Let Me Stop You There

1 Yeah, I started the hostility log thing - this week.
- How's that working out? Oh, yeah, good.
Um Had a bit of a situation Wednesday with somebody.
Yeah, it was just-just some guy eyeballing me at the pub.
But I was getting pretty pissed, and I used the stop technique, you know, we spoke about.
So, yeah.
It's I'm-I'm getting pretty good at it, - so that's good.
- Great.
Um Ray, how have you been? Yeah, good, mate.
- Yeah? - Yep.
Is there anything you want to talk about? Nah, I'm good.
Are you sure? Nothing at all? I beat my, uh, girlfriend's brother up over Christmas.
Um What happened? I went round to her parents' place, and, um Yeah, we did the whole, uh, Secret Santa thing.
Me daughter got this unicorn candle, which she was pretty chuffed about, and, uh, me girlfriend's brother decided he wanted it, and when it was his turn, he, uh, took it off her.
So you assaulted him? Well, he was being a dickhead, so, - you know.
- So you assaulted him? Eh, pretty much.
And how did your girlfriend feel about this? Well, she's not my girlfriend anymore, so Shit.
- Sorry, mate.
- Mm.
I mean, uh, you know, without wanting to state the obvious, can you see how violence is perhaps not the best way for you to resolve your disputes? No, I think it generally is.
But, you know, just don't do it in front of your girlfriend, you know? Uh, what's great about it? I mean, it doesn't seem to have worked - for you this time.
- Yeah, well, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, you know? Can you give me one example of violence ever working? World War II.
- World War II.
- Mm-hmm.
We didn't beat the Nazis just by talking to them.
We used violence.
Okay, sure.
So every now and then, violence is necessary as a last resort.
But for you, uh, with your girlfriend's brother, I mean, would you call that an example of violence working? Yeah, look, I shouldn't have done what I did.
You know, I'm not making excuses.
But I don't think you can say that all violence is bad.
I mean, I think there's good violence and bad violence.
What's good violence? World War II.
Thanks, Vince.
Um - Yeah.
- Uh, all right, maybe it's about time.
Maybe we should leave it there.
Thank you, everyone.
Thank you.
German forces had already moved in and now occupied the abbey ruins in force.

So I have to say something, and fast - Mm.
- so I say "You!" Uh, but because I took a second to answer, she's like, "Why'd you have to think about it?" I said, "I don't know, the question kind of took me by surprise.

It was-it was, you know, it was nothing too serious, I guess, from my perspective anyway.
And so, I, uh, stopped seeing her a few weeks ago, and and now she's threatening to tell my wife.
And, uh, she's threatening, if I don't pay her a shitload of cash, she's gonna talk.
- And how much is she asking for? - Uh, two million.
- Ooh, shit.

She won't listen to reason, all right? And she-she also said she's gonna go to the press and tell them all sorts of shit about me, - and none of that's true, okay? - Mm.
'Cause with my public profile, I-I just I can't have that.
