Series 1, Episode 3 - On The Pull

Jeremy meets Mark in the supermarket and asks him to go to a party. Mark doesn't want to go having been rebuffed earlier by Sophie when he asked her for a date.

Further details

Mark decides to go to the party (with his groceries) and meets a teenage girl, Valerie, who invites him to the 'Laserbowl'. They are joined by Jeremy and Toni at the bowling alley where they bump into Sophie and the man she has chosen to go on a date with, Mark's work rival Jeff.

Toni drags Jeremy back to her flat and, as they are becoming intimate, her estranged husband appears.

Meanwhile back at the bowling alley Mark starts to behave oddly, throwing his groceries down the lane at the pins. Sophie leaves with Jeff, Mark brings Valerie home and goes to bed with her. Next door Toni is using noisy sexual intercourse with Jeremy as means of getting back at her husband.
