0:01:460:01:48

Ever heard the one about not walking into a room

0:01:480:01:50

until you know how you're walking out of there, Tug?

0:01:500:01:53

We all miss our birds, mucker. No need to start grooming the local nippers.

0:01:570:02:00

Fuck off.

0:02:000:02:02

Grenade fishing - nearly catch of the fucking day, me.

SPEAKS PASHTO

0:02:240:02:26

First lesson my grandma taught me, Tug. Don't pick a fight with an armed midget.

0:02:260:02:31

We're a long way from home.

0:02:310:02:33

What you talking about, you're from Huddersfield.

0:02:330:02:35

-Go on, mate.

-Cheers.

0:02:350:02:37

Race you back up?

0:02:390:02:42

Ah, you're fully loaded, mate. Unfair fight.

0:02:420:02:46

HELICOPTER BLADES WHIR

0:02:460:02:47

OK, go! Now!

0:03:410:03:43

-Signals?

-Yeah, mate. Cheers.

0:03:540:03:56

Come on, then, what's the news? Heard there was a heat wave back home.

0:03:590:04:03

-Typical, innit?

-Heat wave? Pissed it down, mate.

0:04:030:04:07

Anyway, where's the FLET?

0:04:070:04:10

FLET? Hat!

0:04:100:04:12

It's all around you, mate.

0:04:120:04:14

Terry pokes his nose up here. We smash him back into his hole.

0:04:140:04:18

Bosh!

0:04:180:04:20

-Did you bring it?

-In the back, pal.

0:04:230:04:25

My guide tells me something's coming.

0:04:280:04:29

They got a new field commander. Keep your eyes open.

0:04:290:04:33

Sure, John. Cheers.

0:04:330:04:35

-Civvies here?

-Yank security.

0:04:350:04:37

They look after the engineers working on the dam.

0:04:370:04:39

Talk about hearts and minds,

0:04:390:04:42

this joint would supply electricity to half of bloody Helmand,

0:04:420:04:44

if someone could work out how to turn it on.

0:04:440:04:46

-So where have you been?

-Ops room, Bastion. Sangin, then here.

0:04:460:04:50

-Ah, Sangin. Proper tasty, right?

-Telling me.

0:04:500:04:54

-Is this us?

-Nah. OMLTs.

0:04:560:04:59

Teaching the ANA which end of a weapon's the noisy bit.

0:04:590:05:02

We're up top, mate.

0:05:020:05:03

-So what's it like up here?

-Right, OK, fellas...

0:05:050:05:07

It's going on, that's what it is, mucker.

0:05:070:05:10

I quit the reg after Telic - zero contacts, mate.

0:05:100:05:13

I joined back when Herrick was on. Finally get a piece of the action.

0:05:130:05:16

Rather be in the scrum than on a subs bench, do you know what I mean?

0:05:160:05:20

Not really.

0:05:200:05:21

Rugby's a real game, mate. Taliban should play it. Tough bastards.

0:05:210:05:26

I'm pretty sure Afghans don't play rugby.

0:05:260:05:29

Here, look, look, look.

0:05:290:05:30

-Give us a lift up, pal?

-Hop on, Tug.

0:05:320:05:34

0:06:110:06:13

Shit the fucking bed!

0:06:160:06:18

I hope you know how to use a radio without batteries, Signaller Jones.

0:06:180:06:21

For fuck's sake.

0:06:210:06:23

-Right, welfare box. Who wants it?

-Yeah, I'll have it, Pross.

0:06:230:06:25

Any decent scoff though, we split it, yeah?

0:06:250:06:27

Prosser, stop twatting about and get that stuff up there!

0:06:270:06:31

Fusilier AL Barlow's got his porn re-sup.

0:06:360:06:39

Fuck me, Ken, your mum looks hotter every month.

0:06:390:06:41

Yeah, fucking hands off, mate. The rest?

0:06:410:06:44

-You been up here before?

-You dicks!

0:06:580:07:01

No, first time.

0:07:010:07:03

-Aye, mortar boys, you can have that one.

-Jay, you want to show him around, mate.

0:07:030:07:06

Well, we know where your basha is, Barlow. Keep an eye open, that's all I'm saying, mate.

0:07:060:07:09

0:07:090:07:11

Luke, boat came in, mate.

0:07:110:07:13

Skin 'em up, will you.

0:07:130:07:14

-Prosser, catch you up there, pal.

0:07:520:07:56

Right, this needs to go over with the other stuff.

0:07:560:07:59

-Ken.

0:07:590:08:02

Thank you, Ken. Thank you, Prosser.

0:08:020:08:05

0:08:050:08:08

-Was it anyone nice?

-Four, actually. All delightful.

0:08:340:08:37

Bastard. Right, put it away.

0:08:370:08:38

You gotta be careful flashing it about this lot.

0:08:380:08:41

What is it? Long time on the hill.

0:08:410:08:45

Gungy mortars? The rumours are true, pal.

0:08:450:08:47

We own all this high ground. Out of small-arms' range.

0:09:230:09:27

A few Chinese rockets, bit of boom, boom in the valley, but that's it.

0:09:270:09:31

Lucky, cos we're out of ammo.

0:09:310:09:32

0:10:370:10:42

We think.

0:10:420:10:43

We think. I, er, killed a king and I'm not Guy Fawkes.

0:10:430:10:48

Who didn't kill anyone.

0:10:500:10:51

-For fuck's sake, Stu, mate.

-Fucker!

0:10:530:10:55

0:10:550:10:58

I thought you knew your fucking history.

0:10:580:11:00

Just fucking guess, will you, before I slit my fucking wrists.

0:11:000:11:03

-Am I anything to do with King Arthur?

-No.

0:11:030:11:05

You got three guesses and then it's five bines for mush.

0:11:050:11:08

Aye.

You know, in case we want to come down and plant some fucking cabbages one day.

0:37:390:37:43

At an angle there's a chance he could bleed out or bleed in.

0:39:220:39:24

-We need a winch, pal.

-That's what I've been saying.

-We've got a stretcher.

0:39:240:39:28

We should have enough bodies to keep him level.

0:39:280:39:30

-Have you seen how fucking steep it is?

-Just cut the corner, go up the re-entrant.

0:39:300:39:33

No way are we leaving the path. I'm saying stick tight, wait here for the heli. That's my opinion.

0:39:330:39:38

Mark, what you thinking?

0:39:380:39:39

We need to pull him away from the rocks. Get him out in the open.

0:39:410:39:44

0:53:230:53:25

They're signalling something. I can't work it out.

0:53:250:53:28

What's going on, mate?

0:53:280:53:29

The airframe's here, but we can't get you fucking over there. For fuck's sake.

0:53:290:53:33

Any call sign, tell the bird to clear the fuck out of here!

0:53:330:53:37

This is a hot HLS, repeat, mines. Over.

0:53:390:53:42

They are posing a major risk to themselves and to us!

0:53:430:53:46

Jarhead, SITREP.

0:54:270:54:29

Jarhead, SITREP

0:54:350:54:37

-Jarhead!

-Yeah?

0:54:380:54:40

Fucking SITREP.

0:54:400:54:42

Mark's taken it in the chest...

0:54:420:54:43

..and Stu's been hit again.

0:54:450:54:47

And the med's down.

0:54:470:54:49

Alex.

0:54:490:54:50

Alex?

0:54:520:54:54

OK?

0:54:550:54:57

Oi, Jarhead, get him out of here, man. Fucking get that man up.

0:55:030:55:06

Fucking get him out of here. You do not let that fucking man drop!

0:55:060:55:10

Come on, man, get your arse over here.

0:55:100:55:11

Get him out. Help him out!

0:55:110:55:14

It's all right, mate, come on.

0:55:140:55:16

0:55:210:55:23

0:55:230:55:25

Tug, what do I fucking do?

0:55:260:55:28

0:56:010:56:03

Just hang fucking tight, Mark.

0:56:030:56:05

I'm going to get you out of here.

0:56:050:56:07

SCREAMS OF INJURED SOLDIERS

0:56:070:56:10

-Come and help me out!

-Tug!

0:56:130:56:17

Tug, what we doing?

0:56:170:56:20

Prosser! Triage!

0:56:200:56:22

Prosser, triage!

0:56:270:56:29

Erm...

0:56:290:56:32

Mark's got wounds to the chest. It's pretty fucking ugly.

0:56:320:56:36

Stu's been hit again but...

0:56:360:56:37

I can't see where, there's fuck loads of blood.

0:56:370:56:39

-PEARSON:

-Where's the fucking chopper?

0:56:390:56:41

And Ken's got no fucking idea.

0:56:410:56:43

And w... what med kit have you got?

0:56:440:56:47

Fuck all!

0:56:470:56:49

I left me day sack over there. It's still got a bit of stuff left.

0:56:490:56:52

OK, erm.

0:56:520:56:54

Ken. Ken, should be a day sack near you. Can you see it?

0:56:540:56:58

-Yeah, yeah it's here.

-All right, pal.

0:57:000:57:02

Can you try and reach it for me?

0:57:020:57:04

Ken, fucking hell.

0:57:090:57:10

-He's going to set off another...

-Ken, Ken! Don't worry about it, mate.

0:57:100:57:13

We'll fucking sack it off, mate. Don't worry, we'll try something else.

0:57:130:57:16

-Wait, I'm nearly there.

-Ken, don't do it! No! No, Ken, fucking don't!

0:57:160:57:20

I've got it! I've got it!

0:57:230:57:24

Oh, God.

0:57:250:57:27

OK, what's it got?

0:57:270:57:30

IV fluids. Some dressings.

0:57:300:57:34

Two sticks of morphine. That's it.

0:57:340:57:37

Er, tourniquet. Has it got a tourniquet?

0:57:370:57:40

No, no. That's all there is.

0:57:400:57:43

Ken, listen to me.

0:57:430:57:44

You need to get those dressings to Mark's chest.

0:57:440:57:48

Yeah, you need to make your way over there.

0:57:480:57:50

Now, Ken.

0:57:500:57:52

OK.

0:57:540:57:55

OK. OK. OK.

0:58:110:58:13

-OK, I'm here. I'm here.

-Right, then... I want you to use a rifle sling

0:58:170:58:21

to tourniquet his arm, yeah?

0:58:210:58:23

And that'll stop the bleeding. All right?

0:58:250:58:29

Ken, catch.

0:58:290:58:32

-OK... OK.

-That's it, tourniquet his arm.

0:58:380:58:41

And try to cannulate and get some IVs into him.

0:58:410:58:43

That's it, tourniquet his arm. Yeah.

0:58:460:58:48

No, just stop. Mark. Mark, I've got to!

0:58:500:58:53

-You need to try to cannulate.

-Mark!

0:58:560:58:58

Just a circle, mucker.

0:59:010:59:03

Tie it in a circle and put it round his arm, all right mate?

0:59:030:59:06

Put it round his arm and tie it tight, it'll stop the bleeding.

0:59:090:59:12

Nobody's asking you to do open fucking heart surgery, Ken.

0:59:120:59:14

Where, Prosser!

0:59:140:59:15

Where do you want me to fucking tie it?

0:59:150:59:17

His arm is barely fucking hanging on!

0:59:170:59:20

Mark, please.

0:59:200:59:22

Please, Mark, please.

0:59:220:59:25

Fuck off!

0:59:250:59:26

Someone help me out.

0:59:270:59:29

KEN SOBS

0:59:290:59:31

-KEN:

-Fucking hell.

0:59:310:59:34

Yeah, yeah, yeah, all right, all right, Ken, Ken, Ken. Just forget the tourniquet.

0:59:340:59:37

Use the T-shirt, plug the fucking hole.

0:59:370:59:39

OK, let me...

0:59:390:59:40

-Mark, stop. Mark.

-Prosser.

0:59:400:59:43

-Where's the fucking Motorola?

-KEN:

-Fucking stop, mate! OK, OK, OK.

0:59:430:59:46

Must have gone up with Mark.

0:59:460:59:48

SCREAMING

0:59:480:59:51

Ken. Ken, look at me.

0:59:530:59:55

You're doing a fucking great job, all right, mucker.

0:59:550:59:57

Ah, fucking hell!

1:00:081:00:10

Fucking wait. Sit, sit down.

1:00:111:00:12

Tug.

1:00:141:00:16

If you get yourself pinged halfway we've got ourselves a whole new nightmare.

1:00:161:00:18

But I'm the only... I'm the only medic and this is the only fucking med kit.

1:00:191:00:23

You were just telling Smudge not to be a dick, right don't do anything stupid.

1:00:241:00:27

Yeah, but this is stupid.

1:00:271:00:29

It is a bit fucking stupid.

1:00:291:00:31

Yeah, but I've got a plan.

1:00:321:00:33

-Listen, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop.

-Whoa, whoa, whoa.

1:00:411:00:44

Easy, mate, what is it?

1:00:441:00:45

Come on.

1:00:461:00:47

-What's up?

-It's my fucking lung.

1:00:481:00:51

-Fucking hell.

-You're supposed to land on the fucking thing.

1:00:581:01:01

Fuck off.

1:01:021:01:03

OK. OK. OK...

1:01:041:01:07

OK, OK, OK, OK...

1:01:261:01:29

OK. OK, now.

1:01:321:01:35

OK. OK. OK...

1:01:381:01:41

Come on, you fucking pussy. Fucking hell.

1:01:521:01:55

What are you doing, Tug?

1:01:551:01:56

You can shut up, Mark. Before I change my fucking mind.

1:01:571:02:00

It's too fucking dangerous. Stop it.

1:02:011:02:03

I need you to put a tube in me.

1:02:041:02:06

-What?

-You're a...trained medic.

1:02:061:02:09

Ah, no, mate, no. No, no, that was,

1:02:101:02:12

that was two days in Belfast, man. Two fucking years ago.

1:02:121:02:15

Piece of piss. I put one in a few weeks ago.

1:02:151:02:17

What's your name?

1:02:181:02:20

-Wha...?

-I said...

1:02:201:02:21

-Harvey.

-What's your name?

-Jarhead.

1:02:211:02:24

Jarhead. My right lung's collapsed. If you don't cut me...

1:02:241:02:28

stick this in my chest,

1:02:281:02:32

I'll stop breathing and die.

1:02:321:02:34

Second rib.

1:02:361:02:37

Mid-clavicular.

1:02:371:02:38

I've asked you once, I can't ask again. Just cut me.

1:02:391:02:44

Fucking...

1:02:441:02:45

Halfway, Tug. Fucking awesome.

1:02:471:02:51

It's like watching him mount his missus.

1:02:511:02:53

Oh, fucking hell... What the fuck am I doing?

1:03:021:03:05

Oh, fuck...

1:03:051:03:06

Oh, fuck it.

1:03:131:03:14

Sod's law you get pinged on the way back anyhow.

1:03:161:03:18

MARK: Here, I thought I told you about not walking into a room

1:03:181:03:22

until you know how you're walking out of there.

1:03:221:03:25

OK. OK. You can fucking do this.

1:03:251:03:29

You can fucking do this.

1:03:291:03:31

You can fucking do this.

1:03:311:03:33

Oh, why the fuck not? You can fucking do this! Fuck it.

1:03:331:03:37

OK. OK.

1:04:331:04:35

-I need my fucking camera.

-All right, all right. We'll get your photos, just stop moving, please.

1:04:351:04:38

Hey, pal, cas evac.

Ken, you got a drink of water, mate, I'm fucking dying here.

1:04:401:04:43

No, no, no, I'm out, mate.

1:04:451:04:47

Tug? Have you got any water?

1:04:491:04:51

I need you to lean on your side,

1:07:111:07:13

don't let any shit drain into the good one, yeah.

1:07:131:07:16

Lean up on that rock there.

1:07:161:07:18

1:07:261:07:28

Thanks, mate.

1:07:281:07:29

What are we going to do with you?

1:07:321:07:34

Fuck you.

1:07:341:07:36

All right, mate. All right, OK.

1:07:361:07:38

Where's the fucking blood going?

1:07:381:07:40

You're all right, pal. I got you.

ZAP numbers on my say, yeah. Give the medics a head start.

1:08:571:09:01

Half a fucking job, Ken.

1:09:031:09:04

Could have done it a lot better myself, but it'll do for now.

1:09:041:09:07

-It still fucking hurts!

-You've had your left pin nipped off, pal.

1:09:071:09:10

It's meant to hurt, but the morphine'll kick in soon, yeah.

You do any better?

1:12:021:12:04

Stu.

1:12:041:12:06

That's not a nickname.

1:12:061:12:08

1:12:231:12:26

Stu.

1:12:261:12:28

Someone needs to look at that.

1:12:281:12:30

It's all my fault, isn't it?

1:12:341:12:36

No.

1:12:371:12:38

-It's not your fault, mate.

-Don't talk like that, mucker.

1:12:381:12:41

Think about getting out of here. Think about your family.

Hmm. Jimmy. He's, er, five. He's, he's a good kid. And...

-Yeah.

1:12:561:13:00

Oi, Smudge.

1:13:041:13:05

You tell Shannon, yeah...

1:13:081:13:09

you tell her if it's a boy...

1:13:121:13:14

you fucking tell her to call him Alexander, yeah?

1:13:171:13:21

And if it's a girl, call her Sofia.

1:13:211:13:24

Would you do that mate, for me, yeah?

1:13:241:13:27

-I need you to fucking do that for me.

-Shut up! No, I'm not going to tell her that.

1:13:271:13:30

I'm not going to tell her anything.

1:13:301:13:32

Right, cos if I need to clear a route

1:13:321:13:34

with my bare fucking hands all the way to Camp Bastion

1:13:341:13:36

I'm getting you out of this gash pit. Do you hear me?

1:13:361:13:38

And it's not going to be, what is it, Sofia, fucking Alexander

1:13:381:13:41

it'll be fucking Smudge Junior, or Smudgella.

1:13:411:13:45

And I'll tell you something else, mush, you're going to fucking make selection, and all.

1:13:451:13:48

You're going to be the first fucking one-legged, bunny-hopping badge there's ever been, all right?

1:13:481:13:51

So none of this fucking platform four, self-pity fucking bullshit.

1:13:511:13:56

We spent too much BST getting you this far.

1:13:561:13:58

We haven't given up on you,

1:13:581:13:59

the least you could do is not give up on us, you cunt.

1:13:591:14:02

Jesus, Smudge, easy on.

1:14:081:14:11

-"Gash pit".

-Shut the fuck up.

1:14:121:14:16

1:14:291:14:34

The morphine will work, pal. You just got to give it time.

1:14:341:14:38

It's been a fucking hour, man.

1:14:381:14:42

It's been half an hour, Ken. Let me tell you something, Ken.

1:14:421:14:45

The more you shout, the faster your heartbeat, the quicker you'll bleed out.

1:14:451:14:48

All right, so for your own good, and ours, just shut your fucking jimmy, all right.

1:14:481:14:51

OK, OK.

1:14:511:14:53

All right, Mark, I'm just going to have another look at this, yeah?

1:14:591:15:02

It's going to fucking hurt so bite down, mate.

1:15:021:15:04

OK.

1:15:051:15:06

MARK GROANS

1:15:091:15:10

Right, all of you. Just fucking...

1:15:201:15:23

ignore this next bit, yeah, ignore what I fucking say.

1:15:231:15:25

Jay, Smudge. I'm going to talk shit for a bit to keep things moving, all right?

1:15:251:15:30

Just fucking... Everyone fucking ignore what I say, OK?

1:15:301:15:34

Right, listen to me, you pricks!

1:15:381:15:40

We've been waiting for this chopper for three fucking hours.

1:15:401:15:44

And if it don't come soon,

1:15:441:15:45

and I'm talking NOW, people are going to start dying down here.

1:15:451:15:49

Minutes, all right, that's what we've fucking got.

1:15:491:15:53

You have to fucking sort it out!

1:15:531:15:55

C-Cas evac. How long?

1:16:021:16:04

Just going to catch 40 winks, lads.

1:16:161:16:19

-Stu.

-While Cathy gets her nails done.

1:16:191:16:22

-No fucking Kraut's getting this deckchair off me.

-Stu, don't go to sleep, man.

1:16:221:16:25

Unless they want a fucking set...

1:16:271:16:29

-Stu, you're talking shit, pal.

-I'm up, I'm up.

1:16:291:16:32

Sorry, man.

1:16:321:16:34

Fuck. I'm back in the room, lads. I'm back in the room.

1:16:341:16:37

Fuck.

1:16:401:16:41

Hey, lads.

1:16:421:16:43

I'd kill anybody right now for a cold tin of brew, so is.

1:16:441:16:47

That's it, mate. Cheerful fucking thoughts.

1:16:521:16:54

-Mark, you're getting married, so I hear.

-Hmm. Aye. November.

1:16:561:17:02

Just as well, lads, think my wanking days are over.

1:17:031:17:06

Might need to get my suit re-measured, though.

1:17:071:17:10

Think she'll fucking recognise me?

1:17:171:17:19

Course she fucking will.

1:17:211:17:22

-Mark?

-Hmm? Aye?

1:17:241:17:26

You going to...you going to have a big piss-up afters?

1:17:281:17:31

Oh, you bet you. Er, Minto Hotel. Bells and whistles.

1:17:321:17:39

-Yeah?

-If we get out of this, you, you lads are all coming, yeah.

1:17:391:17:44

-Cash bar?

-Fuck you.

1:17:441:17:46

Fucking cash bar(!)

1:17:461:17:48

Fucking arse.

1:17:481:17:50

Free bar, fuck, free bar.

1:17:501:17:52

Ah, fucking hell. That's diamond. I'm going to fucking go all out.

1:17:521:17:57

-Aye?

-I...I haven't been legless since February.

1:17:571:18:01

-PEARSON:

-You don't need to fucking worry about that any more, do you, Barlow?

1:18:021:18:06

THEY LAUGH

1:18:061:18:07

Ah, I'm going to be fucking legless every night, now.

1:18:101:18:13

-PEARSON:

-Ken Barlow.

1:18:131:18:15

Hey, lads. I just realised, we don't need to worry about the third mine any more.

1:18:151:18:21

Good old Ken's fucking found it for us. Cheers, Ken!

1:18:211:18:26

Always getting dicked, mate.

1:18:281:18:30

MARK: The really funny thing is, boys...

1:18:301:18:32

they didn't get fucking planted here, they all just washed off the hill

1:18:321:18:35

and down to the river beds.

1:18:351:18:37

There could be fucking hundreds of them...

1:18:371:18:40

All around here. All around us.

1:18:401:18:44

-SMUDGE:

-No. Last guess, make it a good one.

1:19:201:19:24

-Come on, give me, give me some more...

-Eh? What did you say? "Rules is rules", Stu.

1:19:241:19:29

I just had my fucking leg blown off, mate.

1:19:291:19:32

Is that how it's going to be now? "Oh, my poor leg. Oi, lend us a quid, Smudge."

1:19:321:19:38

All right, fuck off.

1:19:381:19:39

-Hannibal Lecter?

-Nah.

1:19:461:19:48

Let's call it quits.

1:19:481:19:50

Harold Shipman.

1:19:511:19:54

Harold fucking who?

1:19:561:19:57

Harold Shipman, the Doctor of Death.

1:19:571:20:00

No, I've never heard of him.

1:20:001:20:02

Of course you have. He killed, like, 200 people, maybe more.

1:20:021:20:05

-He's not, like, fucking world famous, is he?

-He's from your neck of the woods.

1:20:051:20:09

You know exactly who I'm talking about.

1:20:091:20:12

-Well, there's not a fucking plaque to him.

-He's up there. You'd be surprised.

1:20:121:20:16

We're never getting out of here.

1:20:161:20:19

-HE GROANS

1:20:481:20:50

-It still fucking hurts.

-Yeah, that's good, mucker.

1:20:521:20:54

If it's hurting it means you're alive, mate. All right?

1:20:561:20:59

Stu.

1:21:021:21:04

Stu, punch your card.

1:21:061:21:08

-My camera...

-Fucking camera, pal.

1:21:081:21:10

I need more fucking morphine.

1:21:141:21:18

You take the pain, Stu. You're a big lad, you'll be all right.

1:21:181:21:21

Mark?

1:21:261:21:28

No fucking snoozing, boys, yeah?

1:21:301:21:33

-Prosser? You with us?

-Yeah.

1:21:351:21:39

Y... Yeah. Yeah.

1:21:391:21:41

Keep talking to me, Prosser.

1:21:411:21:44

Talk about what?

1:21:441:21:46

You tell me, pal.

1:21:461:21:47

We could talk about the weather.

1:21:491:21:51

Short, fucking conversation.

1:21:511:21:53

T-Tell you what,

1:21:561:21:57

I'm trying to think if I've had worse birthdays than this.

1:21:581:22:02

And I've had some shit ones.

1:22:041:22:05

When I was eight, my...

1:22:121:22:15

..mum and dad clean out fucking forgot.

1:22:151:22:17

All day long I was thinking, they're just pretending.

1:22:191:22:24

They're going to spring this monster fucking surprise on me.

1:22:241:22:27

Even when I'm having my tea

1:22:291:22:32

in the bath,

1:22:321:22:35

getting into fucking bed...

1:22:351:22:37

I'm thinking, oh, these guys are good.

1:22:371:22:39

Then they shut the door, turned out the lights

1:22:421:22:45

and that was it.

1:22:481:22:49

I cried like a burst fucking drain.

1:22:511:22:53

Then they came back in, though, yeah?

1:22:561:22:58

No.

1:22:581:22:59

No.

1:22:591:23:00

They fucking forgot.

1:23:011:23:04

But this is shitter.

1:23:041:23:05

Well, we can do something about that, can't we boys?

1:23:091:23:12

1:23:121:23:14

I think I've got a bottle of champagne in the fucking bag.

Looks like you're out of luck, mate.

1:27:481:27:49

-It's funny...

-What's that?

1:27:511:27:54

My mum always said I was born under a lucky star.

1:27:581:28:01

How?

1:28:011:28:02

Kept on winning things, you know, like raffles and stuff.

1:28:041:28:10

Yeah.

1:28:101:28:11

I won her a pair of diamond earrings at the Sabre Centre.

1:28:131:28:17

She always wore them when I came home.

1:28:171:28:19

And I've always felt lucky.

1:29:421:29:44

-I am.

-No, you're not. You're all right... Fine.

want her to marry some other fella.

1:37:531:37:58

# This is the life for me

1:37:581:38:02
