No, that's no good.
lt's worse than ever.

Give us a chance, for God's sake.

- Oh, Del, mind my knitting.
- Oh, you silly cow, leave off.

Hey! Who do you think you're talking to?

You never used to speak
to Marge like that

before she come round here,
that cow, you know.

- Shut up, will you?
- Who are you talking to?

You're not too old to get
a smack round the ear. So watch it.

l'm fed up here. Can't do nothing...

Bloody girl.
She thinks she's the cat's whiskers.

She's just like her mother, too bleeding
good for anyone round this street.

And another thing.
Ever since you've known her,

coppers knocking on the door,
neighbours talking about us.

The sooner you get rid of her
the bloody better. All right?

And her father,
you know where he come from.

Bloody Eyetie, he is,
bloody Riccardo Spaghetti.

You know where you'll finish up,
where he is now,

in the bloody nick
ifyou don't watch yourself.

Get rid of her as soon as you can.

Why don't you get a flat or something?

- Where could l get a flat?
- l don't know.

Here, what about your aunt we used
to see in the country?

- Who? Martha?
- Yeah, that's the one.

Oh, yeah.

Got your motorbike, ain't you?
Go down there with your girl.

Must be plenty ofjobs
knocking about down there.

Get a good job down there
and stay there.

- Could do, couldn't l?
- You could.

- You're too young to be going serious.
- Who said anything about serious?

- Well, you seem to.
- lt's not that.

lt's just that there's nowhere to go.
l get sick of it.

No money, nothing to do.
Think l'll get away.

You stick it, Del. You'll be all right.

- Do you want to go in?
- No.

Come with me.

Let's go, hmm?

You go out with that boy,
do you know where you'll finish up?

Yeah, where l want to.

- Where do you want to finish up, then?
- With him.

- Not stuck with you.
- With him?

You want to finish up
with a boy like that?

- Yeah, yeah.
- He'll never be any good to you,

- never amount to anything.
- Well, that's up to me, not you.

- Up to you?
- Yeah.

- You're not even old enough.
- Yes, l am.

You don't even know what
you're talking about.

Oh, go and rot.

Go and rot?
l'll smack your face for you.

Who do you think you're talking to?

l'll tell you what,
you just try going with that boy

and you know where you'll finish up,
don't you?

Well, l'll tell you.

l'll just go and get the law
and they'll deal with you.

- You'll get the law?
- l'll get the law.

- That's ajoke.
- Don't laugh at me

because l'll smack your face for you.

- l don't see you going down there.
- Just don't laugh at me

because l'll just smack your face.

- What's up, son?
- Nothing.

What, has she gone away
and left you, then?


Well, stop looking like
a railway sleeper and eat your food.

Not much to do round here, is there?

- Where did you get an idea like that?
- lt's obvious. There's nowhere to go.

Ah, it's not too bad.

Wish there was somewhere we could go.
Bring her home here or something.

- What, home here?
- Yeah.

- What, all night?
- Well?

- To sleep?
- Yeah.

Why, you dirty little bastard, you.

l didn't mean it.

l wish we could get away from them.

- All right.
- What?

We'll get away.

- Where we going, then?
- Wait till we get there.

lt's not far from here.

Which one is it, Del?

l'm not sure.

There's no one about, is there?

l think it's this one.

Can't be that one.
They ain't got a dog.

What we gonna do now?

Hello, Doris. You have a cup oftea?

God love us. Hello, Del.
What are you doing down here?

- Come to see you.
- Ah, that's good.

- Oh, she's gone away for a few days.

- Long time since we see you.
- Yeah.

Do you know ifshe was meeting him
last night?

- l think she was, yeah.
- She was?

Yeah. l did tell her not to go with him
and we had this terrible row.

She just flew out ofthe house,
you know.

Yeah. How long's she been
going out with him?

- Oh, not very long.
- Was she out with him last week?

Yeah. Yeah, she was because l told her
not to go with him again.

l see.

Well, l don't know, Mrs Richardson.

l mean, this boy is a... You know,
causes a lot oftrouble in this area.

Yeah. Oh, l know.
l know he's a nuisance.

l know he's a terrible kid.

l mean, what l'm worried about is...

l mean, he's the sort of kid that
would take drugs, you know?

And introduce her to it.
That's what l'm worrying about.

Mmm. You don't know if
she has taken any, do you?

No, l don't know.

Well, look, Mrs Richardson, um,
l don't really know what l... You know.

l don't know where
l can find Quant at the moment.

l know where he lives.
l can go round there and see for you.
