Sonographer:
Is that too cold?

Kate:
No it's fine.

Sonographer:

Tell me if I press too hard.

- Kate:
Is that...?

- Sonographer:
Yes.

- Justin:
Is that the head?

- Sonographer:
Mm-hmm.

Sonographer:

Come on sweetie, turn around.

Kate:
Stubborn like its mother.

Justin:
How's the heartbeat?

- Sonographer:
It's 160.

- Justin:
Is that okay?

Sonographer:
Anything between

150 and 170 is fine.

Kate:
Can we see the face?

Sonographer:
We could

if the baby would be

a little more cooperative.

Sonographer:
Come on, baby.

Come on, baby.

There.

Are the new owners here?

Mover:
We were given keys.

Justin:
Thank god

there's someone at last.

Are you happy?

About downstairs?

No. Not about downstairs.

What do you say?

Hmm?

Woman:

This is Tessa muir,

I'm afraid I'm not available

to speak to you at the moment.

Do leave a message.

Hi, mom, it's me.

We had the scan yesterday,

and everything's fine.

So need to worry.

Um...

Okay, I'll speak to you soon.

Bye.

Try the spring rolls,

they're delicious.

- Abi:
Are they good?

- We have new neighbors,

by the way.

Abi:
Oh my god!

In the dead man's flat?

The dead man had a name, abi.

- Abi:
Sorry.

- He was lovely.

I used to water

his plants for him.

Mark:
You still got his key?

Indhu:
Have you met

the new ones?

They haven't arrived yet.

He's English, and she's...

I don't know, something else.

Abi:
What do you mean,

she's "something else"?

She's foreign.

The man who did the garden

thought she sounded Swedish.

Abi:

Have they cleared the jungle?

Yeah, it's great.

I mean, it's...

- Kate:
It's a bit...

- A bit what?

She's being all v and a

about it.

Kate:
It's not that it's ugly.

It's just...

...really determined to be

a garden.

Mark:
Oh, you snob!

I'm just saying!

Justin:
I'm giving up next week.

Kate:
You don't need to give up.

Justin:
Well, I am.

Kate:
I'm not like abi. I don't

enjoy ordering you around.

- Justin:
I know.

- Maybe you'd rather I did.

Maybe you need

a little instruction.

Justin:

Why do you think I left her?

Kate:
She does slightly treat me

like a patient.

Theresa:

Yes, it should have arrived.

Yes. Yellow.

Yes, please do.

Hi.

Hi. I saw you in the garden.

I'm from upstairs.

Oh my god!

I know.

How many weeks?

- Eighteen.

- Twenty-one.

You must have just arrived.

Yeah. Last night.

- I'm Theresa.

- Kate.

Would you like an herbal tea?

- Um, I was just going out.

- Oh. Me too.

Swimming.

You want to come?

It's a private club,

but I can take a guest.

I really should do some chores.

Please come.

I'm so happy you came.

Swimming's so bloody boring

on one's own.

- Don't you like it?

- Not really to be honest.

But it's very good

for pregnancy.

We read it in a magazine.

Is yours kicking?

I don't think so.

I can always feel him

after swimming.

Him?

He's going to be called Peter.

After Jon's father.

But you mustn't say I said.

I'm not supposed to tell anyone.

What are you looking at?

I'm sorry.

I'm always watching people.

I suppose it's my job.

You're happier on the outside,

looking in.

Probably.

Do you work?

Me?

I never want to work again.

Oh, shit! I have to go.

I'm meeting Jon for lunch.

Sure.

Thanks for knocking.

I didn't.

No, that's right.

You didn't, did you?

Let's do this again, huh?

Phil:
We found this killer image

for the cover.

What do you think?

Sorry. Hold on.

- Hey, is everything okay?

- Yeah, it's fine.

- Justin:
Okay.

- I just wanted to call you.

Good.

Good.

Sorry, just hold on one second.

Is she definitely ugandan?

Justin:
Well, she either is

or she isn't, Phil.
