- I hope not.

Oh, shot. Ding dong!

Hey, one more week, old son, and you'll

be doing this all day every day.

This is going to be our new office.

It's what we've worked our

whole lives for, isn't it?

- Eh?

- Yeah.

Yeah, I suppose you're

right, my friend.

Yep. Living the dream,

old son. Living the dream.

No more answering to the man.

We call and we... take the shots.

- Ah, that's not bad.

- Nice one.

- Whoo-hoo!

- Sure we won't be bored now?

Bored? Bored?

What, with all this? Bored!

As if.

- Oh!

- Oh, no. It's not gone again, has it?

- Oh, yeah. Shit!

- Anything I can do?

Yeah, just... just put your...

put your thumb right there, mate.

Oh, I'd better not stand

there. People will talk.

Now, don't forget: always

wash your jeans inside out,

if it looks swollen,

it probably is, and...

and never put anything into your

mouth that hasn't been boiled first.

- Oh, it's Dad.

- Oh.

Hi, Dad.

Hello, my darling.

Have you left yet?

I'm just setting off. I'm with Mum.

'Lucky girl, going to Edinburgh.'

Your Mum and I were quite the

dynamic pair on campus in our day.

Maybe I'll buy a flat near you

and relive my student days.

- Er... no, thanks, Dad. It's my turn.

- 'Yes, it is indeed.'

Don't know where Jerry's going.

No, Jerry's getting lost.

'So what are you gonna

do now you're retired?'

'Oh, I don't know.'

Maybe I'll finally buy that boat and

sail around the world, you know.

- You were gonna do that with Mum.

- 'That's true, I was.'

Dad, I have to go. I've got

a big drive ahead of me.

OK. Call me when you get in, now.

I love you, Sophie.

'Love you too, Dad.'

- He's threatening to relive his student days.

- Mmm.

- What were you two like at college?

- Naive, unrealistic, ill-prepared.

So, everything that I am right now.
