There once was a Block,
it was a very big block.

The largest in all the land.

And within it were ten busy workers
toiling away day and night

to produce the very best rooms
they possibly could.

Thank you. You guys are the best
neighbours ever. Thank you.

Kim and Chris, they're our
neighbours and we love them.

Too easy.
Appreciate it.

Sasha and Chris think they were
separated at birth.

SCOTT: And four of the workers were
the best of friends,

laughing, celebrating and generally
bonding, until one day...

..a wall came between them.

And from that time on,
the happy Block was no more.

At the end of the day, they have
stabbed us in the back.

I just look forward
