# They were burning themselves out in the sun

# Worlds away from anyone

0:00:060:00:09

# They were burning themselves out in the sun

0:00:090:00:12

# There was just enough to get that far away... #

0:00:120:00:18

So here we are...Sydney, Australia,

0:00:340:00:37

in our ritzy new apartment, courtesy of the radio station

0:00:370:00:40

my mum's been working for the past three months.

0:00:400:00:42

I do now have my own radio show.

0:00:420:00:45

Monday through Friday, every afternoon, let joy be unconfined.

0:00:450:00:49

Although, honestly, I only have a million or so listeners.

0:00:490:00:54

Who would have thought devoting myself to poetry full time

0:00:540:00:58

would pay such...dividends?

0:00:580:01:00

Sure, there's a small amount of lecturing involved

0:01:000:01:04

at the science academy, but for the most part,

0:01:040:01:07

they leave me alone to conduct my groundbreaking research.

0:01:070:01:10

-We're home!

-Aaah!

0:01:100:01:13

Hi!

0:01:130:01:14

And I'm happy too. I imagine you surf sponsors are even happier.

0:01:190:01:23

Guess the time really was right to leave Angelus.

0:01:230:01:26

I miss Egg, of course. For a time there he was my best friend ever.

0:01:260:01:30

And then Vicki, the girl who seemed to hold

0:01:300:01:33

a lifetime season ticket to my heart.

0:01:330:01:35

And Mel. I just had this feeling that after certain events,

0:01:350:01:39

involving kissing and standing her up, I'd kind of worn my welcome out.

0:01:390:01:44

Suggestions, please. A word that rhymes with fire brigade. Um...

0:01:440:01:51

Everglade.

0:01:510:01:53

Marmalade.

0:01:530:01:55

Marmalade.

0:01:550:01:57

Marmalade. Marmalade...

0:01:570:02:02

Marmalade, Lockie.

0:02:040:02:06

Pass the marmalade, please.

0:02:060:02:08

'OK, so maybe we haven't left Angelus yet.

0:02:080:02:12

'But it wasn't long before we did.'

0:02:120:02:14

Oh.

0:02:140:02:16

Sorry, Sarge, I was miles away.

0:02:160:02:18

Right. Now, team, as it's only two days

0:02:180:02:22

until we...leave Angelus forever...

0:02:220:02:25

PFFFFFFTT!

0:02:250:02:29

Pardon you, Blob.

0:02:290:02:30

Again. Don't know what's got into her.

0:02:300:02:34

In the meantime, I thought it might be an idea to move the weekly

0:02:340:02:38

Leonard family meetings to a daily basis,

0:02:380:02:41

so that we can get across all our various to-do lists.

0:02:410:02:44

-Lockie, you first.

-Oh, right.

0:02:440:02:46

To-do list.

0:02:460:02:48

'Pack surfboard.

0:02:480:02:51

'Say goodbye.

0:02:510:02:52

'Say goodbye. Easier said than done.

0:02:520:02:56

'Maybe it was time to talk to someone who'd set sail

0:02:560:02:59

'for more towns than anyone I'd ever heard of.

0:02:590:03:03

'And talking about something was better than not talking at all.'

0:03:030:03:08

I've come for tips, Mel. How to make that grand exit,

0:03:120:03:16

you've done it heaps. Do I go for tears or laughs?

0:03:160:03:20

-Are there speeches?

-So you're assuming you'll be missed?

0:03:200:03:24

Oh, you!

0:03:240:03:25

Sure, I'll help. But my question is...have you got the guts

0:03:250:03:29

to carry out the three tasks I'm about to set you?

0:03:290:03:33

Task one...

0:03:340:03:36

'OK, I didn't have to carry out Mel's tasks,

0:03:360:03:39

'but just maybe she'd think better of me if I did.

0:03:390:03:43

'So, task one, I had to make peace with my worst enemy.

0:03:430:03:46

'And since it was the weekend, I knew exactly where to find him.'

0:03:460:03:51

Sir, I'd just like to say...

0:03:510:03:55

thank you. For everything you've tried to teach me.

0:03:550:03:59

Math-wise.

0:03:590:04:00

I'm...sorry, Leonard.

0:04:000:04:02

I find myself strangely morose at your family's departure.

0:04:020:04:08

Yeah, it will be tough without Phillip.

0:04:080:04:11

It's not that. Though Phillip is obviously a great loss.

0:04:110:04:15

-It's you, Leonard Major, you're the one I'm going to miss.

-I am?

0:04:150:04:21

Even I need someone like you, Leonard, the class dunce,

0:04:210:04:26

so that my little gems of sarcasm

0:04:260:04:29

might fill the classroom with howling laughter.

0:04:290:04:33

Right.

0:04:350:04:36

Go, boy. Leave me to bring the curtain down on this golden age.

0:04:380:04:43

'Sarge didn't really have any worst enemies to make peace with,

0:04:500:04:54

'but making his goodbyes to Angelus

0:04:540:04:56

'was still the hardest thing he'd ever had to do.'

0:04:560:04:59

-Oh, steady on. Now, remember, we're trained professionals.

-Course we are.

0:04:590:05:04

Got it.

0:05:040:05:05

What about your poetry book, Sarge?

0:05:050:05:08

Ever since Joy's wedding ring was stolen

0:05:080:05:11

I'm no longer certain poetry has a place in the Angelus of today.

0:05:110:05:15

-Don't say such things!

-That can't be true, say it isn't so!

0:05:150:05:19

From now on, you'll be leading this ceaseless war on crime in this town.

0:05:190:05:24

Whether poetry has a role to play, it's your call now.

0:05:240:05:28

PHONE RINGS

0:05:280:05:30

It's the emergency phone.

0:05:300:05:33

After you, Sarge.

0:05:330:05:35

One last response.

0:05:370:05:38

-DOORS SLAM

-It's Dad.

0:05:420:05:44

He's had some bad news.

0:05:440:05:46

Josh's family's empire's gone into meltdown

0:05:460:05:49

and brought Dad's business down with it.

0:05:490:05:51

We've lost all our money, our house, furniture, everything.

0:05:510:05:55

-I'm so sorry, Vicki.

-Doesn't look like they're going to be building

0:05:550:05:59

a retirement village, or anything here any more.

0:05:590:06:03

-Looks like your house is safe, though.

-You seem to be forgetting,

0:06:030:06:07

all of this will soon be Constable Wattle's domain.

0:06:070:06:11

It'll always be your house to me.

0:06:110:06:13

There's nothing to worry about.

0:06:130:06:16

We'll be getting all our money back shortly. 3.30 at the latest.

0:06:160:06:20

-Dad's in denial.

-Just you wait, Sergeant.

0:06:200:06:23

I always said your family's what's holding this town back.

0:06:230:06:27

I think this is you, Constable Wattle.

0:06:270:06:29

Ahem. Mr Streeton?

0:06:290:06:33

No point talking what you could have been,

0:06:330:06:37

or regretting the things that went on.

0:06:370:06:41

Life's full of mistakes, destinies and fate.

0:06:410:06:45

Remove the clouds, look at the bigger picture.

0:06:450:06:50

# And all that you'll see is me

0:06:500:06:55

# And all I truly believe

0:06:570:07:01

# That I was born to try

0:07:020:07:05

# I've learned to love

0:07:060:07:08

# To be understanding

0:07:090:07:12

# And believe in life

0:07:120:07:15

# But you gotta make choices

0:07:160:07:19

# Be wrong or right

0:07:200:07:22

# Sometimes you've got to sacrifice the things you like...

0:07:240:07:29

# But I was born to try... #

0:07:310:07:33

I just want someone to tell me it isn't fair.

0:07:330:07:39

That's gold, Constable Wattle. You've taken policing to a whole new level.

0:07:390:07:44

'Mel's second task was a lot tougher.

0:07:440:07:46

'I wasn't sure I was going to be able to complete it.'

0:07:460:07:49

-You have to do what?

-I've to do the one thing I've always meant to do

0:07:490:07:53

with someone, but never have.

0:07:530:07:54

Have you stopped to think there's a reason why I've never surfed.

0:07:540:07:58

-Couldn't swim?

-No, because it's sick and unnatural,

0:07:580:08:01

and you get nutted in the goolies. All the time.

0:08:010:08:04

I'll never ask you to do anything for me again.

0:08:040:08:07

You won't have to if I get caught in a rip.

0:08:070:08:09

Let's do this for old times sake!

0:08:090:08:11

-There's no one else on the planet I'd do this for.

-I know. On the count of three.

0:08:110:08:16

One...two...

0:08:160:08:19

three!

0:08:190:08:20

'Of course, things don't ever work out the way you expect them to.'

0:08:200:08:25

-Oh!

-Ow!

0:08:250:08:27

'So much for task number two.

0:08:270:08:30

'I guess it was more than a friend could ask for.

0:08:300:08:34

'Meanwhile, Phillip was nearing the end of his to-do list,

0:08:360:08:39

'but he'd saved the trickiest bit till last.'

0:08:390:08:42

Don't worry, Cyril. Nothing will change.

0:08:420:08:46

Not really. Nothing at all.

0:08:460:08:49

Except it won't be me looking after you...it'll be Joe.

0:08:490:08:55

Unusual. After all this time, I must have developed an allergy to Cyril.

0:09:010:09:09

-Are you sure it's not anything else?

-Goodness me, Joe. Allergy.

0:09:090:09:15

'And Mum, of course, she had an entire town to say goodbye to.'

0:09:150:09:20

Sadly now it's time for me to bring this final edition

0:09:200:09:24

of Let Joy Be Unconfined to a close.

0:09:240:09:27

But I can't go without one last thank you

0:09:270:09:31

to all my listeners out there.

0:09:310:09:34

People of Angelus, you have taken an ordinary mum into your hearts

0:09:350:09:40

and made me feel very special.

0:09:400:09:43

So, for the last time,

0:09:450:09:47

this is Joy Leonard saying I will never forget you.

0:09:470:09:52

I might just step outside for some fresh air.

0:10:000:10:03

CHEERING

0:10:040:10:07

# For she's a jolly good fellow For she's a jolly good fellow... #

0:10:070:10:11

-I just can't understand these tears.

-And Cyril isn't even here,

0:10:110:10:15

so it can't be an allergy, and it's not as if you're crying over me.

0:10:150:10:19

It just doesn't make any sense.

0:10:190:10:21

Three cheers for Mrs L!

0:10:210:10:23

Hip, hip. Hooray! Hip, hip. Hooray!

0:10:240:10:27

-Hip, hip. Hooray!

-Get away with you, it was nothing!

0:10:270:10:31

Really, it was my pleasure.

0:10:310:10:33

ALL: Awww!

0:10:330:10:35

'Mel's third and final task involved Vicki,

0:10:350:10:38

'which meant paying a visit to the Streetons' new home.'

0:10:380:10:42

-Hi, Mr Streeton.

-G'day, Larry. How you going, mate?

0:10:420:10:46

Bit of a comeuppance, isn't it, Lionel?

0:10:460:10:50

Still, got to look on the bright side, eh?

0:10:500:10:53

Yeah.

0:10:530:10:55

Cooee! Hello, Lockie!

0:10:550:10:57

Visitors already. Vicki? Visitors!

0:10:570:11:02

See ya.

0:11:060:11:08

-Hi.

-Hi.

0:11:120:11:13

I'm sorry about your house and everything.

0:11:130:11:16

It's OK. It's been good, actually.

0:11:160:11:19

You're just saying that, aren't you?

0:11:190:11:21

No, it's true. We've already spent more time together

0:11:210:11:24

than what we would've in the last six months.

0:11:240:11:27

You have to get pretty up close and personal in a caravan.

0:11:270:11:30

-That's what you've always wanted, isn't it? To be closer as a family.

-Always.

0:11:300:11:35

Hey, do you want to go for a walk?

0:11:350:11:37

'OK, Lockie. Mel's third and final and most difficult of tasks...'

0:11:370:11:42

Tell the person you care the most about exactly why.

0:11:420:11:46

-Hey, so, listen...

-This is so weird. After all this time,

0:11:460:11:50

you're the one that's leaving and I'm the one that's staying behind.

0:11:500:11:54

You're not staying right here exactly. You're going back to boarding school.

0:11:540:11:58

With all those pricey school fees? I don't think so.

0:11:580:12:01

-I'm starting back at Angelus High tomorrow.

-Say that again!

0:12:010:12:05

I'm staying right here in Angelus.

0:12:050:12:09

-Listen...

-I have something to say before you go.

0:12:120:12:15

-So do I.

-I know we've had our ups and downs,

0:12:150:12:18

but there's one thing that I'm sure of...even when I'm 90,

0:12:180:12:22

I'm still going to be thinking about you.

0:12:220:12:25

Every day. What?

0:12:250:12:26

What are you grinning for?

0:12:260:12:28

You just took the words right out of my mouth. Every last one of them.

0:12:280:12:33

'So, mission accomplished. It was time to report back to Mel.'

0:12:350:12:39

All done, Mel. Three out of three.

0:12:390:12:43

The three tasks I set you. Are you truly so mind bogglingly dumb

0:12:430:12:48

you couldn't see that they were all about me?

0:12:480:12:51

You could have at least TRIED to make peace with your worst enemy.

0:12:510:12:56

What?! Mel, you're not my worst enemy.

0:12:560:13:00

-Why would you say that?

-It'd have been nice if you'd said so.

0:13:000:13:03

And while we're on the subject, I don't see why you couldn't have done

0:13:030:13:07

the one thing you always meant to do with someone, but never have.

0:13:070:13:11

Like surfing, at the same time, on separate boards.

0:13:110:13:15

With me, and not with Egg.

0:13:150:13:18

And here's the best one...

0:13:190:13:21

You could have told the person you cared the most about

0:13:210:13:26

exactly why they'd been so important to you.

0:13:260:13:29

See? Anybody can see I'll never mean as much to you as Vicki does.

0:13:310:13:36

On the other hand,

0:13:360:13:39

Vicki's about as good on a surfboard as a fish is on a bicycle.

0:13:390:13:43

And if you can live with that,

0:13:440:13:47

I think I should be able to.

0:13:470:13:51

Egg's board's still got a few hours before it's due back.

0:13:520:13:55

If you're free.

0:13:550:13:56

Unless you're not done yelling at me, that is.

0:13:560:14:00

'So here's the thing...

0:14:010:14:03

'When I thought about what I'd be leaving behind,

0:14:030:14:06

'like the best friend I'd ever had,

0:14:060:14:09

'and a girl who wasn't going to shake herself out of my head

0:14:090:14:12

'till we were 90 years old,

0:14:120:14:13

'and a surfing buddy who loved the ocean just as much as I did,

0:14:130:14:17

'I had to ask myself...

0:14:170:14:19

'Why were we leaving, again?'

0:14:190:14:21

Listen.

0:14:210:14:22

GENTLE CROAKING

0:14:220:14:24

It's the frogs.

0:14:240:14:26

They're back.

0:14:290:14:30

Music of the night, we used to call it.

0:14:300:14:33

She's a very impressive woman, your mother.

0:14:330:14:36

I hope you realise that.

0:14:360:14:38

-I do.

-The impact she's had on Angelus.

0:14:380:14:41

-Watch out, Sydney.

-Yeah.

0:14:430:14:46

Watch out.

0:14:460:14:48

If she hadn't have lost her wedding ring,

0:14:480:14:50

we might have stayed...

0:14:500:14:52

But if my message of police work and poetry can't...

0:14:520:14:55

prevent theft in my own town,

0:14:550:14:58

might as well pack it up and waddle off into the sunset.

0:14:580:15:03

'It was true.

0:15:080:15:09

'With the frogs back, this place felt even more like home.

0:15:090:15:13

'Which made the thought of leaving even weirder.'

0:15:130:15:16

Phillip...are you crying?

0:15:160:15:19

It's just one of those unsolved scientific...mysteries.

0:15:190:15:24

I'm sure they'll find the answer...

0:15:240:15:26

in time.

0:15:260:15:29

Do you think there's a chance it might just

0:15:310:15:34

-have something to do with leaving Angelus?

-What?!

0:15:340:15:36

Leaving our home, and Angelus, and our friends,

0:15:360:15:41

to live thousands of miles away on the other side of the country?

0:15:410:15:45

As if!

0:15:450:15:47

Yeah, yes.

0:15:540:15:55

Of course I have to come to Sydney to do the show. Yes.

0:15:550:15:58

Yeah, absolutely.

0:15:580:16:00

It would be ludicrous of me to think I could record it from Angelus.

0:16:000:16:04

Yes, I know!

0:16:040:16:06

-How silly is that?

-< BABY CRIES

0:16:060:16:08

Er... Excuse me. Lockie...

0:16:110:16:13

Would you see to Blob?

0:16:130:16:15

I'm just on the phone to...

0:16:160:16:18

To Beyonce.

0:16:180:16:20

Yes, Beyonce!

0:16:250:16:27

Derek, I'm here.

0:16:270:16:28

Dirty nappy. Good-o.

0:16:280:16:31

Come on, Blob. Lay down.

0:16:310:16:34

Thank you.

0:16:340:16:35

'I figured out why Blob had been so grumpy lately.

0:16:410:16:44

'Sitting on a secret, not being able to tell anyone, can be stressful.

0:16:440:16:48

'Especially one so big it could just change everything.

0:16:480:16:53

Seeing as this is our, er... last day in this house,

0:16:530:16:58

and with the power due to be cut off prior to our departure around 3pm,

0:16:580:17:02

-I would hope we have completed the tasks on our "to do" list.

-Check.

0:17:020:17:06

Check.

0:17:070:17:08

Lockie?

0:17:080:17:10

Well... there is one last item I'd like to factor in.

0:17:130:17:18

-A farewell party? We'd love to come!

-I wouldn't miss it!

-I'm there!

0:17:190:17:22

-And you want us to bring some cake?

-Cake?

-TOGETHER: That's affirmative.

0:17:220:17:26

Oh, now that's funny, I thought we were to bring the cake. Never mind.

0:17:260:17:31

They're past their use-by date, but that's not going to hurt anyone.

0:17:310:17:34

We wouldn't want to see them going to waste, would we?

0:17:340:17:38

Rev.

0:17:390:17:40

Joy, Sarge, I wonder if you could step this way, please?

0:17:420:17:46

Goodness me, look at all those cakes.

0:17:490:17:52

How are we supposed to eat those? We'll be gone in an hour.

0:17:520:17:55

An hour? Oof!

0:17:550:17:57

MUSIC: "Bridal Chorus" by Richard Wagner

0:18:030:18:05

Mum, Sarge,

0:18:110:18:13

I know you've always wanted to renew your wedding vows, but...

0:18:130:18:17

I think you'll be needing this...

0:18:170:18:20

Oh, Lockie!

0:18:220:18:24

Oh, Lockie, where on earth did you find my wedding ring?

0:18:250:18:28

Trust me, you don't want to know,

0:18:280:18:30

but I don't think I'll be going back there very soon.

0:18:300:18:33

OK, folks, we're racing for time here.

0:18:440:18:47

Gather round, please.

0:18:470:18:48

OK, Sarge,

0:18:490:18:51

quick as you can.

0:18:510:18:52

Do you take Joy...

0:18:520:18:54

Hold it right there!

0:18:540:18:56

You drive a hard bargain, Joy Leonard,

0:18:590:19:01

but OK, you win.

0:19:010:19:03

If it means you'll stay with our radio station,

0:19:040:19:07

then you can do your show from Angelus.

0:19:070:19:09

And I guess we'll have to double your salary while we're at it.

0:19:100:19:14

Um...

0:19:170:19:19

I see.

0:19:190:19:20

Um, Rev, could we just have one second?

0:19:200:19:23

-SARGE:

-Please, nobody go anywhere.

0:19:230:19:25

Leonards, family meeting inside now.

0:19:250:19:28

Sorry, Reverend, we'll just be a... Just one second.

0:19:290:19:34

This extraordinary family conference is now in session, agreed?

0:19:360:19:39

TOGETHER: Agreed.

0:19:390:19:41

We have matters to discuss that impact on our...

0:19:410:19:44

Cut to the chase, Sarge.

0:19:440:19:45

Who votes we stay in Angelus?

0:19:470:19:49

-I do!

-I do.

0:19:490:19:51

I do.

0:20:030:20:04

And I do too.

0:20:050:20:07

Which means we stay in Angelus.

0:20:080:20:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:20:100:20:12

How about that?

0:20:230:20:25

We don't have to leave Angelus to get everything we want,

0:20:250:20:28

everything we want has been in Angelus all along.

0:20:280:20:31

It's true what they say - "You can have your cake and throw it too."

0:20:310:20:34

Don't you mean eat it?

0:20:340:20:35

Oh!

0:20:380:20:40

Ah!

0:20:570:20:58

You didn't seem that worried

0:21:300:21:32

that I'd be leaving Angelus and you'd never see me again.

0:21:320:21:35

I wasn't.

0:21:350:21:36

You were never leaving Angelus.

0:21:360:21:39

I wasn't?

0:21:390:21:40

Why not?

0:21:400:21:42

Because you love me, Lockie Leonard.

0:21:430:21:45

Yeah.

0:21:470:21:49

I do.

0:21:500:21:51

-I suppose I should probably see about getting the power put on tomorrow.

-Yes, probably.

0:22:060:22:12

Yeah, good idea.

0:22:120:22:13

I guess so.

0:22:130:22:14

CREAKING

0:22:140:22:17

'Still, there's one thing about the Leonards -

0:22:170:22:20

'wherever we find ourselves and whatever we do,

0:22:200:22:23

'we can always make our own fun.'

0:22:230:22:25

TOGETHER: # When I see you, baby

0:22:250:22:27

# I go outta my head

0:22:270:22:29

# And I just can't get enough

0:22:290:22:31

# And I just can't get enough

0:22:310:22:32

# Ooh-ooh-ooh

0:22:320:22:34

# We slip and slide as we fall in love

0:22:340:22:36

# And I just can't seem to

0:22:360:22:39

# Get enough of

0:22:390:22:41

-# Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo

-Bam, bam-bam

0:22:410:22:43

-# Doo doo doo doo-doo doo doo

-Bam, bam-bam... #

As they prepare for the move to Sydney, the Leonards say goodbye to Angelus. But the question remains for Lockie - will Mel ever forgive him? And will he have the chance to tell Vicki Streeton how he really feels about her?
