# I would like to leave this city # This old town don’t smell too pretty and # I can feel the warning signs # Running around my mind # So what do you say? # You can’t give me the dreams that are mine anyway # You’re half the world away # Half the world away # Half the world away # (Clattering) (Doorbell rings) Don’t worry about it, Jim.
I’ll get it.
(Door opens and slams) (Dave) All right? (Denise) Hiya, Mam.
– I can’t see any wounds.
– (Denise) Mam? What’s wrong? – Mam? – Ooh! Ooh! Lively chap.
– All right, Jim? – Oh, hiya, Dave.
(Woman) He’s not really underweight.
He’s not dehydrated.
He was lucky he What’s up with Barbara? She looks a bit upset.
Denise went in t’kitchen wi’ her.
Oh, there’s nothing wrong with her.
It’s the menopause.
The bloody change.
You know what? – I’m up to there with it.
I’m just his bloody skivvy.
It was worse when your nana was staying.
I’d come home from work and that sink’d be full of pots, they’d be fighting.
I just wanted to get my coat on and go somewhere.
And he is just so lazy.
Well, he hasn’t got any hobbies.
I try and think of things for him to do.
He does the crossword in the paper so I bought him a puzzler the other day.
And he just went mad.
He said I’d wasted £1.
70 and he wouldn’t speak to me for the rest of the night.
It’s not a life, this, it’s just a bloody existence.
– He’s always got food in his beard.
– Well, he never has a wash! How long does it last, this change malarkey? Don’t know.
A few years, innit? – Bloody hell.
The only time he has a wash is when he goes to the doctor’s.
He just sits there, mouthing off in that chair.
Another time I came in, your nana’s face was like thunder.
He wouldn’t put her drops in.
He is just so selfish.
He’s got no confidence.
Jim’s knocked it all out of him, calling him “a lanky streak of piss” all the time.
Well Well, he has got a point there.
Has your mum had her change yet? – (Rolf Harris) She was 9-year-old Jade.
– I dunno.
She’s not said nowt.
(Rolf Harris) Tests showed Splodge had two problems.
Most of the time, I put up with it while you two were growing up.
– Oh – I don’t know why I’m here, Denise.
Oh, Mam Oh You could come and live with us.
– No, you could.
– Oh, Denise.
And when the baby’s born, I’m gonna be rushed off me feet.
– (Sobs) – Eh? (Rolf) As well as having bladder stones Tell you what, Dave, you should have seen her before.
– She’s gone too far this time.
– Why? Bang.
She just switched the telly off.
There’s no need for that.
That’s what I mean.
– Aaah – (Sobs) Ah (Denise tuts) – Do you like me new top? – (Sobbing) Oh! Oh! I’m not one of them husbands that goes out every night.
Admittedly I would be if I could afford it.
I have two nights and one afternoon a week and it’s still not good enough.
I don’t want to get involved, Jim.
– She does work hard, though.
– Hard, my arse.
A couple of hours in the bloody bakery.
Mmm I don’t want to get involved.
It’s nowt to do with me.
(Sniffs) Ah The trouble with me is I’m too easy-bloody-going.
She walks all over me.
The days she works it’s half seven, quarter to eight before my tea’s ready.
But I don’t say nothing.
I just get on with it.
(Sniffs) He’s got no conversation about him at all.
Do you know, he absolutely hated work.
I always thought that when he gave it up, I’d see a lovely side of Jim that I’d never seen before.
– There isn’t one.
You know, the doctor said about this HRT thing.
He said, “Have a little think “and go and discuss it with your husband.
” All Jim could say was, “That HRT’s horse’s piss.
” And that, “Them doctors are raking it in.
” And he was taken out of the oxygen tent.
It was a really tense time.
Everyone was willing Sammy to pull through.
They gave him injections of the antidote every 12 hours.
And by the end of the weekend, it was good news.
Sammy’s blood had started to clot again.
What have you said to me mam? Why do you always have to upset her? – What? – You’re horrible to her.
You’re always horrible to her.
And you’re horrible to Nana ar all.
(Jim) Bloody hell, what have I done now? You never say anything nice to her.
You never offer to take her anywhere.
That’s the bloody menopause, that.
Anyway, you’re bloody lazier than me.
I bet you haven’t cooked him a meal since you’ve been married.
– Has she, Dave? – I have, haven’t I, Dave? – Not a meal.
– Oh, shut it, you! Anyway, this is nothing to do with us.
This is about you.
It’s about you and your bloody mother! She’s poisoned you against me.
You’re always on her bloody side.
You’re as thick as bloody thieves.
Get your nana round and the whole bloody coven can have a go at me.
Dave, you’ve made a hell of a mistake marrying into this lot.
– You don’t deserve her, you.
– She doesn’t bloody deserve bloody me! – (Dave chuckles) – Dave! Why do you always take his side? Well, it’s your mam’s menopause, innit? – Correct, Dave.
– It’s not her menopause.
It’s the way he treats her.
He’s all right.
Leave him alone.
Dave, will you keep your big fat nose out? It’s nothing to do with you.
It’s not your family.
You’ve brought me in on this argument.
It’s nothing to do with me.
What about you having a pop at your dad? And you’re never off your arse, are yer? Correct, David.
I’m pregnant, and I’m carrying your child about, thank you very much.
What do you mean, you’re pregnant and you’re carrying my child about? Anyone’d think you’re the only woman ever to be pregnant.
It’s only the size of a bloody orange.
Well, that’s as much as you know.
It’s the size of a grapefruit, thank you, Dave.
– Grapefruit, my arse.
– Correct, Jim.
Anyway, how come we never go round to my mam and dad’s? I’ll tell you why, Dave.
Cos they sit on their arses and watch telly all night.
And it’s boring.
Anyway, you go round twice a week as it is.
That’s to take me washing round and pick it up again.
You know that.
Oh, well, well, well.
How come we’ve been married for ages and your mum’s never offered to do my washing? You’ve got a washing machine.
You should be doing my washing.
Cost me 280 notes, that.
– How much? – 280 bloody notes.
She’s never had a single thing in it.
– Well, you try being pregnant, right? – And what? And nothing.
You’re bone bloody idle.
I am preparing myself for motherhood.
– Motherhood, my arse.
– Correct, Dave.
Thank you, James.
– (Squawking) – (Man) It’s a she, actually.
There’s no obvious injuries.
I’m gonna give some rehydration Who’s, erm – Who’s gonna wash the baby’s things? – Will you stop shit-stirring it, Dad? – It’s nothing to do with you.
– (Footsteps) (Door slams) – (Squawking) – (Man) Oh, be brave! That’s it.
(Rolf Harris) To a layman, that looks really scary.
(Gasps) It’s me mam.
She’s got her coat on.
Dad, will you go after her? Me? Why don’t you go after her? I’m pregnant.
Dave, you go after her.
I’m watching this.
She’s only gone to Mary’s to have a bloody go at me from round there.
Anyway, Mary’s the only one who doesn’t know I’m a big, fat, lazy arse.
She’s not gone to Mary’s.
(Gasps) I wonder where she’s going.
It’s all your fault.
She’s on the change.
She might walk out in front of a lorry and get run over.
Well, we can always put a claim in.
(Laughs) Poor Mam.
I’ve never seen her so upset.
You’re horrible, you.
– You’ve broken our home up.
– (Jim) It’s not even your bloody home.
Mam said Antony stormed out, now she’s gone, I’ll be next.
You’re too bloody lazy to storm off anywhere, you.
No, you’re the lazy one.
You’re the bloody lazy one.
Get lost! You’re way lazier than me.
– My arse.
– No, you are.
– She is.
– He is.

If she decides to answer the next question and gets it wrong, she goes home with nothing.
If she gets it right, she wins £1,000 and that’s hers to keep.
– Then just five questions to £32,000 – Ta.
– If she gets a million, I propose.
She’s still got three lifelines to use.
