2:33:252:33:27

-Always the last to leave.

-See you later, ladies.

2:33:272:33:30

Sorry, I was talking with Lizzy.

2:33:302:33:32

Arthur, have you been smoking? Look, what have I told you before?

2:33:322:33:36

Look at the signs. They say no smoking.

2:33:362:33:39

It's hard enough keeping this place open as it is.

2:33:392:33:41

Smoke out...side.

2:34:122:34:16

# Aaah! Aaah! #

2:34:162:34:20

-I know you like it.

-Aaah!

2:34:202:34:22

SHE WHEEZES

2:34:222:34:25

OK. Now get some rest, otherwise you'll be a nightmare tomorrow, OK?

2:34:342:34:38

All right. You going to give me a kiss? Might not wake up tomorrow.

2:34:382:34:42

-Five pages, OK? Then bye-bye.

-Bye-bye.

2:34:522:34:56

TV ON

2:34:582:35:00

-Is he here?

-He's in the pit.

2:35:072:35:10

Yo. Your dad's here.

2:35:102:35:12

-What you doing?

-You OK? Fixing this.

2:35:122:35:14

-Steering shaft's gone.

-I need you to do something for me.

2:35:142:35:17

Hang on. Steven, where's the big wrench from in here? I was using it.

2:35:172:35:21

Your mum wants you to take her to the centre tonight.

2:35:212:35:24

-Well, where are you?

-It's Thursday. My night with the lads.

2:35:242:35:27

Couldn't you have told me earlier? It's four o'clock.

2:35:272:35:29

Well, if you don't want to do it, it's OK. I don't...

2:35:292:35:31

I don't mind doing it. Just tell me earlier.

2:35:312:35:33

I've got Jennifer. It's half term. I'll have to bring her.

2:35:332:35:36

You need to pick her up by seven

2:35:362:35:37

and you'll need to bring her home, an' all.

2:35:372:35:39

-OK. How is she?

-Well, if you saw her, you'd know.

2:35:392:35:43

-We do have to have a name, don't we?

-Have we got a name?

2:35:522:35:54

Erm, well, I had to put a name forward so I put...

2:35:542:35:57

You're not going to like this.

2:35:572:35:58

-Why?

-You're not going to like this.

2:35:582:36:00

The OAP'Z.

2:36:002:36:02

-Old Age Pensionerz.

-Oh, no.

2:36:022:36:04

With a Z, though, at the end, to make it street.

2:36:042:36:06

What are we... What are we going to sing?

2:36:062:36:08

LAUGHTER

2:36:082:36:09

Oh, hello, Arthur.

2:36:092:36:10

- What are you lot doing here? - Talking about you.

2:36:102:36:13

-Ha-bloody-ha.

-We're doing an audition.

2:36:132:36:15

Major competition. We're going to be singing.

2:36:152:36:18

-Better get some folks who can sing, eh?

-Oh...

2:36:182:36:20

MARION BLOWS RASPBERRY

2:36:202:36:21

LAUGHTER

2:36:212:36:23

-You should be resting.

-I'm all right.

2:36:232:36:26

Well, don't blame me if she's struggling later.

2:36:262:36:28

-Who's she, the cat's mother?

-Right, well, I'll take these out.

2:36:282:36:32

Don't you, don't you worry. He's a...a puffed-up pigeon.

2:36:322:36:37

WATER RUNNING

2:36:372:36:39

You could be a bit more positive, Arthur.

2:36:442:36:47

We haven't sung in front of anyone before

2:36:472:36:49

and Marion could use a little bit of encouragement.

2:36:492:36:51

She'll get laughed at, singing that nonsense.

2:36:512:36:54

So what if people laugh at us? That's their problem.

2:36:542:36:57

I just don't want her hopes getting built up

2:36:592:37:02

so that she's let down if you don't get picked.

2:37:022:37:05

It's not about winning or losing. That's not why we're doing it.

2:37:052:37:09

Then why are you doing it?

2:37:092:37:11

When you can be bothered to come along and watch

2:37:122:37:14

and look at the faces of Marion and the others,

2:37:142:37:17

then ask that question again.

2:37:172:37:20

All right. Come, then, ladies, if you want a lift home.

2:37:202:37:22

Oh, now don't you say a word. He's not even late yet.

2:37:282:37:31

-It's pointless to ask him to do anything.

-Hello!

2:37:312:37:35

-Hey, Grandma.

-Hello, pet.

2:37:362:37:39

I'm going to make a move. Your mum has to be there by seven.

2:37:392:37:42

She's got half an hour yet.

2:37:422:37:44

-Hello, Grandad.

-Hello, Funny-fer.

2:37:442:37:47

-SHE CHUCKLES I'm off, then.

-Hm.

2:37:472:37:49

CHATTER

2:37:512:37:53

Hello, my favourite people in the whole world.

2:37:552:37:58

Before we start, can I just have your attention, please?

2:37:582:38:01

-Quickly, quickly, ladies.

-Oh, sorry!

2:38:032:38:05

Thank you very much.

2:38:062:38:08

So, as some of you can see,

2:38:082:38:10

I have entered us into a very lovely choir competition.

2:38:102:38:15

SOME GASPS

2:38:152:38:16

-Can we win something?

-Well, yeah, maybe.

2:38:162:38:19

But I'd just be happy if we took part, to be honest.

2:38:192:38:21

-What will we have to do?

-We have to perform in front of a judge.

2:38:212:38:24

If he thinks we're any good, he'll enter us into the main competition.

2:38:242:38:27

EXCITED CHATTER

2:38:272:38:30

Oh, come on, it's great. We'll knock 'em dead.

2:38:302:38:33

What we'll do is, I'll start thinking of some music

2:38:332:38:35

and everyone take one of these flyers home

2:38:352:38:38

and prepare for lots of practice.

2:38:382:38:41

Prepare for battle, more like! LAUGHTER

2:38:412:38:44

Nice attitude, Cheryl.

2:38:442:38:46

LAUGHTER

2:38:462:38:47

What about it?

2:38:482:38:50

Go on, then.

2:38:522:38:53

You got me this time.

2:38:552:38:56

-If you can't enjoy yourself on your...

-Checkmate.

2:38:562:38:59

# Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide

2:38:592:39:02

# Doo-doo-doo-doo, doe-doe Nowhere to run to, no

2:39:022:39:06

# Nowhere to run to Nowhere to hide

2:39:062:39:10

# Doo-doo-doo-doo, doe-doe Nowhere to run to, no

2:39:102:39:14

# Nowhere to run to, baby

2:39:142:39:16

# Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide... #

2:39:162:39:19

Marion! Marion!

2:39:192:39:22

It must be very boring for you guys, losing all the time.

2:39:222:39:25

Three games you've won. We've been playing all night.

2:39:252:39:27

-I'll leave you guys to it.

-Thanks for getting him.

2:39:552:39:59

-If there's anything I can do...

-Haven't you done enough, you lot?

2:39:592:40:02

Sorry.

2:40:042:40:06

MONITOR BEEPING

2:40:092:40:12

-Is she asleep?

-Yeah.

2:40:122:40:14

Give Grandma a kiss and we'll wait outside for Grandad.

2:40:142:40:17

OK.

2:40:172:40:18

You OK?

2:40:442:40:45

Steady as she goes.

2:40:472:40:49

You warm?

2:41:332:41:35

I've got two blankets over me. Well, at least I think I have.

2:41:352:41:39

Oh, no, it's one folded over. I thought there was two.

2:41:392:41:43

-Hello, Doctor.

-Sorry to keep you waiting.

2:41:482:41:50

You've been prodded and poked quite a bit this last week, Mrs Harris.

2:41:562:42:00

Hm. It's all in a good cause.

2:42:002:42:03

It's come back, hasn't it?

2:42:052:42:07

Well, it seems that unfortunately that is the case.

2:42:072:42:11

-Does it mean more chemo?

-That's down to Marion.

2:42:112:42:15

We could try a course of aggressive therapy.

2:42:152:42:18

But...it's not pleasant and I believe at best

2:42:182:42:22

it would only slow the process down.

2:42:222:42:25

Chips and ice cream, Marion.

2:42:282:42:30

Someone told me once, when there's nothing you can do,

2:42:322:42:34

chips and ice cream.

2:42:342:42:36

Go home and have as much as you want.

2:42:382:42:40

SHE WHISPERS

2:42:482:42:51

She likes ice cream.

2:42:572:42:59

These flowers. Flowers and cards.

2:43:052:43:08

Here we go. Here...we go.

2:43:082:43:11

-Done it.

-SHE LAUGHS

2:43:112:43:13

Terrific.

2:43:132:43:15

I made this one, but I haven't got an envelope.

2:43:152:43:18

Hm.

2:43:202:43:21

"To Gran, get well as soon as you can.

2:43:242:43:27

"Love, Jennifer. Kiss, kiss, kiss."

2:43:272:43:31

Ooh, it's lovely. Thank you.

2:43:312:43:34

She seems OK, in good spirits.

2:43:392:43:43

Yeah. She's got a couple of months.

2:43:432:43:45

You couldn't have prepared me a bit for that news, then?

2:43:502:43:54

I have to deal with it.

2:43:542:43:55

Jen gave me this card.

2:44:032:44:05

-Why don't you go and show Grandad?

-OK, then.

2:44:072:44:10

I don't know who half those people are.

2:44:262:44:28

That's what you get for being popular.

2:44:282:44:30

He told you, then?

2:44:322:44:33

-Yeah.

-Not one for breaking news gently, is he?

2:44:352:44:39

Don't get too cross with him. He's upset.

2:44:392:44:42

So am I, Mum.

2:44:422:44:44

You promise me you're going to help him. Especially after.

2:44:442:44:48

You're going to come round and see him. Don't let him become a recluse.

2:44:482:44:51

-You haven't gone yet.

-No, I haven't.

2:44:512:44:55

Did you miss me?

2:45:012:45:03

I've been seeing you twice every day.

2:45:032:45:05

Not at home, though.

2:45:052:45:08

OK, time for you to go to sleep.

2:45:082:45:11

I'm waiting for you to come in, keep me warm.

2:45:112:45:15

I can do that.

2:45:152:45:16

I am a bit scared.

2:45:342:45:36

Don't worry.

2:45:362:45:38

I'll take care of you.

2:45:392:45:41

James cried today.

2:45:432:45:46

Well, he had to know, didn't he?

2:45:462:45:48

-Arthur!

-What do you mean?

2:45:482:45:51

Don't take it out on him.

2:45:512:45:53

HE SIGHS

2:45:552:45:57

I'm sorry.

2:45:572:45:58

-I'll have a chat with him tomorrow.

-Good boy.

2:46:002:46:03

Love you, Arthur.

2:46:082:46:11

I love you too, sweetheart.

2:46:112:46:12

I did miss you.

2:46:172:46:18

I know.

2:46:212:46:22

DISTANT MUSIC

2:46:332:46:36

SINGING

2:46:362:46:37

What the...?

2:46:372:46:39

What are they bloody doing?

2:46:412:46:42

Why won't they leave you alone?

2:46:422:46:44

-Open the window. I want to see.

-Don't they know what time it is?

2:46:442:46:48

# I'd find myself drowning in my own tears

2:46:482:46:53

# Whoa-oh!

2:46:532:46:56

# You are the sunshine of my life

2:46:562:47:00

# That's why I'll always be around

2:47:032:47:08

# You are the apple of my eye

2:47:102:47:14

# Forever you'll stay in my heart. #

2:47:172:47:23

Hurray!

2:47:252:47:27

I want to go outside.

2:47:272:47:29

-Let's get you back into bed.

-No, I want to go and see them.

2:47:292:47:32

-You're not going outside.

-I want to go outside!

2:47:322:47:34

You're not well enough for this and they should know that.

2:47:342:47:37

See what you've done? See what's happened?

2:47:372:47:39

You're a bunch of flaming nuisances! Now bugger off!

2:47:392:47:42

You can't make a show of yourself like that.

2:47:442:47:46

They're my friends. They don't care what I look like.

2:47:462:47:48

Neither do I. I want to go and see them!

2:47:482:47:50

You haven't got the energy to stand up

2:47:502:47:52

and you want to prance around outside.

2:47:522:47:54

They're my friends and I'm going to see them!

2:47:542:47:56

-You'll only last five seconds!

-I want to speak to them!

2:47:562:47:58

-We're going to get you back into bed.

-No, we're not.

2:47:582:48:01

-What on earth is going on here?

-I want him out of this room.

2:48:012:48:04

I want him out of this room! Get him out!

2:48:042:48:06

She's getting herself worked up.

2:48:062:48:08

Just leave her with me for a moment, please, Mr Harris.

2:48:082:48:10

No, she's my wife and I'm taking care of her.

2:48:102:48:12

Mr Harris, I think it best you go for a short walk,

2:48:122:48:15

take some time to calm down.

2:48:152:48:17

-I'll see you tomorrow, Marion.

-Thank you, dear.

2:48:462:48:48

Thanks so much for today.

2:48:482:48:50

-You're a pig.

-I know.

2:49:002:49:02

HE SNORTS

2:49:022:49:03

You were rude to my friends.

2:49:032:49:06

I'm trying to look after you.

2:49:062:49:08

You are going to apologise to everyone.

2:49:082:49:11

And you will take me to singing.

2:49:122:49:15

If you don't, I will not utter a single word to you until you do.

2:49:182:49:22

That'll fall in if you dunk it too long.

2:49:382:49:40

I like it, actually, a bit of peace and quiet.

2:49:452:49:49

It's a blessing.

2:49:492:49:51

Do you want me to dry your hair?

2:49:512:49:53

You can nod your bloody head, you know. That's not speaking.

2:49:552:49:57

Do you want me to do anything?

2:50:002:50:01

What was that?

2:50:142:50:16

OK. I'll take you to bloody singing.

2:50:362:50:40

You want to make a fool of yourself, that's down to you.

2:50:422:50:45

And apologise?

2:50:452:50:46

CHATTER

2:50:482:50:51

Oh, look! Marion!

2:50:512:50:54

It's Marion. Look.

2:50:542:50:55

Hello.

2:50:572:50:58

-I'm so glad.

-Hello.

2:50:582:51:00

-Hello, hello, hello. Hello, Lizzy.

-It's good to see you.

2:51:002:51:03

Hang on. Arthur has something he wants to tell all of you.

2:51:032:51:06

Oh? Has he? How nice.

2:51:072:51:10

Marion wanted me to come and apologise to you

2:51:202:51:24

for shouting and saying what I said the other morning,

2:51:242:51:31

so...

2:51:312:51:32

There you go.

2:51:352:51:36

That's not an apology.

2:51:362:51:39

It'll do. Thank you, Arthur.

2:51:392:51:42

And he is going to go on bringing me

2:51:422:51:44

and he's going to do it without moaning,

2:51:442:51:47

and I'm going to do the audition...thing.

2:51:472:51:51

If you want me.

2:51:512:51:53

Of course we want you, Marion, as long as you're well enough.

2:51:552:51:59

I'll be well enough.

2:51:592:52:00

Brilliant. Arthur, are you going to stick around?

2:52:002:52:04

What do you think?

2:52:052:52:07

This is heavy metal. It's rock and roll.

2:52:112:52:13

It's angry. It's sexy.

2:52:132:52:16

These guys, they're proper ugly, but they get laid daily.

2:52:162:52:20

-Really?

-They have groupies.

2:52:202:52:22

You're going to have sex again.

2:52:222:52:24

So, I'm talking rough and manly.

2:52:242:52:28

So can I see that in your face?

2:52:282:52:30

A bit sexier.

2:52:322:52:34

Perfect, perfect, perfect.

2:52:342:52:36

Right, Terry, give me your rock and roll.

2:52:362:52:39

-Like this?

-No!

2:52:392:52:42

It's these two, on the outside. That's it.

2:52:422:52:45

Give me some heavy metal.

2:52:452:52:46

HE SHRIEKS

2:52:462:52:50

-GIGGLING:

-It's a good start. Right, give me your line.

2:52:502:52:53

You win some, you lose some! It's all the same to me!

2:52:532:52:57

All right, that's enough. Don't put your back out, for God's sake.

2:52:572:53:00

-Nice apology!

-Oh, I apologise like birds sing.

2:53:052:53:08

-What the hell you got in your ear?

-It's for practice.

2:53:122:53:15

I'll be talking to myself from now on, then.

2:53:152:53:17

What?

2:53:172:53:18

Bye.

2:53:192:53:20

Oi.

2:53:272:53:29

-None of your business.

-What is it?

2:53:292:53:32

I'm going to do a solo in that audition thing.

2:53:332:53:36

-On your own? In front of people?

-That's what a solo is, isn't it?

2:53:362:53:39

Why have they gone and given you that, then?

2:53:402:53:43

Because if we do get selected,

2:53:432:53:45

I might not be around when it comes to sing in the competition.

2:53:452:53:48

I'll let you get on with it, then, but bed in ten,

2:53:532:53:57

if you're even listening.

2:53:572:53:59

-What will I do about tonight?

-What do you mean?

2:54:082:54:10

My singing.

2:54:102:54:13

Well, you can't go. You can hardly sit up.

2:54:132:54:16

Will you go?

2:54:162:54:17

Please. It's important for me.

2:54:192:54:21

OK. Anything to make you feel better.

2:54:212:54:24

OK. Keep an open mind when listening to this song.

2:54:342:54:38

And, yes, it is what they're talking about.

2:54:382:54:41

# Spinderella, cut it up one time

2:54:432:54:45

# Ooh, oh!

2:54:452:54:49

# Uh-huh... #

2:54:492:54:52

It's got a nice little groove to it.

2:54:522:54:54

-Yeah, this is good.

-Yeah, I like this.

2:54:542:54:58

# Uh-huh, oh!

2:54:582:55:01

# Come on Let's talk about sex, baby... #

2:55:012:55:03

GASPS

2:55:032:55:05

-It is all about sex.

-MURMURS

2:55:052:55:07

Why shouldn't we be talking about it?

2:55:072:55:09

Or singing about it.

2:55:092:55:11

Better than just thinking about it.

2:55:112:55:13

ALL: Oooh!

2:55:132:55:15

Ooh!

2:55:152:55:17

MUSIC CONTINUES INSIDE

2:55:182:55:22

Keep your filthy comments to yourselves, gentlemen, please.

2:55:252:55:29

Clear off.

2:55:352:55:36

OK, right.

2:55:442:55:45

-Oh, shit!

-Hello.

2:55:462:55:49

SHE GASPS

2:55:492:55:50

Arthur! You scared the hell out of me.

2:55:502:55:53

Marion is sick. She asked me to come

2:55:532:55:56

so that you could give me what she's supposed to learn.

2:55:562:55:59

I don't suppose you've got her player, have you?

2:55:592:56:01

You mean this thing? SHE SIGHS

2:56:012:56:03

All right, then, get in the car. Come on.

2:56:032:56:06

You lot are all lunatics. MUSIC PLAYS

2:56:082:56:11

What will people think when they hear you singing this?

2:56:112:56:13

It's only a song, Arthur.

2:56:132:56:15

It's about sex. Oh, dear.

2:56:152:56:18

People do still have it, you know.

2:56:182:56:19

Doesn't mean you have to sing about it.

2:56:192:56:21

So how are you coping?

2:56:242:56:26

Must be really hard for you.

2:56:272:56:28

We all care about her so much.

2:56:312:56:33

Why do you do it?

2:56:352:56:37

I can understand the oldies. They haven't got anything else.

2:56:372:56:41

But you're young. You've got everything.

2:56:412:56:44

Well, I enjoy it, of course.

2:56:442:56:47

And it's actually nice having 20 or something smiling faces

2:56:472:56:50

listening to me cos they actually care.

2:56:502:56:53

-Do you get paid for it?

-No.

2:56:532:56:56

No. No. I teach music at a school. I get paid for that.

2:56:562:57:00

What are you all dolled up for?

2:57:022:57:04

I've got a date, if you must know.

2:57:052:57:08

-With a fella?

-No, with a donkey.

2:57:082:57:11

Hm, touchy.

2:57:112:57:13

You know what you're telling her?

2:57:142:57:17

Cool.

2:57:172:57:18

Oh! Will you give her these? Everyone's got some.

2:57:202:57:22

She might need some help putting them up.

2:57:222:57:25

-Yeah.

-Will you give her my love?

2:57:252:57:27

-She was missed tonight.

-Sure.

2:57:272:57:28

Wake up.

2:57:372:57:38

Get your bloody boots off the bed. I sleep there.

2:57:382:57:41

Enjoy yourself?

2:57:532:57:54

-Enjoy what?

-The choir thing.

2:57:562:57:58

No.

2:58:002:58:02

You know how I feel about enjoying things.

2:58:022:58:04

I'll see you, then.

2:58:042:58:05

-Arthur, Marion'd like your help.

-What for?

2:58:212:58:24

She's having trouble finding the pages.

2:58:242:58:26

-Can't someone else do it?

-I'm sure someone could do it.

2:58:262:58:29

But as she might not be here much longer,

2:58:292:58:30

I thought you might like the opportunity.

2:58:302:58:32

-Get a move on. We're all waiting.

-All right, everybody.

2:58:392:58:41

Let's get on with the songs.

2:58:412:58:43

One, two, three!

2:58:432:58:45

# Let's talk about sex, baby

2:58:452:58:47

# Let's talk about you and me

2:58:472:58:50

# Let's talk about all the good things

2:58:502:58:52

# And the bad things that may be

2:58:522:58:55

# Let's talk about sex

2:58:552:58:57

# Let's talk about sex

2:58:572:59:00

# Let's talk about sex. #

2:59:002:59:02

RECORDING: # Something's got a hold on me, yeah

2:59:022:59:05

# Oh, it must be love

2:59:052:59:07

# Oh! Something's got a hold on me right now, child

2:59:072:59:11

# Oh, it must be love

2:59:112:59:13

# Let me tell you now I've got a feeling

2:59:132:59:16

# I feel so strange

2:59:162:59:18

# Everything about me seems to have changed

2:59:182:59:20

# Step by step I've got a brand-new walk... #

2:59:202:59:24

Are we the only ones doing this?

2:59:242:59:26

-# I said, oh!

-Oh! #

2:59:262:59:29

What?

2:59:292:59:30

-# Oh!

-Oh!

2:59:302:59:32

# Hey-hey, yeah! #

2:59:322:59:35

-# Let's talk about sex, baby... #

-Arthur!

2:59:352:59:38

What are you talking about?

2:59:382:59:41

Eh? Oh, just thinking.

2:59:412:59:44

About sex?

2:59:442:59:46

Ooh. I'll have a taste of that.

2:59:522:59:54

Mm. Very nice. Now we'll put a dollop in each of these.

2:59:542:59:57

-Bomb gone off in here?

-We're making cakes.

2:59:593:00:02

Did Grandad tell you he came to hear our singing?

3:00:023:00:06

-Really?

-I wouldn't call it singing.

3:00:063:00:08

-Hoppity-hop.

-Hip-hop.

3:00:083:00:11

What, rapping? Like the kids?

3:00:113:00:12

Why didn't you join in, lay some beats?

3:00:123:00:15

What, like this? Boppity, boppity, bop.

3:00:153:00:17

# Grandad's rap It's so crap! #

3:00:173:00:20

-Who taught you that word?

-Grandma.

3:00:203:00:22

-Said she keeps having to crap.

-Really, Mum?!

3:00:223:00:25

-SHE LAUGHS

-Mum!

3:00:253:00:27

I don't know what's wrong with you lot. Bloody crackers.

3:00:273:00:30

-It's true. I'm just going to...

-You OK?

3:00:303:00:33

Mm-hm. Yeah, I'm OK.

3:00:333:00:35

-Go on.

-I'll beatbox the music.

3:00:443:00:46

-# You know I'm born to lose

-Ahhh-ahhh!

3:01:133:01:15

-# And gambling is for fools

-Ahhh-ahhh!

3:01:153:01:17

-# But that's the way I like it, baby

-Ahhh-ahhh!

3:01:173:01:19

-# I don't wanna live forever

-Ahhh-ahhh! #

3:01:193:01:22

No! No, no, no!

3:01:223:01:25

SHE INHALES DEEPLY

3:01:253:01:27

It just needs more metal.

3:01:273:01:29

Motorhead would be bursting into tears right now

3:01:293:01:32

if they heard that piano.

3:01:323:01:34

You guys are brilliant, though. I mean, you sound like rock thunder.

3:01:343:01:38

But it just sounds a bit pants on the piano.

3:01:383:01:41

-You want me to bring my bass?

-That is a brilliant idea. Bring it.

3:01:413:01:45

-Anyone else play anything?

-I used to play football.

3:01:453:01:48

It's not really an instrument, is it?

3:01:483:01:51

I played drums when I was in the Guides.

3:01:513:01:54

That's perfect.

3:01:543:01:56

I play recorder.

3:01:563:01:57

-Recorder's not really rock and roll.

-It is when I play.

3:01:573:02:02

I'm sure it is, Cheryl.

3:02:023:02:04

Drums, bass...

3:02:043:02:05

I know a naughty guitarist.

3:02:073:02:08

MURMURING

3:02:083:02:11

He's far too young for me.

3:02:113:02:13

I've got to go, then?

3:02:133:02:14

Oh, yes, you bloody well have.

3:02:143:02:16

And you've got to let James know as well. I want you all there.

3:02:163:02:19

-And Jennifer.

-Yes.

3:02:193:02:21

Yes.

3:02:213:02:24

And make sure you shave. You're all scratchy.

3:02:243:02:28

Just the way you like it, baby.

3:02:283:02:30

So rude.

3:02:323:02:33

'You've seen the posters for tomorrow?'

3:02:343:02:36

Yeah. I've seen them up everywhere.

3:02:363:02:38

-Bring Jennifer.

-'That'll be all right?'

3:02:383:02:40

Yeah, she wants us all there.

3:02:403:02:42

'You are coming? You're going to turn up?'

3:02:423:02:44

-Of course we're going.

-'Good.'

3:02:443:02:47

-Don't forget.

-'See you there.'

-OK.

3:02:473:02:49

-When can I go today, Miss?

-At the end of the day.

3:02:593:03:02

Smoking in the toilets means your arse belongs to me.

3:03:023:03:04

-HE GROANS

-Go and tune up, then.

3:03:043:03:07

RINGING TONE

3:03:073:03:10

He's not picking up. He's not picking up.

3:03:103:03:13

OK, you're going in a taxi.

3:03:133:03:16

But I want you to come. You promised you'd come.

3:03:163:03:19

I am coming. I give you my word, OK?

3:03:193:03:22

Hello. You must be the judge.

3:03:243:03:26

Yes, hello. I'm a little early.

3:03:263:03:28

-I didn't know you'd have an audience.

-I know.

3:03:283:03:30

Lots of people turned up.

3:03:303:03:31

Nothing like a little extra pressure, though.

3:03:313:03:35

What do I have to do to get us through to the competition?

3:03:353:03:38

I'm prepared to do...

3:03:393:03:41

..anything.

3:03:423:03:43

She really wants us to get through.

3:03:473:03:49

Yeah.

3:03:493:03:51

What did I ask you?

3:03:563:03:58

-What did I ask you?

-Calm yourself. I've been let down.

3:03:583:04:01

I'm finishing this before we come over.

3:04:013:04:03

I told you how important it was.

3:04:033:04:05

We're all sitting there at home waiting for you

3:04:053:04:07

and now we've had to take a bloody cab.

3:04:073:04:09

What's that got to do with me?

3:04:093:04:11

I told you I wanted you to take us.

3:04:113:04:14

-No, you didn't.

-I bloody did. I wanted you there.

3:04:143:04:18

No, you told me to bring Jennifer over to watch my mum.

3:04:183:04:20

You never mentioned a sodding lift.

3:04:203:04:22

Don't use that language in front of your daughter.

3:04:273:04:29

Don't you dare speak to me about her, ever.

3:04:293:04:33

Why aren't you with her in the taxi,

3:04:333:04:35

making sure she gets there all right?

3:04:353:04:36

I'll tell you why, because you'd sooner be here screaming at me,

3:04:363:04:40

at my work, in front of my child.

3:04:403:04:41

But you've got it wrong this time, haven't you?

3:04:413:04:44

You've embarrassed yourself.

3:04:443:04:46

An apology?

3:04:463:04:47

No, of course not.

3:04:483:04:50

I wanted you there.

3:04:513:04:52

I wanted you with me.

3:04:543:04:55

Is he angry with you?

3:05:033:05:04

He's just angry, love.

3:05:063:05:07

GUITARISTS TUNING UP

3:05:093:05:13

Can you see him?

3:05:133:05:14

Hello, everybody.

3:05:173:05:19

God, there's a lot of you here. That's quite a surprise.

3:05:193:05:22

Thank you for coming and I hope that you enjoy yourselves.

3:05:223:05:26

-Come on.

Yo, I don't think we should talk about this.

3:07:143:07:17

Come on! Why not?

3:07:173:07:19

Cos people might misunderstand what we're tryin' to say, you know?

# Just call me up

# Because you know I'll be there

3:09:133:09:15

3:10:453:10:46

Thank you, everybody.

3:10:493:10:52

I hope you have a great day.

3:10:523:10:53

What you doing hiding round here?

3:11:153:11:18

Oh...having a quiet smoke.

3:11:183:11:20

Shouldn't you be out there with Marion and the others?

3:11:203:11:23

I'm doing fine here, really.

3:11:233:11:25

I really don't understand you.

3:11:263:11:28

You have this wonderful woman who adores you...

3:11:283:11:32

..and she just sang in front of everyone for you.

3:11:333:11:37

For you, Arthur.

3:11:393:11:40

She put everything that she had into singing that song,

3:11:413:11:45

and you've got nothing to say?

3:11:453:11:47

It must be really hard being you.

3:11:503:11:52

Ah, there you are. I thought you'd disappeared.

3:11:553:11:58

You guys were brilliant today.

3:11:583:11:59

Don't you think, Arthur?

3:12:023:12:03

-We'll see you later.

-Bye.

3:12:083:12:10

You going to take me home?

3:12:133:12:15

-Don't you want to stay with your chums?

-No.

3:12:153:12:18

I want to go home with you, sit on the sofa.

3:12:183:12:20

What's wrong?

3:12:273:12:28

You looked so happy today.

3:12:313:12:32

I...

3:12:343:12:35

..haven't made you happy for a long time.

3:12:363:12:38

I'm very happy with you, Arthur.

3:12:403:12:43

I'm sorry.

3:12:533:12:56

From the time you came scruffing into my life, so gloomy,

3:12:563:13:00

I knew what I was letting myself in for.

3:13:003:13:03

You're my rock.

3:13:053:13:06

I don't want you to go.

3:13:143:13:16

I don't want you to go. Please.

3:13:183:13:20

Ooh, I'm done.

3:13:253:13:27

I'm tired.

3:13:273:13:28

What?

3:14:303:14:31

Do you still hate Daddy?

3:14:313:14:33

No, love. No. Not at all.

3:14:343:14:37

He likes you.

3:14:373:14:39

It's a bit complicated for little girls.

3:14:433:14:46

What do you mean? I'm eight. I do maths and everything.

3:14:463:14:49

Of course you do. I'm sorry.

3:14:493:14:51

Come on, love.

3:14:553:14:56

-Bye, Grandad.

-Goodbye, Jennifer.

3:14:583:15:01

He's a good boy.

3:15:073:15:08

Come on, then, Timothy.

3:21:373:21:39

"Marion came here to sing

3:21:453:21:47

"A wheelchair she did bring

3:21:483:21:50

"She sang with such a smile

3:21:513:21:54

"That made it not a trial

3:21:543:21:55

"The great thing about Marion

3:21:563:21:59

"Is that she gave us the strength to carry on."

3:21:593:22:04

Thank you.

3:22:073:22:08

I don't have any friends my own age.

3:24:323:24:36

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

3:24:383:24:41

I thought you would be awake because...

3:24:413:24:44

you know, you're not really sleeping and stuff.

3:24:443:24:47

It was a miracle that Marion and I met at all.

3:24:473:24:52

We were so different.

3:24:523:24:54

She had such faith in life.

3:24:543:24:57

She'd say...

3:24:573:24:59

"There's somebody out there for everybody.

3:24:593:25:03

"Look at us."

3:25:043:25:05

# Hey, if you happen to see

What made you come in?

3:27:343:27:37

I'm not sure.

3:27:373:27:39

To see how it felt, I suppose.

3:27:393:27:41

And how does it feel?

All right, well, before it gets too sentimental,

3:29:173:29:20

thank you very much and I'll see you next time.

That wasn't too painful, was it?

-You can talk, though, can't you?

-Yeah.

3:30:043:30:07

-What's that?

-Nothing wrong with your eyes, then.

3:30:073:30:11

-Can I have it?

-It's for you.

3:30:113:30:13

I didn't mean what I said to your dad. You know that, don't you?

-How is your dad? Is he OK?

-Yeah. I don't see him until the weekend.

3:30:263:30:28

Excuse me. Can I help you?

He gave me some sweets.

3:30:303:30:32

-She's my granddaughter.

-Have you got an appointment?

3:30:323:30:35

What, to give my granddaughter a chocolate?

3:30:353:30:37

-See you later, Grandad.

-OK.

3:31:003:31:04

Yeah, yeah, that's pretty... That's quite good.

3:31:043:31:06

That's it!

3:31:113:31:13

You can even communicate as robots.

3:31:143:31:16

-ROBOT VOICE:

-Hello. I am a robot.

3:31:163:31:20

Really, really stiff.

3:31:203:31:22

HE SCREAMS

3:31:223:31:24

Timothy, I'm so sorry.

3:31:243:31:26

No problem, Elizabeth. Happens a lot.

3:31:263:31:29

Bye, everyone!

3:31:293:31:31

-ALL:

-Bye, Tim.

-Bye.

3:31:313:31:33

Bloody hell!

3:31:353:31:37

All right, then. Shall we have a cup of tea?

3:31:373:31:40

Who sent this, then?

3:31:443:31:46

Here... Just sign this.

3:31:463:31:49

Brilliant, guys. Well, you deserve a coffee.

3:31:593:32:02

Be back in ten minutes.

3:32:023:32:04

You've only got six more rehearsals left.

3:32:043:32:06

-Oh, no. You can keep that.

-Why?

3:32:123:32:14

-Did you like the song?

-Yeah, it was all right.

3:32:153:32:18

-Lyrics?

-Yeah, nice.

3:32:183:32:21

-Do you want to do it?

-What, you mean in front of everybody?

3:32:213:32:23

No. No way. No.

3:32:253:32:27

How about we work it through together, just you and me?

3:32:273:32:30

-Why would you want to do that?

-Why wouldn't I?

3:32:303:32:33

I'll pick you up tomorrow after work.

3:32:333:32:35

Get a cup of coffee, Arthur.

BIRDSONG

3:32:393:32:41

Hello, son.

3:32:503:32:52

-What you doing?

-Waiting for you to go.

3:32:533:32:56

I was engaged for a couple of years to a flyboy, a pilot.

3:33:163:33:22

Never commit yourself to a man in uniform, Arthur,

3:33:233:33:27

especially if he's surrounded by lots of air hostesses.

3:33:273:33:30

All men are shits, aren't they?

3:33:303:33:32

I look forward to meeting one who isn't.

3:33:323:33:35

Present company excluded.

3:33:353:33:36

No, no - actually, I mean you're not a shit.

3:33:373:33:40

I've got something to show you.

3:33:423:33:44

Recognise her?

3:33:483:33:50

Yeah, we're in the programme now.

3:33:543:33:56

-There's no turning back.

-Yeah.

3:33:563:33:58

If we jump ship, there'll be nobody to come last.

3:33:583:34:01

We? So you're coming, then?

3:34:013:34:04

-# I must be crazy. #

-Yeah.

3:34:043:34:08

You may be crazy, but you'll be there. That is brilliant.

3:34:083:34:11

You can invite your son.

3:34:113:34:13

-He'd be so impressed...

-He's none of your business.

3:34:133:34:16

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to...

3:34:163:34:18

It doesn't matter what you meant. He's nothing to do with you.

3:34:183:34:21

I'm... I'm sorry.

3:34:263:34:28

-I apologise.

-No, no, no. I meddle. It's fine.

3:34:283:34:32

It's just that he and I...

3:34:323:34:35

..just never hit it off.

3:34:373:34:39

It's my fault. I never let him get close to me.

3:34:413:34:45

I'm sorry.

3:34:453:34:48

He's a good lad.

3:34:483:34:50

He's better off, really.

3:34:523:34:53

Do you want to do some singing?

3:34:563:34:58

THEY SING SCALES

3:35:003:35:03

That's better.

# Who is the hippie that's happenin' all over our town?

3:35:083:35:13

# Tearin' up the chicks with the message that he lays down

3:35:163:35:22

# Who is the coolest guy that is, what I am... #

3:35:243:35:28

Go towards the back of the room.

3:35:303:35:32

That's good. OK, same again. Sing it to the stage.

3:35:323:35:35

# Well, I think you're crazy... #

3:35:353:35:38

No, that's not projecting. That's just shouting.

3:35:383:35:40

# Chicks are makin' reservations for his lovin' so fine... #

3:35:403:35:46

Guess what.

3:35:463:35:47

Only one more after this, everyone.

3:35:493:35:52

# Who is the coolest guy that is, what I am... #

3:35:553:35:58

Don't forget a little bit of bump 'n' grind.

SHE PLAYS MELLOW MELODY

3:36:133:36:16

Will you sing that in the competition?

3:36:253:36:27

You must be joking.

3:36:293:36:30

All right, then, sing it tomorrow in choir practice, see how you feel,

3:36:303:36:34

and if it's all right, then you can sing it at the weekend.

3:36:343:36:36

I couldn't. I-I...

3:36:363:36:39

Look, it wasn't long ago that you couldn't think of anything worse

3:36:393:36:42

than singing silly songs with people you didn't really like.

3:36:423:36:45

Well, I didn't, like, REALLY not like them.

3:36:453:36:48

The way you sing it...is beautiful.

3:36:563:36:59

If Marion is listening,

3:37:013:37:03

or James, if he could hear you singing...

3:37:033:37:06

He hates me.

3:37:083:37:09

Well, then, do something to help change that.

3:37:103:37:13

Let him see you, Arthur.

3:37:143:37:16

Let everyone see you.

DOORBELL RINGS

3:37:313:37:32

Hello, son.

3:37:343:37:35

-What do you want?

-I thought we could have a chat.

3:37:383:37:41

I know it's difficult. I understand. You're cross.

3:37:453:37:47

It's just I'm... I'm missing your mother.

3:37:483:37:51

-Just come round to tell me that?

-Well, I'm missing you, as well.

3:37:533:37:58

What am I supposed to make of you?

3:38:003:38:02

Every time I see you...

3:38:033:38:04

..I don't know what it is I've done or not done in my life

3:38:063:38:09

to make you so disappointed.

3:38:093:38:11

I mean, I've achieved so many things, so many good things,

3:38:113:38:15

but you're always disappointed.

3:38:153:38:17

Why can't you be proud?

3:38:193:38:20

I am proud, son.

3:38:223:38:24

Well, you never thought once to tell me.

3:38:243:38:27

Well, I tell everybody.

3:38:273:38:29

Why don't you tell me?

3:38:293:38:31

I'm trying now.

3:38:353:38:36

I'm still trying to cope with my mum.

3:38:393:38:41

Maybe I can help.

3:38:433:38:44

It's too late for that. You're too late.

3:38:483:38:51

# A, E, I, O, U... #

This - it isn't me.

3:39:293:39:32

Everybody knows that.

3:39:363:39:37

It isn't me.

3:39:403:39:41

I'll be back in a second.

3:39:513:39:52

-Arthur. Arthur, come on, wait.

-I'm a mug, aren't I?

3:39:543:39:57

I'm not what you think I am.

3:39:573:39:58

-I'm not like everybody in there. I'm not like Marion.

-Shh!

3:39:583:40:01

I'm not the life and soul of the party and full of joy and guts.

3:40:013:40:05

I'm miserable old Arthur.

3:40:053:40:07

I've ruined everything I've ever had and it's too late.

3:40:073:40:10

I can't change. It's...

3:40:103:40:12

It's too late.

3:40:123:40:14

So...

3:40:143:40:16

just leave me alone.

3:41:513:41:53

I don't think so.

3:41:543:41:55

All right, let's, er... Let's go.

3:41:563:41:58

# Here we go, here we go, here we go

3:42:023:42:06

# Here we go, here we go here we go... #

3:42:063:42:07

Oh, I'm fed up with these words.

3:42:073:42:09

Can you all follow me, please?

3:42:363:42:38

I'll take you up to your dressing room.

3:42:383:42:39

Come on, everyone.

3:42:393:42:40

-ALL: Ooh!

-Who's a lovely girl, then?

3:42:433:42:45

So, before the audience come, we have to do a sound check.

3:42:483:42:51

What's that, then?

3:42:513:42:52

They need to know what we're singing and what we do.

3:42:523:42:54

-How many groups are there?

-20.

3:42:543:42:57

But we have got just as much chance as all of them.

3:42:573:43:00

THEY SING "Ode To Joy" IN GERMAN

3:43:003:43:03

Bloody hell. They're brilliant.

3:43:073:43:09

We're going to get laughed out the bloody door!

3:43:093:43:11

No, we're not.

3:43:113:43:13

-OK, you're up.

-OK, guys, come on.

3:43:233:43:26

Steven, what's this on the desk?

3:43:413:43:44

-I thought they were good, but they were a bit...dull.

-We can do better.

3:44:083:44:12

I think we had more personality.

3:44:123:44:15

Uh...

3:44:223:44:23

I know you all loved Marion, and...when we were younger,

3:44:283:44:34

I would have done anything to be with her

3:44:343:44:37

and...share something like this with all of you.

3:44:373:44:41

-You don't have to do this in front of everyone, Arthur.

-No, I...

3:44:433:44:46

I'm sorry for how I've been...

3:44:463:44:51

and...I'm going to...

3:44:513:44:56

Even if I fall flat on my arse, I'm going to do the song, Elizabeth.

3:44:583:45:03

If you'll let me.

3:45:033:45:05

Of course you can.

3:45:073:45:08

Can I have a word?

3:45:133:45:15

Oh. Yeah.

We have such a wide, fantastic variety of choirs

3:45:513:45:54

Ladies and gentlemen, The Backworth Male Voice Choir.

3:45:593:46:03

THEY SING "Gwahoddiad"

3:46:053:46:07

What do they mean, dumbing down?

3:46:133:46:15

-We're in the programme!

-Come on, driver. It's embarrassing.

3:46:153:46:19

It's not fair.

3:46:193:46:21

Maybe we saved ourselves from getting laughed at

3:46:213:46:23

by a theatre full of people.

3:46:233:46:25

Somebody once told me it didn't matter if you got laughed at.

3:46:303:46:33

Open the door, driver.

3:46:353:46:37

Arthur, what are you doing?

3:46:383:46:40

I'm going to sing that bloody song

3:46:403:46:42

you've been ramming down my throat all week.

3:46:423:46:45

Come on.

3:46:453:46:46

APPLAUSE

3:46:523:46:54

Thank you to the Backworth Male Voice Choir.

3:47:043:47:07

Stage door here - can we have some assistance, please?

3:47:073:47:09

Now we have 35 dapper young men...

3:47:093:47:11

God help me, love.

3:47:113:47:12

..full of class and charisma.

3:47:123:47:14

Some random man just walked on stage.

3:47:143:47:16

I've never seen him before. I don't know what he's doing.

3:47:163:47:18

Sorry.

3:47:223:47:23

Now some other random girl has joined him.

3:47:233:47:26

RIPPLES OF LAUGHTER

3:47:293:47:32

Excuse me. Excuse me.

3:47:333:47:36

Oh, it's those OAP people you got rid of earlier.

3:47:363:47:39

I can't stop them, can I? Cos there's like 30 of them.

3:47:413:47:44

OK, I'll get them to introduce them. OK.

3:47:443:47:47

What?

3:47:473:47:48

You're just going to have to introduce them. The OAP'Z.

3:47:483:47:52

Now.

3:47:523:47:53

Well, as you can see, they're not in suits,

3:47:533:47:56

but they do have class.

3:47:563:47:59

LAUGHTER

3:47:593:48:01
