BACK TO WIDE SHOT - LOOKING FROM THE BAR TO THE DOOR AGAIN.
Brown.P enters looking glum. Davey looks around and greets him.
DAVEY: “Oh ‘ello Philby… What are you looking so happy about ?”
[[EDITORS NOTE: HE ISN'T THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE BOX, BUT WAS STILL USEFUL TO BRING IN LATE ON TO HELP FINISH THE JOB]]
PHILBY: “The buggers have just laid me off…haven’t even finished the job yet.”
DAVEY: “Ah that’s a shame. Where were you ?”
PHILBY: “I wasn’t done there at Boothferry Park…”
[[EDITORS NOTE: YES I KNOW THEY DON'T PLAY THERE ANY MORE, ARTISTIC LICENCE]]
PHILBY: “A cupple of me lads had a bit of bother the other day, right in front of the WI when they were supping their tea, but I said sorry for them. Then today tha boss comes straight up to me with a pair of scissors and cuts me cable. Look at it….Buggers…”
DAVEY: “That was only a Fisher Price radio you know. It didn’t really work.”
PHILBY: “Yeah but they din’t know that diddey ?..Heh, heh…Any hows never mind me – What ‘appened to you ?”
DAVEY (with a tear in his eye): “I was having a kickaround with me mates in Meelan…you know…behind Meelans…”
CUT AWAY SHOT OF A SUPERMARKET THAT LOOKS LIKE ALDI BUT HAS A MEELAN SIGN ON IT..”on the rec there and then all of a sudden me leg starts hurting and I can’t go no more.”
PHILBY: “Ah that a bad one for you kidder, I know you were looking forward to playing in that Over 35-doing anything he can to keep playing even though he’s slowed down and only has that one trick up his sleeve tourney in South Adlington.”
PHILBY: “You still got your job modelling underwear for the Kays catalogue ? You could still do that. They could put a towel over that plaster, nobody would notice.”
DAVEY: “Yeah and I’ve still got me mates over in’t States…sorry Staines… who will givvus. I’m half knackered but they don’t know eh. – But whattabou you ?”
PHILBY: “Ah I’ve still got me van…and then there’s the Kareoke…I’ll be okay…”
MEANWHILE IN THE BACKGROUND CURLY AND LLOYD ENTER THE BAR AND HEAD STRAIGHT OVER TO A BOOTH. BETTY COMES OVER WITHIN HALF A SECOND OF THEM SITTING DOWN AND PUTS A COUPLE OF PINTS IN FRONT OF THEM AND A HOTPOT. CURLY AND LLOYD CONTINUE TO ARGUE ABOUT WHO'S SIDE IS GOING TO BOTTLE THE CHANCE FOR FORTH.
