any other proof of identification?

I know you lost the sh*t.

I know you lost my...

To fill in the same thing again from

what's been filled in before... from time.

It was in the computer.

What we want isn't here.

What we need is...

it's all I've got.

It's not me

who lost your details.

Any of us could do your job.

Tap in some sh*t wrong.

Who processed you?

Easy. 'Nough.

'Nough of us can do that.

Can do wrong, easy.

Who processed you?

What? Who...

When'd you last come in?

I don't know.

Was some white dude

with bad hair.


Let's try someone else.


You wanna come, you don't wanna come.

Make me spend me money.

I wanna come.

Tell your face that then.

You getting your usual?

- Yeah.

There you go.

Uncle to the rescue.

What's up?

I don't wanna... Happy birthday.

You know when... chicken with

seasoned rice and slaw?

And this must be for you,

And are you ladies okay

with your drinks? Yeah.

And you know about our two...


So, how's this work?

How far gone?

Early. How early?

Early, early.

What's mark saying? How long

was you thinking about it?

Did you know from straight?

Like it was just meant to...


Ain't no big...

It's quick now, innit?

You're in, you're out.

Does it hurt? It was all right.

It ain't no little thing, Jax.

It ain't coming out wrong or nothing?

It's all right.

Far as they know.

Ain't gonna do you no damage?

Far as they know.

And you can carry it?

This time.

Far as they know.

I know, I know.

I don't f***in'...

You wanna do it, least be sure.

Least... least be that.

Like you was?

What are you doin'?

Wanna do somethin'?

Gotta go home.

Straight home?

Straight home.


I ain't even goin' there,

so why are they

learning me that?

It ain't even a proper language.

It ain't even

a proper language, Jj...

Not no language

Learn me somethin' where I

wanna go... 'bout German.

Trust me.

Geography's rubbish.

You think everything's

Putting my bag down

of green velvet

Where you been?

hands all over the kitchen things.

dirtiness somewhere else.



Don't bother tellin' me

'cause I know

You ain't goin' school for no good reason.

I don't know.

What in German?

What you learnin' in German?

Like I'm gonna sit down in my

dirty work things and eat.

Bernie says hi.

You're gonna get it up your nose.

Get it up your nose.

What are you doing?

Like that?




I'm gone.

From time.

Jj, don't be late.

First thing you'll notice about the public

is that they're thicker than you thought,

"racister" than you thought

and rougher than you thought.

- Jax, am I lying?

- Don't bring me into your drama, Alex.

- Ain't no drama. I'm training.

- They lettin' you train?

Anybody you get is everybody

what you attract, Alex.

That what it says in your "how

to live your life" books, is it?

- Them thick, racist ones be half his family.

- How they lettin' him train?

When you want proper trainin', yeah,

after all the sh*t he tells you,

- come, yeah?

- Letch.

I'm the standard. Sh*t standard.

Unless you wanna learn how to

lose the people them files.

- How many people they let you train?

- - She trained me.

- Exactly.

- Who's doin' the doors?

This is... Maddy.

Maddy? As in Madeline.

Who's doin' the doors?

Why is he shouting

when he always does them anyway?

Right here.

Given us till 3:
00 to sort it.

- It's gonna take us longer than that.

- What?

I said it's gonna take us longer than that.

They tell me, I tell you.

They pressure me,

I pressure you.

That's what makes

the world go round.

Then you need to go back and tell them

it's gonna take us longer than that.
