Wagwan, wagwan?
- What you man sayin'? You good?
- Come on, bro.

Why ain't his feet
touchin' the ground?
- Hey, wagwan, pussio?

Let go of the bag!

- Oh shit!

Fuckin' what?
Huh? Come, then! Come, then!
Let go of the fuckin' bag!

Hey, come here!
Fuck, let's go, man!
- Oi! You lot, come here!
- Gonna merk you, pussy!
- You lot are fuckin' wet.
- Yeah? I'mma see you!
- Police. You all right?
- Hey, quick, man!
- Have they got the fuckin' bag, bro?
- Fuck the bag, bro. Let's go!
So you go down
the side of the buildin',
turn left.
There's two French doors
overlooking the garden.
That's the room.
I'll keep the door open for you.
Say again.
I go down the building and what?
Go down the side of the buildin',
turn left.
You'll see two French doors
overlooking the garden.
That's the room.
So when I get in them French doors,
who am I gonna be seein'?
Veronica Gamble.
Now, does she have family?
She have family,
but since her dementia come on her,
they don't come.
They neglect her bad.
So they don't come ever,
or they don't come often?
They don't come at all.
I'm the only one that goes in that room.
She always sleeping.
Will she be okay?
She'll be fine.
The next important one is the CCTV.
You can handle that one?
You're not just sayin'
what you think I wanna hear, right?
It's important.
- You all right?
- Yeah. I'm fine.
Where you from?
Saint Lucia.
Next week, you could be there
on the beach.
Just get these few things right,
then you don't have to worry about money.
How does that sound?
It sounds good.
It's got one number on it.
You gotta text it twice.
Once when the cameras are off
and once when they arrive.
You got that?
You ain't gotta look at it now.
Just put that in your bag.
- You off to work now, right?
- Yeah.
Okay, well, it's very important
that it's a normal day.
Don't change anything.
- Normal day.
- Yeah, normal day.
Guess we gotta trust her, innit?
I know what I'm fuckin' doin'.
She will come through.
Yo. What's your guy sayin'?
He's askin' about his money. He wants
five now and five when he finds her.
A'ight, well, give it to him, innit.
I'll sort you out later or somethin'.
I'll get him goin' with the five,
and I'll put it on your account.
Tell him to be fuckin' quick.
Was she talkin' to anyone
about it?
I knew so many girls in pen
that got hooked on that shit.
Same thing.
Sayin' they're takin' the edge off,
then it just spirals.
What the fuck?
It's not that fuckin' hard to understand.
Lauryn drowned because she couldn't handle
the fuckin' shit that she was smokin'.
She weren't about that junkie life.
Mandy's not saying she was, babe.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
I'll get it.
What you sayin'?
This the big man, yeah?
This is him.
Good as gold.
Aren't you?
So you're a auntie now, Jaq.
Hm. She is.
How's it goin'?
Fucked if I know, bro.
I know the feelin'.
You ever wanna talk, I'm here.
You was there for me.
So I'm here.
Anything you need.
Actually, there is somethin'.
Yeah, man, talk to me.
I need a name.
I wanna know
who the fuck was servin' to Lauryn.
Come on.
Becks, you mind if we get a minute?
Yeah, course.
Just let me know if you need anything.
Come on. You're okay.
You're okay.
Thank you.
This ain't on you.
This ain't on you.
This ain't on whoever sold to her.
And I'll keep it 100
this is on her.
And that's somethin' you gotta live with
that you're fucked.
I know what you're on.
But that road don't end good.
It don't make you feel better.
Thought you said you was here to help me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, but listen.
Look at me.
It's not on you.
It's pointless.
Don't be me.
You got a good thing here.
Don't fuck it up.
Call me.
You idiot.
Can you even see without your glasses?
No, it's not that one.
- You've got moves, you know.
- Yeah, I know.
But how are you gonna keep up
when I'm on stage at Wembley
and I got bare girls onto me?
Ah, shut up, you idiot.
First of all, you're not even tall enough,
and you're bare dumb. You don't go school.
Listen, no one'll care about that
when they see all of this.
Nah, 'cause you're not allowed
other girls.
What do you mean,
I'm not allowed other girls?
You're not allowed other girls.
- Nah?
- Nah.
- Not even one?
- Not one.
- Or two?
- Not two. Nah.
- Come bounce second period with me.
- Why would I do that?
'Cause I know this nice little spot,
and we can get one of them
little "old lady" drinks you like.
- Old lady?
- All right, grown up, innit.
Listen, coffee tastes nasty anyway.
No, it doesn't.
First of all, it's sophisticated.
Everyone in the fashion industry
drinks it. Okay, imagine me, in Paris,
latte in one hand,
sketchbook in the other.
You on the other side of the street,
sweeping up all the rubbish
'cause your dance career didn't work out.
- Are you in the fashion industry?
- No, I'm not.
- Thank you!
- But are you in the dance industry?
- Thank you!
- Are you?
- No, you're not!
- Sorry!
W Wait a minute.
Wait a minute.
Who Who authorized the transfer?
Ultimately, me. But after our accountants
and finance director had authorized it.
No, no, who asked for the payment?
Where was the request coming from?
Do you need to take that?
No. No.
I just need to know where the request
for the transfer was coming from.
The investor, Soundrock Properties.
Fuck me.
Why the fuck did you let 'em
have the money, Danielle?
Fuck these things.
Own our fuckin' lives, don't they?
Why did you make the transfer?
Everything was in order.
You have no idea the shit caused
when Soundrock pulled out.
Suddenly, we had
a £15 million hole in the budget.
Fortunately, another investor stepped in.
So the The 15, the whole 15 is gone?
Our lawyers were arguing very strongly
to start proceedings,
but that would've exposed
a certain amount of dirty laundry.
So we pressed the button
and made the transfer.
I have a Zoom, so why don't you
talk to Soundrock yourself?
Yeah, that's very
That's very good advice,
which I would take
if I had any fuckin' idea where she was!
has fuckin' disappeared!
You need to calm down.
When does telling anyone to calm down
actually fuckin' calm them down?
You shouldn't have made
the transfer of the funds, Danielle!
You seriously need to calm down.
Fuck you!
Jeffrey! Come on, man!
Fuck, man.
What did they say?
What did they say?
They, um
transferred the funds a week ago.
Transferred to who?
Sou Soundrock.
The, uh
The shell
Shell company that Lithe set up.
So what does that mean?
Means that Lithe has Has your money.
Lithe Lithe and Lizzie.
This has
This has got Lizzie's prints all over it.
Where's my money, bro?
Uh, your
What can I tell you? It's It's gone.
Ooh! Ooh-hoo-hoo!
Yeah. One, two, hook. One, two, hook.
Up. Again.
Hey, Sully.
Two secs.
One more.
That's it, done. You got it.
What's up, boy?
Call me boy again,
you'll be dead in a fuckin' week.
Relax, man. Relax.
We'll be up and runnin' soon.
But before that,
I mean, I thought me and you could talk.
Mm, talk about what?
I think me and you are very alike, Sully.
I think you're smart. I like you.
And I think, well, me and you,
I think we should do somethin'.
I'm being serious.
I think we have a future.
Tadgh is on his way out,
if you know what I mean.
I think this here
we could build on this, man.
You're gonna cut him out?
No, I'm not I'm not saying that.
But if the opportunity comes about,
I'm gonna step in.
'Cause I do have a vision or two.
But I need someone beside me.
Partnership, yes.
We'll meet Tadgh soon, when he's here,
but this, I'm interested in this.
Let's talk about it.
Okay. I'll be in touch.
All right.
Thank you. You're gonna like it.
- What if it burns my mouth?
- It's not gonna burn your mouth.
- Thank you.
- Seven-sixty, please.
- Hm?
- What?
The prices are on the board.
Mm-mm. Mm-mm.
Come on.
Mm-hm, mm-mm.
There you go. Thank you.
- Shall we go sit down?
- Yeah.
We can drink it while we sit,
and you can tell me what you think.
But, um, I
Come, let's just walk.
It's nasty, fam!
No, don't smell it. Drink it.
- But it smells nasty.
- Just drink it.
I ain't gonna drink somethin'
that smells nasty.
- Them olders gassed you, didn't they?
- Who?
Si and them man.
They were Jamie's best friends.
- So you reckon you're a gangsta?
- Shut up, man.
Nah, I'm just saying, 'cause they are, so
I dunno.
You know, it'd be really shit
if you got killed or somethin'.
You should just be my private gangsta.
Ain't gonna get killed. Are you mad?
No one thinks
they're gonna get killed, Stef.
I don't think my dad thought
he was gonna get killed.
- Erin.
- Mm?
Do you like me?
That's not how this goes, Stef.
You have to tell me if you like me first.
Well, yeah, I do like you, innit.
Do you wanna come round mine tonight?
If you want.
- At the home?
- Yeah, they'll be calm about it.
- I could, but we're not doin' nothin'.
- Nah, not like that.
And we have to get tested.
- Tested for what?
- STDs and that.
- For real?
- You have to be proper about this stuff.
And I need to go on the pill straightaway
if we need to do anything.
I like you, Stef,
but I'm not tryna be your baby mum.
And, I mean, everyone knows
what's eventually gonna happen
between two people who like each other.
They just never say anything
'cause they're too embarrassed.
I just think you shouldn't waste time.
You should be grown about it.
Have you done it before?
What do you think I am?
Have you?
I mean, there's nothing
to be scared about, right?
Everyone does it.
So why are we gettin' tested?
Because Rachel's older sister said her man
caught chlamydia from his best mate
'cause he sat on the same toilet seat.
So come on.
Ah. Fuck.
Hi, baby. You all right?
Just got off the phone to Kim.
And look, it's been a week,
and Kim's really been pressing me about
Shell. Shell.
Now ain't the time.
- You said we'd talk about it later
- I said, now ain't the time!
- What are you talkin' about?
- I said, fuck the nail shop, man!
What is it? You think you're the only one
with fuckin' things to do?
- Dushane, what
- It ain't happenin'!
The whole shit's done.
- Are you hurt?
- Stop!
Dushane, talk to me. What's goin' on?
- Hey! Look, please. Where you goin'?
- Shelley, stop.
- Just wait.
- Shelley!
Wait! You can talk to me.
Tell me what's goin' on.
I'm here.
Stay out my fuckin' business, yeah?
Nah, I told them
on the phone, innit.
So do you want to be tested?
Nah, look,
I know what it is, yeah?
It's just bare itchy.
Like, just buss me the cream.
If you fill out one of these forms first
- Bare itchy. He needs cream.
- Erin Wright?
Stefan Tovell?
Okay, and when was the last time
you had sex?
Um Uh, like, I I ain't
- You've never had sex before?
- Nah.
Have you given or received
oral sex, anal sex?
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah.
None of that, like.
I'm a virgin, innit.
But I had a hand job before. Twice.
Okay. Uh, Stefan, so what makes you
want to get tested today?
Um, my girlfriend said we should.
Good for her.
Yeah, we might have to name you Delroy
for real, you know.
After your granddaddy.
Me and your mummy
were crackin' up about that.
I know you're tryna tell me.
Yes, you are.
I can see it in your little eyes.
Definitely got
your mummy's beautiful eyes.
That's so nice.
So nice seeing you smile.

- Nah, mate.
Got you to thank for that, innit.
Nah, weren't me.
- That was Mandy, weren't it?
- Do you want anything?
No, I'm all right. Thanks.
