The IT Crowd Episode Guide

Season 2 (2007)


Title: The Work Outing
Episode Number: 1
Original Air Date: Aug, 24 2007

Jen is asked on a date by “Phillip from Six” to watch a play, and when Roy and Moss doubt the heterosexuality of her date, they invite themselves along in the hope of hilarity ensuing. Roy and Moss’s suspicions are further reinforced when the play turns out to be a production of “Gay! – A Gay Musical”, during which the two are mistaken for a couple during the audience participation segment. During the intermission, Moss and Roy find their path to the lavatories blocked by an attendant, so they use the staff and disabled facilities respectively. However, when confronted by the rightful users of the toilets, Roy pretends to be disabled, and Moss a staff member. Jen confronts her date about his sexuality and when Jen mentions his interest in her Heat magazine, he comes clean, saying he hoped his relationship with Jen would work because she looks like a man.


Title: Return of the Golden Child
Episode Number: 2
Original Air Date: Aug, 31 2007

Moss discovers an internet site that calculates when people will die by analysing their personal details. Despite Roy’s refusal to partake, Moss discovers that Roy will die on Thursday at 3pm. Denholm, threatened by the Police who want to investigate “financial irregularities” in the business’s accounts, commits suicide during a meeting, and his funeral is set for the same time. Roy buys a new mobile phone with lots of features but, finding himself disappointed by the weak vibrate setting, he allows Moss to “pimp your phone, girlfriend”. Having set the vibrate function to the highest setting, the phone mistakenly goes off during Denholm’s funeral and to make matters worse, Roy mistakes it for his impending death and reacts accordingly; he screams and swears. Before the funeral, Denholm’s successor announces his plan to fire the entire IT Department because he despises them, but he finds himself fired when Denholm’s son Douglas (Matt Berry) – his rightful successor – storms the funeral and takes over Reynholm Industries. Roy and Moss give Douglas the now unwanted mobile phone, and having felt the vibrate function go off in his trousers, he declares it takes him “nearly at the station”, giving a hint of things to come.


Title: Moss and the German
Episode Number: 3
Original Air Date: Sep, 7 2007

Worried that his life is stagnating, Moss enrolls in a German cookery course. However, it turns out that the advert contained important translation errors, and the German is actually a cannibal who is seeking someone willing to be eaten (a parody of the Armin Meiwes incident). Meanwhile, despite some exaggerated attempts to stop him, Roy is trying to watch a pirated DVD from South Korea, and after his failed attempts, Roy deceptively volunteers to be the German cannibal’s next meal so that he can watch the film on the German cannibal’s impressive home entertainment system. However, when the police raid the house, it seems that the German’s plan is not what the police are interested in. Elsewhere, Jen, who recently started smoking again, finds the only place in the building where she can now enjoy a cigarette, which is not unlike Soviet Russia (a parody of bleak and melodramatic Dr. Zhivago-style films). The Korean movie with the title is in fact ‘Shaun of the Dead’.


Title: The Dinner Party
Episode Number: 4
Original Air Date: Sep, 14 2007

Jen has finally found love with her new boyfriend, Peter File. To celebrate their happiness, they host a dinner party for six of their single friends. Their joy turns to disappointment when all of the men are unable to come, so Jen invites Roy, Moss and Richmond to take their places. The tension is already high before their arrival as Roy and Moss continue to mock Jen’s boyfriend’s name, which has a canny likeness to the word pedophile. On arrival at the house, Jen drills the three of them on how to act normal, and for a while things seem to go well. Moss pairs up with the first of the three single friends, and the two of them inadvertently start acting as if they are married. Richmond unexpectedly hits it off with the second of Jen’s friends, and things go far between them. Roy however is left with what he believes is the “dud card”, a woman who was recently in an accident, and whose face is adorned with bandages. However, when he learns she was once a model, his interest is piqued – but due to her face being obscured by the bandages he cannot determine whether or not she is still as beautiful as she used to be, which influences his final decision about whether to ask her out.


Title: Smoke and Mirrors
Episode Number: 5
Original Air Date: Sep, 21 2007

Roy comes back from a stag night wearing lipstick; he passed out and the other men decided to put makeup on him as a prank. Jen loses concentration during an important meeting after wearing a “bad bra” to work. As a result, Moss gets over his usual sensitivity to ladies’ undergarments and with the help of his mother’s underwear drawer, designs the ultimate bra. Naming it the “Abracadabra” and fearing retribution from established bra companies, Moss adopts a pseudonym he has trouble remembering. As the design goes forward, both Jen and Roy help prepare him to pitch his invention on well-known TV series Dragons’ Den, in exchange for a return of the eventual profits. However things start to go down the drain on arrival at the television studio – while waiting to do a TV interview, Moss confuses his pseudonym with the name of a spokesman for the Ministry of Defence, and ends up on a television news interview discussing the Iraq war (a parody of the Guy Kewney / Guy Goma mixup). Things go from bad to worse for both Jen and Moss when he fails to rid the bra of its Achilles heel – randomly catching fire.


Title: Men Without Women
Episode Number: 6
Original Air Date: Sep, 28 2007

Douglas travels far and wide in his quest to bed Jen and is given a love potion by a mysterious blind Irish sorcerer. On his return to Reynholm Industries, and following a lengthy campaign of pointless phone calls to the basement, Douglas offers Jen a position as his Personal Assistant. Having realised she’s wasting her life in the position she’s in she accepts, but this leaves Moss and Roy free to wreak havoc in the basement as they engage in a day of not wearing trousers and playing a form of golf where Roy tries to pot a ball in Moss’s mouth. However this soon wears thin, and as Douglas continues his efforts to bed Jen, he resorts to the sorcerer’s potion, which turns out to be Rohypnol. Roy and Moss eventually rescue Jen from Douglas’s sexual advances, but soon find themselves threatened by him; she locks them both in with him and pandemonium ensues.
