What about when Alan Suger spotted something on Raef's CV.
''You faced death many times.'' Where have you faced death?

The boy's final error - which seemed to make all the difference was that they tried to unload the last of their stock to an office who didn't care whether they bought it or not, hence the derisory offer that the boys had little option but to accept.

The girls on the other hand took the better option of selling to a restaurant where the owner was clearly thinking "ooh I could sell this on at a tidy profit" and they therefore got a much better price than the boys did. Not sure if that accounted for the different but it would have been pretty close.

All in all though it was a monumental balls up from pretty much all of them - I mean did none of them realise that £5 for a lobster is ridiculously low - either they've never ordered it in a restaurant or, if they have, they haven't picked up the tab. Makes them look very out of touch.

As for Alex - yeah I'm surprised he didn't lamp the weedy David Cameron look-a-like barrister but then he seemed to have a real chip on his shoulder when Raph said that he could get on with a Prince and a pauper thinking that he meant that he (Raph) was the Prince and Alex the pauper - no, numbnuts - it's a figure of speach that wasn't aimed at you!

Think it was £130 difference between the teams final total and the fish sold last minute was £50 and £125 so only £80 difference.

The boys just were slow but the girls werent any better organised. They started selling without pricing or knowing the products. They just got a better price last minute.

Both teams were poor imho but next week should be fun on the boys team with the sales boys and the "educated".

Played out IMO like a barely concealed stitch-up of the viewers, a public school arty toff who hates football and sneered at the thought of interacting with "salesmen" gets up Alan Sugar's nose and is kicked out in the first show, probably in order to get around the usual script of the useless project officer being booted out.

u mean Project manager

I think it was a nice change he didnt fire the PM, no matter how useless he was also. No one wants to be the PM because it automatically puts them in the firing line. I think they should figure out a better way of selecting PM each task rather than a volunteer stepping in.

Have you read Cagney-Lacey Brown bio on his website? (Lets gloss over the dreadful man with no imagination does surrealism paintings)

http://www.delacy-brown.com/biography.html

Quote:
It was Virgil who stated in his Ecologues: ‘Non omnia possumus omnes’ (We can’t all do everything), a statement which many have been happy to oblige. In Nicholas de Lacy-Brown however, there lies a man who is prepared to question such apathy. Undoubtedly a man of many talents, he has lived his short twenty-four years with a vivacity and boldness which few could achieve in a lifetime, most recently seen when standing up to the ruthless tongue of Alan Sugar as a contestant in the BBC show The Apprentice. However there is much more to Nicholas than could ever be ‘revealed’ in a ‘reality’ TV show; he is a brilliant musician, fluent in Spanish, a successful property developer and business man, has a pupillage at one of London’s most prestigious barrister chambers and, of course, is an artist.
And that's just the first of many paragraphs.

Just wondering where in the episode did Cagney-Lacey-Bollinger-doesn't know the price of a lobster - you are so beneath me-Brown got the idea that he did, and I quote "stand(ing) up to the ruthless tongue of Alan Sugar" - er no, I think you find you metaphorically **** yourself................

Raef IS related to Simon Jordan, surely?!

I though Nicholas (ol' Nick) would be the biggest **** just by seeing him at the Eurostar in the titles but Raef I think took that prize during the show. He is just a stream of pointless phrases and nonsense expressions.

Also, re: Alex - the 'regional sales manager'. Isn't that was David Brent was?

The inclusion of the Eurostar platforms gave away just how long ago this series was filmed, because they were the old platforms at Waterloo which closed almost six months ago. Within about two weeks of Eurostar leaving that terminal the place was completely stripped of any signs and they are certainly not parking any trains there so it was definitely forever ago.

It's just you - and 2 or 3 other people it would seem . I can sort of see what you mean but only when someone points it out.

Nick de lacy ponce reminds me of some ancient 2-D cardboard cutout style cartoon character but I can't for the life of me remember the character's name.

Lee, Alex, and Ian, all look like wannabe boy band members.

Based on this week I'd guess that a girl's going to win it.

Not what I was thinking of but very similar. Same era to what I can see in my head though.

Hoping in the following weeks for Claire Young to hide her bingo wings and Lucinda Ledgerwood ("the beret") to develop a look that ISN'T EXACTLY like Katie from the last series.........

and what is it with people's hair this series - particularly the blokes - don't barbers cut straight these days?
