Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.
By the way, you're no' gettin' any wee-er, son.
I couldn't help but notice Tatiana's tone wi' Bob earlier.
She's always on at him about his health
and does he take a blind bit of notice?
Too late to change a man once you've hooked him.
Have a bag of crisps and cheer up.
-How much? A pound?
Are you leaving that?
I'm not very hungry.
-There's a first time for everything.
-It's giving me heartburn, actually.
Cereal gives you heartburn? But at work there will be biscuits
and crisps and chocolate and no problem.
-I've cut right down, if you must know.
-Aye, you're wasting away.
So, what are we having for our tea, salad?
Have whatever you like, I'll be late tonight.
I thought it was your day off.
Not the surgery. I'm volunteering, a women's outreach programme.
-What sort of women?
-You know what sort, Bob...
Aye, but I didn't think you'd go through with it.
And that is why I didn't say anything.
Right, well, I'm going to my work.
Bob, what's wrong?
You dinnae look it.
I just...I just need a wee minute.
Here, take a sip.
See. There you go - right as rain.
You should've said something to the doctor.
Miriam? I've only got heartburn, I'm no' wanting an earache to go with it.
Is that Bob?
Christina. She's meeting Nicole.
-She's a good lassie.
I was just thinking the other day,
she'll be the first O'Hara to go to university.
-I mean, not that she's an O'Hara, really.
She is, she is.
Oh, it does my heart good hearing you say that.
Well, you realise that Bob deserves a lot of the credit
for her doing so well.
-I mean, let's face it, you were in a mess when you got together,
If I remember rightly, you were getting evicted.
What are you trying to say to me, Molly?
I just hope you don't forget.
I know Bob has been a good influence on Christina.
I am very grateful. Why else do you think I stay with him?
I knew things were bad.
But I didnae know they were that bad.
What's going to happen when the lassie leaves home?
I have to go out.
You sure you're not wanting the caffeine-free version?
Don't joke with me, Bob. I'm not in the mood.
See you tonight.
-She's forgot her change.
-I'll take it.
Hold on a second. You forgot something.
-It's only a few pence.
-You know what they say, take care of the pennies...
-He says he's feeling better, but I'm not so sure.
He says he feels all right now. What do you think?
I don't... I don't think anything, he's fine.
Well, he turned up for work this morning in a terrible state.
Did you not even notice?
If he turned up for work, Iona, it wasn't so terrible.
Now, I have to be somewhere.
Somewhere in particular? Or just not here?
There you go. Have a nice day.
-Did you catch up with her?
-Eh? Oh, aye.
Really? She's got unfortunate women to rescue, I'm surprised she stopped.
-Is that where she's off to?
Right, I better ring that order through.
-Iona, I need to...
I'm... I just need a minute.
Do you need some painkillers?
I've got some in the house, from when I put my back out.
Want me to go and get them?
No, I'll go - the fresh air'll do me good.
Right, aye, that's a good idea.
And listen, just take the rest of the day off
-if you need to, all right?
-Oh, no, no, you're fine. I'll be back.
Shieldinch Mini Market, Iona speaking.
Aye, all right! I was just about to phone you!
Give me two seconds.
Right, kitchen roll, two dozen, tin foil, two dozen...
Would you like to come inside?
There's tea and coffee and sandwiches.
HE GASPS FOR BREATH
Where are you from?
You're a long way from home.
This is my home now.
The Ukraine must have been a pretty crappy place if you prefer it here.
Like everywhere, there is good and bad.
Are you OK?
I've not seen much good at all lately,
so I'll have to take your word for that.
I know we can't change everything like that.
But we can help.
Condoms. Needle exchange. Screening for HIV.
I've had a test.
Six months ago, a year maybe.
Even six months is a long time in your life.
You're telling me.
You doing this next week too?
There's one lassie I know,
I think she might need testing.
Maybe I'll bring her.
Maybe you could get tested too,
so she knows there's nothing to be scared of?
Out of juice.
Can I no' just leave a bundle on the counter for folk to pick up?
Hmm? Eh, no, sorry, you're only allowed one on the notice board.
Hi, Nic. Here, how do you fancy making a few extra quid?
-Marketing and promotion.
I know it's not very glamorous, but I'll make it worth your while.
-Go on - I could use the cash.
-Right, chum me back to Number 18. I'm interviewing trainee stylists.
Wait, hang on, how come you're not interviewing me?
-I didn't think you'd be interested.
-Well, I am.
The wean's a go-getter, I'll give her that much.
-Sorry, Robbie, I've got other things to worry about.
-And I'm not a wean.
Oh, keep your bloody hair on. Come on.
Bob, it's me. Listen - I'm just phoning to see if you're all right.
I'm sorry if I made matters worse earlier by having a go at Tattie.
I just want you to be happy.
Give us a phone back when you get this, eh?
HE PANTS HEAVILY
What happened to you meeting me after class? You forgotten about me?
Yeah, I had, actually.
Sorry - Robbie's got me delivering all these leaflets.
In fact, you could give me a hand now if you wanted, if you're free.
Yeah... Or I could go home and watch TV.
I'll give you half what I'm getting,
plus I'll treat you to lunch from my first full-time wage.
Yep - you are looking at the new trainee stylist at Glasgow's premier hair studio.
-What about school?
-What about it?
-You can't just quit.
-School's your thing, not mine.
Are you gonnae give me a hand or not?
Bob, are you in here? Bob?
ambulance, please, ambulance.
It's my friend, he's collapsed.
It's 9 Montego Street, Shieldinch.
I think it's his heart.
Uh-huh... Yeah, I do.
Come on, Iona, you can do this.
Come on, Bob. OK.
-Bob, his name's Bob.
He's down again. Defib.
-Oh, not again.
-OK, we're back in business. You Mrs O'Hara?
-No, I'm... I'm...we're just friends.
-OK, let's get Bob down to theatre.
-Your friend hasn't got time to hang about.
How many more flats until I get a break?
I think we're doing this wrong.
Not me. I fold the leaflet and pop it through the letterbox.
That's exactly what I mean, though.
I don't want these to get treated like junk mail.
You're taking this really seriously, eh?
I think we need a more one-on-one approach,
like a face-to-face type of thing.
I didn't really sign up to do a task on The Apprentice.
We can start in the Oyster...
Not exactly your target audience.
-It's Big Bob, he's collapsed.
What do you mean, collapsed?
It's his heart, darlin.'
Tatiana, can you call me back?
Listen, look, I'm really sorry.
Bob's in hospital. He's had a heart attack.
You need to come, you need to...
ANNOUNCEMENTS IN BACKGROUND
-What's going on?
-Sit down, Christina.
-I don't want to sit down! Where's Bob?
-He's having surgery, darlin.'
He's had a cardiac arrest. His heart stopped.
Oh, my God.
Is it a thingummy? What do you call it, a bypass?
No...what did that doctor guy call... What did he say it was?
A stent. They're fitting a stent.
It supports the artery.
-Is Mum with him?
-We can't get hold of your mammy, Christina.
She's not answering her phone.
-You're going round all the houses?
-Yep, community centre next for the mother and baby group.
Darlin', you really in the mood to give a sell to a bunch of women with screaming weans on their knee?
-Captive audience, isn't it?
-No, but what I meant was...
I know what you meant. But there's nothing I can do for Christina.
What if he dies?
He's not going to die!
I'd just rather be busy, OK?
Here, I think this is great, what you're doing.
What did Leyla say?
I haven't told her yet.
Any news on Big Bob, Doctor?
Not that I'm at liberty to pass on,
none of you being family members, as far as I can recall.
Red wine, please.
We're all like family round here, though.
-Large or small?
-Small, I think.
It is affecting all of us.
I'm meant to be off now, but I'm covering for Scarlett.
Look, no-one's prying, but we're a tight-knit community around here
and everyone's concerned.
The first 24 hours after any heart attack are crucial.
Survive that and your odds start to look a lot better.
-I'll get you that, Doctor.
-Thank you very much.
That'll be your tight-knit community in action, I suppose.
Got it in one.
Such a shame that no-one in this little village green
of a place thought to have a word with Mr O'Hara about his weight.
He might be here with us now, instead of fighting for his life.
He's still in theatre.
It's OK. I'm here.
Where are the others?
-Just through there.
This is really, really good of you guys.
No, I'm happy to help, honestly.
Madonna likes a story before she goes to bed. Sometimes two.
We'll read one each.
They've got it covered. Come on. You'll be brilliant.
-But phone if you need me.
The procedure went reasonably smoothly, under the circumstances.
We've fitted stents to each of the arteries,
as they were all in pretty woeful shape, to be honest.
Is he out the woods yet, Doctor?
I can't say for sure.
I'm surprised it's taken so long for something like this to happen, really.
-Well, what do you mean?
-Because of the weight?
He's been walking around with a time bomb in his chest.
-Just to come right out the blue like that, though...
-It wasn't out the blue.
No. Mr O'Hara was probably experiencing a heart attack for several hours
before he went into arrest.
He should come round in a wee while. You can see him then.
I mean her!
-You're his wife!
-You're a nurse!
You didn't even notice he was sick! I knew.
As soon as he walked in that door, I knew something wasn't right.
Usually, when he walks through that door, you open a packet of biscuits,
even if you know I am trying to make him healthy.
-All you've done is make him miserable.
-Not in front of the wean.
I'm not a wean.
Why are you even here?
This is the family room, and you are not family.
I have got every right!
Because if it wasn't for me, he'd be lying dead in your flat!
Aye, that's right, while you were off helping a bunch of strangers,
I was starting your husband's heart with my bare hands.
I phoned the ambulance.
I watched the paramedics stick a tube down his throat
and I watched the doctors shock him back to life.
You're upsetting my daughter.
Well, I'm sorry, but she needs to know the truth.
Thanks for all you've done.
But you need to leave.
Tattie's right -
Aye, this is us.
They asleep already?
Out for the count. Both of them.
You're a natural.
Sorry, I didn't mean...
Don't be a daftie.
I'm around weans all the time - there's some days the Oyster's heaving with them.
Do you think I stand there pining?
Stella, I don't think you've ever pined.
Well, I'm not about to start now, so shut up and put the kettle on.
Is Bob OK as well? I mean...
Bob's got me, and I've got him. We're fine.
Yeah. You are.
The tea's not gonnae make itself.
Trust me, I'm a professional.
Milk, no sugar.
I'll tell you what, I'll give you a biscuit
if you can tell me what that picture is.
Mugs are in the cupboard above the fridge, tea bags are in there.
You really are part of a family now, aren't you?
Aye. What about it?
Nothing. I'm just wondering what that's like.
There's only me and Raymond, really.
You're not feeling sorry for yourself, are you?
Maybe...maybe a bit.
I know I've got a cheek with Big Bob being in hospital,
but it's times like this that get you thinking
about what you've got and what you haven't.
Deek, you know me.
You know the life I used to have and you know the life I've got now.
I've got a job and a husband,
I'm part of a family, like you said.
I know, you've done amazing.
-No, I'm not trying to act as if I'm dead brilliant, I'm just...
What I'm trying to say is...
I wouldn't have any of that if it wasn't for you.
When I was on the streets, you came and found me.
-You brought me back.
So if all this can happen for somebody like me,
then it can happen for somebody like you.
Or you're gonnae answer to me.
It was me that started him on this path, y'know -
stuffing his face with rubbish while he was still in the pram.
-"Oh, Gran" what?
It's the truth.
-I never knew you were religious.
I found these down the back of the chair.
I've never been one for the church, but...
..but I think that maybe, if you talk,
Well, I'll say a prayer with you, if you want.
Oh, I wasn't praying.
No, I was just telling the man upstairs...
if he takes that boy away...
..if he takes that boy away from me,
when my time comes, I'll make his life hell.
Listen, Bob is going nowhere.
Oh, you're young, hen,
you don't know how cruel life can get.
Gran, I'm a mother too. I've got my wee boy...
I know, I know, Kelly.
And I hope...
..you never have cause to feel the way I feel right now.
You can see him.
are you in pain?
It's not too bad, really.
I can't remember what happened.
I was in the house...
How did I get here?
Iona found you.
We don't need to talk about this. You should sleep.
The doc thinks he's doing pretty good, all things considered.
Your husband's stable, at least.
What happens now?
There's nothing more to do tonight.
We need to give him time to recover.
The next step is we'll look at sitting him up and getting him moving.
My phone's in my coat, I'm gonnae text Nicole.
Is he out of danger, then, aye?
-For the time being.
-What do you mean by that?
Bob needs to change.
That time bomb I talked about? It'll start ticking again if he doesn't take better care of himself.
We'll make sure he does, Doctor. Thanks.
-Well, they're coming home, so I guess so.
She worships Big Bob, doesn't she?
Nic, if you wanted to be helpful, you could keep an eye on school stuff for her.
-Pick up any assignments or whatever.
You still haven't told her?
Actually, Leyla, I can't help her with school stuff,
because I'm planning on leaving.
-What are you talking about?
-I've got a job.
-OK, a traineeship.
-Training to do what?
Be a hairdresser.
When did all this happen?
Don't do the disappointed face. This is going to make everyone's lives easier.
What do you need the money for? If you've got your eye on a dress or something, I can help out.
Yeah(!) I make huge decisions based on what's missing from my wardrobe,
-I'm stupid like that.
-Nobody said you were stupid.
-You're right about one thing - it is a huge choice.
-Yeah, my choice.
You don't think it might be worth discussing it, even?
I already know what you think, don't I? That's not a discussion, that's a waste of time.
I just wonder what your father would say...
-Don't bring my dad into this.
-Because he's not here.
No. He isn't.
What are you doing?
Christina's coming over, I'm gonnae make her a pizza or something.
Shh. I didn't want to wake you.
I just needed to see you.
You saved my life today.
Well, if I did, it was for my own benefit.
I need you in that shop.
..I need you in my life.
And not just as folk that work together.
And not just as friends.
Visiting time's finished, I'm afraid.
I know. I'm just leaving.
I'll see you really soon.
Listen, thanks, guys. Yous have been great.
Aye, I'm sure we'll be all right. We can't all pile in at visiting hours.
-Aye, your ma'll probably set up a rota.
-Well, there's enough of you to make sure he doesn't get lonely.
Aye, and enough of us to make sure he gets better.
Right, c'mon, let's go home.
Iona phoned, and I said I'd meet her for a drink.
You're kidding on?
I'll not be long. If you're done in, just go up the road.
It's not that, it's just that Tattie might be there.
-Aye, there was a bit of an atmosphere before.
-What, with Iona?
-That's old news.
Was it horrible?
There was a couple of hours when we thought...
..when we thought he might...
I'm not stupid,
I know he's not some super-fit guy...
..but thinking I could just lose him...
..that he'd be gone for ever...
I know he's not my real dad, but he loves me
and he worries about me
and he's proud of me.
Those are the kind of people you need in your life, aren't they?
-I'm going to keep his job open for as long as it takes,
and if head office have a problem with that, they can get to...
He'll be back behind the counter before you know it.
He's just...he's just so good with the customers.
Folk just love him.
Well, he's a lovely guy, so...
Listen, I really appreciate you coming out, I do.
You're my pal and you've had a hellish day -
-course I'm gonnae come.
-That's it, isn't it?
When things go bad, you find out who your friends are.
And you find out the ones that close ranks when it suits them.
It looks like Bob's going to be OK, right?
Well, is that not all that matters?
Do you not want things to go back to the way they were?
Well, what do you want?
Right, where's your man with the drinks?
Stella'll keep an eye on her.
-You sure about that?
There you go, pal. What are you after, son?
A beer, a lemonade and a glass of red.
-Is the red for Iona?
Better make it a small one.
Better make it a non-existent one - she's tanned a bottle already.
Good luck breaking that news to her.
I'm sorry, I'm just not quite getting this.
What's so tricky to get?
Well, he's married to somebody else.
Speak of the devil.
Have you told Bob any of this?
She only let me speak to him for a couple of seconds...
That cow wouldn't let me in!
-I heard that.
-You were meant to.
-I'm going home.
-Back to the Ukraine, aye? Brilliant, send us a postcard.
Aye, that's probably best. Don't want to get knocked up again, do you?
-What's going on?
One more word and I'll do it again.
-Not in this pub, you won't.
-We're going. Come on, Tattie.
You coming up?
Yeah, in a minute.
Not for packing in school, I haven't changed my mind,
but I should have spoke to you about it.
It's not too late. We can talk about it now.
I just don't see the point. I'm not going to change my mind.
So you keep saying. Are you trying to convince me or yourself?
That was straight out of the Michael Brodie Book Of Parenting.
I'm gonnae go to bed.
Nic, I'm sorry for trying to invoke the spirit of your father.
I'm not going to tell you what to do.
I know you're grown-up for your age, you can make your own choices.
Just, please, make sure you think it through properly.
Right, let me see.
Didn't even leave a mark.
Good, that means you can kid on it never happened.
You're joking, aren't you?
Look, Iona, see on a day like this,
people's emotions are all over the place.
Mine aren't. I ken exactly how I feel.
Your head must be buzzing after winning all that money.
I don't care about the money.
What, you don't care about 50 grand?
Look, you should understand.
See the way you feel about Wee Bob,
-that's how I feel about Big Bob.
Come on, think about it, how would you feel if you nearly lost him?
It's not the same.
Because we're together, you're not.
I'm sorry, I didn't mean it to sound nasty.
That's all right.
I suppose it does sound a wee bit mental,
me fighting over him while he's still in hospital.
But seeing him like that,
seeing him nearly die,
it made me realise just how much he means to me.
Right, and you don't think Tattie feels that way, an' all?
I don't know.
Look, Iona, they've been through hunners of terrible stuff, together.
Right, and they're going through this - together.
She's his wife.
You know how it goes - for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health.
Not OK -
cos if it wasn't for me, it would be till death do us part today.
What time are you going in tomorrow?
Early. First thing.
Will you give us a shout?
You're not really going to wake her up, are you?
She worships that big lump of a son of mine, doesn't she?
Aye, but that doesn't matter.
You cannae stay with him just for her.
What are you talking about?
I asked you this morning
what would happen when Christina moved out,
and you couldn't answer me.
A lot has happened since then.
Oh, yes, it has.
So can you answer me now?
Molly, for goodness' sake.
Look, you just slapped the face off Iona.
Does part of you want Bob to go back with her?
Does part of you wish that he hadn't woken up this morning?
Molly, I swear to you I never wanted that for a second.
Well, then, what do you want?
To nurse a sick man back to health and leave him when he's well enough?
Leave him when your daughter doesn't need a daddy?
Please, I don't know, just stop, please.
I wasn't trying to get at you.
But we both know
that you're going to need to make your mind up.
Bob? Are you all right?
It's great to hear your voice.
Aye, of course.
Right, sure, I'll be there right away.
So, did you get much sleep?
On and off, aye.
Listen, I never thanked you properly last night for saving my life.
-Don't be daft...
-You did, though.
I suppose I did, aye.
You know there's that Japanese thing?
If you save a man's life, you're responsible for him for ever?
That doesn't seem fair.
No, not really.
Remember I went out with that Japanese guy? It was him that told me.
Well, his dad was Japanese - he was really from Clydebank.
I'm talking too much, amn't I?
I do that when I'm nervous.
So...should I be?
Nervous? I mean, you got them to let me in early...
Aye, I needed to see you.
Well, I'm right here, Bob.
As long as you need me.
Whenever you need me.
Oh, Iona...you see, that's the thing.
It's not you that I need.
You couldn't stay away, could you?
Bob asked me to come.
No, you don't see,
you don't see anything,
you don't understand.
I understand real life, Iona.
I know what being with Bob means,
in the real world,
not your little happy-ever-after version
where he worships you and writes you songs
and everything is wonderful.
I'm not going to get my happily ever after, am I?
Bob chose the real world.
He chose you.
He chose you, and you don't even know if you want him.
You saw Iona, then?
Her heart's broke too.
You sent her away.
I did it for you.
You have to do it for yourself.
You have to change, you have to get better,
you have to take responsibility for your life.
I'm going to change.
You've said it before.
I want to believe you, really I do.
Tattie, I will.
I mean, we've been miserable for weeks now.
Wasn't like that at the start, though, eh?
We were happy.
I think we can be happy again.
You. Me. Christina. All of us.
If that's the only way we can get back...
..then that's worth fighting for.
I think so too.
Thanks for dropping by. Do you want a coffee?
No, I'm OK, thanks.
Yesterday's wages plus a wee bonus.
You're a wee dynamo, by the way. I've already had like 15 e-mails wanting appointments.
Yeah, I took in about six in person as well.
Brilliant. I'm gonnae be rushed off my feet. Or should I say, "we", my humble apprentice.
Well, I wanted to talk to you about that.
I'll pay you properly - above minimum wage, plus you can keep your tips.
-That'd be amazing, obviously.
But I don't think I can take the job.
I mean, I don't see, but OK.
I just think I should stay on at school and get my Highers.
I was wondering if there was a way I could do both,
-but that would just limit my options.
Do accounting, then you could help with the books.
Yeah. Or graphic design, and then I could do all your ads and promotional stuff.
Now you're thinking.
But, seriously, get a wee college course that'll get you a day off
-during the week to come and learn the noble art of the scissors.
-Really? You think that might work?
Never mind "might" - hash-tag have your cake and eat it.
You were supposed to wake me up.
You can see Bob at visiting this afternoon.
The hospital are being strict now - it's a good sign.
How was he?
He's going to get better, Molly.
And everything is going to be all right.
-Can I have a receipt for them, please?
-Eh, is this for the community centre?
Then consider it a donation from your local Mini Market.
Is that not against company policy?
Stuff company policy.
I like your style.
Iona here's going rogue on us.
-Make the most of it.
-Oh, aye, is that Lottery money burning a hole in your pocket?
It's nothing to do with money.
The area manager gave me a formal warning for shutting the shop up early yesterday.
I told him where he could stick his formal warning.
So, one week from today, I'm out of here.
-Good for you.
-Well, when something like that happens to someone you care about,
it makes you realise what matters in life.
I know what you mean.
Listen, thanks, Iona.
What will you do?
I don't know.
I hope...whatever you do makes you happy.
I know you were a good friend to Bob. We both do.
I want you to get ready, Angie. I'm sending her to Newcastle.
The last lassie that got sent topped herself.
Gabriel, please, I'll do anything you want, please.
No, no, Angie, I cannae.
So you're back, then, are you?
Listen, this is still my pub, I employ who I want.
They were hidden.
Well, if I found them, Bob'll sniff them out in a minute.
Oh, welcome back!
