Who Stole Our Monkey?
1 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

While the St. Swithins students watch Paul down a yard of ale, a bunch of Highcross students steal their mascot - a stuffed gorilla in a flat cap who rejoices in the name of 'Muriel'. 'The rape of the ape' as Dick calls it. Upton and co. are not about to let the matter rest, and so dressed as nurses, they invade Highcross and steal theirs. The Dean receives a strongly worded letter of complaint, and decides to take disciplinary action...

One of the worst episodes of 'House', with a script that seems more appropriate for 'The Bash Street Kids'. We expect better from Graham Chapman and Barry Cryer. A condom makes an unexpected appearance in one scene.

The cast go through the whole episode shouting their lines, Martin Shaw being the worst offender. 'Muriel' gives the funniest performance.
