When I was a kid,

I thought I was gonna grow up

to be a hero.

Ooooh, shit!


We'll come back tonight. Rob sixpence

off your dad for sweets, OK?

Leave us alone, mister,

we ain't done nothing wrong.

Give us another drop of tea there,

darling, will you?

Your da's gonna be a winner tomorrow.

I can feel it in my water.

You'll give me your crock of gold

for the housekeeping.

You'll not be blowing it

on new toys and those bloody horses.

The wee man

had to have a proper boy's bike.

Can't have him riding around on

hand-me-down girls bikes at his age.

And anyway

he's had nothing new for ages.

Aye, I know how he feels.

Didn't I get you

those washing gloves you wanted?

You'll get no respect if you look like

you've been dragged through a hedge.

- Aye, Dad, you've told me.

- Here.

You can always tell

the worth of a man by his shoes, Son.

You remember that.

- Always keep your shoes polished.

- Aye, Dad.

Daddy, can I have some money?

- What for?

- Nothing.

There you are.

Hey, don't go spending it all on

cigarettes and loose women, JJ.

Excuse me.

There's still about ten more

to come. What do you want?

Two tickets for Butch Cassidy

and the Sundance Kid, please, missus.

Away off and give my head peace. Next.

He said two tickets for

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

It's not for wee kids.

Now... frig off.

Or I'll set Sidney on yous.

Look, missus,

we spied you lumbering Sidney.

So if we don't get in, we're gonna

stand outside and tell everyone,

you're a big, dirty whore.

You've a filthy mouth on you, wee lad.

See, if you were my son, I'd wash

your mouth out with carbolic soap.

"Oh, Sidney. You're so strong, Sidney. "

Two, was it, boys?

- Aye, missus, two.

- In the balcony.

Ah, everythings got
