1- “Killing me softly with his song
2
“Telling my whole life”
3
– What time does this thing start? – What have you got against Marcus singing?
4
You know the dream where you’re at school without your trousers on and everyone laughs?
5
– What’s the connection? – That will be Marcus, but for real.
6
If he sings that song in front of those kids…
7
…you can just write him off until university.
8
If he reaches university, ’cause he’s going to get torn to shreds.
9
You cannot stop someone from expressing themselves.
10
He’s not expressing himself! He’s expressing you, okay?
11
Oh, God.
12
What? Jesus Christ.
13
You’re right. Will, am I a bad mother?
14
No, you’re not a bad mother. You’re just a barking lunatic.
15
No, I am. I am a bad mother.
16
I’ve let things slide and I haven’t been noticing properly.
17
He’s a special, very special boy.
18
And he’s got a special soul, and I’ve wounded it!
19
Please, just shut up. You’re wounding my soul.
20
Okay, you park it. What?
21
Hi.
22
What are you doing here?
23
That’s Ali up there.
24
He’s talented.
25
Now that was the Def Penalty Kru with Murder Fo’ Life.
26
Our next big act is Marcus Brewer…
27
…singing Roberta Flack’s beloved Killing Me Softly.
28
He’ll be accompanied by Simon Cosgrove on the recorder.
29
Marcus, I can’t do this.
30
– That lot’s going to shit all over us. – But you said…
31
I’m sorry. Here’s your 5 back.
32
Any moment now.
33
Come on, Marcus, you wally!
34
Wait! Wait!
35
Excuse me. What is going on here?
36
Nothing. Everything’s under control. I’m just his voice coach.
37
What are you doing here?
38
I heard you were about to commit social suicide, so I dropped by.
39
– My accompanist left! – Brilliant.
40
– You don’t have to do it. – I can’t do that.
41
Yeah, you can. Just tell them: Artistic differences.
42
You can’t work without him. He had a drug problem.
43
My mum wants me to sing it. It’ll make her happy.
44
Look, mate, nothing you do can make your mum happy, all right?
45
Not in the long term. She has to do that for herself.
46
– Get over here right now! – Just bugger off, will you!
47
What I’m saying is, the important thing is to make yourself feel happy.
48
I’ve tried just making myself happy. She’s tried making herself happy.
49
It doesn’t work. You need other people to make you happy.
50
But that’s just it.
51
If other people can make you happy then they can also make you unhappy.
52
What, you think those people out there are going to make you happy?
53
Hang on. Wait. Marcus, don’t.
54
Marcus! Bollocks.
55
Come on, Britney!
56
Yeah, give us a song, then.
57
This is for my mum.
58
“I heard he sang a good song
59
“I heard he had a style
60
“And so I came to see him
61
“to listen for a while
62
“And there he was this young boy
63
“a stranger to my eyes”
64
You’re rubbish, mate!
65
“Strumming my pain with his fingers
66
“Singing my life with his words
67
“Killing me softly with his song
68
“Killing me softly”
69
Who the hell is that?
70
“Telling my whole life with his words
71
“Killing me softly with his song
72
“I felt all flushed with fever
73
“embarrassed by the crowd
74
“I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud
75
“I prayed that he would finish
76
“but he just kept right on
77
“Strumming my pain with his fingers
78
“Singing my life with his words
79
“Killing me softly”
80
Give it a rest.
81
“Killing me softly with his song
82
“Telling my whole life with his words Killing me softly
83
“With his song
84
“He sang as if he knew me”
85
Will.
86
“In all my dark despair”
87
We’re finished.
88
“And then he looked right through me as if I wasn’t there”
89
Will, come on.
90
Will, we’re finished.
91
So there I was, killing them softly with my song.
92
Or rather, being killed. And not that softly, either.
93
I was singing with my eyes closed.
94
Was I frightened?
95
I was petrified.
96
This was definitely not island living.
97
“Killing me softly
98
“With his song”
99
Thank you, Finsbury.
100
I’d like to introduce one or two members of the band.
101
Marcus Brewer on vocals and tambourine.
102
And that’s about it.
103
Let’s get off quick. Get off.
104
Marcus, thank you. For the song.
105
You were terrific.
106
– You think so? – Yeah.
107
As a matter of fact, I think we should celebrate.
108
Okay.
109
How about McDonald’s?
110
– McDonald’s? – Yeah.
111
Thanks, Mum, but it’s okay.
112
No, really. I want to go to McDonald’s.
113
You know, I’m not really hungry.
114
Come on. Are you telling me you couldn’t murder a Big Mac?
115
Mum!
116
Okay, another time.
117
Any time.
118
I’ll be around a while, you know.
119
By the following Christmas things were back to normal.
120
Before you came-
121
Every man is an island. And I stand by that.
122
But clearly, some men are part of island chains.
123
Below the surface of the ocean they’re actually connected.
124
So you’re going to marry my mum, then?
125
Don’t know.
126
Why?
127
You think she’s up for it?
128
– I used to want him to marry my mum. – You serious?
129
Yeah. But that was when she was depressed and I was desperate.
130
Thanks, mate. Cheers.
131
How do you use this blender-thing? You don’t.
132
I used to think two wasn’t enough. Christ.
133
Now there were loads of people.
134
And that was great. Mostly.
135
Are you two lazy bastards gonna get up and help, or what?
136
So how do you know Will?
137
We volunteered together at Amnesty International a couple years ago.
138
Yeah, that’s right. How is the Burmese situation, Tom? Better?
139
I mean good?
140
Yeah, and he called me up out of the blue for Christmas lunch.
141
So, here I am.
142
Really?
143
So, listen, what’s the deal with you and Ellie now?
144
Is she your girlfriend?
145
Are you insane?
146
Where did you get those trainers?
147
– Why? What’s wrong with them? – Nothing.
148
What?
149
By the way, I do think you and Rachel have a shot.
150
– I mean, if you don’t screw it up. – Thank you.
151
I’d created a monster.
152
Or maybe he created me.
153
I don’t know what Will was so upset about.
154
All I meant was I don’t think couples are the future.
155
You need more than that. You need backup.
156
The way I saw it, Will and I both had backup now.
157
It’s like that thing he told me Jon Bon Jovi said:
158
“No man is an island. ”
