Waterloo Road (2006) s05e12 Episode Script

Series 5, Episode 12

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah # Mountain tops, karate chops # Bank raid, getting paid, private jet, sunset - You said quarter to.
- Sorry.
- What kept you? - I went to the doctor, as advised.
That was the only appointment I could get.
- And? - Blah blah, anxiety.
Blah blah, sedatives.
Blah blah, Diazepam.
At least you're doing something about it.
That's good.
- Blimey, you're prepared! - Yes.
I am.
Does that look like somebody not in control? - I'm going to throw those in the bin.
- The doctor thinks you need them.
All I need is a couple of good nights' sleep.
Now, that is everything we need for a highly successful trip.
Rachel will be impressed.
Well, that's the plan.
But you know, I doubt it, because she is waiting to see me fail.
Oh, God, are you sure you're all right, Ruby? Yes, I'm fine, I am fine.
But I would appreciate it if you didn't talk about it - the pills and so on.
- Are you OK for another hour? - I've got school.
I know but I need those barrels of sanitiser from the barn.
I can't shift them on my own.
If I'm late again, I'll get detention.
We'll get closed down unless we start making money.
Why did you cancel Mrs Fry's school trip? School trips make money.
Craig, we cancelled it because the farm's not ready.
- You said that Ruby understood.
- She did.
She was just a bit disappointed.
I thought you'd be grateful.
You're always moaning about this place.
Look, we need to get it back on its feet first.
Then we'll get the schools coming back.
Is this before or after I fail all my exams? - I'm going in.
- Oh, thanks! Think what Dad would make of that.
Yeah, I can make it there for five.
Do I need to bring anything with me? No, I'm going to be on my own.
All right, thank you, see you later.
- Everything OK? - Yeah, yeah, fine.
Just A parent wants to come in and see me.
Why? If you need to talk, Kim, you know where I am, yeah? Right.
Da-da! - What do you think? - Yeah, it's good.
We might need to be a bit more enthusiastic to get Rachel on board.
You're right.
No, it's great, it's great.
Go on, then.
I hope I'm not going out on a limb here.
We're not going out, we're just having a laugh.
It's OK, isn't it? Yeah, of course it is, but does Amy know that? - Hey, Finn.
- Hey! - What you guys gossiping about? - The farm trip.
What's that? - A little something to liven things up.
- Is that booze? What do you think, Joshers? Yeah.
Yeah, I'm in.
- That is excellent.
Are the staff behind it? - Yeah, I think so.
The point of peer mentoring is trust and empowerment so it's up to the children now.
Not exactly.
We've got to keep an eye on things.
Yeah, but we're not going to mollycoddle 'em.
The whole point is to allow it to work without our intervention.
- Our kids'll step up.
- Sounds like it's good to go.
Hey, are you going to wish me luck? Oh, it's your first day back in the classroom, isn't it? A chance to mark a few teachers' cards.
Spend time with the kids, get to know them.
Mentoring matches year twelves with year eights.
Its priority is to offer practical help for classwork.
- I think we should all see the benefits.
- Most of 'em couldn't mentor a geranium.
Oh, Ruby, thank you for the farm visit.
It's a great start to our emotional health programme.
(Laughs) What has a trip to the farm got to do with emotional health? A healthy dose of country air? I'm sorry about this.
I'd just like to remind you all again that collective responsibility is the key thing here.
With the mentoring and with the visit, because we did have a very serious incident last week involving the abduction of a pupil and the more we know about our pupils, their concerns and their hopes, their often troubled backgrounds, the more likely we are to prevent another Bianka Vale incident.
If you could check the cover sheet because we are quite a few down today.
So, going back into the trenches, eh? I must say, I'm impressed.
Not every head would put themselves up for a challenge like that.
He doesn't think I'm going to make it through today.
- I thought you'd have sharper instincts.
- Well, prove me wrong.
Fancy a small wager on it? Say £10? Nah, that's stealing.
If you double it, I might be interested.
Kevin Roley? Diane Williams? You're late, Craig.
Sorry, miss.
I was helping Mark.
We've all got things to do.
We still manage to get here on time.
Go on.
- He's such a flirt, isn't he? - Was he flirting with you? What gives you that idea? Maybe it's just his way.
He wouldn't mean anything by it.
I don't trust him.
My advice, stay away.
You so fancy him, Siobhan.
It's obvious.
Yeah, well, maybe he's not your sort.
I mean, you like the quiet types.
- What's that supposed to mean? - Well, you like to play it safe.
Me? I like the bad boys.
Can't help it.
That's the itinerary, Craig.
It's the same as last year but read through it, let me know if you've got any problems.
It's the first time Waterloo Roaders have seen the farm.
It's the first time I've seen it since You know, since Mark took over.
Your brother's doing a great job, running the farm.
Your dad'd be ever so proud.
Yeah, can't wait for you to see what he's done with the place.
I know.
Mrs Fry, do you mind if I just leave this here for after the break? What? I'm covering your year eights after the break.
No, erm, sorry yes.
Are you? Yeah, I am.
- You going to leave some work out? - Absolutely.
They've got worksheets to get on with.
No practical stuff? I quite fancied doing a bit of cooking.
No, no, because they did do that last lesson.
- Oh.
- And the theory is very important.
Of course.
Enjoy the farm trip.
Hope you have a great time.
Can you give me a call around lunchtime? Let me know everything's OK.
Craig, what's so special about this farm, then? Not much.
So we might need something to make it more exciting? There'll be a lot going on.
Anywhere we can sneak off and have a few swigs? You'll be fine.
Mrs Fry'll have enough to worry about.
- Mrs Fry? - (Gasps) Oh, yeah? Hiding all your unmarked coursework, are you? Come on, we're waiting for you.
Steph! Steph, I am in big trouble.
I haven't ordered any ingredients for weeks, the kids haven't cooked and I've not marked their work! I haven't had the energy! And Rachel, she's going to be in here, she's going to be snooping around! No, she isn't.
Just lock the door after you and bring the key.
Come on.
I'll see you outside.
- Craig.
- Yeah? Can you phone Mark and tell him we're on our way, please? Yeah, right, miss.
- Is that him? - Yeah.
His dad died last year so it's just him and his brother.
- That's tough on him.
- He's coping with it.
They're like that, kids.
Throw anything at them and they bounce back.
Thank you, driver.
All right, everybody, can you all settle down for me? Now listen up, you need to put them at ease, all right? So find out what they like, their favourite food or their favourite TV programmes.
- Favourite sixth former.
- (Laughter) Philip, this is not a personal vanity programme.
It'll be like having an older brother or sister.
One that doesn't tell you to go away and stop embarrassing them.
Yeah, don't forget to take notes and don't forget to fill in your post-interview forms.
Right, let's go and meet your mentors.
Come on, you lot, they won't bite.
If you come across any problems that are too big to solve, please don't try and solve them yourself.
Oh, here we go.
All right.
You two know each other, don't you? Now Ros is one of our best.
- I've never done this before.
- Just trust your instincts.
Whatever you think Em needs, you just do it.
- Have they had enough training? - Yeah, yeah, absolutely.
They'll be fine.
You all right, Craig? Yeah, I know what you need.
Hand it over, Josh.
You are such a bad influence on me.
That's me.
What about you, Siobhan? - No, I'm all right.
- Do something risky for a change.
Just one.
- You in, Craig? - Nah, better not.
He can't drink, he's the farm guide.
Did you have a late night with your quadruple espresso? Listen, whatever it takes to get me through.
We're here! Now put your wellies on, everyone.
It's minging.
It's a dump, mate.
What's happened here? It wasn't like this last year.
Is this your brother? Yeah, that's him.
- Hello, Mark, how are you? - Ruby! - What are you doing here? - The school trip.
I wrote you a letter cancelling the trip.
I gave it to Craig to give to you.
- You didn't give it to her, did you? - Yeah.
- I left it on your desk.
- I didn't get a letter.
You must have known Ruby was going ahead with the trip! I know.
I'm sorry.
I don't understand.
I'm afraid you'll have to leave.
It's not a good time, Ruby.
I'm not ready for you.
There's no farm trials, nothing.
What were you playing at? You're always worrying about money and I thought the trip would help.
They're here now.
Perhaps they should stay.
- Come here.
- I just thought it would help! What were we talking about this morning? You need to clean your ears out.
Could you queue up outside? I'll call you when I'm ready.
Queuing for classes! Ah, that stopped circa '82.
Can I help you, Grantly? Cor, you really have been out of the classroom a long time.
I think you're in for a bit of a shock.
Don't try and spook me.
Teaching's like riding a bike.
Once you know how, you never forget.
Hmm, that's just it, isn't it? We're not teaching any more.
The job's about crowd control, keeping yobs in their seats.
Trying to pretend you don't hear them swearing at you.
That is enough! I am going to enjoy myself so get lost.
Everything's under control.
Mmm, course it is.
Anyway, any problems, don't hesitate to sort them out yourself.
Ruby, can we not just go back? No, because what am I going to tell Rachel? She's going to string me up.
Steph, please, would you help me persuade Mark? - Oh, come on! - Thank you.
So, what do you say, Mark, eh? I'm sure a strong young man like you can cope with a few 14-year-olds! And of course you'd have the undying gratitude of me and Rubes.
Mark, Mark, please.
- All right, a quick tour and then it's off.
- Oh, thank you, thank you so much.
Get off them tyres, you! Right, everyone, come on.
You're going to love this, miss.
Got to be careful, though.
A couple of the pens are a bit wobbly, there's no leccy in the chicken shed.
- And the barn roofs falling in.
- Thank you, Craig.
# With a knackered barn here and a pile of crap there # Here a poo, there a poo Listen, it's fine, it's going to be fine.
Can you not call me Rubes, please? This mentoring, it's just a way for the teachers to get us to do their jobs for 'em.
- Hmm! - Cheeky.
Oi, Denzil, are you wanting a mentor? Because I've got a great big fat one in here for you.
Waarggh! You're supposed to be listening to our complaints.
What have you got to complain about? Someone given you too much homework? Yeah, Lipsett does.
In fact, I've got loads of complaints.
Budgen's stinky breath, Fry licking her fingers and putting it in the cake mix, Haydock giving us colouring in.
Denzil, I've heard enough.
We need to do something about this, Bolton.
Right, what I want you to do is write down everything that is bugging you about this place.
- Including teachers? - Especially the teachers.
And get anyone else to make a complaint too.
We'll get a box and dump it on Miss Mason's desk.
She'll get angry.
We've been told to listen to you so we're just following orders.
In! Sir, Denzil's making a complaint to his mentor.
There's no easy way of saying this, sir, but he said your breath stinks.
Not one more word! - Now get in! - (Both laugh) Mentors! God help us all.
They're going to rue the day.
Karla, I need Miss Mason to sign off on these today.
She's in food tech.
Why, sir? Because I need her to read them urgently, all right? No, I mean why is Miss Mason in food tech? Just take them, girl! And don't forget to tell her I need them back today.
OK, guys, settle down, please.
Right! Today we're doing worksheets.
- (AII moan) - Again? Mrs Fry said you did a practical last week, Denzil.
Theory's as important.
- (Knock at door) - Yeah? - Mr Budgen asked me to give you these.
- What are they? His preliminary form reports and he wants feedback.
OK, thanks, Karla.
He said as soon as possible.
Thanks, Karla.
Okey dokey, worksheets.
- We haven't done any cooking for ages.
- Really? Mrs Fry usually demonstrates.
We never get a go.
I see.
OK, erm This is new to me but what do you say to us doing some cooking today? - (AII) Yes! - You'd like that? All right! The farm's different from last year, eh, miss? Yeah, well, there are a few changes.
Changes? Is that what you call them? Hard times, Ruby.
Do you know Mark's shut the farm shop? Laid off all the workers.
- It's just the two of you? - Yeah.
The sooner he finishes school, the better.
Through you come.
Come on, hurry up.
OK, now, this here is Betty.
She's a five-year-old Friesian.
Now we obviously use the machines to milk but on school trips, we offer the chance to milk by hand.
- Any takers? - (AII) No! No? What about you, Miss Haydock? Me? You're having a laugh, aren't you? - It's a simple enough technique.
- Go on, miss! (AII) Go on! Down you come.
(Clapping) She can weigh anything up to 100 stone, so if she steps on your foot, crunch.
Bye-bye, toes.
- How much does the cow weigh? - Very funny.
- Right.
- Right.
There you go.
Wrap your hands around the base there of the teats and just squeeze gently down.
No, you've got to squeeze down to get the milk out, don't jerk.
Squeeze gently from the base.
How much milk does she give? She'll milk close to 80 pints a day.
I'm not standing here for that long! We used to have twice as many cows but we can't manage them now.
I don't think everyone needs to know that.
Now, can anyone tell me anything about the pasteurisation process? - There you go, well done.
- I thank you.
(Phone rings) Hi.
No, we're having a great time, thank you, yes.
Erm The keys? The little sods, they're always hiding them.
But they can just get on with their worksheets.
Ruby, it's OK, I'll get a spare set.
OK, smashing.
We'll see you later.
OK, bye-bye.
What? She's getting the spare keys from the caretaker for the storeroom.
Great! Quiet, please.
Hey! Quiet, please.
Now, Emily, could you pop to the caretakers for me and say Miss Mason wants the master key for the food tech room.
Thank you.
I'll take that.
I told you, an empty storeroom is hardly grounds for dismissal.
Ah, they're gorgeous! Ugh, no, look at their eyes.
They creep me out.
Right, now, these are domestic porkers.
These'll be off to the abattoir in two months.
What do you mean? Pigs go for slaughter when they're about six months.
You kill them when they're babies? We all end up on the slab one way or the other.
I'm never eating pig again.
Well, if you do, just make sure it ain't one of ours cos they're well scuzzy.
What's with the smart aleck comments? - Are you trying to embarrass me? - This place is a hole.
They're not blind, there's no point pretending.
If you helped more, it might not be.
Stop complaining and showing me up.
Make yourself useful and get those barrels I asked for this morning.
Not like you need to be on the tour, is it? Right, then, follow me.
- Are you determined to make life difficult? - What? You're not exactly helping with your digs.
Just saying how it is.
You've seen how bad the place is.
I see a young man working very hard to support his younger brother and you should have a bit more gratitude.
Craig! You need cheering up, mate.
Do you fancy a drink? - Yeah.
- Yeah! Come on, lead the way, then.
Josh, come on.
Quick, before they see us.
What? Where's the food? Right, who wants to learn how to make flapjacks? (AII cheer) You need to start thinking about getting your mix in the oven.
You've got about two minutes.
(Laughs) - No, Sam, we'll get done.
- They're going to kill them, Lauren.
All you have to do is keep watch.
Come on, piggies, come on.
Open the gate, Lauren! Come on, go, go.
You're free.
(Steph) Ruby, have you seen Finn Sharkey or Josh Stevenson? (Ruby) No, and Amy and Siobhan are missing too.
Craig! The pigs are out! Stop it! - Don't just stand there, help me out! - Don't panic, let me deal with it.
It's not a game! Leave them alone! No! (Screaming and shouting) Stop it! Put him back! Stop it! Put him back! Put him back! She got through the cookery lessons by the skin of her teeth.
She thinks she can do two jobs at once.
Well, if she can, heads clearly don't have enough on their plates.
Yo, Den, come here.
Come here.
See this box here, this is for you to collect everyone's complaints in.
Everyone writes their problem on a piece of paper, then posts it into the top.
Have you got that? Are you sure? Good.
Don't come back until it's full, yeah? Make sure everyone goes for it.
Campbell's told us.
She likes French.
It's just she has nine other subjects - Maths, English, science OK.
Yeah, I get the point, Ros, thank you.
Is this a joke? No, sir.
Erm I just feel that she could really benefit from some individual tutoring.
After everything that's happened.
Miss McCain I will give you two seconds (Shouts) to get out of my sight! Down in one, mate.
Told you this place was crap.
- There's nothing crap about this.
- You wanna try living here.
Getting up at five every morning, having him boss you around all the time.
You don't like your brother, do you? If he thinks I'm working here for the rest of my life, he can get stuffed.
You don't want to be a farmer, don't be, simple as.
Just tell him.
What's up there? My dad used to say there was a ghost up there.
- I think he said it so I wouldn't go up.
- Brilliant.
Let's have a look.
What you doing? - Aargh! - Argh! Idiot.
What's in these barrels, Craig? Sanitiser for the milk sheds.
What you doing? - What did you do that for? - Stop me, then.
- Do you want a hand? - No, better not.
I can do it.
It's horrible stuff.
For God's sake, stuff it.
No, course you don't fancy him! What a slapper! - He kissed me.
- Yeah, right.
- Ask him.
- She kissed me.
- Amy, he's lying! - Come on, let's get down.
Come on now, girls, it wasn't even a proper kiss! Wait till I get my jacket off.
He wants his barrels (Screaming and laughter) Get off! What were you doing? Was it some sort of swine liberation front? It was a very stupid thing to do, Sambuca.
Apologise to Mr Moran at once.
Do you know how expensive they are? The state of this farm, you should be getting reported! Get her out of my sight right now! Right now, please, Steph.
And Craig, I don't know where Craig is.
Find Craig, please.
If he wants his barrels, he can damn well have 'em! Look out! Argh! My eyes! It's stinging, it's got in my eyes, I can't see! Craig, you idiot, come down! Oh, no.
Are you all right? - It's stinging! - Josh, are you OK? No, I can't see! Miss, it's Josh! He's had an accident! Dear God! Drinking on a school trip! Sorry, miss.
Get up! Stand up! Let me have a look.
- Keep your eye closed.
- Argh, it still stings.
Oh, dear God.
He could have lost his sight.
You are all so for the high jump when we get back.
- It still stings.
- I'm so sorry, mate.
I didn't mean for that to happen.
I could get sued for this.
This is all Rachel needs to get me out.
Here, phone her and let Tom know.
Oh, God, this is a nightmare.
Write anything you like.
Teachers told us to.
She does that to me too.
- How many have you got? - Nearly full.
Have you put one in? I've already spoken to Ros.
If the teachers are crap, you've got to complain.
Write whatever you want.
I put one in about Budgen's breath.
Hand that over.
- This has got to go to Miss Mason.
- (Shouts) Now! You are in big trouble, boy.
Sir, it's not his fault, he was told to do it.
You come with me, Kelly.
Right, who can repeat that list to me? - I'm sorry to interrupt.
- Miss Lipsett, I'm trying to teach here.
Ruby's on the phone.
There's been an accident.
I'll be back as quickly as I can.
Well, drink was involved, yeah.
At the moment we're just in the middle of questioning the kids so Right.
We'll see you later.
- What did she say? - It's all fine, just erm get right back.
Did she say anything about what she'll do? It's not your fault, Mark.
I'm responsible for the place.
If anything goes wrong, it's down to me.
I'd better follow you back and explain what happened.
- She's going to throw the book at me.
- Come on.
Can't believe we had a fight over a guy.
Yeah, and now we're all in trouble for it.
Not that Finn seems to care.
I know.
He's a bit crazy.
- I don't trust him.
- What? Snogging the face off him, that your way of checking? I'm staying away.
I'm in enough trouble.
He's all yours.
- (Pig oinks) - (Both giggle) Ms Campbell, would you mind explaining to me the meaning of this? I've got absolutely no idea, Mr Budgen.
Well, I will enlighten you, shall I? I've already been told how to do my job by that Ros McCain, and now, in here, thanks to your stupid mentoring scheme, are hundreds of complaints about members of staff in this school.
What, complaints? Yes, insulting, sexually degrading, outrageous slurs on your colleagues.
Most of them libellous.
Go on, have a look at your handiwork! It was supposed to encourage responsibility.
Er what's going on? Ah, Miss Mason, perfect timing.
Perhaps you would like to hear how Miss Campbell's mentoring scheme has made every teacher a laughing stock, thanks to this idiot! Miss, Bolton and Paul said they were told to collect stuff about the teachers.
- Right.
- They were just trying to be good mentors.
Go on, you, scoot.
I'll come and find you later.
Perhaps if we'd had someone at the helm.
Grantly, whether I'm in a classroom or not, I am still in charge! Kim, you need to keep a closer eye on things.
You can't introduce new ideas and not stay on top of them.
- I know, I'm sorry - Is that it? Yes, it is, Grantly, now calm down and shut up! Denise, cover my class.
I've got a problem to sort out.
Straight to your form rooms, please.
Ruby, a word, please.
What I don't understand is how five pupils managed to go unnoticed for so long.
Why didn't Craig talk to you this morning about the trip being cancelled? - I don't know.
- What's he like normally? Tired and distracted lately, but nothing like this.
Rachel, could I speak to Craig, please? It is out of character, it has happened on my trip and I do feel responsible.
Yes, all right.
I will speak with Mr Moran.
There is no way we are going back on that farm again.
Do you know how lucky you are? Yeah.
Your eyes could have been permanently damaged.
But they weren't.
No, and that's just sheer luck.
Accidents happen, Dad.
Well, they happen a lot more when alcohol's involved.
What were you doing, drinking on a school trip? I was just having a laugh.
- Where did you get the booze from? - Don't know.
- Didn't see who passed the bottle.
- Don't give me that.
Finn Sharkey brought it in, didn't he? - Maybe.
- Didn't he? Yeah, all right, yeah, he did, but he didn't make me drink it, that was my decision.
- I don't believe you, Josh.
- He shoved it down my throat? Oh, yeah.
Right, from now on you stay away from that lad.
- No way.
- He's trouble.
- He's my best mate.
- Not any more, he isn't.
You got that? Come on.
Kim? Have you been hiding from the angry teachers? (Sighs) I've messed up.
You were right, they needed more training.
Hey, look, I was all for it as well.
It was a great idea in theory.
I don't know how I'm going to face everyone.
The things the kids said, they said some terrible stuff, and then I've got Grantly Yeah, well, Grantly's had his rant now and we know Grantly's happiest when he's ranting.
You should be pleased.
You've given him a great day.
(Laughs) Come on, let's go and get a cuppa.
- Where you going? You out tonight? - No.
I was talking to Amy, actually.
- See you tomorrow, Finn.
- We're washing our hair.
Amy, I'll wait for you, eight o'clock.
You know you'll be there.
It would have been better if you'd called Mrs Fry.
- Explain why you needed to cancel.
- I know that now.
I knew the farm wasn't suitable.
I did try to explain that to Ruby this morning.
She persuaded me against my better judgement to let them stay.
Nonetheless, chemicals left out in an open barn.
It should have been locked.
They needed better supervision! Two teachers there and no control over the kids at all.
- What's going on? - I chucked his letter away.
I wanted you to come to see how bad the place is now that Dad's gone.
Well, you should have spoken to me.
I tried.
Like when I was late because I was working and you thought it was an excuse.
Yeah, well, I didn't realise how tough things were.
- You always seem so happy in school.
- I am.
I like being here.
But it doesn't mean things are OK at home, does it? No.
Look, you can imagine the implications that this could have for me.
Yes, I can.
I can, and I'm sorry, but I am duty bound to make a report to Health and Safety.
So I could get closed down? - They weren't even meant to be there! - I don't know their procedures.
They may want to make an investigation, I don't know.
If Craig had cancelled the trip like he was asked! - Oh, come on, Mr Moran.
- I'll sort it.
He could be in serious trouble because of what you did.
You could lose the farm, Craig.
But if we lost the farm, it might not be so bad.
We could start over.
- I'm not sure if Mark wants to be - You've spent the last day here.
Out now.
From now on you're going to be where I can see what you're doing every day.
- Mark! - Get a move on! Please, Mark, wait! - We need to talk.
- A boy could've been killed, Ruby.
Talking over.
Just listen to what he has to say.
Tell Mark what you told me.
I'm 14.
I shouldn't have to work on the farm if I don't want to.
I want to go and finish my exams, go to college.
So did I.
But I didn't have a choice.
It's not Craig's fault.
Have you got any idea what it's like trying to keep my head above water? Working every hour to make sure he's looked after, having no time for myself.
Dad built this business up for the both of us, didn't he? - So that we'd have something.
- I don't want it.
Dad knew that.
- Why do you keep going on about it? - It's me who kept the farm going.
Me who gave up the chance of university to help him.
He's dead, Mark! He doesn't care about the precious farm any more, so why do you? It's all we've got left of him.
Have you any idea how much I hate the place? It's everywhere.
Is something wrong, Kim? It's erm It's my first scan.
And erm I'm not really looking foRWard to it.
Well, I'm sure everything'll be OK.
It's just it's not how I imagined it to be.
On my own.
Well, I'll come.
- What? - If you want.
I'm a science teacher.
I can count if it's got all its fingers and toes.
These are Craig's grades for last term.
He has excelled in every subject till recently.
I mean, this is A-star quality.
But it won't be if he keeps handing in his coursework late.
I didn't know you were so clever.
Oh, yeah, he has his moments.
You should be very proud of him.
Come on, mate.
I need you to lift up your top so I can give you the jelly belly.
Do you want me to wait outside? No No, no, it's fine.
There you go.
Erm, is is Is everything all right? Is it all right? Everything's fine.
- Do you want to know what the sex is? - Oh, yes, please.
- (Laughs) - Sorry! Sorry, it's nothing to do with me.
You heard him.
It's a boy.
It's a boy.
This is all we could get.
- We can't keep him here.
- Course we can.
- Do you want him to end up in a kebab? - That's a lamb, you numpty.
- Your mum could put him in a sausage.
- Shut up.
No one is going anywhere near him.
I'm going to call him Albert.
I love him.
I actually love him.
But not a word to anyone because he is not going back to that farm.
Are you, baby? You're not going back to the farm.
They all got a bit carried away.
What can I say? Oh, hang on.
I just wanted to apologise for today, miss.
The others are having detention tomorrow.
I expect to see you there, Craig.
OK? So not a word, OK? No! Lauren! Albert! Albert! I don't believe it! One of our piglets? Easy, easy! You brought him in on the coach? Pick it up! - You stole a piglet? - I didn't steal it! - He was going to kill him.
- I take it you didn't see that either? - I hope she isn't hurt.
- She? - I need to get her checked over.
- You're not going to kill her? We need a new breeder, don't we, Mark? I suppose.
All right, we'll keep her.
You can come and visit.
Come on, you lot, get out of here.
You're in real trouble.
Get down there! Excuse me.
Thanks, Ruby.
I will do right by Craig.
We'll get the farm back on its feet and get this one in school first thing.
See you.
Get you! Ruby the peacemaker, eh, sorting those two out.
May I have a word with Ruby, Steph? Yeah, yeah, OK, I'll see you later.
Thanks, Steph.
Oh, Rachel, I am so terribly sorry about today.
It's not just about today, is it, Ruby? Your storeroom's empty.
The kids say they never did a practical last week.
Oh Oh! That was another class.
But surely you've got lesson plans.
You must know what your classes are doing.
Ruby, are you OK? No, I'm not, not really.
Do you want me to set a bit of time aside to have a chat? Well, maybe.
You know, I've just had a bad couple of weeks.
I do understand.
Teaching's a really demanding profession, isn't it? What about dropping some of your management responsibilities? I can't.
I can't do that, Rachel, I need the money.
I know, but I need you to be on the ball, Ruby.
I can't carry anyone.
- Have a think about it.
- No.
I don't need to.
I know what it's like.
Take a demotion and six months later you haven't got a job.
- I'm trying to help you, Ruby, that's all.
- I'm fine.
I'm fine.
OK I'll see you tomorrow, bright and early.
Nice shoes, Steph.
I have just spent a day on a farm with Ruby Fry so please be gentle with me.
What is wrong with her? She's been in a funny mood.
Oh, she's just got a few things to sort out.
She'll be fine.
- Hello.
- Rachel! Sorry things didn't go according to plan but Ruby, well, she did her best and Josh is fine so - Yeah, no thanks to Finn Sharkey.
- It wasn't just him, Chris.
- Here we are.
- Oh, Grantly, let me, I'll get those.
No, no, Miss Mason.
These are on me.
Please can someone record this moment for posterity? - (Laughs) - Here you are.
Thank you.
It's not every day one gets to take £20 from the head teacher.
Excuse me? I said you wouldn't last more than a day.
What makes you think I won't teach tomorrow? Because today proved that a headteacher needs to focus on their job and leave the teaching to us.
Grantly, despite you sending kids into me all day and those reports you wanted me to look at and all the other nonsense that you created for me, I was fine.
- Hang on.
- I will be there tomorrow.
Will you? - Cheers, Grantly.
- Cheers! Cough up! Oi! I knew you'd come.
Yeah, well, I felt sorry for you.
- Sorry for me? - Yeah.
I saw your little face when we knocked you back.
- I never did that.
- You did.
- I never.
- Thought you'd have no one to play with.
You still came, even though you told Siobhan you wouldn't.
She's my mate, not my mum.
So you're not still mad about us kissing, then? - You did that for attention.
- I never.
- Yeah, you did.
- I didn't.
I just wanted to be sure.
What do you mean? Sure it was you that I wanted to go out with.
If you want to go out with me, obviously.
What, like proper go out, just me and you? - Yeah, course.
- I don't know if I can trust you.
You're the one I really like, Amy.
Do you think there's something going on between Kim and Chris? (Laughs) In his dreams, yeah.
- See you tomorrow.
- Taxi! - Steph, we haven't booked one.
- Just get in and pretend it's ours.
(Laughs) Prescott Road, please, then somewhere near Moss Bank.
(Laughs) Moss Bank? Ruby?
