We need to take the covers off the pool.


Sarah and Tom are getting a divorce.


Here we go.

It's crazy.

They've been married less than us.

Well, it's either that or kids, I guess.






Now apparently, there is a lovely little

medieval town

about ten minutes from here.

I'm thinking we should... we should go and

investigate tomorrow.


I'm quite up for some pool time though.

Uh-huh. Fine.

We could do both.

I'm gonna go into town and get some

breakfast stuff.

You want anything?

I'm back!

Do you want some breakfast?

- No need to shout.

- Oh shit!

I'd love some.

By the pool would be nice.

By the pool. Okay.

- What are these?

- What?


I thought we were trying again.

We were.

We were? And...?

I changed my mind.

This is something we agreed.

Something we actually talked about,

unlike every other

fucking thing.

What's that supposed to mean?

You know what it means.

Jesus. Look, I know it was hard...

No, you don't.

You have no idea what it was like.

No idea? No fucking idea?

I went through... You said...

We agreed.

Is that all you have to say?

I don't want to go through it again.

We haven't been through anything yet.

F*ck you.

F*ck sake!

- Hi.

- Oh my God!

What happened?

I found this.

You have blood all over your head.

What? I fell.

I fell on my walk.

It... It's fine, really.

We'd better clean it up.

No really, it's fine.

Don't you think it's beautiful?

It's like a perfect shape. I know it's cut

off, you know, at the bottom there,

but I've never ever come across anything

like this.

Paul, I'm going to sleep in the

spare room tonight.


I'm gonna sleep in the spare room tonight.

What? Why?

Because I get too hot and I know you don't

like the window open.

The window open?

I just need some space.

What the f*ck is happening?


You have to tell me what is going on.

- You're scaring me.

- Well, explain and I will stop.

Explain what?

The pills; the spare room.

- I can't.

- Yes, you fucking can!

Why are you taking the pill again, huh?

There's people in our pool.

What the f*ck is going on?

Who the hell are you?

Hey man, we thought the cottage was


Well, it's fucking not, so get the f*ck

out of the pool.

Dude, are you okay? I mean, you've got

blood all over your face.

Yeah. I'll be a lot better when you get

the hell out of here, yeah?

Okay. Okay, we'll be on our way.

You know, we didn't realise anyone was

staying here.

The place looked pretty shut up, man.

But it's no problem. We'll go.

Yeah, you will!

What's going on?

They're fucking trespassing.

That's what's going on.

You know, we'd never have come in if we

knew you guys were staying here.

It's okay. There's no harm done.

No harm done?

We're paying good money for this place.

How about a bit of fucking privacy?

- Well, work is actually paying for...

- That's not the point.

This is our holiday. This is my pool.

Go and get your own fucking pool.

Okay, man. We'll get out of your hair.

There's no need to have a heart attack,

you know.

Get the f*ck out of the pool!

Hang on just one second.

Paul! Paul!

Would you calm down?

He's not done anything wrong and that

poor girl's half scared to death.

Nothing wrong?

They are fucking trespassing.

- You're bleeding.

- F*ck the bleeding.

What the f*ck are you doing?

Ssh. You were so rude to them.

It's embarrassing.

Oh, embarrassing.

They are high jacking my pool.

- They didn't know you were here.

- We're gonna be going now.

- It was real nice meeting you.

- Oh, don't be silly.
