The Heights (2019) s01e25 Episode Script

Episode 25

Previously on The Heights There's no us.
I'm not breaking up with Hugo.
I'm breaking up with you.
I'm gonna go.
But I thought you were coming out.
Be really good if you were in on that call too, actually.
Sorry, Ian, can I stop you there? I just quit my job.
On ya.
Mr Tran, maybe this book isn't so crap after all.
Do you own a suit? And, more importantly, do you look hot in it? I look hot in everything.
We're dating.
Trust me, we know.
Hey, guys, good news.
Jackson's having a party and said we can tag along.
How kind.
Well, it wasn't easy getting everyone over the line.
So we going? Sure.
You OK with that? Totally, yeah.
Should be fun.
Guess I should expand my friendship group.
- Count me in.
- Kam? Um, nah.
It's not really my scene.
Oh, but we never get to hang out.
Yeah.
Maybe some other time.
Better get to work.
Hey, you guys are tight.
You reckon you can convince him to come? - Doubt it.
- Dude, you're dating my best friend.
By law you have to help me.
OK, but I can't make any promises.
Ew, they're so gross.
Mmm.
Everything OK, mate? Yeah, I'm great.
Everything's great.
Don't mind him.
He's being a sad bag.
It's a sad sack, Mum.
Whatever it is, you been like this for days now.
It's time to stop.
$33.
50.
33? You quoted me 25 when I brought it in.
The dry cleaner said the suit is mouldy, and there's some mysterious stains on it.
They had to go over it twice.
- No energy drink? - Uh-uh.
Not today.
- Unemployment suits you.
- Tell me about it.
I've been to my fifth yoga class this week.
Oh, nice.
- Who died? - No-one died.
Then why did you dry clean your funeral suit? That's not my funeral suit.
Well, it's not just my funeral suit.
Yeah, it's your only suit.
So what's the special occasion? Do you have to stick your nose into every part of my life? - I mean, seriously Fine.
- Uh-huh.
It's a function with Claudia at the hospital, that's all.
Oh, really? Interesting.
No, it's not interesting.
Not interesting.
No, attending a work thing's a big deal.
You know, lots of pressure to perform.
Aren't I right, Iris? It's more important than meeting the parents.
Mmm, you sure you're up to the task? As fun as this is, I really have to go.
Oh, I think he's nervous.
Isn't that cute? Not really.
Whoa, you still got it.
Exactly how old do you think I am? I'm gonna take the safe option and not answer that.
Actually I will.
You're clearly a toddler.
Here, let me.
So what time's Pav picking you up? No, he's not.
We're meeting there.
And they say chivalry is dead.
Trust me, if it was up to Pav, we'd helicopter in and make a grand entrance.
I thought you guys were like a full-on couple now? Yeah, we are.
He lives close to the hospital.
It would be silly for him to back track and then go back.
Classic Mum-so.
Head over heart always.
So tell me again who's party this is you're going to tonight? Some guy called Jackson.
Alcohol? Thanks, but no thanks.
I know you think you're being amusing, but I can assure you, you're not.
Trust me, Mum, I won't drink or do drugs or do anything even remotely fun.
And you'll be home by 11:30? Sabine! Is that another photo? Oh it's not.
It's really not.
They've still been coming, though, haven't they? Sometimes I get the odd DM or Snapchat, but other than that my privacy settings have been doing the job.
Well, what is it, then? It's just a silly meme.
I didn't get it.
Shouldn't you finish getting ready? Oh, yep.
- Brother.
- Hey, bro.
- How are you? - Why do you have to Far out, man.
Ready to go for a run? Um, sorry, I forgot.
I've got a shift.
All good.
Can't do weekend, I'm working.
I can do Monday before school.
No more school.
I'm finished with my prac.
Dude, congrats.
That's awesome.
And with Fraser.
That explains the mood.
What happened? I just broke it off.
It wasn't working.
Mm.
Sorry, man.
You know what? You deserve way better than that guy was offering anyway.
You should come with me to Tyler's tonight.
No, thanks.
They're doing Daisy's doco screening.
They're gonna be well behaved.
I doubt that.
Look, I don't even get why you bother with those people.
Come on, they're not that bad.
Maybe you deserve more than what they're offering.
A pass? - It's not a fail.
- It may as well be.
Not many teachers excel in their first prac, but they learn from their experience.
They don't march into their supervisor's office and chuck a tantrum.
You were more than my supervisor.
I was.
Oh, OK, so that's what this is about? You serious? I graded you before you broke things off.
What mark were you expecting? I don't know.
At least a credit.
Look, your lesson plans are sound, you've got a good handle on assessment, but you struggle in front of a class.
You admitted that yourself.
You've got a long way to go with confidence, and discipline.
It's not gonna happen overnight.
It's up to you to decide how badly you want it.
That's Dane.
Yeah, with his arm around some rando.
Oh, babe, I'm sorry.
I mean, he's ugly, but what's the problem? Dane's got a new girlfriend.
So? So, I don't know, it just sucks.
- Don't you hate the guy? - Yeah.
So what do you care if he has a new girlfriend? - Because I just do, OK? - Mmm.
It's not fair.
He gets to move on, be happy, be forgiven by other girls.
And what do I get? Besides being called a slut.
Oh, and let's not forget the constant harassment by complete strangers.
You're right, that sucks.
That sucks big time, I'm sorry.
What do you want to do? Curl up into a foetal position and listen to angry girl music.
The party? No, so not in the mood.
Guess it's just you guys and Rose.
Or we would skip it too.
Unless you really want to go? I one hundred percent do not want to go.
- But I thought you said you w - I thought you wanted to go.
Nope.
I hate that Jackson guy.
Don't even get me started.
Look, now that none of us are going to the party, why don't we just hang here? We can play some Catan? You know, that might get that frown turned upside down.
Oh, you're so lame.
Sure.
I'll give Kam a call as well and see if he wants to come.
What's Catan? Hi.
Shouldn't you be at the pub? I'm heading there now.
I just dropped Patch off.
Oh.
Nice dress.
Thanks.
Where are you headed? Work thing.
Just for nurses or No, doctors too.
Doctors like Evan? See ya, Ryan.
Sully, what did the floor do to you? I don't have the energy to go into it.
Yes.
Lying is exhausting.
You may as well know I got my mark for my teaching prac.
It was a pass.
I never received a mark that low in my life.
Well, you failed your geography test in year seven.
And that science presentation in year five.
The one where you made me a space helmet out of a Doritos bag? It was good costume.
It deprived me of air, and I fainted.
Well, you got a pass 'cause you didn't finish.
Yeah, well, I finished this prac, and I gave it all I had, and it wasn't enough.
- Sully - Don't.
I know exactly what you're gonna say.
That the results speak for themselves, and I'm obviously not cut out to be a teacher.
Maybe you're right.
- Hey.
- He finally decides to show up.
Could have started without me.
Nah, I need to whole crew here.
Tyler, move over.
Oh, there's no room, so - That's alright, I'll take the seat.
- Here you go.
OK, so let's watch this before we all get too wasted.
I dunno.
Booze might make this better.
You know one day you might actually hurt my feelings.
How long is it? It's a mini doc about a guy named Sayid.
He's a Syrian refugee.
He's fascinating.
Like, I was just so inspired by his strength and his love for life.
You know, despite all the hardships he's faced.
Look, I should stop talking about it.
Just watch, and you'll see.
Fear and this man have been constant companions.
And then we both realised we hated our partners.
So we just went for it and got together.
Right.
Um, can I get us another drink? I'll get it.
Champagne? OK, I'll be back in a sec.
What about you? What about what? You and Pav.
Where'd you meet such a handsome man? Oh, um, I guess we met at the hospital.
He was a patient? Oh, no, nothing like that.
So So? What does he do? Oh, um, he's a cop.
Oh, that's a bit sexy.
- Hey.
- Thank God you're here.
Tell you what, these doctors are boring me to death.
No offence.
None taken.
Everyone knows the nurses' parties are much better.
- Oh, right.
- Well, I wouldn't know.
You will soon.
You'll be one.
Yeah, I decided to go back and get my high school certificate.
Oh, nice.
Hopefully if that goes well, get into nursing at uni.
Oh, congratulations, Ana.
That's great.
Thanks.
- G'day.
- Ah, right.
Sorry, Pav, this is Evan.
Hey, mate.
Pleased to meet you.
She must be a real drag to work with.
Yeah.
Constantly showing me up.
She's full of herself.
It's a nightmare.
I'm gonna deliver these.
Nice to meet you.
Righto.
Have a good night.
Hey.
Here you go.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
So what'd I miss? Hey, so can we trade stuff? And negotiate deals.
Oh, cool.
Of course he loves the sound of that.
Should we text Rose and tell her to come? She seemed pretty excited about Jackson's party.
True.
Right.
So your house, your cheer up sesh, so you go first.
So it's only a rough cut, so if you have any criticism, bring it on.
I want you to be harsh.
Seriously, you surprised me.
I didn't think it'd hit me that hard.
Yeah, it was good, D.
Yep, I'm waiting for the but.
But I have needed to whiz for the last ten minutes.
What did you think, Ash? I thought it was great.
Beautiful camera work, and yeah.
- Did you like the story? - Yeah.
You must have found a few parallels with it.
Yeah, I suppose, yeah.
I still reckon you would have made a better subject.
Nah, I reckon I come across better in person than on screen.
Don't worry.
You're actually off the hook 'cause I've already decided what my next doco's gonna be about.
- Oh, yeah? - Uh-huh.
It's actually about how homeless women can't afford sanitary products.
Did you know that they have to use rolled up plastic bags? I didn't know that.
That's terrible.
One sec.
I need you to get me out of here.
It's a free country.
Do what you want.
He seems like a great guy.
I know.
Totally not my type.
Smart, handsome, successful, who would be interested in that? No-no, it's more that I don't know why he's interested in me.
Oh, that's the spirit.
Hey.
Oh, you said no ice.
- That's fine.
- No, no, no, no.
I'll get you another one.
Sorry.
He's interested, trust me.
He could have any chick that he wants.
It doesn't make sense.
Well, love doesn't make sense, does it? I mean, look at Claudia and I.
She's a hot shot doctor, and yet she still manages to smile at the dumb things that come out of my mouth.
Mmm.
You just said the L word.
- No.
Did I? - Yes, you did.
You know what? I gotta go.
- Oh, OK.
See ya.
- Hi, bye.
Hey, hi.
This must all be a bit boring for you.
Oh, no, I never get to go to fancy dos, so, you know, it's fun.
Can't imagine there's that much glamour at the station.
At the station? Claudia was telling us you're a police officer.
You working on any interesting cases at the moment? Unfortunately I'd have to kill you if I told you.
I respect a man with a moral compass.
Yes, moral compass is hard to find.
Here.
Oh, I'm right.
I'm just making a call.
We going out later? I am.
Don't know about you.
What's the problem? Sick of the games.
What games? You rocking up the other night with that guy, Sully.
Yeah, so? So you're rubbing my face in it, and then you leave with him.
What? It's not like that, man.
Sully's a friend.
Yeah, OK.
A friend like me? What are you talking about? For someone who claims to be straight, you sure hang out with a lot of gay guys.
So? You know exactly what I'm saying.
No, I don't know what you're saying.
What are you saying? I'm not I'm not gay.
I'm not.
OK, look, if you can't admit it to yourself, that's fine.
Waste someone else's time.
Ash! Hey.
You shouldn't be out this late.
Can't tell me what to do, unless we're at school.
When you coming back anyway? Never at this rate.
Why not? 'Cause I didn't do well on my prac.
And? And maybe teaching's not for me.
So you're just gonna quit? You're weird.
Why's that? Imagine if it was the other way around, and I failed something.
I didn't exactly fail.
Whatever.
Just listen.
Would you tell me to drop out? - That's different.
- How? 'Cause Mr Fraser said that I've got a Oh, who cares what he says? He's a douchebag.
Laila, language.
See? You were born to be a teacher.
As annoying as it is.
I thought you were happy to see me go.
Nah, you're alright.
Got me to read.
You know, I've been into this book lately.
It's about this prince who meets a pilot, and then asks him to draw a sheep.
And then he meets all these other people, and then ends up going back to his own planet.
And he's OK with it.
That, like, pretty much made me cry.
You know there's a sequel.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Maybe I'll have to come back to school and we can study that together.
And so I can kick your butt at handball.
Oof! You're on.
Hey, I think I need to go out.
Tell you what, I could smash back a pie.
Shall we? - Did I say that out loud? - You did.
I just meant that I could do with some real food.
OK.
- Ready now? - Uh-huh.
Ready.
So this is where you've been hiding.
Not that I blame you.
If I hear more gyno tell a joke where the punchline is "uvula", I'll scream.
You bored? You told those people I'm a cop.
Yeah, I know, just it just slipped out.
It was easier than explaining you know.
It's not a big deal, is it? Well, I think you're avoiding who I am.
No, I'm not.
You were a cop.
I was a cop.
Well, what'd you want me to tell them? The truth.
I'm not telling those muppets my boyfriend's a drug dealer.
Well, tell them that I'm a great cook or something.
Oh, yeah.
Oh, this is Pav.
He's a great cook, and he's unemployed and he's on a pension.
You're ashamed of me.
- No, I'm not.
- Yeah, you are.
- No, I'm not - No, you actually are.
No, I'm not.
But is that all that you want? Just to sell a bit of weed to top up your pension.
That's it? But is that honestly what you want your life to look like? Well, I wanted it to look like being happy with you, but that's not going to be enough for you.
Is it? I mean, you're really ambitious.
I'm not ambitious at all.
And I'm I was in all the way.
I'm more into this than you are, actually, if we're gonna be honest.
And I don't know, should should we really be doing this? I don't know.
Maybe not.
Yeah, maybe not.
Don't think we're meant to be in here.
Ah, it's fine, trust me.
I don't know, Barb is pretty anal about her cafeteria.
You said you wanted a pie, though, right? Well, then we'd better get you one.
You're used to this, aren't you? Used to what? Getting what you want, when you want it.
Is that a dig? Ah, yeah.
Let me guess, you think I'm some spoilt doctor who's never had to do it tough.
Aren't you? No.
I've, um I've had to get these hands dirty.
What? I am a bona fide country boy, thank you very much.
- Really? But you seem so - What, well spoken? Civilised? I was gonna say prissy.
- Oh, prissy.
- Uh-huh.
OK.
Alright.
That might have something to do with the boarding school education.
Knew it.
You are a rich kid.
OK, so my family own some cattle.
OK, we have a lot of cattle.
I didn't think it would make you like me less.
Who said I liked you at all? Alright, when are we playing again? What? We get it.
You love Catan, you're amazing at it.
You're probably gonna take over the world one day.
Yes, thank you.
I've got to get home, or my Dad's going to kill me.
- I'll walk you.
- Sure.
Hey, thanks for letting us trash your place tonight.
My pleasure.
- See ya.
- Bye.
Um, just before I go, Dane's a jerk.
- Hang tomorrow? - Can't.
And you should probably do something nice with Amira.
Good point.
I'll see ya.
Bye.
Gross.
- Mmm.
- Oh, my God.
Yeah.
Tastes like home.
Want to talk about what happened? Not even a little bit.
Oh, hey.
I was just about to close up.
I thought Watto'd be here at least.
Well, I dared him to eat a tequila worm.
He had three and then ran out screaming something about stealing a car and driving to Mexico.
Right.
Gotta get my kicks somehow.
What's with the monkey suit? Oh, there was a do at the hospital, that's all.
Did you see Ana there? You missed the boat with her, I'll telling ya.
Seriously.
I don't know what you're talking about.
- I have a girlfriend, so - Oh, right.
Speaking of which, where's Claudia? I don't know.
Well, I had a great night, thanks for asking.
Yeah? Yeah.
I'm going to stick with teaching.
Who cares what Mum or Fraser think? You've always known what you wanted.
If we don't do what feels right, we'll never be happy.
I'm sorry, man.
I care about what you think.
You don't want to know what I think.
Jackson gets hailed as a hero while you get judged for it.
That's the way it is.
Yeah, well, I'm sick of it.
You and Pav.
Why'd you break up? Did he put your heart in the microwave too?
