THE SERVICES

Written by: Hugo Blick, Rob Brydon
Keith has a job as a chauffeur, there's excitement about seeing the boys for the first time in over two years, and there's concern about appropriate gifts.

"I said, 'Watch out for the Child Catcher. If anybody offers you lollipops and he's got a long nose, say no. Unless it's a confectionery seller who just has a big nose... in which case, don't draw attention to it."
