Monday Monday: Episode 4

Monday, 3 August 2009, 9:00PM – 10:00PM

Alyson is distracted and isn’t in the mood when Roger makes an inappropriate comment about Butterworth’s products. She brings in Dan, an old PR associate, to help with damage limitation and tells Roger to keep a low profile.

What she’s not telling anyone is that she’s having to spend a lot of time with her father who’s dying in a hospice, and finding it really hard juggling this with her work commitments.

Due to a flood at Vince’s place, Steven stays on the sofa at Sally and Natasha’s. Steven feels let down that Alyson wouldn’t let him stay with her and is put out that she seems distracted – and that she’s brought in her ex-boyfriend to help out with Roger’s PR gaff. Steven finds himself growing closer to Sally. They end up alone together at home, but their romantic moment is ruined by a call from Alyson.

Roger fails to keep a low profile and insists in joining in with Christine’s supervision of the candidates for the graduate trainee posts. Christine’s barely hanging on as it is and when Roger insists on taking them all on a pub crawl, she insists on Sally coming to help her out, putting paid to Sally and Natasha’s plans for a night out with Steven.

Roger’s pub crawl gets completely out of hand and ends up with two of the candidates being taken into custody for not paying a bar bill at a lap dancing club. It looks like Roger’s second gaffe is the ammunition Alyson needs to get rid of him, but she gets news that her father has just died, and she finds herself choosing to bail Roger out rather than bury him. Roger doesn’t understand why, but realises that he needs to make sure he doesn’t have any other skeletons in the closet and tells Jenny that they need to wind up Uxbridge Holdings.

Max has made Vince fire safety officer to compensate for him not being marketing assistant. When Max sets fire to himself on his birthday cake candles, Vince gets a bit carried away with the fire extinguisher and loses his position.

Sally decides to go for it with Steven and invites him to dinner. But then she learns that Alyson’s father has just died, and tells Steven he needs to be with her. Steven promises Alyson that he won’t leave her – but we know he’s now wishing he was with Sally.
