  3. UNCONDITIONAL SEX 07/10/02

Jeff tries to explain his current / ex-girlfriend.

To view this sketch you'll need RealPlayer.


We pick up the action where we left off at the end of the last episode: with Jeff trying to work out how (or even whether) to refuse unconditional sex with Wilma. Meanwhile, his friends are still listening and offering advice via the mobile phone.

Jeff is no match in this debate for "devil woman" Wilma. She knows every argument that Susan (the expert in getting her own way) has ever used. Jeff paints himself into a terrifyingly extreme conversational corner, until he blurts out that the reason he can't have sex with Wilma is that his girlfriend is dead.

Wilma drives Jeff home, but decides to try once more to seduce him when they get to his flat. Unfortunately, Jeff's girlfriend, Julia, has been struck down by flu and is asleep in Jeff's bed. Seeing Julia's bare feet poking out from the duvet, Wilma makes the not-too-far-fetched assumption that this strange man who can't stop talking about his dead girlfriend has in fact just killed her. Wilma flees the flat, and Jeff says to Steve, "well, I think that basically went OK.".

The Wisdom of Jeff: "I'm not bad. I've never been bad... I'm fairly new to mild naughtiness."


Most embarrassing moment:
Even by Jeff's standards, this episode is one long rollercoaster of embarrassment. The lowest of low points is when Wilma asks him the name of his dead girlfriend, and he stammeringly makes one up. "It's not as if she comes when I call."

Quick question:What's the name of the actress who plays Wilma?
