Episode 4

1 MORPHEUS: As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to be the Berry Man.
Half man, half tree.
Utterly pure of sin and immune to all temptation.
Why are you so obsessed with the Berry Man? It's just some toss pot in a costume.
Alison! The Berry Man Festival is a Neston tradition.
It's been going on for hundreds of years.
Yeah, so's Fast & Furious.
It doesn't mean it's any good.
That is absolute blasphemy.
I'm skipping the fete this year.
What? We always get pissed together.
It's not that fun, though, is it? I thought you two had plenty of fun last year.
Behind the petting zoo.
Alison, you'll get pissed with me, right? Love to, I promised I'd do this charity tarot tent for cancer or some shit.
Fuck's sake! Does nobody want to get pissed with me? I will, good sir, but only after You wank yourself off to the dance of the Berry Man? He's an ancient wood spirit and utterly chaste, so he wouldn't appreciate a wank.
So fucking joke's on you, innit? HE CRACKS CAN Think that barmaid will be on the kissing booth again this year? No, she did it last year, and put it this way - Co-op ran out of Zovirax.
Great turnout on the scarecrows this year, Verian.
Oh, thanks.
Listen, a bit of a disaster.
You know Terry Bennett bought all those llamas? Alpacas, yeah.
Well, they got into Mockers' field and, basically, they've killed his horse.
Oh, he loved that horse.
I know.
Mark's distraught and he's pulled out, so You mean we don't have a Berry Man? You can't have a Berry Man festival without a Berry Man.
I know.
It hasn't happened since 1795.
Fucking hell, guys! What are we going to do? I don't know.
I was going to ask you if you'd do it, Morpheus.
TRUMPET FANFARE Me? Yes! Ooh! Fuckingfucking yes! High five.
No, fuck it - high ten.
BOTH EXCLAIM Come and see me about thefucking costume.
Yes! Bosh! You're in there, mate.
What? Verian? Well, obviously I won't be pursuing that.
Why? Cos you're saving yourself for Alison? No, I don't fancy Alison.
Why? Has she said something? Of course she fucking hasn't.
She never will, so just go over there and sausage Verian.
I will not be sausaging anyone.
Because I've been charged with the sacred office of the Berry Man.
And I will not abuse that power.
Innit just dressing up like a twat and mooching about? He's an ancient wood spirit! DOOR BELL DINGS Closed.
I just need some milk for this little guy.
He's a common pipistrelle bat.
He's hurt his wing so I'm nursing him back to health.
It's what I do.
I rescue bats.

I can buy you some.
I can go to the shop right now and bring it to you in your house.
Where's your house? Well, I'd only come if I was invited.
Am I invited? It's not like I need an invite.
I'm not a vampire.
But I would if I had your consent.
I always check for consent.
I'm sure there'll be some at the fete.
Perhaps I'll see you there.
Top bananas! HE CHUCKLES SHE GROANS Fuck's sake.
You all right? Yeah.
Look, I'll catch you later, you know, if I've got the time.

I thought you weren't coming.
I'm I'm just checking out the sexy man at the bat tent.
You seen him? Yeah, but I reckon he's got poo under his fingernails.
And I'd clean out every one of them.
Look after my tent for me while I go for a piss? No.
You tried this last year.
You'll leave me here while you go and get drunk.
No, I'm just going to go to the loo.
Do you want anything? From the loo? Yes.
Get me a cider.
From the toilet? Drop the act.
Can you at least show me how you do it? So, do you need to ordain me or give me a turban or something? Nah, it's just a load of bollocks.
Just turn over the cards and come up with some bullshit like SHE GASPS "You tried to dodge the fate because you're afraid of fucking Kent again.
" That's what the spirits said.
Yeah, well, the spirits can gosuck onmy tits, then.
Now I'm off for that piss.
You just winked at the person you're lying to.
I'm not lying! Oh.
So you came in the end.
To help Alison.
Give us a turn, then.
All right.
SHE GASPS You got the twat card.
It means you're a massive twat.
Yeah, but you dealt the cards so she who dealt it is the twat.
Yeah, but it's more on your side of the table, so you're the twat! Actually, you're the twat.
You're the twat! Fine.
If I say I'm the twat, can we just please go and get a beer? Let's see what the spirits have to say.
SHE GASPS It says you're a twat again.
Nice one.
Want a beer? Get me a pint.
Will do.
It's looking really, really good.
It's such an honour to be asked.
Looking forward to the ceremony? A gift of food and wine from the villagers.
It's more than that, Verian.
It's what the Berry Man stands for.
He reminds us there's more to life than the basic human vices of greed, desire andtemptation.
You make it all sound very noble.
II'm a bit worried about the face paint.
I'veI've got some eczema behind Behind your ear? Yeah.
Me too.

Verian, I thought we were announcing the winners together.
And I thought the Berry Man needed his space.
I like you, Verian.
I really do.
Me too.
But I'm the Berry Man now.
I have responsibilities to this village.
Mypenile desires have to come second.
So there arepenile desires? Of course.
Oh! I may be the Berry Man but I'm still a man.
But there are rules that must be obeyed.
No, look, if it's about the village rule, then, technically the administration tent is outside the parish boundaries.
No, the parish boundaries finish at the crossroads just past the Co-op.
But they were extended to there in 1872.
And as the office of the Berry Man was created in 1695 .
it predates the boundary change.
So in the administration tent, the parish rules Do not apply.
do not apply.
Oh, watch the costume.
You're not the Berry Man in here.
