you better go home.

Hey, this way.

There you go. Yeah.

Go home.

Go out there.

That's it. Come on.

Oh, don't look at me like that.


All right, then.

One night. Okay?

And then I'm going to take

you back to your owner.

Yeah, deal?

There you go.

I'll see you

in the morning, okay?

Over there?

Excuse me.

Did you lose a cat?

Is it there?


Excuse me.

Did you lose a cat?


Got a little ginger cat down

here if anyone's looking for it.


So what number life are you on?

Apparently, I'm on the ninth.

Hello, did anybody lose a cat?

Get out of here, go away!


Come on.

There you go.

Someone will come

looking for you.

Take care of yourself.

Thank you.

All right, methadone, mate?

Thank you, mate!

Hey! Go on, on your way!

Oh, don't do this, mate.

In all the world, you're

causing an obstruction.

I'm just trying to make

a living here.

I'm not in anyone's way.

It's an health and safety issue.

If you strum there

you're obstructing the exit.

Well, if you stand there

you're obstructing the exit.

Walk to, mate,

or I'll haul you away.

All right...

Up to me, I'd arrest

the lot of y'all.

Oh, you would.

F***ing vermin!

As if I haven't

got enough to do.

Dad! Dad!

Hey, dad.

What are you doing here?

Oh, we're... we're...

We're a bit shopping.

This and that.


Oh, yeah. You good?

Uh, yeah. I've stopped using.

I'm in the program.


Remember that last time?

My own flat and everything...



You remember, Hilary?


Yeah, we're late, darling.

I'm sorry, we've got to...

We were just chatting about

Christmas, actually, you know.

Family and all that...

Coming together...

Christmas dinner. Right, dad?

Oh, I wish we'd known.


our table's full, so...

Always ready for one more

at Christmas, right?

Don't you think, darling,

maybe one more, would...

What, in our house?

We'll have children there.


What's that supposed to mean?

Jack, we're late, come on.

I'm not contagious, you know.

Wait... take this.

No, I don't want any money.

It's... here.

Maybe, um...

Maybe, new year's, okay?

Darling, hold up.

Hey, wait for me.


Hey, mate?

Hey, how are you?

It's okay.

It's okay.

You're hurt.

What have you been doing today?

Did you get into a fight?

Is it okay if I take you

and try and find your owner?

Is it okay?

It's okay.


Down here.

Ah, excuse me?

Would you know

whose cat this is?

Wait, I have a hurt cat here.

It's you with the dogs?

Yeah, it's just in there.

What did you do to her?

No, I didn't do anything.

I just...

Just found him over there.

Don't just stand there.

It's all right.

Here you go.
