The work outing

1 I've just won 450 grand playing poker! Well done! I saw that one coming, Mickey73! That's my rent sorted this month! And I can buy that new Oh, no, I've lost it all again Philip! Hello, hi.
This is Philip, from sixth.
This is Moss, this is Roy.
- Hi.
- Hiya.
So, what brings you to my lair? Not that I'm some sort of animal! Or maybe I am Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! I was just wondering if you had the latest Heat? Yes, yes.
There it is.
Sorry about this.
I don't suppose, maybe you'd like to come to theatre tomorrow night, maybe, or I'd be delighted! - He means me, Moss.
- He was looking at me.
No, he wasn't.
I think he was! You're not even in his eye line! Philip, who were you talking to? Me or Jen? - Do you like the theatre? - Never been! But I've always liked the idea of the theatre.
The smell of the grease, the roar of the paint! I've often thought if I hadn't ended up in computers, I would've gone into the theatre.
But you've never been to see a play? - No.
- Why not? Never had the interest.
Are there any famous people in it? It's a pass for me then, thank you.
- You haven't been invited anyways.
- Wait Laura Nightly's in it.
Laura Nightly from The Build? There's no invitation! Show me the invitation I guess you guys could come too if you wanted.
I know people in the show, tickets won't be a problem.
Great! That's settled then.
Great! I will give you a call and then give you the details.
How's that? That is perfect in itself, Philip! Thanks for coming down, man! Catch you later! That could have been a date, there Now, it's a work outing! Sorry! I forgot the Heat! It's it's What? He actually did want to borrow the copy of Heat.
- So? - Well, it's just you know - No, I don't.
What? - I'm just surprised.
Why? It's just I don't know many heterosexual men who read Heat.
What? He's gay just because he reads Heat magazine? Well, he's either gay or a woman in her early twenties.
Why else would he ask me out on a date? Are you sure he meant it as a date "date"? Are you sure you're not going along as his gal pal? If you're talking about who I think you're talking about, then the answer is yes, he is gay.
How do you know? Everyone knows.
And once more, he's been gay, since Wham.
We were talking about Philip! He borrowed Heat.
He borrowed Heat? And he knows people in the theatre.
That's not a euphemism.
He actually does know people in the theatre.
Anyway, it's a date.
I'm sure it is.
Why else would he ask me out? Well, don't take this the wrong way, but could he have thought you were a man? - Let's get a taxi.
- It's a ten minute walk.
I don't like walking.
Why do you just not come, then you wouldn't have to walk anywhere? I won't spoil your romantic evening with the gay man.
He's not a gay man! He reads Heat! Hey, where are you lot off to? Look! Richmond's still alive! We're going to the theatre.
Do you wanna come? No, thanks.
And you shouldn't go either.
Why not? A new wind is blowing! Last night, I was stood from my slumber by a crow calling three times.
Well, you know what a crow sounds like.
Passing to my window, I trod on a piece of Lego.
Oh, it went right in the heel! Turning on my television set, I noticed the reception wasn't great.
Not terrible, just not great.
Hear me well! No good can come of your trip to the theatre tonight! No good at all! And if you ask me That's just bloody rude! Where is my Heat? A gay musical, called "Gay".
That's quite gay Gay musical? Aren't all musicals gay? This must be like the gayest musical ever made! It's got some pretty good reviews! "The story of a young man trying to find his sexuality "in the uncaring Thatcher years.
Includes scenes of graphic homo eroticism.
" It's set in the 80's! Graphic homo eroticism? Are they gonna get them out? You're not comfortable with your sexuality? I'm comfortable with my sexuality.
I don't wanna be slapped in the face with their sexuality.
Look! There is Philip! Look! He's leching at that lady! Thank God for that! He's just an ordinary ignored man! Hey! You're already here! What are we doing, Roy? This isn't us.
It takes place in the past! Forget the play.
Philip knows the cast! It's all about the backstage party afterwards.
Those things are great.
You go to them telling they were brilliant and it's free wine all night.
Besides, I really wanna meet Laura Nightly.
Hey there, guys! It's great, isn't it? Great.
We should really pick up our tickets.
I know someone who gets the tickle! Sorry, I love doing that to him! This is Jerome.
He does publicity for the show.
He got us our tickets.
Great, thanks.
This is Jen, and Moss and Roy.
How is it going? My God, you're Irish! I love Irish people! They're just mad, aren't they? They're just mad! We're all insane, yeah.
You'll love this! It's great crack! I'm mad for crack! Quick everyone! The show's about to start! I hope Laura Nightly isn't gonna be dressed up like toyer or something.
- Who is she in The Build again? - She plays that heroin addict - who gets stabbed in the face? - She is lovely.
Isn't she lovely? Oh God, here we go.
It might be right.
How bad can it be? Welcome to the United Queendom! Brilliant! United Queendom! He can't say that, can he? Check that asses! I'm a friend of Dorothy! I'm a friend of Dorothy! She is my friend! This is insanely brilliant! Hold my hand No, that's not my hand! I love willies! Okay, I'm completely satisfied! Don't leave! It's rude! It's too gay for me.
I thought I could handle it, but I can't.
There'll be the interval soon.
I'm captivated, Roy.
Calm down.
At least, it can't get any worse.
All right, get them houselights up and let's have a look at you! Are you wearing that shirt for a bet? Audience participation! Go, go! What have we - here! - Hello! Tell me! Who wears the trousers in this relationship? What? Oh, no.
We're not homosexuals.
We're just very good friends.
So, you never had a look? - At what? - His bum! I've seen it, when he thrusts it in front of my desk, or, should he bend over to pick something up.
I'd love to work in that office There's nothing sexual going on.
I do like Roy, but I'm not "curious".
What were you engaging him for? He was asking me questions, I couldn't just ignore him.
It's a bit rude, Roy.
So what do you think of it? I think it's fabulous.
Every value I've ever held is being questioned, and I'm loving it.
You don't like it, do you? The songs are good.
No, they're not! Hum one of the songs.
Willies, willies! I like willies! It's "I love willies".
- I love willies! - Sir, could you keep it down? - I'm not going back in there! - Oh yes, you are! No.
I'll wait out here for you, but there's no way I'm going anywhere near that thing.
You can't leave me alone in there.
