A day at the beach!
-How can you not want to go?
-It's not for me. It's her.
-I keep telling you.
-This is a bus. I don't get bus-sick.
Get ready for a day to remember! And look what I've borrowed.
We'll make a movie when we get to the beach.
-Here we go!
-Please can we stay behind?
-It's still a no.
There won't be anyone to look after you.
-Tee's all right, aren't you?
-Hi ho and away we go!
RETCHING AND COUGHING
-It isn't that bad.
-There is sick everywhere.
You missed a bit!
It stinks! When it gets hot in here it's...
Is this a joke?
No...of course not.
What a great feeling. The whole day, stretching ahead of us. Ahem!
-Time to switch on my little friend here, methinks!
You men and gadgets.
What's wrong with a map?
Nothing. Except I wouldn't mind getting there this year.
Excuse me. The kids had scribbled over the other one.
-You gave up!
-Well, this time I won't.
Not now I've programmed my baby!
So let's leave it to the professional, shall we?
'Listen to what I say, fool! Turn right at the lights.'
It's stuck on that voice. You get used to it...
An on-line bookstore bought a load of my books!
-Don't act so surprised!
-Can they read?
Don't forget you owe Cameron money.
Well I'm rich until I tell Cam.
Are you sure you're OK?
Why was you sick? You weren't sick when we went to Fun World.
I don't know. It must be the seaside.
I was only little before so I don't remember. Do you remember?
You're probably just over-excited.
Looking good, Sapph!
Who's it for? Mr Crab?
What about Mr Fish?
-Grow up, boys.
I've done a checklist for everybody. Let's start with me. Me.
Check. Towel. Check.
Packed Lunch. Check.
Spade with loose handle.
Check! Oh no, it's stripey!
-They're not check either.
Mike, Liam's forgotten his trunks.
We can't turn back now. Never mind.
-You can go in in your underpants!
-Eh! Don't think so.
What's the matter?
We've all done it.
'Keep straight ahead.'
Let's do it.
-Is there enough air in our tyres?
"If the vehicle is fully laden, it is essential that the tyre
"pressure is increased as per the following chart..."
I'm sure it'll be fine, Gus.
LIVELY MUSIC PLAYS
I've got a great idea. Let's tell a story, we'll go round and each
say a couple of sentences and see where we get to. I'll start.
It called A Day At The Beach.
There is a group of kids that have set off for the beach in a bus.
Can I asked a question, it's about the tyre pressure?
A minibus with the correct tyre pressure is rolling down the street.
-Right, who wants to go first?
There was a girl on it and she wanted to go on the beach
-and make sandcastles covered in shells.
-Was she going to live there?
By herself, or was there other kids there too?
Yeah! There'd be... It would be...
-I don't know.
-There's a massive game of football going on in the sea!
This lad runs out, into the waves,
it's a one off header... Everybody goes mental.
Suddenly the boy realises he's got no trunks on...
Then a crab come along, hunting for winkles! Nip nip nip!
-All right! Time out from the story please.
-'Pay attention, fool!'
Fork right, one mile.
I need some new trunks, like now.
Mike? I really need the toilet?
Well, there's a service station coming up...
LAUGHING AND SHOUTING
-Do we need this for building a castle then?
Do you want to do some digging?
-Dig a great big hole?
-I don't know.
-I said no!
What's the matter with you? I'll get it for him anyway.
Ha! Look at your face!
# Row row row your boat
# Gently down the stream
# If you see a crocodile Don't forget to scream, aaah! #
Excuse me. Are you buying that?
-We're going to buy this instead though.
-But we'll have a look around first.
-In case the other ones are better.
Where are your parents? Well?
We don't know...
Come on, Tee, I think we'll have have this one.
Carmen, look at this.
CRASH! Now look what you've done!
Ha, ha! Look! Free sweets!
Stand back! Stand back!
-It was a joke.
-Give me those
-They're only helping.
-I don't need that kind of help.
Can I have those, please? Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Shame to waste this.
Come on, let's go.
Here's the scam. A car pulls up, we throw dirty water over it.
He has to pay for us to mop it off.
It is the oldest trick in the book, Don't worry. Here's one.
Hey, lads. How you doing?
Gus? What are you doing?
-I was checking the tyre. And all the air came out.
We can drive across to the service area and pump it up again.
-Driving on a flat tyre may severely damage the lining.
-We have a spare tyre though.
Hey. Don't tell the others.
-What is it?
I can't believe you're not excited about the seaside.
I am though!
I'm so excited.
-That's the problem!
I'm having too much fun!
What do you mean, too much fun?
-Did you pay for those?
-Yes! If you doubt it, why not take them off her.
-No need to be unpleasant!
Did you really pay?
Are you sure that's tight enough?
SNAPPING SOUNDS THEY LAUGH
We don't want the wheel to come off, do we?
No, we don't. Right then. Everybody in!
LAUGHTER AND CHATTING
Are you in charge of this... of these...?
-Yes. Is there a problem?
-Yes, there is.
First, this child attacks my confectionary display with
-an inflatable horse!
-It was an accident.
-Some of them took whatever they felt like!
Finally, a customer was assaulted by two yobbos armed with a mop...
A wet mop! And a bucket!
There are no 'yobbos' in our group.
Did you see the culprits?
-Not personally, no.
-These two lads were with us the whole time.
Come on. On you go.
None of our children would dream of behaving in that fashion.
We'll be on our way. Thank you very much.
-Frank. Liam. Got anything to say?
-We haven't done anything.
Listen here. Pull a stunt like that again and...and...
And you'll be going home.
-Exactly. That's it.
It won't be me you'll be apologising to if we have to turn back.
'Take the next right, fool!'
That can't be right.
Just relax... Take it easy and enjoy the ride.
-This looks familiar.
-We're on our way back to town!
-This is the A736 into town.
-We can get my trunks!
I might change my top?
I need the toilet.
There is no way we're going back to the house!
'Pay attention, fool.'
Listen up, everybody!
Someone has sabotaged the Sat Nav! It's been re-programmed to return.
Presumably when we were at the service station.
I'd like whoever is responsible to own up, now.
What are you looking at?
Mike, have you ever thought it could be broken?
Will you stop it? It has that stupid voice stuck on it.
-It's always been super-reliable.
Right. I might as well get my sunglasses.
Hey! And then we're off!
Mike? Um. Is it too late to go to the beach, now?
No! We're leaving!
I just thought now we'd come all the way back?
I've promised I'd get you all there.
And I will... Even though it's like pushing jelly up a hill.
-Why did you you bring the hamster?
-I couldn't just leave him behind.
-Someone has got to look after him.
How would you like it?
-Are we there yet?
-'Do as I say.
'Take the next left.'
Relax, I've re-set it.
Can I see the map, please?
I need it, Sweetheart, I just want to keep it with the, just in case.
There you go.
-I'll bury you with this.
Cos that's what you do on beaches.
And then the tide comes in...
-You did that on purpose!
-I feel sick!
-'Keep straight ahead!'
No! Not this time, my friend!
-Are you all right?
-I am now.
-Let's get a drink.
-Are we here?
-And my sisters are there?
Can we go stop off and pick them up?
Not really. Because they'll be doing different things, won't they?
-You only saw them a couple of days ago.
I know. But they'd love to go to the seaside!
Is that what you've been worrying about?
Yes! How can I enjoy myself if they're not?
But you were so excited earlier?
I know. Then when we were making up that story, I remembered them...
You'd be happy if you thought they were having a nice time.
-They'd love to hear about your day.
Lily. You deserve a nice time, too.
-Can I have a look?
Mike! That stupid thing...
-Do you know your sisters' number?
We're going to beach, the seaside.
Next right, fool!
-Gina, we're starving.
Maybe you shouldn't have eaten your lunch at breakfast.
So it serves you right.
-I ate mine.
-I've only got a packet of crisps left.
-Let's have 'em!
Can we stop?
Look, wait until we get there.
-And then... I'll buy everyone fish and chips.
-I don't like fish.
-Why are you getting it for me?
Because... Have a sausage.
-When we get there!
Let's stop now...
I don't think I can bear this! It's the same service station...
We came to hours ago?
-So this castle...
-Covered in shells.
-Will you live there on your own?
At first I thought my sisters might come...
But they still might.
Or they might just visit.
-But there's got to be a Fairy Queen.
-To do the cooking?
And the washing up.
Sorry, you can't come in.
-We're just closing.
-Oh, is it? I'm sorry I'm 'ridiculous' for
-protecting my premises from hoodlums!
-It's some kids having a day out.
We want a quick bite to eat, then we'll be on our way.
We're just hungry.
The first sign of trouble.
You have my word.
Watch out, go on!
Right. Listen. Ssshh!
No messing about, please.
OK. Who wants what? That was quick...
I've lost Mr Hamster.
What? Mr...? You brought the hamster?
I brought him in for a snack.
Give me strength.
He might be outside!
-That hamster is history.
-A hairy pancake.
-You'll have to leave him.
-This animal is not stopping me...
us from getting to the seaside! Not after I promised I'd get us there.
-Then I'll have to stay here.
-Me too! I can help...
-I promised I wouldn't leave him behind.
-We need to find Mr Hamster.
No-one gets left behind.
All right. Whatever it takes.
SHOUTS: Right, everybody, listen up!
-Free Sat Nav to whoever finds the hamster!
Catch our Hamster!
SHOUTING AND SCREAMING
# ..Is it a monster? Is it a monster?
# What's that coming over the hill?
# Is it a monster? Is it a monster...? #
NERVOUSLY: No, he was joking about the Sat Nav.
He's got my Sat Nav.
As quickly as you can.
Never come back here ever again... VOICE BREAKS
Just go now.
Well, now that the Sat Nav's gone we might actually get there!
Come on! Let's go and get our fish and chips.
I know magic castles don't exist?
-Or magic Fairy Queens?
There's a few of them, if you look carefully.
-Why haven't I seen one?
-Maybe you haven't looked hard enough.
I live with one, although she's in a very good disguise.
Right. Might as well fill up with petrol while we're here.
If all goes to plan, we'll arrive just in time for a late swim.
-Why can't the bus go on its own?
-Because this bus runs on petrol.
-But I filled it with diesel.
It was a mistake.
-But the sign says petrol only.
I know, Gus. That means this van is not going anywhere, guys.
MOANING AND SHOUTING
Kids, it's over.
Mike.. Mike! It's all right.
Look, there's nothing to be done.
I'm going to have to phone a tow truck to take us home.
CHATTING AND LAUGHING
Looking good! Looking good!
Hey, Mike. Remember Skegness in 2002?
Yeah. Being buried up to my neck in sand would be an improvement,
The journey's always the best bit.
Let's have a look.
Hang on. Hang on, Tracy, can you rewind that?
Let me see that.
Ah! So that's when the Sat Nav was re-set to take us home.
Johnny, did you give me the diesel pump on purpose?
Come here, you.
-Did you do it, then? On purpose?
-All right, Liam.
What about the Sat Nav? Was that you?
-I've never even seen the sea!
-You've got to tell us why, Johnny.
No he doesn't.
I'd forgotten, what happened because I was little. I remember now.
Johnny doesn't have to say why he doesn't like the sea and the sand.
-Yes, he does.
Nobody has to talk about bad stuff that's happened to them.
-It didn't happen to me. It's what
-did to someone else.
I buried Tee in the sand. For fun.
But the tide started to come in, really fast.
And I couldn't get her out.
You thought it was all a big game.
But Mum had gone off with her stupid boyfriend
and there was no-one to help us.
I thought you were going to drown. SOBS
You haven't been to the sea since, have you?
But we're safe now, aren't we?
So it would have been OK.
-It doesn't matter...
-Yeah, it does.
Tee's right. We would have been fine.
-I've taken everyone's best day away from them.
-Taking you back to Elm Tree House?
Actually, no - change of plan.
We want you to to tow us
to Sandiford Beach, please.
-How we pay for the mini-bus home is another matter.
-We could use my book money.
-It's OK, the magic Fairy Queen won't mind.
-Come on then.
LAUGHTER AND SHOUTING
It's not often you take 12 people, and a hamster,
and catch them happy in a single moment.
Mike was right. Days like this are about having memories to cherish.
And if anyone ever asks me the best seaside fish and chips
I ever ate were I'd say...
Did someone put vinegar on these?
