Good, cos we just need someone

for the week, lad.

We're not running a charity

for waifs and strays, like.

- Have you pressed my collared shirt, Nan?

- It's hung up in your wardrobe.

If you would but try looking further

than your own backside.

Right. Got any clean socks an' all?

Go easy on the sauce tonight, lad.

I need you to take me

up to Top Fell early tomorrow

show them ewes to this one.

They'll be ripe to drop.

- Do you hear me?

- Aye, I've heard you.

What are you two in cahoots about?

Nowt. Ta.

Oi, ignorant!

Why don't you ask him if he fancies a pint?

No, please, it's OK.

I've been travelling a long time.

It's best I will just go to sleep tonight.


Make sure the immersion's off an' all.



- Alright?

Er, get us a pint in, Han.

I'll just be a sec.

- What's up wi' you?

- Nowt.

Well, do you wanna tell your face?

- Is your dad any better?

- No, he's getting on wi' it, you know.

- It must be tough for yous.

- It's a' right.

I thought once you lot escaped to your fancy

colleges and that, you'd never come back.

It's reading week, isn't it?

You know what me mam's like.

Came up with a couple of my uni mates.

Makes it bearable.

Brought 'em to gawp and laugh at the natives?

Get over yourself.

You're not that interesting

as a local tourist attraction.

Got a spare one of them or what?

Come on, you tight wad.

I'm just a poor student.

Come on.


We should have a night out.

Bradford or somewhere?

- What?

- That's what I love about folk like you.

You f*ck off to your posh colleges an' that

and swan back here on your holidays,
