if one of them is getting angry...

one of them tells his solicitor

to keep saying no to everything

even though they know

they're in the wrong

which means that even though

a mummy and daddy love

the children very, very much...

and always will...

they just keep getting crosser and...

crosser, until the mummy and daddy

start blaming each other

for every tiny thing even though

none of this would be happening

if the other one had just

listened to him in the first place.

- Dad?

- Yes, Mickey?

These are a bit tight.

Dad! Dad! We've brought

your 12 o'clock pills!

Oh, chase me round the loch

on water skis, why don't you?

Only, you left them behind!

And, er... and it's 12 o'clock!

Come on, you beauty! Come on!

With his heart,

he is supposed to stay calm.

I mean, how can anybody get

so worked up about fishing?

Oh, Jesus!

Never think of looking left and right?


- Is this Scotland?

- No, darling, this is Watford.

When Daddy wakes up,

are you gonna go, "I told you so,"

cos of the traffic congestion?

No, darling.

She's not gonna say, "I told you so. "

Jess! What did you do that for?

It's rude to wake someone up.

- That's right.

- A million thousand...

Oh, God. Look at this lot.

Leave it.

Abi's phone.

Hang on. It's Leon.

I'll call him back.

She'll call you back.

I feel car sick. Can I sit in the front?

Next time we stop, sweetie.

If we're allowed to.

In 50 metres, turn right.

We can't bloody turn right,

there's no right turn.

- She can't hear you. She's a robot.

- She is the most overpriced...

Can we change the voice?

Can we have it in Italian

like we did last time?

No. That's how we ended up in Ipswich.

But we can have it in African language,

say for example,

- either like Chad or?

- Chad isn't a language.
