Caroline has been advertising for a colourist to finish off her cartoons and is disappointed with the candidates until Richard arrives. He is bad tempered and sarcastic but he gets the job. Caroline had just broken up with Del who works for her publisher and manages the Caroline in the City comic strip products. He already has already moved on with a new date and, in desperation for some oneupmanship, Caroline chooses a new date by throwing fruit out of the window. He doesn't turn up but Richard saves the day by going as her date.

Can you please just make it disappear?
I'm sorry, are you allergic?
No, I just don't like cats, or dogs, or anything that runs up to you and pees on your feet when you come home.
Well then, we may have a problem because I tend to get very excited when people come over.
Not even a smile.
