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.

Not you, not you, never you.

Not at all. Come on, off you go.

Don't forget to call me when you get there.

Always go out in groups.

If you get homesick, come home.

And try and find a good taxi service.

Because some of them

have women-only drivers.

Women-only drivers, got it.

Anything else?

Be yourself, you're lovely.


Hi, honey, I'm home.

Hello, Rumps.

Come here.

Hello, darling.

What shall we do this afternoon, eh?

Let's get drunk.

Hi, honey, I'm home.

You can hide all you like.

I've spotted you and we should

get a start on your last week.

Yes, of course.

Good morning, Doreen.

It has always been our good fortune

to share the same train.

No rest for the wicked, Mr Jones.

Doreen, after all these years,

after everything we've been through,

are you still refusing to call me Richard?
