Joe:
[Hands football cleats to Jess] They're a bit tatty, but they'll do the job. Here's a kit. Don't be afraid to get it dirty.

Jess:
Can't I wear my tracksuit bottoms?

Joe:
No.

Jess:
Shit!

...

[Joe is wondering why Jess is sitting in the stands looking dejected so he has sat next to her]

Joe:
Jess, what's going on?

Jess:
[Jess pulls shorts over her burn scarred leg] It looks awful. It's why I can't wear shorts ever.

Joe:
Jesus! That's a stunner! I thought I had a bad one on my knee, but yours is gorgeous!Look... Two operations later and it's still useless. [Pulls up pant leg to reveal gnarled scar on knee] Does yours affect your game? Look, don't worry about it. No one's gonna care once you're out there. What happened?

Jess:
You don't want to know. Nah, it just looks awful. I was eight. My mum was working overtime at Heathrow. And I was trying to cook beans on toast. And I jumped up to the grill to get the toast.

Joe:
[Sucks in through teeth] Sorry.

Jess:
I know - it put me off beans on toast for life.

Joe:
[Tries to stifle laughter] Come on. Mine stopped me from playing outright, yours doesn't. No more dawdling.

Jess:
Sorry about your knee.

Joe:
Yeah, yeah. I'm a right sob story, aren't I? Come on! I want to see some sweat on you!
