Tim is busy getting ready for his next date with Sophie while Daisy
is busy making a cracking stew for all the gang. Tim's preparations
get put on hold however when Sophie rings and tells him she has
to work late 'cause someone messed up the cover of 'Total Cult'.
Daisy asks Tim out to the pub and he agrees to join her. Mike is
asked to walk Colin while Daiz is out, before he goes on his reconnaissance
mission that night. As Tim and Daisy enjoy the night, Colin runs
off, leaving Mike panicked and turning to Brian for help. Tim and
Daisy's night turns sour when Duane Benzie shows up and a gang of
Teenage Gangstas threatens to make the night a little bit ugly...
open on Tim and Daisy haring around in the darkness. It's Camden
and it's 23.07. Suddenly their run is halted by a red escort braking
in front of them. Out swagger a gang of kidz, looking eager for
blood. Tim asks them what the problem is. The leader says that Tim
know what the problem is. Tim thinks and asks whether it's got anything
to do with the Kia Ora advert. The moment isn't helped by Daiz mimicking
it. Daisy tells them they won't be able to beat Tim up because she's
there. But the leader tells her not to worry, she'll get an invite
to Thump City (Pop: 2) too. Daisy and Tim look at each other, she
gestures down. There's a knowing, an understanding and then she
screams, let 'em have it
back to Meteor St, 6 hours previous. Daisy is doing a Jamie Oliver
with a potato. She's making a sexy chicken stew. Tim comes out of
his room and asks Mike how sexy he looks. Very comes the answer.
Now, turning his attention to Daisy, who's still Olivering in the
kitchen, is he sexy? She dishes out damning praise by saying yea,
and it's nice he's not gone to too much of an effort. Whilst Tim's
off changing again, Daisy explains to Mike that this stew will be
the bomb because of the oreg-ano she's adding. Woooo MAMA!
Suddenly, the phone goes. It's Sophie. They enjoy a little stilted
conversation where it is made clear that Tim's told Sophie a lot
about his flatmate: they're friends, they share a flat and her name's
Anyway, Tim's just getting his clothes on
he comes out and
takes the phone, his voice going as he says hello. Sophie explains
that she can't come out tonight as there's been a misprint on 'Total
Cult'. However, she says that they can 'do it' next week. Tim puts
the phone down and walks to his room, before screaming that he can't
believe she's sleeping with her boss.
goes into one about this how it all starts with late nights and
cancellations. Before he gets to out of control, Mike gives him
a slap to shake him out of it. Tim, now a bit more normal, drops
onto the beanie and starts playing on his PSX. Daisy offers to go
out with him to the pub. Tim isn't sure though, but, as he'd only
sit in, he reluctantly agrees and she goes off to get ready
knocks at the door and says that Twist's in a mood, though he's
not sure why. Brian has respect for women though, especially as
they seem to have psychic links and are Gaia's foot soldiers to
Mike has an answer however; men have that link too. And he proves
it as a full on gun battle breaks out with first Tim and Mike and
then Tim Mike and Brian. As the battle reaches it's crescendo, Daiz
appears, all glammed up and soon, her and Tim are on their way out
she goes though, daisy asks Mike what he's doing. He's on manoeuvres
at 2100 hours (9pm). She asks if he'd mind taking Colin out for
a walk at 8pm (2000 hrs). Mike agrees and Tim and Daiz are soon
on the streets, avoiding minicab touts and making sure Tim's stuff
is in the safe hands of a Primary School teacher lookylikey and
discussing their potential night
suggests taking the tube to Soho and going to a gay West-end gay
bar before a night of theatre by an angry young playwright with
a swear word in the title, a coffee bar discussion, xylophone music
in a jazz club and the last tube home
Tim however, suggests the tube to Camden getting munted on the way.
Then going to the nearest indie bar to laugh like twats, then a
low level high street boozah where they will then A. fall over,
B. throw up or C. fall over and throw up.
the flip of a coin, we're transported to a generic indie bar, populated
with generic indie peeps. Several tequila slammers in, discussions
fire in randomly and we learn that the pair wanted to be Monkey
and Elvis, though that's clearly ridiculous.
in Meteor St., Mike brings back Colin from his walk. But, as he
looks away, Colin runs off. Mike panics and confesses to Brian that
he's been naughty. Brian takes a bit of convincing to leave the
Twist picture he's made, but soon he's with Mike, looking for the
lil beardy one.
and Tim are soon talking about Sophie. Tim seems really chuffed
with her, but asks whether Daiz has anyone special. Daisy doesn't,
her special gift seems to put paid to that. Tim isn't convinced
though, as she's smart and sexy. Anyway, he goes to the toilet,
saying that he bets some geezer will be chatting her up when he
he gets there, Tim engages a kid in conversation. The kid seems
a bit off, but soon asks whether he has any puff to buy. Tim says
he has, but only enough for him and his dawg. Tim's joke falls on
bad ears though, as the kid doesn't remember the Kia Ora ad. Tim
goes back up to the bar, but maybe the damage has already been done..?
gets back to the bar only to find that Daiz has pulled a guy, but
it's Duane Benzie! They sit there, laughing as bad images and flashbacks
fill Tim's synapses. Suddenly, they confront each other and Tim
makes sure Daisy realises what kind of person she's talking to.
After much puffing out of chests and fake deep voices, it is clear
that Duane is now back with Sarah, but she's been working late,
with a lot of overtime. Tim suggests that maybe history is repeating
and walks out of the pub, Daisy follows, but not before she gets
Duane to pull her finger.
Tim's left his keys behind though and Duane has maybe got the chance
to take his revenge
another offer from a minicab pimp, Tim and Daisy walk right into
trouble, in the form of the kid from the toilet and his gang. They
mug the duo and take the puff from Daiz's pocket. Forlorn, Tim and
Daisy find themselves in a High Street pub. Tim can't believe the
red hand gang have robbed him and he can't believe that Sophie is
shagging her boss.
Daisy tells him to calm down and to reap advice from Marsha
Marsha was gonna be an Olympic hopeful sprinter, but some pissed
pillock in tight trousers knocked her off her bike and broke her
leg in 1967. He also introduced her to booze's pain relief miracle.
They married in '69. If she hadn't got knocked off, she could've
been anywhere now, even on TV
admits he knows that he's being stupid and paranoid but it's because
he's been hu-u-u-u-u-rt. He doesn't think of Sarah though and all
the things they could have now
Tim's slip forces Daisy to
slap her mate back to reality.
Meanwhile, Duane throws their house-keys onto a long haul lorry,
laughing to himself. Elsewhere, the gang of kids realise they're
smoking not grass but oregano and head out for revenge on 'Blondie'.
closing time rings out, Tim and Daisy thank each other for a good
night out and make some plans for Daisy's impending birthday. Suddenly,
Tim realises he's lost his keys in the other pub and they set out
to run back before it closes.
the way back, we rejoin the action at the beginning of the episode.
And as Daisy tells Tim to 'let them have it' a mock gun fight breaks
out, one that ends with everyone on the floor. In the aftermath
of confusion, Daisy and Tim make a break for it and jump into a
The gang suddenly snap back into reality and pile into their car
to give chase. However, they soon run into Duane's car and as he
gets out to lay into the leader, the other boys cleverly jump him.
Tim's house-keys, flick out onto the street in front of number 23,
just before he and Daisy get back in the minicab. They ring the
bell, but no one is in. So they sit their till Tuesday comes, freezing.
In a moment of clarity, Tim justifies recent events by saying that
love always comes along when you least expect it. Then, with a clatter
to break the moment, Colin arrives in front of them, presenting
Tim's keys. They jump up to let themselves in just as Mike and Brian
return from what they think has been a fruitless Colin hunt.
everything returned to normal, it's stew time and, with her 'special
stuff' added to the mix, the gang are soon well on the way to a
serious case of the munchies
