Series 2, Episode 2
After a threatening meeting with Ronnie at the dockyard, Vincent is pained to learn that he is getting a new employee: Ronnie's inexperienced, dim-witted and Stratego-obsessed son, Ronnie Junior.
With pressure mounting, Vincent convinces Lavender to seduce his sales rival Jo, as a way to gain information on her successful business tactics, much to Sam's annoyance.
That is not the only marital obstacle Vincent has to navigate either, as he is forced to attend Sam's annual staff BBQ - an event dominated by awkward small talk and a mixed-doubles table tennis tournament. Sam is paired with her boss Andrew for the tournament and makes it to the finals against her husband. Vincent ultimately emerges the bigger man, allowing Sam and Andrew to take the trophy to save Sam from criticism over her table tennis skills.
The problems continue at Cachet, however, when the team's plot to use a local Page 3 model as advertising bait backfires. RJ makes a mess of the promotional flyers whilst Fitzpatrick's negotiation skills leave Vincent £1,000 out of pocket, with his model instead working for Jo and Walshy for free. RJ has one last strategic move up his sleeve though, and soon Vincent finds himself in a stand-off between Ronnie, Sam, an angry Irishman and three-time snooker world champion Steve Davis.
