Trying (2020) s04e07 Episode Script

White Lies

Nikki! Do you want a lift or what?
Okay. [SIGHS] The essentials. Let's see.
We've got toothbrush,
sun cream, knickers,
uh, shampoo and, ooh, these.
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
No, thank you. [CHUCKLES]
I am heavily married.
[CHUCKLES] Oh, my God.
Thank you so much, guys.
- It's all right.
- Let's do it! [CHUCKLES]
Oh, no. God, this shirt is so gross.
Here, take Cheryl's.
She couldn't fly. She's on a list.
She's, uh, got some views on her.
- "Long-legged Chezza."
- Yeah, she's 6'3".
But you can have her
room. It's all paid for.
You'll have to share with Shell though.
[SIGHS] Shell, you okay?
Right. I'm gonna need
you to buck up, okay?
'Cause it's our hen do too.
[CLICKS TONGUE] Listen, do you
wanna come out with us tonight?
Oh, no.
- No, I'm too old to go clubbing.
- No, you're not.
I look like I'm there to
drive someone home.
Just There's, uh There's
something I have to do.
[BRIDESMAID] Oh, okay.
Come on. Up.
Have you heard from her?
No, but when I know, you'll know, okay?
Now, up. You need to revise.
We've got physics on Monday.
There's no point. I don't know anything.
You know more than you think.
Let's have a look what you've
got so far. Come on.
Fine. [SIGHS]
I worked out, if I'm in a car
traveling 30 miles per hour
- Here we go.
- and I collide with a car
- traveling 20 miles per hour
- Yeah.
they would let me off all my exams.
And I think we should
at least consider it.
Should we call that plan B?
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
Come on now, you. Up.
Oh, h-hello. Hello.
- Um, hola. [CHUCKLES]
- Hola. [CHUCKLES]
Is this here?
- [STUTTERS] This is this?
- Café, for eating.
Yes, I-I know. Is
Is it this a-address?
For eating. [CHUCKLES]
- Oh. [CHUCKLES] Okay.
Gracias. [CHUCKLES]
Hey, what's this?
It's a letter. [GASPS] Oh, my God.
Maybe I do know more than I think.
You haven't handed any of
your coursework in, Princess.
Nah, just building anticipation.
Creating some buzz, you know?
Look, there's English, history and art,
all of which are due on Monday.
Well, I've been distracted.
Why have you let it build up like this?
Why haven't you got on top of it?
Honestly? Like, totally honestly?
I don't think you've been strict
enough with me generally.
Yeah. Well, okay.
Cancel your weekend plans. All right?
- Are you all right? You look stressed.
- Do you want the English menu?
- No.
- No, I'm okay.
Would you recommend the squid?
[STAMMERS] Do you like squid?
- Yes.
- Then no.
Is this one of those places,
if you order sangria,
you just you bring the free food?
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
[CHUCKLES] What's your
name? I'll start a tab.
Cheryl. It's Chezza. [CHUCKLES]
- Oh, yeah.
- [CHUCKLES] Yeah.
What's your name?
I'm Kat.
[JASON] Okay. We have called this
emergency coursework committee
because Princess has to have
three pieces of coursework
handed in by Monday
that she has not yet started.
Now, all we need is a passing grade
because Princess can boost her
overall mark on the exams,
which she will because she's
gonna be revising all weekend.
Now, Tyler is our point man for that.
He's got his cue cards at the ready.
Go on, my son.
Okay. Dad, I know you like
a little bit of history.
So, from you, I would like 5,000 words
on the USA's entry into
World War II, please.
Yeah, I'm your fella.
I've written widely on the
Germans over the years.
- Essays though?
- Essays, letters, pamphlets.
Right. Okay. Yeah, I'm gonna
need to do my own pass on that
when you're finished.
John, art.
I know you're a watercolor man,
but what are we saying to
a little bit of acrylics?
[CHUCKLES] I have been a bit
more bold and adventurous
- in the service of my art.
- Look out.
Last month, I asked some
teenagers to move
because they were obscuring
my view of Apsley House.
[CHUCKLES] He was extraordinary.
[JASON] Well, let's ride
that wave, shall we?
Now, the theme here is
Encountering Nature:
Flora, Fauna and the Natural World.
So, fill your boots, John.
I'll go and get my easel
from the caravan.
Nice one. Okay.
Jill, love, bit of English.
So we'd like an essay on
one of these books, please.
Have you read any of these here?
[GASPS] Oh! Uh, that was
on the telly at Christmas.
Okay, we have a winner.
Attitudes to Gender Roles in
A Room with a View, it is.
Can't wait. I'm on the edge of my seat.
Uh, you you do remember watching
it though, don't you, Jill?
'Cause usually by three
o'clock on Christmas Day,
you're a little bit
- What?
- Tired.
Oh, no, I remember it.
I liked the music.
[JASON] That's the spirit.
Okay. Yeah, you can't
call 'em that anymore.
[SOFTLY] All right.
The kitchen says you've had
enough ham croquetas for now,
so this is your last lot.
And then we're cutting
you off. I'm sorry.
That's fair. [CHUCKLES]
Are you on a hen do?
- Yeah.
- Where's the others?
We fell out.
Yeah. I-I wanted to go snorkeling
and and they didn't,
and then we had this big fight
about how we only ever hang out on land.
Where are you from?
East London.
Me too.
- Yeah, no, I-I love it round there.
- Hmm.
Do you know a pub called
[SMACKS LIPS] The Tap and Bells?
[GASPS] Shut up.
That was my mum's favorite pub.
- What?
- Yeah.
No. Oh. [CHUCKLES] Small world.
- Yeah.
I could show you a a really good
beach for snorkeling, if you want.
There's no swell.
Well, there's basking sharks,
but you just bop 'em on the
nose and then they swim off.
Yeah. Great.
- Hi.
- [GASPS] I met her.
What? What did she say?
Did she ask about the kids?
No. No, not exactly, because
I I didn't tell her who I was.
Well, I told her who I was, but who
I told her I was isn't who I am.
Well, who did you say you were?
You're just supposed to be
there getting answers.
Yeah, I know, but [SIGHS]
I need to see who she really is
before I tell her who I really am.
We're going snorkeling.
- You are a terrible liar.
No, I'm not.
Oh, really? How are the
sandwiches in Kerplunken?
Oh, come on.
You make a mistake, then you
tell a lie to get out of it.
Then you end up in a web
that you can't remember.
- Don't worry. I have got this.
- Chezza! Chezza!
That's you.
- Chezza!
- Oh, yeah. [GASPS]
Hi. Hello.
You forgot your sunglasses.
Ah, thank you so much.
Sorry I didn't hear you. I'm a
I'm a bit deaf in my right ear.
- No, don't say that, 'cause now
- [CHUCKLES] Okay, see you later.
- Don't worry. I covered it.
- You're one meeting in,
you're already a deaf
snorkeler named Chezza.
It's fine. I am concentrating now.
Oh, really? What ear are
you holding the phone to?
- Oh, yeah.
- Right.
Okay. Concentrating starting now.
Shit. Gotta go.
- Was that Nikki?
- Uh, no.
- It was Chezza.
- Who's Chezza?
She's this, uh, deaf
snorkeler that I know.
[PRINCESS] Tyler, you ready?
- All right?
- Yeah. I'm up to Midway.
Of the essay?
The battle.
- The Battle of Midway.
- Oh.
It's all very straightforward.
I'll be done in an hour.
Okay. Well, smashing.
I've started seeing someone.
We met in the RSPCA charity shop.
She asked me to fix her vacuum cleaner.
Oh. Wow. That's nice.
I couldn't get to the
bottom of this Hoover.
Every week, it stopped working
and I'd go round there again.
I was barely away from that house.
Once, the whole rotating
brush snapped off
like someone had stood on it.
Ah, right.
We ended up traipsing
to Croydon for parts.
[JASON] Did she offer to come along?
Yeah, she brought sandwiches. [CHUCKLES]
All right then. I'll leave you to it.
All right there, John?
What are we saying?
Well, when I heard the phrase
"encountering nature,"
I immediately thought
of the oxeye daisy.
- I think we all did.
- If you like.
I've set my sights on a triptych. There.
[JASON] Okay. Will this take long?
- Oh, no. Work of a moment.
- Come on.
All right, Jill, love?
How are you getting on?
Yeah. It's going really well.
My only concern is that it may
have a little too much insight
and wisdom to have been
written by a 16-year-old.
Tell you what we'll do then:
When it's finished,
we'll do a wisdom pass.
Take the edge off the insight.
How about that?
- Okay.
- [JASON] Lovely.
Everyone okay in here?
We're making revision cards,
color coding by topic.
Well, if you need anything
Dad, we're busy.
Hello. [CHUCKLES] You all right?
- Jump on.
have you got a helmet?
Nah. [STAMMERS] It got
busted up in the accident.
- You all right?
It's just tricky to hold on 'cause
of the [STAMMERS] It's fine.
Oh, it it's so pea [COUGHING]
peaceful down there.
It's like another world. [COUGHS]
I just I love it so much.
I can't get enough of it. [PANTING]
That's enough though.
How How long have you been here?
Three months.
Where were you before that?
Few places.
Tunisia, Greece.
Morocco, I think.
What's your, like, life plan?
Feel like I'm being interviewed
for a job I don't want.
Sorry, it's the snorkeling.
It just It
It unleashes my curiosity.
Just lie back and breathe.
Stop questioning everything.
[NIKKI] Oh, yeah. Yeah, that is nice.
- I'm bored. Let's get a drink.
- Hmm?
What's happened here?
What's happened to your daisies?
There's no daisies here,
Jason. Only despair.
- But they were nice.
- [JOHN] They were sudden, Jason.
- Too sudden.
- What?
They insisted upon themselves.
I've outgrown 'em.
But that was 45 minutes ago.
Are you drinking, John?
Hemingway's lemonade.
Okay, look, we
we just need you to paint
something, anything.
- Paint anything.
- I can't.
I've run out of the one thing
that every painter needs.
What, confidence?
I kicked a tub over.
W-Watch your step actually.
Oh, John.
[PRINCESS] No, this is good,
Tyler. Just hang them up.
[JASON] What is going on here?
Right. So we did them with
key facts on the front
and a summary on the back,
but then we thought it'd be better
separated onto different cards.
- So we're doing them again.
- Have you done any revision?
No, we haven't finished
the revision cards yet.
[PRINCESS] Once we get it
done, it'll be really quick.
We just look down at the key facts
and find the card relating to the f
Actually, maybe it is better to
have it all on the same card.
Oh, my God.
[KAT] So this is it. My place.
[NIKKI] Oh, wow. Oh, look at that view.
Kat, you know that tip
I gave you at the restaurant?
- I think I want that back.
[CHUCKLES] This is amazing.
It's just rented.
Yeah. Well, so is mine, but
it's not like this. [CHUCKLES]
- Yeah?
uh Do you want a drink?
- Yes, I do. [CHUCKLES]
- Let's do it.
Oh. [CHUCKLES] Thank you.
I like your, um, "vase-y" thing.
Then take it.
- No. No, it's okay. [CHUCKLES, SIGHS]
- Where's my phone?
Oh, you put it in my bag at the beach.
- Oh.
- Yeah. [CHUCKLES]
This is the kind of place that
a drug lord gets murdered.
And I I mean that in the best way.
Why is there a photo of me in your bag?
How are you getting on?
- 1,400 and counting.
- Words?
- Souls lost.
- Oh.
The raid of Dieppe.
Turning point. Morale shot.
I'm typing for a sea of ghosts.
- Why don't you have a little rest?
- No, I have to press on.
Make up ground.
We needed help earlier.
Where were the supplies?
We never stood a chance.
Hi. Thanks for coming. Sorry,
I should have asked earlier.
Right. Well, I've got the supplies.
Where are they then?
Right. Well, I've read this twice,
Vic, and it lacks coherence.
I disagree.
Well, there's a paragraph here on
England's 1966 World Cup win,
some unsolicited views
on women's football,
a limerick for some reason,
and seven cultural slurs,
which is seven more times than
you've used the source material.
Right. I am gonna sit with you,
and we can go through it.
Now, what is going on with you?
Inspiration's left me.
I'm seeing nothing.
Well, see this:
Your granddaughter, GCSE-less,
in Trafalgar Square selling
fridge magnets from a cup.
Now, the line between here
and there is a fine one
and it is painted on this
paper with this paintbrush.
Paint something. Quickly!
- Okay. Hmm? What the hell is this?
- What do you mean?
Well, you were supposed to be writing
- about A Room with a View.
- I have.
So what's all this about a
stolen Soviet microchip?
And no one ever chased
anyone up the Eiffel Tower
in A Room with a View.
They did. That was my favorite bit.
A Room with a View is set in Florence.
You d
Hang on.
Oh, my God. She's done A View to a Kill.
- [JILLY] Have I?
- Oh, for the love of God.
No, I'm sure that's right.
A Room with a View starring Roger Moore.
- That is A View to a Kill.
- Yeah.
Okay. Right. I am gonna
download it for you.
And you can sit there, and you
should not type anything at all
until you've watched it, okay?
- [JILLY] Okay.
- Okay.
- Do you have wine?
- Yeah.
Are you gonna say anything?
What do you want me to say?
[NIKKI] I don't know.
Your daughter, um, wants answers.
There are things she needs
things that they both
need from you that I
I can't give them.
I don't know what they want me to say.
They need you to say sorry.
Well, I'm not.
You shouldn't have lied to me.
I know.
I know. I'm sorry.
Actually, no. You know what?
I'm No. I'm not sorry.
In fact, you're welcome.
You're welcome for looking
after your children
while you were off finding yourself.
You're not a maverick.
You're not the first person
who's ever thought about
leaving their kids.
But you can't just swan off
whenever life gets a bit hard.
And they are fine, by the way.
Thanks for asking.
I know they are.
That's why I left,
so that they would be fine.
And so would I
because there was a time
when none of us were.
[STAMMERS] You don't know
what our lives were like.
I wasn't
I wasn't able
I knew there was a reason that I
came over to you in the restaurant.
Well, yeah, you're a waitress.
Yeah, I'm not a very good one though.
There's a lot
There's a lot of questions.
It's okay. You don't have to.
What are you doing tomorrow?
Oh, no.
What's going on?
The owner's away.
I think some people broke in.
Did you see anything?
- Huh?
- Sorry.
[STAMMERS] I'm a bit deaf
in this ear. [CHUCKLES]
- Oh. Oh, um
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
No more croquetas, hey?
- No more. Sorry.
- Oh
We run out. Never before.
No. [STAMMERS] Have you seen Kat?
She works here. Um, she's got
like a like an effortless vibe
and a, um a sort of mix of hard
and soft with a restless spirit.
- Brown hair.
- Kat?
- Sí.
- Gone.
Where [STAMMERS] Gone Gone where?
Gone. Gone for good. Her room empty.
Sorry, I have to work.
No croquetas, no people.
- Sorry.
It's a bit long, but I've taken
out the word "bloody"
before every mention of the French,
and it's taken it right down.
So I think it's a pass.
[KAREN] Right. Come on, Dad.
Well, the brief was Encountering Nature,
and I was inspired by the way
Karen spoke to me last night.
I'd buy that.
- Would you buy that?
- Yeah.
[JILLY] I don't think
it's meant to be you.
What do you mean?
It's obviously my face on the lion.
Hey. What's going on?
- She left.
- What?
- What do you mean she left?
- She left.
I told her who I was.
I told her that Princess was
looking for her, and she left.
Where's she gone?
Maybe she just needed a bit of time.
No, all her things are gone.
She is running away again.
I can't tell Princess that, Jason.
I can't tell her the truth.
- Yeah.
- No.
No, you can't. Hang on.
Princess, come here a sec, darling.
Just got Mum on the phone. Okay?
Can we sit down?
All right, Nik. You're on speaker.
Princess is here.
I looked everywhere, but I
just I just can't find her.
She's not at that address anymore,
and no one knows her here.
I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
I love you.
Love you too.
Come here.
[KAREN] Come on.
Are you all hugging without me again?
- Oh.
Come on.
