Getting to Know You

"It Takes Two" is the 15th episode of Series 4 of The Dumping Ground and the 61st episode overall. It aired on October 28, 2016.


Sammy discovers Tyler's old box of pranks and decides to become a prankster, eventually sending Tyler up the wall when he keeps bothering him. Elsewhere, Ryan's sister, Chloe, moves into Ashdene Ridge.


  • The main plot is similar to Oh, Mo!, only with Sammy in place of Mo, who will not stop bothering Tyler, who takes Tee's place, and leads to everyone else realising they should not have left all the pressure on one person. Perhaps ironically, Tyler tries to ask Mo to get Sammy off his back, only for Mo to fob him off.
  • This is the second time someone has climbed onto the roof of the Dumping Ground, after The Burnywood Menace, though no one falls off this time.
  • Final appearance of Sammy.
  • First appearance of Joseph.
  • Hannah Moncur returns as Chloe in this episode.


  • When the episode was first uploaded to the BBC iPlayer, a picture from the next episode, Getting to Know You , was used. It was eventually changed to one of Sammy and Finn.
