-Gus, I'm going to...
-Is the cab booked for 12?
-Yes, but Gina...
-How much will it cost?
-It's on account.
-Is it a people carrier?
-I expect so, I don't...
-What's the driver's name?
Why d'you need to know that? Never mind. Gus...
-Tracy's taking you.
-Gina's taking me.
Gina WAS taking you. Tracy IS taking you.
Everything else is exactly the same.
Just Tracy, instead of Gina.
Hey! Gang, break it up. I told you...
I don't want to make a big deal out of this. It really won't help.
-I just want to say hello!
Let her in the door first! Come on, guys.
CAR HORN BEEPS
Hi... Just you?
-Hi, I'm Tracy. I work here.
-Hello, Rob. Lily's social worker.
-She's come back to stay for a while.
-What? Without Rosie and Poppy?
Hi, Lily, nice to see you. Would you like to go and get settled in?
Lily! I've missed you so much.
Come on, let's go upstairs.
-How's Poppy and Rosie?
-What is going on?
-I'll tell you
as soon as possible. Let's get the paperwork done.
Oh, Tracy, I'll need Gina here in case Lily needs her.
So you're taking Gus to his audition.
Let him know that you're here, so he doesn't get too stressed.
-Sure. What time's the audition?
Cab picks him up at 12.
That's over two hours away!
Oh... it's Gus.
It'll be fun sharing rooms again.
-Do you want to unpack things?
-Here, I'll help her.
-Right. There you go, Lily.
All clean and fresh.
Hi, Lily. I just wanted to say...
Sorry you had to come back.
Right. I'll leave you to get settled, yeah?
Come on, you.
You can have whatever bed you like.
You can have this one if you want.
I mean, it's not like you need to be near the door
to hear Poppy and Rosie, so...
Lily, I said you can have whatever bed you want.
I didn't mean to upset you.
It's not fair! It's not fair!
Well, we can change the beds around.
It's not the bed. I want Poppy and Rosie back.
I don't know how you could do this to her. It's like she's in shock.
-I haven't done anything to Lily.
-You took her away from her sisters.
Tracy, Rob wouldn't have done it unless it was absolutely necessary.
It can't be right to split up a family.
It isn't. And we hardly ever do it. But Lily left us with no choice.
There was a breakdown between her and the foster parents.
She wouldn't let them look after Poppy and Rosie. The girls got upset
because they didn't know who was in charge.
-You could have worked something out.
-Don't you think I tried?
We thought it'd be best to have Lily here for a while
without having to take care of Poppy and Rosie.
Let her enjoy being a kid again.
I'm late for my next call, and I've got another four to do after that.
So Lily will be going back?
Once she's learnt she doesn't always have to be in charge,
-we'll reassess the situation.
-Don't forget, she's been mothering her sisters for years now.
It could be months before Lily's ready to accept
a new authority figure.
Oh, thank you. Can you just give them a quick wash?
She's kind of a bit shell-shocked, but she's with Carmen.
We'll have to find something to distract her.
What about a pet?
No, lots of care homes have them now.
I'm not crazy about this place being over-run by animals.
Like we're not already!
Tee? Tee! Look at that...
You mustn't give up, Lily.
You've got to be strong for Rosie and Poppy.
Do you know why you've been sent back here?
Cos Matt and Christie, my fo...
my EX-foster parents...
said I had to let them be in charge of Rosie and Poppy.
-But they're your sisters!
-That's what I said!
Hi, Gus. Where you going with all that?
To my orchestra audition at 12:45. You said you'd booked the cab.
The cab is booked. What I meant was, why d'you need a duvet?
-In case I get cold.
If I get cold, my fingers go stiff and I can't play.
And why the torch?
-In case there's a power cut and I can't see my music.
In case your piano stool's too low?
And it's a phone book which is very handy for ringing an electrician
when there's a power cut.
I've got my torch.
Yes, course you have.
I think I might have a way to get you back with your foster parents.
-Well, you're going to have to work hard at it,
but I reckon we can make it work.
You want one of these?
Where you going to...? Oh, cool.
And how you going to...?
You've got it snap-wrapped, Tee. What d'you want me for?
I don't quite look 18.
Now, all these dolls live together.
And the Lily doll looked after the Rosie and Poppy dolls.
Until the foster parents started interfering.
Maybe they weren't interfering.
Maybe there's another way of looking at it.
The mummy and daddy bears invited the dolls to live in their house,
-cos they wanted to look after them.
-That was nice of them.
Yes, it was, Carmen. And how do you think the dolls felt about it?
-They wanted to look after themselves.
-Really? All of them?
-Or just one of them?
-All of them. They didn't need the stupid bears.
-How do you think those bears feel now?
-Don't know. Don't care.
-How would you like
to be chucked up against a wall?
Stop talking about bears and dolls! I know how they felt.
They got upset when I wouldn't let them look after Poppy and Rosie.
And how did Rosie and Poppy feel?
They got upset, too. They didn't like me fighting with Matt and Christie.
I bet you didn't like it either. Everyone was unhappy, right?
OK, see you then. Bye.
I can't wait to meet Baaronica the First!
That's a bit of a mouthful. What are you going to call her for short?
-That is short.
Baaronica Bellony Bibbibulous Sapphybum the First.
In honour of you getting her for me.
Cheers... I think.
I have to stop fighting with Matt and Christie, don't I?
-If you want to go back.
-And let them be in charge of Poppy and Rosie?
But I've always looked after them.
And you always will, Lily, cos you're their sister.
But you don't have to be their mum as well any more.
It's OK to let Matt and Christie look after them.
It's about time you enjoyed being one of the girls.
Now everyone's happy again.
-We will be.
I can do it.
Keep the sock.
Tracy, can you double check I've got everything I need?
-Soon as I've spoken to Mike.
The cab will be here in 13 minutes.
And I need to have my "just in case".
We've got loads of time.
You could do a "just in case" when we get to the school.
That would be an audition "just in case"
-and I need a travel "just in case".
-How many do you have in a day?
-Seven, normally. But today's 11.
-11! Why do you need to go 11 times?
-Just in case!
Yep, fine. Everything's there.
Going to ask about the torch? Or the duvet?
Nope. If you want it, it can come. Thought you wanted a "just in case"?
Go and get the ball, Harry.
Can I touch it?
She's not an it. She's a she.
-What's her name?
-Baaronica Bellony Bibbibulous Sapphybum the First.
Tee! That's a virus factory on legs.
Ever heard of blue tongue or foot and mouth?
-We got a full medical history, she's fine.
-It's Mrs Sheep.
That's not her name. It's...
-I don't care. You can't have a sheep.
No-one's going to want to foster us if we come with farmyard animals!
-Except a farmer.
-Or a vet.
-Or a butcher.
Look, I'm keeping her!
I've been working with her all morning.
I swear Lily gets the giving up control idea.
She's only been back a couple of hours.
It'll be weeks, more like months,
before she's ready to go back to Matt and Christie.
She's ready now, I promise.
They can't have explained it properly to her before.
-I'm sure they did.
-Bet they didn't, otherwise she'd have got it.
She'd still be there rather than upstairs, broken hearted,
because she's missing Rosie and Poppy.
-It's not that simple.
-But it could be! If we can sort it out
before Rob writes up his report and puts it in the system.
Otherwise that could take months.
The longer Lily's away from her sisters, the worse it'll get.
-Please, call Rob.
It's too soon to ask him to contact the foster parents.
You'd better go.
I'll be right there.
Could you help Gus take his things out to the car?
No-one said you were moving house.
-Don't touch my stuff!
-Gus, let him help.
We'll be able to leave faster.
Where are you going? The cab's down here.
Got this new top. My favourite colour. What do you think?
Quick! Come with me.
-Back to your sisters.
But... what about my things?
We'll sort that out later. We've got to leave now.
She's only just got here!
Carmen, you can't tell anyone where we've gone. OK?
-Thank you. Come on.
Right, have you got everything you need, Gus?
Yeah, good. Well, listen...
no matter how it goes today, we're all really, really proud of you.
So we wish you luck.
And just really, really do your best.
I have 40 minutes until my audition.
Well, you've got plenty of time. Hey, you!
-Do you know where you're going?
-It's very important, can't be late.
Lily wanted to come along for the ride.
-I thought it'd do her some good.
-Good idea. Have some fun, Lily.
-See you, Tracy.
-Why's Lily coming with us?
-She hasn't got an audition.
-We're going to make a stop on the way.
I don't want to make a quick stop on the way. I have 39 minutes
-and 30 seconds till my audition.
-I need only five of them.
-We'll get there in plenty of time, I promise.
-Are we going, or not?
Yep, we're going.
Listen to this. A one-year-old sheep's called a hogget.
And a two-year-old's called a two-teeth.
They only have eight teeth in their whole life.
Don't ask me because I've promised not to tell.
OK. Sure. Whatever.
Oooh, sweet sheep. Whose is he?
He is a she. She's mine.
Lunch in 20 minutes and do not forget to wash your hands.
-What is that?
I meant what's it doing here, hmm?
You said it was OK to have pets.
-When you were in the kitchen with Mike.
No! I meant little, small, furry things that go in cages,
not a farmyard animal!
-Jeff likes Mrs Sheep.
-That's not her name.
I'm not interested what her name is because we're
not going to get acquainted.
Where did she come from?
Oh, I see. Well, wherever she came from, you can phone them
-and tell them to pick her up!
-No, Tee. Now get rid of her.
Hi. Um, I'm Tracy. I work at Elm Tree House.
-Oh, yes. Hello.
-I completely get why you sent Lily back,
but I've got her to understand where she went wrong with you.
This really isn't appropriate.
Honestly. Lily's really sorry about the way she behaved.
Please. Give her another chance.
You'll see a whole new side to her, I promise.
Does Rob know about this?
-You really need to talk to Rob.
-I know you're trying to help.
But Poppy and Rosie have been upset enough already. Sorry.
Come on, Christie, or we'll start without you!
Start the car.
Wait. Lily, come with me.
We have 23 minutes till my audition. We have to leave!
You'll get to your audition, Gus. I promise. We'll be right back.
How long is "right"?!
Right, Lily. This is your big chance. Now, say sorry.
Remember, Matt and Christie are in charge, OK?
Sorry, I know what you said, but I had to show you.
Lily's learned her lesson.
Let her prove it and keep the family together.
My wife told you this wasn't...
Lily, have you got something to say to Matt and Christie?
Yeah, Poppy doesn't like tuna.
-You don't have to eat it if you don't want to, Poppy.
-She likes it.
Why did you give her tuna? I've told you she doesn't like it!
-You've made her cry. Leave her alone!
-Lily, stop it!
-Get out. Now!
-I'm so, so, sorry.
-No! Come back! Rosie! Poppy!
-No! Lily! Let go!
-Too noisy! Too noisy!
-I don't want to go!
I've got to be at the airport in an hour.
I should never have brought you here. I'm sorry.
-13 minutes and 45 seconds!!
-We'll make it to your audition.
-Is it the music school or not?
-Gus, it's all right.
Can we go now, please?
Only 13 minutes and 45 seconds...
You've done a great job.
-I wish Lily could see her.
But don't ask me where she's gone.
Because Tracy made me promise not to tell.
All right. Where has Lily gone?
-What have you done to her, Tee?!
Just making her look nice.
This is a live animal.
You should treat her with respect, not like a toy.
It's quite hard having a pet, actually.
It's even harder trying to keep a secret.
-Gus, you leg it in while me and Lily grab the...
-But we're here.
-I'll make sure you're seen.
The longer we sit here arguing, the later you're going to be.
I'm not arguing. And we're not going.
Back to Elm Tree House, is it?
-Gus, you've worked really hard for this audition.
-Go and do it.
-Three minutes from the door to the loo.
Two minutes for my "just in case" and wash my hands.
Two minutes to the school hall.
And two minutes to position my piano stool and my music.
That's too many minutes!
-But I'll explain...
-I've missed my slot.
I can't cross it off my list. Everything's gone wrong. Everything!
-Can we just go...
-Back to Elm Tree House?
I'll never get to the airport at this rate.
-Will you tell Tee she can't keep that sheep?
-I've told her.
Don't worry, it's gone.
-Look, Tee was there when we were talking about a pet
for Lily, remember? Lunch!
But a sheep?
-I told her to take it outside.
-OK. Where was it?
Watching TV. Look, it's all right.
She's not going to get into trouble.
Told you, you couldn't have a sheep, Tee.
I haven't got her any more.
That was quick. How did you do it so fast?
We talking about Baaronica?
I told them she'd gone now.
Yeah. The man was still in the area, so he came to pick her up.
I thought you said lunch was ready? I'm starving.
Johnny, don't lay for Gus and Lily.
She went with Tracy to Gus's audition.
I thought it would do her good to get out.
She promised not to tell.
OK, if you're going to force me!
Tracy took Lily back to live with Poppy and Rosie.
Isn't that brilliant?
Where's the sheep?
No, we had no idea.
I just got the call from them now.
Right. When you get this message, call me straight back.
I know, but she's an idiot that meant well.
We're concerned about the girls too.
OK, Rob, see you when you get here. All right, bye.
So, how angry is he?
-OK. Stupid question.
-Poor Lily. She must be traumatised.
-Have you got my number for next time?
Mike, I'm really sorry.
Save it till Rob gets here.
And Poppy doesn't like tuna.
Well, maybe she didn't like it yesterday, but she likes it today.
You know what little ones are like for changing their minds, Lily.
And I shouted at Matt and Christie.
It's my fault Rosie and Poppy cried, isn't it?
No, it's a difficult situation,
and Tracy shouldn't have taken you there.
It's not her fault. She was only trying to be nice.
She won't get into trouble, will she?
What were you thinking? After everything I said this morning!
I know, I'm sorry.
I made a terrible mistake. I never should have taken Lily back.
Too right, you shouldn't. The damage you've done is unimaginable.
We know you were trying to help, but you've made the situation
-a lot worse.
-And all this will have to go on Lily's file.
And I'll have to put a disciplinary note on yours.
I'm really, really sorry, Gus.
I'll try to make it up to you.
-No, I will make it up to you.
They'll be other auditions.
In the future.
I had planned it all for today. I was ready today.
All you had to do was get me there on time.
-I like playing the piano,
and I think I'd like to be in an orchestra,
but it's too late now.
It's all too late.
Stings, doesn't it?
You think you're making things better,
but you're actually making them worse. I...
I had my own "Lily moment" when I was first starting out.
It's not just Lily, though.
There's Gus as well.
Sorry, I thought I heard a sheep.
-Forget it. There's nothing you can do about Lily apart from
apologise, which I hope you've done.
But come here. There is something you can do about Gus.
We're from the Junior Orchestra.
We're here to audition Gus Carmichael.
Thanks for trying.
THEY ALL APPLAUD
Encore! Come on, encore!
