The Doctor begins pulling various levers then pauses. "Riley, Cam, where do you want to go? I can take Molly on our random adventure, but I can also take you two anywhere in the universe you'd like!" The Doctor informs them.

Cam shrugs and politely smiles. "We're fine going where ever you and Molly go," Cam replies.

The Doctor tilts his chin down and smiles. "Riley, where would you like to go?"

Riley blushes. "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii."

"How about Hawaii 1967, the year Elvis Presley visited? Then Molly and I will go at random to some place. Does that work with all of you?" The Doctor suggests.

Riley turns to Molly. "Molly, it's your decision," Riley states.

Molly smirks. "I'm not going to hold you two back. Let's Riley and lover boy have their fun in Hawaii and then we'll have family bonding in where ever the TARDIS takes us," Molly laughs spinning around in a chair with Gerard in her arms.

Cam smiles at his joyful baby sister. The Doctor sets off to Hawaii where they drop Cam and Riley off just as Elvis gets off the plane. Then the Doctor flips the TARDIS on the random switch and they fly off towards God knows where. They don't even realize they've landed until the TARDIS makes a loud boom. The two scurry out and look around. The place looks like any other London street. The only thing that makes it stand out is a sign advertising a UFO over London during the year 1991 that is freshly plastered on a brick wall. Molly finds a stray newspaper on the ground.

"February first, 1991," Molly states.

The Doctor tilts his head. "February first... why does that date sound so familiar?" The Doctor mumbles. The Doctor claps his hands together. "Either way, I know a place where we can get some hospitality!" The Doctor begins striding off and Molly tries her best to keep up as they climb stairs to the second floor of an apartment complex. "It's not much, but at least it's something," The Doctor sighs knocking on the door.

A pudgy woman with long bleached blond hair in a little black dress opens the door. She smiles widely. "Hello! You must be the babysitter! It's Heather Moore, right? Beth told me about you. I'm Jackie Tyler, it's a pleasure to finally meet you," She greets.

Molly does her best not to act shocked. "Yes, I'm Heather! Beth and I go back! This is my partner in crime. His name is--" Molly begins to lie.

"John Smith. I am John Smith. It's great to finally meet you, Ms. Tyler," The Doctor says.

Molly glances at him from the corner of her eye. Up until now, the Doctor had no problem introducing himself to people and saying he's the Doctor. What has made him bring out this John Smith character all of a sudden? "Oh please, you both can just call me Jackie. I suppose you want to meet the little monster you're watching over now. Come on in! Rose, sweetie! The babysitters are here!" Jackie calls.

A little blond girl skips over. "Mummy, please don't leave! I'll miss you! What if the monsters get me?" She cries.

"Rose, don't be silly! You're going to be fine! Mr. Smith and Miss Moore will be here if you need anything. Go watch telly or something!" Jackie commands.

Molly bends down. "Hi Rose... I'm Heather."

"Hi Heather," Rose almost whispers.

"I bet all these monsters that are out to get you are pretty terrifying," Molly states. Rose shyly nods. "Let me tell you something, Rose, John and I are going to get rid of those terrifying monsters. Nothing will ever hurt you again after tonight."

"Do you promise?" Rose meekly asks.

Molly smiles. "I promise."

Molly turns when she hears Jackie sigh. "Well, I'm going out. Thank you for coming on such short notice! The girls just had to throw me a last minute birthday bash! I love you Rose! I'll see you later tonight!" Jackie calls as she leaves the apartment.

The Doctor crouches down next to Molly. "So Rose, let's take a look at those monsters," He proclaims. A smile slowly creeps across Rose's face.

Rose takes Molly's hand and leads her down a hallway. "They hide in my closet. They say they're here to help me, but they scare me and won't leave."

"What do these monsters look like, Rose?" Molly asks when they reach her bedroom door.

"They're these red demon looking creatures that crawl all over me. They poke me and laugh when I cower away from them," Rose cries.

When they get into Rose's room, the Doctor scans Rose's closet. "It's just as I thought; they're most popularly know as Bedtime Troublemakers. They're rotten little scoundrels that runaway from the outermost belt of the Milky Way and generally hide in closets or under beds."

Molly's eyebrows crinkle together in confusion. "How common are they?"

"You know when you suddenly jolt up in the middle of the night, because you hear a noise or feel something tickle you?" The Doctor rhetorically asks.

Molly hesitates for a moment to think about that. "Can you stop the monsters?" Rose begs.

The Doctor rubs Rose's back. "We just have to wait until bedtime and then we can take care of the little jumpers," The Doctor assures. "How about this: Heather and I will start up a pot of tea and you put on your favorite movie for all of us to watch?" The Doctor suggests.

"Okay!" Rose pipes skipping towards the living room.

Molly sharply turns toward the Doctor once Rose is out of earshot. "Doctor, why are we lying to her? You've told everyone who we are. Why do we have to lie to her and my grandma all of a sudden?" Molly demands to know.

The Doctor pauses to remember the fact Jackie is technically Molly's grandmother. "Rose can't know who you or I are. In fourteen years she's going to be pretty terrified if she sees the same Doctor she met when she was five," The Doctor explains.

"But Doctor," Molly croaks. "I at least want her to remember me."

The Doctor places both hands on the side of Molly's face. "Molly, you are Rose's daughter. Well, you're going to be Rose's daughter from her current perspective. She will never be able to forget you."

"What if she already has, though?" Molly asks fighting back tears.

The Doctor chuckles. "Molly, she's been talking to you and she /wants/ to see you again! There's no chance she has forgotten about you and ever will forget about you."

Molly closes her eyes and sees the Doctor in his tenth regeneration holding her in his arms. She's seen this scenery before except from Donna's perspective looking down on the Doctor holding his daughter Jenny's body. The biggest difference is Rose is standing in Donna's place. "You're my daughter, and we've only just got started. You're going to be great. You're going to be more than great. You're going to be amazing... Molly Tyler," He whispers. A smile curls on both his and Rose's face.

Molly gasps flashing back to reality. "What did you see?" The Doctor immediately asks.

Molly grins. "It was my dad... just saying hello," Molly giggles.

The Doctor and Molly then go into the kitchen and the Doctor starts up a kettle of tea. They stay up until 8 PM watching "Peter Pan" when Rose begins to get drowsy as any five year old would. They finally need to fight the aliens in Rose's closet. The Doctor stands outside the door as Molly helps Rose get changed into her pyjamas-- an adorable pair of purple flannel with bunnies printed on them; Molly had a similar pair of when she was younger. The Doctor comes back in the room when Rose is all tucked in and plops at the end of the bed with Molly. The cackles of the Bedtime Troublemakers echo as they scurry across the floor. Rose pulls her blankets up to her nose.

"John, how do we stop the Bedtime Troublemakers?" Molly nervously asks.

"The Bedtime Troublemakers are generally children, even if they are 500 years old, that need to be put to sleep to stop their madness. Heather, how did your mother always put you to sleep when you were much younger?" The Doctor hints raising his eyebrows.

Molly hesitates. "My mum when I was really little? Like, before I 'moved' little?" Molly peeps. The Doctor nods. Molly gulps and turns to Rose. "My mum always used to sing a song to me when I was little. It was called 'Castle on a Cloud'. Would you like to hear it?" Rose nods. Molly clears her throat. "There is a castle on a cloud. I like to go there in my sleep. Aren't any floors for me to sweep. Not in my castle on a cloud," Molly pauses and let's out an uneasy breath in hopes of fighting back tears.

"There is a lady all in white," The Doctor continues to sing. Molly looks up at the Doctor and he flicks a smile. "Holds me and sings a lullaby."

"She's nice to see and she's soft to touch," The Doctor and Molly sing in unison. "She says, 'Cosette, I love you very much.' I know a place where no one's lost. I know a place where no one cries. Crying at all is not allowed, not in my castle on a cloud."

Crickets chirp throughout the room now. The Doctor smiles. "That noise; that's the sound of the sleeping Bedtime Troublemakers. Whenever the little aliens scare you, sing that song and they'll go away. Sing it every night if you need to!" The Doctor cheers.

Rose smiles. "Thank you John and especially thank you Heather. You both sing beautifully. I hope I can sing as well as you when I'm older."

Molly fights back tears. "I'm sure you will, Rose. I'm sure you will be brilliant when you're older. Goodnight Rose," Molly whispers.

"Goodnight Heather. Goodnight John," Rose mumbles.

"Goodnight... Rose," The Doctor lingers on each word.

The Doctor and Molly stay in the living room telling stories and briefly watching the telly. At 11:30 PM, Jackie comes home surprisingly sober. She gasps when she doesn't see Rose. "Did you actually get her to sleep?" Jackie gawks.

The Doctor chuckles. "Yes and it didn't take that much effort."

"Oh my goodness, I don't know how I could ever repay you!" Jackie cries.

"Don't worry. Just spending the evening with her was enough, Jackie. It was a pleasure meeting you," Molly states.

"Will you two ever be able to watch her again? You were simply extraordinary with her," Jackie sighs.

The Doctor grins. "We'll see her again soon enough," The Doctor promises.

"Alright, just give me a ring if you're in town! Bye you two!" Jackie calls.

The Doctor and Molly wave as they continue down the staircase back to the TARDIS. "So that's your grammy and your mum. What did you think?"

"I can't wait to meet my mum when she's not six," Molly laughs. "I like grammy a lot. She's funny. My mum seems like she's a great person when she gets older, I can tell already."

"You're going to love them," The Doctor assures.

"Do you think I'll love them enough to forget about Cam?" Molly sighs.

"Molly, you'll always love and remember Cam. Your family there will just be another support system and stick with you through all your troubles just like Cam did. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant," The Doctor points out.

"Doctor," Molly says once they reach the TARDIS.

"Yes, Molls," The Doctor responds.

"I love you. I'm glad we found each other and you're watching over me," Molly admits.

"I love you too, Molly. I'm glad we're together and I have the pleasure to be with you," The Doctor confesses.

Molly giggles and blushes. "Let's get in the TARDIS. It's freezing out here and I want to meet Elvis in Hawaii too!" Molly states. The Doctor laughs and follows her into the TARDIS.
