Series 2, Episode 5 - Jane And The Truth Snake
Having been sacked from her job, Jane ends up in a somewhat confused state, creating a puppet sidekick named Jake, from a pink sock. Patrick, meanwhile, decides he has no option but to dump his new girlfriend, Linda, as she's ruled out ever having a threesome.
Jane's boss Jeremy sacks her from her job reporting traffic jams after she instructs London's drivers to close their eyes and meditate. A distraught Jane attempts suicide with some pills she was given at a party. In her addled state she creates a pink sock puppet called Jake the Snake, who always tells the truth.
Having said some truly appalling things to Sally, Susan and Steve, Jane uses Jake to insult Jeremy too. He declares she'll never work for the station again, but the public send in so many letters of support that Jane is reinstated.
Meanwhile, Patrick is about to dump his latest girlfriend, Linda, because she's ruled out the possibility of having a threesome. She announces that she's changed her mind, and Patrick rushes back to her flat in anticipation. His disappointment is hard to hide when Linda introduces him to his new playmate for the evening: Jeff.
