Barking Behind Bars

1 Oh, God! Oh.
I'm getting up.
No, no.

You stay there.
You stay there, OK? I'll whip up some coffee and toast.
You're a dream.
No.
No, no, no! Fuck no! What's wrong, babe? Babe? Oh.
Good morning, Mr Wilfred.
How are you today? You're a naughty boy.
Oh, Adam, you're an angel.
There we are.
That's OK.
This looks great.
What was with all the yelling? Oh, I thought we'd run out of milk but I found some I found something.
Tastes great.
So what's on the agenda today? Back to the drawing board, I suppose.
There's a few firms I still haven't contacted.
Small ones - they probably won't have anything but it's worth keeping your name out there.
Mmm.
I can't believe you're finding it so difficult.
Things were going so well for you, babe.
Yeah.
Well, that's what happens when you take your eye off the ball.
Might take you for a walk later.
That'd be great, Adam.
Yeah.
No worries.
Won't keep her long if you don't got no job.
Who knows? How are you gonna afford her? Sarah's got expensive tastes.
Yeah, I know she has.
It's only so long she'll put up with you sitting on your arse watchin' DVDs.
I'll get a job.
Just need to take care of a few things first.
I've actually got to go to the toilet.
Why don't you run down to the lake and try and kill some ducks? OK.
Get here.

Oi! You're fuckin' kidding me.
Adam, you cunt! You get back here.
Sarah.
Where have you been? Sarah, sit down.
Why? What are you doing? Where's Wilfred? Sarah, sit down, please.
What happened? He was chasing cars.
I couldn't stop him.
Is he dead? I'm sorry, Sarah.
Oh! It's not fair.
Poor Wilfred.
He was very brave.
He he didn't want to let go, the poor little bugger.
He kept on tried to hold on.
I'll never forget his eyes.
I shouldn't have taken him for a walk.
No, Adam, you are not blaming yourself.
I know what he's like.
Yeah.
You do.
I want to see him.
Where is he? Oh, you you don't want to see him, sweetie, believe me.
I don't care how bad it is, I need to see him.
Well, you can't.
I took him to a mate of mine's farm and buried him.
I don't care - dig him up.
They burned him.
What? Wild animals dig them up.
Doesn't matter how deep you bury them.
I couldn't let that happen.
So it's finally over.
Yeah.
Come on, come here.
Yeah.
We had a tip-off he might be there today and, sure enough, he was.
Feisty fella.
You don't want to take your eyes off him for too long.
Yeah, he smells a bit fresh.
Must've been eating something.
Or he's been rolling in something.
Hang on.
I know this dog.
There's something about his eyes.
Be careful, Jane.
Oh, it's alright.
I know you, don't I, boy? He's been in here before, ages ago.
It's alright, mate.
No-one's going to hurt you.
Stay back, Jane.
Be careful, Jane.
He just needs some kindness.
Don't you, mate? Do you remember me? Go away! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! - Settle down.
Come on.
- Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Sarah! Jane, what are you still doing here? You should've left hours ago.
Yeah.
Something's been bugging me all afternoon.
Uh, if it's about that mutt, I don't want to know.
Of course you don't.
He's just another number to you.
That's not it, Jane, and you know it.
First rule, don't get attached to the animals.
So I just turn a blind eye to years of cruelty and neglect? In 1995 he was found abandoned in a cardboard box down by the wharves.
In 1997 he was found sorting through garbage at a Werribee dump.
In 2001 he was bailing up children at a 7-Eleven.
Am I the only one who sees a pattern here? Maybe someone will claim him.
No-one's coming to claim him.
Hey, you never know Don't bullshit me, Hank.
That dog won't last the end of the week and you know it.
Hey, you're right, Jane, he probably won't.
So you do what the rest of us do - you go to a bar, you get stupid drunk, you hope tomorrow's a better day.
Sometimes I hate this job.
Nah, screws, they don't understand cooperation.
The only thing they understand is disobedience.
Yeah, the truth hurt, don't it? That's right, keep walking.
No.
You boys may not believe this but I was once like you lot.
Naive, full of hope.
Bloody adorable.
But the world knocked that out of me.
You know, once I I saved this family from a house fire.
Yeah, and what did that get me? Sweet fuck all.
And why? Bloody fire alarm goes off at the same time as I'm barkin' so I can't prove it's me that saved the day.
No ceremony.
No medals.
So I go off the rails, don't I? SOMBRE MUSIC Start fighting, biting, barking, chasing.
A law suit waitin' to happen, they said.
This place is a lot smaller than I remember it.
I s'pose you boys just think I'm a hard old bastard with an axe to grind.
Maybe I am.
I do know one thing.
I'm looking straight down the barrel of a needle on a one-way ticket.
I know when me number's up.
Any of you cunts seen 'Shawshank Redemption'? Oh, fuck it.
What, are you crazy? So you can have her all to yourself? You must be out of your freakin' mind, man.
She's coming with me and that's all there is to it.
She loves me.
Don't you, babe? Wilfred, stay away.
He has a knife knife, knife, knife I've got to get out of here.
Gee, you're doing a good job.
Oh, there's still a few holes that need to be filled in but, um Yeah, it's a start.
I dreamt about Wilfred last night.
Oh, yeah? I've decided I want to bury him here in the backyard.
That way I can talk to him while I'm watering the garden.
Sarah, that's not a good idea.
I'd have to dig him back up again and and It's not a good idea.
But it's what I want.
Isn't that important? Or is it all about forgetting that Wilfred ever existed? You seem to be doing a pretty good job of that.
Now, that is unfair.
I-I've been really supportive this past week.
Is Wilfred really dead? What? You heard me.
It was all so convenient.
Wilfred disappears and so do all of our problems.
Well, I like problems.
And I want to bury Wilfred in the backyard, and if that's so hard for you to understand, then maybe we should reassess a few things.
Sarah Now remember, nothing happens to the girl.
She's OK.
Now, Louie, you know what to do.
Frank.
Frank.
Don't start barking till Leon gives the signal.
And Geraldine Ah, my sweet Geraldine, if only you were pent up in my cage, things could have been so different.
Righto, boys, let 'em have it.
Hey, hey, hey.
What's going on out here? Louie is sick over in cage five.
Louie, what's the matter with you, eh? L-L-Louie.
I'll never forget youse.
I wish youse were coming with me.
Hank.
Jane, what are you doing here? I took your advice and got drunk.
Do you want some company? You said hell would freeze over before you would be interested in someone like me.
I don't know.
Maybe the ice is starting to thaw.
Wait.
I've got a better idea.
Really? Yeah.
Whoo-hoo-hoo! Jane, you'll regret this.
Come Monday morning, you're fired.
Blow it out your arse, Hank.
Jane! Jane! Hello? Is anyone there? What's going on? Someone left the door open.
Mmm.
Thank you all for being here on this tragic, sad occasion.
We're ready to begin.
We are gathered here today to mourn the passing of one of our dearest.
To some, Wilfred was a larrikin.
To others he was a menace.
But to the rest of us he was merely Wilfred the Great.
Nobody knows where he came from and only He up above knows where he is going.
Until that day comes when we all touch God's face in the form of Wilfred we shall mourn him and we shall miss him.
It's often said that in a friend we have found God.
I'm sure no-one here today would disagree that we found God and more in Wilfred.
I'm gonna ask Sarah to come up and say a few words before we finally lay him down to rest in the ground.
I'd like to thank you all for coming here today.
I know some of you have travelled quite a way to get here so Um I've written a poem I'd like to read out for Wilfred.
"Before you came into my life "I knew nothing about commitment and responsibility.
"And although at times it was all a bit too much" ".
.
I've learnt about these things.
"But what you gave me was something no-one else could ".
.
unconditional love, "loyalty, a family.
"I only hope you can find the peace, wherever you are "that you could never find here.
" "I love you, Wilfred, and I always will.
" You can start the music now.
Let's all take a moment now to remember the Wilfred we knew and loved.
# Oh, honey # Yeah, I waited on the captain boat # See you when The sun go down It seems what we have here is a little case of misappropriated individuals.
In other words, Adam faked my death.
I see what's happening here.
Adam faked Wilfred's death.
No way.
Faked his death? No, I didn't.
That's about as low as a pet owner can go.
No, that that's not what happened at all.
Adam, how could you? You fuckin' dog! When the sun goes down.
I know there's nothing I can say to make you forgive me.
What I did today, you know it was despicable.
I've even surprised myself.
But what I will say is I love you.
I always have and I just hope that Shut up, Adam.
Yeah, what you did was really fucked.
And if it had've been anyone else they wouldn't be alive today.
I swear to God I would have cut their fucking head off.
But you you knew that Wilfred running away would have broken my heart and I would never have had any closure.
So you lied to protect me.
And that's the most romantic thing anyone's ever done for me.
Are you serious? I find funerals so sexy.
Let's fuck.
Shit.
Excuse me.
Who the fuck are ya? I fuckin' hate ya.
You have 28 days to vacate.
I can't do it, mate.
I can't just pick up everything and start again.
This is it for me.
I think you and your dog underestimate me.
