Series 1, Episode 6 - Judgement

Crunch time comes and David is told by Head Office that he will be promoted if he sacrifices the branch. True to his innate sense of self-preservation and greed David leaps at the chance for betterment and in a true stroke of genius delivers a speech with rather flawed logic.
