# I can make my world come true All my dreams will see me through
-# It doesn't matter What may come my way...
# Believe me now I will win some day. #
Argh-hhhh! Who's there?
Marco? Oh, it's the middle of the night!
Come quick! The aliens have landed!
-Marco's found aliens in the cupboard.
-Again? What happened? They got lost on their way to Venus?
They've gone, but they must be coming back.
They left their communication device behind.
Hi! I'm back! Did you miss me?
Meadowhurst Farm was fantastic.
I saw a lamb being born! Blood and everything.
-I've got something to tell you.
-Good morning, girls!
Come on, Hayley, get a move on.
Big day today, remember?
Mark and Helen will be here in a few hours!
You're going out with Mark and Helen?
I'm going to breakfast. You coming?
-Hi, everyone. What's happening? Did you miss me?
-How was Meadowhurst Farm?
-It was fantastic.
We had pancakes every day for breakfast.
Next time we can go together.
Think she's nervous. ..Oop, stop it, boys!
Come on! Come on, Marco. Come on, give. Give! Good boy, come on!
The people who are taking you out today are in my office! Get washed!
-Get in your basket!
I'll be in the garden later if you need to chat.
-This is Marco. That's enough barking, Marco, thank you.
He's very excited to meet you, as you can see...
-and very fond of animals. Do you have a dog?
-No. Martin's allergic.
-Thank you, Layla.
Don't worry, you can always go and visit.
Go and visit? What?
Hayley. Lucky girl.
If it all works out with her new family,
-she'll never have to eat my cooking again!
Well, she's leaving today.
Sorry, Layla, I thought she'd told you.
-She said she would do as soon as you got back.
-Well, she didn't!
Well done, Duke, my son, you made a real mess of that.
Thanks for telling me!
I really wanted to, but every time I tried, I just couldn't.
You'll always be my best friend.
Best friends don't have secrets.
I know. I'm sorry. I'm really going to miss you.
Mark and Helen are really nice.
They said you can visit, and I can come back here.
-Hayley, Mark and Helen are here!
-Hey, Batman. Lost the rest of your bat mates?
Want a hand down?
There are other things I could be doing.
If you hang upside down too long,
blood drains out of your feet into your brain, and your eyes pop out.
Yeah, could be very messy. Blood all over the place.
I was coming down anyway.
You all right, Layla?
Hayley told you she's leaving?
No! She didn't have the guts. I had to find out for myself.
-We've known hundreds of kids to get fostered, haven't we?
You'll be next, you watch.
Bet you a fiver.
When there's all those perfect Barbie doll kids out there?
Get lost! Families love little cute kids like you.
-It's ugly brutes like Bouncer no-one wants.
Hayley just got there first, that's all.
-Bad day, huh?
-No-one's ever gonna foster me, are they?
Course. Little kids like you are the first to be snapped up.
-Yeah, if you're cute like Hayley.
-But you're cute.
In your own way.
I'm never gonna get fostered.
I'm just too weird.
-You know what you have to do?
-Just be a muggle for a bit.
Someone ordinary. When you're fostered, you can do what you want.
-What's going on?
-Marco wants to be normal.
-Ha! Marco? Normal? Don't hold your breath!
Don't worry. We'll show her. Can't be that difficult.
Look, I need help. I've got six hours to make Marco normal.
-Many have tried and failed.
-A family are coming this afternoon.
If we can get rid of the nutty bits, they might take him out.
But it's the nutty bits that make Marco...Marco.
But Marco with nutty bits stays hanging from a tree all day!
Marco without nutty bits goes out with a nice normal family.
-What do you reckon, Crash? You in?
-Sure. Be a laugh.
It might be a big joke to you, but you're fostered.
-Exactly my point. If
-can get fostered, anyone can!
This is Marco we're talking about.
-What d'you like for breakfast?
-Corn flakes and cola or bread and gravy.
-From now on, it's toast and jam, OK?
-What's your favourite sport?
-Crown green bowling.
-Football from now on.
-David Beckham's your hero, OK?
-But Uri Geller's my hero.
-No, repeat after me - "David Beckham".
That's his hobbies and eating habits - now his clothes.
There is nothing wrong with my clothes!
-Hayley, time to go!
< Come on, Marco, she'll be leaving in a minute!
-When's she coming down?
-She's in there.
You'll be next, you watch.
I'm going to miss you, kidder!
You ever want peanut cookies, you know where I am.
-You haven't seen Layla, have you, Duke?
-I'm sure she won't be long.
-Maybe the toilet door's got stuck again?
Thanks, but I don't think she wants to be my friend any more.
Course she does. She'll write to you, I'm sure.
So, here it is - the big, wide world. Are you OK?
That's my girl! It might seem strange for the first few days,
-but give me a ring any time.
-Beat me with a stick - I'm on a roll!
I've even found the perfect family for Marco.
If they don't want him as soon as they see him, I'll eat my box file!
ALL: See you! Bye!
I forgot to give you this!
Come back and visit?
Course I will.
I thought you might like it. For when we're pop stars?
Don't forget me!
This way, Marco.
Remember. Nice and normal.
-Hello. My name's Marco Maloney.
-Have you done something to your hair?
Marco, meet the Boxers!
I like watching TV in the hope of seeing my hero, Derek Bebham.
That is, of course, after I've eaten my toast and jam.
Sorry to butt in, but life with us might be a bit spooky for you.
We like stay up all night looking for UFOs, eating crazy stuff.
My wife collects false teeth from the rich and famous.
These are from the first Dracula film.
Maybe you'd like a family that was a bit more...
-what's the word we don't use, Lotus-Flower?
Maybe you'd like a family that's a bit more...like that?
-I hate you! I hate you all!
-We were only trying to help!
How were we to know they'd just landed from Planet Zog?
Well, what did I say? Dare to be different.
For once, you might be right.
We tried your way, now it's time for the Beaker treatment.
Crash, come with me. Jackie, your recorder.
Bouncer, get Marco in his Sunday best.
-Yes, well, I do understand. Thank you.
MARCO PLAYS THE RECORDER Woa! Boy on the drive!
Not again, Marco!
Please excuse my friend here - he often goes off like this.
We try and tell him it's not real, but he doesn't listen.
Maybe there's more to this boy than meets the eye. What you doing, kid?
Communing with the snake spirits of Nefertiti.
Maybe you could be our sort of guy, after all.
I'm sorry, but I have a meeting with the Leprechauns.
Any time you want to join us flamenco dancing,
-you get your boss here to give us a ring.
-I will. Ole!
