Roy, having bet Jen he can go all day without saying 'Have you tried switching it off and on again?' and Moss are caught up in a bomb scare in town, which they use to play truant from work, Moss stealing some 'Grand Design' DVDs from a store. Back at the office Jen is subject to hiring and firing chief Ben Genderson threatening to sack her. Moss is arrested but when the bomb deactivating robot fails to work Roy says 'Have you tried switching it off and on again?', thus losing his bet though Douglas was too busy watching the bomb coverage on TV to sack anybody and the 'bomb' package turns out to be a balloon - which scares Roy when it goes 'pop'.
