. I'll see you later.
Listen, thanks for this. Really good of you.
-He was only ten minutes late.
-He was an hour late this morning.
I know, but if he told you he had a puncture...
He thinks he can just waltz in here and take Madonna when he fancies. I'm not having it.
You're not gonnae let him see Madonna at all?
-No. He can get a lawyer and we'll let a court decide.
-I'm not the bad guy in this!
Look, I know what he was doing was totally out of order,
but you know how bad he feels about it.
you're my best pal and I love you,
but I just can't believe
that he deserves not to see his own daughter.
-I know you're angry, but...
-He nearly killed her!
Am I the only person who remembers that?
I need to get ready for my work, Gina. I think you better go.
She said I scared Madonna. Can you believe that?
Let's go upstairs and talk about this. She'll be here in a minute...
-I'm not allowed in my own house and I'm not allowed in here now?!
-That's not what I said, come on.
Seeing her daddy locked out, that's what scared her.
-I'm not gonnae stand for it, I won't, Raymond.
So, who did you did you get to watch her?
-Sorry I'm late, Raymond.
-You can't do this, you know.
-Maybe you should go for now. Get some air.
-What will folk say when they see what you're doing to me?
What I'm doing to you? What about what you done?!
-Have I not been punished enough?
-No, you haven't!
-If you think I'm gonnae pay this, you can forget it.
-They'll cut us off!
-You're a class act, Jimmy Mullen.
-And you're a nasty, vindictive...
-Jimmy! Time to go, eh?
Cheers, Raymond, thanks a million, really.
-Cut it out, OK?
I know Amber's a grown woman, she can go out with whoever she wants.
-I can't say anything anymore, I get that.
You need to stop trying to come between us.
-I'm not trying to come between anyone.
-Don't take me for a mug, son.
Maybe if you showed me a bit more respect, we'd all get on better.
-I should show you respect?
-Well, yeah. Especially around Amber.
I've been thinking, see that money I put into your wee soap empire? I should reinvest that somewhere else.
I needed that money. You know it's all gone.
Business is business.
Get your act together or I'll be taking it back. Think about that.
I'll take it from here.
-Did Scarlett not phone you?
I'm not working today, so I'll take over.
Oh, great. It's quite boring, looking after children. No offence.
We're going to go the pictures, aren't we?
I still get the whole tenner, though, right? It's only fair.
Eh? Oh, aye. Course.
There you go.
Thanks. See you later. Bye, you.
Right. OK, darling.
Now, are we going to have popcorn or chocolate?
Or maybe even both. And after that, we'll have some ice cream.
We're not going to skimp on the treats, are we? There we go.
'Hi, this is Scarlett. Leave a message.'
Hiya. It's me.
I'm taking Madonna to the pictures.
I'll have her back by bathtime.
I just didn't want you worrying, OK?
All right, darling. Let's get you strapped in.
A lemonade, please.
-Just a sec.
-Sorry, what was that?
-A lemonade, please.
So, is it just the two of you on duty?
-For the moment, yeah.
-That's £1.50, please.
-So when do you, um...
-Sandy! Hi, nice to see you again.
-How goes the property search?
-Is it a commercial property you were looking at, or residential?
-Right, well like I said, I know this area inside out.
-I'd be happy to give you some pointers.
-Well, I'd really appreciate that.
Great. I'm free just now, why don't we take a seat?
-Oh, right, well...
-Eileen, sorry to interrupt,
but Raymond went to the cash and carry and he said to call him if you need any nappies
-You have a baby?
-Eight months old, practically a toddler really.
-They grow up so fast, don't they?
-So I hear.
You know, the father and me... we're not actually... together...
-as it happens.
You know what, I've just remembered, I have a meeting in five minutes,
-completely slipped my mind, I'm so sorry.
-Maybe another time.
Don't worry, he'll be back.
Come on, who could resist you and your pointers?
Listen,I've got to go and check on something.
-Will you be all right for five minutes?
Right, either tell me what's up or take your miserable face out of here.
-You're putting off the customers.
-I don't want to talk about it.
Just tell me!
It's your dad.
He "had a word" with me earlier on.
What did he say?
Well, he doesn't want us together, that's for sure.
He actually said that?
And, you know...
I don't want to cause any trouble between the two of you, so...
What are you talking about?
Look... it got kind of scary.
Like he was going to hurt you?
I wasn't going to say anything, but...
I'll deal with him.
Just thought I'd check how you were getting on.
Umm... I'm getting on fine.
Have you got her watching the telly? It's OK, it won't do her any harm.
-Jimmy took her.
-He said you knew.
-And you let him?!
Why wouldn't I? He's her dad!
I think he said he was taking her to the cinema. Is it a problem?
Can I do anything to...
-How dare you!
Fraser. He told me what you said to him.
Hang on, I never said anything, all I said was... He was trying to get between us.
-You threatened him, tried to break us up.
-Is that what he told you?
I tried to talk to him, I tried to get him to understand.
But that didn't work, so out came the scare tactics? I don't even know why I'm surprised.
I never said I didn't want you two together and I definitely never said I was going to hurt him.
-But you didn't need to, did you?
-It looks that way, aye.
-All this trying to be nice, taking me out for lunch...
-I'm your father.
Here, take it. I don't want it, I don't want anything from you.
'Hiya. It's me. I'm taking Madonna to the pictures.
'I'll have her back by bathtime. I don't want you worrying, OK?'
But I've already cleaned them!
Yes, and now that the customers have come and gone you clean it again, that's how it works.
Relax, she's not here.
-OK. A lemonade, please.
So, eh...d'you know Eileen?
No, no. Well, we met earlier.
Sorry you're not her husband are you?
I was once. But she lives here with me and our son.
-So you own the pub?
-I do, yeah.
I'm in the area, looking at some investment opportunities.
Right, well I'd keep on looking if I were you pal, because the Tall Ship is not for sale.
No, sorry that's not what I meant.
-So, how many staff does it take to keep this place going?
-Usually half a dozen, mostly part-time.
We're a bit short staffed at the moment with Annie and Charlie being away.
I bet you're thinking of opening a pub in the area, aren't you?
No, no, no. So you and Eileen, you live together but...?
Right, she's a free agent if that's what you're asking.
Sorry, was I that obvious?
-You were a bit, yeah.
-I do apologise.
Thanks for, um...
I'll, maybe see you later on.
Amber, I said I'm sorry.
Tell me, what can I do? Come on, Amber.
-Why does it have to be like this?
-You don't get to bully and threaten people I care about.
So, why can't you just act like a normal person?
I said I'm sorry, didn't I?
I really am.
It's not me you have to apologise to.
He was trying to get between us.
Dad. He hasn't. He just wants you to give him a chance.
Look, I, um...
I was out of order earlier, all right?
Don't worry about it.
I guess you just got your wires crossed.
Yeah, yeah, maybe.
Look, there's this guy over in the east end he's got some taxis, he's selling them, a job lot.
It's above board. 100%. All you've got to do is hand over the cash, my guy's already checked it out.
You get two hundred quid for your trouble,
you'll be there and back in no time.
I'd go myself but I've got a lot on.
I'm pretty busy too as it happens.
Five hundred then.
OK, well, I guess I could move a couple of things about.
Well, if you can't make it...
The guy wants the cash today or he'll go somewhere else.
-I don't want that, because I want these motors.
-OK, fine, sure, I'll do it.
-Good, you'll come over to the office in a bit, then?
You all right?
-Are you seeing the specialist this week?
-Look, I don't need to see anybody!
-You've not been having any symptoms?
Right, but it's going to come and go - feeling tired, numbness,
there's no way to predict when you might have a relapse.
It's not going to go away, you need to take care of yourself.
Shout it from the rooftops, why don't you?
-See, he's a pussycat really.
-You just need to stand up to him.
he's still my dad.
Who'd of thought it, eh? Trying to buy his way into my affections.
-Yeah, well, maybe you should just forget this taxi thing.
-Are you kidding? It's easy money.
Enough for a weekend up north, five star hotel...
-You don't think I can handle him do you?
-Cos I totally can, don't worry about that.
I told you I didn't want any cake.
-Just take it.
-Eat the cake.
Maybe he really did have a meeting.
He practically ran out of the door when I told him about Stuart.
-Actually it was you I was hoping to see, Eileen.
Yes, I'm really sorry about earlier on, it just couldn't be avoided
and I was wondering if I might take you up on your offer... and perhaps, grab a bite to eat?
That's if it suits you, of course?
I think that suits me fine.
-Right. So shall I drop by the pub in say, an hour?
Lovely, I'll see you then. Gina.
Oooh! Who's going on a date, then!
-Uch, you'll be fine. Come on, eat the cake.
Who knows what he's capable of doing. I mean, he nearly took the door of it's hinges earlier on.
-Well, he did.
-He said he was taking her to the pictures.
-He can't be trusted.
-Aye, what's happened?
-I just need to ask you a few questions. Won't take long.
Is this your daughter?
What's going on?
She was reported missing, we're just here to clear it up.
There must be some mistake.
In cases like this we have to follow up every line...
-You're kidding me... She's at it!
-Oh, my baby! Oh, are you OK?
You charge her with wasting your time. I left her a message!
We don't want to be charging anyone right now. Mr Mullen, let's just try and stay calm, OK? Mr Mullen!
-I just want to talk to her!
-Mr Mullen, please.
-It's OK, darling, it's OK, it's OK you're safe now.
Of course she's safe!
You can't do this You can't do this!
-And then he asked me out. Just like that.
-Life in the old dog yet.
-Well, good for you. He seems lovely. And very charming.
He is very charming.
But, listen, there's something I think I should tell you.
It's about Raymond.
-What about Raymond?
-Well, your new man...
-He came back earlier on, he was asking Raymond about you,
and Raymond told him how you lived together and whatever.
He totally gave him the green light.
Well, afterwards... I could see that Raymond was upset about something,
I tried to ask him about it, but he just wasn't having it.
-Probably nothing to it.
-Yeah, yeah, probably.
-Look, afterwards, I went through to the back to get something
and there he was, just sitting on the stairs.
-He was... Well, you know...
His eyes were damp... and his cheeks...
-It was really heartbreaking.
-And you think this is about Sandy?
I think he just needed to talk to someone about it, because once he started he couldn't stop...
how he thought he was ready for this but he's really not.
He made me promise not to tell anyone, so...
I thought you should know.
No, Scarlett, don't worry... No, no, we've got it covered...
Yeah, OK. Bye now.
-You look nice.
-You're seeing that Sandy?
And here was me thinking he was trying to poach my staff.
-Have a good time, eh?
-Yeah... Actually, I'm not sure.
Could you give me a minute, I need to go check something.
-But we are still going to...?
-Yes. Well, just one minute.
-My commission. For sorting these taxis out.
-1500 quid for an hour's work?
You're not a supermodel son. You don't have the bone structure for it.
-Think of it as a down payment.
-Our developing business relationship.
You said you wanted it sorted today.
-You don't think you're just slightly overplaying your hand?
-You tell me.
There's the fifteen for the motors.
And that's the five hundred I offered earlier.
-All right! Whatever, I'll do it.
Good boy. Now here's the address.
There you go. Don't get lost now.
OK, so you're not happy that another guy showing an interest in me,
but crying on the stairs, pouring your heart out to her?
Sharing our private business?
-You've got no right to do that and no right to make me feel guilty!
-But I didn't...
The conniving wee...
I didn't say a word to her. And I certainly wasn't crying!
-I'm going to kill her.
-No please, leave it to me.
-if you're not comfortable with me...
-It's fine. Really.
Maybe I'm a bit old for... you know, dating.
You'll be fine.
The last proper date I had was with Murray!
Aye, well... you best prepare yourself for Sandy not having quite that level of danger.
Look, Eileen. You're a beautiful woman in the prime of your life.
Go, and have a good time.
TELEPHONE CONTINUES RINGING
How many times, when that rings, that's your cue to...
Did you see where she went?
Whatever it is, you've got to go.
Jimmy! Take it somewhere else, mate.
It's just my wee lassie. I love her so much.
I just want to be in her life, but Scarlett...
All right, he shouldn't have taken her. It was wrong, but...
you knew she was safe. Calling the police was out of order.
I knew they wouldn't charge him.
-Folk think I was being unfair to HIM. Can you believe that?
-Well, today they seen the real Jimmy Mullen, acting like the criminal he is.
Look, if you think there's no way back for the two of you then...
-I know there's no way back.
-Well, in that case, you're going to have to start putting Madonna first.
-That's what I've been doing!
-No you haven't been, Scarlett.
What you did today was cruel and spiteful.
I can't believe this, your my brother.
-Jimmy loves you.
-So give him some time to get his head round it all.
-That's his problem not mine.
-Using Madonna to bully him into getting what you want is just not right.
Why are you taking his side?
Will you stop going on about sides?! I'm sick of it.
How d'you think Madonna feels seeing you two screaming at each other?
Or seeing Jimmy being held back by the police? She's not a baby any more.
She's gonnae remember this stuff for the rest of her life.
D'you know what my first memory is?
Mum and Dad screaming at each other. Me scared out of my wits, cos I thought it was all my fault.
It's that what you want for her?
I think Raymond wants a word with you,
he seems really upset.
-Sorry about that. Ready to go?
The first thing you've got to do is
stop acting like a mug.
-You played right into her hands today.
-I didn't know she'd phone the police on me.
-Well, you should have.
There'll be a hearing. For custody.
-She's thinking ahead, you're not.
-It won't to come to that. I won't let it.
-Wake up, Jimmy. It already has.
Accept it's over between you and get a grip of the situation.
You got a lawyer?
Here. He's good.
There's no point... I can't...
That'll get you started.
I've got my own reasons, just leave it at that.
I'm trying to help you here, Jimmy.
I appreciate it. I really do. But I'm not gonnae play her game.
You need to get your head straight.
So how long have you been working for Lenny, then?
-I don't work for him. I'm just doing him a favour.
-So this taxi business is strictly on the level?
Aye, well, you won't have any problems with them anyhow.
Totally sound. Ex-fleet.
Full service histories, the lot.
I could of sold them three times over.
-What about them?
-They're proving a wee bit harder to shift
-but I don't think Lenny would be interested.
I don't even know you, pal.
Are these, like...
-Three grand a piece and they're good runners.
You could save yourself six grand, I suppose.
I just wouldn't want to look too closely at the paperwork?
This is not fair, this is so not part of my job description.
-It is now.
-I've been really good, I've been working very hard.
-Yes, at telling Eileen stories.
-It was a joke. I'm sorry.
You're some comedian I'll give you that.
-You're lucky we're so short staffed otherwise I'd give you the boot, right now.
-I said I was sorry.
-Well, after you've finished in there and scraped the chewing gum off the underside of the tables...
..you certainly will be.
Of course, you could always quit, I suppose. It's up to you.
I know you don't want me here. I've come to get my stuff.
You don't have to do that.
I'll find somewhere else to stay.
You can stay here. It's not a problem.
-Don't you think you should lay off the...
-Darlin', you just stay here a minute.
-Raymond, I'm really sorry about leaving you in the lurch earlier on... .
I'll leave you to it.
Look. What I done today was wrong.
Not letting you see Madonna. Calling the cops.
It wasn't right. I'm... I'm sorry, right?
I'm still dead mad at you for what you done, Jimmy...
but we've got a responsibility,
to not let that affect our little lassie. Right.
-I'd better get going then.
-Where you off to?
Gina's, I might have given her a bit of a hard time earlier on.
-I could look after Madonna for a wee while.
-It's all right.
-Just an hour.
Jimmy, to be honest...
After what's happened, I think it's important she sees that everything's OK between us.
Just for an hour. I can make her tea.
Madonna, come here a minute. Daddy'll look after you for a wee while so, I'll see you later.
Why don't you go through to the living room and watch a wee bit of telly,
and I'll be through in a minute.
-She thinks she's so clever. Scarlett.
This is all a game to her, Raymond,
she thinks I can't see what she's up to.
I don't know what was said just now...
She's trying to come across as all reasonable, and make me look bad.
Everything she's done today, has been to wind me up.
Jimmy, it seems to me that her coming to see you, letting you take the wee one,
she's trying to make peace.
She told the police I kidnapped my own daughter!
She's trying to push me over the edge so she can get Madonna to herself.
We all know Scarlett's got a bit of a temper and does things without thinking.
She's been thinking all right...
I'll just not have it!
-Madonna, come on darlin', we're leaving.
-Jimmy, sit down for a bit.
She can have her tea here.
-Where are you going?
I'll just be a second, sweetheart.
Come on, then. What's keeping you?
Just a sec.
Lenny, I need the money.
-This is madness.
-I've no choice.
-Aye, you have.
-I can't lose her.
-You're not going to.
-Listen to me.
-You do this, you cross a line.
-I don't care.
-When you come back they'll put you away.
-Whatever you do for the rest of your life, whatever you do for your wee lassie,
she's gonnae grow up and every time she looks at you,
she's just gonnae see somebody that cannae be trusted,
Believe me, you don't want that.
I'm not going to stop you. If that's what you want to do.
You better understand, you never come back.
I was actually just looking for Jimmy.
Is he not at yours?
He took Madonna out for a walk I think.
Everything all right?
I don't really know to be honest.
What is it?
-I'm probably being ridiculous, I'm just a bit concerned...
Did you have a nice time with Daddy?
I'll put the kettle on.
-No, you're all right, thanks.
Aye. Look... I'm going to go and see a lawyer tomorrow...
get things moving, it's best for Madonna.
-I'm tired of fighting.
Right. I'll... I'll see you later.
You be good for your Mummy, eh?
I'll see you soon.
SAD SONG PLAYS
This goes in the business account - a couple of grand.
-A couple? They're 50s, there's at least...
-Aw, Fraser gave them to me, they're sweet.
That's a grand's worth. D'you think you're good enough?
D'you ever think you're good enough for the woman you love?
But it's not just her you've got to impress, is it?
Hi, police please? Aye, somebody's robbed my house.

Scarlett isn't happy when Jimmy is late picking up Madonna for his pre-arranged visit. Jimmy wants to take Madonna to the cinema but Scarlett asks if Jimmy has seen a divorce lawyer yet - he won't get to see Madonna until he's done so. Throwing Jimmy out, Scarlett opens her post and finds a final demand for the electricity, but before she has chance to think about it Jimmy returns hammering on the door. Scarlett ignores him and eventually Jimmy lets himself in with the spare keys. He's bought Scarlett flowers to say sorry, and some of Madonna's favourite biscuits. Scarlett flies off the handle at Jimmy and Big Bob is left to comfort an upset Madonna. But Scarlett is forced to eat some humble pie when she needs Jimmy to babysit. She's also forced to admit she needs help with the bills. Jimmy takes the opportunity to negotiate some more time with his daughter, and to hold off the divorce proceedings for two weeks, Scarlett reluctantly agrees. When the opportunity of a lucrative airport run comes up in the cab office Jimmy takes it, he can be back before he needs to collect Madonna, and the money will help pay the bill. However, disaster strikes and Jimmy gets a flat tyre making him late again. Scarlett is furious and believes that Jimmy has done it on purpose to assert his authority. She refuses to let him have his daughter and Jimmy resorts to trying to kick the front door down, only stopping when Scarlett tells him that Madonna is scared.
Later, when Jimmy sees that Christina has been charged with looking after Madonna, he gets an idea. He tells Christina that there was a mix up and she happily lets Jimmy take Madonna. Jimmy leaves a voicemail for Scarlett and heads off. On her break Scarlett checks in with Christina and is furious to discover Jimmy took Madonna without permission. She finds his voicemail but deletes it and calls the police instead. Although the police see the situation as a domestic misunderstanding, Jimmy is mad that Scarlett could do such a thing. He returns to the cab office in bits and Lenny provides an unlikely shoulder to cry on. Meanwhile, Big Bob makes Scarlett see sense - this is only hurting Madonna. She decides to try and build bridges and leaves Madonna with Jimmy for a few hours, but Jimmy is past caring and decides to leave Sheildinch with his daughter. When Lenny realises Jimmy's plan he tries to reason with him. Back at the Mullen's Raymond turns up to see Scarlett, worried that Jimmy might have done something stupid, but he's relieved when Jimmy returns with Madonna. He's realised that he needs to move on for the sake of his daughter, and agrees to meet with a lawyer about the divorce.
Lenny is also trying to make an effort to bond with Amber but Fraser continually gets in the way. Lenny confronts Fraser and when Fraser starts to threaten Lenny's relationship with Amber, Lenny retaliates by threatening to take back the cash he gave Fraser. A desperate Fraser heads to Hola and lies to Amber about her father's behaviour. Amber is annoyed that her dad is up to his old tricks and tells Lenny that she doesn't want anything from him. Lenny is desperate to make amends with Amber and offers a business related olive branch to Fraser. Fraser realises that he can make some money out of the arrangement by buying cheaper, stolen, cars. Lenny's contact at the garage presumes he's buying them on behalf of Lenny and agrees a deal leaving Fraser to secretly pocket the leftover 6000 pounds.
Elsewhere a handsome stranger, Sandy, arrives in Shieldinch. Eileen is immediately smitten but minxy Zinnie tries to scupper their relationship before it has time to blossom. Eileen and Raymond eventually twig that Zinnie's been up to no good and thankfully Sandy returns for that all important date, but why has he got a photo of Annie in his pocket?
