-Find the Quantum Nexus...
-I don't want them back.
-I'm Emperor Fizzy.
I'm going to dispatch crack units to search for your mates.
What if this tells us where the Quantum Nexus is?
"Property of the Great British Museum."
-We've got to go to the museum.
-Holly, you're a traitor.
There are fizzes in your pocket that Fizzy paid you off with.
I'm going to make sure the adults never come back.
The race to the Quantum Nexus is on.
This message on the stone head, the symbols are so fascinating.
We don't want fascinating, Reese.
We want translated or we'll never beat Holly
and Serena to the Quantum Nexus.
Come on. For all we know, they're here already.
Tagged a few museums in my time, but I've never actually been in one.
Well, don't get too excited,
the Great British Museum doesn't sound like much of a laugh riot.
It's just a clever exhibit.
Clever, mechanical exhibit.
-Not quite believing you, Jeff.
-One more step and we open fire.
-Don't be such a chicken.
-I'm a sheriff.
The Sparticles want to return
a stone head that was stolen from here in the Dim raid.
Leave it at the front door. We'll collect it when you're gone.
Well, er, that worked.
Actually, they're into history, just like you.
They want to find out more about the stone head and the writings on it.
-Can we come in?
-No-one comes in.
You've got ten seconds to leave or we open fire.
-There's no need for that, mate.
We're unarmed, you can't just throw...
..three, two, one.
Nice work, Sheriff.
Serena, what's happening?
Your mates are taking a pounding.
They're not my mates. Not any more.
Oof, direct hit on The Sheriff.
I thought they were, like, untouchable.
I can see the head.
-Steve's left the back doors unlocked.
-What a numpty.
We've got to swipe it.
We can find out what the message on the head says before the Sparticles.
I'm on it.
Easy, you took a belter right to the mush. How you doing, champ?
Gone right off tomatoes, that's for sure. Thanks for helping.
That's all right.
You OK, Tia? Here, let me.
No, it's all right.
Who were those nutters?
Oh, that's the History Tribe. As geeky as the name suggests.
Ol' Beaky is a kid called Boff.
Had the place locked down after the last Dim raid.
So he can play dress-ups?
No, to save the treasures inside from the looters.
-To preserve our historical heritage.
-And you are?
I'm Rocky, leader of the Featherheads.
Why are you called the Featherheads?
Better than Eggheads.
Listen, maybe it's better I show you why.
It's all right. We've got to work out a way of getting in there.
Well, I think I could help with that. Maybe throw in a bit of tea, as well.
We breed the birds and sell the eggs. Feed thousands of kids.
Look, one of them's hatching.
-You sure got it sorted here for your tribe, Rockefeller.
-I wish we had.
The generator that runs the incubators is out of juice
and the Dims have jacked up the price of fuel.
It's going to cost us 100 gold fizzes to fill her up
and we've only got one gold fizzy to our name.
-Don't look at us.
-I wasn't, I saw the motor out the front.
But listen, in the museum they've got gold, jewellery, coins.
You name it, they've got it. Just sitting there.
We need to get in there and melt it down and make it into fizzes.
You can't do that, they are priceless objects.
Yeah, that's what Boff said.
Erm, Rocky, if you're out of fuel, then how are the lights still on?
I'll show ya.
We've rigged up the manual generator, but it's no good.
They generate electricity, but only as long as they keep going.
But it's cruelty to children. Can't they stop and rest for a minute?
If they stop, we lose power. We lose power and the chicks die.
We need them to grow and to lay eggs or we can't make a living.
And we'll starve. We need to buy that fuel.
My heart's breaking, Rocky,
but we've got a major headache of our own.
And like I said, maybe we can help with that.
We're both trying to get into the museum. Why don't we work as a team?
That would break the first law - tribes don't steal from tribes.
But the second law says that tribes must trade goods at a fair price.
If Fizzy can't obey the rules, then, sorry, but why should we?
Because that's what he wants - tribes fighting each other
so he can take over. Let me talk to Boff to see if we can work it out.
If you want to play sheriff, then go ahead.
Waste your own time, but me and the gang have got a break-in to plan.
Look, I'm all for the three laws and all that,
but in this situation, Rocky is our best shot.
-For all those in favour, say "Yeah".
Tia, we can't help Rocky loot the gold from the museum.
The gold isn't our problem. But the quest is.
We need to find out what the message on the stone head means.
For all we know, Holly and Serena are already in the museum.
Come on, my little chicks.
If we can source them some fuel, they won't need the gold.
Basement door, quick!
Oh, no, there's a keypad.
The chance of you hitting the right code are a gazillion to one.
Let's be logical. You're in charge of museum security
-and you pick a four digit number.
So you think that of a famous date in history that everybody knows.
-Science is my thing.
-Lucky for us, history is mine.
-Great Fire of London, 1666.
This is never going to work.
-Signing of the Magna Carta, 1215.
Holly, we don't have time for this.
OK, I've got it. Battle of Hastings, arrow in the eye,
Here's the plan - Featherheads, lie in wait back here.
Sparticles, drive the van towards the museum.
Then, Sadiq, you floor it to break down the doors
and bish, bash, bosh! We enter the museum through the hole, yeah?
Hold your horses, soldier. We're not using the van as a battering ram.
It's our home.
-It'll get smashed up.
-You've got a tractor in the yard, use that.
It's empty. We siphoned all the fuel to keep the generator going.
Well, you're not using the Sparty van. End of.
We stole the head from there.
How are we going to get past those weirdos and their weapons?
How do you feel about pigtails?
-There's Beak Face.
-Stay calm and keep walking.
Who are you?
Witchfinder General, over there!
-We won't let them get away.
-Hey, thief! Hands off our food.
-I'm not stealing.
I think I can use this to solve your fuel problem.
Don't know what planet you're from, but round these parts,
we don't get many fizzes for a bucket of corn.
You don't need to buy fuel, you can make your own.
-Where's your muck heap?
-Follow your nose.
Why didn't Fizzy nick this gold?
He's got gold coming out of his ears.
He wanted the stone head cos it's the oldest in Britain.
He likes stuff he can show off with.
Here, this is where the stone head was.
"The head was dug up along with other Celtic objects.
"Around the base of the neck you can see an ogham inscription."
Very helpful, but what's ogham?
Serena, here, these symbols, they look like the ones on the head.
-Ogham is an ancient alphabet.
So the message on the head is in ogham.
How do we translate it into English?
Mum got me into boxing to keep me out of trouble.
Did it work?
Yeah, got so fit the police could never catch me.
-What are those?
They were pictures of my mum.
Why did you take them down?
I miss my dad.
Last thing he got me was this.
She's a knockout.
We're losing power! The Featherheads are too tired. Come on!
-No sign of them yet, Boff.
-Keep looking. They can't have gone far.
Hold on a minute.
Respect the three laws.
I'll get the ammo and some throwers.
No, wait. I want to hear what The Sheriff's got to say. Let him in.
-You were saying.
-Warriors, they're in here.
They're exhausted. We need fresh legs. We have to take over.
We haven't got time, we need to get to the museum.
Just ten minutes, please. All the chicks will die.
Liam, the bicycle.
-What is wrong with you?
-I need the muck from the middle.
It's started fermenting,
so I can use it to kick-start a chemical reaction.
You need help. Seriously.
Have you got any rotting fruit?
Sheriff, there is no fuel. The museum's solar powered.
Have you got anything to sell to raise the money?
None of it's for sale.
-Don't I know you?
-She's the Dim who stole the head.
She works for Fizzy. Check out the ring.
Lock them up. Thief.
-Fizzy won't like that.
-Serena, don't sweat it.
He'll send more Dims to free us as soon as our bodyguards
report us missing.
They're bluffing. Come on.
Lock him up.
The History Tribe signed up to the three laws, remember?
The ring of Fizzy wields far more power
than your little badge ever will.
You don't scare me.
I'll get Fizzy to protect the museum if you lock him up.
Do what she says.
You're making a big mistake.
Unlock the cabinet with the gold cylinder in it.
If this doesn't work, I'm going to kill you.
If this doesn't work, it'll kill us both.
It's called the decoder.
Made by monks in the Middle Ages to help translate the ancient texts.
So that symbol in Ogham is a B?
That's right. You can rotate any of the wheels
and the others switch to the correct translation.
-I think we can take it from here.
Look, mate, I'd prefer the stocks, I've got a really bad ankle.
Load him in, boys.
Hello? Who's there?
Hey, you can't do that! Sadiq! Sadiq!
-Rocky, he's stolen the fuel.
-I feel bad to you. Really, I do, but...
I need that gold.
Come on, to the museum!
They're memories. Everyone who passes through
leaves something behind that reminds them of the family they lost.
I had to do what she said, Sheriff.
-I don't want Fizzy taking this.
-Look, he doesn't want your past.
He wants your future.
Where are the girls?
Warriors, defend the gold!
P...E. What's that noise?
Ignore it. Keep decoding, we've nearly got the whole message.
No, you're not coming in here.
There's no gold in here! I promise you.
Looks like you could use some help.
-We need to find this place.
It's got to be near where the head was dug up.
-Forget it! We know where we're going.
Thanks, Sheriff. Look, about earlier...
-Just tell me where the girls are.
-In the Celtic room.
They're using the decoder to translate the message on the head.
-It's going to blow!
-She's not going to blow.
Please don't blow!
What? It's working.
-You're not coming in here!
-Coming through, bro.
There's no gold, Rocky. Get out.
-What is all this junk?
-You wouldn't understand.
Some things are more important than gold.
-What are these doing here?
-I'm keeping the memory alive, Rocky.
-Let it go, Boff. She's not coming back.
-She's our mum.
-She deserves to be remembered.
-You need to stop living in the past.
-All this, the museum, no-one cares any more.
-Our history is important.
-And so is the future.
Come back to the farm, Boff. That's what Mum would have wanted.
For us to be a team.
It's too late. Holly and Serena decoded the message. They've gone.
How could they? We've got the Stone Head. We don't have the message.
-A lot's happened since you went for your rest on the farm, Sadiq.
-How did the girls work it out?
-They ripped out a page from my notebook.
I copied down the message, that's how.
We can decode the message using the Head and catch up with them.
No, they've taken the thing they used to decode it.
They're going to get to the Quantum Nexus first and destroy it.
OK, guys. Let me think.
-Look! It's the same symbols on the Stone Head.
-Are you sure?
I've drawn them so many times I'd recognise them with my eyes shut.
-What is it?
-This must be the decoder Holly and Serena used.
Wait! We need that!
We're moving out!
-Turn the engine off. Reese is in there.
I've got it!
All right, come on.
-'There's someone in there! Rocky!'
One of us needs to get that jar.
I'm not going to get it. That thing could blow at any second.
I'd go, but you're faster than me.
Let's draw straws.
All right. I'll go.
-You were right. I am faster.
-See? I told you it wouldn't blow.
THEY APPLAUD AND CHEER
Stop! Reese is in there!
Stop! Stop! There's someone in there!
Stop! Wait! Wait!
Rocky, stop! Rocky!
Moment of truth.
Rocky, there's someone in there!
Rocky! Rocky! Stop!
There's someone in there!
How do we decode the message now?
I'm never going to see my mum again, am I?
MACHINE SPRINGS TO LIFE
I saw it. I saw the message on the Stone Head.
"Behold Artos, merciful god who saved us from the Roman sword
"and led us to shelter here by the river,
"to the white horse that leaps the highest."
Reese! You legend!
The generator's working!
"Behold Artos, merciful god who saved us from the Roman sword
"and led us to shelter here by the river
"to the white horse that leaps the highest."
What is this white horse that leaps the highest, do you think?
Something like the Stone Head. Sculpture of the horse.
A piece of jewellery?
Whatever it is, it's got to be over 2,000 years old.
And I know one thing for certain,
we're ahead of the Sparticles in the race to the Quantum Nexus.
It's bio fuel, made from manure.
One person's waste is another person's gold.
From now on, we obey the third law and recycle everything.
-Look, I'm not sure I really deserve this.
-I didn't do it for you.
I did it for us.
We're supposed to be fixing this world, not destroying it.
-There's the biggest river.
-But I don't see a white leaping horse.
Now I've translated the message on the Stone Head,
and we know roughly where we'll find the Quantum Nexus,
we should head for the hills and I'll try and tune into it,
using my special powers.
-Chump, you mean.
-We're fighting for your tribe. I get that.
-I thought about what you said. About mum.
-About being a team.
-What? You're coming back home?
No. The museum's my home now.
But while you're waiting for more bio fuel to brew,
you can hook up to our solar panels, if you supply us with eggs.
There's a lot of casualties at the Battle of Bluewater.
They're calling in their sheriffs.
-You can't leave us. We've just got you back.
-And me and Liam need you.
So do those kids who are hurt. Tia, one of us should go too.
I'll go. But there is no way I'm missing out on the quest.
-I'll meet you there in three days.
-OK, let's get going, guys.
We've got to find a leaping white horse.
-Hey, Sheriff. Look after her.
"Gone to get Mum back".
Nice one, champ.
-We're following a trail of horse poo.
-I'm short on a clown act.
We're just the clowns you're looking for.
Holly's trapped underground and unless you help me,
she's going to be buried alive.
