Lockie Leonard, surf-rat, arrives in Angelus with his family to discover they're to live in a house that's slowly sinking into a swamp. Then Lockie meets the locals. There's a weird kid called Egg from the bogan tribe. And then there's Vicki Streeton, the first girl he's ever met who causes him to forget how to speak.

Written by Keith Thompson
Directed by Tony Tilse

Lockie questions why Sarge insists on being so "different". He must do it on purpose… if he doesn't, then it's way too scary to think about. It's hard enough fitting into a new town without Sarge drawing attention to the family — like insisting the thing they need is a pet sheep named Cyril. Mum would rather a new washing machine, while Phillip would've preferred anything else after becoming the subject of Cyril's terror campaign. Has Sarge completely lost it this time? Or will Cyril, as Sarge predicts, reveal a trick or two up his fleece?

Puberty is like one of those garden make-over shows: you get a lawn where there wasn't one before. And then, just for fun, they throw in a new water feature. Now Phillip isn't the only one wetting his bed… But perhaps the worst thing about puberty is hormones. And Lockie's have arrived in a big way. First, he speaks his mind to his visiting grandparents and then makes a fool of himself in front of Vicki Streeton. All up, puberty is looking to be a bumpy ride for Lockie. Philip gains a new perspective on his problem when his grandparents visit.

After five weeks in Angelus, Lockie is still an outsider… which is weird because Lockie isn't a rebel, he'd like nothing better than to be one of the gang. John East suggests Lockie join the school football team, a certain passport to social acceptance. Maybe footy could also be the path that leads to winning Vicki Streeton's heart? Meanwhile, Mum struggles to fit in — with Nan and Pop, who are more interested in golf than their daughter. Lockie manages to convince his grandparents to spend some quality time with Mum at the golf course, where Mum finds an unexpected ally… in Vicki Streeton.
