Jane is questioned on the spiritual side of life.

To view this sketch you'll need RealPlayer.


Jane and Jeff are both having difficulty keeping the faith.

Jeff is sent into a spiral of tension when his attractive colleague, Wilma, asks him out for a drink. Is Wilma about to make a move on him, or does she just want to be friends? If she's interested in his arse, then surely he shouldn't be talking to her, what with him having a girlfriend. But to refuse the date would be to assume that Wilma fancied him, and she certainly hasn't made that clear. Unable to face this challenge alone, Jeff rigs up his mobile phone for the date, so that his friends can hear his conversation with Wilma, and give him advice. Wilma puts her cards on the table straight away: she fancies Jeff and she wants to know if he fancies her too…

Meanwhile Jane is thrilled by the arrival of a new member of staff at the station, right from the moment he smoothly parks his huge, red sports car into a tight little hole. Mmm. Jane is not the sort of girl to be put off by the fact that James is the station's religious broadcaster, nor by the further complication that their first date is at a Christian discussion group. Hope begins to fade when James tells her that he doesn't believe in sex before marriage (although Jane does helpfully offer to take her top off if that will ease the situation). Despite this inauspicious beginning, James gives Jane a passionate kiss. Why is he bothering with her? Because he has faith.

The Wisdom of Jeff: "When God made the arse, he didn't say, 'Hey, it's just your basic hinge, let's knock off early.' He said, 'Behold ye angels, I have created the arse. Throughout the ages to come, men and women shall grab hold of these, and shout my name.'"


Most embarrassing moment:
Patrick is in the bar giving instructions to Jeff, who is on his date with Wilma. Jeff's girlfriend, Julia, breezes into the bar, says "are you talking to Jeff?" and snatches the phone off Patrick. Julia asks Jeff, "do you love me?" and the same time as Wilma asks, "do you fancy me?" My toes are curling just thinking about it.

Quick question:Which two words does Jane keep confusing in this episode?
