Season 1, Episode 6: Rabbit Test

19 December 2005
Shameless flirts Steven and Becky bring passion to the job- by rivaling in sizzling seduction, showing skin on pictures and making virgin Jim blush and bulge. Jack hates vegetarians as befits a chef, but sets that aside for carnal contact with Julia, who ends up getting seduced by more meat then his manly sex-machine. Jim fails to refuse signing for a delivery of rabbits- they're live bunnies, and putting them on the chopping-block is beyond the macho men or more then their relationships may be worth.

After Jim happened to save Teddy's life, he promises Jim everything, even what he meant to exclude: teaching him to cook blowfish, illegal in the US.
