Episode 1.5 - New Girl

David interviews for a new secretary (despite having been told to downsize) and chooses 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.
