You brought that thief Greg into our home, and he took every last penny!
I hired you because I'm separated from my wife, and I don't want
to complicate my life with other relationships at the moment.
Gareth left it. For you and Grace.
Maybe it'll help you with the funeral.
I've just got to get my dad's money back to him.
There's nothing anybody can do.
Yes, there is. I'll lend you the money.
Was that nice?
Gina, it was wonderful.
Really? Did you like it?
It was great.
Ach, I'm glad I've not lost my touch.
Mind you, you know I'm a sucker for a decent bit of black pudding.
I'm glad you enjoyed it. I got it on special.
It's a Stornoway.
A Stornoway! You've spoiled me this morning.
You shouldn't have gone to this much trouble.
There was no need. Yes, there was.
This doesn't go halfway to saying thank you for what you're doing.
The money, the difference it's going to make,
it'll keep you in black pudding for a while. HE CHUCKLES
Well, maybe now you can put this business with Greg behind you,
look to the future again.
Ach, don't. The thought of having something to look forward to.
These past few weeks...
I've just not been able to imagine it. Now you can.
Maybe we both can?
Anyway, I brought this over.
Now, you don't want to be carrying that much money around
with you all day, so you better go see Murdoch as soon as you can.
The estate agents themselves said the Oyster is a good prospect.
Or it will be once Murdoch's out the picture.
You'll find a buyer within six months,
you'll be able to pay me back - and your dad.
I can't find that amount of money, not all at once.
So what'll happen?
What? What does that even mean?
Right, well, thanks for nothing.
I don't believe it.
Two days before the service and they're calling me now?
What is it? What's happened?
That was the funeral director's.
They're cancelling Gareth's service
unless the outstanding balance is paid up front.
It's nearly two grand.
What happened to the money that Gareth left you?
After all the baby stuff I had to buy...it barely covered the deposit.
I'm sorry, I wish I could help you out.
So, what happens now?
They said because Gareth's got no family, no estate,
he'll get a public health funeral.
Not even a headstone.
SHE SIGHS I need some space.
Can you look after Grace for a bit? I just need to go out.
I'm meant to be going to a meeting in town, I'm sorry, I can't.
It's fine. I'll take her with me. Hey.
What's soured her milk?
A bit more sympathy, please. She's having a hard time of it lately.
On the table where we eat? That is what causes salmonella.
Or botulism, or something.
Wow, I can see all those years of medical training
you gave up really paid off.
I'm just saying. This place is a right state.
Look, I'm sorry, I know this isn't an ideal situation for you.
That's an understatement.
Things have been so hectic we hardly seem to talk any more.
There's not been much to say.
Oh, I don't know.
I couldn't help but notice you going out all glammed up the other week.
Thought there might be a new guy on the scene.
I need to go and wash my hands.
Thanks, Gina. Thanks for going to so much effort.
Ach, wheesht, Murray, it's the least I could do.
Well, maybe we can have lunch some time. I'll see you later.
Morning. Was that Murray away there?
You two were very quiet last night, I didn't hear a thing.
Eileen... So, have you sealed the deal?
Get a grip, you!
He just came round to bring the money over.
We had breakfast, is all.
It was the only chance I had to see him.
Oh, right. I just thought...
Well, you certainly put on a fair show.
What do you want from me?
The man is lending me ?30,000.
Do you not think I should show him a bit of gratitude? Of course.
But we both know how far Murray's hoping that gratitude will go.
He's doing this because he's a decent guy and he cares.
Anyway, I'll see you later. Stella wants me downstairs.
Hey, you forgetting something?
Cheers, Gina, I know you've got a lot on the day,
it's just that Mark's lost his key. You're fine, darling. I'm here now.
Won't be long, all right? OK.
Have you got nothing to say to me? No?
You know, Gareth had no-one.
No-one in the whole world to look out for him,
but he trusted you, and look where he ended up.
That was quite a piece of cake.
You're a regular Mary Berry, aren't you?
How come you're selling the place?
Just time to move on, I guess.
So you don't come with the premises?
That is a pity. Still, you must have had plenty offers?
No, not yet, but it is early days.
Why, you interested?
No. Not my line, I'm afraid.
But I have some friends in the business world.
I'll mention you around. Thanks.
I could be doing with all the help I can get right now.
Oh, I wouldn't worry. A place like this?
I'm sure someone'll snap it up.
Keep the change.
Still, without you in it, they'd be missing a trick.
It'd be a shame for the Oyster to lose its pearl.
Who's that charmer?
Molly, stay here a minute, OK?
If I'd wanted to make ma own roll and sausage, I'd have stayed at home.
Dad? You all right?
Oh, aye, aye. Who was that?
Och, just a man giving a quote, nothing to worry about.
It's a wee bit of trouble with the boiler.
They're no too sure what it is.
You're kidding? First the television and now this?
These things happen. It's just bad luck.
If you're looking to see what your pals are up to,
the court pages are at the back.
You wanting something? Or are you just here to annoy me?
You know, you should be grateful I'm here.
I don't usually do this much work pro bono. Oh, yeah?
What's Latin for "beat it"? Up.
Easy, Lenny, I'm only here to help.
Our Spanish friends are paying top dollar for you
to have my, uh, sound business advice.
Keep your eye on me, more like.
Why don't we just get down to it?
As you know, I've been looking into your various going concerns
to see where we might clean some of this cash we have got coming in.
There's the Ship, you live there.
Amber Cabs, you've named after your daughter.
And the arcade?
Your man Brodie isn't exactly squeaky clean, is he?
But this? The Oyster?
I have to say, I think you've been missing a trick.
I've just spent a charming half-hour over there, met the manageress.
You know, she's probably never had a parking ticket.
And have you tried her sponge cake?
I don't know how she gets it so moist.
If you'd been looking properly...
you'd see I've hardly been ignoring the place.
I noticed. The odd touch of creative accounting.
And poor Aunt Bessie over there, she's none the wiser? Obviously.
And she's not likely to twig?
She's been a wee bit... distracted lately.
Well, your heart's in the right place.
But the cash volume we're talking about?
You're going to have to step it up a notch.
And how am I supposed to explain a few extra grand going in the tills?
An upsurge in the sale of biscuits?
The point is not the method,
the point is - that place is above suspicion.
It's like Happy Days over there, all milkshakes and Richie Cunningham.
And Gina? She's your very own Mrs C. She's whiter than white.
She's not all tea and scones.
Tell you, she's got her own problems.
You'll have to fill me in.
Still, I'm telling you, Lenny, that place is your dream.
You'd be a fool to let it slip through your fingers.
No, look, it's fine, if that's the way it's got to be...
Well, I'm sorry too.
Gina! I'm glad I caught you. I'd like to introduce you
to Mr McAllister. I met him at the centre.
He was looking for someone with local knowledge. Please, call me Alex.
He runs bars and restaurants. In fact, he's just bought a bar
in town, and he's looking for opportunities in this area.
So, I told him about the Oyster.
Murray here didn't hold back on singing its praises.
Or yours, for that matter.
I must admit it does sound like a great prospect.
And from the looks of it...it could be the sort of thing
I'm after. Right, well...
That's nice of you to say so.
So, Murray ran through some of the figures, mentioned the asking price.
You've been receiving offers, I take it?
There's been a slight issue with simplifying ownership.
But that's all sorted now.
Actually, Murray, it's not. But it will be today.
What's the hold-up?
There's a partner. Silent.
We're going to have to buy him out.
Might I ask who?
Just a local businessman. Lenny Murdoch?
Ah, I see.
"Businessman" is one way to put it.
So you know him? I do, and I'll be honest with you,
that does put a slightly different spin on things.
Look, if, like you say, you can
remove Lenny from the equation...
..you have my card.
Hopefully see you later.
You said you were going to go see Murdoch first thing!
I was. Look, I'll do it now. I just got held up.
Make sure you do. Men like Alex McAllister don't hang around.
Sorry, Gina. Had to get new keys cut for Mark.
What was that all about? Ach, the guy that was in with Murray,
he might be interested in buying the place.
That's once Lenny Murdoch's out the picture.
That's good, isn't it? A positive.
Yeah, it's been about the only one today.
Ach, I just had the estate agent's on the phone.
They're having second thoughts about the asking price
because of the lack of offers so far.
They want me to drop it.
But I can't. So we agreed to part ways.
Gina, I'm really sorry. None of that should matter.
Not once I've been to see Lenny Murdoch and get this sorted out.
I'm here about what we discussed earlier.
About me buying out your share of the Oyster.
So...I won't keep you.
I've got the money.
Cash, just like you said.
It's all there. Three bundles of ten.
Right, so I'll just get out your hair.
I think I'll hold onto them for a wee bit.
See, I've been giving it a bit of thought,
and I'm more attached to the place than I realised.
What?! What are you saying?
Me and the Oyster, we're no ready to part company yet.
But you agreed! Changed my mind. Deal's off.
If you knew what this means to me - to my dad.
If you don't, I won't be able to sell,
and then I'll never be able to pay him back!
And that's my problem how? PHONE RINGS
It's my family!
And this is business. Don't confuse the two.
Now, if you don't mind...
Oh, my God, Gina. This is a train wreck. I knew I shouldn't have told you.
Well, I knew something was up when I saw you coming out the cab office.
And the estate agent as well? How could you have let this happen?!
I just thought, you know, once I'd
sorted stuff out with Lenny Murdoch...
Oh, you should've known better than to trust him. The man's a weasel.
This is a disaster.
It's not me you should be apologising to.
Do you know what it's going to be like,
watching Dad struggling and worrying?
Him and Liz are sitting over there
with no heating right now, no hot water!
You have to find a way to fix this.
Hi, Richard, it's Zinnie.
Look, I know you said you didn't want to see me again, but...
Please, I just want to speak to you, ask you a few questions.
So could you just call me back? Please?
You better not screen your calls like that with me. Jamie!
How are we, bro? Good to see you. Likewise.
Don't tell me.
Another jilted ex who can't live without you?
Something like that. You find the place all right?
Yeah, no bother. So, uh, what's the deal?
You dragging me here to go check out some cafe.
What did you think of it?
Yeah, it's nice, a bit small.
Some TALENT in there, though.
As an investment. I'm thinking of putting in an offer.
Yeah, it's not your usual style, but it's good.
So what's the hold-up?
Not like you to hang around once you're interested in something.
That's just it, there's a problem.
Do you remember Lenny Murdoch?
He's got a share in the place.
In fact, he's got his claws into a few businesses round here.
He seems to haunt this street like the smell of drains.
You going to tell me what that's about?
Just some daft wee lassie.
Got the wrong idea that we're something we're not.
Now she won't stop calling.
Why don't you let me, your little brother, the player,
take you out and help you meet some normal girls?
I've neither the time nor the inclination to get involved in
another relationship right now.
Alex, come on. It's time to move on.
It's been nearly two years since you separated.
I'm not going to discuss this. OK, I'm just saying. Leave it!
Look, I need to go.
Why don't you get yourself a drink since you're here?
I just got here. Can you not stay for one?
No, sorry. I've got to take care of something.
See you later, though.
Pippa, it's Alex.
Yeah, listen, you've got a problem with one of your girls.
Yeah, that's the one.
Oh, Gina! I must have dozed off.
How long have you been sitting there? Not for long.
You cannae go through a whole winter like this. You or Liz.
Listen, pet, I've been through a lot tougher times than this.
63, now, that WAS a winter.
And let me tell you, there was no central heating back then.
Aye, and you were a young man.
Aye...I was poor too.
Not least because I didn't have you, Gina.
The main thing is, I've got my family.
And no man is poor if he has that.
Dad, there's something I want you to have.
There's ten grand there. Wha...?
You could use it for the boiler, for anything you need.
But... Wh-Where did you get this? The bank.
I talked them into a refinancing package.
I'll leave a note for Liz to explain.
So you make sure she sees it, and get that money deposited.
You're not going to have to worry about anything.
Aw, Gina, you're something else.
And always making sure you do the right thing by others.
I just hope you haven't taken any ends you cannae afford to pay back.
Och, of course not.
Miss Brodie. It's not a bad time, is it?
Look, I know Gareth's service isn't for a few days yet,
but I wanted to stop by and offer my condolences.
I figured you wouldn't be too happy
about seeing any of our lot there on the day.
There's not going to be a day.
I had to cancel it because there's no money to pay for it.
No-one cared enough to look out for him when he was alive.
No-one cares now he's dead either. Look, do you mind if I come in?
There's some things I think you should know. About Gareth.
It'll only take a minute.
So, have you done anything yet?
Have you arrested the person that killed him?
We're still pursuing our lines of inquiry.
Is that a joke?
You know exactly who killed him!
If it wasn't for you, then none of this would have happened.
Gareth was working for you, you should have protected him.
You just used him, like everyone else.
You're right. We should have protected him.
Gareth...put his neck on the line for us, and we let him down.
But he knew what he was getting into.
He knew the risks of informing, but he wanted to do it anyway.
Because he knew it was the only way out.
Look, I'm not going to lie to you.
Gareth was involved in some pretty nasty business, and it was him that chose that life.
But, to his credit, he was trying to build something away from that.
Away from people like Lenny Murdoch and Billy Kennedy.
And he was doing that for you, Miss Brodie. For you and your daughter.
Why tell me that now?
Because I think you should know.
Gareth had the chance to walk away, take witness protection.
But he didn't, because he knew that would mean leaving you behind,
maybe leaving you in danger.
Do you think that makes me feel better?
Look, I'm sorry, this was a mistake.
Again, I'm really...sorry for your loss. I'll see myself out.
All right, Gina?
You just missed Murray. He was in looking for you. Right.
Did he say what it was about? No, he didnae.
Is everything all right?
Yeah, darling. I've just been out for a walk.
I take it everything went well with Lenny, then?
Well, he was in earlier on and he dropped the books off. They're behind the counter.
It's funny, innit? I mean, I'm dead happy for you
and all that, but I just cannae imagine this place without you.
It's gonnae be pure weird.
You not heard of knocking?
Do you want to tell me what's going on?
You want to narrow that down?
These books, they're all wrong.
There's too much money going through them.
Maybe you've been shifting more muffins than you realised.
Do you think I'm daft?
There's something dodgy going on.
Or maybe you want me to show them to the police, see what they think?
And why would you do something stupid like that?
Because there's something not right here.
And I'm sure they'd be interested to know.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves here, eh?
I mean, you're still running the place.
Accounting mistakes - now that's your responsibility.
You know this has got nothing to do with me!
Well, I think our little agreement says otherwise.
I mean, you're still the proprietress.
You go running off to the cops, you're as good as reporting yourself.
What, and you think they're going to believe you over me?
I don't care what they believe, it's what they can prove.
But hey-ho, it's no skin off my nose.
It's your books, Gina.
I mean, I could argue that this is you trying to scam me.
Taking advantage of my reputation to cover yourself.
Then you're going to land yourself
with court appearances, legal fees...
Let's face it - you don't really need that hassle right now, eh?
No with your da and that.
So I tell you what.
Why don't you be a good girl, keep your mouth shut...
and there might be something in it for you?
How do you mean?
Well, you turn a blind eye to a few extra grand going through the tills,
and some of it might find its way back to you.
It's certainly going to help you pay off all those debts, eh?
I got the message. Dad wanted to see me?
I'm sorry, Gina. But when I saw Dad with the money, I had to call.
That's never what it was meant for.
Gina, why did you lie to me, pet?
You told me the money was from the bank!
I was going to tell you.
Was that before or after you'd told me you'd dropped the estate agent?
What, you think he wasn't going to find out? That money was meant to
help with the sale of the Oyster. It wasn't to be handed over to Dad.
This really is a new low, Gina.
I mean, what were you thinking?
Giving Murray's money away like that.
It wasn't yours to give!
I'm sorry, Dad, I...
I just didn't want you to worry any more.
I know you were trying to help me, but I mean,
robbing Peter to pay Paul?
Murray gave you that money in good faith.
I thought better of you.
I was going to figure something out!
Dad, I just wanted to make it right.
No matter what the cost to me?
Murray, please. The other 20,000, come on.
Murray, wait! Just let me explain.
Now, THAT I would like to hear. You know, Liz was right.
What the hell were you thinking?! I don't know. I wasn't.
When Murdoch wouldn't sell, I didn't know what to do.
So you just thought you'd start giving my money away
with no hope of paying it back?
You said six months. I thought I'd find a way.
How, Gina? You just going to magic ?10,000 out of thin air?
You know, the worst part of this is I...
I really thought this morning that...
..the two of us...
But now I know you were only interested in the money.
That's not true. I'd never lead you on like that.
Oh, come off it. That big show of making breakfast?
All the talk about the future?
You lied to me, Gina.
And in my book...
..that makes you as bad as Greg.
Well, I think we can say that bridge is officially burned.
You're loving this, aren't you? Of course I'm not!
I've got a lot at stake here too, you know.
Save it. What were you thinking, phoning Murray?
Couldn't you have came to me first? Let me speak to him?
And tell him what? What is going on in your head, Gina?
Look, what's done is done.
What I want to know is what we're going to do now.
Murdoch's made me an offer. Oh, no. No, Gina.
I don't even want to know what for. It's money, Eileen. And we need it.
You know as well as I do that any offer of money from that man comes with trouble attached.
So, what am I supposed to do? I don't know!
But getting in deeper with Lenny Murdoch
isn't going to solve your problems.
It's just going to give you new ones.
TENSE MUSIC PLAYS
I didn't think pimps made house calls.
I'm only going to say this once, Zinnie. Stop calling Richard.
I won't have you scaring away my clients.
And what if I don't want to? What are you going to do about it?
He can't treat me like this.
I only want to talk to him.
He can treat you like this because that's what he paid for.
An escort, not a girlfriend.
I'm not leaving here until you stop acting like a child.
I can wait here all day.
Wait for your family to come back and explain to them exactly what you've been up to.
You wouldn't. Why not?
I don't care what she thinks about me,
but you care what she thinks about you.
Right, OK. I won't call him any more, I promise. Phone.
What? Phone! I want to see you delete his number.
LEYLA: Love you, bye.
OK, there, it's done.
Is everything OK?
I don't know. Is it?
Good. Then I was just leaving.
Wow, she had quite the face on her.
What was all that about?
It was nothing. I don't want to talk about it.
RAIN DRUMS OFF WINDOW
Tell him to take the six.
If he doesn't, 6 becomes 12 becomes 2 years
if he talks to the judge like that again.
Yeah. Listen, I'll call you back.
If it isn't the pearl of the Oyster.
What are you doing here? I'm looking for Lenny Murdoch.
Maybe I can help? I'm a business associate of his.
I can pass on a message if you like.
If you see him, tell him his offer...
I'm not interested. I've already made some bad decisions today
and I'm not about to make another.
Wait, Gina. Maybe I can help with that too.
Lenny's already filled me in on your problems.
The good news is that I'm here to offer some advice.
For free, of course.
What's this, a lawyer offering free advice?
Must be snowing in hell. Lenny.
What's going on? And who's he? Him?
He just hangs about like a bad smell, telling people what to do.
Of course, he's usually right.
OK, Gina, let me explain to you what is going on here.
I know what's going on! Money laundering.
Your words, Gina, not mine. I prefer to call it...
Why me? Could you not find some other way?
Gina...the fact you even ask,
it's, uh, sweet.
Take a man like Lenny here.
He's a little rough around the edges, draws attention to himself.
He makes an impression.
And that's the last thing you want when you're involved in something...
not entirely above board.
But you, Gina...
..you hardly make an impression at all.
You are entirely uninteresting. And that's why you're perfect for us.
Why no-one would even bother giving you a second look.
I don't have to listen to this.
Ah, but then maybe you should.
For the sake of your poor father if no-one else.
What was it, Lenny? Dementia? Aye. That's right.
A time bomb, really. You never know when that can progress.
I'm sure that extra money could go a long way
to putting your mind at ease.
Just think of it as helping Lenny to turn his dirty,
illegitimate money into nice, clean, taxable money.
In a way, you'd be doing society a favour.
Oh, yeah. I wonder if the police would see it that way.
I must say, I think it'd be a shame for you to waste this opportunity.
And I know Lenny here will be disappointed.
God knows how he'll react.
Don't make me regret this.
Cos it's hardly buttons.
There's 12 grand there.
I want you to put it through your till over a month.
I'm not your... Lenny's a very busy man, Gina.
But I can assure you, we're both of one mind on this.
So if you don't mind...
You better be right about this.
Relax, she'll do as she's told.
What else is she going to do with it?
I don't know. I hear Rio's nice this time of year.
On 12 grand? Maybe a month or two tops, but then what?
She'll realise she can't hide.
Besides... she's just not interesting enough.
You watch, she'll fall into line.
She has no choice.
GINA: 'This is a train wreck, train wreck...'
LIZ: 'I mean, what were you thinking, thinking, thinking...
MURRAY: 'You lied to me, Gina... lied to me, Gina...lied to me...
'In my book, that makes you as bad as Greg...bad as Greg...
MALCOLM: 'I thought better of you.'
Gina, you OK? I've been looking for you.
What's the matter?
I dropped by the Oyster because you never called...
I take it things didn't go too well with Lenny?
He's using you, isn't he? As a front.
What can I do?
I mean, he won't let go.
I don't know, Gina. I don't know.
But I do know that he'll keep hold for as long as you're useful to him.
I come across people like this all the time - users. they're parasites.
All you can do is make sure you and yours are safe from them.
Is that what you do?
I do what I can.
Gina, you've seen behind the curtain.
You can't un-see it.
Look, I am still interested in the place.
If you find a way to make things change...

..let's see how much use I'm going to be to him.
KNOCK ON WINDOW
KNOCK ON WINDOW
I said, we're closed!
Hiya, Will. Everything all right?
Hi, Gina, sorry to bother you. Do you mind if I come in? No.
This better no' take long.
No, shouldn't take too long.
I realise Cash In The Attic is on soon.
I know that's a big favourite of yours(!)
So? So I was in the area, thought I'd pay you a visit.
DC Cooper is over at the Oyster having a chat with Gina Hamilton.
I don't take much to do with the place.
Right, so there'll be no problem with you handing over
any paperwork relating to it.
It's just your co-owner's finances
have come under a little bit of scrutiny.
Seems an unusually large amount was deposited in her bank
yesterday afternoon. Really?
Hmm. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about,
we just need to look over the accounts,
make sure there's no...
irregularities at the business end.
So it was you that deposited it, wasn't it? Yeah. That's right. So you must know the money's source.
Where did the money come from?
I'm sorry, Will, I...
just don't know what to tell you.
Gina, I don't think you understand.
I'm not accusing you of anything,
but you are required by law to tell me where the money came from.
Sorry, I just don't know what to say.
Well, perhaps we should discuss it down at the station, then?
Gina, what you're telling me doesn't make any sense.
So I'm going to ask you again.
Where did the money come from?
I told you, I found it. HE SIGHS
It came through the letter box.
I thought it might be from Greg.
You know, a guilty conscience, or something.
We have the Oyster's accounts, OK?
So you're not telling me that if we go through them, the numbers will add up?
No, they won't, because I've changed them.
I've been cooking them, the books.
Feeding extra money through.
Listen to what you're saying.
What you're admitting to is money laundering,
but then using money you're telling me
was yours in the first place - it doesn't make any sense!
Yeah, I know.
When I found the money, I didn't want questions being asked.
So I just put it through the till.
I needed it for my dad.
But then I got nervous about money lying around.
So I just banked it all in one go.
It's no secret that Murdoch has a stake in your business.
Are you covering for him? Is he threatening you in any way?
No, no, he isn't. I just made a mistake, is all.
So, I've said everything I need to, so if you're going to charge me or...
..whatever, then just hurry up and do it, eh?
You know, I cannae believe that stupid cow dumped it all at once. I mean, what was she thinking?!
The cops are gonnae be all over me now.
She's probably down there spilling her guts right now.
Actually, I'm not so sure.
Gina knew what would happen if she banked that money all in one go.
So? So she won't talk because she's already got what she wants.
Look at it from Gina's angle.
She knew you needed her to be cleaner than clean.
And by dumping that money she's just put herself
firmly on the police's radar.
The Oyster's useless to you now, you might as well let that go.
She's got what she wanted,
and she's managed to keep a clean slate with you.
I'm impressed. I never thought Aunt Bessie had it in her.
Nah. She's not clever enough. Or brave.
We'll see if I'm wrong.
But either way, you're going to have to let that one go.
There are some other avenues I'm pursuing anyway
with regards your little laundering problem.
But they'll require you to free up some capital.
All right, just give us it.
You need to sell something, and there's one prime candidate...
It's an underachiever, the turnover's too low.
One wee problem there.
I've got a partner. Who, Gabriel Brodie?
He owns what, 10%?
I should think he'll have very little say in the matter.
It's the man's livelihood.
It's business, Lenny.
It's the profit motive, and it's no different
to the call you made on Gina. Just try to keep that in mind.
And what if I say no?
These are my businesses we're talking about here.
You think I don't know other ways to clean cash?
Well, it's not just a question of that any more.
Our Spanish friends are willing to advance another shipment
to help you pay off your debt quicker.
But...they're going to need money for the carriage up front.
So, unless you've any better ideas?
Good. Then that's settled.
Do what you need to do with Brodie,
and then we can proceed with the sale. I'll be in touch.
You wanted to see me?
Aye, aye. We need to chat.
A chat, really?
If we're just exchanging pleasantries, I'd rather skip it.
Whoa! Who peed in your porridge? I've no' even said anything yet.
I'll tell you what. I spent most of yesterday comforting my niece
because her boyfriend's gonnae get buried
in a pauper's grave, that's what.
And? What's that got to do with me?
Come on, Lenny.
Gareth worked for you, and I know what that means.
You should have stepped up, taken care of it.
The boy deserved better. Yeah, well, I'm sorry,
my employee care disnae stretch to funeral cover.
Hey, you were hardly singing his praises when he was alive.
All right, I admit it. I wasn't his biggest fan.
But he was loyal to you, I'll give him that much.
You'd think you would've shown him the same respect.
Hey, wait. There's still something needs to be said here.
Me and you. This place.
We're going to have to part ways.
What? I'm putting it up for sale,
thought I'd give you the heads-up. In case you want to put in an offer.
You're kidding me on, right?
You seriously think I can afford to put an offer in
when I couldn't even help Nicole with Gareth's funeral?
That's why I'm telling you now. Give you a chance to find the cash.
I'll give you an advance on your share. Two grand.
Five. Come on. I'm already being generous here.
And I'm only trying to put right what you should have
done in the first place. Like helping out Nicole?
All right. Five grand. This place?
You've got seven days.
Well, she's sticking to her story, sir,
even if it doesn't make any sense.
You think he's got her scared?
That's just it, Gina, she's sticking to her guns throughout.
You said yourself that Lenny's face dropped when you told him
we'd brought her in, so... I don't know.
If she's sticking to her story, there's nothing else we can do.
Just give her a caution. But warn her.
We'll be keeping a very close eye on her accounts from now on, OK? Sir.
I'll take it from the fact that I've
no' had the police at my door again that you've done the right thing?
Kept your mouth shut.
I kept you out of it, if that's what you mean.
You know, I'm going to take it at face value that what you've done the day was just stupidity.
Because if I ever find out you were playing me...
Oh, and by the way, I've changed my mind.
The papers are all arranged, the place is all yours again.
If you ever sell the dump, you can give me my share then.
Plus the 12 grand you owe.
Hello, Mr McAllister? It's Gina.
I'm ready to do business with you.
Congratulations, Gina, you did it.
I have to say, I'm glad.
I think myself and the Oyster are going to be very happy together.
And are you sure I can't persuade you to stay on as manageress?
Thanks, Alex, but no.
Besides, you couldn't find a better pair of hands than Stella.
She'll do you proud. I'll keep that in mind.
Seriously, though, I'm impressed.
Taking the blame to get Lenny to back off. It's a bold move.
I just hope it doesn't come at too great a cost to yourself.
Ach, I'll be all right.
Once I get over the embarrassment of being lifted by the police.
That's not exactly what I meant.
I trust you're not forgetting that was Lenny Murdoch you took on today?
He's not one to forgive these things lightly.
No, he isn't, is he?
You know, it's just like you say, Alex, these folk...
..they go about as if they're decent and normal, but they're not.
This is my home.
And it's been taken over by rats.
They're behind the walls.
You want to get rid of them, but you can't.
Try and forget them, but they're still there.
I don't know. What do you do?
You move out.
And let them win.
I'm not being forced out.
I want to go. I choose not to live with the rats.
What about your family?
They're not aware of them.
And if I stay, they might be.
So, no, I don't want to risk that.
You're very brave.
It was you, wasn't it? What?
I just got a phone call from the funeral director's.
The account's been paid off, so the service can go ahead.
That's great news. I'm happy for you.
It was you. But how? Ah, you know.
Moved some cash, cut a few deals.
The important thing is, it's happening. Come here.
Just try not to upset him any more.
You've put everyone through quite enough already.
Dad, all right if I sit down?
HE MUTTERS UNCERTAINLY
You're going to have to help me out here, pet,
I just don't know what's been going on.
First that business with Murray, now this, and...what's happened today?
It's not like you.
Ach, Dad, I don't know what to tell you.
There's a lot of things I regret about today,
a lot of things I'd like to take back.
But, Dad, the main thing is, you're going to get your money back.
All of it. I've sold the Oyster.
Obviously I don't know what to think. I'm obviously glad, but...
I take no pleasure in it.
I mean, I know what that place meant to you, Gina.
I just hope things can get back to normal now.
Listen, I just want to say...
Congratulations. You did it.
Och, Eileen... No, I mean it, Gina.
I don't know how you did it, but you did.
And I promise I'll let it go now.
I thought you could use this after the day you've had.
And now that we've got an excuse to celebrate.
And by way of being an apology.
Apology for what?
Just... I've not made things easy for you recently.
Och, don't worry about it. No, Gina...
I've got a big mouth and I get carried away.
I was just so worried about Dad.
But I do realise what you've been going through.
What that man put you through.
Oh, you've been so strong, Gina.
I don't know how I would've coped if it was me.
I'm just so happy this weight has been lifted
and we can just get on with our lives. Yeah.
Now Dad'll have his care and he'll have us to support him.
That's what matters.
What? What is it?
Nothing. Right, come on, drink up.
Gina, do you want some breakfast?
Did we really drink a bottle of wine each?
SOMBRE MUSIC PLAYS
You know the deal - cash today or we go with another buyer.
You know how much work I've put into that place. Business is business.
This is one of the big questions in life answered.
I know what I'm going to die of.
I cannae afford to just lose my job like that.
You know, if you're that desperate Gabriel, I could throw
a bit of driving work your way, with the cabs.
Your first driving job. Chauffeur my wife about.
No, thanks. I'm afraid you don't get to say no.
