1 SULLY: Previously on The Heights FRASER: Maybe you're just not ready for practical placement.
I am 100% ready.
What are you calling it? - he Cognac Cauldron.
- The Hipster Douche.
- Isn't he funny? - Yeah, he is pretty funny.
- See ya.
- See ya.
That sobered me up.
I'm worried there's something wrong with him.
- We're gonna take Patch to hospital.
- Move.
You were amazing.
Just amazing.
You can't bail on us tonight.
A man's got to make a living.
Tyler doesn't have mates.
He has projects.
We all play our role.
(KEYS RATTLE, DOOR OPENS) (WHISPERS) Sorry.
- His colour looks better.
- (WHISPERS) Yeah.
I'm sorry you couldn't get onto me.
I shouldn't have gone off like I did.
I know you're working your guts out at the pub.
- Why don't you go and get some sleep? - What are you doing? My chores.
Watto will be banging the door down at the pub.
He can wait.
Alright Sadie.
Our washing needs doing while you're at it.
Yes, Dad.
Miss you too.
Talk soon.
- Dad's got a new girlfriend.
- Another one? It's like a sushi train of princesses.
You liked Marie.
Only because she bought me things.
Including that top you're wearing.
Thanks, Marie.
- So when are you getting a boyfriend? - I'm sorry? You only go jogging when you're frustrated.
I thought you and Mich's dad hit it off? Yeah, we did, but I decided, like a good mother, that my child deserves my full attention right now.
- (KNOCK AT DOOR) - Mum, I'm fine.
Yeah, well, there was a moment there when I thought you weren't.
Dane.
I'm running.
Bye.
- Bye.
- DANE: Bye, Mrs Rosso.
I texted you.
Sorry, I was on the phone.
Not to that Mitch guy? Mich, and he's just a friend, and you acting like a complete knob every time he's around is not cool.
I'm just jealous of anyone that gets to see you more than I do.
- What's this? - Open it.
It's very leopard-y.
It's hot.
Thank you.
We need to get to school.
I want to see you in it.
We've got time.
Sorry, buddy.
You'll just have to wait.
This yours? Oh.
I wish I was wearing gloves and you're just picking it up like that.
Here.
Alright.
That was on purpose.
- Patch home yet? - Yeah, and he's actually asleep.
Mum too.
Why are you so sprightly? I got some quality rest in the waiting area.
On those chairs? Yeah.
I've got a gift.
Can sleep anywhere.
Hey, when you open up, can you have a look for my cardie? I must have forgot it in the rush on the way to the hospital.
I'm scrubbing puke out of wonder suits.
Well, since you've got the day off, I'm sprucing up the community garden.
And as I told you before, I suck at gardening.
Any idiot can use a shovel.
You'll be perfect.
('GREATEST (NOTHING TO SOMETHING)' BY CLEMENT MARFO PLAYS) (CAR HORNS BLARE) Made the mistake of telling Penny I've got nothing to wear.
She was like, "Do some washing!" Are they home at the moment? Unfortunately.
And they've guilted me into having dinner with them tonight.
You wanna come? - Where you going? - Just our joint.
Sure.
This would look great on you.
You could wear it tonight.
Yeah.
('GREATEST (NOTHING TO SOMETHING)' CONTINUES) I turn my life around SABINE: So, I've been thinking about the theme of our project.
- Urban decay.
- Kind of implies a before and after.
An old and and a new.
And Aboriginal culture is the ul Alright.
We'll do the Aboriginal thing.
Great! I thought you were going to give me more grief.
Mate, I'm already way ahead of you.
Already started researching.
(CHUCKLES) Well, I take your online research and raise you published books from the library.
Is that a real place? You can start with this one.
(CLASSICAL PIANO MUSIC PLAYS) (FOOTSTEPS APPROACH) For your services.
Ah.
Always finding weird stuff in here.
- Piano keys, bullets - Babies.
Thanks again, for what you did for Patch.
You're a half-decent nurse.
Who knew? Get lost.
And it's a nursing assistant.
What's the diff? About half the pay and you deal in sponge baths and bed sores.
Do you want to be a nurse, though? I'd love to but you have to go to uni for that.
And since I didn't even finish high school Neither did I.
But I went back to night school.
- Well, if you can do it - Oh, I see.
You think you're smarter than me? Obviously.
Which is why I'm project managing this garden.
- What am I doing? - Labouring.
Off you go.
Hey, bro.
What are you doing home? Early finish.
I need to borrow some money from the kitty.
Dude! Alright, um, what do you need it for? It's Aunty's birthday tomorrow, isn't it? I want to buy her something nice.
I'll put in extra next pay.
Mark owes me.
Alright, well, if it's for Aunty, just make sure you put the money back, alright? That's what I just said.
Alright, we're done man.
Get out! Hey, Grandad.
Oh, thought you'd grace us with your presence? Um, do we have any Indigenous art? Where did that come from? Um, I'm doing an assignment on it at school.
No, we don't.
It's not a deliberate choice.
It's just how it happened.
- But we're Aboriginal.
- Yes.
- Your father is and so - I'm not talking about him.
Yes, my mother was.
But I never really grew up with her, so her culture's never really been a big part of my life.
- Do you know much about her? - Not much.
- Has Grandad said anything? - Not really.
Who took the sports section? I don't know, Dad.
I haven't seen it.
Well, it was here.
Now it isn't.
Mum? Mich, this isn't the time to talk about it.
Must be going mad.
I'll check the bedroom.
Have you checked the loo? You're you're always leaving bits of it in there.
I'll go have a look.
Mum, Mum, Mum, Mum I thought we could plant some sage for the Hipster Douches.
That name's going to stick, isn't it? - 'Fraid so.
- Can we plant a lime tree? They cost, like, a dollar at the shop.
Do you know how long it takes to get a decent harvest of limes? Years.
By the time it grows fruit, you'll be back in London.
Here's hoping.
What's so great about living there? - The cold or the rain? - Ooh, got to be the rain.
But, you know, it feels like you're somewhere.
The music scene, popping to Madrid for the weekend.
Millions of people the whole world right there.
It actually sounds pretty lonely.
It can be.
But I'm sure the ladies loved the accent.
Not as much as you'd think.
Although Oh, hello.
There was one girl.
Anything serious? I asked her to marry me.
And she said no.
Oh! Oh! (LAUGHS) Ah! (LAUGHS) Oh, you're really terrible at gardening.
I've got it, I've got it.
CLAUDIA: Suits me, don't you think? Yeah.
If you were married to Gino and ran a car wash.
Can I have it, please? Well, if you don't like it, why'd you buy it? I didn't.
Dane bought it for me.
Well, tell him it's hideous.
Yeah, that's exactly what you say when someone gives you a present.
- So, you gonna wear it? - Mum.
- Up to you.
- That's right.
It's up to me.
It's just a bra, Mum.
Yeah, I know.
But I worry about what else he might suggest you wear or You don't have to wear or do anything you aren't comfortable with.
With anyone.
Wow! What happened to Billy Bass? And the picture of the dogs playing poker? In a faraway galaxy called Landfill.
Like what I've done with the place? I hardly recognise it.
A few small changes can make a big difference.
And after Mum passed, I felt the urge to make it mine.
- Like a fresh start.
- Mm.
It's easier than going to London.
I've travelled.
Oh, yeah, where to? - Bali.
- Uh-oh.
Bogan.
I'm happy here.
It's home.
('FRIENDS WITH FEELINGS' BY ALICE SKYE PLAYS) Now go shower.
Shower Right, yes.
(LAUGHS) Uh, the towels are just there.
- Thanks.
- Great.
Careful when you come out.
The door sticks.
Uh, yeah.
Cheers.
- Cool.
Cool.
- Friends with my feelings But I'm not sure I want to get to know them At all And there's no black or white But a whole lot of grey I hope that tomorrow Won't be like today Anyway.
(PERSIAN MUSIC PLAYS) So beautiful girls.
Keep going.
What are you doing? It's not like this in the video.
It's like this.
That's what I was doing.
(MUSIC STOPS THEN RESUMES) (TARA TIBA SINGS 'NAVAIE' ON RECORDING) Hey, bro.
Come on.
('NAVAIE' CONTINUES) (MUSIC STOPS) (MUSIC RESUMES) Did you get the gift? Didn't have time.
Oh, well, you had time to buy a shirt, though.
- Alright, I'll get it tomorrow.
- With what? Five bucks? I saw the price tag.
Look, I said I'd pay it back.
- It's not about the money, Ash.
- Well, what is it about? What's your problem? You could buy 100 shirts.
Buy them.
I don't care.
You're still never gonna fit in with those people.
(DOOR OPENS) You know, only only real men hit pipes when they when they dig.
It was plastic.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) Pants would be good.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Yep.
Hey, Sully? So, this is where you work.
Uh, yeah, this this is our shop our family shop.
Sully, who is your friend? Uh, this is Fraser, Mr Fraser.
I'm James.
Sully's doing his prac I'm doing the internship with him, uh, in finance.
He's my supervisor.
It's a pleasure to meet you, Mr Fraser.
We were just actually gonna go for a walk.
Is my son working hard? Uh, Mum, that's not appropriate.
Yeah, he's doing a great job, Mrs Tran.
He's actually been a huge help to us on an acquisition deal we're doing for a major retail bank.
Which one? Uh, confidential, I'm afraid.
But Sully's, uh, made a significant impact on our client.
He's he's got a real future with us, I think.
Mr Fraser, would you like a smoothie? It's free of charge.
Uh, he he's alright.
Mum, I just saw a customer walk in.
You might want to keep an eye on him.
What customer? Did I just see a tiger mum in her natural habitat? Yeah.
Scary, huh? Is being a teacher so bad? It just doesn't have the prestige or pay cheque of a dentist, lawyer or businessman.
You know, it's just it's just high expectations.
I can kind of relate.
My folks wanted me to go into the family business.
Bathroom wholesale.
Eventually, they realised I was a a lost cause.
I can't tell Mum.
She's gonna find out eventually.
And I'll call myself an ambulance.
(LAUGHS) - Mum? - 'Cause I will hear I'll hear 'Cause I spend my time Waitin' on you Waitin' on you And I Spend my life (CAMERA CLICKS) Waitin' for you Waitin' for you So far from me But just around The corner.
PENNY: You know, I just don't think they do enough to help small business owners.
I often think that if I was starting out Mum has her own homewares business.
How did you get into that? I've always loved decorating, designing my own apartments.
It's beautiful.
Obviously, you have a talent for it.
Oh! You're gorgeous.
Isn't he gorgeous? The business is just a flimsy excuse for Penny to go to Indonesia four times a year, buying stock.
(LAUGHS) It's true.
(LAUGHS) - I'm off.
- Where? Didn't I tell you? Bob's retiring.
We're having a bash at the sailing club.
- Nice to see you again, Ash.
- You too.
I'm going to get another drink.
Bob retired two years ago.
So, he's not going to a sailing club? Oh, maybe.
But he'll be going straight to the boat where his girlfriend's waiting for him.
Seriously? Does your mum know? (SCOFFS) Don't worry about Penny.
She has her own fun.
Would everyone mind if I took this down? Nope.
It was Skinny Harper's.
Darts champion '83.
Lung cancer '84.
- It's going in the bin.
- Wait! What? You want it? Well, I feel like we should do something with it in in Skinny's memory.
Fill her up.
(ALL LAUGH) I mean, what is a 16-year-old doing, buying lingerie? I don't remember my high school boyfriend getting me anything other than a couple of Timezone games.
I wish someone would get me lingerie.
Or even just dinner.
I'd settle for dinner.
Does that mean that you're ready for me to set you up with my physio? Uh, I would but, truth be told, I have way too much on my plate with work at the moment.
Oh.
Sorry.
And what's your excuse? Who's up for another? - Yes, please.
- Hmm Not me.
Another round? Uh, just two this time.
Leonie is being sensible.
You've got to watch Renee, though.
Before you know it, she'll have you in a cab, - heading towards a karaoke bar.
- (LAUGHS) - Renee sings? - She tries.
Well, it's the last one for me.
School night and everything.
Ah.
How's Sabine going? Is she behaving herself? Well, she said she's studying and I'm 90% inclined to believe her.
- Oh, nice.
- What's Mich up to? No idea.
He's staying with a mate tonight.
So, you know, anything could be happening.
- Here you are.
- Thank you.
Thanks.
See ya.
I think you should definitely, definitely give it a go.
He's he's really charming Thank you.
You know, it means he's a family man, he loves women.
- He'll love you.
- (LEONIE LAUGHS) PENNY: So, Ash, I hear Daisy's making a documentary about you.
Well, thankfully she seems to have dropped the idea.
Why? It would be fabulous! Your life is fascinating.
I told her some of it.
So, why did you leave Iran? Uh (CLEARS THROAT) My uncle, he criticised the government, so our family was threatened.
How awful.
Well, millions of Iranians have a similar story.
I'm not that unique.
It's criminal the way we treat refugees in this country.
People who come here looking for help and we just turn them away.
Mum, dry up.
Shall we switch to red? Yes.
No! Crack out the scotch.
If you have too much, you can always stay the night.
- (ORCHESTRAL MUSIC PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND) - Oh, God, I hate Roger's music.
I'm going to change it.
I thought you had something on tonight? I got out of it.
I'd rather see you instead.
And you knew my mum wouldn't be home.
Well, and I got your pic.
It's gross, sorry.
As if.
Are you wearing it now? Is that all you came here for? I came to spend time with you.
As long as I'm in my underwear? - Of course not.
- That's what it feels like.
Well, it feels like you don't like my present.
Alright.
I love that you bought me something, but that really wasn't me.
- So, do you want me to take it back? - No.
I already did, and I got these awesome bathers, which I love, so you can take me to the beach on the weekend.
Well, I'm glad you got something you like.
So, I've been doing my social studies essay and I think I'm ready for my BoJack Horseman break.
('INHIBITION' BY AMASTRO PLAYS) TYLER: Looking a bit dry there.
Come on, come on, come with me Take your time I'm gonna head, man.
But it's early.
Penny, thanks for having me.
You're lovely.
- Dance with me.
- Mum, Mum, get off him.
What are you doing? You can you can stay.
I'm good.
Catch you later.
('INHIBITION' BY AMASTRO CONTINUES) Yep, I'm right to drive.
Honestly, it's no problem.
Reason number 103 for why I love this woman.
I've just I've gotta wee first.
Well, it is a beautiful night and I am gonna walk home.
Are you sure? - Positive.
See you soon.
- See ya.
- That was quick.
- Yeah.
Have you seen the loos in this place? Eugh! Come on, then.
Passing the baby baton.
You happy to close up, then? Might have a drink with Max while I'm at it.
What have you done with the crap from that shelf? Uh it's in the bin, and I don't want to stop there.
I've been thinking How would you feel if I did this place up a bit made it ours? What brought this on? Well, if we have to keep it open, we may as well make it appealing to everyone, not just the cheap and hairy locals.
- Thanks, mate.
- (LAUGHS) Are we talking elbow grease or cold hard ones? A bit of both.
It wouldn't take much.
This place has a lot of potential.
And I really think it could be a viable business for us.
This wasn't part of the plan.
Well, what's the harm in trying? And if it doesn't work, we can still sell when Shannon comes back, but for a greater profit.
('FOR THE GOOD OF YOUR SOUL' BY MICHAELA JAYDE PLAYS) That old troublesome road (KNOCK AT DOOR) You've been there before - Oh, hey.
- Hey.
Uh, Sabine's not here.
Oh, yeah, I know.
Oh.
Did you want some weed for Audrey? Uh no.
Oh.
Yeah, um, the girls called it a night and I don't want to stay drinking at the pub on my own.
Oh did you want to come in and have a drink? Nah.
No? I want to do this.

- More a - Series of house calls.
House calls.
Mum will be home at six.
There's heaps to do after school.
Ash, what time do you finish? - Don't count on him showing up.
- You know I'll be here, right? Unless your friends call with a better offer.
The circles in the middle there, what do they mean? - Why are you asking me? - I thought, um Because I'm Indigenous? She's my grandmother.
I deserve to know! I said enough! Ohh! Wherever you go
