Hey, everybody.

0:01:060:01:07

We're having a party later for Mam and Dad.

0:01:070:01:10

It's their wedding...anniversary?

0:01:100:01:14

-Roy! Are you ready, love?

-Coming!

0:01:140:01:17

Wait till you see what me and Becky have got them for a present.

0:01:170:01:22

Final rehearsal, kids! Break a leg.

0:01:220:01:26

ROY GASPS

0:01:260:01:28

It's a saying, Roy. It means good luck.

0:01:280:01:30

Oh, right!

0:01:300:01:32

Thanks, Mr Barker.

0:01:320:01:33

And, here we go.

0:01:330:01:36

Now...

0:01:360:01:37

FRENCH ACCORDION WALTZ PLAYS

0:01:370:01:41

Very good.

0:01:430:01:44

Here's to you, kids!

0:01:460:01:48

The best students me and Barbara ever taught.

0:01:490:01:52

You really mean that?

0:01:520:01:54

But, Mr Barker, I thought you said I had two left feet.

0:01:540:01:57

Erm...

0:01:570:01:59

Oh... That's only a saying, Roy.

0:01:590:02:02

Oh, like break a leg?

0:02:020:02:04

-He-he!

-Exactly.

0:02:040:02:06

And Mr Barker was wrong to say it in the first place, right, Reg?

0:02:060:02:10

Oh...100%.

0:02:100:02:12

You and Becky are smashing little dancers.

0:02:120:02:15

-Good enough to win competitions.

-Like you and Mrs Barker?

0:02:150:02:19

We're not THAT good.

0:02:190:02:21

You ARE, Becky. You're amazing.

0:02:210:02:23

But me?

0:02:230:02:25

I just hope I don't mess up in front of Mam and Dad.

0:02:250:02:29

Don't be so hard on yourself, Roy.

0:02:290:02:32

You're going to be great.

0:02:320:02:34

I don't mind dancing here with no-one watching,

0:02:340:02:37

but how many people will be at the party?

0:02:370:02:40

What if I get nervous?

0:02:400:02:42

But everybody does.

0:02:420:02:43

It's perfectly natural.

0:02:430:02:45

But that's where the training kicks in.

0:02:450:02:48

Don't worry, Roy. We won't let anyone down.

0:02:480:02:51

No.

0:02:510:02:52

THEY CHUCKLE

0:02:520:02:54

So, go on, Bill, tell us, how did you pop the big question?

0:02:580:03:02

-Er...

-Go on, spill the beans!

0:03:020:03:04

Er... Well, er...

0:03:060:03:09

-I bought the ring, didn't I?

-Yeah.

0:03:090:03:12

And, er...then I booked a table in a fancy Italian restaurant.

0:03:120:03:16

Oh, so he brought you to Italy?

0:03:160:03:18

No. It was in Crumlin.

0:03:180:03:21

Erm... So, anyway, I had the ring, and, er...

0:03:210:03:24

then I picked Mo up in my car.

0:03:240:03:26

This all sounds so lovely.

0:03:260:03:29

And, er, then on the way there...

0:03:290:03:32

-We ran out of petrol.

-It started raining cats and dogs.

0:03:320:03:36

-Three hours straight.

-Three hours.

-No!

0:03:360:03:39

Did you even make it to the restaurant?

0:03:390:03:41

-Lucky enough, I had an umbrella in the boot.

-Oh, yeah.

0:03:410:03:45

So we made it to Get Stuffed eventually.

0:03:450:03:48

-Huh?

-Get Stuffed?

-That was the name of the restaurant.

0:03:480:03:52

The Italian restaurant.

0:03:520:03:54

And then I asked Mo to make me the happiest man in the world forever.

0:03:550:04:00

And I said yes.

0:04:000:04:02

Yes, you did. Mwah!

0:04:020:04:05

So, go on, Jimmy, how did you propose?

0:04:050:04:08

I bet you it was in Paris, was it?

0:04:080:04:10

-It was, actually.

-Yeah.

0:04:100:04:12

When Ireland were playing France in the rugby.

0:04:130:04:16

Oh!

0:04:160:04:17

OK, Bill, you got me.

0:04:210:04:23

Yours was the most romantic proposal.

0:04:230:04:25

-MR BARKER:

-Good afternoon, everybody!

0:04:250:04:28

Hello, hello, hello! Could I have your attention, please?

0:04:280:04:32

-BILL:

-Er, no!

-LAUGHTER

0:04:320:04:35

Happy anniversary, Bill and Morag.

0:04:350:04:37

-MR BARKER:

-Oh, yes.

-And as a special surprise to mark the occasion,

0:04:370:04:41

we are extremely proud to introduce to you...

0:04:410:04:45

ROY BREATHES HEAVILY

0:04:590:05:02

Are you all right?

0:05:020:05:04

HE CONTINUES TO BREATHE HEAVILY

0:05:040:05:06

Just imagine we're in the back garden with no-one watching us.

0:05:060:05:12

Yeah, OK...!

0:05:120:05:13

Oh, look at that!

0:05:150:05:17

Are you sure you can do this, Roy? We don't have to.

0:05:180:05:22

ROY WHIMPERS

-MO:

-My poor baby, look at him. He's a nervous wreck.

0:05:290:05:32

-We'll have to do something.

-We can't. If we step in there,

0:05:320:05:36

-he'll feel even worse.

-Whoa-oa-oa-oa!

0:05:360:05:41

Oh! Whoa-oa-oa!

Get some water, someone!

0:06:130:06:16

This is so embarrassing!

0:06:160:06:18

Try and move, everybody's worried about you.

0:06:180:06:21

Hey, hey, he blinked.

0:06:230:06:25

-Are you sure?

-Did he?

-Do it again, Roy.

0:06:250:06:28

Roy. Roy, can you hear us?

0:06:310:06:34

'An someone 'elp me up, 'ease?

0:06:340:06:39

Say it again, son.

0:06:390:06:40

Can someone help me up, 'ease?

0:06:400:06:43

Help him up, Roy wants us to help him up.

0:06:430:06:46

Well done, Tristan.

0:06:460:06:47

On three. One, two, three.

0:06:470:06:50

-Bill!

-Whoa.

0:06:520:06:55

-BECKY:

-What next? How can we help you?

0:06:550:06:57

'Alk 'e 'ound the 'oom.

0:06:570:07:00

-"Walk me round the room."

-MO:

-Right, OK.

0:07:000:07:05

-BECKY:

-Roy, look!

0:07:150:07:18

-MO:

-Aw! Are you OK, sweetheart?

0:07:180:07:21

I ruined your surprise.

0:07:230:07:25

But you're moving again, that's all we care about.

0:07:250:07:28

I let you down and Mr and Mrs Barker.

0:07:280:07:32

And Becky.

0:07:320:07:34

I'm really sorry.

0:07:340:07:36

You didn't let anyone down, you were really brave.

0:07:360:07:40

Can we try the dance again?

0:07:400:07:42

No way.

0:07:420:07:43

Thank you for the lovely surprise, it was beautiful,

0:07:430:07:46

but no gift is worth you freezing frame, huh?

JAUNTY MUSIC PLAYS

0:08:040:08:07

It's not fair. Why can't I dance as good in front of people?

0:08:110:08:15

I know how you feel, Roy.

0:08:150:08:17

Whenever a teacher asks me a question in the class,

0:08:170:08:20

-I go the same way.

-You freeze-frame?

0:08:200:08:23

My mind goes blank and I can't speak.

0:08:230:08:27

-Why do you think that is?

-Mam told me not to worry.

0:08:270:08:30

Some people are just shyer than others.

0:08:300:08:32

Does that mean you'll always be frightened to do things

0:08:320:08:36

-in front of people?

-I guess so.

-But that's terrible.

0:08:360:08:39

Yeah, sorry, Roy.

0:08:390:08:41

There must be some way to stop feeling nervous.

0:08:470:08:50

What would Wonder Roy do?

0:08:510:08:53

Finn, what is it?

0:09:010:09:03

-Look!

-Ooh. Huh?

The first annual Villy Awards.

0:09:060:09:08

Nominated Superhero Nemesis and Sidekick of the Year.

0:09:080:09:13

-I need to work on the award speech.

-Speech?

0:09:130:09:16

For the ceremony.

0:09:190:09:20

What? It's at City Hall?

0:09:200:09:23

It's sold out? They're showing it live on TV?

0:09:230:09:26

TV?!

0:09:260:09:28

It's a trap. The supervillains made up the Villy Awards to trick us.

0:09:290:09:34

You seemed excited till I mentioned making a speech in public.

0:09:340:09:37

-Are you afraid of doing that?

-I'm a superhero, I fear nothing.

0:09:370:09:42

Urgh!

0:09:420:09:43

HE WHIMPERS I want to go home, Finn. Please?

What? THEY LAUGH

0:10:350:10:37

You silly fools, the only award you'll be winning

0:10:370:10:40

is falling for the most obvious trap ever.

THEY LAUGH

-Ah!

Thanks again for this wonderful award.

0:11:010:11:04

Thanks to you too, Finn.

0:11:040:11:06

I never would've faced my fear without you.

ROY EXHALES

0:11:180:11:21

It's time to face your fear, Roy.

0:11:230:11:25

I know you can beat it.

0:11:250:11:28

-This is all my fault.

-It's no-one's fault.

0:11:310:11:35

I pushed him too hard

0:11:350:11:36

and I said that thing about him having two left feet.

0:11:360:11:40

-Roy.

-How are you, son? Are you feeling better?

0:11:400:11:43

No, but I will if I try again.

0:11:430:11:45

What are you doing?

0:11:470:11:48

Dancing for Mam and Dad like we practised.

0:11:480:11:51

But your nerves, I don't want you freezing frame again.

0:11:510:11:55

-MO:

-Becky's right, it's too risky.

0:11:550:11:57

Please, Mam, just let me try.

0:11:570:12:00

I am afraid to dance in front of people,

0:12:000:12:03

but the only way not to be afraid is to do the thing

0:12:030:12:07

you're afraid of, right?

0:12:070:12:09

Go on, knock our socks off.

0:12:100:12:13

-Come on, Roy!

-Come on, Roy!

-Whoa.

-Roy! Oh, no, it's happening again.

0:13:140:13:17

Don't worry, I'm just tired

0:13:170:13:20

from all that dancing.

0:13:200:13:22

Are you sure you're OK?

0:13:220:13:24

Never better.

0:13:240:13:25

You did it, Roy, the thing you were most afraid of.

0:13:250:13:28

And you can too, Tristan.

0:13:280:13:30

Next time your teacher asks you a question,

0:13:300:13:33

all you have to do is think of me and be brave.
