The Inbetweeners

Synopsis: The exploits of four friends, who are socially only marginally above what one of them calls "the freaks", are presented as they grow from their late teen years into adults and as they go on their quest, usually unsuccessfully, for such grown up things as beer and sex. Simon Cooper, Jay Cartwright and Neil Sutherland have been friends for some time. Insecure Simon's main quest in life is to get long time friend, Carli D'Amato, to be his girlfriend. Jay is the big talker whose stories, especially about his sexual conquests, are more fantasy than reality. And slightly dim-witted Neil is generally two steps behind everyone else in comprehension of life, and who is always defending his father from beliefs that he's a closet homosexual. Into the group comes its fourth member, Will McKenzie, who met them when he transferred into their school, Rudge Park Comprehensive, at the start of sixth form, as Will's newly divorced mum could no longer afford his private school tuition.

So, you see the thing is, Dad,

I could reapply next year,

but if I defer and try again for Oxford,

I'll probably lose my place at Bristol...


which is a good university

but not my dream.

Do you think

it matters in the long term,

or is the subject and standard of degree

more important?

So, I got married.

- What?!

- To Suzy, we got married.

You mean remarried.

This time it's for keeps, though.

- When did this happen?

- A few weeks ago.

I was going to invite you,

but I know how you are around people.

How am I?!

Awkward. Weird.

I don't live in a cave.

I live in suburban London.

I spend my entire life around people.

Much as I'd like to,

it's almost impossible to avoid them.

See, this is what I mean.

Well... Was it a big wedding?

No. Couple of hundred close friends

and family.

- And it was perfect.

- Mm.

I can't believe you didn't invite me

to your wedding.

So, what are you up to this summer?

Oh, you're changing the subject?

- Mm-hm.

- Fine.

I dunno.

I guess I'll be going on holiday.

Oh, this should be good.

What have you got planned?

Trans-Siberian Express?

Fossil-hunting in Dorset?

Or maybe something even weirder.

No, actually. Something normal. I'm going

somewhere normal, with my normal friends,

to a place full of normal people.

And you, of course.

# Wahhhhh

# Gimme love, gimme love, gimme love

# I really need it

# Gimme love, gimme love, gimme love

# Just set me free, yeah... #

In case you were wondering,

that was me with my father.

And this is where I live -

not with him, but with my mother.

It's a long story. Well, not that long.

He shagged the work experience girl

and then left us.

So, just clichd, really.

Plus, it only happened two years ago,

so I don't even get the luxury

of blaming my various personality defects

on their divorce.

Anyway, that's how I ended up here -

the very definition of suburbia.

Safe, comforting, stifling, boring -

and I couldn't wait to fucking leave.

Maybe that's unfair, as they do say

that you never know what goes on

behind the net curtains of suburbia.

Although, in my friend Jay Cartwright's

case, you can have a pretty good guess.

Are you ready to have some fun, big boy?


I'm feeling sexy!

Take off mask, baby, let me see you.


Do you promise this'll be

properly filthy, yeah?

Oh, yes, like bomb explode from in penis.

Sexy like... mmm...

finger up bumhole.

Christ, you make me so erect.

Oh, yes, you also make me erect.

Now, put in card details.

Oh, I'm so horny.

Don't forget security number and bank.

Mm! Come on, hurry up.

All right, Jay's mum! Where's Jay?

Oh, hello, Neil.

He's at home, updating his CV.

Ooh, excuse me.



It's a bit over, is that OK?

Not really.

- Excuse me! My prawns?

- Sorry, mate, I finish at six.

Cheers for that.

- You don't have to thank me every time.

- Oh, right. Cool.

You're so fit.

Simon, we need to talk.

Oh, not talking!

- Look, it's been great so far...

- It's been amazing.

Literally the best year of my life.

My spots clearing up,

not moving to Wales,

and now you.

And I'm definitely getting better

at kissing, aren't I?

I think we should break up.


We're both going away to uni soon,

and it'll be too hard to keep it going


- It won't be fair on either of us.

- I don't mind.

You will mind, though. You will.

I bloody won't!

Plus, I'm going on holiday soon,

so there's that.

Why? What are you planning to do

on holiday?

Maybe you should just go home.

I just need some space to think

at the moment.

OK, fine. So, I'll see you later, yeah?
