-Tom, what's happening?

-You all right, Danny?

Yo, don't say I never do nothing for ya.

Oh, sweet.

-Who's that?

-I didn't say it weren't secondhand.

[woman] This morning,

we're gonna go over your revision sheets

and take a look at exam prep.

If we don't hit the 60 percent pass rate,

we're gonna be spending a lot more time

together in queue at the job center.

So, Tom, how did you get on

with the exercises?




-[students] What?

Okay, Eileen, what about you?

Yeah, it was all right.

One thing I didn't under...

Man, it's painful watching you sometimes.



Everyone knows you've fancied

Lucy Walker since forever.

Just man up and get it done, all right?

Ooh, here she comes. This could be

your big chance to impress her.

So, make sure you say something

really, really cool.

-Go away, please.



-Uh, did you get the science revision?


-No, I mean, like, did you get it?

-Oh, did I get it? Yeah, I think so.


Look at Tommy boy.

He's getting moist just talking to a girl.

-Still a d*ckhead, Eugene?

-What are you looking at?

F*** off.

So, anyway, um, the science revision.

I, uh, was wondering if you could help me

'cause I tried looking at it,

and then I remembered I haven't paid

attention in science since, like, 2011.


I'll see what I can do.

I mean, I can only work with what I got.

You're not exactly a model student.

-Are you questioning my academic prowess?

-I am, yeah.


All right, well, I'm seeing Charlie

after school, but come by later, yeah?


-Charlie Gibbs or Charlie Penford?

-Uh, Charlie Gibbs. As in Charlotte?

I haven't seen Charlie Penford in months.

Right, of course. I mean,

it's none of my business, obviously.

I'll see you later then.

See you, Lucy, later--

See you later, Lucy.

[blows landing, man grunting]

What are you so fidgety about?

If someone said

for you to come around later,

what time would you say that was?

-Later than what?

-Than earlier.

Like, eight, do you think, maybe?

Well, that's certainly later on

than earlier.

-What you writing?

-A romance novel.

-They're all romance novels.

-Yes, they are.

Would you like to hear some?

I don't think so.

[clears throat]


-Oh, Nan.

"...closed the door behind him

and undid the buttons of his shirt.

He unbuckled his belt

and released his engorged--"

Oh, Jesus. I'm going.

Emergency. Which service?


[monitor beeping]

[phone ringing in distance]


[phone ringing in distance]

This is your phone.

Did it miss all the important bits?

Well, it's a brain,

so we tend to think of all of it

as quite important.

-But it will be okay?

-We hope so.

Fragments here and here

missed the temporal lobe

and the auditory complex by milli--

Is my friend in here?

Lucy's gone home, love.

She was discharged about a week ago.

You've been out for nearly ten days, Tom.

At the moment,

nothing in there is moving around

in any way that worries us.

-You were very lucky.

-Will there be, like, side effects?

We're gonna keep an eye on you,

but if anything unusual happens,

I want you to let me know straightaway.

-Unusual, like, how?

-Just unusual.

I should've done something.

You did the only thing you could, love.

-Have you seen her?


It'll take a while, Tom.

Is there something about my grandson

you find particularly fascinating?

-No, no, no.

-Well, stop bloody staring at him, then.

Looks like he's been in the wars.

Well, thank you

for your considered medical opinion.

Maybe, next time, I'll get the doctor

to drive us and you to do the operation.

-How about that?

-Calm down, love.

It's only an observation.


So, how you feeling?

-How's the head?

-It's all right.

-How's it look?

-Already, it looks better.

We need to even this up a bit.

You know, if you feel up to it,

maybe later you should go to Lucy.

-No, she's not gonna want to see me.

-Of course, she is.

I ran away, Nan.


Anyone could be forgiven

for running out of that flat, Tom.

But someone who kept running afterwards

when she really needed them?

That would be a coward.

Joe Barton

Joe Linus Barton (born September 15, 1949) is a Republican politician representing Texas's 6th congressional district (map) in the U.S. House of Representatives since 1985, and a member of the Tea Party Caucus. The district includes Arlington, part of Fort Worth, and several small towns and rural areas south of the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex. In 2014, Barton became the longest-serving member of the Texas congressional delegation.Barton describes himself as "a constant defender of conservative ideals and values". He advocates for deregulation of the electricity and natural gas industries, and serves as vice-chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committees. He is skeptical that manmade carbon emissions have contributed to global warming, is a proponent of the use of fossil fuels, voted in favor of the May 2017 GOP plan to replace Obamacare, supports President Donald Trump's ban on immigration from certain predominantly Muslim nations, and supports the death penalty for persons caught spying. Barton led a successful effort to repeal the oil export ban in the House in 2017. His environmental record of defending industries against tighter pollution controls earned him the nickname "Smokey Joe."Barton came to national prominence after telling a citizen at a town hall meeting to "shut up." He came to national attention again when nude selfie photos of him – taken from video he had taken of himself masturbating, that he had shared with women – surfaced online in 2017, along with messages with sexual overtones that he had sent to a female constituent while he was married. In November 2017, Barton announced that he will retire from Congress at the end of his current term, and will not seek re-election in 2018. more…
