Video 5: Indoctrinating baby

Uncle Andy:
Goo, goo, goo. Aren't you lovely? And you are going to look great in this wee bowler hat and sash. And next week I will get you a wee plumed hat and a flutie. You would like that, wouldn't you? Don't you worry I won't let your fenian ma indoctrinate you.

Billy:
Oi Uncle Andy. I have told you before cut out the sectarian remarks about my wife.

Uncle Andy:
Me? Sectarian? I am not sectarian. I just don't like Taigs. Never thought I would see the day I would be living under the same roof as a papist, no. Why do you and your wife have to live here?

Billy:
Because it's my house and I pay the mortgage.

Uncle Andy:
Oh, I suppose that makes you think you own the place?

Billy:
Uncle Andy, Eimer is my wife. Will you please try and make her feel more at home?

Uncle Andy:
Okay, okay. I'll put some coal in the bath. And I'll get a couple of pigs for the kitchen.

Billy:
I have warned you.

Uncle Andy:
Aye, you're right. One pig in the house is enough.

Eimer:
Here I have to rush. Will you be okay looking after my wee love?

Uncle Andy:
Don't you worry. Carson Joel Craig will be safe with me.

Eimer:
His name is Keanu. That's what's on his birth certificate. That's the name we chose for him. Didn't we, Billy?

Billy:
Yes love, you did. Now can we get going? I will drop you off at your ma's.
