Oh, she's a beauty.
I mean, look at her.
She's not new, but she looks new.
- I could do the engine.
It's practically a steal.
John Anderson said we could
keep it at his marina free of charge...
at least for a year
till his son comes back.
Oh, here he comes. Don't show you're
- All right?
Ain't she a beauty? A little work
and she'll be in perfect condition.
Yeah, well, let's face it. It's more
than a little work she needs, isn't it?
What's the best price
you can do us?
- Six grand? Are you joking?
Six is a bargain. The owner died
and his mum's got to get rid of it fast.
All right, but the engine's done
and the hull needs work as well.
She could be made seaworthy
in no time.
Take a look at the condition she's in.
Look, we're just working lads.
We don't have this kind of money.
To get a SCOD like this for six
is a once-in-a-lifetime.
- Look, can you give us a minute?
Just give us a minute. Terry.
There's plenty of others
interested in her if you're not.
I could put in 800. Christ, you break
your back and it's hard to save a penny.
- Where you'd get 800 quid from?
- I won 400 at cards.
- Did you?
Come on, you got
some savings, Ian.
But I'm trying to get my end
of a business deal up.
I'd take a pay cut 'cause business is so bad.
he'd loan it to us.
- Yeah, I thought of that. But he's away.
- They must have phones in China.
- It's like Howard's boat, isn't it?
I mean, it's smaller, but it's so much better
Remember when we were kids?
- Oh, yeah.
- What a summer.
I've got to have this boat.
We could pay it off in installments.
I got four numbers in the lottery
last week. Can you believe four?
- Should we do it? Right.
- Yeah, let's do it.
What the hell do you need a boat for?
And how are you gonna pay for it?
- It's secondhand.
fixing it up. You ought to see it.
It's cleaning up like new.
Pay more attention to the restaurant
and less to dreams of the open sea.
You're a bright boy if your head
wasn't always in the clouds.
I wasn't put on this earth
to run a restaurant.
and Ian that boat when we were kids?
What a summer.
Your Uncle Howard's
opening a clinic in China.
the Chinese language.
Can you imagine at his age
learning a hard language like that?
- He's brilliant.
- I'm unimpressed.
You can't afford to be
because the man makes more money
in a week than you earn in a year.
He's got clinics in Switzerland
and Hollywood, and now China.
Mom, can we have one Sunday lunch
where we don't have this conversation?
Well, puts on airs,
takes himself so seriously.
Could we have afforded this house
without my brother's generosity?
Could we have got by over the years
on his paltry earnings?
I mean, who paid
for the holidays?
That's what gave me the heart attack.
