Episode Six

David Brent

It is redundancies judgement day and David is told by Head Office that he will be promoted if he sacrifices the branch. True to his innate sense of self-preservation and greed David leaps at the chance for betterment.

The office is shocked but Gareth is most devastated - who will take him seriously now he is no longer Assistant to the Regional Manager?

However a surprise is in store at Chasers - David announces that he has now rejected the job offer in order to save the branch. Could his sense of loyalty finally be coming to the fore? Well no.

Malcolm has discovered that the job offer was withdrawn because David failed a medical test.

Tim tells Dawn he has been promoted to Senior Sales Clerk and his Psychology career has been put on hold. What irresistable carrot prompted this change of heart? An extra £500 a year.

Brent-ism of the episode

"There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is Neil will be taking over both branches and some of you will lose your jobs…

On a more positive note the good news is I’ve been promoted - so every cloud… you’re still thinking about the bad news aren’t you?"

Too good to miss out...

David: "Look whether or not Anton is indeed a midget, or a dwarf-"
Alex: "No he’s a midget"
David: "What’s the difference?"
Alex: "A dwarf is someone who has disproportionately short arms and legs"
David: "Oh I know the ones"
Alex: "It’s caused by a hormone deficiency"
David: "Yeah… bloody hormones"
Alex: "A midget is still a dwarf but their arms and legs are in proportion"
Gareth: "So... what’s an elf?"
