Why not phone up Robin Hood

And ask him

for some wealth distribution?

- Oh, I've got to get to London.

- And leave Wanstead?

Are you mad?

At least you can play

that classical duff.

- I don't want

to play classical.

My dad makes me. I hate it.

I've got to work in his

lame shop all summer, as well.

- Plenty of pianos there

to practice.

- Piss off.

Jack, why you got

to bother me all the time?


My six-year-old sister's got

more brains than him.

- He's just pissed off

he's not gonna have anyone

to beat up, now he's leaving.

- If we stay here,

we'll be deadbeats

just like them wankers.

- On the dole?

- Yeah.

It's what I get for being

the product of a broken home.

Statistics don't lie.

I'm doomed.


Hi, dad.

- On the counter.


on finishing the year.

- Are you serious?

- Oh, I am, indeed.

You've done a great job

this year in school.

I'm proud of you.

Um, that's not all.

I need you to go round

into London for me

and pick up some spare parts

from Al.

I thought you might want

to treat yourself to something

while you're there.

- No, it's alright.

You don't have to.

- Get out of here.

I'll see you tonight.


- The next station

is West Brompton.

Change here

for London Underground

District Line

and National Rail services.

Alight here for Earls Court

Exhibition Centre.

Please mind the gap between

the train and the platform.

- What are you looking at?

[muffled song on headphones]


- I was just wondering

what you're listening to.

- Piss off.

- Come on, I'm curious.

- Curious?

- Come on.

[song continues]



Who are they?

- What, you've been

living under a rock?

- Worse, I think. Wanstead.


- You're funny.

- What's your name?
