I wasn't in the shop. I was outside. I didn't see anything.


It's Debbie on the end. She knows a man on the Mirror. Five hundred quid for an interview.


Oh that's brilliant! Give it here.

(Rose takes the phone from Jackie and ends the call.)


Well, you've got to find some way of making money. Your job's kaput and I'm not bailing you out.

(The telephone rings again. Jackie answers it.)


Bev! She's alive. I've told her, sue for compensation. She was within seconds of death.


What're you drinking, tea? Nah, nah, that's no good, that's no good. You're in shock. You need something stronger.


I'm all right.


Now, come on, you deserve a proper drink. We're going down the pub, you and me. My treat. How about it?


Is there a match on?


No, I'm just thinking about you, babe.


There's a match on, ain't there.


That's not the point, but we could catch the last five minutes.


Go on, then. I'm fine, really. Go. Get rid of that.

(Rose has brought the Auton's arm home. They kiss, then Mickey picks up the arm.)


Bye, bye.



(Mickey pretends to be strangled by the arm, then leaves.)


Fire then spread throughout the store. Fifteen fire crews are in attendance though it's thought there is very little chance of saving the infrastructure.

(Whistling, Mickey throws the arm into a rubbish bin, while somewhere nearby a couple are having a blazing row.)

[Rose's bedroom]

(Next morning, Rose's alarm goes off at 7:30 as usual.)


There's no point in getting up, sweetheart. You've got no job to go to.

[The Tyler's flat]
