Where can I go from Your Spirit?

Where can I flee

from Your presence?

If I go up to the heavens,

You're there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

if I settle on the far side of the sea,

even there,

Your Hand will guide me.

There is no place you can go,

no place you can be,

where you are not in the presence

of the Lord our God.

There is no thought

you can have,

no dream

you can dream,

where the Lord our God

does not see.

If I go up to the heavens,

You are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

if I settle

on the far side of the sea,

even there,

Your hand will guide me.

If I make my bed in the depths,

You are there.

Dorothy? We're back.


Naughty baby won't drink its milk!


Shh. Shh.

- No, please!

- Calm down.

You see what I mean?

Absolutely normal.

Can I have a cigarette?

Things are still very...


There's no rush.

You take all the time you want.

Where should I begin?

You wanted this case.

You knew how difficult it would be.

But you still wanted it.

You insisted.

I wanted to go.

I needed to.

I had to get away

before the city smothered me.

They're riding our backside!

Hurry up!

Hurry up!


Go! Step on it! Step on it!

Come on, lads.

The Lord giveth,

and the Lord taketh away.

Look over there!

You all right, miss? You're okay?

I wasn't speeding.

There were two cars racing each other.

Racing each other?

An orange and a blue one.

It's hardly a diving watch you've got there.

Let it dry.

It'll tick again in a day or two.

Well, we can't

sit around here all night.

Wait. There's a back entrance.

The psychiatrist.

- Gloria.

- Did you have a bit of an accident, huh?

All right, Colin?

You come with me.

We'll get you dried off.

Here it is. Isn't a suite,

but I hope you'll be comfortable.

I'll maybe get you another blanket.

It's been cold these last few nights.

The heating's been on all day,

so there should be

plenty of hot water.

This is the bathroom.

Should I run a bath for you?

I'll bring you up another towel.

Don't take any notice of the menfolk.

They're decent enough men at heart.

Be back up in a few minutes.

Bring you up a bit of supper.

There you are.

Did you sleep well?

Not with an electric guitar

playing over my head all night.

That's funny.

There's no one here but ourselves.

You were maybe dreaming.

It's a lovely day.

I'll get you some white pudding.

It's delicious. You'll love it.

How long will it take to fix this?

It's scrap.

Even if we could get the parts,

it would cost more

than the car's worth.

Can I rent a car?

I've only got that pickup over there.

- Is it safe?

- How safe was your BMW?

I'll get you the keys.

You must understand that I'm here

as much as for your sake

as for Dorothy's.

You're already making excuses for her?

I'm trying to find out the truth.

The truth?

The truth is...

you'll find some name for her condition,

and in another couple of years,

she'll be out there abusing

someone else's child,

maybe even her own.

Can you tell me

what happened that night?

That was the first time

we used Dorothy as a babysitter.

I had my doubts,

but the pastor said she was all right.

Dorothy? We're back.


Naughty baby won't drink its milk!


He's my baby.

He's my baby. He's my baby!

- Get away from him!

- He's my baby!

Hello, shit face!

What have you done?

What have you done?

What have you done!

Come on. Come on!

Pastor, you gotta

let us on to the mainland.

It's an emergency. Please!

In this case, we'll make an exception.

Well, I'll call for assistance.

They'll send a helicopter.
