-Carmen, is that a belt or is that a skirt?!
You see, now you're starting to sound like Mike.
Look, if you want to be a Face Of The Future
-then you need to have the right look.
Look, with this you will totally style out the audition.
Mm, yeah. The world is my lobster.
Well, you're going to need to get the job first.
I will. I can feel it, it's going to lead to things.
Whatever. Come on it's film night.
Wait for us.
-You can't see.
Maybe you need your eyes tested?
Maybe you should get your nose tested for being too pokey.
I'll see you tomorrow. It's Carmen Howle.
-I've booked her in at the optician.
Oh, have you told her this?
She needs eye care. You are her carers.
I've done the hard work.
I'm not getting my head bitten off.
Someone's will have to break it to Carmen.
Break what to me?
That smells good!
-They are roasting hot!
No, no, no, no, no!
Tell me that's not today's!
Oh, my newspaper!
Oi, oi! Back of the queue, squirts.
'Scuse me, 'scuse me!
-No, Mo, can you take that up to Carmen, please?
Because you're the only I can trust not to nibble it on the way up.
Go my friend, go.
Join the club!
I'm not joining the specky dork club!
You haven't got dressed yet?
Come on then.
Tee, I'm not going.
Don't be silly! The world's your lobster, remember?
Yeah, well, not in these it isn't.
Carmen, I meant it in a good way!
You're going to storm it, I know it.
Don't be silly, you'll be fine.
-OK, how do I look?
I said, Carmen Howle!
Hey, they're pretty.
So, why the glum faces, eh?
We're feeder bottoms.
You're just as important as anybody else in the house.
And you've got something nobody else has.
Twins are very special, you know.
How did they do that?
They can read each other's minds.
Finished with that? Good.
You do realise that if we were telepathic,
we wouldn't be bottom feeders any more.
Have you got a plan?
Look into camera. Snap, snap!
Yes, it's going great. I've seen some wonderful candidates already.
Super keen and super smart. You're going to love them.
Yes! OK, I'll see you tomorrow.
Great! OK, come on! I haven't got all day.
Read what's on the prompter.
-Well, you can read?
Face For the Future is a government campaign to motivate young people?
That's so cool.
Hello, my name is...
Oh, no, no! Wait, wait! No, sorry. I see, I see.
Really, really sorry.
Er... Hello, my name is Carmen Howle and...
..I like you...
No, please. Come on, I can do better.
-Wait! She just needs these.
-I'm behind schedule as it is.
-Please! She can do this.
-There is no point.
It's obvious your friend hasn't got what it takes.
Hello, my name is Carmen Howle and I, like you,
am part of the next generation.
The future is in our hands.
I'm ready for that challenge, are you?
Are...are you just going to sit around on the sofa
and just expect things to happen for you?
Well, guess what, they won't.
You've got to get up and you've got to make the most of who you are
and what you want to be.
Maybe you do have something.
And this geek chic you've got going on is good.
It's going to sell the science.
OK, your recall is tomorrow, three o'clock,
and we'll want you to demonstrate these science experiments.
Yeah, thank you.
< Do you want to go to the park or the cinema?
< Good choice.
< What do you want to see?
Yeah, I've heard that's amazing in 3-D.
No, don't ask any of the others. We'll go by ourselves.
Who, er... Who are you talking to?
How can she hear you? And she's not speaking.
But we're talking.
Mo! The twins are telepathic.
What! Do you really think so?
Seven of clubs.
Jack of hearts.
(Come on that's the tenth one she's guessed.)
I didn't guess.
She read my mind.
-OK, here you go.
-Not that one, that's not even been cooked.
I'm not being rude it needs to be cooked more.
-What do you think?
Um, I think it should be captured for posterity.
Right are you ready? Look at me.
There we go, marvellous. Don't do that, it's hot.
-Incapable of making a burger?
Hey, hurry up, I'm getting hungry.
Oh, 'scuse. Move, pondlife.
Go on, girls. You go in front of me.
-Why are you letting them in?
-Because they've got powers.
-Go on, girls, show him the card trick.
Cards are boring. We can do better.
Here you go, young ladies, sausages for you.
-Tyler, what do you want?
There you go. Hello, you two, where've you been?
Well, I got a re-call for Face Of The Future!
-She totally smashed the audition.
-Whoa, back up. What audition?
Oh, it's for this modelling agency. But it's not just modelling,
it's like presenting videos on the internet, things like that.
-Did you know about this?
You should have asked. These auditions can be dodgy, you know.
Yeah, I know but this one isn't. It's all official.
You just need to sign the consent forms, that's it.
Um, you don't know anything about science.
Does it matter?
Well, it says in the rules that it does.
-Mike, you've got to fake it to make it.
-She's a natural.
Right, well, I need to know this is legitimate before you carry on.
-I'll call them tomorrow. No promises, all right?
I am Billie's eyes.
She'll read my mind and know when it's Bailey.
You should fire if it's Bailey.
# Could it be magic? #
-Being lucky doesn't prove anything.
We'll do it until you believe us.
Fire if it's Bailey.
# Could it be magic? #
OK, OK. I believe you.
-What do you think?
-Are we special?
Well, yeah, I guess.
Er, the vitamin C tablet, put on the lid and stand back.
It's going to blow up like a rocket.
This is a disaster. You must have done something wrong.
Maybe this whole science thing isn't really your bag?
Wait, you have called the agency, haven't you?
Yes. The producer said she was very impressed with you.
Even more so when I told her you were in care.
You did what?
It's nothing to be ashamed of.
Sylvie said that it was an interesting angle.
It might give you an edge.
-She really said that?
She wants to film the re-call here with a celebrity this afternoon.
-I was on a high score!
-I don't care. Get out.
Yeah, we live in here as well, you know.
Not today you don't. I'm going to be filming in here with a celebrity, OK?
-It doesn't matter. Goodbye!
These are all over the lobby. Can you please pick them up?
You pick 'em up.
You can go down there and do some hoovering, please.
-We're not your slaves.
Who does she think she is?
It's 2-1. She's going to score, Billie's going to score.
-Oh, you're so close.
-You're so good.
That was a good goal. That was a really good goal.
Well done, girls.
-Hey, what's up with Mischief?
-The flea bag stays in there, OK?
You read my mind.
We've got to face it. Billie knew I wanted a drink.
-Nah, they can't read our minds, come on.
What if they can? Guys, this is serious.
-Can you hurry it up please?
-Yes, all right, Carmen.
Well, I've only got a small window.
OK, so charge up the rod and pick up the tinsel!
Wow, how cool's that?
We need experiments with a wow factor.
This is the internet so it's going to be viewed worldwide.
LA, most definitely.
It's not fair. Beyonce has people to put on her eye-liner.
Carmen, it's a five-minute video.
Why don't you just stop chatting
and try and find me some more experiments, yeah?
Do you know what? Do it yourself.
If they can read minds then they'll know everything we're thinking.
-All our secrets.
-All our embarrassing secrets.
Well, then, there was this time when...
Oh, nice try, bruv.
What did we do?
Just to let you know - I've signed those consent forms.
Oh, OK. Thank you.
I thought you'd be pleased?
I want to do something special for this audition.
But Tee won't help me and I just can't seem to find
the right experiment.
What if I mess it up, Mike?
-Keep looking. You'll get there.
-HE CLICKS HIS TONGUE
-We can't hide in here forever.
-Got any better ideas?
-We thought you were them.
-Look, I made some thought protectors.
They keep everything in your mind
so the twins can't know what you're thinking.
That's the most stupid thing I've ever heard you say.
-Which is going some.
And you're as mad as him.
Look, I keep my embarrassing secrets the way they are - secret.
-They keep you safe but...
What's wrong with them?
-Can we help you...
-Build your models?
Find someone more interesting.
THEY LAUGH HALF-HEARTEDLY
Look, I'll tell Mike you're reading minds. Just go away.
-Is everything OK?
-Everyone's being weird to us.
We pretended to be mind benders cos
we didn't like being feeder bottoms and it's all gone wrong.
"Add two vitamin C tablets."
OK, erm, why it works.
The water and the oil don't mix together because...
-Er, what is it with the interruptions?
-Why'd you do this?
-Ryan saw you with it.
-I didn't I just...
-Carmen used your model for an experiment.
-I guess it went wrong.
-Why would you do that?
It was an accident.
I got it wet by accident and so I put it in the garden to dry.
You just take what you want. You're so selfish.
-Carmen, you haven't even said you're sorry.
-This has gone far enough.
-You've caused mayhem and upset everyone.
-No, I haven't!
You have been rude, selfish, disruptive
and shown a complete disregarded for everybody in the house.
DOORBELL RINGS FREQUENTLY
OK, OK, OK, keep your...
Lovely hair on. Hi. Hi.
You must be May-Li? I'm Sylvie and this...
-Oh, yeah, sorry. Come in, come in.
If this is the way that you're going to carry on, you can
-forget about the audition.
-You're going to cancel my audition?
-This is, er, this is Mike, our lead care worker.
-Er, hello, welcome.
-Hi, Mike, how do you do? Hi.
These are our young people. And, now, this is Carmen.
Ah, Dallas, this is the girl I was telling you about.
Hi, our budding young scientist? Great to meet you.
Hi. That's me. All about the science.
So, er, why don't you come on in and get set up?
OK great, come on then, chaps, let's go.
Mike, thank you.
We're not done.
So, er, once you've filled the, the...the canister with water,
then you...you then put in, um, then when you've done that,
you put in the vitamin C tablet and put the...the top on.
OK, spot the deliberate mistake.
See, obviously, that has to be that way round.
OK, er, moving swiftly on.
Carmen will now demonstrate the magic floating tinsel. OK?
-Obviously without the instructions, sorry.
OK. Er, you...
THEY STIFLE LAUGHTER
Um. That's a very, very good demonstration of gravity but
what we want to try and demonstrate here is the static charge, yeah?
So, you're going to need this.
Give it a good old charge, like this.
Rub it really hard against the jumper. OK, that should do.
See what happens.
How does it do that?
Well, it, um, like...
I tell you what, shall we just park this and move on to something else?
How about a volcano? Oh, wait, you already destroyed that.
Oh, that's enough, Jody.
No, we've had enough. Why are you letting her do this?
She doesn't even know anything about science.
Oh, do you know what? Whatever, I don't care.
Science is boring anyway.
Um. OK, well, look,
do you want me to do a little demonstration?
I'll show you how interesting science can be. Yeah?
-'Breathe deep, relax and repeat after me.
'I am special,
'I will succeed.'
That's easy for you to say.
'I will never give up.
'I will never give up.'
-You weren't there!
-She knew what card she was holding without looking.
And then they soaked me but nobody else.
We did signs for the card tricks.
Toni said "shoot" instead of "fire" when it was Bailey.
No, I don't believe you. You always finish each other's sentences.
You know each other's thoughts.
That's because they've had the same experience in life.
They feel the same way about the world.
Our last foster home was horrible.
They punished us if we talked at the table.
So we just kind of learned to talk without speaking.
So why all the tricks?
-Yeah, why freak us out like that?
-I wasn't scared.
-Everyone ignores us.
-No, we don't.
Actually, we probably do.
We're not bottom feeders.
We're not freaks.
-'My fear is not real. The universe supports me. I am loved.
'I am protected. I am cherished.'
Right, does anybody know what this is?
-Is it really, really cool?
-It is indeed something very cool, yes.
-Well it's quite sci-fi in a way.
I might need a volunteer for this.
I'm sorry. I'm really sorry I lied...
about knowing about science.
Is there any way that I could have a second chance?
Do you want a second chance?
OK. Put those on.
Put that on.
OK, what I want you to do is I want you to hold your
-palms out like this.
Put them on this big metal sphere, OK?
Now, guys, have a look at this, see if you can see what happens.
-Can you feel that?
-Yeah. I felt that.
Now, have a look at her hair. Can you see that?
Why does it stand up like that?
OK, so, if you can step back. OK.
Right, a rose.
Now, if I put this in here.
There you go, just to say thank you.
How did you do that?
Well, the liquid nitrogen is really, really cold
and it just freezes the flower and makes it brittle.
Could, could I have a go?
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
That's it just dunk it in.
That's it, stick it all in.
for being such a cow bag.
Right, with a little bit of washing up liquid here,
we put in a couple of inches of water, put a little bit
-of dry ice in here...
-HE SHOUTS EXCITEDLY
Now, look at that. Gather round, gather round.
Grab yourself a bubble.
MUSIC: Wake Me Up by Avicii
We'll put these little dry ice pallets in. There we go.
Perfect, perfect smoke rings.
Come on, yeah.
You've got it, you've got it.
-I love that smoke.
-And that's how science works, ladies and gentlemen.
Right, how are you guys getting on over here? Let's have a look.
Well done, Carmen. Now, as far as the audition goes...
Look, I'm sorry but I just... I think this thing's not really for me.
Well, that is good because I wasn't going to offer it to you anyway.
-'Jim's fond of a good explosion
'and that's exactly what you need to get an engine working.'
CHILDREN TALK QUIETLY
'If you're not convinced that icing sugar would burn...'
'All very impressive but sugar inside an engine?'
