Minder (1979) s01e04 Episode Script

A Tethered Goat

I could be so good for you
Love you like you want me to
I could be so good for you
Love you like you want me to ♪
Hold on, hold on. Look. Oi, look.
If you stand there solidly your feet
are in the wrong position.
You'll get hit all the time. You've
got no way to move.
You should be able to bounce. Keep
your feet Look, I'll show you.
Luther, come and throw a few
right-handers at me.
Go on, Luther, mate.
Give him one.
That's typical, eh?
Right, look, I'll move. Right? Move.
He goes for me, I can move.
- Yeah, hit him!
- Hit him! Go on!
- Hello, Arthur.
- Hello, George!
Have you got a kid down here, then?
Yeah, my boy, Terry McCann.
Helps 'em out with their boxing.
- Now, ain't that public-spirited?
- Yeah.
- How's the little lady, then?
- Ah, a diamond, George!
- A treasure, eh?
- Hard like flint.
He's still a bit tasty, your Terry,
isn't he?
He does all right by me, I reckon.
Dad, can I stay at Brenda's
They say you don't mind
sub-letting him.
- Is that right?
- It depends on the price, George.
And the job. Nothing dodgy.
Would I put you onto something
not strictly kosher?
Come on.
- Dad, can I?
- Shut it, Anthea!
What's the score, then?
There's a couple of punters use my place
in South Ken. They need a bit of muscle.
The money's good. Make a meeting?
Why not?
Make him have it, Terry!
Give him the old MEW!
- Ooh!
Now, what exactly are you gentlemen
looking for?
It's not easy to describe
the sort of person we need.
Essentially, Mr. Daley, we're seeking
a man who looks the part.
- You know, a bit -
- Tasty.
- But not too -
- Not so much as to frighten people.
Sounds like my Terry.
What's the job?
Oh, simply to reassure
a visiting client.
Look after him.
Discourage anyone taking advantage.
We wouldn't want him
with any kind of er you know.
- A shooter.
- Oh, Terry never packs one.
We're strictly legitimate.
George knows that.
Then I think
we can do business together.
So where did you hear about this?
George Lewis down the youth club,
picking up his kid.
Saw you boxing, reckoned he'd get
you a job for a couple of days.
Who's George Lewis?
He owns an escort agency
and a club in South Ken.
You know, discotheque and supper.
Tables upstairs, some girls.
Is it all Hoorays and Arabs?
Oh, that'll be 1.26.
I've arranged an interview for you.
- An interview?
- Mm.
What's he wants, a minder
or bleeding brain surgeon?
Here. Two o'clock at that address.
Yeah, all right. It's a bit dodgy,
though, isn't it?
Wouldn't you think
they'd hire proper muscle?
Maybe they don't know
their way around.
Yeah, but maybe they do.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
- Mr. Elliot?
- Yes.
I'm Terry McCann.
I believe Mr. Daley had a word
with you about me.
Have you been inside?
Look, just tell me what the job is.
It might be too high-class for me.
Carry a piece?
No way.
Anyway, what do you want a bodyguard
for, big boy like you?
- It's for a colleague.
- Ah.
A Mr. Sayin.
- French?
- Arab. Lebanon.
He's in banking. Commodities.
Very influential.
What's he wants a baby-sitter for?
Ooh, they get a bit paranoid
out there in the Middle East.
It's part of his contract.
Rented house, chauffeur, bodyguard,
manservant. You know the sort of thing.
Oh, yeah. My dad never travels
anywhere without 'em (!)
- He'll be here for three or four days.
- No.
The car's a Rolls-Royce,
and what we're looking for is
a driver-cum-minder for Mr. Sayin.
Now, listen, I'm not poncin' around in all that
chauffeur's gear like somebody's pet monkey!
Personally, I never thought
monkeys could drive.
So long as you look tidy,
wear what you like.
- Any questions so far?
- Well, yeah.
Let's get it straight. Is anybody
liable to have a go at this Mr
Good Lord, no!
You can look forward
to a nice, easy three days.
Clock's stopped.
Don't worry.
The manservant will wind it.
Yes. Mr. Sayin will need somebody
to run the house.
Listen, if I'm going
to look after this geezer,
I ought to be there when you
choose this manservant.
Check him out.
We don't want a tea-leaf about,
do we?
No need to worry, Terry.
Your Mr. Daley is providing the
manservant, so he's bound to be OK.
- Where shall we start?
- Yeah, we want to check all the locks.
Doors, windows, that sort of thing.
All the light switches.
Creaking boards.
Anything that might put us in lumber
if somebody has a go at us.
I can't see Elliot being too pleased
with you running around in his Roller!
Don't worry, Terry.
When the wind of good
fortune blows, you capitalize.
Opportunity knocks but once.
What are you going to say
to this geezer anyway?
- He's got a very busy program.
- He's a banker, right?
When did a British businessman,
e.g. me, allow an Arab banker
to walk in and out of his life without
relieving him of the odd hundred Gs?
(SIGHS) Now, why would he give you
Listen, Arthur, I'm sorry,
but you're not in his league.
Terry! Oh, you do know
how to wound, you really do!
- Not in his league, eh?
- No.
Who looks after you, son?
Who got you a job
driving a Roller, when 3 days ago
you're barred from the snooker hall
- for a £6 debt?
- I'm getting late.
Don't forget the introduction.
"This is a Managing director
of Lockfast Securities."
I've got it.
I'll be over here, walking by,
sort of dead casual, you know.
Probably smoking a proper cigar.
That's really going to dazzle him,
Arthur (!)
The brown Roller,
right in front of you.
The boot's open.
Ah, Mr. Sayin?
- You have some identification?
- Yeah, of course.
You work for Mr. Sardi?
No, Mr. Elliot. On a contract.
A contract? I hope not.
Oh, I see. I see. A contract, yes.
The car's this way, sir.
Why, bless my soul!
Ah. Erm Mr. Sayin,
this is Arthur Daley,
managing director of
Sorry, mate.
Who on earth is that?
Lockfast Securities, sir.
Managing director.
Hah! My God, I'm being plagued by
scavengers. Please drive on at once.
Steady boy, oi!
This isn't an adventure playground!
- What the hell are YOU doing here?!
- Bleedin' manservant, isn't it?
Arthur hired us. Some
Well, look alive, he's here.
Oh! Your Highness!
The Sheikh Sayin, I believe.
Salaam alaikum.
Alaikum salaam.
Yes. Yes, I I
I heard the effendi's limousine
pull up outside,
and I was sure
the sheikh would be grateful for
a refreshing glass of cognac.
That is kind, but it is
against my religion to drink.
- Your name is?
- Dai Llewellyn at your service, sire.
Effendi, we are a bit rough
round the edges.
But for the tops in cooking
and the washing of bottles,
look no further.
Have no fear, effendi.
Dai is near.
Well, erm er Le-we-lin -
No, no, Llewellyn, sire.
Erm but be not troubled.
We Welshmen have great, great
difficulties with Arabian words,
like camel and oil.
- I'm sure, yes.
Le-we-lin, I wish to bathe
in five minutes,
and I want no herbs or perfumes
in the water.
Also, please get my luggage
from the car.
Hang my suits. Put my shirts, etc.,
in their places.
And lay out my grey three-piece suit with
a white poplin shirt and a red silk tie.
Also, I shall require a bowl of consomme'
and a water biscuit for my lunch in one hour.
And I want this room arranged
as a study, with a desk there,
so, I can receive my guests
on a formal, business footing.
Also, I am not a sheikh.
Neither am I an "effendi"
or a "sire".
I am Bassam Sayin,
"sir" or "Mr. Sayin" to my staff.
Luggage from car.
Bath filled with water, neat.
Grey whistle, white shirt,
red silk tie.
Soup, hardtack,
and the desk in this room.
No oriental titles,
just "mister" or "sir".
Got it, sir.
Your wish is my command.
Where, in the name of Allah,
did he come from?
Must be the agency.
All powerful body massage,
assisted shower,
topless, two girls topless or VIP.
I only happen to be a joint managing
director of this place, darling.
- Where is Franky?
- Look, are you some kind of nutter?
I'm gonna get Terry on to you.
- Terry is not here, isn't he?
- How do you know?
Couse Terry, like you sweetie,
just works for me.
- Where is she?
- Hi, Dal.
Come to inspect the investment?
at the risk of industrial action,
will you ask this young lady
to smile at customers
and make the service we offer
sound less like a sentence
of transportation to Newgate assizes?
You heard the man.
Be kind to the punters.
Right, business, love. We've got
this rich Arab up West Ken.
Big house, wall-to-wall banknotes.
Come in.
Can I have a word, please?
Of course.
- What can I do for you?
- Something you said in the car.
- You asked me if I was carrying a gun.
- Oh! Nothing.
Is there something
I ought to know, Mr. Sayin?
No, no, nothing at all.
I have some delicate negotiations
going on back in my country.
I'm sorry if I seem preoccupied.
You can always keep in contact
by phone.
My presence is needed,
to avert the complications.
Yeah, well, give me the simple life
every time.
You know politics!
What was its Byron said?
I thought you were in banking.
And commodities.
You can't be a politician in my country
without one of two things.
- And what are they?
- $100 million or a private army.
Does this Terry McCann know
what he's doing?
Let's say he's fairly competent.
Good. It is important that Sayin is
provided with a respectable bodyguard.
- Have you heard from Beirut?
- Yes. Everything is fine.
- We can go ahead with our business.
- Good.
Now, love, remember what I told you.
- Are you sure he's good for a century?
- Of course!
Look, leave the finance to Arthur.
I just want to sweeten him up
for my little proposition.
All right, Arthur.
The things I do for you!
That's the spirit!
I see.
Did he leave a number
where he could be contacted?
I see.
Thank you.
Oh, that would be Mr. Sardi.
He has an appointment.
Welcome to the Wadi Llewellyn.
- Is Terry about?
- Ah, here.
- Arthur? What are you doing here?
- Where's the punter?
Mr. Sayin is in there.
No, no. No, I don't think
that's a good idea.
- What's this? Mutiny?
- No, but he's not expecting you.
He's waiting for a geezer called Sardi.
Dai, kindly announce to Mr. Sayin
that the security advisor
to Mr. Elliot and Mr. Sardi
would be grateful for a
Ah! You are from Mr. Sardi?
We are business associates.
May I come in? Thank you.
Boudin. One of my favorites.
If pressed, I'd have to admit
a preference for Cannelloni.
- Canaletto, surely!
- Indeed.
- What I can I do for you, Mr?
- Daley. Arthur Daley.
I understand you're in banking.
That is one of my interests.
Which is no doubt why you require
the services of my man Terry.
Danger of kidnap.
But London is not like Rome.
I have good reason
for requiring a bodyguard, Mr
Of course, Mr. Sayin,
one can't be too careful.
With my Terry as your minder,
you're in good hands.
- Why
- Mr. Daley, I am a busy man.
- Please come to the point.
- I have private business interests.
Capital. Very much in a spoken-for
situation, so to speak.
The opportunity to make
four, four-and-a-half millions.
Oh! I am very pleased for you.
And I am prepared to offer a businessman
of impeccable credentials, such as yourself,
the opportunity to make
a small investment, say £150,000.
I have not that kind of money.
I'll arrange a meeting to
familiarize you with the details.
- My accountant -
- Forgive me, but I could not contemplate
doing business with - forgive me -
a complete stranger.
Well, perhaps I can take you out to lunch.
Shall we say tomorrow? One?
I am afraid my schedule forbids it.
- Pleasure to meet you, Mr erm
- Daley.
- Goodbye.
- Perhaps some of your colleagues.
We are not
in the investment business.
Thank you for your generous offer.
- Well, at least we've made contact.
- Indeed.
- I'll just leave you my card.
- You are too kind.
- Day or night.
- Goodbye.
For the present.
- All right, chief?
- Hm
You know, Terry,
I have been to London before.
I stayed in Dorchester Hotel,
private suite.
Three bodyguards, all armed.
My first guest was the permanent
secretary at the Foreign Office.
What's gone wrong?
Yes. I want to call Beirut.
Dai? Are you all right?
Oh, sorry, boyo. Just getting the
sheikh's recreation sorted out a bit.
The what? Hold on, hold on!
Blinkin' 'eck!
Ooh, hi, Terry.
Oh, look, don't get the wrong idea,
boyo, now.
This is for Frankie's nerves.
You know how it is.
Her?! Nerves?!
- What's going on?
- A standard drill for your Arabesi.
Come this time of day,
they like to erm
slip into something casual,
He'd think we were not on the ball
if we hadn't spirited
a little Turkish delight
into his boudoir, see?
All right, whose idea was this, eh?
You - get dressed! 'Ere!
Come on, come on!
Arthur's, right?
Well, he said
he'd be good for a ton!
(SIGHS) Now listen, Dai,
something's up, so lay off the gargle.
Up? What?
I don't know, but something's wrong, I can feel it.
- Bother, boyo?
- Yeah, maybe.
In the meantime, you get her to the kitchen
and spirit her out
when the coast is clear. Got it?
Bloody Arthur.
And Khalid, did you talk with him?
I'm not sure. There's no sign
of Sardi or the Englishman Elliot.
And no reply from the telephone.
Very well.
I shall call again tonight.
Everything all right, chief?
I don't know, young man.
I'm sorry about your friend Daley
and his business proposal.
Don't worry about it. He'll survive.
I don't understand how a fit,
bright, young man like yourself
should want someone like Arthur
around you.
Yeah, well, I've often
wondered that myself!
Heart of gold, though.
And he got you this appointment,
Well, through a friend of his who
met a couple of blokes in a club.
- Elliot and Sardi?
- That's right, yeah.
He said they needed a minder,
and here I am.
What's up, Mr. Sayin?
Don't you think I'm up to it?
No, no, Terry.
I think you are very able.
It's just
No disrespect
Well, out with it.
I think you're out of your class.
I'm sorry.
My enemies do not box fairly. They
are not English cricket players.
Hold on.
Elliot said he was hiring me
to baby-sit a nice old banker
who was fussy about his status.
He said you needed a minder
the same as you need
a big motor
or gold taps on your bath.
- Appearances.
- Elliot told you this?
Yeah, well, that was the drift.
But now it doesn't square
with the vibes I'm receiving.
You're in trouble, aren't you?
Frankly, Terry, I cannot afford
to be away from Beirut right now.
- Beirut? There you go again!
- I'm sorry.
Beggin' the bleedin' question.
Look, we're talking about enemies,
me being out of my class,
and all because I suspect
that I'm not dressed properly.
But your clothes are perfectly.
No, no, no.
Tooled up. Carrying a gun.
So, come on, then. Let's see
what we're getting into.
I'm sorry, I'm merely getting
impatient, that's all.
My hands are tied
until Mr. Sardi turns up.
- Is that the truth?
- Of course.
Now, if you will excuse me,
I have a great deal to do.
Where's Frankie? Has she gone?
Getting changed, yes.
Any more news on the bother,
Terry boy?
I dunno, but I don't like it, mate.
Listen, you just see that Frankie
gets out of here, all right?
Yeah, it's Terry.
No, everything is not all right,
Listen, this bloke Sayin
is into something really heavy.
Come on, Terry,
don't let's get paranoid.
The last time he came to London
he had three armed bodyguards.
Now, nice old bankers
don't go around mob-handed.
You erm
reckon there's danger?
I reckon, as you might say, Arthur,
that he's been lured here.
- From Beirut.
- Well, for what purpose?
For the purpose of topping him.
Ooh, gawd!
Are you there? Get out now,
and bring Dai with you.
Look, maybe I'm imagining it.
And maybe you're not.
Maybe you're not.
Look, I'll phone Garry and tell
I got to replace you.
I'll tell him I need you
for another job.
And listen, Terry. If there is any aggro
- bug out. Right?
If it comes down to shoot - it's all off.
Good boy. I'll ring you.
OK. Thanks for
Thanks a lot, Arthur.
You are a prince.
O, effendi.
Bad attempt.
A freedom of a noble no man.
Hard given way to telephone,
gold plated Fountain pen,
and pocket calculator.
By the way, did you know sir John Fielby
out, out there in the desert?
Lewelin, I am not a no man.
Now, what you want?
Yes. Erm
I was a prisoner of a Japanese,
you know, Sire.
Also, a valet
to the late Peter Rahman.
- Please, I am very busy
- Not another word, Your Serenity.
I am acquainted with a world.
Other parts, other customs.
- Is it nice?
- Lewelin.
Yes, yes. Look, a little diversion, Sahib.
A little
- 'pret al arabi e'
- I do not need
O, Sire, Sire. You see,
a good man servant anticipates
anticipates the needs of his master.
- Very well. Get on with it.
- O, yes.
No! Please!
This is unbearable.
Bloody Arthur.
'Usto mikhel'.
'Ma'a salam'.
They can't find Sardi either, eh?
- Do you speak Arabic?
- Nah.
I read expressions.
Listen, I got read of a circus,
Dai's making a curry.
He is not a bad cook, as it happens.
So, what this all about?
Why should I confide in you,
young man?
Look, you maybe have a private army in Beirut.
But here in West Kensington you got me.
And I go to clap your got shit. (??)
When I asked if you had a gun,
I was surprised you said "No".
Elliot should never have provided me
with unarmed 'chef-to-go'.
- Ay?
- Bodyguards. I had two.
All armed.
With submachine guns.
- This is not Beirut.
- But Elliot knows my life is always in danger.
And then he hired you.
And this lunatic man servant.
It's beyond my understanding.
Help! Terry!
Shooters. Oh, my god!
They coming in back in!
Help! Terry! Terry!
- All right. This is one for thin blue line.
- What are you doing?
- Law. Whoever friendly London coppers.
- Don't call the police! Please!
I'm sorry, sunshine, this is my life
I worried about. Number one.
Except this academic now, ain't it?
Know what I mean? They cut the line!
It's standard practice before an attempt.
Oh, you are magic, you know this?
You really fun to be with.
O, Terry boy
Oho! Running, aren't we?
Come in and stand and fight like men.
What is going on?
Hey. That's the one I swatted
with washing up liquid tale.
- Ha!
- Well done Mike. Come on, let's get out of here.
Gentlemen, thank you.
It's appears I was very mistaken
about you.
Yeah, and we were mistaken
about you and all.
If you are a banker, he is
a bleeding appeal court judge.
Now, sunshine, you are on your own.
And if you see any of your pals, tell them
they better not shows around Northworth.
- I understand, Terry, how must you feel.
- Right, Terry. Let's go, boy.
It was very brave of you.
I mean, you were unarmed.
Yeah, this is out of my league.
See you around.
I understand. Er
be careful on your way out.
Come on, Terry. You are the part
of the huge thing, boy.
We can't just leave him there,
can we?
Oh, Terry, you are mad,
quick starting fool-boy.
Come on.
It's right, Arthur. Shooting and everything.
That's why I take across the road.
You are joking, Franky.
You have to be joking.
Oh, my god.
Oh, my good god.
Listen, you star, babe,
and if the law stops you,
ever think of something.
Morning. Glad to see you.
Pleasant surprise.
You are in trouble, Denny.
Good lord!
My life is full of troubles.
Trouble like this
is what we call fatal, Mr. Daley.
You're annoyed. I can always tell.
Let me offer you a cup of -
Do you listen to the radio?
- No.
- Read the newspapers?
- You mean, you haven't heard?
- Heard what?
There was a small war yesterday
up in West Kensington.
- At No.16 Billingham Gardens.
- Oh, my gawd!
Oh, no.
Very well acted. Bravo!
- Now tell us what you want, what the deal is.
- Deal?
To return our client to us,
Ah. Er no. Look
I'm I'm not acting.
You've got to fill me in on this.
Your Mr. Terry McCann,
ace bodyguard,
and the manservant
have kidnapped our client.
Oh, no! This is terrible!
Why have the police
not been round here?
This is a diplomatic affair,
Mr. Daley.
Yeah, but, I mean, a kidnapping?
You could try the sympathy angle.
We prefer to handle it ourselves.
Now, you're a sensible man.
Perhaps we could discuss some
sort of financial arrangement.
Erm what er
What sort of financial arrangement?
Well, we could pay you£40,000
to have our client returned safely.
Come into my office, Mr. Elliot.
Bloody good of your friend
letting us doss here.
Yeah, well, he owes me a few.
Wakey, wakey, Omar Sharif!
Grub up, boyo!
I imagine several people owe much
to you, Terry. Thank you, Llewellyn.
- Ta.
- Irons.
I assure you, Mr. Elliot,
that, if at all possible,
I shall arrange this transaction to
the satisfaction of all concerned.
If it's not possible, Mr. Daley,
you know the alternative.
- Understood?
- Perfectly.
Here, look, if they won't agree
to 40 grands, can I
No games, chump!
Just get Sayin here by
lunchtime, all right?
And I'll bring the money.
- 40 grand?
- Of course.
- Hello, Terry? It's me.
- Arthur.
Listen, just as we figured,
they've been round.
And they have come up with
a very interesting deal.
They want to buy chummy back
off you.
- No!
- Now, listen, Terry.
The man is offering
a great deal of bread.
5,000 smackers
for the return of Sayin.
- No!
- No, no, no. No, no, look, look.
I am prepared to split that
right down the middle.
Get lost, Arthur. It's no deal.
- Now, listen, we need -
- Just a minute!
I said listen! We need a motor.
Are you sure about the five grands?
Look, I'll maybe little push them up
All right, all right. Just a thought
Ok, I'll get a motor over to you.
Give us the address again.
Yeah. Yeah, right, got it.
Take care, Terry. See you.
Thanks, chump.
And why don't you just drive on
over there?
We'll keep you a company.
Get notted.
What do you think I am?
If I leave you here,
it would be as a stiff.
You are not a nice man,
Mr. Elliot.
Not nice at all.
So, Elliot set us up.
Using Dal, me as stooges.
Right. Now what do we want know
from you, sunshine.
Is he any dealing with M.U.?
Also, other little incidentals like
how many?
And are they or not
coppers or something?
They are not policemen.
I entered this country
on a false passport.
Oh, that's wonderful.
In Beirut I am very respected man.
Well known.
I seldom leave the enclave held by my own faction
for we have enemies who wants to kill me.
Ha, ha. That's much I can vouch for, boyo.
Mahmud Saffir Sardi
is a member of our government.
He urged me to leave my people to come to London
to have secret meeting with the Americans.
He guaranteed full protection.
Which I got despite his efforts.
So, this Sardi double crossed you?
And Elliot and the glee club
are his boys.
And they have another
go-you-are-wrong nilpotence.
These lads don't give up.
I have to get back to my people.
If you could only get me
to the airport.
Here. That's no problem. My man
is on his way with the wheels now.
Not this one, I think.
The van.
Now, I think you'll travel in the back.
You will drive to the address
you wrote down
and remain in the van.
That's all you have to do.
Any attempt to signal or warn
McCann or his companions
and you will be shot.
Is that clear?
- Year. I got that.
- Right.
- 'there were two robberies'
- Do you think it'll go off OK, boy, er?
Shut up and listen.
'Reports of shooting incident,
which took place in the'
'area of North Garden
Kensington yesterday evening.'
'The police has recover two bullets
and traces of blood,
'which indicates at least two men
were injured in the affray.'
'Detectives are trying to trace
the occupants of the house'
'which has be rented to a Middle Eastern
government for some years.'
'But it the moment, they have
no leads as to their identities.'
Thank you, God, for that.
I must say, chief, I admire your cool.
The work has to be done.
You think, we get through airport
in safety?
Ai, hold it.
Look. Maybe you should call your embassy?
They'll do, wouldn't they?
Who know who to trust.
Sardi is probably in control of it.
I wouldn't be doing this now if you'd
pressed on with the assault on the house.
What are we paying you for?
You didn't say that, if you been there.
I thought, the bodyguard
was going to be a workover.
Apparently, we were wrong.
O, no, my friend.
You were wrong.
Come on, Arthur.

- Ok, let's hit it.
All you included, are you?
- That's what I pay you for.

What's the problem?
Start getting at ruddy pub, isn't it?
Liquor, liquor everywhere,
not a drop to drink.
Be time enough for that
when this is over, mate.
I might even join you.
I told you when to arrive.
Do you know a Welsh song?
Er David or Garry Guenn?

Here he is.
Seems all right.

Just sit like that.
Right. Go over it.

You will invite Sayin into the van.
Any warning
will result to your death.
