-Linda Radleigh, new head of English.

-This is her first HOD post, but not before time.

0:00:020:00:04

Flattery will get you everywhere.

0:00:040:00:06

-Never know who might give you the eye.

-Have you not got my message?

0:00:060:00:10

What did she want?

0:00:100:00:11

What, apart from me body and me brains?

0:00:110:00:13

Body maybe.

0:00:130:00:14

The right woman is out there... somewhere.

0:00:140:00:17

-How was the honeymoon?

-It was fine, thank you.

-Fine? It was amazing.

0:00:170:00:20

Mrs Diamond wants three sides on sexual reproduction.

0:00:200:00:24

-That's more my area of expertise.

-Is that all you think about?

0:00:240:00:27

-That's her ex you're slagging off.

-Jez!

0:00:270:00:29

-You and Michael?

-They had a bit of a fling, ey, darling?

0:00:290:00:32

I should never have left you.

0:00:320:00:33

You know what? I never really liked whiskey.

0:00:330:00:36

How long have you been up?

0:01:460:01:48

All night, trying to finish this coursework.

0:01:490:01:52

I can't even think straight. My head's banging.

0:01:520:01:55

Why don't you go and get a couple of hours, put your head down? I can tell school you're ill.

0:01:550:01:59

Ronan, you don't get it, I'm re-sitting, it's my last chance.

0:01:590:02:03

Please, will you just let me concentrate.

0:02:030:02:06

OK, just don't push yourself too hard, yeah?

0:02:060:02:09

Don't worry. I'll tidy up when I get back.

0:02:350:02:37

-You know the rent's due on this place?

-Yeah, I know.

0:02:370:02:40

We're short by 50 quid.

0:02:400:02:43

And, oh, let me guess, you spent that on fruit?

0:02:430:02:46

Don't worry. We'll have enough when I sell this.

0:02:460:02:48

"Don't worry"? That's all I've done since we moved in here.

0:02:480:02:52

Da da! Happy birthday, son.

0:03:000:03:02

It's all yours.

0:03:020:03:04

-Like it?

-It's the best present I've ever had.

0:03:050:03:08

-Can I ride it to school?

-Yeah, how else you going to impress the girls?

0:03:080:03:11

Dad, can I get a quad bike when I'm 16?

0:03:110:03:15

Well, we'll see.

0:03:150:03:17

Ooh, I best be off.

0:03:170:03:18

Right, and please, please, be careful on that thing.

0:03:180:03:22

Yeah... and thanks, Dad.

0:03:220:03:27

See you later.

0:03:280:03:30

Give us a backie, then.

0:03:320:03:34

Don't be stupid. Have a nice walk.

0:03:340:03:36

Please say we've got another ink cartridge.

0:04:010:04:03

Oh, brilliant. Well, you just take care of yourself.

0:04:030:04:07

Never mind about me.

0:04:070:04:08

DOORBELL RINGS

0:04:090:04:10

-It's Madi.

-What does she want?

0:04:120:04:14

-She's getting me some plastic containers.

-You told her to come?

0:04:140:04:17

Yeah.

0:04:170:04:19

Hey, you all right? I got them.

0:04:220:04:24

Oh, great.

0:04:240:04:25

Hey, all right.

0:04:250:04:27

There you go. You can have the heavy one.

0:04:280:04:31

Thank you. See you in a bit.

0:04:310:04:34

I'll get the door. You take that.

0:04:370:04:42

-OK.

-Excuse me!

0:04:420:04:43

Good to see you back, sir.

0:05:000:05:02

Morning, ladies.

0:05:040:05:06

All right.

0:05:060:05:07

I've got to go hand my coursework in. I'll see you later.

0:05:070:05:11

Face it, Finn, she just doesn't like you.

0:05:110:05:14

Oi!

0:05:170:05:19

What do you think you're doing?

0:05:190:05:21

Er, I don't know who you think you are but... Oi!

0:05:240:05:27

-You!? Where d'you get this?

-It's my birthday present.

0:05:350:05:38

Happy birthday!

0:05:380:05:39

Oh, you jammy git!

0:05:390:05:41

Have you seen this?

0:05:410:05:43

Trying to impress?

0:05:430:05:44

Take you for a ride later if you like?

0:05:440:05:47

Nice bike, Phoenix, do you have a licence for it?

0:05:470:05:50

Course he has.

0:05:500:05:51

Scout, Emily, you should both be in your form rooms, off you go.

0:05:510:05:54

Laters, yeah.

0:05:540:05:56

Come on, let's get this home, please.

0:05:560:05:58

It's a present. I'm 16 today.

0:05:580:06:00

Exactly. It's your birthday today

0:06:000:06:03

so I know you haven't had a chance to do your CBT.

0:06:030:06:05

Which means it's illegal for you to be riding it.

0:06:050:06:08

Sir, if you'd just got a brand new set of wheels,

0:06:080:06:10

-you'd want to show them off as well.

-I'll tell your form tutor you'll be a little bit late.

0:06:100:06:15

-Great, thanks a lot.

-Many happy returns.

0:06:150:06:17

Scrum machine?

0:06:190:06:21

Looks more like an instrument of torture than sports equipment.

0:06:210:06:24

Why's Michael so into rugby anyway?

0:06:240:06:26

It's change, Tom, embrace it.

0:06:260:06:29

He wants the kids to try different things.

0:06:290:06:31

What do you reckon?

0:06:370:06:38

Very good. It's going to take more than a fancy kit to win

0:06:380:06:42

-the game, though.

-Well, me and Sian are going to be celebrating tonight.

0:06:420:06:46

Name your restaurant, no expense spared.

0:06:460:06:48

Concentrate on preparing the team

0:06:480:06:50

instead of worrying about where you're going to eat this evening.

0:06:500:06:54

I've got it under control.

0:06:540:06:55

Let's hope so. Hasn't exactly been the best start now, has it?

0:06:550:07:00

I'll see you later.

0:07:030:07:05

And, Jeremy, good luck.

0:07:050:07:06

Today's match was my idea so let's make sure we win.

0:07:060:07:10

Well, St Mary's have been playing rugby

0:07:140:07:17

since Bruce Forsyth was a lad.

0:07:170:07:19

Pressure's on, Jez.

0:07:190:07:20

-We'll win, all right?

-Whatever happens, I think you've done an amazing job.

0:07:200:07:24

Give me a football any day of the week.

0:07:240:07:26

You think I'm up to it, don't ya?

0:07:260:07:28

Of course I do. You've put everything into this

0:07:280:07:32

and you're my husband. See you in a bit.

0:07:320:07:34

Everyone, Chalky's here.

0:07:430:07:45

Oh, I wish that I looked as good as you after...

0:07:500:07:53

-you know.

-Arteriosclerosis of the cardiac arteries.

0:07:530:07:57

Well, you're back, that's the main thing.

0:07:580:08:00

Thanks.

0:08:000:08:01

Tea? Coffee?

0:08:050:08:06

No, don't drink the stuff.

0:08:060:08:08

Listen. The lads have been working really, really hard

0:08:080:08:11

and the improvements we've had in the time we've had have been amazing.

0:08:110:08:15

That's Linda, she's going to be refereeing the match.

0:08:150:08:18

Ken Watling.

0:08:180:08:19

Jez tells me you played for Harlequins?

0:08:190:08:21

Women refs. God help us!

0:08:210:08:24

-I'm fully qualified.

-I don't care how many exams you've got, if you haven't played

0:08:240:08:28

with men, you shouldn't referee them.

0:08:280:08:31

I thought Cro-Magnon man went extinct 35,000 years ago?

0:08:310:08:33

Ken, I'll show you round, mate.

0:08:330:08:35

-Who's that?

-Jez's misogynistic rugby mentor.

0:08:380:08:41

He thinks I should be chained to a sink, not refereeing a rugby match.

0:08:410:08:45

Rugby mentor. He didn't tell me.

0:08:450:08:47

He'll soon change his mind when he sees me in my shorts.

0:08:470:08:51

I don't doubt it.

0:08:520:08:53

These'll go like hot cakes. Could you do me another hundred for tomorrow?

0:08:580:09:02

Yeah, no problem. I might have to look at the price again, though.

0:09:020:09:05

-I'm practically giving this lot away.

-Ronan, you're robbing me already.

0:09:050:09:09

Come on, 90 pence a unit, what do you say?

0:09:090:09:11

I say you drive a hard bargain. But OK.

0:09:110:09:14

Hey, you're good at that. How much are you going to make?

0:09:160:09:19

Nothing. I've got no money for stock.

0:09:190:09:22

Oh, and I need to pay this month's rent, Vicki's going to kill me.

0:09:220:09:25

Well, I can get money.

0:09:250:09:28

My dad lets me use his credit card.

0:09:280:09:30

Nah, I couldn't.

0:09:300:09:31

He never checks his bank statements.

0:09:310:09:33

Tell me what you want, I'll get it. Then you pay my dad back.

0:09:330:09:36

Well, I'll have to take a cut, of course.

0:09:360:09:38

Yeah... I mean, that'd be amazing.

0:09:380:09:41

But I'm not going to tell Vicki about this.

0:09:420:09:44

I just want to keep it as a surprise.

0:09:440:09:47

Well, I charge more for my silence.

0:09:470:09:49

I could really do with the help. You never know, you might even enjoy it.

0:09:520:09:58

Look, I know you're trying to cheer me up, Matt,

0:09:580:09:59

but I'm fine, honestly, thanks for trying.

0:09:590:10:01

OK.

0:10:010:10:03

I am trying to cheer you up

0:10:030:10:04

and do you know what, I actually hate people that do that to me.

0:10:040:10:08

But it might take your mind off things.

0:10:080:10:10

I haven't played for ages, though.

0:10:100:10:13

My room, lunchtime.

0:10:130:10:16

All right?

0:10:240:10:26

Hey, I'm sorry about before.

0:10:260:10:27

I'm sorry about the ink.

0:10:270:10:29

It's all right.

0:10:290:10:30

Look, can you just give this fruit business a rest,

0:10:300:10:33

just till there's less pressure?

0:10:330:10:36

What pressure? I mean, for you, exams and that aren't a problem.

0:10:360:10:41

Well, I just can't afford to mess up this time.

0:10:410:10:45

You, Miss MacDonald, are a genius, you'll ace it.

0:10:450:10:47

Mrs Diamond loves you. And I love you.

0:10:470:10:49

Yeah, OK, no problem... I'll, er...

0:10:550:10:58

I'll leave it a few weeks, yeah?

0:10:580:11:00

Excuse me, mate, have you seen Nelson?

0:12:050:12:07

-The bloke with one arm and a dodgy eye?

-I'm his son.

0:12:070:12:10

Oh, right, he's there.

0:12:100:12:12

Oi, what are you doing here?

0:12:150:12:17

-Mr Byrne won't let me take my moped into school, he sent me home.

-Flaming cheek.

0:12:170:12:21

-What did he do that for?

-Rules, apparently. I've been thinking about leaving.

0:12:210:12:25

What did Mr Byrne say?

0:12:250:12:26

He said I'm 16, so I can leave when I want.

0:12:260:12:29

-Right, come on, let's get you kitted out.

-What for?

0:12:300:12:33

You can come and work for me. Welcome to the working world.

0:12:330:12:37

Why bring a coach in on the day of a match?

0:12:380:12:40

Over to you, mate.

0:12:400:12:42

Dad says it's about trying to get us all focussed and that,

0:12:420:12:45

playing as a team.

0:12:450:12:46

Sounds a bit desperate to me. We're going to get slaughtered, man.

0:12:460:12:50

Right, boys! Over here.

0:12:500:12:52

This is Ken Watling.

0:12:560:12:58

He's a professional rugby coach and he's ex-Harlequins prop forward. He's one of the best.

0:12:580:13:02

Mr Diamond.

0:13:020:13:04

You got a second?

0:13:040:13:05

This is a school initiative, Jeremy. You should've consulted me before bringing in an outsider, no offence.

0:13:070:13:12

-None taken.

-You told me to think big.

0:13:120:13:14

I've turned footballers into rugby players in weeks. This is just a bit of extra help.

0:13:140:13:19

Mr Byrne, innit?

0:13:190:13:20

Yeah, heard about you. Got stabbed by a kid, yeah?

0:13:230:13:26

And he walked? Should've thrown away the key, the little scrote.

0:13:260:13:31

He'd better be worth it.

0:13:310:13:33

I am.

0:13:340:13:36

-Go on, Ken.

-Right, who's captain?

0:13:380:13:41

Right, you, shift this thing with me on it,

0:13:410:13:43

five yards that way. Come on.

0:13:430:13:45

What, on me own?

0:13:450:13:46

No, go and get some Year Seven girls to help you. Of course, on your own, you fool, now go on, get.

0:13:460:13:52

Right, three, two, one.

0:13:520:13:55

Come on, boy, heave!

0:13:570:13:58

Pump those calves, sunshine, go on, pump those calves, lad!

0:14:000:14:04

Wait a second, wait a second.

0:14:040:14:05

I forgot to take off the break.

0:14:060:14:08

Well, I think he passed the captain's test.

0:14:080:14:11

He never gave up, you see, boys, he never gave up.

0:14:110:14:14

And the good news is

0:14:140:14:16

Ken's working with you after break. So, yes,

0:14:160:14:18

-that means you're all off timetable.

-Sir, I can't make it after break.

0:14:180:14:22

-Ronan, you've got...

-Oi, it's not up for debate, son.

0:14:220:14:25

Do you want to lead this team or not?

0:14:250:14:28

Go on, off you go.

0:14:280:14:29

Ha ha, who's that?

0:14:330:14:34

Uh, that's Zack. He's our scrum half.

0:14:340:14:37

Is he bloody 'eck as like!

0:14:370:14:38

I've seen more meat on a sparrow's kneecap.

0:14:380:14:41

He's quick.

0:14:410:14:42

So's diarrhoea.

0:14:420:14:43

Look, I've got to say, Jez, some of these lads don't look like rugby players.

0:14:430:14:47

Don't tell me you're into mixed ability sport?

0:14:470:14:50

No, but I think everyone should be given a chance to shine.

0:14:510:14:55

Look, sport is about winning, yeah?

0:14:550:14:57

Sod all this, "It's the taking part that counts".

0:14:570:14:59

I just hope Jeremy understands how important this game is.

0:15:020:15:04

It's not just about rugby, this is about aspiration,

0:15:040:15:07

helping these kids strive to be better.

0:15:070:15:10

I get it, you want to put the school on the map,

0:15:100:15:13

but there's no need to speak to Jez like that. He's done an amazing job setting this up.

0:15:130:15:17

-I'm sorry, you're right. It's just hard for me seeing you with him.

-I meant what I said.

0:15:170:15:22

I know.

0:15:220:15:23

-Vicki? Everything OK?

-Yeah, fine sir.

0:15:260:15:31

-Just got a lot on.

-We've got high hopes for you, Vicki.

0:15:310:15:34

Have you thought any more about what university you want to go to?

0:15:340:15:38

-Leeds has a great science department.

-I was thinking London.

0:15:380:15:41

You know where I am if you want to chat through your options.

0:15:410:15:44

You sure about this?

0:15:500:15:53

I said I'd help you. I've only got art after break.

0:15:530:15:56

No, I mean about the money.

0:15:560:15:57

Stop worrying. It's not like my dad can't afford it.

0:15:570:16:01

# I've been trying to get you to love me

0:16:050:16:09

# I've been trying to get you to care

0:16:090:16:14

# Put forth a lot of effort

0:16:160:16:19

# But I just don't seem to get nowhere. #

0:16:210:16:26

Why are they all scared of you?

0:16:400:16:42

Two weeks here, you'll be the same.

0:16:420:16:44

Won't it be weird having me here?

0:16:440:16:46

No. It means I'll be able to keep an eye on you,

0:16:460:16:48

plus you're someone I can trust to do a good job.

0:16:480:16:51

-I think I'll be a brickie. You can earn 400 quid a day.

-Good.

0:16:510:16:54

You know what? This is well better than school.

0:17:000:17:02

So I'm pushing it like this, yeah, and he's on top,

0:17:090:17:12

-must be about 20 stone, easy.

-No way.

0:17:120:17:13

And everyone's like, "Go on, Ro!"

0:17:130:17:15

-So I'm pushing it, and he just jumps off and takes the brake out.

-Why did he pick on you?

0:17:150:17:20

Well, I'm captain. Reckon he wanted to see if I was up for it.

0:17:200:17:23

-Oh, yeah?

-Having a nice time?

0:17:230:17:25

Oh, you all right, Vicki?

0:17:250:17:27

Look, I think you should tell her now.

0:17:270:17:30

Tell me what?

0:17:300:17:32

The canteen want him to do another hundred.

0:17:320:17:36

It's good money, Vic.

0:17:360:17:37

Let me guess. Spent the rent money?

0:17:370:17:40

No, I lent it to him.

0:17:400:17:42

It's a loan. I'm paying it back.

0:17:420:17:44

Get out.

0:17:440:17:46

-But Vicki, I was just...

-Get out!

0:17:460:17:48

Madi's a mate, you had no right to talk to her like that.

0:17:540:17:58

-I know what's going on here, Ronan.

-No, you don't.

0:17:580:18:00

I got an order, a chance for us to make us some money.

0:18:000:18:03

Once I've sold this, I'll have enough money

0:18:030:18:05

-for rent and some left over.

-I don't care about the rent.

0:18:050:18:08

-I never asked to move into that flat. You just did it.

-I did it for us. I thought it would help.

0:18:080:18:12

Help what? You don't get it, Ro. I am stressed out, I've got you banging on all the time.

0:18:120:18:16

All I want to do is concentrate on my work.

0:18:160:18:18

So let me do my thing and I'll let you do yours.

0:18:180:18:22

I get that you want to do well in your exams, but can you try being a bit nicer sometimes?

0:18:220:18:26

That's why I asked Madi to help me. Because she was interested.

0:18:260:18:30

-She didn't look at me like I was a loser.

-Because she fancies you!

0:18:300:18:33

At least someone does!

0:18:330:18:34

Vicki, what are you doing? Stop it!

0:18:350:18:38

Leave me alone! Stop! Vicki.

0:18:380:18:41

Stop! Get off. Stop it!

0:18:410:18:44

Listen to this. "Ken Watling. Not the most gifted of forwards.

0:18:560:19:00

"What he lacked in skill he made up for in sheer brute force."

0:19:000:19:03

What? Look, I've got to go, I'll see you in class, yeah, mate?

0:19:030:19:08

Meet me for lunch?

0:19:090:19:11

What? I can't.

0:19:110:19:12

Back of the canteen, I'll be waiting.

0:19:120:19:15

I'm really sorry.

0:19:210:19:22

Ronan?

0:19:250:19:26

Look, everything's just getting to me.

0:19:300:19:33

I feel like people are just watching me and waiting for me to fail.

0:19:330:19:37

Not me, Vic, I've never doubted you.

0:19:380:19:40

I know. Sometimes that makes it worse.

0:19:420:19:44

I'm just scared that if I do fail,

0:19:470:19:50

I won't be the person that you want me to be.

0:19:500:19:52

I've never cared about your achievements,

0:19:520:19:55

I just wanted to make you happy.

0:19:550:19:57

I am so sorry, Ronan. I was just in a state,

0:19:590:20:03

and I saw you and Madi and... I just lost it.

0:20:030:20:07

I need to be getting back.

0:20:070:20:09

Ronan, please.

0:20:110:20:12

Let's just forget this ever happened, yeah?

0:20:140:20:16

Yeah, course.

0:20:160:20:18

BELL RINGS

0:20:180:20:20

So, you're getting your arses kicked, and there's ten to go.

0:20:310:20:36

Where d'you turn to for inspiration?

0:20:360:20:39

The coach?

0:20:390:20:41

No. He'll be as much use to you as tits on a bull.

0:20:410:20:44

It's the captain's job to motivate the team.

0:20:460:20:49

-Go on, Ro!

-Go on!

0:20:490:20:52

Shouldn't we be talking about tactics and stuff?

0:20:540:20:56

What a good idea! Tactics and stuff. Right, then.

0:20:560:20:59

Why don't you get the ball rolling?

0:20:590:21:02

Right, come on, stand up, everyone. On your feet.

0:21:050:21:08

I want you all to join hands, yeah? We're a team.

0:21:080:21:11

Every player is a vital link, yeah?

0:21:110:21:14

You'll have your heads between sweaty male thighs in a few hours,

0:21:140:21:17

so what's worse? Come on!

0:21:170:21:20

Aw, what's wrong, sunshine?

0:21:210:21:23

Doesn't your girlfriend let you hold hands with anybody else now?

0:21:230:21:27

-Right, come on, let's go and show everyone we're a team, yeah?

-Yeah!

-Let's go, go!

0:21:270:21:31

You joining us?

0:21:390:21:41

Right, coursework files, please.

0:21:440:21:48

Thank you, Tom. Thank you.

0:21:490:21:52

Vicki?

0:21:540:21:56

Er, Miss, can I give you mine tomorrow?

0:21:560:21:58

Vicki, this is becoming a habit.

0:21:580:22:00

Yeah, I just need more time.

0:22:000:22:03

-How did you get that?

-Oh, um, I just walked into a cupboard door.

0:22:030:22:06

-Here, let me see it.

-I need a clamp.

0:22:060:22:09

-When did this happen?

-Uh, this morning.

0:22:110:22:14

Vicki, is something the matter?

0:22:150:22:17

No, why?

0:22:170:22:18

Look, I walked into a door, it happens.

0:22:190:22:21

Fine. But I want that work in tomorrow, no excuses.

0:22:240:22:27

Apparently, his dad's working on some new apartments in the city centre. There's the address.

0:22:320:22:36

-Thanks, Janeece.

-Can I have a word?

0:22:360:22:38

-Yep, but you'll have to be quick. I've got a building site to visit.

-Really?

0:22:380:22:42

Yeah, Phoenix Taylor's been AWOL all day.

0:22:420:22:46

I'm going to talk to his dad, see if we can't get it sorted.

0:22:460:22:49

What was it you wanted?

0:22:490:22:50

Ronan Burley. I think he might be physically abusing Vicki MacDonald.

0:22:500:22:54

What?! She was fine earlier.

0:22:540:22:56

-She's got a black eye now. I know it doesn't sound like Ronan...

-No, it doesn't.

0:22:560:23:01

Look into it, let me know.

0:23:010:23:02

-Hi.

-Hi.

0:23:070:23:09

Oh, those two, eh?

0:23:090:23:11

Can't prise them apart.

0:23:110:23:13

I know, they make a dead good team, don't they?

0:23:130:23:16

Oh, you mean them two...

0:23:170:23:20

God, no! Sian's married.

0:23:200:23:22

Janeece, you've a very suspicious mind.

0:23:220:23:25

Madi? I wondered if I could have a word?

0:23:370:23:39

It's about Vicki McDonald and Ronan.

0:23:390:23:42

If it's gossip you're after, you'll have to go elsewhere.

0:23:420:23:45

I was just wondering if they'd been having any problems. Vicki's under a lot of pressure.

0:23:450:23:49

Well, so's Ronan in case you hadn't noticed.

0:23:490:23:51

But running a fruit and veg stall isn't the same as A-level chemistry, is it?

0:23:510:23:55

Course not.

0:23:550:23:57

Look, I know you like Ronan.

0:23:590:24:00

Yeah, as a mate!

0:24:000:24:02

What's that?

0:24:020:24:04

Oh, it's my dad's credit card. I borrowed it.

0:24:040:24:07

That's OUR credit card.

0:24:070:24:09

Yeah, well, I wanted some clothes. He lets me.

0:24:090:24:12

Oh, go on, then, go ask my dad if you don't believe me.

0:24:120:24:15

Don't worry, I will!

0:24:150:24:17

Right, lads, I don't mind telling you,

0:24:260:24:29

Mr Byrne's been putting pressure on me...on us.

0:24:290:24:31

It's not only football that's important at Waterloo Road.

0:24:310:24:35

This is a big game, a big game for the school.

0:24:350:24:38

Zack, sorry, mate, but Tariq's going to take over as scrum half

0:24:400:24:44

and you're going to drop back to the bench.

0:24:440:24:47

-That's well out of order.

-All right...calm it!

0:24:470:24:49

Decision has been made, you deal with it.

0:24:490:24:54

-Right, girls, let's talk game plan.

-Mr Diamond?

0:24:560:24:59

Wifey!

0:24:590:25:01

Tariq, listen. You're number nine now...

0:25:010:25:03

-Sian, I'm really busy.

-I just caught Madi using our credit card.

0:25:030:25:06

Look, there's three payments to a beauty clinic for 250 quid a time.

0:25:060:25:11

Our money, Jez, and she says you let her.

0:25:110:25:14

Um, I... I actually told her she could just use it in an emergency.

0:25:140:25:18

Jez, you can't buy their affections.

0:25:180:25:21

-Uh, I'm not. Look, I'll speak to her.

-No, I'll do it.

0:25:210:25:24

-I'll sort it, I promise.

-Don't worry, I'll be diplomatic.

0:25:240:25:28

No, look, you really can't.

0:25:280:25:30

The beauty clinic thing, it isn't her.

0:25:330:25:36

-It's me.

-What?

0:25:370:25:39

I've had a few...

0:25:390:25:42

I've had some work done.

0:25:450:25:47

Botox. I mean, just the eyes, nowhere else.

0:25:470:25:51

You've had Botox?

0:25:510:25:53

Simon Cowell has it done, don't he?

0:25:530:25:55

What for? You're 36.

0:25:550:25:57

I felt like I needed to. Oh, come on, Sian,

0:25:580:26:01

you and I know I have to work a bit harder in the looks department.

0:26:010:26:04

So you're saying you did this because of me?

0:26:040:26:07

-Can't you wait till you get him home, miss?

-Ronan Burley,

0:26:070:26:10

I would watch very carefully what I say if I were you.

0:26:100:26:13

Can we talk about this later? I mean... I'm under the cosh here.

0:26:130:26:17

Show no fear, look into your opponents' eyes, OK?

0:26:170:26:21

No fear whatsoever.

0:26:210:26:23

Phoenix.

0:26:260:26:27

-Mr Smith.

-All right?

0:26:280:26:31

-He should be at school.

-He's 16, surely he can make his own mind up, can't he?

0:26:310:26:35

No, he can't start working until he leaves.

0:26:350:26:37

Let's just call it work experience till then. Come on, Mr Byrne.

0:26:370:26:42

He wants to take his place in the big, wide world. What happened this morning

0:26:420:26:46

with the bike just goes to prove he's outgrown school.

0:26:460:26:49

What happened with the bike? I think we both know

0:26:490:26:52

he shouldn't even have been given the bike until he'd taken the appropriate training course.

0:26:520:26:56

Look, I agree maybe Phoenix is frustrated, but is quitting really the answer?

0:26:560:27:01

It didn't do me any harm, I've done all right

0:27:010:27:04

-for meself.

-Do you know what he scored in his last maths test?

0:27:040:27:07

He got a B, and it could easily have been an A

0:27:070:27:11

if he'd put a few more hours in.

0:27:110:27:12

Look, all I'm saying is he's a good student, he could have options.

0:27:140:27:18

-He got a B? Really?

-Yes.

0:27:180:27:20

Well, he don't get that from me.

0:27:200:27:22

But it doesn't take away from the fact that he just doesn't want to be there.

0:27:230:27:27

Well, have you asked him?

0:27:270:27:29

Phoenix, come here.

0:27:310:27:33

Mr Byrne here reckons that you don't really want to quit school?

0:27:360:27:40

Dad, honestly, I love it here.

0:27:400:27:42

Finally, I feel like I'm being taken seriously.

0:27:420:27:44

Tell you what, we'll give him a week to work it out. If it don't pan out he can come back

0:27:440:27:49

to you and your equations.

0:27:490:27:50

I don't think you understand, he doesn't have a choice.

0:27:500:27:53

-I'm his dad, I want what's best for him!

-His dad?

0:27:530:27:56

Forgive me, but you sound more like one of his classmates.

0:27:560:28:00

I want him back in school by the end of the day.

0:28:000:28:03

-Don't make me involve the authorities.

-Bye, sir.

0:28:030:28:06

I thought you said he was all right with you leaving?

0:28:080:28:11

You'd better be sure that this is what you want to do.

0:28:110:28:14

Look at him! My old mam shows more aggression when she's queuing for her pension.

0:28:190:28:25

-Well, no more changes, we can't risk it.

-Oi, come here.

0:28:250:28:27

What're you doing? I need him.

0:28:270:28:30

I think your attitude stinks, son.

0:28:300:28:33

Oi, oi, oi. Don't you laugh at me,

0:28:330:28:35

I'll rip your bloody head off, right.

0:28:350:28:37

-Um, can we calm down?

-Calm down? Do you want to win this match?

0:28:390:28:42

-If you want me off the team, I'm gone, no problem.

-Ronan, stay put.

0:28:420:28:46

Just let him go. Rugby's a man's game, Jez!

0:28:460:28:49

Get off him!

0:28:500:28:52

Set your alarm if you're going to take me on, sunshine.

0:28:520:28:55

Right, you're the captain, end of.

0:28:550:28:57

With him as captain, you're going to get slaughtered.

0:28:570:29:00

-I've made my decision.

-You don't want my help?

0:29:000:29:03

Fine. Good luck to you. You're going to bloody well need it.

0:29:030:29:07

Ken? Where you going?

0:29:090:29:11

We've still got the line-outs to go through.

0:29:110:29:13

-Ronan, where are you off to?

-I quit. Sorry, sir.

0:29:130:29:16

Circuits!

0:29:260:29:28

Aha, the legend. Ready to rock?

0:29:360:29:38

I hope you don't mind, I brought my own.

0:29:380:29:40

Cool.

0:29:400:29:41

-All right, sir?

-Better get the oxygen for Mr Chalk, just in case he...

0:29:410:29:46

Em! Right, settle down everyone, please.

0:29:460:29:49

Mr Chalk is here to learn with you all, OK,

0:29:490:29:54

and help a bit, if he can.

0:29:540:29:56

-Sir, this looks really difficult.

-Sir, can you play?

0:29:560:29:59

Well, I haven't played for a while, you know, years.

0:29:590:30:03

Aw, play something. Can you play...Rihanna?

0:30:030:30:08

# Oh, na na, what's my name... #

0:30:080:30:11

-That's probably not Mr Chalk's taste, is it?

-Oh, go on, try it.

0:30:110:30:15

I don't know that song, sorry.

0:30:150:30:17

Just play anything, sir.

0:30:170:30:19

-Go on, sir.

-Go on!

-Go on!

0:30:190:30:22

-Go on, go on!

-No way out of this, is there?

0:30:220:30:25

HE PLAYS A CHORD

0:30:290:30:31

Er, no... Um, right, here's one for you.

0:30:350:30:40

HE PLAYS HEAVY ROCK RIFF

0:30:400:30:43

HE PLAYS INCREASINGLY INTRICATE LEAD GUITAR

0:30:510:30:55

FINAL CHORD DIES AWAY

0:31:120:31:15

You're playing rugby and you can't catch?

0:31:430:31:46

That is a much smaller ball.

0:31:460:31:47

Hand-to-eye co-ordination. Some people have it, others don't.

0:31:470:31:51

Well, I'm more of a lips-to-lips co-ordination kind of guy.

0:31:510:31:54

Mr Cheese or what?

0:31:540:31:56

We're mates, remember?

0:31:580:32:00

Yeah - mates kiss.

0:32:000:32:01

Look, I don't know if I'm feeling this whole mates thing.

0:32:030:32:06

We agreed.

0:32:060:32:08

And now I'm changing my mind.

0:32:080:32:10

I'm allowed to change my mind, aren't I?

0:32:100:32:12

Is that what you're saying, that you just want us to be mates?

0:32:140:32:17

No, I'm not saying that. Maybe we could just...

0:32:170:32:20

Not so bad, was it?

0:32:250:32:27

-We know what Ronan did.

-The scumbag.

0:32:380:32:40

What?

0:32:420:32:43

Anything we can do, just ask.

0:32:430:32:45

You don't have to put up with that, you know that, Vic.

0:32:450:32:49

HUBBUB OF VOICES

0:32:500:32:52

ECHOING VOICES GETTING LOUDER

0:32:580:33:00

I hope you've dumped him.

0:33:040:33:06

Are these shorts too tight?

0:33:160:33:19

No, you look great.

0:33:190:33:20

Is Jez excited about the match?

0:33:210:33:23

I don't know, you'd have to ask him.

0:33:230:33:26

I'm so sorry. I've just got a lot on my mind, so...

0:33:260:33:29

-Anything I can help you with?

-No.

0:33:290:33:32

I'm a good listener. Problem shared and all that?

0:33:320:33:35

I don't think you'd believe me if I told you.

0:33:350:33:37

Oh, go on, I've heard 'em all.

0:33:370:33:39

Jez has had Botox.

0:33:410:33:42

-You're joking.

-It showed up on our credit card statement.

0:33:420:33:46

-He's spent a fortune on it, Linda.

-I'm sorry, but...

0:33:460:33:50

He's a bit young to have it done, isn't he?

0:33:500:33:52

He said he did it to keep up with me. Can you believe that?

0:33:520:33:55

Well, it just shows you, men can be as sensitive about their looks as us.

0:33:550:33:59

And they all have their little secrets.

0:33:590:34:01

It's not a secret. It's just a level of narcissism

0:34:010:34:04

I didn't really expect from him, that's all.

0:34:040:34:07

TOILET FLUSHES

0:34:070:34:09

Janeece.

0:34:140:34:15

Oh, my God!

0:34:220:34:24

Michael says she's as good at keeping her mouth shut as she is at typing letters.

0:34:250:34:29

Well, you should know.

0:34:290:34:31

I mean, with you being his deputy, he can confide in you. Go on.

0:34:310:34:35

What's he really like behind that Superhead mask?

0:34:350:34:38

It's been a while since I spent any proper time with him.

0:34:380:34:42

I bet he's broken a few hearts along the way.

0:34:420:34:44

I, er, I wouldn't know. Excuse me.

0:34:440:34:46

Zack? Zack, you OK? I thought you'd be getting ready by now?

0:34:460:34:50

-Dad's booted me off the team.

-What?

0:34:500:34:52

-Why? Has he given you a reason?

-He's losing it.

0:34:520:34:54

-That Ken bloke's gone and Ronan's quit.

-Why did Ronan quit?

0:34:540:34:58

-Dunno. Think it's got something to do with him and Vicki.

-Look, your dad...

0:34:580:35:01

Um, he's under a lot of pressure today. This rugby thing,

0:35:010:35:05

-he's got to make it work.

-Whatever.

0:35:050:35:07

People are saying you've hit Vicki.

0:35:130:35:15

Well, is it true? Ronan, is it true?

0:35:180:35:21

It's none of your business.

0:35:210:35:22

It's none of anyone's business, so keep this out!

0:35:220:35:25

I'd like a word, Ronan!

0:35:250:35:27

What for?

0:35:270:35:28

I think that's obvious, don't you?

0:35:280:35:31

-Miss, you wanted to see me?

-We're going to sort this out.

0:35:380:35:41

-There's nothing to sort, it's between me and Vicki.

-We don't tolerate violence in this school.

0:35:410:35:46

Ronan, we should just explain.

0:35:460:35:48

So it's true, then. Why would he do that, though?

0:35:550:35:58

-Dunno, mate.

-Yes, boys, are you all set for the match in a bit?

0:35:580:36:01

-I was just looking for Mr Diamond, has anyone seen him?

-Er, last seen having a row with the missus.

0:36:010:36:06

Oh, well, you know why that is, don't you?

0:36:060:36:09

He's had Botox and he's spent an absolute fortune on it.

0:36:090:36:12

No!

0:36:120:36:14

That's good, that's a D-chord.

0:36:210:36:23

BELL RINGS

0:36:230:36:25

-Wicked.

-OK, folks, same time tomorrow.

-Thanks, sir.

0:36:250:36:28

Well, well, well, I had no idea you were so good.

0:36:360:36:40

Years spent on me own in me bedroom, the original William No-mates.

0:36:400:36:44

A bit more wallowing there.

0:36:440:36:45

I'm sorry if I'm not dancing up and down the corridors.

0:36:450:36:48

I'm going to be on beta-blockers for the rest of my life.

0:36:480:36:51

Oh, come on, this isn't you.

0:36:510:36:55

You're not a naturally morose person.

0:36:550:36:57

Yeah, right.

0:36:570:36:58

Right, I'm going to be selfish here, OK? I need the old Chalky back.

0:36:580:37:03

Preferably the one who plays guitar better than I do.

0:37:030:37:07

See you later.

0:37:070:37:08

Violence against women is never justified.

0:37:130:37:16

It's not Ronan.

0:37:160:37:17

Come on, Vic.

0:37:170:37:19

Look, he didn't hit me. I hit him.

0:37:190:37:22

He would never hit me, never.

0:37:240:37:26

Look, I understand you want to protect him.

0:37:260:37:30

No! I hit him.

0:37:300:37:32

Maybe I should talk to you separately.

0:37:340:37:37

You must be under a lot of pressure, here.

0:37:370:37:39

-Yes, but not by him, if that's what you mean.

-The only problem here

0:37:390:37:42

is people with big gobs who don't know anything.

0:37:420:37:45

Look, thanks, Miss, thanks for trying to help,

0:37:450:37:49

but you're just jumping to conclusions.

0:37:490:37:51

Me and Ronan are absolutely fine.

0:37:520:37:55

Right, you lot, go and get ready.

0:38:010:38:04

Good luck, boys.

0:38:040:38:05

Er, what're you two playing at?

0:38:080:38:11

Takes years off you, eh, sir?

0:38:110:38:12

Good for the skin.

0:38:120:38:14

Yeah, all right, shut it, the lot of you.

0:38:140:38:16

See you on the pitch in five minutes.

0:38:160:38:18

Everything's just getting to me.

0:38:250:38:29

I'm scared of failing... scared of letting everyone down.

0:38:290:38:32

It's all these expectations... like you, Mrs Diamond, Mr Byrne...

0:38:340:38:38

"Oh, Vicki's our top student", pictures in the Gazette.

0:38:380:38:42

Yeah, but you hit me.

0:38:440:38:46

I know you're under pressure, but I don't know what to do.

0:38:460:38:51

I don't either.

0:38:510:38:52

Do you want me to stop this?

0:38:550:38:57

No... I want you to keep doing it.

0:38:570:39:01

I don't want people thinking that you hit me.

0:39:080:39:12

I'll deal with it, don't worry.

0:39:120:39:14

I'm going to go and finish some work...

0:39:140:39:17

I'll meet you at the gates, yeah?

0:39:170:39:19

Ronan, did you hit Vicki?

0:39:210:39:23

Look, I've heard the rumours, but I need to hear it from you.

0:39:230:39:27

Well, then there's no reason you can't be playing then, is there?

0:39:270:39:30

Look, if you're not out there, we're going to get hammered, simple as that.

0:39:300:39:33

Look, it's up to you, but if you do, I'll be there, cheering you on.

0:39:330:39:38

Well, there you are, I mean, she obviously wants you to play. Look at me.

0:39:430:39:47

Everyone's going to have a go about the Botox but I don't care.

0:39:470:39:50

-Botox?

-Yeah, I had a bit...

0:39:500:39:53

Look, what I'm trying to say is that it's water off a duck's back.

0:39:530:39:57

This isn't the same as people knowing you've had...Botox.

0:39:570:40:02

Ronan. I need you.

0:40:020:40:04

You've got ten minutes until kick off.

0:40:070:40:10

No, I haven't had a chance to work it out yet.

0:40:110:40:15

Five minutes! You're joking me!

0:40:150:40:18

Oh, yeah, all right, OK.

0:40:180:40:20

Was that school?

0:40:200:40:21

No, and why aren't you working?

0:40:210:40:23

There's nothing to do. What's the problem?

0:40:230:40:26

I've got five minutes to tell the supplier how much stone to send,

0:40:260:40:30

but some daft old sod's done the measuring in old money -

0:40:300:40:33

he's done it in yards instead of metres.

0:40:330:40:35

It's well easy to convert, we do it in maths all the time.

0:40:350:40:38

Can you do it?

0:40:380:40:39

Yeah, have you got a pencil?

0:40:390:40:42

# My love was always real My intention always pure

0:40:440:40:47

Whatever people tell ya They'll never love you more

0:40:470:40:51

I wish I'd known to love you right before, and that's the score

0:40:510:40:54

Now, whatever's come to pass Please be sure

0:40:540:40:58

My love was always real My intention always pure... #

0:40:580:41:01

-Are you sure this is right?

-Yeah.

0:41:010:41:04

Yeah, hiya, mate.

0:41:100:41:12

It's me again. Right, I've got it. It's 64 cubic meters.

0:41:120:41:17

Yeah, nice one.

0:41:190:41:20

Hey, some impressive stuff going on there, son.

0:41:220:41:25

-I know.

-Back to school.

0:41:250:41:26

What?

0:41:260:41:28

No wonder that headmaster come here to fetch you back.

0:41:280:41:32

I like it here. You said I could stay.

0:41:320:41:34

No, that Mr Byrne was right, you don't belong here on a building site,

0:41:340:41:37

-especially now I know my son's a genius.

-Dad!

-Phoenix!

0:41:370:41:41

You've been here five minutes and you're bored out your mind.

0:41:410:41:44

No, you're going back and you're leaving that bike here

0:41:440:41:47

and all, I'll ride it home for you, the lads could do with a laugh.

0:41:470:41:50

Come on.

0:41:500:41:52

CHANTING: Who are ya? Who are ya?

0:41:570:42:00

Well, good luck, lads. And you. Looks like you're going to need it.

0:42:050:42:09

Right, boys, this is it.

0:42:110:42:12

We keep our shape, keep our discipline and remember...

0:42:120:42:15

beat your opposite number.

0:42:150:42:17

Yeah, what's he doing here?

0:42:170:42:18

I ain't playing with him.

0:42:180:42:20

You'll do as you're told, or you can go and tell Mr Byrne why you're prepared to let the school down.

0:42:200:42:25

Didn't expect to hear you defending women's rights.

0:42:250:42:27

Anyone laid a finger on my sis, I'd kill 'em.

0:42:270:42:31

Ronan, you're full back. Alex, subs bench for you, mate.

0:42:310:42:34

Oh, that's a shame, innit?

0:42:340:42:37

Here. Go.

0:42:370:42:38

This is a waste of time. They don't want me here.

0:42:400:42:42

Look, forget about this lot, you're on.

0:42:420:42:46

-You OK?

-Couldn't be better.

0:42:530:42:55

I bet you wish you were playing with girls, don't you, Ronan?!

0:42:550:42:59

-Oh, shut up!

-Oh, yeah, and you're going to make me, are you?

0:42:590:43:03

What happens between Vicki and Ronan is their business,

0:43:030:43:06

no-one elses.

0:43:060:43:08

Says the girl that fancies Ronan.

0:43:080:43:11

-Yeah, sounds good to me.

-Leave him alone!

-Look, I don't know what you've heard, yeah, but I'd never touch Vicki!

-Stop it!

0:44:330:44:37

Jeremy, your team's imploding.

0:44:370:44:39

Cut it out, or I'll sin-bin the two of you, stop it!!

0:44:390:44:42

He didn't do anything! Stop it!!

0:44:420:44:44

-Vicki, you need to get off the pitch.

-Just leave it, Vicki, yeah?

0:44:440:44:49

Ronan didn't do anything. He didn't hit me, I hit him!

0:44:490:44:52

-God, you lot are worse than them.

-This isn't the time. Jez?

0:44:530:44:55

Vicki, off the pitch, now.

0:44:550:44:57

No, not till they know the truth...

0:44:570:45:00

not till everyone knows the truth.

0:45:000:45:02

Look, just tell them -

0:45:060:45:07

I'm not having you taking the blame for something I did.

0:45:070:45:10

We don't have to justify ourselves to this lot.

0:45:100:45:13

-Look, will you just tell 'em, we're getting hammered here!

-Please, Ronan, just tell them.

0:45:130:45:17

I didn't hit Vicki, she's telling the truth.

0:45:170:45:20

Well, how did she get the bruise then?

0:45:200:45:22

I hit it on a shelf... he didn't do anything.

0:45:220:45:26

I'm sorry.

0:45:280:45:29

Right, come on. Let's play rugby.

0:45:290:45:32

0:45:580:46:02

Apology accepted. You've made the right decision, you know that?

0:46:020:46:06

Good, go and watch the game.

0:46:070:46:10

Well, whatever you said worked.

0:46:100:46:14

Ah, it didn't take much. He's a good father, really,

0:46:140:46:17

Jeremy...a word.

0:48:530:48:55

Give me one reason why I shouldn't sack you now.

0:48:590:49:02

I just watched you disallow a perfectly good try.

0:49:020:49:06

It looked out to me. We just won the game!

0:49:060:49:08

-You saw the buzz it gave the boys.

-I want to build a culture of success,

0:49:080:49:12

-not dishonesty. If you can't tell the difference...

-Great performance, just what the school needs.

0:49:120:49:17

-We do not need a reputation for cheating.

-What? Who cheated?

0:49:170:49:21

Jeremy did.

0:49:210:49:22

Please tell me he's wrong?

0:49:260:49:28

Look, I just gave us the benefit of the doubt, that's all.

0:49:280:49:32

What is wrong with you?

0:49:320:49:33

Oh, come on, Sian... it's not that big a deal, is it?

0:49:330:49:36

-You've made us look like idiots, Jeremy.

-Played, sir.

0:49:360:49:40

Nice one, sir.

Wait for me, yeah?

Ronan!

0:49:540:49:56

I'm sorry but I couldn't just stand there and let you take the blame.

0:50:020:50:05

I said I'd deal with it.

0:50:050:50:08

Can we just go home?

0:50:080:50:09

I'm going out round town tonight.

0:50:090:50:12

Is she going?

0:50:120:50:15

-I'll see you later.

-Ronan?

0:50:150:50:17

Yes. We're taking the fruit to the canteen, then we're going out.

0:50:180:50:22

Well, don't bother coming home! Look, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to do that... I just...

0:50:220:50:27

I'm sorry, OK?

0:50:270:50:28

This isn't going to work.

0:50:280:50:31

No, I said I'm sorry...

0:50:310:50:32

Can we just go home? Please don't do this to me, please.

0:50:320:50:35

I'm not coming back tonight, yeah?

0:50:350:50:37

Go then... I don't care if you never come home!

0:50:400:50:43

Scout! Phoenix. I just wanted to say

0:50:520:50:55

I was really impressed with your playing earlier on,

0:50:550:50:57

it's got good technique.

0:50:570:50:59

Not as good as you, sir.

0:50:590:51:00

Yeah, well, you know...

0:51:000:51:02

Listen,

0:51:020:51:03

if you wanted any extra lessons, as long as Mr Wilding's OK with it,

0:51:030:51:08

then I'm happy to help.

0:51:080:51:09

Serious?! Course!

0:51:090:51:11

Oh, great. Well, we'll start tomorrow then, shall we?

0:51:110:51:14

Tell Denzil and Emily they're welcome as well.

0:51:140:51:17

Oh, cheers, sir, see you later.

0:51:170:51:19

Dad, Dad, what's going on?

0:51:240:51:27

Everyone's saying you cheated.

0:51:270:51:29

Just leave my credit card alone, all right?

0:51:290:51:31

-Well, is it true?

-Looks like we've got nothing to celebrate.

0:51:310:51:33

Ronan, can I have a word, please?

0:51:360:51:39

Just give us a minute.

0:51:390:51:42

I owe you an apology.

0:51:430:51:45

I'm sorry I didn't believe you and Vicki.

0:51:450:51:48

-It's OK, miss.

-No, it's not. I jumped to conclusions.

0:51:480:51:50

Are you OK?

0:51:500:51:52

Well, you know where I am. We can help you...

0:51:520:51:57

both of you, there's counselling and all sorts.

0:51:570:52:00

-We're fine, but thanks, miss.

-And Vicki? Is she all right?

0:52:000:52:03

What she did was unacceptable but I'm still worried about her.

0:52:030:52:07

Keep an eye on her, Ronan. She's not as tough as she makes out.

0:52:070:52:10

-What were your job like?

-It were all right...

0:52:180:52:20

I'm glad my dad changed his mind and that.

0:52:200:52:23

It's always good to have choices, innit?

0:52:230:52:25

Least you don't have to work. I've got a job interview later.

0:52:250:52:28

Why don't you concentrate on your exams? You're dead clever, you.

0:52:280:52:32

I need it. It keeps me away from my mum, don't it?

0:52:320:52:35

-That bad?

-Yeah.

0:52:350:52:36

You could come round after... we're ordering pizza.

0:52:360:52:39

-My dad's paying.

-Great! Not that your dad's paying...but, yeah...cool.

0:52:390:52:45

Laters, then.

0:52:470:52:49

# Well, let me tell you something All that glitters ain't gold

0:52:540:52:58

# It's been a long old trouble Long old troublesome road

0:52:580:53:03

# And I'm looking for somebody come and help me carry this load... #

0:53:030:53:08

-Try some spicy chicken, Dad.

-All right.

-Oi! Don't eat all of it!

0:53:090:53:13

All right, birthday boy, I'll save you the last slice, I promise.

0:53:130:53:16

Well, brain box, does it feel good to be back at school?

0:53:160:53:19

Yeah, I guess. I'm thinking of taking that maths A-level.

0:53:190:53:23

I got an A in art today.

0:53:230:53:25

Wow, keep this up, we'll make pizza night a monthly treat.

0:53:250:53:28

-Hey, hurry up, Scout, before there's nothing left.

-Thanks.

0:53:280:53:33

I got you a present.

0:53:350:53:37

It's nothing, right? I made it in textiles.

0:53:370:53:39

But you've got to be safe, haven't you?

0:53:390:53:41

Cheers.

0:53:410:53:43

Well, go on soft lad... give her a kiss.

0:53:450:53:47

Did you apologise to Zack?

0:53:590:54:02

Erm, he'd already gone, but I will.

0:54:020:54:04

I'm sorry if I upset people today but I did what I thought was right.

0:54:050:54:09

You know, I'm sorry if I'm not perfect. Can we just go home

0:54:090:54:12

and talk about this there?

0:54:120:54:14

No. You go, I'm staying.

0:54:140:54:17

Thanks for today, Matt. Sorry about being such a pain.

0:54:230:54:28

From now on, if I see something or want something,

0:54:280:54:31

I'm just going to go for it.

0:54:310:54:33

Well, I will drink to that. Cheers.

0:54:330:54:35

So. Is it true? Jez the cheat?

0:54:370:54:39

No! No, I'd call it bias.

0:54:390:54:42

What's the difference?

0:54:420:54:44

Well, bias is more about... Well, it's about...

0:54:440:54:47

Oh, we won - who cares?

0:54:470:54:51

Tom! You in?

0:54:510:54:53

Come on.

0:54:530:54:55

-You OK?

-I'm fine.

0:54:580:55:00

Well, you must be able to see it now.

0:55:000:55:03

He couldn't handle it today. He's let everyone down.

0:55:030:55:06

And you're delighted about that, aren't you?

0:55:060:55:09

No, I wanted more than anyone for this to be successful.

0:55:090:55:12

You gave him an impossible task, Michael,

0:55:120:55:14

-don't think I don't know what you did.

-Sian, don't be ridiculous.

0:55:140:55:17

So quick to point out Jez's failings. Perhaps you should turn that perception on yourself.

0:55:170:55:22

-You're overreacting.

-Again?

-Oh, aren't you going to join us?

-No. I have to go.

0:55:220:55:27

Drink?

0:55:290:55:30

Yeah, why not?

0:55:300:55:32

Ronan?

0:55:380:55:39

Yeah, it's me. Sorry, I should've phoned.

0:55:390:55:42

I thought you weren't coming back?

0:55:420:55:45

Yeah, well, that was all talk, wasn't it?

0:55:450:55:47

I'm going to make myself something to eat.

0:55:490:55:52

I've been looking at stress management websites all evening.

0:55:520:55:56

Good.

0:55:560:55:58

I never meant to...

0:55:590:56:02

I'm really sorry about what I put you through today.

0:56:020:56:05

I don't know what you want any more, Vicki.

0:56:070:56:10

I want you, I want us.

0:56:100:56:13

You don't trust me.

0:56:140:56:16

Yeah, I do. You're all I've got, course I trust you.

0:56:160:56:18

And Madi?

0:56:200:56:22

Just seeing you two together... you...you just looked dead close.

0:56:250:56:29

Madi's a mate. She can help me run the business,

0:56:290:56:32

keep this place going.

0:56:320:56:33

You know I would help you if I had the time.

0:56:340:56:38

I know. We'll be fine. You hungry?

0:56:380:56:42

I didn't want to say anything in front of the others,

0:56:550:56:58

but today's match was a brilliant idea of yours.

0:56:580:57:01

Thank you, but you should've said something.

0:57:010:57:04

I don't have a problem being praised in public.

0:57:040:57:07

No, I mean it!

0:57:070:57:08

I know what Jez did was wrong, but that whole rugby thing,

0:57:080:57:11

I mean, it just shows what vision you have for the place.

0:57:110:57:14

We'll get there.

0:57:140:57:15

Well, this is me.

0:57:170:57:21

Look, I'm going to come right out with this.

0:57:210:57:24

I've always found you very attractive.

0:57:240:57:26

Why don't you come back to mine tonight?

0:57:310:57:34

I promise you won't be disappointed.

0:57:340:57:37

Hello, handsome. Last time I saw you, you were wearing considerably less.

0:57:580:58:03

What's Ronan playing at? She battered him, he's back for more.

0:58:030:58:07

What, is she hypnotising him as well or something?

0:58:070:58:09

You're actually quite scared of me, aren't you?

0:58:090:58:11

-You've dealt drugs before, haven't you? Are you at it again?

-I'm not!

0:58:110:58:16

My head's pounding.

0:58:160:58:17

Don't you dare.

0:58:180:58:20

Oh, man, you're asking for it... again!

0:58:220:58:25

What did you say?

0:58:250:58:27

WHAT DID YOU SAY?!!
