1 Open one of those for us.
You know you're the only one who can stand these things? They're the only things left.
[MAN.]
The pigs have all gone.
Used to be full of pigs, that.
Yeah, that and pig shit.
- Dogs took care of them.
- Don't think I could hack being a pig.
- [WOMAN.]
I don't think you could either.
- [MAN.]
What's so bad about being a pig? It's undignified.
Undignified? Walking about with your nose the same height as your asshole.
- [SNIFFS.]
Snout.
- [MAN 2.]
What's that? Pigs have snouts, not noses.
So it would be your snout the same height as your asshole.
Nose, snout.
You're still trotting about gazing up everybody else's assholes all day long.
What kind of society is that? An equal one? [MAN.]
So what do you reckon? Yes or no? I can give it a go.
You're not gonna be long? Five minutes, max.
[MAN 2.]
Oh, fucking hell.
This is mental, this is.
I mean, he's dying anyway.
Well, he is.
I mean, it's not like it's gonna save him.
He's got, what, days? Well, if it's what's in there makes those days easier that'll do for me.
I promised my sister we'd help him.
We all promised her.
Plus there'll be other stuff in there.
Batteries.
- All sorts.
- OK.
OK.

- Five minutes? - [MAN.]
No more.
All right? [MAN.]
You sure it's gonna be in there? Course I'm not sure.

Get him something that might help.
I know he's in pain.

And I'm figuring it can lock onto this signal, so I'm gonna have to go dark.
It's, um It stuck me with a tracker, but I managed to get it out.
I'm gonna have to find somewhere overnight to hide out, I Get some medical stuff or something.
If I don't make it back will you pass a message to Graham? [CRIES.]
