Yeah, it was either that or goodbye.
We never do welcomes.
And neither do I. I am off to see my social worker.
-Why does she get a red carpet?
Is she a princess?
Whatever he is, he's ruined my day out.
Some me time, you said.
Oh, come on, that's not fair.
-We discussed this.
-It wasn't much of a discussion, though, was it?
It went something like this.
New girl coming, thin out the numbers, plans have got to change.
Isn't all of this a little bit too much?
It's not going to be Bondi.
I've never had a trip to the beach before.
-Right, this is your one minute warning.
Come on, the boys are waiting outside already.
Excuse me, please. Thank you, coming through...
Sasha, go get cleaned up.
Come on, the rest of you on the minibus. Let's go, let's go!
I'll bring you back some rock, yeah?
Yeah, have a good time.
We really appreciate this.
But why me? Have I done something wrong?
No, of course not.
No, we just thought that you'd be best at this.
-What's she like?
-You'll have to wait and see.
So, this is it. This is the garden.
I thought you wanted to see this first.
Hey, we've got lots of space here.
Everyone's really looking forward to meeting you.
-Shall we go inside?
I'm going nowhere.
MIKE: All right, all ashore!
Look at the sea.
-Is it always that colour, does it ever go pink?
-What do you mean, "What beach"?
No - WATT.
This is what we talked about.
Yep. Home to the legend of the lost gold.
The galleon Mariana. Wrecked.
a chest of Spanish doubloons,
buried by Privateer Ben Watt in 1588.
The only loons here...are all you.
It's just a story to bring saddos and metal detectors.
Don't mock, Ryan. It's an historical fact.
The treasure was real.
He made a map with clues - instructions to find the treasure.
But the map and money were never found.
-Where's the ice-cream van? Where's the candyfloss?
Well, this is more of a rustic seaside, you know,
back to nature sort of thing.
The only thing I can offer you is Candi...Rose.
-You are joking?
We can make this fun, come on!
Come on, Taz.
They're a great bunch.
You know, the sooner we get you settled in, the better.
Come on, give us a chance.
Give THEM a chance.
You know, they might surprise you.
Hi, Tasmin. Welcome to Ashdene Ridge.
So...I'll show her her room, help her unpack.
-I'll come with you.
-No, no, no. Let Jody handle it.
But she's going to be in my room.
You can always watch from ours.
Just don't get in the way, OK?
Keep your eye on the tide.
Stick with your team.
I will be watching.
Complete your tasks
to win the big mystery prize.
Tyler, Ryan, I want ten wildlife pictures, please.
Result! Are you messing?
Candi-Rose, Sasha, I want you guys to make a sand sculpture.
Can't I just do it on my own?
No, Sasha, and play nice.
There's safety in numbers. Stick with your team.
-Come on, Sash.
-It's not up to you.
-What about us?
You...will remove as much plastic from the beach as you can.
Picking up rubbish?
I prefer "environmental beachcombing".
Start over there by the cliffs - see the red buoy and the blue box?
You must really hate us.
I could pair you with Sasha...
No, you're good!
No, thank you...!
HE SIGHS CONTENTEDLY
Jody, stop her messing my room!
-This is cool.
-Not as cool as Jess.
It's a pirate.
-Let me see...
Open my door!
Shut up, Floss.
I'll just...leave you to unpack.
Guess I'll see you in a bit?
Oh. Everything OK?
She hardly said a word.
She'll come round. I mean, we've got to keep trying, it's all we can do.
But she's weird.
I should have just gone to the beach.
Nice one, Jody.
I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that.
We could go back to the house and get us some cake...
Do you like cake?
first days are always a bit difficult, so...
it's OK if you're scared.
I'm not scared.
I'm just saying. It's all right if you are.
You know what my favourite cake is?
I'm guessing it's mud pie.
We've been walking for miles.
Can you please tell me why you're so keen on this?
We need to get higher.
What are you doing?
Yes! I've got it.
Puffinus puffinus, AKA the Manx shearwater.
It's the magic of 4G.
One down, nine to go. Then all we've got to do is chill.
Should we be doing this?
Oh, come on. It's a laugh, it'll be fun.
Taz isn't the one who's going to get soaked,
it's the next person to use the tap.
Alex is out, and you and me know, so
that just leaves Chloe and she's got her own bathroom.
And the twins, but...we'll just let them in on it.
Yeah but...May-Li's not going to be happy.
May-Li said to make her welcome,
and that's what I'm doing, just...in my own DG way.
I love it.
Well, we'd better go and see what Taz is doing.
If she needs to wash her hands!
Isn't this magical?
Oh, I'm so glad Mike decided to pair me with you.
Me too. You're a much better artist than I am.
So, what are we going to make?
Stop trying to suck up to me.
I've never made one of those sand thingies before.
Not even a castle.
Isn't it beautiful?
How about we build a shark?
You could try swimming with one.
Splish, splash, splosh...
Come on, you need to get cleaned up.
Taz... What are you doing?
Look at this mess!
We'd better try and tidy a bit.
Sasha won't want to come back to this.
What do I do with this one?
Recycle it, I guess.
Still got the stopper. There's something inside that.
-Guys, guys, look!
-Looks like a message in a bottle.
Let me try.
Looks like a map.
Whoa! Ben Watt's treasure map!
This is our chance to find the missing gold!
Leave my stuff alone!
Don't worry, I've got this.
I don't want her things in my room!
You're sharing, it's HER room.
Do you share?
No, but...that's not the point.
You two share. I'll have YOUR room.
In your dreams!
I'm NOT sharing with her.
What's going on here?
She...is a complete nightmare.
No, no, no. Leave her.
Yeah, you'll have a bit of a bruise.
She's a feisty one!
Yeah, and how many places has she been kicked out of?
Hang in there. It'll be worth it.
How do you do this, all the time?
I ask that question nearly every day.
I just don't get how you stay so calm.
I think I might just have made things worse.
That's what you get for moving my stuff.
You'll pay for this.
Wish it was.
Wait... Will someone please explain?
Well, it just involved some tape and the cold water tap.
Jody - that is not going to solve anything.
I just did it for a laugh.
It's not my fault if she's got no sense of humour.
Just did that bit.
You've got to go and apologise to Taz.
-She's in the quiet room.
-Why should I?
She started it. She threw mud at me first.
Jody, listen to yourself.
You're the older one here.
I'm with Jody.
Taz is awful.
You saw what she did to my room!
Yes, I did, and I will talk to her.
-Does that mean...?
You're still sharing.
So she's rewarded for being bad?
I wouldn't describe sharing with you as a reward, Floss.
No, that's not what I meant.
Come on, guys.
First days are always tough.
That's what I told her.
Do you remember your first day?
Yeah, I do.
When you were all...sweetness and light, calm and collected?
I was a bit wild.
What changed it?
Tracey made me a bath out of jelly.
She made it fun.
Right, there's number ten. Sorted.
Now the rest of the day is ours.
That was genius.
When you do stuff like that, everyone laughs.
"Good old Tyler." "Funny Tyler."
And I get "Typical Ryan."
Always on the make, always looking for the angle.
It's not the scams,
it's the winding people up.
And enjoying it when things go wrong for them.
It's not nice.
Don't hold back, Tyler!
"With the shrapnel at your back
"and the sea at port,
"from the beginning on the sands,
"20 fathoms south
"to where Watt Not stands." What's that supposed to mean?
is six feet.
So that means 20 fathoms
is 120 feet.
Just...how long is a foot anyway?
Erm, I'm five foot.
Mike measured me Monday.
So, 120 feet is equal to 24 Finns.
Finn - lie down here.
I hate to say it, but
it actually looks good!
I told you - I know how to accessorise.
Why do you want everyone not to like you?
What do you mean?
When we're at home, at the house,
you act all mean and stroppy,
like you want people to be scared of you.
Didn't work on you though, did it?
More's the pity.
You don't fool me. I know you're a big softy.
Let's take a selfie!
-We had a brilliant time making it.
Careful. Don't hang around with her too much.
People will start thinking you're soft.
See? You just can't help yourself.
Well - look at it! It's more Little Mermaid than death metal.
She's brought out the inner you, Sash.
Don't listen to him. The inner you is cool, and...
you're so pretty,
and we can do something with your hair and your clothes...
I don't need advice from a silly pink princess like you!
You know what would make me happy...
is if you packed up your smiles, and hugs,
and just left me alone!
THEY COUNT: 23...
Right, go on.
Right... There's nothing here.
Just more rocks.
I knew it! Totally...pointless.
What's the next bit?
"Pace the compass points to find the spot.
"12, 3, 6, 9.
Start with your back to the Watt Not"?
See - totally pointless.
The first part's easy.
A compass is like a clock - north, east, south, west.
12 paces north,
three paces east.
If you know where to start...
But... I don't get it.
All right, lads!
Come on - let's have a team photograph, shall we?
Right, all together...
Just stand in front of Watt's Whatnot, yeah?
Come on - together, that's it, lovely.
Marvellous, thank you.
So THIS is where we start.
-What's up with you?
-Have you seen Candi-Rose?
Not since she was last with you. Have you called her?
Why would I have her number?
-What did you do to her?
-What makes you think I did anything?
No. Nothing. The service is rubbish out here.
Mike's going to be fuming. Are you going to help me find her or not?
-Where did you last see her?
-About five minutes ago...
Look. We can follow her.
Look - over there!
It's her phone.
The footprints -
they've washed away.
Mike talked about the tides.
You don't think...
We need to tell Mike - and fast.
-Where have you been?
-Just doing something for Taz.
Well, it'll have to wait till after lunch.
-Can you give her a shout?
-Seven, eight, nine...
We're not going to find anything.
You're wasting your time.
-What was that?
It's gold. Come on, keep digging!
Put your back into it, that's right...!
Get that bed back in there.
-You are going to share a room.
-No, she isn't.
-You keep out of this.
What? I get no say?
In this circumstance, no.
Come on, you two.
-I don't share. I won't share!
-THEY TALK AT ONCE
Taz can go in my room.
I'll bunk in with Floss, just for a couple of days.
I can't ask you to do that.
Anyway, it's not permanent.
Just until Taz settles in.
Well, if you two are agreed...
She's not much better.
Come on. I've got something in the garden for you.
-Wait, wait, wait!
What...? What's wrong?
Found it, and...relax.
You got a problem?
So you reckon you can beat me?
Right. Let's see what you're made of.
Limbo, limbo, limbo.
Limbo, limbo, limbo...
Chocolate coins. Just chocolate.
Well done, lads, you've found it.
Cracked my fiendishly clever code.
-Yeah, well, I knew how much this legend meant to you, Joseph, so
I set a few clues.
-Well done, Mike! Brilliant plan.
-I'm sorry, guys.
It's all been a wild goose chase.
It was better than rubbish collecting.
Sorry. Environmental beachcombing.
Let's go home.
I really thought we'd found it.
Maybe it's still here somewhere.
Next time...it's going to be REAL treasure.
Yeah. Really good pictures.
-Tyler's a natural.
Oh. Crab's the best.
Seen nothing like that round here.
-Well, it was new to us too.
the Sydney Opera House in the background's pretty good too.
-It's your fault.
-Right, let's have a look at your sand sculpture...
I tripped on my jelly shoe taking a selfie.
-I have a picture though.
Just one problem.
Sasha...you need to learn to smile more in selfies.
All right, guys, come on. Let's saddle up.
I've been horrible to you all day -
and...and now you've saved me
from Mike kicking off, I... I don't get it.
You look after others all the time. But who looks after you?
I don't need looking after.
But you might one day.
Close your eyes.
It's not really my thing, is it?
We should all try something new sometimes.
Can we go back outside?
I'm done. I don't think I can do any more.
Look - why don't you play with Floss?
How about that?
Not the obstacle course, though.
It doesn't have to be.
Just for a few minutes.
Come on. Let's go.
MUSIC BOX PLAYS: "Swan Lake"
This is cool.
Used to help me sleep when I first got here.
You know - if I was scared of anything.
I told you -
I'm not scared.
But I'll leave it here for you anyway.
I always wanted one of them.
When I was a kid.
You can stay here.
I'll move in with Floss.
If Floss doesn't mind...?
I guess it's OK.
You don't have to.
Everything all right?
Yeah, she...changed her mind.
She's moving in with Floss.
Yep. She's moving in with me.
I knew you'd be the right person for the job.
What's the prize? We didn't ask. Did we win?
I think you all did.
Did you have fun?
Well - it wasn't about the tasks,
it was about everybody working as a team,
looking out for each other.
Obeying the rules.
So...what is it?
Don't say chocolate coins.
Go on, then, give us a clue.
All right. Now, let me think.
"brings thrills to the gang."
-What does that mean?
-Work it out.
Is that the best you can do, Mike?
Oh, aye? Come on then, Einstein.
"Ruffian" is an anagram for a funfair.
-I've never been to a funfair before.
It's all right. I'll look after you.
It's what we do here, innit?
Here we come!
Sasha's irritated when her solo day at the beach becomes a group trip. She's buddied with Candi-Rose and less then enthused by Candi-Rose's positivity and relentless questioning.
