-Here you go, Mike.
-Thank you, Mo.
-Bailey, don't forget to tidy the quiet room.
Oh, it's his review meeting.
You've got my sympathy, mate.
Yeah, it's going to be sweet. My reviewing officer is a legend.
Have you read my report yet?
Nah, it's long.
I really think you should.
Cos looking at your log over the past three months, I'm not
convinced you've met your targets.
-Yeah, but I've been walking Mischief, so...
But what about the other things we agreed,
like taking responsibility for your behaviour?
Just say you'll do it better next time.
There's no next time. My Wembley match tickets are for today.
Yep, from my reviewing officer. It's about a prize for being good.
And why does he get treats?
Well, it's an incentive for making significant progress.
And he hasn't got them yet.
My review last week.
"Jody continues to be a highly valued member of the community."
So if anyone deserves those tickets it's me.
That's a matter for you and your reviewing officer.
Yeah, and see those tickets, they have got my name on it,
so back off and get your own, yeah?
"Failed to complete chores within agreed time frame."
It's cos I had football.
"Continues to put own needs ahead of other young people's."
Oh, that's rubbish!
"Can sometimes get angry when challenged."
It's May-Lee! She's got it in for me.
Yeah, but there's still loads to go.
She wants chores, I'll give her chores. And she calls me selfish?
Today is your lucky day, cos I'm going to clean your room.
That's not rubbish, that's treasure.
Will you stop complaining, I'm doing you a favour.
Yeah, and I wish you wouldn't.
Wait, you can't do all your targets in one day.
Yes, I can. It's like the last few months squashed together.
No, it really isn't.
Jody, your reviewing officer, returning your call.
Let's see who gets to go to Wembley now.
Billie's new friend.
Billie wouldn't have any friends without me.
Billie? Why are you with a random weird girl in our garden?
That's my sister, you'd better go.
-Did she just give you money?
-Yes, she did. Show us.
-Show us or I'm telling Mike.
She gave me a pound to show her around.
She's never been inside a children's home before.
Why didn't you tell us that, dumbo? Give us half, then.
-No. You think you can boss me around but you can't.
I'm sick of it.
Forget the 50p, then. We can earn way more than that.
I can't believe it. I've never thought of it before.
-Thought of what?
-Doing tours around the Dumping Ground.
This is my most brilliant business plan ever.
Billie is going to be well jel with this.
Our tour is going to be way better than her random one.
Each bedroom door has to have a sign on it.
But it's not fair.
I've been in care for ages and the most you've given me
is a social services pencil.
So your reviewing officer's not giving you the tickets?
He says I don't need rewards - I'm motivated enough.
Why does Bailey get it then?
What are you doing? Get out!
I'm cleaning and I've just done Mo's room.
It's never been so clean.
We'll soon fix that.
-Bailey, touch my stuff and you're history.
-We need a gift shop.
-Yeah, that can be in the utility.
-It's going to be wicked.
-What are you doing?
-It's private. Go away.
Bailey, get out of my room.
"Tour Start... Tour Finish."
Hey, that was MY idea!
'Cept you only charged a pound.
Me and Floss are going to make way more than that.
Yep, we are, high-five.
You spiteful witch. I can't believe you just did that.
You're pathetic, sucking up to Mike like that.
Yeah, cos you're so perfect.
What are you doing?
-What is the problem now?
-Don't you dare!
Bailey, no. Put that down, Bailey, no.
You messed up my clothes.
Oh, you're an idiot! That lot that took me ages!
I thought you were on best behaviour!
She messed up Mo's room after I cleaned it!
Yeah, but it looks better now.
Thanks for grabbing me from the station.
-Didn't you get my message?
Oh, yeah, um... Faith's staying for a couple of days.
I forgot to tell you, sorry.
Good thing too by the looks of it. What's kicking off now?
Bailey's got Wembley tickets and Jody's a bit jealous about it.
I'm not, it's just totally unfair.
-You come with me, Faith?
She can get her own tickets! She gets loads of money at uni.
-You get special treatment as a care kid, everyone knows that.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. No one get's free anything, OK?
The tickets aren't Bailey's until the review meeting
and his chances are getting very slim.
Then I'll be his representative - a character witness.
Yeah, we're going to Wembley, sure as.
This ain't going to get you them tickets.
You haven't even tried at all.
I have, man. It's the dumb targets that are wrong.
You must have agreed to them.
Yeah, I can't really remember. It was ages ago.
I thought you were meant to be helping me.
I assumed you were helping yourself.
It's your meeting. You're going to have to own it.
-You sound like my social worker.
-Cos you need to take it seriously.
It's not for May-Li or your reviewing officer's benefit.
It's so you can get the most out of being in care.
Yeah, like I ever get a choice here.
You did with the tickets. You made a deal and you broke it.
Cos May-Li's always picking on me.
There you go again, blaming others, like you always do.
Why should you get something for nothing?
Stop acting like a spoilt brat and be honest with yourself.
Bailey really respects Faith, that's all I'm saying.
It might help him to have her on side.
We don't have other young people in reviews, it's not appropriate.
-And I am on his side.
-He doesn't think so.
I'm trying to treat him the same as everyone else.
You make too many allowances, Mike.
-He kept his promise about the dog. I was right about that.
He walks him. He feeds him. He takes him to the vet.
Didn't mention that in your report, did you?
Fine. I will write a paragraph about Bailey the Dog Whisperer.
You're trivialising it now.
OK, Mischief can come to the meeting - with Faith.
Will that make you happy?
OK, OK, I'll write some stuff about Mischief
-if you think it'll help.
-I can smell coffee.
Mike, have you ever considered getting Ashdene Ridge T-shirts?
-"My parents dumped me in care and all I got was this T-shirt"?
Somehow I don't think that is going to catch on.
We weren't asking you two.
You could wear one at uni.
I've...got to get this, sorry.
You all right, shrimp? Not hanging out with your sister?
They're leaving me out.
-I don't want to do their dumb tours anyway.
Yeah, of the Dumping Ground. I'm probably not supposed to tell you.
That's insane. But spectacular.
It was my idea. They stole it.
Then let's steal it back. You looking for a partner?
My 'rents were totally over-excited to see me.
Special dinner, the works. My mum makes an awesome curry.
Half an hour away? You're kidding me. How did we not know?
Yeah, you can come and meet my family. That'd be...cool.
Sal, I'll have to call you back.
Your mum makes an awesome curry?
I haven't told my uni friends I'm from a kids' home.
-None of them?
-It's stupid, I know.
Talk about being honest and grown-up - you're a joke.
-You don't know what it's like.
-You're ashamed of us, is that it?
It's nobody's business.
Everybody pointing and saying, "That's the girl in care."
-So you are ashamed of us. I
-just want to fit in. That's not a crime.
So you want to show people around our room?
For ordinary people to see how a real children's home works.
-And what does Mike think?
-He doesn't know yet. It's a surprise.
And he's not going to notice total strangers tramping around our house?
Let us worry about the details.
-You'll get 5% for your trouble.
-You will get 2%.
Is there anything you won't do for money?
It's not just my room. I'll check with Sasha.
Are you going to sign or not?
It's not just my room. I have to check with Tee.
What are you doing? That's our idea.
-You big fat copycats.
Wait, there's two tours? I'm confused.
Floss, you're an amateur.
I was doing this stuff before you were even born.
Hey, get out, Harry. I need to chat to Faith.
I can fix things with your mate.
Go out to town. Say I'm your little brother. Get something to eat maybe.
I already said she can come to the house.
What a fail.
There's a change of plan. Our little sister's ill.
You've got sisters, right?
Jody and Floss.
There you go. She won't suss anything.
Cheers, Bailey, I owe you one.
So help me like you said now.
I don't see how I can...
Just, you know, change my daily log. Tick a few boxes.
Change the evidence, really.
You want to lie to your reviewing officer?
Yeah, same as you've done to your mate.
I reckon that makes us even.
You don't even have to do anything. Just be my look-out.
We are open all hours.
Why couldn't you have gone somewhere else?
This is silly all us doing these tours. We should join together.
We'll help you hand out your leaflets.
Billie, don't trust her!
Right! Give those back!
You want to play dirty? Bring it on.
We need something high-concept, something...grabby.
I've got it.
"Come feast your eyes on Ye Olde Children's Home."
-I'll get it.
Hi, I'm Abi, Bailey's reviewing officer.
Yeah, we were expecting you.
I'm Faith, by the way. I'm usually at uni. Just back for a few days.
We're just making some coffee. May-Li will be with you in a sec.
Hi. I'm Jody.
My reviewing officer doesn't believe in rewards, but I do.
Not now, Jody.
I'm just saying.
If Bailey doesn't get the tickets, there are others who deserve them.
I'll bear that in mind.
Let's see what the meeting brings, shall we, Jody?
What are YOU looking at?
You, making an idiot of yourself.
-What're you doing?
-No children allowed.
-What's going on?
Bailey's in there.
Well, it wasn't like this.
-I didn't do anything.
-Faith was in on it as well.
It's Bailey's file. He was just checking the facts.
He was changing official records. Do you think that's OK?
-Is that what they teach you at uni now?
If you've lost respect for the rules, then we're going to have to
rethink your respite arrangements.
It's just me and Bailey now, in his review meeting.
Are you going to tell Abi?
OK, Bailey, I've had a good look at your report.
I know I fell behind on some chores, but I made up for it today.
It's not just about chores.
Our main concern was your behaviour towards others. Do you remember?
We talked about trying to see things from other people's point of view.
-Thinking how they might be feeling.
-Yeah, I've done that.
And you were going to work on being patient, not losing your temper.
Like you did with Jody.
Come on, man, she was asking for it, trying to nick my tickets.
She doesn't think you've worked for them.
-So I'm not going, is that what you're saying?
May-Li added a bit in the report about how you take care of the dog.
She says you walk him, whatever the weather.
And have kept up his training,
using your own money to buy toys and treats.
Yeah, course, that's what I promised.
That's really impressive, Bailey.
I thought he was a house dog. I didn't know you were doing all this.
The others don't get it.
If he doesn't get walked he goes hyper and that's not his fault.
But you really appreciate his needs.
You've shown commitment, responsibility,
that you can be trusted with something really important.
Now, I think that deserves a reward.
And seeing as the tickets are for today...
-You won't regret it, I swear.
Before you came he was in the office tampering with the daily log sheets.
I'm sorry, Bailey.
I thought I was going to fail.
I didn't know about the dog stuff she wrote.
I wanted to give you the best possible chance.
Can I still have the tickets, please?
-Not if you were lying to get them.
-But you said...
I'm really disappointed in you, Bailey.
I'm disappointed in YOU. You were never going to give me those tickets.
-You were just stringing me along.
-That's not true.
Just say it, I'm rubbish.
I failed all my targets. I'm a waste of space.
Well, guess what, I don't want to be here either.
-In a couple of years I'm gone.
-Stuff your meeting!
It's your fault for not being a proper lookout.
I got in loads of trouble because of you.
Whatever, the deal's off.
If you think I'm helping you with your uni mate now...
You're still completely selfish, you haven't changed at all.
At least I'm not a fake like you.
'All passengers wishing to travel with London Victoria,
'please make their way to Section A. Thank you.'
Guys, if you get cleared up quick
we can watch the pre-match build up on TV.
-Me and Tyler are busy, actually.
-More food for us, then.
I'm going to head back to uni.
No, no, no, wait, wait! Faith, come here, come here.
You made a mistake. We've all done it from time to time, but....
It's not cos of Bailey. I've got an essay to do.
Is everything all right? If there's a problem...
There isn't. I'm going to go pack.
And when I say "grasshoppers" you have to hide.
It's me again. Is Mike in? I think I left something.
I got back to the office and checked my handbag.
The football tickets have gone.
I'm not accusing anyone but the last place I had them was here.
-Any sign of him?
-No, he's gone.
Well, then it was obviously Bailey.
Did you know about this, Faith?
She's lying. I bet that's why she's leaving early.
It really isn't.
-It's just his voicemail.
So what are you going to do?
I'll call his social worker and go and look for him. Abi.
I told you you should just have given me
the tickets in the first place.
Why does nobody ever listen to ME?
This couldn't have gone any better.
May-Li's going to be glued to the football.
And Mike's chasing Bailey back from Wembley.
So once we get the first few in, they'll be queuing for miles.
Shall we practise our starving orphans again?
SHE COUGHS PITEOUSLY
What on earth are you doing?
Ye Olde Children's Home?
With historical re-enactment.
-So you think the DG's some kind of freak show?
We're like animals in a zoo, people should feel sorry for us.
We're only doing it cos Floss and Toni are.
But you should know better.
This may be a kids' home but we're still the same as everyone else.
OK, we're sorry.
I know you messed up but do you want to come to the match anyway?
I've got the tickets right now.
They're not yours. Abi knows you stole them.
It's not like it's her money.
You don't get it at all - Mike's looking for you.
I'm sorry for calling you a fake.
Are you coming to the match or not?
Hey, yo, Mo, I've got your ticket right now right here waiting.
Where are you? Everyone's really angry.
Well, bring loads a sweets, innit, and just forget about 'em.
Make sure you bring cash for the coach. We'll have a right laugh.
Bailey, look, they're not your tickets to give.
Can you not be so boring? Are you my friend or not?
Yeah, look, Bailey, just come home, please. Right, bye.
Where is he, Mo? Tell me, tell me.
Why haven't you gone?
-I just didn't feel like it.
-None of you would have come with me.
Get lost, Jody.
Don't pretend like you care. You do everything on your own.
I just kept remembering being with my dad.
Your dad that dumped you at the footie and ran off?
Yeah, he was a laugh(!)
Yeah, I admit he was useless.
And the only time we did stuff was
when he was trying to make it up to me.
But you know what, he's still my family.
But we can be your family now.
Nah, see, you've got your friends. I ain't got anyone.
Cos you act like a moody big-head who's better than the rest of us.
And that's what the tickets were for - my behaviour towards others.
Well, that worked!
Yeah. Just made everyone hate me more.
Then tell Abi to stick the rewards. You don't need 'em.
Come on, we can catch the kick-off at home.
We're not a zoo, Faith's right.
We need to draw the line somewhere.
It's OK, Tyler. I understand.
Social services had an emergency call from one of the neighbours.
-They were concerned about a pair of malnourished,
ragbag kids outside here half an hour ago.
-Do you know anything about it?
-FOOTBALL ON IN BACKGROUND
-Down here now.
-Forget the money, just go.
Excuse me! Who are you two? Hey, lads!
They just followed us in.
We don't have a clue who they are.
But it was Billie's fault.
No, it wasn't. We've closed down our tours.
Tours? Give me strength.
It was our idea. Billie stole it.
Only cos you left me out.
You left me out first. You said I was bossy.
Goal in the first minute! Wicked volley from outside the box.
Quick! They're replaying it, it's the goal of the season.
-Tell the neighbours it was a history project.
-May-Li wants her popcorn.
Can we stop fighting and make up?
-I'm on it.
No luck at the station. The last train had gone.
-Jody found him. She texted.
-What, did she?
The bus station. Why didn't I think of that?
They're on their way back, that's the main thing.
What about you? I thought you were going.
Oh, no, I can do my essay from here.
-I was getting stressed over nothing.
Is it all right if I have a friend from uni? She lives really close.
-Of course. We'd love to see your friends.
You have told her this is a complete madhouse?
Look, I don't want no bribes again.
but it ain't fair on the others.
If I'm going to be good...it should be cos I want to be.
I wish you'd decided that before I wasted 80 quid of council money.
Wow, 80 quid!
Look, I'll pay it all back.
I was thinking of a trade-off.
You know how impressed I am with what you've done with Mischief?
Nah, you ain't taking my dog!
I'll do anything. I'll even sell my football boots.
Whoa! Why would I want your dog?
No, I'm talking about your skill with them.
You want me to be a dog trainer? Why didn't you say that?
Actually, what I had in mind was more scrubbing out kennels,
-The council dog pound are desperate for volunteers.
I reckon 30 hours'd do it?
If Bailey passes his review meeting he gets tickets to Wembley. The problem is that Bailey hasn't been on form lately, and Jody is keen to get the tickets for herself.
