[ Rattling ]

Donkeys On

The Lawn. Sh*t!

That's It!

I Don't

Want To Go.

They're Trying

To Get Rid Of Us Before They Arrived.


A Few Of The Residents

Are Just Leaving

On A Day Excursion

But, Um, Come On Through

To The Sitting Room.

We'll Get You


And I Can Explain

All About Life Here At Woodlane.

I'm Not Going.

I Am Not Going.

Actually, She's

Just Trying To Get Rid Of Us.

Heather, Hazel...

She's Just Trying To Get Rid Of Us.

Let Me Tell You

Something About This Bloody Place.

Are You

Looking Forward To Your Day Out?


I'm Not Going, And You Can't Make Me.

We're Not

Going, Anyway.

If She's Not Going,

I'm Not Going.

Do Those Two Hags

Never Stop Whining?

Shall We All Come

Through To The Fire,

And Settle

Down, Yes?

By The Way,

Someone Went Into My Room

And Left The

Toilet Seat Up

While I Was

At Breakfast.


Hazel, Why Would Anyone Do Anything Like That?

So That People

Would Think I Had Men In.


[ Giggling ]

Men In Your Room.

That'll Be The Day.


Wait For Me!

They Practically

Ran Out Of The Place.

[ On Speaker Phone ]

Oh No! You'll Have To Advertise Again.

You Do Realise That

In The Last Six Months,

You've Lost Two Nurses,

Six Carers,

And Three Residents

Because Those Four Obnoxious Old...

Two Residents.

Mrs. Holland Died Of

A Massive Heart Attack.

Yeah, Well I'm Sure

They Caused It.

Look, As

Your Accountant,

I've Said It Before

And I'll Say It Again,

Get Rid Of Them.

Got To Call You Back.

What's All This?

Well How About,

"Hi, Ellie, How's It Going?"

You Should

Have Rung. What...


It Cost A Fortune To Send You To College.

Now You Want To

Work As A Skivvy?

A Hygiene


And It's


It Won't Work.

It Never Works.

I Haven't Seen

You For What...

A Year? And

After 10 Minutes,

I Don't Think

I Want To See You For Another Year.

Oh, Come On, Kate.

It Looks Like

You Could Do With Some Help.

I Heard The Staff

Are Leaving Here

Quicker Than

The Residents.

Mum Told Me.

So, You Two Are

Speaking Again, Then?

Well, Not Really.

I Ring Home, She Talks

About You, Or Herself.

Mostly About You.

I Don't Figure

Largely In The Conversations.

It Would Be Good

For Both Of Us.

Ellie, You're Not

Doing This For Me.

So What's

Really Going On?

Some Friends Are

Planning This Round The World Trip,

And I Really Want

To Go With Them, Kate.

How Many Times Are

You Going To Go Around The World?

Look, I Figured If You

Just Paid Me In Cash...

I Suppose You Want

To Live Here As Well?

Well, You've

Plenty Of Room.

I Gave Up My Flat

So I Wouldn't Have To Waste Money On Rent.

It's The Only Way

I'd Have Enough Money To Go With Them
