CHEERING

0:01:190:01:21

MUSIC: "The Blue Danube" by Johann Strauss Jnr

0:01:370:01:41

Come on, 100!

0:02:050:02:06

Scott won most of the trophies here.

0:02:230:02:27

The tragedy was he was a champion.

0:02:270:02:30

'Welcome to the Southern Districts Waratah Championships.

0:02:320:02:37

'You're going to see some of the top dancers in the Southern Districts.'

0:02:370:02:44

We thought he was over the silliness,

0:02:440:02:48

never that he'd do it in front of...

0:02:480:02:52

Federation President Barry Fife. CHEERING

0:02:520:02:55

'Don't forget, the official Federation video...'

0:02:550:03:00

Wonderful to see you, Barry!

0:03:000:03:02

Barry Fife's Dance To Win is on sale here tonight! Yeah.

0:03:020:03:08

There was no doubt in anyone's mind

0:03:080:03:11

that Scott and Liz would be the next Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Amateur Five Dance Latin American champions.

0:03:110:03:18

And then came that...

0:03:180:03:21

Samba!

0:03:210:03:23

MUSIC: "Sinful Samba"

0:03:230:03:25

CRIES OF ENCOURAGEMENT

0:03:290:03:32

< Come on, 54!

0:03:360:03:38

< Come on, 69!

0:03:390:03:42

CHEERING

0:03:420:03:45

Ken Railings and Pam Short were dancing there that night.

0:03:550:03:59

Ken's always been a wonderful ambassador for ballroom dancing.

0:04:050:04:08

But I know that everyone there really thought it was Scott's turn.

0:04:150:04:19

Come on, number 100!

0:04:220:04:26

Come on, number 100!

0:04:260:04:28

CROWD GASPS

0:04:330:04:34

True, Scott and Liz became boxed in.

0:04:440:04:49

Piss off!

0:04:560:04:58

It was no excuse for what Scott did.

0:04:580:05:00

What the hell's going on?

0:05:090:05:11

He resorted to his own, flashy, crowd-pleasing steps.

0:05:130:05:16

Come on. Come on.

0:05:210:05:23

He forced me. The lady must follow.

0:05:230:05:27

Bet you never saw that before!

0:05:350:05:37

I keep asking myself, "Why?"

0:05:370:05:39

Did I do something wrong?

0:05:420:05:44

Did I fail him as a mother?

0:05:460:05:48

In front of Barry Fife!

0:05:500:05:52

I'll cut the music. Don't be bloody stupid!

0:06:040:06:06

To pick what was wrong with the steps, you must be a professional

0:06:400:06:45

like myself or Federation President Barry Fife.

0:06:450:06:50

Barry Fife!

0:06:500:06:51

You can dance any steps you like.

0:06:510:06:57

That doesn't mean you'll...WIN.

0:06:570:07:01

The winner is couple number 69, Ken Railings and Pam Short.

0:07:010:07:05

Ken and Pam are Southern Star Inter-regional titleholders,

0:07:050:07:10

and Putting on the Ritz, City and Country, and Round Robin champions,

0:07:100:07:18

and former three-times Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Amateur

0:07:180:07:22

Five Dance Latin American champions. Yes!

0:07:220:07:24

I've been dancing for two years.

0:07:300:07:32

I haven't got a partner yet.

0:07:320:07:34

It was great. They should've won.

0:07:340:07:38

Hi, Liz, I thought you should have won...

0:07:380:07:40

Sorry. ..Liz!

0:07:430:07:45

-Piss off!

-Liz...

0:07:450:07:47

Get away from me! I'm not dancing with you, all right?

0:07:470:07:49

I'm not dancing with you till you dance like you're supposed to!

0:07:490:07:53

# Let's do it

0:08:010:08:02

# Happy feet

0:08:020:08:03

# I've got those happy feet... #

0:08:030:08:07

One, two, three, four. Partner up.

0:08:070:08:10

# I've got those tappy-toes... #

0:08:100:08:13

Happy as Larry last night, they were.

0:08:130:08:17

I'm just asking you. What did you think of the steps?

0:08:170:08:20

I don't think! I don't give a shit about them - we lost!

0:08:200:08:23

Don't you worry about Barry. ..Spinning the girl out.

0:08:230:08:29

-Fran, you out of that apricot scrub?

-Nearly.

-I'll bring it AND toner. It's a special this week.

-Thanks.

0:08:290:08:36

Roll her in.

0:08:360:08:39

-I don't want us to end up like that drunk, Ken.

-Ken Railings is a ballroom king!

0:08:390:08:45

Good, Clarry! ..I've smoothed it over. When Les Kendall talks, Barry Fife listens.

0:08:450:08:52

I've got my happy face on today, Les.

0:08:520:08:56

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!

0:08:560:09:00

-Oh, my God!

-Oh, my God!

-Sorry, Mrs Hastings. I've tried!

0:09:000:09:06

But your son isn't even interested in winning at the Pan-Pacifics.

0:09:060:09:11

He and I are no longer partners.

0:09:110:09:14

-Hi, Liz.

-Aaaaaaah!

0:09:150:09:19

Vanessa!

0:09:240:09:25

Tango, please.

0:09:250:09:27

Oh, Vanessa!

0:09:270:09:29

Oh...

0:09:290:09:32

-Come on.

-The stupid idiot! The nightmare!

0:09:320:09:37

Ahhhh!

0:09:370:09:39

-Oh, my God, Shirley.

-Stay calm, Les. Stay calm.

0:09:390:09:43

Here he comes. ..Doug. Doug.

0:09:430:09:47

-Son, can I bend your ear for a tick?

-Not now, Dad.

0:09:470:09:51

Don't you speak to your father like that. He's trying to talk to you. ..Talk, Doug.

0:09:510:09:57

-Are we going to do that bogo pogo?

-Did you like how I danced?

-What?

0:10:080:10:15

-Did you like the way I danced?

-You didn't win.

-But did you like it?

-I dunno. Ready?

-What?

0:10:150:10:22

-To help us with the bogo pogo.

-How did I dance?!

0:10:220:10:27

I DON'T know.

0:10:270:10:30

Jesus, Wayne!

0:10:300:10:32

Hm-hm.

0:10:370:10:38

We had an agreement. ..Arms, Clarry.

0:10:380:10:41

-I'm sick of dancing somebody else's steps.

-The people who passed on those steps know more than you do!

0:10:410:10:50

-The audience didn't think so.

-The audience(!)

0:10:500:10:53

Forward on the heel, Fran. ..What do they know? Flashy choreography,

0:10:530:10:59

but where was your floorcraft? ..Arms, Clarry.

0:10:590:11:02

No energy directed into the floor, untidy feet...

0:11:020:11:07

Arms, Clarry! That won't win you the Pan-Pacific!

0:11:070:11:11

-Does he really think that'll win?

-He said what we dance is crap!

-What?

-And then he ripped her dress.

0:11:110:11:20

And you won't win without a partner.

0:11:200:11:24

Scott and Liz are still fighting. I'm not bothering. Happy face on today.

0:11:240:11:30

-Fran, you managed to upset Lizzie.

-I'd better go and apologise.

0:11:300:11:35

Go and beg forgiveness. You're nothing without her.

0:11:380:11:43

Remember, it takes two to tango.

0:11:430:11:45

You've a light in you. Let it shine.

0:11:450:11:49

Ah!

0:11:490:11:51

Right.

0:12:190:12:21

You've come to your senses.

0:12:390:12:41

NO! I don't want this. I don't want this!

0:12:430:12:48

-What DO you want?

-I'll tell you! I want Ken Railings to walk in and say,

0:12:480:12:55

"Pam broke both her legs. I want to dance with YOU!"

0:12:550:12:59

HORN BLARES AHHH!

0:12:590:13:02

Pam broke both her legs. I wanna dance with YOU.

0:13:120:13:16

That was unexpected!

0:13:160:13:19

Thank you very much. Time to go.

0:13:340:13:37

Chairs, please, Clarry. Broom, Natalie.

0:13:370:13:41

LIZZIE: Ken's got his own spa bath.

0:13:410:13:44

KEN: It's great for aching muscles.

0:13:440:13:46

Clarry, chairs!

0:13:500:13:52

Ken owns Spa-Arama.

0:13:520:13:56

-Wayne and I hope to do well.

-Oh?

0:13:590:14:02

Fran!

0:14:020:14:04

Wayne, come and meet Ken.

0:14:040:14:06

Kylie, feed the fish!

0:14:060:14:09

Doug, are you coming?

0:14:120:14:14

-He's my partner.

-Fiance. G'day.

0:14:140:14:18

Doug! Doug! Doug!

0:14:180:14:24

Doug! Doug, will you hurry up, please?!

0:14:240:14:28

Doug!

SHIRLEY CRIES

0:14:290:14:32

There, there, there. Where's that happy face? There, there.

0:14:350:14:41

SHIRLEY CARRIES ON CRYING NOISILY

0:14:420:14:47

(Let's go.)

0:14:510:14:54

Come on, Wayne.

0:14:540:14:57

-Don't worry, we're not going to give up yet.

-We'll find Scott a new partner.

0:14:570:15:02

-Oh, Les, he's my only son.

-I know. I know. Now, don't worry, love. Don't worry.

0:15:040:15:11

We'll start try-outs tomorrow.

0:15:110:15:14

Now here's Doug. He'll take you home.

0:15:160:15:18

Come on, Shirley.

0:15:200:15:22

< Good night, fishes.

0:15:220:15:23

-Good night, Uncle Les.

-Night-night.

0:15:230:15:26

Sleep tight. Off we go. Off we go.

0:15:260:15:29

Good...

0:15:290:15:33

Happy face!

0:15:330:15:34

Scottie, I... Scott!

0:15:400:15:45

You're still our number one. Now, we've got three weeks.

0:15:450:15:50

We'll start try-outs tomorrow.

0:15:500:15:53

We'll find you a new partner.

0:15:530:15:55

Yeah.

0:15:550:15:58

'To pick what was wrong with the steps, you'd have to be a professional, like myself.'

0:16:440:16:49

-That's good.

-What are you doing?

-I...

-How long have you been here?

0:18:190:18:25

Two years. Er...I was just looking for someone.

0:18:250:18:30

-Everyone's gone home.

-Yeah, I know.

0:18:300:18:32

It's just I've got this idea. Like... I mean... It's, er...

0:18:340:18:41

It's, er... What I'm trying to, er...

0:18:410:18:47

I want to dance with you.

0:18:500:18:52

What?

0:18:520:18:54

I want to dance with you. I want to dance with you YOUR way at the Pan-Pacifics.

0:18:540:19:01

At the Pan-Pacifics?

0:19:040:19:07

Dance my way at the Pan-Pacifics?

0:19:070:19:09

Yeah.

0:19:090:19:13

-You can't dance my way - you don't win.

-It's because you're overdoing it.

0:19:160:19:23

-If you kept it simpler and dance from the heart...

-What?

-..and had the right partner.

-I see.

0:19:230:19:30

-That's you, is it(?)

-When you dance your steps I understand how you feel, cos I make up my own steps.

0:19:300:19:38

-You make up your own steps?

-Yeah, and I'VE no partner.

-What are you carrying on about?

0:19:380:19:44

-You've been dancing with a girl for two years, haven't you?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:19:440:19:52

-But...

-You come up and say you want to dance non-Federation

0:19:520:19:57

-AND convince the judges, with only three weeks to train?

-Yeah.

0:19:570:20:04

-I don't think so.

-Just try me out.

0:20:040:20:07

-Go home.

-One hour!

-Don't!

-Just a chance!

0:20:070:20:11

You'll feel like an idiot tomorrow.

0:20:110:20:14

-Do you want to dance your own steps or not?

-It's none of your business.

-Do you?

0:20:140:20:20

Look. A beginner has no right to approach an Open amateur.

0:20:200:20:26

An Open amateur has no right

0:20:260:20:27

-to dance non-Federation steps, but you did.

-That's different.

0:20:270:20:32

How?!

0:20:320:20:33

You're the same as the rest! You're scared to give someone new a go.

0:20:330:20:39

They might be better than you are!

0:20:390:20:43

You're pathetic and gutless!

0:20:430:20:45

Vivir con miedo es como vivir a medias!

0:20:450:20:47

What's your name again?

0:20:590:21:01

-Fran.

-Yeah, Fran what?

0:21:010:21:07

Just Fran.

0:21:090:21:11

All right, then "just Fran", don't push me - rumba.

0:21:150:21:22

-Great(!) You can't even do a basic...

-You said one hour.

-One, TWO, three, four.

0:21:240:21:28

One, hold, TWO. One, hold, two, three. One, two, three.

0:21:280:21:35

..Three, four. One, two, three...

0:21:350:21:40

We're telling a story. The rumba's the dance of love. Look like you're in love.

0:21:400:21:46

That's it. Good.

0:21:460:21:48

Turn, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.

0:21:500:21:55

Good. That's it.

0:21:550:21:56

We'll do one basic, then a spin, then lunge.

0:21:590:22:02

And one, two and one, turn and... Oh.

0:22:050:22:08

One, turn and lunge.

0:22:080:22:11

One, turn and lunge.

0:22:110:22:13

OK.

0:22:130:22:14

Lunge, drag, hold, drag. One, two...

0:22:160:22:21

-I know...

-No, no, no, we'll go - one and two and...

0:22:210:22:27

-We could...

-Wait, wait.

0:22:270:22:30

Where did that come from?

0:22:410:22:43

It's a step I've been working on at home.

0:22:450:22:49

Show me.

0:22:540:22:57

Well...

0:22:570:23:00

She's got no body flight.

0:23:180:23:21

Good.

0:23:240:23:25

Stronger.

0:23:280:23:29

A bit of musicality, please!

0:23:420:23:46

Good. Good. Yeah.

0:23:500:23:53

She's terrible!

0:24:080:24:11

They're either too tall, too short or too tubby - you know, fat.

0:24:110:24:15

It's as if he doesn't want to find anyone who's compatible.

0:24:150:24:18

Now, this one's Island Fantasy. That's 11.95.

0:24:210:24:26

Now, see, that's YOU.

0:24:260:24:29

He was to help me and Vanessa with a bogo pogo step but didn't show up!

0:24:290:24:35

With a guy like Scott it could be anything - sexuality, drugs.

0:24:350:24:40

He's obviously lost it, sweetie. He's all washed up.

0:24:400:24:43

-No.

-Sorry.

0:24:580:25:00

Take a break.

0:25:000:25:02

How are the try-outs going?

0:25:080:25:10

-Good. Really good.

-Mm.

0:25:130:25:17

-Your mum and Les were really great dancers, weren't they?

-Yeah.

0:25:190:25:24

-They don't talk about it very much.

-No. It's because of Dad.

0:25:350:25:40

Look, Fran...

0:25:450:25:48

DOOR SLAMS

0:25:500:25:53

HE MOUTHS

0:26:010:26:04

HE HUMS

0:26:090:26:11

-What's he doing?

-Oh, he's always hiding away doing something.

0:26:370:26:40

RUMBA MUSIC

0:26:420:26:46

Can you dance without those?

0:26:520:26:54

Might help.

0:26:590:27:00

Come on, we've got work to do.

0:27:010:27:05

# Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick

0:27:130:27:18

# And think of you

0:27:180:27:20

# Caught up in circles Confusion is nothing new

0:27:200:27:27

# Flashback, warm nights Almost left behind

0:27:270:27:35

# Suitcase of memories Time after...

0:27:350:27:40

# Sometimes you picture me I'm walking too far ahead

0:27:400:27:48

# You're calling to me I can't hear what you've said

0:27:480:27:55

TOGETHER: # Then you say, "Go slow" I fall behind

0:27:550:28:03

# The second hand unwinds... #

0:28:030:28:06

CHA-CHA MUSIC

0:28:060:28:10

# ..If you're lost you can look and you will find me

0:28:320:28:37

# If you fall, I will catch you I'll be waiting

0:28:400:28:44

# Time after time. #

0:28:440:28:48

Again.

0:28:480:28:50

It was his year! It was his year! It was his year! It was his year! It was his YEAR!

0:29:050:29:12

It was Scott's year, Luke. He threw it all away. You wouldn't, Lukey? No.

0:29:120:29:19

- Les'll find a partner. - There's no time, Doug!

0:29:190:29:24

She'd have to be a champion without a partner(!) >

0:29:240:29:29

Why don't you and Mrs Hastings go in the Over-35s?

0:29:290:29:34

I don't like competitions. He doesn't. Have a go!

0:29:340:29:39

SHIRLEY: Doug, stop that! Stop shuffling, you stupid man!

0:29:390:29:46

I can't bear it.

0:29:490:29:51

I just can't bear it. Don't cry, Mum. Scott'll find a new partner.

0:29:510:29:57

He will.

0:29:590:30:01

# If you're lost You can look and you will find me

-You're ready.

-What for?

-I want you and me to try out for Les tomorrow night.

0:30:250:30:29

For the State?

-..vivir a medias.

0:31:000:31:08

-Vivir con miedo es como vivir a medias.

-Yeah.

0:31:080:31:13

To live with fear is like to half-live. I mean, is a life half lived.

0:31:140:31:20

-Oh, yeah. Like a proverb.

-Yeah, sort of.

0:31:200:31:25

A life half lived.

0:31:250:31:27

I like it.

TRAIN WHISTLE IN BACKGROUND

0:31:300:31:34

-See you at the State tomorrow.

-Should we do the rumba?

-Les'll love it.

0:31:360:31:42

I do too. The rumba, I mean.

0:31:420:31:47

Fran, you know what I said about the rumba being, you know,

0:31:500:31:55

-the dance of love?

-Yeah.

0:31:550:31:59

-Well...

-Yeah?

-It's pretend.

0:31:590:32:02

-You just pretend to be in love. It's not real.

-Oh, no. I didn't...

0:32:020:32:07

-SOUND OF BREAKING GLASS

-Are you all right?

-You'd better go. See you tomorrow.

-OK.

TRANSLATION FROM SPANISH:

0:32:290:32:32

'The State Championships, featuring the magical Mr Nathan Starkey and Miss Tina Sparkle!'

0:32:530:33:00

BARRY FIFE: I want Tina to be Scott's new partner, Les.

0:33:000:33:05

Tina Sparkle?!

0:33:050:33:08

That's right. Bloody Nathan's going to announce his retirement tonight.

0:33:080:33:14

Both are without partners. They should be seen together.

0:33:140:33:19

But Scott's caused chat down our way!

0:33:190:33:23

That's why he needs the right partner!

0:33:230:33:27

That's right, Merv.

0:33:270:33:30

-Let's not chuck the babies out with the bathtub.

-I'm 100% behind it.

0:33:300:33:36

Francisca!

0:33:440:33:46

Well, gentlemen, let's make this a bloody good festival.

0:33:510:33:56

Oh, er, Les, just a tick.

0:33:580:34:01

This is just wonderful, Barry.

0:34:010:34:03

He doesn't deserve it, Les.

0:34:030:34:06

-I've been fielding phone calls all week about the steps Scott danced at the festival.

-He's changed.

0:34:060:34:14

We both know where he was heading, foolish boy. But Scott's got his second chance.

0:34:140:34:21

Let's not forget that a Pan-Pacific champion becomes a hero,

0:34:240:34:30

a guiding light to all dancers, someone who'll set the right example.

0:34:300:34:35

You've been drinking!

0:34:370:34:39

-Bullshit!

-You bloody have!

0:34:390:34:42

I love dancing. And I'm not going to let what we've fought for all these years be destroyed.

0:34:420:34:50

Oh, look at that. Go, 71!

0:34:500:34:53

Go, 71!

0:34:530:34:54

-You're drunk!

-Bullshit.

-You bloody are!

0:34:540:34:58

Ken, come on!

0:34:580:35:02

Get your head up!

0:35:020:35:05

< Kennie! Come on, 54! > < Go for it, 69! Kennie, you old bum.

0:35:060:35:12

Do you two know anything about this girl Scott's trying out with?

0:35:150:35:18

Who is it, Mum?

0:35:180:35:19

I'd be the last to know! Scott says we'll never guess.

0:35:190:35:23

-Clarry, have you seen Fran?

-No, maybe she got a lift with Natalie. It's our first big comp tonight.

0:35:250:35:32

-Do YOU know anything about her?

-News travels fast!

0:35:330:35:37

-Who is it?

-Sourpusses, look.

0:35:370:35:41

"Three times Pan-Pacific champion Tina Sparkle is hunting for a new partner.

0:35:410:35:47

"Nathan Starkey will be retiring.

0:35:470:35:50

"Their farewell exhibition will be at this weekend's State Finals.

0:35:500:35:55

-"Who will snaffle Tina?"

-Scott Hastings, that's who!

0:35:550:36:00

Oh, my God, Tina Sparkle! Yes!

0:36:000:36:04

-Will she dance with him?

-Right after her exhibition, she'll hop into the social dance with him.

0:36:040:36:11

'The next event will be the Mother and Son Gypsy Dance.'

0:36:120:36:16

It's an answer to our prayers. And she photographs well.

0:36:160:36:21

Oh, Frannie, isn't it exciting?!

0:36:210:36:24

-A partner! Everything's turned out wonderfully!

-Do you think so?

0:36:240:36:29

Les and I are beside ourselves!

0:36:290:36:33

-Well, I'm very happy too.

-Of course you are, luvvy.

0:36:330:36:38

(You've been using that Buf-Puf.)

0:36:380:36:40

-If he doesn't hurry up, I might jump in myself.

-Mr Kendall!

-Ah.

0:36:400:36:46

-Oh, Mum, I was going to tell you...

-Very funny, you little devil.

0:36:460:36:50

Well, we know all about it. Fantastic, mate.

0:36:500:36:54

-You shoulda told us.

-I was first!

0:36:540:36:58

-You haven't even seen us dance.

-You two were made for each other!

0:36:580:37:02

I find it difficult to get the films now. It's all video, video, video.

0:37:060:37:11

For goodness' sake, Doug, she's not interested. She's beside herself.

0:37:110:37:16

Who would have thought it, eh? Our Scott dancing with someone like Tina Sparkle.

0:37:160:37:22

'Yes! The fairy princess of the dancefloor, Miss Tina Sparkle...'

0:37:220:37:29

-Tina Sparkle.

-Fran, I...

0:37:290:37:32

'..and Mr Nathan Starkey!'

0:37:320:37:35

Oh, isn't Tina beautiful?!

0:37:350:37:38

'Ladies and gentlemen, this evening, dancing for the last time,

0:37:380:37:43

'Mr Nathan Starkey and Miss Tina Sparkle. What a great partnership...

0:37:430:37:50

'and what a shame! - as they dance for you the Fruity Rumba.'

0:37:500:37:57

-She's a funny girl.

-Be back in a minute.

0:37:590:38:03

'The beginning of a lovely shuffle.

0:38:030:38:07

'Yes, give them some applause. Welcome them.'

0:38:070:38:11

Watch it, Fran-gipani! I'm the one driving the engine!

0:38:140:38:18

Well, what's that in the Thermos?

0:38:180:38:21

-Hi, Scott.

-Have you seen Fran?

-Fran who?

0:38:210:38:27

Cheers(!)

0:38:300:38:32

'It's a double...! Oh, into a quick whip split. Beaut!

0:38:320:38:37

'Ah, yes, that'll go down a treat with the judges at the Pan-Pacific this year.'

0:38:400:38:48

BOTH: Do you know where Scott went?

0:38:480:38:52

-Excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.

-Excuse me.

-Excuse me.

0:38:520:38:58

'All these steps can be found in Barry Fife's brilliant video Dance To Win, priced at 29.95.

'The president, Mr Barry Fife, will be signing copies of his brilliant video tonight in the foyer...

0:39:080:39:15

'Oh, a classic twilight lift.

0:39:210:39:24

'Oh, look at this!'

0:39:280:39:32

Fran, I didn't know anything about that.

0:39:360:39:39

Are you going to dance with Tina?

0:39:390:39:43

I...

0:39:440:39:47

She's the champion.

0:39:480:39:50

I think you should.

0:39:510:39:53

She's your style. You really suit each other.

0:39:530:39:56

I've been working towards winning the Pan-Pacific since I was six years old.

0:39:560:40:00

'Beautiful...'

0:40:020:40:06

I'm sure you'll win.

0:40:160:40:17

I could never do that.

MUSIC: "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" by Doris Day

0:40:340:40:38

# You won't admit you love me

0:40:410:40:44

# And so how am I ever to know?

0:40:440:40:51

# You always tell me

0:40:510:40:53

# "Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps"

0:40:530:40:56

# A million times I've asked you

0:40:590:41:02

# And then I ask you over again

0:41:020:41:08

# You only answer "Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps"

0:41:080:41:15

# If you can't make your mind up We'll never get started

0:41:170:41:24

# And I don't want to wind up

0:41:260:41:29

# Being parted, broken-hearted

0:41:290:41:34

# So if you really love me Say yes

0:41:340:41:40

# But if you don't, dear, confess

0:41:400:41:45

# And please don't tell me

0:41:450:41:48

# "Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps"

0:41:480:41:52

# "Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps"

0:42:060:42:10

# If you can't make your mind up we'll never get started

0:42:120:42:20

# And I don't want to wind up... #

0:42:200:42:23

It's the inconceivable sight of Scott dancing with Fran.

0:42:230:42:28

Hm.

0:42:280:42:31

(Check it out.)

0:42:310:42:33

# If you really love me, say yes

0:42:330:42:35

# But if you don't, dear, confess

0:42:350:42:39

# And please don't tell me "Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps." #

0:42:390:42:46

You're kidding!

0:42:490:42:52

(Fran.)

0:42:530:42:55

-'Give them a big hand...'

-Quick, Tina's coming.

0:42:550:43:00

Give her a hand.

0:43:000:43:03

-I'm not going...

-I don't want to hear it!

0:43:030:43:07

'Tina'll be dancing with a brand-new partner.'

0:43:070:43:13

Tina, wonderful, wonderful... the fruit, everything.

0:43:130:43:18

Les, Fife wants Scott at the servery NOW.

0:43:180:43:22

What's going on? A silly accident.

0:43:220:43:26

-Mum...

-Scott, Tina's here now.

0:43:260:43:29

-Tina. ..Mum...

-You need to have a chat with President Fife.

0:43:290:43:34

Don't keep him waiting. We'll be back for the Social. Take your time getting changed. Come on, Scott.

0:43:340:43:42

Tough routine, Teens. Ugh.

0:43:420:43:45

I thought that was good.

0:43:470:43:50

-Come on.

-Mrs Hastings...

-What did you think you were doing?

0:43:500:43:55

There's obviously been things going on, but we'll fix that nasty bruise.

0:43:550:44:01

-Then it would be best if you went home.

-But...

0:44:010:44:05

You're a beginner. What were you doing?

0:44:050:44:10

-And you're clumsy.

-Scott wanted...

0:44:100:44:13

Well, of course Scott would SAY that.

0:44:130:44:16

But you don't want to ruin his chances, do you?

0:44:190:44:22

..Do you?

0:44:230:44:26

You can see it would be best if you just went home

0:44:260:44:31

and forgot about this...

0:44:310:44:34

can't you, Frannie?

0:44:340:44:36

Can't you?

0:44:360:44:38

Yes, Mrs Hastings.

0:44:380:44:41

Les's lined you up with Tina. Don't blow it or there won't be a mark low enough at the Pan-Pacific.

0:44:430:44:51

-Comprendez?

-Barry's thinking of your wellbeing.

0:44:510:44:55

-If everybody made up their own steps...

-You'd be out of a job!

-H-He's excited at dancing with Tina.

0:44:550:45:03

He doesn't know what he's saying. ..Scott!

0:45:030:45:07

We can't expect Tina to wait all night. I know.

0:45:070:45:12

-You look terrific.

-What was that about?

0:45:140:45:18

-With Fran?

-Fran? Fran? Fran.

0:45:180:45:24

Fran. Wasn't she that girl that...?

0:45:240:45:25

-Well, here we all are.

-Where is she?

-Who?

-Fran.

0:45:250:45:29

-SHIRLEY: Who?

-The girl that fell.

0:45:290:45:32

-She went home. Don't worry.

-What?!

0:45:320:45:35

-She went shopping.

-No, to make a phone call.

-You're pathetic!

0:45:350:45:40

-What's wrong with you?

-I've been trying to find out.

0:45:400:45:44

What IS so wrong with the way I dance?!

0:45:440:45:47

Come on now, Scott! Tina's waiting.

0:45:530:45:56

You're all so scared!

0:45:560:45:59

Is he dancing with Tina or not?

0:45:590:46:02

-Sorry, Tina.

-No, Scott! ..Wayne.

-Scott...!

0:46:020:46:07

What's going on?!

0:46:070:46:09

Care for a dance, Teens?

0:46:210:46:22

You danced impressively today! Do you think so? But try a bogo pogo in your samba.

0:46:270:46:34

It's terrific coming out of a twist. Actually...

0:46:340:46:38

It's in me video. You got one? Er... Take this one.

0:46:380:46:43

Thanks, Mr Fife. Scott's not the only one with a future...Wayne?

0:46:430:46:50

Yeah, Wayne. I've seen his bad influence before.

0:46:500:46:54

One bad egg could rot the whole barrel.

0:46:540:46:58

Know what I mean? Mm?

0:47:000:47:02

(Fran.)

0:47:250:47:27

-Fran.

-What are you doing here?

0:47:270:47:31

-I want to dance with you.

-Go away. I'll get in trouble.

0:47:310:47:35

-What happened to a life lived in fear and all that?

-It's no use.

0:47:380:47:43

You were right. I'm a beginner.

0:47:430:47:46

-I'll never be like them.

-I don't want you to be. You're BETTER.

0:47:480:47:53

Fran, I want to dance with you at the Pan-Pacifics.

0:47:530:47:58

We won't win.

0:47:580:48:02

I just want to dance our steps.

0:48:020:48:05

Francisca!

0:48:080:48:11

-Quien es este?

-Es mi... my dancing partner.

-You go now!

0:48:140:48:20

-Go! Go!

-No!

-Go now!

0:48:200:48:23

Sacate! Sacate! Fuera de agui! Fuera.

0:48:230:48:27

We just danced together, that's ALL.

0:48:270:48:30

What sort of dance do you dance so late at night?

0:48:300:48:34

Paso Doble.

0:48:380:48:40

-Paso Doble? Tu bailas Pasa Doble?

-What?

0:48:400:48:46

-You dance the Paso Doble?

-..Yeah.

0:48:460:48:50

Show. Show.

0:48:500:48:54

Yes, we want to see this Paso Doble.

0:48:560:48:59

Queremos ver este Paso Doble, verdad? MUSICIANS: Si, vamos!

Hey!

0:53:300:53:32

Muy bien. Muy bien, chico.

0:54:190:54:23

Have you eaten? There's chops in the fridge.

0:54:320:54:36

-No, I'm fine.

-How could you?!

0:54:360:54:39

How could you do that to Tina? She's a Pan-Pacific champion!

0:54:400:54:46

-Mum...

-You apologise!

-I won't be dancing with her.

0:54:460:54:51

-What?!

-I'm dancing with Fran.

-FRAN!

0:54:510:54:54

Doug, he won't dance with Tina!

0:54:540:54:57

- I heard. - Do something, you silly man!

0:54:570:55:02

-Why do you pick on Dad?

-How dare you?!

0:55:020:55:05

-The sacrifices we've made for you - the money, the time...

-Shut up!

0:55:050:55:11

What about Les? He's taught you everything!

0:55:110:55:15

-I'm bored with that.

-I don't believe this!

0:55:150:55:19

I have been with your father for 25 years. Do I get bored? Of course!

0:55:190:55:25

-Stick with your roles and they bring their rewards.

-What?

0:55:250:55:30

-Winning the Pan-Pacific!

-I don't care about that!

0:55:300:55:34

Oh! >

0:55:340:55:35

-He doesn't care about winning it?

-That's what he said.

0:55:370:55:41

He just wants to dance his steps. That's great for the studio(!)

0:55:410:55:46

Don't let your imagination run away with this. It's true, Mrs H!

0:55:460:55:50

Like President Fife says, one bad egg can rot the barrel. You're over-reacting!

0:55:500:55:57

Nothing terrible is going to happen!

0:55:570:55:59

Agggghhh!

0:55:590:56:02

What?

0:56:020:56:05

Ken dropped me.

0:56:090:56:12

Oh!

0:56:120:56:14

People will laugh at me.

0:56:240:56:25

-No.

-Yes. You've just got not to be scared.

0:56:360:56:43

All right?

0:56:500:56:52

You remind me of your mother, you know? I'm very proud of you.

0:56:560:57:01

And if your mum was here...

0:57:010:57:05

..she will be very proud too.

0:57:080:57:10

Francisca. Fran, ven aqui.

0:57:140:57:16

It's too jazzy. Don't throw away your energy.

0:57:170:57:22

See. Keep the focus between you.

0:57:220:57:24

The face - strong.

0:57:280:57:30

Uno, dos, tres. Bien.

0:57:360:57:38

Bien!

0:57:390:57:41

Bien!

0:57:410:57:42

Muy bien, Fran. Very good.

0:57:460:57:49

Vamos a bailar. Los dos.

0:57:490:57:51

Uno, dos y tres.

New steps! New steps! New steps!

0:58:210:58:24

There are NO new steps!

0:58:240:58:26

I unequivocally state,

0:58:300:58:32

there are no new steps for the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix! Comprendez?

0:58:320:58:36

This is getting out of hand.

0:58:400:58:41

0:58:410:58:43

0:58:430:58:45

Something's got to be done about this.

0:58:480:58:50

< If you can't dance a step, you can't teach it.

0:58:550:58:58

If you can't teach it, then we might as well pack up and go home.

0:58:580:59:01

With young Liz available again you've a chance to get your status quo vadis back.

0:59:010:59:06

-We've tried everything.

-Except the truth.

0:59:060:59:10

What do you mean?

0:59:100:59:12

We go back too far to beat about the bush. I know we agreed that the past should be left in the past.

0:59:140:59:21

But it's about time that lad learned some home truths about where this kind of thing can lead.

0:59:210:59:25

1:03:061:03:07

Wayne!

1:03:091:03:10

Wayne's not here.

1:03:151:03:17

I hope you don't mind.

1:03:181:03:19

We know we can't win, but we're going to dance anyway.

1:03:211:03:25

So let's not waste each other's time.

1:03:251:03:27

-He was the most beautiful dancer I'd ever seen.

-What?

1:03:321:03:36

He could've been the greatest champion of them all, but like you he threw it all away.

1:03:361:03:43

-Who?

-The man in this photograph.

1:03:431:03:46

What are you talking about?

1:03:481:03:49

I'm talking about the man who was potentially the greatest ballroom dancer this country's ever seen.

1:03:511:03:58

I'm talking about your father - Doug Hastings.

1:03:581:04:03

Come on. Dad doesn't even dance!

1:04:031:04:07

You think it's funny, do you? Do you?

1:04:071:04:09

I worshipped that man. We all did. He was an inspiration to us all.

1:04:091:04:15

But that's Les. LES was Mum's partner.

1:04:221:04:24

No, Scott. That's Doug.

1:04:261:04:29

I know to look at him today it's hard to believe, but once...once...

1:04:311:04:35

Ah, once...

1:04:431:04:44

Doug and Shirley Hastings were the best bloody couple this country had ever seen.

1:04:481:04:54

DISTANT CHEERS AND COMMENTARY

1:04:541:04:56

Couple number 100.

1:05:071:05:08

You know, Scott, your dad, he had it all -

1:05:101:05:14

looks, charm, confidence. He had everything. EVERYTHING.

1:05:141:05:17

My God, he was MAGNIFICENT!

1:05:221:05:24

Grrrrrr.

1:05:241:05:27

SAMBA MUSIC

1:05:271:05:30

Samba, cha-cha, rumba, jive - he could do anything.

1:05:301:05:35

Brilliant!

1:05:351:05:38

All the girls loved him.

1:05:381:05:39

My goodness, he showed those chickies a thing or two.

1:05:391:05:43

I was your dad's best mate in those days.

1:05:471:05:51

We used to scruff it together. You know, screw it around.

1:05:511:05:56

Les would come along, of course. The three of us together - the old gang.

1:05:561:06:02

We were a bunch of old funsters. We all wanted to win, of course.

1:06:021:06:09

But with your mum as your dad's partner, we had no chance.

1:06:091:06:13

They were magnificent!

1:06:151:06:18

# Take a look at me I'm yesterday's hero

1:06:191:06:23

# Yesterday's hero

1:06:231:06:25

# That's all I be-e-e-e-e. #

1:06:251:06:29

They had it all before them - a perfect career.

1:06:301:06:34

And then...

1:06:341:06:35

..EVERYTHING changed.

1:06:371:06:39

Your dad became - I don't know -

1:06:411:06:43

self-obsessed, focused on himself. A selfish dancer.

1:06:431:06:49

I didn't know what to make of it. He started doing his own thing.

1:06:491:06:55

Crazy, wild, crowd-pleasing steps.

1:06:551:06:57

A bit like yourself, Scott, but always...

1:07:011:07:04

strictly ballroom.

1:07:041:07:07

Shirley put up with it for as long as she bloody well could.

1:07:081:07:12

But it was only a matter of time before she eventually cracked.

1:07:161:07:20

I tried to warn him, but no, he wouldn't listen.

1:07:201:07:24

He'd lost touch with reality.

1:07:271:07:30

He thought they could win the Pan-Pacific dancing his own steps.

1:07:301:07:34

Of course, they lost.

1:07:361:07:38

I was lucky enough to win that year. The shock sent Doug crazy.

1:07:381:07:43

He vowed he'd never dance again.

1:07:431:07:46

For a while there we didn't think he'd pull through.

1:07:461:07:49

Slowly, little by little, day by day,

1:07:491:07:52

he managed to crawl back from that dark pit of despair

1:07:521:07:56

and tack together some semblance of a life.

1:07:561:08:00

When you were born, Doug found a reason to live.

1:08:081:08:11

He vowed that one day, you'd win the trophy that he could never win.

1:08:131:08:19

That's why I've been so hard on you, Scott.

1:08:191:08:21

For Doug to see you so close and go the same way he went would be too much for him to bear.

1:08:211:08:28

I think that'd kill him.

1:08:281:08:30

I managed to save this as a souvenir.

1:08:321:08:36

Doug got rid of everything else.

1:08:391:08:42

Don't tell anybody I've got it.

1:08:421:08:44

Why...didn't anyone tell me?

1:08:501:08:52

Doug destroyed your mother's career,

1:08:541:08:57

made her keep it from you.

1:08:571:09:00

Your father's a proud man.

1:09:001:09:02

He wouldn't want me to do this, but I'm begging you -

1:09:021:09:07

dance with Liz and win the Pan-Pacific once, just once for Doug.

1:09:071:09:10

He's suffered enough, Scott.

1:09:121:09:14

Don't you think he deserves a little happiness?

1:09:141:09:18

Of course, it's up to you. You do what you think's best.

1:09:181:09:23

You'll make the right decision.

1:09:311:09:32

I know at times it's been confusing for you, Scott.

I speak for the studio when I say by putting trust in the Federation you're doing the right thing.

1:12:281:12:35

I think that'll be reflected in the results of the big one yet to come - the Open Latin Final.

1:12:351:12:43

We're right behind you, boy.

1:12:431:12:45

- Can I bend your ear for a tick? - Doug!! He has to get ready!

1:13:001:13:05

I must get to the scrutineers' table. Go for it, boy!

1:13:051:13:08

-You go back to the ball point!

It's the bogo pogo you suggested.

1:13:461:13:49

- Did I? - You were to show it to us.

1:13:491:13:54

- Bit of a hurry. - Know my partner?

1:13:541:13:59

Wow! Hello, sweetie.

1:13:591:14:02

Having a bit of trouble with the old bogo pogo? Go down one heel ball.

1:14:021:14:08

Pull the weight up into the chest, puffing it out proud, then a quick syncopating two and three and four.

1:14:161:14:19

Got to run. Good luck for tonight, kids.

1:14:191:14:23

-Son, can I bend...?

-Not now, Dad.

1:14:231:14:25

-What happened to "a life lived in fear"?

-Fran!

1:14:511:14:55

You really are a gutless wonder!

1:14:551:14:57

-The reason...

-I don't want to hear.

1:14:571:15:01

-Listen!

-No!

-It's hard for me too.

-Hard!

1:15:011:15:05

Think how hard it's been for ME to get you to dance with me in the first place.

1:16:251:16:29

-I have always regretted...

-..dancing your own steps at the Pan-Pacific. I KNOW.

1:16:291:16:36

I'm not going to make that mistake.

1:16:361:16:38

I never danced at the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix.

1:16:381:16:43

-Barry told me you lost it dancing your own steps.

-Barry?!

1:16:431:16:48

Your year, Ken. Just get on the floor, go through the motions and it's in the bag.

1:16:481:16:54

Hastings' credibility will be shot.

1:16:541:16:58

I'll just go and polish the trophy. Thanks, Mr Fife.

1:16:581:17:04

-Barry convinced her.

-Who?

1:17:041:17:07

'Couple 100 - Scott Hastings and Liz Holt.'

Your mother.

1:17:111:17:14

He's been called, you silly man!

1:17:141:17:16

Wayne, we're being called. It's none of our business.

1:17:161:17:23

'Couple number 176 - Jonathan French and Emily Waters.' (Les!)

1:17:231:17:28

Here, use this.

1:17:421:17:47

-What?

-I never danced here. Shut up!

1:17:471:17:52

-Barry convinced your mother to dance with LES.

-What?!

1:17:521:17:56

-Don't listen!

-Why didn't you dance with Dad?

-His steps! We'd have lost.

1:17:561:18:01

You lost anyway. You should have stuck by me.

1:18:011:18:06

I did it for you. It cost us our dream.

1:18:061:18:09

Barry convinced me our dancing career was on the line.

1:18:091:18:14

We'd never have been able to teach.

1:18:141:18:16

I couldn't throw that away on a dream! We had to survive.

1:18:361:18:43

Don't listen to him, Scott. Get on that floor. You can win.

1:18:431:18:47

Win.

1:18:471:18:49

It was the dancing that mattered. SHIRLEY: Don't listen. It's YOUR day.

1:18:491:18:55

We should have put that first!

1:18:551:18:59

We were scared. We walked away. We lived our lives in fear!

1:18:591:19:02

No!

Romantic comedy. Scandalising the staid world of regional ballroom dancing in Australia, spirited Scott Hastings is determined to devise his own steps. However, departing from tradition alienates those closest to him, including his partner, his mother and the Dance Federation's hardline president. Only disregarded beginner Fran is willing to devote herself to helping Scott perform his exciting choreography - though he proves less than grateful for her aid.
