The Seduction

Well, that's where they're gettin' in.
- That should be nailed down.
- Usually is.
They'll be coming up from that old biddy's downstairs.
You know what? Revolts me how some people live.
What, Mrs Coneybear? You're kidding.
That place is spotless.
Even the rubbish bin's got a doily under it.
What a waste! She's been eaten right out.
- I could take it, if you like.
- You're all right.
Nowhave you got any kiddies in the house? - What are you? Pied Piper? - No.
- I don't believe in 'em.
- You see, kiddies and poison don't mix.
That's a lesson you learn only once or twice.
If you'd seen half the things I'd seen you'd puke yourself stiff.
I've seen restaurants swimming with roaches.
Food full of lice.
I've seen a defrosted chicken move across a floor 'cause of the maggots writhing inside it.
'Ey! 'Ave a look at this.
Eh? Look at that.
That were a bad 'un.
Have you seen that? Bubonic plague? I've shat it! - Now, can I use yer toilet? - No! It's out of order.
- (PC) All right, Moz? - Listen.
I need you to do me a delivery ofcorned beef.
What? I need some corned beef.
- What you on about? - Corned beef.
Hash.
- Eh? - Hash! Hash! I need some hash! Marijuana! Dope! Brain mud! - I'm tryin' to be subtle.
- I gave you a load of skunk yesterday.
- Did you go to bed and leave the bong running? - A bloke nicked it off us.
- Eh? Who? - The one you nicked it from in the first place.
Now, look.
I'm trying to run a business here.
If a tinker runs out of pots and pans, then he's just a mad bloke with bells on his feet! D'you see what I'm saying? Listen to me feet! - Are you trippin'? - No.
But I am THIS far away from opening up a bring-and-buy sale! 'Ey? (MAKES KISSING SOUNDS) All right, Moz? Just come to score.
'Aven't we? You're a quick smoker.
I only sold you an eighth yesterday.
I lost it, didn't I? Looking for it for hours.
He were asleep the whole time.
I couldn't wake 'im.
I'm actually waiting on a delivery meself.
- Is Nicki in? - No.
I'll just have a coffee, then.
Yeah, go on, then.
(BABY GURGLES) All right.
Hello! - Is this one of them Tomy puzzle boxes? - No.
- It's rat poison.
- Ahh.
I think we'd better put you next door.
Come on.
Now, you sit here while we get us coffees.
Look! Here's yer Famous Five book! Yeah.
Yes! Do you ever think YOU might hear the patter of tiny feet? Yeah, course.
We've got rats.
Well, have you ever thought about kids? How irritatin' they are.
Only bundle of joy in this house goes straight in this bong.
You could adopt.
They're a bargain, are adopted kids.
First few months are the most expensive, aren't they? - So the later you adopt, the cheaper they are.
- Aye But if I adopted one after the school year started, I wouldn't have to buy him a uniform, would I? - Ooh, I hadn't thought of that.
- Better still, adopt a kid before he turns 18 then encourage him to leave home.
I'd be quids in.
Yeah.
You can get African ones for a quid a month.
Problem with childminding is, you're on duty 24? hours a day.
Thing is, Jen, you make it look so easy.
I suppose, after a while, you just develop a sixth sense.
Good coffee.
- It's only Asda.
- Can I see the jar? Where's the label? - Picked it off sometime.
- What'd it look like? It said''Coffee''.
Gonna look out for this.
That's Nicki's tape.
Ten episodes of ''Changing Rooms'' gone for a burton.
- Where's the baby? - Eh? I thought I left 'im in here.
Wait Did I definitely have 'im with me when I arrived? Well, he must've been here.
Left his Famous Five book.
Couldn't have got far without his buggy, could he? Better phone the police.
- You better not! - It's the procedure.
What do you mean, the procedure? - Has this happened before? - Nnot with this baby.
(BABY GURGLES) - There you go.
Ba-by.
- Aww.
.
! Right, then.
Créche closed.
All right, fella? Fancy some corned beef? I'd given up hope.
Thought I were gonna have to find alternative employment.
- I've been dusting down me P45.
- What else could you do? Porn starif I could find an opening.
There you go.
Old Lebanese? Is that it? It's crumbling away! Saw this on ''Antiques Roadshow'', didn't I? It was short notice.
On a shelf, at the station.
Didn't have a ''smoke by'' date on it.
I've got a reputation to think of.
Stop busting kiddies' parties and get some proper gear.
Be grateful! It's costing you nowt.
Don't lose this lot, neither.
I didn't lose the last lot, did I? I were robbed.
At screwdriver point! - Wouldn't laugh if I 'ad a chalk outline.
- I checked that bloke out.
Paul Nevin.
He's got some serious previous, him.
Psycho Paul, they call him.
You wanna watch who you're arresting.
Some of 'em are criminals.
- 'Ey.
It's a stressful job, this.
- Don't talk to me about stressful.
Another dealer, two streets away, that's stressful.
I'll be smokin' all me own gear to unwind.

Best be off.
Showin' a bunch of snotty-nosed kids round the station this after.

Bloody King Gob! If he sees you here, it'll be on Teletext by tonight! - Get in the bog! - Aye, go on, then.
(WHISPERS) Crouch down, come on! Go on, go on, just get in! - Kuldip.
All right, fella? - There's a police car parked across the road.
Yeh.
I've rang for it to be towed away.
(MOZ) Right, then.
In you go.
- Just need to use yer lav.
- I wouldn't if I were you.
Give it five minutes.
It's like a World War One trench in there.
Mustard gas, rats.
Mad blokes writing poetry.
Are you trippin'? Stink don't bother me, man.
Born without a sense of smell.
Remember? It's like Diarrhoea Ground Zero.
I've a mouse-hole you can pee into.
You'd be doing us a favour! (POLICE RADIO ) Repeat, armed robbery in progress at Poundstretcher on Webb Street.

A lad from the poly used to come here.
Scores an eighth off him.
Paul gives him wrong change.
This lad only complains, don't he? - What happened to 'im? - What happened to 'im? He's got three different postcodes now.
One for him and one for each of 'is ears.
- Serious? - He's had to give up his studies.
He can't wear his glasses.

I phoned you three times yesterday.
But it wasn't convenient.
Can you flog us some skunkweed? Keep your voice down! No! I had a bad experience yesterday, so I've decided I'm not dealing to any folk I don't know.
- I'm Craig.
Can you sell us some skunkweed? - Look, nothing personal, but piss off! - I need to get goin'! - I thought you'd gone! - Who was that? - Some weirdo - (DOOR OPENS) - Jesus.
