Whenever I'm with you,

I always end up getting hurt,

every time, guaranteed.

Don't blame me.

I wasn't with you.

That's what you said about

the greenhouse.

That was 20 fucking years ago.

Right, I'm gonna knock this

back into place.

How? I don't want you to.

- Shut up and hold still.

- Wait, wait, wait, do it slowly!

Nice hair, Andrew.

Just had it done?

Nice hair, Andrew.


Dad asked to see me.

Nice haircut, Andrew.

A lot of work's gone into that.

Keep him out there

till we get the call.


Okay, time for work.

I need you to stop whining

and sort yourself out.


Because you are going

to have to speak to her.

- To who?

- To fucking...

the woman upstairs.


I told you, she knows me.

She comes in the club all the time.

That's why it has to be you.

Oh, yes, okay.

What do you want me to say?

Well, you have to say

a lot of things but...

but more importantly,

you have to sound like someone

who is gonna kill her

if she fucks about.

- I'm not gonna kill her.

- I never said you had to, did I?

You just have to sound like

someone who would if they had to.

Well, what do you

want me to say, then?

You have to tell her

that if you get any more

trouble out of her,

you're gonna break

her fucking fingers.

I can say that easily.

Why are you making a big deal of it?

Because you couldn't scare

a child in the dark.

You have to say it right.

You have to... like you're fucking hard.

Okay, let's go.

But no, no, no.

Say it to me first.


Just... do it, come on.

Okay, fine.

Any more trouble from you, miss,

and I'll break your fingers.

Right, say it again, harder.

Any more trouble from you, miss,

and I'll break your fingers.

- That was rubbish.

- Well, how should I say it...?

Any more trouble from you,

you fucking bitch,
