-We don't need a reputation for cheating!

-Who cheated?

-Jeremy!

-Stop! Vicki, stop!

0:00:030:00:07

Go on, soft lad. Give her a kiss.

0:00:070:00:10

-What do you want?!

-A confession!

0:00:100:00:12

I want to hear you say it!

0:00:120:00:14

Innocent until proven guilty. And you couldn't prove jack!

0:00:140:00:17

I didn't hit Vicki. She's telling the truth.

0:00:170:00:20

-How did she get the bruise, then?

-I hit it on a cupboard.

0:00:200:00:23

I've always found you very attractive.

0:00:230:00:26

-It's you who should be locked up.

-You'll pay for what you did.

0:00:270:00:31

'I've been working as a professional carer for five years...

0:00:470:00:51

'Three years...

0:00:510:00:54

'Two years...

0:00:540:00:56

'My last place of employment was an old people's home in Stockport...

0:00:560:01:01

'Was a care home for the elderly in Stockport.'

0:01:010:01:06

What sort of MS do you have? Benign MS?

0:01:120:01:18

Relapsing-remitting MS?

0:01:180:01:21

Secondary progressive MS? Or is it primary progressive MS?

0:01:220:01:30

DOORBELL RINGS

0:01:430:01:46

Hey, I've been practising me chords.

0:01:480:01:51

I'm beginning to sound a bit like Keith Richards. HE LAUGHS

0:01:510:01:55

-What you laughing at?

-Is that recording gear?

-Yup.

0:01:550:01:57

Our orchestra are recording a piece we've been working on for the parents' evening.

0:01:570:02:02

-I can give your orchestra some oomph if you want.

-Oh, yeah?

-Like chika-chika-wow-wow!

0:02:020:02:07

HE BEATBOXES

0:02:070:02:10

-No, thanks.

-But I can help! I was born to perform.

0:02:100:02:14

I am a prefect, you know?!

0:02:150:02:18

-What are you shouting about, Tariq?

-I just wanted to help, sir.

0:02:180:02:21

-They said I can't join the orchestra.

-Being able to play an instrument might help.

-And can you?

0:02:210:02:26

I do beats really good.

0:02:260:02:27

-Really well.

-Give us a go, please!

0:02:270:02:31

How is your percussion section, Mr Wilding?

0:02:310:02:35

-Adequate.

-Well, adequate's not good enough for my parents' evening!

0:02:350:02:39

Why don't you give Mr Siddiqui here a chance?

0:02:390:02:41

If his "beats" are half as good as he says they are, then it's a win-win, no?

0:02:410:02:46

There's no way we can have Tariq Siddiqui in our orchestra.

0:02:510:02:54

We're so up against it as it is. I haven't got time to muck about with new arrangements.

0:02:540:02:58

This is a troubled pupil showing a spark of interest in something for the first time.

0:02:580:03:02

-All I ask is that you don't write him off.

-I'm not writing him off. I'm just...

0:03:020:03:07

I'm sure a teacher of your quality can handle Tariq. Unless you want to tell me otherwise?

0:03:070:03:13

Brilliant.

0:03:190:03:21

-I've got relapsing-remitting MS.

-Right.

0:03:210:03:25

And, as I put in the advert, I need a night carer.

0:03:250:03:29

-You'd be free during the day.

-Sounds perfect.

0:03:290:03:32

-How long have you been a carer?

-Two years.

-OK.

0:03:320:03:36

-And your last place of work was the Chantry Hall Nursing Home.

-Yeah.

0:03:360:03:41

-I don't know it.

-It's a small home, but very...perky.

0:03:410:03:47

Not the old people. They're not perky, they're old. Obviously.

0:03:470:03:52

-Sorry. That came out a bit wrong.

-I know what you mean. Don't worry.

0:03:520:03:57

Some of the other nurses I interviewed

0:03:570:03:59

made me feel like a patient.

0:03:590:04:01

-They didn't quite get it. You seem different.

-Really?

0:04:010:04:05

-That's a good thing.

-Well, it sounds like you just need a bit of help.

0:04:050:04:09

Yes. That's it. Jodie, I want you to take the job.

0:04:090:04:15

We'll go on a trial basis, but I have to do this sooner or later.

0:04:150:04:19

Oh, God, you're kidding?!

0:04:190:04:22

Oh, sorry. Slightly too much. I'm giddy!

0:04:220:04:26

I'll give your referee a call later today, but I'm sure it'll be fine.

0:04:260:04:30

Yeah. I'm sure it will.

0:04:300:04:33

-Hello, gorgeous.

-Ha, what you doing?

0:04:410:04:45

-Finn, we can't. Not here.

-Why? No-one's looking.

0:04:450:04:48

-What have I said?

-Has he taken her back?

-Looks like it.

-What?!

0:04:480:04:53

Careful, Finn.

0:04:550:04:57

All right, mate. What, you two back together, then?

0:04:590:05:02

Yeah. Just a little blip, you know?

0:05:020:05:04

-Just didn't think you'd want to.

-It's me and Vick. Solid as a rock.

0:05:040:05:09

-Hold those.

-Are you still playing rugby tonight?

-I can't, mate.

0:05:090:05:14

-I'm cooking up a treat tonight.

-Have you lost your mind?!

-No.

-Finn.

0:05:140:05:17

Your girlfriend decked you one and you're cooking her a romantic meal?!

0:05:170:05:21

-She's taking you for a mug, Ro.

-No, she isn't!

-Are you sure, mate?

0:05:210:05:25

Mind that for us, yeah?

0:05:270:05:30

-Hiya! You're not going to believe it, I got the job!

-You're kidding!

0:05:380:05:43

It's a new start, Phee!

0:05:430:05:45

What are you doing? Oh, stop filming me!

0:05:470:05:53

-How come you've got a new phone?

-Ah, I've been saving up.

0:05:530:05:56

-Hold still, I've got to capture this moment in history.

-Nice.

0:05:560:06:01

-So what's your mum gonna say?

-Mum? Don't know.

0:06:030:06:06

-She probably won't notice.

-Course she will.

0:06:060:06:10

Yeah, maybe when she hasn't got a slave to boss around.

0:06:100:06:14

I could ask my dad if you could come stay with us.

0:06:140:06:17

Have you not been listening at all? I'm going to get paid.

0:06:170:06:21

Like, properly. This is my chance.

0:06:210:06:24

But there's just one thing.

0:06:260:06:28

I need you to be a reference for me.

0:06:280:06:30

What do you mean?

0:06:300:06:32

Mia's going to ring you, and I need you to pretend to be my old boss.

0:06:320:06:37

I'll put her number in your phone, so that you know when she rings.

0:06:370:06:40

-You're mad, you are. So what's his name, then?

-Mr Joe McGuiness.

-Oh.

0:06:400:06:46

-HE PUTS ON A POSH ACCENT

-Mr Joe McGuiness.

-Will you do it?

-All right, then.

0:06:460:06:50

-You're mint, you.

-So are you.

0:06:530:06:57

Hello, handsome.

0:06:580:07:00

Last time I saw you, you were wearing considerably less.

0:07:000:07:03

-Linda, probably not the best time to talk about it.

-Later, then?

0:07:030:07:06

-That's a nice tie. Trying to impress someone?

-Linda...

0:07:060:07:10

-Everything you say to me in this room is confidential.

-OK.

0:07:150:07:20

-Feeling all right?

-No, not really.

-OK.

0:07:200:07:25

Let's start by you telling me

0:07:250:07:27

a bit about how you'd been feeling in the lead-up.

0:07:270:07:30

-Just stressed, I suppose.

-But have you got people to talk to?

-No.

0:07:300:07:36

-Just Ronan.

-Have you ever had any counselling before?

0:07:360:07:40

-No. I didn't need it.

-Did you think Ronan deserved it?

0:07:400:07:44

What sort of a question is that?!

0:07:440:07:47

I'm just trying to establish the reason why you hit him.

0:07:470:07:50

Well, I don't know why I hit him! It just happened. I freaked out.

0:07:500:07:53

-I just keep getting more and more stressed.

-About what?

0:07:530:07:57

About everything! About failing at my work! Having no money!

0:07:570:08:01

-And Ronan...

-And if you were to fail at your work?

0:08:010:08:07

-What's the worst that could happen?

-I'm not going to fail.

0:08:070:08:11

-Why did I even think this was a good idea?

-Vicki.

0:08:110:08:16

-Finished your work for Mr Budgen, then?

-Yep. All done.

-Nice one, son.

0:08:170:08:21

Do you want me to have a look at it, before you hand it in?

0:08:210:08:24

-Thanks. But I'm happy with it.

-Come on, hand it over.

-No.

0:08:240:08:27

-It can't be that bad, you've worked all weekend on it.

-No, I haven't.

-Come on!

0:08:270:08:31

-Blimey.

-Yeah, all right!

0:08:400:08:43

I bet you're looking forward to parents' evening tonight, aren't you, Dad?

0:08:430:08:47

Look, it's going to be all right. Speak to you later.

0:08:490:08:53

Aw, I'm sorry, bro.

0:08:560:08:58

Oh, come on.

0:08:590:09:00

What is the point of parents' evening, eh? We dread it.

0:09:000:09:04

The kids dread it. The parents dread it.

0:09:040:09:07

It's just one great big ball of dread.

0:09:070:09:10

Have you ever thought about being a motivational speaker?

0:09:100:09:13

-Hello, everyone! Isn't it a beautiful day?

-Oh, you look nice.

0:09:130:09:17

-Someone's dressed to impress tonight.

-Mmm, maybe?

0:09:170:09:20

-Either that or someone had a very good weekend?

-Morning, all!

-Morning.

0:09:200:09:25

All right, all right. I know, parents' evening can seem like a challenge after a long day at work.

0:09:250:09:31

But don't forget you've all got a lot to be proud of.

0:09:310:09:34

I know how hard you've all worked at this and I'm pleased, OK?

0:09:340:09:38

The kids' grades are starting to come through and they're very good.

0:09:380:09:41

Some of you still haven't inputted your grades into the system, mentioning no names, Grantly.

0:09:410:09:46

-Morning.

-If I could have them by the morning break, please?

-Come on, help Sian out here.

0:09:460:09:51

-She's got a particularly busy day ahead.

-Well, I'll help.

0:09:510:09:54

It'd be great to have an extra pair of eyes

0:09:540:09:56

-when the outstanding grades come in.

-Consider it done.

-Thank you, you're a lifesaver.

0:09:560:10:01

Um, well, I've got to see Vicki Macdonald.

0:10:010:10:03

-But could you swing by my office in about half an hour?

-Sure. Good luck.

-Thank you.

0:10:030:10:08

-Sian.

-What?

-What are Zack's grades looking like?

0:10:100:10:15

Not great, but we are still waiting on some subjects.

0:10:150:10:18

-Look, darling, is there anything that you could do?

-I'm sorry?

0:10:180:10:23

You know, like with his science grades, you know, maybe bump it up a little bit?

0:10:230:10:27

You told me yourself that his biology coursework looks all right.

0:10:270:10:30

Have you asked any of the other teachers to "bump up" your son's grade?

0:10:300:10:34

Of course not, but he's a fragile kid. I think the scrutiny of tonight might just shatter his confidence.

0:10:340:10:39

Cheating's starting to be a bit of a habit with you, is it?

0:10:390:10:43

Whoa, hang on a minute.

0:10:430:10:44

Look, if he's struggling he needs our support!

0:10:440:10:47

Lying is hardly the answer.

0:10:470:10:49

So, I reckon I can move my stuff out of Mum's later when she's not there.

0:10:490:10:54

-Need a bit of muscle?

-Hiya.

-Oh, Em. Guess what!

0:10:540:10:58

That woman offered me that carer job. I'm moving out!

0:10:580:11:00

You're joking! You've had the interview and everything?

0:11:000:11:03

Yeah, this morning. Oh, Phoenix were great.

0:11:030:11:06

-He got me here on time and everything.

-Oh, right.

0:11:060:11:08

It's like my perfect job.

0:11:080:11:10

Yeah, because looking after some woman with MS every night

0:11:100:11:13

sounds like a right laugh to me. Rock on.

0:11:130:11:16

-It's what she wants to do.

-Yeah, all right, who asked you?

-Don't worry.

0:11:160:11:21

Right, Chalky, just grab that for me.

0:11:230:11:27

-Look at this gear, it's well professional.

-What's he doing here?

0:11:280:11:32

-None of your business, so shut it.

-No, you shut it!

-Uh, Tariq,

0:11:320:11:36

-any more of that and you're back out that door.

-Even though Mr Byrne says I get a go?

0:11:360:11:40

Get a go at what?

0:11:400:11:41

-Are we being recorded or something?

-Right, firstly, guys,

0:11:410:11:45

Tariq is here to help with the percussion section.

0:11:450:11:49

And Simon is here to record the track for us, so it can be played at parents' evening tonight.

0:11:490:11:53

-Nah, you're joking!

-That is so sick!

-What?

0:11:530:11:56

-So it's like a proper record thingy?

-Absolutely.

0:11:560:11:58

-Everyone grab their instruments and gather round in a circle. Come on.

-Double time.

0:11:580:12:03

Let's run through the piece we've been working on the last few weeks.

0:12:030:12:06

-Right, Phoenix, you're coming in first, OK.

-Yeah.

-Are we ready?

0:12:080:12:13

OK, five, six, seven, eight.

0:12:140:12:17

THEY START TO PLAY

0:12:170:12:19

Ready?

0:12:210:12:23

Annie?

0:12:280:12:30

-THEY PLAY OUT OF TUNE

-Nah, that won't fit in there.

-Go, now!

0:12:300:12:35

-Phoenix!

-Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, this is wack, man!

0:12:360:12:41

-We're just warming up, Tariq.

-Yeah, exactly.

0:12:410:12:44

By tonight it's going to be perfect, isn't it?

0:12:440:12:47

-I wanted to give you this back.

-My coursework?

0:12:470:12:51

I could fail you for that, Vicki.

0:12:510:12:54

-SHE SIGHS

-Are you going to?

0:12:580:13:00

-If you resubmit, you could claw it back.

-Is it that bad?

0:13:000:13:06

There's no getting away from it. You've had a lot on your plate.

0:13:060:13:10

-And your work was bound to suffer.

-I don't believe this.

0:13:100:13:15

I'm an A-grade student! You've told me that over and over!

0:13:150:13:18

Yes, and you need to pull something out of the bag and fast.

0:13:180:13:22

-How's the counselling going?

-Not great.

0:13:250:13:29

-I walked out.

-Vicki!

0:13:290:13:34

I...I think you need some support. Urgently.

0:13:360:13:40

And I want you to know that I'm here. If you need anything at all.

0:13:400:13:45

Thanks. I don't know what good it'll do.

0:13:450:13:50

-It's like I'm destined to mess things up at the moment.

-Vicki.

0:13:500:13:54

Sorry, I've got to go.

0:13:560:13:58

-Hey, Vicki, is everything all right?

-Yeah.

0:14:100:14:14

I wanted to ask you, Lauren needs some help with refreshments at parents' evening.

0:14:140:14:18

-Pouring the tea, nicking the biscuits, that sort of thing.

-What?

0:14:180:14:24

-Parents' evening? Refreshments? They need help. Can you do it?

-Whatever.

0:14:240:14:30

Ronan!

0:14:410:14:42

-Come on, son.

-I've got to go, Vicks. speak later, yeah?

0:14:440:14:48

Yeah.

0:14:480:14:50

OK, luckily for us we've got the whole day to get this right.

0:14:530:14:57

So I think we should record it one part at a time.

0:14:570:15:00

-Sir, me and Rhona wrote some lyrics.

-Think it'll make the track sound more interesting.

0:15:000:15:04

Um, I don't think we'll have the time, girls.

0:15:040:15:07

Don't you want lyrics? I'll give you vocals.

0:15:070:15:10

-Like I just said, I don't think we have time.

-Nah, I'm ready. Simon, switch that mic on.

0:15:100:15:15

Testing, testing.

0:15:150:15:17

Right, one, two, one, two, three, four.

0:15:180:15:23

Five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. THEY LAUGH

0:15:230:15:26

-D'you want me to split your head open?

-Tariq!

-No, thanks!

0:15:260:15:30

Yeah, thought so, right. Hush, man, this how it goes.

0:15:300:15:32

-HE RAPS

-Prison life was hard, for them man behind them bars.

0:15:340:15:38

-I walked in, I stood tall, I had fights, I didn't fall.

-LAUGHING

0:15:380:15:42

Parents didn't call. I did a crime...didn't...

0:15:420:15:46

-No, I did time, did a crime...

-Sir, he's crap.

0:15:460:15:49

You should just let us do the singing, seriously.

0:15:490:15:51

-You need to learn some respect, man!

-Do I? Yeah?!

0:15:510:15:54

One more comment from any of you, and you're in the cooler. OK, do I make myself clear?

0:15:540:15:58

Right, Tariq, can you go back to the sound desk, please!

0:15:580:16:01

Sir, all I'm saying is why bother even having music if you can't sing over it?

0:16:010:16:05

-Roll out, man.

-Yeah. You can stuff your stupid orchestra.

0:16:050:16:08

Girls, no, hang on. Mr Wilding? Why can't we try an arrangement

0:16:080:16:12

-with voices? I know it's not what we've been practising, but...

-OK.

0:16:120:16:17

MOBILE RINGS

0:16:170:16:21

-Um, Phoenix! Off!

-Sir, my dad had a hospital appointment.

0:16:210:16:27

He said he'd call me to tell me how it went.

0:16:270:16:30

-Do you mind if I call him back?

-OK, yeah, I hope he's all right.

0:16:300:16:34

-Can Scout come as well?

-Yeah, yeah, fine. Just don't be too long.

0:16:340:16:40

OK, girls, let's hear what you've got.

0:16:400:16:43

Right, OK, just don't do that weird voice you did earlier, yeah?

0:16:470:16:52

PHONE RINGS

0:16:520:16:55

-HE PUTS ON A POSH ACCENT

-Hello, is this Mia Willington?

0:16:550:16:58

-Yep.

-Hi, there, my name's Joe McGuinness.

0:16:580:17:01

I'm ringing from Chantry Hall Nursing Home?

0:17:010:17:04

-I believe I had a missed call from you?

-Yes.

0:17:040:17:06

I didn't know whether I had the right number.

0:17:060:17:09

The voicemail sounded like a school kid, if I'm honest.

0:17:090:17:12

That must have been my son, Phoenix. Erm, he borrowed my phone.

0:17:120:17:16

-He must have changed the voicemail message.

-Right. OK, look,

0:17:160:17:22

I just wanted to double-check a reference on Jodie Allen? One of your carers?

0:17:220:17:26

Oh, she's fabulous and I would trust her with my life.

0:17:260:17:30

She's always been particularly great with the handicapped. Must go now. Bye.

0:17:300:17:35

HE HANGS UP

0:17:350:17:38

Eat your heart out, Robert Pattinson!

0:17:390:17:41

Erm, Wilding's coming.

0:17:430:17:46

Excuse me? Phoenix, we're ready for you.

0:17:460:17:49

Oh, thank you.

0:17:580:18:00

-I think it might be best if we just split the workload.

-OK.

0:18:000:18:04

So if you check the average grade for Year 12 English,

0:18:040:18:07

-I'll crack on with Year 11 science.

-Fine.

0:18:070:18:10

Thanks, Linda, I really appreciate it.

0:18:100:18:13

-Oh, it's no problem.

-KNOCK ON THE DOOR

0:18:130:18:15

Come in.

0:18:150:18:17

-Grantly!

-As instructed.

0:18:170:18:20

My assessment data. But if I could have the folder back.

0:18:200:18:24

It's where I keep my betting slips.

0:18:240:18:27

-Joke.

-HE LAUGHS

0:18:270:18:31

Uh, thank you for this, but you didn't need to write it all down.

0:18:310:18:35

It's submitted online.

0:18:350:18:37

That, Mrs Diamond, is one of the crimes of the computer age,

0:18:370:18:41

the loss of the art of hand-writing.

0:18:410:18:44

It has been noticed by eminent graphologists that

0:18:440:18:46

I am a particularly elegant scribe,

0:18:460:18:48

so I embrace any opportunity to share my graceful hand with others.

0:18:480:18:52

Enjoy.

0:18:520:18:53

This is going to take us an age.

0:18:550:18:59

-Hello?

-Oh, sorry. Miles away.

0:18:590:19:03

Anyone I know? Come on, spill the beans.

0:19:030:19:06

-Oh, God, I can't really say.

-Well, you seem happy.

0:19:060:19:10

-Well, it's early days, but yeah, I am.

-Good.

0:19:100:19:16

Zack Diamond.

0:19:160:19:21

D. Great.

0:19:210:19:25

# Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh... #

0:19:250:19:29

Have we got it? Girls, we've got it, thank you.

0:19:290:19:33

-# Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. #

-Girls, we've got it.

0:19:330:19:36

-# Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. #

-Girls, we've got enough! Thank you.

0:19:360:19:40

-Yeah, more than enough.

-LAUGHING

0:19:400:19:42

-Oh, shut up!

-Cut it out!

0:19:420:19:45

Right, you know that bit. Yeah? Ready to go, yeah?

0:19:450:19:48

-PHONE VIBRATES

-It's Mia. Hi, Mia.

0:19:480:19:52

-Jodie, hi.

-Everything OK?

-Fine, yeah. I just rang to ask you.

0:19:520:19:59

-I spoke to Mr McGuiness.

-Oh, great. I hope he gave me a rave review.

0:19:590:20:04

Yeah. He did.

0:20:040:20:05

But there was just something he said that didn't quite fit.

0:20:050:20:08

-What do you mean?

-He used the word "handicapped".

0:20:080:20:12

It's just an outdated word.

0:20:120:20:14

No professional I know would use that word these days.

0:20:140:20:18

-I also found it slightly offensive.

-Oh, yeah, well,

0:20:180:20:21

to be honest with you, he's a bit old-school.

0:20:210:20:25

-He wouldn't have meant anything by it.

-What was he like as a boss?

0:20:250:20:28

He was always really supportive, a man of his word.

0:20:280:20:33

-Is there anything you'd like doing?

-No. It's OK.

0:20:330:20:37

Oh, actually, you could pick up my tablets on your way over tonight. They're at the surgery.

0:20:370:20:43

They're used to people picking them up on my behalf, just give them my name and address.

0:20:430:20:48

-Absolutely no problem at all! See you later!

-See you, Jodie. And thanks.

0:20:480:20:53

-I've got a question.

-Sure?

-Some of the kids are really down on themselves about their grades.

0:20:590:21:04

Vicki Macdonald freaked out just now and maybe I've raised her expectations too much.

0:21:040:21:09

-I'm all for raising their expectations.

-What if we interview her?

0:21:090:21:13

Gave her a character assessment, and tried to work out if there are

0:21:130:21:17

any external circumstances affecting her grades.

0:21:170:21:20

Then we could provide extra support, you know, we could allocate

0:21:200:21:24

an aspirational grade, based on what she wants to reach at A-level.

0:21:240:21:27

Sure, take some time off lessons this afternoon, reassess.

0:21:270:21:30

Most of the teachers have to sit there tonight and talk about "potential",

0:21:300:21:34

-but if we don't have a concrete process...

-Sian?

0:21:340:21:37

-Yeah?

-I just said that's great. I'll find some cover for you.

-What? That's OK?

0:21:370:21:41

-Yes. Of course.

-Great. OK.

0:21:410:21:46

-Well, I'll leave you to it.

-Uh, Sian?

-Yeah?

0:21:460:21:51

Are we OK with what happened last week? With Jez.

0:21:510:21:56

-I was just doing my job.

-Yeah, sure. I'd better get on.

0:21:560:22:02

OK, guys, tell you what, let's hear what we've got so far, shall we?

0:22:050:22:09

-Matt?

-Rosie!

0:22:110:22:14

Er, we're trying to record a song in here, so will you...

0:22:140:22:18

Sorry. We need to talk about the appointment.

0:22:180:22:21

-Um, will you just take over for a second?

-Oh, that's just great!

0:22:230:22:28

What are you doing here?

0:22:290:22:31

Good news, we've been bumped up the waiting list!

0:22:310:22:34

We've got an appointment in half an hour. But, if we leave now...

0:22:340:22:37

-I can't now.

-How long have we been planning this?!

0:22:370:22:39

Rosie, I'm teaching! I can't just go! Plus this recording thing we're doing is for tonight.

0:22:390:22:44

-It's parents' evening.

-Matt, we've been given the thumbs up.

0:22:440:22:48

We've already paid for the consultation.

0:22:480:22:51

We just need to go in, you do... your business,

0:22:510:22:55

we sign a few forms, and then we're away. Don't bail on me now.

0:22:550:22:59

Come on, please. This is it, now. The day is upon us.

0:22:590:23:05

It'll take twenty minutes. Max. You've got cover, yeah?

0:23:050:23:09

-Everything all right?

-Um, yes, absolutely fine. Hi, I'm Rosie.

0:23:110:23:16

-Old friend of Matt's. You are?

-Daniel Chalk.

-Chalky.

-Chalky,

0:23:160:23:21

I just need to steal him for half an hour.

0:23:210:23:24

I really need his sperm, you see.

0:23:240:23:26

-Can't actually believe you just said that.

-Yeah, you can.

0:23:260:23:31

-You're trying for a kid?

-Yeah.

-Ooh, top banana.

0:23:310:23:37

-So, um, can you cover for him?

-Look, I can't ask Chalky to cover.

0:23:370:23:42

-Well, I suppose I could.

-You see? We're sorted. Come on.

-Are you sure?

0:23:420:23:47

-Are you sure? I won't be long, OK?

-Yeah. You have a nice, um...time.

0:23:470:23:54

What's Ronan playing at?

0:23:590:24:00

-Sounds like they're trying to sort stuff out.

-Why bother?

0:24:000:24:03

It's not like they had a row. She battered him. Now he's going back for more?

0:24:030:24:07

-What, is she hypnotising him as well or something?

-You all right, Vick?

0:24:070:24:12

-Look, I'm sorry, I was just..

-Oh, no, carry on.

0:24:140:24:17

-I was just making sure yous was OK.

-Yeah, we're fine.

0:24:170:24:20

Not that it's any of your business.

0:24:200:24:23

-Well, it kind of is, because Ronan's my mate.

-Well, he's my boyfriend.

0:24:230:24:26

-You should have thought about that before you went for him.

-Don't listen to him.

0:24:260:24:29

You're right, it's none of our business.

0:24:290:24:32

Oh, don't worry. I was just leaving anyway.

0:24:320:24:35

Now look what you've done!

0:24:370:24:39

-Well handled!

-Come on, don't tell me you're siding with her.

0:24:390:24:43

She's got Ronan wrapped around her little finger!

0:24:430:24:45

-You getting fresh with Trudi now, then?

-No.

-Yeah, what are you doing?

0:24:450:24:51

-Nothing!

-Dream on, Finn.

0:24:510:24:54

SHOUTING AND ARGUING

0:24:580:25:03

-QUIET!

-THEY STOP TALKING

0:25:090:25:11

Yes, right, well, I'm afraid we're going to have to crack on

0:25:180:25:22

without Mr Wilding. He's had to...pop off. Tariq.

0:25:220:25:29

-Why don't we listen to Shona and Rhona's recording, eh?

-Coming up!

0:25:290:25:33

VOICES ARE SPEEDED UP AND DISTORTED

0:25:350:25:37

-LAUGHTER

-Thought you needed a bit of help.

-Do you think that's funny?

0:25:370:25:41

-Sounds well better, don't it?

-Take that effect off the voices, please.

0:25:410:25:45

I need that bloke back, I seem to have deleted it. I'm sorry.

0:25:450:25:49

-Nah, you're lying!

-Stop wrecking everything.

-Me, wrecking it?

0:25:490:25:52

-They're the ones that shouted me off the mic!

-Just stop it!

0:25:520:25:56

Bunch of amateurs. I'm done. Forget this!

0:25:580:26:02

-BELL RINGS

-Right, see you all after the break,

0:26:030:26:07

when we'll get the recording finished.

0:26:070:26:10

-You hanging out with me tonight?

-I can't.

0:26:130:26:16

I've got to get Mia's pills and then go to work.

0:26:160:26:18

I can't wait to start this job. It's going to be great.

0:26:180:26:21

-We could nick off now and pick up the pills?

-Yeah, right.

0:26:210:26:24

It's break. We'll be back in time, Mr Wilding's not even here.

0:26:240:26:29

-Like you said. You need to keep your new boss sweet.

-I don't know.

0:26:290:26:33

-Oh, come on. It'll be a laugh.

-All right, then.

0:26:330:26:39

-Where are you going?

-Tell you later. Cover for me, yeah?

0:26:390:26:43

-Boo!

-Linda.

0:26:470:26:49

-Hey, great initiative Sian's got going on there.

-Glad you approve.

0:26:490:26:53

Um, do you like Vietnamese food?

0:26:530:26:56

Cos I thought maybe I could rustle something up later.

0:26:560:26:59

Eat with our fingers. Get a bit...messy.

0:26:590:27:01

I've never really gone in for the whole eat-with-your-fingers thing.

0:27:010:27:05

Oh, you're right, all those silly little bowls.

0:27:050:27:07

I do have cutlery too, so, you know.

0:27:070:27:10

Look, Linda, I want to be clear.

0:27:140:27:17

What happened on Friday was a one-off between two consenting adults.

0:27:200:27:25

But we crossed a line.

0:27:250:27:28

Never to be repeated.

0:27:280:27:30

All right?

0:27:300:27:32

Yeah. I suppose.

0:27:320:27:34

You know me.

0:27:340:27:36

It wouldn't work.

0:27:360:27:39

-Of course. Yeah. Fine.

-So, we're OK?

-Sure.

0:27:390:27:44

Tariq, you going to come back in, or what?

0:28:040:28:08

What for? No-one wants my rhymes.

0:28:080:28:10

You've done nothing but sneer at everyone.

0:28:100:28:12

What did you expect when you got up, eh? Wild applause?

0:28:120:28:15

-"I heart Tariq" banners?

-No. Just wanted to make music. That's all.

0:28:150:28:18

But the orchestra's about the final sound.

0:28:180:28:22

I mean, ideally you don't want to turn it into a chorus of gremlins.

0:28:220:28:26

Hey, it's not funny. Look I might be an old duffer who knows nothing.

0:28:260:28:31

But from what I heard, you sounded all right.

0:28:310:28:34

It's a tough crowd in there, don't let them put you off.

0:28:340:28:37

In fact, if it hadn't been so disruptive,

0:28:370:28:39

-I was going to ask you, you know, how you did that thing. on the voices.

-Weren't that difficult.

0:28:390:28:46

You going to come back in or what? I've got a song to write in... four hours.

0:28:460:28:52

Hmmm. I could really do with your help.

0:28:520:28:56

-Right, here we are, then.

-Yup.

0:29:010:29:04

-The "love nest".

-Could do with a few candles, couldn't it?

0:29:040:29:08

Glass of wine would go down a treat.

0:29:080:29:10

-Yeah, how drunk were we when we had this idea?

-Remarkably.

0:29:100:29:14

-It'll be great.

-Yeah, yeah, hope so.

0:29:160:29:20

-Rosie, is this us?

-What do you mean?

0:29:350:29:39

I woke up this morning, worrying about speakers and sound desks.

0:29:390:29:43

And now we're sat here, about to be parents.

0:29:430:29:46

Before you know it, we're going to be arguing over who helps

0:29:460:29:51

with the English homework, and pottering off to parents' evening.

0:29:510:29:55

-It's just really messing with my head.

-Matt.

0:29:550:29:58

We've gone through it all.

0:29:580:30:01

-Mr Wilding.

-Yeah.

0:30:010:30:04

Anyway, you were the one who said my baby - our baby -

0:30:040:30:07

should know its dad.

0:30:070:30:11

Yeah. Yeah, you're right. OK, sorry, here goes.

0:30:130:30:17

So we have Mercury! Venus!

0:30:200:30:23

Earth! Mars!

0:30:230:30:25

Come on, up you come. Jupiter!

0:30:250:30:28

Saturn! Uranus! Neptune!

0:30:280:30:32

Come on, planets are quick, you're quick planets! Very good.

0:30:320:30:35

Right, imagine that the playground here is our galaxy, only smaller.

0:30:350:30:40

Stand in relation to the sun and in a minute

0:30:400:30:42

we'll work out the relative distance between all the planets.

0:30:420:30:46

I need someone to be the sun. Zack?

0:30:460:30:49

-Where would you be, do you think? Which end is hotter?

-Mercury.

0:30:490:30:52

Brilliant, well done. So, we have Sun, Mercury.

0:30:520:30:56

-And after Mercury comes Venus.

-Uh, Mr Byrne, can I steal Zack for a moment, please?

0:30:560:31:02

Well, that'd be tricky. We'll lose all of our light and heat, won't we?

0:31:020:31:06

But we'll manage. Off you go, Sunshine.

0:31:060:31:09

Don't worry, Zack, you're not in trouble, OK?

0:31:090:31:12

-I didn't mean you had to cover for me.

-Are you joking?

0:31:120:31:15

I love this, should be doing it more often. OK, now, where did we get?

0:31:150:31:20

We got as far as Mars, but hold on a minute, back to relative distances. If Neptune is down the end here.

0:31:200:31:25

-Done and dusted. As they say.

-Great.

0:31:280:31:32

-Right, I'd better get back to school.

-Please stay.

0:31:320:31:35

At least until I go in. I feel a bit sick.

0:31:350:31:40

-It's nerves. Sweaty palms.

-OK. Of course.

0:31:400:31:45

-Matt, are you all right?

-Yeah. Yeah.

0:31:490:31:54

We'll be fine.

0:31:540:31:57

See? It's not all doom and gloom, is it?

0:31:570:32:00

Nobody expects GCSE standard just yet. And your Dad is really proud you're trying, we both are.

0:32:000:32:05

Will you tell Dad tonight that you reckon I could get a B in science?

0:32:050:32:09

-Yeah, of course, I think he'd rather hear it from you. Come on, off you go.

-Hey, sorry.

0:32:090:32:15

I just need to grab some stuff,

0:32:150:32:17

I still haven't set things up in the hall properly. I need to work on my time management.

0:32:170:32:22

-I've left it all a bit late.

-Is there anything I can do?

-No.

0:32:220:32:25

You've got enough on your plate. I've been thinking about Vicki.

0:32:250:32:29

-I'll have a word with Ronan. Get his take on it.

-Are you sure you've got time?

-I'll have to make time.

0:32:290:32:34

Otherwise I'm not doing my job properly.

0:32:340:32:38

All right? You're joking! Phoenix is cool, and funny and daring.

0:32:380:32:43

He's really kind too, he offered me a place to stay, if I need it!

0:32:430:32:47

-Oh, my God, you're so into him.

-No!

0:32:470:32:50

Yeah, all right!

0:32:500:32:53

-He's not really my type. We can all be daring.

-Oi, give it back!

0:32:530:32:58

-What do they do?

-Em, they're prescription drugs.

0:32:580:33:00

For the treatment of anxiety, insomnia and muscle spasms.

0:33:000:33:03

-That's Mia's medicine!

-Go on. It'll be a laugh. We can hang out.

0:33:030:33:07

-Get wasted.

-Em, no!

0:33:070:33:09

-Oi! What are you two doing?

-We just...popped out.

0:33:090:33:13

-Yeah. Popped.

-You're supposed to be in class! What's going on?

0:33:130:33:18

-All due respect, sir, you're supposed to be in class too.

-Right, get inside, both of you. Now.

0:33:180:33:22

-Are you mad?

-Chill out. It's just a laugh.

0:33:240:33:28

-FROM THE CANTEEN:

-Get your hands off me. Cut it out, mate!

-LAUGHING

0:33:300:33:35

All right, you lot.

0:33:370:33:39

-I though Vicki was supposed to be helping you?

-I haven't seen her.

0:33:390:33:43

I thought you said you didn't want her to help.

0:33:430:33:45

-Ronan?

-We're not joined at the hip. She don't have to know me every move.

0:33:450:33:49

But you are keeping an eye on her, aren't you?

0:33:490:33:52

She just needs a bit of help at the moment

0:33:520:33:55

from the people that love her, and, in case you've forgotten, that'd be you.

0:33:550:33:58

OK, we're doing great, but we haven't put the guitars on yet or the bass or the trumpets, flute.

0:34:000:34:06

-Hey, what's going on? I just found these two out the front.

-Oh, great!

0:34:060:34:11

-You've been practising, all this time?

-No, they haven't.

0:34:110:34:15

-They've been skiving.

-I was told they had to practise.

0:34:150:34:18

OK, Em, you're just in time to record your flute part.

0:34:180:34:22

-Let's get cracking! Clock's ticking.

-You should have thought about that before you took off!

0:34:220:34:27

Yeah, thank you, Rhona!

0:34:270:34:29

OK.

0:34:320:34:33

-THEY LAUGH

-Hey, cut it out.

0:34:380:34:42

Cut it out.

0:34:420:34:43

-What's she on about?

-She's taking the mick.

0:34:430:34:45

-You know what, we don't even need a flute.

-I'll be the judge of that, yeah?

0:34:450:34:49

Em? You all right, yeah?

0:34:540:34:57

SHE TRIES TO PLAY THE FLUTE

0:34:580:35:00

SHE JUST BLOWS AIR THROUGH

0:35:000:35:03

-ECHOING:

-Em? What's wrong?

0:35:030:35:05

-ECHOING:

-Em, come on, put some passion into it, yeah?

0:35:050:35:10

-Come on, go again.

-Sir, she looks like she's tripping.

0:35:100:35:15

Something's not right here. She's not well.

0:35:150:35:19

OK, Em, stop. What's wrong?

0:35:190:35:22

-Look at her eyes.

-I don't...know.

0:35:250:35:30

I feel awful, my head's pounding.

0:35:310:35:35

-Oh, my God!

-What's the matter with her?

-She's taken Diazepam!

-What?!

0:35:360:35:42

Right, we need to get her to the sick bay now. Tariq, grab the door.

0:35:420:35:46

Can you look after the recording for me?

0:35:460:35:48

Mr Byrne's going to want to know what's gone on here.

0:35:480:35:51

-I'd best go with them.

-I've got it.

0:35:510:35:53

Can you take a break from that?

0:35:580:36:00

Either I need to work harder, or I don't. I thought I was failing.

0:36:000:36:05

Vicki, I need to interview you, and you need to co-operate with me.

0:36:050:36:08

What's the point? I'm going to fail anyway. I may as well leave.

0:36:080:36:11

-I'm not going to let you fail.

-I'm going to get a C!

0:36:110:36:14

-To get into a top university, I need an A!

-What do you want, Vicki?

0:36:140:36:19

-What do you mean?

-Well, forget about everything that's happened.

0:36:190:36:23

-What do you actually want?

-I don't know any more.

0:36:230:36:28

Right. Well, then you listen to me.

0:36:280:36:31

If you've decided your education is over, then it's over.

0:36:310:36:34

It's that simple. Life's hard. You know it just is.

0:36:340:36:39

And it surprises you. I mean, you've seen me go through it a little bit this term.

0:36:390:36:43

I mean, if you'd have told me

0:36:430:36:45

this time last year that I'd be married with step-kids...

0:36:450:36:49

Well, let's just say it's not what I expected. But you've just

0:36:490:36:53

got to get on with it. You can't unravel. It's not an option.

0:36:530:36:57

I want to go to university. I want to do a degree in biochemistry.

0:37:020:37:06

-OK. And how much do you want that?

-More than anything.

0:37:060:37:11

Good.

0:37:120:37:14

Oh, sorry.

0:37:150:37:18

It's OK. I think we're done here. Thanks, Mrs Diamond.

0:37:180:37:22

-Bye.

-Wow.

0:37:250:37:29

-She looks happier. How did you do that?

-Well, her confidence is low.

0:37:290:37:34

-I just reminded her of a few things.

-Good.

0:37:340:37:37

-Look at you, showing off earlier.

-Yeah, something like that.

0:37:370:37:42

It was nice to roll my sleeves up again anyway.

0:37:420:37:45

Well, it was good to see.

0:37:450:37:47

Sian, I've finished with Grantly's grades.

0:37:470:37:50

Will you check I've inputted them on to the system OK?

0:37:500:37:53

When you get a minute. Excuse me.

0:37:530:37:56

Hiya.

0:38:060:38:07

-Sorry I haven't been around much today. You OK?

-Yeah, I'm fine.

0:38:090:38:15

Just trying to clear my head. Something that Mrs Diamond said.

0:38:150:38:19

Oh, right. How did it go? Did you get your coursework back?

0:38:190:38:25

Now he's asking.

0:38:250:38:27

Well, that's not fair.

0:38:270:38:29

What do you want me to do?

0:38:300:38:33

Look, it's going to take me time.

0:38:340:38:37

Yeah, well, you were fine this morning.

0:38:370:38:39

Yeah, well, maybe I've had a chance to think about it.

0:38:390:38:42

I can't pretend that everything's OK.

0:38:420:38:44

-I can't pretend that last week you didn't hate my guts.

-All right.

0:38:440:38:49

-You don't need to say it out loud.

-Well, it happened, Vic.

0:38:490:38:54

I've got to learn to trust you again.

0:38:540:38:56

The person that I love, the person that I thought loved me.

0:38:560:39:00

-No, I do love you!

-You act like everyone's out to get you.

0:39:000:39:04

I know, but I need to move on from this too.

0:39:040:39:09

I want to make it up to you, so we can get back to normal.

0:39:100:39:15

I know. Come here.

0:39:150:39:18

Yeah, this all looks really good!

0:39:250:39:27

I cannot tell you what a relief it is to have it finished.

0:39:270:39:30

We can tell the staff it's ready for printing now.

0:39:300:39:33

-Michael will be pleased.

-He'd better be.

-Sian?

-Yeah?

0:39:330:39:40

Do you mind me asking...you had a thing with Michael, didn't you?

0:39:400:39:44

-Yeah. A long time ago.

-We should probably compare notes, then.

0:39:440:39:50

What?

0:39:510:39:54

You and Michael?

0:39:540:39:56

He's your mystery man.

0:39:580:40:00

We had too much to drink, but still. It was quite a night.

0:40:010:40:05

-I'm sure.

-Now he says it's a one-off, which is just...

0:40:060:40:11

hurting a bit.

0:40:110:40:12

I'm sorry.

0:40:140:40:15

Was it the same with you and him?

0:40:170:40:19

-When you broke up?

-Uh, it was complicated.

0:40:190:40:24

-His head was in pieces, and he kind of pushed me away.

-Right.

0:40:240:40:29

Actually, could we talk about this later?

0:40:290:40:32

-I'm just clock-watching a little bit. Is that all right?

-Of course.

0:40:320:40:37

Sian, you won't say anything to Michael? My pride and all that.

0:40:370:40:41

Sure.

0:40:410:40:43

SHE WRETCHES AND COUGHS

0:40:530:40:56

The nurse says she'll be fine.

0:41:010:41:05

-Where did Em get the pills?

-Sir, is she going to be all right?

0:41:170:41:20

She's just taken drugs, what do you think? Now, I asked you a question!

0:41:200:41:24

Where did Em get the pills?!

0:41:240:41:27

I've got this job, all right, working for someone. Mia Willington.

0:41:310:41:39

She asked me to go to the doctors and collect her prescription.

0:41:390:41:42

So, you gave HER prescription drugs to your friend?

0:41:420:41:45

I didn't give them to her! She snatched them and shoved them down her throat!

0:41:450:41:49

Don't lie to me, Scout. You've dealt drugs before, haven't you?

0:41:490:41:53

-Are you at it again?

-I'm not! Em taking them drugs was nowt to do with me!

0:41:530:41:57

Right, report back to me after you've collected your things.

0:41:570:42:01

I'll give you a letter for your mother telling her you're excluded!

0:42:010:42:04

What's the point? She don't give a toss. You don't get it, do you?

0:42:040:42:10

Why d'you think I got a job working nights?

0:42:120:42:15

Because I don't want to be at home with her!

0:42:150:42:20

I'm not going back.

0:42:200:42:22

We can't force her to go home if she doesn't want to.

0:42:220:42:25

Fine, then we'll call Social Services.

0:42:250:42:27

What, so, you're just going to chuck me back into care, then?

0:42:270:42:30

Scout, it's your doing.

0:42:300:42:33

All I wanted to do was just to get a life for myself.

0:42:330:42:38

Sometimes in this job you just have to trust your instincts.

0:42:490:42:52

What? Even if you might be wrong?

0:42:520:42:55

-Do you realise what you've done? Do you?

-I know, I...

0:43:040:43:08

It's all right for you, with your cosy house and your caring mum.

0:43:080:43:12

Because of you showing off, taking those pills, I've lost my job.

0:43:120:43:16

-That was going to be my new home!

-I'm sorry. I am. I just...

0:43:160:43:20

I just thought we weren't going to be mates.

0:43:200:43:23

This is so messed up. Mr Byrne's ringing Social Services.

0:43:230:43:27

Because of all this, I might get taken back into care!

0:43:270:43:32

Do you get it?! Do you get how stupid it was

0:43:320:43:34

to take those pills now?!

0:43:340:43:36

Well, Mrs Willington, I'm just so sorry that you've been lied to.

0:43:410:43:45

KNOCK ON THE DOOR I can only offer you my most sincere apologies.

0:43:450:43:49

Thank you. Goodbye.

0:43:500:43:53

Come.

0:43:530:43:56

Take a seat.

0:44:000:44:02

-Well, you are one very silly little girl.

-Sir, I know. I'm sorry.

0:44:020:44:09

Take my advice. Stay away from Jodie Allen. She's nothing but trouble.

0:44:090:44:12

But she's my best friend. What happened to me was nothing to do with her.

0:44:120:44:18

I took those drugs from her.

0:44:180:44:22

She tried to stop me, but I wouldn't let her.

0:44:220:44:25

-I was showing off.

-You were showing off?

0:44:250:44:29

-I don't know why.

-Well, thanks to you, Miss James,

0:44:300:44:34

Jodie's going to a care home tonight.

0:44:340:44:36

-Sir, please don't let that happen.

-There's nowhere else for her to go.

0:44:360:44:40

My mum'll take her in. She's stayed over at ours loads of times.

0:44:400:44:44

My mum really likes her. There's an empty room too,

0:44:440:44:49

my sister's never going to want it again.

0:44:490:44:51

OK, fine, take the phone.

0:44:510:44:55

Give your mother a call and let's give this a try.

0:44:550:45:00

Scout!

0:45:080:45:11

-I spoke to my mum. Will you move in with us?

-You ARE kidding?

0:45:110:45:15

Seriously. The school reckons it's OK

0:45:150:45:18

and she'll speak to Social Services, do whatever it takes. Scout!

0:45:180:45:22

I'm really sorry about earlier.

0:45:240:45:27

Well? Happy?

0:45:270:45:31

I jumped to conclusions, Jodie. I really shouldn't have.

0:45:330:45:36

No, you shouldn't.

0:45:360:45:38

And there was me thinking I'm a good judge of character. After today, I'm not so sure.

0:45:380:45:44

But I owe you an apology.

0:45:440:45:47

-Did Em talk to you about arrangements?

-Yeah.

0:45:480:45:52

-I guess it could work.

-Good.

0:45:540:45:58

Oh, and don't you think you've got away with what you did today.

0:46:010:46:04

You can wave goodbye to your lunchtime breaks for the foreseeable future.

0:46:040:46:09

Hey, Scout, are you up for a burger after parents' evening?

0:46:120:46:15

Sorry, I can't. I'm moving in Em's tonight. Go on, take a picture.

0:46:150:46:19

It's ANOTHER moment in history!

0:46:190:46:23

Come on.

0:46:320:46:33

OK, some of the parents have started to arrive,

0:46:350:46:38

so if you could make your way downstairs that'd be great.

0:46:380:46:41

And I've got the final student grades here.

0:46:410:46:43

-Sian.

-Yeah.

0:46:440:46:47

-Thanks. Zack said that you'd had a word.

-Yeah, I did.

0:46:470:46:52

-Well, he seemed happier.

-He needs to know that you believe in him, Jez.

-Where's that come from?

0:46:520:46:57

He thinks that you're ashamed of him, because he's struggling.

0:46:570:47:00

-Is he wrong?

-I can't win with you, can I?

0:47:000:47:05

-Now, purple, does it say confident, or bit of a berk?

-Berk.

0:47:080:47:14

Yeah, thought so. I'll go with the other one. I need a vote of confidence.

0:47:140:47:19

Are we to be treated to the fruits of your musical labours this evening?

0:47:190:47:24

Oh, yes. Everyone's in for, er... quite a surprise.

0:47:240:47:28

Right, folks, I've just been downstairs

0:47:290:47:31

and, Sian, you've done a terrific job.

0:47:310:47:35

Chalky, it's parents evening, not speed dating.

0:47:350:47:39

Oh, haha, no, no, it's Echinacea. I get a bit jumpy, you know.

0:47:390:47:43

Well, you should expect a warmer than usual response out there.

0:47:430:47:47

And I know I already owe you all a drink. Pub. Later. The first round is mine.

0:47:470:47:52

-Well, that is a language I respect and understand.

-You are a genius.

0:47:520:47:57

-Hardly. Do you mind?

-What?

-I have to go.

0:47:570:48:00

-Milk, two sugars, yeah?

-You'll be lucky.

0:48:100:48:13

-Ready to go soon?

-Yeah, sure.

-Hello.

0:48:130:48:16

-Vick, I'm really sorry about before.

-It's all right.

-You know me.

0:48:190:48:26

-Couldn't help myself.

-I don't blame you, to be honest.

0:48:260:48:30

-We're going to get off anyway.

-Right. Have a good one, mate.

-Nice one.

0:48:300:48:35

# All of the little things

0:48:360:48:38

# Simple things, they remind me

0:48:380:48:41

# Kept them deep inside of me, oh, baby

0:48:410:48:44

# All the sweet memories

0:48:440:48:46

# All behind me, always seem to find me

0:48:460:48:50

# So tell me, can we take it back?

0:48:500:48:54

# To you and me, baby, how we used to be, baby?

0:48:540:48:59

# Can we take it back...? #

0:48:590:49:02

Well, good evening, everyone.

0:49:020:49:04

I just wanted to thank you all for coming.

0:49:040:49:06

It's been an absolutely wonderful turnout, so thank you again.

0:49:060:49:10

Now, the pupils have done us proud recently, even pupils with

0:49:100:49:13

lower grades have been able to set their own bench marks thanks to

0:49:130:49:18

our aspirational grade initiative, meaning those pupils with low grades

0:49:180:49:22

can think about what they can achieve with the right application.

0:49:220:49:26

Because here at Waterloo Road we believe that every child

0:49:260:49:29

should be able to aim higher and be assessed on that potential,

0:49:290:49:33

and our pupils have proved that they are a force to be reckoned with.

0:49:330:49:40

Just to demonstrate that, a few of our music students spent

0:49:400:49:44

the day working hard to prepare their own music track.

0:49:440:49:48

And I think now we're fortunate enough to be able to hear it.

0:49:480:49:51

Tariq?

0:49:510:49:52

SILENCE

0:49:520:49:54

LAUGHTER Technical glitch.

0:49:540:49:58

TRACK PLAYS

0:50:030:50:07

THE TWINS RECOGNISE THEIR VOICES ON THE TRACK

0:50:180:50:20

-Oh! You!

-See!

0:50:200:50:25

Is this you?

0:50:430:50:46

# Prison life was hard, for them man behind them bars

0:50:460:50:48

# I had fights, didn't fall

0:50:480:50:50

# Parents, I couldn't call

0:50:500:50:52

# Did the crime, did the time... #

0:50:520:50:53

Is this Tariq? When did you record this?

0:50:530:50:56

Oh, we've been beavering away, you know?

0:50:560:50:58

-This is great.

-Chalky, you've produced a music track!

0:50:580:51:03

You're a bona fide music producer.

0:51:030:51:06

THEY LAUGH

0:51:060:51:08

Do you wanna get some drinks in from me?

0:51:080:51:12

I'll be along after I've finished cleaning up, thanks. Matt?

0:51:120:51:17

Well done. Thank you for taking that gamble.

0:51:170:51:21

Are you happy with that?

0:51:210:51:23

D'you like it?

0:51:280:51:30

-What? Tariq was?

-Yeah, he was brilliant.

0:51:300:51:33

What kind of music was it, Chalky?

0:51:330:51:35

-Well, it was sick.

-TITTERING

0:51:350:51:38

Nah, it started off a bit grimey,

0:51:380:51:41

then when the "dub-step" kicked in Tariq was MCing over the top.

0:51:410:51:45

-Right, my round!

-I'll give you a hand.

0:51:450:51:48

-Why was he sick?

-THEY LAUGH

0:51:490:51:54

-Couldn't these have waited?

-I just wanted all the records of attendance.

0:51:560:52:01

-Right.

-Sian?

-Yeah?

0:52:010:52:03

-Everything all right between you and Jez?

-Yeah. Why?

0:52:030:52:07

You just seemed a bit tense earlier, that's all.

0:52:070:52:10

I'm surprised you had time to notice anyone else's love life,

0:52:100:52:14

there seems to be so much going on in your own.

0:52:140:52:16

What's that supposed to mean?

0:52:160:52:18

Apparently, there was no stopping you. "Quite a night," she said.

0:52:180:52:21

Linda.

0:52:240:52:26

And why are you worried about that?

0:52:260:52:30

-I'm not worried.

-Well, you don't seem happy about it.

0:52:300:52:34

I just...I think it's in poor taste.

0:52:340:52:36

You're her boss. She's obviously into you, and you just...

0:52:360:52:39

We're two consenting adults. We can do whatever we like.

0:52:390:52:43

-Yeah, I know that.

-Are you jealous?

0:52:430:52:46

Are you out of your mind?!

0:52:460:52:49

Yeah, you are, you're jealous.

0:52:490:52:52

-You haven't got a clue, have you?!

-What?!

-This is what you do, Michael, you play with people.

0:52:520:52:57

-You did it to me and now you've done it to Linda!

-You ran off and got married!

-Don't you dare.

0:52:570:53:03

I should go.

0:53:090:53:11

-Are you OK?

-Yeah.

-Quite caught me by surprise today.

0:53:190:53:23

-What, you mean you don't think I'm ready to be a dad?

-Course I do.

0:53:230:53:27

Rosie and I had this drunken idea, but what if we don't get on?

0:53:280:53:34

I mean, I can't have my child growing up thinking that he or she

0:53:340:53:38

was a mistake, like Scout.

0:53:380:53:40

-If there's one teacher Scout talks about all the time, it's you.

-Oh, come on.

0:53:400:53:45

No, no, she is one of the most difficult kids in that school

0:53:450:53:48

and you got through to her.

0:53:480:53:50

You and Rosie, you're good friends, aren't you?

0:53:510:53:55

Surely you can pass that on to the little one? Some parents couldn't.

0:53:550:53:59

Maybe you should just stop worrying?

0:53:590:54:03

MOBILE RINGS

0:54:060:54:09

Hey, how are our baby plans coming along?

0:54:150:54:18

KNOCK ON THE DOOR Sian.

0:54:230:54:26

You.

0:54:280:54:30

Thought I'd check out parents' evening. Very interesting.

0:54:300:54:34

People really like you, don't they?

0:54:340:54:37

-Sounds like you're the big hero again.

-Get out of my office.

0:54:370:54:40

Could have wheeled me out. Seeing as I was your big success story.

0:54:400:54:43

You need to leave. Right now. Otherwise I'm calling the police.

0:54:450:54:49

OK. We can tell them about you popping round my place.

0:54:490:54:53

-Threatening me.

-What do you want?

-My girlfriend kicked me out today.

0:54:530:54:57

-So? What, you've nobody to talk to about it?

-Don't push it.

0:54:590:55:03

So, now, because of you, I've got no home, no girlfriend.

0:55:030:55:07

Wayne, how is this my fault?

0:55:070:55:08

Because of the case, I was away on remand.

0:55:080:55:11

And I missed the birth of my little girl. And now Alicia wants me out.

0:55:110:55:15

-I've got nothing.

-Wayne, I did everything I could for you when you were at school! You know that!

0:55:150:55:20

HE LAUGHS God, you're so ungrateful.

0:55:200:55:24

You can't have everything handed to you on a plate.

0:55:240:55:27

Sooner or later you're going to have to man up,

0:55:270:55:30

take responsibility for your own life.

0:55:300:55:33

-It's your fault I'm out on the street now.

-See, there you go again! Go on. GET OUT!

0:55:330:55:39

You're actually quite scared of me, aren't you?

0:55:420:55:45

Brilliant.

0:55:470:55:50

-Hi, guys.

-All right, where have you been?

0:55:560:55:59

-I had to help take down some display boards.

-Really?

0:55:590:56:02

You should've said. I'd have helped you.

0:56:020:56:04

-Are you not stopping for another?

-No, I should get back.

0:56:040:56:07

-You OK?

-Yeah, it's just been a long day, that's all.

0:56:070:56:10

-Bye.

-See you.

-Sit down.

-Thank you.

0:56:100:56:15

-Are we all right?

-Yeah, of course.

0:56:170:56:19

-I'll get you a glass of wine. You deserve it. Anyone else?

-Please.

-Yes, please, mate.

0:56:190:56:24

-Hey! I thought I told you to leave.

-Here he is.

0:56:320:56:38

-Get yourself off school property right now!

-Make me.

0:56:380:56:41

-I'm not going to tell you again.

-Go on, then!

-GO!

0:56:410:56:43

-HE LAUGHS

-Come on, then!

0:56:430:56:46

Get out of here!

0:56:460:56:50

YOU LEAVE ME ALONE!

0:56:500:56:52

Oh, man, you're asking for it! Again!

0:56:570:57:00

What did you say? What did you say?!

0:57:030:57:07

What you going to do, eh?

0:57:230:57:26

Be a man about it, eh?

0:57:260:57:30

Me and you are going to see a lot more of each other.

0:57:310:57:34

That Wayne lad that Michael reckoned stabbed him

0:57:560:57:59

is unconscious in hospital.

0:57:590:58:01

Suspected foul play.

0:58:010:58:02

-Show me your phone!

-I wish I could, but if I do I'll land someone in trouble.

-With who?

-The police.

0:58:070:58:13

Me and Trudi, we've been, like, going out, but in secret.

0:58:130:58:15

Now I have heard it all. Tariq's going to kill you.

0:58:150:58:19

You come here!

0:58:190:58:23

-We're together.

-It's true.

0:58:230:58:24

Finn, RUN!

Scout Allen believes her problems are solved when she gets a job as a live-in carer, only for Em's reckless behaviour to jeopardise everything. Matt's orchestra project for parents' evening looks to be derailed by a promise to an old friend, and Michael receives an unwelcome visitor.
