-Why are you so pleased with yourself?
I realise how annoyed you get when you see someone smiling.
-Duke, how's the progress report?
-The boring progress report meeting!
- Did you talk about me? - Very amusing, Dolly!
-Oh, Cam's on the phone.
-That woman phones at awkward times.
It's not for you, Tracy. Amber?
Maybe she wants to foster someone who's less of a pain in the bum!
It's called style. I wouldn't expect you lot to understand.
-I wish you wouldn't do that.
-What are you up to?
'It's a well-known fact that on a secret mission,
'you need the right gadget. For the master spy, no meeting is secret.'
You bugged the progress report meeting? Full marks for craftiness,
-minus 50 million for dumbness.
-Nathan was wearing a suit.
It was an important meeting. They have them all the time.
-They could decide to...split me and Bouncer up?
-Oh, no Bouncer,
-no-one for Lol to hide behind.
-And Amber getting phone calls from Cam,
who's to say they weren't talking about you three?
Well, there's only one way to find out for sure.
What did...? How did...?
You can't be a good spy if you can't spot you're being spied on.
-Have you just been out-scammed by Amber?
-My brain must be shrinking.
The nerve! James Bond doesn't go round nicking microfilm
from under people's noses, does he?
But doesn't it make you mad? Amber finding out all sorts of secrets!
-But no-one has any secrets here, Lol.
What if they decide to split us up,
send us to different homes?
Lol, where has this daft idea suddenly come from?
-You can't split up Lol and Bouncer!
-It'd do them good in the long run.
They're a bit old to share a room.
You know, just around.
If they split us up, I might get some work done.
-It would ruin my reputation.
-Clever remark from Bouncer.
Must think of comeback. Can't! My brain really is shrinking!
He bugged the meeting.
But why? Couldn't have been that important.
Louise, Nathan was wearing a suit.
-Hey, kids, want to listen to this?
-For a small fee.
-BOTH: We're not interested.
OK, if you don't want to hear about which blonde person
is so helpful around the house that the staff aren't trying too hard
to find foster parents for her.
Or which person's dad may be getting divorced again.
Or which member of staff, whose name rhymes with penny,
may be off to run a care home in New York.
You two have finally found a hobby you can share.
It's Amber. She's been in her room for ages.
-Amber! Everything OK?
-Yeah, everything's fine.
I was listening to a documentary on the radio about bugs.
It's a very interesting subject.
-Jenny, what's it like in New York, do you know?
-It's wonderful, Amber.
I've been there for a few holidays.
-I'm hoping to go again quite soon.
-Oh, really? That's nice.
Oh, come on, Cam.
Checking up on her?
She hates that.
-Hi, Tracy, I've come to see Amber.
Hi, Cam! Bye, Tracy.
-Shall we go up to my room?
Hey, Lou. Look...
It's not your turn, but could you help with the washing up?
You'd love that. "Get Louise to do it, she never complains."
I'm tired of being kicked around!
I only asked.
But... But are things really OK, Dad?
I mean, really, really? And you're not having any arguments?
The normal kind?! You've only just got married! Pull yourself together!
Is everything OK, Justine?
I thought grown-ups were supposed to be sensible!
-What did I do?
-Apart from bugging the meeting?
-And losing the tape?
-Letting Amber mess with our heads?
-Apart from all that, what did I do?
All right. I'll sort it.
Come on. Let's go.
-I think everybody feels a bit like that sometimes.
-Sorry to bother you.
You know that tape I lent you? Could I have it back, please?
I haven't got it now. I slipped it to my secret agent, 007.
Spying's wrong, isn't it?
A betrayal of trust. It was your responsibility.
You should've kept a look-out. We'll overlook it this time.
Hand over the tape and we'll say no more about it.
I don't have the faintest idea of what you're talking about.
Is that the time?
Love my job!
A school project, you say?
For social studies. Helping us to understand law and order.
What's Tracy got to do with this?
I'm safeguarding your human rights.
Oh... Thank you.
-Go on then.
It's just a regular body search.
-What's wrong with you lot?
-We can't find the tape.
Amber said she gave it to... to a secret contact - Agent 007.
And...who in the house is 007 years old?
It wasn't me! Amber made me do it!
-'If we use your stationery?
-Yes, there is the...'
'..ordering the right amount of paper.'
'..that we usually expect at the end of the month...'
-Is that it?
-Well, I could only record 45 minutes.
45 minutes? How did you expect to get anything in 45 minutes?
You didn't think through this spying business.
But... My brain...
-Oh, my brain...!
-Oh! I've had enough of this.
Jenny, are me and Lol being split up and sent to different care homes?
-Thank you. You're not going for a new job
-in New York?
-I'm certainly not.
-But you've got relatives there?
-I want a word with you.
Probably won't be much help.
Not with me new shrunken brain.
I've been hearing rumours about a tape in our meeting today.
-They asked me to leave the room for a while,
so they could talk about me and I was wondering...?
Obviously some details need to remain confidential.
-But I think they liked the suit.
-And they might've suggested
that you should stand up to Jenny.
-She'll probably respect you more as a professional.
He's still got it.
Thanks, Cam. See you later!
KNOCK AT DOOR Hi, Tracy. Are you busy?
Too busy. I'm making a list of reasons
why you'd foster Amber. She wouldn't mess up your kitchen.
She doesn't know what it's for. You can laugh at those hairdos.
You think I want to foster Amber?
You know before she came here, Amber used to run away a lot?
I was talking about an article I'm writing about runaways.
An article? Is that all?
I'm not sure I'm foster mother material.
You know that better than anyone.
-I'm probably more like big sister material?
-More like ugly big sister.
Well, here it is.
-It's a chat the staff had about you
after we told them about your spying mission.
-We tried it with someone sensible in charge.
-Did it work?
-Like a dream.
-I don't believe you.
-That isn't our problem.
-It mentions how she had an imaginary friend!
-Give me that!
