Hello. Have you got a bathroom?

Yeah, it's just out the back.

I'd like a burger and a coffee.

Get what you like.

You look weird.


Oh, for f*ck's...

Jesus! Fuckin' hell.

Why do you have to

fuckin' do that?

Yeah, go and wash your face.

And get in the car, right?


Yeah, that one.

Stay there.

Righto. We're off.

What's that say?

It says, "Koori rulz.

The only bet is on black".

Well, that's yours.

Who are you fighting?


They steal people,

especially from parks.

I don't want to sleep here.

So, what do they look like,

these aliens?

Like us, but...

...skinny, and they've got one eye

and they come from the stars.

It's a clear night. It's beautiful.

Do you know how to reckon dead south

by the Southern Cross?




- What about those?

- Mm.

Oh, you like them, do you?

No, those are plastic, mate.



Whatever you do, don't say

nothin' about Max, understand?




Oh, Chook!

Hey! Look at you!

Oh, he's alright. He won't bite.

Hello. What's your name?

Come in.

We're on our way to Adelaide

and, uh, we thought you might

be good for breakfast.

How'd you get my address?

Old Max.

How is the old darling?

Oh, he's fine.

- You can't stay.

- No, no.

No, we don't want to.

Hey, the boy's hungry.

Fuckin' get out of it.

You had enough?

Full as a goog.

Come here.

What's this on you?

Um, why don't you go outside

and play with the mutt, yeah,

while me and Maryanne have a chat.

He'll play with that ball all day.

Come on, Mr Right. Attaboy!

Mr Right!

So, what's going on this time?

What... can't a man do

a bit of travelling?

No, I thought I'd show Chook

a bit of the country.

You know, he needs to learn

a thing or two.

He needs school and a good home.


What... like this one?

It's a start.

Must be costing.

Only for materials.

Oh, yeah.

What... you got yourself a handyman?

What I've got is a regular job.

You should try it.

You're nesting, aren't ya?


Sort of... preparing for a brood.

What if I am?

Yeah, but does the handyman know

what he's in for?


Keen as.

Did you tell him how you paid

your way through teacher's college?

Yeah. He loves it.

F*ck, I missed you.

- Bullshit.

- No, honest.

I haven't looked at another woman

since you left.

Just fucked a few?


No, you've got a nice set-up here.

We might just have to move in.

Chooky would love that.


You're not gonna f*ck up

my life again.

No, it's alright.

But how about one last one for old

time's sake and then we'll be off?

Promise you'll leave?

Yeah, yeah. Scout's honour.

What's up?


What you up to?


- Are you Dad's girlfriend again?

- No.

Can I stay with you?

You're going to Adelaide,

aren't you?

You'll like Adelaide.

What you been up to?

Tell me about

when you first met Dad.

You know that story.

Come on.



It was in jail.


I was teaching maths.

And your dad was in my class.

And, um, when he got out,

we hooked up

and... I met you...

...which was the best bit.

And then we all lobbed on Max.

We had a lot of fun

there for a while, remember?


And then, um... know the rest.

Dad reckons he really didn't mean

to hit you. He just lost his temper.

Does he hit you?

You know there are lots of people

who love you.

Me, for one...

...and Max.

And Dad?

And Dad.

How you going

with your maths, anyway?

Are you still the world's best

number rememberer?


Hey, do you remember

my old Sigma's rego number?

I hated that car.

What about...

It's funny,

the numbers you remember.
