Queen of Oz (2023) s01e05 Episode Script

Emu Meat

Previously on Queen of Oz
Jessica Bramer.
How do you even remember me?
She was one of the girls at school
who used to bully me. They used to
throw sweets and oink at me.
"You'll never be queen.
You're too fat to be queen."
"Fatty, fatty, queen, queen."
Teddy Should I call you
Ma'am? Oh!
"Koala ears". That's what she used
to call me.
That's a cute nickname.
How about Princess Pubes?
That's not so nice.
This is all your fault.
"Talk to her, you'll feel better.
"Trust me." That's what you said.
Yeah, talk to her,
not verbally induce labour.
The baby's coming.
Oh, my God. Can I smell urine?
I'm not urinating!
Well, someone's urinating.
Stop saying "urinating"!
Oh! It's crowning. Argh!
I'm about to marry a man
I don't love. Wow.
Throw into the mix the headache
of choosing which crown to wear
and you can see why I'm such a mess.
And it wasn't the first time anyway.
So I'm sure you'll find Australia
is a business friendly,
highly globalised economy
with bountiful natural resources
and seamless access
to the Asia Pacific market.
It's a very exciting time
for the microchip industry
and we are confident Australia
will be the ideal location
for you to open your new factory.
That's our pitch.
Can I get an amen?
Look, I'll be frank with you, ma'am.
It's down to you and Switzerland.
Lazy people.
Far more interested in yodelling
and hoarding Nazi gold
than they are in working.
And how has your tour of Australia
been so far, Mr Frusctaine?
Stop it.
I have to say that,
for a first world country,
I expected Australia to be a
little less, let's say, rugged.
Ah Oh, John, don't be fooled
by our majestic terrain.
We're a thriving, contemporary,
high-tech country.
So's Switzerland, without being
covered in red dirt
and ridiculous animals.
Shots fired, sir.
There is no such thing
as a ridiculous animal,
although the numbat does
slightly undermine my argument.
I would hate for you to fall for the
trope that Australia
is a primitive backwoods wasteland.
For God's sake,
what is the matter with you?
Oh, my!
It's OK, it's OK
Queen Georgie once again
hitting the headlines today.
We need investment
in this country.
I just feel that she's let us down
and, you know, like, it's a snake!
It's a snake.
We've all had snakes
on the dinner table.
It's very unfortunate
what's happened.
Embarrassment, totally.
Probably the less I say
about that one, the better.
She finally had a chance
to do something good
for our economy,
and she just couldn't control
a snake? What?!
I think that she's just a regular
old lady who is trying to do
her best and everybody's
a little bit out for her.
Ginge and minge.
Whinge, sorry. Whinge.
Pain in the arse.
Have you seen this?
"Big deal SNAKED by Swiss." Har-har.
While I'm trying to drum up business
for this backwoods wasteland.
Meanwhile, we'll probably get
a couple of wombats
shitting in the bed tonight.
They come out in cubes.
What? Wombats, their faeces come out
in cubes. Interesting fact.
In no way is it. And never use
the word faeces round me again.
You know what this is?
Um My idea of hell.
It's Nepal. I was thinking we could
honeymoon there.
Oh, do stop.
All anyone talks about lately
is wedding arrangements.
Matthew's been titting about with
the seating plan for over a week.
It is approaching.
Yes, like an oncoming train.
There's this great volunteering
programme where you get to
help teach families
sustainable agriculture.
I'm sorry, have we met?
We can make a big difference.
Yes, by writing a big cheque!
Come on, it'd be great.
Just the two of us.
No press, really getting
our hands dirty.
The only dirty thing I want touching
my hands right now is a martini.
I can think of one
other dirty thing.
No, I'm done here.
I'm done talking about honeymoons,
I'm done talking about wedding
plans. I just
I just want to be left alone.
We need to talk wedding dress.
I'm going to kick you
in your throat.
Spoke too soon.
Hold on - you think
I'm a bridal jacket age?
Anabel suggested that, Your Majesty.
It has nothing to do with your age.
It's about hiding your body flaws.
My body flaws.
Obviously, not all of them.
But you can't get married
in a burqa, can you?
Now, this one's my favourite.
Well, that would usually
disqualify it immediately,
but that's actually not bad.
And it would be a great PR win
for us because that dress is made
out of recycled materials.
It's made out of rubbish?
No, ma'am, recycled materials.
They get reprocessed into new
fibres and then spun
into a gorgeous new fabric.
So it's made out of rubbish?
At least consider it, ma'am.
You have a massive platform. Rude!
Just by wearing a recycled dress,
you're helping save the planet.
Oh, give it a rest, Zoe.
Planet's fine.
Actually, it's not, is it?
Let's face it,
it's melting before our eyes,
so, yeah, absolutely. Why not?
Why not get married in a dress
made of decomposing flip-flops?
Count me in. And while you're at it,
knock me up a little bridal jacket
out of an old mattress. Can't wait!
Oh. A moment of your time, ma'am.
Is this about the wedding?
No. What is it about?
The after-wedding reception.
Now, would you like your guests
to have the choice
I can do this all day.
And FYI, Ryan Reynolds is a hard no.
Ma'am. I finally finished the
seating chart.
It took me absolute weeks
Sorry You startled me.
I can only imagine the shock
of someone slowly turning round.
What are you doing out here?
It seems there's still a lot
to be done before the wedding.
Yes, Sylvia, there is.
I just need a moment.
To myself.
I see.
How did you sleep?
What? I was just wondering
how you slept last night.
Why do you care how I slept?
Oh, no particular reason, no.
Then why do you ask?
I was just wondering how you slept.
Are you secretly writing
a tell-all about me?
Teddy said you had
a wicked sense of humour.
Think you'll sleep well on your
wedding night?
Your Majesty?
Do excuse me for interrupting.
No, do, please - interrupt.
The Prime Minister is waiting
for you, ma'am.
Is she? Of course she is. Excellent.
And also, what a shame we can't
continue this little chat.
Shall we have lunch after?
Teddy won't be back until late.
We can talk wedding make-up
so you don't look so ruddy.
That's a great idea.
She kept asking me how I slept.
Who does that?
Is that what real families do?
Thank God mine rarely speak to me.
My wife takes great interest
in how I'm enjoying my tea.
Every bloody sip.
I didn't realise we had a safe word
for when Sylvia gets too boring.
Ma'am? "Prime Minister"?
Nice work. Oh
Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no.
Good afternoon, Your Majesty. Shit!
Shit, shit, shit, shit!
Ah, no,
love Sorry, er Er
Ya Mrs Your Your worship.
I know it's you.
Nah, what?
Shut up!
Nah, the Queen's not here
Well, she's here, but, you know,
I'm not her, so you can
You know, you should probably
So So
You were supposed
to be a safe word!
I am not doing this today.
Oh, no. No, no, no.
Safe word. Safe word! No!
No way.
That girl needs a good night's
This is why I'm a Republican.
We're leaving. What?
Where? Anywhere that isn't here.
We can't take you off the grounds
without setting up
security protocols in advance.
I'm getting this car and
driving off with or without you.
And FYI, I don't know how to drive,
so you can either drive me
you can stay here and
find yourself another job.
Is you in or is you out?
Get in the back.
Mess Around by Super Wild Horses
I got a message for you
It goes ooh-ooh-ooh
What are you gonna do
When I go out of town?
Cos when I'm flying away
I won't be staying at home
any more, no, no
I'm gonna mess around ♪
Where are we going?
Good question. Anywhere we go,
there's a security risk.
Oh, lighten up.
No-one wants to kill me.
I can think of at least one.
I can take care of myself.
With respect, ma'am, when you saw
a cockroach in your room,
you asked if I could, quote, "burn
Macquarie House to the ground"
"and make it look like an accident."
And if you know of a better way
to get rid of a cockroach,
I'd love to hear it.
You're not as angry with me
as you're making out.
Oh, yeah? What gives you that idea?
This business.
It's called a tell.
It's called an itch. Mm-hm.
In the wild, scratching your neck
means you want to be groomed.
It's a sign of affection.
Right Well, in this case,
it's just a sign of a mozzie bite.
Sorry to disappoint you.
Makes no difference to me.
Tell it to David Attenborough.
He's the one who keeps banging on
about it.
Look, if you're just going to sit
there seething, I can drive myself.
Except you don't know how to drive.
I can figure it out. Really? Which
one of these pedals is accelerator?
That's a trick question. There's
no such thing as an accelerator.
Oh, but there is. Yeah, I know,
it's the one on the right.
Wrong. Correct, because it's the one
on the left.
Incorrect, cos it IS the one
on the right. Mm
Who am I, who am I, who am I?
Incorrect, because
it IS the one on the right.
I actually thought it was in the
This is bullshit! There's 1,000 more
details to be signed off on
and she just decides to take the
rest of the day off.
I believe that's called being a
sovereign. It's not cool!
We've been working our arses off
for weeks on this.
And I believe that's
called "having a job".
Hold on, are you all getting paid
for this?
Well, what can we do
if she's not here?
Can't believe that bitch gets
to eat this good every day.
Don't worry, darling.
She'll be here soon. She will!
We're here. And "here" is where?
The one place I could think
of where we wouldn't be seen.
So the beginning of every
true-crime docu-series.
No, the current here would just push
your corpse right back on shore.
Further up the beach would do
the trick. Comforting.
My family's owned this place
since I was a kid,
but they rarely come any more,
so you'll be safe here.
Marc? Mum?
What's everyone doing here?
Your cousin Luke's surprise party.
You were on the email chain!
That's today?
Hey, bud, you said you were working.
This is most certainly work, Dad.
What's everyone doing here?
Hey. Surprise
Surp Surprise.
I had no idea! Um, do we have a
paper towel or something?
I think Uncle Cliff just got shot.
I'll go get one Hey Cool!
Shit. Sorry, Uncle. Don't worry,
mate. It's just a scratch.
It'll give me something
to talk about at the RSL.
I'll be right with you, ma'am.
Who are ya talking to? The Quee
Ah, shit.
Where are you going?
You may have noticed, but happy
family time isn't quite my thing.
Please, ma'am, you don't
know what you're doing.
Says the man who just shot
a pensioner?
What's going on, bub?
I've got to get back to work, Mum.
Come on. Just ten minutes, please?
I miss my little Marcy Marc.
You just shot your Uncle Cliff. The
least you could do is check on him.
Ten minutes, not a minute longer.
Thank you, ma'am. Oh, don't
thank me. The pleasure's all mine,
little Marcy Marc.
Hey, hello. Hey, hello.
Oh, this smells good.
Oh, my boy! Hey, Mum.
Aw Don't shoot!
Hey, Dad. Son.
And who's your little friend?
Mum. Mate, you've done well for
Oh, Dad! Frank!
What?! It's a compliment!
Hi, I'm Ruth, Marc's mum.
Hello. Aw, come here. Oh, Mum
Um, Mum. Mum, don't!
What? It's fine It's fine.
It's fine.
Oh Oh! Mm-hm.
How do you do?
Very well, thank you.
Can you believe this?
We've got the fucking Queen
in our house!
Come on, Bernard.
I rarely drink and I detest games.
Can you even imagine how I feel
about drinking games?
OK. Matthew's go.
Um, never have I ever
lied to anyone in this room.
Wait, what?
You guys haven't lied to me,
have you?
OK, never have I ever
slept with someone
and then immediately regretted it.
Oh, my God. Who? Ew, so many.
But the most regretful was
my cousin Barton.
Your cousin? Distant, I hope.
Oh, God, yeah.
He barely looked at me.
Uh, never have I ever fantasised
about slapping the Queen so hard
that she bites her tongue off,
it falls onto the floor,
Clint eats it, and she's never
able to speak again.
Wow, that's specific.
I am appalled by this boorish
and malevolent behaviour.
You've all sunk to a new level
of disrespect
that I will not be party
to any longer.
So you're from England? Yes, I am.
The buses are funny.
Yes, I've always thought so.
Yeah. I'm sorry, Your Majesty,
I'm sure you like champagne,
but this is the best we've got.
The champagne of beers.
Well, then, it must be good.
Like an '08 Cristal in a tin can.
Thank you. You're welcome,
Your Majesty. Stop bowing, Dad.
I haven't seen you in six months,
and all you do is fuss.
Do you like it?
I do.
I have to say, I was a little
thrown -
I've never eaten off a paper plate.
But it is delicious.
It's emu meat.
Oh, my
Oh, my God!
I'm jo Oh, my!
I'm joking. I'm joking.
Because that's fun! It's fun for me.
There! Now you don't look common.
Oh Well, less common.
Wow, thanks.
You're welcome. OK
Who am I, who am I, who am I?
If you don't bring me my whisky
I'll punch you in the throat.
My nanny!
We should probably get going.
But I haven't finished
my champagne beer.
It's been past ten minutes,
and a deal's a deal.
She's an ex? Yeah.
She's pretty. Yep.
In her prime. Uh-huh.
Fit. I know. Quite the catch
Yes, all of those things.
All right, well, don't let me
cramp your style.
There's a lot of history there.
History can be good. But no future.
Lot of history, but no future.
Title of your autobiography.
Oh, someone's with the comebacks
today. Here all Here all week.
Try the emu meat.
Oh, you startled me. I thought you
might have been the queen.
Ah! Well, you're in luck.
I am practically
the next best thing.
I am 23rd in line to the throne.
Or is it 24th?
There's Freddie, Georgie
Albert, Horace, Chester
Florence, Iris, Herman
Oh, shit. I forgot Bertram! Oh
There's Freddie, Georgie, Albert,
Horace, Chester, Florence,
Bertram, Iris, Herman
You think you know,
but you don't know shit.
Of course! Of course there are
perks and privileges
that have been lavished upon me,
unjustifiably so, some may say,
and I'm not blind to that reasoning.
But let me tell you something.
While they are giving you
the yachts and the palaces
and the jewellery, with one hand,
with the other, they're taking
something in return.
And do you know what that is?
Because a royal's life is
never their own.
We were once the rulers, but now we
are the ones being ruled -
by bureaucrats, by public opinion,
by the fucking media.
That is who we must now
bow down before.
So you do or you don't want
another beer?
I mean, we all get beaten up
every once in a while,
but Matthew gets destroyed.
I know, right?
She turns me into a nervous wreck
whenever she's around.
You're a real James Bond otherwise!
I can barely sleep at night.
And now I have big patches of eczema
on my back. Oh, my God. Disgusting!
Why don't you get another job?!
Because I'm too scared to quit.
Aw, Jesus, Matthew.
I know! What's even worse is
my name is not Matthew.
What? It's Craig.
What?! You got to be joking!
Are you serious? She started
calling me Matthew on the first day.
I have been too frightened
to correct her ever since.
Oh, my God!
Alec, Thomas,
Arthur, Daisy, Anna,
Richard Shit
Is it, Arthur, Daisy, Anna,
or Anna, Daisy, Arthur? Uh
I'm a bit lost.
No, it's Arthur, Daisy, Anna.
I'll start again. Mm-hm.
Freddie, Georgie, Albert, Horace,
Chester, Florence, Bertram
Your Majesty! May I have this dance?
Oh, no, Frank. No.
Well, even the Queens have got
to dance! I know, but not
Not tonight. You sure?
Dad's got some moves.
It's a hard pass, fellas.
All right, then. Suit yourself.
I draw the line at dancing.
We can leave whenever you're ready,
What, and go back to Wedding
Planning Central? No, thank you.
We can stay a bit longer.
