The Office Series 2, episode 5. First aired 28/10/2002

in this episode...

test yourself
What is David's radical new gameshow concept called?
answer

It's Comic Relief Day and the office is awash with wackiness. All 19 stone of Keith is squeezed into a bright yellow Ali G costume, Sheila has become Wonder Woman and Gareth is hopping on one leg.

The hilarity climaxes when Neil and Rachel stage a truly impressive dance sequence from Saturday Night Fever in the reception area. David, desperate to outdo them, embarks on his own spontaneous dance. A jaw droppingly horrendous performance that would be charitably called "interpretive".

Brent-ism of the episode
David Brent"What would Lenny Henry say? I think we know - imagine him going out of the door and Dawn French is going 'Where you going? You haven't done the washing up, you haven't put the rubbish out-' 'Do it yourself! I gotta go and save some Africans!'"

Dawn's money raising idea of selling kisses for a £1 results in a close shave with Gareth's friend 'Jimmy the Perv'. However things start looking up when Tim puts in his quid and The Kiss finally happens. David isn't having such a good time - Neil and Jennifer at last bite the bullet and tell him that he is being made redundant.

too good to miss out...

Simon: "You know Bruce Lee's not really dead don't you? Yeah it's in a book - what he did was he faked his own death so that he could work undercover for the Hong Kong police infiltrating drugs gangs and The Triads"
Gareth: "Yeah I reckon that's true"
Tim: "Yeah I reckon that's true 'cos if you were gonna send someone undercover to investigate The Triads you'd probably want the world's most famous Chinese film star"

Gareth: "He's a wierd little bloke! Look at his cartoon face and his hair, he looks like a Fisher Price man, and his rubbish clothes... it makes me think there's something wrong with you for a start but yet in my head I'd still do you so I'm confused."
