Catch Me Daddy (2014) Script

(Young man) 'A great bird landed here.

'Its songs drew men out of rock.

'Living men out of bog and heather.

'Its song put a light in the valleys and harness on the long moors.

'Its song brought a Crystal from space and set it in men's heads.

'The bird died.

'Its giant bones blackened and became a mystery.

'The Crystal in men's heads blackened and fell to pieces.

'The valleys went out. The moorland broke loose.

(Girl) My dad said whoever invented Black Forest gateau was a genius.

(Boy) Black Forest gateau? (Girl) Yeah. Tastes well good.

(Boy) That's only cos Pakis can't make good desserts.

(Girl) Shut up. Course they can.

I remember when me and my brother used to go to my dad's restaurant after school and we always used to have Black Forest gateau.

Dad always used to call me Chum Chum as well.

(Boy, laughing) Chum Chum? (Girl) Yeah.

(Boy) What did he call you Chum Chum for?

(Girl) There's this pink little dumpling. (He laughs)

Turns into a knife. I go fucking on one. I grab this fucking knife, yeah.

As soon as I grab this knife, these fucking monkeys spin round.

Start fucking clapping. (Laughs)

Start clapping that I chased you off. Fucking weird dream.

(Driver) Ah, Jesus.

You're my baby sister.

When you went to Pakistan, you left me.

Do you know how it feels to be in between you and Dad all the time?

Any little thing, I have to deal with it!

He threatened to kill me. Do you blame him?

Look what you've done. (Phone vibrates)

Fucking living like a shizzer.

Do you think he can show his face anywhere?

Oh, no, no.

You know we're fucked now.

(Sobs) Aaron. Laila, you're OK. OK? Shh.

Shh, you're OK. We have to go back.

Shh. Here, listen. We need to go back.

We can't go back, right? We can't go back. Shush. Shh.

We need to ring an ambulance.

If you ring an ambulance, it's gonna bring 5-0 and who will they blame?

You. You, Laila.

Do you trust me? Do you trust me? Yeah.

We have to go. We have to go now. We have to go. Right?

We have to get a bus and we have to get out of town.

We have to go get a bus.

Come on. Come on, come on.

We could just... We could stay there.

Fucking hell.

It's Craig. Leave a message.

(Aaron) Craig, listen, mate. I need help, alright?

(Phone rings)

Hello?

You two from round here, then? (Aaron) No, mate.

(Driver) Apparently it went off in that club Acapulco there tonight.

Did it? Yeah. It went off.

Some fucking bald fucker got his head kicked in.

Oh, I'm fucking knackered, I am.

I don't want to be too philosophical and all that but...

You know, you're working, know what I mean? You're dealing with people, and then at home, you know what I mean, I'm dealing with the missus, dealing with your folks, dealing with the kids.

They're annoying, you know what I mean? They're so annoying.

That's what my kids are. But I love 'em to bits, I'll be honest with you.

I wouldn't change them for the world, but, you know, come mealtimes, it's like, "Eat your dinner. Eat your dinner. Eat your dinner."

And they just look at you. And you go, "What the f... What are you looking at?

"Just eat your dinner.

"I don't want you to look at me, I just want you to eat your dinner."

You know... Basically, I do everything for my family, do you understand?

And there's no... There's nothing about me no more, you understand?

Your life's become all about everybody else.

And you've been doing it so long, know what I mean?

People say to me, "What do you do?" and all that.

I go, "To be honest with you, I don't even know what the fuck I do."

You just do what you do, innit?

So are you two on a mission, yeah?

No.

No?


(Aaron) Laila, what's he saying? (Driver) Uh?

What are you saying, pal? Oh, nothing, my friend, just talking.

Just shut the fuck up and drive the car, eh?

(Driver) No problem, man, no problem.


Where are you going? (Driver) I'm just going this way.

No. Listen, go back on that other road. Get back on the other road.

Mate, this is the way we go, honest. Turn back and go on the other road.

Just turn around here, mate. Give me a sec, yeah?

You know what? Just pull in, mate. I will do. Just give me a second.

Fucking pull in! (Laila) Aaron!

Do what I'm fucking telling you! Pull in!

(Driver) Fuck! (Laila) Leave him!

(Aaron) Pull in!

Laila, get out the fucking motor.

Come here, you fucking... (Yells)

(Aaron) The fuck!

(Groans)

(Aaron coughs)

(Engine revs)

(Aaron coughs)

(Aaron groans)

(Coughs)

Fucking... (Indistinct)

You fuckers!

(Laila) Are you OK? Fuck! Do I fucking look OK?

Look at my fucking eyes!

What the fuck were you saying to him in the taxi?

Nothing. What the fuck were you saying to him?

Nothing.

Bullshit.

(Aaron grunts)

We'll fucking move. Go higher. Get a fucking signal.

Hurry up!

(Wind blows)

(Mutters)

Craig. Thank fuck. Listen. '(Indistinct voice)'

Listen, mate, I'm in a fucking rattle. Turn that down.

Go somewhere you can fucking hear me.

I'm in a fucking rattle. This is serious.

(Barry) Where the fuck are they?


(Footsteps)

(Aaron) Laila.

(Aaron) Come on.

Laila. Move. Come on. Come on.

(Aaron) Come on. Come on. Come on.

(Spits) Fuck it.


What happened, then?

Give me a light.


Give me some cowie.

I don't have any cowie.

I know you've been fucking sniffing. Give me some cowie.

If I had some, I would give you some. I don't fucking have any.

Listen, give me some fucking cowie now.

Fucking lying prick.

(Laila sobs)

(They both sob)

It's gonna be OK.


Here, wait.

(Screams)

(Shoby) Shut the fuck up.

(Laila screams hysterically)

Shut the fuck up, you daft slut!

Shut the fuck up.

(Laila) No!

(She continues to scream and cry)

Get off the girl!

Get off! (Gunshot)

(Barry) What the fuck are you doing, Tony? Put the cracker in the car.

(Tony) Laila, Laila. Come here. Come here.

What the fuck are you doing, Tony? (Gunshot)

Get in the car.

(Car engine starts)

(Laila breathes heavily)


(Tyres screech)


(Vehicle approaches)

(Engine starts)

(Laila hyperventilates)

(Laila) Why...?

Why did they...?

Why...? Breathe. Breathe slowly.

(Laila coughs)

Take this. Take this!

Fuck's sake, take it. It's just Valium.

Fuck.

(Brakes squeal)

(Car stops)

Come here. Take it. It's Valium. Just take it.

It'll help you.

Look, I'll take one. I'll take one.

(Laila coughs)

Here's another one. Take it.

OK? Good girl.

I'm Tony.

OK?


Tony, you little prick, what the fuck do you think you're doing?

Bring the fucking bird back to us. Ring me as soon as you get this.

(Shoby) Where's your dickhead mate gone?

You are shit to me.

I tell you one thing, it better get fucking settled, Barry.

Go to his kid.

(Line rings)

(Phone rings)


'Lift going up.'

(Knocks at door)

Tony, man. What's happening? Barney. Hey.

Come on.

Alright. Alright.

Let us have a quarter of pot.

I ain't got it in block. (Tony) That's OK.

Just point eight so I'll throw an extra one in.

That's OK. That's great. Aye, sure, mate.

Who's the chick?

One of them, is it?

Sick man, you are.

Tomorrow?

I'll have everything tomorrow.

Four hundred? Aye.

Deffo? Aye.

(Barney) Don't let me down tomorrow, Tony.

Six, seven...

And there's the extra one. Makes up for the point.

(Tony) Thank you, pal.

Can I just use your kitchen? I've just got to sort some shit out.

(Exclaims) Oh, man.

You push the boat out, you, Tony.

Help yourself, but make it quick. You know what I mean?

(Tony) No problem. Thanks.

(Barney) Don't be all day, though. (Tony) I won't be long.

(Snorts)


I'm gonna phone your dad. What phone?


No, listen, Laila is here, though.

Yeah, I've got her here.

I'm gonna bring her.

I don't know about Zaheer. I don't know.

I'm going to bring Laila to you.

I'll bring her to you, you give me the money, OK?

The guys you were gonna give...

No, Junaid and Zaheer...

No, you don't get... The money you were gonna give those guys...

You're not dealing with them anymore.

You give me the money, OK? Where are you? Where are you?

Listen, mate, I don't know what the fuck you're saying, mate.

Jesus wept. This is...

Fuck. Tell him I want the money, OK? Ask him where he is.

Tell him. Dad.

Dad.


I'm sorry.

What did he say?

I'll take you home, OK?

(Tony) OK. OK.

OK.

Hey.

OK?

Is that you, T? That's us.

I want it tomorrow. Aye, laters.

(Barney) Don't let me down, bro. (Tony) No problem.

(Door closes)

(Locks door)

(Coughs)

(Spits)

(Phone rings)

Fuck.

Hello.

(Indistinct voice)

Fucking Tony?

What the fuck's that about?

(Speaks Punjabi) ...taking her back.

(Barry) Where the fuck are they? (Junaid) Restaurant.

(Sighs) Let's fucking go there.

You'll be OK back at your dad's.

Laila, you'll be OK.


Let's go.
