You'll get it soon.
-I'll get it.
-Come on, Carmen.
-Take your time.
-It's only my shoe.
GROWLING CONTINUES, CARMEN SCREAMS
Are you positive you... Ow! ..saw something, Carmen?
It was a monster. With big teeth and fur and red eyes.
-It was horrible.
-Well, there's nothing here now, so...
That's the fruit cake I baked last week.
You all said you'd eaten it all.
We... didn't want to hurt your feelings.
So you chucked it into a bush?!
That's the last time I bake you lot anything.
Well, it solves the mystery.
The cake obviously attracted some animals. A fox or badger?
No, no, it was much bigger.
And foxes can't throw balls. I think we should take another look around.
Tracy... Go home and do the coursework you said you would.
Come on, excitement's over.
Where are you lot going?
Don't you want to find out what it was?
-Come on, come on!
You promised me a new phone!
You can have a new phone, just not the expensive one you wanted.
I should get it as compensation.
Harry dropped it, not me. Right, Harry?
-How long do you think I've been doing this job?
I don't know, a hundred years(?)
Long enough to know the...
"break something old to get something new" trick.
I lent him the phone out of the kindness of my heart.
Are you saying I told him to drop it just to get an NX15?
Harry, who were you calling?
Good news, there is no monster.
I HATE living in this place!
Least, not in the garden...
ROCK MUSIC PLAYS
He's STILL on that game?
Liam said he could be beat my high score.
I said if he did, he could have my guitar.
Liam said, "Challenge accepted."
That was three days, five hours...
..and a bit ago.
-That's it! That's what I saw.
-You saw a werewolf?
-Werewolves don't exist. Do they?
There've been legends about them for centuries, but they usually appear
at night, when there's a full moon.
There's a full moon out tonight. But werewolves don't exist.
They do because I saw one.
We need proof.
And how are we going to get that?
-Sorry I messed up your phone trick.
-Not your fault.
We're a team, remember?
I'll just have to save up the extra cash. Night.
Can't you stay?
In case the monster comes?
Don't listen to them. There's no such thing as monsters.
OK, we'll take it in turns to keep watch.
If anything sees anything, one shines the torch
and the other takes the photo.
-No, you budge up!
HE ROARS AND LAUGHS
Get lost, Johnny.
I want to see the werewolf, too.
There's no room.
I've brought crisps and...
Toby, I think it's back.
There's a werewolf outside.
# Aah-ooh! Werewolves of London
# Aah-ooh! # CARMEN SCREAMS
Mike's been outside for 12 minutes and 16 seconds.
Maybe the werewolf ate him?
DOOR CREAKS OPEN
-Did you see it?
-Had it transformed back into human form?
There is something outside -
I saw it! I definitely saw it.
Huh? And what about the rest of the night watch?
We kind of fell asleep.
Come on, off to bed now!
I did see it!
Riff, what are you doing here?
Needed to talk to you.
In a werewolf mask?
-You weren't answering your phone.
I ran away.
You can't let anyone see me or they'll send me straight back.
You came all the way down from Manchester on your own?
Got the bus. Three actually.
Don't get out too much, do you?
I scared some girl off with the mask.
They came looking for me
but you weren't with them.
CLATTERING AND BANGING
It's here, Lily!
Some of the biscuits have gone missing. Explain that to me.
Well, Dr Van Helsing, I think you'll find that werewolves
are not renowned for their love of biscuits.
Mice, on the other hand, are. And we don't want any of those, do we?
Actually, Van Helsing hunted vampires, not werewolves.
Not with biscuits he didn't.
You slept well then.
All that snoring. It was like listening to a jumbo jet taking off.
I do not need to take this verbal abuse. I'm eating this in my room!
-Hey, lighten up.
-I do NOT snore!
LIAM AND FRANK HOWL
Remember that time when Dad made us pancakes?
-Set the flat on fire?
-That's something I'd rather forget,
-thank you very much.
-Mum screaming her head off.
Dad just stood there,
-cool as you like.
-Yeah, off his face on something.
You said not to worry, you'd look after me. And you did.
Till they split up.
Don't think about it, Riff.
So, what's going on?
-Why did you run away?
-Mum's got done.
Selling stolen goods. They said she might be going to prison.
Which means I'll end up in a care home.
So, you travel halfway across the country to another one.
-Great thinking, genius(!)
-It's just for a few days. Until I find Dad.
-Tell me you're not serious.
-Why wouldn't I be?
If he really cared about you, he'd keep in touch, tell you where he was!
How can he? Roadies are always travelling.
Touring with different bands.
-He sent me a card for my last birthday.
The mask too. It's original, worn by the leading guitarist
-of The Wolves.
-Oh, so you mean he didn't have to pay for it.
-Can I have his number?
-Not from me, the one I have has been disconnected.
But you know where he is?
-Touring with some crusty old band, I think.
-What's their name?
Not a clue. Metal Bird or something.
-Can't I hide out here, till I find him?
-You are joking.
-You can't hide a bag of crisps here, let alone a human being.
See what I mean?
ROCK MUSIC PLAYS
Woo-hoo! Beat that!
The king at his best.
Green, red, yellow, blue. Green, blue, yellow, red.
Green, blue, yellow, green, blue.
Yellow. Watch this! Green, yellow, red, red, red!
How does he do it?
He's not supposed to be here so you can't tell anyone you've seen him.
It's our secret, OK? Shhh!
-He talks to his giraffe?!
-He's a kid. Like you.
Which is why you're going back home.
-Look, whatever your mum's done, I'm sure she's worried sick.
I can't go back. If I do, I'll end up in a place like this.
You don't have a choice, Riff.
Yes, I have.
-Who's that boy?
-I saw you with him. He was in front.
-Yeah, that'll be the ghost.
-Yeah, some kid who died here.
Hey, no running down the stairs!
-I'll do it later.
-Do what later? Carmen!
No running down the stairs.
Did you see that ghost?
Whoever that is, can they throw me over the carrots, please?
Did you hear what I said?
Are these carrots?
Stop it, Riff. Just stop!
Look, is it really that bad at home?
She's always crying and I can't stop her.
I don't want to be there the day when they take her away.
I'll end up living with strangers.
what if I let you stay here till we figure something out?
-Just phone your mum. Tell her you're safe, OK?
How come you've got an NX15?
Your mum, right?
Leave a message.
Hi, Mum, it's me.
I'm fine, with Sapph. Laters.
-Let's get you back inside before anyone sees you.
Carmen thought you were a werewolf.
Now, listen, Riff is stopping for the day but no-one else can know.
Not Mike, not Gina, or any of the other brats.
What, not even Carmen? She saw him first.
Especially not Carmen. She can't keep secrets.
Yes, she can.
OK, maybe she can't.
-What's in it for us?
-I give you this.
An MP3 player!
You can plug it into the computer.
No big deal. Mum's got a box of them at home.
You know the difference between carrots and potatoes, don't you?
No. But I do know what you call an angry pea.
-Ha ha, very good.
-I'll get you Tee Taylor!
No running. What have you done?!
Give me a hand down here, girls. Girls?
ROCK MUSIC PLAYS
You've got Guitar Master? Cool!
-Mike wants you in the kitchen.
Erm, because he thinks you're the best.
Lily hurt her bad ankle.
-Can't we come in?
That was cool! We should do that again.
Are you mad? You're not leaving this room for the rest of the day.
Unless it's to wash. You stink.
Where are your spare clothes? Your toothbrush and stuff?
But you remembered this?
If I do go back
and Dad finds out how hard I've tried to find him,
do you think he'll stay in touch more?
Only if you stop stinking so bad.
Look, I'll go and find you some clean clothes in the laundry.
KNOCK ON DOOR
-Um, who is it?
I suppose you think you're clever.
Who told you?
Who do you think?
Fancy telling her a lot of nonsense about ghosts,
especially after all the werewolf business!
-I did see a boy.
If she has nightmares, I am going to be blaming you.
And do you know what, open your window, it's a bit stuffy in here.
That's not me!
What are you doing with my clothes?
Do you promise not to blab?
As long as you do my washing and ironing for the next month.
He is going to wash before he puts them on, isn't he?
-Come on, you've been ages in there.
-Come back later. Toby's in there.
No, I'm not.
-Must be Gus.
-I need my just in case.
I mean Johnny.
So thought I'd just pop in, say hi.
See how you're all coping without me.
Have you finished your college coursework?
-These qualifications are important.
I'll bury my face in paperwork.
Don't blame me if there's a problem and I'm not around to solve it.
-Oh, look Mike!
The place is still standing.
Everything is normal.
We don't have a problem that only Tracy can solve.
What are we going to do?
Just so you know, since none of you believe anything I say,
I'm going to lock myself in my room and not come out until I'm 16.
Hope that makes you happy. Goodbye.
Is she still on about that monster?
No. It's a ghost now.
Tracy! Finish your coursework.
Blue, blue, red, yellow, blue, red, blue.
Green, yellow, red, blue, green.
-Get ready to hand over your crown, Gus.
I don't have a crown.
Check it out! You'll never beat my score.
What's so good about this stupid game anyway?
Guitar Master is awesome. Mum got me two copies of it for Christmas.
You get to play loads of songs by REAL bands.
Look! The Clash, The Beatles.
Wait, scroll back!
-Gold Bird! That's who Dad's touring with.
So, what does this ghost look like?
He had blonde hair, a bag on his back.
Sapphire said he died here.
And nobody else saw him? What about Tee and Lily?
They're too busy listening to their new music player.
What new music player?
MUSIC ON MP3 PLAYER
Where did you get that from?
BOTH: We found it in the garden.
Not like Johnny to leave his ironing!
Oh, Sapphire said she'd do it.
Boys, have you seen any strangers, a kid with blonde hair?
Talk to the hand cos Liam's not listening.
Gold Bird are playing in Dover tonight.
-That's where Dad'll be.
-You can't go to Dover.
I got here, didn't I?
KNOCK AT THE DOOR You know the drill.
I thought it was your day off.
Got bored. Just thought I'd pop in to say hi.
-You know, see if you've seen any ghosts?
A kid with blonde hair, possibly goes by the name of Riff.
At least, I think that was the name someone stupidly entered
into the high score table.
Of all the things that you have done in the past,
this one tops the lot!
You should have called us.
Riff is a runaway. People will be missing him.
You're lucky the police hadn't already been called.
Well, that's his mum for you.
-I tried to call her.
-And we'll keep trying.
In the meantime, we'll contact Social Services up there
-and get someone down to fetch you.
-Now that you know he's here,
-why send him straight back?
-it's just the way things work.
-Then change how things work!
Why are adults so stupid?
This is all your fault!
If you hadn't stuck your nose in
these two wouldn't even know he'd been here.
Now I've spent the last five minutes trying to figure out
what's been going on here, I'd better get back to my college work.
-Where's the nearest bus stop?
You don't think I'm going to hang around here?
Wait for them to cart me off to some other Dumping Ground?
I'm off to Dover to find our dad.
You can't go off on your own, it's dangerous!
So come with me then.
Why not? You hate this place.
Always being told what to do. We could be together again. WITH Dad!
Just come to keep me company.
Only to make sure you get there safe.
Where are we going?
I'm going to take Riff to see our dad. But you can't tell anyone, OK?
When will you come back?
-I don't know, Harry.
-But you said we were a team.
We are. But Riff's my brother.
I wish I'd worn a warmer jacket.
It keeps your head warm.
No thanks, I'll pass.
I used to dream of running away.
Finding my mum.
The cheapest way always by bus.
The 26. Stops at the coach station.
Don't you ever get tired of poking your nose in?
Er, no, not really.
So, you've come to drag us back?
What's the point? If you're that desperate to run away
-you'll keep trying, won't you?
-Why are you here?
I just want you to realise that the Dumping Ground's not that bad.
OK, so it's noisy and you never get five minutes to yourself
and Mike seems to make all the food taste like cabbage.
-But it does have some good things going for it.
Well, it's warmer than being out here and all your friends are there.
-They're not my friends.
-That's why they kept Riff a secret, was it?
-Cos they don't care about you?
-I can't go back.
-I've got Riff to look after.
-And I'll never live in a home.
Not even if you have friends there?
Then you wouldn't have to worry about your mum.
She wouldn't have to worry about you.
Me and Sapph, we're family.
We should be together.
There's this thing old people call nostalgia.
It's when you remember the past and want things to be like that again.
But sometimes we remember wrong.
We only remember the good things, not the bad.
Look, I know things are changing for you,
like they changed when our parents split.
But it won't be that bad.
they're sort of OK.
You never heard me say that.
If you really want to find Dad, I'll go with you.
But don't expect it to end well.
He's not that much of a father and that's a fact.
But it's up to you.
Some things you've got to find out for yourself.
Number 26 bus, right on cue.
Don't worry, she'll come back.
You know she will, yeah.
So, come on, chin up!
Ah, go on!
-Promise you won't run away again?
-I said so, didn't I?
Yeah, but what if you hate living in your own Dumping Ground?
Ring me if you need to talk.
Don't thank me. I've got two more at home.
I've decided to come down for my breakfast since nobody bothered
to bring it up for me.
