CAR ENGINE STARTS KNOCK ON THE DOOR 'Hey.'
Nightmare getting back.
One train wa s cancelled, another delayed.
Don't worry, it's fine.
What did you wanna talk about?
I just wanted to see you.
I miss you.
I miss you, too.
Mind if I...?
Are you sure you're OK?
Yeah, I'm fine.
Well, you don't seem fine.
Has something happened?
I don't know.
I'm telling you, I'm fine.
What is it?
I know you.
What is it?
You've met someone.
This is why we're not together.
It's exactly this!
I'm telling you.
I swear, there's no-one.
Well, you can't help yourself!
I give you a chance, and then a month, six months, a year and...
It's not what you think, all right?
But it is something.
Look, I'll get him.
I'll put him back to bed.
It'll confuse them.
It's not your night.
Daddy's just going home, OK?
Can't you stay?
Er, not now.
He's got important business, haven't you?
Er, look, I'm sorry if I woke you.
You go with Mummy, OK?
Come on, back to bed.
You'll see Daddy soon.
Say night to Daddy.
Night, wee man.
He wouldn't do this.
Bram loves the boys.
He wouldn't just sell the house from under them.
When exactly did you meet him?
At the open house.
I'm sorry, there is no way there was an open house.
I live next door.
I think I would have noticed.
Well, there was.
It only lasted an hour or so.
It was a quick sale.
Three or four prospective buyers.
When was this?
Saturday, late October.
Sorry, so... you're telling me that Bram was here in this kitchen and he sold you the house?
DOOR BELL RINGS Let's see what the police think.
Look, I suggest you check the flat, ring round the hospitals, and if you haven't located him by Monday, get back in touch.
Emma, our solicitor, is in a meeting.
She's gonna call back.
Can't you get these people to leave?
Officer, if I might?
We've met her husband.
You acknowledged it.
We've paid almost £2 million into this woman's account.
Well, I haven't got it.
I've got proof.
I'm afraid there's nothing we can do at the moment.
On the face of it, no fraud has taken place.
This isn't fraud.
It's been done with the full cooperation of the owners.
You can't prove that.
Look... You need to go through the proper pr ocess to establish ownership.
I'm sure your solicitor is able to shed more light on the situation.
And if they don't?
You can't expect us to wait weeks.
We need to know who has the right to live in this house now, today.
Check with your solicitor.
Whoever's name is on the deeds owns the house.
This is MY house!
PHONE BUZZES It 's Rav, the agent.
I'll see myself out.
This can't be right.
How would you feel if you came home and you found everything gone, strangers moving into your house, your husband missing, everything you've worked your whole life for?
There must be something you can do.
Really, but there isn't.
Chin up, boys, come on!
CHILDREN SHOUTING CHEERING AND APPLAUSE WHISTLE BLOWS, CHEERING Yes, wee man!
WHISTLE BLOWS We're having champagne tonight an d possibly marital relations.
THEY CHUCKLE Oh!
You're not drinking?
So, have you got something you'd like to tell us?
A little secret?
Because Hugh went out with Adrian last night.
They had a few.
So, are you gonna tell them, or shall I?
What is it?
Oh, my God!
Erm, it was meant to be a secret until 12 weeks.
That is so exciting!
So, how far along are you?
Adrian must be thrilled.
He wants a boy.
Too many women in the house.
I am so jealous.
I' m feeling a bit broody myself.
Roger, do the business!
What, have another baby?
Start again at the beginning?
I don't think so.
Oh, God, sorry, love.
I would, if I was younger, of course.
It's my birthday.
I'm allowed to put my foot in it.
You just need a new man first.
So , I've got just the candidate.
He's a friend of Hugh's, OK?
He is recently divorced.
He's in great shape for 45.
I could give him a call now, just to see if he's free.
Oh, my God, do it.
Go on, do it!
Have some fun.
I don't have a baby-sitter.
They were hopeless.
No , you made them look hopeless.
We smashed them.
Right, I'll see youse at the weekend, OK?
DOOR BELL RINGS Get off!
Have you heard the news?
I haven't seen Adrian in a while, so ...
I'd better buy him a pint.
So, just to be clear, it was definitely Mrs Lawson?
What did Rav say?
Apparently, Mrs Lawson has been on the phone in a panic.
Claims the funds haven't arrived in her account and she wants to know where her 2 million is.
Well, I didn't call!
I clearly don't know anything about this.
He says you did.
You, your husband, you signed the contract together.
It was witnessed by Jensen, and it was signed by you.
I told you, I didn't sign it.
HE SCOFFS I didn't!
Whoever called, whoever signed it, is some other woman.
Some other woman pretending to be me.

But another time, hey?
Who are you waiting for?
Not me, is it?
DOOR CLOSES How'd it go?
You're back early.

For the baby-sitting.
Oh, don't be silly.

I hope you don't mind.
What's mine is yours.
Did you pop into the playhouse for old times' sake?
Fi... You can see yourself out.
I wanted to tell you about the baby, I just didn't get a chance.
Is it Bram's?
And don't lie.
Because I'll know.
Of course not.
I swear on my life.
There's the door.
Can we talk?
SHE SCOFFS Is that why you muscled your way in here?
I just want a chance to explain.
What I did was unforgivable.
I know that.
But it was a one-time thing.
I will do whatever you need me to do.
I miss you.
I miss you so... No, stop.
I will keep the peace, for the sake of the girls, for our kids.
I'm not willing to destroy all of that just to let them know what a lying, treacherous bitch you are, but don't... don't even think about trying to be my friend.

Whose is it, then?
I share it with my wife.
On your way?
I cheated on her.
Two different women.
You are disgusting.
I'm not proud of it.
The first time was years ago.
I was young, drunk.
I came clean, and she forgave me.
Not this time?
Not this time.
She chucked you out.
And now you have to live in this dump.
I love married men.
They're so desperate.
Got a light?
I've got to get up really early in the morning.
I can take a hint.
Listen, this has been really, erm... Nice?
Er... You're still in love with your wife.
I'm not blind.
I've seen you before.
When was that?
Oh, you know, the other night.
When you ran those people off the road.
You just drove off.
Left them there to die.
Fleeing the scene.
It's a crime, apparently.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Please, I'm a witness.
I saw you.
Look, this... ..it doesn't have to be nasty, unpleasant.
I just want rewarding... for my silence.
So you're trying to blackmail me?
I know what you did.
I'm trying to protect you.
Look, I don't know what you think you saw.
But that wasn't my fault.
I was just driving home, and this guy... this guy almost forced me off the road, so I tried to overtake.
We came round the bend...
Lo ok, it just happened so fast.
I feel sick about it, all right?
I feel sick.
But you drove off.
Yeah, cos the other driver, he drove off!
So that's all right, then?
That's not what I'm saying, right?
I shouldn't have run away.
I should have done the right thing, and I should have called the police.
Maybe I should call them now.
That's a mug's game.
It was an accident.
It... don't have to ruin the rest of your life.
There's a five grand reward for information.
All you need to do is better that sum, you're in the clear.
Think about it.
DOOR CLOSES Divorced.
He suggested that we went to the British Museum together on a Sunday.
I got back home and called Bram.
The other night, I invited him round.
I mean, I don't know what I thought was gonna happen, but I changed my top, I put some perfume on.
FI SCOFFS I was like a teenager on a first date.
And then I got paranoid and lost my nerve.
I accused him of hiding something and sent him home.
I just wonder if I shouldn't have.
Roger saw him go home with a woman last night.
He was in The Brewers.
He saw Bram... with a woman, and they left together.
I'm sorry, love.
FI SIGHS Daddy!
I thought you'd given up.
Well, I had, but then the wife kicked me out, you know?
HE SIGHS Is Daddy coming in?
I'll see you at the weekend, OK?
What are you doing here?
I'm sorry I didn't return your call, but it was late, I was knackered, I just crashed out.
But I did really want to talk to you about something.
I still do.
Don't worry about it.
Fi... You're free to do whatever you want.
You don't need to explain yourself to me.
We had an agreement.
Just... don't forget to wash the sheets.
Of course there's another woman involved!
SHE SCOFFS How could I be so stupid?
Well, she says she's Fiona Lawson.
Hasn't received the proceeds of the sale.
Can't locate her husband.
But you say YOU'RE Fiona Lawson.
I AM Fiona Lawson!
Never sold the house in the first place, ca n't find your husband either.
One of you is lying.
Here's my driver's licence.
Is that enough to convince you?
Any chance you've got a number for this fake Mrs Lawson?
Well, Rav won't just hand out clients' details.

Erm...' PHONE BEEPS They're in a very energetic mood.

I wondered whether we should get a loan.
You know, just to tide us over while we're sorting all this out.
Sorting what out?
And you think getting more financially entangled, that's gonna help?
No, I'm just being practical.
We've got a mortgage, the rent to pay - we're running two households.
Are you trying to pressure me to move back in?
We agreed, the whole point of this bird's-nesting thing is to give us more space.
That's what I want.
Whatever you need, that's what I want.

Erm... Alison, this is... Wendy from work.
Nice to meet you.
Can I have a word?
I'll be right back.
What the fuck?!
What are you doing here?

Devastated, to be honest.

'You should have told me you were coming.'
I could have made us something to eat.
Ah, it was spur of the moment.
I just thought I'd pop round.
How are the boys?
I mean... really good.
I was thinking about Dad's old car, and it's... it's just rusting away out there.
I thought maybe we could sell it.
Just hear me out.
Oh, no, I'm not selling.
It was your father's.
He loved that car!
You said you wanted me to have it.

Him sitting at that table hour after hour, just staring into space, and then gone for weeks on end, not knowing where... Do you know I could hear you?
Up all night, pacing around.
I might have been ten years old, but I didn't miss a thing.
Now, what one of those lovely memories do you want me to recall?
What is wrong with you?
I need a loan.
I need some money.
This whole separation thing, keeping the house and the flat, I can't afford it.
Well, move back in, then.
She won't have me, all right?
Do you not get it?
She's moved on!
I'm sure that's not true.
I need your help, OK?
I'm living on a pension.
I know, it's just... anything you can do to help.

I have to give notice.
Let me... Let me get my purse.
Let me have a look.
I might be able to help.
Look, it's fine.
Honest, I should never have asked.

Every other weekend.
So, during the week, I work.
I'm a mother.
House to run.
