Johnno, come on, we'll be late.

Johnno, come on, let's go!


- Oh, come on!

- What happened to my net?

You'll get us both killed.


If we're late again,

Mrs. Greenwood will kill us!

- Now come on. We've got...

- Hey! Wait 'til I get my hands on you!

- Run for it!

- Blighters!

Now listen, Johnno! There are some

things you can do that are all right!

Wipe the smile off your face!

You've got to understand

... other people have rights, too!


- You can't just do what you like.

- But I like crabs.

I don't care if you like crabs.

I don't care if you marry a crab.

But I do care that you've interfered

with the property...

...of some of my best customers.


got his hearing aid turned on?


Do - You - Understand?

- I suppose that means yes?

- He won't do it...

And why didn't you stop him? You must

have known what he was going to do!

- I couldn't! I didn't have...

- Or are you as stupid as he is?

You're supposed

to be the one with brains!

I'm not stupid and neither

is Johnno! Why would...

- That's enough!

- I'll be glad when I'm gone!

- Hey! Where do you think you're going?

- Julie.

Go on.

We really got the short straw,

didn't we?


Does it hurt?


John? Johnno? Let's go the back way!

Sit down, grade seven!

Quiet! I said quiet!

You're in for detention!

You can't quit!

What's all this noise? Quiet!

Oh, please, little people, I said quiet.

Now let me come out.

You, Darrell, you can give that lot out.

Now, your new teacher for next year

is a young lady called Miss Fielding.

She'll be arriving two weeks

before the start of school...

...and she'll be staying

at the Walkers' old house.

If any of your parents wish to meet her,

she'll be here everyday

between 10 and 1.

She's from the city...

...and she'll be bringing

a whole supply of new books with her.

Excuse me, Mrs. Greenwood, isn't Johnno

getting his test back?

Not yet.

Did he pass?

Johnno... I've got your test here.

Can I see you after school, please?

- See you.

- Bye, Sarah.

Come on, Johnno.

- I don't know the answers.

- Yes you do.

- No. - You do know the answers,

you're just not trying hard enough.

Excuse me, Mrs. Greenwood.

Would you like me... let Captain Claw go?

He can't stay for the holidays.

Thank you, Julie.

That's a very good idea.

- What are you doing?

- We can't just leave him here, Johnno.

No! Captain Claw is mine!

- I'll look after him.

- But you've got to finish your test.

Tell you what... finish the test, and

then you can let Captain Claw go free.

Ah... I do remember the answers.

I'll wait outside.

Johnno's a dummy! Johnno's a dummy!

- Ready? Thank you, Johnno.

- Can I go?

Go on, take him away.

I'm going to put him

in the Kingfisher... see you.

See you.

- Didn't Johnno do too well?

- He's passed without too much trouble.

- Thanks for your help.

- That's OK.

But what's going to become

of him next year?

You, Captain... guard the boat! OK?

It's going to get worse without Julie.

He'll survive.

She's very important to him.

You haven't told him yet, have you?

Come on, Kate, when do I get the time?

- When you try.

- You'll have to do it.

- Whenever I try...

- Why me?

Why does it always have to be me?

Because it'll sound even worse

coming from me.

The first Nol the angels did say...

was to certain poor shepherds

in fields as they lay.

In fields where they lay

keeping their sheep...

on a cold winter's night

that was so deep.

Nol, Nol, Nol, Nol!

Born is the king of Israel.

- Ah, my eyes! - Johnno, stop it!
