Storyline

Jen and boyfriend Peter are planning a dinner party for six single friends but the three men are all indisposed so Jen asks her three work colleagues. Roy is pleased to sit next to a model but as her face is bandaged after a car crash he is unable to see what she looks like. Moss gets stuck with drunken Margaret, who argues with him but Richmond and the hearty Jessica appear to get on. However Jen discovers that Peter's name is Peter File and, as this sounds very much like paedophile and is embarrassing, she dumps him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Roy: [Jen has just described how she met her new boyfriend] Buying the same kind of cheese. You made a 20 minute story out of it. Have you thought of adapting it into a film?
