I hate it when I miss

Yeah. She passed out
pretty much straightaway.
She was a bit upset though?
Nah, she was fine.
Could you at least lie
and pretend that she did?
Right. Sorry.
Yeah, no, now that you mention
it, no, she was a little bit
Too late. Okay, look,

What are you waiting for?
Hello, Vedge-fans, and welcome
back to another edition of
Unboxing for Unboxers.
Today, I'll be reviewing a
product that every unboxer needs
if you wanna be taken seriously,
the Sharptooth Box
Blade 32AA box cutter.
Not to be confused with
the Sharptooth Box Blade 32.
I mean, it is the crème
de la crème of box cutters.
- Man, don't even
- Fascinating.
- Okay, so let's talk specifics.
- Oh, my gosh.
- The sleek, ergonomic
- Idiots.
Bailey, did you hear what he said?
- What you talking about?
- and it also creates grip, okay?
Secondly, let's talk
about ceramic coating.
- Hey!
- Hello.
- Okay, spill it.
- What?
You've obviously got something
you wanna tell me. So, out with it.
How did you get all
that from just "hello"?
'Cause I'm fluent in Danny.
Are you on a bus?
At half 11:00?
- It's kind of a long story.
- Well, I'm not going anywhere.
Well, basically, my
Aunt Em died recently.
- Oh, God. I'm so sorry.
- Yeah.
- Were you close?
- Yeah, we were actually.
- Give me my shoe.
- No.
I wasn't always the most
popular girl at school.
- Missed again.
- Can I have it?
- Just catch the thing.
- Stop!
- If you want it, take it.
- Yes.
No need to cry about it.
Lisa, whatever's the matter?
But she was always there for me.
Glacier movements happen by the
process of abrasion, plucking and
Anyone else?
Can I help you?
I wouldn't have thought so.
Which one of you is Melanie Bent?
I mean, her methods could
be a little bit unorthodox.
Get off. What're you doing?
- You're lucky I'm a pacifist.
- Get off!
But she was a hero to me.
And so generous.
Like, for my graduation, she
lent me her favorite dress.
This green satin one.
I loved that dress.
But then I maybe sort of
forgot to give it back.
- You stole it?
- Little bit, yeah.
No way. I'm not having that. No way.
It wasn't my fault. I was really
forgetful when I was younger.
Right. So what's that got to
do with you being on a bus?
Okay, well, apparently Aunt
Em left strict instructions
as to what she wanted to be buried in.
- A coffin?
- Obviously a coffin.
I mean, she wanted to be
buried wearing the dress.
- And the funeral's this week.
- So what are you gonna do?
- The right thing.
- Yeah? You're gonna come clean?
- No.
- No.
No, I've got the dress with me now.
I'm taking it to Aunt Em's house.
I'm gonna hide it, but hide
it really, really badly.
And then tomorrow, they'll find it,
and then everyone will
live happily ever after.
Except Aunt Em, obviously.
Yeah. What were you
gonna tell me earlier?
Oh, yeah.
You remember that dating app
that you signed me up for?
Oh, yeah. Yeah.
Well, I got a match.
Yes, really. Can you
not sound so surprised?
- Well, what's her name?
- Amy.
Okay. Well, that's great news.
Yeah, it's good. But what happens next?
You just send her a
message and say, "Hey."
No, I can't do that.
I can't get away with just a "hey".
I'm not a "hey" kind of person.
Oh, my God, you're
overthinking this. Trust me.
- Do you think?
- Yeah.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- Go on.
- Okay.
- Sent.
- Okay.
Well done.
She hasn't responded.
Why hasn't she responded?
That's you with the "hey".
- "Do a little 'hey'."
- It's been a minute. Give it a moment!
- It's her.
- Well?
Okay. She wrote "hey" back.
That's it. And then "How was your day?"
There you go. That's a
good start, isn't it?
Okay. Now tell her what
you got up to today.
- I don't think I wanna do that.
- Why? What did you get up to today?
I don't wanna tell you
either. You'll think I'm weird.
- Danny, I already think you're weird.
- That's fair.
I tried to make a bust of
Michael Fassbender's head
- out of some Blu Tack.
- Excuse me, what?
This is him in X-Men.
Why did you do that?
I was in an arty mood. And I
just have way too much Blu Tack.
Yeah, you're right. Definitely
don't tell her about that.
Then what do I do?
Well, just be yourself.
Okay. Yeah, good point.
Be almost yourself and just, like,
trim away the weird, little edges.
Okay. Yeah. Yeah. I could do that.
- Are you talking about me?
- White suit, trousers Yes.
Danny, can I call you back?
No, you can't. Please.
No. What do I say to her?
Yeah. I'll check in, I ju
You're meant to be my girl.
- Did you just shush someone?
- Yeah, I did just shush someone.
I don't think I've ever shushed
anyone in my life. My legs are shaking.
I've never shushed anyone either. I
wish I was someone that could shush.
I'm a bit jealous.
- Danny, I've really gotta go.
- No. Don't go.
- No. Wait. Don't
- I'll call you back. Good luck.
No. Lisa, no, plea I
So, in terms of color, it comes in red,
black, silver, green, lime green.
Doesn't come in purple,
which I thought was a shame.
Do it.
"Not bad. Thanks."
"How about you?"
The recommended retail price is
higher than we all expected with this.
But with the addition of
the tape blade down here
and an additional blade that
can replace this blade once
it's been overused, you know what it
- Sorry. Have you seen a bag?
- There wasn't one here when I got on.
Sorry. Excuse me. Sorry.
- Hey. How's it going?
- Yeah. Good, good.
- Is that my dress?
- Which dress?
The dress you're wearing.
- This dress?
- Yeah.
Right. No, I don't think so.
I'm pretty sure it's my dress.
Right. Okay, I'll put it
another way. That is my dress.
Right. But I'm pretty sure it's
my dress. That's weird, isn't it?
Right. But I think we both
know that it's not, don't we?
Then how comes I'm wearing it?
Okay. You've had your fun.
Now it's time to give the dress back
Right. Okay. Yeah. Okay, I see what
this is about. I'm really sorry that
You can't just
- You won't believe it
- She wants to meet up.
- What?
- Amy. She wants to meet up in real life.
Well, I don't know.
Maybe this is the thing that
you need to get back out there.
But I don't wanna be back out
there. That's why I'm in here.
Maybe you could invite
her round to yours.
- What? Like, won't she be in my flat?
- Well, yeah.
No, I don't think so. What if
You know, what if it goes well?
- What if she wants to get intimate?
- I mean,
do you need me to cover
this with you as well?
- No, of course not. It's just
- Good.
If I remember correctly,
when, you know
- Yeah.
- you know.
- What?
- You have to get naked.
Oh, yeah. No, no, I actually
I put on more clothes.
It's just Listen.
Don't spread this to anyone.
- When I was showering this morning
- Yeah?
washing a personal place,
- I found a mound.
- A mound?
- I think it might be cancerous.
- Danny
- Actually, I know it's cancerous.
- No, it's not cancerous. What?
- Would you take a look?
- What?
Not like that. I just have
I've taken a photo on my phone.
- If you could take a look at it
- No, I will not.
Go and see a doctor.
Yeah. No, well, I have.
Sort of. Basically,
I used to send a lot of photos to my
doctor. You know, save me going in.
- Right.
- Over the years,
I may have sent quite a lot, and
she ended up sort of blocking me.
Luckily, my neighbor
Adam offered to help out.
Please, do come in.
Take a seat, please, Adam.
Okay. What appears to be the problem?
Hold that thought.
Hi, Doctor. L-Listen to this.
For some reason, I can
no longer taste pineapple.
At first I thought it was a bad
pineapple, but very recently,
I've had another, and still
I can't taste anything.
Let's just try this
one last time, shall we?
Please do let me know
if there's any part of this
that you struggle to understand.
- Yep.
- Go away.
Go away.
- She threw you out?
- Well, technically she threw Adam out.
You know? Look, if I just send you
this photo, please just take a look.
And then tell me if it's
something or nothing.
- Yes. Okay. I'll take a look at it.
- Yeah? Serious?
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
- There. It's sent. Are you okay?
- No, I'm not okay.
- Someone's stolen my dress.
- I thought you stole your dress.
No, I mean here. Right now.
They're wearing it in front of me.
Let's have a look.
Oh, yeah. He can really pull it off.
Danny! Look, I need your help.
- Okay, have you confronted him?
- Of course I confronted him.
- And what happened?
- He shushed me.
The shushee becomes the
shusher. A classic move.
Oh, my God. You're
not helping me at all.
Okay, I've got it.
You could start crying.
No. I don't want to cause a scene.
Lisa, he's the one causing a scene.
You need to expose him. Drag
his crimes out into the light,
and then make a podcast
about the whole ordeal.
- What?
- What I mean is,
you need to get the
whole bus on your side.
People love getting
outraged at this stuff.
Yeah, you're right. You're
right. I'm gonna bloody do it.
You are gonna do it. I
can see it on your face.
I'm gonna do it. I'm
gonna cause a scene.
- You're gonna do it.
- I'm bloody going.
You're gonna She's gone.
Hello. Hi, everyone.
Sorry, I just wanted you all to know
that we have a thief on this bus.
This person has stolen my dress.
See that? That's the kind of
dress I wanted for my birthday.
Well, then why tell me
perfume? I'm not a mind reader.
Look, sorry, I know it's late and
everyone just really wants to get home,
but I'd very much appreciate your help.
Somebody must have seen something.
- Anybody?
- Sorry, I don't mean to interfere
Oh, no, please do. Please interfere.
But if that's not his dress,
then where are his other clothes?
Well, I mean, obviously
it's gonna be under
Come on now. Obviously
- What do you think you're doing?
- Actually, do you know what?
You are interfering.
If you wouldn't mind
staying out of it, that would be great.
Thank you.
Don't worry, love. I'll believe ya!
Thank you.
Bloke wearing a dress.
Disgusting, if you ask me.
Oh, no.
Okay, no one listen to him.
He's I'm not We're not
We are not on the same team.
Of course, I believe that
anyone should be allowed to wear
- whatever they wanna wear.
- Great. Thanks.
Yeah, just, in this situation,
that actually is my dress.
Our plumber wears lipstick.
I still give him fruitcake.
No, that's not
Hey, how'd it go?
Yeah, not great. I pretty much
turned most of the bus against me.
But you were meant to
turn them against him.
- I know that. Thanks, Danny.
- It's okay.
Okay? We'll think of something.
While we're thinking, I don't suppose
you could tell me that
I don't have cancer?
I already told you I don't
think you have cancer.
Yeah, but what did it look like to you?
Well, I don't know. It
hasn't come through yet.
What do you mean? I sent it
to you ages ago. You should
- What?
- Oh, no.
- Danny, what? What?
- Oh, no. God, no.
Amy. I sent the picture to Amy.
Well, don't laugh.
- What are you laughing for?
- Okay, well, that's fine.
No, it's not fine. In
what world is this fine?
It's bold.
It's saying,
- "Do you know what? Screw small talk."
- Yeah.
- "Let's just cut to the chase."
- To the chase.
"Do you like my body? Also,
do you think I have cancer?"
And if the answer is
'yeah' and then 'no, '
- "let's just bloody get together."
- Together.
Look, the upside is,
if she gets back to you, you
know you've found a keeper.
No, Lisa, if she gets back to me,
she should be certified insane.
Yeah. Well, then that's another
thing you have in common.
You idiot.
So, this is your forever, is it?
You in this flat.
Do it.
Okay. Yeah. That's not so bad.
Jesus Christ!
Hey. You don't know how to ask a pigeon
to leave your flat by
any chance, do you?
Never mind.
- You okay?
- Not really.
Did Amy get back to you?
Funnily enough, she didn't.
- This way.
- Oh, no. Sorry.
Did you get your dress back?
No, I did not.
Look, there's gotta be
something you can do.
There's not. I've got nothing.
I just wish Aunt Em was here. She'd
know what to do in this situation.
Well, given what you've
told me about her,
she would have just ripped
the dress off his back, right?
Get off.
Never let the bastards win, Lisa.
Of course.
- Oh, my God, that's it.
- What?
Okay, come with me.
Well, where are we going?
Could you move, please? This is my stop.
I just want to let you know
that you are a horrible person,
and that you have
dragged me down to this.
And I want everyone here and everyone
who's going to watch this online
to know that what is about to happen
next is because of this person.
Yeah. Screw you, man. Sorry,
I didn't catch your name.
Thanks. Screw you, Tyler.
Yeah. Screw you, Tyler.
Would you please point
this at me? It's recording.
- What?
- Danny will explain.
- What's happening?
- I don't know.
I think we're just supposed
to do what we're told.
Are we ready?
I'll keep going.
He's uncomfortable.
- What you doing?
- This isn't worth the hassle, man.
Look, it's getting pretty
cold out there,
so if you're gonna be a nutter about it,
then you should probably take this.
Thank you very much.
I've got some extra clothes
with me anyway. So
Thought you might.
Piss off.
Oh, come on.
- Better luck next time.
- Whatever.
Oh, my God. Did you see me?
That is the coolest thing
I think I have ever done.
Yeah. It was amazing.
- Oh, shit. This isn't my stop.
- What?
What was that?
Trust me. You don't wanna know.
Tell me again how this
isn't breaking and entering.
Because I'm using a key.
Will you just relax? I'll
be in and out in a minute.
Then I've gotta get back and find my
shoes before someone puts them on eBay.
Look, I'll call you back when I'm done.
You've gotta be kidding me.
- I have some excellent news.
- Hit me.
It's just an ingrown hair.
- What?
- Amy, she got back to me.
No. Seriously?
Trust me, nobody's more
surprised than I am.
Okay, well, what did she say?
Well, just that it's a beautiful,
nonlethal, ingrown hair.
I'm not dying, Lisa.
Well, that is great, Danny.
Hold on. What are you wearing?
Well, it turns out that most of
Aunt Em's stuff was in storage,
so now I'm dressed like a '70s sofa.
No, it's a good look. A strong look.
Yeah, whatever. All right, I better go.
- Same time next time?
- Same time next time.
See you later.
Hello, again.
Rest in peace, you crazy bird.
Godspeed, little guy.
You've got to be kidding me.
