The Body

I'm trying to run a business here! Nicki's gonna go mental! It's a brand-new couch.
We only got it out of the skip last month.
Now it'sit's covered in JFK.
Guns and acid are a lethal combination! In fact, guns on their own are a lethal combination! You should know that! It's your job.
What's this? An invoice? I didn't even want him killed in the first place! And even if I did, the point of hiring a hit man is that someone else does the dirty work for you.
In fact, the whole point is you don't end up with a dead Craig all over your couch! Get him out of here! We're not even supposed to have pets! Come on, think! What about all your underworld contacts? Come on, get your phone out! You must know some kind of corpse wrangler or summat! (HE DIALS NUMBER) Come on, fella, please! Quote me happy.
You got someone? Yes! I tell you what, when that gun went off, I nearly fudged me Calvins.
But then, you know, I got this massive rush and No offence, mate.
- 'Ey! We'll throw a throw over him! - (LAUGHS WHEEZILY) - What? - (RETCHES) No, not throw up on him! Put a throw over him.
A throw! God! You are so undomesticised.
Look! See? A throw! Part sheet, part blanket! - (KNOCK AT DOOR) - Hello? Shit! I'll look after him.
You look after the throw.
Hello.
You all right? - Hey, your door was open.
- Was it? Shit.
- Hello, Moz.
- Hi.
Hey, Moz, Yasuko and me are gettin' married.
Gettin' married? What, you and Princess Wet Wipe? Married, yes.
We spend life together.
We've already stuck our wedding list up at Wickes.
So, if you're passin' - I come collect my gear.
- I ain't got any gear! No, her gear.
Her backpack.
Oh, right.
Your gear's in the kitchen.
So, erwhat are you gonna do about the language barrier, then? No problem.
I'm gonna learn advanced Japanese.
Advanced? Wouldn't you be better off learning bog-standard Japanese? Yasuko told me that advanced Japanese is actually easier to learn than bog-standard Japanese.
You do think I'm doing the right thing? You don't think she's a bit borin', do ya? - Do I think SHE'S boring? - Be honest.
Fella, you're gettin' a mail-order bride without paying the postage or packaging or owt.
You're quids in.
Besides, she kills 99 per cent of all known household germs.
- All right, we'll see ya, Moz.

Ididn't expect you back so quick.
Not so soon.
You all right there, Sangita? Keepin' busy these days, ornot really? I'm doin' less and less these days.
I could be dead in 12 months, anyway, so - Yeah.
You got anything planned beyond that? - No.
It's a shame you haven't got one of them jet pack things to wear, like in ''Minority Report''.
Like a little jet pack to ferry you around.
Ffffff! You'd be laughin'.
Moz! Sangita don't need to hear it, all right? - She doesn't want us being all boo-hoo about it.
- Yes, she does.
- Stop talkin' about me like I'm not here.
- Yeah! Show her some respect! She's a cripple! Moz! I don't view myself as a cripple.
- Yeah, but them crutches aren't just for fancy.
- No, watch.
Sangita! Moz is sorry.
Hey! Don't go talking about me like I'm not here.
- (KEY IN LOCK) - God, what now? All right? Thought you were living in married bliss.
Stabbed me again, didn't she? Cake fork in the neck during ''Diagnosis Murder''.
- That's awful.
- I don't usually watch it.

It's Nicki.
She doesn't really want you stayin' here.
I passed her on the stairs.
Didn't say nothin'.
Yeah, but she's all bent up inside.

It's six.
You've got six fingers up.
How many is it, then? That's six! Jesus! You're completely off your box, aren't ya? Did you see that? Moved.
He moved! He's alive! Bloody hell! Mrs Slocombe, what have I told you about licking the dead? (KNOCK AT DOOR) Psycho Paul? Psycho Paul? Is that what they call me? Cool.
So, erwhat can I do you for? Cartoon Head sent for us.
Said he had a dead body needed shiftin'.
I assumed he'd killed you.
Thought we had to get rid of your body.
(CHUCKLES) Nice to see ya.
Yeah, well, nice to still be here, with all the original features still intact.
- Shall I come in, then? - Yeah.
You better had, yeah.
Yo, Cartoon Head! All right, mate? You still trippin'? Yeah, dead strong, this stuff, innit? - You're not trippin' as well, are ya? - Yeah, completely outside me tent.
Oh, great.
- This the body, is it? - Psycho Paul, Dead Craig.
Dead Craig, Psycho Paul.
So how are we gonna get rid of it? What? I thought you knew what to do.
I thought that's why you'd come.
I thought you were gonna be like the Wolf.
Wolf? What? What's he on about? - Have you not seen ''Pulp Fiction''? - Yeah.
You know that bit with, erJohn Travolta and Samuel L Jackson.
Bloke that does the weird adverts.
- What? - They've got to get rid of a dead body! There's that bloke, the Wolf, he's called, and he turns up and he knows exactly what to do.
And what's it an advert for? It's not an advert for owt! It's just Just forget about that.
(KNOCK AT DOOR) Ignore that! And think of a plan! I thought you two were criminal masterminds! - (KNOCKING) - Just ignore it and think.
How can I think with that noise? - Ignore it.
- I can't ignore it! It's so loud I can smell it.
- (KNOCKING) - Calm.
Find your neutral space.
(KNOCKING) Look, I'll go and see who that is.
You, come up with a plan.

Shh.
He's not that bad, is he? So Paul and Cartoon Head do three microdots each.
Three each? That explains it.
Paul fight! Explains what? That explains why they're so out of it, in your story.
They are, aren't they? Out of it? Totally.

I left 'em to it.
And I've just text-dumped Cartoon Head, and that's that.
