Housewarming

This programme contains some strong language What do you think? Aye.
You don't know what I've done, do you? Nah.
Well, I've moved that lamp and I've shifted the rug, so it's in line with the sofa.
Oh, aye, now you say, aye.
Everything all right upstairs? Aye, I've hoovered the hall, I've pulled the blinds down in the bedroom and I've put the ironing board back in the cupboard.
Great.
Oh, and I've lit a wee candle in the bathroom.
Aww, you didn't need to do that.
No.
I did.
Hi, Michelle.
How you doing? Not too early, are we? Oh, no, no, no, don't be daft.
Hi, Alan.
They're early.
Come in, come in.
Aww, thanks, Michelle.
Ohh! Oh, this is lovely, Michelle.
Isn't this nice, Eric? Oh, looks good.
Oh, look at the fireplace there with the lights.
Oh, and I like that rug too.
I love it, it goes just nicely with the suite.
Took me ages to find one the right colour.
Oh, no, it's perfect.
Oh, thanks, Beth.
Oh, lovely big telly.
Yeah, Alan picked that.
Take Beth's jacket, would you, please, Alan? Right, aye.
You needing fags or anything out the pocket? Er, no.
Oh, before I forget, this is for you.
Oh, you didn't need to bother.
Oh, it's just a wee something.
Oh, thanks so much.
Och.
Look, Alan, Beth got us a little house-warming pressie.
It's not a candle, is it? It's like the fucking chapel in here as it is.
Ha! Oh, look.
Oh, if you want to exchange it for something else, I might still have the receipt.
Don't be daft.
Where is it out of? Er, Asda.
Take it back and swap it for food.
Just put it on the table, please, Alan.
Now, what would you like to drink? I'm going to do some cocktails later on, but I thought we could start with a wee glass of wine or something? Oh, yes, a white wine would be lovely, Michelle.
Eric? Er, I'll take a glass of wine, aye.
Do you no' want a lager, Eric? I've got the wee Belgian ones, 7%? Oh, aye, a beer, sure thing.
Take a seat anywhere you like.
DOORBELL RINGS Oh, excuse me.
Oh, Christine.
Take that and guide me in.
Oh.
I think it's quite nice, aye.
Oh, hi, Christine.
Oh, my goodness.
Oh, for God's sake.
I'm all right, Michelle.
Bless you, bless you.
What happened? I've scratched my eye, Beth.
You what? I've scratched my eyeball.
I caught it in the edge of my newspaper.
Oh.
Oh, dear, bad news right enough, eh? HE CHUCKLES Are you all right? Oh, I've been very, very lucky, Beth.
The wee doctor said that if it'd been my Take A Break, it could've been much worse.
Oh, you poor thing.
I've been told to rest but I didnae want to disappoint you.
I brung you a wee cactus.
Aww, thanks.
Aye, 50p.
All right, Christine? Oh, oh, wait a minute, wait, till wait till I get turned round, who's this? Oh, it's you, Alan.
Hello, Alan.
What's happened to you? She's hurt her eye.
Aye, the white bit, Alan, quite a deep scratch.
Now the doctor's given me drops and painkillers and I've had my blinds shut all afternoon.
Can you still see out of it? Well, no' when I'm wearing this fucking patch, no.
Christine, can I get you a wee drink of something? Mm, I don't know, I'm on quite a heavy antibiotic.
A lemonade? Aye, brandy and lemonade, that'll be lovely, Michelle.
Alan, see when people arrive, could you offer them a drink? Right.
Instead of me having to ask them and then ask you? DOORBELL RINGS Right.
Will I? No, you get the drinks! I'll go to the door.
Right.
Where did you get this rug, Michelle? I got it online.
It's nice, isn't it? I think we should do something with our lounge, Eric.
Hey? Like what? Well, a new rug would be nice.
Nothing wrong with the one we've got.
Really? Aye, hides that big stain in the carpet perfectly.
SHE SIGHS Hey.
BETH: Oh, hi, Cathy.
You all right, Cath? Colin? Hello, hello, hello, we're here! Who's this? It's Colin and Cathy.
Oh, dear, what's happened here? I scratched my eyeball, Colin.
How the hell did you manage that? I caught it on the edge of my newspaper, the doctor's given me drops and painkillers.
And was it him that gave you the patch? No, I thought it was fancy dress and I came as a fucking pirate.
Is this it, Michelle? Well, tonight's really just a night for the neighbours, you know? Oh, aye, very nice.
In fact, we brought yous a wee pressie so here you go.
Aww! Oh, it's not another fu Alan! Eh, some difference in here, hey, Colin? Oh, aye, it's It's looking good.
Do you remember what it used to be like? Oh, aye.
May I offer yous a drink? Yes.
What do you want? Well, what have you got? Well, I was actually going to do some cocktails.
Oh, brilliant, Michelle, well, let's have a cocktail.
I can do you a mojito or a strawberry daiquiri.
Oh.
Or the wee beers with 7%? Strawberry daiquiri, Michelle.
Aye, I'll have a daiquiri too.
Alan! It's an M&S candle, Michelle.
I don't know how to do them.
Alan, honestly? So, all right, Beth? Yes, fine, thanks, Cathy.
Oh, it's nice in here, isn't it? Oh, lovely.
She's done a great job.
Yeah, if you like things quite quite plain.
Cathy.
What? She has put a lot of work into this place and it's very nice of her to have us over, so just don't All right, all right.
Is that all the hard work over, then, is it, Alan? Michelle wants a bigger extractor fan in the loo but apart from that it's just Oh, you've done some job with it.
I remember when old Archie had it.
Aye? Oh, aye.
Newspapers piled up over there, cats' litter tray there and some sort of frame with a harness in it there, don't know what it was.
Wee Asian doctor, Eric, that's what you want for anything to do with your eyes.
Really? Asian for your eyes, Chinese for your back and maybe take a plain British one for stitches.
There you go.
Oh, thank you.
And thank you, Michelle, for having us in your beautiful home.
Some difference, Michelle.
I'm just saying to Alan how different it is since Archie had it.
Yeah? Oh, aye, and it smells much better too.
You'll have put some value onto the place with all the work you've done.
Aye, they certainly will, Eric.
As a matter of fact, I've been meaning to get mine valued since I had that handrail put round my front step.
Well, are you wanting a look around? Well, I wouldn't mind.
Cathy? Oh, go on, Michelle.
Let's see how many different shades of beige you've managed to find.
So this is my kitchen.
Oh, yes, this is nice.
Isn't this lovely, Cathy? Oh, yeah.
Yeah.
I mean, it's great how everything's so close together.
You can just get the food straight from the fridge to the cooker to the bin.
Oh, it just makes me want to cook something.
Does it, Beth? What do you want to cook, Beth? Potatoes? I'm just saying it's a lovely kitchen and it looks ideal for cooking in.
See since we got it done, I've been cooking every night.
You have, haven't you? Shall we see upstairs? Yeah, come on! Let's go and look at Michelle's toilet! See if you think it's ideal for shitting in.
Nice big telly you've got.
I was saying that.
It's a beauty, innit? Is that the 55 incher, Alan? Aye, you want it on? Well? Wouldnae mind a wee look.
Aye, stick it on, Alan.
Oooh! Oh, look at that.
Look at the colours on it, Eric.
Is that high definition, Alan? High definition, surround sound, internet, voice control.
What's voice control? Well, you just say what you want to watch and it puts it on.
Eh? You say the name of the programme that you want to watch and it automatically switches to it.
Oh, that's clever, that.
We've been looking into getting a new telly but I never knew they did them with voice Bargain Hunt! Bargain Hunt! Oh, this is nice.
Oh, this is where the magic happens, Michelle? Don't know about that.

Oh, yes, very comfortable.
What side of the bed are you on? That side.
Beth, check the drawers, see if she's got a dildo.

His positional play is very sloppy.
Oh, aye.
SNOOKER BALLS CLACK And again.
Alan! All right? What you doing with the telly on? Here, Beth, shout Emmerdale and see what happens.

Alan, just switch the television off.
Rogue Traders! Oh, what we going to do now? Oh, Alan, they don't have drinks.
Do yous want another one, aye? Aye, go on.
What about everybody else, Christine? Would you like a wee cocktail? I'll take another one, honey.
I couldn't really taste the spirits in that one, though.
Oh, I don't know if I should, Michelle, what with this heavy antibiotic.
Would you prefer a soft drink? Mm, what are you drinking, Beth? What was there again? Mojito or strawberry daiquiri.
I'll take a daiquiri, Michelle.
No, I'm going to try a mojito.
Ah, fuck it, give me a wee bit of both, Michelle.
Beth? Er, I'll take a mojito, Michelle.
Oooh! Did you get a look upstairs, did you? We did.
Oh, it's absolutely beautiful.
Well, I wouldn't say it was It's beautiful.
Alan, any chance you could do a wee bit of work in my place? Aye, what you wanting done? Well, I'm thinking of turning my dining room into a bedroom.
Where will you sit and eat your dinner? In my bed, son, that's the whole point.
Right, here we are.
Oooh! Oh, here we go.
Beth, that's yours.
Cathy.
Thank you.
And Christine, there you go.
Thanks, Michelle.
Oh, that's better, I can nearly taste it now, Michelle.
So, listen, thank you, everyone, for coming tonight and for all your lovely gifts.
You've really made us feel so welcome here.
Oh, no problem at all, honey.
We love the house, but what's really the most important thing .
.
is that we've got such nice neighbours.
Aww! Well, you've done a grand job.
We're pleased you're settling in.
Yes, and it's great to have such a lovely, young couple in the neighbourhood, it really is.

Everyone, this is my friend Louise.
Beth, Beth, she's Yes.
All right? Michelle, is she deaf? Yeah, sorry, Louise is deaf.

And this is Cathy.
Hi, Louise.
SHE MOUTHS Oh, my God, Col, she's so young, it's so sad.

Well, what did you say to her? I just says, "You all right?" Oh, and what did she say? She says she's good, aye.
Oh, that's amazing, isn't it? I bet she's got a very good sense of smell.
See, that's what happens when you're deprived of one sense, the others kick in to compensate.
Here, my ears could pick up the slack.
How long have they been pals, Alan? Oh, a long time.
Louise, Eric's saying how long have you? Oh, I'm shite at it.
Get a pad.
How long have you and Michelle been pals for? 23, is it? 23 year, Eric.

It is a shite-hole, Louise.
So you learned to sign, did you, Michelle? Yeah, well, she helped me a wee bit.
Oh, that's nice, isn't it? CATH CLAPS HANDS URGENTLY Hey! SHE MOUTHS Louise? CHRISTINE CLICKS HER FINGERS Louise.

Is everybody else all right for drinks? Aye, go on, another one of these wee beers.
Aye, I'll take another one, Michelle.
I'll have a Stella.
Alan, why don't you head out to the garden? Take Eric and Colin with you, show them your decking and then YOU can get them a drink when you're out there.
Do yous want to see it? Yeah, why not? Right, come on.
Well, scuse us ladies.

Oh, Colin, look at this.
You do all this yourself, did you, Alan? I did, aye.
Remember what this was like before when Archie had it, Eric? Aye, kind of.
It was just this kind of area here where he used to tip his wee basins onto.
Michelle's wanting decking so she can have her coffee outside.
I tell you what you should get, one of these wee chiminea things.
Oh, yeah.
What's that? Oh, it's like a wee kind of wood burner type of thing.
Aye, they're great.
Aye, you and Michelle get parked in front of that, a wee rug over your laps, a glass of wine and sat out the back here into the wee small hours.
And do what? Well, chat.
Nah.
I don't fancy that.
SHE SIGHS DEEPLY Well, this is a great night, this, isn't it? Sorry? It's supposed to be a party for her neighbours and she's sat over there chatting to her pal.
Cathy, I don't think she knew Louise was coming.
She's neglecting her guests, Beth.

Mind you, it could become a bit of a chore.
You're still enjoying it, though, are ya? Aye, I'm still liking it.
Ah, well, that's good.
So have you got any plans to Because there's always ways to mix it up if it gets a bit, you know, samey.
Oh, for crying out loud! What? I'm just saying, Eric, this is important, they're trying for a baby.
Michelle does sometimes look kinda, I dunno, kinda .
.
fed up during it.
Does she? Aye, a bit.
Well, you maybe want to try something a wee bit different.
What? Like up the hoop? No! Oh, for Christ's sake! No, I'm just meaning, you know, introduce a bit of variety, you know, ring the changes.
What what about a different room? I mean, you've got a lovely house, you know, make the most of it.
Aye, saying that, there's that big couch, I could just take the cushions off that and pump her on the floor.
Well, there you go.
And the kitchen's nice.
The kitchen, aye.
Mind you, there's raw meat getting cut up in there, that's What about the bathroom? I thought we'd had a tour of the house already? I'm sorry, Eric, I'm just trying to help Alan.
Look, if you're sticking to the bedroom, you might want to think about a wee change of position.
Oh, no, we tried that, the minute I go on my back I just fall asleep.
I watch Robot Wars during the night with the wee woman at the bottom corner of the screen.
Oh, she gets right into it.
She does all the facial expressions to match what they're saying.
Michelle? Michelle? Could you ask Louise something for me? Yes, sure.
Could you ask her if she'd mind teaching me a little bit of sign language? Oh, that's a good idea.
Beth wants to learn some sign language.
MICHELLE LAUGHS What did she say? She said she's enjoying the party.
Oh, teach me some, Louise, teach me something.
What am I saying? How are you? Oh! Not bad, Louise, but this patch is doing my head in.
Oh, do another one, do another one! What did I say? You said how upset you are about your eye.
Teach me, teach me! Oh, God! Oh, I love it! What did I say? You said I'm a friendly neighbour.
Oh, here, I'll need to go to the loo.
I'll tell you, Alan, see when you get to my age, there's a price to pay for drinking lager all night.
Just go there, Eric.
Sorry? Just go up there.
I'm not doing that.
Listen, see when I was doing the decking, to save me trailing all the dust through the house I was just going up the back and doing a piss on the ground.
Makes sense, Eric.

Oh, God.
Eric! Look, I'm I'm sorry, Michelle.

No! Look, it's OK, Eric.
It's more him that I'm annoyed with, to be honest.

It's totally ruined! Here, I'll have a rub at it.
No point.

Um, sorry, I'm still not getting it but but why don't you see if you understand this?! You have come to a party that you were not invited to and you've you've made everybody have to talk really slowly and then you made me spill my drink on on Michelle's cheap rug so now it really is time that you went fucking home!
