She never made us feel that way, I can assure you.
We're very fortunate.
Well, we might have been sitting right here when it came down.
That'll be the bathroom ceiling, kitchen light fitting, all gubbed.
What are we going to do with no electric?
It's all right, Dad, you can come and stay with me.
How long? A week at least.
You're giving me advice about women?
You, the sad sack divorcee holding a torch for his one true love,
while he's shagging escorts?
I am taking the stand tomorrow
and ruining my reputation to try to keep you out of jail.
Jeezo. Are you sure you've got enough in there?
It's not just a matter of a few clothes, you know?
It's just such an upheaval. It's going to be OK.
All ready to go, dear?
Go? Go where?
Home, Malcolm, home.
Right. One coat.
Listen, I'll just have a quick check round before we leave.
Right, sir, come on.
It's OK, if I find anything, I'll bring it round later.
No, no, you've got that meeting today.
Listen, it'll not take me a second.
All right. On you go.
I've loved having you. Honestly.
Right. Action stations.
I'll take your coat. Oh, aye.
Must be good to be back in your favourite chair, eh?
Why did they move the telly?
They didn't, it's always been there.
You might be thinking of Eileen's flat.
Aye, maybe, aye.
Right, I think this calls for a cup of tea
and maybe a wee slice of cake.
Cake for breakfast?
No, for a treat.
We had breakfast at Eileen's, didn't we?
We had porridge? With Stuart?
Oh, aye, I remember.
He fairly wolfed it down, eh?
He did. He's a growing boy.
Maybe we should go home,
so we're there when he gets home from the nursery...eh?
Malcolm...we ARE home.
Maybe I'll make that tea.
No, no, you've got your meeting in town.
I can spare five minutes.
Eileen, I think...
I think maybe your being here is maybe adding to the confusion.
I hope you don't my saying...
No, no. I understand.
Bye. Bye. I'll call you later.
Bye-bye then, Eileen, and thank you for everything.
Aye, thanks. My pleasure.
I won't be long.
Liz, where are you? I'm just making a cup of tea, dear.
I knocked it over putting on my coat.
You couldnae swing a cat in here.
No, I mean why the coat?
I want to go home, woman, can't you understand English?
No, this is our home.
You've lived here for 50 years.
We were only staying at Eileen's for a wee while.
Are you sure? Yes.
And here's me breaking your photo.
Uch, it's just a frame.
We can always get a new one.
Book Shaw for five and shuffle McElhone to eleven.
If we can do that without offending either party,
I'll get you tickets for the opening ceremony.
Catch you later.
Councillor Donachie, you're here, excellent. I'm a bit early.
That's good, it'll give us more time to chat.
It's Eileen, isn't it?
Is it OK if I call you Eileen?
Why shouldn't it be? Smashing.
I'm Frank, just through here.
Thanks for seeing me at short notice.
My pleasure, I was intrigued.
Uh-huh. Should I be worried?
It's nothing we can't handle.
So, what do you think?
What am I looking at, exactly?
A major redevelopment project.
Phase one is homes, from affordable housing to luxury apartments.
Phase two - retail units, office space -
which means permanent jobs over and above the construction work
a project of this size creates.
Major regeneration for Shieldinch.
This is gonnae impact on every single person I represent.
Some people won't be happy, I get that -
but I want the vast majority behind this.
To see this as a positive thing.
Starting with you.
Tell me more.
Thanks so much for your time, Eileen. Are you kidding?
The whole thing is so exciting.
I'm glad you feel that way about it.
It's still gonnae be a tough sell to some people.
Listen, I'll clear my diary for tomorrow.
I'll come over and see you,
talk to the locals, have a wee walk about,
start laying some groundwork. I'd appreciate that. I really would.
OK, then. Right.
In the meantime, could you keep this to yourself?
Not a problem.
Aye, very nice.
Aye? It's Fairtrade.
I've got a sample case and everybody pure loves it.
I was thinking we could do like a really nice selection -
some people really know their coffee.
Is it not all the same, pretty much?
Well, naw - think about your bars.
You've got hunners of types of vodka, haven't you?
I'm selling the bars.
Well, it's no' just the coffee -
I was thinking we could get more sockets.
Like - power points.
People come in here with laptops and they sit all day, don't they?
I was thinking we could maybe do snacks to keep them going.
Maybe start some loyalty cards.
We could put a telly up so that people can watch the news and that.
Power points, snacks, and a telly - they're your big ideas?
Well, I'm sorry I wasted your time.
No, look, wait...
I'm sure these things would pay off -
only I'm not the guy to talk to.
I've had it with Glasgow.
It's not just the bars I want rid of, it's my flat...
And this place too.
I'm done, Stella.
Can I be honest with you?
Aye, course you can.
When I took the cafe on originally, I thought of it as somewhere
that my daughter might eventually take an interest in.
What about now?
Now she won't have an interest in anything to do with me.
I'm not going to ditch it overnight so your job's safe for now -
and the new people, they'll need a manager, right?
No' unless they want to run it themselves.
Why don't you talk to your bank? See about a loan?
Alex, you took a chance on me on, and I'm really grateful for that,
but it's gonnae take a lot more than a good word
for the banks to give me that kind of money.
What is taking so long?
You only came in for a drink of water.
I cannae find a glass.
I cannae find anything in this place.
I don't know why you're making me stay here.
Because this is our home, darling! It's our home.
why don't we have lunch,
and then we can go for a wee drink before the music session.
Would you like that?
Malcolm Hamilton, I hope this isn't you turning down a trip to the pub
for the first time in your life!
No, no, no. Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, we will have a drink. Yeah.
Good man. Aye.
Funny place for a meeting, Francis.
I just felt like stretching my legs.
You know, my father used to work down there.
When it was all shipyards.
So that's why you brought me here -
a history lesson?
Nah, just to illustrate a point.
Entire landscapes change.
Think about the Games, what's happening in the East End.
We're not talking about hundreds of years.
It happens faster.
And do you know why?
Because men like us make it happen.
So you're going to offer me some sort of deal, is that it?
It's no' just a deal.
This is a game changer.
A life changer.
What if I don't want my life to be changed?
You're selling businesses it took you years to build up.
I'd say it's changed already.
Still got your friends on the licensing committee, then?
I've got friends in all the right places,
that's sort of what I bring to the table.
And what do I bring to the table?
Apart from a big bag of disposable cash?
See that wee coffee shop of yours? In Shieldinch, yeah?
Big plans for that area. Plans you could be part of.
Flats. Apartment blocks. Shops. Waterfront promenade.
How much do you think I made from the bars?!
You don't fund the entire development.
You invest, yeah?
But then you become the face of the company
that buys the land and invests in the development.
Planning, construction - the works.
That's where the real money is.
I'm talking millions.
Potentially tens of millions.
Tell me how it works.
You and I form a partnership.
Only you're the silent kind of partner, am I right?
That's the way it's got to be.
I package together everything that's needed
but you have to be the face, the voice, the public figure.
And then what?
And then you have to hope that the city council
grants you preferred bidder status.
If only I had connections, eh?
What you thinking?
I'm thinking that wee coffee shop's going to be a gold mine.
The cherry on the icing on a very rich cake.
Is a handshake good enough for you?
All right, pal.
Is this you two having a wee celebration?
Oh, it must've been awful being a burden to Eileen all this time.
She never made us feel that way, I can assure you.
Same again, folks?
Aye, thanks, son.
I don't know, Malcolm, you've got that class later.
And I'll have a drink in the meantime.
Why don't I just leave you two in peace, eh?
All right, doll, how's it going?
Downhill, man. I need to speak to you.
So what's up?
Did your boss not like your big ideas?
He's selling the Oyster.
You're joking? Is that what he told you?
That he's thinking about it, aye.
Look, don't worry - you can get a few shifts behind the bar.
I don't want a few shifts behind the bar.
It was just an expression - I'll put you on the rota properly.
Thanks very much.
Right, start from the beginning, what did he say?
You look sensational. He'll be putty in your hands, believe me.
See you later. Bye.
Old flame, he looked her up on the internet.
Oof. Recipe for disaster.
Nice hair though.
Old flame, never a good idea.
Do loaded comments come free with every manicure?
Well, you are seeing Will tonight, aren't you?
It's not a date though, just a drink.
Two people, in a bar. Massive history. Massive baggage.
Sounds like a date to me. Well, it's not.
MOBILE BEEPS Feel free to get that.
It's Eileen. She wants to book me all day tomorrow.
What kind of state are her nails in?
No, not for here - for her office, council stuff.
Right, right - that does make more sense.
Just a half - got to get back to the centre in a bit.
Afternoon. I'll be seeing you shortly?
You will indeed.
Right, come on, you, what can I do to cheer you up?
Thanks. After you.
Oh, forgot my bag.
That's what comes from bossing me around instead of looking
out for your own business.
Malcolm, I just didn't want us to be late.
God forbid I should miss my shot on that wee tambourine!
Look, I'm sorry, I didn't mean...
Liz! What's wrong?!
Stevie, want to give us some help here?
Liz, can you hear me? Liz.
Dan, it's Liz, she's collapsed, she needs a doctor.
Let me just grab my bag.
Good work, Murray, you keep her head supported.
OK, Liz? Did you lose consciousness?
I don't know. Anyone?
I think so. Maybe only 30 seconds, but aye.
Ambulance is on its way.
Oh, no. I can't go to hospital. I can't.
We need to get you checked out, Liz.
Aye, that's all, that's all, just checked out, checked out.
Dad! What's happened? How's Liz?
I don't know, I don't know.
She's in with the doctor now.
How are you, Dad?
She's having tests, they said.
Let me go and see if I can get an update?
She's in the best place - they'll take good care of her.
It's my fault, it's my fault. Don't say that, Dad.
I shouldn't have upset her, shouting at her. It's my fault.
No. Aye, it's my fault.
She's OK - you can go in and see her now, just for a moment.
Come on, let's go.
It's all to do with blood pressure.
Is she not taking her pills?
She is and that's part of the problem - if Liz isn't getting
enough rest or eating properly, the medication is too strong.
So she gets dizzy spells.
Dad's blaming himself. It's a vicious circle.
Malcolm is getting more demanding which is putting
a strain on Liz's health - she gets ill, he panics...
Then he gets more demanding. Yeah, I get it.
The sooner their GP lodger moves back in the better.
I'm joking, really. You've been great but I'd never take advantage.
Actually, Eileen, I've paid up at this B till
the end of the month and then I'll be looking for my own place.
It's time. Oh, right. Sorry to spring it on you like this.
Dan, is there no way you can have a word?
They're insisting I stay in for observation.
And they are right to.
You get a good night's sleep, you'll be home in the morning.
I'll look after Dad - it's just for one night.
You know, I'm awfully thirsty,
could you refill the water jug for me, dear?
Thank you. Aye, of course, love, anything...
Maybe Dr Dan will show you where to go?
Right. Do you have a pen and paper?
You're going to need a list - your father's medication,
in fact his whole routine.
I think I can manage for one night without...
I would rather you wrote it down, Eileen, please.
Right, fire away.
First things first, his medication - the...
What do you call it?
The blister pack is in the kitchen drawer.
Now, they are to be taken at mealtimes
and one last thing at night.
But a very small amount of water with that last one, for if he's up
in the night to go to the bathroom he can get very disoriented.
And, yes, there's a book on the bedside table...
He'll feel better once he's had something to eat.
You and Stuart want to stay? There's plenty.
I probably should get the wee man to bed, eh?
Yeah, you're right, it's late.
I appreciate you taking him at short notice.
Don't be daft.
It's a pleasure - I love spending time with him, you know that.
If I tell you something,
will you promise not to think I'm a terrible person?
I know you better than that.
I always thought it would be Gina doing all this stuff.
I would do my share but not...
Not all of it, I know.
The way my dad is and Liz not being well,
I just see my life stretching out before me and...
..I'm scared. I don't know what I'm going to do!
Look, don't get upset.
I'll phone social services, see if there's support.
Look - I'll help out as much as I can.
I'll look after Stuart. I'll take your dad for a pint.
Might even see if he's up for a day's fishing if the weather's good.
That's kind. Thanks.
But I don't think it's going to be enough.
Right, you better get going.
MUSIC PLAYS OVER SPEECH
That's me lost a bet with myself.
How? I was half expecting the full walk of shame,
last night's clothes on, and all that.
Sorry to disappoint you.
Well, you didn't. I'm just glad you're taking it slow.
It was all very civilised, we just went for a drink.
So do you think you might, you know, take him back?
But it has to be mature and adult and mutually responsible -
both parties knowing exactly what they want and expect.
OK, well, in that case the sex is definitely out of it.
Oh, God, I pure fancy the pants off him, and I always have -
but I can't let that cloud my judgment any more.
You just keep remembering that. Deal. Are you coming in?
I'll pop the kettle on, you can be my life coach.
Much as I'd love to I need to get the office ready.
Got a council bigwig coming today. Yous are going up in the world.
Oh, what have I done with that damn thing?
I keep doing that, dropping it.
In the name of heaven, it must be here somewhere.
Where is it, for heaven's sake?
Have I looked here?
Maybe it's in here, aye. Here we go. Oh, no, no!
Dad what's going on? These bloody tablets.
I dropped one and I can't find it.
Liz usually watches me take them.
There's no need to get so worked up...
What if wee Stuart comes in and picks it up and thinks it's a sweetie?
I'll hoover before that.
Aye, that's a good idea - I'll go and get it.
No, no, Dad. No, no, not now, I can't now.
I just don't like the idea of medicine lying about.
Wait, wait, what tablet? What pill?
The wee capsule thing, red and white.
I haven't had a look in here.
Dad, you've taken that one. You had it after your breakfast.
I gave it to you myself.
Are you sure? Positive. I even ticked it off the list.
Oh thank heaven.
I'll get this lot cleared up.
I'm sorry, darlin'. I'm really sorry.
Look, that'll be Raymond, you go and let him in. OK.
Ah, welcome, how's tricks?
You're a life saver. Are you sure you've got time?
Plenty. I've just got to be back for a viewing at 11.00.
So what do you say, Mr Hamilton, sir?
Shall we fetch your good lady wife from the hospital
and bring her back home where she belongs?
Indeed we shall, we shall indeed.
Great, let's go.
We'll get your coat, eh? Ah, right.
Yeah, it's for my dad and his wife.
If you could look into that, that would be wonderful.
I really appreciate that.
OK, thanks, bye.
Hey! Is everything OK?
Yes, I'm just looking into getting some help for my dad and Liz.
I heard about her wee dizzy spell. How's she doing?
She's fine, they're letting her out of hospital this morning.
That's good. It's lucky they've got you on the doorstep.
Yeah, there's a lot of folk worse off, I suppose.
Is that the guy?
Yep, that's the guy.
Frank Paton, you must be Kelly-Marie.
Aye, I must be.
The councillor here speaks very highly of you.
Can I get you anything? Cup of tea?
I was thinking we might take a wee tour of the neighbourhood,
if that's OK with you, Eileen? Yeah, fine.
You're honoured - that's my mum putting her posh voice on.
Shut it, you. How's business, Scarlett, is it good?
Busy enough, aye. Are you open 24 hours?
No way! I'm here long enough as it is. I bet.
Still, if you'd enough customers you could take on more staff.
I can't see that paying, not round here.
Well, round here might be changing.
New homes, new businesses, more shops.
What kind of shops?
Not a supermarket, not even a convenience store.
That's stipulated in the proposals, right?
Oh, aye, this development's about giving people a wider option.
That might mean opening 24 hours.
Oh! Suppose that might mean your Bob will get his old job back.
It's possible. Can you tell us how busy it gets in here?
It may be helpful for the planning people.
Well, head office send us an e-mail once a month
but I don't really take any notice.
Tell you what, forward the next one to Eileen.
Nae bother. Anything to help a mate.
Morning. Hi, Leyla, this is Frank Paton from the city council.
Frank, this is Mrs Brodie, and Dr Hunter. Hi. Hi.
Frank's here to talk about patient capacity.
We're looking to green-light a new housing development in the area,
just sounding folk out. Looks like you could handle a few more.
Yeah, well, it's not usually this quiet.
Aye, sometimes you struggle to get an appointment. We do our best.
I know, I know.
I suppose it depends on what kind of numbers you're thinking about.
I was talking to a friend at the NHS. He was saying that
walk-in centres tied to local practices are the way forward.
Is that something you've ever looked into?
Not in any great detail. I thought it was an interesting option.
Can you spare ten minutes?
We can spare five.
This area here is where the major development is going to be.
Modern affordable housing for young hardworking families.
Hundreds more cars. Allocated parking at the rear.
But they still need to go in and out though, don't they?
What about weans crossing the road?
We'll make sure there's speed bumps in place. Look...
I want a community, not somewhere that's just handy for the M8.
You're a single parent, holding down two jobs,
this whole thing will be perfect for people like you.
More flats could mean your own place. Independence.
Aye, it could be great, eh? Glasgow's changing for the better
and this here is going to be a big part of it.
You don't look like you're here for Rhyme Time...
Murray Crozier, he's the centre manager.
I'm sorry, I'm going to have to take this.
Hi, is everything OK?
Right, I'll be there in a minute.
I'm really sorry I'm going to have to go.
Mr Crozier, Frank Paton, City Council.
Do you mind if we have a wee chat?
City Council? Is there something wrong?
No, not at all.
Just give us a wee minute.
Oh, Liz, it's great to have you back.
It's nice to be home.
And how are you feeling?
I'm tired, Eileen.
And the doctor said it was OK for her to get out?
All she needs is rest and she can get that here.
Are you sure you wouldn't be better in your bed?
No, no, dear, I'm fine here.
What about your medication?
There's a prescription... it's on the table.
Would you be able to go to the chemist?
Yeah, yeah, of course.
I'll get that, I've got to go for that viewing anyway.
Yeah, you get going. Bye, all.
I'll make us a big pot of tea.
I'll do that...
You've got your work to go to.
Work can wait, you keep your darling wife company.
Is Frank away?
Did he put you in the picture? Very much so.
I'll be updating my CV tonight.
I'm not with you.
I know how these things pan out.
Community centre closed and relocated due to building works.
I think you're being overly pessimistic.
And I think you're being naive, COUNCILLOR Donachie.
Paton as good as told me.
When you say, "as good as"?
What exactly did he say.
That's excellent, mate.
Yeah, I'll call you later, yeah. Cheers.
Do you think it's wise, you being here?
I'm just a politician, supporting a local, thriving
independent business, nothing wrong with that.
OK. I'm very impressed.
Aye, it's all right. A bit old-fashioned...
Not by the cafe, by the girl that's running it.
Frank, can I have a word, please?
Eileen, is there a problem?
You tell me. I was talking to Murray Crozier,
he seems to feel that the community centre's in jeopardy.
That's what I get for being straight with folk. Well, be straight with me.
We're not going to take it away, are we?
It's a major construction project, access will be an issue.
Look, Frank, my father uses that centre.
Moss Green can absorb the groups that use it.
We can lay on a shuttle bus. The developers will pay for it.
Hurray for the developers(!)
Eileen, you're a realist. The council are potless.
For this to happen we need private investment.
Sorry, there's my car.
Please, Eileen, no more worrying, OK?
You've got enough on your plate already.
Single or double?
Single. Stick it on my tab.
You'll need to pay that off when you sell up.
I suppose I will.
Have one yourself, you look tired.
Aye, I've been up all night, wasting my time.
Bank websites, loan company websites.
business initiative websites.
I never even got far enough to speak to an actual human.
I'm human. Talk to me.
Buying this place.
Tell me why you want it.
It runs like clockwork but I know I could do better.
I'd shift suppliers straightaway
because the ones we've got now take us for granted.
If we shopped about we'd get a better service and a better deal.
Cater for a younger market,
stick a telly on the wall, open later. That kind of thing.
And if the punter numbers doubled, or tripled, could you cope?
Aye, well, we'd need to expand, wouldn't we?
Put tables through the back and convert the basement for toilets and storage.
Given this a lot of thought, haven't you?
I think you should just give me it, out of the goodness of your heart.
Aye, well, I'm not going to be doing that,
but I'm not going to be selling it either.
I'm staying...you're staying.
Thank God for that.
Look, I'm sorry if you were worried about your job.
It's your business, your choice.
That doesn't seem fair though, does it?
Look, if you can't get a loan,
why don't you try saving?
In 18 months or two years from now...
I'd never manage to get enough to buy you out.
No, you could get enough for a stake - 5%, 10 maybe?
Thank you for getting back to me, I know how busy you guys are.
When you say an assessment list...?
Well, I'll just... I'll just wait to hear from you whenever there's...
I'm sorry for abandoning you. You didn't.
I can't even stay long now, I want to get back to my dad and Liz.
Are they OK?
Yeah. That was just social work getting back to me.
We're going to have to wait a few weeks for an assessment.
Apparently, we're not a crisis. Eileen...
why don't you take a wee seat and I'll make you a cup of tea?
I think if I sit down I'm not going to want to get back up again.
I don't know what to do!
Liz looks terrible. She looks terrible.
And my dad's not even having one of his worst days
and he just needs so much help.
It's OK. It's OK to be scared. Is it?
Good, cos I am.
You've got me, you know...
and Raymond, and my ma.
Loads of people round here care.
Eileen, whatever you need to go through,
you don't need to do it on your own. Thank you.
So can I get that tea for you?
Don't re-boil the kettle, squeeze the tea bag,
pour the milk, don't splash it. Are you saying I'm a fussy cow?
As if I would.
It's just how my dad taught me.
Actually, I'm going nip out. Sorry.
What do you think?
It's great. Loads of space. Yeah.
That wee room would be perfect for Ollie if he ever came to stay.
Yeah, we had it done up for Stuart.
Are you sure about this, Eileen?
It's the best thing for everyone concerned.
I could provide a referral.
Might speed things up with social services. Thank you.
You're perfectly placed for the surgery here. Absolutely.
In fact, between you and me,
I'm thinking about making it a more permanent arrangement over there.
I've been speaking to Miriam about buying the practice.
Dan, that's fantastic.
Yeah, but not a word of it until it's a done deal?
Apparently there's some hold up with the council over the lease.
I don't know why.
Maybe you can speak to your pal Frank Paton. Yeah, I will, I'll do that.
I am going to like it here.
Right, you, get your jacket, you've pulled.
I'm taking you out. Pizza, pictures, the bowling, whatever you want.
Stevie, I cannae. How not?
You're meant to finish ten minutes ago and thanks to
some rota manipulation, I've just got the night off.
I'm sorry, I should've phoned you.
You've went to all this trouble. What you on about,
it's no trouble. I just thought since you needed cheering up...
I know. Well, I don't any more.
Alex isn't selling.
That's brilliant news. I know! You get to keep your job.
Oh, it's better than that. How do you mean?
Away you go home while I phone these dafties, all right?
I'll let you know when I get in.
Hiya. Oh, hello.
Ah! Ah I've missed it.
Never mind, we'll be able to watch it together tomorrow.
Me and Stuart are going to come and live here.
Do you mean that? If you'll have us.
Of course we will but are you sure that's what you want?
Yeah, this is my home, Dad, it's where I was brought up,
and I can't think of anywhere better for my own wee boy.
I turned out all right, didn't I?
You did that, my darlin'.
Dan's going to take over Gina's flat so he'll have his own place
and she won't be out of pocket.
You've got it all worked out, haven't you?
You're not the only person that likes having things organised, Liz.
Oh, thank you, Eileen.
You'll be a great help to Dad and me.
Well, I'm just after a couple of free baby-sitters.
This is a good, kind, decent thing that you are doing.
Well, it's the way I was brought up.
Right, see you soon.
I think it's very good of you, Eileen.
Mind you, I know my Scarlett would do the same for me.
Mind you, you don't how long it's going to be for, don't you not?
I mean, poor Malcolm's not going to live for ever, eh?
And you're not going to last five more minutes
if you don't watch how you talk to folk!
It's OK, Scarlett, really.
No, Molly, he's not going to live for ever,
that's why I want to spend time with him when I've got the chance.
I think it's marvellous what you're doing, Eileen.
Looking after two sick pensioners and a wean?
And no spring chicken yourself, no offence.
None taken. And your man-eating days are behind you, right enough.
Will you shut it? Is a person not allowed an opinion round here?
Just ignore her, Eileen. I'm way ahead of you, Scarlett.
Eh, I want a tin of beans, the ones with they mad sausages in them?
Over there, bottom shelf.
Stella was never much use in the kitchen.
What're you on about?
She's a brilliant cook, she's just working late, that's all.
Are they going to be implementing my suggestion forthwith?
What? Freebies for pensioners, she means.
I don't know. He was going to sell it off this time yesterday.
Who was, Alex?
Aye. Oh, but don't panic, he's changed his mind. Aren't we lucky?
See folk like him, they think they can do what they want.
Yeah, they do, don't they?
There's your change, Eileen.
HE PLAYS "Someone To Watch Over Me"
Do we have an appointment? I do. Just not with you.
Give us a wee minute?
Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the attitude.
I suppose it must come as a bit of a shock
after how hard you worked getting me onside.
All I've done the last 48 hours is treat you with respect and courtesy.
Like an equal.
Like a fellow political animal, like somebody that knows the score.
Because I thought you did. No, because it's what I wanted to hear.
Just like Kelly-Marie wants to dream about a better place to live
and Scarlett wants to know her job is secure.
You are a used car salesman.
Let's not start trading insults, please.
Don't worry, I've been calling myself much worse ever since I found out what's going on.
Why don't you tell me exactly what you think is going on?
I don't know.
But I got a tip off last night about the compulsory purchase order
for the Shieldinch Health Centre.
It's going to be sold off, isn't it?
So are the patients going to just get absorbed like the groups from the community centre?
And are you going to lay on another shuttle bus for the sick folk?
If that's what it takes.
And the people in your shiny new apartments they're not going to get ill, are they?
Look, Eileen, there are only two choices here - progress or decay.
The people in those shiny new apartments demand a certain standard
and the people you represent will benefit from that too, ultimately.
My friends and my family deserve better
than the crumbs off someone else's table.
You'll have to excuse me.
I don't have much time.
I'm due at the transport and travel sub committee.
Transport and travel?
They've got a vacancy. Well, not for long.
So you can be a nuisance to the regeneration project? A nuisance?
My new colleagues will be interested to know that's how we're viewed by senior officials.
Look, I know you're worried about your father.
If you like, I could have a word with social services.
Thank you, but I've already spoken to the relevant agencies.
A word from me might be more effective.
Actually, I think you trying to exploit my father's illness
makes you despicable.
This thing is going to go through
and, if you're not part of it, where does that leave your career?
The people on your side will think you failed them,
everyone else will think you've been too short-sighted to see the potential.
I think you've got a lot more to offer.
A lot more...given the right circumstances.
I'll see you around.
Yes, you will.
We're good or we're bad?
I keep thinking about Mandy Kennedy.
Don't. I can't help it.
Let's get out of here.
Maybe the trick is just to let things happen.
Well, this was a brutal attack, so I'll take anything you've got.
I know how brutal it was, I was in the ambulance with Samuel.
Look, I need to be getting back,
I've got other clients that I need to see back at the house.
I'll give you a lift. I'll need to speak to everyone there anyway.
They don't trust the police.
This is Peter Roberts, sorry we're late.
Petey, how long have you been here?
He's been attacked twice since he's been in here,
what sort of place is this?
The kind of place people like you don't notice, PC Cooper,
until you get a personal interest.
