Pleasantview - Series 2 - Episode 14 - On The Run

Welcome to Green Ridge village, located miles from Pleasantview and surrounded by miles of pine forest. The village is home to small population of villagers. Few people arrive here, but today, a desperate woman looking for a place to lie low will walk into the local pub...

Radio: Killer, Bella Goth has now been missing for almost four months. Bella was being held in police custody in Pleasantview on Christmas Eve, after admitting to the murder of her boy friend Henry Price. Bella somehow escaped from custody and is now on the run.

Radio: When last seen Bella was wearing a red dress and had long black hair. She's about five foot seven and looks young for her age of 39. Bella left Pleasantview without any money, but has a history of prostitution which she may of resorted to once again in order to survive.

Radio: If you see Bella please ring our emergency phone line on 0800 23552. Do not approach Bella, she may be armed and dangerous. And now back to old timers country music hour.
Anne:
That Bella is a nasty piece of work. She should really just face up to what she has coming.
Jim:
Aye. If I ever saw her I'd push her down the old well.
Anne:
Oh Jim, you always want to push people down that darn well!
Jim:
Well no one ever falls down it anymore, do they? It used to be a good laugh! Something to liven this place up!

Julie: Who the hell are you and what do you want!?
Bella:
I'm.. Mary-Sue.
Julie:
Mary-Sue who?
Bella:
Lothario.
Julie:
What are you doing in my pub?
Bella:
I just want a drink, and a place to stay.
Julie:
I'm sorry. Come in my friend.

Julie: I'm sorry about that miss. You just can't trust people these days. We just had yet another announcement about that Bella Goth on the radio. I take it you've heard of her?
Bella:
Oh yes, of course. I hope they catch her soon.
Julie:
Aye. Me too. So, what are drinking?
Bella:
What've you got?
Julie:
Ale, mead, wine... the usual.
Bella:
Have you got any vodka?
Julie:
'fraid not miss. There's no demand for it you see... not when no younger people come here. I'm surrounded by old people.
Bella:
I noticed. I'll take some red wine.
Julie:
Right you are miss.

Julie: So what brings you here to our oh so quiet foresting community? There can't be much here for a girl of your age.
Bella:
I stumbled upon it my chance.
Julie:
Excuse me for being rude, but how can you stumble upon this place my chance? Were surrounded by miles of forest!
Bella:
Good point. Well between me and you, I had a few problems back home and I just wanted to find a nice quiet place to get away from it all.
Julie:
Man trouble miss?
Bella:
Yeah, something like that. Anyway, do you have any rooms available?
Julie:
Aye. Will £10 a night be ok?
Bella:
Yeah, sure. Are there any jobs available around here?
Julie:
I doubt it. Are you any good at singing, because I really need a singer for tonight.
Bella:
Yeah, I can do that. How much can you pay me?
Julie:
I'm afraid I can't pay you anything. Business isn't really going well. I could let you stay for free though? Sort of a trade.
Bella:
Ok. Can you show me to my room?
Julie:
Right away miss.

Julie: Here we are. I'm afraid it's not much. There's no TV or nothing like that. Mind you, the TV reception ain't too good round here anyway. No one really uses there TV's.
Bella:
Oh good.
Julie:
Pardon me miss?
Bella:
I meant oh, and the rooms fine. Thank you.
Julie:
Right, I'll leave you to it then. If you want anything you know where I am.
Bella:
Thank you.
Julie:
Oh, and Mary, the guys probably won't be too fussed about your singing if you doll yourself up a bit. It'll earn you a few tips too!
Bella:
That wouldn't be a problem if I had any more clothes. I kind of left in a hurry.
Julie:
Have a look through my old costume trunk and see if there's anything you can find. It's out on the landing.
Bella:
Oh, ok, thank you.
Julie:
No problem.

Bella: It's going to be such a great girls night out!
Mary-Sue:
I know we've not had a good night out for a long time, but I can't stay out too long. Daniel wants me home early.
Bella:
Why do you let him rule you so much?
Mary-Sue:
I don't!
Bella:
Mortimer lets me stay out as late as I want to. If he didn't, I still would! Hey, lets go over and talk to that guy. He's all alone.
Mary-Sue:
He's probably waiting for someone.
Bella:
So? Come on..

Bella: Hi.
Henry:
Good evening ladies.
Bella:
All alone?
Henry:
Yeah, unfortunately.
Bella:
Mind if we join you?
Henry:
Sure, why not.

Bella: I'm Bella and this is Mary.
Henry:
Nice to meet you both. I'm Henry. Can I get you ladies a drink?
Bella:
Absolutely. Mines a vodka and coke.
Mary-Sue:
Thanks very much. I'll have a tomato juice.
Henry:
Are you sure?
Mary-Sue:
Yes thank you.
Bella:
Sorry about her. I haven't got her out of the house for a while!
Henry:
(Laughs).

Bella: Yeah, it's a shame about your deal falling through. You seem like an intelligent man though. I'm sure you can work it out.
Henry:
Thank you Bella. Can I get you both another drink?
Mary-Sue:
No thank you. I think we've have enough. We better be going.
Bella:
What? It's only nine! I'd love another please Henry.

Bella: What are you playing at?
Mary-Sue:
I was about to ask you the same thing!
Bella:
This guys offering us free drinks. Why are you turning them down?
Mary-Sue:
He probably thinks he's got lucky with you. Don't you think you should mention your a married woman!?
Bella:
Don't be stupid. He's just being friendly.
Mary-Sue:
I've got to get home to Daniel. Just be careful.
Bella:
I'm a big girl Mary. I'll call you tomorrow.

Bella: You better cancel that tomato juice. Mary's gone.
Henry:
Oh ok.
Bella:
That leaves us two alone.
Henry:
(Laughs). I'm looking forward to it.

Bella: It's so good to have a shower at last! These men aren't going to know where to look when I'm finished!

Bella: What!? No. My hair! The bottle said it was long lasting dye! Please, not now!

Mary-Sue: Your saw him again!? Bella, you've seen him about ten times now. You can't fool me anymore saying your just friends!
Bella:
I know. Were not just freinds.
Mary-Sue:
What? That wasn't what I wanted to hear. You can't have a relationship with him! What about Mortimer?
Bella:
What about him? I hardly ever see him. He always wants to rest!
Mary-Sue:
He's a old man! What do you expect?
Bella:
Henry's asked me to run away with him.
Mary-Sue:
Your joking!? You did say no right?
Bella:
No.
Mary-Sue:
What about your children!?
Bella:
Cassandra can look after Alexander.
Mary-Sue:
You can't do this! Henry means nothing compared to your family!

Mortimer: What's all the yelling about?
Mary-Sue:
Oh, hello Mortimer.
Mortimer:
Hi Mary. Have you two had another disagreement about global warming?
Mary-Sue:
(Laughs) No not today.
Bella:
Were fine love.
Mortimer:
Eh, ok. Excuse me, I'm off to the toilet. My bowels are playing up again.
Mary-Sue:
Ok.
Bella:
Thanks for telling us that!

Bella: Do you really expect me to stay here with him going on about his bowels, when I could be touring the world with the love of my life!
Mary-Sue:
Love of your life!? You've only known him a few weeks. Mortimer was the love of your life! He'll never forgive you when you come running back, you know?
Bella:
I won't come running back. Henry's rich, probably more rich than Mortimer. Were set up for life.
Mary-Sue:
Please Bella, stop and think about what your planning on doing! It's ridiculous!
Bella:
I've made up my mind.
Mary-Sue:
You bitch! Your a completely selfish bitch!
Bella:
Mary, we've been friends for years. I'll still keep in contact.
Mary-Sue:
Don't bother! I never want to speak to you again! If you can't take my advice now, our friendship means absolutely nothing!
Bella:
Fine, your choice.
Mary-Sue:
You are going to tell them right? Not just leave?
Bella: I don't know.
Mary-Sue:
If you don't tell them, I will.
Bella:
If that's what you want to do then go ahead! I'll be miles away by then. Henry's whisking me off to Paris as soon as I leave.
Mary-Sue:
When?
Bella:
Tonight.
Mary-Sue:
Tonight!? Can't you think about it for a few days, at the least?
Bella:
Goodbye Mary.

Julie: Mary!? What on earth are you wearing? When I told you to get something out of my costume trunk, I meant something sexy!
Bella:
Yeah, I know, but I've got a problem.
Julie:
What?
Bella:
I need some hair dye.
Julie:
Hair dye? You can't get hair dye around here!
Bella:
Then I can't do tonight's show.
Julie:
But I was relying on you. It's too late to find anyone else now.
Bella:
I can't go on than stage looking so bad!
Julie:
Lets have a look.
Bella:
No, I can't show you.
Julie:
(Sighs) I had a bottle of that wretched stuff once. It might still be under my kitchen sink. It's red. It was for a Halloween party.
Bella:
Any colour will do. Please go and look.
Julie:
Right away miss.

Bella: (Whispers) Goodbye Mortimer. I'm sorry. I do love you, you know. I just love him more.

Bella: (Whispers) My darling. My first child. I'll miss you, and I love you. Look after Alex for me.

Bella: (Whispers) My little boy. I'll miss you the most. You'll be fine without me. You'll grow up and be big and strong like you mum. Love you.

Bella: What am I doing? I can't do this! (Cries) I can't leave my family.
(Car horn)
Bella:
Get a grip Bella. Your running away with the man you love!

Henry: I was beginning to think you'd changed your mind.
Bella:
Never in a million years.
Henry:
Good. Paris here we come!

Jim: Ooh mama!
Anne:
Jim!
Willy:
Your once sexy woman Mrs Lothario!
Bella:
Who said I wasn't a Miss big boy?
Michael:
Woo. Get in there Willy!

Cathy: Where on earth did you find her Julie?
Julie:
Its that woman who came into the bar this morning.
Cathy:
Wasn't she blonde then?
Julie:
Yeah. I think her dye must have washed out though. She sounded pretty desperate to get some more too.
Cathy:
Why? What colour is she naturally?
Julie:
Haven't got a clue.
Cathy:
Maybe she's just going grey?
Julie:
Maybe. I sense there's something about her though.
Cathy: Really?
Julie: Yeah. I'm going to keep my eye on her if she's sticking around.

Bella: Goodnight everyone and thanks for watching!
(Claps and cheers).
Julie:
Are you coming back tomorrow night? They love you!
Jim:
We sure do!
Bella:
Then yes, I'll be back!

Bella: (Sighs) Well Bella, you've pulled off another character.

Willy: Are you ok there? Just be careful around that well. It's easy to fall down.
Bella:
Would you die if you fell down?
Willy:
Well, it is dry down there, but it only goes down a few feet. I wouldn't try it though miss.
Bella:
(Laughs) I won't.
Willy:
Your performance was great. Your a great singer, and your very attractive.
Bella:
Thank you, and thanks for all the tips.
Willy:
You deserve them.
Bella:
Do you fancy parting with some more of your money, for my extra special bedroom services?
Willy:
What do you mean miss?
Bella:
(Sighs) Never mind. Night Willy.
Willy:
Goodnight.
