Storyline

The boys believed Jeff was safe by telling Wilma he's faithful to his girlfriend, but as the girls predict she forces him either to say she's not attractive or to accept meaningless sex. Jane pops in during an endless demonstration that a driver's license is no guarantee against turning parallel parking into a lethal hazard for cars (especially Patrick's) and pedestrians. She mindlessly 'cues' Jeff to the question 'what kind of girlfriend is both current and ex?' (He escapes answering why he didn't tell her about their date by answering 'a dead one'). Meanwhile Steve brought Susan's wrath on himself by failing to cue the required response, and Sally hands her a frightening tool: she has worked for the agency 'Man test', which still sends out sirens to prove they can be seduced into infidelity. Wilma promises to respect Jeff's fidelity but insists to give him a lift and use his bathroom, but a sassy surprise expects both of them and the friends who turn up as relieve cavalry.

Goofs

When Wilma goes up to Jeff's flat to use the loo, Jeff turns his girlfriend Julia's framed picture down later in the scene. However, if you look carefully, when they first enter the living room, the picture is already down. You can see it in more than one occasion during the discussion that takes place right before he turns it down. See more »

Quotes

Jeff: I have a girlfriend!
Wilma Lettings: So you keep saying, so why are you here?
Jeff: Well, I-I I just...
Wilma Lettings: She really does exist this girlfriend?
Jeff: Oh, oh yeah she exists. She's very much an existing person, she's got tons of existence.
[beat]
Jeff: Well not too much existence, I don't mean she's huge or anything. She's somewhere between completely imaginary and a truck. If you can picture that.
