Tyler, are you ready?
I can't be late.
Get on the course, become an engineer
and you'll get to stay in Britain.
-If I ever get there in time, that is. Tyler!
The last time I helped you, you went into people's rooms
-and you stole things.
-You got it all back.
-No thanks to you.
-I'm not here to steal anything.
George, he's in a bad way, he needs help.
What are you doing here? Kaz, call the police.
Come on, let's be having you.
The animal farm!
So happy to get off that bus.
Same. I thought we were, like,
travelling to the other side of the world.
20 minutes - it's hardly Scott of the Antarctic.
-How many sweets have you had on the way here?
-Lots and lots and lots!
Looks like you drew the short straw.
I could pull rank and swap groups.
-We're one missing.
How can we lose one en route? I counted them on the bus.
I've got my best trainers on and I don't want to trash them,
-so I'm staying on the bus.
-Oh, can I stay on the bus?
-We could have just gone laser questing.
-Or the skate park.
-Owing to new directives,
we have to ensure that all group activities are value for money.
They have to be educational as well as entertaining.
-Animals in cages aren't entertaining.
This is going to be the worst day ever.
I hope not.
# I wanna know what love is
# I want you to show me
# I wanna feel what love is... #
-Yes, we are.
You're a little ball of enthusiasm, aren't you?
-Yes, I am.
-Are you in my group?
-I can be.
-No, it's fine, but those that are, come with me.
I was going to call the police, but then he said George needed help.
-And you believed him?
You think it was a trick?
I think we did the right thing last time by throwing them out.
And the most essential thing we have to do after stroking the animals?
-Wash our hands?
Well done. Dexter, isn't it?
You can be my number one assistant.
You've either got it...
It's nice and warm in here, isn't it?
Not like back in my day.
Have you seen a doctor?
We couldn't get an appointment.
I just need warming up.
Something to eat,
Sorry, you'll have to find somewhere else.
We've got to be at college, I'm sorry.
-You're chucking us out?
-You're not our responsibility.
Yes, we are. This is your fault.
I don't see how.
They've put fences up round our place.
Got security guards in.
It's not your place.
It's as good as, and nobody knew we were there until you took them.
It was safe, warm, good, and now it's gone.
This is your fault, Kaz - all your fault.
You owe us big time.
Come on, keep up.
I can't leave one of you all on your own
out here in the middle of nowhere.
Mike says all the animals are rescued here, is that right?
You do realise we're just tramping about a farm all day long?
You don't need to look red-carpet ready.
I've never really met an animal before.
You've never met an animal before?
I want to look on point for my photos
and if we're going on the tractor ride, I want to look my best.
I've put them in the attic.
They're out of the way for now, I suppose.
It's not the greatest idea you've ever heard.
I had to do something.
They were doing fine until I got involved
and messed things up for them.
-Here. Let me do that.
-No, no, no, I'm fine.
You need to get to college.
You can still make it if you go now.
Go on. I'll be fine here.
Don't miss out because of Alex.
Ungrateful, selfish little toad.
I'm sorry I dropped all this on you.
I didn't have anybody else to turn to.
I don't know what I would've done without you.
It's bumpy! How's my mascara looking?
-Nothing, it's perfect.
-You might want to take a look.
-I love horses.
-Not as much as me.
And horses love...clean stables.
Right, our first task is mucking out.
-And that applies to you, too.
-I don't mind helping.
-"I don't mind helping."
You can help me supervise.
-Got anything else?
Erm, I could go and have a look to see if there's something
you can take with you.
Take with us?
Where do you want us to go to?
We don't have anywhere else to go.
There must be somewhere.
I suppose I could go to social services and, er...
if I'm lucky, get a place in a hostel.
And I'll get shipped off to another foster home.
-Probably in the middle of nowhere.
We made a pact to stay together.
To look out for each other...
through thick and thin.
-It's all gone.
-I suppose it'll do for now.
-You looked better before.
it's feeding time at 12 o'clock, so who's up for this? Come on.
Wait, I've already had a make-up malfunction,
now you want me to get in THERE with my best trainers on?
-Can I cuddle him?
Yeah, yeah, I'm sure it'll be fine, just be gentle. W-Wait.
Be gentle, yeah?
-If they're here when Mike and Sam get back...
-That can't happen.
But it will unless we do something. We have to call the police.
But they've done nothing wrong.
They're refusing to leave.
Just give me a bit of time and I'll work something out.
And what about college?
I'll call them, say I got stuck somewhere.
-You won't be lying.
-They can't stay up there for ever, can they?
Can they? Maybe if we give them enough time
they'll realise that they can't stay.
Well, let's hope that happens soon,
-before everyone else gets back from the...
Oh, I have had warmer welcomes.
May-Li. Tyler, look, it's May-Li.
Yeah, I know.
Let me give you a hand with that.
Thanks. I knew there was a reason I like you.
Don't get him to do anything around the house.
Might have to take you back with us.
Is that a promise?
Enough chatting - plenty more work to be getting on with.
You all right there, bro?
And you guys didn't fancy the farm trip, then?
Well, I had an appointment at the college open day.
I want to be an engineer.
-Yes, girls can be engineers, too.
Oh, I know, I'm just surprised YOU want to be an engineer.
No, I thought you'd go into, like, the caring profession.
Engineering is a skill in short supply in this country.
OK, so you become an engineer, then?
And then I might be able to stay here.
That way I can look after my father and my brother.
So, I guess you'd better be going, then?
-Yeah, it'll be ages before everyone gets back,
so you might as well get going.
What, and miss the opportunity to catch up with you guys? No way.
No, I've got ages yet.
If this is where he runs around, where does he sleep?
He makes a little bed for himself down there on the hay.
Nice and cosy. Happy as Larry.
LAMB BLEATING Baa!
He is happy, isn't he?
I doubt it.
It's not a life, is it?
Locked up in here with everyone gawping at you all day.
It's not right.
No, it's not right.
Our Aberdeen Angus bull.
Now, don't get too close, he's not the friendliest of animals.
Especially when he sees red.
-Have you worked here long?
-A couple of years, yeah.
Would you like this?
It's my emergency chocolate.
Maybe you should keep it for that, then?
No, it's all right, you can have it.
Everything all right, Dex?
Everything all right with you, Sam?
Maybe we should go and get some lunch.
Yeah, my holiday was lovely but, you know, kept thinking about you lot.
Wondering what you were all up to.
Have I been missed?
Has the place fallen to pieces without me?
No. Sam's been really great, actually.
He's been on top of everything.
Crows, nesting in the chimney.
yes, aren't they brilliant?
Crows, nesting in the chimneys.
Ah! I just remembered,
I need to e-mail those things over to the college.
I'll...I'll be right back.
There's no more medicine left.
-You need to leave.
-We can't go anywhere at the minute.
-Look at him.
-But one of the carers is back
and she won't take any nonsense.
I'll be all right once I've had some of that cough mixture.
Get us a bottle will you, kid?
Got any cash?
He'll be fine once he's had some medicine.
-He always is.
-OK, and then you'll leave, yes?
I just feel tired, like...
tireder than I've ever felt before, you know?
Maybe the worst is over.
What's your favourite food?
-Erm, I like pizza.
No, it's not.
There's this wicked pizza place near me.
Checked tablecloths, little candles in bottles. It's really smart.
-I make my own pizza.
-You put the stuff on.
Well, that's still very sweet.
They're all meat. Where's the veggie ones?
Oh, sorry, I left them over there, just give me a minute.
Who hasn't eaten their sandwich?
-You should see a doctor.
No, I'm serious.
I've already seen a doctor.
She wanted to admit me to hospital to have treatment...
antibiotics and all that.
Then why didn't you?
If I'd have gone in, what would have happened to Alex?
I can't leave him on his own.
He wouldn't survive without me looking out for him.
And him looking out for you.
He's the grandson I never had.
We made a pact to stay together.
And that pact is stopping you from getting better and stopping Alex
from getting the care that he deserves, the real care.
I was brought up in a care home.
Not like this place.
It was fancy and all that on the surface...
but looks are deceiving.
No, it's not like that here.
-Everything all right?
-What's going on?
You said you were sending an e-mail.
In the attic?
There aren't any birds in the chimney, are there?
Tell me what is going on.
-Of course you can.
-I want to, but I can't.
You can tell me anything.
-Are you in trouble?
-No, no, no, no.
I've always been able to trust you, Kaz.
As long as you're not putting yourself or anyone else in danger,
I'll trust you now.
I sailed too close to the sun.
You know what I mean.
I crashed and burned the other side.
I'm never doing it again.
All the animals have got out, even the bull.
We've got to go into lockdown.
-Can you keep everyone here?
We've got one child and several animals on the loose.
-I'll give you a hand.
-No, you stay here with the other kids.
-Ooh, other kids!
-That's got to burn.
Paris. Come on, Paris. Come on.
-Paris, come on.
-Dexter, get back!
-Dexter, get back, please!
Paris. Paris. Paris, over here.
Yes, good boy, Paris. Good lad, come on. Paris, good lad.
-Come on, Paris.
-Dexter, it's too dangerous!
Come on, guys. Yeah, you want to go home.
Good boy, Paris.
I think this may have something to do with Candi-Rose.
Where is he?
What have you done with George?
-Who are you?
His stuff's gone! Where is he?
-I-I don't know.
-He's gone. He's gone.
We should have looked here first.
You can't take him.
But this is where he lives.
He needs to be free to roam.
He wouldn't survive a day out of here.
Did you not hear my introduction this morning?
-All of our animals are rescued or bred here.
-This is all they know.
-They're safe here, right?
If they roamed free, they'd be killed by predators and cars.
Anything and everything.
They need looking after.
You can't just stop caring for them and let them fend for themselves.
I thought I was doing what's best.
Like all of us.
You look after yourself, eh?
He doesn't need to. I'll look after him.
George! George! George, where are you going?
-OK, wait a mo, I'll go and get my stuff.
You're not coming with me!
-Do you not get it?
Are you thick as well?
I'm trying to get away from you.
I've had enough of you following me around!
-But what about the pact?
The pact was to suit me, and now it doesn't.
You're holding me back.
Now clear off out of it!
That was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.
You...did it for Alex?
He stands a better chance of life without carting me around.
I'll look after him.
Don't ever tell him the reason I ever did this, yeah?
I can't have him come looking for me.
He needs to build his own life.
And you'll promise that you'll go to a doctor?
Yes, Nurse. Yes.
You're a good kid, you know?
See you around, Nursey.
I am so tired.
Your heart is in the right place, I get that,
and that's why I started working here, to care for animals.
Maybe if it's all right with Mike and Sam
you can come again and help out?
-That's fine with me.
-I'd love that.
Right, well, I guess this is goodbye.
I don't suppose I could have your number?
-You suppose right.
I only like real men, you see.
-Fearless ones like you.
I guess we'll always have Paris.
Take care, kid.
We'll always have Paris!
Cheese, man, total cheese!
Oh, stop with the...
It was awesome.
You're the boy who stole things.
-Why is he here?
-He shouldn't be here.
-Wait a minute.
-Take him to Bailey's old room, will you?
Shouldn't that be the Old Bailey?
That was good, man. Quick and good.
-You've got to give him a chance.
No, we don't.
-We give him nothing.
-He's not staying here, right?
Tell me he's not staying!
Children services said he can stay until they get a chance to review
his file with a social worker.
But he shouldn't be here.
Wait, wait, hold on. You all came here for the first time once.
You've all caused trouble,
each and every one of you, and you're all still here, right?
Someone has given you a chance.
Now do what is right and give him a chance.
-I could do with another one now.
I reckon George did it because it's the best thing for you.
Whatever. You're here now, warm and with a bed.
And George, what about George?
I don't know, but I like to think that wherever he is,
he'll be getting the proper care that he needs.
He'll be looked after.
Just like you.
You're safe here, Alex, you're not out there.
Get settled in and maybe in a couple of days,
we can go and look for him, yeah?
Give me a shout if you need anything, OK?
Is she OK?
Too many jelly babies.
Doesn't it send out the message that anyone can bring whoever they like
back here and they can just move in?
-Yeah, thanks for your input.
Alex is trouble. I'm telling you.
Takes one to know one, I guess.
Right, tea-time, everyone!
It's Sam's last meal with us.
He's going to his new placement tomorrow.
Might be back someday, who knows?
Right, from now on I'm officially a vegetarian.
You really like nuggets.
And we should have at least one day a week
with no meat in Ashdene Ridge.
-Who's with me?
Show of hands.
You'll vote for meat-free Monday, right?
Kaz, I had a call from college about the missed meeting.
They're not very happy.
I was dealing with Alex.
-See, he's already causing problems!
-We can get you another meeting.
No, don't. I'm not so sure I want to be an engineer.
-There are lots of jobs in short supply, right?
Carers, nurses, something.
-We can have a look.
-I want to do something that will help people,
people like Alex. He just needs to be given a chance.
He's all right. He's a good boy.
He's got goodness in his heart, I know it.
Kazima's plans to attend a college interview are forgotten when Alex returns to Ashdene Ridge. With George's condition deteriorating, he needs Kazima's help. Kazima, wary at first, acts fast, with the help of Tyler, hiding Alex and George in the attic while she works out what to do. Meanwhile, Candi-Rose isn't prepared for a visit to Jollity Farm, preferring to sit on the minibus than look at animals and run the risk of getting her trainers muddy. The others are far more enthused by the day out, particularly Dexter and Sam, who are both hit by Cupid's arrow when they meet Anjli, their guide for the day.
