This is a final warning. OK.

Double rehearsals Monday.

Lunchtime and after school.

I want you all there on time.

- Hi, Kenny.

- Wanker.

Fucking wanker.

- Oi, oi!

- Oi, oi, Macca. Where have you been?

Killing Pakis.

Oh, Kenny boy here's only gone

and given in, in't he?

Going down Steady Eddie's

fucking finally. Having a chop.

- Gonna be one of us, are you? Huh?

- Yeah, I'm ready. Yeah.

- Yeah? Well, come on then.

- Let's do it.

Martini. Cinzano.

Tia Maria. Anyone?


Oh, look at that.

Earth calling Tim.

Come in, Tim. Tim?

- Someone's drunk everything.

- I thought you were at rehearsals.

- So did I.

- Yeah, well, it is Friday, you mad cow.

- You've had 'em at it all week.

- Thank you, Tim.

- I thought you were on my side.

- Oh, I am, believe me.

You should hear what the rest

of them are saying.

- Oh, spare me the details.

- Mine was shit, by the way.

- Thanks for asking.

- Oh, sorry, love. How was your day?

Shit. Thanks for asking.

Oh... God, that Davy

can sing, though.

Yeah, and such dreamy eyes.

I love it when you take

an interest in my work.

I don't wanna sound like an alkie, but

I got some gin stashed in my wardrobe.

Oh, gin. That's just the taste

of disappointment, innit?

Well, why don't we do something

different tonight?

Why don't you show me

some of your old haunts?

Oh, they knocked most of them down.

Not so fast, man.

You've gotta look for the bubbles.

I'm trying to.

I'm trying to get it in.

Dad, there's no more clean shirts.

Well, your nan haven't been round,

have she?

- Yeah, well, I'm going out tonight.

- Look, spray some of that Brut on it.
