Curfew (2019) s01e08 Episode Script

Episode 8

1 RADIO PRESENTER: There are still eight vehicles left in the race so it's anyone's guess who's going to win.
What we know for sure is that the superbike is in pole position and is a little under 90 miles from the finish line.
But it's already 5:30am.
It means that dawn is coming and that the race is surely entering its final stage.
If it's anything like last year's RADIO FADES - WIND HOWLS Want me fill her up? You do food? I can probably get something together.
Won't be cheap though, on account of the race.
I'll be happy to pay a premium.
Full Scottish or continental? Is there a vegetarian option with the Full Scottish? I could do you a few extra beans.
Extra beans sound good.
How d'you like your eggs? I do scrambled, boiled or fried.
DEVICE BEEPS Hey, boss.
Your eggs scrambled, boiled or fried? Fried.
You're the guy the one who owns the island.
You're the guy who was asking about the eggs.
Over easy or sunny side up? Sunny side up.
MUSIC: "Loving You" by Minnie Riperton - And breathe out two, three, four, y'know.
- SHE PANTS Feels like I'm trying to shit out a fucking football.
That is not a good visual image.
- No one else can make me feel CHEESE: Oh, look, fuel! Listen, maybe we should pull over.
No way.
We can still catch up with them.
The engine could cut out any minute.
I'm being serious, we're running on fumes right now.
SHE WAILS - Live each day in springtime Cos lovin' you - Yeah? OK.
SHE GROANS Shall I fill her up? Yeah, man.
To the brim, yeah.
Listen, I'm just gonna see what they've got in the way of snacks, d'you want anything? OK.
Just keep having a baby, yeah.
MUSIC: "Guitars, Cadillacs" by Dwight Yoakam And cry myself to sleep You showed me how this town can shatter dreams Another lesson about a naive fool that came to Babylon Found out that the pie - CHEESE: Mmm.
UNIT BEEPS The only thing that keeps me hanging on Yo, listen, I don't wanna be rude, but do I know you from somewhere? You Kamil's friend, innit? That's it.
You're the guy from that advert.
What was it about? Holidays or something.
It wasn't an advert.
- DOOR OPENS What the fuck, Cheese? Just pick up your shit.
We're leaving.
I hate to be the one to say this but you're not going anywhere.
Who's gonna stop me? LARSSEN: Your water is broke.
CHEESE ON RADIO: Calling all racers, man, I repeat, this is an emergency situation.
We need help.
A baby is coming, and it's coming right now.
I'm sorry, Mum, but you need to worry about your own children.
Last time we pulled over, we nearly all got killed.
She's right.
Think about all the people that died so we could get this far.
We kinda owe it to them to keep going.
We're so close to the end.
She's also a total fucking bitch by the way.
I swear to God, she'd do anything to make sure she wins.
This isn't about her.
It's about her baby.
Babies are like stardust.
In a world filled with so much pain and suffering they are the one thing that's totally pure.
We're pulling over.
COUNTRY MUSIC PLAYS What is it? What? They don't leave before we do.
You do whatever you have to.
JENNY: Is she inside? - CHEESE: Yeah, yeah.
MEGAN: Can I help you? Yeah, I was just wondering if I could be of, like, assistance in any way.
We are in direct competition with you.
Stay away from us.
- OK.
Alright, alright.
MEGAN MUTTERS: Oh, fuck's sake.
That was really rude, Meg.
Well, I'm sorry but if we actually want to win this race we might have to be rude sometimes.
Those two cars are racing which means if we leave now, we'd be in first place.
You need to tell Mum to get back in the car.
- SODA FIZZES ROMAN: OK, OK, fine.
Whatever.
CHEESE: Here we go.
Here we go - GUN COCKS MEGAN: Put it down.
Uh I don't want your help.
I just want to go back to my car.
You're not in any position to move right now.
The baby's gonna come out whether you like it or not.
FAITH GROANS Y'know you're four times more likely to get shot if you carry a loaded weapon.
Roman, I'm your sister and I love you but you really need to stop being such a nerd sometimes.
ROMAN: I just don't think there's any need for any lethal force.
- HORN HONKS Wait, wait, wait! Shoot me instead.
Don't shoot my friend.
No one is shooting anyone.
Have you ever fired a gun before? It is a lot harder than it looks.
- Everyone stay right where they are.
Grab their keys.
Why? He was trying to fuck us over.
Just do it.
FAITH: Oi! That's my fucking driver! She's so aggressive, fam.
MEGAN: Get in the car, Mum, we're going.
JENNY: Meg.
I want you to put the gun down.
If either of you pull the trigger, we'll all die.
He's right, Meg.
Petrol's a highly flammable substance.
I'm not talking about that.
I've got mooks for neighbours.
You fire that gun, they'll all be coming for tea.
Look, whatever Cheese did, I'm sure he is sorry.
Say you're sorry, Cheese.
I cannot say how sorry I am, man.
It was unsportsmanlike.
Quite frankly, degenerate behaviour.
This isn't you, Meg.
- We can't trust these people.
Why don't you put the gun down, alright? No one's gonna do anything stupid here.
Why don't you just pass the gun to Zane? And then he can take over.
Can't you, Zane? JENNY: Sweetheart, we're so close to the end.
Look, I know what you've been through tonight.
You've lost your dad.
But this isn't the right thing to do.
Look, you're not gonna shoot a pregnant woman so why don't you just put the gun down, sweetheart? Lady, we got this.
There is a long list of things you do not do and right at the top of that list is you do not point guns at pregnant women.
JENNY: Darling, please.
EL CAPITANO BURPS - GUNSHOTS GUNSHOTS HANMEI: Mum Mum! JENNY WAILS JENNY WAILS HYSTERICALLY: Meg! SHE SCREAMS Darling! Oh, my God no ROMAN: Meg? JENNY WAILS: Meg! LARSSEN: How about that? NEARBY CREATURE SNARLS You all need to get inside! They're on their way.
NEARBY CREATURE GROWLS JENNY: I remember the first time I held you.
We were at the South London & Maudsley.
First thing your dad did was count your fingers and thumbs.
Just to make sure nothing was missing.
And then he put you in my arms.
And I said to myself "I'm not going to let anything hurt you.
Ever.
" I've let you down, haven't I? SHE SOBS There's nothing you could have done, Mum.
I think she's gone.
SHE SOBS - I HANMEI: Come on, let's get you in the car.
BIKER GASPS BIKER RASPS AND CHOKES HE GASPS AND STUTTERS ZANE: You need to HE GROANS KAYE: What happened, Zane? Can you hear me? FAITH WAILS FAITH WAILS - DOG BARKS Come on, boy.
No.
No, Michael.
No-no-no, look GUNSHO MAC: In! Get in! Come on.
LOCKS AND BOLTS CLANK FAITH MOANS Welcome to the party.
There's not enough meat out there to keep them busy for long.
How far apart are your contractions? FAITH: Fuck knows! - CHEESE: Every couple of minutes at the moment, yeah.
- KAYE: Then we need to get you ready.
What's he doing here? That is what I would like to know.
Y'know, it's one thing to sit on your island, sipping cocktails while the world goes to hell - see, I don't mind that.
You can even devise some insanely dangerous race just because it amuses you I'm OK with that too.
But to have the temerity to enjoy it while kids get mowed down right in front of you? That Man, that just crosses the invisible line, now, doesn't it? The whole point of the race is to see who's willing to cross that line.
Yeah, is it? - LARSSEN: The outbreak, the curfew I was the one who saw it coming.
Like Noah before the flood, so I built my ark and I invited the great and the good to join me on my island where we would sit out the storm and inherit a new Eden.
But do you know what I realised? There was a flaw in my selection process.
The thing that mankind needed most wasn't the greatest minds.
It was survivors.
FAITH GROANS FAITH GASPS CREATURE RASPS JOKER: I got one more question for you.
Can you give me - NEARBY CREATURE SNARLS one good reason why I shouldn't throw you out that door right now? LARSSEN: You think you're angry with me, but you're not.
You're angry with what's happened to the world.
You all are.
Otherwise you wouldn't be here right now.
- NEARBY THUD The real danger isn't the creatures.
It's the over-reaction to them.
NEARBY BANG - It's the way society's changed because of the way our fear has been manipulated and used against us.
NEARBY CLATTER - That's why you're racing.
And right now your only option is to get back in the race.
NEARBY THUD - Cos it's the last chance you've got.
THUD This place is overrun with creatures.
How are we supposed to get back to our cars? - No one said it would be easy.
NEARBY THUD CLATTER THUD Yo, yo.
I've I think I got an idea, you know.
THUD El Cap.
Chicken run.
EL CAPITANO GASPS Oh, fuck-fuck-fuck-fuck! HE LAUGHS HYSTERICALLY LARSSEN: My God, he's fast.
Not just fast.
In that suit, he's indestructible.
EL CAPITANO CLUCKS LIKE A CHICKEN EL CAPITANO: Come on then! Come and get me! Dinner time! Well, there you have it.
EL CAPITANO: Fuck! Thanks to our feathered friend, our course is clear for a final race to the finish.
You couldn't have planned it better.
You want to win, don't you? I can feel it.
I'm only here for the shits and giggles.
MAC: Everyone out now! Look, don't worry.
I'm not going anywhere.
I want you to deliver my baby.
Not here though.
You're six centimetres dilated.
I think you need to stay where you are.
You're gonna deliver my baby in the back of the ambulance.
And you're gonna drive.
Would it make any difference if I told you there is a significant risk there may be complications with this birth? - None whatsoever.
I will do whatever I have to to make sure this baby grows up in a safe environment.
So don't think for one second I won't pull this trigger.
I know it's none of my business, but there's a spot out the back where my wife is buried.
I could lay your daughter to rest there.
If you wanted to keep going.
JOKER: All this time, I thought it was a joke.
There's no punch line.
That skinny little toe-rag is right.
The world is fucked and it's gotta get a hell of a lot worse before it gets any better.
Well, come on, El Capitano.
What the hell you standing around for? We've got a race to win.
HE WHEEZES MUSIC: "The Sun Always Shines On TV" by A-Ha Touch me How can it be Believe me The sun always shines on TV Hold me Close to your heart Touch me And give all your love to me To me I reached inside myself and found Nothing there to ease the pressure Of my ever worrying mind Oh All my powers waste away I fear the crazed and lonely looks The mirror's sending me these days Oh Touch me How can it be I say we stand down.
- THEY WHIMPER Believe me The sun always shines on TV Hold me Close to your heart Touch me And give all your love to me CRASH - CROWD SCREAMS How do we make this thing go faster, Cheese? Speed's relative, man.
People always overestimate its value in this kind of situation.
I hate the stuff.
Makes me drink like a fish.
Relative velocity's what's really important here, alright? The things you want to look at in terms of increasing our velocity the rate of acceleration.
The pedal is already to the metal, buddy.
And mass as well.
Reduce your mass, increase your velocity.
Wait a minute, now he's on to something.
We gotta lighten the load.
Come on now, start bailing.
Anything that's not bolted down, I want out the window.
This beast has got to be stripped to the bones.
MUSIC: "The Sun Always Shines On TV" by A-Ha Ha! Hold me - EL CAPITANO: Come on! Close to your heart Touch me And give all your love to me - KAYE: Gonna need you to pull your legs up above your abdomen.
- Don't fuck with me.
We need to change this position of this baby otherwise the umbilical cord is gonna get compressed which will cut off the supply of oxygen to his brain.
EL CAPITANO: Woah, this is windy! CHEESE: Be careful, Cap, eh? - Don't worry.
Hold me - It's working, boys.
It's working.
Close to your heart Touch me And give all your love to me KAYE: OK, get your legs up.
That's it.
Is baby gonna be OK? Yeah, yep, he will.
But you need to do exactly what I say, OK? How about putting that gun down for me? Can you do that? FAITH: The gun stays.
Y'know I could drive a lot faster if I wasn't worried about someone getting shot.
The gun stays! - OK, OK.
FAITH GROANS Touch me And give all your love to me - EL CAPITANO: Mwah! It's all yours! HE CHUCKLES To me.
Now that's what I'm talking about.
- HE MOUTHS INAUDIBLY TYRES SCREECH Careful not to rev the engine too much.
You're doing great.
You do know how much I love you, don't you? Don't do that.
I'm not listening.
What? Talk like you're gonna die.
It's not gonna happen.
As soon as we cross that finish line there'll be a team of doctors who'll sort you right out.
They'll patch you right up, Mum.
You're gonna be OK.
LOU: Look out! ENGINE REVS - TYRES SKID LOU: First, deflate the tyres What was that, Mum? I can't hear you.
You need traction.
Try and find something.
Anything will do.
Hey, listen, I wanna I wanna say something.
You know I love you more than anything.
Mum, don't say that - Shh.
Just listen.
The only thing that really matters you.
You've got to get to the island, Hanmei.
Mum, I'm not gonna leave you.
I might be dying, but I'm still your mum and you're gonna listen.
You're gonna do what I say.
I want you to stick your thumb out and hitch yourself a lift.
HORN BLARES EL CAPITANO: Bye-bye, Lou! What do I do now, Mum? Pull over.
Get in.
FOLK MUSIC PLAYS CHEESE: Oi! - Not the hat.
The hat's non-negotiable.
Well, then our work here is done, man.
Well, the only thing that's left is this blotter of acid.
I was saving it for the finishing line but in the interest of completeness Everything's gotta go, bruv.
Whoever said winners don't do drugs? I I wasn't sure you'd pull over.
Neither was I.
JENNY: We've all lost enough.
Try under the seat.
HANMEI: What is this? - Dad's file.
Look in the back.
Your dad always had a plan.
What does it say? HANMEI: Um, "To be opened in the event of my" I can't read the last word.
Just open it.
HANMEI: It says push it.
I guess we should push it then.
HISS - THEY GASP ENGINE ROARS I can't do this on my own.
In a minute, I'm gonna need you to push but before you do that, you've gotta put the gun down.
I need Michael's help.

Hi APPLAUSE How does it feel? Pretty good, right? I bet it does.
Good driving, kid.
Thanks, Mr Larssen.
This is my sister, Meg.
She's adopted.
Well raced, "Meg".
My condolences for those who didn't make it.
So, the island's real then? You don't mean to tell me you came all this way without believing it existed, did you? W My husband told me it was real.
I wasn't sure.
The island's real, Jenny.
And I'm gonna take you to it.
BABY GURGLES I think we bonded back there.
Me and the little guy.
I'd forgotten how good that feels.
The sun on your face.
Do you really think that we can do this? After everything that's happened.
Definitely.
Going to Kiloran, attempting to synthesise an antidote from your DNA? Yeah, no, no, that's that's what I thought you meant.
GUN COCKS Thanks for the bunny.
But we're not done yet.
JOKER: What the hell is that? It's a complimentary box for next year's race.
Yeah? Why don't you stick it in your butt? THEY LAUGH - Ohhh! THEY GIGGLE - Oick! Shove it into the anus, y'know.
- Thank you very much.
Anus time, y'know.
I know how you're feeling.
I was beside you every step of the way.
I don't know No, I'm certain.
I don't think you have any idea how I'm feeling.
It hurts, doesn't it? But you have to remember, it's not about how hard you fall.
It is about how you pick yourself back up.
Yeah.
CHEESE: Oh! Holy shit! Rum and Ribena Why don't you pick yourself up off of that? MAN: Up you get.
I'm sorry, Faith.
I can't I won't do it.
I made a vow, to do whatever it takes to keep him safe.
Not this though.
I've seen what this world's like.
I've seen the way it's heading.
It's not a world I want my son growing up in.
If you didn't feel the same way deep down, you would've never entered this race.
Look at him he needs to be with his mother.
He will be.
LARSSEN: Can I interest you in a consolation prize? No, we're good, thanks.
Got better things to do.
ROMAN: Michael! Wait.
Hey.
Congratulations.
Listen, there's something I wanted to give you.
Data I downloaded from the Brookeheath server.
It's all about you.
That's how I knew who you were.
MICHAEL: My medical records I thought it could be useful.
It will be.
We should get going.
Guess you got the girl in the end.
- Yeah, speak for yourself.
Come on.
Come on! DOG BARKS Disappointed? Well, instead of going to a paradise island in the Pacific we are going to a derelict medical facility.
Why would I be disappointed? BABY GURGLES This is Simon.
We were expecting someone a little older.
