# Holdin' hands at midnight

'neath a starry sky #

# Nice work if you can get it #

# And you can get it

if you try #

# Strollin' with that one girl,

sighin' sigh after sigh #

# Nice work if you can get it #

# And you can get it

if you try #

# Just imagine someone

waitin' at the cottage door #

# Where two hearts become one #

- # Who could ask

for anything more? #

- Mmm!

That looks good enough to eat.

Oh, thank you.

I wasn't talking about the cake.

Oh, Gordon. You're my cousin.

Never stopped

the Royal Family.

You're a very sick man.

Mm. Hi.

- Hi.

- You're yummy.

Oh, Mum, would you take Grandma

over to the church, please?

Yes. Come on, sweetheart.

So, do you wanna go and

tell Dennis that we're ready?

Sure thing.

How's he doing?

Oh, great. Thrilled.

I'm telling you, he's thrilled.

Dennis, it's Gordon.

Are you ready?

Wow! You look great!

So, are you ready?


- Just...

- OK.

I'm gonna give you a minute

to, uh...

give you a minute.

No, no. I don't want to.

Done want to, ah...


It's time.

Dennis, we have to go.



# Where to promise

to love one... #

Dennis, we're gonna have a baby.



# Who could ask

for anything more? #

Aw, sh*t.



# I'm sorry, sorry, sorry

if you're gettin' me wrong #

# But you're half a world away

with only one sock on #

# Now you're gettin' too much,

I don't want to play along #

# 'Cause all I really wanted

was a radio song #

# What is there to say #

# What is there to say?

# In a world so grey? #

# In a world so grey #

# Why, oh, why, oh, why

are we singing it anyway? #

- Come on!

- # 'Cause you think I had #

- # A wind-up heart #

- Stop!

- # Then you must

have had plastic head #

- Come back!

- # Did you think

I had to play the part? #

- Give me a break!

# When you copied everything

I said? #

- # When the tide of love is out

and the rust begins to show #

- Whoo!

# You're cryin'

in your sleep #

# Scared of your shadow #

- # If you thought

this was forever #

- Ooh!

- Oh!

- # Dear,

I'm keeping you in mind #

Gotcha. Where is it?

Where's what?

You know what I'm talkin' about!

Ooh! Hey! Hey!


All right!

What do you

think this is, huh?

I've never seen those

before in my life.

Yeah, and you're

a fit, running type.

You bastard.


Little sh*t!

There's nothing to see here,



Where's the bra?

What bra?


Come on, fat boy, run!

I'm not fat!

I'm just... I'm unfit.

Go on, then.



Could you let me in, please,

Mr G?

Who the hell are you?

You... Why are we...

It's Dennis Doyle

from downstairs.

Dennis Doyle from downstairs

is dead...

killed by his landlord.

- Do you know why?

- No.

Failure to pay the rent

in a timely fashion.


Hey, Maya.

Listen, can you tell your dad...

I'm in a bit of a hurry?

- Have you got any money?

- Maya, go inside!

And put something on.

Hello. Hello.


Do you know what happened

to that landlord...

after he killed Dennis Doyle

from downstairs?

- No.

- They gave him a medal...

and a nice foot massage.

Hey, Mr Ghoshdashtidar.

Mr Ghoshdashtidar, wait...

Well, how is the old rascal?

I hear it's going to be a party

of special magnificence.

You know Bilbo.

He's got

the whole place in an uproar.

Mm. Ah, well,

that should please him.

Jake, your dad's gonna be here

in a minute.

You ready?


All right,

then keep your secrets.


- # You give me tone #

- Hey.

# I'll like that #

Hey, how is it goin'?

- Oh, yeah.

- # All the chrome #

# Well, I'll like that #
