Episode Five

David Brent

David interviews for a new secretary and choses blonde Karen. His efforts to impress end spectacularly badly when he accidentally headbutts her. Meanwhile Donna’s late arrival at work inevitably sparks the rumour that she is sleeping with a colleague

A drooling Gareth fails to find out more when giving Donna Health and Safety training. However he does succeed in scaling new heights of patronisation by teaching her how to correctly position a mug on a PC and lift a box.

Meanwhile Tim has handed in his notice and is considering studying Physchology at university.

At Chasers David pulls until he charmingly informs his squeeze that she has onion breath.

Gareth, also having a run of luck in attracting a member of the opposite sex, gets more than he bargains for when her husband wants to join in.

And Donna finally reveals her new boyfriend is… Ricky.

Brent-ism of the episode

"Does a struggling salesman start turning up on a bicycle? No, he turns up in a newer car - perception, yeah? They got to trust me - I’m taking these guys into battle, yeah? And I’m doing my own stapling."

Too good to miss out...

Gareth: "It’s a fun place, but it’s full of loose women. My only problem with that is venereal disease, which is disabilitating right, especially for a soldier.

And it’s irresponsible to the rest of your unit as well. Alright, you’ve been under attack for days, there’s a soldier down, he’s wounded, gangrene’s setting in, ‘who’s used all the penicillin?’ ‘Oh, Mark Paxton sir, he’s got knobrot off some tart.’"
