Yes?

Do you want Mum?

Mum?

Yes, love?

Jeanie, get inside.

Just let me talk to her.

You can't do this to me. she's my daughter. Just a minute. she don't know you, George. And she don't wanna know you. I don't wanna fucking know you.

You can't do this to me. I only come to see her.

You can't do this to me!

I'm sorry, love. I'm sorry.

Get out.

You cow!

I only came to say hello.

Hello!

Fuck off.

Charming.

Fuck off!

You gonna clean all that up?

Come on, mate.

Oi, hey, hey, take it easy, boy, okay? Hey.

Just let him be, right? The man's upset. Okay?

That's the right word, George, eh? Upset.

so, where'd they all come from?

They live here. since when? since you went inside.

Jesus.

Did you get my last book?

Yeah, yeah. shouldn't have been the driver though.

Who should it have been then?

I could pin him in the first chapter.

Who should it have been then?

The Chinese fella who fed the goldfish.

You didn't write it, George.

No, no, I didn't, but if I had-

Christ!

You kept it.

Aye, kept it for you.

You keep it tuned?

Why does she hate me, Thomas? she doesn't.

Yes, she does.

You can never tell with women, George. They're different.

They wear skirts and like to powder their noses, and when they go to heaven, they get wings.

Like angels?

Aye, like angels.

Yeah, but angels are men, Thomas.

Men?

Yes.

No one told me that.

It's true. Angels are men.

You got a big white rabbit with long floppy ears?

No, but we have one with short ears.

What's his name?

His name is Arthur. He's over here.

Oh, right. He'll do, yeah.

What is this, George?

It's a rabbit.

You're not gonna start all that business again, are you?

Eh?

Yeah, why not?

Look, George, you can't go in there.

Why not?

It's different.

What, Mortwell, is he different, too?

Very different.

Ah, we'll see.

Come on, George, you're not going in there.

I've done seven years for him, Thomas!

Listen, George, you don't know what they are up to now.

I don't give a fuck. Give us the rabbit.

No, listen, oi, what do you want it for?

I'm gonna give it to him.

Well, it's up to you.


We're closed.

Tell him, Terry.

Yeah, we're closed, sir.

Hiya, Terry.

He'll have a lettuce and I'll have a Bloody Mary.

George?

That's right, and this is Arthur.

What you doing here?

Looking for Mortwell, Terry. Bit of work, you know.

What do you do now?

Whatever comes up.

Yeah, but this is a knocking shop.

Leave it out, George.

So, where is he?

Mortwell? He's not around.

Well, he must be somewhere.

Better ask Dudley, George.

Through there?

Expecting me?

Knew I was out?

I suspected it, George. so, where is he?

Where's who?

Mortwell.

He's away, George. south of France.

He owes me, Dudley. He said he'd look after me.

He said a lot of things, George.

Next time you see him, give him that!

Oi, George, George. Come on.

Look, we need a driver.

I'm a driver.

Do you know what a bleeper is?

I can't understand it, how's that little thing it's supposed to go bleep wherever I am?

Well, it bounces off the Post Office tower, George.

Miracle of modern technology.

Yeah, but it hasn't got an aerial or nothing.

Ah, it doesn't need one. Look, I'll show you, right?

What's that? Is that going?

No, no, that's a tester to see it's making a noise.

Don't muck about with it, for Christ sake. You've been pulling that bleeding knob.

I bet you've buggered it.

What do you think?

What do you do, melt it down and eat it?

No, they're ornamental, George.

Ornamental spaghetti?

Aye. I reckon it'll go a bomb.

Where did you get it?

Contacts, George. Can't find plastic spaghetti just anywhere.

Nah. I don't suppose too many people make it, do they?

Aye. Well, the Japanese cornered the market.

You fancy a fiberglass fruit flan?

Or a polystyrene tutti-frutti?

Fancy a cup of tea?

What's it made of?

Leaves!


Paging Mr. Carrington.

Paging Mr. Carrington.

Where's the bar?

Take a seat, sir, and I'll take your order.

Paging Mr. Carrington.


Thank you, sir.

You doing business?

Darling, sorry I kept you.

What do you think this is, the honeymoon hotel?

Look, do you have business in this hotel or can I really help you?

Where's your car?

Over there.

Pretend you know me, would you?

I don't know you, do I?

Pretend you fucking well do.

Not the back, the front. so, where did they get you from?

Under a cabbage leaf.

I have to work these places. The bar boy turns a blind eye but the manager doesn't.

Are you gonna tell me where you wanna go?

The Lambert. sorry.

Didn't they tell you that? You're meant to be my date not my minicab driver.

What does your date do?

He looks after me, you dingbat. He's meant to want to see me.

And what if he don't?

He pretends.

How do you pretend?

Christ, who sent you?

Does it matter? You're the tom, darlin'.

Just shut up and drive, would you?

Oh, can I have a large Bloody Mary? I'm sitting here, all right?

Here, did you hear me?

Are you serving here or just wearing in a new pair of shoes?

Oi!

Do you want a drink? They don't seem to serve you here.

I've done it wrong again, ain't I?

Okay, I got it wrong. That's all.

What did you expect? I'm not used to working in piss holes like this.


That was quick.

You were asleep.

Was I? How was he?

I beg your pardon?

How was the Arab?

None of your business.

Oh, all right. Where to?

Kings Cross.

You want a chocolate sandwich?

Bit down market, ain't it? shut up.

Drive on, please.

And now?

You leave me here.

Goodnight then.

You'll have to get yourself some clothes.

Why will I have to get meself some clothes?

If you're to drive me.

Here, use this.

I'm not having you paying me.

Why not?

You don't even like me.

I can claim it.

Goodnight.

Is this real?

Aye, of course. A present for you.

Right. Is it good?

It's brilliant.

Yeah?

Aye. somebody's murdering opera singers, right?

Yeah.

And after every murder, they leave a Percheron.

What's a Percheron?

Kind of horse.

You mean like a white horse that pulls a milk cart?

Aye, that kind of thing.

Oh, right. And?

Well, then it gets complicated. Might just spoil it for you.

Oh.


Christ.

What do you think?

Jesus.

You don't like them?

Do you?

Well, I bought them, didn't I?

You bought them? All right.

Oh fuck, here, here's your change.

Not here, for Jesus sake.

You're as much cover as a pair of fishnet tights.

I may as well be wearing a sign around my neck.

Oh, all you're missing is the gold medallion.

Don't like them, either?

Fucking hate them.

Right.

See, I'm cheap. I can't help it. God made me that way.

Being cheap is one thing, looking cheap is another. That really takes talent. some woman are whores, some whores are black.

You take what you're given, don't ya?

I didn't ask to drive you around. I was given you, same as you was given me.

The only difference is, you complain and I don't!

Turn it off! You heard me, turn it off.

Look, you ask me to buy clothes, I buy 'em.

But you make remarks. Did anybody ever teach you manners?

Do you wanna work for me?

No.

Get out. Get the fucking out, lady.

Now tell me I'm fired.

All right, you're fired.

Lovely. I'm fired and you're street walking.

Fuck off.

You swine.

Go screw yourself.


Hey.

Piss off.

Look, come on.

Look, come on, you can't stand in the middle of the road.

You're gonna get run over.

Come on, please. Please, I'm sorry.

All right, I wasted your money. I look ridiculous. I'm sorry.

You don't look that bad.

Well, bad enough.

Get in the car, madame.

We're late.

All right, all right, I'm-I'm sorry.

We're gonna get run over here.

Where do you wanna go?

Up to Highgate.


Madam thought you might like some refreshment, sir.

Oh, thank you very much. Will she be long?

No more than usual, sir.

Oh, right, cheers.


See you next time.

Uh, who do I give this to?

To me.

Oh, thank you, thanks a lot. Ta ra. see ya.

He took his time.

What, did he fall asleep half way through?

Well, you never know with these darkies, do you?

I'm sorry. Well, I told you I was cheap, didn't I?

Very.

Much obliged. Where to now?

Kings Cross.

Back to the meat rack. Your wish is my command.


Jesus, they're so young.

Here, tell me something.

What?

Do they ever want you back?

Who?

Your clients.

Always.

What, they-they fall-fall in love with you?

Well, do they? sometimes they fall for what they think I am.

What do they think you are?

What do you think? Black whore.

Did I say that?

What do you think then?

Well, you ain't no night nurse.

No, I ain't no night nurse.

Let's say you are a lady.

Thank you.

so, what about this job then?

Well, it's-it's just driving, you know.

Yeah? Driving who?

A tall thin black tart. I could write a book about it.

Too many T's.

No, no. He comes out the nick and they owe him one.

And they give him a job, driving a tall thin black tart.

And she fucking hates him. Treats him like a doormat.

And he hates her?

Well, kind of.

You mean he likes her?

He don't even know her, does he? she's early.

You look better in the daytime.

Yeah, so do you. so, where do you wanna go?

Down here.

What, you wanna walk?

Yes, it's good for you.

Bit early though, in it?

I know, but the early bird catches the worm.

Clever little bastard.

I n here?

Yes.

You got business here?

Yeah. Try these.

They're pure silk.

And these.

Do you like men's clothes? sometimes.

How about a thin stripe?

That's classy.

Herringbone?

Here, look at that. Isn't it nice? Eh?

It's lovely.

Hm.

What do you think?

What do you wanna wear men's clothes for?

I don't. It's for you.

For me?

Yeah, try it.

You can't dress me.

Yes, I can. Try it. Look, if you wanna work for me, you dress yourself.

I said no.

Take the fucking thing, will you? They're looking.

You serious?

Yes. Please.

Well-

I may as well then, mayn't I?

Yeah. You may as well.


What do you think?

It's lovely.

Yeah. It's lovely.

Thank you.

There was this frog and no one would ever kiss him.

Why not?

Well, he was a frog, weren't he. You know the story, don't ya?

Yeah. Turned into a prince.

Yeah. And then they got-

Twenty minutes.

Right.


A Bloody Mary is it, sir?

No, I'd like a pot of tea, please.

Earl Grey or Lapsang souchong?

No, tea.

Very good, sir.

Thank you.


Good evening, sir, may I see your invitation?

Denny. Denny. It's all right, Denny.

Jesus Christ, George.

What am I doing here, right?

I didn't say that.

I'm sorry.

Don't be sorry. It's bad to be sorry.

Hello, mate.

Raschid, this is, eh, George.

Of course. We have met.

How did you get on the other night? Was she good?

Come on, George.

I'm sorry, but I've been trying to contact ya.

Wasn't Dudley looking after ya?

Yeah, he is, but there's nothing like a personal touch. seven years.

This isn't the time. This is business, George.

But we've got a lot to talk about. so we have. I'll ring you.

Promise?

I promise.

Did you get the rabbit?

Good?

What do you mean?

Well, I mean the, um, you know. All right?

What is wrong with you?

I don't know.

What's-what's wrong with me? Eh?

Ooh, come on, sweetheart.

You wanna try me?

Ooh, she's pretty!

stop here.

Here, mate, you as fast as your car?

Maybe it's for her, ey?

I've got a daughter that age. she's not out there.

Jesus, I hope not.

Go on, granddad, give it to me.

Here, shall we go? sh.

Do you want some?

I'm good. I do French, twosomes.

I'm very good.

Look, go home to your mum, will ya?

I know your type. You want it but you won't pay for it, will you?

I've seen you before. You're-

Go on, piss off.

Up yours.

Has he had you, Rosie? I'll fix the bastard.

If you don't want her, you fuck off, man, and you take your fucking motor with ya.

You! What you doing here?

Drive!

If Anderson finds you, he'll cut your face off.

Drive, would you?

You nigger tart.

Stop it, George! Stop it. Go on fucking out of here! Leave him, George!


so, tell me, what was that all about?

Well, come on.

Not here. Come on inside.

Where did you learn to do that?

Picked it up along the way.

How do you know him?

Like you, along the way. I used to work that street.

Who's Anderson?

Anderson?

Yeah.

Anderson is a ponce, a pimp.

Your ponce?

An animal born in a butcher's shop.

But have you got a ponce now?

No. Got you.

Did he knock you about?

He used to adjust my face. Yes.

Why didn't you leave?

He told me he'd cut me up.

Then he told me I was wonderful.

What, all in the same breath?

Yeah.

That's what a ponce does.

He drives flash cars and lives in a room with a paraffin heater.

I had a friend then.

He ran the two of us. she was younger than me. Beautiful.

She had a habit, and that's why I stayed.

One day I couldn't take it any longer.

I met a man with a gold ring who took me to Brighton.

When I woke up, he was gone.

I didn't mind. Saw the sea outside.

Met another on the pier and that paid the hotel bill.

Stayed the whole summer.

Even managed to save.

I came back to London.

Met the man with the gold ring again.

Learned about the West End hotels then and a different world.

I took a taxi round that street looking for Cath, but she was gone.

If you last a year and a half on that street, you're lucky.

I was lucky. I got out.

Cathy, her name is Cathy. she's a Londoner. she has a tattoo on her hand, there.

I promised I would look after her.

Things can happen out there.

Out where?

On the streets, in the clubs.

I can't go down, but you could.

I'll pay you.

How?

Any way I can.

I want to find her.

You know the way it is.

Yeah.

You're a good man, Mr. George.

How can you tell?

I can tell.

Will you think about it?

Yeah, I'll think about it.

Promise?

I promise.

Goodnight, Mr. George.

Goodnight.

Thanks for the drink.


Put the light out.

What do you reckon?

What happened to the spaghetti?

Went like hot cakes.

What are you gonna do with them?

I'm working on that.

You're mad.

D'you think so?

Of course.

Christ.

What's happened to you, George?

I'm growing up, Thomas. Time to look like other people.

You'll never look like other people, George.

Fuck, is that true?

Well, she don't think so.

Aye, what she up to? she's not up to anything. she's a friend of mine. she's got to be up to something. What do you think this lot cost?

Well, she's a woman of substance. she's a lady.

I thought you said she was a tart. Tall thin black tart.

Well, maybe, but she's still a fucking lady.

sorry about the language.

Nice car.

Can I get in, then? Boy, they're jealous.

They friends of yours? sort of.

Come on, get in.

You made a right mess up that day, Dad.

Yeah, I know. I'm sorry. so you should be.

What d'you mum say? she don't talk about you.

Never?

Dad, why did you leave?

Didn't she tell you?

Nah.

Well, I'm not gonna tell you, either.

Go on, please.

Oh. I was a bad lot. I'll tell you some day.

Are you still a bad lot?

It's not up to me to say, is it?

Take my arm.

Regular couple.

Yes, dear. sit down.

He's lonely.

Oh, hang on.

That's it. Got to look our best.

What was her name?

Nah, she was the wrong girl.

Is that what you say? I'm gonna make you happy? sometimes.

Why am I doing this?

So, what happened to the dwarf after he ran of with the, uh-

The Percheron?

Yeah, yeah, sorry.

He goes back to the psychiatrist's office.

The horse does?

No, the dwarf. He's got another session, right? And just as he's leaving-

Another murder!

How did you know that?

I'm good at these things. Don't tell me it was the lawyer's wife.

No, no it was the horse.

The horse murdered the lawyer's wife?

Not the fucking lawyer's wife. The horse was the victim, right?

It was the horse that got murdered.

What, with an ice pick?

Yeah, that would be good. I like that. Anyway, listen.

What about this tall thin black story?

Ah. Well, we got it wrong. The fella did.

Actually, she's a nun in disguise.

What kind of nun?

A sister of Mercy. You know those that wear the big white bonnets.

Aye, with the big thingies on it. she doesn't wear this the whole time though!

Well, she can't, can she? she's on the game. It'd look a bit funny, wouldn't it?

And spoil the point of the exercise.

How? she wouldn't be in disguise then, would she?

Well, that's nuns for you.

Can you tell them George is here, please?

Hello. There's a mister George down here for Mr. Mortwell.

Yeah, that's okay, all right.

Hi, George.

Hello, Denny.

I want to do it again. Come on, everybody. One.

Aren't you gonna ask me what age?

What age are you?

Fifty two, George. And you?

Well, it's not my birthday, is it?

No, it's not your birthday, is it?

You know what I think?

What do you think?

I think that you think that I left you in the shit.

Well, you did, didn't ya? Kind of.

Have a drink anyway, George. Life goes on happening.

We can't control it. We can only swim in it. so, what happens when you can't swim?

You get water on the brain, George.

But that can't be good, Denny.

And you know what happens then? You get confused, and always with the little things. You know the little things.

Do you or do you not get confused?

Yeah, I get confused.

You still get confused?

Yes, I get confused.

At least now you know. You do know it, don't you?

All right, now I know.

Well, that's something, because do you know what I'm good at, George?

I'm good at the little things, the little things that mean everything.

It seems that you forget, George.

I've got a family of me own now and it's all perfectly legal.

And it's all through the little things.

And you are part of that family, George.

One of my favorite parts.

I'm glad, Denny.

I'm happy that you are glad, George. Want another drink?

No. so, what's it all about? What am I doing here?

You're being happy. That's what it's all about.

You come out, I wasn't here.

Now I'm here. I want you to know that I know that.

I know.

That girl sees the Arab.

Every night.

You ask her what she does.

What d'you mean what she does?

I mean what she does? What he pays her for?

Why me?

Because you drive her, George. You should notice these things.

The little things. The business is different, but the rules are still the same.

I mean, I can't ask her that. she tells you, truthfully mind, that's important.

You tell me and I'll be happy, George.

You didn't like me, did you?

Don't, don't worry.

Everyone hates me once in a while.

But it's important to me, George, that you're happy.

Well, I'm happy.

Good, good.

You'd better go now.

You pick me up again?

Your mum wouldn't like it.

We can keep a secret then or something, all right?

Promise?

Maybe.

Can you do tricks?

What kind of tricks?

I don't know, any sort of tricks. Dad's are meant to do tricks, aren't they?

How about that?

That's a good trick. see you later, Dad.

I told him I was happy. That's all, I promise you.

Look, come on, now.
