Meanwhile, Peter is still up there on his cross.
On his cross.
He's climbed up there and he's found the extension lead to his fuckin' nail-gun.
At least John is OK.
Oh, John In the old days, if he was unhappy, he'd just punch someone at school.

It's flight.
He's running from all our shit.
Towards the worst, worst man .
I know.
He'll be back.
He's just like his mum.
All he wants is to fall into the arms of a man who'll tell him everything's gonna be all right.
Everything is going to be all right.
