Jen and boyfriend Peter are planning a dinner party for six single friends but the three men are all indisposed so Jen asks her three work colleagues. Roy is pleased to sit next to a model but as her face is bandaged after a car crash he is unable to see what she looks like. Moss gets stuck with drunken Margaret, who argues with him but Richmond and the hearty Jessica appear to get on. However Jen discovers that Peter's name is Peter File and, as this sounds very much like paedophile and is embarrassing, she dumps him. Written by
