>>> Australian accent was never my forte but I hope this messy transcription will be good enough for you to understand the story.

- Julian!
- There he is.
- What are you guys doing here? Do I need to worry or something? ... Tim! What are you doing here?
- Drinking, mate. You should be too.
- Exactly. I think it's time for the chant...
- Oh yeah.
Here's to Julian, he's true blue.
He's a piss pot through and through.
He's a bastard so they say.
He tried to get to heaven but he went the other way.
So down down down down...

- So Sean, what is going on?
- Jules. Through the glory days, you and me, late nights, light mornings, chasing girls, getting drunk, breaking hearts. Listen to me, I'm a ++++. Jules, I start to realize that the greatest days of my life probably got on my back. I know, it's a stupid thing to say on a day like today but...
- Sean, I woke up this morning, I came down here ++++. I had this dream. There was an angel in a field... something... I...
- ++++
- I think I heard mum's voice.
- Already? That's why we're here, isn't it? The good news... she's coming to see ya.
- Sean, can I talk to you for a second? Sean, you stood beside me on my mother's funeral. For Christ's sake! Do you think you can junk about that? Tell me, what is going on?
- Jesus, you don't know, do you?
- Know what?
- About her, about everything. We all thought you knew. We all... all of us, we're all here for you. But I can't, I can't fill you in on this one. Look behind you. That's the guy that'll speak to you.
- Dad!?
- See? He's been waiting for you here all day. Hardly moved. Now, go over there. We'll stay here. You'll clear things up. Go on there.
- It's ++++ to see ya.
- What's happening?
- Oh, in good time, son, in good time. It is so good to see you.
- Dad, you only saw me the other day.
- Yea, I know, I know, but it feels like a long time. You want any of these...?
- Dad, I'm not hungry. Now, look...
- You know who I saw today? Marcos, ++++. He said he'd drop by later on this evening.
- Dad. Sean, he was saying something about mum, like... like she's here or something. What the hell is he talking about? This all feels like a dream.
- Well, they say a dream is our mind's way of making a difficult reality into a bearable absurdity. I say dreams give us hope.
- Dad, what are you...? You've been drinking, you're not making any sense.
- How many times I've snuck you into places like this to have a beer with your old man. Just seems like a couple of seconds ago that you were just a little cub, too scared to cross the street ++++...
- Dad, what does that even mean?
- It seems like just a couple of seconds ago that I met your mum, ++++ more that she died. ++++ permanent.
- Look, Dad, I'm not sure you're hearing me, huh? Nothing, nothing is making any sense.
- I know it's confusing for you, I know it's confusing but... you can look towards the window.
- What!
- It's nothing to be afraid of, it's gonna be fine.
- Aw! Oh Christ! Oh Christ!
- It's ok.
- Julie, Julie, Julie.
- How you feeling, son? It's a lot to take in, I know. But I want you to know I've always been there for you, son. Always will be. Just like your mother.
- Mum.
- Yea.
- I heard voices, dozens of them.
- Yea, they're getting a bit impatient. You always were a popular guy.
- I saw...
- ++++, not one, many. Everyone's on their own. But today they all stopped, just for you. It's a beautiful thing.
- Dreaming?
- Yes... in a way.
- We're closing fellows, time to go.
- We ++++ be home now.
- I'm not well, am I. Am I?
- God. I've tried to be there for you, son. I've tried.
- I know. I know.
- Fellows, time's up.
- Time's up.
- I heard every word, dad. They said I couldn't, but I did.
- I always knew that.
- Where do I go?... Bye, dad.
They say a dream is our mind's way of making a difficult reality into a bearable absurdity. I say dreams give us hope.
