The Delivery

Oh, Jesus! Me head's full of wasps.
- All right, Judith.
What are you doing here? - I was worried about you.
Didn't want to leave.
-Are you all right? -I think so.
Them mushrooms were way too strong.
I tried easing myself down with some red wine.
And cider.
Oh, and sake.
After that is a blur.
In fact, before that it were a blur.
Well, the last guest left, and I suggested we tidy up a bit.
-and then you just collapsed.
-It's an old army trick.
You were completely unconscious.
Barely breathing.
I was worried about you.
Your skin was very cold to the touch.
Was it? Eh? Bet that were a right turn on for you.
Surprised you didn't try to take advantage of us.
Bloody hell, Judith! So, how was it for you? How do I compare to a dead man? You were fantastic, Moz.
-You're so heavy and immobile.
-Well, they are amongst me best qualities.
- It won't happen again.
- Hey, hang on.
Lets not panic.
I don't mind, honest.
It's just if you ever do it again, -will you promise me one thing? - Okay.
Will you videotape it for us? So that at least I can enjoy it later.
- It might make me overly self-conscious.
- It's alright.
I'll be unconscious, so you can be conscious for the pair of us.
Come on.
Let's go down Arndale later.
We could go halves on a camcorder and some Rohypnol.
Cake? Right, coming to bust you tomorrow morning at 6, which means you and me have got to clear out every last speck of weed and hash.
-Oh, and all your pipes and bongs and all that.
-Me treasured heirlooms? I were gonna hand them down to the next generation.
No, don't worry.
I'll stick them in the storeroom down at the station.
Bring them back on Monday.
I can't believe we're having to do this.
It's not as if I deal smack or crack.
It's only a bit of weed.
I mean, it's a non-addictive drug, for God's sake.
I should know.
I smoke it every day.
So, we meet again.
Only this time, it is you that is the reflection.
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of The name's Bond, James Bond.
And as Dennis Taylor lines up, all he needs is the black.
Ooh, hi-hi.
He's a pygmy with leprosy and a touch of Tourette's.
Isn't he scrummy? It's breaking my heart, is this.
It took me years to collect all this lot.
I were gonna open a museum.
Best get this lot in the van, and then we'll get the White Widow out of the loft.
Aye.
I'll put the kettle on.
Eh, got us a pint of milk and a pack of biskies.
Remember, an army marches on its stomach.
Yeah, well, there's room for an army to march on your stomach, isn't there? Eh? Do I take the mickey out of your funny nostrils? -What's funny about them? -They're all squared-off.
Look like two little letterboxes on your face.
-They don't, do they? -Yeah.
Deal with it.
Well, come on.
Get a wiggle on.
Eat me, you deserve me.
- Are you sure? - Positive.
Didn't hear you come in.

This is a bit of a turnaround.
Come back, Nicki.
It's not the same without you.
Before you, me life was going nowhere, and then you come along and - And what? I hitched a ride to nowhere with you? - No.
-You bring out the best in me.
-Well, that doesn't say a great deal, does it? What about the baby? I thought you hated kids.

Besides, I've got into the idea of parenthood.
You know, it's -It's bound to be a doddle.
-Oh, is it? And what is it that you imagine? Me, over at yours, drowning in nappies and bibs while you're over here bonging yourself senseless? No-no, I'll be there for you.
Obviously, I'd have to show me face on the beat occasionally.
Crime don't fight itself.
Apart from inter-gang crime, that fights itself.

That's cause I got no natural bond with it.
Its DNA is just a mixture of Jenny off the block and Harry Potter, innit? It'll be different with ours.
Cause ours will be a mixture of Nicki and Moz's DNA, won't it? Yeah, I suppose.
Forgot me hat.
-There you go.

It's early days, you know.
Your waters haven't broke yet.
- Alright, Moz? This is Carmel.
- Hi.
I came to your party yesterday, but we did not meet.
Is someone gonna tell me what the fuck is going on? No, no.
We didn't.
While I was here, I think I How do you say it? I cracked my nut and lost my memory.
Lucky for me, my boyfriend was there to help me.
What? Your boyfriend? Yeah, Carmel lost her memory and I'm helping her get it back.
Can you sell us an eighth? No, I can't.
-Please, he's on probation.
-I would if I could, but I can't, so I won't.
I ain't got any gear.
I'm making a fresh start.
Come back on Monday.
-I can see you want us to leave.
But, first I must use your toilet.
That's cool? So she loses her memory, and you tell her you're her boyfriend? -Yeah, I'm on probation.
-Ten out of ten for ingenuity.
Bits and bobs have started coming back to her.
She's remembered that she works as a dancer down at Sexorama.
That's me favourite kind of rama.
Oh, well, looks like you've hit the big time, dating a lap dancer.
No, she's not a lap dancer.
She's a go-go dancer.
We're in love, Moz.
Nowt can spoil that.
Well, nowt except for her getting her memory back and realizing you're not actually her boyfriend.
Ah yeah, but by that time, yeah, I'll have worked me charm and have got in under the skin.
Mind, I don't like the idea of her working as a dancer, do you know what I mean? Down there, with all them blokes leering at her, dirty, dirty, dirty Colin! If you love her, let her go-go.
What is that? What's going on? It's just me girlfriend.
She's in a little bit of labour.
Oh, Nicki's having a baby! Oh, and we're just stood here chatting to you.
Sorry, Moz.
Didn't realise.
No, you're all right.
To tell you the truth, it's nice to get a break from all the screaming and swearing.
Oh, okay.
Well, good luck, then.
Come on.
Oh, listen, do you know if Psycho Paul's got any gear at the moment? -I don't know.
Go ask him.
-Psycho Paul? -That name sounds familiar.
-You must be thinking of Psycho Pedro.
On your marks, get set, go! Oh, don't make me laugh.
-Who was that at the door? -Just Colin and his girlfriend.
I didn't know he had one.
How long have they been together? For as long as she can remember.
Where's that midwife got to? Must be an hour since you rung her.
Yeah, must be.
I'll just ring her again.
Oh, and give Sangita a ring.
Let her know where I am.
-Hello, Alice Wolfe speaking.
-Hiya, Nicki Davis gave me this number.
She's just gone into labour.
Said you were gonna be her midwife.
-Yeah, that's right.
-Great, can you get here as quickly as you can? When you get here, can you say you were stuck in traffic for an hour? I'm sorry? And if you're passing shops, a pack of Rizla Green.
- She's on her way.
- Oh! Well, she'd better hurry up! Cause I don't think I can do this on my own.
Hey, you're not on your own.
You got me, love.
I'll help you out.
Reminds me when we went to our first date.
Remember? You got totally paralytic in that nightclub.
Threw you out for knocking that bouncer unconscious.
He was asking for it.
Anyway, how is that like this? Well, I was so worried about you, I left the club and sat on the pavement with you all night, didn't I? While you spewed your guts up.
No, you didn't.
You went and bought a chicken vindaloo.
Yeah, but I bought it for you.
Hiya, I'm Alice Wolfe, the midwife.
I'm here to see Nicki Davis.
-That were quick.
-Yeah, well, I only live on the next road down.

Me husband reckons I just like delivering stuff.
There'll be another midwife joining us shortly.
-Why? It's not twins, is it? -No, it's just the way we work.
-She's been delayed.
-Right, well, we'll say that she's you and you're her and you're here 'cause she's running late.
Right.
Is there anything I can do for you? Probably not? -There certainly is.

A couple of years of counselling, I'll be light as rain.
Well, you see, the thing they never tell you about labour is, it is actually much more difficult for the man.
I don't know how women cope with having a vagina.
-Honestly, it gives me the shivers.
-Me, too.
Different kind of shivers, mind.
I feel sorry for you, Brian.
You'll never understand how special and precious women are.
I'm just gonna shut this door for a bit.

For someone who's been inside for the last few months, he's got quite a tan on him.
