We need to take a trip to London.
May I introduce George Mottershead?
来介绍 这位是George Mottershead
I wonder if I could momentarily pick your brains there, Minister?
I'm here to tell you the truth about our zoo.
This petition, whose idea was it?
You're really willing to lie about my family?
If that's what it takes.
You read the petition, you know what they think of us! Are you an idiot?
看了请愿书 你知道他们是怎么看我们的 你犯傻吗?
No guarantee, but I'll look into the matter.
Mottershead has to be seen as... as a menace.
If they want a public hearing, then we'll just give them one.
Destroy the man, and we'll destroy the zoo.
'There's no such thing as a quiet day at Oakfield.
'In the past week alone Sidney, our camel, has eaten the washing line,
'and Pelly the pelican got stuck up a tree
'and had to be rescued by Grandad.
'Everything was almost back to normal...
'and then the birds flew away.'
What are you doing out?
They won't get away with this.
He's half an hour late.
We're here now. Let's just hear him out.
He comes highly recommended.
Mr and Mrs Mottershead, sorry.
Got caught up with a client.
Busy, Mr Kelly?
But you have my undivided attention now, I can assure you.
-How can I help? -We're looking for representation.
We have a planning appeal for a zoo,
scheduled in front of the Ministry of Health and the entire village of Upton.
The court of public opinion can be tricky.
It's not about facts and figures, it's about emotion... trust.
Added to which, the council have got very deep pockets.
They'll throw experts at a case like this, groom witnesses.
Look, why don't I write down my fee on this piece of paper and we can negotiate from there?
You don't even know the terms, how can you put a price on it?
You get a feel for these things.
Aye, for pound notes, you mean!
No doubt that'd be me on the end of that phone when you got my money.
Are you even qualified in the law, Mr Kelly?
I've got a certificate on the wall
and a waiting room full of clients to prove it.
Is there a problem here?
No, no, I just think I can make a better fist of things myself.
At least I'll have the advantage of knowing what the hell I'm talking about.
-I've had enough of this! -George, hold on!
-我受够了 -George 等等!
You know, there's many a fella who thinks he can argue his own case,
so here's a bit of advice for free--
a temper like his is hardly built for a courtroom.
Leave that bird alone, you'll be late.
But he's still not eating.
Maybe I should take him to school with me,
make sure he's all right.
I don't want him anywhere near Upton, June.
None of the people in that village can be trusted.
Oh, don't be so dramatic, Albert.
Well, one of them cut the nets, didn't they?
Those lovebirds are tiny. They won't last five minutes in the wild.
You kept them well fed. They've got a fighting chance.
I tell you what, why don't you invite a friend home for tea tomorrow?
这样吧 何不邀请一个朋友来家里喝茶? 就明天
-Ladies, this is our newest girl, Muriel... -Atkinson.
-姑娘们 这位是新来的Muriel... -Atkinson
Miss Atkinson, this is Gail and Harriet.
They'll make you feel right at home, I'm sure.
I'm on the third floor, so come by later if you want to have lunch.
She's a legend round here.
You're allowed to call her that?
So, how many words a minute are you?
That's... pretty good.
Harriet holds the record--87 words a minute.
Oh, we're not really supposed to decorate our desks.
I don't need some second-rate solicitor arguing for me.
He didn't even sound like a lawyer.
I never had you down as a snob.
Look, Tipping's here.
What are they doing?
Mother, you're the Ministry.
Dad... Chester Council.
Lizzie, I need you to be Upton.
Right, I'll be me, obviously.
Now, I want us to imagine what they're likely to throw at us,
so be as hostile as you like.
why don't you start us off?
Ask me a question, anything you like.
Do you not think a zoo would detract from the value of the property in Upton Village?
Short and to the point.
But it'll hardly add to the value, will it?
I mean, if the house were a stately home or something that...
