Boss. Boss! Got it.
We got the bag, boss.
Is it in here?
-Yup. Sure is.
-SHE WOLF WHISTLES
Let's do this.
Too bad, you won't get me, insect.

I wish I was Smash Hornet.
What was that loud music last night?
Sorry about that. I was hoping it hadn't disturbed you girls.
That was Dexter, one of the older lads on the boys' ward.
I don't want to have a shower.
If you don't have a shower,
you might start to get a bit stinky,
and that stink might get so bad that they have to evacuate the hospital,
then I won't get paid because I can't do my job
and I won't be able to afford any chocolate,
so you can see, we are in an impossible situation.
I...don't want a shower.
OK, Katy Carr, well, I'll have to give you a bed bath. Deal?
While I've got you in here,
I'm going to try and help you go to the toilet.
-What do you mean?
-Well, because of your accident,
it means your bowels are working differently.
So you might need some help at first.
What kind of help?
When I was younger, I used to pray to be sick
so I could have the day off school.
Mum would always buy me a magazine and let me watch TV.
It's not the same when you're stuck in a hospital ward,
staring at a picture of a stupid farmyard.
I'd give anything to go home and hang out with Cecy again.
SOBBING That's Naveen.
She cries even more than I do,
especially when her parents visit.
She's the opposite - always happy.
It's so weird.
What is there to be so happy about?
-Hey. How are you, trouble?
-Look what we brought you.
It was Clover's idea.
Clover has so many good ideas, Katy.
It was all of our idea.
We didn't want to bring little Phil, Katy,
because he's just a little kid
and we wanted a proper conversation.
Didn't we, Clover?
Are you not a little kid any more, then, Elsie?
Well, no. I'm like Clover was when you were at home.
-What do you mean?
Well, Clover's like you now. She's boss.
She makes up games for us to play
and she reads to little Phil at bedtime.
I don't do it all the time. I'm not as good as you.
It's OK, Clover.
Don't let us stop you from eating your breakfast, Katy.
I'm finished anyway.

Dexter Holt, turn that stereo off right now
or I'll give you trouble like you've never seen.
What are you doing under here?
Who are you hiding from?
I know a secret and...
-No, never mind.
Well, I heard your dad saying that you like cookie-dough ice cream.
And we have some left in the staff room, so I thought...
I'm not a baby, Nurse Jasmine.
I know what you're trying to do.
OK. So you're not a baby.
Since the accident, you've lost a lot of weight
and in the last four days you've hardly eaten anything.
If this continues, we're going to have to put a tube feed in.
It isn't very nice.
I don't want to eat.
Why on earth not?
I don't want to eat because...then...
I'll have to use the bathroom.
And we'll have to do all that stuff again.
You have to be positive.
Like little Rosemary.
Rosemary is all any of you lot talk about.
For your information, YOU'RE my favourite.
Though heaven knows why, all the trouble you put me through.
You're as bad as Dexter.
Sooner you get stronger in here and here,
sooner they'll let you go home.
But you've got to fight for it -
and let me tell you,
it's going to be the fight of your life.
I wondered when you'd come back for more.
Special fly spray for an especially annoying insect.
It was in the bag the whole time - fool!
-Who are you?
-Why are you still asleep?
-Because I'm ill.
-Mm. And you always will be with that attitude.
What time do you get up at home?
-It's half past nine.
It's not good enough. Jasmine said you wanted to go home.
You don't look like you want to go home.
-I do want to go home.
It's a unicorn wearing a feather boa.
What do you think it is?
Basically, when you can get from your bed into the chair,
that's called a transfer.
When you can do a transfer, they'll let you go home.
I don't think I'm strong enough to do that.
Right, well, that's why I'm here.
OK, sit up. Let's get started.
What's your name?
Helen. The physio.
But people call me Oh, No.
Cos that's what they say when they see me coming.
Come on, chop chop. Let's start with some ball exercises.
Stretch to the front, stretch at the back.
Not bad for a start.
Do your exercises.
If you don't, I'll know.
What am I supposed to do now?
How should I know?
Take your chair out for a spin.
I'm sure you'll find something to keep you busy.

# I feel safest
# This is not the situation
# Black night
# One foot in the grave Til the white light... #
They're really good.
They're really good.
You must be Dexter.
What do you want?
I see you've got space.
Space on the wall.
We have a farmyard.
You know, so you can imagine that you're hanging out with some pigs.
Or feeding some pigs.
Or giving them some...water.
Katy, stop talking about pigs.
Stop talking about pigs!
Yup, goats is SO much better. Good job.
Well, it is a kids' ward.
I know. So many kids!
-What, are you not a kid?
Nah, not like the others anyway.
I get how much being here sucks.
Not like Rosemary, then? She's all the nurses talk about.
Don't get me started.
Why is she so happy all the time?
Well, like you said, she's a kid.
She's not grown-up enough to get it.
I'm going to get out of here soon anyway.
And what makes you think that?
Because I'm Katy Carr.
Right then, Katy Carr, good luck with that.
Why don't you come and see me later?
Meantime, if you could leave me to my drawings, I'd be grateful.
# Till the white light
# Crashes on me Where's my lifeline?
# Am I history?
# Black night will fall. #
So let me get this straight,
you're stuck here and your whole family are going on holiday?
Well, my dad's staying behind to keep me company, but, yeah.
And is Tyler the dog going to Wales, too?
Five minutes to lights out, Dexter.
You too, Katy.
I think you're lucky.
My ideal holiday's on my own.
On a beach, no-one around.
I used to dream of it when I first came here.
I dream all the time.
I dream that I'm a superhero called a Smash Hornet
and I can fly and I've got this super-punch thing called...
HE CHUCKLES ..the stinger and...
Smash Hornet sounds like a pretty lame superhero.
"Er, who are we going to call to save the day, guys?"
"De-de-de, Smash Hornet!"
"Oh, I hope he doesn't get me with his stinger."
HE CHUCKLES It's only a dream.
-What's so funny?
-I mean, look at us.
When have you ever seen a disabled superhero before?
How are you going to fly when you can't even walk?
I was only joking.
-Come on, two more.
-I can't do it.
-Have you been doing your exercises?
I don't believe you. Now, come on, let's try another transfer.
Er, Jasmine. Come here.
Right, now, come on.
-Push yourself back.
-You're all right.
-Push yourself back.
Come on, again.
-And again. Push back.
-You got her?
-I can't do it.
-Yes, you can.
Look, it only took me a few weeks
-to get a transfer right.
-Yeah, well, I'm not you
and I'm not superhuman.
I can't do it.
Look. Look at Rosemary. She's done abso...
Will you all stop with the Rosemary stuff?
The only reason why she's so happy all the time
is because she's too young to realise that her life is over.
Well, you want to be miserable, you want to give up - be my guest.
Do you want some ice cream?
-Have you been around to...?
You go on.
What have you been up to?
Well, nothing much, obviously.
I need a nurse to help me get into my chair
and that's not going to be changing any time soon.
-I've got some terrible news.
Eva Jenkins says she's sort of semi-seeing Ryan.
Who cares? I'm in a hospital bed with a broken back, Cecy.
Look at me.
I couldn't blame her for being awkward,
for being scared.
She hadn't changed, I had,
and now nothing will ever change again.
Tyler! HEAVY METAL PLAYS
That's the thing with visiting hours, you wait around all day
for people to come see you, then it all goes wrong.
-You can't wait for them to leave.
-Yeah, I know.
Like, why would I care who's dating who?
I literally can't go to the toilet on my own.
-I need two people to help me wash.
-Tell me about it.
My best friend text me yesterday all worked up
because Leeds Rhinos beat St Helens.
What did you text back?
-You're too young to hear it.
-I'm not that young.
No, I know.
This sort of stuff makes you grow up fast, too, doesn't it?
I'm glad you're here.
Not that I'm glad you got hurt,
It's nice having someone who understands.
People back home just don't get it.
And how could they?
Sometimes I wonder if I even want to go back.
Look, are you going to pass that popcorn or what?
You're all right, Katy Carr.
You're all right.
Rosemary, are you all right?
I did it. I actually did it.
Are you all right, Rosemary?
I don't want to be like this any more, I want to go back to normal.
Listen, it's going to be OK because you're a really strong person.
You're the strongest person here.
Hey, Croc's Day Out.
I love this book.
-Do you like it?
-I don't know.
Don't tell me no-one has ever read it to you. That's ridiculous.
"Mr Croc didn't have very good eyes
"and whenever he lost his glasses he'd have to sniff his way around.
"'Where's my glasses?'
"he'd shout and he'd...
"He'd sniff about for them.
"'Bother to it,' said Croc.
"'I'll just have to go without them.'
I thought you were in Wales. Where's Dad?
I wanted to show him my transfers.
You did a transfer? Oh, that's brilliant, Katy. Gosh.
-I'm so proud.
-Where is he?
Well, I thought it would be nice for him to have a little holiday,
too, so we switched over.
The truth is he's a bit tired out.
You know how cranky he gets when he's tired.
Anyway, it's really good that we get to hang out.
We're going to be spending a lot of time together from now on.
What do you mean?
When you come home. I'll be the one looking after you.
-Well, who did you think was going to be looking after you?
You can't do it on your own at the moment, can you?
Now then, have you had anything to eat?
You won't get away with this.
If you kill me, someone else will take my place.
What makes you think I want you dead, Smash Hornet?
I want you to stay here and be with me
every day for the rest of your life.
-Well done, mate. Yes.
I'm so pleased. That's really good.
-Oh, well done.
At this rate, you'll be coming home real soon.
Come back this way.
WHISPERS: Oh, no.
No...stop, you're going to hurt yourself.
Don't move her. Don't move her.
-I just want my mum.
I want my real mum.
Well, unbelievably, you don't
seem to have done yourself any serious damage.
What are you doing, Katy? Everyone here is just trying to help you.
I don't want to do a session today.
I didn't come to a session with you.
I came with some good news.
-You can go home.
Because you're doing really well and because I promised you could go
when you can transfer, and you can transfer.
Please, don't make me go home. I'm not ready.
I know it's scary, Katy.
Believe me, I know.
And I know you've already been through the mill before any of this
But there's so much happiness out there for you.
Your family, your friends.
Going back to school.
The world's waiting for you, Katy Carr.
You've got to go attack it.
Good. All right, guys. Welcome home.
-Here we go.
Can you just get the...door for me?
-That'd be great.
-Right, do you want to get the chair
-and I can get her out?
-Yeah, that's what I'm doing.
Right, all good?
Everything was the same, the grass, the kerbs,
-the houses and the cars.
-They said behind her knees.
But it was different as well.
That's it. Well done.
Everything was an obstacle now.
It was all against me
-and it always would be.
-Mind that bit on the... Yeah. Yeah.
Oh, sorry. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
How can you fly when you can't even get up a kerb?
Yeah, there will be a ramp, though...
-Or down a driveway?
Three... All right, and again.
And one, two, three.
How can you fly when you can't even go upstairs?
After several years of you begging and moaning
and generally carrying on, you've finally got your own room.
So things are a little easier with you with the stairs.
So I won't be sharing with Clover any more?
No, Elsie and Clover are going to share from now on.
What do you think?
-Did you see the banner we made?
-It's great to have you back, Katy.
Yeah, it's really nice.
-Phil, be careful.
Will you play a game with us, Katy?
-I was next to Katy and then Elsie shoved me.
All right. OK. I've got an idea.
Why don't we all go into the kitchen to make Katy a card
telling her how much we love her being back home?
-Come on. Good idea.
Can I get the glitter?
Yes, we can have glitter, stickers, anything you like.
Right, er, let's get your jumper off.
Oh, sorry. Arms up.
There we go.
Just, please. I can do it on my own.
Jasmine said you'd need some help until you got used to things.
Well, I say I don't.
-Katy, it's not up for discussion.
-It is up for discussion.
Because it's my body.
And I don't want YOU washing me.
I don't want you seeing me without any clothes on.
-For you. Nice and warm.
-OK. Warm enough?
It is so good to have you home.
It's honestly not been the same without you here.
Hey, pretty soon you'll be able to join your mates at high school.

DOG BARKS Tyler!
Good boy. Good boy, Tyler.
Howdy, Smash Hornet.
-What's going on?
-Nothing, I just...
It's so difficult, Dex.
Washing and sleeping and moving about.
-And they're even talking about school and...
Take a breath.
I know you're freaking out but I'm not worried about you.
Because you're Katy Carr.
Dexter Holt, turn that phone off right now.
Oh, got to go, lights out at eight.
You know what she's like.
