Rose goes to Mickey's flat, like he's going to be at all comforting, and the first thing he does is welcome her and then slap her ass and order her to remove her clothing. He does this with a rather charming and laddish air, so it doesn't come off as bad as you might think, but there's a horny basic-hetero level to his interactions with Rose that's a bit oversimplified, considering the complete lack of conflict it's going to generate when Rose gets all Companionate. She tells him to shut up and he offers her coffee. "Only if you wash the mug," she tells him. "And I don't mean rinse, I mean wash." Her fondness and basic uninterest in his bullshit is really refreshing. I love how she's one of those shopgirls that has a fella, you know? "Yeah, that's Mickey. He'll be drunk soon." She asks to use his computer, and he laughs that she'll use any excuse to get in the bedroom, and when she closes the door behind her, he gets a hilarious worried face: "Don't read my emails!" Maybe he responded to one of those penis enlargement spam emails. Or maybe I'm only assuming everybody gets those.
