I need your help with Sasha.
Well, only if I get my room back.
I'm on it, don't worry.
-What do you want me to do?
I just want you to make sure that she keeps to the rules, all right?
That's Trevor Ted. Found your room!
No, don't you dare!
You can't live here.
You'll miss us too much.
You've got Mum, and here's good.
-Better than the secure home.
Where I'll end up if you make me blow my week's trial.
Jody, can you hurry Sasha up, please?
What? So I'm her personal slave now?
Oh, please, watch your tone. I'm busy.
Something really weird just happened.
Some guy just rocks up
and starts chucking loads of old metal into our garden.
Are you sure you weren't hallucinating?
-Overdone the wine gums again, Tyler?
Excuse me, what's the joke?
I can be in care, too.
Then we can still be together.
No, you couldn't. You're not naughty enough.
-Is that why they lock you in?
-I could smash my way in here and get you out.
I have to show Mike he can trust me.
KNOCK ON DOOR
Who are you talking to?
Lunch is ready so Mike says come downstairs.
When are you going to learn your rights and your lefts?
We've got to get you out of here.
-A trampoline, of course.
-It's from the internet.
It's when people give away the stuff they don't want.
I know that. I've done it millions of times.
-No, you haven't.
-What is that heap of junk?
It's our trampoline!
Really? Because it looks like
you've just saved someone a trip to the dump.
-The man said some assembling would be required.
-Yes! A spring!
It's a surprise for Mike and May-Li and everyone.
You won't be laughing when you're begging for a go!
The taxi's meeting you at the end of the street in five minutes.
Can't you take me?
I'm not allowed to just go out when I want.
Oh, and take this. It's all I've got.
Don't come here again.
Talking to yourself again?
It's a good thing I came to check on you.
It's being stuck in here all day. It's doing my head in.
I need to get out.
-You reckon Mike and May-Li'd let me go to the park?
-Ah, I doubt it.
If you came with me, though.
Oh, please, Jody.
I just want to show I can be trusted.
All right. We'll ask.
One hour and not a minute longer.
Oh, go on, Mike, throw in ice cream money.
You stick with Jody, yeah? No gallivanting off on your own.
Got you. Jody's totally in charge.
Hello, Ashdene Ridge.
An accident report? Yeah, it was hot gravy.
You want to do a health and safety inspection?
When's the next bus?
Oi, lazy. The park's only down the road.
-You go. I'll be back in an hour.
You just lied to me and Mike?
-Sasha, he was dead nice to you and everything.
-I had to.
-What's important is you sticking to the rules.
I'm trying. That's why I've got to go home and get something
-or really bad stuff's going to happen.
-What bad stuff?
With my dumb kid brother,
and I've got 55 minutes left now.
Well, I told Mike that we'd stick together
and I don't go back on my word,
so we'll get the bus.
-Easy. Easy. I'm going to slip on the grass.
-Easy. Easy. Easy.
-Wait there. Wait there.
-Do you know what's going on?
-Not a clue.
It's our new trampoline! Mine and Billie's.
New. Second hand. Only a tiny bit broken.
OK, kids, just step off the trampoline now, please.
-Come on. Off you come.
-Look at the rust! It's lethal. Come off.
it might look safe to you, but we just can't risk it.
-Come on now.
-You can have the first bounce just to test it.
-Oh, Mike, please.
No, no-one is bouncing at all, right?
I know you meant well, but this is going straight to a scrapyard.
I don't want you lot going anywhere near it, all right?
And that includes you too, Floss Guppy.
I don't want you to even touch the tape,
do you understand?
-Do you understand or not? ALL:
Good. Thank you for answering me.
I'm going to go and call a scrap metal man now.
It's time to leave the garden, please. Come on.
It's just like my old place.
Where is it?
You know what. I need my key back.
Your room key? How did you get that?
-When I visited.
It doesn't matter.
Come on, we're going to be late, let's go.
Your mum is here though, right?
Yeah, course she is.
She has to work nights sometimes.
So who looks after your brothers when she's gone?
Sasha did, till she got taken.
Yeah, and the social workers said Mum'd cope better without me.
-Sort Murphy out, he stinks.
-I can't find any nappies.
-Look harder, then.
-I don't like it without you.
Come on, you're a big boy now.
You're in charge. Come on.
So how come your social worker
thought your mum would be better off without you?
Because I was giving her grief.
What sort of grief?
Staying out all night.
They reckon she didn't set me proper boundaries.
So who looks after your brothers, then?
I only went out when my mum was home.
I wouldn't leave them on their own.
You try being with two kids all day.
I needed to chill with my mates.
Mates who keep you out all night?
Older ones. Boys and that.
The social workers thought they were using me,
but they weren't.
It's not your fault your mum doesn't know how to look after kids.
I'm just saying, my mum was the same.
I ran away once,
back to the Dumping Ground.
She didn't notice I was missing either.
Dexter wasn't missing.
This is just why I didn't tell you,
because you'd go stirring it to Mike.
I won't. I'm just saying I understand.
You don't understand a thing.
-There's nothing wrong with my mum.
Hey! Do you fancy coming shopping?
Yeah. I will.
I think I'd better get back.
Mike said we weren't allowed to cross the tape
and now the tape's over there with Mischief.
Finn, Harry, come on, we're going on the trampoline.
Definitely no bouncing.
MUSIC: Jump Around by House of Pain
# Jump around
# Jump around
# Jump around
# Jump up, jump up and get down
# Jump, jump, jump Everybody jump... #
Ow! Ow! Ow!
-Are you all right, Finn?
-Does he have to go to the hospital?
He can't, or Mike'll know that we crossed the danger tape.
-Can I get some chocolate?
And some sweets?
-Just the one thing.
-You OK, Sasha?
Just looking for the ice cream.
Why did you do that?
It was an accident.
I am so sorry. We will help pick everything up.
She pushed it, I saw her.
What do you think you're doing? Do you want to get arrested?
Have social workers on your case? They'll take you away from Mum.
-Split up you and Murphy.
-I couldn't find any money.
Sasha! Come on, let's pay for this lot and go home, yeah?
I'll get the stupid nappies.
Thanks, Dexter. Thanks very much.
Oi, Bailey, lend me a tenner.
Oh, you haven't got a spare tenner, have you?
Is that to go towards all the food you wasted or the minibus?
What are you guys up to?
Nothing? Well, then, what's that behind your back, huh?
It's better to come clean now
because you know I'm going to find out eventually.
It's just a first-aid kit.
Just a first-aid kit.
Yeah, he's got a teeny tiny, eency wincy little graze on his leg.
-Where is he?
-In his bedroom.
Give me that.
What's it to you?
I'm trying to be your mate.
You're only looking out for me so you can get your room back.
I heard you and Mike.
That's not the reason why, though.
Just get lost. I don't need anyone's help.
-Give me the bag and I'll say that I nicked it.
-Because if you get caught, you're going straight to secure.
Show me that.
I had a tetanus injection.
you do not get this badly injured
and not tell me and May-Li, please.
You've really let me down.
We just thought it would be a good idea to cheer everyone up
-after the minibus got broken.
And we thought the trampoline would be a nice surprise.
And, if it hadn't been a death trap, it would've been.
I would go out tomorrow to a shop and buy you one,
but we just don't have the money to spare.
Did you lock Sasha in her room?
I did tell her to take some time out, though.
-We've got a spare key, right?
-Why? She locked herself in?
Well, either that or she's gone walkabout again.
It's on the desk.
Yeah what? No, Dexter, I haven't got them yet.
And Jody's gone too. Just saying.
Her photo says she's in. What's the point of my system?
There isn't one. It's obviously not working.
Don't take it out on me just cos you made the wrong call about Sasha.
We don't know that for sure.
-Kazima says she trashed the shop display on purpose.
No provocation at all.
So she's failed the trial then?
We have to accept this might not be the best place for her.
Not more trampolines!
They're brand new ones.
The sports megastore are running a contest.
You win by showing you're the worthiest cause.
We are. We're a kids home.
There are loads of kids homes.
You have to have something to make you stand out.
I know. We pretend Billie's an amazing trampoliner.
Yeah. Because you were training for the Olympics...
but her parents died in a terrible shark attack and she couldn't
carry on with the training because she was dumped in a kids home.
-It's brilliant, Mo.
The Olympics though?
That means Billie's going to have to be seriously good.
It's just for the application.
She won't have to actually prove it, Dumbo.
Mum? Mum, wake up.
Where are you?
-She's gone AWOL, I'm afraid.
-Yeah, I know.
-Hello, Ashdene Ridge?
No, this is Ms Wang.
Is it the police?
Health and safety.
You've got a cancellation today?
-It's really not convenient at the moment.
-Again, I know.
But she's been making real progress since then - you know what I mean.
-Would you like to come on a normal day?
Finally. I just got him to sleep.
I thought you'd show up,
that social worker just called to say you'd done another bunk.
-I won't tell her, don't worry.
-Is it really horrible?
Do you hate it?
No, but that's not why I'm here. Where have you been?
Just nipped to the shop to get these.
But you left Murphy on his own.
Don't start stressing, babes, you know
he's fine in front of the telly.
He's been in a dirty nappy all day.
-I caught Dexter shoplifting to get some.
Daft little monkey. I had the cash.
You were asleep, he didn't know were to find it.
It's not like we haven't had to nick stuff before.
Yeah, all right. I don't miss your flipping nagging.
Do you know were he is? Have you got a clue?
I'm trying to keep on top of things, OK?
It's not easy now you've deserted us.
I got taken into care.
Stupid social workers,
they don't think how I'm supposed to manage without my main girl.
You only used me as a baby-sitter.
When I wasn't minding the kids you were never bothered where I was.
-That's not true.
-You need to look after them, Mum.
Dexter's too young to be on his own. Anything could happen.
I'm here, aren't I?
I've taken the night off work so we can have a pizza party...
Only I'm skint after them nappies.
I haven't got any money. I can't bail you out any more,
I've got my own problems.
Hi? Is that Rusty Roger's scrap-yard?
Hello, it's Michael Milligan here. Yeah, yeah, I know.
I know I keep calling...
Is my sister here, please?
Who is your sister?
Be good for Mum. I'm going now.
Work just phoned, they can't manage five minutes without me...
-Well, you can stop here with Murphy-bobs till Dexter comes back.
Mum, I can't. I'm not even supposed to be here.
You're just visiting your family, babes, it's not a crime.
It is and if I keep breaking the rules then I'll fail my week's trial.
-So I don't have to go to the secure home.
Please, mum, you've got to stay.
A couple of hours, tops.
I'll try and get one of my mates to come round.
-So where is she?
-Well, she's not here.
I'll call her social worker and get someone to come pick you up,
-is that OK?
-Can't I wait for her?
She could be ages.
And your mum, she's going to be worrying about where you are.
You've got Jody Jackson?
-What? Is she OK?
She didn't want us to know. Only just gave them her contact number.
Is she OK?
What's the things she's taken?
-What? Why would she take nappies?
I should have seen that coming.
Well, I'll keep an eye out on the way.
I just hope I can persuade the manager not to press charges.
Right, see you in a bit.
CAR HORN HONKS
Hello, Sasha, it's Mike.
We have just had your brother round looking for you.
He didn't stay long, I'm sorry.
Listen, we're all a bit worried about you, come home, will you?
We have just had your brother round looking for you.
He didn't stay long, I'm sorry.
Listen, we're all a bit worried about you, come home, will you?
Right, c'mon Murphy, let's go find Dexter, yeah?
This is so unlike you. What were you doing?
Jody, who were you stealing the nappies for?
Yeah, yeah, thanks. Bye.
That was the contest people.
They saw our application come in and they love it!
It was mainly my idea.
Have we won the trampoline?
They're sending an assessor round today and we're going to the
leisure centre and watch Billie do some of her Olympic moves.
What? No, you promised...
Don't worry, just do some bouncing around.
You want us to win, don't you?
Come on. Keep coming. Keep coming. That's good. Thanks, Rusty.
That's the death trap gone.
Oi, what you looking at?
Do you live with my sister?
-Who's your sister?
-You on trial too?
-I've been here for YEARS.
Longer than just about anyone.
You must have been really naughty then.
Look! It's the trampoline assessor.
Do it or you're a big fat baby and I'll never forgive you.
What do we do now?
Look, man, you can't come in unless you live here.
The fire alarm is wired to its own dedicated
circuit on a RCD as per the regs.
Thank you so much for coming.
This is Billie. Boy Billie.
He has had a fatal accident unfortunately,
so he can't do any bouncing.
He tripped over our massive hairy dog
and fell all the way down the stairs.
Kids, let me introduce the Health and Safety inspector.
-It's good to meet you all.
But when you say "fell", can you just explain what happened?
Hello! Is this the right place for Billie?
-I've come to assess her skills.
-I used to coach the England squad myself.
It was some years ago, mind, but I can still recognise talent
when I see it.
Well, Billie's not exactly here. She was eaten by sharks.
So what are you assessing Billie for?
I'm helping judge the trampoline competition.
I can't wait to see her bust her moves.
Do you want to see some dancing?
Dexter? What the.....
My car! This vandal is one of yours?
He's not a vandal! Whatever he did, he didn't mean it.
Yes, I did. I'm the baddest of them all.
So you HAVE to take me into care.
Sorry about the misunderstanding.
-Care kids can be a bit... imaginative.
Just remember you don't need expensive equipment,
it's how you use what you've got.
You don't need to tell me.
Thanks for coming.
I always knew the trampoline was a stupid idea.
I don't know but Mike really is a brilliant care worker.
He keeps us safe and healthy.
If we don't brush our teeth, he gets really mad.
Knock it on the head, kids.
I'm sure the inspector probably just wants to.
-inspect on her own.
-Not at all, it's very informative.
Just what I need for my report.
-This is the kitchen.
-Lead on, boys.
See, don't worry, it's going really well.
The only thing she's got a problem with so far is this.
What? The photo board? Why?
Well, apparently it's unreliable and open to abuse.
Yeah, tell me about it.
Jody, I'm really sorry.
Yeah, well, I've never been barred from a shop before.
And May-Li thinks I've gone mad for stealing nappies.
I'll tell her it was me, I'll tell her everything.
About your mum being useless?
I should have known they'd never cope without me.
I tried to stick to the rules but then Dexter gets into trouble
and that's not fair on him, it's much better if I go.
-Well, Mike's going to chuck me out anyway.
No, you can't give up now. This is about you, not your brothers.
-You wouldn't understand.
-Can you stop saying that?
Because I do, I hated leaving my brother.
I only get to see him at contact.
I make it worse, that's what I'm saying, they've got to forget me.
Sasha, Bailey's room is way cool.
There's way better toys than at home.
Look after him for me. I'm going to secure.
Mike? Mike? Sasha reckons she's going to go.
What home? She knows she can't do that.
No, no, we've been there already, because of Dexter.
That's why I had to nick the nappies,
now she doesn't even care if she's sent to secure.
Look, I'm sorry for being so horrible.
But it's OK, cos Mike's going to look after you now
and Murphy's never going to run out of nappies again.
Right, Dexter, why don't you go and see
if Bailey wants to play football, huh?
Your social worker's with your mum now.
They already know there's been problems.
-I've always been there to help.
I get that now, but it's not your job to look after the boys,
your mother's been asking too much of you.
Treating you like you're a grown-up when you're not.
She does love them, though. She doesn't mean to be bad.
And the social workers are going to help her to be better.
They are going to put in place a support package,
and if she co-operates, she will get her chance.
So they won't be going into care?
Not for now, no. Come on, get your bag.
I'm going to put you in with Tee. You two should get along.
But... I broke all your rules, I got Jody arrested.
Yeah, you sure did,
but only because you were trying to be a good big sister.
So does that mean I'm not on trial any more?
How about two months probation, you do well and you stay.
But we have to trust each other. We're your family now too.
Deal, come on.
Fish finger kebabs?
With banana and cheese balls, it's my specialty.
-Hey, who did this?
It's an improvement on you, Bailey.
Mike, the quote's just come through for the minibus headlights.
Sasha did a pretty god demolition job.
I'm really sorry, I'll pay for it out of my allowance, every penny.
That is if you pass probation.
Oi, think positive, why don't you(?!)
Or, we could use this.
-That's a lot.
It is loads.
Did he pay for the trampoline?
The trampoline, and loads of other scrap metal from around the house.
This is for Sasha. Pay the bus.
-Does that mean we did a good thing?
This isn't mine, this is for you lot.
But you are "us lot" now.
Yeah, just make us some more dinners, fish fingers
and cheese balls, it's genius, why didn't I think of that?
