(INAUDIBLE)

(PRISONERS CATCALLING)

You love ladyboys!

Hey.

Yes.

Do you remember me?

I just wanted to

say thank you

for the other day.

For helping me when,

when I was in a bad way.

Okay.

And I wanted

to ask as well if I...

If I could get

some cigarettes?

I've got no family.

I'm going to get some money

next week, okay?

In my account.

I just need you borrow me

some cigarettes,

and I'll pay you back.

Red ones.

Billy.

What's your name, by the way?

Nice to meet you, Fame.

Uh, can I just get

one more packet, please?
