Pleasantview - Series 4 - Episode 32 - Housewarming

Leo: Thank you for coming.
Herb:
Thanks for the invite!
Coral:
You have a lovely home.
Leo:
I'll give you the tour, you're our first guests to arrive.
Herb:
Did you get many others to come?
Leo:
I've got the Hodgeson family, the Burb's and you two. It's hardly going to be a full house, but I'm sure we'll still have a good time.
Coral:
I'm sure we will. Where's Luke?
Leo:
He's just setting the food out in the kitchen, I'll lead the way.

Leo: Luke, Herb and Coral are here.
Luke:
Hello.
Coral:
Hello Sweetheart.
Herb:
Alright champ?
Luke:
Yes thank you.
Coral:
Your home really is lovely Leo.
Leo:
Thank you. Its cost a bomb sorting this old house out though, but I think it's been worth it. I'm happy with the results.
Herb:
The food looks great.
Leo:
Feel free to tuck in, because I just told everyone to arrive anytime after eight, so they could be a while.
(Door bell rings)
Leo:
(Laughs) Or maybe they won't. Excuse me. Luke, get the Oldies some champagne glasses.
Luke:
Ok dad.
Herb: (Whispers) Champagne? You hear that Coral, this guys loaded.
Coral: Ooh.

Andrew: What on earth was your mother thinking, taking in some homeless child?
Lilith:
He's not just any old child, we know him.
Andrew:
Well that's fair enough, but if the press hear about this they're going to have a field day!
Lilith:
Then don't let them find out. Besides, this is nothing compared to what's coming next.
Andrew:
(Sighs) Do I really want to hear this?
Lilith:
My mums not stopping at taking Beau in, she's out there now looking for his drug addict brother.
Andrew:
Drug addict!? You're pulling my leg, right?
Lilith:
'Fraid not mate. Your job just got a lot more stressful.
Andrew:
Jeez. I think I need to sit down.

Lilith: Come on, it's not that bad.
Andrew:
Your mum is the mayor Lilith! If she wasn't and wanted to take drug addicts into her home, then fine, but as it stands this is not going to be good for her work. Even if we do manage to keep this under wraps, by some miracle, she's still going to be a lot less focused on the job! This town is going under a lot of changes, and she can't deal with this right now.
Lilith:
I think my mums tougher than you think Andrew. She's been through plenty of hardships before. She can handle the strain.
Andrew:
(Sighs) I hope you're right, for your mothers sake.
Lilith: I hope she's alright out there.
Andrew: Where has she gone to?
Lilith: She didn't say, she just said she thinks she knows where he'll be. If it's a place where drug addicts hang out then I imagine it's not going to be very safe. I hope she's ok.
Andrew: Like you said, your mum's tough. She'll be alright.

John: So what work is it you do Leo? You must be a pretty big earner to afford this place.
Leo:
Oh, just a bit of this and a bit of that really.. mainly import and export.
John:
Hmm, I've never really looked into that myself before. I own the local community centre, but I'm looking to start a new business venture... would you recommend import and export?
Leo:
(Laughs) Well..
Jennifer:
(Sighs) What is it about men and business Coral?
Coral:
(Laughs).
Leo:
Sorry ladies. We'll have plenty of time to talk business later John.
John:
(Laughs) Ok.
Leo:
The Hodgesons are really taking their time. I feel a bit rude eating without them.

Katy: Dad, mum told you to get ready over half an hour ago!
Liam:
I am ready.
Katy:
You are not going out looking like that!
Liam:
Its only a housewarming, not a bloody ball!
Katy:
You only get one chance to make a first impression dad.
Liam:
Well I guess they'll see the real me then.
Katy:
You're letting down the whole family!

Maria: Right, we ready?
Katy:
I am, but dad needs to get changed.
Maria:
If your father wants to go looking like a slob then that's his choice.
Katy:
Mum! Tell him he has to get changed.
Liam:
Oh grow up Katy.
Maria:
Right let's go, Tommy's outside.
Katy:
He better be wearing that shirt I got out for him.
Maria:
Nah, he said it was itchy.
Katy:
I don't know why I bother! Men!

Ronald: Thank you for inviting me in.
Cassandra:
Well, you are my brother.. I can't believe it.
Ronald:
I can't believe my.. our.. father is dead.
Cassandra:
I'm sorry you had a wasted journey.
Ronald:
A wasted journey? Of course I haven't, I'm sitting with my half sister! I mean, sure I was expecting to meet my father too, but meeting my sister is pretty big for me too. I've never had any brother or sisters before. This is amazing!
Cassandra:
It is for me too. I thought I had no one left.
Ronald:
So did I, that's why I was looking for my father.

Tony: Babe, you coming back to bed? I've got a raging..
Cassandra:
Tony!
Tony:
Oh. Sorry, hi.
Cassandra:
Tony, this is my half brother, Ronald.
Tony:
Eh? You never mentioned you had a half brother.
Cassandra:
I didn't know until a few minutes ago. My father... although I can't imagine him doing it, must of cheated on my mother.
Tony:
And you're definitely right about this, pal?
Ronald:
Well Mortimer's name is on my birth certificate.
Tony:
Can I see it?
Cassandra:
Sorry.. Tony's a police officer. He's naturally suspicious.
Ronald:
He has every right to be. Here.
Tony:
Thanks. I'll just take this in the kitchen for a better look. Cassandra, come with me.
Cassandra:
Oh, ok. Ronald, would you like a drink while I'm up? Tea? Coffee?
Ronald:
I could do with something a bit stronger to be honest.
Cassandra:
(Laughs) I'll see what I can find.

Tony: Honestly Cassandra, what on earth were you thinking inviting some stranger into your home? Are you forgetting what happened to your brother last year after he met some stranger in the park? Are you forgetting about getting drugged and raped!?
Cassandra:
Shhh! Keep your voice down!
Tony:
You've got to be more careful.
Cassandra:
He seems nice enough.
Tony:
You should of called for me we could of both checked the certificate together.
Cassandra:
Is it real?
Tony:
Yes, it seems genuine, but that's not the point. You could of been attacked and robbed and I would of been completely unaware upstairs.
Cassandra:
Ok, I get it! Stop having a go. I've just found out I have another brother! That's the important point here.
Tony:
I know. Do you want me to leave?
Cassandra:
That's up to you. I want to have a proper chat with him. I need to know more about my dad's affair. I don't really want to remember him as a two timing piece of scum.
Tony:
Ok babe, just call me if you need me.
Cassandra:
I will. Thanks.

Cassandra: Sorry about that.
Ronald:
That's alright, your dog found me.
Cassandra:
It looks like he likes you.
Ronald:
I really love dogs. So, was that your husband?
Cassandra:
Just my boyfriend.
Ronald:
Ah right.
Cassandra:
How about you, are you married, single?
Ronald:
I'm divorced.
Cassandra:
Oh, what happened?
Ronald:
She cheated on me with a younger guy.
Cassandra:
Oh dear, I'm sorry.
Ronald:
I'm not. I'm better off without her. I can't stand cheaters.
Cassandra:
Even though our father was one?
Ronald:
Well he's excused for that, just not for not being there while I was growing up.
Cassandra:
It must of been hard without a father.
Ronald:
Yeah, it was.. especially when my mum went through a number of drunk and abusive men instead.
Cassandra:
It sounds like it hasn't been an easy ride for you.
Ronald:
Which is why I want a fresh start. Right here, in Pleasantview.

Ronald: I know this is going to sound a little sudden, since we've only just met, but I need a place to stay and was wondering...
Cassandra:
Of course you can stay!
Ronald:
Really!? Don't you at least want to think about it first?
Cassandra:
I thought I had no family left and then you show up on my door step. There's no thinking to be done. You're staying here, we're going to get to know each other and we're going to have an amazing Christmas.
Ronald:
Thank you so much! I really want to get to know you too. I've been alone for too long.

Peter: Why did you have to interfere? Why did you go and turn Rachael away?
Darleen: I didn't want her seeing you.
Peter:
Why!? You're supposed to be caring for me and I want to see Rachael. I never stopped loving her!
Darleen: Don't be so ridiculous!
Peter: Look.. Darleen, I need some company. I need to feel loved.
Darleen: Your family love you!
Peter: We both know Dirk hates me because I survived the plane crash when his father doesn't, and Sam hates the fact that I can't be a proper father to him. You're just my dead brother's wife!
Darleen: And the mother of your son!
Peter: Well.. yeah, fine, but I still want to see Rachael. Look at it this way, it means a lot to me that I see her, and you want me to be happy, right?
Darleen: Of course.
Peter: Well can you set me the laptop up for after dinner, and I'll invite her back.
Darleen: I.. I suppose.
Peter: Thank you.
Darleen: You're not being left alone with her though.
Peter: Why not?
Darleen: Because you were hinting at suicide earlier. You can't do it yourself, but for all I know she might be the one you've asked to help.
Peter:
Was that your main worry?
Darleen: Yes.
Peter: Darleen, that just slipped out. I didn't mean it. I couldn't leave you three, even if I am stuck like this.
Darleen: Seriously? Your not just saying that?
Peter:
No. I'm afraid you're stuck with me.
Darleen: Good (smiles).

Jennifer: It seems everyone has a kids around here except us. I want another child.
John:
What?
Jennifer:
I want a baby John.
John:
Jen.. I don't think this is the place to discuss this.
Jennifer:
Well I think we need to talk about this. The business is doing ok, it's not like we can't afford a baby, and we're not getting any younger. The time is right.
John:
Jen, this is a party, will you please just drop this, for now?
Jennifer:
(Sighs) We'll talk about this when we get home.

Leo: So how are you both liking Pleasantview?
Liam:
It's a bit too quiet compared to the city.
Maria:
Not in our house it ain't.
Leo:
(Laughs) Kids, eh?
Maria:
No, I was thinking more along the lines of Liam (laughs).
Leo:
(Laughs).
Liam:
Ha ha.
Leo:
What brought on the sudden move from the city to the suburbs?
Maria:
Well..

Liam: (Cries) You're a right bitch, I hope you know that!
Maria:
I do, I do and I'm so sorry Liam. It was a mistake!
Liam:
You're sorry!? You think an apology is enough!?

Leo: Maria? You still with us?
Maria:
..Oh, sorry. Well we just fancied a change really.
Leo:
(Laughs) You really love your day dreaming, don't you?
Maria:
Yeah, I often drift off.
Liam:
Why did you move here Leo?
Leo:
Just for a fresh start, after my wife, Dawn, died.
Liam:
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.
Leo:
Cheers.

Rory: I've already given you enough time Dustin!
Dustin:
I just need one more day. I can get you the money!
Rory:
You better, 'cos until you do they'll be no more junk!
Dustin:
Please! I need it!
Rory:
Well perhaps this will make you want to pay up a bit quicker in future! I'll find you tomorrow and I expect my money! Oh, and one more thing...

Rory: They'll be no more warnings! Do you really want that pretty face of yours messing up?
Dustin:
I promise you, I'll get the money!
Rory:
You better!

Rory: And it better be all of it. I wont accept anymore of your excuses!
Mary-Sue:
Oi! Get away from him! I'll pay whatever he owes!
Rory:
Don't interfere lady! This is his debt!
Mary-Sue:
Just leave him alone!
Dustin:
Just go! I'm alright.
Mary-Sue:
Absolutely not. I'll phone the police!
Rory:
Fine, whatever! Like I said, I'll find you tomorrow Dustin!

Mary-Sue: Are you alright?
Dustin:
What's it look like!?
Mary-Sue:
I know.. stupid question. You look terrible.
Dustin: Not as bad as I'll be when he finds me tomorrow.
Mary-Sue:
How much do you owe?
Dustin:
A couple of hundred. Why are you here?
Mary-Sue:
I'm looking for you.
Dustin:
What!? Why!?
Mary-Sue:
I found Beau at the dump and heard you might be in trouble.
Dustin:
You can't help me.
Mary-Sue:
What are you using Dustin?
Dustin:
I.. they made me.. it's not my fault.
Mary-Sue:
Are you injecting? ...Heroin?
Dustin:
(Nods)
Mary-Sue:
Oh my days.

Mary-Sue: It's going to be alright. We'll get you some help.
Dustin:
Why... what makes you want to help a drug addict?
Mary-Sue:
Your mother wouldn't want me to stand back and do nothing now, would she?
Dustin:
It's not your responsibility though.
Mary-Sue:
I want to help.
Dustin:
I'm beyond help.
Mary-Sue:
It's not too late to undo your msitakes.
Dustin:
How did you know where to find me?
Mary-Sue:
This is the spot where your mother jumped, isn't it?
Dustin:
Jumped!? She was murdered! This guy killed her, and I.. I.. (cries) saw it happen.

Mary-Sue: Come on, you're coming home with me. When did you last see your brother?
Dustin:
I can't remember. It's been months. Is he alright?
Mary-Sue:
Well, the cold hasn't done him much good.
Dustin:
It's my fault. I shouldn't of left him.
Mary-Sue:
Hey, you've been through a lot. This is no one's fault.
Dustin:
Is he going to be alright?
Mary-Sue:
Yeah, I'm sure he'll be back to normal once he gets a warm meal inside him.. it looks like you could do with some food too. Come on, my car's just around the corner.
Dustin
: You'll be lucky if it's still there.
Mary-Sue:
(Laughs) It better be.

Katy: Leo's a bit of alright, isn't he mum? He's loaded as well.
Maria:
He's also ten years older than you.
Katy:
I'm not talking about for me, for you!
Maria:
Katy! Firstly I don't want to leave your father, and secondly Leo lost his wife not so long ago, so I expect you to have a little more respect for him!
Katy:
Alright alright! Don't go all moody on me. Do you think you're on the menopause?
Maria:
Your heading the right way for a slap Katy. Woman don't go through the menopause until they're about fifty!
Katy:
Coral must of been through it. I'm going to ask her about it.
Maria:
You'll do no such thing.
Katy:
Jeez, I'm just trying to spice up this party a bit.
(Doorbell rings)
Katy:
Ooh, maybe that's some fit men arriving.
Maria:
You know, not every party is a pulling opportunity.

Leo: What are you doing here? I told you to never come to the house.
Mick:
I know, but I couldn't reach you on your phone.
Leo:
That's because I'm in the middle of a party. I told you that.
Mick:
I know, but you'll want to hear this.
Leo:
What is it?
Mick:
We've lost our latest shipment.
Leo:
Lost?
Mick:
It never set off. It was stopped at their end.
Leo:
Have you contacted him?
Mick:
I thought you'd want to do that.
Leo:
He's not going to be happy.

Herb: Who on earth wears sunglasses when there's two foot of snow.. and at night!?
Coral:
Herb, come away from there! Don't be so nosey.
Herb:
There's something dodgy about him, that's for sure.
Coral:
Herb!
Herb:
And Leo knows him, so that means..
Coral:
Are you listening to me!?
Herb:
Oh sorry flower,  but..
Coral:
I think it's time we left. Come on, lets go and say goodbye to Luke.
Herb:
Ok dear.

Dustin: I've missed you so much Beau.
Beau:
I've missed you too. I wish you didn't leave me there.
Dustin:
I know, and I am so so sorry. I will never ever leave you again.
Beau:
Do you promise?
Dustin:
I promise.

Andrew: Mary-Sue..
Mary-Sue:
Here comes the the lecture.
Andrew:
Actually, there isn't going to be a lecture. I think what you've done tonight is amazing and I admire you for it.
Mary-Sue:
Eh?
Andrew: You heard (laughs).
Mary-Sue:
It was just surprising to hear it from your mouth.
Andrew: I know. To be honest seeing what you've done for these boys makes me think how successful our new scheme to house the homeless is going to be. It makes me proud to have this job.
Mary-Sue:
Same here. Where on earth did those pyjamas come from?
Andrew: I went out and brought them.
Mary-Sue:
You're an absolute diamond.

Luke: What game shall we play?
Tommy:
None, all your games are for sissies.
Luke:
No they're not!
Tommy:
Er, yeah they are. And your room's for girls.
Luke:
No it's not! Dad says I have a grown up bedroom!
Tommy:
Yeah right man, you should see my room. I've got black walls and ceiling, a double bed, loads of posters and all sorts.
Luke:
Poster's look messy.
Tommy:
(Sighs) I think it's time to get out of this place. Bye!

Tommy: Mum, I'm bored, where's dad?
Maria:
Your dad and Katy have gone home already.
Tommy:
That's not fair, I want to go home. This place sucks.
Maria:
Tommy, you can't say that!
Leo:
(Laughs) You can always rely on kids to be brutally honest with these things.
Maria:
Oh, not at all. I've had a good evening.
Leo:
You're just being polite.. but thanks (laughs).
Maria:
No seriously, its been nice meeting you and Luke.
Leo:
It was nice meeting your family too.
Maria:
We'll have to have the two of you over some time.
Leo:
That would be nice.
Tommy:
Mum, can we please go!
Maria:
Yes, alright! Sorry about him Leo. Thanks for a great evening.
Leo:
Anytime.

Tommy: That was the worse party ever.
Maria:
Don't be rude Tommy. We don't get invited out often. You should at least try and enjoy yourself.
Tommy:
I did try, but Luke is a right..
Maria:
He's a lovely young lad. You could learn a lot from him.
Tommy:
Whatever. Mum, can I paint my room black?
Maria:
Black? What on earth for?
Tommy:
I told Luke it was black.
Maria:
Well you should start telling the truth.
Tommy:
Is that a yes?
Maria:
(Sighs) Ask your father.

Ronald: So, you and Tony, how long have you been with him?
Cassandra:
Almost a year now.
Ronald:
Wow. Do you think there might be wedding bells ringing for you and him at some point soon?
Cassandra:
Well, don't mention this, but recently he's been being a little sneaky, and I've got a funny feeling he's going to propose on Christmas day!
Ronald:
Ooh, how romantic!

Tony: That was amazing.
Tina:
It always is. So much better than what that nerd can do for you.
Tony:
Don't call her that.
Tina:
Why? Why are you still with her? You're in my bed nearly every night.
Tony:
She still needs me.
Tina:
We've been over this Tony. Just because you found her brother dead does not make you responsible for her feelings! You don't love her, you feel sorry for her! You've been telling me you're going to leave her for months!
Tony:
I will.. soon.
Tina:
It's always 'soon' with you, the only time it's 'now' is when you show up at my door horny. I've had enough of waiting to be with you. You better dump her tomorrow or I'll go and do it for you.
Tony:
Babe, please. Lets just leave it a bit longer.
Tina:
You've had long enough. Switch your light off.
