Scum: Who's the daddy?

There is a certain visceral thrill in seeing the young Ray Winstone deal out some jail justice and take charge with his tool, but the best scene in Scum is undoubtedly the one where Archer tries to talk to one of the screws like he is a human being over a cup of tea, and ends up hugely insulting him and all his life choices. In a grim depiction of life in a borstal, people talking to each other like they are actual people is a shining ray of light behind the bars.
