Jen is thrilled when the handsome Philip asks her out to the theatre though less so when Roy and Moss also invite themselves along. The play in question is 'Gay', a screamingly camp musical which Moss loves but Jen begins to question Philip's sexuality and is not flattered when he confesses he fancies her because she looks like a man. Roy meanwhile fakes an accident in the disabled toilet which results in his being loaded into a mini-van bound back to Manchester with other disabled play-goers and Jen is surprised to see Moss working behind the bar after he used the staff toilet.

Moss is referring to George Michael, whose sexual orientation was a subject of speculation until 1998 when he was arrested in an L.A. public restroom for 'lewd behavior'. See more
When Philip is introduced to Moss, Jen and Roy, he immediately detects that Roy is Irish.
This cannot be possible because Roy mumbles "Hello" so softly that the audience can barely hear him. It's not possible for Philip to have heard him very well or to have determined from the single word that he was from Ireland. See more
