You cannae just help yourself.
It's not as if I was stealing anything.
Technically it is, aye. I'm gonnae have to give you your notice.
I made a mistake! I know that, And I'm sorry, I'll no dae it again.
I just want a chance to provide for my family like any mother would.
This whole thing could be a way to get back at you.
-She could've set out to trap me?
I took out one of they quick loans...
and then I took out another one.
Now they're both after me and I cannae pay them back.
SONG: "Who Will Sing Me Lullabies" by Kate Rusby
# Lay me down gently
# Lay me down low
# I fear I am broken
# And won't mend, I know
# There's one thing I ask when the stars light the skies
# Who now will sing me lullabies?
# Oh, who now will sing me lullabies?
# In this big world I'm lonely
# For I am but small
# Oh, angels in heaven
# Don't you care for me at all?
# You've heard my heart breaking
# For it rung through the skies
# So why won't you sing me lullabies?
# Oh, why won't you sing me lullabies?
# Oh, lullabies... #

-What is this?
This is harassment!
How can you come round here this time in the morning?
I've got weans in there. How can you justify charging me that?
-I'm only doing my job.
-I don't care if you're just doing your job or not.
Get off my veranda before I fling you off!
And don't come back round here! I mean it!
-Bubba. What you doing up?
-I heard the door. Who was it?
-Eh, nothing, just a mix up.
It was a guy from the lecky company.
I told him we're on a card now.
That wake you up as well, aye?
Well, not exactly. I was already up.
I'm going to fetch you some breakfast, all right?
Well, thank you for letting us know.
That was the electrician.
He says the whole place might need re-wiring.
-That could take weeks.
-Weeks? That's a bit much.
Eileen can't be expected to put us up for that long.
Well, if that's the way it's got to be...
Well, it's very good of you, dear.
But perhaps you could let us help you out around the house a bit more.
Aye, and you can start by letting us take care of dinner tonight.
Yes, of course I could. But I've to be up town this afternoon,
I don't know if I'd have time to pick anything up.
Well, I can do that. I'll pop into the Mini Market later.
How does steak sound?
Are you sure you're up to it?
You can write me out a list, it's only a wee bit of shopping.
I'll get it later.
-Oh, God! Creeping up on me like that!
Nearly gave me a heart attack!
I wasn't creeping up on you. Are you all right?
I'm fine. Right, there's toast for Bob. Bubba!
Cheers, Ma. Nice one.
Oh, and by the way, never mind my lunch today.
You should get back to your kip. Try and catch up.
-See you later.
-Are you no' sleeping again?
-I'm fine! What are you pair like?
You're worse than some mother hens.
Are you wanting this toast?
No, I'm OK. I'll pick something up later.
Eileen's wanting me in early, she's got a big meeting in town.
Right, so are you going to tell me what this letter is?
"Retail loss prevention." What is this?
It's from some debt collection agency from the Mini Market.
-About they meals I took.
-What about them?
They're wanting me to pay 186 quid.
To recover their losses.
Recover their losses?
-But that stuff was halfway in the bin when you took them.
No, this isn't right.
And it's not fair they're just telling you about it the now.
The guy says I would have been sent a letter.
But I was getting that many, Kelly.
I knew I couldn't pay it.
Then after a while I just stopped opening them.
Ma, how bad are things?
Do you even know?
Ma, gonnae talk to me? I'm only trying to help you here.
Well, you cannae help me, all right?
Look, I'll figure something out, OK?
I don't need you two giving me grief about it.
Erm, yes. I'm calling about the advertisement in the paper.
For the Customer Sales Representative...?
Aye. Well, I've, erm...
I'm dead good with the public and I've got loads of experience...
No' exactly with sales, erm...
But I've worked in a pub before.
I suppose that stuff sells itself but, doesn't it?
Thing is, me and my last boss,
erm, employer didn't exactly see eye to eye so...
Aye. I understand that, aye.
Aye, of course.
Aye, right, suit yourself.
Aye, hello. I'm calling about the advertisement in the paper
for a part-time dog walker... Uh-huh.
Have I got experience working with animals?
Have you met my family? I'm only joking...
Are you still there?
With the success...
-I don't get it. What is it?
-It's a scandal, that's what it is.
Right, if you say so, but I still don't get what it is.
It's the Mini Market. They're having some kind of big PR do out there.
Investing in Communities, they're calling it.
And look who is supporting it...
-Right, well, she never told me about it.
-I bet she didn't.
Happy to take her 30 pieces of silver and keep quiet about it.
-Ma, calm down, would you?
-After the way that lot have treated me?
She shouldn't be putting her name on that.
She's helping them rub my nose in it.
-Right, so what do you want me to do about it?
-Speak to her.
Tell her what they're really like.
Great. So you can get me fired as well as Bob?
Ma, sorry. I didn't mean that.
No, it's fine, Kelly, it's fine. I know I've made mistakes.
But see that lot out there? They have branded me a thief.
And now I can't get a job, and I can't get a reference.
And all I want to do is take care of my family.
Hello, Councillor Donachie's office, how can I help you?
Sorry to drop by unannounced. I was in the neighbourhood.
Thought I'd pop in.
Is there any news?
There's no news per se. I just...
-I just wanted to see how you're doing?
We're OK, I guess.
I know how difficult it can be, you know, all the waiting.
What about your lawyer? Have you heard from them?
Eh, yes, I have.
Likely she'll be wanting to collect pre-trial statements.
Just witness accounts from Nicole, from yourself, Leyla.
-Yeah, it's nothing to worry about.
Just be as frank and open as you can, and I'm sure you'll be fine.
Well, look, if there's anything else, just let me know.
I'll leave you to it.
I just wanted to ask...
How important are these witness statements?
Well, in cases such as this, we need to corroborate your story.
So they're very important.
Why do you ask?
I don't know how much help Leyla's going to be.
If she's up to it.
It can be difficult for family members too.
Watching a loved one go back over the trauma
of something that's happened.
Some of the stuff she's said... I don't think she even believes me.
And if I can't convince her, how am I going to convince a jury?
It's bad luck, to put shoes on the table.
I thought that was hats.
Hats on beds, shoes on tables. I think.
Hats, shoes...doesn't bother me.
I think you make your own luck in life. Look at them.
I can see your face in them.
What's the occasion?
The occasion? What do you think?
The trial's a week away, Jamie.
Yeah, and what am I supposed to do? You don't want me at the bar.
All I'm doing is sitting around here getting myself worked up
about what to say.
Yeah, well, you're not going to be saying anything.
Actually, I've been thinking about that...
I know the lawyer said I shouldn't take the stand,
but, I mean, won't the jury think it's weird
I'm not standing up for myself?
I know that makes sense in your head.
But Galbraith knows what she's doing.
When Malick recommended her, he said, and I quote,
"If Galbraith advises you to step off a cliff,
"you better take a running jump."
Yeah, but it's my decision here. It's my life.
And if you don't want to lose six to ten years of it,
you'll listen to someone who knows what they're talking about.
What do you think?
I got this for the trial. I got it yesterday.
Is it not maybe a bit...tight?
No, it's fine.
It looks good on you. Stylish.
That's what I mean. It's not a fashion show.
It's a suit. What else is she supposed wear?
It's not Zinnie's fault she's got a nice figure.
Anyway, they're hardly expecting you to turn up wearing a bin bag,
-I dunno. I...
I don't want anyone prejudging me.
It might be a bit late for that.
I think she knows that everyone's going to be judging her.
I don't think she needs to hear it from you as well.
So, you missed a good photo opportunity today.
I think we can safely describe it as a huge success.
Bodes well for the launch on Friday.
Yeah, sorry I missed it.
I would much rather have been here than stuck with the old boy network.
Well, thanks for all your help, and sorry I can't stay.
That's OK, we'll see you tomorrow anyway.
And then we can go through the arrangements for the launch.
-Thanks for that. And I'll get this.
Are you not at the office?
I'm allowed to take a break, aren't I?
Anyway, I was wanting to speak to you about this.
It's great, isn't it?
Great? Aye, well, it's a good publicity stunt, if you ask me.
I just want to know what it's all about.
Well, the Mini Market chain are looking to reach out
into their local communities.
Participate in their projects.
It's going to be a real boost to the area.
Well, I'm not sure everybody'll agree with that.
My mum came by earlier.
She saw this. She's not happy about it.
Especially when she saw you were attached.
Well, I can't see how it's gonnae affect Scarlett.
It's not how it affects her, it's about the company
and the way they've already treated her.
Eileen, have you got any idea what kind of people you're
-getting into bed with here?
-Whoa, just a wee minute.
First of all, I'm not "getting into bed" with anybody.
And second, while I appreciate
that Scarlett may not be their number one fan,
she did get fired for stealing.
Eileen, those meals that she took were already going in the bin.
What, they were out of date?
Aye. They have sent debt collectors to her door.
-They're wanting nearly 200 quid.
For food that's worth 40, even if it was out of date.
OK, that does seem pretty unfair.
Unfair? It's plain extortion.
Look, I'm sorry. I hadn't realised any of this.
But these companies have got rules.
And anyway, they're talking about new investments in the areas.
I can't just jeopardise that because of Scarlett.
I just don't think you should be supporting a business
that treats people like that.
It's too late now. My hands are tied.
Oh, hello. You all right?
How was school?
Listen, you want to run ahead, darlin'?
I'll have a quick chat with your mum.
-What is it?
-Everything all right? You're looking awful tired.
I'm fine. What do you want to talk about?
-It's just Madonna, at the school... she's been fighting.
Aye, with some of the other girls. They said that she started it.
-And what did she say?
-Well, I've not spoke to her about it yet,
but it's not like her.
I thought we could maybe set up a meeting, have it out with them.
Aye, Jimmy, it's just I've got a lot on my plate the now.
A lot on your plate?
Scarlett, I'm not being funny but you've no' been working for weeks.
This is Madonna we're talking about. Surely you've got time for her?
I do, I've just got better things to worry about.
Better than some stupid wee lassies telling tales.
Scarlett, I know you've had your stresses, but she needs you.
Aye, milk, butter, eggs, potatoes...
Ach, no bother.
Right, that's just about me away now, dear.
Have you got everything you need?
-Aye, aye, I'm fine.
-Aye, there you are.
Aw, Liz, I'm way ahead of you. Now, will you just get on?
My Malcolm, man of the house.
I'm very proud of you, you know.
Honestly, Liz. It's just a wee bit of shopping.
You know, sometimes I wonder if you're not the one
that's going doolally instead of me.
CAR HORN BLARES
Malcolm! You OK?
Are you OK?
Eh, aye, aye.
Just for a minute there I forgot where I was going.
You want to be careful, Malcolm.
There are some inconsiderate drivers on the road these days.
Aye. Aye, thanks, Raymond.
Here, Malcolm, do you know where you're going?
Eh, aye, oh, shopping!
Aye, Liz has asked me to go and get the messages in.
I've got a list here...
Right, well, in that case it's that way. And be careful.
Thanks, Raymond. You're a true gentleman.
Something the matter, son?
It's crucial that I do the talking, OK?
Ms Galbraith. I didn't realise we were seeing you.
You weren't. But your brother here called me round for this...
So are you going to tell me what this is about?
I just figured that if I can't get you to listen to reason...
I'll leave you to it.
-If this is about the stand...
-It is. And you're not.
As a Queen's Counsel, with over 15 years at the bar,
I strongly advise you do not take the stand next week.
But why? I'm innocent. The jury needs to hear that from me.
I can assure you they absolutely do not.
Look, the prosecution's case is built on three key elements.
First, that sex did in fact take place - you've both admitted that.
Second, that there was a lack of consent,
and third, that there was some degree of malicious intent on your part.
That you forced her.
Now, the bruising on her wrist might be viewed as some
corroboration of that but, really, it's weak.
Ultimately, this case will be decided on the credibility
of Miss Hassoun as a witness.
Fine. Then let me go up there.
Tell them what a manipulative, scheming whore she really is.
And that is exactly why I don't want you on the stand...
Look, Miss Hassoun's credibility won't be difficult to pick apart.
Not given her past.
But as soon as you get up there,
the focus then becomes about your credibility too.
It becomes a straight fight between the two of you,
and in the end it may simply come down to who the jury likes more.
And, hard as this may be to believe, Mr McAllister,
not everyone finds your charms irresistible.
So I'm supposed to just sit there and take it
while she says what she likes about me?
You're supposed to let me defend you.
Because let me assure you...
Once I am through with Miss Hassoun,
it won't just be the jury who don't believe her...
I will have her doubting herself.
Ma, I'm sorry, I...?
The school says she's been fighting with the all the other wee lassies.
It's all my fault.
Your fault? I don't see why.
-Have you tried talking to her?
-What kind of example am I to her?
Ma, you shouldn't give yourself a hard time.
I mean, we all make mistakes.
I've let things get into such a mess.
I've got to stop thinking about myself
and I've got to start doing right by everybody else.
If things are really that bad, then I think that you should...
I think you should look into bankruptcy.
Do you not think it's bad enough the way folk look at me now,
without giving them another label to stick on me?
I know it's not ideal, but it's a way to get back in control.
And, you know, sometimes it's all right to admit when you're beaten.
Mum... You should speak to Madonna.
Nip this in the bud before it gets any worse.
What're you doing, darling? Is it for school?
-It's a project.
-Oh, aye. What's it on?
Mary Barbour. They're putting up a statue of her.
Oh, I see. Can I have a wee look?
"Mary Barbour was an ordinary working woman
"who stood up for the rights of her community
"and fought the bailiffs,
"becoming Glasgow's first female councillor."
She sounds amazing, doesn't she?
Nothing. You finish up there and I'll go make your tea.
No... No, you have made that perfectly clear,
though I fail to understand what the problem is when it was
clearly a genuine mistake.
Oh, well. Thanks for nothing.
Liz, what's going on? What's all this?
I dropped in at our flat earlier on to let the electrician in,
and found these sitting there.
And then, by the time I got back here,
there was already another couple of bags waiting.
I don't understand.
Well, it seems your father has gone shopping twice and forgotten.
I suppose we should be grateful that he made it back to the right flat
the second time.
-I like the way you both assume it was my fault.
I still say they were playing games here.
Have you spoken to the people at the shop?
I went down there and then I spoke to the customer service line,
and they said that they didn't give refunds
unless it was damaged or faulty goods.
But that was £30 worth of shopping.
Do they think we've got money to burn?
Well, it's not the end of the world. We can freeze the extra.
It's the principle of the thing.
I mean, whatever happened to the world when you can't make an honest
mistake without being punished for it?
Well, it's just the way these companies work.
Well, it makes me sick.
Everyone taking advantage to squeeze out a few extra quid.
Whatever happened to common decency?
When people looked out for each other when things went wrong?
Oh, forget it.
Obviously I'm just not cut out for the way the world works nowadays.
I knew I should have done it myself.
I can't bear to see your father upset like this.
-Maybe there's something I can do, Liz.
MUSIC PLAYS FROM TV
Come and get your breakfast. We need to get ready and go to school.
Oh, look at you all ready to go, Cal, well done. Where's Madonna?
-Right, sit down.
Madonna, did you not hear me telling you to get ready?
Look, your schoolbag's not even packed yet.
-What's all that about?
-I don't want to go.
I thought you liked school.
-Why not, darling?
-Everybody picks on me.
Thanks for doing this at such short notice, Jimmy.
Too right it is. They're late as it is.
Did you, eh, speak to the school about...you know?
Madonna, why don't you and Cal just go in the back of the car there?
-Well? Did you?
-No. I didn't.
-Scarlett, we spoke about this.
-The reason I didn't talk to the school,
is because I talked to Madonna. She admitted it. It's true.
-She said some of the other lassies were picking on her.
You know, about her clothes, and about her not having the right toys.
So she just hit out at them.
-I don't believe this.
-I know. It's my fault, Jimmy.
I'm a bad example to her.
I've not been able to provide. That's why this is all happening.
Look, if you were struggling, why did you not come to me?
I know, Jimmy. We're way past that now.
This is about more than just money.
This is about me doing the right thing.
Being a good role model.
I'm her mother, she's supposed to look up to me.
I never had that when I was growing up.
Look, I'm gonnae sort this out.
But I just need to do it my own way.
What are you doing?
She must have hidden it away again. I've looked everywhere.
Where's that tin she keeps?
What are you talking about?
Ah... Your mother! She's been into my pay again.
-I'm down 60 quid.
Do you mean Liz?
Ah... Liz. That's what I meant, aye, aye.
She must have tucked it away in that jar she keeps.
Dad, you do realise this isn't your...
-Right, wait. £60?
Two lots of 30?
I don't need a maths lesson, I know what 60 quid is.
Dad, are you forgetting about the shopping?
That's what I'm trying to do.
She'll give me dog's abuse if I don't get it in.
What? What's the matter with you?
Dad, why don't you and me sit down
and I'll help you figure out what happened to the money.
I don't want to sit down, I want my money back.
And until then,
you can stop treating me like some kind of imbecile!
Oh, no! Where is it? It must be here somewhere!
But that's terrible. And Liz told them about the dementia?
-Do you see now, Eileen,
about the kind of swine that they are?
Well, it certainly made me think twice
about who I'm getting involved with.
And then there's the way they treated you.
Kelly Marie told me about the debt collectors
and the out-of-date meals. Scarlett, I had no idea.
Aye, well, I didn't want it shouted from the rooftops, did I?
It's bad enough getting called a thief.
Well, as I say, it got me thinking...
So I spoke to a friend on the Enquirer.
He's running a story on the company, and from what he tells me
you're not the only person they've treated this way.
It seems it suits them to have a high turnover of staff.
Suits them? But why?
Don't they want good workers? Loyal workers?
Loyal workers means pension schemes, holiday pay...
It's the same with these zero-hour contracts they've been using.
It's all a way for them to avoid their obligations.
But there have been people taking them to court on this
and winning settlements.
What are you suggesting?
I've got a meeting later with one of the regional managers,
I think you might know her. Barbara Rooney?
Oh, aye, I know her.
Well, if you like, you can come along,
and you can put your side of the story to her.
Maybe even try and get your job back.
I'd have more chance nailing jelly to a tree.
Well, I wouldn't be so sure.
They have got a lot at stake with this big launch coming up.
And they're not going to want anything negative coming out.
Why are you doing this?
I mean, Kelly Marie said you weren't interested yesterday.
Let's just say I've had a change of heart.
I've realised it's part of my job.
-Leyla, this is Ms Soren.
-Don't be nervous, Mrs Brodie. I won't bite.
-Oh, yes, of course.
So, as I say, there really is nothing to be nervous about.
Thanks. It's not nerves so much as...
I'm not really sure what's expected of me.
Well, as I explained on the phone,
all I need is your version of events as you saw them.
It's basically to determine your usefulness as a witness
-at the trial.
-You mean I might have to speak in court?
That's what we're here to find out.
I'm not sure...
I mean, I didn't really see that much.
What do you want me to say?
Only the truth, Mrs Brodie.
Now we arrive at the next time you encountered Miss Hassoun.
-Which would be...?
-Lunchtime. The next day.
The next day. So you never saw her returning home?
Well, I didn't wait up. We had a three-month-old in the house,
-I knew I'd have to be up early.
-But you weren't concerned?
Well, Miss Hassoun's shift finished at one
and yet she didn't return home until after three.
That didn't trouble you?
When she didn't come home I just assumed...
You know, that she'd stayed out drinking
or found someone else to go home with.
Sorry, I didn't mean it like that.
So, lunchtime the next day.
And how would you describe Miss Hassoun's demeanour
when you encountered her? Did she seem upset? Distressed?
Oh, look, I don't know. Upset...distressed, confused?
How am I supposed to know what was going on in her head?
Mrs Brodie, I'm not here to trip you up here.
This is simply about giving the jury a clear picture of events.
Look, I understand that. I'm just...
I'm not sure I've got that clear a picture of them myself.
I think we'll leave it there just now.
-Perhaps we can pick this up another time.
Hello, it's Scarlett Mullen to see Mrs Rooney.
I'm a wee bit early, but erm...
Councillor Donachie will be along shortly.
-Will I take a seat?
SHE PRESSES KEYS ON HER PHONE
Hello, Eileen? Where are you?
No, of course.
Aye. No, you do what you have to do.
No, no, I'm fine. See you later.
Councillor Donachie informed us she was bringing you along,
but er...no Councillor?
She's a wee bit late, but she's on her way.
Perhaps she's decided to stand you up?
No, I told you, she's just running a wee bit late.
I just spoke to her a minute ago.
Well, I suppose since you're here...
But, please, no repeats of last time.
I don't want to have to call security again.
Let's be honest, I was less than thrilled
when I heard that Eileen was bringing you along.
But the councillor has been a strong supporter
of our communities launch, so here you are...
Now, you have five minutes.
Well, I don't need to tell you about what happened.
Mrs Mullen, we have been over this.
You broke company guidelines that are absolutely clear.
I'm not here to talk about company guidelines,
I'm here to talk about what's right.
The company won't entertain rehiring an employee that stole from us.
I'm sorry if you've wasted your time.
Stole from you? Gonnae stop saying it like that?
Look, I've got a daughter. Madonna.
She's six and she's my life.
And she's already seen me slung out of a job, and labelled a thief.
Do you know how hard it is to try and get a job
when you're called a thief?
And what for?
For some poxy ready meals that were going in the bin anyway.
If you had to choose between company guidelines
and feeding your weans...
..what would you choose?
Scarlett, I am sorry.
But actions have to have consequences.
Surely you understand that?
I understand that. But what about the consequences for me?
I'm not here about the money.
I am here to say my piece.
Look, if you could just give me my job back, Mrs Rooney...
KNOCK ON THE DOOR
Eileen. Please, come in.
Caught in traffic?
No, actually. I had a family matter to sort out.
Something you and I are going to have a wee talk about.
Eileen, you can back me up.
It's not just your staff you treat like dirt,
it's your customers an' all.
Eileen, what's she talking about?
She's talking about my dad, Barbara. But we'll get to that.
First we're going to discuss Scarlett's job.
Then we're going to talk about some of your policies,
especially those relating to refunds and what happened to my father.
Then we're going to talk about your launch on Friday,
and whether you still expect the Council to stay involved
with a company who have the ethics of a bag of weasels.
And then we're going to leave you to think about
how a community-spirited company like yours should respond.
What did you want for dinner? I was thinking chicken.
Or we've got prawns?
How can you stand there and ask me that?
Standing there acting like everything's normal.
Like nothing's happened.
Look, Zinnie, I'm sorry if I didn't say everything I was supposed to.
-I just got nervous, OK?
You practically jumped down her throat
every time she asked you a question.
You were meant to be backing me up.
All right. Well, I'm sorry if I let you down.
What did you mean when you said you weren't clear on events?
-You said it earlier.
That you didn't have a clear picture of events.
-What did you mean?
-I didn't mean anything.
Well, you must have meant something. You said it, didn't you?
I think that it can be difficult sometimes to know
exactly what somebody is really thinking or feeling.
What they meant to do, what they didn't...
Look, sometimes things can get confused in people's heads.
No, not for me.
I know exactly what happened.
Look, I just think that since what you did...
That since then that maybe some of your ideas about sex
have become confused.
That the regrets you have over sleeping with a man for money,
Might have got confused with your regrets over sleeping with Jamie.
I don't believe this.
You know the one person I thought I could count on to help me
through this was you.
So what's the point in me even carrying on
if you won't believe me?
-'You've reached Detective Chief Inspector Craig Donald.
'I can't take your call right now but please leave a message.'
DCI Donald, it's Zinnie.
I'm not really sure why I'm calling.
I...guess I wanted to speak to you. Erm...
I hate leaving these things.
I wanted to say thank you for yesterday.
Today didn't go so well...
I'm not really sure I can count on her.
It's just making me wonder whether this whole thing is even worth it.
But then I think, why should it be so easy for them?
Why should they get to go on with their lives
when I have to live with this every day?
No. I know I'm doing the right thing now.
Jamie has to pay for what he did.
Right, here's your hot chocolate.
Now, wait till it cools down before you drink it.
So, what's with the get-up? An interview?
Well, not exactly. But I was seeing about a job.
See today, Jimmy,
I just thought I couldn't go on with folk looking down on me
like I'm some poor wee debt-ridden single mammy...
so I've done something about it. Not just for me,
-but for everybody I care about.
-Well, that's great.
But have you made any decision about work and the loans?
No, not really. But do you know what?
I'm gonnae be fine.
Cos I've got plenty of folk around that're gonnae help.
-DOOR BELL RINGS
-I'll get that.
There's somebody here to see you.
-I had a visitor.
Afternoon, Mrs Mullen.
Barbara came round to give me some news.
She wanted me just to pass it on to you,
but I felt it was important that you heard it from her.
Hello. You must be Madonna.
Your mummy's told me all about you.
Aye, well, what was it you want to say to me?
Well, first, I'd like to clear up what happened with Eileen's father.
The company has admitted its error,
and we will be issuing a full refund and an apology.
Aye, I should think so.
And also we've reconsidered our position
with regards your dismissal.
-What do you mean?
I felt that you raised a number of valid points at our meeting,
and I put them as such to management.
What you said made a lot of sense, Mrs Mullen.
And perhaps we were a little hasty in letting go such a valued
member of the community.
So what are you saying, like?
That we'd like to offer Scarlett her job back.
It would only be probationary, for the first three months,
but I'm sure it could lead to something more permanent.
Eh, well...you know what, I'll consider it.
Well, we'd be delighted if you did.
Now, I really ought to be going.
-What about the meals?
-Aye. The company's still charging me 200 quid for them.
Well, I'm sure we can look to clearing that debt.
Aye, but what about your policy?
We don't want this happening to anybody else, do we, Eileen?
No. We don't.
Your mummy's a very persuasive lady, isn't she?
Well, I can't promise anything, but I'll look into it.
Goodbye, Mrs Mullen. I'm sure we'll run into each other again.
Aye, right. Thanks.
I cannae believe it!
You all right, Kelly?
You look like somebody's just pulled out your batteries.
Come here, you!
Congratulations, Ma, I just heard. How did you manage to do it, though?
Making them change a decision like that?
I just went down there, and I told them the truth.
Ma, I'm so chuffed for you.
Hopefully this'll be the start of things to get back on track.
Listen, Kelly, I was thinking about what you said.
You know what, the job's going to help but it's not enough.
I need to take control.
And if that means declaring myself bankrupt...
..that's what I've got to do.
Ma, I know it's not an easy decision to make, but I'm glad.
Kel, listen, there's something I've got to do.
You all right, sweetheart?
There's something we need to talk about.
It's about they lassies at school.
Now, I know I told you just to ignore them, and you should,
but there's something else you need to do an' all.
If they ever say anything to you again, you come straight to me
because your mammy's always here for you.
SONG: "She" by Laura Mvula
# She walked towards you with her head down low
# She wondered if there's a way out of the blue
# Who's gonna take her home this time?
# She knew that this time wouldn't be the last time
# There she waits looking for a saviour
# Someone to save her from her dying self
# Always taking ten steps back and one step forward
# She's tired but she don't stop... #
Just remember you've got to look respectable, sympathetic.
-He needs to look innocent.
-He IS innocent.
In all likelihood,
they will somehow imply that you are or have been a prostitute.
It's just knowing that they've got my life in their hands.
Yours is in Galbraith's hands.
The accused, James McAllister, maintains a plea of not guilty.
