Pleasantview - Series 3 - Episode 22 - A Past Best Forgotten

Darren: Peter, what do you mean by they're missing!? Where are they!?
Darleen:
Oh dear. When did they go missing?
Peter:
I let them out this morning. Quite early. I just thought they'd be grateful for a bit of freedom.
Darren:
Where did they say they were going!?
Darleen:
Stop shouting! It's not helping!
Peter:
She's right Darren, we need to find them! They said they were going to the community centre.
Darleen:
Well let's not waste anytime. We need to go and find them.
Darren:
They won't still be there! They've run away!
Darleen:
What? We need to look for them!
Darren:
Me and Peter will go and look for them. You stay here in case they come back.
Peter:
Do you think it's a good idea for them to come back and find Darleen here?
Peter:
No, your right. You stay here.

Darleen: Maybe we should split up to cover more ground.
Darren:
What, and have you find them alone? No way.
Darleen:
Why would they run away?
Darren:
It's a long story.
Darleen:
I need to know so I can help!
Darren:
Dirk and Sam don't just love each other... they're in love with each other.
Darleen:
What!?
Darren:
They've run away so they can be together, without us trying to stop them.
Darleen:
But they're brothers.
Darren:
They don't care about that.
Darleen:
They know!?
Darren:
Yes, we thought telling them would stop them, but it didn't.
Darleen:
Is it really that wrong for them to want to be together?
Darren:
Your still using, aren't you?
Darleen:
Of course I'm not! I just think that if people are in love they shouldn't be kept apart, even if they are related!

Darleen: (Crying)

oug: Are you alrigh' there me love? That's me bed ya cryin' on, ya see.
Darleen:
I'm sorry.
Doug:
It ain't safe bein' down here at night, ya know? There are some horrid people about. I've had bottles thrown at me and been set on fire in me sleep! Your better off out o' here, me love.
Darleen:
I think I'll take my chances right now.
Doug:
Come on, whatever's happened can't be that bad.
Darleen:
Oh yeah? Have you ever lost your baby before?
Doug:
I'll help ya look for it if ya like.
Darleen:
I've had a miscarriage.
Doug:
I know that, like. I was just tryin' to cheer ya up. I'm sorry for ya.
Darleen:
Sure you are.
Doug:
No, really, a am. Even homeless people have their own story, ya know? It happened to me girl friend a few yar back.
Darleen:
Really?
Doug:
Aye. She left us after that, like. I got on drugs 'cause of it... that's why I'm poor and homeless, ya see?

Darleen: It must of been hard for you, if it led you to drugs.
Doug:
Aye, it was. She was the love of me life, and that child would of been the second love of me life. A lost 'em both. At least ya still got your partner, right?
Darleen:
Sort of. He doesn't feel the same way about losing the baby. Of course he's upset, but he didn't want a second child.
Doug:
Second? Ya shouldn't be complain', like. What's ya first called?
Darleen:
His name is Dirk. You don't understand though, this baby was supposed to be a replacement.
Doug:
For what?
Darleen:
I already have a second son, but he's not mine. I had him for my husbands brother. But now, I just want to be there for him, as his mum. He's mine.
Doug:
Can ya not see him, like?
Darleen:
No, they moved away. Darren, my husband, thought it was for the best when he saw how I was coping with it.
Doug:
A see. Oh no.
Darleen:
One of those horrid people I mentioned are coming. Hide!

Clint: Well if it isn't Dougie, the druggy. Have you got me my money?
Doug:
No, I can't pay again. I'm sorry.
Clint:
A sorry wont cut it Dougie. What did I tell ya last time?
Doug:
Ya said if ya didn't take me money, you'd be takin' me legs.
Clint:
I know ya got money Dougie. Dave saw you doing over the Newbies place the other night.
Doug:
I never! It wasn't me!
Clint:
Your a lier. Pay up, or no more supplies.
Doug:
Ya know I need it Clint. Please.
Clint:
And ya know I need me money.

Clint: Pay up you thieving, lieing little son of a...
Darleen:
STOP! Leave him alone!
Clint:
Oh, who's this Dougie? Your next rape victim?
Doug:
You know I don't do that Clint!
Clint:
It's about the only crime ya don't commit though!
Darleen:
I'll pay! Just leave him alone!
Clint:
Oh yeah? Do you have £300 on you? I don't take credit cards love!
Darleen:
I have £100! I'll pay the rest tomorrow night!
Clint:
Are you serious!? You want to help out this lowlife!
Darleen:
Yes! Just leave. Take this!
Clint:
You're lucky tonight Dougie. Here's your sodding crack! I'll be back tomorrow!

Doug: Ya didn't have to do that, love.
Darleen:
I wanted to help.
Doug:
Ya would of been more helpful to me if you'd not let me get the crack, love.
Darleen:
I'll take it, if you don't want it!
Doug:
Lady, ya do not want to get into taking drugs. Ya got ya family to think about.
Darleen:
Do they work? Does it help with the pain?
Doug:
Well yeah, but..
Darleen:
Just let me try. Please!

Darleen: What happened here? Where did all the woodland go?
Darren:
They cut it down. It was a crime spot, full of dealers and drug addicts. And you were one of them.
Darleen:
You don't have to remind me about that Darren. I'm glad they've cut it all down. Good riddance I say.

Darren: I thought I'd find you here. Stoned out of your skull as usual.
Darleen:
Just go away Darren.
Darren:
Darleen, it's got to stop! Think about Dirk! What is he going to do when his mum dies a drug addict!?
Darleen:
You don't want to be here Darren. There's some nasty pieces of work around.
Darren:
Yeah, and your one of them! Your a disgrace to our family! If your not prepared to go to the clinic I found, then don't bother coming home tonight!

Darren: They're not here! We've looked all over Pleasantview. What are we going to do now?
Darleen:
Were going to have to phone the police Darren. It's all we can do.
Darren:
Your right. It'll be dark within in an hour. I can't believe Peter let them out!
Darleen:
You're both to blame! If you'd given them a bit more freedom it would never of happened.
Darren:
Don't you dare blame me! It's not like you were here to help, were you!? You were too busy in rehab!
Darleen:
I haven't been a patient all these years Darren! I work there now! I help people who are like I used to be!
Darren:
How long have you been off them for?
Darleen:
I've not had any sort of drugs since that day you abandoned me at the clinic...

Darleen: We need to wait for Darren.
Stacy:
Darleen, I'm sorry, but Darren's gone.
Darleen:
What?
Stacy:
He's given up hope.
Darleen:
But, I'm doing really well!
Stacy:
I tried to talk him in to staying, but he wouldn't. He'd made up his mind. He wanted to get home to your son.

Roy: Sorry to interrupt, but Darleen has a phone call. It's her husband.
Darleen:
I knew it! He could never leave me!
Stacy:
Do you want to take the call?
Darleen:
Of course I do!

Darleen: Hi Darren! How could you do that to me. You've realised your mistake, right?
Darren:
No, I haven't.
Darleen:
What? Your coming back aren't you?
Darren:
No, I'm not. As far as me and Dirk are concerned, your dead.
Darleen:
Darren, you can't cut me off like this! I'm going to change!
Darren:
I'm going to tell Dirk you've died of cancer. Good bye Darleen.
Darleen:
No! No! You can't do this! Don't hang up! Darren! No!

Darleen: No! How could you do this to me!? No!

Dirk: Dad, your in the way!
Darren:
Dirk, could you turn that off please.
Dirk:
Why?
Darren:
Remember that mummy is in the hospital?
Dirk:
Yes.
Darren:
Well.. (sighs)... I have some news.

Darren: I'm proud of you. I didn't think you could do it.
Darleen:
Obviously. You wouldn't of left me otherwise. I thought you loved me enough to stay, but I was wrong.
Darren:
I did love you, but I had Dirk to think about! I didn't know how long it would take for you to give up...
Darleen:
You didn't think I'd ever give up!
Darren:
Well, I admit that I was beginning to give up faith in you. We'd been at that clinic for weeks, and you were still using. I didn't want Dirk being brought up with a drug user for a mother.
Darleen:
Let's just get inside and phone the police. They need to be found. I hope they're ok.
Darren:
They will be. Dirk knows how to look after himself and others. You don't have to worry about how he's been brought up Darleen, because I can assure you I've done a good job.
Darleen:
I knew you would. How well does he do in school?
Darren:
He get's straight A's.

Darren: What's wrong? You can't be sad about his grades!
Darleen:
I've missed the most important years of his life. And Sam's. I should of been there for both of them. I just had to sort my life out!
Darren:
I know. I understand. You're here for them now. We just need to find them first.
Darleen:
You're going to let me see them then?
Darren:
Well, it's up to Peter about whether you can see Sam, but you are Dirk's mother, and you've obviously worked hard while you've been away. It's your right to be there for him.
Darleen:
Oh Darren, thank you so much! I can't thank you enough.
Darren:
You don't have to. Come on, we need to hurry.

Darleen: Thanks for coming so quickly.
PC Jones:
That's ok. The sooner we get the facts, the sooner we can get out there looking for your boys. When did the boys go missing?
Peter
: They left the house around ten this morning.
PC Jones:
So they've been missing for over eight hours. Do Dirk or Sam have any enemies?
Peter:
No! We don't think they've been kidnapped or anything like that. We think they might have run away from home.
PC Clark:
What would be their reason's for doing that?
Darleen:
The boys have fallen in love. They want to be together, away from here.
PC Jones:
I see. Do the boys have passports?
Darren:
Yes, but I look after them. I keep them in a drawer upstairs.
PC Clark:
Have you checked they're still there?
Darren:
No, but even if they had them, they couldn't afford to get out of the country.

Peter: (Sighs) Sam has a bank account, with a fair amount of money in it.
PC Clark:
Why's that?
Peter:
I know I shouldn't of done it, but when I was on the verge of bankruptcy I moved quite a lot of money into his account, to avoid it being taken.
PC Clark:
We'll have to report that once we've found your boys Mr Dreamer.
Peter:
I know. I'm sorry.
Darleen:
Darren, you should check the passports have gone. Then the police can notify the airports to stop them leaving the country.
Darren:
Dirk's afraid of flying. He would never get on a plane!
PC Jones:
Mr Dreamer, people will do anything for love.

Dirk: Why did we have to pick the plane that got delayed? Our dad's will be on to the police by now. We've got to get out of the country.
Sam:
Relax. We've only got to wait another twenty minutes. We've just got to hope were in the air before they can stop us.
Dirk:
Maybe we could go by sea.
Sam:
Dirk, stop being such a big wimp. Planes are really safe these days. Much safer than cars anyway.
Dirk:
I suppose were going on a good plane at least.
Sam:
Thanks to dad's money.
Dirk:
Should we go over there and spread out a bit?
Sam:
Yeah, we should rest our eyes for a while. It's been a tiring day.

Darren: This is all my fault.
Darleen:
Its' not. Don't worry. The police will find them. They'll be home before the morning.
Darren:
I hope so. I hope the police won't be bringing them to us in body bags.
Darleen:
They won't. Wherever they are, I'm sure they'll be safe. We should get some sleep.
Darren:
Your right. I'll take the sofa. You can have our bed... my bed.
Darleen:
Yeah, your bed. Thank you. Good night.
Darren: Night.
