Yeah.
Well, I'm no'.
Neither am I.
You can stick that right up your cardigan.
I mean, look at us the other day, right? I'm in the bookie's.
You're in the baker's.
Now, if we had a couple of phones, we would not have got in that fankle! "Hello, there, Jack.
I'm in the baker's!" "Oh, hello, Victor.
I'm in the bookie's!" "Should you no' be here?" "Yes, I should! "So you stay where you are, because I'm on ma way.
"Do not eat my Beefy Bake!" MIMICS CRACKLING "Sorry, Jack, you're breaking up!" ALL LAUGH Two phones? Two phones! Hmm.
Are you wanting Android or iPhone, 3G or 4G Wi-Fi? I've got 16, 32, 64 GB.
And I can also do you 128, but you're only going to need that if you're storing, like, a lot of music and videos and stuff.
Are ye gonnae use them for streaming? Whoa, whoa, whoa! Are you just wanting to talk to each other? Aye, son.
Hold on.

Mustard? Aye! You want onions? Is this your first day? Of course I want onions.
Please.
Gie us the line.
Shut it, tadger.
LAUGHS Thanking you.
Right, how much? For you, nothing.
Eh? You're a star, man.
A legend.
A leg-end.
LAUGHS There he is, the man of the hour! Enjoying the spoils of contemporary fame that only the internet could bring.
Eh? A complete stranger bestows a gift upon you in exchange for the privilege of basking in your glow for the briefest of moments.
What are you on about? Observe.
Mate, can I trouble you for a gratis hot dog sandwich? Absolutely not, junkie.
There it is.
Oh, aye.
Aye, I see what you mean, son.
Aye.
Cheers.
What's your next move? There's a young boy, works in Henderson's the bakers, always on his phone.
I think I'll get a sausage roll out of him.
Winston, if there's anything I know about digital fame, it's fleeting.
Do you think Elvis played hayrides and hoedowns all his days? Naw.
Mr Tom Parker took him to Vegas.
And if you're enjoying this amount of fame, and that mustard on your cardigan tells me that you are, then you need to grow it.
Nurture it.
Keep it fresh.
LAUGHS How would I do that? Follow me.
KLAXON-LIKE RINGTONE Ooh! Ya bastard.
Jack Jarvis Esquire.
To whom am I speaking? It's your old pal Victor McDade calling you from my mobile device.
Oh, smashing.
Are you in? Yes, I am.
And the door is on the latch, so enter at your leisure.
Entering the apartment now, over.
Ho-ho, I thoroughly enjoyed that! Aye.
These are great, aren't they? But listen, I'm no' keen on my phone when it rings.
Oh, you mean your ringtone? Aye.
I don't like it.
It sounds like the Titanic just before it sank.
You can change that.
Can you? What have you got? Call me.
FUNKY MUSICAL RINGTONE I like that.
Aye, aye, it's a good fit for me, you know.
Suggests a man of action.
Mystery.
Intrigue.
Well, I'll have that as well, then.
Aye.
Naw.
How not? Och, we cannae have the same ringtone, Jack.
That's shite.
The ringtone's an individual thing.
It should say something unique about you! Well, I want mines to uniquely say, "Hello, ladies.
"I'm a widower, and therefore available for dinner or perhaps a little more.
" Do you know what the perfect ringtone for that is, Jack? What? KLAXON-LIKE RINGTONE Oh, you bastard.
Are yous in? Oh, yous need to come and see this! Oh.
Oh, look, it's Winston.
Hello, Winston! For God's sake, Jack, it's no' a phone link, it's an uploaded video.
It's an uploaded video, you daftie.
MICK: What are you doing, Winston? The Winston combo roll.
The breakfast of champions.
MICK: That looks bogging.
You live under a bridge! That's bogging! Anyway, shut up and get in! It's me they're tuning in to see.
Now, a lot of people have been contacting me, tweeting me and FaceChatting me and certain things like that, to see how I keep my strength up.
And here it is.
Come in, you eejit, come in, closer to the pan.
MICK: There's too much oil in there.
What would you know about cooking? Apart fae cooking wi' a spoon? BOTH LAUGH Right, back to the pan.
Now, here we go.
You take your flat sausage and you stick it there.
Always flat, mind, because if you use links they roll off the roll.
So, you put your flat sausage on the tattie-scone bed and then finally .
.
you top it with a fried egg.
A wee bit o' white pepper and the secret ingredient, Tabasco.
That looks absolutely delicious.
Right, here we go.
MICK LAUGHS Shut it, you.
Get me a towel.
MICK LAUGHS Right.
And what? Well, that's just Winston doing what he normally does.
I mean, who's interested in watching that? Who's interested? Everybody.
He only put that up this morning.
That'll go up to a million, that.
What's that there? Click that.
There you go.
MUSIC Oh, dear.
Oh, my God! Get that off my computer! You'll have the polis at my door! Right, that one.
Wait a minute.
Click it, click it! I can still see it! What did you click?! "Like".
Oh, my God.
A million views.
For bursting an egg? A million-and-a-half, and rising.
That's your problem wi' the modern world.
You can get famous for doing nothing.
See, in the old days, you had to have talent.
You had to do everything.
Your Forsyths, your Basseys, your Pasquales.
He just had the daft voice.
That's more than Winston's got.
Aye, well, anyroads We want some of that and we're going to do it better.
What are you two daft old buggers gonnae dae wi' phones? Call each other a hearse? How many contacts do you have? Eh Let me see noo.

Contacts, contacts.
One.
Let me guess.
Jack? Aye.
And would your secret passcode be 1234? Naw.
FUNKY MUSICAL RINGTONE Excuse me.
Oh, who could it be? Hello, Jack.
How are you, my friend? Good.
Are you, aye? Good for you.
What are you wanting? Pint of lager for Jack, please, Boabby.
These are bloody brilliant.
You can still talk even when you're doing a pish! Here, Jack, how many contacts do you have? Oh, right.
Eh CHUCKLES Ehehone.
Aye, you should have went to Toys R Us and got yourselves a pair of weans' walkie-talkies, you couple of wallopers.
Boys, are yous wanting to add me to your contacts? BOTH: Sure! Are yous wanting my contact details, boys? BOTH: Naw.
Right, I've sent my number to both of your numbers.
PHONES CHIME How do you know our numbers? How did I know your numbers? ISA CHUCKLES See? There you are, Boabby.
We'll build up our contacts, especially when we go virile.
Viral, Jack.
What did I say? Virile.
Aye, you've not got whatever Winston's got.
Shut your hole.
We've got it in spades.
How hard can it be? My favourite one of them is when the wee boy bites the other - wee boy's finger.

Oh, no, no, I like the newsreader boy when his family all burst in behind him.
This is my favourite.
Cliff diver.
Misses the water completely.

I'll get Victor to film me stepping out in front of an 89 bus and getting splattered.
I mean, who would watch that? Me, eight million times.
Here he is! Scotland's Angry Grandpa! Aye, that's what they're calling you! Aye, that's ma gimmick, boys.
BOABBY: Goldie? Certainly not.

It's good to see ye.
Aye.
WINSTON CHUCKLES - W-W-What's this? - Eh? I've no' got malaria.
Oh, I know, I know, but the thing is, you see, I've been shaking that many paws, you know, you've got to be safe.
I mean, you just don't know what's out there.
I'll tell you this, you think you're a big shot.
- There's no money in it.
- Is there no'? Opened that new bingo hall on Carson Street this morning.
500 quid.
Cash in hand.
Let's face it, boys.
You're analogueand I'm digital.
Winston.
What? Can we add you as a contact? Shut it, tadgers! How do we even get this up onto the World Wide Web? It's called top-loading.
We don't need to worry about that.
Isa's going to help us by top-loading it into the clouds, or something.
Are wewe ready? Ready, let's do this.
What are you doing, old pal? Just feeding the ducks.
