- 1. How do you do, Auntie Eleanor?
- 2. Well, hello, Mabel. What a lovely house.
- 3. Shall we go read together in the garden?
- 4. Mabel!
- 5. Coming, Mama!
- 6. When will they be here, Papa?
- 7. Any minute now, Mabel.
- 8. Are they nice people?
- 9. No, they're not.
- 10. How dis…
- 11. Penny, they're here.
- 12. Damn it!
- 13. Raymond, it's very muddy out here.
My feet are getting wet.
- 14. Another girl.
- 15. Her name's Isobel.
- 16. Well, I can't see a thing.
- 17. Wait your turn, Georgie.
We're packed in here like cattle.
- 18. How old are you?
- 19. I'll be nine in June.
- 20. Hmm, you look very small for your age.
- 21. Would you like to hold her?
- 22. No.
- 23. I'm cold.
- 24. Care for a sandwich?
- 25. No.
- 26. Sandwich?
- 27. Uh, no.
- 28. Did you make those curtains behind you?
- 29. Yes. Yes, I did.
- 30. She made my quilt too. And Isobel's shawl.
- 31. Poor children.
- 32. Why, isn't that the Mayhew commode?
- 33. So it is.
- 34. Well, from the lofty splendor
of the winter salon
- 35. to this gloomy corner of the world.
- 36. How we've fallen.
- 37. It belonged to my father.
- 38. Ha! Your father, worthless drunk!
- 39. Always whimpering. Whimpering about money.
- 40. Whimpering about debts.
He was a whimperer.
- 41. Gambled away everything.
- 42. Oh, not the Mayhew commode!
- 43. And you, Raymond,
with your education and opportunities.
- 44. It shocks me
- 45. that you still haven't managed
to lift yourself out of this squalor.
- 46. I see your father in you, Raymond.
It's a weakness.
- 47. Night night, Isobel.
- 48. They're very strange people,
aren't they, Mama?
- 49. They have their ways, but they are family.
- 50. There goes your father.
- 51. Is he sad, Mama?
- 52. He should be fine in the morning.
He just needs some fresh air.
- 53. Damn it!
- 54. You pathetic pig!
- 55. Look at you.
- 56. Eleanor was right.
- 57. Huh?
- 58. Huh?
- 59. I'm hungry.
- 60. Something amazing just happened.
- 61. A miracle!
- 62. What is? What are you saying, Raymond?
- 63. What happened?
- 64. Everything's changed.
- 65. Everything.
- 66. Fantastic. Mmm.
- 67. Wine. Penny, wine!
- 68. Wine?
- 69. Honestly, Raymond,
I wish you would just tell me—
- 70. Shouldn't we wake Papa?
- 71. No, Mabel. Let him sleep it off.
- 72. Ah!
- 73. Good day, madam. My name is Thomas.
- 74. I'm here on behalf
of my employer, Mr. Van Schoonbeek.
- 75. I'm here to discuss
the terms of the agreement.
- 76. Agreement?
- 77. Um, your husband spoke
with my employer last night, madam.
- 78. There was an agreement.
- 79. An agreement with who?
- 80. Mr. Van Schoonbeek.
He's an architect of great renown.
- 81. He's graciously offered his services
to build a house for you and your family.
- 82. Sorry, we're not in a financial position
for anything like that.
- 83. My husband must have gotten carried away.
- 84. You misunderstand, madam. It is a gift.
- 85. My employer has acquired the land
surrounding your cottage.
- 86. It is here that the house will be built.
- 87. You will come into possession of the land
as well as the estate upon its completion.
- 88. There is one condition.
- 89. The family must relinquish these premises
and take up residence in the house.
- 90. And that is all?
He doesn't want anything in return?
- 91. Money is no object to my employer, madam.
- 92. He is a great artist.
- 93. He desires nothing more
than creative satisfaction.
- 94. This Van Schoonbeek
was a friend of my father's.
- 95. He said we would be
the envy for miles around.
- 96. A beacon of light on the hill, Penny.
- 97. Regrettably, Mr. Van Schoonbeek
is a rather impatient man.
- 98. As such, we'll need
your permission in writing today.
- 99. Yes, I'll…
- 100. Well, that's excellent.
- 101. So, when do you expect the work to begin?
- 102. Oh, I expect they've already started, sir.
- 103. Mr. Van Schoonbeek
doesn't like to dillydally.
- 104. Well,
- 105. here we are.
- 106. Come on.
- 107. Unbelievable.
- 108. Magnificent.
- 109. Ah! Good morning, Mr. Thomas.
- 110. You've brought some of your possessions.
- 111. Yes, just a few things.
- 112. The house is fully furnished, sir.
- 113. Mr. Van Schoonbeek
specifically designed every piece himself.
- 114. Oh, but I have pieces here that have been
in my family for generations.
- 115. Of course.
I understand completely.
- 116. I'll have the men
store them somewhere secure.
- 117. Through here, please.
If you'd care to follow me.
- 118. Look at those ceilings.
- 119. That's an interesting color.
- 120. This corridor leads to the sitting room,
library, various closets,
- 121. the billiard room, guest rooms.
- 122. The west wing staircase.
- 123. And here we have the withdrawing room.
- 124. You can settle down here for the day
if it pleases you.
- 125. Oh my. Look at that fireplace.
- 126. Look at this sofa!
- 127. No curtains?
- 128. A sewing machine!
- 129. Isn't it amazing?
- 130. Such fine material.
- 131. In the room opposite,
you'll find the dining room.
- 132. A selection of dishes
will be provided on a daily basis.
- 133. I shall take my leave now.
Good day, sir, madams.
- 134. Thank you, Mr. Thomas.
- 135. Oh, delicious!
- 136. Mmm, isn't it?
- 137. I'll never have to cook again.
- 138. Cooking?
It's a bloody waste of time.
- 139. Who makes all this food?
- 140. Our servants, I suppose.
- 141. Ha.
- 142. Now, look at that.
- 143. How beautiful.
- 144. Mama. Isobel, she's getting tired.
- 145. Hmm?
- 146. That's nice, Mabel.
- 147. Come on, Isobel.
- 148. Good night, Mama.
- 149. Good night, Papa.
- 150. Good night, Mabel.
- 151. Night night.
- 152. Look at that!
- 153. Our house.
- 154. Huh.
- 155. Come on, Isobel. Let's go.
- 156. Mr. Van Schoon…
- 157. It's… it is someone… someone… someone…
- 158. It's not just me. Not just me.
- 159. Mr. Thomas!
- 160. What happened to the stairs?
- 161. Good morning, madam.
- 162. Uh, Mr. Van Schoonbeek
is making some minor adjustments.
- 163. You'll find a provisional passage
in the billiard room.
- 164. Thank you, Mr. Thomas.
- 165. Oh.
- 166. Morning, Mama.
- 167. Mama?
- 168. Mama? Mama.
- 169. Oh!
- 170. I…
- 171. …must have fallen asleep.
- 172. Come here, Isobel.
- 173. There was a man outside my window.
We can't see outside anymore.
- 174. Um, Mabel, I've got so much work to do.
- 175. Go find your father.
I'll see what there is for breakfast.
- 176. But, Mama!
- 177. No, Isobel, don't touch that.
- 178. Morning.
- 179. We've just moved in.
- 180. Papa!
- 181. Mabel! Look at this.
- 182. Our home!
- 183. What are they doing?
- 184. Well, I suppose they need the material.
- 185. Ah! Mr. Thomas.
- 186. Good evening.
Mr. Van Schoonbeek has a request to make.
- 187. Oh! What's that?
- 188. He would very much like
for you to accept these as a gift.
- 189. Oh my!
- 190. Please, take your time.
- 191. I'll wait here.
- 192. These are extraordinary.
- 193. Ah yes. Very good.
- 194. It's not too bold, do you think?
- 195. Oh, no, sir. No, no, no. Not at all.
Why don't you see for yourself?
- 196. They're wonderful.
- 197. Yes, and so modern.
- 198. I'm glad you like them.
- 199. Mr. Van Schoonbeek
has specifically created these garments
- 200. to complement his architectural vision.
- 201. You look foolish.
- 202. Both of you.
- 203. Mabel!
- 204. Why on earth would you say such a thing?
- 205. I'd like you to apologize.
- 206. Now, Mabel!
- 207. I'm sorry.
- 208. I hate this house! I hate it!
- 209. I wish we'd never left our home.
- 210. Isobel! Why aren't you asleep?
- 211. Wait, where are you going?
- 212. Isobel, come back!
- 213. Let's go back home.
We… we shouldn't be here.
- 214. Isobel!
- 215. Careful!
- 216. Wait right there. I'm coming.
- 217. You want to go in there?
- 218. Our home.
- 219. My books.
- 220. My doll's house!
- 221. "One day, Princess Esme woke up
- 222. to find everyone in the kingdom
had fallen asleep."
- 223. "She sometimes wondered
whether it was she who was actually asleep
- 224. while everyone else was awake."
- 225. You're hungry, aren't you?
- 226. Little bit.
- 227. What's happened here?
- 228. Uh, madam. Um, Mr. Van Schoonbeek
is very pleased with your fine work.
- 229. - Say, Mr. Thomas?
- 230. You wouldn't happen to know
what's wrong with this fireplace?
- 231. I just can't seem to get it going.
- 232. I understand, sir.
- 233. Um, as it happens, I have something here
you might find useful.
- 234. That's my old chair.
- 235. Indeed, it was stored away.
- 236. We were wondering
whether it might still be of use to you?
- 237. I'm not sure I actually need it anymore,
to be honest.
- 238. We have so many beautiful chairs now.
- 239. Uh, y… yes, indeed, sir.
- 240. I know what to do with it.
- 241. If you find yourself running low,
there's plenty more in the basement.
- 242. The basement.
- 243. Yes.
- 244. Thank you, Mr. Thomas.
- 245. Listen.
- 246. Someone's there.
- 247. Papa!
Oh, it's Papa!
- 248. Papa! Help! We don't know where to go!
- 249. We're getting hungry!
- 250. Papa!
- 251. - We have to find a way downstairs.
- Right away.
- 252. Mr. Thomas! We're lost.
We can't find the stairs.
- 253. Mabel, Isobel, there aren't any stairs!
- 254. He's changed everything again!
- 255. I don't want this anymore.
- 256. I'm just… I'm just an actor.
- 257. He gives me a script!
- 258. I have to say things to you and do things!
- 259. And I just can't anymore!
I just can't! I just—
- 260. I don't know where to go, Isobel.
- 261. I'm lost.
- 262. Mama?
- 263. My doll's house.
- 264. My little girl.
- 265. Papa!
- 266. Mama!
- 267. Leave, Mabel.
- 268. Get away from here.
- 269. Ah!
- 270. Ah! Oh! Ah!
- 271. Leave, Mabel!
- 272. Please!
- 273. Mabel…
- 274. Ah!
- 275. …save Isobel.
- 276. Ah!
- 277. Derek, can you hear me?
- 278. Yes. Hmm.
- 279. Listen, Derek.
- 280. Because of the erratic nature
of redevelopment and budgetary pressures,
- 281. I've had to let the construction guys go.
- 282. So, just deliver the kitchen ASAP.
- 283. Let me install it myself, all right?
- 284. But let me say this.
I will be expecting some reimbursement.
- 285. If not on this job,
then on my next refurb.
- 286. I mean, it's the least that you can do.
- 287. Hmm. Yeah. Yeah.
- 288. Yes.
- 289. It would be a shame
to ruin this relationship.
- 290. Now let's leave it at that,
shall we, Derek?
- 291. Excellent.
- 292. Fine. Sure. Yeah.
- 293. Difficult phone call.
I'll talk to you soon, Derek.
- 294. Yes.
- 295. No.
- 296. I would like to talk to Erica Stephens
in Business Loans.
- 297. Erica Stephens.
- 298. Business…
- 299. Well, I have
20 to 25 very eager cash buyers.
- 300. And while I'd always say
that there are no certainties in life,
- 301. in this case, Erica,
I'm pretty bloody certain
- 302. I'll be calling you with good news
directly after the viewing.
- 303. I will call.
- 304. I promise.
- 305. …Sarah Arnold,
the senior economist
- 306. at the Economics Foundation.
- 307. Hi, Sarah, good morning to you.
- 308. Good morning.
- 309. You might say,
"It's not a good morning, Vanessa."
- 310. "It's a horrible morning."
- 311. You just announced there's a recession
on top of everything else.
- 312. How significant is it
- 313. when it's officially designated
- 314. What does it mean essentially?
What do they have to base such a thing on?
- 315. So, um, a technical recession,
which is what this is,
- 316. is based on two quarters of falls in GDP.
- 317. So this… this record falling GDP
of 20%… uh, just over 20%,
- 318. which is the largest quarterly contraction
in the UK economy
- 319. since records began in 1955…
- 320. …with the Office of National Statistics—
- 321. That's made it much worse.
You realize that, right? Terrible.
- 322. Right.
- 323. Love you.
- 324. Yes!
- 325. Oh yeah.
- 326. Ooh!
- 327. Oh yeah!
- 328. Ooh, ooh, ooh!
- 329. Woo! Woo, woo! Woo!
- 330. Ah.
- 331. Hey, did you get the photo?
- 332. Isn't it incredible?
- 333. I told Derek I just saved myself £3,000.
- 334. Yeah, piss off. That's what I told him.
- 335. And you know, yesterday,
- 336. I had three new potential buyers
register online for the viewing.
- 337. Hey, I wanna send you
some hotel ideas for the Maldives.
- 338. We deserve it, right?
- 339. Yeah, of course we do, sweetheart.
- 340. Yeah, of course. Sorry.
Bye, sweetie. Miss you.
- 341. Oh!
- 342. …wasp and bee nest removal.
- 343. Squirrel control. Bedbug.
Flea and mite control.
- 344. Mole and rabbit removal.
Ants, cockroaches, and other insects.
- 345. What do fur beetles look like?
- 346. What types of fur beetles are there?
- 347. So, what actually are fur beetles?
- 348. What damage do fur beetles cause?
- 349. How do you get rid of fur beetles?
- 350. Fur beetles are persistent pests
- 351. that can eat at your carpets,
clothing, and, in fact, all fabrics.
- 352. Getting rid of fur beetles
is a real challenge.
- 353. On seeing signs of infestation,
including larvae and brown fecal pellets,
- 354. take immediate action.
- 355. The larvae of the fur beetle
do the biggest—
- 356. Right!
- 357. Yeah. Yeah. You like it?
- 358. You like it, do you?
You like it. Come on then.
- 359. You're going down.
You're going down. You're going down!
- 360. You're going down. Yeah?
- 361. Take it! Take it!
- 362. Ooh, ooh!
- 363. Yeah, yeah, yeah!
- 364. Shit!
- 365. Oof! Ooh!
- 366. You bast— You fu—
- 367. Hi, darling. It's me.
- 368. It's the biggest day of my life today.
- 369. If you could be thinking of me,
you know, maybe say a little prayer,
- 370. I'd really appreciate it.
- 371. Uh…
- 372. Hello?
- 373. Come on.
- 374. Whoa!
- 375. Come on!
- 376. What?
- 377. No.
- 378. What is that… What?
- 379. No! Listen to me!
- 380. I got someone else's food.
Don't you understand?
- 381. I'm hosting an event where people
are expecting canapés and champagne.
- 382. All I've got is
instant noodles and energy drinks!
- 383. Oh Christ!
- 384. Welcome. Welcome.
- 385. Hi.
- 386. Wha…
- 387. What? God!
- 388. Chamonix has become
terribly plebeian now.
- 389. Yeah. It's like a supermarket.
- 390. The size is okay,
but the layout is just confusing.
- 391. Don't you think?
- 392. Daddy, Daddy, look at me.
- 393. Oh! Oh dear.
- 394. Hmm. Oh.
- 395. Oh, Isobel. Shh.
- 396. Right.
- 397. Now, for me, the sitting/dining room
- 398. is the beating heart of the house.
- 399. It's a place to rewind
after a long, stressful day.
- 400. Comforting, luxurious.
A family room, you could call it.
- 401. Just to reiterate,
- 402. fittings and furnishings
are negotiable in the price.
- 403. But I think, like me,
you appreciate excellence,
- 404. and that is what is being presented
to you this afternoon.
- 405. I think we can all imagine ourselves
stepping out onto the patio
- 406. and having a chilled glass of wine
in the evening.
- 407. Maybe some snacks in a bowl.
- 408. Would you please shut the door?
- 409. Canapé?
- 410. Uh, no, thanks.
- 411. Oh.
- 412. Come on, darling. Let's go.
- 413. Get yourself… get yourself together.
- 414. Come on. Come on.
- 415. Right.
- 416. Yeah. Oh… Okay. Okay!
- 417. Carry on. Carry on. Enjoy yourselves.
- 418. I call this kitchen "The World's Kitchen"
- 419. because of the participation
of so many countries
- 420. in its design and inception.
- 421. You'll all have noticed
the gray veining in the central island.
- 422. The very last marble to be quarried
from the Carrara region in Italy.
- 423. Pretty special.
- 424. We're walking upon
Galala marble from Egypt.
- 425. You can feel that ancient history,
- 426. You can almost hear the Egyptians.
- 427. The sleek cabinets are Scandinavian
but manufactured in Germany.
- 428. So, finesse but also durability.
- 429. As in all the rooms,
lighting can be operated
- 430. through your smartphone
or a virtual assistant of your choice,
- 431. whereupon you can access
any number of tonal colors.
- 432. But really, the pièce de résistance
of not just the kitchen
- 433. but the entire house, in my opinion,
- 434. is that one thing that none of us
can live without these days.
- 435. Now, you all probably noticed
that we had a situation with the catering,
- 436. which I do apologize for.
- 437. But even without a chicken
- 438. and as a statement of the person you are
or the person that you want to be,
- 439. I think we can all see
the majesty of this,
- 440. this exquisite kitchen appliance.
- 441. The Châteaux Rotisserie Oven.
- 442. Mmm. Ah!
- 443. Um, the… the Wi-Fi seems to be acting up.
- 444. Ow!
- 445. We love
what you have done to the house.
- 446. You do?
- 447. Very, very much.
- 448. Is the furniture included
in the higher price?
- 449. Yes.
- 450. Wonderful.
- 451. Can we ask you some specific questions?
- 452. Yes, of course.
Uh, ask me anything at all.
- 453. Is that a crepe weave fabric
on the couches?
- 454. I have the brochure
in my office. I can check.
- 455. What building insulation
have you used in the house?
- 456. Natural fibrous materials?
- 457. It's a mixture
of wool, paper, and cotton, actually.
- 458. Oh. Nice.
- 459. Oh. Uh…
- 460. Can you excuse me for a second, please?
- 461. Yes, bye. Bye. I'll be here if you, uh…
- 462. Delectable rugs.
- 463. So insulated
- 464. and… and comfortable.
- 465. All good?
- 466. What funny shoes.
- 467. You should take them off.
No need for them now.
- 468. Yeah, I guess you're right.
- 469. Can we have a look at the show bedroom?
- 470. Yeah, it's just through there. Feel free.
- 471. I'll be downstairs
if you need anything at all. Just call.
- 472. We're very interested in your house.
- 473. That's great news.
- 474. Extremely interested.
- 475. Yes!
- 476. Now where is that little shit?
- 477. Come on. Come to…
- 478. Oh Christ!
- 479. Come on then.
- 480. Just bounce.
- 481. Hello?
- 482. Hello?
- 483. Hello?
- 484. Oh.
- 485. What are you doing?
- 486. We thought we'd turn in.
- 487. What? You mean sleep here?
- 488. Well, it is a bedroom.
- 489. We're extremely interested in the house.
- 490. Right. Uh—
- 491. Could we trouble you for two cups of tea?
- 492. Well,
- 493. good night then.
- 494. Sleep well.
- 495. Jesus, Erica.
- 496. Tell the others at the bank
I have buyers secured.
- 497. Yeah, thank you. Thank you.
Yeah, I know. It's fantastic.
- 498. I'm in the city, walking into a meeting
- 499. with their solicitors
right at this moment.
- 500. Sorry, what? The name of the solicitors?
- 501. Mmm, let me check that.
I'll get back to you.
- 502. Mmm, our television is
very difficult to work.
- 503. I… I can take a look—
- 504. Do you have any more canapés?
- 505. No, I'm afraid not.
- 506. What, with the viewing
being officially over.
- 507. We are extremely interested
in the house.
- 508. Yes, but exactly how interested are you?
- 509. Perhaps we should start negotiating
with your representatives?
- 510. Yes, we should, really.
- 511. Really?
- 512. Well, maybe you could get your solicitor
on the phone? Invite him over.
- 513. We should invite them over
for some food, straightaway.
- 514. Good.
- 515. If you could find any food, that is.
- 516. A perfect example
of what we call black mold on the wall.
- 517. Now, this is an outside wall,
- 518. and you can see the spots growing up here
on the surface of the wall…
- 519. …and even the ceiling.
- 520. The mold's, generally speaking, black,
but sometimes white—
- 521. They are going absolutely nowhere.
- 522. It's insane.
- 523. Because I had no one else to call but you!
- 524. Please don't put the phone down.
I've invested my whole life in this house.
- 525. You know that, darling.
- 526. Okay. Okay, I'm sorry.
- 527. I will never ever call you darling again,
- 528. Oh! Damn it! Damn it!
- 529. All right. It's pretty obvious you have
no intention of buying this house.
- 530. You think you can just lounge around
like this forever?
- 531. Eating my food, drinking my drinks?
- 532. No!
- 533. I'm ringing the police.
I'm ringing the police right now!
- 534. The phone is ringing.
- 535. Yes. I'd like to report a…
Well, I'm not too sure what it is.
- 536. A breaking and entering situation
without the breaking.
- 537. An entering and then a refusal to leave,
let's call it.
- 538. A hostage-taking,
- 539. in which the house I'm trying to sell
is being held hostage. It's…
- 540. It's confusing, yeah.
- 541. I just need you to send
a couple of police officers over quickly
- 542. to Van Schoonbeek Lane.
- 543. Christ, that was quick.
They're upstairs in the bath.
- 544. Do you have a dentist
called Dr. Jafri, sir?
- 545. Yeah, has… has something happened to him?
- 546. My God! Is he all right? I… I…
- 547. We've heard from Dr. Jafri
- 548. that you've been telephoning him
at all times of the day, sir.
- 549. Yeah. So, what?
- 550. You're sharing with him
personal details about your life,
- 551. which he, as your dentist,
has absolutely no interest in.
- 552. Right. Uh—
- 553. You're overfamiliar with him,
- 554. and occasionally, you call him
"darling" or even "sweetheart."
- 555. All of that is true,
but none of it's important.
- 556. I've two guests upstairs in a bath
who are refusing to leave my house.
- 557. You call Dr. Jafri again,
and he will take you to court.
- 558. Do you understand, sir?
- 559. Take me to court? Come back here!
- 560. I've done absolutely nothing wrong.
What are you talking about?
- 561. And who might you all be?
- 562. Oh, don't… don't mind me. Yeah. Oh.
- 563. They've been looking forward
to seeing our house.
- 564. - Your house?
- They are our family, visiting.
- 565. Your family?
- 566. They're actually very nice people.
- 567. They lived here before, you know.
- 568. Fuck!
- 569. I've had enough! Enough! Do you hear me?
- 570. Where's that… where… where…
- 571. Now fix us a cup of tea,
like a good man.
- 572. I'll give you tea, you bloody vermin.
Yeah. Yeah. Are you ready? Are you ready?
- 573. A nice cup of tea?
Nice cup… nice cup… nice cup of…
- 574. Time to get you home.
- 575. Wallpaper, apartment 3. Hmm.
- 576. Uh…
- 577. Not again!
- 578. Hmm.
- 579. Ooh!
- 580. Ooh.
- 581. Ah.
- 582. Ooh!
- 583. Oh!
- 584. Whoa!
- 585. Huh?
- 586. Oh! No!
- 587. Oh no. No. No!
- 588. No, no. N… n… n… no. No, no, no, no.
- 589. Ah!
- 590. Ah. G… good morning, Rosa.
- 591. It's the afternoon.
- 592. Oh.
- 593. - Okay.
- You know what day it is today?
- 594. Um, is it… Wednesday?
- 595. It's rent day.
- 596. Oh, uh, are we still doing that?
- 597. Yes, we're still doing that!
- 598. Um, when was the last time I… I paid rent?
- 599. With actual money?
- 600. Twelve weeks ago.
- 601. Ah. So, long time.
- 602. Yeah.
- 603. Well…
- 604. …just so you know,
the shower water is brown again.
- 605. Okay.
- 606. I didn't wanna say, but it just has
this really weird slippery texture.
- 607. Yeah, I know. It affected my paste.
- 608. Yeah, it would do.
You can feel it on my arm.
- 609. You know, if you paid me in money,
I'd have the resources
- 610. to get the proper equipment
to fix the plumbing.
- 611. Uh…
- 612. - I can pay you with fish?
- No. No more fish.
- 613. You have to eat,
and fish are an important source of—
- 614. Elias! For God's sake,
just find me my rent. Okay?
- 615. Okay.
- 616. Uh, I think I'll go and dry my fur.
- 617. Yeah, go on, then.
- 618. Affix floorboard to the other floorboards.
- 619. Uh…
- 620. Hey.
- 621. Jen.
- 622. Jen!
- 623. Morning!
- 624. It's three o'clock.
- 625. Hmm.
- 626. And soon it'll be four and then five!
- 627. Yeah, that's how it works.
- 628. Oh, I gave up on time years ago.
- 629. Right. Who needs it?
- 630. But today is rent day. Am I right?
- 631. Yeah. I'm really looking forward
to being paid my rent.
- 632. Here it is. The obsidian crystal.
- 633. A reliever of emotional blockage
- 634. and promoter of compassion
- 635. to help you find your true sense of self.
- 636. You've given me ten of these already
and still no money.
- 637. Let's eat.
- 638. Of course I knew
it was going to be difficult.
- 639. I mean, the scale alone is enormous,
- 640. but every day, I can see
the real potential of this house.
- 641. And if only I had tenants.
- 642. Well, they all left.
- 643. - Yeah, I know they left.
- Because of the flooding.
- 644. There's still me and Elias, of course.
- 645. Yeah, but I'm talking about good tenants.
- 646. Proper ones, who would pay me
with actual money,
- 647. instead of fish and stones.
- 648. Crystals.
- 649. I can't buy supplies with crystals.
- 650. You can realign your energy chakras.
- 651. Yeah, but it won't fix the electrics
or whatever else needs doing.
- 652. You could try.
- 653. It wouldn't hurt.
- 654. I've always loved this house, you know.
- 655. Hmm.
- 656. It's devotion, really.
- 657. How wonderful it could be.
- 658. Right.
- 659. I'd smarten it up
- 660. and then get residents in
to pay for further restoration.
- 661. Then, over time, you move everyone out.
- 662. And then the house will be finished.
It will be…
- 663. …stunning.
- 664. The house deserves it.
- 665. Right now, I just need
the, um, right… support.
- 666. Yeah, yeah.
I… I just don't have the right support.
- 667. Ah. Oh!
- 668. Um…
- 669. Have I spoken to you
about my spirit partner?
- 670. What do you mean? A boyfriend?
- 671. That term doesn't describe
what he is, really.
- 672. Okay. What about him?
- 673. - He's arriving tomorrow!
- Does he have any money?
- 674. We met eight years ago
at a Tibetan throat music workshop.
- 675. We've been communing ever since
on the astral plane.
- 676. No money then.
- 677. I wouldn't think so, no.
- 678. But he's a wonder, Rosa.
- 679. - A celestial force. Truly.
- Yeah, well, I'm not running a charity.
- 680. I'll be telling him that
and making myself clear.
- 681. I'm sure he'll have his uses.
- 682. Yeah, sure. Right.
- 683. Oh, I was wondering
about, um, the shower in my bathroom.
- 684. What about it?
- 685. It's been making some terrible noises,
and the water's brown again.
- 686. Hmm.
- 687. Oh.
- 688. There we go.
- 689. Oh.
- 690. Hey.
- 691. Hmm?
- 692. What… what the…
- 693. What the…
- 694. Whoa!
- 695. How wonderful!
- 696. That was amazing!
- 697. Oh, that's just a little something
I picked up in Tibet.
- 698. No, no. No applause, please.
- 699. I am merely a conduit to the melody.
- 700. A portal to a different music.
- 701. Another dance.
- 702. A messenger, basically.
- 703. How long have you been traveling?
- 704. Always. Always traveling, my child.
- 705. And yet, with each second,
the journey shortens
- 706. as I get a little bit closer to this…
- 707. …synthesis of celestial grace.
- 708. He's talking about me.
- 709. I brought you some earthly gifts, angel.
- 710. For purification,
the banishment of discord,
- 711. and a rebalancing
of one's physical dwelling.
- 712. Mmm.
- 713. I didn't get your name.
- 714. Hmm?
- 715. How rude of me.
- 716. Rosa, this is Cosmos.
- 717. And how long
are you planning to stay, Cosmos?
- 718. Ah, there are never any plans with me.
- 719. There's only moments
snatched from the wind.
- 720. - What are you talking about?
- It's not like we're short of room.
- 721. The house is huge.
- 722. A traveler cannot be bound
by earthly walls, Jen.
- 723. I sleep in the open.
- 724. Oh.
- 725. Whoa! Wow! Jeez Louise!
- 726. - Mm-hmm.
- What a day!
- 727. Let me prepare some food from my garden.
- 728. Go on, you can go in if you like.
Have a look around.
- 729. Yes, please.
- 730. - Whoa. It's really cool in here.
- I'm sensing a negative energy.
- 731. Yeah, it's coming from me.
- 732. Mmm, you're protective of Jen,
and for that, you have my gratitude.
- 733. Actually, I'm protective of my property.
- 734. So, um, when will you be getting off it?
- 735. I will move on when the mist has lifted.
- 736. Probably. But only time will tell.
- 737. Yeah, well, I should be charging you
for pitching that tent.
- 738. Charging.
- 739. What is money
- 740. but some physical denomination
of coin and note?
- 741. That's exactly what it is.
- 742. I move in an ocean of bartering myself.
- 743. Oh yeah?
And what is it that you barter with?
- 744. My skills.
- 745. So, what you're looking at right now
is the finish, obviously, the dream.
- 746. Everybody left when the rains came,
so I need to get some new paying tenants.
- 747. Then I'll have
some real money to play with.
- 748. I already have
a ton of paint and wallpaper.
- 749. Hmm.
- 750. You must begin with the roots.
- 751. Right, exactly!
- 752. The… the heating, electrics.
- 753. I've got some problems
with this brown water from the taps.
- 754. You have to nourish the soul of the house
to unleash its potential.
- 755. Right!
- 756. Enliven its chakra.
- 757. Ye… Mmm.
- 758. Maybe you can start with the plumbing?
- 759. Mmm.
- 760. Plumbing is a little invasive.
- 761. I would like
to get to know the house first,
- 762. possibly through some gentle carpentry.
- 763. I… I have a floorboard
- 764. that needs replacing
in the upstairs corridor?
- 765. Perfect. I'll make a start tomorrow.
- 766. Yes!
- 767. Um…
- 768. I mean, um, thank you. Uh…
- 769. This is going to be great.
- 770. Oh, the reawakening
will be beautiful, Rosa.
- 771. Beautiful.
- 772. Uh…
- 773. Yes.
- 774. Yeah.
- 775. Chika-chika-chika-chika.
- 776. - Come on, your turn!
- Oh, no. No. I… I don't.
- 777. - Come on!
- 778. - There you go.
- Come on, Rosa!
- 779. Woo!
- 780. What the…
- 781. What the hell's going on?
- 782. Ha! Someone had a bit too much to drink.
It's the middle of the day!
- 783. - What are you doing up there?
- Seize it! Embrace it!
- 784. Oh yeah, man. That's banging.
- 785. No!
- 786. No.
- 787. Oh! The water's still brown, Rosa!
- 788. Oh.
- 789. Oh! No! Oh no!
- 790. This isn't the plan! My plan!
- 791. Have you forgotten everything
we were talking about?
- 792. I'm sensing that negative energy again.
- 793. You've destroyed the corridor!
- 794. Realigned it.
- 795. You've pulled up every floorboard!
- 796. Yes, but for a boat, Rosa. A boat.
- 797. You have a boat! You have a boat outside!
- 798. - Well, the boat's for me!
- Right. The boat's for Elias.
- 799. Ugh! Oh God! What was in that wine, Jen?
- 800. Take it in one go. It's a bit pungent.
- 801. Oh! I've got a nonaggressive solution
to the plumbing.
- 802. That's great news.
- 803. I need some mint, a cabbage, two vials,
- 804. this drum to signify a heartbeat,
and a tambourine for affectation.
- 805. Get out of my house! Get out! Get out!
- 806. Oh! Yes, Rosa! Harness that strength!
- 807. Oh Christ!
- 808. Take that boat apart, you!
- 809. I want every one of those floorboards
back inside the house where they belong.
- 810. - Seriously?
- Yes, seriously.
- 811. You're ruining everything
I'm trying to fix!
- 812. It's… it's only a few floorboards.
- 813. It's a whole corridor.
- 814. How is anyone
supposed to access their rooms
- 815. if I don't have a corridor, Elias?
- 816. What are you even doing?
- 817. Wha…
- 818. Cosmos said he'd help me leave.
- 819. Wh… what?
- 820. You… you're living here for free.
Why would you want to leave?
- 821. Because everyone does.
- 822. By tomorrow,
the water will be in the house.
- 823. Oh, go then! Here, take them!
- 824. I'll… I'll rip up your room
and fix the corridor myself.
- 825. You can't stay here, Rosa.
Why can't you see it?
- 826. I should've got rid of you
months ago. Paying with fish!
- 827. I'm going to get
better people than you and Jen
- 828. and finish this house myself!
- 829. Go on then! Leave!
- 830. Uh…
- 831. Ugh.
- 832. Hmm.
- 833. Thank you.
- 834. Bye!
- 835. Why didn't he say goodbye to me?
- 836. Didn't you say your goodbyes already?
- 837. No, not really.
- 838. I didn't think he'd go.
- 839. He just needed a little guidance.
- 840. There's nothing better out there anyway.
- 841. For those who decide not to find it,
there can be nothing.
- 842. If he dies, it's your fault, you know.
- 843. He wanted to leave a long time ago, Rosa.
- 844. Well, he never told me that.
- 845. He didn't want to hurt your feelings.
- 846. Oh, whatever!
- 847. He was never any use to me anyway.
- 848. Bloody fool.
- 849. What the… What is that?
- 850. Oh, that.
- 851. Yes. I thought you might need it
once the mist has come and gone.
- 852. What? What are you talking about?
- 853. It's a lever. You can push it.
- 854. For your emancipation, Rosa,
should you choose it.
- 855. You just give it a bit of body weight,
and you'll be good to go.
- 856. Ooh!
- 857. Stop talking, you lunatic!
- 858. Just take it down!
- 859. You're destroying everything!
- 860. Goodbye, Rosa.
- 861. Thank you for giving me
my first real home.
- 862. Here are two presents.
- 863. Your friend, Elias.
- 864. Are you all right?
- 865. I didn't know he could draw.
- 866. Didn't you?
- 867. Do you want to have some lunch?
- 868. One last time, before I go.
- 869. When are you leaving?
- 870. We'll leave later, Cosmos said.
- 871. The morning, maybe.
- 872. I don't want to see him.
- 873. Just us then? Final meal together?
- 874. What do you think?
- 875. Fine.
- 876. It's not much, I'm afraid.
- 877. The water took the whole garden.
- 878. Why don't you ever talk about the flood?
- 879. There's nothing to talk about.
- 880. I know you've been busy
with your project.
- 881. So you're just leaving with no plan.
Is that it?
- 882. That's right.
- 883. You'll never find a house like this again.
- 884. There'll be something else.
- 885. - It's time to move on.
- Where to?
- 886. We don't know. We have to try.
- 887. Look, what is it you want?
- 888. To fix this house.
- 889. To make a home
with good memories for myself,
- 890. but I've been fighting this place
for bloody years.
- 891. Don't be frightened
about being someone else.
- 892. Oh, for God's sake.
- 893. Try to see the good things
that you did make.
- 894. Love your past but travel on.
- 895. You're sounding like that lunatic.
- 896. He's only here to help you move on, Rosa.
- 897. Yeah, well, he doesn't know me.
- 898. None of you do.
- 899. Now.
- 900. Don't be afraid.
- 901. What?
- 902. What do you mean, "don't be afraid"?
- 903. Jen?
- 904. Jen, where are you?
- 905. Wh… what's happening?
- 906. Jen?
- 907. Hello?
- 908. Jen? Anyone? Je…
- 909. Where are you?
- 910. Wait!
- 911. Uh, don't go!
- 912. Hello?
- 913. Hello?
- 914. No! No! No!
- 915. No, no, no, no!
- 916. Oh!
- 917. No!
- 918. Jen?
- 919. Stop! Stop! No!
- 920. No!
- 921. Wh…
- 922. Elias?
- 923. Goodbye, Rosa.
- 924. What?
- 925. Wh…
- 926. Rosa!
- 927. Jen?
- 928. Jen!
- 929. Come on! Join us, Rosa!
- 930. I can't! I can't!
- 931. Come on, Rosa!
- 932. I can't get to you!
- 933. Just come back!
- 934. Please!
- 935. I want to go.
- 936. Please.
- 937. Let me leave.
- 938. Huh?
- 939. You can do it!
Come on, Rosa!
- 940. Yes!
- 941. Yay, Rosa!
- 942. Woo!
- 943. Hi!
- 944. Ah!
- 945. Okay. Okay.
