''Fee-fi-fo-fum,'' said the giant as he hunted for Jack.
Who bought you this? Nanny.
- Do you like it? - It's OK.
It's not Pixar though, is it? No.
It's boring.

I know, but I like you reading it.
- Right.
Where were we? - The fee-fi bit.
The fee-fi bit.
- So, listen.
- Yeah? The giant is running after Jack and he's going to kick his head in.
He's going, ''Fee-fi-fo I'm going to batter you, you little'' So Jack was a little bit of a coward, if the truth be told.
He does a runner.
He slides down the beanstalk so fast he gets a burn right on his bum.
Right? You know like when you go down a rope at school.
You've got no control over it! It barks and it barks and it barks! I can't hear the TV! I hear it in the bedroom, in the living room.
It's every night! I swear to God, one of these days I'm going to take that dog He poo'd all over the landing.
I could taste it while I was having me supper.
- Supper? Who do you think you are? - Right.
- Trevor, take it down, mate.
- He threatened me.
I threatened nobody.
That dog I'm trying to have me dinner! I 'll make a complaint about him.
Nobody's making a complaint, all right? - He's a pedophile.
- I'm not a pedophile.
Jesus Christ.
He sits there all day on his computer, wanking.
- I do not.
- I don't care if he does.
God knows what he's looking at.
- I'm not wanking.
- Fucking hands down, right? With his bog roll and his underpants round his ankles.
Wank, wank, wank.
Mary, keep your fucking voice down and get the dog in the flat before I throw it over the fucking side.
- All day, she leaves it out here.
- I know, I know what she does.
'Cos you told me last night, didn't you? And three times last week.
- I can't take much more - Why are you doing this to me? - What? I I don't know what.
- Answer the question, Trevor.
'Cos I've only been on duty five minutes, and here I am again.
- But the poo! - Do you think I enjoy it? - No.
- Finally! Come on, mate.
Look, I'd get more sense out of that dog than I would with her, right? But you, you are just this side of normal.
I'm fucking I'm fucking struggling here, mate.
- Do you understand me? - But the poo! Right.
If you do this one more time, I'm going to fucking kill you.
Do you understand me? All right? All right, good man.
Go inside now.
Get inside, Trev.
Good lad.
I came here to get fixed.
And we both know I'm not fixed.
If you take care for yourself and you support yourself and most of all, you be kind to yourself .
that will help.
I know.
But at the moment it feels, like you're just dropping me off and driving away.
- I've given you the tools.
- Have you? I don't mean that.
Yeah, I know you have.
You have.
But I can't keep going home to them, right, like this.
I'm a fucking shell.
The job has ruined me.
Every night there's spit on me face, there's blood on me boots.
And it never stops.
- It's such important work.
- Hmm.
Is it? I don't think it is.
I think it's whack-a-mole.
Except the moles wear trackies.
But you need to focus on the good that you do.
I can't remember the last time I did some good.
I don't think that's true.
It is.
- Yeah? - Have you seen her? - Who? - Casey.
- Mate, I'm in the middle of working here.
- I need to speak to her.
- Who? - Who the f You've got me swearing in front of our Lexie here.
Say hello from me.
Say hello yourself, after you've found Town Centre Casey.
No, mate, I can't do that.
- Oh, come on, lad.
Sort it for me.
- I'm not picking anyone up for you.
But I need to speak to her.
I'm working, Carl.
I thought we had an understanding that when I'm working we leave it alone? Understandings are out the window, lad.
I just need Casey.
- What's up? - Nothing to do with you.
No, you asking me to find her is making it to do with me.
She's just a baghead, why do you want her? - She owes me.
- So I'm a debt collector now? Oh, why're you making a song and dance out of this? Just help me out, mate.
No, I'm not making a song and dance out of it.
But it's not what our thing is, is it? Our thing is Jesus Christ.
You've got more song and dance than Sammy Davis Junior.
Find Casey.
Piss off, Carl.
She shouldn't be watching this, Carl.
It's got killing in it.
I'm all right.
It's not real killing.
How many times? She's too young.
Go brush your teeth.
Hey, hugs.
- I've got to go out, babe.

And you of all people should know that.

- Jesus Christ, lad.
- All right, where's the weed? - There isn't any weed.
- Why don't you believe me? - Because you're a liar, it's what you do.
- Shit, this.
- Tell you what, though.
- Where did you get this money? - It's me dole.
Where did you get this money? You asking me, yeah, and then hitting me, - not going to make me tell you.

- I don't think you need to worry, mate.
I wouldn't mind a house and that though, with a garden, so me baby's ma and her could stay sometimes.
My dad never lived with us as kids, so .
it'd be good to be like a family, do you know what I mean? Maybe even go for walks, down the beach even.
- Marco? - What? I'm not really arsed, to be honest.
Rude, him.
- Where's Casey? - Everyone's out looking for her.

He's just quiet.
I heard stories about him.

you wouldn't be friends with them if you met them in real life.
- Real life? - Out there.
Look, I know some of the fellas have it in for him, but he was a cracking bobby back in the day, you know.

What happened, then? It's complicated.
How complicated can it be? You haven't been here long, have you? Fuck sake.
Casey! - No trouble.
- Sorry, mate.

Who mentioned sex? Where are you taking me, then? On a message.
You're working for Carl Sweeney, aren't you? What do you know about Carl Sweeney? I know he's a blert, who's going to kick me head in.
Is that where you're taking me? - Nobody's going to kick your head in.
- You sure about that? What's he going to do to you if I'm there? Oh, he'd walk right through you.
I'm a copper.
Nothing's going to happen.
How long have you known me? No, come on, how long? - Four year or something? - Right.
And have I always been fair with you? - No.
- Fucking hell.
Everyone says he owns a copper.
I should have known it was you.
Why should you have known it was me? 'Cos you're mad, aren't you? You're the fucking loon.
No, I'm not.
You always look like you're going to start crying.

Don't feel bad about it.
You got to do what you got to do.

You what? Right, how much? Like, that.
Oh, fuck! What were you going to do with that much coke? I was just in Willo's gaff and he was stoned, so I robbed it! I just didn't think it through.
Well, you should have.
I'm a smackhead.
Thinking shit through's not a strong point.
Right, just give it him back.
- I can't.
- Why not? 'Cos it got robbed off me.
Fucking hell! Who by?! I don't know! I was off me cake.
And now he's going to kill me 'cos I can't give him it back! Look, he's not going to hurt you if I'm here.

You just shut me down.
Just like that, you shut me down.
I don't have a voice here? - Time and place.
- Really? That's what you're saying? Do you want him to lose his job? He shouldn't be in the job, Phil.
Look at the state of him.
He's under a lot of pressure.
And you kicking off at him, or making unfounded Unfounded? We saw the man on the floor, holding his face.
You even said he was out of order.
- I know what I'm talking about.
- And I don't? No.
If you've got a problem with a fellow officer, save it till you're back at the nick.
You're supposed to be teaching me how to do the job properly.
- And I am.
- No.
Honestly, Phil, you're really not.
Come on, mate.
All right, see you later, yeah? Go on.
Adam! Adam, wait there, mate.
All right, listen, you have a smashing day, yeah? You be a good boy, yeah? OK, let's go.
See you later, son.
See you, mate.
Thanks so much.
What the hell are you doing texting me at tea-time? I I'm sorry.
I just.
I just wanted to chat.
So, you just text me out of the blue while Chris is sitting opposite me? - I didn't think.
- Hmm.
I was just a bit fed up and .
I thought you might want to talk, too.
I don't know.
I was having dinner with my husband and daughter I know you're as fed up as I am.
I love my husband, Ray.
Mr Carson? Invoice for you, sir.
Hey, Mum.
Here's my hero policeman.
How you doing? You're late.
Well, it was a busy night.
Did you sleep? It's you who should be worrying about sleeping.
You should be going home to bed.
Coming round here every morning.
Kate and Tilly will want to see you before school.
Well, they know where I am.
They'll think you don't want to go home.
- They popped in yesterday.
- Mm.
She brought me them lovely flowers.
Oh, right, yeah.
You look shattered.
I wish you'd get some decent sleep.
Well, I'll sleep when you do.
I'm scared I won't wake up.
You're not dead yet.
I want to get the most out of this place.
It costs enough.
How was your night? It was OK.
You know, it was the usual.
You know what, actually I did a good thing.
Isn't that what you're supposed to do, anyway? I suppose so, yeah.
So, what was it? The good thing.
It was just a thing for someone who normally doesn't matter.
Everyone matters.
Mm, they don't, Mum.
Not really.
So, what made this someone matter this time? Well, she's in a hole, and I pulled her out.
Might make a difference for a change.
Hey, you all right? You all right? I'm fine - Do you want me to close that? - No.
It's a bit cold.
It's nice I like it, the breeze.
Hey, do you still want to? You could get into trouble.
Hm, trouble's my middle name.
You worry about you.
Your middle name's Perry.
And I have to worry about you because you don't worry about yourself.
Do you remember when I used to roll cigarettes for Dad? Do you remember, Mum? No.
Do you remember when I dropped his bag of baccy? You do.
Come on, you must do.
I don't.
And if I did If I did, I'd say I did.
But I don't.
All right.
'Cos I know the damage it does.
Living with a monster.
But you're not a monster, Chris.
'Cos that was your dad, and this is you.
You sure about that? Yes, I am.
Maybe speak to your wife about your fears? How would that go? Well, she wants us to talk.
She wants us to be a fam I can't I can't show them this, can I? I love them too much.
You think you're being clever 'cos you've got some saviour complex over Casey.
Well, you've made a bad mistake, lad.
Another one in a long line of them.
But this one is the worst.
And this one is going to cost you, lad.
Nah, I'm still here, aren't I? Do you want to buy some drugs? Coke.
Ten grands' worth.
