To fend off the increasing staff disillusionment a Training Day has been scheduled. Dawn’s engagement to Lee is on the rocks and Tim begins to think that he may at last have a chance with her.
Staff training proves monotonous until Gareth announces, during a motivational exercise, that his ultimate dream involves two lesbian sisters.
The training is derailed somewhat when David reveals he was in a band, produces a guitar and regales the staff with a number of his self-penned songs.
Meanwhile Dawn slips out from the session and reconciles with Lee.
Post lunch the vacuous team building exercises continue until Tim feels he can take no more, announces his resignation and leaves.
He returns moments later to ask Dawn out – but as usual Tim is humiliated when she reveals that her and Lee are still together.
Brent-ism of the episode
"The thing is we’re both good in our own fields. I’m sure Texas couldn’t run and manage a successful paper merchants. I couldn’t do what - actually I could do what they do."
Too good to miss out...
Dawn: "He proposed on a Valentine’s day, although he didn’t do it face to face, he did it in one of the little Valentine message bits in the paper.
I think he had to pay for it by the word, because it just said ‘Lee love Dawn, marriage?’ which, you know I like, because it’s not often you get something that’s both romantic and thrifty."
