Tommy McCabe. Here's to guys like us, eh?
You didn't tell him?
And I'm no gonnae.
Callum doesn't need a man like that in his life. None of us do.
Lenny's leaving town. He's asked me to run the business for him.
-I thought you said you were selling?
-I've had a change of heart.
I'm going nowhere.
Give me a wee second, OK? Come here.
That's us. Run across the road.
MUSIC: "500 Miles" by The Proclaimers
Ha-ha-ha! Come on, you! Up on your feet.
I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to dance!
Kelly, you coming to join us?
District nurse was pleased then?
-Kind of. Anyway, I'm healing up.
-He needs another week off, but.
-Come on, darling.
Och, come on. You're here. Cal's here.
Jimmy's on the mend.
Lenny's gone. Leaving my gorgeous man at the helm.
Tell you what, it's a good day to be a part of this family.
On you go, wee man!
Is there any coffee?
You're an angel.
Someone must have seen it!
-Cheese and pickle.
-My bag. I've only been looking for it all morning!
Your stuff is your business, Nicole. You know that.
Got to go. Sorry.
-Can I not have ham?
Be my guest.
Oh, thanks very much, you shouldn't have.
What? It's one of the good ones. A hundred grand, Hayley.
Just think of everything you can buy me with that.
-Happy birthday, doll.
-I'll just get these in some water for you.
-Hold on just a wee second.
There's somebody I'd like you to meet first. Frances?
Robbie. Jack. This is Frances Keener.
-She's going to be renting a chair with us.
-We've been talking about it for a few days, actually.
-Not with us.
-This is my salon.
I think that Frances has a lot to offer us.
-Like 20 years in the business?
Trained in London. Worked down there for years.
-We're lucky to have her.
-It's fine, Hayley.
Jack doesn't want some newbie muscling in, treading on his toes.
-Something like that.
-You've nothing to worry about, Jack. Promise.
I bought breakfast. Help yourself.
And I was just heading out for coffees. Do you want one?
-I'm all right, thanks.
-I'll have a cappuccino, please.
Would it have been so hard to be just a wee bit welcoming?
I don't even think she noticed.
Not the point, Jack.
I have to go out.
-Are you three going to play nicely?
-We'll be fine, Hayley.
-What about your flowers?
Here, I better make a move.
-You could phone in sick?
-Is that lot for us?
-Aye. Nothing exciting.
They all final demands?
There's just the two of them. We'll stall them until we've got the money.
-I'm looking for work.
And I'm due a raise. Before we know it, you'll be back in Amber Cabs.
We'll get it sorted.
You're still here. That's all that matters.
Me and Kelly are all over this lot.
-C'mon, you need some rest.
You heard what the nurse said.
Right, come on.
So, kids OK after yesterday?
Seem to be, yeah.
Now, are you busy later?
Depends what you mean by later.
Tonight. Dinner time.
Actually, I've got a date.
Oh, right. Anyone we know?
-Nope. Don't really know her myself yet.
-I know exactly how you get to know women, Gabriel.
You'll be back at her place before they call last orders.
Actually, we're going for dinner.
-In a proper restaurant.
-You going to sort that hair out then, yeah?
-Why do you have to be so mean?
-Why do you have to be so scruffy?
Right, OK, if it's not the kids, what did you want me for?
Oh. It's not important.
Seriously? I've made myself late for work for this?
That's us. Keep looking.
And then we run and we jump! Yes!
I was hoping I might catch you.
-Just to say thanks for yesterday.
-Going to Ewan's grave. It meant a lot to me.
-I never did it for you.
I know, but...
it's nice to know somebody else cared.
Shame that's not what you thought at the time.
Look, why don't we get a coffee or something?
-Clear the air a bit, maybe?
-I've got to get Callum to playgroup.
Are you not wondering why I'm still here?
What's it going to be, wee man?
What are you after? A yum yum?
Or a big chocolate doughnut?
That was always Ewan's favourite.
Fudge doughnut and a chocolate milkshake, eh?
-You'll spoil him.
-Sounds like a great choice.
Think I'm gonnae have the same.
So you're nearly three?
When's it your birthday?
-Thought we were going to talk about you, Lenny?
-Just trying to get to know the boy.
-You still leaving, aye?
-I don't know.
I think I might have a reason for staying about now. Don't you?
How should I know?
It's family keeps you in a place. Do you not think?
Aye. And yours have all gone.
No need to be like that.
-So, who's his dad?
-His dad's Michael.
Michael's his father.
-We really have to go now. Sorry. Come on.
-I need the loo.
-We'll go to the toilet.
Don't say a word. Just keep walking.
What did he want? I thought he was leaving?
It's fine. It's done.
-It doesn't matter, Bob.
I've dealt with it. And we say nothing to Ma. OK?
I still think you should apologise.
What for? I did nothing wrong.
You were totally rude!
Look, Frances could have her pick of any salons and she chose this place.
I think we owe it to Hayley to make her feel welcome.
-Make her want to stay.
-I don't see why.
You know this place is struggling.
-She needs our help, Jack.
Besides, I'd have thought you'd be showing more than a professional interest.
Come on. I might be gay but I still know when a woman's hot.
Fine. I'll apologise.
In a minute. Right.
You looking for an appointment?
No. Is Hayley around?
Cash and carry. Maybe I can help.
I'm just looking for work. I thought that...
-I should just wait for Hayley.
-No, no. I'm here. Talk to me.
I used to work here for Deek way back.
Doing nails and facials and stuff. I just thought...
I know you don't have anyone doing that the now. And you've got the room...
-When can you start?
-You think Hayley'll go for it?
-Just leave Hayley to me.
We'll give you a call.
-Brilliant. Thank you.
-See you later.
What are you doing?
You said Hayley needed help. So, I'm helping.
We've got a junior for that.
She's paid to look after you. Not me.
I'm sure she wouldn't mind. You got a minute for a chat?
We got off on the wrong foot. My fault entirely.
I'd just like to apologise.
It's fine. You don't need to.
I do. I was out of order.
I should be making you feel more welcome.
Well, thank you. That's very kind of you.
You seem distracted.
Is something bothering you? You're not happy to have me here?
No. God, no. We've been looking for an experienced practice nurse for ages.
You're perfect, and you're local...
Pregnant and out of practise.
You're doing fine. And I'm sorry if I gave you any other impression.
Hey! How's it going?
It's going great. What can we do for you?
I need to register Callum. Thought I'd get it done while he's at play group
-if that's OK?
Tatiana will get you sorted.
There you go. Just bring them back when you're done, OK?
Linda'll talk you through the rest of the system. She can finish off the phones and computer system. OK?
Oh, gosh. Thank you!
-It's our wedding anniversary.
Two years today.
-I thought he'd forgotten!
-You have a very clever husband.
Flowers at work are always so wonderful.
Oh, they're for you. Oh. Um, sorry.
Apparently you're the one with the clever husband.
-It's fine. What's an wedding anniversary anyway, really? Just another day.
You should get those in some water.
You staying put, then, aye?
Maybe, aye. Maybe not. Don't know. Not decided yet.
-But I'll keep you posted.
It's just about the job and that...
-Nothing's changed there, Jimmy. Still want you running things.
-OK. If you're sure?
So, how's things?
Aye, fine. Still a bit sore but I'm getting there.
-You have mouths to feed now, eh?
-Aye. Getting by.
It's tight but we'll manage.
-That's your sick pay.
And a wee bit extra. Just to tide you over.
-I don't need this.
-Aye you do, Jimmy. You can't live on thin air.
Come on, don't let pride stop you putting food on the table.
-What's the catch?
-No catch. Just want you fit and back at work
-as soon as. OK?
-I'll pay you back.
It's your money, Jimmy.
Not a gift, not a loan. It's what you're entitled to. Nothing more.
How's Kelly-Marie's wee one settling in?
Oh, he's fine.
He's something else. Just nice having a boy about the place.
Needs more men in his life, Jimmy.
Too many women in that house.
You should take him fishing.
-Take him up to see the Hoops. I can get us a box up there.
-He'd like that.
Thanks again, Lenny.
-See you later.
See you later.
I think it's just what this place needs.
I've been cutting back on beauty staff for a reason!
-She'll bring in more than she costs.
-We can't afford it. End of story.
I'm the boss. I do the hiring round here. Yeah?
-He wasn't trying to undermine you.
-I'll deal with this.
-But you were only helping.
I've got it. Thank you.
Frances... Nice one, Jack(!)
Never speak to anyone who works here like that.
-And get this thing with Kelly-Marie sorted. Pronto.
-You want me to speak to her?
You hired her, you can fire her.
Unless you'd like to resign? Reckon I could afford a nail bar then.
-At the very least, I'm the most senior member of staff.
I think I should be paid appropriately.
-Basically, you want more money.
Look, I've been here for years through thick and thin.
As a pal as well as an employee.
Does that not mean anything?
Course it does.
Is there something you're not telling me?
Because you're right.
I am more than just your boss.
-So if you were in trouble...
-Raymond, we're fine.
I just want a pay rise.
For my years of loyal service.
I suppose we could work something out.
Ya beauty. Ta, Raymond.
You'll not regret it.
-In a minute.
-Aye, all right!
-Jack's offered me a job at the salon.
-Aw, that's magic.
-I just talked Raymond into giving me a rise.
Aye, what did I tell you?
Today is going to be a good day.
Between you and me, those bills were starting to freak me out.
-You'll tell Jimmy?
How did I get to be so blessed?
Thought you were leaving.
That's not very friendly.
The thing is,
I was up at Ewan's graveside yesterday.
-That's nice for you.
-It was, actually, aye.
Only thing, I didn't expect anybody else to be visiting him.
Aye. Why would they?
That's what I thought.
Why would she?
Look, I've got lots to be getting on with here. I've not got time...
Kelly-Marie, of all people.
-I mean, it's not as if they were serious, is it?
And he's been gone a wee while now.
Why would she bother?
You know what Kelly's like.
-Who's Callum's dad?
I don't believe you.
Who's Callum's dad?
I know it's not Michael.
We both know it's not Michael.
Save yourself a whole lot of bother here, Bob.
Just tell me.
I mean, I'm going to find out anyway.
Might as well be you.
Oh, could you get that?
Montego Street Health Centre.
OK. Table booked for seven o'clock.
I'll pass that on to Dr Brodie. Thank you. Bye.
I don't think your husband forgot at all.
-How's it going?
What are you doing here?
-I just came to check you're all right. You get the flowers?
-Yes. Thank you. They're beautiful.
Now go. I'll see you later.
And you should go home.
She can't! It's your first day!
The temp is here. We'll manage.
Bob's right. I can't leave you.
I'll be fine. You must have so much to do.
It's their wedding anniversary.
Michael is taking her to some fancy restaurant.
A surprise! Isn't it lovely?
-Not much of a surprise.
You have a baby-sitter?
Something to wear? And you need time
to relax and make yourself beautiful.
-Are you sure you'll manage?
-I'll be fine.
If you're sure.
-OK. Thank you so much.
-It's OK. Just make sure you have fun.
And you say nothing. All this stops. I am pregnant, not broken.
I will see you at home.
-You lied to me.
-What? No, I didn't.
Michael is not that boy's father.
-I don't like being lied to.
-You got a minute?
-Jack, can it not wait?
Listen, I spoke to Hayley.
-There's no job is there?
Do you know what? It doesn't matter.
-Really. It's fine.
So did you have your own salon or what?
No. I worked in a few different salons. Did some fashion work.
How fabulous. Why on earth did you come back here?
This place is so...ugh.
-Oooh! Really? Oh.
Right. That kind of personal.
I should let you get on.
Robbie, is Jack staying away because of me?
I get the impression he doesn't like me much.
-I can't seem to do anything right.
-It's not you.
Jack likes to think he's pure alpha.
-He's a lovely guy, great stylist, but...
-Hayley's the boss.
Think he sometimes forgets that.
Just so you know, Jack finds it physically impossible to dislike an attractive woman.
OK. Thank you. By the way, this is for you.
-My first client this morning?
He wants me to phone him?
-But he's at least a nine.
Oh, my god! I don't care what Jack thinks. We are keeping you.
Hiya. Didn't think you'd be in.
So, Lenny's still here, then?
Aye. He summoned me to his office earlier.
-Yeah? What did he want?
He said he might go, he might no'.
But either way the job's still mine.
-He might still be leaving?
-Dunno, think so.
Did he say anything else?
He was asking after Cal...
-Aye. Just out of the blue, asking how he was settling in.
-Why would he care?
-Don't know. Maybe all this stuff with Amber, it's maybe made him soft.
Brought out his caring side.
He said him and I should take the wee man out more often.
Thinks he needs more masculine influences.
-Listen, I'm going to go to the shops. You want anything?
The job. It fell through. I'm sorry.
It's all right. I've sorted it. I'll see you later.
-Aye, she's through there.
-What's going on?
-I should never have came back.
-First sign of trouble and you're jumping ship?
-It's my problem.
I'll deal with it my way, OK?
No. It's not your problem. He came to me,
asking questions about Cal's dad.
-He threatened me, Kel.
-What did you say?
Nothing. What do you think I said?
I've got to protect my son, Bob.
Lenny doesn't know anything. He can't, can he?
All right, he's a bit suspicious, but that doesn't mean nothing, does it?
So, you're not going to do anything daft, are you?
You're going to stay?
-D'you want me to go get my ma?
She doesn't need to know any of this.
She'll just go nuts and I don't need that right now.
Right. Do you need me to stay with you?
No, I just need some space.
So just...go. I'll be fine.
-I've tried everyone else, Scarlett.
-Sorry, Jimmy needs to rest.
-What about Eileen?
We've got our own wee one to watch.
Annie? It's our wedding anniversary. We really need this.
I'm not really that good with kids.
They'll be absolute angels. They're practically grown up.
-You just stick a film on and leave them to it, really.
I'll send them over with money for pizza and their own DVD.
-We've not had a night out in ages, just the two of us. Please, Annie.
-Thank you, thank you! I'll send them over at six thirty.
-You've been had.
-All right, Bubba?
I think Kelly's going to leave.
-What? Don't be daft. Why would she do that?
-Lenny's sniffing around.
What do you mean, "sniffing around"?
He cornered Kelly this morning,
asking about Cal's dad. Then he done the same with me.
-Doesn't mean anything.
-He thinks Ewan is Cal's dad.
And he's mad as hell. I thought he was going to punch me!
That's no surprise. Lenny Murdoch we're talking about.
-Ma, she's packing a bag.
-That's me away.
-OK. Enjoy yourself.
I tell you, there'd better be enough pizza for me.
With two teenage boys?
There's not enough pizza in the world, Annie. Everything OK?
-No. Raymond, I need to go.
I've got to. Ten minutes, tops, I swear.
It's coming out of your wages!
Her bag's gone.
Can I get a single, please?
-We were just going to the pictures.
Is that right? That's an awful big bag, isn't it?
What's in that?
-You weren't going to leave us, were you?
-No. We're going to be late.
Come to your granny, darling. Aaw!
We need you back at the house.
-We're just going to the cinema.
-Aye, it will have to wait. Come on.
Boy doesn't get to finish his doughnut. Now you're going to deny him a trip to the pictures and all?
I'm not hanging around waiting for Lenny to work it out.
He'll work it out a lot quicker if you run. How long d'you think it's gonnae take before he finds you?
The only folk that know the truth are in this room.
As long as we sit tight, stay calm and stick to our story we'll be fine.
He's got nothing.
Aye, he has.
-He saw me at Ewan's grave. That's where all this came from.
-I just wanted to say goodbye.
-Goodbye to what?
-A pile of earth covering some eejit who never gave a damn about you?
-He's still Callum's dad.
Stop saying that. Michael's his dad.
Ma. How long is that going to wash? I should just go.
-Why did you come back?
-To be with you.
To raise Cal with the folk that mean the most to me.
-That's not changed, has it?
So you're going to let that guy take you and Cal away from us?
This is crazy.
We'll get through it.
He's right. Come on,
we've got through worse.
Hayley, can I have a word?
Look, I've not been great today.
I've been rude, crabbit and just plain daft.
-And I'm really sorry.
Hold your horses, there's more.
I thought it'd be good if we could all do something together.
-Are we not going for a drink?
-I was thinking something a bit bigger. Bit of team building, if you like.
We're not going go-carting, are we?
-We can't afford this.
-It's all bought and paid for.
Shooting in the morning, a gourmet lunch and an afternoon of fizz and facials.
That's some apology.
I used to do the manager's hair.
-And the rest!
-That's really nice.
-Really nice. Thank you.
I should get on.
-Did you get a chance to speak to Kelly-Marie?
-Aye, I did. She took it pretty well, actually.
I shouldn't have asked you to do that. I was angry.
-Nah, I was out of order. You had every right to be angry.
No, it was a good idea, you know,
-just when we've got the money...
-Whatever you think, boss.
-What's all this, then?
Hair looks good. New gear, too.
-Very nice. So, who is she?
-No-one you know.
Looks like it's going to be a good night for both Brodie boys, then.
-Well, Michael's taking Leyla out for an anniversary dinner.
Pretty sure she was hoping to make a night of it, if you get my drift.
It's their anniversary, of course it is.
And muggins here is babysitting.
-They'll not kill each other, will they?
-No, they're great kids. You'll have fun.
Hmm, we'll see. Enjoy your date.
-Sorry, Raymond. I know I took longer than I said I would.
-Yeah, you did.
-Go home, Scarlett.
-Don't be daft. I've still got an hour to go.
I got Charlie in to cover.
-I can't manage this bar on my own, Scarlett, you know that.
-But you knew I'd be back.
You've been gone for half your shift.
You weren't answering your phone. I'd no idea where you were.
It's not good enough.
-And I'll be docking your wages.
If you're not here, you don't get paid.
Now go home.
I'll see you tomorrow.
Where have you lot been?
You know what? It doesn't matter.
You're going to Annie's in an hour.
-Your Dad and I are going out.
So just be ready and make sure you clear this lot up, OK?
Smells amazing, Jimmy.
I told you I'd look after you, didn't I?
We're through in the kitchen, darling!
-What's all this?
-Roast chicken, with all the trimmings.
You sell a kidney?
Lenny Murdoch offered me some sick pay. Told you he was going soft.
A grand, to help us tick over till I'm back on my feet.
So I filled all the cupboards, paid the worst of the bills,
-and, well, the later ones, they can wait.
-How much is left?
-Where is it?
-It's in the sideboard.
-We can't keep it.
-What do you mean, we can't keep it??
-We can't afford to owe that man anything, Jimmy.
-That's your reason. What's hers?
I'll not be long. I'm sorry, Jimmy.
-What the hell's going on here?
-Calm down. OK? I'll talk to her.
Kelly, let me do this.
-Ma, this is his way in!
-I know that! I mean, give me the money, let me do it for you.
No. It's my mess. I'll clean it up.
-He's gonnae see straight through you.
-No, he won't.
This is my home, my family, my life.
And that man is not getting a look in.
I'm your mammy. Let me do this for you.
This isn't for me.
This is all for Cal. And I'm HIS mammy.
I'm not just your wee lassie any more, ma.
I'd move mountains for that boy. Just the same as you would for me.
Lenny doesn't stand a chance.
Kelly-Marie, how was the pictures?
-It's not all there. We'll get the rest as soon as.
-It's not mine.
-Aye, it is.
-I gave it to Jimmy.
-We don't want it.
-Jimmy wanted it. Does he know you're doing this?
-Bet that's made him feel great, eh?
-I know what you're doing. And I want it to stop.
-What am I doing?
You think Ewan is Cal's dad.
-I've already told you.
Michael's his dad. And no matter how much money you throw at my family, Michael will always be Callum's dad.
-Why did you go to Ewan's grave?
-You know what I'm like.
I'm a big softie. It's sad, Lenny.
When someone you know, someone so young dies. I was paying my respects, that's all.
You know all the dates match up?
It's a coincidence, that's all.
Like this? Another coincidence?
You see the resemblance, don't you?
Uncanny, isn't it?
I'm sure Cal looks like a lot of three-year-old boys.
No, no, no.
He's Ewan's. I know it.
Let it go, Lenny.
I know you hate him, but did you have to turn Kelly against him and all?
I never turned her against him! Maybe she sees him for what he is.
A businessman that pays his workers their due?
Aye, cos he's really famous for that, isn't he(?) Have you forgotten what he's done to this family?
All the money I make comes from Lenny Murdoch. What's so different?
He pays you an honest wage for an honest day's work,
-not taking hand-outs? That's not how we do things.
-Are you off your head?
I mean, I could have lied to you. Could have said I won it on a horse. But I thought we were past that.
I thought after everything, you'd appreciate the honesty
-and the fact that something good had happened!
-This is not good. Lenny Murdoch doesn't do favours.
-You don't get something for nothing with him.
-Scarlett, we can hardly afford to live! Again!
-And I'm sick of it.
-Look, Jimmy, we'll get through it. We always do.
-We did get through it!
-That money would have seen us through to payday.
-You had no choice, darling. We can't afford to let that man in.
-I know. I still feel awful.
Jimmy's right about one thing, but. We're totally rooked.
He told me about your job.
There's a pawn shop up the town, might still be open.
Reckon I could get a few bob for this lot.
I've got a bracelet, could maybe get us something.
-This is all my fault.
-It's not your fault we're skint.
If me and Cal weren't here, you could have taken it.
If you and Cal weren't here, he'd never have offered.
You lot ready? To go to Annie's!
Well, go on, then!
-Don't come in!
-Oh, it's you.
What are you doing?
I hear our Michael is taking you out.
-You're going to get something done with that hair, yeah?
As soon as I get rid of this lot.
-Give me that.
-Give me that back!
You can play it again at Annie's. Shift.
-Come on. Chop. chop.
You got everything?
We need money...for pizza.
-There's 30 quid on the table.
-There you go.
Leave those. I'll get them.
-You finish getting ready.
I'd have taken them, you know.
-I could have cancelled.
You could've. Not sure you would've, though.
You don't think much of me, do you?
You're a single guy.
Family's not high on your list of priorities.
-Come on, that's not fair.
-If you turn it the one on the left a bit more.
-That's what I'm doing. Gonnae just...
-But if you... You're doing...
-I need more room, right?
I'm not going anywhere.
I did warn you.
Let me see.
I think you'll live.
No permanent damage done.
Right, gonnae let me deal with this?
-There we go.
-Can you see it?
-Careful, you'll end up filthy.
-Stick the plug in, eh?
Maybe give it a wee clean up first, eh?
Why don't you finish getting ready?
I'll sort this lot out.
Are you sure?
Just getting my priorities right.
What are you doing?
I was just gonna pop these through the letterbox. I think Kelly-Marie left them in my office.
-Listen, sorry about the money. I know you were only trying to help.
-No skin off my nose, Jimmy.
-Next time, you maybe want to think about keeping quiet, though, eh?
-We don't do that anymore.
Lying costs too much in the long run.
Yeah well, you lot would know all about that. Later, Jimmy.
Do you know how many times you've told me that joke? It's not been as funny since you cut your hair.
THEY ALL LAUGH
-So, you left someone pining for you down South?
-Did you bring him with you?
-You're single, then?
Yes, Jack. I'm single. You?
-What does that mean?
-My idea of a joke.
Pretty bad, eh?
-Anybody fancy another?
-Definitely! Same again.
You want a hand?
I think I'll manage.
-Dan, hi, how are you doing?
-'Hi, Michael, I'm running a bit late.
That's fine, no problem. Table's booked for seven, so no rush.
'I'm not far away, but we might need to forget that drink.'
Tell you what, why don't you meet me at the fountain, then we can go over to the house?
-I can introduce you to Leyla before we jump in a cab.
-'Sounds great. I should be there in five minutes.'
I'll see you, then.
You look lovely.
My brother is a very lucky man.
-Will you stay for a drink?
This is your night.
It's OK, it's OK. I was just leaving.
No, it's good you're here.
-Dan, this is my brother Gabriel, who you already know.
-Sort of. Good to be properly introduced.
This is my wife, Leyla.
Dan Hunter, my new partner.
Hi, pleased to meet you.
-Can I get you a drink?
-Actually, we were just on our way out.
-Yeah. We thought a celebratory dinner was in order. Mark the dawn of a new era.
-Have a great time.
-Are the kids about?
No, they're at Annie's. I'm planning to go out with the girls tonight.
Didn't want to leave them on their own.
Thought you looked a bit glamorous for a night in. Right, see you later, then.
Good to meet you.
You know I think I will stay for that drink.
'I want a private investigator'
on this now! I want proof.
-And I want that daft wee lassie to realise who she's messing with here!
-You think this boy is your grandson?
-I know he is.
I know it in my gut.
And you want...what?
I want him to know who I am.
-I want to be part of his life. He's the only family I've got left.
-You tried breaking into their house?
I was looking for proof. A birth certificate, a DNA sample...
-Typical granddad stuff, then.
Sorry, Lenny, but with all due respect, you're going about this entirely the wrong way.
-I want answers.
-I understand that, but you won't get them by force.
Come on, I'll take you for a drink. We can talk this through, yeah?
If you did the shows, you must know the famous people that only need one name. -
-Naomi, Kate, Gisele!
I hope Shieldinch isn't too dull for you. Excitement's pretty thin on the ground round here.
Been a bit TOO exciting recently, with all the arrests and shootings.
-Have you not read the papers?
-Lenny Murdoch's daughter's just been locked up for shooting his arch rival.
-Who's Lenny Murdoch?
That wee guy at the bar. With the hair.
-Doesn't look like much.
-Just a small town, over-the-hill gangster. He owns a two-bit taxi firm these days.
A gangster. How very dangerous!
I know it's frustrating, but if you want access, you're going to have to play this smart.
-I always play smart.
Have you any idea how much damage you could have done today?
-This is important.
-Then take a step back.
-And what? Let them think they've won.
That's what you want.
Right now, they're closing ranks, because they see you as a threat.
You'll get nothing from them.
But if you step back, keep your head down.
After a while, they'll relax a bit.
And then you can make your move.
How long is that going to take, eh?
The boy's not going anywhere, Lenny.
I'm having another one. You?
Are we moving, or what?
Yeah! Birthday girl wants to party! You coming out, Frances?
-I really think I should call it a night, guys.
-You can't ditch your first work night out.
No, I think I should. I'll finish this and head.
-I'll keep you company.
-No, there's no need.
-I don't mind. I hate to rush a pint.
OK. That's, erm, nice of you.
You know what? I might give Juan a phone,
see if he fancies hooking up later.
All right see you two tomorrow then.
What kind of man forgets his second wedding anniversary?
A man with a lot on his plate?
Two years ago today we got married.
Two years. That's all. He's not got that much on his plate.
You know he loves you.
I'm just part of the furniture, Gabriel.
Last year's project.
He's on to pastures new now.
-That's not true.
-Maybe not, but that's how it feels.
-You should go.
It was sweet of you to stay this long but I'm not going to let
my car crash of a love life ruin yours.
-You sure you're going to be OK?
-There's half a bottle left.
I'll be fine.
All this stuff with the surgery.
The Dan bloke and everything else.
It's all for you, y'know.
it's not what I want.
Look, I know it's really late notice but can we do this another time?
It's just, I'm in the middle of this family thing.
No, no. Nothing serious. Just that,
well my brother's a tube.
Do you mind?
What are you doing back?
The thought of you weeping into your bubbly was putting me off my steak.
Dinner is served.
Why are you being so nice to me?
Maybe I know what it feels like.
-When Michael doesn't see you.
Here you go.
Here is to fish suppers...
..and cheap plonk.
Thank you. Hope they choke on their oysters.
Least there'd be a doctor in the house!
-This one's out for the count better get him straight to his bed.
You all right?
So where did you lot get to?
Went to pick up Cal from Bubba's.
Took him for a wee walk.
Kelly needed some fresh air.
After the day she's had.
-Jimmy. She feels terrible.
-What about me?
-I'm trying to provide for my family.
-She knows that.
Is there something I should know about, Scarlett?
Is there something youse are keeping from me.
Why would we?
I can see why you hate Lenny but Kelly-Marie, seems awful sudden.
Michael owed me it. Finally wired it through.
I know you're upset but I was only thinking of you.
-Thinking of me, how?
-Lenny's handing out sick pay and you don't think there's a catch?
-I know it seems a wee bit odd but...
He'd have called it in, one way or another.
Get you wrapped into one of his schemes.
You're no use to any of us in jail,
hospital or dead.
When he looks at me, all he sees is a wife and mother.
That's not true.
Course it is.
That's what defines me, isn't it?
You know, I used to be fun Leyla, party Leyla. Leyla with the TR6.
-You had a TR6?
-I loved it.
Falling to bits, white convertible.
Totally brash and impractical and in your face.
I could just never see you getting passionate about a car!
See? That's what I mean!
No-one expects me to be passionate about anything.
But I was.
-So get another one.
It's not too late, you know.
To be party Leyla again.
But that's not what he wants, though, is it?
Who cares what he wants?
What do you want?
I want another drink.
Right I better be going.
Listen, thanks for this.
It's what you pay me for, Lenny.
Just promise me you'll sit tight.
You're in this for the long game yeah?
-You'll get what you want.
Might take a bit longer than usual. That's all.
Keep in touch.
-Fancy taking this back to my place?
No, I should be getting home.
-Just when I thought we were getting on so well.
-We are! It's just...
You don't want to rush things.
We have to see each other every day. You want to be sure. I understand.
No. It's just that I'm not that interested. Sorry.
Look, I only came home because my mother's not well. Really not well.
And I don't have time for anything else but work.
-You're a nice guy and I'm sorry if I gave you the wrong impression.
-You don't have to explain.
-Just thought you might fancy a nightcap. Another time maybe.
See you tomorrow, then.
Are you working at the salon?
-You'll like it there. They're a good bunch of people.
I guess they are.
I think Jack's dropped his wallet.
D'you want to give it to him?
< DOOR CLOSES
Oh, here he is!
My wonderful husband.
-Did you have a nice time?
-Yeah, It was good thanks.
-Yeah it was really good. The food was amazing.
-I'm so glad! Lots to talk about?
Yeah. We've got quite a lot in common actually.
Isn't that lovely? That's lovely.
What happened to your girls' night out?
That was just a big fat lie, Michael.
I bet you're a wonderful husband.
I wouldn't know about that.
You're very handsome, aren't you?
Makes everything better with a smile.
-Not like Dr Useless here.
I might have had one or two.
You still haven't remembered have you?
Happy anniversary, my love.
-Two years today.
-No. That's not until...
It was today.
And you forgot
and went for dinner with...
-Dr Handsome instead.
-I should go.
Stay, have a drink.
There's no wine left but I could make a cup of tea?
No. Really it's fine.
Leyla, maybe you should go to bed.
Oh! Oh, right.
Is that what Dr Useless prescribes?
The man who puts everyone and everything ahead of his family.
But a good night's sleep'll make that better.
You're embarrassing yourself.
I'm embarrassing you.
Which is far more important. Isn't it, Michael?
Michael, you're neglecting our guest.
Where's the whiskey?
-I should be heading off.
-No, stay. Have a dram with me, where is it?
Leyla. Maybe you've had enough.
I'm meant to be sensible, aren't I?
Well, I'm sick of it. GLASS SMASHES
You hear me?
I'm TR6 Leyla!
I'm so sorry about this.
-You forgot your anniversary. Your wife's allowed to be angry.
-Yeah. I guess she is.
Still, it's not quite the end to the evening that I had in mind.
Can't be helped.
-You should go apologise. I'll see myself out.
You going as well?
I don't think you need an audience for this one. Just try and make it up to her, eh?
Cos you know so much about these things(!)
Just be nice.
I am so sorry.
-It's all right, it's all right. No harm done.
-Let me get you another.
-It's all right.
-Please, it's the least I can do. I owe you one from yesterday.
I should be heading home anyhow.
Come on. I really need another drink and I could do with the company.
Didn't think you needed it.
You've been sitting with Jack all night.
That's why I need another drink.
Suits you. You should do it more often.
Make that two.
-So you from round here?
-You after your wallet?
-Aye. Got all the way home and couldn't pay the taxi. Is it here?
Yeah, it's behind the bar. I'll just get it for you.
-There you go.
Why do I bother you so much?
I'm just trying to do the jigsaw and there's a great big piece missing.
Molly, this is Dr Dan Hunter, he's going to be joining the practice.
I'll be sticking with you. You're no great shakes, but better the devil you know.
I bet you I can put this ball
through that door.
-Why didn't you tell me?
-I was under no obligation to tell you about any issues I had in the past.
