Series 7, Episode 3 - Job
Charity begins at home, as Jack and Victor offer a helping hand to Methadone Mick; a parking fine from the past comes back to haunt Winston; and Boabby's award glory goes awry.
Methadone Mick reveals he has a job interview but no suit, so Jack and Victor pull out all the stops to give him a makeover. Realising his smile leaves a lot to be desired, they make a trip to see their old pal, Cammy, a dentist with somewhat dubious practices.
Winston's shocked when bad news comes calling: he owes thousands for an historical parking fine. If only he could get his hands on the fine and make it disappear.
At the Clansman, Boabby receives his invitation to the City Chambers to be awarded his Glasgow Good Citizen Civic Medal. As Jack, Victor and Isa spout an array of excuses why they can't possibly go, Winston makes a surprisingly heartfelt plea to be his plus one. Could the fact that the ceremony is taking place above the parking fine office have something to do with it?

Jack and Victor's shoes won't fit - Isa may have a solution.
Good deeds abound in this week's visit to the codgers of Craiglang. Jack, Victor and Isa make over Methadone Mick for a job interview, Boabby is due to receive a citizenship award at the council chambers, and an uncharacteristically selfless Winston offers to accompany the perennially unpopular barkeep on his big evening. Could the latter have anything to do with Winston and Shug staking out the council offices? A Scottish sort of Ocean's Over-75s, if you will.Mark Gibbings-Jones, The Guardian, 21st October 2016
Playing a dodgy dentist in tonight's Still Game is a role Kevin Whately has been dying to get his teeth into.John Dingwall, Daily Record, 21st October 2016
Jack and Victor get rid of some old stuff at the charity shop, including a souvenir teaspoon from Troon. There they meet Methadone Mick, who's trying to get some clothes for a job interview. Jack hopes he won't buy his recently donated silverware as he'll no doubt be "cookin' up junk on ma wee Troon spoon". Instead, they loan him clothes for the interview and take him to a dodgy dentist (Kevin Whately) to get his teeth fixed. He needs to spruce himself up to impress his prospective employers, though Methadone Mick's best suggestion is that he change his name to Methadone Michael.
Elsewhere, Winston gets a demand from the council for a £4,000 debt or he faces jail, so he manages to tag along to the City Chambers with Boaby, who's there to collect a medal for looking after Pete the Jakey. Winston intends to slip away to the council offices to sort it out while Boaby is up on stage "getting his stupid badge".Julie McDowall, The National (Scotland), 21st October 2016
