Temple (2019) s01e05 Episode Script

Episode 5

Take a look at this.
- This is a really big step, right? - Yeah.
Lee? Fancy grabbing a coffee or something later maybe? - I really miss her, Lee.
- Put this in your bag now.
He'll text.
Her hand went to her mouth like she was surprised or - Moved.
- Moved, yeah.
- Try being polite.
- You're joking, right? Who are you? We wanted to ask you about Jamie Harris.
I don't know where she lives.
I know where she works.
Weird how grief affects us in different ways.
I can't think about her enough.
I carry her letter with me everywhere.
Your patient's right on the verge of stage-five renal failure.
Do you know where the organs come from? It costs money.
Big money.
- I don't care.
- You don't care? All I want is a number.
My only alternative is to let her die.
I'm not gonna do that.
She's my wife.
And his reaction as the statue comes to life is one of disbelief.
Then, as it begins to sink into him and to us that this is really happening, the scene becomes, I think you will all agree, unbearably moving.
I don't think it's moving.
- No? - No, I think it's confusing.
Why do you think it's confusing? What, so she'd been hiding all this time? - How long for? - Sixteen years.
What, so she's just hiding and waiting to play this trick? That's stupid.
Or is she actually dead, like they said, in which case, what, did Paulina resurrect her? Well, she is older though.
What? - She aged.
- So it was a trick then.
- No, it wasn't a trick.
- That's ridiculous.
I think it's wonderful, actually.
- Yeah, and - So magical.
Right, and I'm not sure it's meant to be taken literally.
Well, that's just a cop-out.
- Why? - Well, can we just move on, please? - Well, I'm trying to - Please? I'm trying to ask a question.
So for the last 16 years, she's led the king to believe that she's dead, allowed him to suffer this horrendous grief, so that, one day, she could pretend to be a statue that comes to life to, what, see how surprised he is? That's a horrible thing to do.
I think it's wonderful.
- Well, I suppose - It's so poetic.
In order for the play to make sense, we No, it's horrible.
Also, how the hell? Jesus, all right.
- You've had your bloody moment.
- Excuse me? - Can we move on, please? - I'm trying to make a contribution.
No, you're not.
You're looking for attention.
- Attention? - Yeah.
I know your type.
- My type? - All right, ladies.
No, what's my type? Someone who needs to cause a commotion to get the spotlight.
What? What the fuck have I done to you? You've bored me shitless for what feels like the past 20 minutes, trying to make this all about you.
Come on, Eve, where are you going? Sit back down.
- Come on, it's just a discussion.
- Eve! Eve, stop it! - Dr Milton? - Professor Kirby.
- Nice to meet you.
- And you.
Eve's an adult, and as such, she is responsible for herself.
But I'm very fond of her.
I just didn't want what's been going on to continue without at least reaching out.
You know, as I said, it's not the first such incidence.
Well, I appreciate you contacting me.
Now, I know you've both suffered a loss recently.
- Yes.
- My condolences.
Thank you.
How's she been about it? - Well, obviously, it's been tough.
- Of course.
I thought she'd been dealing with it pretty capably.
We can all be experts at disguising how we really feel inside, can't we? - We can.
- Even to ourselves.
Well, I can't deny I've been more than a little distracted myself lately.
Well, perhaps that might be something worth doing something about.
Hi, sweetie.
Hi, it's me.
I was just wondering how you are really.
Whether you might want Hang on, I think this is you.
Hello? - Do you know who this is? - I think so.
Meet me at Norland Square, Holland Park, 40 minutes.
Forty minutes, OK.
Have you? It's a four-antigen match? That's right.
OK, that's pretty good.
Pretty good? I think it's excellent.
Especially given how quickly we got it for you.
So when can I pick it up? Well, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.
- There is some other news too.
- Which is what? - The price has doubled.
- What? We have a second buyer who's willing to pay a hundred, so unless you can come up with another 50 - A second buyer? - I know, I know.
We're just like buses.
Come on, we had an agreement.
Which, due to increased market demand, has changed.
But we're still giving you first refusal, so you should be grateful as well.
Now, the purchase needs to be made by 4.
00 this afternoon.
After that, the kidney goes to the other buyer.
By 4.
00? We'll be waiting to hear from you.
Go on, boy.
- Congratulations.
- Oh, thank you.
- When are you due? - Ah, November.
- Boy or a girl or prefer not to know? - Prefer not to know.
- Yeah.
Let it be a surprise? - Mm.
You can try that on if you like.
Oh, I don't know.
Does it come in any other colours? I doesn't, I'm afraid.
But I like the pink.
Yeah, I do too.
But I just not sure if it's me, you know? Tell you what, what time do you close? - Six.
- OK.
I'll think about it and come back.
- Will you be here then? - No, I finish at three.
- Right.
Thanks for your help.
- That's all right.
- Shall I put it back or? - No, I can take it.
What about the Plymouth investment? Seven working days.
My pension, I could dig into that.
They don't allow that, Daniel.
Why do you need the money so quickly anyway? You don't have a gambling problem or something, do you? What? No.
No, no, no.
Well, the best you can do, as I said, is go to the bank and withdraw the 11,000 you have left in there.
- But that still leaves me short.
- Yes.
By quite a bit.
Twenty-two? You're joking.
Twenty-two's all I've got if it's cash you want.
- It's worth 30.
- I haven't got 30.
Well, 26 then.
Look, how much did I say it was all I had? All right, fine.
Hello, Michael? No, that's OK.
I was just wondering whether you'd have five minutes for a cup of coffee, by any chance.
No, I'll come to you.
Hey, Michael.
How are things? They're OK.
Well, it's, it's still pretty tough.
- Yeah, yeah, of course.
- But, I'm getting there.
Well, you've been sorely missed, mate.
I appreciate that.
Come on.
I don't know, I suppose it was Beth's passing that started it.
At first, the amounts were modest enough, you know, five, ten pound bets.
That sort of thing.
But then of course, as time went on, they got bigger and bigger until Are you are you getting help or what? Yeah, I just spoke to someone who can get me into a programme.
Right, well, that's a start.
It is.
It is.
But, in the meantime I have a slightly more urgent problem.
Which is what? Well, I lost some money recently.
And I have to pay it back by the end of today.
Ooh, how much? Twenty thousand pounds.
Oh, right, and of course you called me.
Well Look, shit, Daniel, listen.
- I would if I could.
- You can't? - No, I'm skint.
- I thought you had, an inheritance or Well, no, Jenny did.
There was complications with Revenue.
They've frozen the payment.
- Shit.
- Isn't there anywhere else that you can get it? There might be.
Dr Milton.
- Hi, Suzanna.
- Hi.
Do you have a minute? Sure.
I haven't been very well lately.
I feel quite tired all the time, and I am worried this could be a sign of something serious.
Not necessarily.
But if you're worried, you should get yourself checked out.
Yeah, could you do that? - Me? - Yeah.
Well, no, your GP would probably be more appropriate.
I can't see a GP.
- Why not? - Well, because there are certain details I can't have people know.
Things that I would have to disclose or tell.
- Personal details? - Yes.
If I go to a doctor.
Whereas if you were to see me without - Without asking for them.
- Yes, as a personal favour.
You've always been so kind, so I thought - Never mind, I'm sorry.
- No, no, no, no.
Don't don't be sorry.
Look Put your number in here.
I'll call you later, we'll arrange something.
- Are you sure? - Yeah, I promise.
So, what kind of place you taking her to? Japanese.
- Like sushi and shit? - Yeah.
I've never had Japanese food.
But I know Michelle and her mum really like it.
- Here you are.
- Cheers.
How is Michelle? Yeah, she's good.
It's really great to be able to text.
- Really? - Yeah.
Well, good.
Glad I could help.
When's the last time you were in touch with her? Oh, this morning.
- Was she at home or at work? - At home.
It was pretty early.
Why? Oh, no reason.
I mean, I still have to go to Manchester for those couple of days.
But it could be a real opportunity, you know? Anna? Yeah.
- Where are you? - I'm listening.
Then what was I talking about? I'm sorry.
- What is it? - Nothing.
Your research? Yeah.
When did you get so obsessive? It's not an obsession.
Then what is it? I I just I don't know.
When you become really close to solving a problem, you can get a bit - Obsessive.
- preoccupied by it.
Are you still working? Oh, yeah.
Just need to check on a few things.
- Oh, Beth.
- I won't be more than a couple of hours.
But everyone's expecting you.
No one's expecting me, Anna.
It's the Christmas party.
Well, wasn't Daniel going? Oh, God, yeah.
Exactly, so - Can you take care of him till I arrive? - What? Oh, and do your best to keep Nancy Booth away from him.
Why is this necessary? Well, you know how close we are.
Yes, but we'll be just as close tomorrow.
I mean I'm sorry to say it, but I think this is getting a little bit A bit what? Obsessive.
And haven't you ever had the ambition to do something nobody else ever has? I'll see you later, Anna.
It's OK.
Hey, Jamie.
Is, is Lee around? No, he said he had to visit a work site or something.
- You all right? - Yeah.
another 200 m east and 100 south, which is why we have this problem.
So in terms of proximity, we need to take into account this system here, which, in the original outline, they didn't address at all.
Michelle? Five to three.
OK, thank you, Harriet.
- Know it by a look? - Not a look.
- A reaction - To? To whatever he said.
And yeah it doesn't have to be about Jamie.
That's right.
It could have been about anything.
Yeah, but for me, I don't see how it could be about anything else.
- Do you know what I mean? - Yeah, well you're not gonna see him today.
She's leaving.
- Hey.
- Hi.
How's it going? All right.
You? Just, running some errands.
Are we? We're OK? I'm here.
- Let's talk later.
- Sure.
running within 12 m of this wall.
We should probably run a quick feasibility study on a offshoot pathway, since that might prove beneficial to maintenance.
Mr Simmons? - Hmm? - You with us? I'm really sorry I just realised I need to make a very quick phone call.
OK, well, go and make it.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- What else? - That was it.
You could tell she was just itching to ask all the questions.
That grin on her face the whole bloody time.
- Hello? - Michelle? - Yes.
- It's Lee here, Jamie's friend.
- Is he OK? - He's fine.
I just need to Look, I'm sorry to do this.
I I just need to advise you not to go into work for a while.
Why? Because there are people looking for him, and they might be aware that you work there.
- The police? - No, no, no, not police.
But not people who have his best you know, interests at heart either.
I don't know where he is though.
These are the kind of people who might take a bit of convincing of that.
Well, I'm not due in again till tomorrow, so I'll just I'll say that I'm sick or You know, just say whatever it is you have to say.
Michelle, it's nearly ready! I'm coming! All right, I have I have to go.
Thank you.
All right, then, yeah, Yeah, bye.
And do you have it all? - Yes.
- Good.
- Who are these now? - Hmm, she's familiar.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
I think she was in the shop this morning.
Look at the reg.
- Michelle, this is, Felicity, isn't it? - Yeah.
And Tobias.
Felicity is Jamie's aunt.
- That's not exactly true.
- It's not? That's just something I said, so you'd invite us in.
- You serious? - Yeah.
Michelle and I have already met, haven't we? So who are you then? Take a seat.
I don't know where he is.
- Are you sure though? - She's already said she was sure.
Now, would you please leave? - It's your first, right? - Yes.
So you don't know what the pain is like yet.
What do you mean? Well, some people are quite shocked by it, aren't they? What are you talking about? Most people just have an epidural.
So you got a pretty low pain threshold then, do you? She doesn't see the point in putting herself through unnecessary suffering.
Yeah, it's interesting you should say that.
Who's that? How should I know? - Don't answer it.
- Well Shh.
- I didn't - Go.
- Hi.
- Hi, can we talk to you for a minute? Sure, come in.
Oh, we have some visitors.
- If we're interrupting - No, you're all right.
Thanks, Michelle.
- Hey, I know you.
- Really? Yeah, you're Mercy King, no? Sebastian's mother.
- I thought I recognised you.
- And who are you? - Who am I? - Yeah.
- None of your business.
- That's impolite.
- Is it? And? - You should learn some bloody manners.
- Maybe you should teach them to me.
- Yeah? - Or try to.
- I'd like to.
I'm not trying, man, I'm doing.
I'll be very much doing.
Well, maybe we should have a little lesson now.
- Keith.
- Rob.
Let's go.
- I'll see you again.
- Yeah.
See you again.
Bring it in.
What are you doing? You OK? You sure? - What did they want? - They were looking for Jamie.
- Did they threaten you? - Not in so many words.
- It was implied.
By their behaviour.
- Pretty lucky we called then.
- Yeah, it is.
- So, what is it you want? Oh, well, we I'll phone help.
- Yeah.
- All right, all right.
It's baby time! No doubt about it.
Jamie! Dr Sutton-Greville.
- Hey.
- You've got the money there? Yeah, do you have the kidney? Yeah, yeah.
- Think it's OK? - Yeah.
May I? Thanks.
Just counting.
- Is that your real name? - No.
Clive, is that yours? Yeah.
Why wouldn't it be? Yeah, it's all there.
All good.
Dr Sutton-Greville.
- Nice doing business with you.
- If you can call it business.
How important is that kidney to you? Important.
- Life or death important? - Yes.
Well, think of the magnitude of what we've provided you with and measure that against the few extra thousand pounds you had to pay.
Done? Excellent.
You're taking me back, right? Hey.
Hey! Hey, I have to get back! Oh, shit.
Excuse me.
Excuse me.
Is there a? There's a bus stop just up here, right? - You got any beers in there? - Beers? No, sorry.
You wouldn't give me one if you had, would you? Yes, I would.
There's one just up there around the corner.
Thanks very much.
Enjoy your beers.
Stingy fucking cunt.
Apologies, everybody.
The bus is terminating.
You'll have to alight here, I'm afraid.
Sorry, folks, the next one will be along very shortly.
- What's very shortly? - Ten minutes.
Taxi! Temple tube station, please.
Fast as you can.
- Is there a way though? - No.
- Can you turn around? - That's against the law.
Forget it.
Oh, great.
- Keep the change.
- Cheers.
Temple tube station, please.
Fast as you can.
Thank you.
- Hi, Dad.
- Hi, sweetheart.
- Sorry I missed your call earlier.
- That's OK.
- Is something up? - No, not at all.
I just wondered if you fancy meeting up again.
- Yeah, sure.
- Great.
- When? - I don't know.
How about day after tomorrow? Yeah, that sounds great.
I'd love to.
Hang on a minute, sweetheart.
Excuse me.
Why have we stopped? You don't remember me.
Look, I'm really sorry.
That was a really stressful day for me.
- Really? - Yeah.
- You need to get out of my cab.
- Excuse me? - Get out, please.
- Why? Because I'm not gonna transport anyone who calls me an arsehole.
- Look - Or a wanker.
- Dad? - Sweetheart, I have to call you back.
Dad - Listen, I'm sorry.
I've apologised.
- Get out.
I'm not gonna get out.
You've picked me up.
You're under an obligation to take me where I wanna go.
What are you doing? No! - Hey, come.
- Get off me.
- Come on.
- Get away from me! - No! No, no, no.
Give that back.
- Get out.
All right, I'm getting out.
Give it back.
- Say please.
- Jesus, please.
That's more like it.
- Thank you.
- Let this be a lesson to you.
Bit of courtesy makes the world go round, you know? No! - So give me an example.
- Well, like in work.
My boss Jeremy, he's always giving me a hard time about not conforming to a particular, you know, conservative sort of Listen, just do what you want.
- Hmm? - Just do what you're into.
You know, that's what I'm saying.
Why can't people just do what they're into? Exactly.
So, what are you into? Well, tell me.
I told you about the zoo embarrassment.
Yeah, but still Go on.
Come on.
All right Look, I mean, it's not my life, by any, means, but Have you ever heard of prepping? - Are you all right? - Yeah.
Why? - No, you just seem a bit quiet or - No, no, I'm fine.
This it? Ah, here we go.
So I'll give you a call.
- Yeah, cool.
- OK.
I had a nice night.
Me too.
Hey, this is Celine.
Leave a message after the beep.
Hey, listen, I'm just calling because I thought tonight went a bit off towards the end, and I don't know why.
I was wondering if it might have been something that I'd said.
Because if it is, it'd be great if I got the chance to address that.
Anyway, maybe I'm imagining it all.
I can be paranoid a bit that way.
OK, good night.
Did you get my message? No.
I did it.
- You did it? - Mm.
All it took was a bit of trial and error.
Well, we got there in the end.
Listen, after tonight, I'm not gonna come down here anymore.
To be honest, things have become a little bit confused for me.
And since I've done what I came to do, I think this might be a good moment to just go back to my own life.
OK? This is no good to me anymore, might as well take it with you.
Why's it no good to you anymore? The kidney's not gonna happen.
What? Why not? Just go, Anna.
- But tell me why it's not gonna happen.
- I bought it, I had it, now it's gone.
- But how? - It just is, OK? It's gone.
Thank you for all your help, but I'm sorry.
I really am.
Just go if you're gonna go.
- So when you gonna make that deposit? - Tomorrow morning.
Do it first thing.
There's some stuff I need to get done.
That's what I was planning in any case.
How's your mum, by the way.
She's good.
Well, by good, I mean she's a complete pain in the arse.
