So how much do your parents pay?

- I don't know.

- Of course you do.

I don't.

I bet it's worth more than my house.

Ah, I bet it's not.

Look, I'm not posh.

- You're so posh!

- I'm not.

I'm just well-educated.

And all that education,

where's that gonna go?

What about you?

Did you learn anything apart

from your, gymnastics stuff?

Yeah, but...

You don't get it.

I've to get up at 5:00 every morning,

train for two hours...

F*** me!

I couldn't do that.

I need my beauty sleep.

Yeah, well, I fall asleep in school a lot.

- I can't touch that.

- Seriously?

Nope. Can't drink, I can't smoke.

I'm really boring.

- I bought it back in pieces from France.

- Right.

One of these babies can go

right through a man.

- Mark!

- You wanna see it work?

- Not really.

- Yeah, you do.

Uh, you put it down like this,

you hoist this thing up...

Put it back down like that...

You take your arrow...

Just lock it in here...

- And you're good to go.

- All right.

- You wanna go?

- No.

- Are you sure? Are you sure?

- Mark, stop!

- I really don't wanna go.

- You just take it.

- Mark!

- Just take... Ahhh!

F***! Ahhh! F***! I'm sorry.

Ow! Oh, my God!

F***, f***, f***, f***, f***, f***, f***!

- What's going on with your phone?

- Shh! My mum took it.

Why? Why? What's happened?

Come in, I'll explain. Be quiet.

Oh, wow. This place is amazing.

You'd be a natural housebreaker.

Maybe that's what I should do with my life.


- Oh, f***!

- You're such a d*ckhead.

It's fine, it's fine.

It'll pass in a sec.

It doesn't happen as much as it used to.

Happy birthday.


That's really sweet.

Can't believe you haven't

been in here before.

Mmm. Looks like it could do

with a woman's touch.

- Well, I could do with a woman's touch.

- Mark...

I need to talk to you about something.

In a bit.

So, what happened?

My mum was doing the laundry,

and she found a wrap in my pocket.

She's gone absolutely nuts.

Won't even let me out of the house now.

"You've abused our trust.

"What have you become?" Blah, blah, blah...

Why do you look so pleased?

I thought you weren't answering

'cause you didn't want to talk to me.

I thought I'd been dumped.

I must have rang you about 50 times.

Shift was a bloody nightmare.

Hang on. Just a second.

Mark! Mark!

Have you been smoking?

It's just a joss stick.

Look, we're not monsters.

You'll need this to do your homework.

Can I have my phone back, please?

From Kelly?


Look, I know you feel bad

about what happened, but that's...

Give me back my phone!

She stacks shelves in a supermarket.

And that house is a shocking state.

There's rubbish piled up in a mattress

rotting in the garden.

You went to her mum's house?

Look, a mother has a right to be concerned.

Does she give you the drugs?

I gave them to her.

None of this nonsense was going on

before she came on the scene.

- A bridge friend works at the social services...

- Mark...

There's no sign of the bloody dog.

It must have run off

again, jumped the fence.

He won't come for us. Go call him.

Look, the dog will be back by morning,

he always is.

Mark and I were just

discussing his attitude.

We've got to get the dog back.

We can't have him worrying sheep.

I can't believe in

circumstances like these,

with this crisis going on,

you're concerned about sheep.

This is our son...

Your son.

I'll go take a walk and shout for the dog.

Go, I need a minute to get dressed.

I haven't got a social worker.

Just a family care adviser came round

a few times, 'cause of my mum's head.


I'm gonna go. I'll see
