- How about a photo, boys? - Yeah.
Yeah? Ferg, put your book down.
That's it.

Put your arm round him.
Fergus, smile.
Mum, come take a picture of us two.

MUSIC: 'Static' by Beth Orton & Toydrum So, I was on the edge like this, and then he pushed me.
- Little Fergus? - He did.
And then I went over.
I don't believe you.
He did.
And then I went down, down, down.
Er, wait.
Come on.
Up you go.
Good boys.
Right, come on, boys.
We're gonna be late.
Hurry up! Here we go.
Have we got everything? Mum, I can't find my book bag! Well, if you keep your room tidy, it wouldn't be a problem.
- Found it.
- Come on.
Quick sticks.
[MAN CHUCKLES.]
Look at you.
You got my vote.
Right, I'd better get going.
I've got work to find, eh? - Good luck.
- Good luck.
- See you.
- See you later.
Right, quick sticks.
Here you go, poppet.
Mum, do I really have to go to school looking like this? Love, you look great, come on.
I mean, who even is Tiberius Claudius? - BOY: Did you swallow any water? - SAM: Loads.
- [PHONE RINGS.]
- Were you really scared? Yeah, really scared.
I felt really, really heavy.
I just thought I was gonna die.
Hey, I'm driving.
Talk to your sister.
You forgot her ingredients for food tech.
What? She says she told you twice and reminded you yesterday.
Oh, well, I'm gonna have to drop it off, then.
But tell her that next time she's got to write it down.
She's got to She's got to write it on the calendar.
Write it on the calendar.
Oh, for God's sake.
Told you, it's Dress Up For History Day.
We've only just had World bloody Book Day.
Mum, that was last term.
Morning, ladies.
Hi, guys.
Wow, Fergus, you look amazing.
Here's Sam's clothes.
Oh, thanks.
Gosh.
Ironed.
He won't know what's hit him.
- Right, I'd better go.
Here you go.
- Love you.
- Love you, too.
- See you later.
Just concentrate on your spellings, OK? Yeah? - Erm, Kate.
- Yeah.
I just wanted to say I'm sorry again about yesterday.
Honestly, Sam can hardly be blamed for falling in.
I know, but it must have caused you so much stress.
After you gave him such a lovely day out.
I feel terrible.
No, no, no, don't be silly.
If anyone should feel bad, it's me.
- Just forget about it.
- Thanks.
Actually, Lisa, do you fancy a coffee at the Swan? Oh, I'd love to, but I'm rushed off my feet.
I would actually quite like to.
We really need to talk about our boys.
Um I can move things around.
I've just got to drop a couple of dogs off.
That's great.
See you in a bit.
OK, we're done.
How does that feel? Good.
Great, in fact.
Thank you.
I'll let you get dressed.
- I only want to see Roz.
- You could see Gary.
Gary could see you in ten minutes.
No, no.
I only ever see Roz.
I don't want to see anybody else.
I followed her here from a previous practice.
All set? Er I don't want to pry, Roz, I don't know how you ended up here.
You built up a terrific business in Bowness.
If I can help in any way - I thought we were friends.
- You're my client, Scott.
Yeah.
Fergus has had such a rough deal Mm, with his eye? Mm.
In awe of your Sam, Mr Popular.
Yeah, Sam's just very energetic.
I hope you don't think I'm being overdramatic, but I'd want to know if it were one of mine.
What? I don't want to use the "B" word.
It's It's not physical, the bullying.
Oh, God, what's he done? He calls Fergus "Cyclops.
" You know, the one-eyed monster from Greek mythology.
Right.
- Really? - You're not cross I said, are you? - No, of course not.
- I try and tell him to ignore it.
"Sticks and stones," I keep saying, but No, I'll I'll talk to him.
Thanks.
Thanks.
I knew you'd get it.
I told Guy, Lisa will understand, she's one of us.
Mum, a note from Joanne.
"Don't go in, I smell gas.
"Come to mine.
" Hiya.
Abby, go in there.
Chocolate biscuits, you know where.
- Yum.
- Thanks, Joanne.
I'll call Transco.
Look, I don't want to give Abby a shock, but the bailiffs came this morning.
Bailiffs? [SHE SIGHS.]
Erm OK.
I know.
We'll just grate some cheese on top for a bit of protein.
- Right? - Vegan means no dairy.
There's peas.
Help yourself, everyone.
Chips are a real treat, honestly.
Oh, my God, you're such a suck-up.
Well My mum says that icing sugar covers up a multitude of sins.
- Does she? - Mm-hm.
She comes up with all sorts of fucking shit.
She just said the "F" word.
She just said the "F" word! - Sam! - Fuck! Fuck! Oh, wow.
Dad's home.
Steady on.
Wet paint alert.
- You got a job? - Just for today.
How much? £50, cash in hand.
But the bloke I was working for was looking to get rid of this.
So I made a deal with him and I thought I could teach you how to play.
What do you reckon? - Good.
- Put that over there.
Put your hand underneath.
Worth a lot more than £50, this.
Bailiffs came today.
- What do you mean? - The loan.
We missed a payment.
But er you wrote them that letter, didn't you? Asking for the extension? All right, I'll take the sax back in the morning.
But you're seeing Pete tonight, aren't you? How's work? You look stressed.
No, no, no, it's fine.
And my gorgeous little niece? Abby's great.
She's really great.
And Winston had a day's work today, but it's Hmm.
- Pete.
- Roz, let's not ruin tonight by talking about Winston or money.
OK, right, I'm here on kind of like a secret mission.
To pinch some of their recipes for the cafe.
This is my treat.
OK? Ah, it's Louise and Scott.
Absolutely lovely.
Loaded.
She's just joined my book club.
Hello.
How are you.
Louise.
Scott.
- This is my sister, Roz.
- Hi, Roz.
Hello.
Hello again.
Roz is my physio.
You know, the one I'm always raving about.
- Of course.
Good to meet you.
- And you.
Do you know, I can't get past the first 100 pages.
- Really? - I I'm glad I ran into you.
I think I forgot to pay for my treatment.
Oh, you can't pay me direct anymore.
But I can sort it for you.
Well maybe I did pay for it.
Hang onto it anyway.
Think of it as a tip.
And, honestly, you'll fall in love with them all as I did.
- Shall we eat? - Yes.
- Lovely seeing you.
- Yeah, you, too.
- Small world.
- Small world.
What are we having? [SAX PLAYING.]
Is it too loud? Cos I've got my little muffler.
No.
It's nice.
You should keep it.
[KNOCKING.]
- Hi.
- Oh.
Hi.
The guy at reception said I could come through.
Yeah.
Didn't expect to see you so soon.
After last night, I mean.
Are you OK? Yesterday, the reason I pressed 50 quid on you was because I drove past your house.
I saw the bailiffs there.
Don't be embarrassed.
Poverty is not a crime.
I wasn't born rich, far from it.
You're a good woman, Roz.
I want to help you.
Look, I don't want charity.
Now, I've got a business proposition.
Well - OK.
- OK, this is unusual, but I think it could be the perfect solution for both of us.
Now, you know that I've always admired your pragmatic approach to business.
Now, I'm a happily married man, I love Louise, but she doesn't fulfil my needs.
- Hang on.
What? - I know.
I know.
It sounds shocking.
I'm looking for a discreet physical arrangement.
So have an affair.
No, that's the point.
They're messy.
And people get hurt.
This is different.
It's a business arrangement, that's all.
[PEN SCRATCHING.]
I've I've written down a figure.
Just think about it.
Sam, come on, hurry up.
We're gonna be late.
Oh, come here.
Come here.
Arm, arm, arm.
All right.
Remember, you've got to play with Fergus today.
- No-one likes him.
He's weird.
- Sam! - And he pushed me in.
- We do not call our friends names - and we don't make up stories.
- He's not my friend.
And you don't give me that look.
Come on.
Breakfast.
Dad could have given me a backie on his bike, but he's not really reliable in the mornings.
So has he got any work at the moment? No.
He's creative.
And how is your mum? We haven't had a proper catch-up in ages.
Busy.
She's always working.
- She says thanks for taking me in.
- Oh, any time.
God.
You're welcome any time.
Mum didn't have time to do me a cake.
It's all right, Abby.
You can share mine.
- OK, walk slowly.
- Hold it firmly.
Walk towards Miss King.
- There you go.
- Off you go.
- Have a lovely day.
- Steady, Ferg.
Both hands, my love.
Both hands.
Wow, that's a cake.
Stunning.
Look, I've been meaning to ask you and your husband round for supper.
- Um - No, nothing too formal.
Just Just a kitchen supper.
So we can get to know each other as families.
Yeah, we'd - We'd love that.
- Great.
Thanks.
[HE WHISTLES.]
- What? - It's that suit.
- It drowns you.
- I told you, I bought it for driving people to funerals Yeah, well, we're going shopping now that we are going to fancy dinner parties.
Oh, I feel weird in a dress.
- Look at that view.
Amazing.
- Do I look all right? Do I look good enough? - For me or for them? - Oh, please, will you just make an effort for me? I'm here, aren't I? Huh? [KNOCKING.]
Ah, the Kallistos.
Come in.
Come in, please.
Welcome.
Hey.
- Hi.
- Good to see you.
Nice to see you, too.
I'm so sorry again about the other day.
I'm so embarrassed my klutz of a son making you dive in Ah, please, my big Baywatch moment? - It's Joe, isn't it? - Hi.
I'm Guy.
Good to see you.
Come on, let's go.
In you come.
Lisa, the girls are in the kitchen.
Joe, follow me.
I've got some beers for us.
Are you a glass or a tankard kind of chap? - KATE: Yeah, it's the er - It's yummy.
It is yummy.
I would have said more fruity.
It is a Loire at the end of the day.
Hi.
Wow.
My gosh.
You look amazing.
I love that dress.
This is gorgeous.
Thank you.
You know my sister, Alexa? - Hey, I'm Lisa.
- Lisa, you kindly have our dogs when we go skiing.
I don't know about kindly.
It's more of a business.
Yes, of course, a working mummy.
- White OK? - Oh, thank you.
- Do you have children? - Yes, four.
They board.
You've got four at boarding school? - Yes.
Yes.
We are very fortunate.
- Wow.
What she means is that Adam is a very successful cosmetic surgeon.
She's just jealous.
Not at all.
We're quite happy with the local schools.
- Aren't we, Lisa? - Yeah, I really like them.
- Keep them close.
- Let them stand on their own two feet.
- It's good for them.
- Like it was for us.
Nothing like a little sister to press the buttons, is there? How do you know I'm older? I didn't I didn't - Cos she's so bloody bossy.
- Oh, fuck off, Kate.
Oh, no, I didn't mean that she looked older.
- No, no, no, it's fine.
She's just - menopausal! I'm devoted to her.
It looks gorgeous.
It's all gorgeous.
Thanks.
Plastic surgeon? Yeah.
Most of the stuff I do is therapeutic, you know, burns, scars, stuff like that.
But I also have a private practice.
You'd be amazed how many people want work done.
Oh, God, not me.
I'd be terrified.
No, it's really safe.
And these days, we are so good at predicting outcomes.
Are you trying to sell me a face lift? Absolutely not.
In fact, if you came in, I'd actively discourage it.
- GUY: Oh, you smooth bastard.
- It's a professional opinion.
Yeah, I can just see you in your consulting room - with all the ladies.
- Not just ladies.
I saw more men than women last week.
Adam's just done Lyn Taylor's eye bags.
But then her husband is fucking their au pair.
- You don't know that.
- Everyone knows that, Kate.
They were seen together in Grasmere.
Well, you should think about their children before starting rumours.
- Don't you think, Lisa? - Well, I don't know them, so Family has to come first.
- Little Miss sanctimonious.
- Come on, Lex.
We both know how damaging a divorce is for the children.
So we should all just stick together miserable as sin? As long as all the children are happy? - We were kids, Kate.
Get over it.
- Ugh.
I have.
For God's sake, why don't you just grow up? [CLEARS THROAT.]
Sorry about that.
Sisters.
Shall I go after them? Not if you want to keep these teeth.
See, Kate is Kate is something of a puritan.
She She doesn't get that men have needs.
And women don't? You are a breath of fresh air.
Cheers.
It's all gone very quiet.
Then we need music.
MUSIC: 'So Good' by Rubboli Can I come in? What? I wanted a word with you.
About what? You.
You're worth more than any of them.
- You're lovely.
- Adam.
Come on.
Shh! [RAIN FALLING.]
Right, I'm off.
Good night, Lulu.
Listen, they've got this huge fridge just for wine.
I mean And they knock it back, too.
And they were talking all sorts of crap as well, right, Lisa? DRIVER: Not tonight, Josephine.
Are you watching the game tomorrow, mate? Oh, yes, I'll be watching it.
Don't worry about that.
- Who do you think is gonna win? - I think Man U Christ, Winston.
Yeah, it came a couple of days ago.
I didn't want to worry you after the bailiffs had been.
When were you gonna tell me? When I'd had the chance to come up with a plan.
What possible plan? It's an eviction notice.
We've got a week to find three grand.
I don't know.
Pete or There's a new cash advances place in Kendal.
- I haven't figured it out yet.
- Is there anything else - you're keeping from me? - I wasn't keeping this from you.
You found it.
Why don't you trust me? Are you ever gonna forgive us? There you go.
Hey, April.
Hello.
[DOGS BARKING.]
Right, there you are.
[HE SIGHS.]
[SHE GROANS.]
Sore head? You were totally fucked last night.
You wouldn't even let me undress you.
Um Er I'll I'll just be a minute.
Oh, my gosh, come in, come in.
You poor drowned rat.
I just wanted to say thank you for last night.
Oh, that's so sweet.
Thank you.
Come through.
I'm just making coffee.
Oh, no, look, I'm dripping all over your beautiful floor.
- I'll get a towel.
- OK.
Do you know where you're going? - I'll find it.
- It's just top of the stairs, turn left.
What are you doing? Erm Do you know, I was looking for my earring, because I think I lost it here the other night.
I saw you last night.
You weren't wearing any earrings.
Weird child.
This is such a treat.
- I know how busy you are.
- Oh, um - Sorry, I can't stay.
- Alexa just texted me.
Apologising for the heated debate.
I mean, honestly.
Here you go.
Can I ask you something, Lisa? Does Sally hide away in her room on weekends? I don't know, I I work on weekends.
Yeah, it's such a weird age, 14, isn't it? Because, well, she's still a child, yet she's so secretive.
She's walking to school on her own now.
She's always on her phone.
I mean, I have no idea what she's up to.
And this morning, God, after she left for school, and I was putting Fergus's eye drops in, I came across the most hideous thong.
Really tarty.
And what worries me I'm so sorry.
I completely forgot.
I got to go and get a dog from the from the vet's.
Lisa.
Lisa, I am worried about you.
- You do far too much.
- No, I'm fine.
Thank you for the Thanks for the coffee.
Thanks.
With the underwear, I I wouldn't even mention it, really.
Because they're just kids, aren't they? They're experimenting.
They are trying to find themselves.
Thanks.
I'll be out in one minute, all right.
It's It's different.
Just a loan.
That's exactly what you said last time, Roz.
And next thing you know, he's at it again.
I've cut up his cards, Pete.
He's got no access to my bank account.
I've been online.
I've read all the forums about families with gamblers.
And he's going to the support group you found him.
- He's doing everything I ask him.
- Yeah, now he is.
Now, after losing my house deposit and your business.
I promise you, Pete, I swear to God, he's learned his lesson.
Families need to set boundaries, Roz, OK? It's kinder in the end.
For Christ's sake, I'm your sister.
Not some bloody case study off the internet.
Which is why I'm begging you to listen.
Roz, please, just Just? Just what? I love him, Pete.
I can't.
No more hand-outs.
Not while you're with him.
So you'd see your niece out on the street? What's that mean? Nothing.
Look, you've got a bed at ours for as long as you need it.
You know that, you and Abby.
Scott Elias is here.
But he's not got an appointment.
He's in pain again.
I thought you'd want me to squeeze him in.
I'm sorry to hear the pain is back.
It's my shoulder actually.
It's really sore.
- Could you take a look? - Slip off your shirt, then.
You can stand up.
I'm not gonna manipulate you.
- Have you thought about it, Roz? - I can't.
Please don't mention it again.
I saw you with your brother at the cafe.
You seemed upset.
You see bailiffs outside my house, and then you happen to see me and my brother today.
Are you following me? Roz, this is Windermere.
It's the world's smallest town.
I'm sorry, my My head's not on today.
I just want to help you.
I think he's about four.
SAM: Mum, there's no milk left! JAMES: Mum! - I need it way more than you.
- Er, no.
I only have a teensy bit.
I need more.
But I have absolutely none.
- You never even have milk in yours.
- Yes, definitely lethargic.
SALLY: Mum, I dropped my phone down the toilet.
It's not working.
- Sorry, can you - Mum.
- Mum! - I have none in mine! Can you speak up, please? I can't hear.
Guys, can you not see I'm on the phone to the vet? Look, do you know what? I'm going to have to call you back.
Is that all right? What is wrong with you guys? Couldn't you see I'm on the phone? Right, upstairs.
Brush your teeth.
SALLY: You never bloody listen to me.
- No, I am! - JAMES: You're so annoying.
Thank you for the help.
I've been nonstop for 12 hours.
I'm bloody knackered.
You have to do one thing.
You've got to get in a car and drive.
That's it.
You don't even have to decide where to.
Manchester Airport twice, if you're interested.
There was an accident on the M6, and the Kendal Road is buggered again.
And then what? You get in, feet up, and that's it, you're done? All right, what is it? The last few days, you've been horrible.
Well, can't you see, are you blind? Clearly.
I'm juggling too much, Joe! Then drop a fucking ball.
[SHE SIGHS.]
Go and see Sal.
She told me last night she started her periods.
What? - Have you got a pain? - A little bit.
It's horrible, isn't it? I'm sorry.
I've just been so busy lately.
Tell you what, take the day off school and we'll go and have lunch and shop.
Hang out.
Hang out? What, you don't say that anymore? Is that not cool? - No.
- All right, Netflix and chill? Oh, my God, Mum, that means something completely different.
- Does it? - Yes, entirely different.
Netflix and chill - Mum.
- Netflix and chill Oh, my God, Mum.
Right, just lift your arm for me.
And let me know when it pinches.
- It's there.
- OK.
- Can you keep going? - Yeah.
- I am so sorry.
- Call for you.
They tried your mobile.
I turn my phone off when I'm with a client.
Next time, knock.
It's your daughter's school.
Said it was important.
Recently, things have been going missing.
Stationery.
A stapler was found in a year two backpack.
I'm afraid Abby has been stealing and selling on to younger kids.
We spoke to her and she said she wanted money for our school trip.
We can look at the benevolent fund when the time comes, but as I said to your partner, we take stealing very seriously.
You spoke to Winston? Twice over the last couple of weeks.
We couldn't get through to your mobile.
Ms Toovey? What did Winston say? He rather made light of it.
Abby is a delightful child.
I I will deal with this.
I'm sorry.
Come on.
It's all right.
I'm not angry.
I just wanted to go on the school trip.
I know.
It's all right.
OK.
It's gonna be OK.
What do you think? Are they your mum or are they your mum? They really suit you, Mum.
Can we do this more often? Or, seeing as you're always working, you could just give me an allowance and I could go with my friends.
Or you could get a job? Mum, how nice is this? How much? Ten quid.
Go on.
Thank you.
[TV ON.]
'Hello, this is Winston.
'Leave a message after the tone.
' His bloody phone's off.
He's gone over to Barrow to his support group.
Well, why don't you go and see him, and I'll keep Abby for you? You two need to talk.
- Are you sure? - Yeah.
Thank you.
I really appreciate it.
What will you say to him? I don't know.
Roz, you know I've always really liked Winston.
I have, but You've given him so many chances.
You know, you've You've stood up for him.
You've forgiven him over and over again.
Careful.
You're beginning to sound like Pete.
You know he once actually asked me to make a list of Winston's pros and cons.
How long can you go on like this for? Thanks for keeping Abbs.
I won't be long.
I'm just popping out, love.
[TYRE BURSTS.]
Shit.
Christ.
You sold the spare tyre, didn't you? What do we do now? Call the RAC? Can't pay them.
Scrap the car? Can't go to work, can't earn money.
I can't even get to Barrow to talk to you, you fucking, fucking idiot! [RINGING TONE.]
Come on, Pete.
£200.
- It'll be ready tomorrow afternoon.
- Thanks.
- I'll pay you back.
- I don't want you to.
Call it a gift.
I need more, Scott.
I'm in real trouble.
My offer still stands.
See you, Mum.
Er, no.
PE kit, homework, food tech? - I've got everything.
Chill out.
- Breakfast? Sally? I'm detoxing.
Bye, Mum, don't worry.
She's detoxing [PHONE RINGS.]
Come on, then, what did you forget? [SALLY CRYING.]
Sal, what is it? 'It's Lucinda.
'She's not turned up at school this morning 'and it's your fault.
' What do you mean? 'You were meant to pick her up from school yesterday for a sleepover, 'but you gave me the day off.
' All right, well, why didn't she just call you? 'I dropped my phone, remember, and you told me to switch it off.
' - Shit.
- 'She's been gone all night, Mum.
' It's all right.
It's OK.
Calm down.
It's not your fault.
'I know that.
'I wrote it in the calendar like you told me to.
'It's your fault, Mum.
You forgot again.
' - Erm, Sal - 'I've got to go.
' Fuck.
Shit.
Please, please, please, please let her be OK.
Stupid cow.
Stupid, stupid, stupid cow.
[DOOR BELL.]
DC Joanne Aspinall.
Come in.
Just through here.
What can I do? You've done enough.
If you'd picked her up last night, she'd be here right now.
- Yeah, sorry.
- Apologising doesn't make it all right.
I know.
Seriously, who forgets a sleepover? What kind of mother are you? Please, please, just help me find her.
