Excuse me, beautiful,
can I have a word, please?
I can't. I've got a boyfriend. Sorry.
Oh yeah? I'm not surprised,
gorgeous woman like yourself.
- Are you sure we can't be friends?
- My boyfriend's my best friend.
- I'm not looking for any more.
- Okay.
[car revving]
Your boyfriend's a lucky man.
I'm the lucky one.
Well, we seem to be going
in the same direction, so fancy a lift?
I promise, no funny business.
Oh, hey.
- Uh, whose car is this?
- Yours.
- Stop being silly.
- I'm being serious, D. It's your car.
I went in there just to have a look.
And next, they're offering me keys
for a test drive.
I was gonna decline at first,
but then I thought,
"Look how long we saved for our mortgage."
- Those were some hard times. Yes?
- Yeah, I
So now I think it's time
that we treated ourselves a little bit.
Oh, babe. A treat like this
is just gonna put us
- back in that same position.
- No, it's fine.
Don't worry about this.
Have a little seat.
- Have a seat, babe. Get a feel for it.
- Oh my gosh.
[man] Look, sit down. Look at you.
It suits you. This is your color.
Look at the way
the blue is matching your skin.
Babe, this is so nice,
but we can get a car another time.
[man] No, it's fine.
I'm telling you, I've done the maths.
That's not even including my overtime.
- Didn't you get a "D" in maths?
- [man] Wow. I mean
- Shots fired.
- I'm playing.
Babe, I'm just saying
that maybe I should do the maths.
Okay, you do the maths.
You do the calculations, figure it out,
and then you'll see that we're good.
I'm telling you.
Since we've got this brand-new motor,
we might as well give it a test.
- You know what I mean? See what it can do.
- Can I drive?

And that was one sexy worm.
[chuckling] I'm done.
[woman 1] I thought
you didn't start until 12.
[woman 2] I'm going in early to help out.
You and I both know you can go in early
as many times as you want,
they're never promoting a Black woman
when they got white people to choose from.
I'm going in to help out my patients.
Besides, it's not about
the color of your skin.
It's about who's the best person
for the job.
- Or at least it should be.
- [woman 1 chuckles]
Right, so that's a double-glazed set
with a screen protector.
Ooh, oh, the Venetian frames,
are we are we still interested?
Oh, the light does come through
beautifully in the summer.
Yeah. So we should add that?
No, no, no, thank you, Ben.
Yeah, sure.
All right, we'll talk soon.
All right, ta-ra. Bye.

beautifully in the summer."

Gotta do what you gotta do, innit.
Nah, J, you came through for me
on this one, man.
- Oh, brudda, don't mention it, man.
- Nah. I'm getting to see AJ 'cause of you.
- I'm just glad it's all worked out, fam.
- Worked out?
- You ain't gotta be thanking me.
- Worked out?
If you would like to do overtime,
put your sticker on the board,
once you've finished your call.

Year 9.
I always knew she was
the woman I was gonna marry.

[woman] Oh, how's your sister doing?
[nurse] She's fine. Same old Shar.
[machine beeps]
The other day when you wasn't here,
that other nurse took nearly an hour
to take my blood.
- [nurse] I'm sure it wasn't that long.
- It felt like it.
I think she just enjoyed stabbing me.
[nurse laughing]
- You're too much.
- [patient chuckles]
How've you been, love?
How's that gorgeous boyfriend of yours?
l tell ya, if I was ten years younger,
you'd be in trouble.
[laughs] Yeah? Ten years?
I think I'm in trouble now.
I've seen the way he looks at you.
- I told him off for it too.
- [laughs]
I'm not letting him anywhere near you.
[both laughing]
Hey, do you know what room Tazer's in?
Sorry, Tayo Amusan.
How do I spell his last name?
Man, she's peng, you know?
Big man ting.
He's in room 109.
Excuse me, though, nurse.
I also do have a problem.
I tend to have a really big swelling
in between my legs whenever

[machine beeping]
What you saying? You cool?
[Tazer] It's light.
Yo, Taze,
we just wanna say
we're sorry that we left you.
There was too many of them.
- It's cool.
- [friend] It's not cool, Taze, man.
All this to prove what?
You're as hard as Krazy?
[kisses teeth]
Fuck it though, man. Whatever, man.
Next time, if you're jamming,
I'm jamming with you.
We die together, you feel me?
You man are on your own
with that dying shit still.
[all chuckle]
Listen though, with Krazy gone,
Chucky thinks the Sixers run shit now.
We're next in line.
And all this partying shit
I ain't partying again
until Chucky and them Sixer pricks

Your nan would be so happy you're giving

Mum, there's some people
gonna pop by and talk to you.
- Who?
- [knocking on door]
Remember the people I was talking about
from the sickle cell center?
[woman] Hi, Michael.
[Michael] Hi.
I brought my colleague Victoria along.
She's been in the organization
much longer than I.
And she can answer any questions
that you might have.
- Hey. Nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you, Michael.
- And you must be Tina.
- [Tina] Hi.
You know my name?
Oh, your your son's told my colleagues
a lot about you.
I'm so I'm sorry, Michael,
I don't have my notes,
but are you
a sickle cell warrior yourself?
- Oh no, no.
- Oh no, not even the trait.
Oh, one of the lucky ones.
- He's blessed.
- [Victoria chuckles]
[Tina sighs]
So tell me about this place.
Come on, sit down. I don't bite.
[Victoria and Tina laughing]
[Victoria] Well, um
Well, Tina, we're from an organization
called Health & Unity,
where we specialize in sickle cell care.
We have a number of care centers
all over the world,
but we just opened
our first one in London.
All our staff are fully trained
so that each patient's individual needs
can be met.
And they have
the newest transfusion machines,
which means that we can cut
the procedure down by 50%.
At Health & Unity, our priority
is for patients not to be in pain
for a second longer than they need to be.
So at the first signs
of discomfort or crisis,
we can offer the relevant opioid.
So no more waiting hours in A&E,
begging the doctors to give you something
like you're some kind of junkie.
These people,
they understand sickle cell properly.
We really do understand the burden
of living with sickle cell,
and we don't think that anyone
should have to carry that burden alone.
Anyway, it's all in the leaflet.
And if it's something
you feel you're interested in,
or if you have any questions,
please contact me.
- [Michael] Thank you.
- [Victoria] Nice to meet you.
- Likewise. Thank you so much for coming.
- [Tina] Thank you very much for coming.

[man] He don't look like me, bruv.
Might as well have just stayed in Tescos.
I even took your advice.
Tried using me charm
to make a few customers.
I approached everyone
with a fucking heartbeat today.
"Do you wanna buy? Do you wanna buy?"
I looked like a fucking drug pest.
It's gonna be all right. You've got this.
Mate, it's easy for you to say, all right?
You can go home if you want.
[employee] Ready.
Come, Rod.
Don't order apple crumble.
Get some proper food, please.

[Dionne] They still haven't found
Jasmine Johnson.
I mean, it's been a couple months.
I haven't heard anything on the news.
Yeah, well, unfortunately,
unless you look like Madeleine McCann,
the most you're gonna get
is a post on Facebook.
- [Michael] Mmm.
- We're seeing her mum tomorrow though.
Terry thinks she had something
to do with it, but I don't know.
I just I don't get that feeling.
Well, I reckon
you're a good judge of character,
and you should trust your gut.
- That's nice.
- [Michael] Yeah, it is.
[man on television] connection
I felt with this person.
What do you reckon?
- Think he'll stay with her?
- [Dionne] Nah.
The person
that I'll be pairing with is Karen.
- [Michael] Not Karen.
- [Dionne] My gosh, look at her face.
Is she crying?
Oh man, they need to stop putting
Black women on these shows, you know.
Unless they're gonna put men in there
that find Black women attractive,
'cause that's just out of order.

He stood you up again, didn't he?
Last time, it was a family emergency.
So, what type of emergency
is it this time?
He didn't say.
How'd he sound on the phone?
Did he sound genuine?
He texted saying he can't speak right now,
but he'll call later and explain.
How is it that he can text you,
but he can't pick up his phone?
That's not weird to you, sis?
It could be anything.
He could be with the police.
He could be hurt.
Or in between some dutty gyal's crutch.
He wouldn't do that.
- Let's go to his house then.
- What?
Let's go to his house
and see if he's there.
No. I'm not just gonna show up
at his house. I'm not that girl.
I am.
We go there, he's not in, cool.
At least we can cross it off the list.

Do you see his car anywhere?
He doesn't have a car.
Why you going out with a man with no car?
I've got my own car.

and see if he answers.
No, I'm not doing that.
Fine, I'll do it.
