1x10 All Day Long (April 02, 2004)


The boys have enough money to take Ta out on his stag night but are still short for the transport arrangements for the wedding day. The boys plan to make a night of it in Belfast city centre but, after Wardrobe gets into a fight with a night club bouncer, they end up in the local shebeen. The next day the boys arrive at JJ's house only to see Carol being arrested by the police. Moments later they receive a call from JJ and they pick him up from a field. He needs their help to escape the country. Shay and Darragh aren't keen so Wardrobe ditches them and takes JJ to the airport. As a reward JJ tells Wardrobe he can clear the house before the Assets Bureau get hold of all his stuff. He only has one condition - Wardrobe must ship the Grandfather clock to him. Darragh finally gets together with Carol - only to find out she is going to join JJ abroad. It is the day of Ta's wedding and the lads must clear the house before the end of the day, but there's one problem - they need two vans and ha

Hoker asks Shay to sign on for him as he is planning a trip to Spain to smuggle cigarettes. Shay agrees but signs his own name!

On their journey back with the clock, their van is hijacked by dissident Republicans and the lads are locked in a pigsty. They escape and are making their way home on the back of a tractor when they encounter a road block. The road has been closed due to a suspected van bomb - in Wardrobe's van!

Wardrobe is determined to buy his Ma's house as a 60th birthday present as he discovers that Shay's sister has bought her parents House. He makes an appointment to try and get a mortgage but his dodgy credit history and lack of a proper job means that he is refused. As his Ma has been living there for a total of 42 years all he needs is £5,200 but it seems a huge mountain to climb. His cousin Manuel agrees to help if he does a move for him. Manuel is getting married to a posh bird from the Malone Road and he wants Wardrobe and the lads to stage a robbery.

Una agrees to marry Ta - but refuses to let him back in the house until after the wedding and on condition that he doesn't pull any more moves.

Shay gets a job driving pirate taxis - thanks to a bum licence supplied by Hoker. He's useless at the job. One day a call comes into the depot to pick up Ma McCluskey, a deeply religous but very scary 'ballbreaker' with three extremely big, tough, and devoted sons. When he's stopped at a roadblock he asks Concepta McCluskey to lie and say she's a friend and that Shay is giving her a lift. Concepta refuses to lie so Shay makes up a story and tells the police that she and Shay are having an affair. Unfortunately, Shay had left the taxi radio on and the gossip spreads like wildfire through the local community and, before long, Concepta's three notorious

The boys assemble most of the ingredients but they are missing one vital part of the cocktail - steroids. Shay persuades the boys to let him approach Hoker to supply them. They plan to sell the formula to all the pigeon racers in Belfast thinking that they've made their fortune.

The lads are hired to take on the role of Private Investigators. They're paid to tail Mick Bad News' wife as Mick thinks Tara is cheating on him.

Ta draws the short straw. Meanwhile, Ta's partner Una has been growing increasingly suspicious of Ta as she has smelt cheap perfume on his clothes. (In fact the perfume has been supplied to the boys to flog for a quick buck). Una decides to bug his mobile phone to find out what he is up to and, when she hears hi

The owner of a valuable prize Shih-tzu commissions the lads to dognap another champion Shih-tzu which belongs to his ex lover and biggest rival.

Ug has outgrown his welcome in the area as he has impregnated every she dog in the vicinity. Ug has already been replaced with a Lurcher who goes like the wind but who, unfortunately, mistakes small dogs for rats and despatches them accordingly. Shay and Wardrobe bring the dog to an animal shelter in the country. Unfortunately the animal shelter suffers a robbery and one of the thieves decides to free Ug.
