Pleasantview - Series 2 - Episode 12 - Brotherly Love

Darren: Morning son.
Dirk:
Dad, what are you doing here? Your always at work when I get up for school.
Darren:
Not today. I've arranged a day off, and I've just phoned your school and arranged one for you to.
Dirk:
What? Why?
(Doorbell rings)
Darren:
I'll explain in a minute. Just go and get dressed.

Mary-Sue: Morning. You've had a long sleep. It must have cleared your head a bit.
Daniel:
Absolutely. I don't know what I was thinking of yesterday.
Mary-Sue:
I'm glad you've come to your senses. I've made some breakfast for you.
Daniel:
Oh, that was a nice gesture, but I'll have to pass on it. I need to get to the hospital and see Kaylynn.
Mary-Sue:
It's your favourite... omelette!
Daniel:
Well I could never say no to your omelettes Mary. Kaylynn can wait a little longer.

Dirk: Dad, what's going on? Didn't we get new beds just before Christmas?
Darren:
Yes. These aren't for us.
Dirk:
Who are they for then?
Darren:
Do you remember your uncle Peter?
Dirk:
Sort of. We haven't seen him for years though.
Darren:
Yeah, I know. Anyway, he's coming to live with us and so is his son, Sam.
Dirk:
What!? Why?
Darren:
Well, do you remember Peter had his own business?
Dirk:
I think so.
Darren:
It went bust a couple of weeks ago, and Peter was declared bankrupt. The bank have taken their house Dirk.
Dirk:
There isn't enough room for them here Dad.
Darren:
We'll squeeze them in. Peter can share my room and Sam can share yours.
Dirk:
My room!? But Dad..
Darren:
No buts' Dirk, just help me get these beds inside.
Dirk:
You can't dad! Can't they stay in a hotel?
Darren:
They haven't got any money Dirk. Come on, I'll got the top and you get the bottom.

Brandi: Right, are you ready? The bus will be here any time now.
Beau:
I'm ready.
Brandi:
Good. You can watch TV while you wait.
Beau:
Yay!
Brandi:
Good boy.
Beau:
Can we go and see Dustin tonight? You said we could go soon.
Brandi:
Not tonight. I'm busy.
Beau:
Please mummy.
Brandi:
I suppose it's been a while.
Beau:
We haven't been since you argued.
Brandi:
That was the day after Christmas.
Beau:
It's been ages! Can we take him a present?
Brandi:
Were not allowed to, but we will go and see him when you get home. Oh, here's the bus. Off you go. See you tonight.
Beau:
Bye mummy.

Darren: See, it isn't that bad.
Dirk:
There's hardly enough room to stand!
Darren:
We'll manage.
Dirk:
Why should we have to?
Darren:
Because there our family. Anyway, you and Sam should get on well together.
Dirk:
How old is he again?
Darren:
He's a year younger than you.
Dirk:
What happened to his mum?
Darren:
She abandoned him and Peter shortly after he was born.
Dirk:
Oh.
Darren:
They've not had an easy life.
Dirk:
They used to be loaded!
Darren:
Money isn't everything.
Dirk:
Didn't Sam go to private school though? I bet he's a right snob!
Darren:
Your best mate goes to private school! Is he a snob?
Dirk:
Alex? I suppose not.
Darren:
Exactly. Just be nice to him please.
Dirk:
I'll try.
Darren:
Good. Let's go and get Peter's bed sorted.

Dr Andrews: Were not going to talk about your father today Dustin.
Dustin:
Thank god for that!
Dr Andrews:
I want to spend a bit of time chatting about the rest of your family. Your mum and your younger brother Beau. You get on well with Beau don't you?
Dustin:
Were like any other brothers. We spend half the time fighting and half the time having a laugh together. There's nothing for you to analyse, when it comes to me and Beau.
Dr Andrews:
How about your mother. You two don't get on too well, do you?
Dustin:
Not really. She's always having a go at me. She even had a go at me the last time she came to visit. Infact, it was the only time she came to visit. You'd think she'd be happy to see her son!
Dr Andrews:
I'm sure she was. She did happen to hear you shouting racist comments across the room just as she entered.
Dustin:
If I'm racist at all then it's not my fault. My dad was racist. I must of learnt it off him. All my problems are down to him..
Dr Andrews:
Indeed.

Darren: Right, were ready for them.
Dirk:
I can't believe you've got uncle Peter his own double bed. Couldn't he of shared with you?
Darren:
I suppose he could of, but I just wanted to make them both feel comfortable here. They haven't exactly got many of their own possessions right now.
Dirk:
How long are they going to be staying?
Darren:
For as long as they need to. It could be weeks, it could be months... it may even be years.
Dirk:
(Sighs). When are they coming?
Darren:
Peter said he'd be here by this afternoon.
Dirk:
A few more hours as just our home then.
Darren:
Yeah.
(Doorbell)
Dirk:
Did you order something else?
Darren:
No...

Darren: It's them! There early. They both look so different. Sam looks a lot like you, doesn't he?
Dirk:
Dad, your gawping at them.
Darren:
Oh right (laughs). I better open the door.

Peter: Darren!
Darren:
Peter! It's great to see you again.
Peter:
And you. I really appreciate you putting us up like this.
Darren:
It's fine.
Peter:
Hey Dirk! Buddy! You've changed!
Dirk:
Hi uncle Pete.
Peter:
Do you remember Sam?
Sam:
Alright?
Dirk:
Hi.
Peter:
There both talkative, aren't they!?
Darren:
(Laughs) Come on, I'll show you where your bed is. Dirk, show Sam where he'll be sleeping.
Dirk:
Right.

Dirk: That's your bed over there.
Sam:
Right, thanks. Where do we get dressed?
Dirk:
The bathroom I guess.
Sam:
Yeah, good idea. Hey, what's my new school like?
Dirk:
Your a bit eager aren't you!? You've only just got here.
Sam:
I just want to settle in here.
Dirk: My Dad's probably arranged it so you can start next week. I'd enjoy the time off if I was you.
Sam: Can't I come with you tomorrow?
Dirk: You can't just turn up.
Sam: Can you show me?
Dirk: What, now?
Sam: Yeah.
Dirk: I suppose. Once you see it your never going to want to go there again. I'll just go and tell my dad.

Peter: You must love painting up here. It's so quiet and relaxing.
Darren:
Yeah, it's inspirational.
Peter:
Hey, with your talent and my business expertise maybe we could open up a business!
Darren:
I think you should take a break from business ventures for now.
Peter:
I suppose your right. I have to wait six months before I can open one anyway.
Darren:
We better find you a job then.
Peter:
Great!
Darren:
(Laughs) Do you think those two are getting on as well as we are?
Peter:
I don't know. Sam's kind of hard to get along with. He's a bit too quiet.
Darren:
Dirk is too. Hopefully they'll talk to each other.
Peter: Do you think we should tell them, you know, now that there together?
Darren:
I don't know. How do you think Sam will feel if he finds out that his mother was really his auntie Darleen?

Darren: Hey guys, nice of you to drop by again. Rachel, what's wrong?
Peter:
We've just been to the hospital. Ever since you had Dirk we've been trying to have our own kids.
Darren:
I knew you guys really loved him!
Rachel:
(Sobs)
Darren:
Was it something I said?
Peter:
We've just found out that Rachel can't have children.
Darren:
Oh my god. Sit down guys!

Darren: I'm so sorry.
Peter:
Me too.
Darren:
I wish there was something I could do.
Peter:
Unless you can give my wife a new womb there isn't.
Darren:
You could always use someone else's womb. A surrogate mother.
Peter:
Yeah, if only Rachel was producing the goods. Her whole plumbing's messed up.
Darren:
Oh dear. I'm sorry Rachel.
Rachel:
I guess I was never meant to have children!
Darren:
Don't give up hope. There is another way.
Peter:
How?

Darleen: Hi guys. Nice to see you both again. I've just been having a few winks. Dirk kept me awake all night last night.
Rachel:
Hallelujah.
Darleen:
Excuse me?
Darren:
Honey, there's something really important we need to ask you.
Darleen:
Then shoot sweetie.

Peter: I still can't believe how easily she agreed to be the mother of our child.
Darren:
I can. It was because of her religion. She was helpful to anyone and everyone.
Peter:
I really appreciate everything you did for us back then. You did all the research and arranged everything.
Darren:
I just wanted my brother to feel as happy as I did when Dirk was born.
Peter:
I just wished Rachel could of loved Sam when he was born...

Peter: Thanks so much for doing this Darleen.
Darleen:
You've been thanking me for the last nine months! It's fine!
Rachel:
Are you sure it's ok for us to be here for the birth?
Darleen:
Of course. Your it's parents after all.
Rachel:
Technically, you and Peter are it's parents.
Darleen:
But your going to be it's mum sweetie.
Peter: Are you alright darling?
Rachel: I don't think I'll be able to treat this baby as my own. I'll always think of it as my husbands, brother's, wife's baby.
Darleen: Guys, I'm in agony here! Get the midwife back in here!
Peter: Ok I'm on it!

Midwife: Congratulations. You have a beautiful baby boy.
Darleen: He is beautiful, but Rachel here's going to be his mum.
Peter: He's great Rachel. Come and see! He's going to be a business tycoon like his dad when he's older. What should we call him Rachel. Rachel?

Peter: She must be feeling a bit emotional.
Darleen: I don't think she's coming back.

Darren: Things have turned out fine now though, haven't they? Sam seems like a great kid.
Peter:
He is. Not having a mum didn't make his life too difficult.
Darren:
I'm going to enjoy having you live here. I've missed you.
Peter:
(Laughs) I've missed you too, and your cooking!
Darren:
(Laughs) Well it is lunch time, so I should rustle something up for us now. We'll have to wait for the boys to get back now though. Hopefully they won't be too long.

Dirk: Here we are, my school.
Sam:
I don't know what the fuss was about. It looks fine to me. Infact, it looks nice.
Dirk:
Yeah, at the front! The back is a mass of tarmac!
Sam:
Most schools are. Come on, lets go inside.
Dirk:
We can't, people will be in lessons and I'm supposed to be off.
Sam:
Scared you'll get told off?
Dirk:
No!
Sam:
Come on then.
Dirk:
Ok, but were not allowed in the front door. That's just for guests. We've got to go round the back.

Sam: Is that where you and your mates eat lunch?
Dirk:
Sometimes.
Sam:
Have you got a lot of mates?
Dirk:
A few.
Sam:
Cool. I've never really been very good at making friends. I never really had any at my old school.
Dirk:
Oh, well I haven't really got any either.
Sam:
I knew it! My dad said you were probably still a loner.
Dirk:
Oh really!?
Sam:
Yep. Lets go inside now.
Dirk:
Someone might see us though.
Sam:
Don't be a wimp.

Sam: See, there's no one here.
Dirk:
Ok, you've seen it now. Can we go?
Jason:
Hey Dirk!
Dirk:
Oh crap.

Jason: I never thought I'd see you skiving lessons!
Dirk:
I'm having a day off.
Jason:
Skiving a whole day!? I'm impressed! Who's your friend? A new boyfriend?
Dirk:
He's my cousin.
Jason:
Does he speak?
Sam:
Yes, I do.
Jason:
A word of warning posh boy, dressing like that is going to get you nothing but beatings at this school.
Sam:
Oh really? Well, bullies don't scare me! There pathetic low life!
Jason:
Dirk, you better sort out your cousins attitude! Smell you later gay boy..

Sam: How long's he been bullying you?
Dirk:
Quite a while. He's not really that bad though. He sort of gave up when his friend, Dustin, got sent to a psych hospital.
Sam:
He's still a bully! You should tell a teacher.
Dirk:
No way.
Sam:
Why does he think your gay?
Dirk:
I don't know, he just does.
Sam:
And are you?
Dirk:
What? No! Of course not!
Sam:
It's nothing to be ashamed of. You can tell me. I'll keep it secret. I'm... gay.

Dirk: What the hell was that!? Don't ever do that again!
Sam:
What, you kissed me!
Dirk:
No I did not!
Sam:
Yes you did! I said I was gay and then you kissed me.
Dirk:
No, you kissed me, and I don't want to get kissed by boys, ok?
Sam:
Stop denying it Dirk.
Dirk:
Get lost!

Sam: Hey wait! How am I going to get home!?

Darren: Dirk! We were starting to get worried.
Peter:
Where's Sam?
Dirk:
I don't know!
Darren:
What do you mean? You should of been looking after him.
Dirk:
I'm not his baby sitter!
Peter:
Well, where did you leave him?
Dirk:
At the school.
Darren:
We better go and find him.

Sam: There's no need. I'm here. I just followed Dirks smell back here.
Darren:
(Laughs).
Peter:
You two are obviously getting on well!
Darren:
Just both wash your hands. Dinners almost ready.
Dirk:
I'm not hungry.
Darren:
Cheer up Dirk.
Peter:
I used to bounce him on my knee when he was little. Do I need to do that now Dirk, to put a smile on your face?
Dirk:
No! I'm fine now!
Peter:
I thought you would be!

Beau: Hi mum, I'm home!
Brandi:
Hi sweetie.
Beau:
What time are we going to see Dustin?
Brandi:
We can't go anymore.
Beau
: Oh, but I was really looking forward to it.
Brandi:
Me too, but I got a phone call from them earlier, saying they want my next payment. I've got to go out to work.
Beau:
Where are you going to work?
Brandi:
Oh, I don't know. I'll probably just clean someone's house for a few quid.
Beau:
Oh.
Brandi:
Get yourself one of those microwave meals for dinner, and don't stay up too late. I'll see you tomorrow.
Beau:
Ok. Bye mum.

Sam: Well night Dirk.
Dirk:
Don't speak to me.
Sam:
It was just a kiss!
Dirk:
Will you keep your voice down!?
Sam:
Sorry.
Dirk:
Ok, I'm... I'm... gay. Happy now?
Sam:
Yes. Don't worry, we can share each others secret.
Dirk: Yeah, I guess we can. Just never tell anyone else. If my dad ever finds out, I'll be so ashamed...
Sam: I won't mention it to anyone.
Dirk: Night.
Sam: Night.
