Himself - Sweet Billy Pilgrim


Roy hurts his back and sees a masseuse, actually a man, Paul, who kisses him on the arse and whom he takes to court to have him restrained whilst Douglas falls under the spell of a new religion - Spaceology, which makes him wish on the stars. His first wish is for a helicopter - so he buys one for himself; the next one is for a tattoo so he buys a book on the subject and tattoos a helicopter on his hand. The last wish is for a metal hand, which is accomplished when the tattoo turns septic, requiring amputation and a false hand, which he tests by smashing up the office. Jen meanwhile falls for Norman, the dull keyboard player in the band Sweet Billy Pilgrim but ditches him when he gets thrown out of the group. Written by don @ minifie-1
