Guess what?
- I came out to my mum last night.
- Oh my God.
- How did it go?
- Really well.
She was completely fine with it.
[Nick laughs]
[both groan]
Want a "well done" kiss?
Kissing at school is a terrible idea.
- I've never
- I saw you.
One of the first things
I ever said to you
- You're not gonna get distracted.
- Yes, I will.
[dreamy music plays]
[doorbell rings]
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- [Nick] Argh, just let me win, Charlie!
- [Charlie] Yes!
I can't do this anymore!
I'm sorry!
- That was uncalled for.
- I was here first.
- Um, really?
- Yeah.
- We're in my room.
- I was here
Oh no. This is war!
Come on!
No, stop tickling me. Stop it!
- Hi.
- Hi.
[fireworks crackle]
[distant voices chat]
Go on then.
[man in distance] Cheers, love.
[uplifting music plays]
[fireworks whiz]
You're making me feel
really single right now.
I have a boyfriend!
Yes, we're all fully aware!
And he's amazing.
- I mean
- Tao!
[scoffs] Yeah, he's okay.
[chuckles] And he wants to come out.
To some of his friends at least.
[Tao] Um I thought
he wasn't speaking to the rugby lads
after the fight with Harry.
[Charlie] He's not,
but I'm gonna help him.
[Tao] Okay.
Well, as long as you're both fine with it,
and you're looking out for each other,
I'm sure it'll be fine.
[Elle] Tao Xu!
Are you giving Charlie
relationship advice?
- Ah! [imitates Scottish accent] Rude!
- [all chuckle]
[normal voice] I know about relationships.
I watch a lot of romance movies, so
[Elle] Mm.
Excuse me.
- You're excused.
- No!
- [both chuckle]
- Excuse me. Uh N No.
[whimsical music plays]
- You have it.
- No.
- You won. Fair and square.
- No. Take it.
[schoolkids laughing and chatting]
[schoolkid] Get it! Get it!
[boy] Hey, Nick!
Here comes Captain Dipstick.
Are you okay?
I have something very important
to show you.
I named him Brooklyn because
that's where I want to live someday,
and I want him to meet Nellie
so they can be best friends!
He's absolutely adorable.
We're still friends, aren't we?
I promise I don't fancy you anymore.
[Nick chuckles]
Yeah. I still wanna be friends.
Okay, good.
- Also, I fancy someone else now.
- Really?
Okay, fine, don't tell me.
We've been friends since Year 7, but
If anything actually happens,
I promise I'll tell you.
And if you have any romantic developments,
I want to hear all about them.
Oh my God,
I forgot to show you this one. Look.
I got Brooklyn to roll over.
[school bell rings]
[headmaster over PA]
Happy Monday, Truham Grammar,
or perhaps not so happy for our Year 11s
as I regret to inform you that two weeks
of GCSE study hall starts today.
Exam season is nigh.
[dramatic music plays]
- Quiet! [echoes]
- [music stops]
For those of you who don't know me,
my name is Mr. Farouk.
I normally teach science,
but for the next couple of weeks,
I'll be supervising
your independent GCSE revision.
My rules are simple.
No chatting,
no phones, no annoying questions.
Break my rules, and you go
straight to isolation for the day.
[ruler bangs]
Nicholas Nelson.
Why don't I let you off with a warning
as I hadn't finished listing my rules?
If I catch you with that phone again,
I'll be confiscating it.
Do you understand?
Yes, sir.
A'ight, I think
we're gonna get on just fine.
- [teacher] Yusef.
- Yes, sir.
- [teacher] Jim.
- Here.
- [teacher] Maximilian.
- Here.
- [teacher] Stuart.
- Here, sir.
- [teacher] Addison.
- Here, sir.
- [teacher] William.
- Here, sir.
[teacher] Nicholas.
- [teacher] Todd.
- Here, sir.
- [teacher] Leah.
- Here.
- [teacher] Warren.
- Here, sir.
[teacher] Charlie.
Here, sir.
- [teacher] Toby.
- Here, sir.
- [teacher] Paul.
- Here, sir.
[teacher] Dennis.
Are you just gonna ignore me
for two weeks then?
[scoffs softly]
- I didn't even do anything to you.
- Don't talk to me.
I said sorry to Charlie for what happened.
- Don't talk about him.
- Wow.
You know,
if you're trying to keep it quiet,
you should probably
stop acting so gay for him.
[ruler bangs]
I seem to remember
saying something about no chatting.
[optimistic music plays]
- [knock on door]
- Come in!
[school bell rings]
I want to rejoin the rugby team.
You know you don't have to do this
if you don't want to.
I want to.
Otherwise we'll barely see each other
this term.
- And I've missed rugby.
- [chuckles]
- Have you now?
- Yeah.
I love running around and falling over.
Oh, well, you are very good
at the falling over part.
I'm good at the running part,
too, actually.
What, running away from the ball?
- Okay, well, if you don't want me here
- Oh, no, no, no, no. Come on.
I need you.
Oi! Are you coming back to rugby?
- Yeah.
- Yes, lad.
Come on then.
- [boy] Go on then, pass it.
- [coach] Touch warm-up!
You all right, Nick?
What? Are you still in a mood with us?
[boys laugh]
[Harry] Let's go, lads.
You've all been playing like girls lately.
[upbeat music plays]
- [boys shouting]
- Harry, cross! Cross!
[coach] Wide! Nice and wide!
[Harry] Charlie, pass the ball!
Let's go. Let's go.
And again! And again!
- [boy] Nick!
- [coach] Nick!
[Harry] Nick, you're meant
to pass the ball!
- [Otis] Come on.
- [coach] You had an overlap.
- [Harry] I was open!
- Why aren't you guys playing like a team?
- Set up.
- [Harry] Pass the ball!
- Can we set up?
- Leave it, Otis. Leave it.
Leave it. Come on.
- Let's go again!
- [Harry] We don't want another St. John's.
Elle, listen, you deserve
to have the perfect romance.
[Darcy] Exactly.
Like us.
[chuckles] But Tao is literally
the worst person to have a crush on.
Sometimes I think he might like me back,
but other times it's
It's probably just Tao being weird.
But maybe being weird
is how he expresses his romantic feelings.
Personally, I can relate to that.
What if you tried
actually flirting with him?
- Just to see what happens.
- [Darcy] Yeah, flirt with him.
You're quiet today.
- What's up?
- Nothing. Everything's normal.
Normal? Okay.
My mum's been moaning at me
to get a haircut.
Your hair's cute long.
But it'd look cute short too.
- [fireworks fizz]
- You should do what you want.
[car horn honks]
[Elle] That's my mum.
I'll see you tomorrow.
- [boy 1]starting lineup on Sunday.
- [boy 2] If no one passes, we won't win.
I got you a present.
What? Why?
Because we've been going out
for two months.
As in, it's our two-month anniversary?
It sounds silly when you say it like that.
- No, no, it doesn't.
- And now I'm embarrassed.
No! Look. Um
I I did not get you a present.
It's okay. I didn't want it
to become a thing, so
It could be a thing.
[gentle music plays]
And how did you know
this is my favorite chocolate bar?
You mentioned it ages ago, so
[chuckles softly]
Thank you.
[rousing music builds]
- [door slams]
- [music stops]
[Charlie chuckles]
And that's why
we shouldn't kiss at school.
Oh, but kissing's so fun.
But you getting outed
because we get caught kissing is not.
I I want to tell people.
You know, like Imogen. I just
It's hard to find the right time.
You don't have to tell everyone,
or anyone, if you don't want to.
- You're making me wanna kiss you again.
- I'm being serious.
So am I.
If we're out by the time
we're on the Paris trip, we can, uh
kiss on the Eiffel Tower.
No more kissing at school.
It's too risky.
- Are you staying to hang out with us?
- I will be going upstairs.
Mum and Dad
hardly ever go away at weekends.
- You can invite some of your friends over.
- I treasure my alone time.
Why exactly did you purchase
the entire Tesco snack aisle?
[chuckles] It's a sleepover.
We need snacks.
And everything about tonight
needs to be perfect.
Are you getting graded for it?
I'm helping Nick come out
to one of his oldest friends.
[doorbell rings]
[Charlie] Hi.
- [Nick] I made cupcakes.
- [Charlie] Wow. Well done. Proud of you.
[Nick] It's very unlike me.
[Charlie] We have a snack table
you can put them on.
- You know, like, toffee popcorn.
- Toffee popcorn is the best popcorn.

before you started making it?
- Charlie, can I use your bathroom?
- Yeah, sure.
Um I'll show you where it is.

I should've let you say it.
It's just it is kinda obvious.
And, like, it totally makes sense.
Like, the whole date thing
and the sports-day thing.
You didn't like me because you're gay.
Well, I I'm bisexual actually.
- Oh.
- Yeah.
[warm music plays]
I'm sorry.
I don't actually know how to react.

- [Isaac] Oh. Let's go and see.
[friends chat]
[chuckles softly]
[Charlie's mum] I signed that form
for the Paris trip.
- It's on the fridge.
- [Charlie] Oh, thanks.
[Charlie's dad] Are all your friends
going too?
Yeah. It's a joint
Truham-Higgs language students trip.
Well, then, your Spanish GCSE
will come in very useful.
- You know my friend Nick?
- [mum] Yes.
I thought I probably should tell you
He's my boyfriend.
You're surprised.
Uh, well, I You know
He's a very sporty, laddish sort of boy.
I j I wouldn't have assumed he was gay.
Being gay has nothing to do with that.
And actually, he's bisexual.
Gay or bisexual, uh,
Nick is banned from sleepovers
from now on.
Yeah, there will be no hanky-panky
in this house.
Please don't say "hanky-panky."
And I suppose
Nick's going on this Paris trip as well?
So that's why you've been talking about it
nonstop for weeks.
- Bedroom door open at all times.
- [Charlie] I'm leaving.
- No hanky-panky till you're married.
- Stop saying "hanky-panky."
- What
- [mum] No. Mm.
- [knock on door]
- [door creaks]
You're telling people then?
[Tori] And you're not worried?
About what?
About getting bullied again?
It's not gonna be like when I got outed.
We just want people
to know we're together.
I'm gonna do everything I can to make sure
Nick doesn't have to deal with what I did.
