The Birthday

Him & Her, Series 1 Episode 2 of 6

Steve and Becky are young, unemployed and lazy. All they want to do is stay in bed, drink, eat and have sex - so they do. They don't want to get a job - so they don't.

We watch their endless days hanging about Steve's bedsit played out in minute detail, warts-and-all and in real time, as they live happily and ambition-free, milking the state. When friends and parents try and visit they can't get rid of them quickly enough. Upstairs neighbour Dan finds endless reasons to come down, lonely and looking for love, while Becky's sister Laura insists on popping round with her loveably psychotic fiance Paul. All Steve and Becky want is to be left alone.

This comedy series reveals the hilarious and often shocking truth of what really goes on behind the bedroom doors of today's 20-somethings. And, to be honest, today's 30-somethings. And 40-somethings. And 50-somethings. And 60- and 70- and 80-somethings ... because sometimes we all secretly wish we were young, unemployed and lazy.

It's Steve's birthday and everyone wants to go out and get plastered - except Steve. He's ill in bed. Or at least he tells his mum and everyone else he is. When Becky, Laura, Shelly and Paul can't persuade him to go out and celebrate, Steve stays in and - with a little help from Dan - makes very good use of his presents.
