Runaway

1 [SHELLS' "GOLD" PLAYING] I'm scared of the long nights And the darkness [ZOE] The world looks like it did yesterday.
I've bared [ZOE] But everything is wrong, and I have to make it right.
I messed up.
[NEIGHING] I know.
I let James get in my head, and I lost sight of us.
But Meredith is coming today.
We have to get over this.
Or she'll take you away.
No matter what you're doin' No matter what you're playin' It's no matter what you're sayin' 'Cause we're doing it all the same No matter where you are Or where you're coming from Put your hand on your heart Don't wait Yeah, you know that I, we, me, us We're doing it all the same No matter where you are Or where you're coming from Put your hand on your heart Don't wait Yeah, you know that I, we, me, us We're doing it all the same [VOCALIZING] [ROSIE] Zoe.
I made you some breakfast.
It's unhealthy, just the way you like it.
Zoe.
Zoe.
Zoe! Hey, Becky.
Have you seen Zoe? Probably doing team stuff, like everyone else around here.
No.
No one's seen her.
She's not at home, not here.
Her bed hasn't been slept in.
- Maybe she turned invisible.
- Not helping.
[BECKY] Let's try the tack room.
- Or maybe not.
I'll call her.
- I've been calling her all morning.
- [PHONE BUZZING] - I told you she was invisible.
- Zoe, show yourself.
- [BUZZING CONTINUES] She left her phone.
She's gone.
She can't do this to me.
I'm the runaway in this family.
- Oh.
[CHUCKLES] - Oh.
Sorry.
[LAUGHS] - I remember you being a better dancer.
- Try it with a bale of straw.
- Let me give you a hand.
- Oh, thanks.
Here.
The, uh, course is nowhere near finished.
Oh.
That's okay.
Holloway are loaning us some jumps.
Ah.
How very, uh, friendly of them.
Everyone knows today is an opportunity to psych each other out.
This year, we're taking Holloway down.
Thank you for believing in Bright Fields enough to train us.
I, uh, wouldn't be here if I didn't think we could win.
Besides, you and I make a great team.
What's Mia smiling at? Her best friend? Former best friend.
Mia only exposed Callum because she cares about you.
I know, but it's easier to be mad at her than to admit that I was an idiot.
You weren't the idiot.
Look, he was.
Time to think about something else.
One last practice before Friendlies? - Callum's gonna be there.
- So? Just imagine he's got a giant foot for a face.
Big Ugly Foot-Face.
Does that help? [SIGHS] You call this punctual? You call this a stables? Chairs in the paddock, jumps in the far field.
Pin will show you where the muckrakes are.
Well, the yard's not gonna clean itself.
Welcome to Bright Fields.
- Can't imagine why you left.
- Can't imagine why you stayed.
Let's not play games, Mia.
This is basically the un-Friendlies.
Gonna destroy you at Junior Nationals.
And today's gonna prove it.
All today's gonna prove is how little a chance you stand against us.
- We'll see.
- [BECKY] Mia? - Mia.
- We have to crush them.
Get the team together for a debrief.
Now.
We may have a slight problemo.
- If Bob's given Firefly nits again - Worse than that.
Nice handiwork.
No, you really are multi-talented.
There's carpentry, trespassing intimidation.
- You got my message, then? - I did.
And I've got one back.
It's proof of who you really are.
Bright Fields would be interested to know that their fancy trainer is no better than a stable boy.
Don't you? Anyway, I've been thinking.
I would like you to quit your job and leave the island for good.
- Would you now? - Yes.
Uh, James, we have a small Zoe situation.
Shouldn't you be with your teammates, preparing to be humiliated? Hmm.
No.
I'd rather stay.
James has something he, uh, wants to tell you about his future here.
Yes, I do.
- Gaby's my sister.
- [MIA] What? But she's so awful.
Not her fault.
After our parents died, we were put into foster care.
I was sent to a good home.
Gaby wasn't.
- She's been jealous of me ever since.
- That's not true.
And now she's jealous of my new home here at Bright Fields.
She came here, threatening to tell lies about me.
He is the liar.
Look.
I don't know how you do things at Holloway, but we stick together.
Come on, James.
Nice try, sis.
Looks like I'm not going anywhere.
What are you doing here? Thought you were just back for the weekend.
- Need to get my time down.
- Shouldn't you do that at the academy? Shouldn't you be with your team? Mr.
Perfect! Get over here.
You too, Cheekbones.
Riding practice is over.
My sister's missing.
Come on.
Well, maybe she needed some space.
[BECKY] Maybe she's "ex-horsted"? Ex-horsted? Get it? It's, like, the best kind of tired.
She's trying to embarrass me and James.
Guys, it doesn't matter why she's gone.
- I wanna know if she's okay.
- [MIA] Rosie's right.
Whatever lame reason Zoe had for doing this, she's one of us.
Bright Fields look after their own.
We also need her to help us crush Holloway at Friendlies.
I'll check the beach.
She goes there with Raven.
- Why is he here? He's not one of us.
- Neither are you.
Will you two stop? Check the beach together.
Then the pier.
Susie and I can go.
I could check the woods near the Wrecker's Cove with Rosie.
I should stay.
Someone ought to tell James what's going on.
It should be me.
Don't worry, Rosie.
We'll find her.
We have to.
[ZOE] So, Raven, this, believe it or not, is the Bright Fields arena.
[NEIGHING] Remember our first lesson? Marcus made us walk around this entire arena.
Just the two of us, getting to know each other.
I thought we could try that again.
See? This is nice, right? If I let you go, you're just gonna end up three miles in that direction.
[NEIGHING] I guess I guess this place has bad memories, too.
Okay, let's try something else.
I'm not giving up on us.
[BEN] Zoe! [ROSIE] Zoe! [BECKY] Zoe! We are totally going to find Zoe before Susie and Jade.
And win.
Not that it's a competition.
But it is.
Wait.
Didn't we look here already? No.
Bob's tracking Zoe's scent.
- Right, Ben? - Well, um That is Zoe's sock.
You said get a sock.
Whose sock is this? Please don't tell me that it's yours.
Are you serious? Zoe's out there, she needs me, and you and Bob spent the last two hours tracking you? Great.
I'm sorry.
I was just trying to Help! - Ben.
- You okay? I'm fine.
Looks like some kind of badger trap.
That's not a badger trap.
[DOOR CREAKS] They were here.
So what? You want a prize for being right? This isn't a competition.
We both want the same thing.
To find Zoe.
- Where would they have gone next? - You tell me, you're the expert.
There are worse things than getting kicked out of the academy.
Congratulations.
You figured out my big secret.
Except I wasn't thrown out.
I quit.
- Why? - I didn't make the first team.
Barely made the second.
They called me Island Boy.
- Maybe we're more alike than we think.
- Maybe.
- We both made Zoe run away.
- Zoe didn't run away because of us.
This is about Raven.
Are you coming? Island Boy.
[BEN] How far back does it go? I've seen this movie, and it doesn't end well for anyone.
Guys? Come on.
[BECKY] You don't think this could be? [BOTH] The smugglers' tunnels! I knew we'd find them.
It was just a matter of time.
Yeah, which means we're breathing in 400 years of dust, and Zoe's not even here.
The treasure might be here.
Could be buried.
No, Ben.
We're on a Zoe mission.
- Zoe first.
Treasure later.
- Wonder what this does.
[GASPS] [ROSIE] And now we know.
Help! Help! Mom! Oh, there you are.
Ready for the Friendlies? Yes, of course.
It's a big day for Bright Fields.
You know what we say about the Friendlies Um, ride together, ride forever.
- Why are you acting weird? - It's just nerves.
I'm a little hungry.
I have two daughters.
I can spot a lie a mile away.
Okay.
Um Zoe's run off.
This message is for my sister, Zoe Philipps, who will be an Olympic champion by now.
I hope somebody found you, Zoe.
You've always been a good sister and looked out for me, and I've never done the same.
But I wanna change that.
- Rosie, have a look at this.
- Anything to do with my sister? Might be a clue to the smugglers' treasure.
Guys, you don't get it.
My sister is out there all alone.
We don't have time to look for treasure that doesn't exist.
[SHOUTS] - Can you walk? - Of course I can.
Nope.
No, I I can't walk.
I'm sorry, Rosie.
I got distracted.
Which is completely unlike me.
From now on, my focus is finding Zoe.
Look, I I'm sorry.
I shouldn't have yelled, but I just wish Zoe was here.
- She'd get us out.
- So would Jade.
- She'd know what to do.
- At least we've got Bob.
No.
No.
[BECKY] There's the exit.
Okay, Ben.
I'll pull the rope and you get the door.
[BEN] Where are we? Smugglers' tunnels lead to the duke's castle.
[NEIGHING] Here we are, at the first place I rode you outside the arena.
Let's try that again.
[SNORTING] Raven, steady.
- [NEIGHING] - Hey! [GROANS] Fine! Meredith will take you away, I'll go back to America and we'll pretend like this whole summer never happened.
Is that what you want? It's over, Raven.
I don't know what else to do.
[MIA] And so, as I stand here before you at the dawn of the 25th Annual Friendlies, an event that honors sportsmanship, tradition, hope Why are you stalling? Afraid you'll embarrass yourselves in front of Holloway? [CROWD LAUGHING] Uh, nothing embarrassing about Bright Fields.
Come on, Zoe.
- Hey.
- Mom.
What are you doing here? Looking for you, as is half the island.
- You had him on the lead rope all day? - He wants to run away.
We can't ride for Meredith like this.
- He won't even look at me.
- Remember when you were little? You were determined to build that doll's house by yourself.
And you did it.
You had the whole thing done, only the door wouldn't fit, no matter how hard you pushed at it.
You were so mad.
You ran to your dad and demanded he fix it for you.
Yeah.
What did he say to you? - Nothing works when - Nothing works when you force it.
I had to make him You had to force him to forgive you.
Go on.
[ZOE] I'm not gonna force you anymore.
[NEIGHING] It's over, isn't it? Look.
[CHUCKLES] [MAGGIE] He needed to know how it would feel to lose you.
I swear, I won't let anyone come between us again.
What about Friendlies? - We'll never make it.
- You will if you go now.
Thank you, Mom.
[SIGHS] [WOMAN] Riding for Holloway, Callum Elphick.
[WOMAN] Whoo! Go, Callum! - Team Holloway.
- There's Jade.
Ben, show Rosie to the medical kit.
I'll tell her about the tunnels.
Maybe later.
I've been waiting over an hour for this display.
Will somebody tell me where my horse is? Yes, of course.
Uh - Zoe's rubbing him down.
- Warming him up.
- Warming him up.
- Rubbing him down.
Zoe's experimental.
I'm leaving.
[JADE] There she is.
Meredith, Zoe's here.
[CHUCKLES] Finally.
You get all the attention you wanted? I've got a lot riding on today.
If you make one mistake Is this one of our pep talks? I have missed those.
The only mistake I made was listening to you.
From now on, me and Raven do things our way, okay? You think your connection is gonna impress Meredith? [CHUCKLES] I don't care.
Raven is the only thing that matters.
Okay, boy.
Let's show Meredith what we can do.
[CROWD APPLAUDING] [GIRL] Whoo! Go, Zoe! [MARCUS] Zoe and Raven are back! - [JADE] Go, Zoe! - Good boy, Raven.
We may have a problem.
You were right.
About what? It's always been Raven.
[ZOE] Perfect.
That was a personal best for Raven.
You've been working hard.
If we keep this up, win Junior Nationals, I'd like to discuss Raven's future.
Once he's outgrown Bright Fields.
What about Zoe? Zoe's a kid.
They all are.
Raven and I are better than this place.
Bright Fields likes to play at being a stables, but it's an embarrassment.
And no place for a champion.
[SIGHS] If my horse wins Nationals, we'll talk.
Great.
Thank you.
[CHUCKLES] Whoo.
[MIA] James? Mia.
Why'd you say that about Bright Fields? Meredith, uh Meredith wants to believe her horse is better than this place.
- I said what she wanted to hear.
- What about me? What, have you just been saying what I've wanted to hear, too? We both want Bright Fields to win.
What's the difference? You don't care about Bright Fields at all, do you? Gaby was telling the truth.
You're a liar.
[JAMES] Keep your voice down.
You're causing a scene.
Zoe was right about you.
Don't bother turning up tomorrow.
You're fired.
You can't fire me.
My father owns this embarrassment.
I can do whatever I want.
Bright Fields just lost their trainer.
Shut up, Foot-Face.
[ZOE] Mia.
I'm so stupid.
I can't believe I trusted him.
[GASPS] [SCREAMING] That's it! Get this hairy mongrel out of my stables! Don't take out what James did on Bob.
I mean, look at this place! No wonder everyone thinks we're an embarrassment.
I mean it this time, Becky.
I want him gone by tomorrow night.
Sorry, Becky.
She's had a hard day.
It's hard when you realize someone's a rat.
- I'll talk to her.
- Don't.
She called Bob a mongrel.
He deserves better.
So do I.
Nice save with the ID.
I wasn't sure how I was gonna get around that one, but it looks like my wish is coming true after all.
You really do hate me, don't you? You can't hate someone you don't care about.
Look, I did a terrible thing to you, Gaby.
But I was young, too.
I was scared.
Believe it or not, I am sorry.
How was it today, being back at the yard? Oh.
Good.
Loads of happy memories of being treated like a servant.
[CHUCKLES] Why do you stay, Dad? Your debt's paid.
There's nothing keeping you here.
Holloway would have you.
Bright Fields is home.
It's not a bad thing to know where you belong.
Nice riding today.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
I'd keep my reins a bit shorter, but There is always room for improvements, huh? Always.
I think we should break up.
- What? - One of us has to say it.
Pin was right.
Raven should come first.
He's the reason why you're here.
You started taking advice from Pin now? I know, right? It's a crazy, mixed-up world.
It's I guess it makes sense.
- You're going away to the academy now.
- Right.
The academy, yeah, so Things have been kind of weird, haven't they? Yeah.
So that's it, then? I guess so.
[SIGHS] [FIREFLY NICKERS] [MIA] James didn't understand this place, but we believe in Bright Fields, Firefly.
You'll feel different in the morning.
- Yeah.
- Don't give up on Bright Fields now.
It's home, and nothing can change that.
