Those four naive boys comprising "The Inbetweeners" are entertaining without a doubt, but sometimes you just want to throw 'em a helping hand, or the world's largest lifeboat, to rescue them from death by humiliation. Each week, we're spotlighting the guys' most embarrassing moments from the current episode, and detailing how someone a teensy bit smoother might've wiggled their way out of the situation. Consider it a service to you, dear reader, so you never have to endure the same kind of ongoing shame.
The scenario: Jay has his sights (or loins, at least) set on a new lady: the jacuzzi at Simon's country club, of course! As can be expected, the act of makin' love to a plastic nozzle doesn't go so well, and after spending two full hours with his wiener stuck in one of the jets--and an audience of wrinkly old folks cheering on his ability to stay in the bubbly bath for so long--the whirlpool is shut off, and Jay's below-the-belt probs are thrust out there for all to see.
The takeaway: As oblivious Neil was busy guzzling pina coladas, Jay only had himself to count on to make his lemons into lemonade. By joining in on the countdown, he could have taken control of the situation by being a part of the record-breaking rally, and once the last second ticked away, and the jets turned off, he could have been prepared to tuck his member into his pants like a gentleman and been the hero of the day.
The scenario: At the senior class' Slave Auction, Will rounds up everyone's moolah to bet on his lady love, Charlotte, but decides to go for someone else first to make himself appear less desperate. That someone else? An African-American gentleman going for a crazy-low price. Eeesh. And, in the middle of the kerfuffle, which uses up all of Simon's money, the guys only assign a desperate Darius a single role: driving.
The takeaway: Driving?! You can't be serious! Here, the guys had a senior who was forced to spend time with them, and maybe even save Jay's bits from a jacuzzi hole, and they relegated him to a chauffeur? The boys coulda cashed in on their forced friendship to tag along to a house party that Charlotte and Carly might have been chillin' at. Eyes on the prize, people!
The scenario:When Will's dropped off at his house by driver Darius, he gives him a bro-hug to say thanks, and gives his mother--who's watching from the window--the mistaken impression that he's into dudes.
The takeaway: Will, ya should have thought of this one sooner! With his mom sure that her son was gay, the mini-adult could have capitalized on some perks. Like, having girls in his car, in the basement or in his bedroom anytime he wanted since each would be equally un-incriminating. All he'd need is a girl who'd be willing to spend that much quality time with him. Charlotte...?
