THEY ALL CHATTER
What are you doing?
Making a tower. What's it look like?
-You don't expect us to eat this rubbish, do you?
They keep giving us these horrible cheap beans.
-And they're past their sell-by date.
Only by a few days. We've got to save money.
-We had no takeaways...
-I couldn't go swimming!
-And no electrical time.
-OK, OK, I know it's a bit rubbish.
They cancelled my piano lessons!
I always have piano lessons on Wednesday!
If I don't have piano lessons, then Wednesday won't work!
Look me in the eye, Tracy Beaker...
and tell me this is fair.
Council stopped paying for Gus's piano lessons three months ago.
So who's been paying?
We can't afford to do it any more.
You shouldn't have to pay in the first place.
Tell the council we've cut everything we can, we're done.
They can't chuck everyone out in the street.
They're shutting us down
and moving everyone somewhere cheaper. Burnywood.
-They can't do that!
-This is our home.
-That's why we need to make these cuts work.
No, don't get sucked in. If they want to shut us down, they will.
-Doesn't matter how much money we save.
-Sapph, come back.
I've done a stretch in Burnywood. I'm not going back.
Then help us make it cheaper here, and you won't need to.
Neither will anyone else.
Everyone, let's show these council muppets
how to run this place on the cheap.
Sell the best on the net, I'll shift the rest.
Found more games to sell. Here, Harry.
-That was Jeff's fault.
-I can get £20 for the sofa.
-How do you know?
That's what that dodgy clearance man offered me last time.
Turn off these lights, save electricity.
Get Johnny to take down the curtains, we'll shift them.
OK. I've gone through everything, and you can have this...
-Carmen, we need to make money.
-I need to see two full bin bags.
-Give me attitude, it's double!
What are you doing?
Oh. I thought if we put these on our feet, we won't miss the carpet.
Good thinking, Tee.
-Well, at least she's trying!
-Oi! Hey, lads, where are you going with that?
-We're selling it.
-I don't need it any more.
-Ah, no, no, no. What are you doing?
-We're on a mission. No time for feelings.
-Frank, you can't...
# The best things in life are free
# But you can give them to the birds and bees
-# I need money
-That's what I want
-# That's what I want
-That's what I want
-# That's what I wa-a-a-nt
-That's what I want
-# That's what I want
-That's what I want. #
Can you try and cut a bit yourself? Good girl.
Then you can try your vegetables.
-Can I get down, please?
-Of course you can. Don't worry,
you'll get used to it when you're here every day.
-Matt and I think it's time you moved back in.
-You got rid of everything!
-Except the important things.
Don't thank me yet, there's more.
What are you doing?!
We present the results of our Saving Elm Tree House campaign!
Tee's moving in with me and Lily to save on heating.
What have you done with the carpet? Where are the curtains?
Ha ha...all in good time. Tee?
I made these, so we don't miss the carpets.
-We've worked out the savings.
saving heating, and sharing baths.
-No. There's no way I'm sharing a bath.
-Not all at the same time, just the water.
No, that's rank.
Talking! Adding the savings to the money Liam got
from the house clearance man...
-It's all about the contacts, Mike. Here.
Talking! Adding the costs to the savings means we'll each cost...
..£29.87 a week less.
-That matches the Burnywood prices, right?
-Shut up, shut up! Continue.
Right. We can see how hard you all worked, yeah?
Oh, spit it out, please...
Um... Look, there isn't a council in the country
that would let us run a home like this.
I'm really sorry, but you'll have to buy the whole lot back.
See, I told you it was a waste of time.
Let me remind Harry how much you helped
when they cart him off to Burnywood.
And the snorty old warthog roared at the three princesses.
They shivered and shook, and shot their magic powers...
-How's my favourite girls? Ready for a story?
Matt, Lily was just telling them one.
-I'm sorry, Lily. You carry on.
It's OK. I'm tired now anyway.
Katkins Kibble was in big trouble...
I'm sorry about that earlier.
Um...this is for you.
We were going to give it to you tomorrow, but have it now.
Matt made it, to go on your door when you move in.
You spelt Lily wrong.
Give it back, I'll...
-It's fine, I like it.
I like it.
You do want to move in, don't you?
Yeah, course I do.
I probably shouldn't have said in front of the girls,
it's just Matt and I had already spoken to your social worker.
-We thought you'd be pleased.
-I am. I promise.
Good night, then.
First place that's ever felt like home.
I never heard that.
What are we going to do?
I haven't got a plan B.
Neither have I, yet.
But I'm not giving up till we get to at least plan F.
Feels like they're trying to wipe out my past.
Isn't Burnywood the place where all your stuff got nicked?
Yeah, and my door was kicked in four times.
I was only there two weeks.
Typical. Uproot young people who are settled and happy
just cos it's cheaper somewhere else.
It stinks. I just wish I could do something about it.
It's hard to make a difference on your own.
What if I wasn't on my own?
If enough people kick up a fuss, it might force the council to stop.
"Persuade" is probably better than "force".
"Persuade" it is, then!
Come on, you're not going to get more for this rubbish.
-It's a bad idea.
-It's a great idea!
-It's the only idea we've got.
I'm writing an article.
The newspaper that offered me a job said they'd print it.
-That sounds like a "Tracy" plan to me.
-What exactly is a Tracy plan?
It's the only option we've got, Gina.
Do something crazy to make people listen.
That is a Tracy plan.
Tracy plans work!
Most of the time.
Let's do it.
I want no part of it. TRACY SIGHS
Are you sure you don't want me to come in with you?
Yeah. I'd rather tell Mike myself.
Lily, you'll never guess what.
They want to send us away, we had to sell everything,
then make girl and boy bedrooms,
and none of it worked so we had to buy it all back.
Basically, the council want to close us down
and send us to Burnywood.
-Come and give me a hand with these.
Did you have a good time with the girls?
Christie asked me to move in.
She's cleared it with Rob and everything.
Well, that's good news, hmm? Isn't it?
Well, they're really nice. And I'd rather be at theirs than Burnywood.
I dunno. I just feel like... I don't fit in.
Oh, Lily. You've waited so long
and worked so hard to be back with Poppy and Rosie.
You're bound to feel scared.
Hmm? But you know what, sometimes it's best to just jump in.
I'll miss you, you know.
POPPY AND ROSIE GIGGLE
Burnywood can't be that bad, can it? At least we'd all be together.
You'd hate it.
I heard they sit on your backs when you get into fights.
I heard they lock you in your bedroom all night.
What if they split us up?
We won't let them.
I'll persuade Cam to change her mind about fostering us.
Why don't you shut up about that? It's never going to happen.
This is real!
Right! Who's ready to go to war?
-You bet. Did they really think
they'd get away with dragging us out?
We'll tell the world about it. They won't know what's hit 'em.
Oh, me too.
Thought you didn't want to know?
Well, we've got nothing else on.
'There's a reason we call this a care home, and not a care house.
'We try to provide our young people
'with a proper, loving and stable place to live.
'Somewhere they feel safe and valued.
'Where the staff really care about them.
'And they can form real emotional ties.
'And just have fun, like real families do.
'Young people in care need to feel wanted,
'just like anybody else.
'They want to know their opinions matter.
'They like a challenge.
'Would you chuck your own children out on the street
'because you didn't think they were worth the money?
'I don't think so.
'That's what the council are threatening.
'And we're not going to take it. We're fighting back!'
Wow, that is genius!
Well done, guys.
You wouldn't let someone take me away if I didn't want to go, would you?
Hi, yeah. I just want to tip you off about an anti-council protest.
All right, Christie, see you later.
-Was that Christie Perry?
-Mm-hmm. I've asked her to come in
so we can sort out about Lily moving in.
Well, that's great news.
Um...the protest has just started.
Oh, come on.
At least come and have a look.
Ohhh... Right, come on, Mike.
Hey, Lily. That's fantastic news, Gina's just told me you're moving.
-You must be over the moon.
Can I stay? I'll sleep on the floor, unless you've got a big bed.
-Have you got your own room?
-I haven't decided if I'm going yet.
But you get to live with Poppy and Rosie!
-Well, you moving in with the Perrys
means there's one less spot open here.
That might be enough to keep Elm Tree open!
-I've got to tell the others.
-No, Carmen, don't, please!
It's all going to be all right! Lily's moving, it'll save us money.
-Carmen, shut up!
-This is great for you.
-It's not that simple.
-How much will it save?
-Stop it! I don't want to go.
THEY ALL SHOUT IN HORROR
Hey, hey, easy, guys!
-It's not up to you.
-Yeah? Well, you've got a home to go to.
We're losing ours and getting sent to prison.
-That's not fair, stop it.
-Why is Tracy up on the roof?
Save Elm Tree House! Don't let the council shut us down!
Don't let the council close us down!
Save our home! Stop the council from closing us down!
Tracy! Come down here!
-I want to get up there!
-You will stay exactly where you are!
Save Elm Tree House!
Don't let the council close us down!
Our young people add up to more than the bottom line on a budget sheet.
What is she doing?!
Save Elm Tree House!
Milking it. And it's working.
Don't let the council sell our young people out.
I am not shifting until they cancel the budget cuts.
-Don't let the council freeze us out!
Of all the stupid, irresponsible things you've done!
I mean, what kind of example do you think you're setting?
If we don't do something, we won't have anyone to set an example for.
-You being on the roof is not going to help!
SHE SOBS WHILE TRACY CONTINUES IN BACKGROUND
This latest round of cuts means that Elm Tree House will have to close.
The council has a duty of care...
Oh, hi, Christie. It's a bit crazy around here today.
Yeah, I can see that.
Mike, I can't bear the thought of Lily being in the middle of this.
Just give me a second, please, yeah?
Why don't I just take her home?
I'll bring her back when things have calmed down.
This ends now.
At last, someone from the council! Come with me.
I've got some people who would love to ask you a few questions
about the funding for Elm Tree House, yes?
No comment. Absolutely no comment.
I can come any time of the day, I don't mind.
And I don't mind sleeping on the floor.
You'd be very welcome, Carmen, but I'm just taking Lily today.
Lily! What's wrong?
Tracy, help me!
What are you doing? Go back inside!
-Christie's here. She wants me to live with them.
-She's come to take me away.
-Are you sure?
Look, let's just go back inside and we can talk about it.
No. No, you promised. You promised you wouldn't let her take me.
And she won't! Please, Lily, let's just go back inside.
Please! It's not safe out here!
Lily! Please, get back in off the roof!
No-one will listen to me.
Talk to me.
I keep getting things wrong.
I don't belong there.
Lily, please! Lily, get off the roof now!
I'm scared I'll ruin things for Poppy and Rosie.
Come back! Go back inside!
It's just moving too fast for you, Lily, that's all.
We can help that, we can slow things right down.
Lily, look at me.
Everyone is on your side. We're here to help.
Now, let's go back inside, OK?
It's OK. She'll be fine.
Shall I go with her?
I think you've done enough already.
It wasn't your fault.
-Leave us alone!
Erm, guys, listen up, please.
I'll take it from here, thanks, Mr Milligan.
I'm Leanne Spinks. I've been sent by the council.
We're launching a full investigation into how this accident happened.
Whilst that's in progress, Elm Tree House will be closed,
and you will all be placed elsewhere.
THEY ALL SHOUT ANGRILY
The decision has been taken. And it's final.
-So when do we have to go?
-Your social workers are on their way.
Their friend might die, and now you go and take their home away too.
-Mike, do something.
-I'm sorry, Tee.
Mr Milligan no longer works here.
Pending the outcome of our investigation.
Look, it was my idea to do the protest.
I organised everything, I got the TV people.
You must be very proud.
Look, if anyone's going to get sacked, it should be me.
Frankly, you're probably right.
But unfortunately for Mr Milligan, it doesn't work that way.
But it wasn't Mike's fault!
What happened was my responsibility, all right?
Let's just let the process take its course. Hmm?
The first of the social workers is here.
I'm so sorry.
Oh, come in.
-Where is everyone?
-Well, they're not in here.
You think that's going to work?
You got any better ideas?
No. Then shut up.
We're going to stay down here until they agree to keep this place open.
Or they break the door down and drag us all out.
I'd like to see 'em try.
I won't let anyone drag me.
Good. We'll have to force them to talk.
She'll be OK.
HE KNOCKS ON DOOR
Come on, Liam. Open up.
Open this door.
-You going to keep Elm Tree open?
-You know we can't do that.
-Well, go find someone who can.
They'll come out when they're hungry.
You may have time on your hands, Mr Milligan,
but some of us have got work to do.
Er, don't talk to him like that.
Ten more minutes, and then I'm calling the police.
HE KNOCKS POWERFULLY
No. Do it yourself.
They won't listen to me!
Well, do you blame them?
-Look, they need your help.
-No, no, you mean YOU need my help.
Sapphire, this is going to end badly.
And whose fault is that?!
Don't make this any harder than it already is.
Er, there'll be no need for that.
I'll get them out.
Liam. Open the door. It's me.
She's going to call the police. We can't win this one.
We can try.
Look, they're going to shut us down,
and there's nothing we can do to stop it.
So you can either be dragged out of here, kicking and...
They'll be the ones doing the screaming.
Or we control how it happens,
so we can go out of here with a bit of dignity,
with our heads held high.
Because I don't know about you,
but I want to show them that they don't own me,
even though they think they do.

# Do-do do-do-do do-do-do

# Do-do do-do-do do-do-do

You're OK, that's all that matters.
I didn't know what else to do.
I hope nobody got in trouble.
Nobody got in trouble. Everything's fine.
CAR HORN BLARES
POLICE SIREN WAILS
Let me help you sit.
-Are you OK?
We've done it! The protest worked.
What? Let me see.
They've re-opened Elm Tree House?
Better than that. They've re-opened it AND cancelled the budget cuts.
Tracy, that's fantastic! Oh, well done!
Kiddie like that jumping off the roof.
You here, were you?
She didn't jump off the roof. She fell.
It's not what it said in the papers, mind.
-Well, you shouldn't believe what you read.
But she was up on the roof, though, wasn't she?
That's a terrible thing.
Kids like that running wild?
Er, our young people do not "run wild."
They are decent, respectful, and...
All right, Gina?
Who's your boyfriend?
Look at the mess.
You should have seen it before I tidied up.
Well, how did you get in?
Secret VIP entrance.
The boys' bathroom might need a little bit of TLC,
and you might want to re-stock the freezer.
Right, this is all coming out of your allowance.
Now go and get your clothes and get dressed.
I'm calling the police.
What? That's not fair!
Just to say that you're OK.
Hi! Oh, hey, babes!
-Hello! Carmen, what's happened to your eye?
-What happened, babes?
-No, she says she's fine.
They put us in Burnywood.
Ouch. I thought my week on the run was rough.
She had all her stuff nicked.
Don't worry, you can have some of mine. I'll help you choose.
Heard about what happened to Lily?
She's coming out of hospital today.
Two-storey drop. Only a couple of broken bones.
-Yeah, she'll have a couple more when I get hold of her.
Well, I'm sorry, it's her fault we ended up in Burnyhell.
Do you need any help?
Have you come to close us down again?
No, I'm just going to go in and see Gina.
-Is Mike still suspended?
-I'm afraid so.
Why are you afraid? Are you afraid he might...fall?
Erm, no, I just meant I'm sorry. Why would he fall?
-Cos you haven't taken him down yet.
-Taken him down from where?
Wherever you suspended him!
No, I haven't physically actually suspended him from anywhere.
-So why did you say you had?
Look, I'm sorry, I just need to go and see Gina.
You sure you don't need me to help carry anything?
I'll carry my own things.
See you again, yeah?
Hey, Gus. Welcome back.
Leanne Spinks hasn't come to close us down.
Come on through.
How can I help you?
I need a bit more information before I can finish my report for tomorrow.
Well, I've got to do Gus's paperwork first,
so there's coffee in the kitchen.
I've come to clear our my desk.
Not waiting for the outcome of tomorrow's hearing?
My union rep told me not to get my hopes up.
Harry! Hello, lad.
Jeff doesn't like you.
-Gina's free now.
HE TURNS TAP ON
Me being here, Mr Milligan - you know it's not personal, right?
Mike, I need to talk to you about...
Emma said we could stay, so you need to sort it out...
I think it would be more appropriate if Gina dealt with this.
-But it'll only take a few seconds.
-You're going to sort this out?
Emma phoned me at home this morning.
-We can go?!
-No, no, no.
She was concerned you'd got the wrong end of the stick.
But she said we could stay.
No, she didn't.
She said she'd always be happy to have you back when necessary.
-It's not the same thing, is it?
-They liked us, though.
We've been here before.
You and Tee WILL be fostered.
It's just not going to happen with an emergency placement, OK? Yeah?
DOG BARKS, CAT MIAOWS
Make me a cup of tea, yeah?
Oh, nice to see you too(!)
You heard the good news?
It's kind of obvious, isn't it?
The budget cuts have gone too.
You spoken to Mike?
I'll, um, tell him that we're here.
A disciplinary hearing?
I thought everything was back to normal.
You caused chaos in the council, and an unexpected council tax rise.
-That's not normal.
-Kept this place open.
AND put one of your residents in hospital.
You're looking for someone to blame and it's Mike?
Tracy, you are NOT helping.
-Nothing's decided until after the hearing.
-We've been here before.
Let's just let the process take its course, hm?
I'm sorry they sent you to Burnywood.
Oh, no, no. You mean you're sorry YOU sent her there.
-It wasn't Lily's fault.
-How do you figure that out?
It's ALL her fault.
Is that what YOU think?
Now look what you've done.
LILY SOBS Aww, she's upset(!)
Is that because all her stuff got nicked
and when she asked for it back, she got beaten up?
No, wait. That wasn't you, Lily. That was Carmen!
I never cried! You don't let them see you cry, do you, Sapph?
Well, I think you'll be glad to hear that I'm not coming back here.
I'm not really bothered.
That'll be nice for Poppy and Rosie, won't it?
I'm not going to the Perrys'.
Cam's fostering me.
You've thieved that foster placement from me and Tee!
-You had a foster home to go to and you turned them down.
-You're stealing our place!
-Why does SHE get all the chances?
When's it going to be our turn?
-Don't you EVER hit me again...
-..or I'll get you!
-Ow! Get off!
Carmen... Carmen! Stop it.
Let go! Right!
-Stop it, you two.
-Hey, hey, hey.
-What is the matter?!
-Lily jumps off a roof and gets whatever she wants.
I've never done anything wrong, ever, and I get nothing!
Johnny, come back!
I want to go.
Johnny... Johnny, calm down. Come here!
Get off me!
-This isn't going to help.
-Get off me!
-This isn't helping.
What's going on?
Get off me!
Oh! I'm SO sorry.
-Right, get down now.
-Stop it, Johnny! Please!
-Have you got a tissue?
-OK, I'll get some tissue. Tissue...
I don't think anyone's OK, do you?
At least we're open.
What do you want, a gold star?
I'm nearly finished. How about you?
It's probably time you left.
I'm not going anywhere till the atmosphere calms down.
And you can stick that in your report.
How you doing?
Oh, what a horrible way to end my time at Elm Tree.
It's not the end, Mike.
Sometimes you have to know when it's time to move on.
Might be great to have a fresh set of eyes on this place.
Liam, we've got to do something
or Mike's going to lose his job tomorrow.
There ain't no "we". You got him into this mess, you get him out.
Why are you being like this?
I know loads of Mikes.
You get used to 'em, they leave, you get used to someone else.
You know if it was the other way round he'd fight for you.
Oh, like he did when they closed us down?
I'm proud of you - you didn't cry.
We need something to make Mike look good before Leanne goes.
We're not getting involved in another one of your plans, Tracy Beaker.
The last one got us sent to Burnyhell.
Well, you're here now, aren't you?
We're keeping out of trouble so we don't get sent back there again.
Yeah, I'm in. But what's the plan?
I can't get involved, not after what happened last time.
But Leanne's going soon.
-Just leave it to me.
-To do what?
I'll leave you to it.
We need something to make Mike look good in front of Leanne.
I'll do one of my "what Mike did right" lists.
I can't, Tee. I'm in trouble already.
You've got to. It was your fault Mike punched Leanne in the face.
You know Mike might have to leave.
OK, well, we think we've found a way to keep him.
-But we are going to need your...
Just packing up some of Lily's stuff.
Could do with a hand.
I'm sure she'd love to hear from you.
My phone got nicked at Burnywood.
Here's some of Tracy's things.
They might be a bit small for you,
but they'll do till we get your stuff brought over.
Do you want to use the phone?
Sort things out with Carmen?
Make sure she's all right?
I need to talk to you, Leanne Spinks.
-Can it wait?
-It might have to - I'm nipping to the loo.
I can walk and talk at the same time.
-I've made a list of what Mike Milligan did right.
He collected Liam from the police station four times.
I know. Maybe you could just wait for me downstairs.
I don't have to - I can keep on talking.
I'll just talk louder.
..and gave Carmen the extra 50p so she could buy the shirt.
You took five minutes 12 seconds.
-That's quite a long time.
-I wouldn't say long.
When Harry had a poorly tummy,
Mike slept in his room that night in case he was ill.
I haven't got a poorly tummy.
I'm...reading my list again.
Also, he rescued Mr Hamster out of the toilet.
-I really have to get back to work.
-This IS work.
You're writing a report about Elm Tree House
and it isn't Elm Tree House without Mike, so you have to listen.
I have four more things on my "what Mike did right" list...
-If it's just four then I'll listen.
..in book one.
Also, when Frank...
-Mike, Gina, help!
Jeff's stuck down a hole with Johnny.
OK, easy, Harry. Easy.
-OK, let's go and get him out, shall we?
-Just hold on a minute.
What were you doing down a hole?
Tee and Johnny wanted to make Mike look good.
-Go on, then.
-Oh, Harry, please!
It's just for a minute, then Mike will save you and he'll be a hero.
Harry, come back!
Come on! Stop messing about and get up.
I can't. I'm stuck.
MUSIC: "Stuck In The Middle With You" by Steelers Wheel
Oh, Johnny, you eejit!
I'll get you out of there now.
I'm going to reach down and try and pull you out, right?
-Walk up the wall, walk up the wall, all right?
Go. Give me your hand.
Come on! That's it.
Come on. Come on.
Keep Harry out of your stupid games next time, all right?!
'Now I have four things'
for my "people getting stuck" list.
Four? Who are they?
-Liam got stuck in the window, Tee got stuck up a tree...
-When did all this happen?
Gus, why don't you help Johnny get cleaned up?
You're not going to be too hard on him, are you?
I'm just going to deliver my report.
It's up to the disciplinary panel to make their decision.
Guess that's that, then.
-Don't give up yet, Mike.
-Come on, Gina.
I helped to organise a protest against the council,
a young person falls off our roof,
another gets trapped in a drain.
And apparently, a third's stuck up a tree.
Maybe Leanne saw some positive moments too.
Before or after I smacked her in the face?!
THEY CHUCKLE Mike, I don't know what to say.
Well, that's a first!
Don't worry, cos I do.
It's going to have to be "goodbye" to everyone.
Oh, I'm dreading it.
DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS
Frank! My main man, where you been?
-Is he better?
Where do I start?! It's all been kicking off today.
Jeff wants to go with you tomorrow.
Well, that's very kind of you, Jeff, but I don't think I could...
He's good luck.
Well, I feel lucky knowing that you and, er, Jeff
are thinking about me.
Thank you. Now, into bed, Jeff, please!
Sleep tight, right?
Night-night. Go on.
Yeah, I'm fine.
Just, er, you know...hay fever?
Yeah, I've used that one.
Look, I'm going now. I just wanted to wish you luck for tomorrow.
KNOCK ON DOOR
I'm going now. Do you want me to give Lily a message?
Yeah - bye-bye. There's the rest of her stuff.
Look, this is bound to be difficult for both of you.
What's difficult for her? She got a lovely new home,
you and Cam jumping up and down for her every time she wants something.
She's your best friend.
Was. People move on - that's what happens.
You sound like Sapphire.
Good! No-one steals her stuff or leaves without saying goodbye.
See you tomorrow.
-How's it going?
-I don't think I'm ever going to get used to it.
No, you're definitely getting better.
-Thanks for giving up your room.
(If you ever want to sneak out, watch the dodgy floorboard.)
Maybe you should give Carmen a ring in the morning.
She hates me. I wouldn't know what to say.
She doesn't hate you.
She's just had a really tough time
in a place where you get stamped on if you show your feelings.
She needs you.
She's just scared to say so.
When we're looking for someone to blame
it's usually the people we care the most about who get it in the neck.
Tracy was the same.
-Blamed me for everything.
Although to be fair, it WAS always your fault.
It's always you sticks up for mates.
I DO stick up for mates. Mike isn't a mate.
Well, if Mike isn't a mate, who is?
A mate is someone who you can rely on, no matter what.
Someone who'll be on your side.
Mike gets paid to be your mate.
No. He does that bit for free.
Listen, are we playing cards or having a girly gossip?
KNOCK ON DOOR
Nice kidney punch on Johnny.
-Did I get it right?
Got to let the bad stuff go, Carm.
I've had an idea!
I wonder how Mike's getting on.
His hearing doesn't start for another 15 minutes yet.
You know what, Tracy? Just leave that.
Liam, Harry and Frank haven't come down yet.
-They're not having breakfast. They're at the Town Hall.
Exactly what were you expecting to achieve
by allowing Miss Beaker to proceed with her protest?
I wanted to give our young people a chance to fight for their home.
Sometimes those in power forget
that the way we treat young people in care
affects them for the rest of their lives.
-You can't sack Mike!
-Elm Tree House won't be the same without him!
-We're begging you.
-This is not the time.
-Look at Harry - he's only little.
-I must insist you all leave now.
-I'm really sorry they interrupted.
-What they did was wrong, but it shows how everyone feels...
Mr Milligan's popularity is not in question here.
He's the best father figure they've ever had.
-The issue is one of indiscipline at Elm Tree House.
This is just another example of that.
Why don't you people ever listen?
-Pretending you know what's best. You ain't got a clue!
I'm so disappointed in you.
Did you imagine for one second that this was going to help?
Look, our apologies.
We won't make this any harder than it already is.
We'll be leaving. Come on.
Gerry, thanks for all you've done.
Thank you, bye.
Look...I'm sure you meant well but, please, just leave it.
I'll, er, leave you to it.
Did you forget something?
I thought Tracy took it all yesterday.
Carmen, you're my best mate and...
I hate it when we fight.
I've come to say sorry.
-What's SHE doing here?
-Yeah. SHE don't live here any more.
Yeah, but SHE is my best friend.
And I've had enough bad goodbyes and I'm not having another one.
And you WILL be nice to her, OK?!
Well, no arguments from me, little tiger.
Lily's staying for lunch.
I'm really sorry about Mike.
I hope I get to see him again.
I'm sure you'll all get a chance to say goodbye, yeah?
-What's she doing here?
You come to say goodbye?
Thanks to Leanne's report, the panel found in my favour!
I just told the truth.
I found a sensitive man who's firm when he needs to be
and always has the welfare of those in his care at heart.
That means we're all back together again.
ALL CHEER AND LAUGH
He never came back.
