Come on, McLean!

You f***ing mug!

- Come on!

- I ain't done yet.


Crazy for feeling so lonely

Come on, boy. Right here.

Right here.


Why do I let myself


What've you done?

I've wet meself.

You filthy bastard!

My dad is coming back soon.

No, boy!

I'm the guv'nor here.

Your dad is dead!

I'm your stepdad now,

that's the end of it!

Your dad is dead,

shut your crying!

Mum's the guv'nor.

I'm the guv'nor.

A lady grabbed my arm

She said, "You look

a man on the pluck!"

It might cost a tenner,

it might cost a bob!

It depends

on the size of your mug!

Nine, ten. Nine, ten.

Nine, ten.

Tea. Val?

Oh, lovely.

Len, slow down.

Oh, mmm.

Give me your hands.

No, no, no, no.

I'm alright.

We're late

for the rent again, Len.

You said that we wouldn't have

to go into the pot.

Leave it with me, Val.

Lenny, I've made your breakfast.

I'm off, Val.

Lenny, what time

are you going to be home?



- Lenny.

- Hello, my son.

How are you feeling today, boy?

Strong as you like, Carrots,

strong as you like.

Hey, when are you going to

get a proper job, boy, hey?

Done with all that street rugging.

Oh, you will get

your collar felt, you will,

with all that soppy graft.

Well, listen,

the world is changing, boy.

It's not like when we was nippers.

You know,

you got to have an angle

or a bit of cutlery

and you have got to

get into something, boy.

I promise you, boy,

what I do is not technically illegal.

Oh, technically illegal?

You are an armed robber.

No. lam more like a...

More like a saint.

Redistributing wealth.

It's quite spiritual.

Karma, boy.

That'll get steam on the table.

Here you go, Teresa.

You need a couple of

new wheels on there, babe.

Alright boys, how are you?

Come on, come on.

Put 'em up, put 'em up. Right here.

Oh, harder. Oh, harder. Oh!

Hello, hello mate.

Come on, boy.

Have a look at your boat, then.

Look like Godzilla, boy.

I've got character.

Hands like broken melons.

Proper use, boy.

Potentialise yourself.

Alright, good soul, good boy.

Yeah, you have got to

potentialise yourself.

Put them to proper use.

What do you mean, "Proper use"?

I have three gypsy fights

lined up off my cousin Bootnose.

No, listen.

I mean, in the ring, boy.

The ring?

Carrots, I love you.

You are my cousin,

but gloves are for poofs, alright?

- Come on.

- Alright.

Here, Trevor.

Hiya, Lenny.

I heard you been selling

that sh*t around my manor again.

That gospel?

Look, someone's been telling

you rubbish, boy.

Well, if I find out it's true,

I'm coming after you

and I'm gonna hurt you.

- Hurt you!

- OK. OK, Lenny.

And then I'm gonna

feed it to you.

- OK, Lenny.

- F*** off!

Hello, Katie.

Come here, sweetheart.

- Are you alright?

- Yeah.

- You look beautiful, my love.

- Thank you.

Go on, have a good one.

- Hello, Frank.

- Right.

- Lenny.

- Alright.

Oh, have a look at her, Len.

She's golden, isn't she?

She's hovering.

God. She could straighten up


Hello, Treacle, this is Trixie.

This is Sue's girl, Carrots.

Trixie, this is Carrots.

Don't mind him, he is a little bit

highly strung at present,

he's just got out of prison.


You are actually just the man

I've been looking for.

Oh. yeah?

How do you fancy doing

a little favour for me?

That Alan's been giving me

mum agg again.

Seems he won't take no

for an answer.

Keeps banging on the

door come 3:
00 in the morning.

I can see he's got you

all aeriated.

You leave it with me, alright?

I'll sort it out.

Thanks, Len,

that will mean the world to us.

Good girl.

I would drink

your bathwater, I would.

Full of yourself, ain't ya?

I'll empty out later.

- Alright.

- Ta-ta.


As I was walking past St Paul's

A lady grabbed me by the arm

She said,

"You look a man on pluck!"

Oh, morning, Alan.

Speak of the devil.

So, what is this I hear about

you terrorizing Sue

and her little girl Trixie, hmm?

No, Len, I ain't, I swear.

You swear. Well, someone's

telling porkies, Alan.

Is it you or is it her?

I'll drop round.

I mean, it's only when

I've had a drink I swing round there.

Oh, it's only

when you've had a drink?

Well, you're having a drink

right now, aren't you, Alan?

Does that mean you are going

over there again?

Giving her agg?

Have I got to hurt you, Alan?

Have I got to hurt him, Carrots?

I am going to

f***ing hurt you, Alan?

Leave off.

I've just been paid,

I just fancied I'd have a lager.

Oh, that's it then.

Funny thing, Al,

you owe me a couple, didn't ya?

- There you go.

- Thank f*** you bumped into me, Al.

Now, you are going to

go round Sue's

and you are going to

give this to her

and you are going to apologise.

You are going to say you ain't

never going to bother her again.

And then you are going

to come back here

and you are going to tell me

what she said.

F*** off, then.

Go on, Alan, I ain't got

all f***ing day!

What a mug.

- Hello, ladies.

- Hello, Carol.

Oh, it's a lovely sight,

look at that.

You've nicked

one of these before.

- Morning, Len.

- Morning.

We've a couple of them,

haven't we?

The Rozzers ain't catching you in that,

I tell you that, boy.



- Carrots, how are you doing, son?

- Hey!

- Alright, how is Lenny?

- Top of the world.

Good boy.

Stay out of trouble.

- Carrots?

- Leslie!

- Len, boy.

- Hello.

- Les!

- Carrots!
