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.

Or whenever?

Mum, I'm back! When's tea?

- In a minute.

- It had better be delicious!


- Ooh!

- Oh, oh!

Tell me you love me. Tell me you love me.

Oh, yes, I like you. Oh, I like you.

Get out! I'm just looking at holidays!

It's just holidays!

Jay, can you come downstairs, please?

Your grandfather's died.

Ooh, you've got a lady there,

you bad boy!

Has she got nice titties? Suck on

the lady's titties. Suck them, go on!

It was our last ever day of school,

something my new stepmum had

experienced only four years ago herself.

So the head of Sixth was going to say

a few inspirational words.

And if ever there was a man for the job,

it wasn't lunatic giant Mr Gilbert.

I will forget each and every one of you

almost immediately.

So, if you do find yourself

at a loose end next year,

and think it might be nice to pop in

and see how we're getting on,

don't. This isn't the Dead Poets Society

and I'm not that bloke on BBC Two

who keeps getting kids to sing in choirs.

I especially don't want to hear about

how well you're settling down at uni

or how much growing up you've done

in the past 12 months.

At best, I am ambivalent

towards most of you,

but some of you, I actively dislike,

for no other reason

than your poor personal hygiene

or your irritating personalities.

I hope I've made myself clear

on this point.

And in case any of you think

I'm joking... I'm not.

I assure you

that once my legal obligation...

to look after your best interests

is removed,

I can be one truly nasty fucker.

Good luck with the rest of your lives

and... try not to kill anyone.

It reflects very badly on all of us here.

Slightly more upbeat

than I was expecting.

They say your school days

are the best days of your life.

But the only way
