Trying (2020) s02e04 Episode Script


No, I'm I'm worried
you're gonna get hurt.
It'll be fine.
Jason, you can't just cycle
to work like it's nothing.
This isn't Amsterdam.
No, it's not. Otherwise,
you'd be way more chill.
Jason, cycling is so dangerous.
Cycling is dangerous, and it's boring.
How is that even possible?
And that helmet is ten years old.
It's doing absolutely nothing.
This? Ah, this is good as gold.
Don't worry about that.
You look like Carmen Miranda.
You're too cocky.
It's always the cocky people
that have accidents.
That's why I never sang on
the back of the school bus.
- Or watch films on planes.
- Oh, yeah.
- Oh. No!
- Oi, Nikki.
I'm worried.
Look, you said we need to do
more for the environment.
- This is good for the environment.
- Yes, we are recycling kids.
That is enough.
Oh, my God. Please don't
tell anyone I said that.
Just be careful, okay?
Trust me, I'll be fine.
- What? Who's that from?
- It's from Maria.
Who's that?
The young girl The woman I sponsor.
- Honduras.
- Oh.
- Jase. Every time.
- Yeah. What? Okay.
Can you get the door for me, please?
- Yeah.
- Thank you.
Oh. Don't forget we're meeting
Princess's social worker
at the school at 1:00.
Mm-hmm. Both hands.
I don't want us to relax just because
we've been selected for her.
We could be un-selected. That's
just two letters different.
- That's not gonna happen. Okay?
- Okay.
All right. Love you.
- Love you. Be careful.
- All right.
- You all right?
- Yeah.
The bloke in the shop said
there's a bit of a knack to it.
- Ah.
- Yeah, it's fine. All right.
- Okay.
- See See ya.
I know he's only six, but he was
born with ears, wasn't he?
Go on.
- Oh. Hi there.
- Oh, hi. Again.
Oh, you've got, um You
- It's your, um, collar.
- What?
- There you go.
- Thank you.
What's this? What's going on here?
- Nothing.
- He's nice. You like him?
What? No.
There's definitely something.
I am engaged.
Engaged, not married.
Looking's not buying.
I am having unnatural thoughts.
- Want me to find out his situation?
- Absolutely not.
I've got a way. I get them
to draw their families.
If they don't draw a mum, then
I know it's all to play for. Hmm.
Squeeze in a cheeky wax
before parents' evening.
I am really, genuinely, honestly
not interested in him. Okay?
One adverb too many. Now I'm sure.
- Bye! Ooh.
- Please keep listening.
All right, love you.
This could be the first
time she ever sees us.
- Oh.
- If she looks over at the right time.
Is that why you're wearing a new dress?
- This? No, this is old.
- Mm.
- It's still got the price tag on it.
- Oh, shit.
- Jase.
- Careful.
Oh, my God. There's a drawer
here for pine cones.
When did we all stop
finding pine cones amazing?
Well, I'd say for me it was when the
bra made its first
appearance, but Oh.
Hello. Disha.
- Ah, Disha. H How are ya?
- Hi, Disha.
- Nice to see you again.
- Nice to see you.
This is Josie, Princess's form teacher.
- Hello.
- Hello, Josie.
Hello. I see you found her seat.
Yeah, are these all her drawings?
She loves it.
And we find it helps her
regulate her emotions, so
Right, so should we, uh, pop
out? Observe her in the wild?
- Oh, yeah. We'd love to.
- Okay, okay.
Now, I know Penny will have said,
but it is worth mentioning again.
It's important not to approach her.
We don't want a meet at this stage.
It just needs to be gradual or
it can jeopardize the adoption.
- Mmm.
- Understood.
Pretend you're visiting the school
on professional business.
Okay. Like what?
Well, anything you like.
- Um.
- What
- Oh, um, how about surveyors? Yeah.
- Sure.
- What we surveying?
- Mm, let me think.
Um Oh, just the playground.
Just gonna check to see
if it's, like, level.
- That sounds good to me. Shall we?
- Yeah.
If we're being other people,
should we do accents?
- Which ones can you do?
- I can do American.
- Show me.
- Well, howdy, partner
I'm gonna stop you right there.
It's absolutely perfect.
Just a couple of Texan
surveyors over to see
whether the playground is level.
Happens every day.
- This is a good surface. Yeah.
- Yeah, garden area thing.
And that that looks
- Very sturdy.
- Yeah.
- Now, that's her there.
- Where is she now?
See her? She's got the yellow ball.
- Oh, oh, oh, yeah.
- Yeah.
Oh, yeah.
Over here, over here.
She's got a lot of energy. Hasn't she?
- Give it back!
- No! No!
- Mason. Nicely, please.
- My ball.
- Mason.
- Give it back.
- Tyler. No pushing. No pushing.
- It's our ball.
Wow. He's handy for a little one.
Tyler, that's her brother, isn't it?
- Yeah.
- Oh!
- They're very protective of each other.
- Right.
Do they know they're
being separated, Disha?
- Yeah, they do.
- Yeah.
Finding someone to take
both became impossible.
I wish we could, but we've
only been approved for one.
For one, yeah.
Well, we'll obviously try and keep
them present in each other's lives.
Give me the ball.
Over here, over here.
- That went well, I think.
- Yeah.
Did it worry you a little bit
when they said about her needing
to regulate her emotions?
- With the drawing and
- No.
- No?
- No. We knew she was gonna need our help.
To be honest, it'd be nice
to try and fix someone
I'm not sleeping with for a change.
- I'm not sure that fixing is the right
- Oh.
- What?
- We need to return these.
Oh, yeah. I'll wait here.
Okay. Thank you.
Settle down now.
I said set Jessica, settle down.
Thank you.
Why, you're very welcome.
The people who steal
balls in playgrounds,
this is their time. They've peaked.
But your time is coming.
And it will be longer.
And it will be better.
Now, y'all have a good
day now, little missy.
Oh. Thank you.
Does that mean you've gotta do an accent
for the next 40 years now? Yeah?
No, no, no. 'Cause I'm just
gonna phase it out gradually.
It's just that they did say very
specifically not to talk to her.
I know. I know, but you
didn't see her little face.
Oh, my God.
Are you gonna be one of
those helicopter parents?
Yeah, the one who keeps
talking about choices
and is really overprotective?
Well, yeah. I was planning on
protecting our daughter, Jase. Yeah.
No, you need to You need to
trust people more, all right?
- See you later.
- Bye.
Keep to the left.
Uh, what are you doing? We're
supposed to be doing ocean life.
We're drawing our families, aren't we?
So remember, draw anyone who
lives in your house. Anyone at all.
Look at that.
You've really thought about
colors there, Raina. Well done.
Game on.
Oh, that's a big house.
Remind me, what was
your dad's name again?
Ron? Well, I'll be seeing
him at parents' evening.
- Jase?
- No. I've gone. I'm away.
You need to come back. The
Belarusians are kicking off again.
- What?
- They won't sit next to the Russians,
and the Russians won't move
'cause they're avoiding Mykola.
- Why?
- He's Ukrainian.
He brought the flag again.
No, sorry. I've gone.
- Look
- Stick someone Swiss between them.
We don't have any Swiss people!
They can afford better schools!
Good luck.
- Oh, my God.
- It's fine, it's fine.
- Everything is fine, okay?
- What's happened?
- Nothing, okay?
- Jason, what happened?
Look, I fell over the,
what, bike rack thing, okay?
It is not serious. It's more
embarrassing than anything else.
See? I told you you'd have an accident.
It wasn't It wasn't an
accident. I've tripped over.
Um, you tripped over a bike
rack. It is a bike accident.
If you sit on your car keys,
it's not a car accident, is it?
It's It is okay.
- All right, okay. Let me.
- Help me pull that off?
- It's all right.
- Okay, sit down. I'll clean you up.
All right. Honestly, I'm f fine.
Oh, bloody hell.
See? That's why you shouldn't be
riding your bike. You're clumsy.
It's a scratch. It's fine.
- Yeah.
- Okay.
It's all right.
- Is that okay?
- Yeah.
Look, you You don't need
to look like that. Okay?
It's not a big deal.
Jase, it's a quarter of your face.
That's half a normal person's face.
Oh, what's what's-her-name have to say?
- Maria!
- Maria, what's she saying?
She sent me a photo.
I was only just saying I wish
she'd send me a photo, wasn't I?
Well, there you go. Uh
- Okay, let me see.
- What?
- Let me see.
- Nah. It's What
- Jason!
- No. 'Cause what's happened
- I've fallen on the corner of it, okay?
- Oh, my God.
- It's okay. All right.
- Go and get changed. I'll get some ice.
And by the way, why is Elliot
texting me about Erica?
- Oh, yeah. I set them up.
- What? Why?
He's an idiot. He calls women "milady".
He tries to find excuses to wear vest
tops so he can show off his arms.
Yeah, no. I want an idiot.
She's not ready for anything serious.
She needs a couple of idiots
to reject just, you know,
to boost her confidence up a bit.
Go and get changed.
Jason, go and get changed.
Watch it, mate.
Just popping out!
Where you going?
To get some milk.
Do you want a bike?
Yeah, I'd proper love a bike.
- I'm back!
- Hi.
Where's the milk?
They didn't have any milk.
The supermarket didn't have any milk?
- No, they sold out.
- Oh.
It's very popular, Jase.
Oh, God, the chicken.
All right then.
Can't find my keys. Oh, got them. Yeah.
- Huh, that's weird.
- What?
- Got an email from Disha.
- Oh, what's she say?
She says, um, "Good to
see you". Blah, blah, blah.
"On your last visit to the school,
did you happen to see
a strange American woman
bothering the children?"
- What? No.
- Oh, my goodness.
Yeah, look, she says, "Lovely to
see you and I'll be in touch soon".
Don't do that!
You see? That's what you get
for interfering, isn't it?
Stop it.

We'll deal with it later
because we're gonna be late.

in lowercase, so I assume so.
- Oh, look, Jase, Froyo.
- So? You hate Froyo.
No, loo uh, vanilla, Jase.
Look, they've got vanilla.
- Oh, my God. That's my bike.
- What?
- That is my bike!
- Uh, no, I seriously doubt that.
- It is! It's still got the lock on it.
- No, Jason, wait.
Excuse me. Can you stop
kicking that? That's my bike.
- Whatever.
- Can I have it back, please?
Some ditzy lady gave me 20 quid
- to take this bike off her hands.
- What you
Oh, shit.
Thank you.
- How much you want for it?
- Well, more than that.
- You'll have to have 40.
- Another ten and we'll call it quits.
Look I don't like you
having it, so I gave it away. That's
That's not an apology. You're
just saying what you did.
Yeah, I know, I know.
I'm not apologizing.
I saw the crash on your
headcam, Jase. You lied to me.
I didn't want you worrying. It
looked much worse than it was.
Yeah? Okay. Well, raise your
hand above your shoulder.
- Don't want to.
- No, go on.
I don't need to, thank you very much.
When I need to raise my hand
above my shoulder,
I'll put it right up there.
You've had it one day, Jase.
One day, and look at you.
- Look, I don't need you interfering.
- Oh, whoa, sorry.
No, I'm not interfering.
It's called love, Jase.
I do stuff like this
all the time for you.
- What do you mean? Like what?
- Oh, I don't know.
I plug your phone in because
you never remember to.
I move your bookmark back a page because
you're always sleepy on the last one,
- and I know you're not taking it in.
- Are you serious?
Yes, I'm being serious.
I rub factor 50 sun cream
on you when you ask for 15.
Because you are pasty,
and I've got your back.
And I do not want you to have this bike!
Stop it. Get off, Nikki. Nikki!
Don't, I'm gonna lose you, Jase!
Why are you so obsessed with losing me?
She's already lost two parents.
And she's about to lose a brother.
That's three people, Jase.
Three people by the
time she's, what, ten?
What happens if she
loses another person?
What happens to her then? How
does she recover from that?
So what you wanna do?
Wrap us all in cotton wool
- and never leave the house?
- Yes.
If that's what it takes, Jase. Yes.
I know you meant that to
sound like a bad thing,
but that actually sounds amazing.
How are How are you
the one storming off?
Nikki. Stop. Hey!
Hey. You shouldn't be
the one storming off.
I'm the one who should be storming off.
- Can I come now?
- No.
- What about now?
- Fine.
- Are you not drinking?
- Tap water. It's free.
Legally they have to provide it.
- Ooh.
- God, it's so hot in here. Oof.
Sorry about the vest top. I
spilled something on my shirt.
Actually, I might stand if that's okay.
Sitting's bad for the organs.
It's the new smoking.
You know, you should
smile more. Suits you.
So, uh, Jason said
No, look, I'm sorry. This is weird.
Can you just sit down?
Oh, yeah. Of course.
Jason says you've got a couple of kids.
- Yeah.
- Wow. That's great.
You'd never have guessed. Well done.
- How'd you keep the weight off?
- My husband left me.
Right. I CrossFit.
Oh, as a verb. Wow.
I can barely do a press-up.
- The secret's keeping the hips lifted.
- Is it?
I mean, you've got nice
hips. They'd lift well.
Could you show me?
- Here?
- Mm.
- Okay. Okay.
- Wow.
- Uh. Whoa!
- Ah, okay.
- Keep your arms in tight to the body.
- Yeah.
And then shoulders and legs
should be one straight line.
- Got you a tea.
- Mm, thanks very much.
- It's okay.
- Lovely.
That's sugary.
Yeah, that's what
four sugars taste like.
Normally I put in two
and tell you it's four.
- This is exactly how I like it.
- Oh, is it?
- Yeah.
- Oh, okay, good.
- This is lovely.
- Oh, nice.
Spot on. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- You can ride your bike if you want to.
- Can I, yeah?
- Yeah.
- That's very kind. Thank you.
Oh, sorry. Sorry, sorry.
- Don't worry about it.
- Okay.
Honduras is the deadliest
place to defend the planet
because people who have fought
to protect their land
- Oh, my God. Jase, look.
- Yeah.
- No, turn it back.
- What? Why?
- Turn it Oi. Turn it back.
- I don't want to watch that bor
Oh, my God. Jason!
- Yeah? Yeah?
- That's Maria!
But who's the Which No.
- It is! Oh, my God. Jason.
- No. No. Yeah?
That is Maria! Look! Look, it's her.
- It's Maria.
- Oh, yeah!
She's talking on the news.
Maria is talking on the news, Jason.
Bloody hell.
I sponsored her out of poverty.
- And now she's talking on the bloody news.
- Yeah.
God, I didn't even know
she was an activist.
I thought she just worked at
that beach café with Eduardo.
Oh, jeez.
God, that is so strange, though.
I don't know why she didn't
mention that in her letters.
- Uh, Nikki?
- Yeah?
What? What's going on?
Nikki, she didn't mention it
in the letters because, um
- Yeah?
- Because she didn't write them. I did.
- Sorry. What you talking about?
- I wrote those letters.
Sorry, what?
Right. Okay, so do you remember,
um, a few years ago
when you were feeling down, right?
You decided to sponsor a child
to make you feel better.
She didn't reply, and
it made you feel worse?
- Yeah.
- Well,
I wrote a letter pretending to
be her, and then you loved it.
And then you started expecting
one every few months,
so I just I just sort of continued.
Oh, my God. Are you kidding me?
Then you wanted a photograph, so
I went on the Internet to get one,
and I've ended up getting someone
off the news by mistake, obviously.
Sorry, Jason, you
You've been pretending to be a child
that I sponsor for two years?
- Accidentally, yes.
- That
- That is beyond creepy.
- Oh, I thought you'd think it was sweet.
Jason, I don't believe this!
You're the one who just said we need
to look out for each other more.
And you just told me to not interfere.
Where you go What you doing?
- Oi. Come on.
- No! No.
- Hypocrite!
- Nikki.
Took me bloody ages.
"And that is the very end of
the adventure of the wardrobe.
But if the professor was right,
it was only the beginning
of the adventures of Narnia.
The end".
- Night night, sweetheart.
- Good night.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Everything okay?
- Yeah, good as gold.
You're back early. Nice night?
Yeah. It was good.
It was really, really good, actually.
- Good.
- Mm.
Right, well, um um
- Thanks.
- Uh, sure.
Oh, um, just FYI, when
the brownies were cooking,
Lauren said they were "still loading".
So I think we should probably
reevaluate her screen time.
Okay, well, I'll
- Bye.
- See ya.
Hi. You busy?
Great. Do you wanna come over?
That was during the IVF.
When you were
so sad and I didn't know what to do,
and I've ended up doing something mad.
I nearly killed her off
in that earthquake in 2019.
You remember that? I
I didn't have the heart.
You learnt Spanish for me?
Mmm. Well, un poco, sí.
Spent an absolute fortune
on Honduran stamps and all.
I mean
They are not easy to get.
Let me tell you that.
- So we're both helicopters then?
- Seems like it, doesn't it?
We need to work on that.
I don't know about that.
'Cause she's a
nine-year-old girl, Nikki,
who's grown up without her mum and dad.
She's facing the prospects
of living without her brother.
I think she's had enough
independence, actually,
and I think that she could do
with a bit of smothering love.
Well, we can definitely do that.
Oh, God, yeah.
I just thought I was
getting letters off someone
whose life I changed.
Well you were.
You were.
