Guess what? I heard about Nikki.

Nikki, do I know Nikki?

Yeah, from school.

Oh, one boob much smaller

than the other.

Yeah, right, tiny tit,

Nikki, exactly.

Yeah, well, her husband's

quite touchy feely, right?

How did you know all this?

'Cause I spoke to her

a couple weeks ago.

Do you not speak to her any more?


Why don't you come on Friday?

The girls do genuinely

want to see you.

They always ask about you.

Yeah, and I want to see them, too.

- Really? Do you though?

- Yeah, of course I do.

I've sort of given up on people,

haven't I?

I've told you that,

like, a million times.

Sorry, I'm being a bitch.

Yeah, you're being a bitch.

So, this is amazing

in every respect.

It's your place or no place,


Awesome, but, awkward,

Make it so, Jimbo. Make it so.

No, what are you doing?

No. It's just for, you

know, for the lads in the...

Oh, you're such a penis,

I can't...

So what he says, for the lads.

- I'm coming out.

Good night.

One, two, oh!

All right, fancy pants.

Are you coming out

with us tonight?

Nah, I'm just... I'm gonna

head in and have a quiet one.

Been caning a bit lately.

Oh, I lost my jacket.

It's the one I just got.

Oh, shit bags.

You looked wealth in it.

I know. Oh, well, it

was good while it lasted.

All right, chica,

I'll see you later.

- Have fun.

- We will.

Here you go, Francis.

What have you done

with your hair?

Don't over react. I

didn't mean it like that.

What are you doing here?

Charming way to

greet your mother.

I meant to say what

a lovely surprise.

- No, you didn't.

- No, I didn't.

Well, can I come in

or are we going

to stand here like lemons?

Like lemons, preferably.


Here, I bought you a present.

It's a mindfulness CD.

This week mindfulness,

last week was it naked yoga?

What's next week gonna be,


Will you just open

the bloody door?

What I don't understand is,

why couldn't you

just phone first

like a normal human being?

What, so you can just

ignore the phone?


Jesus, why is nothing

ever simple to you?

Since you were little,

exactly the same.

No, no, no, no.

God, it's hot in here.

I don't wanna go.

Look, you're coming.

I don't care.

You've gotta stop this.

The heating's not on.

Anyway, Mom, I gotta go.

F*ck off, will you,

Daphne, I am boiling.

- Okay, Mom, I'm sorry.

- No, I'm sorry.

Just send me a cab.

Oh, don't worry, mate.

Hello, Scratch.

What's that?

No, don't I got balls?

I keep turning and turning you.

Yeah, can you, um,

can you ask the chef

to make sure that he uses fresh

chilies in that Saag Aloo.

I'm not picky.


Ah, it's fine.

I'm not in a rush.

What's the word Word up

Hey, alecbah, God is great.

- You're amazing.

- Yeah, you know, I'm not Muslim.

- Yeah, I know.
