(Charlie is standing, near her car, looking at her phone. Lee is behind a table in front of the car, practicing his lines. Charlie looks at her watch and looks around. Julia scans the contents of the table and Gavin's hand appears in a bowl of crisps..)

Julia: Gavin! Stop eating the props!

Gavin: Props? (Eats a crisp.) Well, welcome to another great TV show idea on our whistle-stop tour of vibrant university communities, where there's no students. (The camera pans to a lawn, showing it empty.) Brilliant.

(Cut to a shot of the University, with no one in sight.)

Gavin: Maybe we should get some crowd control, Julia. (Mocks pushing someone back.) 'Scuse me, mate, can you stay back, please? Stay back. Can you stay behind the barrier, please, mate? Sorry, Julia, I'll- Stay behind the barrier.

Julia: Shutup, Gavin.

Gavin: I've got it; it's fine. (A group of people walk by.) Whoah! (Walks back.) Shambles!

Council: 'Scuse me... I'm from the council. Do you have permission to be here?

Gavin: Yep.

Julia: Uh...

Council: Wh-who's in charge?

Charlie: That would be me. Don't worry about it, guys. (Walks away with the woman.)

(Cut to Lee standing in front of the table, with Gavin nearby eating.)

Julia: Okay, Lee, let's just try the intro.

Lee: Okay. Alright, um. Welcome to the first edition of our guerilla food program: Car Park Cookery! Where we teach you how to make delicious dishes from things you might find inside of your car. Right. Let's meet our first guinea pig. (Motions toward Gavin.) What's your name, and where'd you come from?

Gavin: Alright, I'm Gavin, I'm from Manchester.

Lee: Oh, Manchester! Don't beat me up!

Gavin: I'll try.

Julia: Great, guys. It was really good, thanks.

(Gavin grabs a few peanuts out of a bowl and eats them.)

Lee: D-don't come near me with any of those things.

Gavin: I don't think me eating peanuts is going to set off your allergy, idiot.

Lee: Yeah, well I don't want to take any chances, do I? (Gavin throws a peanut at Lee's head.) No!

Gavin: (inaudible). (Throws another peanut at Lee.)

Lee: No, stop! Quit it, you knob!

Julia: Boys! Can you behave for just- (Gavin heads toward Lee.) Gavin, five minutes. (Lee walks away as Gavin shoves the rest of the peanuts in his mouth.)

(Cut to Lee back by the table.)

Julia: Right, let's try again, boys.

Gavin: It's not exactly rocket science, is it?

Julia: Gavin, just do it, okay? (Lee throws a pumpkin seed at Gavin.) Lee!

Gavin: Ow. (Runs over to the table.)

Julia: Gavin!

(Gavin grabs some peanuts and throws them at Lee.)

Lee: No!

Julia: Stop it, the pair of you!

(Lee grabs a fist full of candies and tosses them at Gavin.)

Julia: Why can we not just have a day of you not fighting? (Gavin attacks Lee and catches him in a head lock.) Please, boys!

Lee: Oh, no! Stop!

Julia: Stop it!

Gavin: Come on, can't hurt all that bad.

Julia: Lee! (Lee and Gavin fall, pulling the table down with them.) No! Guys!

(Gavin begins to try and begin the fight again, and Lee starts choking.)

Gavin: W-w-what you doing?

Julia: Oh my god, what-?

Gavin: Uh... (Gets up.)

Julia: W-what's happened?

Gavin: He's gone into shock. Some of the peanuts must have got in his mouth. Um...

Julia: Well, what are we gonna do?

Gavin: I need to give him his shot. Is the kit still in the car?

Julia: It's in the glove compartment.

Gavin: (Runs over to the car.) Stay there!

Julia: (Looks at Lee.) You're gonna be okay!

(Gavin runs over with the emergency medical kit. He grabs a syringe.)

Julia: Gavin, how do you know what you're doing?

Gavin: I had to do it for my uncle a couple of years ago. The trouble is you have to get it into a muscle, which is harder than it sounds with this skinny freak.

Julia: Oh my god. (Gavin pushes the excess air out of the syringe.) Lee... He's gonna die!

(Gavin pulls up Lee's coat and stabs him with the syringe into his bum through his pants. Lee begins to be able to breathe again and Gavin backs away.)

Julia: Is he okay?

Gavin: Yeah, I think so. Lee, are you okay?

Lee: Yeah, I think so. (Grabs the syringe.) Did you do that?

Gavin: Well, yeah. That's what you're supposed to do.

Lee: It is, yeah. You saved my life.

Gavin: Yeah, I suppose. Well, I mean- I guess I wasn't thinking straight.

Lee: You saved my life!

(Lee tries to hug Gavin, who pushes him away.)

Gavin: Yeah, alright, alright. Get off. Get off.

Charlie: What's going on here?

Julia: Gavin just saved Lee's life.

Charlie: What?

(Gavin helps Lee up and they sit on the hood of the car.)

Julia: Yeah, he swallowed a peanut, so Gavin gave him an adrenaline injection. It was pretty amazing.

Charlie: Gav, you saved his life?

Gavin: Yeah, I can't believe it. Spent the last two months thinking about nothing but killing him, and now I've saved his life.

Lee: Thanks, buddy. (Tries to hug Gavin.)

Gavin: Yeah, alright!

Charlie: Gav-

Gavin: (Gestures to the syringe.) Don't wave that thing around!

Lee: So elated.

Gavin: (Grabs the syringe off of Lee and hands it to Charlie.) We should get him to a hospital or something.

Charlie: Yeah.

Lee: I feel a little bit funny.

(Lee laughs as Charlie and Gavin help him into the car.)

Gavin: Come on. Deadwood.

Charlie: (Waves at Julia.) Come on.

Gavin: Stop giggling.
