-Blocking the toilets is not clever and it's not funny.
Since when it became my job to unblock it.
Do you want me to make it your job?
Because next time, I will.
Chillax, Tracy. I was bored and wanted a laugh.
We can't always get what we want.
So, has your story been rejected again?
What makes you say that?
Well, how many publishers is that now?
-I am totally over the moon for you, Justine!
-You're Justine Littlewood?
-Justine has done really well for herself.
She sells houses.
Where did you get the houses?
-Did you steal them, like you stole Tracy's room?
No, I don't steal houses. I'm an estate agent.
I work for Wolfman and Cronk. Have you heard of them?
Yeah, they're massive.
Well, last year I won their national sales award.
I was the youngest ever winner by ten years.
-Really? That's amazing.
Well, I thought you might want to see.
-Wow, that's one for the noticeboard. Can we keep these?
-Feels weird being back. Must be, like, five years.
You went to live with your dad in July 2006.
How do you know that?
-It says so on page 247.
-Tracy's written a book?
You can keep it.
We've got hundreds of copies.
Wow! An actual published book. How did you do it?
-She stole Cam's credit card and published it herself.
-It was a misunderstanding. I borrowed it.
Yeah, that was the misunderstanding.
Anyway, did you just come here to show off your scrapbook,
or did you actually want something?
-Tracy, Justine is our guest.
-That's all right.
Actually, I did want something.
-You're getting married?
-Yeah, next month.
And I was wondering if you'd give me away?
Justine! I'd love to!
-Well, you're like a dad to me.
-And have you spoken to your dad about this?
-Yeah, I asked him. He said no.
Please. It'd mean the world to me if you gave me away.
-I'm very flattered, Justine, and I'd be honoured.
-Oh, thank you!
-So, fallen out with your dad again?
-Well, you know how it is.
When was the last time you saw your mum?
If you're talking about Cam, we're still happy, thanks.
-I was talking about your real mum, actually.
-Cam is my real mum.
Tracy, why don't we make a drink for our guest?
Certainly. Would you like latte, cappuccino or vintage champagne?
Have you got any herbal teas?
Normal tea will be fine. Black, no sugar. I'm slimming for the wedding.
Check this out, guys. Look, here.
Nothing. Just hayfever.
You don't get hayfever.
I used to, when I was little. It must have come back.
Who does she think she is?
"I've won an award. I've got a big, fat diamond ring."
Mike's just lapping it up.
-I thought she didn't want sugar.
-I'll take it.
Yeah, so, Tracy left, and we had this big, emotional send-off,
and then, months later, she was back again. Thanks.
That happens in this place a lot.
If I remember rightly, you left and came back a few times, yourself.
Yeah, well, at least I didn't burn down my foster mum's kitchen.
-Did she do that?
-Yeah, Cam was livid. Didn't she write that in the book?
Cam's kitchen got burnt again last year.
Yeah, well, that wasn't my fault.
-That was the girls and their stupid facemasks.
KNOCK AT DOOR
-Good news. She's leaving.
ALL: Bye, Justine. See you tomorrow. Take care!
-What do you mean, see you tomorrow?
-For her engagement party.
It's not a party, it's just lunch.
Justine is bringing her fiance round to meet us all, that's all.
Well, shouldn't we check with the social workers first?
-Or at least do a CRB check?
-Tracy, we're talking about Justine.
-We know her.
Yeah, and she's got the most amazing clothes,
and a diamond the size of a baked bean.
-That's not very big.
-It is for a diamond.
Are you sure this is Justine Littlewood?
Yeah, but she's nothing like Tracy said she is.
You've so got to meet her.
Hmmm. I don't know, Harry. Who is this girl?
-She's Tracy's worst ever enemy.
-Oh! I'll be there.
She ruined my life when I was a kid,
and now she's trying to all over again.
Don't let it get to you. I mean, things have changed.
You've both grown up, moved on.
Have I? I'm still stuck at the Dumping Ground.
No one'll publish my stories. I've got nothing to show for my life.
I haven't even got a boyf...
Justine Littlewood always has this way of making me feel worthless.
I get it. She's like your kryptonite.
Geeky, but true.
So, how does Supergirl deal with kryptonite?
Mostly, she just stays away from it.
Not possible. Justine's coming over for lunch tomorrow.
-Why don't you come, too?
I've got band rehearsal all day.
Please, Seth. I really need someone that's on my side.
No. That'll make me look like a kid who still needs their mum.
-I need someone cool.
-Do you want some more chicken?
-Yeah, why not, I'd love some.
-There you go, darling.
What did you marinate this in, by the way?
No, don't tell me, I'll guess.
Hey, that's right, yeah!
Charlie's a great cook. He used to own his own restaurant.
Well, it was more like a gastropub, but...
Yeah, but it's had some great reviews. He showed me.
Celebrities used to eat there and everything.
Seth's in a band.
-They won Best Newcomer at the Wrexham Festival.
Oh, I don't know...
You wouldn't have. It's an underground thing.
-It's had some pretty good bands.
Why don't you play some of your stuff?
Not right now!
So, what happened with your restaurant?
I had to give it up. Personal reasons.
His mum's not been well, and there's no-one else to look after her,
so Charlie gave up everything.
-Oh, that's so sweet!
-Well, it's the least I could do.
You know, family's really important to me.
Well, he cooks, he puts his family first. Where did you find this guy?
Well, that's a funny story.
I was sitting in the cafe, and I lost my purse.
I thought I'd been robbed.
I'd seen it just lying on the table, so I went to hand it in,
and that's when I've seen the most beautiful girl I've ever
seen in my life, and she's asking, "Has anybody handed in my purse?"
I was so relieved. I didn't think anyone
-so good-looking could be so honest.
-So I had to buy a coffee to say thank you.
-It was like fate.
We realised we had so much in common, didn't we?
We even like the same music.
What a coincidence.
So what do you do now that you're not running the restaurant?
Well, he can't work till his mum gets better,
and he won't sign on because he's too proud to take handouts.
I literally had to force him to take the money
to buy his mum a stair lift.
And that's a loan, by the way. That will be getting paid back!
It doesn't matter. We're getting married, so we'll share everything.
It's my mum. I'd better take it.
Don't be long.
Well, what do you think?
I'm glad to see you've found someone who's made you so happy.
Yeah, and he's well fit.
-What? He is!
-Oh, he's so lovely.
When he was talking about his mum I actually thought I was going to cry!
Yeah, me too(!)
Sorry, babe. I've just been dead busy.
Yeah, I'm having one of my bad days. Did you manage to get the cash?
Oh, you're amazing! You're amazing!
What, right now?
Well, I don't know whether I can leave mum.
No, no, don't do that, don't do that.
I'll get one of the neighbours to look in on her. OK.
See you in a bit.
Love you too. Mwah!
So, your turn.
What do you mean?
Well, how did you and Tracy get together?
Oh, they're not together.
Oh, my gosh! Did you two get together?
I don't know. It just, kind of, happened.
I can't believe you didn't tell us about this!
Well, I don't have to tell you everything, do I?
You know, it's funny. When Tracy was a kid, she used to lie a lot.
She'd say her mum was a big Hollywood star
and that she was going to live with her and be a star, too.
She was so convincing, I almost believed her. Almost.
I'd believe you. You're a star to me.
Some of us are trying to eat!
-Mum's had a fall.
-Is she OK?
-I think so, but I'm going to have to go round and see.
-Yeah, of course.
Look, take my car keys. I'll get a taxi home.
OK, thanks, babe. I'll see you later.
Right, that's it! I'm off to eat in the garden!
It was a pleasure meeting everyone,
and thank you for a fabulous lunch. Thank you.
-No, it was really nice to meet you too, Charlie.
Heard you on the phone.
-To my mum?
-That wasn't your mum. You probably don't even have a mum.
-And if you do, she's in on it as well.
-In on what?
I know what you're doing.
You tricked Justine into trusting you by nicking her purse
and giving it back to her.
What are you on about?
Then you told her a sob story so she'd give you her money.
Probably got a load of other girls on the go right now.
You've got a good imagination, mate.
No, I've got two parents in prison for fraud.
I know all about scamming.
What you did with the purse,
my dad used to call it the old rob on the turn.
Did I tell you what happens to grasses?
Don't worry, I'm not going to grass you up to Justine.
Don't even like her. But she's hurt someone I trust.
So, what do you want?
Nothing for myself, but this place could do with a new computer.
-You're having a laugh, aren't you?
I'll go and tell Justine what I heard.
So, there's a lot of money in selling houses, then?
There's a lot of money in selling anything, if you're good.
Thanks. And I'm good.
You must be. Are those shoes real?
They're real shoes, but if you're asking, they cost me £10.
Yeah. It's all about putting an outfit together.
We should go shopping sometime.
Can we? Like, now?
Er, I don't think so. You guys are on clean-up duty.
Tracy, come on. I think we can relax the rota for once.
-You'll be all right on your own.
-Er, what about you?
The girls need a chaperone!
-All right, then. So, who's coming shopping?
- Come on, you lot, come on.
-No, not my thing.
Oh, I'd love to!
All right, I'll call a cab.
Right. Come on, girls. Bye, Tracy. Come on!
This is going to be fun. We can get some of those necklaces.
Yeah, I'd love one like yours!
Tracy, you OK?
I have worked my bum off for the last three years
just to learn a little bit of trust and respect,
and all Justine has to do is show up and flash some cash,
and suddenly everyone's in love with her.
-In love? Like you and Seth?
-Oh, erm, yeah.
-Don't do that.
Touch your nose. It's a classic tell that you're lying.
-It's weird, but true.
-So I'm not even good at lying?
You're OK for an amateur, but I'm used to dealing with professionals.
Didn't expect to meet one in this place, though.
-What do you mean?
You and Seth weren't the biggest liars at that table today.
Why? Who else was lying? What do you know?
Oh, she's gone now, so you don't have to keep playing along.
So, this really was just about Justine Littlewood.
Yeah, I told you it was.
Yeah, but I thought, you know, with the whole fake boyfriend thing,
maybe you were trying to tell me something.
Tell you what?
I'll be honest with you, Tracy.
-I'm getting a bit old for these games.
-Call me, yeah?
No. You call me when you've worked out what you want.
Did Rick come out here?
I'm really sorry, Tracy.
It's OK. I just need to find Rick, that's all.
No, what you need is a shower.
-And a change of clothes.
Easy, easy. I'm sorry.
-All her clothes, are you joking?
-Check with Beaker, she dared me to.
-What's going on?
Justine's telling us about when she stole all of her careworker's
clothes whilst she was in the shower.
- What's all this?
Well, Justine's bought the girls a few bits and bobs.
Hey, do you want a cup of tea?
Oh, that'll be lovely.
-Good, because we need to talk about your wedding.
- Where's Tracy, because I want to show her my new clothes.
In the shower.
-Justine Littlewood, what have you done with my clothes?
You're a big, fat liar!
I can't believe it! You're all on her side!
KNOCK AT DOOR
Tracy, we're sorry. We meant it as a joke.
Yeah, we didn't think you'd mind.
Yeah, you're usually well up for a laugh.
You just got the wrong day, that's all.
-Did Justine buy you those?
Right, that's it.
I should probably get changed.
-This never happened. Well, it did, but not how she tells it.
-I want to discuss your relationship with young people.
You need to observe appropriate boundaries.
Get you, Careworker Beaker! What's twisting your knickers?
You. When some kids get expensive gifts,
it causes tension in the house, like when you got that TV, remember?
I remember everything. You seem to have forgotten.
And what's that supposed to mean?
Well, you make out I'm some kind of monster.
You never mention all the stuff you did to me.
Breaking my clock, forgetting to pass on messages from my dad,
making me nick Jenny's clothes, booby-trapping the kitchen.
That was a dare! We were playing a game, and I won.
-You know I did.
I don't know. What was the last dare, again?
To eat a worm, and I did it.
She says so on page 36.
Tracy says a lot of things.
So, is Tracy's book the truth, or is it all lies?
No. I promise you, I ate that worm. You believe me, right?
-Why would I lie about something like that?
-The usual reason.
You make yourself out to be a hero.
You hate to admit you're like everyone else.
Say what you like, Justine. You know I ate that worm.
Well, there's an easy way to prove it, isn't there?
She bottled it. I knew she would.
Now do you believe me?
I believed you all along. Just wanted to see you do it again.
She's going to be sick!
You ate a worm? Again?
-Wow, this is amazing! How could you afford it?
Oh, cool, it has a webcam and everything.
If you've done something dodgy to get this...
What do I care? I don't live here any more. Enjoy!
Can you play games on it?
Yeah, you can do what you want, because I got it for everyone.
So, it's going to be ivory, strapless,
with embroidery on the bodice and a full skirt.
You're going to look amazing.
-I wish I could be there.
-Why don't you come along?
Of course. Mike can bring you.
There's plenty of room for extra guests.
It's not like I'm overflowing with family.
So, why isn't your dad coming?
Because he's got a problem with Charlie.
Just because he doesn't like him,
he thinks it's OK to spoil my wedding day.
My mum's the same. It's always about what she wants.
So you know how it is.
With Charlie, it's finally nice to have someone looking out for me,
putting me first.
-All I've ever wanted was to be part of a normal family.
I know it seems mad, but sometimes I even miss this place.
Just being around people who know where you're coming from.
Have you ever thought about fostering?
You could have other people around you,
people who've been through the same thing you have.
Er, are you talking about you and me?
Kind of. Why, what do you think of that?
Well, I don't know. I just met you.
Yeah, but you could get to know me. It worked for Cam and Tracy.
It did, didn't it?
-All right, I'll talk to Charlie.
-You mean it? Promise?
-I promise I'll talk to him.
Justine, can I have a word? In private.
That's the most irresponsible thing I think I've ever heard!
Irresponsible? Coming from you?
You can do what you want to me, but I'm not letting you hurt them.
I'm not hurting anyone.
So you're thinking about fostering Carmen?
Like I said, I'll talk to Charlie.
If this is another way to score one over me...
You think I'd foster a kid to get at you?
Look, we both know you're not going to foster Carmen.
You're trying to get her hopes up so she likes you more than me.
Wow, you really haven't changed.
You still think the world revolves around you.
No, I don't.
Well, what's this? It's all me, me, me. Poor me.
When are you going to realise there's other people in the world?
-Give it back.
-Justine, give it back!
Give me the book back!
-Right, that is it!
Ow! Get off my hair!
No, it looks rubbish anyway!
You'll ruin it!
Stop it! Can you two stop it?
Look, I was just trying to protect you.
Protect me from getting fostered?
Justine hasn't thought this through properly.
You only met her yesterday.
You said you knew Cam could foster you from the day you met!
-That was different.
I don't know. We had a connection.
So have we! From the moment I met Justine and Charlie,
I knew they could be my foster parents.
They're a great couple.
This is my big chance, Tracy. Why are you trying to wreck it for me?
I'm sorry, Carmen,
but there's no way Justine and Charlie are going to foster you.
-And what would you know about it?
-Charlie's not who you think he is.
-He's a conman.
-So now you're using the kids to get at me.
-No, this has nothing to do with me, honestly.
It's a trick my parents used to do.
Charlie'll get a woman to trust him and then borrow money.
-Probably buys those fake diamond rings in bulk.
-He's talking rubbish.
-Are you being serious?
-I heard him on the phone to another woman.
-Yeah, his mum.
-Definitely not his mum.
Why didn't you tell us?
Did he threaten you?
Oh, my gosh. He bought you that computer, didn't he?
-Charlie bought you this?
-So I wouldn't grass him up.
This is pathetic. You two are making this up to make me look stupid.
Think about it, Justine. You've known me for ever.
Why would I lie about this?
Well, why not? I've heard you lie a million times.
And you always knew, didn't you?
Do you think I'm lying now?
I'm going to need to see some proof.
KNOCK AT DOOR
-What do you want?
-To say sorry about you and Justine not working out.
You don't know that yet. You might have got it wrong.
Charlie might be OK.
Don't get your hopes up, Carmen.
Go on, then. Say sorry.
-Sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you.
-So, are we friends?
-I thought you didn't want to be friends.
I was wrong.
-Friends are good.
-Yeah, they are.
What are you doing here?
I wanted to come and see the band tonight. Is that a problem?
Of course not.
I'm sorry for having a go at you.
You were upfront about what you wanted from me,
and I hoped for something a bit more.
But that's not your fault.
Yeah, it is.
I don't think I've been very fair on you, ever.
You were right. I just needed to work out what I wanted.
-You're not going to make me say it, are you?
I just keep expecting a bunch of young people to jump out
and tell me this is all a wind-up.
No wind-up. Just you and me. Promise.
So, just to be clear, we're doing this to help Justine Littlewood?
And to show that cheating liar up for what he really is.
Well, I'm glad to see you've finally managed to put the past behind you.
I still can't stand her, but no-one messes with the Dumping Grounders.
Yeah, I'm with the salesman now.
The stairlift we've been looking at, he said it's not suitable.
He said we need a more expensive model.
I know, its heart-rending, isn't it?
OK, I'm going to have to go because the salesman's waiting, OK?
Love you. Yep, love you too. Bye.
I'll just check for you.
Excuse me? I think you may have dropped that.
Oh, thank you! How did I manage to lose that?
-I can be such a flake sometimes!
-Don't worry about it.
I'm always losing stuff.
But not everyone would have been as honest as you've been.
-Can I buy you a copy a coffee?
-No, seriously, it's fine.
Actually, no, let me buy you a coffee.
That would make me very happy.
And what would your girlfriend have to say about that?
-Well, luckily for you, I don't have a girlfriend.
-Is that right, Charlie?
-Justine! I was...
-Don't bother. I had to see it for myself.
-You set me up.
-I can't believe I was so stupid.
I actually thought we had something special.
Here, have this back.
-So, what happened, then?
-His mum was in on it as well, you know.
Apparently they made enough money to buy 20 stairlifts.
He called me after you left the cafe.
He went to the bank and paid it all back.
Guess he was scared I'd go to the police.
Or maybe he felt bad about it.
-Have you spoken to your father?
I'm going to meet up with him this weekend.
So at least one good thing came out of this, yeah?
Well, it's not the only thing.
-Yeah, go on.
I shouldn't have made promises I couldn't keep.
It was just bad timing, that's all.
I'm sure one day you're going to make a great foster mum.
I just wasn't the one. Not this time.
I can't believe you're handling this so well.
We're tough in this place, you should know that.
And like Tracy said, Dumping Ground kids can cope with anything.
-Never tell anyone I said this.
Tracy Beaker's right.
-I'll see you soon, yeah?
-You're always welcome.
-Drop in any time you fancy.
-Bye, Justine. See you.
-So, is this it, or will we see you again?
-I don't know.
This place brings back so many memories.
Tell me about it.
You know, I couldn't do what you do, Tracy.
-Look, I know you think I'm a failure.
-Seriously, why do you think that?
-Well, look at everything you've got.
I mean, the job and the award and stuff.
I make good money. Your job changes lives.
You're doing OK, Beaker.
