but he's expecting you.

That was Pommy Bill.

He's come to help.

Did he hurt you?

No, but he's|been hitting

the roeies again-- the|worst I've ever seen.

Are you|all right?

Perhaps if you stop|struggling, sir.

Have it your way.

You like punching out|little girls, sir?

The junkies like punching up|little girls, do they?

Have you been taking|the phenytoin?


Where is it?

I don't know. I'm busy.

You haven't, have you?

Seizures been bad?


You've got a bloody|chemist's shop here.

The one drug|you really need

you don't|bother with.

I need some|money, Martin.

Missed you badly.

I don't|want that.

Can't you just|be nice to me?

Pick up your things

and let's get|out of here.

You bastard!

I'm going to|f*cking kill you.

I can't stay|with you, Martin.

Come on.

You're the one who|always starts it.

Hey, boys.


The men are here.

The big men|have arrived.

Hey, we need|your muscle.

Rob and Chris|kicked us out.

Three jugs,|Harold.

F*cking Rob|hit me, too.

Stomp him|for us, Davey?

Hey, hey, hey.

Get him out.

I'm not serving any kids--|get him out.

if he doesn't leave,|i'll turn off the beer.



Come on.


Get your mother|to read you a story.

Piss off, Max.

Go home!

Hey, Rollo|says you had

some gooks in here|last week.

What's it to you?

Why were they here?

It's our place.

No, this is|my f*cking place, mate.

Oh, yeah, but you|had gooks here, eh?

Doesn't bother me.

You got a problem

that's your|f*cking problem.

I don't know.

A space monster,|if you ask me.

I surrender,|you motherf*cker.

Gee, look at that jacket.

it's beautiful.

You want that jacket.


Nice jacket.


I hope it|was worth it.

It's bleeding.

Little bit of glass|in it, though.

You want me|to operate?

It's still bleeding.

This is pretty clean.

What is this?

Do you love me?

Do you love me?


Well, you're awake.

Brought my bag up|from downstairs.

I didn't get to salvage much

from the place|where I was living.

Some idiot tore it all up.

These are for tap dancing, see?

But they don't|fit me anymore.

That's a picture|of my mum.

isn't she beautiful?

Everyone says|I look like her.

I'm not saying|I'm good-looking--

I'm not|saying that--

but we do|look alike.

She's dead now.

It was a car accident.

She had her head chopped off.

I think it's good to be able|to talk about these things

without cracking up, you know?


I know she's still|with me somehow.

I think that when I have kids

she'll be one of them--|you know, sort of reincarnated.

When you see the yellow scum|coming up the road

Will you turn the other cheek|just like a gutless toad?

Or will you stand|your sacred ground

inform him of the facts

Tell him he's not welcome here|then give him several smacks?
