(WOMAN WAILING LOUDLY)

(CONTINUES WAILING)

(QUIETLY) Mum? Mum?

Mum?

Mum?

Mum?

Mum?

Mum? Mum?

Mum?

You all right?

I was just thinking about Poppy.

She was me only friend.

Aw, Mum. I'm your friend.

You're not a friend.

You're just a relative.

I'm 34 years old!

And I've found someone who likes me,

and I like him,

and I'm going on holiday with him.

You're running away

from your... guilt!

Don't do that with Poppy's lead, Mum.

CAROL:

You've always had lovely hair, Tina.

TINA:
It is quite thick, isn't it?

CAROL:
Yes.

I've always admired your hair

being thick, because mine's so thin.

I think you might have a few split ends.

Better watch that.

- Any more bags you want taking?

- TINA:
Well,

- I might want a couple more towels.

- CHRIS:
No, not in there.

CHRIS:
You didn't tell me

your mum was an artist.

TINA:
What?

Look at these.

(WHISPERS) Chris, don't go in there.

- (MUMBLES) Why not?

- Come out. Chris.

What's going on?

CHRIS:
I'm just admiring

your artwork, Carol. It's fantastic.

I don't want anyone in my room.

Chris was just saying how talented

he thinks you are, Mum.

CAROL:
It's my private sanctum.

I don't want anybody looking.

Well, no one's looking

in your sanctum, Mum.

So I'll just... Shall I leave you, then,

to look at your brushes?

I'll just sit for a few minutes, yes.

- Okay.

- I could do with a cup of tea.

- I'll get you one, Mum.

- That'd be nice.

- I'm shutting the door now.

- That's okay.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

Okay, Mum, bye.

Bye.

- All right?

- Yeah.

Good.

(BOTH CHUCKLING)

- I've always wanted a boy in my bed.

- Come on.

- Have you?

- Yeah. I was never allowed.

I've always wanted to be in this bed.

- This is Jonty.

- Oh, he's putting me off.

(TINA LAUGHING)

- CHRIS:
I like this room.

- Do you?

- Mmm.

- I hate it.

Why?

TINA:
Well, I like the bits.

CHRIS:
Makes me think of you

when you were a kid.

TINA:
At the same time, if it was

all destroyed, I'd be quite happy.

CHRIS:
So what were you like

when you were a little kid, then?

TINA:
Unhappy.

CHRIS:
You didn't like school?

- (TINA EXHALES)

- I know, nor me.

What were you like at school, Chris?

I wasn't like anything.

I was, like, invisible.

TINA:
What about you being ginger?

CHRIS:
Weli, that's a problem, yeah.

TINA:
That's not invisible, is it?

CHRIS:
No, but I wanted to be.

Oh, I don't think it's safe

going off with him.

It is safe!

I know about all kinds of people who've

had very bad experiences in caravans.

Like who?

Well, Louise.

She fell out of it, didn't she?

Oh, I don't know. I mean, you've gone

far too fast with him far too soon.

You hardly know him.

TINA:
You look like you...

you don't trust him.

CAROL:
I don't.

TINA:
Just let him get on with it.

CAROL:
Well, I'd like to know

what he's getting on with.

- Well, he's packing.

- How much of our stuff has he got?

Mum, he hasn't got any of your stuff.

Don't be silly.

CHRIS:
All right, uh, toothbrush?

TINA:
Yeah.

- And a sponge?

- Yeah.

- Umbrella?

- Yes.

- Uh, wash bag?

- Yes.

- What's that? What's that?

- Potpourri.

And what are you bringing that for?

We don't need potpourri.

I don't think I could cope

without potpourri, Chris.

You're gonna have a woman's touch

on this holiday, Chris.

Yeah, that's what I'm hoping.

(CHUCKLES) Oh, Chris.

Don't look at my bum.

- I'm not looking at your bum.

- You are.

- Just son' of loomed into my vision.

- (TINA LAUGHING)

(CLATTERING)

Milady.

- Bye, Mum.

- You'll be back.

I will, Mum, in a week.

Okay, well, we'll see you then, Carol.

I'll bring her back safe,
