'Man, your boobs are as intense as your arse.
'Hello, boob.
' Oh, my God! I can't believe you've got rats.
That's disgusting! Yeah, I know, it's awful! I don't know how they got there, but sixth floor, they must have had a ladder, or something.
We're watching that murdered nun documentary.
- Oh - So what did your man say, to smoke them out? - Smoke them out? - What? No, Clint Eastwood's rat catching service was closed, Shona.
What are you talking about? Smoking out is a thing.
How else do you get rid of a rat? You sound like a Cockney criminal.
How do you get rid of a rat, boy? Do you want me to pause this while we're talking about rats? - No, no.
- I will if you want me to.
No, I'm dying to watch this.
I just like the nun.
Mm.
Have you eaten? Oh, yeah, I have, actually.
I ate at Richard's house.
- Who? - Richard.
The man who I teach for.
- What?! - Yeah, he included me in dinner.
Jesus, Aine.
- No, don't - Be careful.
- I knew you'd say that.
- It was totally professional.
- Of course I'm gonna say that.
I'm watching this! They've just moved that head priest to the other parish.
Oh, gosh.
They're called bishops, by the way.
- Bishops whatever! - Head priest.
- Head priest! - Oh, Vish! - I wish they were called that.
Who murdered the nun? Do you know what I'm just gonna watch this at home.
- Come on.
- You guys need to - No, come on.
- Sit down, we'll be good.
Fuck! - Are you fucking kidding me! - I'm sorry.
- Aine! - Sorry.
- Come on! Oh, no Oh.
I - What's happened? - Ah - Why are you so late? - Does Vish ever wee sitting down? - No.
- Then I think I just saw him having a poo.
Oh! Oh, no.
Was he naked? Er, not from the waist up, no.
Jesus, God love him.
Just pretend it never happened.
Ah, the old family motto.
Ow! Shona! - That literally actually hurt my arm.
- No, it'll teach you to knock next time.
Did you call your man? When are the rats out? I didn't know you started eating chicken again.
When did you start eating chicken? I thought you watched Cowspiracy.
It says it in your Netflix.
- Cows are the worst.
- Yeah.
Chicken is not a cow and I knew you were logging into my Netflix.
You're the one who's been messing up our algorithms.
Oh, ho-ho, Vish I am so sorry.
- It's not funny.
- It's a little bit funny.
It's not, it's disgusting.
It's just I'm not used to boys being here and having to knock.
Well, I don't wanna stay here, but I have to because your sister hates houses that have private bathrooms and underfloor heating.
I moved my toothbrush in three weeks ago.
That's enough for now.
I go to bed with it every night when I miss you.
- Eurgh! - Eurgh.
All right, I am off to stag it up.
Good luck! Sounds like hell.
It is, but he's the last one of our gang that's getting married, so Unless one of us does it again.
Oh! Well, let me know when you plan to marry your ex-wife again.
She was too short for me, anyway.
All right.
Thanks for this, love you.
Oh, love you, too, Vish.
I'm really sorry, again, about poo-gate.
OK, it was Hey! You know, you don't have to take care of her all weekend.
- Huh! - It's not good for either one of you.
I'm not, I'm gonna kick her out, get her some fresh air.
- I promise.
- Oh, OK.
- You need to relax.
- Yes.
- Chill out.
- Yes, I know! - I'm not working.
- Good.
- I'm gonna chill out.
- Bye.
- Bye.
- Don't get killed.
- I won't.
Bye! Oh, bye, Vish.
Um, when you're on the stag just don't show anyone your penis cos that's just for Shona and me to see.
OK? Bye.
OK, what did your man say when you called him? - What? - When are you getting back in? Oh, the rats? Um Well, they'll all technically be dead by tomorrow, but then they have to do something awful, like, scoop up the bodies afterwards, or something.
- So I think Monday.
- In that case three things.
- Mm-hm.
- Charlotte's coming over to work, don't tell Vish.
My best friend, Charlotte.
Well, very funny, so make yourself scarce.
What? Shona Can I not just hide in your room? No, I'd feel bad asking you to do that.
So, just, you know, leave instead.
- What am I gonna do? - Aine, I'm not your event and live planner, OK? Just figure it out.
And it's Saturday, go do something fun.
OK.
Second and third things.
We've got a cousin in London.
Mam wants us to hang out with him.
Oh, fuck that! Is he Irish? We have to, OK.
Apparently they were nice after daddy died.
What? Yeah.
They, um I don't know, they threw some money in for the coffin, or something.
I don't know.
Anyway, you gotta hang out with him.
I can't cos I've too much on.
- Oh, and this lad's Irish.
- Who, her cousin? Yeah, but no, the lad I'm gonna fix you up with.
- No! Shona.
- Yes.
- I don't want - I swear to you you will love him.
- No.
- I know him, he works on the floor below me.
- No, no, no.
- He's nice, a little bit weird, like you.
No set-ups, oh, my God.
I'm glad you've got dental floss.
I've had a bit of celery stuck in my back tooth for, like, three days.
Aine, floss over the sink.
Oh! Don't walk around my house getting bacteria all over the place.
OK, so Why don't you head out for a bit.
Yeah? It's not good for you to be hanging around the house all day.
Or, just with me.
- Hey? - Yeah, OK.
Well, if you're sticking around I'm gonna Skype mam - and you can have a chat with her.
- No, Shona.
- What? You don't need to threaten me.
I'm not.
Oh, my God.
I'm not threatening you.
God! Fine! I'll leave this house full of lies and deceit.
Smoked out, like a rat.
Look, you have to call her, anyway.
- You haven't talked to her in ages.
- Yeah, I'll We can Skype her later when I'm not here.
Oh, my God, you're such a baby.
You're a brat! What? I text her last week to see if she was dead, so - Ow! - That's not even funny, don't say that.
Shona! You can't do the same place twice.
It's illegal.
- Bye.
- Bye! What brings you here today? Um So maybe romance, I suppose, that's kind of a classic.
Anyone coming along who thinks I'm not totally shite.
OK.
I'll just check-in.
Your ownish is very female.
Oh, my God, am I gonna fall in love with a woman? - Don't interrupt.
- Sorry.
Male energy is very exotic to you.
You're very star-struck by male energy.
Yeah.
A big dick energy.
You need to manage that.
- Mm-hm.
- And I'm getting a brother figure.
Oh, yeah, that's probably Vish.
He's my maybe brother-in-law.
OK, so I'm getting a three-figure.
Three is unbalancing.
What, so, like, I'm unbalancing What, so they don't want me there? - Are you there a lot? - Yeah.
I think they like having me there.
Do you think they don't like having me there? I don't know them.
You've got a fire in you.
- OK, what's your name again? - Aine.
- Aine.
You've got a fire in you and you can use that to heat yourself up.
- That's why I try - Don't interrupt.
Sorry.
Or you can use that to burn yourself and everyone else around you down.
Right, well, I was just, sort of, hoping for the lottery numbers, but OK.
I suppose that's the new crossing the palm with silver, is it? It's easier for the tax receipts.
Yeah.

Drama? No.
Why, does Freddie say she comes with drama? Shouldn't even be talking about her, do you know that? Arse clown.
He didn't say anything.
That's not what I meant.
He's actually been asking how she is a few times.
I know he's enemy number one.
Think he's seeing someone new now.
Is he? Who? Maybe I shouldn't have said anything.
No, I -- Oh, God.

Something wrong with that door man, mister.
Oh, my God.
