Do I have to go?
Camp's only for a couple of nights.
And you're with all your schoolmates.
It'll be fun.
You sure you don't want
to bring the special pants?
Sh. No. It hasn't happened for ages, okay.
I'm going now.
[dad] Have fun, Rubes!
Love you.
- What is she wearing?
- "Love you!"
She stinks.
Been to the charity shop again, Ruby?
- [laughter]
- Ew!
Ruby, this is Sarah. She's new.
I want you to look after her, please.
- Hi.
- Come on.
[girls laughing]
- Which bunk do you want?
- This one looks good.
Ew. Can anyone smell something bad?
- It's just Ruby Matthews.
- Yeah.
Poor people always stink.
Who was that?
That's Darla.
She doesn't let anyone into her group.
She seems unpleasant.
Hey. Do you wanna have

- No, I think Joanna did.
- Oh.
Have you seen
my bright green dress, darling?
Um I've gotta go.
- I'm not gonna be back till late tonight.
- All right. Well, have fun.
- Thanks.
- [sighs] Ah!
- See ya.
- Where are you off to looking all fancy?
I'm going to a queer night later
with a friend.
- I'm his wingman.
- Hmm!
- What do you think?
- [laughs]
Come here.
[clears throat]
- I don't
- A bit of eyeliner.
- Okay. Uh [groans]
- Lovely. And now the other side.
- Ah! Oh! Yeah, that's in my eye.
- There we are.
- Now you're perfect.
- Really?
Great. Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- See you later.
[Joanna chuckles]
- Can I have my dress, please?
- What dress?
- The one you're wearing.
- It was on the drying rack. [sighs]
There was a scarf on the drying rack too.
White with flowers.
Are you gonna thank me
for, uh the cleaning?
Thank you for cleaning.
And for stealing my clothes.
Oh, I've got this baby group thing.
Do you want to come with me?
Um No. I'm good.
I think I'm just gonna hang out here.
What's that creepy tree house all about?
My ex built it. Never really liked it.
The ex that's not Joy's father?
You can do your own washing later
if you want.
[phone rings]
- Hey.
- [Eric] Are you on your way?
- I need help.
- With what?
Decidin' what to wear.
I've got too many options.
I've confused myself,
and I'm in fashion hell.
But, dude, it's it's only two o'clock.
What's the big rush?
Otis, this is my first
proper gay night out.
It is a big deal, and I must prepare!
I know it's a big deal.
I just have to go to Ruby's first.
Does Maeve know you're hangin' out?
We're not hangin' out.
She's helping with my campaign.
And, no, Maeve doesn't know.
- I told you we had a fight.
- Is she still not talkin' to you?
Uh We
I don't know if she's not talking to me,
but I'm not talking to her.
- We're not even officially together, so
- What time are you gonna get here?
I don't know, like
- Seven-ish.
- [yells] Seven?
Otis, I can't glam myself alone
for five hours.
- Well, I'll be there as soon as I can.
- [Eric splutters]
- You
- [beeping]
- [girl shrieks]
- [boy] Go, go that way!
- [Tyrone] Molloy hasn't read your chapter?
- [Maeve] No, I haven't heard anything.
[Tyrone] I'd ask him what he thinks.
No. I don't wanna seem desperate.
You've gotta stop
being so meek and British.
You're in America now.
You can ask for what you want.
Mm-hmm. Really?
Guys, I got the internship.
- [gasps]
- Molloy just called me to his office.
I'm going with him
to this book launch next week,
where he's gonna introduce me
to his publisher.
- Can you believe it?
- Wow.
Yeah. Congrats, that's amazing.
I gotta go call my mom.
She's gonna lose her shit! [squeals]
[somber music playing]
Are you okay?
Yeah. How about you?
It's stupid. I convinced myself
I might actually get it.
I kinda knew she was gonna get it.
Her brother went to Wallace, and, um
her dad donated a building or somethin'.
Her chapter was about
how hard it is to go to boarding school.
[snickers] Yeah.
I mean, I I love Ellen,
but she's never gonna get
why an opportunity like this
is such a big deal for us.
Don't worry about it.
You're an amazing writer,
and there will be other things.
[phone chimes]
- Hiya. I brought cakes.
- Hi.
- What's on them?
- Oh, my squirrels. I miss them so much.
It's Sadie, Simon, Selina, and Bruce,
'cause he looks like my stepdad.
Right. Who are you?
Oh, I'm Aimee. Is Isaac in?
[Isaac] I said it's for me.
- Aimee.
- [Aimee] Hi.
This is my brother, Joe.
- Who is leaving.
- Am I?
Yes. I said
I needed the caravan today, remember?
- Without you playing video games in it.
- [Joe] Fine.
I'm goin' out.
Cool. Which one's Sadie?
Bye, Isaac.
[mysterious music playing]
The person who I'm not allowed
to mention by name is here.
How have you been?
If you make my daughter cry again,
it will not be good for you.
- [footsteps]
- [sighs]
- Why do you look like a French pirate?
- I'm going to a
No, I don't have all day.
I'm meeting Anwar and Olivia.
You'll just have to lose the eyeliner
and borrow some of Dad's clothes, okay?
He's helping us with the video.
What video?
[suspenseful music playing]
[phone rings]
Ah, yes!
- [Abbi] Hey, Savior.
- [Roman and Aisha] Hi!
What are you doing? We're at Roman's.
Do you wanna come over?
I'm gettin' ready
to go to a queer night later.
Emerald City?
- Yeah.
- We were thinkin' of goin'.
- Let's all go together.
- Oh my God!
- Please!
- [Roman] Come.
- Uh, yeah.
- [all] Please!
- [Aisha] Please!
- Yeah, let's do it.
Do you wanna get ready together?
Well, I'm I'm waitin'
for Otis to, uh finish a thing.
- Fine. Tell him he can swing by later.
- Yeah.
Come. It'd be fun.
- [Abbi] You know you want to.
- [Roman] We'll have a ball.
- [Abbi] Yes!
- [laughs]
[Otis] Don't you think
I should wear something a bit more hip?
No. This outfit is great.
You could be anyone.
Which means people
can project what they want onto you.
- Mmm.
- [phone chimes]
Oh, whoa. I don't need that, do I?
He does need it.
- Your skin looks like an onion, Otis.
- Um
- Uh
- Thank you.
[Otis whimpers]
- Smile.
- [groans]
Ugh [shudders]
[Ruby] Okay!
[Ruby] Yes.
- [Roland] Okay.
- [clears throat]
And we're rolling.
[camera whirring]
Should I start?
Sorry, I thought you'd say "action."
Oh my God. Dad, please say "action."
And action.
I am Otis Milburn, and I'm here to say
I'm the best therapist you'll hear today ♪
[Ruby] Cut!
What the hell are you doing?
I'm responding to O's video.
O is dynamic, interesting, and mysterious.
She can rap.
You are none of those things.
So, you need a clean message,
which is why I've made you a script.
Just relax and be normal.
And action.
Hello there.
I'm the original sex therapist,
formerly practicing at Moordale Secondary.
I'm compassionate and honest.
I will meet you where you're at.
- This is bad.
- Before starting my clinic
- Why does he look so startled?
- I don't know.
- the students were lost and uned
This isn't working. This is ridiculous.
O is better at this than I am.
She's better at being cool.
She's probably a better therapist.
- Otis. Otis!
- I'm hot.
- Otis.
- [sighs]
Listen to me.
You know you are good
at talking to people.
You make them feel heard.
Now, forget the camera. Forget the script.
Pretend I'm a client,
and you're telling me
why I should listen to you.
[Otis exhales]
Hi, I'm Otis Milburn,
and I'm running for student counselor.
And I am also a bit of a mess.
I am incredibly awkward,
and I struggle with public speaking.
I suffer from anxiety.
[gentle music playing]
And I often don't like
the way my body looks.
I didn't kiss anyone until I was 16,
and I've had problems
wanking and fingering.
I've had my heart broken by people I like,
and I've hurt people who like me.
And I feel misunderstood
a lot of the time.
I am a mess,
but I think all teenagers are,
and I think that's why it's so important
that we can talk.
Welcome, everyone ♪
How are you? How are you? ♪
- How are you? ♪
- [baby babbling]
Welcome, everyone ♪
How are you? ♪
How are you today? ♪
- [laughter]
- Welcome to Tickle Tots.
Let's start by going around the room,
saying you and your baby's names,
their age,
and an interesting fact about yourself.
[rainstick rattles]
My name's Jean, and this is Joy.
She's eight weeks old.
And, um
Interesting fact, well [chuckles]
I almost died when giving birth.
It happened very suddenly,
and I thought for a very split second
that maybe I wouldn't get to meet my baby
or see my son again.
And, um well, it was terrifying.
But, um but we're fine now.
And, uh
Well, except Joy cries quite a lot.
And I'm a little bit worried
that it might be because of my stress
because of the birth,
and, well, my sister's staying with us,
and I've gone back to work.
And also, my partner left because he is
he's not the father.
Sorry, um it's not very interesting.
Worries, I guess.
Welcome, Jean.
- Mmm.
- [all] Hi, Jean.
[woman] Hi, welcome.
- [rattles]
- [chuckles]
Ahem. I'm Geri. This is Marlow.
She's ten weeks old,
and I like to dip
the entire digestive in the mug
and suck the tea through it
like a biscuity straw.
- [laughter]
- [woman] I'm the same!
[Michael] Checks first.
Now gently lift your left foot
off the clutch.
Left foot. That's your right foot.
[Adam] Yeah. Mm-hm.
[Michael] Good. Now, stop.
- Stop!
- You didn't teach me how to stop!
[both scream]
- Oh, Jesus Christ, Adam!
- You didn't tell me how to stop.
This was a mistake.
I am capable of patience.
I am trying to be a better me.
Adam, you're right.
I didn't teach you how to stop.
It's my fault. I am sorry I yelled.
Why do you keep saying sorry?
It's freaking me out.
I'm doing an online course.
It's called Being a Better Man.
It's helping, I think.
Shall we try again?
[bright music playing]
[brakes squeal]
Welcome to me humble abode!
- [laughs]
- Hi! You look amazing!
- Oh, thank you. So do you.
- Thank you.
[Roman] Make yourself at home.
I forgot to say to bring swimmin' shorts.
But you can borrow some of mine
if you feel like a dip in the pool.
- The pool?
- [laughter and chatter]
[excited shouts]
Stop it! Oi, oi! Hands up, Savior!
Don't even dare! Don't even dare!
No one's safe. Look.
- I'll get you those shorts now.
- Um Hold my flippin' glass.
- Are you kiddin'?
- No, he's not.
- [Eric] Yes, she is!
- [Abbi] No, he is not!
Whoo! [laughs]
[Isaac] So, you could do sculpture.
Or there's printmaking as well, here.
But it's about finding
what's the right expression for you.
I don't think I get art.
What makes you decide
how to decorate your cakes?
- Dunno, just what I feel on the day.
- Well, that's basically art.
Is that someone's bed?
Yeah, that's Tracey Emin.
It's what her bed looked like
after she'd had a depressive episode.
And then she put it in a gallery.
How badass is that?
And this over here is Ana Mendieta.
She took loads of photographs of herself.
A lot of female artists
like to use self-portraiture.
Maybe it's because other people
don't see them how they really are.
Do you have a camera?
Um Do you have
any sort of regular income?
Um, I work
mainly in the wellness industry.
I I do Reiki,
and, um, I teach reflexology.
And I sold cold press juicers for a bit.
- Oh, okay.
- And these days, I am a nanny.
Oh, I love babies. Babies are the best.
- Oh.
- Uh
Cool. Okay. So, uh
we will need to run a a credit check.
I don't have a like, a credit score.
Yeah, I I've recently just come back
from overseas, so
- Ah! Whereabouts?
- Oh, well, um yeah, I
I've spent a lot of time
in Thailand and Malaysia.
That's so cool. Uh, it's kind of my dream
to go to New Zealand, if I'm honest.
I wanna see where they shot
Lord of the Rings. It's just
I know it's dumb, but
[as Gollum] "We wants it."
"And we needs it."
[as Gollum] "We must have the precious."
- [laughing]
- It's such a Ah, it's
Um. Ahem. Uh, anyway, where was I?
Sorry. Uh, do
- What sort of, um assets do you own?
- Uh
None. In terms of material wealth.
Okay, listen. I Unfortunately,
I think it's pretty unlikely
we're gonna be able to offer you
any kind of loan today, Joanna.
- Can I just get a credit card?
- Absolutely not.
- Right.
- No. But, um
What I did wonder was
whether or not it would be okay to
[taps desk]
ask for your number?
Jo? I thought you were staying at home.
Uh, yeah, the, uh
the bank, uh they blocked my card.
Fell for one of those
bloody text scam things.
Are you gonna take me home?
Nice belt.
- I found it on your bedroom floor, so
- Mm-hmm.

- Hey.
- Hey.
Oh, uh, this is my mate. Dave.
[latex glove snaps]
[doctor] Do you take
any prescription medication?
Cipralex. For anxiety.
Are you a smoker?
I had one. Once.
I lost my voice. [chuckles]
Do you have any health issues
in your family?
Blood pressure problems,
heart disease, cancer?
No. My mums are pretty healthy.
I don't know my dad. He was a sperm donor.
Okay, you're all done.
- Was everything all right down there?
- Let's do some blood tests.
And I'm going to refer you
for an ultrasound.
Just to be on the safe side.
- [trash lid clatters]
- [drops gloves]
- Hmm.
- [belt buckle jangles]
Why did you ask about my parents?
Well, some illnesses can be hereditary.
You know, I thought I was gay
for about a week when I was 15.
I saw this film with Clint Eastwood.
I couldn't stop thinking about him
carrying a gun.
Then I realized I just wanted to be
Clint Eastwood, not have sex with him.
Dad, this course you're doing
is making you really weird.
[Michael laughs]
I saw your friend
Eric at school.
He said you weren't friends anymore.
And I thought
maybe you'd want to talk about it.
[gentle music playing]
I'm okay.
I mean, it was hard.
But it doesn't
hurt as much as it did.
Also, I'm not gay.
I'm bisexual.
They say Alexander the Great
may have been bisexual.
[phone chimes]
What is it?
It's a teacher from school
asking me out for dinner.
- A date?
- No. No, just dinner, I think.
She sent you a winky face.
She's asking you on a date.
You should go.
Is your mother seeing anyone?
She's taking self-defense classes,
and I think she might be
dating her instructor.
Is it serious?
I think she's seeing a few people.
This is, uh really good.
["Dance Across the Floor"
by Jimmy "Bo" Horne playing]
I wanna wear this,
but I do want somethin' sparkly.
- Mmm!
- [Abbi] Oh, look who it is! Hey!
- No idea what to wear.
- You'll find something.
What about this?
I reckon it's more you than me anyway.
- [Abbi] Ooh, look at that.
- Ooh!
This could be a vibe.
- Do you want me to help?
- Yeah. Thank you.
- [Abbi] Got it?
- Yeah.
- Stunning.
- Yes!
That was made for you!
- Yes!
- I need a pic of this.
- And pose.
- Oh!
- Mmm!
- And pose.
- Oh, you look amazing.
- [chimes]
- No, I love it!
- Oh!
Your friend has put up a campaign video.
- [Eric] Oh, okay!
- [Aisha] He's so cute.
Oh! [chuckles]
How long have you guys been friends?
We've been best friends
since primary school.
[Aisha] You seem really different.
Yeah. No, we are. Uh [laughs]
He's always been my person, though.
But I guess
I don't know. I guess, um
Sometimes, I feel
like he doesn't entirely get me.
I think that's why
I don't have many straight friends.
Me either. So much emotional labor!
Aah! [laughs]
I also think sometimes
straight people can just be a bit basic.
Okay, Roman. Let's not be mean.
Otis is Eric's friend.
I was only agreeing with Eric.
Sometimes it's just hard to,
you know, bridge the gap.
[Abbi] Okay, it's getting a bit heavy.
Do you know what we need?
We need some of this.

- [door opens]
- Hey, what are you up to?
- Just homework.
- Do you want a snack?
- I'm good. Thanks.
I was gonna do a face mask
and watch a film later. You fancy it?
No, thanks. I'm good.
[door closes]
[tablet chimes]
I can't see anything.
The lens cap's still on.
If you move that front dial to the left,
then it will focus.
The numbers behind that are the aperture.
The lower the number,
the more light you let in.
And there's a self-timer
you can use as well.
[shutter clicks]
Oh, right. Okay. Um
[shutter clicks]
- [gasps] Are these for your portfolio?
- Yeah.
Can I?
Yeah, sure.
We moved around a lot
when we were younger.
- Have you always lived with your brother?
- Yeah.
- I wanna move out on my own soon, though.
- [Aimee] Oh.
Maybe get a teaching degree
and earn a bit of money that way.
But I just don't know
how to talk to him about it yet.
I thought you did art
just 'cause you liked painting.
- This looks very personal.
- Ah
Yeah, I I suppose
I've had a lot of anger
growing up in care.
And painting helped me feel less, um
When I got sad as a kid,
I'd bury all my mum's jewelry
in the garden so she couldn't find it.
- It's probably still there, actually.
- [laughs] You're a maverick.
What does that mean?
It means that you don't think
like other people.
I thought that was being stupid.
No, no, no.
It means that you're your own person.
[tender music playing]
- [door opens]
- [Joe] I'm home.
Do you have any cakes left?
Yeah, loads. Have 'em all.
Um I've gotta go.
So right now. [chuckles]
Have a nice evening!
- Don't forget the camera.
- Oh, thank you.
- Bye!
- [Isaac] Bye.
[Joe] Bit of a strange fish, that one.
I've had problems wanking and fingering.
I've had my heart broken
If I was 17 and still an idiot,
I'd vote for you.
- [chuckles] Ah, thanks.
- I feel misunderstood a lot of the time.
- Ooh. It's already got 40 views.
- So I am a mess.
- Forty views is shit, Otis.
- All teenagers are.
- Yeah, well
- That's why it's so important we can talk.
Thanks for all the help today.
You guys were great.
It's fine.
Righty-ho. I'm gonna get the nachos ready.
We're watching
Third Wives of Miami tonight.
I thought you were seeing
Anwar and Olivia tonight?
Oh, our plans changed.
Didn't you have somewhere to be tonight?
Yeah, I need to find out where I'm going.

Did you get uninvited?
No, I decided not to go.
You so got uninvited.
Eric's friends with the popular kids now,
and he doesn't want you tagging along.
That's harsh.
Even for you.
Oh my God.
No, you're actually upset. Okay.
Do you wanna stay
for nachos with me and my dad?
I don't know, Ruby. I'm with Maeve now.
Kind of. It's a bit weird.
- What are you trying to say?
- Nothing.
Just that you're suddenly being
very nice to me.
- And you're helping me with this campaign.
- Don't flatter yourself.
If you must know,
I went to primary school with O.
Except she was called Sarah Owen
back then.
Never have I ever
kissed Henry Gold with tongues.
New girl. Your go.
Can you not speak or something?
[girls giggling]
Never have I ever
wet the bed on school camp.
Oh my God. No.
Ruby, you need to drink.
She put the stinky piss sheets
under her mattress.
- Oh my God!
- I always knew she was a bed wetter!
- That's why she stinks.
- Pisser!
- [Ruby] Please stop!
- Bed wetter!
- Bed wetter!
- Bed wetter!
[chanting] Bed wetter! Bed wetter!
Bed wetter! Bed wetter!
[Ruby] They put the video online,
so everyone found out.
[Otis] Ruby, that's awful.
- I'm sorry.
- [girls] Bed wetter! Bed wetter!
You know, there's nothing
to be ashamed of.
And being bullied can easily contribute
to nocturnal enuresis.
- Ugh, I don't need you to go
- It's a really
into therapist mode right now, Otis.
I saw a specialist. Got it under control.
Well, I'm glad you spoke with someone.
I mean, primary school was hell, anyway.
I was the weird girl with the weird
parents whose mum made her clothes,
I didn't think it could get worse.
And then this happened.
I ate lunch every day
in the toilets by myself till I left.
Because nobody wants
to sit with the bed wetter.
[somber music playing]
Ruby. That's not fair.
No, don't. Please don't look at me
like that with the pity eyes.
- I will throw up.
- Okay.
- Looking at you with normal eyes.
- [sighs]
So this is about revenge.
I just think it's rich
that she's walking around,
preaching kindness,
and pretending she doesn't know who I am.
Rubes, I feel a bit dizzy. Uh
I think I'm gonna have to lie down.
- Okay, Dad. Do you want some help?
- No. I'm okay.
Uh, nachos are in the oven.
Look, it's fine if you can't stay.
I get it's awkward with Maeve.
No, I want to.
- [bell rings]
- [Ellen] Yeah, I know. It's crazy.
My mom and dad are so happy.
