So, what would you like me to do?
Well, Hooson won't give up.
He's a grammar school boy,
I think he likes scrapping in the yard.
And, apparently, this Scott
made a statement to the police back in '62.
It's a pack of lies but its sheer existence could be misread.
Would that be so bad?
We can all bear a little scandal.
My own mother disowned me when I married an actress,
and I survived.
- How is Beryl? - Still dancing.
See, I think it's different
when the lies are homosexual in nature,
because I think stories like that
reflect badly on the whole of Parliament.
I just thought that perhaps you could suggest to the police
that they busy themselves with more important things.
Is it true? What Scott says?
Consider it done.
-谢谢 -包在我身上 别再出这种事了
- Thank you. - Consider it done, and no more.
We've hit a problem,
the commission of the Metropolitan Police
can't find any substance
to Mr Scott's allegations.
You're very kind, Emlyn...
but it doesn't really matter any more.
I just thought that if Mr Scott had any evidence...
can I speak to him?
'I've been very silly.'
I do these things.
Have these little passions and they sweep in and they sweep out.
Sorry, I don't think I understand.
They laughed at me.
They all laughed at me.
The widow woman falling for a boy
who was already in love with someone else.
Sorry, I really don't understand.
Look, the matter is closed, Mr Hooson.
You go back to your world and I'll, uh...
I'll just stay in mine
because I'm going to be perfectly, perfectly fine.
Are you all right?
I tried ringing but she won't answer.
Gwen. Hello there.
-格温 你在吗 -这真热
- Gwen, are you in? - Bloody hell, it's hot.
Hard to identify.
They think the body's been there for weeks
with the heating on full blast.
I was away. I was in London.
We'll have to wait for the inquest, but...
there were some pills and some alcohol by the bed.
I'm so sorry.
It's a terrible set of circumstances
but, given the poor lady's passing,
I think we have to consider the matter closed.
- Gracious of you. - Thank you.
Did you give Mr Scott your sympathies?
I passed on my condolences, yes.
No doubt you used the same tone of voice
as when you offered me sympathy for my dead wife.
谢谢 埃姆林 你退下吧
Thank you, Emlyn. You are dismissed.
大卫 过来 我们有活要干
David, come, we have work to do.
Jeremy says kill him in America.
So I thought Florida.
You see, this one is called Big Cypress Swamp.
So we lure him there, shoot him dead,
chuck him in the swamp, plop,
he sinks to the bottom - gone.
Or he gets eaten by alligators.
- Even better. - And you would do the actual shooting?
- I suppose so. - Shoot him how?
Through the head.
David, you don't really want to do this, do you?
Oh, my God, no.
- I'm so glad. - Bloody hell, it's insane.
- Bit bonkers, isn't it? - It's bloody nuts.
Do you think he seriously means it, though?
Do you think Jeremy really wants him dead?
Sometimes I do, yes.
So do I. Shit.
And here we are, plotting with alligators.
It's astonishing, the hold he has over us.
Strange, isn't it?
Because I've got that bloke of mine at home, Gerald.
但接着我去伦敦 碰到杰里米 然后
But then I go to London and there's Jeremy and...
I love him.
It amazes me that we all go to such lengths to protect him
when he's so bloody overt.
He's perfected the art of hiding in plain sight.
I think he likes it.
The danger of it. It's a game.
Could you do it, though, David?
Could you kill someone?
I'd get someone else to do it.
- Would you? - If I could find people, yeah.
Well, let's make sure that you never do.
We'll pretend to Jeremy.
We'll tell him we set it all up,
the murder, in Florida, and Norman...
and that something went wrong.
We'll say that Norman just didn't turn up.
- That's a bit lame. - Well, at least he'll think that we tried.
Of course, the good thing is
that Jeremy forgets Norman Scott every few years.
Let's just keep putting him off until he forgets for good.
Might work. He's got other things on his mind these days.
He's getting married again.
- Oh, good God. - Marian, Countess of Harwood.
How was the wedding? Congratulations, by the way.
Thank you very much indeed. We are absolutely delighted.
It was a relatively modest affair.
Paddington registry office.
And then Westminster Abbey for the blessing.
Followed by luncheon for family and friends.
I think it was only 40 guests.
We wanted to make it special.
We shared many happy memories of Rupert's mother.
- It was lovely. - We did indeed.
Thorpe, John Jeremy.
I hereby declare that Jeremy Thorpe is the MP
- for the North Devon constituency. - Thank you.
