1 Dad? Is that it? Um, sorry.
Um, no.
You're greatly missed, but we know you'll always be with us.
Either of you want to say anything? - No, that's okay.
- That was great.
Really good, Dad.
Shall we.
Oh, yeah.
You hold that.
It's okay.
Hang on.
It's a bit tough.
- Yeah, I got this.
- Okay.
Here we go.
Yeah, there you go.
- Did I do it? - Yep.
- Is that it? - That's it, yep.
- Just - Oh! Oh.
Ah, okay.
Better get going.
Let you two get to work.
Oh, I thought we could, um, we should have breakfast together.
Oh, how about we do that on the weekend? You're coming home tonight, right? - Um .
- What? Where are you staying? Ah, probably not.
Um, are you good to give a lift? Yeah, I can do that, but hang on, Dad, - where are you staying? - This is fucked.
, wait.
Dad, what he means is.
That it's fucked up! You don't know this woman.
Look, I have to go.
But, but we will talk, yeah? And you can, you can meet her properly and then we'll organise something for the weekend, yeah? Dad! Where? What the fuck! It's okay.
He didn't get to do the flowers! I know, I'm sorry.
It's okay.
We can do it.
We'll do it.
Do you wanna do a poem or something? - No.
- Really? Hey! Fuck! Wait, wait, wait! Fuck! Oh, that wattle is magnificent.
Want to take a cutting? Yeah.
Okay, here we go.
- Sure you're okay about this? - Yeah.
I love a snoop.
It's charming.
I'll just get my stuff.
I'm sorry, I didn't- - No, no, no, no.
- Realise.
No, no, that's, that's okay.
I should have cleaned all this out before.
There's no rush.
- It's hard.
- Yeah.
I know.
When you are ready, I can help if you like.
You don't have to do this on your own.
You are wonderful.
Come on, let's do it.
What, now? Yeah.
Oh, Glen.
You sure? Yep, sure.
Um, well, why don't we put things in piles? You can have a pile of things you want to keep, and a pile of things you might want to give to charity, and a pile of things you want to throw out.
Uh, Glen, what about a pile for the kids? No, they've, they've taken what they want.
Okay, well that's good.
Have you got any garbage bags? Ah, yeah.
Um, under the kitchen sink.
Thank you.
Of course.
Just put these there.
Put these in here.
- Oh.
- Excuse me, darling.
I think that's it.
I'll take that.
You take your time.
Oh, look at that.
I'm keeping that.
You're sure you don't wanna hang on to more? No, I'm sure.
Wanna drive? I couldn't really handle it then.
I was a kid.
I was 19.
It was a one-night-stand and I completely freaked out.
And I fucked it when he was young.
I just wasn't around, and I was travelling for work.
Basically just avoiding responsibility.
- Right.
- Yeah.
And after my burnout stint in the hospital, I realised how shit I was and I've been, I've been trying to make it up to him since.
Why you moved back? Yeah.
Oh, wow.
Wow! That's hot.
Look, I didn't expect to meet someone so soon.
And I'm sorry that I wasn't up front about it.
Well, thanks for telling me.
Um, oh, you left a pot plant in the bedroom.
It's still alive.
Um, when do you move back to yours? They're done, so um.
- Oh.
- Yeah, I can, I can come and pick it up.
Ah, when are you home? - Oh, today? - Yeah.
Um, 1:30.
Yeah okay, 1:30, 1:30s good.
Are we okay? - Gimme this.
- Oh.
- Go get a proper one.
- Yeah.
I think it's already burnt off my taste buds.
Yep, third degree burns in there.
Okay, right.
Well, um, I'll see you? Yeah.
Oh, shit.
So what's the problem? I feel sick.
These are always stale.
I don't know, he's- He just explained and apologised.
- Yeah, but.
- Admitted that he was in the wrong, do you realise how rare that is? He's clearly very self-aware.
Too self-aware, maybe.
Okay, what is wrong with you? I know you're used to dating children, but he's like a proper grown-up.
A proper one.
Jesus, Clara, stop looking for problems.
Do you actually want to be in a relationship? And it's totally fine - if you don't.
- Yeah, I do.
Then what are you doing? I don't, I don't know how to.
Oh, he's a smart, funny model, for fuck's sake.
He's surrounded by flawless women every day.
He's dating you, not them.
But he's so, and I'm not.
I'm, I'm not an easy person to be with.
- I know this.
- No one is! That's not the issue.
He wants to be with you.
- Do you want to be with him? - Yes.
Then put in some effort, alright? No one just gets a perfect relationship, and you're making him do all the fucking work, and if you want this, you need to do some.
I'm saying this because I love you.
I'd better get back.
Oh God! That's awful! Sorry.
I'm sorry.
- What the fuck! - I'm sorry.
Good thing I had work with me.
Hope you like it cold.
Well apparently I don't get lunch breaks and nobody seems to take their break, so.
I don't think that's legal.
How long you got? Mm, 15.
I'm on my toilet break right now, so.
Everyone's gonna think you poo at work.
Everybody should.
Ah, Memory Retrieval Cues.
Almost done? Yeah, I just re-edited for the 100th time.
I hate every word.
Oh, fuck off! Sorry, it's Ellia.
She keeps calling me.
Answer it.
Don't be a dick.
Like when you break up, you break up.
- That's.
- Profound.
You need to do it properly, so you can move on.
You doing okay? Mm.
Really? I just don't want to be sad anymore.
Oh shit, I should probably go.
Just say it's gastro.
Okay, what do you want? - Aaron? - Ah, shit, sorry, Dad.
Wait, whose, whose mobile number is this? Oh, um, Anita's.
Mine's dead.
I've left my charger at home.
What's up? Um, I just wanted to invite you to dinner, here, uh, this, this Saturday night.
Um, I don't know.
Can Jess come? Where? Jess? Yes, yes, yes, yes, of course, of course.
Alright, fine.
- I'll, I'll see you there.
- Oh, okay, wonderful, wonderful, um, I'll text you the details.
Alright, bye.
Okay, bye.
Yeah, bye-bye, bye, darling.
Yeah, okay, good.
Great, um.
Come up.
Where at? Hey! Um, come up, I'm in the bedroom.
So, I thought that I would surprise you.
- Same, oh my God.
- Shit.
- Um.
- Oh, sorry.
- Sorry.
I'm sorry.
- I'm so sorry.
- I'm so sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- I should have warned you.
- Sorry.
Ah, Max, I'm just gonna grab the pot plant.
I'll be one second and then you two can meet properly, later? Oh, yep, yep! Ab-absolutely, sorry, Max.

Aaron, he's not bipolar.
And I mean, he doesn't even know what he's doing anyway.
It's normal to clear out someone's stuff.
Yes, but this could totally, this could totally be a manic episode.
Hey, you need to breathe.

It's okay.
Thank you for coming.

Oh, shit.
Just drive, drive, drive.
Just floor it, Jess.
Don't even bother.
Can you please pass the bread? No, no, no, no, not with your hands.
Just the, the basket, thank you, Clara.
This is, this is very tasty.
- Oh.
- Thanks, Anita.
- Yeah, it's great.
- Oh, thank you.
Isn't she a terrific cook? Yum.
- Yup.
- It's really good.
A bit heavy on the nutmeg, but.
- Oh.
- Nutmeg enhances every flavour.
So you don't need salt! Not true.
Oh, Mum, Mum put nutmeg in everything.
Old habit.
I'm sorry, I, I put it in.
I should have just left it to Anita.
Nutmeg, apparently, has hallucinogenic properties.
No! Was Mum a junkie? You'd need a hell of a lot to hallucinate.
Oh, that's a shame.
I thought we could all get high.
Excuse me, I'm just going to check the dessert.
Who wants some more wine? It's fucked.
The way he's looking at her.
The way he's smiling at her.
The way they're looking at each other.
He seems happy.
I know, it's a lot.
But at least she's lovely.
Writhing in pain ♪ Mm, yeah, it's amazing.
- It really is.
- Yeah.
Oh, thank you.
That's very sweet of you.
Writer, painter, master chef.
These aren't yours, are they? Oh, well, um, yes, those two are, yes.
- Wow.
- They're beautiful.
Thank you, actually, um, Glen's been testing out the watercolors.
Oh, well, I.
I don't.
- Painting? - Yeah.
Shall we show them? - Well, um - I'll get it.
You're sure I did alright? Wow.
Uh, look, actually, I found it quite liberating.
Ooh, all that creative energy wasted on probate law, Dad? I don't, I don't know about being creative.
Okay, you ready? Alright.
Oh my God! Oh wow.
Well it's.
Come on, it's not.
Alright, it's first go, alright? Definitely chose the right profession.
- It's not that bad.
- Oh! Keep practicing, darling.
I think you should just stick to- Oh, that's great.
- That's great.
- Okay.
Actually, actually, I, I want to say a few things.
Yep, a bit formal.
Loves a speech.
I, just want to, um, I just want to thank you all for coming here.
I know, I know this is, um, strange for you and, and it's probably very hard, and, but I-I really appreciate you being here.
Um, especially you, Aaron.
You and your Mum were so close.
You had a very special bond.
You know, you were like a, a second chance.
You know, we were a bit older and wiser by the time you came along.
And she was very proud of you.
Well, both of us, and I know how much you're missing her.
And, but I want you to know that, that I'm here.
I mean, I can't fill the gap, but, but I'll be here, you know, whenever you need.
Great party vibes, Dad.
And I look at you, and I-I see her, because you know, actually you, you're, you're very similar, you know.
You're funny and ferociously intelligent and incredibly hard on yourselves, you know? I mean, that's why she struggled so much with her injuries, to accept them, and that's exactly why it made your relationship so much harder, because she pushed you, a lot, I know, you know, so that you'd achieve your potential, because she never felt that she'd achieved hers.
And you've more than done that.
You know, she, she loved you very much.
I know she didn't show it.
She, she found it very hard to, you know, say those things, but she did.
And I should have pushed her to be more open with you, and I'm really sorry that I wasn't.
Um, but you two, you meant the world to her.
As you do to me.
And, and so I, I am, I'm very glad that you've, you've got to meet this gorgeous woman and, and she's properly got to meet you, and, and Jesse and Peter.
You too, of course.
Because, um, I was, I was pretty sure after Christine's accident, after your Mum's accident, and after she passed away, that life w-would be very quiet and contained, and you know, sad and lonely, and that, and that would be it from now on.
Um, and, and, and then I met you.
And I know that it's been incredibly fast, and people probably think I'm totally mad, but I cannot quite believe that I have been offered another chance at happiness.
I mean, real, real, real happiness, you know, at my age, at 64.
Because you are the, the, the, the kindest, most compassionate, joyful, fearless person I've ever met, and you've somehow allowed me to grieve, and laugh, and love, all at the same time.
And I, I just can't quite explain it, but I-I-I-I, um, I-I'm just so grateful.
And I think that this is perhaps just the beginning.
- Yes.
- Of, of what you know, might be, I mean, why not? I mean, I mean, would, uh, would you consider becoming my wife? Yes.
- Oh.
- Yes.
Oh, yes.
Um, congratulations.
I might just go make some coffee.
- I'll be back in a minute.
- I'll get some coffee.
You, you should go help, help her, Dad.
Okay, um.
What the fuck? - Bye-bye! - Thank you! Bye! Well, it's good to see you all, and it was really lovely to meet you, Peter.
- Yeah, you too.
- What the fuck was that? - Aaron.
- Aaron! No, no.
What is happening? Okay, your wife has just died, Dad, and you're fucking proposing.
I mean, she's a stranger.
A-Aaron, I-I know it's really fast, but, but I-I just wanted you to understand.
You're just pretending like she's never existed.
- No.
- That's what you're doing! No, of course not.
Then why did you get rid of everything? Everything is gone, okay? Her whole room is empty.
Well you took what you wanted.
No I didn't! But I-I thought, I-I-I asked you to take you wanted.
I didn't know you were going to take everything, okay? I didn't even know you'd been there in the first place.
- Did, did, did you? - No, I'm sorry, I forgot.
It's not your fault.
It's not his fault.
You can't fucking erase her.
Um, thank you for dinner.
- Bye, guys.
- Bye, Jesse.
Uh, okay then.
Um, he's gonna calm down, Dad.
It's, it's just a lot.
He'll be fine.
You look really happy.
- Yeah.
- You deserve it.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Yeah, thanks, darling.
- Come here.
- Okay.
And congratulations again.
Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, Peter.
Well, you come again, yeah? Bring your boy next time.
- Yeah, I will do.
- Yeah? Okay.
Night, Dad.
Yep, yep.
Drive safe, yeah? Yep, we will.
You okay? Yeah.
He's only thinking about himself.
Maybe he's allowed to.
I mean, he looked after your Mum for years.
You've said yourself it was full on, - nearly losing her and.
- Goodnight.
Aaron! Great.
Aaron, hey, it doesn't have to mean anything about your Mum.
He loved her.
You know that.
He seems happy.
Doesn't he deserve that? I mean, they get each other.
You can see that.
He's in love and yeah, the timing is fucked, but they can't help that.
You can't control who you fall in love with.
No one can.
Um, I should, um.
Yeah, I'll, um, I'll see you tomorrow.
Hey! Haven't moved.
Ah, we still gonna watch "Fast and Furious?" Oh, um, oh, maybe tomorrow? I know I said but, um, is that okay? Yeah.
Great, thanks, mate.
Gotta use the bathroom.
Oh, ah do you, um.
Still on the farm.
Are you on the next level? What are you doing here? Oh, I was, ah.
This is my weekend, okay? You've taken tonight.
Now you're gonna take Sunday, too? No, I.
Oh, fuck.
He's just moved back here.
Uh, for me.
Okay, I, um- Why are you just standing there?
