All right, Mike. Well, can you just be careful with it, yeah?
-Careful, Mike! Look where you're going!
I am looking at where I'm going.
-Look, I'm looking at my feet.
-You can't drop it!
-Be slow. Slowly, slowly.
-Last corner...that's it.
What is that?!
That is Tee's artwork and my ticket to a fancy night out.
We're going to the opening night!
Is that a joke?
Whatever it is, it is most definitely not art,
-in my opinion.
Er, sorry, Picasso. What do you mean that's not art?
-Art - real art - is about something.
No, this is boring, safe. Real artists take risks, stand out.
Other people, they just follow the crowd.
Er, I don't follow the crowd!
Really? Whose idea was it to enter the competition?
Ah, no, no, no. That's not the point! Tee wanted to.
Tell her, tell her, Tee.
An artist's work will be empty, if the artist is empty,
if they have nothing to say.
I can't enter it. It's rubbish.
I'm going to have to start again.
Don't listen to her, right? I'm telling you, this is brilliant.
Look, I have a friend, an artist.
If you saw his work you'd see what I mean about this.
Remember the relaxing day I've got planned for us?
More nails? Sounds important.
-No, actually, it's...
-Give it back!
-It's spray tans and facials, actually.
Tell her we're not going.
Yes, I can make up my own mind.
Fine, take me to this artist. It can't do any harm.
-I think it is...
Give it back!
I need it! It's the most important day of my life!
No! You played it all day yesterday.
You drove everyone nuts.
Did it drive you two nuts?
I give up.
Oh, yes! A day of silence!
Oh, I did.
I was on the last chapter!
Now you'll never know what happens,
unless you give me my CD back.
No chance. I'm not giving in to your blackmail.
-I'm going to get you, Floss!
-I'm going to get her!
That's the first time I've ever seen her finish a book!
I don't think it's a happy ending!
-Give us it back!
-I'm going to get you, Floss!
I knew this was a waste of time.
I'm Carmen Howle. Pleased to meet you.
Yeah, nice one.
And, you are?
She ate my book, May Li, the last page!
-Let go of it!
Less rudeness please, huh?
You'll never guess what I just heard in the garden!
Oh, come on, you'll never guess. Do you give up?
-Yeah, sure, we give up.
-The needletail bird!
The white-throated needletail?
Mo, are you sure?
Yes, I heard it at the bottom of the garden.
It hasn't been seen in England for nearly 20 years!
You know what? If Mo is right, this could be an important discovery.
A rarely spotted bird in our garden...
Some of us have to rehearse.
Floss, I know your audition's on a really big stage,
but, you know, there's always the front garden.
Yeah, let's give the people of the street a free show -
I don't think so!
(I'll be as quiet as a mouse.)
Look, no, you can't make any noise.
Birds have bionic ears.
I mean, they can hear a worm move, can't they, Mike?
Mo's right. Look, I'm sorry.
It probably won't be there for long, maybe a few hours.
But I've only got...
Four hours until your audition.
-Floss, I know your dance is important
but a needletail - it's a bird spotter's dream.
Where would we be without birds?!
Sorry, Floss, but I'm with Mo and Mike on this one.
Save the needletail!
That settles it.
Right, no-one goes outside until we know what's out there.
Floss, you can practise inside for a while, hey?
-Mo, I'll go and get the binoculars.
This is going to be great!
This is going to be great.
-So, what's your art about?
Back off, Kazima. I'm here, aren't I?
Erm, I don't really have a message yet.
That's why I came -
to find out what I want my art to say.
Yeah, but graffiti's not really art, is it?
Well, this is street art. Graffiti's just letters and shapes.
Street art makes a statement to the world.
It's still painting on a wall.
Pity. I was going to invite you
to see the best "painting on a wall" I've ever done, but
if you're not into it then...
Huh! Just ignore her.
We'd love to come, wouldn't we, Kaz?
It's been slashed - painted over.
It's a sign of total disrespect.
You don't do that to a brother.
What does "brother" suggest we do now then?
Cos this "sister" is ready to go home.
You can paint again, can't you?
No. It was one of a kind.
Well, I'll help.
Just teach me what you said about fades and sharps and...
What did it sound like?
Prr, prr, prr.
You're in charge of taking clear photos.
The bird society needs that
to be able to make this an official sighting,
so you've got to be ready at all times.
The book says that we have to be very still and very quiet.
And very patient.
(Shh. I said quiet.)
Let's go over the plan.
We do whatever it takes to get Jody and Mo out of the garden.
We make Jody wish that she'd never been born.
This could get messy.
You've got three hours to get me that garden and make Jody pay.
Don't let me down, girls.
He's stealing, I know he is!
Er, jumping to conclusions much?
You wouldn't like it if people judged you by your appearance.
What? Let's go.
-Where's your receipt?
She's right, I haven't got one.
It's a waste of paper and trees.
I buy paint with donations I get for my art.
Carmen, your shoes,
are they any good for running in?
Er, no! We're not going anywhere!
This is illegal! We're not going!
It's a council scheme - it's totally legal.
I'm sorry, but your face!
Where's the bird seed?
Oh, there we are.
Why are they in there?
There's only two.
Hello. Everything OK?
We just feel a bit left out sometimes.
We have no-one to play with.
OK, well, erm...
Why don't you give these to Jody and Mo?
Help tempt the needletail out of the tree, yeah?
-Is that a nest? Quick, get a picture!
There could be eggs!
We could be a breeding ground for a rare bird!
Blurred, all of them!
Mike sent these.
Brilliant. I'm starving.
For the needletail.
I mean, we can scatter them all.
We think there might be eggs.
Must be thirsty work, building a nest.
Argh! What are you doing?
Switch it off! Switch it off!
Switch it off! Argh!
It didn't get the needletail, so that's OK.
No, Mo, this is not OK!
Me and you are getting changed. You two, keep watch.
You're carrying on?
Yeah. Can't miss the first sighting of the needletail!
TEXT MESSAGE CHIME
It's from Floss.
It didn't work.
We've got to make them think the bird's gone.
They think there are eggs, right?
Can we do our tags now?
No. You see these drips?
I can't put my tag on that.
Can't you fix it?
Some days it just doesn't flow.
-Let's just call it a day, yeah?
Look, you can't quit.
Unless you want Lady Jay to think she's won?
And you promised you'd help me.
You sure you want to be more risky?
-There's a wall that's never been done before.
-Brilliant. I'm in.
It's not exactly...legal.
-I'm going with Roscoe.
-No, you're not.
-Carmen, it's my decision.
-Not when you're being stupid!
Not when it's illegal.
MUSIC: Human The Killers
Oh, no! The needletail eggs!
It says in your book that birds
sometimes push their eggs out of the nest.
And then the bird may leave.
The eggs are proof the needletail's here!
No self-respecting ornithologist would give up now.
We'll wait and see.
I felt like I could do anything. Does that sound weird?
When I paint, it's like all the bad stuff in life just fades away.
You know, how did you end up on the streets?
I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said anything.
No, you should.
It's not easy though.
Yeah, I know.
This must be why I paint. I'm not very good at "talking."
Change of subject?
Donations, will we get them?
Yeah, to pay for the paint.
Yeah, that wasn't exactly true.
Wait, you stole the paint?
The guy on the till's a mate - he turns a blind eye.
-It's not nothing, Roscoe. Stealing's wrong.
-Forget about it, yeah?
You have a go at people for not seeing you on the streets,
but you don't want them to see you stealing - is that it?!
So, stealing's wrong but painting on an illegal wall isn't, is that it?
No, it's not.
-Where are you going?
-Why on earth would I want to stay here?
There's a reason I am how I am.
Is this your dad?
He left for a whole new family we didn't even know about...
and my mum couldn't cope.
Why didn't you go into care?
It didn't really happen like that.
I met a few street artists, started staying out nights.
My mum was so gone, I don't think she noticed...
..and then one day I just didn't go home.
So what about your dad?
He wanted to see me at first, but after what he did to Mum...
I couldn't do that to her.
I don't know anything about my dad, not really.
I know everything about mine. I tracked him down.
I've seen where he works, his new wife, his new kid -
it's all picture perfect.
Why haven't you spoken to him?
-He wouldn't want to know me now. Look at me.
-You don't know that.
You should speak to him.
I told you, I'm not very good at talking.
Forget about it, yeah?
Well, you coming?
I'm sure we're going to get a sighting.
It has to come out sometime.
The book says it can go to feed any time of day,
so it pays to be patient.
-There, it's getting away.
He's an idiot! Bailey!
Come on, Mischief. Move it.
Sorry, Mo. I'll help you pack up.
No, look, it could come back. We'll wait.
I'm a pretty good waiter.
I'm known for it really.
That's where my dad works.
We'll leave him a message, your way.
What's it going to be?
I don't see a way out, do you?
You're just a kid.
I've got a daughter your age.
You know, I sometimes get cramp...
..and then I can't run.
You must have known he's spineless!
'You know what? I WOULD rather follow the crowd.
'At least I'm a part of a one!'
Anything could have happened!
'I could have been arrested.'
Trust me, I'll put this right.
Oi! Hey, don't call me a liar!
I didn't even let Mischief out.
-Well, get out of here cos you're going to scare off the bird.
No-one calls me a liar.
-Now say sorry.
I can't bare to look!
THE FRISBEE HITS SOMETHING
That's not a needletail.
That's a glider.
Wait. We've been out here all day for a glider?
Where's the rare bird?
Floss! Hurry up. Traffic's bad.
You don't want to be late.
We did it!
It's too late.
But no matter,
for I shall dance until the death.
OK, yeah, let's...do that.
THE KIDS ARGUE
Tell me what's going on.
Floss and I were flying planes yesterday,
-and she threw one...
-Oi, oi, oi!
Are you telling me that the bird that stopped
Floss getting into the garden all day is the glider?
-And she was the one that left it there?
This is brilliant. I can't wait to tell her this.
Nice one, Mo...
I knew you'd be OK - you're a first timer.
It's different for me. I had to get out of there.
You talk like you want to save the world,
but when things get difficult you're just out to save yourself.
It's just the way it works. I'm used to looking out for me, OK?
Like when you walked out on your mum?
Just like your dad did!
Maybe he doesn't bother with you cos you're not worth bothering about.
-Maybe you're the reason he left!
-Who are you?
and he's leaving.
Yeah, that's me, no-one.
Right, somebody fill me in here.
Who was that guy?
Look it's fine, OK? It's done. It's handled.
Why did I say that? That was such horrible thing to say.
Er, Tee, he deserved it after what he put you through!
Oh, shall we go and get those spray tans?
You look pretty pale.
Yes, I'd like that.
Where you going?
It's not right. Roscoe's got a Dad, and after what I said,
he's never going to try and talk to him again.
That's hardly your fault.
-No, I need to speak to him.
-No. His dad.
-You don't know the first thing about him.
-What if he doesn't want to talk?
-Well, he'll have to.
Oh, no, not without us...
Keep your eye out for security, yeah?
What you going to do?
SPRAY CAN RATTLES
Well, if you want to do it, just do it. Go on.
-But I need to tell you something.
Just shut up!
Because you wouldn't let me practice,
on this most important day of my life,
I've been cast as an...
You're not yolking, are you?
You don't even care about me. You don't care about that little bird!
Don't be stupid, Floss.
She's right. You didn't care about the needletail,
not like I did.
You didn't care about me or Floss either.
You just wanted to get your own way.
-That's not true.
-Yeah, it is.
-You weren't bothered that we didn't see the needletail.
You're no better than she is.
I've been making notes all day about things like...eggs.
And if there's no needletail, there's no needletail eggs!
Wasn't all us.
Look, Floss, you'll be a great egg.
You'll be, you'll be the best egg ever
and we'll all come and watch you.
I won't be the best egg ever
because Floss Guppy is not playing an egg!
-Well done, Jody.
-Yeah, well done.
Have you been giving out our phone number?
Because you can't do that!
That lad who was here,
is he Roscoe Hayden?
I have a duty of care to everybody in this house,
to keep them safe.
And did you really spray paint a car park wall?
I got caught up in it. I just... I wanted to help him.
Help? Is that what you're calling this?
I'm really sorry.
Ground me for months,
give me community service, I'll do it all, I swear.
Yes, you will, and more!
I'll do whatever you want.
But please put Roscoe in touch with his dad?
Arrange a safe meeting, a supervised visit or something?
I can do that, Tee.
But, Tee, even if you're doing this to help someone,
it is never OK to break the law.
There's always a better way.
-No more painting, I promise.
-Huh! Oh, no.
Cos you're going back there tomorrow
and you're going to put that car park right,
and I don't care how long it takes you.
Floss, I'm sorry. I got carried away...
but you did eat the last page of my book.
Go away! You're mean.
I am mean...sometimes,
so I know that it would be really mean to deny the world
the greatest egg dancer it'll ever see.
And there couldn't be a more important role.
Er...eggs, they represent the beginning of new life and...
I like eggs. You know scrambled eggs, poached eggs...
Chocolate Easter eggs?
I found your plane.
Where did you find it?
Nowhere really, just... Just in the garden.
I'm sure Jeff would like to see you dance the dance of an egg?
No, he wouldn't.
Sorry, Billie, I don't think Floss wants to see your costume designs.
Oh, bless her.
Go on, Floss!
Well, it looks better on Floss than it does on my wall.
Whoo! Go on, Floss!
Come on, Floss!
Oh, she looks amazing!
Ah, you were born to do this, Floss, go on.
It's dying swan time.
Marvellous, yeah! THEY CHEER
