Episode 3

1 I'm going to find Gog and his mate.
You got the child support, yeah? Yeah, I've got it.
How? First time in six months you're Daddy Warbucks.
Cage fighting, that's all.
He doesn't like me.
He does.
Guv likes everyone.
There were millions of times I nearly walked out of that hospital.
But you didn't.
But not because I'm Mary bloody Magdalen.
It's because I love you.
I told you, he went for a drink with Asbo.
Don't.
Mal, please don't.
Mal, Rob, grab the working at height gear.
Who else? I'll go up, gaffer.
Spike.
Come on, then.
How we doing in there? On our way up now, guv.
Excuse me! Excuse me.
Excuse me? Hello? I'm Cindy Cornell.
HELP! Aargh! Ouch.
You've been in the wars, haven't you? What happened there? AARGH! Oh, man.
I can't believe we're going out with Asbo.
Don't start.
Little Al don't like him.
Rob don't like him.
Mince don't like him.
I like him.
You can't write someone off just cos of their postcode.
I can.
See, there's no bag so there's no loss of suction.
What's it? A Dyson, is it? Nah, it's a Dysoni.
Very similar, it's just from Tokyo.
I keep telling you about these presents, George.
It's too much.
You don't have to do it.
Yeah, but I want to, so just just take it.
George.
Pack it in.
You'll be wanting to get off now, I expect.
Mind how you go.
He's got Churchill Estate running through him like a stick of fucking rock.
Some people, it's game over from day one, you know? Thing is, Mal, you go round thinking like that, pretty soon you wind up wanting to top yourself.
Know what I mean? Give him a chance.
I have given him a chance.
Well, give him another one, then! By the way, your dad rung.
Out in two weeks.
Ain't got nowhere to go, as per.
I goes to him, "If you think you're stopping here" Don't let him, Mum.
Excuse me! I did tell him! I said I'm using the spare room for my quilting.
He goes, "I can always come in with you!" Yeah, like that is exactly what I need three weeks after a hysterectomy! You have a good time, boy.
I'm dead proud of you.
Mum, leave it out.
Yeah, I know.
I'll be all right in a minute! It's this bloody HRT.
Go on, off you go! So.
You got any further with the erm you know, the wedding? Nah, wedding's off.
Look at it! In my car! I've told her, hundreds of times I've told her.
Disgusting! Woman's an animal! Look at you.
New boots and panties.
Want to go down the Boleyn? Nah.
Going up Romford.
Work thing.
A work thing, is it? What's that mean? No scum allowed? Not being funny, mate, but you've been shutting me out recently.
Got to admit it.
Get a move on, Asbo! What they call you ASBO for? You ain't got an ASBO.
Just a nickname.
I've got to go, Gog.
No, it's rude is what it is.
It's disrespectful.
I ain't having that.
Worse things they could call you though, eh, Chubs? Don't know the half of it, do they, Kev and the gang? You follow me, I'll throw you down them fucking stairs! Want to watch Strictly, Mrs S? Go away George.
I'm having me bath.
Just, you know, really happy for you both.
Oh, cheers mate.
And a cranberry juice for me.
What about a dry white wine? Nah, I'm just joking mate.
Give us another beer and six shots of that blue stuff.
Blimey! What happened to no drinking in front of the Watch? Oh, well.
In for a penny.
Oof! She's friendly.
Jesus, Asbo! You going to let anyone else get a word in edgeways? Right.
One two three.
Come on, Al! So, there's no problems then? No.
No problems.
That's good! That's good.
Well, best of luck.
Listen.
He knows, don't he? I mean, he's not going to get carried away? No, course not.
But he will do whatever it takes to make it look real.
And so will you.
Yeah.
You'll be fine.
I'll see you after.
We'll have a little drink.

Right.
Listen, can you stick around? He's in quite a bit of distress up there.
Supposed to be in Ipswich by four.

We missed all that, didn't we? We was lucky.
Up visiting Den's dad in Yorkshire.
Do you remember that B and B? What an horrible trip that was, do you remember it? I don't think it's too much to ask, do you, Kev, for £60 a night, not to find someone else's pubic hair on your pillow? Anyway, come back Sunday night, we couldn't get over it, could we? "Hooligan tool.
