- I'm gonna win!

- No-o..

This one's on me, well..

Look at the dolphins.

Mr. Weston lived a life..

Was of great benefit to his community

and to his family.

And our hearts go out to Lil and Ian

at this time.

It turn out?

Yeah, well you know..

You give the people what they want..

I'm sorry but you know what?

I just never really got the point of that.

Well, I can't said that it was

a huge surprise..

Or I wouldn't take a drive with him

anywhere if I could avoid it.

He thought speed limits are for cowards.

The boys are taking it very hard.

Are you okay?



- Hey.

- Hey.

Where's mom?

With Lil.

I think you should take Ian down the beach.

Come on Ian,

do you want to go down to the beach?

Let's go.

Let's get our stuff.

Hey, you want to catch some blue crabs?

Yeah, sure.

God, Lil look at that..

Did we do that?

We must have been.

We certainly did.

They're beautiful.

They're like young gods.



We did alright.

You had a good day?


Are you hungry?



We'll be there.

What is that?

I look like an angry boy.

With that chin.

That's horrible.

Oh yeah that one, yeah..

I'm pretty happy with that.

Yeah, it's nice but not in the same league.

- Really? As those two?

- Yeah.

- No way.

- Right?

There's something about them.

- I don't know.

- It's like sort of an unearthly aura.

What's that?

They're looking at pictures of themselves

as nimfits..

They're admiring their own beauty.

Let's have a look.

- Hey!

- Give it back!

- Hold on.

- Wow, wow..

Come one, give us a break.

It was a long time ago.

Time flies, doesn't it? I'll tell you though..

We may have been prettier then, but..

- I think we have much more character now.

- Yeah. You know what?

- She might be right.

- Yeah, that's..

That's true.


Here's to our mothers.

Thank you, my darling.

- Come on, Tom. Give me a hand.

- Okay.

Are you alright?

Yeah, I'm fine mom.

Dinner's ready.

Remember that time when you had boobs

and I didn't? And I was..

Well, you soon made up for it.

It never stopped the boys from buzzing around you, did it?

Yeah, but the boring jocks you never had

anything to say.

You had the interesting guys,

with long hair..

They wrote poetry and smoked the old..

Mine were just dull.

They still are, aren't they?

The good Saul.

Come on, he's not so much dull as..

He's just.. Persistent.

I want to know more about your boobs.

Well, it was quite serious and..

But Roz, she was very very comforting.

She used to say..

Don't worry, pop this in your bra

and they'll be coming along soon.

And so they were.

Right Tom,

I think that's enough on this topic.

I don't think it's entirely exhausted.

One queen.

And the king.

- Ace.

- Cheat.

It's your face.

It's always your face.

I don't want to play anymore, I don't like it now.

- Hey.

- Hi.

- You're very late.

- It was a big day.

- In what way?

- I'll explain later.

If you're hungry,

we ate all of yours.

- Nah, there's plenty more in the kitchen.

- Now Roz..

My turn to shuffle.

I'm done.

Taking off.


Early start.

Are you coming?


We're gonna watch a movie.


I'll see you guys tomorrow.


Good night.

Thanks boys for cleaning up.

Very nice..

- No worries.

- No worries.


I've been offered a job.


Singing lecturer and drama

at Sidney University.


It's a great department.

It's quite a salary hike.

- Wow.

- Right?

Sounds like you want to take it.

Yeah, well..

Yes, I do.

Of course I do.



How would that work?

Would you fly back on the weekends?
