"Are Youse Paying This Bill?"
7 March 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Barbara has got the day off work, and plans to spend it at home looking after her cat 'Mr.Kitty-Kins'. Billy takes her out for a meal in his office lunch break so he can ply her with wine, with a view to getting her in the sack.

When he goes to pay, he finds he has left his wallet at home. With no money to pay for the meal, he tries breaking into Barbara's handbag but she hasn't brought it with her. What does Billy do now?

The ultimate nightmare or what? You're in a restaurant with your best girl and cannot afford to even tip the waiter, much less pay the bill. The waiter here is played by the marvellous Bill Pertwee of 'Dad's Army' fame; he looks like Hitler but speaks in a Brummie accent. How the dilemma is resolved is fairly predictable, with Billy climbing out of the window of the men's toilet and dashing off home.

Funniest moment? The contrast between Billy's real predicament and the fantasy sequences where he imagines himself and Barbara in a posh Italian restaurant, replete with gypsy fiddlers. Sally Watts is unrecognisable as a sexier than usual Barbara.
