Series 1, Episode 1 - Flushed
Steve is desperately struggling to get rid of clingy girlfriend Jane, with the advice of best friend Jeff. It's made ever more complicated when he meets the charming Susan.
Steve is attempting to dump Jane but she won't accept it. In the same bar, Patrick is trying to dump Susan, but she humiliates him by saying she didn't really think they were actually going out together. Jane and Steve have a short-term but very physical reconciliation in the ladies' toilet. Steve bursts out of the cubicle to get a condom, trips over, and lands at Susan's feet. They've met before - she's a workmate of Steve's best friend, Jeff. Neglecting to tell her that he has another girlfriend locked in the cubicle, Steve asks Susan out.
On their first date, all their friends find a reason to tag along too: Jeff, in mortal terror that they will talk about him; Jane, still under the illusion that she's Steve's girlfriend; Patrick and Susan's best friend Sally, on a rebound date. Having tricked Susan into showing them one of her breasts, the six sit down to dinner.
