Now he's got a job interview with Dougie and is given a day's trial to prove he can cut it..and see if Dougie thinks him a worthy apprentice. If your idea of a first day at work involves picking up dog shite; listening to Dougie's Buddhist theories on life and love; sharing an 'office' which turns out to be a cupboard in a pub, complete with carpet, kettle and a Buddhist shrine and being ordered to find a replacement kidney for Willy the gnarled old barman, then Gabriel's and Dougie's story will seem like your average cowboy adventure. An ice box, a Stanley knife, a wanking postman, and Gabriel's nifty footwork with a donor card later, and the young apprentice has got the job! Dougie thinks he could be the yin to his yang.
