(BREATHING HEAVILY)

(BABY CRYING)

# Blue is where I want to be

# When I'm down I'm in the sea

# Looking up at monsters in the clouds

# Red's the colour when you're dead

# If you find me gone, I'm just in bed

# Reading up on fairy tales instead

(GURGLES)

# Now I know so many things

# Got feet and I got wings

# To carry me back home

# To my house that's made of bricks

# Well, that's just such a fix

# To ever hold me down

# White is what I was to start

# Broken by my open heart

# Dum-de-dee-dee

# Dee-dee, dum-de-dum #

(SKUNK) Hi, Rick.

Hi, Skunk.

That looks good.

Oh, um...

Yeah, you have to do

the water first... Um...

And then the suds

and then the water again,

um, to like...

rinse it.

Is it hard?

Oh, it's... it's really hard.

But I... I like it...

I like it when something's clean

'cause you, you see it dirty

and then you clean it,

and then it's... (STUTTERS)...clean

and you wash it

and it's clean

and then it's done. (CHUCKLES)

Cool. I'll see you later, yeah?

See you.

Hi, Mr Oswald.

Hello, darling.

(RICK GRUNTS) Ah!

No! No!

(RICK SCREAMS)

Rick.

Are you okay, Rick?

(DOOR OPENS)

- (MRS BUCKLEY) Rick? Rick!

- (WHIMPERS)

Dave! Dave!

Skunk, go home!

Go back into your house.

(SKUNK) It was Mr Oswald.

Oh, my God. Oh, my...

Dave!

My baby. My...

(SKUNK) Jed.

- (POLICE CHATTER ON RADIO)

- Can I come with you?

Can I come in the same car?

- Would that be okay, if I come with him?

- I'm afraid not.

You're more than welcome to...

(MR BUCKLEY) We'll, um,

drive down behind.

(JED) I don't get it.

Why is Rick the one they arrest?

- (ENGINE STARTS)

(BOB) Fucking give it to me!

(SASKIA) Dad, f*ck off! No.

Shut up! You're too fat to sing.

Shut up.

- No.

(SNIFFING)

(UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYING ON TV)

What the f*ck is this?

- Who have you been having sex with?

- I haven't!

I didn't even know what it was!

Oh, don't give me that bullshit.

Where did you get it?

- I stole it.

- Bullshit. Stole it from who?

- I ain't...

- Huh? I taught...

Didn't I teach you?

- What?

- Keep your fucking legs shut.

Give me his name.

Give me his fucking name!

Right. (MUTTERS) Here you...

(SUSAN) No, Dad!

(SASKIA) Not the telly.

I will!

Give him his name,

(MAN ON TV) # Up

# Across and thrust, thrust, thrust

What the hell are you looking at?

You dirty perv.

Rick Buckley.

Rick Buckley?

He forced himself on you, didn't he?

No, no, we, we...

- Dad.

The dirty, retarded fucking animal.

- Hi, Mr Oswald.

- Hello, darling.

(RICK GRUNTS) Ah!

- Hello, Mr Oswald.

(GRUNTS)

(DR MORTIMER) All right.

You can put your clothes back on.

You are a fucking prick!

- You do your fucking job!

- (POLICEMAN) You talk to me like that...

- This fucking rapist...

- Just calm...

- ...needs to be put behind bars!

- Calm down, Mr...

(DR MORTIMER)

Your daughter has not been raped.

(BOB) What the f*ck

are you talking about?

(DR MORTIMER) Your daughter's a virgin,

Mr Oswald.

She's never had intercourse.

- 'Course she fucking has! She's...

- Dad. Dad, she's right.

It never happened.

Susan.

- I only said it did because...

- Susan...

(SOBBING) You wouldn't believe what

I told you and I didn't want you

- to smash up the telly.

- Susan, Susan, Susan. Susan.

All right, you don't have to be afraid.
