There are some things

we can hide from...

things we can leave behind.

and there are other

things that are inside us,

carried with us,

wherever we go.

Things that are

a part of us,

before we've even

left the womb.

Philip!

Philip!

Don't worry, Cathy.

Everything's going to be all right.!

I suppose every family

has its own share of quirks.

But the Furlongs were always

a little more peculiar than most.

Just like Philip's father,

Charlie Furlong.

One day, Charlie saw something

he never wanted to see.

Something that had

a profound effect on him.

Ever since then, whenever

he thought about sex

Charlie Furlong went blind

for 37 minutes.

Mr. Charlie Furlong?

Yes, Mrs. Charlotte Furlong?

I'm ready for you.

It caused him a

lifetime of problems,

not least on his wedding night.

Their son,

Philip,

also had an ability.

Like Charlie...

Open your mouth.

and all the Furlong

men before him...

he, too, had a strange gift.

Whenever he got frightened

it knocks out everything

electrical around him.

This should not have

been a problem for him.

Except...

Cathy, you still with me, Love?

Oh my God!

Help me, Philip.

Cathy Furlong passed away

before she even saw her baby.

But she had already

chosen a name:

Marianne,

if it was a girl.

And if it was a boy...

James Furlong.

By the time he

was ten years old,

James Furlong had

lost his grandfather, too.

Charlie Furlong died

in a car accident.

He passed an advertisement

for a Wonderbra...

then crashed straight

into a tree.

Look, but don't touch,

you'll ruin his makeup.

Look, here is the first time

I saw you in a photograph.

Having lost her husband

and daughter-in-law,

James' grandmother regarded

the Furlong Condition

as nothing short of a curse.

And she was worried about

its potential for James.

It was she who tried to warn

him about his family history.

She moved in and

home schooled James,

keeping a close eye on him.

Come on, James, it's easy!

But instead of listening to her,

James secretly wished

that he, too, had an ability.

Like walking through walls,

or bionic strength,

or, the ability to fly.

Where the hell have you been?

James.

I got kicked.

Kicked?

But who?

There's something wrong with the cow.

James,

what happened?

What did you do, poison 'em?

Calm down, Philip.

Don't tell me to calm down!

Half the herd is lyin' dead out there.

Even the fuckin' grass is dead!

What are you talking about?

I knew there was

something wrong with you

from the day you were born!

- Come back here!

- Oh, Philip, Philip.

Get out of the car!

How dare you even

set foot in there!

You ruined everything!

What did you do?

Oh, don't worry, James,

it's only temporary,

until we find a nice family for you.

C'mon, kids. Keep it going!

Keep it going!

Ah, don't be scared,

that's just Tinker,

He's a sweetie. He'll be fine

once he get to know you.

This is the dormitory

and that is going to be your bed,

where I'm sure you'll

be very comfortable.

And why aren't you boys

at hurling practice, huh?

Liam!

This is James.

and I want you to make him

feel very welcome here.

Okay?

Yes, Mrs. Moore.

Good!

Liam!

Could you please take

our new friend down to

the laundry room and

make sure he's given

something good

and warm to wear.

Yes, Mrs. Moore.

Now, run along!

Here, you can wear this.

It looks good.

Where's your clothes go?

Hey, gorgeous,

where you hidden your cunny?

Come on, let's go.

Come on, Liam, then.

They're so stupid!

They always hide

them in the same place.

Thank you.

Look who's robbing

the kitchen again?
