In the scene we’re studying today a guy goes to a camp or a caravan park and he is looking for someone. And a kid who lives there comes up to him to and offers to go and find the guy.
He says: Do you want me to go and get him?
And the man replies: That’s a good lad.
Ladis an informal word for boy or young man.
That’s a good lad, means, thank you, or,that’s nice of you to offer to do that.
But it turns out the lad wanted to get paid, so the man swears at him because he’s a gangster and he doesn’t care about swearing at kids. And the kid swears back because he’s a bit of wild kid.
The lad asks for five quid. A quid is an informal word for a British pound by the way. And the man eventually agrees to give him one quid. He says: You can have a quid.
