The Heights (2019) s01e23 Episode Script

Episode 23

1 Previously on the Heights I'm just finishing up.
I'm on my way to pick the kids up now.
I'm not studying business.
I'm studying teaching.
English teaching.
She is going to kill you.
Dying for bed.
Yeah, I should go.
Don't have to.
Why do you think I flew across the globe? I still love you, Ryan.
Sorry, I completely forgot.
Hugo and I have a friend's anniversary dinner tonight.
Whoa.
What a pathetic display that was.
I mean, you've always been slow, but that was just sad, man.
You're lucky I'm hung over, man.
So Iris hasn't said a word? Nup.
Silent treatment for days.
Has barely even looked at me.
- That's cold man.
- Arctic cold.
Yeah, at least you don't have to lie anymore.
Yeah.
Come on.
I need some caffeine.
And a shower.
- I can smell the booze from here.
- (PHONE CHIMES) Who's that? It's Fraser.
Yeah? Yeah, I messaged him before to see if he was free, and as usual, he's not.
What do you mean as usual? He's with this guy Hugo.
Who's Hugo? His partner.
Wait, what? You having an affair? Kinda.
It's complicated.
Dude, are you serious? Where are you off to today? Out.
Are we gonna talk about what happened? And say what? I don't know, don't you want to know how or why? What, and make you feel better? No, thanks.
So seriously, you're actually not bothered at all about his sleeping with another guy.
It's fine by me.
As long as we're on the same page.
You should come out with me tonight, man.
Me and Tyler and Daisy.
Just get out of here for a bit.
I don't know.
I don't really know them.
It'll be fun, man.
We'll go to The Railway, we have a few drinks.
Get out of the arctic freeze in there.
What do you say? Fine.
I'll have a shower, I'll meet you later.
- OK.
- Alright.
Oi! You've got to pay for that.
Looking forward to lunch with Nancy and Lin? I'll leave you to it, then.
Is it bad if we watch Legally Blonde again? I think three times in a 24-hour time period might be my limit.
Oh, you're no fun.
- Thirsty? - (PHONE CHIMES) Any particular reason you're smiling like a goof ball? Hmm? Not really.
Just Mich being silly.
What's going on with you two, anyway? Nothing.
The guy was ready to take a water bomb for you.
Has he said anything to you? No.
He's impossible to read.
Sometimes I'm, like, maybe he's keen.
Then he acts all weird.
Yeah, sounds like Mich.
Boys are stupid.
Boys are stupid.
Why don't you invite him over here.
Are you sure? (PHONE CHIMES) Smooth.
Who texted you? Uh, no-one.
Is it a girl? A girl you like? - I don't know.
- What'd she say? She invited me over to to hang out.
Oh, that sounds good.
At Sabine's place, with Sabine.
It's not a thing.
It sounds like a thing.
Sorry.
Your age this kind of thing's a minefield, I know.
Unlike at your age, when everything runs smoothly, Dad? (CHUCKLES) If you want my advice - I don't.
- I don't blame you.
Just ask lots of questions.
- Thanks.
- You heard from your cousin? Yeah, he Snapchatted me.
He's coming to the city in a couple of weeks.
- Oh, wow.
- He wants to hang out.
Oh, that's great.
I think it's really cool how you pushed your mother and you found out where you're from, and all that.
If you're going to find your dad, find out who he is, then I support it 100%.
I mean, he's your real father.
Nah.
Nah, he's not.
You are.
Anyway, I better get ready.
Mm-hm.
Yeah, Ian.
I'm on top of it.
Talk later.
Urgh.
That new client at work - is difficult - Oh, no, no, no, today is not about work.
Today is about quality BFF time.
So, what's on the agenda? Uh, I just need to get some new bras.
- Oh, treating yourself? - No.
Just some beige ones to go under my work shirts.
Fun.
So, tell me more about your sister.
Not much more to tell.
You going to go see her again? Uh, who knows.
Are you OK? Yeah.
It's just a lot to get my head around.
How's everything with you and Mark? Yeah, yep.
We're getting there.
Stop your complaining Daphne.
You've only got over a month to go.
Can you come sooner? I am dying for a gin.
It that a Wispa bar? What, this? Can't get this in Australia? Hmm.
What a shame.
Are you still talking to that toxic, narcissistic Oh! Hi, Daphne.
Ryan.
Always a pleasure.
Alright then? Can't complain.
The pub keeps me busy.
Well, I'm just in London, birthing a human in a few short weeks.
No sister.
- The usual - Alright, Daphs.
Time for you to go.
Talk soon.
Sleep tight, yeah? Night-night.
And that is how the Kerley family line carried its genes into the 21st century.
Here.
Your turn.
Hello to you too.
(PATCH GURGLES) Good morning.
So, what do you crazy kids feel like doing? - Whatever.
- Anything.
Movie it is.
Guest's choice.
Actually, you'll probably end up making us watch some lame space odyssey.
I grant of thee the honour to chooseth the film.
I could go Guardians of the Galaxy.
Really? I love that movie.
- Me too.
- What's your favourite part? - Uh - Favourite scene? - I dunno.
- Favourite character? What's with all the questions? Don't worry, nothing.
It's fine.
Uh, Chris Pratt.
Favourite part, favourite character, favourite everything.
Have you seen Parks and Rec? Only, like, five million times.
Li'l Sebastian.
Love or hate? Love.
Duh.
Right, well, I'll make the popcorn, then.
I'm not the same You're here Don't go thinking I'm not (WHINES) Oh, mate, if you grizzle like that over two minutes of tummy time a day, you should try changing a keg at the pub.
Listen to you, tummy time! Couple of months ago you would have thought that meant turning someone over so they don't choke on their own vomit.
It's not really that different.
Daphne seemed pretty keen to have the baby, huh? She's really impatient.
I'm sure once she has it, she's going to want to shove it back in.
Wish you were there with her? I get that we're still figuring us out, but I don't want you to feel like you have to stay in Arcadia to do that.
Do you want me to leave? No, that's not what I'm saying at all.
Good.
Because I don't want to go back to London.
Not without you.
Well, maybe a feed will fix him up, huh? Come here.
Hey.
What? He has a tooth coming.
Oh, buddy.
Come here.
This table, is it new? Brand-new.
Probably too expensive.
Sully! There you are.
Hello, Aunty Nancy, Aunty Lin.
- How are you? - Good thanks.
Look at you.
So skinny.
Yep, too busy to eat.
Working double jobs.
Well, we're going to feed you lots of lunch today.
I wish.
Unfortunately I have to leave.
Oh.
Such a good son! Working hard in your mother's shop! No, Kam is helping me today.
This one here has other responsibilities.
Do you enjoy studying business? I hear a lot of people drop out.
Yeah, well Not everyone handle the competition.
Right, I'd better leave.
Bye, Aunty Nancy, Aunty Lin.
- See ya.
- Save me some cha gio.
- Sure.
- Such a good son, Iris.
My son is just another lawyer.
- He just bought me a new - Bought you a new car.
I told him not to.
Silly boy.
Just wants me to be safe.
Lucky you.
With two grandchildren now, I'm too busy babysitting.
Look at the baby.
Three months old.
(BOTH SPEAK VIETNAMESE) Ohh.
Are we eating or what? OK, yes.
Sorry I took so long.
Trying on bras is the worst.
Oh, the perks of living in active wear.
What'd you get? I just got a couple of things for Frankie for her birthday next week.
I found these rollerskates.
They're really cute.
And then I got this mini Nirvana T-shirt.
I had the same one when I was 14.
Anything else? What's that supposed to mean? Nothing.
Well, that's not your nothing face.
That's your "I'm desperately trying to bite my tongue" face.
It's just, do you really think buying all this stuff right now is a good idea? What do you mean? Nothing.
Ignore me.
Ignore me.
No, say it.
That I shouldn't get my daughter something nice for her birthday because Mark got us into debt, because my husband is a gambling addict? It's none of my business.
No, you're right, it's not.
I don't get it, why no cosmos? Just the way it is.
So, like, if I wanted to order one, I couldn't? - Do you want to order one? - Yes.
Well, you can't have one.
Finally.
How great is this place? Such a dive.
It's just had a refurb.
Wow! Imagine how gross it would have been before then.
It's definitely our new local.
Hey, I remember you.
You were heaps wasted at the Nangs show.
Yep.
You're not blue face guy, are you? Yeah, I am.
- Sorry we're late.
- Oh, no worries.
Sully, right? Yeah, hey.
Hey, um, Byron just texted.
He's going to meet us at the club later.
But that doesn't mean that we have to wait.
You guys should probably go to the bathroom.
You've got some catching up to do.
I'm good, thanks.
- You sure? - Yeah, I'm good too.
Get us a drink, yeah? So, you and Amira? What about us? You totally want to smash faces and be all smooshy-smoochy.
You're into her, right? I dunno, a little.
A lot, actually.
Now's the time to make your move, then.
Here? No, not here.
Gross.
Does she even like me? Seriously? How thick are you? She's laughing at all your lame jokes.
Yes, she likes you.
She even told me.
She did? What'd I miss? Oh, I was just telling Mich, I don't feel very well.
- You were? - Mm.
- Mm.
- Yeah, yeah.
I think it might be food poisoning.
Probably the popcorn.
Oh, I ate the popcorn too, but I feel fine.
Hm.
Maybe it was something else, then.
Either way, you guys should probably go.
Are you sure you don't want us to stick around and help out somehow? Nah, we'd better get out of here before Sabine infects us with whatever disease she's dying of.
I'll call you later? Sure thing.
I dunno, we just played footy and it was weird.
Not like a bad weird, it was, it was good.
At least for me.
What do you mean by that? I dunno, Mum was quiet the whole drive home.
Must be huge finding out you have a sister.
Yeah.
Do you like me? Sorry, that was lame.
Yep.
Do you like me? Nah.
I asked you first.
Does that answer your question? Yeah.
It does.
Whereabouts is your house? Oh, we passed it, like, six blocks ago.
Well it's not easy to raise a son on your own.
You've done a pretty good job with Sully.
He's not as perfect as he seems.
Nobody is.
Lin's son, too busy to call his mother.
So tell me, what did Sully do? He didn't kill anyone, did he? He lied to me.
Big lie, or little lie? That's not the point.
We all lie, and often it's for the best.
You know that better than most.
Look at all this food.
Such a waste.
Sit down.
Leave it with me.
Don't worry about it.
It's alright.
We'll take away.
That'll be $29.
50.
Don't worry about the change.
Going out for dinner? No, drinking at home.
Alone.
- Ooh.
Bad day? - Bad month.
Hey.
Bruce said you'd be here.
Um Look, I'm sorry about before.
No, I shouldn't have interfered.
It's not my business.
No, you were right.
And I returned most of the stuff that I bought.
Wine? Oh.
More than anything.
Is there any chance we could drink this here? Yeah.
Of course.
Mark had a relapse.
Thank you.
Yeah.
I found him, um, here actually.
He was gambling for who knows how long.
Again? Yeah.
Well, that's addicts for you.
I mean, you can't just flick a switch and stop, and I'm, I'm trying to be supportive, but I guess for one day I wanted to not be the wife of a gambling addict.
We can't just pretend, though, can we? Things were a bit heavy with my sister.
What happened? I just turned up on her doorstep without giving myself or her any time to think.
And now, I don't know.
Well, that sucks.
You going to pour that or what? Yeah.
So, does that mean you guys are official now? Oh, as if.
Before you know it, you'll have a joint bank account.
Look, I've gotta go, Mum's home.
DM me later if you need.
Alright.
Alright.
Bye, bye-bye-bye-bye.
Amira.
- She sounded excited about something.
- Mmm.
Because she is.
Her and Mich are now a thing.
Mmm.
Mich.
Wow.
I thought you and Mich might A, we're mateys.
And B, I no-longer believe in love, Mother.
You no longer believe in love? No.
Love is for bum heads, who want to have their hearts ripped out of their bum holes.
But me, I've learnt my lesson.
I say bring on a future full of cats and copious amounts of soft cheese.
Yes.
That's what the world needs more of.
More cheese.
- More cheese.
- Always more cheese.
So, you ever going to tell me what happened? Aren't you the one that told me not to kiss and tell? - So, there was a kiss? - I didn't say that.
Didn't say there wasn't.
OK.
I can see we're going to have to have that talk.
- Oh, don't.
- When a loves a man and a man loves a woman, and they want to express their love Please, please, please.
- in a consensual manner - Please-please-please.
- the man puts his - Please-please-please-please-please.
- into the woman's - Please! and they make beautiful music together.
(STRUMS GUITAR) Yeah-yeah Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah Originally I wanted to do it on Ash, but then he kind of got weird and flaked, - but, I mean, it's fine, you know.
- Yeah.
I mean, it's not finished yet, and I don't mean to sound all up myself, but, like, it's definitely the best thing I've done thus far.
And I'm hoping it'll hit the circuit soon.
I mean, it totally will.
I think it will actually win some award.
Daisy chewing your ear off about her doco? Nah.
It sounds really inspiring.
- Does it? - It is.
Yeah.
Do you guys want a drink? Yep.
Wow, she's intense.
She's cool, man, once you get to know her.
They both are.
Still, I'm not sure this is my scene.
You wouldn't mind if I bailed and didn't go to the club? You don't want to come? Talking to Daisy's like running a marathon.
Dude, I'm tired.
I just want to go home, chill out, watch a movie.
That actually sounds pretty good.
Nah.
If you want to stay and do whatever, that's fine.
Nah.
I don't.
I don't.
I'm still hungover.
Be nice to have a quiet one, you know.
- Tyler.
- Yeah.
- I'm heading.
- What? I'm going to go.
- But I thought you were coming out? - Yeah.
I know.
I've got work in the morning, got to wake up early.
See you at Daisy's screening, yeah? Yeah.
Um, yeah.
Great to see you again, Sully.
Hopefully, um, we get to hang out again soon.
Definitely.
(RUSTLING) (RUSTLING) What are you doing in my shop?! - Get out! - Mum, it's me! Sully, what are you doing? I'm looking for the projector.
- What are you doing? - I'm protecting my shop.
- With a wok? - This can do a lot of damage, son.
(SIGHS) Right.
Guess I'll keep on looking.
Did you have dinner yet? There's Cha Gio leftover in the fridge.
What are you doing? I am showering you with gifts.
You are attacking me with 6,000 calories.
Wispa Bar.
Toffee Crisps! Jammy Dodgers.
How did you do this? That is classified information.
And if I told you, you could cut out the middle man.
Well, then I really wouldn't have any use for you, would I? My eternal gratitude.
I know you miss home, and I know I'm keeping you from your friends and family, and I know this is a huge sacrifice.
But you're worth it.
I promise when Shannon gets back that We can go home? Yes.
Until then, I'm happy here.
And you are absolutely sure about that? I don't think you're hearing me.
I am happy wherever you are.
I nearly forgot to show you the best part.
Only Fools and Horses.
You're too perfect.
(ELEVATOR DINGS) What are you watching? Toy Story 3.
Oh, really? Don't pretend it's not your favourite.
You want to stop being your boring self and hang out? Oh, man.
Oh, the projector is alive! Laila, Fatema, hurry up! Rice paper roll.
(UPSIDE DOWN ISLAND BY SALARY PLAYS) Rottnest Island has turned upside down And I've turn into a little Oh, oh, little She forgot, didn't she? I might be the world's worst mother.
Really? - I've been doing good work.
- What work? Where's the cake? It's cool you have a place to study.
What about you? Where do you study? I don't study, remember? - I'm just a drama dum-dum.
- (CHUCKLES) I just feel like I'm always going to come second with you.
