Storyline

In order to be 'proper men' with street cred Moss and Roy learn football jargon from the bluffball.co.uk website and are befriended by a trio of Cockneys in a pub, with whom they go to a match. Later Roy innocently acts as getaway driver when the trio commit an armed robbery, ringing the police as he is unaware that his new friends are the robbers. When they find out he has to be rescued by Moss, who cannily takes some of the loot for himself. Jen meanwhile is dating Michael but she thinks he looks like a magician. As a result he learns some card tricks but he is rubbish so she dumps him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Michael: But why? I don't understand, I thought it was going so well. Was it something I did?
Jen Barber: No, no, it's hard to explain.
Michael: Tell me, Jen! For God's sake, you owe me that much.
Jen Barber: You... look like a magician, Michael. Alright? I'm sorry, but you do. I didn't notice it at first but then someone mentioned it and now I can't get it out of my head, it's driving me mad.
Michael: [confused] But I'm not a magician.
Jen Barber: I know! That's why it's not good that you look like...
