0:09:050:09:07

I keep telling you, you can't take it.

0:09:130:09:16

It's got nothing to do with that. I just thought to myself,

0:09:160:09:19

"I'll go home, build myself a lovely... "

0:09:190:09:22

-Big spliff.

-Or a big spliff.

0:09:220:09:25

I build this big spliff. Lock myself in the bedroom.

0:09:250:09:29

Put the headphones on. Thought I'd get in some hard rhythm.

0:09:290:09:33

Next thing I know, I'm sparked out on the floor,

0:09:330:09:36

blinking up at my old woman and she's shouting, "Ronnie, Ronnie."

0:09:360:09:40

Are you gonna light that?

0:09:400:09:41

-I ain't got no matches.

-Hold up.

0:09:440:09:47

Ta.

0:09:480:09:50

What was I saying?

0:09:500:09:51

Something about your old dear.

0:09:510:09:53

So she sends my old man upstairs. He comes steaming up the stairs.

0:09:530:09:58

He sees me on the floor and HE starts.

0:09:580:10:03

"Fuck me, doll. Quick, ring for an ambulance."

0:10:030:10:07

HE LAUGHS

0:10:070:10:08

-D'you know what I did then?

-What?

0:10:080:10:10
