- Congratulations Uncle Francois.

- Thank you.

- Hullo Paul.

- Congratulations Francois.

Stop calling me Uncle.

You're a grown man and I'm not your uncle.

I wanted to ask you.

That story you told 'bout my dad...is it true?

Yes of course...all true

That's how sawyers do business?!

Well, it's amazing!

We don't get wood from

that region any more,

but for many years that was where

we were supplied from.

Well, if you ever need a lawyer

in the near future...

How many more years do you have?

In a year I'll have my Master 2.

You wouldn't want to waste your time

in a place like this one.

Capetown is far more exciting.

I don't know.

I mean...I think I could live here.

Come and dance, Christian.

Sure.

It was really happening, right?

Yes.

Caryl had never seen

a more beautiful wedding.

Jessica was a beautiful

maid-of-honour.

Did you see how Anika and Christian

never left each other?

Not another marriage I hope.

He's nice, isn't he?

Quite good looking and friendly.

He wants to be my lawyer

after he graduates.

He's really great.

When are they back?

Tomorrow or the day after,

probably.

We should invite them

to lunch.

My God, they've come so far...

it's amazing!

When's the last time we did that?

The 15 hour drive to Capetown.

I think Willem's business is doing badly.

Really?

Then it's his fault.

He never took the opportunity

to join up with you.

Things are tough for everyone

just now.

Yes, but they waste

so much money.

Did you see Marika's ring?

It's huge!

Good night.

Did you drink tonight?

No.

Francois, don't lie. The doctor said...

Elena...

I didn't touch a drop.

Alright.

Everyone was impressed, I think.

Yes, I know.

I forgot to get it back.

I'm coming.

Five minutes.

Yes I'm coming. OK, 'bye

Hennie? Sorry. Gotta return.

Has Johan's order gone out?

Yes, great. Thanks.

What's happened?

He didn't even know his name.

He just wanted to pick a fight

with Christian.

He'd seen Christian

in an ad.

I shouldn't have have

hit him though.

You say he started the fight.

Yes, he couldn't do much.

He was a little runt.

He looked like a poof!

I still think he was trying

to hit on Chris.

No really. He felt humiliated.

So he complained.

I don't think

that's why he did it.

You never know with these poofs.

Let's talk about something else

After I hit him the first time...

he just went...

He sounds like a...

Hello, Auntie!

You back alone?

Where were you?

Hello, uncle Willem.

Hullo!

- Grab a plate...it's ready.

It looks good.

Chris, I believe your studies

are nearly finished?

You don't struggle

with the English?

I went to an English school.

In Capetown

everyone speaks English.

- I know

- It's very normal.

When I was at school

my English was so bad!

So Anika, are you next?

Next?

Get married.

Not at all!

- Anything but.

Chris, your mother

says you've been doing

a lot of modelling these days.

Have you seen the ads

'Mr Price' has on TV?

They're running now.

Anyway, Chris is in them.

It's weird to keep seeing

your son on TV.

Wonderful.

Is there a lot of TV stuff

being done in Capetown ?

Oh there is.

I've done like three jobs

in the last two months.

Mostly international adverts.

But law's what I really

want to do.

Peter Stuyvesant blue.

-Peter Stuyvesant. 25 rand.

You found us.

Hullo Henry.

The instructions were very clear.

Thank you very much.

Nice trip?

- Yes it was perfect.

Thirsty?

Beer in the fridge.

Help yourself.

So, cheers!

Good time for a barbecue.

That's what I said

but they're pushed for time.

Me too.

All's well with the emails?

- Yes, very good.

You'll tell me if anything

needs to be changed?

Yes thanks, I will.

You know each other?

No.

This is Brian.

He's already come once.

Don't worry, he's nice.

Brian.

-Francois, my pleasure.

Ah, Gideon.

-Henry.

Can I talk to you?

What's happening?

Wait in the car.

He's okay.

Trust me.

I wouldn't have brought him

if he was from around here...

Gideon, get rid of him.

Are you mad?

You can't bring him here!

I know...

But you know me.

You can trust me.

I'd never do anything

against you.

How long has he known?

He's quite okay,

trust me, really.

He's a friend.

- We aren't crazy!

No crazies...no coloureds.

- Thank you.

Yes. I know.

Go on.

Is there a problem?

If you please!

Henry, I just wanted ...

Stop pushing me!

Why are you doing that?

Okay...I'm leaving.

Sh*t. F***ing cans!

Happens to me a lot.

-Cut myself.

I'm not good

at opening them.

He's left. It's fine.

Shame.

He's no longer welcome.

This isn't the first time.

He won't be back.

Good.

So let's drink.

- Cheers!

A receipt,

or shall I email it to you?

Receipt please.

I always forget to back up my emails.

Modern technology, Mr van Heerden.

Has your daughter's wedding happened?

Went well thanks, without a hitch.

The bride was happy.

Just need a signature.

Thank you.

Have a nice day Mr van Heerden.

You too.

I'm fed up with the maintenance

on this house.

You're the one who wanted

a big house.

The pool has to be done.

It's full of algae.

I'll get onto it.

You always say that.

- I'll do it.

Are the new supplies OK?

- Yes, fine.

Don't worry,

everything's fine.

Anika wants to talk to you

about the festival.

You have any sticking plaster?

-No, why?

I cut myself

and it's bleeding.

Let me see.

- No it's alright.
