In an effort to stop office Lothario Bill Crouse pursuing her Jen asks Moss to make up an excuse for her so he tells Bill that Jen has died. Unfortunately Jen is unaware of this and carries on working, being mistaken for a ghost. After Roy has tried to pull the glamorous Julie from the fifth floor but only succeeded in attracting Judy, the chubby cleaner, a memorial service is held for Jen, complete with a musical tribute from Elton John. Still unaware that she is meant to be dead Jen attends, believing it to be the Employee of the Month presentation. However Small Paul has genuinely died so the service is altered to cater for him.

Elton John: #Small Paul you're gone now / You pushed that trolley a little too hard / You felt the twinge, it was your heart / And you're dead now / And though you were only four feet eleven / There's no height restrictions on the gates of heaven / You're no longer around, you're in the ground / We're all the same height when we're lying down.#

A truly great comedy. If you've never seen it watch it as soon as possible.
20 August 2013 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This was a truly excellent show. There are great one liners and many memorable scenes throughout all four series scenes. Each of the main characters were strong and funny by themselves but put them together with a great script and this is the result, TV excellence. The Work Outing and The Haunting of Bill Crouse are my personal favourites.I was disappointed that the show ended when it did but perhaps it ended at the right time. There have been other shows that continued way past their time. the shows writer, (Graham Lineham) also wrote Father Ted and there are one or two scenes that are somewhat similar . For me there hasn't been a finer comedy in many years. Not to be missed.
