Just a minute. You're naked, but--

Are you wearing socks?

I'm in the street.

Don't want my feet getting cold.

That's a good point, actually.

I'm getting off with a vampire.

What have you two ever done?

-Real women.

-Real women.

Vampire, though.

-What's your name?

-Who are you?

-Well, I'm Paul.

-We call him Snork.

I didn't realize.

-Look what you've done.

-Pushed over a little retard.

-Yeah. But he's my little retard.

Stop! Stop!

Go left, go left, go left.

Wait. Hold up.

Come on.

-Come on, Snork, over.

-Don't hurt your ankle, Snork.

Come on.

Oh, sh*t.

Wakey-wakey. Rise and shine.

Stand by your beds.

Out you come, you lucky, lucky boys.

-Come on, off you go.

-They're not going anywhere.

Been involved in disorderly conduct

and a major disturbance of the peace.

Let them out, you little ponce,

or I'll disturb your bloody peace.

-What does that mean?

-No idea. Okay, off you go.

Can I help you?

Yeah. Start by brushing your teeth.

You been sucking the toilet mat?

-Leave it out. Come on. Off you go.



-Freddie. Send your mom my love.

-Yeah, all right.

-Your dad still around?



That's a shame, that.

Looking forward to my dinner.

Give us a knock later on.

-Morning, Brucie.

-All right, Bill.

These people are queuing for food.

They are Ethiopian peasants

who used to own houses...

...land and cattle.

Elton John's looking for a wife.

Now they possess nothing

but the clothes...

...that hang

from their frail shoulders.

He's a lying sod. He's been eating.

He's got a potbelly and everything.
