"He's a real bad egg." we see Ricky being dropped off at the farm and meeting Bella for the first time and that Ricky has a bad attitude. Based on his clothing we can gather that he is a city kid and is not prepared for life on the farm.
We see Ricky meeting Hec for the first . Hec puts Ricky in his place and establishes that the relationship is certainly not two sided. Rickey gains a respect for Hec and realizes he will have to help out on the farm. We see this because after this encounter Ricky's costume changes into more farm appropriate clothing.
"you only made it 200 meters away from home." Ricky trys to run away but doesn't make it far. When Bella comes and finds him Rickey realizes that Bella cares about him and has a change of hart. Ricky's attitude changes and he becomes more open and happy.
Rickey is happy and decides to stay the second night and not run away. Ricky rather likes his hot water bottle.
"ahhhhhh Ricky Baker ......." Rickey has his first Birthday and for the first time in his life he feels safe and at home. When he gets his dog he becomes really excited and there is no trace of the old rude and ignorant Ricky. now he has a dog there is a reason for him to stay.
