We're off to the Quantum Nexus
-to bring back the adults.
-I don't want them back!
I'm going to dispatch units to search for your mates.
-You DO realise Tia doesn't want to be with you anymore?!
-trying to split me and Tia up.
-Tia will kill me if I lose
that necklace. I like you. A lot.
BOTH: We don't like you.
ALL: There is no Reese! There is only WE!
-Huen. We're too powerful together.
-We're not far from Fallester Lake.
-It links up with the River Artos!
-Let's do it.
I've told you already.
We didn't steal anything! You got it all wrong.
The lorry was blocking the road.
Its back doors were open and it was empty. Liam and I checked it out.
Yeah, moving the lorry off the road to get past!
You've got the wrong tribe.
The Sparticles have signed the Sheriff's Three Laws.
You're wasting your time with me!
-Was it this one, Boss?
-I can't tell, can I, you fool!
It was dark, and the thief the driver saw was wearing a balaclava.
Knitted mask thing? They cover the whole of your face, yeah?
Apart from the eyes.
If you don't let me and my friends go, I'll MAKE you.
You hear that, Boss? She thinks she can scare you!
-Get her out of here, Skinny. Now.
None of you leave my warehouse till I get my shipment back.
You're traders, aren't you?
-You buy and sell stuff to other tribes?
-The boss is talking, show some respect!
-We SELL stuff.
-We don't give it away for free.
-With all due respect, Mr D,
do you really think we look like a gang of master criminals?
People aren't always what they seem.
Here's what I think - you and your gang hijacked my shipment,
unloaded the boxes onto the getaway vehicle which you all planned
to meet - here. Fallester Lake. You marked it on your map.
What's the point? You wouldn't believe me.
-We're looking for a place called the Quantum Nexus.
If we find it we might be able to bring back the adults.
Well, OK, then.
You're right, I don't believe you.
The boss wants all hundred boxes back!
Or you and your friends are going to be flat-packed!
British Army? What was in them? Guns?! Who are you shipping guns to?
Skinny, any word from Fizzy?
-Where's my shipment?!
It's been any minute for the last two hours!
We NEED the shipment of chocolate so we can get on.
Don't you sponge heads get it? We've got a Quantum Nexus to destroy?!
-No buts, Furry. Serena's on her way to Fallester Lake.
And so are we. Tell the troops we're moving out.
They won't move out until the shipment arrives.
-You know what I hate most?
What good is having an army
if it won't march without its weekly chocolate rations?!
What a bunch of babies!
Here's my last four bars. Pick the best fighters.
Give me that map! Good.
Big D's warehouse is on the way to Fallester Lake.
Let's pay him a visit.
We know you stole the shipment. And we found THIS in your van.
-Where's the rest of the shipment?
-Urgh! Is that dark chocolate?
-Get her out of here!
The little girls are doing me 'ead in!
If we don't find that shipment the Dims will work us over good
Fizzy paid double to buy up all the remaining chocolate stocks.
-Don't worry, Boss, I'll protect you.
Fizzy gets that evil-eyed son-of-a-gun Fury to protect him
and I get YOU.
-No-one else would take me, Boss.
-Yeah, I know.
Luckily for you, loyalty is something I prize very highly.
-Your loyalty makes up for your utter stupidity.
Luckily I'm the top banana.
I've dealt with the likes of the Sparticles before.
-We need surveillance to catch them out.
You go back to the van, check it over again. Look for false bottoms.
-False bottoms, Boss?
-Skinny, the van MIGHT have a false floor
and the chocolate could be stashed there.
It's GOT to be SOMEWHERE!
BANGING ON THE DOOR
-Let me out!
-Come on, let us go!
What I wouldn't give for a tin opener right now.
That wouldn't work! We need a key!
At least we're in this together, that's the main thing.
This warehouse is more like a prison.
Cos it's the only way to protect the stock.
-These traders know what they're doing, you know.
-Leave it out,
Tia's with Jeff.
You think just
cos you're the leader you can tell me what to do?!
'You want a girlfriend,'
find one OUTSIDE of the tribe.
HE CHANGES THE RADIO CHANNEL
'Maybe the others will come and rescue us?'
We don't need the others.
'I'll use my powers to get us out'.
HE LAUGHS Powers! That's a good one!
Do you think that's a good idea after what happened with Huen?
-You did go a bit weird.
-Huen helped me learn how to control my powers.
Keep going! Blow the door off!
DOOR STOPS RATTLING
Sorry, I can't.
Holly and Serena are going to find the Statue of Artos
-while we're locked up in here!
-How can they?
Only we know it's at Fallester Lake?
-Are we sure about that?
-Yes. We've left them for dust.
When I got there, Boss, I found these two,
caught them nicking this lot out of the van.
Looks like these Sparticles are tomb raiders.
We saw the van abandoned by the side of the road. Finders keepers.
"Finders keepers"! That van belongs to me.
No, it doesn't.
-It belongs to the Sparticles.
-Friends of yours, are they?
-We work for Fizzy.
-Course you do.
-There we go. No harm done, good as new.
-And the Sparticles?
Fizzy likes to collect things.
-We'll just take these then and be on our way.
-I don't do free gifts.
Do you need to see my ring again?
It's fine. How much do you want?
-This is a fake. It's too light.
-But my boss would like it.
-We'll give you two fizzies.
Seeing as you work for Fizzy we can give you a special price. Five.
-Three and a half.
-Four and a half.
-Give us directions back to the main road, please.
-Is there a problem?
-You can drop the act, you're Sparticles, all right!
-You find that ring by the side of the road too?!
We're on a mission for Fizzy to find the Quantum Nexus...
Save your breath, we already heard the cover story.
Fizzy's been spotted heading this way. We've got less than an hour.
He's going to stomp on us and squash us like grapes!
-What are we going to do, top banana?
-Er, get a grape of yourself?
Lock up these jokers! THEY LAUGH
So what have you heard on the walkie talkies?
That there's a couple of alpha males circling Miss Gorgeous
and a kid who thinks she's Supergirl.
-Anything on the shipment?
Give 'em a bit longer, they're bound to crack.
Or they're telling the truth and they didn't steal it?
-It's all mind games...
-Secrets and lies...
We could use the lie detector?
WHAT lie detector?
What is that machine?
Two minutes wired up to this baby and you'll tell us everything.
We need to check this lie detector actually works.
-We could test it on, erm...
-That's why you sit in the big chair, Boss.
-I've got nothing to hide.
-Is your name Big D?
-Did you steal my last packet of custard creams last week?
-Are you sure?
-You calling me a liar?
-Course not, Boss.
-Machine's working fine.
Let's break them.
What's that film where they build a glider to escape?
-I saw the one where they dug their way out!
-We could do that!
That won't work. I'm the only one who can get us out of here.
BOTH: You're the only one who can get us out of here.
-Look for something to dig with.
Stand on one leg.
Hop up and down.
Pretend you're lions!
You were controlling us!
-She can't! Not without Huen?
-I don't need him any more!
-Stay away from me!
-Get out of my head!
-You can't stop me.
I can do whatever I want!
I know how to get us out of here. Reese, lie on the floor.
You can't control me.
OK, I'll lie on the floor. Liam, you call the guard.
It's just junk, I know, but it brightens up the van.
-You nearly squashed my feet.
-We didn't steal the shipment.
-Your stupid machine must be broken!
-Because we DIDN'T take it.
-They are lying boss.
-We're not lying.
We're telling the truth! Honestly!
I swear on my brother's... No, I swear on my MUM'S life.
Let's try again, shall we? Where...?
You're just going to get more lies, Boss.
Maybe we're just asking the wrong questions.
You fancy Tia?
-You don't have to answer that.
-Yes, you do.
-Yeah, I fancy Tia.
-No, scratch that. I LOVE Tia.
-Do you fancy Rocky?
-No, I don't fancy Rocky!
-Someone's telling porky pies!
When I was itchyflaxed, you said you wanted us to get back together.
You heard what you wanted to hear.
Did you drop Tia's necklace in the river? Yes or no?
-Leave it, man, move on.
-Yes or no?!
-You lost my necklace, why do you keep blaming him?!
-He's a liar!
-YOU'RE a liar!
-Face up it to it, pal. Those two don't care about you.
But I kinda like you, you got guts. So here's the deal.
Tell me where the shipment is and I'll let you go.
-We didn't steal it!
When are you clowns going to realise someone else took your gear?!
-Now give us our treasure back and let us go!
-I thought this was "just junk"?
-It IS just junk.
-We just call it treasure as a joke.
-I don't see anyone laughing.
So, if this is just junk, you won't care if I smash it up then.
-Whatever floats your boat. Go on... Knock yourself out.
-He was bluffing!
-What if he wasn't?!
-You could've destroyed everything, Rocky!
-You were bluffing, right?
No, I was going to smash 'em up.
From now on just keep your mouth shut.
-It's all just a joke to you, isn't it?
I thought you really truly wanted to see your mum again?
Skinny, I think it's time we let this lot sweat it out for a bit.
-Lock them up,
We're running out of time before Fizzy gets here.
-Has anyone got any water?
No. Are you OK?
You're burning up.
Thanks. That feels good.
Here, I've got a hankie you can...
Listen, it's not what you think.
You told me that Jeffrey dropped this in the river.
That's... That's because...
-Cat got your tongue?
-You knew how much this meant to me.
-I was going to give it you back.
-Stay away from me!
I don't want anything to do with you.
Tia, don't say that.
I wish you'd never joined us.
You're not one of the Sparticles.
Never were, never will be.
It's lack of water, I think,
And food and stress, of course.
-It's open, come on!
-Jeff, where's the exit?
-How do we get out?
ALL TALK AT ONCE
Right, you lot, in your cells.
ALL SHOUT AT ONCE
-Get in there.
-Leave her alone!
Come here, you!
ALARM STOPS I'm not sharing a room with you.
Get in there!
FOOTSTEPS, DOOR OPENS
BOTH SIGH WITH RELIEF
Let us out!
-We're burning up.
It's cooler closer to the floor.
I thought you only cared about yourself?
Sadiq, can you hear me?
Try and open your eyes. Oh, come on! Don't die on me!
I'm not the horrible person you think I am.
I want to train to be a doctor...
and then maybe I'd know how to save you.
You tricked me!
I think it's you who has been doing the tricking.
Admit it - it's you who's been secretly helping us out.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Pointing out the head to me back at the stadium,
slipping me Ventriman's address back at the mill.
Come on, Serena. You're on our side.
Can I trust you?
-You can't trust Holly.
-She's my friend.
She's nobody's friend.
Am I your friend?
I barely know you.
get to know me.
You want another one?
Big D said the thief wore one of these.
This is the shipment! These are the stolen bars of chocolate!
-It's an inside job!
The thief wore this balaclava so the driver wouldn't recognise him.
And that's not all.
I know how we can find out who it is.
Sorry I messed things up.
LOCKS IN DOOR TURN
If you thought it was hot before, try it together!
-There's too many of us!
-There's no air!
-We're never going to make it!
Talk turkey or you'll all be stuffed and roasted!
ALL SHOUT AT ONCE
Line up in front of me.
Wave your arms up and down.
That feels much better.
Aaah! Not again.
SHE GROANS IN PAIN
Did you just use your powers on us to turn us into a human fan?
So the freak's an even bigger freak these days?
That's right, Holly.
And this "freak" doesn't need the Quantum Nexus.
I'm going to use my powers to bring the adults back!
Come back! That's an order!
'Five minutes and they'll be at the main gate, Boss!'
-Bring in the Sparticles.
They should be half dead by now, and ready to confess to anything.
He's the chocolate thief! Skinny.
Please, Rocky, I can't stand the...
I messed up, Tia. This is my way of putting things right.
He's got a screw loose.
And a dislocated shoulder.
Nice one, Rocky!
Let's go get our stuff back.
We need the treasures - what are you doing?
Going after them got us into all this trouble.
Let's just find the rest of the statue at Fallester Lake
-and smash it up, yeah?
-I guess you're right. Let's go.
Next stop, the Quantum Nexus.
Big D, we need to talk.
I'm glad you saw sense. Where's Skinny?
-You're not Skinny.
-All right, let's not get personal.
Give me that offensive weapon.
Callum, where did you come from? How did you know we were here?
I didn't until I spotted the Spartivan down the road.
I'm here to stop a shipment of chocolate getting to Fizzy.
-He's going to use it to control his army.
-You're too late.
It's gone. Stolen.
No, it's here!
-We found it in one of the storage rooms.
-I helped load it on the lorry myself.
-It was him!
He robbed it from the lorry.
And wore a balaclava so you wouldn't know it was him.
They're lying, Boss! I would never steal from you.
The balaclava is in his pocket.
You found the chocolate in their van.
You could have put it there.
It was them! You saw the lie detector.
That's the thing -
I never saw the screen, did I? You did.
They were telling the truth.
You're the one who's lying.
Come on, Boss, it's me - Skinny! Sheriff!
-Skinny, did you steal the chocolate shipment?
Wire him up.
He stole my custard creams!
Wait, this is all over biscuits?
Skinny, do this, Skinny, do that.
I got bored of taking orders.
I thought if Fizzy took you out for losing the shipment,
I'd get to be in charge around here.
So much for undying loyalty.
It's every man for himself now.
You're so wrong. The world is what we make it.
Skinny, you broke one of the three rules -
you don't steal from your own tribe.
No, the first rule was not stealing from OTHER tribes.
It's an amendment.
RADIO CRACKLES 'Fizzy's broken through the gates!
'Lock the warehouse door!'
'Give that here. Hello, Big D. Fizzy here.
'I'm coming to have a word with you.'
-Fizzy will be here in a minute! What do we do?
-You're asking me?
Sadiq, we can't let Fizzy get his hands on the chocolate.
He'll use it to get the Dim Army back on side
-and then he'll be on a rampage...
-And back after us!
Callum, we care about the new society,
but right now all that matters to the Sparticles
is getting to the lake with the treasures. Help us out!
-I'm only a mediator. I can't...
-That's no use!
You sheriffs, you're toothless tigers!
-'Open this door or I'll smash it down.'
Coming, Your Royal Highness!
-Not so fast, Big D.
I'll be willing to overlook
the illegal imprisonment of an innocent tribe
IF you and the traders agree to help out the Sparticles.
Sheriffs are 3,000 strong now, Big D. I am the law.
So you're asking me to co-operate?
You've been harbouring Fizzy's
public enemy tribe number one - the Sparticles.
You said I'd imprisoned them a minute ago.
-You're in charge then, Sheriff.
-Right, get out of here now.
I'll stay behind and destroy the chocolate.
No, wait! I'll do it.
They've got a better chance if you go with them, Sheriff.
-Let me do this one last thing to help you.
-You'd really do this?
Find the rock that speaks at Fallester Lake.
-Find the Quantum Nexus and please bring back my mum.
D, is there a back way out of this place?
In the loading bay. There's an access tunnel for the water mains.
Comes out near the main road.
Right, let's go!
Maybe you should give Jeffrey one last chance.
I think I'm going to try being single. It makes life a lot easier.
Maybe you've never really been a Sparticle but...
you've been your own person through and through.
Your mum would be proud of you.
-Take care, champ.
Let's get this party started.
One more step and I'll turn your chocolate into...
Hmm, Bluebell Bonanza.
Or Crimson Cascade.
Easy, boys! What's going on?
OK, you lot.
Hot chocolates all round. With custard creams.
IF you tell your respective Dim platoons
to stay away from the Quantum Nexus.
-Oh, come on!
-OTHERS MURMUR AGREEMENT Yeah, good idea.
-I like that.
VAN HORN BEEPS
Whatever this Nexus thing is, we better find it, and find it fast.
ALL SHOUT Two minutes to midday!
We're all going to die!
-Reese, what's wrong with you?
-What's going on?
-Holly's heard everything!
-Serena, let's go!
-I'll save you, Muna, I promise!
-Save yourselves, Reese!
The Quantum Nexus - I'm going to smash it up.
And none of you are going to stop me!
