Are you scared, Hannes?

- He's brave. He'll make it.

That's not true.

- All of us went up.

Even Peter, who's known to sh*t himself.

- I do not!

But what will we do

if he falls off?


The pendants are at the top.

If you get it, you're in.

Yes, keep going Hannes!




- Hannes, come down from there now!

Yes, Hannes dear, get down!

You are still so little! - Little?

How stupid of you!

- Is that how do you talk to your boss?.

Whoever wants to be a crocodile,

must go up. - I don't have to.

As Olli's sister...

- Get him or I'll tell Dad,

that you secretly surf the web.

- And I'll tell mom about the lipstick.

- No more homework!

- No more gummi bears.


Shut up, Frank!

Good, that's a girl.

- I'm up!

- You see. Totally harmless.

- Ah!

Spazzo, take it easy!

This is so dangerous!


- Get him!

- He is on the roof, that's the goal.

Now he's a crocodile!


- Not good!

- Help!

- Maria, call the fire department.

- Help!

- No connection! I'm going to town!

- Help me! Help!

Olli, look out, the ladder!

- Ah!


Mom? Dad!

Is this the fire department? Someone's

hanging from the roof of the brick factory!



- He's coming down.

- Everyone take cover.

- Help!

- Frank, wait.

Ah! Ah!


Mom? I just can't.

I'll call back. - You got through?



Oh god.

Well, come on.

I'm so glad nothing happened to you.


Why? Because my mom

doesn't call as much as yours?

You dim wit! Who sh*t into your brain?

Who are you?

- We are the crocodiles.

- The suburban crocodiles!



Oh, you're a superhero.

Oh, oh.

- I'm back!

- Mom! How was it at the store?

- Like usual. - Many customers?

- Not for us.

Will you look for a well-paying

job after graduation?

Then you could always pay the rent.

If we don't run off back

to Grandma's again.

- Bon appetit.

- Bon appetit.

Did you do something special today?

Me? Ah... no. Why?

- I spoke with Mrs. Koschmieder

next door. - Oh yes.

Something happened.

The fire department brought me home.

- Did you call the Fire Department?

- No.

Is your skateboard broken and did

you hitch a ride home? - No.

Is it better if I don't know why?

I'll wash up.

And do ironing for a week.

If I work all day,

I need to know...

that you're not up to no good.

Is that asking too much? - No.

Take care of yourself. Otherwise I'll

no longer have a man around. - Yes.

I'll do that.

Look, now I'm the crocodile.

Ah, ah! These are Grandma's

best dishes! I'll do it.

I won't even stumble.

- What is that?

- It came today, darling.

- I won't go to the special school!

- Special School for the Disabled.

It'll be easier access for you there.

- I have 158 friends.

For SZV students there are computer things.

- Still 157 more than you

But they're not here.

They can't look out for you.

- Mom, my hair!

- Look, we'll make a deal:

If you make friends by the end of holiday,

who respect you in school, just one.

Otherwise, you'll probably be better off

at the school for the physically disabled.

Unlike you, I'm fine being alone.

If you have no friends at holiday's end,

we'll try the special school.

Until then, I have 10 friends!

Does Kai Wolermann live here? - Yes.

I would like to have a word.

- Yes?

- Yes.

Nice. Kai.

- Darling?

- Leave me alone!

I'll get him.

- What do you have there?

- What do you want?

You got the fire department.

I wanted to say thanks.

- Then just say it.

- I did. How did you see it?

At night, I'm a superhero, you know?

- Sure. Once again, thank you.

And a speedy recovery.
