The Kick Inside

1 What is this place? No-one comes here.
You look beautiful.
That's my mum's.
What if something should happen to the baby? Maybe we shouldtell someone that we're here.
Everything you need is right here.
Isaac! Look, I-I didn't kill him! It's me.
You remember that, right? And I know about Annie, your mum.
Thank you.
Thank you.
What are you doing? There's no-one at the farm.
They've cleared out.
No idea where.
What did she say in the message? That she didn't feel safe.
That she needed my help.
She sounded terrified.
What will happen to the baby if she reverts to her own age? She'll have to come back for more.
I think I saw Herb.
Yesterday when I dropped his jacket back.
He wasn't in his wheelchair.
What the hell, Dave? You can't be here, mate.
You're still suspended Zacky? Isaac! Honey? The national anthem of Hungary.
Whatever they say about me I want you to know I didn't do it.
But I'd never, ever do that to you.
Who Who are you? Rhonda! What is it? - It's Griffo.
- What? He's, um I need you to come down to the station.
Yes? - Can I help you? - Um Frank Warlie? Yes.
35th Squadron? Yes.
I'm .
er .
I'm with the RAAF Ex-Servicemen Association.
I'm here to return your jacket.
If this was yours.
Ah Ha! Good heavens! Um Come in, come in.
It's so weird, isn't it? I never needed to worry.
Everything's as it should be.
Sweetheart? Gwennie? Hey.
Is that a cramp? - Is it the baby or? - I don't know.
- Do you need another one? - I don't know.
I don't know.
- I don't know.
- The plant.
Where is it? I can't help you unless you tell me.
Loris, where's Herb? This can't be part of God's plan.
The plant, Loris, where is it? Please.
It's for Gwen.
I know.
She was here.
Oh, God.
This doesn't make sense.
Why would she do this? She didn't.
I did.
Why would you do it? Because it's an abomination.
Does Gwen know about it? That it's dead? No.
You sure you want to do this now? Is this David Griffiths? I'll give you some time.
No, things weren't good between us.
Not for a long while.
There's a lot I didn't believe him about.
Do you recognise him? Did he have something to do with? Griffo was investigating a link between him and this man.
Did he mention anything about either of them? You stay in here as long as you like.
What is it? Isaac.
- Is this the man you saw? - Yes.
He was tied up in that chair.
And Griffo was right there.
I think we found our lead suspect.
We need to clear everyone out.
This is before the Tet Offensive, of course.
Our boys knew the Viet Cong wanted Khe Sanh to give them an invasion route in the northern provinces.
That way they could outflank US positions south of the DMZ.
I can't believe you know all this.
Strangest thing.
You're the dead ringer of an old mate of mine.
That right? Or might be the old mind is playing tricks again.
Oh! I haven't even offered you a cuppa! I'll get it.
- Oh.
Would you mind? - Not at all.
- Milk, with - Two sugars.
My wife was a great hostess.
Me, I'm hopeless.
Your wife, is she Oh, gone to God.
Long time ago now.
I'm sorry.
You're wasting your time.
It's gone.
Been ripped out.
Where's Gwen? She rang me, desperate for help.
No, she didn't.
She's fine.
She's more than fine.
It's OK.
It's OK.
Everything's gonna be OK.
I promise.
I promise.
Here you go, Frank.
Thank you, son.
I think this milk's a bit off.
No, I think it's fine.
Old tastebuds aren't what they used to be.
Nothing is.

No, I must have I must have hit my head.
You knew it was me, didn't you? When I opened the door.
I could always read your face.

It's a second chance, I guess.
And I don't know how it works or whether we're imagining the whole thing but .
we can be us again.
I don't know what's going on, or what you've done to me but you need to go.
