Synopsis: Patrick Smash (11) was born with two stomachs, and hence the uncontrollable 'talent' to produce ungodly farts. This soon drives his own dad away and makes his social life hell. His only friend is classmate Alan A. Allen, a prodigy genius, who has no sense of smell. Even Alan's invention Thunderpants, which renders Patrick's farts harmless, can't make his space travel dream realistic. However after the invention of an adaptation which turns it into flying fuel, Alan is recruited by the US space center. Patrick becomes word class tenor Sir John Osgood's secret high C farter. Their reunion is even more incredible.

You've got it! Come on!

Do it, babe!

Come on, babe. Push!

Ooh! Ooh! Ooooh!

Push, push.

You can do it!


Ooh, it's a big 'un.

Oh, I can feel it coming.


Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh, dear!

- One more push. Oh!

- Come on!

One more!

Come on! Try and push!

(increasingly rapid beeps)

I can see its head.

Come on, Mrs Smash.


It's a flyer!

- (applause)

- Well done!

It's a boy, Mr Smash.

That was the first day

ofmy life, ever.

- (baby cries)

- (sobbing) Grab this, Doc.

For about 30 seconds... mum and dad were

the happiest people in the world.

- (doctor) Say cheese!

- And then it happened.

(baby farts)


(farts through baby intercom)

And it never stopped happening.

Your turn, darling.


(steamy whoosh)

(Ioud fart)

(china smashes)


Go to sleep.


Dad found my problem

really hard.

But for a while,

he coped really well.

(muted fart)


One time...

...he really thought he'd solved it.

- (farts)

- I'd play in my playpen for hours...

...while he'd read the paper.





- (fart roars)

- Aaah!

That time,

Dad went to hospital for ages.

When he got home,

he had to work nearly all the time.

(mother) Don't go, please!

In the end, Dad decided

to go to work forever.

- (car engine starts)

- I can't do it any more!

- (wails)

- (sobs) Get away from the car.

(mother wails)

After that, my sister Denise

didn't talk to me much.

Even my mum

went a bit quiet.

Got your lunchbox?

So I was really looking forward

to going to school...

...and making some friends.

Give Mummy a kiss.

- (farts)

- Oh.

(teacher) Morning, children!

(children) Morning, Miss Little.

Children, this is Patrick Smash.

Patrick Smash, say hello.

(Ioud fart)

It wasn't a good start.

- (children chant) Fart boy!

- Sit down, children.

All the kids pointed

and shouted.

Except one.

That was the day I met Alan.

(chuckles and farts)

We did everything together.

I don't know what it was,

wejust clicked.

Alan was great.

He liked me for who I was.

And he didn't care

about my problem.

(Ioud fart)

Alan had no sense ofsmell.

Alan was my best friend.

Alan was my only friend.

But every day was a constant

struggle with my problem.

And every day, I tried to avoid...


Look who it isn't.

Patrick Smash.

What are you doing in my corner

of the playground, Smash?

You ain't nothing

but a big, fat loser.

Give us your lunchbox.

(children shout and laugh)

- Ugh. What's this crap?

- It's special food... help me with my problem.

No, it's not. It's crap!

I want jam tomorrow. All right?

Hello, Patrick.

- How progresses the day?

- All right, thanks, Alan.

Oh, no! We've been invaded by

creatures from the planet Zorg!

(boys giggle)

The nearest star, Proxima Centaura,

is four light years away.

It is debatable

that this stellar body...

...holds within

its gravitational pull...

...a planetary system of any kind...

...let alone one that goes by

the appellation of Zorg.

- If we widen our...

- Shut up, Zorg boy.

Good one, Damon.

You suck, Zorg boy!

(kicks lunchbox) Idiot.

What am I, Patrick?



I'm a blithering idiot.

My attempt to embarrass them

with my astrophysics...

...was, quite frankly,

a foolish waste of time.

Alan, why do you talk

in that funny way?

I speak with clarity

and precision.

The ability to utilise language

is just one of my many talents...

...talents which will enable me

to realise my dream.

- What dream?

- I am an inventor, Patrick.

Currently, I am engaged

in the creation of a machine...
