Phil and the stranger he's just brought home (yes, you do sense a theme running through this series) are exchanging pleasantries, and Phil is visibly on edge. The guy, Harvey, seems like he could be trouble, especially when he holds up a small bag of white powder and asks Phil, "Do you mind? It's good stuff." Phil tells him he doesn't mind, but he obviously does. Sensing that Phil can be talked into almost anything, Harvey then asks if he can spend the night. Permission is granted, and Phil smiles weakly. It's funny, because I never took Phil to be the sort that's easily steamrolled, but this show does seem quite eager to portray gay men as willing to do anything for a shag. I don't know how I would feel about that if I were a gay man, but as I haven't heard any outcry about it from anyone, maybe it's just me.
Vince and Jonathan are sitting, with Vince looking down while Jonathan stares at him intently, when Jonathan suddenly grabs Vince and kisses him. He then laughs nervously and says he has to pee, and retreats to the loo. Vince uses this opportunity to -- what else? -- phone Stuart. As he talks into Stuart's answerphone about this nice guy who works for the BBC and has actually met Ruby Wax, Stuart is writhing around on his bed with the two men from the club. Stuart, not being one to let such a Kodak moment go unrecorded, has a video camera set up to capture the orgy on film. In other news, no one in the audience is very shocked, including your intrepid recapper. In fact, I think the only thing that could surprise me at this point would be if Ricky Martin emerged from the closet, bent over in front of Stuart and begging to be buggered. Even then, it would only warrant a raised eyebrow.
Back at the Dolphin Hotel, Spike is playing with his (pet) snake and telling his captive audience of Alexander and Dane about his job as an undertaker. Specifically, he's telling them about how dead people's eyes always spring open, but since the family obviously would be disturbed by such a sight, the corpses must be fitted with contact lenses which have spikes on the end, in order to keep their eyes closed. Yum. "Right," he says, getting up. "I'll wash me knob." As he closes the bathroom door, Dane says to Alexander, "He's [Britain's most prolific sexual torturer and serial killer] Fred West!"
