- With your coursework.

- If you want.

- What do you have to do?

- Write a bit about my project.

- Doesn't sound too hard.

- Then I've got an exam.

You'll do alright.

Not as good as making babies.

- Get off, Shaun!

- That's if your ma lets me.

Don't be rotten.

Daz, do you need a hand there, mate?

Sod off and make

someone else's life a misery, Shaun.

Love you, too.

Come on, Daz. Hurry up!

I can't. Got no brakes.

Come on, Daz. Hurry up.

- Shaun, slow down!

- Katy!

- It's your mam.

- I can see.

- We can do a runner.

- Scary.

- You were meant to be in an hour ago.

- Mrs Biggs.

I'm coming.

- See you.

- See you.

Do you think she'll marry me?

Even a f***ing dog

wouldn't marry you.

That's not very nice, is it?

Whoa, yeah!

Come on, Daz!

- Do you want one?

- No.

- Did you bring your sample?

- Yeah.

- Lift the blanket up. You'll get cold.

- Alright.

- Keep yourself warm.

- I'm alright.


- Oh, God, smell that nurse.

- Behave yourself.

I want one for breakfast.

- Morning.

- Any chance of a bed bath?

- Sorry, love.

- God, I love this place.

- Have you been feeling sick?

- Yeah.

- Worse than usual?

- Yeah, I suppose.

- Is there blood in the vomit?

- No.

- Aye!

- Well, just a bit.

So am I dead, then?

Well, the cirrhosis

is very advanced.

The liver function is deteriorating

and that would account

for the jaundice and the vomiting.

There's also further kidney damage

and we really need to sort out
