# I can make my world come true All my dreams will see me through
-# It doesn't matter What may come my way...
# Believe it now I will win some day. #
Pinch me. I'm dreaming.
The graphics are awesome. I wish reality was this real.
-She's narked about being left here.
She's gonna set fire to the kitchen.
-You lose, boy!
-Still, miles better than what Tracy could do.
-OK, then! Bring it on!
-Did I just die?
-A zombie chopped off your head,
-so you're not feeling TOO terrific.
-When did you get this?
-What'll you do with your old one?
-Sell it, I suppose.
-Hi, guys. >
Nath, what are the odds on Jenny buying Ben's console for the house?
Roughly the same as pigs flying. No, make that pigs colonising Mars.
-It could happen.
-Shut up, Bouncer.
They can't stay in on Saturday. That's the point of action therapy!
To get their attention. You'll get that.
They need empowerment. They need homes.
If anything's going to help them, it's worth trying.
-What?! No way!
-This is Saturday!
-We're playing footie!
-What is more important - one Saturday or...?
-ALL: One Saturday!
-You can't do this!
- Yes, I can do it because I care. - Oh-h!
All we're trying to do is make the REAL you -
the wonderful INSIDE you - obvious to everyone else. Simple, really.
The last thing I want to do is just talk AT you.
Action therapy is about DOING, using your free will to EMPOWER yourselves.
Then, I'm using my own free will and leaving!
All right, you can come with me. > THEY PROTEST LOUDLY
You can think of three challenges that you can set yourselves for life.
One - get out of action therapy.
-so lucky? Because I'd be too much of a handful.
I want to show you how surprising
and challenging action therapy can be.
Go on, then. Surprise me.
OK. I feel like an idiot. Look, honestly, Tracy,
if I'd known you'd get ambushed...
I thought we could have a talk.
Why talk to me, Cam Wilson? I'm a fire-starter, remember? And a thief.
I'd rather drink a cup of cold sick.
It's going really well.
We can't let them get away with it!
-We've gotta do something.
-We'll get into trouble.
-They'll put us in a HOME.
ALL THREE: You're not in a home!
We'll be OK if we stick together. We'll do what Elaine wants, um...
You should pick a spokesperson.
I'm not coming back, Cam Wilson.
-I'd rather have a bath of maggots!
-It's OK for him. He can go.
-He's right. We need a leader. I'll do it.
Well, wait there, wait there.
This is a great idea, but shall we do it right? Have a vote, and that.
And different people to vote for.
-How can Cam show her face here?
-It's typical, eh?
-Can you credit it?
-After letting you down.
She wasn't a great foster mother.
-She was slack.
-And she's come here to tell you what's on her mind.
-She was hopeless...
-She wasn't THAT hopeless.
-She had a lot to cope with.
-Well, she had her chance and blew it.
-Maybe I should see what she's got to say.
-She may love you, but she's too risky.
I'll hear what she's got to say.
- Adele, first. - Well, I'd stand up for your rights.
And adults should stick by the rules, too.
-Yeah. OK. As well as that,
I'm in favour of longer telly hours.
-ALL THREE: Yeah!
-No more action therapy, or other nonsense!
-And extra pudding!
BOUNCER: Pudding! All those for Lol!
ALL THREE: YEAH! HOORAY!
-I wanted to say I'm really sorry about what's happened.
Stop! Communication breakdown got you into this mess.
Talking isn't going to help. Action therapy gets to the heart of things.
Just fall back. Cam WILL be there for you.
It's all about trust. ..OK?
That's very revealing. Now...
I want to do some role play. CHANTING: We want what's fair!
Thank you! CHANTING: We are the kids who care!
I'll be right back!
Yeah. I'm so glad I'm back here under her thumb(!)
THEY CHANT: We want what's fair! We are the kids who care!
Dudes! DUDES! You're kinda, like, in my way here.
-We're staying until our demands are met.
-What do you want?
-BOUNCER: Ask our spokesman.
-Number one -
later bedtimes. Two - a snooker table. Three - a drinks machine...
Chuck us a blanket. I could be here some time!
-They ARE trying to change things.
-..Chips every lunch time.
-50% increase in pocket money.
-Eight - a fresh plate of doughnuts.
I'M the spokesperson. ..With icing.
May I speak to your spokesperson in my office? Excuse me.
-I'm ready to negotiate.
Except for no more action therapy on Saturdays without permission,
-I could be off having fun today.
Elaine, please let me handle this.
-OK. ..So, let's negotiate.
-Look, I'm a reasonable guy.
-I can make those go away!
If you were to buy a certain games console. Very cheap. Great value.
Now, for this role-play, Tracy is Cam, and Cam is Tracy.
Now, let's try breakfast.
Oh, I overslept. Here's your cereal. Sorry, I forgot to buy milk!
-My life is SO hard! Oh, boo-hoo!
-I'm not eating this without milk!
Drop everything and take ME out for breakfast!
I have to go to work, even though it's not really work.
-Call in sick.
-You behave, or I'll lock you up and feed you dog food!
-Or do you want to go back to the Dumping Ground?
This is wonderful. I'm just going to get the anger-management tools.
-I thought her eyes would pop out!
-It's fun being you.
-Do you want to find out what it's really like?
-Let's sneak out.
-No, we should tell someone.
-Wrong answer! Keep playing.
-We got 'em!
-Did we get a satellite dish?
-I'm working on it.
We should go back to helping Elaine.
- I don't think so! - It's tactics.
Yeah. Come on! I know what I'm doing.
-Do you have Ben's mobile number?
-Oh-oh! Wrong answer!
-You don't say sorry. Give 'em a hard stare.
Security hate you hanging around.
-So, are we just gonna sit here?
-No, that would be boring.
-You're gonna nick a load of cheesy biscuits from that stall.
Relax. They're free samples. I'm not asking you to loot a shop.
-Although, that'd be good.
-ALARM BELL RINGS
-Would you like to try one?
I can't believe I did that. Tracy?
-Left a bit. Right!
-< Try it further away now.
SHOUTING ELAINE: Seems to be a big hit.
I was going to get Tracy and Cam to try them, but they just disappeared.
I don't think Tracy needs a bat
to get in touch with her anger. THEY SCREAM
Oh, thank goodness! ..Why did you run off like that?
Do you think it was funny? I was desperate.
That's what it's like being me -
when you expect someone to be there, and, one day...
-..You are totally impossible!
At least I'm not boring. You must miss the excitement.
Girls! Bring those back! ..Oh, there you are.
-About action therapy...
-I'm trying to help.
-It was good.
-We liked it so much, we tried some of our own.
Cam! ..See you next Saturday?
Hi. ..Friends, eh?
Have you brought your old console?
-What's going on?
-Nathan said no way would Jenny buy it.
Pigs would walk on Mars first.
It's a small step for a pig, but a giant leap for pigkind.
Ben's here. Let's go somewhere private.
I said I'd just CONSIDER buying it.
-How much are you asking for it?
-Oh, nothing. I can't go any lower.
-I decided to give it to the house.
-JENNY: Thank you.
So, THAT takes care of your only demand.
And thanks for getting everybody back into the session.
Our ONLY demand? Did you stitch us up?
-Sold us down the river.
-And to think we elected YOU!
-Why don't we have a recount?
-Can they do that?
-All those for Adele.
ALL FOUR: Yes!
I say Lol's banned from playing on our console.
All those in favour. ALL FOUR: Yes!
