Come on! Get your f***ing arses up that hill

or I'll make your f***ing eyes bleed!

Come on, get them f***ing legs up!

Are you taking the piss out of me, soldier?

Then say it! Come on.

The last man's going to have to do this all f***ing again.

Keep it going. Push it.

Keep going. Come on!

Private Jackson, you should be munching f***ing carpet for a living

instead of being a soldier! Come on!

I tell you, the more beer I have, the better you look to me.

Especially being stuck here.

Oh, there's a lot of love coming from here, isn't there?

Can you feel it?

I wondered why you were always together. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Aye, you were the only men in bloody Basra.

How long have we been here? About an hour.

It's been an hour and ten minutes exactly.

Load of SHITE!

- Hey, let's get some beers.

- Oh, leave her be, man.

Hiya, love. Can we get, probably, 12 beers?

I don't have any more beers. You drank them all.

- What? Already?

- Hey, hey, hey!

Give that back.

F***ing leave her be, man. Give her it back.


Have you got...?

Paul, do you want a Bacardi and Coke or something, sweetheart?

F*** off.

Eh? Excuse me, pet. Sorry, sorry.

What's up with you, crabby?


Got a face on you like a smacked arse.

Just tired. Want to get home.

What the f*** is going on with this train?

Signal failure or something.

Here, get that down you.

Oh, f***ing hell.


Do you want to go for a pint before we go home?

- No, I can't.

- Come on, one. Say goodbye properly.

- Why, you going to miss me, like?

- F*** off!

No. I've gotta get back.


Oh, hang on.

CHEERING That us moving, is it?

'Ey, man!

You all right, babe? Waiting for Mummy to come?


- This is surreal, like.

- Mmm.

Good to be back.

F***ing freezing, though.

It is, isn't it?

CHEERING Oh, no way, man.

- Is that your house?

- No way. No.

- Flag outside.

This is it.

Yeah. Listen, erm, thanks.

Thanks? What for?

You know.

Piss off. Come here.

- You take care, right?

- Yeah.

- Let me buy you that pint.

- Oh, you're damn right.

I'll speak to you soon.

Come here, you!

- I am going to kill you for this later.

- You're gorgeous.

Oh, give over, I'm rough as!

Look who's here!


Little one! Hey, look at you.

Come here and give us a hug, pet.



Hiya, Dad.

I've been travelling for ages.

All right, we're not making a porno!

God. It's completely different in here!

- Oh, you look f***ing amazing with that tan, darling.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

- I've been travelling for, like, 12 hours.

Hey, there's loads of people downstairs.

- F*** 'em.

- You're on heat, mister.

Stop, hey.

Come on, me mam's downstairs.

Can I come in, little one?

Look at you.

Look how much you've grown.

Hey, come here and give us a hug, yeah?

I'll show you me medal, if you like.

Come on. I've travelled a long, long way to see you.

Aren't you pleased to see me?

I like your outfit.

Are you trying to be like Mam?

Come off it, Cass, speak to me.


Come on, give order, please.

Quiet, please. Come on, come on.

Bloody hell, it's like the wash house in here.


Unaccustomed as I am, and all that bollocks...

but I felt today, such a momentous coco...

occasion... Caucasian, occasion!

..that I've gotta say a few words.

This is a proud day for all of us.

That girl there, the mother of my son's child, has come

back from some hellish place to this perfect home in one perfect piece.
