Why can't we help choose the new head care worker?
It wouldn't be appropriate.
-Head office is sending us their top three candidates.
-What do they know?
We live here - we should have a say.
-What do you think, Mike?
-I'm staying out of this one, kids.
Look, you can greet the candidates and show them to the office.
Gee, thanks, Shelley. You're all heart.
CHILDREN CALL OUT TO EACH OTHER
-Crash, on your head.
-I don't believe you lot!
-Things are being turned upside down and you're playing!
-Crash is right.
Shelley's leaving, we're getting a new head care worker,
and no-one's even asked us how we feel about it!
What difference will it make? We're just care kids.
That attitude will land us another Elaine. Is that what you want?
-What do you suggest, Bob Geldof?
-I don't know,
that's why I'm talking to you guys.
I've got it.
We can put the candidates through the dumping ground test.
-Since when has there been a dumping ground test?
-There isn't one...yet.
-What do we want from our care worker?
-Who cares? They'll be rubbish.
Milly and I have got a fancy-dress party, and we haven't got any hats,
so they need to be able to make costume hats, good ones.
Must be creative.
Someone who could shoot some hoops might be good.
Number two - a sporty person.
That's good. Keep 'em coming.
Someone who knows cool things, like the name of Johnny Depp's wife!
Number three - popular knowledge.
-Well, I've got a good sense about people.
I can see auras sometimes. It's like a sixth sense.
Fair enough, they must be able to pass the Alice test.
Great. So we're gonna have some arty-farty, beefy know-it-all,
with a special aura. Sounds realistic(!)
ALL: Shut up, Roxy!
Well, hello there.
I'm Mr Willis. It's a pleasure to meet you.
-This way, please.
-My very own guides - splendid.
What a fascinating staircase. Great feature.
These old houses really do have it all, don't they? Fascinating stuff.
Oh, Mr Willis, come in.
Cheer up, mate. It might never happen.
You've not met Mr Willis.
I don't even know why Shelley wants to leave.
Um, number one - constant food fighting.
Number two - constant pranks. Number three... Need I go on?
You won't be laughing with some old dinosaur breathing down your neck!
Hopefully Duke'll be back by then, and he can do the dinosaur taming!
Mike, I think you need to accept that Duke's not coming back.
You're just like us.
You come in here thinking it's just for a few days,
but it turns into forever.
Well, better go and pick up Mr Fascinating.
Thanks very much.
Absolutely delightful to meet you.
Mr Willis, there are some fascinating, um, period features...
Would you like to see them?
-Oh, really? Yes, please, that would be...
Let's play the Weakest Care Worker.
WEAKEST LINK JINGLE
Mr Willis, we have certain standards here at the dumping ground.
And we all agree that our new head care worker must be creative.
-I don't understand.
-They have to be able to make things!
Things like fancy dress.
Here are your materials.
Marco and Milly need two costume hats.
You have five minutes.
Your time starts...now.
These are rubbish!
I tried my best.
You are the weakest care worker. ALL: Goodbye.
So, Alice, what did his aura tell you?
Was he a boring man, by any chance?
Wow, Roxy, did you sense it, too?
POP MUSIC ON RADIO
Well, thank you very much. I'll wait to hear from you.
-This way for the last part of the interview, please.
-No, I've just...
Oh. So, what's all this, then?
We expect our head care worker to know all kinds of cool stuff.
-So we have some questions to test you out on.
Well, that should be a doddle.
Used to have nightly quizzes in my last home.
The losing team did the dishes.
Ha-ha. Right. Ready when you are.
Your five minutes start...now!
-In The Simpsons, what's the name of the school principal?
-Who does David Beckham play for?
-What's the name of Gwyneth Paltrow's child?
-Strawberry, peach... Apple!
Mrs Hood, you scored full marks.
Of course I did.
Which means... you leave with nothing.
-Nobody likes a know-it-all.
-You are the weakest care worker.
So, Mystic Meg, what did you learn from your sixth sense this time?
Her aura was very clear. There was a lot to see.
It's not looking good. They've both been hopeless.
And these are the top three.
Chill, the next one's called Lucy. She might be what we're looking for.
Lucy's passed the costume challenge and survived the general knowledge,
but can she go all the way?
It all rests on this final ball.
Well, I've always said that nobody's perfect.
-There's only one person for the job.
-That's me, right? Glad you think so.
Mike, this is Lucy, our new head care worker. Well, hopefully.
Really? Nice to meet you.
I'd shake your hand, but...
You two should talk. After all, you could be working together. See you.
So the interview went well, then?
Oh, it's the perfect job for me.
-Have you worked in many care homes?
-No. I've just finished university.
Well, don't worry, you'll have plenty of support from me.
I doubt I'll need your help. You fix the bikes, I'll sort out the kids.
Time to reveal who you think is the strongest care worker...
Lucy's aura is really weird. I don't like her.
Don't be silly. Lucy will be great for us.
-I hate to say it, but Alice is right.
-What do you care?
She worked at my old care home, but if you don't want to hear...fine.
-I don't remember her.
-That's because she dyed her hair.
-Come on, Roxy, spill the beans.
-She left a boy in the attic
with no food or water.
He ended up eating his own pet gerbil.
-Fine, don't say I didn't warn you.
-I thought she'd be perfect.
-Typical, this is as good as it gets for us.
Mr Fascinating, an over-eager quiz captain
-and the Wicked Witch of the West.
-There's got to be someone else.
Lunch, 15 minutes.
And for dessert, there's ice cream!
Under our noses the whole time.
Lunch smells nice.
Thanks. What are you after?
-We just realised. You fix our bikes.
-Remember our birthdays.
And never lose your temper, no matter how many stunts we pull.
-You could run this place.
-Just doing my job.
No, you really could run this place.
Don't look so surprised.
-We're all agreed that you're the best man for the job.
I'm not so sure it's really me, though, is it?
-I can't believe I got my hopes up there.
-This really sucks.
Well...I've made a decision.
And I'm really going to miss you all,
but I have no doubt my replacement is going to do a great job.
So give a warm welcome to your new head care worker.
Well, if you want me, you've got me.
Roxy, there's one thing I don't understand.
Lucy said she'd just left university.
she can't have been at your old care home.
I know. I made it up, I didn't like the look of her either.
Don't look at me like that. It doesn't mean I like you.
