What's happened to you?
What do you mean? What does it look like?
It looks like a Belisha beacon! What have you done to her?
Just a bit of fake tan.
I don't believe it.
-Let me try and delete them.
-Leave them as they are.
I want it taken off!
We'll need the messages as evidence.
You went to the police!
To tell them about Mark Vincent, it's him they want.
You must really hate me, even more than you love your own son.
One of the people you put out of their homes is my grandson.
So unless you're willing to accept Mr Henderson's very reasonable offer,
I'm not likely to forget that.
And one, two, three, turn.
You guys are up early, eh?
Aye, well, it's a big day, isn't it?
And, Madonna, two, two, three, curtsey.
Oh, that was lovely, darling.
What are you saying that for?
Well, just because...
There's nae point in patronising her, Gina. It's a serious competition.
-But she's allowed to have some fun.
-Aye, well, it'll no' be fun when she's up there embarrassing herself
in front of all the other weans, will it?
No, it won't.
Exactly. Right, one, two, three,
turn. Do it again.
And two, two, three. Curtsey!
-I'll go make us some breakfast, shall I?
Again. One, two, three, turn.
Right, folks, big day.
Two, two, three...
Has anybody seen...?
-I looked it out last night. Where is it?
-Two, two, three.
Folk in this place!
Come on, then. Are we ready?
Eh? Madonna, darling, gonnae just put a wee bit more effort into it?
I said we'd meet Raymond at eight o'clock at the flat.
-Remember you've got to smile. Come here.
-Scarlett, will you come on?
Aye, Jimmy, I know.
-It doesnae take two of us to pick up a set of keys.
-I know, but...
-I'll sort her out here and then I'll come and help you, all right?
-I just thought the pair of us could...
Darling, open up.
I told you to brush your teeth earlier. Away and go and brush them!
And use Mummy's special toothpaste!
I want to see your nice big white smile!
I'll not be long.
All right! The wanderers return!
I'll get some boxes in and then me and Scarlett are...
What the hell?
Vincent. He's done the same to Molly's.
His boys were fixing them up and, well...
We're due to move in today.
-I promised Madonna we'd be in for Christmas.
-I know, I'm sorry, Jim.
Look, it's not my fault that Vincent's boys wrecked the place.
If I'd the money to fix it, I would.
-But at the moment...
Well, could you speak to Gina?
See if you could stay a bit longer?
No, I'll fix it. I'll sort it myself.
-Come on, Jimmy.
-No, I made a promise and I'm keeping it.
The Mullens are moving back in.
Oh, Madonna, which box did you say you put them in?
Honest... Put something down for one minute...
Scarlett, do you think you...?
What's happened here?
Gina, did you move Madonna's angel wings?
-What? Why would I?
-Well, why would anybody move anything?!
Calm down, they're going to be here somewhere.
Gina, don't tell me to calm down. Half her costume's missing!
Right. Maybe I'll just let you get on with it, eh?
Scarlett, you're not going to believe this...
What's going on? I thought you were gonnae get packed and ready.
You're not going to believe the morning I've had.
Madam's in there in one of her moods, half her costume's missing,
and Gina's no' been any help.
The flat is wrecked.
Vincent and his mob, they've torn it apart.
It's like nobody realises I'm running ragged here trying to sort everything out.
-We're going to have to fix it.
-You're no' kidding!
Now, look, you could maybe get in touch with that builder boy.
What's his name? I'll check the wiring and the plumbing.
You can maybe nick out and get some new shelves
-and paint them, and get cracking on the...
-Whoa, whoa. Paint and shelves?
-What are you talking about, Jimmy?
-The flat, they've done a number on it!
Aye, well, get Raymond to help you. He's the landlord.
We do it or it doesnae happen.
And how we're going to pay for it, I don't know.
I think we might have to dip into our Christmas money.
Who put them in there?!
Are you listening to me? We're gonnae have to sort it!
Aye, all right, I'll give the builders a call frae across the street.
You'll get the paint an' all?
-I'll sort that an' all.
-Right, I'll see you back at the flat.
-Right. Madonna, we need to go!
Where are you going?
Where we should have been ten minutes ago -
-at the salon getting her hair and make-up done.
-See you at 12!
Yeah, OK, that's you booked in for half past four wi' Robbie.
OK, thanks. Bye.
I'll take your jacket off in a minute. Where is he?
Right, I'm here! Don't panic!
I'm really sorry, I'm going to need to get somebody else to sort you out -
I've got a beauty emergency to deal wi'.
-Come on, hurry up, you.
Hey, I've got it under control.
I was having a wee think
-about what I could do...
-I want her to look like this.
You've got an hour so get cracking.
What else have I forgotten? Oh, aye.
Eye drops. Make your eyes all sparkly, eh?
And you behave for Robbie.
-Where are you going?
-Nae fizzy drinks.
If she gets thirsty, give her a drink of water.
I'm not wanting her teeth all stained. I'll be a minute.
Robbie, you're gonnae have to talk to her. She's going mental.
Lighten up. It's just a wee bit of a laugh, that's all.
Right, you, come on, sit up here.
Right, I've deleted it, it's fine.
I don't understand. Why are they doing this?
I didn't do anything!
It's OK. We're fixing it.
How? We've spent a whole night taking pages down
and we're still finding stuff.
It's gonnae be fine. I'm here, I'm gonnae help you.
Well, who else is going to help you?
Bob? I bet he can't even find the on switch.
I appreciate it.
And I'm sorry I didn't tell you about me and Alice.
It's fine. You're my friend,
no matter what.
Now, come on, we've sat in this room all night.
-Let's go get a coffee or something.
-I don't know.
Outside, it's like...
I can feel everyone staring at me and thinking...
No-one's thinking anything.
Come on, me and you, we're going out there together.
Oh, hold on, wait a minute.
What time do you call this?
You gonnae give us a hand with this?
You look knackered. If the pills are keeping you up at night,
-why don't you talk to Miriam about it?
-It's not the pills.
Well, why don't you just go back to bed?
We're no' due at the clinic till 12 o'clock.
All right, well, I thought we could maybe go out for dinner tonight.
You know, just the two of us. We might have something to celebrate later on.
Aye. Well, we'll see, eh?
What are you like?
I can read you like a book.
You've got nothing to worry about.
I've got a really good feeling about today.
Right, I'm away to do my shopping.
And nae peeking at your presents while I'm out.
-See you later.
FRONT DOOR SHUTS
SWITCHES RADIO OFF
Well, she was, she just had to nip out.
I don't know if she called him.
Oh, wait a minute, here she is.
-Ma, Ma, it's Jimmy.
I'm sorry, Jimmy. Sorry, it was my mistake.
Aye. No, I promise I'll tell her as soon as I see her.
Aye, as soon as she gets in. Right. OK. Bye.
What is all this about the flat being trashed?
Where's Madonna? Have you no' started yet?
Jimmy says you need to phone the builders and he says he needs the stuff by this afternoon.
She's in the wee lassies' room.
-Robbie! I don't have time for this. Come on.
Ma! Jimmy's counting on you. So he's phoned the furniture movers...
Can you not see I've got my hands full?
Fine. Tell that to Jimmy, then.
Tell him you'll help him tomorrow or something. Don't leave him there on his own.
The whole world doesn't stop cos Jimmy's got a bit of work to do.
If Jimmy wants, he can pick up a bit of paint
and he can sort out the builders himself.
Ma! I'm not gonnae play piggy in the middle. Can the pair of youse not just...?
come on out the toilet.
Missed a bit.
All right, stranger? And where have you been hiding lately?
-Nowhere. Just getting ready for Christmas and that. The usual.
-And what about wee Bob?
I've not seen him in ages either.
Aye, he's fine.
Look, if you're not in a rush, we could grab a coffee or something.
Oh, I cannae.
I've got an appointment at the clinic later on to find out...
Right. Well, listen, good luck.
Good luck? What's that for?
I was just saying that Scarlett and Jimmy are moving in,
-so...fingers crossed, eh?
-You've not heard, then?
Jimmy was here earlier. Apparently, the place is a tip.
-Sounds like Raymond's totally done them over.
The flat. Complete mess by all accounts. Absolutely trashed.
Well, I don't know what they were expecting, the way Raymond's been recently.
You must be livid, what with all that work you've got to do.
Well, I feel for them, but I'll not be able to help. Not at my age.
No, I meant your place.
What do you mean, my place?
Jimmy thinks it's even worse.
Well, at least they won't be wondering where you're off to. See you later.
What about if you curl that a bit more under there?
I tell you what -
how about you go down the stair and get me more of that glitter spray?
Of course, darling.
Before I break your neck.
Here, you, what's all this I hear about my flat being trashed?
Aye, I know, I've just been speaking to Jimmy.
Well, I am not moving.
I am not staying in a dump.
If he doesnae fix my place up, I'm staying put at Deek's.
Well, you will be staying put, then, if your place is anything like ours.
Jimmy's up to his eyes in it over there.
What's all this?
What does it look like? We are off to the pageant.
Oh, I know that, I know that.
Oh, in the name of the wee man!
If you ask me, it's all a bit weird dressing wee weans like that.
It's no' right.
Exactly. And it's not just the kids.
The mums get trussed up like sequined turkeys an' all.
You would never have caught me entering a competition like that.
Quite right, Molly. I mean, it's beyond me
why anybody would haul their whole family out to America like that.
The wee lassie that wins it,
she gets to take part in one of the big American competitions.
The whole family get to go. I think it's in Atlanta or something like that, isn't it?
Um... What constitutes, like, a family?
I don't know - Mum, Dad, Granny, Granda, whatever.
I mean, it's up to six people.
Aye, well, uh-huh.
I suppose, I mean, I mean...
Obviously, I mean, it's all legitimate.
Gran, what about Madonna?
I'm sure Scarlett's got to know what's best for her own wee lassie!
And, I mean, the least we can do is to back her up.
-Aye, I know but...
-What are you standing there for?
-Come on! She's got a pageant to go to.
I've not got time.
-All right, Molly?
-I've not got the time.
-Your ma here?
-She's down the stairs.
-Look, I'm gonnae pop out and get that milk.
What do you make of this, Jimmy? Something else, eh?
We're no' ready yet - somebody's been taking his time.
You'll have to wait another half-hour.
-For youse to take us into the town.
You're kidding? What's the hold-up? I've been running about daft all day
trying to get started and I've not heard a word from you.
I've been up to my eyes in it in here all day.
Have you seen the state of it? I need your help, instead of nonsense about getting dressed up.
Don't give me that, Jimmy. It was you that said she had something.
You just don't get it, do you?
This is our home we're talking about!
Well, you tell her that. Because this could change her life, Jimmy.
-It's just a stupid kids' parade.
-There's nothing stupid about it!
It's a proper competition, and for your information,
it's not just about the weans, it's about the women an' all.
Oh, so we're going to have you walking up and down singing songs, an' all?
This is the most important thing in the world to her.
And if you'd stop banging on about DIY and listen to me,
you'd know about this, Jimmy!
Robbie, I need to go out.
I'm the one who's holding this together whilst you're getting dressed up and gallivanting about.
I'm no' having it!
Mum? What you doing?
Did you get things sorted with Jimmy?
Och, it disnae matter. Jimmy does what he always does.
Never listens to a word I tell him.
So you're leaving him to do the flat on his own?
Will folk stop going on about this flat?!
Here, what is the money for?
Kelly, gonnae please just keep this to yourself?
I don't believe it. They're writing about us on a blog now.
Maybe we should take a break?
It's not even pictures of me.
Look, we'll do something else. We could go shopping.
It's like they're trying to destroy my whole life,
and there's nothing I can do.
There's more stuff gone up online.
-I told you - just ignore it.
-And what's that going to do, exactly?
Well, why get upset when there's nothing that she can do?
If they think then they're getting to you, then they're just going to keep coming back.
Easy for you to say, hidden away in your garage.
She didn't mean it like that.
-I'm just tired.
Look, I can't make lunch.
Bob's off again and I need to look after the garage.
Not even half an hour?
I can't. But I will see you later, right?
Must be tough, being a girl working in a garage.
Tough for you too.
How do you mean?
..if it was me, and I was getting all the grief you're getting,
then I'd hope that my girlfriend would find the time
to be a bit more supportive.
Well...she's busy. They've got a lot on.
Yeah. Yeah, of course.
Do you fancy some cake?
Ten minutes, she said. That's been an hour and a half.
Sometimes Scarlett can be a right...
Your mummy thinks I'm stitched up the back, doesn't she?
-Where have you been?
-Oh, don't you start. It's murder up that town.
Up town? What you doing going...?
Like I've got nothing better to be doing than be standing here babysitting!
-Nae offence, hen.
-..what do you reckon?
For the Glamorous Mammy competition! They do it at the pageant.
Just for a laugh, I'm thinking of entering.
Listen, I need you to do me a favour.
FRONT DOOR OPENS
Right, you, I need your help.
Listen, which one of these boxes did I put my special party frocks in?
I don't know.
Oh, it's like living in the Blitz.
MOBILE PHONE CHIMES
Is this a picture of you?
In the bare scud?
-Give me that!
-Why are you sending folk this kind of thing?
I never sent it! Just give me it!
I will not. What are you thinking?
Give me it, you stupid old cow!
What's got into you?
Just leave me alone!
-Listen, do you have a minute?
-No. I've just had to cancel my lunch wi' him.
-I'm booked solid all the way through.
-I'm about later, though. Unless it's something urgent?
-No. No, of course not.
Right, so I'll see you later.
Christina, you OK?
Yeah, I'm fine. I just...
You want to tell me what's going on?
It's these messages and pictures someone's been sending me.
I don't know.
Sending you like how?
Email, Facebook, text -
What, like, some kind of joke?
Does this look like a joke to you?
10, 20 a day.
And they post stuff on my friends' pages as well.
As soon as I delete them, more just go up.
-OK, well, you need to stop deleting them.
From now on, you need to start saving them as evidence.
I can't, they're too horrible.
And you need to start thinking about making an official complaint.
This is harassment.
Also, Christina, in cases like these,
it's usually someone the victim knows.
-So maybe you should think who, or...
-You know what? I'm being stupid.
-Just forget I said anything, OK?
-Christina, you really should...
No, just forget what I said!
To hell with Christmas. That stuff was supposed to be here today.
Want me to send somebody over? Sort it, then.
Lenny, we need a cab!
What you come as?
I'm taking wee Madonna to her pageant and we're running late.
Can you no' help us?
It's all she talks about. Look at her wee face!
-Are you're gonnae break her heart?
-Fine. Jim, forget your pick-up, eh?
Take these two ladies into town.
Thanks, Lenny. You're a lifesaver. Come on.
Hold on! Hold on!
-Oh, my God, there's two of them.
What the hell are you doing here?
What do you think? I'm supporting my wee granddaughter.
Oh, there we go.
Wish us luck!
Wish us luck!
Wish us luck!
SHE SINGS TO HERSELF
-You all right?
-You look happy.
Yeah, I am. Do you need something fixing?
No. Nothing like that.
How's it going with you and Christina?
She told me about all the hassle she's been getting online.
Stupid? She seems pretty upset about it to me.
No, not her. Just the fact that she's letting it get to her.
I told her how, with things like these,
chances are she knows the person,
or it's someone she's just met.
-What, me? Why would you...?
-No, that's not what I meant.
She's my girlfriend!
And she's out of her mind with worry.
Look, Alice, you've got to be careful.
Nobody knows you round here, not really.
You don't want fingers to start pointing.
Why, cos we're two girls?
No, that's not what I mean either.
What I do mean is, you've got to start looking out for yourself.
Look, I know it's not romantic, but all this?
This is about keeping you safe.
Nobody needs to know who you are or why you're here.
This is it!
Oh, it's no' exactly Vegas, is it?
Right, you go and get her ready or we'll miss the first round.
-I'll go and get us registered.
-Right, OK, hen.
Come on, hen.
I'm here for the competition.
You don't say. Name?
I take it you do have a daughter?
What? Oh, aye, of course. She's wi' her granny.
Three of you. Marvellous.
Well, the first round will start shortly. Changing through there.
Hair and make-up in the bathrooms.
And if you are using glitter spray then please clean up after yourself.
we don't want another Cumbernauld on our hands.
Er... About the Little Miss Christmas Mammy competition?
I'm afraid the entries have closed.
Aw, surely you can slip me on that list?
Do you know how much organisation...?
-Me and Keith here cannae just drop everything...
I've been up since six this morning getting ready to come down here.
I've spent over 200 quid on this get-up and I want folk to see it.
Now, I can stand here all day or you can stick me on that list.
Which is it gonnae be?
Keith, get me a Christmas Mums registration form?
That'll be £200, please.
Plus another 50 for late registration.
-Scarlett, come on!
-She's just about to go on the stage!
The first round!
Count it. It's all there.
Do you think they'll be much longer?
It is going to be all right, isn't it?
No matter what way it works out?
Aye. Aye, course it is.
You know, part of me just wants to run out the door
and not even wait for what they have to say, do you know what I mean?
-I reckoned you'd be up to your neck in it over here so I brought you some lunch.
So how's it going?
Slowly. Mind you, it would be faster if my wife was here.
Aye, Robbie told me about you and Ma.
Nae sense in that woman sometimes.
Still going on about that stupid show.
You do know she's gone down there anyway?
Aye, there's a shock(!)
Anyway, well, I'm here now, so how can I help?
Well, you could maybe nip out and get some bits and pieces, eh?
-I've made a list here.
-There we are.
-I'll give you the card.
-You remember the PIN number?
I've told your ma we've had to dip into our Christmas money.
Right, cool. Nae worries, I'll get this.
# It's the most wonderful time of the year
# Ding, dong, ding dong
# With the kids jingle belling
# And everyone telling you be of good cheer
# It's the most wonderful time of the year
# Ding, dong, ding, dong
# It's the ha-happiest season of all... #
Which concludes the Divine Dreams Of Christmas round of the competition.
A big thank you to our sponsors, The Card Gallery of Milngavie.
We're going to take a quick break now,
but we'll be back with A Night At The Nutcracker Round.
Lights up, please.
Mums, this is your 15-minute call.
Calm down, Scarlett. You're doing fine.
Scarlett, Scarlett, look at that.
It's like Shirley Temple back from the dead.
Will you give it a rest? Where's Madonna?
I left her in the toilet. Listen, have you got the wings for...?
Sssh! I'm no' wanting folk knowing what her costume is.
What are you doing letting her go to the toilet by herself?
Go and check on her!
All right, all right, keep the heid, keep the heid!
Are you in for the Glamorous Mum competition?
Oh, well, people do rather expect it of us.
I wasnae sure whether to enter myself.
Oh, no, really, no, you mustn't be put off.
competitions aren't just about the winners.
You really think you should be touching the electrics?
Will you stop worrying? It'll be fine.
They must have been just about finished when they...
See? No big deal.
-I'll fix it.
-Aye, I know, but you've still got half the house to do.
And then you've got to clean it and tidy it before you call the movers.
-And then you've got to...
-It's Christmas. It's a time to be
in your own home with your own family. It's just a shame that some other folk dinnae realise that.
Aye, but you know what my ma's like.
She's been talking about nothing else for weeks.
She could be homeless and she'd still not give up on going today.
Hopefully it's not going to come to that.
Starting with me getting some sparking supplies.
-Have you still got that card?
Not unless you want to eat your dinner in the dark.
There you are! I thought we were going Christmas shopping?
Oh, no, I...didn't feel like it.
Don't tell us there's been more.
I don't want to talk about it. I'm sorry, I just...
I just need to think about something else.
That's fine. Let's go to the pictures. That'll take your mind off it.
I don't know.
You two been in here all day? All right for some.
Actually we were just thinking about going to the pictures.
I was going to see if you wanted to get some food.
Don't let me interrupt. I'll see you tomorrow.
So what do you fancy? We can either order here,
or we can go over to The Ship?
Actually...I've kind of got this family thing going on tonight.
Well, I can't stay out, but maybe I could come to your party.
We can talk.
Like I said, it's kind of a family thing.
I have to go.
-I'll see you tomorrow.
Do you want to sit down?
I really thought I was.
I was sure it was going to work this time, Bob.
We'll... We'll try again.
They say you know inside. And I was convinced that I did.
I really thought I knew it.
It'll be all right.
Aye, that's great.
What do you mean it's not gone through? It must be some mistake.
-Just a second.
Jimmy, it isn't a mistake. There's no money in there.
What you talking about? That's our savings account.
You've just used it.
Actually, I didnae. I tried to, but it was empty.
So I used my own money.
Sorry, listen, I'll call you back.
What do you mean? There was £500 in that account.
Where's it gone?
Scarlett? That stupid thing with Madonna?
-I promised I wouldnae say anything.
-Oh, I'm sure you did!
Covering up for her just like all the rest of them.
Egging her on. Cos it's all just one big laugh, isn't it?!
Jimmy, that's not what I was...
I was just trying to help.
Please put your hands together once more for young Britney.
A beautiful rendition of I Dreamed A Dream.
She wasnae that good.
Thanks so much, everyone, for all your support.
Don't let Britney's talent intimidate you.
Oh, we'll try not tae.
OK. You've done really good up to now. Now it's down to this.
You need to go on there and you need to sing,
show them what a great singer you are. Just like we practised.
Madonna. Here we go! On you go.
Right, next up we have a new entrant, Madonna Mullen.
# Silent night
# Holy night
# All is calm, all is bright
# Round yon virgin mother and child
# Sleep in heavenly... #
Come on. You know this.
Madonna Mullen, everyone.
Ladies and gents, here is the proud mum.
Say a few words, Mrs Mullen.
We don't want to take the limelight away from our little beauties.
Eh... Hello, everybody.
One hundred and...
-My name's Scarlett, Madonna's mammy.
I hope you'll agree, she's done really well today.
Like all the wee lassies here.
Tell them about yourself.
Er...we're a big family. Madonna's my youngest.
She's not had it easy over the past couple of years.
Cos she's, er...
I've not been well and she's had to support me.
The thing with having cancer....
Aye, it's not been easy for her, and she's been really brave.
My whole family's been brave. Braver than I could ever be.
And they all got me through it.
Aye, anyway, I'm not saying that's why I think Madonna should win this,
all I'm saying is.....I just want you all to know,
that she's the bravest wee lassie that I've ever met.
And...I just want her to be happy.
Jimmy! Jimmy, wait!
What did you think?
What did I think? Are you out your mind?
I know she wasnae perfect,
but she was brilliant in all the other rounds.
She put her heart into it. I'm so proud of her.
Still pretending it's about her, eh?
But it was.
That, in there, what you said in front of everyone...
..telling them everything that had happened.
I'm sorry, Jimmy. It wasn't how it sounded.
To me it sounded like a woman who'd sold out to get her own way.
You know, it would mean the world to me
to see Madonna up there singing her heart out.
Darlin', that's all I was doing.
Jimmy! Jimmy, come back.
I'm sure we can all agree
what a wonderful job these young ladies have done up here today.
We've seen them sing. We've seen them dance.
We've seen them transform themselves.
Come on, then.
But in the end, there can only be one winner.
Which is why this year's
Little Miss Christmas Pageantess 2012 is...
Oh! I don't know what to say. Thank you!
And where is the very brave Mrs Mullen that's...
-Madonna, come on, darlin'.
-Excuse me. Is there a problem?
-Jimmy, what you doing?
-You're damn right there's a problem.
Jimmy. What's gotten into you?
Sir, this is a Little Miss Christmas...
Aye? Well, you can shove it!
COLLECTIVE GASP OF HORROR
Ladies and gentlemen, please bear with us.
We've a wee technical issue.
Are you OK, Britney? I really enjoyed your singing.
I don't think we need to be patronised by the likes of you.
She embarrassed herself in front of all those children in there.
She hardly embarrassed herself. She was great!
Oh! I wondered how long it would take you to gloat.
I wasnae gloating...
But who needs talent these days when you can have a cancer sob story?
Some people will make up anything to win.
You don't know what you're saying. I could have lost everything.
Of course you could. But instead here you are, winning competitions.
Is that what you think?
You think I'd do that just to win?
Are you telling me you wouldn't?
What was I thinking? Bringing wee Madonna into all this.
With folk like you who'll sink to any depths! You're disgusting.
Don't try and pretend you're any different from the rest of us.
I saw you in there.
Oh! We won. What's wrang with you? We won!
Aye, well. You know what? We don't want it.
We won for all the wrang reasons.
What are you talking about? Of course we want it!
-Darling, you don't really want that trophy, do you?
Well, then, you can all shove it.
Jimmy, darlin', I'm really sorry.
I don't know what I was thinking.
I've been so stupid.
I'm really sorry.
Madonna, darlin', Mummy's been so stupid.
Come on, you two. We're going.
Is that your consolation prize?
You really need this, don't you? Here - HAVE IT!
I don't believe it. Keith!
It was weird.
Going in I could tell Stella was sure,
she was so sure,
that we were going to get good news.
That the doctor was going to tell us
something that would change our lives forever...
and make everything all right.
And do you know what I was thinking?
I was trying to remember if I'd put money in the parking meter.
How crazy's that?
It takes time for any long-term medication to find a balance
with your body. The pills will work.
This is it though, isn't it? It's not going to change.
I just have to get used to it.
Trust me, things will get better.
The worst thing you can do is take yourself off the medication now.
Have you spoken to Stella?
Nah. After everything else she's been going through,
she doesn't need this to worry about.
Bob, you're her husband. If it was me, I'd want to know.
Speak to her.
I was wondering, could you give this to Kelly-Marie for me?
Sorry, but I said to her I wasn't going to be able to make it tonight.
Could you not give it to her yourself?
Aye, I just wanted to find out how you'd got on today.
God, Stella, I'm sorry.
No, it's fine. They were dead good with us.
Right. And what about Bob?
Aye, he was great.
I just...sat there thinking about how I'd let him down.
Come on. He would never say that.
Course not. But I could tell. He could hardly look at me.
Stella, you're just going to need to give it time.
That's what everybody keeps saying,
but it doesn't make it any easier, does it?
As if they'd just sit there and wait for it to happen.
I'm just saying, you need to be grateful.
With Bob about, you know,
that'll get you through, no matter what happens.
There you go again, acting as if it's not going to happen. It is.
I'm just saying, even if it doesnae...
It's going to happen.
I don't care what anybody says. We're going to fight fae this.
I get it, Stella.
No, you don't. I know you're trying, but you don't.
The only ones that understaun' what this feels like are me and Bob.
That is because it means everything tae us.
So tell Jimmy and Scarlett I was asking for them.
I'll catch you later.
Aye, see you later, mate.
You all right?
Aye. I'm fine.
Gina, I'm worried about leaving wee Madonna on her own.
Ach, away, she's fine.
She's as happy as Larry watching telly in her room.
Let youse get on, then, eh?
Jimmy, I'm so sorry about everything.
I just wanted something nice to look forward to, you know.
That wasnae me being sick, or skint or figuring out
if we had enough money to put a turkey on the table.
-This is the first Christmas in three year
when I've not been worried about whether it's going to be my last.
I was looking at myself and thinking...
"Look at the state of you. What you done with your life?"
I know it's stupid.
I just didn't want to be boring.
Sweetheart, the one thing that naebody could ever say about you
is that you're boring.
You've got Madonna. You've got the family. You've got me.
And you've got your house...albeit we dinnae stay there just now.
But...I don't think we're doing too badly, do you?
So come on.
I tried my best. It's still a wee bit of a state.
It'll be fine.
These lights were working earlier on.
Do you like it?
I... I don't know what to say.
How did you...?
Well, if I'd left it up to you two, nothing would have got done.
Everybody did a bit.
It's good to be back.
We've got enough food to feed an army.
You must be knackered with all that pageanting.
You all right?
Aye, I just...
No, not really.
Bob. Look at me.
We're gonnae be all right. We cannae let this get us down.
Look, we've had a crap day. We're disappointed.
But sooner or later, we're gonnae get the news we're after.
It'll happen. I promise.
Right, come on.
Stella. Look, I don't really feel up to this tonight.
I cannae face the rest of them.
All right, well, we'll just leave it. They're not going to miss us.
No. No, there's no point in that.
-You could be doing with a night out.
Really. Just tell them that I needed to sort something with work.
Are you sure?
Aye, I'm sure.
MUSIC AND LIGHT CHATTER
I've not seen you all week. School been keeping you busy?
Something like that.
Did you get all that school web-thingy sorted out?
Bob. I don't want to think about school...or anything else.
No Alice tonight? You havenae fallen out, have you?
We don't have to do everything together.
She's nice. I like her.
Listen, me and your mother were thinking,
why don't you invite her over for Christmas?
Well, it's better than her being on her own, isn't it?
Uh... Yeah, I'll see.
Right, well... Whatever you want, then.
-All right, darlin'. Hiya!
-You all right, Mammy?
-What do you think?
I've been at Gina's for an hour waiting for you two.
And here you are throwing a party!
We didn't know about it either, did we?
Aye, right! Right, where's the glasses?
Might as well drink this.
You still trying to shift that?
It's lovely mixed with a wee bit of ginger.
Is that right?
-Aye, go on, try some, son.
Aye, well, it's an acquired taste!
Right, I'd like to raise a special toast
to a special Christmas mum.
-Shut it, you.
ALL: To Scarlett!
Right, come on.
Come on what?
You're not getting off that lightly.
If you're a proper star, we want to see you performing for us.
I'm no' singing in here!
Come on! Move your backside!
I am not singing!
Aye, all right, then.
# Have yourself a merry little Christmas
# Let your heart be light
# From now on our troubles will be out of sight
ALL: # Have yourself a merry little Christmas
# Make the Yuletide gay
# From now on our troubles will be far away... #
# Here we are as in olden days
# Happy golden days of yore
# Faithful friends who are dear to us
# Gather near to us once more
# Through the years we all will be together... #
-I'm so proud of you, I really am.
I mean it.
Merry Christmas, darlin'.
# And have yourself a merry little Christmas now. #
Oh, my God.
There's pictures of me all over the internet now.
I really don't know how much more of this I can take.
Why are you going through my phone?
This internet stuff. It only began after I started seeing you.
You think I've got something to do with it?
I want to tell her the truth.
I want to tell her about me.
Why've you been ignoring me?
Don't play games with me.
I don't like it when women do that to me, Christina.
How do you know my name?
