Shall I tell you my dream?

I dreamt I was a

beautiful white swan,

and I could fly

anywhere, do anything.

I ate fish and pecked at things

with my beak...

And I had this egg.

A beautiful egg, it was.

And there were noises

coming from inside the shell.

And do you know what

the noises were?

They were...

Now, listen carefully...

They were... children's voices.

And I looked after this egg.

I kept it warm and safe,

until one day there was

a hatching sound.

Oh, my God! Mam!

- Push!

- Push, Vi.

- Come on, girl!

- Ma-a-am!

Oh, God!

It's twins, Vi!

Renounce the Devil and all his works.

I christen you Ronald Kray.

I christen you Reginald Kray.

In the name of the Father,

the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Morning, Fred.

- Anything for us?

- Morning, Mrs. Kray. Nothing today.

Who loves you, eh?

That's right, Mummy loves you,

you little monsters.

Mummy loves you more than anything.

More than all the cakes,

more than all the jewelery,

more than all the

chocolate in the world.

Hello, boys.

Vi, Vi...

I know, I've seen.

- Miracles never cease.

- Vi! Rose!

- We know.

- About time.

Ooh, she's let herself go.

Vi! Rose! May! She's...

Cleanin' her doorstep!

Dirty cow.

I told her, you know?

She had toast between her teeth.

Made me feel sick.

Hey, hey, hey. Come on, you two,

Mummy's trying to talk.

Mum, look!

Don't be frightened,

darling, Mummy's here.

It's all right, my darling.

It's all right.

Open your mouth, darling.

Open your mouth for Mummy.

There's a good boy.

Ain't you got more blankets?

It's freezing here.

I'll be taking him out of here

in a wooden overcoat.

- Mrs. Kray?

- Goosebumps all over.

It's diphtheria, Mrs. Kray.

I could've told you that days ago.

Arctic conditions are

the cure now, are they?

- In the circumstances...

- How old are you?

- Sorry?

- How old?

24... nearly.

23 and three-quarters or something?

- Look, Vi, this is

bloody ridiculous.

- May, get his coat.

I'm taking him home.

- You can't do that!

- Sorry?

I don't think I quite heard you right.

For a moment I thought you said

I can't take my own child home.

- It's against the rules.

- Not my rules.

There's one rule

and that's keeping my son alive.

You've done bugger all.

I know what's best for him.

I can see through you

like one of your bleedin' X-rays.

Okay, Mum, let me have him.

Here y'are, Ron. Come on, Ron.

There's a boy.

I'm taking him out of here

and if you try to stop me...


Don't tempt me, there's a good boy.

Because I will, you know?

God help me, I will.

Men, they know nothing.

Never have done and never will.

I know what Ron needs

and it's not here.

Cheek. Tryin' to stop you leaving!

- He needs Reg.

- You're right, he needs Reg.

They don't know, all

they've got is words.

Well, I've got words too.

Bollocks to the lot of you.

- Everyone all right?

- Yeah, yeah.

You'll have

to move now, then, won't you?


Take your fingers out

of your dad's nose.

I've told you before,

there's germs up there.

There's a million and one places

to put your fingers,

without putting them

up your dad's nose.

But he's asleep.

Good, so don't wake him.

I don't want him under my feet as well.

Mind yourself, my darling.

Like the fairy story?

Oh? What fairy story's that?

Dad's like Snow White.

Asleep after he ate the

apple from the witch.

The harmful poison.

Chance would be a fine thing.

What are you doing now?

Kiss Dad.

See if he wakes up.

Don't be disgusting,

nobody kisses your dad.

Why don't you two

go and see your Aunt Rose, eh?

She's got something for you.
