Down Terrace

Synopsis: After serving jail time for a mysterious crime, Bill and Karl get out of jail and become preoccupied with figuring out who turned them in to the police. On top of that, the "family business" is on the rocks, and the motley crew of criminals who operate out of Down Terrace aren't feeling terribly trusting of one another. It might look like an ordinary house, but at Down Terrace, the walls are closing in...

- That's good of you, Garv.

- That's all right.

- I'll sort it out next week.

- No sweat.

- I'll bring it round to your house.

- Or down the club.

- Yeah, okay. Thanks, man.

- It's only money, isn't it?

- Eric:
Any beer about?

- Only what you brought, mate.

I thought this was meant

to be a big party.

Well, I'll pop down the offy.

Who wants what?

Get us some whiskey,

some wine and some beer.

And some matches

or a lighter.

- No, a lighter.

- All right.

- ( Bill sighs )

- Okay.

( phone ringing )

Oh, f*ck's sake.

Where's Garvey getting

the booze from?

- Bill:
Just the offy over the road.

- Valda's coming round.

- Bill:
Who's coming over?

- Valda's coming round.

Ah. That's his new bird.

Is it?

Karl:
I've been going out

with her for a year.

Bill:
He's not been going out

with her for a year at all.

How long have you

actually known her?

- I haven't seen her in about six months.

- He hasn't seen her.

- How long did you go out for?

- About a year-- 10 months.

Eric:
I thought I heard

she done one.

She did, but she just rung up.

She's coming round.

Eric:
Maybe she's pregnant.

( laughs )

Bill:

Yeah, that's--

that's extremely unlikely.

I fast for January.

No to poisons, no to drugs,

no food.

I only allow myself tea.

- Karl:
And whiskey.

- F*cking hell, Bill.

- I feel like a teenage tantric Superman.

- Yeah, so do I.

Bill:

I'm a simple person.

I like to reconnect

to the essentials.

Go on.

Come on.

Come on, Eric,

you're strong,

you big-boned bastard.

This is like tempered steel.

Come on.

You do it to me,

then I'll do it to you.

- Come on!

- Eric:
Bad-tempered steel.

Come on, Eric,

I'll let you have a go.

- Come on, then.

- Let's have it.

( all laughing )

- Looks like a crossover.

- Go on, take a dig.
