0:01:100:01:14

DOLLY: Get us some Breckles, Duke. You're the only one who's kind.

About 17 boxes should do it.

-OK, Duke?

-I'll see what I can do.

This is never gonna work.

-'Here's the second one...'

-Elaine?

0:01:390:01:42

Sorry?

MUSIC: "Year 3000" by Busted

0:02:220:02:25

# One day when I came home at lunchtime

0:02:320:02:36

-# I heard a funny noise

-Went out to find out if it was

0:02:360:02:40

# One of those rough boys

0:02:400:02:41

# Stood there with my neighbour called Peter

0:02:410:02:45

-# And a Flux Capacitor

-He told me he had a time... #

0:02:450:02:49

-You don't think you've got a chance?!

-As good a chance as you.

0:02:490:02:54

-Bet you don't know the answer to question two.

-Hard to remember -

0:02:540:02:58

'80s music - an acquired taste.

0:02:580:03:01

I've never even heard Duran Duran, but Lol's got it up here.

0:03:010:03:05

Shame YOU haven't! Thanks, Bouncer.

0:03:050:03:08

'Here is the final question...' Shh! It's on.

0:03:080:03:11

'It's Michael Jackson's favourite food. What is it?

0:03:110:03:15

'Is it A - boring old spaghetti, B - even more boring tuna casserole,

0:03:150:03:20

'or C - a scrumptious bowl of delicious Breckles?

0:03:200:03:24

'Phone lines are open. We'll speak to someone in a moment.'

0:03:240:03:29

-Breckles!

-Oh, thanks, Crash.

0:03:330:03:37

Oh, money!

0:03:410:03:44

-Off the phone now!

-She'd love to talk to you. It's Cam from New York.

0:03:440:03:49

I've got so much to tell you, but not now. See you!

0:03:500:03:54

'We've a caller who thinks they've got the answers. What is your name?

0:04:010:04:05

-'Tracy Beaker.

-Hi, Tracy. How old are you?

0:04:050:04:09

-'Easily old enough to go to concerts like this.

-Is that right?!

0:04:090:04:14

'..That is the correct answer. This is the second...'

0:04:140:04:19

I can't believe I couldn't get through.

0:04:190:04:22

'Duran Duran.'

0:04:220:04:24

Tracy's on the radio. 'Well done, Tracy.'

0:04:240:04:28

ELAINE: How did she know that? 'Now it's time for the biggie.'

0:04:280:04:32

Come on, Tracy!

0:04:320:04:35

-Hayley!

-Sorry.

0:04:350:04:37

-'Are you feeling nervous?

-No way!

-It's the third and final question.

0:04:370:04:43

'Michael Jackson's favourite food is A - boring spaghetti,

0:04:430:04:47

'B - boring tuna casserole, or C - a bowl of delicious Breckles?

0:04:470:04:52

-'C - your sponsor...'

-Where is Tracy Beaker?

-Sh-h!

0:04:520:04:56

-MICHAEL: In the office.

-Right.

-It's a fix.

0:04:560:05:00

ALL: Crash! I think she's done it.

0:05:000:05:04

'Congratulations to Tracy Beaker!'

0:05:040:05:07

-Yes!

-'Awards tonight - you're going.

0:05:070:05:10

'Let's have some more music for you now.'

0:05:100:05:14

-What are you doing in here?

-I've won! I'm going to the awards.

0:05:280:05:33

-You need permission to use that phone.

-Sorry about that.

0:05:330:05:37

But, hey, I won! I've won! I've won!

0:05:370:05:40

I've won!

0:05:400:05:41

Bad luck, Lol. Perhaps you can have one of the tickets,

0:05:410:05:46

but then perhaps not. There are other people I have to consider.

0:05:460:05:51

Bouncer. ..Maybe not.

0:05:510:05:55

Michael. ..Oh, definitely not.

0:05:550:05:57

Jackie, would you like to come? One down, two to go.

0:05:570:06:01

-Crash?

-No way. I'm not supporting Breckles.

-Fine.

0:06:010:06:06

Ah!

0:06:060:06:07

-JACKIE: Tracy, are you all right?

-Of course. Too many Breckles.

0:06:070:06:12

Someone mature should go with her.

0:06:120:06:15

I'm certainly not going with Tracy.

0:06:150:06:17

-I'm not sure that she should be allowed to go at all.

-I-I could...

0:06:170:06:22

-There are things I need to sort out.

-What is it, Hayley?

0:06:220:06:26

-I'm Tracy's slave. She's giving me a ticket.

-Get me a chair.

0:06:260:06:31

That won't be necessary.

0:06:400:06:42

You can go now, Hayley.

0:06:420:06:46

OK. Let's talk tactics. What time am I leaving?

0:06:460:06:49

This phone is out of bounds, as well you know.

0:06:490:06:52

All the children wanted to win, but none of them broke any house rules.

0:06:520:06:57

-However, we have decided to let you go to the concert.

-Yes!

0:06:590:07:04

-There are things we need to straighten out first.

-Like what?

0:07:040:07:08

I'm going to draw lots to see who goes with you.

0:07:080:07:12

Elaine has agreed to accompany you.

0:07:120:07:15

Elaine!

0:07:160:07:17

Thank you, Shelley. Thank you.

0:07:170:07:20

Well done...Michael!

0:07:420:07:45

Yes! Yes! Yes! Thanks, Shelley.

0:07:450:07:48

DUKE: And the second one is...

0:07:500:07:53

-Dolly!

-Yes! Yes! Yes!

0:07:530:07:55

Thanks(!) It'll be the worst night of my life.

0:07:550:07:59

-If you don't want to go...

-I didn't say that.

0:07:590:08:03

Come on, Tracy. We're waiting.

0:08:180:08:22

-Hey, nice shades!

-Get off!

0:08:290:08:32

-Is everyone ready to rock and roll?

-ALL: Hey!

0:08:320:08:36

-Tracy, are you all right?

-Yeah.

-You look very pale.

-Mmm.

0:08:360:08:40

Come on. Let's wave them off.

0:08:400:08:42

-Tracy?

-Tracy?

-Tracy? Tracy, are you all right?

0:08:490:08:54

-Tracy?

-Tracy?

0:08:540:08:55

'Good morning. It's eight o'clock. It's gonna be absolutely lush today.

0:08:550:09:01

'So, come on. Get up. We have some quality tunes coming your way...'

0:09:010:09:07

Good morning, Tracy. How are you feeling?

0:09:140:09:18

-Take it easy. You're in hospital.

-Don't cry. You'll be fine.

0:09:210:09:27

-They've taken your appendix out.

-What?!

0:09:270:09:31

-"Dear Tracy...I don't know what to say, but..."

-Give it to me.

0:09:390:09:45

Have you finished yet, boys?

0:09:450:09:48

Good. And remember, when you visit her in hospital,

0:09:480:09:51

don't go on about how brilliant the concert was.

0:09:510:09:55

It might make her jealous. Just play it cool. OK?

0:09:550:09:58

"Dear Tracy, we all miss you.

0:10:010:10:04

"Get well soon. We can't wait to have you back"?!

0:10:040:10:08

Can I cross out that last bit?

0:10:080:10:10

Of course, this is the second time

0:10:110:10:14

-they've taken my appendix out.

-You've only got ONE.

0:10:140:10:17

I was sent home before they could do the first one. I had an infection...

0:10:170:10:22

in my NOSE.

0:10:220:10:24

Mmm, that's nice(!)

0:10:240:10:27

You'll find it starts to hurt today. After a couple of days,

0:10:270:10:31

-you get used to it. Want to see my scar?

-No, thanks(!)

0:10:310:10:36

Tracy! Oh, how are you?

0:10:370:10:40

So, you went, then?

0:10:410:10:44

Thanks, Tracy. I took your ticket.

0:10:440:10:46

You lot went to the awards?

0:10:460:10:49

We got you loads of presents.

0:10:490:10:52

Wicked! You lot went to the awards?

0:10:520:10:54

It... It was actually quite dull in parts. You wouldn't have liked it.

0:10:540:10:59

-I think I saw you on TV.

-Really?

-Yes. You were dancing at the front.

0:10:590:11:05

I was! That was me! How did I look?

0:11:050:11:08

Kind of goofy.

0:11:080:11:09

-It was absolutely brilliant!

-Elaine danced with everyone!

0:11:090:11:14

We went backstage! We were treated like royalty.

0:11:140:11:17

Don't forget, you're supposed to be visiting me.

0:11:170:11:21

I'm tired. You'd better go - in case I become infectious.

0:11:210:11:25

BOTH: # Tracy's sick, Tracy's bad Tracy collapsed and she went mad

0:11:350:11:39

# Doc cut her up with sticks Took away her appendix. #

0:11:390:11:42

See you soon. We miss you.

0:11:420:11:44

Come on.

0:11:440:11:46

-Cool cakes, Tracy.

-Here!

0:11:480:11:50

Have 'em! They'll make you even fatter.

0:11:500:11:54

What?!

0:11:560:11:57

-Guess what's for lunch?

-We can't eat those. They're disgusting.

0:12:000:12:05

Shelley says, "No more food until the Breckles are gone."

0:12:050:12:09

-They're full of goodness.

-I told you this wouldn't work!

0:12:090:12:12

TOY BEEPS: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

0:12:130:12:17

(Psst! Psst!)

0:12:170:12:19

-(Tracy!)

-What?!

0:12:190:12:21

-There's someone else.

-Tell them to bog off.

0:12:210:12:24

Bog off!

0:12:240:12:27

Hi, Tracy.

0:12:270:12:30

Cam! I thought you were in New York.

0:12:300:12:34

Not any more. Ah!

0:12:340:12:36

Ow!

0:12:360:12:37

-Oh, sorry.

-It's OK.

0:12:370:12:40

-I caught the first plane, I was so worried about you.

-I've missed you.

0:12:440:12:49

-I've missed you, too.

-This is better than anything.

0:12:490:12:52

Um, Cam...

0:12:520:12:54

Is that for me?

0:12:580:13:00

How do you annoy an adult? Watch and learn.

0:13:030:13:08

Hello, Earth calling Cam!

0:13:100:13:13

..Then we'll paint the car yellow and have snake pies.

0:13:130:13:16

-What?

-I had a pet stone once - it wasn't as boring as you!

0:13:160:13:21

Oh, I'm sorry. I was thinking about New York.

0:13:210:13:25

-What a place! And the writing course...

-Blah, blah, blah!

0:13:250:13:30

If it was that great, why haven't you written a bestseller yet?

0:13:300:13:34

I don't know what to write about.

0:13:350:13:38

Hello! You could write the adventures of Tracy Beaker.

0:13:400:13:44

The Amazing Tracy Beaker! Beaker The Bold!

0:13:440:13:47

Tracy In Space!

0:13:470:13:51

-A children's book based on...

-The most interesting person you know.

0:13:510:13:55

-They said write what you know...

-Like I said - me!

0:14:060:14:10

-I know about kids in care.

-M-E - me!

0:14:100:14:13

I'm going to write a book about the Dumping Ground.

0:14:130:14:16

That'll take you less than ten seconds!

0:14:160:14:20

Nothing ever happens here!

0:14:200:14:23

-Tracy.

-Why can't I tell anyone?

0:14:290:14:31

If the kids know I'm watching them, they won't act natural.

0:14:310:14:36

Their natural state is barely breathing!

0:14:360:14:39

-Agh!

-James!

0:14:410:14:44

Shh, keep your voice down. Oh, little brother.

0:14:440:14:48

-What are you doing here?

-I need to lie low. Don't tell anyone.

-Huh?

0:14:480:14:53

Bazam-bazoo!

0:15:010:15:04

Marco! Why do we have to do all the work around here?

0:15:060:15:12

Oh, look, you can call it The Dumping Ground Kids Do Chores!

0:15:120:15:16

What's she twittering on about?

0:15:160:15:19

Cam's looking for ideas for her book about the Dumping Ground.

0:15:190:15:22

-I've got millions of ideas.

-You'll need illustrations.

0:15:250:15:29

Thanks(!) I don't want a pile of mad adventures.

0:15:290:15:32

Don't blow a valve - I'll write some proper stories.

0:15:320:15:37

-Quick, follow me.

->

0:15:400:15:42

Come on!

0:15:420:15:45

Social workers! I left their stupid halfway house for good.

0:15:500:15:55

-You ran away?

-Yeah, I have. I nicked a few quid off them.

0:15:550:15:59

-Why?

-It's stupid, but I needed to get here. Have you any cash?

0:15:590:16:04

-A little bit.

-I'll get a job straightaway.

0:16:040:16:07

-And a flat.

-Are you going to take me with you,

0:16:070:16:12

like you said you would? I knew you'd never let me down.

0:16:120:16:16

Carry on like you would if I wasn't here.

0:16:250:16:28

-That's a lovely photo of you.

-It's to put on the cover of your book.

0:16:390:16:44

What book?

0:16:460:16:48

-You want to be in it, too?

-Not in it - ON it. On the cover.

0:16:480:16:52

So mums and dads can see how nice I look.

0:16:520:16:55

Somebody nice will come and take you home one day, I'm sure.

0:17:070:17:12

-Only if you put my picture on the cover.

-Let me get this right.

0:17:120:17:17

You're writing a book about Dolly?

0:17:170:17:20

-About everyone who lives here.

-Thanks, Dolly.

0:17:200:17:23

THUMPING AND BANGING

0:17:240:17:27

Agh!

0:17:270:17:30

-Who are you hiding?

-You're hurting me!

-Good!

0:17:360:17:40

-Agh! Get off!

-I will when you tell me.

0:17:400:17:43

-It's a secret!

-That's never stopped you before!

0:17:430:17:46

-Tell!

-Ow! Get off me, Jackie!

0:17:460:17:49

Can't I get any peace to be creative?

0:17:490:17:53

He's my brother, James! Now, get off!

0:17:550:17:59

And you're running away with him?

0:17:590:18:02

-Are you mad?

-You kept running away to your grandpa!

-That's different.

0:18:020:18:07

-I was never meant to be here in the first place.

-Nobody is.

0:18:070:18:11

What do YOU know about running away?

0:18:110:18:14

What kind of hiding place is the summer house?

0:18:140:18:18

Magic wand - make Teddy go!

0:18:190:18:23

Hi, Cam.

0:18:240:18:26

-I wrote my story down for you.

-Justine phoned you about the book.

0:18:260:18:32

It's about a beautiful girl trapped in a care home doing all the work.

0:18:320:18:37

And a prince rescues her?

0:18:370:18:39

Don't be wet! A family fostered her and saw her hidden talents.

0:18:390:18:45

They sent her to university.

0:18:450:18:47

They tested her brains. The results were amazing.

0:18:470:18:51

She went on to be a famous vet.

0:18:510:18:53

-Put my name above yours on the cover.

-Yeah.

0:19:040:19:08

I know! Why don't I disappear?

0:19:110:19:14

Writer of book, here!

0:19:150:19:18

Abracadabra, writer disappear!

0:19:180:19:21

JACKIE SCREAMS

0:19:210:19:24

JACKIE COUGHS

0:19:250:19:28

-I swallowed a fly. All better now.

-Sure?

0:19:280:19:31

-Who are you?

-Never mind that now. Come on!

0:19:360:19:39

Here's the famous author!

0:19:470:19:49

I'm going off the whole idea.

0:19:490:19:52

-Hi! I've written a story for your book.

-It's me who's...

0:19:520:19:57

It's about this Dumping Ground girl, who everyone fights with.

0:19:570:20:01

She has lovely hair, unlike that grub who says she isn't pretty...

0:20:010:20:06

-This duckling grows up to be a swan?

-No. She gets her own back.

0:20:070:20:12

Have you thought about making it a recipe book?

0:20:280:20:32

Caring Meals For Kids - recipes by Duke.

0:20:320:20:36

-Thought you'd turn up here sooner or later!

-Who's she?

-Who told you?

0:20:410:20:46

Jackie, Jackie - you can't keep anything from the Beaker!

0:20:460:20:50

So you plan to take Michael to live happily ever after with you,

0:20:500:20:55

-don't you?

-I'm on the road - I can't take a little kid with me!

0:20:550:21:00

-You weren't going to tell him!

-You haven't thought this through.

0:21:000:21:05

-Where do you think they'll look for you?

-I needn't listen to this!

0:21:050:21:10

You do if you want us to help you.

0:21:100:21:12

-Why would you help?

-You may be big, but you're still a kid in care.

0:21:120:21:17

-DOOR OPENS

-Tracy knows.

0:21:260:21:30

-You may as well announce it on TV!

-Look, there's a problem.

0:21:320:21:36

-Your brother's sorry, but he can't take you with him.

-You're lying.

0:21:360:21:41

-He doesn't know how he's going to live.

-We'll manage.

-You won't.

0:21:410:21:46

-James'll look after me.

-He can't even look after himself.

-It's true.

0:21:460:21:52

-He can't take you with him.

-Get out!

0:21:520:21:55

You should stop him before he gets in trouble.

0:21:550:21:58

I hate you both! Tell him I don't want to see him again!

0:21:580:22:02

Well, um, that went well, I suppose.

0:22:050:22:08

Yeah, you've been a great help(!)

0:22:080:22:11

-If you're writing a story for my book...

-No way!

-Too much like work.

0:22:160:22:20

Thank goodness. I'm getting so...

0:22:200:22:23

But you can interview us about how bad life is here.

0:22:230:22:27

I'd like you to put in action - a car chase, an explosion or two.

0:22:270:22:32

-Sign here.

-What?

0:22:330:22:35

In exchange for our ideas, you'll give us half the profits.

0:22:350:22:41

I don't think you'll find a better offer.

0:22:410:22:43

It'll be a bestseller. People love books about suffering.

0:22:430:22:48

MOBILE RINGS Who's that?

0:22:520:22:55

-Our social worker.

-What's she doing here?

0:22:550:22:58

-Your social worker must've rung her. Go.

-Tell Michael I'm sorry.

0:22:580:23:04

Tell him yourself.

0:23:040:23:07

You have to go back to the halfway house.

0:23:100:23:13

Here's my pocket money. I've been saving up for months.

0:23:140:23:19

Give them back what you stole and say sorry. They'll understand.

0:23:190:23:23

-You'll have to get a job and save up and...

-Got it all worked out?

0:23:230:23:29

-I'll blab on you.

-He's the biggest blab in the Dumping Ground.

-Jackie!

0:23:290:23:34

-Jackie, Tracy, Michael! >

-Go! We'll keep Elaine busy!

0:23:340:23:39

OK, boss, but I will be back for you one day. I promise.

0:23:410:23:46

You better.

0:23:460:23:49

Let me past - I've important business!

0:24:070:24:10

But, Elaine, um, me and Jackie wanted a little chat with you.

0:24:100:24:16

I didn't come for a chat - I came here to see... Cam!

0:24:160:24:20

I heard about your book.

0:24:200:24:22

Cam!

0:24:230:24:25

-What's going on?

-She doesn't know!

0:24:260:24:29

Come on.

0:24:310:24:33

I've boxes of case histories and I can easily go and fetch them...

0:24:350:24:39

I just did some illustrations for your book.

0:24:390:24:43

Now, would everyone just stop giving me stuff for my book, OK?

0:24:450:24:50

-It's MY book!

-Oh, I forgot.

0:24:510:24:54

I mean, I forgot to tell you I decided

0:24:540:24:58

not to pester you with my stories.

0:24:580:25:00

Look, I just want to write a little book about normal people.

0:25:000:25:05

What - and no suffering?

0:25:050:25:08

No explosions, no skulls,

0:25:080:25:11

no horror, no adventures, definitely no fairy stories!

0:25:110:25:16

-Just my own little book about the Dumping Ground.

-Like I said,

0:25:160:25:20

-why? Nothing happens.

-She's right.

0:25:200:25:23

-It should be a cook book.

-Oh...!

0:25:230:25:26

# I can make my world come true All my dreams will see me through

0:25:330:25:38

-# And the fight won't get me down

-No, no

0:25:380:25:41

# My dreams will turn things All around

0:25:410:25:44

# With a smile upon my face I can see a better place

0:25:440:25:49

-# It doesn't matter What may come my way...

-No, no! #
