who are running around,

trying to make money

out of this godforsaken house

to make ends meet.

It's a professional engagement

she's been offered,

and she wants to do it.

Does she really want to?

Yes, look at her!

Or is it just you trying to

make up for your own failures?

Oh, well, I can only bow

to your superior knowledge

of failure.

You are the Grand Poobah

of it.

You are so fucking

childish.

It takes years to write

a great novel.

And it takes you just as long

to write a shit one.

Go away, Mum!

I'm revising!

Oh.

Sorry, I didn't realize

you were here.

I'd say the same goes

for this lot.

You caught the show then?

This is my

She did kill herself.

But thanks anyway.

Fucking useless asshole.

Come on, Posy,

get in the car.

We need to get going

if we're gonna really

f*ck your father off.

You said a bad word!

Nice!

Bye.

Bye.

Have you got any ID?

Yeah, definitely me.

No.

Are you 18?

Yes.

Can you prove it?

There.

Are these not the breasts

of an 'I 8-year-old?

That'll be 299,

please.

I can't believe we're stooping

to the hired help...

for friendships now, Beth.

What's going on?

Your daughters invited

the bloody cleaner for dinner.

Which one?

Well, I assume it's
