Episode Three


It's Trudy's birthday and in traditional highbrow office style she receives some sex toys - namely a leather basque and a neon pink dildo with an inspired sense of movement.

Meanwhile David's radical new made-up business strategy of "team individuality" fails to impress Neil.

However David receives an ego boost worth 1200 an hour when headhunters from the public speaking agency Cooper and Webb arrive and for some inexplicable reason want him on their books.

Chris Finch

Rachel and Tim are still getting on like a house on fire, although Dawn is trying to maintain her place in Tim's affections with practical jokes at Gareth's expense.

As Trudy's party gets into full swing David is miffed to discover that Finchy and Neil are old friends.

Finally, in an effort to impress with macho banter, he announces rather too loudly, just exactly what he'd like to do to each member of The Corrs (excepting Jim of course).

Brent-ism of the episode

"I don't live by 'The Rules' you know, and if there's one person who has influenced me in that way of thinking, someone who is a maverick, someone who does 'that' to the system then it's Ian Botham."

Too good to miss out...

Jude: "If you could have a working lunch with anyone living or dead who would it be?"
David: "Martin Luther King and the Dalai Lama. And Rory Bremner. Just 'cos they could get a bit heavy those two and he would lighten things up - probably do impressions of them - and me!"
Jude: "What has been your biggest disappointment?"
David: "Alton Towers"
Jude: "Oh... I've never been"
David: "It's rubbish. Next!"
