House Husbands (2012) Episode Scripts

N/A - Season 4, Episode 4

1 Come on, Atticus.
Are all the neighbours that friendly? I wanna be here for my grandson.
A few weeks ago, I went and bought this house.
Without asking me.
And it's way too big.
Would you like to come and stay for a while? - What's going on? - Something happened.
I stepped aside.
We ask Abi to have our baby? I'll do it.
I'll be your surrogate.
I have rights.
I'm her father.
I know you're worried she can't look after a dog but she won't have to.
Do you like it? - Because you can come and visit him - He's staying right here.
Puppy's staying right here.
And Rodney was just just leaving.
Look at you.
- Very smart.
- (DOORBELL CHIMES) You're going to love going back to school, isn't he, Til? - Yep.
- Let's get a photo with you both.
Tilda, stand next to Sam.
Ready? (SHUTTER CLICKS) Oh, Rachel.
- Isn't this fun? - Atticus is starting Year 1 as well.
His father won't cough up the alimony so we've had to ditch the private school and settle for Nepean Public.
It's a bit of a step down but we'll cope.
Rachel thought it might be nice if we all walked to school together.
Yes, but only if you hurry up.
The important thing is to sound normal.
Are you saying I can't sound normal? No, you'll be fine but I just think it's important not to sound like a control freak.
Why would I do that? Kane said that's what the psychologist will be looking for.
Control freaks don't make good surrogates.
You should let me answer all the questions.
- See? That's sounds control-freaky.
- I'm just better at tests than you.
- You get angsty.
- It's not a test.
- It's an assessment.
- It's a test.
"The potential surrogate will partake in a psychological assessment.
They need to be in good physical health" - Tick.
- "Financially stable" - Tick ish.
- "Resilient, - Responsible, empathetic" - Tick.
Tick.
Tick.
"And have finished having their own family.
" Total tick.
We are going to nail this test.
Have we? What? Finished our own family? - We have.
- Have we? You already asked that.
Mark, we are having Kane's baby.
We made a commitment.
Our family is perfect and complete as it is.
It's not logical, it's not practical but I want to have more kids.
What did Abi say? She said we could have another guinea pig.
You can have Butch.
I can't do it anymore.
He's up all night.
I haven't slept since we got him.
Hey, aren't you meant to be having Kane's baby? - Hi! - Don't say anything to Kane.
Hey.
Alright, kids, off you go.
- Have a good day.
- Bye! - Bye! - Have fun.
Hey! How did you go at the fertility clinic? Couldn't be better.
My ovaries are stimulated, my eggs will be ripe in a week.
Anyone want a lunch order? No, thanks.
No, thanks.
I can't believe we're actually going to do this.
- Me neither.
- How's Abi? Ready to roost? - Yeah, she's fine.
- Have you told Stella yet? Oh, I will.
You better.
We're implanting in a week.
Alright.
I haven't told Stella about the baby yet.
The maybe baby.
- Having second thoughts, yeah? - No way.
- Oh.
- Finn's OK.
He's much older.
But I'm having trouble explaining the whole surrogacy thing to Stella.
It's very complicated.
It's weird.
That's what it is.
Thanks for your broad-minded input, Lewis, as always.
- Mark.
- Rachel.
How did Atticus go? He was happy enough to go in.
It'll be interesting to see how he gets on, though.
- He's on the spectrum.
- Sorry? - Gifted.
- Oh.
Right.
Yeah.
It's tough for him, being so ahead of the pack.
Pretty sure he'll cope.
Is that yours? - Hm.
- What is it? It's a it's a puppy.
- No, the breed.
- Um, I don't know.
Dog.
We have a pure-bred Finnish Lapphund, Margaret.
I hope you've had it immunised.
Hm.
Has he had his shots? You should have asked that before you stole him.
I didn't steal him.
You gave him to Angie.
He's fully immunised.
I'm very good at taking care of things.
Which reminds me, how is my daughter? You know, if you really care about her, you'll leave her alone.
I'm her father.
I want to be part of her life.
So we can do this the hard way, or you can start being reasonable.
You're going to the park with Rodney? Yeah.
I said he could see Angie once a week, as long as I'm there too.
Why would you agree to that? I don't have a lot of options.
Fair enough.
If I let Rodney see Angie, I'm the one that takes control, right? Right.
Yeah.
Yeah.
Maybe after a few trips to the park, he'll get over it, leave us alone.
He's bound to.
Belinda, hi, I went through the clinical trials and I've emailed you my recommendations.
Thanks.
Oh, and I'm probably having a baby.
See, I thought you'd do that, treat it like it's a big deal which it isn't.
It's my brother's baby.
- Your brother's? - Not my egg.
I'm the surrogate.
The only reason I told you is because I didn't want you to find out and think it's a big deal, which it isn't.
- It's pretty big.
- No, it's not.
They'll pop the embryo in, I'll pop it out when it's ready and I'll be back at work the next day.
You'll be exhausted.
- No, I won't.
- And distracted.
- What do they call it again? - Baby brain.
I don't think that's a medical term.
I will be as professional as ever.
(PHONE RINGS) Oh.
Sorry.
It's my husband.
Do you mind if I? Is it urgent? According to research, children from larger families are more independent and have better social skills.
Can you just think about another child? Absolutely not.
- Where were we? - I'm presenting to the board.
I need your input.
Resources, staff, patient ratios, etc.
- 3:00? - Perfect.
I can't.
I've got an appointment.
For baby? I mean, that's likely to happen over the next nine months.
- I'm completely free tomorrow.
- Tomorrow is too late.
- See you at 3:00.
- Look forward to it.
I think it's really admirable what you're doing for your brother.
It's a huge sacrifice.
Guess what? She got it.
Great.
What's this? It's just this job, dental assistant, but they're going to pay - for the rest of my TAFE course.
- Congratulations.
That's great.
Are you sure you're OK with looking after Sam? It's a lot to ask.
He's my grandson.
He's easy.
You brought a friend.
Yeah.
He's I think he's a little bit sick.
Can you have a look at him? I'm a nurse.
- Yeah.
- I deal in humans.
Isn't that the same thing? I mean, he cries all night and I end up having to let him sleep in my bed.
Maybe you should try control crying.
That's what we do with human babies.
I'd better get to TAFE.
But it was good seeing you, Justin.
Maybe we should take the kids to the beach sometime.
Yeah.
I'm off women at the moment.
I think what he means is he's having trouble with his daughter, so Have you had him de-sexed? It might be why he's playing up.
Maybe you should cut his balls off.
De-sexing a dog can calm it down.
You cannot de-man him.
It's not right.
Frankie didn't even mean it.
She was just upset.
She invited you to the beach and you bit her head off.
I'm sure she understands.
She knows you're having a rough time of it.
I need to concentrate on Angie, you know? Here they are.
- Hi.
- Hey.
Does Sam look happy to you? Sammy, how was your day? - He said he doesn't like school.
- It's only day one.
Atticus had a great first day.
And Sam? - He hated it.
- He didn't say that.
I'm the best reader in my class.
Good for you, Atticus.
Sam doesn't even know his red words.
We all learn at a different pace.
- Can we play handball? - Five minutes.
You didn't tell me you're P and C president, Lewis.
- I'm coming to the meeting tonight.
- Oh? Good.
To talk about a gifted and talented program.
I can't believe we don't have one.
Well, we've got violin first.
Learning an instrument is very important for gifted children.
Lets him extend himself without getting too far ahead of his peers academically.
OK.
Hi, Aunty Heather.
We're at school and I'm the principal.
- Sorry, Miss Looby.
- Alex tells me you're putting off - telling Stella about the surrogacy.
- I'm not putting anything off.
This is my future great-niece or -nephew we're talking about.
This is something to celebrate, not hide.
But I'm not hiding anything.
Some issues are difficult to explain to a ten-year-old.
Like I say to all parents, discussing sexual reproduction is only awkward if we make it awkward.
True.
- You're very awkward.
- I'll keep that in mind.
- Lewis, Gemma.
- How's Sam doing? He's a long way behind the other children.
He had glue ear.
It's affected his hearing.
And compromised his learning, I know.
All understandable.
But I am concerned.
Sam is in Year 1, but he hasn't reached the benchmarks of a child in Prep.
It says here, "Surrogacy should be a considered and informed decision.
" You're the one who wanted to do this in the first place.
I changed my mind.
Look, even if we weren't having Kane's baby, we couldn't have one of our own.
We're at maximum capacity.
I'm a full time doctor, you're a part-time marketing executive, we have a highly demanding nine-year-old with activities coming out of her ears and an almost-two-year-old who keeps escaping from her cot.
And we love them both.
We do.
But imagine how you would feel if they grew up to be intelligent, interesting women with great careers but their husbands kept telling them to drop all that and pump out more babies.
- I'd rather not think of that.
- You have to.
The best way to access your inner feminist is through your daughters.
Abigail, Mark.
Nice to see you.
Do we do the psych test with you, Dr Dalton? It's more of an assessment than a test, isn't it? He gets angsty about tests.
Let's just put that aside for the minute.
We need to go through the results of your blood samples.
Take a seat.
Not a problem, is there? We've screened for all the things we like to get the 'all clear' on for a future surrogate.
HIV, rubella, hep B, C, syphilis.
I presume we're fine there.
Yes.
All negative.
- Phew.
- We also do a pregnancy test.
That's putting the cart before horse, isn't it? Not really.
But they haven't put Eve's egg in there yet.
This would be your egg.
- What? - Sorry? You're pregnant.
- No She can't be.
- We use contraception.
Eight weeks.
No.
I can't be pregnant.
I'm supposed to be having my brother's baby.
IUDs are over 99% effective.
My guys got through.
Who'd have thought? Mark's army, the elite 1%, busting through the barri It's not a time to gloat, is it? Maybe we could give Kane the baby.
Abi! Well, what are we going to tell him? Maybe he's not as disappointed as you think.
Oh! He hasn't told Stella yet.
So you know how when we make a cake we mix all the ingredients together and then put it in the oven? - Yeah.
- Well, the doctors are going to grab one of Eve's eggs and then mix it with some of my Let's call it flour.
I was going to call it flour.
And then we put it in the oven.
Now, Aunty Abi is our oven.
She's going to cook our baby for us? That is so cool.
It is cool.
Now, you're all OK with that? You understand it all? Yeah.
I'm going to have a baby brother or sister.
- We're going to try.
- That is so awesome.
It is awesome.
I shouldn't have been so worried.
She was great, just really excited about having a little baby brother or sister.
That is so good.
- Is there too much? - Gyration? Way too much.
- Stell, what are you doing? - Practising our routine.
- Hey.
- Hi.
Abi, aren't you meant to be at your psych assessment? They didn't need to assess us.
I'm having a baby.
Oh, that's that's great news.
A third biological child, your very own.
Congratulations.
- It was an accident.
- Isn't nature funny? Here we are spending weeks organising a surrogate, and you guys accidentally create a whole human being on a Tuesday night after the news.
- I feel terrible.
- Don't be silly.
It's great, really.
Stella was pretty excited, so that might be tricky.
- You told her? - It's no biggie.
Did you get your make-up sheets for the concert? Red lips, gold eyeshadow, lots of mascara.
And this is the costume.
Where's the rest of it? - What? - It looks like there's more mascara - than there is costume.
- They're cowgirls.
Yeah, about that.
The song, "Giddy up! Ride! Ride! Ride!" What's it about? - A horse.
- It's not just about a horse, is it? - Sorry? - It's inappropriate.
Well, the girls seem to love it.
They love crossing the road without looking for cars, but we don't let them do that.
That's off topic.
What he means is What I meant was my ten-year-old is not going to be twerking it out half-naked in your overpriced concert.
Wuh - Yes? - We-her? We-her is not a word, Sam.
This is boring.
You need to focus.
Let's try another one.
What happened to Shuffle and Shine? Kane yelled at Miss Karley.
- No, he didn't.
- Yes, he did.
- And pulled us out.
- You what? - It was the right decision.
- Yeah, completely.
- Now we can't do the concert.
- I spent hours on that backdrop.
I hope they're going to reimburse me for the materials.
- Lewis.
Who'd like a drink? - What were you yelling about? I don't like the way they shuffle or shine.
I wish you would have told me that before I forked out the fees.
Can we jump on the trampoline? Yes, honey.
Hey, Sam, not you.
It's time to do your reading.
Oh, great.
They've managed to fit me in for a scan.
Oh, great.
Abi's pregnant.
- Already? - Her own.
Which is great.
Congratulations.
Did I mention that? A few times.
Dodged a bullet there.
- What that supposed to mean? - Just ignore what he said.
Well, now she doesn't have to do that surrogacy thing.
- That's the bullet? - It's an expression.
We are out of here.
Stella! What? I can't help it if some people are overly sensitive.
Kane said congratulations eight times.
Every time, I felt worse.
It's not like you planned it.
That's for sure.
About the whole not planning part, are you OK? Yeah.
- Abi? - Mm.
Well, that's the 'yeah' you use when you're not OK.
How are we going to do it? We'll manage.
We always do.
You do realise we're not going to see anything in this scan.
Eight weeks, it's a tiny peanut.
- Yeah, but it's our peanut.
- It is.
I willed this peanut into existence.
I'm going to take care of us.
- There we are.
See that mass there? - Yes! Our little peanut is very good-looking.
That's the IUD.
- Can you take it out? - We can take it out, yep.
Good.
It's definitely got to come out.
We don't want the little peanut to get any negative feedback.
There are risks associated with removing it.
I was worried about that.
What does that mean? I'd miscarry.
Well, it definitely should stay in.
Then the baby's got something to look at.
Sort of educational.
There is there's a high risk of infection.
- That's not good, is it? - No.
Depending on the position there's also a risk of imprint, of the IUD, on the baby.
So if we take the IUD out, we could lose the baby.
If we leave it in, there's a risk of infection or imprint.
What do we do? Is Rodney your friend? Yeah, he's kind of like a friend.
He wants to hang out.
But I'll be here too.
OK? Hey, Angie.
Hi.
Aren't you going to say hello, Daddy? Yeah.
Hi, Rodney.
Want to go on the swing, baby? - Alright, let's go.
- I can push her.
Jump on.
I want to go really high.
OK, we can go really high.
- Higher! - Higher? OK.
- Yay! - Yay! I'll be over there on the bench with Butch if you need me.
- Why's it so thick? - Sweetie Oh! Milk! Forgot to put milk in it.
Darling, sit down.
I can't bake muffins sitting down.
It's just a P and C meeting.
Other parents are probably just going to bring cheese and biscuits.
Olives.
You like olives.
Why don't we bring olives? The good mums will bake.
The good mums? What if it knows? What if? Why are you whispering? - The peanut.
- What if it knows what? That I stuck an IUD in its house and spent all day saying I didn't want it because it would stuff my career.
You didn't know the peanut was there.
It's still offensive.
What if it knows? I mean, medically speaking, that is crazy, but on another level, it might know.
Whatever happens, it's not your fault.
I think we should take the IUD out.
I know it's risky, but give the peanut the best chance.
Angie? Angie! You've called Rodney Wickham.
Leave a message.
Rachel! Hey, have you seen Angie? What? You've lost her? No, no, not really.
She was she was here a minute ago but Go and play, darling.
Mum's got to send some emails.
- Daddy! - Hey! Angie you OK? Rodney bought me an ice-cream.
Sorry we didn't get you one.
Didn't know what flavour you like.
I told you I want to be there when you're with her.
We just went to get ice-cream.
Besides, you weren't exactly looking out for her.
You were asleep.
Look.
Our doggies are friends.
- (DOGS YAP AND FUSS) - Butch! Hey! Get get off her! She's got all the parents fired up about introducing a gifted and talented program.
- Oh, great.
- Gemma.
- Abigail.
- What was that? That was because I'm depriving her of a great-niece or -nephew.
- Hey.
I've got a situation.
- What kind of situation? How old do you have to be to make you know? What? To be a dad if you're a dog? Human nurse.
Remember? - Depends.
About six months.
- What have you done? - It's not what I've done.
- Butch.
Yeah.
At the park.
Rachel was there with her Finnish Lapphund and I was just distracted - What's happened? - Hi.
Butch assaulted Margaret.
- It was consensual.
- Who's Margaret? - It's Rachel's dog.
- She didn't really see.
It was like 30 seconds, not even long enough to really kind of It wouldn't have been long enough, would it? - Humans.
- Right.
- You'd still better tell her.
- I will.
Morning.
Gifted children aren't like ordinary kids.
They need constant stimulation.
Our teachers are already extending No, not enough.
We have the funds, let's get the program.
We do have money, raised from the school fete.
But it could be used for other things.
The toilet blocks need work We also need remedial tutors for those children who need extra help.
We want to benefit all kids.
How many people here think their child is gifted and talented? There's a hidden agenda here.
Our P and C president's grandson has learning difficulties.
That's why they want the money for the remedial tutors.
Sam has hearing issues.
Maybe he should be at the special school, not here.
He's fine now.
He just needs some extra help.
Stella had trouble when she was his age, and she's going great guns now.
Yes, and those struggling children take up all the teachers' time, dragging our children down to their level.
I cannot believe I felt bad for you and your dog.
My dog? What's this got to do with Margaret? - At the park, my dog met yours.
- What are you talking about? I think one thing led to another.
Margaret was violated? Well, at least it ended the meeting.
We're voting tomorrow.
We're going to get a gifted and talented program while half the school's toilets don't flush.
And the remedial reading tutors will be off the agenda.
You need to talk everyone around.
People listen to you.
Not now.
I'm mates with the guy whose dog's up on sexual assault.
It was consensual.
Round the outside.
Round the outside and right up the middle.
Go! Yeah, that's it.
Don't let us interrupt.
The girls told me you pulled the plug on Shuffle and Shine, so we were just busting a few moves.
Can Eve look after us again? If she wants to, we'd love her to.
Hey, thank you so much for babysitting.
I just want to keep part of things, if I can.
Now that it's not happening.
- Yeah.
Sorry it didn't work out.
- Yeah.
Me too.
Congrats.
Hey, where's Stell? She's upstairs.
Hey, Stell.
What are you up to? - Do you like it? - It's gorgeous.
It's a mobile for my new brother or sister.
Oh.
I know you're only trying and it might not happen right away.
Actually, Stell, there isn't going to be a brother or sister.
- But you said.
- I know.
Sometimes things change.
But I really want one.
I'd look after it, I promise.
I know you would.
Sometimes, even if we really want something, it can't happen.
You know what's really exciting? Alex and I have you and Finn, and you guys are super-awesome.
Maybe there'll be another little baby that would like your mobile.
I tell him the words, then five seconds later he's forgotten them.
And bloody Kane.
- What's Kane done? - He ruined my P and C meeting.
You've got to stop attacking Kane because you're worried - about your grandson.
- I'm not worried about my grandson.
I'm worried I won't be able to refurbish the school toilets.
- He needs our help.
- Sam? - Of course he does.
- Kane.
What are we going to do, have his baby for him? No.
You're not.
No.
Lewis.
You've got to be kidding.
I need you to do something that's really unusual for you.
I need you to open your mind.
You cannot be serious.
I'm deadly serious.
And apart from everything else, you're well past your prime childbearing years.
Read the papers, Lewis.
Women my age are having babies all the time.
It's Eve's egg.
I would just be carrying it, that's all.
What about Kane's contribution? What about it? You'll have Kane's seed inside you.
What do you mean, Kane's seed? It's IVF.
They fertilise the egg and they implant the embryo.
Yeah, but it's still other people's bits inside my wife.
Where's that leave my equipment? I was kind of hoping your equipment might be generous and mature enough to cope.
Well, it's not.
This is not happening, Gemma.
There are risks involved with any birth, health issues.
- I was fine with Tilda.
- This is totally different.
I hope you haven't said anything to Kane, gone and promised something I would never agree to.
- No, I haven't.
- Good.
You won't even consider it? - No! - I'm going to go and check on Abi.
What's wrong with Abi? It's a fairly quick procedure.
They'll remove the IUD and hopefully not disturb the peanut in the process.
We'll be good.
Hey.
Hey! I know you said don't tell anyone but I just told him.
- You alright? - Yeah.
- Kane? - He's your brother.
I had to tell him.
I only popped in to say good luck.
I hope you don't mind.
I brought I won't stay long.
I just want to give you these.
Angie picked them.
Thanks.
Abigail, can you slip into a gown now please? We'll give you a call, let you know how it goes.
(PHONE RINGS) - Frankie.
- Don't panic, but we're in Emergency.
Thank you so much.
I am so sorry to have bothered you.
Stop apologising.
He's a great kid.
Bye.
False alarm.
He woke up this morning complaining that his ears were killing him but the doctor couldn't find anything.
Eventually we got it out of him, he was faking.
- What? - Yeah, to get out of school.
He says they tease him because he's struggling.
Well, he can stay at home with me.
We'll work on his words.
Actually, he he doesn't want to stay with you either.
I know you're just trying to help, but he says you get angry when he gets the words wrong.
He's probably just being over-sensitive.
Patience isn't Lewis's strong point.
I'll look after him.
We can try school again tomorrow.
Come on, Sam.
How are you feeling? - Good.
- It's done, and it went well.
- But now we have to wait.
- Mm.
We'll do another scan tomorrow to check the baby hasn't been disturbed.
It's hard, but try not to worry in the meantime.
Come on, buddy.
Sam OK? - Here we go.
- Yeah, he's fine.
There you go.
You think he knows what he's in for? What's the process? Well, there's a small incision made in front of the scrotum, then basically both testes are completely removed.
(DOG WHINES) It's a general anaesthetic, mate.
He won't feel a thing.
You know, I remember Stella didn't want to go to school because she was having trouble with her school work.
It's normal.
You know what, Kane? I don't want to hear what YOU think is normal.
What's that supposed to mean? Your idea of normal and my idea of normal are completely different things.
You want to put eggs and bits in other people.
You're not a very good judge of what's normal.
Come on, boys.
You have real issues with this surrogacy thing, don't you? - Yeah.
I do.
- Why? You want me to say it? You can wave your rainbow flag around as much as you like, but two men can't conceive.
Fact.
We're two men and a lesbian with a unicornuate uterus but we're aware of the facts, thanks.
So stop making out it's my responsibility - to do something about it.
- I'm not! - Good, cos I'm not gonna.
- Nobody asked you.
Gemma did.
BOTH: She what? So now I have to be the bad guy.
Luckily, you're very good at it.
I just wanted to say thank you.
I just wish I could help, I really do.
But there's no way I could do it without Lewis's backing.
I know, and I wouldn't let you.
Well, I'm sorry.
He's just so Lewis.
Hey, it's not meant to be, and I'm cool with that, honestly.
I'm I'm grateful that you tried, and it's time to move on.
- Have you tried any games with him? - Thanks.
Thanks, Jasmine.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Sit.
All in? - What are you doing here? - I thought Angie might like another ice-cream.
- It's a great day for the park.
- Yeah, we did that yesterday.
- Yeah.
So? - We said once a week.
- No, you said once a week.
- You agreed.
Mate, if you're not going to be a bit more flexible than that, I'm going to have to push for a more permanent arrangement.
And you're not going to like that, are you? Because the last time we went to court, it didn't work out that well for you, did it? Go your hardest.
Kids, who wants tacos? Me! Dad, is Mum angry with you? No.
Why? She looked cross this morning.
Is it because you're a stubborn Neanderthal? No.
Who says that? Mum, all the time.
Look.
There's Miss Dubb, my Year 1 teacher.
G'day.
- Mum, guess what.
We saw Mrs Dubb.
- Oh.
Yeah, and guess where Mrs Dubb was heading.
Next door, to coach Atticus Hilton.
She said he has maths and English tutoring five times a week.
That kid's not gifted and talented.
He's hot-housed.
Grandpa Lewis, I know my sight words.
- She.
- KANE: Good boy! Take it out now.
And I know he, how, when.
And I know where.
I'm up to my blue words.
That is great.
Well done, Sam.
Well, we've got a P and C meeting to get to.
See you there.
- Nice playing with you, Sammy.
- Bye.
Today's vote is about a gifted and talented program.
It's a system from Years 1 to 6 where one class will be labelled gifted and talented.
If we label one bunch of kids gifted and talented, what sort of message are we sending the others? That they're not? Because I reckon they are, all of them, and they need to be told.
With the help of some amazing parents and teachers, and a strong sense of belief, these kids can achieve anything they want.
And so what Miss Looby and I are proposing is that we use the funds we've raised to bring in teachers' aides on a weekly basis to take out those kids that want to talk about Pythagoras, and the few that struggle to write their own names, and work with them at their own level, quietly, no labels, no big deal.
Six is very young to decide if a kid belongs in a gifted class, especially if the only reason he's there is because of the maths coaching he's getting.
So I'm asking you to vote.
Teachers' aides to help every kid or a gifted and talented scheme that labels our children.
Show of hands for teachers' aides, no to G and T.
That's settled then.
- And the toilets need fixing.
- (LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE) Good speech.
Fancy president garbage.
No, you care.
You've been sprung caring again.
Even if you are a stubborn Neanderthal.
Tilda says that's my new nickname.
It's not new.
Maybe I overestimated you, but I know you care about Kane.
Kane was an accident.
He was foisted upon me.
He's Mark's brother-in-law.
I never chose him.
- You've kept him for four years.
- So? So I think you've had a bit of time to wriggle out of the friendship.
He hung around so much I just had to put up with him.
We have absolutely nothing in common.
We never have.
Except that you'd do anything for each other.
At least that's what I thought, until today.
You and I we trust to say I'm sorry For the light I lost pay with nothing But the time Trust Wait a minute There's hope.
Hey, guys.
The other kids are upstairs.
Hey, what I said the other day about being off women - It's fine.
- It was rude.
I've had all this stuff going on with Angie and Rodney wants to take me to court.
- That's terrible.
- Yeah.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi.
You guys know each other? Yeah, you work with Gemma, right? She doesn't have to work today, does she? No.
No, no, I'm here to steal Frankie.
- Oh.
- We're going to grab a bite to eat.
Sounds like a really nice idea.
- Hey.
Sorry.
We were out the back.
- Hey.
Hi.
- Saxon.
- Yeah, he's here.
Such good news.
Poppy! Is Stella here yet? Can we start? We will in a minute.
Let's wait till everybody gets here.
Come inside.
The kids are putting on a concert.
Do you want to see that before we go? - Yeah.
Do you mind? - No.
Give us a hand with this, will you? Look at that.
Fits perfectly.
Kids haven't done a bad job.
Not as good as mine.
So I've changed my mind.
I'm always going to think it's weird, putting babies into other people.
But I'm going to help you out.
No.
Seriously? Don't hug me, Kane.
(GROANS) This is awful.
- Oh! - What are they doing? Disco by my window World slows down as it goes Goodbye to last night Lost love out of sight Can't you help me see Love you every minute cos you make me feel so alive alive Love you every minute cos you make me feel so alive alive.
