and my roughish good looks.

Look, where's this diet lemonade?

He's been like this all night.

He's just found out

his pension's

...and he's finding silly excuses

not to take a pint from his mates.

Your pension's


The little spiv that calls himself

a financial advisor says...'s falling equity bondings

or something like that.

Anyway, I can't afford

to buy a round... I'm covering Shirley's drinks

and I'm not drinking myself.

Anyway, Arthur, there's nothing

and one for yourself.

Iris did that to her husband,

made him go vegetarian.

For his health, she said.

Off you go.

Are you going to tell me

Is it Charlie?

You've not been the same

since this morning.

You should have seen him.

You should have seen the clever

clogs running the place.

Letting him rot without a care.

As long as her balance sheets

add up.

...when he went in there

Now look.


Remember what we said.

We said, we wouldn't let ourselves

Be thankful for what we've got...

...and never forget

I just feel so sodding helpless.

So bloody helpless.

Hello, Mr. Goode.

Sorry to keep you.

Just so you know,

there's a note...

...on Mrs. Goode's

repeat prescription...

...asking that you contact

your doctor.

Is everything ok?

There's never been

a problem before.

I can't tell you anything more,
